Please Help Save the Guardian

The election of Donald Trump has lead to a crisis in accredited media. Companies from CNN to the Washington Post have all had to work hard to combat fake news and defend their reputations from hoards of alt-right saboteurs and Russian agents putting out fake news that contradicts progressive narratives. But one news organization has been particularly hard hit. The Guardian, one of the oldest and most respected names in accredited journalism, is in dire straits.

Founded in 1821, the Guardian has produced unparalleled accredited journalism for almost two centuries, reporting groundbreaking news that you just can’t find anywhere else. This year, the Guardian, along with the Accredited Times, reported that robots are racist and sexist, a topic so thought-provoking that it even generated some disagreement and debate amongst the Guardian’s own progressive readers. The Guardian also routinely offers unique and fascinating criticisms of Donald Trump and Brexit that cannot be found on any other major news site. But despite the amazing, independent journalism that they do, the Guardian is in a dire financial situation, and has been forced to ask for donations in order to continue its important work.

According to the Financial Times, the Guardian’s advertising revenues are falling fast for unknown reasons, and the newspaper’s losses have been mounting every year.

Fortunately, according to the Guardian’s womyn chief editor, Katharine Viner, the company now makes as much from donations as it does from advertising. But more is needed in order to make the company profitable again. Like the Accredited Times, the Guardian has state of the art offices with top-of-the-range mac desktop computers, and employs dozens of highly-paid writers and journalists, who analyze Reuters news feeds and press releases meticulously for new stories.

The tools and talent needed to produce such stunningly original content costs a lot of money, and the Guardian needs your support in order to keep their operation going. According to the Guardian, “We don’t have a wealthy owner pulling the strings. No shareholders, advertisers or billionaire owners can edit our editor”. The Guardian is the peoples’ magazine free from corporate influences, and without the support of you, the reader, they may be washed away in a sea of fake news and alt right corporate propaganda. So, please, donate today, and secure the future of accredited journalism.

Liberals and progressives hate money and businesses so I will not financially rape them by giving them any money

I am torn here. Guardian tows the accredited line on some issues (gay, womyn, Muslim rights, for example), but they are wrong in rejecting government surveillance and demanding for more of so-called “civil liberties”, which in reality is just a code name for Russian interference.
Edit: one of their journalists has had the nerve to criticize the infallible St. Obama:

I am not giving any of my hard-earned welfare money to these monsters!

The article states That accredited reporters
“analyze Reuters news feeds and press releases meticulously for new stories.”

My impression of MSM journalists is they get “all their news” from twitter feeds.
I can’t read an article anymore where it is not about what was said on twitter or they share images of what others said to support their narrative about the story on twitter.
So unless Reuters is a twitter user I can’t see where news comes from anywhere but twitter.

I was under the impression that it was all made up ( aka pulled out of their fat smelly behinds) and heavily sprinkled with the words “Russia”, “Putin” and “election”

This is terrible news; with content like that it beggars belief that it is not a cash-cow, if you’ll pardon the speciesism as I can’t find an equivalent non speciesist term.

I would donate a large chunk of my AT salary but I’m still awaiting the first payment. If you expect to pay a special Kwanza bonus over the festive period, it would be fitting to pay that to the Guardian?

As I recall When MDB decide to pay all the AT staff a larger salary it created a temporary cash flow problem for AT as well. Perhaps the Guardian decide to pay all their staff a fair wage as well. They will catch up because non merit based additional pay always results in increased employee productivity and greater profits.

I know in my small business after raising pay, Installing additional gender neutral restrooms, A Muslim prayer room, several safe spaces for triggered employees, Higher Insurance premiums, Lactation rooms, maternity leave and space for child care, and of course making sure it is all ADA,USDA,EPA,OSHA,EEOC,NLRB compliant
I barely have enough in my SBA loan to pay my city,county,state and federal taxes and fees. As soon as customers realize that $35 for a cup of coffee served by rude/distracted employees is fair and begin to purchase it in large volumes I should be able to break even.

This is really top-notch analysis. A big problem is the lack of a universal basic income. If everyone received $200,000 each year from the government, important companies like the Guardian would not struggle as much. Mark Zuckerberg may be hard to beat in 2020, particularly given his high score on the Oppression Pyramid.

Perhaps you should take a leaf out of the Guardian’s newspaper and set up an offshore corporate tax evading entity in the Cayman Islands, as Guardian Media Group did?, or is there a possibility of running your business as a trust or charity?

It seems immoral for vital progressive organisations to be taxed the same way as ‘for profit’ manufacturing, extractive or or producing capitalist organisations would be.

I understand that a large proportion of Guardian advertising sales are to government entities, Where else would you advertise your post for a strategic vision manager to architect your outreach and diversity directorate if not the Guardian?. What other paper would a qualified candidate possibly read?.

Thinking aloud – The good old BBC does its bit by buying the paper in bulk (140,000 pounds worth last year) – perhaps the BBC and the Guardian should merge, since editorially they are one and the same?. Then the Guardian can stop worrying about sales volume and concentrate on progessivism paid by the TV tax?.

It is not up to Americans to save the British, I believe it is the turn of the French, as they owe England for helping them out in WW1 and 2.

Viva la France!
