Tuesday Tweets

Lots of topics I need to revisit one of these days.

Describing your own paper's work as "deeply reported" is so New York Times.

One of the reasons the impeachment is such a dilemma for the GOP is that it requires officials to take a position that will piss off either a majority of the country or a key block of the Republican base that is personally loyal not to the party but to Trump. If the first group really does exceed 70% and the second stays above some threshold (let's call it 15%), the situation can become almost impossible to navigate.

As always, the question here is just how much of this Netflix Original does Netflix actually own.

We knew it was bad, but perhaps not this bad.

Leon G. "Lee" Cooperman (born April 25, 1943) is an American billionaire investor and hedge fund manager. He is the chairman and CEO of Omega Advisors, a New York-based investment advisory firm managing over $3.3 billion in assets under management, the majority consisting of his personal wealth.

In September 2016 the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission charged Cooperman and Omega Advisors with insider trading, more specifically for "trading stocks, bonds and call options of Atlas Pipeline Partners in July 2010 on information he obtained from an executive at the company." Cooperman's firm agreed to a $4.9 million settlement with the SEC in May 2017 but admitted no wrong-doing.

Cooperman through his Omega Charitable Partnership, along with Anthony Melchiorre owns American Media, Inc. (AMI), publishers of the National Enquirer, since August 2014

Remember earlier in the post when we were talking about supporters being personally loyal to Trump?

One of the more encouraging recent developments in journalism has been people in the industry finally starting to listen to Sullivan.

SF remains the go to example, despite not being even vaguely analogous to the cities in question.

The sad part is that Steyer might not end up being the most clueless and self-indulgent billionaire to run for president this year.
