It’s not just ‘Woke’ corporations lashing out at Twitter after Elon Musk’s increasingly hostile takeover of the social media platform. Now, a major broadcast network has launched a salvo at the tech giant by announcing it is refusing to tweet due to ‘uncertainty’ on the platform. “In light of the uncertainty around Twitter, and out of an abundance of caution, CBS News is pausing its activity on the social media site as a continues to monitor the platform,” CBS News National Correspondent Jonathan Vigliotti reported on Friday.
Indeed, CBS News’ last tweet came 16 hours ago, as of time of publication. CBS News is framing its decision as purported upheaval on Twitter due in part to his ultimatum to employees that they actually come to the office to work their jobs.
But much like the ‘Woke’ corporations that are pausing ads on Twitter following Musk’s buyout of the platform, there are scarce if any precedents for advertisers halting advertising on a social media platform, let alone media outlets refusing to post news stories, due to mass layoffs at a tech company.
As one tech observer noted, layoffs are now taking place throughout the entire sector. Recent Tech layoffs: Amazon: 10,000
Snapchat: 1,300 You’re hearing about it because it happening in tech. Meanwhile, nobody has cared to talk about small businesses struggling for the last 3 years… Indeed, Amazon is losing 10,000 employees and Facebook is losing 12,000 employees, which far exceed Twitter’s current estimate from the first and second waves of layoffs.
In the first round of layoffs, an estimated 4,000 Twitter employees were layoffs. In Musk’s recent round of terminations following his ultimatum that employees come into the office and work long hours, the actual number of jobs less appears to be far less than was originally reported.While […]
Yes, We Need Your Help
I hate being “that guy” who asks people to donate because I think our conservative news network is so crucial, but here I am…
When I left my cushy corporate job in 2017, I did so knowing that my family would have to make sacrifices. But I couldn’t continue to watch the nation slip into oblivion and was inspired by President Trump’s willingness to fight the good fight even at his own personal expense. What I didn’t realize then is that conservative media would be so heavily attacked, canceled, and defunded that the sacrifices would be extreme.
Many in this nation are struggling right now even though we weren’t struggling just a few years ago. I’m not alone. But I wake up every morning and operate the sites we’ve been able to build because there’s really no other choice. I refuse to be beholden to Big Tech like so many other conservative news outlets, which is why you won’t see Google ads here. With that said, it’s often challenging to pay the bills and it’s even harder to expand so we can get the America First message out to a wider audience.
The economic downturn has forced me to make a plea for help. Between cancel culture, lockdowns, and diminishing ad revenue, we need financial assistance in order to continue to spread the truth. We ask all who have the means, please donate through our Giving Fuel. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to expand our reach so the truth can get to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
We currently operate:
- NOQ Report
- Conservative Playlist
- Uncanceled News
- Based Underground
- Five other conservative news sites
I would even be willing to entertain investments and partnerships at this stage. I’ve turned them down in the past because editorial purity is extremely important. I’ll turn them down again if anyone wants us to start supporting RINOs or avoid “taboo” topics like voter fraud, vaccines, or transgender supremacy. But I’d talk to fellow America First patriots who want to help any (or all) of our 10 news sites. Hit me up at jdrucker (at) substack (dot) com if you’re interested.
For those who have the means and just want to help keep the mission of spreading a conservative, Christian message to the nation, please consider a generous donation.
