More on WeWork: SoftBank's plan would be to install @marceloclaure as chairman. I also wouldn't be surprised if they asked him to become CEO if current co-CEOs resign.
3/ Alt offer from JPMorgan, Starwood, etc. did NOT include a dedicated payoff for Neumann.
2/ Board planned to change Neumann voting rights from 10/1 to 3/1, but never finished the paperwork
Scoop: SoftBank offers Adam Neumann $200 million to leave WeWork board, vote for its deal. (well, technically to buy his voting shares)
This obviously contradicts the CNBC and Bloomberg reports. Trying to get clarity.
Note: WeWork not commenting at all on news about SoftBank.

Wasn't expecting two Robert Bork mentions, in two completely different contexts.
Yet another debate segment on big tech platforms that didn't mention Ello.
Will you demand an edit button? Well, WILL YOU?
This is entirely possible.
Everyone talking about applying antitrust law to big tech, but no one talking about changing antitrust laws so they actually apply to big tech.
Warren asked if Yang is wrong on big tech. She does not reply with a defense of Bing.
Andrew Yang just lost Washington State primary.
Earlier today, @axios healthcare editor @sam_baker asked for the candidates to address hospital costs -- which are larger than pharma or insurance costs. Hasn't been mentioned once.
Buttigieg is taking on *almost* everyone tonight. Not taking on Biden -- because he wants to become Biden (i.e., the liberal/centrist alternative to Warren/Sanders).
I will vote for the first candidate who casually slips Ron Vara into an answer.
Having troops in a region needn't equal "endless war." We have troops in Germany, Japan, etc. Also remarkable no one on stage noticed Warren endorse full military withdrawal from the Middle East.
Yes, it feels like piling on. But... This debate is essential for Warren, if she becomes the nominee, in terms of on-stage experience taking incoming.
Booker said raising minimum wage increase to $15 would put more money in pockets than would $1k per month UBI. Guess that depends. If you make $10 per hour now, increase to $15 only is extra $800. If only $7.25 now, then yes, Booker's math works.

Had this conversation today with a supporter of @AndrewYang. Seems that if you aren't Biden/Warren/Sanders, the only way to get debate airtime is to go after someone.
Don't really see a problem if $GS sold WeWork shares in tenders along the way. First, the share sale would have been via investment group, not I-banking group. Lots of "VC" firms take $$ off table in tender. Second, it wouldn't have priced the shares... co does that.
WeWork's chief communications officer quits
