Apparently George Soros does not want major tech companies to work with the U.S. government. The ACLU and nine other Soros funded groups joined with a coalition of 85 nonprofit groups to demand that major tech companies limit what they sell to the U.S. government.
On Friday, Media Research Center President Brent Bozell released the following joint letter to Amazon President Jeff Bezos calling on him to remove anti-Christian products that are available on the Amazon marketplace despite being a clear violation of company policies.
Billions of dollars are being spent on both sides to influence the outcome of the 2018 midterm elections — much of it from major media figures.
The day before the election, the Los Angeles Times (LAT) profiled the 12 biggest spenders trying to “determine control of Congress” based on trackable political donations to candidates, committees and outside groups. Giving to nonprofits or 501(c)4s were not included in the analysis.
Comedian Bill Maher donated $1 million to Senate Democrats to try to help them retake a majority as a result of the midterm elections this November.
In an article denouncing President Trump's weekend attacks on Amazon founder Jeff Bezos and his properties, the Washington Post claimed it was not lobbying for Amazon.
WASHINGTON — Milton Friedman was not only a brilliant economist — a Nobel laureate, in fact — he was also a gifted writer. In his 1962 book "Capitalism and Freedom," he presciently explained how health care costs were going to leap out of control over the next decades. Sure enough, they did. They multiplied from roughly $1 of every $20 being spent on health care in the 1950s to roughly $1 of every $5 being spent on health care today.
Jeff Bezos’ media properties, The Washington Post and Express newspapers, are acting more than ever like press agents for the Amazon CEO. Both publications recently heralded the “unspoken requirement” for Amazon’s headquarters hunt — LGBT rights. And now that Bezos own newspapers have published the story, consider the word officially out that Amazon is trying to find a second headquarters location that prioritizes the same pro-gay agenda Bezos has financial supported.
Looking at the grief Starbucks has received for problems with two patrons at a Philadelphia store, one might ask why current Executive Chairman and former CEO Howard Schultz didn't buy some media protection by purchasing a major newspaper. Fellow Seattle-area resident and Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos did that with the Washington Post in 2013. Amazon's alleged engagement in 21st-century sweatshop practices and union-busting has gone virtually unnoticed in the establishment press since Bezos bought the Post.
As the accusations against producer Harvey Weinstein grow with every day, it’s telling to see who remains silent. When the allegations of rape surfaced in the New Yorker on October 10, Weinstein croney Hillary Clinton finally spoke out. Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos has yet to release statements condemning his long-time ‘pal.’
Alex Griswold at The Washington Free Beacon relayed that The Huffington Post -- a bit notorious on the Left for not paying writers for content -- published a piece from a Washington Post reporter criticizing Post owner Jeffrey Bezos for underpaying workers. "Jeff Bezos Wants to Give More Money to Charity. He Should Pay His Workers First," wrote Fredrick Kunkle, who is also a co-chair of the Washington-Baltimore News Guild's bargaining unit at the Post.
Washington Post owner Jeff Bezos came under fire for bias, Tuesday, but for his other company. At an Amazon shareholder meeting, he was pressed on that organization’s political stances. Bezos defended, “It’s very important that Amazon, in my opinion, not oppose or favor any presidential candidate or elected official, that’s not our job. Instead, The right thing for us is to take a very measured issue-by-issue approach.”
Please, Jeff Bezos! Please don't let me be exposed to ideas contrary to SJW dogma. If you don't create a safe space for me on the Internet Movie Database, IMDb, this precious snowflake will melt away.
Well, apparently that type of person will no longer have to worry. Amazon has announced today, February 3, that the IMDb message boards, as close to a web tradition and institution as you can get, will be shut down. Apparently people are unable to simply ignore trolling or posts which with they disagree according to the shutdown rationale. Here is the announcement that Mr. Bezos has folded to a small percentage of whiners by shutting down what many consider to be the most interesting message board on the Web.
