CNBC is trying to pretend journalism didn't collapse. Outlets are closing. Jobs are being lost and more so by the day.
And they are still in denial.
It is the gambit of trying to drum up support with a shrinking audience base is nothing new.
They are trying to stick it to Trump, as if he cared. If CNBC thinks stroking his ego by telling the world that he is the only fascinating person on the planet, gee, you tell him, guys.
The profession is still dead. It has been replaced by vindictive propaganda that is unimaginative.
Kids, you are not fooling anybody. Your arrogance won't save you.
On a personal note, I will be offline for a couple of weeks as I am making major changes to this website.
In structure and in content.
For the last few weeks, I have been having a peculiar technical issue with this site -- possibly malware or I have been hacked -- and as no one as been able to pinpoint the problem in that entire time I have been trying to resolve the issue, I will have to find an alternative.
The short answer is that words I write somehow change after my blog post gets published -- but when I go back to correct it -- the original writing flashes on the screen for a second before the word I didn't originally write comes back. This happens even when I cut and paste a passage in order to quote it.
I will chronicle that headache later.
So that's the structural side.
As for the content side, I am also dealing with some other personal matters, and I will be in a better position to know the direction I will go soon enough.
I have wanted to make a major shift here since January since pointing out the rot of the fallen arrogant isn't what I want to focus on because they are not worth my attention, or anyone else's.
My upcoming book will outline all that -- but it also discusses the future, and it is the solution that is more important than the problem caused by petty and myopic sheltered relics.
I keep saying journalism needs the alternative, and that's precisely what I will start when I come back. I have worked on this system for over twenty years, and I have been good to go for a while now. It is a blend of Chaser News and A Dangerous Woman -- with other things in the mix.
But how I can move forward with that all depends on how things unfold on my end.
