"Point this week here with one Smith, I'm John Stonestreet. You know, there's a lot of stories this week where we're not going to be able to get to all of them. But it's a story that happened this week. But it's really part of a recurring story that we're seeing over and over and over again where comments that were made ten twenty years ago are being brought back up and thrown at celebrities. I mean, not just liberties, but political leaders the governor northbound comments, for example, something that he did back in college at a time in a place where yeah, it would have been edgy to do what he had done, but not the same level of complete condemnation that is part of today's culture and for better. I mean, you know, there's no room for any kind of racism in our culture, and there shouldn't be Tucker Carlson before he became one of the most popular Fox News host did a lot of calling into some radio shows a lot of which were kind of good old boy radio shows, and you're from Charlotte. Warren. Probably couple those were based out of Charlotte. I think I remember it was wasn't there. John boy and Billy show. Absolutely, John boy and Billy show based at the big show is like all the Bank show faced in Charlotte, North Carolina. Yup. Is that still going on? Absolutely. It is though I don't listen to the typically the radio stations that it's on occasionally when I'm traveling. And I don't know the radio stations in a local down. I'll flip around the channels and find him there. And. Yeah, absolutely. They're still around man. I remember catching them outside of Chattanooga. And to be clear that's not one of those shows that really pushed the line. I mean, we often think a guys like Howard Stern. And you know, there was a guy called the grease, man. Now, the these were the sort of shows that I think Tucker Carlson apparently made at least more than one appearance on as a guest, and a clip that surfaced said some things that, you know, just off color, and instead, and there were two sets of comments. That's be clear. The I said sure, I remember what the I said even was in context. Probably not as bad as the way, it was pitched the second set of comments. However. Were directed towards miss teen. South Carolina contestant a lot of these contestants were sexualize. There's the bikini contest. Basically, this was kind of viral because this contestant answered a question in a really incoherent way. Do you? Remember that warrant news? I do. Yeah. It was I felt four because he I mean, there's no question that she was completely incoherent. She was a deer caught in the headlights. But you know, John you, and I are now talking on the radio, and I'm not saying that we're great at it. But it does take some skill. And it does take some presence of mind and preparation, and you know, she was a young girl put in a tough situation. She messed up the problem issue. Messed up on national television and became a laughing stock. Yeah, she did. And so they were laughing at her. They were making fun of her. But then there was a quick turn to sexualizing her and talking about this. And we're talking about, you know, a teenager. I mean, it's really unacceptable. What was said something you and I would never want set about our daughters. Hopefully, we heard anybody talk like that we would call them out. And there's two questions at emerge from this Tucker Carlson responded to the initial criticism with basically, you know, go back and read it and make sense of it. And not really an apology. I haven't seen a response to the second set of allegations yet. I'm not sure how he's responded. It just seems it's amazing. How far I think just a clear mea culpa. I was wrong. I shouldn't have said this forgive me would go. Now. I don't think it would get Tucker Carlson off the hook. Because I think he's part of the right and the progressive left and controls the media to a level where there's the, you know, it's you get forgiven on one side of the hour. You don't get forgiven on the other side of the see that over and over and over, and that's the reality of it. But why can't we just apologize? Why can't we just confess? That's an important thing that Christians need to be able to do. Yeah. I think that's exactly right. John not even though I know Tucker Carlson, and I like him in some ways. What he said was beyond the pale. It was wrong. He should have just apologized. And I still wish he does that. But I think you're right. We are in such an environment that even apologizing is becoming tough to do if you're a public figure because if Tucker apologizes a lot of his supporters will say he caved that he gave in that he a compromised and a lot of his political enemies will use his apology against him. There's just so little good faith in the conversations that are taking place in the public square that it makes it really really hard. Now. I want to be clear, I don't think there should be an excuse. I think that when you make a mistake you need to apologize. I can tell you that as a journalist whenever I ride something that is an error. I write a correction if I discover it later, and so I think that doesn't give us a pass on not apologizing. But I do understand why it has become. So hard. Yeah. It's something we just need to go back. And remember in at time of we know that it's going to be an unpopular thing to do on one side. It's going to be used against you on the other side. Yeah. Tucker Carlson can't win. We're gonna get hate mail saying, you know, don't turn on our guys. I get all that my point though, is if we said something wrong, we say we were wrong. Yup. Not because it will go over. Well, but because it's the right thing to do. And it just seems to me like a million times in this cultural moment, we gotta learn to walk in shoe gum at the same time. We can't be guilty of the drunk all dilemma of, you know, letting our people off the hook because there are side. Now, again, I don't think the left has treated this fair on the left does treat this fair. And also, by the way, brings up a whole an interesting conversation. And this is something I really struggle with. And is there a statute of limitations on these things? Now, somebody doubles down on their comments. Then obviously, it's no longer a past issue. It's a president, Hugh. But you think about, you know, do we really David French is written interest? Things about this over the last couple of weeks. I mean, do we really want a culture where instead of debating ideas? We're just digging up dirt on each other from twenty years ago. Now, some dirt needs to be dug up and it needs to be revealed. And if it turns out to be true and somebody doesn't own up to it. And I mean, this all becomes part of the the calculations. But man, it is a very difficult culture to live into relate to each other in if we're basically one that just consistently looks twenty years in the past to find things to hang over our heads. Yeah. I think that statute of limitations question John is a really important one. And I actually think an important consideration in answering that question is what you just said to what extent is the person repentant to what extent has the person apologize to what extent has their life since they did that thing that was so wrong been different. Which is of course, the evidence of true repentance. So I think that as you say, especially for people in the public eye the people for whom we depend upon there. Character to be of a certain level because they have a position that requires character. I think we should look into their pass. But on the other hand, I think that if they made a mistake twenty years ago, and they were truly sorry for it was a one time thing that they've lived alive over the last two decades that is evidence of that repentance. I think that we should have a very different posture towards that person. Then someone who's attempted to cover it up. And when it is revealed doesn't apologize. Yeah. There's a number of factors in the equation. I think we can learn from the apostle Paul. I mean, I was the chief of centers. And then we can learn from Chuck Colson, you know, who just acknowledged that power was seductive, and it corrupted him, and but in Christ he was a new person and just acknowledging it is just a huge step forward. This is going to be an ongoing conversation. We haven't solved this problem in this discussion. And there will be another story probably next week.

"That's charlotte warren gash talking to claudia hammond roy down talking bbc health and science reporter helen breaks now tell me a bit more about this than hopefully reassure me here we're talking about deborah from a defunct chinese space station it's expected to crash down to earth pretty much at any moment but it seems very difficult to predict the exact time and location tell me more that's right it sounds like a hollywood movie doesn't it so yes it was lost contact within twenty sixteen this space station and is gradually being losing outta chewed and drifting back down towards earth so it should come down anytime around now and it will end to the atmosphere and the vast majority of it will burn up but it could be possible that some bits actually full to earth and current thinking is that it will fall to earth somewhere between forty three degrees north and forty three degrees south so that's a big area diz stretching from nebraska in the north us down to tasmania in the south you'll probably may welcome down in the asian but we just don't know so some people may get a few of it depending on where they are the time of day visibility conditions would just be a little light in the sky and what is this station what was it tian gong space station launched by china in twenty eleven their first space station that got another one up there this one really was a sort of test technology for the future and there were few missions up there with crew on board but it will come down fairly soon the chances though of it actually hitting a human a very slim so some of the figures we've been given ten million times smaller than the yearly charms of being hit by lightning or less than warning one trillion chumps of actually hitting a human being so not too much to worry about really got school so we don't need to be wearing our hardhats necessarily so other things are much more likely to hit us or kill us than this chinese x spacecraft.
