Jezebel shuts down, lays off staff in ‘excruciating’ decision, parent company says

Article here. Excerpt:

'Jezebel, the punchy feminist blog with an outsized influence on internet culture, will suspend operations and lay off its staff effective immediately, its parent company G/O Media said Thursday as it announced broader restructuring in its portfolio of digital news outlets.

Jim Spanfeller, chief executive of G/O Media, said in a memo to staff obtained by CNN that the company had tried to sell the publication, but that after talks with two dozen potential buyers, “we could not find Jez a new home.”

“As of this week we are making the very, very difficult decision to suspend publication of Jezebel,” Spanfeller said. “Few decisions over the course of my career have been as excruciating, and I want to make clear this is in NO WAY a reflection on the Jezebel editorial team.”'

Advertisers not interested in spending money on a feminist web site so they can be associated with abortion and misandry?

Surprised, I tell you. Heck I'm shocked!

This couldn't have happened to a more deserving publication, seeing that actually promoted domestic violence.
