"Big today. Look at what be John did Look at what Rochon did. I know we're gonna have a new quarterback, but this is what we can do. Is it too late? Well, I think we should get to the urban Meyer situation. The next segment, but No, really weird way. I know this is gonna sound crazy. This game kind of made me mad. It's a Texas fan did it? It made me mad because I saw what we should have been seeing all season long. We saw on offense that was It was actually hitting their marks. We saw Beach and Robinson finally getting his due. He was finally getting some blocking. And I was thinking, you know, why did we not see this in the three losses? Where is this against Oklahoma? Where was this against TCU? Why did it take 10 weeks for them to finally figure out the offense that is productive? You bring up a very good point, because what flashed in my mind today, when be John Robinson looked frankly, unstoppable was win The late Cedric Benson's freshman year when Matt Brown did not play Cedric the first half of the season did not play him against the U. The week after. Oh, you Cedric Benson started running the ball and the rest is history. You know, I don't wanna be harsh on Herman after a victory because he gotta win. Winning solves all problems, but Just told me that he clearly does not know his team. Otherwise, the The main focus point, the focal point of the season would have been get beach on the ball, and then we'll pass the ball after that. That's that's That's a good point, because right now I think the identity of this team Is run first and past second. They did a great job of that today, but they did a great job of be John Blocking for be John Robinson. And let me tell you what, you got A tip your hat to the offense of line cause me quit on him. Cursed. Adler had a terrible injury, dislocated his ankle and by the way, he's on the plane coming back with the team tonight, he was there and they sank. Texas fight for him in the locker room and an emotional scene, apparently, but I think the identity this team now and forever been, you're exactly right should be run first past second, and they did it today. We didn't see into the crazy play calling in crucial situations where they went. Run for five yards pass pass punt, and they didn't rely on similar to be their leader. Russia, which has been the queue here for 2.5 seasons, HS. It was a good game. Don't get me wrong. Texas County got a victory. It was a much needed victory rolls. We probably wouldn't be talking about you know the possibility of Herman being here next year, but it also the same time. It was frustrating because I saw what could have been all season long. Yeah, And yeah, it was an inferior Kansas state team who was a lot of injuries on defense. But You you for entire season. You have not been getting your best player the ball. It really is stranger than the emergence today of be John Robinson and the way he carried himself and the moves. He may not only running the ball, but when he caught the ball as well as we go to break, Let's get you up to date on some scores around the country nationally, going on right now. Stanford leads Washington 31 26. That is Stanford was a big underdog in that game. BYU leech Coastal Carolina 14 to 13. Or get in California had just started. Florida defeated Tennessee 31 19. Notre Dame thrashed Syracuse but it was a struggle early 45 to 21, Ohio State. A lot of people are concerned about Ohio State that they've been because he had so many covert injuries in people with covert Ohio State defeated Michigan State 52 12, the Aggies defeated Auburn 31 to 22 more regular season games for the Aggies. Indiana surprised Wisconsin and that Was it, Madison. Wow, and they did it with the backup quarterback 14 and nothing. As we said earlier. TC over Oklahoma State 29 22 Mac in North Carolina over western Carolina. 49 9, Iowa, Down Illinois 35 21. And I want to mention this score because the rice owls shut out the thundering herd of Marshall rice at now. Two and two on the year, Marshall was seven and oh, entering this game, and the rice house defeated Marshall 22. Nothing. We have room for you 512836 year old 5 90. When we come back, we're going to talk about the future of Tom Herman. We're gonna talk about Urban Meyer. We're going to take your phone calls. This is the.

"For covid nineteen as well as a watchlist so. I guess they're observing. The other businesses access to purchase food is now limited because of another order. Issued by the governor requiring capacity limitations. You said andy at all stores. New mexicans are now waiting outside standing in line for up to two hours. It's almost like communism how that happens. When the government takes over the economy it starts seeming like the government runs the yukon red lines. Have you seen them in texas twenty-five thousand families in line for miles right now miles while i remember seeing getting all again right now so over the all over the country according to this. The governor's office's disputing the claims saying quote. The state is not forcing anyone to stand in a crowded line. As you suggest. Well then why are they doing it. I love lines. That is some new mexico sport. The state isn't forcing them as in the states. Not putting a gun to these people's heads in making them wait in the lines. They could just go home and starve if they want it. They're hungry who's oh yes good. Catch john block at finan post. Said the governor's office claims are untrue. Easily just provable. He posted photos of new mexicans. Waiting in long lines outside of grocery stores with dates and timestamps taken between november thirteenth. And the twenty third of this month upon the news that limits of seventy five people inside each store retailers preemptively began limiting capacities to begin compliance with the mandate. The governor's office issued a statement to kkob four news tv saying quote. There is no community in the state of new mexico. Covid nineteen closures have closed off all food and water or medicine options for any community or group of p. They're so generous. Leaving a few options every single community where the virus is forcing closers. the virus didn't force the closures. You guys did. The government gang forced these closures. They say they have alternate stores. Alternate resources moreover stores are only ordered closed for the protection of public safety when the store staff members have an abundance of covid nineteen infections among no shirley you and everyone in new mexico can agree that not one of us would like to be shopping among staff. That are contagious. How does she know not know that. Not everybody in in in new mexico agrees it. This is why you have to chase. These politician pigs down at their houses because they they don't know apparently they don't pay any attention to what people actually think to the fact that there's dissent infections infections based on meaningless tests right right piece. Highly highly highly questionable. I would point you to what the actual inventor of the said. Pcr tests actually said in no uncertain terms. He said that the pcr tests are not to be used to diagnose sickness. That's what the actual inventor said. He died a couple months before this whole thing kicked off last year. Lucky lucky is geez. it's we we. We have to consider that these tests. What do they mean was he a young guy who got wacked because he knew too much about how the test works. Maybe it wasn't so lucky. He he or did you like live a full life and then just diabled. He wasn't that old honestly. I think he was probably in his early sixties. There was a really strange thing that went on over the last five or six years. I've been watching it. Which is in many different states. Several different countries there have been holistic. Doctors being killed anders ben like twenty five murders of holistic doctors which. I don't think that's very common normally. Who's mur guys. We don't know we just know that they're getting killed. Nobody knows that's creepy. I know i those. It's not me. Nobody knows the other. Nobody knows who the other guy with the same name. A lotta those what andy. I actually lost my train. That's yeah so Shutting down grocery stores if there are more than a handful of covid nineteen cases as though the stores are going to let these people continue to work. They're not gonna do that as soon as they see that. One of their employees has one of these positive tests whether the test was legiter. Not they're going to tell them they got to go home. But that's not good enough for the government gang there in new mexico. No they're going to shut entire grocery stores entire walmart's down which is interesting because up until this point the argument had been that. They're favoring the mega corporations over the little is and that's definitely true but now they're even closing down the mega corporations. The i think it's just a matter of somebody didn't pay the right people off. Which is unusual. Usually the mega corporations know exactly who to bribe. That's how they became mexico corporation. Or maybe they're doing it. They go you know we're going to act like we're Closing them to just one or two walmart's who cares right to. They've been making billions since this thing started. Also an on the other side of the country go to rhode island where governor gina raimondo's tweeting out beginning next. Monday november thirtieth. We're entering a two week pause. This is the key to our winter strategy. During this time we'll be able to prevent overwhelming to our hospital system without the need for a total lockdown. Here's what's this is our strategy to. Did we all get together and talk about it. Did we come up with a with a plan to do this voluntarily. Nor is this her strategy that she is imposing on a bunch of people who had nothing to do with it. Yeah that's going to be the ladder on that one So then she says here's what the possible look like. And she includes a little chart which shows you the will be open including in person pre k. through eight school childcare manufacturing construction personal services and they got a little clippers a little hair cutting thing next to that and healthcare ltd will include person high school. Social gatherings will be limited to one household so no social gathering. Who's even say the indoor dining thirty one house on the state where they were all going to do they're gathering. That didn't seem like a good idea. Indoor dining at thirty three percent capacity early closures. Meaning they're gonna shut everybody down by ten pm and one household per table retail will be restricted to one person for every one hundred square feet. Big box stores will be differently restricted one person for every one hundred and fifty square feet. So that's not a whole lot of People houses of worship will be at twenty five percent capacity according to the rhode island pause. And what will be closed will be in person colleges and universities so apparently it's fine to have pre k. Up through eighth grade totally open. High school will be limited. Whatever that means college will be completely closed if you don't indoctrinate them when they're young you might move that child. He might think for himself and that has got to be. Prevent offices will also be closed quote when possible they say in parentheses bar areas will be clue. What do you want to bet that none of that. It's not possible to lay off any government. Employees yup recreational venues will be closed indoor sports facilities gyms and group fitness organized sports. Oh excludes the ncaa and professional sports so just increase the monopoly there. Yeah so anybody with a little sports team or whatever you can have a game but it's okay for the nfl or anybody else who chris. Nfl teams and rhode island but whatever professional teams. Long as. you're getting paid to play sports. Then it's fine so there you go. There's your rhode island pause.

We do have some good news so it's been a pretty depressing night with all these ridiculous thanksgiving restrictions and now grocery stores being shut down in some of them being shut down in new mexico. If you're feeling depressed after the show. I want you to go. Listen to song called alice's restaurant by arlo. Guthrie thanksgiving tradition. It'll put a smile on your face to know Something that put a smile on my face. Is this update on the story. We reported on back on saturday. Show where we played the audio track from the video of a gym in the buffalo new york area that they were having a meeting and they were calling the meeting a protest. 'cause protests are protected. Right so they were having a protest inside this gym and the government goons found out about it. They said at least two. Maybe three sheriff's officers down with a health inspector bureaucrat. Have you seen this have right. So i love it. It was so. I love it. They followed them. They told these sheriffs. You leave until you have a warrant and until then we are not. We don't want you here get out and they were and that was the one time where i'm like okay. Chanting works and this is good for chanting where they get out get out and they basically didn't push him but they use their words to remove them from the premises and it didn't matter what these sheriffs said. They were just like you know. They weren't answering their questions. They weren't gonna fall for their b s and they got rid of them now. There's an update on this case and it gets well this guy. Whoever this guy is that owns the business he's awesome so according to the blaze dot com the fed up. Us marine and small business owner in new york. Ripped up a fifteen thousand dollar fine for violating the corona virus restrictions on live television tuesday in defiance of rules ordering businesses to close and limiting public and private gatherings to just ten people. Now by the way can see in the background So he's being interviewed on fox. I guess while he's doing this and he's surrounded by what appears to be maybe people in at in the background maybe even more than he's got a huge wall of people behind him so he's not alone and in fact that's why the video works so well is because there's a crowd of people that shouts these cops outs like numbers. Yeah you've got to have the numbers. And that's why the whole new hampshire migration is important because we can get our numbers up by coming to the same geographic area together. Not a we get our numbers up but you know if some of the status leave town that makes it a lot easier to and that happens. Oh yeah a lot of our our biggest and best haters. They aren't around anymore. Susana bruce gone she moved or a bunch of stop freaky anders or moved to massachusetts and some of them just were bums and god for closed yet so going on here so he ripped up the fine while he was on live television his name robbie narrow the owner of athletes unleashed crossville. Jim in orchard park new york so he was giving up money to the state. It would be like giving up his family. He was fine after a confrontation with an official from the erie. County health department and erie county sheriff's during a protest against the corona virus restrictions on businesses held into narrows. Jim friday the police and health department official told to leave deniro's property and go get a warrant in a video that went viral on tuesday evening to narrow was interviewed by fox news about the incident. And what happened afterward. He told fox quote. I posted on facebook friday night that i wanted to get together with business. Owners and protest and the lockdown that feels infringing upon our freedom. We were about twenty minutes into that meeting. When some sheriffs in a department of health official showed up uninvited. my business was closed. We are not conducting business. This was a protest. He said when some of the protesters asked to narrow what they should do he told them to get the officials to leave. He said quote. These patriots took it upon themselves to stand shoulder to shoulder and tell them to get out and we were right because if we were wrong they would have called for backup and come back but they didn't they left. He said which is an important thing. Yeah although i gotta say there's gonna be another step here because they say don't come back until you can come back with a warren who cares if they have a warrant scher if the law is wrong fight anyway. Yeah i mean you're not wrong about that. Nobody that's this is one of the biggest pushbacks. I've say yes. It's a yes huge start. We've got to make we've eventually got to make the jump from. They're not obeying the law as written. So why should we law which is repugnant. To justice and to the constitution is no law at all as.

"I think I would even the odds a little bit but I don't think that that John Jones is interested in that fight at heavyweight. I think you know he's spoken pretty frankly about the idea of not giving any advantages him having to wins over him him being the light heavyweight champion cornmeal would come down <hes> if you wanted that fight <hes> I would rather see it a heavyweight but I don't anticipate that happening heavyweight. Do you subscribe to the Notion Year Creek that the pressure is now on John Jones that we've seen other champions like Henry pseudo like Amanda Nunez take the challenge challenge very recently and step up gopher another title and John has always stayed at two five and he's never he's flirted a couple of times but never really seriously and it seems like the options are limited and again. I'm not changing my stance here. A two five is more interesting than ever but I think the majority of those youngsters slash contenders can afford maybe one or two before fighting someone like John Jones and that even includes Dominic Reyes who am I if we're GONNA go with the to a five or it has to be him but you know maybe we can get people a little more jazzed up about him fighting John Jones and so do you think that the pressure is now on for him to step up and fight the winner of D._C.. Coach or any heavyweight for that matter sorta like what Anderson Silva Day when he fought James Irvine amid to your heavyweight just to test the waters because everyone else is doing it teams. I don't think the pressure is on him because I think the difference in a lot of these scenarios that he's the he's The a side of this equation any any fight that he's in if if he goes up to heavyweight if he stays light heavyweight he's E._a.. Side he's in control of this narrative so I think it's on his pace. It's at his leisure when he decides where to go but I also think you know the the money fights are heavyweight for him. I don't think that that Dominic Reyes or John Block which is <hes> a money fight for him. I think those are just title defences and so if he wanted to go up to fight. Let's say a deep in the ocean or for me. <hes> that would be a bigger draw. That would be a money fight but I don't. I don't necessarily think that there's pressure around him and I don't necessarily think that he's one to succumb to that pressure. I think it's really him getting himself. Ready in choosing got right moments go to heavyweight because honestly he's in control of how that plays out. I agree with you. That's the best fight it's the biggest fight. It's the most as lucrative fight I don't have as much interest in seeing that fight a to a five as I do at heavyweight at heavyweight..

Coach or any heavyweight for that matter sorta like what Anderson Silva Day when he fought James Irvine amid to your heavyweight just to test the waters because everyone else is doing it teams. I don't think the pressure is on him because I think the difference in a lot of these scenarios that he's the he's The a side of this equation any any fight that he's in if if he goes up to heavyweight if he stays light heavyweight he's E._a.. Side he's in control of this narrative so I think it's on his pace. It's at his leisure when he decides where to go but I also think you know the the money fights are heavyweight for him. I don't think that that Dominic Reyes or John Block which is <hes> a money fight for him. I think those are just title defences and so if he wanted to go up to fight. Let's say a deep in the ocean or for me. <hes> that would be a bigger draw. That would be a money fight but I don't. I don't necessarily think that there's pressure around him and I don't necessarily think that he's one to succumb to that pressure. I think it's really him getting himself. Ready in choosing got right moments go to heavyweight because honestly he's in control of how that plays out. I agree with you. That's the best fight it's the biggest fight. It's the most as lucrative fight I don't have as much interest in seeing that fight a to a five as I do at heavyweight at heavyweight..

Brayden Schenn gives the Saint Louis blues while one nothing lead with a rich shot from about twenty feet out. Kenny, this all starts with terror Sankoh getting down the ice and negating an icing. And then that allowed Saint Louis to make a change on defense to get a match up. They wanted. And then they do what they do best. They get on the puck. They don't allow an easy outlet for Boston. And they turn that into one block shot a second blocked shot and then shed was able to pick it up from the right boards scape right into the slot. Then from about twenty five feet out.

"The Columbia journalism review. And it read last week was brutal for American journalism. The first graph goes on in detail, quote by one estimate, BuzzFeed and media properties owned by Verizon and Gannett made plans to lay off more than a thousand people between them and last summer. The daily news suffered massive layoffs, including four dozen reporters editors and photographers and half of its editorial staff once upon a time, the daily news and your post and many other local papers were powerful players in a city's life here in New York to columnist Jimmy breslin and Pete Hamill had incredible influence back in the day, legendary they might some might say they were considered superstars, according to Spike Lee, who is one of the many voices in a new documentary, breslin and Hamill deadline artists it premieres tonight. January twenty eighth at eight PM on HBO. And the film tells the story of these two men in features witnesses to and participants in their lives. Including Robert deniro, Shirley, MacLaine, Gloria Steinem, Tom Wolfe. And even some voices familiar from WNYC radio labs, Robert krulwich, and on the media's brick Gladstone, I'm pleased to have filmmakers in studio Jonathan alter John block and Steve McCarthy. Welcome guys. Thank you. Allison and listeners we want to hear from you. Did you work with Jimmy breslin or Pete Hamill? Do you have a Shourie to stare assured a story to share flattering or unflattering about one of them? Do you have a question for one of the filmmakers or did? You have a remembrance of either man, give us a call. Our number is two one two four three three nine six nine to two two four three three WNYC. Our lines are open. You can also tweet at us at all of it W N Y C. So I I know Steven John well just meeting. Nice to meet you as well. I feel like we've been in the same room at some point in life. NBC free. There you go. We all worked at NBC. I'm still CBS news together. Yes. So John, John Jonathan you can I think it's probably easier. If you call me Jonathan distinguish me from John. John at all I want Steve Jonathan what was it about breslin that made him perfect to tell stories. Well, I think as Nick Poletti who wrote goodfellas says in the film, you could go to Oxford for four thousand years and not learn how to cover the streets the way Jimmy breslin did. So he he came from. Ozone park, queens, originally, and he had people in his family who worked for the city and from a very very early point from when he was sixteen years old he was working newspapers. And and imbibing the life of New York, and so he became really in the whole history of the city. These two guys were the great bards of our city in very different ways at very different styles. Jimmy was rat tat tat, you know, what happened yesterday in New York. Pete was more of a poet Robert krulwich compares his writing to Mahler or a French novel. So these are two very different ways of telling the stories of every day New Yorkers. It's interesting that you mentioned he started very. Young because it was apprenticeship people were apprentices in journalism, then they didn't sort of roll out of fancy schools schools. Yeah. Got any school at all? Neither one of them really went to college. At all started early journalism was different than it wasn't seen as a very lofty. Wasn't it professionals? Yeah. Basically, I very well. Paying a lot of Jewish people in Irish people did it because we couldn't get jobs at the downtown firm Wall Street firms and stuff like that. So it wasn't seen as a clean profession back in those days, but that'll change Watergate. And I think a lot of Ivy league people started to get into and they saw the power of the media as I was inspired very Woodward and Bernstein when I was in college, and yes you, but we, you know, those of us who are college educated in journalism. We have certain assets that we bring you know, if we pay attention in school. Maybe we have a little historical context or a little egg minor expertise and something that we're covering but were missing that street experience. And I think missing a certain kind of story to tell a lot of it though. Wasn't taught somebody Jim Dwyer of New York Times in the film describes Jimmy breslin as a genius who spent his life trying to prove that he wasn't a genius. There was a natural talent that both of these guys had that showed itself over and over again. Natural talent that was honed in Catholic school, by the way. Yes. Yeah. And they talk about the rain Allison one of the things we really try to do with this film is show a lot of their writings, so it's it's not just for people who've been in journalism anybody's ever wanted to write or pre she good rating, and that's hard to do in film. You have to do it very carefully. Pete has a beautiful voice and read the excerpts from his columns beautifully. Jimmy was too old to read his own work effectively. So we hired a guiding Michael respo- Lee played Jackie approval, senior in the sopranos and is introduced now, and he's so good is Jimmy breslin is so good that even people who knew Jimmy breslin. Well, don't realize that it's not Jimmy speaking for for the columns. Honestly, we interview Jimmy a lot before his death and pitas. Well, we we had a call up. Okay. Welcome back. John. Why do you think New York City needed? These two men. Because they were the voice of the little guy. They gave a voice to the unforgotten man and brought him. And the woman woman the forgotten that unforgotten the unforgotten. Into the present day consciousness. Yeah. I think they they they really part of the fabric of of this country. And they're the the little people are the are really what made America great to the president and Hamill readers of the world. There's a lot in this film about race and class in New York City, and and Spike Lee in the late less pain and African American columnists Earle Caldwell and African American columnist. They are talking in the film about how. Breslin, and Hamill were speaking up on behalf of African Americans at a time when nobody else was nearly spoke for for gender people. They spoke for her aides they were courageous app tickly as a Irishmen for their tribe. They were courageous. They went against sort of the tribes. Sometimes I was growing up in Brooklyn at the time reading them. They were in my house, but they weren't popular in my house. My dad was a cop and Jimmy was very tough on the cops. So I I look at them as two courageous guys who who followed their the facts and follow their heart in their type of reporting and column writing that they did I I don't think they just went against the tribe. They went against prevailing, a popular opinion. And certainly one of the stir sterling examples is is Jimmy in the course of the Bernard get subway death wish gunman incident, would you would you really display? Well, in terms of of you have this woman who's trying to get in his face about wouldn't. You want wouldn't you want somebody to protect you or your family and Jimmy is Jimmy's whistling lonely too. Yeah. Yeah. That's what Phil Donahue says. You're listening to near the only guy out there and less pain said it was the scariest time he could remember people in the back. And that's what he says when he found out that they'd been shot in the back allies that game over gets wasn't justified in shooting these teenagers on the subway. One of them was paralysed for life, and and less pain said that as an African American. It was the scariest time it can remember in New York is the entire city was on the side of this, including the crime was really bad. Then you know, I was in New York at the time was very scary on the subways so fear. Of course, we certainly know that now fear can be used to do make people say and do bad things. So that was a time when New York was afraid and Jimmy stood up against that fear and said, you know, what happened is you can't shoot four people in the back. Wrong is wrong. Exactly. And then just a few years after that when a jogger was raped in central park and five black teenagers were arrested. Donald Trump took out full-page ads saying that they should be executed hitting been indicted yet. And he said they should be executed. And both Jimmy breslin. Pete hamill. We focused on PM on this case stood up against Trump. And they explained the way he was using hate and fear. And then of course, his later. Points out thirteen years later. They're true that they didn't do it DNA evidence shows that another man who confessed to the crime was the culprit. So if Trump and had his way they would have been executed for a crime. They didn't commit. Let's get a call. I've got Shirley is calling from Passaic New Jersey on line three. Hi, charlie. Charlie's listening. We'll catch up. Sara Lee are you there? Okay. Charlie. Probably get back to what do you? What do you think they're gifts were storytellers? So the telling detail. Which both of them believed. You couldn't get very easily on the phone. You had to go to the story to chase chase chase as Jimmy said. And it's it's often that little detail that really makes a story and the ethic they also understood that you can come at a story from a lot of different directions. There's no cookie cutter approach to telling a story. But if you want to read. One story that is already even before the film. I think after film a lot more journalism schools, we use it. But for many years, it's been used in journalism schools, it's called well, it's an honor. And it's about the man who dug the grave for John F Kennedy at Arlington cemetery. So the first thing that made that story. So fact of was just the idea of doing it in the first place everybody else was covering the funeral like three thousand reporters recovering the few a lot of luminaries were there bit of an exaggeration. But you know, a lot that that's where the world's attention was general. But, but if you're if you're really a top-flight storyteller, you find an angle that nobody else has. So that the story is not so familiar, so he thought, well, I I'll go interview the grave digger, I'll go with a press pack, isn't and tell the whole story through him. But instead of making it like drawing the conclusions. He just told this very seemingly small story. It's fascinating listening to the late Tom Wolfe in our films. One of the very last interviews. He did describing the beauty of this particular piece, which starts out with the grave digger having breakfast. When he gets the call from the cemetery can. You come in. And you don't even know what he's doing a story is not even know, you don't even know. So you wanna keep reading one of why is Jimmy breslin writing about this of all days when we're in this national crisis, and it becomes clear as you read through the column what's going on. And it was the definition of beautifully rendered story. Yeah. I teach a Montclair state university. And we're going to use this film. We're gonna use those stories to teach them in this case. Look the other way. Sometimes don't go with the pack. Look the other way see what else is going on. And and again, use a small store to tell a way way much bigger one. That's right. That's that's when you find the heart of the story by by looking at those very details at devils in the details, and John block is a specialist at that. By the way, he is the guy who found a lot of the real people that Jimmy reported on. And then persuaded them to come onto the show. But it's also something John has done his entire career. Which is very large complicated important stories, but through real regular people. Let's go to our call. We've got Jessie online too is calling us from Brooklyn and Jesse you were reporter. Hi. Yes. I I was thinking of Jimmy breslin. I would think of doing when I was a reporter I worked at the coast. And I met him at a funeral or at a week for this. Let's you know, worker who died in a workplace accident. And you know, I'm this. I'm a white girl from Long Island, and he liked deputized me to be his translator. Workers of the relatives of the survivors of this accident and also the wealth of the worker who died and at my Spanish, isn't that good?.

"This is all of it on WNYC Jonathan alter John block and Steve McCarthy are my guests. They have made a new documentary breslin and Hamel deadline artists premiers on HBO tonight at eight PM. What do you think these gentlemen, couldn't do today that they did that what wouldn't fly? Well, Jimmy's behavior. Probably in the newsroom, which he did get a cold on once before probably wouldn't have flown. Pete Hamill dated, Shirley MacLaine and Jackie O at the same time. I don't know if that would be acceptable now. No, no, Pete was a lot of people love p Jimmy on the other hand had a lot of issues. And again, we talked about being a complicated, man. But he could be brash. She could be that type of behavior is becoming increasingly difficult to defend nowadays. He would have been called into HR ally. What what did you tell their stories together? Well, there is that natural connection. They were really the the number one and two most famous columnists in New York City. They were like Babe Ruth, and Lou Gehrig, and they were friends, and they they represented a particular kind of journalism that was unlike other mainstream journalism. It also if we had just done a biography of one of them, it would have been more of a biography film by putting them together. We were able to do a film about journalism and what we lost. We thought we had a lot more latitude about that. We did tell their life stories, but I think we also would go into discussions about journalism with people like Crowe, which in Brooklyn stone and things like that to put this into context of what's we lost? What we had what we don't have now. And also to tell a richer story about the life of this city. One of the interesting things is that younger people seem to really like the film, the ones who started film festivals. And it reminds them of a grittier pre Disney, New York, and that their style GIC for even though they never experienced it. It was scary. Awesome. It's some of it was funny. Like, I think the the the the mobster sections of the film like when you see John Gotti in jail talking about Jimmy breslin. It's colorful in a way that the color has been drained of a lot of New York. Now, I think people long for the days when it was a. Funkier city scrappy or let's go to Ellen online seven Ellen is calling us hylan. Hi. So I have a story about Jimmy breslin in the in the nineties. She was commissioned by my bosses who knew him to write the forward to a book we were publishing, and he was very very late. And my boss has had to leave town. They said the one thing you have to do today's get this essay and get it laid out and get it to the winter. So I called his home number. He must have recognized the office number because he picked up the phone. He said, I'm working on. It anyhow. Five minutes later the piece came through on a fax machine. And I had barely finished reading it. When the phone rang again, and I picked up the phone, and he said, well, what do you think is it? Okay. No, hello. This is Jason. No. But also that he, you know, he was so brisk aggressive, but then, but then as soon as he turned it in the next thing, you want is it, okay? Yeah. He had his insecurities. We have a whole section of the film. They think you'll like just Jimmy on the phone. The way he would call up and without identifying himself. He just say J B number one when he was calling a friend or Nick pledge. You know, goodfellas was a good friend of busy. You just describes how Jimmy would be in the middle of a conversation when he would dial his number like it was as if you didn't know that he often filled with expletives, and I I tell story about how e. You know, I was on deadline at Newsweek reading a story about him, and it wasn't going to be entirely flattering. And I pick up the phone. He doesn't identify himself. Of course, he just as alter you f with me. I'll f you good because I'm the F ING John Gotti of journalism and never effing. Forget it. That should be a t-shirt shirt somewhere. This brings me up something I thought about as I was watching the film, and you're all journalists as well as filmmakers writers. What conversations did you have or decisions did you make so at this didn't turn into a love letter to these guys didn't get soggy with nostalgia? Well, I think we're all as you said veteran journalists. So I think we set out to tell the story warts and all and we're going to let the chips fall those great cliches that we use. But I think that we needed to be real, right? They were real we needed to be real we needed to tell the story about Jimmy flying off the handle in using Asian slurs against a young reporter who had criticized him. We went full on that Pete's drinking. You know, he he wrote a book about it. So those things we didn't want to do just one dimensional piece about how great they were. We wanted to show the ups and downs. And and I think it worked, and I think that you you kind of respect Jimmy because of that is life wasn't just one high note wasn't just you can't judge somebody by their worst act, but we didn't actually say that we actually had an interesting debate about this in the editing room. We didn't want to have anything. What happened was we we still haven't explained exactly what happened. It was an Asian American reporter at Newsday. And she and we interviewed her in the film and her name was Mary is Marietta. She's not a professor at northwestern journalism school, and she didn't like a column that Jimmy wrote and she told him. That she thought the column was bad one. She was twenty five years old and Jimmy was. Really angry that she had the temerity to do this. And he went out in the newsroom restarted rage about her. And he called her a yellow Kerr nowadays that would be the end of Jimmy residents career. They almost fired him from Newsday and decided to suspend him. Instead, one of the things we made sure to do was not let him off the hook not have some comment after that saying, oh, well, you shouldn't have one incident that Mars your career, or well, we actually had a quote from somebody very famous who's in the film saying, well, he's not Donald Trump like don't don't overreact to this. And we said, no, we're not going to let him off the hook. This was something that was bad. And and. Well, that's a good question. Sees wife doesn't think he knows what he's saying is bad. He just goes out. There's no filter there sometimes because of his anger, but we Richard Esposito who was there at the time and is a news executive and now a friend of ours suspended him suspended them. But at the at the end of that section as he let them have it, and he said to something the effective in the film that just because you're brilliant and talented doesn't mean you're not a sniveling twelve year old underneath you. Sometimes I think so we tried to be as honest as possible with that and not let him off the. But also by seeing like, the great work. You did in crown heights was a riot in crown heights between African Americans and orthodox Jews Jimmy took a cab to the fry which was difficult and they burn the cab. They pulled him out. They beat Jimmy ripta's closer close off Colin Quinn talks about this in the film. They beat him on his. And. You never. Yeah. If he had been if Jimmy had been fired over the incident with the Asian American reporter, he never would have gone on that other works. It's something that's important for people to keep in mind. He never wholly apologize in the conventional sense. He did by way of his tremendous work. Yeah. He went on. He went on Howard Stern and made the situation worse by John. Let's go to Charlie on line three Charlie's back. Hi, charlie. Charlie says, he's back home. That's truly Carrillo, Shirley. To that. We I don't even think he mentioned it in his column that they they beat them up and re ripped his clothes off and everything else. He didn't see that. As part of the story. The story was what was happening here. Yeah. In this. This piece from nineteen Ninety-one from New York Times covering and it says Mr. breslin was not seriously injured said yesterday as he returned from a lineup that he was saddened by the quote hopelessness of the lives of the individuals who had attacked him, right? That was the essence of breslin Vaas black. I love Kosta sesame said we'll have you know, you champion people or your life. Now, what do you think of them? Now. This is what I think of now, what do you mean by champion? If if I knew I didn't do a very good job did either still there, you know, he says that and then he told John at the age of what eighty seven or eighty six in the film that that's part of the game. You know, getting beat up over the story and Pete also was very very concerned with the lives of the poor. And he was constantly going into. Disadvantaged neighborhoods in writing about their their lives. But we also want to have a lot of funny stuff in the film. So at one point go ahead. Now, speaking a fun. I got a call for line nine but finished good. Well, Pete was very briefly the editor of the New York Post and later was the editor of the new York Daily News. But what he's editor the poster was clowning, Abe Hirschfeld who owned the paper, and he fired Pete and staff went into rebellion. And they basically the inmates took over the asylum and Pete put out the paper from a coffee shop on the ground floor. And it just makes for amusing. He was beloved Pete. He really was with the people that work with him. Everybody still. Gentleman. He is he really. Gentleman, and a brilliant man to he didn't go to college. He's like self taught. I mean, he's just a brilliant brilliant guy in a in a real sweet guy, and yes, we portrayed them as a kind of a playboy back when but he ended up marrying for Kiko and has been married to her for twenty five thirty thirty years, and is really just like a great relationship. And she's you know, he's ailing now, she's helping him so much. So it's wonderful to see. And I think that that was one of the treats is getting to know Pete doing this Pete Pete moved back to Brooklyn recently. And he's writing a book about Brooklyn Jimmy died in two thousand seventeen is a funny story about when Pete was dating Jackie Onassis, Shirley MacLaine at the same time. And then Jimmy wrote a column about it. I'm trying to think of who the equivalent is like, Houma Avidan and data. Avidan compared to. Jackie onassis. She was the most famous woman. Dating late lady Gaga, Madonna, Dan. And if we shall Obama was single like. It's just kind of unimaginable another print journalist ran a position to do that or Jimmy breslin hosted Saturday Night Live. Can you imagine today print journalist being that famous doing TV ads and even a book, author you wouldn't be toasting Saturday Night Live?.

"For NPR comes from Frederick and Howard Stevenson, supporting Olin, college and its work in collaboration with other educators around the world to revolutionize engineering education. And ignite the next generation of engineering innovators. Learn more at Olin dot EDU. You're listening to all of it on WNYC. Thanks so much for joining me this hour this morning. There was a headline in the Columbia journalism review. And it read last week was brutal for American journalism. The first graph goes on in detail, quote by one estimate, BuzzFeed and media properties owned by Verizon and Gannett made plans to lay off more than a thousand people between them and last summer. The new York Daily News suffered massive layoffs, including four dozen reporters editors and photographers and half of its editorial staff once upon a time, the daily news and York Post and many other local papers were powerful players in the city's life here in New York to columnist Jimmy breslin and Pete Hamill had incredible influence back in the day, legendary they might some might say they were considered superstars, according to Spike Lee, who is one of the many voices in a new documentary, breslin and Hamill deadline artists it premieres tonight. January twenty eighth at eight PM on HBO. And the film tells the story of these two men in features witnesses to and. Participants in their lives, including Robert deniro, Shirley, MacLaine, Gloria Steinem, Tom Wolfe. And even some voices familiar from WNYC radio labs, Robert krulwich on the media's Brooke Gladstone, I'm pleased to have the filmmakers in studio Jonathan alter John block and Steve McCarthy. Welcome guys. Thank you and listeners we want to hear from you. Did you work with Jimmy breslin or Pete Hamill? Do you have a Suri to stare assured a story to share flattering or unflattering about one of them? Do you have a question for one of the filmmakers or did? You have a remembrance of either man, give us a call. Our number is two unto 433-9692 two four three three WNYC. Our lines are open. You can also tweet at us at all of it W N Y C. So I I know Steven John well just meeting. Nice to meet you as well. I feel like we've been in the same room at some point in life. NBC free. There you go. We all worked at NBA. I'm still there. CBS? ES news together. Yes. So John, John Jonathan you can I think it's probably easier. If you call me Jonathan so English me from John there, we go. John at all. I won't Steve Jonathan what was it about breslin that made him perfect to tell New York stories. Well, I think as Nick Poletti who wrote goodfellas says in the film, you could go to Oxford for four thousand years and not learn how to cover the streets the way Jimmy breslin did. So he he came from. Ozone park, queens, originally, and he had people in his family who worked for the city and from a very very early point from when he was sixteen years old he was working newspapers. And and imbibing the life of New York, and so he he became really in the whole history of the city. These two guys were the great bards of our city in very different ways at very different styles. Jimmy was rat tat tat, you know, what happened yesterday in New York. Pete was more of a poet Robert krulwich compares his reading to Mahler or a French novel. So these are two very different ways of telling the stories of every day New Yorkers. It's interesting that you mentioned you started very. A young because it was apprenticeship people were apprentices in journalism, then they didn't sort of roll out of fancy schools school schools. Yeah. Go to any school at all. Neither one of them really went to college. At all started early journalism was different than it wasn't seen as a very lofty. Wasn't it professionals? It was a graph that basically I very well. Paying a lot of Jewish people in Irish people did it because we couldn't get jobs at the downtown firm Wall Street firms and stuff like that. So it wasn't seen as a clean profession back in those days, but that'll change Watergate. And I think a lot of Ivy league people started to get into what I saw the power of the media ugly me as I was inspired by Woodward and Bernstein when I was in college, and yes you, but we those of us who are college educated in journalism. We have certain assets that we bring you know, if we paid attention in school. Maybe we have a little historical context or a little. Minor expertise and something that we're covering but were missing that street experience. And I think missing a certain kind of story to tell a lot of it though. Wasn't taught somebody Jim Dwyer of New York Times in the film describes Jimmy breslin as a genius who spent his life trying to prove that he wasn't a genius. There was a natural talent that both of these guys had that showed itself over and over again. A natural talent. That was honed in Catholic school, by the way. Yes. Yeah. And they talk about the rain Allison one of the things we really try to do with this film is show a lot of their writing. So it's it's not just for people who've been in journalism anybody's ever wanted to write or preciado good rating, and that's hard to do. When a film, you have to do it, very carefully. Pete has a beautiful voice and read the excerpts from his columns beautifully. Jimmy was too old to read his own work effectively. So we hired a guy named Michael respo- Lee played Jackie appeals senior in the sopranos in the deuce now. And he's so good is Jimmy breslin is so good that even people who knew Jimmy breslin. Well, don't realize that it's not Jimmy speaking for for the columns. Honestly, we interview Jimmy a lot before his death and pitas. Well, we oh we had a call. Okay. We'll come back. John. Why do you think New York City needed? These two men. Because they were the voice of the little guy. They gave a voice to the unforgotten man and brought him. And the woman woman the forgotten that unforgotten for the unforgotten. Into the present day consciences yet. I think they they they really part of the fabric of this country. And they're the little people are the are really what made America great to the breslin and Hamill readers of the world. There's a lot in this film about race and class in New York City, and and. Spike Lee in the late less pain. And African American columnists Earl Caldwell and African American columnists. They are talking in the film about how president and Hamill were speaking up on behalf of African Americans at a time when nobody else was. And they spoke for for gender people. They spoke for her aides they were courageous app typically as a Irishmen for their tribe. They were courageous. They went against sort of the tribes. Sometimes I was growing up in Brooklyn at the time reading them. They were in my house, but they weren't popular in my house that was a cop and Jimmy was very tough on the cops. So I I look at them as two courageous guys who who followed their the facts and follow their heart in their type of reporting and column writing that they did I don't think they just went against the tribe. They went against prevailing, a popular opinion. And certainly one of the sterling examples is is Jimmy in the course of the Bernard get subway death wish gunman incident, would you would you really display? Well, in terms of of you have this woman who's trying to get in his face about wouldn't you want? Wouldn't you want somebody to protect you or your family and Jimmy is Jimmy's whistling lonely too? Yeah. Phil Donahue, says you're listening to near the only guy out there and less pain said it was the scariest time he could remember shoot people in the back. And that's what he says if you know when he found out that they'd been shot in the back realized that game over gets wasn't justified in shooting these teenagers on the subway. One of them was paralysed for life, and and less pain said that as an African American. It was the scariest time can remember in New York. The entire city was on the side of this, including the manor freetime crime was really bad. Then I was in New York at the time was very scary on the subways so fear. Of course, we certainly know that now fear can be used to make people say and do bad things. So that was a time when New York was afraid and Jimmy stood up against that fear and said, you know, what happened is you can't shoot four people in the back wrong is wrong. Exactly. And then just a few years after that when a jogger was raped in central park and five black teenagers were arrested. Donald Trump took out full-page ads saying that they should be executed. Anything been indicted? Yet. And he said they should be executed. And both Jimmy breslin, Pete Hamill. We focused on piano in this case stood up against Trump. And they explained the way he was using hate and fear. And then of course, years later, they were Lee points out thirteen years later. They're turns out they didn't do it DNA evidence shows that another man who confessed to the crime was the culprit. So if Trump and had his way they would have been executed for a crime. They didn't commit let's go to a call. I've got Charlie is calling from Passaic New Jersey on line three. Hi, charlie. Charlie's listening catch minute. Sara Lee are you there? Okay. Charlie. Probably get back to what do you? What do you think they're gifts were storytellers? So the telling detail. Which both of them believed. You couldn't get very easily on the phone. You had to go to the story to chase chase chase as Jimmy said. And it's it's often that little detail that really makes a story, and they also understood that you can come at a story from a lot of different directions. There's no cookie cutter approach to telling a story. But if you want to read. One story. There's already even before the film. I think after our film a lot more journalism schools, we use it for many years. It's been used in journalism schools. It's called well, it's an honor. And it's about the man who dug the grave for John F Kennedy at Arlington cemetery. So the first thing that made that story so affective was just the idea of doing it in the first place. Everybody else was covering the funeral like three thousand reporters recovering the a lot of luminaries were there bit of an exaggeration. But you know, a lot. But that's where the world's attention was. And so Naro, but but if you're if you're really a top-flight storyteller e find an angle that nobody else has so that the stories not so familiar, so he thought, well, I'll go interview the grave digger, I'll go with the press pack, isn't and tell the whole story through him. But instead of may. Making it like drawing the conclusions. He just told this very seemingly small story. It's fascinating listening to the late Tom Wolfe in our films. One of the very last interviews. He did describing the beauty of this particular piece, which starts out with the grave digger having breakfast. When he gets the call from the cemetery. Can you come in? And you don't even know what he's doing. The story is not even know, you don't even know. So you wanna keep reading one of why is Jimmy breslin rang about this of all days when we're in this national crisis, and it becomes clear as you read through the column. What's going on? And it was the definition of beautifully rendered story. Yeah. I teach a Montclair state university. We're gonna use this film. I'm going to use those stories to teach them in this case. Look the other way. Sometimes don't go with the pack. Look the other way see what else is going on. And and again, use a small story to tell a way way much bigger one. That's right. That's that's when you find the heart of the story by by looking at those very details. The devils in the details, and John block is a specialist at that. By the way, he is the guy who found a lot of the real people that Jimmy reported on. And then persuaded them to come onto the show. But it's also something John has done is entire career, which is still very large complicated important stories, but through real regular people. Let's go to a call. We've got Jessie online too is calling us from Brooklyn and Jesse you were reporter. Hi. Yes. I I was thinking of Tammy Brad learn I would think of doing Brooklyn when I was a reporter I worked at the New York Post, and I met him at a funeral or at a week for this..
