The Executive Order To Ban TikTok and WeChat

"He went ahead and did it president trump has signed an executive order to block all transactions with tiktok maker Bite Dance, as well as all transactions with Chinese tech giant tencent beginning on September twentieth. Now, it's worth noting that September twentieth would be five days after Microsoft's deadline to acquire the non-chinese parts of Tiktok or not. Quoting the verge, the spread of APPs controlled by the Chinese government continues to threaten the national security foreign policy and economy of the United States. The order reads the United States must take aggressive action against the owners of Tiktok to protect our national security and quote a parallel order. Banda transactions with we chat a texting APP in China that maintains a small user base in the US in both orders, the president names, the International Emergency Economic Powers Act as authority for the move, as well as the national emergencies act effectively naming talks continued operation within the United States as a national. Emergency such. A move is highly unusual and will likely be subject to a legal challenge. The executive branch has the power to levy sanctions against individuals and corporations by them on the entity list as the US did against Y. and Z., t. e. last year but such sanctions are typically put in place by the Commerce Department rather than the White House and Senate to specific rulemaking procedures that seemed to have been short-circuited by surprise executive order. The president also has the power to force the divestiture of US companies from foreign ownership through the committee on foreign investment in the United States or. But doing so also requires a specific process that seems to have been discarded in favor of a broader executive order. It's unclear how the order will affect talks ability to operate in the short term unlike Weiwei Z. T. The company does not require licenses to operate its network and nothing in the order seems to require APP stores to seize hosting the APP. However, it explicitly covers subsidiaries of by dance specifically, the US based TIKTOK division, and we'll apply to any and all financial transfers to and from those subsidiaries as a result. TIKTOK. Likely to seek a stay of the order in court or be forced to abruptly discontinue services as it takes effect and quote. So everyone basically scrambling to figure out what all this means. There does appear to be a loophole in the order because the order has a clause that reads quote to the extent permitted under applicable law and quote. But also, as Alex, tweeted quote, if I'm reading this correctly, it obliges apple to remove chat from the Chinese APP store, which would effectively kill the company's phone business in China. China represents a little under fifteen percent of Apple's global revenue. But at the same time, the order says we chat quote has over one billion users worldwide, which means it's counting Chinese users as we chat users given the references to chat having more than a billion users. It's clearly intended to apply to the APP globally I. think that would be substantially more damaging for apple in China then losing Google services was for way in the West. I. Think and yet this is the US government doing it to both and quote indeed, Bloomberg has a piece of art that we chat is banned from the Chinese APP store. The ramifications would be huge because we chat is a communication and transaction cornerstone in modern Chinese life. Being without chat would be a big enough deal for Chinese users as to essentially possibly kill the iphone business in China, and at the very least would probably be a big deal as to go to China into some major form of retaliation. Now tencent owns wechat tencent has a market cap of six, hundred, eighty, seven, billion dollars. Its stock was down more than ten percent afterward of this executive order came down. As Dan primack tweeted quote the tencent we chat order maybe more consequential for us tech companies because it seems to ban any transactions with tencent tencent invest in lots of us, companies including fortnight maker EPIC Games. Let's play this out. tencent has an investment in read it tencent can't do transactions after forty five days. So must tencent divest within forty five days if not, how would it ever sell trying to get clarity on this to end quote? Yeah I WANNA put aside the questions as to whether or not Chinese apps represent a security threat for the moment. I for one have uninstalled Tiktok on my phone because I don't trust it. But more immediately, I think most in silicon valley are watching to see if there is. Any immediate cascading of retaliatory actions by the Chinese that could put a cramp in wet silicon valley can do globally. Sources are telling buzzfeed news that an all hands meeting Mark Zuckerberg told facebook employees that banning tiktok would set a bad precedent code I. Just think it's a really bad long-term precedent and that it needs to be handled with the utmost care and gravity whatever the solution Zuckerberg said. I'm really worried. It could very well have long term consequences in other countries around the world and quote. While noted that tick Tock Band in India in June was being hit. Now he alluded to the idea that facebook products could become a target for another country. Later, he did however sympathize with the trump administration's national security concerns. Quote. I. Certainly think that there are valid national security questions about having an APP that has a lot of people's data that follows the rules of another country government that increasingly is kind of seen as a competitor Soccer Berg said quote.

‘Ellen DeGeneres Show’ Workplace Is Under Investigation By Warner Media

"Reports of a toxic work, culture and crew furious over poor communication during the Corona virus shut down. Despite the bad reports, there have not been any direct allegations made about Ellen herself. For more on all the bad news that the Ellen Show will speak to Matt Donnelly Sr. Film writer at Variety, so essentially human resources representative for both the production company that makes Ellen just called Tele Pictures and Morning brother. It's which obviously, areas the program or distributes it have both come together and sort of pursuit of information about sort of the day to day experience for Ellen's employees, a member, we have changed the sort of reference the stories said that their goal is to ultimately create a work environment where ever wanted sort of protected. And also can sort of advance and flourish and safety, So I think it's you know, a pretty responsible move on their part, But at this point, what we know is that they're reaching out to current and former employees to discuss their experiences, where presumably will conduct as sort of a larger report about what if anything, needs to change their Now, let's talk about these two reports just to kind of see what we're working with here. Back in April, Variety reported on the treatment of crew members during the Corona virus locked down so very loosely when things initially shut down, there was crew members who were saying that we weren't really being told what was going to be the fate of our ours or our pay. And then when Ellen's resumed some sort of filming at her home, they were kind of left out of the lurch on that, too. And I guess they hired Nonunion workers to do that work instead of them. Yeah, A lot of the sources we spoke with who are familiar with the production basically say that her long term crew people have been with her sums of the entire 17 year run of the show. Just expected a better level of treatment in terms of if and when they would come back, You know, up until the moment we published a report that Legacy crew was told to sort of expect dramatically reduced compensation, even though the show of going on filming at the normal rate, so I think a lot of people thought sort of betrayed in away by mixed messages, especially for someone who's banner. Heather staying for her jealous to be kind, and some say this is very difficult situations, obviously, in the confusion and chaos of the Corona virus pandemic that hidden in some ways, it makes sense. Maybe hire those non union workers because they have to do something, maybe things that the union might not have agreed for their workers, depending on safety, and all that, So sometimes those things make sense. But they were just saying that They weren't even afforded that choice or whatnot. Of course. Yeah, I think it was a lack of transparency that really got people. And yes, you know, Krone viruses cause such a dramatic ripple effect how we do or more specifically how we don't do production at the moment. So, yeah, the union might have to look the other way occasionally on getting some people back to work instead of, you know, sort of a massive sun town. But again, I think it was that sort of lack of care. That really got to some long term employees. Yeah, and the pay was also an issue. I know. They told them you're gonna get reduced hours or reduced Pay that way. But shortly after you guys posted your story, then it started coming out. Well, well, they're going to get paid their full amount. They're full pay all that stuff. I think that the production sort of realised, But the right thing to do was especially because if you follow the logic through if they were taking the same amount of episodes, that means that this is going into syndicated viewership and selling the same amount of advertising No one's really losing money on the end. It's just obviously out of an abundance of caution here to figure out how to actually make the show. But you know again, and I think Hollywood is a town that when your staff looks the way that l Inez and you've got no. Ah, working family or some people put it in the over 17 years, they expect you to cover them The way they've covered. You end up with a large part of the frustration and you know another thing. That was in that same report was that you know, no one had even stepped in and said, How are you? How are your family? How is your mental house? Which I think a lot of companies, you know, including the publisher Variety. Ah, lot of people didn't do that. You know that They were here for you. If you knew Greece sources that child care if you need meditation class you any number of things to sort of band together in a really unprecedented in highly stressful time. A lot of people thought that that wasn't done and we're quite surprised. The other part of this. In mid July, Buzzfeed published a report alleging a toxic work culture there. There was an employee who said that there was some racist behavior going around and a few other things that just really made working there on the show, not really tolerable. The budget reports have sort of a spectrum of accused behavior that is troubling from to start a sort of ID on that atmosphere of intimidation and fear. You know, there was some accounts of verbal abuse their accounts of sort of, you know, an idea that overall senior leadership it Alan felt, but no, it was a privilege to work there. And anyone who might complain about sort of the emotional atmosphere. Even working conditions could just move on because they couldn't find anyone else who had died of work, Carella It's a much more serious stuff like sensitive people of color on the head from jokes about two African American females being taken for each other because they have the same hairstyle to another employee being sort of shouted down an angry and resentful because she suggested that the entire staff received diversity and inclusion training. You know all this is supported by historians. That's quite serious, especially, I would say in the world we live in, which is a post me to world and if you even look at what's been happening in this country in the past two months There is it's incredibly justifiable demand for a lack of this toxicity and for transparent, clear on how we're all treating each other at work. Not one thing that I found interesting is that there is no specific

Protecting your digital privacy during a protest

"So we've all seen the footage of protesters clashing with police, but beyond the fiscal confrontation police another law enforcement officials are using a lot techniques to monitor and identify protesters. Give me a rundown on what they're doing yet. So police have had tools for a very long time, and they used things like IAMs eye catchers, a more simple name for that would be sting rays which are tools that serve as fake cell phone power. So when you're when you're texting somebody when you're calling somebody, it would connect to them rather than. Than, connecting to whatever service provider that you have, and they would be able to use that to intercept all your calls, and all your text message that you're sending they also have been using tools like Gio fence warrants where they can send requests to police to tech companies, or they can send requests to sell service providers and say we want. Data on all the mobile phones that were in this specific area. Can you please provide that kind of information and Google and companies like t mobile at and t horizon? They have complied with these requests because they're legally obligated to. Other tools include facial recognition that they use to identify people in protests. There was another tool used during protests in Baltimore where they used. A company called Geo Fida with social media surveillance to basically help identify protesters. That were demonstrating again. Police brutality, so you? You actually wrote about Gio. Fence warrants yesterday, and it's an interesting thing. I don't think people really understand. How specific or how narrow is that geographic target that they can get? Can you get them to square block, too? Like a ten square feet patch of land like how specific talking about so these you fence warrants to threat is more about the fact that. They don't have to be specific at all more so versus how specific it can get so a case in Virginia that I had found, they narrowed it down to within the range of like just a bank or the block that a bank was on because they were trying to figure out who was behind this bank robbery, and they didn't have a name they didn't have. Any details about what the person looks like or anything like that, but they. They knew that happened at this bank at this time, so they send us warned request to Google that says we're looking for data on all the phones that was in this area during this hour, but the problem is. Is that with these warrants? You can have it, you know the. The size of entire neighborhood these are this is essentially a dragnet surveillance kind of thing. Where imagined the non tech? Like version of this right? It would basically be cops knocking on every single door, being able to go in and search every single home and say and and seeing you know hey, where you at this bank at this time that kind of thing. That happened in colonial times. I was called a general warrant. And that's part of the reason why we have the fourth amendment now say you need probable cause, and you need a specific reason to search someplace, and that was understood for a very long time with search warrants GIO fence warrants. It seems like you know because the law hasn't really caught up with technology. They're able to just do these widespread searches and gathered data on on. An entire range of people there are so many cases where you know innocent people have had their data swept up by these searches just because they've just happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. Well, and it's not very difficult for police obtained warrants right? It's not difficult at all from what we've seen in other cases so out of Minnesota. The Minnesota public radio did an investigation on this where judges will sign off on this within with like just looking at it for like five ten minutes, or so the another issue with that being that it's hard for to visualize something when you just get the latitude and longitude so these war requests. They don't show they don't show like. Oh, we're looking for something in this area. They'll say something like we're looking for data on devices between the coordinates of negative, one, hundred and ten. Latitude and positive one hundred five launched your. I don't know where that is. That could be in the middle of the ocean for all I know, but. That's the point like you. When you hear something like that, you don't know how large that whole area is. And you kind of just an judges have just signed off on warrants like that well, and you also mentioned in your store today. The DA is now authorized mantra protesters. What are the implications with that? So th Buzzfeed News? Take a memo. I'm from the Justice Department basically signing off or the DA to do covert surveillance, which basically means they're allowed. They have a blank check to basically secretly spy on George Floyd protesters. Now the argument from the Justice Department has been. You know were doing this kind of surveillance to look for riders and members of Antigua and things like that, you know the people that are causing damage during these peaceful protests. Outside of police, and the consequences of the being do blanket surveillance means that you now have the full force of the federal government. Able to do secret surveillance, and that includes things like. Catchers. But not just at the scene of a of what are these? Protests are because they have planes that can fly around and just gathered data on thousands of people. All at once, and you think about the surveillance tools at the NSA

"Moving on to a different topic that but one we have not discussed. I don't think no over on for over thirty five sunless tanner cousin. That was the tide. The subject of the email. This listener writes to us. I just came to the starting realization that there is a crucial part of skin care. We have not dove into yet. Sunless tanners exclamation point times three. I have more time than usual during the self isolation and since I won't be visiting a beach anytime soon. I'm wiping out the self tanners. For a little pep. I would love to hear some wrecks of easy to use an effective self tanners or an inhouse comparison tests. I've had good luck with tart tanner's but I am trying out I'll of paradise and will report back curious to hear what others are using out there. I'm curious to. I'm curious to because I don't use anything like this I don't either and actually I'm incorrect. I believe the title of this email. Referenced Bronze Irs and so it made me think about like what we may be putting on our sheikhs but that in our face but then I believe they're also talking about like all over Sunless Tanning. Yeah. I think they are now. Has Tanning ever been a thing for you later? Channing have you ever like bought the Juergens on okay back in the day. I mean. We're probably talking like DOTS. I feel like everyone was using that. Jergens sunless tanner. I would use it. I felt like it always looks sort of streaky on me So I I was never a huge sunless. Tanner person how about you. I also went through a phase of putting that jerk stuff all over my body but I have never gotten a spray Tan. I've always wanted to but I just have never gotten around to it. I don't even know where to begin to spray tans in my life one I got in the early to mid odds before a friend and I were going on a trip to Atlantic City when I lived in Philadelphia and I loved the Spray Tan like. I thought it was amazing and I was also like Oh. This is what it would be like to be. Tam like this. This is fun. Didn't get another one for probably ten years or so. And then when I was at buzzfeed someone else was doing in article about spray tans and they got like a spray tanner to the stars to come in and they asked if anyone wanted to get a spray tan and I volunteered and it looked so bad. It looks horrendous. Oh my it was way too dark. Okay I looked. I didn't look like myself like I felt like maybe over the years. I have now romanticize this original spray Tan but I felt like what was great about my original Spray Tan. Back in two thousand and four. Was that it. I still like looked like myself and this was just like what has happened. Look Tan mom remember Tan mom. Oh remember Tan mom. I'm like fully up on Tan. Mom what she doing now. I mean she's like releasing songs and occasionally appearing on the Howard Stern show it good for her? She's still so Tan. I believe she is. Okay but yes. I do remember Tan mom yet so that was my last experience and I was just like what no so. We didn't get a spray Tan. Like for your wedding. No I didn't okay. Okay I mean. I know a lot of people do that but I was just like nervous that it wasn't going to turn out well and then you're like stuck. This is my fear. This is why I have never done it and I. I also like for example. I used to wear the steel. Bronze are as like my blush. Even owned blush. That was just what I use it. I really liked it but now I get confused over the way. Bronze is USED TO CONTOUR Like I feel like I feel like the the way we use. Makeup is evolving. And I'm still in like two thousand and four and so I don't quite have a sense of what I would do with it. Like I did. Watch him Kardashians like basic makeup routine video and then I tried to emulate at home and it looked like I tried to make a three on my face with some bronze and looked very stupid. Like I don't St- I'm still not good at countering although maybe I should take Contra Zoom cloud. We didn't. We discussed that. We were going to learn how to contour during yes. I've watched this video and I was like this was like her own doing contour herself. So I thought I could at least figure it out as opposed to a makeup artist. I couldn't I had no idea what was happening. So there you go so anyway this is. This is a spot where we would love some listener feedback. Yeah we would love to tell us. What are you doing this? For Sunless Tanning are you doing? It is still a thing. What do you like? What don't you like tell us because I would. I am totally game to get a bunch of stuff and try it out for the sake of the pod I just. I'm not sure where to begin. So I'm ready okay. Great I'm ready to experiment okay. Story I think you've gotta read this this so I'm happy to I've been reflecting lately on the act of journaling and I think you two are the perfect people to reflect with me on this. When I was a child I used to try to keep a diary as documentation of my life growing up in the nineties with Nickelodeon. I was inspired by the movie. Harriet the spy and wanted to have the dedication that Michelle Trachtenberg character had with her writings however I was never very disciplined by. Diaries were sporadic. And I judge myself harshly for that in my mid twenties. I hit a rough patch in my life and my other wonderful sister. Hope Gifted me a journal to help me work through anxieties. Something clicked and I stopped writing for posterity or documentation. I started writing to get things out of my head. I stop worrying about continuity I would mention people places or events without preamble for my quote audience in fact I began my journals things that I would never even myself read again often because I assumed it would be too painful to revisit them. Journaling has been a great way for me to clear the junk out of my head now that we are in this unique time in history. And I'm expecting my first child that I should be. Writing for an audience has crept in again. I have the urge to think more of my writings as documentation that will be meaningful to someone else at some point. I'm definitely not a dance. Like no one is watching kind of person and this perspective is stifling. Dory I know you've been dabbling with generally more lately and since we're both writers. I'm so curious to hear what you think of on this question of audience for journaling. Do you write for no one like I prefer or for future you for your children or historians. I would love to hear from other listeners as well. Well well who do you? Who Do you write in your journal? Forgery? I think I write for future me I think I do too. I feel like writing for no one. I I kind of doing that. 'cause I'm not really thinking about the intended reader right but ultimately the intended reader is going to be future. Yeah hopeful and I say that as someone who still has kept journals pretty much through through college inconsistently but I have journals through college And I do enjoy a kate like not all the time but like occasionally I have gone back and looked through the journals and it like it is really wild to look through them and read them like re not just read about your your state of mind but like what you were doing and who you're hanging out with and I don't know I like I just find I find it really interesting but I also you know I like history and I like documents and so does obviously find interesting too. Yeah I you know when. My My parents gave me a journal the Christmas while I was living at home when my mom had pancreatic cancer and so I have a journal that kind of starts about three months before my mom died and it is really because that time in my life is so fraught and I don't remember anything from it. It is actually really moving to go back and read it and it's also very hard and miserable but it is really interesting to just see what my state of mind was during that time and I also have kept journals on and off my whole life. I mean I do think you do have to be prepared for if you are no longer around someone else reading it. You know like that is a reality that could happen.

We do not belong to the people who hurt us." | Chanel & Evan

"Evan Rachel Wood and she now Miller are known for delivering searing public testimonies of their personal experiences of sexual assault in two thousand eighteen. Evan Rachel would testify to Congress about her Harrowing Experience. A violent abuse a former partner. She did it to encourage lawmakers to implement the sexual assault survivors bill of rights across the country a couple of years prior Chanel Miller had addressed Stanford student who had sexually assaulted her in court directly. The speech ricocheted around the world. After it was published on Buzzfeed it was read more than eighteen million times on the news outlet and broadcast on CNN and in Congress both testimonies transformed the conversation around sexual assault cases in the US. They Sean a light on how our media an legal systems mistreat misrepresent and mishandled sexual assault survivors in this episode of Dare. I say Chanel and Evan. Rachel would talk about double standards in the Criminal. Justice SYSTEM ABOUT HANDLING TRAUMA ALONGSIDE. Intense public scrutiny. And about the high price that comes with naming your abuser or yourself. Chanel Evan Rachel. Wood are on a quest to make the media the law and society a kinder fair place for survivors of sexual assault. They are women who care. I think one of the scariest parts for me about coming forward with everything was a smear campaign or slander or someone trying to discredit my experience. Because it's very re traumatizing when that happens and I think because of experience while the abuse was happening in the press was so traumatic and no one knew I was being abused but they were calling me a whore and they were calling me crazy and they were calling me names before I'd even said anything and migrate is fear was when I said something all of that was going to repeat itself. I was really scared. I blamed myself because I was misbehaving quote unquote. Because I was doing things I wasn't supposed to. I was inappropriate. I was this I was that but none of that means that I deserved what happened to me and so I think it's important to say I'm not a perfect person. I haven't been a perfect person but no one has been but I know what happened to me and I'm very clear about that and very clear that it wasn't my fault and I'm very still scared to talk about it but I know that it's important because of this idea that you have to be this perfect being. That's never done anything wrong for anybody to take you seriously. Yeah I hate that. Credibility is never a given that it seems like it has to be earned that in order to earn a to prove that we can be level headed and obedient that we can maintain an even temperament even when we have every right to be angry for me throughout the court process. You doing stand up comedy to keep myself alive but I worried that if that got back to the courtroom they could use that against me to say. Look at her experiencing. How can a suffering person beginning up and immersing herself in laughter? That's extremely said to me that we have this expectation of how we must behave that looking like a victim has its own identity in another stunning thing is that. I was able to hide this for the last four and a half years so many of us are master's of concealing are stories much of the time being a victim means appearing completely ordinary. Were so good at pretending like nothing is happening like we can keep moving and functioning without missing a beat. I think every victim as soon as this happens you find ways to assign yourself blame. You can say I was drinking. It was my clothing. I was wearing a t shirt of his favorite band which might have been enticing in. We string them up on a little mobile and we sit beneath them and we watch it and we let it consume US and road us and meanwhile we don't assign blame to the source. We keep saying or assuming that you should be reacting a certain way even after an assault people think they would react differently in that situation or they don't understand why you wouldn't call somebody right away or why you wouldn't do you know in my case. The statue of limitations had run on my case I. I didn't report in time and a lot of people are very confused by how that could possibly be. You should go to the police right away but people just don't understand the process that you have to go through the fear that you have to go through the trauma that you have to work through. You know a lot of the times after a bodily violation victims may turn to toxic sex or drinking even more. Because you already feel like you've been deemed worthless or you feel like there are things inside you that you cannot tolerate in the only answer is to vanquish them or to punish yourself or to obliterate them in any way that you can and it's infuriating that we use that behavior as further proof that this is why she deserved it. We point to it and say we'll see. This is the kind of girl who happens to when really the root of it is. The violence itself is not her. Flaws is not her misguided judgment. It's the violence that prompts this behavior and we have to acknowledge that both Chanel and Evan Rachel. Wood are committed to using their platform in privilege to fight for the rights of sexual assault survivors. Snell's memoir was published in the fall. It advocates for more sympathetic response to cases of sexual violence. Evan Rachel Wood has just wrapped up a you. Long fights improve the sexual assault law in California. Thanks to her campaign. The state has officially extended the state statute of limitations on domestic violence cases survivors. Now have a five year window to report abuse to the police. This law is called the Phoenix Act after the mythical animal that rises from the ashes of its predecessor.

Digital ads are disappearing, seriously denting revenue for Big Tech

Digital ads are disappearing, seriously denting revenue for Big Tech

"Advertising is the lifeblood of the Internet and it's drying up fast digital media sites are off employees some have closed shop for good twitter and Pinterest have pulled their guidance for the next quarter. Facebook has said that. Although it's traffic is way up it's revenue will not be way up because advertising just isn't happening and even Google is slowing down hiring which for many in silicon valley is a sign that the slump is really real. Sarah Fisher is a media reporter for axios. I asked her how bad the drop off in digital advertising looks for the tech industry so the biggest names in tak would be companies like Google and facebook that make the majority of their money on digital advertising. But they haven't come out and given exact estimates however we've talked to some analysts and they have given US estimates and you're looking at total of roughly forty billion dollars of revenue loss between Google and facebook alone a few more million from some of the smaller tech companies like twitter snapchat and so what are the downstream impacts of that. I mean we know that facebook and Google make up something like two-thirds of the digital advertising landscape. If they are in trouble it must be Armageddon for every other online publisher or website. Right totally will be advertising as an industry tends to grow at the same rate as the GDP and our economy's doing pretty well but now with the corona virus pandemic what analysts are predicting is that digital advertising revenue is still going to grow slightly. This year in total digital advertising was supposed to grow twelve percent this year. Now we're only expecting it to grow about four percent and there are three big categories. That are going to be really hit. One is search the other social media ads which is the way that facebook makes most of its money and those ads tend to be heavily dependent on video. What do you think that that four percent growth spend looks like is it a case where all that money is going to go to the incumbents to facebook and Google for example? Y- probably even though facebook and Google are expected to take the brunt of the losses. They're still gonNA come out far better than a lot of the publisher specific deals if you're a digital website. You're going to be heavily impacted by this downturn for a couple of reasons. One A lot of publishers. Don't just sell ads for things like hey we're a great company. Where a great brand? They sell ads to push products. I think about buzzfeed cells affiliate marketing which are like adds to help. You sell things on Amazon now. Amazon's said that they're cutting all of that spend and so. I would expect any digital publisher whether you're a smaller digital media company or if you are a smaller tech company to be heavily impacted by this yeah. Let's talk about that affiliate program because that is sort of hard to understand but a super big deal for a lot of sites across the Internet. That really have built a business model on the idea that if you send traffic to a retailer whether it's Amazon or even best buy you will get a kickback. And you can build a business that way I mean. Is that like over for the foreseeable future? We've talked to sources who say it's not over for the foreseeable future. That AMAZON IS PULLING BACK TEMPORARILY. And that they do intend to ramp these relationships back up host endemic or later point in the pandemic. The problem here is that no one knows when this thing is going to end and so for publishers that relied on revenue monthly. If you get pulled out from you now you have no idea when it's coming back which is a really scary thing. A Lotta publishers relied on that sort of affiliate ECOMMERCE added revenue for large percentages of their overall revenue. For some up to twenty five percent. How does this compare to advertising writ large the digital drop that still will see growth? Which kinda surprising. How does that compare to the rest of the industry? Oh it's great. I mean if you take a look at what's expected to happen television or Radio. That is going to be devastating. We expected to see a seventeen percent drop in print ads this year. That's down to twenty five percent post pandemic. We were expecting national television to go down around three percent now. We're expecting it to go down. Thirteen percent similar types of things with radio and of course out of home which includes things like billboards and subway posters. Out of home was one of the most fast growing non digital advertising mediums. Billboards were becoming digital more. People are getting out of the house. It was actually a great way to market but now the people are stuck inside. We were expecting billboard industry to grow about four percent. Now we're expecting it to go down about twelve percent by the end of the year. So what does this mean for digital business models like all of the digital media sites that we've seen having layoffs just in the last week or two And even ad-supported APPS or other services like is this a reset. Well say this. There's a difference between what we're seeing now versus what we saw during the last financial crisis in two thousand eight and two thousand nine. The last financial crisis we are recovery was like a very shallow you which meant that we kind of slowly hit it until one day it was really bad and then we slowly recovered. The one upside here is that analysts. Expect this to be a steeper you recovery. Meaning that were expected to pull back pretty quickly. Once things open up again. Remember the difference between this recession. The last one is that we have severe impacts up front. We dropped very quickly because we put everyone in an at home. We didn't do that in house recession. And so we're expecting things to ramp up much more quickly. Once we physically open things up but I think the long term impacts are this. A lot of these companies are going to drop out entirely. You saw the digital website called the outline that just shut down. A lot of these websites aren't going to shut down entirely. But they're not gonNA come back in the same form. They will have already laid off dozens of employees. They're not going to be able to ramp up that quickly. And what you should expect to see. Is that different types of coverage will get cut. Different products will get cut and to the media. Landscape we were used to is not going to be the same when we get back. Sir Fisher is a media reporter for axios companies that rely on digital advertising. Say It's not just the volume of ADS. That's way down. It's also the pricing. There's more inventory. So companies are forced to sell ads for a lot less which also hurts revenue. I The company that owns match group and other ad-supported businesses said earlier this month. That ad rates are down about thirty

"Way to support what we do. You're listening to shortwave from. Npr Brandon. Taylor was the kind of Kid who kept a rock journal and I grew up on a farm and so I would keep very detailed notes about my grandpa's like chickens that he was breeding I mean if this kid wasn't destined for a career in science. I don't know who some people go to college. And they're like what is my major. I never wavered The the biggest change in my life was deciding that I would instead of being a neurosurgeon. Studied Niro Chemistry like that was like the big gene wilder. I walked on the wild side so like for me my entire life. I thought I was going to be a scientist but today brandon is not a scientist. He's a writer. His debut novel real life came out this year and it was a big hit got written up in the New York Times magazine. So it's safe to say things are going well for him but Brennan says walking away from science was like walking away from religion science. Is this incredible amazing way of knowing the world knowing the universe unknowing meaning and in some ways? It's it's a Kenta faith in that way and it's also incredibly painful and fraud and difficult and so it is also a ken to faith and that Leaving Science was for me. It was a ken to burning down my life and trying to find a new world view because that is the thing that I built my entire life around. I didn't experience a single moment of doubt looking around the world right now. It's never been more important to have all kinds of good people in science and that's why we should listen to stories like Brandon's so today in the show. How years of being made to feel like he didn't belong forced brandon to make the tough choice to leave science. And why? That's not just a loss for brandon but for science itself. I'M MAT ISA fire. And this is shortwave. The daily science podcast from NPR. So Brandon Taylor wrote about why? He left science in an essay for Buzzfeed. It's a story that starts at the University of Wisconsin Madison where he went to study biochemistry. I got there in two thousand thirteen and I think from I mean from right away. It was again unhealthy situation Brandon was in his early twenties gay man and out of ninety or so students in his graduate program. He was the only black person I was staying with Three undergraduate boys and one of them kept using racial slurs with his best white friends. And in this like very casual way But then I also would be walking home at night and The the white boys on the on the sidewalks would also say the N. Word and they would like push me and say racial lights things so okay. That was in town. Science was supposed to be a refuge from all of that.

‘We’re in a Petri Dish’: How a Coronavirus Ravaged a Cruise Ship

"When passengers of a luxury ship were quarantined in their rooms after one person tested positive with the coronavirus it may have seemed like a good idea yeah as the days went on dozens and then hundreds became infected with code nineteen the largest outbreak site outside of China was on board that ill fated ship docked in Japan now two passengers are dead the closed environment of the diamond princess as our next guest was essentially a Petri dish Dan rigano is a science writer for buzzfeed news and he joins me now welcome hi the bigger cruise ships as you wrote are notorious for spreading illnesses I have to start by asking our epidemiologists really surprised that after two weeks more than six hundred people have been infected on one ship alone the people we spoke to study this sort of thing the past aren't surprised at all and it's sort of cute on the question of how does this virus behave and now it's becoming apparent or it seems apparently have to be very careful right that it's more like the flu like influence a where airborne transmission earlier in an infection during sneezing rather than coughing stage seems to be a factor here that brings the play the question of how the ship was ventilated and now airborne transmission in general well let's talk about the ventilation system so are the people who study this and one of surprises here was it actually been a lot of research looking this question say that ventilation systems on cruise ships aren't any good at stopping airborne diseases from spreading that there been studies of flu where you have in a week's time you know one patient infecting forty people and likewise the air filter simply aren't designed to screen viruses after awhile the whole system gets gummed up with it and to speaking sneezing coughing in your ward room that gets picked up by their system you know and and it doesn't get filtered out maybe gets passed on in the past that's what happened in lysis cruise ship had some kind of impossible have ventilation system that was going on but it just seems that people knew about what happens on board ships and so it might not have been the best thing to keep well there that what your criteria is clear the Japanese government's goal was to keep this thing bottled up on a ship right there you have all these people there are two thousand six under sixty six passengers and another thousand crew there on the ship but they're not in Japan right and so if you just pull them off one by one as they get sick and put them in the hospital that's better than dumping three thousand some people who are potentially signature pan at once but actually contaminating an entire island which likely was there thinking well I've spoken to have speculated so like this was a way to keep the thing contained on the ship more than a way to to treat the patients although of course they treated them you know they were they were getting checked in that sort of thing so with the benefit of hindsight what should have officials in Japan done when a ship with more than thirty seven hundred crew and passengers anchored there with the crown of ours is a concern the consensus seems to be they should have bitten the bullet found places to put these people up like they've done in Singapore where they have them in university dorms separate from each other the air flow should have been cut off from central air initiative use fresh air pumped into individual rooms turn on space heaters to keep them warm and you know don't intermix on a giant container bunch of sick people well people and expected to turn out well mmhm with air travel and there is still largely free movement of people do you see the widespread outbreak of cover nineteen is inevitable most of the experts I talked to seasonable they think that this is gonna end up being one of them and Democrata viruses that too many has to deal with the question is how soon does that happen and it seems like it's coming closer right now with what's going on and South Korea and Iran and elsewhere where we have cases that look are looking more and more like community based ones rather than travel related that's the big worry in the nice thing about the diamond princess people as we know who they are and we can watch them the cases where we we can't do that I mean those the ones that are real worry

And and we're just GonNa all go out and we'll hash it out and by the end of the day we should have. That would be real tough immigration though. Never mind that's probably not probably not a good idea. You talked to definitely were in some of those talks. What why didn't you guys make one of those deals? I mean we were never in a position where he felt like we had to make could be l.. Summit what I was saying in that interview. was that smaller players in the digital space Would probably really need to do a deal in part because I looked at this space in it felt like it was bifurcating to influence or type content creators who can build pretty decent decent businesses several hundred thousand to several million dollars a year with like one person or a small team and they had a lot of advantages advantages that big media companies don't have lower cost structure less rules and constraints in the kind of content. They could make in some cases is and they were there providing a lot of the content of the big platforms and so they are a huge force. And so I was looking at those kinds of companies and then I was looking looking at companies like like busby which is a several hundred million revenue and and the ability to build out all these diversified revenue sources is and generate more revenue for the content. We're creating because we have all these teams it infrastructures and support and it just felt like there were a lot of companies that were in the middle where they it didn't have the leanness of the influencers to be able to operate a more efficiently but they also didn't have the ability to bring in enough enough of the talent and business and things like that and so it felt like those those companies were in a position where they needed to needed to to merge and what about the bigger companies my employer of ice spot refinery. Maybe somewhere in the middle of the discussion we're having but the bigger your your company bigger companies merging urging as well. I don't think that there is as pressing a need. I think for the mid size companies that makes a lot of sense to join a bigger company the bigger the bigger digital digitally native companies I think Fox's at scale and can operate effectively buzzfeed's Swedes at at scale. There's a few you know a bigger companies that that that can do that. It could make sense for some of them to it could be. It could be make they could they could. You could see bigger combinations. That could make sense. But I don't think there's there's an urgency for it last question you said Ed in this memo that you WanNa buy a company called meet up. This is one of the many companies that we work bod and is now furiously trying to sell off and this is part of a strategy. You had paid social. Why did you meet up? And what does paid social. Look like for buzzfeed. I mean I had a vision for how meet up could be part of buzzfeed that I I was really excited about which was. Essentially we've been seeing more and more that our content is inspiring action in the world and whether it's transactions and our commerce business or or just people going on trips or trying things joining communities finding in discovering new phantoms. We see content really driving action and I thought that meet up could be another way to have something downstream from out where when people get excited engage with our content. They then connect with meet with people in the real world so that we could integrate an interesting way that would drive a lot of value this concept of paid social that in some ways it's counter to the current trend trend which is all the social platforms are free and available to everyone and then all the content companies are focused on paid and subscription models. uh-huh and what if you reverse that and you had a layer of content that was free across all platforms on the internet which is speeds approach. Cure all the best of the Internet. And then you combine that with paid aid social where you don't have two billion people on the platform you have a couple of hundred thousand here a million there and the consumers paying I wanNA pay. HBO With Like Minded People. People who share interests that I have so it would meet up. Meet up organizers pet you know pay a fee to be subscription to be able to bring people together. I think you're going to start to see more niche social things. People aren't just paying for content. They're paying to be in an in a social environment with like minded people without the harassment without all their data. Bean suck for advertising without some of the some of the negative things so niche communities and paid communities is an area that we're exploring and starting to think about and meet up could've accelerated it but I think there's other ways to to to build interest teen alternatives to the social networks that are smaller and more niche that could and and also provide new lines of revenue. Thanks again to join a party for sitting down with me. Thanks again to the folks at digital content next for hosting us. This is Rico media. I will see you next week..

"As journalists. You cannot get just right? I have to get it. All I get every single. Syllable. Correct. And this case I did not that I wrote that it was an explicit instruction. When in fact, the evidence now shows that it was not explicit. I'm Benjamin witness. And this is the law fair podcast April thirtieth two thousand nineteen on January seventeenth of this year. Buzzfeed news reported a blockbuster. The headline reads President Trump directed. His attorney Michael Cohen to lie to congress about the Moscow tower project. It was a remarkable story and within twenty four hours of its publication. The special counsel's office had issued an unprecedented statement taking issue with it, and describing unspecified components of it as quote inaccurate, unquote. It wasn't clear at the time. What parts of the story were inaccurate? And how much of it was true. But in light of the actual Muller report. We can now identify the parts of the story that had problems and the parts that did not the two reporters who wrote the story Anthony cormier. A and Jason Leopold joined me yesterday to do a kind of after action report on the story. How did they come to report what they report what parts of the story? Do they stand by what parts do they think they messed up on? How was the story sourced? And what does the discrepancy between the story and the Muller report tell us about the conduct of Donald Trump? It's the law. Fair podcast episode four hundred thirteen a BuzzFeed after action report with Leopold and cormier. All right before we talk about and do the kind of after action report on your guys story about Trump directing Michael Cohen to lie to congress. I wanna start actually much earlier, which is with some of the other stories that you guys have reported on the Trump Russia stuff because I. I think people tend to look at the story in a kind of vacuum. And I wanna situate it in the context of a much broader range of reporting that you guys did. So I which ever of you wants to take this a try let's start with a kind of overview of the work that you had done prior to January seventeenth two thousand nineteen. So, you know, we started covering the Trump administration really from the first offer stays at BuzzFeed news and both started. I started early January Jason shortly after that. And the editor asked us pretty simply to figure out what happened in twenty sixteen who are these characters involved what were their potential roles in twenty sixteen. What were they doing before that we started? I started personally to look Michael Cohen some of his own dubious business ceilings before he acts. We reached the Trump organization. Our job was never to really examine the dossier. But we knew the Toan in. This case was was a big part of that knew that he must have played some kind of role in twenty sixteen and began to look at what he had done. We were very fortunate to work with some pretty incredible sources who who gave us insight into not just Mr. Cohen. But eventually a number of entities, it surrounded Trump and his campaign in particular able to glean insight into their finances..

"You know, I think we were very confident in our in our in this in this reporting because I worry about buzzfeed's brand as a whole this story is wrong. Buzzfeed news as a whole is in trouble. I appreciate your concern. We wouldn't are you. Aren't you concerned about that? You know, we're confident in the story. And we're and we are looking, and I think that we also do think that while there is right now and understandably focus on the media story and on the process story. The important story here is about the relationship between the Trump administration and Russia. I agree with. Our reporting has been central to that. And we'll continue to is it. Let's forget the cameras are on this. What really happened is it that Trump said to Cohen take care of me. Don't screw me. Is it is it mob talk. Is that what happened here? We'll get. There wasn't directing him to lie. It was telling them. Don't screw this up. Michael g you have I mean, mean. that's what I'm wondering. Because we'll take you guys. Tell me is that what actually happened? We don't know. We're trying we're we're trying to get the exact language that was used in this conversation. We will get there. One day. We continue to report like mad as we always do. But but but what we reported that the president United States directed. Michael Cohen to sit to lie to congress is accurate that that is fundamentally accurate. We're going to get inside the room where it happened and bear it out what we've taken this to ground here. We're going to go even further to get inside that we are you fed up. Ben the Muller investigations taking this long, and we don't have answers to these questions. No. I think I mean, I think that I understand Muller's. I mean, I understand the amount of stress and pressure. They are under and we certainly are not trying to write the mother report. We are not trying to project inside his head inside his offices head. We are writing about the evidence. And what our sources have told us about the. But I think you know, we, it's it's difficult. I think in this media environment. And you know, I say this is somebody who came up in this environment is very much part of it. Yeah. It just say, we don't know everything we we know we know we know we know as accurate the words that you were talking about before that you were speculating what he might have said, what are you might have said, you know, there is a transcript you don't have it. And we don't have it the and we in every reporter in the country is chasing it right now. And I think that you know, that we are confident that our reporting is going to bear out. But it's, but I also understand that, you know, we're, you know, you're on television twenty four hours a day or on the internet twenty four hours a day. It is hard to say, which from others report, wait for more reporting. But I think that is obviously what we're all doing Anthony. Is there anything I'm leaving out anything? I haven't asked you. That's the best reporter question, right? That's what you know. We're really appreciate you having us on. I mean, we're we're we're here to talk about our work. And I'm glad to do it. You know, it's been two years. We've broken some of the biggest parts of this story. And and again, I I'd like to go back to the fundamental part of it during the heat of a presidential campaign. A candidate said he had no business dealings with Russia later turns out that he did his attorney goes to congress and said these negotiations ended in January we were the first to report that well, no actually that hampered and then in June now this morning Rudy Giuliani's making even more news. He saying, well, maybe it wasn't June. Now, it's November the core of this story is the president of the United States as a business deal that he and the people around him wanted to keep quiet from the American public. That's that's where we're warning. And we're we're going to go ahead and for viewers in the United States that interview is going to Riera and forty minutes. You can watch it here on CNN, I greatly. Appreciate both of you being here and being transparent. Thanks, man..

"Starting late last night and continuing into now, we have been unpacking. The story published by BuzzFeed news reporting that the president directed is attorney Michael Cohen to lie to congress about the Trump Tower Moscow project and reporting that the special counsel learned this both from Cohen, but also from other witnesses and from other documents then suddenly late tonight. The special counsel's office issued a statement disputing at least the part of the story that has to do with the special counsel molars office saying in this again, rare statement tonight that buzzfeed's quote description of specific statements to the special counsel's office and characterization of documents and testimony obtained by this office regarding Michael Collins, congressional testimony are not accurate description of specific statements scripture of specific statements characterization of documents and testimony obtained by the office. Tonight. Buzzfeed says they stand by their reporting, and they say they are urging the special counsel to make clear exactly what his office is disputing here. Joining us now is Chuck Rosenberg former US attorney in the eastern district of Regina, former senior FBI in Justice department official Mr. Rosenberg it is great to have you with us tonight. Thank you for making time on my pleasure. Thank you for having me. So let me just I want you to tell me what you think is important about this, your your your feelings about the reporting in the first instance. But also the statement from the special counsel's office about it. You know, there's an aspect of five year old soccer to this. If you ever watched kids play the all sort of mass together every now and then the ball squirts loose, and then they run over to the ball together. We did that with respect to the BuzzFeed story, and I fear we're doing that. Now with respect to the Muller statement..

"But right now it is hard to discern. Based on the statement. I wanna put up the DeWitt the BuzzFeed statement that they have no put out can we let's put that up on the screen because I think for for people who are just joining this is a statement now that BuzzFeed has said in the wake of the statement of from molars office. Buzzfeed says we are we are continuing to report and determine what the special counsel is disputing. We remain confident in the accuracy of our report. This is a problem. This is a big deal and a problem for BuzzFeed when I was United States attorney we used to debate this issue, not commonly, but not infrequently. And that is when a report comes out in some newspaper, or in some media outlet that has a lot of things. Correct. But it has a few things incorrect like who is the object of scrutiny or. Documents. We have mischaracterized things in a certain way. Usually our plan was to keep our mouths shut because you can do more harm by talking than not talking. Sometimes it was agreed enough. You felt like you had to make some statement kind of like what Peter car did here. The problem is you don't want to go. An edit their peace and say, we'll among these fifteen facts. Yes. Because then you become their editor. And then you become sort of a party to letting them know secret, confidential information. So I think it's fine and proper what special counsel's office did. And they had to do it. And it must have been extraordinarily difficult thing to decide to do it. And as we said it took them twenty four hour twenty hours to do it. But they're not going to get answers. Buzzfeed is not going to get answers from them telling them what little things you got wrong, and what you didn't get wrong, which leaves BuzzFeed in a very bad situation. And and press outlets sometimes face that if they don't get everything, right? And the prosecutor speaks in this way. And then retreats reactive just from a reporting standpoint explain for people out there. What happens now too? For those BuzzFeed reporters for buzzed. Are they they go back to the people? They talked to they tried to. I mean, just speaking generally people will go back to their sources and try to reestablish trails. And look at what they have. And what they don't have. And Ben Smith is the editor in chief of BuzzFeed is a very smart aggressive reporter. And I'm sure that he has his reporters doing that one thing that I think is really important that I didn't mention before in the course of the reporting of this the challenge that everyone has had in terms of reporting this story Michael Cohen has pleaded guilty to lying before congress. And this is something that you have the Trump team say all the time is Michael Collins Aligarh microphones layer. And they use it to go to they're no wrong. They used to his credibility. But he has he has acknowledged that. Whereas the White House has a massive credibility problem. And this is why when you have it is very what else as far as I know have not have knowledge that they have lied about anything harassed, and I think that that is they have acknowledged sometimes errors. But that very infrequently. And so this is why when I had a lot of people around the White House and around the president saying. To me today. You know, why is everyone not just you know, why why why why do they have to why why does the Trump team have to give a response? Well, because people are not going to just assume that because the president's folks say, we're not going to dignify this that that you know, suggests that therefore there is something wrong with the BuzzFeed reporting. There is a cost to constantly saying things that aren't true..

"Hey, I'm Alex Laughlin in here three stories you need to know about today. The Puerto Rican government has finally acknowledged that more than fourteen hundred people died in hurricane. Maria. Last year they're official number is sixty four. The figure was included in a four hundred page draft report to congress called transformation and innovation in the wake of devastation under a section related to hurricane damage, but Puerto Rico hasn't updated its official death toll yet. The government said, it's waiting on the findings of George Washington University investigation. I even though families and funeral directors in at least two towns told BuzzFeed news that dozens of deaths were being excluded. In the government's tally, the printer can government clung to its official death toll of sixty four BuzzFeed news also found that nine hundred eleven possible hurricane victims were cremated without the government's permission and without being examined to see if their death was caused by the storm. Still during a visit to the island President. Donald Trump used the relatively low official death toll, which was sixteen at the time as a measure of how Puerto Rico had not experienced a quote real catastrophe like New Orleans did after Hurricane Katrina. Puerto Rican governor Ricardo Rossello administration has defended its low official death toll as accurate for months. And this new report doesn't explain the disparity between the numbers. George Washington University's report is due to be published next month. This week is the first anniversary of the unite the right rally in Charlottesville, Virginia. It was a gathering of neo-nazis in white supremacists that left one counter protester dead. The city of Charlottesville has denied permits for Serie protests, but interim city manager. Mike Murphy warned the public to expect a heavy police presence and road closures downtown. There are also several events protesting racism planned around the city, Virginia governor. Ralph north has already declared a state of emergency in preparation and the Virginia national guard will also be authorized to assist unite the right organizer. Jason Kessler managed to get a permit for a rally in Washington DC on Sunday morning counter protesters will also be there officials from around the DC area are preparing to deter potential violence by keeping the two groups separated as much as possible. BuzzFeed news will be covering this heavily. So keep an eye on BuzzFeed news dot com.
