Megan Morrone Desperately Tries to Save Her Shitty Job

Please, please subscribe. I just bought a new house. Did you know I have kids?

Something curious is going on over on Twitter. Megan Morrone is begging individual people to subscribe to the “All Shows” feed.

Presumably, she’s hoping to boost downloads and income for one Leo Gordon Laporte — and Lisa Laporte of course — hopefully saving her job in the process.

Bad news Megan: Leo just booked $800 Bette Midler tickets in NYC and is flying first class to New York City for his birthday to see her. You know what that means.

A few examples from the large list

Patrick is running his own scam too, trying to make Tech News Weekly a thing.

Hilton A. Goring could not be reached for comment.

Instead of renaming Tech News Today, they made a new channel/show called Tech News Weekly. Weeks later, it has 450 subscribers.

That seems sad, but it’s even more sad that they stole the name from Andrew Zarian, and Zarian’s channel only has 270 subscribers after years in operation.

However, Patrick redirected all the robot downloaders of TNTwhich never actually watch — to auto-download episodes of the “new” show Tech News Weekly, committing yet another fraud against PodTrac and the remaining advertisers.

I wonder how that happened? Could it be that a new podcast appeared with all the subscribers of an existing, long-running one? What a legitimate accomplishment! It’s a fantastic strategy executed by TWiT CeHO Lisa Laporte.

TWiT is circling the drain and the few remaining employees are playing Survivor in real life.

  1. Just think what Twit could have been if
    1. Leo hadn’t driven away his top talent like Tom Merritt with his cheapness and toxic personality
    2. If he hadn’t in a fit delusional self/importance, poured money into a studio that looked like the set of a steampunk Nickelodeon kids show
    3. If he hadn’t hired Z-level talent like Mike Elgin
    4. If he had actually foreseen the rising popularity of podcasts and actually made an effort to produce shows that people want to listen to (Ham nation and Munchcast anyone?)
    5. If he hadn’t, in a bid to go back to his glory days, hadn’t shitted out out of date crap like the New Screen Savers
    6. If he actually TRIED to get interesting guests on his shows besides out of date bores like Andy Inhatko and Apple cum guzzlers like Rene Ritchie

      Munchcast was very funny and worth a listen. MC wins an award and is dumped without any fanfare sortly afterwards. I’ve no idea what Cammy Blackstone did to upset his lordship.

  2. Wow, being a Mommy really ruined Megan. She used to be really cute.
    Are her eyebrows actually growing over time? They look triangular.
    Her eyes look so tired. Her face had crevasses and bumps where there shouldn’t be. Was her nose always that big?
    Sorry for being so….you know….honest.

      Her mono-brow is growing back since the weed wacker broke. Her face has always been that bad and the nose always that big. Come on, lighting and camera tricks don’t always work.

      Megan Moron should try to hook up with Ham Nation. They aren’t going anywhere since they pay Lard Ass to be on Twit.

      Of all the shows I ever hated on TWIT Ham Nation is the one I hate the most. It’s like looking into Leo’s retirement. A bunch of old men with too much money playing with their toys and congratulating themselves for making it to Quartszite, AZ another year.

        Agreed. It’s really dull, plus the host – Bon Heil – is way too prissy!

      2. Yet Leo, as W6TWT, seems to never actually been on the air beyond a PR stunt or two. Les Quartzsite Boyz say ..-. ..- -.-. -.- / -.– — ..- // …. — .– / -.. — / -.– — ..- / .-.. .. -.- . / – …. .- – ..–..

      3. I actually am a ham, and I find the show even more boring than amateur radio (the hobby of old coots) is already, most of the time. And the show is one long commercial for Heil, Icom, DX Engineering, etc. You will not hear about other brands.

  3. I have a hard time picking on the hosts of TWIT too much. Yes, everyone left is pretty much C list talent at best but it’s not their fault. They literally have nowhere else to go unless they get lucky like Sarah or Iyaz. So they have to put up with the BS. That and in tech journalism the closer you get to 40 the thinner your audience becomes. So these folks are all pretty much in constant desperation mode now. Still, Megan was never much of a talent to start with even back on TechTv. When she went into the “mommy track” she got even more unwatchable.

      Yep. Megan telling us she was a mommy every 5 seconds during interviews and product reviews got old really fast.

    2. If it was my job to host a tech news podcast, I would at least make it a point to be knowledgeable about the field and the industry. She barely seems to even know what tech is. She’s in this situation due to her apathy and incompetence, so I can’t feel too sorry for her.

  4. Wow. Those tweets are pathetic. And is there a bigger kiss ass than Patrick Delahanty?

    You know things are going bad when they’re pleading with people via Twitter to subscribe. It’s not going to happen overnight, but TWiT is toast.

  5. Megan has kids???

    Holy shit, you can’t just drop a nuclear bomb of news like that! I wasn’t expecting that! Damn, that was fucking brutal, I gotta go heal my wounds.

  6. Tech News Today began as a daily spin-off of This Week In Tech.

    Now Tech News Today is Tech News Weekly, the weekly version of the daily version of This Week In Tech.

    So what’s the point? It’s not like either is getting a lot of ad revenue.

    I’m guessing it differs from the original in that it’s duller.

        I though Tech News Today was a blatant attempt by Leo to steal Buzz Out Loud from CNet by poaching Tom Merritt and Jason Howell.

        that’s how the industry works. It was great until they started messing around

  7. Are you kidding me? Leo is taking his dick sucking CEO and flying first class to NYC on a lark just to see a poorly received Broadway musical? To see Bette Middler who must be 90?

    What the fuck is wrong with this guy? He has a network to fix,, people who count on the success of the network. At least Nero could play the violin.

    And, of course, we know he’s making this trip because he was obviously bragging about it like the dickhead he is.

      Years ago when my small company was hitting hard times I didn’t take a salary and a vacation was the last thing on my mind. It took 4 plus years to turn things around. When TWiT and radio show finally crash…Leo will blame everyone but himself. I’m betting his “CeHo” will leave him at that point. Daddy will be out of sugar.

      Hopefully he can squeeze in time between sex in the hotel room and the show to take his aging mother out to dinner.

  8. Tech News Weekly has been running for almost a Full month and they have no sponsors for that show… it’s doomed!!

    Megan will be let go, iOS today will be rolled into Mac Break Weekly.
    (Which is ironic because Megan probably bitched that doing a daily show was too difficult for her – it was because of her TNT went from a morning show, to an afternoon show, after Mike quit when he was told he would have to work with her)

    Jason Howell will continue with AAA but it’s not enough to pay his bills, so hopefully he has been smart enough to secure an escape plan whereby he can take AAA and all of it’s Assets with him (ala Chad and Minecraft)…

  9. Has anyone come forward to claim that Professor Jeff Jarvis aka Buzz Machine aka I-read-Habermas aka unbiased journalism for Google made them feel nauseous and outraged when he lathered himself in the title of “public intellectual”?

    Here’s one allegation, maybe it will encourage more:
    “I’m a young person interested in tech and I just wanted to listen to TWIG to hear hard hitting tech stories about the cloud. I promised my parents that I wouldn’t listen to filth and rubbish but when PIJJ come on he wouldn’t stop talking about German privacy concerns, his own lack of privacy concerns, faux outrage over Verizon and his short on detail vision for journalism in the internet age. I hadn’t come to hear that dribble – I had come for tech – but now that I was in his podcast he kept pushing his message at me. It felt wrong. Everyone kept telling me what a genius he is. I wanted to get away but I really needed cheap shavers and mattresses. I thought, JCD is loving this wisdom, so I should too. Now I am ashamed and put this story out there to warn others.”
