New York City bodegas boycotting Rupert Murdoch’s tabloid after attacks on Ilhan Omar: report

Published

on

Right-wing billionaire Rupert Murdoch’s New York tabloid is being boycotted for its Islamaphobic attacks on Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), The Guardian reported Saturday.

“A group of New York corner-store owners has announced a boycott on the sale of the New York Post, arguing that the Rupert Murdoch-owned newspaper’s attacks on the congresswoman Ilhan Omar are making Muslim Americans less safe,” The Guardian explained.

The boycott is being led by the Yemeni American Merchants Association.

“The association represents Yemeni Americans who own and run an estimated 4,000 to 5,000 of New York City’s thousands of delis and corner stores, which are known as ‘bodegas’. Such stores are integral to the daily life of most New Yorkers, a crucial source of late-night snacks, morning coffee and newspapers and magazines,” The Guardian noted.

Murdoch also owns Fox News, which has also seen an advertiser boycott in response to the network’s far-right programming.

Published

on

Prosecutors are updating the charges against Russians who blasted social media propaganda at American voters in the 2016 election.

John Demers, assistant attorney general of the Justice Department's national security division, and Jessie Liu, U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia, intend to issue a superseding indictment against those foreign individuals who interfered in the election won by President Donald Trump.
