The Atlantic Owner is a Mega-Donor to Joe Biden

After the Atlantic's already debunked news story about Trump dishonoring fallen soldiers during his France trip in 2018, Twitter went digging and found this piece of interesting information.

Jack Posobiec of One America News tweeted out that the owner of the Atlantic is Steve Jobs's widow, Laurene Powell Jobs. Interestingly, she is one of Joe Biden's campaign mega-donors.

From the Daily Mail back in 2017:

An organization led by the widow of Apple co-founder Steve Jobs announced Friday it was taking a majority stake in The Atlantic, the prestigious 160-year-old magazine.

The Emerson Collective, founded and run by Laurene Powell Jobs, agreed to a deal that includes the flagship magazine, digital properties, the events business, and consulting services.

Atlantic Media chairman David Bradley will continue to hold a minority stake and retain other properties in the group which include the online news site Quartz and National Journal Group.

According to Vox, Laurene Powell Jobs donated the legal maximum amount to Biden's campaign.

Among the tech billionaires giving the legal maximum, or close to it: Facebook co-founder Dustin Moskovitz; philanthropist Laurene Powell Jobs;

Is it a surprise that the Atlantic would try to push a major fake news story just weeks before an election where Joe Biden is the Democrat candidate?
