Kazara created the topic: LA Weekly, Anti-#GamerGate Website Has 70% Of Staff Cut Following Buyout

Snippet -

LA Weekly has been around since 1978. Recently, however, Voice Media Group sold the outlet to the newly created start-up, Semanal Media, as reported by the LA Times on November 29th, 2017.

Former editor-in-chief, Mara Shalhoup, took to Twitter to lament the changing of the guard and the culling of her troops following Semanal Media’s completion of the buyout. Over the course of multiple tweets, Shalhoup explained…

“We were expecting there to be some pain with the sale of [LA Weekly]. But we weren’t expecting the Red Wedding. That’s how deep the cuts are. But first let me say what an incredible honor it has been to work at this legendary place, with this dream team of journalists.

The dream team—who recently earned 21 [LA Press Club] nominations—has been eviscerated. Nine of 13 editorial staffers are gone, including all five editors and all but one staff writer.

According to the reports, the print edition has also been axed.

And the Deep State whispered to Trump “You can’t withstand the storm,” to which Trump whispered back, “I am the storm.”
