Get Woke, Go Broke: Washington Post Staff Meeting Erupts Into Chaos As Layoffs Announced After losing more than half a million subscribers in the past two years, did the far-left writers and employees at the Washington Post really think they would avoid any consequences?
It would appear that they are exactly as oblivious as many people suspected.
A recent hidden camera video has surfaced of the latest Washington Post employee “town hall” meeting, in which CEO Fredrick Ryan delivers the bad news that the company will be executing worker layoffs after subscription revenues plummeted.
Not surprisingly, the employees (presumably made up primarily of journalists) erupted into a mass chatter of squawking chickens, demanding answers as well as job guarantees.
The Washington Post has long operated as a mouthpiece/bullhorn for establishment propaganda, and has functioned as an attack dog against conservatives for years rather than an accurate news source. Specifically, the outlet’s use of fraudulent “fact checking” has contributed to a considerable decline in public trust, and this habit accelerated after Jeff Bezos acquired the Post in 2013. Amazon must not be doing so great this holiday season, and funds are drying up.
The corporate media is facing a reckoning this year going into 2023. Their audience numbers are in steep decline and have been since before the covid pandemic. While PPP loans and stimulus measures may have kept some of these outlets afloat, even that life raft is now disappearing along with ever shrinking ad revenues. The real culprit behind the fall of these companies, though, is themselves.
Woke zealotry does not sell. This is a fact proven time and time again, even more so in the past two years. When a media edifice chooses to cater to a tiny percentage of the population, many of them younger zennials with little to no money, it is only a matter of time before they face a profit collapse. The Washington Post is a victim of its own elitist ideology, and many of the employees are just as guilty as the leadership. Get woke, go broke.
The coal mines were hiring until you put them out of business.

Their usefulness as useful idiots has come to an end, so under the bus they go.
Now Jeff Bozos will have more money to buy more crap he doesn’t really need
Merry Christmas fake news
I never knew what TS meant until my mother told me it meant Tough Shoveling. Years later I found out it had another meaning.
Maybe Bozos can afford a wig for his egg now
Of course they did. The paper is owned by one of the world's richest and most powerful men. He should cut his income to underwrite their salaries in perpetuity. In fact, they deserve a raise and better benefits and more paid time off. Retroactive to 2019.
This explains a lot of the “journalism”in the WaPo. They sound like a bunch of stupid, spoiled little sh*ts. Maybe because that’s exactly what they are.
“Ryan delivers the bad news that the company will be executing worker layoffs.”
Damn..I thought they were going to be executing workers!
And the pipeline workers, Jeep people, and God knows how many others these filthy democrats have screwed.
WaPo underlings: “But, but you had us lie for you all these years. We sold out the American Way of Life for you. And now you shove us to the curb like used condoms?”
“Their usefulness as useful idiots has come to an end, so under the bus they go.”
Exactly. When are media dolts going to figure this out? Trump was their meal ticket.
RE: Love it.
Absolutely. They have done so much harm and arrogantly thought they were indispensable and it would go on forever.
Why isn’t the Washington Post reporting this?
That will happen if one goes berserk.
Liberals with guns are very dangerous when upset
