Mute Button Takes Center Stage in Debate
"And final presidential debate of wrapped up and deadly CBS reporter Steve Burns followed it from beginning to end and joins us Live for wrap up evening, Steve They leave on certainly, and more civilized affair than what we saw. With that first debate. The all important mute button I don't think became much of a factor is disagreement was expressed Maurin laughs. I rolls shaking of the head rather than interruptions between the two candidates. Topics and the lines of attack were mostly familiar. If you've been watching these two on the pandemic, President Trump's that a vaccine is weeks away, but then said he couldn't guarantee that On DH said people are learning to live with the virus. Former vice President Biden countered that saying people are learning to died with the virus and blame the president's ineptitude. For the need to shut down the country race relations and other flash point in the debate, the president teed up in attack involving Biden's 1994 crime bill, and the president called himself the least racist person in the room. Biden said parts of that 1994 bill were a mistake and mentioned President Trump's words at the last debate involving the proud boys, saying the president's dog whistle is as big as a foghorn. So definitely a wide ranging debate. I'd say night and day from the first in terms of control and substance, And now we have the finish line in sight for this race just 11 days until Election Day, leave on.
Trump says he is the "least racist person." Biden disagrees
"And Joe Biden discuss racism in America at the final debate tonight, as you heard right here on 17 Wooo are speaking in Nashville, the commander in chief said. He's the least racist person in this room. Nobody has done more for the black. Community and Donald Trump. And if you look With the exception of Abraham Lincoln. Possible exception, but the exception of Abraham Lincoln, Joe Biden's and there is institutional racism in America, and so far, the country has not lived up to the decree that all men and women are created equal. Biden says that Trump pours fuel on every racist fire having he has a dog whistle as big as a bond corn when it comes to a white supremacist groups. Biden
Trump Vs. Biden: How Russia Sees The U.S. Election
"To move on to our next section, which is national security, and I do want to start with the security of our elections and some breaking news from overnight Just last night, Top intelligence officials confirmed again that both Russia and Iran are working to influence this election. Most countries have obtained us voter registration information, these officials say. And Iran sent intimidating messages to Florida voters. This question goes to you, Mr Vice President, What would you do to put an end to this threat? You have two minutes uninterrupted. I made it clear. I asked everyone else to take the pledge. I made it clear that any country no matter who it is that interferes in American elections will pay a price. They will pay a price. Has been overwhelmingly clear this election game get into the last one. This election that Russia has been involved. China has been involved in some degree, and now we learned that that that Iran is involved. They will pay a price. If I am elected. They're interfering with American sovereignty. That's what's going on. Right now. They're interfering with American sovereignty and the best of my knowledge. I don't think the president said anything to Putin about it. I don't think he's stalking them a lot. I don't think he said a word. I don't know why he hadn't said a word to Putin about it, and I don't know what he has recently said. If anything to the Iranians, my guess is he'd probably be more out spoken with regard to the Iranians. But the point is this folks were in a situation where we have foreign Company countries trying to interfere in the outcome of our election. His old Oh, National security advisor told him that what is happening with his buddy? Well, I will his buddy Rudy Giuliani. He's being used as a Russian pawn. He's being fed information that is Russian. That is not true. And then what happens? Nothing happens. And then you find out that everything is going on here about Russia is wanting to make sure that I do not get elected the next president states because they know I know them and they know me. I don't understand why this president is unwilling to take on Putin. When he's actually paying bounties to kill American soldiers in Afghanistan when he's engaged in activities that are trying to destabilize all of NATO. I don't know why he doesn't do it, but it's worth asking the question. Why is it that being done any country interferes with us will in fact, a price because they're affecting our sovereignty? President Trump. Same question to you. Let me let me ask the question. You have two minutes to respond for two elections in a row. Now there has been substantial interference from foreign adversaries. What would you do in your next term? To put an end to this two minutes? Let me respond to the first part as Joe answer, Joe got $3.5 million from Russia. And it came through Putin because he was very friendly with the former mayor of Moscow, and it was the mayor of Moscow's wife. And you got $3.5 million. Your family got $3.5 million in You know, someday you're gonna have to explain. Why did you get through to him? I never got any money from Russia. I don't get money from Russia. Now, about your thing last night. I knew all about that and threw John who is John Radcliffe was fantastic DNA, he said. The one thing that's common to both of them. They both want you to lose because there has been nobody tougher to Russia with between the sanctions, nobody tougher than me on Russia. Between the sanctions between all of what I've done with nature. You know, I've got the NATO countries to put up an extra 130 billion going to $420 billion a year. That's to guard against Russia. I sold while he was selling pillows and sheets. I sold tank busters to Ukraine. There has been nobody tougher. On Russia than Donald Trump. And I'll tell you they were so bad they took over the the submarine port. You remember that very well during your term during you and Barack Obama. They took over a big part of what should have been Ukraine. You handed it to him. But you were getting a lot of money from Russia. They were paying you a lot of money, and they probably still are. But now with what came out today, it's even worse. All of the e mails, the emails, the horrible e mails of the kind of money that you were raking in you and your family. And Joe you a vice president, when some of this was happening, and it should have never happened, And I think you owe an explanation to the American people. Why is it somebody just had a news conference a little while. Ago who was essentially supposed to work with you and your family. But what he said was damning. And regardless of me, I think you have to clean it up and talk to the American people. Maybe you could do it right now. Ice President Biden. You may respond visions and I don't want to follow up on the election security. I have not taken a penny from any foreign source ever in my life. We learn with this president. Paid 50 times The tax in China as a secret bank account with China does business in China and in fact is talking about me taking money? I have not taken a single penny from any country. What so ever ever number one number two This is a president. I have released all of my tax returns. 22 years go look at them. 22 years of my tax returns. You have not released a single solitary year of your tax returns. What are you hiding? Why are you on Willie? The foreign countries are paying you a lot. Russia is paying you a lot Chinese paying a lot on your hotels and all your businesses all around the country all around the world and China is building a new road to a new guy. Ah, a golf course you have overseas. So what's going on here? Why don't release your tax return to stop talking about corruption. President Trump you're
FAA Admin logs some 737Max time
"So the administrator went flying. This is okay. I I like this story on a number of a levels. I don't know one of you may turn out to be the sinecure. All right but I like the story on a couple of so what? Mr Carteris. Yeah I know right I didn't want to name names, but that's what I figured about how I figured. It would play out So you know. The Boeing seven thirty-seven Max is still rounded but getting closer and closer to returning to the skies, the Francisco Franco all of Of Aircraft. and. And clearly I mean I'm no I'm not naive obviously this was a big publicity thing. All right. The the administrator of the FAA a conducted in evaluation flight. The pictures I showed should him in in less so? To the extent I'm going to be cynical about this. The one thing I'm questioning is the administrator the as really checked out in a seven thirty seven to fly the left I believe that's correct. Yeah. He he I think he other type he's a former airline pilot. Okay. Has a seven three typewriting. And if he does have a later model type rating for the seventy three. He's eligible the service. That airplane. So clearly, the FAA wants to demonstrate that the seven thirty seven is is safe and or you know and is is is deserving of of returning into flight service, and so they did a thing where now the story I have posted here is actually from before he said that he's going to do this thing but apparently it's been it's heads happened right on this this flight took place and because I think I've seen a story that talked about it after he and he got some Sim time before the well that's smart too that smart too. So his bio at FAA website says. A former Delta director global flight operations or Senior Vice President of flight operations for Delta Airlines. flew fluid line operations as as three twenty captain and previously flew the seven, two, seven, seven, three, seven, seven, five, seven, and seven, six seven. What that tells me as he never made captain on the seven three but he was a captain on the twenty Okay so So anyways, I like this story I think you know I mean it's it's smart marketing it's you know and it's kind of play pleasure I don't know what's the right word is but that we have an administrator who actually can fly airplanes, which is not always the case not always occurred and so so you know I I of got a little warm fuzzy about. starring. In. The best way I mean that. Going there. Okay well, we're will you go JEB. What do you think about this or dude? I was a pure pr stat. Of course it's a PR stunt, but you know I mean, it's a good pr stunned had done well, and and and it's not. You know I know it's a PR stunt, but it's not cynical PR stunt. They're trying to revive this airplane which. I don't disagree with that. and. There's so much to say but. Yeah one of the things that I caught and the aftermath. Is that. He still wouldn't sign off on the airplane. We're not quite ready yet. Well, then what was the purpose of the stunt? Timing may have been wrong, right? That's an interesting point. Now, fly it, fly the day before the day of you give it its walking papers give it. It's it's airworthiness certificate back you know Hey, I just flew the airplane is great here I'm signing the paperwork now. Yeah. Well, that kind of thing. So it looks a little phony to you know it's kind of like a well. I'm not sure which is looks phonier be honest weeping. So. David what do you think about the administrator flying the airplane? Well, I. Think it was Absolutely necessary I off. A long time ago in this saga has been going on for what? Eighteen months coming up on two years since the first crashes. That's true and. Longtime ago the administrators said that He would himself fly the airplane before it was returned to approve for return to service so From the perspective of promise made promise. Kept he fulfilled a promise? At a good thing. Was it a publicity stunt? Absolutely unless the guy was. There to do some data taking for the return to service flight tests but it was a good pr stunt. It it has some some value in that. Here's a guy who really knows the business knows his way around the cockpit. Getting some time in an airplane, it's had a troubled history. Did that, get it to the point of coming back to service no. There's still a lot that the FAA wants to get clear on and they are also working with other regulators from other countries who have grounded the airplane themselves Canada, the European Union. Brazil. There's a lot. The kind of go into this return to service enters a lot of stuff steak and I think the last thing any of these airworthiness authorities WanNa have happened is. Say Yep Yep we're good to go. You can start putting them back into service, which is problematic, and there's going to be a whole lot of pilots going to need to be brought up to speed in a recurrent training for them. Before that happens but. To have some little glitch come along. Right after you return it to service will doom this airplane forever I mean it's definitely going to be smooth no question Scott to be Smith I don't. Disagree with anything you, just said. except well, I would simply point out. that. I'm not sure that the return of the seven three is going to make or break any airlines It's GonNa make or break. Boeing. Yeah. But given the. Severe Downturn right in passenger demand over the last several months. and airlines have been doing fine making do with what they have. Be They've been retiring a number of aircraft or just parking them because the demand is not sufficient to keep them up and running it. All of a sudden. Now, we're going to have a glut of I don't know how many hundreds of of seven thirty seven Max is that are ready to go again. Big. Whoop. WHO's going to be flying.
Philadelphia - Pennsylvania’s naked ballot problem, explained
"The state Supreme Court recently ruled that naked ballots will not be counted. Katie Myer has been covering this issue in Pennsylvania from member station W Y Y in Philadelphia. Hey there, Katie. Hey, how many other states have similar requirements like this? It turns out 16 states require secrecy ballots, so the one ballot inside of another type of thing. And AH couple. Other states give counties the option to use them if they want, But it's It's a minority of states that do this stuff, and it's kind of unclear. You know how strictly a lot of this stuff is enforced, but a couple of experts I talked to just to get a sense of the situation, said a ruling like Pennsylvania's That says, you have to invalidate ballots if they don't have the secrecy envelope. That's pretty rare. One of the challenges here is that Pennsylvania is a state that's pretty new to the broader mail in voting. Do we have a sense of how many people did this The wrong way? Didn't put their ballot into two different envelopes during this summer's primary. Yeah, it's difficult to get a really accurate number. But we did have sort of, you know a red flag raised from the Philadelphia County commissioners and they're the ones in charge of elections and what they said Wass, based on The numbers of people they've gotten in the past who screwed up the ballot and didn't use the secrecy envelope. They kind of extrapolated that out and said If similar percentages across the state mess it up, we could be looking at around 100,000 ballots being invalidated, and that's the reason my people are kind of freaked out about this because you'll recall back in 2016. President Trump won Pennsylvania by only 44,000 votes. So it is, you know, not an enormous number of ballots, but it is. Ah, definitely big enough to change how you know the election goes in Pennsylvania and you know, as Pennsylvania goes, it's very likely. So goes the country. Right, So that's the steaks here. We're talking about Pennsylvania's probably the most important state, especially for Democrats if they want to keep Trump from from getting 270 electoral votes. I think the third factor here that's worth talking about, and why so many Democrats have freaked out about this possibility is the fact that Democrats So far seem to be much more interested in voting by mail, right? Yeah, that is true, And it's been borne out by polling that we've seen what happens next. What sort of Plans are out there, too, to avoid that worst case scenario, So first of all, I'll say that it's always possible. You know, there's a lot of court challenges flying around. There's a lot of legislative stuff being discussed. It's always possible that something could change. But it looks very likely that this is the reality that we are going to have when the election hits. Really What's up to Democrats. Now? This is what they're already doing is they're trying to just let voters know that this is going to be the case that their ballots will be discarded if they're missing the secrecy envelope. It's been a fairly robust education campaign. They're putting out little videos on social media. They're paying for ads. They are sending out mailers. Things like that. And, you know experts I've talked to say voters from both parties. Screw up their ballots at very, very similar rates, so it's not like Democrats have some sort of innate disadvantage here again. This is seen as a problem for Democrats just because Democrats are more likely to vote by mail period. Katie Myer covering politics for W. H Y in Philadelphia. Thank you very much. Thanks.
New York City To File Lawsuit Over 'Anarchist‘ Label, Alongside Seattle
"Administration's Administration's in in Night Night and and a a particular particular term term that's that's floating floating around around and and being being used used to to tighten tighten the the screws screws on on the the Big Apple. Julia Papa says. The whole thing is leading up to a pretty big legal set down our showdown that includes New York and at least two other city mayor De Blasio says President Trump is making things up specifically the anarchist label. He's giving New York City It's morally wrong. It's legally unacceptable. It's unconstitutional and we're going to fight the anarchist designation now in play against Seattle, Washington and Portland, Oregon as well. City attorney James Johnson is joining with them to suit their stepping way over their bounds. Congress controls the power of the purse, not the Trump administration. And yet they're stepping into the congressional space. He cited additional legal grounds but says they want to stop the White House from using the label to withhold as much as $12 billion in federal grants. Earmarked for New York. Juliet Papa

Trump violates agreement and releases "60 Minutes" interview
"Footage of his interview with CBS's 60 Minutes. The president posted the nearly 40 minute clip to his Facebook page with the caption Look at the bias, Hatred and rudeness on behalf of 60 Minutes and CBS. President Trump sat down with CBS News correspondent Lesley Stall on Monday for a segment that slated to air this coming Sunday night. In this exchange stall asked the president about his views on wearing masks, but I can't believe after what happened in the Rose Garden here after the announcement with all the people getting sick That you are not being more strongly encouraging about wearing massive around people When you don't Leslie, we hand out thousands of masks look out, and they're not wearing them. And you don't say Please put on using looking yesterday. Take a look at, uh, take a look yesterday in Arizona. Everybody behind me. But I'm looking at other places. I'm looking at Wisconsin, which is a hot spot right now, Right? A lot of people a lot of people that was outside and you don't get up there and say Look, you know, Come on. I want you in that question, Lis. We were outside. Rallies are bigger than they've ever been. There's more enthusiasm than we've ever had. There has never been anything like what you're witnessing now and you'll see that soon, Okay? But I'm asking about masks, Not about the size of your rallies. I'm asking why commented on the size of that right now, But it's not as big as they used to be. And I'm telling you, they're much bigger. Okay, but I'm asking you now about the masks. Why aren't you getting up there and saying I had it. I don't want you to get it. So let's put your mask handout masks to everybody that comes to the rally. We tell them to wear the mask. You don't and they love you. If they heard you say it, I have No problem. They love you. They would next question anything you said. Okay. I hope you're right. President Trump later abruptly ended the interview with stall before a scheduled joint interview with vice president Pence in a statement, CBS News says that The quote White House's unprecedented decision to disregard their agreement with CBS News and released their footage will not deter 60 minutes from providing it's full fare and contextual reporting. Unquote that airs this Sunday.
COVID-19 in Victoria, Australia
"Gratified Friday that's right. Twenty third of Tober pardon the PUN number really pushing towards the grand finale Victoria in terms of stamping out the lost. Stubborn pots of coronavirus is still spreading down there. Yes, and there's clearly still virus around in the northeast corridor. Expected of totally disappeared from there and the pop up clinic, and that's that's the way it's going to go forward US way it's going New South Wales in Swiss going to go forward in Victoria and it's a good thing that they're onto its and jumping onto things quickly. So what we're looking forward to on Sunday from Andrews hopefully is certainly moving forward the restriction relaxations he talked about November I this weekend, but I suspect you might see but more than that in terms of. Restaurants spars that sort of thing where you just might see a speeding up or much more much better defined pathway to those opening up in the near future because Victoria is in pretty good shape we did he gets day battle outbreak in a housing block area in Melbourne is this just like we don't need a look down to get on top of those riot if the public health machine is working better now than it was before the and also if you've got the community onside and they're willing to cooperate because the realized the implications of very much larger knock time. So it's the fuel for the fires. When people are living in densely populated circumstances so it could spread incredibly quickly. So going to get on top to get on top of it quickly, but the capacity to do so is much better and there's less distraction around in Victoria. There's a lot of distraction around when you those terrible outbreaks in addition to the other outbreaks in abattoirs and elsewhere in Victoria there's. A lot going on towards the last time there outbreaks in those densely populated towerblocks these days the capacity is there to focus more and have fewer distractions around because there's so much less virus circulating the virus is circulating you know where it's come from right and so I sort of moving towards our kind of steady state of figuring out our relationship with this virus here. And hopefully, looking at opening up our internal borders at some stage in the near future. WHAT ABOUT INTERNATIONAL BORDERS? There's still lots of Australians overseas. There's. All. Students. WanNa come here. Tourism operators here are really struggling and I'm sure there's some. Really want to go overseas as well. WH- should've reopening paddle clack for Ustralia more broadly. Well, it's a very complicated landscape. You Go to feel for these thirty odd thousand students who went back many of them are quite unwell. Don't be exposed to covid nineteen in the places where they're at and they desperately want to get home to their families and they feel cut off. The problem is that we tend to have a one-size-fits-all to our overseas entries and it should be possible to open up a more strategic way if the politics would allow it and I'm not blaming the politicians here is a difficult situation and you've got to do something about stranded. Australians. Overseas. But a lot of them are in countries which have a high prevalence of SARS covy to like the UK European, the US and places like that. Tends to be where strain school some of them are in Asia and lower prevalence countries. So when you're sending a Qantas plane over to London to pick up people, you're bringing back in the plane presumably, they could take three or four hundred people bringing back hundred and seventy five because the crews got to be protected and the people on board to be protected bear in mind that all of the tens of thousands of who've already. Return the only been three or four hundred infections in. Australia. Yes. We hear about the movie dates true but it's low numbers trouble with that is as we've seen Victoria, you only need one episode of escape from Whole Hotel, it's not the family escaped by the virus did circumstances and you've got a real problem on your hands. So the risk is high, but the risk is particularly high when you're bringing back people from high prevalence countries. You've got a lot of international students in China. You'd have to exclude those in India because that's a high prevalence country but China is a low prevalence country. The should be a way of bringing back international students quite soon from China with judicious testing intensive testing, maybe limited quarantine with intensive testing, and there are ways of doing that but perhaps turning over halls of residence colleges to their limited quarantine that you might. Introduce Singapore certainly New Zealand. Pacific. Islands that you could open up these places quite quickly, and of course, if a stranger stranded there, those would be your first priority. You could probably stand up on this plane over and fill it up particularly wear masks and bring it back with a far more than one hundred, seventy, five on board, and almost a full complement of passengers. Because the risk is so low, so should be possible to a risk adjusted system where for safe areas, you have one way of managing it and from high-risk is another and this probably no alternative if you're living in the UK or Europe and want to get back to coming back on a on a very low load plane. So this is different to travel bubble. Is that it's a bit more like you still have to quarantine, but it's just not does we don't have to have as high stringency because the risk is lower it needs a lot of thought it's not straightforward and the highest priority has to be stranded strings overseas. It's just intolerable that we don't solve that problem and it's a bipartisan shoes not party political but equally. Doing. This, which minimizes the risk from already low-risk countries. The should be a way to manage risk more carefully an a nuanced way depending on where people are coming from. So it's not an open bubble, but it is a lower intensity of corn team. So let's take some questions from audience and what better way to rip through a few to do him as a quickfire Friday round you ready ready to go now. Jeffries asking you mentioned the other day that masks need to be washed at sixty degrees Celsius to make sure the virus free but domestic hot water services limited to fifty degrees. So I wanted to be hand washing his cloth masks in water hated in the kettle or what I think that random mackel worked find that sixty degrees was what did the work but you'll find that detergent in warm water should do it the same way it's just that extended washing cycle I think. So fifty degrees, sixty degrees who knows whether it makes any difference the. Point that Ryan McIntosh was making here is a quick rinse in the hand basin. There's not enough specimens a farmer and wants to know why if humans contracted card from animals? Why are the mammals supposedly don't get the virus and has anyone bothered to test shaped cattle pigs and so on record low testing of animals corona there's a lot of coronavirus infection in animals. Pigs get a similar co diseased covid nineteen, and in fact, there is a pig vaccine as far as I'm aware to a respiratory syndrome similar to covid nineteen, but it's not SARS coffee to. are lower than will species have been tested and not find to carry this dogs can be infected but don't seem to retain the virus very well whereas cat. stew. Agricultural, animals don't seem to be a big problem to corona virus is prevalent in lots of different species. This person's flying to dial in from CD next week's visit family added about it. What precautions should they take for the flight? Well, I think for any flight my view is that you should wear a mask threat flight and just be careful about hygiene and Qatar saves on Colonel Cast a few days ago when you flush the toilet. Religious so you don't have an erase allies. And I think this question is asking about sewage testing how can test for the virus with all those millions of latest of water and other chemicals and just take a small test tube and still be able to identify the virus Yup it's mind boggling but they're able to genetically to actually look for the fragments of the virus I think that this is done with antibodies that pickup the virus, and then lie top when they've picked up the. Joys a big fan of Corona cast and her son is a paramedic in London and has had a very mild case of covid nineteen. But she's heard recently that everyone who gets five nineteen has long lasting effects in the front of their brain. Is this true please cleared up her because she's worried you can stop worrying Joe it's far from through a percentage of people do get long-term. Effects. And it's really not known yet what the percentage is, but it's not the of people and one more question Norman Magin one infectious person walks into a room with ten others spends a considerable amount of time seven, get the virus and three. Why don't those three becoming victim? Is it because I got better immune systems probably just the play of chance, but it could be that you've got some genetic. To the virus always somebody in society with a new virus, who's got genetic resistance to that virus by the play of chance, these are mysteries to which we don't know could be that they just didn't inhale quite as many viral particles as others who knows it is a difficult question hasn't indeed uses it. Just another one of the many mysteries that still surround covid nineteen
Senate Judiciary Committee Authorizes Subpoenas for Twitter and Facebook CEOs
"The Judiciary Committee actually has subpoenaed the CEOs of Facebook and Twitter. It wants them to come up and testify about allegations that they have suppressed a story about 100. Biden's business dealings with Ukraine. The news comes his Facebook is seeking new ways to monetize It's WhatsApp unit. Scarlet Food. Fu is here with Mohr. So Scarlett how the stocks doing Well, the stocks are down overall and you can see the big tech is really getting hit from all sides earlier this month, it was by the Democratic controlled House Antitrust committee and, of course today from the Republican led Senate Judiciary Committee. And what today's action means is that Lindsey Graham, who's the chairman of this committee, is now clear to move forward with issuing subpoenas to Mark Zuckerberg and to Jack Dorsey and really force them to testify. Over the decisions to limit sharing of New York Post articles about Joe Biden son Hunter Biden. There's been no date set yet, but both are scheduled already to explain their content policies next Wednesday before a different Senate committee. So the backdrop here is that after years of being left alone by Washington, especially in the early days, Big Tech is now constantly looking over his shoulder, and it's stuck in the crosshairs of lawmakers and regulators so no real surprise that it has had to increase its spending on lobbying. Facebook, for instance, spent $16 million in 2019 $10 million so far this year. But all that is kind of a drop in the bucket when you compare it to how much it has in cash. Facebook had $58 billion in cash last fiscal year cash in short term investments. Meantime, you mentioned the other headline. Their Facebook is lining up a potential payout for its WhatsApp unit, the messaging service. Rather than selling ads. Facebook wants to offer its business users a cloud service that allows him to soar and keep their interactions their messages with their customers. This next phase after that, Would include payments to allow customers to buy products directly from businesses on WhatsApp. And really, this is a significant shift for Facebook, which makes almost all its money. They're really targeted niche advertising. That's not to say that it won't pursue that, necessarily. But if looking into different options, and of course, a backdrop for all of this is that social media big technology has done very well during the pandemic. Seemed as kind of utilities more than anything else, although in the lead up to the election, there's a lot of concern over the role that they play in influencing how people think about candidates and how they vote. So Scarlett, and let's be
Forget Antitrust Laws. To Limit Tech, Some Say a New Regulator Is Needed.
"Story out of the New York Times on the big tech companies and whether or not antitrust law can actually handle what needs to be done with these big companies who can't existing law handle entered. You need some sort of new organization that can react quickly. Chuck. I want to make comparisons the financial industry because obviously we both operate in it, and it is incredibly heavily regulated. Could you imagine a cross I public private industry like Finn Ra popping up to regulate the tech industry. And am I completely misreading how that would work. Why I don't I don't think it's necessary. A I I I look at it and I say, you know they are. There are existing rules that can be dealt with. But I think it is also a fair critique that it does take You know the sea and the the FTC years to put things into place and sometimes private organizations that are looking As a regulatory body for the entire industry can sometimes act faster. I guess where I from where I sit. Like what if you are What's the incentive leg again? To this point? There still has been no major regulatory push, like the Google thing. Okay, like we'll see where it goes. But like If I'm one of these companies, all of my lobbying money is paid off with no real regulation for me, So why would I voluntarily build it when I could just spend the money to avoid the regulation? I'm not thinking that the companies are going to propose it. But I'm wondering if it's necessary from a government perspective to create something new. I I'm skeptical. Well, that's me. Fair enough.
Jason Capra, C-53 Restorer, Discusses His Latest Restoration
"We're talking about fifty three's horse because you've got one that that you've been heavily involved in in restoring. Can You? Let us sit back put our feet up and just tell us the story of this particular airplane and Maybe even backtrack a little bit sort of how you how you came across it what was the path that led you to it, and then the airplanes history itself yeah. That'd be more than happy to so just I've been lucky enough to be involved with another organization and warbirds Incisa teenager, and that was the Berlin airlift historical foundation They have this fifty four spirit of freedom. which unfortunately was just written off due to a tornado passed down in North Carolina. But I was I was lucky to be involved with that and be around Douglas Prop liners in big airplanes warbirds since I was a teen about fourteen or fifteen. So I I've been on the airshow circuit and I had been flying with Tim on that airplane and working on it. So I really got a really good hands on experience on working on these things. And I just so happen to be on my way home from Ground School for my airline that I fly for about five years ago. Now, her now I'm sorry, six years ago. And I was driving back to Pittsburgh and just got tired of being on the interstate. So I started taking all these backroads just trying to get lost. and seeing what I could find stumble across and ended up coming through this little town in Ohio called beach. City Ohio. And came around the bend and there's a grass airstrip sitting there and Kinda like flying community. There's houses with hangers attached to the. And then down at the end of the airport where the road parallels the runway there was. About twenty open air hangars that were in deplorable shape with their rotting away underneath of them. And right on the other side of that hanger was this DC three just. Basically, you know it's painted been oxidized and was turned powder, and there was mold growing on it and just windows were laminated didn't fogged over and the fabric honor flight controls were torn and it was just about the saddest thing I think I've ever seen in my life. And knowing that that airplane deserved better and I always joked about me and I'd love to find one of those barns. Fine words. You know it's kind of a dream for some of us out there that maybe one day you'd be Lucky enough to stumble across something like that. And and and here's this DC three that I know nothing about that clearly hasn't flown in ages. And I pulled off to the side of the road and walked over and walked around it and just everything about it just broke my heart and you could tell, and we always talk about these old airplanes having souls but this thing. This thing was crying out for helping and I cure it and I don't know why but right then and there I just kind of looked at the airplane and I said don't worry old girl. I'M GONNA I'm GonNa do something help you And When I left that day I was on a mission to track down the guy who. Owned it or whoever owned it, and I was going to try and see if there was something we could do to save. And that's pretty much how that started. Did you ever think that. You'd you'd actually own something like this I mean this is the spree a significant. Did you ever think you'd actually make it happen? no. I always thought I would own award and and have an organization of some such but My sites were being set on either a bt thirteen or maybe a cheese six. something a little bit more manageable and definitely a lot smaller. But it was just one of those things that I. You know has been working with Tim in the C fifty four for so long and I saw how essentially three or four dedicated people could make a four engined douglas work. And I thought well, if I could get two or three dedicated people, there's no reason we couldn't make a DC three work is half the size. And Tim always said that you know in his words he said anybody can operate a DC three if you have a little bit of knowledge and. He always said there's hope for you to on day. It was a joke. You know what? I he was right, and here we go. So we're going to give us shot so. That's awesome. So so what was the next step? How did you go about tracking down the owner? So I actually went on the FAA's website and just typed in the on number and. and. Sure. Enough. It came up with the gentleman's name is name was Ken Joseph. And So I saw that he lived in the Akron area somewhere. So then I just googled Ken Joseph Akron Ohio. And every Joseph that popped up I just blindly called and asked if they were the individual that on the DC three at the Beach City Airport. So it took me about three weeks to get hold of him and actually got a hold of his son I and he put me in touch with him. and. I just asked if I could come out and talk with them about the airplane and and take a look at it more in depth than I already did. And he agreed to that and he didn't know. Anything very much about the history of the airplane prior to it being the east to be the governor's airplane of the State of Ohio. And that was about the end of his knowledge is to what it was where it was. But obviously, I, I saw from the data plate inside when I went in that it was built an accepted on January nineteen forty two. Something like listening definitely has some combat history military history and nobody's seemingly knows what that is. I'm going to have to dive into that and find out. But So, after I talked with Ken for a while I told him I said, would you ever be interested in selling this? And he said, no, not at all I've had this airplane for since nineteen ninety three and he's like multiple people ask me all the time and I'm just not interested. and Said Okay and I said, well, let me tell you of the one of the other airplanes I fly and work on and. Were give me a chance I. I would do my best in in hyphen very confident that we would be able to give it a retirement that. This this other airplane I fly has and I think that's what she deserves and I think that's probably what you would like to see happen to it. I. Just need you to give me a chance. So we went back and forth for about a month or two and finally called me and said, all right. Here's the deal. I'll sell you the airplane for one hundred, thousand dollars. It comes with to spare engines. And you've got one year to come up with the the total balance of the airplane, you can put whatever you WANNA put down on it as collateral. But if you don't have the money by this time a year from now. I keep the airplane and your money. Wow that's a harder. The race was on to. The race was on to make it happen.
UCL Shock-tar for Real Madrid
"Start, we don meltdown in Madrid thaw shocked shocked by we'd be so good and Writers. Joining us is Alex Kirkland Alex. Let's get right into it. What happened. I mean what happened was a disastrous five minutes of POCO from. Real. Madrid that I saw from them was one of the worst. I can remember to be honest it was a defensive horror show off against the shack talk team who let's not forget what may say six first choice players and a number of substitute says well, row without second reynolds the CAP team at it was just they fell off the conceding that I go they went completely to pieces gossamer spend back in the second off and pulled it back to three to lake your ruled out but that one make any once again just how bad they were in that I just bad. The. Made. Some big decisions with a view towards the classical at the weekend. He leaves out and he got lauded for leaving out crews and Ben's. Alex, I'm going to give him the benefit of the doubt a tiny bit because I say, Hey, it shocked are minus six. You're at home you're motivated because you had a stinker last week and against God and deserve to lose. Maybe this is a Good Game Benza and crows today off right. The problem is when Bensimon doesn't play the team, just don't function in attack a loop. Yovich again, last night he had one pray tame header on saw and that was the throughout the day and he was. As. Roma, chasing the comeback which tells you everything you need to know cross you could understand may be giving him a a great by the problem is with Raimondo ready missing can you really leave out these other subpoenas if the of the team nine know the Ramos isn't always a nice consistent defend that but you have to heat has been that he's got a slight meet problems. He wouldn't have let the game just get away from the way didn't stop and the this. I mean Rafael Veran. Dreadful and this is the session dreadful Champions League game in a row for him because let's not forget he was to blame but both goals they began. In the summer alongside etta mealy Tout Stewart looks nothing like being worth fifty million euros around with Chip Light Volume Marcello I love Marcelo it to be honest like. An ex player he kind of jumped the shark awhile ago. s the Monday was laid out. Position was appropriate. You want to go away with any any credit on the right hand side courtois, dot them out of trouble a couple times it wasn't just the tall maitree chances and took them. Three one on ones the coach manager save over the course of the nineteen minutes. So it could have been even worse I mean less season they lost. The game of the Champions League in Paris they had a really rocky start. This is didn't. On yeah, they came back. They weren't playing Schachter. Owner but let me finish this. Season so I don't think. A rocky a shaky start like this one is anything new for Sodano, for the club however I you Janis making mistakes I think the players only are not up to the task mentally physically and technically as a group not forget didn't sign anyone in the summer. A few of the players left Bahamas pressure is really under Alex because he's done of course and everything that he's achieved as a player and manager that club is huge but that's two defeats in a row obese two different competition, and then the classic the weekend will happen if they lose is three in a row. Or do you still think that still has enough credit in the bank to two last regardless of what happens on the weekend? Of course, he's calling credit in the bank. He's got more credit than anyone because what you've done by do you think he doesn't situation is somewhat unique because even though he's won two titles as a coach, even though you on those three genders lease in a row, there are still some nagging questions I think and legitimate questions about aspects of of the jump that he does and some people and least includes people at the club at Rome Madrid at the. Question exactly how good coaches to spy everything that he's not in terms of trophies one I don't think there's any risk of him being sacked in the short sample, but we'd see Dan would say is that you can never entirely ruled out the rescue him deciding to walk away if things aren't going well, and if he feels like he's not the right man for the joke is surprised when away lost time having just wonder champion slate a milk expect that to happen right now by. Signing the we can discount entirely. This is very different. Coach doesn't necessarily need you get. He doesn't need it in the same way that other coaches to. Feels like I say he's not the right map for the talk. If you will I I completely agree that he would walk like getting say like Oh goodness can go I mean. Again he said like tomorrow is GonNa be Sunny. Who who can come up with you feel I listen I would point out that when he walked away last time, it's because two of his superstars neither films there anymore both of through. Hissy, fits through toys out of the Pram after the game and he said I. Have enough of that.
John Gorman Discusses the Use of Opportunity Zones to Address Social Determinants
"To the healthcare policy podcast on the host. David. Intra Cosso. During this podcast saw discussed efforts to address social determinants of health with John Gorman chairman of the nightingale partners and founder and former Executive Chairman of Gorman Health Group. John Welcome to the program. Thanks David. Great to be here. especially with another native DC guy here most welcome John's by is, of course, posted on the podcast website. Briefly on background, the ongoing covid nineteen pandemic has exposed. The country's failed to adequately address the social determinants of health. Generally defining health access and quality education, economic circumstances, food security, social conditions, and environmental factors. It is estimated that where people live work and socialize determines as much as sixty percent of their health status. Whereas formal medical care accounts for just ten percent. For example concerning. Circumstances forty years of wage stagnation among lower income earners has left forty five percent of working age Americans. With either no health care insurance for insurance without a pocket expenses so high. They avoid sinking care went for example, they developed covid nineteen related symptoms. Healthcare policy makers have slowly begun to take an interest in addressing sto ages as a way to improve health delivery by increasing increasing appropriate utilization and reducing costs. For example, Medicare, advantage plans which enroll more than one third of all Medicare beneficiaries have recently been given regulatory authority to offer Ma benificiary supplemental benefits beyond medical care such as mail deliveries, home modifications, and Personal Care Services. With beginning, discuss, addressing, social determine, specifically use of what are termed opportunities zones. Again. John Gorman. So Jon with that as background. Louis. Begin by asking if you could provide a brief overview of nightingale. Sure David Nangle partners is one of these weird opportunities zone funds that came out of trump's big tax giveaway bill It was actually Cory Booker's program that was designed to encourage investment in real estate and disadvantaged communities and I was sitting on my ass retired last spring and got a notification that the irs had just completely revamped the rags to allow opportunities own capital to be used not just for real estate investment. But also for leases one portly for working capital or for meeting the business requirements of a new company inside one of the nine thousand roughly nine thousand opportunities zones around the country and those opportunities owns David are all. Severely, economically disadvantaged and more importantly medically underserved, and because the irs allowed now opportunities own capital to be used for working capital for meeting business requirements. That's what opened the door to allow us to use opportunities on Capitol to make large scale investments in social determinants of health intervention. So nightingale partners with insurers with health systems with large medical groups to finance design launch, and where necessary execute on our goals to improve. The quality of care for vulnerable populations. In this country, a lot of people like to say and I love it that we packed a Republican billionaire tax shelter in order to improve care for black drought people on that gets me up every morning. Sir Thank you. So this as you noted, this was a provision in the December seventeen tax bill. Specifically page one, hundred, and thirty. This was picked up this previous legislation as you noted, that as you mentioned senator from New Jersey Cory Booker but also the South Carolina African American Republican, the only one Tim Scott. So this is picked up in the tax bill previous legislation and you mentioned the nine thousand. So these are census tracts that meet this low income community criteria wrote and then explain to me. Governors than have to select a discrete number. That could benefit from this. Tax Advantage program is that correct doubts correct and there was a little bit of mischief but some of the governors in the designation of some of those areas and there's been, you know some gamesmanship with this story like you know Chris Christie, the former governor of New Jersey is. Used an opportunity zone fund open up frigging LAUNDROMAT. In Asbury, Park with Bruce, springsteen cats not the kind of stuff that we do. I'm not surprised to hear that I guess the former governor is a is obsessed with. Mr Asbury Park and again just so on. Understand better more clearly, this is the tax advantage here is that by investing the capital gains on your investment, you can avoid paying the. Twenty three percent the capital gains tax and that basically. Sure go ahead, go ahead. Well, basically, the way it works is that if you invest money or capital gains in and opportunities zone and you leave it in for at least ten years, not only is the initial investment completely tax free but then all of the proceeds that you make on that investment are completely tax free. So high net worth individuals. And family offices large corporations the generate large amounts of capital gains love this program, and indeed it opened up about six point two trillion dollars in available capital based on the amount of capital gains that we generate in our economy. So of that amount, David Roughly a hundred billion dollars has been invested thus far into opportunities zones off. The roughly eight months programs operate. And again, the idea is the long leave the money and means completely tax free for ten years out of step seven years you pay are you're eighty five percent excuse but I know that that number surprises me would you say this this this one, hundred, billion, his far more than was estimated when the legislation was passed. No I think it's probably rolling out slower than A lot of folks had hoped and as you can imagine, the vast majority of those deals that have been done thus far has been around real estate and real estate redevelopment certainly in the healthcare sector I think we're still the only firm out here. That's a healthcare focus opportunities on fund it. You know it we've been the only ones to my knowledge. So we're you know we're granted here, but we have yet even break a billion, but we're that's our goal.
Justice Department Hits Google With Antitrust Lawsuit
"Few weeks ago we were all on pins and needles expecting a lawsuit from the US federal government against Google and on Tuesday after a fourteen month. Long investigation that lawsuit arrived the US Department. Of Justice and eleven states have filed suit against Google arguing that the company has used unfair practices to preserve its search and search advertising monopoly. Here to break all the details down with me, records Peter Kafka Hey Peter hit Teddy. So how a deal is this is a very big deal. This is the most consequential antitrust action against a big Tech Company that we've seen since nineteen ninety, eight I don't know what you are doing in one thousand, nine, hundred, eight I was actually still falling technology news back. Then that's when that's when the US government sued. And we've gone twenty plus years, and now we've got the government's suing Google and we knew that this was coming for a while right and we talked about on the show with Shrink Afari a few weeks ago we didn't have specifics we didn't exactly know. What the lawsuit was going to allege that Google's done you've spent the morning digging in talking to a bunch of parties reading the suit tell me what the main argument, the US federal government is making. So I'm going to caveat this. This is the beginning of a process that's going to take years, and so the initial complaint from from the US government. Is the initial complaint it is going to change over time through discovery. Okay. people are going to add to this. It's going to be a living document as we say, but the big picture here is is this to start with the US government saying Google has an illegal monopoly and search that it maintains it focuses mostly on the idea of Google paying. Mobile, phone manufacturers like apple like Samsung fees, either directly or indirectly to give it pole position for its for search engine which then makes it search engine dominant, and then it gives it a an unfair advantage in search ads. So it starting with search and adding on search ads in it is mostly focused on the idea of Google spending billions of dollars a year to give itself, prime? Placement. Your phone and yeah and to the average person of sitting here thinking what does this case kind of boil down to it's basically that Not just that Google is too big right but that Google has unfairly made itself. So essential in all of our lives. That's the overall thrust of all the antitrust and all the tech reform conversations we're having, which is all of these tech companies, Google and facebook, and Amazon, and apple are have gotten so big and they're not really restrained by government in any way, and this has been going on for years and decades and someone should should do something about it, and this is really the first. Concrete who've we've seen from the government in sort of the modern Internet era trying to rein in these big tech companies. All right. So I'm guessing Google to not throw them a big hug. What's their response to this Google response is, Hey, we have an awesome search engine. What's your problem with this by the way it's free so we're not harming any consumers with their awesome Search engine by the way when we spend billions of dollars and give that money to apple and Samsung or do people who use our android software for free, they get to deliver awesome phones to you for less money than they would have normally because we're helping to subsidize that what's your problem by the way? The idea of giving people money to get better placement is not. A new idea it happens all the time. When you go to your grocery store, your target or Walmart people have paid to have their products on the shelf or on an end cap they pay different prices depending on where they get placed. This is not a new idea, and by the way we've done all this in the open for years. Yeah. You get the sense that Google. Sees this as an existential threat at all I mean. I. Wonder to what extent This is a financial risk for Google. Stock Market said no big deal Google share prices trading higher than it was Google has faced these kinds of accusations and lawsuits in Europe for years there is definitely a possibility the the US wins a lawsuit and there are structural a reform is made in. Google. was forced to do something drastic like split it's android business from its search business. We're not sure as possible. This could be a way to break it up. Yeah. It's it is possible. There is a wedge here that you could use to break it up. There's also the possibility that. Spends years fighting the DOJ and it gets it takes its eye on the ball and or it doesn't make moves that it would want to make because it's in a lawsuit and it has one upset the government anymore, and this is what people at Microsoft said happened at Microsoft when they were fighting the US government twenty years ago. Microsoft ended up winning that because sort of there was going to break up settlement for for Microsoft and ended up not happening in Microsoft kind of got away with punishment except that Microsoft ended up missing out entirely on the mobile business and there are Microsoft people who say we did that because we we took our eye off the ball and There's an argument that just bringing the lawsuit and just occupying Google. Is Sort of a punishment in and of itself Peter you mentioned your story which talked about the fact that there's a lot of people on both the left and the right who've been calling to break up big tech. He's going after Google. Specifically, you made a great point which is that you had this sort of unlikely alliance between the trump justice department, which is bringing this lawsuit and folks on the Left like Elizabeth Warren who are. Glad. That Google is getting some skirting for the first time in a while. They're very glad and to be clear you know it's not just that it's a left right thing. I mean, the Lisbeth Warren Detests Bill. Burr she calls him a corrupt trump crony who should resign. And then literally, in the next sentence in a statement, they gave to me said and he should go ahead and pursue this lawsuit. And you know it's as basic as as anime enemy is my friend. The slightly more sophisticated argument is we can't wait to work with the DOJ that we love. We need to work with the DOJ we have. We've been waiting to restrain google for a decade or more, and we can't wait on this. It's gotta go. I want to ask about the timing of this. there. have been reports that this was sort of sped out right that there's an election coming up once every possible accomplishment that he can talk about to happen before Election Day. Do you see any evidence that this was rushed at all or what do you make of kind of reporting that? This is politically motivated to at least begin to unfold before Election Day there was a report from the New York Times in particular said. There's dissension within the DOJ career staff wanted to go slower and that bar was moving to make this go faster and he wanted to happen this fall. The intimation is this would be sort of a political action. It's possible. We certainly have seen Donald Trump rail against big tech companies especially in the last couple of weeks, he has to set anything about this suit today and and to be fair this is a little a little abstract I think for people to sorta understand and you know. I'm not a political expert, but it doesn't seem like this is going to move a vote. That said, you know it's Donald Trump era everything's very weird and and it's To ask questions about something like like the timing on this right? I mean. The timing is step back. Though as you mentioned earlier, this is a years long game. You know he trump I get to say he's begun the lawsuit, but obviously, this is not happening. Yeah. A more practical way of thinking about or another another way of thinking about it that folks have suggested to me is this is likely the biggest case in bill bars career and that if he doesn't file it now or at least before. He may not get a chance to file it because Donald Trump may not be president come January. So the rushes for Bill Bar to get this thing through and have his stamp on it. This a lawsuit that is gonNA live for a long time. Right it could live in Abidin Justice Department right and that he wanted to be the one to bring yes it may sir it is very likely to continue a Biden Justice Department and that bill bars looking at this sort of with a historical frame like this will be my contribution to antitrust.
Arkansas AG On Google Antitrust Suit: 'I Don't Want What Google Says Is Best'
"The Department of Justice is suing Google accusing it of being quote a monopoly gatekeeper for the Internet Google's worth about a trillion dollars, which is very big and the DOJ says it's abusing its dominance over smaller rival companies Google's chief legal officer Kent Walker Calls Lawsuit Deeply. Flawed in a statement eleven republican state attorneys general join that suit including Arkansas AG. Leslie Rutledge who's with me now, and before we start talking I, want to note that Google is a financial sponsor of NPR Good Morning Ms Rutledge. We're good morning. Thanks so much for having me on today of course state attorneys General I should say were investigating Google what is the most compelling evidence that investigation uncovered that says to you what Google is doing is illegal and we should sue the company. Look correct when people google something they believe that it's free to Google and that they're going to get the best products I Brought up to them on that search engine. But what we have found through those investigations is that Google has manipulated those search engines. They have a exclusivity contract essentially when you buy an apple product and automatically defaults to Google, and when you type something into noodle and populate, you may not be getting the the best products or the best services to you. Rather you're getting what Google you to she, and that's what is so concerning is that they control ninety plus percent of the market space in the search engine world. I'm going to get to the point you're making about default in just a moment but the. Thing that I am very curious about have you gotten specific complaints from your constituents in Arkansas saying Google is making it hard for me to do X. Y. and Z in a way that illegal. But we received thousands of complaints every single week I some about search engine, some about robocalls, and so I don't have those in front of me unfortunately right now. But yes, we receive complaints about people not being able to find perhaps their products not being populated your winds, my product my services can't on page ten of a Google search when it clearly most popular product and it should be on page one. Okay. Let's move to the question of it being the default search engine. So one of the main arguments in favor of Google, the argument that Google would make is it is free in the sense that I am not paying anything when I, you know Google my name, for example, which I try not to do it it is the best. That's Google's argument. And if you want to change your search engine Google says, here's how you do it. In fact, in their statement, responding to the lawsuit actually have instructions on how to change a search engine from Google to say Beng why don't you buy that? It is bad but fault and the reason why we don't produce because again, they control ninety percent plus of beat the market space in this area and so it's not hard to shut out competition when you've already shut out competition and people go has now become a verb it's not simply a noun, it's not simply a suburban so people use it to describe even if they were using being or some other search and they will say, well, let me Google that and they might go to blame. They're not going to say let me bring that and it has. To, be a verb I I get what you're saying, but that's not a leak. That's not illegal but the deceptive trade practices and that's why we're bringing this antitrust lawsuit. Stating that. and. Pushing out the competition where there can be no competition is illegal and that's why we've worked with the Department of Justice Attorney General Bar in these other ten states to bring this suit against Google we want Americans to have the best products. The Best Services I know if my two year old daughter gets sick at night and I'm searching, I'm googling if you will to find a pediatrician or how to help her I, want the back Stalker and the best medication I don't want what doodle says as best I want the actual best and that's what every American wants. When they look for something, we don't want something three just because. We want the best it's free. The lawsuit talks about the need for quote, structural remedies but then it doesn't offer any details. What are the structural remedies that you envision? Are you talking about breaking apart parts of this business? Not, necessarily, no not at all I think it's allowing more competition to come in. There are so many new and innovative models for research emerging. But in order for those models to have a chance, we need google to break it stranglehold over the Internet. So it doesn't mean breaking apart the company it means you're breaking apart the stranglehold breaking apart that ninety plus percent and the market place. You Google doing something voluntarily which many businesses would argue. that. It is not in their interest and they shouldn't do it. Let me ask you. About something about who's joined this suit. So it's eleven republican state Attorney General No Democrats just yet as I understand it historically Republicans. Have not been in favor of many types of government regulation of private business. The trump administration often is not what makes this particular case different but we would. Strongly encourage our democratic colleagues from across the country to join these efforts I know that we've been conversations with him. So this doesn't necessarily have to be partisan effort. We would love to be a bipartisan effort a and yes, we're Publicans we are not. Fond of over regulation by government, how you have a companies or big tech companies. Are Shutting out competition or who are impacting individual some free speech rights and yes, we will step in and that's our job as the chief law enforcement and the chief legal officers of our respective states and working with the Department of Justice. Are you considering signing onto any similar lawsuits against other tech giants? So facebook apple and Amazon Spring to mind. Well, it has making starting in recent weeks months with what we're seeing from big tech companies who are blocking speech on their platforms speech that it's not necessarily violent or destructive, but rather speech if they do not agree with and so we want all Americans whatever plant they're using the of the exercise, their free speech, and to be able to use these platforms and to not be shut out simply for political reasons. As you know in right now we're approaching the number thirty election. Many people are already voting absentee or early voting state and. Signs some big tech companies blocking speeches become very concerning. It is something that we were talking about on a national level. I. Will say that we would need to look a bit further for evidence for that as our tech correspondent Shannon bond has pointed out Leslie. Rutledge Attorney General for Arkansas. Thank you so much. Thank, you have a great day.
What happened to Quibi?
"So how do you raise almost two billion dollars a billion and three quarters and blow through it in something less than a year I personally have no idea but Jeffrey Katzenberg sure does the Wall Street Journal reports this afternoon the Katzenberg, one of the founders of the much touted and once promising entertainment platform Qube for quick. Bites, real short bits of content mobile, first Katzenberg shutting it down. So for the second day in a row, molly would is here with our lead story. Hey, Ma. Hey hello again hello. Yes. So. What happened with BE? Yeah Qube. You have to give Jeffrey Katzenberg. Meg Whitman Credit Qube was consistent all along. This is a company that said we are about mobile content. You are going to watch everything on your phone. We're about it being short and we're about this specific technology that makes it cooler to watch on your phone. That's it. No compromises and unfortunately. They. Had the double whammy of miscalculating I think how much people wanted to do that and more importantly how much they wanted to pay to do that. And arriving in the middle of a pandemic where all of a sudden people were at home with their big huge screens instead of in the grocery store on their phones right We're you surprised I mean you and I've talked about this on, make me smart but we use the prize because they had Katzenberg. They had whitman. They had. Janice. Min, at one point I mean this was a it was a stack cast here as it were. It really was, and yet it is one of those weird wisdom of the crowds thing where almost everybody was skeptical of qube almost everybody felt like feels like a little too much money and a bet that is not entirely proven what I'm surprised about is that after six months qube is going to disappear I mean you don't hear about that very often they must have really not made a lot of friends in Hollywood to actually just. Go away any. Lessons learned. Was it just an idea before its time and it's coming eventually and let's hang out and wait for it or what? You know I think the lesson is twofold one. You cannot prescribe what people want to do in the way they want to consume like sometimes you really do have to follow a market and also content is king yet can't watch streaming service without a library of content, a deep bench, and you can't be mediocre. I mean, the the content you know the T. V. making landscape right now is operating at as high a level as it ever has right and a lot of the content reviews for what was on Qube, were.

Hope Vs. Despair
"Everyone Stacey Incarnate Cardiff here. This is indicator from planet money and it has been a while since stacey naive put on our holsters stared across from each other for a good old fashioned gunslinger and shootout. Right we know Cardiff. That these things are very hard on you so try not to make them frequently you know as it or not. I am talking like I'm in a Sergio Leone flick. So because we should always be talking like we're in a Sergio Leone movie. We need the music fistful of dollars, the DOODOO. Of. The US economy is in this very uncertain place right now, there's the election coming up Congress and the White House have not agreed on a new bill to provide aid and stimulus, and the economic indicators are pointing all kinds of different directions. Yes. So based on those indicators is the case for hope stronger or weaker than the case for despair. To end the show station high debate, we take sides and to decide which side we're flipping a coin flip out at the O. K. Corral, Dang right? Heads I. Make the case for hope and Stacey you are despairing and if it's tails, you get to be hopeful. So I'm hoping for hope. It's tails, which means you get to be hopeful I. Spring the despair. Oh, I'm so excited I. I'm excited to be the voice of hope Cardiff. I feel like I feel like there's a part of you. That's excited to be the voice of despair. AM I. Wrong. Little bit a little bit. So yeah US economy after the break the good the bad and the I guess in our case the Smug League own nice. Prepare to rush Garcia prepared to do Rashed it's happening. Support for this podcast and the following message come from. Google, from updating their hours to adding takeout and delivery information. Small businesses around the country are using free google tools to adapt learn how at Google dot com slash grow. Okay folks. I will be arguing the case for pessimism for despair about the US economy stacey is arguing the case for hope. Stacey. You get to draw I. Okay. Cardiff here it is the case for hope the US economy is coming back. Economists are forecasting that the economy rebounded very strongly in the third quarter of this year after a very terrible second quarter the official numbers for the third quarter have not been released yet. They come out next week, but it is possible that the economy was up to eight percent bigger than it was in the second quarter that is just enormous definitely for sure it would be A. Really strong number but let's remember that the third quarter included the month of July when the economy was still running on the stimulus provided by the cares act that was the big government spending bill that provided an extra six hundred dollars a week in unemployment benefits to people who are out of work but those extra benefits expired at the end of July. So the stimulus by now is probably wearing off and also we still have almost seven million more unemployed people in the country. Then back in February before the pandemic started and I'm really worried about them now that they're not getting that extra help. Yes, you are totally Right that the high unemployment rate has been absolutely crushing, but the reason for hope is that Cardiff this very great that you referred to has actually been falling. So remember the worst economic damage from the pandemic was in the early months of March and April since then the unemployment rate has fallen from about fifteen percent where it peaked down to about eight percent as the economy has recovered, that is a huge recovery in a pretty short amount of time. That's true for sure and a hopeful sign but we have to recall that not all unemployment is the same most of the people who've already gotten their jobs back only. Lost those jobs fairly recently, but the number of long-term unemployed people is actually still going up each month. These are people who lost their jobs more than half a year ago and they have not been rehired and the longer they go without a job. The more likely it is that they're gonNA, lose their contacts and lose their skill sets and really struggled to find work again. Later you make some fair points Cardiff and I would respond that if the economy keeps growing though eventually those jobs will come back and there is a really good reason for hope that the economy will, in fact keep growing and that is consumer confidence. In September consumer confidence shot up by the most it has in seventeen years, which means that people in the US are planning to keep spending money because they are optimistic about the economy. For example, the sheriff people who are planning to buy a major appliance like a refrigerator, a stove or something like that is the highest it's been in seven months, and all that spending is going to keep the economy growing. There we go. Cardiff Garcia mic drop I. Think we should just call it right now I have one because consumers can be wrong I. Mean just because you're planning to buy the latest oxo coffeemaker with that sleek. Thermal Carafe does that mean you actually will if suddenly the economy goes bad but I would also point to a big split in precisely what people are spending money on. So specifically, yes people are spending more and more money on goods for the home like furniture and electron ix. But consumers are still not spending much money on services on things like eating at restaurants on traveling, and that's a problem because for example, restaurants and hotels are a huge source of employment for low income workers. So I'm just worried about people who rely on those jobs coming back especially since remember again, those extra benefits for the unemployed already expired. Almost three months ago card. If I think you should go ahead and splurge and buy yourself fancy coffee Raffin. Here's why. So you keep mentioning that the benefits for unemployed workers have expired and that is true but it is also true that not all of the money from those benefits with spent right away. A lot of that money was saved plus people who kept their jobs have also saved more money since the pandemic started because all the business lockdowns meant there were fewer opportunities to spend their money and you know people were maybe hunkering down a little bit too and what this means that a lot of households out. There still have money saved up money that they can start spending in the economy on things like fancy coffee carafe indeed though we also do know that a lot of the unemployed workers have already spent down a lot of their savings according to the J. P. Morgan, Chase Institute the unemployed spent about two thirds of their added savings in August that was the first month after the benefits expired, which means by now their finances could be getting really tightened. So they may have to cut back on some of their spending card. If you've now perfectly set up my final argument in the case for hope hated when I do that. That is policy. It is not too late for the president and Congress to make another deal before the election in order to stimulate the economy, those negotiations are still happening and also the Federal Reserve has been using monetary policy to help boost the economy. For example, low interest rates have given a big boost to the housing market, and historically the housing market has been a good sign of where the rest of the economy is headed and housing market is doing quite well. Yeah I definitely concede. The point about the Fed and the housing market. But the Federal Reserve itself has also said that what would be really useful for the economy is another bill like the cares act from the president and Congress, and all I'm saying to you is if the case for hope relies on politicians striking a deal agreeing on something that might be the most despairing

You've been on my podcast before of always love having you on and when we do these recaps, I'm trying to like who I have on for this respective season, and who would be interesting to go back to someone who I haven't talked to and. Boy Man like. I love to have you on, but it was really low pickings of people I was interested in talking to from your season I gotta say like. There's a handful of good from your season, but. There's all. Listen a lot of the guys from your season did not age well. Like physically or just like. No career wise. Just personality as we got to know them in life, it was like. Man I don't know. Not The I've got a place. Bro, what does that say about Joe to the best personality? What does that say? Joe, what does that say about judge no Joe Joe. Joe And I are very cool and various friendly and. Every once in a while, there will be some like questionable post by someone who made for the NY did and I would. I would Ford those things along to her, and say really eighth place I. As as A. Bachelor I I will defend Gioja. It's this these so many of the things that you've seen Put out there by some of her man. Post show urges things. You wouldn't be able to uncover.

You know to your butthole and none of those things you know. Yeah, you definitely were not Joe Joe's type, and that's that's fine. I remember like? I moved to La as it i. just got to La has joe's season was filming and then I remember meeting a bunch of the guys I hadn't met. You was after the law. and. Oh. Yeah, because I was at the tell all to promote paradise. Oh, so I had met you I remember meeting for the first time we were in like a bus ride to the after party. Yeah, no, but we had met because we have met in paradise, but that's when I met most of the guys. Yeah, and it was. It was the first time I thought while social media is really taking over because. It was such a different vibe between the conversations I had with the guys on Caitlin season in the conversations. I saw many of the guys on Joe Joe Season. Having and it was. I don't know what it was. It was such a specific. Just shift in terms of. Like what the focus was and it really? It kind of taking form the way I kinda saw that that that night, and just like you know like you you I have become friends, and you're just a great guy, and there's some you know I don't I know you're good friends with Derek and he's a I don't know Derek really, but I know from the little bit I know he's really stand up guy but. Yeah? There was a lot of I. also watching this back saw a lot of guys. I like forgot about like Alex. who like really tried to have the youtube career for awhile forgot about about him. But yeah, it was kind of wild looking back it would. There were some big characters on her season. that. kind of fell off the map. It's funny like when the quarantine started Sarah and I started because we didn't know that they're going to do these like bachelor goat, things, and so we were like this'll be fun to rewatch all this back like my season back together because. I totally get it from the respected of like you or or like save. With his new girl I don't know. Like you know that would be awkward, but for me. It wasn't going to be awkward because nothing really ever happened between Joe and I, so there was no like Oh i. don't know if I wanNA. Watch us, but and we watched it back and it was. It was a really funny season. Like as much as we ripped on Chad at the time, he made stuff really funny. I at the time I got at the time. I was annoyed and also like a little scared I. Guess, but watching a was like he had some really good. One liners knows kind of interesting about Chad I remember because I didn't watch judge season in real time for. Whatever reason I just. I just didn't WANNA. Watch it And then I ended up watching it. So, then when I went on Paradise, and I had heard about it, and when came back before, tell all I was like. I decided to binge it, you know. and. And at that point I had heard a lot about Chad obviously right? You see it on twitter. You see clips. Like who is this monster you know? And then I went back and watched it and I gotta say for the most of the time I was washing it just the character on the season I was more or less team chat and he had a lot of. One liners and the collective like. I remember that season at the toddler. There was like in this happens..
