Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Dailycaller.com: “Mike Bloomberg Is Paying The Same Meme Maker Who Promoted Fyre Festival”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg is paying one of the meme makers who promoted the infamous Fyre Music festival to pump up his campaign ahead of the 2020 election.

Bloomberg’s campaign is working with Mick Purzycki, the lead strategist of the Meme 2020 project, a company behind a slate of successful social media influencers. Purzycki is also an executive of Jerry Media, a major media firm that played a crucial role in promoting Fyre.

“Mike Bloomberg 2020 has teamed up with social creators to collaborate with the campaign, including the meme world,” Sabrina Singh, a spokeswoman for the Bloomberg campaign, said in a statement Thursday to The New York Times.

She added: “While a meme strategy may be new to presidential politics, we’re betting it will be an effective component to reach people where they are and compete with President Trump’s powerful digital operation.”

Jerry Media was partially responsible for promoting what turned out to be a fraudulent music festival in 2017 created by Fyre Media to hype one of its apps. The festival’s organizers struggled to provide security, food, medical services and the like for those who attended the festival.
