I've said it before, but I also go the impression that TGWTG/CA was never run like a real company. It was more like "Hey, guys! Let's put on a show!", like kids doing plays in their backyard.

I don't think Michaud was ever sort of intentional abusive monster. I think he's clueless & has no idea how to properly run a company or deal with employees. He's like a guy who got put in charge of a company with zero experience in the actual field he's working in. They should have sought out people with experience and even degrees in business, management, etc.

When CTC broke out, my first impression of everything that had come out was "So CA was basically just children put in charge of children".

I have no experience myself in running/maintaining a business, but its clear as day that it was not run like one should be.

Maybe they're actually friends and them being there for him is how he owes something to them? You know being generally decent people unlike stick-hag here.
This. People here tend to grant Brad “sacred cow” status and try to come up with elaborate justifications for his continued association with Channel Awesome. When CtC first erupted, many here kept speculating that Brad was stuck in some ironclad contract even though multiple sources (and not all of them antagonistic towards Michaud and the Walkers) confirmed that the only CA people under contract were the core Chicago crew. Given that it’s been two and a half years since CtC, it’s pretty clear that Brad just likes working with the Walkers and thinks that CtC depicted them unfairly.

That makes it pretty ironic that Doug, Michael and Rob ended up in an entrepreneur magazine in the early days of the website, considering how bad they were at it.

Eh, back then, making content on the Web, especially reviewing, was still pretty new. The fact they looked pretty professional and hosted more than their content was probably mind blowing to them.

I agree but, why did Michaud become CEO of Channel Awesome in the first place?

What qualifications did Mike have for Doug and Rob to be like "here you go, all the rights, the company, its all in your hands"? Only thing I can think of is that they are friends before, they trusted Mike, who only knew how to sit on his ass and play Xbox, talk big, act responsible and high & mighty, until there was a problem.

Then he would go berserk and start yelling at everyone, because its their fault that they interrupted his XBox session, and made him get his ass off. And he only used Skype as a way of communication, you could wait for him a wille before he would answer, but you better answer him asap when he's calling you.

So basically his way of handling things was exploiting someone's insecurities and pulling stuff out of his ass, because he himself was insecure and wanted smooth sail, so he could just play games and have 0 worries. In other words, if a producer screw up, he would usually go hard on him/her, not from a problem-solving perspective, but from the fact that he interrupted his Call of Duty game to do some actual work.

And when everything went to shit, he would still made answer to CTC document, where he accused everyone, because "he cant do everything by himself", and everybody who worked for him was guilty of something. Throwing Jewario under the bus was a bonus, because he knew it would be a big deal and overshadow his incompetence as a CEO.

Also, he knew that potential producers wanted to come to the site, and had no problem firing Channel Awesome ones (except Doug), because there were 1000+ others patiently waiting. The reason he didn't care about producers leaving after CTC, was because he didn't pay them, had less worries and more time to play video games.

So yeah, I give Lupa an argument that she was working for the irresponsible manchild bully. But she could have said "no tnx" at any time and quit the company, but she didn't, until she was fired. Masochistical stupid bitch. "Because my boyfriend and friends were on that site", STFU!

Amazing Atheist made same argument before that in his video, saying that Mike was indeed a first rate asshole. Also having a habit to talk behind someone's back and telling your employees to not like certain person or company is must have for any CEO wannabe with high self-esteem and confidence.

Lupa aged so quick because being angry, snarling and knashing your teeth all day takes a physical toll as well as a mental one. It is not healthy to stew in anger for years on end. Wrinkles form, hair goes grey and crows feet grow darker. She is a vindictive cunt so she would never drop the grudge but she could have used some therapy to cope with it and learn not to obsess over it. Plus I bet many nights of drinking and crying to Phelan over Skype didnt help.

Edit: wording

Sorry, but I trust the actual professional crew members, not the dishonest internet revenge campaign run by a group of narcissists who are themselves colossal bullies.

The way the situation looks to me is that it would be difficult for anyone to manage 60+ out of control egos. WE saw them have meltdowns on twitter about magic hammers and their robot characters, imagine how much worse they were behind the scenes.

The people that work for Channel Awesome obviously like him, and given a lot of causes they support, there's no way people like Rachel, Tamara or Ayanna would tolerate someone who was that exact portrait CtC painted. He's been running things for over a decade and they're still a successful business, and they weathered the pettiest controversy in internet history, so it looks like he's gotten better or is doing something right.

It was Mike, Rob and Bhargav a.k.a Ma-Ti that were the ones that started it. From what I understand Mike preferred to stay in the background and run things so that's why he was the CEO as both Rob and Bhargav were more on the technical behind the camera types. Can't say for sure but this is what I've managed to cobble together based on what's been said and what's been done.

Or it could be that he's mellowed over the years but I'm betting that he's not as bad as what Lupa and the rest are saying, but he's hardly a saint either.

People here tend to grant Brad “sacred cow” status and try to come up with elaborate justifications for his continued association with Channel Awesome.... it’s pretty clear that Brad just likes working with the Walkers and thinks that CtC depicted them unfairly.

Totally agree. When CtC came out you had people on Brad's videos asking why he was still keeping silent on the whole thing and that he needed to call out the Walkers for what they did and blah blah blah. He never even bothered to respond but people in the comments were saying that he didn't need to call out the Walkers because he was friends with them and why turn on your friends?

Of course he was going be destroyed by this and in a year he'd be totally finished because Channel Autism was going to be finished and he would wish that he had called them out when he could but it's too late.

It's just stupid childish bullshit when you get down to it. He stuck by his friends and is still going strong. Good for him.

Lupa and others probably went the same route as That Aussie Guy, when it was fine and dandy, they were happy to be part of Channel Awesome, but once everything went to toilet, they suddenly deconstructed every little thing, with 0 empathy and made some stuff up, so it would make them bigger victims then they really were. They are talking about "hard times on Channel Awesome" even today, with every opportunity for bitching on twitter.

Well Lupa isn't ugly and unattractive when she isn't wearing clown makeup. I would say she is 4, 5 out of 10, down from 6 when she started e-career.

But yeah, when wearing makeup combined with autistic behavior, she goes below the 0 fast.
Dude, she looks like the British waitress from the Burn's Casino Episode of Simpsons, and she always did.

Doesn't even have a nice rack or anything, she just got some buttery, saggy hangers.

So, if she come to your place and got naked, you would tell her to put your clothes back on, so she wouldn't catch a cold? Sure...
