Brandon Tatum: The Left Thrives off of Double Standards

"Some journalists named Wesley Lowry because I'm very interested in your perspective on the left's reaction to the buffalo massacre. Let's listen to journalist Wesley Lowry to Brian stelter over the weekend on CNN. Let's be clear. The stuff Tucker and Laura Ingraham say every night, it could be written by white supremacists very often. There is a section of this manifesto where the shooter starts talking about people always say diversity is strength. How is it strength? I could hear it in Tucker's voice. He says this all the time, right? But the Ben Shapiro's of the world say this is a big chunk about the idea of genetic differences that could have been pulled from an Andrew Sullivan column, right? There are plenty of people in our politics in our media who advance these ideas and advance them frequently. Oh, so it's Ben Shapiro's fault, or it's Andrew Sullivan's fault, or Laura Ingram's father, public enemy number one, Tucker Carlson's fault. Officer Tatum, they just can't help themselves, can they? Oh, these people are deranged and they're out of their minds and they live and they thrive off a double standards. It's quite ironic that they're willing to, you know, put the blame on Tucker Carlson and other conservatives who may have some ideas that are accurate that this guy plagiarized and used to the detriment of other people. But they're not out here talking about Illinois or any of these Democrats who are literally telling white people that they're the enemy of the world. They are really creating in my opinion these homegrown terrorists by spending most of their time making white people feel horrible about existing in this country, making white male Christian straight men feel like that they are the enemy of the people, make wealthy white men feel like they're destroying America every minute because they've accomplished the level of success. I think that more so, those individuals who are saying are creating this negative rhetoric create these deranged lunatics that go out and do this.

David Zurawik: Elon Musk Buying Twitter Is Dangerous

"Listen to CNN contributor David juro wick with Brian stelter yesterday on CNN. They're reacting to Elon Musk purchasing Twitter and fulfilling his promise of free speech on that platform, free speech, terrifies them. You don't believe me? Listen to this. I think there's a bigger problem that when we focus on the personalities of people like Elon Musk and people say, oh, I think he learns thinking this or that. There's a bigger problem here about how we are going to control the channels of communication in this country. In 1927, we had the radioactive 1934, the communications act. Congress stepped in. We made rules. FCC wasn't great, but it's still regulating the broadcast industry. You can't use vulgar language. You can't do all these things with speech. We gave over our mount star airwaves. There are Internet waves to Mark Zuckerberg and Elon Musk. And we are in so much trouble because those guys believe in making money. We've already seen that with the 2016 election in Zuckerberg when he was taken rubles for ads from Russia and say, oh, I think it's crazy to think they had any influence on this election. Musk is the same. Musk doesn't want, you know, he's upset with the SEC, tried to quote dare they question him. You know what I'm saying? This is dangerous. We can't think anymore in this country. We don't have people. No, I'm serious. We don't have people in Congress who can make regulations that can make it work. I think we can look to the Western countries in Europe for how they are trying to limit it. But you need you need controls on this. You need regulation. You can not let these guys control discourse in this country or we are headed to hell.

Brian Stelter: Stay Home or Attend a Party Full of Freedom?

"He got on television yesterday and he said something that he couldn't have possibly planned to say or realized he should have said, you got to hear this. This is a guy making his living expressing his opinions, pretending to be a journalist, but he's not. He's a CNN guy, but you got to hear this. If you, if you get invited to something, where there are no rules, where there is total freedom for everybody, do you actually want to go to that party? Or are you going to decide to stay home? And that's a question for Twitter users. Some Twitter users might love the idea. There's going to be absolutely no moderation and no rules at all. Others might not want to be anywhere near that. Am I crazy Matt? No, no, you're right. And what happens to the advertising? I mean, if there's no moderation or little moderation to the advertisers stay away, what does that do to the business prospects for Twitter itself? Am I crazy? No, no, no, you're not crazy. If you had a choice between going to a party where there was freedom everywhere, wouldn't you just stay home? Wouldn't you just that's a guy on TV?

"This guy, Brian stelter, I understand that he's a pretty easy punching bag for anyone right of center or to the right, I guess liberals like him, I don't know. He's a peculiar little guy, the bald headed guy over on CNN. He follows the media for CNN. His story is a pretty interesting one. He started up, I forgot I always forget which side it was. Was it mediaite or TV news or maybe it was TV newser? He founded a media site like when he was a college kid. So he's always been this ambitious guy. And he wound up one of the stars of CNN. He's got a weekend show that covers the media and honest to goodness is capable of saying some of the stupidest things I've ever heard in my life. I would be so embarrassed, embarrassed, Yuri says it was TV newser that he found it. And I always recommend you go to TV news, he hasn't been with it for years now, but I always recommend if you want to see what the cable ratings look like. You want to see how bad Fox News is always beating CNN and MSNBC. You want to see the actual numbers TV newser has a ratings section

I like Brian Dunn is shell back in the old days. And you know, he sees a lefty, and he's way left, and his show is biased, and we all know. It's kind of a funny thing. It's like watching the browns, right? We're not going to win with Brian. Here's how he explains CNN plus yesterday. Here at CNN, new ownership decided to shut down the CNN plus streaming service less than a month after it was launched by the previous management team. The U turn was front page news. Stunning news, and painful news for everyone involved. Years of development possibly down the drain, some of the shows may never be seen. Hundreds of staffers may be laid off though the company is trying to place many of them in new jobs. Amid these bruising headlines, folks are trying to make sense of it. And some partisans are leaving to predictable talking points about politics. But the truth is, this was a corporate move.

A New Respect for the Original Founder of Twitter

"This is really something this next story I appreciate this, you know? I had kind of written Jack Dorsey off, but lately he's become a little bit more entertaining and perhaps a little bit more authentic. There are some pretty strong words, tweets, thoughts, from Jack Dorsey out this week. He was alleging an exchange on social media on none other than Twitter. The company he founded that he's on the board of and is about to step down from, that CNN created conflict during protests in Ferguson, Missouri. Remember that way back in, I guess it was 2014. So this was a thread about CNN and fake news, endorsing said, and I quote here, I know this from being on the streets of Ferguson during the protests and watching them try to create conflict and film it, causing the protesters to chant F CNN. It all started because CNN's media reporter, Brian stelter over there said, and I quote Tucker Carlson is always selling the same thing. This was a reference to a piece that he tweeted out about how Fox was trying to effectively sell doubt. And Dorsey wrote back and said, and you are all selling hope? In other words, I think he gets it? These mainstream media companies are all trying to sell something. And by the way, is not hope. I mean, he's being sarcastic there because you know, CNN is on one side of things. You get Fox on the other, but they're all, this is why I love, by the way, independent media. Again, make sure that you subscribe to this channel and to this podcast. But you know, they're all kind of, they've got bigger agendas. Anyway, newsmax is correspondent Alex salvi took to his Twitter account and accused Dorsey of trying to defend Carlson and then Dorsey responded saying, you know what? Quote, not defending a thing. And added up that he was adding that he was just holding up a mirror. So just a mirror at what they're all trying to do.

Christopher Phillips Questions Brian Stelter Over CNN's Ethics

"Kid named Chris Phillips, who's a freshman at the University of Chicago. And he went to a some panel discussion that the Atlantic magazine was hosting that Brian stelter from CNN was on the panel. And this young man stood up and said the following to CNN's Brian stelter. Hi, thank you for coming. My name is Christopher Phillips. I'm a first year at the college. My question is for mister stelzer. You've all spoken extensively about Fox News being a purveyor of disinformation. But CNN is right up there with them. They push the Russian collusion hoax. They push the Jussie Smollett hoax. They smear justice Kavanaugh as a rapist and they also smeared Nick salmon as a white supremacist. And yes, they dismissed the Hunter Biden laptop affair as pure Russian disinformation. With mainstream corporate journalists becoming little more than apologists and cheerleaders for the regime, is it time to finally declare that the canon of journalistic ethics is dead or no longer operative. All the mistakes of the mainstream media and CNN in particular seem to magically all go in one direction. Are we expected to believe that this is all just some sort of random coincidence or is there something else behind it? It's too bad it's time for lunch. You have 30 seconds. No, there's a clock that says 30 seconds, but I think my honest answer to you, and I will come over and talk in more detail after this. Is that I think you're describing a different channel than the one that I watch. But I understand that that is a popular right wing narrative about CNN. I think it's important. When we talk about shared reality and democracy, all of these networks, all these news outlets have to defend democracy. And when they screw up, admit it. But when Benjamin hall, the fox correspondent, was wounded in Ukraine. The news crews at CNN and The New York Times stopped what they were doing.

Michael Avenatti Convicted of Stealing From Stormy Daniels

"Attorney Michael avenatti has been found guilty of what? Stealing $300,000 from his own client stormy Daniels. And now avenatti has had it not to The White House, but to the big House. It remains an open question, what his sentence is going to be. But just to refresh, I've talked about this case before. Avenatti was accused and he's now found guilty of doing what? Well. When stormy Daniels signed up to write a book, she was apparently offered an advance of $800,000, but payable in three installments. So she got the first installment, but then avenatti when the second and third installment were due, avenatti set up his own account. And he essentially masqueraded as stormy Daniels. And he got the money sent not to stormy Daniels, but to his account, so he intercepted her money and took it for himself and used it on his own luxuries and to buy this and to buy that and to settle this debt and so on. And so stormy Dan is like, where's the money? And avenatti kept sort of putting her off and lying to her and in any case so she finally reported him. And so it turns out that he was found guilty, not just a theft, but also of wire fraud and of impersonating another person. So this is bad because when you add all this up, we're looking at, well, the aggravated identity theft charge. That carries a mandatory two years. So we know we're not going to be seeing avenatti for the next two years unless he's going to be doing CNN interviews with Brian stelter from

Remembering Mike Gallagher's '50 Things Liberals Love to Hate'

"I don't want to get personal with somebody like Brian stelter or Acosta. They're all just really, really fierce partisans. And they hate everything that Americans love. I wrote a book called 50 things liberals love to hate. And it was intended to be humorous, maybe you've read it. I hope you have. It's still available if you can get it on Amazon. It was years ago. What year did I write that book? Wouldn't we do that to Eric? Is that ten years ago, 15 years ago? It's a long time ago. But I had a ball because I took a chapter and devoted it to something that liberals hate, swimming pools, steakhouses, Walmart, American flag lapel pins. 50 things liberals love to hate. And of course I did it like chapters 50 through one. The final chapter just showed a picture of the United States of America, a map of the USA. That was the final thing liberals love to hate.

"brian stelter" Discussed on The Book Review

"Brian stelter joins us. . Now he is the anchor of CNN's reliable sources, , the host of its podcast and the author of a New New York Times bestselling Book Hoax Donald, , Trump Fox News, , and dangerous distortion of truth Brian. . Thanks for being here. . Thank you so much. . So you used to be my colleague here at the New York Times way back I don't know when exactly did you leave The Times? ? <hes> twenty thirteen. . Well. . So the moment I remember was in twenty eleven when this early documentary about the Times came out called page one and there was a line in that documentary in which the leat David car says, , I still can't get over the feeling that Brian stelter was a robot assembled to destroy me. . I, , haven't forgot that line. . Because I wonder if you're secretly three people you host. . A Show on CNN you write a daily newsletter you host a weekly podcast you have two small children, , and somehow you wrote a book on this extremely fast moving subject. . That is Donald Trump. . How did you handle that the two small children is the fun part they keep me <hes> saying you know David used to say I still miss him so much used. . To say, , what do you think the story is that I should tell us to say to sources you know if you were writing the story what would you right and that is what I was doing with folks at Fox News and these themes kept coming up especially last year, , which compelled me to go and try to get a book deal I think it. . was last that I wanted to do this and more that I felt like someone had too i. . hope that doesn't sound too cocky but it's true. . There's some things in life. . You just feel like the gotTa go tell this story and I think the only untold story of the trump era that's left maybe is the story of his boxers addiction so I did. . Carve out time in between my other jobs and and frankly wants the pandemic send us all home. . Put us on lockdown just grateful that my wife was able to help with the kids when I was having to finish the final chapters of this book. . So what is that story the relationship between Donald Trump and Fox News obviously, , it's the full subject of your book. .

"That's a scandal if someone like steve king was going to sweden or norway and meeting with neo nazi groups that would be front page news. One of the questions. I think we need to ask is is the fact that trump has lodged racist. Horrible attacks on these women has that made them sort of untouchable for us to cover an an accurate way. I think that's one of the problems of this moment that it's very hard to cover sort of complicated characters and stories like that because the president everything he touches becomes toxic and yet that's our job catherine.

There's not much more complex and that just certain the facts and trying to keep a sense of the broader water front of stories so that we keep things in context retainer credibility.

"I'm your host Brian Stelter, here with the podcast her a Paul Ryshkov. He's out with the relatively new angry Americans podcast, Paul. You've had some great guests in your first weeks doing this. Why did you decide to launch the podcast? I really felt like podcasting was a place where I could have real discussions. First of all, there's, there's a lot of issues that come from the national security defense community that I think are under report. But there's also an angry middle in this country. A disconnected middle of independence who are not diehard Democrats, and not diehard Republicans are the forty percent of unaffiliated, an independent Americans that often feel underrepresented in media, they look at MSNBC or FOX or even CNN, and they feel like they don't have a home. So I think podcasting was a place to try to give voice to that community and also to focus on issues. I care about and the coupon about podcasting is you don't have commercials for the most part, and you have this long form where you can really have honest conversations and for me that's that's been important. I really get to know. My guess we go pretty deep with Sarah, Jessica Parker for over an hour talking about how she started her business how she grew up her favourite car. I asked her what she's angry about, but I also ask her what she's happy about. And she gets into we, we always talk about politics and understanding that this moment in time. Is very important and asking people to expand upon that. So this week, I've got a celebrity chef Tom Kalicki. Oh, he talks about serving people at nine eleven after the towers went down. He was delivering rescue meals to people down there, and how that shaped his view of the world and his business. So it's a real opportunity, I think, to go deeper, but also, frankly, realized the limitations of podcasting, it's still sort of an elitist thing. So what I also do is put every podcast up on YouTube. We put it out everywhere we possibly can and try to make it available to everybody. No matter what kind of phone, you're on or no matter where you are. So in some ways, it's almost like the new public media. And I think that's an exciting landscape to be able to work it. Then there's any point is kind of the new public media and some of the democrat candidates doing a good job taking advantage of that. Not so much. Interestingly, not so much President Trump. We were talking before the break about Memorial Day weekend, and coverage of military issues. You think about the first couple of years of the Trump administration Trump was once surrounded by military officials. John. Kelly Gimenez taught McMaster. How do you think his relationship with the military has changed since those departures? It's a road almost completely it's falling fast. I mean maybe let me just break it down for you. We went from having General Mattis as the secretary defense who had many ways is the most revered combat leader of our generation in the Marine Corps. They call him Saint Mattis, their little shrines to Madison combat unit he is beloved by everybody from the highest ranks to lowest ranks. And now we've got a guy and Shanahan, who's never served in the military and was a Boeing executive, you know, their profiles couldn't be more different. And by the way, Shanahan, also hasn't been Senate approved yet. So the difference between those two types of people, I think reflect what's happened over the course of this administration. He used to be surrounded by my generals. Well, now he's surpri surrounded by his political people, and they tend to people who haven't served in the uniform. We know that, that, that folks, like, general Kelly are gone. We know that HR McMasters is gone. We know that Flynn may be going to jail. So these folks are not always the best representatives in the military..

"Sucked up so much or has supped up so much so much oxygen over the last couple of years that there were sundays in twenty sixteen and twenty seventeen where i am sure that people who would have traditionally watched the n._f._l. migrated over to cable news and there are statistics that show that happened so i think one thing that probably is true is that at least in terms of the n._f._l. a little bit of that a little bit of that oxygen in terms of yours went back to n._f._l. viewing as opposed to watch cable news during those prime time n._f._l. game all right so watching trump show instead dong the thing that i like about talking about t._v. ratings we can come up with ten different reasons all of them are going to end up being curl i spent talking to some c._b._s. executives yesterday and you know what they're most excited about is polar vortex because people are going to being inside the likelihood of them staying inside and watching a lot of the super bowl increases of just because it's cold outside the weather plays a really big factor in whether ratings go up ratings go down it really does and for all the fights on twitter about the partisan reasons about ratings sometimes it is just about the temperature outside this brings us to the advertising part of the story and sarah advertising expert ratings up five percent for n._f._l. games this season what does that mean for ads on the super bowl this sunday you know i think we're gonna see a lot of creativity in the advertising that we see this share and just the previews that we've seen so far there's been a lot of humor you know there's going to be a lot of celebrities in the spats from the backstreet boys two cardi b. and steve corral feel like creativity is really embracing humor whether that's in the you know trump's cycle that we're in the hard news cycle that we're in or what have you but i think you're gonna see some promising really creative ads come out of the super bowl to share how much do they charge you know how how much does c._b._s. say they're charging for the spots this year we're looking at upwards of five million per thirty second spot and isn't a real number we do they give discounts around that five million or is that a pretty serious number i you know i think that's the figure that we're working within that hovered around there for the past few super bowl games that we've seen i mean we're talking about huge expensive spots here so you better bring it if you're going to be in the game reading from your story on week you said ratings for last year's super bowl n._b._c. dipped to one hundred and three point four million viewers about a seven percent decrease from the year before when it was a one hundred and eleven point three million viewers on fox i mean both those numbers are tremendous but there was that dip last year what will be your forecast for this year hundred and three million was the number last year that's tough to say i mean i think you know giving the high ratings that we've seen this year for the league i think we're going to see higher than last year and as we've all said we're still talking about over one hundred million viewers here that's a huge audience to be able to capture especially live and that's just traditional t._v. get a little bit more viewership on the desert around streaming and of course around the world but u._s. at home on tv hundred and three million last year john venture a guess for this year i'm going with a hundred and ten million for the average for the four quarters yeah i'm gonna give you a gas but i'm also going to say if it's a blowout game who knows i mean there are so many factors that can do it but typically the ratings for the playoffs have been up about ten percent so if you go up about ten percent i'll go one hundred ten point one million just to buy one richard give a guess i like these these viewership yourselves right rules there with john trying to buy dollar i got to win the one thing john said ryan this is actually very true because john and i see this all the time is whether has a massive impact and it isn't hold will be cold.

"I'm your host, Brian Stelter. And I'm joined by Jason resign. And Joel Simon the authors of two new books. Joe's book is we want to negotiate the secret world of kidnapping, hostages and ransom. It's out from Columbia global reports. Jason's book is prisoner. It's about his experience as the Washington Post say. Tehran bureau chief being held behind bars for nearly a year and a half in Iran. Let's talk a little bit more about the reasons why these books are such a great companions. You know, we were talking Jason about you know, like to be in your shoes. And not know what's going on outside the efforts to try to get you freed Joel from your perspective. What's it like in your shoes? When you're advocating for journalists trying to get them out of jail. And you know, they don't know what's going on. Well, I don't know. I mean, that's that's one of the things is sometimes it's I I hope they do know. And I hope you don't. But somehow we're gets to them and this applies the hostage situations as well because the negotiation process, you know, there's usually one hostages are taken. There's usually a proof of life. So you know, that's a signal to the hostage that negotiations underway. And I wanna I wanna pick up on something that Jason said he talked about. There was a moment. What he realized that he had value to his captors in any hostage situation. Whether whether it's a traditional hostage situation involving the terror organization or state hostage is the value of the hostage that keeps them alive. And it is the only point of consensus between the people holding the hostage and the people trying to win the hostages release. Because if they're not alive, they have no value. And so one of the things I look at it in the book is what is what is the most strategic way to affirm. The value of the hostage, which is what fact what keeps them alive? And declaring that you will not negotiate that you will not make concessions completely undermines the value, the hostage and actually increases the risks to the hostage, which is one of the reasons why one of things I looked in my books. I looked at the data and. If you look at European governments, which traditionally do pay ransom know, most of their hostages, come home, the vast majority, and if you look at Americans who are held hostage where we don't negotiate and we don't pay ransom about twenty five percent of American hostages taken rance taken hostage by terror groups die. So the question is were sacrificing lives. What are we getting in return? And this case with you Jason again, not a terrorist group, although people use all sorts of words, label Iran, we're talking about a country that had taken prisoner. There was a monetary exchange. This four hundred million dollars that was paid tell us about it. Tell us about the context of it. And and how it's viewed visa vs your release. Well, look, I mean, I think that a lot of people have used this as a talking point over the last three years and changed since I was I was released because it's a large amount of money. And it was interesting in the fact that it was cash. But you know, I've I've dug deep into that whole process as we all know there were negotiations going on between Iran and world powers most specifically the United States, and you know, part of the deal was for Iran to to shut down key aspects of their Tomic program in exchange for lifting of sanctions another aspect of that was. A prisoner. Swap of Iranians who were being held in American prisons on sanctions related violations in exchange for myself and other Americans. And then the third piece of the puzzle was was this money that was Iran's money that had been seized by the US government after the revolution. It was a down payment that the Shah had made on a weapons deal, and it was being deliberated in international courts. There's there's a there's an actual tribunal set up to deal with complaints between the US and Iran because there's no diplomatic relations. That court was set to to make a decision in Iran's favor. And it was going to be to the tune of seven several billion dollars and US negotiators decided. Well, let's let's you know. Minimize the cost and closed that deal because they were going to have to close that deal, regardless..

"But be open minded, I I mean, the previously unthinkable has become not just thinkable. But it's being talked about all over TV. The FBI opened up an investigation into the president of the United States to see whether or not he was working on behalf of Russia. My reaction, I Peter it's remarkable sentence that you just read on national television remarkable to think that the president of the United States would be the subject of a counterintelligence investigation. You have to take a moment to digest. Yes. Let's take a moment. Let's take more than a moment to digest this. Let's not let this story. Just breeze by like everything else in the news cycle. These days the US president possibly working for the Russians possibly an unwitting pawn something the FBI was investigating. Why are these leaks happening? And why are they happening now? What does Robert Muller? No. How much longer will? We all have to wait for answers. Let's ask CNN political analyst Carl Bernstein. He's here with me in New York. This morning, Carl I'm I'm a little frustrated by by how long this is all taking I think Rudy Giuliani Giuliani has a point when he says come on. Let's see the evidence at some point. Don't the American people deserve these answers sooner rather than later. I think you'd have to wait until the end of a very deliberative investigations Muller is making and what we know what that Washington Post story. And the New York Times story show is that Muller is operating as has been members of the president's own national security, deep Mattis among others, some people who are still there some who have left that. Indeed, he has become a pawn of the Russians now whether that is a winning pawn and unwitting pawn a half winning pond that is something that perhaps molars. Report will tell us because one of the things mother is doing is that he is looking at the obstruction the obstruction of Justice by the president of the United States that that seems to be a parent, and whether the obstruction itself has furthered Putin's aims in becomes part of some kind of collusive notion UT this up on Wednesday. I notice this on interesting Cooper so Wednesday night, you teed up. This exact point that the post and the times are now making let's play that clip. I from Wednesday night. There's been an obstruction of Justice. There's no question about that. No question about the president's involvement in that obstruction. One of the questions Muller is trying to answer. I believe is whether that obstruction itself furthered the interest of the Russians, bingo, you said the obstruction is not separate from the collusion question. These investigations are linked exactly what these newspapers are signaling this weekend. So how'd you know that where is this coming from? Well, first of all the New York Times in Washington Post were more advanced on the story than I was. But I did know something and part of what I know comes from lawyers of some of the other defendants in this matter who have appeared before Muller, including members of the joint defense team, which collaborates with the White House, and those lawyers believe the president has been lying at every turn about his relationship with Russia about. Those of his aides look lettuce look at all the lives. Follow the money. Follow the lies. They are all mostly and most vehemently about Russia. Whether we're talking about Flynn, Trump, his son Kushner back to lying about questions having to do with Russia about what happened at the Trump Tower meeting the president of the United States drafts. A totally false statement about what happened at that meeting that his son was at look you set it up, right? We don't know the answers. But what we do know is that Donald Trump has tried to convince us that unless there is some kind of smoking gun. We're recording of him in the room with Putin saying yes, flatter Mer. I'll do bidding there's been quote. No collusion. That's nonsense. What this counterintelligence investigation was about unprecedented. The FBI and this is not about the deep state. This is about the most. Serious counter intelligence people we have in the US government saying oh my God. The president's words in action lead us to conclude that somehow he has become a winning unwitting or half winning pond, certainly in some regards to Vladimir Putin. Look Trump keeps going back to the idea we need better relations with Russia could be he could. Well, be right..

Megan Kelly officially out of the peacock network where we'll see land next lots to get to the verse. This thought about the news cycle where the news is not just a rough draft of history. As many often say, it's a woefully incomplete. Rough draft sometimes the most important facts, the single most important details are not filled in until years later, sometimes the secrets are buried so deep in other times with staring us all right in the faces. Just so. So uncomfortable that we try to look the other way all of this is my way of asking what will the final draft say about President Trump? We know what the incomplete rough draft says it says there's something very fishy between Trump and bottom of Putin people been asking for months for years. What does Putin have on Trump has trumping compromised, especially after the Helsinki summit, journalists and experts looked at Trump's behavior and said, they saw something strange something sinister now come these back to back New York Times and Washington Post stories the times revealing to the FBI opened a counterintelligence inquiry in may two thousand seventeen to see whether Trump was secretly working for Russia. Maybe they thought maybe he was knowingly working on Russia's behalf or maybe he just unwittingly fallen under Moscow's influence. So that's the times the post twenty two hours later reported. The Trump is quote gone to extrordinary length. To conceal the details of his conversations with Putin keeping his own aides in the dark and at one point taking his own interpreters notes Trump when given a chance to flatly deny anything untoward. He skipped the opportunity. Are you now or have you ever worked for Russia? Mr president. I think is the most insulting thing I've ever been asked. I think it's the most insulting article I've ever had written. That is not a no. The Trump went on. Let's listen to more what he said next. And if you read the article you'd see that they found absolutely nothing. But the the headline of that article it's called the failing New York Times for a reason thriving New York Times did not report that they found up. Silly nothing. What the times actually said was quote, no evidence has emerged publicly the Mr. Trump was secretly in contact with or took direction from Russian government officials publicly they may out found nothing. The government officials may have found nothing at all. Or they may have found a lot. But it hasn't been made public. We don't know. This is what I mean when I say that the news is a woefully incomplete draft of history. Journalists are trying their best to get to the bottom of this journalists and commentators try to fill in the holes with speculation and conjecture and all types of theories, but we do not have answers to the pressing questions posed by these two huge newspaper stories. Sometimes I think about just how little we know in the moment when we're covering stories like this. I think back to the RNC convention running into Paul Manafort sizing him up quizzing him about Trump. And now now that he's in solitary confinement somewhere in Virginia. I think about all the secrets he was keeping the crimes and the cover-ups. And how there was so so much we didn't know back then we didn't know the actual story that was right underneath. Yes. There were suspicions at the time. But the story was incomplete and the same thing is true with Michael Cohen. He sat right here on this set defending Trump on this program and lots of others. We we texted over the years, but not about what really mattered, but really mattered. We're his secrets and his lies. And of course, now he's about to go off to prison and prosecutors say Cohen acted at Trump's direction. These these stories they are they are the rough draft. But sometimes the most important parts of the story are known for years, and sometimes all we can do in the media is asked the right questions, stay skeptical..

"And we're back now on the reliable sources podcast on your host, Brian Stelter? And I'm talking with Randy freer. He's the CEO of Hulu one of the biggest streaming websites on the planet. I asked him about his rivals you been mentioning Netflix. And some of these other rivals. When we say, Hulu is at twenty five million subscribers that sounds really big until we compare it to Netflix. And I wonder first of all if you dread the questions about an afflicts and second how you avoid feeling like you're in a shadow that Netflix casts over the industry. The good news in that is Netflix is and has been a leader in this done a really excellent job at leading that process. So it's we'd much rather. Follow a great company. That's doing interesting things. Then follow something that's messy. So we've been able to as I said row with current and they're still out ahead of this race on on some level. So that's been okay. And from a consumer standpoint, we don't think it actually will end up being choice between Netflix, and who we think that on one level. I think people win when they wake up and go, so wait a minute. I can get I can get Hulu on demand and live. I can make choice of with or without ad and net flicks. Right. And I get that for let's call it sixty dollars. And I have all the television ever made that sounds like a pretty good bargain versus what was previously. Let's pay one hundred dollars have. Five hundred channels. Let me see if I can navigate what's on. I can't really figure out how to use the on demand. So I think the next few years it into the next decade. You know, it's going to be all about how you serve consumers in a way that makes sense. And I don't think there's going to be one single choice. So yes, we compete with everyone for time and for customers, but at the same time, I think the, you know, the general industry there's gonna be more than one winner. Here's none zero sub game some game in the process. Of course, that brings us to CNN's parent Warner media and Disney planning these big streaming services for later this year right now Warner media owns ten percent of Hulu and Disney owns thirty percent. And through the pending Disney FOX deal Disney will acquire another thirty percent of holy sixty percent of on do. We know what that's gonna look like. I mean, do we know what? Disney plans to do when it owns sixty percent of your site today. I don't have any insight as to what? Going to change or how they're thinking about what that looks like everything that we've been led to believe, and we've been told that we're gonna continue to operate, and we'll have responsibility store other minority shareholders. So that we make sure that we do that. So they've been super supportive all of our owners have been supportive of our investments, they want to invest more. They wanna grow faster they want to do more. So I think we're in really good shape as it relates to our position in the industry and our position for however are ownership ends up changing, percentage wise, and there's been talking about one or media selling its ten percent stake. I worked there. I don't know. What's going to happen? Do you know, do you know, I'll let no know I don't know what's going to happen. I think I think you know, AT and T mentioned in their analysts day that they were willing to sell. We are. No, we don't have any conversations going on with him at this point in time. But we'll see what the future holds. And how do you view one or media's plans and Disney's plans to launch Disney? Plus and heaven knows how many other streaming services are out there that are that are going to launch. I know that it's on zero sum game. But people aren't going to pay for twentieth. Are they what's the what's the ceiling on this world? Yeah. I don't know what the ceiling is. Here's what what I believe in. What I think I think Hulu is in an excellent position to be the base and foundation for somebody's choice of TV in the home, and then like HBO.

"The way we covered Hillary Clinton that's true than she does the way we cover Donald Trump. So this one little strand while it's not being reported inaccurately has been blown out of proportion as her main point, and it is one of many many points all of which have some merit. But this idea that news coverage of Trump is negative is to negative. Whoa. Where does the truth lot? I disagree wholeheartedly with that. He's a singular president. He was a singular candidate. No one has. Lied like him. I mean at that altitude. No, one has had the sort of ethical problems that he does no one has had the areas of ignorance if you to call that out accurately is to end up with a body of coverage that is unusually negative, but it is absolutely appropriate to the man and the situation at hand so negative but accurate. Yeah. Anti-trump connotes driven by some sort of animists, regardless of the facts. I don't think we've been anti-trump. I think we have been negative. And I think that's the only honest way to cover this president. What about tone, though, do you think the tone is sometimes yes, I think the one way in which we leave ourselves vulnerable tone can become mocking and sneering. And I don't mean just on the opinion pages where that's not so unusual. But sometimes in news coverage when we do that we heard ourselves because we give his supporters away to say, look they can't give a fair shake because they feel so negatively toward him. So I think we do have to watch your tone. Karen is a democratic strategist where do you come down on this anti Trump conversation? Well, a couple of things I mean, I think I look forward to reading the book because certainly as has having worked for Hillary Clinton. I did think that. The the way she was covered. And some of the ways frankly in two thousand sixteen that Trump was covered may have meant that initially. There was a little bit of an over correction to in the way that that Frank was discussing, but I think again, this goes back to our nomenclature right in this is something as we go into twenty twenty and as we evaluate Donald Trump, and sort of the way language, and our use of language has really shifted. You know, it is not anti Trump when you say that Robert Muller is investigating him for potential collusion, or that you know, that that someone that there is the evidence that there was campaign finance violations. Those are not negative that is not anti-trump. Those are anti Trumpers pro-trump is the wrong framing the wrong. I think that's absolutely the wrong access. I think it has to be more about what is false. And what is true? And then what is opinion and and yet, but what the thing that Trump does. So well. Is again lumps. It all together and his people and frankly, many Republicans in their defensive him. They they say, oh, you're just attacking Trump you're being anti-trump, which makes it then harder to suss out. What is fact versus fiction versus opinion. Trump also has a booster network, he has booster outlets cheerleaders that are unlike anything we've seen before in terms of the amount of coordination and collaboration that exists between the White House, and these pro Trump outlets. I mean, David Frum is that the other part of this anti-trump conversation. We have to include. No, I think the question is a false premise relative to the truth. The prestige press in this country has a pro-trump bias a relative to the truth. Trump gets easier coverage than he deserves the surest way onto the op-ed page of a prestigious paper is to come up with some angle to explain why something the president has done is less crazier dangerous than it seems the the networks like this one are give a lot of airtime to people who. Normally should be would be working for the home shopping network. Wouldn't be on at all if they will say. It'd be nicer than that. You're saying Trump on a curve that the cover is on a curve, and that some of the things that you know, to be true are so serious that.

"But that is sort of cheat that has been the exception to the rule if you read the coverage of Elizabeth Warren's announcement, you would have almost you'd have a real sense of how political reporters project voters will think of Elizabeth Warren, but very little about who she is what kind of person she is. And what kind of president she would be. And that's that's failure. On behalf of the political media and caring. What about the caring? Go ahead today. That's that's an important point. Because I will tell you in Stacey Abrams race that was really critical for a number of reasons number one because most of the even the national media and the Georgia-based media kept talking about viability. Can't you win? Can she win and race versus what she was actually talking about? Which was you know, three things healthcare jobs in education, and one of the so I would add to what Dan is saying so campaigns definite. We have to have their own ways to have a direct conversation with voters that Sterkel events. What will be kind of the other noise of because as you say it's click bait, it's it's eyeballs. It's you know, what's the latest. You know, crazy things somebody said, but I also think in twenty twenty this is why the presidential debates will be so critical because this this this will be periods of time where you have Democrats. Hopefully, having the opportunity to have serious constructive policy conversations, there will be differences, and hopefully the coverage won't just focus on those differences as battles. But rather as you know, well, what are the what are those differences really mean for people? But that that should be a time. Those debates will be a time when the American people can hear directly from democratic candidates without the comparison of how does that stack up against Donald Trump, which can't be the the yardstick by which we measure as Dan pointed out who's good president. And yet impeachment will contain. You to come up as a topic? There's two kinds of Democrats once who wanted to impeach him right now and one to say it's not quite time yet that's going to keep coming up and there's no way to avoid the impeachment conversation. Well, right. If I may I think it was Republicans who made impeachment such a topic of conversation during the please do. Doing the mid time elections all every time. I will every time I would go on to do it interview. My Republican colleagues would bring up impeachment, even though no Democrats across the country were running on impeachment, folks. The only person running ads on impeachment was time Cy and he wasn't on the ballot in two thousand eighteen until it was not a major topic of conversation. Now, we do have. Yes. But she did to leave an additional Democrats who even introduced articles of impeachment in this new congress, and it isn't question you have to answer. But it is not as prevalent of a question in the Democratic Party as I would like to think it is. But this goes back to Democrats and even the media largely we are having a conversation that has been framed by friends on the right? That is something that Republican party is very, well, if they have trained the conversation, and so we are then participating in the conversation using the language and the talking points in the measuring sticks of the Republican party when they may not even be the facts that presentable must thing Dan before break, your you talked off air about golden age journalism, but. Also a garbage of journalism. Tell me what you mean by that. Yeah. I think the very important caveat is we are living in a golden age of investigative and accountability. Accountability journalism stuff that the New York Times Washington Post CNN, BuzzFeed, others have been doing to shine a light on what's happening in government local in nationals very impressive..

"And welcome back to the reliable sources podcast and Brian Stelter here with Connie Schultz, the columnist and journalism professor who is married to Senator Sherrod Brown cutting. Thanks for joining me again. I wanna talk to you about the way some of the twenty twentieth. Speculations already happening some of the stories about possible. Tender's you've been outspoken about some some of the way these stories are being framed, you know, big picture view of this when reporters right about democratic candidates are there certain misnomers or or misconceptions that come up again. And again, I know all about the rights criticism of the press, but there's Chris from the left as well. And I wonder if you have critiques of how Dem's are covered by the mainstream media. Well, I certainly. I what I worry about is. We're going to do what we did in fifteen sixteen. I remember being on a panel discussion led by Chuck Todd in Cleveland the day before the first Republican debate in Cleveland. Remember that beckoned fifteen and Trump was the big joke. But everybody wanted to talk about Trump, and I was getting a little frustrated because I'm in the battleground state of Ohio, we've got John casick who suddenly everybody's describing as a moderate. I covered them for years. And I knew it wasn't a moderate. And and I felt like that the narrative was getting away from us pretty quickly. And it was going to be all Trump all the time. I'm not blaming the media solely for what happened in terms of elevating Donald Trump in the minds of voters, but we certainly were engaged in that at a level. I'd never seen before. And for me the crux of it for me came when I was invited to be on a show on MSNBC during that year. And I I'm very fond of many people there. They were in Cleveland. Could I come on the show could we so we are at a coffee shop waited the entire hour because they cited to go and cover dot. Trump's speech live just a candidate speech in the middle of the day, the whole thing and the the host was frustrated. I was certainly frustrated was a waste of my time. I never went on. And it wasn't about me getting airtime. I don't I tend to say no more often than yes to television. But what worried me as well of MSNBC is doing this. I can only imagine what it's looking like over at FOX. We got really Namur of this quotable nonsense that was that he was engaging in. And I don't think we saw how could get away from us. And once and I do think there was a lot of series coverage of him before the election. But we that ball was already so big and as a bolder in it's rolling down the hill. And we're trying to stop and say way shove that aside. Here's what we ought to be looking at it. And I think it was too late for a lot of it. I'd like to not do that. Again. I'd like us in this would like it to be not first of all every time. Donald Trump wants to insult somebody's intelligence or appearance, or you know, this is all coming. Can we do more? It's a fact he said it we. To cover him. I really do believe that. But we also have responsibility to try to focus more on issues. I know we say this every presidential campaign, Brian. But if we have not learned that lesson from sixteen and I worry when we have for example, the coverage about comparing Elizabeth Warren, for example to Hillary Clinton right away. Why because they're the females that that's not a reason to to meet be comparing them. And fortunately, a lot of reporters who have covered both of them started pushing back on Twitter when that political headline came out the idea that Trump sucked up all the oxygen in two thousand sixteen. I do wonder if that's going to be repeated. Now, I wonder if he's going to be able to frame the democratic race, for example by attacking Warren or attacking others. Then too often the story becomes Trump insults or Trump is in a feud with blink. When in fact, they're not feuding, Trump assistant salting them. Right. And I think that way down in the story. You can say with the latest insult. He's got. Right. I don't think we should ignore it. But but I think, but also frankly, I was just ask yesterday by somebody who was she was doing a store and she wanted to know what is our role in candidates, helping them get their message out..

"And this weekly podcast is our chance to talk in depth with media leaders and newsmakers. But how the media really works and what we can do better. So let's start the year and get into it with our first guest Connie Schultz. She's a Pulitzer prize winning columnist and journalism professor at Kent state who also happens to be married to Senator Sherrod Brown counting. How does that work? I think you're the only person in journalism with this unique situation. Well, how does what work which part? Do you want to know about being a journalist but being married to a Senator? Well, it helps that I'm a newspaper columnist, right? I've been a I was a calmness. What I meant shared. I just started writing my column sixteen years ago this month that we bet. And so I'm paid to give my opinion, which is helpful. I have to be as transparent as I possibly can. Which is good practice for any journalist. Frankly, I will say there's a little bit of a difference. I know plenty of journalists tickly in Washington who are married to people who could be perceived as a potential conflict, but most people don't know who they're married to. So the transparency issue doesn't seem to work the same way. Sometimes. And I don't mean that as a criticism. I just it makes it perhaps unique in my instance, it most people know who my husband is right. You know? But you are I do have to be careful if he is shepherding abilities, the one pushing something through have to be careful not to be writing about something that he's championing on the other hand, I'm not going to be the least but defense about writing about. Issues. I've always cared about women's rights, for example, abortion rights worker's rights. LGBTQ community writes a lot of that stuff. I been writing about long before I was a columnist covering it in different ways. So you know, it really helps to know who you are into be pretty certain on who you are. So that you don't let other people chip away at your identity when it comes to doing what I do. But many of your passions overlap with his which of course, makes a lot of sense. It also makes for a good marriage. Yeah. Yeah. And tell me about what it's like to be a columnist who's the swearing who was there for for all the festivities of the start of a new year new session. Well, because I'm so mindful of what it means to be a journalist right now in this country as journalists as a friend of so many journalists as a person who's teaching the next generation helping to teach the next generation of journalists it weighs heavily on me. What the message has been from this. Why? House and particularly from this president, and I don't see any point in. It I like knowing that or pussyfooting around it. He's been calling us. The enemy of the people is becoming increasingly dangerous to be journalists in the world. And unfortunately, it has the potential become increasingly dangerous to be a journalist in America. And we saw as, you know, a number of deaths of journalists in this country violent us in the last year. So I come at this always as journalists. I how can I not this is how I made my living for more than three decades. And yes, I'm married to a member of the Senate. But when people ask me what it's like to be married to a Senator, I always respond. I know what it's like to be married to share it right here. Every Senator is different. And every spouse of the Senator is different. I understand that..
