Our Offer to Steven Crowder

This is an interesting soap opera between The Daily Wire and Stephen Crowder, both of which are prominent conservative streamers.  Although reportedly they were on friendly terms, Stephen Crowder took offense to an offer made by The Daily Wire to join their company and publicized their presumably confidential negotiations in an attack video.  

I don't see how The Daily Wire is at fault here.  If Crowder didn't like their offer then that should have been the end of it, or he could have tried to negotiate a better deal.

I think that even highly successful people let emotion cloud their reason, if not more so because they are highly successful.  Ego gets in the way.

A few years ago, Youtube streamers were on the fringe of media.  Now they are endorsing products in national ad campaigns.  I watch more Youtube than any other media or streaming service.
