Just a few examples of the disconnect:
The Super Mario Bros. Movie (Universal Pictures):
- Metacritic: 46/100.
+15th biggest box office ever: $1.35B global.
-There’s so much newsmedia hate, Wikipedia aggregated some of it into a 10,000 word standalone page: “Criticism of Tesla, Inc.”
+Tesla US sales are booming, almost double BMW in 2023. Industry leader in brand loyalty.
Abercrombie & Fitch Co.:
-Fashion editor criticism was followed by last year’s Netflix harsh docu on A&F’s “Rise & Fall.”
+A&F stock is up 200% in 5 years. Revenue up in '23, to nearly $4B.
Why the disconnect?
Sinking trust in the corporate news media is just part of the story.
