Robert Reich wrote an article published today, “Reich: Schultz’s presidential run is a reckless one” (https://www.heraldextra.com/news/opinion/national-editorials/reich-schultz-s-presidential-run-is-a-reckless-one/article_0f18b40d-57ab-50ee-b2ee-95ca2e0131e1.html; obtained on 2-20-2019) that began the following way:
“America is the only place in the world where any citizen over the age of 35 can run for president. No experience in government necessary. No support from a political party necessary. You don’t even have to have any ideas or policy proposals.
Take Howard Schultz, the former CEO of Starbucks whose most notable achievement to date has been the Mocha Frappuccino.
Last week, CNN made Schultz a Serious Presidential Candidate by giving him an hour-long town hall in which he fielded questions from an audience. Why did CNN do this? Because Schultz is worth more than $3.6 billion.
In today’s America, someone with this much money can buy so much advertising and self-promotion that he automatically becomes an SPC just by virtue of wanting the job and having the capacity to self-finance a campaign.”
Ironically, CNN and other major media are giving Schultz free media now because he can afford an almost infinite amount of paid media later.”
Last week, CNN did choose to give Howard Schultz “an hour-long town hall”. Why did this happen? Has Howard Schultz officially declared that he will run for president of the US in 2020?
