160-Year-Old US Company Falls to Clinton Ally
The Atlantic, a commentary magazine already known for its leftward bias, may descend into even further liberal lunacy now that deceased Apple founder Steve Jobs’ widow, Laurene Powell Jobs, has reportedly acquired a majority stake in the company via her organization, Emerson Collective.
“The leadership of The Atlantic, including Jeffrey Goldberg, the editor in chief; Bob Cohn, the president; and Hayley Romer, the publisher, will remain unchanged and will continue to run the publication’s daily operations,” The New York Times reported Friday.
But assuming her liberalism were to leak into The Atlantic, it might not necessarily please the 30 million or so readers who peruse the magazine online every month. And given the woman’s zealous liberalism, it seems almost absurd to assume she won’t try to change the way things are run at the company.
As noted by the Washington Free Beacon, Jobs is a fairly hardcore liberal who has donated millions to the Democrat Party and who, in 2015, wrote a piece praising then-Democrat primary nominee Hillary Clinton for being a “revolutionary.”
“She is one of America’s greatest modern creations,” she wrote for Time magazine. “Her decades in our public life must not blind us to the fact that she represents new realities and possibilities. Indeed, those same decades have conferred upon her what newness usually lacks: judgment, and even wisdom.”
Yet there was nothing wise about Clinton choosing to ignore Wisconsin during the presidential election. Nor was there anything smart about her aligning herself with Black Lives Matter.
