Not available on web anymore -- Manwin Isnt Buying RedTube By MikeSouth July 31st, 2013 Today Xbiz broke a story that Manwin is buying Redtube, a very large tubesite. But the story isn’t entirely correct, allow me to explain. Sent From an insider last Saturday: “You may get a whiff of a story about Manwin purchasing a large tube site, if you do, sit on it. They will give it to XBiz or maybe AVN, when it does break I will give you a scoop about it.” Then later today: “I see you resisted the urge to run with that. I’m sure that wasn’t easy so here is what I promised you. Manwin isn’t really purchasing Redtube, it is a merger. Look for the President of Redtube to have a very high profile role in the new organization. You are spot on in your deduction that Manwin is trying to control a runaway financial situation. Manwin doesn’t have the available capital to buy Redtube.” Now THAT makes sense to me. Manwin has sent out an internal memo that production is no longer a priority, tubesites and advertising ARE now the top priority. This backs up Manwins moves to try to thwart DMCA take down requests and it explains the many layoffs. And finally another email: “I see you coaxed Fabian out of his little hole, nice work South, you can be sure he didn’t come out just to point out how wrong you are, you are on to something, keep it up brother!” #web_empires #mergers #acquisitions #adult_industry #porn #pub
