THE BUZZ!

The Latest Player in the Streaming Wars Is … Walmart?

Walmart TV. It could be a thing.

Walmart is trying to get into the streaming service to offer its subscription customers more value.
Per the New York Times, , Walmart has been holding court with executives from each of the streamers’ parent companies such as Paramount, Disney, and Comcast to find the right fit.
Walmart has been trying to get into the entertainment business for a while now. They bought Vudu back in 2010 before selling it to Fandango in 2018. Now they are back to a previous plan of having their own streaming service.

They look to possible follow the Amazon model and offer users the ability to subscribe to other streaming services through their own instead of competing with other streaming services.
But whatever they decide it looks like they are planning to get Walmart Plus up and running.

Former President Donald Trump invokes Fifth Amendment rights and declines to answer questions from NY attorney general

Former President Trump was in a scheduled deposition. Part of a more than three-year civil investigation into whether the Trump Organization misled lenders, insurers and tax authorities by providing them misleading financial statements.
Trump did not participate much and declined to answer any questions from the New York Attorney general.
He said in a statement, “Under the advice of my counsel and for all of the above reasons, I declined to answer the questions under the rights and privileges afforded to every citizen under the United States Constitution.
Add all this to his already crazy legal week. Including a the FBI executing a search warrant at his primary residence in Florida, in connection with an investigation into the handling of classified documents.
