Fyre Fest Scammers Jerry Media & FuckJerry Sued for Stealing a Meme. Is Their Time Up?
Noam Galai/GettyFuckJerry's long con might finally be catching up to them.

The controversial meme account, created by Elliot Tebele in 2011, culls the internet and curates memes for its over 14 million Instagram followers. This ethically murky content curation has only gotten more questionable as Tebele has expanded his empire, founding the marketing and social media agency Jerry Media and the tequila brand JAJA. These endeavors are seemingly sustained by a good deal of pilfered content. As Vice reported in February, "Today, Jerry Media employs dozens of people and charges tens of thousands of dollars to post memes for brands on @fuckjerry and other accounts." FuckJerry has long been accused of turning a profit off of content that they did not pay for or properly credit.

Now, a content creator named Olorunfemi Coker is suing FuckJerry, Jerry Media, Elliot Tebele, and JAJA spirits, alleging that they jacked his content in an attempt to sell their tequila.

But given the chance to speak with Kellyanne Conway on Thursday morning, she somewhat surprisingly spent nearly 12 minutes grilling her about the bizarre feud that has developed between her husband George Conway and her boss, President Trump.

"Your boss calling your husband a ‘whack job,' what's going on?" Bartiromo asked.

Acting Attorney General and Secretary of Homeland Security Submit Joint Report on Impact of Foreign Interference on Election and Political/Campaign Infrastructure in 2018 Elections
Acting Attorney General Matthew G. Whitaker and Secretary of Homeland Security Kirstjen M. Nielsen submitted a joint report to President Donald J. Trump on February 4, 2019 evaluating the impact of any foreign interference on election infrastructure or the infrastructure of political organizations, including campaigns and candidates in the 2018-midterm elections.

The classified report was prepared pursuant to section 1(b) of Executive Order 13848, Imposing Certain Sanctions in the Event of Foreign Influence in a United States Election, which the President issued on September 12, 2018. 

Throughout the 2018 midterm election cycle, the Departments of Justice and Homeland Security worked closely with federal, state, local, and private sector partners, including all 50 states and more than 1400 local jurisdictions, to support efforts to secure election infrastructure and limit risk posed by foreign interference.  Efforts to safeguard the 2020 elections are already underway. 

Although the specific conclusions within the joint report must remain classified, the Departments have concluded there is no evidence to date that any identified activities of a foreign government or foreign agent had a material impact on the integrity or security of election infrastructure or political/campaign infrastructure used in the 2018 midterm elections for the United States Congress. This finding was informed by a report prepared by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) pursuant to the same Executive Order and is consistent with what was indicated by the U.S. government after the 2018 elections.   

While the report remains classified, its findings will help drive future efforts to protect election and political/campaign infrastructure from foreign interference.
