So @willchamberlain is like a shark who smells blood in the water and is seizing this opportunity to take Huffington Post's layoffs further. With the #HuffPoMustGo hashtag, people are advocating for the complete shutdown of the outlet. http://archive.is/Yi44T

Insiders: HuffPost Layoffs Hit 20 Employees Throughout Editorial

Jon Levine | January 24, 2019 @ 1:50 PM

The HuffPost layoffs which began rolling out Thursday will hit roughly 20 employees, all of whom will come from editorial, two company insiders confirmed to TheWrap on Thursday. While news of the layoffs first emerged Wednesday evening, the total number of affected employees had not previously been known.

In addition to the layoffs, the website will eliminate their opinion vertical and cease health enterprise reporting.

“A lot of confusion and frustration,” one employee told TheWrap describing the state of the newsroom. “People were getting calendar invites early in the morning up until the afternoon. The calendar invites were pretty much the sign that we were being laid off.”

“Today was very, very tense,” the employee added. “It doesn’t seem fair that good reporters are being laid off because of poor choices made by leadership.”

The cuts are part of a broad wave of layoffs at HuffPost’s parent company Verizon Media, which announced yesterday that they would shed seven percent of their overall workforce.

The Writers Guild of America, East confirmed that 15 union members at HuffPost lost their jobs in Thursday’s layoffs.

In a statement, the Writers Guild said, “Today is a tough day at HuffPost. A number of good people lost their jobs as part of company-wide layoffs, despite Verizon taking in nearly $4 billion in government funded tax breaks last year and a promise that workers will ‘share in the company’s success.’ This is one of the many reasons why staffs working in the media industry continue to join together to fight for workplace protections that include collectively bargained severance packages and fair layoff notifications. Everyone who works in media needs to organize their workplace.”

Reps for HuffPost did not respond to multiple requests for comment from TheWrap throughout the day Thursday, but individual employees of the website — many who have spent years there — began posting real time updates on Twitter.

“Hi all. So some sad news. As of this morning, HuffPost’s opinion section is no more. I and the rest of the team have been let go,” Bryan Maygers, the website’s opinion editor, tweeted. “Thanks to all the brilliant writers who contributed over the last year, you were what made this job fun.”

“My team @huffpost got eliminated today,” health enterprise reporter Lauren Weber, who joined the team last April, said. “It’s been a great ride, from building a Morning Email list of ~1 million people to covering Ebola’s resurgence. Grateful for the time I’ve had and ready to write for you on public health and more.”

The day of reckoning at the website was part of a broader week of layoffs that affected roughly 1,000 media industry jobs according to CNN. Also this week, Gannett trimmed staff across their newspapers titles, while BuzzFeed announced they would shed 15 percent of their workforce — or roughly 215 people.

In an email to staff Wednesday evening, CEO Jonah Peretti said the cuts were necessary to put the company on a sustainable path for the long term.

“Over the past few months, we’ve done extensive work examining the trends in our business and the evolving economics of the digital platforms,” he said. “We’ve developed a good understanding of where we can consolidate our teams, focus in on the content that is working, and achieve the right cost structure to support our multi-revenue model. We are confident the changes we are making will put us on a firm foundation and allow us to invest and grow sustainably for years to come.”
It doesn’t seem fair that good reporters are being laid off because of poor choices made by leadership.”

She should look at it as an abortion of unwanted and unneeded editorial drivel and celebrate Verizon's power of choice.

Who would have thought working to directly or even indirectly undermine your own civilization, would not be a viable plan in the long run...?

It was poor choices by management that created the department and hired them in the first place...

Oh please Buzzfeed, PLEASE be stupid and do an IPO one day.

Easiest money in my life.
In all seriousness, is there a way to short IPOs? When I heard SNAP was going public, I wanted to short it at the time but didn't know how that worked for IPOs.

Sort of in a way.

As determined by the Securities and Exchange Commission, which is in charge of IPO regulation in the United States, the underwriters of the IPO are not allowed to lend out shares for short sale for 30 days. On the other hand, institutional and retail investors can lend out their shares to investors who want to short them.

However, only a limited amount of shares would probably be available on the market as the company would've just started trading publicly and the shares may not have been completely transferred. Furthermore, there might be a lack of willingness among investors to lend their shares out to be short sold.

The comments on those "journalists'" twitter pages are savage and hilarious.
 
RE: BuzzFeed to Lay Off 100 Employees After Missing Revenue Targets

Arianna Huffington cashed out and bailed, making millions off the sale. Only the stupid fuck true believer millennials were left holding the bag. I can imagine the billionaire leftists get sick of the stupid fucks they have to keep on payroll. They're too dumb to see how they're being used until it's too late.

Nah man, cucking the entire white race of some 1 billion people for the low low price of some disposable $30k a year English-Lit hos? Those mensch are high fiving each other every time they disembark from their Learjets at pedophile island.

Real footage of leftist billionaire spontaneously thinking about the damage his paltry $50 mil investment of Fed-generated electrons inflicted on the cattle:



See how happy this guy is? That is genuine mirth of the highest degree! That kind of satisfaction can only be felt after you just finished dumping your load not into some random thot but into an entire civilization.

But hey, don't hate the player, hate the game. I'm not mad at (((them))), I'm mad I ain't them! (minus that whole pedo island thing of course)
