    Marvin Ellison's exit as CEO of J.C. Penney means the struggling department store chain can't be turned around, CNBC's Jim Cramer said Tuesday. Loading... J.C. Penney shares plunged Tuesday after Lowe's announced it is naming Ellison president and CEO, effective July 2. J.C. Penney, which has struggled to compete within the quickly changing retail landscape, told CNBC that it was informed by Ellison a couple days ago of the move. "If there was any chance [of a turnaround], I think you would stay," Cramer said on "Squawk on the Street." "Because it would obviously be such a kick in the...

    Starbucks coffee shop managers will have trainings for combating "unconscious bias," its CEO said Monday, after police arrested two black men at a Philadelphia branch of the chain. "I'll say the circumstances surrounding the incident and the outcome at our store on Thursday were reprehensible," Starbucks CEO Kevin Johnson told ABC News on Monday. Johnson added that the incident called for "more training that we're going to do with our store managers, not only around the guidelines but training around unconscious bias." Witnesses posted a video to Twitter on Thursday of two black men escorted out of a Philadelphia Starbucks...
  • Wait–Did Twitter’s CEO Just Share A Post Calling For 'Civil War,' Wiping Out The GOP(T)

    Well, if there were any lingering doubts about Twitter’s perceived bias against conservatives, look no further than what CEO Jack Dorsey tweeted out last night. Apparently, a “good read” is a post co-written by a Center for American Progress senior fellow that calls for “civil war,” the destruction of the GOP, and the adoption of how California runs everything from sea to shining sea. Yeah, bipartisanship is dead, so mob rule is what’s needed. Now, to be fair, the “civil war” will be won at the ballot box and demographic shifts, namely through the so-called emerging Democratic majority, but the...

    Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey aroused controversy after labeling a Medium article “great” that claimed there’s no “bipartisan way forward” in the United States and that the country is engaged in a “fundamental conflict between two worldviews that must be resolved in short order.” Dorsey shared the Medium article on his personal Twitter account Thursday night, with the accompanying acclaim that it was a “great read.” Author and media consultant Peter Leyden and political commentator Ruy Teixeira argued in the article titled “The Great Lesson of California in America’s New Civil War” that America is already in the midst of a second major...

    Martin Shkreli isn’t challenging the government any longer. The ‘Pharma Bro’ fraudster convicted of misleading investors to the tune of $10.4 million—has just been sentenced to 7 years in prison. Journalists in the courtroom, reporting on Twitter, said the judge thought Shkreli was truly remorseful now, but that a minimal sentence would not serve to deter him from future fraud. Prosecutors had been seeking a 15-year prison sentence. Not long ago, he put a bounty on Hillary Clinton’s hair. Two weeks ago, he was still arrogant and challenging the government, crying ‘conspiracy’. Last week, he started begging for mercy. Today,...

    The CEO of the Democratic National Committee is leaving after less than a year on the job, NBC News has learned. Veteran Democrat operative Jess O’Connell took the helm of the DNC last May with a mandate to help newly installed Chairman Tom Perez turn around a troubled party organization that was struggling after years of neglect and a brutal 2016 that included accusations of favoritism in the primary between Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders, the hacking of internal emails, and the loss to President Donald Trump. O’Connell will leave the party stabilized, if not yet fully recovered, after wins...

    Facebook announced on Thursday that it will bring Kenneth Chenault, the CEO of American Express, on to its board. Chenault will become the first African-American board member at the social media giant. His hiring follows a contentious meeting between Facebook chief operating officer Sheryl Sandberg and the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) in October, in which Sandberg promised that the company was in the process of appointing a black individual to the board.

    An appropriate bookend to yesterday's post , which mentioned the aspiring Speaker's "crumbs" comment, an instant Pelosi classic. Throughout the tax reform debate, liberals pounded the table insisting that corporate tax cuts would not benefit workers or consumers -- just fat cat shareholders and executives. But much like they were disastrously wrong about how much tax reform would benefit working and middle income households, they've also been proven wrong on the corporate side, as literally millions of Americans workers have already received bonuses, wage increases, improved bonuses and other concrete benefits. (Incidentally, if you missed it earlier, this clip...

    The CEO of one of Britain's biggest companies and four of his family members were killed in a seaplane crash in Australia on New Year's Eve. International catering firm Compass Group (CMPGF), a Global Fortune 500 company, said Monday that CEO Richard Cousins, died when the aircraft crashed in New South Wales. "We are deeply shocked and saddened by this terrible news," Compass chairman Paul Walsh said in a statement. Four members of Cousins' family and the pilot of the plane also died in the disaster. There were no survivors. "The thoughts of everyone at Compass are with Richard's family...

    Papa Johns’ founder John Schnatter will step down as CEO following an intense backlash sparked by his criticism of NFL players protesting the National Anthem. The company’s president, Steve Ritchie, will take over as CEO. Business Insider reports: Schnatter sparked controversy in November when he slammed NFL leadership over the ongoing national anthem protests. “Leadership starts at the top, and this is an example of poor leadership,” CEO John Schnatter said in a call with investors. […] Schnatter owns roughly 25% of Papa John’s, and will stay on as chairman after stepping down as CEO in January. According to a...

    The owner of the Golden Krust restaurant chain who committed suicide inside his Bronx factory was being sued by a former staffer for thousands in lost wages, court records show. Robert Wray, a former maintenance staffer, sued Lowell Hawthorne in Manhattan federal court, saying he was never paid for the overtime he worked during his 11-year tenure. Wray’s lawsuit contends more than 100 other Gold Krust staffers were similarly stiffed for overtime they worked, the 15-page complaint filed on March 8 says. The case —which seeks class action status — is pending.

    Zain Jaffer, 29, was the CEO of Vungle, a mobile video ad company he founded in 2011. But Jaffer was removed of his CEO duties after his arrest earlier this week. The 29-year-old was initially booked with felony charges for attempted murder, a lewd act on a child, oral copulation of a person under 14, child abuse, assault with a deadly weapon and a misdemeanor charge for battery upon an officer and emergency personnel. The attempted murder charge has since been dropped due to a lack of evidence. Vungle, which has big-name investors including Google, issued the following statement about...

    Most reporters and editors are liberal — a now dated Pew Research Center poll found that liberals outnumber conservatives in the media by some 5 to 1, and that comports with my own anecdotal experience at National Public Radio. When you are liberal, and everyone else around you is as well, it is easy to fall into groupthink on what stories are important, what sources are legitimate and what the narrative of the day will be. This may seem like an unusual admission from someone who once ran NPR, but it is borne of recent experience. Spurred by a fear...

    Like many Americans, I find it distressing to see multi-millionaire athletes kneeling during the playing of our national anthem before professional football games. In my lifetime, football has been a big part of our image as Americans. In my working-class Cleveland, Ohio family, Sunday football was always a big event. One of my cousins was married to Lenny Dawson who would become a Hall of Fame quarterback. It was a rare Sunday during football season when we weren’t gathered around our TV or radio for the Cleveland Browns or the Kansas City Chiefs game (both if possible). As we watched...

    IBM CEO Ginni Rometty is in D.C. urging Congress to save DACA Two weeks after President Donald Trump moved to eliminate a program that protects some young immigrants from deportation, IBM chief executive Ginni Rometty is visiting Capitol Hill to urge lawmakers to save it. As part of a swing through Washington, D.C., this week, Rometty has met with Senate Democrats and Republicans in a bid to get them to preserve Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, from phasing out beginning in March. The initiative, implemented in 2012, had allowed children brought to the United States illegally to obtain...

    Susan Mauldin, whose identity is being scrubbed from the internet, studied music composition When Congress hauls in Equifax CEO Richard Smith to grill him, it can start by asking why he put someone with degrees in music in charge of the company’s data security. They might also ask him if anyone at the company has been involved in efforts to cover up Susan Mauldin’s lack of educational qualifications since the data breach became public. And late Friday Equifax said both Mauldin and the company’s chief information officer have retired effective immediately. Susan Mauldin’s LinkedIn page was made private and her...

    I must be much more fair and generous than liberals. Because I would never attack a CEO for what political causes he personally believes in.Liberals clearly don't feel that way. I remember a few years back when the CEO of Mozilla was forced by liberal activists to resign from his company because he gave a PERSONAL $1000 donation to a California PAC fighting gay marriage. This CEO didn't involve his company in politics in any way. He didn't use a dime of company money. The charity was not radical. In fact, it was so mainstream that the leftist voters California voted in favor of traditional marriage....
