This is the evening when sixty minutes is paying tribute to you later today. Thank you for joining me my pleasure. My pleasure how is sixty minutes changed over your three decades and and how has television changed over your career. How's everything changed. Every time i look at it now and every industry every walk of wipe this changed <hes> but mostly. I think that sixty minutes is probably changed the least of almost anything in the culture in terms of of <hes>. It's you know some people say it's still a little old fashioned but it's still doing good journalism and still basically siklie following the the blueprint that on hewitt set <hes> you know fifty years ago and still the most watched <hes> i mentioned you're obama interviews certainly in recent years. That's what you've been the best known for <hes>. What do you think it is about that kind of interviewing presidential interviewing that people should learn from our people should take away well. I that's a good the question when i first started doing the interviews with with obama in two thousand eight the there was sort of a canvass for doing presidential interviews that people in followed for years and years and years there was a you're of a certain politeness to it you. The president was treated with respect. <hes> tried not interrupted unless you absolutely had to and now it's kind of evolved to the place with this particular president where almost anything thing goes and when he does sit down with somebody besides this fox friends. Would you like to interview president trump. Have you tried <hes>. I have not tried. I took a pass on that. One and leslie and scott pelley both interviewed him. He's a very hard interview very hard interview because he just goes where he wants to go and takes you know even and it's particularly live but <hes> i think leslie did a pretty good job and exposed. I don't say exposing but letting him <hes> reveal himself in his personality the way he thinks i think lester holt did really a good job with them and other than that most people just can't get a handle on it. It's hard. I mean i i would know how to do it really well. I'd have i'd come up with an idea and strategies but i think you have to really be on your toes and beyond the presidential interviews what stories are most important to you are the kinds of stories that we need to have more of on television news. <hes> i think we ought to have more twelve minutes twelve and a half eh stories. I think that that's the biggest advantage that the show has <hes> and you know we shoot normally thirteen hours of pap- for thirteen minutes of <hes> of a a product and you have a lot to choose from and also if you're doing an interview live. You've got five minutes. Maybe <hes> and we've got an hour to sit down with somebody and we can go and find the best parts and right and go in every direction every direction. We're going to a couple more minutes for us steve. You're leaving at a time of turmoil for the last year. It's sixty minutes. There's been a lot of turmoil allegations against the former executive producer jeff fager. He's stepped down under pressure now this news. CBS news president we all remember the upheaval does that relate to wire leaving now. Not really i mean and i say that my wife thinks i'm crazy when i say that but <hes> it had very little to do with it. I made the decision really about a year ago that this was going to be my last season and i my my staff right about that time. All the dramas turned down and i said unless something really happens to change my mind. This is my last season and nothing happened to change. What's it been like inside. CBS news during this period <hes> well you know it's anytime you have organization that has leadership change wjr and as you pointed out we had at three different levels with <hes> corporate CBS with CBS news with sixty minutes. It creates a lot of uncertainty.

Former CBS CEO Les Moonves Denied $120 Million Severance Package
"This message comes from NPR sponsor Comcast. Comcast values your time. That's why you can schedule to our appointment windows, including nights and weekends that way. You can spend more time doing what you love. Comcast working to make things. Simple, easy, and awesome CBS is accusing les Moonves says of a quote willful failure to cooperate with an investigation into allegations of sexual misconduct. That failure atop the alleged misconduct. Is why CBS is denying him a severance payment of one hundred twenty million dollars? So what if the downfall of a legendary executive mean for his company NPR TV critic, Eric Dagens has covered moon vez and CBS for years. He's here either. Eric, hi, according to CBS, at least, and we should note. Moonves denies wrongdoing broadly. What what what is CBS say moon vested? Well, let's go back move. As was forced to step down back in September. At the New Yorker magazine published allegations from several women. Claiming he had sexually harassed or salted them. So the CBS board wound up hiring to law firms to look in the allegations against moon vase, also harassment or misconduct allegations that CBS news and CBS is wider corporate culture. Okay. So we mentioned an alleged willful failure to cooperate was Moonves supposed to cooperate with those law firms. Yes, they expected him to tell the truth when they asked him questions about his past conduct. Now, we haven't seen the reports that these law firms have created, but the New York Times reported on early drafts of the reports which said that investigators have evidence move as had lied to them and had tried to destroy text showing that he attempted to find acting work for one woman who'd made accusations against him in the board statement, they accused move as a breaching his contract and quote, willful material misfeasance now I had to look that word up, but it means performing an official duty in an improper or unlawful manner move as a turn. He has said in a statement that the conclusions are baseless that his client cooperated fully and that he vehemently denies assaulting. Although possession is nine tenths of the law. CBS has the one hundred twenty million dollars. They say they're keeping the one hundred twenty million dollars unless there's some other preceding we don't know about coming. But that leaves CBS trying to move on from losing its top executive in this in this particular way, how deep does the problem run at CBS. Well, you know, this was a company wants known as the Tiffany network. It bills itself as the most watched broadcast network in America, they have all these popular programs. But they also have this history of harassment allegations CBS this morning anchor Charlie rose was fired last year. After a Washington Post story revealed multiple allegations of sexual harassment. Jeff Fager, the executive producer of the top news magazine. Sixty minutes was let go in September. He had sent a threatening text to a CBS reporter who was working on a story about harassment allegations at CBS news. The New York Times reported last week on a nine. A nine point five million dollar settlement with actress Elisha deuce coupe who claim the she was harassed while she was working on the CBS drama bull. So there's a lot. And and as a critic, I pointed out CBS's lack of new show starring women for years. The question now is you know, is CBS really going to look harder at its history. Now or just hope everybody moves on after this crisis pass, you're putting on an interesting connection or parallel. We don't know how closely their connected, but we have allegations of private misconduct, and your noting something wrong with the public faces. CBS the opportunities given to women the representation of women CBS doing anything about these kinds of problems. Well, the board says it's created this new position called chief people officer to revamp its human resources departments. They say their diversity and inclusion efforts have been an adequate and they're going to beef them up. They're giving twenty million dollars to several different groups that are working to combat workplace harassment. But the CBS board is her from employees who said that Powell stars. And. Executives were not held accountable at the company and the question is whether CBS is going to hold them accountable now without big stories in the media to pressure them, Eric thanks so much for sheet. It thank you. That's NPR critic Eric decades.

"And Charles Feldman consulted with Ryan Patrick senior media correspondent for CNN and host of reliable sources Brian take us into that newsroom. Yesterday. With the most recent aspect of this Jeff Fager for for what you've heard what was going on in their the newsroom was shell shocked because this firing directly related to how the newsroom I've been covering failure. I I gotta take my hat off to the reporters are CBS. They have been bigger Asli covering their own scandal at their own company about moon Bazan about bigger. So the other day, you reach out to figure for comment, he replied with this text message, saying be careful, you know, people have lost their jobs for coming out trying to harm me. So as a result ups says figure was fired not forget harassment allegations. But because of the inappropriate text message that dilation of company policy, but that's really just a pretext for what is the bigger by UBS to replace Baker because the Ronan Farrow story in the New Yorker back in July did fine. It did have detailed allegations Fager engaged in unwanted touching and other inappropriate behavior. So physically one way or another CBS. Way to fire the head of sixty minutes. Okay. So Brian here we have the situation with CBS, and we mentioned earlier in our show. The Tiffany network known for its quality known for its high standards and also for having a guy like les Moonves who was a brilliant. Programmer, and Jeff Fager who was only the second guy to head sixty minutes. The first being of course, the creator, Don Hewitt where does all of this upheaval, leave CBS? You nailed it. This is an incredible trio of events three o of departures from CBS. And in some ways CBS is the most scarred of all the networks in this metoo movement. That's been going on for less than a year. I think what PBS now has to do you're out who's gonna leave this company and try to make sure the culture is up to the twenty first century because right now, the company only has an acting CEO. So I know who you're saying all the right thing. But he was the number two for a long time. So the board is now searching for a successor. They also have to find a successor for Jeff Fager, sixty minutes. The only person that already has been replaced is Charlie rose, of course, Charlie rose replaced by John Dickerson on this morning. So it has been a breathtaking reckoning for CBS. But I think it's symptomatic of a broader problem inside the media business for far too long too. Many men were able to abuse their power, and too many women's careers were sidelined as a result. And what we are seeing now for the first time in some accountability. Interesting place for the board to have to go in and pick somebody. But also interesting for the the head of CBS news. I mean, he and this is this is strange to to watch. He got a street ambush from his own reporters with cameras saying, hey, can you comment on this? I've never seen it before you went over to sixty minutes. The office is across the street. He has some angry staffer sixty minutes who were saying why did you just fire our boss? We love our boss. The reality is that so staffers feel very loyal to Fager even though he'd been accused of sexual misconduct. So he talked to the staff on the way out the camera crew CBS waiting for him. Roads declined to comment. But I think rose deserves credit for soaring that his newsrooms able to cover this story independently. That's what you were viewers deserve roads. Isn't it incredible position of having his boss moon best and one of the employee's failure both accused of misconduct in the same magazine article? So now and now figures out as well. And I think this is a period where you'd be asking try to move on. We should also point out one of the awkward situation here Fager, not only is denied the allegations against him. He has claimed these sources have an axe to grind he says they're trying to hurt sixty minutes. So he's not going down without a fight. But Brian, you know, you mentioned something interesting in passing that CBS is the most bruised now because of the me to move in. But that raises an interesting question either CBS is unique among the networks for traces the question why is that or not unique which raises the question? Why aren't we hearing anything over at NBC and ABC, right? I would say that NBC fire and Matt Lauer was the big pit at point that networks continue to be questions about SaaS. Bye, bye executives at work. And what I would say is stay tuned. We know that the Daily Beast and other outlets have been working on stories about NBC. Look, I don't wait for bad news for anybody. But I do hope that all of this pain says been bottled up for decades all these accounts from women in various industries media. So they can now start to come out and feel safe and feel protected to come out because in the past a lot of women didn't they will be believed even men who had experience did not think they would be believed. And now that it's clearly changed but the question. CBS? I think for a number of different reasons the stories about CBS came out more quickly. But what we've seen in the past eleven months story. Is it every time you think this is slow down every time you're saying there, there isn't anything more cover, then comes another bombshell. I mean, look at Farrow just last week. Another story about CBS. All right. Brian Stelter, CNN's media correspondent host of reliable sources. You're listening to open line.

And last November CBS this morning co anchor Charlie rose, also let go amid similar allegations. Michael Calderone is senior media reporter for politico. He's based in New York, and he's been following all of these developments. I asked him earlier today. What if anything this says about the culture at CVS and CBS news? Look, we've now had three of the biggest names in television news, not even just at CBS news leave that network now within the last ten months all amid a flurry of sexual harassment allegations, Charlie rose last November, and unless moonville has on Sunday that the CEO of of all of CBS and now Jeff Fager the head of sixty minutes and somebody who spent more than three decades and CBS just out today. And it's remarkable because if you watch Nora O'Donnell on CBS this morning show on Monday. He taught you know, she was she was clearly upset about what has happened inside this network. And the statement that she read hit knowledge was the same one that she read ten months ago. So we really seen this network rattled by the metoo movement, which has caused a reckoning throughout our business throughout the news media, but we've seen this especially pronounced at CBS news, given the high profile people that have lost their jobs and just Egger who has been at CBS news for thirty six years. In a statement saying he was not ousted because of sexual harassment, but because of an Email exchange with a fellow employees. What was that all about? Right. So just so initially when when the news broke the figure was out. I think everyone assumed it had to with the allegations of both inappropriate touching and condoning an atmosphere of sexual harassment that were relate in two big New Yorker stories in the last couple of months, but interesting enough see David Rhodes, who's the president of CBS news said that the termination didn't have to do with allegations. That were in the news which are still being investigated by the company, and then just figure came out. And also said it didn't have to do with with the reports about the alleged the allegations against him. But it also had to do with an incident in which he said he sent a harshly worded. Text message to CBS reporter who was covering the allegations against him. Basically urging this reporter to treat him fairly. Now. I haven't seen this text message. But I could understand how somebody with Jeff acres clout at CBS news who has run sixty minutes. It's it's bigger. You know, most powerful news show for the last fifteen years how that could seem intimidating to a reporter to get him sending what he even described as a harsh message to this person, basically, urging them that he needs to be treated fairly, and and David Rhodes, the president didn't specifically say that was the reason but presumably that was what finally caused us. And so you have a lot of people obviously wondering both inside CBS and outside the network. Whether the network management was just looking for a reason to fire Fager given the allegations without explicitly firing him over the allegations. Because the Fager said I've been here thirty six years. Sending one text message doesn't seem to be enough of a rationale for for getting the axe. And let me ask you about the reporting of Ronan Farrow in the New Yorker based on the story that you have at politico dot com. He has nineteen current and former employees who attest to figgers harassment and inappropriate touching specifically wooded. He report on. So there are two things. Really he reported both that faker especially at parties has been accused of grabbing female employees one in particular in the most recent peace that feral wrote over the weekend. You know, said that, you know, he had grabbed her behind at a party, and that it was almost understood within the network within sixty minutes, at least that there was something called the quote, unquote, faker arm in which he got got way too close with with young women on staff that was the one thing. Now, what all it's also been reported by pharaoh and also in the Washington Post was that. You're more broadly either enabled or condoned, a real frat house atmosphere inside sixty minutes and one that was tolerant of the kind of sexual harassment that we have also seen at other networks and other news organizations. So basically, those two allegations one women who feel like the he was inappropriately touching them at events, especially and then to that he more broadly allowed this culture to persist for number nurse, and where people were intimidated to push back. We're talking with Michael Calderoni is senior media reporter for politico. Where does this leave CBS with the ouster of les Moonves and sixty minutes, which is you indicated is the biggest profit center for CBS news. Sixty minutes is the top rated new show on broadcast news and has been for many years in addition to having a sterling reputation for investigative journalism. And so the the network now has to find a replacement for Fager, and it was indicated that at the current management was behind this decision to terminate his contract. There is still investigation going on being being held being led by a couple law firms into both sixty I'm sorry into both CBS news. Which accorded since the Charlie rose stuff early this year, and which which continued and basically brought in the last moon viz allegations that CBS more broadly. So you still have this investigation going on? Now, what what can happen now one one part is with les Moonves says we still don't know what type of settlement if any he's gonna get initially when it was reported that moon Bez was was out within the past week or so it was reported. He could take home one hundred and twenty million dollars even up to one hundred eighty million million dollars in a settlement. Now, obviously, many groups and many people were outraged that somebody who is under these types of allegations could walk away with such a big payout. And what it seems like now it's the payout is going to be determined by what is found out in this investigation. Now, then it goes to Fager is also the allegations against him are also being investigated, which he has denied. So he's already out of network. But you know, I I mean, this is a guy who has had. A real incredible career over the last several decades, I was at two events within the last few months in which Jeff Fager was being honored for his for his work in the news business over all these years. So I think he's already lost his position at CBS news, and he's done, and it's happened, and it really abrupt way. And I think we'll see what comes out in these investigations. And how it affect his legacy? More broadly in the news business and details available at politico dot com. Michael Calderone joining us from New York. Thank you for being with us. Thanks so much and this note on sexual harassment in the workplace, it has been one of the senior signature issues for Virginia congresswoman, Barbara Comstock, as part of a panel discussion earlier today here in Washington the Republican lawmaker discussing measures that she supports to combat harassment in the workplace. I we do want to get our sexual harassment Bill passed here in congress, and that is hopefully a priority. Here this month. And I happen to think the house version, which was stronger is the version that we should be doing more accountability and really zero tolerance. And the good news was this was a result, very bipartisan work and support and men and women. So I think this was very unique initially people thought this just might go away. And and we know it's not going away. We have to continue to sign a light on it. So. We are looking forward to seeing that Bill. I finally get resolved in and pass another area that I like explore today. Anything is going to be is very important are women on boards. You know, when you look at the business community at large and you see. Women just aren't on boards. Misgiving example, les Moonves? That's in the news this week two out of twelve members. I believe when I looked at who is going to be deciding his fate where women so unless Moonves when they fired Charlie rose, very seriously came out and make the state made these statements, and yet, you know, his board that was backing him up all this time. Even when these stories came out was largely Matt no not that women can't be wrong about some of these things too. But I think we do need to sign a light on that. And nobody's talking about that. I don't know what the resolution of that is. But I think when you point out to your family to out of your twelve members are women. Maybe that's why part of why you have a problem when you look at the media companies. And I mean, those are the prominent ones that we've seen, but we know on corporate boards. Women still are hitting not twenty percent ceiling and when you actually look at the members who are the people who are on those boards. I know all of you here could think of. Plenty of women who match the talent or the caliber of the men there. And for some reason, they don't get called. I know in my own district. I have I was at an event. A few years ago and Sheila Johnson who familiar with Philip Johnson and her prominence in the business community started entertainment company, owner of three. Sports. Businesses to she's never been asked to be on a corporate board. Now, first African American billionaire in the world, and somehow that's scape that someone ever made that phone call. I've found that amazing represented Barbara Comstock, she represents northern Virginia in the tenth congressional district in reelection battle. And by the way, the pound today looking at sexual harassment in the workplace politico is describing it as an October surprise for President Trump. We learned today that adult film actress, and stripper stormy Daniels has written a new book scheduled to be released October second, it is titled full disclosure, and she says it will have more details on her alleged affair with Donald Trump back in two thousand six she discussed the book earlier today on ABC's the view the book is actually dedicated to my daughter, it's it was written for her. I felt and there was a period of time where I was like great now, I can't write a book, even though I've been working on this book for years because people are going to use it against me and say, I did it for reasons. I can't write this book. And then that has now turned again after you know, everybody knows that a lot of the sixty minutes was cut down for time. And there are things that I said in my interview that I really wanted people to know there are very important to me that I didn't get to say. So I was like I'm gonna write everything and included and people can think what they want about me. But at least it's the truth. Stormy Daniels saying that she will write explicit. Details of exactly what happened. Her book also expected to include her relationship with Donald Trump and her career choice. It comes out October second titled full disclosure, Larry cudlow, the director of the White House. National Economic Council briefly addressing the controversy concerning his predecessor earlier today during a Q and A session with reporters. He was talking trade in the economy. Larry cudlow was asked whether he would remove papers from the president's desk to keep him from signing them something that Bob Woodward reports in his new book about Gary Cohn. Here's Larry cudlow..

What is absolutely no evidence that we are using that to opposite lose their jobs. Take your severance. You're not a very good attorney. That's a different point. That's a different point. What you said is that the metoo movement was ridiculous. Different. When it's when it's doing what it is taking people down on accusations from thirty years ago. If you have people who confessed to say, yes, I did inappropriate things that that's different. But when you have folks who are making accusations from ten twelve fifteen years ago thirty years ago, where there's absolutely no way to verify this people are losing their jobs will be ostracized. That's ridiculous unsubstantiated uncorroborated accusations that our old are very very problematic. You're absolutely right. But when you confuse apples and oranges, which is what you're doing and criticizing the whole meeting me too movement. The metoo movement is this Anthony. It's women who are finally saying I was oppressed in the workplace I was a victim of sexual harassment. I was a victim of sexual assault. I never spoke up because no one ever would believe me. That doesn't then correlate to them actually making a false accusation. There are women many many women who have been on the bad receiving end of wage disparity sexual assault gender discrimination who've kept their mouth shut and never said anything at. I would. I'm surprised Anthony by you, not supporting women. Well, I'm not going to support certain women, and I'm not going to support a movement. We're one of the leaders say even if people were exonerated, they're guilty. I know of no leader of any movement who is. Alan made that comment. She's. The leader of the movement. Well, she's one of the leaders, ma'am. You know, what what are you watching what she is one of the spokespeople of that little bit. Of course, she is. I'm watching I'm watching hundreds and hundreds of women friends of mine who have who have kept silent. I'll tell you in the last couple of weeks. In regard to the Catholic church. I've heard four stories from women friends about all kinds of things that happen to them with priests that they've never told me and they've been my friend for thirty years. They're not going to file a claim. They're not going to ask for money. They just they're gonna start speaking up. Well, you know what I personally? Hey, here's why it bothers me a great deal being black band and knowing the history of people make Yankees station against black men coming from white women at SAM's, and whatever have cost people their lives. I'm sensitive to things being thrown folks without evidence. I'm sorry. That's just me. And when you have movements like this that there are aspects of it that is troubling. Sided coin. What wouldn't there be a certain percentage of African Americans in this community who were victims of certain things, and they never got to say anything because they believed they wouldn't be believed. And now it's time for them to speak up to no, not the ones, I know. Because here's the people that I know here's the here's the women that I know if you rate them when you rape them. They went to the. Authorities. They didn't hold it in. And you don't then you don't know alive in may. I'm talking about people that I know they didn't wait around. They didn't wait for years when something happened to them that they felt was wrong. They went through the authorities immediately. And I just find it very strange that all of these people and all that. Chases from the beach, you even in these other cases where no one ever comes forward. When the evidence is fresh what things could be happening, especially when you charge somebody who happened to be African American in the sixty of the course, they're they're they're they're plenty of court cases. In which people make false allegations Firmani, and they're liars. There's plenty of that. There's also there's also people who have not spoken up about things. Each case has to be fully investigated and Vedder. Is that what happened to left? There is an investigation underway. But it's far from complete at least from what I read on the internet. But you're right. He's out already. He's already. He's gift what how many women combined twelve Dominique accusations happened before he was either CBS. That's true. Consensual now. Even if you change your mind you had one where was his own Brooke. Yes, she said, yes, we had consensual sex. Years later. I say, no. And I didn't want you to touch me. So now, I'm bringing up.

And I and then you hear people say, well, wait a minute. It's severance. We should get a part of it. We should get a part of it.

We'll get into that. Me too to tell you about hashtag me too early. Jeff Fager has stepped down the sixty minutes, executive producer. There was named in reports about tolerating and abusive workplace. His step down more. Details. Tolerating was Lesley Stahl getting Hansie. Well, the Oprah Oprah's been doing sixty minutes. Yeah. I haven't watched sixty minutes in a very long time for meat hooks on everybody meat hooks. Well, there is a fight over a trail to tell you about west of the one one and a Thousand Oaks hidden valley area. This is all around the area of lake Sherwood. There's a trail that cuts through the community of lake Sherwood now lake Sherwood is a gated development, very fancy home to people like Wayne Gretzky Sylvester Stallone, and the fight is one that we've heard about before and other areas public versus private who gets to use the trail as it just people who live there, or is it open for all of us and who owns the trail. I in terms of if the company that says, they own the land didn't exist until recently in that trails been there for fifty sixty seventy years. Do they do they have the right to tell people that can't be on it? It's an inch the legal fight over. This is pretty interesting. But there are no trespassing signs on this on this trail. And it goes basically who, but who put those up it wasn't the Santa Monica mountains, national natural reserve, the put them up. It's people that live there. So it cuts through lake Sherwood, and it goes from basically hidden valley up to the Santa Monica mountains, national wreck area, and the most interesting perhaps in most gruesome part of this is that at one point a guy named David Margulis was on horseback. A couple years ago says a guy tells him, hey, you're not supposed to be here. This is private property of Sherwood development company. That's a big realistic company owned by the guy who owns a dole foods, David Murdoch. And according to David Margulis, this guy, whoever was said that he had no right to be there soon after that Margulis gets popped with an illegal grading complaint filed with Ventura County because he was doing some trail work on the path. That are on his property that linked to those that are on the Sherwood development property, he counter Suzy files a lawsuit alleging that this company would development has been discouraging public use of the trail as part of an effort to expedite the development process and increase the exclusivity of the properties and therefore the value of the properties. Now all of this. There are probably dozens of cases just like this in courts right now in southern California. But this one has a unique. Thing to it flavor. Smell perhaps a carcass? Yeah. This story has a carcass rotting deer. Carcass was found on August fourth. But there were no signs of ants or flies on the carcass. So this seems like a body dump because not only were there. No flies or bugs. They found discarded rubber gloves and fresh tire tracks. So people are leaving deer carcass on the trail to lure mountain lions to get people to stop using the trail and see a mountain lion. Probably not going to go back to that trail. And what's that on the tree over there? It's one of three motion activated cameras that were pointed directly towards this. Dear Kark now. Listen, David Margulis says there's only a couple of reasons why it would be there. Obviously he thinks somebody intentionally put the deer there to lure mountain lions onto his ranch. Right. Hey fumble mountain lion. Free dead meat. I'm in. Or to create some sort of a danger if they were to use the trails. He says they may have deliberately acted with the intention to do harm to the local mountain population by poisoning the deer. Either. One of those two is completely illegal. You can't drop a deer carcass to lure mountain lions. And you definitely can't drop a poisoned deer carcass in order to kill the mountain lions. So this this fight will continue to got like a nineteen point deer. Carcass plan over there. What you can. And can't do with a carcass just saying everybody should know if you've got a deer carcass laying around. There are only a few things that you can do with it. All right. We've got a bad coach to tell you about when we come back, and I don't understand this. You're going to have to explain your species behavior to me, not my species. We're in the same species.
