"Republican National Convention from WNYC. I'm Andrea Bernstein, co host of the Trump Ink Podcast from W. N. Y. C and propublica about the business of Trump. And now we bring you an episode of Trump ink from earlier this year. It's the inside story of a group of city tax assessors who spent decades fixing tax bills for some of the most powerful real estate developers in the city. Hears that story from WNYC is Kathryn Sullivan and Propublica is Heather Vogel. We begin early in Michael Bloomberg's first term as mayor when he announced the arrests of city tax assessor's recently in February, 2002 18 current or former New York City tax assessor's employed by the Finance Department's Riel Property Assessment unit were arrested on federal racketeering, bribery and mail fraud charges. Bloomberg estimated the city had lost $160 million in tax revenues. Over just the previous four years. A joint city federal investigation revealed that the excesses took more than 10 million in bribes over a 35 year period. All the assessors pleaded guilty except for one who died. Most served prison time and are still paying restitution. Though the scheme was widespread, encompassing more than 500 properties. No owners were charged. The statute of limitations for prosecution has passed. Only a few of the companies who were allegedly involved were ever publicly named. We have one more. Here's what Trump Inc reporter Kathryn Sullivan and Propublica as Heather Vogel have found. According to five former tax assessor's and city employees who were convicted in the scheme, as well as a former Trump organization employee. The Trump Organization paid bribes through middlemen to New York City tax assessor's toe, lower its property tax bills for several Manhattan buildings in the 19 eighties and 19 nineties. In turn, the former city employees say Trump's company received tax reductions at several Marquis Properties. The alleged payoffs involved bag men, envelopes of cash meetings in restaurants and big savings for the Trump Organization. No evidence has emerged that Donald Trump personally participated in the alleged bribery. We don't know exactly what if anything, Donald Trump knew about the scheme. The Trump Organization said in a statement. To be clear at no time did the Trump organization or any of its employees are principles ever pay anyone for the purpose of unlawfully obtaining a lower tax valuation? The White House did not respond to requests for comment. The events we're talking about happened a long time ago. Some of the people involved have died. Almost no one wanted to be named because they're afraid of retribution. So we're relying on multiple unnamed sources. Which we've gone to lengths to corroborate, will explain. Katherine Sullivan takes it from here. I'm.

"Overnight with some fog. It's 10 40 knew this evening. Internal emails and documents obtained by the House Oversight Committee show The White House overspent on ventilators by as much as half a $1,000,000,000. NBC News reports that the administration failed to enforce a contract with a major medical manufacturer, delayed negotiations and overpaid for tens of thousands of the devices as officials from some of the biggest states. We're warning of ventilator shortages. President Trump has repeatedly pointed to his administration's distribution of ventilators as a success story. But the news raises serious concerns about an estimated three billion taxpayer dollars spent on the devices. Three of President Trump's Marquis Properties. The Trump International Hotel here in D. C. Mara Lago and Trump National Doral in Florida, reported a mixed revenue record last year. That comes from a financial disclosure form provided to the federal government. CNN reports As in previous years, the form appears to list revenues for Trump Organization properties. Under the income field that's typically used by officeholders to report on Lee their personal take home pay or share of an asset, a move that gives an inflated view of the president's wealth. Form shows Mar A Lago Club took in 21 a half 1,000,000 last year, versus almost 23 mil the year before. About 25 million in 2017.

When you go to Midwestern South and you've had no experience with it is is eye opening that taught me all I needed to know. CRD allowed is more superficial. The West Coast people smile and they stabbed in the back. You know, in the south, and I talked a lot to John Thompson, my former colleague. And, you know guys from the South. They prefer to South because they know where you stand. You know where you stand and part of what I was telling you about about that ongoing conversation with my dad. So I just I learned a lot. I saw hatreds, all hatred and always test Children. I can tell you is in the parents do this. The perpetuation of these stereotypes and his ignorance is passed down. Because if you go to a child, I always reach my arms out of I C. Somebody under five years old Milwaukee. The household likes this clean that little baby will put her in harm's right back up to me. Those that have been grains hate. Those kids are frightened of me Frightened Emile site because they've heard their parents say, disparaging things about people who looked like me on television. And that's how they learn it. So it's past. Don't you want to break it in? The parents have got to. They've got to chip in and help. Rodney King was beaten to death 30 years ago, and nothing happened. And had been four murders since George Floyd. So I'm really, really sensitive when it comes to this, and so what has got to do We have younger people who aren't as races by nature. Our millennials. I'm trying him.

The principles include Ah commitment to eight can't wait, measures developed and pushed by activists as simple ways to stop unnecessary use of force. They include banning chokeholds de escalation, training and restrictions on shooting at moving cars. It's a surprise tonight. Many people think so from Trader Joe's. The grocery chain says it will not change product names that some have called racist. A petition recently posted on change dot or GE claims the names create a narrative of exotic schism that perpetuates harmful stereotypes. The chain later responded with a statement saying it was taking a look at its labels. But tonight it posted another statement on its website. It says it doesn't believe labels like Trader Ming's and Trader Jose's are racist. Trader. Joe's has contended such labels represent light hearted efforts at inclusion sports at 15 and 45 brought to you by your local Honda dealer.

I watched curb your enthusiasm which I absolutely love to grab it later. The thing that I watched lost which I thought was terrible with what we talked about. Last time I was on which avenue five which just didn't work on any level for me and left me stony faced in cross The reality is this came out on. I really enjoyed it. I found it charming founded funding. The music is great. I heard cheated vibrant thing Next site two or three last night fill. That was absolutely buying on. Music is radiated good. Looks Fantastic I'm only sort of started on it because Ninety seven now to get through. I found myself going from episode to episode. If I had more time I probably would six seven or eight so resounding I loved absolutely. Isn't it so the central theme is that these are women and that playing a adolescence? And there's a distance between them and their characters. How does that work? And they're also working alongside an acting alongside real teenagers as you. Just think about it or not said he. You just accept it from the get go so it's not odd all juddering as a as it works incredibly. Well I thought I was hooked from from the beginning. I thought it was very clever. So it yeah it completely. It completely completely got seven. Didn't feel stage to force to offer a Yeah I thought. It was in terms of Yet obviously Award on on sky was avenue five at off to episodes adjusting. WanNa watch anymore. It might cross that. Put Your company forever you back. So I'm glad this got me listen The niece as recovery enthusiasm get my complete vote. I'd say Jude the two leads. Very distinct glued together. Sort of best friend teen girls can be this remind you of growing up. Yes yes There was one of the first episode where they're coming out the car to go to the I stayed school. They want to take the first step together and I thought that was brilliant club. You know. It's a long time of seasons. I was a teenager but the intensity of friendships. You can have as girls at that point. You don't see that written about very often there's a little bit of Been Lady Bird and there's been lots of films in the last couple of years. He touched on female friendship. But it can be quite obsessive in an like under them. It's all kind of love story and you really got that with them It's funny Ralph saying that. He did not. I did notice the older ages than the younger cells. May because I was kind of ridiculous find the bonkers teenage girl And in the not so just a little bit shy of the period. They talked about now. A remark made me. Think about bizarrely. When you see these two grown women dancy one who is who is trying to be cooler. This awful bullhook that her mother has intelligent. I I my mom is cut my hair. All God was mullets. Missing but It could've made me really might be thinking about that took Muslim. Muslims writes those those two those two girls being together reading my me. Think of how every single moment of your life is amplified at that time it my favorite was one. You've got to go looking at the back of a boys neck and this piece of music comes up and it's like two sticking. Oh my God buck naked. Back of his neck you know goes all bonkers. I think because as well to be perfectly honest but you still Utah so much significance on like a brief sight of somebody. You know some guy you've got a crush on whatever but yeah adults obsessive intensity with all female friendships and how you aren't yourself to other girls To try and get you through really weird patriots of your life was really good. I thought I didn't. It didn't make me laugh as much as I thought it word. I feel a little bit this week. I've just been big mother's been making me go back into Malaya my yeast with the sun with the strokes. Actually which is a couple of episodes but I want to more laughs it. Yeah I liked that bonding between those really good. Guess Andrew. This is a about kinks isn't it? Why am I asking you? This is the misfits about people that everybody hates. No Friends Andrew. What do you think about it? I actually really enjoyed 'em this what my by my sister-in-law in a in San Francisco he says it's the thing that she'd seen in ages after this a bookstore. An eighth grade. I felt like no more about being a teenage girl in in American high school. Now about being made in British Secondary School Because this is definitely an area that is it well investigated and well excavated by Feld comedy and an MTV I actually. I really enjoyed this. I thought it IT'S A. It's a bit of a slow start episode. One weirdly is kind of short on the massively intense last the coming later episodes. And if you watch what? It does have a bit of a pilot fail. And it's all up to Juan Astonishingly jaw-dropping bit where one of the Gals by Maya goes a bit too far in attempting to establish itself as cool. Not Somebody to be messed around with it. Had you school? Because they need skilled at I can dimly. Remember that thing of having to decide to like create yourself you identity. You'll you're a teenager now you need to. You need to step up and decide who you going to Bay. And they captured out really well. One thing I found strange about it was I actually kept having to remind myself that these are two thirteen. Fifty year olds playing thirteen. Because they are so well at my eskin. Plays Myer doesn't actually look that much older than a teenager. Herself at concord plays an enormously with with shocking brace and yeah so very unforgiving skin makeup well the way they actually inhabit the cut. The you know the the goriness and that the the the clumsiness of the physical kind of comfortable physicality of being you know at an age where things start to happen to your body that you maybe don't quite fully stand by taps but it's perfectly natural. Don't worry those things are happening to. They actually someone operating well. I hoover up couple of episodes. I definitely will be will be doing the rest of them at. I just think it's got a lot of heart and affection for its subject matter to the degree that it these characters that the to the stars a pretty cruel themselves because they understand that this. Is You know for kids. This is the very first ordeal of your life. Had to go into a place nobody is going to cocoon you and care for you and you're going to be surrounded. Lord of the flies style with awful children just like yourself at book caught on a peasant I enjoyed it. I thought it was really good. I I do recommend it. Yeah the some lovely lines in it and at the end of episode. One Anna tells my you're my Rainbow Jell pen and a sea of blue and black writing in utensils and things like that would just really lovely and Ralph says the music is. It's not spot on year two thousand but they're getting around that time so you really get a feel that that it's also about reflection isn't it. Because they played by grownups. There's affection about how they were. And how actually just doesn't matter. Does it all the GEEKY use rubbish? Nece that you do when you're a kid. But the listeners should not imagine that this is some kind of Schmaltz vestige pretty crew remain dog. I do like the idea of these. Two older women have had these conversations with teenage boys. It feels a bit wrong. Obviously but but so right a little bit of you listen to the Jenin. Jericho podcast that. God Yes. He's women talking about their sons. This just like the. It's about edge to. It really is really good for it. Can you makes you think they're reflecting on themselves but also it's made me think about dynamic and how we can be yet. It made me so glad to have doubted skill skill. Fifty Years I thought I thought it was great and genuinely You know although the law things within this genre it is original within the genre yes it is actual. Teens are going to be watching it now. Really more actual teens. It's old people like us to once again be horrified with the environment that we we somehow went through. I mean I. I looked at the youtube comments. Because this is actually the show came on Hulu in L. E. Twenty eighteen. Actually it's been quite slow arrival over here. I think you sky of picked up on it but I don't think anybody imaginative either. It's it's a massive marquis properties. But I'm looking at the Youtube. Comments are like Oh my God. They look thirty not thirteen like answer. So that's what you're thinking. Oh my God these people so old. That's the joke. Yes at my pretentious bit and say remember tales by Dennis Potter. It's not funny. Yeah yeah events isn't it? It's adults playing children which is a great conceit hard to pull off but when it works really really works. I almost Blue Remembered Hills Nine O.

"From the Mon Broadcast Center at KABC This is the frame. I'm Steven Cuevas in for John Horn on today's show as the corona virus spreads movie theaters. Remain Open but how much longer will they have films to screen then in a documentary about Luis Miranda his son lin-manuel says he shares more than a few similarities with Alexander Hamilton? What I keyed in on was his relentlessness. And when I got to the part and Ron Chernow's book where he writes his way off the island to get an education. I mean that's the part where I go. I know this dude. He raised me and will visit music festival. That's known as Europe's version of south by South West. That's Today on the frame. We'll be right back. Welcome to the frame. I'm Steven Cuevas. In for John Horn. It's been a devastating week for the entertainment industry as Kovic Nineteen forces to cancellation of public gatherings. All over the world. Movie theaters are struggling to cope with two major factors declining attendance and delayed film releases from Motion Picture Studios theaters around the globe have closed but major change like AMC and cinemark have not yet decided to close up shop here in the US. Here's John Horns discussion with senior film writer at Variety Matt. Donnelly one that we've been reporting on depicted but theaters will close regionally not a blanket. You know all the movie theaters in the country represented by trade group called NATO But we imagined that they'll they'll try to close out in pockets of the slow wave to get as much you know revenue as they can. Nato is the National Association of Theatre Owners and just a couple of days ago. They cancelled their annual convention which was scheduled for the end of the month in Las Vegas. The other factor is that a lot of major releases are being pulled from the calendar. Disney has pulled. Moulin the new James Bond Movies. Nocco come out the next fast and furious sequel. Fast Nine has moved to next year. There are a number of other movies that have been placed on hold. What kind of problems does that create for those theaters that remain open because it seems like a lot of the tentpole movies aren't going to get released? Yes the great question. I mean it doesn't incentivize an audience to brave public faces when you don't have really premium and exciting new films to show them and also let's talk about just the agrees Spending on marketing studios have already completed to promote rely on and stuff nine. They're looking at hundreds and millions of and across the board for movies that aren't going to hit theaters for another year or so. If movie theaters are considered dangerous or if they're actually closed might companies like Disney and. Maybe it's not move on. Maybe it's another movie down the line just get released on Disney plus or an equivalent streaming service. Do you think that is part of the potential conversation going forward I can tell you confidently that over the past month or so of all been you know? They won't dare speak out loud The strategy of going directly to digital. But don't forget that a lot of companies are publicly traded so they have an onus to create value for general that. They can't get their movie theaters. They might be obliged to release them through streaming for higher price point or just to incentivize customers to stay but yeah. I think absolutely this is the reason to To look at sort of Shattering will be called the traditional theatrical window. Which is where movie theaters get ninety days or exclusivity with all the movies that come out and then they moved down two places like streaming and on demand. I think he could absolutely see some of the mid range films. You take something like marbled new mutants which is Sort of young adults giving property. I don't think that anyone to expand that to blow minds in the movie theater. They could easily put that directly on Hulu wish neons and and see up taking subscribers just before we got on the phone. I looked at the stock of cinema world which runs Regal United Artists and Edwards Theatres. Its stock is down. Almost eighty percent in the last month compared to the overall market dropping about twenty-five percent cinemark another major chain has seen its stock dropped almost sixty percent and at the same time. Netflix is down just seventeen percent which is better than the overall market so it feels like Wall Street sentiment on the at least short term potential for exhibition is really grim and at the same time. A lot of movies in production are shutting down as well and that won't be felt for months if not a year down the line. Is that going to be a factor as well not just for exhibition but for streaming services? Yeah I mean we. We've been having conversations about e even take the last round of of film festivals that went up. Jones going distribution all the time to to places like Toronto telluride Sundance. I think the OC a spike in sales of those finished movies But they can put up on services today but in terms of original production places like netflix. Amazon impact will be dramatic. Episodes opened a brand new six down stage facility in New Mexico where they intended to shoot the stranger things that will be delayed. You're talking about like theory of Marquis Properties in the stream or so. I think there will be a bit of a shock to either licensed beloved prize old content to put on or a scramble to fine finish work. They can put up in the near term. It does feel like some smaller exhibition chains are trying to come up with creative solutions. Alamo Draft House said that it in its San Francisco Theatre. It's doing something where no more than two hundred people can be in the theater and it's GonNa ask people to kind of separate themselves from one another. It feels like an interesting idea. I don't know how sustainable it is. Are you hearing other things like that where people can buy seats and maybe block off the seats around them or is it just whatever you find when you get into the auditorium? I think you'll find a lot of people finding creative solutions to enjoy the game. But I think at the end of the day there's so much option And there's just such a volume of content. You can watch at home so I think it's just more about separating the the brave from those would rather stop by Saly and you and I cover the movie business. I haven't been in a theatre at least a week and a half. How are people who cover movies? Seen movies are a lot of people now watching films on their laptops as opposed to going to screenings or theaters absolutely You know I went to a screening of a short film that one of the talent agency last week and of Savonarola Laura dern who just gave everybody an elbow bump to say hello and handshake so I think people are increasingly quite. Get us about Coming together so they do a lot more digital screeners for for industry professionals. Another interesting note As of last night The South by Southwest Film Festival organized. A last minute of sort of virtual festival with an online screening library to try to give some of those Indians. That didn't get to play a chance to get in front of accredited president. Chris I think is really cool and also what kind of solution that keeps everybody healthy mad donnelly a senior film writer at Variety Matt. Thanks so much for coming on the show. Thank you stay healthy..

Get us about Coming together so they do a lot more digital screeners for for industry professionals. Another interesting note As of last night The South by Southwest Film Festival organized. A last minute of sort of virtual festival with an online screening library to try to give some of those Indians. That didn't get to play a chance to get in front of accredited president.

"marquis properties" Discussed on Bloomberg Radio New York

"Show, we speak with Tom Dunn, the owner of the Carolina Hurricanes about what he would change about the NHL. My number one thing right now is I believe that we should expand playoffs. I think it's the most exciting time for the week at creates. I think. A more compelling regular season as more people are engaged. And then the playoffs are seem to be the best time of year for our sport. We bring you the full conversation with Tom Dunton shortly. But first, let's get to the big stories of the week. Let's start with swamping Super Bowl CBS and NBC this weapons. Why why because they each have big events, and they don't want to compete against the other big events. I mean, if you're going to have the Super Bowl, you might as well have it in the year where you have something like, oh, I don't know the Olympics NBC right back. CBS doesn't want to put the Super Bowl up against Olympic coverage. Defen- be Marquis properties. They say, hey, how about we make a little trade here and probably some cash go both ways. Where we can align all of these major properties and get some good synergies. Yeah. That's the kind of thing that, you know, your your average fan would never notice. But if you look at how the sausage is made when when when networks like NBC's sell ads, they do so often in full year blocks or big bundles. Right. So if you're NBC, you can go to advertisers and say, listen, we've got this huge three week property the Olympics right before it. We've got the most watched TV of end of the year the Super Bowl and then the other events they have the Kentucky Derby the Stanley Cup finals. Whatever it is. They often sell those things in a group. And yes, if you're NBC, there's no doubt that you're gonna make more money. If you're a packaging the Olympics and the Super Bowl together. Then if NBC and CBS are reaching out to all these same companies, Budweiser AT and T all your big advertisers of essentially, jockeying back and forth. Trying to get them to commit their February. You think this is going to kind of work like a player trade NBC also gets a four PM NFC game to be named later. Little something consideration though, the TV's version of an a draft pick, and it'd be named left-handed executive. This move on now old MLB and the players union kind of reached an agreement of sorts. The trade the news. I think here in chime in I think that they're making nice before they really need to make. Know they've they've agreed to some things that are not. Let's just save the more important on both sides of the allege. Yeah, I think that's right. The the five year labor or that they have right now doesn't expire until after the twenty twenty one season. But there has been a lot of public and at the table feuding between these two sides already. It shaping up to be a rough labor negotiation and part of the kind of the mini agreement that they're they're rolling out this week is that there there's a provision in there that says they'll both start discussing, you know, bigger labor issues earlier than they typically they've agreed to begin discussing. Who knows how earnest that will be from from either side, but that lease at least shows that there's going to be a dialogue happening about things like service time manipulation and slower free agency and kind of the evaporation of these long term deals all these things that you're seeing MLB players complaining about seemingly every offset. I want to chime in on that when I know it's not a major thing. And maybe our listeners don't really know about it. But but sort of the service time there's a rule where there's a certain time when you can call a player up, and then it starts counting towards his service time, which means another get control. So oftentimes, you will see clearly a prospect who is ready for the bigs, but the team will keep him down in the minors because of this service time issue and a lot of people complain about it, but come on. It's like a no brainer from the team perspective. And if it's collectively bargained there's so much. I mean, I see it every time this complaints about it. It's collectively bargained that's the rule, and if I'm a team, why would I give up a year doesn't make sense? Let's talk about guns AGA and all people on the Jamerson what in the Winky Dink Sam happen. Happen. Case you missed it zags. They got upset by Saint Mary's. Remember that was the same team. They beat by what forty. Something like that about a month ago and the so now they're playing in the western coast conference tournament. And all of a sudden, all you know, what breaks loose. This is a fun one from a business perspective because I can I can almost promise you that. You know, there are eight other nine athletic directors in in in that conference, the west coast conference who were thrilled. That this happened team in the Gonzaga had already clinched its role. It's spot in the NCA tournament by beating Gonzaga in the finals of this tournament Saint Mary's which wouldn't have had a spot otherwise clinch their own and the way the NCAA Davies out its money conferences, get paid out by games played in the NCAA tournament and know two weeks ago or even a week ago. The west coast conference seemed like it was guaranteed one team. And now they have to teams, and if you're a bubble team somewhere else around the country when you conference you start crying. No, you just lost one spot on that bubble. And so those those units that you get so even if Saint Mary's just loses loses once a one point seven million dollar payment. They get sent out over six years to the conference might not seem like a lot. But a lot of these schools. Is a non revenue sports budget right there, for example, Pacific university in Oregon, which is in the WCTC their annual athletic revenue and expenses.
