Somebody on Twitter had written "Woke is the opposite of fascist," to which I replied "Woke isn't the opposite of fascist. Woke is the opposite of rational."

These people aren't rational.

It's apparent that what's awakened is not the ego or superego but rather the emotional Id. Me-centric and rather fascist in nature.

Musk Bezos is a evil billionaire for cutting dead weight. End of democracy. Boycotts, investigations, and lots of crying is what we need right now to stand up to the patriarchy and 1%. Bezos should be forced to keep the employees even with the company losing money, firing them will lead to harm to the LGBTQ community and disproportionately affect BIPOCs and other historically disadvantaged people.

He's pretty much Hitler, maybe worse, maybe he's Trumpian.

When did it sink ?.

When I lived in DC this was the best paper in America.. Now it's just trash.

Fire everyone and "rebirth" it.

These days only the WSJ is worth reading.

Yep. Even the NYT was worth reading back then.I read the WSJ daily and it has indeed evolved to become more than just a financial paper.

The media they fought hard to get Trump for 4 years, maligned, debated, fake news.

They actually didn't see Trump was keeping them in business, helping them sell advertising, which creates revenue which equals jobs.

That Socialistic mindset kept them from seeing the inevitable fall and dismantling of their businesses. No stories that people want to read, no advertising revenue.

They could have attacked him some and pushed him up for the things he did well, get Trump re-elected and have 4 more years of good sales.

Oh well maybe Beezoo's will call the new CEO of Amazon and tell him to hire them to drive packages part time for the holidays...

The Washington Post Lays Off 20 People

It will close KidsPost and Launcher, its video-game and esports vertical.

WRITTEN BY ANDREW BEAUJON | PUBLISHED ON JANUARY 24, 2023

Last month Washington Post publisher Fred Ryan told employees that layoffs were imminent. On Tuesday the company began to institute them. The Post eliminated 20 newsroom positions and won’t fill 30 open jobs, Executive Editor Sally Buzbee told staffers in a memo.

Management, Buzbee says, “prioritized the elimination of vacancies to minimize the impact on employees” and also decided to eliminate “currently filled positions we concluded are not essential to serving our competitive needs.” Among those non-essentially competitive budget lines are KidsPost and the Post’s video game and esports vertical, Launcher, which it began in 2019. The Post’s PR operation has not responded to multiple requests for comment.

The Post’s union, however, had plenty to say: “we believe any job eliminations right now are unacceptable,” it says in a statement. “The number should be zero.” Management, the union contends, has provided “no clear explanation for why the layoffs are happening” and believes the layoffs “are not financially necessary or rooted in any coherent business plan from Fred Ryan, who said at the same town hall that he expects the company to be larger a year from now...”

Then you must have lived in DC back in the 60's because the Washington Post has been trash as long as I have been alive.
