Brian Windhorst ‘Highly Doubts’ Ben Simmons and 76ers Can Repair Their Relationship
"Let's get to the latest surrounding ben simmons and the sixers keep pompeii the philadelphia inquirer reports that people in simmons's camp are not inclined to help the sixers find a trade partner for him so given the public criticism from doc rivers after the playoffs and how his name was in the james harden trade talks last season march sign of the times reports that the cavs are one team. That's interested in him so brian is there a chance for simmons to repair his relationship in philly. And if not where do you think he could end up. I've been around too long to say that. There's never a chance of anything. But i would highly doubt it One of the messages. That ben has sent back towards philly. Is that. It's not his job to fix his trade value. It's his job to correct. This trade value raises trade value. That is not something that is on the menu for him and so with that out there. I don't think he's interested in coming in and trying to change the situation and one thing that i think is interesting is that his contract is structured in a way that he's going to get half of his money by october first sixteen and a half million of thirty three million come before he has to worry about getting find a single dime for a forty one of his game. So he's going to have a war chest that he can. Just sit this out. Now i agree the cavaliers and other teams that are really interested in trading for a guy with four years. Left on their contract would be interested. That's also why. You've heard a mike minnesota and even potentially a team like san antonio these are organizations that typically don't do well in free agency and so the idea of getting a star player under four year contract is very attractive but dens value is so low right now and the expectations of daryl morey on a trailer so high we just are not neutral zone for any If any team at this
Warriors Reject Sixers’ Steep Asking Price for Ben Simmons
"Sixers are asking the Warriors per keep pumping, who covers the sixties for The Philadelphia Inquirer for Andrew Wiggins, James Wiseman, the seventh pick in tonight's draft, the 14th pick in tonight's draft. And to future first round picks. So four first round picks. Wiggins and Wiseman. Basically That's six first round picks if you think about it. 7 14 to future. Wiggins was an early first round pick, and James Wiseman was just the second pick in the draft. So if you want to say, because Wiggins played in the league for a little bit hit, and he's kind of been underwhelming. Wise, but at least they're still has that potential. Even after his first season, it's basically Wiggins And five first round picks for Ben Simmons. If I'm the Golden State warriors. I'm glad they said no. And I don't think that price is going to be met for Ben Simmons.

Have we solved the black hole information paradox?
"Universe is full of interesting and amazing things and none more mysterious than black holes and try black holes are these weird corners of the universe where we think secrets lie. We suspect that solution to the age. Old conflict between general relativity and quantum mechanics might lie right at the heart of black holes but of course nobody can see inside them. So it's incredibly frustrating to think that the answers to some of our deepest questions exist but are hidden from us. Does that drive physicist bunkers to know that there are out there but maybe they're trapped in a place where they can never get out. That's essentially the project of physics right. The answers are out there. The universe does contain these answers. And if you can come up with the right experiment you can force the universe to reveal those truth. That's basically how we accumulated all the knowledge that we have but yet frustrating to think that there might be places in the universe that nobody could ever look where information could hide forever escaping from even our most clever efforts to reveal them. You make it sound. Like viz are like paparazzi of the universe. You're trying to catch the universe. He no sunbathing and its portrait. Something i used to think of us as more like murder mystery detectives but yeah paparazzi. More positive way because the universe is beautiful. It deserves our attention. Yeah i guess. They're surprised to being the universe. We're just here trying to enjoy the beauty of the universe. You know and get it signature once in a while so we can sell it on ebay to the national enquirer or times magazine. One of those to whoever will take is part of the freebritney movement. I don't think there's a free universe movement where they're like. Hey physicist leave the universe alone. Some of the mystery no.

Ready to shop with a "smart cart?"
"You pandemic has brought about a ton of tech innovation when it comes to shopping between ordering everything online in curbside pickup. The next phase of this might be the smart cart according to my colleagues at the cincinnati enquirer supermarket chain. Kroger is testing smart cards where shoppers pick their items place them in the car and leave without ever having to go to a checkout or register i this is how they work. The carts themselves use artificial intelligence to recognize what you put in the cart. So you can take a box of cereal. Draw pasta sauce a gallon of milk. Whatever it is the cart will recognize what you place inside. It also has scales built so if you're buying produce it will wait for you in the cart and then once you're done shopping you back up your items and then you make a payment directly from the car itself. This idea of checkout free. Grocery store isn't new. We've seen amazon experiment with this already. Last year. they opened in grocery store in seattle where users can download an amazon go app. They scan a barcode to enter the store. Then they scan what they're buying and once they're done they just walk out and received by email and it's all done within the app. The fact that kroger is testing smart cards is a pretty big deal. The cincinnati-based grocer operates several regional supermarket chains in thirty five states stores. That you may have heard of like fred. meyer harris teeter ralph's marianas and host of others. The company has nearly twenty eight hundred stores so the fact that they are testing this out is pretty significant. Once they get to a final place it's going to be at a lot of different locations so it looks like your grocery experience is going to get a lot more technologically advanced in the months and years to come

Activists On How To Sustain Movement Against Police Brutality
"Cove in 19 crisis has not just been a health crisis. It's been an economic crisis to and as economic crises arise, so it is unemployment and homelessness. In the years following the 2008 economic collapse, major cities saw a dramatic rise in the number of people experiencing homelessness. And now amid the Koven 19 pandemic, we're seeing a rising rate of addictions, according to the eviction lab in 17 cities that they tracked there have been more than 53,000 eviction since the pandemic began. Results, not just homeless men on the street, but Children living in shelters, families living in their cars and Wal Mart parking lots. People crowding into friends or relatives shared rooms this period of time since the Koven 19 pandemic hasn't just exacerbated the problem. It's also Given rise to a kind of grassroots activism against it. Earlier this year amid the national uprisings for racial justice against police brutality, anti homelessness activists have been playing an increasingly public role. In cities like Minneapolis in Philadelphia, activists have established homeless encampments and protected them from law enforcement sweeps that displaced the camps. I'm joined now by Will James, reporter with Can k X public radio in Washington and host of the Outsiders podcast about homelessness in Olympia. Great to have you here? Well, yeah. Hey, Matt, thanks and were also on the line with Anna or so a reporter with the Philadelphia Inquirer who has been reporting on a homeless encampment slash protest in center city, Philadelphia. Anna. Thanks for joining us. Hey, thanks for having me your welcome. So, guys, let's start with you. Will you've been following the homes this crisis throughout the West Coast? Can you just give us a picture to start of what This crisis looked like before the pandemic. It Yeah. So, you know, just take Washington State, for example. You know, we have an estimated 21,000 people who are homeless in Washington state. And on the West Coast. What kind of distinguishes the West Coast from the East Coast when it comes to homeless is thie proportion of people who are homeless who are living outside who are unsheltered who are living in tents in the woods and on the sides of highways? By some accounts, you know all the numbers and homelessness are a little bit shaky, very hard to get a solid number on them. But as many as two thirds of people who are unsheltered and homeless in the United States live in California, Oregon and Washington, so homelessness has been very visible crisis impossible to ignore in the West Coast, vast encampments of people living in city downtown's and in parks and before a coven 19 homelessness was the front and center issue. In so many West Coast cities. He was getting a lot of attention. There was a ton of advocacy it was, you know, in every City Council meeting every county council meeting now homelessness is one of many emergencies that states and cities and counties they're dealing with. And so We're seeing advocates fighting for attention for this issue in a way that that really hasn't been necessary in past years. How are they fighting for attention House out? What does that look like? It looks like kind of trying to use the media show up at City Council meetings and government meetings and just kind of reminding people in power that Even though there are so many crises that we're dealing with right now, this homelessness emergency hasn't gone away. In fact, much of the West Coast, many of the cities on the West Coast were in an official state of emergency around homelessness before this began, and so cove in 19 is actually you know, a state of emergency on top of a state of emergency in many of these cities. Well, Ana tell us what's going on in Philly. There have been a couple of homeless encampments around for months. But they apparently double is protest movements. Right? Can you explain a bit about what these look like? And what they're like? Yeah, you know, for Philadelphia. It's sort of a new and unique structure. We have had encampments of homeless folks for several years now that I have grown in size and in prominence, and the city has, you know, swept them cleared them out, and then people scatter and eventually re gather somewhere else. Now in the past couple of years, they've really been concentrated in the city's Kensington neighborhood. Which is a couple of miles away from center city, and from where you know, media and politicians sort of do their everyday work. Now the largest encampment of homeless folks, which was organized in June by affordable housing advocates, is on the Benjamin Franklin Parkway, which is a very prominent space sort of in the middle of the city. It's where the famous art museum is located. It's surrounded by luxury condos. And it's really in a place that is impossible to ignore. And so we now have this interesting confluence of the racial justice movement mixed with the movement for affordable housing for people living in homelessness. And so it's presenting the city with this really new and interesting challenge because they just can't handle This encampment like they have others in the past. Are they making a connection between racial justice, the black lives matter, Movements and homeless activism. Are they making a connection there? Very much so thie Encampment was established two weeks into You know the racial justice protests here in Philadelphia, and it was immediately tied to black lives matter. The activists connect the criminal justice system and policing systems. With poverty and homelessness. There are a lot of black men and women who are living in this homeless encampment who have been in and out of the sister criminal justice system almost all of their lives and The organizers of this encampment are saying, Look, this is all connected. If we reform our policing systems to stop just proportionately impacting black people in Philadelphia, we can make a you know a real change in what poverty and homelessness looks like in this city if we can get people into housing, rather than putting them in temporary shelters or sending them back out onto the streets where, whereas the activists say Homelessness could be criminalized in a variety of ways. Whether that's folks being charged for substance used public drunk in this, the like these systems really are sort of inextricably linked. And how is the city handling this? Are they allowing this homeless encampment to just stay in the center of town? I understand is also a a second one near the Philadelphia Housing Authority's office. I imagine these folks can't stay living there and intense and whatnot for then, you know, indefinitely. Yeah. You know, it's been interesting. The city has given several eviction notices A TTE this point for both encampments. You're right. There is a smaller encampment in north Philadelphia outside. The Housing Authority, which runs public housing in the city. But so far the people living there, and the activists running these encampments have resisted thes eviction notices in a variety of ways. A couple months ago, there was a federal lawsuit filed on behalf of the encampment. Residents, claiming their first Amendment right to protest was was being violated. And several weeks ago, the city put out a final eviction notice and Went, outreach workers and police showed up early one morning. At seven o'clock. There were dozens of activists who had gathered to defend the camps with sticks, boogie boards, makeshift shields, and it just was very clear that That a sweep of the encampment was going to be really ugly on DH. There was a ton of media there Tio to capture what occur so outreach workers and police sort of stepped back and No eviction has taken place yet. You know the city and the activists are are still sort of negotiating. Will

"inquirer" Discussed on Silver & Black Pride
"Is Tyler Dragon Reagan. Who covers the Bengals for the Cincinnati Inquirer? Okay well you gotta be feeling pretty good right now raider nation. It seems like things are really starting to fall into place for the raiders in their quest to make the playoffs last Sunday. You had the chiefs lose the bills lose and the colts lose So that was a very good Sunday. Day for the raiders and then last night on Thursday night football the steelers also went down to the browns. So what does this all mean as it stands right now at at this moment the raiders are the sixth seed in the AFC playoff picture. So that's where we're going to begin tonight's episode and and we're GonNa taking a look at the landscape of the AFC playoff picture right now and take a close look at some of the teams that the raiders are competing with and some of the possible scenarios. So first let's start with within the division. The chiefs have faltered lately and have left the door. Open for the raiders to still have a shot to compete to win the division title. That's something that maybe a couple of weeks ago didn't seem like it was a possibility. Maybe before mahomes got hurt that really change some change things at five and four. The raiders are only one game back in the in the wind callum of the chiefs looking at the remaining schedule for the chiefs. It's not an easy schedule for them. They've got a they've got a tough Next couple of weeks here. They have the chargers this week. Then they're on their bye week fouled by a head to head matchup with the raiders in week thirteen. That game is in Kansas City. Then they go on the road due to New England which is one of the most difficult places to play in the league rounding out their season they finished with Denver at Chicago in the chargers injures again so the division certainly not out of question and like I was saying that week. Thirteen game that head to head matchup in Arrowhead could be huge. There is a very good possibility. There's a very good chance that both teams will. We'll go into that game at seven four tied for first place battling for sole possession of first place so I mean wow that's that's all I can can say that. That would be a huge huge game for the raiders. Let's take a look now at some possible. Wildcard Scenarios House. There's four to five teams that You know I want you to kind of keep an eye on here. The next Six weeks of the season and those teams are the bills who currently Lee hold the five c with the six and three record the colts at five and four steelers five and five Tennessee five and five and then the Jaguars who are foreign five live so this is actually a really good position. That the raiders. Find themselves in right. Now if you take a look at the Playoff standings and the way it kind of looks it's now they're in a very very favorable position In the reason why is that they hold the tiebreaker over the colts from the wind that they had over them earlier in the season and secondly they still have games remaining with the titans and the Jaguars. So really. If you think about it. The raiders readers. They control their own destiny and That's really what you want You don't WanNa have to rely on getting a bunch of help from other teams. That's just it's never ever An ideal situation really. It's it's it's as good as it could be right now For Raider Fan. Now I do you WANNA spend a few minutes here just kind of Looking at looking ahead to Those four to five teams that I mentioned. I WANNA take a look at their schedules and comment on them so we'll start with the Let's start with the colts else. Okay they're currently the seventh seeds. I'm just GonNa Kinda Goin' order. As a as they're seated the colts have games remaining with the Jaguars. Texans listens the titans. The box the Saints Panthers and they finish off with the JAGS. That is not going to be easy. Good luck with that colts not an easy role that road all remaining for the colts Jacoby is back this week from that. Knee injury again. I'm not as concerned with the colts. Be just because of that tiebreaker. Scenario the steelers their schedule looks much more manageable manageable With games against the bengals the browns again the cardinals the bills jets and Ravens and their ear. Now keep keep in mind. They will be without their starting center for the next three games due to that suspension From that fight MARQUEES Pouncey let's see He's GonNa be out the next three games. And you know he he's. He's a very good offense alignment for them And they're already there. Backup quarterback Mason Rudolph so and he looked atrocious atrocious on Thursday night football Tennessee. Who beat the chiefs last week will face? The Jaguars The the colts there at the raiders the following week Texans Saints and the Texans again. That's tough stretch there. Those last four games they will not be easy for the titans The Jaguars who will beginning back. Nick foles this week. Face the Colts Titans Bucks chargers raiders. Fokin's Colt so what you're what you're hearing here. Is that you you know if you follow their closely the AFC South Division. We'll we'll pretty much sort itself out. They got a lot of head to head games. The jags titans colts have have a few head to head games with each each other. So they're going to be beaten up on each other and and you know they're gonNa see if someone can Can Catch the raiders. And you know just for the heck of it I do want to take a look. The bills remaining schedule Kind of a mixed bag here for the bills. They have three easy ones left with the dolphins. The broncos the jets that's too too difficult games with with the Ravens and the Patriots and and then one kind of so so match up. You never know what you're going to get with the steelers so so again. What does this all mean you know? I could see the raiders going highs the four seat now winning division. It's possibility I mean it sounds crazy. I know but they could and I could also see them squeaking into the playoffs as a wildcard cart team. You know in in the five seed or the six seed kind depending on what what happens with buffalo so bottom line. Here is the raiders. They have it all right there for the taking.

"A hit piece in the National Enquirer. It's more politically powerful than the internet or the Washington Post, but the prognosis for the national inquirer may be much worse than it ever was for Hillary Clinton. Bloomberg news reports parent company AM I as a negative net worth at the moment. And is now more than one billion dollars in debt. And it is now taken on the richest man in the world. If you Google the phrase magic kingdom, a number of listings appear at the top of the page for Disney World, the magic kingdom was the original aim for the original Disneyland theme park in California, but was later assigned to just one of the parks that make up Walt Disney World resort in Florida this knee trademarked the phrase magic kingdom in the mid nineteen seventies. But that did not stop the publishers of the National Enquirer which used the phrase again. And again inside a special magazine put out last year displayed in glossy color, wherever the inquirer was sold. AM? I apparently decided not to use magic kingdom on the cover opting for the new kingdom. Instead, it was entirely a public relations piece nearly one hundred page tourism brochure like something you'd find on the desk in a hotel room and AM I knew knew it. So well, it even asked the US Justice department, if it should register as a foreign agent in putting out that shiny. A booklet the magazine hailed Mohammed bin Salman as the most influential Arab leader handsome and smiling at a perfect thirty two years old meet the next king, it declared sub headlines include that are closest Middle East ally is destroying terrorism and how the prince is improving the lives of his people. This is the same prince believed to have ordered the murder of a US resident and journalist Jamal kashogi of the Washington Post. We don't know how many copies of the new kingdom were actually sold with a cover price at fourteen bucks. But we know WalMart took shipments. Totalling two hundred thousand copies the ones that didn't sell presumably most of them were shipped back to AM is distributor. So why go through all that? What was that all about? Why was the publisher of shady tabloid putting on a glossy ninety seven page full color magazine, praising Saudi Arabia and its crown prince. By several accounts, inquirer publisher, David pecker has wanted to buy time magazine for years. The New York Times source for the stories of the Petra was hoping some of that sweet Saudi money would do the trick. And that he might start selling publications as the flyer calls it the magic kingdom in two thousand thirteen Trump tweeted that pecker would be quote, a brilliant choice as CEO of time. Adding nobody could bring it back like, David. That was just three years after AM is last bankruptcy. The New York Times reported last March that pecker was attending events with a Saudi emissary as that Saudi official was touring the United States in July of two thousand seventeen that emissary and David pecker were at the White House chatting with Donald Trump and getting their pictures taken with Jared. Kushner, fun fact AM I is also the publisher of men's journal flex and muscle, and fitness and it owns and operates the Mr. Olympia contest, but the Saudis seemed far more interested in AM is National Enquirer, and that's not the only media outlet in which the Saudis of shown interest. The Wall Street Journal reports that the Saudi Crown prince Mohammad bin Salman was joined on a yacht in the Red Sea in August by the executive chairman of vice media. The paper reports that any partnership between the Saudis and vice is unlikely, but that the prince was interested in generating a positive image, especially with younger news consumers that positive image is getting harder for the prince to maintain..

So people realize it, so he is a billionaire times one hundred and recently his marriage fell apart. Is that a nice way to put it when it turned out that he was having an affair with a L A broadcaster. And I remember the story couple of weeks ago was how this is going to be the richest divorce settlement this that and the other. Well, it turns out that even after all that the National Enquirer tabloid newspaper magazine, National Enquirer was trying to extort him was trying to get not money, but preferable. Treatment in return for not publishing damaging photos. Jeff Bezos said the National Enquirer threatened to publish suggestive photos of him unless he publicly affirmed the tabloids exposure of his affair was not motivated by politics basis owns the Washington Post. Its coverage of the White House has angered President Trump a longtime associate of the Enquirer's David pecker federal prosecutors here in New York, the company immunity as part of the investigation into Trump's former attorney, Michael Cullen, but Basil's letter could prompt them to review whether it violated an agreement to commit no crimes whatsoever. I just see the National Enquirer as one of the most sleazy of sleazy tad tabloid. Actually, I wonder if they've they've actually like with your grading on a curve. Now, there's a lot worse these days. Yeah. I don't I still go from like, the when I was, you know, growing up John in the National Enquirer, and I think it's so fitting that the last name Packer. So we go on with the story. And we find out that basis called the bluff basis as you. Going to blackmail me. You're not going to extort me. I'm going to come out. And I'm going to tell everybody exactly what they have. And what they threatened to do to me. Now. Nobody else in America is as rich as Jeff Bezos. No one. But I know that there are a lot of people listening right now. That had inappropriate pictures sure of themselves out there of other individuals, and if somebody wanted to blackmail, you or extort money from you. Trade for not having these embarrassing shameful photos released. Be in the same position as Jeff Bezos to call that bluff is his money issue. You could also argue because he's so much more popular as a CEO. Does he have more to lose by these no money? No. No, no. I think the money is important here because the two most stupid business decisions that have been made over the last twelve months the second. Most stupid business decision was Jeff basis having these photos taken the first most stupid business decision was am I going after the richest man in America because he's going to destroy them? Like, am I the nationalincome fire from choir is dead? They may not know it yet. But they're dead. You've just taken the richest man in America's focus off of books. Whatever it was the Washington Post and has set his eyes are now set on you there double he's hired like investigative investigator. He's got some money. Does matter. I wish he could could've acquiesced for the for the sake of his business. Instead, he I think he sitting a playbook. I think he's here's the thing. If these pictures come out. Yeah. And they would have come out in the inquirer. Right and everybody would have giggled and go look with Anthony Weiner, pardon the pun. But these other ones that have come out with a pictures of celebrities politicians, whatever in compromising positions, and we all gig. Let them we point intimate to basing this that and the other Jeff visas published the Email that the the extortion Email with graphic descriptions of what they had pictures up.

"Eight eight Morongo eight eight eight Morongo. All right now. Jeff Bezos is getting divorced, and it's probably a low. We don't know specifically, but probably because of his extramarital affair with Lauren Sanchez, former host of the FOX show. So you think you can dance? And we know that they had a steaming affair because a National Enquirer released techs and all kinds of I don't think it released pictures yet. But certainly texts of the two steam really texting each other. For example. I'm crazy about you. He wrote all of you. And so I got pretty personal for sure. And this is the National Enquirer that is owned by a very pro Trump. Businessman, David pecker. And he is he's pro-trump beezus owns the Washington Post that of course, has been going after Donald Trump. So you can see the connection of Trump's matter. Fact pecker was I think was he. Convicted or at least he was accused of actually paying the money to stormy Daniels act Trump's insistence or Michael Collins. So the money didn't trace directly, so it's it's all convoluted. But the point here is that they released these tax and then B's those came back and attack them for a political attack and went crazy. And went I got more and more information. I mean, he's fighting with them, then they come back and say we have a we have photos. That explicit ones of the two of you. But I'll tell you what we won't release them. If you just send out a text saying that you agree that we didn't go after you for political purposes. So it's it's extortion, but fairly mild, extortion, they're asking for money. They just want him to say, hey, justed bit that this was not for political purposes. Well, you don't threaten Jeff Bezos under any circumstances. So you know, what he did he released the photos? And he's suing them for extortion. And he found out who and how they got all this information. He hired a team of investigators headed by his chief of security, and they I mean, the photos are and some of them they got from him. Well, in his private server, or somehow, they got through it, they hacked whatever device that he had him on a server, but also they had 'paparazzi photos tracking the couple across five states forty thousand miles boarding private jets writing and limousine going to five star hotel hideaways as a describe it. And also described their arriving together at their beachfront love nest in Santa Monica. I would like to know where the I've been to Santa Monica bunch of times. I don't know where a beach front. Love nest is now American media has issued a statement. He's are the people that own the wire now Justice morning, they say American media believes fervently that it acted lawfully in the reporting of the story of Mr. basis. Listen to this part, though further at the time of the recent allegations made by Mr. basis, it was in good faith negotiations to resolve all matters with him. Nonetheless in the light of the nature of the allegations published by mister big those the company board has convened and determined that it should properly and thoroughly investigate the claims upon completion of the investigation. The board will take whatever appropriate action is necessary. Don't you feel like he scared them? Oh, he, and I don't it doesn't matter. I think he's going to go balls of the wall. Anyway, he has the memo. An attorney that is representing them is the one that extorted him or at least through his attorney and said outright, or I think through a security guy said outright, we will not publish your photos. If you said, if you agree to publish on your blog that you don't think that we did this for political purposes if that's not extortion? I don't know what is. So the takeaway here don't get into it with Jeff Bezos. Although you have to admit that had he had they just released this stuff. Is first amendment, although breaking in hacking into private servers that sort of thing. I think there's an issue there. And I think he's arguing there's criminality here. So and just don't take naked cell fees are. Yeah. That's the other thing. What are you doing sending naked selfish? Come on Marjorie. Does all the time. Okay. I'm sorry. I certainly won't for a whole bunch of reasons. I I don't wanna be extorted. Now, let's just let's just move on. Okay.

I'm Ari Shapiro, and Mary Louise Kelley Amazon founder Jeff Bezos is accusing the National Enquirer of extortion and blackmail in an extraordinary online post tonight visas accuses the Enquirer of threatening to publish intimate photos of him unless he basis calls off an investigation into how the Enquirer got hold of his private text messages with a woman with whom he was having an affair. The inquirer is part of American media INCE media group run by a close friend of President Trump who has been caught up in Russia investigation, lots of layers to this. So let's bring in reporter, Lucas Alpert of the Wall Street Journal to help sort through at high Lucas, how are you? All right. Thank you. I want to give people listening warning that details you're about to hear may be graphic. But let's start with this post that Jeff visas has just put up on medium in which he describes how the Enquirer approached. And threatened him. What does he say happened? Well, so just kinda step back a bit earlier this week, the Washington Post ran a story kind of investigating how the National Enquirer kind of got these tax messages and followed Jeff basis and his alleged paramour around the Washington Post, which is owned by visuals another wrinkle, right? That's right. And so that's story. Allege a lot of things, you know, whether there was a political motivation as you mentioned, the inquirer and its owner is are close to or, you know, have defended Donald Trump and has written rather Kobe in in his favor. So in kind of run up to this. It looks like according to the post phases was put up today that the the inquirer threatened if you don't, you know, in light of this article, you're about to publish in your paper. You know, we have these pictures of you, I gather they were text messages that may be it's on that included nude or partially nude sell fees. You know stuff that's quite embarrassing so basis came forward. So I'm going to publish this on my own, and, you know, get out ahead of this. They're trying to extort me. And you know, I'm not gonna stand for it. Yeah. I mean, the photos it's it sounds like according to the messages that are published. Here are are very graphic below the belt celsius and selfish and a bathroom were basis is wearing a towel and various things are visible also selfish of the woman with whom he was having an affair, right. And then later, they put a post up from a corporate counsel, a lawyer for American media saying, you know, we will. Agree to not run these pictures, if you agree to stop making our come out publicly and say, we have no evidence that this was a politically motivated story. Our investigation was on toward in any way. So a quid pro quo there and the bazars response, he as you noted he said, obviously, I don't want personal photos to be published, but I'm not gonna participate in this his words well-known practice of blackmail, political favors political attacks on corruption. And he ends. His response saying I prefer to stand up roll this log over and see what crawls out. It's an interesting thing. If you go back to the original story that the acquire ran last month about the the affair before it ran us came out with a statement to sort of preemptive announcing he and his wife would be getting divorced. So one has to wonder if a story like this. You know, he comes out ahead of perhaps, they were planning to publish these pictures. I don't know if that's the case. But you know, if he was trying to preempt a move by them by getting out ahead of it. And not to be maybe where we are. What is the Enquirer saying have they confirmed that these they confirm these messages were sent to basis or or his attorney so far they have not commented on any of their representatives award a jacket as who are, you know, his name show up in these documents. None of them have returned calls. You know, they are as part of their connection through Trump's lawyer Michael Cohen who pleaded guilty last year, campaign finance fraud. They admitted to their role in covering up. You know, some store negative stories about Donald Trump and fairs that he had they bought stories. They didn't run them this catching kill practice. They they've made an agreement with prosecutors set granted them immunity. So the question now, I want one has to wonder is does this allegation. If this is true, if this is really extortion blackmail does that run afoul agreement that they're already party to? So you're saying we have not yet had a statement tonight from the Enquirer or the parent company, but based on what we know about their business practices in past. This would be consistent. They have been known. They they're they're very they're very hard nose. And they're dealing say do use things as leverage they have in the past. You know, kind of. Dangled things over people will run this unless you do something that's sort of. I mean, the line of the catch and kill business that they've been that they've admitted to doing in the past Lucas Alpert media reporter at the Wall Street Journal. Thanks very much.

"So I think as your last guest showed there's been a sputtering defense by the Trump team about this. I Trump said, you know, I had nothing to do with those payments that was proven false. Then a second defense was why didn't have the criminal intent to do. So. But now Michael Cohen and today have you been talking about the National Enquirer said, no, this was for the purpose of influence the election. So now we've gone to this third. This get out of jail free card argument that because the Trump is saying I'm the president therefore under the constitution. I can't be indicted. And I think the first thing to say about that is, you know, it's quite remarkable that you have Donald Trump guy who hasn't really cared one whit about the constitution. All of a sudden magically discovering, this grand document and finding the Senate. I mean, it's not like this is like, you know, William Rehnquist or Robert Jackson, dad, Jack Danforth or something finding this. This is. Self interested suspicious claim, and so I agree congressman Schiff is right to say, you know, the Justice department should really look at this because it's generic guidance. It's not a precedent or anything just some generic guidance saying sitting presidents, and general shouldn't be indicted. But I don't think that necessarily applies to this situation. One of these guidelines exist in the first place is it. I mean, it does make it seem like the president somehow above the law like he's got, you know, get out of jail free card. Right. So I think both of these opinions nine hundred seventy three and two thousand take care to say, no, that's not what's going on. Probably. Our most cardinal legal principle is no person about the law. So what they say is there should be some temporary immunity while the person is president. But I think it's notable that those two problems for Trump one is that that's generic about crimes committed while in office this the crimes here, the allegations, these very serious campaign finance.

The question was to some of the Enquirer stash of stories include more dirt on Donald Trump. This report of the time certainly suggest so Maggie Haberman shares about bylines. He joins us in a moment. This is the money quote. He and his lawyer at the time, Michael deco and devised a plan to buy up all the dirt on Mr. Trump at the National Enquirer and its parent company had collected on him dating back to the nineteen eighty s according to several of Mr. Trump's associates. This third, according to the times includes older stories and notes about Trump's marital woes, lawsuits tips about alleged affairs and golf. The times also reported the purchase plan was never finalized. So now we know there could be a whole lot more about his private life that the president wants to conceal, but keeping them honest, wait a minute, haven't hit his surrogates been saying there's absolutely nothing to even conceal no truth to any of this. Why? Yes. Yes, they have. The president has addressed these directly and made very well clear that none of these allegations are true about the payment of not that I'm aware of.

"Coen tape which says that there are more instances that they wanna buy an own themselves and has always struck me as a bizarre way to deal with this because what it does is it identifies for certain that they were doing this for right Trump, whereas otherwise they might have this journalistic nonsense covering it up, but they don't have that. So one of the things I want to talk about his on the campaign trail, President Trump. He talked about a lot of things. One of them, he pushed the conspiracy theory about tech cruises, dad being involved in in the political assassination of John F Kennedy. To what extent do you think Donald Trump had any influence or control over the National Enquirer? Not. Direct control, but how much do you think there was some kind of dance there between the National Enquirer and the Trump campaign? No one has control over the car, but David pecker. Right. So anything they did was with his knowledge with his permission and with a lot of this help. So during the campaign glue Lewis covers that you showed you have to remember the inquirer is really the father of fake news. There's no rule that says, what you put on that cover has to be true or what you put inside yet, the value of that cover is immeasurable. In the matter what goes on, if you see that cover your make your, that's making recognition your brain, and whether you believe that image or not, it's affecting how people think do you think David Packer being honest. Now, do you think he's being truthful or he will be truthful. David peck will be as truthful as it needs to be to be able to survive this, which is. No way to quantify near. Let me ask you really quickly. Would you trust a tabloid during a presidential campaign. What I trust at tabloid now I wouldn't, but I would note the National Enquirer is in in in grocery stores across the country. Millions of people saw those covers the fact that they kind of either they made up excuses about Hillary's health and lied about Hillary's health that became a major issue in the campaign that Trump attacked over and over and over again. And I think honestly, the national choir had millions of dollars in essentially free media attacks on Hillary Clinton. And I think what we're going to find out is how what level of coordination there was between David pecker and Donald Trump himself. I do not think Muller would bring in and media person unless this went to beyond Michael Cohen. There's also a tragic sadness and all this sort of president who is constantly used the term fake news in dealing with mainstream national media relied on fake news like the National Enquirer Stu Zaka near at hand in John flannel.

"Your thoughts learning about the depth of the relationship between President Trump and the National Enquirer and what he tried to. Do well during the campaign. It really did seem like the National Enquirer operated as a media arm of the Trump campaign. Obviously, they had cover story after a cover story after cover story of attacking Hillary and really vicious terms and they had ridiculous positive puff pieces about Donald Trump. What I find really shocking about these revelations is just think of how much the National Enquirer hurt their own per business sales in the moment by quashing the McDougal story. And now we coming to find out that there's a whole file there. I mean, it really does seem pretty corrupt than that. They sat on this stuff during the campaign in order to really protect Donald Trump. And I think that's interesting that this David pecker is in snared in the investigation with Muller because I think it looks corrupt in many different ways. We were actually running some of these headlines some of the covers from the National Enquirer. These are some of the real National Enquirer headlines, quote Clinton, blackmailed FBI Clinton's violent rages and liver damage from booze and Clinton's hit-men paid hush money to hookers. How did Clinton combat all of these is I think like a really interesting question, but John, I want to get your thoughts about, are we expected to see any more charges arising from this? I mean somebody like David Packer being granted immunity for micro in exchange for his cooperation on Michael Cohen seems somebody as influential perhaps as powerful as David Packer would be given immunity for something bigger than Michael Cohen. No, I think so. Also you can't. You can't mix the word journalism with what the Enquirer does when in the case of Hillary and you didn't have this cover up, they had her adopting an alien, you know, and they put a picture of the on the cover. With pillory Clinton. I mean, what kind of journalistic standards do you have plainly what they had was it was an arm of the campaign and more recently and for the rest of his life. That was, it would help him have a rosier image and the possible offenses, if there were additional women as of Nadi suggested he said there were three more if they were involved in this campaign context, then there might be additional campaign violations, but there's also the question about how the money gets from a to b to see to cover the catch and kill costs that they have, which they mislead someone to think they're going to be on the cover or in the magazine, and then they kill the story and then the purse person doesn't come forward. And what Bank accounts do they use and so forth? I think that they give him unity to somebody like Mr. pecker because they figure that it's worth that trade to get at the more significant targets and to rip out this kind of misconduct, then it campaign and perhaps Bank fraud and other things that we don't know about. But we have reason to be concerned about into detest as an investigative hypothetical because that's exactly what happened in Cohen and the.

"All right, Kathy Kathy inaugurates. Have you guys. Thank you so much. All right. Next explosive, new report, Donald Trump, trying to buy back decades of dirt that the National Enquirer had on him. I'm gonna talk to a former high ranking executive at the national enquirers parent company or back thirty seconds. This was a magazine that, frankly, in many respects should be very respected. I've always said, why didn't the National Enquirer get the Pulitzer prize. All right. So the other top story tonight explo- explosive, new details. Excuse me about Donald Trump's connection to the National Enquirer and in a moment, I'm going to talk to a former high ranking executive inquires parent company, the New York Times reporting today that Donald Trump and Michael Cohen devised a plan to stop or to put a stop at least two salacious stories. The tabloid had on Trump, and it appears to be much more than the allegations about Trump's affair with Karen McDougal. The Trump piles reportedly include details on marriage problems affairs, lawsuits and allegations of cheating at golf, the details, bringing new context to the secret tapes leaked out by Michael Cullen, taking new. Listen to that infamous conversation about buying quote stuff. From the man who was leading the national inquirer at the time, David pecker. I need to open up a company for the transfer of all of that info regarding our friend, David him. So I'm going to do that right away. I've actually come up on me and I've spoken to Allen Weisselberg about how to set the whole thing up with funding that, yes, and it's all the stuffing all the stuff because you know, you never know where that company ever know what he's going to be hit by. Correct. So I'm I'm all over that. And I spoke to Alan about it. All right. Now, here on set is Tuesday conform or senior vice president for American media. That is the parent company of the National Enquirer Stu. Great to have you where they have them. Yeah, lots to talk about here. Let me start off by asking you from your position, your experience, to what extent can you confirm or deny that these files in fact existed and that the National Enquirer, whether it was David pecker, anyone else, maintain these files. On the president. Well, let's look at journalism as a whole. You guys MSNBC NBC news, maintains files on famous people in case something happens. You're ready to move on a moment's notice. The Enquirer, however, maintains files based on tips that they pay for. So when they're paying for tip, it's not just, you know, so. And so were a nice outfit today. There's some salacious insight into that buying that tip. So by collecting them and keeping them whether it's a real file or safe, whatever the image is, it keeps them relevant and also gives them leverage in working with those people. I think some people who would be watching this with a bit of a skeptic skeptical. I would say, why would a tabloid sit on salacious stories when it is in the business of selling salacious stories? Why would they have these files on somebody like President Trump as we outlined and then sit on them and do nothing with them? Well, it's about collecting favors more than anything when your immediate owner and you have a vast variety of publications AM I does. You interact with a lot of different people and information comes your way as you collect famous people. You want to keep them in your favor and what better way to do that, then killing stories that might embarrass them. How do you benefit from that in the long run, you keep something that you can use when you need their help, whether it's.
