I wonder how these newly-unemployed folk voted in the last election. I wonder if they regret their choice?

How would you like to wake up next to that every morning?

I have no pity for these 500 newly unemployed libtards. They got what they voted for. I guess they should have listened to us conservatives instead of believing that they are the only intelligent ones. Wonder how smart they feel now?

I’m sure they still “feel” a lot smarter than we...only now they also “feel” they’re victims of a miscarriage of justice. It’s somehow conservatives’ fault.

Time’s on the same glide path as Newsweak....It’s almost as thin as a pamphlet.

Note title of a post here earlier in the day:

“Author Of Book On 2012 Election: ‘Without Media Bias, America Would Vote Like Texas Or Kentucky”

A loss of 500 jobs at Time amounts to 500 fewer toadies licking the butts of this regime - it’s just a start, but with the stock price of the NYT in continual decline, loss of viewership at ABCCBSNBC, and metropolitan newspapers losing even their birdcage value, maybe there’s some hope for the future.

Anticipating the day that we see numbers like that laid off from local government positions for lack of federal funding.

Hatred for half (or more) of potential readers can hurt circulation. Add to that obvious bias, one side reporting and a total lack of curiosity about dem flaws and you’ve got a magazine going under.

Stupid has consequences. That said, life is good...

Yeah, I’m pretty sure they are blaming all of their woes on Republicans and conservatives.

They never take any responsibility for their actions, nor the actions of their chosen leaders.

Funny, when liberals vote they vote for their leader. When conservatives vote we vote for the best candidate for the job. The idea we have is that we are hiring someone we want to work for us, not rule us.

Just shows how far they have lost sight of what America is about.
