Over the past year, we have accurately reported the crumbling of the Orlando Sentinel. After it was announced that a hedge fund had become the largest shareholder of the Sentinel’s parent company, many Central Floridians welcomed the end of the Orlando Sentinel.

Sine the news broke that the Orlando Sentinel’s publisher Tribune Publishing had come under the control of Alden Global Capital, a hedge fun with a record of stripping or severely crippling Fake News outlets like the Orlando Sentinel, we have made some accurate predictions about how things would play out for some of the most well-known and increasingly pathetic journalists at the Orlando Sentinel.
Lauren Ritchie, a screeching harpy who regularly omitted facts and crucial details in her stories, was the first to take a buyout from Tribune as part of the first round of “cleansing” that will be happening at the Orlando Sentinel over the next few months. We’re told she is finally achieving her dreams of crushing the patriarchy by starting a seniors night cabaret at Parliament House, something you’d have to pay most people to endure.
Longtime far-left Sentinel opinion columnist Scott Maxwell has described the despair and depression in the newsroom recently, something we have reported on for the better part of a year. It’s like a mortuary, with cubicles full of cold and lifeless. They don’t know how to code or do anything worthwhile, a regurgitation of the latest CNN or Newsweek headlines seem to be the extent of the talent in the OS newsroom.
In a rollout that includes a website, social media accounts, buttons, posters and video message that has a decent amount of production value, the “Sentinel Guild” garnered the backing of 78% of journalists at the publication according to the Orlando Weekly. They claim that Central Florida needs legacy newspapers like the Sentinel and that without them the truth slips farther away and we will be left in a dishonest darkness.
Only a group of self-inflated and smarmy journalists think that we need them to make our decisions at the ballot box or with our pocket book. And if we want to evaluate the “truth” they provide us, it’s far from truth and more like a pamphlet from the Orlando Democratic Socialist club. We don’t need their bullshit.
They would not endorse President Trump’s re-election because of disproven Russian collusion conspiracy theories and other fantastical nonsense that mirrored the talking points of alt-left terrorist groups like Antifa. Think about how deranged that is.
These are not people you should have sympathy for. They lie on a daily basis. They bully and harass anyone who doesn’t adopt their worldview. When they are busted, they claim it is an attack on journalism or “targeted harassment” of journalists.
Even if their unionizing efforts continue, Alden Global Capital should refuse their terms and demand each journalist prove their individual worth. They should have to fight for their jobs, not be allowed to demand arbitrary raises and job security because “muh union”. Learn to code, go back to school, start your own business. Most importantly, as Alan Grayson once said of the Republicans plan for healthcare, let your careers in journalism “die quickly”.
The good people of Central Florida are hoping for the quick death of the Orlando Sentinel and to put the careers of the talent-less hacks who occupy the hallways six-feet under.
If we have one request, it’s that when Monivette Cordeiro loses her job, don’t let her raid the stock of snacks in the break room on the way out.
p.s.- no we aren’t calling for the deaths or harm to journalists at the Orlando Sentinel. We simply want their careers as journalists to come to a VERY FINAL end.
