LA Times Losing Diversity After Korean Billionaire Owner Does Biggest Layoffs in History

Journalists are completely obsolete.

These people are obviously going to be replaced with AI, but no one wants to say they’re doing that. You can’t prove it’s being done, so there is no reason to say that you’re doing it.

With AI, all you have to do is enter in the basic facts about a story, and the AI writes it for you. There is no point to having journalists anymore.

All journalists are getting fired.

Except the Daily Stormer staff.

NBC News:

In a move that jolted the journalism industry Tuesday, the Los Angeles Times, one of the leading newspapers in the country, laid off more than 115 journalists, a gash that affects several journalists of color.

Nearly a quarter of its newsroom staff members were given notice Tuesday that their last days with the company would be in March.

“The company has reneged on its promises to diversify its ranks since young journalists of color have been disproportionately affected,” the Los Angeles Times Guild said in a statement Tuesday. “The Black, AAPI, and Latino Caucuses have suffered devastating losses. Voluntary buyouts could have helped prevent this, but that’s not the path the company chose.”

The team behind De Los, a vertical the Times launched in 2023 to cover the city’s 49% Latino population, was gutted. Jeong Park, who was hired to cover Asian American communities in 2022, was also laid off.

Kevin Merida, who is Black, resigned this month as a prelude of what was to come. The Times’ owner, billionaire Patrick Soon-Shiong, said the paper and Merida had “mutually agreed” to part ways, but the announcement was stunning.

Managing editors Sara Yasin, who is Palestinian American, and Shani Hilton, who is Black, also recently resigned.

Editors and other workers of the L.A. Times Guild walked off the job Friday in protest of the forthcoming cuts, creating the first work stoppage in the newsroom by the union in the Times’ 143 years of existence.

Soon-Shiong said the paper was losing $30 million to $40 million a year. He said he has invested nearly $1 billion into the newspaper since he purchased it in 2018, “underscoring our dedication to preserving its legacy and securing its future.”


These parasites had essentially infinite money and one of the most recognizable news brands on the planet, and they couldn’t figure out a way to break even!

And they have the nerve to whine about getting fired too!

I’d tell these faggots to learn to code, but AI is taking those jobs too.
