    Those addicted to "progressive" fake and vegan news are hereby put on notice: if you are still reading Salon Silliness there is something desperately wrong with you. Whatever media value Salon had in its early years has been erased by the anti-US hatemongers who "work" there. One can only hope it's the first in a flood of useless media (Buzzfeed? CNN?) - many of which rode the Internet wave - that now find themselves on the bitter shores of Bankruptcy. Having lost 96% of it's market value, one can only wonder what assets it has left to liquidate? Some SJW keyboards? :lol:

    Salon Media Group, a one-time digital darling, has fallen on hard times... “There can be no guarantee that the asset sale will be completed and, if not completed, we may have to file for bankruptcy and liquidation.”
    ...The left-leaning Web site was launched in San Francisco in 1995, staffed largely by refugees from a newspaper strike at the San Francisco Examiner. It went public in June 1999 valued at $107 million, but has lost money ever since.

    In my experience only solid firms manage to recover - my R.E development company for instance - and Salon would need to either find a new niche or a "progressive" sugar daddy unconcerned with losing money.

    Meanwhile the precipitous slide on which fake media outlets like Salon have put our media continues apace, much to our detriment:

    Most Americans say they have lost trust in the media

    Yet another case of "Get Woke, Go Broke".

    Salon's problems are all of their own making.

    In the real world people learn from their mistakes. Unfortunately much of our media does not operate in the real world. Salon only lasted this long because a few deep-pocketed "progressive" benefactors were very generous. CNN only exists because it is part of virtually all cable packages.
    Which can be said of much of our media impressed with their own "brilliance" and caught up in spreading their narrative rather than real news.

    I'll take the Ransom of Little Red Chief approach. They can pay me $100 to take the company. Every day of delay increases the price by 2X.
