A faithful reader sent me a link to another story about last week’s layoffs at Mickey’s World. You can argue about the underlying economics and the impact of ESPN’s perceived grasp of liberal politics all you want, but what’s more interesting to me is that the axe fell on the journalism side of the operation, rather than the personality side… which tells me all I need to know about where the WWL intends to go to keep the non-cord cutters tuning in.
From my selfish standpoint, it’s even more reason not to watch. I probably need to investigate cord-cutting myself. Who’s taken that step, and how are you still able to watch college (that is, Georgia) football in the fall? Let me know in the comments.
