The Limits and Possibilities of Journalism
"There's a convention in the world fiction known as the unreliable narrator, a character whose very much part of the story they're telling, and therefore, whose account cannot always be taken at face value because we know, they have interests at stake. It's a concept. One could fruitfully apply to journalism where interests and stakes like gender race, diginity or colonialism are rarely, if ever apparent and the reporting of news be that to audiences are even to reporters themselves. Would making those things explicit? Therefore make journalism unreliable given its long-standing complicity with the dominant social order. Maybe the better question to ask is how journalism can best grapple with its innate limitations. And yet as we see in the subtitle of Collison in Young's book, the possibilities of journalism also abound alternatives they argue have been largely generated outside the walls of mainstream outlets. Candice in Maryland. Thanks for sticking around for part two of this conversation. Amtrak at the pleasure to be here. Thanks for having us. Yeah, thanks for having us. Yeah, yeah, well. Thanks for indulging me here in having this extended conversation. I do WanNa get to what can be done to repair remediate reform. Rehabilitate retrofit I. Don't know I don't know what the right word is. You'll tell me, but I still have some other questions to get into and as you know candice I'm want to ask odd questions, and so why stop now so? Let me, ask you. Candice is racism fact. Or Not An I'll tell you why ask because every time I. See it. It's slapped inside quotation marks whenever it's reported on as if it was opinion, not fact. Is Racism factor not and if it's treated as if it isn't how telling, is that on the part of those who do so and such an interesting question points observation about journalism. That e racism ends up being a claim that make as opposed to an observable experience documented. You know with much precision increasingly over the last you know I don't know century. Really it, but it comes back to you know. We talked a little bit about the National Geographic. Apology right they needed a historian to go through all of their coverage and say actually was racist. At documented. Analytical opinion from somebody who had gone through gone through all of their reporting. When in fact, right? I mean one of the interesting points. They actually make in the story that they do on themselves. Is that at time when they were reporting on the crowning of a King Ethiopia? Black. Men and women in the United States could not actually get into a an a lecture at national. Geographic place because everything was segregated still at that time right so. You know it's the same thing with objectivity. If you think about the way that the history of journalism has been told, we talk about the rise of objectivity, and how it emerged in the nineteen twenties, we'll in the nineteen twenties who had the vote who was able to fully participate in democracy? When you start asking those kinds of questions, it becomes untenable that the way that journalism has perceived itself as recording a story that gets better over time when you know the experience of many minority, visible minority populations marginalized populations. Indigenous populations have. Definitely had a really uneven experience with democracy with colonialism, and you know, have often suffered, and not have their stories told in anything like mainstream news, in fact, in most cases at least when it comes to indigenous people. We've had to start our own. Our own media right? If you look at the way that media has evolved e- you see the way that indigenous people have taken it up at every single turn including when it came to to digital media

"collison" Discussed on How I Built This
"The first is its simplicity. It was originally seven lines of code and the second the youth of the two brothers who founded it when stripe launched in two thousand nine Patrick and John Carlson. Just twenty three and twenty one years old. The Carlson brothers grew up in rural Ireland. In County tipperary where their parents ran a small hotel. Very small Twelve bedrooms when he bought it and And we've got a house movie mother to away And so we grew up surrounded by farmland. The options were to play in the garden and did a lot of that And to play with like we did a lot of that and to read books and I look back at very fondly so your dad was running this hotel and were you guys involved with it at all like. Did you have to go there on the weekends and like change sheets and neom up the floors? What remembered you know Pat. I think it was powdery. Was Pretty four when this are I I I I was too and so you know there's only a two year old can only be so useful in the operations of the Of the hotel. I think my favorite memory is the You know the the ballroom floor. The highly polished surface That was awesome as a kid for for getting the kind of a length game in terms of who can slide the furthest much much as I'd like to imagine that we were extremely useful in in running the I think we were primarily. Hasn't had did you guys get into coding. How did that happen? I bought a book when I was thirteen. And I read it one Saturday and started writing some web pages and really. It was all certify. It was all downhill from there. Yeah and how about you John? Did you like seen Patrick get into coding? Did you think I won't try to? Yeah those definitely influence and I think I had an experience That a lot of people I know who've learned code had which is it's often an end result the pulls you along and you're making everything up as you go and you don't really understand you know you're copying things from a book or from website and typing them into a computer to get it to work and it seems like the two big motivations that people often have our websites or video games Answer in my case the initial website I made was not very good aftertaste. Patrick taught me a lesson in insecurity. I was probably fourteen at the time and I call it together. This website and there were vulnerabilities issues and stuff patrick. Then hacked this is to teach me a lesson on that. Okay so Patrick. I mention this because you're not going to mention this. The in two thousand and five. You won an award like the young scientist award of Ireland fifteen and Or sixteen or something like that. And I'm assuming and maybe weren't cognizant of this but we're I mean people must have said. Oh they're the collison boys you know. There's those two S- really smart boys. Were you aware that you guys were just really smart? I mean did did you would you? Would you wear the people? Were aware of the two of you when you were kids. I don't think they were when we were kids. I think actually this kind of science contest is that was really the first time where anyone might have had even the slightest. 'cause yeah to have kind of come across or heard of either of us What would you do? What was your invention or experiment or submission when you young scientist of Ireland. Well as we touched on I'd gotten really into programming and In particular become interested in this program language called Lisp and I was Kinda fascinated by list because it had been invented in the late fifties like really early in the history of technology. But it'd been kind of forgotten and ignored. The thing I worked on was a new version of less trying to kind of update it making it really straightforward to build sort of complicated applications and things like that and you know it's funny Tony kind of looking back on. It becomes clear for a very early stage. I was interested in working on tools or just going to building things that created leverage for other is in that basically the whole point of working on this programming language was to provide a tool would make it easier for others to build things. And so I. I didn't consciously think about it this way at the time. He kind of running stripe or whatever but basically all the things that I've worked. I'm kind of somewhat seriously. Having some ways been kind of tools for creation show in two thousand six. After Patrick won the young scientists of the year award he decided to go to the US to mit for college and two years later John would follow his brother to Cambridge to attend Harvard. But all the while the brothers were always working and conspiring ways to solve problems they come across the Internet for example why it seemed so hard to buy and sell secondhand things in an efficient way so one afternoon while mulling over some ideas at their local pub Patrick. John came up with a potential solution back end technology for Ebay users to manage inventory and they found two other guys who were working on a similar problem so they joined up with them moved to San Francisco and called their company optimistic. What automatic did was? It made it really easy to kind of manage and to list items for sale on existing platforms things like Ebay Or you know other marketplaces for for selling some of these items. You could use automatic to sort of track your inventory and to upload your items and to manage the listing photos and said basically who's a tool for people who are selling significant amounts of stuff online and so with software to help. Those people do that job better and the idea was kind of that could help us gain kind of one side of the marketplace such that over time we could come and then build a better user experience for customers so you guys build this thing and who is the public face of automatic because I mean obviously you guys are super smart and talented. But you know you were really young right like eighteen and sixteen years old so were you guys sort of staying in the background. And with the other founders. The public face was really the website right. The great line about how on the Internet. Nobody knows that you're you know. We kind of took full advantage of that but the company must have done pretty well right because I I guess just over a year after you've had your original idea I it sold reportedly for five million dollars. So was this strange to all of a sudden at that age land into that kind of money. I mean no. You didn't get five million yourself yet to divide it up and it's still you prominent pastors and yeah you still probably walked away with a couple of hundred thousand bucks. That was probably more money than you'd ever seen in Your Life. Who certainly more money than we'd ever seen in our lives. Yeah was enough money that it afforded a kind of freedom and really I think just kind of forced to the kind of reflection that had we been or had. Ibm kind of on. Just the treadmill of you go to college and you get your debris in his first job and so on such that I I can certainly imagine sort of a different version of my life or my career where I didn't do some of that thinking on until I was much older. Yeah so I guess this was like right around the time you were at at Harvard John and Patrick you eventually went back to mit for For a while right. That's exactly right in the fall of cousin nine and I should just prefaces was saying both of you with dropout and never return But in that in that brief moment of time where John Hubbard and Patrick you're at Mit Is that really this around? Two thousand nine is that were the early sort of idea That would become stripe began. That's interesting question. 'cause on the one hand stripe was the most interesting idea. We had come across during the course of automatic in this It was the single hardest thing about developing an Internet. Business was just the the business side of the accepting money. So the pain inside. Yeah it's and it seemed like a really important problem at and we thought there should be something really easy. Folks developers instance at up to people started to starting accepting money but on the other. Hand what we know right. We're we're these two college students and so maybe.

Stripe: Patrick and John Collison
"Ghairat on today. Show how two brothers from Ireland wrote seven lines of computer code and built it into a nine billion dollar business. So the holy grail for venture capitalist is the Elusive Unicorn. This is what hundreds or thousands of business school graduates working at venture firms. Search for every day they said through pitch after pitch powerpoint after powerpoint hoping that today will be the day that one of these pitches will be the next Uber Airbnb and Opportunity. So rare so coveted. It's like a Unicorn well. Welcome to today's story because stripe is basically a Unicorn With Extra Whip Cream Cherries on top. This was a company. They went from zero to a hundred million dollars in value in a matter of months and today barely seven years after its founding. Stripe is valued at more than nine billion dollars. So now your next question. What is stripe? Well Stripe isn't a thing you buy. It's not like under armour shirts or worby parker glasses but it is. What allows you to buy those things online if you use instant cart or lift or kickstarter or even if you shop online at target you're using stripe it's basically the back end technology that allows you to safely. Enter your credit card details and pay for what you want to things that make stripe very different from its
NBA championship odds: Lakers still lead pack despite quiet trade deadline; Clippers improve chances
"Did you make of the two teams? How do you feel about them currently? Wow Oh well I I I I stand by. I think the clippers have long time then the favorites. I think the way that the Lakers have played This season and how they've consistently consistently performed Dwight Howard has been a pleasant surprise. I think Kyle Kuzma with the injury to start off the season. He he hasn't really gun the things that they would like. These are very good contributor. But I think that the clippers with all the management and and Paul George Missing Time and some Injuries and you look at where they are there. Second Right now and for me. I think that the clippers are the best team right are they. Are the team that come at at the end of the day you're going to have to go through in order to try and win a championship. Even though the Lakers have the best record and it looks like the Lakers are GonNa have home court At at this point in time if it were to start today I still feel like you know the clippers. The team that you're GONNA have to be in order to win the whole thing Richard. How all surprising that? The rockets decided to go full monty. There Bison not only are we gonNA run small lineups. We won't even carry a gun on the roster who would allow us to run any sort of other type lineups. Well it's a at this point in time. If you look at Dantonio you look at Dell Maury winter. We've we've had they not gone all in on whatever they believe right. What do they have to lose? They've been criticized up and down and make pulled off some pretty impressive trade getting in Chris. Paul getting in Russell Westbrook. They've done some really really good things to pair With with James Harden James Harden continuingly improved his offense of game. But it's like I'm not surprised anymore. It's like they look at their team. And they're like the way we're structured right now. We're probably up for a first or second round loss What can we do to really shocked at? How can we try and change things up? And they made them moved. ooh They believed that adding Covington and giving up Cappella and they just WanNa go all small ball kind of like what you would see from the Golden State Warriors for for a time So I'm not surprised by it. I think that you know everyone out. There is fighting for their job. I think Daryl Morey I think I think You look at Dan Tony think these guys are low key fighting for their jobs so if they know that first or second round loss possibly could be the end to their tenure. So why not try and go all whatever you believe. Richard Jefferson hanging out with this year. Makes you check them out today. Five o'clock Indiana Toronto. ESPN mean is also in studio with us as well by the way. You're listening to Los Angeles. So Richard Let me ask you this about what Brian said yesterday specifically in regards to that game like he he kind of talked about their lack of focus on defense. Where do you think the Lakers can get better on defense? Can they do it. Internally you have again you have some talented players and I. I always proceed very cautiously when you have a game like that and everyone wants to run and talk about it and break it down like look Russell. Westbrook had a great great game. Houston shot the ball extremely well if you send shot the ball like that against anybody on any given night. They're going to win that game Even Dan Tony said in his interview. He's like hey I understand what we're doing is different It all has to do with whether or not these guys will buy in and tonight was a big step that they would have gone out and got him blasted in a D had forty five right an twenty six against them. Everybody in that Houston Rocket Locker. Room would be questioning. What's what's going on? They would be getting murdered by the media. It would be going crazy but they were fortunate to get that win in La which very hard place to play and now. Everyone's questioning the Lakers. Well look I believe this. I believe that the Lakers are great regular season team. I think that last night they should've stayed with the White Howard. You can't Anthony Davis if there's a difference between being like having your numbers be dominant and actually being dominant and physically dominant. Anthony Davis just. Wasn't that Anthony. Davis Davis is not an again. I hate to talk about. What player isn't because he is a million great in every anybody would want them on their team but he's not a guy that just going to low post blocks doc band you up and then go and shoot a five-foot Hook shot and don't because he worked position that's why he runs the floor so well so he can get that early early post up in a great position and it's harder to guard but in the postseason when it becomes half court basketball? That's what the Houston Rockets are depending on when it becomes a half half halfcourt basketball game and they can spread it out and just have Russell James go to work and kick it out to more shooters so everyone had their theory. It's just a matter of WHO's going to be able to impose their will Richard One of the things that That's happening for the Lakers. This year is that when Lebron plays the offense is is tremendous right there. They're one of the best offensive teams out there. But when he doesn't play when he's not on the floor I should say that offense becomes very anemic even when Anthony Davis was an. MVP candidate in his own right is on the floor. And it reminded me of the years in In Cleveland the three years that Love Irving and and Lebron were together. When Lebron didn't play that team wasn't just not a great team not wasn't just a below five hundred they were awful and given that you've been on the inside you've been on a Lebron James Team? Can you explain to me how that is. How talented players? Once you remove this one guy turned into a bad basketball team. I think it's it's style of play. It's continuity I think that's something that it's it's weird because Lebron James is always you typically been healthy. She's always played in seventy five or more games except for last year due to the groin injury. So it's like this is the guy that each up eighty ninety percent of like court time. So you're what what you're really referencing is like non-core time and even then comes the postseason. This is a man that's going to go from playing thirty seven minutes a night thirty eight. He's going to go up to like forty three forty four minutes a night. 'cause there's no bags and there's no practices for most of his energies just using games. So what you're really talking about is how do you play Good Basketball for eight to ten minutes in it for twelve minutes and that can be tough to find that continuity. It's tough because it's such a small sample size right and yes it's a small. It's a large sample size is when you look at how often it happens. But it's very very difficult for coaches to be like how we're GONNA play for this ten to twelve minutes when the broncos out of the game because when he's in the game everything's everything's perfect. Everything's runs great room and I think that's the challenge. The coaches have a lot of people are talking about Darren. Collison coming in and then interrogating him bats. That's the challenge and it's and it's been a long time. The bron James Challenge is how do we play that 'cause they had with Kyrie Kyrie is a great score but it's like when Bronco go out of the game game that was an opportunity for Kyrie to really explore and really play his game and get his rhythm will Kyrie's rhythm might not necessarily be the rhythm for the the other guys on the court and I thought knock on Kyrie. If just like broad had the ball handed Kyrie was basically a two guard. Then Kai Bronco Ga.. The game in Cairo would become the point guard. But this was an opportunity to get going scoring and maybe throw the ball into Kevin Love. which when you had the surrounding guys there wasn't an offense? There wasn't a continuity beauty for us to play through so there's good still Lebron and there's challenges to Lebron. I wouldn't even call that bad but I think this final stretch is going to be key but understand. He's going to play more minutes in the postseason. So you can't really say like hey we need to figure out what we're GONNA do when he's out of the game because that's just realistically he's going to be in the game Ormeau. Richard Jefferson with this year on the Sodano show on ESPN. This actually leads perfectly into my next question. This is good chemistry right here. These three guys. So Rondo they have Rondo. Problem is a net negative player. He's been that for seven seasons now but to a means point it falls off a cliff. He's usually usually the guy that has to lead that second unit. I don't think they can afford to play him anymore. To be honest with you what do you do if you do agree with me. What do you do with Ronda how do you how do you manage? Rondo at this point Well I I think there's there's two components there's an on the court and then there's a locker room right. There's a locker component and it's like a like say what you want about Rondo. He's a very dynamic guy on and off the court so you WanNa make sure that Rondo understands what your is your team goals are. I think Rondo is in a very different space. And he was years and years ago whether it was in Dallas when I played with them or leaving Boston I think Rondos one of those guys that in this moment right here they need to find. I I think that's Darren Collison being. It's so big the need to find one more guy that can compliment that second unit And so yes do but you gotta look at what can you do. He's a net negative guy adding Rondo very very rare. But no one really questions Kenney still play is he's still a contributor when you're just looking at the second unit and when I tell you that the six years prior that's one thing this year I I mentioned it early.

The day of the trade deadline won't say we sat on the runway for over two and a half hours while we're on Twitter at the time Antoine. Jamison got traded Byron Mullins got. So these guys are getting off the plane on LAX runway because they had been traded in the final trae that was supposed to go down with myself and Darren collison for Iman Shumpert in Raymond Felton.

So for people to say that, you know, they're professionals you just need to wait until you're in that situation. You never know how you're gonna react. And I want to say I was probably twenty nine or thirty at the time maybe a little bit older. And it still shook me, you know, what I mean? So these kids are in their early twenties playing for the Lakers playing with LeBron. So it's hard to really say, you're should be a pro and that shouldn't affect you. Because it's not true. Matt who were you upset with owner team player? Coach who will dock was everything at the time. You know, that's back when doc was GM. Right. President and head coach you know, what I mean?

Like, you take it personal as a player you said because it's more than just you leaving and putting on a different uniform. I have kids I have a family. I got to go to a city auto possibly want to go to. So a lot plays into that. I mean who would want to go from L A to New Orleans, you know, with all due respect.

Telling our Adrian world Sharansky, quote that group is so special that whole group from twenty ten until I left there. It was special.

Collison spending fifteen years in the association Durant, is credited collison leadership with helping his transition into the NBA when he was drafted in two thousand eight and while there were obviously bad feelings when Durant departed for the warriors thunder guard Dennis Schroder earlier on ESPN radio saying, okay, see fans, should appreciate Durant's appearance. He did a lot for. Okay. She can't forget that. I've been in Atlanta for five years. So I kinda see what he did. You know, I wasn't into league. But I think. I hope they cheer for him.

But we going to see. Oh, no. Insiders quickly saying that fans should not be reading into Durant's appearance in March. It's a one time return to honor Nick collison.

"There are a handful of UCLA alums in the league that wouldn't pick up the phone to help Howland because they hated Kevin love. Russell westbrook. Ryan zone now. Well, I mean. But I mean, you look at the Darren collison, you even Jordan farmer when he played for the Lakers, Aaron a flow all those dudes, Kevin Love's the best, you know. Kevin love is a great guy. I mean by donated a gym to UCLA or. Now that how but Kevin love if Earl got that job. He'd be a great would be on the phone and Lonzo has already said Lonzo who's very popular with kids. Do you realize lines go to UCLA or do you just play there? I think both. But like you realize lonzo's eighth in all star voting. Hey, I'm you talk about a a popularity driven vote. I mean. The kids love him. He would pick up the phone. If Earl got the job so that that's a strong reason to consider about building community. And that's what that really helps college programs when you go to an Arizona game. And they show all the guys in the Jumbotron played in the league, and you feel part of that family and Greg because you say basketball fan, I know you wanna feel that community again Patino feels like an outsider and feels like he's using that community. I don't think he would be embraced at all. No. I don't think Patino would be the right call either. But I think he's getting it. No, I don't think so either. But to maybe this goes towards John's point a little bit UCLA kind of recruits itself when you go to UCLA you're getting your automatically getting a better shot at being a top five draft pick. If you so it doesn't matter if you go to a little school and your one and done one and done at UCLA means more than one and done at Davidson or one and done means UNC Wilmington. But it doesn't mean as much as one and done at Kentucky meal. Tom doesn't mean Lonzo was able to become a number two pick. Because he was so good at UCLA. And that so that actually means something where I also don't think that URL Watson is the right call either mostly because he hasn't done anything that warrants having the job. You don't know how you recruits, you don't know what his style of plays. You don't know anything about him. Whereas you do know where Joe shocking part young players. You know? So I think you know, that about her own he seems to be a hard worker, and he kind of stayed in the league as long as he did. With the limited skills. He has that to me says, your hardware. I'd love to talk to some of his players in Phoenix. You know, the guys that were, you know, in the venture day-by-day Hiram, and that makes sense because there's a job vacancy there. So if you have job vacancy in your life, you know, you need to fill that position. Posting your position to job sites and waiting and waiting and waiting for the right people to see L is not how you going to get it done. You're gonna fill that position with ZipRecruiter. Because they knew there was a smarter way. They built the platform that finds the right job candidates for you. It's so difficult nowadays to go through potential candidates for job position you need fill and not find the right people. It's frustrating can slow down the goals you're trying to achieve in twenty nine thousand nine ZipRecruiter.

When it comes to fixing Facebook, were on Mark Zuckerbergs timetable
"You're listening to the spoken edition of the San Francisco Chronicle. When it comes to fixing Facebook. We are on Mark zuckerberg's timetable by Owen Thomas from business. Welcome back to tech chronicle. If you don't really subscribe to the newsletter move fast and sign up move, slowly and fix things. Whatever happened to move fast and break things in Facebook's third quarter earnings call with analysts, Tuesday, Mark Zuckerberg made one thing. Clear fixing Facebook is going to take time q. George Harrison singing, I've got my mind set on you and the chorus it's gonna take time to do it. Right. As the earnings revealed suckered has money a whole lot of spending money to fight fake news, spam and election interference. He has said Facebook will hire twenty thousand workers to review posts the goal though. He told analysts is to have Facebook artificial intelligence spot. Pablo medic posts before anyone has to flag or review them. He indicated that it. Might have this figured out by the end of next year for the citizens of Brazil that's a bit late vaunted war room set up to monitor elections. With a Brazilian flag posted on the wall, signaling the country's importance shutdown some fake accounts used to send spam. But the end result the election of far-right candidate jar Bolsonaro in campaign fueled by conspiracy theories sent on the Facebook owned what's app messaging service suggests that it has made less progress than it claims sucker. Berg has a polished talking point for this. It's an arms race and the company has to keep up with evolving behavior, if it's an arms race, what about this idea, why doesn't Facebook unilaterally disarm Facebook could shut down at service outside the US, Canada and Europe and save it self a lot of headaches. The worst social media fueled disaster seemed to happen in places like man, mar Sri Lanka, India, and Brazil that would slash base books. Vaunted user numbers. From two point two seven billion to six hundred seventeen million, but it would cost only twenty seven percent of its revenue if anything Facebook's profit margins who would probably increase contending with lies deception and state-sponsored manipulation and a smaller part of the globe. But presumably cost less and work better than trying to do it for the entire world sucker. Berg has suggested that if western governments were to reign in Facebook Chinese social media giants would move in to fill the void. And so what Facebook may twenty seven dollars sixty one cents per user in the US and Canada in the third quarter in its emerging markets, where advertisers are far scarcer it only made a dollar eighty two per user or about sixty cents a month as a business. Facebook would be better off figuring out how to squeeze more dollars out of the data. It's American users surrender with shrug it with baseless flack too, but suck Aberg has his mind set on connecting the world, even if that means leaking up all of its unruly. Contentious bad actors, good luck with that quote of the week. We have willingly now for more than a decade given up our most personal data that is the real guts the bloodstream for AI. You know, our personal data is the most valuable commodity in the world right now.
