Democratic presidential front-runner, former Vice President Joe Biden gave Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’ Green New Deal a big bear hug, with the release of his 22-page climate plan June 4. The Atlantic called it a “mini green new deal” and Biden claimed it will create around 10 million jobs while reducing U.S. net-emissions to zero by 2050. Sure. Business leaders have a very different opinion about the economic impact of a Green New Deal.
Hollywood loves to make a villain out of business and they’ll be doing it again with some of the new fall TV shows for 2019. NBC’s upcoming legal drama Bluff City Law will verbally indict companies and “greedy capitalists” as evildoers who buy judges. The Fox show neXT, which Deadline described as a “fact-based thriller,” will expose the dangers of technology as they portray Silicon Valley creating artificial intelligence so smart it becomes a menace. The “dramedy” Filthy Rich, also on Fox, will promote negative stereotypes not only of wealthy people, but of Christians.
