Scalia's went to Neil Gorsuch instead of Merrick Garland. For all the fighting. There's been over Justices Scalia and Ginsburg in life. They were very good friends. People always find it surprising that they were such good friends, Christopher Scully's the Eighth of Incident. Scalia's nine Children. There's a new collection published of his father's writing called The Essential Scalia. Their friendship went back. Really to the early eighties, when they were judges together on the D C circuit Court of Appeals, which is kind of like the second most important court in the country, and they they had a good working relationship that which really started back then they would help each other revised their drafts and their opinions. Apparently, the other judges on that court really didn't like getting advice about their writing and how to improve the clarity of what they're writing in the force of their arguments. But Justice Ginsburg liked getting and receiving that kind of advice, and so did my dad, and they formed what he called a mutual improvement society during their time on the court there. And And they had other things in common. They were they had similar backgrounds and that they were both New Yorkers grew up in New York around the same time, different boroughs but around the same time and shared a love of opera. Good wine eating good food. Both of their thousands were excellent cooks. Marty Ginsburg, in particular, is kind of a legendary cook, who would put together wonderful meals every New Year's Eve and they would celebrate New Year's Every every year is well. So you know, despite all their differences, and all the many things they disagreed about, including a number of opinions in this collection. They had a wonderful friendship were able to kind of focus on the things they had in common. Your dad in Justice Ginsburg, I don't know the statistics on how often they concurred or dissented on cases. But I imagine that they disagreed. Maybe as much as any two Recent justices have my right. Yeah, I think that that sounds right. I don't know the statistics, either. I think people would be surprised by how often they agreed with each other. But on the real hot button cultural cases, they often disagreed one of her most important, most famous opinions. Was Virginia Military Institute case from the mid nineties. And my My father wrote a dissent to that case, which is in this collection, the essentials, Scalia and it was hey actually gave her the draft of that descent a little bit earlier than one usually does just so that she would have more time to kind of Deal with it and grapple grapple with his arguments. And and, yeah, some of his most staying the sense we're in response to opinions. She didn't necessarily right but but joined, And I think that's probably true. Vice versa. Tell us very about the big bouquet of roses she got from him. My dad would get her roses for her birthday and I guess the Ah, I think the last time he did that. So the year before he died, one of the editors of the Essential Scalia Judge Jeffrey Sutton was visiting my father in chambers on on Justice Ginsburg's birthday. And he saw that my dad had two dozen roses for Justice Ginsburg and Judge Sutton started teasing Dad saying, You know, I haven't even gotten my wife two dozen roses over the course of our entire marriage. Why would you do this? And besides, When was the last time she cited with you on a really important 54 decision? You know, he's poking fun, You know, not not really being serious, but My dad gave a serious answer, which was some things are more important than votes. As I think I just kind of a great encapsulation of their of their relationship of their friendship they had they had Very different opinions of politics and of their jobs as a zoo judges and of what laws, men and with the Constitution, man. But, uh, how they voted wasn't the biggest factor in their relationship. It wasn't that those opinions didn't matter. And it wasn't that they compromised their beliefs for each other. But they didn't let those very strongly held beliefs undermine their very deep friendship collection of Supreme Court. Justice Antonin Scalia is writing sort of like a greatest hits album. It's opinions and other writing about the law and the Constitution again called the Essential Scalia. This is really just a collection of his greatest Legal writings, opinions, speeches, essays and they collected together give a really good sense of white. Exactly. He was such a significant Supreme Court justice on it. They're having in one collection really makes it tangible for anybody understand that we'll just as a legal reference work. You've got to think it's going to end up being bought by or four A lot of lawyers and judges know absolutely in law students. I hope you know that he he wrote. Clearly, he wrote, Hey, had so many memorable phrases and his opinions. His logic was so strong and convincing that people just kind of they often went to his opinions first. And so it's good for people to kind of have that as a resource to keep going to those opinions. Even you know, even after His passing is also besides the legal community. It's also like you said. It's very readable, even for non lawyers for just a general interest audience who might, but he was just simply a very, very good writer. Yeah, it's exactly right. He hey, wrote. For? I guess we would now call it out of transparency. You know, Even when he was writing Supreme court opinions, he understood that they should be understood themselves by everyday citizens, not just legal eagles and people with legal degrees. He kind of a recurring theme of his opinions. Is that people should know what the court courts are doing and people that the court should not usurp power that properly belongs to the people. And I think that kind of reverence for the Democratic order is is kind of manifest in his in the clarity of his writing a lot of times if he had a vote, a personal vote on how a case would turn out it may or may not a lot of times did a line with how he ruled, But sometimes it probably wouldn't have right. Yeah, I think that's true. And that's especially true in one example is when he sided with the majority in a flag burning case. The majority ruled that, um, it was constitutional sorry from burning the flag was constitutionally protected speech under the First Amendment so prohibiting that in the state law was unconstitutional. My father often explained that he did not like Three idea of flag burning. If he were a king, he would ban it. But clearly to him falls under the protection of the protection of the First Amendment, and a lot of conservatives to this day do not like that opinion. My father thought the Constitution was clear about that. There are many examples in this collection, the essential Scalia of instances in which he stands up for the rights of the accused defendant's rights. There's a famous case in here where search and seizure cases as well there a couple of those in here where he just thought, you know the police do not have authority, for example, to use Scans of houses, Tio identify Marilou who was growing marijuana without that was an illegal search examples like that s so if he could just pass a law That was one thing, but actually sorry, there couldn't be even be lost for that because they so clearly violated the Constitution, even though obviously he wouldn't have approved of those particular actions. Sure. Hey, was also notice the talker during oral arguments. He has asked a lot of questions and clearly sometimes, though, they weren't really questions. They were just arguments he was making to his fellow justices. Do you think he went into most cases with his mind made up based on the briefs, and the president is a bad thing, but not usually the case. I think that the justices, you know, I can't say for certain, but my hunch is that they often have to go in with a pretty good idea, but I think for the most part, they do ask questions, not just Not just to be heard or not just to make arguments, but because they want to really engage with the arguments that the lawyers are making in the forward to this collection, Justice Kegan first of all, very happy that she agreed to write this beautiful forward, But she she says that she says just that, you know, Dad would ask these questions because he loved argument and kind of loved mixing it up. It wasn't just kind of wasn't just for show though he did. I think you're right. He was very kind of an engaging speaker and There was some study years ago that that found he was. He was the funniest justice by the standards of he drew the most laughter from the courtroom during oral arguments, which obviously isn't the most important thing to do, but just shows how much he he enjoyed that process that love for debate. Did it? Was it a two way street was? Was he persuadable? Absolutely. That's something justice Kagan mentions in her forward. She doesn't say when she ever changed his mind, but says They change each other's minds at times. Well, Christopher Scalia, It was great to talk, Teo, The book is called The Essential Scalia on the Constitution, the courts and the rule of law. Chris Scalia. Really good to talk to you. Thanks so much, Thanks so much appreciate your time.

Longtime Wisconsin defense lawyer Dean Strang, who is not involved in this case, says the teens, attorneys may well argue self defence, but it has nothing to do in the first instance with being the hero.

"fox news" Discussed on The Book Review
"So I made sure. I, wanted to separate my lives in have my CNN life at my book life, but it was helpful to have. CNN, life because sources were more willing to confide in me because they felt like I understood the business I understood the the pressures I understood the ratings race, and so I was able to speak their language and people to to be more candidate in conversations so that it's actually an advantage. When I thought it was going to be a challenge you ask how I view Fox. I View Fox's rains every day when the ratings reports come in at CNN in some ways, they are arrival to CNN and MSNBC. But in many other ways, Fox's not Fox something different it's almost and identity for people almost a way of life it's vitriolic community. It's this beleaguered news operation that's is thriving website but more than anything else what Fox is is a propaganda machine and I say that gently I, hope because there are real journalists air trying to make a difference trying to report the news, try not to be part of the propaganda problem. But viewers are glued to the Fox and friends programs the five candidy. These are the much more propagandistic programs and I think we can look at the trump years and say the propaganda has worked with the Fox trump base in a way that there's just no equivalent in the Obama years or frankly for that matter in the Bush. Years of the Clinton years, etc. We're recording this on Thursday September third and it was just announced the lineup for the debates that Chris Wallace of Fox News would be moderating. The first debate does not cause you trepidation. Are you concerned looking ahead to the election about the role that Fox News might play? I've been there isn't fair questions to ask about whether while also be using Fox producers and Fox colleagues formulate questions and how foxy will the first debate be Chris Wallace received rave reviews in two thousand sixteen when he moderated debate Chris Wallace in many ways is the exception to the Fox rule. He's able to be a off on his own with his Sunday program. Not influenced by the conspiracy type of programming the that influences Fox the rest of the week I think if anyone at Fox, we're GONNA get this debate pick it was going to be Chris. Wallace, it makes sense. He's kind of one of the deans of a Washington journalism now but but I'll say this Pamela I I feel like five years ago versus today there's. A lot a lot more criticism of people like Chris Wallace and Bret Baier within the journalism community within the television news world tight-knit sometimes incestuous world where people Hug each other in the front and stab each other in the back. Right. There's there's there's a lot more resentment and even discussed with the fact that there are these news anchors at Fox who in. The eyes of their friends are complicit I know that's a that's a tough word but it's true. There's a there's a sense of complicity that if you're working the same channel as these propagandists than you are part of the problem and like I said if anybody is able to be the exception to that rule, it is Chris Wallace but it is still very much. A topic of conversation in the trump here's what do you think I mean if you were offered, for example, a top anchor position on the news side of Fox News would you accept that job? Such a funny hypothetical sense. Since it's so so be on on lightly..

Now he is the anchor of CNN's reliable sources, , the host of its podcast and the author of a New New York Times bestselling Book Hoax Donald, , Trump Fox News, , and dangerous distortion of truth Brian. . Thanks for being here. . Thank you so much. . So you used to be my colleague here at the New York Times way back I don't know when exactly did you leave The Times? ? <hes> twenty thirteen. . Well. . So the moment I remember was in twenty eleven when this early documentary about the Times came out called page one and there was a line in that documentary in which the leat David car says, , I still can't get over the feeling that Brian stelter was a robot assembled to destroy me. . I, , haven't forgot that line. . Because I wonder if you're secretly three people you host. . A Show on CNN you write a daily newsletter you host a weekly podcast you have two small children, , and somehow you wrote a book on this extremely fast moving subject. . That is Donald Trump. . How did you handle that the two small children is the fun part they keep me <hes> saying you know David used to say I still miss him so much used. . To say, , what do you think the story is that I should tell us to say to sources you know if you were writing the story what would you right and that is what I was doing with folks at Fox News and these themes kept coming up especially last year, , which compelled me to go and try to get a book deal I think it. . was last that I wanted to do this and more that I felt like someone had too i. . hope that doesn't sound too cocky but it's true. . There's some things in life. . You just feel like the gotTa go tell this story and I think the only untold story of the trump era that's left maybe is the story of his boxers addiction so I did. . Carve out time in between my other jobs and and frankly wants the pandemic send us all home. . Put us on lockdown just grateful that my wife was able to help with the kids when I was having to finish the final chapters of this book. . So what is that story the relationship between Donald Trump and Fox News obviously, , it's the full subject of your book. . People who are even casual viewers are news consumers are aware that there's a close relationship there yes. . I think we all are aware that the president gets fed information and misinformation from Fox but I think it's even more extreme and even more dangerous than people realize it happens more often and the connections or even cozier than than folks realize I oftentimes in coverage. . Of the White House reporters leave out what I think is the key piece, , the key ingredient, , which is he got that idea from Fox. . He gained that idea from foxy gained that conspiracy theory from Fox and with this pandemic this year staffers at Fox told me they felt like the coverage was hazardous to our viewers. . The coverage was dangerous. . The coverage was unforgivable. . I really just tried to step away just the Messenger for these anonymous sources mostly anonymous did speak on the record who felt like the coverage is hurting the country. . All right. So . a defender, a , Fox News skeptic cure might say so what trump follows Fox News is leads you know democratic presidents in the past have taken their cues from the editorials editorials of the New York Times. What's . the difference? ? I think. . It's so much more intense. . Now, , Fox's influences constant when trump threatened North Korea, , and said, , he had a bigger button than Kim Jong Un. . It was because of a Fox segment when he grants pardoned, , it's because Fox when he attacks big technology company because of Fox, , when he raged about migrant caravans, it , was because of Fox and it's not that he's getting the best possible information still from the best sources in the world know he's getting it from a bunch of of. .

"And author of the new book hoax. Donald Trump Fox News and dangerous distortion of Truth Bryant the idea that president trump and Fox have a symbiotic relationship obviously isn't breaking news for most Americans. So what is the most important thing you think readers learn from your book? I think the situation is even worse than people realize and when I say worse I mean trump is even more dependent on Fox than people realize he's even more addicted to the program in than people realize and because of that, he gets misinformed he gets misinformation then spreads to the rest of the country. I think the evidence of that in the book is. Overwhelming I think the other reason why this story matters why hoax matters is because during this pandemic, the commentary on Fox has had life and death consequences I had many staffers inside the network, spill their guts to me saying this content, this coverage, the downplaying of the pandemic last winter was hazardous to the viewers health. I? Think it's important that their voices be. Heard the book's been out nearly a week now, what have you heard kind of back channel from Fox's executive suite I've not heard a significant denials from anybody to Fox about anything in the book what I have heard our staffers who trusted me confidentially to speak with me that they are pleased that their stories are getting out. These are journalists who feel suffocated. In squeezed by pro-trump propaganda, the channel, you talk about how the prince money two billion dollars in profits a year you had there been a lot of stories think you've written some particularly over the past year for example, Tucker Carlson show at eight PM how they've lost a lot of big name brand sponsors has that made a dent a business dent in the company. If it has made a dent it has not been measurable. I think deep down inside Fox advertising sales people would probably rather have a star at eight pm who is more palatable to advertisers because they'd probably be able to charge even more for the ads in his our that said, Lachlan Murdoch and Tucker, have an Alliance Bay agree that talent should not be hounded off the airwaves by. Boycotts they described this as economic harassment and they say they can't stand for it. So Fox stands by Karlsson Carlsson draws millions of viewers and you know who prompts him up my pillow. Mike Lindell is the sponsor of Tucker show by far, and in some ways, my pillow has come in and fill the gaps when other advertisers have left if you had to say that the one person. At Fox, most calling the shots is Sean Hannity is it Laughlin is a Rupert Murdoch. There is no clear strong leader at Fox, news who is trying to manage the talent. So as a result, all the stars are in their own fiefdoms Carlson does whatever he wants Sean Hannity does whatever he wants and the Murdochs are seemingly content with this because it is so profitable there are very. Few occasions where there's real accountability for what is set on the air and there's something outrageous or offensive. I would say a Hannity because he has the highest ratings he's the biggest star is most in-command, but Carlson is sometimes beating Hannity. Now it's created tension between the two men. Tucker is very much on the rise and people even talking about him as a twenty, twenty, four presidential candidate. Brian. Talk a lot in your book about the Relationship Between Sean Hannity and Donald Trump. Hannity has always been a Republican supporter. No matter almost who that Republican is what Hannity truly think of trump. He has told friends and colleagues at Fox that he thinks trump is sometimes bat bleep crazy milaoda cursing westbank. Well the quotas obviously bat shit crazy others at Fox described a similar view from Hannity he would describe the president as a run on sentence hard to get a word in when the president's rambling. This is in line with what we've seen in the president and his rally isn't in his phone interviews of Hannity. But on the air, as you said, Hannity, is absolutely the number one supporter of the GOP 'cause and I. Think. He is so committed to those principles and to his business model that he doesn't say what he really thinks about trump. He only shares it in private with his friends and this is not just true for Hannity. It's also true for executives of Fox for anchors at Fox who feel bake can't really express what's going on. They can't fully fact check the lies because the network is State supported. TV let me ask. You kind of touch on this a certain spots in the book. But yeah, you spoke to over one hundred current Fox offers a lot of former Fox staffer. Stupid. But lots of current Fox staffers for the ones who say they are very uncomfortable with this dynamic is simple as they stay for the money. Well, there certainly are true believers they wanna say that very clearly, there are true believers there who are trying to support the MAG agenda but there's a lot of journalist who feel squeezed and left out they. Can't get on the air to tell the truth they feel like they can't stand up to the lies and the the rhetoric coming from the white. House. And they stay largely of money also because of lack of other options also because of a sense of family at, Fox, you know us against the world it can be pretty intoxicating to feel like you're part of something special that has such influence with the White House. But at night in our over the weekend or the next day, sometimes I hear regrets I. Hear frustration about the situation vox and many journalists have left I. think that's one of the most revealing parts of the book. I have stories of journalists and commentators who decided to leave Fox because they couldn't take it anymore. Obviously Shep Smith as an example, everyone knows he laughed but also other journalists you might not heard about who decided to leave because it didn't want to defend the film separations policy or they didn't want to defend Charlottesville. It's those sorts of things that add up to a story about Fox. Kind of fighting over what its future is like what is the sole the Fox News, who do you think will be the next name Fox News talent to leave I. Don't see anybody leaving immediately because Suzanne Scott the head of the network has resigned most of her stars to multiyear contracts. There's always speculation about Hannity going off and working with trump on trump TV in the future. I actually think this point Fox is bigger than trump and if there is a rival network launched by the trump family in the. Event that he doesn't win reelection Think Fox will do just fine in that anemic as one person there said to me, we are a monopoly we are benefiting from our monopoly status. There's nobody that's been able to successfully challenge Fox but you know there's always that potential of a talent exodus when their contracts are up, people could try to leave and start something new but I think it's a far fetched idea right now when Roger Ailes was finally kicked to the curb at Fox a lot of folks on. The other side of the aisle liberals et cetera leaving the sexual harassment piece out of Kinda celebrated that Roger Ailes was out and thought maybe it was a new day at Fox. I get the sense from reading your book that you think that ailes had stuck around for the trump presidency fox today might look a little different on air. Yes. I think he would have done more to stand up to trump for example, taking away our time if the president was out there calling Fox fake news because that's the Thing, right trump even criticises fox. He goes after the news anchors there. He humiliates them insults them on twitter. He causes lots of hate mail in a tax taxi be sent their way because he doesn't want news he wants propaganda and so I think ails would've stood up to trump on those occasions many stafford's to the network actually miss him even though he abused his staff even though all of these sins on his record, they say at least he was a strong leader at least we know who was. In charge in many ways, hoax is a book about leadership about lack of leadership but also about the potential for leadership, it doesn't have to be this way you know Fox doesn't have to be this way. Maybe someday in the future, the other Murdoch children are going to try to take over the network, take over the company and thus the network. That's kind of the cliffhanger of hoax Brian Final question for you in researching the book what is the one most interesting or surprising thing you learned about? Tucker Carlson. Tucker Carlson. makes ten million dollars a year. That's even higher salary than been reported and he has this private island in Maine. I'm not gonNA say where because he's very sensitive about this but he has this island he takes a boat from the island to the mainland to anchorage show on the days when he is in Maine and I guess, instead of a wall, he has a Moat Brian stelter of CNN author of Hoax Donald Trump Fox News and the dangerous distortion of truth I appreciate you coming on thanks very much.

His Democratic opponent in November is going to be John Ossoff Jewish man who I'm assuming often parties with Noah and Lucinda as the only three non Christian people in that entire state and. you guys re correcting them wrong. You're working on NAT. Geo Special like David attenborough during the voiceover about you know you're very curious endangered species adapting to the environment of child. Okay. All right. We we.

The nose ask. And here's the excuse we got from the purdue campaign about this horribly antisemitic ad they ran. They said the nose alteration was an error by an outside vendor claiming it was caused by re sizing and filtering the original image took me ends the purdue campaign is working with a graphic designer who has a nose enlarging function in their Doesn't in large other parts of a photograph there's no chance. There's not a button on that guy software with an anti-semitic slur written on it as the title of the button. To be fair, we should have been a lot more specific when we asked him to quote, play up his Jewiness in the photo. You got to admit though this is a step down from the digitally added blood of Christ we put on his hands in the original one but. And and the prices wrong news I'll admit we probably have a little more fun than we should with the Republican atheists here at the Skating Atheist wishes any fun at all really. Your door.

"My sheets rock the coolest sheets ever made sounds good heath now can can you? Slide over the cold cuts stay with my almond milk. Okay. Obviously. Mine. Yeah we know it's yours. And now back to the headlines. In our lead story tonight damn near one in five Republican senators signed onto a letter urging trump to cut off federal corona virus funding to states don't love Jesus. Face. Everyone you specifically their urging him to quote place restrictions on any forthcoming covid nineteen relief funding to states and localities to prevent churches, houses of worship and religious schools and institutions from reopening and quote that I mentioned fucking base. Yeah. May Take Care what they're urging trump to do literally caused people to die withholding relief funding during the pandemic would be. PEOPLE AS REVENGE FOR MAKING CHURCHES NOT. Kill. People. Okay May I got it. Maybe the Republicans are going for some kind of high score situation, right? Okay. Yeah, they're playing grand theft autocrat. Right so If you ask the underside, of course, they're going to tell you that they're not calling for special treatment for churches. Because if their arguments were tethered to reality, they wouldn't be Republicans or Christians. The letter tries to pretend that churches have been unfairly targeted and to justify that they make repeated references to the fact that cities are fine. Letting black lives matter protesters gathering way larger numbers of they're allowing for churches. So these assholes never get to bitch about participation trophies et forever again, their entire fucking argument seems to be well black people got the thing with crowds. So Republicans should get one too. I mean to be fair it. There guy got killed by cops two thousand years ago and they still. Talking. Stop Resisting Sir Stop Resist a nailed to a cross. And I, I should note that this letter makes seven references to religious liberty or religious freedom. It is five paragraphs. Clearly, they're trying to sell this fiction that like restricting unnecessary in-person gatherings across the board is a burden specifically uniquely placed on religion, and if they wanted to help me summarize the hyperbole at the end of this fucking headline. Here's how they closed the thing quote. We appreciate your commitment. That's the writing this to trump's Oh, trump's commitment to protecting American citizens right to exercise their faith their right to pray for peace and to healing deeply divided nation. and quote, and while we're giving you credit for stuff, you actively work against your commitment to good-looking skin and cardio. Rights. And in lockdown news last week again. Just in time for it to be too late to be featured on our podcast motherfuckers show they. They have some kind of email chain. They noticed they away from Thursday showing. Up just. Show favorite Pastor Greg Lock to the Internet with his best car rent yet in. Defiance of having to wear a mask at Dunkin donuts. Okay if you're getting so goddamn worked up by your trip to Dunkin. donuts. You're so fucking excited that you're to wind to have a tiny layer of fabric over your face for a few minutes. Apparently you're greg. Shouldn't go there anymore wo whoever you are. You're capable of getting that pissed about anything Dunkin donuts related. He opens up this ramp by saying that his mask and this is a quote separates the body. Talion to know where he's putting that. Listen listener you must watch this video. It's so good. It's got him compared to the Holocaust it's got him. Comparing has to abortions at one point years. Masks don't work, and then he describes physically threatening and employees who politely asked him to put one on. But the best best best best best best part is when Pastor Gregory Hamster farts. Lock. Announces That's Israel as names renouncing yourself. The only human on earth with a more irritating. Utter than my own. According to mock twice a day twice a day. He goes to Dunkin donuts and orders to medium coffees with quote seven creams five sugar. To wishy ads by the way again real quote. Yeah I know I, got it. Okay. Well, first of all, that is nowhere near as difficult or irritating it's not even close. Nowhere near Craig locks problem. But okay. Here's some details about Dunkin donuts. The medium coffee is fourteen ounces and the extra large is twenty four hours. Oh My. fucking needs this. Own. He's an idiot okay or or and I guarantee. This is the real answer. He just doesn't have it in himself to say and I want that with fourteen creams ten. Or Twenty eight grams in twenty years. He was doing fourteen ten. that. All. Right. So this week, we got a little update on Greg's temper Tantrum and I got to believe this is because we have a listener at the Double D Duncan has announced that it will require guests to wear a mask in all its locations nationwide, which means pastor lock. It's going to have to take his unending thirst for to comedian coffee milkshakes elsewhere. And in I'm just a bill on Capitol Hill News. On the Republican Party of Twenty, twenty is getting tired of constantly being called out for opposing the black lives matter movement. And that's why Republican candidates are making it clear that the GOP platform isn't just a one dimensional thing. For example, besides the opposite of black lives mattering they also stand for not being Jewish. And we got two big examples of that message last week in campaign ads for prosecutor, James, Lindemann of Michigan and also US Senator David Purdue of Georgia, they're both running against a Jewish woman and their message to voters was. Basically. Guys Y'all know I'm running against a Jewish guy, right Jewish in God can you imagine Jewish? I'm honestly. The Guy in Georgia and zero percent. Surprised right like his I. Believe his slogan is and know they still have an apologize for killing Jesus right. It's pretty close. So. Let's start with James Lindgren the prosecuting attorney for Emmett Candy Michigan in the upcoming primary he's running against fellow. Republicans. Stewart Fenton who happens to be Jewish. So lindemans campaign put out an ad with a graphic of a not dead baby on it that says. Jim Lindemann is truly a Christian vote life vote family vote Christian values, which I feel like implies that Jews are fake Christians right. Right. Which is doubly ironic because Christians actually are faked who's There Superman but. So. The local media got in touch with Mr. Fenton after that Adwan out, there was super offensive him but and asked him why he was a liar who's trying to pretend he's a Christian at which point. I'm assuming fenton was like, Oh yeah. Sorry to be deceptive. I'll wear some identifying pieces of flair from now on. But his campaign manager loudly cleared his throat at that point to block that and Fenton gave his official response saying quote. What's the message that is sending? Keep the Jews out it's very unchristianlike. was further confirmation. That Fenton is definitely not a Christian. Right, yeah I feel like we should test him by bringing a Wiccan to his office in Iraq ranges. Okay. Mr Drew Christian go yeah. Right. Right yeah. I I don't know I don't think. I'd WANNA tempt them but yeah, I get your point. Yeah. Good idea not to do the tempting. So that brings.

"fox news" Discussed on Words Matter
"Election of Donald Trump really represented a power shift between Fox News and Donald Trump's audience because historically republicans kind of contorted themselves to fitting within the lines that Roger ailes painted and what happened happened with Donald Trump was that he was such an effective communicator plus he had his own platform with twitter and he was hosting his own rallies he essentially became his own media company and so what ails saw. Actually with some fear during the Republican primary and the general election was that the Fox viewers were actually becoming. Donald trump viewers not fox viewers in. This was best expressed when Megan Kelly famously had a feud with trump and asked him about his history with women and then started attacking her on twitter twitter and calling her crazy and said she was bleeding. From wherever and it was this grotesque misogynistic attack on Fox's biggest star and what I talked to Fox executives and producers at the time time they said all of the incoming communication they were getting from viewers emails tweets and everything was actually taking Donald. Trump's side Roger ailes was essentially powerless to defend can Kelly because the audience was not in her camp. And so that's one thing and then you have the of course. Firing hiring and then ultimate death of Roger ailes which created a massive power vacuum at Fox News. He had been the the programming's golly genius. who had come up with all of these as you mentioned? Joe A grievance storylines and so with ailes out of the picture producers had lost their North Star of. Where do they go? Towards and Donald Trump effectively effectively became the head of Fox News. He had personal relationships. With all of the big talents he would call up producers actual segment producers the show and so donald trump became the person who is setting the sort of overarching programming agenda for Fox News and I feel strongly talked about this with people that have ails. Still around. You Know Fox News would clearly be supportive of of the trump White House but it would not be so blatantly state TV because ailes els was such a sophisticated communicator that he knew that Fox's power stemmed from at least having some plausible distance from the party hardy and from the administration and being seen as a news network and the best Pranav propaganda is propaganda that the audience thinks actual real information and so I think ails would have dialed back. He's he definitely would have reigned in Hannity not let Hannity be essentially the shadow chief of staff and so. I think we're left with a a a case where ails created. It's a Frankenstein story. He really created this monster that he lost control of and now it is what it is today which is is part of the PR arm of the White House. So it's a little bit of a chicken and egg thing which is what came first trumper Fox but the result is that that we no longer have a common set of facts that we debate in this country. You have a stream of information that goes out on Fox you have a stream of information that goes out on. CNN CNN MSNBC New York Times Washington Post that are completely different narratives from your perspective you and you also mentioned twitter. I I think you have to add twitter into this. What's that done to our politics? It's been devastating. I mean I think no matter. What your partisan or ideological affinities are? It's horrible our entire political conversation has atomised. Were all sort of sending out blast of information into the author and sometimes they're bouncing off of each other but there's nothing to grab onto and so basically it's just raw power politics that person who either has the largest megaphone or can just through just sheer will convince their team that their information is better more accurate than the others. I think it's really. It's really bad. I don't know how that we get out of this this mess and I think one thing I've thought about to give myself some at least perspective. If not hope hope is that this is actually in certain ways a more of a return to the American political conversation you know the post war years where we had the kind kind of big three news. Networks that were supposedly objective. That was more of the anomaly than the norm. You know you go back to the nineteenth century. You had highly partisan newspapers apor you go back even further to the founding fathers and you had the Thomas Paine in the pamphleteer so I think partisan information weaponized news is always been in kind of part of the American character. I think the difference now is a scale. These were local publications not national ones and so we now have mass media media. That is doing that. And then the second thing is the speed misinformation is just being pumped into the bloodstream of of the new system. Faster than it can be corrected and I. I don't know how we get out of it and I think Joe you're right. I mean trump clearly benefits from this system and maybe he created it or maybe the system was was there in place to create Donald Trump. But What I'm fascinated in the weeks to come is to see what plays out with impeachment because it's binary he's either going to be? MP Stories not and he's going to be convicted or not and so we're going to be able to see the effects of it sort of this kind of political science experiment to see if our our information system can provide essentially viewers with the jurors. Which is the American people with the information to make the best decision mm yeah? Let's talk about impeachment briefly and weather ales is a theory of the case. As you put it well ring true with Shepard Smith Gone and is there anyone at Fox who can step in to fill that void. I think Chris Wallace clearly is trying to to play that role. He's been vocally pushing. Doc against the Hannity Laura Ingram Tucker Carlson talking point machine so I think that's definitely some a little ray of sunlight of reality over there but I think viewer wise. The primetime shows are the biggest part of the audience. And so the only person I think who really would have the power to break through the cult of Donald trump would be Sean Hannity. I mean imagine we all talked about during the Nixon Years John Dean moment limit. I mean the real John Dean moment in American culture today would be Sean Hannity going on air and saying Donald Trump committed crimes and needs to go go but I just don't see that ever happening. It's a probably a fever dream of the left. So Yeah Yeah I gave. I'm interested in your perspective perspective on the prime time programming. It's become openly racist white nationalist. The talking points that David Duke uses uses are the same talking points Laura Ingram and Tucker Carlson us from your perspective. Why do you think brands choose to associate okay with that? Wouldn't that be toxic and wooden that have an impact on forcing Fox. Closer back to the mainstream so some advertisers Heiser have pulled back Tucker. Carlson has seen an exodus of advertisers. After some of his most noxious common same with Laura Ingraham. So yes you're right. Companies don't want to be associated with white nationalism but I think the larger point is that the Fox News business model depends depends mainly on cable companies paying Fox News to carry Fox News on their systems. So it's a subscriber model and more than half of their revenue. The new is from Cable News. Subscriptions and so it actually has the counter effect. The more ideological in Extreme Fox News becomes uh-huh the more loyal their audiences therefore the more valuable that audiences to tuning into cable systems. It's working against what should be the corrective where that kind of extreme language would be punished. And so I think the result is that the pressure points of advertising leaving Fox. News is not as strong because they're relying lying on carriage fees in the industry the subscription revenue that cable companies like comcast and spectrum and verizon. They all pay to carry. Carrie Fox News so Gabe I WANNA wrap up and we've really appreciate you being so generous with your time. I think a lot of us at least in my social circle S. progressives have one or two people either in their family or in their social circle. That are trumpers. Do you have anybody in. How do you deal with them? Given that you are the resonant Fox allergist who has expose what Fox News is really about. Yeah something comes to mind about that. My my wife's grandmother and grandfather out on the West in Oregon are tie hard Fox News viewers when they're lovely sweet people and I've spent time with them and I remember when I was doing the book I was telling them about things. I was uncovering about Ales and their social conservatives and so I would think that all of that abuse would not appeal to their sensibilities and I was like you know this is not real news. They're tailoring the news to fit your. They're kind of manipulating eating. You and it was like a cult because I remember my wife's grandmother says well I'm forever with Fox. It had become such a part of their identity that there was nothing thing I could really say that would get them to change the channel and so my solution with those sorts of people are just too I you know. I don't even really engage in debate. The the the topic because it it's counterproductive. You're not going to break through so by. Just end up avoiding talking about it. I think that the reality of the trump ace right I mean the thirty thirty percents his approval ratings. move in this band between thirty and forty percent and I think those are the people that he famously said he could shoot someone on Fifth Avenue and they'd still stick with Tim. I mean they're gone. I mean there are like an island out to see let them just sail away. Because we can't I don't think any any kind of persuasion is going to get through to them. I think Joe was debating me into an okay boomer comment with that question and the response but will leave at the Gabe we are so grateful for you spending your time with us today day and thank you for all of your insights will look forward.

"I've been talking with a lot of people since last night's debate and I also expected like like you guys were just talking about the Delaney was probably like kaput and in terms of being able to make get to the debate stage that's probably true but he's also extremely wealthy and the murmurings I'm hearing are that he doesn't intend to actually drop out for quite a while even if he's not on the debate stage she's going to to hang out and yes he might not make it on the stage but he'll probably have no trouble getting back on Fox News. Jonah one is what what is the reasoning or the logic behind doing that. Why would he want to do that knowing that his political views are deeply unpopular with a party that's clearly he moved to the left? I mean I don't think this is the actual reason but one argument would be that he thinks that he's genuinely only right and he has to fight back against what he sees as dangerous turn for the party no politicians actually that honest though I would say that it's possible that he thinks that either this is sort of a moment and if he holds out perhaps a future party will find him more appealing or it could be that he thinks that perhaps some state level race or something like that like he might be positioning positioning himself not very well for the presidency but to raise his profile in advance of either you know commenting position on Fox News a governor's run or something like that John What is the sentiment been like outside of Delaney what a folks been saying about the other candidates that we haven't really been hearing and mainstream traditional additional media. I don't know I mean look. I'm in a different sort of bubble but this is one hundred percent of bubble here and <music>. I mentioned I think in our coverage last night that most of the people in the press room were pretty restrained. <hes> as the debate was actually going on there weren't a lot of people were making extremely clear who they actually supported there. Were a few lines honestly the lines that you guys pointed out that that got a lot of applause at support. I've talked to a few people not involved in all this. We were just like living living in Detroit. I talked with one woman and she said that she <hes> she liked Warren. She liked some of the stuff that Williamson said but she also said that she likes Biden is. She said that she finds him to be very charismatic and he seems like he's always had people's back. So that is one person I talked to so I think you can take that to the bank and John since you were there last night in your there this night and you're in that beautiful bubble. What would you say? The vibe is like in a different way tonight. I mean in relation to what's going to happen tonight. Honestly can't say I haven't jumped back into the belly of the beast yet. Maybe once I do that. I'll be able to get sort of a vibe for what people are expecting. I've I talking to a few people in my expectation is that it's probably not likely to be as fiery as last night. Last night. We really saw a clear I would say delineation of the ideological battle lines and we had people defending honestly both sides the more moderate side and the more left side. I think that we might see something like that tonight. Because their candidates Biden who are pitching themselves as I think more honestly as a centrist and then there are people who say that they're now progressives and to some extent..

"That's the response <hes> when someone really can't defend their plans so for example if John F. Kennedy Twenty said we should go to the moon and by the end of the decade in the sixties. Someone could've said to him well. You're not saying we should go to the moon next month so you're not being ambitious enough right so it's dishonest kind of lazy response. It's similar to when they say it's a Republican talking point. You know that's the problem with the with the extreme left of the Party when you point we now obvious flaws and the things that are talking about they say well. That's a Republican talking point and I'm like no. It's actually a fact so just going back to Ainsley and <hes> what she mentioned about people running as president they get elected and they don't actually follow through with what they promised I talking about trump campaigned on lowering the price of prescription drugs who campaigned on you know combating immigration in solving that problem who even said that he was going to bring manufacturing jobs back to the United States what happened remember what he said. It was going to bring coal jobs back the story about how <hes> we've lost more coal jobs under trump's administration because those jobs honestly in today's society are antiquated. <hes> industries are moving away from using coal as fuel so just it's amazing how they can make these arguments in attacking people on the left left but they'll never take a second to reflect on their their favorite candidate or their favorite president who has essentially fallen short on every single promise promised that he he had during the campaign and especially the one he ran or seemed to ran the hardest on which is about Mexico paying about border wall which we now see gets to come out of taxpayer dollars dollars. It's just it's unfortunate to see someone like Delaney on the stage with other individuals who are committed to the American people and to the agenda and it's it's clear that Delaney's really just trying to fill his own coffers and make sure that he needs his own interest especially with all of his investments and healthcare as a businessman and it just makes you wonder why necessarily are these people there but as we get to see you know and him appearing on Fox News he's there really to bring down into knock down the progressives in the left who actually want to do something for the people absolutely and more and more you see that he is clearly positioning himself as a cool collected and trump and that's what makes him so appealing to a Fox News audience and also this this kind of love..

"I I mean, it's an extraordinary situation to have the single largest cable news. News operation in the country, airing those kinds of sentiments so in your reporting for your New Yorker story on Fox News in the Trump administration. You spoke to several people who had been apart of Fox News in various capacities. Whether it's working behind the scenes as a producer or Booker or somebody who, you know, people who'd been commentators on there. What are some of the things you learn from from people who were really, you know, insiders and who are conservative. We'll I what was interesting was a number of them are unhappy with the direction that FOX has taken. I mean, they feel that FOX has become too much mouthpiece for President Trump that it's no longer conservative. And they worry that it's giving a platform for kind of authoritarianism. And and so, you know, you have people in the story that were on the record people like Bill Kristol who is conservative. But he is a critic of President Trump's and he used to be a contributor to Fox News. News. But he is no longer. He no longer has the contract with them, and or an-, and he says, it's changed a lot. And and he feels that it's it's it's really becoming propaganda. So I have to ask you a question about Laura Ingram. This is this is this is a departure from your piece as a piece about you a profile of you and L magazine, and then a profile it says that when you went off on a reporting trip your boyfriend at that time took up with Laura Ingram. The fact that you, you know, that you're reporting on her known yours shorting on Fox News. I just makes my head spin Monto. It was. It. It was I think something like thirty years ago, and I've been happily married for I think twenty six ever since to somebody else but to somebody else. So, you know. Yeah. That was it was ancient history. And I mean, I have to say it was a situation where I got my dog, and she got the guy, and I kind of think I got the better end of the deal you because she had taken she the guy had taken the dog. And you got the dog back. I did actually. Yeah. Wishy political at the time. Did you have any clue who she would become? I think she was pretty political at the time. I mean, she was a summer associate in in my boyfriend's law firm that was what was going on. But I think she'd already I think she'd clerked maybe for Clarence Thomas, but give given that back history. I was pretty careful to stay away from writing about her in in this piece there, I think it's a piece that's about eleven thousand words, and I think she. He gets to mentions along the way. Let me reintroduce you here. If you're just joining us. My guest is Jane Mayer. She's a staff writer for the New Yorker, her new piece is called the making of the Fox News White House.

"Saw a tweet by Donald Trump. So it could be total bullshit is says Fox News top CNN and immense NBC combined in October cable news ratings then he says that's because they treat me fairly. That's definitely bullsh-. Let's soon that what he says about their ratings is true, though, FOX is doing better than MSNBC and CNN combined. That's the case there's a big lesson here for your podcast here is why that would happen one old people and less educated. People are more likely to watch TV old people unless educated people are more likely to be conservative. If a certain group of people's more likely to watch TV and certain group of people is more likely to be conservative a conservative network on TV would you better than a liberal network? Now, this isn't to say that younger more educated people. In other words, liberal people aren't watching new. They are. But they're more likely to get their news from somewhere other than cable television. How many young people do you know that our court cutters? People who don't have cable television at all. Well, those people aren't able to watch Fox News CNN MSNBC, if the old people that are left the old people, they're the ones who are more conservative. Here's another reason why this might be true. There's only one conservative cable, news outlet, FOX, the liberal and centrist audience that's being split between different networks. CNN MSNBC. Maybe aljazeera. There are ton of other less conservative networks that are going to split that audience 'nother thing this is maybe the biggest when it comes to your podcast. This is the big lesson here that I want you to take away FOX is not news. They call it, Fox News. But it is actually an entertainment network. It is personality driven entertainment personality matters. When people listen to your podcast, they are not listening solely for the content. They're listening for you. You can get the basic content anywhere. But where can you get the personality? You were the only one that has the personality that you bring to the table as far as content. You could do the exact same episode is me or anybody else, but you could dominate it based on your personality. If you've got a personality that your audience is interested in that's the big lesson. You can get the basic content anywhere where else can you get the personality nowhere? You're the only one who can bring that such yourself up to be the only choice people have when it comes to your viewpoint and also your brand of content. They zig zag they're conservative. You're more conservative. They're liberal. You're more liberal their religious, your nonreligious their religious. You're more religious bring a point of view bring a personality. You're not going to please everyone. So concentrate on really pleasing, the people that are into you. Then he's bringing up more personality that is the secret sauce. It's not content subcontinent. King. Well, that's a content is Queen personality is king who's going to deliver the content. Podcasters? Don't wanna nameless faceless voice. They want you your personality as wine a lot of the episodes from Bill to be podcast. You're gonna hear me tell him personal stories. I want you to get connected to me.
