Happy Memorial Day and welcome back to The Daily Courant, your afternoon guide to the latest reporting from Puck.
Today, we lead with Bill Cohan’s brilliant back-of-the-envelope M&A engineering that could resolve Bob Iger’s Hulu headache once and for all. Plus, notes on Carl Icahn’s Illumina proxy war and the provisional debt ceiling resolution.
Then, below the fold: Baratunde Thurston spots the not-so-hidden fallacies in Tim Scott’s view of America, before making a persuasive case for temporarily unplugging A.I. And on The Powers That Be, Jon Kelly and Dylan Byers discuss why the Musk-Tucker rightwing media bromance could end up on the rocks, before turning to Semafor’s latest fundraise and The Messenger’s uneven launch.
