FAKE NEWS ON STRIKE! Writers & Creaters at Far Left Vox Media Go on Strike

Few things are more glorious than watching the left eat themselves. This week’s edition of the circular firing squad centers on the employees at Vox.com, infamous far left hack “news” site, as they go on strike demanding…. STUFF. BECAUSE. REASONS.

Apparently the employees have unionized and are now on strike until Vox head Jim Bankoff gives them raises or something.

Crazy Uncle Bernie has voiced his support for the strike:

 

Some are calling this the most accurate news day in Vox’s history, since nothing is being published. The comments are hilarious.

HuffPo reports:

Several hundred Vox Media employees staged a walkout and stopped writing and publishing stories in an effort to pressure the company to sign their union contract.

On Thursday, Vox Media Union shared photos of an empty New York newsroom after hundreds of employees walked out on the last scheduled day of bargaining for the union. It said it was still pushing the company ― which owns Vox.com, Eater, Polygon, The Verge, Recode and SB Nation, among others ― to agree to terms on raises, severance pay, limits on subcontracting and wage scales.

Dozens of employees and other media union members have been tweeting directly at Bankoff over the last few days, sharing stories of low wages and benefits issues. Vox.com criminal justice reporter German Lopez, for example, said he made $30,000 a year when he started in Washington, D.C., and doesn’t “want anyone at Vox Media to go through that again.”

Reporter and editor Mike Prada of SB Nation said the sports site won’t publish stories on the NBA Finals game Thursday unless they get a contract.

It “was a hard decision, but securing that contract today is more important than an NBA finals game,” he tweeted.

The company recognized Vox’s union in early 2018, but 14 months later has failed to come to a collective bargaining agreement. Vox’s union is represented by Writer’s Guild of America, East, which also represents HuffPost’s union.

Yet to be explained were some articles being published with employees’ bylines but without their permission or presence in the newsroom on Thursday.

That last line appears to be reality.

According to SimilarWeb.com, Vox.com gets about 43 Million hits a month.
