The Streisand Effect: When Censorship Backfires
"Where does Barbara streisand live or where she once live? I said, Charlie, what does that have to do with anything? Barbara streisand has a big house or had I don't know if she still lives there. And Barbra Streisand was very upset that a certain photographer who wanted to try and catalog the erosion of the California coastline happened to photograph Barbra Streisand's home. Barbra Streisand did everything she possibly could to try to remove this. Barbara streisand was very upset that anyone would dare photograph her home. So this was put on the Internet and Barbra Streisand found out that her house was photographed. She said this was a violation of privacy. Now mind you, this was literally just some environmentalists that was taking pictures of the coastline. So Barbra Streisand realized this and up until she decided to do something about it the image was downloaded 6 times. 6 people were interested in her home. But once she filed a lawsuit to try to prevent anyone from finding out where the house was, the picture became international news and was downloaded 420,000 times in the following month. The lawsuit was eventually dismissed because there really is no violation of privacy to photograph what you can see in a helicopter. This started something known as the streisand effect. It's a phenomenon that occurs when an attempt to hide, remove or censor information, has the unintended consequence of increasing awareness of that information. Often via the Internet. This is exactly what is happening right now with Merrick Garland and the national school board association. In an attempt to censor moms and dads to show up to the school board meeting, just like how Barbra Streisand wanted to censor her home from being on the Internet. We're only 6 people went and saw it. As a result of that and the national school board association and Merrick Garland going after, the grassroots push of parents that have started to care about what's happening to their kids education. We are now seeing more people talk about the national school board association story than ever before.

Gov. Abbott Vaccine Mandate Ban Under Fire
"I want to play for you a clip of Greg Abbott on Fox Sunday with Maria bartiromo yesterday and then get your reaction to it here is governor rabbit of Texas. Well, you make a good point about all the people resigning because that's one of the problems with regard to the supply chain because so many people who are being forced to get a vaccine do not want to do that and they hints they're leaving their jobs. However, to answer your question, clearly, what President Biden is doing is unconstitutional. There is zero authority in the constitution that gives the president or his administration, the authority to mandate anybody taking a vaccine. And that's why we feel very confident. So stop right there, John burch, I agree with this so far as it goes to people not employed by the federal government. Do you agree with this as alliance defending involved in any of the vaccination litigation? Absolutely, we're involved in litigation. And when this executive order comes out, we would very much like to file a couple of lawsuits to challenge it. The federal government is supposed to be one of limited powers. And the states and the local governments are where general police and health and safety regulations should be taking place. And we feel very confident about bringing those arguments to the federal court system.

How Democrats Rigged a Presidential Election with Mollie Hemingway
"But kind of walk through some of the things that you found in researching this because this is one of the most under research topics in the history of news. You have the entire news media just not just uninterested, but they're invested in making sure you don't talk about it. Exactly right. So one of the things that I think is very interesting is that the same democratic operative who ran the Russia lie. That was the lie that Donald Trump stole the 2016 election by colluding with Russia. His name is Mark Elias. He was at Perkins cooey which is this big democratic firm. He recently left to start his own firm at more money and have more power and control. And he was the one that funneled the secretive Russia lie. That was where Hillary Clinton paid for opposition research. It was just inventions, lies, that Donald Trump was planning to steal the 2016 election and that he did steal the 2016 election. They actually have kept it going, this entire time. His name is Marc Elias. He's also the guy who ran the democratic operation to change all voting laws leading up to the 2020 election. And that meant different things in different states. So that could be about watering down the integrity of mail in balloting, that could be expanding the period of time in which you vote so that you're not really sure how many people voted or when they have to get their ballots in by. And he has this array of different groups that he works with, whether they're democratic operatives or nonprofit nonpartisan groups that are actually just kind of arms of the Democratic Party, who would have them file lawsuits. And so it was just this wide ranging operation to weaken the integrity of the election system. And because of COVID, you know, this is something that he had been wanting to do for decades, but because of COVID, suddenly all these judges or other people were more amenable

Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich Brings Lawsuit Against ASU
"Okay, so now I want to get into where you can talk a little bit more about this. Is that right? Yes. Yes and no. I mean, we should preface this with well, let me preface it for my personal opinion. I think colleges are ripping people off. Yes. I think it's become a legalized scam for a lot of young people and you and I kind of hit it off when you started to say, well, Charlie, you don't understand what ASU has been doing. And so this is kind of like the third rail in our office here because we have so many that went ASU and they have some sort of loyalty to it. You want ASU to support a sun devil. There you go. And so for me, I just think they're ripping people off, families are going into debt and it's not right. The floor is yours. Walk us through what you're doing from the attorney general's office. This issue. And let me just preface this by saying that in the difficulty is, look, I literally the university and their law firm Perkins cooey his father more than 200 page bar complaint against. And people don't know that. And even my own lawyer has told me not to talk about it. I've been told not to talk about the subject, and that's why just this past week, the state Supreme Court accepted one of our cases for statesmen court on one of our lawsuits against the university sweetheart real estate deals. They accepted that case, and so then you get folks at me as you criticizing a saying stuff, but I'm not allowed to say anything because I can't I'm a lawyer so they file bar complaints every time I say anything can I say something about that though, which is that this is exactly what they do. Anyone up and down the conservative ladder and I know you have to be careful commenting on this for obvious reasons, but they go through the politics of personal destruction. Yeah. Like, you start to investigate something we don't like. We're going to use Perkins cooey or whatever coy, which is Hillary Clinton's like favorite law firm, by the way. Alongside, you know, the other one she used to use all the money that the dossier but Facebook uses Perkins, you know, Goldman Sachs does all of them to try to go after you to try to suppress you. And that means you're doing something significant. Well, I'm going to tell the folks from the university and from Perkins cooey. That means we're going to have to listen its entire podcast. We're going to have to listen to this because this is what happens. They listen to me whenever I talk about them, and then all of a sudden there'll be some things like this on, you know, this show would ever. So I have not actually talked about this for a long time. So thank you for letting me talk about this because I feel like it's been before and so this our lawsuit actually began or my fight with the universities began. And I didn't want. I mean, you've done amazing job amazing work exposing the hypocrisy and the left wing bias universities. I did not feel folks like you were doing it. I did not want to become this anti whatever higher education person, but what happened was we were involved in litigation is all started. The universities, here in Arizona, we're giving in state tuition for people that didn't have legal status. So we literally in 2017 went to the Court of Appeals we won. Three nothing at the Court of Appeals because voters in 2006 in Arizona had approved a ballot measure that said, if you do not have legal status, you can not get in state tuition. Period,

"Every Thursday. But on this night on the corner of 14th Street and Eighth Avenue, their worlds collided. Are you married? You don't you don't Tommy Chong is Chinese American and works out of the NYPD is fifth Precinct in Manhattan, which covers Little Italy and Chinatown were just standing there. Maintaining peace and safety and Mr Harper just starts with all the new anti Asian statements. Chung is a Native New Yorker and a 16 Year veteran of the force. He says. While he's used difficult encounters with the public. This one just crossed the line as a police officer. We sort of expect the anti police attitude. You know, we're here to protect their first Amendment right to to express that, But I got to say like this encounter was something that was Never experienced before. Never experienced this level of racism and hatred directed, you know pretty much personally directly at me and and pretty much the Asian community. Chung is now taking the unprecedented step of suing Harper in what his lawyer says is the first lawsuit of its kind. That's what I do to every officer. It doesn't matter what color Terrell Harper when he's not out protesting as a comedian. He says he was just roasting the detective and law enforcement in general. I told him this is how this uniform base me feel and I started going in on him. That was my attempt to show him racism. We're fighting this because it is upon us because of our color of our skin. Don't forget about the color of your skin. Don't think that you put that uniform on And think that you're not subjected to the same thing. Harper insists he doesn't have a hateful bone in his body. I'll go to the age of marches, Black lives matter. I'm with the trans lives. I'm here to unify everybody. And that's that's my whole thing. Harper says. It has nothing to do with race. He just wanted to provoke officers into thinking about racism his own way. But now Harper faces accusations of racism. The very thing he says. He's dedicated his life to fighting. They made it like I was racist towards Asian people and the things that I'm saying everything and it probably looks like that, and that's because they took it out of context. Incidents like this one have exacerbated the tensions between the black and Asian American communities. At the same time, the data suggests that only a fraction of anti Asian hate crimes are committed by black people. But while hate crimes are under reported, the damage done can be long lasting. At the heart of this lawsuit is the fine line between hate crimes and free speech. The First Amendment commits us to a marketplace of ideas. Cardozo Law School professor Echo Janka. There's a sort of American view that the real answer for hateful speech is more good speech, right? That's long than the American Mantra about it. But not all speech is protected. There is a small set of X sanctions for that hate speech is illegal in America only if it tends towards exciting violence. Which gets us back to Detective Chang's lawsuit, hate speech conservatives, evidence of the racial animus of which you committed the crime. So if I'm beating you up, and I'm yelling, ou Asian cat eating gelato guy, whatever people things he's saying. It's not the hate speech are illegal. It's beating somebody else that to me go and then the hate speech will amplify the punishment because he's doing it for a prohibited reason. But in this case, both sides agree that there was no beating. Harper says he never touched tongue. But there is a dispute about whether the protesters spit while he was shouting and spit on him whatsoever. I don't care if we've got a protest or not. If I spit on that man's face, he would have locked me up basic. That's an assault, and he's right about that. Detective Chunk still wants to have his day in court civil court to take a stand against anti Asian hate. There's a lot of confidence lost from the Asian community in the city to protect them. The justice system isn't protecting the law abiding citizens. So the only way to really hold people accountable is by going the civil route because the city isn't protecting us. Still, Professor Janka thinks it could be an uphill battle in court in America. We've made a very conscious decision. Not uncontradicted Shal. Lots of people still debated. But we made a very conscious decision that the First Amendment protects hate speech. Where does that leave to detective and activist? That's for the courts to decide. Joseph Gedeon W N.

We had the the federal prosecutor said that he hadn't had one for fourteen years and They have these weird things called tracks here for their lawsuits. That don't really foil lawsuits. Don't really fit very well into any of the tracks so they kinda get jammed into one track and you have to make a square peg fit into a round hole on this track but it's different dealing with them here because they're in one sense they're more laid back about it But in another you know they start getting concerned over when you use the word. Terror especially at a state level can was talking about the fusion centers in local state judges. They don't ever deal with something. That's related to terrorism. That's always federal so when you have a fusion center that's operated by the state near using the state records law to try to get at these records. The state just throws the word terror in there in the judges. Are they get so concerned. Like oh you know what this touches on national security i. We need to protect our national security. And it's frustrating at a state level here for sure and Like ken said our federal our state lawsuit here in florida department of law enforcement. I think the judge just recognize that they need to give some records but also wanted to to allow for a concession since there was purported terror angle to it and allowed them to redact a little bit more than i think that they should have been able to redact but Now we could have taken on appeal in wasted more time on that or just accept what they give us in in. Go from there. So do you feel like the changing of the guard from trump to biden so to speak makes a difference in in any of this Said difference. I'm not even just talking better tangible difference as far as the Foyer goes but as far as the public reception to these things. As far as people caring about this lawsuit after imagine some degree price some people that like anything that can be viewed on as a judgment on the trump administration. Who suddenly you know stopped caring or even view it as problematic when you bring up the same under a biden administration. Oh yeah. I cease to exist on january twentieth. But i i've been reporting to administration so i'm used to that tendency and With biden's One the things that maybe a little more optimistic about it was that he's just less. Less smooth than obama was pretty pretty charismatic. You know where. I think that by lacks that. So hopefully it's gonna give him more space I'll keep doing the same stuff i have been doing. Mean has really changed. My hope also is that people will understand How independent a lot of these agencies are becoming so when you look at the way that trump used department homeland security. They basically became a sort of political police where he was For example sending into portland oregon to you know put down the protests there These these these these border patrol agents that are supposed to fight cartels. It's called vortex. Border patrol tactical units erasing those to respond. Protesters unrest broke windows at the worst kind of thing in in portland and what's interesting about that. Is that the officials. there didn't want it so senate wanted the mayor of portland and want it. This state reps wanted. And so this was just you know just flagrant contravention of like any purported concerns about states rights and all that stuff that republicans have been doing for your nearest In that way it became.

"I think many of us are close to fed up with what we've seen from Republicans and the Wisconsin Legislature, especially now where they decided to This big roll over man over In this instance the request to take action against Bowen occurred in September. No, I understand. Wisconsin Legislature pocketed paychecks for all of last year, even though none of them did a damn thing after March or April.

Wisconsin police chief made a request reasonable. We had a terrible crime problem. A riot that broke out in my community. And one of your members was not only a participant in the illegal behavior. But lied to police and lie to the media about it. Will you deal with it? Interesting that so many people have demanded that the police department clean up their act, but the assembly refuses to clean up its act. Some of these markets servant of members of the assembly. I wonder what their excuse is. But calling people out for their acquiescence of late. What is your excuse? You're a Republican member of the assembly for not Passing any resolution it all condemning Boeing for his actions. We know this. We know Bowen lie because we know Men's They didn't fire the gun shot into his own house. Another guy has been arrested, charged that is admitted it. So board might about it. Lied about that.

It's all things considered from NPR News. I'm Mary Louise Kelly and I'm Ari Shapiro. After months of amplifying President Trump's false claims about election fraud, Fox News, the Fox Business Network and Newsmax have run awkward segments rebutting those claims. That's because those wild allegations have led to one lawsuit and the threat of more. NPR's David Folkenflik has this report on how those networks are trying to backpedal in an effort to avoid further litigation. You remember Fox business host Lou Dobbs? Good old, A terrible crime has been perpetrated upon President Trump in the American voting Public Loo dubs Defense attorneys Sidney Powell cited a whistle blowers, Dunning affidavit. It says smart Matics technology. We was used to rig elections that Venezuela it is now in the quote didna of every vote tabulating companies, software and system. Ever Since the election, Dobbs has had on guests who asserted fraud by Smartmatic, which makes voting machine software, as well as by another company, Dominion, which makes voting machines, Though Dobs acknowledge their denials of fraud, Smartmatic isn't standing for it anymore and has threatened Fox with litigation. Outside, lawyers say it may have a strong case. You saw the first sign of retreat Friday evening in a surreal segment on Dobbs Show. Have you seen any evidence that Smartmatic software was used to flip votes anywhere in the U. S in this election it presented to producers disembodied voice Questions focused on Smartmatic the questions posted on the screen. I have not seen any evidence that Smartmatic software was used to delete change alter anything related to vote tabulation. The guest was Eddie Perez, the global director of tech development at a nonprofit called open source. Election technology. Segment looked like an infomercial and sounded like a deposition. Have you seen any evidence of Smartmatic sending us votes to be tabulated in foreign countries? No, I'm not. Smartmatic software was, as press said several times on Lee used in Los Angeles County during the 2020 elections. Perez basically shot down one allegation after another about Smartmatic in any of the conversations that I had with Fox is people or the booking agent or the producer. At no time. Did anybody give me any indication that Smartmatic would be a topic of conversation at all? Much less being the exclusive topic of conversation. Perez tells NPR that Fox had asked him to discuss claims about the integrity of the vote. More broadly, Frankly, I was very surprised when When the final question that they needed was done, and they simply said, Thank you. That was my first indication. Oh, it's it's we're not even going in that direction in this sort of discussion. Even so, press says he felt oddly glad to participate because Fox hosts have helped to spread so much election disinformation. Segment ran onto other prominent Fox shows to Fox News staffers say the video was an effort to appease Smartmatic. It's lawyers declined to comment to NPR. Some Fox News viewers have defected to the even more feverishly pro Trump Newsmax TV. Get on Monday, Newsmax host John Tobacco read that network's own epic walk back. Newsmax would like to clarify its news coverage and note that it has not reported as true certain claims made about these companies. He offered a tour of the increasingly baroque and unfounded allegations being made about Smartmatic and Dominion Dominion has stated the company has no ownership relationship with the Pelosi family. Feinstein family, the Clinton family, Hugo Chavez or the Government of Venezuela. Newsmax CEO Christopher Ruddy tells NPR that was merely clarifying the network's position. That didn't stop a Dominion employees from suing Newsmax, along with other right wing media outfits and the Trump campaign alleging defamation. The employee said he received violent threats and was forced into hiding. David Folkenflik.

"On a legal behaviors and in return the service would receive the protection of the safe harbor so part of the lawsuit was alleging that Napster was willfully turning a blind eye to illegal behavior on the service now for the record Napster did try to comply with this but they were only able to demonstrate that their their ability to prevent illegal file sharing was ninety nine point four percent effective and the prosecution argued that that wasn't good enough it had to be a hundred percent effective which led some people to say this isn't actually an attack on Napster this is an attack on peer to peer file sharing as a strategy in the first place and so it led to pretty ugly fight the lawsuit also led to Napster shutting down its existing service in two thousand one of the lawsuit kept on going at that point the following year a judge and an appeals court both found that Napster was liable for numerous copyright copyright violations in separate lawsuits with artists like doctor dray and Metallica Napster would settle out of court paying handsomely to do so and Napster would bankrupt they would eventually reemerge in a very different format as an online music store it was not really the same entity as the original company that like I said that company gone bankrupt another company came in and bought up all the assets and in fact there's actually been a couple of different music related services called Napster since the original shut down and Napster wasn't the only entity the R. I. double a and music artists when after as I mentioned earlier individuals who use the services were also targeted and as my colleague bend bowline might say here's where it gets crazy because the industry went thermo nuclear against people and not only did it hurt a lot of people it didn't actually achieve the goal that the industry had set out to do which was essentially to scare off pirates so that they wouldn't copy and share music files as it turned out the actions didn't curtail that behavior at all so to go into all the different lawsuits would take a few episodes all by itself so I'm just gonna hit a few highlights or you might want to call them low lights now I'm pulling a lot of this information from a white paper that was published in two thousand eight by the Electronic Frontier Foundation titled R. I. double eight verses the people five years later in April two thousand three the R. I. double eight sued for college students the students would ultimately settle out of court not necessarily because they felt they had done something wrong or illegal but because going into the court system would be very expensive much more expensive even if they won the fight they might end up having to spend way more money and legal fees then if they settled out of court and in at least one of those cases the amount of the settlement was exactly the same as the amount the student happen to have in his bank account and effectively wiped out his college fund the reaction against the R. I. double a was mostly negative with many people saying that this was an overstep that it was being far too cruel in its pursuit of pirates and the the payments the the penalties people are facing we're far greater than what was justified on September eighth two thousand three the R. I. double A. would sue two hundred sixty one Americans alleging that those people were illegally sharing music on peer to peer networks and as many have written in the year since it was a particularly aggressive and confrontational and ultimately stupid move after all the industry was attacking music fans the very consumers that supported the industry were the ones that the R. I. double a we're going after so in hindsight it seems pretty clear this move would alienate a lot of people even those who had never illegally downloaded a song and industry that use its own customers is not likely to see a sales job as a result that's not how you build customer loyalty and not only was it aggressive and ineffective it was a faulty process the R. I. double A. was collecting IP addresses by joining the same file sharing services that parents were using and then searching for people who are uploading music that was in the represent a record labels directories in the R. I. double A. but an I. P. address doesn't automatically tell you the physical address of a device to get that information the R. A. double A. actually had to go after internet service providers or ISPs so the ISPs have an incentive to withhold that personal information of their customers because the handing over customer data is a great way to to lose your customer's confidence the R. I. doubly leverage the rules of the DMCA to force the hands of the internet service providers in the eyes peas didn't comply they wouldn't be protected under the rules of the DMCA not first the R. I. double a tried to subpoena I SP customers names and and addresses from the I. S. P.'s just with allegations of copyright infringement so in other words this wasn't as a result of a lawsuit or even they didn't even present evidence to support their claims they said we suspect the person using this I. P. address is committing piracy we want their name and address so they weren't coming forward with any stronger now a request in that that tactic ultimately failed as various public interest groups and the EFF challenge that practice in court and the court agreed saying no you need more than just an allegation to get a hold of that information there was a period though when the court was still deciding this where the practice was effectively legal or at least it wasn't illegal then in that period the R. I. double A. issued fifteen hundred subpoenas to various ISPs now some of those two hundred sixty one people that the IRA a suit in September two thousand three we're probably fairly active in copyright infringement they may very well have been the appropriate people to go after at least from the perspective of these people were actively committing this infringing behavior but there were some on that list who won a lot of sympathy from the public like Brianna Lohara she was twelve years old and the R. I. double lake came after her like she was some sort of evil super genius she was living in a public housing development in New York City and her mom was a single mother raising this kid and they were targeted by this initial blast of lawsuits and her only real option was to sell the case out of court because there's no way she could afford going to court and defending herself that settlement will include a two thousand dollar fine and the requirement that she apologize publicly so here's the thing turns out having a massive multi billion dollar conglomerate of companies come after and forced a young the poor girl to apologize publicly isn't the best PR movement in the world it seemed pretty clear that Laharl wasn't some sort of existential threat to the R. I. double way and this was a real abuse of the legal system and then there were all the people who were targeted who clearly had nothing to do with the legal downloads Sarah ward was one of those people she was accused of using kazaa to download hard core rap music but this grandmother probably didn't do that seeing as how the only computer she owned was a mac computer and because all was only compatible with windows machines she wasn't apparently running virtual windows machine on her computer so chances are she was not the right person the R. I. double a did eventually withdraw the lawsuit but did not apologize for making that mistake and it wasn't the only mistake the list of people that was sued by the R. I. double eight also included a family in Georgia that not only didn't have an internet connection they didn't have a computer at all there was no way for them to commit the crime that are I double A. accuse them up there even people on that list who were actually destroying so clearly the R. I. double a was using a very wide very inaccurate net to try and catch a few big fish as a message to pirates everywhere in the two hundred sixty one lawsuits were just the beginning over the course of several years nearly thirty thousand Americans were targeted by the R. I. double a in an effort to create an environment that would discourage illegal file sharing so what does that accomplish well mostly they made the R. I. double a look like a vicious on caring group of greedy corporate jerks who were willing to financially ruin the lives of people who are already vulnerable in an effort to secure their own bottom line so it didn't win them a whole lot of good will and piracy can ten you'd on abated and there's no big shock there we've seen time and time again the more extreme punishment do not discourage crime but for some reason we keep trying that approach anyway well the industries were able to shut down service as you know they were able to to target the actual services not necessarily the users other services would pop up and some were operating in foreign countries which made it more difficult for the R. I. double a to go after them because they were outside the jurisdiction of the United States legal system it would lead to the industry lobbying for new legislation the U. S. to force ISPs to block access to those services that were outside the U. S. but I've covered some of those efforts in previous episodes of tech stuff and as I mentioned before the R. I. double a wasn't help by claiming piracy has a demonstrable calculable affect on diminished sales because it's impossible to equate every download as a lost sale it's quite possible that the person who illegally downloaded a file would have never purchased an album or song otherwise it's just as possible that after they downloaded it they would go out and buy the song legally there are people who did that too they might just download it to listen to it to determine whether or not they want to go buy the album so it works both ways was no way to say eight eight any single pirated instance would lead to a loss in revenue so the justification the R. I. double a was using when it was deciding what damages it should be receiving from people was completely unjustifiable is based on faulty logic you can't say you owe me X. dollars because you cost me X. dollars when you can't be sure that's the case so it was a huge issue ultimately the music labels that fund the R. I. double A. began to withdraw their funding and this was for a lot of different reasons but one of them was that the country was entering a recession and that coupled with the already established trend of lower record sales was trying to put the squeeze on record label company budgets and there was the possibility that the R. I. double a would just dissolve completely due to lack of funding so the industry organisations stopped pursuing lawsuits not because it only had a change of heart and said you know what we've been real jerks about this instead they stopped it because they ran out of cash to keep doing it they did maintain more lawsuits against the services but they start going after people now let me be clear I don't think that does good I don't think it's a good thing to share copyrighted material without authorization I do think that artists should be compensated for their work then if you want to access something that's behind a paywall you should either pay for that access or you just do without you you don't work your way around it you don't trying to get to the content without paying for it otherwise if you do that then you have removed the monetary incentive to create something and there are creative types who want to create no matter what you know but most of them also want to make a living they have to pay bills and to be able to eat.
"first lawsuit" Discussed on Newsradio 1200 WOAI
"Now in his pocket, and then fighting for the rest of the money while we're building the wall progress has not stopped its ongoing as we speak doing the repairs to other parts of the wall and that that's Lynnwood Lynnwood. I when I interviewed I talked to him when I talked to him and interviewed him. He was I think we kept him on for an hour when he took on Nichols Sandman and cut you remember the Covington kids that were confronted by the black Hebrew Israelites getting in their face and calling them every name in the book. And then a native American activists eighth and Phillips and it was intimidating in. The whole story was wrong. Nobody nobody in the press bothered to even ask a single question. Like, they never do. And they rush to judgment and no due process, and because it hurts Trump. It's days and days of coverage. Now, Lynn woods. First lawsuit was against the Washington Post, some two hundred fifty million dollars. And now the new one is against fake news CNN for about the same amount of money with my buddy, Mark Levin last night. And there are potentially if we start adding in small websites other media outlets traditional media outlets because they're all guilty of the same thing. CNN is now named by Lynnwood a second two hundred and fifty million dollars slander suit Lynn is going to win. They went on and on for two full days, smearing slandering libeling besmirching the character of this kit. You know, look, he's not a public. Although the they're going to try and make highschool care to public figure who did it and said nothing just because he went on a school trip your sewing CNN Monday or Tuesday. Yes, asked her how much we'll aspect because of the way they went after nNcholas so viciously that the claim for his reputational damage. We'll be higher than it was against the Washington Post. The post was fifty million dollars for the reputational damage, and we can discuss why that figure two hundred million in damages punitive damages or designed to punish and to deter change conduct. Don't ever do this again. I would think the pinch damages award against CNN. We'll see we'll be at least the same two hundred million dollars as it was against the Washington Post, but the compensatory damages nNcholas reputation that number I expect will be hired. Listen, I I would advise nNcholas salmon and Lynnwood doesn't need my advice. This kid under pressure was amazing. I would never have been as composed patient as he was smiling. Trying to show that he's peaceful and telling the only thing he said is to another kid. No, no, don't engage these guys meaning the black. Hebrew, israelites. Budget? Yeah. You got these down here in the middle of a native rally would they dirty? You got all these dirty behind you. Red make America great again. Fight your brother. He kept his mega hat, which is now a trigger point as we know for many liberals, maybe keep that hat one day. It could be worth a lot. But CNN fake news, and they're not gonna win this suit. Now, maybe it doesn't ever get to court. Maybe they do an out of court settlement. But Linda's Cussing this case in detail with Mark last night was really spectacular. And he said that CNN was probably the more vicious in its attacks on nNcholas, then even the Washington Post and CNN goes into millions of individual homes, and he said CNN couldn't resist the idea that here's a young boy with a make America great again cap on and they go after him. They really went after nNcholas with the idea that he was part of a mob that he was attacking the black. Hebrew, Israelites yelling racist slurs at them. What are the exact opposite had happened? But nobody bothered to investigate. Judge cavenaugh. We can you want to run through the cases again, this mullet case they wanted to believe small in the worst way. Now, he's got sixteen felony charges against him. They got it wrong. The BuzzFeed story what about the Richard jewel case itself where it all began for Lynnwood..
