News Corp has been using the term “lackeys” to describe the people who work at the company’s newsrooms and is raising money for them, according to two people familiar with the matter.
News Corp, which has become one of the most popular companies on Wall Street, is looking to use “lacs” to refer to the company staff.
The term was used in a 2013 New York Times story about how News Corp was selling off assets to raise cash.
The money that News Corp is using for the staff is meant to be used to pay back the money it took in from selling its newsrooms.
“It’s very clever marketing,” said one of those people.
News Corporation did not respond to a request for comment on the news of the Lackey program.
News Corp’s strategy has been to use the term lackey to describe people who are hired for the company to do the work, according a person familiar with News Corp, who asked not to be identified because the person is not authorized to speak to the media.
News Corporation hired a consultant to find the right people to work for the media company, but it hasn’t been able to hire them because they have to be cleared by the company.
A new strategy is being rolled out at News Corp and CNN to make sure the Lackeys get the best possible training.
The company is not only using the LacKey word, but the LacKEY program as well, according the person familiar.
A similar Lackey initiative was launched by CNN.
NewsCorp and CNN also are looking to sell off assets, one of these people said.
CNN has said it is exploring selling off its media assets and News Corp will sell its news properties.
News of the program is a sign that News Corporation is trying to capitalize on its growing media assets, said Paul Giamatti, a professor of media studies at New York University.
The Lackey programs have helped News Corp make money in the last year or two, he said.
“That’s really something that is very unusual, especially given the size and the scope of the company,” he said, adding that it would be “disappointing” if News Corp does not continue to use Lackeys in future programs.CNN is not the only media company to be looking to hire Lackeys, and there is talk of other media companies as well.
In the past year, several media companies have launched Lackeys programs, including NBC Universal, which will start hiring Lackeys for its news divisions, and the Discovery Channel, which is in the process of hiring Lackey interns.
The Lackey Program is not a new idea.
News of the new initiative was reported by CNN in 2014, but there is no public record of News Corp actually doing Lackeys.
The program started in 2013, when News Corp hired a firm called the Strategic Marketing Institute to find a new way to attract and retain its news staff.
That year, News Corp launched the LacKeys program, which began as a one-month trial in the Los Angeles Times, according Reuters.
News Inc hired the company as part of its effort to build out its business by selling off News Corp properties, including the Los Gatos offices of its parent company, The Wall Street Journal, The Times, the Wall Street Week and a large number of other news properties, the company said at the time.
The programs involved hiring people who have experience in the media business, but had little or no experience working at other media organizations, according in a statement to Reuters.
News was the only one that was able to recruit enough people to start the program, and NewsCorp said it has been able sell off a significant portion of the media properties it has bought.
“While we do not currently have a specific timeline for completing the program,” News Corp said at that time, “we do believe that Lackeys will help us better understand and engage with our media audience and ultimately help us grow as a news organization.”
“Lackeys are a great way to connect with your readers, and as we begin to expand the Lac Key Program, we look forward to the opportunity to grow our Lackey team and our news business.”
