I'm not. I'm not a good mimic Okay so it is right now. Seven forty one. In the morning as i am speaking on thursday the masters is on. It is the beginning of masters week. The masters has been some of the times have been delayed as much as ten minutes. Michael you think we're going to weather delay already right. Did you think this is going to be intermittent throughout the day. You don't have great hope for them. Finishing the first round. It seems like it's impossible with with with when sunset is but that's just me so we'll figure this out as time goes on we will go to barry's lugo when it is accommodating to bury who's down at the masters right now and we will talk about the masters with him. There's a couple of small things that i wanted to talk about at the beginning of the show before i got into what i consider the real open one is and this is local for us. There's a young woman in washington dc. Who goes to saint. John's high school which about six seven blocks from where i live and her name is as as maybe pronounced easy. I don't know. I've never heard it so i don't know her. Last name is fudd. Fud her dad. I believe his name is tim. Fudd records family. I don't think it's the fudd ruckers. Now tim eleanor his name. Not even elmer fudd and he was a basketball player. American university her mom is a woman named katie smirk duffy and she was a basketball player at georgetown and they were both good players. And this young woman. I would call her a girl at my age. She's eighteen years old. She's the number one recruit in the country and she just signed on with yukon. She just made an announcement. Yes i'm a. Which is your choices are fairly limited. You know you can go to south carolina you can go to notre dame you can go to. Duke could stay local. You know you could stay local and go to georgetown like her mom or maryland. Maryland has won the national championship. But the best year in year out the dominating program over the last fifteen years and took it away from tennessee's yukon. So we wish her luck. And if you're if you're that high recruit you're gonna make the starting five remember us to the number one used to have basically two all star teams. Yeah yeah she's the number one recruit in the country now. She's not that big. She's in the five foot range. She's not in the six foot range. It's fun to see what saint john's women's basketball has become over. The last couple of years is are they always be exiting because of somebody else. I think it's a lot of actors. I think it's a commitment by the school. I if you look at their mission and some of the money that's been poured into the school board well through under armor. Yeah yeah yeah yeah. Yeah i'm i'm confused. You line dr harvey stinger. Were you not able to go down there. Make a pitch for binghamton. We were not know but more importantly and we may get to this later. I'm going to buy two seats. I'm going to buy seats to a game where i get my picture up there. Michael michael liz. And the boys and i'll buy five seats. Figure it out and you know the question is what do i want you wearing in the pictures. No but i can add something to it. Unlike the coaches tracksuit a bunch of college football games the board canceled. This is because this is because of corona virus. Look college football is not the nfl. The nfl has a single coherent policy on the virus that affects all teams in the same way and the nfl is going to push through if it can and the difference is the players there they make money. They assume the inherent risk in this. They're on board as well not the college. Football players aren't on board but stiffen. They're not being paid and in college each conference just sort of like the united states of america. You know where. There's no one single coherent policy not yet. Anyway that governor make policies and mayors make policies and some guy across the street makes a policy and this is what happens in college. they're different protocols. Depending on your conference your state and your city. It's just different cow. University california has a much stricter set of protocols from from berkeley. Actually from the city of berkeley california where kelly is then. Then you know other schools in the conference. Have you gotta get used to this. This is what's going to happen. In hindsight the pac twelve and big ten should have started earlier. Everybody should have started earlier. They should have taken the science that was being offered to them by faculty and other saying look you better off doing it earlier than doing it later when we expect another wave which is obviously happened even earlier than people thought so. I'm going to get off that soapbox now and i'm gonna tell people i have talked before about jesse getting rabbits two days ago. Today's thursday so maybe three days ago. Maybe monday monday or tuesday. I don't know which day i come back from the morning. Walk tuesday come back from the morning. Walk with the dog so now it's about six thirty in the morning. It's already light in the sky at that point and i go through the backyard and take the dog's leash off and the dog. The dog's ears go up on. No she's not going to get another rabbit. no. I'm so tired of putting dead rabbits in plastic bags in the garbage. I'm just so tired of that. And she goes over to the bush area and nothing really happens and then she comes back and she walks halfway to me. And i'm going to walk from the backyard to the front yard. When all of a sudden she takes off right behind the bushes the forsythias bush. Now i got a dog. That goes from zero to max in about a second and a half you know. She's not the fastest dog in the world. But she's at top speed faster than other dogs and she's at top speed and what is happening because she's behind the bushes and then i hear a rustling and i go it's a rabbit and something darts by me and it is definitely not a rabbit because it's about three feet long and it's got an auburn silky tale. It's a fox. I don't know what it's doing in my yard. Maybe it's eating the rabbits but it is a fox and fox's are fast not as fast as jesse but fast enough in this case because it had a small headstart. It goes towards the fence between our house in the little house. There's a fence and at the point in which the fox jumps. That fence is about three and a half to four feet high right my standard wire metal fence three and a half to four feet. High rabbits can't jump. Rabbits try to burrow. They try to get under chessy. Eats the rabbits. This fox jumped and landed on the top of the fence and was able to push off into little house and run away chessy leap for the tail of the fox. Mookie betts situation going to try and she was. Yeah go over the wall. Bring it back from over the war. That's going to bite the tail now. I am so happy that the dog did not succeed in this because a fox is not a rabbit. rabbit dies quickly and quietly and submissively in fox's are cats. They're ready to rock. That would have been a fight to the end. And i don't know i don't think the fox is as tough as a raccoon but i think fox is plenty tough so i'm very happy that jesse did not bring that fox back very happy and terrified that we have now fox's in the yard which is not something i want. Don't want fox's so that's my story on that you're looking at me. Quizzically the neighborhoods changing. I we had to deal with rabbits and now foster moving in and the bigger question for me in the back behind the forsythias. When does the armadillo come in. But that's what you have to leave out into the armadillo values just plummeted behind the forsythias and that fell down maybe in the hr or years thereafter you left the stump for many years. It's still and i'm wondering if there is a if there is a fox. Dan underneath that if they burrowed into the underside of that old stuff. Wouldn't i have seen fox's before midnight if they're doing their job right. Yeah okay one other eight note you go ahead and jump over the fence towards the little house. Your apps he did he go into little house is he. Does he have no.
"c. fox" Discussed on Today, Explained
"Okay take cable. News is bad for your brain. They gotta fill twenty four hours a day and we found out the hard way what that means when you've got a president who says reckless stuff just about twenty four hours a day but something strange has been happening in the past few days on the american cable news networks. They have been cutting away from the guy who allies. We're gonna talk about the significance of that. Today's show but we're going to start with a look at how they handled election week. Because if you were watching as our guest erik from the washington post was it wasn't possible to miss just how much power the cable news. Networks have over our democracy. Well they certainly have power over emotion stand by. We have a key race alert right now. New numbers have just come in where we begin with the cnn key race alert key race alert. You may be exaggerating just a little bit. Because of course they're not county board of elections but since the county board of elections are so slow in county and certifying votes the networks historically has stepped in to make these calls on raises. Once they feel they have sufficient data. It's official now. Nbc projects florida goes to president donald trump and they spend months and months and months. Modeling turnout and results for swing states. And that's basically why we tune into the networks on election. Night is to see how those swing states are going. It's really really kind of a unique part of united states media because nobody else really does it. The networks have kind of a monopoly on this situation where they model everything out and they forecast and then they make calls as my colleague. Andrew roco told me on friday. When vox and it's election partner. Decision desk called by the winter calling. These races is more of an art than a science program is right that it's more of an art than science. If it were a science everybody would be out there with their programs and they'd be doing it on their own computer reaching their own conclusions. But you see the way. It's sorta bifurcated now. The ap and fox news have their own little partnership and that partnership is with the university of chicago. They do all these surveys. Like one hundred and forty thousand surveys across all the states. Abc nbc cbs and cnn. Have something else which is called the national election pool which relies heavily on exit polls and done in coordination with edison research. And they get really a lot of the data from these partnerships and once. The data comes flowing in when one candidate no longer has a path to election. They call it for the other one. They do wait things differently. And that's where the art versus the science comes in There's no uniform widely accepted formula for figuring out. Who's going to win wisconsin. But it really is heavily quantitative. You can't just wing it. Has the networks ever gotten it wrong. Has anyone ever called the wrong state for the wrong candidate will. Yes i mean back in two thousand and by standby cnn right. Now is moving our earlier declaration of florida back to the too close to call column the two thousand recount and the fiasco on election night services the entire point of reference for where we are now that was a complete fiasco because they called florida. That uncalled florida and then head. Nobody had any idea where florida was. And so they brought all the heads of the networks up on capitol hill since nineteen ninety when the first joint polling projection effort began. We've been involved in nearly nine hundred elections around the nation the methods that we use to project winners in those racists have only been wrong once before in other words. We've been right ninety nine point eight percent at the time. Unfortunately when you make a mistake is glaring this calling for the winter in florida. The number of times you've been rights seems less relevant. Another big failure of course was the sixteen exit polling and the regulation polling which made people feel less comfortable in their assumptions and in their data and in the degree to which they understood the electorate. Now we had a huge polling problem. This year is well. Where many of the swing states way off beyond the margin of error. So i mean there have been a lot of failures so i think over time. These network producers have become more humble about the ability of these experts to sort of figure out what the country is. Thank the one. Cnn did make the call. On saturday morning it seemed like the whole world fell in line almost within twenty minutes. It was right. Msnbc biden is being called fox news. The fox news decision desk ken. Now project that former vice president joe biden will win pennsylvania and nevada new york times honking in the streets. Champagne sold out in washington. Dc it was eerie to me. It wasn't that eerie to you. I mean they're like oh well. We all reach the same conclusion. It exactly even save time. That's just bullshit right. Yeah i mean you would have to suppose that. They all shared the model right. They all shared the model and that they all reach the same conclusion at the same time to me. It was like oh man. This is not a good look right like if this were really independent you would have cnn. Like calling it on saturday. Eleven and then maybe nbc. Would we see seven pm that evening or something and one or two of them would still be stragglers out there right now but no. It's all over. Twenty minutes that to me is struck me as really like oh man you know. This really is a mirage. This is the third mirage of the redmi is the blue eyes and then the network and it might not be helping matters as the outgoing guy is doing everything he can to make. Americans doubt the veracity of these election calls. I think you're onto something here. This is really an idiosyncratic part of the way we run our country that that works are sitting there with this process that everybody hangs on and we don't have really an analog to in other parts of our civic life we're we're so much trust and confidence is being placed in the ability of these networks to figure out before the county certified their vote. What's going to happen. And i think that the past two decades since two thousand the networks have come to grips with just how important is and just how much power i is vested in them and so i think that's why it took until saturday at eleven twenty four whenever it was for them to take this step every time we got a new vote it just reaffirmed that. That was the pattern and the idea. That trump is going to overturn this with provisional ballots. That are already have quite a few. Democrats traditionally are extremely democratic. The idea that donald trump is suddenly going to win ninety six percent of that. Vote or something like that. You know the the implausibility. I think just finally reached Reach the critical threshold. I would like to ask. All the assembled network has right. Now why is it that you all clustered around ten or fifteen minutes to make one of the most important calls in modern american history and you all say that you have different. Proprietary approaches to call the elections on some level. Doesn't make a lot of sense.

Her to develop her own problems with substance abuse and realism. has struggles were eventually ended. Find the love of a wealthy. English spiritualist who married Kate and kept her happy and healthy for nearly ten years. But that charmed life ended in eighteen eighty eight. When he died leaving kate a single mother she eventually reverted to alcoholism and fell into destitution just like Maggie. Thirty years past with Maggie living a sad and lonely life just as her adolescence had been devoted to speaking with the dead, her adult life had been devoted to appeasing the spirit of one dead man when Kate fell into poverty and Maggie saw her beloved younger sister brought to her own ruinous. Grew angry. Compared to Leah's Happy Life Maggie and cates with tragedies writ large to Maggie. This was evidence of a great betrayal in the press Maggie accused Leah of profiteering off her younger sisters and lying to the public lear responded with her own bitter. Claiming younger sisters had lost their minds to the bottle. The sisters war of words was public and protracted eventually Maggie decided it was time to put an end to spiritualism for good. Maggie announced to the world that she would finally reveal how she and Kate had started the movement forty years earlier. On October twenty first eighteen, Eighty, eight, she held a demonstration in a packed theater at the Academy of Music's in New York City kate sat in the front row in solidarity with Maggie and her 'cause. Slowly she took the stage, a small woman in her fifties dressed in black. She read a statement to the audience explaining the wrappings simply the result of a perfect control of the muscles of the leg below the knee, which governed the tendons of the foot and allow action of the toe and ankle bones that are not commonly known. She went on to explain her early motivation saying no one suspected us of any trick because we was such young children we will lead on by my sister Leah purposely, and by mother unintentionally we often heard has say is this a disembodied spirit that has taken possession of my dear children with these dual influences we were exhibited to a lot of spiritualist fanatics and lear made as much as a hundred. To a hundred and fifty dollars a night she also claims that from the very beginning Lia had desired to start a new religion Lee will tell his sisters, how important their work was and how valuable speaking with the dead could be for people's souls leaving out how valuable it could be a her own pocket book to make matters worse. Leah deliberately confused youngest sister's as to whether spirits actually existed or not. While Maggie Kate's knew that then knocking were made by tricks, Leah claimed in private that she could actually speak to the dead and that she could teach sisters how Lia would teach her sisters, various tricks and deceptions like spirit writing, levitating tables, self, extinguishing candles, and so on. While claiming that these tricks were Melia parts of real communication with the spirit world for decades. Maggie had wonder if spirits actually did exist and if they could speak to the living all while she, herself was the con artist who had started the entire movement. But now after thirty years of being separated from her husband, she knew for certain that the spirits of the dead could not speak to the living if they could. Alicia would have cooled down to her long long ago. With that Maggie, removed his shoe and stocking and placed her foot on the table. She summoned doctors to examine up-close then she clicked her toe. The snaps of her knuckles resounded through the theater like the digging of a church bell. The doctors confirmed that the sounds were being made by Maggie. Fox's big toe at long last, the mystery had been solved at long last the Fox sisters were proven frauds spiritualism was dead or at least it should have been. The crowd was split in their reactions. skeptics felt vindicated and ecstatic dedicated spiritualists felt Maggie was lying and untrustworthy despite everything Maggie had revealed spiritualists the world over refuse to believe her confession the movements continued largely unaffected facing the futility of Herat and extreme destitution Maggie rescinded own confession one year later she then made her living as a medium once more traveling with kate from town to town ironically Leah's lifestyle was completely unaffected. She never spoke to her sister's again but it made little difference. She had a happy home with a wealthy husband and her seances continued until November first eighteen ninety when she died of heart failure caused by simple old age, she was at least seventy. Six years old Kate Fox died two years later in July of Eighteen, ninety, two at just fifty three years old her cause of death was kidney failure the results of long-term alcoholism one year later on March eighth 1893, mackey Fox died of alcoholism induced heart failure at fifty, nine years old both younger sisters died penniless and broken. They had started a religious movement and lost everything in spite of it. The three sisters have long since passed, but the movement they created still lives on today. In fact, many modern day spiritualists claimed to speak to the spirits of the Fox sisters on a regular basis proving sometimes the greatest cons can live on well beyond the artists.
"c. fox" Discussed on SI Boxing with Chris Mannix
"And everything going on in boxing and now a man who I wish was called the Boston leader. It's sort of like getting who punched in the face. Well welcome back to another episode of the SL boxing. podcast glad you could join me this week because we have a little bit of a different type of episode. There's a lot of talk about what Fox is doing in boxing. They've really invest heavily in the sport. They've done a lot of promotion ocean on their big platforms and a lot of great shoulder. Programming they've also heavily invested in the pay per view business. And that's led some people to wonder about the future of boxing with Fox how to showtime fit into that mix. I was over at the Fox studios this past week had a chance to sit down with Bill Wang. Who is the top executive at Fox? When it comes was to boxing program we covered all the base? It was a really terrific conversation. We went back and forth on a few different issues which I appreciated from Bill. He was very Forthright in some of his feelings about the state of boxing and we talked about pretty much everything. You'd want to talk about when it comes to Fox programming and boxing stick around for that great conversation with bill winger at Fox sports quick housekeeping note. If you like this podcast is a very easy way can support it head over apple podcast post a comment leave a rating. It's simple it's easy it's free. It's the best way to make sure that we keep doing this. podcast week after week. That's it all right. Let's go I built. Winger is here Executive Vice President had program and scheduling over at Fox bill for the purposes of this audience. Explain what that means. Your title means for boxing. Well first of all thank you for for having me for boxing it means Taking a look at a calendar year figuring out where the different events will go on various platforms whether it's Fox Fox the Portes F s one pay per view And working with the PBC and creating that schedule so all complaints addressed to you right because boxing twitter is not a very even keeled social platform. Yes all complaints to to me of course following you on social media. It's been I believe a little over years. Since you formally announced the deal with a multi year deal with the platform platform. I just give me your overall sense of how it's been year one. Is it what you expected. Different better worse than how you laid out It's it's what we expected You know we were in business with the PBC and Al Hayman under a different contract prior to the end of two thousand eighteen eighteen so we were familiar with the process and the boxing world. And I think what changed was the volume. I'm and the pace of it in terms of having multiple fights to fights a month sometimes three That was really the biggest difference. What what was it that made you want to to be in business with? PBC without him. What was it last was about two years that you were doing the time buy model that? Yeah so he had a more of a time buy model. It was really a couple of things number one the the stable of fighters that the PBC and Al Hayman have is you second-to-none they have close to one hundred seventy fighters You know all the top names in the Qiwei classes welterweight heavyweight eight. The one hundred fifty four is the one hundred sixty eight so that was the number one draw Working with Al.. We built a really good relationship with him That was another draw and I also think it was the right time in boxing. In terms of the there was a great crop rop of boxers coming into their own Errol Spence deontay wilder Kayla plant. And we felt that we could grow these personalities and boxers into stars develop. You've done that or headed that direction. You're one KAYLA plants a good example. I think a lot the people were alerted to his story. Because of what you you how you promoted him. Yeah Caleb you know. His first fight was on F s one in January Two Thousand Nineteen He's been on Fox broadcasting a number of times and he will begin in twenty twenty Yet yeah so that we can invest in and grow and tell his story We've had a lot of shoulder. Program produce not only on him but but but all the fighters there's and we've really exposed boxing in the PBC to to a mass audience. We're really in the business with with the PBC for the long term mm-hmm and to grow boxing. And we're doing that by putting it on our broad platform like Fox and F s one and we have a different model than some some of the other entities that are working with with boxing. And to that end you've done I think Fox and a really good job at showed the shoulder program part of it of promoting molding all these fights on their platforms and you guys have really made a strong investment with with all the things that go around fights me. was that the plan kind of going in that. We're not only GONNA be in the boxing we're GONNA make sure we use. NFL on Fox and all your biggest platforms to promote this stuff. Yeah I mean our goals to grow the sport of boxing to grow the brand to grow The profiles of these fighters. You know we just had our first fight camp episode for the deonte wilder other Luiz Ortiz. Fight A week ago after an NFL single header and delivered over two million viewers. So yeah we're really exposing in this programming and these fighters to a whole new audience and you mentioned Kayla plant in that video on January. I thought that fight got a massive boost off of what was it. The cowboys game I think was on that afternoon. And it led to a really significant number on F S. One Yeah It was about three quarters of a million viewers on F S One. Yeah we had playoff playoff football promoting into that Kayla plant fight so it's a way that we're using our assets to to grow these fighters and grow the sport when something like that happens to you. Look look at it and say all right that this is proof that our promotional muscle behind it works situation list for a fighter like plant a good fighter but not the most well known guy out there. Yeah absolutely you know the exposure that the promotions inside baseball and NFL soccer Nascar College Football College basketball It it's it's extremely valuable And that's one one of the reasons why the PBC wanted to be partners with us when when zone came onto the scene right around the same time as you kind of ink that deal with PBC One of their mottos. If you will was pay per view is screwed like their whole thing was pay per view is is done. This is going to be the new model you guys have turned turn around and it just seems pay per view is something your heavily invested in doing for the most significant fights. Why have you chosen kind of to go that route with pay per view? Well we just think it's a great opportunity to reach directly to to the fan base. It's also important to remember that you know we're only doing about four to five pay pay per view year. The vast majority of our fights are on Fox and NFS one. We'll have ten fights a year on Fox about twelve fights by two year. NFS One and as four to five on pay per view We just felt it was a great way to to to reach the audience Much more so than you can do on a direct to consumer platform like a disown or ESPN plus at this point so so And there hasn't for awhile in the Two thousand thirteen to two thousand sixteen. There wasn't a lot of pay per view happening and we felt we could bring it back with with some of these top fighters. Do you eat you do a lot of fights obviously on Fox and won the top fights though continue to go over to pay per view. I mean how do you envision that kind of balance working moving forward you see you know Fox. Having a you know spence porter type of fight wilder Ortiz type of fight on Main Fox in the future. Yeah I can definitely see that You know I think the the biggest names the the wilders dispenses and the pack Yau's For the most part I think right now will be on pay per view but we could take for example and Arrow spends fight And put it on Fox to grow that fan base even more. Is that for budget reasons that you're you keep it on paper view. It's one of the reasons I mean. It's you know we do get some revenue obviously from the pay per view And you know it is a strategy ars to bring in additional revenue stream so that is You know that is the plan. And you know we're we're we're only going to have four or five of those a year. You know for the best of the best fights from what I've been told you guys do really well most digital pay-per-view streams over indexing on them is that fair to say yeah I mean right now the digital digital streaming represents anywhere from ten to twelve percent of the total is. It's a pretty significant number. Two two previous pay per view models. Yeah and and that number is growing so You know we've built a platform for digital pay per view Where people can buy ahead on any device and cast it on their large? TV If they want to watch it on their phone their IPAD And you know we. He's still obviously are working very closely with the traditional. MVP DIS on selling the fights. Do you to go back for a second to the idea of putting a major the vent on Fox one of the things I I thought would have been interesting going into the spence porter. Was I believe you just had that smackdown deal and you had it was. There was a Friday night before or the Spencer Porter fight in the middle of football season. I was curious because that's a high level fight. How much muscle? How much your muscle would be worth in a situation like that? We're having the ability to put promotion on the Fox football stuff to promotion on. Maybe on smackdown stuff did that. I mean does that something that you think about that just sort of when you have all these assets to be able to Kinda put them all into that. Yeah I mean if you look at the dates of our papers that we've done so far. They are strategically replaced in in months where we have a significant promotional platform so fox will will typically have more pay per views in the fall than we do at any other time of the year because of the promotional platforms of NFL and postseason baseball in college. Football how does it work. I think a lot of people curious. How the relationship without and with Fox works and it comes to putting fights on the air I guess is there is there? What's the process that it has to go through? Well you know Al and his team there. They're matchmakers we definitely give some input..
