    Ozy Media continued its chaotic downward spiral on Thursday after several former employees said the company never saved any jobs and actually slashed salaries despite receiving $5.7 million in COVID relief loans specified for payroll. Ozy, which is under scrutiny for a pattern of fraud and deceptive business practices, had received $3.75 million in April 2020 and then another $2 million in February as a part of the Small Business Administration's Paycheck Protection Program (SBA's PPP).  Former employees told CNBC that Ozy and co-founders Carlos Watson and Samir Rao always dodged their questions about how the money, which was marked for payroll, was being used and said they still took pay cuts throughout the pandemic.  'I must've followed up with Samir four to six times,' one former employee said regarding reinstating salaries. 'It was disheartening. You work so hard and give your life to this company, to be dismissed and disrespected.'  Another employee speaking on the condition of anonymity told the outlet: 'No one to my knowledge, and I'm talking to at least 10 people.

    Chuck Schumer, according to a Tuesday report, told Democrat donors that the fact North Carolina loser Cal Cunningham ‘couldn’t keep his zipper up’ ruined the party’s chances of winning back a majority in the Senate. A source familiar with conversations between the Senate Minority leader and party donors told Axios that Schumer used the ‘zipper’ comment on several calls. He also shared with donors that he regrets successfully recruiting Cunningham to run against incumbent North Carolina Senator Thom Tillis, who was considered one of the Republicans most in jeopardy of losing his seat. Cunningham ran a closer-than-expected race last month in North Carolina against Thom Tillis and many thought the seat could turn blue, but a cheating scandal derailed his public office ambitions.
