Senate Republicans push for announcement of Supreme Court nominee
"Trump and Joe Biden on the stakes of appointing a new justice to the Supreme Court in the final days before the election, and it's time now for our Sunday group GOP strategist Karl Rove. Fox Fox News at night anchor Shannon Brain who covers the Supreme Court for US, and Noel Athe of Georgetown University's Institute of Politics and Public Service. Panel. I've done some reporting on this, and here's what I have been hearing from a source a top source close to the process. Republican senators and White House officials are pressing the president to announce His nominee before the first debate next week. Ah, consensus seems to be developing in the Senate toe hold confirmation hearings confirmation hearings before the election, but delay a final vote till a lame duck session after November 3rd. To protect vulnerable Republicans who are up for re election. As for the nominee, the early focused on the White House not settled yet. But the early focuses on two federal appeals court judges any Cockney Barrett of Indiana and Barbara Lagoa of Florida, Carl What is your sense? I'm sure you're talking to people at the White House and in the Republican majority in the Senate. What's your sense of where this is at it? Well, I think you outlined it. I think the president is prepared to make a quick nomination. I suspect that the Senate is ready Assumes the FBI does its background check one of the things about doing both of doing either. One of these two appellate judges is that they were confirmed by the by the Senate in recent years, so the FBI background check will only need to be sort of an update, not a complete new deep dive. So The process is on its way. I suspect in a rather rapid fashion. Do you think the confirmation hearing happens before the election, But the actual vote happens after they hold that for the lame duck. I wouldn't be surprised to see the committee hold hearings and maybe even vote before the election. But I don't expect that with just over 42 days, 44 days. I guess it is that that it will be possible. Teo bring this all the way to the floor before the election.

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart: Janissary Music
"I'm Naomi Moon Welcome to classics for. Kids. Let's start this show off with a bang. You. Know how? When a certain kind of music catches on whether it's rap or jazz or Latino suddenly you hear it all over well, all over Europe in the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries you would have heard Turkish flavored music like this marked by Ludwik von Beethoven. A very reasonable question would be if Beethoven was German, what was he doing writing Turkish music? The Sultan who ruled Turkey used to have a very select group of guards called Jan Aseries, actually, jams areas, what the Turkish term for new army sounded like to European ears like most armies. The Janice series had a band and since this was a Turkish army, the Janice every band used Turkish instruments like bass drums, triangles, and cymbals when the Sultan of Turkey since January, bands to Europe people went nuts over the exotic sound of those instruments hey, couldn't get enough of Turkish. Music. European composers knowing what their audiences wanted to hear started writing. Turkish. Sounding pieces and even set some of those pieces in Turkey This is the overture to Mozart's opera the abduction from the Seraglio. Seraglio. Was the Turkish Sultan's palace a palace which he kept US sizable Harem of wives. Plural. Very poor. Mozart wasn't the only composer to set an opera in Turkey German composer. Carl Maria. Von Vaber did to and he even gave his opera a Turkish name. Abu Hassan. And Turkish sounds crept into orchestra music too. For Instance Haydn's symphony number one. Kendrick. Since people associated the sound of drums, triangles and cymbals with Turkish army bands that Haydn symphony came to be known as the Military Symphony. The best symbols in the world are still made by the same family that made them in Haydn's day the Zil jains, the name zillion is Turkish for symbol maker a Turkish Sultan gave it to the first symbol maker in the family almost four centuries ago today zillions live in Massachusetts where they make the symbols you here in rock bands and symphony orchestras. That's from Wellington's victory by Beethoven. After. The FAD for January music died down the cymbals bass drums and triangles didn't go back to Turkey those instruments. Oh, their place in today's orchestras and bands to the eighteenth century European craze for Turkish music of all the composer's latched onto the sound of the January band I think Beethoven did it best? My favorite bit of January music is tucked into the middle of the last movement of Beethoven's Ninth Symphony. That Sound is a controversy soon, the lowest pitched woodwind instrument there is it's acting almost like a bass drum. Back when January music was popular, you could buy a piano equipped with a special. January pedal by thumping down on it, you could accompany yourself with your own personal triangle and drums percussion section. Unfortunately today, those pianos are only found in museums when both amodio Mozart composed his Turkish Rondo he managed to get the piano to imitate Janice drums even without a special pedal. That's Mozart's Turkish Rondo. Now that you know about the Turkish part to find out what a Rondo is, join me next time for classics for kids.
Philadelphia Pastor Who Confronted President Trump Over MAGA Slogan Not Satisfied With Answer
"President trump still on defense and trying to spin away from what he called a set up and just having to speak with you know real voters at a town hall and a moment we are joined by Philadelphia Pastor Carl Day who press trump last night. Let's take a look on just what the Maga slogan means to different people. You've coined the phrase make America. Great again when has Been Great for African Americans in a ghetto of America, are you aware how tone deaf that comes off to African American community? Can say this we have tremendous African American support statement is don't make it great again. So historically, the African American experience. especially in these, these ghettos have been our red line historically these ghettos systemically instead of yet to address in acknowledged, he has been a race problem in America. So if you go I hope is not a race problem. I can tell you this done with me. I have great respect for all races for everybody. We turned out a passenger call from Philadelphia. I should mention he serves on that city's racial reconciliation committee which the mayor formed after the police shooting at the police death I should say of George Floyd. Killing of George Floyd. You pose that important question. Many people. Saw It now please let us know what did you think of the president's answer Well I think the president failed to. Answer. The question because the true answer is that he came point to actual time in history The America's been great for African Americans. Especially, those that have been living in these undisturbed, intentionally set up a red line ghettos of America in which we see today. This to something really fundamental which is. The type of history and nostalgia that Donald Trump has invoked. Sounds different to people. I'm curious in your work which we mentioned. and. In the way you want to educate people. What do you say to Americans and specifically white Americans who say well. They don't see it as a problem because there were plenty of things they think used to be better. What do you say? Well. I would sell them the same thing that you know push in any political room that I sit in. Journey with the people. That you try to happen to. You know we heard the president various Tom's alluded to it being a democratic issue and just blaming it on the Democrat politicians. But the truth of the matter is you have to start to a search. The root causes a problem. What causes symptoms at what point? That these communities ahead so much access to guns and drugs, which they quite frankly weren't growing themselves. They quite frankly didn't have the financial economical structure to just go ahead and bring you know an army full of guns cities. How did this get here at some point we need? White. Americans all kinds of people to actually answer any engage these communities talk to the people who've actually lived there. Instead of just leaning going media narratives leaning on the president giving you a shock value stats about unemployment going down find out how much does it actually cost with these residents in major cities in Johnson actually have access to Those are the things in which so so it's all about love your neighbor getting to no two people that are around you or if you're really concerned as much as you say, you are go to where they live built meaningful relationships and at least hear their perspective rather than debate political bar.

President Trump doesn't dispute downplaying COVID in order to reduce 'panic'
"There are a few games for every president. One of those games is that at some point, Bob Woodward will write a book about you. While you're in office, the Democratic National Committee is trying to solve this prime minister. Began before dawn Saturday when five intruders were captured by police inside the offices of the committee in Washington. By Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein broke the Watergate story since then Woodward has done his thing where he talks to literally everybody can at the White House and writes up the narrative that emerges to do that he often talks to sources on deep background that means names aren't used not even their direct quotes. The reason I bring this up is don't talk to him. Someone else will and the best way to get your version of the story out there is to give him a call. I. That is how he managed to get interviews over the. Last several months we begin tonight with those bombshell recordings. We yesterday we finally learned what is in Bob Woodward's latest book about President Trump. There were lots of revelations in the Washington Post report, but the biggest was the claim that the president intentionally misled Americans about how bad the novel Corona virus was at a critical moment and this admission do not come from a bunch of unnamed sources it came from President trump himself. Let's ABC's chief White House correspondent Jonathan, Karl John We've now learned the president did a ton of on record interviews with Bob Woodward. What did he tell him? Well, he did eighteen interviews with Woodward Woodward tape them, and now we we hear the audio here the President's voice in this headline on the virus, which is you see the president's progression slee we only have five people hopefully everything's GonNa be great. They have somewhat of a problem, but hopefully, it's all going to be great but we're working. With China just so you know and other countries very very closely. So it doesn't get out of hand February seventh interview. So this is really we're starting to grasp the the severity of the pandemic overseas, not necessarily here in the United States yet the president tells Woodward quite candidly that this is really bad. It goes through Air Bob that's always tougher than the touch. You don't have to touch things right. But the air, you just breathe the air that's how it's passed. This is more deadly than the flu more deadly than even the most strenuous flus. So. The president is acknowledging on February seventh to Bob Woodward that this is a really dangerous threat. And in and by the way. The virus fast forward that working hard looks like by April and theory when it gets a little warmer. Miraculously goes away. That's true. We know what the president was saying publicly was largely downplaying the threat. This is a flu. This is like a flu within a couple of days is going to be down close to zero. Now it's turning out not just all people. Today and yesterday. Some startling facts came out. It's not just old all. Were asked him about that in a in a subsequent interview in the middle of March, and the president quite candidly says that he likes to. Downplay the threat basically because he doesn't want to get people to work up, I, wanted to. Play it down I like laying it down. Because I don't want to create panic. And you were sitting in the White House briefing room waiting for the press secretary as this was all dropping yesterday, right like Woodward's audio recordings playing on CNN's. What was the response from the White House? Well, this is an extraordinary story of Woodward and scientist Woodward's reportings. We often get in his books. There's actual tapes of the President's Voice essentially acknowledging that he had been misleading the American public I mean. This is this is there other details of the book that were also you know embarrassing so clearly, a little bit of damage control in real time is going on in the white? House the. Breathing was pushed back by fifteen minutes than another fifteen minutes than another fifteen minutes and eventually Kelly Mac, in any of the press secretary comes out. So this president does what leaders do good leaders it stay calm and resolute at a time when you faced an insurmountable challenge, that's what this president is not that the president lied to the American College about the threat posed by the president has never lied to the American public on Cova actually say. That the president. Did Not downplay the coronavirus threat never downplayed the virus. Once again, the president expressed calm. The president was serious about this when Democrats were pursuing their sham and. Hear the president's. Own Voice telling Bob Woodward. Always play it down I still like playing down likes to play it down because he doesn't want to create a panic and then after macanese briefing, the president came out made an announcement on related about his potential judicial nominees. And he was asked about this and said you know so did you mislead the public well I think if you said in order to reduce panic perhaps that sell fact is a cheerleader for this country I love our country and I don't want people to be frightened I don't want to create panic as you say, and certainly I'm not going to drive. This country or the world into a frenzy, and he acknowledges right there right there what he said on the tape to Woodward yes. He he does downplaying worried about creating panic. Well. So what is the justification of that though John Jonkers? I didn't WANNA start a panic but on the other hand, if somebody hears, you say this is no worse than a flu and they act like that and then they get the coronavirus and have horrible health from vacations I mean, what do you say to that the White House? It's a tough one because this is a president the. Leadership and not creating a panic isn't about like lying to
"carl k" Discussed on Le Batard and Friends - South Beach Sessions
"You wired you the one saying. We were bad ass high near lawfirm because we were not afraid to lose, okay, and Johnny had such success before I even joined their man. I just wrote away man my point. Is that Michael Jackson and Oj? Simpson didn't end up there by accident sure. I mean that that's how that that that's how that ends up happening because they realize where it is that people understand even. The criminally misunderstood because I don't know whether you saw that. Hbo Documentary or not, but to me from my vantage point on the Michael Jackson stuff. I thought that it became obvious in that documentary that he is guilty of pedophilia like I am I, being an idiot there. Because I thought, the documentary was very persuasive. It's interesting because win. I represented Michael during the first time he was charged. Those two guys were exhibits one and two supporting Michael Wait Rosen. They weren't they were the poster boys. Supporting that nothing ever went on. A and they sounded very believable to me, but it's so ironic man because they were the poster boys you know. Every time so you watch the documentary. And what do you think to yourself because I'm finding? They're saying the exact opposite now and I'm finding them saying the opposite to be persuasive. Listened to their version, I don't have I'm a dish. CARE is I didn't see bill I saw recently last six months or so, and their story sounded believable to me. Let me say that okay. That's because you can get to it right as someone who was representing the the other side. Yeah, but but at the time do you have any remorse or guilt about the idea? And this is something that is deeply deeply embedded in the law. Though no, I'm just wondering. If at any point, there is some crime that comes across your desk where you say this is something that I can't defend. It's not defensible. Oh! Atl- I have been a lawyer for forty years I. Don't do child molestation cases ironically I. Don't handle rate cases I don't like them.

"Years we had one why lawyer for about a year and a half a former police officer. We thought that was unique. We had an interracial staff support staff. We had Asian secretaries although we were primarily primarily african-american. How unusual was that at the time? In Los Angeles and they as a plaintiff firm, I would say in Los Angeles today. There are fewer than twenty five black lawyers who make half of their money as a plaintiff, personal injury lawyer, and that's an a city of nine million most African American lawyers worked for the government's or they do defense work, because they are the criminal lawyers, because there is greater predictability in that I have to win in order to keep my doors open, so that helps that impacts.

That's an interesting question. I've never been asked that question.

"Rolls royces okay I remember after the trial within a month, we were in Miami at the Miami airport going to meet. This kid in in jail federal prison in Miami and Johnny got off the plane wearing a purple jacket walking down the center of the aisle in the Miami. Air Board a week after the verdict I this day back that one voice cell phones where? He was revelling walking bell. Now our way, no one who. The most dangerous place to be in America is between a trial lawyer and a camera. That's working less there being no now. We have massive egos man. His Swag specifically made him different for the time because the things that you're talking about their. Thick, they could not have been very common in fact I can see now where and how it is, you'd be attracted to somebody. who was that kind of showman? Johnny Cochran went to Los Angeles High School in the sixties before it was integrated. With Dustin Hoffman, he was, he went to Ucla and was a star on the court quarterback on the football team before it was fashionable, so he was always a bed of the curve man. I'm telling for him to be living Los. Angeles in the seventies and the black lawyer was so out of bounds. Lack lawyers then lived in Baldwin hills or Ladera. Heights other portions Nebraska Beverly Hills, win venture out to the hills of those feelers for him to be driving a Rolls Royce in the early Seventies. Okay, it was like the parade going through town and Johnny had this rare ability to connect with kings and poppers alike. He could go to a fancy restaurant and he go to knock us a little hole in the wall, an incompetent and eat hamburgers than have the juicer off his lips. When you say that it was inevitable that Johnny, Cochran was going to take over the Oj Simpson case. Are you saying because his merits meredith it so much more than any of the other lawyers? Are you saying that a percentage of that is because it became obvious very early that this needed to be represented by black people, because this was going to become a trial about race, or are you saying it's a mixture of the two or neither?.

"Symbol of the fight. Against All that was wrong in Los Angeles when you hear about the problems of black and Brown people and the police nationwide man. We were Ground Zero in Los Angeles for my entire life, so johnny was always the icon and the ball worked for that, which would brought the love of black and Brown people in Los Angeles? Is it fair to say that Johnny? Cochran was akin because? Because of the specific work that he was doing and shining light on that, he was essentially Al Sharpton that he was Jesse Jackson that he was park. Religious leader part legal leader part civil rights leader that he was. I mean I don't mean to turn him into a saint, because everybody is a little bit flawed, but you're talking about one of the great black leaders of all time. and. I, you do a disservice to him by comparing him to Jesse. Jackson and Al Sharpton Icee, so should I go to Martin Luther King should I go like honestly given the work that he was doing given that he's doing in the court system given that he's fighting an unjust systemic problem that not a lot of people outside of Los Angeles knew about who weren't black, and what's more, he was more than simply a civil rights icon and leader in the black community, because he joined the District Attorney's Office Win John Van De Kamp, was the DA and he was the number three man for? For three years in the District Attorney's office and while there he created the DA rollout unit were lawyers district attorney were sent on rollout to any and every officer involved shooting that was in nineteen, eighty, one, that was a ground-breaking then, and that still goes on today now across the country whenever there is an officer involved shooting. You're gonNA, have a district attorney. There somewhere close. It's GonNa. Be a whitewash. They're not gonNA find anything to charge the cops with a crime, but at least they're gonna be there and the cops know that they are there and that's something that he started erase. Of His commitment to the ideals of civil rights, and and and the plight of black and Brown people in Los Angeles and the world. Man Why do I do a disservice to him by comparing him putting him in the? Because, those were the famous black leaders of the time whether or not, they did what black folks wanted them doing whether they were good. Leaders are not as another is another matter. But why am I doing a disservice when I compare Johnny Cochran two of the most famous black leaders and civil rights that they've been. I know their history perhaps more than you or some of your listeners, and because of their history I take their. GRAVITAS in a greater context and they are not the the iconic black leaders that many may say because I know their history I appreciate what they've done. And their contribution to the SPROGOE, but their weaknesses to me overshadow my praise for their enlightenment. So did you see along the path? It go to Johnny's head. Did you see because there are certain inevitability to success and I gotta think that at. At some point, the ego ran amok there well, he always had a big ego bre Johnny Cochran live in Los, feeless, which was the exclusive white community in the seventies when nobody in black was doing it Johnny Cochran a drove a Rolls Royce in early seventies when nobody had.

He was the lone partner in the law office of Johnny Cochran, Jr. but I was the managing lower than the firm, and I sat with them Johnny. Take that shit out your hair. It looks stupid. You are young as it is, and you don't need that. Shouldn't you're here? Because? Then? When he walked through the office, the incandescent lights shone differently in the two brave man, and it looks stupid, and I could not have Johnny Cochran my icon.

Because that had to be a little bit jarring to hear because you reach a certain point in success Karl where people absolutely do not tell you the truth, they they. They'll let you look ridiculous because you've acquired so much success that people get afraid to tell you the real stuff. Perhaps that's who I am as a person Dan, but it reflects my love and respect for Johnny, Cochran one thing I can say about Johnny Cochran. Twelve years man and Johnny respected you one. If you can make a payroll and two, if you could try a case every year, I was there, I lost at least one case every year, and never once did. He criticized me for having lost the case because he knew you can't get a home run unless you're up there swinging the Batman, so it was my love of him. That may need tell him that. She was still been explained to me. They'll how he became an icon for you because. I don't know that the audience at large. This was a long time ago I. Don't know that the audience at large understands what Johnny Cochran was as a symbol. That is the value I think as a civil rights lawyer from Los Angeles of that Fabulous Oscar Award winning documentary, because the first four hours were nothing about. But it gave you some context of the historical connection between the American community, and the LAPD here and now one Dan can ever appreciate how the OJ Simpson verdict was.

"Who had OJ Simpson and Michael Jackson both talking to them that same night about their case, Bro I could not sleep that entire nights. I'm wondering. How do you find? What's the back story on how you find yourself? I mean this is an uncommon path. Right? The idea that somebody in the mid nineties could go through everything America had gone through and become a black attorney, talking to Michael Jackson and OJ Simpson on the same night that to you in terms of celebrity star power like what's the path that leads to you ending up there because it's improbable, correct what people who are not? Not from Los Angeles a don't understand is Johnny Cochran was always as famous in Los Angeles before Oj, as he became nationwide after Oj when Michael Jackson I got in his problems with the first young kid, he called on Johnny Cochran when he was in Mexico. Not Knowing whether there were charges against him, because Johnny was just the man and Johnny Audio Garcetti. They were personal friends and found out there were no charges pending against Michael, and then Johnny Elizabeth Taylor's airplanes fly down to Mexico and debris Michael Jackson back from Mexico. It's funny Dan because we had to ask for my permission to represent OJ Simpson. Because Michael was our client I. And Michael was very much the brother all he needs help help out. But. We've I wanted to make sure that Michael was cool with are coming on the O.. J. Simpson, Chase What is your back story like? How do you end up and explained to me? Go back to your teenage years and explained to me how you arrive there and how improbable that path is okay, so Johnny Cochran. I'm raised from Los Angeles lives. I was to Johnny, was always the man or black Los Angeles because he represented people who were victimized by police. Came back to La after going to college at northwestern Chicago. Law Schools UC Berkeley and Berkeley and I came back to La and worked at the federal public defender's office for five years, representing people that are charged with federal crimes. Then Los Angeles was the bank robbery capital of the world, three ways and bates were on every corner. They did not have the PLEXIGLAS and the eighties. Eighty percent of the FBI was on bank robbery detail in the mid eighties. When I was there I was there for five. Five years one of my best buddies told me that Johnny Cochran of looking for a lawyer and I was someone come in and try case I can try a criminal case. And because Johnny had a criminal background, he knew I could try a civil case, and so I had that combination of US criminal background and a civil background that made it right for Michael. Jackson, and for O. J. Simpson. Could you talk to Johnny Cochran Away? A lot of the other attorneys there wouldn't dare talk to Johnny Cochran. Vote for better or for worse, I was one who always Dave Truth Dan I tell every client today that I have a condition. I suffer from terminal honesty. I will tell them what I think. Even if they may not wanna hear it man, because that's just the way I am I got a story I remember. It was in the post. OJ Simpson. Johnny Cochran was the biggest man on earth, and he was wearing a to pay for the bald spots in the center back of his head. We in the office knew it was a to pay, and it looks stupid. But.

Just the idea that some asshole can walk into a newsroom or a read shortly after rob was killed. There was credible threats against the Boston Globe staff and they arrested a guy who threaten to go in there and everybody down. Now you can say that. There's these the sentiments always existed. But we're much more violent country than we were thirty forty years ago and and even during Watergate. There's more guns there's more nuts with guns and there's more encouragement encouragement and the rhetoric of hate is much more open. There's no shame to it now. You're on the Internet. You can battle anonymously all you want about how you hate Jews and blacks and Muslims and I mean it's disturbingly easy to find these kinds of people and a lot of them are armed so I think there is a concern that this is closer to the boiling. INCONTINENT overbid Carl. I don't want to press on anything here that you don't want to talk about but as it relates to your brother when you talk about grieving families how much of of that are you willing to share with the audience of the story the particulars of of what this into your family and specifically tragedy that it would well describable. We've known each other for so I can tell you I mean I couldn't really write anything for two months I For the first time in my entire career I was paralyzed with the brief of it. And then also helping my brother's family. You know. Try to cope with three grown kids and his wife took thirty three years. It was her birthday when he was murdered that day and he left a president for her on the dining table before he went to work for the last time and it was still there weeks later. She couldn't. You know I mean you hear these stories stories and I I mean I know so many people have been through. Horrible tragedies can identify with them but it does. It's it's a crippling and crushing thing that you you don't get over and I don't know that I'll ever get over it. I don't I know his family. You just try to ban. It's gone and the only thing that can help me through was. I knew that he would want me to keep writing. You would want me to keep doing what I do. Keep working on the novels treatment and keep banging out the columns once a week and I mean he was a pure journalist hard. I know it would have broken his heart if he thought what happened happen to him would make me stop or quit or reconsider. What I do in the way I do it? So that's what got me going and I can't speak for the rest of the family. The kids have all been affected hid in different ways. I don't care whether you're nine years old or nineteen or twenty nine to lose your father in that way such a public way to see his face on CNN CNN for three or four days in a row with the other four victims you know over and over again. I mean it's very difficult to try to cope when it's a crime of that magnitude and it's out there for so long all other than James you so good question man. I don't know I think it made me a little more. I don't want to say maybe a little more guarded. It didn't change the where I wrote or the way I write but I think it it made me a little more conscious of situations to put myself in because there's so many honey nuts out there you know. I mean I'm not paranoid but I'm a little more alert than I used to be. Just two things that don't look right or something letters you get a letter you know I mean we all get nutty letters before in this business. You've just a little more alert and aware of it. I guess and it's made me more aware of the ripple effect of these crimes. Which I I always knew rob went to plantation high? The way I did so now. It's not too far from Parkland so after the Parkland shoot. He and I were both extremely shaken up and destroyed by. It was so close close to home and those kids I mean. It was just in our backyards basically when we were kids so ironically we had talked about that and then only a few months later handed into him. It's hard to look at the scars from the outside. I'm sure it's changed me. Wait it's never gonna get fixed but then there's no solace right you can't there's not a solace in. Hey you know he died a heroic journalist or no. You can't find nothing. Feels like solid. No it doesn't and here's the thing and this is all he was doing. He was putting on a community community paper in Annapolis Maryland. He was in there at any copy for whatever was happening the next day in that town for those people and he cared about that he worked for years for for the Baltimore Sun before the for the Palm Beach Post and he was doing what ninety nine percent of the journalists in this country do they go in. And what's the lead story on the sports page. What's the lead story on city? What's it just the craft and you know the Basic Day to day put out the paper? And that's all he was doing. He was sitting at his desk and sitting. Next to the ED writer. All he was doing was trying to put news and information into the hands of readers in Annapolis Maryland. He wasn't any doing anything more than and that and yet it's an it's an extremely important job and people say where he was in the wrong place at the wrong time I said no he was exactly exactly the place he wanted to be wasn't at the wrong time. That's where he was supposed to be. You know what happened to them. It's not what's supposed to happen that's all. I can't believe that you come from journalism this way and you wouldn't be wounded by the idea that you come from a dangerous place ice. You've been a fearless writer your entire career and now in your sixties because of something horrific happened to your family. You sound like you're just a little more afraid afraid and you've never been someone who's afraid right. No I don't think the columns have gotten any soft or anything like that. Here's one thing that you learn from this Dan and when you see hey how many other people were hurt by this kind of crime and my concern for rob's wife and his kids and my own family what happens is you start thinking about damage edge way beyond what would happen to just me. You know what I'm saying and And so I think it makes you think a little more about family by. I've always been a fair just because the nature. What we we did back in the seventies and eighties in the newsroom The kind of things we had to cover all civil disturbances girl you were going after money. You're going after Big money you're going like. Hey you're going after. You don't know what you could write in Miami and the eighties. That would bring some it man to your house. Yeah ended ended but because of that. I think I was cognizance of my whereabouts. And what you know. I didn't try to put myself in any risk and certainly I was not nearly at the same level level of risk at the foreign correspondents we have. We're in Central America. Of course. Are you sure because I'm absolutely sure I wasn't listen to those folks that went into combat situations. You Know Tim. Chapman was in Nicaragua with the Sandinistas. I mean he got shot down. The helicopter forgot six. I wouldn't you you know I wouldn't. I'm joking I'm just saying it was a pretty dangerous to you. Were writing fearlessly and a pretty claim. Let me put it like this. I knew what stoplights in town you stop. That and I knew what stoplights you blew through just street stuff. You learn that stuff but I was never the hero guy. Then I I mean I really wasn't and they investigations team. We had JIM savage in those. Oh my God I mean one of the best in the country I just. I was so lucky it helped. The novels was later because the stuff the absorb in the things you get to see the people you know the bad guys you get the interview and the good guys you get into all of that helps you when creating characters. Here's and fiction later. You learn how the world works you learn the ugly side of it. You learn the better side of it but as it helps you as a fiction writer to had that kind of exposure. What was your to a city like that at the time we were there you know I mean it really enhances not just your credibility but your sense of of a of competences happening as you write about this stuff and so I was blessed in A? We're in a weird way for for just being there at that time. When you started writing the best case scenario for where your career would end up was what like your biggest dream? You know exceeded them right. You've exceeded whatever it is you dreamt about. I tell you what I when I was little I WANNA do. I WanNa grow up in sports. The Yankees had Spring Training Fort Lauderdale. My grandfather would take to the games and I thought it was the coolest thing in the world that somebody actually got paid. sportswriters got paid to go to begin the got to go to the Games for free. Then they got to write about the gains and put their names games on the story so that everybody else would read about it. I thought that's that that's exactly why I started. That's got to be the best Gig in the world absolutely And then here's what happened at the college. I was interning at the Gainesville Sun. I remember in high school sports. You'll appreciate this so I cover some football game. Aim Buck hold. Somebody and ends with a kid missing a short field goal and the other team when I drive this story what maybe eight inches nine inches tucked somewhere inside the sports pages games get missed a field goal. The other team wins..

"It's available now. And he's one of my favorite writers growing up very funny. Writing funny is really hard. So how did it start for you in the Florida keys the gravitation toward writing. Well I mean I actually grew up in plantations when it was in the cow pastures on the edge of the everglades out there and I was lucky i. My mom had been an English teacher and we had a lot of books in the House and I actually started reading Dan. I mean I learned to read on the sports page of the Miami Herald Reading Eddie Pope by courting to my mother. That's where I learned to read 'cause I would read sports stories and my dad in the morning when he was drinking his coffee so I loved newspapers from an early age and I. I was lucky enough to know that I want to write then when I got to high school plantation high. I started this little sort of an underground newsletter. I was just smart ass reverend. All the kids are getting beaten up by reading it and they were they like the U Martha. This is a good way not to get slugged if I can make them laugh and that's kind of what I stuck doc where I didn't realize that are stories. were similar that way because it was the same thing for me in high school wasn't about fight but I wasn't very popular and writing about the athletes was really the first thing anyone when told me I was any good at and the athletes founded funding. And so I was able to be more popular with them. I think a lot of us have something in our background. It was. There's a way to express yourself and be somebody was closer to your true self and the kids walk around the hall at the Book Bags and everything and then I I mean I was just lucky. My Dad got typewriter brighter now. Six years old. 'cause I love to rival stories and things then I've been very blessed and of course the long time at the Herald and then books that have been All a wonderful L. surprised but it is painful debasing work at one less painful and debasing that does not sound like the height of joy and laughter. I think if you talked to Dave Berry about it to tell you that and you said it earlier that's writing when you're supposed to be funny is hard because you don't always feel funny and I think it's a very tight rope between writing a funny line and writing terrible flat line. That doesn't work. And so you agonize over every adjective tiven every common everything. I think more so than just sort of straight writing and I mean you. EASTBOUND is with the columns. There's a little more pressure when people expect to be entertained. A certain way and now it's it's harder and harder to be funny because the at least in a satirical way because the headlines are funny enough to the cells they surpass satire. I daily basis Florida. Well you have to be marveling. Throughout your career. At the number the richness of our area novels were filled with this stuff like we grew up in in the most wonderful shittiest place. Carl for this kind of writing in. There's a great irony there Dan because I was born and raised. I mean I love the place so much so much. What's happened to it? horrifies me but at the same time it's provided me an income because they angry or get the more I write about it and I think most satire to be honest with you comes from sort of a well of anger and sense of injustice and and so all the fuel that has helped my writing. In underway the weirdness and the depravity and the greed of of Florida has as enrich me as well. So it's a double edged sword. But you're right I mean I think if you you travel around the country and you do quite a bit and you meet people and you say you're from Florida. They want you to sit down and tell stories. Because they can't they can't relate to it. Well you did tell circus stories because the politics gave you such rich oil. I'm curious when People WanNa talk to you about your columns for the Miami Herald. How High I on the list is the courage that you had to have to continually go after the publisher of the newspaper because it was running for politics on your telling him publisher logo like? Yeah where where does that rank in terms of columns that people want to ask you about. The there was a time in newspapers when you had com almost kind of gentle and you know on the one hand this and on the other hand this and I just never I thought no. That's not my personality and use sort of called it like you saw on and you know I mean you know you knew you were pissing people off and I think it took the herald management a little while to adjust. They approached me about doing the calm. And then when you go after people by Name and God knows house you know Miami. I mean in those days as it is now it was just gloriously corrupt and they were bad at it in cities like Chicago and New York and Philly L. E. we're graft and bribery had been around for generations and generations. They got in Kinda good at it and Miami was just clumsy cash in a bag you could buy them so cheap you know that it would just became and there was a comic aspect to the bribery and corruption. And I just l into that newsroom. At a time when when it was like you said it was so rich that you couldn't really lose it which literally shooting fish in a barrel and it still is when you say gloriously corrupt. What are the things that you're thinking In terms of richness of material because We're such a banana republic when it comes to this stuff. Well I just can't even count on Um my fingers. The number of videon county commissioners to get busted on bribery charges. You had the building in the Miami airport was basically a continuing criminal enterprise. And it's still going on to some extent I mean there's just so many things the court scandals you know you. You had the Santeria sacrifices on the steps of the courthouse I. I don't remember that where they had to have what they call the Buddha squad. Come in early before the courthouse open and clean up the chickens and other things were left because the the people putting curses on prosecutors judges and then another another city they look at you like you're mad but I mean that stuff really happened and and I think also the drug stuff to Dan. I mean because we were there before the Sonny Crockett era of it. I mean the the real cocaine whereas in the beginning and marijuana before that you just saw the amount of money and with the corruption go up a lot and sadly police departments Federal Police as well. I mean everything you now see on. TV in narcos Josh. I mean we lived through that we wrote about that stuff but the machine gun shootings on the turnpike that kind of stuff. It was astonishing then and looking back on it now I still. I'm astonished. I understood. It happens is there anything there that you're thinking of in particular. I just saw confessions of cocaine cowboy which doesn't job of sort of history. You have Miami and you you live at your in the middle of it. I can't think of a more fertile soil for a columnist. How would you explain the cocaine time or the most cocaine? Any time of Miami to people I would have to say late seventies early eighties and then you know you had the great influx of Colombian who came in to put their own network in place and take get away from the Cuban Americans. And that's when you had the violence breakout and you had every movie cliche the whole scarface thing with the guns with the crazy parties parties and I remember rolling stone asked me and L. S. or Smith to do a story about it when it first started happening. It's interesting how it holds up now as art. Ah The story but just what happened is now part. It's ingrained as part of the American criminal culture. It's like you mentioned the documentaries that they used to do on the Mafia. It's later it's Escobar. It's all the guys are investigative team at the Herald wrote about one of the funniest. There's you know. My mom lives in plantation until she died a couple years ago and after Escobar I was killed and they went after all his stuff. Not States lived in you know regular residential neighborhood and plantation expense came. They seized a condominium building. I think that Escobar. So his wife could claim she was his wife is widow was trying to get all the stuff you bought in the United States and the feds came right play Bass and they grow grab bars and he just was a condo investment. It's like any other investor. That's a good deal. I'm curious what you make of. What's happened in newspapers as someone who loves newspapers? Because you're talking about the Miami Herald Heyday like when there was a time at the Miami Herald. Wear the columnists s were so strong and the news was so strong that you could of made the argument that there wasn't a better newspaper in America and because of the place and the time and the the talent that was in that newsroom fan I mean just the people who went through that newsroom to go onto the New York Times in the Post and the Wall Street Journal. I just astonishing bunch of talent. And what's happened to the Herald is what's happening to newspapers all over the country. I mean the advertising model changed the Internet came along it was already in trouble. Sort of the newspaper. Subscription and advertising part of it was already failing with the Internet sort of pushed it over the edge so now you have many big cities just a shell of what used to be and you still have bright people working. They're working their butts off. But you know you don't have. The newspapers obviously thinner than it ever was just like magazines are for the most part. It hurts me to see how flimsy it is. Just it's agonizing. Here's the thing and I think you'll agree with you on this. It's a tragedy edgy. Now don't say that because of the number of people who've been out of work and and the fact that the staff at the small and everybody's struggling I say that it's a tragedy for the readers because what the cost of what's happening in the newspapers is the loss of local news coverage. We can find out what everyone find out what's happening Syria or what's happening happening. Washington and New York. But when you don't have enough reporters to put on the street or to send the county commission meetings or city commission meeting in Hialeah when you don't have neighborhood coverage neighborhood police coverage the people who are suffering because of the death of newspapers our readers. They're not getting the information they need for their own communities. It's not the big stories. Is the little stories that they need. And it's dissipate all over the country. It's it's tragic because and I travel quite a bit and I see I'll go through these airports and I'll pick pick up. You know what used to be a big fat newspaper in town and it's it's it's a joke and you're thinking how the people that live here make any decisions about and when you're voting about your taxes about zoning about all these things when days dot enough reporters to go to the meetings and say what happened and what have you observed served as really the entire media. Climate like what specifically happened in the last couple of years to newspapers where it seems like the American public isn't believing leaving. That media is evil that it deserves this fate because were filled with credibility problems. What you make of the last two years is what well you you know? When I started in newspapers the year I started was the year Richard? Nixon resigned from the White House. In the Watergate scandal. Ganilau was my first about two months after I became a reporter. He resigned so but we had lived through Watergate. And we listened to Nixon and agnew Another crook who so And listen to them blast depress for endlessly not necessarily the crude or the clumsy way that trump does but I mean. Nixon had speechwriter H.. Writer do it. Annual had speech writers..

"South beach sessions presented by Ziprecruiter Ziprecruiter. The smartest way to hire apologies. This is Dan Lebatardshow that I have made the schedule recently. A little bit difficult with South Beach Sessions. We should resume to normal right about now. Carl Ohio is one of my favorite authors from growing up. There was a heyday at the Miami Herald during the eighties nineties. Where so many good journalists came came through that place writing so much rich copy about so many different things and few braver than this guy in the middle of it? All Carl Hiaasen has a new book out. Assume assume the worst the graduation speech. You'll never hear one of the most difficult things to do is write funding. And he often did that. I wanted to sit down and talk to him a little bit about journalism and some of the things that he's experienced he lost a brother and a newsroom shooting the grieving goes on. The grieving will never end he. He is really honest on that subject and still wounded obviously so we will talk to him about that. But Carl Hiaasen if you do not remember. He wrote the Book Strip. Tease easy wrote a number of excellent funding books Most of them in Miami cartoonish but not that far from the truth and strip. Tease became a movie. We that wasn't any good but that book was really good. A Burt Reynolds was in that movie. I tried out for that movie. Final callback Stan. And I got the role and then Demi me more change the role so her daughter can be in it. Ouch yeah I I wanted to be in a movie with arm on Sunday so bad but you were playing a woman you know.
