Labor Cuts At Liberal Media Outlets, Hundreds Being Let Go
Major media outlets, including the Huffington Post, The New York Times, NBC, Vocativ, Newsweek and Time Inc., initiated major layoffs of their labor forces Tuesday and Wednesday.
TheNYT and Newsweek have been whispering about mass layoffs for the past
year, while HuffPost and Time made their cuts just this week. The move will put hundreds of journalists and media staff out of work while helping digital media continue its rise as the primary source of news and information.
Time announced that it will be laying off about 300 employees through a series of buyouts and
layoffs. The move will eliminate 4 percent of its workforce as it looks to cut costs in the midst of lagging sales.
HuffPost is offering its terminated workers a collectively bargained severance of two months’ salary, plus a week of pay for each year of service. Employees will also retain their benefits, including health insurance.

ESPN destroyed itself when it stopped being about sports. Whenever you make the decision to bring politics into your broadcast you should know you're going to lose a large percentage of the audience that disagrees with you. The amazing thing about ESPN is, they still haven't learned that lesson. They're having to sacrifice good employees like this young lady and they haven't changed at all. They're like alcoholics. They see the damage they're doing to themselves and everyone around them but, they just won't stop.
