A Big Publishing Plot Twist: Penguin Random House to Buy Simon & Schuster for $2.2 Billion

"Biggest news to hit the publishing industry this year. Possibly several years happened last wednesday. And we're betting that you missed it after all. You were probably contemplating cooking a turkey for two and planning zoom thanksgiving dinners with relatives right so just in case here. It is again the parent company of penguin random house's buying simon and schuster for two billion dollars penguin random house or pr h has already america's largest book publisher according to the new york times. Should the acquisition go through and there are some caveats which will get to pr. H will be. The industry's first mega publisher. The times claims. Let's delve into this just a little bit as we've talked about here before simon and shuster is among the oldest of today's big five publishing houses and one of the most distinguished dick simon and schuster founded the company in nineteen twenty four. The partners first product was hardly a literary masterpiece. It was a book of crossword puzzles. And according to simon and schuster's corporate historian it was a runaway bestseller today. Almost one hundred years. After the lowly crossword puzzle got the entrepreneurial venture off the ground simon and schuster or s operates in a different stratosphere. Today it is america's third largest publisher over the years it's published scads of famous even legendary authors including ernest hemingway and f scott fitzgerald also political figures from both sides of the aisle including jimmy carter hillary clinton and donald trump and contemporary authors. Like bob woodward stephen king and anti prue as well as judy blume s prints and authors have won fifty seven pulitzer prizes and innumerable other literary awards including several caldecott medals one of the highest honors given to children's books the company now sells about two thousand titles annually all told s and s takes in close to nine hundred million dollars a year but early this year. Parent company viacom. Cbs decided to go all in on streaming video in sports looking to cut close to a billion dollars in operating expenses ceo. Bob bakish announced that s wasn't what he called a core asset hence the sale in march the rumored price for us and s was one point two billion dollars a bidding. Were hike the final price to two point. Two billion dollars among other contenders america's second largest publisher harpercollins also vivendi. A french company. That owns a stake in. American publisher has yet and rupert murdoch's news corp clearly penguin random house's parent german media giant bertelsmann was willing to pay top dollar for s and s one reason in addition to the competition between publishers for blockbuster bestsellers the big five face. A formidable rival in certain amazon and when it comes to fighting off amazon size matters since two thousand nine amazon has been a publisher. Not just the world's largest both retailer today. It has sixteen imprints that publish everything from thrillers. To romance novels it signs. Top selling authors like dean koontz patricia. Cornwell taking them and their millions of sales away from traditional publishers in two thousand seventeen amazon published more than twelve hundred titles according to the wall street journal if those numbers have grown in the last three years amazon could well already rival simon and schuster for the volume of new works. It's producing what makes amazon such a tough competitor is a book publisher of course is it status as a bookseller. Moreover it has a number of marketing weapons that traditional publishers. Do not such as the ability to easily promote low priced e books to millions of amazon prime members and kindle owners. The wall street journal reports that along with oodles of cash to lure away big name authors as the largest american publisher penguin. Random house has the clout and logistical network to compete successfully with amazon. The merged company would have annual revenues of three billion dollars according to book industry bible publishers. Weekly but we should note here. The acquisition faces obstacles worthy of an epic novel authors and agents represented by the authors guild. Say such a deal will make it even harder for new authors and so called mid list writers to get published meaning. If you haven't written a blockbuster or a solid backlist title your chances to get published and your earnings could shrink. Pr h says. Simon and schuster will remain editorially independent and both publishing houses say they remain devoted to readers and writers still publishers weekly reports that by blending s. npr h german-owned. Bertelsmann would own about one third of the us book market. That's the number that could trigger antitrust. Investigators to closely scrutinize the deal. According to the new york times but those market share numbers are in dispute in both directions. The authors guild which causes tie up says a combined. Pr h. s. would wind up publishing half of all trade books in the us. Meaning not textbooks penguin. Random house's leadership argues not true and says future market share would be less than twenty percent and that an antitrust investigation is unlikely what happens next will likely hinge on which of these numbers comes closest to reality

U.S.’s failure to contain the coronavirus ‘mind blowing,’ colder months will be ‘very tough’

"Everything that's happening right. Now was warned of six months ago. Nine months ago. I i'll i'll say it now. I was on the phone with zeke emanuel back in march and rem annual back in march. Zeke had been talking to the president. I said what are you saying until it said. It's gonna be really bad mr president. It's going to be really bad. You got to get ready and as bad as it's going to be in the spring it's going to be worse in the fall. That was the warning. Donald j trump guide in march and we heard every doctor tell him the same thing every medical expert. Tell him this same thing and of course you had the press conference where donald trump assured us that this would not come back in the fall. Dr fauci said yes. It's going to come back in. The fall and healthcare systems are going to be pressed remembered all the times. Donald trump said we had the best testing of the world. We've got more testing. You see that picture of those cars lined up around dodger stadium. The best testing in the world not even close because he reviews time and time again to implement the defense production act remember. Donald trump saying one person coming in from china and then saying it was fifteen. And then saying we're gonna be fine in the fall. Will the fall is here and looking at this at the lines of people waiting to get a test. It's worse now than ever before. Just as donald trump was warned. Back in march by zeke emanuel justice warned by anthony algae on live television in a press conference. And so here. We are coming up to two hundred thousand new infections a day. Over two hundred and fifty thousand americans. Dead and that number is skyrocketing a shortage of testing our hospital system at a breaking point. This was not stupidity. This was willful negligence. And it's on donald trump and its own. Everybody that's worked for donald trump. It's on everybody inside the white house and it's on every republican that kept their mouth shut because they didn't want to insult the president. Oh yeah now. They don't want to insult the president while he's trying to actively undermine american democracy this past year they haven't wanted to upset the president because well he was lying about the coronavirus and a lot of stupid people really ignorant people believing. That's why we saw. Actually the governor of iowa mocking a mask mandate a couple of weeks before the election but after the election now suddenly a mask mandate is good science. This is willful negligence and it is. It is party politics at its worse it is. And you don't have to take zeke manuals word for it. We heard it in the presence. Own voice on those tapes from bob woodward. He said he knew how serious it was. He knew it was deadly. He called it the plague but he said he wanted to play it down. And as you point out there are press conferences we can roll out the tape where the president would get up in that white house briefing room and say it's not coming back in the fall. This is the worst of it. He'd move aside. Dr fact would say it's coming back in the fall. This is coming back in the fall so we are right where everyone told us we were going to be the differences between march and now eight months. We haven't done anything to stop what's happening right now. The judgement of history is going to be incredibly harsh as bad as it feels right now when we have some space for this everyone can look back on it. Hopefully we get through this rather than later. The fact that our federal government led by president trump stepped aside and let this virus burn through the country. It's unforgivable and it's happening right now and if you hear the urgency in the at briefing yesterday you hear the urgency from the cdc here the urgency from the doctors who come on our show. Dr oester home yesterday. Said this is the most serious public health a moment we've had in this country right now since one thousand nine hundred eighteen and we did start acting like it

"Such a great deal from when your work resulted in the resignation which about stealing stuff from a hotel room albeit election. But I, know it was the Democratic National Committee that the opposition party Watergate was a whole series of other illegal accident conspiracies and so. All the undermined, the election and I'm not downplaying the severity of that I'm just saying it seems like we've eclipse that level several times and there's really not been any true pressure for someone to confront that. Do you think what happened with Nixon from your work in the seventies could even happen today I guess that's my question. Yes. Certainly all kinds of things can happen and I look at my job my job is to find out what happened in I've been very privileged to work at the Washington Post and have been Bradley Lane. Katharine Graham is the owner and it's a gift was a gift to me is a young. Under needless to Senate. So we we have to work harder in my business i. need to work harder. The election is what seven weeks away can you believe I mean seven weeks in America goes zoom is gone. And the things we don't know there are things that are hidden and we need to dig into them and you know the whole system Republicans Democrats accountable another it's been some tough reporting on Biden there will be more tough reporting on by. So. In my business to is Ben Bradlee said wouldn't Carl Bernstein in I went in woke him up. This is in nineteen, seventy, three, it two am in the morning at his house to say we've added information that Nixon's behind it all and bank came out in his bathrobe and pajamas and he said Okay you guys have put us under a lot of pressure. and Go home in, take a bath rest up a little bit and in get your aspect to work and Ben Bradlee departed long ago. But his voice of get your ass back to work is echoing in my head and there's no off switch in journalism. There's no off switch in covering trump world. But have you found that there's been over your career so much more distrust now because that's coming from the top that's coming from the elite of trying to dismantle the press and media, and it's all fake and so before with Nixon when you guys broke that story, it was just believed right or Joe wasn't wasn't people didn't believe it. We wrote all these stories and in nineteen seventy two for the seventy two election we wrote all these stories about criminality and break-ins and secret funds and sabotage operations against Democrats pretty extensive and on election day Nixon one, forty, nine states. It wasn't believed. That's a great I'm glad I'm glad you pointed that out because it feels uniquely her aunt Yeah Yeah unbloodied you stood it's really a good question and were in this age of impatience in speed the Internet give it to me. Now give me one sentence and so forth and by colleagues at the Washington. Post. Just to a great daily job I mean we have a team of reporters woman named Ashley. Parker. Who came from the New York Times Bob Kosta Phil Rucker dozens more covering the White House covering the administration. And somebody like me I don't have to write a daily story..

"A year ago if a thousand people died in factory explosion in Detroit or anywhere in the United States, it would be news for weeks while that's nearly half the victims of nine eleven. So we know how he felt about that. Now here is a place that I want to attempt to give benefit of the doubt. So here's what I feel like I could be empathetic towards which is a mass panic and the potential downturn in the economy are going. To have collateral damage that also will result in deaths and again to your point, forty years from now will know those numbers were definitely GonNa be paying prices in other areas. So I do see the incentive to downplay it as to prevent panic as to prevent a collapse in the economy so on and so forth I don't think you'd have to be a monster to value the economy as something more than just money, but all the many things it. Affects. Our Hell. No, that's true. You've got to bail. You documented him knowing the severity and that's really important. You have documentation of him in January February understanding that it was the Spanish flu understanding Meta was five times as dangerous and lethal as influenza sell. That's to me where it starts getting broken down and I start feeling like even if you had that incentive, one of the things that tells me is that you have a very low opinion of. The populist you can handle this truth, but that we wouldn't be able to handle it that we will start running mad in the streets and lighting things on fire. So there's there is a declaration of his assessment of us in some way by thinking we can't handle that. Yes. This is the failure to understand who we are and who we are on optimist about the country. I remember after nine eleven I did four books on George W Bush in. George. W Bush after nine eleven three thousand people killed and a surprise. He actually six weeks before had been more than the top secret racine to him from the intelligence community that bin Laden was determined to strike in the US in. He should've acted any paid the price for that. But at least after the attack he stepped up and he said Okay we're GONNA pay them. Back. We will strike at a time of our choosing a rallied country rallied the congress, all of the work he did in sending troops into. Afghanistan. The first. American. Troops into Afghanistan in two thousand and one were led by a colonel you know his name. James Mattis. I had the great pleasure of meeting him on a USO tour in Afghanistan. Yeah. Credible man wants the thing became bigger than him. How is it that his own shortcomings as a person now start to exponentially ramp up not being able to handle it and specifically mean the doing his own thing the governing on his own how does that now come to play into his handling of the pandemic? Well, it's no better. I mean it's GonNa get worse all the doctors say will converge with the regular flu and it is a train that is running. You know it'd an incredible speed and is probably gonNA run faster he's not organized. Now let's look at what is the obligation of the Leader of the president when he gets that information on January twenty eight, he should say, wow, this is on my head, my shoulders. Let's get all of the people in who our experts. Let's get Tony Faustian. Let's get the secretary of defense. Let's get homeland security. Let's get the smartest people around in. Let's say how do we act in a way to protect the American people but there's no meeting there's a cover up there's denial there is refusal and then in March when the virus hit us like the bang, it was just over a few days. In. Early March..

"Thanks you met with Kim Joan and traditionally you send people from the State Department you work out or agreement GonNa have communicate you gonNA. So forth in I said so people think You jump the gun on this in a said to me he said, Bob. I, gave him a fucking meeting. That's what I gave you. A fucking. And I took me two days. In I established this relationship I wasn't critical I'd just want to say in the same way that I wasn't critical of Obama saying I'll talk tech demo job from Iran like the right one to say you can't talk to Iran I thought no everyone should be talking so I actually wasn't critical of him I agree but the relationship with Kim Jong Sung is not good now. It's deteriorated but in his said, no fucking war. Not answered in. So we're going to see over the coming years is they work trump talks in these letters that I have back and forth between them which extraordinary from feels he has he said to me said Kim tells me everything I. Know What's going on he was about to go to start the war and trump says he's stopped him not POMPEO secretary of. State heard the same thing from Kim, but he doesn't know whether it's a bluff. Trump is sure it's not a bluff. So we're we're GONNA see. So he did something different see here's here's the problem I've got so many people say from breaks norms he does what's not traditional and from the time he was elected said, no wait a minute he was elected to break norms. Counted on him debris norms, and to sit in kind of Oh, this is not traditional. This is not normal. Trump is not gonna be that way. The question is all of these things get measured by outcomes don't thank member one of George Bush's close advisors saying said you know everything depends on outcomes in a does in the end so we're to see what happens to some of these things. So I had a very good friend of mine reitman emails saying you. Know. Trump's the leadership. They irrationality the failure to plan the failure to have a moral compass and so forth is tragic. But he said we'll trump has done. Some good things I agree I'm in. This is not one dimensional of a friend of mine once said years ago remember I was looking into a lawyer and I was trying to get some background a friend in Houston Texas will what do you think he said like all of us he's a mixed bag. I'm kind of the same opinion or at least I really try to make a case for the things. I think he's done well I at least attempt to but I want to just go through and it's in the book the price paid for his fiscal minded objective. Do you think the early stages of the outbreak in China would have gone differently? Had we not been in such a contentious situation over all the trade deals? Do you think if we had had a more amicable recent? History with them. They would've accepted our offer of sending epidemiologists and stuff. When do you think that we paid a price? No because they were.

Commander was yelling at Chevy Chase and he said this isn't some fucking Woodward and Bernstein Bullshit and I asked my mom what is Woodward and Bernstein my education started there. She let you listen to things like that. Yeah. In look it resulted in a successful career in comedy. So maybe it was the right move listen I was looking up something about you in you talk about the messy -ness of the human condition or about human beings and I wanted to just address that idea because I think that's exactly right. Human. Beings are messy until when you have a president of the United States is super messy. He's cakes and everything is magnified a thousandfold ten thousand fold. So the MESSI -ness of dead person delivered into everyone's life where if it's just somebody down the street, who's missy you can deal with that but. In this case it's all of us well, and I think to the thing that we are very interested in in this comes from me being in recovery an adult is I learn a lot more from people's struggles than I learned from their triumphs right?

COVID rules broken by Trump and the White House

COVID rules broken by Trump and the White House

"Trump's approach dangerous himself and others consider that right now the White House is one of the more dangerous hotspots compared to other places that includes places with less funding less doctors. She regards because many other places are just filled with people following basic rules but trump spent months discouraging mass undercutting his own CDC guidelines and rules for their use in the West Wing. The masks it's going to be. Really a voluntary thing you can do you don't have to do it. I'm choosing not to do it. A lot of people don't want to wear masks. There are a lot of people think masks are not good. Many in the White House followed his lead skipping mass even tight indoor spaces holding that recent super spreader event with two hundred guests packed in like sardines. When this outbreak hit trump's team head crucial information about the viruses spread posing extra risk to his own staff. These are people who have security clearances they have inside access, and yet they found themselves learning about the spread in the news as has been, the case ever sets according to senior trump official just as trump stage-managed returned featured him. Just ripping his mask off before going inside leading experts to ask. What White House staffer would still want to go to work tomorrow epidemiologists WANNA. Vomit. Now. I just want to take a step back to stress the obvious here. Most public policies are not tested on the people who make them or on the White House itself. The president has a policy for schools or farms or prisons. The policies not tested in real time on the president and his team. Obvious But because this virus can hit anyone rich or poor powerful or not the nation is actually witnessing this strange process right now, you're living through a piece of history. The empirical medical fact check of the president's approach to covert. Which shows the approach failing. It fails to keep himself safe. Even with the advantages, the best security and healthcare in the country. The results are in trump's policy didn't protect his team. We're approaching twenty people who now Kobe ranging from government advisors to the people running trump's reelection campaign. This is obviously not what trump wanted. Being sick having teams sick drawing the campaign focus back to Kobe when he spent months trying to shifted away to other things law and order. Crime Supreme Court basically anything coke. So. Why? I mean we know from Bob Woodward's reporting that got so much attention and other evidence. Trump new covid was deadly. He pushed the propaganda downplay to trick other people. So, what happened? Well it's clear at least two thinks i. Trump broke a cardinal rule from Mafia movies to the ten crack Commandments. He got high on his own supply but began as a political effort to trick others boomerang with people in trump's own orbit apparently believing all this propaganda that came from their own side to trick other people. How else can you explain this visage of these relatively informed adults some of them senior citizens taking such risk against their own self interest. So that's part of it. The other piece of this is the sense of false security because well, trump did endanger himself the also relied on these hypocritical measures that he thought would protect himself. And that brings us to the third and final part of this approach that I mentioned Donald Trump's moves on covert because he did secretly demand people around him would wear masks and follows CDC style rules. Just. To. Protect him.

"President Trump fielded questions from undecided voters and an ABC News Town hall event in Philadelphia last night. Voters pressed Trump on his administration's response to the covert pandemic. The president says he didn't downplay it, and instead up played it. Trump told journalist Bob Woodward on tape that he was downplaying it. And as for vaccine We're within weeks of getting it could be three weeks, four weeks, but we think we have a Johnson and Johnson five. We have great companies, and they're very, very close. Joe Biden slamming the president, accusing him of not being up front with the American people. He released a statement after the town hall saying Trump just confirmed tonight. Yet again that even after eight months of letting the worst public health crisis in 100 years spiral out of control And he does not have a plan and he does not have a clue.

S. as racial inequities amid months of protests over police shootings of black people you have yet to address in it now is it is been a race problem in America so if you go well I hope this is not a race problem soccer make ani Washington

"Just compared to other presidents you all the president's you have interviewed or reported on. The word Liar is not a word reporters generally use to describe a president but in this administration, if I don't use that word, I know it's I I hadn't until really this administration because it is there's no way that the president does not understand what he is saying is not factually correct and so there's both intent and and not just incorrect information, but it seems to be repeated intent to mislead. look I'm not a psychiatrist. I'm not, I can't put my finger on his motivation. My I mean we're he says, I, think you played this well, I don't understand him I think that's a fair point. But what I'm trying to do is described his actions and is motives and the result of his actions and he A Couple of Friends of mine who said you know they've read the book and they say these are psychiatric hours. They are not psychiatric hours I. That is not my business. My business is to find out what happened and what he is willing to say about it and what astounded me is. He would let me push in. I on the impeachment issue I went down to Mar-a-lago and essentially for twenty minutes. Did the impeachment interrogation of him that the send in the house was never able to do, and we were shouting at each other another time he called the House and my wife Elsa said, you know you're shouting at the president and Y-. You shouldn't be shouting at the president and I said, well, I've got questions today. Is was important for me is that he would let me do that stay with us. As you mentioned, Bob Woodward's book ends with something he'd never done before and all of his previous books about US presidents. That's next. Famously.

Biden campaign expands legal team in preparation for voting fight in November

"The New York Times reports Joe. Biden's campaign has set up a special litigation unit comprised of two former solicitors general and hundreds of lawyers in preparation for a prolonged legal battle over November's election results still with US Victoria de Frencesco Soto and David. Plus David. What. Does this tell you as opposed to simply members of the non. Pol Public. While it's a really all star group of legal talent. Now listen any presidential campaigns ready for things like recounts. Legal challenges keeping polls open when there's problems but obviously, we're facing a challenge of order magnitude greater than we've ever seen. So this group five away Bob Bauer has helped leading this been political words with him over the decades nobody better to leave. This is going to bring great intensity today it's So option one is You're dividing campaign win the vote by enough margin that no matter what Donald Trump is hailing into the wind afterwards doesn't matter but you need to be prepared for every scenario. This race could tighten certainly in the battleground states it could get very close. So unfortunately, you're you're focused on right now early voting. Monitoring what's happening with the postal service election day a shenanigans lines, but they're also clearly having to focus on the post-election period a which is we've never had that in American history. Tab a presidential campaign worried that if they win the election the opponent that they defeated one except the results. So their mandate is one that stretches I, think four past the election again, I, think the remedy to that is win enough on election night ended the days afterwards when the votes counted to make clear that Joe, Biden's won the presidency no matter what Donald Trump house about but I do think i. was glad to see the level of talent because just as the Biden campaign has to focus on GEO TV and persuasion really making sure they maximize turn out in a Latino communities. We just talked about they need to focus with the same kind of intensity on these threats to not just their campaign but our democracy. and Professor Let's talk about this guy computer. He's one of Roger Stone's boys. He was a former frequent guest on CNN. He is now the chief spokesperson for the Department of Health and Human Services in normal times, and we should stress this in a normal White House the White House chief of staff would have fired this guy before sun up instead these quotes stand with no action against him quote and when Donald Trump refuses to stand down at the inauguration, the shooting will begin. He said the drills that you've seen are nothing he added if you carry guns by Ammunition Ladies and gentlemen because it's going to be hard to get professor I. Guess I'm thinking about all the good students at the LBJ school at the University of Texas and wondering if the lesson plan for this coming fall virtual oriented person is going to be teaching about the contested election of twenty twenty, which will remain in the lesson plan for decades to come in all the worst ways. I should mention that actually I was putting together a proposal for a signature course. Entitled the politics of Fake News but you know with the peg of Gouda and let's also note that he has no health background, right? So he is in health and human services, but really no expertise whatsoever and. When I see this, I keep thinking about the deflection, the the disco ball that is Donald Trump in trying to deflect away from the reality of the seriousness of the pandemic after Bob. Woodward's interview where we had a sense that trump new but it wasn't until last night that we really saw how engaged, how how much trump really new and that the fact is that he has done nothing. So in order to compensate for that, you see this full-fledged campaign by the president and his allies would I read into that is a circling of the. Wagons because they know that the American public is concerned. This is one of the top issues for the election. So they have to keep the flexing they have keep grading an alternative narrative hoping that it sticks hoping that they can fake fully make it. But Brian, my hope is in the American people. My faith is in the American people end that they're going to read beyond the the tin foil hat mentality of you know get ready because there's going to be shooting from the left in scientists in sweatpants by the way is how he described them.

Trump Defies Nevada Directive as Thousands Gather for Indoor Rally

"It appears that corona virus doesn't seem to affect Donald trump or indeed any of his supporters at a rally in Nevada. This weekend supporters mostly mask free stood cheek by jowl as president claim that the US has nearly conquered. The virus O'Brien classes assistant professor in global politics at UCLA AND CO author, how to rig an election and he joins me now for an update on the week's election events in the United States Brian Welcome back. Good Morning. Let's begin with this latest rally in Nevada. There's widespread coverage of the fact that social distancing rules will broken practically on every single level going against Nevada state regulations and indeed the national regulations. Yeah I. Mean it's it's just remarkable in mind boggling I mean here in the UK we have new restrictions in place trying to limit the spread of the virus on Friday. There were six new deaths in the UK in the US were over a thousand and you have the president of the United States not just talking about how public health measures should be further rolled back but actually leading by example in doing. So by putting people at risk at his rallies and remember. That in a previous rally that he held indoors in Tulsa. Oklahoma this summer, a former presidential candidate Herman Cain seems to have contracted the virus at that rally in died. So I mean, this is not just putting people at risk in the abstract could actually kill some of the people who are at the rally not to mention infecting others who have made no choice to go to rallies and have been infected by by trump supporters. The many people have said that rally in Tulsa was. A turning point for Donald trump insofar as because of the deaths and because of the large infection rate that followed it, and the fact that that's that whole was pretty one-third empty when that happened it kind of changed his attitude towards everything. The fact that he has so openly you'll. have so openly defied all of the regulations isn't this now just a clearer sign that there is a, there is a public rift now between Donald Trump, the White House, and effectively all the rest of the world science. Yeah, there's there's no other comparison in world leadership I mean you know when? When Donald? Trump. Talked about the virus in the beginning. He called it a hoax. He down played it repeatedly, he lied to the public as we know now with these revelations from Bob Woodward's book in which he privately was saying that this is a very deadly virus in publicly saying there was no risk that it was going to disappear like a miracle but then recall in in April when public health measures were put in place in various states donald trump called on people to liberate those states that was the language used in tweets from the public health measures when masks were recommended by the public health officials, he said they're not required and he took it. Pains to say that you don't need to wear them. So you know there's a reason why the US consistently is having about a thousand deaths today while most most countries in Europe are in the either single digits or low double digits, and you know it's it's just an ongoing problem where the US is effectively given up right now in the US, the worst states are in the upper midwest and the reason for that is because just weeks ago, two hundred, fifty, thousand motorcyclists descended on a small town of seven thousand people in Sturgis, South Dakota, which is allowed to go ahead and it spread a massive outbreak. Of Two, hundred fifty thousand people meeting in the middle of a pandemic doesn't exist doesn't compute in other countries in the world and yet it's being done with Republican leaders sanction. Where is the drive coming forward to defy the regulations into to go in a different path you mentioned the the infamous interview he gave to Bob would march when he said I wanted to play it down I still like playing it down because I don't want to create a panic but at that time he did recognize the he's huge risks of a place by corona virus. Is there a sense that the the decision to make everything feel normal put everyone together in the same room is coming directly from trump or is this a campaign move? I think it is coming from him and I think it is a campaign move. I think it's coming from him trying to argue that he is putting the economy I A lot of this has been with his sort of mindset that we must open the economy and the fundamental mistake that he made in some other world leaders made, and then quickly realized that it was mistake is trying to divorced the economy from the virus. The economy will grow in the virus goes away. The economy will improve when the virus comes under control and so you. The what's happening in the United States is very, very bad as or equilibrium where you have high levels of virus transmission and therefore you have a very low levels of economic recovery because people are still scared and I think the campaign is going to have serious implications for trump not just because of how bad the virus outbreak is for everybody. But specifically, because the people who don't want him to put the economy, I are those who are most vulnerable to the Virus Aka those who are. Sixty five plus and vote a lot. Especially, our key voting demographic in places like Florida and Arizona where they have large retirement communities in their swing states. So if he continues to do this to sort of model behavior that clearly shows that he is willing to put their lives at risk, it's a it's a very big opening for Joe Biden to say to those voters. Look I'm I'm worried about the economy to, but I also don't want kill a whole lot of Americans before you know. Before the virus comes under control through a vaccine or or petering out through her immunity God forbid. So I think this is a very risky strategy and one that could end up backfiring for

Mayor Garcetti on reports that COVID-19 may have been in Los Angeles as early as December

"As you know, mayor researchers at Ucla in Los Angeles say they actually saw significant increase in patients with respiratory failure in their hospitals beginning in late December that suggest that the virus may have been spreading much earlier than previously thought based on all the briefings you're getting all the expertise you're learning about the outbreak in La does that seem possible? It's possible. We had no big outbreaks. So we might have had some limited cases and we don't believe that most of our spread came from people that were here community spread we're such an international city. This is the. Fourth Busiest airport in the world the busiest container port in all of the Western. Hemisphere. So we have a lot of people who come through this very important crossroads and it's more likely that most infections came from there but absolutely, it probably was in the United States certainly northern California and possibly down here a little bit earlier to one of the reasons I'm proud that we were the first big city to start shutting things down first. Big City to say widespread Maske's had to be mandated Those things are important in those save lives if we'd had that at the national level and what we saw was devastating this week in Bob Woodward's book about not only knowing the threat but China downplay it, and now everybody's trying to say, oh, he was trying to keep people calm keep people calm by telling them the truth and arming them with the ways to protect themselves and their families not by saying this will go away without a vaccine or you Don't need to wear a mask and those decisions unfortunately cost lives. But at the local level I'm proud that you know mayors throughout this country and many governors Republican and Democratic took those right steps because now the evidence is showing, it was probably here earlier than we imagined

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.

Biden press secretary accuses Trump campaign of funneling questions to Fox News in spar with anchor

"Biden Eyes in Michigan, Joe Biden says Democrats in Michigan. Who voted for him and Obama twice but then voted for Donald Trump. Are basically Racists. This is a county that President Obama and you carried twice on then President Trump carried by 12% points in 2016. Why do you think so Many of these voters turned against the Democratic Party in 2016. You know, I think it was the feeling that they were taking for granted. I don't know that for a fact. And I think that he he used that dog whistle on race. That's one hell of a way to try to get back Those votes. And Michigan and Wisconsin accused them of B was being closet Racists. AAA racist that voted for me and Obama there. Ah! Yeah, they bought into the dog whistle. That's a home strategy. Bolt. What is a bold strategy? Cotton now as bad as Joe Biden is on camera His campaign press secretary is worse. No way. T J Duck Low Just this little weaselly looking dude, he made the mistake of going on with Bret Bear on Fox News yesterday. And listen. Bright bears, not a got your questions kind of guy. He's pretty straight up. As a matter of fact, he was asking some easy yes or no questions. And it didn't really go well for Biden's press secretary. What specifically would the former vice president have done? Well, let's get a few things straight. The vice president was not against the travel ban. First of all, second of all, let's let's remember, and he wasn't Brett. Let's remember an important distinction. Donald Trump was the president of the United States. It was on Donald. I'm asking you, Joe Budden. It was on the was Donald action toe actually protect the PT closed the travel that show Biden wrote an op ed in USA Today in January, warning that the threat was coming. Joe Biden said in February that Donald Trump should get people on the ground in China. What did what did Donald Trump do? Donald Trump was praising China. Donald Trump was praising President. She's response, saying that they had it under control. When clearly he knew, as we now know, from Bob Woodward. They did not have it under control. He should have been protecting the American people. He should have been putting real plans in place. So let me just confront in clinically dangerous. Understand. Let me just clarify your saying that Joe Biden was for closing down travel from China when the president did it. Joe Biden has been cleared. I continue the fact checks if they're helpful, Brett Joe Biden has been clear that he was not against that travel ban that he was for Joe Biden has been clear about how I can continue the fact checks if they're helpful. This has been fact checked into oblivion. Okay, I'm just asking the question. You're saying yes. He was for the shit. China travel ban when the president implemented it. 2 48 hours after receiving that briefing, the important thing about the travel babe, But I know that you will like to cite the travel ran. I know that. You know the president does. That's why I'm bringing it up are obviously it's going to be in the debate. Hold on. The important thing to know about the travel ban is that even after the president implemented that travel ban, tens of thousands of people came in and out, Take it. Then what was the question? You're going to send me some back goes on like this for, like, five minutes. This poor dude. TJ Duck Low, the campaign press secretary. He's worse on camera than Biden. Now, Here's Brett Baer asking a very simple question. Does Joe Biden have the questions coming to him in a teleprompter? Does he have his responses in a TelePrompTer because that's one of the allegations of the Trump campaign is saying Let's see how this question goes. Nobody ever used to teleprompter during local interviews or to answer Q and a with supporters were not goingto get this is this is straight from the Trump campaign they're using and what it does, and what it does is it's trying to distract the American just from there using and they talk about it every day. When you say yes or no, That's what they talk about it every day break because they don't have a coherent you answer Yes or no, Brett. They talked about it every day because they don't have a coherent argument for why Donald Trump. Deserves reelection deserves four more years. We know that he lied to the American people. We know that he has not shown leadership during this crisis, and they are desperate to throw anything they can against the wall to try to distract from the fact I understand, But you can't answer the question, but I am not going to allow. Okay, Trump campaign toe, funnel their questions through Fox News and get me to respond to that. So that's a no. Or yes, I don't even know why I got the question, wouldn't you? If you say no. If that was the case does Joe Biden use a teleprompter? When the answering questions to the press If the answer was no, wouldn't you? Would there be a problem saying? No. I understand the problem saying Yes, right. Why would you just lie? No, Not at all. Yeah, And then and then the other one. Well, well, You know what? I'm actually gonna have the E mail you the answer the memories. He's gonna email brown bear the fact checks right? I'll email you The fact checkers. Google Google? Yeah, That's not a good answer you You know it's bad when Joe Biden's coming up to you saying Listen, Kenny, you're pretty bad on camera, sir. My name's not Kenny. It doesn't matter. You're not allowed to speak on camera anymore. And this is coming from me. Joe Biden

Former White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders talks about new memoir and Woodward book

"Sanders is a former White House press secretary. Newly released book is entitled speaking for myself. Faith Freedom. And the fine of our lives Since of the Trump White House. You can fell around Twitter at Sarah. How could be good? Marty said. Good to talk to you. Good morning. Thank you for having me. Yeah. Sarah, tell me what's the one thing you want is to know based on the book about this president that either of supporters and detractors do not know. Well, I think the biggest takeaway there have been a lot of books written about the president and about the Trump Administration and after 2.5 year, spending nearly every single day of those 2.5 years with the president, I wanted people to see the president that I got to know the Donald Trump that gets up every day fighting for our country and that really loves America and wants to see it succeed and be at its very best. And I tried to write stories and moments that highlight that that show a different side of this president, sometimes a softer side, the compassionate and generous side that I had the privilege of seeing every day. There. We had Jonathan Karl on that that long ago here on the farm. I think they believe he had written a book as well. And he talked glowingly about the president out spine of the relationship inside that White House press room, but Is this common with the president and in some of his detractors I think they're certainly always been tension that exists between the press corps in the White House staff and the president specifically, But it has ratcheted up in this administration, the amount of negative attacks and the tension between the press and the White House is higher than it's ever been. But there are certainly I think plenty of good moment to and there are good reporters out there that are trying hard to get good information to the American people. Unfortunately, they're usually overshadowed by the loud Most people in the room her looking to be more of the story, then to report the story and that became too common in this White House and in this presidency. Speaking with Sarah Huckabee Sanders, former White House pressing, sir, of course in the recent released a brand new book entitled Speaking for myself, Faith, Freedom in the Fight for Our Lives Inside the Trump White House, Sarah the Woodward book. I think one big question that a lot of the present supporters have is this. Why did he give him such Accessibility. I think that after Woodward's first book about the president that was so negative, the president was hopeful that if he injected his own voice into the story, he could change the narrative. Unfortunately, Bob Woodward's been writing books about presidents for a long time, and very few have ever been positive. So I'm not sure that he was going to be able to change anything. He has. Woodward has a formula. He sticks to it, and he sells books and has done very well in doing that. I don't think I would have advised the president to spend that much time with him. But one of the things I find refreshing about this president if he isn't afraid to take questions from reporters, he does that almost every single day whether it's in the Oval Office, the briefing room or the South Lawn of the White House, he is accessible in a way that we have never seen a president be in modern history. There was. This has been a lot of criticism of Bob Woodward if he believed he had information and the president on tape. Of things that the president claim one thing in public and a love thing behind closed doors. And it would impact health and well being of the United States and its citizens. He had an obligation to report that did he not. Absolutely. He would have had a moral obligation to do that. That's why I don't think he felt that anyone was actually in danger as if he was more focused on selling books. Look, Let's not forget the president started talking about the Corona virus in January In his state of the Union address, he took early actions banning travel from China at the same time that Democrats like Joe Biden and Nancy Pelosi were attacking the president for taking that action. I think the president has really tried to do everything he could to keep the country calm, not collapse our economy completely while protecting lives and protecting livelihood. Having said that, did he lie? That's that's the sexism by his critics. But I don't think so. I think the president again he didn't want to create panic. I think we saw the similar rhetoric come from both from Joe Biden, he said. We don't want hysteria. We don't want people to panic. I don't think it is abnormal for the president of the United States for the leader of our country to want to keep our country calm and to keep people focused on defeating Disease and keep park economy from completely collapsing. I don't think that that is is wrong for the president to try Todo. The name of the book is speaking for myself. Faith freedom of the fight for our lives Inside the Trump. White House By Sarah Huckabee. Sanders. Sara. Thanks best look to the book to you as well, Thank you so much. I appreciate it.

Fallout From Bob Woodward Trump Tapes

"Bob Woodward that with a new book in which he based it on I think eighteen interviews on the record and recorded interviews with President Donald Trump in which president trump acknowledged that he was. Misleading speaking in a misleading fashion about the coronavirus early on in its development back there in February and March. Downplaying wanted to downplay to avoid panic steven. Portnoy how's this playing it? was going to be the impact from it. Well. We'll. We'll soon enough voters will have to decide how they feel about this, but I can tell you that that certainly. Hits. Washington. DC with a really powerful effect and. The president, this morning has been blasting out tweets recreating some of the tweets of the convention week from two weeks ago I try to focus the story elsewhere and he's tweeting the last fifteen minutes. The Democrats should open schools now faithfully, he says or or the money should follow the child why should schools be paid? When they're closed? They shouldn't he's trying to deflect criticism towards Bob, Woodward for you may have heard that some of journalism ethicists are wondering why it is would until his book release to. The, reveal some of this information and the president is saying quote if he thought they were so bloody said were so bad and dangerous. Why didn't he immediately report these things in an effort to save lives didn't he have an obligation to do? So the president asks which is an interesting question because the president obviously has. Had to deal with the negative criticism that has been aired since these revelations were made public about twenty four hours ago
