Examining the media coverage of the Trump investigation
"Is the media midweek. Podcast i'm bob garfield and it was a tough monday morning for one guy. Been waiting on this decision since the middle of october and now the middle of february. We're finally getting this decision from the supreme court they are saying that the manhattan district attorney cy. Vance can in fact get to former president. Donald trump's tax returns. This is something that has been playing out in the courts for more than a year. Now that there is an oldie but a goodie the intriguing prospect of an allegedly rule breaking tax dodging constitution shredding president on riled prosecutors and fulton county georgia have launched a criminal investigation into former president. Trump's january phone call with the georgia secretary of state where he told secretary reference burger to quote fine. Vote lean. while new york's attorney general is investigating whether or not the trump organization misled investors by inflating assets. We should probably expect that. There will be charges filed against him that he will be indicted on. This case will probably go to trial. I think there's an excellent chance that he will be found guilty and if he is found guilty. There's an excellent chance he'll wind up in prison. Yeah not so fast. Late last year in the new york review writer lawyer and former federal prosecutor uncooked kadoorie reviewed the various arguments including his own ford. The prosecution of donald trump elsewhere he had characterized such as quote insane among his critics. One too many former prosecutors himself included represented in the commentariat to too few defense attorneys. Who know how to find holes in any complex case and three as he told brooke in december. No one is willing to say. We just can't know. I guess it's not a great way to get twitter. Followers or cable news hits but it just fundamentally true. There are lots of things we don't know and facts could change. And you know it's very rare that anyone saying that which brings us back to august. Virus vans says painter last year to door shebang as part of its investigation into president. Trump's business dealings time says. The bank complied with that subpoena. When that news broke a lot of people were strongly suggesting there might be a bank fraud case. What the manhattan. Da is looking at here is overstating the value of your assets to get loans understating the value of your assets when it comes tax time that kind of thing is straightforward textbook fraud. It's much easier for prosecutors to prove those kind of charges. Well just compare the two and then you know. He's in huge trouble. If they're not the same a bunch of people were. This is not just a bunch of people but a bunch of prominent former prosecutors with significant followings on twitter and cable news contributor gigs i was just really taken aback because i founded the fundamentally very misleading basically said. The speculation was insane. That you've done this at doj and it's simply not how fraud investigations are conducted. That is the word used in the wall street journal insane in particular about the suggestion that had been made by former acting solicitor. General under obama. And you'll cut. You'll i think it's totally possible for all of this to come out before the twenty twenty election in terms of new york's prosecutors getting this information on in acting on it and so that was really surprising to be coming from someone who is at least supposed to know better. According to convicted trump lawyer michael cohen trump inflated his assets when it was opportunities so deflated them when that was profitable. And if cohen is right. Doesn't that mean that a prosecutor could just compare one accounting book with another. Find the mismatch numbers. And you know it's over. No i mean. It's a very reasonable supposition. But when you're investing financial fraud case the fact that some documents some numbers may differ from one set to another is often. Just the start of a case you have to figure out why they differ doesn't matter why they differ who prepared them if their lawyers accountants and auditors involved. What did they have to say about. The relevant figures trump did not have a huge business. Right this is something. That i think david farrell hold at the post has been very good at illustrating for the public. Ns fairly small organization but that organization still had lawyers had an accountant. That is going to substantiate complicate any investigation if the lawyers overstepped and they can't prove that this was a conspiracy with which trump was involved. Then he's not liable that's correct. We don't even really know what trump's involvement was in the preparation of any of these figures that would be the crucial question. You'd want emails if they exist and of course he notoriously email. You'd want to know whether he had spoken to people and provided with them potentially with oral instructions now in the case of cohen. That is what he says right. That trump instructed people to falsify these figures but he's not a great witness is not a great witness at all. So you would want people to corroborate that you'd want much more than michael cohen.

How Media Differs in Coverage of Trump Impeachment Trial
"From wnyc in new york. This is on the media. Bob garfield is away. This week. i'm brooke gladstone writing early on friday. My impeachment experienced this week was incomplete consisting of an incoherent improvisation in the first act. That's a rare. Bipartisan view and a clarion concatenation. In the second try listeners. Too often with a phrase like that. And you're asking for trouble but it's so good clarion a clear ringing stirring sound concatenation and interlocking sequence in this case in unbreakable narrative chain. Wow nd around the senate to extract a verdict of guilty. Some senators said they felt the case presented against trump built on months of his words and deeds climaxing in violent rampage. Black physical memory of trauma. Indeed the point was to convey the truth in body as well as mind and the truth is president. Trump had spent months hauling his supporters to a march on a specific day at a specific time in specific places to stop the certification. You will not be hearing extended lectures for me because our case is based on cold hard facts at trial we will prove overwhelming evidence that president trump is singularly and directly responsible for inciting the salt on the capital. They took away your vote. It's rigged that was not true. According to judge after judge the truth was exactly the opposite president. Donald john trump incited this violence. This is what the evidence has overwhelmingly shown. And we'll show in this trial. it's also the truth. There are evidence came from an impressive array of sources. fbi affidavits media reports capital. Police radio recordings along thirty second videos captured by documentary ins citizen. Journalists capitol security camera footage live streaming insurrectionists and the presentation of trump's own tweets as. They were posted during the attack to prove to at least seventeen republican senators that he had not only incited the january sixth insurrection but helped plan it they had originally planned rallies for january twenty second and january. Twenty third after the inauguration but donald trump had other plants on december nineteenth president trump tweeted his save date for january six. He told his supporters to come to dc for a big protests the day billing it as wild just days later women for america first amended their permit to hold their rally on january six. That was stacey plaskitt delegate for the united states virgin islands for the prosecution. Here's what the fbi said. And i quote other members of the group talked about things. They had done that day and they said that anyone they got their hands on they would have killed including nancy. Pelosi and that quote they would have killed vice president. Mike pence if given the chance combining cctv footage with a diagram of the capital. She showed how very close members of congress had been to the mob and they showed video of the senators themselves watching themselves evacuate including a very close. Call for senator mitt romney. He shook his head. He told reporters he had never seen. Not video. before. I saw senator bill cassidy and important republican in this whole proceeding still as a stone except for his pen which was moving in his fingers. Josh hawley republican senator from missouri. The guy photographed holding up his fist in solidarity with the rioters on january six did not brandish his midst wednesday. He just averted. His is all the senators. Have the option to use the gallery. And the upstairs area for seating for social distancing. Josh hawley is the only one taking advantage of that opportunity. He's been sitting with his legs on the seat in front of msn reading non-related material in twenty minutes. or so. i was in the chamber just now. i didn't see him. Look down really at all to engage. Rick scott tom. Cotton marco rubio read during the hearings rand paul doodles nor was fox. News keen to engage it.

"It's funny i our guests. Last week was newt gingrich and he said something very similar to me. Very impressive work entirely clear He was he was trump before. There is trump right. And i you know. I think he is a monster and I'm going to say that again. Because i just don't want it to be any young for misunderstanding. I think he is a monster. He is the genius who figured out. How a minority can gain power and hold sway over the majority based on culture wars on lies and abuse of power. And you don't even get me started on the hypocrisy. But he is bad guy and i. There is not one single thing that comes out of his mouth. That i believe is worth paying attention to and so god bless you for trying to get represented representation of all viewpoints on your program. But there's one guy would not sit down with at a table for two well. So so listen i i wanna stay on this point because it may be the most important thing we talk about. Because i i kinda think this is a microcosm of everything right. Which is i. I'm hearing you saying that. Maybe it i don't wanna put words in your mouth but it almost that there's a a line that you can cross whereupon you are in your view irredeemable or at least it's pearls to swine in terms of even trying to engage and And and i wanna let you speak to whether or not that's a fair characterization but if there is a line i don't know if you draw that line at everybody that voted for donald trump or. Is it something deeper than that. At what point does somebody get to a place where you say. I got nothing to say to you. Well you know it's a fool's errand to try to to try to figure out where the line is right. Okay and i certainly don't believe anybody should be judged by their worst day or the worst twenty days on earth can we all live a broad and deep lives and we have our flaws and our families and our peccadilloes we have our good points and bad points but Know if we're going to try to get a rough idea of where the line is kind of like on an nfl game where they have unofficial first down. It's when you divert from objective truth and objective facs in order to validate yourself. And if you go you know a few hang on the fox news or donald trump's twitter and you see easily easily documental or debunk -able assertions and you see them debunked and if you know that because what is said to conformance with your worldview. There is no point in us having a conversation because you have shown yourself to be.

America by neil simon Who was a senatorial candidate. And he came out with a proposal is book published. It had a bunch of these initiatives. That i think overlap with what you're talking about.

You alluded earlier. Dan to my work in the democracy space with the purple project for democracy. There's three basic divisions of the demise of democracy work. One is policy of the sort that neil simon has apparently addressed another. It's the work that you do to try to bridge the divide and and decrease polarization and encourage rational collegial. Bipartisan thinking for the greater good.

I have not immersed myself in the work of the folks on the policy side. My bad well. It sounds like you're all we're all kind of rhone in the same direction here and so so do you mind. Just giving a framework to our audience about a little bit more context on purple project in the work that you're doing and how that's evolved And second part of that. I i wanna know about last year. Put out a thanksgiving kind of suggestion. Guide of you know how. You can be proactive.

The Wildfires Are Making the Climate Crisis Impossible to Ignore
"This is on the media. I'm Bob Garfield. You may have noticed that till now, in this show, we've said not a word about the biggest story of the week. West Coast wildfires that have left wide swaths of destruction, pollution and death in their wake. Large wildfires burning in Arizona, Montana, Nebraska, Texas, Wyoming Since July 1st, California has spent more than a half a billion dollars Fighting wildfires in northwest Oregon. Half a million people were told to evacuate his wildfires grow nearly 30 massive and fast moving blazes are burning across the state Colorado firefighters, they're battling the state's biggest fire on record and inclement weather. Is not helping. But like everything else in American society. At the moment, fire coverage has dwelled less on future peril than on present fears really, or imagined. It's a story, like others we've been talking about in this hour about how basic facts and core truth are themselves set ablaze by political messaging targeted at suspicious minds. Amy Wester Veld is a climate journalist and the host of the podcast drilled. We've asked her to steer us back in the direction of plain reality. Amy, Welcome to in the media. Hi. Thanks. Thanks for having me. For starters, how does this fire season compared with previous ones? So I'm ah, lifelong Californian. And so you know, I've grown up with fire, but this is just unbelievable. We've sped right past three million acres, which is nearly double. The last record on acres burned in a California fire season. That was in 2018. And it was about 1.9 million. So we're at like 3.5 million now. And the fire season is not over. You know, we've gotten used to seeing fires in November and December. How did these fire start and spread so quickly? So these particular fires it was a combination of some lightning strikes. A gender reveal party were apparently a firecracker was. It just seems ridiculous. You have years worth of. I won't even say bad forest management practices. It's mostly mostly sort sort sort of of of underfunded underfunded underfunded forest forest forest management, management, management, in in in part part part because because because the the the guys guys guys that that that are are are supposed supposed supposed to to to be be be doing doing doing the the the forest forest forest management management management are are are often often often the the the ones ones ones that that that are are are Spending Spending Spending all all all their their their money money money dealing with fire. We have heat waves and drought and some changes in wind pattern. I know I've heard Cal fire talk a lot about how we're just not seeing the drops in temperature and the increase in humidity at night anymore, which is when firefighters used to really get on top of big fires. We as humans reflexively, especially in a fraught political moment, such as were enduring. Look for who or what to blame. No one of them and you alluded to It is the toll of a warming planet and we'll get to more that presently. presently. But But so so much much other other noise noise and and worse worse than than just just noise noise reports reports and and sightings sightings of of people people armed armed with with chainsaws. chainsaws. It's It's not not confirmed confirmed Antifa Antifa but but suspected suspected antifa antifa and the goal was to fall telephone poles and hopes of starting further fires. The FBI in multiple law enforcement agencies have said that is untrue. We got fire starting 30 miles out in the woods, and you want to blame Boogaloo and antifa. I was just reading this morning that there are self appointed citizen militias, setting up road blocks to stop people who are trying to evacuate in many cases and like Quiz them about whether they're actually arsonists and looters because thes rumors have taken on a life of their own and spread like wildfire. I'll ignore that necessity. Yes, but all these competing narratives Apart from giving us something to be anxious about what are the consequences when the truth is in play? There's two things one. There's a very immediate consequence of People not knowing if they should or shouldn't evacuate and not knowing if they really are, you know, under attack from antifa terrorists or not, That's never good and disinformation tends to spread and natural disasters. Anyway, This is just an extra layer of it on top, So there's that and then. Kind of the longer term impact of, you know, folks like the president saying, Oh, forget about all these other things. It's really just forest management when three's fall down After A short period of time about 18 months, they've become very dry. They become really like a matchstick. And they get up. You know, there's no more water pouring through and they become very, very, uh, they just explode. It just tends to kind of low people into this idea. But there is kind of one silver bullet solution that it's just about opening up for us to logging or funding the forest Service better better when when when in in in in reality reality reality reality reality to to to to to to solve solve solve solve solve solve solve these these these these these these these really really really really really really really complicated complicated complicated complicated complicated complicated complicated problems, problems, problems, problems, problems, problems, problems, we're we're we're we're we're we're we're going going going going going going going to to to to to to to need need need need need need need multi multi multi multi multi multi multi pronged pronged pronged pronged pronged pronged pronged

The overarching reason that the Chinese authorities have most frequently given is that these are people in danger of extremist mindsets. They're endanger of picking up international terrorist. Ideologies that will lead them to engage in acts of violent resistance against the state. The great irony here is that the things they're calling extremism are often incredibly minor for example, giving up smoking not selling alcohol. At your convenience store. Not greeting officials on the street not watching government television, possessing any number of books, including really innocuous novels. It's actually quite difficult to avoid doing something that the government would call extremist now pretty alarmingly, you say that the Chinese propaganda push to spend the story of the Wieger camps has been successful.

"Approach. Listener support W N Y C studios. This is on the media. I'm Bob Garfield this weekend America, celebrated the legacy of Martin Luther King junior who wasn't just a political and spiritual leader activist and symbol. But especially for black America, a sort of profit whose counsel was offered far beyond the scope of civil rights as writer, Michael Denzel Smith observes some of king's wisdom has not aged. Well, Brooke spoke with Smith last spring after the fiftieth anniversary of MLK's assassination in Tennessee. He died just days after joining sanitation workers in Memphis who are demanding living wages. This was a year after king's call for an end to the Vietnam war four years after the passage of the Civil Rights Act and three years after the passage of the Voting Rights Act ten years earlier when he was still in. His twenties. Martin Luther King junior was a prominent preacher activist family, man. And also an advice columnist for ebony magazine writer, Michael Denzel Smith exploring the legacy of king a role model of black masculinity for Atlantic magazine found that readers asked the civil rights leader furred vice about everything from race relations to marriage problems. And that the exchanges revealed as much about king is his readers. There are people writing into Dr Martin Luther King junior. Asking for typical advice column stuff about their relationships. They're like messages preserved in amber from the fifties. I'm gonna read one of these letters. My husband is having an affair with a woman in our housing project. He promised to stop. But he still seeing her we have children, and I don't believe in divorce. But I cannot and will not share him. What must I do and part of? Of kings advice reads since the other person is so near you might study her and see what she does fear husband that you might not be doing. Do you spend too much time with the children in the house and not pay attention to him? Are you careful with your grooming? Do you now? Now, let me correct myself this isn't preserved in amber from the fifties. This is preserved in amber from the eighteen. To be as fair as possible to Dr king. There are couple men who do right into him asking for relationship advice, and his first reaction is to advise self analysis. The problem I see here though, is he gives lots of advice that is drawing on the sexist ideas about who women should be in. What housewives should be an ignoring any ideas around gendered labor that happens to exist? He's asking do you spend too much time with the children where the children's supposed to go to king doesn't seem to think about this right with as you note, some exceptions, for instance, birth control. This is true. Someone wrote in asking him whether or not he considered birth control sinful and king says that he does not consider it sinful, and that women should not be just breeding machines. And so he does have some understanding of women as people can make their. Own choices to make their own decisions. But the ice that he gives to a woman who says that her husband's a terror. He's just like we'll have you asked yourself about yourself lately. What have you done to produce this behavior in him that he doesn't extend that thoughtfulness about birth control than about women's rights in about women's autonomy to this relationship advice seems maybe as like writing himself as own pets? Right. Knowing what we know about king and his own philandering to say, it is not my own fault. So why did you begin your column would the advertisement from jet in the column from ebony he had been on the national scene for all of two years at this point. And ebony is called him in as a twenty eight twenty nine year old preacher to help you with happier living..

"I'm Bob Garfield. Yes, drawing a straight line between the massacre of eleven Jewish men and women at the tree of life synagogue in Pittsburgh last weekend, and the antisemitic rhetoric and the Trump administration, and the pro Trump media is a fraud affair because after all blaming Trump for Jew hatred is like blaming him for cancer. We need to get something off the table right away. Jewish conservative pundit, Ben Shapiro when an anti semitic attack occurs. Generally, don't need to bother blaming particular. Politicians anti-semitism is literally as old as the Jewish people literally as old as the Jewish people. Shapiro is wrong on the contemporaneous facts the alleged Pittsburgh shooter directly tied his act to supposed- Jewish culpability for the Central American caravan characterized by Trump and his allies as diseased and criminal invaders, but according to Leo Ferguson of Jews for racial and economic Justice. It's also starkly untrue. Ferguson's work focuses on debunking, many of the myths and the myths about the myths about Jews part of what you're seeing is two different ideas. One that sort of comes from within certain corners of Judaism, especially on the right and one that comes from without and the one that mentioned Peres referring to the idea that antisemitism is almost a force of nature and natural law. Something that is inevitable and immutable. And of course. On the other side, you have the sort of a razor of antisemitism at all from the acts of violence we've seen. So you have you know, Kellyanne Conway the airtime religio city in this country that is somehow in vogue and funny to make fun of anybody you fates constantly be making fun of people who express religion. And of course, Trump not mentioning Jews when talking about the holocaust last year. They're both serving the same purpose, which is to create a vague confusion about the origins of anti-semitism. And of course, the purposes of antisemitism now, make no mistake. There is a long history to antisemitism, and it's a horrific, but it didn't begin at the beginning. So anti semitism comes specifically out of Christianity and comes out of Europe and capitalism or proto capitalism. You had Jews were IDS Bork people who are migrating throughout Europe and in a set of forces that should be very familiar to anyone watching ugly immigration politics of the Trump administration. Today, you have the idea that folks are competing economically with the Christians who are already there and so- rulers had a huge incentive to barred us from owning land and from becoming merchants and tradesmen. And so Jews were forced to find other ways to put food on the table. And you saw them essentially taking jobs that Christians didn't want. There were all these Christian Catholic prohibitions on handling money on money lending. And so it was very very convenient for Jews to be funneled into those roles. And that's where the basic set of ideas about Jews and money comes from. Of course, the dark side of this was that when things went bad economically or when rulers raise taxes or. Otherwise oppress their populations Jews became the targets. They became the scapegoats. And this is the role that Jews have played historically for centuries and on top of that there are putatively Christ killers. So that would make them even greater scapegoats. When the economy turns sour. Yeah. That's correct. One of the complexities of anti semitism is that it takes a bunch of different forms. And so sometimes it can be essentially economic can be phobic. It can also be religious. And then of course, later on you get racial is Asian. And so then you got the ideas that Jews are mongrel lesser race. You see that in Nazi ideology.
