The subscriber count is getting closer and closer to falling below one million as you can see in these. ^

Also, latest NC review is averaging at 400,000 views. Quite a drop from the norm.

Marzgurl weighs in on the recent JewWario news with this incredibly emotional video.

This was really hard to listen to.  God, this is so messed up.  But I'm glad that someone has spoken up about it.

Count Jackula also adds his own two cents-

I wonder if this means we'll be seeing some reaction, or apology of some sort.  I know he's not really the guy who's at fault, but he certainly hasn't been helping any of the problems that unfolded over the years.

Good, that means I can at least watch AVGN with a clear conscience. 

I'd wait to see whatever response he puts out; Doug and Rob are far from blameless. CEO Mike Michaud may have been the cause of most employee stress, but Doug is complicit in everything, right down to being the reason why Mike is CEO and why he owns the Nostalgia Critic character. Doug's incompetence, passiveness, and at times outright wrongful decisions (such as voting to fire Holly) made it so there was no respite for any contributer on the site.

Edit: Wait a minute... this post I wrote doesn't make any sense. I completely misread AVGN as Nostalgia Critic in a fit of what I can only assume is total blindness, possibly brought on by imminent heart failure. But... I guess if you PRETEND that I was responding to something relevant, my point still stands? Umm... apologies to Harkofthewaa. Glad I caught this sooner than later.

I'm holding off on thinking too hard about the idea of Doug leaving until we get official confirmation.  They haven't exactly handled anything intelligently so far, so why start now, you know?  And I agree with Legendary Emerald.  Even if Doug was leaving, it wouldn't absolve him of his own responsibility in this whole affair.

As far as I'm concerned, this only changes the name of the operation, and maybe some of the prominent figures.  When Doug and Rob are as much part of the business as Mike is, and they've made their own share of horrible decisions as well, they'd have to do something pretty extraordinary for me to even care rather the Nostalgia Critic is affiliated with CA or any other media circle.  Seriously, it's puzzling me, because I'm not sure where they're actually going with this.  It's like they think the issues people had are with the conceptual existence of the company rather than the actions of its management.  The fact that they're keeping us in the dark and acting like it's supposed to be a surprise makes it even more... odd.  Perhaps I'm jumping the gun a bit here, but when it's being presented like this, it makes me think they're treating this like just another performance.  Like they'll reveal their strategy and be greeted with thunderous applause.  Suffice it to say, now really isn't the time for that, you know?

I think this might just be a behind-the-scenes type deal where they're hoping to salvage something by splitting from the name all this bad news is coming from to hopefully make the more casual market think this is a completely different thing. And if that is the case, I hope it doesn't work.

Even now, I think Doug Walker and the NC crew might be able to salvage their reputation by completely cutting ties with Channel Awesome and releasing an extremely thorough and sincere apology taking responsibility for everything that they did wrong and also not trying to excuse anyone else who contributed to the problems, including a 1000% repudiation of Mike Michaud. I doubt that will happen, though. Instead, I think what @DarkRula is suggesting is more likely.
