Ja Rule, Memes, and Migos: PE.RI U.S. NEWS FYRE FESTIVAL FRAUD Mar 07 | Fyre Festival founder and CEO Billy McFarland pleaded guilty to two counts of wire fraud, facing up to ten years in prison. Fyre Festival founder and CEO, Billy McFarland, pleaded guilty to two counts of wire fraud yesterday, and will face up to a decade in prison. McFarland admitted in a Manhattan federal court that he had defrauded investors and falsified documents as a way to provide funding for his promised luxury Fyre Festival experience. The two wire fraud charges each carry a maximum of 20 years in prison, but McFarland made a plea agreement which may allow him to face only eight to ten years, with a fine of up to $300,000. McFarland’s sentence is scheduled for June 21st. ___ McFarland and fellow festival-promoter rapper Ja Rule made Fyre Festival out to be a “luxury concert” to take place on a small island in the Bahamas. The festival was to include performances from Blink-182, Migos, and Disclosure with extravagant housing accommodations and celebrity-chef-cooked meals. However, when concertgoers started to arrive to the festival, they were met with flimsy tents and boxed lunches and told that the musical acts had been canceled. Mcfarland told the judge, Naomi Reice Buchwald, of Federal District Court in Manhattan, that he had begun organizing the festival with good intentions but had “greatly underestimated the resources” it would take to deliver the experience that was advertised. ___ Photo: Mark Lennihan | AP

The suit, filed Sunday in California, accuses festival organizers Ja Rule and Billy McFarland of fraud and seeks $100 million in damages for attendees who reportedly paid between $4,000 and $100,000 per person to attend the pricey event, ABC Newsreported Monday. The suit was filed by Daniel Jung “on behalf of himself and all festival attendees,” ABC News reported. It claims that Fyre Festival, billed as a “cultural moment” and promoted by Instagram “influencers” like Kendall Jenner and Bella Hadid, was “nothing more than a get-rich-quick scam from the very beginning,” according to a statement from Jung’s attorney, Mark Geragos.

America, Anaconda, and Anna: Fox News Blondes OF We're Clones, essentially IL IN CUTS MEANS STEEP AUTOMATIC CUTS WILL BE TRIGGERED, BE <p><a class="tumblr_blog" href="http://thecrankyconservative.tumblr.com/post/96519068190/i-am-really-sick-of-hearing-the-misogynistic">thecrankyconservative</a>:</p> <blockquote> <p>I am really sick of hearing the misogynistic drivel leftists spit about Fox News and it’s female anchors and contributors. Just today I overheard a conversation between two liberals discussing how all of the women at Fox were just ‘blonde, white, bimbos’.</p> <p>You’d think feminists would have a problem with these people being classified as sexual objects undeserving of their jobs and success simply because they are women, but interestingly enough, it’s often the feminists making the comments to begin with.</p> <p>So in response, here’s a sample list of some of the women of Fox, and why they are so extraordinary.</p> <ul><li><strong>Brenda Buttner</strong> — Harvard Honours Graduate.</li> <li><strong>Uma Pemmaraju</strong> — First Indian-American woman to appear as a regular news presenter in the USA, 7-time Emmy Winner, Big Sisters of America ‘Woman of Achievement’ Award Recipient.</li> <li><strong>Gretchen Carlson —</strong> Stanford Graduate, Chamber Music Soloist</li> <li><strong>Jamie Colby</strong> — Lawyer, was admitted to University at <strong>14.</strong></li> <li><strong>Kimberly Guilfoyle —</strong> Former Assistant District Attorney, Children’s Rights Advocate.</li> <li><strong>Susan Estrich</strong> — First Female Campaign Manager of a Presidential Campaign, Lawyer, Sexual Assault Survivor and Victim’s Advocate.</li> <li><strong>Megyn Kelly —</strong> One of Time’s 100 Most Influential People, Lawyer, Former Law Review Editor.  <em>(The woman in the photo above being mocked)</em></li> <li><strong>Anna Kooiman —</strong> Ran a fitness and care instruction to financially disadvantaged inner-city kids.</li> <li><strong>Kate Obenshain</strong> — First woman to serve as Chair of the Republican Party.</li> <li><strong>Christine Clayburg</strong> — Iraq War Veteran, Air Force Pilot.</li> <li><strong>Judith Miller</strong> — Pulitzer-Prize Winning Journalist and Author, while working at the New York Times, spent 85 days in Jail to defend a reporter’s right to protect confidential sources. Received a ‘First Amendment Award’ for this effort.</li> <li><strong>Dana Perino —</strong> Former White House Press Secretary, Global Maternal Health Advocate, PTSD advocate.</li> <li><strong>Hon. Jeanine Pirro —</strong> Judge, Attorney General Candidate, Founded the first ever Domestic Violence Unit in a Prosecutor’s office.</li> <li><strong>Michelle Malkin —</strong> Earned a full scholarship to Oxford, Economist.</li> <li><strong>Kathleen McFarland —</strong> National Defense and Nuclear Weapons Specialist.</li> <li><strong>Julie Banderas —</strong> Emmy Award winning Anchor.</li> <li><strong>Maria Bartiromo</strong> — Former Professor, Founder of The National Italian American Foundation, revolutionized Economics reporting.</li> <li><strong>Jedediah Bila</strong> — Valedictorian of the Wagner College.</li> <li><strong>Shannon Bream —</strong> Lawyer, became the first female commencement speaker at Liberty University.</li> <li><strong>Linda Chavez —</strong> Hispanic Politics Pioneer, named a ‘Living Legend’ by The Library of Congress.</li> <li><strong>Jennifer Griffin</strong> — Harvard University Graduate, Cancer Survivor and Advocate.</li> <li><strong>Lea Gabrielle</strong> — Fighter Pilot, Combat-Deployed Intelligence Operator.</li> <li><strong>Greta Van Susteren</strong> — Lawyer, one of Forbe’s 100 Most Powerful Women, Multi-Award and Honorary Degree Recipient, Professor.</li> </ul><p>Like I said, this is just a sample… But it paints a picture of phenomenal women who possess beauty, brains, and morals.</p> <p>While writing this, however, I ended up looking in to some different figures on diversity in Media that proved very interesting.</p> <p>As it turns out, in terms of overall diversity, CNN and Fox are near matched in many respects, while the overtly-liberal MSNBC lagged behind in many measures, such as proportional gender representation.</p> <p>FAIR.org also weighed in on this issue, and found that the least ethnically diverse news program was in fact The Rachel Maddow Show, where 94% of the guests were white. FAIR also found that the lowest representation for women was on CNN’s OutFront where 81% of guests were men, and the highest gender representation was on Fox’s O’Reily Factor, which FAIR reports had a 64/36 gender split, but MediaMatters said was split equally. Fox also had the highest representation of Latino persons.</p> <p><img alt="Gender by network graph" border="0" src="http://mediamatters.org/static/images/diversity_report/diversity-gender-network-500.jpg" width="500"/></p> <p><img alt="Ethnicity by network graph" border="0" src="http://mediamatters.org/static/images/diversity_report/diversity-ethnicity-network-500.jpg" width="500"/>(Charts from MediaMatters) </p> <p>Oh, and for the record, yes I think there needs to be more diversity in broadcasting.</p> <p>Do I think quality should take a backseat to meeting quotas? No. </p> <p>I am all for having folks from all life experiences and perspectives participating in media — That’s the way it should be, really. But I am more than a little bit sick of people bashing good anchors and people because they feel morally and ideologically superior because they believe in those simple aforementioned principles.</p> </blockquote>
