Since 2011, New Media Rockstars, or NMR, has been covering the latest developments on YouTube and other online video. Despite producing consistently interesting content, lack of funding is forcing the site to close its doors:

It is with heavy hearts that we must announce the ceasing of operations at NewMediaRockstars.

Why? Plain and simple, our investor stopped funding the site. Such is the sad and unpredictable life of a startup sometimes, even when it’s achieved far beyond all expectations. Also, the “Oxycontin Friday” lunch parties at NMR probably didn’t help too much. We kid, we kid!

We know conservatives aren’t supposed to enjoy pop culture, but — what can we say — we liked NMR. From one social media site to the other, we hope NMR’s writers and editors find success in their future endeavors.
