"Lemelson foundation. This is all things considered for NPR news, I marry the weez Kelly. And I'm wanna summers. Alternative weekly newspapers are known for holding their cities institutional powers accountable from government to the other media in town. In Baltimore, the city paper circulated for four decades. And that all weekly story ended like so many others. Shuttered. The Baltimore beat stepped in to fill the void, but roughly four months later, it shuttered too. And ever since journalists have been working to revive it and this week, that happened. The Baltimore beat is back. Now as a nonprofit black led by weekly publication, available online or in print, all free of charge. Lisa Snowden is the editor in chief of the Baltimore beat, and she joins us now to discuss. Welcome to all things considered Lisa Ann, congratulations. Hi, thank you so much. So Lisa, this is a publication that is launching in Baltimore a city that is more than 60% African American. In the Baltimore beat is not the only black led publication or news organization focused on black audiences. Why does that diversity of options in a city like Baltimore matter so much? Well, I think there's a few reasons. Number one, we're not a monolith. I think that there are ways that the Afro, which has been around for over a hundred years, meets Baltimore's needs. There's the Baltimore times that does that also, but I think that we can find a particular lane with the Baltimore beat. We have city paper in our DNA. So I think that our lane is not at all to try to replace a 100 plus year old paper. Arlene is to figure out how to hold government accountable and do the things that we can do, provide deep arts coverage in the way that we can do it. I think black people deserve a multitude of media outlets. We're just trying to help contribute to that. I want to quote from part of the beats statement on values, we do not believe there is a difference between arts coverage and hard news and understand that art is inherently political. Why did you feel the need to spell that out so plainly and make that distinction? I think that draws on our alt weekly roots that this would not be a place where you would maybe define big name stars. Maybe you'd find people having shows in alleys or the sellers of buildings and both of those are important and also that art is a thing that happens just like quote unquote the news. Another thing that you talked about in that value statement is the fact that you all want to focus on the joy of being a baltimorean. So at least I want to ask you, what does that mean for you? It's a place that you have to have a sense of humor in people here are so blunt and also so real. And I feel like that's lost so much in the conversations about this city. We hear sometimes some very horrible racist things about the violence that happens here. And maybe we hear about the wire. But there's so much else that isn't talked about and we just want to give space for that. In an earlier interview, one of your colleagues told Baltimore magazine that some newspaper distribution boxes may eventually serve as community exchange boxes so that people can take what they need and leave what they can, get things like gloves and hats in the winter. What's your thinking there? So not only is there access in our boxes for information, the thing that we're writing and printing, but just like a very easy way to contribute to the community so that people can put water bottles in there, books in there. We have one already out on the streets and it has Narcan in there. And I think, you know, as people are still suffering from the economic impact of the pandemic, people are going to need that kind of thing more than ever. And you have described the beat elsewhere as a teaching newsroom. What does that mean and why does that matter? Journalism is not a career where you're going to make a lot of money. It's worth if you're black. And not only that, if you're black, you're often the only black person or maybe one of two or three others in the newsroom. And that can be a very distinct struggle. And so we really wanted the beat to be a place where black journalists can get an education can stay here if they would like to make a life in Baltimore or get their clips and maybe move somewhere else. I think that was very important to be a potential about that. Baltimore has Morgan State University, which is a historically black college right here, and so it's like I want those people that come to this community to stay here because we need their voices. Lisa Snowden is the editor in chief of the Baltimore beat which relaunched this week. Lisa, thank you so much for being here. Thank you so much for having me. The movie pray is a prequel to predator, a blockbuster Arnold Schwarzenegger hit from the 1980s. Prey is streaming now on Hulu. It's about a high-tech alien warrior landing on the Comanche plains 300 years ago. The score comes with its own backstory, as Tim grieving reports. The original predator was a vicious game hunter from outer space, equipped

Officials battle online misinformation along with wildfires
"Are these historically large wildfires continue to rage out west fifteen people have already died a whopping four million acres already devastated across California as well as Oregon where you can see right here why the mayor there declared a state of emergency, the governor also publicly pleading. For the trump administration to support its governmental emergency response officials on the ground, say Donald trump failing them through fashion. Some critics compare his sort of public denial of even admitting what's going on with the wildfires that posture to of course, is deceitful approach to cove it. Who reports today are the things are even worse than all of that because right wing conspiracy theories supported publicly by Donald, trump are leading to dangerous activity. Again, we're living in a time where misinformation can be dangerous to your health and officials are warning. They're getting flooded with false phone calls fanned by Q. Not which incorrectly try to blame the fires on trump's perceived opponents. Translation what happens on facebook doesn't always stay on facebook a real world emergency political propaganda is making it harder for these firefighters to get the real information warnings they need as they go out and do their work and risk their lives. That's why sheriff's departments are pleading with people with messages like this just stop spreading rumors stop calling nine one one with political pranks. They say it has now gotten to the point where it is hampering their bandwidth to respond to the fires in real emergencies. It's twenty twenty. So sometimes, we have to state the obvious around here. Do not call nine, one one with Q. Non trumpy fake news propaganda. You do have the right to say whatever you want. Typing it up on the Internet you do not have the right to deceitfully thwart firefighting in the middle of this very real crisis for those calling from the West Coast some of these calls have been traced. If you need to think about it like this. Misinformation is expensive in the house you save could be your own. As mentioned, we're thrilled to have married trump live in the hour but I want to begin with some of our analysts, Jason, Johnson professor of politics at Morgan, State University and Katty Kay Washington anchor for BBC News. Good evening to both you. Evening Jason There's much talk about misinformation and people don't like lying even when it's just verbal if you want to be that specific. But given these twin crises, your view of the cost of this kind of misinformation. Rex It's massive. I'm in California right now and the difficulty the difficulty that local officials are having in managing people when it comes to these wall fires is immense and is partially because accused on, it's partially because the president basically sort of thumbs his nose that these sorts of Issues v rate of destruction that is happening out here. Basically, the size of central park is being burned every other day in northern California Oregon Central Park. Every other day is being burned devastated. varies a haze over the sky on a regular basis at the bottom. Of A pool, you can see ash settling after every single night. So the idea that people are wasting public resources with crazy conspiracy theories because they think that the fires were created by you know five G. or invading Muslims or George Soros doesn't help the fact that there are hundreds of thousands of people were either going to be out of their homes or not able to stay safely in their homes. During the time, we have a pandemic where rescuing people in putting them into shelters is all the more difficult. So yeah, this is propaganda that's Live when trump lies people are dying. Well. Caddy at the White House has often tried to reposition the Cova conversation in the election as well. This hit everywhere. This is global thing. it seems that this week there is a rightful focus and scrutiny on the president's leadership on his honesty on his approach, which is relevant. As, you go into election about who you want to continue to deal with this crisis or do you want to change the commander in chief? Yell the the virus has hit everywhere but my fourteen year old daughter is an online schooling here in Washington. Her friend in France in class. A. Friend in London is in class her friend in China is in plus her friend in Senegal. is in class and a friend in Germany is in class they're all going to school. And the reason they're going to school is because those countries have handled this better. So that's a direct comparison and in a globalised world. Our children here in the United States make no mistake about it that losing out because those other kids are in class going to school at advancing while orchids not advancing. So we're kicking this down to the next generation as well but. We elect leaders to be able to walk and Chew Gum at the same time. It is totally possible that you can give people a facts that you can trust the American people with the facts of something it is at also be inspirational and motivational and lift them up with a plan and show leadership. Those two things are not mutually exclusive and I think that's what the president is mistaking when he says, he didn't want people to panic and so he downplayed the virus. And gatty talk about how that stacks up in a global context that I think is very interesting to remember, and then how people are receiving these messages reporter. Jim Acosta spoke. To some people going to the trump rally take a look. Our about him because there's no. It's a it's a fake pandemic created to destroy the United. States of America. The president said the Bob Woodward there is a virus but corona virus that it is devil that's his opinion. Chatty. Where do you start i? Mean you stop by asking all of our leaders to come out with consistent clear accurate honest messaging when I really felt for Anthony. FAUCI. In that interview because I've interviewed g and he is so careful not to wade into political waters where there's going to be a difference between him and the president because he said that will be the only story and he is trying to get out the public health story doesn't WANNA make it a political story about. A disagreement he clearly feels now he has to set a Mauka. He has to wait into the politics of this and say, no when the President says, we are turning a corner. We're not actually turney. We're in this for the long haul because when the president says, we're turning a corner when he says, we're about to get over this or that is magically going to disappear what happens that guy doesn't wear a mosque when he attends a rally because he thinks it's not there. That's the risk. Door Jason. Trump can say you know he can see the light at the end of the tunnel. All we once it's a train right it's a train coming at us. We are about to head to fall which is flu season. This is a time where you have kids going back to school but you have people who have to shelter in place more because it's cold you can't eat outside and that makes us Much more difficult and I think are the real danger here is that as we recognize that the president is grotesquely incompetent, right easies driven by sort of racial malice and paying off his friends and everything else like that. At the base of all of this, we cannot forget to key things. One that the president is still trying to steal the election with the post office that you still have. Right. Wing Supreme. Courts in Wisconsin right now that are trying to people get absentee ballots. It's you have the president, the Republican Party suing in Iowa to prevent people from getting their absentee ballots that he's still trying to steal the election at the same time that you have literally millions of. Americans. Now, out of work who be out of their homes who are being evicted, which will make it more difficult for them to. Actually vote. So as much as the president is, is a horrible human being and trying to bankrupt this country and pay off his friends and stay in office. He is also doing things isn't competence has disrupted the ability of regular people remove him from office in a democratic way. We can't ever lose sight that because we can't get rid of him everything that's happening. Now we'll be ten times worse by nature.

University officials push back on US travel ban
"You this week president trump is expected to announce an expansion of his controversial travel ban that prohibits nearly all people from selected countries from traveling to or immigrating to the United States the original travel ban was one of Mr trump's first initiatives upon taking office in focus primarily on Muslim majority countries it took years of court challenges before it was finally up held this latest iteration is focused on a range of countries NPR has confirmed that the seven countries expected to be added to the band are Nigeria Sudan Tanzania Eritrea Kyrgyzstan Myanmar and Belarus indeed some of the countries listed are known for having high visa overstay rates but some of these countries also sends many students to American colleges and universities particularly historically black colleges and universities are H. B. C. use we want to get more perspective on this so we've called on David Wilson he is the president of Morgan state university that's a historically black university in Baltimore Maryland president Wilson thank you so much for joining us I'm a show this is really an honor to talk with you about this so first can I just get your thoughts on the initial travel ban and the reporting that this band is being expanded to the countries that I just named how do you react react to this well when the initial travel ban was proposed we had a quite a few international students of Morgan who were very long and concerned and so my first thought was to pool I international community together to let them know of course that we have one big umbrella at Morgan and everyone fits under that umbrella and so they were very very pleased to hear that but of course you know they were very concerned about what it meant for the continued state in the United States at Morgan we held a roughly ten percent of our nearly eight thousand students SO it Morgan who are international representing sixty countries and of that ten percent about twenty percent of those students are from Nigeria and we have had very very strong ties with the entire continent of Africa for decades not only Morgan but many H. B. C. use the Washington post wrote a feature about Morgan state a couple of months ago and it cited that of foreign students as as an important part of the university's continued stability and growth and I'll just quote here from the peace the peace that foreign students especially from Saudi Arabia and Kuwait are a booming demographic H. B. C. use at Morgan seven hundred thirty eight international students were enrolled in the fall of twenty eighteen are from two hundred and eighty six in two thousand six and the reporter says that the students often pay full tuition a monetary boost for schools that often serve students from low income families relying on financial aid is that true is that many of your international students do pay full tuition that is true and this is been a conscious effort on our part to increase our brand on the international stage we have actually done that very fair well and we're bringing the world to market and a domestic students really appreciate the fact that we have all the different cultures on our campus international students feel very very welcome on the campus to fill that Morgan is a place where they belong and so when I heard the proposed ban that had Nigeria and it I understand that I had a senior administrative a team in Africa they just returned yesterday looking at how we could actually partner with a couple of existing African universities took a number two or three Morgan state to Greece there and so this was really devastating for us to hear and so I don't know who is really advising the administration on some of the policies and I don't know what the motives are but I just don't think this is really good for higher education in America in general and is definitely not good for H. B.

He laid me in the backseat and Jason's father driving him to the hospital became a routine of his childhood hospital not far from Franklin square.

I mean, you know, got a captured audience, you gotta hold their attention. You gotta learn how to move on your feet in quickly in improvise and all those types of things. Exactly what I would do the kids. He was in his element and little things the kids would do cracked him up. So he would scribble down ideas on posted notes all day long. They weren't fully formed jokes just colonels that he thought this is too good. I have to remember it. He kept all these tiny scraps of paper in ziplock bags my first time doing standby bag like this on stage, and I stood there. And I was doing today. All right. Let's begin Jason is miming dipping his hand bag without even looking at it. Like the way you would win picking a winner for raffle. Just read the notes, and I didn't look I would just like this.
