As David Zaslav Goes Straight Savage Cutting and Cancelling Everything #Woke at Warner Discovery, SJWs Start Shrieking About MuhFakeJobs

David Zaslav, The Grim Reaper of Wokeness, is in a cost-cutting frenzy.

Warner Bros. Discovery, owner of CNN, HBO Max, TLC and Food Network, is mounting an aggressive cost-cutting plan ahead of its promise to find more than $3 billion in savings in 2023.

CEO David Zaslav has wasted no time since the $43 billion merger between Discovery and WarnerMedia closed in April. According to The Hollywood Reporter, senior leaders in the company's US-based advertising division were informed that buyouts will be coming, although they haven't been offered yet.

News of the cuts, which will slash approximately 30% of the firm's ad sales team, or about 1,000 jobs, was first reported by The Information on Tuesday.

He's cutting lots of underperforming projects at the DC division of Warner, in addition to Batgirl.

The bloodbath continues at Warner Bros. Discovery. Or is it Discovery Warner Bros.? We can never remember. Either way, David Zaslav is rampaging around the corridors of the studio wielding his axe and nothing, and nobody, is safe. Batgirl lies dead and the current DCEU is no more. Maybe his vision works on movement? Has anyone tried standing absolutely still to see if that means they avoid cancellation?

...

Harley Quinn, Doom Patrol, and Titans are all up next on the chopping block and cancellation is apparently imminent. They will join the never started Wonder Twins on the DCEU scrapheap.

That is not all. Another high profile show is also about to be made to walk the plank while it is still in development. Greg Berlanti's Green Lantern.

Rumors are flying that Zaslav is going to end, mostly, DC's monthly comic business, and either start publishing just the occasional graphic novel, or perhaps license out their eight or ten actually-valuable characters to some other company. The result will be a lot less work for the people who killed the American comic book industry.

And they're screaming. They think that calling Zaslav a racist will work.

Here's one of DC's more obnoxious SJWs attempting the "I'll call my boss a racist to keep him from firing me" card.

Not this time.

TEE FRANKLIN HARLEY QUINN WRITER @MizTeeFranklin

This #WarnerBrosDiscovery call is hurting my brain. This whole thing is affecting me & plenty people I know personally.

I can't wrap my mind around ANY of this. Plus, I guess I'm a male now? I just...

A lot of them freaked out over Zaslav's market-research-backed statement that HBO Max had a "male skew" and Discovery Plus had a "female skew." They all seized on this and claimed that this made them transexuals or something, because they liked the "wrong" channel.

Can you really not understand that?

Are you... are you developmentally delayed? Are you admitting that?

Because it's an extremely simple concept.

If more men than women watch something, it has a "male skew." If more women than men watch something, it has a "female skew."

It doesn't mean that only men watch the male-skewing thing.

And watching it doesn't make you a tranny.

Do you not understand this?

Or maybe they're just trying to whip up a twitter mob against Zaslav, because they know from how he's talking -- emphasizing things like "quality" and "profits" -- that they're the next to be fired.

As well as being retarded.


Replying to @MizTeeFranklin
I hope y'all reading in between those lines, "Best storytellers" to tell diverse stories.

What a concept, hiring the best storytellers. What a racist codeword!

MzTeeFranklin knows she does not qualify as the "Best Storyteller" under anyone's definition.

The fact I'm focused on this call & not in my grieving cave is telling. Whew.

This dude a whole fucking villain.

This is your boss... for the moment.

If you thought DC was practically all white before... chileeeeeee we ain't seen NOTHIN yet.

And if you didn't know that comic book villain has been quoted in articles sayin, "he would hire the best people he could find and gender and racial diversity, while a factor, would not be his top priority."

It's WHAT'S not being said y'all. Read in between those lines.

So yes, and I'll read between your lines: You're a shit writer and you know you're a diversity-hire charity case and Zaslav is basically saying the days of burning money in charity-case burn-pits are over and you're very upset about that.

Fine.

I bring all this up because CNN is also a Warner Discovery company.

And guess which other Woke Charity Case is trying to save his job?


A lot of underperforming wokies who know they're next to get pink slips are trying all sorts of strategies to avoid Zaslav's Merciless Axe.

Won't work.

Bye, Tater.
