Expensify employees respond to CEO’s email urging customers vote Biden

  • Expensify’s CEO, David Barrett, wrote an email to the company’s 10 million customers last week urging them to vote for Joe Biden in the US presidential election.
  • The backlash was immediate, and fell mainly on the company’s rank-and-file.
  • Expensify employees tell Business Insider they have been inundated with messages from customers, as well as from people creating accounts and pretending to be angry customers.
  • The company has lost only a handful of contracts, employees say. But two of Expensify’s competitors, Emburse and Fyle, say they have seen sales leads explode since the email went out.

Tucker Carlson Claims He Had Secret Biden Dirt That Got Stolen in the Mail (Video)

Tucker Carlson spent most of his show on Wednesday once again pushing conspiracies about Joe Biden’s son Hunter, and this time we got a new wrinkle. Tucker told a story about how his show had a source that gave them a bunch of secret new documents about the Biden family. But then those documents, Tucker claimed, were stolen in the mail when his producer in New York tried to send them to Tucker in California.

“There’s something specific going on behind the scenes right now that we did feel we should tell you about. So on Monday of this week, we received from a source a collection of confidential documents related to the Biden family. We believe those documents are authentic, they’re real and they’re damning,” Tucker said, not providing any information at all about what the documents contained.

“At the time we received them, my executive producer Justin Wells

Tucker Carlson Suggests His Hunter Biden Dirt Was Intercepted in the Mail

Fox News host Tucker Carlson, who has devoted the lion’s share of his airtime recently to allegations of corruption surrounding Hunter Biden, insisted on Wednesday night that he was in possession of more damning Biden evidence but that the “confidential documents” were intercepted at a shipping center.

After devoting his opening segment to recapping his Tuesday night interview with Tony Bobulinski, a former Hunter Biden associate who is now claiming Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden is lying about his involvement in his son’s Chinese business dealings, Carlson then delivered an extremely detailed tale about supposedly new bombshell materials.

“So on Monday this week, we received—from a source—a series of confidential documents related to the Biden camp,” Carlson said. “We believe those documents are authentic, are real, and damning.”

The Fox News star said that when the documents were received, he and his executive producer were in Los Angeles interviewing Bobulinski.

Chelsea Handler Says 50 Cent Is Voting for Biden, Not Trump on ‘The View’

Despite what you may have seen on the cover of the New York Post, Chelsea Handler wants you to know that her ex-boyfriend 50 Cent is not actually voting for Donald Trump.

Last week, the rapper appeared to endorse Trump on Instagram in reaction to a CNBC report that claimed the top tax rate in California under a Biden administration would be 62.6 percent. “I don’t care Trump doesn’t like black people 62% are you out of ya fucking mind,” he wrote, before adding later on Twitter, “Yeah, i don’t want to be 20 cent.”

Handler then responded to that tweet with, “You used to be my favorite ex-boyfriend,” kicking off a very public back and forth that eventually moved into a private offline conversation.

Now, during a Wednesday appearance on The View, Handler revealed that she direct-messaged 50 Cent earlier this week and they ended up getting

With a week until voting concludes this election season, the presidential candidates are making their final pitch to voters on the campaign trail — and on the airwaves.

Joe Biden’s campaign rolled out two, closing argument-style spots on Tuesday, amplifying themes the former vice president has promoted since he first launched his candidacy — casting the election as a decisive moment for the country’s future and emphasizing the candidate’s personal story and character.

Meanwhile, new ads from President Trump attack Biden over trade and the economy, and emphasize the “law and order” message the president began

These three charts show what TV shows Trump and Biden target most for ads

Political advertisers on both sides of the 2020 presidential race have targeted reruns of the syndicated sitcom more than any other scripted TV program, according to a CNN analysis of data collected by Kantar Media, a data and consulting firm that monitors political advertising.

The analysis looked at the broadcast programming most frequently targeted by Trump and Biden in the media markets that have run the most campaign ads during the general election. It found the candidates shared eight TV shows in common. Both campaigns loved morning talk shows, especially “CBS This Morning.” They both ranked “Family Feud” above “Jeopardy!” or “Wheel of Fortune.” And one of the only scripted shows among either candidate’s 10 biggest targets was “The Big Bang Theory.”

“The Big Bang Theory,” one of the most popular scripted shows while it was still in production from 2007 to 2019, had wide appeal across a variety of … Read More

WSJ op-ed asks if anti-Trump media would become an ‘instrument of state propaganda’ under Biden

Wall Street Journal editor at large Gerald Baker blasted the mainstream media on Tuesday with a scathing column asking if America’s free press could become an “instrument of state propaganda” if Democratic nominee Joe Biden is victorious on Election Day. 

Much of mainstream media has bent over backward to tarnish President Trump over the last four years and a recent study by the Media Research Center indicated that evening newscasts on ABC, NBC and CBS are significantly more negative about the current president than Biden. This comes on the heels of the mainstream media largely ignoring or dismissing the explosive New York Post report that purported to show emails from Hunter Biden linking his father to his Ukraine business dealings.

Hunter Biden, the Wall Street Journal and the decline of media gatekeepers

The thing about “fake news” is that it suddenly seems authentic when it’s on your side.

For all of President Trump’s attacks on the “enemy of the people”–and some criticism from the Bernie Sanders wing that derides the corporate-controlled media–nonpartisan journalists can still be useful in the role of umpire. And that’s why the president, and politicians of all stripes, try to orchestrate favorable coverage, especially on controversial issues.

This enables them to point to a news story as validation of whatever political charge they’re hurling at the moment. Such stories give their rhetoric a certain gravitas, a patina of credibility.

But–and here’s the rub–nowhere near as much as in the past. A huge swath of the country no longer trusts the elite media, which has been battered by Trumpian attacks as well as their own increasingly blatant biases and blunders. Many
