I mean, the shoes can't be filled. Now. That's impossible. But I'm interested to see who they do put in those shoes, though, because You and I would not be doing this radio show with the success that we do if it were not for rush. I mean, it has actually so many people, absolutely over the years, you know, and you know you got to start in the Sacramento market, and that's over the years just turned into obviously. Nationwide and the biggest conservative talk radio show of all time. I mean, it's pretty amazing. So you know, he had several people that filled in for him over time. A lot of them were really, really great. So I imagine that it'll be one of them that that takes takes over. But it won't be the same Christian not even close. And I think whoever takes over will admit that I would want to take over. I can tell you that used to fill that can't be Even former President Trump called him a legend when remembering his friend recently on Fox News, and he talked about his decision to award rush the presidential Medal of Freedom during last year's state of the Union address.

In full effect. And, according to Wall Street forecaster Jim Bianco, he tells CNBC, so the great thing about the media's You make a lot of money fast. The hard thing about the media's getting out with that money, fast money. Yeah, that's great, but he makes a good point. The most of us know how and when to get out, or is that really more of a Market nerd thing that you followed Walter Little bit market nerdy. There's a lot that goes into it. So first of all, there's there's a timing aspect. Nobody's gonna know exactly when to get in when to get out. If anybody tells you Christian, they can time the market You know they're full of it, right? That's all there is to it so we can't time markets. I don't profess to build time markets. Nobody should profess the time markets. But what we can do is be smarter about investing. And so we can take a look at Numbers. We can take a look at statistics and we can say Hey, listen, the probability of something doing well at a certain time is high, or the probability of something doing poorly at a certain time is low. Right now, If we took a look at markets would say they're over Bob minus all there is to it, But once markets are over, But does that mean they're going to crash or something? Not necessarily. Right now we have to take a look at Well, what's the alternative to investing in the stock market at this point time? Well, the alternatives aren't very good. Real estates overpriced bonds aren't a good option because of the Fed and interest rates. Interest rates are really really though fixed rate options aren't very good. So you take a look at all of those components and you say, Well, where is the best place to put money right now in the short term? I believe probably in the market, and but the problem is, we've been talking about that for a long time, Kristen and fortunately, we've been right over the time. We've been talking about it, but that just means we're looking at the numbers and we're looking at the statistics, and we're looking at the probabilities of what's likely to happen. That will change Christian are forecast will change even on this radio show. As we talk to people about what we think's going to happen, But it doesn't mean we know exactly what's going to happen. The other point or the other issue that people are dealing with when it comes to timing is taxes. So there are a lot of people here in 2020 worrying about taxes. Excuse me and 2021 person. It's already 2021. I know I did wrong. The other day, done it a couple times here. We are in 2021 worried about taxes next year because some of the things that president has been talking about and people are going well Do I sell in 2021 take advantage of tax rates now. Because I believe they're going to be higher in 2022. They probably will be. That's a conversation you should be having with your financial advisor.

NASA’s Perseverance rover lands on Mars
"Good morning, Scientists from Planet Earth will land another mission on Mars today. NASA calls the rover perseverance. NPR's science correspondent Joe Palka has been following this one. Good morning, Joe. Morning, Noel, Can we talk about the logistics of this? They have to get a hurtling projectile toe land safely on Mars. How is this done? Yeah. What's the big trick? It's going 12,000 MPH, and they have two landed it two MPH. No problem. Well, what happens is they're overs packed up into something called the Aero Shell, which hits the top of the atmosphere on Mars and Atmosphere slows the craft down and it's friction heats up. That's why there's a heat shield, but that does slow it down quite a bit. But then there's a giant. Parachute that slows it down further and then finally, there's something called the Sky Crane, which is a jet pack that flies over the landing site to the landing site, then lowers the rover down on a tether and then cuts the cord and flies away. But the interesting thing is, this is the same landing system that the last rover used called curiosity. But it's been made more up to date by the fact that it's got this smart landing system so that you can actually look for Ah, good place to land. If it doesn't like the first place it picks the confide to the next one. What is modern is all the computers and navigation systems are on this new rover. The design of the rocket engines on the sky Crane is actually 50 years old. Believe it or not, those engines all trace their way back to the Viking Landers. That's Joe Cassidy, He's executive director for space at Arrow Jet Rocket die in the company that makes the rocket engine. The Viking missions landed on Mars in the mid seventies, and Cassidy says the rocket designed depended on a special valve that made it possible to vary the Rockets thrust. Funny part is back in the seventies, We had a supplier that actually developed that forest with J. P L came back to us in the latter part of the first decade of the 21st century and said, We want you to do that again. That supplier was no longer in business. But luckily they were able to find an alternate supplier who would make the valve for them. Very luckily, what is perseverance looking for on Mars? Well, it's landing in a place called Jez zero Crater, which was they think a lake bed 3.5 or Lake 3.5 billion years ago, And the idea is there might might might have been microbes in the lake. So there'll be cameras on the rover that will study the appearance of rocks looking for things like stromatolites, which are structures left behind by mats of bacteria. They're also instruments on the rover that will measure the chemical and mineral composition of the rocks at the landing site, and Nina Lanza is a geologist at Los Alamos National Lab and the scientists on one of those instruments called super Camp. See, this is the kind of thing that a geologist needs right. We need both chemistry. What's in Iraq and mineralogy how it's arranged. So knowing those things tells a lot about the conditions under which the rock form then whether or not those conditions were conducive to life. I asked this excitedly. Could we be getting news soon, saying that there was life on Mars? Well, it's one of those news stories where people get very excited, but they will also say I'm from Missouri proof show me so that's actually the idea of this. They may see things that look like there might have been life there. But they say to confirm that they have to bring the rocks back to Earth. And in fact, that's what this mission is going to do. It's going to collect samples that a future mission will return to Earth. Okay. NPR Mars correspondent Joe Palka.

Let us fly over Sydney for a few minutes here and there. So it can be super simple can be super complex. I've been trying to film Paris now for seven years, I've gotten permissions twice and both times they've been canceled for security reasons and I'm still working on it so you'd get to Paris now the helicopter. Not Today, morning of the morning I've it gets cancelled I'm well, why did you go into the into project hair and making these? To mend US pictures from from above it was an our magazine, Article on the psychology of coincidence and I remember talking photo editor and and sank. Can I read the Article? No typical floors I go very long article. Do you WanNa read it yes I do. So I read the piece the article and as I read through it I I remember reading about brain synapses and I take an cognitive science course in college where I studied throws on the cones and the is and how the brain works and communication went on to and snaps. In I pitched the idea to the magazine saying New York. City, looks like a motherboard and more fluid streets like in London etc. Look like a brain synapses and they actually didn't like the idea at all. The they turned me down and said, no, no, we don't want that. We want. You should have high noon above. Washington square shoot a guy in piano or something and I'm like, okay, I'll do it. If you let me shoot my night stuff and they literally said in after of some back and forth were actually begged off the project they said Okay Okay bill up shoot your stuff at night. We don't want to see it but give us a stuffy want noon you know of this park and that's how air was born over an initial rejection. Honestly the concept and It was the most amazing thing. I've seen in one of one of the few two or three months missing. They've ever seen in my in my life or career to go by the twelve thousand feet at night and see Manhattan in a way that few of us get to see even commercial airliners were four, five, six, seven, thousand feet about city. So we would see seven forty sevens under our feet in three eighty, it was wild, but the city and the world looked so different from up there and it was it's very special how you technically pulling these shots off them because I know you I think he moved to the you're using a particular Canon imaging system. Back, then no, it was it was just a at that time was a fun one D Mark Three s five, D Mark Three. I believe I with Gyros underneath all handhelds out of the side of the window or the door more recently it's a lot more complicated like shot over system in gambles doing longer exposures at night. What does this show Michelle Davis System on a a soldier? Yeah. So helicopter this huge on coming both from Jimmy. Kimble is it right? Yeah. Yeah. So it's just a stabilized kimball. So every if you're gonNA Magin helicopter has been described as one hundred, thousand pieces of mental trauma shake themselves from one another he's not the most stable platform notes. No let alone at night. This Jimbo is incredible and they have different brands but I, I love the shot over system and it stabilizes you can be on a thousand millimeter lens for miles away and it's perfectly stabilizing gyroscopes. So, that's what I use these days to do longer exposures at night of several seconds and get stuff at any of us have seen before because no one's been stupid enough to try that. You know the saying has always been. You know you WANNA be one five hundreds of above in a helicopter. So one thousand so one thousand, a is ideal. So I'm shooting several seconds and that's crazy with the shot over a hand held with Gyros were redoing one twentieth and the second, which is really crazy back. Then it shows us how important technology s what we do these days and on this gear I assume now, as you go round the world you using the same system. Now, this is the the shot of a system that you using if I can afford it absolutely it's an expensive proposition bet. Well three decades learning building honing your craft is that still the same fascination for everything? Do you still have that kid in a candy show approach to things that you have had when I actually got to shoot? Absolutely you know I think the biggest difference today is whether Emma director or commercial photographer I will spend ninety nine percent of my time on the phone doing treatments, briefs, budgets, conference calls client. Calls Travel, and I get to shoot such a small. That's that's why if you're journalist or assurance amateur, we all want to quote unquote ascend to these big positions of being a director or being Nash. Geographer or shooting commercial jobs for apple whatever whatever it may be take stock in your liberty and your ability to just go out and shoot, and you don't have a client to answer to you don't have a deadline to answer to you don't have a budget to answer to you don't have deliverables, shapes and forms and formats to answer to an actress to deal with and logistics, and all you get the idea that kid Kanye store feeling is the same. If not more vibrant today than it was when I was fifteen years old, it never goes away hopefully, and if it does, you probably should do something else. But it occupies you so much less of my year than the other stuff does that's just the nature of the job you know if you if you speak to the average director Spielberg, who is one of the most prolific directors, he's probably spent a few percentage points of his life actually filming versus the selling the editing you know the preparation and it's just a different job and that's true. I. Think every artists that I know we spent a lot of time preparing until you've grown up without i. think fantastic old school thinking of it's about the peaches is about his son is not necessarily about me. Were but but but at this point, well, what do you think you'll be you'll you'll legacy I my children are my legacy That's the most honest answer I have for you my work you know listen. I think I had some effect with my work I know that I I on on several news items where was Katrina or nine eleven I know that because I worked for various large publication that had an effect on people and politics in the way things changed I, know that? With. Things like reverie inspired a lot of people told me they change their careers and change their jobs because of that to be become a videographer. So that's a wonderful legacy for me to have effective people in a positive way. But I am looking to my next thing these days and just keep myself interested in hopefully sharing that passionate in some way or another a legacy is a very big word. You know what keeps me going as far as I'm concerned I've always been mostly a failure. Of Christ I don't believe that that much as forty five hundred have done stuff that perhaps mattered but I've never rested on my laurels since I was a kid and I believe in Kenya continuously volving but in the pushing the envelope but I think at the end of the day, what matters to me, the my most cherished photographs of my children and of being with my those memories and I think you need to never lose sight of that Tra of that fact that you know it's all too easy especially in these careers where you have to travel to get sucked into your career and every assignment.

Now, I've been as you might imagine to a fair few photography galleries and shows though there's one particular. That's a vivid memory from the best part of two decades ago around the time that my own photography was moving from interest to vocation it was two thousand three and in the gardens of. Natural History Museum, a Free Exhibition was drawing crowds. It was unbelievably the museums first outdoor exhibition showing large format images may by photographer yawn artists per tram of stunning landscapes and landmarks across the world just made from charted light aircraft and helicopters selected from one hundred, thousand captured. During more than three thousand flying hours flying over one hundred countries. The natural world as usually seen by birds there were one hundred and fifty images in this exhibition and John Wall Map of the world. So you could chart your own course through it. I was absolutely astounded by the pictures of camel trains from above with long shadows plantations that formed intricate patterns, famous landmarks, color, and the texture of the world as I hadn't seen it before over ten million people saw the exhibition in cities the world over, and I remember buying the book that accompanied the event which has been updated various times since it was first printed nine, hundred and ninety nine, it's a book.

I was going to start by talking about the kind of flying machines that way more likely to utilize for our photography.

Your area work is something now, very much associated with with name and I guess like the early days of DSL, Arabian at large avenues of possibility Dr- drones, you work in helicopters, but just just A. Touch on joins quickly they become smaller in terms of rigs incredible resolution even the small census with his bringing the Konta shoots that you you show make then needs much larger team doesn't it? It's actually not really an. Interesting, and a drone it's you as the pilot and someone else as the operator right or in my case, I'm usually the operator with a pilot even though I am a drone pilot officially with the FAA and actually a fixed wing pilot as well. that being said, it's two people whereas an helicopter it's also to people with a technician on the ground. It's the pilot and then in the back operating, and then there might be a technician there with me are usually a stay on the ground. So it's not that different. Yet surely different manifestation of what the tools can and cannot do you. WanNa fly full-size helicopter five feet from someone's face or ten feet off the ground. It's just very dangerous. For obvious reasons a drone is perfect doing that it's perfect for doing things where if you mess up, you know if there's no one around the worst thing, you can do damage the camera or the drone. So are you using drones and fewer goes? I do use it but I- purely forget for business purposes. It doesn't help me to be drone cinematographer or photographer because everyone every person their mother has a drone it's an extremely saturated market. So it's very hard as a self as drone. Filmmaker res- If. You have a full size helicopter or the shot over on it. That's a bit higher, ever an obstacle for people to to breach. So it's easier to differentiate yourself, and that's that's part of the reason you know that I do a lot of high altitude stuff is because you know drones, GonNa win legally in the US at least go four hundred feet above the ground.

It's Thursday July thirteen. I'm Anthony Davis. Donald. Trump, said he never questioned Russian leader Vladimir Putin about the US intelligence reports that Moscow pay the Taliban to kill American troops in Afghanistan casting doubt on the reports in an interview with axios. Trump who has sought to cultivate warm relations with Moscow has said he was not briefed on the matter before it emerged in news media in late June is called the reports a hoax. Democrats in Congress have accused trump of not taking intelligence information concerning soldier's death. Seriously enough trump has been dogged by criticism that he has been too friendly towards Moscow. Since taking office National Security Adviser Robot O'Brien has said trump.

"It comes to that discussion here as it relates to the pandemic seems to be switching over or migrating revolving over to when the US economy can open up. How should we open up? And a lot of that is predicated upon the virus itself and in his second wave and so on and so forth and those are relying upon a lot of models from healthcare from scientists real sense though is a lot of uncertainty Barry Ritholtz Bloomberg opinion columnists and host of masters in business on Bloomberg Radio is also the chairman and chief investment officer Ritholtz Wealth Management. He joins us on the phone here. Barry so barry thanks for joining us but as we think about this reopening. We're really kind of flying blind army because we've never experienced this before to say the very least. The closest thing we had was the pandemic Just about a century ago the so-called Spanish flu and the technology the medical technology that existed then was so different than today. They had a lock down and and you could see in the history books cities and states that followed the lockdown Suffered a much less substantial second wave and so we're GONNA run Another a rerun experiment. That was done a century ago to see which states Really get hit by a second wave which states flattening curve and which don't it it. It's unfortunately going to be a experiment with real life consequences. Berry you recently. Wrote a column about how models can never get things quite right. I talk to economists. We've spoken with a number of thinkers and investors who basically say we're flying blind. We don't know what to expect and yet by X. Y. Z. How can people investing with any conviction right now? Based on the level of unknowable is right now out there so that's a deeply philosophical question and I'll train you can count on me all right. I'll let me let me walkout on you a bit. So we use models constantly use models all the time and the underlying premise of all these mathematical depictions of the world are simply that hey. The future is likely to look very similar to the past. And as long as there aren't any radical changes going forward. We can rely on our models some models and I use the example of net flicks. Hey when when net flicks uses its model to say based on your viewing habits against the rest of our hundred sixty seven million subscribers like we're going to predict you're gonNA like this if that model goes wrong. Well who cares? You wasted ninety minutes but in other circumstances when things that have never happened before happened. The models just effectively lose their mind and you end up with things like negative oil prices or hey tomorrow is the B. L. S. Employment Situation Report. There has never been a period in history where thirty million people filed first time unemployment claims in a month so whatever comes out of that beal s model. I suspect is going to be not xactly precisely depicting reality because that's the sort of input that breaks models all right so bury the models okay. Limited applicability here in this these unprecedented times so our investors just simply supposed to just kind of look past this quarter's earnings look past the second quarter. Gdp number look past the unemployment data and just kind of focus on twenty twenty one and put Multiple Matt. Twenty twenty one twenty twenty two twenty twenty three There are lots of variables the biggest being. How soon do we have a treatment and beyond that? How soon do we have a vaccine? If you live with a high risk person older person someone with Immunosuppression or any other mobility's And there's a treatment that comes out and we're starting to see lots and lots of promising research. Well as soon as that comes out. This is pretty much behind us or or the process of putting this behind this really ramps. really ramps up and there was just a piece in the Washington Post. Yesterday about the antibodies found in Lama. Blood seem to be smaller than human antibodies and effectively stopping the virus. So who knows what what will finally be the magic bullet. Once that happens we could start looking at twenty twenty one and twenty twenty two and philosophically to to go back to Lisa's question. The uncertainty issue is is always a misnomer because the future is uncertain and during normal times. We do a nice job of lying to ourselves that we think we have some visibility. We think we know what the future holds. Go back and look at any of the corporate gyns any year over the past one hundred. They are always wrong. They are always incrementally readjusting as they get closer and closer to that date. It just went up period like this happens. We find it harder to lie to ourselves and we have to admit we have no idea what the future looks like. All right. Bury Barry Ritholtz founder of ritholtz wealth management. We've moved from the philosophical. Let's go to the practical and we see right now is clearly profound shift or perhaps an acceleration and the trend away from old business. The old economy. It's the New Economy. Which is much more reliant online activity. I'm just wondering how you're advising your clients to invest around that given the fact that that's being priced in in spades right now so we don't think that these sort of external events should cause people to fully Re-jigger their folio. You should have a financial plan. It should assume a certain amount of risk in a certain target. And you WanNa stay with that If you look at the changes in valuation between the US and and oversees all right. I I if you've been very over exposed to overseas and you WANNA throw it all that back you can do that if you have been under exposed to the growth's after technology you can make a change in that direction. I don't see any sort of inflation on the horizon but a number of people have been making that claim and just as a little bit of an insurance policy if you WANNA buy The Treasury inflation protected securities. The tips bonds That that certainly could make sense to a portfolio. I think we're more likely to see deflation than inflation. But Hey you know you don't complain every year when you house doesn't burn down and you already paid for fire insurance so those are the sort of things a little trimming you could do around your portfolio but think back to events like September eleventh or the eighty seven crash. Those aren't the sort of things that weren't a wholesale Redo of a portfolio. They should just make you think. Hey My properly positioned for when we get past this extra analogy and a lot of people are discovering that they weren't properly position heading into it and this is good a time as any to readjust. Barry thanks so much for joining us as always Barry Ritholtz Bloomberg opinion columnists and host of masters in business.

"<music> and now the spiel props you saw the congressional showdown between rod rosenstein of the justice department and representative jim jordan of ohio jordan has an aggressive though not always adept way of peppering people testifying before his committee you know he was a champion wrestler in high school his record was one hundred fifty and one so we know that yesterday he had at least one example to draw upon that one loss because he got a little bit owned by rod rosenstein appreciate your saying isn't personal sometimes it feels that way how do i know sir i mean you interviewed mr struck i didn't so i can't for you then work for us one hundred fifteen thousand people who worked for me sir mr rosenstein did you threaten staffers on the house intelligence committee media reports indicate you did me the reports are mistaken sometimes but this is what they said having the nation's number one law enforcement officer threatened to subpoena your calls and emails is downright chilling did you threaten to subpoena their calls and emails no sir and there's no way to subpoena phone calls well i mean i'm just saying i'm reading what the press said i'm reading suggests that you not rely on what the precedents reversal and take down three points jewish fella from maryland i've seen jordan do his stick before makes a long statement lots of innuendo phrase like seems to me how is it then how can it be sir and no real good question no answerable question at the end yes or no question that makes the answer or have to kind of buy into his questionable premise jordan doesn't wear a suit jacket he just wears his buttondown shirt and he favours yellow ties and he was wearing one yesterday and he clearly relishes the theater of the moment you know he's a he's a one on one grappler that's who he is but you rosenstein this was no game rosenstein was sharper he was better and as we heard he made a fool of the ohio congressman you could call it two different versions of alpha males having a showdown though this moment from earlier in the hearings gave me another of how to think about this teteatete sheila jacksonlee was questioning the fbi's christopher wreck that a chance to review the inspector general's report a have and saw the fractions that were cited to the fbi i'm sorry the fractions infractions support all the infractions yes yes and by fractions i of course meant infractions i do that a lot woop see you know fractions as in the appendage measuring contest between jordan and rosenstein jordan tried to be too cute by half and wound up being about twothirds too short but you know what the premise of this hearing was right it was that inspector general report which cleared the fbi of bias in its clinton investigation but did reveal embarrassing conversations between two career fbi agents peter struck and lisa page and they were having an affair at you not want to exonerate them from sloppiness they're both g men newer g man and g woman and it gives them an f for maybe a d minus as they engage in you know government pillow talk via government issued texts and emails dumb and it does open the door to questions of bias but i have to say when you hear and i don't know how much you've heard of the exact exchange is it concerning did it concern you or did you have that odd feeling that i had which is i actually wound up feeling a little bit better about the top domestic agency charged with my protection in a different hearing this was last week senator john kennedy from the we began reading those exchanges in a in a mocking tone tell me if you react at all like i did to twelve two thousand sixteen lisa page i'm no prude but i'm really appalled by there so you don't go looking in case you haven't heard trump called him the p word the man has no dignity or class he's simply cannot be president well that is in fact an accurate read of the man it does not take top profiler to come up with that but i'm glad the fbi sees things so clearly and how about this to twelve sixteen peter struck oh trump's abysmal i keep hoping this raid land and people will just dumping the problem the end is rubio will likely lose to cruise maybe three three sixteen lisa page god trump is most from human cosign three three sixteen peter struck oh my god trump is an idiot

"Than ninety percent of those children provided the answer that aligned with their natal sex so these kids are not trans kids they just gender non conforming kids who you know were incorporated into the study and their answers knowledge i know that because he acknowledges that he writes that that could be a big problem with the study they invited to many people in and said they d transition yes when they were never yeah and you know those are the those are the strongest predictors for persistence versus assistance girls who said they were girls by and large continued to present girls and identifies girls which is you know not shocking but because they were lumped in with those trance kids and because around forty percent of those kids didn't have didn't meet the diagnostic criteria for generous for it to begin with criteria that have improved since the reality is that we just don't have a good estimate and it's disingenuous to pretend otherwise if it weren't done by jesse single if it were done by i don't know somebody's trans or sis gender is there a version of this article that you think should exist as an atlantic cover piece or the equivalent and you know does grapple with the issue but puts it in you know a better context or if you're grappling with this issue on the cover you're doing it wrong i think if it were done very carefully and respectfully and accurately and gave proportionate weight and urgency to each of the issues at play then i might be interested in seeing the story but i figure saying that the proportional article would be something like d transitioning a tiny thing that rarely happens and isn't really the most important part of the other thing is that the detroit is he talks about are very tiny percentage of the d transitions that exist as well you know we're not talking about the d transitions who do so out of fear or shame and eventually re transition we're not talking about the way that this for ya is medical is in the first place and how discomfort with your body can be misread in that way which i think would make a really interesting article because that gets at a problem that is shared between people who are mistakenly identified as trans and trans people who might be kept out of access to medical care so there are a lot of really interesting nebulous thorny stories to be told about the trans experience and gender non conforming kids and i just don't think this was one of them and i wished that someone else had been given that opportunity in those resources to to tell some of those other stories alex barish is a journalist covering science culture lgbtq issues you could read his writing in slate and from what i'm told i soon in the washington post thank you thank you.

"Were published by jesuit bill he speculates about transneft as a more acceptable alternative to gayness which simply isn't true he says there are definitely stories where it appears christian moms it's always chris it's always moms who are assigned the task of working out a kids gender it seems appear to react excitedly to the idea that their kid isn't really gay but trans it's a hard thing to prove of course but anecdotes i've heard examples particularly when it comes to a fem boys okay so you're worried that that exchange on the message board reveals that he thinks he might think right now america is more pro trans than pro gay or he might think that trans is trendy i think he does have concerns about that he also dismisses third genders and other cultures as kind of a dumping ground for gender non conforming men as opposed to a discrete identity unto themselves with rich histories you know he talks about how he thinks that trans people are well suited to talk about say the humiliation of the bathroom bills but he doesn't think trans people are more qualified to write about the tricky science stuff going on here than i am i think that if there were a trans writer and maybe it's you who is really well read in on this and the atlantic knew about that person you definitely want to read that only because the person was an expert i think he just saying expertise is expertise you might disagree with his expertise but what did the identity give you in terms of actually waiting through the science well that's the thing i don't think that he has much in the way of expertise and i think that the suggestion okay so that's an expert problem not an identity but it's also insulting to people like julius arana who has literal phd in biology in seventeen years of postdoctoral experience and evan from slate whose coverage of trans issues is incredibly measured in rigorous and the last thing is there there was a lot of play made by jez abell to the fact that he admits that he goofed on interpreting a famous study about de transitioning but tell me if i'm wrong i i really mean this the way he goofed was true the side that would be more favorable to transact vists right he goofed by saying there's a study that shows a lot of people d transition but take that with a big grain of salt and a lot of transact vists said the same thing take that with a big grain of salt but then he went back into the study and said actually not that big a grain of salt as i thought a little grain of salt is that it was that the nature of his goof so that is the nature of one of his mistakes with respect to this another study well the dutch study the yes this article links i think three times to him saying he goofed and i think very much gives the misimpression that he goofed in a way that he was making up statistics that were harmful to the trans community right but single still hasn't acknowledged those salient disagreements with his interpretation he basically in my experience only flags up the areas that continue to firm his own expectations which i find quite interesting so so he makes a big thing i was wrong turns out that it turns out i was more right so as i said before the myth isn't that assistance exists it's but it occurs as highly as he purports that it does in that new york magazine piece and elsewhere so looking at a handful of the studies that have given us this eighty percent figure including that study when directly asked are you a boy or girl more.

"It's much better for a person to be sis than trans if it's at all possible even if the probability is that they will turn out to be the assumption i if the assumption were trans is absolutely just as good as sis there would your weight and sit right and also the wait and see is exactly the kind of onesizefitsall approach that he's purporting to be against because he's assuming that four old kids the best possible way to handle this is to take x amount of time and see whether they outgrow it and then do whatever i don't think that you know d transitions should be pitted against trans people in any way and i'm not suggesting that telling those stories or acknowledging uncertainties is inherently transphobic or programmatic but i do think that this story has been told over and over and over in different publications e transitioning yes and this year this specific home away come away thinking that that is a is big problem or as big a phenomenon as the opposite which is the roadblocks that trans people actually have yes i do think that that's a legitimate risk of this piece because he spends a disproportionate amount of time and grants disproportionate urgency to the problem of de transitioning i think a case can be made that we have to say well what is the canvas that he's writing on he writes these stories that raise interesting and i think very valid issues about where the line is and what is the best thing to do for the children you know against the backdrop of not at all being anti trans but wanting to have your kid choose the best identity for your kid and your kids life yeah i mean my problem is that this is sort of written with the assumption that they're on overwhelming forces preventing people from seeking this carrots it's sort of whipping up concerns mostly through anecdotes about people being rushed into decisions that they are too young to make and the tagline of the article on the cover of this july august issue is your child says she's trans she wants hormones and surgery she's thirteen and so that's scary not immediately generates a concern the clock is and it's it's it's not really there you know for prepubescent children the only thing that's going to happen is social transition if that if they are diagnosed with gender dis fauria than it might be recommended that they you know are allowed to dress in the way they prefer or pick a name that they prefer or use pronouns that are different from the ones that they have and see if that feels right to them and so what does the read the cover line again and tell me what the rational reasonable answer to that question is if it's a question your child says she's trends she wants hormones and surgery she's thirteen hey alex your child says she's trans she wants hormones in and surgery she's thirteen what what's the best advice there go to gender clinician and if this child has expressed consistent insistent persistent identification with a different gender than you can go from there she might be put on hormone blockers that you have time to think about this and that's not controversial no she wouldn't disagree with that though yeah i mean i think another another thing is that there is this sort of extra textual stuff about single and his treatment of the trans community and his views about the trans community and also the people who are responding to what he's saying so but my soul is for journalism and this is really solid journalism and you know if you're interested in the subject i think it's a fine treatment of the subject perhaps we could argue if the subject deserves treatment but you know i think i think that define argument have but i think it does well do we want to talk about his emails on that list serve yeah okay because i found those somewhat revealing in terms of the the biases that he's coming jazz abell published there is a chat group that he's part of an it's like a left lefty journalists chat group yeah and his twitter i think is back on twitter it's all about you know trump and immigration and just like trump so it's just a regular liberal guy yeah yeah but in this series of emails that.

"As a society where accepting hopefully one day we'll even be celebrating the realization that there are many people whose gender identities are not the ones that are assigned to them at birth and here's my totally noncontroversial stance on the issue we want as many happy people living happy lives in whatever way makes them happy as there could be in the world as parents let's say you have a child and they're in that group of non gender conforming you might wonder what to do so certainly i hope listen to the child support the child you might take your child to a psychiatrist and the psychiatrist you would expect would be able to either them refer to someone who will help with the journey it's all interesting i think and i know that science writer jesse single thinks that it's interesting the standards of what to do with children in this situation or pretty unclear but there's a growing at least consensus or practicality of what to do with the many many more children who are showing up and saying hey i don't think of myself as a girl or a boy the standards of care are changing so single is a writer who wrote the cover story in the atlantic and what it was about is determining if a child is experiencing just four ya which is the term for what i've been talking about if they're feeling that the gender assigned to them at birth isn't right then what are the steps who to talk to what is the top thinking in the field saying now in terms of hormone blockers a medical interventions so i read jesse singles twelve thousand word piece in the atlantic i was interested i got admit at times i was uninterested like i said it was twelve thousand words and there were a lot of caveats and cautions and to be fares and the research is in totally complete or even close to complete yet and i knew that it was a fraud subject indeed after came out the reaction showed how fraud it was the trans community or vocal components thereof hated the article toward a part but i read their complaints and i couldn't help but still thinking that we had a situation where there was an activist community with good intentions assailing up pretty solid piece of journalism to the most high profile criticisms were in slate there was the co cliff who writes a column for us she tweeted disparagingly about jesse single she said he's obsessed with trans women and she called him creepy and then she left twitter but more more useful than that is alex barisha's piece he wrote in slate in a piece called sacred bodies a critique of this piece and it was i think the best critique because it says something's i disagree with but it doesn't make any factual misstatements so i wanted to talk to alex about this hello alex thanks for coming into the lion's den here thank you thank you for having me what facts to jesse single get wrong so singles mistake isn't to acknowledge that there are quote unquote two sides to this issue it's treating them as though they're equally coleman or equally validated culturally and medically.

"We should not need five grieving families in a community torn apart to know that it's wrong and say so maybe there are some people who can imagine across america who brushoff trump's words as just words oh yeah it goes after the media all all presidents do that and maybe we imagined if these people so aw these five funerals over the course of the next week they'd rethink how casually they took his words and maybe if we imagine that these people exist we could also imagine a situation where this shooter or another is undeniably inspired by trump's media baiting and if we had that set of circumstances i guess we could say well then some people would change their minds i guess then trump would be exposed to the people he's not already exposed to but we shouldn't need that set of circumstances we shouldn't need it our fellow citizens who still give trump an approval when gala basques they shouldn't need it either and i also have this sense that in our tribal america of today that it wouldn't even change the minds of these imagined people who slough off cries of fake news and the news being enemy of the people i just know that tucker carlson and his ilk would be able to gin up weeks of coverage and give the uncaring people right now a permission structure to still not care about what the president says about the media so today there are five dead newspaper employee's a madman killed them wouldn't have killed them without a gun i say that certainly wouldn't have killed them without all his rage and there's another truth which is that the president's denigration of the free press has dire an awful consequences in the truth of that statement and the tragedy in maryland or immutable whether or not they are related on the show today oh don't worry it gets a lot more fun from this point on in the bill will take you inside congressional testimony of the lisa page peter struck affair literally unfair but first trans activists came down hard on a writer of an atlantic cover story who was dealing with the issue of what to do what psychiatrists and psychologists should do with adolescence who feel gender just for you i talked to i think the fares minded among those critics as we try to sort out was this journalism was this anti journalism activism or was it something in between.

"The following content is explicit it's friday june twenty nine twenty eighteen from slate it's the gist i might pass so what we saw in annapolis maryland is just obviously terrible it's awful but i have said off and on this show not to look at the motivation of the shooter has the thing to blame in such a tragedy it is not the strains in culture that prompted shooting and right now could change depending on your information it does not seem that donald trump's statements during the campaign and afterwards against the media prompted this shooter the shooter had deep animus toward the paper before trump ever came on the scene the shooter was angry the shooter was bitter and yes he was a trump supporter but most of the angry bitter people are though not all of them look at the steve scalise shooter if anyone were however to check challenge the idea of not blaming the ideology you know my general mantra on this don't blame the ideology that's in the ether blamed the person who's twisting that ideology and grabbing a gun but if there was any figure that complicates my philosophy it would be the president because of the stature of the office and of course because of this particular presidents domination of the discourse as it were why did the shooter shoot well because of those things that shoot because of guns it's the biggest thing they're very angry people in japan there are no shootings they're they're angry people in england there are very few shootings they're they're stabbings in england shootings with an antigun in assassination with an antigun a single shot but no mass slaughters they're angry australians australians took away their guns pretty much eliminated mass slaughter so it is guns first and foremost it is the derangement and the anger of india vigils so by derangement i don't just mean insanity and i'm certainly not getting into a fit sanity or legal insanity in the clinical sense or the legal sense but it's anger it's this deep anger all around us that foments and metastasized is this is this is a characteristic of our modern age again there are a lot of angry celebrate men the fact that they kill people has a lot to do with guns has a lot to do with the horrible virulent nuttiness of the incell movement but to be fair about it there have been black men who are adherents of the black lives matter movement who have killed cops there are people who are antiabortion nuts who have shot up abortion places but there was also as i mentioned a bernie sanders supporter who took his let us say passion way too far so if you want to say without donald trump excoriating the media maybe we wouldn't have this shooting i don't know it's true but if you were to say that i think to be logically consistent you'd have to say if it weren't for the black lives matter movement there might be a couple more living cops in dallas and new york city but i don't look at it like that i don't think we should look at it or judge it like that i do think we should judge an ideology but i don't look at it like that i don't think that we should judge the merits or horrible ness of an ideology based on the worst people who claim to be it here of that ideology and to some extent the bernie sanders shooter certainly twisted that ideology quite a lot the antiabortion shooter in colorado i mean if you read some of their statements online he didn't really go much further than what they advocate right there in black and white i'm certainly arguing that we do need to use critical judgment when evaluating on ideology and don't think it's proper to subcontract that judgment out to who's the worst person ever to act in the worst way who claims to be a follower of that ideology and when it comes to president trump and his attacks on the media is it even an ideology if it's an ideology it's just maybe authoritarianism but it is as far as it goes an idea and donald trump's demonization of journalists is wrong it is a morally reprehensible stance for anyone let alone the leader of the country that led the way to guaranteeing freedom of the press to take it is absolutely wrong no matter who does what upon hearing his quote unquote ideas and we do not need a body counter literal smoking gun to call it wrong and.
