Rep. Devin Nunes Reacts to Haitian Migrant Disaster at Texas Border
"Very excited to welcome our first guest here on america first freedom fighter power excellence on capitol hill former chairman of the intelligence committee representing california's. Twenty second district congressman. devin nunes. welcome back to america. I always a pleasure thank you yes indeed. My friends call me sea bass. Don't ask why so. It's a special reason we've got to talk about dr. We talk about the only time to come out after almost two years. But first things first your reaction to the tragic footage coming out of the haitians under the bridge and del rio and then today what happened. Now with the un. He's leaving biden. Says we're going to get it under control. I thought they fixed the border that we broken. The trump administration congressman. Well like always there up you skating. And they're hoping that the press covers them. I mean the challenge that they have now is becoming impossible because there's so many people at the border remember. You've got the del rio crossing where the haitians are. But you still have multiple other crossings where there's thousands of people a day that are coming across. I was just down there a couple a couple of months ago. It just never stops never stops because the binding administration changed the rules on where you can apply and how you can apply for asylum. That's all that's going on here so I would like to know how these haitians all arrived here. It has to be that they paid money to the drug cartels. Essentially what you have. Is you have the drug cartels running people into the united states of america where this is now a money making scheme and and i say that not to go into something This was the california border. But just a just a month ago or so. I was down there and i ran into people and i thought they spoke spanish and then i realized they didn't speak spanish at all. It was because the cartels had brought them from romania of all places family so so this is now a mexican drug cartels running a money making operation and the by the administration refuses to do anything about it. So guess what the more money that can be made the more you will get it. And so the cartels. I'm sure are running boats and planes as we speak just plugging the pipeline and putting money in their

James Comey and the FBI Tried to Frame Trump for a Crime He Didn't Commit
"Talking about the Jeremy port it is a massive massive scandal It is unfolding before a very eyes and there are people that knew that they were trying to get rid of a president of the United States of America only because they didn't like him politically And they were doing it not based in fact Not based in fact they were doing it because they hated him And they had to fabricate a story to then frame him This is no different by the way than accusing someone of committing a heinous crime When you know that they didn't do it and you don't care so you deliberately charge them with a crime and frame them for a crime That is exactly what the FBI did that's exactly what James Comey did in my opinion That's exactly what the Chinese communist news network CNN did That's exactly what MSNBC did And all these other scumbags in the media that for four years for four years they ran a story that Donald Trump colluded with the Russians and they impeached him over it And they're the ones that wrote the damn story Wake up America to what's happening
John Solomon Knew John Durham Was Building a 'Small Number of Indictments' Back in January
"John Solomon I'm going to play something from you that he had to say And this was back on January the 24th Of January 24th So I want you to put that in perspective of when this was Take a listen John Durham is continuing a criminal investigation We are going to be talking this morning about the Biden agenda Do you expect Durham to come out with indictments even in the face of a new administration and the Biden agenda unfolding Everything that I see in the activity of the investigation and everything I hear from defense lawyers and others that are familiar with what's going on is that he is building a small number of indictments trying to get the evidence to get there There have been some delays and there's fights over evidence in the secret behind closed doors grand jury fights but all the evidence is pointing toward him trying to bring criminal charges probably in the first quarter of this year That's what I'm hearing Of course there's a new sheriff in town when Merrick Garland gets confirmed as attorney general as we expect he will He'll have a say and maybe he'll take the and put the case and set it aside But right now John Durham looks to be building a small number of indictments focused on the top of the FBI That's very important The very top of the leadership in the FBI That's where he's looking Also in these documents that were declassified we learned about Christopher Steele and a confession a year after he was fired Tell me about that So important Christopher Steele finally describes his motive in September 2017 Remember he was fired in November for leaking to the meet in November 16 They bring it back in September He said here are my two motors My first motive was James Comey reopened the Clinton email case I thought that was going to hurt Hillary Clinton's chances I leaked to the news media to create a different storyline in the public And secondly I considered Donald Trump to be my main opponent and I didn't want him to be president because he would help my I think he would hurt the Great Britain U.S. relationship Now remember he's a foreigner He's a British former MI 6 agent This is the clearest evidence that a foreigner intermediate election We started the Russian collusion investigation thinking Donald Trump and Russia were colluding together And we ended it knowing that Hillary Clinton's handpicked MI 6 investigator intervened in our election because he didn't like Donald Trump and he wanted to help Hillary Clinton What a role reversal What a role reversal is right John Salman they're saying this back on January 24th Everything he just said by the way it's become true All of it Now the question now is can the media look the other way long enough Can the media look the other way long enough that you won't hear about this story
It's Hilarious That Rachel Maddow Suddenly Cares About Free Speech
"One piece of irony though I have seen about this You remember Russia Rachel maddow MSNBC host She spent three years of our lives lying to everyone about this fake collusion hoax and she's very smart She's a Rhodes scholar I believe She knew she was lying and she lied anyway on the air She told this Russian collusion fairytale over three years She had to know she was lying She's not stupid because the alternative is that she was dumb and fell for this first grade level hoax that any idiot and some young kid could have figured out But Rachel maddow ironically was complaining on her Twitter account I find this to be ironic and kind of hilarious She's complaining to Google because Google it's alleged that according to a New York Times story that Google did Vladimir Putin's bidding and blocked anti Kremlin content as voting in Russia and their national elections started up So Rachel maddow is all upset about that You know Google interfering in free speech which is tragically hilarious because it was Rachel maddow and others who were pushing the collusion hoax while her leftist buddies she adores were pushing censorship on conservatives like me and elsewhere who warned people like Rachel maddow for years that she was propagating a hoax And she didn't have now all of a sudden She's into free speech when it's Russia That is hilarious Hilarious that she's all of a sudden a warrior The Joan of Arc of free speech That's a good

U.S. Spat With France Shows Challenge of Keeping Allies Unified
"I want you to put on the secretary of state hat. That many believe people believed you're going to wear. Should hillary clinton have won the two thousand sixteen election. And tell me what you would do if you were sitting on the seventh floor of the state department and this submarine controversy arose. And you might want to recap it for people who didn't listen to talk about it last week. You're on the air with me when the story broke. Yeah in in very short strokes. Australia signed up for france to build diesel electric submarines which are pretty good but over the last week or so they have done a one eighty and signed up with the united states in the united kingdom to build vastly better nuclear powered submarines. The french have lost a multi billion dollar contract. Their outrage what i would have done in retrospect was spend more time speaking with our allies. The french our oldest allies the first nation who came and fought alongside us in the revolutionary war. There are very fond of pointing that out as we subsequently fought a small war with them but such was the nineteenth century at the moment there still very strong allies within nato and so this came across to them as a very bad industrial policy. But also a real stab in the back to an ally. If i were sitting in tony blinken shoes right now and tony by the way. Interestingly is a franco phonic. He speaks beautiful. French lived in france for many years. I think he is and ought to be the point. Man on trying to rebuild this at the moment quite shaky set of relationships. And it's not just france hewitt's it's also with europe. Broadly we see particularly in the wake of brexit as the united kingdom pulls out. We now see france taking a lead in germany in working toward a much more independent eu policy. That'll bleed into our efforts to stand up to china. That's why this is important. I think secretary blinken that ought to be pretty much at the top of his chat list. Right now is working with his counterparts in paris.
The Taliban Must Deal With These Leaders to Avoid Civil War
"Jona goldberg wrote a great book. A couple years ago we talked about the big man theory. In every failed state big man emerges usually the guy with the most guns skinny teenagers and maybe out of that state grows. Do you expect a civil war in afghanistan admiral after a period of time when these tribes fall back to what these tribes have always done which fight each other when they don't fight the west certainly. That's the long in unfortunate history of afghanistan. The taliban are still you know two three weeks into this thing playing their version of taliban two point oh. I saw some shots yesterday of connie the minister of the interior. Who's who has between five and ten million dollar bounty on his head depending on who you talk to a pure terrorist. A dark figure yet. He's walking around kabul effectively handing out candy in the streets. He's being kind and charming and smiling. That's kind of the face of the taliban at the moment if they keep that up. I think they've got a shot at avoiding of major breakdown if they revert to their old practices. It's civil war right around the corner. Because the northern alliance's that big trips to the north. They don't want to be ruled by the pashtoons in the south Unfortunately i would suspect. That is the future of afghanistan. we ought to care for the reasons we just talked about you. Which are that leads to ungoverned spaces that leads to the rise of al qaeda that provides safehaven to slavic state That's what we need to avoid being surprised on all the more reason that we maintain an intelligence capability in afghanistan. As difficult as. that's going to be.

Is the Left Intentionally Trying to Kill Off Conservatives?
"I don't know that. I fully ascribed to john. Nolte's argument that people like sturt. Stern went on a tear. Recently where he mocked all the people who have been dying of cova the radio host has been six or seven conservative radio hosts who've died of covert and they were anti vaxxers apparently or allegedly and they were anti mask and they got covert and some of them had a deathbed conversion. I hope people get vaccinated. They supposedly said who knows if any of that. What portion of any of that is true but nolte's argument is by mocking and ridiculing and taunting people. The left is intentionally trying to kill off conservatives. I'm not sure that there's not some merit to that. I'm sorry. I've been thinking a lot about that since i saw the article last night looking for mexican if ivermectin is effective against covert as many studies. Suggest it is. Don't believe me. Look at the nih on the nih website. Why are they show. Anti ivermectin tucker. Carlson last night made a pretty pretty profound observation about drugs. In america and how easy it is to get one kind of drug but not another. Check this out so early treatment. Not just with ivermectin but with all of the therapeutics that have been used in the past year is amazingly and mysteriously attacked denied ignored. Anybody who touches it. It's touching the third rail. And i discussed it a few months ago and they came after me. My twitter account was suspended. It's still suspended even after. I appealed but the twitter courts are apparently not in session now and they haven't responded to my emails in the last three weeks. Perhaps this segment will help. Unlock it Other physicians had been similarly attacked. They've had their prescriptions denied. So why is it happening. Why is early safe. Effective treatment not being talked about. I think that's a very very important question.

"Long before launching anything or making any real profits just thinking about that list and of all those needs and costs and the energy it's going to take is overwhelming enough to keep us from even starting right. Let me be real with you. You don't need any of that to start not a copyright not a website designer not even twelve nine thousand nine domain a lot of cases the thing i see people getting hung up on the most in the early stages is perfectionism and the way that things look now. I don't think most of us would say that we're perfectionist per se but it can be downright scary to put something new out there and you always want to lead with a strong first impression like you taught and so often we get stuck we delay as we tweak and perfect we try to be as prepared as possible and look as professional and put together as possible and it ends up taking all of this time and attention and even money to when you could have quickly launched let done be better than perfect as you get your idea out into the world. Then you can pay attention to the public response. Start bringing in some prophets able and take any feedback you used to adjust and tweak and build the look and feel of the business as you go if your business is a slow grow. I love that i always say the slower. The growth the deeper the roots. And when we rush things we optimist. Important clues or data or feedback. That could help us serve more people and serve them even better like my entire business has been an example of a slow climb in pivoting and learning as i go now.

Its something super cohesive and well thought out better equipped to handle whatever happens right like i get it. It's a lot of pressure to put yourself out.

That's a lot of work. So i guess the question. What made the two of you decide to self manage to. How did you start. Educating yourself on how to do that effectively we it.

Hi, I'm Jonathan Strickland. And for ten years, I've been host of the podcast tech stuff. I look at how technology like radar cloaking devices work, but I also explore the amazing stories behind tech such as how a famous actress actually invented a process that technologies like wifi, bluetooth us today, you can find tech stuff on apple podcasts or the pod catching service of your choice. I'll talk to you again really soon. All right. The economics are obviously one hurdle that has to be overcome before these things are flying buzzing all around our cities. But you mentioned that that these flying vehicles today are maybe where Thomas vehicles were three to four years ago. It's an interesting parallel because obviously, self driving cars have come a long way in the past three to four years. It now seems likely that they'll become a reality in some form or another. They're no longer sci-fi and hype, but the they have run into some problems and I guess put morbidly. They've run into some people. They've have been crashes there. There was a fatality in Arizona famously involving Uber, and there were people who, in retrospect that Uber moved too fast, put stuff on the road before they were really sure it was safe. Is that a fair criticism of Uber first? And then then Secondly, how do you, if so, how do you avoid a repeat how to how to folks who are. Advocating for flying vehicles avoid moving too fast as well, because there's obviously the competition and the rivalries that push each company to try to get their technology to market. I, yeah. So I think it's, it's certainly fair to town was vehicle. Technology is is very complex and operating these domains. You know, there's a, the long, getting the long tail of all these events, right? Is very hard and will continue to take a lot of focus. It's critical to be testing and simulation on clothes courses, but there will never really need to be testing on the roads as well. And so companies will need to be doing that and and they most are are being, you know, quite quite responsible in doing so. But it does highlight the importance of the safety driver program in in making sure that the companies are are doing this responsibly as possible. And certainly. I think the regulators in different states and and. And the US are all trying to figure out what exactly that regime should look like to enable testing. A thing that's interesting about urban aviation is on some level. The operational domain is is almost easier to operate in because you don't have all of the randomness and complexity and that happens on the ground, be it, pedestrians, bicyclists animals, you know, running in the streets, you've got birds Drakes, of course, then you've got weather. But in aviation, a lot of a lot of this is already happening. You know, auto pilot is used in airplanes almost ninety percent if not more of the time. So in some ways, the complexity I feel a maybe somewhat reduced. In going to a Thomas then on the ground. The other thing is actually for at least an Uber skates and maybe others as well, not everyone is imagining these flights starting Thomas, but also having pilots at first, which actually, I think conserve not only is an important way to get for me to be, but as an ambassador for new type of technology in a similar way that when elevators were first launched, even though you didn't need a person, they, they electrons elevators. They still kept a doorman to get people to feel comfortable. So I think that that will actually tend to look a little bit different, but it will be critical for regulators to make sure that these things are. Certified and flight ready before they're before being tested? Absolutely. So what's the time line looking on that? Because I remember a couple of years ago, Uber was saying that they wanted to see this by twenty twenty or maybe they're even saying that last year or at the last elevate conference. And that struck me as kind of funny because following the drone industry as used to for Recode, you can't even fly drones out of line of sight of the operator, and they've been trying to make drone regulations like without a waiver for like seven, ten years. You know, this is, you know, you can't even fly a drone at night much less a something like this low altitude airspace with people in it. What are your thoughts on on the one this will actually happen? So I think there's two components that one is it goes back to are we talking about flight? I Thomas say pilot, probably going to be regulated. I bring it up is yeah, you can. Helicopter is a veto and you can currently travel by helicopter in cities. So this concept actually exists. Okay. The big difference, obviously, drones and beyond visual line of sight or Voces it's, you know, unpiloted. So I think that ends up being one big difference. I think you know a Thomas flight. I imagine as many years out and would require drone regulation getting done right when we require Tana's vehicles on the ground getting testing, I think can lead both of those proof points for anyone would imagine. Vitale being done a Thomas. I think separately. You can get experimental Certa exceptions for a vehicle detest it, I think. And so that's actually went over says, trying to have things launched by twenty twenty. They mean some experimental flights in their cities for commercial flight, the they're talking about twenty twenty three. And I think you know, to get to twenty twenty three will require close collaboration with the FAA and a lot of progress. And as we can see from the drone regulation, that can be sometimes very difficult. So I think that will be the stretch target, the twenty twenty three. That's that's. That's what they're hoping for and that that is not outside the realm five years from now. There's a pathway to do that. If there's a lot of good collaboration. I think the question that sort of embedded in a lot of this, what would it take to be scale, right? Because I think or even just in LA. Well, I guess what I mean is it's in a city right helicopters exist. Now they're not at scale. There will be a technology evolution over the next few years that could enable more of this, but then they'll need to be a regulatory of Lucien. And that will be both at the federal level with the FAA, but also the city's so cities will need to develop permits to allow these things to land. So in San Francisco, for example, you can currently fly a helicopter above the city, but it's actually quite difficult to land a helicopter. So this will be. An ongoing discussion with both the federal government end cities around deploying this new technology. So let's segue quickly into what you're working on. Now, as we alluded to one of the big problems with autonomous vehicles, the way they're being done by by Uber and Waymo. And the other big players is that they're trying to make them capable of handling absolute anything that could come up on any street in cities like Phoenix in Atlanta, and that's just it's an incredibly hard AI problem. As I understand it, your startup voyage is ending to get self driving cars to market more quickly by making the problem and easier one to solve. So you're starting in like retirement communities, right? Like like the villages is this massive retirement community in Florida. Why does that make the problem easier? So there's that's exactly right. And I think there are a few reasons why can help develop the problem and allow to to. Launch earlier. So one is by operating in a closed community, like a retirement, retirement community, you limit the operational domain and the the various complexity. So of course, there's things like weather and so by starting in areas with with better weather, that's that's one thing. Your also choosing roads that are wider, and so they are fewer cars in them than cities. You're reducing the number of items like bicyclists or or pedestrians in some communities like this, but also another big one is speed. So in these in these communities, the vehicles are going to be going twenty twenty five miles per hour. And what's really great about that is it also reduces the danger if there might be an incident as well as you know, reduces or increase the amount. The reaction time that the safety driver has, and then it also can allow working directly with those communities to help implement infrastructure that can be readily suitable to help deploy these things as well. And so you can really create a strong relationship with the the community governing body in a way to be more nimble in really, and targeted and getting these deployed in a way that you really couldn't expect to do in a large city that's dealing with so many different modes of transportation all at once.

"So you're serving a few different areas in needs, right? Yeah. I guess I would just generally be more exciting. To to invest a building that political capital from public transit. But I understand how some people might want Skype are. There could be mixed use case. I guess it also say, I think we consistently under invest in public structure and it's a real problem we're off in left, and I think Uber and lifter. An example of this of we either really just need to make it happen where we need to start doing some other things in the shorter term. And oftentimes these two sides get at loggerheads with each other, but I don't see a ton of capital infrastructure dollars flowing. And so then there's a question for us and communities and societies around how do we respond. So I think more commuter transit is important and I am all for it. I don't see from like a real politics perspective that money flowing anytime soon. And just to clarify when you when you're working on this at Uber, it's not like a private hell. Copter private jet, right? It's it's more like the the. Lift line or the Uber Uber pool? Yeah, Uber pool where you would sign up to get a ride in one of these flying contraptions and a bunch of other people are several other people would be sharing that ride with you. Right. That's right. First of all, kudos to you for a wedding, flying car and Vitale with the flying contraption. Yeah, maybe that'll catch on. Yeah, is super punchy. Very few syllables like it. No, I think you're exactly right. So it'll be it'll operate like an Uber pool. And I think this is one reason why I think we're starting to see for the first time it could be conceivable way to get around the city is. The economics really only makes sense when you start to share these things. And they're also probably only to your point earlier around an effective way of moving people. If you're moving them at least four at a time rather than one at a time. And the only way you can really hope to get that sort of ability to do that is when you have enough density of people on the network, making this making an ask for this, so you couldn't have gotten to where you are with the potential now, unless you had rideshare and then pooled rideshare changing these behaviors. And this is another step down the road and that development I tend to think of the flying contraptions as you call them sort of where Thomas vehicles were three to four years ago where people in the industry and engineers thought that this is a real potential, but it hadn't really reached sort of a broader acceptance. And I think you know, in three to four years, people will realize that that this really could be a thing. Provided that there are is the right regulatory regime put in place to enable it. I have a kind of zoomed out question before getting to kind of the the regulatory issues, and, and I also want to say that, you know this technology is being developed and it's not like we can. We can stop it and you know tech is going to progress. And so as Senate is being developed, I am glad to hear that you all are in conversation with the cities that it will be implemented in because too often, these conversations do not happen in the same room. But I'm curious, do these vehicles actually exist yet? I've seen a lot of shiny CGI videos or even some that looked kind of real, but I haven't seen one. So I, I know the flying c do that that Larry page is invested in with Kitty Hawk does exist, does does the does the veto or contraption whatever you wanna call it the the flying car for lack of a better term exist yet? Yeah. So there's a bunch of prototypes, the different companies are working on. And at this point we're seeing, there's probably, you know, at least fifteen companies working in this. There's a bunch of a bunch of easy money going for it. So you got a lot of prototypes in, you know, test flights that have taken off. I think what really, there's a lot of work to be done in developing the battery strength to have the longer ranges that people are talking about right around victories are really hard lines contraptions. Because you have the propellers and the weight and they just it's takes a lot of battery life. Yeah. Oh, so one of the one of the insights is this concept of distributed electric repulsion. So instead of one big rotor you have say, eight, smaller rotors, and they each operate independently and are powered by themselves. You can sort of reduce the battery need a little bit. But yeah, so I think that that's some of the big work to be done over. I know is really intent on doing all electric on day one. And so that for them will be a real, a real important technology developed. I think other companies are exploring hybrid, so that would reduce the battery need. It also has its own energy and environmental implications. So I think we've definitely there's been demo flights, ah, various various types. I think the the range in this sort of full-throated vehicle ready to ready to ready to go as probably another couple years off. More from our interview with just an early after breaking. If

Then we're coming to you from sleet and future tense partnership between slate eras state university at new America. Today's show we'll talk about a new study suggests the internet might not have played the crucial role and Trump's election victory that we tend to assume and then flying cars and self driving cars. We'll be joined by Justin Erlich who till recently was the head of policy for a Thomas vehicles and urban aviation at Uber. His now off on a new venture as VP of strategy policy and legal for a startup called voyage will talk to him about his work at Uber and voyage and get his perspective on the hype over flying cars or as he might call them Vitale's Vitale, right. That's vertical takeoff and are on landing in some way and just let y'all know you're listening to this episode that was recorded far into the past. It was recorded on July twenty fourth, and you're hearing it two weeks. Out. That's because we had some travel ahead of us, but it's still a great show. Thanks for tuning again. Well, how's it going is going well, thanks April. How about you? I am doing okay. I know that for news week we actually are going to talk about a bit of academia, what's on the plate. All right. So there's a new study that was published in the journal plus one. The study comes from economists at Stanford University and Brown University, and the conclusion or at least the strong implication of the study is that the internet did not play the deciding role in Donald Trump's victory that we sometimes tend to assume. Okay. So we've been talking about how the internet played a role in the election, pretty much nonstop since the election before the election. So what you're saying is kind of a punch and they get here. That's the whole point of show. I mean, like I don't know what I'm doing with my life, but that's fine. Okay. So what's the conclusion? Right? So I will let me back up to the methodology. Actually. What the study looked at is how Donald Trump perform among voters. Who actually use the internet versus voters who don't use the internet and it gets a little complicated. When we dive into the weeds, they looked at three different measures to try to figure out whether people use the internet. Two of them come from a survey called the American national election studies. This is a data set that goes back to nineteen ninety six. And then a third one is a model that the that the authors of the study developed that predicts the likelihood of internet use for given person based on their demographics. So, but by all three of these measures, what they found is that Donald Trump actually underperformed previous Republican presidential candidates among people who use the internet and he outperformed previous Republican candidates among people who don't have access to the internet or don't get news online. So to put that in plain English, a lot of the people voting for Trump, we're not using the internet at all, which makes it hard to believe that the internet was why or that you know, fake news or read at trolls or online. Information was the reason that they're voting for now, the immediate problem with this study that I'm sure you noticed too, is that culture doesn't travel in this kind of formulaic way where, oh, I see it on the internet and therefore I am influenced people see something on the internet, and then they talk about it and then it becomes news and then Sean Hannity talks about it and you know things move and flow and with Wayne more freedom than this kind of like formula where you use the internet, therefore you're influenced by the internet? Yes, that's an excellent point. And it's the first thing that I brought up on the phone when a head of chance to talk to one of the study's authors as Jesse Shapiro his encompassed at Brown University, he's aware of that. And actually the study was the paper was written fairly carefully to try to try to sort of hedge said, look, the conclusion that the internet didn't drive Trump's victory depends on a few assumptions. One of those assumptions is that the internet affects people's voting behavior only if they're on the internet or can only directly. Their voting behavior. What you brought up the point you brought up would violate that assumption. So it would say actually the internet can affect people's voting behavior even if they're not on the internet because it shapes how the news gets made. We know the people in the media are on Twitter all the time. So if as you pointed out, if the personalities on Fox News are reading Twitter all day using that to inform their newscasts and then somebody at home is watching Fox News. They may have been influenced by stuff that was on the internet even if they aren't on the internet themselves. That's a fair point and one that the authors do allow for. Yeah, it's interesting. 'cause like I don't really enjoy memes very much because my heart is frozen called my friends do. And so they talk about memes in Idaho learn about funny things on the internet from the internet. I learn about them because people force me to listen to them, talk about them. I don't know. It's interesting. What, what other holes did you find in this study though? I mean, I think it's important to note that, yes, a lot of Trump supporters are not on the internet, but I'm still just not convinced that it wasn't effective in part because the Trump campaign spent so much money on it, and they were so calibrated with the money that they spent. We know that they were all kinds of testing models that they were using to see how well their stuff was getting picked up, and I don't think they would have kept pumping so much money into it, had it not have been doing something right, and probably a big thing Facebook spent. I mean, rather Trump spent a ton of money on Facebook eighty, five million. If I recall Theresa, Hong is one of his, you know, has of social media said in a BBC interview last year. Yes. And that is a lot of money. I don't wanna for trade these as holes in the study for say, because the authors are careful with their with their conclusions and they're clearly like very smart people. So tell me some stuff that came up for you though. Right? So so another sort of wonky point that I raised is the demographic among which Trump had the most remarkable success compared to prior Republican candidates was whites with white people without a college degree. He just absolutely dominated that segment in a way that that no Republican candidate in modern history has done that is also a segment that is among the least likely to use the internet. And so you could say, well, look Trump was always going to appeal to a less well educated, less high income, less internet savvy crowd. But because of the way of the dynamics, the internet and because of how his campaign used the internet, it might have done much better with those folks than it would have. Otherwise, that's again, that's sort of a marginal point, but I want to get back to the big picture here, which is you talked about the large amount of money that was spent in the online portion of the Trump campaign. But when you look at the the, the research communications research on what it takes to. Swayed people of different political viewpoint eighty five million or whatever the figure might be. However, you calculate that actually is not enough money to persuade a lot of people, at least according to sort of the traditional understanding of of how the Trump campaign, though that doesn't include all of the packs. I think in total over a billion dollars was was spent from both candidates eighty. Five million is just a fraction of that. Sure. And that's a fair point are insupportable candidates I should say, right, and that's a fair point. But but I think what the authors are highlighting is that actually the mainstream media did a lot for Trump even with people who don't get their news on the internet. The proportion of people who rely on the internet as their primary source of campaign news is actually relatively small. Think a recent survey showed it was something like fifteen percent. Whereas the number who rely on TV news or cable news primarily for for election formation or campaign information is. More like fifty percents, more like a majority apologies if I don't have those numbers exact, but Trump was TV candidate. And he probably one because of his largely because of his presence on TV, and certainly the internet had an influence on it, but I just think it it puts in perspective, the the the extent to which the internet really influences voting behavior versus all the other channels that were already out there. Even before Facebook came along and changed everything. Click question of clarification. When we talk about people on the internet were talking about including mobile with that too, not just desktop connections. That's a good question. And the author clarify, so by using three different ways of measuring internet access, they tried to hedge against the fact that of course, the online population is changing all the time, and there are a lot of people on phones today, even if they don't necessarily have a laptop that that's connected to the net at home, they did try to account for that. They admit that the sample sizes are pretty small new survey. And they call for more research to be done to really understand the extent of the of the impact. But I do think is important to note that it's true that local television news is the most consumed form of news in the country. Puke came out with the study last year that's at thirty seven percent of adults. Most often get their news from local television news, cable TV news is trails beyond that and the internet trails even further beyond that, which is why I'm so concerned about Clara's I talked about in our previous show and we do need to, I think, be sure that we have a sober look at these questions about, you know, internet influence and deception and how important the internet is. I still think it's laughable that Mark Zuckerberg did say right after the election that he doesn't think Facebook really anything to do with it that that I think has been proven at least somewhat on true or at least misstatement in in many ways, but but it's it's good to keep in mind that peop. Are getting their information from other ways as well. So this is a study a reminder that the obvious the internet is changing politics and profound ways. And I don't think this should minimize that. It's just Trump's tweets are on TV. Right. Absolutely. That's another. That's another way that this is happening as as I wrote in my story for slate about this Trump tweets, and then it dominates the TV news cycle for quite a while. So that's another indirect way that the internet can influence people, but I just think it is good to keep in mind that ultimately most people are still getting their news about the campaign through TV and not by reading. You know, scrolling through dank names on read it or reading Russian propagandists on Twitter all day. In fact, Trump Trump supporters were way less likely to be on Reddit or Twitter, especially than than Clinton supporters were. And and that's remember there was that political story soon after the election that Jared Kushner had made a deal with Sinclair to air Trump interviews on interested. And so Trump was definitely working. TV circuit as well. Well, it's a great piece, and I really do encourage people to read your piece and and if they want to dig into the study, they can. But you really summit up nicely and and talk about all of the things to consider one. When looking at this information, I should say the study, the title of the study is a note on internet use and the 2016 US presidential election outcome. Again, the study was in plus one mice. Late story about the study was headlined, maybe Trump isn't the internet's fault after all. All right folks. Check it out. All right. We're gonna take a quick break. And when we come back, we'll have our interview with Justin Erlich to talk about the future of flying cars. If
