Jack's been in charge of $TWTR for a year and hasn't cracked growth problem. BOD should be asking if time to sell."Stop making me dab on Ellen and just give me a fucking chance already."
Retweeted by Edmund LeeWe like to make fun of $TRNC (for good reason) but the's up 63% YTD! Other newscos are down. WTF
Now meme starts of Silicon Valley excusing itself for fucking up, while paying itself a fortune. Reporters go along!

Loving @Stranger_Things. It's not 80s nostalgia. The texture, the if it had actually been made then and forgotten till now.

Retweeted by Edmund LeeI've become a retweeter. Mostly it's lazineA lingering Q for Fox: If women like @MegynKelly were harassed years ago, why did Ailes remain in power for so long?

I’ve heard this sort of speech a lot in the last 15 years and trust me, it doesn’t sound any better in Russian.
Retweeted by Edmund LeeWait, did he just mock his own crowd with U-S-A chant? @minakimes @davidcho we should all watch that waySo Ivanka is basically a DemocratIvanka is the most polished Trump, so un-Trump.Been covering media a long time, can't ever remember a 76-year-old executive ever being replaced by an 85-year-old executive.
Retweeted by Edmund LeeRoger Ailes created another big problem for Fox News — the average age of its audience is 68 Reddit shakes up management, with possible departures of editorial director, others

Retweeted by Edmund LeeI kissed Sumner's ass for 30 years. It should be mine. Without it I'm just another schmuck with few hundred million.
Retweeted by Edmund LeeWhen we deposed Trump in our lawsuit, he threw Meredith McIver under the bus for inflating his financials:
Retweeted by Edmund Lee @mlcalderone @gabrielsherman the professionalizing James has wanted to institute for a whileHahahahahaha be clear, even stories NOT about Fox News drew Briganti out. Never faced such a relentless comms op and I've faced off against plenty.Can't tell you how many times I was reporting story about CNN/MSNBC and got a call from Briganti or her minions. Tentacles spread widely.Any reporter who has covered Fox/Ailes has heard the words "I can't talk, you have to call media relations." Those days could be over.
Retweeted by Edmund LeeCommon for top corp comms people to leave when their boss does. And in this case she's particularly tied to Ailes and his ethos.
Retweeted by Edmund LeeI keep asking Fox hosts, reporters, producers, commentators if they've heard from Ailes, and I keep hearing the same answer: No.
Retweeted by Edmund LeeHey media reporters: Briganti could be out. by @gabrielshermanThe one where Kara goes back in time to forecast tonight's #Thieltalk

Retweeted by Edmund LeeWhat media reporters faced whenever writing about Fox News -- pain. A reminder from the late @carr2n
Conventions are managed affairs, a choreographed informercial, so Cruz trolling was amazing. Trump campaign can't manage anything #RNCinCLENames of @nytimes buyout takers: List to be finalized by Friday.

Retweeted by Edmund LeeRoger Ailes leaving the News Corp building...with his wife: of obvious successor sign of declining media landscape. There isn't one for a lot of big media cos. Murdoch brothers notwithstandingAisles still negotiating exit, but we can start the Fox News obits now. It'll still be strong but decline likely. Ailes is huddled with advisers in "full on crazy mode." He's furious that Megyn Kelly is now being credited with his ouster
Retweeted by Edmund Leetrue RN Ailes being ousted as chairman/CEO of Fox News, two sources at Fox News channel tell NPR. No official confirmation to NPR yet.
Retweeted by Edmund LeeMegyn Kelly tells company Roger Ailes sexually harassed her, which prompted decision to oust him by @gabrielsherman @edmundlee @jack @Lesdoggg Shocked Silicon Valley hasn't gone harder on this. Is no one else aside from jack employed at Twitter?
Retweeted by Edmund LeeHours after @jack reached out to @Lesdoggg about all the hate speech she was subjected to on Twitter, she quit:
This time next year mix/match media cos: $CBS / $TWX (HBO) / $VIAB (MTV) / ViceLove it when CEOs do their own media analysis, but esp @reedhastings’s a first look at Q2 Netflix #'s: It wanted to add 2.5M subscribers, only added 1.7M.
Retweeted by Edmund Lee$NFLX now expects Q3 net adds to hit 2.3m. Growth is slowing, that simple. And the Street really doesn't like. miss for $NFLX: 1.7m new subs versus expected 2.5m. Higher churn culprit after changing pricing. years of covering media biz, I've never gotten so many one-sentence statements from companies as I have in the last month. $FOXA $VIABWow.

Erdogan Facetime: go to the airport / take to the streets. From what I'm seeing online / on TV that's happening. Information is a weapon.Deeper irony around Erdogan facetiming in his statement, he's suppressed or made life difficult for independent news orgs in TurkeyUS cable news doesn't have anyone in ground so it's chatter over Turkey DHA feed. Watching @SkyNews @BBC who have their own people on groundvirtual head of state had an Oculus competitor in the works — but it nixed the project breaking by @mhbergenElisabeth Murdoch’s media company just launched a men’s lifestyle brand on Snapchat via @Recode @alexbarinka no this looks new?

Retweeted by Edmund Lee @jyarow @pkafka yes, funding vs audience still a thing, but dunno how long @jyarow @pkafka riiiiighht...kinda like how Amazon loves to openly talk about its Prime numbers to entice studios.@jyarow ding ding ding...also that's always been Apple's stance so nothing new here as @pkafka says most of the words in the interview, focus on news that Apple exec is doing interview w/Hollywood trade pub.
