As the 2022 statistics continue to roll in, the carnage of another woke dragon spreads across the Dow Jones floor.

According to Breitbart News, Hollywood lost more than $500 billion in market value. Left-wing studios like Netflix, Walt Disney Co., and Comcast took the majority of the hit.

Now that’s a story worth telling.
