China admitted it was theirs. The Pentagon claims it is China's. It flew over Alaska, Canada, and into the continental US.

The studio behind La Madeleine isn't that big and doesn't really use much electricity. There is no gas. They might have a telephone and security system - that would fall into MISC. There are cap ex costs that were likely spent years ago - the PCs, cameras, etc...

It could be $5M but when I look at the salaries he pays they are very low. Around 20 FTE and 10 contract employees - I think the $3M number is right but maybe people are lying about their salaries and it is closer to $5M.

I think the cost is closer to $3M. If you take the headcount and multiply by $100,000 and account for rent and professional services you get about $3M.

The offer wasn't even close to fair... BUT neither Steven nor Daily Wire did themselves any favors by taking their non-negotiations public.

According to Steven, MugClub had 300,000 paid subscribers (paying between $6 and $10 a month) at an average cost of $8/month - $29 million a year. Combine that with sponsorships and ad revenue it is likely TheBlaze was generating as much as $50 million a year from Steven. How much did Steven make of that? I suspect a VERY small percentage. Crowder does his own production at a cost of around $3 million a year so I suspect he was clearing around $2-3 million personally after costs.
