One would feel sorrier for them if one didn’t so strongly suspect that they are all progressives, happy to railroad someone else out of a job for PC reasons. One wonder whether their replacements from India will be willing to conform to the Correct opinions. Time will tell.
Note: All MSM are declining as news sources, though there will still be many jobs in manufacturing “fake but accurate” news for government, which might suit some of those laid off from the narrative fiction industry quite well.
