  • "Everyone Is Shocked": CBS News Hit Hard by Layoffs

    05/27/2020 8:38:34 PM PDT · by 11th_VA · 108 replies
    "I’m really sorry," network president Susan Zirinsky said Wednesday on an all-staff Zoom meeting about the cuts. "There is not a person who won’t be missed." CBS News was hit hard by a round of corporate cost-cutting that saw "a single-digit percentage" of the network's news staffers laid off, according to an estimate given by network president Susan Zirinsky during a Wednesday afternoon all-hands conference. Based on the size of the news network — which totals more than 500 staffers — employees did the back-of-the-envelope math and estimated that about 50 staffers were cut, though the network has not said...

  • Nation columnist criticized for writing she'd vote for Biden if he 'boiled babies'

    The Nation columnist Katha Pollitt has come under criticism for a column in which she wrote that she would "vote for Joe Biden if he boiled babies and ate them" given the importance of ending President Trump's White House tenure.

    He's on-the-air, and on-fire. Rated one of America's Top 6 Talk Radio Show Hosts: Chris Plante from WMAL in DC. His show is the "prep work" for many other shows.

He's the guy we'd all like to sit down with and have a dbl-cheeseburger and a cold one, while talking about the state of America, and the crazies who are pulling the strings, behind-the-scenes.

    SACRAMENTO — In the most sweeping sign yet of the long-term impact of the coronavirus on American higher education, California State University, the nation’s largest four-year public university system, said on Tuesday that classes at its 23 campuses would be canceled for the fall semester, with instruction taking place almost exclusively online. The system is the first large American university to tell students they will not be returning to campus in the fall.

    Port of Seattle Police Officer and Special Forces Veteran Greg Anderson made an inspirational video reminding police officers they do not have unlimited powers. “I have seen officers around the country enforcing tyrannical orders; I was hoping it was a minority of officers, anymore, I am not so sure …” began Officer Anderson’s video. “We do not get to violate someone’s Constitutional Rights …” Officer Anderson is now on administrative leave, meaning, he will probably be fired. There is a GoFundMe to support Officer Anderson’s retention of a lawyer, you can give money right here.

    However, it's unclear whether any of the news outlets intend to repay the money, or how much they'll repay. The Tampa Bay newspaper, which received an $8.5 million loan, told Just the News on Thursday that its chairman and CEO, Paul Tash, says the federal government will "likely forgive much of the loan" and that the "remaining balance" will carry an interest rate of 1 percent. The Seattle Times received a $9.9 million PPP forgivable loan from the federal government. In its voluntary announcement of the loan, the Seattle Times stated that the loan is forgivable but didn't specify whether...
