Ticketmaster is under fire for an outage that prevented millions of Taylor Swift fans from buying tickets to her upcoming tour. 

Clay Travis and Buck Sexton reacted to the issue during their nationally syndicated show Thursday. In some cases, tickets are reportedly going for $20,000 each. 

“She’s got a catalog of songs and she’s only 30 years old,” said Travis. “She might become the wealthiest musician in the history of music. She writes and controls much of her own catalog.”
Travis stated that Swift’s fans are still very young and they’re going to be watching her in concert for the next 30 years. 

“Almost half of our audience is female,” Sexton said. “What percentage of them like Taylor Swift? When I say like, I mean listen to Taylor Swift, I bet it’s high.” 

Sexton praised Swift for her “catchy” songs but said that he had never been to a Swift concert before. Sexton added that he would not let Swift’s politics, which are notoriously left-leaning, get in the way of enjoying her music. 

“I am willing to celebrate the artistry of somebody. If you’re not going to listen to somebody because of their politics, unfortunately, you’re going to miss out on 95 percent of what’s out there right now.”

Various media outlets are facing or going through layoffs as the industry deals with economic uncertainty. CNN is the most prominent to go through with its job cuts, but they’re not alone, as SiriusXM might soon be dealing with this reality.

The satellite radio company is reportedly facing layoffs as it deals with slowing auto sales, the primary source of its subscriber base from its free trial offers, and a potential recession. 

“It may indicate the need for staff reductions,” management said during a town hall meeting (h/t Inside Radio). The company had a workforce of 5,590 employees at the end of 2021. However, the exact number of potential cuts is not known. 

Inside Radio previously reported SiriusXM had produced a 4% year-over-year revenue gain to $2.28 billion in the third quarter. However, Bloomberg points out that the company’s subscriber base is the same as it was three years ago at 40 million. 

NPR recently informed its staffers of their hiring freeze as it looks to cut $10 million from its current fiscal budget due to a $20 million decrease in subscriber revenue without resorting to job layoffs to meet these financial goals.

Turning Point founder Charlie Kirk had an appearance at the University of New Mexico which reportedly sparked violent protests Wednesday.

According to KRQE-TV, police were at the event in riot gear, and things got heated as they tried to move the protesters away from the event.

Kirk joined the “Tucker Carlson Show” Thursday to discuss the incident. He questioned whether the protestors were paid and what they were doing on campus.

“It’s really interesting when you try to show up on a college campus and do an optional, voluntary event and how angry the other side gets,” Kirk said. “This is a very important moment for people to recognize and understand.”

Kirk said that the “radical left” is acting like the same violent extremists that the entire federal government is organized to go after.

“I wonder who is financing the protestors and who is behind this?” Kirk surmised. “This is the third time this semester that an event on this campus had to be canceled or ended abruptly.”

Three people were reportedly detained before being given a summons and escorted off campus.

“I went there on a personal mission,” added Kirk. “I went there to send a message to every one of these people, that we are going to stand for free speech and you are not going to be able to disrupt our events or bully our students.”

CNN announced mass layoffs this week following months of speculation amid big changes in upper management. CEO Chris Licht notified employees by an internal memo stating that paid contributors and an untold number of employees would be impacted. 

WMAL Radio host Vince Coglianese reacted to the changes Thursday. Coglianese suggested that CNN is suffering from an identity crisis. 

“You have to have a clear mission, that’s just a basic principle of the media business,” he said. “You must have a direction and that must be clear to the audience. CNN, which decided it was going to be an entirely anti-Trump network now they appear to be rudderless.” 

On Thursday, CNN announced that it was ceasing live programming on Headline News and that morning anchor Robin Meade had been a casualty of the planned layoffs. 

“At CNN, you have all sorts of people running in different directions,” Coglianese said. “People who think it’s supposed to be a left-wing network, people that think it’s supposed to be a news network. If it’s that confused, it’s going to collapse.”
