Amid protests, media companies face reckoning with racism

"Every one of our daily Bloomberg BusinessWeek shows, Understandably, They're about thes dual pandemics, the virus and the quest for racial justice. And on this, Jason, we caught up with Lisa Ross at the public relations giant Edelman, where she is US chief operating officer. She also leads Adelman's Washington D. C office. She's president there. She also held several roles in the Clinton administration, the Labor Department and she was a member of the inaugural team of the White House office of Women's initiatives and outrage so great voice to check in with media fuels racism. 62% of all of those poll says that in covering the demonstrations against racial injustice, the news media has focused on rioting at the expense of peaceful protest. So I think that's something that people have felt. Something has been alluded to, But thiss research indicates is that actually true, the second one that there was. There's a little bit of a stench, which is Problematic that some people have to see it to believe it. So we did this research the first time in June and overwhelming numbers said that that Americans believe that systemic racism exists and overwhelming numbers says that business and brands have a responsibility to take a stand and to do something. Now when he went back into the field, So that was June, went back into the field in early August. Did it found a little bit of a dip, quite frankly, between the murder of George Ploy and early August And then when Jacob Blake was shot We went back into the field, and it went up. And so interesting that and particularly it went up in two categories. Republicans and people 55 older and so after the shooting of Jacob Blake, there was definitely an increase in the number of people who support protests. Ah, and the people who definitely thing to believe. Yes, Systemic Racism does exist, but interesting that we saw when we didn't see some of the incidences. Third ominous insists this is a space where I live. Super high expectation for business but low marks on business response today. So you know, when this first happened, everyone was making a statement. Everybody was releasing their data. Black lives matter. I stand against racism so forth and so on, and it was all attributed to the CEO. So definitely a sense all summer long appreciate the conversation. But what have you actually done that Its like, had actually done least I want to jump in. And we've we've been looking after. Have Richard to Richard. Gentlemen, join us several times to talk about this barometer on as it's you know how it has been. Certainly through the pandemic. Talk to me. You guys were at the nexus of talking to so many different CEOs. You have this high level. No conversations. I do wonder. You know, everyone's saying it's going to be different this time around, but I you know, I'd be really wealthy lady if I got a nickel for every time I heard that, you know, there are high expectations right of business to do the right thing and not just talk about okay, we're gonna do No, a focus group and we're going to do this. We're going to do that, but rather really make some change to make sure that they have a diverse workforce that they have diverse suppliers in their supply change. I mean, the's air, the things that move the needle so Are you having this high level conversations? And do you have those high hopes that things actually do change? Carol, you're spot on and everything that you've noted that saying something is one thing doing something is dramatically different and the respondent Overwhelmingly agree. So yeah. Um, I I believe that things will change because the CEO is that we're talking to are intimately concerned and involved about these issues, but to be afraid for many of them, this is uncharted territory. You know, when we first started advising many CEOs were like I want to say something. But health isn't in order, and I'm like, yes what No one's houses in order. That's why we're having the problems that we're having. But you still have to speak out. You know a lot of for CEOs. A lot of this for us is these air lived experiences for many people, and for many CEOs who are overwhelmingly white, male, mainstream Christian Straight I the list experiences. Other people seem to have does not affect them. And so in many ways they're trying to catch up culturally with what's happening in the rest of the world. Now is the intense there absolutely is their heart in the right place. Absolutely. But many of them are catching up in their learning about things, which I think is impeding some of the progress that we're making. What they're learning. I mean, where

"The latest figures from the labor department bring the total number of Americans who applied for unemployment benefits to twenty two million in the last month alone at that rate economists expect the unemployment rate to reach fifteen percent in April meeting all of the job gains since the end of the recession in two thousand nine have now been wiped out by corona virus and that will probably glow will grow from there the longer this goes the worse it's going to be we get that now is there a light at the end of the tunnel I think there is I do I think there is but it's going to be very much a step by step process each person it's gonna have to make their own decision up along with their governors on how they want to approach this I think for a lot of people there at the point now where they're starting to realize we have to get out there because it is for a I think people expected us to get to potentially fifteen percent unemployment I think they thought that would happen over several months period I didn't expect you know as I've talked to converse I didn't think they'd expect this over thirty days hi speed what a condom is yesterday whose thought process was we would have a downturn in the economy it would slowly kind of just eco long and then you start to see a little bit more layoffs here in a little bit more layoffs there and then come to August we'd be at this this point not here within thirty days people are chomping at the bit to get back to work and it's tough if your governor and your leader you're doing all that you can to keep people safe and that's you walk a much different line then you don't like trump trouble with the way that he comes out at some of this stuff is he feels very he comes across very cold and callous layers does not care about the economy and then people are like I'll usually care about people's health well now you have to care about both so she gets the care about people's health he doesn't he understand the economy because that's what people ask him about people don't ask we get this thing finished because I want everybody because they want to know when they can get their life back to normal they want to know when they can get back out there and start earning and working against some people really generally care like oh my goodness I put a lot of people it's about how can I get back to what I was before but found she and Dr birch their number one priority is the health and well being of the United States people and making sure we get through this with as little death as possible trump has to care about that but he also has to care about the economy and when you try to balance the two you're gonna come out at times sounding cold and callous and trump does not a lot he does do I think he cares about people absolutely but I also know that the economy being destroyed it it taking two three four five years or more to climb back out of this it's going to do as much damage potentially as well this could have done we still don't know what it looks like but based on the numbers were saying now based on where we're going to I think we're gonna get to that two hundred thousand two hundred forty thousand mark I don't we approaching thirty two thousand so possible we get the fifty thousand sixty and you know that is going to be over a period of time that's not gonna be tomorrow that's not that could be through August and then what happens when we have a spike do we run back into our houses people are pushing back they're pushing back in a major way case in point what's going on in Michigan Gretchen Whitmer who I still think is one of the favorites to be the vice presidential candidate for Joe Biden her profiles high they think a lot of her she's she has the to me the best qualifications because she's actually running a state but you've got Elizabeth Warren and and and Kamal Harris and Stacey Abrams all actively seeking out the position but I look at her and I think she's young enough because you got to think about the future especially with Joe and she's also in a position where she's running something people can disagree with the way she's running thanks god zero problems with that she's come down on the shelter in place to stay in place and people have had enough and they're starting to ask real questions about Hey what are you doing to us going out of our way to make this bipartisan this is not a political issue to us we would have come out and have the same protest with the Republican governor or an independent governor we just think that our civil liberties are being violated and we decided that the only way that we get our voices be heard voice one cage and basic civil disobedience yeah and so they protest it protest it because people are asking serious questions about what the hell is going on in a lot of the states in a lot of these places where you guys seem to be overstepping the constitution for for what well to protect everybody so you're willing to take away some freedoms and step on the constitution when you see fit we are witnessing the slow death of civil liberties in the name of public safety so when a drone hovers over you that is surveillance and surveillance is the search this is not me this is the Supreme Court and a surge can't go on without a search warrant do we really want to live in a society where piece of plastic and metal on this guy is going to start yelling at us because we're too close to our neighbors net and see how fast we got condition the lady who does news on my local show she's great we're chatting yesterday because she said normally on the weekends they her husband they go where they meet up with another couple they go to breakfast and they did the same thing except they got it to take away and she goes I was afraid to ask them to come back to our house and even social distance in the backyard because I was afraid I was gonna get in trouble and I said do you listen to yourself what grown **** adults and you're worried about your friends coming over to visit you is there a problem here yeah there absolutely is you're hearing about things where you can't go by certain stuff and you start looking at yourself and say my god is this what it's becoming my heart is a garden hose the date the time here people five garden hoses so I think that some of the governors have the authority to regulate for health safety and welfare have taken too much about it sorry no ticket too much civil liberties away from us question is will we get it back when this is over that's the question just appalled on a point out there will we get it back I always point to the patriot act I don't think we're gonna get it back the way the people thank and they're gonna be able to hold on to these powers for a long time eventually we'll get into a certain group and they will return to some normal way of life and will forget all about that and those things will just sit there and that is scary that is absolutely scary now cross the globe there's all kinds of stuff going on I step outside of this apartment I'm looking at six months in jail governments have been implementing lockdowns there's nobody out and asking

"The Labor Department releases the jobs report for the month of may today. What can we expect? Here's Mark Hamrick. Senior economic analyst at bankrate dot com, Mark your read on this. Well, it's a little bit of a white knuckle time now, Gordon because we've been getting some mixed signals on the economy lately in the United States. And of course, we know there is a boatload of uncertainty sailing right along these days with everything's going on the trade fraud, including now Mexico, and you might say, well as we speak, Mexican tariffs have been imposed, but this is almost paralyzing for many business leaders who you know have to weigh such efforts as business strategy, whether they invest in equipment or other investments. And of course, investing in people meaning adding jobs, and so we'll be looking to the Labor Department report for signals that this is bleeding into the real economy in the job market, because I would say that for at least a couple of years now, if not longer the job market, really has been kind of that neon light with respect to sort of advertising, the strength of the US economy, whereas some of the metrics below the surface aren't quite as robust or as favorable. And so in the previous month unemployment stood at three point six percent. It's generally thought that will keep right around that market. I think really the key is how many jobs did we add? And if we get a big shortfall there, then you start sort of questioning whether this is part of a bigger slowdown in right now. I think I, I think that we might just say that we should probably look for something lower than absolutely slower than what we saw in the previous month because that was strong. But, you know, if we got something along the range of. Hundred twenty five hundred fifty thousand I think that would tell us the economy is not growing as robustly, but still growing. All right. How about the fed factoring in here? There are some whispers that a rate cut could come sooner rather than later. So for the markets, right investors, generally like that, because it represents cheap borrowing. But, but that also could be an indication that the fed is seeing signs of a slowdown. So what, what, what could happen there, right? Well, we don't want to cheer for weakness in the economy as the foundation for getting a rate cut delivered because, you know that, that sort of is saying, oh, I hope I get sick..

Government shutdown and as we begin a new congress. I all of our colleagues both Republican and democrat to stop trying to score political points and start being productive Cornyn. Also accused the Democrats of using the shutdown for political gain, the left appears to believe that it seems a desire to, cultivate, a reputation for ruthlessness win at all costs has replaced an appetite to actually get things done rather than working with those.

"By the Labor Department is is stunning. I mean manufacturing jobs increased by thirty two thousand overall wages are rising at the fastest rate. In nearly a decade. Two hundred and fifty thousand jobs were added in October. That why they had they were predicting about one hundred ninety thousand average hourly earnings for private workers advanced three point one percent from a year earlier. That's the biggest increase year to date since the great recession. It's the twelfth record. That has been set over the economy since Trump's been president. He has had he has set twelve records. This kind of news is not fluff. It's not incidental. It's what matters to people. And I just wonder as the left as the left and the Trump haters and people are fighting desperately to give control of the congress to the Democrats on Tuesday. How do you this economic success? The and why would you hate somebody who has presided over such an economic boon? Here's chat on the Mike Gallagher show twenty six past the hour jet. I am wonderful today. Good readings from Florida. Yes. And. The reason they hate him. You just announced everything their agenda is strictly socialism, and he's proven beyond the shadow without agenda and his program that oh my God capitalism works. I mean when Obama goes around on the campaign trail and says, it's my economy. How do they not laughing out of the room Chet? That's.
