Huffington Post lays off 39 employees amid cutbacks, plans new editorial version.
  Florida Family Association will continue to urge companies to stop advertising as long as Huffingtonpost.com publishes fake news, Islamist propaganda.

Huffington Post published an article titled “HuffPost Lays Off Dozens Amid Corporate Cutbacks” on June 14, 2017.  The article states in part: 

Writers Guild of America, East, HuffPost’s union, said Wednesday that they were notified of 39 members being laid off.

The HuffPost layoffs come as Lydia Polgreen, who took over as editor-in-chief earlier this year, is assembling a newsroom leadership team, which includes former Daily News Editor-in-Chief Jim Rich, and charting a new editorial vision. She recently oversaw a rebranding of the site, which was co-founded by Arianna Huffington, who left the company in August.

Is it possible the Huffington Post?

•    laid off the 39 employees because their revenues dropped after Florida Family Association influenced 420 out of 439 companies to stop advertising.

•    decided to “chart a new editorial vision” after Florida Family Association’s contact with advertisers influenced a drop from 61 companies advertising during the month of September 2016 to 19 companies in May 2017.

It is highly unlikely that Huffington Post’s parent company, Verizon, would cut HuffPost’s workforce by twenty percent if the news site was making the profits it did when Verizon acquired AOL.  AOL purchased Huffington Post in 2011.  Verizon purchased AOL in 2015.

It is also unlikely the Huffington Post’s “new editorial vision” will change its passion to publish fake news, Islamist propaganda.  It is also unlikely that it will stop spewing the vitriol and leftist hate aimed at President Trump and conservatives.

It is important to keep the pressure on companies to stop supporting this leftist, Islamist loving, America hating website.  Florida Family Association will diligently keep the pressure on.
