"Congress should have gone into special session immediately and said enough is enough But they didn't because they they don't care they're just letting guy do whatever he wants and he's not competent to do it and the people around him aren't competent enough or not. Don't have enough kony's to stand up and tell them you're wrong and we can't do this and we're not gonna do it. I mean it's it's there was a lot of ways out of this and they took none except to take a knee and face out and we had lieutenant-colonel show it come up and say the right thing but you know look what happened to him right. They fire him. They should never done that. So the leadership in this country however it's been made and however it got to this point we need a different design we need a dif- different ideas need different people and until we do that forget about you know.

"What i just stumbled through highly. Recommend looking that up if you haven't read it already or have read it in a while. I think it really capitalized. On the ways that social media and the internet make so clear the vast disparities between people who live in the west and other places or even people who live in the west and other people who live in the west. Nothing closes that gap in awareness. Quite like social media does but along with how fast that gap is being is the overwhelming feeling of. What the fuck do i do. That won't make this worse. And what is often easiest to do. Is what is often the least helpful thing to do aka activism aka putting kony twenty twelve sticker somewhere your college campus or wearing a t shirt with a warlord to face on it the us making him more famous. This really was like activism ground zero in a way that it was culturally. I think a good turn for how people engage with activism online. That like in two twelve and thinking about my classmates an i. r. highschoolers who. I think about like a sixteen year old now on instagram on. Talk talking about pekka vega 'cause pickup light like the term action. Item is one that like a young person would know now to throw around in like a casual casual way that in two thousand twelve. It was like well like share riposte. That's enough know exactly. I think kony twenty twelve kind of came at a perfect time it was the moment that internet advocacy hanes. Were actually becoming a thing in a way. That was recognizable. And i mean to crash and burn on a large world. Stage is clearly traumatic but it taught a generation to be skeptical about these exact sorts of campaigns. It taught nonprofits what not to do like yes shit like the ice bucket challenge still exist. Which is in a way slacked visit but also raised more than two hundred twenty million dollars much money. Exactly like the. What can i do money. Give your fricken dear research but if you can give your fricking money no exactly and that is what kony twenty twelve didn't do in a way i mean they asked to donate to invisible children but i think that so many and i don't know if they would admit this but i think so many nonprofits learned from this moment how to have a viral advocacy campaign. That didn't end up in today's modern parlance cancelled. And yet people still will put like a fucking human rights campaign profile photo leading pictures without quality. side. I just wanted to get married. Okay i do what you need to do. I mean people are putting their dating byles as a really means anything. That doesn't do it for you really. That's not just like oh yeah no. I'm sorry it's it's it's giving black square to get laid as someone once said on twitter but the thing is in the aftermath of tragedy of awareness being raised now in twenty twenty one. I feel like maybe this is optimistic. But i feel like people largely no now to stay away from organizations led by people like jason russell. I think people look at slickly produced things and immediately distressed. It and i think that is the smartest thing to have. Come out of it. And now when math action begins to form a we see people signal boosting things like bail funds or organizations like the palestinian children's relief fund that has direct ties to people affected instead of red cross. Right it's funny. We talked earlier about invisible children's website being overwhelmed by all of his attention. But now i feel like i personally try to seek out as grassroots organizations as possible and we saw that actually over and over in june of twenty twenty with grassroots organizations or small bail funds organizations that previously had not had big national spotlight and suddenly found them thrust into one and these organizations. You know being inundated with donations and supplies and volunteers and sort of You would see a number of them saying thank you. Thank you thank you. We just need a second figure out how to handle this volume. And i think people really do. I mean even most recently with the united states pulling out of aghanistan and the kind of scenes that we're seeing there what i have seen most often and again. This is selection bias. Everyone's social media's curated for people if they want to see but what i have seen is people looking for those who were directly affected and following their lead and i. I can't imagine that something like kony. Twenty twelve would even fly. Today it would be released and people would immediately start clowning on it. Yeah i think to put it very very bluntly kony twenty. Twelve exposed a lot of us for being kind of dumb in the moment and it made us smarter because whether figured it out on our own or listen to criticism from people who were always smarter. It taught an internet less than a really critical internet lesson to a generation at a very critical time. I mean four years after kony. Twenty twelve ferguson. And the exposure black lives matter onto the scene came about and we can get into it for days but i feel like people look at kony twenty twelve and just kind of point to it as everything wrong with digital organizing and in some ways it is but that also just does a disservice to the actual work of digital organizing digital organizing very rarely stops awareness and in fact generally is like. If you're only aware you're part of the fucking problem. I guess what we're saying is that kony. Two thousand twelve always wanted to be educational and it was and remained so although probably not in the way that jason russell and co were hoping for so take what we've learned. Take the cringing memories of being at college. Sophomore and thinking the world could be fixed by sharing a stupid video. And then don't do it again. Do something different.

We are back with stickers because for thirty dollars back in two thousand twelve. You could buy this kid. A t shirt button a bracelet and posters to paper wherever you lived on four twenty inservice up in coney. Sorry it was right there. You're telling me those three white dude did not pick that date on purpose. The cracks in invisible children began to show pretty early on the website kept crashing because it just was not built for. The kind of traffic goes receiving. They were running their website off of tumbler and so they were getting unfair attention saying that they weren't prepared win. Their website is kept crashing. Which this happens all the time when shit goes viral. Most websites are not built for this kind of traffic. The idea of not being prepared for viral fame extends beyond invisible children's technical limitations one of its co-founders jason russell experiences a very public mental breakdown and is detained by the san diego police after he seen wandering around in a state of undress their rumors about him masturbating those are untrue. But they're they're very pervasive at the time. He's hospitalized for several weeks and to hear him talk about this moment in his life miserable. It's just like nonstop media barrage and press and attention. Negative and positive. I don't think it's unfair to say that going. That viral is like viscerally an unhealthy experience. Even if you were seeking fame and attention the first place like nothing really can prepare you for. I went to bed. And i woke up. And now we're the biggest thing on the internet in the history of the internet there had never been anything like kony twenty twelve before i mean. We are so familiar with the concept of milkshake ducking. I think most organizations that are attempting to go viral. Try to kind of have every all their ducks in a row but in two thousand twelve. That just wasn't as much of a thing so invisible children wasn't prepared for questions about their finances which people found because they're a nonprofit so they're publicly accessible so it's a complicated nuance story. That gets flattened in the whether the internet does combine with jason russell's mental breakdown combined with all this attention combined with the criticisms that we mentioned before the break of the kind of lindsey. This video is coming from so that by the time cover. The night happens a month and a half after kony twenty twelve. It's a flop. Facebook events would have fifty thousand people are as being to attend and then like fifty would show in reality. It was a real a real moment of realization for the kony twenty twelve movement that making him visible making people aware of joseph. Kony's existence wasn't enough to actually motivate people to do anything about it to leave their homes. It did motivate some people to like tags stuff with kony twenty twelve. I mean i remember getting to my college. Campus two years after kony twenty twelve and finding a kony twenty twelve stickers somewhere on campus and being like what a fucking relic and it was like less than two years later so only a year after the kony twenty twelve video so now we're into twenty thirteen invisible. Children post a new video looking back at all of the success of kony two thousand twelve. It's called what happened to kony. Twenty twelve and. I think you can't see me but i i made big air quotes around success. I think it's fair to say on some level. This campaign was absolutely successful. In the goals they set out. They did make joseph kony a household name. That was the plan all along. Maybe the plan should have been a little more. Nuanced awareness doesn't actually save anyone in a concrete way but that part worked. Thank you gas case. Hey what about gay conan. All the abductions violence and murder. Worry you can see this video. What happened kony. Twenty twelve has all the same markers that kony twenty club does. It's who's picking the music do anything. It is so emotionally manipulative compelling. I'm like yes in. I will run a marathon. I will climb everest. I will solve world hunger if wild watching these videos back almost a decade later and knowing everything that they were doing kind of seeing all the strings are pulling i still was just like this is kind of pulling me in. This is kind of working. They're incredibly effective marketers. We love propaganda. This video tells the story of you. Rising up me and rachel and everyone in the world rising up until the government until literally the president obama just had to get involved it has all these shots of what appear to be like hordes of people in red coney t-shirts swarming national mall like it's like the second coming of the march on washington like the way it's shot is just like we are this massive in sweeping movement and not like fifty people showed that fifty thousand people like it's just such like instagram versus reality comparison. Yes exactly. it's the the trump inauguration all over that was pretty much the last thing about kony that invisible children did you kind of have to dig to find kony two thousand twelve on their website. Though we should mention they are still inactive nonprofit. Doing work on the ground in uganda. Jason russell is no longer with invisible. Children and Is now like a. I don't know twitter bio says he and his Partner sold all their stuff and took the kids to see the world and he writes children's books about how to raise an activist. Honestly it attracts about makes sense. Kony is still at large though. The elleray has significantly diminished to the point that i believe the coalition that was looking for him decided that he was no longer a threat which leaves some big questions right. What was this all for. What it actually do. I mean when. I look back on it now. I think a lot about how kony twenty twelve was meant to make me a white person feel better sitting in that classroom at a college that was very privileged to attend watching this on a laptop that i was privileged to own and feel better because you know if you bought the thirty dollars kit. You were doing something. And that's better than nothing right. It was like the illusion of absolution it was textbook white industrial savior complex term. That actually came out of kony.

"Like the crazy revisions. Jon m chu on a mission. Uganda deep inside your mind that it gets make an stock going dainik. Is this eireann. Do we think this is camp wrong. Cod cast okay. So we already have john chewing pete wentz involved in the story and we haven't even gotten to kony twenty twelve. This is important because Invisible children is incredible at marshalling celebrity activism. It is perhaps a thing. They are best at to the point. That win in two thousand. Ten obama signs. The lord's resistance army disarmament and northern. Uganda recovery act invisible. Children is in the oval office. This assigned they are perhaps one of the best organizations that we've covered so far at just sheer level of awareness and brand building and this comes into play in a major way march twenty twelve the main event. Oh boy so in march of two thousand twelve invisible children releases this slickly produced thirty minute long video detailing joseph kony's career with the point of making him a household name. Let's just assume the households are in the west going to stop. I made that promise to jacob not knowing what it would mean but now i do over the past nine years i have fought to fulfill it and the fight has led me here to this movie. Your watching because that promise is not just about jacob or me. It's also about you and this year. Twenty twelve is the year that we can finally fulfil it. The underlying message is that we need to do. We change the something about something. Is running appearing. Listen back to this video. So there's a clear focus in this video on the kind of promise of social media. the number. One thing they wanted us to do was to share the movie online the call to action had about three steps overall. One signed the pledge to get kony twenty twelve bracelet and action kit for only thirty dollars and three sign up to donate to invisible children. Kony twenty twelve goes viral in a big way. Perhaps the biggest way anything had ever gone viral. Yep that point shots to the guardian and the p. research center for compelling these stats kony two thousand twelve. The video was the speedy ever to reach one hundred million views on youtube which should achieved within sixty days of posting fifty eight percent of adults between eighteen and twenty nine said they had heard of the video in the days following the launch. That is just a cut homing large. That is insane. Things that go viral on the internet right now feel like they have a bigger reach but the things that we describe as viral on the show. I don't think they've day. Percent of adults between eighteen and twenty nine would say they've heard of bama rush talk. You know with that growth and that rapid league growing audience comes almost immediate backlash critics attacked russell and the film for bending facts and there were questions about the group's financial dealings glosses over not of the complexities for example in a war full of contradictions and it makes a villain out of one man in a wall full of bad people. There's also been a lot of criticism of the filmmaker himself. I think what is not shown in the video as the other part of this picture which is a ugandan military that has also been tremendously abusive in terms of the rights of invisible children. The organization has also come under fire for not sending enough of the donations. It collects to africa a couple of the key. Criticisms are that the kony two thousand twelve made it appear as though coney had tens of thousands thirty thousand child soldiers when we all watched that video in march two thousand twelve when that was how many children he had abducted over the course of decades and that is just to be clear horrifying and terrible but those details are important. It also didn't make clear that kony was most likely probably definitely no longer in uganda. Yes that's the kind of a key part. In terms of the fact that uganda was trending and coney was not there. The video also supported the ugandan government's army which also does not have a great human rights record no also doesn't have a great human rights record the united states military. What was wild about this. Video is that it was tacitly in kind of explicitly supporting military interventions specifically u. s. military intervention and. I feel like if there's anything we've learned is that maybe that's not great at this point. We're pretty well. Situated in march of two thousand twelve kony. twenty twelve is in many ways an unprecedented success. It has this huge groundswell of support followed quickly by a huge groundswell of criticism but what it also has is a call to action cover. The night is supposed to take place on april twentieth. Two thousand twelve a month after the video goes live across the world. Theoretically cities are supposed to wake up to streets covered in stop kony.

"That's slickly produced thirty minute long. Video about ugandan warlord. Joseph kony that almost instantly went viral. What do you think we should do about. It should start holds the criminal huge kuni. Stop him and then saw. We should stop who. It's obvious that kony should be stopped. The problem is ninety. Nine percent of the planet does feel like here where. I have to come clean immediately that i was a college student at the time and i absolutely remember sitting in a study room not studying watching this thirty minute video and then hosting it on facebook with some deep caption like wow so important. Oh madison same boat. Except i was in high school so i feel like i'm a little bit more excuses than you are less embarrassing but we weren't alone. We were joined by everyone. From your local neighbor to kim kardashian and oprah who tweeted out stop kony or the appropriate hashtag kony twenty twelve. Uganda trends on twitter. Millions of people see this video and basically ask as we asked. What can i do. Besides posting on. Facebook and at the center of this digital empathy hurricane is invisible children. A charity started by three white twentysomethings so be catapulted to viral fame for reasons. Both good and bad is perhaps the nicest way to put it in twenty twenty one kony. Twenty twelve is now synonymous with this very particular kind of western slacked of them. But back then back then where you're back. In the olden days in two thousand twelve the groundswell of conversation. This video provoked was entirely new. Like you watching this video me watching this video and feeling like wow. This is making me feel different than anything on the internet ever has wasn't like the anomalous response. That was how millions of us felt watching this and on today's episode. We're gonna take you through the history of invisible children leading up to that viral moment. We're also going to get into the aftermath of kony two thousand twelve and and talk a little bit about what it says about the digital activism of the twenty tens and what it means for digital activism quite literally today as in today today the day you are listening to this episode but i what is invisible children. It's when harry potter puts on the cloak. Exactly yes it's also when frodo puts on the ring no what. It really is is nonprofit founded by three. I don't think it needs to be said but we'll say at three white people say it again. Say oh jason russell bobby bailey and laron pool. The three went to africa at that is how they describe it. I'm not aware that it's a continent in two thousand three to film a documentary on the war in darfur as you know one does after graduating from film school. No that is not me making a joke. One of them actually did jess graduate from film school and they describe it as when in search of a story yes. I went in search of a job after graduating from school but to each their own. So while searching for a story ajab jason russell witnessed gunmen shooting at a truck in front of him which is how he learned about. Joseph kony and the lord's resistance army. This leads him to found invisible children in two thousand and four fun fact. There's been some dispute over whether or not he in fact witnessed that shooting or was just told about it. Of course this dispute about this. We don't have time to get into that because it's actually a lot of information. And we also have to do a brief digression here to explain coney and the ellerey. And i really mean brief because neither i or jason. Russell are in any way qualified to explain this. Maybe the only thing one of the few things. Let's say that kony twenty twelve guests right. Is that joseph. Kony is a fucking heinous human being a warlord. A leader of the lord's resistance army which operated in. Uganda has operated in uganda. Since the nineteen nineties they have abducted thousands of children over the decades for us as child soldiers. Sex slaves they have mutilated children. They have forced children to kill. They're just evil incarnate. They were actually indicted by the international criminal court in two thousand and five four war crimes. They were of brutalizing civilians in northern uganda. Through murder. abduction mutilation the burning property and in two thousand five. The elleray was actually forced out of uganda by the army and win to what it was then sudan and is now south sudan and they eventually set up camp there in the border area between the democratic republic of congo sudan and the central african republic. This is important to remember. Coney is objectively a terrible human. Being importantly not in uganda by two thousand five in two thousand six so back to him visited children. It's the year two thousand six in two thousand six jason wrestling co create invisible. Children the rough cut which is about children soldiers and night commuters which defined by amnesty international. Our children who would leave their homes every night to go to large urban areas or camps to escape being abducted invisible children the rough cut actually has a pretty small reach. Compared to what kony twenty twelve would eventually do but invisible children. The company expands it by personally going to tin thousand high schools colleges and churches to screen the film. This is one of several attempts at making kony a viral hit. In two thousand seven they organize a movement called displace me which is a rallying of about sixty seven thousand young people in fifteen cities to raise awareness about refugees. In ugandan displacement camps. Pete win takes part in moose way like Like fall out. Boy yes pete. Wentz takes part in one of these displaced me events. I feel like we've skipped my personal favorite Invisible children attempt at a virology prior to the two thousand twelve era which was a. What's say high school musical. Ask parody music video. They sing about uganda and motivating people to care about uganda notably directed by john. Chew like the crazy rich asians john. Mu on a mission. Uganda deep inside. Your mind gets and making sparkle. Shy with that this ironic. Do we think this is camp wrong. Comcast okay so we already have. John chu impeach involved in the story. And we haven't even gotten to kony twenty twelve. This is important because invisible. Children is incredible at marshalling celebrity activism. It is perhaps the thing they are best at to the point that when in two thousand ten obama signs the lord's resistance army disarmament and northern. Uganda recovery act invisible. Children is in the oval office when this assigned they are perhaps one of the best organizations that we've covered so far at just sheer level of awareness and brand building and this comes into play in a major way march twenty twelve the main event boy so in march of two thousand twelve invisible children releases this slickly produced thirty minute long video detailing joseph kony's career with the point of making him a household name in let's just assume the households are in the west.

For reasons both good and bad is perhaps the nicest way to put it in twenty one kony. Twenty twelve is now synonymous with this very particular kind of western activism.

You not really doing yourself any favors. You should definitely go. Listen to shit that people are not listening to you can find inspiration. That'll make your shits different.

The best artists got originals on a lot of people are goats because they was first people doing what they were doing. Not really because they're the best. Rapper is 'cause they're the first people doing that.

Consider yourself when it comes to production in shaka's when i was in your most recent project i definitely felt like you might have taken some influence from some of the shit going on in detroit in terms of that sorta like using some of those old samples and and having the real fast paced beats and shit. I'm gonna i ain't going lada. Sample is really. I get the samples from like that's really like sob. Like bay area. Time for me. The uptempo like low like yuck is a little flavor of detroit in there.

So it's always gonna be somebody that starts a certain era and it's supposed to build down a lot of people be mad to like give people credit but it's like you me at the end of the day whether you know it or not everybody kinda raps a certain way because if somebody else you want.

Uganda's Museveni Faces Tough Challenge In Presidential Election
"New seven E, who has been in power for 35 years. Is facing a strong challenge from Bobby Wine. Ah young singer turned politician who's half his age. MPR's Africa correspondent later Peralta is in Uganda's capital of Kampala. And he interviewed the president and he joins us Now with this exclusive and ater. Where did you meet the president? So we met at his ranch in she. SOC, which is about a five hour drive from Kampala and his cows were grazing in the distance. And you know, he came in making jokes. He was carrying a travel mug and wearing his signature broad brimmed hat, and we sat under this big tree to talk. Guess before we dive in. Can you tell us a little bit more about him? Yes. So he helped topple to dictators in the seventies and eighties. But now he has been in power. Since 1986. Uganda has changed the Constitution twice to allow him to stay in power, and he is now running for a six term in office. The election is on Thursday. So I started with a pretty simple question. What is it that you haven't accomplished in 35 years? You plan to accomplish this time around and as most 70 is bound to do, he gave me a history lesson and colonialism. And he said that he wants to work to bend the arc of history on the continent, including to change what he said was a culture of not working hard. Not with this huge continent. With a small population. Has a good Mentality for its people. They don't have to work hard. No, this would be the struggle week. These know it all. Promotes. I don't know. Because in other parts of the world People are pressure to work either by the environment. Which is horse died. Oh, by competition between man and man, But here Fool's gonna survive. Don't tell that really harsh thing to say about you just recorded to record that is really harsh, so he didn't talk about a five point plan about issues like building roads or improving schools. No. I think he was insulted by the question because he said that it implied that he should leave office after 35 years. He says that he's trying to accomplish historical things, and he looked to George Washington as a model. The Americans are the most powerful country in the history of man. I want to do. What Washington did work for the economic and, in some cases, even political integration of Africa. So using the United States is an example. You and here I told President Museveni, the George Washington gave up power after eight years to make a point that the American presidency was not a lifetime appointment, and 70 argued that Washington could leave because the American electorate and its economic system was more sophisticated when the social direction Over society. Is already set. It would have been run it. Probably with you know, kids, the dentition is not set. So it's very risky, very risky age, actually, from the lack of seriousness off those who talk the way you were talking That you you just go. Just go. People don't know whether the world North or South And you see you just go. Yes, if before already clear that the direction is the North. David. The body's no longer There's no more argument about that. Then anybody thunder candidate. I can see it now. You know the way that you go. But your people are smart and they're entrepreneur Ng and I mean to to be totally honest here. I think what you're saying sounds really condescending toward your It's not under city. It is a struggle to J. A society which we know where Which, of course you don't know very well. Hmm. So transition is risky, he's saying but later what does his record after 35 years actually show Hey, look, there's no denying that most 70 has brought peace to Uganda. There's a saying in the rural parts that suffered tremendously under the terror of the L. A raise Joseph Kony. But at least they can sleep. But look, Uganda is still deeply poor and corruption is endemic. And I asked him specifically about his foreign minister. A few years ago, the FBI found that he took a $500,000 bribe from a Chinese businessman. You know, after they looked through some emails of hiss yet Sam Kutesa is still one of president was seventies. Most trusted men. What do you tell Ugandans who see this pass by and you don't fire your foreign minister? That one is is terrible. I have not read it. But what I read it on. I really I despised And Condemning or policy. It's I'm happy to send you the indictment, which has the email in it, you can reuse do But look, The truth is he has had years to read this, so he must have known about this. Okay Elections, as we've mentioned are on Thursday. Is he campaigning? He is He's everywhere in Uganda, but he did still take the time to drag me around his farm to show me his cows. Yeah. These and these cows or his prized possessions, and you know they're beautiful, and he has 10,000 of these cows. But as he was walking away, he wanted to explain what made him different from his young opponent, he says. Bobby Wine is too focused on the lumpen proletariat or the thoughtless masses because what you do with the money the income generated by the By us the farmers. The industry's That would happen Who would head up in the ghetto people? Hmm? So he's saying if you can't hear it, that it is the rich like him, who will help the ghetto people. And this is coming from a man who has 10,000 cows in a country where many people eat meat for special occasions. Maybe for Christmas or for ead. This is so fascinating. Aitor will have more of your interview later today. What will be here? So we will ask him about elections will talk about his opponent and why security forces have reacted so violently to protests.

That's great if you're willing to bleed So, uh, yeah, because that I have to go to West Virginia that bridge between Ohio, West Virginia going to her. Charleston's been the Chuck Yeager Bridge for No 40 years. So you know, I assumed he wasn't around anymore. But, yeah, certainly in American hero and particularly back in his day. Shut down 13 German planes, five of them in a day, as was just mentioned. And then broke the sound barrier two years after the war 1947 So that's a big one right
Donald Trump and Melania Trump both test positive for COVID-19
"The October surprise is a cherished part of US presidential election mythology the late breaking game changer with engineer contrivance or priests of. Two Thousand and twenty s octo surprise seems to have come early. President, DONALD TRUMP and first lady melania trump have both tested positive for covid nineteen and will now be self isolating. It is just thirty two days until the presidential election joining me with more on this Dr Chris Smith Monocle two, thousand, four, hundred and science correspondent and Scott Lucas professor of US Politics University of Birmingham Chris First of all would it possibly actually have been more of an October surprise if none of the key figures in this election came down with the illness I think. So I'm pretty surprised actually the. They've oh, taken. So long to catch it if you wind your mind back to SORTA March April time, Prince Charles was one of the first people note in the UK when the first high profile people who meet a lot of people to catch it. Then thankfully recover on therefore slightly surprised that Donald Trump and other people who are on the presidential campaign trail have encountered court and demonstrates this before maybe they have maybe that time they didn't know maybe this time they do maybe this time they're saying something about it. Scott Lucas. DC will just right now be waking up to this news and trying to understand how it is going to affect the last month of campaigning What do you think obviously debates again to have to be remote if they going to be held at old trump won't be able to hold anymore rallies and presumably the bulletin team will now all have to be tested and may have to isolate as will. Probably, what Chris said, we're shocked that this had come out before that the by campaign team probably had gained for this type of possibility. They will have been testing regularly, and of course, Joe Biden is in the middle of a train stopped tour of key swing states such as Ohio, and Pennsylvania. So they'll go ahead as much as you can be normal in the next month while offering hopes for the recovery of Donald Trump along as well as trump's close aide. Hope Hicks. I think it's the trump campaign that'll be in disarray today trying to figure out what to do Let me just say for a couple reasons why I? As we've noted trump no longer has his primary outlet of campaign rallies, large gatherings without mass without social distancing where he just rambled for sixty ninety minutes and try to grab headlines. Secondly, a, you're in a position where corona virus goes back to being the number one issue in the campaign and the trump campaign hoping to bury it or push it to the side. Let's talk about Supreme Court. Let's talk about trump's cultural war against that extremist anarchist. Let's not talk about two, hundred, ten, thousand Americans who are dead closing seven and a half million cases, and then thirdly, this actually I think undermines disinformation the trump campaign had put out about Joe Biden being physically mentally unfit indeed remember. If you remember, he goes back that far enough that they mopped Biden for supposedly being in the basement for observing coronavirus restrictions and not coming out and campaigning publicly before the start of June. It looks Joe Biden's white wise right. Now while the questions over judgment physical health, we'll be about Donald trump and four years ago. Of course, President Trump mocked, Hillary Clinton for becoming ill with what looked like pneumonia during the campaign, Chris. Is it possible that this might make a difference, one way or the other to how seriously Americans take this I mean, might hopefully make it clear to trump's base that this virus is real and it is dangerous but alternatively should trump not appear to too badly affected and should he recover quickly that might rather dangerously amplify his narrative that it's not that big a deal Martin did it could go either way couldn't it and indeed? He has the odds in his favor even in a person's eighties that chance of making a recovery in other words not succumbing to grove infection as well north of ninety percent. So it's not to give him that just because someone who is his age mid seventies who has other pre existing health conditions? He he does have obesity they will increase risk. It's not a given though that he'll come off worse for this he make. A complete recovery probably most people do and the other thing to bear in mind is, is this genuinely the first time? He's had it because it may well be he has become reinfected and this time perhaps I'm speculating wildly here and I might be completely wipe them up but wouldn't it be wonderful if he ends up I've got this of course it but then bounces back incredibly fast and demonstrates how powerful he really is. you can see that working well for him. You can also see this for the reason, Scott that you mentioned it playing badly for him in that it does amplify covid nineteen as an issue in the in the minds of most voters but. What are the actual practical considerations here? I. Mean You mentioned the Supreme, court nomination to fill that vacancy left by the death of Ruth Bader Ginsburg. CanNot actually go ahead and I guess the big question is there any doubt whatsoever about the actual election at this point? Assuming that. Kony Barrett did not get corona virus donald trump when she made a public appearance alongside him six days ago. Yeah. This can go ahead because you're talking about the hearings that take place. In the Senate. which will be socially distanced I'm sure. So Mitch McConnell push that through the problem for the trump campaign, they can no longer make that the headline event and try to galvanize their supporters around given these circumstances. Secondly, on the delay of the election is extremely difficult to delay the election you have to amend. Through Congress an act from eighteen forty, five, i. think the practicalities of that are very, very difficult and I think it's a huge gamble for Republican senators, some of whom are facing difficult reelection battles to do that because the Democrats will say, they're just trying to use a pretext to push this this back because remember, we've been facing a donald trump who has been saying if I don't like the election result, I don't have to observant I can stay in the White House that I think undercuts the effort that could be made to say look there's A legitimate reason given the pandemic to push the date back. Scott. Lucas Christmas thank you both very much for joining
Mark Meadows Speaks with Reporters
"Today outside the White House chief of staff Mark Meadows spoke to reporters for a little over 10 minutes on issues, including the replacing Ruth Bader Ginsburg on the U. S. Supreme Court. The president said he needs nine Justice Supreme Court election challenge because he asked me of potential nominees how they will vote. No, he hasn't. Actually I've been in those interviews and I could tell you it would be inappropriate for us Ask those kinds of questions. I think his comments were more just an indication that we need a a full panel on the Supreme Court. You don't want to ever provide a a situation where there could be Tie a 44 ty not to suggest that this should be a 44 tie. I think it should be more of a unanimous decision on some of the facts that I have seen. But obviously I'm not a justice. They would have to hear That case would be highly inappropriate. We wouldn't want to ask a question that would perhaps for some potential nominee to recuse themselves. Should they have to hear this waste but with him out there, saying he needs to have this justice because there might be a challenge. That create bags of a conflict of interest for whoever you well, I know no more than any other judge that has been nominated by Donald Trump or Barack Obama or anybody else. I mean to suggest that just because they were nominated by somebody that they would have an inherent bias, I think we've seen from the court rulings already by the Supreme Court. They're an independent body, and they don't necessarily vote the way that you might think they should. I can tell you that That particular issue is eyes, Probably the least of potential nominees. Worries that it makes you effective profits were kind of expecting a second question. The president will have confidence. I can't speak to the second question in terms of the confidence in director Ray, I can tell you that I was Very, very disappointed to see some of the text messages and emails that came out yesterday. And some of the discovery that was put for from my previous job is a member of Congress. I know that I've asked for exactly those kinds of documents and never got them on that was under the previous director and also under this director on so it is time for direct array to quit in my mind playing footsie with transparency and Deliver those documents. The second part of your question was more that I think. Well, I think if past is prologue, I mean, we've got all kinds of indications that the Democrats are. We're going to use the next 30 days to try Tio shame. Whatever nominee we put four for their faith for their record for who they are, and Troubling. I mean, we've got it. We see even today that way don't have AH continuing resolution passed because Chuck Schumer is playing games with procedural aspect based on a potential nominee. We took down a election security hearing today because Chuck Schumer's playing games that's minor. That's that's child's play compared to what we will see over the next 30 days, But we're prepared for the fight. What we will see is, I think Be thorough Vetting but hopefully done in expeditious way way. I didn't say it was Judge Merrick Isa. Good leading question. You can say that the president's confidence in director, I haven't talked to him about it. Well, I can tell you that we have a number of people that continue to serve at the pleasure of the president that he has different degrees of confidence in on DSo Tio directly speak to that question. Without actually talking to him would be inappropriate about healthcare. Big announcement guys today the president wanted to executive orders now the U. S government policy that preexisting conditions should be protected. Forced the affordable care act right now is that five lost? What are Americans make policy of already existing protection? Well, Peter, you as you know, there's a court case going through as it relates to the affordable care act and what the president Wanted to make sure I was clear not once not twice. But now a third time in signing that executive order is to make sure that preexisting conditions are covered that insurance companies can price people out of their coverage just because of the illness that they have or could have come down with, And it was just a commitment and say that if the court strike that down any future legislation under a Trump administration would guarantee that preexisting conditions are covered. And so From his perspective, It's just trying to make sure that the message is clear. He's been very clear in the Oval Office, You know, Sometimes the campaign rhetoric in the ads that get place do not match the private conversations in the Oval. White House chief of staff Mark Meadows outside the White House earlier today. Scepticism of some because obviously the president president for four years, But they say that it's that they should be protected his only a policy. It's not along. We've never seen a plan. Peter, this is not your first rodeo. And you know how Congress has the inordinate and unbelievable ability to obstruct, especially when you have a divided Congress. I don't know of a single Democrat that would be willing to take down on Obama care piece of legislation haven't served in the car. It's almost like they're Holy grail. Now they'll admit there's all kinds of flaws and all kinds of problems with it that they won't fix, but they won't repeal it. And so it's all about making sure that the message to the American people gets covered. One of the interesting things that no one seems to be picking up on too much. Well, is the $200 copay that's actually is going it is coming from the savings from the executive order on most favored nation big farmer would push back on that. Pushback on that, But we're going to be able to save tens of billions of dollars were actually going to use a demo. Ah, demo for to be Medicaid CMS demo project that will actually allow us to use about $7 billion to pay for those. But those will be offset with savings from from Pharma as we enacted most favorite nation, money way have we have a 10 year? Window on that for those savings, and we're actually working on those final rules. Those proposed rules now to put forth But just like the Obama administration used the same program in the previous administration were going to use it now to make sure that seniors get the benefit of those savings today and that they don't have to wait for those you already prepping initial Supreme Court nominee for confirmation questions and Wilder wise guy sort of Urfa. Person around Capitol Hill with numbers on DSO in terms of prepping any particular nominee that we have. No, we have not started prepping those. We won't until the nomination is full on I see me mean by wise guy could be wise guy or a gal, a cz, a Sherpa, and so as we wait guys in a plural and generic sense I would have seen on so as we look at that. I don't know that we'll be using Sherpa as much we've been working with leader McConnell, in a very direct way of had daily conversations would leader McConnell a number of senators because of covert and the inability of senators to actually engage more on a office by office faces? We're looking at modifying that if there is a need for a Sherpa, we've actually have asked the leader for some recommendations. There were certainly open to that. But I think next week what you'll see Is Patsy polonium myself, making sure that we make the nominee available to a wide variety of senators. Political question. You aware that Amy Kony's merit worked on foot vs board and you know what was her role? Apparently, she was in Florida working for Stuart Levey. According to her question. Yeah, I I'm certainly aware of every nominees record, whether it's Amy Comey, Barrett or anybody else. I can't say I don't think that this is a hanging Chad problem. This's more a mail in ballot. Unsolicited mail in ballot with delays in collection of those ballot issue. Hopefully, we're not gonna have a hanging Chad problem when my last question was president, felling three of your quote, By the way, I think you owe guide okay. Yeah, that sounds like a good stand. Wise wise guys. Okay, campaign. Apparently, the RNC are telling Republican voters essentially that they need To vote absentee necessary. Isn't that sort of out of line with the president's message going to be male in front? And I mean, I think absentee ballots if they've got a normal process, perhaps auntie ballots like we had in North Carolina. I don't know that that process is one that is new or different. I can't speak to every state. All I can speak to is North Carolina, but but I can't. Say you that solicited ballads with absentee requests or certainly something that has been the norm eyes the unsolicited ballots mailing to ever registered voter that he has a bigger problem with and that most Americans should have a problem with that theory is she's been radio programming from Friday. Well, I don't know That's how I'm basing the acceptance. Of the election here is a valid point here is what we want to make. Sure of is that laws are not changed by a few judges making it like in North Carolina consent decree. Don't change the laws that are on the books just so that you can extend the election time. Most states, North Carolina and others have a very long time for them to be able to cast their ballots either in person or by mail leading up to November. 3rd s O to suggest that we should have November 3rd. It's a week plus two weeks like has been mentioned in some states is not. There is not something that I think is necessary. The other is is when you have secretaries of states in a partisan manner, potentially certifying election results. We want to make sure that they do this on on away that's credible and they can with stand the scrutiny of of the public eye on allow a partisan process to get in. I don't know if you're following what's happened. In North Carolina. But it's very troubling where you have a a Democrat group, filing suit against a Democrat, Board of elections and then doing a consent decree. That's not what the American judicial system is all about. It's in my opinion gaming the system. Hopefully, that judge will not go ahead with that consent decree but is very problematic and it disenfranchises voters whether they're Republican, unaffiliated or Democrat. We want to make sure every vote counts. But We want to make sure that on ly one vote count ceremony, I I'm I'm assuming that we were invited. I don't know about the best. You know the invite list. Obviously, yesterday we wanted to make sure before he left town. He paid respects and so way actually adjusted his schedule so that he could do that. Yesterday I travelled with him and, as you know, way made that a priority. Thanks, guys. White House Chief of staff Mark Meadows outside the White House this morning,

"Controversial former prime minister. Silvio. Berlusconi will remain in isolation at his home.

"kony" Discussed on Ghost Town
"Meltdown. I'm Rebecca Lieb. Jason Horton and this is a ghost town. The next twenty seven minutes are an experiment but in order for it to work. You have to pay attention. Do you want to go back to two thousand twelve. I Love Two thousand twelve. I was on a main stage Harrelson. I O S Yeah I was flying high and the world wasn't crumbling. Yeah the world. Didn't end yeah. It didn't but it did see. It's really its first true viral video and it was at the time the most viral videos and it was part of kind of like a Social Awareness and that happens a lot more now and a lot of. It's sometimes more in blog or think pieces in but as far as viral videos to you have to share this now. Everyone's like share this year the shares back. Then it really It was it was the thing. Yeah it was definitely. I feel like they were a lot of like like gifts and memes before this but this is like it like sketch the like like this is a big political heavy. Hey Dj like you'd be talking about it everywhere everywhere. Everyone's like have you seen this and what we're talking about. Kony twenty twelve. Oh yeah which is interesting because the coney part is the Guy. That horrible guy is kind of used to bring attention to and to try to find justice. And the the varietal. Morality of it came with a lot of controversy. Yeah criticism and it kind of all ends up in a meltdown. So this is kind of like it's not a two-parter but there's two parts to this really. Yeah so just to give you just remind you of Coney two thousand twelve because now. Everything's I feel like that. Sounds like coney running for president. Do you run for president. And twelve is coney a guerrilla killed what you and twenty twelve. Three American men also known from the small profit the invisible children which was founded in two thousand four lauch campaign to make Ugandan warlord. Joseph Kony the most infamous person in the world. He's the leader of the Elleray. Which is the Lord's resistance? Army decades guerilla group and Coney had been indicted by the International Criminal Court for war. Crimes barbaric horrible kidnapping sex slaves turning children into sold You know child soldiers everything that could be done that as bad and that's been going on for the campaign launched March. Two thousand twelve was called. Kony twenty twelve almost like a little documentary and racked up more than one hundred million views within six days. Making it at the time the most watched viral video. Obviously like gang style came out and stuff like that a lot of things come out and and surpassed that but at the time and this is a not own. Let's watch this fun thing too heavy you that. This is kind of before instagram. I mean obviously tick tock obviously vine like this sort of thing where people were sharing videos via Youtube. It was not like that was such a huge thing versus. Were really kind of Because I remember I remember personally being like I always like you know and I was like I didn't say hey this is a scam is wrong but there was something in me was like what is it about this. I didn't know I could have been very You know it's easy. After the fact like I knew it was dubious. Yeah and I didn't know if it was dubious but there's something about it where I think maybe it's because so many people were very do your part and I was just do my part about what are you talking about. Do I fit in this? Yeah and so just to be fair in a way some of this is a success in some ways. This is failure in some ways. This is a cautionary tale. Yeah and nonprofits and where the money goes is not new. I mean about live eight if you WANNA look ninety five Wycliffe. John's has a whole kind of conspiracy. Swindle did a great only on their on their patron but About where the money actually where the money actually goes because the Red Cross or or any of these things and you know fortunately now that you can do some rating systems where maybe some of these nonprofits go and depending on how you feel about where the money goes. Yeah they can be put to task more and It can be a little more itemized and a little more transparent but this this video Kony. Twenty twelve is is great Showcase of the disconnect between popularity and action. I actually learned a word. I'll get to that is I mean. I don't know if it's if it's the word or whatever it's not like essentially just learned this word but it's interesting word that was used But the aim was to the aim was to raise money awareness on Kony's crimes and it was a success. The the visible children collected five million dollars in the first two days. Oprah gave two million Bill Gates tweeted the Hashtag. The HASHTAG was huge. Yeah Hashtag Twelve Hashtag absolutely so twitter obviously and really anywhere Reinsured the video. The Ugandan conflict continues despite US involvement. That was happening long before invisible children video again. Look it's not like Hayes. Nobody's doing anything about it. I mean it's it's a longstanding bat. You know what I mean like. How much intervention happens so? It's not but of a lot of people didn't know about it and in fairness they they were aware of it and they brought attention to and I think people thought. Oh they're gonNA get this guy but that wasn't necessarily they brought to justice and awareness. But I think the way it was sort of presented and I think a lot of the criticisms was presented as a very over simplification of what is happening. This guy bad doing this must stop him. And the way it was presented there was just other layers and other things that have happened. That are omitted. Maybe because it's just a viral video. Yeah the power is in making something black and white and making something simple to digest. It's not in the complexities. The systemic you know horrible things that are happening in the yeah. There's so much more to our world than that but like it's not as effective if you show all those things yeah. Today's episode is sponsored by best fiends.

New Media, Old Story
"Seth did do you have a home page on the internet back in the nineteen nineties and the days before facebook and twitter sometime in the mid to late nineties. I used one of those free services that let you you make a page and kinda messed around with it for a while but didn't get too far. One of those things i tripos g._m._c. diesel exactly yes so in the one thousand nine hundred and you may actually have i've had some embarrassing page now lost to the you know the archives of the internet <hes> with like flashing text and <hes> you know the number of people in aliens who've seen this page like a page h. Counter horrible animated icons the whole shebang. I had some free web space that came with my internet account so i made some pages as well and i remember every time. A new version of netscape came out because that was like the best web browser new h._t._m._l. Codes and it could do things if you learn how to use those codes happy times james. It all looks so cheesy now but at the time it was really exhilarating success. Let me describe a situation to you. An exciting new medium has emerged changed around the turn of a new century is open to anyone. If you have the right equipment though you do have to learn a strange code so initially it's the more techie types you get involved you could encounter uh-huh wide range of voices and a great sense of media being democratized and there's a strong feeling of community in a sense that something new and important is being forged something that's it's about change the world and their arguments about regulation and clashes with authority as the rest of the world gradually wakes up to what's happening and as the number of uses grows these companies move in and everyone begins to ask how can you make money from this and sunny their ads everywhere and a handful of big companies in two in particular of ended up in dominant the positions so it sounds like you're talking about the early consumer internet and the freedom and exhilaration of the people who are on the internet and those days and then it all gets swallowed up by google and facebook well no. I wasn't talking about the internet in the early twentieth century. I was talking about a different medium in the early twentieth century radio which which ended up being dominated by c._b._s. and n._b._c. So what i want to know is how come these two very different technologies at two very different times in history evolved along such similar lines and what can that tell us about the media of tomorrow from only economist. I'm tom stanage and from sleet. I'm seth stevenson. Welcome to the secret history of the future. The story of radio starts with a young man whose boyhood hobby led to fame and fortune guglielmo marconi kony born into a wealthy family. Italy marconi was educated by private tutors and in his teenage years he was taught by professor at nearby bologna university and he taught marconi about invisible electromagnetic waves what we now call radio waves which have been discovered a few years earlier by german scientist called heinrich hits which is why the frequency of radio waves and other kinds of ways is today measured in hertz kilohertz megahertz and so on so hurts shown that these invisible radio waves existed date and he measured their properties but when someone austin bought they could be used for he said nothing and he said they were of no use whatsoever other people though including marconi saw the potential for for using them for long distance communication and in the summer of eighteen ninety four marconi embarked on a series of experiments at his parents house in which he gradually improved hurts his original experimental apparatus one night in december that year marconi invited his mother into his attic workshop to show her the results pressing a switch caused lost a bell to ring in an adjoining room about thirty feet away without the use of any connecting wires instead marconi had used a radio signal to trigger the bell over the following months marconi gradually extended the range of his equipment by refining its design and using bigger and bigger antennas. He'd soon moved the receiver outdoors into the garden. Where it was manned by his older brother alphonso he would wave a flag to indicate that he received a signal by the end of the day marconi could send radio signals more than a mile and affonso had to fire alaric gun to acknowledge successful reception. It's worth pointing out that marconi's radio could not transmit sound at this point all it could do send an owner of signal signal but that was enough in conjunction with morse code that was used on wad telegraph systems to send messages. The italian authorities were unimpressed convention so marconi went to london where he demonstrated to the british government while in britain he sent morse code messages several miles over both land and water marconi kony sent messages across the english channel eighty ninety nine and in one thousand nine hundred one. He sends signals across the atlantic. This was an impressive achievement but the most immediate practical practical use for the technology was for ship to shore and ship to ship communication rather than long distance international telegraphy which was already possible because of undersea cables dell's the marconi wireless telegraph company was soon the main provider of wireless equipment and services to both commercial and military shipping making mall company having a wealthy and famous man but the new technology also attracted the interest of hobbyists and experimenters wanted to try it for themselves particularly in the united united states where there were no restrictions on the use of wireless equipment. They weren't interested in the commercial or military uses of radio. They just wanted to have fun <music> so he began to get these little fraternities of ham operators who built their own sats and communicated with each other and and it was a very bottom up democratic system that was really quite at odds with marconi had in mind. This is susan douglas. She's a professor of communication studies at the university university of michigan. It was also way to find community. Just like you know happens on the internet today to find a community of like minded young men and boys and it it's mostly young men and boys who had the same technological interest but they also talked about sports scores and their math homework and all kinds of stuff and this was again very much at odds with how marconi in the navy wanted to use wireless and by nineteen ten it was the hams who dominated the airwaves in the united states the majority of radio stations at the time or capable of both sending and receiving though the sending range was usually much smaller than the receiving range it was a vast conversation in morse code over the airwaves open to anyone who wanted to join in tinkering with radios was promoted did a wholesome and futuristic activity for boys in particular by hugo guns back the founder of a company that started selling radio kits in one thousand nine hundred five. They've eight dollars fifty and that's equivalent to about two hundred fifty dollars today which is about what it costs to buy a video game console in an essay published in his firm sales sales catalogue guns back tried to reassure parents who might be worried about their child's interest in this strange new hobie. He argued that it was a great investment because experimenting with radio equipment would keep young boys at home away from bad influences and out of trouble that are still gerns back argued. It was a hobby hobby that would position a boy well for the future electricity and wireless or the coming undreamed of world moving forces. Don't kill the electric spark in your boy. It costs little to keep it going and some day it will pay you and your boy handsome dividends and it was nearly all boys most of the media coverage most of what you read is in fact about boys and young men. That's the group for whom technological tinkering was accepted and promoted girls. Were not supposed to be technologically. The logically <hes> experimenting or literate girls were supposed to play the piano and be lady like ineffective. These radio sets turned each city into a giant chat room home. What do you need it to join in was radio if your friend had one and showed it to you you want to in october nineteen eight electrician and mechanic magazine reported halted that wireless telegraph mania had broken out among the young men of baltimore by nineteen ten. There were hundreds of radio enthusiasts in new york and nearly a thousand in chicago by nineteen twelve back. Put the number of wireless experimenters amateurs across the united states at four hundred thousand so is it fair to say that radio yeah. This period is really a social medium absolutely it was also came to be a relatively insubordinate medium as well because the hams some of them were pretty mischievous so there was a lot of mischief and technological insurgency around this period area. This is like nineteen ten to nineteen twelve based on the kind of anti authoritarian anti establishment ethos among some of the hams
