Robbie's adoptive mom, Maria says before he entered the foster system. Robbie was a holy terror so badly abused. He was twice hospitalized with brain injuries. Then, two years ago, Maria and her husband, Charles adopted him. What did that they mean to you? Everything. He has come a long way. Except in this one respect, Maria says he could not cry. Despite the horrors of his past, or maybe because of them. The kid was a stone. Until one of Robbie's old dogs had to be put down. He wanted to hold her till the end and insisted his mom take pictures. Perhaps because he knew what was about to happen. After Robby finally let go, he told his mom. I know how it feels not to be loved or cared for, and I don't want any animal of mine to feel that way. Nor does he want any foster kid to feel that way. More order people order dogs. Don't want babies and puppies. He is so aware that it could have gone totally differently for him. And in these older dogs, Robbie's found a place Tio. Practice compassion. Someday. Robbie wants to adopt older foster Children himself up and knock on the door, but until then, to show his commitment and do what he can. He has vowed to adapt as many old dogs as his parents will allow Flower and do everything in his power to encourage others to do the same. After we first told this story, Robbie started volunteering at the Humane Society, where he has become a powerful advocate for older dogs. He hasn't Fired dozens of adoptions, all the loving families, all forever homes and all because a sweet little boy saw his reflection. In the eyes of the suffering.

"Who was going to win in a 40 or a 60 yard dash they were talking about who was the fastest man in the room without seeing the results.

Unemployment is bad, but we dont know just how bad
"We begin today unemployment and I'm GonNa hit you with a bunch of numbers tomorrow morning the Labor Department will release its employment report for July the June report showed that nearly eighteen million Americans were out of work this morning we learned that just shy of one point two, million people filed for first time unemployment last week they joined the roughly thirty million Americans who are already claiming unemployment benefits. So eighteen million, thirty, million, thirty, one. And two how many unemployed Americans are there right now other than you know a lot we asked marketplace's Mitchell. Hartman to crunch the numbers. Let's start with those unemployment claims economists like this number because it's up to date and reflect the actual number of claims states process last week says Joe Bruce, Willis RSM consulting all of the people who were receiving some form of unemployment benefits, and that's north of thirty one, million people on the other hand. The Labor Department's monthly jobs report for June pegged the number of unemployed Americans at just under eighteen million. But that's likely low ball right now says at least Gould at the Economic Policy Institute to be counted as unemployed, you have to be actively looking for work, but in Cova Times, there are many people that are not actually looking because they are taking the advice of the health experts in this country maybe they're caring for children right now who schools have been closed former. Commissioner Eric Griffin has her own formula for counting total unemployment right now, what I've been doing is adding up all of the people whose jobs have been disrupted the bulk of them probably pandemic of recession related including those waiting to be called back from furlough and part timers who want fulltime work she comes up with twenty five million.

The Umbrella Academy comes back stronger than ever with briskly paced second season
"Content. I think at this point is slightly underrated, given the number of options that are out there. I think we sort of forget how much good stuff Netflix is cranking out beyond just their regular streaming. But all the stuff that they're specifically creating agree 100% when I when Disney Plus was being launched They had the deal where you could ahead of time, pay for, like, three years and get a reduced rate. My plan was I was going to do that. And then I was going to dump Netflix because a lot of what I liked on Netflix was the marvel content that was now Migrating to Disney, Plus I haven't cancelled Netflix yet. They keep coming up with such good stuff I can't give you can give us an example of like something you watch recently. Well, the stuff that I was bending over the weekend that the latest season of last chance you Which simultaneously entertains and discuss you this this last season and horrifies you right? Exactly because the coaches in the 1st 4 seasons were just horrible, horrible human beings. Now in this fifth season. They actually have a decent human being as a head coach. It's still Shows you what of factory college athletics is and that there's these real human beings that are scratching and clawing, trying to make it Having very, very short odds of actually getting there. And how much you know the coaching staffs in the schools and the people will show them love so long as they're useful to them. But as soon as they become not useful to him, they get cast aside in a heartbeat, and it just sort of breaks your heart. To see you know these kids that you want to see succeed? Knowing that they're probably not gonna make it. It's sort of fascinating. Siri's I love that one theater, one that I've
Big tech CEOs testify before Congress
"So, this hearing just going to say it, it was six hours of chaos. So. So many things like individual moments of pure chaos happened this hearing. But because every member of Congress was only given five minutes to ask the questions in and they moved on, no one could process the moments of cash. So here are some things that happened during this hearing. Jeff. bezos just started eating nuts on his call. That was just a thing that you started snacking for the first ninety minutes. It appears that basis had tech issues was operating in some kind of delay. So we didn't hear from him. They just answer any questions and they'd take a ten minute break Jeff. bezos could fix his computer. Amazing. Jim Jordan, who McKenna pointed out. On the show last week is always sort of chaos element. Try to talk over several members of Congress got yelled to put his mass back on floated. Just elaborate conspiracy theories. was when I say was chaos I. Don't know if there's any other way to describe it. I. Think that led a lot of people to think the hearing itself didn't accomplish its goals, but I think in many ways it did. But Kennedy you WanNa Kinda go through what the committee was trying to accomplish the themes they were pointed at in. How hearing played out, right. So okay. First off. Harkening back to last week I mentioned Jim. Jordan's mountain dew obsession. Definitely drink a handful those throughout the hearing I took notes in screen shots. So, I, called it. But regardless of their pores soda choices, there were a lot of lawmakers who definitely did their homework and I think that was really apparent throughout the entire hearing and when I look at. The picture that they tried to paint I think that became really clear in chairman Sicily's opening statements. So this is the guy who liked. And spearheaded the entire investigation from the beginning, and in those opening statements, he pointed out that yeah Apple Amazon Google facebook. There are different in a lot of ways and they exhibit anticompetitive behaviors potentially allegedly and a lot of different ways. But what they tried to pull together and was a story, and it's really hard to tell a story and five minute fragments. But what happened yesterday was Sicily. Ni, and a lot of the Democrats on the Committee wanted to point out that these companies they become bottlenecks for distribution whether that's information or just like APP stores marketplace's they control what gets distributed in how what was really key to the investigation was how? How they survey competitors. If you have so much control dominance over a market or a specific part of the tech industry, you have a lot of insight into your competitors and you can do a lot of dangerous things with that, and then lastly, after that dominance has gained, it's how they abuse it. Right? How they abuse it to make harder for small businesses in competitors and I think that's exactly what Cellini pointed out in the beginning and I think they did a poor job that storytelling throughout the process. But I think that's also our job. Right is to pull that evidence together and tell that story for them in a way that isn't like. Yes, no yelling at CEOS and like stopping them and I think by getting that in the evidentiary record doing all this questioning, I think they really did achieve their goal in the end. Yeah. I mean, I think the thing that happened sort of next to the hearing was that they released a bunch of documents from these one point, three, million documents of clutch. Over the past year, they released pretty targeted selection documents for every company showing some of this stuff, Casey, I wrote a story about. facebook. INSTAGRAM. My I'm going to frame this email or mark Zuckerberg. Literally one sentence, no period. The Andrew says I need to figure out. I'M GONNA buy instagram like I would love to just be in a place were sending that email like super casually like I got this thing to figure out and it's not like am I gonNa buy the model of the car. It's like instagram. I've been thinking of the text messages where so and so says that Mark Zuckerberg's didn't go destroy mode on instagram ever since they got that up. Case she this to Kevin and right that text was. Yes. Well, it was Kevin. System was talking to an investor and Kevin said to the investor. If we don't sell well, mark, go into destroy mode on us and the investor side probably. Of course, stray casual. So there's just a lot of documents and I think one of the functions of hearing was to get those documents into the official congressional record to make the CEO's account for them. That did not seem very successful to me. Is like a takeaway people should have from this hearing, right? No. I think a lot of people that go into these hearings are expecting like these big Gotcha moments and expecting like a lot of news and all this stuff. But it really, it wasn't oversight hearing. You know it wasn't. They didn't come. They came at this like in a report last earlier this week that they came out at as investigators. They didn't come at it to make a big show horse and pony show out of it, and yet I think the CEO's didn't. The record well enough to the extent that they could have. But there was definitely, I was expecting them to do a lot less evasion and I expected a lot less room probation with the documents, but it's just the process of a Congressional hearing. It's. It's hard to do that in a congressional hearing. But if you put those documents out there, you get the CEO's on the record a little bit who does excite this excites the FTC. J, and that's who can take this next and then it's also congress. You know they can't break up a tech company, but they can regulate going forward and it's those three key themes that I pointed out earlier that they could regulate. You know what I mean. They could legislate to forbid companies from surveying competitors and things like that, and that's where this goes. So the format of the hearing, every member and five minute chunks, it seemed very clear that the Democrats had some sort of coordinated evidentiary strategy, they would start and. And they would say, I, want to read this email to you. What did you mean by this email and then Jeff bezos would say something like I have. No idea is on works. I. Was real pattern that developed was basis really not doing or claiming he definitely knows claiming not really no way Wayne is under the thing they did or they would ask sooner Pichai about the very granular add deal google made by an ad product, and soon I, would say I'll get back to you, which is basically all responses. So the Democrats seemed like they were coordinated to move through their documents. The Republicans seem to be doing something else that also seem coordinated intentional, but what was their focus because that seemed clear split my takeaway from Jim Jordan who? We got into earlier, he he was interviewing. As if they were all Jack Dorsey. And as we talked about like, yeah, he invited Jack Dorsey to testify, but he doesn't sit on the antidote subcommittees. Anything. He says, it just doesn't matter. So it sounded to me as if he prepared questions Jack Dorsey and then it was like, oh, he's not coming I'll ask Tim Cook the same questions. Another completely crazy moment that happened just seen by and five minute chunks is that. Represented Sensenbrenner from Wisconsin Dear Sweet Wisconsin. Definitely. Asked Mark Zuckerberg why the Donald Junior was banned from twitter and mark. Zuckerberg was happening on twitter facebook and there was just like a moment of confused silence, and then he tried to move on and that just sort of floated by in the river of chaos to tell you how much chaos there was kneeling. When you started to tell that story, I thought you were going to tell the story about when Jim Jordan asked him cook if the famous one, thousand, nine, hundred, four, Apple Super Bowl, AD was actually about twenty twenty cancel culture, which is another thing that really happened. I think that's out of context. He didn't ask him. He said clearly, this is. That's definitely what Steve Jobs was thinking IBM is canceled culture and Apple's going to break it with hammer and Jeff. Bezos said that social media is a nuance destruction machine and all this crazy stuff from that. It was a wild will that that particular question when Jim Jordan asked, do you support the cancel culture mov, you could see the CEOS like. 'cause they went in order. He asks them all in order. So First Tim Cook just like basically muttered nothing. Here's like I don't. I support speech whatever. The iphone a keyboard like that was his answer. Sooner per child also, just like muttered, right? He's like Google has always supported free expression Zuckerberg like saw the opportunity and took it and the forces of liberalism I rising I, and then basis was like I cannot. I cannot do in like went for it, and that was just totally insane moment. But it also seems like the Republicans were intentional to try to create their own moments where they were yelling at CEOS about bias on platforms is obviously something cover a. At. You were paying a lot of attention that case you're paying a lot of attention to it. Do you think that was effective in creating because you know there's like a parallel conservative Universe Jim? Jordan was on Tucker. Carlson. Last night like was that effective or d think that the CEO's were able to sort of tamp down on interesting the Tucker Carlson pointed out that Google and other companies are all big donors to Jim Jordan another folks. So that is a weird side, but I think it was actually besides the moment where they mixed up twitter with facebook I. Think this was much more effective off. Off Topic yelling about technology than we usually see like are genuinely issues that like they are upset about that, they could point to largely around like cove nineteen misinformation and they could at least like pick those topics and stick to them rather than kind of asking vague questions about like, why is my phone listening to me? Well, they're definitely asked questions about why are my campaign emails getting filtered by G mail? Yes. I should. I should mention that they have really and they have all of these cases where they ask about extremely specific one off incidents that anyone who has used social media knows happens constantly. And, then turn them into a sinister pattern. But I think they managed to come off as sounding more like they understood what they were talking about the unusual. I think that was a real theme of the hearing, Casey. What did you think of this sort of bias side show that occurred? Well, I mean the the idea that conservative voices are being suppressed is foundational to the conservative movement and is behind the rise of conservative talk radio. It was behind the rise of Fox News. Now that social media exists, we have seen it in this new form, but it is sort of being presented as extra, sinister and worthy of. Some sort of legislative intervention what frustrates me about it is that much more than newspapers or or cable news like Mark Zuckerberg Dorsey. These people benefit hugely from having all possible voices on their platform. None of them is incentivized to drive conservatives off their platform. What they are incentivized to do is have rules that make the place safe and welcoming. So that people want to hang out there and so to the extent that there are issues on the platform, they've largely come because these platforms have rules. And you know you would think that a bunch of free marketeers would realize that the alternative to the system that they're so mad about would be creating a new system, but they don't seem at all interested in doing that. So I just sort of dismissed all of them as charlatans I actually thought it was interesting that the opposite track came up, which was the Stop Hey for profit campaign I kind of wasn't expecting that. The representative Raskin I believe asked facebook. Basically, why aren't you kicking more hate speech off. I forget who else asked like look is the point that you're so big. You don't care about advertiser boycotts I. Mean, you know it will here. Here is a fact that the number one complaint that facebook gets from its users, the thing that users. About. FACEBOOK is that it removes too much content and so if you're running the place, you do have to take these complaints seriously in a way. Right? It might not be you know that you shadow band conservative whatever that even means on social network in twenty twenty. But the fact that you're removing content is really upsetting people. So you can't dismiss that idea entirely, but I still don't feel like we're having that intellectually honest conversation about it. So this was definitely I feel like you can connect the you control distribution. We're GONNA show the abuses of power narrative. We got other. Democrats. With the you control distribution. You're banning conservatives right like I. Think what's Sensenbrenner Again, cups and conservatives are consumers to is that people don't realize that like fifty percent of the population in many ways. But facebook has like famous conservatives working its highest levels Kevin. We last week, we're talking about Kevin Roose keeps sharing the list. List of the most engaged content from crowd tangle. It's all conservative content, and that's so problematic for facebook that they're. They're pushing back with other metrics and graphs of their own, making the facts just aren't there, but it doesn't seem to be convincing. Brett Kevin is being asked to recuse himself from facebook case because he's like best friends with facebook I, AP I wrote a column almost two years ago. Now, arguing that conservatives were trying to redefine. Any conservative identified person having any unwanted outcome on a social network, right? So bias is your name was higher than mine in search results. Bias is used suggested that I follow a Democrat and not a Republican right, and if you take action on your policies that apply to everyone against me a conservative that is biased against conservatives, right. So and by the way I have to say this has been hugely successful because we've talked about it. How many minutes now and the longer that these discussions. Discussions. Go on. They just sort of refi people's minds. The idea that there really is a vast conspiracy to silence conservative speech because he's networks are so big millions of conservatives are having experiences like this every day, and now there is an ideology that is basically a religion for them to attach to, which is although Silicon Valley liberals are out to get. Reason I wanted to talk about the conservative side show, which in many ways was a circus is it feels like the notion that we should be punitive to the companies or mad at the company's. Bipartisan, right we were. We were not looking at a hearing where the Democrats were on the attack. Republicans are saying we love. Apple. We're looking at hearing where they were. Everyone was mad. There are a couple of exceptions to that. There were a couple of I think sensenbrenner and a few other folks were like look we want to be clear. Big is not bad. We just WANNA make sure we're not punishing you for your success, but you were like almost entirely, right? Yeah. I. Mean I. think that's it's important to. To capture that mood like Jeff Bezos Mark Zuckerberg, Tim, Cook soon. Darpa, try they usually get to finish whatever sentence they start saying. Right. They're not used to being interrupted. Their thoughts are usually like you know they get to live in complete sentences and people take them seriously here in five in intervals, they were interrupted almost every time they started speaking to be told that they were wrong that they were filibuster at one point Sicily said stop thinking is for the questions. We can just assume they're all good questions. They. Were getting yelled at and they're going yell that about a variety of things that were pretty specific. So you kind of in your kind of structure here. The first one was controlling distribution. What did you hear as a hearing went on the indicated to that? The committee had a case here? I think the apple's APP store is one thing you know charging thirty percent cuts on certain things is just controlling an APP store. It's the same thing with Amazon's marketplace. They can inherently in control what gets placed and what gets sold and you know if they want to play with search results on Amazon, they can do that, and then on facebook and Google, it's not just like products and software that's information. And it could be information when it's like Google. Google. Stealing yelps, texture views right in putting those in its little info boxes in search queries in facebook if facebook is just like an. Mation, distribution platform and. It can decide Algorithm Mickley. Knowingly. What people get to see this bution was very keen to the committee's hearing yesterday and they pointed out different aspects in which you know each company exhibited that kind of behavior. So the one that will you bring up apple? We wrote about this, say there's much emails. Apples document production is just one hundred and thirty pages of unrelated emails and whatever order see it's like scan through it. So there's a lot of little stories in there. There's one about right to repair and apple realizing it needed to repair. By watching PR people operate by reading their emails journalists. Very entertaining. They're like we had a break like here's our strategy. Here's we're GONNA. That's all in there. You can look at it, but there's a lot about the APP store itself and how they're going to use the mechanics of the APP store to control their platform, and it started at the beginning like the first emails in this production from twenty, ten there. From Phil, Schiller Steve Jobs saying, are we GONNA? Let Amazon Sell Books in the kindle store. Store, it felt like I saw an Amazon ad was hard to watch this hard to watch this ad where a person's reading a book on an iphone in the kindle APP in the pick up an android phone keep reading. He's like literally like it was hard to watch like Schiller's at home like pain what a customer is having an experience that good it really just. Heart and so he's like it was hard to watch. You fours Steve Jobs. They're like we gotta shut it down jobs is the bookstore will be the only bookstore on the APP. Store. That's the way it's going to be everyone's gotta used to it. We know that restricting payments will hurt other things, but that's what we're doing and they started there in two thousand ten and they pulled it out, and then that ladders up into everything that we've seen with, hey, ladders up into the analysis group showing up to. Apple, can pay them to say that there's independent study has revealed. Everybody has a thirty percent cut. It has landed up into Tim Cook, forwarding. He gets a letters from developers that are in this direction. It's like apples breaking my heart and he just like Ford's it. Tim, Cook forwards that email to filter credit eighty, just as thoughts like amazing like they are constantly thinking about the APP store as a mechanism of control for the platform in the leverage and other deals. So the other one was apple is this Amazon one which I have very mixed feelings on saying that this is bad or legal I'm curious for all of your thoughts famously. Did, not have the prime video APP on the Apple TV and all these other places apple, Amazon came to a deal. There's an entire presentation in this production like the slide deck of how the deal is going to work. Apple got to be the preferred seller of its own product. So third parties cancel. Apple. Products, Amazon pages, they got. They have a custom by flow. They've custom product pages, all the stuff in return. Amazon got a lower commission on the APP store and gets to Selatan products which no. No like you can rent a movie from the Amazon APP on the Apple TV, no one else gets to it in one world. This is just pure platform collision, right? Apple cut VIP deal for big companies because it wanted something and you could say this is legal in another world. It's like this is how deals work apple something valuable. Amazon s something valuable and they came to a conclusion wherever made more money and quite frankly the consumer experience platform has got better. How do you read that? Casey? That is good and fair analysis of it. I. Think I did read slightly more scandalous. Tones into it in part because apple would never acknowledge that some developers are more important to it than others even though if you assume that that's true, I think maybe one of the things that's frustrating about it is there is no transparency accountability around which developers get sweetheart deals is that once you hit a certain threshold of revenue will cut your price. Why couldn't they extend that deal to everyone right? Or is it just if we withhold something that seems particularly valuable, we can eventually drag you to the table. Table, which is sort of what seems like happened here. I think in all cases, what I'm always looking for is the accountability, right like and some sense of of equitable treatment of developers and I understand the guys are always going to get the best treatment, but it can that be publicly visible. Can it be acknowledged and there'd be routes for others to achieve that same level of success and treatment, and that I'll just seems missing here. Did you buy Tim Co? He said it twice. It was obviously A. Glimmer, of sympathy for all four CEOS. There is a lot of reporting that they had spent months preparing for this hearing like being grilled there, they'd hire outside law firms. They. Practiced they all clearly had soundbites memorized in none of them. Got To say him because it kept getting interrupted. Tim Cook had this one where he is like if we're the gatekeepers, the gates are open wider than ever. We've gone from five hundred. APPS to one point seven, he said like. A whole speech. and. The thing is there's fierce competition for developers. They don't like our store can do for android the windows. For xbox and PS. Four. Which I was like the idea that adobe is going to be like we don't want to be on the IPAD. Here's PS. Four Photoshop is insanity to me. I'm going to build a spreadsheet. APP. For the five. That's how frustrated with Tim Cook. To that ring. True to you I. Mean, there's no, it does not ring true. There is a, there is a duopoly. In the United States when it comes to smartphones, iphones have majority share in the United States and you can't say, well, you know there's there's a rogue fork of android in Malaysia that you could go develop for if you really wanted to and have that come across as a credible argument to Americans. Right it is. Natural for any monopolist to spend most of its time, arguing that it is much smaller and much less consequential as as you think it is and they're essentially always asking you to ignore what is in front of your face, which is that they are the giant. They are in control. What they say goes, and it doesn't matter which small businesses get hurt along the. The. Way I would point out that the contact and we're gonNA talk about earnings eventually. But the context for that is apple had its biggest third quarter ever this month, their revenues went up eleven percent year over year, they're making obviously making billions of dollars in their services revenue, which is a lot of the narrative around the APP stores increasing that services line. Also went up. I think it was thirteen billion. So you're right. They're very big in their earnings the day after the hearing did nothing. To reduce that impression. I want to switch to Amazon a little bit McKenna. You really focused Amazon was basis first time up there. They came at him a lot about marketplace. How did you think that went I think it went pretty good. I. Think. John Paul specifically was just like killer her questions with breakout star. Yeah. She was just like killer and she's the representative for. SEATTLE. So this is where Amazon is right. So she just like killed it and. And I think there were a couple of instances in the documents and in questioning yesterday that really pulled important things out there was like testimony from one bookseller who was like, yeah. We just can't sell a category of books and we don't know why Amazon doesn't let us do that just like testimony like that or even when it comes to like acquisitions, the ring acquisition especially, I wrote about that today through the documents and how. They said, this is for market position. This is a for technology, your talent or anything. We just bought this and that's something that base said again, yesterday he was just very clear. It's like, yeah, we do buy things market position, which is like so insane just here like the richest person in the world. But like, yeah, we're buying market position. It's just what happens. That's another one I have mixed feelings right, and by the way, people should read McKenna story because those documents have just a very funny breakdown like the pros and cons of buying. Buying ring in many of the cons like what if this turns into nest, which if you're just the verge cast listeners like it's just like the Keyword Bingo, but it's fine to say, we're buying market position like this isn't the best product out there, but it's the category of video. doorbells is not huge, right? So to by the the market leader in video doorbells is maybe the most rational use of the money. What is the problem that you think the committee was trying to show an address sense of we're just going to market position. Pointing out, they can just do whatever they want and how casual it is, and there really isn't. It's really funny to read an email like that, and we could buy it or we could just copy it or are. We could just watch. You know that was one of the emails that base from someone. Those are just three options you know and it's like just pick and choose you know. Pointed out like a lot. Just that email itself really pointed out just how easy it is for them. They used a lot of that time history to talk about copycat behaviors and to talk about just like you know buying up competitors and it just seeing that all in one little e mail having to do with the ring was like really i. think it was really kind of I opening and especially like useful for the committee. So Amazon got hit a lot for the data collection side of it of copying competitors. bezos did not seem to have great answers there. Right. So that's the. The thing they got in trouble with this. There is that Wall Street. Journal article from like April where employees were literally like, yeah. We dip into data and we use that to guide our own private label products and everybody was like Whoa and Amazon basins. Yesterday said, well, we do have a policy that bans that but giant pointed out yesterday. It's like, okay. So what's your enforcement look like you can have the policy, but like if you don't enforce it, then it's like meaningless. And then yesterday I. Think Paul was like, can you give me a yes or no answer? Do you dip into data and he's like I can't I can't give you. Yes or no, and we're just like we're looking into it. The story had anonymous sources. So that isn't very helpful to us. You know what I mean. So that was one of the main things and that Wall Street Journal article and I think it's the same kind of examples in the committee's documents. They point out specific examples like car trunk, organizers of all things. It's like weird little products like Amazon's like this is a little hot. Maybe we should do that. So I, I think. I, think they made a good case yesterday. Yesterday on that. Yeah. I mean bezos brought up that Wall Street Journal, Article himself twice, and he was like, well, your policy against it. But I can't guarantee never happened. Then there is a strange just didn't come across clear I. Think I know what the committee was trying to get at their like US aggregate seller data when there's only three sellers and then only to sellers? Yes, I. Think what they're getting at is when you're down to the aggregate data of two companies, you heard effectively looking at individual data. What is the problem? They're like the I get what you're doing. You're just reducing the denominator to get to one, but like it, why is that particular problem? Right? Well, none of these. Dipping into individual seller data and looking at aggregate data. That's not a legal. There is no law. This is all voluntary of Amazon. So they have a voluntary policy where like we can't do individual seller data, but they say nothing against aggregate and aggregate what you're getting at eight. Here you is. Does the same thing if it's just like some goofy little product they. They bring up pop stock. It's all the time before pop tops in a moment. Right? There's only like one pop. So company like you know pop soggy, it was kind of an innovative product. It's like well, if there's only two of them and use the aggregate data, you you you have everything you need to know you know about that product line looking aggregate. If that's what you decide to qualify as do you as you're looking through the other Amazon documents and other stuff. So anything jump out at you is something the committee was trying to prove or get at. The questioning seemed very focused on. Like are you using the state at a copy products? Are you buying things? You shouldn't buy. There's one question which I did not understand why came up about DMC. Take downs on twitch and Jeff as just had this look of panic in his eyes. He's like I don't know man I bought Wedge because my kids want to. Do something like that was like the side show stuff, but the real focus here, it just seemed like it was definitely in the marketplace, right? Amazon, everyone came at Amazon for the marketplace. That's what everybody knows him as like they have all these little sides. They got rain. They got Alexa Alexa was one thing too. That was kind of interesting. It's like. Are you buying things like ring to put Alexa into and dislike expand your like Titan Ism as like an Internet Internet connected home. Thing and make that more closed off and walled gardening. That was one thing. But no, it was just focusing on how much power they have to kind of change. What happens in the marketplace to kind of decide what companies in what products are able to come up on the first page of results. You know that's also something that they dug into Google and in something that one of those like themes that kind of ties everything together. We should say they all spend a lot of time talking about counterfeit goods, and why is it Amazon removed? Fake stuff from the platform and how much is it profiting off of you know selling pick rolexes? Is it surprising? The whole foods didn't show up at all they're. Like that is a really massive thing. Amazon owns that. Is it moving into a huge new product category? I think whole foods is not an online marketplace, which was the title of the hearing, not that that restricted anybody from doing anything except that, one of the things Amazon says is we have lots of competition from offline marketplaces, right? Brought up kroger a lot I mean, this is the case he's point. They all made. It seem like they were beset at any moment. They could be crushed by the likes of stop and Shop Right? Like I think the point though was really on the. Digital. Experience Consumers have and like I, don't know Ho-. Foods fits. Into that narrative, especially, because it is itself not dominant like they bought it because you needed to grow in their. Good at that at my question for you on the Amazon stuff was when you think about, we talk about two thirty a lot right like you and I in particular spent a lot time to thirty, which regulates with the platform can do with content. There's not really an equivalent of two thirty for goods on store. Right like there's some case is out there saying like you're liable for what what happens on your online store page, but Amazon doesn't have that like second order of like Messi nece around it that twitter and facebook to with two thirty, I. Mean, it gets invoked a lot for marketplace's, but it's way messier. Well, I just wanted to like this question at counterfeits question about ranking the store like they are even more free than any twitter is to to sort tweets algorithm. Algorithm clear to modern like it just their store. Do you think that they're like that Algorithm transparency? Your wire things ranked. Did you catch a sense that that's where the regulation is GonNa go. So much of the conversation around Amazon really felt like it was individuals sellers being wronged for reasons of Amazon being unresponsive or stealing. It's data. So I don't know it didn't. It didn't seem like a really big focus of the hearing, but it is a huge deal. Yeah. The, digital marketplace frame of this, which is where we have talked to. Cellini. That's where he's going right like facebook and Google very digital. They have like they don't do physical goods. Really. Apple is the APP store. It's all digital goods. Amazon is the one where it's. Front to a lot of physical things, and that is the only place where I can see this regulation needing to make some sort of like major meaningful distinction in I. Didn't see it in the hearing, but I was curious of you caught a glimmer of it. I'm not positive that they have to make a huge distinction there like depending on what they come up with because. So much of this is about their companies and whatever product they produced. The issue is more or less whether or not they're being surveilled and unfairly by targeted and crushed by that data surveillance. All right. We have gone for forty minutes. We should take a quick break. I said I wasn't going to go by company and it happens. So we should come back and talk with facebook Ango. We'll be right back. This is advertiser content.

A concept is nothing new Sir Thomas more. I introduced the theory five hundred years ago. But we keep looking for that community identity stability of aldous Huxley's Utopia and not finding it Americans are the unhappiest they've been in decades, and we're increasingly lonely whereas in a utopia. Everyone belongs to everyone else. In nineteen forty-three, the psychologist Abraham. maslow's developed a theory of Utopia. One that allows total self determination in basic terms. maslow's theory says that in Utopia, we decide for ourselves, what we need and how we're GONNA get it in Huxley's Utopia citizens always get what they want and don't want what they can't get.

But digs into what is really going on underneath the surface, and that's what the weeds is all about I. Matthew Yglesias. Weeds podcast here on the box meeting podcast network. This is podcast for people who really want to understand the policy debates and policy issues that shaping our world. We've seen now more than ever like how relevant policy is to our actual lives, but so much in the news isn't focused on really understanding and explaining detail way if that sounds good to you, join us for the weeds, every Tuesday and Friday to find out what's going on why matters and what we can do about it. You could download the weeds on apple spotify or wherever else you get your podcasts. Tracy. When it comes to facebook I turn to you. FACEBOOK is patience consumer of startups as what we've learned. Yeah. But you said something to me yesterday was interesting, which is everyone else's problems are forward looking and it feels like facebook's problems are actually in the past break for people explain what you mean. Yeah. So when Congress is looking at any trust with respect to these four companies for three of them, it's It's sort of about the marketplaces that their operating right now with facebook, the question is much more about should we have allowed it to buy serum? Should we have allowed it to buy WHATSAPP and most of the antitrust conversation that was around facebook yesterday was all about that. What did Mark Zuckerberg know about Instagram, and when did he know it? We wrote a story based on some documents that the house released yesterday. In which facebook has clearly identified instagram as a competitor. In at least some ways and wants to go after it and knock it off the table, and so that's kind of where the focuses their facebook and Burke did get a lot of other questions yesterday, but it tended to be much more about content moderation and things that don't have a lot to do with antitrust. So there was weird section where they asked the face. Face Research APP in the novel, Vpn? Any kind of got lost well, explain what happened and I'm curious reactions. Yeah. So facebook has a bunch of nifty tech tools to figure out what's trending which APPs or the kids using, and so that can essentially have an early warning system if it needs to consider acquiring something or more likely in these days, go out clone it. and. So Zuckerberg was asked about the way that the company uses these systems and if they are anti competitive I, think you know traditional antitrust law probably would not say copying an APP feature is anti competitive, but could lobby written in the future about it shirt I. Think the one that caught me was I mean, this is what I'm. McKenna's points from earlier is like one of the themes here is, are you so dominant that you can collect data that's unfair and then use that to crush or killer competitors, and definitely bought the Inaba VPN to do it. That's true. Now, when I've asked executives at facebook about this, what they'll say is they don't get surprised anymore. When you have three point, one billion people using your apps around the world. You know what links they're sharing, you know what they're talking about. And so you're not going to need some kind of specialized tool to know that WHATSAPP is really taking off. Right. So they would argue that, yes, these tools were useful to them, but you know at their scale, they know what's popular now, which doesn't really seem like addresses, the problem is reached. The fact that we're so big that we're all knowing is maybe not the defense that they sometimes presented as so here's what I didn't get. I thought, Zuckerberg I want to the instagram. What's about who's issues, but on the facebook research front, the data front, they him about this APP facebook research, which you were giving to teens. They were deploying with an enterprise certificate that story broke apple revoke the certificate, and all of facebook's internal APPs went dark, and this is a scandal story after story about it, they went on for two days. So I can I, don't recall that APP? Just how he you know, he remembers the day that all facebook's internal APPS went down and people couldn't go to the cafeteria. I would agree I found that answer. Extremely, ed? Persuasive. that. Do you think that was like actually strategic for him to be like, I, don't know and then come back later and correct the record I do remember when that happened I. Mean. I really don't know I mean also you know during a six hour hearing, it's also possible that you just you get flustered or you miss here something or or something because. Yeah. As as you say, I'm sure he remembers the day that apple turned off their internal APPS I mean. Honestly. Seems like an opportunity to talk about apple's market power, and the fact that you know a day of work canceled at facebook because apple got mad. But I think most of the CEO's didn't go into yesterday a wanted to pick fights with each other. It was kind of sad that they didn't. I was Kinda hoping that Tim Cook take a shot at soccer burger. Point that the other two APP platforms I was expecting it. It was there. It was. There was all there. So cellini ended and he ended the whole meeting with closing statement. He said, some of these companies didn't get broken out. They all need to get regulated in the off too much power that some of them I. don't these breaking up apple. What sort of break. Right like. The division get sent into the corner thing about what it's done. Right. Does should spin out the finder team I've always wanted to. A clean is always that they want to. They want the APP store to be separate from the IPHONE. Basically, that's the thing I always hear. Can't break I. Think you can write some strong regulations but not playing you're on store, right. But like Elizabeth Warren's point was it's cleaner if it's two companies, but it's still a gigantic remedy that I don't think there's a lot of like like consumer or public opinion is going to walk into an Apple Cup I think you'll radio at marketplace. It seems very clear that we says some of them she broken up he is talking about facebook. I have a twenty percent conference level. He might be talking with Google and Youtube as well. But if he's going to say some of the need to get broken up like it's facebook, did you hear anything yesterday that supported that conclusion or Saudi stocks I? MEAN HE I don't remember which Republican it was, but he was like the Obama FTC looked at this and they said it was minding love. Obama. Right. Like. Why would we go back in time to relook at I? Mean, there is a belief and I mean. Somebody who thinks there could be a lot of benefit in instagram and WHATSAPP being different companies from facebook. And the reason you ask. So many questions about that acquisition as you're making the case that it never should have been approved in the first place, and so now you need to remedy it. So that was actually like the entire thrust of the argument against facebook yesterday. I think, you could probably make just as good a case that Amazon after spin out aws, but lawmakers chose not to make that case. Yeah. I think that also gets into. Politics of the acquisition of the time. To his credit is like nobody knew instagram would actually be a success like we made it a success. It didn't happen by itself. I, don't know if the lawmakers. By award, these guys said, but I don't know that he actually made that case very persuasively. and. Who knows I mean? That's like anything could have happened. Right? Cram could've stayed independent and rapidly grown and overtaken facebook like that's something that could have happened. It could have kind settled into a middle zone like snapchat or twitter seems more likely to me although I think probably would have been bigger than those two but. You're never going to know I mean it is true that facebook gave Mike and Kevin it instagram enormous resources. A lot of the reasons why Mike and Kevin sold was because running tiny startup that's blowing up is absolutely exhausting Mike. Krieger. was dragging his laptop all around San. Francisco. Because the servers were melting at all times of the day whenever Justin Bieber. Posted like the site stopped working and they really we need help. Finding a person who can quickly fix this? So we don't have to like that is the reason that they were entertaining these offers and wanted to sell it. So that is also thing that happened. Do you think that that same kind of argument or approach can apply to what's up? What's up basically did not come up yesterday and all the focus on Instagram, but that's the other one, right? Yeah, and we know weirdly a lot less about that acquisition I. Think it's because people in America just have so much less love for what's APP generally. That, it's never seemed as important. What happened to WHATSAPP as what happens to instagram even though WHATSAPP, is used, you know way more, it probably has way more engagement even than instagram does so I don't know why that didn't come up as often. We know there was a competitive bidding war for that as well. Goule. Wanted it as well. You know Mark Zuckerberg made them an offer, they can't refuse. Do you think everyday Google's we should've spent more money on what's whatsapp like this could have been solved. Should have, but Google has been placed under an ancient curse that prevents them from ever making the right decision about any social product. So it was doomed never to happen. It's fun looking through the documents and watching them casually say they should buy facebook dot com. Yeah, that. Point. That is how they talk like the window into these executives just casually being like we should just this thing or maybe not, or we should just copied ourselves and kill it before it gets any traction like it's repeated over and over again last facebook question. This one is like harder to parse because I. There's a chance, it's October is just joking around but. But. He's in many of these emails. He's like the thing about startups, as you can always buy them, which I think the committee thinks is a smoking gun, right? Like facebook's entire plan is to buy the competition to get the data from wherever they get it to say, oh, man, this apps popping, we just buy it and kill it before it competes with us. I. Think he actually said at one point. That's a joke. Yes, he did and I believe that you know it was two thousand, twelve, right? He was probably still in his mid twenties. At that point, the company was a lot smaller like people were joking around like there's more loose talk when companies are younger and I do think. It was it was part of that. I think the more interesting question becomes. Let's say facebook is telling the truth about everything. Let's say they thought it was going to be a successful acquisition, but they never knew it was gonna big as it became today and they invested in it and it got super big. Okay. Well, now, it's as big as it is. Should they be allowed to keep? Keep it or should they be forced to spend it out and if you're GONNA force them to spin it out. What's the argument that you'RE GONNA. Make about why one question that I have a lot is clearly the referral they're gonNa make, and it seems like if you don't have some other reason, we've heard hints that there's some other reason, the FTC scrutinize this that will eventually be revealed. But what you're saying is the antitrust standard at the time, the Consumer Hartman stand, which is still our standard. Says, you have to prove prices will go up both products for free. You're screwed. Right? There's nothing to review because you're not gonNA prove prove that free products are gonNA get more expensive. I think it's pretty unfair if you change the standard and you go back in time and say you missed that standard. So I think there has to be something else there. Well, what was the standard by which at and T. was broken up? Right? Like presumably at and T. didn't used to be that big, and then it just got really big and then they broke it up at least. That's the thumbnail understanding I have of that break-up. Well, yeah. But then reformed itself. Right. But because of lax antitrust regulation, right? Like it wasn't a naturally occurring phenomenon that all those APPS got back to the other or was that just sort of like inattention to capitalism It's like in the seventies and eighties. This is Tim moves book the cursive bigness in the seventies and eighties Robert Bork I can't talk about Robert on this podcast. Are we doing this right now. Robert was very influential judge Appellate Judge Federal Appellate? Judge. And basically moved the antitrust law to the consumer harm standard as part of a movement called and economics. A whole thing Robert. Bork. Mostly famous because he was not appointed. He was nominated Supreme Court by Reagan but they leaked video tape rental history, and then he didn't get nominated and that is where the expression getting bork's comes from. This is all true Netflix's still has to abide by videotape data privacy act is a whole. This is all true when facebook and Netflix had some partners, Nansen? Partnership. To. Automatically share your net flicks, watch history to facebook. They're like pending the change of this law which we are working on Robert Bork. He haunts us all. I'm sorry, I can't believe this much. Yeah I. think that's just like the law changed in the in the seventies and eighties, the standard change. The conversation right now is a very much about changing it back months and months ago, pre pandemic, we had an economist from I. Think it was Nyu Thomas Philippon came on the show, and he was like look you have this natural ab test going on in the world where the European Union when it formed was like, how do we get an economy like America's? So, we'll just take their competition policies pretty good, and at the same time we changed consumer harm standard. So everything you're seeing the EU is basically our old competition antitrust standard in. You can see how active they are in everything. Here's a new consumer welfare standard. Whether you believe, this is actually a functional Ab test given. The state of both governments is up for debate, but that was his point I thought. It was spare can say.
Key issues as big tech CEOs face Congress
"As we're talking right now and over the last couple hours, and just because of the show, I have not had a chance to listen. There's another Very vital hearing that's taking place where the heads of the elite big tech companies Are facing questions from this panel again, you know, with on the make up of obviously Republicans and Democrats, Doug you first and then John, you chime in next How significant is this? That we're seeing. Ah, Apple, and we're seeing Google. And we're seeing Facebook and not just members of those companies, the leaders of those companies facing significant questions. On the power they wield and the fact that the power is seemingly on ly getting bigger by the hour. Well, I think it's very significant on and it's a good thing, of course, that the top officers of the the companies are appearing and responding to these questions, but it's certainly a measure. Off the power that these firms Ah wheeled today and of course, it's a power over the content of the public debate because they have such a gate, keeping Ah ah force. They are such a gate keeping force to determine you know what what can and can't get distributed and that people should have can have access to. And of course, there's all kinds of pressure on them to the prohibit to certain things and to prevent hate speech. And what you know what some people would characterize this hate speech. Others would you know, would characterize as ah. Ah, speaking truth to power and so on. And these are very difficult questions. Ah, and there's danger both in them doing too little and too much at the same time. There's no question that these firms And the technology that they've done so much to advance, you know, has has revolutionized public access and the ability for voices to be heard in a way that surely is Beneficial or potentially beneficial, and we don't want to kill that Golden goose, either. So it's it's an important and challenging issues. John what you think Well, pursuing toe what we began talking about with Attorney General Bar. There seems to be too many speeches and not enough listening. So just in one example. This is ostensibly to talk about the power that this big tech firms have. And I think the more profound problem is miss information that is sent Purposefully, And this is in the news as well, often specifically by foreign agents, be they from Russia or China or Iran or North Korea or other hostile actors. Both state and non state. And yet what seems to be stated, you know by some of the Republicans, they're the aforementioned Jim Jordan. When he had his time said, I'll just cut to the chase big checks out to get conservatives and went into a rant about how the big tech firms are trying to censor conservatives. Not meant in his residence. By the way, John, you know, but yeah, not but not mentioning that about seven out of the top 10. You know, top trending either site. Individuals or institutions on Facebook right now are conservatives. Fox News? Other legislators and you know who have been thwarted his just mid medical misinformation and as an example, the president's son, Donald Trump Jr. You know, Pushing forward already debunked medical information about the cove in 19 and so, you know, I don't think that I think that that issue was not Germaine at all. And it's proven by the readership and by where people go online. But it's once again in this particular instance where someone is trying to disprove a political point, as opposed to really contend what the real issue is and the power That these companies have both in the marketplace in the marketplace of ideas.
Patriots star: Opting out of season was "best decision for my family"

$600 A Week Unemployment Benefits End Tomorrow
"You know that thing where you know something bad is coming and your senses just kind of start going in slow motion, but you can't really do anything about it. Yet that except the economy, we have been spending this week looking at the different ways that six hundred dollars a week. An extra unemployment benefits going away next week is going to play out today. Slice is people in the GIG economy. Who as marketplace's Mitchell Hartman reports are likely to feel the pain most acutely. Jennifer Jesse has a one woman sat and act tutoring business in Woodbridge Virginia, heading into the spring. She had lots of work lined up. Then cove nineteen hit in mid March, and the cancellation started that when people would contact out. I don't think there's going to be an sat act and with money being so tight I would hate for you to waste your money for incomes down from about one thousand a week to less than two hundred hundred, and as a solo business owner. She wasn't sure where to turn it. Never really clear what I'm able to apply for, so I started with PPO. She didn't get one, but she did. Get unemployment through the federal program that opens up benefits to independent contractors and GIG workers. She's received about two thousand dollars. That kind of money is a godsend in this pandemic shocked economy says Heidi Sheer Holtz at the economic policy. Institute it's been absolutely essential. Ten million or more people who wouldn't ordinarily qualify for state benefits are getting them now. Now the Federal Government picking up the TAB and adding six hundred dollars a week, but that's about to run out rear talking about a pretty mammoth drop in income, if the six hundred dollars to expire fire, take the example of Austin Texas Theatrical Technical Directors Crawford. He's been able to make it through so far unemployment, but when the extra six hundred from the feds disappears I don't know yeah that Levy at four hundred a month with Texas unemployment benefits, which is impossible to live on. He says he won't have enough to cover basic expenses or keep his studio equipment till theaters opened again.
What will out-of-work Americans do without that extra $600 per week?
"We begin this week at the end of July in a year. Ain't none of us. GonNa Forget by pointing out the enduring reality of vis economy, thirty two and a half million Americans aren't working. They are trying to get by on expanded federal unemployment benefits expanded in who can get him gig workers, the self-employed people who can't go to work because school is closed, or because somebody in their household is sick. They all get them. Those benefits are also expanded in how much people can get the extra six hundred dollars a week? You've been hearing so much about here and elsewhere. You've also been hearing. I'm sure that the last of those checks go out in like a week. Unless Congress and the White House decide to do something. Marketplace's Mitchell Hartman gets is going. Back, in March Austin, Texas was gearing up for the annual south by southwest. Festival and everyone theater folks waiters, bartenders car share drivers was about to be working round the clock for a whole month, and making a significant chunk of their annual pay, then covid nineteen hit, the city announced that was going to be shut down. It just pulled the plug out from under every day Stephen Pruitt's lighting, designer and videography. videography he had gigs setup for south by southwest, and then he was going to China with Texas, tap dance troupe, instead myself and everyone else just lost every job that we've had before the pandemic. He'd been out of luck. Freelance workers aren't typically eligible for jobless benefits. But Washington made them eligible and added six hundred dollars. A week to everybody's on employment checks. It's been the difference between you know my rant. Versus, not if Washington doesn't extend the six hundred dollar week, pandemic payments come August pruitt will be getting a Texas sized unemployment check of two hundred a week. Like at that point. I'm probably still paying my rent, but I may have to talk to my bank about Can I defer my car loan? Okay? I can still survive, but now I'm going to be figuring out how to prioritize which bills to. To pay all over the country, people in states with comparatively low jobless benefits like taxes will face a fifty to seventy five percent. Pay Cut at a time when getting a new job isn't necessarily easy or safe. Says Andrew Staedtler at the century. Foundation, and that means people worried about losing their housing having to move in with relatives. You're not really be able to get by on unemployment benefits. Staedtler says. The federal supplement will suck twenty five billion dollars a week out of the economy. Money people spend right away on essentials. Rent food transportation. The money is also keeping some small businesses alive like an assemblies bakery in Kansas City. where she is cooked server and businessmen. When the state shutdown she got on pandemic on employment. It's gone towards shop expenses I. Mean I still have to pay rent? Even when I'm close and utilities, and all that I haven't had any revenue really when the state re opened, she was no longer eligible for unemployment, so she reopened fully masked takeout only and then Monday I woke up with flu symptoms and went to the doctor I'm presumptive positives shows quarantining now and her shop. Shop is closed if she doesn't start getting unemployment payments soon. She's not sure she'll be able to reopen. I'm Mitchell Hartman for marketplace exactly how much spending power that extra six hundred bucks gets. It varies a whole lot of course depending on where you are colleagues at the APM.

About three minutes after the ambulance arrived. A paramedic in the back of the ambulance took Floyd's pulse and instructed Lane was onboard to begin CPR. Of course, that happened before this.

At this point, I get it. It is extraordinarily difficult job and you can sit there and say I'm playing hindsight. I've never done this and that And you're right. I've never done it. It is a hard job.

Him for three minutes show Vin Elaine continue restraining A paramedic walks away than in sense of urgency when he or she doesn't get a pulse. Adam. How in the hell was any that defendable?

Bolton slams Trump's approach to world leaders as "naive and foolish"
"John Bolton and a man who was NASA security visor to President Trump is with us. I'm holding his book in my Hand Right now book that just sold 100,000 copies in its first week, the room where it happened. John. Thank you so much for your time, and our time is short. So I want to try to go as quick as we can, but also give you the opportunity to give thorough answers and again. Thanks for coming on me right in the book extensively. Absolutely. Thank you, sir. You're accessing the book, and you just make the point that the president is incapable of this job that he isn't willing To put in the work, and it's all about himself. I'm sure you are aware of some of that belief before you came to the White House. I'm sure you saw it fairly quickly. Why not leave right away? Once you realize the president is Curious. Well, I have certainly heard the criticisms before I joined the White House on. But I'd also had a number of conversations with Trump before the election during the transition during the first year, I recount some of them in in the book. And he knew what my views were. He knew my approach to the major crises that I thought we were going to face. So hey, gave me the offer, so I assumed he had paid attention to what I said, and I felt Despite all the criticism that we could make it work, I felt the United States was facing ah, number of very severe threats and challenges around the world. I thought after eight years of the Obama administration, we were In jeopardy and a number of places and I thought I could make a contribution. The book really is the story of whether I turned out to be right or wrong about that. But You know, it's Ah Ah, What when you're in when you're trying to do the right thing, trying to give advice to the president. Ah, and work on policy matters. You continually hope. For the best outcome and you know, you understand a lot of your recommendations are going to be rejected. That's the way it works. I used to say I was the national security advisor. I was not the national security decision maker. Everything's jump in just because just because our time is short of it once you realise that he wasn't paying attention to the briefings and and the way he was talking Two fellow leaders in his deference to Putin and Erdogan. Others wasn't there a party, they said. I just shouldn't be a part of this. He's never going to change and I want to get out of here. Sure that's the point out is coming to everybody's got to make that decision for himself. I've been criticized sort of on both ends of this by people who said you should have resigned after the 1st 30 days of the 1st 60 days or, you know, pick pick a number. And I've been criticized by people who have said you had a duty not to resign. You had a duty to stay in until the very end. I suppose there's a big alumni Association of former senior advisors and office holders in the Trump administration. I know a lot of them went through the same kind of decision that I had two. It's a very personal thing. How How long do you put up with the sorts of things you've asked about? I don't think there's a perfect answer. I considered resigning several times before I ultimately did. I don't. I don't think you ought to resign in a fit of pique. I think you ought to make the best effort you can hit history will judge that That's what I can say. But I think people made these decisions in good faith.

"Yesterday in the one o'clock hour Bob Kroll was her feature gassed in machines on right now to talk about this the the interview rishi thanks for coming on give me give me from when you're in the moment when you look back at it the most notable part of the interview the the some of some of the comments of Bob Kroll made that to you has so much been a journalist for a long time most news worthy well I think it's partly when he was trying to describe the union's role and the four different I think he said mayoral terms that he was part of the negotiations over the years with the union contract and I thought that was notable and that's part of the reason I actually wanted him to come on was to help people really understand what is the role of the union because I watched for weeks now as a lot of people are blaming him for my city burning down and I'm telling you it's my city because I live in it you and I work in it and I know there are a lot of layers to this is a dynamic situation and I don't know that you can put the blame for what happened on the weekends during the week of may twenty fifth on any one doorstep and I know you can't put it on his because that's just not his role so when he described the role of the union the negotiations from his past with past administrations mayors city council and then that he does want to be it sounds to me like part of the solution I asked him if he's visited the site I asked him did he visit thirty eighth in Chicago and he said he didn't really visited he went by it and that was interesting for me because he probably would you help me I don't know but my guess is he knew it might have been a spectacle if he had shown up but I think it was important that he at least drove by it and that's why I asked about that a number of times with me and a number of times this last week when he did a series of interviews he was asked if he believes there are systemic racism within the police department which then affects people of color in Minneapolis he we he adamantly said no you'll have said on the station many times as a person of color that you have face racism in the city of Minneapolis is it then fair to say that you don't agree with Bob Kroll on his point I think the question was is there systemic racism in the police department I think there is systemic racism in our city I think there is in our entire state I believe it is so insisted that a lot of people don't really understand it you know questions Chad that I've gotten in my mother has gotten throughout our lifetimes where you from and when we say Dinah accessory grew up that's where she still lives people come back at us with more questions will know where you from and I know where they're going and I I kind of don't want to play ball so finally I will say if you mean my country of origin I was born in Sri Lanka but I'm an American so like it it was that kind of commentary that I'm talking about it's as a specific they'll because Bob pushes back and says of those separately there is not systemic racism in the Minneapolis police department I adamantly disagree I think the data is over well me where do you stand do you think there's systemic racism in the Minneapolis police department how you would be treated compared to how I would be treated it's an interesting question because I think the black Minneapolis resident is treated differently from you and for me I have not been pulled over because I'm brown I was actually murdered at gun point in twenty thirteen and the Minneapolis police officers and other members of the system connected to juvenile court that dealt with me we're very respectful I think Bob can have an opinion that there's not systemic racism you can believe there is I mean I'm probably leaning closer to you on this because I think this city there's an issue with systemic racism in the city I mean I take it to even the renaming of lake Calhoun we renamed lake Calhoun because Calhoun was bad well the name we replace it with is from a native peoples and also did some things other native people but some people don't have issues with that so there's racism everywhere is it systemic absolutely in our city in our state is only happening at the police department no I think when you have mayors and Cassidy council people who aren't necessarily passing the laws in the ordinances that are fair to all of us you know when it comes to getting loans when it comes to other parts of living in what we have to do it it goes very deep and this is where a state it is a dynamic and very layered problem why is my deep blue black is not just on the police it really isn't

Back to the story on May Twenty Eighth Nineteen Ninety eight forty year old brynn Hartman shot and killed her husband of ten years forty nine year old. Fill in the wake of the puzzling tragedy. Police police did their best to piece together. What exactly happened between the couple? It was clear that Brian had shot her husband before turning the gun on herself however a her motivations for doing so were less apparent. Toxicology reporting from the coroner's Office Lee revealed that Brown's blood alcohol content at the time of death. Breath was point twelve percent much higher than the legal limit for drivers in California which is point zero eight percent the report also showed trace amounts of cocaine McCain and burn system. Chief Coroner Craig Harvey explained that Brin ingested the drug around five hours prior to her death if this timeline is correct it's just that brand began using coke shortly after she arrived home from her night out. The coroner's office stated that the alcohol and cocaine most definitely intensified suffi- the others effects but stopped short of directly connecting the drug use with her actions that night. The toxicology report further revealed. That Bryn was on the prescription drug zoloft. When she died harvey called Solo off a wild card as we discussed last week brin started taking zoloft after her son son psychiatrists gave her a starter? Kit of the drug typically prescribed for depression. The drug is also used to treat obsessive compulsive disorder and panic disorder. It seems that Brian was diagnosed with none of these conditions. which makes it hard to understand why she was given the drug? In the first place Harvey's classification of Zoloft as a wildcard reflects how little was known about it in nineteen ninety eight at the time but not much was understood about the effects of mixing antidepressants with other substances. Although most prescription medications did and still do warn patients to avoid void alcohol at the time Brin was taking it Zola. Packaging did include a warning to stay off alcohol. A warning typically reinforced by Prescribing Dr. But Brin had been given a starter kit of the drug and as far as we can tell was never officially given a prescription for the antidepressant. It's therefore therefore difficult to know if she had been clearly warned of the dangers of mixing Zoloft with alcohol. If she had she may have been more cautious about her intake. Take of both substances a two thousand fourteen study by David. B Minks and Andrew her timer and published in the International Journal of risk and Safety D in medicine tested. The effects of mixing alcohol with antidepressants like Zoloft. The results were alarming and the two hundred and one cases examined. Eighth cases resulted in homicide. Though the sample size is small that still suggests a correlation between acts of violence and the combination nation of alcohol and prescription antidepressants. The results also included instances of attempted murder and suicide the study further show. Oh that fifty. Three percent of subjects displayed memory. Impairment this tracks with Ron Douglas's account of the events would suggest that Brin didn't clearly remember if she'd killed old Phil or not until she returned home to find him. Dead evidence has shown that antidepressants can cause complex flex behavioral effects especially in early treatment and after increase or decrease in dosage given Britain's own disjointed experience on Zoloft. This could help explain her actions on May twenty eighth. According to records Brin began taking zoloft sometime in April of nineteen ninety eight she briefly flee stopped following a medical procedure but resumed at a half dose. Sometime in May though there's no way for us to know for sure it's entirely possible. The combinations of drugs and alcohol in Britain system caused her to lose control. We know that she had several drinks over the course of the evening and had an eaten much if anything. It's fair to say that she was at least tipsy when she arrived home around one. AM given her extremely high blood. Alcohol alcohol reading after death. It's entirely possible that she drink even more after she got home. According to the coroner's toxicology report it's also also likely she ingested cocaine around this time we know that Brin struggles with her addiction. Were a source of friction between her and Phil if he was awake when she got home. It's possible that they thought about her intoxication or about his frequent absences from the family home. If the pair font it's likely likely that bill abandoned the argument go to bed then again perhaps the argument did reach a resolution. Phil found out. That Bryn was drunk and high that night right. He may have even threatened to finally divorce her her judgment impaired by the cocktail of drugs and alcohol in her system. She might have believed that the only way. Hey for her. To stay with her children was to murder her husband. Unfortunately the convenient presence of at least two firearms in the house would have made it only only too easy for Brennan to act on this desperate impulse. The truth is that we will never know exactly what what happened in those fateful missing hours as coroner Craig Harvey pointed out. There were wild cards in play that could have affected Britain's actions in ways we haven't haven't thought of all we know for sure is that Phil and Brynn Hartman's lives were both cut tragically short In the aftermath of their deaths Phil and Brynn surviving family members came together to grieve and say goodbye. Though there was tension engine between the families. The each set aside the anger they felt and the blame they wanted to cast outside. The Chapel photographers waded hoping bane to catch a glimpse of mourners. They were eager for scraps of news in the wake of the sensational murder suicide that had rocked. Hollywood Phil's brother had advised both families to close ranks in the days after the twenty eighth. His hope was that. If the media didn't get any dirt from the Hartman's loved ones then they would simply simply stopped trying but the legacy of Phil and brings death lingered long after the police tape was pulled down at the Encino Bungalow newsradio Co the Sitcom on which fill played a lead role was due to film. It's fifth season just months after his murder but with Phil gone there was an empty seat onset it in the end it was Jon Lovitz. Who had known Phil since his days at the groundlings Improv group in the eighties who stepped in to fill the void he left behind according to Lovett's his new co star? Andy Dick took umbrage with Levinson's sudden role on the show for his part Lovett's still in pain. Following the death of his close friend blamed Dick for brains actions. He thought that Brian had been sober. Until the New Year's Eve party at which dig have given her cocaine though tensions between the two continued to simmer for years. They tried to make peace ace and move on with their lives. However things erupted again in two thousand six neither was ready to forgive or forget about what had been said in the aftermath of Phil's death according to love it when he was having dinner in a Los Angeles restaurant Dick approached him and swiped a drink from the table after downing the drink he told love it? I put the Phil Hartmann Exxon you. You're the next one to die. Lovett's had dick removed from the restaurant restaurant. The following July the two ran into each other at a comedy club after the show love. It's ask Dick to apologize for his tasteless remark mark. He refused incensed love. It's grab Dick by the shirt and slammed his head into the bar. Several Times as people watched in horror you love. It's vowed he would have kept going if a doorman hadn't pulled the pair apart Lovett's fills close friend. One of the homicide aside survivors seemed to still be suffering from the psychological consequences almost ten years later in March of nineteen ninety nine Britons. Brother Gregory Gregory amdahl filed a lawsuit against pharmaceutical giant Pfizer. The suit alleged. That zoloft was the cause of brain and fills debts. Gregory and his lawyers believed that the alcohol and cocaine were irrelevant to her actions and the antidepressant was wholly responsible. visor eventually settled all the matter out of court the debts of Phil and Brynn Hartman shocked their loved ones. Just as much as they shocked the world their love Love Affair Mark so boldly by early passion had become a source of frustration to both of them by the time it reached its deadly climax in nineteen ninety eight throughout their struggles. Both Phil and Brennan seemed to think a solution to their woes was just around the corner. Perhaps they'd hoped to reclaim the passion they had once felt for each other but waiting proved to be fatal mistake proving that sometimes when passion fades others left to do is say goodbye.

She looked to his disinterest in their marriage counseling sessions which she sometimes attended alone and the declining state of their sex life. Around this time she reportedly hired a private investigator to follow Phil on his trips to Catalina island it seems she suspected that her husband and one of his male friends Brit Merrin were having an affair. But by all accounts Brent suspicions never never amounted to anything more than that that incur jealousy though Phil openly talked on late night television interviews about being unable to cheat on bread and because she was so suspicious those close to fill suggests that he never cheated on his wife because he was too good but to the World Phil Bill seemed keen to say it was because he would get caught. It's possible that Phil never had any intention of cheating on brand and that his comments about staying faithful because he didn't want to be caught were just bravado. Part of his funny Guy Act but it was clearly enough to give brand pause ause she may have felt like there was an element of truth to Phil's jokes.

On the Hartman's lives Phil had shared his wolves with some select co-stars on his new show newsradio but to the world was putting on a happy face at the time fills co-star Vicki. Lewis was also in a relationship with an attic actor Nick Nolte. According to Vicki Phil would come into work looking disheveled and exhausted because he had spent the night on his boat rather than at home with Bryn once once he showed up to sit with scratch marks on his face presumably a relic from confrontation with Bryn. Only Vicki knew the truth about the marks however Oh my first he would ask her. How do you do this? But just like Phil. She didn't have an answer at his wit's end and Phil told his mother that if Brennan didn't stop using he was going to take the children and leave. He didn't care if she kept everything else.

You know, it is a dry which. Fans to have moderate your behavior a little bit. Yes. Yes. It does. What was the the main meal? What was the main meat yesterday? Well, elicits mother is Italian ad. So she made manicotti and with homemade sauce. Great. It was very very good. And then there were some meatballs and a little little bit beat follow better sausage too. But the manicotti was there the main show for sure I applaud that we were having a conversation earlier lasagna overrated. Underrated properly rated I still think properly rated I think it gets it gets dismissed because it's not as unique right? People have kind of put it into a it's just an old standby category. I think if it's done well lasagna's fantastic. Well, we are going tonight, depending on the weather to Mucci in Saint Paul. I hear great thanks now. My son Seth. Is at thirteen and he is somewhat lasagna. Fast. I would say nice lasagna expert is what I call them, which let me just say if you put a picture of your child Instagram stories and label him as our lasagna expert. That child happens to be an eighth grade. Boy, oh. France will call him lasagna expert. Yeah, I don't think that worked out well for you know, I don't think he was happy. I felt a little bad about that one. But I I met that with all the other respect that a summer auto golf. I wanna call myself professional. A food critic can have like. Love lasagna. I will say like battlers dads. So yes, why? Right. Yeah. Not a lot of lasagna. Correct. Yup. You know, you can have arguments about whether you want it like, swimming and sauce or now. Otherwise good lasagna. I Saturday's makes a really good lasagna. Mucci you false five Sogeti house and those guys know Lozada rotors, right Ronnie, exit very, very good. Now. What movie did you see at ten thirty? And did you think about sneaking we're talking with us? That would have happened. If you snuck in right did not go out to pay tracking movie, and you're caught like, local television and social media gadfly caught sneaking into a second movie. I will come fat that I really we saw spider man, spider, man. What's it called? The spider verse. It's animated is very good. It was good. Okay. It kinda brought together a bunch of like historical spider-man's at work that had comic book to kind of went through all these different universities, and they all came together. It's like a gang of spider, man. It was it was very very entertaining. But I also like to see marry Poppins, which is currently theaters. Talk about like ship. We should we sneak into another. It's although we are saying when we talk about it's harder now Jason with the assigned seats. That's right. And we're in tune rapid AFC. They are. Yeah. So I don't know if we would have you would have been caught embarrassing moments. You've ever I grew up going to go into like a White Sox games, and you were moved down, right? Nothing wrong. Yeah. For sure you get caught. You just have to get up and move, and you do that like little shuffle of shave. Yes. Yes. I guess I oh. Sorry. Well, you would probably go like second role home plate, right and say, wait you want to be here? Yeah. I mean you recognize. Our kids working behind the outgoing Downer. The concession stand. So that would have been out David story with happy for this guy. Like, oh, we caught garage Shaw sneaking all I'd love that. I that would make my day of all the sudden I'm on Twitter. Hurt you feel like it might help. I think help right. I think people would identify with you, especially if you're doing it. I think it'd be better know Elissa, but you and the boys. Yeah. Just kind of a new tradition now there will be some backlash, but he you would be the fun dad. Yeah. I mean, those, hey, you do something. Great backlash like you just. You know, I I think. Looking at a food. I think that's five. Yeah. You know, my dad lasagna. Would make microwave and chanted in his like oversized winter coat. Sneak that investment? No, that's. Some movie theater movie theater candy. Yes. Right. That's to me that's still the key to to to popcorn you find your candy treat, and you get the sweet and salt together. I. Why preference reese's pieces racist? Yeah. I'm I'm a huge recess. Decent. Doesn't get the respect it deserves. Agreed. I think the reese's peanut butter propagates off along like the crunchy outside racist thesis that is that I will say I should hit the Lottie da, the hoity toity peanut butter cups. I I will pay a little bit more than I will Mike have ten a city. I mean. I mean, it's like it's so good tried those before. I think what trader Joe's has some. Oh, they traded all their phenomenal. Okay. Let's say the four of you on this flight. Let's say you're traveling from Vancouver. And you're on your way to Hawaii. Right. I mean, beautiful city beautiful state, and it turns out about halfway through the flight it asked to turnaround because of a malfunction hydraulic indication. Now, I don't wanna be the one who's on the plane saying, let's go for it when we're about to be over the Pacific Ocean. I mean Vancouver to Hawaii, right. I mean, you're over the ocean. Ninety nine percent of the flight, right? Okay. Hydraulic. That's true. For the for the land. Landing gear. Dave. Yes. Landing gear overrated. Underrated properly. It's gonna work in Hawaii just as well. It's going to work in Vancouver. What's the difference? Although in Hawaii, perhaps if you over shows the runway, you're you're in a drink. Yeah. I think I think that couvert also probably right? Aren't you going to Hawaii to get in the drink? Anyway. I mean, either way if you over shoot the runway, it's not good. I'd rather be in Hawaii. So it turns out they had to bring the plane back to Vancouver. But they then rewarded the passengers? For the problem. What is the proper way to payback to compensate the costumers for the halfway comeback? Check it and then go a delay of about. If you're I've their fifteen hours after the flight originally left. So you probably lost about what seven eight nine hours something like that. You probably lost you essentially lost a day of your baking you did. And. Probably a lot of uncomfortable moments with the family smell young kids. So what what's the proper compensation? I mean, my first instinct on this says like sometimes mechanical problems happen. And I don't know that they need their need to do anything. Right. I presume they're son error on their part. If they discover it the drought or maybe just an indicator went up. Maybe they didn't check. They're doing anything. I would say refunding that one half of your ticket like the one leg that would be. That would be nice ten bucks is what they did. Ten bucks to give you nothing. Yes. One hundred percent, right. Is exactly what I was gonna say. You just piss them off more by ten bucks. Stay either say here's the deal part of the deal that we make here as the airlines and use the past years is to make sure you don't die. And if something happens, we're going to bring you back, and that's part of what you're paying for already or else. Here's two hundred bucks, you either do two hundred three hundred something like that. But not ten who is the more on who said, ten bucks, ten bucks. This. Have work. There was a period of time over a TV that our Christmas bonus not a bonus. They didn't know. Saying we're not familiar with us here at the party at the Christmas party. We were given a twenty five dollars target gift card. Okay. Not bad. Lab at twenty five and a low low number say, you know, how about you? Give us just like an extra drink forever, buddy. At the event, we call it a day. Like, it's so low. Tend to me ten dollars. If it was a ten dollar gift start ups in solving twenty five still feels like at least you low Dave for you is that too low. I can make twenty five target last a week. What is what does this guy? Do. I give me all of them. I think fifty should be the number. I think so the the funny thing is out one of our employees with Dan like send out an Email the day after the party mad about the number. He was corrupting for his church. Oh, okay. And then you're guilty. Right. Why better give? Well, well, I'll say the twenty five dollars. Yeah. Now, you'd be terrible. If you then went out and said, no. Oh, sorry. Who are you like John Lowe won the fantasy football league later this year? I know many people weren't gonna pay by the way, Adam Carter Brennan. And Jonathan being the great person. He is put out an Email today saying, hey, donate it to a charity of your choice. So I said very county. I might send a second tax back or Email, and I'd like confirmation a few of these guys. Let's let's let's see that. They actually did it 'cause I'm a little skeptical. Right. So again, I wish I was watching Monday nights with the or Tuesday night whenever it is with the Jason Russia rock and New Year's Eve, and then we'll get we'll try to get that going some point. I mean, new new. Maybe next year. Thanks, man..
