How Do Democrats React To Biden Winning The Presidency?
"In republican circles in washington. Dc the scrambled for the lifeboats appears to be underway as it becomes clearer that the ss trump is holed below the waterline monday. The electoral college did as instructed by voters last month and formally anointed joe biden as the president elect following the reluctance of an assortment of chuckling judges to hear any trump's lawsuits. The jig would appear to be up a now. Senate majority leader mitch. Mcconnell has often his grudging. Congratulations to the incoming forty-six president on joined with more on this by scott lucas professor of us. Politics at the university of birmingham scott. First of all to senator mcconnell's concessions slash congratulations. How big a deal is that. It's a big deal in the immediate term because it finally tips off that the republican heavyweights in washington are going to accept a president-elect biden now there will be a few house republicans who i think. Make a couple of false on january six which is when you have the formal congressional confirmation of the electoral college vote but by but mcconnell action only put out a statement yesterday. He sent his jeopardy john tune around to legislators to say that that house rebellion amongst republicans would not be very welcome. So i think the immediate issue is slow. Joe biden comes in as the forty six american president but there were onto the next two issues and one of those is whether mcconnell will work with the biden administration or just keep trying to obstruct it and then perhaps the broader issue at least for the republican party is that even if donald trump is water president. He may not be ready to cancel the reality. Tv show yet. So how does the gop try to count. Try to deal with an insurgent trumpism trying to take over the circus. Being mcconnell's acknowledgement is of course roughly the equivalent of admitting that the sun is going to come up tomorrow morning at eight hundred knowledge of reality but how much political calculation is mcconnell. Still making their because ridiculous. Though it is to even stated out loud feels we. There will be now a not insignificant number of trump voters american citizens who feel like senator mcconnell ease in on the plot. It's already out there. I mean donald trump was on twitter. Re tweeting and tweeting messages. Yesterday that mcconnell had sold him out and a very hard right polemicist information free performances. Still influential mark. Levin was calling last night for the resignation of mcconnell his replacement by someone more appropriate but becomes been around for decades. And he's pretty sharp. He's carried water for trump for almost four years. He no longer is facing that issue carrying water for trump facing that issue of word as the gop. Go nuts nuts andrew. We looked at another signal from yesterday after weeks. Indeed months of holding up a corona virus stimulus bill mcconnell was finally discussing it with leading republicans and democrats like the house speaker. Nancy pelosi in other words. We may get a deal by the end of this week. Which would be bipartisan. Which would be a stimulus deal in which neither side gets every thing at wants but it's actually a sign of cooperation now. We'll mcconnell can do that through the spring or will he as he did with the obama administration only a few years ago. Try to block it at every turn. I think that's the big immediate question. In washington even as the republicans try to grapple with what their identity is not post trump but still in the midst of trump. i mean. How difficult is that going to make life full mcconnell and what we might still think of as mainstream republicans in the mean all political parties have a lunatic fringe. That's pretty much on avoidable. But the republican party has been now more or less entirely captured by this poll off. The poll shows that a heavy majority of republican. Voters believed that last month presidential election was rigged despite the fact that not one shred of evidence for this assertion has been presented. Yeah but andrew. I think working at two levels in this new form of twenty-first-century politics and we're not sure if one triumphs or were not sure even if they coexist with each other in some strange political fantasy world and by that i mean what are they mitch. Mcconnell's looking at is you looking at the day to day workings of washington and that is donald trump doesn't have that many troops in the senate. Donald trump doesn't have anybody in the agencies because they all hate him. Donald trump does have sung trump est in the house The mcconnell thinks. Look you know i can deal with those folks and i think in normal times he could can mcconnell deal where the trumpster strongest however which is in this world of the airwaves. The hard right attack These aren't news companies. These are basically propaganda. L. newsmax breitbart and even most of fox. You know kim mcconnell actually deal with that media invective. it's become date after day after day. Which will say if he deals with democrats he sold out. And what if we get the spanner in the works and it may be sooner rather than later that trump says hey guys. I'm running for president in two thousand twenty four and he tries to dominate the new cycle with the day-to-day spectacle of. What's donald going. Do next i. I still think that the idea of a trump is takeover. The republican party is probably not there. But i do think. The trump insurgency at the level of the day to day chatter is still alive because again quick reminder more than half of republicans fifty four percent said in a recent poll that their favorite candidate for twenty twenty four donald. John trump. Well on that happy thought. How big a thing is it going to be. If on january twentieth president trump declines to turn up to watch biden be inaugurated as his successor and perhaps even tries to stage some sort of rival event. Well it'll be as big an event as the media makes it and here you know. The media doesn't make the news but it's got a role to play. It's been a part of the problem in the united states. It's part of the most critical point for america right now since. Nineteen forty five if the media gives attention to trump which tries to override or at least tries to rival. The inauguration play into his hands if the media effectively ignores trump which is a possibility. Believe it or not it just keeps focused on the inauguration and keeps focused on the business to be done in a pandemic in which one of the three hundred thousand americans died. Look trump only only gets spread his particular type of political whether you call it snake oil or poison. If someone's there to buy it is the media doesn't buy it snake oil salesman. You got nowhere to go

"Warren's shit like she gets down and dirty. Warren seem to approve the appointment of yellen. She sent out a very complimentary twee. And i've heard the two are close. And i hope that yellen and warren maybe work together on this because this is huge like this is such a crisis that it is too much for any person who would have been too much for warrant like there needs to be commissions in investigations in. Oh god i mean. I am very glad that biden picked someone as experienced as yellen. Someone who does not have to my knowledge wall street background. I think everyone has gone. We too easy on wall street on white collar crime on the you know merging of white collar and organized crime I'm really not thrilled with anyone. As you may have noticed from this episode but at least we don't have a secretary of the treasury who's coming right out goldman sachs or some other sleazy firm so good for biden for picking yellen instead of one of those people but jeez she's got a lot of pressure a lot of crises on her hands setting in the thoughts on her. Well i mean. I think that elizabeth warren obviously we all want her to be president and the cabinet and all her plans are a path on. How do trump proof are putin proof. Our democracy really is. That's what she was giving us this whole time. We did a whole episode on it for why we endorsed her. Everything from breaking up big tech to fighting corruption and strengthening our social fabric. It's also obvious. You know janet yellen does make. Everybody is largely happy. She did hold a wells fargo accountable for their big fraud. She is somebody that i think will get the job done. And she's friends with elizabeth warren. So those two are going to be on the phone. And they're going to be. Obviously because that's what janet yellen has been doing even during this crisis she's been on calls with congressional leaders and their staffed on how government can be the solution in this economic crisis. Were a time of hunger like the nineteen thirties. Time of massive food insecurity. People are seriously hurting and this is an enduring trauma remain with the rest our lives so you need someone like her and the really strong solid allies as she has in our corner in navigating this very seriously in a crisis that we're all suffering yet so best of luck to her I'm hoping she's upset. I mean there's a lot on the line here we one more than close it out. She close it out with. John kerry the special envoy for climate. I'm just relieved that john kerry's not secretary of state again. Let me tell you. Oh god yeah. Let's go off on joking so first of all. It's good that we have a special envoy for climate. It is very very crucial that the climate crisis be addressed. Exactly that as a crisis biden seems to grasp this for too long. We've had democrats just thinking they could hold off. On the climate crisis problem they could ignore the effects of it. They would laugh off things like the green new deal you saw. Diane feinstein now departed from the judiciary committee. god thank. Let's replace in twenty twenty four when she's up for reelection california yes hopefully. She will just retire. Her time has come and gone. She was mocking young people who were just terrified about their future. You know in an apparent is terrified about not just our future but the world that our children are inheriting so it's great that the biden administration seems focused on climate and hopefully they will continue to focus on the public above Corporations and fossil fuel producing companies and so on so john kerry in case you did not know was of course the secretary of state in the obama administration before that he was the senator from massachusetts he ran for president against george w bush in two thousand four and lost a probably a karl rove right after the announcement of his selection carey tweeted. America's will soon have a government that treats the climate crisis as the urgent national security. Threat is so while. that's all good. But as for the selection of john kerry to be the guy for this. I don't know what do you think i think it's a good role in showing that we put a very famous well known name in charge of this and so get your top people to come to the table. Let's do some serious work. I think any country around the world is going to want to know that they're meeting with someone important. So i think he's gonna bring a lot of decision makers around the globe to the table on climate in a big way and let me tell you something even if we get the elusive a slow news week. One day in the coming years. I don't think we're ever getting that again. Because the headlines of the accelerating climate disaster are going to be horrific. And it's going to create a refugee crisis. Unlike we've ever seen before. So i think even if biden or carmela together you know. Get two terms. Three terms in the white house. Right with biden does one kamla does the next to even get twelve years with a strong administration. It's too late for climate. It's not a matter of if but when there's no reversing it it's just bracing for impact now and what is left in that wreckage and how we learn to live with the water how he learned to live with the rising sea levels and the fires and the refugee camps the displaced persons in all of it. So that's going to be an issue that is going to unite us because it does pull strong even among conservatives. The writing is on the wall. The people impacted broke through the disinformation being. Fueled by big oil an and others that were profiting off of destruction our planet so i do think Making it a national security issue and putting up front and center was extremely smart and reassuring. It's going to pull out a lot of necessarily leadership from other countries around the planet and reassure them and get really strong people together at the table and god help us all because the climate crisis when it hits it hasn't yet hit yet. It's gonna make trump seem like a walk in the park. Yes on that happy. No we will conclude this week's episode of gaz nation. I'm sure we'll have More picks were you. A cabinet picks to go through next week. So we'll continue with that as well as our latest updates on the coup and thank you for listening.

"Yep i agree so please please get out the vote in georgia turn blue and we may have yet another second chance in the more leverage we build up the better so the biden administration this week announced Some of its new members. I guess we can go through those Informer audience get your opinion andrea Some of these folks for secretary of state replacing rapture fiend and friend of the fsb. Mike by the way you should be keeping an eye on his dealings in the middle east. We have time. We'll get without. But he's been hanging with netanyahu and nba s and a whole bunch of criminals. While they sell off our military equipment. It's very bad anyway. I don't think that anthony blinken is going to do that. And this is the thing. Actually we have to think about when we look through these trump administration officials. It's like first secretary of state truck brought in was rex. Tillerson the recipient of the order of friendship medal from vladimir putin and an oil tycoon. And so like the baseline standard here for all of these people are so low. So there's a sense of relief like oh we'll thank god. He didn't get a medal from an autocratic. Thank god he's not trying to bring about the apocalypse how refreshing but nonetheless We need to keep a critical eye on these folks because as we said before. The lack of vigilance is what led us into the situation. Years some info about lincoln. He was the deputy secretary of state. During the obama administration needs a longtime friend of biden. He has served in foreign policy positions during multiple democratic administrations including a member of the national security council in the clinton administration and deputy national security adviser. During the obama administration he was staff director for the senate foreign relations committee. When biden was chairing that panel and then later on was vice. President biden's national security adviser so much like the other biden picks very experienced. Somebody you know biden personally knows well but who also has a long resume of actual government service again seems very novel after four years of the trump administration. Gio thoughts in the sky andrea yeah. I'm super thrilled. Yeah i am i am. I think you know all those years of obama's foreign policy which i've always on this show was spread too thin and you never wanna draw a red line not enforce it which shows weakness and and again in utter lack of accountability in syria and syria is one of the great tragedies of course of our time and that karma is on all of us all the millions of refugees it created and allowing assad the butcher to stay in power backed up by putin giving rush mass murderer regime a terrorist regime a big military base. Now by its proxy state syria that it's propping up giving it a big military base now on the mediterranean so bama's foreign policy is also got us trump. He was week on putin. They all those ridiculous videos. We saw of carry his counterpart. The kremlin lavrov rob walking around in circles pretending to do diplomacy. When really there's no negotiating. Terrorists biden during that time was always seen as the one trying to push obama to be stronger in standing up to putin and being stronger for supporting ukraine with ukraine's revolution in two thousand thirteen. Heading into two thousand fourteen. When the first protesters were murdered by putin's puppet yanukovych it was biden that i heard that got ukraine into state of the union address at january two thousand fourteen and that was just such a wonderful moment for all of us ukraine watchers because it was that necessary recognition for this fiery revolution. That was being completely mischaracterized. Successfully by the kremlin's propaganda that was china painted as a far right neo. nazi uprising. A lot in the press. We're really going with that line. And so good on biden for being such a strong champion of ukraine. And all the stuff. That biden was saying and ukraine's parliament saying. Get your act together. Clean up your corruption. That the kremlin is weaponising at against you. Yes he's right in the same goes for the united states and all the stuff that republicans and trump and and russian propaganda like to try to get. Buy in trouble over. Which was you know biden calling for the firing of that crap prosecutor general ukraine that was music to the ears of any ukrainian civic society leader. That was music to the ears of any anti-corruption reformers in ukraine that needed to be done. The guy was corrupt and everyone was calling for him to finally be sacked. I have a lot of faith in biden's foreign policy. I think a lot of his ideas were getting held. Back by obama's foreign policy team and i'm really grateful to see this team that he's putting together led by blinken. Who famously called out. Obama for drying a red line in the sand and saying superpowers like america. You don't blink. You don't show weakness like that it creates this tech's of weakness and putin's strength than aggression fill that vacuum power with the utter lack of leadership there in syria. So i want to caution. All the idiots out there not to twist all of this into Being a warmonger. Anything like that. You simply need strength and standing up to bullies You need to have common cause you need to build a really strong coalition. And i really do believe under biden lincoln that they're the ones that are going to do it and i think they're going to contain putin's aggression and really smart ways and using peaceful measures of pressure to do it and what you're going to get over the next four years when putin doesn't like that medicine is. You're going to see a lot of disinformation spread trying to paint them as warmongers because the pressure is really going to hurt and isolate putin and no one's going to pose for pictures with them in many more on the world stage with america being hobbled under trump..

"So keep this in mind that we still have white supremacy as always point on the show and sarah just discussed and that remains a threat to the most vulnerable among us in building their terrorism. The nazis turned to america for inspiration from the atlantic especially significant where the writings of the german lawyer heinrich krieger. The single most important figure in the nazi assimilation of american race law. Who spent the nineteen thirty three. Nineteen thirty four academic year in fayetteville as an exchange student at the university of arkansas school of law seeking to deploy historical and legal knowledge in the service of area and racial purity. Krieger studied a range of overseas race. Regimes including contemporary south africa but discovered his foundation american law. His deeply researched writings about the united states began with articles in one thousand nine hundred eighty four some concerning american indians and others pursuing an overarching assessment of us race legislation each a precursor to his landmark nineteen thirty six book race law in the united states so the nazis would also loved lee atwater. Paul manafort's friend. While working in reagan's white house. Here's audio of lee. Atwater nineteen eighty-one giving an interview on the southern strategy. The same strategy trump relied on when he kept brandishing the phrase law and order and calling for the protection of suburban housewives. Remember over seventy million people voted for this warning when you hear out water in this clip about to play. He uses the n. Word which should surprise no one.
FCC Chairman says he will 'clarify' tech legal shield
"I try hard to leave politics out of this podcast. Believe me. That's why been staying away from the whole story about the New York Post and just son and facebook and twitter taking steps to limit the reach of that story on their platforms because I find that a mostly political story that's only secondarily a text story plus I don't know where I fall in terms of the argument around is this facebook and twitter crossing some sort of line. On. The one hand we want them to be more editorial right and on the other hand, we don't want them to be editorial at all and on the other hand we do and I don't know it's sort of maddening. But I do find myself agreeing with the people who say if twitter and facebook limit the spread of something that's not censorship they're not taking anything down. They're not preventing something from being published from getting out there. It already has been published. It is out there. It's more that they're. Not to amplify something that is already out there, and that's I. think a fair choice like if I decide not to cover a story on this podcast, that's my choice. If I decide to try to stay away from politics on the show, that's my choice. That's not me censoring something that's me saying that's not something I choose to talk about. Quitting Parker Thompson on twitter. I have read the argument a lot in the last day that social media is the Public Square? No. The Internet is the Public Square and it is infinite. Twitter is an Arby's on the square and your inside yelling about their lack of Vegan options being literal fascism and quote. So that's the most I'll say about that if I can help it but I did want to talk about this swirling around all of the things like this in the background is the whole discussion of amending section to thirty of the Communications Decency Act the thing that shields platforms like facebook and twitter from liability over content users post on those platforms. Well coincidentally, yesterday SEC commissioner a jeep pie suddenly said that the FCC will start a rulemaking action to clarify the meaning of section two thirty and that social media doesn't have quote special immunity denied to other media outlets and quote quoting Bloomberg the announcement came hours after Senate Republicans demanded the chief executive officers of facebook and twitter explain steps. Their sites took to limit the distribution of a controversial New York Post article concerning Hunter Biden the son of Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden twitter and facebook said they did it because of questions about the articles accuracy and use of hacked material end quote. Problem is pie and the FCC have no authority over section two thirty like none. Quoting, Mike, MAZANEC IN TECH DIRT PIE is wrong. Almost everything he says in his statement the FCC has no jurisdiction over Internet websites. Previous lawsuits have already held that furthermore, the FCC has jurisdiction over section two thirty, which was explicitly written to deny the FCC authority over websites. The FCC has no power to reinterpret the law. The final paragraph is the most ridiculous of all pie is correct that social media companies have a First Amendment right to free speech and section two. Thirty as was written and properly regularly interpreted by dozens of court decisions. None of which the FCC has ever said a word about helps guarantee that right is not diminished through frivolous bogus and misdirected litigation. Also, the claim that the immunity is quote denied to other media outlets is straight up wrong. Any outlet is protected from liability for third party content on their websites. It's why Fox News and Breitbart can have comments on their websites. It's why things like Parlor and Gab can. Pie knows this he's just being disingenuous in terms of actual impact. All this will serve to do is row people up waste a ton of time and not actually change anything because it can't but it will create a huge mess in the meantime distracting everybody and wasting a ton of resources and quote. Actually went to underline something that Mike said there because a lot of other people have been making this point as well. If your concern is that platforms have a power to quell speech were take things down or limit reach or quote censor things if that's what you believe is happening if that's your concern, the last thing you WanNa do is monkey with section two thirty because if platforms are liable to be sued for everything that billions of people post trillions of times a day if they're suddenly opened up to lawsuits at scale, then believe me they will immediately and very aggressively take a ton of things down if they didn't they end up risking being sued out of existence. You can be unhappy with editorial decisions made by the platforms I. Often am where you can think that section two thirty is a bad thing I often do but I'm wondering if it's possible to do both simultaneously.
Some On The Right See 17-Year-Old Charged With Killing 2 Kenosha Protesters As Hero
"Riton House, the 17 year old charged with killing two protesters in Kenosha, Wisconsin, goes before a judge tomorrow for a preliminary hearing. Rittenhouse has become a hero to some on the right. Sean Johnson of Wisconsin public radio reports on those pushing that narrative. After Kenosha police shot Jacob Lake, a black man in the back multiple times. The city erupted into protest on August 25th Kyle Rittenhouse made the 20 mile trip to Kenosha from his home in Antioch, Illinois. Rittenhouse, a lifeguard and a vocal supporter of police said he was there to protect the local business and offer medical help if needed. He walked through the crowds that night with an air 15 rifle strapped to his chest. What happened that night is disputed and will eventually be hashed out in court. But a full scale public relations blitz is underway by some of written houses supporters. A group called the Fightback Foundation released a dramatic video compilation of cellphone footage from the night of the shootings. It claims Riton House fired his gun on Lee after being chased and attacked. Narrator speaks of Rittenhouse being sacrificed by politicians. But it's not Kyle Riton house there after their end game is to strip away the constitutional right of all citizens. To defend our communities, our personal property. Our lives and the lives of our loved ones written houses cause got the attention of conservative media figures. Here's former Florida attorney general Pam Bondi, on Fox News. What's it coming, too? In these liberal cities? When teenagers have to go out there to try to provide aid? The Fightback Foundation says it's raised almost $2 million for Riton House. The group's chairman, is Linwood, a prominent attorney who made a name for himself representing Richard Jewell in the 1996 Olympic bombing case. Longtime Wisconsin defense lawyer Dean Strang, who is not involved in this case, says the teens, attorneys may well argue self defence, but it has nothing to do in the first instance with being the hero. It has everything to do with whether you will be held responsible for killing other people or you want. Kyle Rittenhouse is charged with first degree reckless homicide in the death of 36 year old Joseph Rosenbaum and first degree intentional homicide in the death of 26 year old Anthony Huber. Huber. Surviving partner, Hannah Giddings is among a group of plaintiffs who this week filed a civil lawsuit against Riton House and a Kenosha militia group in a YouTube clip. She talks about Hubert. He did not deserve that. He was a Good human Being. The plaintiffs are also suing Facebook for publicizing the militia groups call to arms. John Pearce has written houses lead attorney. He told the conservative news site Breitbart that his client had a god given right to be in the city that night. But I will tell you There's no doubt about this. That is, every law abiding Americans showed up in the city that they love. There are 15 The chaos would stuff immediately. Aside from the Rittenhouse case, it does appear more people are embracing violence as a solution. In 2020, University of Arizona sociology professor Jennifer Carlson researchers gun politics, She says she's noticed the difference this year. Rather than solving problems at the ballot box, she says. Some are reaching for a box of bullets. People are beginning to really think that we have reached the point of no return with regard to violence and whether we have or not. If people believe that we have that is very troubling. Kyle Rittenhouse is in custody in Lake County, Illinois. Tomorrow's court hearing there will focus on whether he can be extradited to Wisconsin. For

The Pixel 4a is coming
"We just had soon are on the show. Was it two months ago? And we're like what's up pixels and he like we gotta make him. Good. Did he make him good. I mean he made he made one one. Good. So the Pixel for a has been announced and released viewed it bunch of a tear. Actually, the podcast of used one but because the Pixel for is late and we can talk about why it is really close to when we're assuming the pixel five is gonNA come out. So Google is like you know what? Yeah, we're making a pixel five. It'll be out here this fall also there's GonNa be a pixel for a five G. 'cause you know that's what you want. So they just announced all three phones at once just Bam per year of you reviewed the. We've not seen photos of the five. We have seen various and confusing leaks all summer and Chris you might actually have a better handle around this afar but a bunch of the early leaks for like this must be the pixel five. Am It's like well, no, there's actually the probably the pixel for five G. now, and then there's more yet more internal documents, even more pixels at a foldable pixel like later on down the line like it's a fiasco in Pixel rumor land. Super. Confusing I mean they had that league. I think it was last month there was a phone. It looks just like the four day but they said it was the five and people weren't sure. But then it seems like they might get rid of their face ID clone which I really actually liked on the pixel of four like to just walk away from that the thumb reader but I mean, yeah, no one's really quite sure it's going to look like even the four five G. might have new specs or a bigger screen or who knows who knows what the story is I mean it's there's there's just always confusion about what's GonNa Happen is GonNa have brightly colored plastic rectangle smug s Yes The four as a decidedly, not brightly colored plastic rectangle. Four, you reviewed it. So the big big new innovation in the Pixel Foray is they dropped fifty bucks off the price. So it to three hundred, fifty dollars, which is. Pretty big. It's a pretty big deal It's a hundred bucks less than these storage equivalent iphone se. To get one I WANNA see one, hundred, twenty, eight gigs and they just like. Got Everything as good as you can probably get it on a three hundred, fifty dollar phone like I. Wish it had a faster processor but we live in a world of android where qualcomm. If you want to get a good qualcomm processor, you gotta spend way too much money. So I got like, okay one that's got a pretty solid screen. It's it's got a hole punch. It's got the Pixel camera a Becca actually pointed out to me when we were talking to them, she asked if it had was the sensor Becca three sixty three. Yeah. Same Sensor as. The Pixel four and the Pixel three and the Pixel three they've been using literally like the exact same camera stack for like two years now. So it's great. It makes takes rate photos but they haven't pushed it much. I would love it. If you could select your software tuning on the Pixel who right if you buy a pixel for and like make this shit, look like the Pixel two that would make me very happy because I thought the Pixel two looked it was the most contrast in the most dramatic and they have veered towards looking more like the overtime. But I wish. I. Could just be like go back to that look I love that look the best because if they're using the same hardware, they should give you the choices software, right? Everyone is just looking at me like. I mean it's like it's like saying you should just get your choice of. Clutch on your Mustang like it gets tied. The thing. Okay. Versus automatic. Put Your Ninety seven clutch in Twenty fifteen I mean you don't WanNa do that but you can be retune in anyway. Keep going the pixel for we're not gonNA talk about mustangs fingerprint sensor on the back. It works great. It's got a headphone Jack. because. Apparently low and phones are the only phone's headphone Jacks Anymore Beca you holding one right now you're holding. I'm holding one right now and what I'll have to say about this is that I love this thing like it gave me everything I like about phones in twenty twenty like a big screen and it's slim and the batteries diesen but it kept the things that I also love about previous cones that I love a fingerprint sensor like a one on the back and I love a headphone Jack and I love the Pixel camera in its three hundred and fifty dollars, which is a pretty good pricing twenty twenty for a brand new phone. There's this. There's this meme out there. For him but like there's this idea out there that like Google was bored with android in the pixels reflection of its board on this phone feel like they're bored with it. Now I'm bored with Andrew. Debut. The one new features accessibility feature for software a IT'll do real time captioning phone calls but it doesn't record them and it doesn't put them on the Internet. So don't have your conspiracy theories thrown at me Breitbart. They wrote it up terribly anyway So that's like the one thing but that's coming other pixels. It's just like Google. So committed to keeping the pixel software like really clean and basic relative to the madness that happens on every other android phone that it can feel a little bit boring and their decision to be really like understated with their design. I think it's like they've got they've. got a little bit too far. It's been like, no, no this is this is the the android phone that isn't flashy. It's just like a phone and after a while like that message gets through that like. Made a phone. Okay. Like they want it to be utilitarian to the point where it's like become a little bit boring. Thank you. Go. Has has been so long burned by Sergey Brin. Coming into Google glass event. On a hang glider. That's a real thing that happened they.

S. capitol has remained silent on her father's role in overseeing the dedication of the Stonewall Jackson and Robert E. Lee monuments while serving as Baltimore's mayor in nineteen forty eight now face a true Stalin's revolution Nancy Pelosi would be called to account because her blood was involved in promoting the confederacy doesn't matter she was or not that's your blood that's one generation ago she hasn't even been confronted by the media on this hasn't even been confronted except by Breitbart posted this week formally requested the removal of Confederate statues occupying the U. S. capitol dismissing them as monuments to men who advocated cruelty and barbarism to achieve such a plainly racist and the demand comes as angry protesters across the nation take matters into their own hands vandalizing in some cases beheading statues and monuments memorializing the civil war era and beyond I'm surprised they don't have a guillotine as I've said before the halls of Congress or the very heart of our democracy the statues in the capitol should embody our highest ideals as Americans expressing who we are and who we aspire to be as a nation Pelosi said in her letter to committee chair Roy blunt and vice chairs Alaska monuments to men who advocated cruelty and barbarism to achieve such a plainly races center grotesque affronts to the ideals she said our ideals their statues pay homage to hate not heritage they must be removed well then her father's a real SOB he's a real **** he's a real racist and a hater Thomas Dallesandro that's her maiden name oversaw the dedication of such a statue in Baltimore's Wyman park the Stonewall Jackson and Robert E.

The Virus Changed the Way We Internet
"Will social distancing means a lot more for Americans when it comes to screen time according to The New York Times the corona virus pandemic has changed the way we consume the internet times analysis shows Americans are using the internet more to connect and entertain themselves however the way we go online and the sites in the apps that we use are changing and this very moment when the sand hill property co wrote that article he's a finance a technology reporter for The New York Times and he joins me now so that they know it's really fascinating here what did your findings really reveal about how people are consuming the internet or the still on their phones that's a that's a great question and that's one of the things that's been changing I mean our our whole lives have been changing but I think one of the biggest shift that's going on right now is that we are moving our lives online I'm at because we have we can't be out in the real world and I'm M. and one of the things that's happening as we move home as you say is that we're remember in our computers were remembering that staring down at this little screen is perhaps not not that pleasant and so you see our Netflix YouTube Facebook people are going in droves but they're not going to the apps that they were going to just a few months ago and that the whole tech industry was really focused on a few months ago everybody was talking about the shift to mobile now we're at home and we're using all these services on our computers so what are the ask people are downloading a increasingly during this pandemic well obviously the biggest shift that's happening is that we are working from home we're going to school from home and so that the the apt that everybody's talking about these days is zoom and indeed it has just exploded that that the usage of it but you're also is seen you know Microsoft teams with people are using Google classrooms and it's clear that it's clear that what people want to do is connect not not through tax they want to connect through video they want to be able to see each other out because that's really what social distances and making it possible to make it impossible to see each other in person so we're turning to zoom returning to house party to to get together with our family to play games you know it's all it's a whole bunch of apps that really were kind of struggling along before this and have now become the way that we're living our lives I I gotta tell you I've I've done that with my family we we played taboo V. as you at one point it was a great way to sort of connect it was a lot of fun it was really a lot of fun it was also I found fascinating your reporting you show that local news is up people going to local news sites when you look at partisan outlets like Breitbart and daily caller they're not seeing that same bomb what do you think that is yeah I mean this is another one of these areas where the trends that we're defining online life before the corona virus you know that the shift to partisan news sites which has been so important over the last few years just like the shift to mobile that we're talking about earlier now you know in this time of coronavirus people don't seem to want opinions they want to know what he you know how many people are my local hospital how many people have died from this which doesn't which local businesses are shut down and so local newspapers which have really been struggling you know over the last few decades I've just seen their traffic taking off there's nothing like news I mean that that is the one category that we are spending most of our time but we're spending it differently again then we were we're not we're not insuring the opinions we want the fax so based on this data what do you think the trends are that could last well beyond the pandemic are there areas of the internet that you think will be forever changed about how we consume it I think that there are areas that will be changed I mean look we're all having we're all getting to experience distance learning you know MOOC sin and kids going to school through Google classroom for obviously all getting to work from home in a way that we didn't get to before and I think some of it in some ways were were realizing how inferior that is were probably as soon as this is over we're gonna want to get back in the classroom we're gonna want to get back into your colleagues in the offices were realizing that this isn't a great substitute in some ways but I think in other ways we're gonna realize the ways that you know I zoom meeting early in the morning maybe is better than everybody you know gritting their teeth or traffic can get into the office early you know you can certainly imagine that there's going to be more of all of this moving forward but obviously I think there's there's an element of this which is reminding us of how much we like seeing each other how much we like being around each other and how much we like playing taboo yeah in a room with each other rather by others in our faces you're absolutely right I do miss that human connection but I gotta tell you that Daniel I'm coming to you streaming it wearing a business suit with sweat pants a cashmere slippers underneath I'm quite enjoying that aspect of his job at this moment I wouldn't pay members all all about the head out for these few weeks at least absolutely right all about the head of the federal poverty thank you very much for joining us thanks
White Nationalism in the White House: Katie McHugh Kept Receipts
"It's no secret that members of the trump administration up to and including trump himself are parroting the views of white nationalist and white extremist groups. These organizations are tied into outright media outlets like Breitbart and others where they spread this propaganda to the masses. We're going to try something a little different today. I'll be joined by a guest. Co Host. Hossan Ahmad is an immigration attorney and anti white nationalist activist from Virginia. Hossan has been deeply involved in obtaining the archived writings of John. Panton one of the men. Behind the current white nationalist movement in America Hossan connected me to Katie McHugh. Katie is a former white nationalist. Who has renounced her views in his working. Hard to undo the damage. She did when she held them. She's a former staffer for Breitbart and other alt-right media where she was in constant correspondence with Stephen Miller at the trump white house. She's exposed those emails and the deep ties of Miller into the white nationalist movement in America voice box he's overlap between trump's message white nationalist ideology he has shown us that the majority of Americans support are sort of message. You know what yeah make. America great again fell the wall. Pick these people out. This is my country. This this all belongs to me. Trump demurred when asked whether he'd condemned supportive comments from former Ku Klux Klan. Leader David Duke. I have to look at the group I mean. I don't know what group you're talking about. You wouldn't want me to condemn a group that I know. The person is dead and nineteen injured after a speeding vehicle drove into a group of protesters. Your leader downtown Charlottesville very fine people on both sides so we just got a new batch of emails from Breitbart reporter Katya Q. The Southern Poverty Law Center has made public excerpts of emails sent by White House. Senior adviser. Stephen Miller was a key figure shaping immigration policy or president trump the email messages for fifty thousand sixteen. Show Miller support white nationalist website and ideologies. My name is Katie mccue. I've exposed eight far-right extremists in the past fifteen months by working with civil rights groups and legendary nonprofits. I'm very excited now. In the stage of my life to help the most vulnerable in society including people of Color immigrants those who practice Islamic faith and those who this car presidential administration opposes the mouse and seeks to punish through use of authoritarian policies. Sorry Not Sorry so katy you spent a bit of time in the alright. What is the difference if you can explain to US between the alright a white supremacy and white nationalism? What are some of the core beliefs that you're aware of as part of this movement? Well I can say I think we should begin with aristotle here. I don't want to sound pretentious but everything is on a trajectory this is also just basic calculus so one of the things. Aristotle spoke about was habit and one thing you witness with the outright because the media treated them as a truly humorous force that's just online and it's backing Donald Trump and it's young people. The fact is everything that they said. Ironically I'm making air quotes eventually became ironic so whenever people thought they were quote unquote trolling about saying the nineteenth amendment should be repealed and you had white supremacist media figure. Richard Spencer eventually meeting. No I don't believe women should have the right to vote all these memes and things you see on twitter and the way that these mobs were organized so much so that they became. It was almost like blunt force trauma when it came to harassment for media figures. They were not joking. And in the case too with someone like Stephen Miller who's one of the most powerful people in the US government especially when it comes to people who are not white. So who is Stephen Miller? And why is it so important that we understand his thinking? Stephen Miller is one of the closest advisers to president trump. He is the architect of trump's immigration policy and also has the president's ear on foreign policy matters. Stephen Miller for his entire career had anti immigrant. Leanings for some people philly with the alright because it's an amorphous group and doesn't have a membership roll with you. Know I mean. They viewed on white people and people who practice the Islamic faith as not only dangerous individuals but an existential threat to the country. And this does tie into eugenics which unfortunately America has a very dark history with eugenics Ray Science and a history which John drew from and help shape the anti immigrant agenda that has sought renewed energy from the emergence of the outright and renewed energy from the trump campaign and which we now see the full force turned against the most desperate vulnerable people in the world for punish purely because of their country of origin their ethnicity in the face that they practice kitty. You seem so articulate and passionate and human and when we paint these pictures are head of the other side we sort of create these villains. I think I WANNA be respectful for your privacy and safety but I was wondering if you could talk a little bit about how you got caught up in the movement so that we can have a better understanding as to how other people get caught up in the movement. Thank you for asking that because I think that everyone's path is different but buying could help explain some of the groundwork for other young people currently trapped in this. Who Don't quite know how to get out. The outright on the far-right are very much like a gang. You know there's a no snitching policy and I think that many many young people especially let's say trump does not win reelection in twenty twenty this year. A lot of young people are going to wonder. How do I get out of this? And how do I reconnect with other people again and have a healthy loving life full of good friendships? Good connections across backgrounds. So I will just say that I'm from Pennsylvania regular conservative town and I was raised like I think the joke is. You're born a lapsed Catholic. So that was my upbringing. Regular childhood must very nerdy was constantly reading and I was politically inclined. People always talk about two thousand four election. People were very excited about George W Bush. Because it's a Red County and two thousand eight of course with the banking crisis. Things got much more serious and of course the Iraq war still going on so I was chatting with one of my best friends. Her Dad and I was regular Republican fully supporting the Iraq war in in the war in Afghanistan and he said well. Why don't you read this person named Joe So brand? Joseph O'Brien was a former senior editor for national review. He was fired by William F Buckley because he could not control his anti-semitism. I ate him alive. Almost like a neurological virus and I'm eighteen. I had never met someone of poop practice. Jewish faith Jewish background nothing. I didn't understand anti-semitism and I was reading the Essay. That was recommended to me. Call the reluctant anarchists sing. How all government is evil in the constitution has already been so violated. We just need to go back to something. Like pre articles of confederation. Okay this is very important to understand. Is that there is a serious libertarian. Too Far right pipeline very serious and the far right of course is just steeped in. Eugenics steepen utterly discredited on Justifiable Race
Kickstarter Employees Vote to Unionize in a Big Step for Tech
"The tech world just got disrupted by news from the Brooklyn based crowdfunding platform Kickstarter where this week employees voted to unionize and yes it's cliche at this point to talk about tech and disruption but consider that this vote marks the first time in history that white collar workers of a major well known tech company have made the move to be represented by organized labor the move also comes on a recent wave of union successes in the tech sector including Google and it is the card vice and mother board staff writer Laura or a girly has been following the Kickstarter story and the tech labor beat she joins me now studio to explain what this moment really means Lauren welcome to the studio thank you so much for having me so how does vocal about what's the backstory before the vote yes so a little bit of background on Kickstarter itself it was founded in two thousand nine it's a platform that creators artists can used to you know get funding for a creative ideas they have like gadgets or books or just won the short for the Oscar started as a Kickstarter here love right that's so cool and so it's always sort of positioned itself as I mean it's based in Greenpoint Brooklyn positioned itself as like a progressive out liar to the rest of Silicon Valley and so I think for a long time things were going well that in August of two thousand eighteen the company published decided to publish a comic called always punch **** it was sort of like a history of racism in the United States and Breitbart they're far right far right wing news platform I said that it violated Kickstarter's terms of service my inciting violence and so that point workers of the company were like we want to leave the project up we think it's important not to concede to bright fire and Kickstarter was like we have to take it down there was a whole or is the management layer said this guy to come down right and the employees were like wait a minute this is this is not what we're about we're not about center exactly yeah and so there is this whole controversy controversy eventually management decided to leave it up but at that point Kickstarter workers where you know sort of so disgruntled and upset about the situation that they started thinking about unionizing last year in March they went public with the union campaign with the office professional employee union International Union of P. E. I. U. and up until you know Tuesday they've been working on a campaign management came out you know against the union they said that you know a union framework is inherently adversarial for Kickstarter why do we need a union here you guys are talking please you're paid well that sort of rhetoric but employees really felt that they needed a union to address some of these more ethical and moral issues you know they want to be able to have a say in how their platform is moderated they want you know more of a say in terms of firing hiring Kickstarter actually fired to of the lead organizers of the union campaign that's interesting and they said it had nothing to do with you know their union organizing activity that I had everything to do with job performance but you know it was it was an interesting move for them to make I also reported a few weeks ago last week actually that they hired a law firm a Philly law firm that has done a lot as a sort of union busting like work for other companies facing union drive so that's all you know sort of to me it was sort of suspicious I don't know what they were how they were advising Kickstarter but it Kickstarter clearly did not want a union and now they have one now I can start the vote ended up being forty six to thirty seven so that's that's not really weighted heavily one where other meat significant but it's not a landslide in terms of a wind wind the people who were against the union employees who were that he knew the place were against the union did any of them explain why they would be against the yeah I think people working people are always concerned when the union comes and that it will sort of damage for the relationship between leadership and rank and file workers especially in a smaller place like Kickstarter unions have traditionally you know better a mechanism to fight for better wages bread of bread and butter labor issues wages benefits working conditions like workplace injuries these are things that Kickstarter workers are particularly concerned about their well paid they they're working conditions are you know they aren't dangerous at least and stuff so yeah so that's interesting so they want on the one side people say yeah everything's fine this is not what we need and on the other side is saying we want to be invested in the decision making especially around issues like the one that part upon kick this kick this all off right and this is actually part of a larger dynamic which I'm sure you know about that a white collar workers organizing this massive wave of white collar tech worker organizing that's going on right now that's been sort of unprecedented and you know all the years that Silicon Valley has been a major force over the past two years you've seen workers organizing a lot around a lot of ethical and moral issues political issues like political advertising like contracts with ice military like you know climate change oil and gas contracts at major companies like Google and Microsoft so this is part of that I would say my guess is learn carry girly we're talking about Kickstarter voting to unionize why did the unionization efforts a Kickstarter why would you think they were successful so many a report on this broadly at Kickstarter when they faltered in other places yeah I'm so they I mean there haven't been any him you know major union drives the other top companies so far like there there there may be a low key one going on at Google right now most of the previous you know tack worker or get labor union organizing movements have been for contractors or more precarious workers like fact like cafeteria workers I Google and Facebook with this this is the first like real instance of workers getting really close to unite are succeeding in sorry excuse me eating in unionizing a white collar work force and I think they were successful because they're small companies progressive you know there's only a hundred and fifty S. employees and their only eighty eight or so they're in the this union's bargaining unit only eighty eight or so who are you know eligible to vote so I think it's a lot easier than organizing like thousands of Google workers because of the sort of tight knit community and you know people aren't working across multiple offices little bit smaller and they have like a legacy why are you know very progressive values there so it was easy to get people at least a majority of the people on board never he said a couple times and they have this images of themselves as more progressive in the tech space what kix are done to to earn that yeah that's a good question so in twenty fifteen they re branded or they sort of became a public benefit corporation and they came out they said that you know we're not only interested in making profit we're interested in like the political and ethical impact of our work that's what we really care about they've come out again they've taken political stances on a number of issues like the anti trans bathroom lawn North Carolina so and they generally like if you look at their pop for a lot of their projects are you know about progressive political issues so in that sense they're different they're also in New York there in Brooklyn and their work force is you know they hired I mean I was actually at the union election on Tuesday when our site wasn't election but the the ballot count and you can just tell people are extremely progressive I think it was like oh my god it was one of the most exhilarating things that I've ever witnessed people were like group sitting on in you know in their chairs like gripping the sides of their seats as the votes were being counted like you could hear everyone's breath then like change as like people were going yes no the the unit that analyzed the official is now counting out the gases in the nose and out that at the end it became clear that they were gonna win because they had you know nine more votes in people everyone started crying and sort of screaming and management was also there they look very somber my guess is Lauren power a girly vice staff writer we're talking about the unionization at Kickstarter and in the tech industry at large so what's the next step for Kickstarter United so they will now going to union negotiations contract negotiations allow try to write up a contract that addresses a lot of the issues that they've been hoping to change and that that process can be extremely you know it can take a lot I could take months it could take a year but I think in in the mean time other tech workers will you know sort of how the impetus to also start organizing when they see what happened at Kickstarter you mention I was gonna ask you was brought it out now you mention is what he called it a low level situation a Google what's happening AT Google around Union Station yes so Google higher I mean there's been as I'm sure a lot of people know a lot of organizing going on at Google not union organizing at least publicly by organizing around sexual harassment around the things I mentioned like contracts of the military larger political issues these are these are this organizing around issues like this is protected under the national labor relations act even though it's not union activity at the same time Google has caught on to this they recently hired a anti union consulting firm that is specifically you know trained and specializes in union busting so clearly there's some sort of warranty that workers or work union organizing and you know I think they're sort of whispers that is is going on that Google or I mean not publicly but based on all the activity that's going on that there must be an interest in you know eventually unionizing a lot of times people don't go public with this until that like absolutely have to or want to make like more of a statement to the press when did this this wave start this white collar at the wave the white collar workers thinking about unionizing yeah it started a couple years ago I I some people pointed at with this group of software engineers in San Francisco the latex I don't actually know to pronounce it plain tax workers group of fifteen software engineers who filed a petition to unionize and the small software firm fired all of them and ended up filing a complaint with the analyzed be and ended up getting you know close to a million dollars and lost wages back because you know their their rights to what they're they're right under federal law to organize is violated that was sort of what people say was like the turning lane the point that sort of opened the floodgates and all of this stuff happened but I think you know realistically tech workers have been organizing for years if you look at the timeline and it has been going on since the seventies since the Vietnam War basically so it's just sort of like a like a wave that we're having right now that's extremely you know exciting and like a lot of it it's it's very visible it's very publicized what is the the relationship between the white collar workers in the tech industry and the blue collar workers when it comes to unionization is their relationship is there are the parallel or the intersecting is one having a bigger impact on the other I mean obviously they're related because you know they both work for Fred they work for the same company is a lot of the the the release for gig workers a lot of the engine the that that software that's being engineered by white collar workers is you know being used on gave orders like they have to use the ops in the the platforms and so there is that very close connection there but I think that the workplace issues that these two groups face are pretty different on the one hand for blue collar workers like I mentioned get workers for lifting it over and Amazon warehouse workers are the main concerns our bread and butter like labor issues their wages they're working conditions their benefits like they want just like basic you know labor protections other people have that white collar workers like Google engineers already have you know the average salary of Google's like a hundred twenty five thousand dollars people are organized white collar workers are organizing around those issues like I mentioned they're concerned with moral and ethical issues so I think when workers unionize are launching campaigns those are the the the the reasons why it for doing so are different but there's a lot of room for solidarity between the two groups and there has been you know solidarity movements between the two groups Amazon corporate employees in Seattle have gone and flown out to warehouses in Amazon warehouses in Minnesota where workers are protesting and striking there's a lot of there are a lot of intersections and there are lots of opportunities for the groups to hold each other out then purge a killer I think there's a lot of opportunity for white collar workers who have more leverage to support blue collar workers as someone who reports on this whether companies are part of the tech world should we be looking at for news about organized labor the next year so yes so I've been covering insta car a lot which is one

Traditional and Social Media: Trump's Key to Success
"What is keeping you up at night? The most when you think about twenty twenty. What keeps me up at night is that trump has a massive structural media advantage? He has a massive state adjacent propaganda machine that pumps his message out to his voters with tremendous discipline support and Democrats have not yet figure how to counter that. This primary season is not lending itself to to our party getting out a clear alternative to Donald Trump. He's an uncanny message person every time I think he's really off on something. Then we go and test it and we find out how strong it is. I wish we had some place that was able to get out consistent message against him. Two of the most important things that Democrats can control role in this campaign are what to say and how to say it. In other words our message and the strategies we use to communicate that message is Dan Pfeiffer and Celinda Lake just mentioned the Party starts twenty twenty at a disadvantage in both of these areas along. Crowded primary. Hasn't allowed us to coalesce around a single message about what we stand for. Or how we govern and aside from your friends at crooked media a few other outlets like us there's just no progressive equivalent to Fox News and the massive propaganda machine that Donald Trump and the Republicans rely on to deliver their message overcoming. This challenge might be the most critical step on the path to victory. Sorry in November. Because as we've now learned from the organizers on the ground and the voters in our focus groups it's crucial to breakthrough all the noise and nastiness cynicism to actually reach people where they are and persuade them that it's possible for us to get to a better place. So how do we do that. We'll talk to people who have some smart ideas on media and message in our final episode of the Wilderness. It's very hard for Democrats. Even the current contract with the media to put the conversation on the things that matter to voters healthcare where the economy those sorts of issues. They don't get clicks. Try Social Media Traffic. There's no algorithm benefit to them so they might as well be trees falling in the forest at times. That's Dan pfeiffer. Lifer Co host to Pod Save America and author of un-trumpian America pointing out. How difficult it is for Democrats to break through with messages policies that the voters we've heard from actually actually care about Donald Trump on the other hand doesn't have this problem? He has a tremendous advantage because of social media so the Algorithms reward outrage and outrage as the coin of the Roman conservative politics but it's not just social media where trump has an advantage. He also has tremendous Mendes influence over. What the traditional media covers the traditional media is forced by the perverse economics of digital advertising icing to cover trump? He is the nation's assignment editor. which is something one of us wants called him? We start with the president's public meltdown on twitter pushing the trade war between the world's economic superpowers into a dangerous new fe day. Nine I think of the president continuing to go. After this group of women he calls them a UC seve plus three. That's the new nickname that he unveiled for them today. The way in which media outlets have to pay their bills in a world in which you are getting paid paid by the click forces you into covering and writing about content that gets clicks. Because you're getting your traffic from facebook and Google right right in facebook. It's rewarding trump content because trump content makes people so he has that advantage tear McGowan a democratic strategist and CEO. Joe Of digital advertising firm acronym expands on Dan's notion of trump. As the nation's assignment editor the mainstream media are only covering what what gets the most noise which is actually really seeded by the Republicans and trump specifically because trump will tweet something out and then the media picks up on it because they have to exceed the president. It started when he tweeted on Sunday. That Alabama would quote most likely be hit much harder than anticipated painted. The National Weather Service then tweeted. Alabama will not see any impacts from Roy in the trump era a lot of media criticism is about whether journalists I do enough to fact check. Trump's lies or even call them lies at all but what may be even more helpful to trump is that the media has allowed him to become as Dan says says the nation's assignment editor. They let him drive the conversation. They let him pick the issues. They let him set the terms of the debate. Even when he's not talking about about governing or policy-making which usually isn't these bad incentives or why as Dan points out the overall effect of media criticism about trump trump will always be limited. I mean there is definitely some benefit to working there but we are not like seven tweets. Maggie Haberman away from solving this problem like we also have to be clear we as progressives have the wrong view of the media. We had this vision of the media as this set set of referees and fact checkers who bring order to our messy politics and so in doing so we think they think it's their job. takedown trump that is not their job so if we continue to mythology is the media. We're never going to succeed. The communication strategy because it lends us to believe leave that the best way to communicate is talk to the media supposed to talk to people. What's even more unfortunate is that Republicans realized long ago that they needed to go around the traditional channel media and build their own channels of communication trump has a massive state adjacent propaganda machine that pumps his message out to his voters with tremendous disciplined? Frankly was not just Fox. It's the entire right-wing talk radio sphere. Beer it's Owen. It's Breitbart. It is like this. Plethora of online very sketchy digital outlets that are pumping trump propaganda into the ecosystem. Is Dan says right. Wing media goes well beyond Fox News and Breitbart to random corners of the Internet. You've probably never heard of Tair. McGowan knows these online worlds all too well and takes us down the rabbit hole. There's also publications that popped up like the big league. The Big League was started by twenty seven year old man who left Breitbart because he felt it had gone soft after trump was elected in the big league is notorious yes because they were the publication that released the north black face. Photo did participate in a dance contest. In which darken my face as part of a Michael Jackson Costume the yearbook photo was broken. Not by the New York Times but by big league politics a right wing media outlet run by a former BREITBART writer. This the new normal these strategically pushed it out and got the national media to cover it win. You know I was in a very politically vulnerable moment. Coming to the defense of a late abortion bill in the State House in Virginia this revenge politics media is being being used as a weapon to deploy this type of revenge politics after the election. So there are these all over the Internet and they're not just the ones that are so explicitly unapologetic about their political agenda. Like Breitbart and Fox. There's also sinclair a hundred and ninety three local television affiliates. Let's sinclair is a pro-trump Corporation. Why our cable news channels airing so much coverage of the trump Russia story so here are the options? It's bias against the president for higher ratings or it's a really important story and now these trusted local news. Brands friends are putting money behind facebook. Ads to their viewers endorsing and marketing trump Maga- hats the daily beast reports sports at least twenty-seven clear broadcasters posted items on their website starting on Thursday hyping a new keep America great had for sale and the trump campaign's website. The right right has built this infrastructure and now is pushing millions and millions of dollars a month behind the content and the messengers that have influence on their side. How on channels like facebook and Google? And we're not spending any money we're just relying on the mainstream media to do our job which they're not gonNa do do because they live in fear of being called the liberal fake news media that that if we're not spending at the same clip that trump and the Republicans are just to drive our offensive. Message were losing the information war. The good news is Tara. Has Some ideas about how the Democrats can catch up. I believe the only solution antidote to this challenge is to have our own communication like our own owned channels to communicate to people directly and that does not mean in. NFL areas ways does not mean spread liser misinformation. It's the opposite but we have to do. Is We actually have to compete tears.

USA In two thousand Sixteen Terrace started acronym her nonprofit digital firm that's creating progressive ads in content for twenty twenty acronym. mm-hmm isn't making these ads the same way it's always been done but the same old democratic ad firms. They're using an approach. That's both more creative. And more data driven we'll look at a very very large audience of people And take you know ten different messages. Around how trump has been really bad for the economy. So those messages could be you know the impact of offshoring jobs the tax cuts for the rich and squeezing the middle class further. The trade war. What have you and then for each of those messages will develop tons of content memes gifts videos etc then our creative director will go to the team and be like okay? What are all of the different visceral values driven identity driven ways? We can express this message. And they'll build out all this content and then what we do is we push it out to a broader audience. Audience of voters in say Michigan Pennsylvania Wisconsin. And then what we're doing is we are actually surveying groups of these voters who are getting all of this content Dan and learning on a biweekly basis. What of these messages? And what of the actual pieces of content were delivering is having the most impact impact at chipping away at trump's approval rating among those voters. In real time
