Fyre Festival Accused Of Fraud In $100 Million Lawsuit

The now infamous Fyre Festival debacle has a new twist. A California man is suing the organizers of the “luxury” festival, which was hyped up via glamorous Instagram posts by the likes of Kendall Jenner, Bella Hadid, and Hailey Baldwin. Festival goers paid thousands of dollars to attend the weekend-long “cultural moment created from a blend of music, art and food.” After Fyre imploded before the first band could take the stage, apologies were issued on behalf of the organizers, citing “the infrastructure for a festival of this magnitude needed to be built from the ground up,” as one of the reasons for what Twitter and attendees were likening to… Read More

The Opposition’s Way Forward in Venezuela

For nearly a month, protesters in Venezuela have clashed with the military. Thousands march daily in the streets against the government and are met with volleys of tear gas and rubber bullets fired by police. About 30 people have been killed so far. The country has seen protests like this before, most recently in 2014. But this one is different. In less than a month, President Nicolás Maduro openly and repeatedly violated the constitution after he tried to rewrite an oil law, and his disregard for even pretending to maintain the appearance of a democracy has unified the typically squabbling opposition. Now, as David Smilde, a senior fellow at the… Read More
