"That is forbidden at any time. Yeah, I know that you mentioned in your report as an example of this as a propaganda turned people against humanitarian workers. Exactly. And we have seen examples of that in a number of countries in Syria, for example, where humanitarian actors were accused of doing non humanitarian work. And that created a risk for them, there have been situations where the international Red Cross has been attacked by governments by one of the warring parties that didn't like what the ICRC was doing, and therefore spread rumors about ICRC. And when you disrupt humanitarian operations, you are actually depriving civilians of much needed assistance, and you are also creating a toxic environment. You know, you're dropping poison into the water. And that means that people don't know what information to believe anymore. And if you can not believe, in fact, you can not trust anyone. And if you can not trust, you can not begin to talk about peace. You can not have reconciliation. So it has a huge damaging impact on civilians on humanitarian action and on peace processes. With all these consequences and very difficult sequences, you still say that media outlets should not be shut down or banned. And one of the examples of course the European Commission banned Russian outlets media outlets. So what is your take on that? Well, you see, we all talk about disinformation. We see the damage that disinformation manipulated information does. But there is no common agreed definition of what is disinformation. I have been accused as the UN special rapporteur by some governments who don't like my reports who don't like my criticism that I am producing false news. Reliable news outlets are labeled as fake news. You and reports are denigrated. And government propaganda has put out as facts. So the whole issue is being turned on its head. What is right and what is wrong. There is no agreement in that. And in that kind of a situation, the best approach, the best strategy is to have free flow of information, particularly information sources that are verifiable that are reliable. And educate and empower people with digital literacy with media literacy with information literacy so that they can make their judgments to try to turn off media to censor is a very dangerous thing because every government will want to censor that part of information that they don't like. The powerful will want to stop criticism of themselves. And that's when you land into trouble. In the European Union, media is free. There are many different points of view. RT, yes, RT is a source of disinformation, misinformation, false propaganda, but who would have believed arty. That's the question. If European democracy is strong and has strong media freedom and that is Europe's position, then why shut down media outlet totally allow people to make their judgment allow the regulators, the independent regulators to judge what can or can not be said. That is what, for example, Switzerland is doing. Another example from your report, the metra, the company that owns Facebook, the sensor, of course, the posts and from ordinary people and organizations. But they allowed explicitly allowed Ukrainians to express their anger towards Russian military. The position that I and my predecessor in this position have also taken is that platforms matter, Twitter, Google, and others should be guided by human rights. They should apply human rights standards.

"You got to remember, Wendy started that fundraiser. She had $0. We had to re zeros. I want to also the audience to know the financial status of the rittenhouse family. You dropped out of school to support your mom, is that correct? I did. I was working three jobs. I was working at the YMCA rec plex and I was doing some landscaping gigs off the side. So that's the net worth of the rittenhouse family. And then and I'm not saying that diminishingly on this offering context that then the only opportunity you had to get out of jail and get counsel was external support and no one really knew where the money went. It went to John pierce and to linds ego. The Kyle, I'm just sensing this and you could correct me if I'm wrong, you're calm cool and collected until this topic.

So more there you can listen, of course, on the Charlie Kirk show podcast and we'll be dropping it here and we're honored to have an exclusive conversation with him. One of the stories that's been popping up is Arizona state university. Many of the students at Arizona state university will be playing more clips throughout the hour with Kyle rittenhouse, and we're going to get into so much more news as well. But the students at Arizona state university metro date that ASU they have come out and maybe they want to be sued. Maybe they want to be thrown for libel. They say we have been contacted by many media organizations asking for different statements regarding our protest against Kyle rittenhouse. Here's our position. We will not stand for a white supremacist killer on our campus. Really, white supremacist. What evidence do you have of that? Who is basically Kyle's best friend? I'd love for metra day ASU to tell me that. In our view, the rittenhouse shooting is an analogous to the Greensboro massacre. Where 5 antiracist protesters were killed by clan members that were later acquitted by an all white jury. Similar to the Greensboro massacre, the rittenhouse case is a failure of the justice system to punish white fascist vigilante violence. You see, you can only believe things like this if you go to college.

And of course right at the center there at the hub of it all was chicago. It's hard to believe. But as recently as the nineteen sixties there were six passenger train stations in downtown chicago today. All passenger trains that come into the city from beyond the suburbs. Go through the last one standing union station which is now owned by amtrak. It's designed including this now. Demolished concourse was right along the river there and the colonnaded main building which is still standing right behind it. In this picture of those things recall the grandeur of rail terminals in those glory days of designed to wow the traveler of the way many airports do today met with. Certainly the goal of another neoclassical designed terminal. Check this one out owned by the chicago and north western railway you know classical buzzards and it stood at what is today. Ogilvie transportation center which is operated by metra. That station included ornate concourses. Waiting rooms even dedicated spaces for barbers and hairdressers. People traveling across the country The chicago north western railway traced its roots to chicago's very first railroad. The galena chicago union established back in eighteen forty eight. By chicago's first mayor actually will be ogden. Certainly the golden age of travel there and then another key player. Of course you hear references pop culture all the time the illinois central oh absolutely That country that company billed itself as the main line of mid america. It was a dominant player. Both in passenger and freight rail their main passenger terminal was called central station once stood just just south of grand part right on the lakefront there. The railroad built this mammoth terminal in one thousand nine hundred three in part to accommodate the influx of visitors. That were expected for the world's fair that year you'll notice almost all of these terminals have clocks or clock towers so people hurrying to catch trains didn't have to fumble around for their pocket watches that of course they had watches it. All central station was also an important point of entry for many african americans who came to chicago from the south during the great migration with like so many of its contemporaries central station met the wrecking ball. In this case in the mid one thousand nine hundred seventy s amtrak diverted there trains to union station but there is still an active platform. Eleven street serving the metra electric line and i gather it's the inspiration for that residential development around their central station. Which i believe. Richard m daley lived there for a while and not to be confused with grand central station. Of course right. That's right and yes. We had our own grand central station. here in chicago. Not new york's wasn't the only one ours was at harrison and wells on the western edge of the loop. Read along the river for about eighty years. It was just north of if you know we're river city's development is today Traffic declined grand central after world war. Two this photo with the board of trade there in the background was taken in nineteen sixty seven at the end of the stations life. It was torn down in nineteen seventy one and this is one of several places in the city. were abandoned. Railroad land is being redeveloped during construction of the new development on this old site buried. Stones from grand central station were actually unearthed and they've been re purposed for a river walk. One chicago train station of actually is still standing So in addition to union station is dearborn station. South loop although of course. It's on train station anymore. You can see its clock tower visible all the way from the north side of lube looking south down on dearborn but what happened to the top of that clock tower. Take a look at this early photo. And you'll notice it once had this huge wooden flemish roof on top of it but in one thousand nine hundred twenty two. It caught fire. Look at these incredible photos from the scene as crowds gathered. Luckily firefighters were able to save the building. But but not that tower roof. I the nineteen seventy s. Most of the train. Shed was demolished but the facade and portions of the terminal were preserved as part of a mall. Serving printers row by the building is still called dearborn station. In fact peres as you just pointed out. Many old stations live on in the names of new developments of the one. You mentioned central station. Just south of grand park word. Mayor daley used to live and then a new apartment building at harrison and wells is using the grim central name

the Priest Behind the Big Bang Theory
"You ever heard of a man named George la- Metra perhaps pronounce differently with people who are better than French than I am? He might be the greatest scientist of the twentieth century. You've probably never heard of ever heard of the big bang theory. Yeah. This guy was kind of behind it. Oh, and one more thing to blow your mind, he was a Belgian Roman Catholic priest. I love when we blow open false dichotomies on this podcast. It's like the astronomer Michelle Nichols told us on the podcast, just because you are a scientist doesn't mean you can't be religious to. Totally and lameta was a busy guy not just in science and religion. But in lots of different ways lameta was awarded a Belgian work cross as an army officer in World War One. And after that, he earned a couple of college degrees in math and philosophy after that he was ordained as a priest and after that he got permission to study at the prestigious Harvard observatory while working on a PHD in physics from MIT. How's that for as may? But the real reason I'm telling you about this guy is because of what he did in nineteen twenty seven. That's what he released an article, titled a homogeneous universe of constants mass and increasing radius accounting for the radial velocity of extra galactic nebulizer, quite the title. The paper said that the universe is expanding. And after he wrote it lameta started to wonder when and how that expansion started in nineteen thirty one he wrote a collection of essays about the beginning of the universe which he called now without yesterday or the day without yesterday. Day after a few more scientists pitched into build up the idea it turned into the big bang theory. Unfortunately, la- metro was in the wrong place at the wrong time. He wasn't even eligible to win a Nobel prize in nineteen twenty-seven because Tronto me wasn't considered a part of physics at the time. How crazy is that? And Edwin Hubble guy credit for providing the observational basis for all the stuff lameta had crunched the numbers on we wouldn't have Hubble's law or Hubble's constant without la- Metra's work. But at least I Stein was a fan after the metro described his theories at a talk in nineteen thirty-three. Einstein said, quote, this is the most beautiful and satisfactory explanation of creation to which I ever listened on quote, a satisfying end to a beautiful story. You know, the day without yesterday isn't just a prettier version of saying the big bang theory. It's also a better name for a sitcom. Why? You went there. I didn't think he would go
