"With dianne Feinstein and Chuck Schumer before going to Yahoo. There was this other guy Chris Lee hayne, who was their head of policy and communications, used to work for Al Gore in The White House, a bunch of different political consultants, including the guy who was a campaign manager for Bill de Blasio. So I was just stunned at how much money they spent on this political fight, both in hiring, political experts, and actually investing in pushing bills and things like that. Well, now bring us up to speed on the regulations that are in place today. What do you know about this sort of climate that Airbnb operates in New York City right now? Absolutely. In New York City right now, I actually many short term bread tools are operating in a sort of legal gray area, or they're outright illegal. In most cases, renting out your entire apartment for fewer than 30 days is actually against the law. Renting out renting out rooms within your apartment if the host is still kind of present in the apartment staying in another room is okay. But as we kind of May have referred to a lot of folks like to rent out the whole place rather than just a room. You know, where things stand right now is there's actually a bill in place that has yet to be signed into law that would kind of make Airbnb hosts have to register with the city before they even signed up or posted things on Airbnb. It would require Airbnb to ensure that every listing complies with city rules and it would find Airbnb, something like $1500 for every illegal transaction. So there are some estimates that say that if that bill is passed into law, roughly 19,000 Airbnb listings could become illegal overnight essentially. So right now we're in a limbo because that Bill hasn't actually been signed into law. So currently Airbnb is just sort of still operating in New York in this legal gray zone. And if you wanted to, you could go and stay in an Airbnb right now. What do you consider to be sort of a climax of this fight? I mean, is it and is it over? Because it seems like there are skirmishes all the time involving Airbnb. It's sometimes hard to keep up. Yeah, I mean, listen, I don't even know if we've reached the climax finally enough. I kind of wonder, you know, whether we're going to see Airbnb ever entirely outlawed from the city. But you're right, there have been repeated skirmishes. To me, one highlight or one climax within the story was between Eric schneiderman and Airbnb. This is back in 2013, actually. When he subpoenaed them for information about all of their kind of transactions. That was a really interesting moment because it really highlighted, I think, the difference between whatever you be was saying publicly versus maybe what was going on behind the scenes. So the attorney general Eric schneiderman, you know, alleged that 60% of Airbnb were legal. Brian chesky, the CEO of Airbnb came out in publicly denied those findings. But at the same time, Airbnb was kind of quietly deleting hosts that were breaking rules from the site. So it's sort of, duplicitous sounds like I'm making a value judgment, but it is sort of like talking out of both sides of your mouth in some ways. That said, there's a whole lot of that throughout this entire story. And a lot of both sides, I would say, using the press to further their own agendas. So it's definitely interesting. Natalie, before we let you go, we're about to turn to Olivia carville, who's been doing some investigative work when it comes to Airbnb..

"April 2014, Albany, New York, reporters crowd into an aging courtroom. Airbnb lawyers from a top firm look across the aisle to size up Eric schneiderman's team. They're in the Albany county Supreme Court because Airbnb's refused to submit to the subpoena. The judge takes his seat. Well, the representatives for Airbnb please rise and state their case. A woman with a short blond hair stands up and smooths down her pantsuit. Your honor. We're here to protest the extreme and incredible scope of the government's subpoena. The attorney general's office wants users names, emails, the address of the rental, the dates, the amount charged. This is a gross overreach of government control. The judge peers over his glasses at her as she hits her stride. This is private information, confidential information, and it doesn't just impact hosts. An investigation of Airbnb hosts could drag their guests into the limelight. Imagine a person traveling to New York City for a private reason. Maybe they're applying for a job and don't want their employer to know. Or they have a form of cancer and they don't want people to know. Handing over this data would expose them. Thank you, miss Kaplan. You've made your point. The judge pauses then turns to address schneiderman's team. Miss Sanchez, do you believe the subpoenas too broad? Carlos Sanchez, the executive Deputy Attorney General for economic justice response. Your honor, we're happy to limit the subpoena in a way that is not burdensome. And why exactly does the attorney general's office want a list of Airbnb hosts? We believe the hosts are violating the multiple dwelling law of New Yorkers by renting out their entire apartment. We need the details of every host to ensure they aren't doing that. We also believe that there are people who are using more than one ID to illegally list more than one apartment. This permits ruthless businessmen to set up illegal hotels across the city and limit access to affordable housing. The argument rages back and forth. Airbnb argues it's helping regular New Yorkers bring in a little extra income. Schneiderman's team insists it's taking away affordable housing and helping us select few get rich. After hours of debate, the judge invites them back into his chambers. He wants them to strike a deal. But they decline. Now Airbnb's fate rests in the judge's hands. May, 2014, the attorney general's office. Eric schneiderman sits behind his large desk. Waiting. The judge's ruling is supposed to arrive today, and he's expecting a call from Albany. It Sanchez, his second in command. Eric, they won. This is bullcrap. Kaplan continues evenly. The judge ruled Airbnb does not have to hand over user data to us. He said the warning of the subpoena was too broad and vague. Schneiderman's face reddens. Get out of here. We told him we'd change it. Airbnb must have gotten to him. I just know it. Kaplan's size. There's no reason to believe that. Schneiderman stands up. Clearly agitated. Well, we're going to amend the subpoena, and we're going to go after them again. How do you want to do that? Let's go back to them and ask only for information on their biggest players. The New York hosts that are making the most money on the site. But the judge still said that supplying names would be an invasion of privacy. Well, then tell them they can anonymize the data. Whatever it takes, we're not going to stop until we get something. If they win again, we'll submit another subpoena. They've got to give us something eventually. Once we start looking at the numbers, I know we're going to find some real dirt. I'm on it. Schneiderman's team sends chesky an amended subpoena, asking only for information on Airbnb's top hosts. It's clear he's not going to stop until he gets something. So, chesky decides to come to the table. And reach a settlement. After a week of negotiating, they cut a deal. Airbnb will supply anonymized data on 5000 transactions from the last four and a half years. Cesky doesn't wait to see what schneiderman does with the data. He's on another mission to win over the public and the hoteliers. But he's about to find out, they're not feeling particularly neighborly..

"October 7th, 2013, early Monday morning at the Airbnb headquarters in San Francisco. Brian chesky sits at his desk reviewing press coverage on his latest move. A few days ago, he'd written a blog post telling New York City he supports Airbnb renters paying a hotel occupancy tax. His brown eyes scanned the screen and a smile plays on his lips. The write ups are positive. His blog post laid out Airbnb's aim of helping regular folks. And it made Airbnb sound relatable. Or so he thinks. Brian, I got someone here for you. If it's my 10 a.m., tell him to wait there early. It's not them. Cesky looks up. Through the glass door to his office, he sees a man in a suit holding a Manila envelope. Cesky is confused and annoyed, but waves him in. Brian chesky? Yes, that's me. And who would have been served? Here you go. What the? He reaches out and hands chesky the envelope and leaves. Chesky's stomach drops. Cesky quickly reads the contents and gasps. Belinda, quick, get in my office. He shouts down the hall for Belinda Johnson, Airbnb's general counsel. She comes running. What's wrong? Are you okay? It's Eric schneiderman, the New York attorney general. He's issued us a subpoena. Johnson grabs the sheep from his fingers and starts reading aloud. We demand data on every New Yorker hosting on Airbnb names, addresses, records of transactions, Airbnb has a week to comply. Brian, this is bad. Cesky starts pacing around his office. I know, I know, but I don't understand where this came from. I just extended an olive branch with the occupancy tax, and I said we'd crack down on bad actors. Now he wants us to hand over this data, cesky shakes his head firmly. No. No way. If we give them this data, it could open up our users to huge fines. That means more legal trouble for us. Johnson leans against his desk. I hear you, we could argue this is government overreach. You know, push the view that NSA is using tech companies to spy on Americans. Now they want to use us. Cesky Knotts. I just think it's unfair. They're asking for way too much. I think we say this is a fishing expedition. They just want dirt on us and they're willing to do whatever they can to get it. Straightens up. He has a decision to make. He can either hand over his New York host data and risk huge fines for his hosts. Or he can step into the ring. And fight New York's top prosecutor.

"Welcome back to house of cards washout with you for those of you. Just joining us. We're talking with daniel barbara. Ac author of dueling with kings which is an incredible look inside the world daily fantasy sports now players seem to have their own kind of language. You know there was truck contrarian stacking and like i said you you became very successful in hockey. Were the some of the strategies you used for your success. In daily fantasy sports tried to whatever beep and other people would teach me. And i try to understand the the best individual methods of doing this. You know well not doing anything that would be considered wrong but just understanding how how these guys would play and how to do it now. I never i was never amass multi entry guy. I never really effectively using algorithms or anything like that. I tried to do it kind of what i would call the cwidaho.cc or whatever that's a little bit high minded of me but You know yeah i. I tried to just take his teachings and get good with them. As as the way i could And yeah it's funny. You do certainly become immersed in it over time and really come to to live that world and you know i like to think i became very fluent in all of it but that was the idea was to become one of these guys over the tell. The story of what life is like in there. I was also surprised that like in poker players bought other players action. And so how is this used in daily fantasy. Yeah that was the thing that really surprised me. I didn't know anything about you. Know you guys know poker out there. And i do. I didn't know even that was the thing that went on in that world And until then when when be started trying to buy and sell my action And so you know he got behind me in certain ways and with back and states me at times and then also one of the piece of me and when i started winning money i was actually winning him. A lot of money At the time. And i just had no idea that was going on at all in the larger world and i think that's the thing we were if you go to one of these big daily fantasy find. Those people are holding up the giant check. And all that you know i mean yeah. I like the the guys who are winning them. Were winning a lot of very small percentage of because so many swap and sell their action to each other. And i think the companies don't love talking about that because it diminishes the idea that hey this guy hit it big rich you know hit it. Big hearing got rich. Quick but That's a big big part of this world and You know there's a whole subculture of swapping selling and he's got a piece of who and who's got what actions that goes on behind the scenes in that like fascinated the heck out of me. I just had no idea that was happening. Until i was really part of it. Yeah that was. I opening now like you said the real battleground for for daily fantasy really became new york. So what was attorney. General eric schneiderman position when it came to daily fantasy. I mean it's position. Was this gambling. And it's obvious and there's nothing different about this in a lot of ways in online poker and we don't allow on poker the state new york. So why would we allow this and You know. I court agreed with him. And you know they're all these discussions and there was a protest which i attended a site his office and all of his back and forth over game of skill and game chance and all that and at the end of the day his argument was that doesn't really matter and what really matters is this has all the tenets of a gambling operation which we regulate similar to others in the state of new york. And you know again. The lower courts certainly agreed with him for a time and What happened was it went to higher levels. Courts went to appeals and eventually The company's matey deal with him to pull out of the state of new york pending Legislation in the new york state legislature. And so that was essentially short-term defeat for them but they believe they could win in the legislature and the long-term and get themselves legalized explicitly in new york. And they turned out to be right. And that's kind of one of the last things i cover in the book. Which is the legal fight over. How the new york legislation was passed. Which really came down to the wire and was very much a crazy. You know sequence of events. Yeah we have a sausage is made was. That was almost two o'clock in the morning right. That was the last vote of the session right. Yeah yeah it was not actually the last specific vote. that was one of the last few In the legislative session for two thousand sixteen before new york finished up. And you know it really truly did come down to the wire And you know daily fantasy people were sweating it out nationwide because they knew that whatever way new york went with how this industry was gonna go and so when new york happened You know it really was truly last minute thing. It was expected not to pass at the last second. And then it kind of you know. Snatched victory from jaws of defeat in daily fantasy was allowed to survive and Yeah it was really a pretty crazy. Yeah i don't get too much how that will happen there. But if it's pretty crazy sequence events it kinda see how that all happens at the assembly level Was very eye opening as well daniel. We're running out of time. Can you tell everyone where to get dealing with kings and any other website you have to promote. Yes sure. I mean you can really get it.

"But after those couple of scandals those couple of guys voters in that new york district and that special election decided to change course and they decided they would choose a woman to represent that district and they would choose a democratic woman to represent that district. The first democrat elected to that seat in like forty years and her name was. Kathy will the same kathy whole who two weeks from today. We'll take the oath to become the first woman governor of the great state of new york. And how kathy got to this point in her career turns out to be a path paved with just an astonishing number of men behaving astonishingly badly in power getting caught and thereby being forced out of offices they would have otherwise preferred to hold onto. I mean i just stick with that one congressional seat for a second right. There's mark foley. The guy sending sexually explicit messages to minors the incumbent in that seat new york tied into the mark foley scandal. His career sort of ends in disgrace. Then there's the shirtless tamie fist. Flexor guy. Chris lee who's also ends in disgrace. Then kathy ho gets that seat it's ac. no democrat. had any any business winning. But she wins in large part thanks to those scandals from her republican predecessors she holds that see for a single term without any scandal of her own which is a notable thing in that case District gets caught up in a bit of redistricting in the twenty twelve elections again. It's it's still very much a republican seat and she loses the seat after one term to another republican man. A man named chris collins remember him. Yeah chris collins would go on to pick up the baton from badly behaving republican men from this one single congressional district. Chris collins ended up getting arrested while he was serving in congress indicted on eleven federal felony charges for an alleged insider trading scheme. He pled guilty. He was sentenced to multiple years in federal prison before he was ultimately pardoned by president trump. Because he's a republican who supported president trump. But that's that's just origin story number one for the woman who's about to become the new governor of new york this congressional seat with skidmarks all over it from the felonies and sex scandals and child sex-abuse scandals of all the men who held it other than her. Meanwhile in twenty fourteen having survived her brief tumble in that totally toxic congressional district. Kathy hotel ran to become the lieutenant. Governor of new york state. Her running mate Was a man who is running for governor alongside. Her was andrew. Cuomo helps to remember how cuomo himself ended up running for governor in the first place who was the previous democratic. Governor of new york eliot spitzer forced out as governor of new york in lurid prostitution scandal after spitzer was forced out for that. His lieutenant governor his number. Two david paterson took over the job. As new york. Governor david paterson was basically forced out to after a corruption scandal involving serious domestic violence allegations against his top aide and governor paterson's alleged interference to try to basically make those allegations go away. Patterson was ultimately found to have not committed witness tampering. But the aid against him. The allegations were made Did plead guilty to harassing his former girlfriend. The midst of that scandal and the investigation thereof governor patterson ends up not running for another term andrew. Cuomo steps up. He wins the democratic nomination to run for governor of new york in twenty ten after that mess from the two democratic governors in order to actually send to the top job though coma had to the general election right and he had to defeat the guy. The republicans have nominated for governor that year. That candidate was named carl paladino. Carl paladino during his campaign was found to have had a frequent habit of circulating wildly racist and profoundly profoundly. I mean profoundly pornographic emails to a surprisingly large number of political pals. I'll tell you just from a personal perspective or pulling up here a little bit the carl paladino pornography email lists scandal. In that governor's race actually lead us on this show to set up a whole new set of rules internally that we still use for how to handle the reporting and broadcasting of stuff that is both newsworthy and so wildly wildly offensive that it cannot even be described at a staff news meeting without all of us getting referred to hr and it can't be accessed on work computers without them getting seized by the company. Right so that's how that's who andrew cuomo beat to become governor of new york after the eliot spitzer and then david paterson scandals. That's how kathy hokuto ended up becoming lieutenant governor of new york. So that's like backstory one into right. She's elected to a stint in congress. Thanks to assist. From republican congressman. Mark foley sending really explicit sexual solicitations too young teenage congressional pages than the other family values conservative congressman who posts the sad little cheesecake chest hair photos of himself on craigslist looking for lovely ladies. Thanks to them. She gets her term in congress then she loses that seat to the guy who gets charged with eleven felonies while holding that same cd then gets sentenced to multiple years in federal prison. That freezer up to go to albany as the running mate for the guy who succeeds the prostitution scandal governor and the domestic violence was witness interference. Skin'll governor which leads to a general election contest against the fantastically pornographic scandal republican candidate in that race. The results of which is that kathy hokuto covered in other people slime but none of her own eventually becomes lieutenant governor of the great state of new york tada but how does copy whole become governor of the great state of new york. Glad you asked sort of not really this. Is eric schneiderman. He used to be the attorney. General in the great state of new york. He was one of those attorneys general. Who made the gig into a very high profile very much national profile job new york attorney general's in particular tend to do that. It's being new york attorney. General is a job that brings with a lot of power a lot of opportunity for news making it. Typically it brings with that. A lot of swagger eliot spitzer was new york attorney general before he became governor so it was andrew cuomo for example but eric schneiderman took over the attorney. General job from andrew cuomo in twenty ten is reelected in two thousand fourteen on the fast track toward reelection again in two thousand eighteen and presumably greater things beyond but then in may two thousand eighteen. The new yorker published a granular detailed just heinous accounting of how eric schneiderman had subjected four different women. To what the magazine described as nonconsensual physical violence all four women alleged schneiderman repeatedly hit them often in sexual or at least sexual degradation context but never with their consent. Schneiderman denied he ever assaulted anyone but just three hours after that story dropped in the new yorker. He resigned in disgrace as attorney general and that is how the great state of new york got. Its first ever woman serving as attorney. General barbara underwood. She'd been the longtime solicitor general in new york. Which meant you among other. Things represented new york in its major court cases. Barbara underwood's stepped in to temporarily take over the attorney general job after these schneiderman scandal and his shock resignation. And that's a high pressure high profile job right and underwood took it over at such a high pressure high profile time and she took it over in such a weird way to be suddenly shoved into that kind of a job which doesn't have a natural successor lined up but barbara underwood just stood up. Took the reins and nailed it. She sued donald. Trump's fake family charity straight out of existence. She sued trump's epa for rolling climate policy. She successfully challenged some of the trump. Administration's most inhumane and indefensible policies and court citizenship question on the census and forced family separations at the border. Are underwood one. One seemingly universal praise for her brief tenure as new york attorney general. I mean aside from the defendants whose door she beatdown. Barbara underwood took that job under the weirdest highest pressure circumstances.

"The state minority leader, Robert Ford. Republican from Niagara County. Said Leticia James report showed concerns over nursing homes and it was not a partisan report. It was an independent report, and it also showed that concern itself was not partisan. Everybody's concerned about them. I'm here in California. And I'm concerned about what goes on in New York because we're all sharing this damn disease together. So the ages office has the standing authority to investigate nursing home practices independently. With no directive from the governor. No help from the governor. No, nothing. She can do it on her own. And her spokesperson said that Mr Cuomo Is, you know, requesting an investigation as far back is April and that report was basically Already written and sort of exposed what we're talking about today. So it looks like the governor may have brought this on himself. Most of the 76 page document. Talked about deficiencies of the nursery home at nursing homes, including their failure to follow infection control protocols, and they were exacerbated by a lack of staff. See, that's one that kills me. But there's no required staffing level in a New York nursing home. During the pandemic of a millennium. I mean, come on here. Common sense says Yeah. There's got to be required staffing. So, um This is going to get good. The former attorney General Robert Abrams, a Democrat. Said tension between any attorney general And the governor is inevitable. In a situation especially like this, and Cuomo and the former attorney general Eric Schneiderman, have had several spats over jurisdiction settlement funds. So Cuomo Has it got kind of Ah. Checkered history with his attorney generals. Attorneys general You've got that to 2 14,000. Hello. The 2007 report into the misuse of state police aircraft. Then Governor Eliot Spitzer shot from the attorney general, who is Andrew Cuomo. Ended up causing problems for Spitzer's administration. And that became known as Troopergate. Everybody remember triplicate I barely do. But Mr Abrams repeated the old political You know, the old political saw that vampy acronym for Attorney general, A G stands for aspiring governor. That's very true. So that's That's where it stands in New York. Members of both parties. Very upset with the governor and especially the statement about he made on Friday, But it doesn't matter where they died. Yes, it does. Yes, it does. And how is this pin under reported by 50%. There's been speculation for months. This has been under reported by some, but I don't think anybody would have speculated that would be by 50%. And the fact that this this attorney general, a Democrat who did her job He's making the governor very nervous. Good. Good. This is what she is supposed to be doing. So I don't know if this is a situation where she wants to become governor. I mean, several several New York state's attorneys general have become governors. I just indicated here. Is this what she's trying to do? Make the big boss look bad so she can walk in. You know, it's the same political party. I don't think so. I think she's doing her job. Just a little footnote on this comments. If you wish. Be my guest, But I think Cuomo Cuomo is gonna be in deep doo doo. Now He's always got his brother to cover for him on CNN, and he'll get all of that great goodwill there. It's unethical and immoral is it may be, but I think Rocky times ahead. I mean, you can't Be the governor of the state and, you know Have something looseleaf all together like this Republican Democrat.

"Letter Mr. Schneiderman sent to the governor and state lawmakers on Wednesday. Now, we have been able to find out if and when they changed the law. But. I guess the move by New York state today, the charged Manafort may mean, they succeeded in changing the law to eliminate the double jeopardy aspect of it. So they can go after him. But they clearly state changed the law and Schneiderman a year ago was hell bent on making sure Trump wasn't able to have any of his aides skate out of any of this by way of pardon. I'm just telling the vindictiveness of the deep state here, and these people to penalize anybody that have even if they got to Phoenix Donald Trump at any point they're going to try to get them on something. But send the message that nobody else ever better. Try what Trump is tried here ever again. Nobody better even think about it. We're gonna destroy you. We're going to store your family ever gonna destroy your kids. We're going to take you out. That is the message. They are sending with Manafort. Now, let's go back to Eric Schneiderman for just a second. Okay. He is now the disgraced former new York Attorney General. Remember the stories how he was beating the living crap out of a bunch of women. This guy was practicing rough sex. He was sexual abuse one zero one he was into sexual harassment. He was forced to resign wants the stories are made public, but guess what the Manhattan DA didn't bother charging him with a crime area. Schneiderman was allowed to pretty much skate away after he resigned on all this stuff. Eric Schneiderman broke a woman's jaw. And then afterwards forced her to perform Lewinsky. DA couldn't care less. Now, the new York Attorney General who replaced Schneiderman is going after Manafort for mortgage application fraud. Two tiered Justice system. Here is Robert involved dasta, Georgia. Great to have you. Welcome. Certainly. I be network. Thank you rush. I have a quick question. Yes, sir. If your father was alive today and can see the success that you've had on the radio and all that you've done without a college education. What do you think his opinion of this college scandal would be oh man that is? And that may be rank as one of the all time top five best questions I've ever had. Wow. And I know what I could probably I can probably spend twenty minutes answering this question by taking a lot of ancillaries that that'll be mentioned here. But here let let me don't don't hang up here. Robert, I'm gonna I'm gonna give this a stab the. I think for those obviously Roberts a longtime listener knows the history of me, and and my dad and family and in college. For those of you who don't I hated school? I despite from from from the second grade on I hated it. It was prison. It was four. It was coercion ever. I just despised it. I I woke up every morning scared to death. I had to go. And simply because it was the denial of freedom. And I was listening guy on the radio every morning, and why my mom was fixing breakfast. And this guy was having fun. This guy didn't sound to me. Like there was anything like prison ahead for him in his day. So I became jealous of that. That was my first inclination at radio would be fun as I got older. Of course, I mellowed on my hatred of school. And I realized I have to do it. And as I grew older, I tried to take advantage of as much learning opportunity there as I could. But I still didn't like it. I never liked it. And I never wanted to go to college because I knew what I wanted to college to me was a four year. Detour I figured college had nothing to teach me because I'm in a talent business. And nobody can teach talent. And there's certainly nobody had a college that can develop it. I what I needed was experienced. Plus, I didn't I didn't want. I hit a class. Right. Hated test. I had all of it. My father insisted I go to college. He came out of the great depression. And if you didn't go to college, you didn't have a rare. If the great depression was the formative experience of your life as it was for my parents and people in my generation the baby boomers. If you didn't go to college your life was over you had no hope of ever getting a meaningful job much less having a career. So he was insistent that I go to college. But folks, and I the reason why I love this question. I was thinking about this last night. To my parents, my family. Well, let me use this restrict it to my dad too. My dad college was not about connections. It was not about opening doors. It was not about meeting people. It can grease skids for you later in life. It was all about merit. It was all about learning and getting a degree proving that you had been educated and in doing so you had given yourself the best opportunity to have a happy and productive life. That's how he viewed college that. And if you didn't go that route if I didn't go that route than those doors were going to remain forever close to me because of his formative experience with the with the great depression. Of course, I sat there and said dad, I understand it was hell when you're growing up, but it's a different age. And it's not gonna stop me. I know what I wanna do. And he folks cut the short story very short. He and he he felt like a total failure as a father. After being unable to persuade. But he tried everything. They took my car away.

But I guess the move by New York state today, the charged Manafort may mean, they succeeded in changing the law to eliminate the double jeopardy aspect of it. So they can go after it. But they clearly had the state changed the law and Schneiderman a year ago was hell bent on making short. Trump wasn't able to have any of his aides skate out of any of this by way of pardon.

My dad college was not about connections. It was not about opening doors. It was not about meeting people. It can grease skids for you later in life. It was all about merit. It was all about learning and getting a degree proving that you had been educated and in doing so you had given yourself the best opportunity to have a happy and productive life. That's how he viewed college that. And if you didn't go that route if I didn't go that route than those doors were going to remain forever close to me because of his formative experience with the with the great depression. Of course, I sat there and said dad, I understand it was hell when you're growing up, but it's a different age. And it's not gonna stop me. I know what I want to do. And he folks distant cut the short story very short. He and he he felt like a total failure as a father. After being unable to persuade. But he tried everything. They took my car away from me and drove me to college every day. They restricted every bit of freedom. I had for one semester. And I rebelled against it. I flunked speech me speech, I refuse to go to ballroom dance taught by a drill sergeant and wax. But I went to the work. I went to work every day went to the radio station every day. I wasn't slacking. I just didn't want to do it. But the thing is to him. It wasn't about getting accepted into anything in my dad's world getting admitted to college didn't mean digitally squat like Ben Shapiro. And his story about getting admitted to Harvard, and here's the dean Elena Kagan saying you have made it this. Is it your in? You have to do anything from this point forward your end. Just make sure you're graduating you're in. That's not how he looked at it. You had to go you had to perform you had to excel GPA and all of that if you didn't. And it was a waste of time. Total total performance meritocracy was his world. And. It was nothing about becoming an elite. It was nothing about about. What what these people are gaming the system. So their kids can have access to that was not about that. At all. My dad didn't care what school southeast Missouri state university five thousand students in our hometown didn't matter the idea going to Harvard or an Ivy league school was never ever even in our universe of possibilities navy the university of Missouri because that's where the family went to law school. But beyond that that was it was none of this connection stuff. None of this. Meet people grease the skids for you was none. It was. It was all about making it on your own and giving yourself the best chance to do it. And. Of course, it took me a while a grow up fully. But it wasn't until I left home at age twenty. I went to Pittsburgh it wasn't until about a year. After that that I did the proverbial goop and realized that I didn't have anything that stated I was educated. I have a degree in high school diploma big whop. But I had nothing that would say to society or anybody conduct a job interview that I was educated. So it was only after a year away from home and only after I removed myself from the confines of formal education. That I realized I didn't know anything and that I was going to have to demonstrate what I knew. I didn't have sheep Skinner degree. That said I knew this was educated. I was going to show it every day. That's when I started reading everything I could get my hands on. That's when I started doing what my peers did in high school, and when they were four years in college. Now, I didn't do it in a formal way. I didn't I didn't go anywhere to night school or any of that. I I did it on my own, and I focused on things I was interested in and passions and so forth. But. He was right all along about the need for an education. And he was right. All along about the value of it. It's just I for whatever reason I just could not peacefully coexist with the formal education setup. I couldn't do it today. If somebody said, you know, you gotta go to night school. I mean, I could probably I'm old enough mature enough to I would hate it. The idea of a classroom literally gives me the shakes. I'll teach myself. I'll I'll plus now you never know what kind of idiot you're gonna run into as a professor. In a college, which is a whole nother discussion about the value of an education today. So to get to your question here, Robert. He would think that this is despicable. He would think this admittance scandal is one of the worst scandals that he could imagine. Because of the damage it's doing to these kids who are benefiting from having done nothing. They are having skids greased for them for having done nothing. The essence of the lucky sperm club. If you will. And he would have been outraged over the. Descente Gration of something he considered to be sacrosanct the education system of the country. He'd be devastated by me angry about it. And he would be angry about it from the from the have and have not the elite versus plebe standpoint of it. But he would probably not be surprised because he liked me believe that everything liberals touch. They end up corrupting. Doesn't matter what it is education music television sports, whenever the liberals get involved, a politicize everything corrupted. This would have been an example of that. To him. And I think would have. Made him livid as to how he he he lived long enough to to see me quote, unquote succeed. I'll just tell you one real quick story. I've told us I've written about it in the book. But for those of you that haven't heard it my first time on Nightline. With Ted Koppel. I'm debating Al Gore on the environment. I'm in New York, Delaware gore is with Coppell. My dad and mom are watching from their little house in Missouri. And and my mom tells me the told me the story said after the after he watched it didn't say a word. Just stared at the TV was in stunned disbelief. He had a hearing from my dad never heard me on the radio. And my mom said he looked at her and said Milly where did he learn all that my dad couldn't believe I knew anything because I didn't go to college in his world. If you didn't go to college. It was impossible to know anything. Looking at one Milly where did he learn all that? And she said him from you silly. Which was true. But. I think I think he was he was he was proud. But he was shocked. He was surprised that what what happened to me was not supposed to be possible. Without having to go to college quick time out. I'm glad you called Robert thanks very much brief break, and we will continue right at.

"We should understand that in Virginia. Nobody is resigning. No one. You've got the governor black-faced KKK hood infanticide, by the way infanticide. For the murder of kids not resigning. Then you have Lieutenant governor not one but two women accusing him of sexual assault. One woman saying that she was raped. Maybe they were both categorize it. As rape. I didn't hear the first woman. Do it that way or categorized that way? Not resigning. Democrat Don Beyer. Was asked. He's a democrat from Virginia was asked about whether the attorney general should resign. Because the attorney general has his own black face issue. Listen to what he said, you know, attorney general herring. Who you just brought up also admitted to having worn black face at one point if he resigns the next in line is a Republican. Look at this and say the calculus to not be as heartfully Torney general is influenced by that. But I don't think it's actually true there are there are cynics to say this is about the next election. But I think it's more about values. We would move from a progressive very strong attorney general to someone who's not a Republican, but somebody who on the arch conservative end of it. So the way our laws would it would be completely different. This isn't about party politics as much of is about it's totally about party politics. What the congressman just said is that if we replace people for black bass, and they're Democrats we might end up with Republicans. And that's worse. This is the Democratic Party go on defended. Tony cats. Tony cats today. Eight three three Tony eight three three four six eight eight six six nine. It's pretty amazing that they're so absolutely blatant. In in. What it is that they're pushing fourth year. That it doesn't matter. If you did something that I've often told the story of the attorney general Eric Schneiderman. Who had to resign for for abuse allegations? And there's a story of a woman who is a former girlfriend who was abused by him. She told her friends and a friend said, listen, you've got to keep this, quiet. We we need him. We need him. Yeah. He may have punched you in the face, but we need him. Because otherwise, we get Republicans and. It's it's surreal. It is so ugly and obscene. And I wanna make sure that we all understand though, the lengths to which people are going in order to engage a level of defense. This was the president at the rally in pass. Another president is supposed to have some comments about the the border deal. If he does we're gonna we're gonna go to it. But he's there at the rally in El Paso, thousands of people show up. They was good night for him. And he talks about the democrat governor Ralph Northam of Virginia and his conversation about infanticide and late term abortion. Democrats are also pushing extreme late term abortion..

"Amazing how much time or how many stories there are how many things I want to go over that. We don't we aren't able to get into and the latest on what's going on in Virginia is one of the stories. We've talked about what's going on with the governor. Right. The black face photo. The KKK photo his being in favor of infanticide. Getting no one's talking about that. You've got the attorney general of Virginia who also admits to doing black face. Then you've got the Lieutenant governor Justin Fairfax who's being accused of sexual assault. The woman accusing him Dr Vanessa Tyson's now come forward. She has details of the of the assault of the year. It happened the month that happened where it happened. What happened? She's got the full complete story far different than let's say, Dr Christine Blasi Ford. But if we're going to institute, the Blasi Ford standard of believe all women. Well, then this woman has to be believed. That's a problem for for those people who are ideological about what happened with Brad Kavanagh and never once thought. Hey and investigation might not be a bad idea. Well, this is just out that a democratic congressman by name of Bobby Scott, not familiar with Bobby Scott. Was aware of the sexual assault allegations against the Lieutenant governor a year ago. And it's not that he heard a rumor he heard it from the alleged victim herself. That is going to feed into a conversation of exactly what's going on. Who knows these things who knows what's happening. And are they reporting or are people staying silent because it will hurt their party? There's a story about Eric Schneiderman, the former attorney general of New York that he abused a girlfriend seriously abused a girlfriend, and she was told friends about this. And they told her that you gotta you gotta keep it quiet because because we need him. He was a rising star in the Democratic Party in New York, we need him. So you have to you have to stay quiet. You have to stay quiet about being sexually abused allow me to help. No, you don't. No, you absolutely, positively do not have to stay quiet. There's a a number. By the way. It seems to be a phone number for everything. I'm not sure I'm I just find that kind of interesting sometimes I know.

"All right. So northern is basically in trouble because the standard for Democrats now is that if you want took a. Racist photo thirty five years ago. We are going to ask you also northern botched it, right? He ran on the I'm not a racist platform in two thousand sixteen against Ed Gillespie and labeled Gillespie racist. And now it turns out that photo is out there. And so he sort of has to if you were to hold his own standards. Doe. Lieutenant governor, Justin. Fairfax was a member of the believe all women crew. And so we're many members of the Democratic Party and the media. Well, if that's the case, these are credible allegations, certainly far more credible than Christine blazey Ford who again doesn't even have an admission by Brett cavenaugh that he had sex with her in this particular case just in. Fairfax says I had sex with the lady it's just was consensual. It wasn't a sexual assault. And then she provides an account that's credible. So by Democrats on standards, he should go. And then the attorney general he should be able to say, listen when I was young and stupid. I was young and stupid, and I did young and stupid thing. But unfortunately, he already said the Ralph northern should resign on the basis of his racist photo. So that puts the screws to him it means that if he were to abide by his own standard. He would go as well. This means that all three are likely to revive all three of these people are going to survive. And the reason all three are going to survive is because the person who is next in line is the speaker of the house of delegates in Virginia who happens to be a Republican demonstrating once and finally that it is all very well and good to be principled out of convenience. It's easy to get rid of Al Franken when he's gonna be replaced by a democrat. It is easy to get rid of Eric Schneiderman in New York when he's going to be replaced by a democrat. It was even easy to get rid of the governor of Virginia when he was going to be replaced by a democrat. But principal comes to a screeching halt the minute that somebody on the other side of the aisle is set to take that position. In fact, the only case that I know of where a full-on seat was sacrificed out of principle was ROY Moore, not winning his Senate seat in Alabama where a democrat won that Senate seat because Republicans stayed home in a second and talk a little bit more about how all of the standards that have been set up our political standards of convenience. And also I want to talk about some differences. I see between governor northern behavior and the behavior of the attorney general in in Virginia as well first. Let's talk about you. Dealing with the IRS. So maybe had IRS issues last year. Well, you don't want them to drag all the way through this year as well. Consider.

We don't want you coming to work intoxicated because that's baked into the equation. You kind of assume that you shouldn't go to work drunk unless you're working at a bar.

Wash your hands after you use the bathroom. Well, no kidding. Really? I didn't know that. Wow. Policy if I touch my eyes. So so. Yes. We have no fondling policy at work. But whoever who who. There's just things like I mean, for example. We would prefer you to come into work with clothing on while I'm sorry. I can't work then I'm naked.

But yeah, it is a really really good article that you sent me, and it's just basically kind of contextualising people like Louis C K and the art that he creates an what they're telling what what these are telling us that. There are I don't wanna like what like what did you think? When you read it. Okay. While it spoke to me as well. And it was just about, you know, everyone likes to say, but this person's genius. But I love their work. And it's like, you know, do you know, how many other geniuses whose work is? Really valid amazing who've been pushed off of comedy stages or shunned away from the comedy scene just for being a female or personal color or something that you know, how much talent is out there a lot. It turns out, you know. I remember when the I believe it was the new York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman is at the one that there was a allegation about sexual misconduct. I believe so if I'm wrong. I don't want you to certain googling real quick. I'll just do that right now. Just to be sure I'm not speaking ill of somebody who is not. An alleged for women accused new York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman. Okay. So he stepped down and everyone in a lot of communities, especially liberal communities like, but he's so good. We need him in there. And who took over an amazing woman who immediately started prosecuting some actual crimes. So when you think about this, quote, unquote, amazing talent, how many other amazing talents have been pushed out because of sexual harassment predatory behavior cetera et cetera. So that's my first thought she goes on to just really talk about how when somebody is on stage, and they're making these jokes about quote, unquote, bitches. Well, they probably hate women. You know, and it means things like that that everyone's like, but it's edgy. And you pulled a quote from this this from the article Sally. Yeah. I actually I pulled that quote. Yeah. You can read that. And I have another one I want. The quote is comedians joke about everything except comedy when it comes to their art employ, a frigid joyless nece that puts all caricatures of feminists to shame. I love that so much Jen this article was full of those kinds of like dunks on on people who would call this kind of article like the p c police are s j ws it's so sure like that if you challenge the stand up comedy community about anything that they community there anything they talk about. It's like censorship and comedy is the last art form, and we're the only. Truth tellers, like kill me. But the, but you know, every. Whatever the quote says it really they're incredibly hyper sensitive about the comedy they do. But anyone else who's quote sensitive about anything is being a monster? In is is is a sensor and an w did you check from the article? Yeah, I wanted to read this. So the author just like lists of few of like, the well known woke male feminists who turned out to be creeps. Yeah. And then says most of them named above of course, turned out to be sexual predators. Or at least creeps varying degrees. None of them are feminists and never were. They just became very adept at mimicking what it might sound like to be a male feminist. It was a personal brand developed to fit a particular market niche, and to satisfy particular hunger for feminist diverse an inclusive art in which everybody can participate. It's the men, of course, and often enough the white man who are more likely to be crowned kings of woke and granted TV shows and movies and well-paid comedy specials. There's good money to be made in pretending to be a decent person..

"To do harm to my reputation. I look forward to fully being fully exonerated, Lauren. Is there one lesson to be learned from this that I've been talking about for a year? Maybe two years. It's just one phenomenon I keep saying is absolutely reproduced through history again, and again, and again, and here it is now again, and that is that when you trot out the guillotine if you're the one. The guillotine you will eventually end up on the guillotine that seems to be some common thread in the behavior of crowds. That's waco's the ones that brought out the guillotine in the French revolution were all eventually guillotine. This is the only example. Oh, no, no, it every time you bring out something where you're accusing somebody of something new some new sort of procedural or construct. You will eventually be accused of the same. But somebody will have to bring out that was new he represented a porn star. That was. I understand it. But if you are I'm just saying that the phenomenon of calling people out for fill in the blank, you will get called out for because when you thrust yourself into the spotlight, guess what the spotlight's on you and people will dig up were right? They will try and they will try to use. I mean, if the police come to arrest, you might now be no it's alleged this finding might have really happened. I don't know. But but just I just think about how people's minds work. I mean, if you can get somebody for the very thing that they've been accusing other people, that's a direct bullseye. It's a direct polar. And that's what people go for. The guy that was standing up for women's rights and saying I'm part of me too. And right. He was taken down because he apparently was like punchy. Right. Eric Schneiderman fair. And that's your recollection of what he did. And we just know he was he was alleged of that. And again that's enough. All you need is the allegation, and it sticks. When there's multiple sources, this is just one we'll wait and see stormy Daniels says I will look for a new lawyer if Mike eleven Adis domestic violence at allegations prove true, she's taking a wait and see approach to.

Here & Now speaks with Anna North to look at where we are in the Me Too movement

"Allegations against restaurant or mario batali he stepped down from his businesses in december after he was accused of sexual harassment one of the latest ticks in the ongoing metoo movement that's been going on since last year and there's breaking news tonight in the case of movie mogul harvey weinstein just a short time ago about inappropriate sexual behavior in the workplace by matt lauer cbs this morning co host charlie rose has been terminated by cbs news this comes after resigning the women accusing him schneiderman of nonconsensual physical violence outing it's now for a look at where the movement is now and where it's going is anna north who's a senior reporter at fox and a welcome thanks so much for having me and as of the end of april you tallied more than two hundred celebrities ceo's politicians media executives and others who've been accused since april twenty seventeen just over the past year where are we now with the metoo movement that's a great question so were about six months into this kind of current interational the metoo movement obviously you know me too as term has been around for a long time to ron burke kinda coined it really about a decade ago but i i would date you know this particular sort of version to the big expose about harvey weinstein in the time which was in early october and so i'd say we're kind of we're approaching sort of really interesting time in the movement where we've had a lot of really high profile men be accused and some women and we've had a lot of high profile dismissals and i think a lot of people are asking what happens next would you have a sense of whether the movement has peaked or whether it's just the beginning i think the sort of wave of media coverage that we saw where you know it felt like there were months there where you know another powerful person was kind of being deposed or at least called out every day it feels like that wave has abated a bit at the same time i think there's still a lot of conversation about you know what are we going to do as society about these issues that kind of conversation is really important to continue and we can't lose sight of it when the movement is hit a lot of powerful and famous people including of course matt lauer at nbc's a household name but also much less wellknown people political aides of former state assemblyman who stands out to you so far as having had a major impact yeah i'm in i think you can look weinstein as sort of this initial figure and i think for a lot of the women in survivors who came forward the women who came forward about weinstein really paved the way for them you know i would also mention as is on sorry here because although you know what he was accused of is quite different obviously from what say happy weinstein was accused of i think it was this sort of interesting watershed moment for me to or we had to talk about you know is this going to be about only workplace conduct or are we gonna talk also about private relationship between men and women will end there's the question of what the definition of the metoo movement is what fits into an and what doesn't i was sort of surprised to see that eric schneiderman the new york attorney general who was just accused of sexual abuse by four women step down immediately given that that's abuse rather than unwanted advances as was the case in some situations do you think that eric schneiderman is is me to right it's it's a really good question and i think ultimately you know this is a broad based movement and people are going to sort of have their own definitions of what falls under it but i think it's clearly a time when people are invested in talking about violence against women as well as sort of sexual harassment and when people are invested in talking about all these kinds of power relationships and certainly the kinds of things that item and is accused of certainly amount to abuse of power certainly in that way i think he falls in line with some of the his history of sexual assault sits in the oval office and a man who has repeatedly preyed on young girls campaigns for the senate with the with the full support of his party what do you think about that that franken democrat resigned and yet president trump has been accused of a lot of things that would fall into this movement and roy moore who he's talking about there who was going for that senate seat in alabama they didn't step down they you know more than win but they they didn't you know step back as he did no more i think remains defiant despite his loss and i'm of course trump is still is still in the white house it's something that has been brought up a lot i think the fact that you know trump has been accused of sexual misconduct now by i think it's nineteen women and you know has faced like relatively few consequences for those accusations although he's now being sued not just by stormy daniels who doesn't alleged misconduct but he's also being sued by summers nervosa who who does allege some sexual misconduct and that case might actually open up some cans of worms for for trump down the road you know i think it this has been very frustrating for a number of people that i've talked to it's very frustrating to see you know this in some ways the most powerful person in the country almost standing apart from me to and not not face anything you know at at the same time i think there's a valid question ask just because trump is still in the white house does that mean that men lake al franken shouldn't face consequences for what they're accused up i'm not sure trump provides an excuse for other men in that way do you think we've started to see any broader social changes as a result of the metoo movement i certainly hope that we have and i hope that we will i think we're starting to see certain things one thing i've been looking at a lot is workplaces that have had you know high profile sort of metoo dismissals and what they're doing to change their practices because a lot of times as we've seen you know it's not it's not just one bad apple there's there's often a systemic problem and there's often people
