It represents the segment of the market that cries the loudest, not the market as a whole.
No, it represents the free market responding to those that cry the loudest in what they determine to be in the best interest of their business(es). Why do you hate capitalism so much? What you guys call cancel culture and falsely attribute to the Democratic Party is nothing but people protesting with their wallets and businesses responding.

This is what cancel culture from the government looks like...

yeah, and woke = broke. never cater to a micro market of crybabies at the expense of the majority. good way to go bankrupt as a company unless socialism artificially saves u
How's the Wavestorm count at your usual break? :drowning:

In your fight against socialism, make sure you avoid using any improved roads and definitely don't pay that Mella Roos!

So you are admitting that they are crybabies. That's a start. However I question whether those decisions are always beneficial, as I'm sure there are some situations where that backfires.

For example, NBA playoff viewership was way down by more than 50% in 2020 compared to 2019, in a year where people were desperate for stuff to watch. Probably because a lot of people just want to enjoy watching a game without the politics. The knife cuts both ways.

I've never attributed Cancel Culture to the democratic party.

it doesn't matter if the decisions are beneficial or not, the market is adjusting to what it thinks will be beneficial. Business decisions often blow up in business owners faces. The only point I'm making is that the cancel culture you assclowns are constantly shrieking about is more often than not businesses adjusting to customers and not entirely political. Democrats aren't cancelling things or people like Gina Carano, businesses with bottom lines like Disney are.

It's often analogous to the restaurant owner who takes an item of the menu that a lot of his customers like because it got slammed in a few yelp reviews. The market isn't deciding in that situation.

The market is absolutely deciding in that situation. It wasn't the government that forced the restaurant owner's hand, it was his reaction to the perception of a menu item in the market.

Traditionally markets decide by collectively buying or not buying something. If the market is buying something regularly, or not, that's the market deciding.

The government is irrelevant in my example.

If the owner of the entity bringing goods/services to market is deciding, that's still essentially the market deciding. That they chose to get out in front of it instead of having an entire failed cycle seems immaterial.

It's basically the marketer deciding to no longer bring something to market that was exposed to bad marketing.

No it's not. Neener neener. I see the market deciding on something as people collectively voting with their wallets.

Guess we'll have to agree to disagree on this one.

The market isn’t always right. No matter how unconditional your faith in it may be.

So then tell us how you really feel about “cancel culture”.
