Bond Voyage

"We're going to start in the early nineties back before this shift. When the old rules about government borrowing still applied. Bill clinton had just been elected president. He appointed an economist named laura tyson to be one of his top advisors and she looked at the economy and she saw this glaring problem year after year. Both government deficits and interest rates. Were going up and then he said omega if we don't get a hold of this federal deficit than that trend will continue. Those rates will continue upward. That was a very significant concern. Higher interest rates were concerned for a couple of reasons for one thing. Obviously they meant that the government had to pay more to borrow money but also when interest rates for the government went up. Interest rates also went up for everybody else. And that's it up this whole cascade of problems so we're people won't buy as many houses. There won't be as many houses constructed in their wealth as much capital equipment invested in and investments in important part of the Economic growth in your all sorts of every interest sensitive part of the economy the way the government runs a deficit. The way it borrows money is by selling bonds treasury bonds. The government says to really anybody. Okay lend us whatever one hundred dollars and in say ten years we will pay you back with interest will pay you back one hundred twenty dollars. The bond is basically the government's i. Iou you that it will pay back that loan with interest and during the clinton administration because of that link between deficits and interest rates. Everybody in the white house talked about treasury bonds about the bond market time. James carville was a political advisor to president. Clinton was just an obsession. In the early days of clinton's everybody say what's the bond market could house bot mocking react to hell multiple. i don't know it just became this omnipresent. The heart of every conversation. James carville was not an economics guy but as he spent time at the white house he realized that sort of bizarrely all these people who worked there making policy the people who had what seemed like the most powerful jobs in the world. We're in fact terrified of the bond market so when a reporter from the wall street journal called up carville to talk about the bond market. He came up with this line that became sort of famous or at least bond market famous kid. I wanted to grow up with four hundred hitter. The pope and the president. But i just want to be the bond. Market's gonna scare the hell out of everybody pleat. What did he say. A what a hundred hitter like in baseball pope the president baseball. I cannot tell you how many times he said that's me. Every meeting every meeting a lot of my memories are about carville sort of making jokes about you. Know you issues as a bond trader bond traders. These are the people who work in finance all around the world who manage a bunch of money. Generally other people's money pension funds or college endowments that kind of thing and every day they decide what bonds to buy and what bonds to sell what companies and countries to lend to and what companies and countries to not lend to to stop lending to and like with any lender bond traders worry about lending more money to a borrower who is already borrowing a lot because all that borrowing makes it more risky and so to compensate for that risk bond traders demand a higher interest rate. They stop lending until rates. Go up and this bond traders demanding higher interest rates when the government is borrowing more money. This is the scenario that everyone was so worried about people. Were so afraid of this that there was even a special term for the bond traders. Who do this bond vigilantes. Bill clinton has convinced. The bond vigilantes are scary and in fact he decides the us needs to bring the deficit down. He decides to build a whole economic plan around getting rid of the deficit. One of the economists he brought in to make that happen was jason and a central argument. That we made was if you do this. It will lower interest rates and interest rates are lower will have more investment and more economic growth and sort of amazingly. All of this happened. They did raise taxes and cut spending and get the deficit down. In fact by the end of the clinton administration the deficit felt all the way to zero. And what came next was sort of a golden moment for the economy in silicon valley. There was the dot com boom but really the whole economy was doing great businesses of all kinds. Were doing well. Ordinary workers were getting breezes lower deficits lead to lower interest rates which led to more investment. And that was good for basically everybody. The system was working. The next big moment in the story comes right after the financial crisis of two thousand eight and this is the moment when everything is about to change when this big shift in the way the world works is about to happen but nobody quite nosy yet. Brock obama has just been elected. President obama brings in clinton's guy. Jason furman as one of his economic advisors and ferment. Goes into this meeting to discuss. How big of a stimulus. Bill obama should push for as he takes office. We met with the president-elect december sixteenth two thousand eight and we're all crowded together in a conference room. I think it was in a law firm in chicago and he wanted it to be big. He wanted to be bold but there was this worry. The stimulus was going to be funded with deficit. Spending government was going to borrow the money. And some of obama's own economic advisers worried that borrowing and spending too much money might actually harm the economy for that classic reason

Biden Signals Break With Trump Foreign Policy in a Wide-Ranging State Dept. Speech

"Us president joe biden last night delivered his first major speech on foreign policy. Since taking office it would be an exaggeration to report that. His address amounted to the unveiling of a full-scale biden dr doctrine but it was nevertheless and as was doubtless intended a statement. That things are going to be done differently. Certainly in comparison with the preceding four years on joined first of all monaco's news editor chris. Cho- mac chris. What lipped out you. As the the headlines from biden speech so andrew first of all As you alluded to there the overarching goal of the speech was one of tone if you will To really highlight the return of diplomacy to to really the center of foreign policy making in the us. Joe biden of course made this speech at the state department itself. Which in itself was a signal of that and you know. His comments were along. Those lines of america cannot afford to be absent from the world stage. As he put it america's back he focused on allies of course in particular bringing allies into conversations in order to also put more pressure on america's adversaries and in that sense we heard the clip at the top of the briefing That was the headline if you will about russia That you know he talked about taking a much harder line particularly when it comes to russia's meddling in diplomacy whether that's in the us or also for that matter charging alexei navalny But also at the same time you know it's interesting to watch what actually happens in concrete terms because for example even on russia You know he also highlighted the fact that the nuclear start treaty was Was relaunched if you are was extended just a day before this speech so there is a bit of a give and take. There was a lot of bluster in this speech but in terms of his concrete actions you know. Part of his part of his message was with allies. We can do more. We can bring pressure to bear on autocracies of the world But also therefore perhaps be successful in cooperating them with them where necessary a couple of other points. I would just highlight one. That was interesting was he. Promised a review of the defense force posture of the us. Also interesting that he sort of you know made that announcement at the state department. The point for him was to realign the us defense posture with its foreign policy. Goes he made a point of saying that. At least for the moment not troops would be leaving germany which was a key Decision that donald trump had been had made. He signed an executive order to restart. The refugee admissions program. Raising refugee admissions to about one hundred and twenty five thousand people per year. That was significant. And then as we're going to be talking about particularly ending support for the war in yemen that was really one of the key headlines that we'll get to one final thing i'd say biggest difference perhaps Or biggest thing that he didn't say Absent was iran. Because of course there are expectations that biden will rejoin the us will rejoin the iran nuclear deal. That was agreed Prior to you know under Brock obama and that donald trump pulled out of he didn't mention that specifically iran itself was Surprisingly absent perhaps they're just waiting to decide what to where to go from here on that

Barack Obama blames rap music for Donald Trump’s increased support among Black male voters

"Barack Obama said. Well, the reason black man voted for Trump 20% is because you know, trump embodies swagger. He embodies greed. He embodies wealth and, you know Sexism. That's what the rap music is all about, says Brock. Obama thought you like rap music if Donald Trump diss rap music and said The reason people are voting for me is because of the macho culture as expressed in rap music, he'd be accused of racism. We do not have time for this kind of feelings. You don't understand black culture. You have no idea what it's like to be an African American. Obama says. The reason black man voted for me is because of the rap music and the image portrayed in the rap music that mirrors the image that Donald Trump has Wow. The music made me vote for Donald Trump. Why doesn't The RNC just play rap music and commercials because, after all, it makes you vote for Donald Trump.

Standing Rock With Cody Two Bears

"So I'm really looking forward to today's guest cody to bears. For as long as anyone can remember, America has been trying to come to terms with questions of race and equality. Much of our focus has been on the African American community and for good reason. However far too often overlooked and forgotten are the people whose ancestors inhabited this majestic land for generations before the first white man set foot on the continent. Today I am talking with my friend, cody to bears and the Standing Rock Sioux. Cody has been at the center of his people's battle against the Dakota pipeline which served their sacred land. So here today, and then there's my pleasure to have cody to bear and to talk his people and share his story. To Cody. Welcome. Thank you so much for being here. Thank you Erin it's it's a pleasure to be a part of your show. Very excited about this discussion and also thinking me also like to thank you for a lot of the work that you have done in year history in your past of protecting water rates in this country in the world it just to bring up a the voice of the voiceless for them to stand up for what's right is very, very important than it falls right in line with their native American heritage and traditions and customs that we still follow today. Well it's it's been my privilege and to have an understanding of. which so much of a cause possibly forgotten about or moved away from or for many reasons thought it was being in fact, protected our land, our water and it hasn't. And so can you give the listeners background please and tell us about your people and and everything that has been happening with you up at standing rock. Yeah. So just to let you know I'm still very young man I'm still thirty five years old of course but. Yeah I've I've learned a lot along the way at the same time I got the privilege and honor to be able to. Serve my people from. Twenty down twenty thirteen to twenty seven in the Standing Rock Sioux Tribal Council So as one of the youngest elected leaders are standing rock, Sioux travel history at that time. So I got to serve four years from community in the crazy part of that whole situation is that. In two, thousand, thirteen, my first year in office we got. President Barack Obama to come standing rock in my community to in cannonball, which were encampments the protests all went down at the northern border of our reservation boundaries. That's the community that I represented for years for my tribe and now what a coincidence off fast forward two years later. Brock Obama had to make a tough decision to try to protect. Our water in our rights and Bustan for indigenous issues while he came previously two years ago to our lands and promised us that he would do what he can to help our people. So what a coincidence that now four years that we definitely hadn't standing rock during that time Since then I've been out of politics outside of twenty seventeen I told myself you know. Like to protest about it, talk about it the environment but you know it's time to start to be about it, and so that's why I started my own initiative on my own nonprofit called indigenised energy, which currently now we have the largest solar farm on standing rock three miles away from the pipeline crossing in north. Dakota which is the largest solar farm in North Dakota to date. So we'd we did remarkable things two years after the pipeline and now the protests. So we're doing what we can try to live by that and. Keep pushing to go hundred percent renewable within reservation boundaries

Why Buchanan County, Virginia’s election results are important

Why Buchanan County, Virginia’s election results are important

"Buchanan County gave President trump his biggest margin of victory in the two thousand sixteen presidential election nearly eighty percent voted for him compared to just over eighteen percent for Hillary Clinton. President trump has done little to expand his political base since then and to secure victory this time around, he'll need to maintain his base in working class comedies like the Canon. So how is support in Buchanan holding up this time around and what can you tell us about trump's base across the country? We turn now to our senior editor Bob Davis Hi Bob thanks for being here. Sure. Thanks for inviting me. So, tell us a little bit more about the canons economy which has relied heavily on coal mining has that changed during the pandemic what's going on there now? Will you know you voted Cannon County and you can read about the pandemic and people will tell you how it's affected them. But you don't honestly see it. It is a place where few people wear masks where people are back in their offices not in general not observing social distancing and it is a place where the pandemic has moved through the county just as it has in other places. So what? You see for the pandemic is, for instance, the high school which was went virtual in the spring they tried a mixture of in-person and virtual mostly in person for the full the issue there one reason an additional reason there to go in person compared to other places is you know it's it's a place that's full of mountains and valleys, and the the Internet reception's not very good in a lot of places so. That would argue to have kids come back and go to school in person. Well, when I was there, it happened that three kids tested positive and they wound up going off virtual. School. Which of course had the usual effect on parents who have to take care of the kids so I mean there's that and then the economy. The economy's slowing. As again as you would see around the country, the coal mines shut or slowed. During the spring, but they're back shopping is down retail sales are down and it's a place where the unemployment rate you know went up to eleven percent. It's now the most recent is around nine percent. So even a place that's used to having a weak economy. In What is clearly recession? President trump is still expected to win the county in this election, but a lot has changed for many of his supporters there're especially during the pandemic. Bob, can you tell us more about what you heard from them and how they're thinking about voting this time around sure I mean they are still overwhelmingly in favor of president trump overwhelmingly but. Then you have to define what is overwhelmingly mean in two thousand sixteen. He got eighty percent of the vote in the general election. So will he get eighty percent of the vote? Will he get seventy percent of the vote will as many people show up to vote for him? These are all questions that are uncertain at this point, the answers to which. Are, uncertain as I say the people there in general are still quite supportive but even his supporters wonder if other supporters are basically suffering from what you might call trump fatigue, the four years of controversy the pandemic which it's Cannon County as much as it hits, you know anywhere else you know all the controversies and so even his supporters wonder whether they'll get. As larger turn out, it doesn't mean necessarily vote for Joe Biden mean that they don't show up to vote another issue is that it's a place with the weak economy as I said and the number and people are leaving people the population there is being greatly reduced over the past twenty thirty years and even from two thousand, sixteen to two, thousand twenty, there are fewer people in the county. So there are fewer potential voters for the president. Did you talk to any voters who did vote for trump in two thousand sixteen and are now considering voting for? Biden. Yes. I spoke particularly to a couple. Francis and Rayburn. Minton who run a clinic in Grundy it's tucked away in a food city supermarket and they as are many people in that area they were Democrats. This is an area that until Brock Obama actually voted democratic in the presidential election like a Lotta places in West Virginia and in South West Virginia, and then they had voted for president trump largely. Because of his promises about the coal economy bring back know the local economy to stronger state and they now are voting against him because they are upset at the way they feel he is mismanaged the response to cove it. I mean they see it up front you know they do testing for covid and the they have arguments with patients, potential patients, potential customers who WANNA test but we're we're a mask and a attributed a lot of the resistance to wear masks to the president's often disdainful attitude toward mass square.

Is Trump Losing the Midwest?

"Welcome to the be I'm Ari Melber and we are tracking some new sides. Trump campaign is worried about losing the Midwest and thus the entire race to Joe Biden trump spending precious time and resources on defense and state carried by wapping ten points. Last Cycle Iowa Biden is closing that gap and putting the state in a dead heat I was one of the thirty nine states Kobe is surging appointed his greeting donald trump's visit many voters their view this campaign homestretch through the prism of covert. And the criticisms not just coming from Joe Biden or the Resistance Iowa leaders, public health experts, independent writers all noting the trump is coming back now for votes after turning his back on the crisis there take the influential Des Moines Register stating that after jeopardizing our live from far. Trump decides to visit Iowa in person. Or take a look at this. You can't pull up trump's I will rally tonight without seeing this massive billboard pointing the way to yes. A super spreader of. Trump is plowing forward on breaking CDC guidelines lying about the risk of Colbert and the timing of vaccine and repeating two thousand sixteen claims in that state and in other key battleground states that from what we're seeing on the ground and our reporting may not play as well. Right now Democrats, say many measurable signs show that some voters are now onto the con- take a local paper in the state of Pennsylvania noting that trump is just recycling is two thousand, sixteen jobs message, which may work less during the current recession while the president blows up these stimulus talks this week. And his key groups like suburban women turn on Donald Trump that's according to internal polling newly obtained by politico or senior citizen's wavering on trump group that he needs for a winning coalition in several of these states, and since we were last on air just last night, roughly three more million ballots are in leading to nearly fifteen million total ballots cast, which again is vital because it may lock in votes at a time when Donald Trump appears down. So. If you follow all this stuff, you could see the facts trump's record are hurting him. But with the second debate canceled this week, not everyone's falling all the details which is important to keep in mind and that's true. We checked even in some key states that the candidates are visiting even for people who do read the paper. Take Florida which so many politicos obsessed over even when the candidates are on the ground I wanNA show, you hear a fairly typical big city paper, the Orlando Sentinel, the twenty, twenty race it's not the very top story or line. It's not top two on the right. You have to squint there and find it. We put it in red for you below the full in the very lower right hand corner, and that's with the nominee Joe Biden on the ground. Elections are one on preference and turnout. Popularity or preference really helps. But turnout commander more. That's how unpopular person like Donald trump managed to eke out a win in the electoral college in the first place even though remember he never pulled very high. He never pulled past fifty percent and he finished with few voters supporting him in our weird. Constitutional System. By right now, thanks from that evidence. We showed you in what we've been showing you throughout the week that they are up. So they're laser on taking that preference and trying to get the turnout with these growing leads states that trump won in two thousand sixteen big leads in some places above the margin of error and the question is, can the Democrats actually turn all those people out? I want to bring in someone who knows all about this polling Guru Cornell Belcher who worked on both Obama campaigns and wanting to taller the national political director for supermajority, which focuses ongoing political opportunities for women good evening to both of you. Cornell when you see the numbers up. What is the vital part for campaigns in October as voting's begun interning turning preference in turn out into victory? I think are a couple of things are really important. The numbers that are structurally different from twice I wanted to make that plex a lot of people still nervous about twenty sixteen. Structurally this is different than twice a couple of ways. One is different than to sixteen. In that in all these polls are driven showing by actually has a majority. And that is critical I. don't care if you're five, six, seven points. If you're below majority crazy things can happen. But in most of these bound states and certainly the national polling, he's now at a majority in Washington Post polling which I which I pay attention to hear because they they have the third party candidate in there as well. He's still at a majority you remember. Hillary was always ahead in the forced to way choice coastal majority but with the third party candidates who. Turned up the instrumental she was never had a majority of that. She got in nationally law with what what we saw with third-party Cornell just to pause on that point you raise because this matters you're pointing out that sometimes the question the voters get on the phone is different than what they're going to see. If they turn out, they get presented with two and it can change the actual science of what we're getting when they're gonNA go in the ballot box and see three or more explain to us exactly what's different now or what you think that there's more optimism for Biden compared to that. There was a protest right and we understood that that that that the third party candidates were repealing. A inaudible segment of the electorate who who, who was my time voted for for Bronco Rock Obama and nowhere is that more crystal clear than the State Wisconsin, what you saw those young people third party forty we also understand that the Russians have had a big play in and try and direct some of those specials and African American voters toward party candidate candidate candidates here. But even with their and candidates right now structurally, Biden has a majority of which is which is good and it's a stable majority. Are This is unusual in that you can't go back in the last two or three decades seeing where a Democrat has held a double digit lead nationally embattled most these battleground states for not one month that two months, three months. But basically, since June so structurally, this is very different and within the numbers is very different because when you look at right now you know among College White Women, the Horse Races Twenty seven, sixty, nine ad from the Washington. Post poll so know. So, you're talking about structurally this lead in and his support is very different than what we saw. Hillary Clinton Sixteen in two thousand sixteen quite frankly I'm gonna Bama and teen got but this is structurally even different than what we saw for Brock Obama. In Twenty, eight, twenty, twelve in two. Thousand eight I'M GONNA bring. You Anita? But. You're saying it diplomatically are you saying you think the number support a bigger margin for buying than what Obama One? Is Is blasphemed don't Tell Brak. Obama but I. Joe By going to beat it by. Wow don't you know it doesn't work when you say don't tell someone, but you're on live TV. That's really you are I mean again, I just want to underscore this. Again, we're following the the numbers and I've tried to show viewers we're GONNA continue report for you. Particularly, the votes cast the voter registration were at fifteen million votes. The election has begun, which is different than a hypothetical poll six months ago so we have an Obama pollster. Saying tonight, he is seeing the elements of the larger victory for Biden and Obama that you own that. Not Me that's really interesting coming from you cornell. Elliott. said it you're not telling you. There's no things what they're. Not. GonNa, let you forget this. I don't see it. But what I do see is absolutely the margins nationally the margins in these battleground states are undeniable but also an organizer. So first and foremost I'm always going to default to this is a turnout game. It is all about the people get showing up. I am absolutely looking at that almost fifteen million votes cast number and have optimism optimism about what we can expect to see as we get closer to the election cycle and I'm also a woman optimistic about women boating and turning out their friends and their. Families to make sure that binding gets over the finish line because what what is interesting here is Bala failures that you mentioned about trump and your opening are like boater boater spill that and voters are living that every single day. So on top of all them enthusiasm for a Biden Harris, they're taking their lived experience in an ongoing pen to make that didn't have to be this way in an economic recession that again didn't have to be this way but are here but we're all here because of trump and his administration's ineptitude.

Why Mitch McConnell is unstoppable

"The reality is in the Senate right now, it takes just simple majority to advance any presidential nominee Paul Kane is the senior congressional correspondent for the post whether it is to some random commission overseeing the Great Lakes or the Supreme Court of the United States of America, and that has left the minority party with very few options. The reality is that there's not a whole they can do. and. What are some of these theories that we have heard of that Democrats could do or that people think the Democrats could do right now oh, there's this thought of if you impeached someone anyone bill bar or in the trump again and sent to that resolution across the capital that it would instantly stop all other action and forced them to hold an impeachment trial. You know I got an email from a reader asking about they could just deny unanimous consent blocking unanimous consent is something that blocks the action from taking place and basically would make the voting process go much more slowly. Yeah. But there are provisions. Already in line for how to deal with those things, you file something called a cloture motion. That's the that's the way you blocked a filibuster defeat filibuster and yes, it'll take three days to overcome that process but think of it this way if there really were away for this minority party to block this Supreme Court nominee then Mitch McConnell would have thought of it in the eight years that he served as minority leader and was considered the obstructionist in chief. He was considered the greatest structure in the history of the Senate blocking Brock Obama at every possible way if there were ways for digital block Supreme Court. Nominations of Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan from the minority position McConnell would have done it but he couldn't do it, and then I've heard these ideas that potentially if Democrats were to win control of the Senate in November, and if there were to be a Democratic president that there's this idea, you could pack the court afterward, you could just change the number of justices that there are on the Supreme Court and increase them. So you could have two more. Democrat appointed justices or you could have four more. Well, that is a the that is something that can legitimately be done in the legislative process. There was no. Foundation in the constitution that set the number of surpreme. Court justices at nine. It started with six justices the chief and five associate justices an grew over the years and you know to be sure you know the considered the greatest Democratic president of all Franklin Delano Roosevelt tried in the nineteen thirties to pack the court and very infamous way and eventually was shot down and the reality is if Democrats were to go through the couple year process of adding justices to spring court that would immediately be met in return with Republicans. Next time they have the power and you know we just would go back and forth by. In twenty years, we might have twenty one justices and also probably need support from actual democratic leadership, and this seems like something that Congressional leadership isn't that interested in something that Joe Biden has said that he straight up doesn't think should happen Yeah Biden had got a little bit cagey the other night when he was asked about it in a local interview I think it was in Wisconsin and he basically said that he didn't want to answer the question because of the answers the question. Then that's GonNa change the. Discussion and what Democrats are trying to do right now is to avoid these. These are processed fights. I know that there is a bigger bigger goal at hand here in terms of overall policy and how that policy is reviewed at the supreme. Court. But most of the public tunes this stuff out because they, they hear things about over Republicans are being hypocrites and well like eighty nine percent or more of the public says, yeah, they're all hypocrites no big deal and they really want to try and focus this fight politically. On, what the impact of trading in Ruth? Bader GINSBURG. The most iconic liberal justice of the last twenty five years for a very staunch conservative jurist like amy, Coney Barrett like that is the biggest ideological jump that the court would have seen since thurgood Marshall was replaced by Clarence Thomas They WanNa make this fight politically not about these seemingly random efforts to put more justices on the Supreme Court and they want this fight to be about the impact on the affordable care act on voting rights on clean air clean.

"Russia. Your comment about the the freshman congress persons comments, specifically touch her comments were disgraceful. This is a person that I don't know. I assume she's new I think she dishonored herself. And I think she dishonored her family using language like that in front of her son. And whoever else was there. I thought that was a great dishonor to her and to her family. I thought it was highly disrespectful to the United States of America. Yes. That's the appropriate answer. That's the appropriate answer. You don't say that about the president of the United States? And I'll say this until the cows come home. Brock Obama is a cool, dude. Like, you're standing from afar. You don't talk to him. You're not talking politics. The guy has learned to walk with a certain swagger when he reads a teleprompter. He's a very good communicator, just by the way, he pauses. With the things he says. Really make you take notice what he's in front of a crowd. I mean, that's learned that he wasn't born didn't grow up speaking like that that was learned, but he's very effective at it. Plus he sings one hell of a good Al green song. That's cool too. So I never had a personal hatred for the guy not even really a personal dislike his policies sucked. He's a racist. He divided us on lines of race. And if you wanna talk about impeachment, I can give you probably four or five different things. He did that were legitimately impeachable. Although I never pushed for impeachment of of Brock Obama. I wanted to be voted out. And it didn't happen. Twenty twelve you know, lame ass Mitt Romney. But when you're a newly elected Representative in the house of representatives. Remember when the one guy from South Carolina yelled you lie when Obama was talking about how will Bombardier wasn't going to give insurance to illegals. That was a lie.

The problem with fake news. Is that it really really works from American public media. This is marketplace tech demystifying the digital economy. I'm Molly would. This year fake news made a huge splash as companies and governments tried to figure out who should be in charge of spotting misinformation and getting rid of it something they're still dealing with. And we'll be well into twenty nineteen MIT researchers the non Rawl has found that the not true stuff what he calls. False news is not only hard to stop. But that it's really effective. A recent study found that false news travels way, more efficiently and much farther than the truth. In an article published this year in the Harvard Business Review Arale says that misinformation can have some very real costs. There's a story from Brock Obama's presidency where a false tweet that indicated that he was injured in an explosion wiped out one hundred thirty billion dollars of equity value in a single day. These types of stories can have consequential impacts on our democracy on businesses on our national security. And so it's a problem we really need to concentrate on. So what can be done one of the things you talk about changing the incentives for companies, either disincentivising them to spread misinformation or incentivizing them to fight it. What are they doing? What could they be doing? Yes. So when you when it comes to changing, the incentives, we know now that a lot of the false news that spreads is not spread for political reasons, but is spread for economic reasons. The social media advertising ecosystem monetize his attention or eyeballs to content and if false news spreads farther faster, deeper and more broadly than the truth than it is incentivizes producers of false news to produce more false news in order to earn more advertising revenue if platforms like Facebook are to be responsible for the spread of known falsities than they could use policies. Technologies algorithms to reduce or dampen the spray. Of this type of news, which may reduce the incentive to create it in the first place. Talk to me about consumer behavior because changing consumer behavior seems like the most uphill battle of all like, well, this alternately fall on companies and or regulators. So it's interesting you talk about consumer behavior because as we were doing this study. There was a lot of congressional testimony talking about the role of bots or software programs and spreading false news. And what we found was that. In fact, bots spread false and true news at approximately the same rate. So Botts could not explain why false news traveled so much farther faster deeper and broadly than the truth over the ten years of data that we studied on Twitter what that means is human decision making is contributing significantly to the spread of false news. So understanding how to think about consumer behavior is a really important part. Of dealing with the false.

Election 2018 Review: What Happened and Why?

Election 2018 Review: What Happened and Why?

"Election two thousand eighteen review the midterms are over in its official. We have a split congress on Tuesday. Democrats retook control of the house of representatives while the Republicans strengthened their lead in the Senate beyond Washington. Democrats won several high profile governors races many in the midwest. But they lost their bid for governor in several other states, including Florida and Georgia at a press conference Wednesday, President Trump minimized Republican losses saying the GOP faced opposition from well-funded candidates. Adding that those who want did so because they embraced his agenda candidates who embraced our message of low taxes, low regulations, low crime, strong, borders and great judges excelled last night. The president also expressed hope for bipartisanship between the two parties. Hopefully, we can. All work together next year to continue delivering for the American people, including on economic growth infrastructure trade lowering the cost of prescription drugs. These are some of the things that the Democrats do want to work on. And I really believe we'll be able to do that. Let's talk about why the elections turned out the way they did what a divided congress means. And the impact that that'll have on President Trump and his agenda. Joining us from Washington is Wall Street Journal, executive Washington editor Gerald cyb, Jerry, first of all didn't this election show that the country remains as divided as ever, you know, young people suburbanites women, they went for Democrats while rural voters white men went for Trump in the GOP. Yeah, I think that is the bottom line here. It is an electric that looked in many ways awful lot like the one in two thousand sixteen that elected Donald Trump where Hillary Clinton won the popular vote and Donald Trump want the electoral college, that's kind of what we had here. You had a blue coalition in the suburbs in among women and young people who wanna. A lot of marginal house seats, and that's what gave Democrats control of the house, and you had a Trump coalition that seems more solid than ever in rural areas small towns and some of the excerpts around the big cities that held in place in. That's why the Republicans managed to win Senate seats in places like Texas, and Indiana, and Tennessee and the net result is you said is a split verdict. But that's what the country is it split right now between those two visions of politics. The kind of the Blue Wave a coalition and the red Trump base coalition. That's what we'll be dealing with in Washington for the next two years as a result. But on the other hand, Jerry this election didn't seem to produce the Bluewave that a lot of people said might carry the Democrats to victory in both chambers. No, that's true. And the reason that didn't happen was that some of the closest most important at least most politically charged races. Didn't go the Democrats way. And that means Beto Arocca democratic congressman did. Not defeat incumbent Ted Cruz in the Texas Senate race that would have been a shocker Democrats almost. But then in the end didn't win a big Senate seat in Florida and the governor's race in Florida, and they almost had kind of historic candidate Stacey Abrams African American woman a win the governor's race in Georgia. But she apparently has not won that race. And so all of those races would have turned a good night for Democrats into a great night for Democrats, but they came up just short on all of those. And that's the frustration for Democrats right now, they had a good night. But not a great night. And it also means on the other hand for President Trump. He just needed to avoid complete disaster in this election, and that sort of what happened he lost control of the house to the Democrats. Everybody expected that didn't lose it by the same margin that some past presidents have lost seats. Brock Obama in twenty ten lost a lot more house seats for his party and his first midterm after election than Donald Trump will. So the Republicans can say, well, we skirted disaster you meant. And some of the key races. Jerry talk about some of the other ones that stood out to you. You know, there were some interesting early ones on the house side that led Democrats to think that well, we're on our way to that giant Blue Wave.

Michael Cohen claims Trump made repeated racist references

"To vote for me. Michael Cohen also recounted don't Trump saying racist things about black contestants on his TV show. Donald trump. The politician is the champion of American racists, America's most famous public racists. And putting David Duke have always been full-fledged. Trump supporters David Duke knows a racist when he sees one. And so the democratic campaigns around the country this year against Trump is also campaigns against racism. Here's what President Obama had to say in Georgia tonight campaigning for Stacey Abrams to become not just the first African American woman governor in the Georgia, but the first African moon woman, governor of any state in the United States. Mccalls in weeks of this election. We have seen repeated. Constant incessant. Now. On stuck attempts to divide us. That is designed to make us angry. And make us fearful. With images and rhetoric that are designed to exploit. History of racial and ethnic and religious division. To try to pit us against one. Another. To make us believe that things will be better. If it just weren't for those who don't look like us, the good news. In four days. Georgia can reject. We can come together. Our country's cool. That's what Stacee stands for. You're just back from Georgia and joy on the day that we discover to no one surprise that. Donald Trump says racist things in private Michael Cohen. There's Barack Obama out there on the campaign trail trying to address this trying to heal in whatever way he can the racial division. That's out there. Again, it is it is this to there. They are presidents of two different countries. And you saw it really today when John Lewis spoken in Macon, Georgia four Stacey Abrams and talking about what he went through just to have the right to vote. Look Stacey Abrams. Lawrence tells a story about when she was valedictorian of her high school class going to the governor's mansion and being turned away by the guard who was white who said you don't belong here. And that was her sort of only memory really going to the governor's mansion was having her parents were both Methodist ministers have to dress down this white guard who was refusing to let a young Stacey Abrams into the governor's mansion. So I mean sort of the. Poetic irony that, she's now running to be the governor of the state is sort of sort of perfect, and she's actually really from Mississippi which has its own fraught history. I think we tend to try to confine that history of racism to the berry distant past. It isn't distant at all. And I think what we're seeing is an election, which Donald Trump is literally closing making the closing argument to white America. And it is a test for white America. He's saying Brent, racial panic. Those people are coming to take over your country. Those people are invading Brown. People are invading Brown. People don't belong here. This is our country, and you d to vote for Republicans to keep them out and Brock Obama, saying, no, no, no this is shared country. This is a country where we all can have a piece of it where we all share in its benefits, but we all have to take responsibility for its history. Together. These are such stark differ starkly different visions.

Is Roe v. Wade Is Hanging by a Thread?

"To transform the rule of law and our country during the campaign trump promised to only pick a prolife judges i am putting prolife justices on the court itchy abortion activists are calling it a pivotal moment while abortion rights defenders are saying they are in dire immediate danger the senate should reject on a bipartisan basis any justice who would overturn roe v wade or undermine key healthcare protections democrats insist there should be no confirmation vote at all until after the midterm elections they point to the fact that republicans blocked brock obama's last pick for ten months before the two thousand sixteen presidential election but republican leader mitch mcconnell says there must be no delay republicans are dealing with a razor thin one vote majority in the senate that means they can afford to lose only one that's why you can expect republicans to put intense pressure on three democrats three democrats who voted for neal gorsuch his choice last time around and who are now this year up for reelection it states that trump won big george stephanopoulos and cecilia vega spoke with abc's chief legal analyst dan abrahams san abc supreme court contributor kate shaw looking to answer the question so many are asking after justice kennedy's resignation why now robie wade that's where all the early energy is going to be that's right but let's be clear there's no question that roe v wade could be in jeopardy but that doesn't mean it's going to get overturned everyone's talking about overturned overturned as a practical matter justices liked to show deference to previous opinions meeting it's unusual to say we're simply going to overturn a decision because we now disagree with if it happens on occasion but it's very rare more likely what you see is an opinion effectively get gutted meaning states that want to restrict abortion will increasingly make laws that are more restrictive and more restrictive and then have those laws challenged in the hope that those laws are able to move forward and ineffective would mean that it becomes nearly impossible for women in a number of states to get and you can be sure that whoever president trump nominates is going to do his or her best not to show their hand on roe wade during the confirmation you don't want to admit you know what your position is on any case in the confirmation process the rule is when you're asked about a particular case you say this could come in front of me and as a result i'm night i'd have to see what the facts of the case were but you've got to believe that the president is going to know a lot about any candidate that he considers justice kennedy didn't make from the bench where you surprise you were there we all knew it was a possibility but i don't think anyone in that building really believed he was going to do impart because you know he seemed to send a message with his travel ban separate writing that he had some concerns about some of president trump's conduct and rhetoric he wrote separately to sort of say you need to acting ways that respect constitutional values like equality but in the end you know i think he did want to be replaced by republican president and this was the surest way to see that.

"Now charged with this massive leaked to wikileaks joshua schultz is just twenty nine right but he's been charged in this new grand jury indictment and i guess he just had a treasure trove of us government stuff that he turned over to wikileaks that was pretty damaging kate i mean this is one of the major leaks of our time and he was an engineer and he has this this leak the grand jury of courses in dieting and it's to wikileaks and you know what amazes me most about this how on earth are you know these contractors or these employees whether it's the cia nsa private contractor like eric snowden how can they get this passed amount of information out to people and this was now they found out there was a child porn case it was revealed in court that shows this this man was a target of the investigation into wikileaks and then of course the release of the collection was known as bald number seven so it must be a treasure trove of information that has now gotten out there wait and see what happens with that but man that's boyd's gets crazy and that changed of course some of the policies of how they were doubling up on who they're hiring these contractors all that kind of stuff i mean kind of rippling all the way through the and some of the people that they contract out with some of the big companies right right in this is not the only one last june they had an actual security agency contractor reality winner was arrested on charges of leaking online publications in march they had one in minneapolis terry albery was charged with the leak to the interceptor the fbi's procedures i mean and then james wolfensohn so this is the fourth in a row i can't imagine how they're going to continue to let this go on i mean there are electric ways to you know sort of prevent this type of thing from happening yeah absolutely another big story today and this is one i say that america tonight people are talking about this former first lady laura bush she could self she spoke out on sunday night about separating families on the border it was in the washington post has pumped out all over the place she said it was cruel and immoral she said she lives in a border state she appreciates the need to enforce them protect the boundaries but this is hero tolerance policies just cruel it's immoral it's awful you know in two thousand fifteen george bush started this what they call it like a streamlining process brock obama did it and that was to allow for actual prosecution of people so it allowed the government to say you're coming in we can't prosecute you and at least that was a maybe a way to keep less people here or to deal with people especially if they had a criminal background but at that point in time they didn't split families now there's two things that why this is going on two different directions one is that president trump and this is a i think awkward to say the least said well this is a wedge to be using the democrats to get immigration reform if he does this with the families but the second reason and and nobody really is talking about this case too much the second reason is to send the message to people out in mexico that are trying to come across if you come here we're going to separate you from your family's and then in the latino community mexican community families are a big deal and so some people may be maybe dissuaded from coming here if they hear that now again is this is way to say that this is our policy but that's another reason they're doing it yeah speaking of that the house plans to vote on immigration bills this week tell us about it well one of them even on life support it's it's going right straight to the graveyard that's the conservative version that one's done the second one is a compromise the president likes it and right now most people on the democratic side don't like it and and really conservative do not like it so i think that one's on life support i can't imagine we're anything's going to come out of there and of course this is.
