Another media outlet is getting ready to vie for fans of sentimental stories in the industry’s massive holiday-programming wars.

Fox Nation, the streaming-video hub that is part of Fox News Media, will launch its first holiday movie, “Christmas in the Rockies,” later this week, part of a new holiday salvo that is expected to include two other projects, “Christmas on the Range” and “Christmas on the Coast.” “Rockies” will be available on Fox Nation starting Thursday, November 26 and will be exclusive until November 2021. “Fox & Friends” hosts Steve Doocy and Ainsley Earhardt will make cameos.

Giving money to streamers can be weird. It makes sense when a streamer is a scrappy up-and-comer for whom even a few coins in the cup can make a difference, but we live in an era in which big streamers are millionaires with exclusive contracts and brand deals. While popular streamers have expressed awareness of this power differential in the past, Imane “Pokimane” Anys is doing something about it.

Earlier this week, Anys announced on Twitter that she’s set a donation maximum of $5 on her stream, recommending that fans who want to spend more should instead “support growing channels, charities, and treat yourselves.” While many fans who donate to streamers tend to keep their spending within reasonable limits, some kick in hundreds or even thousands of dollars to be acknowledged by their favorite streamers or even create (typically one-sided) relationships with them.

iPhone 12 Sends Stock Higher

Apple has survived the iPhone 12 announcement week, and the stock continued its month-long recovery.

Shares of the Cupertino company kicked off the week with a loud bang: up nearly +6.5% on Monday alone. Over the following days, the stock lost steam progressively, just not enough to reverse what ended up being a good week for investors.

The FAAMG ex-Apple group also performed strongly, substantially better than the S&P 500. The graph below summarizes this week’s price action.

Bang and fizzle

The week was dominated by Apple’s iPhone 12 event, which the Apple Maven covered live, in real time. Here is how the week played out:

Grace Yoo, a candidate for the Council District 10 seat, last week launched MarkRidleyThomas.com, which criticizes Yoo’s rival in the race, L.A. County Supervisor Mark Ridley-Thomas. The site includes news coverage of the supervisor, including a Times story about a probe involving his son and donations to USC. The site also attacks the supervisor for not ruling out a potential run for mayor in 2022.
