MSM Death Spiral: Shrink the Whites Shrink the Audience

December 23, 2007

MSM has a white audience, and advocates succesfully
for below replacement fertility for whites by the immigration
substitution effect.  The MSM audience shrinks because
non-whites don’t watch the MSM.  So the MSM dies.

The Des Moines Register is an example.  They forbid any discussion of immigration in their debate. They like to shrink the audience because their other rival newspapers died first.  But regional papers are dying just the same, even the large ones. They have higher costs.  So by shrinking the audience, they kill off their rivals, but only as part of their own death
spiral.

David Warsh of Economic Principals has written about the Boston Globe’s decline and takeover by the NYT.

Tim Russert Speaking fee from Arianna Huffington at Huffington Post:

But, according to the Washington Speakers Bureau, which exclusively handles Russert’s speaking engagements, his standard speaking fee is $60,000 plus first class travel for two for west coast appearances, and $50,000 and first class travel for two for east coast locales — although, they say, private planes are strongly preferred.

Other Meet the Press speaking fee rates at above post.

But NBC News has layoffs.  PoliPundit quotes the following:

NEW YORK (AP) – NBC Universal plans to cut US$750 million in operating expenses by the end of 2007 by eliminating employees, cutting back on scripted shows, and slashing its news budget, according to a report Thursday in the Wall Street Journal.

The moves come as more and more viewers and advertisers gravitate toward new media, NBC Universal chairman Bob Wright told the newspaper.


NBC’s cost-saving plan involves laying off people from the company’s 11 news divisions, including on-air talent.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Politico

John F. Harris and Jim VandeHei left The Washington Post to become The Politico’s editor-in-chief and executive editor, respectively. The Politico is financed by Robert Allbritton, chairman and chief executive of Allbritton Communications, which owns television stations in Washington and elsewhere.

The newspaper has a circulation of approximately 25,000, distributed for free on Capitol Hill and elsewhere in Washington, D.C.[1] The newspaper prints three issues a week while Congress is in session, and sometimes publishes one issue a week when Congress is in recess. [4]

The Politico is a partner with several news outlets who co-report and distribute its video, print, and audio content. Partners include CBS News,[5] Allbritton Communications’s ABC stations WJLA and KTUL,[6], and radio station WTOP.[7]

Politico journalists covering political campaigns plan to carry a video camera with them to every assignment,[6] and journalists are encouraged to promote their work elsewhere.[7] Though The Politico seeks to break the traditional journalism mold, it expects to initially make much of its money from Washington D.C.-focused newspaper advertising.[8]

Michael Moore carried around a video camera and became rich and famous.  This is the route for those opposing the MSM.   We can actually become real journalists.  We can cover events, ask questions, call sources and publish it.  They don’t have a monopoly over video.  We can do the visuals as well.

CBS News layoffs

They want us to lose our jobs from H-1B.  They call us bigots and racists when we say stop H-1B.  When Virgil Goode says stop Muslim immigration.  They broadcast Begala saying Goode and we are bigots.   Peter Jennings said that on ABC on 9-11, in effect.

The person who wouldn’t stop Atta because it was racist was programmed by CBS All in the Family and CBS News and ABC and so on to let Atta through.  That is what immigration is. We let them through and then we go extinct.

==Wright Island Model Sustained Immigration is genetic replacement immigration.

http://oldatlanticlighthouse.wordpress.com/2007/06/30/population-genetics-island-model-one-way-migration/

“We investigated various cases of the island model with stochastic migration. If the population is infinite, the immigrants have a fixed gene frequency and the alleles are neutral, the gene frequency on the island converges to that of the immigrants.”

Genetics. 1979 January; 91(1): 163–176.

As pointed out in a previous post:

The theorem doesn’t say you get a mixture of old and new. The theorem says you get complete replacement of the old by the new. The old goes extinct. This is pure genetic replacement. It doesn’t matter if there is an intermediate mixture or not. Over time, the initial stock is replaced completely. Promises of a mixture are false.

The same equations have the same solutions is a popular phrase in physics and math.  Maybe Feynman said it, but maybe that is the Robert K. Merton Matthew Effect.

The same applies in journalism. Shrink the audience, shrink themselves.  They lose their jobs by making us lose ours or our wages go down.  We watch Lou Dobbs because Lou Dobbs wants us to keep our jobs and fights for our jobs.  The MSM fight for the CEO bosses to get rich by taking away our jobs.  The MSM are simply Henry Kravis Dolls.

Tim Russert is the ultimate Henry Kravis Doll.  He will speak for 50,000 dollars and a trip on the corporate job.  He tells corporate audiences that their jobs will be replaced by H-1B’s and if they speak up they are racist.
