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.

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.

Less than 16 hours after Chelsea Clinton announced she was pregnant, a lot of major news outlets started staring into the crystal ball of Chelsea’s womb, wondering what this currently floating zygotic multicellular being meant for the prospects of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign, which is also a floating, zygotic, multicellular being. Their answer: The immaculately conceived Clinton child could mean everything. And no, it’s not just the fact that having a grandchild could be personally fulfilling to Hillary and Bill (mazel tov, by the way), or that a cute baby would be a sweet cherry on top of Hillary’s already

One day after making an audio appearance on RT to ask Vladimir Putin about Russian surveillance operations, National Security Agency leaker Edward Snowden authored a Guardian column to clarify his intentions behind the question and push back on critics who suggest he was attempting to help whitewash the Russian president’s abuses. “Does Russia intercept, analyse or store millions of individuals’ communications?” Snowden asked Putin on Thursday, garnering a denial from Putin that included the statement: “We don’t have mass system of such interception. And according to our law it cannot exist.” Critics alleged that Snowden appeared in a scripted manner,

Police say a high school vice principal who had been rescued from a sinking South Korean ferry has been found hanging from a tree. The news of the death came Friday as rescuers scrambled to find hundreds of people still missing from the ferry and feared dead. The passengers included 325 second-year students from Danwon High School heading to a southern island on a four-day trip. The school vice principal found hanging Friday was identified as Kang Min-kyu, the lead guide for the school trip. No suicide note was found near the site, but Yonhap news agency reported that Kang

BISMARCK, N.D. — A federal judge on Wednesday overturned a North Dakota law that bans abortions when a fetal heartbeat can be detected, which can be as early as six weeks into pregnancy and before many women know they’re pregnant. U.S. District Judge Daniel Hovland said the law is “invalid and unconstitutional” and that it “cannot withstand a constitutional challenge.” The state attorney general said he was looking at whether to appeal the decision by the Bismarck-based judge. North Dakota is among several conservative states that have passed new abortion restrictions in recent years, but abortion rights supporters called

After devoting 15 minutes to a Barack Obama interview in the last 24 hours, CBS piled on with another seven minutes devoted to a "scary powerful" top aide. Charlie Rose offered a puff piece on Alyssa Mastromonaco, Obama´s deputy chief of staff. The CBS This Morning co-anchor on Thursday offered no tough questions and instead repeatedly underlined just how important she is. Rose marveled, "You know what somebody called you? Scary powerful." The co-host narrated, "We recently spoke to her about her low profile, high power role. Every time I read a piece about you, it talks about power."

At the same Clinton Foundation-sponsored event Thursday where Chelsea Clinton announced her first pregnancy to the world, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton took a question from a young, 19-year-old woman who chose to publicly reveal her status as an undocumented immigrant. “That was incredibly brave,” Clinton told the woman after she shared her story. The woman, who introduced herself as Nova, got emotional as she told Clinton and the other people in attendance that she was an undocumented immigrant. Struggling through tears, she continued, “I want to say that it’s been extremely difficult for me

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

Democratic Massachusetts Sen.

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'

WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates Wednesday in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger “more climate upheaval” around the globe.

The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

With Easter soon approaching, the Rev. Al Sharpton on Wednesday drew parallels between the resurrection of Jesus Christ and the resurrection of President Obama’s political career. Joining the “Tom Joyner Morning Show,” Mr. Sharpton said that his message for this Easter is that “no matter what the world may do to you unfairly, no matter how you’re crucified — nailed to the cross at home, or in your personal relationships, or on the job — that you can rise if you don’t lose yourself during the hard times and the challenges.” The reverend went on to say that Christ endured so much humiliation and unearned suffering leading up to his death,

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.
