The Watchmen goes SJW and fully woke.

They took the Watchmen graphic novel and then made the big threat now an undercover "Alt-Right" militia with lots of diverse heroes fighting them.

Of course it's no adaptation - similarly like other current movies - they just take the core material and then do their SJW thing.



Right, this reminds me that the current Twilight Zone is bombing pretty badly. Not surprising the creator behind the modern show is Jordan Peele who doesn't make any piece of film without an agenda. Couldn't be happening to a better guy.

This story is pretty funny because the company literally went broke.

Quote:SURPRISE!! Panera’s Socialist Restaurant Closes Due to People Not Paying for Their Food

Imagine that.


Quote:Fast-forward to a total of five locations, in Chicago, Boston, St. Louis, Dearborn, and Portland.

Quote:Six months after opening in 2011, leaders saw things at the Oregon cafe they hadn’t seen in Missouri or Michigan. Grant High School students mobbed the cafe daily, ordering multiple meals and not paying for them. Homeless people came for every meal — every day — as if the cafe was a soup kitchen. Hollywood neighbors complained of an increase in crime and loitering.

I'm not sure what they expected would eventually happen.





The story is a hilarious one indeed. The idea that this kind of business would not attract scores of homeless, junkies, criminals as well as loitering youth - that eluded them.

-------------

Another long-forgotten get woke go broke experiment was executed by the American founding fathers in the first 2 years:





Ideally maybe in the future you could argue that humanity may be able to create a money-less society when technology takes care of most shitty jobs and people choose to work in a profession where they can serve while the few who are do-nothing bums are ostracized by society. But such a system can at best be an utopian idea. Currently a for-profit free market system is the best we can think of - best without usury, but that is a different topic.

So yeah - the US initially almost went belly-up as the settlers were utopian thinkers. Guess Whites were always some sort of dreamers and idealists.

Quote:CNN Axes Over 100 Staff, ‘More Layoffs Coming’

The artist formerly known as the Clinton News Network (CNN) announced this week that around 100 staff had “opted in” to voluntary buyouts of their contracts. That’s polite, public relations-talk for “we had to get rid of people”.

By Raheem Kassam | May 7, 2019

The artist formerly known as the Clinton News Network (CNN) announced this week that around 100 staff had “opted in” to voluntary buyouts of their contracts. That’s polite, public relations-talk for “we had to get rid of people”.

The television network – often at the receiving end of President Trump’s ire – has suffered immensely since its turn into a fully blown Trump Derangement Syndrome broadcaster.

Their line up of hosts is broadly unwatchable to the average American. How do I know? Because so few Americans watch it. So say their latest ratings.

According to Forbes, April was “CNN’s lowest-rated month among total viewers in nearly four years, since October 2015.”

“CNN’s Cuomo Primetime, which has been the network’s highest-rated hour, drew a total audience of 917,000 viewers in April, the show’s worst-ever performance.”

Now the network is buzzing with rumor of more lay offs, with even their highest profile talent holding onto the seat of their pants for what may come next:


To any responsibly run corporation, this would have seemed evident from the moment CNN hitched its wagon to ‘Crooked Hillary’ in the 2016 primaries.

But so convincing was the Clinton/Democratic Party machine it has almost single-handedly wiped the buttery smirk right off Anderson Cooper’s face.

Anyway, I said almost.

The network had an opportunity to reform its behavior and house style after the shocker of November 8th 2016. Instead, it doubled down.

Between the almost literal, fanciful pugilism of Jim Acosta in the White House, to the ‘Facts First’ advertisements which patronized America into genuinely believing an apple was a banana, simply because CNN said it wasn’t, the news network fully lost the plot.

It turns out the Russia collusion investigation was neither an apple, nor a banana after all. It was a lemon.

So CNN journalists are now reduced to telephoning social media companies urging them to take action over the latest right-winger who happens to have hurt their feelings during a Twitter debate.

It’s almost sad given the network’s early history of disrupting the established media modus operandi, beginning 38 years ago, in 1980.

ALAS, ALAS FOR CNN

Now the TV channel’s parent companies are scrambling to plug a hole worth about $170 billion in outstanding debt, there’s few better places to look than its frightfully underperforming news media arm.

Whomsoever took the editorial decision to pursue Trump with all the network’s might – facts be damned – should be shouldering the largest burden. Not the 100-or-so junior employees who probably earn an average of $50,000 a year between them.

The Hollywood Reporter has a line from inside.

“Everybody is bracing for a reorganization,” a senior producer at the network said. “There are all kinds of rumors about impending layoffs. Some think they will come this summer. Others say a big layoff won’t happen until after the election. All agree layoffs are coming, though.”

There’s more.

“We keep getting told no layoffs are pending,” another senior producer said. “But CNN routinely has layoffs, so I think everyone thinks it’s coming.”

The pragmatism of its employees perhaps reveals how dire the forecasting for the network is, internally.

A third source told the Hollywood Reporter: “I think a lot of these people just feel like this is the best it’s going to get…and they’re not going to get a buyout offer that’s better than this one. Once you turn it down, you can be let go with far less. It’s a bird-in-hand, essentially.”

And so the most trusted name in news has become the most busted name in news.

Perhaps most, like me, won’t miss it. Though there’s a small part in all of us who will miss Mark Dice’s impersonations of Stelter, and those ludicrous 8-person-panel discussions where every contributor gets to make their point in all of 3 words or less.

We got it, guys. “Orange man bad”.

But orange man won.

Quote:Salon Media in talks for $5M fire sale in last-ditch effort
By Keith J. Kelly | May 14, 2019 | 10:05pm | Updated

Salon Media Group, a one-time digital darling, has fallen on hard times. It lost its CEO of the past three years last week and appears to be on the brink of a deal to sell itself for a fire sale price of $5 million.

The struggling company said in a Securities and Exchange Commission filing on May 8 that it reached a deal to sell itself to a company called Salon.com LLC.

The filing contained no further info on the mystery buyer or buyers but said the deal would only require a $550,000 payment at closing. It said $100,000 would go to an escrow account and $500,000 was already paid as a deposit.

The remaining $3.85 million would be a promissory note payable in two installments over two years.

Even with those favorable terms, Salon issued a dire warning in the filing: “There can be no guarantee that the asset sale will be completed and, if not completed, we may have to file for bankruptcy and liquidation.”

CEO Jordan Hoffner, a one-time NBC and You Tube executive, resigned suddenly on May 3, according to the filing. He remains a company director but could not be reached for comment.

The SEC is also threatening to delist the penny stock for failure to file financial disclosure documents for more than a year. The company said it expected to be in compliance with SEC filing rules by June 7, but acknowledged that was way past the 15-day deadline the SEC had imposed.

Richard MacWilliams, a managing partner of Vista Capital Advisors and the chairman of the board of Salon Media, was named acting CEO. Trevor Calhoun, another board member and a partner at Humilis Holdings Capital Management, was appointed acting CFO, replacing Elizabeth Hambrecht, who resigned back in October.

Neither MacWilliams nor Calhoun returned calls seeking comment.

The left-leaning Web site was launched in San Francisco in 1995, staffed largely by refugees from a newspaper strike at the San Francisco Examiner. It went public in June 1999 valued at $107 million, but has lost money ever since.

For years, John Warnock, co-founder of Adobe Systems, and William Hambrecht, a venture capitalist (and father of former CFO Elizabeth) who was involved in the IPOs of Google, Amazon, Apple and Adobe Systems, injected cash to offset mounting losses.

Calls and emails to Hoffner, MacWilliams and Calhoun were not returned.

From the newspaper that bought you:

[Image: zndZT8I.jpg]

From Yahoo:

“From Salon’s founding until the end of 2015, the most recent data available, Warnock and Hambrecht have given the company nearly $20 million in cash advances, and Warnock also personally guaranteed a $1 million line of credit.”

Vice was also thrown $250m by a group including George Soros, on top of over $350m dumped in by Disney. Overall it looks like the company has $1 trillion thrown at it in the last four years. Article.

RE: Get woke, go broke
The metrics of this wokeness producing broke results is manifold.

Media companies:

+ their bias and insane cultural marxist views only attract a few radicals and slant the entire content making it unreadable for the majority. Contrary to common opinion - the overwhelming majority of people are just going along with the marxist crap out of necessity and not conviction. Also the insane leftists are missing a fundamental point - due to the decrease of White demographics, the media outlets like Salon or even CNN - they have a decreasing viewe number and better not talk about the advertising algorythms, because those must be insanely terrible for Salon.com - they attracted mostly broke Millennials while most with any decent income stayed far away from them.

RE: Get woke, go broke
They really go full wokeness now with the new Batwoman series:





The most insane example of uber-wokeness is the new Star Trek STD Discovery series.

It was the epitome of insanity:





And the reason for this is that this show was supposed to be the flagship that lets CBS start their streaming platform - they pump tens of millions of dollars into the show and ramp up the wokeness to levels never before seen.

So essentially they wanted to use the show to get subscribers in and validate their entire platform, but went full retard on it. They did not even wait for other seasons to slip in the nasty, they just came out with the dildo and said that you had to like it.

On top of it - when you go woke, you start to hire woke people who are usually incompetent, agenda-driven and plenty of women and diverse hires who are not really interested in the story. The hiring on merit is usually discarded instantly as surface values become the most pressing issues. At Marvel comics they were starting to literally looking for artists on Tumblr who LOOKED LIKE SOME MARVEL CHARACTERS AND PETITIONED MARVEL TO HIRE THEM!

Listerine got heat from both straights and gays for making their bottles gay.

Quote:Dental care brand Listerine has been criticised for releasing a “gay pride” themed mouthwash bottle design.

The rainbow flag design the bottle is wrapped is a symbol of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) pride movement.

Listerine ostensibly aims to jump on the bandwagon with its special-edition rainbow-striped bottles, currently being sold in pharmacies across America. They don’t appear to be sold in the UK, currently.

The bottles are part of a wider “Care With Pride” range created by Listerine’s parent company, Johnson & Johnson.

My tweet made the list.

I hate how the rainbow has been coopted like this. Rainbows were really popular in the 80s. They had no special meaning other than being a colorful design element and now they're permanently associated with homosexuality.
