The knock on Blue Apron has always been about margin, or lack thereof. Not the food quality/selection.
This is such a bizarre reason for the stock to rise so much. https://twitter.com/Reuters/status/1151210270179692544
Think the reference here is to a note today on Lee Fixel -- the guy who led deals from Facebook to Spotify for Tiger Global -- who told friends this morning that his new firm will be called Addition. https://twitter.com/vcstarterkit/status/1151152969263407104
Thank you, @danprimack. You’ve made my day. (“You've said on the record that you're "not a vampire."

Dunno why folks have such a widespread belief that journos all have defined 'quotas' in terms of what we write, how much we write, how much traffic it must get, etc. Likely true for some, but I've worked at 2 big media orgs, a trade pub & a startup. Wasn't true at any of em.

Tucker Carlson never tells his viewers that Thiel is on the board of Facebook or that he has a stake in Palantir.
Thiel falling back on: I'm just asking questions. That's not good enough.
Carlson intro of Peter Thiel who most viewers are unlikely to know: "The most impressive and far-seeing man in tech."
Peter Thiel didn't get top booking on Tucker Carlson show. Nor even second booking (that went to Antifa).

Trump claims in presser today that @AOC kept Amazon out of New York. This is simply untrue. She was one of many against it, and hardly the most important -- particularly given that it wasn't even her district. Amazon could have moved forward w/ HQ2 in Queens. It chose not to.
