    FedEx CEO challenges New York Times publisher to public debate after tax story

    "Pertinent to this outrageous distortion of the truth is the fact that unlike FedEx, the New York Times paid zero federal income tax in 2017 on earnings of $111 million, and only $30 million in 2018 — 18% of their pretax book income. Also in 2018 the New York Times cut their capital investments nearly in half to $57 million, which equates to a rounding error when compared to the $6 billion of capital that FedEx invested in the U.S. economy during that same year," he argued in the press release.

    The Times reported earlier Sunday that FedEx's financial filings revealed the company to have "owed no taxes in the 2018 fiscal year overall." According to the report, the company has saved $1.6 billion so far under the GOP tax reform plan passed in late 2017.

    “FedEx invested billions in capital items eligible for accelerated depreciation and made large contributions to our employee pension plans,” the company told the Times in response to that story. “These factors have temporarily lowered our federal income tax, which was the law’s intention to help grow G.D.P., create jobs and increase wages.”

    The New York Times did not immediately respond to a request for comment on FedEx's statement.

    Pretty soon these whiny old white dudes will be challenging each other to duels again.

    Actually, now that I think about it, this would be a great way to get rid of Upper Class Twits of the Year. Let's legalize dueling as a solution to disputes for anyone who earns $200,000+/yr.

    Legalize it? How about mandate it?

    Don't know the answer to the first one, but I can handle the betting. All profits will go to a worthy cause... ME.

    I was hoping for M. Night Shamalamadingdong, with the twist ending being that they've been the same guy with two different accounts this whole time.

    Since # 1 won't happen, you needn't worry about #2.

    EDIT: Should I be worried that Kep hasn't raised any objections yet?

    I didn't know the DeVos family was "philanthropists."

    If you're going to turn plutes into compost, target Betsy first.
