"These companies say they are all four which would bring more transparency to political advertising. But we have yet to see what type of. A regulation will come from all of this. And in this hearing that is just about wrapping up one of the lawmakers actually derided, the chairman of the house energy commerce committee saying that despite the litany of hearings that have been held over the past several months. There's almost nothing to show for it. From the side of the lawmakers. Laura will we see action here, or is this just going to be a lot of talk? So I think we will eventually see action. But I think there's going to be a lot of talk before that still I do really worry is Selena just alluded to that in particular on some of the more partisan aspects of this issue that it's going to be very difficult to get legislation to actually move. There are a number of pieces of legislation that have been introduced with bipartisan support in both houses of congress, but they have not seen hearings markups in their committees or any kind of floor time in terms of actually moving forward. I think at this point the chances of serious legislation moving anytime before the midterms is really unrealistic. And I think the focus has to be ongoing on how we look forward. But I absolutely agree that the kinds of proposals that Senator Warner performed in his white paper. They were essentially for him. You know, some of them were were rather provocative. But that's what he wanted it to be. This is the conversation. Our policy makers needs to be having the reality is Europe is regulating in this space. They're sort of beginning to. Chart the global roles. China through its market alone is beginning to set the global roles if we in the United States aren't actually setting forth what he's smart regulatory framework is that protects privacy. That is consistent with free market principles that continues to allow for innovation. Other countries are going to be setting the rules for us. And that's not an interest either. All right, Laura, Rosenberger of the alliance for securing democracy as well as our very own Selena weighing thanks so much. We're gonna continue to cover this throughout the show. I do want to mention though that President Trump is speaking right now at the White House. He's talking about this op Ed in the New York Times written by an anonymous Trump administration official very critical of the president's leadership. He calls. It gutless says it's a disgrace says that if he wasn't in office, the New York Times would probably fail more from that later on we'll continue to monitor those headlines.

"Massar and Jason Kelly from Bloomberg radio I think what, Google and what others are doing if you look, at what's going on Twitter if, you look at what's going on in Facebook. They better be careful because you're you. Can't do that to people to kill. That's obviously President Trump earlier this week he, is taking aim at social media he is obviously a. Power user on Twitter but he's turned his attention to Google Facebook and others he's talking once. Again about bias saying some of these social media sites are biased against. Himself we've often seen these arguments come up among conservatives saying bias against conservatives this is a big. Issue, right now for these companies and coming up in just a few days Carol Jack. Dorsey Sheryl Sandberg making their way to Capitol Hill to face questions from lawmakers Twitter, specifically finds itself in a bit of an uncomfortable position wanting to remain, relevant but facing. Questions about whether it's doing some things. That it shouldn't be it's all about they don't want to. Lose any users Selena Wang's going. To be up on Capitol Hill as. Well we got a preview from her it's going to be a marathon week For Jack Dorsey he's debut eating in front of, congressional lawmakers he's going to be, testifying in front of the house and in. The Senate when he's fighting in front. Of the Senate he will be joined. By Facebook and Google they'll be discussing the, ongoing concerns about Russian meddling foreign manipulation in elections on. The social media platforms and how they've been promoting divisive behavior in society and later in the. Day he will be testifying again in front of the house and this. Will be more focused on issues of censorship there have been lots of allegations that social media companies. Have, this anti conservative bias and Twitter has been criticized for alleged shadow banning of suppressing. Conservative views and this is really Jack Dorsey chance to show that they are a, political and this is how their processes work and that some of the, criticism that has. Befallen them over the past several months. Are really the results of these apolitical processes that they have. And we should mention the stakes. Got even higher as the president himself Tweeted about his perception that these platforms are indeed biased so, Selena I have to point out that Jack, Dorsey is coming to Washington he will be. There with Sheryl Sandberg as well it sounds like this is notable in part because the last time these guys showed up in Washington the big guns. Did not come in what's, the change in tone and why the change in personnel, there there's been so much pressure on Twitter for the. Leader for the chief executive officer to show up you can remember that this isn't, the first time that these companies have been asked to testify they've been, asked to come for several different rounds and in the previous rows Twitter sent, over its general council head of legal and for the house energy commerce committee hearing the actually threatened to subpoena Twitter if Jack Dorsey did not agree to come so this is really. Escalating over several months and I think at this point Jack Dorsey really Didn't have a choice but to show up and to testify Mark Zuckerberg already did testify several months ago. And I think Jack has a lot to. Learn from what Mark Zuckerberg did so I. Don't think we should be expecting, too many surprises I for my sources at the Twitter team is hard. At work training Jack Dorsey to stick to his talking points so. So in as you mentioned Facebook and Google. Have faced similar situations going before lawmakers and you put this in your story you say Twitter is in a much more precarious position. I think this is key to what you're writing about this week tell us about this precarious position for Twitter. So, Twitter isn't quite like as larger rivals and doesn't have endless cash reserves and resources, to be able to deal with this issue and it doesn't have the, employee base to do the same type of content moderation of. Abusive, and hateful content however, Twitter which Jack Dorsey has made this point before has huge societal consequences and importations and. It's held to the same standards, as a YouTube as a Facebook but, it doesn't have the same resources to back it up now on top of that, Twitter at this precarious point in its lifetime is really on the cost of. This turnaround and over the past several months it's been showing To investors at his. Able able to, survive as this independent company that's able to generate sustainable growth however at, this point in time it's caught between, this very contentious political debate that's threatens to derail some. Of this growth they can afford to lose one or two Alex. Jones off of its platform but if this. Perception of anti conservative bias continues to spread they could potentially face the loss of many users and remind us what's happened with Alex. Jones specifically because he an info wars had been at the center of this debate for all of these social. Media, platforms Twitter at least initially went a different way on that decision bring us up, to date on that the saga is quite convoluted but it really started, when the larger platforms like Facebook and apple and YouTube decided. To, remove most of Alex Jones content from their platforms it hasn't been a new criticism that they should move Alex Jones from their pot forms it's, been ongoing for Several years oust Jones is a notorious right leaning conspiracy theorists and some of his. Most, egregious theorists include claiming that, the sandy hook shooting was actually an elaborate hoax and many critics say that those types of conspiracies are actually abusive and spreading hateful content as well as claiming that. Some people that have been involved in these tragedies are actually, crisis actors now Twitter when the other pot firms decided to remove Jones is content they said that we're leaving him up he hasn't violated any of our policies this is just continuing to do our business and. Obviously, after Jack Dorsey came out and said that there was. An outpouring of criticism that yes Twitter. Maybe following its rules but, perhaps it's just think a little bit more about the ethical implications even though it may want to appear as this a-political platform the simply. Following its established processes after that a CNN reporter flag several tweets that directly violated Twitter's. Rules and when that Was flagged Twitter then went back and deleted some of those tweets so then Alex Jones came out with some other. Content and Twitter banned for a week so it's a lot of this sort of. Back and forth right and. It just shows the delicate position that Jack Dorsey, Twitter is in at this point right he doesn't want to alienate anyone too much whether it's conservatives whether. It's liberals because he needs it for the growth of the platform I think a bigger question you dig into this is whether it's a social media company or is it a media company. And, that, might change things all of these companies want to be social, media platforms they wanna be voices for. Everybody the far left far right and. Everybody in between because it's in these best. Interests of these platforms to be that way because they can have the most growth in the, most, users, but I did speak, with ride weezer at pebble research and he brings up an interesting point that maybe it's not actually Twitter's best interest to pose themselves, as this advice platform perhaps they should embrace their personal political leanings and be truthful and honest about that. And really just Hater to. Maybe an even more niche audience but with that particular. Audience they can have a more. Trusting relationship and though that may mean fewer users it's not necessarily a bad thing for profitability because advertisers may lightly idea that it has a strong connection with that user base even. If it's smaller great stuff looking forward to your dispatches, thanks so much thank you you're listening to Bloomberg BusinessWeek coming up a look into the turnaround of German automaker OPEL they're. Still around that's the that's now running the company called the anti Elon Musk interesting. This is Bloomberg A commercial message.

"house energy commerce committee" Discussed on Bloomberg Radio New York

"Bloomberg BusinessWeek with Carol Massar and Jason Kelly from. Bloomberg radio I think what Google and what, others are doing if you look at what's, going on Twitter if you look at what's going on Facebook They better be careful because you're you. Can't do that to people secure that's obviously President Trump earlier this week he is taking aim. At social media he is obviously a power user on Twitter but he's turned. His attention to Google Facebook and others he's talking once again about bias saying some of these social. Media, sites are biased against himself we've often seen these arguments come up among conservatives saying. Their bias against conservatives this is a big issue right now for these companies and, coming up in just a few days Carol Jack Dorsey Sheryl Sandberg making, their way to Capitol Hill to face questions from. Lawmakers Twitter specifically finds itself in a bit of an uncomfortable. Position wanting to remain relevant but. Facing questions about whether it's doing some things that it. Shouldn't be it's all about they don't wanna lose any users Selena Wang's going to be up on. Capitol Hill as well we got a preview from her it's going to be a marathon, week for Jack Dorsey he's debut eating in front of congressional lawmakers is going to be testifying, in front of the house and in the Senate. When he starts fighting in front of the, Senate he will be joined by Facebook and Google they'll. Be discussing the ongoing concerns about Russian meddling for manipulation in elections on these social media platforms. And how they've been promoting divisive behavior in society and later in the day. He will be testifying again in front of the house and this will be more focused on issues. Of, censorship there have been lots of allegations that social media companies have this anti conservative. Bias and Twitter has been criticized for alleged shadow banning of suppressing conservative views and, this is really Jack Dorsey chance to show that they are a political, and this is how their processes work and that. Some of the criticism that has befallen them over the past. Several months are really the results. Of these apolitical processes that they have and we should. Mention the stakes even higher as the president himself tweeted about his perception that these platforms are indeed biased so Selena I have to point out that Jack, Dorsey is coming to Washington he will be there with Cheryl Sandberg, as well it sounds like this is notable. In part because the last time these guys showed up in Washington the big guns did not come in what's the change in tone and why the. Change in personnel there there's, been so much pressure on Twitter for their leader for, the chief executive officer to show up you can remember. That this isn't the first time that these companies have been asked to testify they've, been asked to come for several different rounds and in the previous rows, Twitter has sent over its general counsel is head of legal and for the, house energy commerce committee hearing they actually threatened to subpoena Twitter if Jack Dorsey did not agree to con- so this is really escalating over several months and I think at this point. Jack Dorsey really didn't have a, choice but to show up and to testify Mark Zuckerberg already did testify several months ago. And I Think. Jack has a lot to learn from what Mark Zuckerberg, did so I don't think we should be expecting too many surprises. No for my sources at the Twitter team is. Hard at work training Jack Dorsey to stick to his talking points so and as you mentioned Facebook, and Google have faced similar situations going. Before lawmakers and you put this in? Your story you say Twitter. Is in a much more precarious position I think this is key to what you're writing about this. Week tell us about this precarious position for Twitter Twitter isn't quite like its larger rivals and. Doesn't have endless cash reserves and resources to be. Able to deal with this, issue and it doesn't have the employee base to do the same type of content moderation of abusive and hateful content however Twitter which Jack. Dorsey has made this point before has huge societal consequences and importations and it's held to. The same standards as a YouTube, as a Facebook but it doesn't have, the same resources to back it up now on top of that Twitter sort of, at this A, precarious point in its lifetime is really on the cost of this turnaround and over the past several months it's. Been. Showing to investors at his able able to survive as independent company that's able, to generate sustainable growth however at this, point in time it's caught between this very contentious political. Debate that's threatens to derail some of this growth they can afford. To lose one or two Alex Jones off. Of its platforms but if this perception of anti conservative bias continues to spread they could potentially face the loss of many users. And remind us what's happened with Alex Jones specifically because he an info wars had been at the center of. This, debate for all of these social media platforms Twitter at least initially went a different, way on that decision brings up today on that the saga is quite, convoluted but it really started when the larger platforms like Facebook. And apple and YouTube decided to remove most of our Alex Jones content from their, platforms it hasn't been a. New criticism that they should move Alex Jones from their platforms it's been ongoing. For several years Alex Jones is, a notorious right leaning conspiracy theorists and some of his most agree just theories include claiming that the sandy hook. Shooting, was actually an elaborate hoax, and many critics say that those types of conspiracies are actually abusive and spreading hateful content as well as claiming that some people that have been involved in these tragedies. Are actually crisis actors now Twitter when the other firms decided, to remove Jones content they said that we're leaving him up he hasn't violated any of our policies this is we're just continuing to do our business and obviously after Jack Dorsey came out and said that there. Was, an outpouring of criticism that yes Twitter maybe following its rules but perhaps it's just. Think a little bit more, about the ethical implications even though it may want to appear as this apolitical platform the simply following its established Processes after that a CNN reporter flag several, tweets that directly violated Twitter's rules and when that was flagged Twitter then went back and deleted some of those tweets so. Then Alex Jones came out with some other content and. Twitter banned him for a week so it's a lot of this sort of back. And forth right and it just. Shows the delicate position that Jack Dorsey Twitter's in at this point right he doesn't. Want to alienate anyone too much whether it's conservatives whether it's liberals because he. Needs it for the growth of the platform I think a bigger question you dig into this is whether it's a social media company or is it a media company and that might change. Things, all, of these companies want to be social media platforms, they wanna be voices for everybody the. Far left far right and everybody in. Between because it's in the best interest of these. Platforms to be that way because they can have the most growth in the most users but, I, did, speak with ride weezer, at pebble research and he brings up an interesting point that maybe it's not actually Twitter's best interest to pose themselves as this unbiased, platform perhaps they should embrace Their personal political leanings and. Be truthful and honest about that and really just cater to maybe an even more niche audience but with that particular audience they can have more trusting. Relationship and though that may mean fewer users it's not. Necessarily a bad thing for profitability. Because advertisers may like the idea that it has a strong connection with that user base even if it's smaller great stuff looking forward to your dispatches from DC thanks so much thank. You you're listening to Bloomberg BusinessWeek coming up a look, into the turnaround of German automaker OPEL they're still around that's the that's now.

"Have wisconsin when you start to sort of like here what's going on here it becomes even that much more problematic right now there are two options for patients who seeking experimental medications a one is enrolling critical clinical trials does suming they're eligible or participating in the fda's expanded access program the agency has said that it approves almost all such requests that program so they're already exist a mechanism right however with this new bill drug manufacturers wouldn't have to go through the fda at all they would have to report socalled adverse events in other words things that went really wrong including premature deaths only once a year and the bar in which a what constitutes adverse events not just in terms of like people's premature deaths but the bar in terms of causality is is weakened so the agency would also be restricted in how it could use that information when it's a considering the experimental treatments for approval so in other words we reported that we had some premature deaths but you can't necessarily look at that when we're looking for approval so this is really basically a way to undercut the fda frank pallone the ranking democrat on the house energy commerce committee basically said this is just going to allow fly by night physicians in clinics the opportunity to peddle false hope and ineffective drugs two desperate patients but it's also the case that every major patient group overwhelmingly opposes this measure so this is sort of like one of those nice sounding but obvious attempts to destroy our regulatory structure and and for pharmaceutical companies to make another buck.
