I’m James Faraci The Last Of The Americans and the views that I’m about to express are that of my own and some of yours. Originally, I had planned a “Reality Checkout” about “Jersey Shore” but that is gonna have to wait until May. Right now I need to express my thoughts on the recent events that has shaken the Internet Reviewer Universe to the core. (Cut to current Channel Awesome Logo intro before cutting to clips of The Nostalgia Critic as James does a voiceover.)
As of recent, Channel Awesome has begun to crash and BURN! They had a Tenth anniversary special planned that got cancelled. All of their production contributors have ran off and the site has seen less and less people come on to their site and their YouTube Channel has seen subscribers leave. (Cut to James physically)
And to be honest, they’ve got no one to blame but themselves. Let me give you guys some backstory. A while back some of the former Channel Awesome Contributors and producers and former administrator Holly Brown decided to come together in a Twitter conversation about how Channel Awesome is in fact the worst place to contribute to. I’m talking stories about harassment, abuse, jokes that were considered in such bad taste Adam Sandler would’ve booed at them and fraudulent uses of their funds from crowdfunding. If you want to know more here is a link to a near eighty page document explaining everything: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1WZFkR__B3Mk9EYQglvislMUx9HWvWhOaBP820UBa4dA/preview
And how is Channel Awesome handling this? Are they being responsible by apologizing, making amends to their former contributors and producers? Has there been any shaking up of the higher-ups so that someone responsible to force them to do what is right?
