No, social media isn't biased against conservatives

No, social media isn't biased against conservatives

"Yesterday the CEO's of Google facebook and twitter testify before the Senate and a hearing that was supposed to be about a fundamentally important Internet law called section two thirty. It's about liability protection for tech companies. Instead, the hearing ended up being about how much power big tech companies hold and how they wheeled it. Republicans accused social media platforms of Anti Conservative bias Democrats said, platforms aren't doing enough to curb the spread of disinformation. It went about like this Mr Gordon. Who the hell elected you and put you in charge of what the media are allowed to report and what the American people are allowed to hear issue is not that the company's before today are taking too many posts. Now issue is that the leaving too many dangerous post up. That was senators, Ted Cruz, and Ed. Markey and we now have none other than marketplace tax molly would here to talk about this and I asked her. Is it true that tech platforms have an anti conservative bias? There is no evidence to show that platforms have an anti conservative bias, and in fact, there is research as of this very week that says that facebook actually. Promotes right wing content to the point that it is its own sort of right wing echo chamber, and in fact, Kevin Roose at the new. York Times set up basically an automated system that every single day posts the top performing links on US facebook pages in the last twenty, four hours and every single day. The vast majority in fact are from right wing new sources. It does though stem from argument that I've heard not just from the right. But also from the left that these companies do wield a lot of power, they can take whatever they want down and that people want to know why you know when it happens that they should be more transparent with their their moderation policies and processes. How much common ground is there on that I mean, that is absolutely true. These companies should be more transparent about how their processes work and unfortunately because they have not been over and over and over it's basically open the door to the kind of frankly posturing and performance that you see every time these two use appear before Congress and it's only gotten worse I think that that would be. In some ways, a fairly easy fix. These are our rules they are enforced consistently and with regularity, and that would end a lot of these arguments but unfortunately, the platform so far have not done that now in the actual last days before a presidential election, they're kind of scrambling in front of all of us real time to figure out solutions and it's obviously not working. No one's happy with it. One of the other issues we heard about brought up mostly by Democrats was about disinformation specifically about how much responsibility tech platforms have to take it down. What did we learn once again, we didn't learn much from. All of the shouting but I think what we're learning is that increasingly this conversation which a lot of people believe is about section two thirty and this liability shield of the tech platforms have related to what their users post is not actually what this is about. It's about disinformation and so far we've seen proposals from the GOP to alter the way that section two thirty works that would arguably punish platforms for not allowing disinformation to spread. and. Then on the other side of the equation, you have certainly Democrats but also researchers, academics, journalists saying these companies have allowed disinformation to spread to a dangerous degree and they need to do more to stop it on both the advertising side and the content side. Here's the thing that is a little bit tricky to discuss a lot of the time when conservatives in Congress say that conservative content is being censored. The content that they're referring to is disinformation. They give you know frequently the example of the commentators diamond silk who have had their content taken down because it promoted misinformation around the corona virus as one example, and so we find ourselves in this tricky position where increasingly there are there people in the GOP who are embracing? Cunanan, in back just this week, Stephen Miller the White House political adviser reportedly told journalists that Abidin administration would enable widespread sex trafficking of children that is a Q. and non talking point is conspiracy theory that has spread on the Internet and so because we're in this moment where we're right before the election where disinformation has played a huge role in the two thousand sixteen election and in elections since it is really impossible to separate the politics. From the conversation around speech particularly when so many of these talking points are impact themselves misinformation or did. Researchers. Just re re released evidence that president trump himself is the single largest source of misinformation around covid nineteen in the coronavirus, and that makes us a tricky conversation to have because it feels partisan. But if you agree that truth is truth and certain things are true in certain things aren't then it is sort of a nation that has to be had.

"So let's stay with that because you're challenger Kevin O'Connor says that by supporting things like the green new deal, you are alienating moderates and conservatives which contributes to gridlock in Washington you just mentioned the vice president in his debate with President trump he did parse his support for environmental reform versus the specific green new deal pretty carefully that show that O'Connor has a point. No it doesn't because He supports Donald Trump for president of the United States and he and trump is the denier in chief and the last thing we need is Massachusetts the send another vote to Washington to help donald trump and his climate policies which by the way is climate policies out rollback fuel economy sentence rollback energy efficiency standards, rollback protections for the environment build the Keystone Pipeline Ram through pipelines through the State of Massachusetts of where they there is overwhelming public objection to them. So that's where Kevin O'Connor has planted himself politically as a supporter of of Donald Trump in his policies whereas the Democrats are united. On climate change we believe in the science we believe that urgent action must be taken and and the vice. President Biden actually has asked Alexandra Casio Cortez and the sunrise movement to be partners with him in drafting the the the the new proposals which he has released, which by the way include. Reaching one hundred percent renewable electricity a by the at twenty, thirty five, which is very consistent with the green new deal. So enormous progress has been made where united we believe in the science we believe. That we need to take urgent action and we believe that we can create millions of new jobs of the Republicans are trying to defend the old coal burning oil generating a issues. We're trying to create a whole new generation of renewable energy jobs, the millions, and to make sure that minority communities frontline communities are at the front of the line to get those jobs and to have the new facilities be constructed in their communities. So we will Kevin O'Connor, your opponent does say he doesn't support all of trump's policies, but we will press him on that. When we have the conversation with him, I wanNA talk about a different policy issue. There is daylight between you and he on we've been talking about police and police reform for the rest of the hour earlier on the show O'Connor says that police have been undermined by calls around the country for disarming and defunding you have called for disarming polices some weapons such as tear gas rubber and plastic bullets. And that has angered police unions including the Massachusetts Police Association which used to support you. But now accuses you of being quote out of touch with the American people and quote where do you stand on law enforcement and police reform today and we we have about three minutes left in our conversation..

"A year ago polls showed Massachusetts Senator Ed Markey down double digits in the fight to protect his Senate seat from Democratic challenger Congressman Joe Kennedy some prognosticators. Thought he might just step aside while he didn't instead Markey beat Kennedy by eleven points in last month's primary. Thanks in large part to a wave of support from young progressive voters and a savvy social media operation next up general election and a challenge from Republican attorney Kevin O'Connor. Speaking to both Senate candidates here on the show beginning today with Senator Ed Markey Senator Welcome Back Radio Boston. Thank you thanks for having me on? So senator market. You've in Congress for over four decades. Now, I think it is fair to say that your public persona as an elected official in both the Commonwealth of the country is markedly different than it was say six years ago or twelve years ago. Do you feel you have started a new chapter? Are you different in some way? Well I don't I. Don't think that my position on issues has changed at all. So for example I've been. The leader in Congress on climate change for years you know the The author of the legislation increase the fuel economy standards of the vehicles which we drive, which is still the largest single reduction in greenhouse gases of any. Law of a pass in any country of the author of the law increasing efficiency of appliances no air conditioning refrigeration of also a dramatic reduction in greenhouse gases it obviated the need for upwards of two hundred. coal burning to ever have to be built in our country. So I'm very proud of my work over the years What happened? was that when I introduced the green new deal with Alexandria or Cossio Cortez in order to start a movement to make sure that we took the urgent action, which is necessary to deal with the crisis, it, it created much more political attention. To the issue, but it didn't reflect. A. Change at all in the views that I had expressed, and in fact, with certain extent, my achievements in the past were the basis for a whole new younger generation of activists join in a partnership with me in this race because they knew that there was an authenticity to what I had been doing throughout the course of my entire career on that issue and same thing. Guns to gun safety legislation on healthcare provision. So so I think to a certain extent it's not so much reinvention as much as being rediscovered as someone who had worked on these issues over the years. Is that Is that enough to okay let me backtrack. We are in a time of such generational disconnect that the phrase. Okay. boomer right is one of the phrases of the last couple of years and yet your support. So strong among young people is you're you're backing of the green new deal is that enough to explain that or do you think there is something else going on? That is worth paying attention to and learning from I think that the green new deal is a part of it but I think that the more that young people came to learn about. My successful efforts to beat the NRA to have the CDC. Do Research at on the causes of gun violence and ask Society for the first time in its beginning this year and I was successful on that.

If Republicans fill Ginsburg's vacancy, Democrats should pack the court — and more

"Democrats in the Senate say that Republicans like Mitch McConnell and Lindsey Graham are violating the Republican precedent, they said in 2016 when they said no Supreme Court vacancy should be filled. In an election year. Devil BBC. Suzanne Songs will caught up with Massachusetts Senator Ed Markey, who agrees with that statement. We are about to engage in historic battle on the floor of the United States, Senate and Marquis says Democrats are ready for it. The Democrats will use any procedural tool, which we have to slow down the nomination way will fight as hard as we can, he says. When Democrats controlled the Senate, they'll abolish the filibuster and add more justices to the Supreme Court. And he doesn't think Republicans understand the electoral consequences of rushing to fill the seat if they violate their own principles, saying that there should be no new Supreme Court justices in an election year in the American people simultaneously see what's at stake.

"J f dot org's I'm Jen white. We're discussing the latest on the now mostly virtual campaign trail with Reid Wilson, national correspondent at the Hill. We're going to head to the Midwest in a moment, but first I want to check in on an important primary here in the East. Massachusetts State primary was yesterday Senator at Markey won against representative Joe Kennedy, making it the first time a Kennedy ever lost in Massachusetts. Why's this race? A big deal? Well, it's It's an interesting development here and unbelievable that a Kennedy has never lost a race in Massachusetts until now, But Ed Markey is a you know, he's been in office for a very long time, and Joe Kennedy challenged him as a way to sort of turn the page to a new generation. But strangely enough, Ed Markey became sort of an icon to the youngest set of activists that generation Z and millennial activists for his work on things like the Green New Deal. He's the Senate author. Of of that bill, and oddly enough, the old guy who has been there forever became the liberal insurgent If you will, in his in a race in which he was the incumbent, you don't see that very often. And it's an interesting example. Now that maybe the allure of Camelot is succumbing to the urgency of climate, a CZ one activist put it on Twitter this morning. And ah, remarkable race, one that in which Marquis was pulling behind until just the last few months, Andi, he came back and won a race that not a lot of people expected him to. Well, let's head over to Michigan, Michigan historically votes Blue, but the state gave Trump a narrow win in 2016 and now two key state in this year's election, So let's check in on Michigan with Zoey Clark. She's the program director at Michigan Radio. One of our across America partner stations. She's also co host of Michigan radios. It's just politics show Rizzo. It's great to have you here. Oh, it's good to be here, Jen. Thanks And we're also here with you. What's the mood like where you live leading up to 2020. You can comment on our Facebook page tweet us at one A or drop us an email at one A W A. M u Not orc. Now, Zoe. There are a lot of eyes on Michigan because of what happened during the last presidential election. Take us back to 2016 and tell us how it played out there. Yeah. I mean, it was shocking for I think both voters as well is the political pundits and the political class is Reed. You know, mentioned the Poles were off quite a bit, in fact that it looks like this was going to be a state that Hillary Clinton I don't want to say would easily win, but they're just the idea of Trump winning Michigan after six presidential cycles of the state going blue I was just sort of unbelievable. And yet it happened now. It was very close, though Jenn 11,000 votes less than 11,000 votes ended up being the margin of error, and I will continue to say that it was less than 2016. Then Michigan voted for Trump. But that Michigan did not vote for Hillary Clinton thie sort of coalition that Barack Obama had put together in a eight and 12 In 16 250,000 voters just in certain areas did not turn out for Hillary Clinton that it turned out for Obama in 12. So what are you hearing from voters on the ground this time around? Are they enthusiastic about either candidate? I would say The enthusiasm is about Trump mostly, but its enthusiasm either to vote for him or to vote against him. Now that's not to say that you know, Biden isn't a popular choice among Democrats or at least some Democrats here in Michigan, but but the folks that I talked to it is pure enthusiasm, either to vote for Trump again, or to vote him out of the office. And we saw that in 18 here in Michigan during the mid Term election. It was interesting Democrats who ran for Ah, election and 18 really didn't run against Trump. In fact, many of them didn't even really talk about the president. But it was very clear that for voters it was sort of about sending a message right to D. C and we saw a Democratic wave here in Michigan in 18. And AH lot of smart folks are predicting that same kind of democratic motivation and enthusiasm will be seen in November. So what are Republicans trying to do to keep the state red? Yeah, It's a great question, And it appears right now that they're sort of taking. You know what President Trump is doing right? This idea of of safety and civil unrest and talking about You know, being unsafe in the suburbs. I was talking to a very, very smart pollster Rich Uba, and I've got to just quote him because he said that he thinks every time that you know Trump is talking about the so called, you know, terrible rioting, inner cities, he said. He quote things of Regina, George and Mean Girls saying, Stop trying to make fetch happen. It's not going to happen. That you know that this is just sort of a one note rallying cry right now, and what he sees is he doesn't think that's gonna work. And so we'll see whether you know Republicans here in Michigan decide to continue to do that. You know, the issue is sure there have been protests in Michigan like there have been, you know, throughout the country over the past months, but you know, we haven't seen what we have in other states and certainly don't think there's a huge fear of Of violence that is, you know, pulsating through our state right now, What is November 3rd looking like for voters at this point in terms of casting their ballot, is there Ah, clear message about how people can cast either by mail or by going to the ballot bags. What are you hearing so far? Oh, you went there. So let's open this Pandora's box of of drama. So in 18, Michigan, voters passed a constitutional amendment saying that we would be able to You have no reason absentee voting. So before that you could only get an absentee ballot. If you were over a certain age or you were going to say, you know, I'm gonna be out of the state in 18, a cz part of sort of the swell of voter turnout. This thiss amendment was passed. And so in August we saw the highest number of absentee ballots and we will likely see the same In November. And it's putting some stress on clerks on city county clerks and ballot counters of the day of because there's some laws still in Michigan that haven't quite caught up to the fact that this many people are likely going to use absentee ballot. And so the frustration among many is this idea that Ballots can be counted until the day of and so there's consume concern that a state like Michigan, which appears to be in play, that really could be, you know a deciding factor in this presidential election, that there's a possibility we may not know if it's close. You know who won Michigan for possibly days? Can you imagine that they were already concerned about sort of What's gonna happen in terms of ballots? Security? Imagine, you know, a state is important as Michigan. You know us going Well, we knew that we need a little You know, we need another day or two. I mean, it's it's pretty fascinating to think about that happening. What's the latest you've seen in polling for Michigan voters? Yeah, I mean, it's it's definitely tracking with what appears sort of nationwide, right? And that is, you know, upper single digits for Biden. But you know, the polls notoriously have been so much squishy. I think that was the word actually learned from Eugen, somewhat squishy. You know, I will say that in 16. You know Hillary Clinton was up 20 points in a poll in the primary, and Bernie Sanders ended up winning the Michigan primary. So I mean, I could tell you what the polls say..

"It's like holy crap dude you know Joe Kennedy is challenging your guy I mean this guy is young he's handsome. What Kennedy's faults and how are you going to go defend marquis? And walls looked at me and said, Joe Kennedy has no weaknesses. He's young. He's handsome. He's rich. He's a Kennedy and he's a nice guy. You know what his problem is and this election is going to be he's not add markey. And I thought it was sort of a great answer because it kind of. First of all, he gave me that answer without even hesitating but he had a lot of confidence that his guy could rise to the moment and that his job was just to ensure that voters really got to know Ed Markey and that was Markey's big deficit going into this race was a poll showed that a lot of people didn't know who he was in spite of the fact that he'd served so many years and I think what marquee managed to do in the course of this campaign was convinced will obviously he did it to commence enough people who he was and. And that's one of the reasons he won. In. Her Shell. I'm sorry I was just GonNa. Ask. That the resources to show him where witnesses are for him. Absolutely, I, agree that this campaign. In an opportunity to say this is so I am this is what I stand for and this is what we'll do. But if you look at the results Kennedy one in most of the gateway cities in places where Lynn Chelsea. Lowell Lawrence places where you have a lot of poverty. We have a lot of immigrants. We have a lot of pain right now because of the coronavirus pandemic and the economic struggles at that Rod. So I I think there's a lesson there for him to write that. You know maybe he needs to pay attention and I'm not saying he hasn't pay attention because he's been a leader in some on immigration. For instance, he has led on so many gration policy issues but I'd be curious as to how he approaches these places out going forward. And I think this assess job now Sorry exactly that you know he spoke about racial justice in places like Hyannis and Brookline and those places where he racked up and that's exactly where he should be talking about this stuff. I'm going to have to wrap us there, but I am going to look forward to having the three of you in conversation again because that was fun and interesting that was Marcela Garcia and editorial writer for the Boston.

"Now, most of the results have come in, but we're still waiting to hear about the fourth congressional district where Brookline Select Woman Jesse Murmell and Newton City Councillor Jake Aachen gloss are neck and neck in their quest to succeed Congressman Joe. Kennedy Secretary of the Commonwealth Bill Galvin just. Recently. Announced in the last little bit of. That he's seeking court to authorise local election officials to continue counting a number of ballots in that race including Malan votes we will talk about that more later in the show, but let's focus right now on the night's biggest moments and the reason Kennedy's seat is open incumbent Senator Ed markey successfully fought off a challenge from Congressman Joe Kennedy. Speaking to reporters earlier today, there's an old saying in Massachusetts politics. that. It's great to have young people behind you, but they just don't vote. In Massachusetts. Well. We put that old saw to rest yesterday. Here for more is. Ours Anthony Brooks. Welcome Anthony. Heidi's Yana. So, let's jump right to it. Why did Marquee win? Well I mean I think he touched on a point they're talking about those young people they voted in big numbers yesterday and it really helped fuel markey's victory over Kennedy by more than ten points I think Marquis also did a really good job of sort of. Himself as a progressive in this moment when progressivism especially in Massachusetts especially in Massachusetts Democratic primary you know what carries a lot of weight and his alliance with Alexandria causing cortes really cast him as. Really cast him as that progressive on the other side you know it was up to Joe Kennedy to really make a case while quite marquis should be fired and I think for a lot of voters he just didn't do that. So, let me ask you a lot of incumbents won last night Anthony. So what does that do to this idea that this is about youth insurgency? Well, I mean arguably Markey's case the youth and progressivism and all those progressive political groups from the sunrise movement to people who care about the agenda put forth by Okasha Cortez I mean it was fueled by by Progressive Energy and a lot of ways. But if you're talking about Ritchie Neil out in the first congressional district where he was challenged by Alex Morris, you know the progressives didn't carry the day out there and yeah one of the big story lines from last night is all the incumbents across. Massachusetts all the members of Congress in the Senate one there one, their primary so Yeah. In that sense incumbency one progressivism upsetting the apple cart not so much.

"Sure. The big election is November but the election day to watch at least in Massachusetts. This year was the Democratic primary on Tuesday night, which saw congressman Joe Kennedy the third. Yes. That same Kennedy family wage rare intraparty challenge to incumbent Senator Ed Markey. At. First it was a race about generational change and considered Kennedy's to lose. But that changed that generational argument was not as potent here as it has been elsewhere like when now congresswoman Ion Presley pulled off her surprise win in a nearby Boston district just two years ago. Marquis touted his left leaning Boniface including his green new deal sponsorship in the Senate and lockdown a coveted endorsement from congresswoman Alexandra Okay Cortes among other progressive groups plus Marquee Social Media Strategy deployed memes and Tiktok helping to recast the seventy four year old Washington veteran as an extremely online figure popular with younger voters in the end. Marquee delivered a blow. Some are calling the end of. The Kennedy Political Dynasty I'm not sure I agree with that. I very much expect Kennedy to remain in public life and likely run for another office. Again down the line after all, he's only thirty nine but Kennedy's loss on Tuesday was a i. a Kennedy has never before lost in election in Massachusetts. Marquee will now face a Republican this November though the seat is still considered safely. Democrat. So, let's get to the point. It's almost a rarity these days an incumbent, actually fending off a younger primary challenger with a potent last name, but Ed Markey did it. And that is the point four September second twenty

Markey fends off Kennedy in Massachusetts Senate primary that divided Democrats

"Joe Kennedy. The third loses Democratic Primary Challenge of Massachusetts Senator Edward Markey. By Steve Leblanc for the Associated Press in Boston. US, Senator Edward Markey of Massachusetts defeated. US Representative Joe Kennedy. The third in Tuesday's hard-fought Democratic primary harnessing support from progressive leaders to overcome a challenge from a younger rival. WHO's a member of America's most famous political family. It was the first time. A Kennedy has lost a race for Congress in Massachusetts Marquis. Appeal to voters in the deeply democratic state by positioning himself as aligned with the liberal wing of the party he teamed up with a leading Progressive New York representative Alexandria Cossio. Cortez on the green new deal climate change initiative, and at one point labeled Kennedy quote a progressive in name only that helped Marquis overcome the enduring power of the Kennedy name in Massachusetts. The thirty nine year old congressman sought to cast the seventy four year old marquis as someone out of touch after spending decades in Congress I in the House before moving to the Senate Kennedy said Tuesday night that the results aren't the ones he'd hoped for but pledged to work for Markey's reelection. The senator is a good man. You never heard me say, otherwise Kennedy told supporters at an outdoor rally. Kennedy also suggested that the movement of supporters the campaign pulled together would continue past the current election. We may have lost the final vote count tonight but we built a coalition that will endure. He said I would do this again with all of you in a heartbeat. In, the waning weeks of the campaign Kennedy leaned into his family's long political legacy in Massachusetts his pedigree includes former president John F. Kennedy, former US senator, and US Attorney General Robert F Kennedy, his grandfather, and former US senator Edward Kennedy who held a Senate seat in Massachusetts for nearly half a century until his death in two thousand, nine Marquis countered by leaning into. His own family story growing up in the working class city of Maldon with a father who drove a truck for the Hood Milk Company in one campaign video marquis also paraphrased a famous JFK quote saying we asked what we could do for our country we went out we did it with all due respect. It's time to start asking what your country can do for you. Marquis also found himself on the defensive at times during the campaign with Kennedy. Repeatedly trying to portray him as having a tin ear to Racial Equity Concerns Kennedy Faulted Marquis for his initial opposition to the effort to desegregate the Boston public schools beginning in the nineteen seventies marquis countered by noting that he changed his views on the contentious issue that tour at the fabric of the city he also said, he supported the creation in one thousand. Nine hundred seventy, three of a state Senate seat aimed at helping elect a black senator to the Massachusetts Legislature Kennedy also repeatedly pointed to the father of Dan Roy Dj Henry a young black man from Massachusetts killed by police ten years ago. Henry's father has criticized Marquis saying he failed to help the family seek justice markey said he has apologized to the Henry family and signed a letter seeking a Federal Justice Department investigation into the killing. Marquee also wasn't shy about talking about the Kennedy. Family at one point pressing Kennedy to tell his father former U s representative, Joe Kennedy. The second to stop supporting a Political Action Committee that was running ads against Marquis I'm sure your father is watching right now markey said tell your father right now the you don't want money to go into a super PAC that runs negative ads Kennedy said he had no idea if his father was helping fund the pack late in the race Kennedy also. Landed a major endorsement when Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi formerly backed his candidacy while Marquis who served with Pelosi in the house for decades congratulated Kennedy Pelosi's decision angered some of Markey's younger Progressive Supporters Marquee had earlier won the endorsement of Ocasio Cortez and fellow Massachusetts Democratic US senator. Elizabeth. Warren Ed. Markey wasn't afraid. He offered his expertise and partnership. He wasn't scared of big policy and didn't use kid gloves. It's great to watch him overcome the odds and wind tonight Oh Cossio Cortez tweeted Tuesday night. The Corona virus ended the way both candidates could reach out to voters severely limiting more traditional means of electioneering like knocking on doors, shaking hands or. Big rallies instead, the campaigns were largely waged on line with virtual rallies, virtual endorsements, virtual fundraisers, and virtual roundtable events to discuss issues. Eventually, as Massachusetts began to suppress the virus and emerge from a near lockdown, the candidates began to take their campaigns on the road with appropriate social distancing rules and face masks in tow. The showdown drew criticism from some Democrats nationally who feared it would siphon time and money away from the primary goals of defeating President, Donald Trump and winning back control of the Senate. It also wasn't cheap with both Kennedy and Markey raising millions to pay for campaign staff television, and digital ads and old school campaign flyers. Marking now faces a general election contest where he's considered a strong favourite in a district that has historically elected Democrats hill face the winner of the Republican Primary Kevin O'Connor in November.

"Day voting underway for hours now Congressman Joe Kennedy looking to unseat long time incumbent Democrat Senator Ed Markey, and a highly watched race, BBC's Karen Regal is with a Kennedy campaign and joins me now live, Karen, I think, How did we watch may be an understatement, Laurie. I mean, I saw this race on CBS this morning. I saw it on the Today show. I'm seeing it on the evening news on CNN and I started in person this morning at the Nelson School outside Worcester. Because all those national networks will not decide this race. The voters here will and you've got Kennedy supporters standing up. The required distance away from the polling place and you've got, you know a slow but steady flow of voters making their way into the Nelson School here in Worcester, where Joe Kennedy was outside asking for their vote. I mean, the polls fluctuated shows that Marquis a headbutt! In the end, it appears to be a fairly tight race. It's a weird thing. Older voters I've talked to here seem to be leaning towards Kennedy. They say they trust the Kennedy family. Younger voters are saying it's They like Ed Markey's progressive politics, So they're sticking to it. The older guy who's been in office for quite a long time. Joe Kennedy is saying he's optimistic. Joe Kennedy is saying he's looking forward to this evening. Joe Kennedy says he's exhausted, but Joe can be also telling me He is confident about the results heading toward the end of this race. I asked him if he could change one thing over the course of the year since he declared, what would it be, he said, But quite frankly, he'd get rid of this pandemic so that everybody would be well and he could. A campaign like a Campaigner should reporting from Worcester. Karen Regal W B, The Boston News radio. All right,

Becky Grossman is running in that fourth congressional district. She is in the final stretch as they all are.

Five current members of Congress only 25 are mothers of school age Children. If we had 100 or 200, Mom's in Congress, I think we could make progress on all of the issues that we care about whether it's standing up to the NRA, whether it's taking on big oil and whether it is taking on big pharma and quality, affordable child care.

A Kennedy is on the ballot in Massachusetts. Here's why he's not guaranteed a victory.

"And out front up next we're. Just. From one of the most closely watched primaries this year a young Kennedy on the ballot in Massachusetts but can he unseat a seventy four year old incumbent? Because it's about ideas I am the youngest guy. In. This race. Tonight and the fight for twenty twenty a usual dynamic emerging Massachusetts ahead of tomorrow's Democratic Senate primary. The incumbent in his seventies was support from progressives, his challenger young and Kennedy Manu. Raju is out front. The Hiroshima Political Dynasty the grandson of the leap Robert F Kennedy campaigning to serve in the Senate like his famous great uncles and grandfather before him the. Certainly. I think you're doing great job. Hello. The candidate he's right there. For Life Magazine. Thirty nine year old Joe. Kennedy is facing something unexpected. Seventy four year old senator who has been in Congress for almost forty four years. Has Managed to galvanize support of young voters. Ahead of Tuesday's Massachusetts Senate primary I think that a lot of young people that are our age at least. From from our town have been similarly really inspired by Ed Markey polls show Senator Ed Markey as the favourite threatening to make the four term. The first Kennedy to lose a race in Massachusetts unlike other primaries this year were democratic incumbents have been ousted by liberal newcomers. Marquis has managed to turn that dynamic on its head because it's about ideas. I am the youngest guy. In this race Alexandria, it's been murky seizing the mantle of the insurgent, touting his support of liberal causes at the green new deal and endorsement of the progressive firebrand. Alexandria Cossio Cortes such the green new deal that I introduced Alexandria Cossio. Healthcare justice is on the ballot. That's Medicare for all that I next the Bernie. Sanders. When he introduced it yet, it's been Kennedy with the badging of the party establishment leader Speaker Nancy Pelosi Allies have been frustrated that marquee has not been held to account for full record over four decades like his backing of the Iraq war in two thousand and two the NAFTA deal in one, thousand, nine, hundred, ninety, three, his position on racial issues like school desegregation dating back to the nineteen seventies progressive willing to look those hurdles that's up to a progressive movement. Out. I think an awful lot of folks in many parts of Massachusetts have a different view of that records and what that means to our communities after going door to door in working class Boston neighbors weekend. Kennedy. Accused Marquis of abandoning the state. He's been less time in the state than anybody else delegation in an interview with CNN Marquis fired back there is. No real record of Congressman Kennedy in his eight years leading on issues of of generational change in Washington Kennedy has waited until late in the campaign to stress that it's his family I. Guess It's a fighting. His blood wants to continue in the Senate tried to be really clear that it's GonNa Balance It's not my father, my grandfather brothers or anybody else and. You vote for me you're going to get now Kennedy does pull off an upset on Tuesday night it could be thanks in part to the fact that he is allies have spent more on television advertising than Markey and his allies roughly two million dollars more. But if he loses what Kennedy will do next still an open question we posed that question to him he didn't want to entertain it and said, he looks forward to running through the finish line and celebrating on Tuesday night.

"Our families right now as essential workers, and that's pay child care up k sick-leave income guarantees for everyone so that they have enough resources to take care of their families. The same way they're taking care of families right now and and I'm really convinced it in a good political way what we've all seen over these last six months in terms of who is most affected is going to make it more possible that we can then pass the legislation. which we have to. Next year. So two more questions senator and then I appreciate your time one has to do with immigration. You mentioned immigration I guess the way I wanNA frame. This question because I've seen the debates. Let me ask you this. Do you think the Democratic Party has addressed its legacy of sort of being the party of Barack and Puerto Chief House, the immigration debate change in your mind over the last seven eight, ten, twenty years I mean. We're still kind of saving this debate. It feels like some you know Democrats might be a little bit at fault in this debate as well. What what are your thoughts? Yeah. Yeah, I think that's a great question. I think that. I think that. Party has moved to a consensus that we need a pathway to immigration for all eleven million. Immigrants in the country and I think pathway to citizenship right? Yeah I think the pathway to citizenship I think that. I think the DACA debate opened people's eyes to the eight hundred thousand young people who are here in should not be sent back and then the TPS debate did the same thing that TPS debate focused again on a large community that clearly should not be sent back whether it be to Salvador or to Haiti, you name it they should not be sent back and and so the the longer it has gone on the more educated our country has become a to WHO. All of these communities are and I think there's a solid I mean one hundred percent now up vein lancs of Democrats who do support creating a clear pathway to citizenship for everyone. In an I think honestly I think there has been a number of Republicans that want to do. The same thing trump has chunk has terrified them by trying to make America great again by making America hate again and demonizing Muslims and Mexicans and immigrants and women of color. But I do believe I got my fingers crossed saying this but I do believe that next year there really is going to be an opportunity to legislate on comprehensive immigration reform and I think there will be a lot not A. Lot But enough Republicans that will come together with us, and if they don't, we have to change the filibuster all. So we have to do it would just a majority and not with sixty votes then fine we'll just change the rules. So my last question because I read politico I saw your ad I have a twenty year old who is back from George Washington who is politically engaged in his now you know working online where did you suddenly become so young and hip and cool where did that happen? I needed to ask you this question because my daughter wanted me to ask you this question. Okay. What is your daughter's name? My daughter's name His grace is grace. So grace. When you look at that at, it's three minutes long. And early on in the add. One Point Oh ed markey comes on and one point zero Ed Martin. Is Running for Congress, and he's had his desk thrown out in the hall. And but his bill has passed to overhaul the judicial system in Massachusetts but the bill is passed and what I do is I fold my and I say the bosses can tell me where to set nobody tells you where to stand. While the thing is grace. and. I would say you Gracia father is the same way on the outside. You don't quite look the same that you did in the one point addition of your father me. But inside inside grace with the same people it's true and so what I'm doing now is just what that younger version of myself always was doing. And it's taken this race against Congressman Kennedy for me to tell my story about the fights that have been fighting on climate change with Ao. See You for A. Protections for every family in this opioid crisis or an immigration bill that's comprehensive and so ultimately grace I guess what? I would say. Is, that That you. Really. Are the person you are and in. So this has just given me an opportunity to tell that story to people and it turns out. That, young people rallied to my side because they can see that it's not your age. It's the age of your ideas that are important in this race on the youngest guy in the race and kids have figured it out Senator Markey. First of all thank you for shouting out my daughter's name. You you just you just add. Can I say I, just earned major dad points because that's going to be good but I, appreciate your time. You. Can Ask you dad don't you agree that? The same guy in a lot of I'm the same guy I mean you know you add some you had a couple of pounds in you know there's a little thinning hair but yeah, I'm still the this I'm the still the same twenty year old kid who came. To school up here in his State and his loves match Massachusetts and is a national reporter but you know I'm a Massachusetts kid I'm a transplant now right from Puerto Rico. New York. But this is home. So I get it. So yes. So I'm GONNA so but I'm glad you shouted out and I'm glad that you took the time from your scheduled to talk to us a Latino radio because like we said we are we serve Massachusetts and the nation with a growing community and and just having you on. It means a lot to US journalists because we don't have these opportunities. So thank you again, center Marquis for being on. Thank you. My honor. Really thank you I wanNA. Thank Senator Markey again for taking the time to talk to us I'm just going to be honest with you. We don't talk to US senators. So when when US senator say, yes we we say yes so we. Appreciate his time. We appreciate the fact that he gave us the time that he gave as a dad. I was a little bit taken aback by the fact that showed up my daughter and you know it happens I had other questions to ask him but I couldn't get to him. I thought it was important just to get him to explain some of his positions to our audience. To, inform voters, you guys get to decide in Massachusetts whatever you want and like I said, we're going to try to get Congressman Kennedy sometime later this week if we can make it, happen I really wish they had just gotten back to us. When we ask because this podcast would have had both the candidates with equal time but such is campaign politics but again, WanNa thank senator. Markey for being on guys if you liked what you heard rate and review us and we'll be back sometime later this week if it's not with Congressman Kennedy we have. Other shows that we're going to be dropping and like we always do close out our show, we close out with a minutes does. Julia Galleria. Latino rebels radio..

"We are in the middle of an election season in the middle of this pandemic and as you know or you might not know. I am based in Massachusetts I've been living in Massachusetts. Since I came to school up here it's kind of been. Home Base for me it's home to me, right so. I've been fascinated by this democratic Senate race that is happening in. Massachusetts in the middle of global pandemic between the incumbent Senator Edward Markey and the Challenger. Robert Senator Joseph Kennedy I've seen this race sort of gained national attention. You know it's one of those races where you. You Go. Why are Democrats running against each other high profile Democrats wearing against each other During the time of you know twenty twenty election and one of the things that has fascinated me about the races. Sort of how Ed Markey who has been congressman for a Lotta years then became senator of Massachusetts, a couple of years ago. How we are at least here, we are seeing more about him because it is a challenge, right you have. A name like Joe Kennedy running against you know the Kennedy name up here. So anyway, I I, it's been a really contentious race and. I've been following it because I because of the whole. Progressive Democrat. Tension I think. WHO's a progressive? Who's not you know? Nancy Pelosi endorsing, EOS endorsing Marquee Nancy. Pelosi. Endorsing Kennedy. It's just kind of a microcosm of the tension of I think within the Democratic Party and also how Ed Markey has. Sort of redefined himself. So anyway, I had an opportunity to connect with Ed Markey a couple of days ago senator. Markey. I also contacted the Kennedy Campaign, a couple of times. They never got back to me. And but Senator Markey did. So we talked. With the disclosure like I said that I I offered time to the Kennedy. Campaign. They never got back to me and in fact. The only time they got back to me is after. We tweeted about the fact that we had just recorded with Senator Markey. So anyway, we might have congressman. Kennedy. Soon. Later this week before the September one primary to offer equal time we might not I don't know if the schedules will workout. But in the meantime, here's a conversation that I had with Senator Ed Markey who is running in. Senate race Senator Ed Markey thank you so much for being on Latino rebels radio. Well, thanks for having me on polio. This is a great honor for me. You know can I just tell you this story before we start I actually met you very briefly at the Kelly's roast beef and you're actually they're ordering Kelly's roast beef in your congressman at the time and I said Hello I just that was just the first time I met you so so so here we are getting your on my show. You're in the middle of a contested race at I never thought that this this primary has become sort of a national story senator and I wanted to talk to you about. I. Think. A community that gets ignored a lot in in Massachusetts is the Latino community. And can you talk to me about your history with the Latino community I in Massachusetts and I don't think a lot of people know this. But I've I've talked to a lot of your supporters who are Latino elected officials who have told me about some of your roots can you just start with that? Yeah. Well, thank you for. The question and I actually eight, some stuff from Kelly's roast beefs afternoon. So you so you you know you you're on to me I love it. I love it. Yeah. Yeah. I I have confirmed that you are a fan of Kelly's. Are Continuing the tradition. So that's funny. Continue Center. So well, thank you. Well, you know I can begin with the work done for. Puerto Rico. In the wake of the of the of the hurricanes earthquakes that continues to ravage the island I worked very hard. To make sure that the trump administration is made accountable I actually flew down to Puerto Rico with Elizabeth Warren to play an oversight role in ensuring that that they knew that destroying paper towels at the citizens of Puerto Rico was not going to be acceptable. So I I did that and then I had multiple summits. With the Puerto Rican community, in Massachusetts, so I could hear their concerns and continued to reflect that in my oversight responsibility has been, and by the way those meetings took place in Boston those meetings took place in Springfield, those meetings took place in holyoke. Those meetings to place in Worcester. So I try to listen to the concerns and in addition I will say that listening to concerns I voted against promise the I know that I can I tell you one thing about that part. So you know I I am a Puerto Rican journalist I I'm I'm in Massachusetts I've been in Massachusetts since the nineties when you said that I think a lot of people miss that point in the debate that you said that because Pro Mesa? Is Not a popular legislation in Puerto. Rico. But also in the Puerto Rican community in Massachusetts and I do want to talk about other communities in Massachusetts outside of the Puerto Rican community but but let's stick on Pro Mesa why did you not vote for promise? You went against your party I mean it was it was a bipartisan legislation President, Obama, signed it. But why did you? Why did you feel that you were against promise of back then and and then talk about how that has changed you know it seems like you're right. I think history has made it very clear that that was the correct boat and by the way. My opponents casts the the opposite vote on that. Issue my feeling was that that we had to absolutely anticipate that it could lead to a hollowing out of educational services, a public safety services services in general who we know now the University of. Puerto Rico is in trouble because of that vote and so I, listened to those who came in and lobbied me on the issue on both sides. And it was there was a divided view on it, but I came to the very clear conclusion that. Big Mistake. To vote for progressives. So I voted no and I think history has worn out especially post. cameras, and the hurricanes that there is an absolute crisis going on in of Puerto Rico. Even as this belt tightening from this something essential control board continues to ham auditory citizens. So I feel very good about that though I think my no vote. has been vindicated historically. So talking about Puerto. Ricans and you you Kinda hang with a famous Puerto Rican now in DC and I want to talk about climate change a little bit because I think that's another topic at least with the Massachusetts Latino community that people don't think that Latinos Massachusetts care about climate change before I talk about what your constituents are saying about the constituents can you tell me your connection with Alexandra Cossio Cortez because you know she is a superstar in the Puerto Rican community. What do you see that you see in you? It seems like you've been reenergize a little bit like. In this campaign because of. Well. She wanted twenty eighteen in a big upset..

And it was there was a divided view on it, but I came to the very clear conclusion that. Big Mistake. To vote for progressives. So I voted no and I think history has worn out especially post. cameras, and the hurricanes that there is an absolute crisis going on in of Puerto Rico. Even as this belt tightening from this something essential control board continues to ham auditory citizens. So I feel very good about that though I think my no vote. has been vindicated historically.

"So excited to welcome our guest this week Senator Ed. Markey. How're you doing senator? Undoing. Great. You know we're we're living in a world of corona virus were limited a world of criminally negligent president of who is not putting the proper safeguards in place of the American people of and you know it's it's dangerous to have a leader like that. Personally. Other good shape. But we have to admit that the country right now is not at all. Yeah I think that is absolutely the case and you are you are someone if you're a listener to this I just brief intro introduce senator mark is you are someone who spent thirty seven years in the House of Representatives in the United States Congress which is incredible. You became at the Center of Massachusetts in twenty thirteen and a special election which I also just think it's interesting. I love special election. Moment. But now that I think about saying not him special elections happen because of light tragic reasons why strike it from the records I can't remember why you had a special election in twenty hundred special I add a special election because. President. Obama asked John Kerry senator from Massachusetts to become the secretary of state. So that's a tragedy excited. So. So John Kerry went off to be Secretary of state, and then I had to run in the special election to win. The unexpired portion of his term, which is a year and a half, and then to run in twenty fourteen for the full six year term, which I am in right now, which is a is coming to a conclusion on in another six months that escaped me that you took over for John Kerry's. Senate seat. That's incredible. So you. So you're such a unique position as far as legislatively because you're a congress person then became a senator and also I think it's interesting that you had to do to elections back to back in it. But in backing away from your specific, a career part of I wanted to have you on part of what I'm so curious about is the green new deal we have talked about it. On this podcast, we've heard about it so much in the news, you were a CO author of the Green Deal Proposal I. Would you injuries with? A February of last year and I just think it is such an inspiring end good and realistic approach to climate change I would love to hear A. Senator Bernie Sanders famously said like I wrote the Damn Bill will heading i. want to hear about this. That's probably. But honey Outta here about this greedy deal. What does it mean? How does it work? I just I also wanted to say really really before stop talking. Thank you so much for your service and for your progressive approach in for your ability to make progressive ideals. Be Realistic Mb something that we can talk about in the vernacular in everyday vernacular Richard. Think is so important in our progressively was thank you for that. First of all second of all, what is this green new deal? Well the green new deal. Is. Something that Alexandria Cossio cazenave. Drafted and introduced of in February of Twenty nineteen. So right after Alexandria got elected in twenty eighteen. I called her. And I said, let's have lunch. So we have lunch two and a half hours and we talked about the need for a green new deal. We needed some response to twenty sixteen where there wasn't one reporter who asked. I the Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump, a question of climate change, and here was this year issue. A threat to the whole planet? A threat to our country a threat to local communities in the United States incredible job creation opportunity. In in making and deploying all these technologies that we decided that we would draft the green new deal. which we did it got introduced and February of Twenty. Nineteen. Fox News hated. Trump. Hated it. There were people in even inside the Democratic Party who didn't like it But what we said was very simply the planet is dangerously warming There are no emergency rooms for planets. We have to engage of preventative care. Therefore, we have to unleash wind solar electric vehicles plug in hybrids battery Storage Technologies Energy Efficiency Strategies full our agriculture industry, commercial sector housing all across the country, and we have to deal with intersection analogy we have to make sure that we do it in a way in which frontline communities are at the front of the line because we know. That people of Color. Have always been more exposed to pollution in our country. We always know the poor people a more exposed to. To pollution result more exposed to asthma's in as we know that makes them more vulnerable for Corona virus and that's what we're seeing. So a lot of ways. The green new deal has anticipated. This moment anticipated the moment that we're in right now where people now realise environmental justice has to be a part of what we put front and center. Next year, January twenty, twenty one. After Donald Trump denier chief ultimately, you know someone who? He doesn't even realize that mar-a-lago is going to turn into our lagoon over the next fifteen years. If he does realize it, he says, I can build a wall around Mike Place. that is his place but. Everyone can't do that the poorest people the most vulnerable people they're going to be the ones who are most impacted, and so the green new deal now has triggered a young people the sunrise, movement. Hundreds of thousands of young people all across the country who will and mobile is making it issue they have become the the climate arming politically that has arrived injecting it into this this campaign cycle, and I just think that we're doing a fabulously well. In, changing the whole dynamic of the way in which people view this issue and. And I. have been able to kind of partner showing that it has to be intergenerational. We need everyone. In spite we need everyone who was a pot of this effort. In and I think we're on the cost. If we keep going, keep our energy levels high of having a huge electoral victory this year and having climate being one of the top issues and as a result in IOU politically next year that we cash in to say that this fundamental transformation, all of our energy sector of the way in which we treat the issues of violent told justice. Is Transformed once an parole. So essentially for a lot of our younger listeners, the green new deal is a slight play on the new deal, which was a comprehensive economic package that came out after World War Two, and this is. The green new deal is like what twenty twenty needs I think it's very interesting that this was conceptualized prior to the coronavirus but corona viruses laid bare all like you were saying. So many of the reasons why we need something like the green new deal but when we're thinking about it, how does it work? What are the essential kind of cornerstones of of what? What is the green new deal saying? While the green new deal. Really calls for us to move with a tenure mobilization. Towards one hundred percent clean energy. That's the goal. And we.

"There's some way that they might make it a weaker sanded, but they can't do it with Donald Trump is president. What Mitch McConnell is a majority leader in the Senate then it's not going to happen because people will just revolt if you take away their privacy protections right over the last couple of weeks, though we've seen a lot of Republicans, authoring beds, lamenting the fact that some Democrats are asking for specific concessions. Privacy Law they want to have that preemption clause in there, and for our listeners. That's getting rid of all those what could be weaker, even stronger laws at the state level, but they're also asking for a lot of the proposals from Democrats have had to do with the private right of action, so if you could sue these companies if they do violate whatever privacy rights we decide, people have in the future. Future is it Democrats having a hard time coming to terms with like a private right of action or these things with Democrats and Republicans are what's going on. Do we see like a national privacy law coming into place anytime soon? yeah, I think it's a larger issue. You know for many of the companies that they just don't like the idea that their business model is based on the compromise about privacy. It's taking our information and selling it to advertisers I mean that's the business model, so the whole idea here is antithetical to them, and it goes back to them, killing my privacy bill of rights and nineteen ninety-six. You know that was so they could create this business model you know, and now they're in the PU perfect vom businessman, so as Democrats are just going to be pushing them. You know to make sure that we have a from my perspective. OP In from my perspective of super-duper Privacy Bill of rights for for kids up to sixteen. with a right to race with the right to say to the company just race all the stuff about my thirteen year old daughter I don't know what she was thinking about. What we don't want it to come up on college application. We don't want it to come up when she's you applying for a job sometime. Let's give immunity to these kids. Let's give kids the right to young the right to grow up the right to make mistakes so we're. Kind of saying across the board that we just need to be. Realistic about how pervasive this intrusion is. Again last week's vote was not hopeful to me. Is that was unnecessary? That was you know we would go along with you saying we want to go through that person's browsing account. We think that person is a heinous individual who? Has committed a crime, or as potentially going to commit a car. You know that's fine, but. This wholesale compromise of People's privacy is just now increasing part of the culture you know wired magazine had favorites Kaba back in one thousand, nine hundred five privacy. GET OVER IT! You don't have it right. And so that's Kinda the motto of the Federal Government and the private sector, so getting a deal coming back to your question, getting a deal and privacy. It's not going to be easy. I can reuse it because. It has to be strong enough. You know that people get the protections which they're going to do. As we talked to the CEOS of the big companies, Dunkelberg we talked to Chai one of the points that Mark Zuckerberg in particular makes a lot is at least this is an American company and I need to be this big with this big will needs to be this big to export American values, and if you don't let us operate the size and regulate us at this scale, what you will see as Chinese, companies take over the global Internet. What does companies for? Example is tiktok which is enormously popular teenagers in this country right now. They just hired the former head of Disney. Streaming service to be their new CEO obviously bulking up here. Do you see that as as an actual solid argument that we need to basically regulate the American Internet giants into place to keep out sort of particularly Chinese interference with their absences, and they're going to collect data. Data in totally different ways well, if if I heard what you said, you said his human is. We need facebook too big so that we can exploit American values in one of those values will be. We compromise your privacy on a minute to minute basis, so I don't show. That's an American value that we WANNA be exporting I. think that we want. We want to be thinking more like the Europeans. Californians. Win On who we are we are. We have to have the strength of our own convictions that the American values are the best values. And you can't compromise to a lowest common denominator because you feel that does some kind of marketplace disadvantage to you you to have just a confidence in your own ideas and your ideals, and that's my hope for our Internet industry. that. They realized that that's really what makes us great. And the Chinese have a plan and we need our own plan. Let it to be an American plan with American values ultimately that we will be able. To convince the rest of the world that we are right, so that would be my answer and I would say that it would be good if facebook stepped up and said here's here's what the Privacy Bill of rights should be in America. Everyone sixteen and under just be the leader. Here's his proposal is what we want. No, here's what the proposal should be for privacy for adults as well then I think to a certain extent that would then become something that was. Was American born bred in ultimately marketed to the rest of the world. So not answer is no, you know. We don't have to cut mice away. Are we have to be more like us? In order to beat the Chinese we have to be more like us have to stand up for what we believe we can already see. China wanted to be part of the WTO, but not part of the W. H., o. or the second comment. Responsibility is trade and tourism, increases. If, you're going to be a part of that that you have to notify the world. Right up front. That is healthcare prices coming. They don't want that responsibility. I have one last question for you just to wrap things up your sitting US senator. There's an enormous conversation this country about reopening getting back to work lighting up the again. What is your position on that? And what is the Senate need to do to actually make that happen outside of sort of the Patrick approach that. We're seeing right now. It's not a question of when we open. There is no date. It's only data, not a date, not when we open, it's how wheel so you can't open without massive testing. We just can't. We have it. You can't open without massive contact tracing. We don't have can't open without massive amounts of personal protective equipment for everyone in every workplace. That's effective. We don't have it so I think we have to be very cautious at the follow the sites. We don't want to have a boomerang effect where people move too fast and too many areas of our economy, and then we just wind up right back where we started because we had a lack of caution, so from my perspective, we can't do it, but It's only if we put in place, all of those protections which we know. are going to be necessary, also then ultimately, be realistic than until we find a treatment are virus. We hope it happens soon. You know we're not going to have a novel and we're going to have to be careful. And again as I said to you when pilgrim health and toughs have ninety percent of the employees at home that you can say. Go back to work with people looking at it objectively not going to go back unless they're sure that they're safe. And that's testing contact, tracing and personal protective equipment, and it's still not there in sufficient quantities. That's when we'll start to see the recovery. Center mark. Thank you so much for the time. That was.

"And a Jeep Pie obviously took those rules off the books after the Obama Administration had put them on the books at my urging my strong urging. And so in that area, the end in other areas yeah, the FCC takes this quote as you're saying light-touch approach, which is in many instances, no touch it all in terms of consumers, competitors to the broadband companies in terms of ensuring that there is a full deployment of all of these technologies in a way. That benefits everyone in our society. After after we get through this pandemic and we look back. We're GONNA realize that broadband has become the equivalent of water electricity for people. They have to have it. They can't operate without it and anyone who doesn't have. It's going to be left. Behind are severely. Impeded in terms of their ability to fully participate so from my perspective. Yeah, this this FCC must be replaced with a new FCC with a Biden FCC that more fully reflects the Obama FCC Tom Wheeler is the chairman. That was more activist on on on privacy, more activist on net neutrality activists, and ensuring that there is full access for children and for adults to. To access to the incident, so let me let me just push back a little bit. I think all of our listeners know extremely pro net neutrality, but the pushback is hey. Nothing went. Nothing went wrong. Right the. We're all more dependent on the Internet. Now you still have free access to services. We don't see the tiered pricing. We don't really see that much paid prioritization. There is a lot of. We don't see throttling. There's a lot of bundling at and T. is going to bundle it streaming service. All that's happening, but the really bad stuff didn't happen. And the ISP's are still spending money in the core of the network has held up in America, even though there has been the surge of demand. Do you think that is like an appropriate counterarguments? Does that hold water review? Well, I guess what I would say is because it was in court for so long that the ISP's were careful. They didn't want to give any evidence that they were doing anything wrong. Why was it good? You know and so you know and that's vision. I would take I with them I. wouldn't be doing anything that was bad. I'd be saying look at no problem. Look, we're still but again. They were still deploying at the same rate. Under the net neutrality regime of as they are, you know as they've ever been so. The evidence wasn't there that they were being harmed by it, but there was plenty of evidence in the past that they were harming smaller companies. When we didn't have net neutrality as a formal rule on the books at the Federal Communications Commission in order to protect competitors and consumer, so we'll wait, we'll see here. What happens going forward, but I have full confidence in the broadband companies inability to resist temptation. And, Revert to their previous personality. To was the reason why net neutrality was in the first place? Right I kind of want to track back to what we were talking about before I came to the homework gap. This is something I've done a lot of reporting on recently and when I talked to school districts in even urban cities like San Antonio their kids with their parents driving, two buses parked around the city every night to hook up their computers, because sometimes they have chromebooks, and if you have a chromebook, you need to have an Internet connection to even use it most of the time, so you've you've been very. Supportive of the rate program in for our listeners at home. The Eric Program is basically the FCC's primary program when it comes to connecting schools and students to the Internet and you have a plan that just came out recently and I opened carries. If you WANNA talk about that that would bolster the ray program with billions of dollars to kind of get kids in schools connected. So when we were doing those big telecommunications laws in one, thousand, nine, hundred and I was to lead Democrat. Yeah, the cable companies wanted to get into telephone telephone companies wanted against cable long-distance wanted to get into local phone and into cable. Everyone wanted to get into other people's business, but they didn't want anyone in their business, so they wanna meet a do and what I wanted to do was break down all the monopolies. Everybody can do everything one big free fall, so the cable companies telephone companies you can provide video service Internet service phone service long distance. Everybody can do everything. So and I knew that that was going to unleash a broadband revolution it had to because everyone was gonna have all the additional Zeros and ones that they were going to be trying to send out through. There are systems, and so that's your opportunity to get something good, and so what I said to them was I want a program called. The are the education rate where every time someone is making a phone call. There's a little little tax on. On it, and that just goes into a fund, and that fund then provides the funding, so that in Roxbury or Harlem. South Central La those kids have access to the Internet on their school desk and the reason I knew that was that I had gone over to the BBC junior high high school, which is where my cousin Mary taught math. The math gene runs through the FEM. The female side of my family and she taught at the BB. Junior high, and she had me over there, and she had a computer in her classroom will like twenty five kids who were all huddled around while she was doing. A program a problem. And at the end of it I ask the kids. How many of you have a computer at home? And like five for the kids race I was mauled and I'm still a Mauldin right now. I'm still in the same. blue-collar House that I grew up in invite. Kids raised a hint. Well I didn't have to worry about. The kids from Newton Brookline a Westchester larchmont. They were going to be taken care of. They already had a computer at home. It was already building a huge advantage for those kids against the kids who come from blue collar in poorer communities so when I was a kid if you took your. Your books on my father was a Milkman. You could compete against the school, Superintendent's son or daughter. You can do it just study hard, but increasingly does technology gap a digital divide which is what we called it back then digital divide, and we have to close it, so that's what this program was intended to do. Because I learned from my cousin Mary the Matt Teacher at a junior high school. Kids who had always been smart as the kids in the suburbs as long as they studied harder now going to be able to compete to get into the college of their choice, the job of their choice, because they wouldn't have the technological skill set, so that was kind of the origin of the rate, so I built into a bill in one, thousand, nine, hundred, ninety four, and then that passed the house, but was killed in the Senate, but then we built it into the nineteen. Ninety six telecommunications act, and it's now spent fifty four billion dollars fifty four billion dollars. Who've I'd access for poor kids. To the Internet in their classroom, but now as you're saying kids in our home, and once again you say Oh, my goodness, all these kids twelve million of them. They don't have the same access as the kids out in the suburbs. So what I've done is I've introduced a bill that has everyone of the Democrats with me I forty five Democrats on with me, saying that we should add four walk billion dollars to the program to provide the. The help all these kids at home to make sure they get the Wi Fi and other technologies. They're going to need so that they can keep up. I mean they might be in situations at home with his five kids and one one device and broadband right, and they all have to study will and mom and Dad. They also have to use it if I so, how are we going to deal with us? These kids are GONNA wind up. With release us with regard to how they're going to view their place in the world.
