The BBC headline reads: “Spotify terminates podcast deal with couple.” Harry and Meghan are the “couple” here, two insufferable ungrateful smugs.
BBC is one of, if no other, outlets that accurately report this news. The BBC is not known as a news outlet with a high level of moral courage, especially when it comes reporting news that may be inconvenient for anything leftist. The corporate media outlets are all spinning the news in this manner:
Far-left NBC News : “Prince Harry’s and Meghan’s Spotify deal ends as they agree ‘to part ways’.”
Forbes, Far Left: “Harry and Meghan’s Spotify podcast deal ends”
Washington Post, Far-left: “Spotify and Prince Harry and Meghan terminate podcast deal after one year”
CNNLOL, Far-left: “Harry’s and Meghan’s Archewell Audio has’mutually’ agreed to part ways with Spotify”
You see, it was mutual.
Spotify spent around $25 million in 2020 on these mercenary, family-backstabbers who were smirking and sulking. One problem remained: the backstabbers did not deliver. Spotify received only 12 episodes of Archetypes, a podcast that featured Meghan talking with her celebrity friends like Serena Williams or Mariah Carey. I didn’t watch, but apparently these incredibly wealthy women complained about the “stereotypes” that have been cast on women through history.
BBC reports that when the Spotify agreement was first announced, it was touted as a partnership which would result in several series. However, only one was produced.
What did Spotify expect, then? What did Spotify expect?
The good news is…
Maybe Spotify knew how despicable the two were before they signed up.
Another fake news story:
Archetypes topped the Spotify podcast charts in August last year, won the People’s Choice Award, and ranked No. When it first debuted, Archetypes was ranked No. 1 in the world.
It’s true that a lot things buried under hype “debut” on the top. I doubt Spotify would’ve dumped it if the song had remained at the top.
Spotify is having financial problems, so they’re dropping dead weight. And there’s nothing deadlier than these two crying babies:
Spotify announced the news on Thursday, after it laid off 200 workers. Among them were audio engineers. The reductions followed an earlier staff cut of 6% (then 9,800 employees) in which the company laid off a large number of workers. Dawn Ostroff was a TV veteran and former Conde Nast Entertainment chief who played a key role in Spotify’s signing of expensive and prolific talent contracts. Spotify spent more than $1 billion during her tenure to acquire podcast assets, and signed exclusive deals with talent like Joe Rogan and Dax Shepherd.
Look who didn’t leave Spotify… Joe Rogan, and Dax Shepherd.
Harry and Meghan have a story that ends with the world assured that they are looking for a deal that will enable them to create content, even though they did not produce the content that they agreed to with Spotify.
