The Real Reason
Published by marco on
The article America’s largest milk producer files for bankruptcy (CNN) spends a few useless paragraphs discussing America’s growing predilection for “milk alternatives” before finishing with the following paragraph:
“That’s not the only problem Dean Foods has faced. Walmart (WMT), which was one of Dean Food’s biggest customers, dropped them last year after building its own dairy plant.”
So, oat-milk sales being up is the lede and the world’s largest company having dropped Dean as a vendor is just an incidental footnote? The one time I open a link to a CNN article, I’m rewarded with my expectations being met.
My expectations of CNN:
- Include an auto-starting, non-muted video that follows you around the screen
- Push agenda that a given trend is driven by the lifestyle choices of its mid-to-upper-class readers/viewers
- Bitch about my ad-blocker
Check, check and check.
