Newt Minow on the Presidential Debates
"Hi everybody I'm John Donvan and this is intelligence squared US part of our discourse disruptor series and what we're going to be focusing on. Our the coming presidential debates they are coming sort of starting September twenty-ninth, the first of three. And of course, because everything's different this year, the debates are going to feel different almost certainly going to be. In some fashion remote, maybe the debaters, the candidates won't even be in the same place. There's only going to be one moderator. We're not gonNA live audience because you can't have that many people in one space in this dangerous time. Also what we have going on as a conversation simultaneously with which is focused on, maybe we shouldn't have debates maybe it's time to wrap up that whole institution and go back to a time of no debates. And when I say go back did you know that for most of American history this institution that we know is the debates did not exist that for most of our history, there were no debates and did you know that once we started having debates that in the first series, there was a remote debate the candidates were not in the same place and there was no live audience. And there was only one moderator. So maybe things are circling back. There's a lot of history here and we are interested in that because. At intelligence squared, we are very interested in history and we are also very very interested in debates. So that's what we want to focus on and we want to focus. In this case of discourse disrupters with an excellent source of information about the past and the present and potentially the future, and that is a gentleman named Newton Minot and Newton Minnow is an old friend of intelligence squared us and he's also known as the father of American presidential debates and we'll talk a little bit about why that is. But first, let's bring Newt Minnow into the conversation newt. Thank you so much for for joining us. It's really a pleasure to be back in communication with you. John I. LOOK FORWARD TO I. Admire your work or the intelligence squared very very much. Well, thank you. Can I ask before we start everything else I find it interesting that for folks who don't know you have lived through some very, very disruptive times and this one in your nineties a comes at the after a long series of other adventures. I mean, you have lived through I, think twenty three presidential elections. At this point, you have seen twelve cycles of the debates that we're GONNA be talking about. You lived through the major disruption called World War to. Use served overseas you went into politics You're an aide to ally Stevenson who ran for president does the Democratic nominee twice in the nineteen fifties. So you saw two elections then you joined John Kennedy's administration and you saw the trauma of his assassination and then you were very close friends with Robert Kennedy and you saw his assassination and lived through that and and now this. Just just to take a moment is, is this disruption different in dramatically in kind from all of the others you've seen so far? Well, I lived through all that, but then I had another. Exposure to politics with Obama, the because Michelle worked for our firm and and Barack came to be a summer associate and they fell in love and so we got. So we had another round politics with with with the OBAMAS. About that but all throughout, I would say the last fifty years of this you have been intersecting with this institution that we call the presidential debates take us back to nineteen, fifty, nine, nineteen, sixty, where as an aide to at least Stevenson. You actually were involved in the idea of pushing forward the idea that there there. He did not get to take part in that kind of debate but was interested in enemies interested because you are suggesting it. You have a very strong faith in the idea of technology. To be a force for good and for communication and you saw television as this, you're right as this big thing happening in the sixties. Well, it actually was in the fifties in when. In in the fifty six. Presidential, election. The incumbent President President Eisenhower. Having a heart attack. And there was a big question whether he would be able to run again. And I suggested to adly that instead of the candidates. Rushing. All over the country and speaking crowds that that. Now, we have television which reached every home. And that instead of traditional debate that. There'd be a series of joint appearances or debates between the presidential candidates. As they considered that his advisors thought it was a gimmick and it was he never suggested it. The Federal Communications Act when it was originally passed during the new deal. Required equal time for political candidates. The law said section three fifteen FA broadcaster gives or sells time to one candidate. At must give ourselves time to the opponent on the same basis. As a result that was interpreted by the Federal Communications Commission to mean any use of the air by a candidate including being in a news program. So the broadcasters were pressing to get news programs exempt. From the equal time requirement and they finally succeeded in the late fifties. But debates were not regarded as a news program.
White House or Fight House? Tevi Troy’s new book looks at tiffs and turf wars among White House staffers
"With us and we're gonna talk about that you know the fussing and fighting vet says going on in the White House and don't think for a second that that's exclusive to Donald trump's administration you know it's kind of interesting anytime it's its whatever you're closest to write in history and other things they have to be the worst you know and so Donald Trump his administration's wise it just has to be the worst all the fussing and fighting in in fighting that's going on like no other president before well before you really jump that shark and think that that is the case then you start believing you're hyperbole I once you get your hands on this new book called White House from doctor Tevye Troy bestselling author and former White House adviser okay he's been on the inside he's known as and researched and studied this and he's right about now with his book White House rivalries in the White House from Truman J. trump Dr Troy welcome to the show good to have you with us thanks bill Bradley on talk about played out hello this is this is it this is exciting you know that you know to put this out because you know this conversation has come up from time to time and you always hear from you know the hyperbolic that downhole trump is the worst ever and then you you start bringing back some of the the stories and histories and now here it is you've documented it I imagine if you wanted to go back even before Truman we we have to do episodes inch you know volumes of all the fussing happening in the White House right no absolutely and and we know that they were fighting before experiment where we are perfect I mean you look at the administration of Washington and Hamilton and Jefferson murder each other's throats but the difference is they were cabinet members and when I try to get that in my house how the dynamic change once we had the creation of a White House staff there was no real White House staff before Roosevelt and Truman the first person to enter the White House staff and make change the dynamic in that certainly you have the people who are close to the president meaning in the same building advising him on foreign policy and economic policy and then you might have a treasury secretary or spectators biggest ticked off that somebody else is inviting in his area that was one thing that changed in that that meant that I wasn't quite interesting to note that that the dynamic in the entrance of more humanity just because the more issues right yeah look and government was growing mistake became higher and then also you have this right the best celebrity White House aide the whole idea of a White House staff was supposed to be people with a passion for anonymity but that went away pretty quickly especially in the Kennedy administration when he hired people who are already famous like orcas lessons or to work in the White House is suddenly how celebrity White House they had its own reputation has long ties to the craft and they they could get their word out there if the policies were not going their way and to suddenly you have this idea of leaks and counter leaks you can make you look good in the press and that also at the White House right now make that I talk about the book in the course that is continued and become almost like a to the degree of a tender green black belt when you talk about all this and leaking and stuff going on you know but bad enough that it happens in DC but now of course with the most recent refill we understand that even ambassadors in our state department is running rampant with it as well yeah well you talk about ten degree black belt and that that was Henry Kissinger I'll tell you one great story that's been quite how's that Kissinger was dating Jill St John a very attractive bond girl actress Mandy comes out in the papers that Kissinger's dating this woman and Kissinger ghost and extending complains that his rival Christy William Rogers leaked the information about your retaining but the truth is that your lease it because a he wanted everyone to know he was dating that the truck the bond girl would be he wanted to hurt Rogers any internal wars and bribery deposit so what happened what was it what was the conclusion that well well written exam would rail about all the leaking that happened at the state department and constant complained about it but just not your fat it but at least some of the time we know the kiss your will the guy doing the leaking and then blaming the state department and of course everybody knows because your date of birth second longer up there with a win win corrective measure like you would can degrade black belt in Plato's exactly so he gets the he gets the reward and the award let's talk about president Truman we touched a little bit on that I mean he he he was I guess the modern era of the expanding the staff and and really kind of bringing this into play and of course it's just been kind of kind of a a monolith that like the blob is just been growing unto itself right yes Sir but instrument you have the right there were just unbelievable I don't I'm a presidential historian I've been putting this stuff for decades and the story behind in spite house were were things I'd never even heard of and one breaks during the ministration is that the secretary of state George Marshall as opposed to the recognition of the state of Israel which is flabbergasting to update the business interest on July especially right there at that critical time because it was true and that led the battle for inferred knowledge meant of Israel that would that would be very fight with marshals on the wrong side of it Clark Clifford a junior White House beat it on the right side of it make an argument in front of Clifford Clifford and Truman and Marshall are all arguing out in the White House Clifford wins the argument Truman recognized Israel Marshall is still mad that he never again the clippers or mentions his name for the rest of life right yeah right because so it's pretty petty but yeah such as such as you can't be the government the illusion of the Kennedy Camelot regime you said was not devoid of conflict as well of course in Kennedy do you have this notion of Camelot music wonderful people sitting around a table can you never even heard the term Camelot elections administration that comes from our interview that took place after the administration after he was dead yes but even in the administration there was fighting taking place especially between Lyndon Johnson and Robert F. Kennedy canteen was the product any would be turned general and the president brother Lynn Johnson vice president that you hated each other going back to their time in the Senate together when we can't even the lowly staffer and Johnson with the Senate Majority Leader and they had these nasty nicknames for him brought Robert if they reported Johnson is ruthless corded phone and get a canny referred to by Johnson as bunny boy really didn't like each other and they're always trying well anyway and we've known that that that tension what is it was pretty extreme there between them what else within the Kennedy at Camelot compound anything else that you discovered yeah there was a a a a rivalry between artists less intervention before they collect their prize winning historian who came to the White House when the first intellectual ever worked in the White House and then there was Ted Sorensen it was not as well known but he was closer to Kennedy and there was tension between them that continued even after the administration because the two of them we're kind of bracing to get their books out first hand stories then asked her to stop and stop writing his books but it's different in different book out first plus you're obviously would not agree and there were and the race was on and it it colored their relationship there's tension between them that went on for a long time and I got to imagine especially after the assassination these rivalries it would increase all the more would they not yeah and if there is one great story that dean Rusk with the sector state did not like that Slazenger called him brutalized in silence in meetings during the Kennedy administration implying that he wouldn't say anything that's a rough put it out there the only reason he was silent in meetings this lessons are within the facilities are respected leaker and we would talk about everything that he heard needing three wins Mr this is this is great fun Dr Chevy try I'd say it's good fun because you know the politics is just right for comedy it's it's when we take it too seriously like at times we're doing right now in this current environment then we deprive ourselves of of the little bit of humor in thank you Dr drive for presenting

"And welcome back TJ English with us as we talk about the life of Whitey Bolger. And of course, other gangsters and your calls this hour TJ. We're we're talking about the JFK case in you're talking about some mafia logs or something what what happened there. Yeah. We were talking about the assassination, and what was revealed during the church committee hearings banking seventy and this was the thing that really was I opening to me they were able to get all the federal wiretap logs in various mafia cases around the country in the months leading up to the assassination. So out nineteen sixty three leading up to November nineteen sixty three. And all these wiretaps have phone conversations. Both plan folks planted in cars of mafia mafiosi talking amongst themselves. The mafia was livid against the Kennedy administration and the Kennedy Justice department for this unprecedented. Number of arrests in cases that were being made against mafiosi throughout the first couple years of the Kennedy administration and the mob was livid. And I mean, the transcripts of these conversations. So people saying, hey, we need to be taken care of many of them saying that in so many words, so as almost the gossip that was going on amongst mock Yossi in the months leading up to that assassination. When you read those transcripts, it's pretty alarming. That's not evidence that you could use to make a case in court perhaps. But as circumstantial evidence the climate that existed in the underworld leading up to the Kennedy assassination was angry against the Kennedy. I mean, you read the logs or these transcripts, and you're not surprised at all to hear that it ended with the with the murder of JFK. It's remarkable situation. I it really isn't. I mean, it even gets more bizarre TJ where JFK dated one of the mobsters girlfriends Judith Campbell. I mean, the whole thing was strange wasn't it. He was sleeping with Judith Campbell Exner at the same time, she was sleeping with Sam giancana. And where does Frank Sinatra fit into any of this? Oh boy. That's another book, isn't it? I don't know if we want to get into that a lot of books have been written about it. He's in the thick of a lot of things, you know, he was close to JFK. He was close to so many mafia over the years, they had sort of legend is is they hit Bank quilt his career early on Bobby Kennedy who told JFK start distancing yourself from Frank Sinatra. Yes. Yes. Yeah. Because he does wiretaps he was aware that Sinatra was very close to a lot of these figures broke Sinatra's heart when he was remodeling. His Palm Springs house for a JFK visit in JFK decided to go to Bing Crosby's instead. Yes. Okay. Sorry. I think he tore the place apart after you heard that he was he was deeply hurt by that teach your worst mob today. Is it still an existence is still as big as it used to be well, the traditional mob doesn't really exist anymore? You know, talion Irish Cosa Nostra. Yeah. All of it that came out of the prohibition era, which really was the institutionalizing organized crime in America. The framework that was created the corrupt relationship between the gangsters and the politicians and law enforcement with the remnants of that existed for the next coast to one hundred years and held strong for a long time until to a number of factors prosecutions and just social evolution. Diminished. All Pat over over the decades, but organized crime in the United States of America is still very much alive. And well, it's still exists the link between criminal rackets, and and politics is still exists. The players have changed newer newer ways of ethnic groups have become involved in it. But it still exists is sort of a process. Similar ethnic groups go through in the United States to become American there. Still highly lucrative criminal rackets. Like narcotics drugs their heads, lucrative or more. So than than illegal alcohol ever was back in the nineteen twenties when Joe kit, Joe Kennedy made a lot of money doing that. Yes. Yes. He did. So there's money to be made. And whenever there's money to me, there won't be criminal organizations that grow up around it. So it's it's still very much out there. It's not it's not what we think of it as it's not the old world mob of the twentieth century. It's something completely different. Now. Do you think what social media if they had it then during the Kennedy Nixon election that it would have destroyed Kennedy because of his lifestyle? Oh, I don't know. See that's hard to say. I mean, he was out of control. It didn't destroy. It hasn't destroyed. Donald trump. No it's helped in his lifestyle. So I'm not sure what the result of that will be. It's also possible. You know, Kennedy was very photogenic television helped him a lot. Yup. Social media might have helped him a lot. If he knew how to use it. He probably would have done better. Even better than tells me. He would he would have known how to use it. He was surrounded by people who are media savvy in that way. Let's go to the phones Paul's in Boston, first time caller. Hi, paul. Go ahead, sir. Finally after all these years, and we talk about a Boston mobster in your calling us. So that's perfect that because I was an insurance.

Good. All right. Thanks, paul. Good story. Great stories are TJ, you could write more books with these people. Right. Well, you know, one thing you mentioned it caught my attention. You mentioned John martorano who was one of the gangsters who cooperated with the government and wound up one of the keys guys who really. Lead to Whitey Bolger being exposed testified against him in court Martorana pled guilty admitted to twenty murders. Steve fleming. White whitish partner admitted to eleven murders. Bolger was charged with nineteen murders found guilty of eleven of them. There's a lotta murders over over a period of time in the sixties and seventies and early eighties in Boston. This is very violent underworld there. And part of the reason it was violent was one FBI agents using gangsters as informants during up wars in the criminal underworld deliberately pitting gangsters against each other in the criminal underworld. All of that played a role in the level of violence that existed there. And no one gets called into account for that. No, one gets held responsible for that Whitey Bolger was protected and enabled by the criminal Justice system for twenty years other than John Connolly who kind of took the fall for everybody in that arrangement. All these agents mid level agents higher level agents based in Washington that new of that Bolger relationship and sanctioned didn't signed off on it all of them were allowed to slink off in retirement. Held accountable for any of that have full pay to probably to me that's a big part of the scandal of Whitey Bolger. By the way, a breaking story out of Thousand Oaks, California in western Los Angeles area. A mass shooting has just occurred in a nightclub there. A college type nightclub of there are injuries. There. We do not have any information about the suspect. Little breaking story there. Let's go back to the calls. Michael in Virginia Beach Virginia's with say, Michael go ahead, sir.
