The popular internet streaming service, Netflix, seems to be heading for very choppy waters as it makes a series of interesting deals over the past few months.
Netflix recently signed a multi-year agreement with former President Barack Obama and his wife Michele that will see them produce films and documentaries.
The company has also decided to hire Obama’s former national security adviser Susan Rice. Both moves have Republicans balking at the idea of sticking with Netflix.
“Republican’s approval of the internet streaming giant Netflix has dropped amid the company’s recent embrace of Susan Rice and Barack Obama, according to polling data obtained by Variety.
A survey by the research firm YouGov found that Netflix’s positive impression rating with Republicans fell by 16 percent since the beginning of 2018.”
While Netflix has stated that anything produced with the Obama’s will not have a political slant, there is virtually no chance they will make good on that statement.
Both deals really make little sense as neither the Obama’s or Rice have any background in screen writing or production of movies or television.
With liberals already in full control of the MSM, it seems they must branch out if they want full media control. Netflix could end up seeing major boycotts, as other companies have faced, when they decide to alienate Republicans.
