United Teachers, Ella at 35,000 strong union in the U. S. D School district were school district in America. I know I went there may those demands in a policy paper released this week, The organization called on Local authorities to keep school campus is closed when the semester begins on August 18th. What does the union wants in order to reopen? Well. They want sequestration of students in small groups throughout the school day, providing students with masks and other forms of protective equipment, redesigning school layout in order to facilitate social distancing, But not just that. I want police to be defunded. What does that have to do with anything? The answer is nothing. They're just using this as a club to wield against the citizenry. We won't let you bring your kids to school. Almost you defund. The cops is a weird one. The union says the police violence is quote a leading cause of death and trauma for black people and is a serious public health and moral issue. A document calls on authorities would shift the astronomical amount of money devoted to policing to education and other essential needs, such as housing and public health. I don't want to come back to school, so why should we be giving you extra money? Privately operated publicly funded charter schools should also be put out of business, according to these public school unions. Why it's almost as though they're using the pandemic as a club to beat the living hell out of all their political opponents. They don't like the cops, and they don't like charter schools who could have imagined they don't like competition from non unionized charter schools. I could have possibly imagined that the public teachers unions would have wanted to use the pandemic has an excuse to defund charter schools. Practice of co locating charter schools in existing structures. It continues add students to campuses when we need to reduce the number of students to allow for physical distancing. Also, the union demands federal Medicare for all Several new state level taxes on wealthy people and a federal bailout of the school district. A document says the benefits to restarting physical schools must outweigh the risks, especially for our most vulnerable students in school communities. See, Here's the thing in the private sector. Here's how you would meet this demand by saying you're fired. We just got a bunch of new third grade teachers. In the public school system. It's like, well, we'll think about it. Maybe we'll shut down the charter schools. My goodness. You can't re open unless you shut down charter schools. To be defunded immediately. By the way, a lot of what's going on right now does show the complete bankruptcy of our educational system. I don't just mean lower educational system. Remember, Harvard has said its going completely online. Is only gonna cost you $51,000.51,000 dollars a year to go completely online to get Netflix for, like, 15 bucks a month or theoretically and get Harvard for $10,000 a month for your streaming classes. Really well done, which demonstrates by the way that Harvard is not actually university is just a diploma mill. And I say This is a graduate of Harvard Law School. What you're really paying for is the diploma. You're now taking Harvard Extension School, which used to be like 100 bucks a credit. Except you're paying $51,000 for the diploma.

"Makers who spark civic engagement in our society our guest today as Lee McIntyre. He's the author of Post Truth and he's also a research fellow at the Center for Philosophy and History of science at Boston University and an instructor in ethics at Harvard Extension School. I've been thinking about how we have come to arrive at our current post truth era and what it might take to get out of it. So we're doing a whole season on. How News and information is presented and manipulated in the media and are larger public discourse to get US started and frame thinking. We spoke to Lee. If you've ever been confused about the difference between fake news and propaganda or you're really not sure what post-truth really means and what its purpose is. This is a perfect episode are defined post truth as the political subordination of reality. I think that it say tactic that Authoritarians and they're wannabes used to corrupt our belief. Not Distance specific truths but in the idea that we have a way to pursue truth outside political context. So I don't think it's really A failing of knowledge so much as one of politics we discussed the role of decades of signs. Denial and the rise of Fake News in ushering in this post truth era and what we can do to support the idea. The truth matters and rebuild trust. Let's listen in. Thank you for joining us. Thank you so much for having me so you wrote this Beautiful Book Post Truth and I liked that your title. Get Straight to the point without a subtitle. Let's go right to the meat of the matter. How do you define post truth? There's a lot of confusion these days over. What Post Truth Means Post? Truth doesn't mean that we don't care about truth anymore. It means that we live in an era. When truth is at risk I define post truth as the political subordination of reality. I think that it's a tactic that authoritarians in they're wannabes used to corrupt belief. Not just in specific truths but in the idea that we have a way to pursue truth outside a political context so I don't think it's really a a failing of knowledge so much as one of politics. Holler is susceptible to dis- kind of political manipulation. Of what we accept as truth post-truth didn't come out of nowhere. There are several routes. The first one is science. Denial I talk about how the fact that we've had science now for the past sixty or seventy years created a blueprint for what post truth was gonNA look like because if you could deny the truth about climate change or evolution. You could deny the truth about just about anything like how. Many people were at an inauguration or the path of a hurricane some other routes our cognitive bias. That's built in to all of us through evolution and then these days the decline of traditional media and the rise of social media really the Internet has been the gas on the fire. So it's not that people have never lied before people have never tried to manipulate reality for their own benefit. It's these days it can happen much faster than it used to be able to happen more widespread. Can you give an example for how we have accepted some climate denial? That's the easiest one or even maybe with tobacco and how that has worked in creating in our brains and idea that things are not settled and therefore there is doubt. Yeah THE BLUEPRINT FOR POST. Truth was sixty or seventy years of science to now. The best example is maybe the one that you bring up where the tobacco companies freaked out in the nineteen fifties because there was a scientific study that was going to show and all causal link between cigarette smoking and lung cancer. They hired a public relations specialist. Who advised them that what they needed to do is fight the science and so they need to manufacture doubt where there was none and what happened with. This is that it created the idea that you could manipulate public opinion simply by raising doubts They didn't have to be scientific doubts what they did. Was they exploited? The idea that lay people have about science. Which is that science is about certainty and proof that you need one hundred percent certainty before you're justified in believing something and that's not actually the way that science works at all so you see this ripple through climate change you hear people say well have you proven that climate change is caused by greenhouse gases You know are your models one hundred percent. Can you tell me what the temperature will be in five years a high if you can't then they think they've got enough room for doubt but that's just the way that science works? Science is about warrant not about proof when we get enough evidence that it makes it a reasonable to believe something that's when sites moves forward people who are motivated not to believe something call themselves skeptics. Wait for one hundred percent proof and then they never end up believing anything that they don't want to believe. Yeah it's very convenient to do it that way and we're seeing that we're really seeing that right now in real life before we get there. I wanted to talk about what you said on the demise of traditional media and the fragmentation of the news industry together with the rise of social media. But let's start with the idea for the reality. I should say that we now have partisan media outlets and they pursue essentially prophet whereas in the old days it was that the news was only half an hour of a networks time and they had investigative reporting and they basically told you. What's right and what's wrong and what's true and what's not and once you had CNN and Fox News and Msnbc they have more of into purveyors of opinion as opposed to facts and one of the things that they do is they present both sides of an issue and give falls equivalence. Can you explain what falls equivalents is? Because I think that's very ill understood. Sure I think you're absolutely right about the history of the way that things have gone. The news media used to be. That news was a loss leader for the station so they had news divisions because their broadcast license said that they needed to do work in the public interest and the entertainment is where they made their money after CNN. They discovered well. You can make money on news and let's try twenty four seven news. Well then all of a sudden you've got to make money on it. It's much more expensive to do. Actual News investigative reporting than opinion. And so the opinion sort of took over and the false equivalents that you talk about is important especially for science debates if you look at the way that the news media used to present science topics they still do to some extent. You would find a split screen debate where they would have somebody from the National Academy of Science talking about the importance of climate change. And then you'd have some climate denier who had a website and a following and they would give them both equal time to talk and then at the end make it sound like it was debate and look at the audience and say you decide. That's maybe the worst possible way to present it because they're making it seem as if there's doubt where amongst the scientists there really isn't any one reason that this happens is because the news media have always been allergic to the idea that they would be accused of bias and the simplest way to show that you're not biased is to let both sides talk. But here's the problem. The halfway point between the truth and a lie is still ally it objectivity in journalism doesn't mean that you're indifferent between truth and ally. It means that you don't want to leave your audience less well informed after they finish watching your program than they were in the beginning. The media has changed a little bit the way that they do science reporting now but they still with Factual matters are bending over backwards to far to show that they're not politically biased in some cases. Not Reporting the truth. Yeah yes so the media right now instead of facilitating the truth by really doing objective reporting. They instead do this. Both sides `ISMs in reduced manner of course. But still when you do that you confuse the public. So what would it look like? What would be good truthful reporting? Let's say on the signs of climate change. There's a brilliant psychologist George Lake off. Who has a model called the truth sandwich where he said that when you are reporting on a factual matter that's in dispute what you should do? As a journalist is present the truth then present what the person said that was a lie? And then fact check the light. There's a way to make it clear that you don't present it. As if both sides.

We'll assess who if anyone is taking care of the nation's national security and dealing with. Unfolding global events which mostly so far have not involved a foreign policy crisis or confrontation in little though, it is bad enough that Trump is compromised by the Russians who are continuing to meddle without elections. His reckless disregard for making sure the remnants of ISIS in Syria, not allowed to escape to fight us another day, which was the issue of a witch secretary of defense resigned indicates held it'll Trump cares about his role as commander in chief since he's main preoccupation appears to be to stymie investigations into him.

Welcome to background briefing. Thomas nichols. Thanks for having me. So before we get into the article. Well, you make the case that President Trump has traded his country Judy for his own safety just yesterday or I think it might have been over the weekend Sunday. I think he he tweeted thirty six thirty seven times. Oh kinds of you know, aggrieved tweets about the mullahs report. No collusion. No, collusion and stuff like that. And the impression you get is that this is what this president of assets managed does most of the day. We know he watches a lot of television. But he's also tweeting out sort of, you know, petty attacks on critics. And that sort of tremendous sense of agreement that he has that he sort of beleaguered by valor in the Democrats, and you wonder what about the business of of state? I mean, fortunately, we haven't had a crisis yet. But they happen often presidents are often faced with serious national security challenges we've been lucky so far. But my impression is that. This is a president who is toddy obsessed with himself and his own political problems and isn't really doing the nation's business important to remember that I don't speak for the government here in my own view. But I have the same reaction every morning that you do I open up the newspaper or turn on the television. Or I look at Twitter, and I see the president sometimes as you point out. You know, multiple tweets of various levels of unhinged. Anger, and I keep wondering who's running the country who's actually paying attention to the day to day. Business of I mean, I worked in political office. I worked for Senator. We were busy from you know, o'clock in the morning until sometimes into the night. And we were just trying to do the business of legislating. I mean, the president seems to have plenty of time to watch FOX and friends and to tell the New York Times it needs to get on two knees and apologize to him and talk about enemies of the state and all kinds of other things that his own White House counsel refer to as crazy stuff. And I think, you know, it's it's it's unnerving..

And have a look at those boys that'll divert it according to the psychologists in the study, I'm reading from from when people feel this way, it is not a desired actually cause harm. It's just an expression of the overwhelming cuteness that's being thrust upon them. Cute. Aggression is often baffling embarrassing to the people who experience it. They usually say things like this is weird. I'm probably the only one who feels this way. But don't worry. You're not alone. It was first described back and research by Yale several years ago. So this kid who graduated from Harvard I've only had gone to Yale. He'd know all about the cute aggression problem. I never heard of that before. Electrical activity and brains of fifty four young adults were tested, and they found that several people had markers of cute at Gresham. You don't get angry when you see like too, many of the same thing when people aren't trying too hard to make everything. So so that's an interesting question. Because the way you just phrased it is different than what? Said earlier, I think I think people trying to act cutesy, right? That doesn't make you angry. Oh, they does. Sometimes there is an aggressive nature that happens. When when I see that when I see just stop it. Okay. Do you like to cute talk when a girl tries to do you like the baby baby voice or something? Like that. Voiced baby. Always don't I don't know. No. I don't I don't like that. At all. I don't like the burn thing that that you get like that up cute aggression because of the baby shark radio because it is to me. It is cute. It makes me angry. I got it. I want to squish the sharks..
