Jerry Bowyer: Amazon Joins Other Big Tech in Limiting Dissent

Alex Berenson, a former reporter for the New York Times, garnered a following for straying from the prevailing wisdom of the press regarding coronavirus. His criticism of the shutdowns sparked an inordinate backlash from elite media.

And then he was censored by Amazon.

After he self-published a booklet critical of the lockdowns through Amazon, they took it upon themselves to prevent the public from reading it. As if to add insult to injury, they delivered Berenson a notice implying that his book would be accepted if he removed the references to COVID-19. In a book about COVID-19.

It was only after Elon Musk criticized their censorship that Amazon allowed the book’s publication. Then it hit number one on the Kindle store.

If Amazon continues to limit dissent, the result won’t be conformity with the established order: it will be more consumer revolts against imposed ideology.

Jerry Bowyer: Time for CEOs to Put Shareholders First

In a recent interview with the Financial Times, legendary investor Warren Buffet criticized businesses for imposing their own political framework on the rest of society. At first glance, this may come as a surprise: Buffet is himself a politically active liberal. But even he can see that “woke capitalism” has gone too far.

As an investor, he’s been consistent in supporting businesses that put shareholders first. The shareholders, after all, are the owners.

Carbon neutrality, LGBTQ activism, sustainability and other forms of virtue signaling are just corporate perks—the private jets of a business class that craves social validation … validation not for being rich, but for being woke.

Such indulgences might win them points in their social set and with elite media, but not with their owners.

If they want to do it, they should at least do it on their own dime.

Hugh Hewitt: Elite Media and the Mueller Report

So: Robert Mueller has delivered his long-anticipated report to Attorney General William Barr.

Here’s the short of it: There was no collusion and there was no obstruction of justice. And there’s no fair way to interpret this other than as a big win for President Trump.

The investigation was bigger and broader than virtually all observers knew: 19 lawyers; 40 FBI agents; 2,800 subpoenas; 500 search warrants; 13 requests to foreign governments for evidence and interviews with some 500 witnesses.

For the last two years, it was a legitimate story-the prospect of collusion and charges of obstructing justice.

Those are serious stories. I didn’t believe it then. But now, it is not even a legitimate story.

It’s a perilous time for elite media: So many outlets and so many individuals have been repeating this for so long. They are now going to have to come to grips with a very new reality.

It’s going to be difficult for many of them.
