Fumio Kishida wins Japan leadership race, setting him up to become prime minister

"Japan's ruling liberal democratic party or ldp held its leadership runoff election. The last round was between two former foreign ministers. Kishida fumio and kotaro. Mr kushida came out on top. The ldp has dominated japanese politics since its founding in the nineteen fifties. So the party's new. President will be the country's new prime minister when tsuyoshi he steps down toy so in his victory speech. Mr kishida said that from today. I will with all of my energy. Get straight to work. How and where he will channel that energy though is still something of an open question as is how much. The electorate will support him. This year's election for the presidency was more unpredictable than most heading into the vote. Today there was some some genuine uncertainty about who would emerge the victor noah. Sneider is the economists. Tokyo bureau chief but this kind of free for all uncertain circus like for the mvp at least election campaign. I think really master distracted from deeper and more worrying trend in japanese politics namely growing voter apathy and disillusionment from the political process and given that apathy. How do you think it is that. Mr kishida came out on top. The dynamics of this election were a bit complicated. But let's unpack them. Konno tato former foreign and defense minister was the favourite in public and the favourite amongst younger diet members in the ldp who saw him as potentially more transformative figure who also crucially might help them keep their jobs in elections that are looming in later. This fall masan however is unpopular amongst. The party's old guard and and they see him sort of unreliable uncontrollable. He has a reputation for being a bit of a maverick so he won. The the vote of the rank and file in the first round of the party's election but he didn't win enough support amongst his colleagues to win the election outright so it went into a second round run-off there to she support from within the party really proved decisive. It is i think a result that reflects the enduring strength of the ldp's establishment and is in some ways the kind of rebuke of public

"bureau chief" Discussed on WLS-AM 890

"Washington, D. C Bureau chief Lynn Sweet Greg Hinds of Crain's Chicago business. Heather Sharon of WTTW, Chicago tonight and Ray Long of the Chicago Tribune. I guess the governor released a letter. To some lawmakers and others talking about Afghan refugees and what the state is doing to welcome them in. Greg, You did a piece on this, Uh, I believe in in cranes. What is the latest one of the numbers look like it's the latest is that we've all been watching and seeing all these people who have been essentially flood Afghan in Afghanistan in a rush, who are, uh, allied with us and are being held now U. S military bases all over The world. This closest Wisconsin as far as away as Germany, and, uh and Qatar. Um, and the process of vetting most people and making sure they're not. Security risk is now is moving along, and the federal government is now in the process of getting ready to start to resettle some of those folks permanently in this country, so they contacted local officials, including including local eighties, his hair and L. Michael Pritzker's office and the government this week sent out a letter saying that the state is Getting ready right now to house 830 people throughout the state. The White House is slightly different number 860 that potentially over the next year, so we could you might see as many as 3000 to pay on how much federal aid we get. And the ability of local post to take care of it. Um, uh, These people are, uh they're friends of ours. They're being tested for covid and everything else. Now they're being fairly A fairly well valid from my understanding, and the government says that, hey, this is a humanitarian things These people helped us, and we now need to help them. I'm surprised there's not more frankly coming this way. And I think that there may be more, uh, on the horizon. But reality is that you know, if we're going to be a welcoming city in a welcoming state, we should be opening our Or arms to it. Now there's going to be a blowback, obviously, but from some people who don't want, uh, any more people coming into the state. Uh, but I believe that you know, a lot of the leaders have made it clear that this is a walking in state. So to me, the number sounds a little low. Well, here is the reason how that number came to be it, as was explained to me by a state official the the number the federal government is listening to state governments, and they're not like giving us an assignment, like prepare for X number. Uh, after doing a survey the state found this is what the media capacity could be and even No longer range. It's 1000. So when you say, couldn't we do more? Here's why we can't, uh, as it was explained to me that some of these refugee agencies were just decimated during the trump years, so they have to gear up again. It's starting over. You know, you just don't turn this on and off like a spigot, so they have to go. Uh, D hiring training, putting together their You know, we re assembling their apparatus for dealing with these, you know, with the refugees, and when you say that you in turn some backlash. One of the other things I was told is that the state has no intention of not putting people were there now we're going to be safe so Where they are resettled two degrees based on the resources that they come and again don't underestimate the need for more federal support that Greg mentioned. We only get to 3000 if there's more federal help, So I think this is a very fluid situation right now. I understand. That the first few dozen of, uh Afghans have arrived very recently in the area. I'm not sure exactly where they are. The other thing is there. There's a bit of protectiveness right away to, um you want the people to feel safe, so it's not like The state is giving out. We have 12 refugees that are at the whatever house in Evanston and 10 and, yeah, Pilsen and 20 and Smoky and Christine and Tenley Park, But they don't want to call attention to people. You know, we as reporters. I know we'll figure this out. But there is a sense that they want people to not only feel welcomed feel safe. Yeah, only repeat that we've done this kind of thing before. Anybody who's familiar with the north side of Chicago would know that after the Vietnamese war and and then a lot of lot of people from Vietnam ended up here and by all indications, it become Americans just like the rest of us and our contributors society and, uh and I would hope the other parts of bumps. This is the kind of thing we need to do. I agree with Brandon is there Big enough support system here. Afghan wise are there A big Afghan presence. Oh, well, you don't need necessarily an Afghan president to have a support system, uh, in terms of, but I mean, I think We know we don't have a huge Afghan community. If you think of Chicago in the way that we do it having a Polish American community and some other, uh historical ethnic groups, uh back into just so many Chicago is our own little melting Pat. I think that more. I think the thing that will make more sense to think of this in terms of its are there other immigrant communities where you speak to saying language or have the same religion? Or have resources where you just have what you need. So, uh the other thing is a lot of these people are since they are the people who worked with Americans before might actually be able to, uh Get on their own feet faster than some other immigrant groups. We had the people that are in this special immigrant visa, classroom or partners with the United States. Military and related agencies in Afghanistan may well be able to get on their feet sooner and have their own preference. Where to live. I want to make it clear everybody listening. Uh, if no one is telling people where they have to live once they have here and there legally set up, you know people could go live with a want It's just that if you are in need of a lot of health and aid, uh, you have all these resources are easier to Spence of people. You know, live in one area. So this will be a work in progress. Especially insane If the federal aid comes to Illinois for this, and we'll have, uh, let Lin have the last word there. I know you have another commitment, so we'll let you go. Thanks for hopping on. Okay. Thank you. Heather. I want to pivot and ask you about Alderman Jim Gardner. It just keeps piling on for him. Right? Besides the rumors of the FBI investigation, the Chicago Board of Ethics Now weighing in what are they saying? Well, the Chicago board is also found probable cause to believe that Alderman Gardner twice violated cities Ethics Ordinance by one seeking a court record that in an attempt to smear a man who owns a business in his far Northwest side Ward but had organized a protest of something that the alderman was doing and that he violated the ethics ordinance. By seeking to retaliate against others who also opposed his Mm policies that was the latest but not the biggest problem facing the alderman who was just elected in 2019. I reported with my colleague Parish shuts that the FBI dating allegations of pay to play operations and his office as well as bribery, um, charges so the Alderman has not been charged with a crime yet. I wish I could tell you that I was able to speak with him that he has declined. Our invitations to appear on Chicago tonight, and he has not returned my phone calls seeking a statement. But it's clear that even as the ultimate took to before the City Council this week to sort of apologized for the profane, and the mystic parts of the text messages is still facing a significant number of inquiries about this question. Messages called for Inspector General Joseph Ferguson to investigate the ultimate as well..

Taliban Say They Took Panjshir, Last Holdout Afghan Province

"The taliban say they've taken control of a province north of kabul the last holdout of anti-taliban forces in afghanistan. It's the pan valley a resistance group. There denies those claims and that is just some of the news out of afghanistan today at the same time at least four planes were chartered to evacuate hundreds of people from afghanistan but had been unable to take off for days joining us now. Susannah george. She is the afghanistan and pakistan bureau chief for the washington post. She is in kabul susannah. Thanks for being with us this morning. Let's start with that news. Out of the panjshir province This is a storied province long-held stronghold of resistance to the taliban. Just explain what it means that this province has now fallen to to the telephone. Yeah well this is a very significant development and instruct says. You say it's because this was one of the few places. The dotan never managed to control back in the nineteen nineties when the group had control most of the country and so clearing this valley now it really clearly displays how much more of a formative fighting force the taliban is. Today than it was twenty years ago. They have much more training. They've been fighting against one of the most Powerful militaries in the world for the last two decades and they're also much better equipped force and this is largely thanks to desertions and surrender deals with afghan government forces in the lead up to the fall of kabul so now the taliban controls the entirety of the country we are waiting for them to announce the official formation of their government and meanwhile there are still so many afghans who were trying to get out you have been reporting that kabul airport is now open again for domestic travel What does that mean susannah. What does that look like. It's still a bit of a mess couple airport. I'm the only reason that some domestic flights have resumed is because of this temporary radio. Communication has been set up by country engineers between pilots and air traffic controllers. But there's no other navigation system set up at the airport. They all damaged during the chaos of the evacuation which means that all pilots when they're taking off and landing. They need to do it by sight. And this means that any commercial airline who wants to come in and out of kabul airport is just not going to be able to for insurance reasons and because of international aviation guidelines

China Is Limiting Kids Playing Video Games to 3 Hours a Week

"On wednesday. New rules took effect in china that severely restrict the amount of time. Young people can play video games online. Between friday and sunday gamers under eighteen years old will only be allowed to play between eight pm and nine pm the rest of the week. They won't be allowed to play at all. The regulation will also require all users to register using their real names and government issued. Id's it's of beijing's larger efforts to crack down on the growing power of tech firms and insert itself into the private lives of chinese citizens joining us to discuss how these new rules are being received. And what it means for. Gamers and gaming companies alike is the wall street. Journal's deputy china bureau chief josh chen hi josh. How are you so josh. This is the first time. China has restricted gaming for minors in two thousand nineteen limited playtime to ninety minutes on weekdays and it also limited. How much money they could spend on video games. So we're these new. Even more restrictive rules. A surprise was in wasn't a surprise last month. State media outlet published a commentary described video games as quote unquote opium of the mind and that triggered a pretty major sell off shares of gaming companies ten cent which is china's biggest gaming company. I think fell somewhere around. Eleven percent in prior to that china's leader xi jinping has taken aim at video games as a danger to the development of chinese youth. So we've suspected for a while it's something might becoming but what was surprising was just how strict and specific these restrictions were three hours is pretty miserly. Yeah these new restrictive rules. How is china planning on enforcing them in. That's a really good question. They haven't been specific about it and the way that things often work in china's at the communist party will come up with rules and then sort of leave it up to the internet companies themselves to figure out how to enforce

The hope is to head off legal challenges by Republicans Capital Bureau chief Mark Maxwell in Springfield. This latest move is the most glaring evidence yet. The Democrats muscled the first map through just to meet that deadline, and now they're muscling a second real map through if you will to cover their tracks and button up the parts of that first map that could have been shot down in the courts. Republicans argue it's after June 30th that constitutional deadline and by still drawing these maps, it means it should go to a bipartisan commission.

"Sharing that history because that is fascinating. You know those speaking time. Say so much about power and control in way. The i'll see you see work by the way. Thomas bach spoke a lot more than that than any of them. But you know. I think that when we talk about the olympics oftentimes you know i myself am in this position a lot. We talk about the devastation. it usually brings to host cities and things like that one of the things. I appreciate about the nuance. Right is these stories right. It's this history. It's the other kind of things that we don't see in some of these larger conversations. And i really appreciate that history So now that the the ceremonies have started. Is there a sense for your sow for people around you. Are you really excited for certain events You know athletes yearbook and yeah. I mean mc site about a boss karimi the afghan lead who Was one of the flag bearers. Refugee team is a swimmer I think are going to go get my eye opening going watching some wheelchair rugby. My understanding is that the japanese team is actually a big medal contender. So and can i tell you. That's my favorite. We did a preview episode. That's my favorite. I said when we talked about it. It's because originally it was called murder. Yes hands so you'll have to tell me. I can't imagine it in person that just it seems just like sonically in person to be overwhelming like the sounds of collision. I love it. I'm very excited for your experience. I see that and then I also wanna see some wheelchair basketball Apparently like a really tough event to get Permission to get in Hoping i'll get to see some of that I ended up learning a lot about table tennis during the olympics. I had never watched it live or you know thought of it. Even as a professional sport and deserve this vague notion of ping pong diplomacy and then washed a lot of it and learned a lot of it. There's this great commentator american actually adam bo- bro- who does them online commentary youtube videos and he's like you know a table tennis obsessive and he's still here for the paralympics to So going to chat with him and of course obviously table. Tennis have just watching the different ways at table. Tennis can be played one of the things. That's super fascinating for me. Because i have never covered a paralympics before is just the the sort of fine slicing dicing of all the different categories. So it's not just you can't just say that someone's swims the butterfly. It's sort of their deal. All these different categories depending on their disability. Swimming is really interesting. Because i think it's one of the most democratizing sports that almost anyone with any disability can participate whereas obviously you know wheelchair. Rugby by definition is someone who's in a wheelchair not with other kinds of disabilities per se. So i think that It'll be just so fascinating to see. The different ways in which people with different abilities are playing the same sport but in kind of different ways. I just really looking forward to seeing some of that. That's really exciting And you you mentioned Japan strength in in wheelchair rugby. Is there another kind of sense of like the go-to events for the japanese delegation to really show out in so i am not totally beyond just sort of basing it on watching morning television shows.

"You know setting on my phone that tells me what time is in tokyo because it has been lake the most useful thing this summer because i time has confounded me But it was really helpful this week. Because i called up matoka. Rich is the new york times. Tokyo bureau chief and she's reporting on the ground covering the olympics and paralympics games. I wanted to talk to her after the opening ceremonies. And i was trying to figure out when that would be so now. I know at the time that i recorded. It was that morning and it was still night for me on that same day but for her. It was already the next morning because tokyo is thirteen in slash. Fourteen hours ahead of us so i chatted with oko the morning after she went to the paralympic opening ceremonies and we chatted of course about the para games and also lingering ongoing covert concerns japan's imperial and in long history of paralympic support and a few other things that we had on our minds. So it's here. The paralympics have started and you were at the opening ceremonies. You're covering the opening ceremonies of the paralympic games. And i know you went to the opening of the olympics as well. What were your takeaways from the opening of the pair games. So i mean i think this is a very small sampling of friends and family and other journalists. Who are watching with me but i think that just adds an actual ceremony. The paralympic ceremony was more vibrant creative. there's a lot of vital energy in the performances A lot of people with disabilities. Who were you know. Very talented artists musicians dancers participated. So that part of it was actually quite vibrant. I think that was a little bit of a somber mood in the creative design of the opening ceremonies of the olympics. And so it was actually just sort of fun to watch in that respect. There's still that whisper nelson and You know that bittersweet feeling that. I certainly had at the olympics as well as the paramedics watching over the sea of empty stands and that when the athletes are doing the march of the nation's their waving to cameras but not spectators. There aren't the huge cheers There were a couple of really poignant moments in the paralympic march because the the lead in delegation was the refugee team and one of the flag. Bearers abbass karimi is afghan. He's a refugee from afghanistan. He left many years ago but of course because of the current chaos. The paralympic team from afghanistan was unable to fly into tokyo because they couldn't get flights out of kabul. So you know there's this. He's not only representing the refugee team leading in the entire parade of athletes but he's the only afghan athlete at the games by default and then There was also the fact that the new zealand team which has sent thirty two para athletes decided not to march in the parade because of covert fears. And that's really the theme of course of this whole entire both the olympics and the paralympics right that tokyo the ioc and the ipc decided to go ahead in the face of a pandemic and Things got worse in terms of the kovin situation in tokyo and all over japan. You know just ninety minutes before the opening ceremonies began. I got the You know the daily update of number of new cases and particularly severe cases. You know people require ventilators or other Intensive care and that was at a record. High japan on the same day that the paralympic games open. So there's definitely a lot of concern about that In terms of the mood in japan that was interesting..

China Seizes Upon Collapse of Afghanistan to Mock US

"All these chaotic scenes. One global power has projected calm. China's ambassador shared a photo of the country's embassy in afghanistan with flag flying high and no guards pictured at the doors on me. Do you see jin. She gained a foreign ministry. Spokesperson scolded america this week urging it to stop interfering and other countries affairs under the pretense of democracy and human rights. The suggestion is that china is more dispassionate in its interests on troubled by ideology as it engages on other matters. China's made very clear that it sees the full of the afghan government as a gigantic failure for america and a reason to died. Everything about how. America thinks the world should be run. David rennie is the economists. Beijing bureau chief. The most vija message is that america looks. Bad looks unreliable. And that's a great message for chinese propaganda machine but they want to advance a longer term arguments about how foreign relations based on interests security economic interests. That is a better way of running world than trying to create a better afghanistan.

The tokyo olympics formerly came to an end on sunday with the closing ceremony. We'll joining me now. Is monaco tokyo bureau. Chief of funeral. Wilson you're not as we know. These games were delayed for year because of the pandemic when they did finally go ahead. It was in the face of a great deal of opposition from the japanese people. How do they feel now hydrogen. Well that's very question. I think you know the early polls saying that slight majority of people were okay with with the government going ahead with the games. But i wouldn't say that was a lot of enthusiasm over for the games are very pleased with the way japan did for good. Tv viewing figures. Appreciate good. but i think just going out and about in tokyo you sat and you felt like the city was slightly disconnected from the event. It was almost like the event was happening. Somewhere else People around tokyo couldn't go and see the event you weren't seeing athletes around the city so bit of a mixed picture Thrilled with the the tally of goals for japan. Which is the highest ever. But i don't know there's a slight feeling that You know. I felt like once it started. People just thought they were bit resigned. You did still see some protesters outside the stadium last night but i think the really hard opposition was worn away by the time the the event came around

Japan's Population Problem

"The world's attention is going to be turning to japan soon because the olympic games are going to be ending. Is there a simple way to describe what life is like. Their japan is kind of the lifestyle superpower of the world. It's a very easy place to live at least on the surface. This is miyoko rich. She's the tokyo bureau chief for the new york times. And then i think it's when you did just a little bit blow. You see that there are a lot of problems. Some of them looming in the future on some of them very much there today and that makes it a place of somewhat cognitive business. Maybe like all societies. But i think japan because it looks so beautiful and so efficient and so fun especially in a place like tokyo or osaka okeyo on the surface. I think people don't realize what might be lurking beneath rate. So let's talk about one of those issues. Can you tell me a little bit about japan's demographic problems well the predominant issue is that it is rapidly aging. It's currently considered the oldest country in the world in terms of the proportion of the population. That's already over sixty five. It's approaching about thirty percents and it will be more than that in about ten years and the population has also been declining for the last decade. So there are a lot of old people and fewer and fewer young people. So it's just actually kind of hard for me to imagine life in a country where everyone is so old. I was kinda hoping that you can help me. Imagine it so. Let's say i'm a young woman. In japan maybe in the countryside or maybe in a city can you take me sort of on a walk. Like what do i do. I feel this happening around me. Well if you're a young woman in the countryside you're alone.

"No surprise that beijing was the site of massive. Well orchestrated celebrations today. Our beijing bureau chief david rennie. Was there herded by the foreign ministry hours before it. all began. Toews comes strokes a hundredth birthday party and they did that in tenement square. Which is the ceremonial heart of china. The crowd was handpicked. They were almost all party members. I was sitting next to members of the people's congress that the city of beijing. There's a lot of singing of communist party songs and everyone around me knew all the words those in greatest hits like without the communist party there would be no china so this mix of the very grand informal and the kind of national but also this strange kind of private family gathering of a party celebrating in the open. It's actually control of this giant country and presumably this this gathering was also very carefully controlled very interesting that this is a very confident party. But it's the chinese communist party and so there's always an element of paranoia and extreme control. Not only we rule security checked multiple times but this is also a china that is determined to have zero cases of college. Although they haven't been cases for months in beijing we all made to quarantine for twenty four hours before we set foot on the square. We want to wear face masks will call the tested. Multiple times and in fact many western ambassadors from places like europe refused to come because they were told that they too would have to spend a night in a state guesthouse in multiple covered tested. And they simply thought. I was undignified. So it was very very controlled. Very very paranoid festivity.

"Editor at Fox and David Renny, Beijing bureau chief for the Economist. Thanks for having me and David ready. Beijing bureau chief for the economists and David joins us from Beijing, David thanks again for staying up late for us. So how much interest has there been in China? Over what's happening here, David It's been really big. Most American elections come and go without a lot of attention. But this is definitely the biggest ever Chinese interests in an election and for a lot of people on social media. They've been playing it for laughs. And so the censors who normally very strictly control social media, they've been allowing a ton of jokes at particular Donald Trump's expense. There's a whole kind of mim out there that he's actually a secret agent for China because he's so incompetent on such a bad president for America that he's a kind of a secret agent who they call Chun Jenga, which means build up the country Trump which build up the country, the country in question is China, and there's even kind of names of him in a kind of Chinese on the uniform with things like saying you're doing. You're doing your job so well. You're going to get courts Don't blow your cover, Comrade Trump. That's the funny side. The much less funny side is that This. This is being allowed to happen because the Chinese public is being told that American democracy indeed all Western democracies are a sick, chaotic joke. And it's a system that chooses bad leaders like President Trump has not saved his people from 200,000 deaths from Corona virus, which really shocks the Chinese public who've had basically virus is more or less disappeared inside China's borders. And so there's this very strong propaganda push that democracy is Corrupt, chaotic can't even produce the result quickly. How terrifying on DH dangerous It would be to live in America and you see state meeting with images of riots and boarded up shops and people with guns. In the Chinese public generally who have a lot of admiration for many things about America. At the moment, they're kind of shaking their heads in disbelief and really buying into that government line. But this is an example of democracy completely failing, Have the country's leaders spoken out. They're being super cautious. So I was called in for a briefing recently with a senior Chinese official who wants to very deliberately planned the idea that China doesn't care. Who wins the next election. There's an element of bravado to that China doesn't want to see that it's waiting on American voters. But there's also kind of bleak truth somewhere in there that basically the last four years, the Chinese leadership thinks that Donald Trump really ripped the mosque off on revealed that America is essentially Not willing to share the top spot at the top table of kind of world powers and that America is vicious, and America is deliberately trying to keep China down. And so that's some really bleak level. Even if maybe they'll try and suck. You reach out to Joe Biden and try and restore some of the trade ties and see if they can mend some fences, if only to buy time for Chinese companies to buy things they want from American suppliers and to get some more American investment but really deep down. The consensus at the top of the Chinese machine is that America is Two vicious and too selfish to share top spot on it. So this is basically bent on doing China harm on China needs to get stronger and so powerful that America has just accept It's got to back off, so it's a really bleak kind of the talk is all of struggle on sort of historic confrontation. So that's the real truth that it may be in some ways, doesn't matter that much. Who's the next American president? Jennifer, can you bring us up to speed on the reaction from Russia? Share, So the Kremlin has largely been pretty quiet. So far. I think they're kind of just waiting to see how it shakes out. But below the Kremlin level. It's it's been a hotly kind of Contested conversation going on in Russia, basically, between you know the Russian government and supporters of the government and the opposition. So you know you have to understand that in Russia elections do not play out the way that they do here. And by that, I mean, there's not really a question the end of the day who's gonna probably come out on top. There is some limited kind of opposition, but it's very much not democratic in the way that our elections are our elections here. The fact that it's taking so long to count votes And that its so messy that's democracy right like that's because we don't have a predetermined outcome. And so what you're seeing in Russia is, you know Alexey Navalny, the the main opposition leader. Who you know, listeners may remember was poisoned. It's suspected by, you know, or have been ordered by Putin at the highest levels of the Kremlin. You know, one of his top aides did a live stream on YouTube. Basically, you know, live streaming the presidential election here. And for the opposition. It's very much an example of you know, this is what we could have in Russia. Right? This is we could have real democracy. We could have it to where the outcome isn't already known before you even cast your votes. But for the Russian government, they're using this as a propaganda tool to say, Look, the fact that there is chaos and then it's messy that there could even be potentially violence. Right. This is why we need control. This is why you don't want that kind of messy democracy. This is why, you know, we need to have You know, good control over what happens and peaceful, stable, You know system and so it's very much this kind of ideological political fight That's playing out with the United States election as the kind of backdrop to this we're talking to Jennifer Williams, senior foreign editor at box and David Renny, Beijing bureau chief for the Economist. Later this hour, will also be joined by writer and host Fareed Zakaria lots to get to including the latest global response to the pandemic. But first I want to get to this exchange.

Now President Trump's choice to run the agency overseeing the way has thrown into turmoil because his agency has been investigating. VA is White House Bureau chief for alleged bias against President Trump NPR media correspondent David Folkenflik broke this story of political interference, David Good morning. Good morning, Steve, one of the White House bureau chief, Steve Herman, allegedly do Well. He was accused by these two political aides, Parent agency of Ah conflict of interest and usually in journalism. If there's conflict of interest, it might be that you have a close family member who works for one of people you're writing about. Maybe you took money from it or participated from it. In this case, it was an examination of White House bureau chief Steve Herman's Our reports and tweets. His reports. Two of them were from early September. September 8th September, 10th one was about An event that Trump held a huge rally in North Carolina in defiance of local and state public health officials and their warnings about such gatherings during the time of the pandemic, the other report that the president said he denied lying in the wake of the release of audiotapes that between the president on and the investigative journalist Bob Woodward, in early part of the year in which the president talked about how severe and threatening the pandemic was even as publicly he wanted to allay concerns. Additionally, they pointed very much too. Tweet that Steve Herman made and even likes or re tweets that he made of other people's tweets in which they said there was a conflict of interest shown because it those individual treats showed specific points of view from people that might be Ah, ah Unflattering to or against the president. I'm a little confused here, David Because first you're telling me that Steve Herman covered ordinary news of the White House, and I think you're telling me that he's under investigation not for denouncing the president or something. But for quoting people in news stories and tweets, who had critical things to say about the president that is the alleged conflict of interest, is quoting people who had critical things to say about the president. That appears to be the case. Yes, I've reviewed some of the material from the report that they compiled and that's exactly what they're talking about. And let me just say, I read Hermann stories. They're very similar to standard and fairly straight ahead stories that appeared in other kinds of news agencies about the very same offense. And we should mention again via has heard around the world seen around the world. They're on the radio or on television there on the Internet and so forth. It's that kind of news agency and what you describe is what they're supposed to be doing is UN remarkable news coverage is straight ahead news coverage to inform people about what's going on in America and around the world. However. There is a Trump appointee running the agency that oversees VOA. He's in charge. What's wrong with him making demands or someone at the agency making demands into how the covers things right? Well in newsrooms, ATT major and respected news organizations around the country including our own, There are rules that insulate News coverage from the decisions of people who are the very top of the business. In our case, Let's be clear. John Lancing, the CEO of NPR, He used to be the CEO of the parent agency of Voice of America. And for that reason, their policies protecting our news from from him, generally in terms of interfering coverage and specifically on this kind of episode, because it involves something he once had an involvement in in the Keys, a voice of America. The parent agency of that is enjoined by federal rules and federal law from being able to interfere with or direct specific coverage that something they're not supposed to be able to do. You can find that language on my story and in their website, so there's a problem with Michael Pack the CEO or his top aides being involved there. You're telling me that I Congar on the via a website and find language suggesting that what Michael packed the top executive here is doing is illegal. It appears to be laid out in black and white on his own website, and we reproduce that on our story as well.

G. hearing today up on Capitol Hill at the Senate judiciary hearing Pamela Shinsei commission a temporal me John the real reason Republican senators of long standing don't want to go to war on the dems is because they may have some skeletons in their closets and they may come out of they don't give professional courtesy to the Democrats well Tim I think it's always a bad Lisa my my view it's always a bad policy to pick fights with the FBI the NSA or the CIA the but this is this is coming from you know John Hall and I am of your card carrying member of the trilateral commission number the luminosity and also of a Mason so I'm a I'm a deep state fan from way back but I I get your I get your contention there are before we get to John pressure him from politico dot com I want to go over the so Joe by an article from the same website according to four people who rarely talked to Joe Biden all of whom of course one remain anonymous it is virtually inconceivable that he will run for reelection in twenty twenty four when he would be the first acted in Syrian president if I miss elected a prominent advisor to the campaign said he's going to be eighty two in four years he will not be running for reelection now this sends out a pretty clear signal to the younger members of the party and the far left in the Democrat party that are not overly enamored about to Joe Biden it will help lighten mollify younger voters especially on the left who are very excited about his candidacy for some reason in fear that his nomination would serve as an eight year road block to the next younger generation of Democrats by signaling that it will only serve one term in choosing a running mate and cabinet that is young and diverse Biden could offer himself to the Democrat primary electorate as the Canada best suited to defeat Donald Trump this makes Joe Biden a great transition figure this is the unnamed advise on that already quoted another top Biden adviser put it this way he's going into this thinking I want to find a running mate I can turn things over to after four years but if that's not possible or doesn't happen though run for reelection but he's not going to publicly make a one term pledge since thanksgiving there is been a gradual shift among prominent Democrats once deeply skeptical of Biden's candidacy Elizabeth Warren is slept she's lost all the games here too since July Peter Bodo judge has shown no evidence that he can he can get the older Democrats on his side of the ledger it can also achieve any appeal among African American and Latino voters Bynes face some older working class white and African American voters remain remarkably consistent in polls the greatest threats to Biden had the neutralize Harris's suspender campaign Booker is scroll the struggle to even qualify for the next debate and Patrick who is a pre thanksgiving entrance to the race this call in and tell us someone person my Bloomberg might become a potential super Tuesday threat but that remains to be seen the another by by the visor again these are all anonymous said Biden has ruled out a one term pledge because he thinks it's a non starter and it's a gimmick and one of the political strategist who has recently talked wanna Biden's close advisers made the argument for serving one term this way by one be running if it was a present Jeb bush or present Marco Rubio is running just because of Donald Trump so a one term pledge would be viewed as an act of self closeness putting the country of Haiti head of any ambition I don't buy that Joe Biden is plenty and this is now open for forty years but it would make him appeal to another portion of the further left Democrat base at time for any will take that up with John also there's some inside information one is only two articles of impeachment against that and a blog celebrated his birthday this week and his wife gave him a Facebook posting as a birthday present and they're still waiting for the Christmas miracle from sixteen hundred and let's talk a little bit more about that coming up in just minutes here double the US WLS traffic at six fourteen the eaves and easy twenty minutes up to like double at forty coming back we cooked a mantra is a forty now the Kennedy out to the airport thirty five fifty coming in the Eisenhower forty seven to the three ninety and found a crash.

"Okay. So Liz sly is the Washington Post Beirut bureau chief, and here is what she tweeted out in the aftermath of this big esscalation in the Persian Gulf to oil, tankers struck and fire in the strait of Hormuz focus of US, Ron tensions comes after Trump failed to heed the last tank warning, and imposed more sanctions that lessons is still astonishing it beggars description. If the Iranian government, a terrorist backing evil repressive disgusting regime bombs, a couple of tankers and then threatens the most powerful military force in the history of mankind, and that most powerful military force in the history of mankind led by the president of the United States, the commander in chief refuses to kowtow to eight a third rate, power that represses its own people in jails dissonance. Then it's his fault. It's President Trump's fault, if the Iranians get more militants, but Barack Obama. Who spent years lying blatantly to the faces of the American people lying in their face? Ben Rhodes his national security adviser openly acknowledged that his involvement in the administration involved crafting, a narrative, I e lying to the American people that the Iranian regime is about to moderate, and if the United States made some sort of payoff deal, then Iran would become a moderate stable force for good in the region. It was all a lie. They knew it was lie at the time, and they pushed it they pushed that lie. The Obama administration kowtowed to dictators on a regular basis. It was Barack Obama pledging flexibility on an open mic to the Russian government in the middle of the two thousand twelve election. Was he ever hit with headlines like this from the Washington Post bureau chief in Beirut, of course not? It's that President Trump refuses to kowtow to the Iranian government. That's a big problem. And as I say, when the Iranian government, engages in the spread of terror across planet earth. Then it's all about. Well, I guess the west must have provoked them are the west must have done something bad, this springs from peculiar and ugly perspective on America. Foreign policy and really the world that suggests that there is a power hierarchy that dictates morality in other words that if you are more powerful, you must have victimized somebody at the bottom of the scale. And so the people at the bottom of the scale should feel fully liberated to be as evil as they wanna be around his put upon by the west and therefore if they bomb random ships. Well, you know that's just what they do guys. And you gotta give them some room to express themselves. What you expect the president of the United States to battle before the whims of dictators who literally lied chance death to Israel death to America. That's what you want Washington bureau chief from Beirut, how pathetic we'll be back in a second. But first, let's talk about your online security. So I'm a public figure that means I'm deeply worried about security, plus them online, like sixteen out of every twenty four hours.

He was the Washington Post Taran bureau chief when he was taken prisoner and held hostage or captive for five hundred and forty four days starting in two thousand fourteen his family, the Washington Post other journalists and the Obama administration a worked on behalf of his release. And finally got him out. He's written a new memoir called prisoner. He's now an opinion columnist for the Washington Post and a contributor to CNN. While you were in solitary, you weren't allowed any books. But you know, they said, you should pray. So you said, well, if you want me to pray get me a Cora, so they did they got your core on your father was Iranian and immigrated to America, I don't know if he was Muslim or Latin nod, I don't know if you were brought up with any of the teachings of the Koran, but what was it like for you to read the car? And because I think whether you're a Christian or a Jew or a Muslim let the ancient texts are are there fascinating tax, and yet they're very rich tax. And they're all full, no matter what religion you practice. You can find some wisdom and all of us tax. So what was it like for you to read the Koran? What did you find an at that surprised you, you know, for for better or worse? I should say that my father was a very devout Shiah Muslim growing up and came to America. And while he didn't practice in the same ways that you're supposed to in terms of fasting during Ramadan. And praying five times a day. He's still was a great believer his entire life. My mom came from a Catholic background and. They were both raised with religion. They decided to raise my brother, and I and the San Francisco Bay area so take that for what it's worth we. We didn't we didn't spend a lot of time in places worship other than on Christmas. I think reading the Koran. Gave me a new sense of how Iran is organized politically. And legally I mean, there's a lot about laws. It's a it's a system of of law and politics, and it's also there's a lot of venture vengefulness in in the Koran. I'll just say that it it didn't do much for me. In terms of establishing any kind of foundation of faith. This is fresh air. And if you're just joining us, my guest is Jason resign. He was the Washington Post Taran bureau chief when he was taken prisoner and held hostage or captive for five hundred and forty four days starting in two thousand fourteen his family, the Washington Post other journalists and the Obama administration a worked on behalf of his release.

While you were in solitary, you weren't allowed any books, but they said, you should pray. So you said, well, if you want me to pray get me a car get out. Exactly, exactly. And you know, originally, they were denying her the right to visit me because they said, well, she's a foreign person actually should not a foreign person by virtue of her marriage to Iranian, man. She's been a citizen of Iran since the early nineteen seventies. So these were little things that we have to push on hard, and they had to handle threats and rejection, but ultimately we're able to push through and we established the ability for my mom to come and see me once a week. And then it turned out that the Koran says that. The marriages are nullified if they're not re- consummated on a regular basis. I found that hard to believe that that was codified into Iranian law. But it is and after many months, they started giving us the opportunity to spend a few hours together periodically, which boggled my mind. But it wasn't something that I was going to say no to so did they give you a room for the conjugal? Visit. Yeah. It was so creepy. It had a room with a mattress on the floor a small dorm refrigerator. A little shower. And you know, we had the opportunity once a week to have a family meeting real with my wife, and my mother like you see in the movies, you know, behind the glass window. With a through a phone, right? But but this conjugal room was right next to that. It's like why are you putting me in a glass? Why can't I have a meeting with my mom and my wife in a room where we're all sitting together. If you're gonna let me a couple of weeks down the road spent several hours with my wife in the most intimate circumstances. It's kind of weird. And it was there was a sign in the in the room that said that, you know, there was no surveillance devices in this room, you know, out of respect, and courtesy, and, you know, Islamic chastity or whatever it said, and that just kinda tipped us off to the fact that there was almost certainly plenty of devices in the room. But it was it was a small morsel of. Of opportunity right to be close to my wife to talk to hold hands to do. What husbands and wives have been doing for Monia? And I think it helped in the later months from helped me from going more insane. Let's take a short break here. And then we'll talk some more. If you're just joining us. My guests is Jason resign.
