More Bad News for Faux News…The Postal Service Joins the Investigation

The hits just keep on coming. Now the Postal Service is investigating Faux News for being “Funny with the money” Postal Fraud includes a number of things, including money laundering, false statements about finances, and transmission of fraudulent documents. This is serious stuff, typically Felony level.

Federal investigation into Fox News involves “financial crimes experts”

The federal investigation into Fox News is widening with two agencies now looking into the network’s practices.

A person familiar with the investigation has confirmed to CBS News that investigators from the U.S. Postal Inspection Service are involved in the Justice Department probe into Fox News. That investigation is reportedly looking into money matters at the network, reports CBS News correspondent Jericka Duncan.

While the existence of the Justice Department investigation came to light two months ago, the Postal Inspection Service’s involvement is new.

Meanwhile, the network has been lashed by a series of conduct-related lawsuits.

Eleven current and former employees filed a class action suit last month, claiming executives fostered a “culture of severe racial harassment” and ignored their complaints going back years.

Fox News denied those claims, promising to “vigorously defend these cases.”

Look Out USPS! Not Only Delivering Your Amazon Packages, But Mowing Your Lawn!

Only in a non-capitalist country does the state owned mail system solve it’s own problems by not asking for more taxpayer money.

Why Finland’s Mail Carriers Are Mowing People’s Lawns

Posti, the country’s mail service, will start offering the service next month in an effort to raise money.

These days, the snail-mail business is, gently put, not very lucrative. In a world of email and text messaging, and an enormous array of mobile-communication apps, national mail providers have had to get creative to make money as mail volume shrinks and commercial delivery companies beat them to the front door.

For Finland, one new strategy involves delivering something other than mail. Starting next month, Posti, the country’s postal service, will start mowing their customers’ lawns.

“We believe many customers will be happy to outsource lawn mowing when we make it convenient for them to do so,” said Anu Punola, the director at Posti, in a statement announcing the pilot program last week.

Postal workers will mow Finns’ lawns on Tuesdays “due to the lower volume of advertisements and publications distributed on that day” between mid-May and August this year. Customers can order the service online and must provide their own lawnmower. Thirty-minute lawn-mowing sessions cost 65 euros, or about $74, per month, and 60-minute sessions are 130 euros, or about $147, per month. The icing on the cake: It’s tax-deductible.
