New antitrust legislation would check the power of tech giants

"Arguably the biggest problem with big tech. Is you know the bigness. A few giant companies gobble up their competition owned the digital advertising and web hosting markets control the information ecosystem and sometimes control the distribution of their own competition so far though these worries haven't led to regulation now democratic senator amy klobuchar who leads the senate subcommittee on antitrust introduced a bill intended to check the power of tech. Giant's it focuses mostly on acquisitions to prevent huge companies from buying potential competitors and it would force companies that control more fifty percent of a single market to prove that an acquisition would not reduce competition. Here's senator club shar. We all know that misinformation has been rampant on social media and it is greatly. Set us back. But there's another much more insidious problem and that is that any company that was starting to come and do cool things got bought and i think maybe you could look at this legislation as basically a reply to mark zuckerberg's email when he said about they're looking at what's happened instagram. These businesses are nascent but the networks established. The brands are already meaningful. And get this. And if they grow to a large scale they could be very disruptive to us. Google has ninety percent market share. Right now they are literally taking on a government of a major country in australia when the prime minister says hey we're gonna start making you guys pay for content and they say back. No you're not we're going to withdraw from your market and you'll have no search engine and a big part of this. It sounds like is funding these agencies right making sure that the ftc which is charged with a lot of this actually has some teeth exactly and of a numbers can't lie the ftc in nineteen eighty at one thousand seven hundred nineteen employees by twenty eighteen down to one thousand one hundred two. You cannot take on the biggest companies. The world has ever known trillion dollar companies with bandaids and duct tape. And that's why senator grassley has join me on a portion of this bill to up the fees on megamerger so we can put in over one hundred million dollars to each agency so they can actually do their job and this isn't just about tech. There's only to cat food. Companies that control most of the market. There's only two online travel agencies. You think you're getting all their choices. Go look at. Who owns them.

"john oliver" Discussed on Louder With Crowder

"It's been who cares All right John Oliver recent video here are segment. I don't know what you call it a show any more at this. Are they're paid people to laugh at it alerts. Does it count. On people getting mad about notorious ACP shirt. You stole that from the Tories RPG. coinate. It was. A second notorious RPG was the original prediction. Before Biggie Biggie. Cash like Amy Schumer getting mad that someone stole her bitchy stole from Ellen Generous. There you still feel stole. My Gosh I love it I think anything that pisses Democrats really fun for me right now. All right. So John Oliver been responding to the nomination from notorious. Nickname. It. and He tried to make these arguments that there are two situations. There are two factors that make this nomination just completely unfair, and this is an example with John. John Oliver can be very funny an example of John Oliver saying things. That are exactly the things that I have been saying only. I guess he doesn't understand them because he says something. Well, yeah exactly and then he thinks that makes his case when if you just let him say that fray and didn't let him follow up to justify case you would you'd immediately become a conservative so. Let me give you. I he says at this is unfair and his Clinton Mitch McConnell is determined to confirm judges and he goes to an example of the. This is the most substantial point that I could find in the video as to why it would be unfair to nominate ACP and McConnell's willingness to go to the Matha judicial appointments was perhaps never more obvious than join the cavanaugh earrings because immediately after Christine Blasi folds gut wrenching testimony because apparently had this conversation with the president both of them are testing each other a little bit where are you at on this? You know how strong are you and the connell basically says the president you don't worry about me I'm strong as Mule pissed that's his quote I'm strong as a mule piss. In other words he's. Not, GONNA give up he's not going to surrender. Wow, that is extraordinary because it's easy to forget that after Blasi testimony Kavanagh's confirmation felt a lot less certain and to react to what she said. We don't worry I'm strong as mule pace is both horrendous and deeply. Think. It's deeply awesome. Like when a politician speak straight from the HIP. Shing. Guys do going down to your old ebbets grill in the beltway swamp. But here we know what thing or two about moves pissed. Don't. Like the smell of Moose pissed like the stream of meal. Guy To excuse me. Very best probably something about electrolyte imbalance smells various. Yesterday said we felt as though Kavanagh's confirmation much we well, that's that's the point you were saying after Christine Blasi Ford we felt and the good thing is we found out that it was untrue for example, many people felt disgusted at the idea of cavenaugh being a gang rapist. Falls. It turned out. It was actual collusion shrine. Have this guy blocking his argument there is can you believe that McConnell was talking about? Moose pissed when this? Rate was going on it's amazing. extrordinary. Think people on the left. This is my question. Do you think they actually think that Kavanagh's a gang rape is still of course I think. So you think you believe I, really do I. Oh, come on. No, I'm serious I think pinpoint them all with a brush. But some of them I would say the people that were against are saying, no, he's still a rapist on the court I. Think that's they keep referring back to him. So that story is still true like we didn't find out. This was all false like they just. On that story it's remarkable was wasn't the Buzzer for thing that he liked grabbed her and then fell asleep something the. He tried to rape everybody, and then other people will like this me to quit like me too me too. Well, what happened when he ran a train on me with guys in aluminum body mass. How far can you count? He may have passed me a drink. Know and the only reason Oh my God the I'm sorta keeping a diary since the. Because it kept diarrhea like Doug for his. And there was enough evidence of the diary being verified and other instances from outside events and accounts who would have thought that he was saved by a diary exactly what you mean there wasn't a patron says ranch train on poor unsuspecting woman tonight while the fun had some beers after there wasn't like that injury. A serial killer Jeffrey. If I know people, some of have kept diaries at first off, I cannot verify that but I assume they only do it. So they can read back there crime. They weren't like eight eight smoked salmon. Today. Wasn't as good as last week. Might try a new place Tuesday. Guy's face and I was erect. Cabinet. We had a party to eight. I met a cheerleader. If I'm lucky, she may let me hold her hand. Omitted from all of this is gang serial gang rapists. So I don't know if John Oliver believes it but if he does and you can't trust anything, he says because he can't be bothered hiring a researcher because cova takes its toll on everybody does. As far as the precedents, the PRE president I think both would apply in this. The Senate didn't hold public confirmation hearings for the first one, hundred and twenty seven years this very new thing and again, the case could be made it. Yeah. You know what we thought hey, public hearing might be until you falsely accused a man of gang rape. The most. Yeah and You get your privileges taken away now no, no, no, no, no, no. No you didn't finish your dinner so you don't get your no no, no no. No you don't get any more public hearings when you fabricate stories of gang rate. The. Most boring straight-laced guy in the world king rapist. 'cause he likes beer. Overshot. Tell you know it's not true in like, Hey, are you a gang rapist? No, I'm not do you drink beer on Tuesday. I like beer. Booker..

The PODS Container Has Gone!

Young House Love Has A Podcast

The PODS Container Has Gone!

"Well we started last week's episode with our pods container just having gotten delivered and we started this week with it just having been picked up. Yeah it was a momentous thing to see it. Roll out be well. God's all the things I love yes it was a little bit more nerve racking than I expected it to be because we have used a pod before when we had our floors refinished and this house just downstairs so we had to move all the furniture and our first floor out of the House and we put it in a pod in the driveway. But you know that didn't have to go anywhere. It didn't get transported on a truck states away to new place to be dropped down. It just sat still rate. You know what I'm realizing right now. We have never not been with the stuff that we've moved ever in our whole lives. Yeah every other move. We've done up to this. Point has been basically a local move between places in Richmond apart from moving from New York here fourteen years ago but minivan van me and John Oliver Steph. It is the first time in a while that we've made an interstate move and so when we moved from our first house to our second house and then later to our current house. Our Third House here in Richmond like those are all within miles of each other and we did like just little trips like packing the car with stuff one day coming back the next afternoon like it was really easy. I think we took one truck for each move like we did. Use A u-haul rented truck for just like an afternoon like it was not a big deal right and that's how we also furnish the duplex and the beach us. We rented a U haul. Once put our stuff in it but we've always been like the driver of our things and it's not that I think we have any mistrust in pods driving. It itself is just a funny feeling to watch all of your possessions leave. You like going ahead of you and we are here and what. I have dubbed pod Purgatory. Because as we wait for the PIE to make its way to Florida over two weeks. We can't get there. The House isn't ready for US ANYWAY. And we wouldn't have any of her stuff so we just kind of hang out of the. House for two weeks wait for the pods to land and then in two weeks we do the journey. That pot is doing ahead of us. Yes our timeline. Right now is that we are hoping to make the move to Florida sometime. The first week of May because that's when the pod is scheduled to arrive there. That's when our contractor says. It should be ready for us to come move our stuff in and so that starting to feel like the week things are GonNa Happen. I'm knocking on all the wood because everything seems to be up in the air these days but I think that two week window is another thing. We didn't really wrap our heads around until recently because again having only done local moves before it's always been this kind of like a gradual process into the new house. Where if we forgot something at the old house we could like run back and get it. But that's not really an option here like we have to be much more organized and basically just have one shot at getting everything packed between the pod. That's going down and then we can fit in our car when we actually go down the first week of May. Yeah so what remains in our houses just like you know the linens on the beds that were still sleeping in because we did sell the beds to the new owners along with about fifty percent of our stuff because that house being less than half the size of this house means we certainly would be not smart debris one hundred percent of the seven this house because it would have nowhere to land in Florida. Yes there's a lot of stuff here. I mean I should point out. We're also fortunate that because we sold so much to the new owners that it's still fairly comfortable here while we wait out these two weeks before we can go because like Sherry said. We'VE GOT BEDS. We have a TV. We have a couch upstairs. Bonus Room so like apart from having the discomfort of like not having all of our kitchen stuff and not all of our close like. We basically packed a suitcase that we're living out for two weeks. Yeah but it's really not bad and then you know what the cool thing has been as we've shared this stuff. We're sharing a lot of stuff as we've gone in stories so if you ever want like real day to day stuff that's where to follow us but as we share it we've heard from so many people who've done these big moves even those who are you know in the military or who have done these like international moves to other countries and they have said it's fairly standard to be without your stuff for a while. Sometimes two weeks sometimes even four weeks and so a lot of people said. We do folding chairs. We do air mattresses. We do like basically camping as a way to make your food. You One pan and you have a hot pot and all this stuff. I think we really are lamping. We have four burner stove like this. House has all the appliances still. We have our beds but we do have fully empty rooms some pictures in the show notes of some rooms. This house vacant and some rooms like our entire dining room remains our entire bonus room still here except for one table that we took. Actually I think this week on the blog post a video tour our house in two stages so one will be how it looked when we sold it. So like right before the showings happened and everything was cleaned and in its perfect spot. We took video. I haven't watched it yet so hopefully it's good but that will give you a sense of what the house looked like at its finished state and then we're going to try to shoot a video this week of what it looks like now. That has been packed up. I think that will answer a lot of questions for people who are wondering. Like what exactly did you leave? What did you take so you'll be able to see the contrast between those two things so that should be on the blog this

Launching Patients over Profits

"Have some exciting stuff to talk about this week. Most exciting top of the list is that there's a new massive national medicare for all campaign that was launched just this last week Ourselves healthcare now part of a coalition That's going to roll out this campaign it's being led by national nurses United And it has called the patients over prophets pledge So Stephanie Before we get into the details like nuts and bolts of what this campaign is GonNa look like This is a campaign that is targeting. Legislators so they will not take money from the healthcare industry. Why is that important like at this particular stage movement right so as we expected as our movement is taking off there's momentum in Congress and at the grassroots level our opposition has taken noticed and they have organized? They've convened a new organization The Partnership for America's healthcare future may have heard of it which is comprised of bad guys like health insurers members of Pharma hospitals and everybody else who has something to lose shows of commerce single the most exactly So now we have this like mega villain. This transformer of multiple villains Who have have convened this new partnership and they are spending a lot of money. For example on ads on industry aligned speakers on ghost writing op eds for members of Congress and other legislators and employing lobbyists to spread their talking points Why don't we go ahead and listen to to a short clip of an ad? This is like a prime example of what they are running around. The country. Politicians are pushing one-size-fits-all health. Plans Medicare for all Medicare buy buy in in and and public public option. option. All All mean mean the the same same thing. thing. You'd You'd pay pay more more to to wait wait longer longer for for worse worse care. care. So they're doing stuff like this and of course they're also donating millions to our elected officials. So how are we going to take on this new mega opposition that has launched with the express purpose of taking down? Medicare for all So any new has come up with this patients over. Prophets pledge. Ben. Can you tell us a little more about it? Yeah so it's pretty straightforward basically We're going to be asking a legislators Elected officials but especially members of Congress to not accept money from any arm of the healthcare industry. That is part of the Partnership for America's healthcare future any wing of the healthcare industry. That is trying to undermine Medicare for all trying to prevent us from getting the healthcare. We need We want to drive a wedge between this partnership of this empire of evil. Who's trying to stop us from getting our health care and the legislators who were supposed to be representing us. I'll remind you just normal constituents patients so here's a little clip from Max Cotterell of National Nurses United on a national call that they hosted to launch this campaign. The patients over profits pledge is linked to aim to sever those direct ties that corporations actively involved in fighting Medicare for all have been carefully building with politicians across the country. And so in this fight to pass Medicare for all what we know is that will never be able to outspend the for profit industry but we can make the active accepting their campaign contributions politically toxic. Well put Max And you know I would say just a little bit beyond this that any elected official can sign this pledge. Whether that's mayors city councillors a state REP state senators. Any target is fair game but obviously the big boys are the ones in Congress who can actually Enact Medicare for all and who the partnership is just spending hundreds and hundreds of millions of dollars trying to weasel their way into their confidences and to get them to oppose this So now I'd like to say that US in the Medicare for all movement can take credit for this campaign design and the structure but actually we have an closely allied movement. Who's had a lot of success with this kind of Pledge Approach Stephanie? Do you want to say a little bit? More about sort of the roots of this tactic and the strategy sure so if this campaign sounds familiar it's because of the climate change momentum. 2017 launched a very similar pledge called the no fossil fuel money pledge after which the patients over prophets pledges kind of designed so the no fossil fuel money pledge prohibited. Siamese from accepting campaign contributions over two hundred dollars from executives political groups or lobbyists in the oil gas or coal industries. So what has been the impact of this? Almost all of the major candidates in the presidential race of sign the pledge although both Biden and budgets have come under fire for violations of of the pledge and over fifty members of Congress and both the Senate and House have signed as well and dozens of elected state and local levels as well I think you know when there was news about Biden holding a fundraiser with an investor in fossil fuels and Buddha judge also having close ties with some of these industry players that has been huge news. And it's really affected perceptions about their campaigns So what do you think? Ben What do you think is the potential of this campaign? Yeah well so first of all. I'm going to play a clip from An activist in the sunrise movement. Who has worked had been heavily involved in this no fossil fuel contributions campaign Talk about what he sees as the impacts and then. I'm going to say a little bit about how that sort of carries over to Medicare for all for us the no fossil fuel money. Pledge has been a tremendous tool for three reasons. I it's been a really good at organizing tool for building are organizing muscle second. It's helped us draw media attention to the corruption of fossil fuel money in politics and three. It's translated into concrete political games both in winning and losing elections as well as the impact inside the legislatures. Yes these are all some of the outcomes that I think we'll see also in the Medicare for all movement I see this pledge as a very versatile tactic right You can target existing legislators who support Medicare for all already. But you know maybe. Their level of commitment is not super strong Maybe we're a little worried that when it comes time to actually vote on this bill we might lose that legislator That they might get cold feet Is the time to try and get them to up their commitment level and to really pledge not to take money from these industries Which I think will more firmly. Secure them in our camp when it comes time to vote But you can also target if you have like a legislator who is so right wing that you don't think they're ever going to back. Medicare for all this is the way to publicly shamed them right and to start imposing political costs on them for making the wrong decision. So I think you can take You can apply this in all sorts of different targets And there's also been a lot of success recently getting candidates to pledge not to take PAC money for example. Obviously not all candidates have of of come up with this have agreed to this pledge but there's paralells of this tactic working in clean elections in anti fossil fuel movement and Clean Energy Movement And I think bringing this tactic to our woman is really going to strengthen us. Yeah I think the corporate pack pledge has been really useful for our movement. Because you know we've seen candidates who have taken the pledge return or refused donations from insurance and pharmaceutical companies but because it doesn't include individuals like you know the new patients over profit pledge does executives have been free to donate money as individuals to candidates. And that's a big issue too right because couple can actually give more than a Pat Ken so two people can give them more than a pack. They can give up to fifty six hundred dollars so marquis who is a co-sponsor of the Medicare for all bill. You know when you look up his campaign donations He has taken Donations actually Max out. Donations From health insurance executives and this pledge sort of encourages us as activists to take a closer look at the financing sources of our incumbent and our candidates. And say look this obviously violates the spirit of your co-sponsorship of Medicare for all a Bill. That would actually do away with these corporations. That are giving you money. You know in please stand with us and not the corporations. Yeah this is another clever way. That that Corporations impact elections sometimes with they won't have an official company. Pack that funnels money to a candidate. They'll like get all the executives in the company to bundle their money together essentially and send it to a certain candidate and then they're gonNA know who it's coming from but this pledge is designed to catch those people to But it is. It will not catch you. Know if some hapless low level employee of pharmaceutical company wants to support where? We're candidate they support. That's fine. We're not going after those contributions so Stephanie. If folks Who listening want to get involved with this campaign One help US pressure. They're elected to take this pledge. How do they do it? How they get involved in. What is it like? Would you have to do to to actually carry this out? Sure if you're listening to this right now you actually can participate in this campaign because every single district there is not been a single signer in Congress of this pledge yet so everybody everybody has somebody to work on totally brand new. So there's going to be a week of Action April six to the tenth Before that we'll be doing canvases to ask people to demand that their representative take this pledge and so we're going to be collecting signatures before that and then we're going to be gathering them together and we're going to have a drop off date sometime in April and both healthcare now and then you have resources to help you organize and recruit for this. You know if you want to. If you want to take the lead in organizing in your area you can do that. If you don't want to take the lead and you just WANNA show up to an event you can also do that so If you want to get involved just send us an email And we will help connect you to this

John Oliver is he's been coming our show for eight years now live to tell the tale he talks about how is love of football in general and never pull in particular and after say a never take it for granted watching John Success What Jim saw. Aw and the star. which does it gives me enormous pleasure? Going to be honest. I preferred him back in the Roy. Hodgson days at time so darker is a first time he came on. I think he said I've given up expecting all needing to win the league. I don't need Liverpool top four finishes just just needs pausing sequences fifty minutes coveting the ball. He's not too much to ask in. Came European club and John Adjusted he recalibrated a little bit and he said Geneva back for when you have a front fifty before declaring the joy at the front and the pain in the back is how little gives you the full human experience. Last year junk been happier. He was in love with big verge verge Human Kyushu Kerry but he was also resigned to the fact that there's good Liverpool were they forever. In his words be a greyhound chasing chasing a hat that had been pep guardiola seemingly invincible Manchester City. And then I remember I think he continued by saying Everton attend. which is the hamster running round in a ring in the corner of a clause view of several children harsh? What difference they were you makes? John appeared and buy a pair. I mean start on annual boxing day special on NBC and while I admit his visit was a reminder of the extent to which joined Liverpool not win the title as possibly one of my greatest pleasures over the past two years as an Teigen. Not a good look for me. The Ark of the human experience of his fandom from the wrong said the periphery towards the knee glorious light. It was a human when the to retrace reliving that journey one of the highlights of my we'll touch for all you non Liverpool fans on the big stories of the Premier League Year Bridges Brought Ge's less the glory Christian Pulisic belonged all marina who's hailed.

I'm Greg having the holidays. It's become a tradition. Unlike like any other you all to us Alec Baldwin is to US and Elgin. That's horrible things to say on law. We mean that you you also have four brothers. All of whom are named billy ways of joy to see you and talk about Liverpool Football Club. I will say John the Better Liverpool Gang. The less of a joy. It failed failed January two thousand. Thirteen little under Brendan Rodgers for me. One of the greatest livable managers of all time behind only Roy Hodgson might technically objective ranking and in John. You said the chief go little happiness now has got so much smaller hopefully years. I don't need trophies. I don't need hopeful and the need some noise politics sequences got too much to ask. We sit here at a historic moment. Your team livable running being away at the top of the table. The secret works will this to happen. We're GONNA break down. Every element of the Liverpool season season so far with yearly on all of bring every storyline that starts at the beginning back on August ninth.

Alfonso Gmez-Rejn Plugs Into The Right 'Current'

"Today's show Kenny and Cartman in the South Park kid It's are in the middle of a big bidding war then Alfonso Gomez Ray homes movie the current war went into limbo because of Harvey Weinstein's troubles but the director let it go I couldn't stop because it wasn't hadn't been ripped away from yet and is more Aziz right wing nationalism turning off a large part of his fan base all that coming up on the frame Bloomberg's Lucas Shaw is reporting on a potential landmark deal for the lucrative streaming rights to a long running animated series before we hear from Lucas here's a clip from the show that we're going to talk about that got it banned in China here's the character that is fair to say represents the Walt Disney Company you are fat diabetic bear and if the Chinese don't watch you then I don't either now as Mr Marsh that's me randy marsh who is I don't know you are you from Pixar from South Park what South Park do I all not no not yet not yet and probably not soon that as South Park it just launched its twenty third season all old episodes of the series have lived on Hulu for the past couple of years but now the show's owner comedy central is looking for a new home Lucas who's chasing it and what kind of numbers are we talking about they are training get about five hundred million dollars or as much as five hundred million dollars for a four or five year deal and have have half a dozen companies bidding on those right they hope to get a deal done by the end of the year and I would expect you to get announced well before okay I gotta stop half a billion dollars for a couple of years for South Park we've seen deals for friends for the office what is happening here because that money seems crazy you mentioned into the office Big Bang theory has gotten a big deal Seinfeld got a big deal the money for South Park is in the Ballpark of those the thing to keep in mind to south park has more episode than any of those so that both inflate the overall package but the price that has been paid per episode decided think about it is actually a bit smaller than the other ones but what's happening is you've got this this race to build all these new streaming services you have comcast at and T. Apple and Disney all creating new services all meeting properties that people will want to watch in between those originals and the case of South Park it's one that has been very popular on Hulu and has a passionate passionate audience I think a lot of people are figuring if you go out and you license South Park not only is that GonNa bring in some customers which is weird for reruns be of more than three hundred episodes for people to watch at any time they're very watchable we're talking Luca Shaw at Bloomberg about the potential big deal for South Park does this fall into the whole idea of kind of a loss leader because there is such an arms race for content right now Netflix earlier this week borrowed another two billion dollars and has more than thirteen billion dollars in debt they're spending a lot to create an acquire content when you're thinking about a show like South Park what is the appeal of it does it bring people in who might not subsist arrive does it make those people happy wherever it ends up what is the benefit for a streaming service if you're maybe actually GONNA lose money on the deal I think it's a bit of both I think for most of these reruns especially for shows like friends in the office you're not bringing in new customers with those programs nobody is subscribing to each Max v because they're friends just like nobody subscribed to Netflix because it had friends but they're really good for retention and keeping people there in the case of South Park again so many episodes it just is a lot for people to watch so let's say for example Hbo Max five the Rights That means that for review or maybe inbetween washing succession and watchmen they might binge watch a few episodes of South Park and then a Lotta this in in my opinion is just defensive what you've got is these companies I've seen net flicks build a massive audience with their properties and with big old TV shows and movies that they had seen as not as valuable and even though net flicks is now not renewing its deals for a lot of them they just they can't stomach the thought of seeing that vacuum up these properties and continue to build an audience they want to go out and get some of these big names get a lot of headlines and show that they're in the game and so I think you're seeing prices for all these things go way up in large part because these companies have to atone and make up for years of bad dealmaking with Netflix I'm wondering about branding because if you look at Zinni plus they have I think five distinct brands it's Disney Pixar Marvel Lucas and nat go they're probably not that interested in south park giving what the creators have said about their own company but are there certain shows that fit into certain models in terms of what the content is better than others yeah I can look every service is working to define what their proposition is to consumer you know you mentioned Disney plus one hundred percent right that is not a place for park but Hulu which is also owned by Disney is where South Park has been and does a little bit more into that brand offering HBO Max makes a lot of sense shows from HBO which are obviously you know John Oliver has no problem thumbing his nose at his new corporate parents that at and T. You could see south park fitting there does South Park's bid that's something like peacock which is the service coming from comcast that's hard to know because we don't really know what the identity is of comcast South Park feels like a stretch thing like apple I could be wrong maybe apple go in and buy it but apple has thus far not bid on a Lotta Library shows and apple similar to Disney is very sensitive of its end image and I'm wanting to be relatively family friendly apple also has a huge business in China so the fact that South Park has just offended the Chinese government make the topic proposition and let me ask you this one last question South Park even though it's not at the top of the ratings has been incredibly popular for comedy central does that mean that that audience could be equally big on a streaming service I think it could especially because South Park core audience is a young man I was speaking with the former Viacom executive earlier this week and we asked him have how big South Park was for comedy central and they said that South Park was the most important show on that network it was not only the most popular one for many years it might even still be now but it was the one that sort of fed into the other programming because it spoke to that core group and frankly young men are the customers that have been most likely to sign up for streaming services early there what the industry thinks of its early adopters and so if you've got a new service and you've got South Park near betting going to probably help them in getting some of the young men in the door

up our sleeves and get in there at eight this is a this is the only one hey we know how to make this without getting into trouble right that's the problem right we're taking so many legal swings feels like if we get one wrong it's all over it'll be a death by culp situation so that's satirist step out of the car satirist with the that's right Keanae take on what's off kilter in American culture step out of the car and get on you can see them yeah he's got a quip he's got a quip Bandini these reaching for a reference I swear when I shot him he had a reference Yeah I very much agree that you're able to do what you do because TV changed and it is now possible and you've you've proven this that by limiting the number of shows you do a you know you've had a great impact on our culture and you've been a terrific addition and inspiration to a Lotta people and you're you're not overdoing it you're not making too many king as many as you can do really that's the key yeah we're at the maximum number that we can to whilst doing a show like this we could do more shows but they couldn't all be like this I want them to be like this because they're all like miniature obsessions that yeah does it ever feel overwhelming or do you ever have these sort of moments of despair where you think do I keep going forever and what happens some definitely aware of it's all consuming by choice right so I'm aware of how lucky I am to be able this completely to one thing and obsess over it how sustainable that he's really long term I don't know I watched John Stewart closely tools the end where he was getting tired to his bones right and so I remember thinking I don't WanNa be this time at the end so so it it's hard to say is the how does this end probably as a real luxury problem with that sense of running downhill thinking when it feels like there's system that is taking over from yes what your own body terrible explanation dreadful that doesn't I'm not even sure that kind of weird and motion with your fingers like a rolling scratch that is basically Journo we're GONNA WE'RE GONNA WE'RE GONNA run a loop yes I don't I don't know probably really honest answer that yeah no you don't think you're meant to know how what about you I came to the conclusion Asian that I'm a different person as I get older I'm not I I used to say you could probably shoot me through the heart before a show and still go out and do that show I crazed kind of I was on some mission to do something and I think I've mellowed I don't know what the correct word is I have more perspective now I still like to make things but I for example if you had someone told me two years ago that one of the great joys of my career would be in a sense doing eighty oh show on the side with people I admire have said really after the TV show and I would even yeah you just do the work and then later on its get sorted out by somebody or it doesn't none of it matters yeah I think there's also for me they'll be the moments of intense joy lucky if they still feel like utterly joyous that feels like pit shop still has its capacity to surprise yes give me like intense pleasure I think if I'm ever standing next to a six hundred square foot cake and feel nothing probably time to stop right or just switch to a different yeah that's true pie that's different yeah that's a different joke a massive Claire I mean what I'm saying is it's funny because I know that you're a python fanatic and You you are a Cambridge footlights yes person which always thought is just a legendary where they got started not all of them not all of them but but yeah a few of them and yeah so I started what college at there's myself in rigid wate we were in the same in he's now a writer and director and comedian And Yeah it was

We were backstage at a benefit once yes and mm-hmm I think I tried to be friendly to l. never forget what you said you said I have surpassed you in every way this is a quote I said Oh hey John I'm a big admire and you cut me off and you said I have surpassed you in every way a creatively and as a man and we will speak no further that's we're on two escalators yours go down yes yes you're headed up to the lingerie floor and I'm plunging down and my escalator is moving very quickly down and yours regally rising slowly but surely yeah yeah and so I'll never forget that you were right of course right I didn't think it was right to say that you're sometimes sometimes things are better left just festering I do love that I'm just going to point this out that whenever I have an exchange it's like this and we both just commit to it there's going to be someone who's GonNa come up to me somewhere you know like when I go to the gun store to get my guns cleaned there's someone who's GonNa come up to me and say fucking John Oliver said that you believe it and then I'm GonNa have to double down say yes he's an awful awful man okay well that's a deal then then when people come up to me and say accomplished you said that the colon also I compensate allowed that's my only regret we all no it's true we have something in common which is when I met you for the I saw you for the first time you were much taller than I expected and I don't know if this is your experience I'm assuming it is I must come across on TV as a little fellow because my entire life has been when people in utter shock when they meet any than I am six four utter shock and then they get into I mean on TV years such a little little man so small real-time think so little of you as a person I know it's the same conversation every time ah I think emotionally I feel foot to maybe that projects through a screen because you're always behind a desk yeah and you have all these great comedy moves where you hunch over the ask your postures terrible posture is so bad this is true they have basically we've been going for six years now they've been trying to fix my suits for six years news because right up at the back because a hunch there is no way to make a suit lie elegantly upon my frame because I'm to kind of stabby uh-huh yes well first of all that's why I'm here I noticed it I know your show does very well but it could do so much better if I was just looser of shoulder well I think first of all you need some kind of a truss you know something with whalebone that pushes you into an erect position tailbone in it I'm already on board both have the same fetish of wild suffering that I may need I love the idea that they as they're killing whales they tell them what they're going to be used for so that even though we don't have any evidence that the whale is sentient about we sentient but there that they don't understand our language but as we're stabbing them yes in the Sea of Japan were yelling at them this is for a corset that will help comedian John Oliver Sit Upright yes he does comedy and that's the last thing the whale here's I would love would love people to be whispering into area this is not a medicine left the closet this is haunted will be unappreciated. Yeah that's let's try and get that out there that message out there that when animals are killed it explain to them that this is not for a good purpose like this it's not even a luxury killing this is right this is literally pointless you're marrow is going to be compressed and turned into the material that's used for plastic coat hanger at a dry cleaner you'll supposed- you too this week right yes of course yeah as always listen if anyone can take a joke it's those people it's just lovely sense of humor pita shoutout Peter no but I'm delighted to get to to meet you you've had really an certain amount of success success and I choked on that word success it's frightening because I bitterly resent you you've now one how many emmys arose Oh and it's ridiculous it's objectively ridiculous it's indefensible so I'm going to try and defend yeah I think you've had like four or five or someone in the room hold up a hand how many years in a row okay four let me tell you after two they're all sarcastic wins okay does it help to know that it definitely feels that way they're doing it to sort of knock you that's in America that's a tradition after two everything is just oh yeah and use your Ami one against you think you deserve this effect you should you should please just being openly contemptuous as you accept them just leave them on the stage and then have the stage manager bringing Tim Gullikson and now you can just keep them with so many British people winning this year and these people are not the best people to give awards to down there is not consistent solid happiness core of our souls is that true I think it's pretty I mean that's a generalization but also yes it's emphatically true just because you lost the empire the echo of that all of it we still got Bermuda and spoken donors put up a fight but we held onto them yes you did you slap you slap them around they won't be we wanted those shake we're willing to sink a ship Gogo helpless Russia the rumor is you get accidentally authorship the sink a ship accidentally but we did this now but is that true I mean don't tell me that phoebe waller just silly bridge maybe while Abridge who is we're all deeply in love with her she's incredible I think you feel silly don't tell me she feels badly about herself at her core I would be profoundly disappointed you didn't yeah that occasion in particular it's so quintessentially American yummies yes so silly and opulent that you kind of feel physics so you have no business being there right both in terms of where you come from also literally your body you look you look at these people kind of floating through the air and there is a troll Esq quality of turned mrs fields meals really discombobulating being there at all and being on stage I kind of just always wanted to get off as quickly as possible yeah well that's the healthy response it's is it it doesn't feel healthy no what is healthy it's healthy too deeply distrust any kind of show business gathering and I'm I'm actually being serious here I think that healthy responses to find it I find gatherings like that where giving out where people were giving out awards I realized I'm on my guard is I think yeah this is this is a setup for great unhappiness definitely anyone who's in that room is in the one percent of the one percent of the one percent in terms of their common the dream rather ridiculous obviously just went out to the audience that listening right now that John has a tattoo on his hand that says four and do now that's different that's different and clearly you've crossed out one is three Emmys I had weirdly I had the strangest experience with an award just a few weeks ago I got a call from the British consulate here in New York I've noticed and the British consulates they wish you to return the call immediately which sounds like a wartime yes telegraph yeah please stop call stop and they is this very a guy so so with such clipped Britishness to him it was it was genuinely offensive this is yes you who was doing a parody exactly it was going to say that's majesty most he said would you can obt would you like to read like you which is the that's the owners lists isn't that what the metal the they get an ibm the Beatles got in sixty five opiate yeah yeah and then it goes.

"Welcome to warriors. chemo tell them Beverly Hills we discussed a wide range of issues from his troubles and Phoenix to the perception that he's a malcontent was early success with golden date we start our conversation by talking about his new fan. HBO's John Oliver who spoke passionately about Chris during his comments about rockets team darrow more is controversial tweet backing Hong Kong protesters we'll have our conversation right after the break this week on not your century the founding of the Black Panthers the shooting of Marcus Garvey the Million Man March and two days of memories from the nineteen eighty nine Loma Prieta earthquakes not your century it's like history class but five minutes long and fun wherever you get your podcasts do you want to be angry at him Freud white powerful with Marquees Chris is part of a three team deal with the kings and the cavaliers back in February Christmas six ten with a seven weeks plays why above the rim and can mix it up in the Post yes grown team he's had his issues on the psalms not denying that but he's the exact type of athletic big man could've balanced out west brokenhearted especially when he's coming off the bench for PJ took what I'm saying Darrell tweets about selling nothing to apologize for there but when it comes to Maki's Chris you're fucked up the mid season Rawson loose I thought it was funny man on this I appreciate what he said about me the side from what he said about Darrow adversaries to support that he gave me you know there's not a lot of people who are willing to just go out of their way to say they don't know I've never met that man I've never spoken to him and you know he said positive things about me and I'm grateful for that you know he obviously said some things about so that you know I I wouldn't say personally and I wouldn't valid for those words those are the words that he chose to say not like a film appreciative I as bad as it is funny to see that here what he had to say was that your first time seeing it I'm very solid I really I can repeat it or posted on you had to say I found it was his steve or just coaches that played in and a film room before we watched one thing that is kind of interesting about the warriors is every year they have an example of a guy who maybe didn't get a ton of interest in free agency or whatever and ends up having an important role in the team last The Kenny Clarke there's a bunch of other examples years pass do you think that says something about the warriors that they're kind of open to you know maybe other teams that are over guy but they they're willing to see that potential I mean I think it shows and that's why wins they're willing to develop their players know obviously I've been in situations where I was just saying willingness wasn't there you know I think that they're they're there to give people chances and they understand that it takes time and you know in their system is art pick up so they around you and put you in position to succeed I'm thankful to them for giving me an opportunity obviously you've been on a few teams now how how is the environment with the warriors different way different man positively all around you know even when things aren't going as well you know nobody's pointing fingers and you know again frustrated I it's I was probably the most family oriented team been on and you know I said it shows that win and they continue to Lennon always competitor every year Phoenix was kind of an interesting situation because obviously you had some early success there I remember a couple of games we had against lawyers who are all rookie team is seemed like everything was trending in the right direction finance I mean they will be better I as I don't you caught me off guard hours I was at the facility analysis on that I got traded and didn't didn't hear from them until the next day so a main is a business today they felt that they they would be going in a better direction moving on from me and you know that's their decision did you did they give any explanation for why turned into you do not in I didn't ask me Glenn but like I said I'm thankful that they made the decision that they made because gone Houston I thought it was a great fit you know they they otherwise they addition Mayor Islands of Cleveland gave me an opportunity to show a low something before free agency did did that kind of wear on your mood at all does like when you're not join the game as much to that kind of affect other aspects of your life since you know I mean I'd be lying if I said it did it but I'm the type of person I don't I don't take things beyond basketball you know what I mean like I at the end of the day it is a game I mean and I'm never going to let it affect the way that I treat myself my family or my loved one so it will bother me but I would never let it it it bothered me where I would hourly show I I'm I'm the type of person I keep things to myself and I handled things internally before go ask people to fix my problem when they have in the League for a while now is the power of narrative thing once once a narrative gets out there guy fair or not it's hard to shake that can really affect your ability to get jobs and and obviously for whatever reason the narrative out there that you were petulant or immature and talking to Steve Talking to people in the organization they don't see that at all they say that you're very quotable and they give you they love your passing ability and all these things where do you how did you handle that knowing that you know maybe it got a little bit blown out of proportion and and that that effective here in your body to get up in I mean obviously they they start somewhere I mean it's not like it's not like it it wasn't true at first you know and things like that and I I wasn't immaturity knowing it would be lying if they said that that the nineteen year olds of India aren't I drafted and I was still eighteen I'm turned nineteen so some really so he's listening to that ask for me and obviously I've grown up I've learned but you know there's always going to be a scapegoat for for bigger problems and I felt that I would point I was that scapegoat in you know they they got rid of problems still stood so that is this kind of the thing that I just had to live with was somebody has to get blamed for it and you know they cleaned house and you know stuck with me knows something that that I've I've tried to you know prove the people and so people that it's not really who I am you know group will say that I'm disrespectful you know I don't shit and things like that but I've never been told that that's true now I'm a competitive person then I'll miss sometimes the best yeah but I'm never disrespectful person I I respect authority hours Begbie who you know who are above me in a bluer blow me too I don't outwardly shy to disrespect anybody or belittle anyone and that's not how as raise so I've never been that way people say what they see and they they see it I'm an hourly express the type of person on a basketball glory may they take that and make that my personality when I'm a quiet person people myself I like the lab how how tough of a transition was it to the NBA is eighteen years old and D- making millions of dollars you're gonNA differences eighty admission you had mentioned yesterday that you know time early in your career that

"Welcome to the frame emme special from KPCC in Los Angeles. I'm John Horn the host of the frame and I'm Lorraine Ali television critic for the La Times Save. We'll hear from a lot of nominees. It's about their work and their shows and we'll talk about. Emmys can tell us about the state of television right now. which is a really really interesting state? Yeah and one thing I want to talk about is he is late night. Talk shows I mean I know. We think that that's a place to go for humor and some jokes. I'm finding some of the best documentary reporting on television right now is happening on shows like John Oliver Samantha B so we'll cover that I am really looking forward to the limited series category this year because it is dumbass about stuff that has been on television talking about Chernobyl when they see us Fussy verdon escaping down more these are excellent shows and the limited series category used to be kind of like now. It's like that is the place that we're looking at it. I'm looking forward to see what happens with that but we're going to start with a comedy series and that Atas veep its lead actress could make some Emmy History Julia Louis and the emmy goes to even Julia Louis Dreyfuss. Let me try to annoy drivers now for most emmys one by performer and the same the same series peaches came back for its final season. There is another big final season it rhymes with game of thrones it is getting thrown and so on but before veep wrapped up its final season. I had a chance to speak with Julia Louis Dreyfuss. There's a lot of grief around the end of a series assuming the series has been a a good thing and a happy thing which in our case it has been and that has an incredible bitter sweetness to it that can really got you and it did. Let's talk about the final season running for President and she is asked a basic question of very early in the season which is why and other people are curious but here's a conversation. I bet she has with Gary who's played by Tony Hill because it is my God is was the game changer. I took bombed the glass ceiling. I shave my in the sink of the Old Boys Club for three years. He kept me chained to a radiator some basement in Cleveland. So as far as I'm concerned America owes me an eight year stay in the White House at this time. I want a war yeah. What is it like listening to that. It's gobs of fun. I think that's so well written so I was just sort of listening to the language you you know she's not a great candidate. That's not under state but I appreciate her her bitterness and her struggle when you are playing her. You'll have some way of saying okay. I know that this is a character and and I know that what she wants is not something that she's able to express but that's the actor plane her. I have to believe what it is. She wants here's how I would answer that. She's he's a very horrible human being and hideously behaved and really has no leadership skills whatsoever or no point view even other than her own narcissistic endeavor but when you player you have to come at it from well bill why and once you start to humanize that horrible nece you can find a way in to play it with a certain amount of well in a weird way. I say empathy and even though I'm not necessarily asking the viewer to be empathetic. I just want the viewer to laugh off but it just perhaps that keeps her from being hated by the audience right. What are the greater kinds of compliments. You can get from people who work in politics. I I hear time and time again. This is what it's really like in Washington and you know. I- winces I say that too but yeah that's that's what we hear. I had the great good fortune into meet Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan once and she told me that she got together with Justice Scalia. When veep was on on the air every week to discuss the past week's episode because there were both fans imagine that are can't? I know I would do anything thing to have those conversations. Let's hope somebody recorded them. I know maybe the FBI

Sacklers, Perdue Pharma, propose $10-12 billion opioid settlement that makes OxyContin firm a public trust

"Green in our country's opioid crisis the effort to hold drug makers accountable really seems to be intensifying earlier this week a judge in Oklahoma accused Johnson and Johnson of using dangerous marketing campaigns in order the company to pay close to six hundred million dollars to address the crisis the company's appealing there now settlement talks are under way with Purdue pharma the maker of the prescription painkiller oxycontin Purdue is facing billions of dollars in potential liability Brian man with north country public radio he covers opioid litigation force NPR hi there Brian hi David so what is happening with the settlement talks now with form it's a pretty fun has confirmed to NPR David did these global settlement talks are under way just a little context to the company and its owners the soccer family have already reached settlements at various times over the years with the individual states and with the justice department worth hundreds of millions of dollars but this would be different of much larger scale settling a couple thousand different lawsuits and according to some reports it might amount to as much as ten to twelve billion dollars is NBC news first reported it could also mean the Sackler family giving up ownership of Purdue pharma possibly through some kind of bankruptcy proceeding details are still thing here the judge in this federal case who's overseeing all this Dan pollster in Ohio has issued a strict confidentiality order so a lot of the players involved in these talks have declined to speak with NPR well let's talk about though this video that seems to be becoming more important for the first time yesterday you had pro publica and stat news these to news organizations following the crisis they released video of Richard sack or one of the owners of Purdue pharma talking about the company's role in the epidemic and and the videos and talked about a lot John Oliver did a long piece about it on his comedy show on HBO and Purdue is fighting so hard to keep this a secret why what is on this tape yeah this was recorded for years ago David was a deposition Richard soccer game with lawyers in Kentucky one of the states where produ is being sued and and at the time Richard soccer was still denying that his company did anything wrong he says over and over that produce aggressive marketing of these highly addictive pain medications like oxycontin was appropriate that's his claim and and money comes up he was asked how much money the company and his family earned from these opioid sales how much money has produced Frederick offered in farm made off the sale of oxycontin I don't know do you know how much the Sackler family has made off the cell of oxycontin but fair to say it's over a billion dollars it would be for our server yes do you know if it's over ten billion dollars I don't think so you know what over five billion dollars I don't know well it's a richer second of video talking about produce opioid profits measured in the billions of of dollars Brian I mean if this settlement happens what is the decision of the Sackler family I mean that they might have to give up control of their family business here that's right in the last two years of course have been devastating for the country in terms of opioid deaths roughly a quarter million Americans dead now from prescription opioid overdoses and it continues dozens of people dying every day and a lot of the terrible publicity tied to this public health crisis has landed right in front of this company and in front of the Sackler families remember they were once among the most respected philanthropists in the world and now their names are being stripped from art institutions devastating exposes have been written about them so this would end that bleeding for the family I will say David that not everyone will be happy with an agreement like this because it could mean a lot of the details of their activities being kept secret going forward Brian man with north country public radio he covers opioid litigation force NPR thanks as

"That AJ styles might not have referenced Randy Orton failing drug tests, you know, fifteen years ago, if w didn't want to let people know, yeah, we test are a wrestlers for drugs and have for a very long time. I don't know that they would have done that in one of that message out there if it weren't for that pesky comedian John Oliver in HBO crew, re bringing up a lot of issues that WWE hasn't done a large public forum had to deal with for for a number of years. You know, we'll never know problem. Well and less on writer discipline cash on day budge. I the same thought did cross my mind when he said that and I mean again, no way of knowing for sure. But the timing certainly is interesting. Yeah. So the John Oliver tonight special. I ran a poll. On on the app POW torch Twitter account asking if people thought the story if they saw it, you know, to honor system here. But if they saw did you think it was fair or unfair? And I didn't know what to expect, but the total now with three hundred forty votes in is twenty seven percent thought it was somewhat unfair totally unfair and the rest math quiz. Jason twenty-seven percent. No, I'm kidding. And then the rest say which is seventy three percent say that it was almost totally fair really fair. I I like kind of in the middle on it. And I want to talk to you about that a little bit for those who didn't see it last week tonight with John Oliver on HBO Sunday night did a story that ultimately focused on WWE's treatment of wrestlers and whether they're doing enough. In have been doing enough. And if wrestlers have paid a price for WWE not doing enough, and they used some quotes, including a twenty one year old quote from Bret Hart back in one thousand nine hundred eight they took excerpts of contracts. Other things wrestlers have said talked about wrestler deaths, including the recent King Kong Bundy death and called out WWE for classifying wrestlers as independent contractors rather than employees with the argument being if they were employs at a better representation that could they would be treated better. They would have more of a say so. What what did you think watching it? I thought some things were funny some were kind of cliche and disappointing as far as the attempts at humor. But what did you think in terms of that fairness question, are you with the the the nearly three fourths who think it was fair or with the just over one four through thought it was somewhat or not not fair at all. I mean. A tough one to answer because. Yeah, there were aspects of it that seem a little unfair from timing perspective things have improved, but you don't get to completely run from your past either. And that's the thing. I like the people who have defended WWE on this just feel like because they were pointing like they're just they want to ignore the fact that they raised very good points about datum points at you. And I and many others have raised about the independent contractor status and things of that nature. So I mean, I think from an entertainment perspective.
