"Good morning from the New York bureau children. How are you? Good. Good, you know, I always think of you, noted, musicologist, VH1, VJ. Because everybody had their favorite Tina Turner moment or story. I think you were talking about a duet with Clapton. Talk to us just about Tina Turner. Oh, well, I mean, I have many, many. I posted that one video just because she's so amazing and it's not even the great song. You know, she did she do ended on Eric Clapton's tearing us apart at the prince's trust, and it's not a great song. Yet another song Eric Clapton wrote about George Harrison's wife, but her performance is what elevates the entire thing. I posted another clip. We did a an award show at the H one once and Elton John was on stage doing the bitches back and Tina walked on stage to join him. Took him a second row. And I wish I could convey what it was like inside the room when she walked on stage because she was a shaman. Watch anything she ever did with Mick Jagger. Watch her and he won with the stones. And I mean, she's a shaman, but it's not even her musical ability. That's why she's a hero. You know, I Carter abused her in ways that movie didn't dare to show. He sent her on stage with a broken nose and a collapsed lung and through scalding hot coffee in her face, and raped her. It took her to a brothel on their wedding night. And she left and 16 cents to her name. She was 40. She was washed up. She couldn't get booked in any room. She was playing cabaret rays at one point, she agreed to go play at apartheid South Africa. Because she couldn't make any money here. And she stayed with it. And so as much as she's a hero for her talent, it's her resiliency. It's giving strength to so many survivors. Yeah. I was a kid. I didn't know what domestic violence was. I learned what women have to survive as a young white boy from Tina Turner's experience. And I'm blessed I got to see your life. Me too. And she's the only reason to watch Mad Max three. Yeah. I was saying that she was 60 when I saw her alive and just amazing. Just amazing. Yeah, Noel Castro told me a great story. She played for George McGovern 50 years ago when he ran for president. No password was telling the story. The Beacon, you know, where we did sexy liberal, but she was rehearsing for a show with Elton John, who was gonna play piano on, you know, he was singing. And she told him he was doing it wrong. Storming off, but you know old guys were just saying, that was her commitment to making sure every, you know, she had the courage to stand up and say, this is the way I need it to be because every performance every song she needed it to be the best it could be. Yeah, and I mean, this is a woman who outlived both of her sons, you know? Or other son just died last year. And she said, very openly, I have not had a happy life. But she did find happiness. She did find true love. Her husband, you know, donated organs to her. But it's about taking that pain and turning it into gold for other people. And that's the best thing comics or artists or anyone who's creative can do is to take your own pain and instead of using your pain to justify being cruel to others like all the fascists were about to discuss, use it to uplift others and make others smile and that's like the most noble thing you can do with pain. Yeah, and can I say my girlfriend worked with her, but just said she was the nicest person in the world. And I thought that's always amazing to hear about your idols is that she, you know, everybody says she truly, can you imagine she has every reason not to be a nice person. I mean, what she's been through. She said she was the nicest artist I ever worked with. Yeah. Yeah. I mean, it kind of makes you wish someone would have been nice to Laura Ingraham once in her life. Finally, oh my God, I was impressed. Impression. Oh, God. Back to back. I started crying yesterday I watched a clip of us. She's fluent from sorrow into surprise Oprah for her birthday, just saying simply the best. I started. I was like, anyway. But so yeah, it's been a week. It's been a week. I was just talking to Dave, our official pastor about Jordan Neely. I know you talked about this last week. But you know, I was so struck by this party that always says, what would Jesus do? And, you know, is full of so many fake Christians as you talk about. And I thought, this guy, this poor guy was literally talking about being hungry and thirsty. And I think Jesus talked about what he would do in that circumstance. He said, I'm hungry. I'm Thursday. I want to die. So this idiot decides, oh, okay, I'll kill him, then. You know, because, I mean, I just, you know, and I'm not saying I'm any kind of hero. I'm sure I would have been freaked out if he was acting erratically, but you know what? What kills me is if I was on that train, I feel like, or it wasn't a one person that had food or water that could share it with him. It might have calmed him down if someone's screaming about being hungry and thirsty. I mean, isn't that literally what Jesus would do? Indeed. I mean, this is what the subways are like all the time. There's guys like that on the train all the time. Mentally ill homeless men usually black but not always at the end of their rope very often there's addiction, very often there's mental illness, very often there is addiction because of mental illness and they've tried to self medicate. These are what Jesus calls the least of my people. Talking Matthew 25, my favorite Bible story, the parable of the goats and

What's the difference between that and our buddy here ace. About 70 days. Want to do it for 70? He's lives through 30. I don't want to push this. No, yes, but what ace is doing. It's not, I'm doing it for fun. No, he's not, it's not a specific pizza. He's getting away with a lot of stuff, and I've given up the flight. What do you think it should be? A cheese pizza every day. A pizza. Yeah, not like a cauliflower with a steak tartare on top. Pizza. Pepperoni cheese, crust, sauce, pizza. You know they make pizza ice cream. I'm not speaking to you. Now he's on ice cream.

Yeah, sure. And it's very exciting. But I don't know if you remember this one. This was the French scientist with the talking whales. Oh, sure, yeah, good count. And remember the French scientist taught the whales to talk so to speak. This was one of the ones that the whale did. Always loves it. The talking. Whales, but yeah, a lot of famous comptons.

"But he took that and brought it to the he took a genre of music and brought it to the tens of millions. It was like a detonation. He stole fire from the God. And The Beatles took that and gave it a British sensibility. They took his music and refined it. That was one thing I thought was really interesting with them playing this music with, is it Billy Preston? Where I think at one point, Paul was just like, oh, yeah, that Conan riff doesn't come naturally to us. Yeah, we've got a British sensibility. And Billy person's amazing. Oh, he was great. Yeah. He reminds me of Eric Clapton's biography where he signed up playing with the Tulsa musicians, like when he first meets his Tulsa band, and it's like they're like teenagers or whatever and he can't keep up with them. They're so skilled. That's like all these musicians are so incredibly good. And it's like Billy Preston, I mean, it's like on the keyboard. I mean, it's like none of them play the keyboards like him. They keep saying they need a keyboard player. And it's almost like God's listening and gives them like one of the best in the world. This walks in. Like, hey guys, he's just, oh, I'm coming to see what you're doing today. Yeah. And it's like, you can see like there's a whole different steam in their stride. I think it's on two fronts. First of all, it's like George Harrison later said you don't want to fight in front of a guest. You don't fight in front of company..

"And then some guy chimed in. And I was like, well, John and Paul haven't written a song in years. Yeah, but that's the arrangement. Yeah. And it was like, I was like, that's so cool. That was a little clip. I was like, oh, George is upset, but it's like, yeah, but these guys haven't written songs together in years. So that was some of so I'm a big Led Zeppelin fan, too. And as you've seen over their albums, they change and they get into all other weird instruments and shit kind of like The Beatles. But you get to see them evolve over time. And the great thing about Led Zeppelin is, to me, is that they can have your super hard songs like rock and roll, but then you also have battled over more, and they're on the same album. And they're totally different, which is why I love all the George Harrison songs on there too. I didn't realize that his were some of the slower, more somber ones, but to switch back and forth, I don't know if you have Paul McCartney right every single song. Every single song every single album every single track is just gonna sound like more Paul McCartney. Well, it leads up on having an arrangement that all of the writing credit went to the band Led Zeppelin. That's how you two is awesome. Well, that's not easy as a model. But yeah. But that's how they've been around for a little bit, right? Yeah. You too. At least towards the albums. But I'm just saying all the extra shifts in the ingredient. It's all good. It's all gravy. But it seemed like Paul McCartney was very much a stickler of he was a little too controlling. He knew how he had it orchestrated already in his head. And he was just trying to translate it. But he was not the best at translating that. And you saw it come out where he was just like, I'm not trying to lecture you. I'm not trying to be that way. I don't want to be this way. But George is like, but you are. I'm not mad. Let's get through this. Let's work. Let me actually talk, and we can actually be part of a creative process. And Paul was like, well, no, no, no, I want to do it this way. This is the way I want to do it. And here's what got me about the George and John fronts was that George had felt this way for a year. And had not said anything to Paul. And obviously, Paul is bossy and he comes across I think it's condescending. Yeah. To the people in the group. But George let that slide for a year. Until it got to this point and boiled over. And to me, it almost kind of shows an immaturity in George, where he gets up and says, I'm out. Towards like, things aren't going my way. I'm going to storm out. I'm taking my ball on him. And again, 100% 27.9. He's a child. He's the youngest of all of them. Yeah, he is. But it does seem like they're talking in circles because they always circle back to like, all right, what kind of show we're gonna do? And then Paul's going off, he's like, yeah, and you remember back when we played in Hamburg, it was just incredible. It was fantastic and we were all like, wow, and then they were all like, yeah, and then everybody was just, you know, all sort of Spacey and in a different world. And it was, and it was great, you know? But it wasn't. And then it was still good to know it's like, what?.

And jeff lynne on how to finish his final album like very detailed instructions. Wow he'd been working on it since one thousand nine hundred eighty eight but because of traveling will berries and other commitments. He kept putting it off. Oh my gosh. Finally almost exactly a year. After he died georgia's final studio album was released and brainwashed was met with critical acclaim ensuring georgia's legacy would continue even if his if his spirit was no longer on this plane. That's it in never ceases to amaze me how influential george was seriously. He wasn't the greatest guitar player honestly and great but he he wasn't shredding people's faces off every night. No that's that's that's not your style you know not at all but he wrote some of the most iconic instantly recognizable guitar parts in music history He was just as difficult in a pain in the ass as the rest of the beatles. Nowhere let's be honest. Yup but the extra effort he put into getting his voice. Heard made sure we're still talking about him today. Yeah and it definitely Solidified my view. The georgia's my favorite. Beatle oh beetle. I think george just made his way to my number two. Yeah absolutely yeah paulin.

The company was in debt. Eventually in the ninety s. George sued dennis for fraud and negligence and he was awarded. Eleven point six million dollars. Yes right like. I get that there is a party that it's like wow you let him run this for that long and like never once checked anybody the phone snake. I don't think dennis is one hundred percent at fault for everything happened like he was a shady character. Dennis one hundred percent probably sucked. However george you are on the board. You should ask questions like you can't say well luke luke. Dennis gold at than dennis. I'm going to take a nap for ten years. I'll come back and get real. Marred of things are pretty much what he did. That's not fair. yeah can't do that. I mean you hand but shouldn't but she shouldn't common courtesy yeah.

Am the next day to deliver the news. But george kinda just rolled over and went back to sleep because he was in a daisley. Yeah he basically said he didn't even know what happened. Yeah he's oh asleep. He was like half asleep at five o'clock in the morning. Olivia was like. Hey john lennon just died he was murdered and he was just like i'm sleeping right but i'm not gonna fault him for that because like how many times have you gotten a phone call in the middle of the night and maybe even was an emergency and you were so tired nearly two in the morning.

After mosit- said that no matter what george produced he was gonna use it in the movie and then he said anyway. Here's wonderwall to do.

I did need an after all. You're my wonderwall. So you're my movie.

He's like obsessively watches as couple. Oh god so. Maybe that's what they're talking better. That's not about dust definitely worse. Maybe just really wanted to reference wonderwall because they loved the beatles because it rhymes with after all why all right now we know kids.

Look if if nolan what's his face liam weren't fighting than they were making up some really convoluted songs. Yeah but they were jams so you know.

"But yeah he had. He had like one friendship or relationship at a time. That really influenced his life. Oh yeah so like. He definitely picked very specific people to get really close to at various specific times in his life. That really influenced everything. Oh yeah one. See that i think i would say the only constants were probably the beatles and even then like. Oh there were there. Were ins and outs. I think he really looked up to john. In the beginning in the beginning of the beatles. He really looked up to john as a musician as a person because he was kind of everything that george wanted to be by didn't really he wanted to be but didn't wanna be. Yeah just like somebody. That was very charismatic and outgoing and george whistle lake now. I'm i'm just not like that. I'm not. I'm not a lease man. I'm not a talker. I'm not a bullshitter. But you know he. He's still in meier. John for how he could literally just shit out an amazing melody and get into an amazing song. No so that was like i think the first major musical relationship that he really influenced him a lot. Yeah i could see that. Yeah definitely yeah. I think as far as the beatles. I mean everybody knows it george and ringo were the only two who could keep up. Good stay relationships everyone. Yeah as you'll be able to tell on weeks to come and not so much pollen john.

"Get to it yeah. His vocal talents lent themselves much better to harmonies and backing vocals than lead. I believe it broke in sleigh harmony. All right but when it came to lead vocals not that great. He doesn't have a wide range. He's very good in in the range that he has an doing harmonies and stuff like that but lead vocals. Aren't that great. I had you listened to the song. Do you want to know a secret of goal us secret or really like you off of their first album. Please please me. I think it is the most adorable fucking song i have ever heard in my life. Especially when you compare it to john's murders which he had a lot of wichita sorry but technically it's not like a hard song. None of their songs are very hard to say what it is a bit. Ringo isn't it. yeah it's it's very it's very rudimentary. I it work hold on but it did work for the style. And the time right one hundred percent and no digs on george here and apparently john said that he gave george that song to sing. Because it was the easiest song for him to say not merciful merciful. All such a nice guy hashtag. Nice guy no. I don't think john whatever identify as a nice guy. No not at all no but these days singing the hard hitters like roll over beethoven in clubs in liverpool georgia's voice had just the right amount of raspy imperfection they needed. Oh yeah. I could see that so by now. The beatles were more popular than ever before they were playing shows. Nearly every night mostly at the cavern on mathew street and had a large dedicated fan base women threw themselves at them. Even at this early stage in each band member had their own fan club. Germany had given them a swagger. They didn't possess a year before they were beaten very storm and the hurricanes at this point they were the band made two more trips to hamburg. And each time they came back home to bigger and bigger popularity by nineteen sixty two they found a manager brian epstein a rich twenty-seven-year-old. That had nothing better to do that. Manage the beatles you know. Someday we do have to do a brian. I've seen episode. Because i don't know a ton about him but the little little crumbs that i've discovered fascinating. Yeah and he died very early very early so and he launched a. He launched the beatles basically we. He made them who they were. Yeah so yeah. He was a very interesting character. Yeah he was good at it he spruced up their image putting them in matching suits and giving them all. They're infamous mop top haircuts and though they were tight professional unit and during the third hamburg trip with their snazzy suits in manager it was hard to go back stewart had died of a brain hemorrhage before they returned to germany they were also turned down by decca records in feeling thoroughly defeated. They reluctantly returned to liverpool after hamburg. Yeah that was a rough trip. Yeah definitely it seemed to not get much better. They gave the best the sac in nineteen sixty two and many and many fans. We're pissed about it. Y'all so pissed that one fan punched george in the face for making a crack about firing. Pete yeah he was met. This is why..

"He honestly all the beatles could get it. They could in their own specific way. Look any of like hold up time machine. I fuck any of the beatles. I would totally be one of those fucking stupid girls falling at their feet. Absolutely i still would be a ringo stan. He needs somebody. Wow he aplenty you want somebody to love all okay anyway. Let's get into this. So george harrison has always been known as the quiet beatle but then make. The nickname is a misnomer true. He didn't talk much but only spoke when he had something of importance to say. If george opened his mouth you stopped. And you listened which is probably why georgia's beatles songs made heads turn in ears perk up something while my guitar gently. Weeps savoy truffle. All of these songs had that extra something a deep earth and a brooding intensity that an extra layer of richness to the beatles repertoire. Something that came up over and over again in my research is that george harrison could suffer no fools. Oh he didn't mince words and was straightforward to a fault. So if he didn't like you you fucking shit. He had precious few friends throughout his life carefully choosing the people he opened up to. It was even more persnickety about those. He admired that makes sense. You're gonna like pick and choose your friends really carefully. You're not gonna like admire too many people right and the people you did admire. They were something special word but that was all fine with george. He had his delicately curated. close friendships. He had his guitar and he had his spirituality spirituality was also something. He held very close to his heart in the second half of his life however he wasn't born into a religious family at all George was born on february twenty fifth nineteen forty three. As far as i can tell he did have a middle name. Okay and also later in life he would actually say that he was really born on february twenty fourth. Which is your birthday. See only superpower. The what do you mean he was really born. He said he was bored. Really late on february twenty fourth. He's like just saying like technically been born on twenty four twenty fifth on mobile certificate feeling. The hospital was like oh. He's born on the twenty fifth but his parents were like nyas. Really bourne onto fourth parents can get very particular about what the fuck it says on your birth certificate because it's it's their narrative of your story right which is fair right. I mean yo- carry your ass for nine months right you're not just like hopping out of the womb leg. What time is a bit. Maybe swinging then and bill cord leg. Got that big bill. Anyway he was born in his family home at twelve. Arnold grove in waiver. Tree a small suburb of liverpool. He was born at home. He was definitely born on the twenty fourth. Yeah yeah yeah. Because like they're like at least an hour off and probably nobody was really paying attention to the clock to the siro paying attention to the screaming woman when all the blood was coming out of bed. You know in in serious fucking pain. Yeah that's probably a bigger priority than what time it was. Yeah it was the midst of world war two can barely remember any bombings or air raids. He did remember. The scars left on the city after the war was over. The crumbled buildings and blown out store fronts the dirt grandma and destruction left by the germans. Young liverpool got hit super hard. Yeah harder than. I thought that they did. Yeah honestly again once again.

That i think had the best song the best solo song definitely hands fucking down. Yeah tell me that every time you hear that you're not like you know what like everything's awful but i love it. Everything's okay in the three and a half minutes that i'm listening to this song. It's such a happy song and we can thank the one and only george harrison for that song. Thank you mr harrison. At least they think we can. I don't really actually know who wrote that song. I'm sure it was him. We'll see won't we know with. Oh yeah oh yes then or at then. We already starting with the accents.

Yeah and we're your hosts. I'm maggie. i'm ashley. Yes and continuing on the road of the beatles but not as beatles. Yeah and already we've already. I think broken our game plan for this.

Anyway this is the have to be interesting thing too. That i've been thinking about a lot. Since we've been researching the bet lays less that they are all very complicated human beings and really starting to like start to leak come to terms with my separating art from the artist and how and why and when and who you know it's funny. I'm glad we started with ringo and then george because it's getting gradually more difficult to separate the arts. There is some gray area by the end of this. It's going to be extremely hard to.

Let's say edge of tomorrow minute. Mcc pleasant From the World. I'm a comedy writer and Just elated welcome. Suzy glad to have you on my. I think I became most aware of you at least kind of recently from a star wars minute and and then then even recently. You're on bull. Durham in it. I got I am tearing up the minute scene. Yeah it's pretty great. You're knocking out a wide range of genres to hear from. Yeah yeah to the sports to the Rock Rock Music Rock Music David. This is your first time with us too. I shouldn't they certainly shouldn't forget you but you're kind of our our unofficial co host happening. He's cuppers minutes that we're going to have you. Yeah good good to be here Big Fan of this movie some. I'm happy to do as much. Co host duties. You need me for saying yeah thank you. Yeah we always have. We always have either of you back For other minutes but this man is meant forty six week and it starts with Russell getting electrocuted and ends with Marc Maron yelling at the band in the electrocution scene man. That's pretty grisly. I think Russell does a pretty good job of well not Russell. But you know that actor's name thank you. Yeah it seems to try and say it disappears from Ed. Bill does a good job of making me feel like he is a real lump of meat that just got cooked on a state of man. It's it's disturbing Yanni really keeps it up to. I mean it's there's there's parts during the sped next to especially Where he just he just really continues to be really out of it really well that they didn't know one called it an ambulance. That's buried the seventy lake. We're like mine. You're just got electrocuted a little bit. Because because I've got a little bit of a morbid streak I had to look up other famous onstage electrocutions. Ooh Yeah so Turns George Harrison was electrocuted in the let it be documentary so you can actually watch him put his lips to the megaphone and get like a little shaky doesn't collapse or anything like that but he does sort of back off shows a little bit of visible pain and you can find that clip on YouTube Keith Richards I was thinking I was going to have to wait until Peter Jackson's done here with Dr. Welby reassembling of Lee keeping it in keeping that part. Maybe that'll be the focus of it. Now lose be like the movie where George gets electrocuted Keith. Richards was also electrocuted. But it was much more like what happens on stage here In nineteen sixty five in Sacramento. His Guitar bumped into an ungrounded MIC stand. Apparently sparks flew in. There was a loud bang and the manager actually thought that Keith had been assassinated. They did rush him to the hospital unconscious and heap. He did not wake up until I think it was later that day in the hospital and he woke up and said man that was good. Probably Rush. I think I'll do that. I thought of. I haven't seen a movie since it came out in theaters And so I forgot. I forgot everything because I know a larger memory and yeah so when I watched the minute before I went back in like watch the rest of the movie And I was like Oh if he on drugs flake I was like are they pretending to be elected because he's on drugs like I couldn't remember if there was like a drug thing so anyway but but it makes sense that he gets electrocuted. I guess it's just like because you don't think about rockstars. Getting electrocuted probably happens a lot less than it did in the seventy S or sixty S. Or whatever when you know now that technology is pretty good like but I wonder if anybody has recently only guess you looked it up like actually. Isn't that famous? Still have you for sure there? I mean there's a long string of them from the seventy so it was definitely like a you know we quit and quite figured out how to ground these things yet. like As freely was electrocuted from kiss and he actually wrote a song about it called shock me later on and then but there are actually people who died from electrocution In the seventies. Yeah Yeah let's Harvey from stone. The crows which was sort of a pub rock band in the early Seventies. He died in in Wales from poorly grounded. Mike Electrocution and Keith Ralph. From the yardbirds died in his basement recording studio from an improperly grounded guitar apparently but yet there's actually a kind of a grisly video. You can find of the band. Hot Hot heat Playing an outdoor festival in Ohio. Somewhere in I don't remember exactly what year it was like. Fairly like the twenty tens. I think where the one of the guitar players get electrocuted and collapses and it's very similar to this like no one really realizes what's happened until he's been laying on the ground for a couple of seconds and then you know the music kind of slowly fades out and everyone in the crowd was like what's going on and it so it's it's still sort of a modern problem. I think trying to put on an outdoor show with you know. Weather conditions in long runs of cable across a field and things like that makes it more dangerous. But Yeah Yeah. I didn't realize how dangerous rock and roll lists the threat and there's other I think really good acting and decides besides just Russell Billy's You know I mean there's there's all this confusion is going on you know and then that's that's actually what jeff bb says. Hey what's going on we here? We also hear like this. Maybe I got it from somewhere or some Transcript site whatever but stinking stinking roads you know so. A roads roads fender bass wise at coming roads. Some some kind of Either Anchor Guitar. Some sort is the root. It's like a brand name erodes Oregon too but I didn't see any of that hanging out instead. Yeah and noticed that both Jeff and Russell. Have like to have two microphones on their MIC stand Sort of tied together which was kind of a weird seventies thing that they did do. That was Sometimes if they rip especially if they were recording the show. You'd have one Mike that fed the PA in one that went to the recording stuff But apparently the grateful dead also did this sort of a weird early form of noise canceling because they would they would put their speakers. Grateful dead put their speakers behind them and did a lot of like weird separation so like the base when we came out of this portion and the guitar came out of his portion to train gift. Things a little more dynamic separation but apparently if you put too close together and you do one in positive polarity in one in negative polarity sort of does some fancy noise cancelling thing on really know but apparently is common in the seventy s until we figured out you know plug ins and laptops and things so very cool. I'm writing so much I do have been baby myself. I was GonNa say you wonder if he's ever seen that before but yeah well the the big thing I've seen is that You know it looks. It seems like there's there's a there's a fair amount of duct tape that I think has happened there at at at Russell's microphone and I've seen lead singer do that before I've done sound work with a few bands quite a few years ago. There was one that Kevin just started going crazy with taping like okay. If you want to do that you're that that's interesting. I wouldn't at seems unsafe. Well I don't know. Duct tape is Great. I guess no don't don't don't know absolutely. I never thought I came from the south. Everything's held together with duct tape. I'm the other thing that that that's at. The very beginning of it is the that the plumbing song is ending. I mean it's not really ending. That's not supposed to end but it's ends because of everyone leaving their instruments in running towards wrestling then than certainly away getting off the stage but You know in the draw. I think in a normal fashion. I think the drums are kind of the one that kind of goes along. The drummer can just be on his own groove and I mean he's sexy Griffin centrally and. Yeah he and he can't maybe can't see what's happening sunders obstruction. Yeah Ding dongs. Away can't Ding dongs meaning drums. Let's that's what I'm gonNA call them now. You know what I'm talking about the hidden things drummers love it when you call me being Donner's I think too so. Oh Yeah Yeah. They totally loved that. Because it's very cool in rock and roll.

When it comes to fixing Facebook, were on Mark Zuckerbergs timetable
"You're listening to the spoken edition of the San Francisco Chronicle. When it comes to fixing Facebook. We are on Mark zuckerberg's timetable by Owen Thomas from business. Welcome back to tech chronicle. If you don't really subscribe to the newsletter move fast and sign up move, slowly and fix things. Whatever happened to move fast and break things in Facebook's third quarter earnings call with analysts, Tuesday, Mark Zuckerberg made one thing. Clear fixing Facebook is going to take time q. George Harrison singing, I've got my mind set on you and the chorus it's gonna take time to do it. Right. As the earnings revealed suckered has money a whole lot of spending money to fight fake news, spam and election interference. He has said Facebook will hire twenty thousand workers to review posts the goal though. He told analysts is to have Facebook artificial intelligence spot. Pablo medic posts before anyone has to flag or review them. He indicated that it. Might have this figured out by the end of next year for the citizens of Brazil that's a bit late vaunted war room set up to monitor elections. With a Brazilian flag posted on the wall, signaling the country's importance shutdown some fake accounts used to send spam. But the end result the election of far-right candidate jar Bolsonaro in campaign fueled by conspiracy theories sent on the Facebook owned what's app messaging service suggests that it has made less progress than it claims sucker. Berg has a polished talking point for this. It's an arms race and the company has to keep up with evolving behavior, if it's an arms race, what about this idea, why doesn't Facebook unilaterally disarm Facebook could shut down at service outside the US, Canada and Europe and save it self a lot of headaches. The worst social media fueled disaster seemed to happen in places like man, mar Sri Lanka, India, and Brazil that would slash base books. Vaunted user numbers. From two point two seven billion to six hundred seventeen million, but it would cost only twenty seven percent of its revenue if anything Facebook's profit margins who would probably increase contending with lies deception and state-sponsored manipulation and a smaller part of the globe. But presumably cost less and work better than trying to do it for the entire world sucker. Berg has suggested that if western governments were to reign in Facebook Chinese social media giants would move in to fill the void. And so what Facebook may twenty seven dollars sixty one cents per user in the US and Canada in the third quarter in its emerging markets, where advertisers are far scarcer it only made a dollar eighty two per user or about sixty cents a month as a business. Facebook would be better off figuring out how to squeeze more dollars out of the data. It's American users surrender with shrug it with baseless flack too, but suck Aberg has his mind set on connecting the world, even if that means leaking up all of its unruly. Contentious bad actors, good luck with that quote of the week. We have willingly now for more than a decade given up our most personal data that is the real guts the bloodstream for AI. You know, our personal data is the most valuable commodity in the world right now. I mean, it's far more valuable than any energy source or any other commodity, you can think about and we have given it over we've given it over to companies by and large.
