Oh no, who would have thought this was possible?


Leftist Journalist Admits Wokeness Is Just About Money And Clicks, Media Companies Purging Far Left. Amid the ongoing civil war in media between investors and woke journalists something amazing was published. A Former employee of a political sports website, Deadspin, admitted that the story here is not about idealistic journalists sticking to their integrity but in fact a staff that knows far left, woke, and social justice politics get more clicks than sports stories do.

One would probably like to know, why does a sports website write about Trump, the Democrats, and social justice issues anyway? Well now we have our answer.

Great Hill Partners bought the Gizmodo Media Group, which used to be led by Gawker. They now want the sports outlet Deadspin to "stick to sports" but the staff is convinced that woke outrage politics generates more traffic, and they are probably right.

But in the long term we are seeing these companies collapse. perhaps the wokeness is a short term gain heading for a long term loss. Clicks and traffic is not an audience, its ragebait. A Company needs paying subscribers to continue existing and it seems the staff don't realize it. All they know is that politics plays better than sports.

But if media companies wanted political content they could just launch a political website. Why have 7 political websites when you can just have one?










In short, overkill = woke politics is on its way out.

Knowing how much pain and suffering our slow demise will cause, giving up feels like a luxury I can't afford.



I get that man. I have not "given up" the cause, only optimism in it. I have lost enthusiasm for laying out the simple truth that human society is broken for people who still have a "side" to be on other than the side of humanity and our habitat, people who are still led by what politicians say, people who align themselves with sectarians spewing bigotry and division, people who see the distinction of race, people lost in media representation as truth. Yes, I do still fight the fight but I have no delusion that it shall be won, short of a complete collapse and the ensuing chaos. Then it will be up to the moral fibre of the survivors, if any.

I'm out.....have some fun. Eh?

A literal Nazi is probably not the best source for information on socialism, just saying.

Well, work less, which is good for the environment and the human psyche, gives you more time to pursue your true passion rather than slave for a boss who doesn't give a fuck about your well-being, just the surplus value of your labor.

Will the socialist gang that gave you the weekend off and the eight hour work day pull through and reduce it to six in the foreseeable future? One can hope.
