N&0 Reporter Whines About Capitalism as Parent Company Endures Bankruptcy Proceedings

RALEIGH – It’s just not fair. That’s the sentiment seeping from a ‘mainstream’ newspaper reporter when moaning about capitalism.


The reporter works for the News & Observer, whose parent company, McClatchy, the second biggest local media conglomerate in the country, is going through bankruptcy proceedings.

The tweet alludes to the fact that McClatchy had overloaded itself with generous pension packages for executives and unsustainable debt loads from an acquisition 15 years ago. The executive pensions totaled about $120 million liability, and the reporter blames capitalism that this money was not spent on adding more narrative weavers and dogma editors to the cause.

The brief tweet indicates he resents the fact that the executives are the ones that get to make decisions. They get to ‘split up the money,’ as if capitalism is a mere slicing of some fixed pie by arbitrarily assigned pie-cutters. The proletariat like him are shafted after laboring to create the final product.

This is a very active news reporter/journalist with arguably the most prominent paper in the state. These are the undercurrents that shape the mindset of those that claim to be the arbiters of the presentation, framing, and significance of ‘news.’

Is it really any wonder that anarcho-communists hell-bent on tearing down the capitalist system of liberty and replacing it with a woke system of social justice and Marxism are having alarming success in pockets around the country?
