Salon was recently kicked out of their expensive New York City office space and are now being sued by the landlord.
Here’s another sign that we are winning. The awful Marxist blog Salon can’t even pay their rent.
They were recently evicted from their New York City office space and now the landlord is suing them over a contract dispute.
Salon, the struggling digital publisher, is having trouble paying its rent.
A landlord who late last year evicted Salon from its New York offices for nonpayment of $90,000 in back rent is now trying to force the digital publisher to pay more than $700,000 for the unused portion of a five-year lease that is slated to run through September 2019.
Salon had been paying over $300,000 a year to Vbgo Penn Plaza for offices at 31 Penn Plaza, near Madison Square Garden.
By the fall of 2016, according to a suit filed recently in Manhattan state court, Salon had already fallen behind in its rent covering the period from July 2016 to Sept. 30, to the tune of $90,565. Vbgo said it evicted Salon in December and now is trying to get the struggling Web media company to pay up for the rest of the lease.
What’s significant about this is that Salon was considered to be a trailblazer in the space of progressive Internet media when it was founded back in the mid-1990s. Now, even leftists look at Salon as a joke. The site is a shell of its former self.
Last year, Politico did a whole article documenting a slew of internal problems within the organization. It’s safe to assume that the culture is even more toxic now than it was in 2016. Especially if they can’t pay their bills on time!
Sites like Salon are running off of business models that are completely unsustainable. It takes millions of dollars for them to keep the lights on. Unless they have some wealthy Jews who want to keep pumping infinite shekels into them, we could see Salon go way of the dodo bird.
They’re certainly heading in the wrong direction based on their Alexa ranking. This is not a good sign for a site that has many millions of dollars backing it.
The advantage we have in the Alt-Right is that we can sustain our operations with minimal resources. Many of us including the Daily Stormer have been blacklisted by all sorts of payment processors yet we keep finding ways to keep the lights on. We get maximum bang for our buck where as our political enemies have to pour a ridiculous amount of money into doing things that we can do for a small fraction of the cost.
The Daily Stormer has been able to reduce operational expenses by maintaining its international headquarters in Lagos, Nigeria. Traffic isn’t the greatest but it is still an excellent place to conduct business.
Over the next few years, we are going to see a massive shift in the landscape of Internet media. Lots of big name sites will be forced to shut down. Salon could be one of them. The sites best positioned to thrive will be the ones who have a readership most willing to support them.
