"Of war. This is an Oscar winning documentary. It's a long interview with former US Secretary of defense. Robert, McNamara, concerning his reflections on his political career, particularly is influence on the US involvement in the Vietnam War. It's similar to his memoir. In retrospect, any offers his view of the conflict and the. Nature of war in general so to put the Vietnam War in a larger context with the twentieth century American history. It's available on Amazon I. Actually watched this one of my first dates with my husband. This is one of my favorites of all time. It's called the war room. If you're somebody who loves politics, it's a great window kind of into the world behind the scenes of a political campaign. It's nineteen ninety-three film about Bill Clinton's campaign for the president of the US during the ninety two presidential election. It's available on Amazon and itunes. The Times of Harvey Milk so long before the pen won an Oscar for milk. That director picked up the same trophy for best documentary with this incredible portrait. Of Harvey Milk, he was the first openly gay member of the San Francisco Board, of supervisors, and the first openly gay elected official in California. History is is political. Career was cut short when he was assassinated. San Francisco Mayor George Moscone at the hand of their colleague Supervisor Dan White, but his legacy has endured longer than his brief tenure as a public servant, and his courage and passion for Social Justice has inspired countless lgbtq lgbt activists in the four decades since his murder. It's available on Amazon and itunes. Inside the White House nine eleven. This is hard to watch, but it is a must watch so in the summer of two thousand fifteen, the national archives publicly released never before seen photos of the Bush administration, reacting to the September eleventh attacks in response to the freedom of information, ask act request on behalf of frontline, so as this short report shows the shock, horror and gravity of the attacks can be read on the faces of President George W Bush Vice President Dick Cheney, their wives, Laura and Lynn National Security Advisor Condoleeza Rice C. I. A. Director George Tenet and the other senior Bush and Cheney staffers. It is really really compelling and I recommend listening to my episode with author. Garrett graff the author of the only plane in the sky, an oral history of nine eleven afterwards. It is. It's again. It's pretty powerful. These are the ones that categorized under race and culture. The first is the central park five in April one, thousand, nine, hundred and nine twenty eight year old tricia mainly was brutally assaulted and raped, as she was jogging in New York City Central Park that same night, five young men, four block and one. Hispanic were arrested for suspected gang activity in the park. So after hours of interrogation coerce confessions. Two teenage boys were charged with assault robbery, rape, sexual abuse, and the attempted murder of Mealy, so what ensued was media firestorm in which racism within the confines of the courtroom and on the front pages of the city's tabloids led to the boy's convictions. Ken Burns Documentary, Co directed with his daughter looks back at one of the most notorious criminal cases in recent memory, a decade after another man confessed to committee MMA crime and the central park fives convictions were vacated. That is available on Amazon and itunes. Thirteenth filmmaker Eva vernay provides an in-depth analysis of the ways in which the US prison system has functioned as a vehicle of institutionalized racism and inequality. It aggregates footage alongside moving interviews from a long list of brilliant academics, activists, politicians and men and women who have experienced incarceration that is on net flicks. Sixteen shots just a few months. After the death of Michael Brown, another midwestern city was rocked by the police shooting of seventeen year old Kwan McDonald, who was shot and killed by Chicago police officer Jason Van Dyke the circumstances of that shooting, and how the officers on the scene and people in power throughout the city attempted to control and cover up the narrative in its aftermath are the subject of the documentary account from the director. Rick Rowley it is streaming on showtime whose streets told by the activists and leaders who live and breathe in this movement for Justice who streets is an unflinching look at Ferguson uprising. That is available on Hulu. Fire fraud is a true crime. It's pretty much a comedy. Exploring a failed music festival turned Internet meme at the Nexus of social media influence late stage, capitalism and the morality in the Post Truth era that is available on Hulu. Let the fire burn this quite personal because it took place in Philadelphia, and I actually watched it on television, as it happened as a child so in May of nineteen, eighty-five the. Police Department attempted to evict the members of the black. Liberation Group move from the row house in a residential area. The group resisted and police unleashed gunfire tear gas and explosives on the home, which officials with the permission of the mayor and district attorney opted to let burn. Five children and six adults perished in the blaze, which also destroyed over sixty homes in the neighborhood. So this documentary account relies. Less on present day interviews narration focuses instead on the events as they happen presenting a meticulous tiktok of infuriating abusive power. It's streaming on canopy. I'm like I said it is. I still remember that still remember it was awful. This is called Paris burning. This is a documentary focusing on drag queens living in York City and their house culture, which provides a sense of community and support the flamboyant and often socially shunned performers groups from each house compete in. Balls that take us from the world fashion. That is sometimes hard to find you kind of have to. Poke around so I was having some hard times finding to this week, so tell me if you can track it down..

got mouse to weasel up there against us as witnesses hi think fraud I don't think they can identify you they don't know how many works you have on your back they don't know what color eyes you have they don't know what color hair you after you put your coat over your head turn your back to the witness stand as we cross examine we got that so now then my grandson on his own this is a true story is going to argue the case in right before he says I know beyond a reasonable doubt I got all that down so he gets up and he's talking to the jury the other fifth graders at the end of the speech he says if the warts don't fit you and we got a little long story I had to tell you this you know if I were if I were an American corporation especially a drug company that would shake me up because it just means is another Girardi in the legal I think oil in a Lindy your your take on legal high profile stories is is just unique because you've been a witness to history of the last forty years I'm interested in in your thought about what's happened to journalism I mean we've seen the rise of investigative journalism with Woodward and Bernstein and then we've kind of gone the gotcha journalism with the obsession over the rich and the famous not TMZ seems to scoop everybody is the quality of reporting you think on up curve or is it kind of pandering to the lowest conduct a common denominator we on a down curve well that's a very general question it depends on the organization that you're involved with the defense of the reporters I think that we are in a different universe than we were at the time of the OJ trial for instance there was no twenty four hour cable news presence at that time we had court TV and we had CNN and that was about it and even so we were accused at that time of having a media circus things are quite different now.

"A content warning. For today's episode. This week's episode references a lot of murders in crimes against the person like a lot if that would bring you down this might be an ideal time to go back in the vault for a second listening to an old favourite episode. On November twenty seven nineteen seventy eight Dan white, a former San Francisco city supervisor who recently resigned his position entered San Francisco's city hall by climbing through a basement window and shot and killed mayor George Moscone and supervisor Harvey milk at his trial whites attorneys claimed that Whitehead diminished mental capacity from eating excessive sugary junk food. Their strategy would become known in the law and pop culture as the twinkie defense as one of many, brilliantly bizarre, legal strategies, people have tried and sometimes even succeeded with my name's moxy. And this is your brain on facts. The freeze twinkie defense came to represent the efforts of criminals to avoid responsibilities for their actions by claiming some external force had caused them to act the way, they had the most important thing to know about the twinkie defense is that's not how it happened yet were only one minute in and were already busting myths, or as I like to say disabuse ING, miss beliefs. I don't think twinkies were ever mentioned in the testimony said chief defense attorney Douglas Schmidt who recalled ho hos and ding dongs were but not twinkies. In fact, the cream filled seemingly nuclear war resistant, confections were only mentioned in passing junk food was an insignificant part of the defense a quick mention by one of five defense, therapists, specifically psychiatrist Martin Blinder the main focus of the defense's case in may of nineteen seven. Eighty nine was the diminished capacity that white had suffered from periodic bouts of depression amounting to quote, a major mental illness. According to co-counsel, Stephen share the machinations of dirty politics at city hall. Drove him round the bend during his day on the stand. Dr Blinder, a former mayor of San Anselmo, California and one time teacher at UCF SS medical school, characterized white as his family's black sheep a man with rigid values and pent up emotions. It is daylong accounting on the stand of how whites life on raveled one small aspect of one thing that blinders said who's turned into the irrational explanation for everything that happened studies show, he said more recently in an interview that if you have a general predisposition to bi-polar mood swings things you ingest can play a part in the days leading up to the killings. The psyche. Deiontrez told the jury white cast aside is normal habits and grew increasingly slovenly quit working shunned his wife gave up personal hygiene and rather than eating his normally healthful diet indulged in twinkies and coke all symptoms. Spider, testified of depression, the junk food, he said only made white more depressed which caused him to binge on it even more even without depression. I understand that cycle. Today, a still angry blinders says, it's preposterous to think that twelve middle-class homeowner. Jurors would give killer even of Harsha pass on the basis of what he ate the night before. Why was convicted of the lesser charge of voluntary manslaughter and sentenced to nine years in prison of which he only served a little over five. Blinder rightly blames the press for repatriating the myth if I found a cure for cancer. They'd still say I was the guy who invented the twinkie defense. This wasn't the only time that unhealthy food found itself in the spotlight in nineteen eighty four a San Diego man named James Hubert. He called him until health clinic to request an appointment when they didn't call him back the same day, he told his wife society had its chance and the next day told her he was going hunting hunting humans armed with a pistol shotgun Uzi and hundreds of rounds of ammo for each he entered a busy McDonald's and immediately began.

"It was forty years ago this morning that San Francisco supervisor Dan, white shot and killed mayor George Moscone against supervisor Harvey milk inside city hall, white who had resigned his supervisor position earlier than change. His mind was upset of the mayor wasn't planning a reappointed him to the position. Former KCBS city hall reporter Barbara Taylor had covered the story and joins us now on the Newsline, Barbara good to hear from you. Yes. I did hear from you too. Thank you. Did this surprise you that that so many years later, it it resonates so much with those of us who remember it and even those who weren't necessarily around at the time you see so many, you know? Remembrances of both of these politicians. Well, of course, it is a difficult diversity being forty years ago. But I can tell you as a reporter who covered thousands of stories over the years for case to be asked that none of them are etched in my memory the way this one was it was it was profound. It was traumatic it sent the entire city into spiraling shock, and so no, I'm really not surprised at all. Does it? How did you? How did you take it? You're doing your job. And at some point it has to sink in as a city resident as well. That's right. I was on my way to city hall listening to KCBS when I heard a report that there had been shooting at city hall, and I I was just a block or so way. And I go I rushed inside the building. And at that point. We didn't really know what was going on. We we know that something very horrible had happened. We didn't really know who had been shot. We didn't know the extent of the injuries. We certainly didn't know about the massive tragedy that was about to unfold or that had unfolded. We just weren't didn't quite have that announcement yet. And so while later Dianne Feinstein Senator Feinstein who was a supervises and. Came outside the mayor's office and announced to a crowd that mayor Jorge Mosconi had been killed shot and killed I believe we're her words that supervisor Harvey milk had been shot and killed and that the the suspect was supervisor Dan, white, and I remember standing there and just the gas just one giant gasps from this small crowd came out. And at that moment the world for San Francisco changed, and it really changed forever in Dan Wieden and shooting those two individuals just really changed. The course of history we've been listening to that sound bite Barbara this morning, and it's just it's just chilling. It's very emotional. Even if you've never even heard the names of Harvey milk, and mayor Mosconi one more question for you. Give us some of the. Political background to to all this. You were at city hall for years covering news there what was it like politically that led to this? Well, I I hadn't really been at city hall that long this was forty years ago. But I was pretty familiar even. So with the dynamics the city had voted in district elections, we previously it had at large elections. And as a result of that. Dan wide was elected. He he lived in sort of a farther out part of the city. He was a fire a fireman, and he had he was a virtual unknown to the city at large, but he got elected in his district, and he continued to work and just the pressure got to him. He was pretty conservative. In fact, if you looked at the board of supervisors at that time. There was a very different mix. It wasn't as though everyone was a progressive democrat. There were people who report conservative on the board. There were people who were more liberal, and certainly George Mosconi in a heartbeat built were two of the most liberalizing Mosconi was the most liberal mayor who had ever been elected in San Francisco. So that's that was more the dynamic all of these newcomers because of district election, they all have their own agendas, and at some point Dan white decided that he just couldn't take doing both jobs, and and support his family, I or he may not have been working at he wasn't making enough money to support his family because at this time supervisor's made very ten twenty thousand dollars a year, not very much money, and he really cracked and resigned. And then. Changed his mind and decided that he wanted his job back, but only realized that this was an opportunity for him to pick someone more of his political ill. So decided not to support him. And you know, you would say in this day and age, well, that's just politics. But it obviously had a very traumatic affect our dad wide and led to this event that unfolded as a result of Mosconi deciding not to apply to that was Barbara Taylor are Casey, the former KCBS city hall reporter, Barbara Taylor..
