From a News & Observer story on how UNC-Chapel Hill is privatizing its profit making bookstore, a nugget on how HB2 will corrupt nearly everything in North Carolina sooner or later:
Ives said the final deal with Barnes & Noble was significantly better than the company’s initial bid.
According to an email obtained by The News & Observer, UNC also had discussed the option of using Amazon as a virtual textbook provider. Ives wrote in the email that Amazon broke off the talks because of House Bill 2, the new law that limits legal protections for LGBT individuals.
Ives said he could not comment on that Thursday but did confirm that Amazon was a bidder in the process.
