    Netflix slaps down The Woke: "Netflix may not be the best place for you"

    How about that...let's see if they stick to it.

    Netflix Issues Anti-Censorship Section in Company Culture Memo Following Woke Employee Protest

    https://www.breitbart.com/entertainm...-culture-memo/

    PAUL BOIS 13 May 2022

    The streaming giant Netflix inserted an anti-censorship section into its newly-revised company culture memo that has largely been interpreted as a warning to the company’s vocally woke minority. It comes months after employees launched a woke #NetflixWalkout to protest Dave Chappelle.

    In the updated Netflix Culture memo includes a new “Artistic Expression” section that explained the streaming platform will not “censor specific artists or voices” that certain employees might consider “harmful.”

    “If you’d find it hard to support our content breadth, Netflix may not be the best place for you,” the memo bluntly told employees.

    The memo further went on to say that the company will seek to appeal to a broad range of tastes across various different spectrums.

    “Entertaining the world is an amazing opportunity and also a challenge because viewers have very different tastes and points of view,” it said. “So we offer a wide variety of TV shows and movies, some of which can be provocative. To help members make informed choices about what to watch, we offer ratings, content warnings and easy-to-use parental controls.”

    Noting that people will disagree with their content decisions, Netflix said it will approach each title with the same principles.

    “We support the artistic expression of the creators we choose to work with; we program for a diversity of audiences and tastes; and we let viewers decide what’s appropriate for them, versus having Netflix censor specific artists or voices,” the company declared.

    “As employees we support the principle that Netflix offers a diversity of stories, even if we find some titles counter to our own personal values. Depending on your role, you may need to work on titles you perceive to be harmful. If you’d find it hard to support our content breadth, Netflix may not be the best place for you,” it concluded.

    As noted by Variety, the Artistic Expression portion has been interpreted as a “response to the controversy over Dave Chappelle’s ‘The Closer’ that embroiled Netflix last fall over what critics said were his transphobic and homophobic comments in the stand-up special.”

    Woke Netflix employees protested outside corporate offices last October to protest Chappelle’s comedy special.

    Well, you could read that the opposite way, too... Meaning, they'll continue to publish kiddie porn disguised as woke enlightenment and if you don't like it, Netflix may not be the place for you. Variety seems to be interpreting it one way, but I'm not sure that's the only way to read it.

    Not sure if any employees were protesting the kiddie porn content.

    But they were protesting Dave Chappelle saying one of his specials needs to be taken down over some LGBT joke he made.

    I think this is good. Obviously some politics involved somewhere but they're not taking the easy option.

    And of course offer a cool $133 million to Prince Harry of Britain and his wife Meghan. They got these millions from Netflix, but failed to deliver any material in 2021.

    Harry and Meghan also got an estimated $33.5 million from Spotify since 2020: https://www.news.com.au/entertainmen...2233e4378dd7b7

    Here is the explanation for why:



    Former President Donald Trump's media company has begun hiring staff for its video streaming platform as it seeks to build a MAGA challenger to mainstream providers such as Netflix, Hulu and Disney+.

    In recruitment adverts posted on Wednesday, the Trump Media and Technology Group announced it was seeking a content buyer and a development manager to create programming for its TMTG+ service.

    The advert suggests TMTG+ will offer a wide range of programs - some original and some bought in - much like other existing platforms.

    'Trump Media & Technology Group's streaming video on demand service will be a “Big Tent” platform offering broad-based entertainment rooted in free speech,' it says.

    'In addition to the social media platform Truth Social, our SVOD platform TMTG+ will be the home for a wide variety of non-scripted, scripted, and original content.'

    The content development manager will work on development, casting and pilots.

    'The role will generate and develop internal concepts for original unscripted content, short form series episodes and specials,' says the ad.

    'Our ideal candidate will be able to establish priorities and multi-task efficiently within a fast-paced environment while meeting strict deadlines.'

    Little more is known about the platforms plans, such as launch date or planned titles.
