Proof The Marxist Message Of Division Is Dead

Think of Salon as the Canary in a collapsed coal mine. :biggrin:

Salon struggling to pay its rent

Salon, the struggling digital publisher, is having trouble paying its rent.

A landlord who late last year evicted Salon from its New York offices for nonpayment of $90,000 in back rent is now trying to force the digital publisher to pay more than $700,000 for the unused portion of a five-year lease that is slated to run through September 2019.

A Facebook page dedicated to celebrating the 20th anniversary of digital media pioneer Salon is functioning as a crowdsourced eulogy.

Dozens of Salon alumni have, over the past several months, posted their favorite stories from and memories of the once-beloved liberal news site described as a “left-coast, interactive version of The New Yorker,” a progressive powerhouse that over the years has covered politics with a refreshing aggressiveness, in a context that left plenty of room for provocative personal essays and award-winning literary criticism.

“We were inmates who took over the journalistic asylum,” David Talbot, who founded the site in 1995, wrote on the Facebook page. “And we let it rip — we helped create online journalism, making it up as we went along. And we let nobody — investors, advertisers, the jealous media establishment, mad bombers, etc — get in our way.”

They are mourning a publication they barely recognize today.

Politico itself a left wing site did it's best with this article to make Salon look like more than it ever was.

I caught that too, but it was a stupid move when you think about it. They should have downplayed it as an inevitable, for lack of funding and ad sales, instead, they simply proved my point, that the leftist message is old and worn out, the country wants to return to Conservatism for a change.

If you think about it they were trailblazers. They embraced the failed far left message before the rest.
