Comments on: Did Vibe miss the online vibe? http://blogs.reuters.com/mediafile/2009/07/02/did-vibe-miss-the-online-vibe/ Where media and technology meet Wed, 16 Nov 2016 08:48:25 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: James Bivins http://blogs.reuters.com/mediafile/2009/07/02/did-vibe-miss-the-online-vibe/#comment-361163 Sat, 11 Jul 2009 04:01:40 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/mediafile/?p=17739#comment-361163 Mediatakeout matches with Ebony like oil mixes with water. The audacity for a garbage company that for the most part breathes to highlight the worst pieces of (mostly untrue) news in black america to approach a legacy family owned business like ebony magazine who did so much to build up the community…its crazy. Vibe and Ebony are blue chip legends who just need the right people to help them monetize their names. MediaTakeOut regardless of their traffic is 100% garbage. They will never command blue chip advertisers. It’s not about quickness to report like too many bloggers attach themselves to the thought of — its also about journalistic integrity and existing for a reason. Get a grip MTO and stick in the dirt where you belong. Know your place. I love you for your place but its not in the leagues with Ebony/Vibe/etc. John Johnson would roll over in his grave if his publication took that route.

They may have a lot of gossip but so do Enquirer and the like, just because this is a black online magazine doesn’t mean anything. They are on top of the news just like anyone else, and as a matter of fact sometimes they get it out quicker than the other sites like TMZ. Stop Hatin

Who would want to be associated with that trash (Mediatakeout)? If they accepted the money, they would have to expose that gossip site to thousands of people so that gossip can spread out even further.I’m glad that Vibe didn’t sellout.
