The old media business model is obsolete. This is more rearranging the deck chairs.

This won't save them.

It sounds as if they are motivated more by political correctness and feminist pressures than any kind of morality. Maybe they’ll replace the Page One Girl on alternate days with naked gays and lesbians.

Nope. That’s the point. Even the Germans have collapsed in the face of radical Feminazis. Pretty sad, really.

I’m sure I’m not the only one who finds it ironic that the more immoral women become, the more they insist upon feigning moral indignation. What a travesty.

Why didn't I learn about BILD sooner.

BILD, or built?

NSFW. It's not safe for home, either.

In this particular instance “civilization”, as it were, falls to good taste and moral ethics?
