Fauci disagrees with Trump on coronavirus
"The United States has not rounded the corner that is from Dr Anthony Fauci. The Nation's top infectious disease expert delivering a blunt specifically worded rebuttal to the president to, of course, Said said the other day that the US is rounding the corner on the pandemic. I'm sorry but I have to disagree with that because if you look at the thing that you just mentioned the Statistics Andrea. The. Disturbing. Disturbing. The US Steph told you shy of two hundred, thousand number of new cases hovering around forty, thousand, a day and an influential model. At the White House sites all the time predicts the death toll will more than double by the end of the year. Four hundred thousand people dead by the end of December, and yet trump's behavior continues to scorn mask-wearing or social distancing his rally yesterday you see it three thousand supporters more than that. Actually packing an airport hangar in Michigan without masks without social distancing. And and you might say why why are they doing that? It is clear. They are following the leader the person that they are there to support. They are following the president just listen to them and then listen to the president. Care for it. It's that simple. I don't see it for myself. I am young and likable are year are not young. People are very strong. It gets this horrible disease. Temperature taken already, and I'm not saying not necessarily here. Everybody's been tested and I've been tested a hard time understanding people when they. So that's why I don't wear. You can hear me right now I can hear you you're going to have to take. You can take it off your your health how many your wet Well if you don't take it off your very muffled. Those trump supporters Jim Acosta speaking to them getting those very powerful Soundbites Jeremy Diamond is out front and Jeremy You know very strong words from Dr Voucher tonight specifically using the words rounding the corner. No, we're not right. Exact words the president used to rebut his claim. Yeah, no questionnaire in Doctor FAUCI typically tries to avoid directly contradicting the president's or directly confronting and putting himself in opposition to the president, and it tends to happen quite a bit simply by the fact that the president often downplayed the threat of this virus in Dr, Fauci is stating the facts, but it is notable to see dumpster here directly contradicting the president saying, I have to disagree with him on that and he does because ultimately Dr Foudy does rely on. The facts you relies on the science and the facts and the science show that the president by any metric you consider is wrong when he says that the United States is rounding the corner on this and of course, we started this week Erin with the revelation that the president had intentionally misled the American public about the deadliness of virus. He said that he likes to downplay it, and what's remarkable is that we are finishing this week with the president continuing to do. Exactly that because the president is saying that we around the corner, he is saying that the numbers of corona virus cases are plummeting. When in fact we know that we are at a plateau of nearly forty thousand cases nearly a thousand deaths per day and Dr found she is warning about a potentially difficult fall and winter, and of course, it's also remarkable when you see this rally that the president is holding three thousand more than three thousand people huddled together very few. Of them wearing masks and obviously it's coming from the fact that the president in his rhetoric has really downplayed those things. Yes he has acknowledged in in recent weeks. That mask wearing is important. He is called a patriotic, but he is still not modeling that public health behavior, and of course, for months on end, the president downplayed some of those significant public health safety measures and as you just showed in that video, the president's words. So often being mimicked by his own supporters. Jeremy Thank you very much earlier. We spoke to David Plyler these local Republican official in North Carolina and he spoke out this week urging president trump to wear a mask during his rally in that state the state by the way I wanna make it clear has a mask mandate. So we asked him why why does he feel the president should wear a mask and here's what he said. The president is a citizen of the United, States Nettie wants North Carolina. is asked to voluntarily do that not is a matter of health alone. But in the leaders situation, it allows the leader to be seen by people he or she represents and they generally hopefully would follow suit as an elected official. I've been asked to look out for the safety and health of our community, and that's exactly what I was doing. So. Yeah. Know that's just the reality right? That's how it should be but this has become political and plyler happens to be Republican. So he got some feedback on his comment about the president. Here's what he told us about. Well I got backlash from everybody they didn't call it say I'm a Republican or Democrat. I hadn't felt on for south. Carolina. Who taught me a cuss words? A sailor has never heard before. We also ask piler why he felt the need to speak out right? Why? Why did he do it? He could have just been quiet and just rolled his eyes and been angry about it but he didn't he spoke out and he said that mash to be worn, the president should wear one. Why do you do that? It's something we have to do. No chores. And this is not the first time that plague of this time has hit this country nor will it be the last I'm sorry to say in we've had plagued across the United States. We've had things in Europe. We've had him an England China just goes around the world I just hope we can get out of this. So. reasonable. So calm collected. I want to go now to Dr Jonathan Reiner Director of the Cardiac Cath Lab at George Washington University Hospital who else would advise the white? House. Medical team under President George. W.. Bush. So you heard Dave plyler right I mean it just just just so reasonable. So clear. And and he wants the president's followers to to wear masks wants the president to wear masks you heard them. They they they scorn it. They disdain it. It comes from the top. Do you think it's possible to pandemic would be a lot less worse if the president had from day one said where mask. I think if the president had said from day one everyone is wearing a mask. We'd have got forty five thousand deaths in this country and I say that because that's extrapolating German experience they've had a middle of the road haven't been the best. They haven't been the worst they been okay in their pandemic response. And they've had about ten thousand deaths. We have four times the population of Germany. We'd have about forty, five, thousand deaths in this country. So about one hundred, fifty, thousand people would be alive if you WANNA think about why we still have forty thousand cases day and a thousand deaths today in this country is because. We're still talking about masks. It's so basic. It just seems so nefarious now that we've heard the president. Really articulately express how dangerous this virus was on February seven. He knew the route he knew he knew how lethal the virus was. He knew that this was ACM dramatic people. He understood yet he decided not to protect the people. It was a conscious decision not to protect the people even now even today. Do you think his supporters would go and be unmasked. If they knew what he knew you think Herman Cain would have gone to Tulsa. Sit there shoulder shoulder without a mask knowing what the president knew. So so you know you Dr. Fouled. She the president said that we were rounding the corner the latest in his many salvoes sang right it's going away. But that's what you just said. Doctor felt she came out today and we're not rounding the corner, right? I mean he didn't. He didn't talk around it or generally obliquely rebutted he rebutted it using word for word because he felt it was important and then he went on to say this. When you're in the middle of a pin damage and you're trying hard to address all the appropriate issues, it is truly a waste of time. The bunk nonsense but unfortunately, we had to do that. Frustration is coming through in a way I haven't seen it before. I admire the man. So much I'm he is a brilliant scientist who's devoted his life to protecting America from all kinds of horrible pathogens. And he still added and he he he he does not get discouraged. Look. It is a waste of time for him to have to deal with some this nonsense, but it's necessary. He has to debunk we rely on him. If only the the White House brought him out to these press events and had an let the press on Moss as can questions wouldn't that be refreshing? I'm grateful for him everyday
Officials battle online misinformation along with wildfires
"Are these historically large wildfires continue to rage out west fifteen people have already died a whopping four million acres already devastated across California as well as Oregon where you can see right here why the mayor there declared a state of emergency, the governor also publicly pleading. For the trump administration to support its governmental emergency response officials on the ground, say Donald trump failing them through fashion. Some critics compare his sort of public denial of even admitting what's going on with the wildfires that posture to of course, is deceitful approach to cove it. Who reports today are the things are even worse than all of that because right wing conspiracy theories supported publicly by Donald, trump are leading to dangerous activity. Again, we're living in a time where misinformation can be dangerous to your health and officials are warning. They're getting flooded with false phone calls fanned by Q. Not which incorrectly try to blame the fires on trump's perceived opponents. Translation what happens on facebook doesn't always stay on facebook a real world emergency political propaganda is making it harder for these firefighters to get the real information warnings they need as they go out and do their work and risk their lives. That's why sheriff's departments are pleading with people with messages like this just stop spreading rumors stop calling nine one one with political pranks. They say it has now gotten to the point where it is hampering their bandwidth to respond to the fires in real emergencies. It's twenty twenty. So sometimes, we have to state the obvious around here. Do not call nine, one one with Q. Non trumpy fake news propaganda. You do have the right to say whatever you want. Typing it up on the Internet you do not have the right to deceitfully thwart firefighting in the middle of this very real crisis for those calling from the West Coast some of these calls have been traced. If you need to think about it like this. Misinformation is expensive in the house you save could be your own. As mentioned, we're thrilled to have married trump live in the hour but I want to begin with some of our analysts, Jason, Johnson professor of politics at Morgan, State University and Katty Kay Washington anchor for BBC News. Good evening to both you. Evening Jason There's much talk about misinformation and people don't like lying even when it's just verbal if you want to be that specific. But given these twin crises, your view of the cost of this kind of misinformation. Rex It's massive. I'm in California right now and the difficulty the difficulty that local officials are having in managing people when it comes to these wall fires is immense and is partially because accused on, it's partially because the president basically sort of thumbs his nose that these sorts of Issues v rate of destruction that is happening out here. Basically, the size of central park is being burned every other day in northern California Oregon Central Park. Every other day is being burned devastated. varies a haze over the sky on a regular basis at the bottom. Of A pool, you can see ash settling after every single night. So the idea that people are wasting public resources with crazy conspiracy theories because they think that the fires were created by you know five G. or invading Muslims or George Soros doesn't help the fact that there are hundreds of thousands of people were either going to be out of their homes or not able to stay safely in their homes. During the time, we have a pandemic where rescuing people in putting them into shelters is all the more difficult. So yeah, this is propaganda that's Live when trump lies people are dying. Well. Caddy at the White House has often tried to reposition the Cova conversation in the election as well. This hit everywhere. This is global thing. it seems that this week there is a rightful focus and scrutiny on the president's leadership on his honesty on his approach, which is relevant. As, you go into election about who you want to continue to deal with this crisis or do you want to change the commander in chief? Yell the the virus has hit everywhere but my fourteen year old daughter is an online schooling here in Washington. Her friend in France in class. A. Friend in London is in class her friend in China is in plus her friend in Senegal. is in class and a friend in Germany is in class they're all going to school. And the reason they're going to school is because those countries have handled this better. So that's a direct comparison and in a globalised world. Our children here in the United States make no mistake about it that losing out because those other kids are in class going to school at advancing while orchids not advancing. So we're kicking this down to the next generation as well but. We elect leaders to be able to walk and Chew Gum at the same time. It is totally possible that you can give people a facts that you can trust the American people with the facts of something it is at also be inspirational and motivational and lift them up with a plan and show leadership. Those two things are not mutually exclusive and I think that's what the president is mistaking when he says, he didn't want people to panic and so he downplayed the virus. And gatty talk about how that stacks up in a global context that I think is very interesting to remember, and then how people are receiving these messages reporter. Jim Acosta spoke. To some people going to the trump rally take a look. Our about him because there's no. It's a it's a fake pandemic created to destroy the United. States of America. The president said the Bob Woodward there is a virus but corona virus that it is devil that's his opinion. Chatty. Where do you start i? Mean you stop by asking all of our leaders to come out with consistent clear accurate honest messaging when I really felt for Anthony. FAUCI. In that interview because I've interviewed g and he is so careful not to wade into political waters where there's going to be a difference between him and the president because he said that will be the only story and he is trying to get out the public health story doesn't WANNA make it a political story about. A disagreement he clearly feels now he has to set a Mauka. He has to wait into the politics of this and say, no when the President says, we are turning a corner. We're not actually turney. We're in this for the long haul because when the president says, we're turning a corner when he says, we're about to get over this or that is magically going to disappear what happens that guy doesn't wear a mosque when he attends a rally because he thinks it's not there. That's the risk. Door Jason. Trump can say you know he can see the light at the end of the tunnel. All we once it's a train right it's a train coming at us. We are about to head to fall which is flu season. This is a time where you have kids going back to school but you have people who have to shelter in place more because it's cold you can't eat outside and that makes us Much more difficult and I think are the real danger here is that as we recognize that the president is grotesquely incompetent, right easies driven by sort of racial malice and paying off his friends and everything else like that. At the base of all of this, we cannot forget to key things. One that the president is still trying to steal the election with the post office that you still have. Right. Wing Supreme. Courts in Wisconsin right now that are trying to people get absentee ballots. It's you have the president, the Republican Party suing in Iowa to prevent people from getting their absentee ballots that he's still trying to steal the election at the same time that you have literally millions of. Americans. Now, out of work who be out of their homes who are being evicted, which will make it more difficult for them to. Actually vote. So as much as the president is, is a horrible human being and trying to bankrupt this country and pay off his friends and stay in office. He is also doing things isn't competence has disrupted the ability of regular people remove him from office in a democratic way. We can't ever lose sight that because we can't get rid of him everything that's happening. Now we'll be ten times worse by nature.

Trump Vows to Issue Executive Orders if Coronavirus Relief Talks Collapse
"Breaking news on the economic front the White House and Democrats say talks of the economic stimulus package they have hit a wall president trump is threatening to take executive action on his own. Let's get details on that from our chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta. Americans they are in desperate economic pain right now but stimulus talks seem to be going nowhere right now what's the latest? Well, that's right. Wolf with negotiations falling apart over Corona Virus Relief Bill White House officials say president trump is now expected to take some kind of executive action to provide financial support to Americans who are struggling to find work during this pandemic the executive orders are likely to include some kind of effort to provide enhanced unemployment benefits as well as some kind of. Action on suspending evictions from rental homes. There may be some other proposals in the mix, and in the meantime, we should point out the president just hinted at the path ahead in the last hour tweeting, we're going a different way that tweet coming from the president in just the last hour, and in the meantime administration officials are throwing cold water on the president's gold having corona virus vaccine ready by election day one senior administration official told me earlier today that timeline is highly unlikely. President trump's claim that a corona virus vaccine could be ready by election day is receiving an injection of reality as top administration health officials are saying, don't bet on it. Then November third. Oh I. Think I think in some cases. Yes. Possible before. But right around that time, a senior administration official told CNN that timeline is just not realistic saying it's quote metaphysically possible but highly unlikely and Corona Virus Taskforce Dr Anthony Fauci said. May Have to wait until November or December just to find out of a vaccine really works adding maybe we'll get an answer as early as October but I doubt it trying to put a finer prediction on the timetable right now I don't think any of us have enough information yet to know how that's going to shake out. The pandemic Bennett economy recovered somewhat in July with the unemployment rate falling to just above ten percent with one point eight million jobs added even with so many Americans still out of work congressional Democrats and White House officials have been at odds all week over Corona Virus Relief Bill with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, pointing the finger at top aides to the president. Now, that's been in the White House when the president's land that table and walked out that's really what Mr. Meadows. Did I on the table can't shoot staff Mark Meadows Jabbing right back I think for those that are suffering they. They should be asking the Democrats in the House and the Senate why why have you failed to meet the needs that we have so rightly expressed without a deal the White House is signaling Mr Trump will take executive action that legal drafting is complete. We've had this intense discussions about this. In the last several days, I don't WanNa make predictions. Democrats are also keeping an eye on election day accusing the administration of making changes to the nation's postal system that could slow down mayland balloting in a letter, the Postal Service Inspector General, a group of Democratic senators wrote the changes appear to pose a potential threat to mail in ballots and the twenty twenty general election President Likes Mail in voting in Florida but not another states like Nevada Florida's got a great Republican governor and it had a great Republican. Got Run to scientists Rick Scott, the president is seizing on comments made by Joe Biden, you seem to say African Americans are less diverse and their political views Latino voters unlike the African American community notable exceptions. The Latino community is incredibly diverse community. With, incredibly different attitudes about different things Biden try to clean that up tweeting in no way. Did I mean to suggest the African American community is a monolith not by identity not on issues not at all Mr Trump, tweeted biden is no longer worthy of the black vote I don't know what's going on with them, but it was very insulting. The president's attack on Biden are tricky for Mr Trump, who has a long track record of racially offensive behavior including sharing this video, featuring a supporter shouting white power. Now the US intelligence community issued a startling statement on election security today as the US closing in on the fall campaign. In that statement intelligence officials warn Russia is trying to damage from where Vice President Joe Biden. His chances to win the white. House the statement also from the intelligence community says, she prefers that president trump fail in his bid for a second term. These warnings from intelligence officials come at a critical time for American voters who were largely unaware that. The Russians were interfering with the election for years ago this time the voters know all too. Well, what could

Newsom orders California to shut down indoor activities, all bar operations
"And for Rebecca Corral with covert 19. Running rampant in California Governor Newsome is dialing back statewide, shutting down sectors of the economy that had been allowed to reopen. Hey, CBS Political reporter dug. Sovereign is joining us live and says that includes all bars, all indoor dining in many counties. The closures extend far beyond that, and I was watching a tweet this out as the governor was making the announcement, Doug and it feels like we're going back to the starting line. Almost Boy, it sure does Dan and it's pretty frustrating to a lot of people. I mean the corona viruses unchecked in the Golden State, the hospitalization and I see you numbers continue to move in the wrong direction. The positivity rate is approaching 8%. And Governor Gavin Newsom said today it is time to pull back and no longer just on a county by county basis. We are announcing additional statewide actions as it relates to our state home order here in the state of California. We are now effectively rather effective today required all counties to close their indoor act activities there indoor operations in every county, not just the 31 or so now on the state watch list. All bars must close gnome or indoor dining, movie theaters, family entertainment centers or winery tasting rooms and in those counties where the things are worst, covering more than 80% of California's people. There are further shutdowns, houses of worship, Hera nail salons, gyms and fitness centers. Malls. Non essential offices must all closed down again in the Bay Area. That list includes Alameda Contra Acosta Marin. Napa, Santa Clara Solano in Sonoma County. So in other words everywhere in the Bay Area except San Francisco and San Mateo counties, I pressed the Governor Dan about the confusion regarding restaurants in Alameda County over the last few days, and the general level of frustration among so many people about what's open and what isn't what's safe and what isn't. He acknowledged His responsibility is leader of the state. But he said too many people are just not acting with common sense. We all need to wear masks and keep a safe distance went outside reporting live Doug Sovereign, KCBS dog real quick. Also, did he mention anything about schools because classes were supposed to start in about a month. Is he going to step in on that? Or is he going to leave that to local communities? Well again a little bit of confusion there because it's some of both. He was asked a couple of times about the schools and again, as you said. No different districts are handling it differently. Some are shutting down completely doing everything remotely. Others are doing hybrids. He suggested that there's further guidance coming from the state, although he leaves it to local districts to make decisions. He congratulated Los Angeles, for example, on deciding tohave all remote schools. This fall, he said. There's some more guidance coming in the next few days from from the state regarding mask wearing at school's school buses, sports certain safety measures that will have to be taken if schools do want to reopen in person in part, or even more than in part in some district. So while he's still saying it's it's a district by district decision, the state is going to put some new mandates in place, so that's districts that do allow in person education this fall. We're going to have some stricter rules to follow. All right. Thanks very much. KCBS is Doug sovereign. You can follow him on Twitter to today with the latest at sovereign nation. Meanwhile, in
Fauci Says US Death Toll Is Likely Higher
"The Corona Virus death-toll here in the United States is down more than eighty. Three thousand people almost one point four million cases. Globally there are no more than four point three million cases and almost three hundred thousand deaths but tonight sources telling CNN that the trump administration that serious senior trump administration officials are questioning the accuracy of the death toll and whether the number is actually being inflated just yesterday on the other hand Dr Anthony Fauci told US lawmakers. The death toll is almost certainly higher higher. What's being reported but this coming Sunday almost all U s states will be reopened at least to some extent at the same time. Washington D. C. is among jurisdictions extending. Stay at home. Orders and states including South Dakota Delaware and Arkansas are serious are seeing serious corona virus cases right now on the rise us go straight to the White House right now. Our chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta. Joining US JIM. A grim new death toll and frightening new projections but the president and his team at least some members of his team don't necessarily believe all the numbers that's right well. The tug of war has begun inside the trump administration over whether the US is over counting the number of dead from the corona virus. Well aware that the president's reelection prospects are tied to his handling of the pandemic pro trump forces are attacking. Dr Anthony Fauci. Who has advocated caution in confronting the virus in control of the corona virus? Message coming from the White House. President trump is giving the administration pat on the back for the US response to the pandemic with the enormous weight of the pandemic hanging over the White House. Sources Tell C. N. Administration officials are questioning the accuracy of the corona virus death toll in the US and whether the number of dead is being over counted but that would fly in the face of testimony from top administration health expert. Dr Anthony Found. She who said deaths are likely being undercounted as some residents and hard hit New York died at home and we're never counted as cove in one thousand nine fatalities so direct. Answer to your question. I think you are correct at the number is likely higher. I don't know exactly. What was that tire? But almost certainly is higher. The president suggested. New York's number of dead was too high last month. I see this morning. Where New York edit three thousand deaths because they died and then now saying rather than it was a heart attack? They're saying it was a heart attack caused by this trump allies on Fox News zeroed in on found she. As an obstacle to reopening the country blasting the doctors cautious approach to the pandemic. Is this the Guy? You want to Chore Chart The Future Of the country. Maybe not this is a very serious matter. The decisions were making right now twenty. She has not been elected to anything to be very blonde. Is the face of this failed administrative leave a question? The entire premise of this with the chief. Buffoon of the professional has Dr Anthony. Fauci also seems to favor with the Democrats want and that is massive restrictions with no end in sight with all due respect to DR FAO cheese expertise. No-one elected him to anything. But there's one big problem for the White House a CNN poll found a solid majority of Americans trust Not The president when it comes to the pandemic

M. S. N. B. C. C. N. B. C. everywhere he's been everywhere is I don't know why does a steady place because everywhere he tweeted about trump's pressure from last night this is the most effective job of communicating president trump is done during the crisis the most effective job that briefing last night because trump was scared because trump finally gets it because trump finally realizes he can't do anything about this because trump finally realizes that he is vulnerable trump realizes he can't beat trump and fix this the question though is why did the media behave better they did the media last night at least not the usual provocateur is more respect I could I was watching I said that can't be Jim Acosta Acosta was asking respectful actual reasonable and responsible questions I couldn't and he was not snarky and and disagreeing with me for the most part when trump would answer and trump was not calling them fake news what the hell is going on that just curious I don't have any I wasn't alarmed by and I was just curious what's going on here yeah I find out these guys today thank god it's because trump is scared trump finally realizes he's powerless trump realizes that there's nothing you can do trump realizes that all the bluster and all the pseudo confidence in going to matter a hill of beans trump doesn't know what's coming next that makes trump's repeal and now trump's a real guy now trumps trump's vulnerable trumps trump gettable they think trump is scared that means they think this has defeated trump is there anything trump has succumbed to the over all whatever this is that he no longer feels larger van corona virus or the issue or the effort to get the country passed and this excites them this makes them feel equal this makes them feel like they can get trump
"acosta" Discussed on GONE
"This. Same Temper- leads us to our final theory. A Costa's death was an assassination. A Costa was known as a troublemaker and rabble rouser. He was a political leftist in a time. When fears of communism were still widespread law enforcement routinely kept tabs on him and would even show up at his door looking for him. In addition to offering legal services to fellow Chicanos. In the late sixties a Costa had become one of the leaders in the fight for equal rights. He marched with protesters and gave speeches at rallies. He successfully argued that Los Angeles County had systematically discriminated against people with Spanish last names in an effort to keep them off grand juries in nineteen sixty nine he defended a group called the biltmore six. These were Chicano activists with the Brown berets. A group that organized protests and fought to bring attention to Chicano Civil Rights on April twenty fourth of that year. The group protested speech by California Governor Ronald Reagan at the Biltmore Hotel in Los Angeles. Several fires were set during the protests. The biltmore six were accused of arson but Costa argued that the fires had actually been started by an undercover police officer who had framed the group. His arguments worked in court and the defendants were acquitted but blaming an undercover cop hadn't won him any friends in law enforcement and as a Costa gained more experience working on the front lines. His perspectives became even more radical in nineteen seventy. He embarked on a controversial campaign for Sheriff of Los Angeles County. He didn't expect to win but he hoped his candidacy would bring attention to that you. Connor rights movement. His primary stands was intentionally provocative he planned to disband the sheriff's department and rebuild it from the ground up. He stated the police are the violent arm of the rich. And I want to get rid of them. Though he ultimately lost the race he came in second among four candidates and his campaign highlighted the abuses of the sheriff's department but this made him an even bigger target if law enforcement hadn't liked him before his political campaign. They hated him now. It didn't take long before they found a reason to arrest him. Accustomed was caught with drugs. In an undercover sting in Hollywood and arrested in June nineteen seventy-one though he was only fined for the infraction. It played a significant role in his decision to leave. La and embark on a full time writing career. A Costa was also known to support the Chicano ideology of the nation of ASTA. Lan Asta Lan was the traditional name. For the homeland of the ancient Aztecs. Chicano idealist advocated for secession from the United States to form. A Nation of Chicanos. Ruled by Chicanos. At the end of his book autobiography of a Brown Buffalo. A Costa spoke of this dream ending with a sort of call to arms. He wrote when I have one million Brown Buffalo's on my side. I will present the demands for a new nation to both the US government and the United Nations the FBI had opened a file on acoustic in nineteen seventy when he ran for sheriff informants within the Chicano Movement had passed on information about a coastas whereabouts and actions but the file was closed in December nineteen seventy-three not long before coastas disappearance. Could that have been because they decided to silence him? Once and for all federal agents may have killed a Costa and then disposed of his body by doing so they got rid of a nuisance who according to his F. B. I. File had been involved in civil disturbances and anti-american Demonstrations. He was a potential revolutionary. And he needed to be silenced. A Costa sister. Anita advocated this theory. She stated they used to come knocking at my door. When Oscar was living with me they wanted to get rid of him they wanted him to disappear so did Oscar. A coastas dream of new nation. Cost him his life. Well it's interesting that the FBI closed its file on a Costa just before his death. It probably wasn't because they decided to assassinate him. It was because he was no longer believed to be involved in revolutionary activities. That's understandable since he quit his high profile legal career two years earlier. Furthermore a Costa doesn't seem to have been threatening enough to justify a political hit while he was one of the prominent faces of the movement. There were others. Who outshined him in both notoriety and controversy? Why were they permitted to live when a Costa had to be killed instead? We think it's most likely that. Costa died in a drug related disagreement. A family friend confirmed that he was involved with traffickers and his family had plenty of reason to believe it his comment to Marco about a boat full of white snow may very well have been referring to a shipment of cocaine bound for the border town of Mexicali a coastas temper and brash personality where well-known trademarks he was combative and fearless and his drug use enhanced his sense of his own importance. It's not difficult to imagine him. Saying the wrong thing to the wrong person and paying for it with his life the drug dealers who killed him would have had plenty of motive and the means to hide a customer's body. Even Marco Costa believes that this is how his father died. He said the people he was involved with. We think he ended up mouthing off getting into a fight and getting killed..
Trump says Roger Stone has 'very good chance of exoneration' hours after sentencing
"Get some more and larger stones set and see our senior justice. Evan Perez is here our crime and justice. Chiba Polka. Pez is also working the story for Evan. You're inside the courtroom when you heard Judge Amy. Berman Jackson read out her decision. It was a dramatic moment. It was it was over an hour where she was essentially going through methodically. The aspects of this case including some of the arguments made by Roger Stone by the president and some of his allies that Roger Stone was being targeted for some For for his First Amendment right to stand up for president trump that he was essentially being targeted for being a political trickster. She says none of those things are true. I'll read you just a part of her remarks during the sentencing. Today she says quote stone wasn't obstructing not some secret anti-trump Cabal but he lied to Congress. You'll remember that. He was convicted of lying to Congress during testimony to the House. A House of Representatives as well as witness tampering threatening one of the witnesses in this in this case and so she took all of this on. She talked a little bit about some of his Some of his emails some of the threats that he made to Randy critical one of his associates And during that time well if we were all watching Roger Stone and he and he behaved himself mostly in court but during that time as she read some of his obscene emails. You can see him turnaround smirk and look at their two rows of his followers inside the courtroom today She also took to con the issue of of the politics. That are play in this case. she says quote he was Roger. Stone says he was not prosecuted as some have claimed for standing up for the president he was prosecuted for covering up for the president. One of the things we were watching today to wolf was the prosecution. John Crabs stood up today and essentially walked back to the original sentencing memo the recommendation that was made for seventy two seven seven to nine years From the prosecution team which resigned which quit the case in the middle of controversy over over President Trump's interference in his and the prosecutors the prosecutors stood up and he said he apologized for all the drama that happened in the past week wolf and he said that the original sentencing memo was essentially submitted. In good faith it was exactly according to Justice Department policy and it was within the guidelines that are established is interesting because we know the president. He clearly tried to influence the outcome of this trial from the very beginning. And the judge Amy Berman Jackson. She addressed that specifically. She did and it's not just the outcome of this trial. Let's the entire the entire Muller investigation where you see. The president has has inserted himself tweeting. It's talking about it at campaign rallies publicly talking about and the judge really today. That's what some of this was about. She wanted to address some of the influence and also the attempted influence and also the prosecutors who now have taken over this case day to said that the Department of Justice is. There's no political interference you know we're here to be fair and the judges continued. I mean we saw her going. After Roger Stone we saw her in some ways going after the president and then taking on the whole the political drama surrounding this case and what she said and this judge docs and she said the dismay and disgust at any attempt to interfere with the efforts of prosecutors and members of the JUDICIARY TO FULFIL. Their duty should transcend. Party this is a big moment in the sentencing. This was the overall I should say theme. I felt throughout her sensing proceeding was a larger message. Here because judiciary is under attack and this was a moment in time for the judge to defend the judiciary defend other judges and defend the system. Which is really under attack right continues to be under attack by the president. Today he railed against what's going on in the problem. Pardon you certainly. Did our guys stick around Evan and Shimon reporting for now. Let's go to the White House. Our chief White House correspondent Jim. Acosta is also working the story for a strip. The president was quick to speak out about Roger Stone's sentencing. That's right well. The president responded to speculation that he is about to pardon Roger Stone. The president suggested he will wait and see how the appeals process plays out for his former advisor saying he hopes stone is exonerated and while the president didn't offer stone at immediate. Pardon he didn't exactly close the door on that possibility either. President trump threw his support behind his convicted former adviser. Roger Stone but stopped short of offering a pardon to the dirty trickster just hours after he was sentenced in federal court. I'm not GONNA do anything. In terms of the great powers bestowed upon a president of the United States. I want the process to play out. I think that's the best thing to do. Because I'd love to see Roger Exonerated and I'd love to see it happen because I personally think. He was treated very unfairly and an event honoring rehabilitated prisoners. In Las Vegas. The president ripped into the jury forewoman at the stone trial accusing her of being an anti-trump activist that was in response to her facebook. Post defending the prosecutors in the stone case so if this woman was tainted I hope the judge will find that you was tainted. And if she isn't tainted that will be fine to now. You would know about a bad jury. Anybody here know about that now. The president question. How could be sentenced to forty months in prison in part for lying to Congress but MR trump unleashed a flat out falsehood of his own when he said stone was not involved with this campaign in Twenty fifteen? The trump campaign said it fired stone. Roger was never involved in the trump campaign for president. He wasn't involved early on long before he announced he may have done a little consulting work or something but he was not involved when I ran for president. And he's a person who again he knows. A lot of people having to do with politics. Stone is now part of a growing group of trump associates sentenced or awaiting prison sentences. Democrats worried the president is floating the idea of parts to try to keep those associates quiet while I think that he's dangled the pardon Often with Mrs with regard to Mr Stone and Mr Flynn in part to In my opinion to signal to them that if they stay on the team that they don't reveal further information that they might possess about the president that they'll be taken care of the judge overseeing stones trial took a jab at Mr Trump at one point sang at the former trump campaign adviser sentencing that he was prosecuted for covering up for the president. Mr Trump had been teasing the possibility of a stone. Pardon tweeting video of Fox host calling for leniency. The whole thing is enough to shake your faith in our justice system. Unfortunately president trump could end this tragedy travesty in an instant with pardon and there are indications tonight that he will do that. Trump allies are also reminding the president he has the power to pardon stone with GOP. Senator Lindsey Graham tweeting under our system of justice. President trump has all the legal authority in the world to review this case and terms of commuting the sentence or partying Mr Stone for the underlying offense as the attacks on the four women in the stone. Trial a fellow juror. In the case said the president and the Attorney General are doing damage to the Justice System. Big Cast doubt on the the bedrock of the equal administration of Justice. That is just so so important to our country I think he damages our democracy by attacking this way and I wish he would stop now as for a pardon for Roger. Stone trump

Mr Trump did not respond to parnassus claim that multiple officials in the administration knew about the alleged pressure campaign for information on Joe Biden telling CNN at one point to be quiet so when he says Mulvaney knew about the bold new about this quiet you just have to take a look at the pictures you just have to take a look at the polls. You see anybody's help. I don't need the help of a demand that I never met before I welcome him to say that even more every time. He says they'll show them another picture.

"It's one case to say in Nineteen ninety-one when there are five hundred murders in the Brooklyn South precinct that you need a gun for protection now that there are fifty something murders and I just looked up these stats. What's you don't need a gun for protection? If you didn't have the gun he wouldn't have been shot. I mean there's comes a certain point where that becomes a less sympathetic argument. I think New York City's at that point so try and get shot first of all he got arrested almost certainly illegal. I know but like thinking that you need the gun for protect yeah but like you're taking these like nice rational statistics in your imagining that if that is the world as terrarium sees it and that's just not true like he lives in a much more specific universe in which there are the people who he felt threatened by. There's lots of evidence of this in the podcast. He talks about it a lot and explains why he felt like you needed to be protected in fact a few days before he got arrested for having a gun someone ahead like Rasta sister at a party. Those people were threatening him. I'm on social media and actually came to his house so the kind of abstraction of the lower homicide and shooting rate in New York those things are some kind of factor in people's minds but your own specific universe can be telling you something different from this larger picture rate right. Is that specific or is that subjective. It's subjective objectively. It's extremely unlikely that you're going to need a gun if the if he was living in London he might say well any protection and it's a knife and it would be much better for society well yeah but I feel like we're having this conversation as if like everybody's irrational actor and has like a total grasp on all of that so first of all in poor neighborhoods in Brooklyn the threat of shooting if you're a young black guy is much higher than it is overall but even absent that at people's perceptions of being threatened can be out of date right they can be like based on all the ideas they grew up with they can be based on what they see. In the movies based on the image they want to project that kind of subjective understanding of your life like you know looking at it as blake a white middle-class person from the outside. It's just like a different view things even if it's wrong I mean look drives decision to get a gun is misguided it lands him in a lot of trouble and you know one of the other characters in my podcast talks about like this idea of guns protecting you well when he had gone him he got shot like it doesn't even work in the moment of self defense the way people wanted to so I'm not I'm not defending the notion that guns protect people. I think that's wrong. I'm just saying that I think it's important understand stand where kids are coming from and to try to like think about what could change their world view as as opposed to just dismissing it but the way to convince a kid like terrarium that he doesn't need a gun is not to point at a stat is to change his lived experience the same kid in Chicago Kogo. I might not agree with but understand more once it becomes less and less objectively true that you're likely to get shot then it becomes less and less likely that kid is going to think he has a gun and my point point. Is that the thing that affects objective truth. Are things like programs that essentially say if you have a gun. You're doing some jail time. Look I feel like now are looping back to where we were before. I just disagree with you like that and threat of deterrence turns it when you talk to the kids who are arrested for gun possession in New York. They don't give a shit about that. That's not what they're thinking about it. They set one of them said to me like I'd rather go to prison for a couple of years. Then then be dead like they do see that that is a real threat. There are neighborhoods in Brooklyn and in New York even that remained dangerous or they've grown up with that memory of danger. It feels present to them. You know you can try to talk people out of it. You can give them other options. There are lots of ways to try to work with kids is to make them understand that they are making bad choices. There's a bigger better world out there for them but the idea that threatening them with prison that that's the thing that is going to convince them not to have a gun. I just don't think so we have lots of evidence that that is does not affect their mindset in the moment. These are rash teenagers right. We're talking about people whose brains are not fully developed like young rash boys and men. They're not as rational as you're being right now. We'll kids should yeah I mean and this is one of your bullet points. Oh terrible terrible Fred Fred's this is one of your action items wanted. Kids should be treated as kids charged is the name of the book. It's also the name of the slate podcast and the name of the woman behind both of these is emily basil on thank you emily.

"Could we just roll Jim Acosta in the middle of the day in mcallen, Texas with his sunglasses on at the border fence, and what he discovered, and here's some of the steel slaps at the president's been talking about right here as you can see. Yes, you can't see through these lots to the other side of the US beco- border. But as we're walking along here, we're not seeing any kind of imminent danger. There are no migrants trying to rush toward this fence here in the mcallen, Texas area. Matter of fact, there's some other businesses behind me along this highway. There's a gas station Burger King and so on, but no sign of the national emergency that the president has been talking about as a matter of fact, it's pretty tranquil down here. Yeah. You know, where it's not in the San Diego area. This guy is crazy. First of all is this the worst system worst reporting ever versatile. I've just picked random space, and I'm going there. And by the way, the thing I'm against the wall is right here. So you could see through it. So it's more of a fence, which I might people are more for offense than a wall. But let me just show you it's completely effective. But instead I'm going to spin this as nobody's ear. There is no -mergency. Yes. Because the friggin wall is right there. Also, it might have something to do with your wearing sunglasses usually people are coming in the cover of darkness. Where was he when I went down to gallon Texas with our border patrol in the middle of the night. Do you remember do did you come with did not go with you? But I do we have danger to it. So you and I met and they still haven't gotten. You're right. Went down there. I watched the boats come over in the middle of the night. I watched the people come over in droves, mcallen, Texas is kind of a hot spot, but not in the middle of the day, not wear the border fences. Instead where there is no fence, Jim what a complete and utter dope. And everyone at CNN. Shame on you. Shame on would have stepped in earlier, but I will never stop Jim Acosta rats. Medico until it's over. I mean think about it ever. You're not a news guy. Right. No, news guy. Let's say you're in charge of CNN, and this dope comes on your screen. And you're watching it in the office, and your even your even against the border wall. Okay. You're against it. Let's say you're you're crazy against it. But you got a business to run you pick up the phone at Jim Acosta. Kutina, Mr. Heaton. Jim Acosta Jim Acosta's on the online to pick it up. And what do you say? I would say Jim we've got a hot story for you. It's logical fallacies. I, you know, I don't think that a across the border Boorda walls, a good use of funds. So I don't think this is a good that said though, the logical holes in it are much bigger than the current border wall. You know? And there's parts where it's mountainous. You're not gonna put a fence or a wall there, and there's like like again from from a from a safety issue if he were to focus on the math side of this. I'd I'd be with him on it where most of the drugs that are coming in. They're coming through legal ports. They're not coming from cross the border. Most of the forty percent of the people overstaying their visa, they're already here that said, though, if you pick a random spot of wall and go, look, it's peaceful. There's I don't know math that well, but it's like more than eighty feet like you could pick and choose wherever you want it to be into a cancer ward and gone. I've just I've just found this woman. She's cancer free. Every talking about cancer. She has cancer nurse team. I think Jim Acosta was aware of this controversy because his next report. Hold on. Yes. Layer before he posted after this happened. And he gets I'm getting beat up online. Everyone writing stories mocking him. I mean, he paid attention to. I think thing, oh, whatever. Jim Acosta's always paying attention to what people are saying about Jim Mukasa. That is the number one goal of Jim Mukasa every day. I'm going to I'm going to tonight. I have to post some Jim Acosta reports I'm going to do some Jim Acosta reports on Facebook. I can't take like that. But he he did his next report..

"This was an actual, you know, it happened a few days ago, and they're hundreds of miles away their hundreds and hundreds of that. That's not invasion who could ever have guessed. How could Jim look at me. I'm Jim Acosta have ever guessed that people hundreds of miles away moving in our direction would eventually reach our border. I mean, hundreds of miles away. That's like an eternity. They've just keep walking for forever. I mean, it was it was stupid on its face. Trump was entirely entirely in the right. And then the people charged the border. You can't just let them come in. And so the and they were throwing things at our border agents. As Trump said, they would Trump said, look, they did it in Mexico. What makes you think they're not going to do it? Here those pictures that Jim look at me. I'm Jim Acosta were that he was referring to those pictures pictures of them storming fences in Mexico. So Trump was absolutely right to say they were going to do that here as well. Why not why wouldn't they do the exact same thing? Totally in the right. And of course, now the networks play the gassing oats gassing of children. Oh, my the stuff on Twitter yesterday. Unbelievable, this inhuman beast this. And he is gassing children is gassing children. Here's the way the network played. It the images of the tear gas used at the US Mexico border seen across the country and the world thousands of migrants. From that caravan have now arrived into wanna some of them breaking through Mexican security US border patrol than firing tear gas at them this mother and her children among those caught indicate offs tonight. President Trump was asked about the tear gas. We met sixteen year old Henry covered those bandages and one of the things that he says is that. He's not going to stop. He wants to still get into the United States, and he's not going to quit now. Just because he was going to the glances forced to Thonis to close. The sandy seizure of port of entry one of the busiest on the planet for nearly seven hours thousands of people most there legally stranded at the border. Officers are trying to keep the peace after hundreds of mush the US Mexico border yesterday started as a peaceful March turned into chaos US, authorities fired tear gas at mostly adult males. But some of it women and children including Maria Mesa her escape captured in this dramatic photo. We caught up with her today. When I see that photo. I just want to cry. She says claiming that she wasn't crossing the border illegally, but trying to reach it to apply for asylum. So I told you that photo, right? It's going to win the Pulitzer. I told you it was a big big deal that picture it reminded me of the napalm girl. I don't know if you remember of seen the picture in one thousand nine sixty three in Vietnam the Southie. Aetna AMIS who are allies accidentally mistook a village for a force of Viet Cong, and they napalm them in this little girl came running naked out of the village screaming and that became an iconic picture, Richard Nixon at one point wondered was posed. I mean, people have been wondering about this picture was it pose it doesn't matter. It doesn't matter. You know, as as boss tweed when said about the cartoons that brought help bring down his administration people don't read, but they can look at the pictures, and that's what they're depending on here. And of course, you know. Not only not only are. Well, let let's start with tear-gas. Let's start with this. The Washington Times has reported that the same tear gas agent that the Trump administration is taking heat for deployment against a border mob. This weekend is actually used fairly frequently including more than once a month during the leader years of President Obama's administration, according to homeland security data US customs and border protection has used the what's called CS since two thousand ten and deployed twenty six times in fiscal twenty twelve and twenty seven times in two thousand thirteen the use dropped after that. But was still deployed three times in two thousand sixteen Mr. Obama's final full year in office UCS rose again and fiscal 2017, which was split between Obama and Trump. So it's something they do. So they don't have to kill people..

"They don't put in the valves when he wanted to. Here's the thing. Here's the thing. Jim Kosta is a third return list and a clown. But I'd rather live in a country when we step back a little bit. We'll step back a little bit from disliking him. Personally. I would rather live in a country in which the occasional knucklehead can give the top man a headache from time to time and country in which that can't happen. So even though I don't think the first amendment or the fifth amendment decrees that Jim Acosta needs to get his press pass back. I do believe it is. Generally, a good thing that the press can annoy the president of the United States. The reason the press is suffering. The the Donald Trump backlash. That it suffering is because they didn't do their job for eight years. That is why if they treated Barack Obama like this, and they had this. They have this delusional sense that they once asked Barack Obama hard questioned with something like what time is it or something, you know, what what chance you most about the presidency. They have this delusional idea that they covered Obama. They didn't cover Obama. They covered up for Obama for eight years that scandal-free administration that included scandal after scandal the IRS scandal the fast and furious scandal one scandal after another the scandal of the Iran deal the scandal of dumping cash into the pockets of the Iranians for nothing for no reasons because they're going to get their nuclear weapon. Anyway, all of those scandals were left uncovered they covered him up instead. And that's what they're paying for now. And that's why Donald Trump gets away with the stuff he does because otherwise even I would attack them. I don't wanna see the president of the United States throwing reporters out even a bad reporter even. Bad reporter like Jim Acosta, who's just grandstand. Or throwing his opinion at the president. I want those guys they are the problem is you cannot show up after eight years and put on your reporter pants again and say, suddenly, we're reporters. So this is the problem that I have with this idea that we stand in solidarity. There was an exchange. Chris Wallace had Trump on. And I thought Trump said a couple of things that I would question but not on this subject, but but they had an exchange Chris Wallace and Trump had this back and forth exchange in which Wallace kind of did this whole thing that the press stands in solidarity. Let's let's play this clip. This is number seven. I'm saying fake news false reporting dishonest reporting of which there is a lot. And I know see I know it because I'm a subject of a lot of people don't know. But when I explain it to them, they understand, and because you know, that better you don't have to sit here and act like a perfectly wonderful innocent angel. I know you too. Well, I knew you father to well. That's not your, gene. But let me. Tell you look I and some of the coverage of user, and I've set it on the record is biased. But I don't think that they are despised. But I, but the idea that you call us the enemy of the people calling you that I'm talking I'm not altogether. I don't understand it. We're all together. No, no. I'm not calling you. I. All and the New York Times calling. We're in solidarity. Curling fake news fake reporting is what's tearing this country apart because people know people like things that are happening. And then not hearing about it. Now. Trump is absolutely right about this. He's right twice immense fake reporting. When you have ninety four to between ninety four ninety six percent of the coverage of Trump has been negative when the economy so good when ISIS has gone on the judges a good when the regulations cut back and businesses thriving all of that that that's covered ninety six percent negative. He is absolutely right. And the problem is that the problem with Wallace's point of view is that it is. It is the opposite problem we have with Democrats that we want clowns like Jim Acosta to be able to annoy the president I want that to happen. My gripe is that it didn't happen for eight years. That's my real gripe. Not the way they treat Trump. It's the way they treated Obama and the way they treated Trump, but but the solidarity of. Press is masking a genuine genuine dysfunction in the press..

"The big questions. Like, how do you spell? Cliven. It's K L A V A N. So I have to talk about Jim look at me. I'm Jim Acosta because I know that that's what he wants. When somebody want something that badly to be talked about looked at that badly. You gotta do it. You just gotta give it up for. Now. You what what happened basically since since I've been here is that he was a federal judge gave him back. His press pass is hard pass to the White House was taken away without the art Passi would've had to apply every day for past the White House. And of course, would give them a pass to anything. So that would have been a problem so CNN sued which was absurd and the judge temporarily he issued an injunction saying he his fifth is article five right to due process was violated because there was no hearing, and there were no rules and his first amendment rights were. I'm sorry fifth amendment. And I met rights were violated by taking away. Now this I'm not a lawyer. But this seems to me completely absurd. I mean, Donald Trump doesn't it doesn't seem like the president even has to give a press conference. Let alone give a hard pass to any one particular reporter. But that's what the judge said. And now, they'll work it out. Now, I just wanted to go back. The thing for me about this has been the reaction of the press the press stood in solidarity with the cost even though sources say that many people just hate the guy. He's a show boater. He's a second east really a second rate clown. I mean, he is just ridiculous. The question that he asks at the time you remember was when he said you called the caravan an invasion, but it's not an invasion, which is like who cares? What you think accosted Trump wonderfully said, we have a difference of opinion. So obviously, this is a guy who thinks his opinion matters his his job is to put his opinion next to the president of the United States. And somehow that's pointing out that Trump as a different opinion. I'm not sure. What the hell he's doing? But the most important things he wants people to look at him after he won the temporary injunction got his art passback. He shows up wonderful piece of videos, he shows up and begs the press to interview when asked a question, I could just tell you. I. I I just want to say that I'm very grateful for what happened today and grateful my colleagues in the press who stood by roll this this this was a test. And you know, I think we'd pass the test. So so I love that. You guys wanna ask me question? Could you ask you, please please as a question and look at me look at me up. And of course, we have to add in here that, you know, in the in the court case, the Trump lawyers came in and kinda tried to steamroll the judge a little bit. They said, you know, we can ban. Anybody we want which probably got the judges backup. It probably was not the best argument. They could've made they should have gone in. And just said, hey, he was disruptive. He wasn't following the rules. And he obviously was when the young intern came and tried to take Mike away. He strangled her to death screaming at me. I'm Jim Acosta or it wasn't that bad. But it was still pretty bad. And you've made a big fuss about everything, and the whole thing was useless. The thing is the thing is about a cost of the we have to step back for just a minute. Jim Acosta is the news media. Jim Acosta is the news media. Here's what I mean. This incident happened right after Donald Trump came out after the midterm election and made some pretty bipartisan noises. I mean, they were Trumpian bipartisan noises they came along with some belligerence. He said if you start investigating me, I'm gonna investigate you will be at war. But his main the main thrust of the speech, he made was okay now, the Democrats have the house. Let them make some laws, and let us do some deals and do some trading which is what conservatives like me worried about with Trump all along that he would drift to the left if ever the left started dealing dealing with them..

"And Jim Acosta. Have hired a couple of top gun lawyers. We'll filed one of the most pathetic lawsuits have ever rent. This is not a freedom of the press case. CNN has reporters at the White House CNN has reporters at presidential press conferences. If anything the freedom of the press argument is on the White House's side how so. Because the purpose of a presidential press conference is to allows many reporters as possible to ask pertinent questions and for the president the answer them. In other words, they press conferences for the American people. One of the difficulties the other members of the press and the president are having communicating with each other including tough questions, so the president. And thereby informing the American people Jim Acosta. When Jim Acosta disrupts the press conference. Monopolize the time and basically gives his political opinions about a president who he constantly calls a liar. We learned nothing. We learn absolutely nothing. And I would tell the lawyers who filed this lawsuit you filed a very dishonest. Brief your recitation of the facts are not the facts. And we the people watch this press conference, you left out an awful lot of information that is harmful to your client. And I can tell you that when the Justice department defense against this. They actually might put the actual transcript in the brief to show the court. How you misled? And you're not standing up for the media in the country. You're not standing up for the press in the country, CNN and Jim Acosta. You're not in any way. There's one hundred and fifty reporters in that room. Jim Acosta is one. This isn't about freedom of the press. Know what this is about is an individual who provocative. Who wants to create drama? And not about news about him and CNN and CNN wanting to get their ratings up. Now, this could go in front of Obama court or Clinton court, but as a sixty yard pass they're hoping for the best. But in the end, it's nothing more than a press release. Short and simple. Now, let's take a look at this. Let's take a real look at this. We get Electr about what the framers of the constitution intended. I would remind my friend Ted Olson. Ted Olson, this is A Gibson Dunne lawsuit. Ted Olson was Ronald Reagan's lawyer Ted Olson represented parties in the same sex marriage case in California on the side of same sex marriage and Ted also now's taken up the cause of CNN and Jim Acosta, it's unfortunate. They talk about the framers of our constitution. First of all the Bill of rights. The first ten amendments were not originally part of the constitution where they. So the framers of the constitution in Philadelphia had nothing to do with the first amendment matter of fact, it was the states. That insisted. On various amendments to the constitution. And it was James Madison and John Adams among other who relented. During the debates in the states over ratification that when the first congress would meet. They would introduce amendments to rectify what some of these states thought were imperfections. That's how we got the Bill of rights from the states. Let's be totally clear about that wasn't the framers of the constitution. Was the attendees at the various ratification debates in the states. That's the first point. The second point is since we've had this first amendment. And I hope these supreme court justices are listening. We've had many great presidents and many lousy presidents. We had two out of three really great presidents. Who through journalists in prison? That's not why they were great. It's in spite of that the first being John Adams as discussed here repeatedly. John Adams was a brilliant, man. He wasn't crucially important founder. He was the second president of the United States. Any lost his seat in part? Due to the airline and sedition acts, which Thomas Jefferson and the Republicans rejected. They campaigned on that. And they won. The second president. There are others. But the second president, I'll mention is the great ABRAHAM LINCOLN sixteenth president. One two New York. Newspapers published a fake presidential proclamation during the course of the civil war. Lincoln was furious. And he ordered one of his generals to arrest the editors and the journalists. Who worked at those newspapers? Exactly what they did. He did more. He shut down those newspapers. And his surrogates. Shutdown almost three hundred newspapers during the course of the civil war. I don't see that mentioned in Ted Olson's brief I don't see John Adams mentioned in since brief why get that in a second. Then we have Woodrow Wilson one of the founding fathers of the progressive movement in this country. President of the United States in the earlier part. Of the last century a democrat. While he was kind of enthralled but Adams had done and they had an espionage act of nineteen seventeen and the Democrats in congress amended. To add what's called today, the nine hundred eighteen Sedition Act, and of course, Woodrow Wilson signed it. So addition of being a racist and a segregationist this leading progressive. He threw journalists in prison as well as political opponents. Now, not to bore you to death. Let's jump up Barack Mel house Benita Obama. He sought to throw journalists in prison to there's various leak investigations there were more investigations of journalists related to leak investigations during the Obama administration, then all his modern predecessors combined. He investigated in investigative reporter for the New York Times, he investigated investigative reporter for Fox News. He investigated twenty eight p reporters. And they used espionage surveillance. Never really pressed to tough by any of the people at CNN during presidential press conferences, as a matter of fact, Barack Obama had a little trick to press conferences. He do a press conference for thirty forty fifty minutes, and there be three four five questions tops because he would filibuster. I don't remember any reported jumping up and yelling at the president. I don't remember any reported jumping up and calling the president a liar. I don't remember any interference. With his rope. A dope. Except once. Neil Munro of the daily caller at the time. President was doing one of his things out there. The rose garden and the L one rodale dare to yell out a question out of turn. He wasn't accusing the president or anything heating. Call the president anything. He wasn't debating the president. He dared to yell at a question out of turn. While the president was conducting one of his filibusters and the media at the event turned on Neil Munro. Attacked him. Remember this? Attacked him. So that's a little historical background. That's all missing from this brief as you would expect, but they right on item. Five the framers of our constitution embraced a profound national commitment to the principle that debate on public issues should be uninhibited robust and wide open. And that it may well include vehement, caustic, and sometimes unpleasantly sharp attacks on government and public officials near at times versus Sullivan, nobody's disputing that. We're talking about somebody disrupting a presidential press conference. You can't have street. Protesters dressed up as reporters interfering with the president presidential press conference. You see, ladies and gentlemen, I posted something early this morning, which has been regurgitated by the backbenchers all day on. I said, this is a ridiculous suit. As I say, they're I'm sure they're form shopping looking for an Obama judge or a Clinton judge. But no reporter has a constitutional right to be physically present in the press room anymore than the scores of reporters who are not so lucky as to get a hard pass to be there in the first place. You've got reporters all over the country local newspapers regional newspapers statewide newspapers national websites, people involved in national social media, and so forth and national newspapers they all don't get in there unless you're going to have a baseball stadium, and everybody's present. So a line does have to be drawn. Now, it's either drawn by the president or the supreme court. The supreme court has no business whatsoever in this none. It's called separation of powers, and I might add. That the supreme court which conducts itself in secret the supreme court, which does not hold press conferences, the supreme court in which justices like Ruth, Bader Ginsburg, go out and give interviews is in no position to be dictating policy to the president of the United States. This is not about freedom of the press. It's about an administrative policy that the White House's decided on because I got some kid in the back row who keeps up blowing up bubble gum and popping it in the back row and disrupting the class. That's pretty much. What's taking place? You understand that? There's nothing in the constitution that compels the president to hold a presidential press conference period. Watch the court order to hold one. I wrote this all up this morning. So you heard the back benches. I'm sure there's nothing in the constitution that compels the president to call on anyone from CNN, let alone Jim Acosta. Period. Kosta does not have a constitutional right to disrupt the press conference and CNN doesn't either. And CNN doesn't either. Ted Olson and Theodore Boutrous. Are doing grave damage to our constitution. We have made repeated requests for Ted Olson to come on this program. Unfortunately, he won't I've been a friend of his for years. Both served in the same administration. The Laura Bush versus gore, I still consider him a friend. I haven't seen him in a long time. But I still consider my friend. But I wanted him to come on. So we can have an honest debate about this, you know, to inform the public even though neither of us are government. That would be a nice free speech thing to do. But his office did not respond to multiple emails and phone calls. Didn't even reply. Because his colleague Mr. Boutros, apparently is only doing friendly and supportive media. He's welcome on this program to it's an open door to either Ted. Because I want to have this discussion. I want to have this discussion. And out of control. Provocateur? In the middle of a press conference time and time again with the president or with the president's spokeswoman. Is not a matter of freedom of the press. Jim Acosta is the Morton Downey junior of the media. I have nothing personal against the late Morton Downey junior. But I'm saying when he used to have that syndicated program late at night. That's Jim Acosta. The White House has to decide who gets a hard press pass. And who does not? And in this case, they had huge reasons and justifications to withdraw it for mister Acosta. And we don't need this law firm. The tell us what took plates in that room because we all saw it with our own two eyes. And we all turned it whether owned two years, which is exactly why when you get into their statement of the facts in the lawsuit they mislead the court. They mislead the court. When you read item twenty-seven item twenty eight and twenty nine. They leave out key aspects of what Mr. Kosta did and said. And in fact, they accused the young lady inter of reaching a cost his body and grabbing the microphone. She shouldn't have had to grab the microphone. It wasn't his in the first place. It's a news conference. Not the UFC. Seem like one did it then they go through a whole list of things that the president has said about CNN and about the Kosta all of his tweets. What does that have to do anything? They're trying to throw Chom out there for any left wing activists judge to grab onto you. See the issue isn't what the president has said about CNN Kosta. The issue isn't even wanting to Costas said about the president repeatedly on CNN calling Malar. The issue is what took place at that press conference. And what took place at that press conference? Actually undermined the ability of the media and the president to communicate with the American people. It was an attack on freedom of the press by Jim Acosta CNN and Time Warner I'll be right back..

It's the best deal in Pittsburgh. Text me at eight six six three nine one ten twenty. I had a little bit of free time this week. And I watched people react. And then I walked people react to the reaction because that to me is when it's most interesting. And I want to know your reaction. I sat earlier this week and said, oh, I can't wait to get wanna hear what people think about this. The media and the president are not playing nice. If it was a play date. You wouldn't meet them at the park again. And there's there's there's enough blame to go around. But. It went one step further than it needed to. I watched the video. I saw it. I saw it. The only person I felt sorry for was the poor girl that standing there. What do I do at the Mike? I don't know what it would. And you know, like five six months ago, she texted one apprentice, I've got a job at the White House thing ever. And there she has to give me a Mike give me tonight. He. Jim acosta. Is. An amazing journalist has had a massive career, and we'll be much longer. Remember media anything than I could ever hope to be. Karma. But he needs to recognize that the story is not about him. And he moved when he refuses to yield. He's making the story about him. And in those press conferences. If it if there's mutual respect. Whatever question. Good. Get cut off would be rephrased and asked by the next person that guy called on. But that's the that whole groups dysfunctional too. On the other side of it. Gem buddy, you got set up and you bought into it. The president would went after you. And as the saying goes, you get your dander up. Everyone looked ridiculous. But if the press is to be believed, the press has to be the gatherers of the story. The press can't be the story. Because then we just go deeper down into that. That reality show rabbit hole. Now where it got even weirder was Sarah Huckabee Sanders shared a video that had been edited. Poorly. She shared the video of her official Twitter account to justify the White House decision to pull Jim's ticket on press credentials. And it was edited. It was it I seen them anymore. Remember, what website doesn't matter? But I watched it is like it's not even a good at it. Is ridiculous. C plus seriously. If you're in television production one on one that attempt to zoom in to make things look. That's the kind of edit that you would do if the project was due in five minutes. Today. The president went a step further drug side note, if you're going to continue to get insulted every time, the president says something degrading towards a woman or towards a woman of color you. Don't wear yourself out. Okay. The press has to be above it. And I can be tough. But guess what it's gotta be above it and Jim Acosta getting called and unprofessional person. And you're a bad person, and boo and all that. You make so much more of an impression regarding your Bellizzi by standing there and continuing to be professional. And there is a very weird, but very tangible the unwritten rules of a press conference. Pecking order the whole deal everybody if you've sat and more than two or three of them you start figuring out if you pay attention..

"Use promo code the blaze for thirty percent off. Len. I want to kind of explore the the the idea that Americans now have to be parents, not only in their own home. But for those in the media and those in Washington what I saw yesterday and the way people were behaving with Jim Acosta and the president they both were little children, quite honestly, I'm not going to make excuses for Donald Trump. But I thought he was the better of the two by far in this case, but I have two children. I have a son and a daughter, and they're always fighting with each other. You know, and they're always I know both of them. I know that she is always needling him and always tattle tailing and always trying to get him into trouble. He is also just like, you know. My sister, drives me nuts. And he would he loses his temper sometimes we'll that's what we have a cost is my daughter needling, the president all the time just trying to get him into trouble gay just trying to be the big dog and the president lost his temper yesterday. And I have no problem because I think he held it for a very long time as we said yesterday, I think he held it for a very long time. But the two of them need to knock it off. But it's not even a cost. It's CNN that should be ashamed. The president revoked his credentials. But I'm having a hard time with this. Because I don't believe that. I don't want the president to be able to pick who's covering him, you know, and just revoked credentials. I don't like that. However, what was the president supposed to do you can't live like this? But here's where here's where it really breaks down in society because half of us are saying Jimmy Kosta. He's a hero and half of us are saying the president is a hero. We're both. We're acting like bad parents. We know both sides when we're alone with each other not in public. But when I'm alone with bunch of really hardcore Trump supporters when nobody's listening. They will say I hate the way the tweet things I hate all of that. But you know, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, same thing. The other side, I think I hope that they are saying yet CNN's out of out of control. I'm not sure because I don't have that. I well, I don't have a lot of lefty friends, but I do have a lot of democratic friends, and they're sick of it as well. We have to stop choosing sides. We have to say when Twitter are saw this last night. Oh, so you're against a a cost us or what's his name costs us. You're against a cost us. Oh, you're just excusing Trump. No said, so is it. It's like children, I'm dealing with you right now. I'll talk to your brother alone. I'm talking about. What you did? I don't care what he did. And it's so frustrating, but there's another level. And if you look at Jonathan height, and we're going to talk about this on radio, hopefully tomorrow, Jonathan height says that there are six moral foundations and the six moral foundations liberals now remember, he's a liberal progressive liberals. You'd say that about himself now. But he was when he started research for this book, he was so he says liberals have three moral foundations, and they are care, fairness and liberty. We have conservatives have six we have those three. But then we also have loyalty we have respect for authority, and I'm trying remember what the la- and sacredness or. Can't remember what he calls it? But you know, is there nothing sacred. That's where the spring down is coming down in our conversations because all they're talking about. Now is liberty. They wanna say. It's my dogs with me because we had to put his best friend down on Monday. So he's kind of said he's very curious about the campaign goes, so he's so he's just kind of hanging out with me at work. But. We can't talk to each other. Because all they want to do is talk about liberty and the president should do you should do this. Well, we wanna talk about a thority. It's the president. You asked your question. You just kept going. We have to have some order. So we're just talking over each other..

"We were just having this conversation off air. I think that what? What we saw last night is explained in this exchange between the two both sides are tired of the extremist, and you can play what aboutism all day long. You can look if you're on the on the left, you can say Donald Trump. He's he had every right to punch Jim Acosta, literally puncher, but verbally say enough. And you know, you're a bad person every right because of the way Jim was acting, and you can say Jim is Opposers and everything else. However, if you're on the left, you can say that about Donald Trump, and what's happening is we're comparing two sides, and it's your either for this one or that one where what we saw in the election last night was we don't want either of those don't want either of those. I think there's really only five different types of political conversations, and I won't. Tale all of them. But the most common one by far particularly with the media is just our team is the good team. The other team is the bad team. It's the easiest one it lends itself to that. What aboutism rather than dealing with the actual what was the violation that happened. What was the that was broken? Just who's the good guy who's the bad guy in this one furthers that narrative of there's too I don't I don't feel like I'm on either team. And I think there's a lot of Americans that are neither. And yet when you get into that. What about is MC creates that false dichotomy when I got into the voting both yesterday. I felt like I was on team. And I didn't like it. You know, I was like this has got to stop. And I didn't like it. I don't want to be on a team, but you get to a point to where which pick your poison is back to that. And that's that's not good because it's poison speaking a moment in defense of what aboutism, I think it's important. There's a voice here that defends it. I think what aboutism could be really bad. If what you're using it for is to exonerate your person. Right. Like if I'm going to say, Trump didn't do anything wrong. Because look what it cost us doing to call them. Both terrible in these situations. I think what aboutism someone appropriate. I think they both active bad, and you made a point off the air that, you know, first of all, you know, you're not supposed to necessarily expect as much out of a report of resum random reporters. You are the president. I think that's a fair point and Kosta, I think is very self aggrandizing, but they both are any breach decorum, which is the. For those of us that are concerned with the dissolution of discord civility. If it's happening, regardless of where it's happening. It's a bad thing. It doesn't help..

"They're both in it to make themselves. Feel more important both that entire transaction. There was a transaction designed to inflate both of their egos and it works because everyone talks about it. I mean cost is if you need to find one person in America to ignore. Jim Acosta is wonderful nominee for that position. And this is an example of what people don't want anymore is it troubling at all to you Andrew that. There were a very large amount of reporters who were sending their support to Jim Acosta or that extreme. No, I I got to say the president of the United States is calling the media. The enemy the people. I mean, like, I've become berkey is the result of Trump coming in in Burke for anybody. That's not familiar with kind of the godfather of conservativism ripe for the revolution. This idea that we have these very important institutions that are underpinning American of American civil discourse. And he's kicking one of those legs, very hard. So I can understand having that like reflexive defensive other reporters in there just the second hand second. Because I I am I mean, I been taken on by two presidents now I have been in those rooms I have I have been at CNN, and I bet at FOX. So I consider myself a member of the press. I am you know, they don't like to say this. But I am right with them. I have joined their freedom of press organizations with all the lefties, I will support is supported freedom of the press when Obama was doing it. And they didn't care I've doing it now as well. But you the president does not have a right to shut anyone down. He does not have a right to silence. Anyone? However, you can't. You can't tell me that. I don't have a right to respond to things that I think I mean, they're not fair to him. I'm not let's not play. What aboutism. Sure. Okay. Because we can spend an hour doing him. I'll concede to that. Like if someone's just refusing to relinquish the microphone that's a situation indefinite make you kind of understand where he's where Trump is coming from. When he says that when you see how Jim Acosta behave towards him. Is that not there's no wind here. But. Break it down to this and ask this. I do not like nor do I agree with enemy of the people. I don't like when he says that. That repeatedly on. However. Forget take yourself take yourself as that alien ship that just was going around the sun. Okay. You're an alien in you're watching it's kind of like an invading force. I don't like that term. And it's not quite right. But it is kind of you know, they're saying I'm gonna cross your border, and you're going to try to stop me, and I don't care, and so it is kind of an invasion. I mean, a home invasion is a robbery. Okay. So it's not quite right. And I don't like it. Same thing with of the people they're not the enemy people. But they they are they they act at times as a an enemy of truth. Now, Donald Trump does too. But sometimes they're they knowingly move interactions that are absolutely unfair and untrue. If you are one of the legs of the table, which you are in an important one. You do have a responsibility to say, wait a minute guys. Is wait a minute. We gotta be fair and not have an agenda other than the truth. I would agree with that. That's true. Yeah. Absolutely. I I would agree. And I would just add onto your point about about it not happening in vacuum. I think you're totally right on that. I mean, there is a reason for reporters at times to be angry at Trump. However, most of them are able to handle it and still be respectful. I think like with cost. The this happening in a vacuum. It goes both ways with us. The cost is is there's oceans and oceans between Jim Acosta and Jake, tapper Anderson Cooper and wolf Blitzer. And there's a ton of people at CNN that are really good and Jim Acosta is is known grandstand. Or he's out there all the time trying to make himself into a big deal..

"I'm Jim Acosta Ron burgundy. You never see him and we'll Farrell in the same room at the same time. Do you. So he felt like he wasn't in America anymore, and this is I actually kind of like Jim Acosta I very serious. Someone asked me if the daily wire could send a Representative to the White House. Would it be say would have to be Jim Mukasa because there's a sort of guile listening to him. You know, they report the most absurd fake news all the time and by fake news. I mean, certain dishonest lines, certain actually inaccurate stories. And then also they just harp on constant negative nonsense. President Trump has the most negative press coverage in modern presidential history. Despite the fact that his approval rating in the country is fifty percent. It's it's actually quite quite high. And despite the fact that we have a booming economy that we've got peace abroad that we've got low unemployment record-low joblessness of crime down, hate crime down all of these great statistics that we can take off. But the mainstream media harp on issues that the American people don't care about. They harp on the the Russia investigation that they harp on these issues that Americans rank in the bottom of bottom percentages of what they care about, what matters to them, what it should be newsworthy, which should be politically newsworthy, but they. The other thing to point out here is you've got this video of of Ron burgundy. Jim Acosta standing there in the press cage and you've got all these Trump supporters just making fun of him. You know, because they don't like the mainstream media, the mainstream media or unpopular because they're liars. They carry water for Democrats. They're dirty rotten liars, but they're not like punching him in the face. They're not climbing over the cage to stab him or something like that. There haven't been political attacks on journalists in America. In recent history, there have been some where their personal gripes between people and certain local journalists that's happened a handful of times, but there haven't. You know, there isn't a epidemic of Trump's supporters going out and physically attacking members of the mainstream media that doesn't exist. What does exist, however, is members of the media and also lefties riling up and inciting violence against Trump supporters. Everybody from media types in the Democratic Party and on the left all the way to elected officials. Ginny up a attacks on Trump supporters on people who worked for President Trump ju. Just look at a few of these tweets talk about a dehumanizing from PBS and NPR composer Christopher o'riley quote, calling them deplorables euphemize ING them, maybe better to euthanize get it. We shouldn't euphemize them. We shouldn't give them a little nickname. We should kill all of them. You don't see that you, you don't really see that with Jim Acosta with Trump supporters to Jim Acosta. We make fun of Jim Acosta because he's eminently mockup, but you don't see that sort of, let's kill them all. Let's euthanize them. How about TV host? John Murray says this scene referring to Jim Acosta's experience at the Trump rally. This scene looks like a modern day. Ku Klux Klan rally, amazing to see that Donald Trump, the man occupying the White House is so comfortable in his atmosphere of hate philosophy, bigotry and diploma language. God bless America owes where. The hostility coming from, sir, whereas that how is this like a Ku Klux Klan rally? Because that's the easiest that's the easiest insult. It's the worst thing you can say about a person to say that their biggest that they're racists, that they're the worst thing you can say in modern America. What's the evidence was really funny is in the clip in that clip of Jim Acosta there. The first group of people that was prominent group on camera is a big group that says blacks for Trump. So just like all those old, Ku Klux Klan, rallies blacks for the clan. You don't see that a lot. That's not true. It's just it's just an insane, slander, it's insane liable to say that about Trump supporters, and it really does. Gina patriot is what you're saying is these Trump supporters are domestic terrorists and we gotta take care of them. Obviously, this is, you know, they're oblivious to their to what they're saying themselves. How about wilpon or the the author wilpon.

We have the one and only Jim Acosta if Jim Acosta did not exist, conservatives would have to create Jim Acosta the future daily wire White House correspondent Jim Acosta. He got into a little heat because he was at a Trump event. He was added Trump rally and some Trump supporters were echoing him. I wonder why I wonder why they would do that. Doesn't that seem so crazy. So then Jim Acosta went on television and started crying those mainstream media, crocodile tears here is Mr.. Kosta is covered callous. If these has become one of the president's favourite human punching bags CNN chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta, Jim, we've seen your your videos and I've, I've been to these events to I've met with countless Trump supporters even. I was shocked at the level of vitriol. That was aimed your way last night. Give us an idea of what it felt like to be in the middle of it. Well, I s I mean, honestly, it felt like we weren't in America anymore on. I don't know how to put a any more plainly than that. Americans should not be treating their fellow Americans in this way. But unfortunately, what we've seen in this has been building for some time since the campaign I've been. I've been talking about this as an issue since the campaign when the president during the campaign referred to us as the dishonest media, the disgusting news media, liar, scum, and thieves, and so on. And then he rolled that right into the Oval Office and started calling us fake news, the enemy of the people. He is whipping these crowds up into a frenzy to the point where they, they really wanna come after us, and we, you know, we have these these bike rack like barriers around the press cages. We call it to protect us essentially from people who might take things too far. It's unfortunate because I try to calmly talk to a lot of these folks at the rally last night to say, listen, hey, you know, tell me what you want to talk about here. Why are you guys so upset with us? And they. Would kind of go through a list of questions. Most of most of the questions were about, why don't you guys report positive news about the president? I said, hey, you know what we do that we were reporting on this positive job numbers in the economy last Friday and might my sense of it SE is that the that these opinions that these folks have at these rallies, they're shaped by what they see in the primetime hours of Fox News and what they hear from some conservative news outlets that just sort of give them this daily diet of what they consider to be terrible things that we do over here. I at CNN it's very unfortunate, but it's it's, it's a pitting of American against American. And honestly, it needs to stop. Honestly, it needs to stop and I'm Ron burgundy. I'm Ron burgundy..
