On the PGA Tour second straight win for Tony finau in Detroit is at 26 under par in New Jersey the live tour winner and Rick stenson John Stacy our Bloomberg sports Nathan. Thank you John 6 37 on Wall Street time to take a look at stocks. Some of the names moving in the pre market and apparently the box office with Bloomberg radio and TV markets correspondent pretty Gupta based on what's on your early morning list. Good morning creedy. Good morning, Nathan. Let's start off with a question. Have you seen the D.C. league of super pets? I don't know what the D.C. league of super pets is. You know, I didn't either until I looked at Warner Brothers discovery stock. WBD. 1%. Don't worry, it all comes full circle. It wasn't around. This is a movie. It's an animated family film from Warner Brothers. It did top a Uighur North American box office this weekend $23 million in its opening weekend across 4000 domestic cinemas. This is huge for Warner Brothers. This looks like it got quite a bit and of course, as we know, we've talked about this with AMC a lot when they have a big movie release. For example, Spider-Man: No Way Home. You saw AMC stock rally it's a similar story here with Warner Brothers discovery. So nevertheless, WBD is one of your pre market movers up here up about 1% this morning Nathan. All right, so it's a movie, I guess, is what we're getting from that. All right, so what else is high flying this morning? High flying. What a clever clever word of play. Boeing is the one we're going to look at next but BA is your ticker. The shares are up, get this 4% and climbing. So some good news is usually not something you see from Boeing shares that they have been under quite a lot of pressure lately. Two bits of good news here. At the first part, they have averted for a few days at least in August 1st strike by 2500 machinists that would have crippled its St. Louis area fighter jet plans. The U.S. regulators had approved the plan to inspect and repair these tiny structural flaws in Boeing 7 87 Dreamliner. That's the second part of the good news. That's a major milestone towards resuming deliveries that really haven't gone anywhere since late 2020. So bonus number one is that August 1st strike, it looks like it is delayed and the bonus number two is that those U.S. regulators did approve the plans to inspect so a little bit of regulatory help from there as well. Nevertheless, BA is your ticker. About 4% this morning and also keep in mind that those deliveries are really important when it comes to Boeing kind of building back up their backlog. Remember they've had a lot of tensions with this kind of COVID era. So to have those shares higher is once again a very big deal. Nathan, I'm going to end here with some crypto as well love to talk about it. We do have a Bitcoin dropping under pressure once again, probably in line with some of the risk sentiment you're seeing in stocks that are you commodities as well. But it's taking with it down some of these crypto stocks, ride blockchain, for example, the minor IoT down 3.7% who also had the likes of coinbase coin is your Tiger down 1.8%, Nathan. And that's something you're seeing across the crypto complex this morning. All right, Bloomberg radio and TV markets correspondent pretty Gupta with us as we get ready to kick off a new trading month for watching futures move a touch lower. We have S&P futures right now down 8 points, Dow futures down 25. That's little changed. NASDAQ futures down 30 points a drop of about a quarter of 1%. Ten year treasury is down two 30 seconds, the yield 2.65% and the yield on the two year

"Pandemic hangover type thing or what, but I'm, you know, mildly excited about the Thor, love and thunder. So I'd put that at number 5 for me. The Elvis movie from baz luhrmann, I'm still really intrigued by I know you have your skepticism when it comes to lower men. But Elvis, I'm going to see what I'm going to see what we've got there. Could be interesting. Here's a really under the radar one that popped up only to me on in my research. And it's Neptune frost, which is coming to theaters June 3. I'm just going to read this description from IndieWire Jude dry. Again, writing on IndieWire, the experimental afrofuturist musical from multidisciplinary artist Saul Williams and anasa Yemen defies categorization, which is what makes it so exciting and confounding. Part contemporary operetta part anarchist sci-fi saga, the dream like tale follows a gender shifting soothsayer and an off the grid hacker enclave as they Dodge the ravages of a senseless resource war. So after I've recovered from men, hopefully I will be ready for Neptune frost, which just sounds possibly quite dazzling. Crimes of the future, the new cronenberg, that's my second most anticipated, of course, which we've mentioned, I think, comes out in June, and then Jordan Peele's nope is at the top of my list. Can not wait. Okay. Well, you said anything could be great, and I was all in on that bubbly optimism, Josh. I was going to adopt it. It was going to be my whole new mantra. Not your right movies on life. Really? So struck a chord and then you mentioned baz luhrmann's Elvis and does not hold does not hold. No, I know I can't go there. My top 5, well, I've got a top four and we've mentioned all of them. So I don't really have a lot to add. If I was going just strictly in order of the movies I most want to see, at number four, I'd have the Miller, 3000 years of longing. Number three men, the Alex Garland film, we're going to talk about next week. Number two, or no, it's really number one. Okay, fine. I'm going to go nope at number two. And yeah, damn it. I'm going Top Gun: Maverick at number one. I mean, at this point, you kind of have to. Yeah, I have to. My number 5 might either be the cronenberg though. Oh man, we talked about horror earlier, body horror makes me makes me squirm even more of course. So I'll be watching that with my eyes closed. I am, of course, very curious about the new Claire Denis as well talked about that a little was Steve procope last week as it's playing the Chicago critics film festival here coming up. The music box is called both sides of the blade. All I need to hear is that Juliet bonos is in it, but then Vincent London in it as well so good in teton. Last year, but maybe Josh, I would go with a little more populous choice. I am intrigued by the gray man, July 15th theaters, streaming on Netflix on the 22nd. I'm seeing some things about how it's supposed to be like Netflix's big tentpole movie of the year, their most expensive movie to date, which doesn't usually give me much confidence, but it comes to us from the Russo brothers and really why I'm excited is that it's a spy movie, which I'm usually a sucker for. Starring Ryan Gosling. You throw in Chris Evans and their former assassins or they formerly worked together at the CIA and now they're tracking each other sort of a cat and mouse game. I like those performers a lot. Add in on a day armus, Regé-Jean Page, who many may remember from the first season of Bridgerton. I have a feeling I will be plopping myself down on the couch if not in the theater around July 22nd to see the gray man on Netflix. And I suppose I have one other question. I'll stick in the art house here and I'll give you one more question, which is, am I ready for a Peter Strickland comedy? Peter Strickland. The filmmaker behind barbarian sound studio behind the duke of burgundy. There might be some elements in both of those films you would describe as humorous. I don't know what they would be, but if I remember someone could possibly pick out a few interesting scenes and then he's got a new film out called flux Gourmet, this is the description. Set at an institute devoted to culinary and alimentary performance. A collective finds itself embroiled in power struggles, artistic vendettas, and gastrointestinal disorders. So going to be a little bit of a head scratcher, as you would expect from Strickland, seems like it might make you a little bit uncomfortable at times as we talk about stomach problems in those gastrointestinal disorders. And yet it's supposed to be funny, Josh. Summer blockbuster sounds like stereotypical summer blockbuster to me. Apparently so those are our top 5 summer movie questions.

"Not often here on film spotting, we get to talk about movies that feature clever crustaceans. Josh, but that's the case with the new the tale of king crab, which is about Luciano, who's a wandering outcast in rural 19th century Italy. Alcohol and forbidden love send him into turmoil. And after a tragedy, he is exiled to the distant Argentine province of Tierra del Fuego, where with the help of ruthless gold diggers and that clever crustacean. He searches for a mythical treasure on his way toward redemption and we have not seen this film yet, Josh, but in terms of the movies that it bears resemblance to. Some films that are pretty notable and appreciated by us, including lucretia martell's zama, reviewed here on the show and one of my favorites. It's a film that had some stiff competition, I think, in round one of film spotting madness, Werner Herzog's agera, the wrath of God. Yeah, aguirre mentioned so many times on the show clearly a favorite of ours. Another title that's been thrown out there that is somewhat in the same vein of the tale of king crab is Roland jaffe is the mission. I love the mission. And zama, you're so right. I think in 2018, I forget exactly where it landed, but lucretia martell zama, Adam, was on my top ten lists. So impressive company there for this film to be compared to. Yeah. Absolutely. Our friends at IndieWire call it part Herzog and ecstatic ethnography and part puzzle linen picaresque well done IndieWire and the international cinephile society says an atmospheric masterpiece, an unforgettable chronicle of humanity.

Now it's time for your film section because this is a cultural magazine, a man is planning on missing the birth of his child to see the new Batman film with Robert Pattinson, Tim Stevenson, you have a man. I don't also have a Robert Pattinson yet. So apparently this is a story from IndieWire, a man is not going to be attending the birth of his child to see The Batman, that kind of sounds like you're taking the pierce. I'm going to see The Batman. But this is men doing stupid shit news. It's like our second story of men doing stupid shit. So apparently at first appeared on the am I the asshole thread on Reddit, where a woman came on and said, am I the asshole for thinking that my partner should show up to the birth of our child instead of going to see fat man? He said that he needed to see at the same day because of spoilers. What about the sex of your kid? Isn't that a spoiler alert? It's not a cape crusader, but everyone else is going to know before you. Do you know what else is going to be at least two hours and 44 minutes long and incredibly emotional? The birth of your child and it's obviously too late for this woman to back out of having a kid with this asshole. Like I can't work it out. I don't understand what the logic is. Maybe did his wife had COVID and then he thinks she had sex with a bat? Is this some kind of revenge plot? I don't know what's going on. But I will say this when I was born, I've heard the story from my mom about the trauma of when I was born and apparently my dad turned up after my mom had already had me and was receiving blood transfusions, multiple blood transfusions, and apparently he came in and declared that's a lot of claret..

"Harris also with us is NPR political reporter. Danielle Kurtz lemon. Welcome back Danielle. Hello, I'm always happy to be here. You probably know a lot of the story, but here goes Monica Lewinsky was a White House intern with whom president Bill Clinton began a sexual relationship that took place in The White House. Later, when another woman named Paula Jones came forward with an accusation that Clinton had sexually harassed her, the investigation of that accusation came to include Lewinsky as well. That was partly because Lewinsky confided in an older friend named Linda Tripp, who secretly recorded their conversations about the relationship and turned them over to prosecutor Ken Starr. Clinton was eventually impeached for perjury and obstruction of justice, although he was eventually acquitted. Here there's an all star cast bringing all these people to life, beanie feldstein is Monica Lewinsky, Sarah Paulson, as Linda trip, annaleigh Ashford, as Paula Jones and Clive Owen as president Bill Clinton. There are also some smaller roles of note Billy eichner and Cobie Smulders as Matt drudge and Ann coulter and Edie Falco as Hillary Clinton who at least in the early going is not in this very much. The whole thing comes out of Ryan Murphy's very prolific shop, which did the previous American crime story in American Horror Story and all kinds of things and although a lot of his stuff is now on Netflix. This is on FX. So ayesha, Danielle and I have chatted a little bit about this show, but I don't think I've talked to you about it. What is your kind of bottom line on this show? The bottom line is that and I'm going to borrow from Ben Travers and IndieWire described it as more of a flashback than anything else. And I have to concur with that assessment. One of the things that made for me at least the people versus OJ, miniseries, very compelling, was the way it sort of toad this line between elements of camp and then elements of real seriousness in a way that was, I think, very well handled. And I mean, I think it helps that you have these sort of charismatic figures, and it also has this intention of reassessing the legacy of someone like Marcia Clark, the attorney who was prosecuting OJ. And Sarah Paulson also played that role. Here, this is just so dour and sour and I was ten years old or so when all of this was happening..

"To do our best to counter the message of hate by teaching young people to be tolerant and fair. It is obvious. The tongue in cheek humor is lost on many, especially the ones dealing death threats. Please take a moment and read the entire text will make an ally of you yet. We are proud of who we are. We are proud of what we say. Okay. Key sentence. There is Message to you from the gay community will continue to do our best to counter the message of hate by teaching young people to be tolerant, unfair. So, basically, what you're saying is that the song is not actually a parody while you're actually suggesting is that While the song is done in the mode of parody. The underlying message, which is that we wish to teach your Children are values. That part is correct. Right? We are making your kids more tolerant and fair by teaching them what we want to teach them in schools. Now, you as a parent may object to this use a parent may say, Listen, I wish to teach my kids traditional sexual values and mores. I don't want my can forget any of that. I don't want my kids like K through six. I don't I don't believe that It's appropriate for kids who are five years old, too. Have to be taught. About a wide variety of gender fluidity and sexual orientation questions. It's confusing. It opposes natural law in in these sort of traditional Moralistic sense, but also in the logical sense. The negotiated the notion of general fluidity, opposes biology itself. Like I don't think that any of this is appropriate to be taught to Children. They forgot regardless of political view, and she's not appropriate. Forget The idea here is that we are going to change the next generation. Right? This is why, For example, there's an entire article recently in Indiewire. I think talking about how Children's animated shows were now being stacked. With radical LGBTQ propaganda content. Bisexual characters in Children's animated shows gender fluid characters, transgender characters in shows made for five and six years old by five and six year old. So the left has a very different vision of what America The radical left is very different vision of what America ought to be, and the way that they are going to achieve. This is by changing how your kids are taught. If you push back on them, and this, of course, makes you the true threat to the kids. This makes you this again. You want to separate the country? This is the easiest way of separating the country because, as I say, I'm not educate my kids help. I want to educate my kids and frankly, I am not interested. In what the San Francisco Gay men's choir things My kids should learn. I I don't really care. They're not. The parents are my kids. They don't know my kid's name. And they don't want the best for my kids. I want what's best markets. And I get to decide that's on the parent. The same thing holds true for it. Randi Weingarten, the American Federation of Teachers, it holds true for the National Education Association. It holds true for Joe Biden. It holds true for all these members of government. I get to decide. How I want to teach my kids when I would like to teach my kids, as it turns out, is a traditional sexual morality and traditional individual rights view of how the government should work with regard to race and sex. That's what I'd like to teach my kids. If you got a problem with that, frankly you can stick it. So here's the thing. A lot of this agenda is deeply unpopular and folks on the left. No, it's deeply unpopular. And so they are left with basically one club left. They're left with one club and that club that they've been using, and they're using it over and over these days in January, 6th They're relying more and more heavily on it. Look at how many times Democrats mentioned January 6th. It's day in and day out all the time, so just quick final about when it comes to the indoctrination. Of the kids again. There's there's no bones being made about this. The N E. A. The single largest teachers union, the country recently passed a resolution pledging to share and publicize information available on critical race theory, Welcome well, claiming that they're not teaching critical race theory. They Openly say that they want to provide an already created in depth study critiques, Empire white supremacy, anti blackness, anti injured indigenous city racism, patriarchy says hetero patriarchy, capitalism, embolism, anthropoid, centrism and other forms of power and oppression at the intersections of our society. Okay, I thought when, when I say that they are coming to indoctrinate your kids. It is because they believe quite correctly that how kids are educated when they are young makes a difference in how they grow up in what values they hold and so they are attempting. The radical left is to grab controls of your kids education and then never to see them to you again. Now there's some people on the right who seem to believe that the way that you fight this is quote unquote competition in the marketplace of ideas. When you're talking about public schools, where the curricula are established by the N E, A. And the F T in coordination with state legislators, this is not an option. Zero sum game. Somebody is going to decide the standards. Is it going to be you? Or is it going to be a bunch of radical left theorists who have decided that your kids are going to be tools in their attempts to evolve society toward the views they like? It was really interesting I mentioned before there's an article in The New York Times. In which they suggested and when I say they I mean a variety of authors, including a bunch of authors that that I generally like suggested that it's un American for state legislatures to try and ban critical race theory. They argue in the article that the educational mission is to help student turns students into well informed and discerning citizens. And they say that this is undermined by restrictions banning the teaching of critical race theory. So first of all that ignores the critical race theory is it is an activist. Ideology. Openly critical race theory says what it is the same thing is true with regard to teaching LGBTQ plus ideology in schools. It is an activist ideology directed at changing traditional morazan standards. That's what it is. People don't make any bones about this. Second of all when we say that education is designed to help turn students into well informed and discerning citizens, the word citizen doesn't just mean people. Citizens has an actual definition. The Aristotelian definition of a good citizen is a person who uphold the constitution of his particular policy, meaning political Body. If you teach your kids to be bad citizens in the Aristotelian sense, bucking against all of the systems, bucking against all of the traditions and values of the systems. You're not teaching. You're gonna be a good citizen. You're teaching to be a bad citizen and you end up as a country with no future. So again, I think that most Americans are beginning to wake up to this and the left is beginning to realize it and they're running a little bit scared because of it. And so you're suddenly seeing this upswell of articles from The New York Times, It really is amazing, in which they are openly defending the indoctrination of students into radical creeds. There's an article in The New York Times. Titled A Private school Sex Educator, defends her method after nine years adult Why was Justine a infant suddenly being pilloried by parents? The articles by Valeria Safronnikova QUOTE. Sex Education is a sensitive subject during nine years at the prestigious Dalton School on the Upper East Side of Manhattan, seven of which she spends as the director of health and wellness, Justine and Bond seems to be handling it with success. She developed curriculums for students from kindergarten through 12th Grade, hired three other health educators and organized documentary viewings, discussions and workshops for parents. She was also a regular speaker and educational forums like the National Association of Independent Schools, People of Color Conference and offered workshops and presentations and other New York City schools. One of these was Columbia grammar and prep school on the Upper West Side, which in May invited her to teach to zoom sessions. I'm pornography, literacy and consent to its juniors and seniors..

"Be one of the most fascinating human beings to ever live ever had. Uh, And these these facts that have come out based on a new interview that he did on a podcast or I'm sorry with Indiewire. The man is completely unreachable. Bill Murray currently has no agent. No cell phone, no social media, and the only way anybody can reach him is by a 1 800 number that he is set up for people to leave messages that he may or may never may or may not ever even check. I've heard this for decades, and I think it is one of the coolest things in Hollywood. So for a while, the joke was he had a house phone like that was. The joke is that he didn't have a cell phone. He didn't have social media, but he had a house phone. So in this interview with Indiewire, he said, I had a house phone and it would just ring and ring and ring. So finally, So, finally, he says, I ripped it out of I ripped it out of the wall. And normally, people who would call and call repeatedly it would lead to him not wanting anything to do with him because he just his thought was if you're calling and I'm not answering. Why are you still calling And why are you letting it ring? Good point. So to think you can be at the level of a Bill Murray and just say 110% effort Nobody can get in touch with me, Boss.

I never disliked anything. He's really even. I think maybe what. He's a part of kind of precedes him. Now right so it's kinda gotta take the good with the bad basically you have to.

"Thehe, Lithia Group and author of True Or False, A CIA analyst guide to spotting Fake news. I talked with her to understand more about who the foreign threats are. Today. The National security community has a responsibility to lay out publicly. All the threats is they see them, And so it's absolutely accurate to say that It's not just Russia out there. Using disinformation is a tool in a tactic to advance, you know, a particular foreign policy goal. China, Iran, Saudi countries like that are increasingly seeing The effectiveness of using disinformation and because they themselves have you know a domestic capabilities where they use propaganda, Teo, you know, control their own populations and limit freedom's at home. They do already sort of have that capability that they confront turn to advance their their foreign objectives as well. So it's accurate to say that you know these other countries are involved as well. But they're going about it in very different ways, and they also have very different levels of capability. Russia is on the more sophisticated end of the foreign actors that are out there trying to use disinformation. They learned a lot from 2016 about how to cover their tracks better. They've shifted some of their tactics and refined their their capabilities to be effective. And then you have you know a country like China, for example. Which uses very overt means, Teo, you know, spread false information and conspiracy theories about very particular areas of concern for them. So we see them, you know, use things like social media influencers, their own government run media, etcetera, very overtly to push back and to spread false information about the krone virus pandemic, for example, or to push back on what they see is damaging rhetoric from the White House. On things like the trade, the trade issues tic tac, etcetera. So there's there's a foreign government piece. And then there's also these foreign commercial entities as well that have popped up, particularly in recent years. INE, for example, Southeast Asia Eastern Europe that call themselves things like PR firms or digital marketing firms. They sell things like troll farms that you can hire to wage you know, online influence campaigns, So we know disinformation is being used by both foreign and domestic networks to sow distrust. Course looming over all of this is the fact that we're about two months away from presidential election an election that we might not know the results of on election night in which President Donald Trump has without evidence. Continually suggested could be rigged. One thing about all of this that concerns me is what will fill the vacuum who will be out there debunking false claims. Once election night is over. We don't have the resources at this point. We simply don't. We've learned a lot in the United States in the last couple of years, But we haven't entirely put all of the resources in place in terms ofthe both within the social media companies at the federal government level. Ah, a lot of a lot of what is happening is that these two sort of sides of things are differing or Relying on the media, nonprofits, academic institutions, disinformation researchers to do a lot of the combating investigation and messaging themselves, which is just it's it's not a fair position to put these people into first of all, because they're not usually given the resource is as well to do that kind of role. They're doing it for free. In most cases, and it's just not sustainable with the amount of content that were we experience on a daily basis and will see throughout the election and afterwards. So you know, I think we're going to see exactly the kinds of things that you mentioned pictures going viral. They're taken out of context, or, you know, were snapped by a really actual person. At the moment, they claim, Teo, you know, be taking the picture, but it's completely you know, they're they're making conclusions that aren't accurate. They're making linkages and that sort of thing. Yeah, it's it is going to be a challenge for anybody. But you're right. The idea that either not profits or even the Serve traditional mainstream media. Can they do enough? Do you think to kind of prepare Americans for this moment? Or do you think that because their influence is just not as powerful as it, Walt Wass. That it's going to reach some people, but that the social media platforms reach many more. I mean, it's really going to take a whole of community effort, and I haven't seen that coming together yet where you know, mainstream. Media outlets are partnering with tech platforms and partnering with government civil society, etcetera to put out consistent messaging. About some of the things that we outline, So you know, we're not going to necessarily know the election results in maybe any of the elections that you have voted in right in any of the races that you voted in right on Election day. This is going to take some time. Here's how the process works. Here is how mail in voting works. Here's how absent he works. This is legitimate. This is you know, but it's a process to help educate people that then when they see the claims of No tampering, Or will my candidate one on election day. But now you're saying they didn't win because of what I've been told, is a rigged process. You know, we're just in such dangerous territory when we're not doing that sort of consistent messaging to help educate people ahead of time so that they notice to spot these things or to question the kinds of narratives. They will absolutely be seeing on election day and afterwards and that's your 0.2 rights and that it can't just be Facebook alone. And it can't just be the media alone or a group like yours, saying these things there needs to be a coordinated effort, but that seems unlikely. Would this be different if there were different leadership at the White House? Or is it even more complicated than that? I do think it would be different if it hasn't been a priority for this administration for various reasons, and without some sort of overarching coordinating mechanism, bringing all of the relevant parties together. Coming up with a strategy and then implementing that strategy many, many months in advance of an event like this, it's going to turn out exactly as it has, which is multiple different groups trying to do multiple different things and hoping that it has some positive effect. A TTE the end of the day, you know, in the disinformation community, there's a lot of coordination that takes place, but it is very You know, it is very fractured. At times, it could end up being very niche where you know we sort of scurry off and go work on our relevant piece..
