"He received. A text message. And as I mentioned Hell hath no fury. Like a reporter scorned Marie Athens, B C. W Who's that? National lockup? I warn you, my, uh, Emmy Award winning journalism. You're also a pedophile in like little girls and Children, and there's a website. Now. John Dempsey has a news director of an award winning news department. If you came upon some sort of information that in fact, the mayor was involved in something nefarious. What have you And you're going to initiate a reporter. You're going to start an investigative report. Do you do with a voicemail with that sort of It seems like she's tipping her hand. A bit. Yeah. I don't think I would do that. No. Let's go on and listen to a little bit more of the, uh, the voicemail left. I'm so exposing you also when you uh excuse me. Excuse me. Excuse me. Also just a just a point of order, John Is it good to use the M F for term? Know they don't just that in journalism school, is it? Is it ever OK to threaten to kill? Somebody ever. Well, you know, I would say never. Okay, let's listen. This is a Maria Athens from your Alaska. So exposing you. I'm going to get an Emmy. Do you eat a turn yourself in, Kill yourself, or do what you need to do. The sun. Always any of my journalism professors would I suggest that I suggest to a public figure that they kill themselves. That's really probably would not be on the list of things that you do as a As a journalist and look obviously tongue firmly planted in cheek here, I realized I'm making fun of this poor woman who is in distress. You can hear She's very upset. I'm not just playing the tape. For that reason I'll get two. The rest of the story. In just a moment, I will personally kill you and Mara Kimmel, my self You kill this piece of living by the way. That's anti Semitic, just for any young journalists out there. You can't really talk like that. That's that's for bond. That is very, very bad. Very, very bad. And also I do want to pay a compliment to our own Stephen Traffic. Can't you spent considerable time today sanitizing this tape so we can enjoy it. You have met your match. Mother, you have met. Your mother know? Apparently they had an argument. Apparently, they broke up and she wasn't happy. But I don't know the full backstory. But let's just continue. I can't believe I am such a good person and thought I love you. I Hey, I don't even hate you. I will pray for Your Highness. You paint a loser again Anti Semitic by the way. She is subsequently said that he was so smooth those little witty slogans and pictures. He gave me attention when I was lonely, and I'm putting this on the news tonight. OK, That's the second part of this story. That is really Germaine toe. Why we're putting it on this program because, and I'm putting this on the news tonight. Could this get any worse for her At this point, John Dempsey, I don't think so. And just to clarify this is a Is it a small town reporter who was romantically involved with the mayor? And then he broke up with her. And then she became angry. So she left this voicemail. Is that what we have here? Yes, she worked for the Fox last ABC station in Anchorage. K T. B Why? And K y you are? So those are the stations that she did work at a great Friday your mother, so she loves that. That voice mail for my a couple weeks ago, actually, more like several weeks ago. First he tried to ignore, then words started trickling out again. This is my conjecture. Then he said that they had received this email. But the allegations or the rumors swirling that there was a relationship was completely false. And then he came forward and said, Well, actually, we did have a bit of a relation now back to this. This is the most important club and I'm putting this on the news tonight. The station manager. A man described both as Athens fiance and boyfriend and station manager did in fact, prevent the story from airing. But she had an argument with this man, not the mayor. But the news director, the station manager It caused a remarkable public spectacle. And that's when this all came tumbling out. Athens in the station's manager who has described as her boyfriend and in the documents as also her fiance. Got into an argument while driving in Anchorage. He made her get out of the car and told her she was barred from returning to the station. Athens, nevertheless went back to the television studio and attacked him physically. When the police finally arrived, she hit an officer trying to arrest her was placed in full restraints after she tried to kick out the back window of the police cruiser with her high heels. She's been arrested and charged with assault, criminal mischief, disorderly conduct. She was released from jail after posting bond. She has court dates in the future. So this poor story for this and I say this poor woman because obviously she's got issues, but it just goes from bad to worse. To worse, sir. Did you point out that the mayor resigned. He's resigning a midnight tonight. Okay? Yeah, he's decided that he's had enough. And I imagine there's a some splaining that's ah. Had to go on at the household since the tape became public. But I guess ah, lesson to be learned here is ah! I would. I would have any inappropriate texting sort of relationships if you're married and number two. I don't think it's good. If you're a station manager to date, one of the anchor woman, I don't think that's a good policy either. John, Would you like to add anything to this? I'm just wondering if this reporter has a future. In the business. Would somebody hire her? Well, you're sure you're better Cancel that question and me? I mean, she has national publicity. Now I will say that she certainly looks like an anchor. I mean, uh, She certainly looks like she What do anchors look like? Bankers, Okay. She looks like anchors should she looks like an anchorwoman. Sykes thinks attractive. I'm not saying that I don't see attractiveness anymore, John. No, I I just I see competence. And I see somebody that probably needs a time out. And maybe maybe needs to see somebody for a couple sessions here and there and get by her Her obvious anger, anger, anger, anger. Thank her anger, anger, anger? No, that's an angry anchor anchor anger there. It is a tough time to be in the business, John. It's a tough time. Everybody's worked up. That's why I keep calm. Carry on. But keep your head on a swivel and never, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever. Leave voicemails. Coming up next to go north of the Cheddar curtain to get the lay of the land.

But look, I think he was very smart to get you. I think a lot of people are talking about you and talked about you. Why are you writing love letters to the sky?

Conclusions were conclusions do not need drawn, attempting to push a Russian collusion hopes. That was, in fact, they hope, exaggerating evidence that wasn't there suggesting that big scandal was just around the corner and Shapiro were days to defy all of that stuff with bunch of craft, and I ripped the media for that daytime talk on 8 90 W.

I really do, and I don't carry anybody's water, and I listened to some guys in this business. They blaming either on Obama, Clinton or the media. And that's just a little too shallow for old jump street. Talk on the ride home with John Hell Show weekdays 5 to 7 on 8 90 W. L s Welcome. This is the men's Shapiro shows. So Joe Biden, not an alive person. Not alive, In fact, so not alive, that even members of the media beginning to ask why is Joe Biden not alive? So Brian Stelter over CNN? He had on one of the heads of Biden campaign was like, Why don't you have Joe Biden talk to the media more? It makes him seem like he's dead when he doesn't talk to the media. Here was even Brian Stelter, getting somewhat irritated with the Biden campaign for not making their candidate available. You know, Look what he said. Chris Wallace couple, although he said, Look let Biden said their interview like this, he'll be on the ground crying for Mommy. Now, of course Button did do an interview on MSNBC the next day, so the idea that Biden can't do an interview is a lie. That's a lie by Trump. He's going to keep lying is going to keep saying it for three more months. So why not prove him wrong every day by having daily press conferences and giving daily interviews, Okay, And the answer was we don't need to do that job, but we don't listen to Donald Trump. Okay, So here's the I love that. Brian Stelter can never say that. Trump says a thing without it. Also saying that Trump lied about it. It is not a lie that Joe Biden is not making himself wildly available to opposing press. I mean, it is true that Donald Trump sat down with a very oppositional Chris Wallace, we went through the interview is also true that Joe Biden has not taken a tough interview in probably four years. Now he's being urged like over and over and over by various members of the left wing press to never come out of the basement again. Not debate trump nothing. They just never come out of the basement for the rest of time. There. There. Bevy of headlines to this Viscount Joe Lockhart before Clinton press secretary over the weekend, said that Biden should not have a trump. Peter Lucas wrote an op ed recently saying Biden better walk the walk back any offers to Trump Just this week. Hendron Fear now wrote for Newsweek supporters. Air Joe Biden. Trump applaud host for canceling Overcovered 19 concerns More and more. Biden's people are telling him you don't have to debate Trump that listen. Is that smart? I mean, it probably is mean. The fact is that Joe Biden has nothing to lose by avoiding a debate with Trump, and he can't even sight Trump as a rationale for doing it. He can actually say to trump Trump did the same thing back during the 2016 primaries. And that's true during the 2016 primaries after the first debate with Megan Kelly, which he didn't like very much. There is a second rate schedule. Then Megan was one of the moderators and Biden and Trump just opted out. He held an event on behalf of veterans and he got big ratings and he didn't have to go. Biden is now apparently gonna attempt the same thing. I think I've been saying for a while. I think he would do this. Elizabeth Drew has a piece in The New York Times called Let's scrap the presidential debates. Become UN revealing equipped contest. Oh, is that weird? Because until five seconds ago until your girl Hillary got clocked by trump in the debates until that happened, you seem pretty okay with the inmates. He seemed okay when candy Crowley was jumping into the middle of a debate to smack Mitt Romney falsely and play fact checker on behalf of Barack Obama. That seemed like you were okay with debates. Then now, you just don't want to debate because it might be revealed The demand cannot string three sentences together like he's even been in the middle of cognitive decline since the middle of the primaries. If you watch him now, compared to even like, four months ago. It seems like he slipped a bit. This columnist was been through for The New York Times does nervous managers of the scheduled a 2020 presidential debates are shuffling at the logistics and locations to deal with the threat of Corona virus. But here's a better idea, scrub them altogether and not for health reasons. Debates have never made sense as a test for presidential leadership. In fact, one could argue their reward precisely the opposite of what we want in a president. When we were serious about the presidency, we wanted intelligence, thoughtfulness, knowledge, empathy and be sure likability. It should also go without saying dignity. Get the debates, playing outsized role in campaigns and weigh more heavily on the verdict, and they're true values deserve Perhaps the most substantive televised debate of all was the 1st 1 between John F. Kennedy and Richard Nixon, which Nixon was considered to have one on substance on the radio. Well, the cooler and more appealing Kennedy one on TV. Since these ones for debates, the concept of winning one of these on encounters was always amorphous..

Top 5 Moviegoing Experiences
"From Chicago. This is film Spotting Josh. Larsen and I met HIM DR. Get stuck on a movie line with a guy like this behind you a free country. You have to give it so loud to shame to pontificate like that. And and the funny part of it is. You don't know anything about McLuhan. We miss the movies so much. We even miss the Marshall McLuhan pontificators this week on the show. We mourn the current closure of movie theaters with our top five movie going experiences listeners. China into that more. That's funny because I happen to have Mr McLuhan right here ahead on film spot. Welcome to film spotting with Josh. I'm Adam and as we record this. Josh movie theaters are closed. They've been closed for a month or more and they'll continue to be closed for the foreseeable future which means this week's top five movie going. Experiences is either perfectly timed or it's the last thing people want to hear right now. Yeah could be either an act of morning or celebration curious Adam. Is this the longest you've gone sense? You started going to the movies when you were young Without being out of theater because I think it might be for me. Actually it has to be right. When would you ever be away from movies? Maybe when my first child was born but even then we'll get into this a little bit with our lists. I remember going to a Lotta movies when Holden was very young. That's what that was my thought too is. It must have been when we had a new baby but no because in both cases I was working as a fulltime film critic so I would have gotten back to work within a month for sure and Bannon a theater so yeah. This has been a long stretch. If you were anticipating are ghostbusters versus Gremlins throwdown. We have decided just to move that to next week. So if you didn't get those viewings in you have a little bit more time. That part of our eight from eighty four series. This was a top five that our producer Sam suggested in fact he's been suggesting it for many months. Maybe a couple years ago Josh annually. Yeah for some reason. We have always resisted it. We talk about our apprehensions a little bit. And now it's gone from the top five. We both vowed maybe never to do to a segment that I vowed to Sam would never be more than about twelve to fifteen minutes to an entire show. While let's just for the record that happens almost every time we do a top five where they'll say this is only going to be twelve minutes and it could be an entire show so that's nothing new But yeah resistance to this list. is is proven. There's historical basis for that but times have changed. It's a different time. Adam and get does call for this list before we get to that though we want to once again mention the Chicago Cinema Workers Fund and then also the art house America campaign. The arthouse America campaign is co sponsored by the criterion collection. And it's already raised over five hundred thousand dollars for independent cinemas across the country so again keeping this on the mind not being able to go to theaters like these independent cinemas and really worrying about their future. More information on both of these funds again. The Chicago Cinema Workers Fund and then the Art House America campaign will be in the notes for this show at film spotting dot net on twitter invited listeners to write or call in with the names of family and friends who are working on the front lines during this pandemic and we heard from a friend of the show. Kenny Meyer also longtime listener Tom Morris and they called in with some shoutouts. We WanNa make sure that Jamie and Jennifer gets them. Well deserved attention responding? Kannemeyer back and Pump does our California and Just wanted to call and response to the tweet about the front line workers. Doing Cook Nineteen You guys know my sister Jamie She works in respiratory therapist. Linda Hospital Big Hospital here in southern California and Is on the front lines as they say. But if you follow around letterbox. She's still finding lots time to keep up on movies. She's already seen blow the man down so she's one ahead of me right now so just shut my big sister Jamie Thanks for doing what you do. Keep up the hard work and thanks to everybody. Who's out there working on our behalf. I don't funny Adam. Josh Sam Levy Guys. Thanks for the show in a long time to get any feedback So all the ones happy holidays. Happy Fifteenth Anniversary. Thanks for the Bette Davis Marathon and I right talk to you soon. Hey signing this. Is Tom Morris of the good the bad and the nerdy movie podcast? I just wanted to call and give a shout out to a very special person. Says dear to me who is a front line worker. That would be my wife. Jennifer sheet is a unit secretary at a hospital in my area. Hers is actually a little more complicated jobs and she. You know if you hit if a patient hits the help button. She's the first person they speak to. She's the one that organized the handles all the assignments. She gets the nurses to to alert them. When something's going wrong. She is basically the person probably speaks the most of the patient with them ever realize it and I feel like that her and others in her position should get many shout outs is. They're the UNSUNG heroes. Just like you know editors are and so forth and film anyway Let's get all those healthcare workers fighting save everyone's suffering for a couple of nineteen. Thanks thank you Kenny. And Tom for your thoughtful voicemails and of course thank you. Jamie Jennifer for everything you're doing and our thanks as well to everyone out there working on the front lines. If you have a friend or family member you want to give a shout out to. You could drop us a line. Three one two two six four zero seven four four or send us an MP three file or an email feedback at film spotting dot net. We're going to get into our top five now. Josh movie going experiences with some poll results that you could argue completely contradict the spirit of the top five. We asked listeners to vote on their favorite type of movie going experiences. We came up with these four opening night full house for a comedy opening night full. House for an action movie or opening night full House for a horror movie. You could also go. I'm not into crowds weekday alone at my favorite art house. Finally if none of those fit the bill for you you could vote other and right in your choice. How did it come out Josh? This is incredibly revealing? I think Adam other is in last place with six percent and then packed pretty tightly together. Are the three communal options. So ten percent of the vote went to opening night horror movie eleven percent opening night comedy and eighteen percent opening night action movies so you see some differentiation. There among those options but easily winning this poll. We're Buncha loners in film. Spotty Nation Weekday alone at my favorite art house took it with fifty five percent of the vote. That's also how you and I voted. Yeah it is though in fairness we could say that instead of being a bunch of loners film spotting nation is actually just a bunch of snobs. And it's not so much the day of the week or going by yourself or with a group it's the type of movie and they just loved the art house fare donors. Snobs you say potato. Yeah exactly we heard from John Dempsey. Who said I voted alone slash art house though? It's really a tie of extremes for me the other being full house slash blockbuster the alone arthouse preferably daytime experience really put you in a trance. There's nothing quite like seeing for example. The APU trilogy at Film Forum than leaving the dark theater for the bright bustling streets of New York and wandering literally and in your mind with one foot still in the world of the film on the other hand. The communal anticipation in line. The urgency of getting a good seat and the roars of laughter and gasps during an opening weekend showing of say a fast and furious film. It's the type of shared energy. Most people search for music festivals or sports stadiums. I need both in this stem dearly. And I think that's the case I think even us and the people who voted the fifty five percent who said Weekday alone of the art house. We want both and we do crave both and we're going to reflect back on some of the best communal experiences that we've had going to the movies. Yeah that makes sense to me. My my vote in favour of being alone was not in opposition to those other options. Because I do love all of those other options as well. So that's fair. John Characterizes it. Well

John Dempsey over townhall dot com in this column where he says the Trump has freed the GOP from the media. He says the media has thrown everything they know at the president everything, but they have failed. There's nothing left. They've tried racism sexism, mental illness and many different lies that have resulted in journalists getting fired Trump has deflated the legacy media and expose their bias. Obama always got softball questions. They refused to challenge. His character, integrity or emotions. On the other hand, Trump is under constant criticism. Trump controls them through social media. Trump users Twitter is a means to control the media all the major news networks believe they control the news cycle. But in reality Trump, owns them. He controls them through social media. They're so obsessed with destroying him that any tweet gets blown out of proportion this guy John Dempsey points out in the end, the leftist news looks like they are the mentally ill. Once. And nobody says that to make fun of mental illness. But look at look at Rosie O'Donnell poor Rosie on MSNBC literally saying she wants the military to storm the White House and remove the president. I don't know if she was joking or not maybe she was maybe she wasn't who knows here's cut number twelve Pavlina last night. I yesterday on MSNBC Rosie O'Donnell reacting to Nicole Wallace pointing out that the President Bush President Trump has threatened to send our troops to the border. Listen to this exchange cut twelve from MSNBC and gravy. And so when he was elected what I wrote on Twitter was we should impose martial law till we make sure that the Russians weren't involved in the final tally of the vote Muller has indicted thirteen Russians for election, martial law. What's wrong with you? You're a lunatic. He wants to send the military to the border. So I want to send the military to the White House to get. You know, what's weird?

She wasn't joking now everybody on the panel thought she was and they laughed L broke out and laughing laughter. Eugene Robinson and Nicole Wallace. But she wasn't smiling laughing. She's sitting there shed a coffee Cup. And then she she's them laugh, not people laugh at you. And you don't know why they're laughing that was the reaction. Rosie O'Donnell had were they all started laughing at that. She she kind of looked around nervously with this weird nervous smile like, oh, they're laughing. Why are they laughing? I'm mean, it man after all she said, she was physically ill last night all of us on stage talked about where we were election night twenty 2016 you, of course, was over MSNBC trying to hide in the corner because they all hated him because you voted for Trump. Kaley mcenaney was over. And they all hated her. Because she's a Trump supporter. Sebastian Gorka was off in his, you know, his home somewhere in Virginia with his family. Rosie was just physically ill. Here's cut thirteen. Rosie O'Donnell talking about how physically sick she got. When President Trump. Well when Donald Trump became president. It was horrible. I was away by myself in Boston about the shoot a TV show. And I said to my therapist. Do you think it's wrong for me to go alone? It's election night. And what if he wins, and she said, you know, Rosie you've got to stop it. Always the negative tapes in your head. I went there, and I started I I actually got physically sick. Yeah. I got physically sick that night. And I thought to myself this cannot be happening because when he got the nomination I thought, well, we just gotta wait till election day. That's all I have to do is hold on till then. And then that he won, you know, it took me a good year to compose myself to be in public again, I took a year out of the spotlight. It took her a year to compose herself to appear in public. After he got elected. Again, I am not trying to mock listen. And I mean, this mental illness is real. It has affected people close to me. I am not trying to mock people with depression with anxiety with mood disorder with ADHD people who are bipolar and Rosie's talking about asking her therapist, if she's having a conversation with her therapist about what she should do because it's election night. And then she she she confirms on national TV show yesterday that she was basically in bed for a year. She couldn't go out for a year. It took her year to compose herself. I mean, a lot of us were really really disappointed when Barack Obama was elected president really disappointed when Bill Clinton was elected president. We've been real disappointed. Does she people like Maxine Waters? And others like her in positions of leadership in any way, shape or form. Nancy pelosi. Chuck schumer. If you ever hear me say, it's gonna take me a year to compose myself because of the outcome of an election and take a year to go out in public. Please. I pray for me.
