Business Briefs: Social media meeting, Warner Media, drones and golfPosted: Updated:
Attorney General Jeff Sessions has scheduled a meeting on Sept. 25 to discuss the issue on whether social media platforms are intentionally stifling certain views. No specific companies were named, but the announcement comes the same day as Facebook and Twitter officials appeared on Capitol Hill.
Warner Media says it has introduced a new company-wide policy to better promote diversity in its entertainment content. The company is pledging to work with directors and producers so its projects better reflect diversity and inclusion on both sides of the camera. According to Cheddar, a yearly report will be released to track progress. The company's properties include Warner Brothers movie studio, HBO and TBS broadcasting.
The company Flytrex has partnered with a drone company to easily deliver food and drink in the middle of golf play. According to Cheddar, players order through an app and then a human-operated drone drops off the order along the course. The service was recently tested at a golf course in North Dakota.
