Biden, Harris are Time's 2020 'Person of the Year'

"Go from here. That's the colossal question. Before president-elect joe biden who was named times person of the year along with vice president elect kamala harris. He's not the first person of the year to be tasked with the future of america. Almost every u s president since the franchise began in nineteen twenty. Eight has been named person of the year at least once excluding calvin coolidge. Herbert hoover and gerald ford but biden is likely the first in a generation to inherit such a crescendo of course trophies. A worsening pandemic that's brought a staggering loss of life widespread unemployment and an economic crisis a global climate crisis a reckoning over the continued pervasiveness of systemic racism and growing misinformation blurring fact and fiction during an interview with time editor in chief and ceo. Edward felsen thal at queens theatre in wilmington delaware. The president-elect discussed his partnership with harris the coming covid nineteen vaccine rollout. His thoughts on pardons and more here are excerpts. From biden's interview edited for clarity on restoring america's middle class if my plan is able to be implemented whole plan. I think it's going to go down as one of the most progressive administrations in american history. We've lost the idea that when ordinary people do well. Everybody does better. It's important that we focus on the things that provide opportunity pardoning donald trump. my justice department will make decisions based on the facts there. The people's lawyers. They're not my lawyers. I'm never going to pick up the phone. And say pardon so. And so or go out and prosecute so. And so. But i lived through gerald ford's pardoning of richard nixon. I think that the law and the circumstance should take its effect. I'm not suggesting. Trumpy prosecuted. Or not. But i would not be engaged in that prematurely. How the pandemic has changed him and us. What's been reinforced is my absolute commitment. That everyone is entitled to health care. It's not about whether or not it's a privilege it's a right. We're the only country in the world that has come out of every crisis stronger than we went into the crisis. I predict we will come out of this crisis stronger than when we went in finding vaccine. Hesitancy the words of a president matter. Whether they're good. Presidents are bad. They matter i joined the three presidents who said they would be publicly vaccinated because i think people will realize that we have to reinstate confidence that science is real if someone with the reputation of anthony fauci and the leading scientists of the country said this vaccine works they should take choosing kamala harris. She is straight as an arrow. She is really really bright. She is tough but yet she has a heart. That understands what it's like to be on the other side of prejudice. She also was an immigrant's daughter who was raised in a strange way like i was. We were taught that we could be anything. Don't give up just move. Keep pushing. And i just found her to be someone who. If in fact something happened to me i knew they could take over. That's kamla

Donald Trump's disregard for our transition rituals threatens democracy

"Have you noticed. This is not normal. The president openly trying to say only the votes for him should count talking about sailing election. No legal path to succeed. We've been reporting on how those michigan republicans were welcomed at the white house after being shamed in their own home state for what they were doing. And donald trump is also taking petty moves that basically delay or mess with aspects of the transition. They won't mess with the transfer of power. All of this. We want to show tonight with. The evidence is a radical break from a longstanding. Bipartisan approach to the peaceful transfer of power in america that look forward to talking to the president so honored that he was attended with hospitality to me. And my wife. Yesterday didn't need to do this. And i am most grateful that He would do so good morning last night. I had a warm conversation with president. Elect barack obama. I congratulated him and senator biden on their impressive. Victory told the president-elect he can count on complete cooperation for my administration as he makes the transition to the white house. My number one priority. In the coming two months is to try to facilitate a transition that ensures dental is successful. We turned presidential historian. Michael beschloss what contrast you see from there to now well once again are a donald trump tonight as a category of his own. Go all the way back to john adams who lost to the guy who was at that time as you know his political enemy. Thomas jefferson. Adams was angry about being defeated by jefferson. And he didn't hang around for the inauguration that tradition adopted established yet so adams got an a stage coach and went back to massachusetts before jefferson was born in but it began this tradition. That even when you have an incumbent president who is angry at the guy who beat him for reelection. Herbert hoover in one thousand nine hundred ninety three and franklin roosevelt over to the white house to talk about how they should transfer power even when they rolled up to the capital roosevelt and hoover sat in the back of an open car. They shared a lap robe. If you could believe it didn't talk much. But that's a tradition. And as you say the tradition is running alongside both the rules constitutional requirements and the norms that much abuse a framework or term in the last four years That provide a buffer a provide a context all this. We just showed the outgoing president's michael stays with us. We want to show michael. And our viewers the other cases where we have seen the candidates as mentioned who lost just conceding with some eye on their place in history john mccain making what for him was a painful concession to barack obama in two thousand and eight hillary clinton in that loss that shocked so many including many in the republican party. She got up the next morning and gave that speech pledging cooperation to president-elect trump and sixteen we've seen presidents who lost reelection like trump did face the music the people of the united states that made the choice and of course. I accept that decision. But i have to admit not with the same enthusiasm that i accepted the decision for years ago. People have spoken. And we respect the majesty of the democratic system. I just called governor clinton over in little rock and offered my congratulations. he did run a strong campaign. I wish him well in the white house. You know michael you deal with facts and evidence you have a rigorous process between where you start and publishing one of your history books. How do you measure class. Because what i see there is something. That's hard to prove. But i feel it inside which is across ideology in parties. We've just seen many different presidents showing a type of class or even grace that is absent right now at the white house. We're going to ari. I've got two sons who are now in their twenties but they used to play a little league and every time they played a game even if they lost they would shake hands with the winning team and say good game. That was assumed this. That's that's american. What is not. American is to claim when you didn't win to be a poor loser you try to be out of keeping with the tradition of all those guys you just showed even richard nixon who is not thought of in history as a particularly gracious winner. Nineteen sixty gets beaten by john kennedy. He was very angry about it and it was very sad about it but he goes out and tells us supporters in los angeles in america. Once a decision is made we unite behind the candidate who was elected that was even before the final results were. Yeah that's great a great example. You're given off as we say off the top of the dome michael We have one more for you. And that is al gore. Who did have this tight legal challenge. Everyone remembers frustrating. For both sides in the run up to it and then of course frustrating for the person losing so narrowly having won more votes overall total across america. Al gore take a look now the. Us supreme court has spoken. Let there be no doubt while. I strongly disagree with the court's decision. I accept it. I accept the finality of this outcome. Which will be ratified next monday. In the electoral college and tonight for the sake of our unity as a people and strength of our democracy. I offer my concession. If i may be a little optimistic here at the end of the week michael ask you to guide us. What would you as someone who cares deeply about america. What would you tell citizens both parties neither party whatever. What is incumbent upon the rest of us to do if we never get that concession from this president. What do we do from here together. We just say the. Donald trump is a gross aberration. Get him out out the door. The door doesn't hit him on the way out on the twentieth of january and say we demand our leaders that they do. What all those other candidates that you show tonight did show some graciousness and understand that democracy is more important. Listen to what al gore said. He didn't say. I agree with the supreme court decision in bush v gore. He says for the sake of our democracy. I offer my concession. Most canada's most presidents love democracy want to unite the country. Donald trump is a gross aberration and exception to that tradition. Soon he'll be gone. Michael beschloss gets the word on that. Thank you sir.

On, that day nineteen, thirty, two, five, hundred, US army infantrymen loaded rifles, fixed bayonets, gas grenades containing of vomited ingredient two, hundred cavalry, a machine gun squadron eight, hundred police and six M One, nine, thousand, nine, hundred seventeen army tanks prepared to attack seventeen hundred unarmed men plus thousands of their wives and children moments before the Assault General Douglas Smith Garth in charge of the operation turned. To police officers standing next to him and said, I will break the back of the enemy. The attack was ordered by President Herbert Hoover and commanded by General Macarthur Dwight D Eisenhower was MacArthur's aide and Major. General George.

Occupants of the area in Kampman was then burned to the ground. This wasn't Cuba the Philippines or the Mexican border. But in Washington DC The camp nicknamed Hoover Ville occupied by World War One veterans who were living in tents and shanties across the country and they're also in their encampment in DC with crumbling buildings all around them along Pennsylvania Avenue near the capital if your education was anything like mine, there wasn't any mention of this event. In history class four, million vets had returned from the war. This is World War One was the war to end all wars and found that others had taken their jobs that are considerably higher wage than though one dollar per day soldiers pay an expected more help from the government in nineteen twenty four Congress promised World War One veterans a bonus payment. I'll dollar twenty five for each day of overseas service and a dollar for every day of. Home Service there would be a limit of six hundred, twenty five dollars for overseas service and five hundred for Home Service but the catch twenty two was that it could not be redeemed until nineteen forty five cash quickly dubbed at the tombstone bonus because many of them would be dead before collecting with the Great Depression deepening demands for making an immediate payment we're escalating finally bill was passed, but President Hoover vetoed it in response some three hundred. Veterans led by Ex Sergeant Walter waters boarded a freight train in Portland Oregon in early May nineteen, thirty, two and headed. For Washington DC. Soon, others began their pilgrimage the cat to the capital from across the country and dilapidated buses overcrowded pickup trucks by walking hitch-hiking the vets and their families were in desperate financial shape with overdue bills to pay hunger affections hanging over their heads. They demanded immediate payment of the bonus soon, known as a bonus.

Together, during world, War One, the military was still segregated as was Anacostia Park when the marchers arrived the vets who had fought a war together deliberately decided to live side by side and set up in the black section of the park. This fact alone may have led some people to fear the movement General Macarthur's most trusted subordinate Brigadier General. George Van Horn Moseley portrayed black and white veterans living together. As proof that Negroes Jewish communist were planning a revolution in truth radicals and Communists were dismissed by the veterans and were never serious element in the movement. The veterans those were still alive didn't receive their bonuses until nineteen, forty five keep in mind that many. World War One vets had died by then and families were not eligible for the bonus. The ravages of the Great Depression continued until World War Two. Today.

Making Do

"Dissolve one packet of Lemon Jello in one can or one cubes worth of Beef Bouillon. Add lemon juice and allowed to cool. Add three hard boiled eggs diced. One Cup diced celery. Half an onion grated one cup miracle whip and one can of corn beef chopped chill until set slice and serve congratulations. You've just made corned beef luncheon salad. My Name's Moxy and this is your brain on facts. Use It up where it out make it do were do without my grandmother would say. I thought that was clever saying from her side of the family but it was actually a slogan from World War Two encouraging the public to use fewer resources so more could be diverted to the war effort. We're all getting a taste of that as we're hunker down unable to shop at the spur of the moment and much more limited in our choices when we do thankfully we do have precedent to fall back on after all people are still alive today it through the Great Depression children. The roaring twenties came to an abrupt stop with the Stock Market Crash of Nineteen Twenty nine which saw billions of dollars evaporated into thin air. The crash wasn't the sole cause of the Great Depression. There were things like the dust bowl wherein incorrect farming methods turned the fertile American planes into a desert but the crash did act to accelerate the global economic collapse by nineteen thirty three. Nearly half of America's banks failed and thirty percent of the workforce was unemployed. You had to make the most of what you had and you had to get good at that fast to women. Help struggling homemakers to be able to feed their families. Eleanor Roosevelt an aunt. Sammy beginning in nineteen twenty. Six and Sammy had a popular weekday. Radio show called housekeepers chat about cooking and other domestic concerns as well as chitchatting about whatever else was going on at the time and Sammy was very popular especially in rural areas. Thousands of people wrote into her for recipes by nineteen thirty to one hundred and ninety four stations broadcast aunt. Sammy show and she published aunt. Sammy's radio recipes. Parenthetically the Great Depression Cookbook. It would be the first cookbook published in Braille. Interestingly enough though I struggle to think of how difficult it would be to cook on wood or old timey gas stove without good eyesight on Sammy's recipes. Were meant to be simple healthy and easy to cook. She's even credited with helping Broccoli. Find widespread acceptance prior to which it was only found in insular Italian neighborhoods and Sammie helped many wives and mothers through the Great Depression but once that was over then country was back on its feet. People lost interest. The show was cancelled sometime in the nineteen forties. Though sources don't agree when exactly. There's one other fact about aunt Sammy. That's worth mentioning. She didn't exist in the latter half of the twentieth. The Department of Agriculture Bureau of Home Economics created a wife for uncle. Sam The on creatively named Aunt Sammy. The character was voiced by different women at each individual radio station that way the listener would hear an accent similar to their own and feel more connected to aunt Sammy. Three women worked behind the scenes at the USDA to prepare the script each week that all the regional aunt. Sammy's would use fanny Walker. Contested Recipes Josephine. Harmful wrote the chatty portions of the show and Ruth Fan demine coordinated all of the Menus and recipes. The other woman who guided homemakers through was the very real first lady. Eleanor Roosevelt. When Franklin Roosevelt entered the White House in Nineteen thirty three? A record number of people were hungry but being president is not without its perks and the first family eight well even extravagantly while people stood inbred lines. Eleanor Roosevelt. Who didn't know how to cook realized that the way she and the president ate in the White House had the potential to influence and even help the nation through the depression. She hired an acquaintance. Henrietta Nesbitt whose husband was out of work to be the new White House housekeeper housekeeper at that time more like how we use the term homemaker today and not as we use a euphemism for cleaning lady. Nesbitt and Roosevelt retooled the entire kitchen installing modern appliances and coaxing the skeptical White House staff to use them. This was the first kitchen in America and it wasn't even sanitary recalled. Nesbitt in her memoir. Meanwhile Eleanor turn to home economists for menus that would balance nutrition and economy the healthiest recipes in the world wouldn't help people if they couldn't afford the ingredients what's more she resolved to serve these humble dishes in the White House. Her efforts were covered by national newspapers and followed closely by housewives. There was a catch. These nutritious economic meals were awful. The first kitchen was turning out some of the most unpalatable meals in modern memory. The president himself was usually the test subject for these new dishes and he obligingly choked them down. Things like deviled eggs with tomato sauce and prune pudding in place of lavish dishes. The White House table was the stage for things like Spaghetti with boiled carrots. Cold jellied billion and bread and butter sandwiches served so much mutton that being grown sheep which is cheaper than lamb. Because it's much tougher that it became a joke throughout Washington. The first lady experimented with foods like milk corno a mix of dried milk powder and cornmeal developed by Cornell University milk. Porno could be eaten as a gruel like dish or worked into recipes. I was not brave enough to research. What those recipes might be. The bland meals became so notorious that visitors to the White House would eat before they went nutrition. Not Taste was paramount in the time of soup. Kitchens and bread lines and eleanor. Roosevelt was trying to use her table as a way of encouraging and inspiring other Americans to get through this uniquely challenging historical moment. It was just as well they got used to eating a limited range of food because FDR's presidency also included World War Two and the Roosevelt's eight rationed food just like everyone else Roosevelt's White House eight modestly in an act of culinary solidarity with the people who were suffering. Jane's Eagle men. The CO author of a square meal told The New York Times. Here's a sampling of menu items. The first family and the public general might have enjoyed in massive bunny ears spaghetti with carrots and white sauce. The sauce was basically just milk. Meatless loaf made with peace oatmeal peanuts. Rice and or cottage cheese. Whatever you could get your hands on Mulligan's stew any animal. You could kill or find dead with whatever veggies you could manage or anything. That would keep hungry. They for a few hours without killing you like sawdust. It was reportedly created by the massive homeless population during the depression. Where people in homeless or migrant worker camps would pool their resources so that everyone could eat none of my sources mentioned where the name Mulligan might have come from. We do know the name origin of another STU. Hoover Stu Herbert Hoover had been elected just in time for the crash. But Unlike the Roosevelt's he continued to live the good life in the White House. Shantytowns BECAME HOOVER. Villes and the soup from soup. Kitchens became hoover stu the weirdest one of all and this report is opinion was peanut butter in baked. Onions was a whole onion hollowed out stuffed with peanut butter and baked. Just because we have two things on hand doesn't mean we should eat them at the same time as Eagle men succinctly put it. Peanut butter has nothing to say to a baked onion. Some recipes sound like they shouldn't work but surprisingly do like mock Apple Pie. Apples weren't readily available. But Americans weren't willing to give up their conic Apple Pie. The apples in mock apple pie were actually Ritz crackers and it worked. If you're not already familiar with Youtuber Emmy made in Japan. I'll link her hard time series in the show notes and on the website. She all kinds of dishes from times of deprivation including hot water pie grapefruit. Peel steak toast soup. And even the Haitian dirt cookies which you can hear more about in episode number ninety four. My name is mud while we can be grateful that recipes like ketchup soup and peanut butter and mayonnaise. Sandwiches are behind us. Some food created during the depression is still with us. Meatloaf is a comfort food classic and shaping food into loaves go to during the Great Depression. The same goes for casseroles which were a good way to use up odds and ends or to mask less palatable ingredients the depression also gave us the mother of all comfort. Food Kraft Macaroni and cheese or kraft dinner for my friends up. North in Nineteen thirty seven craft heard about a salesman from the tender Roni. Macaroni Company of Saint Louis. A Scottish emigrant aimed grant Leslie going rogue and selling his noodles with packets of greeted kraft cheese attached. They hired him to promote the concept and started selling it for nineteen cents for four servings.

Pandemic Causes Shockwaves Through World Economy

"We're talking this hour about the corona virus code nineteen and how it is ripping through every facet of our world alongside the risk of infection or even death the pandemic is causing shockwaves throughout the world economy so many people have already lost their jobs and many many more are likely to lose them in the weeks ahead on the other side of this pandemic whenever we get there are world may look very different indeed staff writer John Cassidy covers economics and politics for The New Yorker hi John I did John I well first I should ask has your family how's everybody doing everything is good at the moment thank you very much for asking good now I know this is early days but is there any back of the envelope calculation about how many people are likely to lose their jobs because of the situation the treasury secretary Steve Mnuchin has said is could go up to twenty percent where you're coming to look at this I've been speaking in the last couple days they think read because the lockdowns and all the other impacts consumer spending could fall by as much as a third in the next few months I thank you for your help through the economy consumer spending about two thirds of the entire economy attributes hates I think you just got through ensuring placement decisions we got some very large unemployment numbers as you said Mnuchin's talking about twenty percent unemployment he will be back truck rather than saying it was only a mathematical calculation but I spoke to an economic historian yesterday are you like a grain of the Berkeley is an expert on the Great Depression and he told me that the economic impact of the covered nineteen buyers is likely to be bigger than the Great Depression in the initial stages were used in the Great Depression it took three or four years you get up to a twenty five percent unemployment we're talking about going to twenty percent unemployment in a few months there really is something out completely out of the order of anything we've seen in the past who's going to get hit the hardest with sectors of the economy are likely to be hit really especially hard well everybody great interest to it ultimately if the economy totally spirals down but in the first instance it's what they call a consumer facing industries because consumers look like they're going to get locked in our problems in a lot of and what about cities for the foreseeable future I'm doing a sensual consumption food and drinks and things like that will it will even be open so it looks like gig workers L. I'm workers anybody in transportation anybody in hotels in tyre sector looks like it's going to be devastating parts already is being devastated have any modern economies ever had to grapple with the vast majority of business essentially seizing up stopping in whole regions of the country for weeks at a time yes Sir Christian zero very I can read more on economic political not economic historian at Berkeley yesterday and he said he couldn't think of any precedent whatsoever for a while we're going through now people point to the blood test with those I can green said in a very different type of economy much wall wall and different time completely how does it compare to two thousand and eight this is much bigger than two thousand eight in two thousand that we had a shock in the financial system you'll recall basically the bank sees doctor but the consumer sector it starts to fall did stop to folks around from start to lay people off those big increasing unemployment in late two thousand eight and early two thousand nine hundred right went up to ten percent eventually you know that's nothing like what we're seeing now practically regard the government government imposed shut down of you know fifty percent of the economy and I will talk to you all of that and you know closing down the economy is a deliberate strategy here it's not bad it's not necessarily a bad thing we have to close down the economy to some extent in all to get a handle on the fires then once we get a handle on the virus we can re open things and directly you know they'll come by could be relatively lucky so the government's role is to basically keep everybody and all the people on life support while wearing the sort of intensive care unit and then we'll get out your website we can replace some of the loans we can you know get things back to normal but it it really occurred in percentage ratio of the stock I think it's a sort of economic life corporation what we need what's your level of confidence in the economic minds that are running things in in Washington okay that's a bit of a loaded question obviously they initial reaction was it was terrible I mean we even until last week they were just talking about this sort of eight billion dollars stimulus which in that twenty one trillion dollar economy option nothing I think they are a collapse in the markets and what we've seen and it's already has concentrated minds and of the last few days we're starting to see some real progress in economic thinking at least for the federal reserve data over the weekend was very important just to provide the following financial crash their grace their gold out a lot of the lending programs were introduced in two thousand and eight people don't like the sight of the fact you know lending unlimited amounts of money to the banks and X. financial institutions but it really is necessary in that area the situation like this otherwise the financial markets will just seize up and then the other side of things is the fiscal side on out of the White House is pasted on a one hundred and eighty U. turn of the last few days and it's not proposing a trillion dollar stimulus including sending checks of at least a thousand dollars to people providing some sort of help to small business isn't gonna make that payrolls bailing out the airlines with loans or whatever and it should get a reasonable size pocket you truly intelligent but by the same despite a logical nearby most in the US in two thousand and nine my own feeling is that's not going to be sufficient I thought but at least it's a first step what about what about the guy who's got a gig job loses it what about people that are put out of work very quickly because they have a four day week job at an airport or an uber driver what can the government do for ordinary people who are hugely immediately affected economically by this crisis well I I've written allow to go saying we should adopt runs you Yangs universal basic income or a few months and just seven people everybody in the country a check for a thousand dollars every month all may be a great head of wholesale to check for fifteen hundred dollars level everybody or based on need dot art well the administration is not proposing one thousand dollars which I don't think we'll be sufficient on right back cutting off millions of people in a million dollars you're trying to cut it off that's fine I think it has to be pretty universal in order to help everybody and also it's it's just got in a universal political support I think the idea of the of the after government supporting everybody would be politically popular and would also help should get support from the other nasty but sort of necessary things that you're going to have to be done including provided financial support search of big corporations as you remember well John there was a lot of political backlash to the bailouts that took place in the last financial crisis what will be the politics of economic policy going forward the trump administration is going to bail out some of the big operations including the airline's you're already seeing quite a lot of backlash or not good luck finding out that the last ten years yeah I want to ask a lot of money and they use a lot of it's a buy back their own stock which benefits that CEOs junior executives who have large stock executive compensation packages so why the heck should we should we buy a lot we scandals the answer as I said is that your when they are becoming a re opens in whatever September we're gonna need a lunch and if you go into bankruptcy it's gonna take a long time so that we organized and set up that structure so I think the there's gonna have to bring some by lots of question is how they structure yeah I think a lot of it's going to depend on the height of the bail out packages are structured in their lines for example in the request which they submitted to the administration are asking for unconditional love IT loans not secured by any assets which is are you not able you know to try to get along the bank that's very difficult to get I think that would be a complete unreasonable to do that alone should be secured on the assets of the company all the airlines likely that planes in the landing slots that structure so if they can't repay the loans the taxpayer would then change the online assets on the day some degree of safety there that actually is what happened during the Great Depression the reconstruction finance corporation which Herbert Hoover mutually shut up and then from ten to launder legible expanded greatly lend a lot of money to the banks which are in terrible trouble under the railroads which were the avalanche of trying but it's secure all those loans on the rolling stock on the tracks that structure of the road so that was some degree of security that I think just the right thing to do it and I think you know that you are get public support that's what we're going to have to go down that route this time I think John thank you

How Did White House Press Briefings Go From Daily to Done?

"Brain. GRAINSTUFF Lauren Bogle bomb here in January of Twenty Twenty bestselling novelist Stephen King and Don winslow took to twitter to make a surprising pledge. They offered to donate two hundred thousand dollars to charity. If Stephanie Grisham the Press Secretary for President Donald Trump agreed to take questions from the full White House. Press Corps for one hour. You're in the White House. Press briefing room. The offer reportedly was rejected by Grisham. WHO's since taking the job in June of two thousand nineteen has yet to hold even one former former White House press briefing? Her views expressed an interview with these sinclair. Broadcast Group is that the briefings are unnecessary because reporters get opportunities to put questions to trump himself sometimes over the roar of the presidential helicopter on the White House lawn for the time being at least the trump administration has abandoned what had been in an important part of White House. Press Corps is routine dating back to the late eighteen hundreds before the official position of White House. Press Secretary even existed. That's when President William McKinley. Kenley set up a workspace in the White House for reporters and sent his first personal secretary. John Addison Porter to give the correspondence what the White House Historical Association notes. where I'm I more or less regular briefings? The White House press briefing gradually evolved into a formal event from the time of president. Herbert Hoover in the late nineteen twenties and early thirties. He's to Linden Johnson's tenure in the mid to late sixties White House press secretary's held twice a day briefing sessions in their own offices according to Martha Joint Kumar Book managing the president's message the White House Communications Operation Richard Nixon though no fan of the press still thought the briefings were important enough that he had a swimming pool torn out so that he could convert the space into a meeting room for briefings. That area is now known as the James S. Brady press briefing room in honor of president. Ronald Reagan's press secretary who was seriously wounded during the attempt. On Reagan's life in Nineteen eighty-one during Bill Clinton's time in the White House in the nineteen nineties. Press Secretary Mike. McCurry decided to allow the daily press briefings to be televised that practice continued until the trump white house began barring cameras from briefings in two thousand seventeen before discontinuing them altogether. Oh we spoke by email but former C. N. N. White House correspondent Dan Lowthian who spent five years covering the Bush and Obama administrations. He said I think the briefings were useful full for a number of reasons. First of all it was an opportunity to get the White House response or thinking on an issue on camera rather than a written statement it allowed us to gang up on them around a question they might have been trying to avoid showing them dodge. An answer is sometimes the news briefings also put statements on the record for later. Comparison finally finally every now and then there would be breaking news and as happened after Osama bin Laden was caught lots of great details even if some turned out not to be true. Lowthian Dan who went on to found little park media and to become a visiting scholar at the School of Journalism at Northeastern University recalls that the format for the briefings was fairly constant. He said there was a certain order to who got called on briefings always started with the Associated Press and ended with a thank you from the Associated Press once in a while the press secretary would mix it up a bit but it usually happened around the same time each day and questions from the first two rows came in order. We also spoke by email with Tom. Tom Jones a senior media writer for the POYNTER Institute. A journalism education organization. He said while it's true that the president and his representatives often make themselves available bowl in informal settings such as the White House lawn. It's not the same as press. Briefings the format of shouting out questions under the sound of a whirling helicopter is not conducive to asking complicated policy questions nor pertinent. Follow up questions. The frenzied free for all of these much too brief informal interviews make it much harder to get into the topics. What's that require nuance and specifics? It's so much easier for the president to brush aside or ignore questions. He doesn't like when he's walking along the White House grounds when he or one of his representatives representatives are standing behind a podium a controlled setting they must face the questions that require long substantive answers as opposed to the one or two short sentences that suffice in those informal formal settings let view essentially is shared by a group of thirteen former White House press secretary and Foreign Service and military officials who published an opinion in peace on. CNN's website in January of twenty twenty calling for trump to restore the regular briefings in their view. Having to prepare for briefings helps the government to run better letter. They wrote the sharing of information known. As official guidance among government officials and agencies helps ensure that an administration speaks with one voice telling one story however compelling it might be Lowthian also sees the apparent end the briefings as unfortunate. He said it's a valid criticism that some reporters others use briefings to showboat. However I think when covering the White House briefings aren't important function that allow the public and reporters to maintain daily connections? Sometimes it's routine information other times. An odd question from the back of the room can turn into the story of the day even so Lowthian says journalists who cover the the administration will find a way to get stories he said this new normal might be unfortunate but not paralyzing. Reporters are in the business of getting information whether it comes from the mouth of his spokesperson or sources all across the beltway.

"Should all feel grateful towards she advanced the science related to a key appliance. You use every single day and probably take for granted the refrigerator. We're talking about. Mary Engle Pennington Mary Engle Pennington was born in eighteen seventy two in Nashville Tennessee see soon after she was born Mary's family her mother father and younger sister moved to Philadelphia to be closer to her mother's wealthy quaker relatives. Mary's parents ordered their daughters interests and hobbies as a result. Mary learned to garden with her father. At a young age she also Oh love to read and spent hours on end at her local library. It was there that she had her first break. Through all reading the book on Medical Chemistry Mary Very was studying a chapter on nitrogen and oxygen when something clicked she later told The New Yorker. I realized Liberty Hoop that although I couldn't touch taste or smell them the really existed it was a milestone. Mary was twelve years old when she had that. Aha moment and from that point on she wanted to learn everything she could about chemistry. Unfortunately the rest of society wasn't so keen on Mary's budding in curiosity at that time studying scientists considered unladylike. Mary tried to convince the head of her boarding school to allow her awesome instruction in chemistry but the headmistress refused still Mary's fascination with medical book didn't go away she went to the university -versity of Pennsylvania which was located near her house and demanded a professor there. Give her some instruction. Despite the fact that she was still only twelve years old the professor told her he would consider teaching her if she learned to read and spell the words in the book and returned when she was older though she didn't didn't return to that specific professor she did return to the University of Pennsylvania in eighteen ninety s she was the only woman in her class and studied chemistry and biology in the university town scientific school to earn a certificate of proficiency she had to settle for that instead of a Bachelor's slurs degree which was denied due to her gender nevertheless she returned and earned a PhD in the same field in eighteen ninety five the University of Pennsylvania was one of the only schools to get doctorate degrees to women at that time after graduating with her PhD. Mary created her own lab. The Philadelphia Clinical Laboratory to analyze different bacteria. She took aim at the ice cream supply she she educated farmers about safety practices while handling raw milk in order to prevent outbreaks of sickness in Nineteen Zero Five Mary Bet Harvey Wiley a famous chemist and the two began working together on cold storage and refrigeration the next year thanks in part art to Harvey Wiley the Pure Food and drug act passed which tightened regulations on food labelling and safety the government created the bureau of chemistries mysteries food research lab to help fulfill the safety requirements outlined in the law and Harvey Wanted Mary to be in charge after all she got the top top score on the exam required to enter Federal Service. Harvey was so sure that Mary was the best choice but he tried to conceal the fact that she was a woman woman. I referring to her only as Emmy Pennington on the necessary paperwork his trickery was soon discovered but harvey continued the fight by arguing that Mary couldn't be denied simply on account of gender. Mary was hired to leave the lab her work in that lab established. The foundation of today's food knowledge that keeping bacteria count low and refrigerated foods like milk eggs and cheese is instrumental to food safety. She also also developed standards for processing chickens for food led an investigation of the refrigerated boxcar and served on Herbert hoovers war food administration station during World War One in nineteen nineteen. Mary left her work for the federal government to continue research in her own lab about the safety of frozen foods foods through her later research. She discovered that freezing food was a more viable storage method than canning or smoking during her career. Mary won the Garvan Olin Medal the highest award given to women in the American Chemical Society in Nineteen twenty-three she was is recognized by the American Society of heating refrigeration and air conditioning engineers as the greatest American expert on home refrigeration. She's also also in the National Women's hall of fame throughout her career. Mary encouraged young women to participate in the sciences including her own meese who also went on to pursue a stem degree. Mary passed away in a hospital in nineteen fifty two. She was eighty years old. Today we might take Mary and go Pennington Science for granted but she helped save millions of lives by educating society about food safety

Could the Great Depression Happen Again?

"Hey, brain stuff. Lauren voelpel bomb here. If you live through the great depression, that started in the late nineteen twenty s and lasted until the beginning of world or two, it's hard to imagine just how rough many ordinary Americans had it at the depressions peak in nineteen thirty three the nation's gross domestic product have been cut roughly in half and nearly one in four American workers was unemployed since they didn't have money to pay their mortgages, the foreclosure rate more than doubled, and people who lost their homes found themselves, arresting cardboard and scrap wood shacks and living in camps notice, Hoover villes on the edge of towns and cities, named after president Herbert Hoover who many blamed for the depression, in an interview published by the Federal Reserve Bank of Saint Louis in two thousand seven two men who survived, the depression, describe, how people around them often were so desperate for food that they eagerly routed through garbage bins at markets for discarded vegetables, and spoiled chicken carcasses, even after Franklin Roosevelt's new deal program eased, some of the deprivation the nation's battered, economy continue to struggle right up until the war. Brought a mass. Surge in government spending and created jobs at defense plans for those who didn't go off to fight overseas. But why did the great depression happen and could it ever happened again? The pressures causes have been a longtime subject of debate by historians and communists, though, there seems to be a consensus that the economic disaster was the result of multiple factors. Some of which led to the event, while others worsened or prolonged it, and while the nation's economy, the financial system and government regulation have changed considerably since the nineteen twenties. And thirties, experts warned that we're still not immune some of the same risks contributed to the catastrophe worse, yet some stakes of that era are now being repeated at the top of the list is income inequality. We spoke with Robert S MC, elven a history, professor at Millsaps college in Mississippi and author of the great depression, America nineteen twenty nine to nineteen forty one. He says the US shifted during the nineteen twenties. Twin economy, heavily dependent upon consumption of mass produced goods ranging from automobiles to radios while sales of those products. Drove up. Office for factory owners and retailers, most American workers wages grew much more slowly. Eventually he notes, people didn't have enough money to buy more things, and keep the economy, going businesses tried to cope by extending consumer credit and allowing people to gradually pay off their purchases. But they didn't have enough income to keep buying new stuff as well in the summer of nineteen twenty nine to avoid having inventory, pile-up factory started cutting back on production, and laying off workers those workers, then couldn't buy things which meant even more products piled up that started the economy on a downward spiral that contributed to a four day stock market crash in late October of nineteen twenty nine which raised a quarter of the value of the Dow Jones industrial average wiping out investors and severely damaging public confidence circa, nineteen twenties. Income inequality was exacerbated by a series of tax cuts pushed through congress by secretary of the treasury. Andrew w Mellon, extensively to stimulate the economy as one of the world's richest men Mellon personally benefited from the cuts more than. Practically all the tax payers in the state of Nebraska, as one political opponent of the Bill pointed out, ninety years later income, inequality is growing, and it's a threat to an economy, which depends upon personal consumption of two thirds of its economic output, and congress in two thousand seventeen past a massive tax cut package, which most Americans see themselves as not benefiting from. In addition to income inequality, there was a lot of investment speculation going on. There's a difference between investing and speculating, which invested pedia defines as putting your money into high risk investments in hopes of making a killing, but in the nineteen twenties, when everything seemed to be booming investors often were a bit too, trusting. We also spoke with Todd new p- a professor of economics and business at Cornell college in Vernon Iowa. He said, many people think of the dust bowl or the stock market crash, as the proximate cause of the great depression. But in reality, it was caused by the same factors that have caused financial crises throughout history in the US and elsewhere, debt financed speculation. In other words when people find it too easy to borrow other people's money to speculate on risky ventures. Stocks bonds, subprime housing, etc. Then people risk too much and prices boom, only to eventually bust decades later. Unfortunately, we're still vulnerable to that psychological flaw. Nuke said, markets are prone to. That this time it's different only to find out again. And again that it is usually not. In the nineteen twenties. The United States was also dealing with some bad Federal Reserve policy today were accustomed to thinking of the Federal Reserve, the nation central Bank as the guardian of the economy, that's because it's board could use monetary policy control of the supply of money and credit to stimulate the economy, when it needs a boost or to put on the brakes when inflation is starting to creep upward, but in a two thousand four lecture, former fed chairman, Ben banenky detailed his theory that ninety years ago. The fed dropped the ball with policy blunders that helped cause, prolonged the great depression, starting in nineteen twenty eight the fed hoping to put the brakes on Wall Street speculators who are investing borrowed money started raising interest rates that policy succeeded a little too, well as evidenced, by the stock market's catastrophic drop in October of nineteen twenty nine but then even after the stock market collapsed, the fed kept increasing interest rates, the reason was that the US like many other countries was on the gold standard, meaning that the dollar was redeemable in gold and pegged. To its value. When pennant investors started trading their dollars for gold, the fed moved to thwart them, Brennan key explained in his speech to stabilize the dollar the fed once, again raised interest rates sharply on the view that currency speculators would be less willing to liquidate dollar assets if they could earn a higher rate of return on them, but the high interest rates made it tough for businesses to borrow two whether the hard times, and many went bankrupt as a result at the same time according to banenky, the fed also didn't do enough to protect the nation's banks leading depositors to out their savings and hoard the cash further worsening the economic crisis. The US wasn't the only country with such problems. We also spoke with within you'll Klein and assistant professor of economics at the university of Redlands an expert on economic history. He said the gold standard helped things along by limited in the policy responsive nations around the world. Things like lower interest rates, and government deficit spending or made much more difficult. In addition, while Great Britain, provided global economic leadership before World War, One after. The war, the US, essentially, refused to lead despite being the new center of the world economy. Fortunately, this is one area where policymakers learned their lesson Klein said in the end countries dropped the gold standard and many engaged in deficit, spending, and monetary policy, and the US established its leadership under the Bretton Woods agreement about nineteen forty four packed created the World Bank, and the International Monetary Fund as well as eliminating gold standard internationally. On the other hand, as a candidate Donald Trump said that bringing back the gold standard, quote would be very hard to do. But boy, would it be wonderful as president, he considered nominating to the fed board, Herman Cain, who wrote in two thousand twelve in the Wall Street Journal that the dollar should be redefined as quote, a fixed quantity of gold, though. In a recent interview Kane backed away from that position. And Stephen Moore and other past gold standard advocate told CNN that he now favored, petting the currency to a quote, whole basket of commodities both later withdrew from consideration in the face of political opposition. One of the other big factors that led to the depression was trade wars, the smoot-hawley act, which was written in early nineteen twenty nine when the economy was still going strong but became law after the Wall Street crash raised US tariffs by an average of sixteen percent. The idea was to keep other countries from hurting US manufacturers by flooding the market with lower priced products. But when those countries responded by imposing their own tariffs result was a ruinous, global decline in trade, the deepened and lengthened the great depression, that bit of history, worries many people today due to President Trump's fondness for imposing tariffs in an effort to protect us industries. So many of the factors that contributed to the great depression are still risks whether they will ever combine an economic perfect storm is a harder question to answer.

"Eighty WCBS marklevinshow on WCBS the following WCBS CDN program has been prerecorded at this time. He's here. Now broadcasting from the underground command post deep in the bowels of a hidden bunker somewhere under the brick and steel of a nondescript building, we've once again made contact with our leader. Oh, everybody. Mark Levin here. Our number eight seven seven three eight one three eight one one eight seven seven three eight one three eight one one now. We move into a new and exciting area. Ladies. Back to the second amendment. Back to the second amendment. One of the things that. Really? Gets me down from time to time. In order to persuade our fellow citizens to a point of view. We need statesman who make the case. So for instance, when it came to amnesty for one point eight million dreamers eleven million illegal aliens all toll eleven million. People will say see I told you that will never happen. See Trump is being strategic. See this. See, I don't view the world. And my principles and events through Trump or any other politician. That's not how my head works. That's not how my mind working. It's not how your mind should work either. Whether it's Trump Bush, Oregan, whatever. I don't define. What's going on or define what I believe through the mind? Of another human being. Particularly a president. What bothers me. Is everything shouldn't be in his not tactical and strategic and dealing. You've got to make the case to the American people right now, we're making the case the American people for amnesty. We're making the case to the American people. For Bernie Sanders. Herbert Hoover type protectionist tariffs. And now we're making the case to the American people that the NRA. Is a hideous organization. And that the second amendment. Is a killing amendment. And it's bipartisan. Spy partisan. All these lost opportunities. How do you expect to win elections? How do you expect to build your base excite the base that exists and expand your base, if you don't make the case for ideas? Instead, you're always talking tactically and strategically and the president's doing this for this. And I told you he wouldn't do that. What what does that have to do anything? Nothing. Unless you seek to abandon your basic belief system and principles. Which I choose not to do. Now. I chose not to do yesterday. And I won't do tomorrow. Here's the president. On the Bill of rights. Which includes the second amendment and by the way, the president didn't run on gun control anymore. Then you ran on amnesty. People say, well, he ran on tariffs. Like, you're not allowed to check to it. Anyway. Yeah. But he didn't run on amnesty. And he didn't run on gun control. He's doing that to cut one. Go the focus is to literally give families and give local.

"You're listening to the Larry O'Connor shell grass music. This is an interesting way they went about doing it as two thousand seven. So I I think, you know, having another ten years to look back at Reagan. It gives you a little bit more perspective. But let's look at this poll what they did was they asked Americans which president they had favorable or unfavorable opinion. And then just rank them in that order and number one, George Washington, right? I number two ABRAHAM LINCOLN, then Thomas Jefferson, then teddy Roosevelt. Ben Franklin Roosevelt. John F Kennedy John Adams, James, Madison. Ronald reagan. That's interesting. And that was that was like twelve years ago Reagan coming in with seventy two percent favorable twenty two percent unfavorable, and that's how they rank in terms of public opinion polls. Now, I gotta tell you, and that's fine. And listen people have their popularity one way or the other I suppose I wonder if those people who said John Adams was right up there. One two. They actually forget about that teddy. Teddy roosevelt. So Theodore Roosevelt number four on the list. I wish the poll would then to a follow up question. And then say, oh, so tell me one achievement of Theodore Roosevelt's presidency, you really stand behind. What did you love about Theodore Roosevelt or Thomas Jefferson for that matter? Does a great, man. Don't get me wrong. I'm not a huge fan of his presidency. Although he was a better president than he was the secretary of state. Well, all right. What do you say see to me right now? We're looking at Washington Lincoln Reagan. I I don't see any other presidency. Faced with what Reagan was faced with it. He was able to accomplish. And by the way, unite this nation to such a level that he got forty nine hundred fifty states in his reelection campaign. Are you telling me how about? Bob in Frederick, Bob. Your first up here on WFAN. Well, let me say that Johnson was the worst president in my life. Yeah. Lately. Screwed up Vietnam. He politicized. Race relations and just with the first one to really push the United States that direction. Down in the twentieth century. I would say Vilson. What's the worst? President Obama was probably worse number one and number two or very easy. Reagan too. Herbert Hoover laugh. Right. I bother sawed through. Thank you, Bob. Yeah. I wasn't. I wasn't alive for Johnson's presidency. But boy, I think I think he's right up there. Just in terms of the last hundred years as being one of our worst. I I don't understand the hagiography geography around Johnson. Thank you for that. And Obama was technically not the last century. He was very much of this century. All right. How about Tony in Silver Spring answered my rhetorical question. What did Jimmy Carter? Do. That was good. All right. You get it to me. Hi, I'm on the air. Yes. You are. Go ahead. Hi. Yeah. In all he's not my favorite president by a long shot. But in all fairness he did pass the airline deregulation act. When I when I talk to people about deregulation. That's a classic example of very successful deregulation revolution before that, you know, people who are less affluent just had to get on greyhound and travel for five plus our. Yeah. Nola. Thank you. You're right. Tony. I wanna give him some do. And I appreciate his true the deregulation of the airline industry that I don't know if he was fully in favor of it though, by way. If I remember right at the beginning. But there you go. There you go. We got our answer Tony in Silver Spring. I appreciate it. How about Penelope and Dumfries? Do you just jumped in? But I love what you have to say. Go ahead Penelope. Well, Hello there. I'm I'm I'm kind appreciative of this topic because I was a freshman in college. Kennedy in the primary, and I couldn't stand to hear Ronald Reagan, even on the radio. I heard his voice. I was like, yeah. I soon though was converted if you will because the truth was shining. For me by the pro-life make you will other means, but especially for lightning. And so I've actually saw him as the hero that he wasn't is and subsequently served for him in the United States army, and I do consider him one of the great. Wow. So you hated him in college, and you even campaign for teddy Kennedy campaign. In the primary. But now as as an, but as the years went on you now see him as as a great president very long for me 'cause I very involved in in college. But I think it just shows is why willing to admit that, you know, because I'm a super conservative is it. Yes. As a young person eighteen I I was caught up a little bit. And if you will progressiveness, but it didn't take long for the truth to win out. And I think we always have to have faith in our young people that if they are given the truth. Indoctrinated against it. If they're giving the truth, they will eventually get there because you know, it didn't take that long for me. Once I kind of saw things in black and white which is why am I said will lead to the president? I can't stand. Hard for me, anybody who had played we have got to see the truth of that. And this is why Lincoln also stands up as a great man who was willing to put our country at war to end slavery. That's interesting. So so you can't stand. What you can't stand Washington because he was a slave owner. Well, I don't think he wrote that we hold them up. I think we have to start seeing that truth because it continues to be a star. Well, listen, but why does it continue to as I would love to engage you in that conversation because understand why continues to be a scarf after the civil war after the efforts of president Lincoln after the incredible achievements. That had been gained in this country. It shouldn't still be a scar on our country, and George Washington should be judged through the prism of his time in the roic heroic freeing, his slaves in his will that he then had published in distributed all around the young nation as an example to lead the way that that was a major major aspect of his character. And should not be discounted. All right..
