The Huffington Post announced the firing of 47 employees in internal communications at the media company on Tuesday, sending members of the establishment media into a flurry over supposed erosion of the news industry.
The Huffington Post’s union described itself as “devastated” following the firings, which terminated the employment of nearly 30% of the Huffington Post’s US employees. The layoffs were finalized after HuffPost completed a merger with Buzzfeed, another left-wing news company that rose to prominence in the last decade.
Today, we learned that 33 of our unit members — nearly 30% of our unit — are being laid off. Our union's statement: "We are devastated and infuriated, particularly after an exhausting year of covering a pandemic and working from home." (1/x) pic.twitter.com/xphgR3F8UI

We Often Feel Like David Taking on Giants
Today’s Goliath is the Mainstream Media Industrial Complex that brainwashes the masses.
Our mission is very straightforward: To counter the false narratives and nefarious agendas destroying America today. It isn’t easy for obvious reasons; despite incredible growth over the last year we are still a very tiny fish in a huge media pond. But we’re fighting and we will continue to do so, Lord willing, for as long as we possibly can. The battle for America’s present and future is too important for us to back down to the giants that stand in our way.
We need help. I don’t want to say “desperately,” but the need is definitely great. If you have the means, please donate through our GivingFuel page, PayPal, or our Substack page. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to get the truth to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
Thank you, and God Bless!
