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.
