The PR flap over Georgia’s new voting law gives us an interesting look at something we talk about a lot: the promise and peril of corporations acting as a check on the government. Or, at least, it’s an object lesson in why companies are not your friends and — news flash — some politicians are hypocrites. Also on the docket today: Is Miami really all that great?
Here’s everything we talked about today:
- “What a Pepsi can says about the GOP’s rift with corporate Atlanta” from the Atlanta Journal-Constitution
- “Georgia House threatens Delta tax break after CEO slammed new voting restrictions” from CNN
- “Corporate mind-meld on Biden plan” from Politico
- “The galling hypocrisy of corporate America” by Jennifer Rubin in the Washington Post
- Meet Abdallah “Shehta” Abdel Gawad!
- An LA Times Business editor on VCs pushing “certain cities”
