Per Grankvist is building a Swedish media empire around explainer journalism
"Hair. Thanks for joining us and ohio. So i think what initially intrigued me enough to have you on. The show is that you said that the that you're basically running the nordic version of vox dot com for the uninitiated. Vox is a very public policy focused website in the us. Before we get into that. I wanted to start with talking about how you got into the news business in the first place like i think you started out as just like an independent blogger blogging during your free time right. That's right. I was blogging on the topic of sustainability and to understand and explain how companies could record sustainability and make money at same time and sustainability. Just for it's like a make sure of environmental issues how how companies can reduce their impact on the environment things like that right yup unwieldy social aspect of it so the supply chain and how you treat your people in your employees on the diversity questions. It's the full bag. And i was seeing. That company was starting duties and from a business perspective which was quite new in sweden. So i a cover that. And after a few years i got picked up a donald radar on the swedish businessweek and so they acquired the blog and asked me to head up the stain ability section. That was both online and events and in the paper unsold stock a couple of years. And what were you doing is like a day job while you were an independent blogger like was were you working in sustainability or was just the. Was this just an interest that you add. Start off as an interest. I was working as the head of sales and marketing. At wayne's coffee which is basically the is starbucks equipment in the and yeah. That was my day job. And i started the blog. Ganden started to do some. Freelance works talking about sustainability. the all new zealand Leaning into this trying to explain things so how did you. How did you find that audience for your blog. You know before you had any kind of institutional support. The audience found me. I think and so a lot of people start to reach out and asked if i wanted to come see them and i reached out the few companies. Say hey i need to understand a bit. More on those countries where i ki- and companies of that sort and they found me wealth read on the topic and we had way compensation dr turned into articles and sometimes speaking gig sensible and so you said swedish businessweek acquired you. Is that the swedish version of the american magazine businessweek. No it's it's it's a. It's a similar magazine. Exactly called business. That comes a fatter But it's basically the same but it's it's not affiliated and did they. Have you just come on and start blogging on their website. They did that and also they made me an editor and publisher. So i got to head up a new division focusing on covering these issues the emergent climate issues marching supply chain issues and so on. We did that. The nominee channel way which was kind of new and pioneering in duffield and. It sounds like swedish takes the sustainability stuff more seriously than they do in the us. Yes we do but also a bit full of ourselves so we come from a more sort of systemic point of view. Here is some research. And i've sunday's let's do this together. It's not it's not business oriented at all but more more from moral perspective or moral highground. what you could say about bitta. The greta The wasn't out approach here where we look at. How can we make business. How can we make money of this. As that was something i brought to the table and so working for that magazine. Did it raise your national profile. Like obviously sweden is a relatively small country. Compared to the us you became well relatively well known as a intellectual. Yeah you can say that. I mean i'm curious. Persons are trying to understand things and someone said Gold made the malcolm glad well of sweden of sorts. Because i was at a constantly getting interested in all kinds of new stuff. Oh here's something. Old filter bubbles. Oh here's something social media how that works on. So i tried to explain it soon as i learned something and that gave me a reputation Landed me a new job as the on the opinion pages of one of the big newspapers in sweden is a thug. Biggest national newspaper here by god gate Swedish national brokaw. Coster sat equivalent of pbs in us. Yeah so you became so not just well known in printed pap- papers but was it your voice or were you also appearing on tv i was also paying k the i do have much more of us that are radio. Appearance was forced on tv. So every friday. I come along to get with two other people on the panel discussed today. made make sense of the dole. I was basically my job. So you're a recognizable like you're walking on the street people would recognize who you're
The DNC and RNC are going virtual. What can we expect?
"So actually the coronavirus pandemic everything has gone virtual. We covered all digital conferences like Tho- launches, apples, WDC. In DNC are completely different animals Taco bell expecting to see well I. Think it's GonNa be a very, highly produced. Event just like it normally is but it's GonNa be really different because you know when they. When they usually do this, you've got like thousands of people in a huge arena you know you have people talking. And they're they're mostly talking to the to the people, the viewers and the audience. Sitting at home on their couches. Anyway. But you have that vibe you have that you know the people cheering it's it's like being in a live sporting event in a sense you know so like that's going to be lost a bit. Yeah. We've we've had instances with like the the NBA right they put up digital boards with with people that are virtually in I've watched the most games. It's definitely not. It doesn't really replicate the feeling of being at a game where the ambiance there I imagine a lot of the energy that would have been in those conferences have people been there. Is really kind of sucked away, right? Yeah and you know and that's really political conventions are basically like cheerleading events right? You know it's like the party faithful as there you've got these delegates from all around the country they're like really Gung Ho for their party and their candidate and they wanna like. You know just cheer their heads off and it's you know. So you know I think that energy is going to be a bit different but I'm also curious to see like what creative things they come up with right like like you mentioned the NBA thing like like are they going to do something like that? You know I mean? It'll be interesting to see how they approach it. Yeah. Have you got any kind of indication on on what they might do to create that excitement that is would be missing from having all those folks there. Yeah. So the the DNC they they have been, they've definitely said that they are going to try to involve people like regular everyday people. So I'm wondering if it is going to be something NBA like right where they have screens. Right there. But we'll definitely be having some like. Some people getting beamed in from all across the US whether it's you know. Politicians or or just SORTA your regular everyday folks who are like either live on video and a lot of like these pre produced videos people have been they've had this campaign where people are able to. Send in their videos like with prompts like I know Joe and talk about like why they're excited about Joe Biden and that kind of thing. So they're going to have that SORTA interspersed throughout the program. So it'll be interesting to see like how it all Kinda comes together. To DNC specifically, what what is that? GonNa look like will anyone actually be in Milwaukee? So there will probably be like a skeleton kind of crew in Milwaukee like I've heard that that Tom Perez, who's the chairman of the DNC was still planning to go to Milwaukee to gavel in the convention officially. But the big speakers you know like Joe Biden, who's the presumptive nominee he is not going to be there he's going to be somewhere in Delaware. Now, they've said he's not probably going to do it from his basement. So some place else in Delaware. In the Wilmington area where he lives. So that'll be interesting. I wonder how they they might dress up whatever venue he's in. You know like he was speaking with. Kamala Harris. You know the other day they've had actually a couple of speaking engagements and they've got the flags everywhere but like the backdrop didn't really look all that interesting to me. So it'll it'll I wonder how they're going to you know jazz it up so that it looks cool. How's the Brokaw can work? Yeah. So the roll call and by the way like I got to go to the convention in two, Thousand Sixteen, the roll call is pretty cool. Just in general when you're there in the room, there's like this vibe all the people stand up and they say, you know I'm from South Carolina and they were the whatever state and we pledge our ex delegates to. And so it's like an exciting moment. So it's going to be totally different this time 'cause they're all not going to be in the room but I you know they've said they're. GonNa. Kind of pop around all all the states and so you're probably going to have people from those states. Doing their call and I'm sure they're gonNA do something jazzy about like. You know I'm from Delaware. So it's like Delaware the first state in the nation. Allah. Probably say something like that I don't know. So it'll. We'll see. We'll see what about the NC I know there was a lot of back and forth about where was gonna be in whether it was go digital What is that GonNa was so that you know I think that's still to be determined right? Like they're still they haven't put out a whole lot of information about like what it's GonNa look like exactly. So I mean I want I wonder if some of this might change in the next week but. So far they are. Going to have a very reduced crowd in Charlotte. President trump will not be there to accept the nomination. In they're gonNa have like something like you know three hundred or so delegates there. So you know I don't know I don't know if they're going to try to do some things kind of like in in the arena although I think that would look pretty. bleak. If it's people, you know space really far apart. So I think that's still Kinda to be determined with what they're going to be doing it wear for folks who are watching these where can you check out the streams? So the DNC they've announced a whole bunch of places like you're gonna be able to stream, it live on youtube and facebook and twitter and And then the convention is officially you know airing from nine to eleven every night and all the broadcast channels will have it for the last hour. And and then they're gonNA have it on like TV and Roku and so they were going to be a lot of opportunities for people to stream it or. Even, to SORTA catch it on the networks got looking at some of the other challenges I mean we talked a little bit about the lack of energy. But what are the potential pitfalls who going virtual? Yeah. Well I mean we've all been watching. You know some of these cable news shows lately right like in sometimes you get like the guests who are like pixellated or their screen freezes. You know so I think that's going to be a challenge. You know you don't want somebody to be mid-sentence and all of a sudden they're face completely frees up. So that'll be a challenge. Yasser. Don't want it to look like a really boring call. With. With everybody with the bookcase in the background. So I think they'll have to figure out ways to to make it look interesting and you know. And not have any sort of technical glitches.

Nancy Reagan says, Ronnie, there's a question I can't answer. Pulls him away back to their table. So that's one of our favorite stories that we became very, very close to Nancy, before the to river thing. So we've just had this. Right place, right time, magic, Hawaii, and. Huge part of it for me is that. Veritas there you know kind of even. Keel. Winning for everybody so We we're going. For Two kids from eighteen high school worked out pretty well when you were doing those early jobs. You mentioned like disc jockeying and doing weekend news. What was it that you were doing well Enough to keep advancing along like when you look back now. You know like what were the characteristics or traits was at just work? Is there sort of a talent and is there a native talent? I don't know delivering I think people determined that I was interested in what I was doing that I was serious about journalism. And you know and I had a certain cosmetics thing where I could get on television. I was from the time I could remember anybody remember me I was at ease talking doing things. So it's not a bad performer, but I was really interested. In the substance. So I went from Sioux city to Omaha for two. Two years in Omaha going all kinds of things here morning noon and night and Bang I get picked up by the biggest station in the South Atlanta Georgia. Of the Civil Rights Movement next thing I know I'm covering Dr King in everybody down there and feeding the stuff NBC. Eight months after I'm Atlanta NBC comes, we want you to come to California to go to work for us so it was Bang Bang Bang. I get to California in nineteen, sixty, six percent I do is start covering Ronald Reagan who everybody said that he can't win and I got the whole team I was on the air on election night do all this stuff. And then California in those as especially and I think it's still true. They don't ask about your pedigree can you do the job or not? We had a great live other the closest friends that we have to this day or people our age who came there at the same time. Warren Buffett's irreplaceable warrior on the greatest lawyers in America came from a small town. Iowa at the same time we were there are other couples like that. California's on the rise. Everything was affordable. We bought a wonderful House valley up in the hills forty, two, thousand, five, hundred dollars. You know we do three couples would go out for dinner would be one, hundred would not be one hundred bucks, three couples in. Some of the best restaurants town? And then I, was doing a lot of work for NBC. And then you know we had a really good life there emerged had a good life. She was a linguist. and. Then in VC Cameron said. Time, move, we gotta come back East. Chancellor. Why do I wonder that? So you so I went back I became the White House correspondent. And the timing again was brokaw's favor I caught. Watergate. Boom Yeah. Is it Also read. That it's rumored I. Don't know if you've ever acknowledged it or maybe it came from you that you were offered but turned down an opportunity be Nixon's press secretary. It was true her career to win no way different direction. There was no way I was going to do so you didn't even entertain the idea. Entertainment I almost threw up when they made the offer. Yeah. There's no one more reviled than the press secretary during crisis and. What I wanted do I want to be journalists I didn't want to be on the other side I want to do what I was doing and I ended up. Having a good Bob. Haldeman who made the opera was persistent Finally. He went to jail Watergate's over and word I'm in New York, doing a kind of retrospective on Watergate. I guess it's Big Bear Hug from behind me I turn around and it's Bob Haldeman. You say. Honey Times. I've watched you gotta I could've sent him to jail. So you remained friendly. With Ronald Reagan. Yeah. Like you. You speak well of him now mostly Nancy but also Reagan says I. Think he was up to the job when he got the job I was. I was worried about I thought he was successful in California because he had a strong state legislation, you'll learn how to work with them. And then I learned as president. Because we came very, very close to Jim Baker is chief of staff. Who said he knew what he knew, and that's where he spent his time and what he didn't know he didn't WanNa go there. He didn't want to fake it. So he said, we'd have these staff meetings at seven o'clock in the morning Baker would run them and the prison would show up at eight. And Baker would say Mr President this is what we think you ought to do today. And the area that we ought to concentrate and he'd say, Okay Jim but I don't like that part and he said what he didn't like something. He really had strong reason for not liking it. He always knew who he was. So I came to admire him. A lot of philosophical thing I think he was still. In the thirties it came to race, for example, he didn't quite understand how that was going but I thought he was very important standing up to the Russians and making a standard about the Berlin Wall. And he made the country optimistic. You know that they came to believe that they could do what they needed to do i WanNa do it. He had that kind of cheerfulness about him. And he didn't think rolled off back. You know. Talk. Sam Donaldson I've talked about this a lot. Sam Game, we have the same feelings who are the two that were invited. To Nancy's. To Nancy's furor and I spoke and Sam was there as well. The only two correspondence because we don't wasn't in a way that we try to see what he was up to. We had an appreciation where he got right and also what he got wrong we both chain. And he could handle it. You want to save.

And finally there's going to be a a plaque with Richard's name and what did he say. Oh well that's a good thing should set that up or you should. Why should I work really really? Yeah that's it no Richard Jewel. That's the name of the movie. Clint Eastwood directed at but a true story. Can you tell us a little about Richard J. Just absolutely Richard had been a cop for a few years and then resigned or was fired depending on how you look at it. And then he we went to become a guard at at A college nearby and he got leftover the the thing with Richard that I found so tragic about this whole story story is that he was this hyper vigilant person. Ever since he was a kid at nine of the police the police even as a kid eight in church he wanted to help people And even in Turkey would run around and make sure everybody had a program and then later on when he was a cop he carried like one one hundred thirty pound you know battering Ram but he also had beanie babies for the kids who he might find who had been in accidents so he could give him he was is just this generous simple humble kind man who wanted to help everybody and it was that vigilance that Helped him in his job. He was hired to be a security guy for the Olympics. They were calling everybody in and he was at the sound and light tower and and he'd gone off to the restroom and he came back and there was a bench there and he noticed right away there was what they call an Alice. Pack this big military pack the officious very suspicious and so he told the sit idle like that and they say oh. Come on Richard he said no no I have a bad feeling and they so they brought in the bomb guys and he described it that the the guy went underneath and looked at it and then he just froze and he just back very slowly out and he told his buddy to turn turn a cell phone off and they tried to get everybody back as many people back but through a series of mishaps and nine one one calls and not being able to get in touch touch with people Eric Rudolph who actually planted the bomb and was not caught until like six years later Had this phone message You know there's going to be a bomb in Centennial Park in thirty minutes and thanks to Richard got all that is out of the tower. He was running up and down with doing everything everything a hand and suddenly he became this hero in and then for three days three days and his mother was all got that three day. Yeah my mom his his mom he's on TV. He's bets right he's on. TV is the hero of the day if CNN wanted to talk to him and what turned out was there was a leak from the FBI to Cathy scruggs at the Atlanta Journal Constitution and they decided to break the story and overnight they everybody turned against him and said he was the he was the guy he exempts Mama Except Momma. She was there for him she was they were very very close. She had two miscarriages ages and Richard was her only child and Both his real dad and his step step dad banished from their lives for various. The reasons and So he was her child her boy you know and she knows she knows how he can be be overzealous knows the things that he shouldn't be doing. You trust the police so much too much that it cost him by they use. This is what was so cruel colon. I remember when I started out working with Clint. We were all there to meet with him and I said why do you want to do this movie. And he said because I think it's an American tragedy and he said this is a story that people need to see Jon Hamm was down in Atlanta and people said well what are you doing down here. And he said Oh it's about the bombing and Oh yeah that guy. Richard Jewell who was the bomber summer. Because there's some suspicion and for eight days without any evidence People camped out you know media the FBI suspected in even when they brought him in for his first interview they already had a cell for him. Yeah we like him for this. That's what they always say. Yeah because the public. Everybody's demanding to know who did this. There's that desire. Why are to get somebody up there and say he did it well? There were millions and millions of dollars resting on this because of the Olympics and they had to get it sorted say it's nineteen ninety-six on this is happening so we weren't even in the big cellphone period of the everything was just taking off and don't forget we'd had waco the Federal Building we had Ruby Ridge. We had ninety three Truck Bombing World Trade Center so it was the beginning of the new normal ordinarily of this terrorism. And and it's that going. That's that seesaw. From we love you to stay away from us. I think that the real tragedy and I'm sure that this is what bobby default is that the very quality that enabled him to find that bomb his vigilance. They turn that into a liability And they beat him up with it that to me I think is just the tragedy of all. We'll one amazing scene that you have among renting in this is when bobby went on national. TV making a plea to President Clinton at the time yes to see what's happening and do something for some. Yes so let's look a little bit attack okay. My son is innocent. Richard is not the Olympic the big park bomber. He saved people's lives. Please hear me Mr President and help me. My son is a hero. If they do not intend to charge my son. You please tell us. Please tell the world Mr President. Please clear heartbreaking. Breaking it is is really is. I don't know how many times you had to do that. Well actually we got it in the first take. That's so clint into eastwood is fresh and real. Whenever I've been on a set of this it's always let's move on now but you know people say that the do said I J do when you're always think it's going to be quick but it's not that he takes his time and he leaves it open and it so efficient that he doesn't need need to do more than a couple of takes? Is this your first time with Clint Eastwood. Absolutely absolutely what was that like was a nervous wreck I was a nervous wreck. Check it I I and I think we all were because we all wanted to just I mean we all WanNa do our best all the time. But when you're with someone like client or Mike Nichols just you really and I think we also felt a real responsibility to bobby she survived. Of course she's still alive. And and Richard passed away ten years later he was thirty three when this happened and He got some money CNN NBC you know. They sued them and but the Atlanta Journal Constitution never accepted responsibility for it and the real. FBI Guy who's played by. I Jon Hamm went to his grave saying this guy did it. We see that teen in the movie where he says I still think yeah even when somebody else has confessed knowing it. That's the kind of thing. Well it's a movie that is pretty hard basically on the media and on the feds. It's really saying that in a world where we're supposed to trust certain things we've lost it you know that was nineteen ninety. Six things are worse now. Well and I think it's important to realize is that they just got it wrong and they were in such a rush to try and say the Olympics. That had really. This was only the second day I think it'd be Olympics and and So that was really driving it. And I don't WanNa paint it with two broader brush because look more than ever we need the truth from the press more than ever we I need the truth from the FBI. You know the government we depend on those institutions so that was very specific to this case and I hope people people don't feel that we're just trying to malign those institutions. What does Clinton do when after take? He's happy with it. Well this is what I love of about him and and I didn't realize this is that he just lets the camera. Keep going and we just keep going The scene may be done. I mean our lines. May It'd be done. But we just keep improvising and just continuing to live in that situation and he gets a lot of great stuff that he can use and it's also an opportunity for us to have more time together to experience the chargers together especially nowadays when you don't have rehearsal time you're you'd have your as my friend. Jessica Tandy God rest or used to say your kitchen work nowadays. You have to do your kitchen or in your kitchen you know at at home alone so it's great to have that it's been working. Well when he was when Clinton was here last he was saying that he hates movies. Where the director will say? Hey you know because he said I'm really quiet about it. I just go go when you're ready when you're ready. Just do something I also heard about. I don't know if this is is apocryphal. Or not was when he was doing Spaghetti Westerns and they would scream action the worst would at all also in TV. You know it's just also crazy. The and I think that's when he he developed his style he thought you know. Wait a minute. Everybody's just rushing in and getting it wrong and rushing and getting it wrong again and he just wanted to keep it real simple simple. He says when you're ready people going like this and I remember the first time adequate seen merge running downstairs in Iran into the sound guy who are really liked and I was was trying to speak French Dami said and I thought I thought the scene was over. You know and then that's when I realized it's not over till it's over it until he says it's yeah that's got it he also has. Can I just say he has an amazing cameramen Stephen Campanella he's he's been with them for twenty five years like many of the people on the crew. It's like a family and he just knows how to tell that story with the camera and one of my favorite shots and Clint's to win when the FBI are there. And you see Richard putting his blue gloves on and we've been telling him and telling them not to help the police and then it pans over to salmon. I just standing there looking at him. Like he's never gonNA stop. You know you just wants to throttling. But whatever he's doing he's doing great eighty nine now. Yeah he's still sexiest. Hell you go see. And you've turned that he is. He is sexy telling you. Imagine what it'd be like when he's ninety at like good wine. Everything is perfect to do. Well you you've worked with so many people you know Mike Nichols and primary primary colors. He's somebody I missed tremendously. He's not only a great director but he's just one of the smartest most fun people people that ever lived on this earth. Yeah I agree I remember. I was at an awards thing I think it was the EMMYS and and I lost you know and like about half an hour later. I get this text for Mike. Saying you're among one of my favorite actors I've ever worked with and I thought well that's it dude. I know it's like how lovely of him to do that. In that moment it is but he was right well he was well. It was one of the high points of my life to work with him. I and with that
"brokaw" Discussed on Article II: Inside Impeachment
"A taped Nixon's still have a chance. No there were too many other episodes where he plainly has a deep involvement by then John Dean was talking thing you have to remember is that he kept saying executive executive privilege. The law has long recognized that there are kinds of conversations that are entitled to be kept confidential even at the cost of doing without critical evidence the legal proceeding. This rule applies for example to conversations between the lawyer and a client between a priest as the penitente and between a husband and wife in each case it is thought so important that the parties be able to talk freely to each other deck for hundreds of years the law has said these conversations are privileged and that their disclosure cannot be compelled in a clerk. Mark I had a really terrific researcher working with me and I said we have to find out whether executive privilege has application during an impeachment proceeding. So she he went and talked to a number of experts in the field including conservative legal professors at Yale and they said doesn't have application if it's impeachment proceeding if it's an impeachment proceeding then presidential protection is gone. People have a right to know what is happening here that came in an the exchange. I had with the president of the news conference he actually had was in the Houston big broadcasters convention and I had worked hard on this question just as president president Tom Brokaw. NBC News following my colleague. Mr Rather question you have referred here again tonight as you have in the past about what you call the precedence of past presidents and withholding whitehouse the house material from the House Judiciary Committee so Mr President. My question is this. Aren't your statements to that matter historically inaccurate or at least misleading the national about it and he said I know you'd leading something effective. He's got the right thing. But I believe that executive privilege will prevail. And I'm not going to to give up to any demand that I believe would weaken the presidency of the United States. I will not participate in the destruction of the office of the president of the United States. While I'm in this office and that's what the courtroom court ruled that it did not prevail. And we we had a right to see the tapes. You do at that point it was over although we later learned from Woodward and Bernstein there was a big debate in the family and also in the White House about whether he should try to go to the public. We go to the high risk and say I have a right here to protect executive privilege in the White House but it was over. Can you remember the moment when you found out he was resigning I had been working with. A couple of Republicans on the hill tried to keep pace with what was going on and one of them call me and he said Mistpro. You've been very patient with me. You should know the Barry Goldwater and congressman roads from Oklahoma on their way to the White House. Sell the prison. The time is up and this is how crazy it was so I had this huge story very important Republican I call NBC nightly news. Desk said I said I got it and they said you need a second source. Say you nuts. This is the number two guy and the Senate Republican leadership they said you need a second source. I was furious I hung up the phone fodder something Barry Goldwater. Junior was a congressman from California that I knew and I picked up the phone and call them right. Said Barry how you doing he said Great. I suppose something me about your father coming to the White House and a half boy. Isn't that something. Thank you very much. I'm going to own Gold White House. NBC and I got a second source. That's Barry Goldwater Junior. What was that day like? This is the only time in American history that this has happened to president resigning and leaving office. What was that day like? In Washington. There was a relief on the part of people who've worked for Nixon Who suspected that he was guilty? That was finally coming to a conclusion. The Anti Nixon crowd especially who'd drawn from the Antiwar Movement came pouring at a Washington Washington and went to Lafayette Square and regathered there and they were not hostile. They're not big ugly signs of any kind people understood the gravity of what we're going through. The president of the United States is resigning for the first time. Where do we go from here? The process worked. The rule of law has prevailed and I was very impressed by that. I was out that night and this is the nights that Nixon made his farewell speech. Good evening this is the thirty-seven time. I have spoken to you from this office. I shall resign the presidency effective at noon tomorrow. Vice President didn't for will be sworn in as president at that are in this office when it was over. I was quite critical of the tone tone of his speech and the content of it because he never really owned up he really never said I was wrong. I betray you. I misled the country. And I will carry that to migrate or something to that effect throughout the long and difficult period of Watergate. I felt it was my duty to persevere make every possible effort to complete the term of office to what you elected me. What he said was I was trying to do the right thing by any war a a lot of other stuff but he never stepped up to it and leaving. I do so with this prayer. May God's grace be with you and all the days ahead the next morning. He was going to appear on the east from the White House. And I wanted to be in that room president. Tom Brokaw has that story as president. Richard Nixon has drawn crowds to the vast ellipse south of the White House before. But those were triumphs. This was not and it was was a melancholy gathering and eastern of the White House. Mr and Mrs Nixon and their daughters made their final appearance as the first family in the White House East Ooh President Chemotherapy remodeling speech. Mother being saint which in fact she was now however we look to the future. Sure we've done some things wrong in this administration and the top man always takes the responsibility and I've never ducked doc ID and then he talked as he often did about money. I only wish that I were a wealthy deman- he was consumed by money. And he said I'm not a wealthy man but if I had a lot of wealth I would make sure that all of you would share in it and it was quite open. And it's so typical of him at that point present time I've got to find a way to pay taxes. And then it was over and then he came out and he walked to the helicopter. Air Force wanted to fly back to California and then the transition took human woman forum as the fords and the Knicks. Walk out of the White House together. General Alexander Haig Mr Nick. Chico south with a final salute of encouragement to as commander undoing chief got on that famous V for victory sign and then got into the helicopter the final helicopter flight as president away from the White House and flew to California when he landed in California. Richard Nixon was a private citizen but he drew thousands of cheering supporters to L. Tall Marine airbase from there. He went to San Clemente near where he grew up and whereas boy he has written he listened to train whistles in the night and dream too far off places Tom Brokaw. NBC News Washington. When Gerald Ford Becomes President I always find it interesting to look at the polling the Gallup polling from his presidency the first month he's President August or early September seventy four sky-high? Hi popularity people seem to really like him and then he makes that decision to pardon. Richard Nixon deeply unpopular. At the time. How does that pardon look in history to you now? I think it was the right call. I didn't at the time but it would have been a torture for the country and for the system to have gone through a hearing at a trial while Richard Nixon. Finally I feel that Richard Nixon and his loved ones have suffered enough and will continue to suffer. No matter what I do. Nixon was not going to recover from his disgrace and there was no penalty that would exceed the fact that he was forced out of the office. First and then four hundred nine to become president and one.

Cruise ship reaches Norway port after near disaster, dramatic rescues
"Says is the horror story of a holiday gone wrong that you know, we I mean, I'm not a cruise person. But this is telling us about in cruise in the north of Norway. There were four hundred seventy nine passengers were winched to safety from the crease ship the Viking sky. There's still nine hundred passengers still aboard when it was towed into port and we've seen some horrific. Pictures of the ship was rolling across the floor of the seating collapsed. People having to put their life vets vests on and it says the passengers it was the Norwegian Brokaw's to Senate was the evacuation was a slow and dangerous process as passengers Quested one by one from the ship. So they had the coaches and the passages one of them saying that never experienced anything so scary and. The gusts of wind up to thirty eight notes and the waves were over eight meters. So the ship developed engine problems of the west coast on Saturday afternoon, and it was drifting towards the rocks. They managed to manage to avoid hitting the road exports. Yeah. This poor people. He thought that they were getting on a on a lovely cruise along from Bergen to Steininger and so forth. Yeah. Didn't didn't turn out quite as the if the photograph used here in the guardian is really quite a striking on the ship is really. On isn't it? Yes. The water truly treacherous. But there's a small image next to it with a Levine's people wearing life jackets. And as you described Terry all of these people would have been expecting. They were going on a lovely cruise. And and yet they're they are all packed inside the same room together really powder on each other just hoping one explicit being. And they everybody seems to go that safely with a couple of people on stretchers cuts in the break limb. But mostly people were would find really quite
"brokaw" Discussed on Bill O'Reilly's Free Podcast
"Hi, I'm Bill O'Reilly. And this is the talking points memo, Tom Brokaw and karma. So you may know that the former NBC news anchor got into bit of trouble when he said that he believes Hispanics living in the USA have to try harder to assimilate into our culture here at means language customs that kind of thing. Well, that did not go down real well with the politically correct Khadr as who. Now rule the media. So right away on Twitter and all that a Brokaw was vilified. It took him about thirty seconds to start apologizing profusely saying, well, I've always been a champion of Hispanics, and I just want to make things better. But I'm sorry. Sorry. Sorry. Sorry. Sorry. Sorry. If I fended anyone. Okay. So here's the deal. If you speak generally about any ethnic group, with one exception any group, you are going to be vilified unless you say the best thing is constantly. If you criticize any group, all right, generally speaking, you are going to be hammered because we live in an age where that is not permitted that does not come under the constitutional right of free speech. The wonder of you can criticize in a general sense are white men. Go get them. Usually, whatever you want. White men are back evil terrible white privilege, toxic masculinity. All right, shaving, people can say that on television museum all day long. You'll be applauded for saying. That's it. No other group maybe Catholics, but that's even dicey. Because a lot of Hispanic Americans are Catholic, so Tom Brokaw. I see this. As not a terrible statement by Brokaw. I disagree with it. Because I used to teach high school in Dade County Florida, and I taught many many many Hispanics, Cubans and Nicaraguans central Americans and those kids were similar in pretty well. And sort of their parents in speak English at home. But so what and some of them the students spoke Spanish to each other is a little Spanish. So they were cursing me out. I knew it and I didn't encourage that. But I didn't move in fended by it. We know school policy that you had to speak English in the common areas. But by and large kids assimilated because they wanted to go to the movies, and they wanted to watch TV programs. They want to listen to music. It was all in English and a adopted American customs pretty cl- pretty fast. So when Brokaw said that I knew what he meant. But I disagree with it. I don't think there's a problem with assimilation in the Hispanic communities cross country. And if they choose to speak Spanish on by me. All right. So then the left goes after Brokaw who's a liberal guy. Either liberal got in he's assimilated from South Dakota. He's assimilated quite nicely into the salons Manhattan in Washington DC, but it's karma. Because the agency that he worked for NBC news is the champion a PC, and they run a network MSNBC that is a totalitarian regime. I remember when I worked at FOX I confronted then CEO of General Electric, Jeffrey Immelt who was overseeing NBC news G own did a sold it subsequently. I said how you let this these attack animals rip apart people on a daily basis when they're lying then at fag is all eight eight eight eight how do you do that? And. You know, I wanted to make money, and that's the only way I'm MBC can make money was attacking people like me others, Donald Trump now, so Brokaw. He he's not on MSNBC as far as a regular basis. But he is in a company NBC that fosters that. So now he's getting it from the crowd, which he champion that is called karma. And that is the talking points memo. I'm Bill O'Reilly for Newsmax reminding you that I do commentary every night on Bill O'Reilly dot com. That is no BS that is honest, and that is fact based we also have an amazingly successful book out called killing the SS. There are seventeen million copies of the killing books in print. We. Hope you check out killing the s s you like it. And if you like history the other seven books in the killing series are were the as well. I will see you soon..
"brokaw" Discussed on KGO 810
"Call us at eight hundred eighty eight ten Tom Brokaw on meet the press yesterday. And I I saw him when he came on. And I I just turned it off to watch. I think NFL's football or some the week before the Super Bowl. And then I read, you know, the stuff he said Trump at one point as said that Trump excuse me, Brokaw, Tom, Brokaw it. I'm sorry. At one point had said that. Yes. Panics have to teach their kids to assimilate, and they need to be taught English. But that's the wrong approach. I I'm not saying that they shouldn't teach their kids English totally teach their kids they should teach their children English to be smarter and to be better. But not to assimilate the idea that assimilation meaning be just like the others unless like yourself. Is not what I want. I want to learn from other cultures that are here. It sets of so great about this country is I mean every time I get an Uber. It's somebody from some different part of the world. And I just tell me about where you're in Pakistan where and I knew I know enough about Pakistan near the Kashmir area. And I and I know little bit. What was my like I'm talking to this guy? He's by fifty five or sixty fascinating. His English was okay. He was trying to learn some English. I could tell and he was trying to learn English. Probably because not because it was what you have to do to be an American. It was kind of a it's less of an assimilation and more of an evolution. I listened to him, and I listened to I guess the romantic line just were more familiar with Italian French Spanish. And I from what I understand learning. She's quite difficult for people that I talked to the company from other places Brokaw's approach and his language about assimilation. Maybe sad. It made me sad to think that the central Americans and Mexicans that come here. Feel like that. They're going to be a failure. If they don't learn it instead of wanting to just get smarter. Why aren't we teaching every kid in this country Spanish, why are we doing that? I mean, we should that's that's my thought. You're welcome to weigh in on this. It's gotta Sheila and Atherton Sheila. Hi, you're on with chip and Nikki thanks for calling. Hi. I'm sorry. Little nervous nervousness at this topic really hits home because we came to America thirty seven years ago. And my mom was thirty years old giving the fact that she didn't speak the language she she did our job. But she was never a this. This english. Chris species always in the background. She was in the kitchen. She was shy. She was scared. I mean, she didn't stop us from learning English. But at that, the kids will learn English period. No matter what kids will learn English. But the fact of, you know, enforcing something on somebody who tried to make a living tried to make a living for themselves to enforce this. You kinda. You make them. Way from it. It's harder to cups in America. Or anywhere. Forget American anyone in the world. I I traveled in in Europe in trying to even remotely try to speak. I mean, I I can't even talk. So godless all these people that's. They come here. They try and I don't think they're not trying for the kids not to learn. They're just trying to make a living languages develop. And they the evolve if you go back to the way, my great, my grand, my my grandmother was from Wales and she came over here when I was a kid. I couldn't understand a word. She said, and she, you know, she was older when I was I was little I mean, I barely remember. But my mom and my sisters would tell me stories, and and but she was speaking Welsh. And and and the Irish brogue was so hard as well. And so, you know, everybody that kind of the kind of reached out towards each other. And especially when if there were poor, you know, they were battling the they could go one attack each other or they could support each other. And I just you know, I mean, do we have to have a central language that we keep our laws and everything written in possibly, I guess, but the Canada does it with. I mean, they had this big push back in in Montreal with French versus English. And they you know, I think they're beginning to work it out. You know, it's taken a lot of years. I just I think that the people that are here and get understand too the Mexicans where we are. Right now. We're here long before us and the idea that. One more thing is live and let live. It's not a bad idea. Do that. All right. Thank you for your call. You degrade on the radio. Thanks so much. So yeah. I mean, I know for some people this is a real pragmatic exercise just warn you. Gotta learn the language if you want to succeed. And that may be true. But there's a nuance to all this my favorite word. There's there's a subtlety to it that you can embrace. It's about it's not just about as assimilation. It's about learning. It's about sharing, Bob and Simona Simona sonoma's..
Brokaw says he feels terrible commentary offended Hispanics
"For him saying that you all said, you don't want Brant Brown babies, which is just sad. And pathetic. Sad and pathetic too many darn apologies today. But that Melania Trump when I'm thinking to myself, if I'm a member if I'm a journalist, and there are certain times when I think that journalists come under fire unfairly because everybody's on a witch hunt. Now, right. Everybody's looking to find the bias that this whatever. And sometimes it's not necessarily deserved as someone who talks off the cuff for fifteen hours a week on this show. Let me tell you something sometimes things come out the way, you don't want them to. They just do it doesn't mean that you have a jock black hole in your. It means sometimes the words don't come out the way you want them to. So I have sympathy for that. But at the same time when you read this Matric retraction about morning at Trump. I how do you not just die a little inside? You know, what does it get? Right. They spell her name correctly. I really don't know if they got. That's why I really wanted to the article, and I can't find so is fifteen pages. They got everything wrong. That way it would appear that way. So I don't know what the actual article was I look I'm going to see if anybody has cashed it here. I am. I cannot see the oath wait now. No. Nope. Nope. That's from old. So now, I can't find it. And that's amazing to me. Oh, just found it. Yes. Found dead. Thank you press reader. Thank you. Thank you so much for this. I am. Okay. Got it. Let's go moving on to the story here. I'm going to read it because I'm interested to see like you said did they get anything right at all? You know, ever because certainly doesn't seem that way. Let me do this.
"brokaw" Discussed on KLBJ 590AM
"Rush to save ten percent. The Brokaw Trump I'm going to get into that in detail tomorrow. 'cause I gotta share something here with you. But Brokaw somehow, you know, these these old guard liberals. Oftentimes give themselves away and Brokaw dead. Brokaw said. During a meet the press appearance yesterday that Hispanic should work harder at assimilation. Meaning they should work harder at joining American culture. Well, I am here to tell you that the full force of the radical left came down on this old guy. And he didn't know what hit him. It was almost as bad as when he was accused of sexual harassment by Linda Vesta, which he called a drive by hit. So he quickly did a one eighty and he started apologizing left and right for saying Hispanic should work harder at assimilation. He also said that. They should be doing a better job of teaching their children to speak English. God forbid some truth seep out on NBC, which it did there. And. He was hit from all sides. But I want to give you the details of this. But I I got an Email Mr. Snerdley actually got an Email from a member of congress not going to mention a name number congresses. Or just listening to rush talk about Kamala Harris, offering free healthcare and how conservatives. Be wasting their time bringing up the price issue. So Mr. Snerdley. Could you ask the all knowing Mr. Limbaugh, if we can't use the fact that it's bankrupting the country as an argument? What should we be using as an argument, my point is that bankrupting the country has already happened? And it doesn't bother anybody the country is bankrupt. If it isn't somebody explained to me, what bankruptcy is we're borrowing a trillion dollars and the only reason we're not bankrupt. As we have a printing press, my point here is that the people the Democrats are promising free stuff to don't care. It's not an argument that it's going to. Caused them not to support free stuff. That is an appeal to citizenship. Is it not you need you oppose free healthcare the country can't afford it? The country can't afford free education for everybody. That's not what good citizenship that arguments not going to resonate with these people that citizenship that so tired. I think the way to approach it rather than say we're running out of money were bankrupt. Because who's going to believe that the government still up and running it spending left? And right. It doesn't seem to be any problem with all the debt. I think the way to approach it. And I need to think longer and harder about this. Because no matter what we say. The the response is going to be. Well, yeah, you say I can't have it. But such and such has it the rich have it. Why can't I have it? And then if you start preaching morality to them. Well, you know, it's just it's not right that every citizen get something free. It's it's going to. It's a tough thing. It used to work. It used to resonate with citizens that it was an improper thing for citizens to be demanding all of this from government. But now the democrat party is built their base on people who expected and who don't care if the country's bankrupt. Because if it is it store seems like it's perking along just fine to everybody. So I have some answers to this. But sadly, I'm out of busy broadcast moments. But I'm going to address this DeMarcus is it actually it's an excellent question. And there does need to be a political response to people like Cortes, and and Kamala Harris, but now I have to take a break back.
NBC's Tom Brokaw under fire for commentary about Hispanics
"Of Hispanics. I also half of the way the Hispanic should work harder. Some Malaysia that's one of the things I've been saying for a long time. Codified in their communities, but make sure that all their kids are learning to speak English pieces. Many Republicans see them as a group that will come here and become Democrats while others are afraid of intermarriage and having Brown.
