Tina Brown to Newsweek Staff:
Merry Christmas; You´re Fired

Breitbart News, by John Nolte

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 12/7/2012 3:13:22 AM

Like many of you, I´ve been through my share of these things -- you know, where some hotshot from corporate flies in, takes over the biggest office in the building, closes the door, and then one-by-one calls in those who will no longer be employed due to downsizing, or whatever the word of the day is. Harrowing stuff. But to do it over the holidays? Cold-blooded. Ouch: The sad moment has arrived when we must go forth with the editorial staff reductions that we discussed in person with all of you several weeks ago.

It is always a good day when a bunch of lefties are sent packing. Now, they can get in line for all of the 0bama handouts that they think are so great.

A liberal progressive finally faced with the reality of a failed liberal progressive magazine and firing other liberal progressives before X-Mas. Priceless.

Signed "Tina & Baba"?

Went and looked up Baba. It´s CEO Baba Shetty.

Fitting, though a strange spelling for this occasion...

I did the same thing, #4. Turns out, ´´Baba´´ Shetty was named Newsweek/Daily Beast´s CEO September 19, 2012.

So, Tina and ´´Baba´´ fire the help and get a pass - again - from being classified as those evil, greedy, capitalists. It must be nice to be a Democrat.

Jobless benefits are the best stimulus there is according to Chuckie Schumer. Now the Newsweek unemployed are finally contributing to Obamas booming economy
.And they are " happy holidays" people...not Merry Christmas people. Christmas sympathy does not apply.

Lefty loudmouths are forever being exposed for who they are: Capitalists (mostly the crony variety) who have gotten their share and more of the wealth while enthusiastically promoting the socialist agenda for everyone else. Instead of sharing their wealth by redistribution, they immediately start firing the underlings. Why isn´t their first thought to take from their own salaries and give it to their employees all for the common good, of course. Share the wealth, baby!

Meanwhile, the staff and excellent reporters at Breitbart.com are alive and well, and -yep- working.

There may be a correlation to the fact that Breitbart.com reports this story while the unfortunate Newsweek folk pack up the Obobblehead dolls and the pictures of their kids, but I doubt the Newsies will grasp it.

Why should this time of the year make the downsizing any worse than any other time? Only wingnuts make a big deal out of Christmas. And I´m sure Newsweek´s staff are all looking forward to the adventures they´ll have living on unemployment checks. The food stamps they get will be awesome as well. Just think - they supported Obama as working folk; now they can support him as members of the 47%!

/I suppose I should add a disclaimer for the sarcasm impaired.

Come on, Nolte, these are Lefties -- I´m sure none of them could care less about Christ´s birth -- although being fired will probably put a damper on their participation in the parties and buying sprees associated with the secular "holiday" celebrated in tandem with Christmas.

Meanwhile, Tina has undoubtedly reduced her staff levels to below 50 employees, thus relieving Newsweek from the burdens of Obamacare, which I´m sure she and all her employees supported wholeheartedly.

That being said, I doubt even this will save Newsweek.

This was THE tradition with the publisher I worked for in Denver. For eight years, the Friday before Christmas was known as Black Friday (long before the retail chant began)

If you survived the layoffs and terminations, you were invited to the Christmas Party.

The ad agency I was laid off from (twice) routinely has layoffs just before Christmas. That wasn´t my experience either time, but layoffs are part of its "holiday tradition."

A true liberal should have no faith and abhor the festivities associated with Christmas, thus the timing of this announcement should have no affect on them or their families, if they have one. Its just another month, week, and day, nothing special. If anyone complains about the timing they are exposed for the hypocrites they are.

147 immigrants found in

U.S. Border Control agents detained 147 people suspected of being in the country illegally from a stash house Thursday afternoon in Alton — shortly after 81 people were found hiding in makeshift huts in McAllen. The 147 people were discovered in a house at the 8900 block of North Bentsen Palm Drive. Border Patrol spokesman Danny Tirado said he didn’t recall the exact time of the bust, but said it was not too long after the 81 people were found in a brushy area of McAllen northwest of Sprague and North 10th Street about 1 p.m. The 147 people detained

Bunkersville, Nevada — Cliven Bundy’s ranch, recently the site of a tense stand-off that started over two weeks ago between the federal government and the Bundy family, had morphed into a good old-fashioned family picnic complete with live country music, hamburgers, and hotdogs Friday. A week after the Bureau of Land Management’s armed force left Bunkersville, Bundy and his supporters continue to make the family’s case relating to Bundy’s right to graze his cattle on public land his family has been on for many years. Bundy told Breitbart News the only communication he has received from the BLM recently has been

The president´s speeches may need to be accompanied by a laugh track from now on, considering the crickets he received at his appearance in Community College of Allegheny County, in Oakdale, Pa., on Wednesday. Although he tried to tout his new spending program, both Obama´s talking points and attempts at humor didn´t go over so well: At the end, when the president walked back from the podium to smile and wave at the roughly 60 people in the bleachers 20 feet behind him, he faced a unfriendly wall of faces. The White House video of the bleacher’s front rank shows three men with their hands crossed, one with his hands stuck

Two Democratic Party candidates in the primary race for California´s 33rd congressional district in West Los Angeles have accused local party officials of using an arbitrary fundraising minimum to favor established insiders--then raising that minimum at the last moment to exclude them from a recent candidates´ forum. Democrats Kristie Holmes and Barbara Mulvaney issued a joint press release earlier this week, accusing the Pacific Palisades Democratic Club (PPDC) of "uninviting" them from a forum on Sunday, April 13 "after first zealously pursuing them." Only candidates who participated were eligible for the club´s

WASHINGTON--Rushing to an afternoon vote last month, Sen. Ted Cruz hopped the underground tram to the U.S. Capitol from his office across the street. The Texan planted his black ostrich cowboy boots in the middle of the small subway car without getting so much as a nod from the other senators--Republican or Democrat--amiably chatting or huddled in their seats. Mr. Cruz finds himself standing alone a lot these days. His response to the cold shoulders: "The establishment despised Ronald Reagan" before he became president, "but the people loved him."

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too
