Why would an ethical firm buy this? They are probably going to make big changes to it.

It's one of those things where if it's right there in the name, you start to wonder if they're protesting too much. Like Truth Social...

Definitely a front. There has been some consolidation in porn sites and MindGeek owner has been all sorts of attacks. They even burned his house down. It was some organized crime stuff. This ECP is on the sketch list for sure. Sounds like Ethos Capital that tried to buy .ORG TLD as a private equity firm.

Investigations should start on ECP right away.

No mainstream US politicians fit the definition of socialist very well.

Even Bernie Sanders is just barely left of center in global terms, with the Democratic party slightly right of center. The USA's overton window is skewed very far to the right.

Because they likely feel they will be able to get a nice return on their investment before they implode Pornhub.

In fairness, the quotation does say Ethical 😂

I think it says both. But I’m not going to bother to check, let’s just all go with a common assumption.

No, it is ethical:

> Ethical Capital Partners (ECP), ... ECP's website describes itself as a firm that seeks "investment and advisory opportunities in industries that require principled ethical leadership."
