Our new issue is out now. Given their appalling regularity these days, media layoffs have begun to take on the character of a grim ritual that follows a now all-too-familiar pattern. With great pomp, a big industry player, media baron, or venture capitalist will announce a bold new merger or acquisition, often promising to rescue or streamline a flailing venture.
Within a few years, or sometimes a mere few months, this chirpy PR will suddenly give way to the language of hardheaded financial calculus, after which a spate of layoffs invariably follows. In this respect, the devastating closures and layoffs announced earlier this week by the Huffington Post struck quite a few familiar notes.
With the addition of HuffPost, our media network will have more users, spending significantly more time with our content than any of our peers. Needless to say, the cuts will affect an astonishing roster of skilled and experienced journalists — the circumstances surrounding them being especially cruel, even by industry standards.
Management insists the layoffs have nothing to do with the successful union drive that concluded two weeks ago. The past twelve months have been especially bad for people employed in the media, with an estimated 28, jobs disappearing between January and October of last year.
The pandemic notwithstanding, the industry has been hemorrhaging jobs and trending toward further consolidation for quite some time — US newspapers having shed roughly 50 percent of all newsroom employees since Despite the long-term decline of newspaper jobs, digital and alternative media projects have not really succeeded in making up for the losses the former experiencing a somewhat negligible uptick before the wave of pandemic layoffs.
Taken as a whole, the landscape of American media is trending toward something increasingly consolidated, centralized, and conglomerate-controlled. Alt-weeklies are practically dead. Gawker and Deadspin are gone. Digital ventures are either struggling or being kicked around like footballs by media oligarchs. Local news is a desert. The buzzards of organized wealth, meanwhile, are perpetually circling the corpses and picking away at whatever meat remains.
In a decade all media will be the New York Times and the Washington Post, all the former startups will consolidate into a single ViceFeed conglomerate that publishes a quarterly New York magazine and is owned in part by Facebook, and everything else will be Disney or Amazon. Journalists and media professionals will continue to suffer amid further cuts, but so will the audiences that depend on their reports, opinion writing, and broadcasts.
Every round of media layoffs inevitably prompts pleas across the industry for those terminated to be rehired — and, with any luck, at least some cut loose at the Huffington Post this week will soon find their feet elsewhere. What they ultimately need, however, is an industry actually capable of supporting their work; one guided by something other than the profits of a tiny few.
