I called this, right down to the letter. Louise Mensch has been sidelined at Heat Street and she’s no longer leading the site. She is still on the payroll, probably because she has dirt on Rupert Murdoch.
Louise Mensch is no longer leading News Corp.’s libertarian-leaning website Heat Street. The company and Mensch made the change in mid-December.
“I’ve been very lucky; requested in August that I move on to create the other two new media properties I had in mind for [NewsCorp.] when I started. At first they said play yourself into the wicket a bit, but when we hit 8 million [in traffic], they said yes,” Mensch said.
“Louise and [Heat Street publisher and managing editor] Noah Kotch have done a fantastic job launching Heat Street (the site went from zero to 8 million readers by November), and in the wake of that success, Louise continued contributing articles to the site and is now incubating several further digital projects for News Corp. (which she’s been seeking to do since late summer),” News Corp. Chief Communications Officer Jim Kennedy said in a statement. “In that regard, she is working closely with Chief Strategy Officer Anoushka Healy at our headquarters in New York. She has, throughout, been News Corp VP of Creative and Strategy and Noah has been publisher and managing editor of Heat Street at Dow Jones.”
But a News Corp. source suggested another reason for the change: Mensch’s activity on Twitter and elsewhere had become a distraction for the otherwise successful website. Mensch has been incredibly active on Twitter, often attacking President-Elect Donald Trump, and talking about various theories regarding intelligence leaks and Russia. She also popped up in John Podesta’s hacked emails where she suggested an idea for an ad for Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign.
Like I said, called it…
Even with TrendsMap, the company in question, blowing her phony shit out of the water in one of the most famous publications in American history, Mendacious Mensch insists on continuing to push this blatant lie. In fact, it’s pinned to the top of her Twitter profile as we speak. How long until Rupert Murdoch and his clan realize that she’s actually an albatross around the neck of Heat Street and decide to cut her loose?
I’d be very careful if I was her. Her psychosis might end up costing her that cushy Heat Street editorship one day.
Well, I guess this means she had nothing to do with the hit piece that minority hire Ian Miles Cheong wrote on me, so at least there’s that. Still, I’d warned her several times that her unhinged allegations about Trump were going to soon cost her the Heat Street editorship. I even said it wouldn’t last until the end of 2016, if I recall correctly. I can’t find the quote/tweet, so you’ll have to take my word on that. But either way, even without that quote, my prediction came through.
Ah well, she’ll still be making lots of shekels from the Murdoch clan…so I don’t think there’s any need to take up a collection for her. I do wonder how this will change the tone over at Cuck Street, or if it even will. Only time will tell.
