Woke/Broke: HBO Cancels Vice Show, Making This Worthless Website Even More Worthless

Vice had been heavily invested in by Disney (of course), owning a "blended" 21% stake. (I don't know what "blended" means in this context.)

Disney has had to, in two chunks, write off the entire value of that investment.

Walt Disney Co. wrote off the rest of its investment in Vice Media, reflecting the ongoing troubles at the onetime media darling.

The charge of $353 million in the fiscal second quarter marked the second time in the last year that Disney has taken a hit on the investment.

...

At one point the business was valued at $5.7 billion.

Disney had previously taken a $157 million write-down.

Vice's traffic is "sluggish" because, inter alia, it's woke garbage-shit.

One thing they had going for them is that annoying show on HBO that's always on because it's dirt cheap and barely costs HBO anything.

Well, that's all done now.

HBO has canceled Vice News Tonight, putting an end to its seven-year relationship with Vice Media.

The architect of that show, news chief Josh Tyrangiel, will depart Vice this summer after nearly four years of, per a memo he sent to staff, "harrowing challenges and huge highs" with the company.

But mostly harrowing challenges. I imagine the only "huge highs" came when they conned investors into giving them millions and millions of dollars to pour into a huge money-pit and set ablaze.

The harrowing challenges ensued immediately after.

I'm guessing, at least.

I have a bad feeling that #Woke Netflix, possibly even more #Woke than HBO (possibly!), might come in and offer them some pocket change for their very very shitty woke content.

Update: This Is a Disney Property?

Bisexual Women Explain Why They Hate Being 'Unicorn Hunted' for Threesomes

As nonmonogamous dating and polyamory have become more popular, the practice of couples using dating apps to deceive women into being their mythical 'third' is on the rise.

21 I think we're at a bit of a crossroads here. If Trump is reelected I suspect we'll see a bit of a cultural shift. Not to conservatism, but away from the extreme woke crap in advertising, business etc. I don't think we'll see a reversal, just a slowing and maybe halt to the march leftward.

Most people, by a large majority, were uncomfortable with this crap to begin with, are sick of it now, and want it all to stop. Businesses like Vice got a huge cash infusion in recent years on the assumption that the nation was going to full tilt to the left, but that hasn't happened and I think a lot of these investments are going to be reexamined.

Plus, a bunch of them were invested in all around the same time and those investments are timing out, and since they are a dumpster fire going through cash with zero gains and deep humiliation, I suspect they won't last much longer.

Basically places like Vice were able to convince big investors that they'd make big bank by clickbait leftist crap and playing into outrage, like the internet bubble of the late 90s. That can work, for a little while but eventually people wise up.

There will always be the idiots like Carlos Slim who dump money into New York Times even though its a money drain, but not for all these online magazines and websites.

While watching the GoT final season, HBO would run promos of their upcoming shows and other than the Deadwood movie, there wasn't a single show that I really felt like catching. That "Euphoria" or whatever show looked positively revolting.
Netflix isn't much better. I want to watch a good action adventure flick or series with a stoic toxic male main character whose job is to kill the bad guy and get the girl .... good luck with that. All you'll get are endless recommendations of girl power, 95lbs girls beating the snot out of linebackers shows.

98 So the House of Mouse has taken write-downs of $500 million for this pile of hot garbage known as Vice?

Which begs the question why the family-friendly (allegedly) company founded by Disney would want to be associated with a product calling itself VICE.

Vices are by definition not family friendly. They destroy families and leave destruction in their wake.

100 62 Speaking of Netflix and HBO - it's just sad that I can't seem to find ANYTHING on them anymore to watch. While watching the GoT final season, HBO would run promos of their upcoming shows and other than the Deadwood movie, there wasn't a single show that I really felt like catching. That "Euphoria" or whatever show looked positively revolting.
Netflix isn't much better. I want to watch a good action adventure flick or series with a stoic toxic male main character whose job is to kill the bad guy and get the girl .... good luck with that. All you'll get are endless recommendations of girl power, 95lbs girls beating the snot out of linebackers shows.

If there isn't much of a barrier then that means you can have multiple players coming and going and anyone player is going to reflect that in being of very little particular worth.

165 OT

That tablet magazine article from two posts back is shit.


I got as far as the first graph "Before criticizing someone from another racial or ethnic group, how often do you try to imagine how you would feel if you were in their place?"

This is a survey question. They are trying to make claims about how different groups (liberals, conservatives, ...) feel about certain subjects and how those attitudes have changed over time. But this is not science. Science does not ask the electrons how they "feel" about the magnetic field they are in.

Are they finding out how attitudes have changed, or how the amount of lying on surveys has changed.

Science is when you measure how much MONEY they spend on helping the poor. Or whether they send their kid to an inner city school in order to be more fair to the minorities.

Science is not asking how they feel about immigration, but measuring what they do when the city decides to build an immigration center across the street, or to send immigrant kids to their local school and start teaching classes bilingual.

The whole field is just crap. I got pissed just reading the 5 personality traits they use to characterize things. Instead of taking the conclusions at face value, Ace should have tore apart the whole article. Sure, it might say stuff we agree with, or stuff we think is going on, but if you want reassurance go talk to your grandma and leave science to the real men.

(again, I apologize. it is 4:00 am and I have a headache.)

I think we're at a bit of a crossroads here. If Trump is reelected I
suspect we'll see a bit of a cultural shift. Not to conservatism, but
away from the extreme woke crap in advertising, business etc. I don't
think we'll see a reversal, just a slowing and maybe halt to the march
leftward."

I think there are better than even odds that it'll devolve into some manner of open conflict. These people are not going to just back down and roll over.

Poor dears. Where, precisely is the "deception?" What about "I am non-monogamous and like to play for both teams" in your profile makes it "deceptive" for a couple to ping you because they're looking for their "third?" Is it that the couple isn't hot? I'll bet it's because the couple isn't hot.

249 The 73rd Tony Awards hit an all-time low in Sunday's ratings, falling below 6 million viewers for the first time. ABC's Sunday game shows also premiered to low numbers.

The CBS broadcast of the awards averaged 5.46 million viewers, down about 14 percent from the 2018 Tonys. The previous low for the awards was 6 million in 2012 and 2017.

The show also reached a low in adults 18-49 with a 0.8 rating, down from 1.0 a year ago.

257 I think we're at a bit of a crossroads here. If Trump is reelected I
suspect we'll see a bit of a cultural shift. Not to conservatism, but
away from the extreme woke crap in advertising, business etc. I don't
think we'll see a reversal, just a slowing and maybe halt to the march
leftward."

..
I think there are better than even odds that it'll devolve into some manner of open conflict. These people are not going to just back down and roll over.

It's not just businesses adopting these things because they think it's effective; after years of booting out non-conformists and hiring based on "culture fit", it's just who those people are.

I have seen a lot of this in the Si valley.

A lot of money is spent. I think mostly on travel and catering, but also consultants and bonuses. That is the real money from investors or shareholders. Those people lose out.

As for "valuation", that is money that never existed. It is not money, but what someone thinks it will be worth. So you own a share that you paid $10 for, and after a year they tell you it is worth $100. A lot of it is in options so you couldn't sell it anyway. Then one day they tell you it is worth nothing.

The trick is to turn a lot of investor money into employee bonuses before the valuation crashes.

379 I'm sorry but, does this Silver Star citation sound weak-assed?

For gallantry in action in the vicinity of Port Moresby and Salamaua, New Guinea, on June 9, 1942. While on a mission of obtaining information in the Southwest Pacific area, Lieutenant Commander Johnson, in order to obtain personal knowledge of combat conditions, volunteered as an observer on a hazardous aerial combat mission over hostile positions in New Guinea. As our planes neared the target area they were intercepted by eight hostile fighters. When, at this time, the plane in which Lieutenant Commander Johnson was an observer, developed mechanical trouble and was forced to turn back alone, presenting a favorable target to the enemy fighters, he evidenced marked coolness in spite of the hazards involved. His gallant actions enabled him to obtain and return with valuable information.

So he is awarded a Silver Star, for being on a plane that experience mechanical trouble, after he returns to Congress.

384 The Vatican has issued a document rejecting the idea that people can choose or change their genders.

Isn't this basically an RFC unless the Pope declares it ex cathedra?

Dude, gender is not a theory.



All of nature adheres. Except a few disturbed loonies.

387 Like the kid in 7th grade who told me a year after Star Wars came out that Luke and Leia were brother and sister, and Darth Vader was their dad. How the hell he could have possibly known that I have no idea.

388 CNN pays the airports. It inflates their number of viewers which relates to what they charge for ads. One day a major advertiser is going to figure out how many people at an airport are watching CNN and how many are watching their phones or tablets and that source is going to dry up.

Wasn't my point... And if the news at the airport was telling the truth, people would watch more.

My point was that taking over a familiar institution to push your message is an extremely effective tactic that we could stand to learn.

389 379 I'm sorry but, does this Silver Star citation sound weak-assed?

For gallantry in action in the vicinity of Port Moresby and Salamaua, New Guinea, on June 9, 1942. While on a mission of obtaining information in the Southwest Pacific area, Lieutenant Commander Johnson, in order to obtain personal knowledge of combat conditions, volunteered as an observer on a hazardous aerial combat mission over hostile positions in New Guinea. As our planes neared the target area they were intercepted by eight hostile fighters. When, at this time, the plane in which Lieutenant Commander Johnson was an observer, developed mechanical trouble and was forced to turn back alone, presenting a favorable target to the enemy fighters, he evidenced marked coolness in spite of the hazards involved. His gallant actions enabled him to obtain and return with valuable information.

So he is awarded a Silver Star, for being on a plane that experience mechanical trouble, after he returns to Congress.

That IS weaksauce. But most awards are political. Most heroes get overlooked when it comes time to add bits of tin.

As always.WHERE DID ALL THE MONEY GO?

Not the inflated assessed value. The actual hundreds of millions of dollars of cash that disappeared. What did they spend it on?

394 CNN pays the airports. It inflates their number of viewers which relates to what they charge for ads.

Again, this is where I call on everyone to contact their local airport(s) and request that they remove CNN from the monitors.

Mine gave me some kind of wimpy "the vendors choose what's on the monitors" line

396 CNN. For a 24 hour network to close divisions and overseas offices is as good as saying that without a miracle they're done.

Wish we had some billionaire on our side to do what the Progs would do. Buy it (because it still has the airport contract), replace everyone with Trumpian / Jacksonian /Etc. types, and actually tell stuff out way (IE, real news).

Yes. Do a daily 30 minutes on crimes committed by illegals and the true cost to Americans.

NO NO NO

Straight news that includes crime by illegals. This is not hard, but apparently it's now racist to do this or furnish police suspect appearance info unless the perp is white. Or is a white Hispanic. Or is not Shaun King or Rachel Dolezal.

Meanwhile, in a real march to be proud of, one of our parishioners, a WWII vet, was the Honorary Grand marshal at Washington DC's Memorial Day Parade.
