Their government gravy train expired during the shutdown.

Hmm… Obama-era Act That Funded News Outlets To “Counter Disinformation And Propaganda” EXPIRED Right Around The Time Hundreds Of Far-Left Journalists Were Laid Off. Coincidence?

Here's a Voat thread:

https://voat.co/v/GreatAwakening/3011447

One of the comments to summarize:
Quote
I was not aware of this law. So we the people were paying their salaries to spread propaganda! Let that sink in to the tune of $160 million. The shit just keeps being revealed about how we were duped by these scoundrels. This includes all our crooked Congress people and Senate ( D's and R's) who approved these expenditures. Now President Trump's focus on fake news reveals a whole new can of worms. He says they will be defeated and this is part of that plan ---cut off their funding.

I'm sure there's more cooked into the swamp.

Thank f*n God for President Trump.

This was obviously just another leftist outreach program like VOA - Voice of America, where the left speaks to other leftists around the globe.
Remember when Bush gave the education system to Teddy? So this really shouldn't come as a surprise, this is the kind of shit we get with so called "Bipartisan Legislation", where both sides steal from the taxpayer, equally.
Until people quit reelecting GOP leftists, this shit will never end.

Over 2,100 axed so far.  The narrative is that Facebook is killing everyone with their news feed algo tweaks, and Google.

Quote
While the companies’ reasonings behind mass layoffs aren’t identical, there is a common thread: The cuts have less to do with the talent of the workers, and more to do with financial imperatives and the whims of investors. THR reports that Nancy Dubuc, CEO at Vice, seeks to decrease spending and increase profitability. HuffPost spokesperson told CNN that the site is “investing its talents and resources to areas that have high audience engagement, differentiation and are poised for growth at a time when our mission means more than ever.” And according to BuzzFeed CEO Jonah Peretti, who reportedly suggested that employees bring dogs to work on Monday as a means of raising morale, BuzzFeed is “restructuring” to “focus in on the content that is working, and achieve the right cost structure to support our multirevenue model.” (There is also speculation that BuzzFeed is preparing for a sale or merger.)

But employees are skeptical of these explanations, and many are laying the blame on Facebook and Google, which monopolize digital ad growth, as well as poor decisions on the management level.

“This isn’t happening because of market inefficiencies or consumer preferences or social value,” HuffPost senior reporter Zach Carter tweeted. “It’s happening because two very large companies have taken the advertising revenue that journalism outlets rely on and replaced it with nothing.”

I'll translate:

We've insulted 70% of the nation and the label of "Fake News" stuck. This has lead to a loss of revenue across the board.

The same reason why liberal talk radio has a severely limited audience. No one likes to listen to or read condescension, derision and hate.

Unfortunately for them, I think they're too stupid.  I saw one with a PhD in romantic comedies, with studies in gender.

Oh good God,,, I'll never get over the moment I saw her plea for help in finding a job.
She, he, it, is akin to competing for a job as a buggy whip maker in a market long dead for demand.
I look at these people and see a Dead concert letting out, and for whatever reason, they suddenly think they're qualified to work in the aerospace industry.

Even they have standards that most of these people could never meet. Such as, the appearance of personal hygiene, not melting down at the site of a MAGA hat, or simply being respectful to people whom are normal.
I don't know if the real 1% are actually employable.
