What has exactly Doug has done to these guys that they are so eager to shit on him?

Not really talking about the video Dan made, there are tons of videos talking about Doug's Wall review (and making the same points), but everybody who used to be his "friends", now take delight on shitting on the guy.

Can't say I'm up to all the "change the channel" drama is, but wasn't the main complain about The Walkers, mainly Doug, was that he was hands off to all the bullshit Michaud pulled, as in, he didn't help at all and kept to himself.

And while it is kinda shit to have someone you thought as a friend not having you back... the way they spoke was as if Doug never acted as if he was their friend, more like just a distant co-worker, so I don't know what they were expecting.

I just don't get this crazy hang up against Doug people have. Not here to defend the man, but the one who fucked people over on Channel Awesome was Michaud, Doug just looked the other way because, well, it wasn't his problem, and I don't think he ever made the impression to care either way.

Because they're failures and need a scapegoat to hate or else they'll have to admit the truth... they only have themselves to blame.

The best explanation I've heard was on DHI, that it's a case of Crab Bucket Socialism.

It's up, I'm too lazy to download it and archive it for folks who don't want to give him a view

But TL;DR, it's all surface-level leftist critique about the review, that, while I personally overall agree with, it's still beating a dead horse at the end of the day and a way to pretend that did no wrong when he was working at Channel Awesome
Dan arrives to feebly lick the last specks of flesh off of the bones of the Wall Review's carcass, once again reminding everyone of his position on the "CA Has-Beens" hierarchy.

And in true Dan fashion, he covers the topic super late. The Wall review was literally over a year and a half ago. Why are you suddenly covering it now? Were you too busy with other stuff?

However, one thing confuses me and it isn't Dan but Leon Thomas.

Why does he still care about Doug? He commented this to Dan's announcement and commented on Lady Emily's video about Demo Reel.

He left CA in 2016. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NJGRejEbqc8
He then participated in the not so awesome document with his section only being a page.

The only part where he talks about Doug is "Doug used my video without permission, I should've been consulted." So why does he still care Doug 5 years after he left Channel Awesome, 3 years after the document? I just find it weird how much they still care about a former boss that they need to bash him a lot or find joy in others bashing him. #ChangeTheChannel just seem like a bunch of bitter miserable cunts who can't quit thinking about Channel Awesome until it's finally in the ground and everyone in CA management is broke. Even then, it will be like when Biden won the election and the people who hated Trump were still miserable even though Trump lost and they were obsessed for years with getting him kicked out of the white house.
The short answer is Doug looked down on him and fired him. See count jakulas video.

I find it interesting that Dan was whining about Doug's comments about woke culture, and how "people are looking to be oppressed" talking points throughout the reviews

Because, while I do agree, Doug missed the point of the original movie, and I do agree that parodying it to a segment of the murdering of queers, Jewish and coons was stupid...

He was not wrong in general, and I find it kinda funny that Dan never tries to refute it :thinking:

A bit of cross-posting from Lupa's thread, But this is what the asshole wrote in the description of the wall review.



Yeah....
What a disingenious piece of shit, for implying it was people complaining about their issues with the company and it was CA who brought it up for no reason. He must have forgotten these parts in the document.

Can't forget Allison saying that they knew Jewwario was grooming fans for years even though the only evidence they have is an anoymous source who said they knew for a year not years. Just another case of the dishonesty involved in Change The Channel.

It was, at least in regards to Doug.
And while it is kinda shit to have someone you thought as a friend not having you back... the way they spoke was as if Doug never acted as if he was their friend, more like just a distant co-worker, so I don't know what they were expecting.
I think Linkara as talked a bit about that in regards to how he wasn't super willing to hang out with other producers at things like conventions, nor did he try to really understand the characters he was writing into his anniversary specials by doing things like consulting the people he was writing for or watching their stuff to create a base....and he'd go on to say he did because Linkara needs everyone to know he's a better director than Doug.
I just don't get this crazy hang up against Doug people have. Not here to defend the man, but the one who fucked people over on Channel Awesome was Michaud, Doug just looked the other way because, well, it wasn't his problem, and I don't think he ever made the impression to care either way.
Well, the idea is that they believe that as the big kahuna on the site, when Doug heard of the shit going on, she could and should have put his foot down and brought an end to it. Instead, he does things like be the deciding vote to fire Holly after she was working after a surgery.

Is he just trying to retroactively martyr himself for the stupid 8chan expose he tried? Or is this actually an accepted narrative among the lefty dregs of CTC? (Or both?) I don't believe it for a second.
This is the narrative he's been running since the 8chan incident happened. Lindsay ran this exact narrative during her segment of the CTC document.

Martyr for what? That he got caught redhanded on his bullshit? Motherfucker can't accept people will forever know him as the dishonest, child porn holder that aligned himself with an ACTUAL pedo for it. And less we forget HE KNEW ABOUT JEWWARIO and stayed quiet because he wanted to face his fucking skin. Like it is truly a piece of work how much of a snake he is.

If he is willing to backstab Lindsay then nobody should consider him an ally.

The martyr idea is "I was fired for doing journalism". And Lindsay stated that she and Kyle Kallgren (another Chez Apocalypse aligned producer), quit the site in protest.

And look where did they get them? Lindsay has been canceled from ever coming back on Twitter with Kallgreen, and Olson showing their hands by stepping on her legacy, and shit-talking her. Kallgreen is forever stuck in a bubble of irrelevancy, and Olson sooner rather than later has his days counted with how blatant 8chan op was. It's bound to stick to him in a meaningful way at some point.

They played a stupid game by trying to strong-arm CA. They got a stupid prize
