So a few weeks ago Susan Rice is added to the Netflix board. Then, surprise, surprise Barack and Michelle cash in with Netflix too. Amazing. And remember, Obama’s “net neutrality” effort was driven in large part by Netflix (and other crony corporations) which didn’t want to pay for the bandwidth it uses. But I’m sure that has nothing to do with this payoff, er I mean, contract.
Given the cronyism we see at Netflix, Google, and Amazon I have become a big fan of Pluto TV. It’s free and it has some great stuff on it. (Of course it’s just a matter of time before they are picked up by one of the crony companies too.)
Netflix announced Monday that Barack and Michelle Obama have entered into a multi-year contract with the online-streaming powerhouse.
In a statement on Twitter, Netflix said that the couple will help produce and write films, shows and documentaries.
“President Barack Obama and Michelle Obama have entered into a multi-year agreement to produce films and series for Netflix, potentially including scripted series, unscripted series, docu-series, documentaries, and features.”
America – can’t – wait.
