Vice Media Tumbles, Set to Lay Off Large Numbers of Staff

With 2020 fast approaching, there is no doubt that “fake news” will again be a topic of discussion.  Will Vice still be around to contribute?

With the “news” industry becoming ever more saturated with inexperienced, fly by night companies, there are bound to be a number of disturbances in the industry.

One of the most notable as of late came from the folks at Buzzfeed, whose first true foray into “real news” was part of the disastrous Steele Dossier debacle.  Their latest, just days ago, was a supposed scoop regarding the testimony of former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen.  The goof was so bad that the famously private Mueller team was forced to publicly correct the fake news.

Buzzfeed was gutted by the incident, and their financial dire straits are becoming more apparent by the moment.

Now, it looks as though the fellow youth-news entrepreneurs over at Vice are struggling as well.

Vice Media joined the pool of news outlets cutting staff in an ongoing industry shakeup this year, it was revealed Friday.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, which broke the news that morning shortly before affected staffers were notified, some 250 employees were laid off, totaling roughly 10 percent of the company’s workforce.

Hours after THR’s article hit the web, reactions began pouring in on Twitter, some former workers announcing they’d lost their jobs.

One employee who survived the cuts told The Wrap’s Jon Levine that a range of staffers were impacted, from production assistants to more senior individuals, including a producer for Vice News Tonight’s 2017 report on violence in Charlottesville, Virginia.

Viceland, the television network created by Vice, is home to some of the stranger shows on television, reminding many of the early years of MTV…but with a whole lot more drugs.

With 2020 fast approaching, there is no doubt that “fake news” will again be a topic of discussion.  Will Vice still be around to contribute?  That’s the real question.

‘Aquaman’ Jason Momoa Tells Chris Pratt Not To Use Plastic Water Bottles; Pratt Responds With ‘You’re Completely Right.’

Published

Liberal Hollywood actors have a tendency to think more highly of themselves than they ought, and nothing points out this inflated ego than one crusader for a cause scolding a fellow actor for doing something that violates their delicate belief system. Which is precisely what happened when “Aquaman” star Jason Momoa took a swipe at his colleague, megastar Chris Pratt for using a plastic water bottle in a post he put up on social media. Here’s more from Daily Wire: Thankfully, however, Pratt diffused the situation with a gracious response, and Momoa followed that with a follow-up post calling Pratt an “inspiration.” “Bro [I] love [you] but [what the f***] on the water bottle,” Momoa complained in the comment section. “No single use plastic. [C]ome on.” The purpose of Pratt’s post was part of a collaboration with Amazon: “You’re probably wondering why I’m standing here, low key flexing, gazing into the distance… well, turns out I’m teaming up with [Amazon] to show you guys everything I use for my workouts, keeping active, and all that fun stuff to get you prepped for 2020,” the movie star captioned the gym photo.   View this post on Instagram   You’re probably wondering why I’m standing here, low key flexing, gazing into the distance… well, turns out I’m teaming up with @amazon to show you guys everything I use for my workouts, keeping active, and all that fun stuff to get you prepped for 2020. #FoundItOnAmazon #Amazon #Ad http://www.amazon.com/chrispratt A post shared by chris pratt (@prattprattpratt) on Dec 3, 2019 at 8:46am PST Pratt responded with, “Aquaman!

Kanye West Asked ‘Jesus Is King’ Employees To Abstain From Pre-Marital Sex; Says Porn Is ‘Not Okay’

Superstar rap artist Kanye West, who has been all over the news for the last few months due to his open proclamation of Christian conversion, recently opened up about the making of his latest album set to be released soon, “Jesus Is King,” saying he told employees working on the album they had to abstain from pre-marital sex. West also went on to slam pornography saying it’s “not okay.” Here’s more from The Daily Wire: “When collaborating with others on ‘Jesus Is King,’ West set up some lifestyle guidelines that they would have to abide by in order be part of the project,” Billboard reported. “Yeezy asked others to fast during portions of creating and also not partake in any premarital sex at times, which he knew would receive some blowback once it became public.” “There were times where I was asking people not to have premarital sex while they were working on the album,” West told Lowe, noting, “When people pray together and fast together, the power is increased.” The 42-year-old explained that he no longer views himself as a “slave” to the music industry, but as a “free” “son of God” spreading the gospel. West went on to talk about how he feels he has now been called to spread the gospel with his platform, noting how he used to talk about high fashion, alcohol, and others things that had a profound impact on his life. But now, however, all that’s changed. Jesus is what he’s all about now. “Now that I’m in service to Christ, my job is to spread the gospel, to let people know what Jesus has done for me. I’ve spread a lot of things. There was a time I was letting you know what high fashion had done for me, I was letting…
