Heat St. Website Folding; Greta Van Sustern Leaving MSNBC

It started out as a decent internet venture, until co-founder Louise Mensch began, well, let's say "her episodes."

Apparently those episodes were part of the reason Fox News didn't want to buy it. (Though it's still owned by News Corp, Fox's parent company -- it will be folded into News Corp's "MarketWatch.)

News Corp's conservative digital media site Heat Street is folding in August, the company told BuzzFeed News on Thursday.

...

Heat Street, which has about 15 employees, launched as a right-of-center digital media upstart in an increasingly crowded conservative media field, taking on sites like Breitbart, the Daily Caller, IJR, and the Blaze.

Fox News had explored acquiring Heat Street, The Wall Street Journal reported in May. Two people familiar with the matter confirmed the talks to BuzzFeed News. One of the people said that Rupert Murdoch, who controls both News Corp and 21st Century Fox, pushed for the deal, but that Fox didn't want to take on the property, in part because Mensch's recent Twitter crusade.

Meanwhile, MSNBC and Greta Van Susteren are splitsville:

[A] few days shy of her six-month mark on air, Van Susteren’s business is finished on MSNBC, according to people familiar with the situation. The anchor, whose show struggled to gain traction even as the rest of her colleagues were buoyed by anti-Trump hysteria, has parted ways with the network. She will not appear on the show on Thursday evening. She will be permanently replaced by Ari Melber, the network’s chief legal correspondent and host of the The Point on weekends. He will continue to appear across NBC and MSNBC shows as he takes over the 6 p.m. slot next month. (MSNBC and NBC News declined to comment. Reached by phone Thursday afternoon, Van Susteren had no comment.)

21 I actually wrote for a conservative startup website, and they gave it like 3 months, then stopped paying anyone and folded shop because it didn't make money.

That is not how you do business. You assume losses the first year while you build clientele. The right is way too fixated on making money and succeeding and not enough on the long slog and getting the word out even if it is hard going.

Huffington Post is still a net loser. They don't close up shop, because they know its a useful outlet for their spin.

She was a better-than-average interviewer. Generally had a good sense of when to let her guest talk and when to gently pull the reins to keep control of the interview, without walking all over them.

Of course, the last time I watched her do interviews was about 8-10 years ago.

30 Greta had a very friendly relationship with Trump. I'm sure being surrounded by RUSSIA! TRUMP IS MENTALLY ILL! TRUMP IS THE DEVIL! weighed on her.

I always respected her. She damned near single-handedly got the Marine out of prison in Mexico. With no help from his CiC Prissypants.

I think that is true for Hollywood also. They have a lot of expenses to cover and not all movies make a profit. As long as most of their money comes home to roost, and as long as they can find more investors looking for the right vehicle, they can continue to make movies.

I would guess that blogging is a lot like that, the more money you make, the more expenses you have to cover.

I, of course, am doing it for the love of words, and not for the money.

Best interviewer they had. She could actually let the guest be the star and just nudge em along. She could actually even get Limbaugh on her show and he really doesn't like doing TV. Never was even clear on why FNC canned her. Ah well, maybe Bill O's new network will pick her up?

Hmm.

Moronic cooking.

Freemoronry.

Scottish Whisky Rite of the Exalted Free Morons.

33rd Degree Freemoron.

Freemorons wear hobo-leather work aprons and all know the secret dick-shake (or boobshake, in the case of Freemoronettes).

Is This Something?

211 Sounds like the 'ettes are waxing euphoric over knick-knacks, that bane of male existence.

A friend's wife is a (not) recovering knick-knack collector. There literally isn't a horizontal surface in their house that doesn't have half a dozen knick-knacks on it. (I'm not exaggerating.)

My friend said that when his wife went on a trip he toyed with the idea of renting a dumpster, but decided against it.

But he was considering the strategem of another friend, who gave one of his buddies a couple of hundred bucks, then talked his wife into having a yard sale of knick-knacks, which the buddy then bought and threw away.

Pure genius.

My parents were married for forty years, right up until my Mom passed away. I watched them over the years, obviously, and I think one of the things that they did that really worked for them was not getting worked up about always doing stuff together. They did, but they also had their own spaces and did their own things. There wasn't any of this whining about we have to do everything together always. It really worked well for them.

Oh my gosh. +100 on that. But not why you think.

About 10 years ago I broke my ankle and couldn't drive for two months. None of my kids were old enough to drive. So my husband would take me grocery shopping.

It would take F O R E V E R. I'd leave him behind in aisles and hobble back to find him holding a can of yams and marveling at all the different brands of them. I'm not kidding.

275 When I was in seventh grade, I took a class called "Mechanical Drawing" -- basically, how to do architectural and engineering blueprints. (It was an elective you could take to get out of "Shop" or "Home Ec.") Was a great class -- should be a requirement, actually.

Anyway, in the class, the teacher handed out these erasers designed to erase all the mistakes we were inevitably going to make. When I first used it -- made out of some white rubbery substance -- I thought to myself, "Damn, this is a good freakin' eraser!" It was pretty big, too.

At the end of class, I kept the eraser -- even after one semester's use, it was still 98% intact. And for the rest of junior high and high school, it was my go-to eraser -- the best eraser I had ever encountered.

Then I brought it to college. Used it there too.

Then I got my own place and tossed it into the desk drawer, where I continued to use it.

Fast forward to today, Xxx years later, and I STILL am using that eraser! Barely even half gone by now. Truly the best eraser ever made.

Anyway, I relate this tale to explain the kind of life I lead, when it comes to product consumption. I hang on to the good stuff, and just use it forever. The same it true of many many other objects in my life. (For example, when my grandfather died when I was a kid, I "inherited" a pair of pliers he had in his garage. "Drop-forged in Utica, New York" it has stamped on it. To this day, I use that pair of pliers, and have never bought a replacement. Etc.)

I mean, get the basics that can be used in anything but also get specific things for specific food I can make if only I had the supplies. The frustrating thing is that a lot of it won't last the whole month and we only get groceries once a month so I get real creative interesting stuff done the first week or so then its down to what survives longer on the shelf.

And more importantly, it did provide guys with the sense that they could do a lot of things. Maybe not super well, but do them to some degree, and that's worth something. It was kind of an inoculation against Pajama Boyism.

A lot of that is because we know this place is special and don't want it taken away. Hmm, I guess it's similar to how we feel protective of the U.S., but I hadn't thought of that before.

As for specific jackassery, most of us recognize that we have our own "issues" and so manage to be pretty tolerant of others. Which is in return a big part of what makes the HQ special.

Posted by: Christopher R Taylor at June 29, 2017 07:25 PM (39g3+)


Here's my take/guess: women shop partly for social hierarchy reasons, seen most notably in clothes shopping. The question is where having this item would place them in the social hierarchy. Is it last year's fashion? Anathema. Is it chic right now? Let me at it.

Men generally don't care about that (except in respect of cars); they buy something because they need it and/or want it, and don't really consider how "the guys" will view it.

I like Harbor Freight just because I find tools that make DIY tasks so much easier. I've learned that it's worthwhile buying the right tool (whether or not at Harbor Freight) for a job, even if you think the job will never come up again. Because it invariably does, sooner or later.

My parents were married for forty years, right up until my Mom
passed away. I watched them over the years, obviously, and I think one
of the things that they did that really worked for them was not getting
worked up about always doing stuff together. They did, but they also had
their own spaces and did their own things. There wasn't any of this
whining about we have to do everything together always. It really worked
well for them.

And God knows, I've tried. How I've tried. No matter how hard I try, and how many times I think "this is the one," when I check, it's screwed up a bit in at least one respect.

Grrr.

400 I was drafting when in high school, had summer jobs when beginning engineering school in an old school drafting room. The company had many of its old machinery prints done on linen using ink, and I learned to ink when doing updates.

Learned it well enough to hand-draw structural steel details getting $100 per sheet when an engineering student.

I build in wood for fun and sometimes profit, having built stuff from birdhouses to 4,000 sf houses, doing all the carpentry from frame to finish. Everything I have ever built started with CAD models, mostly in 3D. I cannot build organically.

The package I like best now is Sketchup, a super cool 3D modeling app. A lot of my work is up on the 3D Warehouse.

462 I guess I was really lucky. My late wife of 49 years absolutely hated to shop. I had to do it all. The worst was that if she went with me, about ten minutes after we got to the mall she was complaining that it was time to leave. And if I found something I really wanted to buy, she said "you don't need that," which was entirely beside the point of
"shopping" as I understand it.

When I showed up for my senior year in HS, they insisted that I take a bunch of stuff I that had ?? value to me, including speech and dramatic art (I am naturally dramatic and speak perfectly well). Latin, and mechanical drawing. I want across the campus (was in University High) and enrolled, was a U. senior at 19 and am a HS dropout to this day.

My man.

Thanks for the link.

I worked with a handyman for a year renovating my parents' house, and I marveled at his skill. He marveled at my inability to get anything square, plumb, or level. We became good friends, and working together and splitting the work essentially rebuilt the place from the fence to the roof. But I know my limitations only too well, and if there were a critical task that I knew I would screw up, I'd defer to him.

I'm proud, but not stupid!

Vacate the decision, hammer them with a statement, discredit them forever in history and law, and adjust the ruling to deal with their stupidity.

In the judicial system, who is actually "the boss" of the non-SCOTUS judges lower in the hierarchy? Do they answer to anyone directly? Are they accountable to some specific person or office?

Basically, who is the head ramrod who can discipline them when they keep going off the rails like this? I mean beyond just relying on SCOTUS to overrule their craptacular rulings?

Congress has the power to impeach judges and remove them from their position. They can also decide what federal courts are and are not able to decide on, their field of adjudication.

I don't remember off the top of my head but in 200 years of US history, I think it was less than a dozen federal judges have been impeached by congress, though. And there have been some truly horrendous things decided by judges. Almost all of them were guilty of various other crimes, not judicial incompetence or abuse of power.

522 You know, in the ancient pre-web days, people sometimes knew each other online through Bulletin Boards. These tended to have a locale because of phone rates, and so a majority of members would live in driving distance.

People used to meet at pizza places, and the gatherings were called MUPTs or Modem User Pizza Thingies.

Kind of cool that people over greater distances can share interests, but sad that physical gatherings are now an odd and rare thing (for such groups).

Too bad NextDoor is such a whiny needly schoolmarm's HOA-fest.

523 Good old harbor freight. Well it's like this, tools used to be made way better some years back, so if you have an older name brand tool its probably better than the current made stuff of the same brand. Since a lot of the name brand stuff is made in china these days, comparing that stuff to harbor fright Chinese stuff isn't much of a comparison. Older "professional" name brand tools pretty much shit on anything harbor freight sells.

I had stuff from harbor freight die pretty quick, and I had some stuff last. You have to know what to buy. Some of it is pretty good, some is absolute shit.

558 "Since a lot of the name brand stuff is made in china these days, comparing that stuff to harbor fright Chinese stuff isn't much of a comparison."

E.g., Pittsburgh and Stanley (Stanley may be WalMart's bitch.)

Posted by: bergerbilder at June 29, 2017 08:20 PM (lIZQs)


I use a lot of old world wood tools for building classical guitars, and Stanley used to have planes and chisels that were made in the UK, that whole Sheffield steel thing. Last time I went looking for a spare Stanley block plane I saw it was made in china. fuuuck that.

559 I bought a Harbor Freight chop saw for a several day project. Got all the way thru to the almost last cut and failed. I took it back and got a new one swapped out free. Then finished the project.

A couple of years later the replacement failed in the same way. Trigger switch. I replaced it with a better one.

Deer chili recipe:

I once was visiting a ranch family in Montana and they offered me some of their venison salami. I complimented the wife and she offered me the recipe. It started: Grind two deer and one-half hog, and went on from there. God knows what their chili recipe would have entailed.

I really dig the way this guy will stick a little two-tweet jab in first thing in the morning, then disappear and go do adult stuff the rest of the day while they stew in their own juices about it, spamming F5 on their browsers on his twitter timeline, waiting for Daddy to get back home from work.

It's glorious, I think.

595 I just tried making my popcorn recipe so I have all my ducks in a row before submitting it, and it didn't turn out quite like I expected. It still tastes fine, but the volume wasn't what it should be, which calls my measurements into question. There were also more unpopped kernels than usual.

I think maybe the popcorn might have been stale. I don't know if I have enough time to buy a fresh jar and try it again before the deadline.
