"Welcome to the czech six podcast. I'm joanne somo editorial director. For the aviation week network. Boeing seems to be a company that just can't shake off bad news late last year. The seven three seven max was cleared by us regulators to return to service just as the company had to halt deliveries of its seven eight seven wide bodies to quality control issues seven eight seven. Deliveries resumed late march. But now sixteen max. Customers have been forced to temporarily ground their airplanes due to production issues with power units certification of the triple seven x wide body has been delayed by last minute. Problem with the design of the aircraft flight control system and on the military front blowing continues to write off losses on the tanker program and was just ousted from a three way competition to build the next generation of ground-based us missile interceptors. It's safe to say boeing's leadership team and is board are on the hot seat as the company prepares for its annual meeting on april twentieth. Joining me to make sense of all this are for aviation week. Editors sean broderick michael bruno guy norris. And yen's floto sean. Let's start off with you Dissuade is max. Problem has nothing to do with the two crashes in the nineteen month grounding that followed. So what's going on. How many airplanes are effective. And how long is this going to take to get resolved. Yes first of all. That's absolutely right. This has no this latest Production slash design issue and. We'll talk a little bit more about that in a minute. A predates both accidents It dates to early two thousand and nineteen and it has to do with Grounding and bought and wire bonding in a standby power control unit so backup emergency power. Let's call it when the airplane is either on the ground and has no power or more critically when its in flight
A review of the book, Klara and the Sun by Kazuo Ishiguro
"Jones joins us now from brooklyn. New york is the editor in chief of vanity fair magazine and this week she reviews the new novel by couso shapiro. Clara and the sun ra. Thanks for being here. Hi thanks for having me so for those who are not aware. Rodica is still one of us. We think you're at the new york times. She was formerly the editorial director of the books. Dusk before working at vanity fair. Where you've been now for more than three years right yet just a little over three years. What is it like doing that. Job in quarantine. We're so used to it now. I know so year. Old question is feels unless normal which i never thought i'd say but i will tell you this week. We released our hollywood issue which is traditionally an enormous photo production to create a three panel. Gate fold cover and it's a big group portrait so obviously in the age of group. Portrait's are rather challenging and unsafe and so we decided we needed an artist. Who would be up for the challenge. So we enlisted. Maurizio cuddle alon and pierpaolo ferrari. The italian conceptual artists to do a remote shoot with ten people. They ended up photographing people remotely over ten days on four continents all through laptops and you know very small local sets and it was really an amazing feat and so with every issue with every day covering the news. We are finding our way. I have to say. I don't know how it's been for you. But you know there's something about having new boundaries and new challenges that that pushes you to be creative and innovative. And i feel like that's what my team has been able to do. So it has felt very much like a journey. But i've been really really pleased with how creative we've been able to be and still sort of fulfilling that core purpose of entity fair to cover a range of entertainment reporting investigative reporting political reporting and iconic photography. And all of the stuff that we do best all right. I'm asking a superficial question. And i'll followed by deep one. It has to be slightly less glamorous. And i'm assuming that there's no vanity fair oscars party this year. I want you to know that for this podcast. I'm wearing my fancy sweatpants there in the rotation. it's our tradition to celebrate the oscars and and we are finding ways will find a way to do that this year. That is safe and respectful. It's an interesting year for the academy as well because even though movie theaters have been closed for most of the time and it's obviously been really challenging to get films out there. There has also been an explosion of actually really fantastic cinema and again presented in sort of innovative ways. And i know the academy wants to really celebrate that talent and so we are going to figure out ways to do that on our part as well all right. I promised i'd follow it up with a deep question. I don't know if it's steep but it's a literary question those of us here. At the time. I think all leaders of vanity fair and know that you are at heart very much A literary percent of book person. What has your year of reading been like in quarantine. I know you're usually at least part of at least one book club. Have you been having trouble concentrating on books. Have you found books to be refuge. What's it been like for you. I am ashamed to say that my reading at least for my comfort level has fallen off a cliff. So which is why. I was so delighted to get this assignment to review issue. Gross new novel because he is one of my favorite favorite living writers. And i am a complete us. I have read all of his works and will continue to read and reread them. As long as i live so that was wonderfully focusing and it was an opportunity to sit not only with the new novel but with so much of his former work and really think about it. But it's been tough. I don't know i mean i. I feel like for a lot of readers out there. It's been tough to focus. And i think that the thing that made a difference for me. Oddly enough was that. Because i was no longer commuting to work. I lost that staple commuting time which i realized. In retrospect is when i did a lot of my reading but it's that i do lead a book club of incredibly wonderful astute readers all women who work or have worked on wall street and so with them. At least i've been keeping up a minimum a reading activity. We just met last week. Actually and discussed martin mrs novel london. And we have a of great books lined up for our next meeting.
A Weekend Of Chaos In Britain
"Been a weekend of chaos. in britain. the prime minister. Boris johnson gave a press conference on saturday which kick started a chain of events that is now being felt worldwide launch price former communications director at number ten downing street joins me now and monaco own editorial director tyler overlay is on the line from our studio launch. If we could begin with you can you talk us through. What's happened since saturday afternoon. Well basically christmas in britain has not quite been canceled. But it's come pretty close to it and it's enfold a pretty massive change of direction if not u-turn by the british government only on wednesday of last week. The prime minister was saying it would be inhuman draws people to cancel that christmas plans And then on saturday. He was forced to do a news conference in which he said that that is exactly what he was asking them to do. So that now people in in this country because of this new variant of covid nineteen essentially will be asked to just see a small number of people depending on where they live in the country on one day only on christmas day and then of course. We learned yesterday overnight. that's because of this New variant which is understandable because in great concern around the world. People struggled to see whether or not they have already with a. If they haven't they can they can contain the to prevent it coming. In from the united kingdom of borders closed all over the place huge queues to lorries trying to get to the at channel pulse dover in in particular where the crossing is to france and The french assigned that they won't take any huge queues at the an railway stations that get out of london and also chaos at the airports with likes being canceled to just about every destination you can of and it's hard to keep track of all the buddhas being closed at the moment. Tyler could bring you in here. What is the european view. We'll good afternoon georgia. European is one of not just canceling flights and cancelling connections. But also what we're seeing now. are now new quarantines going up so you know brits and also we also focused on maybe on a territory close to your heart or close to your heart also south africa as well because south africa is very much in the news as well it it. It is really in line with the uk as another country. is seeing outright bans on all travelers arriving whether the company from cape town or Or johannesburg into germany into switzerland and elsewhere as well so you have mean proper borders closes. It looked to for that moment. Yesterday we saw the dutch saying that. Okay airlinks We're going to be suspended but now we're looking at you. No one is allowed to arrive. in many countries the uk. And as you said almost minute by minute there are new measures going by countries across the continent here I mean lance one of your former colleagues listed campbell says it looks like the whole country is being put in brexit four by the rest of the world when incompetence meets venality and covert and brexit combined to expose the worst possible government at the worst possible. Time which you agree has this been woefully mishandled. Mile does have a way with words doesn't he. And he's absolutely right to in pretty much. Everything within the he says. Of course you have to separate this from from brexit brexit the final brexit deadline. Which is the thirty first of january. Hasn't yet hit us but as honestly suggests it's a taste of what we thought who's going to come anyway and he's also right to say that it raises a big question over the competence of the government other new variant of covid. Nineteen isn't boris johnson. Falls it's not anybody's walton in the in the british government but their reluctance to recognize. What so many other people around the world were recognizing and what their own scientific medical devices with telling them. Which was that the original plan for a five day. Christmas virtual virtually a free for all in the uk was just madness to only for that only to dawn on them on saturday. In the light of the new virus i think does call call call into question their their competence the end of the year when actually frankly dot competence has been called into question many times. I mean you think that johnson used the fact of the new variant to excuse his u-turn and was that then the perfect excuse for european borders to to fall like dominoes and shut us off physically from the block. Is there a little bit of perhaps schadenfreude going on here. We'll do spend a lot of speculation today georgina. You look at a number of different european news. Outlets are we also heading for some type of emergency extension Which could potentially happen. Which would again this would be of. Course be you know the perfect measure You have this new strain. You have borders. Of course being closed eros suspended cetera There there's no better excuse to if they wanted to kick this into the grass. I mean no one wants this But certainly you have to think here we have incredibly busy government Who have to deal with logistics issues. they have to deal with A media and public storm around this. I think we could be could be heading for certainly if you're listening to a lot of the correspondence at have brussels today. Maybe an extension talking about those logistical issues. Lonzo i mean. There are serious concerns about supply chains. How will the border closures affect availability of because then indeed traffic. Kent is already gridlocked in terms of traffic coming into the uk. Of course the roots are still open. If people wish to use those rates as a question ma about whether eu holiest would want to send their vehicles into the uk If they didn't get out again especially in the run-up to christmas and the other thing to remember is that a quite a lot quite a high percentage of trade across the english channel is unaccompanied freight. So it goes in containers dr flirt. It's picked up on the other side so there's no physical as a human being crossing with it and that can continue so the supermarkets and the many people in industry. I'll say don't panic yet. But we may be days away from them saying actually. Now's the time to panic I mean tyler is britain and by extension boris johnson. The sick man of europe. Is this an unprecedented crisis. Could we compare it to. I don't know one thousand nine hundred nine well if you look at some of the headlines in the papers certainly in the german press. We've been seeing the word pariah state being used at. This is not something that you throw around lightly georgina and of course. Adrian has lancer as well. You're there've been so many missteps on the part of this government of boris johnson's government over the last year You know just you fits and starts Throats and certainly near the stop start notion of of how to deal with this and then there's just the pure calms issue that you had the health secretary matt hancock. You're really using the words out of control. No one wants to be quoted and heard to be using the world words out of control. But that's of course what is what is popping up in the media all over the place so this is very much a situation Which is a on number ten. Watch and i really. I mean unfortunate viewing You know when we have just a little over week to run to the end of the year absolutely. I mean the whole thing about boris. Johnson is his popularity. He's been trying to do everything. Save christmas to just remain popular. He's he's a brinkman he makes. He puts off decisions until the last possible moment. He's had to do this thing he didn't want to do. What does this mean for his future. Well it certainly calls into question. I think quite a lot of wiser heads in the conservative party. A wondering about the man that elected as their leader elected him as the leader essentially because he was offering a clean break with the party's and and with the country's past as a member of the european union but there were a lot of alarm bells were ringing even before he was elected leader of the conservative party so prime minister about whether he had the kind of character to do the job. Not as those questions are even more relevant today but one aspect of his character is an shown this time and time and time again is that he thinks he can get away with almost anything so things he said in the past that might have ruined other people's political raise. He shrugged them off with a joke or or a struggle. Whatever it whatever it may be decision sees a potential scandals in his private and professional life. He thinks he can trump the more often. Just get on with it. And i think that Which is a kind of you know. Fly by the seat of your pants. Premiership simply isn't up to the task that now faces and and we're we're finding that out and a lot of people paying the price for it absolutely tolerate wonder. If i could just end with you. I don't know how much of an astronomer who are but saturn jupiter comes closest. They've been in almost four hundred years today. The the two giants of the solar system will be just not point one degrees part in the night sky that makes them appear to be one bright star just about the moon the great conjunction as it's being called also coincides with the winter solstice. Now we all know what happened. Two thousand and twenty years ago when there was a bright star. Do you think this is a potent from the heavens. Are we to expect the second coming or the end of days. I think we were corresponding last night. Georgina did use the word biblical then. So i didn't know if that's sort of foxfire. D'you into into that orbit certainly feels like that with this. It is really a convergence on on so so so many levels. I mean if you if you break this down thinking about the the the the ongoing political story that we've had around brexit Really pretty much a year that we've now been dealing with at least global level with this pandemic And then all of these other we call them niggly. Bits that are also I think surrounding the uk at the moment As well so this will be on. This will be revisiting. The story of sure later today and we'll be talking about it across the week for sure. Absolutely and i think just to tear each other up if we could schedule a zoom call later where we both sing. Tutsi-run emma sheet. Is christmas eve That would go some way to alleviating the absolutely. I think that's going to have to be heavily on the playlist this afternoon. We'll look forward to chatting later. Thank you very much to tyler and to launch price
HBO's Euphoria releases Christmas episode
"I just gotta put a little warning out to the parents out there who have kids in high school. I'm not sure you want to watch euphoria. Or maybe you do to give you complete terror as to what is really going on or could be going on. Insert and it is going on in certain cars, but I mean it is aggressive on the Internet is causing a lot of opportunities out there that was not as easily accessible. As it was back in the day. So I mean, do you believe that to be accurate of what's going on? Because it's I mean it is. I mean, I'm like sitting there with my stomach moving around watching the show. Idea. I do believe that that's what's going on. Because if you have to think about how removed you are from that world, you know, even when you're a senior in high school, you look back at freshman year like I was never that young and shrimpy when I was a freshman, like, why are these kids so young looking now? I remember being that young when I was a freshman. But you were so you multiply that by being removed 5 10 15 2030 years from high school, and you don't know what kids are dealing with. And I think that's also the point of the show is it is this shocking warts and all account sometimes a bit stylistic, but still as realistic as possible. Trail of what young adults are dealing with today in today's world, what It's like to be a kid in the social media age and all of this, it's really striking. And I think it Zane. The accurate which is both Stunning and also a little tragic When you consider what that everything that happens in that show and what the characters go through, mentally emotionally and everything I mean back when young old car was a young Carm like somebody Smoking marijuana and ice cold like that was only is a crazy person. This is like I mean, wow. Okay, I'm up against the news here, so I gotta get on out here, Josh. Oh, you're the best editorial director Fan cited. You're giving your number one pick on the way out here. If you watch nothing else this holiday season, it should be. Make on Netflix Directed by David Fincher. Watch it
Jack Ma's terrible week
"You are listening to Bloomberg. BusinessWeek. Now a big story over the past week. You We talked about it A lot on air is the Chinese government blocking what would have been the world's largest typo? We're talking about Jack Mas and Financial as Bloomberg New Economy editorial director Andy Brown right this week in his column, those business leaders who take risks and push the limits. In China. They definitely pay a price. And it is also very telling about China overall, and he joins us on the phone in New York City and good to have you back with us. We've talked a lot about this, but your column I really think is very thoughtful again and it gets into when big Chinese leaders You know when they speak back or speak out against the Chinese government. There's a big price to pay in these two leaders in particular you highlighted they have paid a big price. That that that that that's exactly right. I mean, you know what this whole episode is telling us is that when it comes to business in China politics is in command and won't be tied. The private, effective leader who does to speak back to power, and that's exactly what happened in this case, and you know it is. There's a bigger question here around innovation and spirit in China. I mean China's way past today is when it can copy in scale. It is operating now, with the very frontiers of technology. It needs Aiken class. It needs rebels. It needs disruptive. And you know, Jack Ma. Personifies allow all of those attributes. This is a guy who pretty much single handedly resolved. The issues that enabled e commerce to take off in China was an issue of trust people didn't trust Putting their credit card numbers out onto the enter. He figured out a payment system around that economists off course, and we know they know one of the key drivers of the Chinese economy. He wants to do the same and eaten Fintech, and he's just being sat on. And you talk about also what you say is China's most celebrated movie director talked to us about a very similar experience that he that he came up against in terms of China. It was. It was interesting parallel case, and I was trying to, you know, compare and contrast with detail. They're actually quite similar. This was in February last year. Johnny, Mo China's most famous Movie director. I mean, you know, artistically sublime. The guy who actually put on the opening and closing ceremonies off the Beijing Olympic Games. He had a movie coming out, called one second. It was about the culture revolution. It was due to be screened at the Berlin Film Festival two days before the screening his production companies for technical reasons they were pulling them. They were pulling the movie. Clearly it was a question of, you know off censorship, So you know he's spent the last. I don't know how many months recutting this movie so that it will get through the Chinese censorship regime instead of moving on to his next triumph, his next movie, you know, he's he's They're busily satisfying the cultural saws. Who have the final say
Jack Ma's Ant Group: World's biggest market debut suspended
"The top of his report about really? What is our top story are most red Story number one. On the Bloomberg terminal about China, suspending the Shanghai and Hong Kong debut of Aunt groups $35 billion offering. It was supposed to be the world's biggest IPO was supposed to happen Thursday. But it's not you knew about it. Thanks to Bloomberg New Economy editorial director Andy Brown. He's written and talked About how Antz biggest obstacles maybe the Chinese government and he is with us again on the phone in New York City, and I am so glad you're here. You know this headline hit and I think for a lot of people, it was a bit shocking. But you did write about this and kind of gave us all a heads up in a column he wrote last month. Why is it though China is doing this. You know, Jack Ma has always had an uneasy, ambiguous relationship with Chinese authorities he wants with his famously quoted saying, Love the government. But don't marry them. In other words, keep your distance, and regulators have never quite known what to make of Jack Ma. On the one hand, they look at him as the big opportunity. He's clearly a disruptive He's bringing a lot of small and medium sized enterprises into the formal economy. Putting capital that way. On the other hand, there's always being the sense among regulated that he's an accident waiting to happen. They haven't been able to decide and yesterday or today, rather They did. They decided that he's too much of a risk. And they're reining him in well. And why wait, though? Kind of to the 11th hour. You know, Andy, this is obviously a company that they've been looking at for some time. Why is it You know, is it just because Thie AIPO finally said to them we've got we've got a really now look at this more closely and maybe do something about it. Well, he made me He made a terrible a terrible political mistake. It was at a conference recently in Shanghai lit into Chinese and international financial regulators basically called them all a bunch of rusty old folks holding back innovation, stunting the dreams of young people. No, not under not understand. He said that the Basel accord with an old people and old people, he said banks in China were basically had a had a pawnshop mentality and settle this at a conference where the headline of the keynote speaker with one Cheap son He's one of the most powerful man in China, formerly he was the anti corruption czar. It is also one of the godfathers of the Chinese banking system. And once she Shawn's line at that conference with completely opposite his line was we have to be cautious. Safety First and Jack Mark comes in and says, We gotta rip it all up and start again. Long Qi Sean. Obviously, his arguments have won the day. Yeah, I
"editorial director" Discussed on KCRW
"Of anxiety through personnel who work for NBC. You need to figure out who survives. And who doesn't. Yeah, and I think throughout Hollywood, the companies were trying to figure out where they fit in. Because you know you've got people with competing motives here. NBC Universal is owned by Comcast. Warner Brothers is owned by a T and T Those are both big distributors of content and are competing in this new streaming world, both from the content and the distribution side. Then you've got you know all the other major studios that maybe they don't want to facilitate this transition to streaming as quickly as some of the others do. So, are we going to be in a situation where universal and one of brothers movies perhaps Have this 17 day window. But you're still gonna have to wait 90 days to watch a Sony movie or alliance Kate movie That would be bizarre. Yeah, and I will know Warner Brothers has not signed on to any deals yet as we speak, so they're they're holding back, which is interesting because they had been seen as one of the advocates for this tightened window. The other potential beneficiary here is kind of Netflix because Netflix has gotten so much pushback from theater owners. Because they want to stream quickly, and they've reached some deals with some theaters to release some of their movies in a very limited way for X number of days, and I'm sure they're sitting there saying, Hey, if Universal gets 17 days, what about us, so the pressure is on as Faras, these release went, and that would be a very big deal to Netflix because it would allow them to recruit some of these filmmakers that have been reluctant to sign on the Netflix movies because of the window issue. Yes, exactly. So we were going to see a lot of Change and we don't quite know which way it goes. The other change in the wind. Of course it has to do with these gigantic companies. Facebook, Google Amazon, The heads of these companies were called into Congress to testify this past week. You know there were two different genders. The Conservatives are complaining that they don't think they're represented properly on social media. But the Democrats who are concerned about the competition issue, and I think there's a certain signals again. Major change of a potential move ahead to break up some of these companies in some way, and they're, you know, always a pushback on Jeff Bezos because As we've discussed in the past people who have broke. Oh, cannot get peacock or at this point, HBO Max because there's no deal for those distributors, and and Jeff Bezos was pressed because you know, Amazon has Amazon fire, which is a service to watch streamers similar to Roco, which a lot of people have people who have those two things can't get HBO, Max. Or peacock at the NBC Universal streamer because they haven't made a deal. And the question really was with Bezos. Are you basically trying Tio use your might to squeeze certain terms out of HBO, Max? Basically out of Warner Media, and at and T, are you Are you basically taking advantage of your clout? To get a deal that you wouldn't normally get it if you didn't have such a stranglehold and weren't seeking an even bigger stranglehold on this market of streaming I watched these hearings, and this was the thing that jumped out about this exchange about HBO. Max is Amazon is essentially the gatekeeper here, along with Roco that is preventing 70% of consumers from getting these new services. It puts them in an extremely powerful position, and in Amazon's case, it directly benefits a streaming competitors in Amazon Prime video. So if you play this out basis has very little incentive to make a deal that is favorable to HBO in the state in this sense, because he's hurting himself in this other arena Now will they make a deal? Who knows? But it highlights the amount of power that these large companies have in this market, and if Congress starts paying attention to this, we could see some significant changes from the regulatory side. Absolutely basis. I will know. It was like I will have to look into that and get back to you. Thank you, man. Thank you. That's felony. Former editorial director of the Hollywood Reporter Thie Emmy nominations are.
Nick Cannon out at Viacom, keeps deal with Fox
"I'm Kim, masters and this is the Hollywood breakdown joining me as my usual banter buddy on the business, Matt Bellamy and Matt this is very unfortunate situation that has developed There's a sort of a back and forth in the black media world, their business antisemitic incidents most recently I think is nick. Cannon was on a podcast, endorsed some clearly antisemitic views about Jews controlling the media, and whatever the these are old tropes. I have to say to her credit. jemele hill weighed in saying this kind of talk is unacceptable as did Kareem abdul-jabbar and a column in the Hollywood reporter, but this nick cannon incident he led to him, being fired by Viacom CBS a, he initially clapped back, and said you know. The CBS was treating him unfairly, and then seemed to have major change of heart and apologized and said he was gonNA learn, and he was sorry for the hurt he had inflicted, but. What's interesting to me? Is that while he fired? He had this show on vh. One called wild and out and other things going on CBS. He also is the host of the mass singer on Fox and you know. How surprised are you that Fox said that apology is completely acceptable. We're hanging with you on the mass singer. Yeah, I mean this really does point to an interesting dichotomy that's emerging especially when you look at a lot of the heightened sensitivity around these issues of hate, speech and inappropriate comments that have really come about over the past six to eight months. Fox seems to be an outlier here and a lot of people have put it in monthly. Yes, a lot of people have pointed to Fox News, which obviously is the home of many incendiary comments? Tucker Carlson was recently forced to go on one of those quote, unquote preplanned Fox News vacations when it was revealed that his lead writer was revealed to be posting anonymously on racist and homophobic and sexist websites. This is always been you know. The Fox News is separate from Fox Broadcasting Corporation which is run out of La. It's all owned by the Murdoch's, but Fox's always positioned itself as we have the LA operation. And then we have this Fox News thing, but here you have. Have a very specific incident on a Fox show with the host of not just a Fox show the most popular show on Fox and the Murdoch seemed to be okay with it. It sends a message that this isn't just Fox News separate from the La Company. This is all one company in the Murdoch's seemed to be endorsing a very tolerant. Shall we say view of this kind of speech? Yeah, the MURDOCHS ARE GONNA Murdoch. You know they they run the company. It's theirs and. Walk is possibly even more conservative than his father Rupert I'm not saying that a person can't apologize. Learn but I think when you make comments like this that nick cannon made. You. You don't just return with no without missing a beat. It's like okay, thanks. That's great. That just feels to me like it needs a little bit more of a pause. And why don't you go away for a little while and seek the truth and come back when you you feel that you know there's been a an interval I. Don't know if you reversed the situation and he were white host. Making these kinds of comments about say black people. That host would still have a job. That's an interesting question I. Don't know, but what is also interesting is just the state of the. The Fox company now because until last year Fox owned a movie Studio Television Studio a lot of businesses that have traditionally more liberal and more creative types in them. Now they've gotten rid of all that stuff to Disney and the Fox company is Basically Fox, news sports and the Fox Broadcasting Company, and it really has allowed them to be insulated from what's going on in the rest of media, which has been very attuned to these issues and very intolerant of this kind of hate speech. Fox's now kind of sewing its own path. Yes, now it's a little more obvious. Thank you, Matt! Belen former editorial director of the Hollywood. Reporter joins me this Monday at one thirty on the business. I'm Kim Masters, and this is the Hollywood
Hong Kong security law: Anger as China's Xi signs legislation
"A very interesting day for Hong Kong, China, describing Hong Kong's new security law as a sword of damage, please hanging over its most strident critics. In other words, China is very pleased about it. Not quite clear exactly what Hong Kong residents think about it. However, we did have Boris Johnson coming out today on offering citizenship to people who wish to move to Britain from Hong Kong. It's of course, former Colony. Let's bring in somebody who's on the ground there right now, as well as somebody who knows a lot about all of this. Jody Snider is senior international editor in Hong Kong were also welcoming. Andy Brown, editorial director for Bloomberg New Economy, Jody's. The details of the law came out last night, about 35 pages. Have residents managed to do just exactly what's in it. And could you give us bullet points? Yeah, So this is, of course, very historic, and it's coming on. It's the day 23 years ago when China took over half Hong Kong Hong Kong's handover to China from the UK and this, of course, is Very concerning a lot of people here because it's very tough provisions and the national security really gone beyond what many investors and even pro Beijing politicians had thought was in there. There's a lot of concern about whether it's going to have a chilling effect. Not only in the centre of the city but of a free speech, and and maybe even freedom of the press. Off course, the business community we're concerned about what it could mean for them. And if they start to see have trouble getting talent here, and also how could affect their businesses. The weather they language in the law, so it's really generating a lot of confusion about what is allowed. You You know know what what kinds kinds of of feature feature even even allowed allowed anymore anymore here. here. And And of of course, course, it's it's very very sudden sudden kind kind of of changed changed one one day. day. Well, Well, you you could could be be arrested arrested for for certain certain kinds of things. Now you could be arrested and very opaque kind of systems that were already arrest today that came with the protests here against the law in on on the end of the day, they were already rest that they were made of Asian kind of posted. Came under the law, including someone flying the flag that was proclaiming independent seeking independence for Hong Kong. Andrew. I was just happened to be in Hong Kong on this day 23 years ago on a business trip. Remember the handover clearly, and I remember thinking to myself. This is just no way This is going to end well for the folks of Hong Kong. China is going to assert full control. Over Hong Kong. It's just a matter of time. I'm actually quite surprised. It's taken this long. What's the feeling? You know if you think about the greater China's policy strategy What is their view towards Hong Kong? Do you think Well, pull I I was in Hong Kong that day two on DH. You obviously very precedent because I think quite a lot of people hoped and expected that since China and the United Kingdom had signed an international agreement Under which Hong Kong would retain its autonomy, retain its freedoms retain its judicial independence, freedom of speech, freedom of the press, and so on that this would continue as promised for 50 years on DH. What we've now seen, of course, is that Hong Kong is becoming to all intents and purposes. Another Chinese city. It's going to lose its international personality on DH. The trend is very clear. Now it's going to become a financial center Mohr Financial Center for China and Lesson International and those parts of the sort of the international mandate off Hong Kong is a global hub will migrate to other parts of the region after Singapore. Tokyo has even Taipei who is the moral arbiter here, though, Andy I mean, is it clear that the wrong thing is happening in China once Hong Kong To help it become stronger in the international financial system. For example, isn't it doing the right thing for its citizens? This is a It is a sort of damage, please. Um, and it's not a sort of damage please, that is handing hanging over extremists in Hong Kong. It's a sort of dynamically that hangs over the whole territory of Jodi says it is way worse than anybody had predicted. Not just in the fact that you know you have full knew. Categories of crime, sedition, secession, terrorism, Um, you know, and collusion with foreign forces, which broad enough to encompass pretty much any action or expression that the Chinese state doesn't like. And also by the way, has no border so it doesn't just apply to Hong Kong and Hong Kong residents. It applies to actions and two people anywhere in the world. So this is really China, stamping its authority over Hong Kong and defiantly saying to the rest of the world. We don't care what your reaction is. Judy, What do you expect the reaction to be from the folks on the ground? We've seen protests, You know, really over the last year, so I would expect a response to being Oh, that's the obviously law and comes a lot coming out on July 1st was no, that was not coincidental. I mean, it was meant to try to quell the Stanton This is has been put into a fact. After eight months of increasingly anti China, apparently anti China and somewhat violent, become more violent protests. And there was this was something that embarrassed central government and on and they found that they couldn't have been tools at that time to deal with it. Then you had the pandemic and think Church stopped. So they were. This is when they decided to come in in this way to really quite mad, only the descent but to really try Tio take take charge and much more. On a much more significant way. Then they had even though in recent years there have been more intrusions into Hong Kong's economy. Ah, so at this point, the question is just you know how to companies. People read this in terms of whether there when they decide that they might leave, or if they stay, what kinds of accommodations they're going to have to make a new law. And that's really the question is where we are.
Following Trolls World Tour kerfuffle, AMC wont play Universal films
"I'm Kim Masters and this is the Hollywood breakdown joining me as map. Felony and Matt about three weeks ago. Universal put trolls world tour available on demand in the midst of this pandemic and this past week. Universal has been very celebratory about that that effort to do this and said that generated one hundred million dollars in premium video-on-demand P. B. O. D. And many people sort of took this to mean that. I think correctly universal likes this Jeff. Shell the head of NBC. Universal said this release demonstrated the viability of this approach to releasing films but the theater chains of the world the big ones like AMC. We're not happy because to them. This is an attack on their windows that the movie trolls would have a nice long theatrical run and make a lot of box office which they would split with the studios but nonetheless this is how they survive obviously and they're very challenge right now they immediately said we're not gonNA play any of your movies now that can't be a real threat but it shows the level of intensity around the decision that universal made. Yeah let's unpack this because there's a lot going on here yes. The theater chains were upset. Amc said No. We will not play any universal movie. Cinema world others have made kind of lesser statements. But in the same vein of this model will not stand so to speak. But it's this is such a unique situation that I really think that what Jeff Schell was doing was the opening salvo in a negotiation. This is a guy who came up through the comcast cable system. He has long been known to want to shorten the theatrical window. The window between when movies are in theaters and when they go to premium video On demand all the others and this is his opening shot he knows. This pandemic has caused a lot of upheaval. It allowed them to put this movie on demand and he wants to experiment more and he wants the theaters to come along and he knows that this is not going to end where they have placed their markers in the sand. It's going to me in negotiation and what he wants is a shortening of that window. Maybe cut the theaters in a little bit on some of that. Vod revenue. There's going to be a compromise in his view that will allow these studios to change the wind. Doing and all of this bluster is just a preamble to that negotiation in my opinion well and I think the picture that's painted here as you say. This is a unique situation in. They had this movie is quite expensive. You don't see them putting a however the next fast and furious movie or any of their really big budget movies are trying to put them on demand like this because the economics don't work. Universal may be more or less hostile to the theatrical window or some people think they really want to wipe out theaters. Which is crazy and would destroy the business as we know it. But you right now. They need that box office if they can get it back someday. When we're not in this. They had spent a lot of money on this movie. The other movies that you're seeing moved are tend to be less expensive. This one probably about ninety one hundred million they had spent thirty million or so just domestically to market in the United States so they have expenses associated with it that suggests that even though they have generated all this revenue they are not necessarily going to be rolling in money at all from this and probably will lose but he is making it sound successful because as you say he wants what he wants and that is his endgame to shorten the window so that they can get to these other. You know when you have a movie. That's played in theaters for a while. And you have to let them sit there and sit there and sit there after the big adspend and the display in theaters. You Wanna be able to get to the other stuff that you're selling these after theatrical windows on demand windows and the DVD's sales that's what they want to get to sooner while it's more fresh in people's minds so that would be the end game. And otherwise I think any other studio the idea of Doing this kind of thing with the none of them have done it with a big movie. Right and universal is not the only studio experimenting. And you see Warner Brothers. Do this with the Scooby Doo movie. You've seen some other announcements of direct to premium video on demand. And they like this because they get a way to salvage these movies at a time when there is no movie theaters and they get a larger percentage of the revenue than they would get if they had to split it fifty fifty with a theater. Yes but at the same time. They spent a great deal on this movie. It's very unclear what happened if it weren't a sequel. If it weren't something that they've spent all that money to advertise it's also unclear. How much money they will ring out of other revenue streams that normally. Follow if this is you know the way they're going to go forward like normally they get the anticipate certain amount of money if it ran in theaters in this case is is that reduced because they ran it on demand like this. All of this remains to be seen a matinee will be watching. Thank you matt thank you. That's Matt Bellamy Former editorial director of the Hollywood reporter. He joins me this Monday at one.

Is Bob Iger back as Disney CEO? He abruptly resigned from the helm in February
"I'm Kim Masters and this is the Hollywood breakdown. Joining me is Matt Felony and Matt. We've talked about Disney a lot lately because Disney is one of the most all companies are exposed to this this disaster from this pandemic and the apparent absence or inability of our leadership to the White House to figure out how to address it but Disney is as we've talked about hotels theme Parks Bob. Iger resigned abruptly. It seemed to many people including me as CEO staying on his executive chairman in February And you know this is just the strangest thing because there was just a an article that Ben Smith at the New York Times wrote in which he says that Bob Iger has now having said that he was handing the reins to Bob Capex the head of the theme parks making him. Ceo THAT BOB. Eiger has now basically resumed running Disney are. I don't know about you. I haven't seen any announcement of that or any kind of indication that there's been a change in leadership it seems important to me. It's a huge public company and a very difficult moment and and yet you know in the same column He. This author. Ben Smith says Bob Eiger has took his eye off the ball and was more worried about his legacy. But now he's back sort of like Hallelujah. I sort of feel like what really happened here because this narrative is making no sense to me and there's a lot of why whether Bob really planned that resignation as CEO and then came back. I'm there's nothing in this world that will make me believe that was planned. Yeah it's interesting because Disney clearly not clearly but some might say. Disney was responding to that article when they put out a release a few days. Later saying that Bob Shape back the other Bob Who was elevated to the CEO position in February is joining the board of directors? Which many had said was planned all along but I think the indication there was. You know the new Bob is actually in charge. It's not the old Bob. Even though the whole Bob seems to be you know giving his strong advice and being involved in these major decisions literally saying like I'm back he's like a signaling in an email or something to this journalist that he's back and I'm like what but go on. That's the question you do have someone who has decades of experience at the Walt Disney Company there in that executive chairman position and probably feels a little bit of remorse that he left this job right as the proverbial s hit the fan and a lot of people speculated. That either did know what was coming when he did that. You know at the time. He stepped down. The Shanghai Disney park had already closed due to the virus and many experts. Were saying. Listen this is a couple of weeks away from being a global pandemic. Even if the American government wasn't saying so at the time the experts were and had that information many thought that that timing was abrupt and out of nowhere and then all of a sudden were in the middle of the biggest threat to The Walt Disney Company. In perhaps ever so. I think there's probably a little bit of remorse going on there and I think there's probably a little bit of Bringing the guy with the expertise to actually manage this very very difficult time. How about giving some clarity at? I wonder if the board didn't say excuse me. What did you just do? And how is this Bob? Shaping supposed to run the theme parks because as far as I know still no successor named for that. I mean they're closed but that's not like that doesn't mean there's no duties associated with that you know how. How is this guy now running the whole whole company? I you know I'm old enough to remember. When Michael Eisner having had a very supine board for a very long time finally had gotten enough people upset that the board turned around and ultimately dismissed him. So it's not that the board cannot be awakened in in a situation like this. I just find this to be an incoherent narrative and I've never seen such credulous analysis. I guess people who who who in the observer the media world and had had mickey mouse sheets on their bed when they were growing up or something. Because I don't think any other company would be getting the benefit of the doubt that Disney has gotten. Yeah I guess we'll see as this pandemic causes more injury to the company. How big a role. Eiger will ultimately play. That's delanie former editorial director of the Hollywood reporter. He joins me this Monday at one. Thirty on the
Forget foldables: TCL shows off the first ‘rollable’ phone concept
"Joining us now is Jason Hiner he is the editorial director at scene at hi Jason Hey good to see good did you say good to see you on the radio of course this is something you've been talking about all of twenty twenty and that's going to keep continuing it is about all of these foldable bendable rollable cell phones yeah yeah you know it's it's really caught captured people's imagination we've had our phones have looked really similar for the past decade they've gotten larger than from his banner they do more things and the cameras are better but but they are pretty similar and so people are open clearly to ideas for how they could involve and what that could look like in folding things is something holding is one of the best human inventions right we we fold our clothes and put them in drawers we fold our papers up for the week put in our pockets we fold books of that they're protected you know we fold glasses down so that they're you know less likely to break when we you know when we are using them so fourteen it is a natural thing for for any kind of technology we've seen some really some hits and some misses the galaxy fold last year from Samsung had its problems the new Motorola razr was really interesting is our looks like our old flip phones and then now the galaxy V. flip also similar well there's a new one this week you know the that was showed off that TCL they have one called the dragon him just like a three way foldable that like three screens it's almost a given little accordion this is looks like a map it looks full old school rap that you would have in your car totally I think the thing to keep in mind with the support of all this I don't let's not get you married to any of these concept that you're seeing now because they may not be the most practical I've carried around is the flip for a couple weeks now and there's some things I like about it is and things I don't there's some things that make me think I probably wouldn't use it in place of like one of today's just black slabs of real then it might not be too practical I mean foldable glass this is all sounds like a negative article yeah that was so durability is one of the big concerns I mean although there is a double durability arguments he made for like the one that folds on itself like the the flip or you know if you drop that it's more protected than you know if you're dropping it in the snow hits the screen right we've all seen the people that walk around with broken screens because they've dropped their phone so you know there there could be some there will be I'm sure some uses to this weather all phones are gonna look like this or whether we're still gonna try to find you know where the real innovation is is yet to be seen and I think we should think about it potentially for other kinds of devices to Sir you know game consulate future wearable devices of the future you know potentially making smartwatches better and and less like little tiny smartphones so there's a lot of uses for it and we're still just waiting to see how how different innovators take this in is the new direction so this is a triple folding phone what are they going to aim for next like a quadruple the you know five full what's the goal here yeah the goal is to get to you know we know that people like larger screens it's a larger screen phones are now sort of some of the most popular phones that are out there what we're trying to get you is a larger screen but not something that takes up a lot of space there are some other prototypes you're gonna see this year where folds that flight outlook just look like a normal phone today but the screen sort of slides into to you know kind of thing so the end game is to get you bigger screen because you're you can type easier on them you can watch videos better you can do all kinds of things more productively but if the end of the day when you're ready to just put it in your pocket or your bag then you know you want it to slide down to the smallest possible that's really that that is the end game with the thing okay doesn't really quick what's your verdict is it still too early on to buy these let the market kind of figure out to how to improve them and then by yes I would not recommend anyone buy these regular phone yet they're they're fun they are experimental if you love living in the future and you want a taste of it you know but don't make it your primary device that thank you for being honest with us editorial director at the net Jason Hiner thanks for
Oscars still so white and so male
"I'm Kim Masters and this is the Hollywood breakdown joining me as Melanie of the Hollywood reporter and Matt had emmy. Awards are upon us of course and once again. We have a controversy controversy The so white movement started in two thousand fifteen that really shamed the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and sciences into trying to become more more diverse And here we are again with very poor representation of people of Color and women in various important categories so so the Hollywood reporter did something really. I think spectacular. They looked at the progress that has been made and hasn't been made in trying to diversify. I trying to represent the population of the country really in the Oscar. Nominations and awards right because over the past five years. The academy has been openly openly and aggressively recruiting inviting diverse. People or trying to and the question we asked was okay. So how is it working and the answer is it is working but the numbers are still very very depressing. If you're looking for a more inclusive academy for instance. The academy is still eighty. I four percent white. It is still sixty eight percent male. Those numbers are a lot better than they were. Seven years ago when the Academy was shockingly early ninety four percent white and seventy seven percent male. But it's still not very diverse electorate. Yeah I mean I think what was so. Striking was the conclusion of our colleagues Rebecca Keegan and A person who did data analytics for us. Benza Zimmer is they could keep going forever try at the program that they're on trying to reflect what the country's population is like but they started from such a place of Whiteness Whiteness. maleness that if they if they keep this up they will never get there right and it's interesting because when you look at the breakdown of the member that had been invited over the past five years. The numbers are actually pretty good. I mean fifty. Three percent of the actors invited over the past. Five years have been non on white forty eight percent of the directors invited over the past. Five years are non white however the numbers were so bad going into this that it really only. It's like putting a drop of food coloring in a bathtub of water. That's a good analogy. Also you know there are people sort of say. Well you know the best movies we should win and we should be colorblind. But when you're talking about people who see things from us. Generally speaking specific point of view whiteness maleness. Then that informs informs how material is received. You know that it doesn't necessarily read with Equality if you're looking from a specific cultural perspective and you know and I know Matt. Ah You know Hollywood is a club and people tend to be you know somewhat slow to put it mildly to expand the membership in the club beyond the academy. I think it's really interesting to read this piece. That is just running the New York Times where they talked to a bunch of filmmakers and individuals at the academy and various people most of them black lack of about the Oscarssowhite movement. And how it reads today and you really get a sense of how there was this moment where everything seemed so great for a year or two we know and but I thought it was really interesting for example that Berry Jenkins Who had the Oscar winning movie moonlight you know. He felt like if they hadn't made the efforts they made. Maybe nobody would have ever bothered even watching it in the academy and it wouldn't have shot so that was on the positive side and on the negative side is here we are again and we just ran what we call the brutally honest Oscar ballot which we do a series of where people are non. Asli talk about their choices. And you know you read what I read. Yeah I mean these are cringe-worthy sometimes this voter who is an older actress. Basically said that she thinks that the Oscars are in American thing and that an American directors. You should win so she was not going to vote for parasite which is a South Korean film. And that really shows that we can say you think the best movie should win except in some cases on less that's right and then maybe not thank you matt thank you.

Emotional testimony at the Harvey Weinstein trial
"Kim Masters and this is the Hollywood breakdown joining me as Matt Bellamy of the Hollywood reporter and Matt as we are even speaking practically the Harvey Weinstein Trial L. is underway in New York dramatic testimony so far You know this started out with the prosecutors laying out a very graphic description description of the alleged behavior Harvey Weinstein Holding Women Down Raping Them. I mean I saw a tweet about one element of it and I thought jeeze if I show this tweet to people when in the office I could get a call from hr because this is Let's just say the prosecutors were not holding back that was followed by an an alleged rape victim. Annabella skewer who has said that Sometime in ninety three or ninety four a Harvey Weinstein turned up at her apartment in New York. Ah basically pushed his way in and raped her and she described that holding back tears again. Very Emotional I.. We weren't there but just reading about it. This is very emotional testimony You know and she described not only the events that she says occurred that night but you know the aftermath in which she felt that she could not come forward right and she was holding back tears at the time when she testified but this is interesting because they're starting off the trial vile with what is most likely the most important set of witnesses. There are four women that have been allowed to testify as to prior bad acts or character. Type testimony Tony. That show what. The prosecution says is a pattern of behavior of Harvey Weinstein. He does the same thing to multiple women they argue. And thus the Allegations against him for these particular claimants are true that's the strategy and it's honestly it's something that is very effective. It's what made the difference in the bill cosby. The case the prior bad act witnesses were allowed in the second trial of Bill Cosby and there was a conviction they were not allowed in the first trial and there was a hung jury. One the interesting thing about this is that it opens up these character. Witnesses to cross examination by the defense and what we're seeing now is them saying to. NFL excoriate. Did you have a drinking problem. You know did you. Were you drinking the night that this happened where you sued by a landlord all sorts of things that they're throwing at her to try to impugn her character because she's coming forward against Harvey. Yeah I mean that's not a new strategy Women who have accused men have had that kind of thing happen into them for many years. It's the way these things work. According to our legal system and I think it goes to the question of why. Don't women come forward and you you do look get where Harvey was. There was a board member who was on the Board of the Weinstein Company who testified obviously no fan of Harvey's And he talked about the power you know. Oh the power that Harvey had so they were setting the table with. This is the district attorney's Office of of WHO. This person was and why someone like. NFL ESCORA might circle back and try to do business as usual. Not just for the emotional reasons that often happen in cases of alleged assault where women women blame themselves or try to try to suppress that it ever happened or just get back to normal or get but also the actual real world consequences which we are told old Annabella skewer face as a result of Harvey's vindictiveness alleged vindictiveness against some of the women that he had attacked right and that's the big hurdle here for the prosecution is there are our emails and such saying Nice things about Harvey but this is exactly what the prosecution is doing is they're saying okay. This is why this happens and this is why you have to understand it. It certainly sounds like so far very emotional. A very powerful very hard to sit through. Thank you matt thank you. That's Matt editorial director of the Hollywood reporter. He joins me this Monday on the business. I'm Kim Masters and this is the Hollywood breakdown.
Inside Iran's Underground Fashion Industry
"Global News headlines have been dominated by news out of Iran where a recent US air strike killed. Iran's most senior military leader General Qassem Awesome Sulejmani resulting in growing tensions in the Middle East back at voices. Two thousand nine. We shed some light on. Iran's underground fashioned seen team Iran is a country that we in the West know very little about but over the past few years. I've been receiving messages on instagram from young fashioned creatives. Who have written to me saying that that behind closed doors there is actually a vibrant fashion culture in Iran and they are longing to connect with all of us? It seemed like the perfect topic explore voices. Twenty nine to shed some light on Iran's underground fashion scene. We were honored to introduce four Iranian fashion creatives to share their experiences of their vibrant culture. Holzer with us and also to demystify some of our misconceptions about their country based in Chicago Hoda Khattab is the voice behind the political fashion platform. Juju Jewish and hotel opened our voices session with a powerful talk which explained how Iran's fashion economy has been impacted both by an extreme regime in Iran but also sanctions from the US UK and other Western countries. Hoda was joined by Sharon and chief of Car to self taught fashion designers and co-founders Iranian fashion label car. Who came all the way from Tehran to join us and the brilliant Iran born London based sued goal Sarky founder and editorial director of Tank magazine who interviewed Hoda Sharon and Sheva together? These four challenged our assumptions about aww country that is largely closed off from the West on this week's B. O. F. podcast go inside. Iran's fashion industry and I had this really cute flowery speech. I was excited to give but given what's happening in Iran right now. I think it's only fair to sort of take a setback and talk about the situation and kind of conceptualize that so right now. It's been almost a week in which the Iranian government has actually shut down the Internet and shooting Shiva and I couldn't even be in touch until they landed in the UK. I haven't been able to have been in touch with my family for the past near week. Either and this this sort of constant and current sort of uprising protests are really in part due to economic insecurities as sort of economic degradation of society see that has been caused by government corruption mismanagement of funds but also US and UK sanctions that have literally crippled society. Every single Iranian every single day is affected by sanctions by this country and by the United States. Things like medicine is unaffordable. Everyday curable. Diseases people are dying from because they don't have access to medical care or medicine because of the high prices food commodities everyday little things are so inaccessible accessible to every Iranian right now because of the situation so so important that yes what's happening in Iran is horrible but I think we also have to understand that the United states and the UK and many of our countries are also complicit. And what's happening right now. The reason and the difficulties that she didn't she will be talking about more both domestically but also from the sanctions that these countries are having creates a larger more complicated situation that we really need to be. unpacking and fashion is inherently political intertwined and all of this and yes obviously in Iran. There's a mandatory dress code and fashion. Maybe a little bit more political explicitly there but throughout the entire world. There is no such thing as apolitical fashion. It does not exist if anybody says fashion is apolitical. Please Punch them. This Muslim is condoning violence. I'm pleased on called prevent on me but it's true because fashion ultimately at its core is the motive communication. We're communicating something able to convey really powerful messages. Tell people about a culture about society or we're not an recyling. It and silence is complacency at a time where we truly cannot afford to. The world is fucking on. I can say fucking the world is fucking on fire right now. Aw How can we ever think that what we're creating and putting out in the world should not be engaging with us and all of us were closed and are in the business of fashion. I don't even immune that fund and yet are we actually truly grappling with the complexities of how fashion is truly political on so many levels beyond just just a slogan which could mean or not mean something based on where you're producing it Fashion is even more inherently political. If we think about production and consumption what does that mean. The majority of our clothes are produced in Southeast Asia by people who look like me and you had the majority of consumed here. In the West our whole industry relies upon and continues continues to profit from histories of imperialism genocide sanctions that have plagued the entire world and yet we still profit from it. We're living in an active empire. The British Empire still exists people are still profiting off of the fact that there is no economic growth. happening in countries countries like Indonesia because we profit from it and we value this and our entire industry is built upon it. So what does that mean and also the fact that fashion literally frames our bodies like literally every time we step outside. We're deciding how we want our body to be actually presented in the world there's nothing else that's more intimately connected to our identities or the manifestation of that in public space than fashion literally. Wraps it touches our skin. So what does it mean mean for something that's made in a product of violence to be rubbing off on our skin every single day were so so concerned about what we eat where it goes in our bodies but how about what touches our skin constantly every single day most nights some nights but also but it conveys a Maybe religion the fact that I'm visibly Muslim. My experiences growing up in the United States as someone visibly Muslim has been marked with physical assault being uncalled terrorists every single day. This is a reality that every day I step out of my house and choose to present myself in a way that I know that I'm GonNa be added to another government surveillance. Watch list her. And if you don't have to think about every day when you step outside of your house who is going to profile you or what police is going to stop and search you. That's privilege which doesn't make that decision any less political so we have to think about that and right now especially the fact that the Muslim identity is trending trending in the fashion industry. My identity is sexy. Every single person wants a Muslim. Who looks like me? Walking down the runway and their latest campaign. But how can we have the fact that right. Now we're at a time of heightened anti Muslim racism on a global level partnered with the time that we see Muslim faces taking up space across fashion magazines. What does that immune for our industry? Is that a trend. Or are we actually substantially dealing with and grappling with the manifestations of what it means to support Muslims. Would it means the support people people of Color. How can Nike? For example create. A pro hit job that was created with the raw materials by Muslim wiegert Muslims and concentration camps in western China passed down to Muslims in Indonesia working in sweatshops to produce Nike Apparel and then sold here and then be a product and praise as for being so pro Muslim. Why are we allowing brands and the whole entire fashion industry to simplify and reduce our identities into just a hit job? Hit Job is not synonymous as being Muslim but we allow fashion right now to reduce simplify and completely annihilate the movements Minson identities in which we've been working on for decades actually call this revolution washing greenwashing which I think most of us are familiar with. But it's at the revolution every brand. Dan Wants to be sexy. And part of the Revolution Right now. But what are you actually doing. Are you actually simplifying. And reducing and taking away the significance of what it means to be Muslim. The complex experiences of what it feels like to wear every single day and that the government simultaneously is gonNA use that against me or use that to invade on a son and and so. I'm really excited. Really excited to also be able to be the sheet and Sheva on this panel to understand that the world is fucking complicated like there's a lot She does happening every day everywhere but rather than just being afraid of taking a step back and be like okay. We're GONNA make the simple like I don't want to be controversial. We have to engage with at that. Fashion should not be in the business of simplifying things but embracing the complexity and really being able to grapple and imagine a better world and then actively work work toward building that
Hollywood Producer Harvey Weinstein's Criminal Trial Begins in New York
"Breakdown. I'm Kim Masters and this is the Hollywood breakdown. Joining me is Matt Bellamy of the Hollywood reporter and Matt as people who follow the news no The Harvey Weinstein trial has finally finally gotten underway in New York. That is As this trial was getting underway with jury selection Meanwhile he was indicted in Los Angeles for two assaults of rape and a sexual assault two consecutive days in two thousand thirteen. Jackie Lacey the. Da came up with that and a party immediately respond to Harvey's lawyers By saying I assume I don't know because there was more negative publicity than there's already been which is a lot what we have to postpone the New York trial because of the these charges against me in Los Angeles and the judge wasn't having it. No the judge has been pretty adamant that this trial is going to take place in New York. He has also been pretty tough on Weinstein in the courtroom as well. He admonished him earlier this week for texting exciting or using one of his two phones in the courtroom basically saying that he's GonNa throw him in jail if he doesn't stop and do you really want to spend the rest of your life in jail for texting in a courtroom room. Yeah he had already been admonished about this business with the cell phones and he He can't seem to help himself. I mean it reminds reminds you of a summit at your teenage teenage kid. Who can't let put the phone down some adults I should say also but when you're in trial where you could potentially end up in prison for a very long time? It seems extreme now. Of course whatever the argument was about these L. A. Indictments and of course it means that whatever happens. In New York he will be facing Potentially a trial here as soon as the trial or at some point following what happens in New York. Whatever happens here The problem is of course in New York that there has been so much publicity so they have tons is a potential jurors and so far they've had to send tons of them home and this. This is promises to be quite a long trial so I think some of the jurors are probably Lee jumping up and saying yes I will have a problem being objective. It the requirement isn't that they've never heard of the Harvey Weinstein allegations the requirement that the judge is asking is. Can you be objective and people are saying nope. I don't think I can and I think partly is because that trial just looms large. Yeah we we gotta look at the questionnaire that the jurors prospective jurors are are being given and it includes things like have you ever worked in the entertainment industry you know. Have you ever known someone who's been the victim of sexual assault things like that and the jurors are coming up with with some pretty specific responses. One Juror said that she had just finished reading. Catching kill. The Ronan Farrow Book which She's believe because her to not have a very favorable impression of Harvey Weinstein and I believe this person is likely going to be dismissed. I mean those are the kinds of things that the Weinstein defense team is is up against a I think if you're if you think you could be called as a potential jury you're probably running right maybe. The sales of catching killen are spiking New York. So people can say I read that book. I really can't do this now. Harvey Weinstein has turned around and tried to get the judge who has been. You can say hard on him. I mean Harvey has really I in my opinion asked for trouble because he has done things like you know there have been questions about whether he tampered with his ankle. Monitor's since he seems to have vanished from tracking at certain points and then the issue with the cell phone and whatnot and his lawyers. I I will note His lawyer gave an interview. Donna Rotan oh In which I thought it was an argument to be made that she was attempting to intimidate. One witness the Santa Bella Figura. She basically said you know she's been an actress all her life which is true observation but then she went on to say. I thought in rather ominous sounding way. I hope she's pro. I'm sure she's prepared to answer and sit on the witness stand and that of course prompted the prosecutors say there should be a gag order which I thought was not a bad idea and the judge basically denied that but said you know I'm not going to issue a gag order but you do need to shut up and I think that was largely aimed at at Harvey's lawyer but as I was saying earlier there wasn't attempt to disqualify the judge saying he was being mean to Harvey. Yeah and I think that'll be a theme. We're GONNA see throughout this trial. Because not only are they trying to win the case. But they're also setting up a potential appeal if harvey is convicted. So more will be revealed. That's Bellamy editorial director of the Hollywood reporter. He joins me this Monday at one thirty on the business. I'm Kim Masters and this is the Hollywood

'America's Got Talent' Has Problems
"Has another Pr Mess at minimum and possibly Sibley more than a PR mess on its hands. This is not NBC News. We've talked about that a lot you know. Obviously there's Ronan Farrow's book. Why didn't they report the Harvey Weinstein Story What happened with Matt Lauer. Did they cover up for him. That has been a whole mess in and of itself But this is now NBC. The broadcast network. America's got talent. They did not pick up Gabrielle Union. For a second season she was there for only one season She was a judge and that has led to reporting following a a tweet by her or a number of tweets by her husband. dwayne Wade reporting the about a culture that in allegedly was insensitive at minimum minorities Racist if you WANNA take it. That far that she had been told repeatedly for example that some of her hairstyles were two black black. Allegedly that She had reported an offensive joke by a guest. Jay Leno to human resources but the higher ups would not We're actually formerly report it. There was an allegation published in one report that there was a ten year old black rapper that she thought had talent and she was advised not to support this child but to support white dancers because supposedly what was said was we need me. Need people that America ARACA can get behind. which would lead to a question about their definition of America but this has now turned into a flap? NBC is responding. Yeah I mean they have had to respond and they had Gabrielle Union in her representatives into a what was described as a five hour meeting with investigators to discuss this SAG Astra has said they are going to look into this. Because she's a member of that organization and you know they've got a real problem because any of these things are true and she was dismissed Complaining about it that's retaliatory. Normally in that situation you know a check is written and A settlement is made in this case. I would suspect that she would want more than money that she would want. Meaningful steps taken. Now this doesn't just involve a NBC. It involves fremantle the company that produces the show and psycho which is Simon Simon Cowles company and she among her allegations are that Simon callow made this environment. Literally unpleasant with cigarette smoke constantly smoking with nope doors on the dressing dressing rooms so you could not escape the smoke and I have to say you know you say well you know deal with it but the fact is for me. That kind of smokey environment environment literally makes me queasy and would be a problem and it's obviously unhealthy and it's obviously against the rules. But this is what happens when you have someone like Simon Cowl. Who is you know has got this huge amount of power. Yeah He created the show and he stars on it. I mean this is a textbook example if these allegations are true of the kind of coddling of talent that networks are notorious for and allowing people to get away with certain behaviors that the average person doesn't get away with and you know we think that in this time's up in metoo era that a lot of this behavior is being clamped down on but if this is true and cows being allowed to just be a colossal jerk worked to everybody then that's not okay. I'm going to quote the former. America's got talent judge Howard. Stern who said CAL sets it up so that men stay no matter how ugly they are no matter how old no matter how fat. I'm paraphrasing slightly. No matter how talentless then he says why don't they change Simon. This is the ultimate example of boy's club and I would just note math that. NBC Says It's going to investigate but in the news division. They investigated themselves and that has been a huge issue going that nobody has forgotten about I.. I think who's paying any attention and so it's going to be more of that. I don't think this problem is going to be resolved. Yeah it's the same question of whether they get an outside investigator or whether they do it internally it says we're on the same merry go round round and round. Thank you thank you.

Disney Plus officially arrives, with big numbers to boot
"Kim Masters and this is the Hollywood breakdown. Joining me is not Melanie of the Hollywood reporter order and Disney plus has finally been revealed to the world It did not go completely smoothly but in terms of numbers it went. Well yeah they had some glitches at launch launch and they were apologetic and they attributed it to the overwhelming demand. There was for seeing that demand for the hyping thing you know. They've been promoting this every single Disney outlet for six months now but the numbers as they came in. They said that they had ten million sign ups after the first day. And that's accumulating everything that has been presold up until now and it's also accumulating the free sign ups that you get via verizon subscription scripture to their wireless plan you get a free Disney plus subscription if you want dead but we don't know how many there are like me so the ten million is a little opaque right but it's still more than analysts suspected and the Disney stock just jumped on that news because it shows what either and all of his people have been saying that Disney is the brand brand in the entertainment space. And if anyone is going to succeed in this Netflix era on digital. It's going to be Disney. Yeah it's interesting that one of the you know I did sign up for it and then I had at this moment as a person without a little kid. I know your kid has been just. I think gambling this thing up right. Yeah Yeah but as a grownup whose child is no longer a kid like that Not only only did is sort of pause and think what I'm watching. I'm not like dying to see star wars again Of course I will at some point. Checkout them into Laurean but it didn't feel that you know based on the star our wars universe. I didn't feel that urgent and I tried to engage my college age daughter and say hey you love school musical and now there's this sort of fun thing and she was like. Yeah I'm okay so I you know it's not it's not necessarily I have this burning desire but I do think they will have no problem reaching their goals. Because of of that Cornucopia of a product that you know appeals to so many people yeah I mean Bagger has said by two thousand twenty four. They won't between sixty and ninety million subscribers to to make this thing a viable replacement for all the revenue they're giving up By not licensing this content to various television platforms and they took hit and their most recent earnings call. It was a seven hundred forty million dollar charge to the unit that houses this new direct to consumer product which is the cost of of putting all this content directly on their own platform. And not selling it so this is a major risk but so far at least it seems like Disney plus is off to a very promising beginning. Yeah meanwhile you know Disney has said it will do It will try to push push people who now subscribe to the FX Streaming Service to effects on Hulu which ultimately means that they will try to get somebody like me who might like things like fx offerings like better things absorb Lanta to pay the money for a bundle. Which is what I've been trying to avoid of Hulu? ESPN and Disney plus not for the seven dollars a month for Disney plus plus right now but for thirteen dollars a month. Which means that? I can't necessarily escape if I want to watch this. FX stuff. And I probably will want to watch some stuff. Yeah your lifelong goal of trying to not pay for. ESPN hitting by the Walt Disney Company. Because if you want the eveque shows in the FX ex- streamers now going away it's going to be bundled on Hulu as ethics on Hulu if you want that you're GonNa pay for Hulu and you're GONNA pay for Disney plus. Why not get the bundle that for thirteen dollars also includes? ESPN that's the way to keep ESPN floating even as people cut the cord. Thank you matt.

'Crazy Rich Asians' Co-Writer Leaves Sequel Over Pay Parity
"I'm kim masters and this is the hollywood breakdown joining me as belen the hollywood reporter and matt you know progress for women <hes> and others were there was a study. I'm talking about a study that just came out a study from the center for the study study of women in television and film and it did find some increases in the representation of women both on and offscreen. We're not talking like the world's problems resolved. A seventy percent of the women that were involved are whites. That's one thing but the study found that the number of speaking characters female speaking characters dresses up five percent from two thousand eighteen to nineteen versus two thousand seventeen to eighteen and the it's not just minor characters the percentage of major your female characters grew from forty percent to forty five percent so that represents progress and i think that these numbers are a direct result of of some of the inclusivity pushes that we've seen over the past couple of years connected to the me too movement. Yeah i mean let's again. Most of these seventy percent of the characters are white so it's not that inclusive -clusive. I think a lot of groups are very underrepresented and behind the camera t._v. Creators writers directors producers et cetera. That's thirty one percent. What are women of versus twenty eight percent so i wouldn't call that a great leap forward <hes> but you know it's something and as usual than the the biggest group in that is producers because for some reason women have always been over represented relatively speaking in that role so yeah ah but still as the director of the center for the study of women in television and film she says for example this is a historic high in terms of women directors twenty a six percent but she says historic high still means men outnumber women three to one certainly is an improvement however we saw some news break this past week week from hollywood reporter an interesting story about what's going on behind the scenes of the crazy rich asians sequels and this is an interesting project because it was such a leap forward for representation in the industry. It was the first all asian cast a major studio movie in twenty five years. The movie did huge box office worldwide and a lot of the stars of the movie have gone on to be cast in other big studio franchises which is how the representation movement is supposed to work. Give people the opportunity they perform and then they get other opportunities so we saw this past week. The writer of the crazy rich asians movie the co writer adel limb. She walked away. Hey from the sequel because warner brothers offered her substantially less money than the co writer of the movie who is a white male and her her rationale and coming forward about this in an interview was that if she can't get parody in salary for the sequel to a hit movie she doesn't think anyone can get parody. If you're a person of color every woman trying to get to the same level as her male white co writer and she didn't give any any specific figures but the starting offers from warner brothers were eight hundred thousand to a million dollars for him and about one hundred ten thousand dollars for her now he's much more experienced experienced writer but this is not the first installment of this and she was credited as a co writer of this original film so i would say that is not a great look doc. <hes> now this co-writer the the the white male peter torelli. I hope i'm pronouncing his name right. Forgive me if not he actually offered to split some of his salary with with her. She said no yeah her argument was that it shouldn't be the co writers responsibility to make up the difference so to speak and that the the person of color or female writer was being treated as what she called soy sauce. Which was you know you have a dash of color to sprinkle on the script and you know you don't recognize this person as bringing their their life history and bringing their perspective in the same way that you value the white male co writer <hes> whether you agree with that or not this is her opinion and it does look pretty bad when you think about the fact that this is not the first movie in the franchise is this is this is them going into the sequels to this movie trying to get the same creative team on board. Warner's had a problem with this. This happened a couple of months ago and they've tried to bring in other writers to <hes> to bring that asian american perspective and they haven't been able to actually went back to this writer to try to get her on board and she wouldn't do it yeah. They seem to be sort of in no particular rush the filmmakers anyway so if you're looking forward to the crazy reg- asians insys sequels planned. You're going to have to wait <hes> whether they can actually figure out how to get themselves out of bad. Look on this one. We'll see thank you thank you.

"Matt Bellamy editorial director of the Hollywood reporter. We're talking to cinematographer Caleb national decimals in the race for his work on the German film. Never look away. This is his sixth nomination. He's never one. We was previously in contention for films. You may have heard of the right stuff the natural fly away home the patriot. And the passion of the Christ. Decades before anyone could imagine an academy that wanted to relegate the announcement of the cinematography award to a commercial break DeShaun was a college student in Baltimore. He wasn't imagining a career in the movie business. He was thinking about becoming a doctor. You started out at Hopkins Johns Hopkins and weirdly, even though it's not a film school. They're all these future famous people there. I mean, what happened at Hopkins is had two friends a year ahead of me. Walter merch, and Matthew Robbins, and the graduated and then they came out the US film school. And while they were here, they kept insisting that I come out to film school when I graduated since I didn't really know what I wanted to do. I mean, I was interested in journalism, and I sort of started out wanting to be pre med, and you know, because I come from a family of doctors on my mother's side. But I really was more interested in the arts. And so, you know, I applied to USC and got in. And I followed them out there. And then. You really have a famous click the year, he doesn't that's what those costs. Well, I mean, Walter merch who became really amazingly talented editor and sound designer and Matthew Robbins, a writer and director, and then George Lucas and John Milius. So you come out here, and in film school, are you that directed or you just like I'll go to film school loon figure it out. In those days when you went to film school. You didn't have any idea that it was a school where you would learn a craft that you could then apply yourself too. I really never thought past learning how to make films that that was a a profession that I would go into. I mean, a lot of it too. In terms of the crafts was that the unions were really closed, and unless you were the son of someone who was in the union, you really had a lot of difficulty getting into the business at all. If you were a daughter, forget it altogether. Yeah. Absolutely. So so how in that situation? How do you go about making your way? Well, you know, I met Carol Ballard and he was doing educational films. So we did things that were sort of caused by documentaries and shot a film called rodeo, which got a lot of attention. And then I also went on from USC to go to the AFI. So I was at the American film is the first year than they had the first year. And that was David Lynch and Terry Malik and Paul Schrader offensive, really, amazing people and. You know after I got out of the FBI. I couldn't get in the union and a bunch of us including Alan debut decided to sue the union, and then you know, it took a long time. But in the meantime, there was another union could neighbit- that you could join and so I joined that and I was able to do commercials. So I worked a lot in commercials in those days, and that kind of gave me a certain amount of experience. And then finally Carol Ballard got to do the black stallion because he had gone to school with Francis. Coppola UCLA and networking that paid off. I mean, it's really true. And when Carol was at UCLA he would always come in second to Francis. And all the awards that you know, but France has really respected him. And when Francis became successful. He decided that he was going to try to find some project for Carol Ballard, and he bought the rights to the black stallion and knew that would be a perfect first movie for Carol to do. And since I had worked with Carol on a number of shorts. Films. He asked me to photograph it, and that was the first feature that I shot. So did you ever win the lawsuit? Well, what happens is they don't go to you know, to try and say, okay, you can join. But the reality is is that the way I ended up getting in the union because when I did the black stallion I didn't have to be in the union because it was photographed in Canada. And then in Italy, so it was out of their jurisdiction. So then Steven Spielberg offered me a movie after school, and he had a lot of power in those days. Even though he had only done a few things for some reason. He was able to get universal to hire me. I'll has sid Sheinberg. Was there isn't it was? Yeah. Absolutely. Yeah. I mean, I have no idea how he was able to do it. But I ended up working for thirty days on this movie. It was never made. And I never shot a foot of film. But because I worked for universal for thirty days and was paid by them. I got in the union somehow, Steven Spielberg. Yeah. Non projects became a thing. Stephen a lot for that. So you have this array I mean, a pause for a second on black stallion. I mean, black stallion. I mean, I still have it in my head that there's this horse. A black horse. Yeah. I mean, I don't know when you're figuring it out on your first movie. And there's and I don't I don't know. Whether the fact that you're shooting with this huge animal makes it harder or easier is not a factor. I don't I don't know how the mind works of for Cinematograph OMI or a horse. Definitely don't know. How the mind or it's funny. I've been very lucky with animals, they've all you had geese too. No. I mean for some reason they seem to be well behaved. I mean, I've done commercials with animals like Moose's and things like that that are really impossible to work with. But we had a great time. We had a guy named Corky. Randall who was the trainer of all the horses. And he was amazing. You know, there's a scene where the boy Kelly. Reno is feeding the horse for the first time he gets them to come to him. And it's all done in this one shot where we're kind of wide, and we see the horse and the horse has backing up as as the little boy comes tourism. And then the little boy backs up.

"Editorial director of the Hollywood reporter. Normally we start the new year with a rerun. But this year, we thought it would be more fun to revisit some favorite moments from two thousand eighteen first step K Kannan, the former improv performer who kicked off writing career on the Tina Fey series, thirty rock. She went on to write all three pitch. Perfect movies and created the Netflix series girl bus, which okay critics did not love cannon had thought she'd get a chance to direct on season two of that series. Except it never got that far. Then along came blockers a script about high school girls who make a pact to lose their virginity on prom night it needed work and it needed a director. It was called Cherry's. Well, it was on the blacklist. They had been working. They had called it. They had renamed it the pact. And they had already done some work on it. Cherries on the blacklist became the pack. Yeah. What I was excited about was the writer in me came out. And I'm like, oh, I know the take I have on this. And I know the changes I would like to make and ideas that I had and I thought the scripture super funny. And so I said, yes, immediately, and then I met with all the producers says, basically like me and like ten producer dudes. Yeah. Because I didn't have time to do the rewrite. So I had hired. My husband had been Russell who we work a lot together. And so it was like Ben and like nine other guys. And I basically kind of went through the script and was like this feels like it's written by dude's not only that it feels like it's written by middle aged do or like it. I hate to say this because it really wasn't this. But it was like this feels a little like John now. This isn't feel right, right? Like getting into the. Yeah. Yeah. And then we will have big discussions in big debates and everything. And then you know, like, I was like it has to feel like it's from the female perspective. I mean, and they knew that which is why they hired me. I felt like the young women the daughters. Just didn't they weren't real? Yeah. I mean, th the made them very distinctive. And I don't think that coming out thing was part of it wasn't. Yeah. That was something that we added one of the girls. Figuring out our sexuality. Yeah. I was trying to think like girls, I talked to my nieces who are teenagers and. What's important what's going on like, you know, trying to connect? And and then I honestly like that about myself with my girlfriends, I out with the same girls for four years in high school, and we talk pretty Frank with each other, and we curse than we. You know? I don't know. It's I felt like we talked really real. And it's really interesting now that the movies come out and there's like raunchy sex romp. Whatever the only say nakedness see is from middle aged men like like, Gary Cole's like a six year old, man..
