"Door to door trick or treating is not recommended as it makes social distancing nearly impossible and the same goes for what's called trunk or treating which children go from car to car instead of from house to house since it's difficult to avoid that very same crowding and sharing food.

"Know, do as I say not as I do type thing. That the last thing that I want to say and I wanted to respond in earlier caller, regarding you know trump and his handling of the coronavirus and I I feel for that guy and and his son, because share with you. My son lost his senior year of Baseball on the high school level they home for break, and never went back and baseball was canceled, and that was the end of you know, and and he had a hard time dealing with that. But you know Paul out you. You spend time to go back and you look at our country as a whole, and our leadership is a whole handling this from the very beginning. There's been a terrible amount. Of miscall calls miscalculations and and muffs on this to go around from trump, and I agree that that he did not. Take the serious approach that he probably should have taken from the beginning I. Don't have a problem saying that but I also heard. Faouzi you know Pelosi the Blasio many many others. Say This is not that big of a deal. It's not much to worry about you know. The World Health Organization at one time said it wasn't transferable person to person. You know, so there's there's a lot of blame to go around and I don't think it wise on one person's. Play something. I. Can I agree with you on that, and that's why I got upset the other day the president is is symbolic, and yes, he does influence what happens around him, and I think he has had influence especially with the CDC in other people, but but also the I'm not going to blame one person in this country for where we are this this all of our responsibility. Well, you know, and the thing with the mass fall and you know I've caught in a couple of times, and I've looked at statistics and articles interviews, and you and I've talked about it. The the research and the findings on masks, and you know this as well as either. It's very mixed. It is extremely mixed. I I've come around to that now, but I think the mask is basically saying protect yourself. and. I saw McDonald's Today. Is. Requiring Mass I mean everyone's work requiring them I mean I hate to run Janet. Thanks for the call. We were up against a break a lot to do. We're off and running here on a Friday afternoon.

"To have the Alex Berenson. The former New York Times reporter, who really has become one of the most controversial figures in the country right now on covert. We'll take a break much more to come as we continue. And listening to the Paul Finebaum show podcast. We. Welcome you back in a really great to have you with US Shannon is up next. Hey, Shannon, good afternoon! Are you. Doing Great. Hey. was there ever a more appropriate first pitching baseball than south skills. I mean I'm I have never seen worse flattening the curve ball in my life. That was scary. I listened. You know what you're getting into when you do that. The one thing that would make me nervous. I've done things like that in front of big crowds of particularly playing golf. It's it's you get nervous from the crowd. There was no crowd I don't know why he was nervous. Paul I don't think it was nervous. I think it was lack of athletic ability okay? I mean He. He is say he is seventy years old, but he should have known they remember in the old days they used to. The president would show up at a game. He would be sitting in his box and he would just kind of toss the ball to the catcher. That's what he should have done. He should have never gone out I. Mean You compare that? Remember remember George. W. Bush at the world series. After nine eleven Yankee Stadium I mean the guy. He was a baseball player. But he fired a strike right over the the middle of the plate. In and I wondered. Did you see the pictures of the stands? Yeah? Pitch and any comment on that Paul. Yeah I I. Think optically it was a terrible look. for the the nation's number, one infectious disease expert to be seen without his mask on or his mass below his mouth I thought that was a terrible look. I mean he had to know. There are cameras everywhere I realized that was his wife next to him, who did not have a mask on at all? It doesn't matter he should. He should have had the mask on. He's been telling me and you to wear a mask for the last four months. You know it's it. It was really came off as a lot of you.

"Masks and you know it's not like the CROMER's is new, but people were talking about flu epidemics as a really serious problem. You know really starting in two thousand three when source hit. And they and and there was a lot of debate about what to do. And we basically through it all out in a matter of days in March Why did we do that? That's a question. You know that's the question that takes four hours to answer and I'm not sure I have a great answer. I think people were very scared. Very scared about what they saw it on the very scared about what came out of China. The lockdowns and China seem to a worked. At this point I don't think we can know anything about what really happened in China, and maybe we never will, but but and if you remember the promise was we're going to flatten the curve. This isn't going to go on forever, but unfortunately once you start a walk. There's a lot of political pressure to continue it and you know so. You've seen these states have they've backed off very slowly and now the positive test results increasing You know there's pressure to put them back on. There's a lot of media pressure. It's a it's a it's very. Very strange situation and right now even in the Sunbelt, which is obviously, there's a lot of partners. There's a lot of community transmission. The deaths in the sunbelt are much lower than they were in New York, or they're lower significant mammals mush. There's never lower than they were in new. York City alone. In in March in April, and everyone seems to have forgotten. We're talking about death in the low hundreds in Florida and Texas, which are huge state, daily death, and in Arizona, for example your again to your listeners, don't notice the number of people hospital in the State of Arizona for Code Has Gone Down Twenty five percent in the last ten days. Okay it looks like maybe passed the peak in some of these states, but the media will not talk about this stuff. And one or two questions Alex and I'll let you go, but in terms of the media I mean again. I introduced you earlier you were. A reporter for the New York Times for a number of years considered a among the premier. In this field. So you have a good perspective. You've been on a million shows on on most of the major network. You've been profiled by by your old newspaper. Why do you think the media is doing what it is currently doing Mostly across the board, not entirely but mostly. I I mean I think there's a lot of group think I think it's very hard to get away from the narrative. I think that just like public experts. It's easier. It's easier to say on panicking or you don't say on panic. You say here's the worst case scenario if it doesn't come true, I don't look bad if I say here's what I really think happening. It's not so bad and you're wrong on that side and things are worse. You look bad and people accuse you of having killed people. Okay I will say this. People say to me, who are you? You're not a doctor. You're not an epidemiologist. You're not a barrage. Why do you get to talk about this? That's totally fair question. Here's why I get to talk about this I'm not telling anybody to practice medicine. I'm not telling anybody that I know how this works or or You know that I'm some kind of expert on file, transmission or anything like that? Here's what I'm good at and what I've been good at my whole career. I'm good at looking at numbers and figuring out whether they say what the people were talking about. Say say that's what investigative financial reporting is. Lot Drug Industry reporting ideas, and that's what a lot of this is, and that is something that I will stand my ground on. Well I'll always great to have you on and I'm certainly riveted by what you're saying, but I say is one of your biggest fans of your novel series I do miss them very much I. Do too Paul. I want to get back to John Wells I do he's he for those who don't know that John. Wells is just one of the most fascinating characters and. You had just a boatload of number one bestselling books and I I know you'll get around to it but I just wanted to say that. As a Fan Alex thanks for coming back Paul, thanks for having me great to have the Alex Berenson. The former New York Times reporter, who really has become one of the most controversial figures in the country right now on covert. We'll take a break much more to.

"Main reason why won't and it's because college presidents do not want that exposure and I think deep down. They are scared to death about that There is no way to predict you can get. The fifty epidemiologist in the country and line them up, and and they would probably tell you if satistics somebody who's going to die, I'm just that's just the way it goes the depends on how it happened, but it would be a story that. I think would be as. Catastrophic to college sports and College academia's anything that we've ever experienced and and I. Yeah, right now. I still think there is a tremendously. strong push to get this season in some way shape, or form I I was communicating with somebody today, and I I somebody in a position I, said realistically, what do you? What do you think we can do here? He said if we can get half the season in. We'll be happy now I. Know That's con. Contrary to what they're saying. But, that's how scared they are. And in relation to. A italty. I don't even know how to explain it. It would be. The game would shut down instantaneously. I think you know. They have to look at also you know. I mean you every variable that you introduce you know from from the from the online officials to the people on the sidelines to the people in the stands that just you lose more and more control. is you go out on that? And so it? It just boggles my mind and don't get me wrong I. Just I hate to see college football not happen, but I have to believe that these presidents will ask these very pointed questions about him they they will. Those your and you know Andy. The presidents have a different responsibility. If I if you're the athletic director at Florida And seventy or eighty percent of your budget is going to get wiped out. You're arguing to play. Within reason. The president has has has more to lean on his. You Know He. He not only has the infrastructure of a school, but he has endowments and I think they will do it. Differently I don't know how they're going. Next week is next. Week is the most critical week next week so week. We've been talking about now for for two months. And that is that is. Today is important next week more important I. Thank you very much the call. We've had some really good callers already today. Alex Berenson at the bottom of the hour if you missed his first visit. And you are one who thinks to media is in overdrive. Over blowing Cova, you will definitely want to listen to Alex Berenson. He will be your best friend.

As we speak, they could decide to cancel a false sports championships now. What would that mean the headline would be scary. Wouldn't mean very much, but. It could send a message and we are watching and waiting, and we will talk about that with some of our guest today to say the least. Including Brett mcmurphy when he joins us a little bit. Later on. This is interesting. This is a football player. Three year starter at Michigan State, Jordan Reed. He tweeted today. Guys are testing positive across the country left and right. Why is there still discussion on a season? Why is it taking so long to make a logical decision let me guess. This is a starter at a big ten school. Questioning what his? Coaches administrators at Michigan State, and in the big ten, and everywhere else are currently doing some reaction to that, and will we. See more of that. Don't forget. This is twenty twenty one. Absolutely anything goes so that's a really interesting story of from Jordan. Reed did I. Meanwhile, the Florida High School Athletic Association has reversed decision now they'll start. Later than usual, this is quite a quite a chess game going on right now with high schools across the country. We heard about Texas yesterday Florida Today Alabama Wednesday deciding.

Michael ESCO, former CBS sports executive now the Commissioner of the American Athletic Conference. And West blankenship will join us in the final hour maybe to give you something to laugh about as we head into the weekend. Now I've already made my. Worst prediction of the college football season involved baseball. I predicted last night that Anthony Fauci. Would look good throwing the opening pitch of the major league baseball season. Instead he looks just like me trying to throw from the PITCHER's mound. Let's get to the calls at eight, five, five, two, four, two, seven, two, eight five love to hear from all of you, and let's start with George Excuse me gene in Nashville Tennessee gene good afternoon. Heard about the notion of the possible to change the name rupp arena I thought to myself that about the silliest thing I've heard, but if they did that, you'd have to do the same thing for dean. Smith Center because as you're aware. The Harry Truman's integrated the armed forces in nineteen, forty eight spiff left the Air Force Academy to go to University of North Carolina, which was Jim Crow Program at the time in one, thousand, nine, hundred, fifty eight, so therefore you know, he would be guilty also, wouldn't he? Yeah, you know it's interesting. You bring up Dean. I would argue, and I'm sure you know the story very well, Jean. The Dean Smith was probably one of the most. Activist coaches of that era in and that would be a tragedy if it happened to Dean Smith. I don't think it's going to happen to offer up. I don't think so either, and I think it's a it's a separate. And I really don't you know the confederate? debate about Fort Bragg and Fort Hood and all that I I. Don't I'm totally? On on right from wrong there but I. I think I agree with you. I think it's ludicrous to start taking names off buildings that have been there for fifty years. One, point about Dean Smith. you know he coach k. up. Nine miles apart, and we're quite rivals. Several years ago, the story was that these Smith was a very activist, a Liberal Democrat and Coach K. coming through from the military. He was a Republican so. I think kind of interesting. Yeah. I forgot about that. coach K.. played for Bob Knight at at West Point. Is Is he did. Gene that's a I I'm glad you brought up Dean Smith! Though because I don't I? I got to listen. There's no way I knew him very well, but I did hear interviewing a few times, a new head, red volumes on him, and he he was in addition to being one of the greatest basketball coaches of all time He's also one of the most. Interesting and and courageous coaches of all time and I'm really glad you brought him up. Look good. I have two brothers who went to UNC Chapel. Hill, that's sort of kept up with things through them. Yeah well. I have well. Thank you for the call. I haven't done a lot of friends who are North Carolina graduates and I. Don't think he got. He got a lot of credit certainly but. I think What would he tried to do during that era? When listen it was? It's easy to talk about now. It wasn't easy to implement back then. Thank you for the call. Really do appreciate it Let's check in with Andy. In destin Florida Hello Andy. Just. I'm scared to death. If we're not gonNA have college football, because I just don't know if I can live through four more months of reruns. Politics. and Kobe updates, I think we'll all go insane, so but having said that I did see where the SEC presidents are meeting next week and I believe that will probably to make some decisions about athletics and I. Just wondered you know. We talk about a lot. You know testing and some of the activities, and certainly you know fear of players and different individuals, getting sick but I'm sure that one of the main things on these. My will be what happens. If God forbid, there's Potala thirty during this time because we elected to play and do sports this fall, and how we handle the the media, and how we handle you know the potential financial exposure. I haven't really heard, too. Many people talk about that aspect I. Just wondered how you felt on. Andy you brought up college. Football is not played this fall. You have just isolated the..

I. A. K. you know what they really know I I I you know about the corona virus in it I'm not going to that's not a game I'm gonna play so I just I just want to clear but that's as somebody who's been in the media for about a number of years when we look at what was happening as this for started breaking I've never seen media handle a story like this where they were giving us and they still do now daily counts of deaths and infections when they never did this with the seasonal flu were upwards of sixty thousand Americans die every year they never reported on that didn't didn't know know where ever did I see stories about twenty people have died from the flu tonight but with this every day that was account and I think they scared the living daylights out of people and that's really true that part is clearly to first thought you just said you know it's not true that every year sixty thousand there have up to up to up to but yes but but you know the full company does every year and with the exception in the last twenty years of the you know the H. one and one swine flu in two thousand nine nobody pays any attention to it you know it calms and you'd think they'd tell you to get a vaccine and some people do and some people don't and and you know and then if you you know a few people die from it and that's the end of it I I totally agree and we don't count the death this way don't shut down the country this way and you know we we have treated this entirely different and partly I mean you can clearly see several reasons one is you know he came out of China and it was scary yeah okay and it's it's not the flu I mean physically obviously different than the full if the different buyers to see different file by rolled back to the flu and you know sort of the original stars and murders are very we thought so so you know this this has something in common with those of people were scared okay that's one reason a second reason is that you know when it came to the United States where it really hit hard where has it really hit hard what New York City so so what what we know we're near street near city is the media capital of the world so anything that happens in New York City gets magnified and blown out of proportion yeah you know I mean and if if I what this is an important thing so the things that are important get really blown out of proportion and what else we know well I mean people in the media hate Donald Trump I mean a lot of them not all along yeah and let's you know let's end this so if you lived in Brooklyn or if you live in Brooklyn and you you know you were afraid in mid March or late March that this might actually kill you or kill someone you knew and at the same time you hate Donald Trump and you personally blame trump this well there was a there was a hysteria that picked up but you can see in both the articles in the you know in the CNN coverage and the tweets and it was off the charts and it has not gone away and I understand why people are scared but what has happened now is people are actively mislead people in the media and they are actively misleading Americans about what the risks are here so if you look at the rest okay one of the most unbelievable statistics and that is how age stratified the death for him in the best estimate is that more people over the age of one hundred one hundred have died worldwide from this been under the age of thirty this isn't this just does not affect you don unity you know children can get it but they don't get sick from it they don't die from it same with teenagers and people in their twenties also I mean there's gonna be some rare exceptions this stuff just the way you know a plane crash in once in a while it does not even flying is not six this is incredibly age stratified and that doesn't mean that we shouldn't do a lot about it it doesn't mean we should try to protect people but but the strategy of shutting down the country to protect people who are who are in nursing homes is you know it's a crazy strategy but if you're going to be honest you have to be on but he's getting sick and dying in what about the governors who seem to me in my opinion they are petrified of their own personal political career so they all jumped on the same bandwagon going I got to do something to I mean if if the governor of Massachusetts shut down his state I'm gonna shut down mine and I think it begin the mushroom like that in snowball either to your the other ways they're petrified the people people because the media has stepped this all right in favor of this most of the country at least maybe in the last week it has started to change a little bit but in March in in March in late March and early April there was nothing you could do that people wouldn't have support and so and so the government and and by the way it looks the governor of New York state well you know into Cuomo when he said I think we're gonna need a hundred forty thousand bags and you know we're gonna need forty thousand violators those numbers came from a real projection wasn't just making that up so that terror did you know that he I mean he he you know he I'm not gonna say he was terrible but the terror that you could see going through you know state officials was real okay so that happened and there was and there's political gain for for some of these and they didn't want to be accused of doing nothing and they didn't want to give them their number so now where are we were entered worded dangerous spot because anybody who looks at the numbers with it with any sort of reasonable hi right now can see that the threat is not what we thought it was instead of being a hundred and forty thousand bets New York state yet most it's gonna be eighteen thousand beds and that number's going down instead of instead of being forty thousand ventilators near St probably peaked at about four thousand dollars so the projections were off by ninety percent but the problem is the lock down has actually been even worse than we expected a month ago in terms of their economic here in terms of their societal here arguably in terms of their you know constitutional hit and so the sure has proven to be really terrible and the disease has proven to be not as terrible as you thought so if you're a politician you how do you walk away and how do you back off it without blowing up your political career and I think that's where these guys are now absolutely and it stands in some of the mainstream media anchor people these cable news channels they're still getting paid so of course they don't care what's going on and so they jump on the bandwagon of shut the country down let's protect everybody but they're still getting their checks Alex a very very big checks very yeah absolutely what a situation my gosh it's frustrating for a lot of people in the desk out they've got up to about thirty thousand now that they claim have died from the corona virus do you think that include some of the seasonal flow well it's it's it's more complicated than that and you know actually tonight because I'm trying to get you know sort of look at the New York City number so near city has reported about twelve thousand people in the last month has died from from the bars that seventy five hundred oracle confirm another four thousand problem where they actually don't even have a positive test result here's what's confusing all so that's eleven thousand hold that thought right there Alex we're gonna get a break and come back we'll pick it up right there at that spot because that's a very important and then later on this hour let's talk a little bit about your book tell your children the truth about marijuana mental illness and violence coast insiders the new version of

Is What We're Being Told About The Coronavirus Pandemic Wrong
"Today okay we're gonna talk a little bit more about a guy named Alex Berenson now if you don't know who he is he's a former New York times reporter and he is making news this morning for his hypothesis about what's going on in this country he's raising a lot of questions and a lot of concerns about the virus predictions and the models that he says were very exaggerated and he says in his estimation it has resulted in serious damage to the U. S. economy here's this clip I'm a journalist and what I what I think I'm pretty good at ease is seeing whether what people say and winds up with what's really happening and unfortunately what we're seeing and what we have seen for the last couple weeks is that the models would have predicted really apocalyptic things in places like New York City and nationally and in the U. K. don't seem to be matching what's going on in reality and in some cases Beasley's epidemiologic models are extremely new they've gone extremely sour in in a matter of Deeks and so I think we really have to ask what's going on here and whether or not there are strategies that might be less damaging to the economy that that would do just as well because we've we've taken huge steps we've you know we've put ten million people out of work more actually because that's the official numbers in just a couple weeks because I'm real societal harm and destruction we've done it on the basis of models that don't seem to line up with reality in real time this is a discussion and debate that's beginning to surface this morning on a pretty evident an emotional level in this country are the steps that we have taken have we gone too far is it been too much of a stretch for this country at the peril of our economic well being right well we can look to a country this done differently the Swedish government continues to advocate for relaxed measures are the Swedish public health agency they're telling citizens cover mouth when they cough or sneeze or wash hands but there's no state home orders all schools are open all businesses are open and everything's just run as it normally does and their infection rate their faith and their fatality rate from infection is over seven percent higher than here much higher it's three percent here in this country they have a seven point six eight percent of the Swedes have tested positive have died in Berenson is saying in his estimation this is an issue of balance maybe social isolation isn't needed in some places some of the data indicates that there are places that have had relaxed social isolation and there has not been the spread that we've seen in New York does it really work do we really need it and at what cost right well and and Sweden went with the herd the herd mentality right thinking okay we'll just kind of let it do what it does do it other flu pandemic or other flus do right and and see what happens and and you know it's getting mixed mixed reviews were saying we we needed a

A.J. Green's injury on 'subpar' Bengals practice field will cost wide receiver up to two months
"Speaking of injuries unfortunately an M._r._i.. Has revealed that Cincinnati Bengals Wide Receiver A._J.. Green has torn ligaments in his left. Ankle is according affording to Schefter here. They are likely to sideline green six to eight weeks up really not a good situation and teammate Tyler Boyd questioned the turf. The team was practicing on when green was injured. It was terrible. I couldn't run any routes out there. I'm falling all over the ground man it was it was bad. It was rocks pebbles out there man it was somewhere we should have been just feel like the turf was old. You know it just wasn't we didn't get good traction in and out of her breaks. You know a lot of guys not just me was on the ground but I mean who wasn't up there that long but there's gotTa make a word man. We gotta get it well. The turf was that welcome stadium at the University of Dayton where the bengals are practicing coach you buy this well. I haven't seen the video really in this instance probably not but I will say that you know feel. Surfaces are very very important for player safety. You know whether it's a grass field you know what is the old school latch with Pittsburgh steelers. We practice on hard old school astroturf every day for five years so no you got to look at it but in that instance I think it was a matter of the kind of rolling up on the back of his ankle and that was what I saw caused that particular injury about sure it was the field service problem here in addition to the injury of course which is is paramount is the optics of this and when you have a player who says this sort of perception is reality and then then it's out there and you got players. You might believe this is the case whether the optics to this are awful and this time of year teams are trying to realize their fan N._B._C.'s. I've been a part of that for a number of years. Every team has an operations department and kind of like the offensive line. You'd never talk about the operations department until there's a problem and part of their responsibility is to advance where hotels are safety of the fields whether or not the field deal with safer not now the perception is that it was a problem now e._j.. Green fairness may have gotten hurt it was on their practice field but they're players now think that was a factor and they're at the University of Dayton given rookie head coach. He's trying to establish himself itself and now he has a problem in the locker room because these players are questioning what the organization did and that Operation Staff that you're referring to my signed off on the practices being here the League went to them. They sent a site survey team to inspect the field and that site survey survey team for the Bengals said this field is okay to practicing and maybe they thought it's one practice we can get through now. You've got a situation where you see A._J.. Green get hurt on this play and we can take another look at it right here where he goes up for the past the D._v. lands on his ankle. He's on the turf tears ligaments in his ankle. He's going to be sixty weeks. Think about how much is at stake your now. You have a first year head coach Zack Taylor who's trying to come in and implemented program. They've already lost their first round draft. Pick joyner Williams to a season ending injury. Now you lose your left tackle. You lose your number one wide receiver. They are at a loss there and A._J.. Green himself is going into the last year of his contract so at a time when we're talking about new deals for Michael Thomas in Amari Cooper Julio Jones guess who else was on that list of A._J.. Green so what happens now to his value as argument now that he is going to be out for some period of time and organization standpoint. That's a really difficult position because A._J.. Degrees could say hey. I've done all the right things. I was out there practicing at the university because you wanted me to and now that's going to hurt me and take money out of my own pocket. It could really cause a situation to go awry very quickly and again even if the operations team went through all the protocols the the perception is that this feel wasn't safe and now they have a problem with one of their best players. Yeah I think that team without J. Green if you look at their record versus with huge and so he's a big part of their team. He's going to be missed. This is that there's a fair amount of injury here to start. You know this is not the way not the way you want to get off the ground. No team does last last year he missed time with a toe injury and when he was out of there the offense did not operate the same toddler boys production fell off and everybody thinks talent boy. We'll just emerge as the number one guy and he's a really good wide receiver but the fact that matters A._G.. Green when he's out there makes tyler. Holler bought a better received. John Ross still has not stepped up as the first round draft pick that he was. He says he's ready to do that. Will they need him to do that. They've got some other players Alex Berenson some good young receivers but A._J.. Green is on a level with Julio Jones. He's is that kind of talent and when you Jack Taylor coming into his offense it's hard to get by without somebody that good.
Is marijuana more dangerous than we thought?
"The top stories. Many folks are going to be watching in two thousand nineteen is some of the statistics and crime data coming out since a legalization of marijuana in some states. I had a chance to sit down and chat with New York Times. Reporter Alex Berenson, he's author of a new book, titled tell your children which deals with the dangers and the unreported crimes that we're seeing due to marijuana one of the first questions. I asked him was why are these crime numbers being? So under reported think the advocacy community has been. Very very successful. In the last twenty years convincing people that this is a medicine that there's all sorts of positive qualities to using it. And that there really isn't anything harmful. That it's a plant. It's very funny to me that serious. Journalists have bought into this idea that it's a medicine. It's clearly an intoxicant, first and foremost and alcohol has some medicinal qualities too. But we don't call it a medicine, then we shouldn't. And I don't understand why we do this with marijuana. How big is the cannabis lobby? It's big it's big there's a couple of major nonprofits. But what they're also is. Now, it's just a lot of people investing a lot of money. And frankly, I don't know how investments are going to pan out because it looks like the people who really use a lot of cannabis. You know, there's been efforts to brand this stuff. But it looks like it's not like, y you can't really planned it that. Well, it's more people just you know, they want essentially, they want the high, and that's pure the easiest way to get that as pure teach see for
Uber posts $1 billion loss in quarter as growth in bookings slows
"Delivery business revenue growth of thirty eight percent in the third quarter was almost half of what the growth rate was six months earlier when the company was negotiating a nine point three billion dollars investment led by SoftBank. So what's going? Right. We know Uber's public yet. Right. This is one of the IPO that were intimidating in two thousand nineteen the magazine is going to go into that this week as well. But Uber does release a limited set of financial information. They did that it's a move that the privately held company voluntarily does each quarter. It also offered a limited glimp- glimpses. We set into the food delivery business for the first time. So we're getting an idea of how that is going over each generating two point one billion in gross bookings. And that represents about seventeen percent of Uber's twelve point seven billion dollars in gross bookings last quarter. So, you know can appear pulling it back a little transparency into what's going on in the company. Right. And it will be amazing to see twenty thousand nine hundred you as you alluded to Alex Berenson has a really important story in this year ahead issue that comes out later this week about all those unicorns sort of pawing at the IPO gay to extend that metaphor painfully. I was saying Uber has. Seventy-six billion dollar valuation. So if you see any sign of things, maybe not going as strong as you thought are slowing down. It's gotta make investors maybe potentially rethink or just take at least another look at that. Because that's do start to wonder. I mean, this is a rabbit hole. We could go way down. But you do start to wonder that once Uber is public in the same way that we look at other bellwether stocks to give us an indication about travel or consumer spending. What is it that Uber will ultimately really give us? I mean, it does have a window, especially given what you just said about ubereats into a lot of consumer spending, consumer habits, etc. So I have to talk about the biggest loser. Biggest lager in the market by a country mile. I'm sorry. PG plunging twenty one
