As the Press Begins Laying Off "Journalists," Suddenly "Journalists" Discover That There Is an Actual Cost to Economic Shutdown

It didn't matter, and was a cost that could be cavalierly dismissed -- until our precious "journalists" started losing jobs.

Gannett announced Monday it is cutting pay and furloughing journalists at its newspapers across the country as ad revenue plunges during the coronavirus pandemic.

The publisher of more than 100 newspapers, including USA Today, the Detroit Free Press, The Columbus Dispatch and The Arizona Republic, is reportedly furloughing workers who make more than $38,000. Those employees will be subject to furloughs of one week per month in April, May and June, according to a tweet from investigative reporter Gregory Holman of the Springfield News-Leader in Missouri, a Gannett-owned paper.


And oh no! Buzzfeed is cutting its "journalists'" pay, too!

The horrors! How shall we go on?

BuzzFeed is cutting pay for its employees as the company attempts to weather the coronavirus pandemic.

In an internal memo on Wednesday, the company announced a graduated salary reduction for the majority of employees for the months of April and May, adding that company brass would meet with the news union to ratify the cuts.

Check out this CNN whine of a headline:

Hundreds of journalists are being laid off, right when the public needs them the most

We "need" them?

Last week, a senior "reporter" decided he would "investigate" and call the mother of a Twitter rando whose opinion he doesn't like.

Do we "need" him? Is he "essential personnel" in a time of crisis?

Anyone with eyes can see that reporters spend 90% of their time on Twitter, retweeting tweets, and vindictively, vengefully "investigating" Twitter users they disagree with.

They also deliberately push fake news, and then claim it was an "editing mistake:"

As far as I'm concerned, you can all fucking starve to death. I hope you all lose your jobs and you all wind up in the gutter.

Oh great: Enemy of the People merch.

I guess the press is doing just as much as Mike Lindell.

Remember a million years ago, when the Des Moines Register decided to wreck someone's life by digging up dirt on them?

The editor published the article, then canned the reporter when the public's anger reached the boiling point.

Why wasn't the editor sacked?

Most newsrooms are staffed with low pay/no pay interns, so they are safe for now.


The only people that make any real money are the editors, producers and "journalists."


Once producers and other higher ups start going on the chopping block you can expect to see articles along the lines of, "How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Learned to Love the Chinese Bat Virus, and We Should All Too."

As I was rambling about last thread, current journalists don't know anything about anything. J-school teaches nothing about anything save "journalism".

Thus the Gell-Mann amnesia thing.

When you have something of import, like a fucking epidemic, you need reporters who actually know a little about the subject. Same thing with everything else that comes up.

So rather than the press being made up of credentialed "journalists", you need them made of people from various fields that will be covered.

That's a change the media ought to make. Fire all the snowflake J-school grads and hire people from various other fields willing to play reporters on their subjects.

89 Well the melancholy truth is that the country *has* needed journalists - real ones, with real editors, producing real news - for a while. It's just that most of the ones currently working in the field don't meet this description.

For example, the last week or so, the task force briefings have featured usually at least a few good questions, which elicited important info (to those paying attention and thinking, anyway). Today's the part I've seen, has had quite a bit of this (and, a bit late, they brought out the charts and graphs and detail that's been missing).

So yeah, we need a real media - we just don't have it, generally.

172 Our local paper has taken down the paywall for important news on their site. They also have a couple reporters going out and doing video stories that are widely shared, like the 6-year-old who decorated all the windows on her corner-lot home with hearts to show her love to neighborhood friends.

The best journalism is local, because the reporters are accountable to their audience. The further up, the more crap writers there are.

And most, honestly, never took an ethics class (yes, there is such a thing) because they have English degrees and no job. Or they agreed to take unpaid internships for "the prestige" like that POS Times editor with the anti-white chip on her shoulder.

216 Trump, Feb. 26: "This is a flu. This is like a flu."

Now try the whole quote, "They listened to a lot. Well, because this is a much different problem than Ebola. Ebola, you disintegrated, especially at the beginning. They've made a lot of progress now on Ebola. But with Ebola - we were talking about it before - you disintegrated. If you got Ebola, that was it.This one is different. Much different. This is a flu. This is like a flu. And this is a much different situation than Ebola.But - and we're working on Ebola right now, by the way. We're working on certain areas of the Congo. The Congo has Ebola and caused largely by the fact that they have war and people can't get there. We can now treat Ebola. In that - at that time, it was infectious and you couldn't treat it. Nobody knew anything about it. Nobody had ever heard of anything like this. So it's a much different situation."

Part of the reason Ebola didn't spread very far was because it would kill all of its hosts so quickly the victims didn't have as much time to interact with others and infect them. So it would kill a village or two, then starve of carriers.

Trump is plainly saying in this quote that Covid-19 is much more like the flu than like Ebola when it comes to the infected appearing healthy when they're infectious and its incubation time.

280 Last week, a senior "reporter" decided he would "investigate" and call the mother of a Twitter rando whose opinion he doesn't like.

I've read Marc Fisher's WaPo article in question.

The Twitter rando (McMillan), indeed, was a rando. But ... he'd already faced a firestorm on Twitter for those opinions (which I don't share either btw).

The WaPo reporter did his investigation and called said rando. Most of the resulting article is a balanced attempt to get McMillan's side out. Also McMillan's parents agree with McMillan (mostly) and were keen to get on the record.

There are a lot of bad journalists but Marc Fisher is one of the better ones, in this case.

324 Unfortunately, a "reporter" who still has a job with a Portland alt-weekly last year tried to incite a panic by claiming that right-wing "Proud Boys" were coming into Portland, and randomly assaulting homosexuals.

A very drunk lesbian fell down late one evening, injuring herself slightly, and was questioned by the police. She told the cops that she drunkenly fell. Hours later, she decided that it would sound better if she said that she was assaulted by a right-winger (and then established a GoFundMe to raise money for herself).

This "reporter" breathlessly reported on this, and spent several weeks using the alt-weekly to amplify reports of further assaults on social media, none of which was first-hand ("a friend of mine heard from a friend of xers..."). Angry meetings were held, demonstrations took place, people began panicking and other Portland media started "reporting" on this wholly imaginary series of assaults. This was all Trump's fault, of course.

Yeah, I really want that "reporter" to keep her job.

Maybe one of them could take he time to get to the bottom of something interesting like, oh I don't know, maybe "Fast and Furious' and find out exact who knew what and when and how the whole thing came about. And why nobody is in prison. That would be worth readding and make them a real hero that speaks truth to power.

Plus the city govt encouraged everyone to go to the chinese lunar festival in chinatown in manhattan in february to show unity with our chinese friends.

Plus nyc closed down businesses and schools later than anyone else and didnt take any of this seriously.

Oh, and everyone lives in tiny apartments in buildings that are mostly 60+ years old with communal elevators that no one ever cleans, and everyone has to touch shit constantly. Even outside of global pandemic times, nyc is incredibly dirty.

772 lahar is a lava flow, right?
Posted by: DB- just DB at March 31, 2020 08:03 PM (iTXRQ)

No, a mud flow of volcanic origin. May or may not be hot. Contains water, volcanic ash, rocks, and whatever else it bulldozes up on the way down slope.

America Needs Journalists.

775 I don't understand what the flummoxed Vuomo,was saying about "stockpiled" (warehoused, withheld from medical facilities) ventilators. It's not like ventilators disappear if hospitals keep a surplus on hand. If he expects an "apex" of demand, handing out ventilators early just gets ahead of the curve. SOme one explain why he was so indignant about the big pile of unused equipment being unused when hospitals want a safety margin on premises?

776 Journalists think we "need" them? Maby if they performed their jobs and provided us with facts so that we could read our own conclusions. What they actually do is lie to us in order to manipulate us into furthering their personal political agendas and careers. So long as they are doing this, they a a danger to the public. I'd suggest they learn to write code, but they are not smart enough to write code. That requires someone capable of productive labor and helping others.

777 Maybe we can quarantine them. Shemya, Attu and Kiska sound like good places.
Posted by: Hadrian the Seventh at March 31, 2020 06:44 PM (7rVsF)

What do you know of these places, Brother?
I spent a total of 7+ years on Shemya, on the front lines of the Cold War. Please don't send ignorant journo assholes out there, they will ruin the pristine environment.

778 Here Here! Tired of people saying we shouldn't wish bad things on people who hate us and want us to die horrible deaths. Screw that. I hope Jake Tapper becomes homeless and is eaten by wolves. I'll even throw red meat into his cardboard shack to make it happen.

If turds that float to the top of the cesspool are considered elite then sure, these people are "elite".

782 "As far as I'm concerned, you can all fucking starve to death. I hope you all lose your jobs and you all wind up in the gutter."

Yep. Feel exactly this way. Can't happen soon enough, actually.

783 Can't they learn to make face masks? (I wouldn't trust any 'code' they wrote.)

784 And everybody who pooh-poohed the CQ/HCQ+Z-pak+Zinc therapy shall automatically be deemed to have volunteered for the 'control' group.

(I know that's not how double-blind tests are supposed to work, but screw 'em. . .)

785 If you kill a guy in self-defense, you should get to keep his weapon/s as trophies.

Just my $0.02.
