Whereas Facebook co-founder Eduardo Saverin caused a media frenzy when he expatriated in 2012, the reaction to Turner’s move has been relatively subdued. I’ve not seen much condemnation, questions about her motives, or calls for retribution against her. Perhaps that’s because Saverin is much younger than Turner, lives a more public existence, and is frequently seen in the company of young, beautiful, and wealthy women. (Jealous, anyone?)
But Turner and Saverin share one thing in common: When reporting their expatriations, the mainstream media got it all wrong.
I have already discussed here how the media missed the mark in Eduardo Saverin’s case. With Tina Turner, they made additional mistakes.
