Every time I see the “get woke go broke” shibboleth it annoys the living crap out of me, since to my knowledge there hasn’t been a single “woke” corporation that did anything but go right on thriving in the wake of boycotts, protests, and the like. At worst, they may take a temporary bottom-line hit in the early stages of whatever controversy crops up. But as time passes, tempers cool, attention wanes, and people resume their previous shopping habits, the wayward company or organization always seems to bounce back rather quickly.
Fingers and toes crossed for Faux “News” proving to be the exception.
Fox News is taking action to stave off newfound competition from Newsmax TV.
Producers on some Fox programs have been told to monitor Newsmax’s guest bookings and throw some sand in Newsmax’s gears by encouraging guests who appear on both channels to stop saying yes to the upstart.
According to Fox sources, producers were told to avoid some regular guests if they kept showing up on Newsmax after being encouraged to stop. Management’s goal: to remind guests who’s boss in the right-wing media world.
The cautionary note, from Ace.
CNN link. I wouldn’t click. This article is by CNN’s Chief Deplatforming Officer Tater, with additional reporting by their Senior Deplatforming Associate Oliver Darcy. It claims that all of Newsmax’s gains are due to “conspiracy theories,” because, of course.
Anything Tater doesn’t like is a “conspiracy theory.”
Except Russia Collusion, of course!
Fox News denies this. But they’re lying.
Of course they are. Despite the previous “get woke go broke” record of futility, though, there could be real hope for a spectacular augering-in this time around. I mean, think about it: does anybody really NEED another CNNBCBABPBS?
