"This is balance of power. Bloomberg television radio. I'm David Weston. We continue to wait for Israel, the MPAA crane to sign that historic Abraham of Concorde's at the White House, normalizing relations between those Arab countries and Israel. Let's bring in now Bill fairies who leads Bloomberg's and national security coverage in Washington. So, Bill, you know this area the world so well, you know all the strife that has been there. What does this do? How does it really shake up the playing cards? In the Middle East. Well, it really shows. I think some of the shifting political dynamics in the region that you have two more countries officially recognizing Israel. It's the kind of achievement. I think any administration Republican or Democrat in the past, I would have loved to have had Oh, and it's you know, growing concern about Iran in the region, but also frankly, shows a concern that the region needs to be more unified over questions about the U. S commitment to the Middle East. President Trump has long said he wants to Get out of intractable conflicts and the reason Ah lot of Americans on both parties agree with the need to get out of places like Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan, and so there is a recognition in the recent as well that they need Thio. They need to form some new alliances that maybe in the 20th century. Weren't appropriate. But in the 21st century seem well, you know? Well, Prime Tio help him address some of the challenges that air coming. Iran cannot be very happy with these developments to what extent they being put in a quarter by a combination now of Israel, plus some of the Arab countries. It's it's They're certainly being left behind here. Iran and the Palestinians, I think, are the two losers on this. Iran has to be looking around the region with increasing alarm. It was already it was already kind of with his back against the wall with the Saudis trying to leave. A regional alliance against them, but to actually see countries taking the next step on DH recognizing Israel are beginning to open commercial diplomatic relations. That's a huge leap for the region. And particularly, we haven't talked a ton about Bahrain's role in this, but Bahrain is like Iran and Shiite majority country. On DH for Iran to see by rain. Joining that is that's actually in some ways as significant or more significant than the move. Well, it's in fascinating point you made because, as you say, Bob Crane is a Shia majority country, although the Sunni minority have been ruling that there've been real strife there in Bahrain over that is the leadership of the King actually of Bahrain, taking some risks here. Certainly, And I think you know when people talk about the next steps, and you know which countries might be next. And ah, that conversation always turns to the Saudis, and when will they consider something like this? I think the Saudis maybe giving their blessing behind the feast all this, but they're going to be much more cautious in terms of seeing how it plays out. With populations with the population in a place like Bahrain and you a before they really decide to take what would be AH, politically ah, potentially explosive step of following these countries into some sort of deal. There may be a lot of behind the scenes diplomacy it goes on. But for the Saudis The keepers of the holy site for this bomb to go ahead and do that. I think that's going to be a weight off. That sounds exactly right. Thank you. So much of Bill fairies who leads our Bloomberg National.

"Today's episode. We're going to discuss the latest film and TV news. Okay, a bit of sad news today, earlier today was revealed that Joel Schumacher, the director has died than toast butter. Yeah Joel Schumacher who was eighty years old, died of cancer this morning in new. York, city I! Think a lot of people probably know him best for his mid-nineties Batman movies. He directed Batman forever and Batman and Robin. He added a lot of the Campinas of the atom west days back into the Batman Franchise after timber was done with it before Christopher Nolan sort of relaunched the whole thing I. think a lot of people look at Batman and. And Robin as one of the worst Batman Movies and sort of I guess blame Schumacher for that I kind of have always been a little bit of a defender of his not necessarily for Batman Robin, but for Batman forever movie, that I think is actually really pretty good and very stylish, and just a different type of Batman movie been a lot of people want, but one that I think is just as valid as any other version so. I think for a lot of people. Joel Schumacher. Probably for the worse associated with those movies, but I think his career with so much more interesting than just directing a couple of Batman movies. In the mid nineties, he started out as a costume designer, and then he wrote the Whiz which I didn't even know until I was researching his his IMDB and stuff for writing this obituary, but the Wiz was black retelling of the wizard of Oz that came out in the late Seventies. I had no idea that he wrote the screenplay for that. He directed state almost fire which. which was a big Brat pack drama back in Nineteen Eighty five. He directed the lost boys. The vampire thriller flatliners WHO's really really great at finding young up and coming actors who would go on to be some of the biggest? The biggest stars in Hollywood sweet, a real eye for casting. He directed some John Grisham adaptations and movies like phone booth, and the Phantom of the opera I mean he was. He was one of those directors that you can never really pin down. What exactly he was GONNA do because. He was constantly pushing himself in different directions sort of expanding his Palette as a storyteller so. It's a sad day to see him go. I would also I linked to in this in this obituary linked to this vulture profile of him from last year, which is an incredible read talks about having somewhere in the range of ten thousand to twenty thousand sexual partners over his life It is amazing. Read I would definitely if you're interested in Joel, Schumacher at all, you have to read that these so. Check that out. I wouldn't say a huge Joel. Schumacher fan I I really liked Phone down was a film of his. I really enjoyed I. Think I'm a big fan of Batman and Batman forever, then I think a lot of people are He's one of the directors. I feel like kind of like Tony Scott in that he always kind of went big and bold in contemporary, and didn't really care to. Try to make things he'll timeless. They they kind of you know like he swings. Courts Chris. What do you think of Joel Schumacher? I like a lot of his movies, even kind of like. Both is Batman movies even Batman and Robin I. Think has a place in this world you know. He started out as a production designer, so he was very much a stylist. He's very much sometimes. Over substance guy but I appreciate that I like his little weird touches like He. He loved Neon, and it's all over his movies I. One of my favorite things about. flatliners original, which he directed is is Kiefer Sutherland has this. Art Deco apartment he lives in and all the lighting is fluorescent lighting tubes. They're all. Attached to the floor into the ceiling and it's like. No one lives like that like no as an apartment like that because it's in that movie because you just tell them Schumer was like this looks cool. Let's do this and I appreciate a filmmaker WHO's like? He doesn't give a shit about talk about like being realistic, just wanted to look good, and you know I appreciate stuff like that. And I like autos movies. I liked eight millimeter I was a big fan of that, which is like a really scuzzy studio. Pick like when you washed. It feels like a really. Filthy film and it's amazing that that was the actual blink studio movie. You almost feel gross watching that movie. Yeah, exactly and it's kind of a big deal that like he had enough clout to direct a movie. That was that nasty and was still like you know a a mainstream film, so yeah I like a lot of his movies. Brad, what is your feeling on the filmography of Joel Schumacher? Roughly the same and I the the Batman movies he did still do hold a special place in my heart, you know. I Love Batman forever. Growing up simply because I was a huge Jim. Carrey fan as a kid and seeing him just cut loose and go crazy as the ridler. was so much fun not to mention the fact that Tommy Lee. Jones is just having a blast in that movie as to face. And just the way they worked together as great, even the Tommy Lee Jones famously did not a quote. Unquote Sanction Jim Carey's buffoonery as a famous story was told about the the tension between them, but yeah I mean it's A. Where I had a vhs I would wash it so many times in that there's a couple of friends and I who will just randomly throw out lines, but the third chaffey said during the what what is your favorite line? I'm just..
'South Park' Episode Mocks Hollywood for Shaping Stories to Please China
"Comedy central South Park is no stranger to controversy over the shows almost three hundred episodes creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone have taken on everything from scientology to the war in Iraq now the show has a new critic China the latest South Park episode titled Banned in China Takes on among other things how Hollywood panders to the massive sneeze entertainment market here's a cut from the episode that gets right to the point I can't do it anymore you guys I can't even think the Chinese government censoring everything I write no there's not going to be a bio pic movie for us it's so wrong you know I mean we live in a time where the only movies that it's American kids go see are ones that are approved by China yeah like China's the new MPAA Ryan Parker wrote about the controversy for the Hollywood reporter and he tells me how the Chinese government has reacted so far from everything that we can he from our correspondent it looks like South Park has been pretty much banned in the country and all references to sell park had been scrubbed from any online sites basically from everything we know if you search for South Park your not going to get any information and apparently all the streaming services have also seized is carrying any of the episodes in any of the clip so it's almost as though South Park all of a sudden doesn't exist I wanNA play a little cut from the episode here this is a scene in which may have caught the eye of some Chinese censors in this bit a very angry Mickey Mouse who might also be Disney head Bob Iger is chastising in a room full of Disney and marvel characters decided to go and start Chinese and I just say anything critical of Chinese politics will it is true so the Chinese seem to exploit their own people forced labor so I would say there's a fair amount in the band in China episode that Chinese answer could be a little bit angry about if you were to kind of pick a couple of examples what would you cite well I think that the when he the Pu reference definitely did not go over well I think that's been well reported that that's a huge issue there and then the the the way in which the the work camps were portrayed were in the Horton conditions that the those in prison there had to go through and was also probably Inaugu over well Yeah Winnie the Pooh I think in some circles has been compared to the appearance of President Gee and the Poo essentially vanished from a lot of sense social media sites in China is that right that sure seems to be the case from everything that I've seen reported and that apparently is what Matt and Trey the creators of South Park thought to and that's one of the reasons why randy when he gets put into a work camp runs into Winnie the Pooh and piglet and they explain exactly what's happening in the news which is the first time that Matt and Trey Have you South Park and real world events in news and worked it into the story line so you know they're getting their laughs but they're also a few things that maybe some folks aren't aware of listen guys we just got word back from the Chinese censors they don't want US mentioning organ transplants how come well they've been accused of harvesting organs from look it doesn't matter they they said no to the Oregon stuff oh and no homosexuality either there's this great phrase in the law it's a Latin phrase called ray so low quarter which means the facts speak for themselves and I have to say the fact that Chinese censors are blocking South Park pretty much validates the whole point of the episode doesn't it it would sure appear to be that way I think the mantra were definitely making a point sir numerous points rather when they did this episode both about how Hollywood and studios tailor their art to fit the Chinese censors so that they can obviously make money there but also the horn conditions that the work camps in China or what people who were in those camps in China the horrid conditions that they have to go through there've been a couple of run INS with China recently one is the NBA and the NBA has apologized because of what it called an inappropriate comment and by the general manager of the Houston Rockets who sent out a tweet and support of Hong Kong's Democracy Movement Matt and Trey have come out with a slight he different statement what did they say in response to the controversy well they went right for it which they usually tend to lean and they said light quote like the NBA welcome the Chinese censors into our homes into our hearts and part and basically what they were saying this full apology is that money and money is more important than freedom democracy so they definitely were leaning in and taking a shot with this fo apology and I I can't imagine this'll be the last we hear of it I wouldn't be surprised if there was something in this week's episode I don't know necessarily but I certainly wouldn't be surprised if this is the last we hear of it from them

"I on Keith Davis this been three and I'm here with Amelia Amelia, and with us today is making Kinney. She is a co founder of open Justice Baltimore, and some of the PD will know her as the girl with the sign make it explain that to me. Yeah. So during the uprising after the death of Freddie, gray, I was one of the many protesters in the streets demanding Justice for Freddie, and I held a sign that said stop killer cops. And apparently that was familiar signed to be PD and the referred to me as the girl with the sign despite being thirty seven years old at the time to the girl, but whatever. So yeah, I've just been a resident Baltimore City have been for ten years and just compelled to get out in the streets for, Freddie, and for all victims of police brutality and through all that activism protesting. I learned Keith Kelly Keats story. And so I've been a part of team Keith for almost four years now to me about open just as Baltimore and how that came about. Yeah. Open justice. Baltimore is a collective data scientist or data minded people in we collect a re sort of gather all this publicly available data into one place. So that the public can be more informed about the information. That's out there of people in power and people with badges and guns. And so we have a one tool called case harvester that that harvests all of the data from the Mary marriage addition k search. For Baltimore City and compiles it into one place where people can go and then access that data and look and do true data analysis as right now that case searches Ferrier eat silo via in clunky. And you have the really scotch tape pieces together. And so this tool does that for you? And so you can look across time you can look onto tudent only at officers behaviors really and judges behaviors and prosecutors behaviors and another tool we have is as BPD watch. Which is we just launched last week. It's an online roster all of Baltimore police officers for two rosters that we got through MPAA requests. And so it allows the public to learn who is in our neighborhoods with badges and guns, and if BPD's so concerned. About strengthening a peaceful relationship with the public. They shouldn't have a problem with us knowing who they are. So have problem with that with with a new site, the former president F O P that Dichter Gerhard certainly does. But he's. We'll go into that. But no, they shouldn't. But some do because you know, the the media jump is that it's an invasion of privacy while all of his data's publicly available. And none of it is there's no resident information like we don't put their addresses. We literally just put stuff that is publicly available that we the either get through open. Baltimore were NPA requests. So it's it's not private anyways in their salaries. Right. And so you can see like you can see their salaries over the years overtime there overtime over the years. And it really just allows the public to know who's walking around with badges and guns, and what how much money we're spending on them. Right. So you one of the things that we end eventually wanna do is be able to find collect 'em. Then make excessive oil how much taxpayer money is spent on civil cases that the police are found responsible for. So like, you know, if an officer has ten civil suits against them. And they lose them all how much money is the public just given out for this one officer who who has demonstrated uncivil behavior. Really? And my guess is that it would be mind blowing how much you know, it could be like one officer could cost the city hundreds of thousands of dollars because they won't stop beating the shit out of people, and they don't get fired..

Your church your ward, if you happen to be a Mormon, I know this is a rated R movie, but that is a political rating there is nothing more important than seeing this and bringing people especially youth to see this eight will change them forever. There's no way you walk out of this movie and say, oh, well, that's just a blob.

"I mean, I mean, the the academy is is saying what can we do to make this happen? And I and I'm saying to you that as one of the smartest people, I know one of the funniest people, I know, and when you see this movie, you see the talent and see his acting ability, and what the the different layers of of of Kevin Hart is and that's just another thing. We're gonna get to see where we're going to get to see onstage with you hosting the Oscars is sophistication class hilarity. And and you growing as as a person because most people would say I'm walking away. I'm not coming back because you know, I'm gonna go back and forth. But for you to be the bigger man for you. I understand and to not pay attention. There was just pause right there. On the inter-. Why does Kevin Hart need to be the bigger person? When he's being asked to do something that he doesn't wanna do. He's already apologize for something which happened years ago. She asking him to do it again. She's asked him to go ahead and put all this other stuff aside. I guess because I thought as at least how was presented that was one of their requirements for him to host because they wanted him to go ahead and apologize again. Otherwise, this is a non story, right? Why does Kevin Hart need to be the bigger person in this? Why is hosting the Oscars indicative of being the bigger person that I completely reject Kevin Hart chose to walk away. That was his decision. And actually I support that decision because if you don't feel comfortable with what the the MPAA is asking you to do. Then don't take their money that seems like the right thing to do. And I thought even in this interview 'cause I saw some of it as it was happening. And I thought he made it clear that he was done. Right. But I'm not sure now. Lets you asked as far as whether he knew that she was asking or entering the conversation on his behalf and clearly he didn't. So let's pick up their judge people being very very loud.

"So I actually did not know this. But apparently, the MPA has this rule where you can't screen unrated version of film, so close to win a rated version is going to screen. So what I f see films was doing here is they were screening the unrated cut of the house that Jack built for one night only this week and then a few weeks for now in December. They're also going to screen the r rated cut, but apparently those dates were too close for comfort for the NPA and in order to do this. I have see films was what have to sign a waiver, which they did not do. And as a result there. Endanger of being? Sanctioned by the MPAA and could spell trouble for them. It could get the rating removed from the film entirely. It could have other films. There's be reappraised for ratings all this stuff could possibly happen IFC films now because they didn't get the appropriate waiver and. On the you know, I say in the story technically IFC field did something wrong here. I guess they broke. But this is really bureaucratic nonsense of the MPAA's. This is like footloose where John Lithgow tells the town. They can't dance. It's like look just just let it go NPA. It's really not that big of a deal. And I'm gonna part of me wonders if this was even intentional because the whole way they were selling the house of Jack, Jack. But was you know, I'll look at how controversial this LARs von Trier movie. It's now I'm wondering if I've see films knew something like this would happen, and they took a risk on it because they wanted, you know, more press for, you know, look at how dangerous this movie is. But that's just speculation on my part. I mean, you might be right. Like seeing how the MP a operates like they're not have either of you seen that documentary from. Guessing it's the mid two thousand Kirby Dick's. Yeah. That one from two thousand six. Yeah. This film is not yet. Rated I think it's called. It's a great documentary. I look at the NPA and like they they're very vindictive. And really how they operate is very of. I guess shady. Con artist actually, the movie it look like, yeah. Yeah. Yeah. We shouldn't say that. They're kinda. But the movie made them look like or like, I didn't say they are you me MPA. I mean, I okay, I'm gonna play my devil's advocate hat here. I do see why the MPA would want in unrated cut of a movie in a rating cut in the movie to be, you know, to have time in between the two because you're marketing one thing to a specific audience and being like, oh, this is okay for kids, or or whatever, you know. And then you have this unrated cut that, you know, audiences could theoretically walking to not knowing that that is the unrated cut, even though it probably says unreal all the signs and everything. Okay. I I've already talked myself out of this. And especially with the kid angle. I mean, this is the LARs von tree. Yeah. I was trying it didn't it didn't work. Sometimes he's devil's advocate system. Don't work out. But let's move on. We're we're gonna move onto our last story. And that is that the bef I is saying they won't fund any movies that depict villain's with facial scars any longer than what is going on here. Yeah. So, you know, as long as I have been alive and way longer actually the movie industry has used scars as sort of a visual visual shorthand for villainy in movies. I can't tell you the number of movie henchman that I've seen over the years who have scars on their faces, and it's just like a quick and easy way for audiences to understand that this is a bad guy. But the British Film Institute or BFI is now trying to combat the negative stigma. That's associated with facial disfigurement. And they have announced that they are no longer going to be providing funding for movies that include villains with facial scars. So they actually are going to funding I guess going out of their way to fund movies that are sort of the opposite. They. Just provided funding for a new drama called dirty. God that focuses on a woman in south London who rebuilt her life after an acid attack?.

It was usually them by deejays and people that you know, they just really couldn't put a collection together. And it was underground trading.

They want to shut you down under the unlawful content unlawful network traffic clauses. That's the point. They can't you can't shut down Torrance. You can't shut down stuff. It's peer to peer.

It's a referral link. It's a proxy link. It's torrent traffic. Well, and they have and they have agreements with all the payment services. So they cast Comcast it's in their interest to block those things because they sell movies. From you know, Netflix clone that they, you know, if you're Comcast customer, you can most of the peace do rent, this movie new rent, this movie, three bucks for bucks, whatever it is. And they would love to be able to block the stuff, but I don't know how they're going to get around to technology technology outstrip. These guys are slow on the draw there, not technologists. They're bunch of. We agreed on this point several times in the past. This is what day every time you turn around. Now, you have the device can go past all this stuff. Whether they gonna do about exactly what they said they want. They wanted to mandate that referring link traffic from VPN's would be available. So they would know if both sides, a if the hosting part was in where that syringe naked from or if you were accessing from the wrong country for some something you're not supposed to retrieve. You go to it. Okay. You take your VPN? Everyone has one I say I'd say have to use of this show have VPN. You just for me. I don't understand what you're doing. I'm gonna make your point because you can't make it to me, but I'm gonna make it to you. So you get these VPN's are entering crip did every which way they're encrypted to VPN. They're encrypted from the VPN. They're encrypted from the VPN to the other sites, and there's back and forth. I don't care what kind of deep packet sniffing. You do to just look at his data stream as just an anonymous data string coming in. This is a bunch of nothing.
