Welcome to the Corporate Casket, a semiweekly series where bad businesses go to die. We will discuss any and everything from bad charities, terrible CEOs, and businesses that have a lot to hide.

We all know Jerry Springer as the television show where anything goes: guests attack one another and the drama is ramped up to a thousand. But this isn’t what Jerry Springer always used to be. So how did controversial and thoughtful debates turn into screaming matches? Is this what Jerry Springer wanted, and is it as bad as it looks?

Established Titles is Far More Complicated Than You Think.

So you might have heard about this thing. Established Titles has become a commonly known youtube sponsor; they’re a cute gift idea that’s supposed to allow you to become a ‘Lord’ or ‘Lady’, should you choose. Recently, they’ve taken heavy fire, and allegations of them being a complete and total scam have cast them, and their advocates, under the spotlight. Is Established Titles a legitimate company with a few skeletons in their closet? A complete and total scam? Or should we really be casting that spotlight on the ones making the allegations in the first place? Let’s look into it in two ways. First the iilluminaughtii:

The Dodo is Not What You Think

The Dodo has become the warmest, ‘cuddliest’ corner of the internet. They’re a never-ending stream of adorable, clickable, animal content. But do they really have the animals’ best interests at heart? They’ve promoted unsafe animal interactions and inappropriate pets, and they source themselves consistently. The Dodo should remain extinct: they aren’t the news site they claim to be, but a clickable brand to earn money.

Student Loans are Worse Than You Realize

The student loan crisis in the United States seems like a near-constant conversation. But, as the whole country seems to constantly have the same discussion—one thing always seems to be missed: Private Student Loans. It’s been described as the “wild west” a “lawless” industry that takes advantage of the most disenfranchised and runs scams almost as much as any MLM I’ve ever seen. From Navient, Sallie May, and even Discover, everyone seems to have a new scam. So, what’s going on with Private Loans?

Money Rich, Morally Poor: Elon Musk | Corporate Casket

Elon Musk is considered to be the wealthiest man in the world. But, what does the ultra-wealthy business mogul do with his inherent fame and fortune? Seemingly nothing good. In just a few years he has found himself in the headlines more times than even I can count, and it never seems to be for anything good.

Your Tequila Is Probably Vodka (or just methanol) | Corporate Casket

The tequila industry has a long, rich history in Mexican families. For generations, people have handed down the pastime to their kids and some have become massively successful. But, as tequila begins to grow in popularity internationally, this long-time tradition is coming into question. The agave shortage may be detrimental to the workers and the companies of the product, and the appropriation of an age-old tradition may be changing the industry for the worst.

Crisis Pregnancy Centers: A Wicked Twist on Big Brother | Corporate Casket

The first Crisis Pregnancy Center was opened in 1967 in response to the ever-growing rise of pro-choice feminism and the future of an abortion-friendly America. As time has gone on, Crisis Pregnancy Centers have become a backbone feature of the pro-life movement. Tricking people into attending by offering “medical advice”, they have become synonymous with spreading misinformation about abortion and working to dismantle it from the inside out.
