The Week Citizen Journalism Conquered The Corporate Media

The “mainstream” media, “corporate” media, “legacy” media, whatever you feel like calling it, is terminally ill. Only Democrats and neoconservatives latch onto it anymore, but it has been successfully discredited among the majority of Americans. Vice Media is going bankrupt, Fox is collapsing after terminating Tucker Carlson, and propagandist late night shows have withered away in ratings.

Corporate media hasn’t been profitable for several years, and was propped up by investor money. Some outlets were loss leaders for companies that make money from other divisions. Since the Federal Reserve started hiking interest rates, stocks have collapsed and the money is running out.

But more fundamentally, the Internet has empowered anyone with a laptop or smartphone to report the news, at a fraction of a percentage of the cost of the corporate outlets. Anyone with skill, talent, and cognitive function can succeed independently on YouTube, Rumble, and now Twitter.

Nolte: Far-Left Late Night TV’s Ad Revenue Collapses 41 Percent

The ad revenue for America’s far-left late-night TV shows has collapsed 41 percent in just five years.

Although the sycophants at the left-wing Variety devote 4500-plus words to the collapse of late night’s ad revenue, only once — and after 20 paragraphs — does Variety dare to suggest it might have a little something to do with the divisive, nasty, smug, humorless, and mean-spirited left turn late night took about five years ago:
