    FOX News had a net income of $1.25 billion in 2021 and has inched upwards since then. Probably due to the election, income grew 8% last quarter in 2023.

    So yeah, they're making money.

    What’s their overhead?

    If I read it correctly, the profit that year was about $570M.

    Thanks!

    I had an argument with a Nationals fan a few years back where he wanted the Nats to give Bryce Harper, Max Scherzer, Trey Turner, and Juan Soto to $50M per year contracts. I pointed out that would mean a total Payroll of $350M for a team that had $328M in Revenue. And they still had to pay $68M per year for the stadium plus all of the other business overhead. He replied “The Lerner’s are billionaires, they can afford it” Uhm, no, they can’t. They didn’t become billionaires by running businesses losing $100M per year…

    This guy was an engineer, too.

    I'm sure there's some context to explain this...

    @Copper Actually, I thought the real movie was really really good.

    Indeed. Very well done. I believe the guy who played Hitler (Bruno Ganz?) has passed away.

    That would make a great "Hitler finds out..." parody.

    It's not exactly a surprise that The Daily Torygraph is posting this.

    What they really need to address is why Labour is doing so well in the opinion polls. Also, this guy needs to take a trip up North. My home-town and much of the surrounding area has been ignored by the current government, who clearly only care about "middle England", a euphemism for the Tory heartland.

    The Conservatives don't deserve to be re-elected. Time and time again they've demonstrated that they're not up to the task of running the country. They fucked up Brexit, and they fucked up Covid. And now, they're going to get theirs.

    Woz net worth estimate $140 million

    There was another co-founder who died worth $10.2 billion

    Mr. Jobs would probably be will to trade circumstances now.

    I love how this thread went from extolling the virtues of smart building design to help cool a home to weighing the relative merit of camping naked in Death Valley vs camping naked in the Yukon…

    Your IQ is excellent, but you are allowing your EQ to drag it down.

    No sense in asking something that most likely will not happen vs. something that might be as high as 1 in 3.

    Do a bit of study...You watch older people when they go into serious decline...Things tend get really bad within eighteen months of physical impairment. (Walking, etc.)

    Fauda indeed. I do rather wish they hadn't been quite so detailed about the pre-mission surveillance techniques.

    As both he and Trump have figured out, it ain’t cheap to be a felonious punk.

    The pedants are revolting.

    Probably smell bad too.
