National Geographic lays off it’s remaining staff writers

This should not come as a surprise to anyone who first heard NatGeo had been sold to Rupert Murdoch’s 21st Century Fox back in 2015, and then to WDC. For these massive corporations, it’s all about profits and shareholder value over everyone and everything else.


On Wednesday, the Washington-based magazine that has surveyed science and the natural world for 135 years reached another difficult passage when it laid off all of its last remaining staff writers.

The cutback — the latest in a series under owner Walt Disney Co. — involves some 19 editorial staffers in all, who were notified in April that these terminations were coming.
