The entire staff is getting laid off.
I used to read SI on a regular basis, both in print and online. But way back in the first Bush administration I noticed the Leftism creeping in. Reporters are notoriously Leftist, and sports reporters are the worst of the lot. There’s a reason that ESPN is so openly communist; they literally don’t know anyone else who’s to the right of Karl Marx. It’s a shock to them when someone who values individual liberty and freedom shows up, because they have no basis to recognize such a person.
So SI followed the same trend but in words instead of talking heads. I had stopped reading SI years ago because I didn’t need some J-school moron to give me his political opinions disguised as sports news. And I knew SI was done when they started putting trannies and fatties in their swimsuit edition.
That’s right, they were putting men and fat women into a magazine that should have been dedicated to beautiful women in skimpy beachwear.
So now it’s dead. Maybe someone can bring it back. Maybe not. Apparently the Baltimore Sun is being resurrected by someone who actually cares about reporting news and not being the CCP/DNC mouthpiece, so it could happen to SI as well.
