From Capital New York:
Layoffs hit digital news site Salon today, POLITICO has learned.
A Salon spokeswoman said that six staffers were affected by the layoffs. Sources close to the company said that assistant managing editor Ruth Henrich and life editor Kim Brooks were among them.
It’s ironic that the CEO of Salon is a woman, considering the rampant pedophilia advocacy and normalization that goes on there.
The situation at Buzzfeed isn’t much better, as they have cut their 2016 forecasts in half:
BuzzFeed’s doing fine. So is the digital media business. Everything’s going to be great, as long as you understand that everything is changing.
That’s the message from BuzzFeed chairman Ken Lerer, who disputes an industry-rattling report that the company has “slashed” its projections for 2016 after missing last year’s goals.
“Anyone who thinks that this isn’t a terrific time to be in digital content is dead wrong,” Lerer says. “It’s a fantastic time.”
Looks like the left wing blogosphere might starting the meltdown process.
