Michael Isikoff Has An Issue With Barry Meier and The Collusion Hoax

"I saw this this weekend had tipped Glenn Greenwald to put it out in the social media can actually does real journalism. Greenwall picked out this gym these air. This is a former New York Times reporter Barry Meyer. And a liberal reporter, Michalis two coffees on me not have trouble Connemara reporter, but whatever you get the hint This is a fascinating exchange. Let me give you some background. You want to see how we get to group think and how people believe things that aren't true. Listen to this sucker here, a little background on it. So Barry Meyer was a former New York Times journalist. And he wrote this book recently. And the book is about how the whole Russian collusion thing happened. And how fusion GPS these air basically paid spies who were paid to feed information to media outlets that we now know. Was it true, Donald Trump colluded with the Russians? You've heard it all before. We don't need to re litigate the collusion hoax here. It's all fake. Okay, it's made up, you get it. But Meyer didn't expose in his bookkeeper minds Got you sorry for The New York Times isn't right for bright Bart. Conservative Review Bongino calm. He was right for the New York Times, and he's highlighting and sounding the alarm over this. Paid intelligence operation Fusion, GPS and others who are paid to produce political information and then feed it to media. People who run with it. Well, what's the problem with them? Information often turns out to be false. Sounds like a big problem. So it's a cop who's a big lefties interviewing Barry Meyer and instead of celebrating the fact that conservative media My show, Fox news. Other shows out there. Molly Hemingway Home and Jenkins John Solomon, who got the collusion hoax story right that it was a hoax instead of celebrating it liberal Michaelis a cough is more concerned about the fact that right wing media chose to have Barry Meyer despite him having written for The New York Times on their shows.

"A desire to prevent me from criticizing joe biden so close to the election now. Obviously it's not state censorship by no it doesn't implicate the first amendment. There are other forms of censorship bell like when facebook google or facebook twitter blocked for example linking to the new york post that would be censorship prayed and when liberal said oh when liberals suddenly started sounding you guys at reason like these are private corporations whatever they want fucking liberals is when you talk that way but like twitter and baseball tomorrow united and issued a policy saying we will no longer permit any criticisms donald trump or the republican party only criticism joe biden and the republican shall be permitted to be spread on our platforms. I don't think roles would have any trouble calling. Censorship even Just another in and do that. They're the reason i call it. That though is because. I know the difference between editorial concerns political lines and it was so nakedly political what was being done and this is an ex post rationalization for having used the word censorship in the in the emails that she disclosed. You are very careful and describing censorship in precisely the way that you just described not. I want to commend that exchange. People and i think they really ought to go find this and look at look at this themselves if only because of the extraordinary contrast and i mean that the first dispatch in which peter modern cedar moss us. Oh peter marks is is responding to you and he does detail a bunch of things which he would like you to change in many respects. These are things that i thought before i saw your reply. Actually these are in the piece. These are in the draft. Just read so. I'm not really sure why you would want him to change this. He's qualified this all right. He's not overstating but in either case by the time it gets to the end of his very lengthy reply. You you fire off about nineteen hundred words. you're engaging in this process you're having a conversation and the reply that you read that you receive the rejoinder from betsy is about seventy odd words and as i described before our intention was to help you shape this for publication. You don't get to publish this elsewhere. And i don't like the way that you're talking about your colleagues in this publications and that's it. That's all you got noticed. Finally things about this so what. I did not publish this. Could i thought it was already too much content like three articles on the same day about four thousand words. Each is too much even for me. There is a series of exchanges. That had over the week Were she was anticipating this conflict. Saying look if you're going to write about this. I perceive we're gonna we're headed toward an editorial comm-. Oh wow and i kept saying betsy. I'm not somebody who i think. You might have a misconception about recite the like maximalist rudy giuliani theory. That this evidence is smoking gun a smoking gun of joe by scripture. I don't think it is. I think it raises questions. And i suggested i put in all the caveats now because anyone wanted to meet me too because i i. It was necessary to be accurate. Saying there's no evidence. Yawn china was consummated. There's no deal. That biden participated on paper in any of these deals. All we have about that in ukraine. There's no evidence that is motive was to help raise up by changing a prosecutor. Even though it definitely did end up helping that company it's not series of. That's the re. Did it so often argue me about the view that i expressed as already put in there which is also why i felt like there was no good faith editorial process going because neither of them is stupid. They read the article and they had to have known that they were contriving. Objections to dress up but they're in their censorship as noble editorial concerns and the the conversation that i had with betsy over the course of that pro before. Have you been renault word when she was already threatening with an interest who's calling an editorial conflict demonstrates that mindset but the other point i think is important so important is like and yet the probably the thing that pushed me over. The edge was the fact that i could kind of you know. I got home. That i was in rio where kabar signed real i got home. I saw that the calling two story mambo which already i knew is going to be ponderous annoying because like what the fuck is a story memo have never had one of those in my life before i knew that could be good because you don't like an story mama say like a all set to go so i read it trying lake respond in a restrain way so i took them happy to work through this but it seems like you guys don't want me to publish this so if you don't want me to publish just let's agree at the intercept isn't accepting this and under my contract with never exercised before. Do you have the right. In the event the intercept doesn't want to publish something to just be able to go for which i had already planned to do. Bentley accepted that lined up but the fact that they were said came back and set not only. Can't you publish the article as you. Haven't we also demand or insist not publish it elsewhere. It would be detrimental to the intercept. Really heightened might believe that censorship was the appropriate word right. Because now i'm not just being pulled. I can't say this year's can't stay at anywhere. And then finally the key point for me was i said to them in that one in response to the story mama. Look you guys clearly disagree with my view of the evidence. I think it's completely reasonable. It's very debatable. With this reasonable have different views. If you think what. I'm saying is persuasive. That my view of the evidence and what the hundred emails show is less than convincing. Go fucking right in article like saying that. I'm full of shit. Go right in article. Seeing today we publish this article by glenn greenwald. Who made this argument. But peter mazar..

"Trump didn't win hearing that they tried. That's all of this about which is why what they were saying to me was is we will publish this. If you remove all the parts about joe biden and just use a much more stripped down version of your article leg attacks the media in some abstract way. Obviously it wasn't willing to do that but that was the real you know usually i right and nobody knows what i'm writing until the very last minute when i published i don't work with editors they don't even know what i'm reading. They marshall dislike extreme editorial scrutiny once they found out it was writing about this because they were petrified of how their circle of friends and colleagues. In like we're gonna react so to be so this isn't this isn't typically the process. Because i mean obviously if you look online the response from so many people making the same joke over and Is that. i'm going to quit. Because editor tried to edit me. This is what i've seen. You know for the past twenty four hours glenn greenwald quit because someone was trying to edit his copy in in some sense in what you're saying is that true but What people are leaving out is the motivation for that is it. Is it fair to say that. This is not the typical editorial process on a glenn greenwald article for the intercept important. You know people can agree with it or not but the fact of the matter is. I have always fifteen years that i've been doing. Journalism had a very absolutist condition for working anywhere which is that absent to bury narrow circumstances one. Where when i'm writing could rise to legal liability for the publication. In which case i will ask for a legal review or if i'm doing very original reporting that's very complex. Difficult snowed snowden reporting or the brazil reporting that we did last year from an archive of Phone records i mean phone chats from brazilian officials Editor in for example. I had been publishing if i had got my my hands on the hard drive Publishing i would work editor to make sure that my through verification process acid. It's difficult reporting. But the the way i began writing the way it began a career in journalism. Aiding go to journalism school and then like were my way into your pints. I was a lawyer. And i just started a blog in two thousand and five for no reason with no plan and i just wanted to say things are being said about the erosion of civil liberties in the war on terror. That worked as i would open the box spot. I would write what i wanted to write in a very passionate way. And then i would hit sandra publish proposed or whatever and no one never intervened in said you can't say this or and my audience really rapidly was working on. It was making an impact in someone. Salon asked me to go there and do that there. And then when the guardian one of the newspapers in the west asked me to do so too with both of them. I said i'll do so only on the condition that i don't have an editor Editor post i have to physically posted to the internet. Slide control not only the content of the timing of when it gets posted and they both rebound system to do so. Until obviously when i started a new media outlet. I wasn't creating newbie outlet to say all this great freedom. I've always had them ready. I wanna give that up to like peter boss or betsy reed from now on like. They're the bassem. Obviously it wasn't fucking doing that. So i in my contract negotiated exactly the same caused. That's how it's always worked for seven years other than the saudi reporting and the brazil reporting maybe like one or two other pieces. Where i said i think it added our show up to this. None of my pieces get edited at all. They go right up to the internet. No one assigns anything. I read about what. I want one. So i understand that. Journalists working big newsrooms left to deal with editors aren't sympathetic to the fact that i'm angry that they try to modify your change what i wrote. That's al was journalists. Were not how i work. And the thing is. It's never been how i've worked with the intercept and the fact that it happened to me for the first time in fifteen years of writing sixties before an election that everyone at the intercept in new york is desperate for joe biden to win and just so happen to be. An article was writing critical of news. Obviously not a coincidence which is why. Call it censorship. Not because going through an editorial process to me is tantamount to censorship of because entirely rules were created to control what my expression specifically. Because of what i was saying about a presidential candidate whom they're all eager to see victorious and that is the framework. That's so crucial to understand. What apple is super super-quick. Contextual points as moynihan can testify reasons website blog especially of for many years Through my editorship up until or maybe towards the end of my editorship we came from blog world blog world was you can go ahead and post it There wasn't I'm not sure that morning hands blog posts ever were edited back then and now. The current reasons. Staffers was the reason why the current reason staffers like. Oh my god you guys worked like that. That's nuts but that's a that a remnants of coming out of blog world which you don't do that anymore no no no we throw. We haven't editing process now. Even i get a dammit atlanta every. Everybody does because. I wanted to drill down that censorship question because a lot of people are are are splitting hairs on bad or a busting your chops. I recall speaking of blog world. You know right after nine eleven places that had never questioned anything that i wrote suddenly were holding or spiking my stories i eventually left and yet i found using the word censorship to describe. That was a little drama queenie What's your response to people who say that's not censorship. That is okay. Heightened editorial scrutiny at the last minute but censorship is actually. You know you don't even have a sub stack. i got it. I mean i know. Censorship resort big punch. But i believe without the slightest doubt that what was going on had nothing to do with our journalists standards. Nobody this isn't article a kind of article. I've written a hundred times. You know in the last seven years like a big media critique hardheaded media critique combined with my view of evidence that deviates from liberal consensus. There was nothing in there that other people hadn't said taibbi wrote an article very similar in its analysis of that evidence can vogel in the new york times had done the same ravi slobby in reason had made many of the similar points as i was making so far away from anything that would have provoked. The editorials scrutiny from perspective. That the reason i call it. Censorship is because it was motivated exclusively by a desire to prevent me from criticizing joe biden so close to the election now. Obviously it's not state censorship by no it doesn't implicate the first amendment. There are.

"Eventually you actually start believing it because the people that you're talking to you are also now saying it and eventually just keep saying it and saying saying people outdoors saying it and you don't have anyone onto dispute or dissent from it which was true for some news media outlet and therefore you start believing it and i think that you know for people who aren't in those elite institutions. You are subject to what. Chris bury aptly described as cognitive capture. The conversation that the elite national press having about the country was so wildly disparate from the perceptions that people have this huge cribbage and then the other problem that starts happening. You know because like this idea. For example that trump is this bashes. He's a hitler. Figure one of the things that so offensive about it. Is that the people who are saying it at the beginning clearly. Didn't believe it right like every year. Nancy pelosi adam shift law. They were saying it. We're voting with the republicans. Trump's party to increase the military budget that trump would control to increase the amount of domestic spying powers. Trump had to block reforms that were being proposed. Obviously if hitler were in power you wouldn't be voting to give him more money for his military your work or spying hours to exercise. Domestically you'll be hitting the panic button if not fleeing the country and the fact that nobody was doing that made it clear that they didn't really mean what they're saying. When you keep making it clear that you don't really mean what you're saying or that what you're saying is so wildly. Remove me reality. is people experience it. Of course gonna stop listening to you. They're going to tune you out when someone to question becomes what is needed as matt asked to reform the media and to restore trust. I think it's so simple. You know. I've had this experience so many times in the last two years where something happens. Like trump gets kobe. And or you know allegations now that like there are irregularities in the vote counting on both sides. I don't have very many new sources. That i feel like i can go read or listen to or watch and trust that what i'm hearing is their best attempt to figure out the world as best as they can. I feel like what i'll be. Hearing is what they know. Their audience hyper partisan readers or listeners. Want to hear or what you have to say. In order to avoid making them angry and keep them subscribing and and not turning the channel in. That is so dangerous. So i think anybody figures out you know like we talked before on this show on your show. Why tucker carlson You know. I think that anybody who figures out how to communicate with different ideological Without pretending that you agree with them still being very clear that you have strong convictions. That are different than theirs. Not pretending that you're like you know kind of like david broder or that above it all boys from nowhere because no one trusts either. That's just as much bullshit but you know you say look. I have very strong views. Political agenda items things i believe in our different than yours but at the same time gonna sacrifice that might may ability to describe the world as best i can actually at the altar of my ideology of you convince people not in one camp or the other across those that. You're somebody they can trust. And if you can create a new outlet which is what kind of the you know. Objective was that that i was pursuing. Instill am that can command that kind of confidence in people that look. You're not going to get everything right. And i know you're still a subjective. We're all subjected. We're still going to see things in a distorted way. But i know that you're going to be trying your best at least and you're not going to care about angering this camper that i think that's what's going to be that's really going to resonate resonate and and restore trust and faith it for good good reason the media has lost. I also think it's such a like outrage. That people focus on individuals going on fox news without wondering why it is that that that you are invited there and non msnbc and not on cnn if you wanna do anything ranging from you know be skeptical of russia gate but also of of war. I mean you know. We've seen ehrmann take on tucker carlson to talk about syria air. Mata also like a un. he can speak at the. Un about this. But he can't get on msnbc or cnn. And you know. I do think that if democrats and elite media cared about winning and reaching people they would be For while they'd have people on their shows but also you know you wanna reach for. This is the thing that will get you want to reach fox news viewers. And you know you're less famous than tucker carlson so the the narrative about you amplifying him doesn't is not true. 'cause he's amplifying you look at it look at it from the from the other perspective instead of like why is this left this or that or i or whoever go on fox news the give the perspective of them so good save you have like a cable show at night like a primetime cable. Shell like your words. A dollar anderson cooper or you know wake reach out our whoever and you know. It's like a pretty good platform you reach a few million people. You don't reach as many as like wrestling or like You know various cartoon or whatever on cable like a reality shows like about housewives reaching a few million people you can get senators amman and like answer your questions. As long as they're in the party that your network represents why if you have like a storyline. The era propagate like russia gate or that trump is a grave threat. All all these things that we cherish. And why would you not want to have somebody on to challenge that so that you can engage in it. And if you're right it'll you'll come out stronger. Your viewers will be more interested You know. I think matt said that he was the last russia gate skeptic journalists to be on msnbc and he was on in january of two thousand seventeen gene so the entire trump presidency four years msnbc talking about russia gate every day. Never having anyone onto even question the premises of it. I was on like one month before that was the last time in december twenty. Sixteen when i was on with melbourne essentially say like hey. I kind of feel like journalists. We probably shouldn't think the word of the cia say. Stop like we need evidence for it. That was the last time. I was on about russia. Russia's involvement including with trump. I just think that what that reflects is that they're not trying to have informed discussions they're not trying to have an interesting show They're trying to keep their platform worth paying them. Millions of dollars a year in getting them on as kind of like see list celebrities on lake. Late night talk shows or whatever and those temptations as chris described in his book are so powerful that you'll essentially adapt to whatever you need to adapt yourself to maintain and preserve them for yourself for your family for.

"From Libertarians. Who have always composed a minority but a substantial minority of my readership. Who agree a lot with my civil liberties? An anti curious visions is exactly not like how is it that you can be so skeptical of government when it comes to military power in civil liberties abuses but then trust them so much to redistribute wealth and I think it goes back to in a lot of ways the left lane critique that I mentioned libertarianism or at least capitalism earlier which is there a lot of people on the left when I mentioned crony capitalism. Who said regard crony capitalism as an oxymoron? That there's no such thing as any kind of capitalism besides crony capitalism then and the founders talked about this as well that you can guarantee a political rights but if you allow income and wealth inequality to get to severe. Eventually it'll road. It will erode political rights and rights of justice because capitalism will create this class of people who are so economically powerful that inevitably it'll spillover into political power as well. I haven't not to think that I happen to think that you can have a capitalist system but need government rules to regulate it to make sure that it doesn't turn into corrupt crony capitalism Of Soft Socialism is very similar. So I think that you can have income inequality wealth inequality so severe that you no longer have a meaningful meaningfully free political system because you can have it in aim only like we have it. But then at the same time have the class of oligarchs and wealthy people be so economically powerful that they control the levers of government so trying to eliminate not eliminate two zero but reduced to a reasonable degree social and economic inequality is not to me dangerous in the sense that you vast surveillance power or other power in the hands of the government. It's actually necessary to prevent governments from becoming perverted in their own power. Because I don't see how you can sustain even a democratic system where people are elected if the ones to whom they're beholden are the wealthiest people so when it comes time to bail out the bail out the country. They're the ones who get the money. And my understanding of Libertarian Doctrine. To the extent that you know I read. I read reason magazine for a long time and have listened to allow Tabuchi. Tyrians debate and speak is that many Libertarians. Maybe most account for the fact that society can become so unequal in its wealth distribution so you have a tiny portion of the population who are billionaires and everybody else who barely is able to maintain subsistence for their families that some government intervention is justified in order to at least equal the playing field to some degree because they concentrated economic our like monopolies for example need government intervention. I do think there's an opportunity for the same kinds of government abuse of power when you're empowering them to redistribute wealth as when you're empowering them to monitor the population but I also think that there can be safeguards in controls like there is with government surveillance will be let government surveilled people. But we say you have to go to court in order to justify why search warrant is needed. In this case I think you can have oversight and regulatory functions for how wealth gets read redistributed as well. But I don't deny there's attention I just don't think it's an air resolvable on and I think absent government intervention like pure unrestrained capitalism as the founders warn will lead to a la- Garki as opposed to anything resembling democracy or republic where the rights exist on paper but can be easily overridden by unconstrained power. That comes from unconstrained wealth. And and I'm I'm more interested in your answer than trying to rebut any of that but as you mentioned all of that it makes me think about the role that you've played in the conversation about surveillance and I always wondered what your thoughts are now about where we stand and about the progress that has been made and those issues if you are optimistic about our ability to actually achieve reforms and keep people interested in these issues or if you are somewhat disappointed by the way things have unfolded since the revelations about the mass surveillance programs that exist in those same programs have played a role in the the Russia gate controversy. You just mentioned the court stutter. Important or is supposed to be instrumental in restraining government and preventing abuses. But of course we have seen some things. Recently that suggest the system hasn't worked out necessarily as well as some people Michael Moynihan thought it might don't bring me very interesting. I'm going to talk to you about down here. I'm GonNa go find those imposed them on twitter. Mock Michael John Glenn in your calm down on twitter feed nicer and nothing happened. It's it's GonNa Be Gentle Mockery Mockery for sure. I Miss I miss before. You're GonNa there's just I miss update seven. I didn't give up all my own mental held. No I think because the FIS court was always a fucking joke and everybody recognize it as such. It has like a ninety eight point nine nine point eight percent approval rating in its thirty year history and the reason is obvious which is only one side gets to show up and has a lawyer. I know very well like any. Does that if only one side shows up only one lawyer shows up and get to say whatever they want with no questioning opposition or alternative facts presented. You're always GONNA win. It's like the most rigged system possible so only the Justice Department goes to the court but the dynamic that's even more disturbing as the following which is if the government comes and says to a judge in secret. We need to eavesdrop on this person. Because we think they're plotting to blow up times square or a subway or an airplane even if the judge is unconvinced by the evidence presented which often they are. The incentive overwhelmingly is to sign. The visor warned. Because if you sign the warrant and it out. The person is in danger. Nobody's ever going to no no harm. No foul but if you're the judge. Who Rejects? That is a war and the person goes in blows up subway and kills three hundred people the first thing the FBI is going to say. Don't blame us. Tried to monitor this person's communications and that judge right there said no and that the blood is on that person's hand so intrinsic to the whole process has always been the overwhelming incentive to. Just be a rubber stamp which is really the intention of it to begin with. Everybody knew that and it was only during Russia gate. What everybody certainly knew it? As part of the SNOWDEN story I remember very well and they barely announced about the fence. Oh worry we have. This great is a process in place as a safeguard because everybody already knew because of the two thousand five. Ashini story that the New York Times broke about domestic eavesdropping where they circumvented advisor. Nobody could understand. Why did you circumvent is that? There's no reason they say yes. In every case it was common knowledge that it was a bullshit. Illusory process but Russia gate is really what revitalize the mythology around all of these safeguards because the liberal resistance fighters the underground brave armed fighters against here in the United States elevated CIA FBI and homeland security agents as their champions right. It's like the weirdest resistance. Aber a resistance that venerates the security state of that country. I think it's the first time it's ever happened. There's a first for everything I other movement venerating. The security agency armed security agents doubted states and they made them all on cable there. Michael Hayden's book. That Matt is holding up another one by James Clapper very honorable people who are now liberal stars. I remember you know like they would go. They would have hacker conferences and they would wear like Robert Mueller t-shirts as though he were takeover era even though he was he was nine eleven. Fbi Director who lied about Iraq. Wmd's that became the liberal. Ethos they venerated these people as experts and of course they were saying during Russia Gate. Oh look they got a visor warrant against Carter page? That is serious shit. You know there's real substance to it because you don't get biza words easily unless you have really rock solid evidence. That person is an agent of the Russian government and of course by the way that New Yorker article does mention and I remember. I think this is right where where I think. It was Ian Frazier that wrote it was that WHO Yeah designed to convict me as being mentally ill. Which is why I refuse to see what everybody's saying sees. Which is the compress collusion right? Before is that are equally. Means the drop is about as a result of this podcast. There's one part of that piece where he's where he's like. Well you know. This interview happened before Carter Page and all that looking back at it and I'm like you know that kind of guy that was ambling through like Manhattan. Hello Russian. It was like insane I remember. I'm Chris Hayes and they would like spend all day twitter mocking Carter page for being this like autistic clown which was offensive very S. I should add like mocking him for being that. And then at the same time insisting that this was a confession that he was even the mastermind. Agent the Kremlin here to subvert American democracy and of course it turned out that even Robert Muller said. There was zero evidence that he ever they were. He was so fucking wrongly vilified and they got a FIS awaren- on him to read his conversations one of the worst abuses a us the US government can possibly commit getting a warrant to survival US citizens communications in the middle of an election based on fraudulent affidavits. And no one treats that like it's serious because they all took it seriously at the time so yeah I mean. I think that that has been one of my big. Tom's not just with Russia gate. But with a whole ray warriors resistance is that they took these people who I loved halt for decades and venerated them into the funds of wisdom the fucking CIA. Those are the people that we trust now. Giving Henry Kissinger didn't have anything to say about Russia Gate. That was because then he would have been wheeled out to be the the other guy. Just be next the clapper and yeah no it is. It is funny. I've actually thought that you know as coming to the end here. I thought we were going to get through this podcast without mentioning. Russia came up and we needed a little the fire. I'm happy about that. I'm always happy to talk about it. What can I can. I ask you that that that question though which I think is something that it's not a political question but it is something that comes up when your name comes up when I talked to other journals about it and when I see an online and the rest of it is the fire is the Glenn Greenwald Passion and in that piece you said well..

"glenn greenwald" Discussed on The Fifth Column

"Glen. I will make the wildly unpopular case that it is not the role of government to do this. I do think playing the role of firefighter. When in fact there is you know a raging inferno is almost is certainly appropriate and you can figure out who pays for that afterwards. I just don't think that's the case. Here there was not in fact a federally mandated. Stay at home order. This was happening at the state levels. And perhaps the states then have some obligation to compensate people for for requiring them to stay at home. I think the only thing that we can really say about these federal programs is in some extreme circumstances. There are people who you know definitely benefited materially from receiving these checks but this was a primarily political exercise giving checks to virtually everyone with with sort of some modest restrictions and then these other massive bailouts like the airline bailout and the the rather bizarrely designed P P P loan program. I think that's three-piece. Maybe it was only two I I. I have a very hard time seeing those programs as being particularly useful and even the particular policy that we selected a broadly endorsed strategy of encouraging. Everyone to stay at home almost indefinitely because in many cases early on there wasn't a very specific timetable. Offered apparently folks are able to renew these timetables for as long as they want in a way. That makes me pretty uncomfortable. A it doesn't necessarily seem like obviously good strategy to me in the long run or even in the medium run and if that's the case then a posture by which we can simply subsidize that sort of policy without really debating or discussing it extensively actually seems like a net bad so I think it's probably not appropriate for government to do and worse than that. I think it's probably harmful for them to simply be able to do it. Especially under circumstances like these so unpopular case made. I'm not even sure I buy all of that. Let's think I do. I mean you know. I do think it goes back to to what Michael earlier. Which is there is a small group of people numbers of whom I think constitutes the entirety of this call Certainly the majority. You have the luxury of not having to leave their house in order to earn their livelihood. I know I was working at home and had worked at home for many years. So my ability to work is impeded really. I mean I can't fly. Go give a speech or whatever but ninety five percent of the work that I was already doing a can still continue to because I always did own strew for a lot of journalist you for a lot of other professionals. But there's a huge part of the workforce. Obviously that doesn't have that luxury or they really are faced with the choice of either staying at home in without a government check starving and having their entire family star literally not dramatically or going out in exposing not just themselves but everyone with whom they live to a what obviously is a dangerous and and and lethal virus and dangerous. Even when it doesn't kill so you know it's hard to I think make the case that there's no room for the state. I do think that the point that Michael alluded to is really an interesting one. Which is I remember when I first started writing early on in my writing. Courage with five two thousand six when I was writing about bush-cheney executive power visas and it was always I never. I didn't really. I hadn't been writing about politics for one time. I didn't consider myself a leftist at all. I just been practicing. Constitutional live is kind of applying those principles to politics and because it was against Bush and Cheney by chance I got label laptops because anyone who criticized Bush and Cheney was on the left I was saying things like Kay. I don't think we should put people in prison without like actually charged with the crime improving their guilt things that I thought really controversial and my dream was always to make that transcendent of ideology and politics that that should be valued at the right and the left could agree on because everyone has an interest and having the government. Not Be able to do that because even if you have the President. One day tomorrow you might eight the president. I was cheered on by liberal blogs but at the same time doing a lot of work with Kato so I got to like realize my dream a little bit but I think you know now fifteen years later this political realignment really is reality. Even though people aren't fully ready to accept it yet because we're so ingrained with this try ballistic right versus left passion which is why a lot of people on the left have been going on. Tucker Carlson why there was a lot of convergence of things like Russia Gate in suspicion and skepticism about pronouncements by the CIA or anonymous Hannigan Leagues but in particular now seeing. How both in two thousand eight. When there was this emergency bailout package and again now in two thousand and twenty in the name of the pandemic. The vast vast majority of the money went to individuals ordinary citizens in the working class but to huge corporations that fun both political parties. And that's why you can have you know A. O. C. Denouncing the tax breaks given to Amazon one of the richest countries in the world to get them to New York and then Tucker Carlson doing a whole segment on why. She's right because I do think. Politics is transforming now very palpably invisibly from that kind of Standard Laugh Greg Dogma into an insider outsider anti-establishment pro establishment politics. Because people see that. Even if you're at reason magazine in love capitalism with the US government is doing isn't capitalism at all it's crony capitalism which people on the left will say is redundancy or people on the right will say is a perversion but whatever is true. It's what we have so anytime there's money that goes out of Washington. It's going to go to the people that control the parties. Which are these huge corporations? And unless you're Mitch McConnell on Chuck Schumer or people who think like them. You're going to be revolt in by that for the same reasons to the same extent and I think that's really shifting how politics is is frame interviewed Justna mosh on Tuesday night. We're recording this on a win. And that was. That's her part of his pitch and he's repeating it in every interview. Context is for what mad presidency of running? He's running for president. Ed Thanks Ed. That the The bailouts stimulus stuff is crony capitalism. It's it's really awfully done awfully administered. It was tailored in a way so that Republicans can say that they're favoring their constituents Democrats can say that there are favoring there's not nothing universalized about it So he's clearly that's GonNa be part of how he tries to distinguish himself from Joe Biden and Donald Trump. My question to you Glenn. You sound even kind of more optimistic about the potential of that making a new politics available then I am but do you think that that has any chance to adhere itself to be exploited by either in a mosh shore. You know a Howie Hawkins presidential campaign or just anything in opposition to show by Donald Trump. I mean I don't know for the twenty two thousand election but obviously like a lot of people on what I call the. The left are excited about somebody like Josh. Holly he's talking a lot about how challenging tack monopolies. And you know I do. Think one of the overlooked trends of the new for lack of a better term alright ascension in Europe and even in the. Us is that it does tend to be economically populist at least in its rhetoric if not in its government in August if not in its governance so when Marine Le Pen ran for president of France she ran to the to the last not just mccrone and not just the centre-right parties but even to the Socialists. Saying that you know sort of the appearance. I think it's a very tucker. Carlson kind of way of looking at things definitely not Nigel farage. Way of thinking about things. Which is let's close the borders and keep people from coming to our country and taking advantage of our benefits. Because if we let them do that. We're going to run out because it's finite once we do that let's treat. Our citizens are working class better and eliminate corporate domination and control because up until now these corporations that are transnational in Niger. Sanity and in an allegiance. Don't have any concern for you. But they control the government and that to our politicians care for so even trump when he was running in two thousand sixteen said it's outrageous to think about cutting social security and Medicare and Medicaid. We might even be thinking about expanding on that. Was Kinda the Steve Bannon approach? Which was. Let's do the first bill as bipartisan. Infrastructure Program. Where we spent a Shitload of money create jobs with Chuck Schumer Nancy Pelosi. Let's then close the borders and protect social security and Medicare because at Jared Kushner and other influences bannon lost out on that but that is a really potent political package. That a the left doesn't have an answer to you screen. Racism all the time about the immigration part of that vision but even Obama. Hillary of sad if you don't have a better answer than just screaming racism to immigration concerns. You'RE GONNA lose because people are very concerned about it for non racist reasons. But if you don't have a populist answer of your answer populism is Joe Biden Hillary Clinton neoliberalism and the continuation of this political order. That people have no have destroyed. You Ge- amounts of jobs. It's hard to see how you're going to compete with that And you know I think. That's why trump even twenty sixteen said. He thinks the best candidate that he would have had the hardest time beating was Bernie Sanders Because Bernie. Sanders speaks that message. Where is the easiest person said Steve? Bannon was Hillary because she's the embodiment of Nafta Globalism and status quo institutions. So I think there's probably not going to be with trump and bite in any real alternative in these third parties because third parties can't compete although I do think trump rhetorically is gonna run off Biden on things like trade and the corporatism because even though trump signed this huge tax cut. That benefited the wealthy. Because he knows that's a winning political scheme but once you get a kind of non clownish politician capable of articulating that political approach in a compelling way. I think it's going to be very dangerous for Democrats who right now have no answer to begin part because they're funded by Silicon Valley and Wall Street and they can't escape the Dogma orthodoxies demanded of those funders and keeping in mind that Bernie Sanders downplayed. This you know in the last campaign. But it'd been quite vocal about saying that restrictions on immigration He favoured certain restrictions because men his argument not a racist argument. Was that you know. More immigrants depress working class wages. And that's a pretty common argument. Used to become an argument and to your point about Europe. It's this is something that predated the migrant crisis the migrant crisis allowed a lot of those far-right parties in Europe to grab a greater share of power. But you know in two thousand four five. The the uniting principle of all those parties was you know their anti Islam stuff of course which kind of is disappeared a little bit but it was. It was with the exception of one party. It was economics and the Norwegian far right party the progress party is a Thatcherite Party. The rest of them were socialist parties. I mean has pointed out far to the left of many of the mainstream social democratic parties in that was a formula that worked for them particularly in France where you could make the case consistently going to the south of France and other places where there used to be or even north friends with his industrial friends where all these factories had left in. Make the anti trade case. Now I will. I'm still very pro-trade person. But when I I've mentioned this story a bunch when until sixteen when then I went to the the biggest used to live your job. I do of course. Yeah I mean once it goes. I'm I'm moving to Brazil and going to be the commerce hardcore overnight but when I went to the steelworkers union I think it was in Indiana and they had pictures of Bernie Sanders on the wall and everybody I talked to was. This is after Hillary had grabbed the nomination they were all gonNa vote for trump and I was like. Oh this is perfect we can shoot here and we were shooting in there and everyone's in a great place. They're all fantastic. People and I grew up in a union has sold. They're all a guy smoking cigarettes. And they'll mustaches. Valencia Grit and the all love Bernie and they were like it was so funny. Because you see these people who are like just working class people from Indiana to know what they're talking about Bernie speaks no no. They all knew that Hillary Clinton had called. What's it called the the Typically as the gold standard? And they're like no no. This is Nafta this. Is We load this woman in the only reason will vote for trump is because Hillary Clinton stole stole the primary from Bernie and I was like wait. You guys like that sort of disheveled socialist from Vermont who has never lost that Brooklyn accent. That's resonating with you. And they're like yeah of course in so it didn't surprise me. I think in two thousand seventeen when I thought okay. Everything's kind of shifting amongst conservatives and we had a conversation last podcast about this about Tucker Carlson in a friend of mine by the way gave me a very hard time about this because I I wasn't hard enough about Tucker's immigration stuff but I said no we're just talking about Tucker's transformation but his transmission didn't bring up. Tucker you have to insert the phrase white nationalist. That's a little bit of trouble about this tiny tiny bit. So that's why I know the rules to help you out so none of this really surprised me and I think for for people who are more libertarian under this it terrifies me in some ways. Because I think Steve. Bannon is wrong about a lot of his economic vision for America. I think the same thing a Bernie Sanders that said during the primary. I did get a lot of emails from listeners. You become a sanders supporter..

"AM corbusier to those am Covari off found your lost Mohammed. In which of course reported as a fighter fistfight broke out like it was the worst both sizing I've seen in a while and also how your role as like how fatherhood has changed or not changed the way you experience politics and your own personal decisions breath especially in terms of the danger in living in Brazil. Well it's interesting. I think one of the things people don't realize about Boston are like when they constantly compare him to trump or to like before eight leaders of Western Europe like Marine Le Pen or Nigel Garage. Or those kind of people is. He's actually much different in a lot of different ways. He's really throwback to this this Cold War right wing authoritarian who's obsessed with murdering communists torturing them yeah but at torturing them and then murdering ordering them and he's also a religious fanatic and anti LGBT hatred is a central part of His political success. Because Brazil's a very religious country. It's the largest Catholic country in the world but it's much more fanatic. Call call in a religious sense because of the growing evangelical movement that has really taken over large swath of Brazilian politics and Bolsonaro Oros success in demagoguing. LGBT equality he you know basically convinced a large percentage of the population population that public schools are now geared toward teaching children about homosexuality in order to convert them so that that gay teachers can fuck their young children. which is you know like playing with the most dangerous primal fear that people have and one one of the reasons why the reporting that I did was so dangerous is because my husband in January of Twenty nineteen and kind of took center stage the only LGBT member of the Brazilian Congress in the history of the Congress had been elected? who was a dedicated? Any of the Bolsonaro family who had spit on them who had been threatened by them. fled the country out of fear of his own life and David because he ran for Congress and became the alternate autumn by law. Took that seat so it was like one. LGBT member of Congress fled lead the country in fear of his own life. Boston are that day posted. Great Day celebrating the fact that he fled and then David took his seat elevated us us as a gay couple into this like really bright spotlight at exactly the moment that Bolsonaro assumed the presidency and his spawns the sons. It's like the guy. Saddam Hussein sons like elevated themselves greatly in their own power like one got elected to the Senate the other one got the biggest vegas vote in the history of the Congress of the Bolsonaro family assumed great power and David and I became probably the most visible. LGBT couple even before the supporting began and then once we started publishing these leaked conversations so much of the attacks were anti gay in nature and and not just anti gay. But you know dragging our kids into the spotlight and it's interesting that you mentioned Lake my new experience of being a father. We adopted two young among boys in two thousand seventeen when Boston. Ro threatened to imprison me explicitly. He also in the same press conference claim that David and I had married fraudulently and adopted two Brazilian boys and he emphasized boys fraudulently in order for me to. Oh boy being deported because under deportation law. If you're married to a Brazilian citizen or you've adopted or the parent of two Brazilian children. You can't be deported. So we drag our family coming into it said our family was essentially a fraud. He called his. Yeah and then the right wing hose to attack me physically the reason then why. That was such a tense interview was because six weeks before I appeared on that right wing radio program. which by the way you you know I also do that? In Brazil. It's very popular right wing radio and Youtube TV program. I appear on their six weeks earlier. That pro bolsonaro journalists. LS Had gone on his own program and said that a judge should investigate whether David and I are properly caring for children essentially saying that. There's a possibility that our children should be taken away from us. Put back into the orphanage from which we adopted them and one of the reasons why I was so animated in so angry sitting next to him was because this paternal instincts that I honestly didn't know that I add kicked in and it was like I was sitting next to the person who was essentially calling for our children to be taken away from US and return turn to an orphanage and when I called him a coward for using our children that way and for refusing to say the same thing about his co workers or his bosses were both couples. Apple's you know the the people in the in the couple both work on whether they should have their children taken away out of Vino concerned that they're not properly caring for their children. The only said about us that's physically assaulted me and it wasn't just that he physically assaulted me but Boston. Our sons his girl. Benny members of his party went on twitter and celebrated the fact that I was slapped in the face. They said next time it should be done with the close fast or the violence should be worse. So there's a lot of political Michael Violence in the air in Brazil. It's a very dangerous political movement and there's no one that would dispute that the reporting did was by far the biggest threat to that government in two thousand nineteen and I became the public face of it along with David and the fact that we weren't openly aren't openly. LGBT couple with two children kind of a living embodiment Lahti Mint of the sort of the proof that their attempt to stigmatizing demonize what it means to live and lgbt life trying to convince LGBTQ to us that their futures are going to be filled with solitude in disease and unhappiness. We're kind of proof that that's why it just stimulated so much more hatred and made it more more primal and violent. I haven't left my house since June without armed guards in an armored vehicle nor his David we had to drastically enhance the security measures our own house. Our kids are very aware of that. It radically changed our lives in every conceivable way. But that's what what it means to do. Actual resistance against the fascist government. How do your kids have you ever have you heard them like describing you and David's roles and describing the political situation? Have you ever heard them doing that or do they talk about it with you like Do you have any sense of how they understand what's happening. Yeah I mean you know what's amazing. Kids who grow up without parents are did develop faculties and skills that I never had when I was their age because I relied on my mother and father to protect me into monitor the world for dangers in to teach me about what was going on kids. Did you grow up without parents have to develop. It's kind of like you know someone's blind they're hearing becomes enhance. Obviously it's a tragic thing for kids to grow up without parents errands but there is this kind of I. Don't WANNA call it a benefit but like a result they develop capacities that other kids. Don't have and so. Our kids are like incredibly sleep perceptive and they just fit so perfectly into our lives. They're very charismatic. They're very charming. They're very smart. Yeah they like they were a little weary of the some of the dogs at first but they even loved the dogs now so yeah. They like they're really proud of us. They like some kids in school. Have made you know food pejorative comments occasionally about us and they like almost got into fights over it and we talked to them about how you can like debate with words but not with fast. They're very aware yeah. They're very aware of all of that. One thing I wanted to ask you about you're going through something that very few journalists the United States ever have to experience the sort of immediate the least the ones who work entirely within the country. What do you think living overseas in that kind of environment has done in terms of your perspective perspective on reporting on the United States? Do you think it's enhanced it in a way or what. What do you think the experience of living abroad is done for you? Yeah I think it's been incredibly beneficial official from my work as a journalist like being you know having distance between New York and Washington and then me thousands of miles away for one thing. It means that I'm not constantly interacting with people who are immersed in elite political on journalistic culture. So I'm not constantly connected to it. We're all influenced by the people. We talked to the people who are around us and so kind of having this distance stints from it. I think has enabled me to have some greater independence. It also gives you a different perspective. I mean I remember after living in Brazil for two or three years I just woke up one day. I don't know why this insight came to me but I just realized it seems kind of been all but at the time. It seemed like an epiphany I realized there's never a moment in Brazilian political discourse and Brazil's a big country. It's the fifth most populous country on the planet. It has twenty million people people just a few less than the. US has it's comparable in geographical size to the US it has tons of oil reserves its geostrategic importance. It's the most influential fluential country on the continent and yet there's never a moment where there's any discussion of like which countries should we bomb like. Should we go to war with this country. Should we drop bombs on this country. Should we send and so when you kind of remove yourself from the US you start to realize that certain things that are just taken for granted chanted as normal in the US are actually incredibly abnormal. Really kind of rogue in the fat in the sense that almost nobody else does it. I think that also the way I built my journalism career starting my own blog and then always negotiating for the right to just not be edited. The fact that I have my own independent following that gives me kind of leverage in platform has just kind of contributed to my ability to be independent and not have to you know. Please season appease the people who will power in the world of journalism fantastic you paid in rubles by the way what. What's what's your favorite part of the Russian assets benefit package? I was going to ask you guys. Whether you're GonNa pay me the ruble's you promise me by wire transfer or how that works ask you guys know better than I definitely notice. Yeah yeah that was in Moscow. For How many years Matt that all that compromise was compiled about you. Yeah Yeah Yeah. No I'm I'm the I'm the Liaison Glenn thank you so much for coming on I think Katie and I both would agree. That what you're doing thing is both impactful. It's incredibly brave. Hope you're taking care of yourself and taking precautions. I've actually worried about a couple of times over the last year Keep keep it up but be safe. Yeah Yeah you guys are doing great work and I really appreciate your bunny inviting me on you. Tell your food in your foyer. Should tell your kids that you should be like you can t just instead of using your fists just call you can use your words and call people cody the cavity. Say Kobe.

"But the reality is no matter. What else is true that no one was charged charged with criminally conspiring with Russia over the election and the Mola report concluded that there was no evidence to establish that conspiracy took place which was was the crux of the entire debate? All along and any honest person would admit that so. I don't need apologies. I am very comfortable looking at myself in the mirror as a result of what happened and I hope you guys are too comfortable looking at you mirror thank you. There has been some softening though. I mean like you look look at the Erik went bowl series recently in the Washington Post. And he's you know that I'm actually surprised by how aggressive those stories were. You know about talk about Rachel and about some of the looking back at the Russian reporting that. That's the Pres- you. I didn't think the post would would run. It's so ironic that you bring that up because one of the things. They didn't actually agree with you. And your book about was you essentially predicted. I don't know when that book was finished but I assume it was like much earlier in two thousand. Nineteen Yeah Hey dink think that they were going to turn rates them out into their. Judy Miller basically like. We're going to pretend that this is just one person who like wine on over the line and was journalist reckless. While the rest of the media you know essentially was very responsible. And that's been like Margaret Sullivan's theme team you know like the Cable News. Personalities aren't really journalists like serious reporters at the New York Times and the Washington Post. Got It right. Trying to isolate later was your prediction. I thought like you know what I think. Rachel Maddow is too valuable of an asset and to popular for that to happen but I think did you actually turned out to be right that Eric mccollum was very aggressive in repudiating. What she did in that did surprise me but I also felt like it was kind of a fulfilment of of your expectation that they were going to try and isolate her and scapegoat her as a means of saving themselves? I think you're right though. It's not going to go to the degree. The Judy Miller thing went. I mean the locher make some criticism but it's not going to be like yeah like you can replace you know you know a faceless front page national security reporter much more easily than you can replace a valuable famous cable able news. You know face that Rachel is. She's worth hundreds of millions of dollars to comcast as evidenced by ten million dollars a year contract and Dan. You don't just throw that away where you throw away. Judy Miller and just put someone in her place. We'll do the same thing. Can you summarize the major bombshell reporting reporting that the intercepted on both narrow the effect of it and also on Lula so yes so essentially you know the biggest biggest political presence in Brazil since two thousand fourteen has been this anti corruption probe called car washed that has resulted in the imprisonment Dominica. Dozens of business leaders billionaires all our political leaders from multiple parties and the biggest had on the pike was the former two-term term highly popular President Lula Silva and judge who oversaw that process and who endorsed all kinds of highly controversial practices practices that had never been previously used in Brazil. Sergio moral after he found Lula guilty on very dubious charges and then sentenced him to who a decade in prison which resulted in lieu as not being able to run for president in two thousand eighteen at a time when all polls showed that he would win if he were to run including beating Bolsonaro Arab substantial amount the judge who removed from the race by finding him guilty which paved the way for Boston or to win then accepted a position as basically the highest ranking member of Boston are as government as a very powerful minister of Justice and Public Security. Were all the powers of law enforcement. Surveillance and investigation were consolidated under him and our source hacked into the telephones of the prosecutors and as they were communicating with the judge for years worth of communications nations at an archive that he gave us. That is bigger than the SNOWDEN archive and we were able to show that there was just systemic corruption on the part of these prosecutors were idealising eternity heroes as well as Sergio Mora who is probably the most popular and powerful person in Brazil and eventually lead to the freeing of Lou so as well as dozens of other prisoners it's going to lead to the disciplining and removal of the head prosecutor and it really destabilize the Boston our government because of how critical Sergio Moro is to that government. Can you talk about The situation in Brazil. And how you kind of experience it personally you mentioned about how there have been so many threats against you you were also like someone. Hey you On radio I mean there was video footage of them hitting you while you were on the radio boats..

That is bigger than the SNOWDEN archive and we were able to show that there was just systemic corruption on the part of these prosecutors were idealising eternity heroes as well as Sergio Mora who is probably the most popular and powerful person in Brazil and eventually lead to the freeing of Lou so as well as dozens of other prisoners it's going to lead to the disciplining and removal of the head prosecutor and it really destabilize the Boston our government because of how critical Sergio Moro is to that government. Can you talk about The situation in Brazil. And how you kind of experience it personally you mentioned about how there have been so many threats against you you were also like someone.

"Them because they already already could have had this belief at Berea Sanderson agenda issues. I don't even know what to say about this common Donna. 'cause I'm angry and I don't trust myself to not say things that I'll have to apologize. which is for? I understand what she's saying that there is a thing that's out there. It's not his fault it's a fabricated narrative. So so what is what you're he's saying is because there is a media narrative out there that he's going to be more so friends which is true. She's not saying that she's saying because he has agenda right right. What she should be saying is because the media has invented this gender problem around a candidate who was endorsed by Gloria Steinem in the nineties called an honorary a woman when she was stumbling for him and his congressional reelection campaign yes who has more more or less male support base than any other candidate right but what but she's saying is also it is on some level true that because of all the messaging and the last four years? Is it going to land a little harder. Sure right it. And you know Bernie's he's an old white guy vulnerable to this but the decision to say something like that on the air you know you know what kind of perfect that's GonNa also. I do think there's a big difference between saying because he has been framed as having a gender issue right. She's really accepting that as fact that he has an issue. Yes that same kind of language that you can read into it. What did she say? Exactly Watch it please. Let's go to the videotape. The thing that really hurts or any standards standards about this is that you know it does kind of seem like something you could see him saying because he has had this gender problem historically workweek. And that's the that's why if voters do believe it if it sits laboon versa. That's why would sit with them because they already could have had this belief that Bernie Sanders. It has a generous voice but he's had this gender problem historically could these at this media gender problem. Historically I mean it's ask. There's nothing that she could have said though that it makes you could see you're not going to say you could see him saying that. There are structural barriers. And that there's a the AH trump will be nefarious towards women because Senator Gender so I'm going to push back a lot a lot. What she's saying is she's trying to infer that because he has a problem in this area that he's going to be more vulnerable to this? But it's you know it is also Conc- I also can imagine consultants talking amongst themselves and saying this is GonNa hurt Bernie more because because because you know when you on on the media to be a pundit you have your stuff like lined up you're talking of course see you if you want. What you could have said is like look starkly? Sanders has been accused of having even saying that has been accused of having a gender problem like I expecting her to be like turn to the camera. The Bernie Boone. Narrative is a weaponized smear that visible is is as women and people of Color. But you know but I'm just saying that that that's an easy move and then another interesting thing happened. Tulsi Gabbard tweeted something that I think was pretty relevant Germane to this conversation she tweeted. I also met with Bernie Sanders before announcing my candidacy. We had a nice one on one conversation. Informed informed him that it'll be running for president in that meeting. He showed me the greatest respect and encouragement just as he always has. Okay now I just want us since we like to talk with the media. Let's just go to how New York Times acid W herndon responded to this tweet with a Gif of David Robinson is that who is a no no so in this gift. It's kind of like the white woman it's like the white woman who wasn't being talked to butts into the conversation since the irony is. I think pretty problematic tweet. This gift of the white woman standing up. It's like the WHO you know we weren't talking to you. And and basically there's a black apparently famous athletes Romans. Yes there's David Robinson you see him and the woman like pops up right in front of him. A white woman with blonde hair and Pearl earrings stands up so basically this this journalist that the New York Times is saying Tulsi Gabbert. WHO's the one woman of color and the race basically? It's like literally sit down. Sit Down and shut. Yeah that's okay uh-huh now the irony of course is that Tulsa Gabbard or someone Woman of color and the rage and the white woman standing up at Pearl earrings and blonde hair. If I had to say who she looked like in the campaign right now it would have to be Warren. Though that's the that's the sad thing the irony is that looks like warrant if we had to say which one it look like it's really sexist. Treatment Treatment Tulsi by the way where all of her political calculations are based on like some emotional Desire for tension and all these people. I just wanted to make sure that you know guys that anyone who's tweeting something like that about Tolsey. I hope you didn't pretend to be a feminist or feminist ally or ally hope. You didn't pretend that like to be upset about criticism of Hillary Clinton as being sexist or misogynist inherently because you're engaging in a major sexist trope except she's a Russian agent so right exactly. Yeah so so. That happened The other thing we we should probably talk about is the exiting. We have another another victim. Camp Crystal Lake Cory Booker ended his campaign and must've have been so rough for him was not possum. Yeah Yeah that's the tail end of it. Yes it's the dog. Eat Dog World the campaign. This could go on definitely wrath bow. What's what's to say but I actually think this is going to be the thing in this campaign because even two percent in this race could be a big? So what are we going to go. He's going to throw in his lot with Warren. Right has with think no biden. Now now interesting I would go but what do you think I feel like you know if he and Rosario Dawson are still together. This is going to be a tense moment because I feel like where's areas like. Look I like Bernie bye I love you and so it's okay that you run for for president. That's fine but now I think she's going to want him to endorse Bernie. I don't think that's going to happen. Well then Br Rosario better kick him to the curb so got a great discussion coming up. We have a great discussion with Pulitzer Prize. Winning journalist Glenn in Greenwald bestselling author founded the winner Oscar winner found with the intercept and in the in the middle of one of the biggest journalism stories in the world right now which is his conflict with the ball. Scenario government exposes that he's been involved with so it's a wide ranging discussion. We hope to have we hope fingers crossed fingers. Many dogs owner dog twenty four dogs living on his and he runs an amazing shelter shelter for animals. That's run. He hired homeless people to run the shelter. While it's pretty great and I just want to share he end Matt Taibbi and I are all featured heard on this very pretty print. That's been making its way around. Instagram called the unsold on Seoul thing. I looked pretty ugly. Like look at my shaws. Does it look like Dan real life. I Gosh I hope not anyway but orb.

Do Dumb stuff all the time and it's not just about sanders but I. I'm just surprised. Warren I this misread for me. I similarly you a native American scandal right just bad really bad judgment. Bad political judgmental. Dan like she handled the terribly. This this is like they they had to think about. This is the only thing I can think of. Is that some reporter got hold of this. Yeah and pressed it to the point where they had to just lean into it as opposed. But I don't believe that. Do you know I mean but even let's say that had happened happened what would the what would the smart thing have been. It could've deny right but like no. He said that he would weaponize tools including sexes. I mean that's what should it has been. I mean if if you're if you're a reporter working on this and Elizabeth Warren Says No. That's not what happened. Even if you have somebody saying she told me something else. You can't really do it. It would be difficult. I don't know we don't know any of this stuff. It's still a very surprising. Yeah now as situation that was one thousand nine hundred seven by the way that that happened but yeah I I totally agree that it's To give her the benefit of the doubt to give Warren the benefit of the doubt like that she didn't her campaign campaign. Didn't leak this then. It was a really bad move to not deny it not pushing. Even if they'd release it you say no. Oh you know San Bernie and I were talking about it and he said that Roh trump will actually that would have been more effective. Frankly yeah right. Because then she lays out the argument she liked pre-empts. AMC Trump's GonNa do now because then the emotional damage is done. That's good next time. Please do that Warren. Yeah you should hire me if you WANNA wreck your your take on this role to videotape of Cnn I think the thing that really hurts standards about this is that you know it does kind of seem like something.

"Welcome to useful welcome d-fs hits I'm Katie Helper. And that is until you do that right. A lot of stuff going on in the last twenty four thirty six hours although by the time you yes it'll be like seventy two hours. We'll make it so good that you won't mind it'll just flow. It'll go back in time when you're watching the whole all space time continuum thing. We'll be violated a doctor who exactly so we have a great show talking to a friend of show Glenn Greenwald G she. He demanded to be on the cut that we don't want to. We don't WanNA blow up his spot but I think he'd be comfortable with that sharing that mission to cut it out and it's going to be very very interesting thing in animated conversation and a lot of stuff this week involving the campaign just a lot of crazy messaging the looniness happening on the eve of the debate eight this week so we'll get to all that we should start off as we always do at the top of the show only four Republicans. Democrats psych isn't that we're isn't that terrible lots of stuff on all sides so it's Republicans this week. So Republicans suck. I think it's just the sort of General Jingoism McCarthyism thing that the Republicans have no lean into after three years of complaining about the Russia. Thing right after three years of being on the other side of the jingle mystic stuff right. They've come back after the SULEJMANI attack suddenly like instantaneously like nothing ever happened. They've gone straight back. The two thousand and two thousand three anyone. WHO's against them in love with terrorists Chris in League with Iran? There were ton of these incidents incidents this week. You know the Doug Collins said the Democrats are in love with terrorists I did say Sumani honey was handsome. So did further that you're crushing. Little crashing is crashed crashed. Lindsey Graham saying that Mike Lee he was enabling the enemy. Trump tweeted out a picture of Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer in Iranian garb or. He Re tweeted a picture. There's just a lot of this insanity and and this is happening at exactly the same time. Nancy Pelosi is still doing this stuff like the CNN. A story this week. Basically saying that Pelosi was musing. That Mitch McConnell has some kind of connection to Russian so it's just really annoying that this is now going to become sort of standard fare Partisan politics and the Republicans. You would think I guess I wouldn't. Why would you think that? But the but after three years of bitching and moaning about this you would think they would stop right. I mean you would think that they would stop. You would hope maybe that they would. Actually I think at the you know what's cool about. Is that Tulsi Gabbard. Who is an very anti war and anti regime change war although according to joy and read I shouldn't even say that word because that's a Russian term regime change? Yeah so vitale. Joyon wake me up. But it's cool because she is really going after trump and going after this ask and which is nice for all the people who kind of like an you've seen this and encountered this on other people who call her like trump enabler or a closet trump accolade accolate. Or you know. She's she's carrying out the wishes of trump by the way. I don't know if you saw this but now I guess Trump is saying it doesn't really matter if someone posed an imminent threat which is kind of amazing right. Yeah well horns part of it is that. I don't think he understands why you have to call it an imminent threat right because because it's sort of illegal if you don't our legal defenses constructed on the idea that that we do these things when when we commit military acts of aggression that aren't within the the framework of a UN Security Council resolution that we can do that if it has were defending of imminent attacks defense on this US grand scale. Yeah so it has to be that right and he Olympic. He understands that they have to. Maybe he doesn't care that anyway. That's I I don't know how you feel about that but I just entire thing annoying. I'm very happy about it. Matt the killing I'm happy about the downing of the airline I'm happy about the Republicans ends you know. No no terrible for Damn Cirque We have a story. That's kind of like DEM's most stem suck but there's some good dem's here and there so what we have is AFC announced she Launched a pack a new pack to help insurgent left wing candidates. That's and that's basically in response to the revelations that the D triple C is trying to boycott vendors who who work with primary challenger. She tweeted I give quite a bit fellow. Dem's we fundraise over three hundred thousand for others more than my dues with over fifty percent going to swing states swing seats. The D triple. C made clear that they will blacklist any or accept help progressive candidates. Like me I can choose not to fund that kind of exclusion totally fair. I think my opinion. Well the interesting thing about this is that it just makes more overt this schism. That's being driven between rank bullock. AFC Sanders News and the traditional Democrats. I mean that it's just blown wide open last week or so and when money starts getting involved That's that's when these these splits become formal formal right and I think this is this last period before I win New Hampshire before this primary contest really gets rolling is. It's going to end up being a historic moment in the history of this party. I think because because of stuff like this this is just crazy. And the D. Triple A.. You know we saw them start to do this a couple of years ago when they when they were really leaning heavily into discouraging certain kinds of candidates encouraging others and and now is going to be essentially a formality that they're going to be two different fundraising in a way. I mean. So this is a dem suck and a couple of them are good at not as Institutionalized Roy not as part of the machine route I mean it's just desert. These were divided in suck right. Yeah depend more. Yeah the establishment one suck establishment. Dem Suck It's it's called the courage to change pack already career. Yeah so that's good. Thank you for that bravery right. I mean it's totally isn't it. It's only fair game. Because they have a blacklist. You can't and you. You can't really do what they're doing and expect people just take it. I guess you can't expect them. Take it because historically they have this. AFC and I guess guess you can say the other members of the squad. They have enormous fundraising power. They have enormous social media power. They wouldn't have been able to do something like this right for four years ago. Now the way the media started structured the they have their own ability to raise money similar to what you know sanders showing in this campaign the ability to raise not just significant amount of money. But more than anybody else Chewing the traditional methods. It's just that changes the whole dynamic because you wouldn't have been able to because they were dependent on upon the the money right from the committee before now. That's what Nancy say. Like she has her tweets. She has her public public over for tweets or whatever all these people have their public whatever and their twitter world but they don't have any following therefore therefore people and that's how many votes they got. This is about the squad. Yes this claiming reported last year in the context of the whole go back thing hanging remember correctly For those right before trump really took his cue from that but this came out remember. There was a whole series of stories that came out about Democratic officials complaining about whether she wants to wants to be a twitter celebrity or a member of the party. Right in a jealous God for one on the left who does what trump does basically basically responsibly in other words not what trump does as in like tweeting at four am about invading bombing countries. But I mean God forbid we have personalities on the left that would be she is doing with trump. So she's bypassing the party structure and even the press I've said before she's like a good trump. Incredibly Savvy knows how to troll troll. The enemy drives them crazy And it's pretty immune to Institutional pressure and media attempted media criticism. Right right remember. They released video of her dancing when she was in college. And she just looked extremely appealing or they were complaining about her. She wore a nice suit therefore how could she really be a socialist. I mean this stuff is just stupid it actually makes her look better now. And and don't don't be fooled by that quote from from Nancy Pelosi like she understands percents exactly like responding to. She understands how important that is so now. Now the next step of this is let's start using mcvay dueling. Yeah let's see if you're going to beach behavior like this. We're just going to do our own thing but it's going to be a significant step for the. Isn't that weird. It's just Scorpions suitcases again. penny the story. This this week is that guy in Sri Lanka got arrested trying to carry two hundred scorpions out of the country back to China. Is that like a repatriation thing. A nationalist movement he was smuggling Scorpions. I guess that's a job you can come on Bryce a lot more important problems problems in Sri Lanka and they had excellent pictures of the hall. Were they going to live. How big are Scorpions opinions? They look like pretty decent. He's GonNa they are poor state. Look scary it's funny. You say that despite the fact that they can pierce you and sting you. They look scared Gary surprisingly it looks scary. And as a whole bunch of just like what are those Medicaid one of the things that was my question about are they scorpion cases. Can you go to a store and we should turn that into a new phrase for anything that looks like that. It's basically it's a plastic case with dividers the dividers. It kind of looks like you may not know this but if you go into jewel jewelry beating store like there used to be a lot of these things that you go in. It's kind of fun. You take your beads and then you can make them in the store they would you take them and things like that. Do Scorpion beating is actually. They've probably could make a lot of stuff out of their shells. I'm all torn corner of this. You know I like animals. I don't like animal cruelty and you know what I I'm not torn over this. It's just hard. It's not like Koala level or like really cute. I animal sound like a piglet a puppy dog that somebody has a job. There's a person lobsters the do look like lobsters anyway. So that is weird. Somebody has a weird job. So what happened to him doing now. I don't know he's probably being put to death right. I mean it's Sri Lanka by Scorpion. Right yeah I always thought that would be great idea by the way that drunkenly discussing college. Each state used an indigenous animal executes indigenous rights. Right right yeah exactly so in Maine you'd have somebody rams by Mousse or something like that. Where do lobsters reside New England could mean they'd have to battle title the figure out? I wonder who wins between the lobster battle to enough lobsters silly quickly. What do we have for? Isn't that terrible. Isn't that terrible it's a landlord pushed to death in Queens Queens landlord. Trying to collect two hundred dollars. Background was allegedly shoved down the front steps by by a deadbeat tenant. This is the daily news describing a deadly pushed con surveillance video. Police and the victims families said Monday. Edgar Moncayo seventy. It seems standing outside the Corona House. Sunday afternoon talking with his wife on the phone and trying to gain access to the building when his tenant twenty two year old. Alex Garcia says open front door. Call the police. The landlord says House wife and Spanish as he tries to storm the door. According to the doorbell video footage obtained by the daily news moments later. Garces this is upper. Body appears in the video frame as forcefully leans out the door and shoves the elderly man off the stoop sending Mocha flying backwards and smashing onto the pavement at the foot of the entry staffed. So what's the this is just a terrible thing that happens on camera suffered a traumatic brain injury. Medic took him to Elmer's hospital where he died. She's so this is terrible wrote now. It's also terrible P. R. for the housing rates intents rights community. This landlord seems like a decent guy. I just trying to collect some money but I don't want this to color the way that people see housing rights activists not all pushing to death outside the rate from shoot. Yeah I just WanNa make sure that. That's clear okay. So it's personal. Isn't that terrible. And then it could be a political. Isn't that terrible. If we let that I'm a I'm afraid the landlord lobby the real estate lobby. which is very powerful? is going to try to weaponized that. Yeah this is terrible I mean can you imagine I feel so bad for the guy and his family I don't think the guy knew he was going to push him to his death by now.

"Welcome to useful welcome d-fs hits I'm Katie Helper. And that is until you do that right. A lot of stuff going on in the last twenty four thirty six hours although by the time you yes it'll be like seventy two hours. We'll make it so good that you won't mind it'll just flow. It'll go back in time when you're watching the whole all space time continuum thing. We'll be violated a doctor who exactly so we have a great show talking to a friend of show Glenn Greenwald G she. He demanded to be on the cut that we don't want to. We don't WanNA blow up his spot but I think he'd be comfortable with that sharing that mission to cut it out and it's going to be very very interesting thing in animated conversation and a lot of stuff this week involving the campaign just a lot of crazy messaging the looniness happening on the eve of the debate eight this week so we'll get to all that we should start off as we always do at the top of the show only four Republicans. Democrats psych isn't that we're isn't that terrible lots of stuff on all sides so it's Republicans this week. So Republicans suck. I think it's just the sort of General Jingoism McCarthyism thing that the Republicans have no lean into after three years of complaining about the Russia. Thing right after three years of being on the other side of the jingle mystic stuff right. They've come back after the SULEJMANI attack suddenly like instantaneously like nothing ever happened. They've gone straight back. The two thousand and two thousand three anyone. WHO's against them in love with terrorists Chris in League with Iran? There were ton of these incidents incidents this week. You know the Doug Collins said the Democrats are in love with terrorists I did say Sumani honey was handsome. So did further that you're crushing. Little crashing is crashed crashed. Lindsey Graham saying that Mike Lee he was enabling the enemy. Trump tweeted out a picture of Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer in Iranian garb or. He Re tweeted a picture. There's just a lot of this insanity and and this is happening at exactly the same time. Nancy Pelosi is still doing this stuff like the CNN. A story this week. Basically saying that Pelosi was musing. That Mitch McConnell has some kind of connection to Russian so it's just really annoying that this is now going to become sort of standard fare Partisan politics and the Republicans. You would think I guess I wouldn't. Why would you think that? But the but after three years of bitching and moaning about this you would think they would stop right. I mean you would think that they would stop. You would hope maybe that they would. Actually I think at the you know what's cool about. Is that Tulsi Gabbard. Who is an very anti war and anti regime change war although according to joy and read I shouldn't even say that word because that's a Russian term regime change? Yeah so vitale. Joyon wake me up. But it's cool because she is really going after trump and going after this ask and which is nice for all the people who kind of like an you've seen this and encountered this on other people who call her like trump enabler or a closet trump accolade accolate. Or you know. She's she's carrying out the wishes of trump by the way. I don't know if you saw this but now I guess Trump is saying it doesn't really matter if someone posed an imminent threat which is kind of amazing right. Yeah well horns part of it is that. I don't think he understands why you have to call it an imminent threat right because because it's sort of illegal if you don't our legal defenses constructed on the idea that that we do these things when when we commit military acts of aggression that aren't within the the framework of a UN Security Council resolution that we can do that if it has were defending of imminent attacks defense on this US grand scale. Yeah so it has to be that right and he Olympic. He understands that they have to. Maybe he doesn't care that anyway. That's I I don't know how you feel about that but I just entire thing annoying. I'm very happy about it. Matt the killing I'm happy about the downing of the airline I'm happy about the Republicans ends you know. No no terrible for Damn Cirque We have a story. That's kind of like DEM's most stem suck but there's some good dem's here and there so what we have is AFC announced she Launched a pack a new pack to help insurgent left wing candidates. That's and that's basically in response to the revelations that the D triple C is trying to boycott vendors who who work with primary challenger. She tweeted I give quite a bit fellow. Dem's we fundraise over three hundred thousand for others more than my dues with over fifty percent going to swing states swing seats. The D triple. C made clear that they will blacklist any or accept help progressive candidates. Like me I can choose not to fund that kind of exclusion totally fair. I think my opinion. Well the interesting thing about this is that it just makes more overt this schism. That's being driven between rank bullock. AFC Sanders News and the traditional Democrats. I mean that it's just blown wide open last week or so and when money starts getting involved That's that's when these these splits become formal formal right and I think this is this last period before I win New Hampshire before this primary contest really gets rolling is. It's going to end up being a historic moment in the history of this party. I think because because of stuff like this this is just crazy. And the D. Triple A.. You know we saw them start to do this a couple of years ago when they when they were really leaning heavily into discouraging certain kinds of candidates encouraging others and and now is going to be essentially a formality that they're going to be two different fundraising in a way. I mean. So this is a dem suck and a couple of them are good at not as Institutionalized Roy not as part of the machine route I mean it's just desert. These were divided in suck right. Yeah depend more. Yeah the establishment one suck establishment. Dem Suck It's it's called the courage to change pack already career. Yeah so that's good. Thank you for that bravery right. I mean it's totally isn't it. It's only fair game. Because they have a blacklist. You can't and you. You can't really do what they're doing and expect people just take it. I guess you can't expect them. Take it because historically they have this. AFC and I guess guess you can say the other members of the squad. They have enormous fundraising power. They have enormous social media power. They wouldn't have been able to do something like this right for four years ago. Now the way the media started structured the they have their own ability to raise money similar to what you know sanders showing in this campaign the ability to raise not just significant amount of money. But more than anybody else Chewing the traditional methods. It's just that changes the whole dynamic because you wouldn't have been able to because they were dependent on upon the the money right from the committee before now. That's what Nancy say. Like she has her tweets. She has her public public over for tweets or whatever all these people have their public whatever and their twitter world but they don't have any following therefore therefore people and that's how many votes they got. This is about the squad. Yes this claiming reported last year in the context of the whole go back thing hanging remember correctly For those right before trump really took his cue from that but this came out remember. There was a whole series of stories that came out about Democratic officials complaining about whether she wants to wants to be a twitter celebrity or a member of the party. Right in a jealous God for one on the left who does what trump does basically basically responsibly in other words not what trump does as in like tweeting at four am about invading bombing countries. But I mean God forbid we have personalities on the left that would be she is doing with trump. So she's bypassing the party structure and even the press I've said before she's like a good trump. Incredibly Savvy knows how to troll troll. The enemy drives them crazy And it's pretty immune to Institutional pressure and media attempted media criticism. Right right remember. They released video of her dancing when she was in college. And she just looked extremely appealing or they were complaining about her. She wore a nice suit therefore how could she really be a socialist. I mean this stuff is just stupid it actually makes her look better now. And and don't don't be fooled by that quote from from Nancy Pelosi like she understands percents exactly like responding to. She understands how important that is so now. Now the next step of this is let's start using mcvay dueling. Yeah let's see if you're going to beach behavior like this. We're just going to do our own thing but it's going to be a significant step for the. Isn't that weird. It's just Scorpions suitcases again. penny the story. This this week is that guy in Sri Lanka got arrested trying to carry two hundred scorpions out of the country back to China. Is that like a repatriation thing. A nationalist movement he was smuggling Scorpions. I guess that's a job you can come on Bryce a lot more important problems problems in Sri Lanka and they had excellent pictures of the hall. Were they going to live. How big are Scorpions opinions? They look like pretty decent. He's GonNa they are poor state. Look scary it's funny. You say that despite the fact that they can pierce you and sting you. They look scared Gary surprisingly it looks scary. And as a whole bunch of just like what are those Medicaid one of the things that was my question about are they scorpion cases. Can you go to a store and we should turn that into a new phrase for anything that looks like that. It's basically it's a plastic case with dividers the dividers. It kind of looks like you may not know this but if you go into jewel jewelry beating store like there used to be a lot of these things that you go in. It's kind of fun. You take your beads and then you can make them in the store they would you take them and things like that. Do Scorpion beating is actually. They've probably could make a lot of stuff out of their shells. I'm all torn corner of this. You know I like animals. I don't like animal cruelty and you know what I I'm not torn over this. It's just hard. It's not like Koala level or like really cute. I animal sound like a piglet a puppy dog that somebody has a job. There's a person lobsters the do look like lobsters anyway. So that is weird. Somebody has a weird job. So what happened to him doing now. I don't know he's probably being put to death right. I mean it's Sri Lanka by Scorpion. Right yeah I always thought that would be great idea by the way that drunkenly discussing college. Each state used an indigenous animal executes indigenous rights. Right right yeah exactly so in Maine you'd have somebody rams by Mousse or something like that. Where do lobsters reside New England could mean they'd have to battle title the figure out? I wonder who wins between the lobster battle to enough lobsters silly quickly. What do we have for? Isn't that terrible. Isn't that terrible it's a landlord pushed to death in Queens Queens landlord. Trying to collect two hundred dollars. Background was allegedly shoved down the front steps by by a deadbeat tenant. This is the daily news describing a deadly pushed con surveillance video..

"glenn greenwald" Discussed on Monocle 24: Midori House

"Maybe things I think she feels as a woman of maybe the roughly the same age as her when she didn't get that kind of turns a bit bitter and then there's you know a further development in the piece where she says. Oh maybe it's not Madonna's job to do these things for me and it's like well really like the Ellsworth this out at the beginning. The profile is not a place for you to work out your particular anxieties and use the stars and Mirror. I think that's one of the things that really gets. That's wrong also as well. Madonna said that she was just but I think the the writer showed. I do know her weird disdain for youth as well right. In the beginning of the peace she sees Madonna playing awards ceremony and she surrounded by much younger pop stars and she said scenario about the Moan about young pop fans saying that you know. There's no way that they really recognize what's here in their wake. But this generation of young pop fans are probably more informed than anybody. WHO's before them because they go to all of their fingertips and Phantom is predicated on deep forensic knowledge of things? Another problem perhaps was the lack of conversation fissionable music especially with female singers. Who see there's a lot of the time you know? Let's concentrate on the clothing or up with the age or anything else so you beloved to read like a long peaceable Edwin only about music itself but there's been some good examples. I think there's one that you particularly like about Mariah Carey wasn't on pitchfork. It was it was a pitch from us this year. And it's just a Q.. And A. It's not a profile Madonna Mariah Carey is somebody who Sort of a similar way to Madonna has been l'ambassade as a diva for her career. and not taken seriously really and you know she has a public reputation. It's that she asks for a bowl of EMINEM's little yellow ones taken out and like a room full of white cats and all these things probably aren't true then is into the journalist. Go Alex Frank. He sits down with her and he takes seriously as a songwriter producer. I didn't even know that she produced music. which is my bad? Never finding that out but the cultural image of Mariah where I carry loomed so large that you don't think of other. It's not like the first thing that comes to mind with the first thing you talked about her and they have a really rich conversation about songwriting and process and then through going in through the angle he also gets lots of personal stuff out of her as well because I think the impression that she feels like she's being taken seriously by this person who knows everything about her and so she can have like a conversation on a good level with them often say I just want to talk about the music and that is boring because nobody wants to hear you talk into sound on sound magazine. Nobody wants to hear about particularly how you made a song because it's alienating because most people can't do that to hear Madonna talk about like the craft and songwriting in that way in this specific decisions that she makes. I think that would be really interesting. We're discussing the Mariah Carey article. Is there any other iconic celebrity profiles that you've read throughout your lifetime could even something recent that you'd be able to recommend and so you know what that's how we do it. God this so many of them I mean I feel like Taffy. EICHNER is the queen of them at the moment like the one that she wrote Gwyneth Paltrow and her wellness empire deep last year. It was incredible. Despite were saying about the Madonna warm you know one of the bad things about is. The writer is using Madonna to work. Load of hurry and anxieties to an extent Tuffy does this Goethe PCs. She writes about the white coat of wellness and why women reaching towards it. I thought that wellness was just snake oil but she writes women have been disbelieved about the experiences of their own bodies for so long as anyone that they turned to alternative medicine and she was writes about her own personal feelings about how she can't live up to this kind of image and is an amazing piece. It must is be ten thousand words. But it's a real right there so much great stuff going on you also write provis time-to-time or you. I mean you talk about poachers. What was your experience hearings? We've a celebrity. How was the PR machine? Used as is it. Is it harder to write a nice profile without so much interference. American journalism gets much better access than can you do in the UK in America. You know I mean if you're writing for one of the top tier publications like G. Q.. Than you times. You're going to be able to demand two or three meetings with somebody and actually have them be substantive meaningful. Interactions where you go to the house. Will you do something with them. So it feels very personal. Very tailored in Nikkei is incredibly hard to get that because most of the publications nations are happy with an hour after a photo shoot manages and bands artists are not keen to provide more than that. I had a couple of longer interactions with people. I'd along piece about Robin last year where I interview Termini Beatha when she was there. Dj and then went to Stockholm. And I saw her working on the production of our show and I interviewed her again there so that was a bit more immersive but probably still. I think these folks have for three hours which that's probably a quarter of what somebody like taffy spend with somebody. Even though it was a relatively short period of time you just get so much more out of somebody when you building up trust with them in a one on one encounter and then you meet them again you have like a level of me with a comparable to actually talk to you and go that deep run and things. Can you imagine the rubbings quite a nice person to to deal with as you would be contested because a fan. I'm happy that was Laura's nape star talking to me about what makes a good celebrity profile in final in the show. We'll keep things in house. I welcome monocle editor Andrew Token Studio to tell us all about the latest quality of life issue when Monaco reveals the most livable cities gas one. This year is interesting thing. Since we've been running monocle some thirteen years still is for me. You kind of one. The most important issues of the year. I think because actually when you go back to year one of Monaco local when it came out it was kind of a breakthrough moment for the company that this was. The magazine really caught people's attention. And we've repeated the survey we've done in the magazine since you every single year. And it's a survey of the top twenty five cities to live in the world and that's evolved over time and we've added new metrics exmouth trying to expand the number of cities the come into the mix. But it's always been quite exciting to see this come out. The research is interesting and it also forces you to think about something very important for us here monocle how you make a great city and how you make a great place to live. Did you add any new metrics for this year's Yes so this year they look Age Mix of cities you know places the more vibrant More interesting for business for our lives lives from hold and so even though I'm no youngster yourself. We educate weighted towards places that had kind of good university populations. The had good opportunities is for younger people as well. And then we've we've kind of kept looking at this th the way that you can set up a business and run a business and the night time economy and and freedom to do things and at a fair attitude here and And trying to make it so that is not only the most pressed perfect perfect cities that kind of get to the top of the rankings. Although they tend to still anyway I think you had a Lotta saying this covert didn't you. There's a bearded man Singh Urban Est.. Do that take a very nice illustrated cover have the show called the and I like the cut line of actually it was tyler who came down in the end we were took cover lines. And he'll do urbanistic vetter but it's a great sunny summer cover I. It's interesting when you design this cover because it Sticks with people for two months w and you want something that when you sat on newsstand even for us that you feel. It remains fresh across the summer who've had a miserable weather here in London but it's a bit of beacon of bright bright yellow when you say on the Nissan but is not only You know a Monocle monocle magazine we also have the Monaco drinking dining directory coming soon with again. I love the covers quite funny in a way. Yes I go into trouble suggesting that. Maybe the the gentleman on the cover looks like fashion. Jamie waters. He does Jamie points out the cartoon version of himself as a rather large knows and he also disputed that he would eat. The the cartoon gentleman is eating Spaghetti. And he's I would need that many carbs. I think. I'm not sure what she was more offended about the big nose or the cops but anyway we've been some years now being doing the forecast that comes out at the end of the year which looks at the year and more ahead. Then we've had the the world of travel covered in the escapist and now about a year ago we added the drinking and dining directories as the second outing for this magazine and it does what it says on the cover. It comes out once a year and it's a deep dive into the world of food and drink now for for us at Monaco. We've always had a kind of interesting taking this as the world of molecular cooking rose up and kind of his dissipated again now now as food trends became a little bit more extreme. We found comfortable place for us to talk about food that was well cooked enjoyable amazing but there was also the palm of your social life of your work life near the in many ways. The Best Restaurant is a place where you feel comfortable saying they know your name you can fit we. We don't always want the most extraordinary food. We won't food that matches temperament our life and the way that we live so many of the things covered in the magazine not the most expensive not the most extreme by any measure but are really about kind of food and drink culture again often based around cities or about doing doing things simpler good ingredients people going back to the land people. One instance hair growing wine around Vienna say the city not of Vienna is actually quite a big producer of wine of great wines and they have this tradition of these moving yards which are allowed to kind of open up and serve their own wine. Indirect you at the vineyard dipped into that culture as well. I must point out. This was edited by my colleague. Josh Senate and I'm very happy to be knocked announced down the Mazda. He's done an extraordinary job he he's passionate about the subject and when you have a magazine that comes out once a year you can either leave off the last minute unlike him. He's really plotted this out of the thinking about all the story so when it came in I think everybody was okay. This is real passion. Project Looks Amazing and Andrew Gordon then yet apparently the summer week is back when okay so we. We have a few more weeks before we dive right back. In but Yeah the summer series as of newspapers will be coming back another four papers and the the fourth those as last year will be fashion preview for the upcoming season and the team. We'll be kind of worrying away on those in between we have The monocle conference next week in Madrid. We have some other kind of one off projects that were beginning to investigate gate and the books and of course radio so yes as you said at the beginning of this interview has plenty to do here at Monaco. Thanks Andrew.

"glenn greenwald" Discussed on Monocle 24: Midori House

"In this special edition of Monaco's House view. We look back at some of the best episodes on the stack on this episode. We speak take to journalist and author Glenn Greenwald on the biggest scoop of the year in Brazil. Plus Laura's naps celebrity profiles and Monaco's editor Andrew attack gives us a preview of what's to come in the summer For Housing London. This is the stack thirty minutes of print industry analysis and I am was to share still to come on the show. Laura's naps tell us about the appeal of celebrity profile in magazines or newspapers. Some say the genre is dying. But he true and Monaco's editor Andrew took previews Our latest quality of life issue plus some exciting similar plans for Monaco but we started showing Brazil where journalist author Glenn Greenwald Leaves Greenwald's best so for his reports revealing the US and British global surveillance programs. The famous SNOWDEN FILES DIS- time the Brazilian version of his website. The intercept zapped hasn't viewed the biggest scoop of the year in Brazil detailing. How the operation carwash could have been politically motivated? He tells me more about the case. And how the Brazilian media reported Glenn Greenwald. What a pleasure to have you here? Monocle twenty four no showed the stack but first question to you. Glenn I mean how does it feel you have basically basically the biggest scoop of the year in Brazil. Tell us more. About how long have you been working on this story. Well we obviously recognize when we got the archive that that it was going to be incredibly significant not just because of the size of the archive but because there has been almost no reporting that has been done about the work of judge. Sergio Morrow who has overseen the imprisonment of so many powerful people including former president Lula the Silva at the time when he was leading the presidential race and the team of prosecutors. Who have prosecuted all these people? There's been a lot of leaks that have come from them that the media has uncritically reported in Brazil. But there's been almost no reporting about them or what they've been doing so that was what was so exciting about this archive archive is it was the first look into what they have been doing. And and it was given the size of it and the complexity of it and obviously took you know many weeks express to authenticated and to figure out what it had and then to start to be able to put together the reporting and is interesting lender when the story came out. I've noticed perhaps I might be wrong. The mainstream media in Brazil's bit reluctant to covert historic suddenly became unavoidable. And even you know the more conservative ones. They had to report. Because you know even says you're more now his he was in a in the Senate he had to speak about his actions. But what did you think about the media reaction in Brazil about your story Wolf. I've been a critic of the large Brazilian media for quite a long time. And that's a big reason why we formed the intercept Brazil because we felt like there was a space to do genuinely independent and adversarial reporting. There's a very small number of large media outlets in Brazil all controlled by a handful of very rich industrialized families. Who have generally the same political agenda? And they have been almost entirely uncritical in critical Alaba job. Do and have Sergio Mora. They have done nothing but revere him and turn them into a hero with maybe one exception which is volume of some followed the largest newspaper in Brazil. It's been a bit more critical and a bit more distant but otherwise it's been unanimity and so I think the media reaction was going to be hostile or was was he being trained berry and ignore the story. Not just because they're so protective of now Justice Minister Sergio Mora but also because in general they feel very hostile toward or competitive with independent media. Because they've had a monopoly for so long on discourse in Brazil but after say like I actually found the reaction Shen surprising almost every major media out with with one major exception which is Globo covered the material pretty fairly in pretty substantively. Camin one big centre-right magazine. That has applauded. Sergio moral and lobby for five years came out with an editorial almost immediately saying these revelations nations are so grave that Sergio Morales should resign. As the Justice Minister and head of the prosecutorial task force should be fired Globo by contrast which unfortunately remains the dominant media. Let they tried for about a week. Ignoring the substance of the revelations and tried to talk about it only as a story about criminal L. Hacking and someone's stealing documents but they became so isolated and how they were talking about the story and the story became so big even Sergio Amoros former supporters. You're saying that what he had done was obviously unethical. Even Globo now has been forced to cover the content of the story albeit no way that's always designed to minimize the harm to minister moral. And Glenn will you know. I know they're still morphing that you guys have to report and release to the public. Will there be any sort of of contribution we've with some of these media that you've mentioned like newspapers such as fully some Paolo. Yeah I mean I'm trying to use the same strategy that they used when they reported on this note and archive which is rather than just keeping it for myself or even just only working with the Guardian. I went around the world in partnered with the largest media outlets in order in in part to make sure the story got as much exposure and impact as it deserved but also because the more reporters you involve the more expertise you bring in. So if I was reporting about and as ice buying in France or in partnership with Spain or Italy or India or Japan I worked with reporters those countries in order to just make sure that there was more expertise not so absolutely already starting our work with other major media outlets here in Brazil to make sure given the size and complexity the archive that it gets is to the public as quickly as possible and also there are just a lot of good reporters at these media outlets bubble a lot of knowledge about the car wash investigation. That will help the reporting winging so. Yeah we're definitely planning on working partnership with other media outlets Glenn one kind of serious question when it comes to Brazil as well how does he feel when it comes to journalist analyst intimidation there because I know there's quite a lot of problems and I know some of the reporters of the intercept even getting some death threats. I mean is it quite scary as it seems. Yeah I mean it's something that we obviously knew is going to happen. I mean we have a president of the country Bolsonaro who doesn't doesn't hide the fact that he admires and believes in the military dictatorship that ruled the country from nineteen sixty four until essentially in nineteen eighty nine when it re democratized. He's been very threatening to media outlets. Political violence is a very real threat in Brazil. The fact that my husband it is a member of the Federal Congress a left wing party and one of our best friends he served on the city council with him was brutally assassinated. A year ago is still on everybody's mind and just yesterday when Sergio Mora went before the Senate you had numerous senators including gyro. Ball's our son. Flavio WHO's a senator talking openly the worst judge Moore about whether we ought to be prosecuted and imprisoned for doing the reporting so the risks of all legal and physical. But they're also ones that we were prepared cared for and we're expecting and took the necessary precautions that we felt like we could take in order to minimize the risk. But you know they're journalistic cover wars. They're journalists who work with no visibility. Journalism can be a very dangerous profession. And if you're not willing to take risks is probably not a profession and you should go into and Glen just sort of curiosity for those who don't know the Brazilian presence of the intercept. When was the Brazilian version of the website? Found actually and is he doing well. How are you proud that you definitely stain there with the website assigned? Yeah what happened was during the 2016 debate over whether to impeach then President Dilma Rousseff was elected twice as part of Luas Workers Party. You know that was one of the things that I started noticing was that this incredibly momentous thing to do to impeach a president who had been twice elected it did and there was almost no dissent in the Brazilian media at the time the Big Brazilian media the big outlets were almost completely unified behind impeaching her and I started writing articles for the intercept before the intercept Brazil existed and we started translating them into Portuguese and it found a huge audience. I mean they were some of the most read articles in the history of the intercept and we realize that there was a demand. You know a niche for this kind of reporting that we do at the intercept in the US in Brazil L. and decided to kind of ride that wave in created the intercept Brazil. And since. Then we've built you know a team of I think we now have fifteen to eighteen gene Yang really aggressive fearless incredibly professional reporters and editors all of whom are Brazilian. Who have been doing amazing work in in a lot of different cases but obviously this particular reporting is a whole new level of of of risk in and of journalistic complexity and the work that they've been doing has been magnificent? I mean obviously we've committed no errors. We've been nothing retracted. No one claims we've made any errors urge it's been top notch From largely young Brazilian reporters challenging the most powerful people in the country and to me that's journalism is about. That's it's fascinating land and I very much look forward to see. What are you guys going to report next? That was journalist and author. Glenn Greenwald there speaking to me and everyone loves a good celebrity profile. When written by inexperienced journalists it can be fun and revealing about the lives of our favorite artists but the genre is changing and celebrities are becoming more reluctant to do those in depth profiles? I I spoke to music writer and deputy music editor for The Guardian Laura's naps who tells me more what makes a good celebrity profile. It's interesting because on one hand they seem to be dying but on the other hand the ones that exist kind of better than ever fewer and fewer of the top celebrities doing them like Frank Ocean. Just he's on the cover of days and confused right now but it's not a profile. He's answering and questions put to him by his fellow celebrities and is Vapid is really Vapid I had salons on the cover recently and there was a profile but it was written by one of her friends. And it like it was oh interesting or interrogative to say hasn't sat for into you I think since two thousand eleven Taylor Swift hasn't sat for one since nineteen thousand nine hundred reputation or there was a tiny anyone recently but it was only small the Big Star in the motor shunning interviews because you know with social media and everything they can maintain complete control over their personas. But then at the same time I feel like. There's there's been a huge resurgence of them in almost like a cult fandom around the people who are writing them if you look at the New York Times people like Taffy BRADESCO ackner thinks. He's made a complete new art form of it. Katie Weaver. I think because really offended that format as well. There are so many great people. They're doing Amanda Hess. And if you look around other publications as well there's star names coming through so doesn't appetite for firm from readers if not necessarily from the world's greatest stars because I agree with you the celebrity celebrity. I'm not saying all the time. Most of the time is quite vapid. It's quite you you don't get anything new. If he's very safe if used that they are not touching in the things that actually the fans would like to know. Yeah exactly and I think one of the reasons that the celebrities are really scared out of these kind of interviews is because the another gospel things they don't want to have to talk about a good profile is about dating gossip it's about like actually defining the person who's at the heart of all of this which I think is true for everybody not just celebrities quite often. It's the people around. You can see better than yourself you know. It's very difficult to solve to find but somebody might be able to pick up on those qualities. He's in spending time with the and one of the reasons why I decided to choose the topic for this week's tack Madonna's profile and the New York Times. I mean if she enjoyed the pictures of her fringe area. But I don't think she was a big fan of the profile. She even wrote on social media like I absolutely hated. I wouldn't even five minutes of my time. Compared spending time without journalists being right I can use that because I've been raped and it was like those quite extreme. 'cause I understand you know Madonna criticize ageism in in reports and as a fan. I do agree view of that. What do you what did you think about profiling particular? I mean on one hand. She had been aware that it was going to be about her age because the photos which are amazing he said you know massive black and white pictures of Madonna in her heyday with slashes through them and then current Madonna peeping through them so she had to be aware that thought jokes position was going to be there but I did agree with her. I didn't think it was a very good piece. Or you know I I think one of the pitfalls that sometime seem profile writing is the person going into it they have. Expectations are around the star and they also need the star to represent the image of the star to them and so the writer in this piece you know. She clearly wanted to go in and talk to Madonna about aging menopause..
