Snap! Venus fly trap fans ask South Carolina to honor plant
"Conservationists are pushing for the Venus flytrap to be South Carolina's official carnivorous plant. The Venus flytrap would join other official items such as the state bird, the Carolina wren, state opera, porgy and bass, and the state snack boiled peanuts, and all South Carolina has about 5 dozen official state things. They're already honored plants, including the official fruit, the peach, supporters say the recitation is about protecting and increasing awareness of an interesting species found only in one spot on the globe, the upper part of the South Carolina coast, and a small sliver of southeast North Carolina.

Sen. Bill Hagerty: Video Released of Russian Jet-U.S. Drone Collision
"This video coming out, have you had a chance to look at the video footage of the jet? Yes, I have. What was your reaction to that? In the first instance, it speaks volumes about the incompetent competency in the poor training of the Russian military. We are allowed to operate. We do operate in international airspace and we should be able to do that unfettered and what we saw here was entirely unacceptable. When I was ambassador to Japan, we constantly ran freedom of navigation operations through the South China Sea and that area we were constantly encountering Russia and Chinese fighter jets. We know how to handle this. But again, this was extremely unprofessional. These were international waters, Russia had no right to do what they did. And this is something that I think it's just extremely unfortunate that we're in a position like this where this type of insect could actually result in an escalation if it's not properly handled. The real problem though is that we've allowed this to occur. I mean, we've decided to wage war on domestic energy here that's driven up energy prices around the world. Vladimir Putin is benefited from this dramatically. You know how high oil prices have gotten. And that's funding all of this maligned behavior by the Russians because we're allowing this to happen. The best way to stop this is to start producing American energy again, lower the cost of energy all around the globe and take Vladimir Putin out of business.

World marks Women's Day but abuses, inequality still rampant
"There are demonstrations rallies and events around the globe today to mark international women's day. It's a day established to celebrate and demand equality for half the planet's population, but it's a long road ahead for countries such as Afghanistan, which has become the most repressive for women and girls since the Taliban take over in 2021. Hafiza is a former Kabul university law student. The worst situation is when your dreams are shuttered, and you are punished for being a woman. Islam had not banned women from their right to education. Our beloved prophet's wife was a businesswoman, while she was the wife of our beloved prophet. But we are not even allowed to study and get educated. 18 year old shahida was in the tenth grade when the Taliban took over, now she works in a yarn factory. Women don't have any rights in Afghanistan. Schools are closed, educational centers are closed, and all other options for women are closed. We just demand from the government to reopen schools and educational centers for us, and give us our rights. But there have been major advances. In Spain, the country on Tuesday passed a law requiring that women make up at least 40% of boards of directors for larger companies, the same will apply to Spain's cabinet, on Monday, United Nations secretary general Antonio Guterres noted that women's rights are being abused, threatened and violated around the world, and gender equality won't be achieved for 300 years on the current track.

Rep. Debbie Lesko Weighs In on Fauci Cover-Up Shocker
"Me now, a woman on that congressional subcommittee that's investigating the origins of COVID. We have representative Debbie lesko, Republican from Arizona. Good to have you here. Welcome to the program. Thanks for having me. It's exciting. It's very important information. We need to get to the bottom of the truth. Well, we do. And so many people don't want to still, we just played a clip of Anthony Fauci speaking with The Boston Globe last week saying, look, we may never know the answer to which I'm like, well, yeah, you're not going to know the answer if you don't bother to do the investigation. Why is it that so many people were so quick, including Doctor Fauci to totally dismiss the idea that maybe it might have come from the Wuhan lab? You know, I don't know for sure. I can guess. I can make an educated guess. I think that Anthony Fauci and the NIH director at the time Francis Collins were concerned that the American people would find out that U.S. taxpayer dollars were being used to fund eco health alliance which in turn funded the Wuhan lab and there to this day denying that the grand funding was used for coronavirus research, even though other scientists believe that it is.

Mollie Hemingway: How Nicolle Wallace Pushed NYT Propaganda on COVID
"Molly Hemingway posted a clip from Nicole Wallace from MSNBC, Mali tweeted here the truly awful Nicole Wallace pushes New York Times propaganda that helped red China's effort to obstruct the investigation into the Wuhan institute of virology role in releasing a deadly deadly global pandemic. Here's a flashback from a long time ago about a year ago, MSNBC's Nicole Wallace. Traditionally, driven by science, not presidential politics. And the scientists aren't the only ones rankled today by Trump's effort at reputational repair. The New York Times also advances recent reporting on U.S. intelligence agencies, which we learned this week, provided Intel in the president's PDB as early as January about the lethal spread of COVID. Those same agencies now have been tapped with investigating one of Trump world's most favorite conspiracy theories. New York Times reports this, quote, senior Trump administration officials have pushed Americans by agencies to hunt for evidence to support an unsubstantiated theory that a government lab in Wuhan, China was the origin of the coronavirus outbreak. That's according to current and former American officials. The effort comes as president Trump escalates a campaign to blame China for the pandemic. Some Intel analysts are concerned that the pressure from the administration officials will distort assessments about the virus and that they could be used as a political weapon in an intensifying battle with China over a disease that has infected more than 3 million people across the globe.

Lord Conrad Black Reflects on the Last 9 Days in U.S. Politics
"Somebody who's north of the border who's done business across the globe ran an international media empire, how is this being read? What do you think in other capitals, friendly and unfriendly? Are the conclusions being drawn on the last 9 days in U.S. politics? Well, I think on the first balloon that was shot down offset South Carolina. Nobody disputes that was has been acknowledged to Chinese balloon. I think most opinion would be skeptical that China is accounting honestly for it. But there is widespread astonishment that the United States would tolerate this. Drifting all the way across the country, but we're before it was shot down. The U.S. and Canada. I mean, Canada should have shot it down once presumably. They were not as a joint venture. And they would be aware of it at the same time in the U.S. was. So but frankly, people in the world don't care too much about Canadian air space, but they're a little taken aback that the Americans would be tolerating the same drifting over the missile silos in North Dakota and so on. But I think I have no standing to speak for the world, but my impression is that people are surprised that the U.S. administration is treating the whole thing in such a cavalier manner and doesn't really seem to take it seriously at all. And then has compounded it by leaping from complacency to overkill and scrambling very sophisticated fighter planes and interceptors of both countries into the air to shoot down random, unidentified objects were even after they've been brought in. We have no real idea what they were.

Chinese Spy Balloon Sought Secret US Communications Signals
"According to our sources, the United States government, it says that the Chinese balloon that was shot down is equipped. Was equipped to collect intelligence signals as part of a huge military linked aerial sky program that targeted more than 40 countries, the Biden administration said on Thursday, citing imagery from America's U2 spy planes. A fleet of balloons operates under the direction of the people's Liberation Army and is used specifically for spying outfitted with high-tech equipment, designed to collect sensitive information from target targets across the globe, the U.S. said similar balloons have floated over 5 continents according to the administration. The statement from the senior State Department official offered the most details to date linking China's military to the balloon that was shot down over the U.S. last weekend over the Atlantic Ocean.

Mighty Oaks Foundation's Chad Robichaux on New Book, 'Saving Aziz'
"Is brand new, saving Aziz. How the mission to help one became a calling for thousands to rescue thousands from the Taliban. Okay, most people listening don't know anything about this. What is the story? Well, the story is President Biden made the announcement immediately after he took office. He was going to do a full withdrawal of the United States military from the 20 year occupation of Afghanistan. I immediately had a problem with that and I think anybody understands the military did. A lot of your listeners may not agree with me at first, but if you hear me out, we should never have withdrew from Afghanistan. I'm not a warmonger. My family's been at war for a long time. If we get void war, we don't want to be there. But saying that the military had been a 20 year war and it was endless war is just not true. We had in 2018, we shifted from a conventional kinetic war with that Taliban and shifted to supporting advisory role with the Afghan national army and Afghan national police, participating with the entire international community to fight the Taliban in the mountains of Afghanistan and not in the west, not here in America. And it was working. This is the most strategic place in the globe between Iraq, Iran Russia and China, and it wasn't ours to give up. It belonged to the international community. It blowing to the Afghan government that we spent 20 years putting in place. And we didn't negotiate with our NATO partners. The international community or the Afghan government, we only negotiate the Taliban and we gave that country up to our enemies, not just the Taliban, but China, Russia, Iran, Pakistan, ISI. And so I knew that was going to be catastrophic for national security and global security, but also knew that it would be catastrophic for our allies. And once they one more thing in that though, but when I say that we should have stayed there, historically, if you look at the history of how United States have been successful, a post war, we keep contingent forces in different areas strategically to prevent us from going back to war. Germany, we still have 40,000 troops since World War II. Japan, we have 80,000 troops since World War II in South Korea. We still have 35,000 troops since the Korea war. That strategy has worked for us, so do a full and complete withdrawal without leaving that only 2500 troops in a small contingent force in Afghanistan was a catastrophic era and I

Privacy Is a Human Right – and the 118th Congress Must Defend It
"All right, next up we turn to this piece from fight for the future's Leah and SEO hey, called privacy is a human right, and the 118th Congress must defend it. As the 118th U.S. Congress begins, the stakes surrounding our privacy rights have never been higher. For decades, lawmakers have utterly failed to defend everyday people. Much less those who are the most vulnerable online, from dangerous encroachments into our digital privacy. Just last week, the American civil liberties union revealed a massive surveillance drag net of people who use services like Western Union to send remittances. Now both sides of the aisle begin 2023 having painted a target on the backs of privacy preserving software projects and those who build them. This attitude poses a real danger not only in the U.S., but for people across the globe. It's time for software projects that value privacy to get organized. This is why our organization fight for the future has released a letter signed by 40 plus open-source decentralized and or privacy preserving projects that asks lawmakers to protect a pro privacy future. Signatories on this letter include Tor, the blockchain association, nim, protocol labs, proton, zcash, to denote, and mysterium. We have four simple asks. Constitutional human rights protections both on and offline. The first asked to Congress is straightforward. Do more to protect our constitutional human right to privacy. The right to privacy has always been a foundational principle of the U.S.. There are express or implied rights to privacy in the first, third, fourth, 5th, 9th and 14th amendments to the U.S. Constitution. Even the legal victory that established the constitutionally protected right to code was about encryption, meaning it was about privacy. Unfortunately, that decision did not settle the law. Threats to the right to code in the right to privacy are inextricably entwined, especially as more of our lives move into digital spaces where our rights are ignored and invasive surveillance as the default. To seriously and vigorously defend these rights, many in Congress would need to shift their thinking on the simple act of writing code. To recognize that this freedom is core to the technologies that empower democracy and must be defended. That also means a representatives must analyze the potential impacts of new laws and regulatory action on First Amendment protections when drafting new legislation.

Raheem Kassam Weighs In on the Pence Document Discovery
"We think about the Pence discovery of documents? We actually haven't talked about this yet today. It was the breaking news yesterday. What's your take on this? Yeah, I did a I did a short podcast on my substack, there's my little plug for that. Yesterday, when this happened, not least because of course, Mike Pence had already gone out there and said, no, I would never do this. I've never done this and then sure enough, you know, transparent that he had. And that's interesting enough in and of itself. I'm not sure why you would voluntarily offer that information if it were if it were false or you knew in some way that it would fall. So odd as far as that's concerned. But the bigger picture about all of this is and you mentioned the polyp bureau earlier. And I think that's a really great word to use as far as the Washington D.C. set is concerned because what are they really trying to do here Vis-à-vis declassification? The trying to make it seem and you've already seen the op eds, The Guardian, The New York Times, I've read one in The Boston Globe as well. Yesterday. The declassification process is so dated and we shouldn't have to rely on these old men to not steal documents away from whichever government department or whatever part of Congress that they had ever worked in. And that everything is basically too old and white and pale and stale. And what we really need is a committee driven approach to this, right? Which they mean a polyp bureau driven approach to this. The people like Alexander vindman should really be in charge of this the national security apparatus in D.C. should decide what gets declassified. Well, what happens, Charlie, if the national security apparatus is in charge of releasing information pertaining to the national security apparatus? Will they hide their malfeasance? That's what happens. I think that's the broader brush stroke here that they are trying to subsume power away from the commander in chief. So

DCG-Owned Luno Cuts Staff by 35%
"We have a very wintry mix of crypto stories out here today, starting with some layoff news from will. What do you got? That's right, global crypto exchange Luna is laying off about 35% of its staff, part of Barry silbert's DCG empire. It has offices in Singapore, London, and elsewhere around the globe. This is pretty bad news. Just adding more to the layoff story that we've been covering for quite a while. There's been about 29,000 layoffs according to coin desks own numbers since the beginning of the crypto bear market earlier last year. So just more numbers in terms of headcount, number seems to be a bit all over the place. Some numbers showing that Luna has about 900 employees and now trim about 300 staff, others showing that there's about 600 employees in trimming down about 200 SaaS. So we don't quite know for sure about 35% is a pretty wide margin. Luno has about 10 million different users around the globe, and they service different crypto assets via its exchange product. Of course, this is just part of DCG empire. They also own coin desk, genesis, foundry, and a few other firms such as grayscale. Zack going through the story over to you more bad news to begin the week. Yeah, for sure, man. This is the story about C 5 despite, you know, some pump and token prices and maybe some excitement, maybe a bit of macro tailwinds, still cfi is trimming headcount quite significantly. So I think there's the secular issue here, right? We saw that graphic with all the exchanges that are laying off significant chunks of their workforce. And then there's the specifics as it relates to DCG, which is in hot water, a relative to genesis, filing for bankruptcy last week, and potentially some of those dominoes falling and spilling over into some of their other assets. So Luna here is got a pinch by both those factors. And as a result, you're seeing significant job cuts announced by this exchange. So that to me is where Luna finds itself. It's pretty bleak and it adds to that really big number 29. Maybe 30,000 crypto jobs cut since April that coin desk is doing a good job keeping a running tally on.

"Like films. And yeah, he likes films, and he likes old things, and he's pretty finicky, as I understand it, and might respect your organizational system. And your passion for archiving, so do you think I should put them on the JML mailing list, Sean? Do you think that will improve your likelihood of getting the Duke of Sussex Sussex position? Yeah, I think he might be interested in some of our views on the global economy and so with that in mind. And on our relationship to zelensky as well, I feel like his royal highness might want to bestow upon me some additional titles. In addition to the lord of letterbox and the king of TikTok. I think it's pretty hard to get a dukedom without marrying in, you know? But we could probably hear you like an Earl, you know? Do we have a single gals out there in the royal family who I could be introduced to? I'm trying to is it bigamy if you get married in another country? Yes, I think so. In which country is it bigamy? No, that's a great point. But you remember, did you finish the first season of The Crown? I did, yes. Yeah, so the church plays a big role in deciding who these people can and can't marry. So I think it would be big of me in the eyes of God, there are God anyway. I'm glad we got to the bottom of this. I appreciate your expertise and these matters. We're turning to the fable moments. You know, actually, the movie that I am curious about most in the aftermath of this award show is everything everywhere. Yeah, I don't think that that is necessarily a Golden Globes kind of a movie. It is the movie that if you asked me with my head pressed against the wall, what's going to win best picture? I still think it's everything everywhere all at once. There's still something telling me that it's that movie. Now I think that after tonight though, I'm wavering on that. And in part, you know, it actually had a good night. I had two acting awards, and it was center stage for a lot of the conversation in the evening. Unlike a movie like Babylon, which came into this award show before its release, like a house on fire, and only got an award for Justin hurwitz for his score, which is an absolute diamond of a score, and this is his fourth Golden Globe. I think for his fourth visit his fourth film with chazelle that he has Golden Globes for anyhow. He's a fantastic. But you look at the performance tonight of Babylon and you're like, okay, maybe it's kind of petering out in the race. You could read it that way. Everything everywhere at once, I don't know. It feels like a quiet best actress and supporting actor knight, maybe I don't know if Jamie Lee Curtis had also won. I might have felt like, wow, there's like a swell, you know, and now there's a big push.

"globe" Discussed on The Times: Daily news from the L.A. Times
"This year's globes. Good morning, and welcome to the announcement of the 80th annual Golden Globe Award nominations. The reaction was fairly muted. Best performance by an actor in a limited series anthology series or motion picture made for television. Taron Egerton, blackbird, Colin Firth, the stairs. The morning of the nominations. We reached out to 60 nominees across the various film and TV acting categories and in the end, only one person was willing and available to get on the phone to talk about their nomination. And most didn't respond at all. The one person who was available to get on the phone to talk about their nomination was niecy Nash. Niecy Nash, Dahmer, monster, the Jeffrey Dahmer story. And she talked about how moving and important it was for her to be dominated. So, you know, this award still is meaningful for a lot of people who are nominated. It's still a milestone in their career and something that they can use as a kind of springboard to other opportunities. But a lot of people still seem reluctant to be seen kind of publicly embracing a group that was so recently being shunned and who's replication has been tarnished to some degree. And it still remains to be seen how many nominees and other stars are going to show up on the night of the show. And that's, I think, really when we'll see just how ready the industry is to embrace the globes again. So who do you think is actually going to show up then? Well, we know that some people are showing up. I mean, Gerard Carmichael is going to host. And we don't know what he'll say, but he is going to be hosting. And we know that some nominees like Steven Spielberg and the cast of the fable man's are going to be there, Daniel Craig is apparently going to be there. And they've announced some presenters and they're certainly highlighting the sort of diversity of the presenters. This is all a testament to the fact that kind of behind closed doors, the HFPA has been holding meetings with publicists and studios really for months to try to thaw relationships and convince the industry that it has made significant reforms. And really try to persuade them, look, this is good business for everybody. Everybody in the awards ecosystem has a stake in the survival of this show. Why do you think this skepticism continues, Stacy, the stereotype of Hollywood is that they always want to throw parties for each other. They always want to get any little amount of award. So here's something that's been going on for decades. And now it's back and now they say, hey, everything's much better. You could trust us now and yet still there seems to be almost like blase attitude to it now. Well, I mean, I think if you look at the fact that it took 20 months for them to get to this point, it's a rather long time. I think Hollywood, particularly publicist and talent, have a long history of interactions with the HFPA that gives them pause, you know, the board, the president, the majority of the actual members, remain the same pool of people. So there are those questions and you're kind of in this gray area now, so you've tied bully and he's announced all these changes, but not all of them have been implemented yet. I think, you know, this year is kind of a strange year. It's kind of a wait station, whereas next year, you'll see more of those factors put in place and then you can have sort of a track record to look at. I think also a lot of people in Hollywood are kind of nervous to go down the red carpet, those that show up and be asked an opinion. Why are you here? What do you think? Nobody wants to raise their hand, especially in a nice ball gown on a red carpet on a night that they're being honored and ask these kinds of uncomfortable questions. So the owner of the Golden Globes now, Todd bully, what does he have to say about all the skepticism surrounding this latest iteration? I mean, interestingly enough, he acknowledges that their skepticism, I think he told us you can't win over everybody all of the time and it's kind of theirs to lose. It's theirs to prove that they have made strides. And that they are moving forward and that they do want to be a viable part of the Hollywood universe or the ecosystem. So yeah, I think he took a fairly forthright kind of humble position realistic position that this is going to take time. There's no magic bullet. More, after the break. So Josh, NBC renewed the globe's telecast for so far just a year. So we're going to see if it's going to be a real lasting comeback or not. But since it is back on TV, what does its return mean for other awards shows like the Oscars or the sag awards? Well, the Golden Globes has, for years, been a kind of key stop on the road to the Oscars. And at a time when a lot of kind of awards hopefuls have been struggling at the box office, whether it's tar or the fable moons, studios really kind of need awards shows like the globes more than ever, really, to help bring marketing attention to their movies. I mean, there's a reason that studios and networks have historically invested millions of dollars every year into trying to get gloves nominations. And that kind of fundamental dynamic hasn't changed even with all the controversy. But at the same time, the viewership for awards shows in general, whether you're talking about the Emmys or the Oscars or the Grammys, they've all been trending downward for years. Some people think that they're in kind of a death spiral. For a long time, the globes were able to kind of buck that trend, NBC aired the globes on Sunday Night, the lead in was usually a Sunday Night football game and that pretty reliably delivered an audience in the neighborhood of 18 million viewers a year. It certainly helped that this was the first awards show on the calendar that it had a reputation for being fun and loose and boozy and it covered both film and TV. Ratings for the show in 2021 just the week after our investigation came out, we're down sharply only about 7 million people watched it that year. And this year, I think it's really anyone's guess how many people will tune in on a Tuesday night for an awards show that they haven't seen for two years. For the two of you, what would success look like for the Golden Globes this year? I think success would look like the Golden Globes of yore. You would just have a huge population, a huge galaxy of stars and celebrities show up. It would once again be the party of the year, and it would deliver a blockbuster ratings for NBC. And that's a tall order. I think on both scores, particularly now. Yeah, I mean, just in the two years since the globes have been on the air, the entertainment landscape has only gotten more fragmented and the number of people who seem eager to tune in at a certain time to a certain channel to watch celebrities give each other awards. That seems to have continued to shrink. So if the globe is going to succeed, it's going to have to give the audience some reason to tune in. Some entertainment value that it can't get anywhere else. And that starts with celebrities showing up and lending their star power to the show and investing it with a sense of kind of glamour and legitimacy.

"Past 20 months. So after these initial stumbles did the Hollywood foreign press association actually make any substantive change? They did. I mean, they hired consultants and lawyers. They did bring on a full-time C suite member. They changed their bylaws. They had these very antiquated bylaws that this might be too in the weeds, but you needed two thirds majority to do anything to make any change that shook that up. They brought in 21 new members, 6 of whom were black, they changed certain policies. They were no longer allowed to take gifts. There were curbs on their travel. And more recently, they added a 103 international voters. These are not members, but these are voters so that changed the composition of the group. It diversified the group both geographically and ethnically and in terms of gender. That was important. So they have made definitely a number of changes. Todd bowley, who is the CEO of Eldridge industries. He's a billionaire. He owns stakes in the Dodgers, and now the Chelsea football team and London and the Beverly Hilton and Dick Clark productions. And a number of entities stepped in to become interim CEO. We had the combination of the business model that was changing, challenged governance, and a sense of power, which ultimately resulted in the catastrophe that we all witnessed. Josh and I spoke to him a couple of weeks ago and he acknowledged that there was a lot that needed to change. And it would take a crisis in order to maintain change. So traditionally, the Hollywood foreign press association has been a nonprofit organization made up of volunteer members who are foreign entertainment journalists based in Los Angeles. Now it's a for profit, it's private enterprise, members are employees, they're paid salaries of $75,000 a year. So how do you make people accountable when you transition the organization from a not for profit with non accountability and bad governance into an organization where there's real accountability, you know, employee based accountability? They're going to have paid vacations dental and medical just like any other employee. But it also means two things. It means as a for profit and a private for profit at that. It's less transparent. Their financials will not be available. Their tax reforms as a not for profit are available publicly as our any not profit. So there'll be less visibility in the machinations and the operations of the organizations. But also, I think this is a key point. As employees, they're at will employees, so they can be fired for cause or without cause at any time. I think that's one prong of accountability. I mean, if you're an employee, you have stakes in the organization. You have an investment in doing well and continuing on in order to get paid. So that's his definition of accountability. You know, for years, the HFPA had these exclusive press conferences that they set up with different television shows and movies. And a number of the members would use those press conferences to get commissions to get articles to get paid essentially. And so they became a real cornerstone of a revenue stream for several members. But the system broke down because it also became sort of if you ask any publicist, it's never written in stone, but it was a sort of unwritten rule that if you were going to be considered for a Golden Globe, you had to participate in these press conferences, which is one of the reasons that broke down and that the public is really wanted to abandon this long time standing tradition. And so I think what bully saying when you take that off the table, it sort of removes some of these incentives for potential conflict. Now, by making them not reliant on press conferences and I take away kind of the conflicts of interest that were embedded in the organization that might have created the opportunity to be swayed by things other than, you know, being authentic and having real integrity. Josh, what are critics of the Hollywood foreign press association saying about these changes? Well, I mean, whether everything they've done adds up to a really reformed group is kind of in the eye of the beholder. And in terms of diversity, you can say that they certainly made strides. They now say that they're more than half female and more than half racially and ethnically diverse. But some of their long-standing issues remain in terms of transparency. This was always a very secretive group. But now that it's a private for profit company, we're going to have even less sort of visibility into how it's run. The journalistic credibility of some of its members is still, frankly, kind of questionable. And a number of the members whose behavior the industry found kind of problematic are still there. And like Stacy said, the ownership by Todd bully, who has financial stakes in the trade magazines, which cover award seasons in the indie film company a 24, which has movies and contention for the globes. All of that raises questions about conflicts of interest. So ultimately, you know, the upshot of all the reforms is that the Golden Globes has turned itself into a for profit group of paid professional voters that is something that Hollywood hasn't really seen before and that I think a lot of people still feel a little uncomfortable about. How did bully respond to this criticism about planned payments for members? Well, it was interesting. I mean, he sees them as employees and, you know, we got a hold of the contract, the contract explicitly outlines their duties, which are to watch films and television shows, nominate them and vote on them and as Josh said, I mean, essentially, this makes them paid voters. They're being paid $75,000 a year. He saw this as just, you know, employee duties. That was the way he looked at it. He didn't see a conflict he didn't see a problem. He felt that this was a way to kind of shake off the old yoke of problems that girded the organization for decades and to make them accountable was to make them employees. And I think this is a mechanism about becoming professional. Right? And, you know, I think if you look at what is the things that make professional organizations professionals. I don't think it's anything other than proper checks and balances. Good governance and mechanisms to ensure that the organization is evolving with the times at a very professional standard. More, after the break. So Stacey and Josh, the investigation that the two of you did the fallout from it. Attempts at transformation, there's a lot right there. But now the Golden Globes are back on TV this week. So Josh, how is Hollywood at large feeling about this? Or they're cheering, sneering, or just like, eh, over it. I'd say a lot of people in the awards ecosystem are pleased to see the globes make a comeback. But I'd say if Hollywood on the whole is cheering, at least so far, they're doing it pretty quietly. When the HFPA announced its nominations last

"Welcome. Welcome to the Golden Globes. 5th annual golden globes and happy new year Hollywood. We are gonna have some. Let's have a laugh at your expense. Shall we? But the Golden Globes are one of the most problematic awards shows, too. Many talented people of color were snubbed in major categories. Unfortunately, there's nothing we can do about that. The Hollywood foreign press are all very, very racist. After a 2021 LA times investigation revealed that the group that runs a Golden Globes, the Hollywood foreign press association committed multiple ethical lapses and had no black members at all, many in Hollywood boycotted the awards. Then NBC even took the Golden Globes off the air, but tomorrow? It's back. NBC says the Golden Globes will be back on TV on January 10th. The return of the Golden Globes this week is its way of telling Hollywood we've changed. No, really? I'm Gustav Ariana. You're listening to the times. Essential news from the LA times. It's Monday, January 9th, 2023. Today, has the Hollywood foreign press association done enough to fix its reputation, or the Golden Globes to tarnish to ever truly shine again. Stacy perman is a company town reporter working on investigations and enterprise stories in the entertainment industry for the Los Angeles Times, and Josh rottenberg covers the business of film for the LA times. Stacey Josh, we haven't had the two of you on together since the very first week of the time, so welcome back. Thanks. Good to be here. Thanks Gustavo. So in February of 2021, just a week before that year's Golden Globe ceremony, the two of you published the bombshell investigation about the operations of the Hollywood foreign press association, which is the group behind the awards show. Stacy remind us of what the investigation discovered all the lowlights what happened. Well, the investigation started because the Norwegian journalist sued the organization. She had applied for membership multiple times and was denied. And she said that the organization, you know, she alleged in her lawsuit that it operated like a cartel that it kept out qualified journalists like herself and levied a number of allegations. I do not think that an HFPA member is majority of them wanted to change. They were just forced to change because they were told if you don't change, it's over. So Josh and I, that was kind of our starting point. And what we found was an organization with lots of questions. The group is made up of foreign journalists, their credibility was a question. But we also found bigger things like self dealing. There are nonprofit. They were sitting on $50 million in cash at that time, and they created a whole system of committees and tasks to pay these volunteer members. There were questions about votes and how junkets that they were paid to go to may or may not have influenced them. All sorts of ethical lapses. And something that got a terrific amount of attention was the fact that at the time there were 87 members and not a single one was black. Yeah, the investigation got a lot of attention, but Josh, how did Hollywood react to all of this? Well, the investigation and particularly like Stacy said, the reporting of the fact that the group had no black members, it sparked a course of criticism that was certainly beyond anything Stacey and I expected. Within days of the story being published, you had time's up and powerful industry figures like Ava duvernay and Shonda Rhimes calling for the HFPA to undertake major reforms. You had stars like Scarlett Johansson and Mark Ruffalo publicly blasting the group and over the next few months, you had publicists banding together in an unprecedented way to essentially boycott the HFPA and deny them access to talent and as the HFPA was kind of fumbling through their initial efforts at reforms. The bottom really started to fall out of their support eventually Hollywood's biggest studios and platforms, Netflix, Warner Brothers, Amazon, HBO, they all said that they were cutting ties with the group until it cleaned up its act. Then you even had to cap it off, Tom Cruise saying that he was going to return his three globes trophies. Finally, by May of 2021, NBC, which has aired the globe's since 1996, decided that the situation was just untenable, and they announced they were pulling the show off the air for 2022. I mean, Stacy and Josh, your stories nearly ended the Golden Globes once and for all and because of that, the Hollywood foreign press association vowed immediately that they were going to change to save themselves. What were some of their very first moves, Stacey? Well, the first was that they made this very public announcement, this vow that they were committing to transformational change. Change in governance from top to bottom. But that's not it. We also passed a brand new set of policies banning the acceptance of gifts, restricted pay travel, and also new grievance procedure. The members will also finish their training and diversity, equity, and inclusion. And also sign a new code of Chi. This is Laura Nelson.

You know, you have this organization that, while publicly was committing to change behind the scenes, there were members who had been there for decades that felt really criticized and put upon that they were the victims that they were being forced to reform when they didn't need to. And I think a lot of that came from the fact that for decades, you know, a lot of people in Hollywood joked and mocked the awards, even Ricky Gervais from the stage. We were going to do an in memoriam this year, but when I saw the list of people that had died, it wasn't diverse enough. No. It was mostly white people. And I thought nah, not on my watch. And they had scandals in the past, but they all sort of blew over. And I think they thought this would just be another one of those times where they'd get some bad press and everybody would move on. And we'd continue on the red carpet, business as usual. But that just didn't happen. I mean, they did hire equity and inclusion consultant from USC. He quit within weeks. That happened around the time the heels we reported that a former president of the organization in 8 term president had sent out an email to the group that like in Black Lives Matter to a hate group. You know, there was all sorts of fumbles. There were calls for them to disband the group and have them reapply under much more strict requirements. There were a lot of outside agitation and they just weren't interested in it. I think what really popped for them what really hurt was when the publicist boycotted because that basically cut off their oxygen to celebrities. They were used to having these exclusive events. These exclusive press conferences, this access that nobody else had to talent. And that was cut off. And that became a huge shift for them and just made them sort of Hollywood priors for the

"All right, so prezi has invented this snow globe files for a patent in 1900 for a quote glass globe with snow effect. Called the snake. Sinéad's German for snow and kugel is like a globe or a ball or an orb, seen it as like a cannonball or a sphere. But it's snow globe. It took about 5 years only before there was a business being run in Vienna named firm Percy. And then they later changed the name to the original Vienna. Manufacturer. The original Vienna snow globe factory. And they are still making those snow globes, and it's still the family, making the snow globes. Yeah, Irwin Percy the third who now runs the show in has since the 80s. So cool. Yeah, it is really cool. And they're really high end snow globes too. I think several American presidents have commissioned snow globes from them. They take custom orders. So if you have a really cool snow globe idea and a chunk of change, the percies will make you whatever you want. I'm not friends with them. I just have heard this before, so. I wonder if Irwin the third was in the 80s. It's like 9. I'm going to be in a band like craftwork. And they said, you realize you live in a castle, would you like to see the balance sheet? And he went, eh, maybe I'll stay in the family business. So the first 40 years, chuck, they weren't really associated with Christmas. That came later on. Instead, they were typically religious themed stuff. One of their blockbuster sellers was Maria zell basilica, which is a church in Austria. It's not in Vienna. I think it's more toward the east. And it's a pretty big imposing baroque cathedral. And one of the reasons why they focus so much on this is because it was a, it was sold as a religious offering to pilgrims who had come to this church. They set up a souvenir. A religious souvenir. They set up a stall and they would say souvenirs, novelties, parties, and people would buy the snow globe and they would leave it as an offering. Yeah, they set up a thing between you and the exit. It thus began the exit through the gift shop. Exit the church through the gift shop. But yeah, they took off really in a big way, Orson Welles used one very famously in Citizen Kane. At the end, when that snow globe breaks, I'm curious now if they made the saint Elias hospital when, oh yeah, for the end of saint elsewhere. Man, that's a great question. I gotta look that up, but Irwin two took over after World War II and said, you know what? We're doing great with these religious globes, but snow means Christmas, Christmas means snow. Why don't we start putting Santa clauses in there and Christmas trees and snowmen? And they did. And then it became really heavily associated with Christmas. And they are pumping out with about 30 employees about 200,000 of these still every year. And they're all made by hand. They're hand painted. Again, really well made. Early on though, they became like an American phenomenon. Like America said, these are ours. Snow globes are American from now on by about the mid 20th century, I believe. And they actually became like a go to souvenir in the post war boom, where people started traveling around. Where they started making better highways and all that in Americans just started driving around. And one of the reasons why that was able to happen was thanks to innovations in plastic. Yeah, plastic changed everything for good and bad. And they found out, you know, you're always looking for the perfect particulate, I guess, to act as the snow because what you don't want is to shake this thing up. And if you've ever seen a cheap snow globe and I had plenty of those growing up, trust me. Sure. If you shake that thing up and the snow's on the ground in 15 seconds, you're really not getting that sense of awe and wonder that you're looking for. No. You wanted to stay floating around. And over the years, they experimented with different types of matter to use in there. And I think theirs is, theirs is a trade secret, right? That's the impression I have, yes. That they're not letting anyone know, but as some sort of wax or and or plastic, okay. And apparently there's are so well made that there's snowfalls can last two minutes after you shake it up two minutes. Halfway through that, you'd be like, okay, and not fall ready. Check my I don't need to be delighted any longer. You know? I'm going to get one of these. This is inspired me. I'm going to get a genuine Irwin Austrian snow globe. Percy. Well, or Irwin, this is the first name I guess. Right. We're pretty tight. Yeah, I guess so. You're on the first thing basis. You call him Percy. I call him Ernie the third. So chuck, I think we've reached the end of this holiday centric short stuff, don't you? I do. Well, jingle bells out of here. Stuff you should know is a production of iHeartRadio.

"The and not something that they really with all of wanda's actions throughout this episode. They really made it a point to make sure you recognize that she. Yes she on one hand she does have all of these people in this in the state and is keeping them held hostage and has interrupted their lives very much like thanos snapped a bunch of people assistance and interrupted their lives But at the same time she is mentally unstable with the amount of grief and loss. And and just this this this life that she's she's lead where she she doesn't she. She may be found herself in the comfort of the wrong person. But yeah and i could. Yeah yeah at at and that sesa very pointed to your to your counterpoint. With my y you sitcom that she you know she. It may be. That is the counter programming. That who is who really is strange here Is you utilize the sitcom construct to help her. Deal with with all the lost she. She's she suffered From losing vision losing a brother and all the all the all the other situations that we've we've seen replayed in in the commercials. Yeah i mean. We're we're talking about reality word about wanda's power powerbases manipulation of reality so to sitcom seems really logical to me just because the it is escapism. It is it is a an what they went. After is she was in love and had her her heart. She had to literally ripped her heart out of herself in a way what she had to do division and and so she found solace in this idea that will if i make everything like it is on tv show than all can be right. We can have our disagreements but will always resolve the issue will always learn our lesson and move forward will that normal quote unquote life right right and that was a very interesting point. You know with with the what the twins with her sons. She's trying to do this. Escapism or for someone tried to help her escape from the law says she has suffered. But then whenever you know dealing with the story was sparky and of and then when agnes brings sparky out of the desire bushes and again i think this is guest to the point about agnes. Be into manipulator because But a really forcing wanda to address the reality of the of the she's dealt that she's trying to escape from because you know the boys are ready to age up again that he could escape from from the loss of the dog but then wanda and in this case maybe the rwanda is coming through and just like no you..

"And and of course craven's next one out obviously have anything beyond this particular fan site report this but they apparently had a pretty good track record of like stuff so we shall see me as i this. It's been offers. This is one of those things where it's like offered meaning like yeah hurt. I heard my friends. I have kiono got offered israel. So but i have seen it. I've seen it reported in several several spots utilizing this particular Source maybe maybe. We'll get a confirmation later this week. What is with this flash. Tom holland on andrew garfield comma toby. So yeah we're doing. We're doing chauffeur. Oh as we record so a. Tom hollander over the weekend. I guess like last. Friday had had an interview with variety where he had He had had an interview talking about spiderman three and then also has other film coming up. Yeah and so though you know. They asked the question about you know. Of course. Toms out unit and the tories for like spoiling stuff so They asked him about casting andrew and and toby of the scene that and he was like if they have been. I is news to me. So it kinda downplayed it And the interview but he did say that that this particular spider man film is the most business of the a very ambitious film that they're that they're putting together. Yeah well the cast lists certainly sounds ambitious so and all of the hype now with all of the rumors circulating. It's like he you better if you're not going to deliver this then whatever you do have in store better be on par so Which spider man. I don't know if we want to get into that. But i just it's whenever spiderman happens it will happen. We'll see it will suggest from there golden globe and saying nominations came out. Yeah get a chance to look at the list will. yeah i was. I was waiting for you. I was waiting for you to get your thoughts on any of them. I so i looked at both lists. I think that it's it's interesting one film that stuck out to me was And i don't know if i'm pronouncing it right but Mar maria maria and heard a lot about this film. And i'm very excited for whenever i get to see it but it's interesting with the golden globes. Say they kind of just stuck it under foreign language film and Neither of the leader leading actor or actress Got nominations from what i could kill you but instead they did and their unsolvable got nominated in the movie itself nominated so it's just like that. That was a big difference that i noticed a few other things that yeah yeah i know what the i guess the other i guess in the best pitcher category two in addition to to that one I guess the globes add like the father make and noland and a promising young women of course traveled to chicago seven. But then i the sag awards at mar rainey's Black bottom and the five bloods and in one night miami. And so the only one headquartered in both best pitcher categories atallah chicago seven so yeah it was very interesting.
