"He said yesterday on MSNBC about Tucker Carlson and Fox News channel, the number one rated cable news network in America. The guy's nuts. I mean, really, you're going to take this seriously in any way, but he's dangerous because he's got a lot of people who believe in this nonsense. I actually think he's crazy. But he's an crazy and he's a danger to the United States of America. And since we can't take him off the air, we ought to boycott Fox. And I've had nothing to do with Fox for many, many years. I won't buy a product. That's advertised on Fox, but unfortunately, since I never watched Fox, I don't know what's advertising or not. But these people mean to harm the United States of America. And they're far worse than either either what Carlson was saying there. It goes to anti semitism with the attacks on the synagogue in Pittsburgh. It goes to the murders and buffalo this week. But it also goes to supporting Vladimir Putin in his murder of hundreds of thousands of people in Ukraine and driving people out. This is a bad guy and Fox is a bad company, and they ought to be treated accordingly. They are the enemy of the United States of America. They are the now, you don't understand, the millions of people who watch Fox, he's branding us the enemy of the state. We are guilty of treason where the enemy of the United States of America. Rupert Murdoch and Fox News is a bad company that he doesn't watch, he doesn't, you know, the stupidity of saying, I don't buy any products advertise on Fox News, but I don't know what they are 'cause I never watch Fox News. He doesn't even have the ability to recognize when an ignoramus he sounds like by saying that. That reminds me 40 years I've had people say, I never want to listen to your show. Now, last Thursday, and when you said, and I never listen to you Gallagher. It just laughable. You don't even realize how dumb you are when you say that. He watches Fox News, and he hears things that come from Tucker Carlson's show like this World Health Organization take over of health policies when it comes to a pandemic. Have you been following the WHO, Biden administration saga? Because if so, I hope you'll join me because I've tried to follow it. It's a little bit in the weeds, but it's worth a conversation. And we ought to have it. Let's have that conversation right here and right now. Quick before Howard dean takes us off the air. Or before Carl Cameron has me arrested in jail. We're in the relief factor dot com studios. Our number is 806 5 5 mic. When hit with the truth of these text messages coming in today on the MyPillow text line are so great. How about this one when hit with the truth? Democrats flail and carry on like the vampire hit with holy water. And here's a nice one from Rick in Minnesota. Hey Mike. I'm taking a road trip today. I have the privilege to listen to your show again, usually I'm at work. It's like talking to an old friend. Take care. Rick, you have no idea how much that means to me. Thank you for your kind words. Let's talk about the WHO. Let's talk about the new target. From the left, it's Fox News, it's conservative voices. It's TV hosts like Tucker Carlson. He's become their boogeyman. What do you make of it? Do you think Howard dean's right? Is Fox News the enemy of the state? Is Carl Cameron Wright? Tucker Carlson should be jailed? For his speech? That's a journalist, by the way, Carl Cameron, who said that. One 806 5 5 mic, 806 5 5 6 four 5 three.

Chuck Schumer Pens Letter to Fox News Executives

"To Rupert Murdoch, the chairman of Fox corporation. Lachlan Murdoch executive chairman and CEO of the Fox corporation. Suzanne Scott, CEO of Fox News media, and Jay Wallace, the president and executive editor of Fox News media. Those executives at Fox received a letter. From one of the most powerful U.S. senators in the country today. New York's Chuck Schumer. He writes dear mister Rupert Murdoch at all. I write to urge you to immediately cease the reckless amplification of the so called great replacement theory on your network's broadcasts. Proponents of this white nationalist far right conspiracy theory believe that a complicit or cooperative class of elites are advancing a plot designed to undermine the political power and culture of white Americans. A recent AP poll found that nearly a third of American adults believe that a group of people is trying to replace native born Americans with immigrants for electoral gains. I urge you to take into consideration the very real impacts of the dangerous rhetoric being broadcast on your network on a nightly

"Did you ever expect the 2000 mules would get the kind of response it's getting dinesh? Well, it was really hard to say, Mike, because I knew that the content of the movie was explosive. In other words, it was bringing a factual bearing on this issue that has haunted the American mind for two years. I mean, we were showing never before seen video. That's the official surveillance video of the states themselves. It's authenticity not even open to question. So I knew the material was radioactive. It was hot. I'd got balls of censorship that had been erected around this issue. It is the most banned topic in America. I knew the movie would have to be released in a completely novel way. So I'm delighted that, I mean, it's all jumbled right normally we release in the theater, then three months later, we release DVDs and digital downloads, but no, we first had a virtual premiere, then we have digital downloads, people are buying DVDs, and now we're going into the theater 400 theaters for showings a day, and by the way, if we do well this weekend, which I really hope we will be in even more theaters next

"Of view he heard on Fox. And then he would adopt it. And Hannity would have regular phone calls with Trump to advise Trump on what to do, so it's this really confusing cycle of who needed who more who used who more, what do you make of it? You know, the answer to that question is an answer to how it could be that Rupert Murdoch, both opposed Trump's candidacy, but gets credit for creating it. And what I mean by that is that as people might remember, Donald Trump already plenty famous from the apprentice, so let's not take any credit away from NBC. But ailes puts starts putting Trump on its morning show Fox and Friends on Monday mornings. Trump partly wages his sort of birther campaign, this idea that Barack Obama's birth certificate was a lie and he wasn't born here. He forwards that partly on Fox again, caveat, he was doing it elsewhere, but Trump sort of becomes a news personality through Fox and through the sensibility of Fox. And so therefore Trump who already has a natural ability to kind of hit certain Americans in the gut and really speak to their wants, needs, and wishes for themselves, their aspirations. He's coming of age in this fox demographic as a national figure, so he really understands that Fox audience and ultimately he will understand that audience as well as ailes does may be a little better. So now you have the tail wagging the dog. And there's one interesting factual note historical note is where ales once in a while will pull back some of his personalities when he thought they were getting two one sided or two in with the political party or personality. Ailes was now fighting for his job because a bunch of stories that erupted after one of his co hosts one of his hosts Gretchen Carlson alleged that he had sexually harassed her. More women step forward. So Alice is now fighting for his job. So he can't rein in the network during the summer of 2016..

"Trump and Murdoch had a relationship that preexisted Fox News. Through the New York Post, which Murdoch bought and as you say, Roger Stone, who had worked with the Reagan campaign, became a great source of political insight information for the New York Post. And then Trump became this really important figure in the New York Post during the period when he was presenting himself as a real estate mogul and a wealthy Playboy, so can you talk about the relationship in the New York Post Trump era, between Trump and Murdoch. Yeah, and I would say at that point, I was there working for the paper briefly, and was on page 6 in part of the Murdoch era. And there's these great stories where Trump would call reporters and pretend to be someone else, right? His publicist. He didn't have to do that with us. It was like the bat phone. Trump would just call. And he was constantly feeding out items. And for Murdoch Trump was content. I don't think he respected him or didn't show much respect for him as a businessman. But Trump was content and I would submit that Trump would not have become the figure he became without the New York Post, because before Twitter, there was the post, and the post was about grabbing attention in the information economy. And it was sensational claims that we're going to create big headlines and take over the front page. It had a rat a tat tap flow that obviously Twitter is like way beyond, but it was an early version of that and to Trump learns through Rupert's tabloid. And the daily news to it to a point, but really the post invented it, Rupert imports this to America. This style, he learns how to be a modern media figure, and I'd say he really owes that to Rupert Murdoch. Jared Kushner had a preexisting relationship with Rupert Murdoch. Jared Kushner briefly owned the paper the New York observer. And during that time, you write that Jared consulted with Murdoch to get advice about how to run a paper. So I know you worked at the observer. Did you work there during that period when Jared owned it? Sadly, no, I was there in the Peter caplan era, the glorious Peter caplan era, it's a famous era at that paper. No, I was not there, but yes, Jared Kushner sets out to really make Rupert his mentor and Jared and Ivanka become close with Rupert and his wife at the time Wendy dang. So close, and this becomes an issue when Trump gets into office that Ivanka is on the trust for the children that Rupert had with Wendy dang, grace and Chloe. She's literally one of the members of their trust. As if she were a daughter. As if that's how close they were, you know? And just think about that. And he's controlling so much media that can be so helpful to the family. So that's how close it gets. You know, you write about the ambiguity about whether Fox needed Trump more than Trump needed Fox. You know, Fox needed Trump to build its ratings because Trump had such a big following and was so controversial and extreme that, you know, talking about Trump all the time and supporting Trump really got people going. Macarthur emotional. It got more people watching. And Trump needed Fox to amplify and support Trump's point of view, but Trump's point of view was often the point.

"Once Trump is in The White House. They do really become pretty close. No one's going to control Trump or dictate what Trump does. Vice versa. Trump is not going to fully be able to tell Fox what to do, but there is this fascinating feedback loop that is allowed to happen. Everyone watched this happen in real time, but Fox News would sort of go in a certain tangent and if that tangent was really striking a chord with the base, then Trump would repeat it. Sometimes Trump kind of knows and has got what's going to work. So sometimes he'd jump right on it and you could see the words go from Fox News through to his Twitter feed. And sometimes Fox would find itself on the wrong side of Trump. So it would have to scramble to say good with Trump's base. I mean, voting's one example, right? Murdoch would not listen to Trump when Trump asked him to rescind some calls on election night showing Joe Biden was going to win. But then Fox really scrambled back to Trump's camp because its audiences where Trump is. So it becomes as fascinating dance. Are there favors that you think the Trump administration did for Murdoch? Because Fox News had been so pro Trump. After nothing. After not being pro Trump. Yeah, well, there are a couple of things that people point to, I would say they're not the clearest cases, but there are things people point to. For instance, the Disney Fox deal. Was a pretty big deal needed some regulatory approvals. And fox's competitors felt like that approval went through super fast. Super fast. Everyone disputes that fox's corporate suite will say that people don't realize that there was a lot of work going on behind the scenes. They weren't seeing, but competitors certainly thought that was very swift and they attributed it to his relationship with Trump. There was one of his rivals, Sinclair broadcasting, was trying to build out and buy a bunch of stations. We still have some regulations on how many stations people can own. They wanted to make a big merger with another television company. That was blocked. Some people thought Rupert had a hand in that. There was never really a smoking gun there. But if Trump gave Rupert anything, it was the life's blood of his business, which was ratings, which equaled revenue and one thing we haven't mentioned is Fox News's hands down the number one news network in this country and it got even bigger under Trump. Let's take another short break. If you're just joining us, my guest is Jim rutenberg, a contributing writer at The New York Times and New York Times Magazine. His reporting along with Jonathan Mueller is the basis of a new CNN plus streaming series about the Murdochs. We'll be right back after a break..

"And puts the kind of company papers behind this candidate, but then expects certain things in return. He expects radio regulations to be loosened, which, you know, the tight regulations on how many radio stations the company can or can't own. And many western democracies, including Australia, and gets these regulations loosened by putting in his preferred candidate and what his preferred candidate displeases him, he famously says I got him in I'll turn him out. So this is what Rupert sort of learns is what the media business is about. Very fascinating, and he very much wanted to please his father and his father, as you'll see in the documentary, which I think this stuff is fascinating. His father was a really hard guy to get close to. And had very high standards that Rupert wanted to live up to, Rupert interestingly has his own little rebellion. He goes off to Oxford and it sort of falls in with the Leninist crowd briefly. But he does some newspaper work. His father sees that work before he dies and says to his wife, according to the family lore, by God, the boy has got it. The father dies and Rupert comes to inherit the small newspaper company, the father had on the side. And from that Rupert builds his empire. His father died in 1952, how old was Keith Murdoch how old was his son Rupert? His father is in his late 60s and Rupert is in his early 20s. So Rupert Murdoch takes over his father's papers in Australia. Expands into England, takes over tabloids there, including the sun, and uses them in a political way. To endorse candidates, whose views he agrees with, or he thinks, will be helpful to Murdoch's goals and expanding his the reach of his media companies. So a journalist had quoted Murdoch as having said, I've never asked a prime minister for anything. I think Murdoch denied saying that, but the journalist sticks by the quote, you say, Murdoch didn't need to ask, because prime ministers who Murdoch helped elect new what he wanted. What's an example of.

"And ailes was nothing, if not, a seriously hard knuckled partisan player. But this is, in my view, a new development at Fox. Well, we had to take a short break here, but there's a lot more to talk about. If you're just joining us, my guest is New York Times, writer at large, Jim rutenberg, he's a consulting producer for the new CNN plus documentary series the Murdochs, empire of influence, which is based on the lengthy New York Times Magazine investigative article that rutenberg co wrote with times reporter Jonathan Mueller back in 2019. We'll be right back after a short break. I'm Terry gross, and this is fresh air. Reveal the economic patterns all around us. While you swipe right and left, understand money better with the indicator, one of NPR's daily podcasts. More voices, all ears, NPR podcasts. Let's get back to the interview I recorded yesterday with The New York Times reporter at large Jim ruttenberg. He's a consulting producer for the new CNN plus documentary series the Murdoch's empire of influence, which is based on the lengthy New York Times Magazine investigative article that rutenberg co wrote with times reporter Jonathan Mueller back in 2019, the documentary series is streaming now on CNN plus and will later be shown on CNN. So, you know, we've talked about Rupert Murdoch and his children. Let's talk a little about Rupert Murdoch as the son of his father, Keith, Keith owned a couple of newspapers in Australia. And Rupert learned from his father, who was right wing, how to use his paper for political gain and monetary profit, talk about his father's politics. He was a member of the eugenics society of Victoria. And once wrote that the great question facing Britain was, will she, if needs be fight for a white Australia? Yeah, that is, that's a fascinating history about his father. He was part of that eugenic society. The white Australia idea was, again, a big thing in the popular press at the time, the UK press barons were interested in that as well, and Rupert did not submit to an interview, so I wonder what he would say about that. I think I gather he would say that his father was from a different era. Rupert Murdoch had proudly championed certain Aboriginal causes in Australia early in his career, but that is part of the family history, but what Rupert certainly took from the family history was how to use media power to gain corporate power and vice versa. His father helped create the first national news chain in Australia. And at the time, newspapers were local and his father working for corporate overlords, but he was there chief guy, so he didn't own this, but he was corporate, very important part of this corporation, and he built the first national chain and this was at the time shocking to some people that some national voice is going to speak in our local community very interesting because we have the same issue now with Fox News being so important nationally as local newspapers die, but there's so many echoes between his father's time and Rupert's time. But his father also, for instance, decides he's going to get behind a prime.

"Reasons why men should boost their testosterone levels by shining laser red laser light on their testicles and I mean, that's just bizarre. But where is any editorial control now? Well, I will leave the tanning bed to everyone else's imaginations. I will say that this is an important I guess you could say test for Fox, but it's been, look, I've watched that network carefully. Since at least 1999, my years at the observer when I really started covering them. And so I know I know how it's shifted. And this is really far from what the network used to look like. And again, the network was always, it was built to shake up the media establishment to offer this as ailes and Murdoch correctly sought a part of the country that since at least the next few years felt very left out of the media discussion. They didn't have a network that addressed their worldview at all. And I would submit that there was always been a place for that, especially when it started. But this, let's take the voting. The coverage was really of the alleged fraud, which didn't exist in a substantial way. The coverage was not quite always Biden didn't win, but these are some real questions and how can we trust them? And if one were to watch Tucker's show every night in November as I did and then did again, he alone, you could see that he's got millions of viewers and he went many nights he would go into these tangents about how you can't trust the voting. I don't know if it was rigged, but you know, that's a legitimate question. It really feeds this anxiety in the sort of Trump world that Trump's voters that this election has been stolen. He doesn't have to say Biden didn't win. You know, he wasn't fast to call Biden president elect along with many others at the network and in the Republican Party. But so that is, I don't know that we would have if ailes would have allowed that to go as far..

"At the last minute, Loughlin pulls back. And decides he can't do it. The reasons we've heard are very like everything in this family, when you report about them, different camps say different things. From block one's world, the answer is, you know, this is a lot of money. I mean, this is billions of dollars. You have to buy them out to buy them out. The view among people who are close to James would be Loughlin doesn't really want to, maybe he doesn't really want to have all this. Maybe eventually he wants out. So whatever the answer, this is very important for us in the here and now, because there's an interesting thing about the way Rupert set up the company. He can't be out voted, but it's a family board with these children. But Rupert can not be outvoted. Once Rupert dies, each child has an equal say in the future of the company, so that means when Rupert passes, you could have this fight all over again and the company could conceivably be taken in a different direction. Okay, well, if nothing else, that should give Succession more seasons. I know they're going to run out of material because we've always been the Jonathan Mueller, my co writer and I on this piece have always suspected that the succession writers have some mole in the family because it's just too many things they seem to know. Though, the way this family plays out is the way a screenwriter would imagine it because it is that much drama, it has that much glamour, you know, we talked about the boat. You know, where Rupert falls down, it's like, of course it's like this incredible sailing vessel with a climbing wall and custom cabin, of course, and even a swimming pool, and, you know, Rupert falls in the middle of the Caribbean, it's not rough seas, shall we say. So it's just got, it's got all the drama you want in television, but democracy hinges on its future. So who is controlling the company now is it Rupert Murdoch is a Loughlin Murdoch who is kind of the heir apparent now and has more power in the company. Increasingly, it's Loughlin, but Rupert is ever present. Currently, the word and media land is that Rupert's stepping back some, I would caveat that by saying it, we've heard that over the years and in his mid 80s, for instance, and he would time and time again come roaring back in when he saw that he needed to be there or he didn't like the way things were going, but increasingly this is becoming Lachlan Murdoch's company. Do you think that Loughlin Murdoch has changed Fox News?.

Scientist Joe Fontaine on How Climate Change Impacts West Australia's Biodiversity

"Hi this week. The fires in north america continued to blaze and temperatures in places went to heights. Hardly seen before. So what about here. Both in the east and west where we experienced similar heat and firestorms. Dr joe fontaine is an ecologist originally from oregon now at murdoch university in perth. Well here in the south west of australia we know that the climate's been drying since the mid seventies and we also know that temperatures been going up and one of the things about this region is that we know it's the early canary in the coal. Mine it has been undergoing these events and this process much more so than a lot of other parts of the planet in part because it's a mediterranean climate and so impacts of the climate change for example. We know that. Say the perth airport here. A one degree change in the average has more than doubled the number of days over forty degrees celsius since the early nineteen hundreds that's substantial and that has substantial impact on our biodiversity. Where'd you go to look to your search because vast area to cover isn't it it is it's a treat. I've been really lucky. So i came from overseas originally and then within two and a half days of lending in perth i was in a car and i was headed up to the mid west. So north of perth. This beautiful shrub lands beautiful beaches and really amazing plant diversity. And that's where. I started working and we were doing experimental fires and then in the year sense of migrated south closer to town and i work in woodland's around the city and also in the forests east of the city. Well south of here in purse. You've got a biodiversity hotspot global one. The most amazing variety of plants on have you looked into that area as well absolutely. We're surrounded by biodiversity hotspot. If you just go on the north side of perth in the woodland's here. A ten meter by ten major area can have one hundred species of plants. A hundred when i go home to california and visit my family i love it. I love the landscape. But i have to look around and go. Oh sorry plants. you're a little bit boring.

"Are they great? Relationship. With the top brass at Fox. I don't know. Uh, the Murdoch family. I did meet Mr Murdoch. He couldn't have been nicer and by the way, really smart. Um, really sharp. Suzanne Scott. Absolutely Bryant. Very decent, very kind really knows what she's doing. I go up and down the ladder. It is one of the senior people said there. I Don't cause them any problems. Of course I don't I do my job, Whether it's with West with one and cumulus here behind the microphone, whether it's with Blaze TV in the living T V show. Whether it's On Fox, Whether it's with Simon and Schuster in the book that I have coming out. Next week. I do my work. I do my job because what I care about is you the audience, but I'm not going to be muffled because Some clown at The Washington Post named Jeremy Bar used to write for the Hollywood reporter. Right, Very stupid, incoherent. Bizarre pieces like this. Now, based on the input that I heard from many of you. You actually liked this story because he paints me as this independent person who's not going to be silent. So he gets that right? But here's the thing. Excuse me. Nobody's trying to silence me. Nobody is trying to silence me. Not one point Maybe there was a little bit of this when I was campaigning for a friend of mine who was running for office. I think that's the only time maybe there's one other one with a different company that But unrelated to Fox. So there's no problem whatsoever.

"So just to recap long tawdry story of australia and the internet so rupert murdoch who is of course australian and i you know kind of coincidentally also six hundred. He is the Well he's pretty is pretty burs very close very close. Who's love journalism refusal. He started it was his first newspaper. Australian i know he is yes yes he inherited from his father. Oh okay from kevin murdoch. And then he bought sun in brittany brought. Some venture eventually ended up in a battle with with robert maxwell and one that the sun but he built his empire first austrailia and of course now the wall street journal fox He is your post. The times of london does on a media. Baron and apparently has quite a bit of clinton loss in australia. Because he yeah. He convinced the australian parliament to consider a bill which was likely by the way to be Voted on this week and pass that would essentially Establish a link tax to companies like google and facebook co published news snippets. They would not the the value. The sent to newspapers and magazines would not be a compensated. Any way it merely the fact that they're using the content some small amount of that content in their search results or in their links That the parliament said well. We're going to say you got pay for that. Google is the first to capitulate first threatening. We're gonna we're gonna retract search. We're gonna if this passes. We're going to leave australia. Apparently they didn't either didn't work or they didn't. They lost their nerve. Because shortly thereafter they made a deal for paying some unnamed some to murdoch and other publishers thought to be fairly hefty amount of money tens of millions of dollars to the benjamins tens not hundreds tents. All right well but a two platforms times ten times five years or something. It adds up. Buddy was one of those deals where there's a face-saving going on as well because oh we're going to work together we're gonna create stuff.

Australia is demanding tech giants pay for news. Google relented, Facebook didn’t

"A dispute between lawmakers and american tech giant's took a dramatic turn this week for months. The government has been debating a new media code that would force the likes of google and facebook to pay traditional news outlets win linking to their content. The code was approved on wednesday by australia's lower house of parliament and is expected to pass in the senate next week on the same day. Google announced a three year. Deal with news court. The rupert murdoch owned conglomerate that has a big presence in australia's broadcast market google's decision to pay up in line with the proposed legislation was seen as a move to placate lawmakers but facebook took a different approach. Australians waking up yesterday to see the news wouldn't have actually seen any news if they get their news from facebook because on that day facebook decided to block all news articles australia. Tom wainwright is our media. Editor facebook tried to ban just news websites. That was the intention but it eased some kind of machine learning method which didn't seem to go very well because as well as banning news sites they banned all kinds of other things charities the fire service health services a project for children with cancer and most of those were reasonably quickly corrected npr thames. The damage was done people outraged. Why exactly where people outraged well. People are outraged about fact that so many things have been blocked the whence pace to be blocked but people are saying that in the middle of a pandemic is obviously not a great time to be blocking legitimate news sites providing true information about things. You know what the state of current lockdown laws are or where to get your vaccine that kind of thing. Scott morrison the prime minister not surprisingly is capitalizing on this. The idea of shutting down the sort of sorts digest today as some sort of threat. We'll have a strategy is reactive at. He's keen to make this as much of an international question as he can and he's pointing out to other countries are considering these codes as well and and wrestling with the same dilemmas. So i think australia is hoping that other countries will take it side in this battle and so what did facebook say about. How did they explain itself. Facebook says the australia's position basically rests on a misunderstanding about the relationship between facebook and publishers. And they say the actually. When facebook publishes a link to an article is the publisher actually benefiting from that not facebook and so they think that they should be the ones who are required to pay publishers for linking to publish it stories in fact they say the australia last year they reckon that they generated more than five billion referrals to australia new sites which they say would be worth about four hundred million australian dollars and they say actually if publishes thing that somehow getting a deal from this they should just stop publishing their stories to facebook. They're not under any obligations. Have their stuff on that. But for its part. Google made a different decision. Well that's interesting google's done exactly the opposite you know the tech firms faced with this in some ways. Impossible demand know they were told to pay up or take their business elsewhere. Facebook decided it was probably less bad to shut down its news links than it was to set the precedence of coughing up. Google the opposite choice. And it's this week a deal with news coal. Which is rupert murdoch's news organization and smaller deals with of the news organizations the terms of which have been fully disclosed. But the gist seems to be that. They'll basically pay them lots of money and in return they'll be allowed to carry on listing their news articles. And what do you make of those different approaches to this threat of of the differing actions that google and facebook of taking on this i think really reflect the kinds of business that they're in for face but they say the news actually is quite a small part of what they do is less than four percent. They say of what you see on your news feed for google. I think search engine. That wasn't allowed to show links twenty news articles wouldn't be much of search engine and you can imagine people pretty quickly abandoning google and going to something else like say being which is owned by microsoft which has been a chilly diversities these australian reforms. So i think google just decided that it was too big a hit for it to take facebook decided to gamble and i think we'll see in the next few days whether this gamble pays

Facebook Calls Australia's Bluff

"I don't know if you remember that story about that. Australian law where they were going to make tech platforms pay money to publishers. If they even linked to content from an australian publisher. You might recall that. Google said that it would consider completely going dark in australia. If the law came into force you might recall that. I didn't really have an opinion on that. But i kind of wanted both sides to call each other's left just to see what would happen if google went dark and a whole country. Meanwhile facebook was making similar noises about blocking news items in the news feed. It's been one of those rolling stories where every day there was seemingly another new wrinkle to it and a new headline so i have been skipping talking about it because it was always just so incremental until now that is ahead of this proposed law which again has not been passed yet. Facebook has preemptively band. Australians from being reviewing news and all users from sharing and viewing news on news pages quoting the associated press australian. Publishers can continue to publish news. Content on facebook but links and post can't be viewed or shared by australian audiences. The us space company said in a statement. Australian users cannot share content from domestic or international news sources while international users outside. Australia cannot share news from australian sources quote. The proposed law fundamentally misunderstands the relationship between our platform and publishers. Who use it to share news content facebook's regional managing director william eastern said. It has left us facing a stark choice. Attempt to comply with the law. That ignores the realities of this relationship or stop allowing news content on our services in australia. With a heavy heart we are choosing the latter and quote so much hilarity than ensued. Because after facebook brought the band down in its algorithm systems. Facebook ended up banning. Its own facebook page on facebook in australia because it in fact publishes news but at the same time australian authorities in public health weather and other non publishing media areas say facebook has been removing their posts from their feeds as well. So it's not just say newspapers that are seeing their content

Facebook Takes A Hard Line Against Proposed Australian Law

"Facebook has abruptly cut off news to and from a continent. Facebook is blocking users in australia from sharing or reading news stories there several parts to this australian. Publishers cannot post links to their own stories. Ordinary citizens in australia cannot post links to any news stories and in fact people anywhere in the world cannot post news stories that come out of australia. The decision shocked australia news outlets in a huge change for social media in australia. Facebook has blocked news content from being shed on its platform from facebook has taken a stunning step of banning australian uses and publishes from viewing or sharing news articles on its website. What's going on here we've called. Npr tech correspondent shannon bond. I and before we begin we should note that facebook. It's a financial supporter of npr. We cover them like any other companies shannon. Good morning. good morning steve. What caused facebook's move well. Australia is weighing. This proposed law that would force tech companies like facebook to pay big publishers. For linking to their stories this law is trying to address this long running criticism from media companies you know that facebook and google. Npr sponsoring these big tech platforms. Have just sucked up so much of the advertising revenue media outlets around the world. Have these concerns that that's really hurt. The news business news websites just can't compete for advertising with tech giants which are so big so dominant and of course are an important channel to readers. I just wanna know what you're telling me. The law is not even law yet. It's something that's on. Its way to becoming law. And so it's almost a kind of negotiating tactic or lobbying effort. That facebook is said. We're gonna cut you off now right. I mean this fight has been brewing for months. This proposal is expected to become law soon and facebook is just saying it's not going to play with with the rules. Australia is setting which would require platforms to reach deals with publishers to pay for content facebook. Says this law quote fundamentally misunderstands. Its relationship with news outlets view. Is that news that lets choose to post on. Facebook and ultimately publishers benefit more than facebook does and we should say that as this is rolled out. Facebook has acted pretty broadly in terms of blocking things some australian government pages including a fire and rescue agency. Even the weather service had their swipe. Yesterday even facebook's own facebook page was blank in australia. Because it's restoring these pages that have gotten inadvertently caught in the filters are is facebook's response any different than other companies that might be affected by a rule requiring payment in order to to post links. We'll right so the other company could've crosshairs. Here is google which has taken a very different approach. Google had previously also threatened to shut down in australia. It's now reached deals with several big publishers. There most notably it three year global. Deal with newscorp which owns the wall street journal as well as several australian papers. I see. That's notable because newscorp is run by rupert murdoch. he is australian. He's a powerful force in media and politics there. He's been lobbying for years for the tech companies to pay for news content and he has thrown his considerable support behind this law once his companies to be any chance of a like this in the united states. Well i think that's the big concern here and why we're seeing facebook accident act like this. You know it doesn't want to capitulate australia fearing that. Could set a precedent elsewhere and we've heard from lawmakers in canada and europe who say they're open to this approach just last week another. Us tech giant microsoft said it supports version of the australian law and the us. And i think there is concerned that this is something that could we could see here. But you know even if it's just in australia this has big consequences when it comes to. We know that's a problem for facebook. You know it's talked about promoting accurate information. But now people in australia can't post you know. Reputable news stories to counter false claims

Cancel Culture: Slaying the Fox Monster

"We're going to cancel anybody. We disagree with cancel. Culture now has permeated every single part of our society. Sadly i predict it's only gonna get worse. Silence more dangerous voices. You know sean hannity. Maybe you're onto something in advance of an impeachment trial of ex-president on the grounds of inciting insurrection. There is growing sentiment for the cable. Channel that most amplified donald trump's ravings to be held accountable as well in the past week. The new york times washington post mother jones variety and cnn. All entertained musings about fox. One way or another being shunned from polite society. Washington post media columnist. Margaret sullivan declared quote corporations. That advertise on fox. News should walk away and citizens who care about the truth should demand that they do. Such is the post insurrection. Comeuppance zeitgeist after the january sixth riots mainstream social media rid itself of donald trump and thousands of other conspiracy theorists twitter. Dropped more than seventy thousand accounts devoted cunanan single day likewise partner. The extremist heavy twitter clone lost. it's internet host. Republican members of congress suddenly lost sources of campaign funds and donald trump himself lost crucial business relationships. Cancel culture sean. Well yeah more or less and so in this hour. We address two questions first. What if fox news were to be neutralized or at least radically ostracized and secondly in a democratic society in which free speech is foundational. Is that an outcome. We really want. Both questions are premised on the belief that whatever fox has been since one thousand nine hundred ninety six launch a megaphone for wedge issues fearmongering lies conspiracy theories culture. Wars has poisoned with sleep. Mutated it's no longer just an argument with the left. It's explicitly a safe space for insurrectionists and all those who imagine themselves under the heel of tyranny tens of millions of americans have no chance there are about to be crushed by the ascendant left. These people needed defender. You need a defender. Why is no one defending them. That was tucker carlson. One day after the storming of the capital which according to angelo kerosone president and ceo of the left leading advocacy group media matters for america exemplifies the channels dark and treacherous turn. They know that a part of their audience especially tucker's with this idea genocide that white culture is in some way being replaced in decayed and they are trying to appeal to that and they're warning them. They're coming for them. It's a political plain and simple. It's now standard operating procedure in the democratic party. Are you or have you ever been a supporter of donald trump on put a scarlet letter tv on supporters. This is a slippery slope. Are people going to say. We're not going to sell you a car. A republicans. we're not gonna. We're not going to issue you a mortgage conservatives. I mean how far does this go. And you listen as the geniuses explain how the single biggest threat to country isn't chinese. Hegemony or even the coming hyperinflation. Pretty much uncertainty now. Which was one hundred percent caused by elite mismanagement of our economy. But no let's not talk about that. The real threat is a forbidden idea. It's something called that's carlson. Dismissing worries about cunanan a cult dedicated to dismantling government filled with pedophile cannibals. Which is something of a departure from historical conservative values of states rights fiscal responsibility a strong military and self reliance because you know cannibals. The last year in particular is when it certainly seemed as though the cauldron of him and lies. That fox news had been boiling boiled. Over and i think it affected. Everybody's lives i with kobe and all the misinformation and how they influenced the public health response and then in the aftermath of the election. An how they kind of built the framework that really helped undermine the results in the minds a so many of our fellow citizens and after the rage it had helped fuel finally materialized into violence. Did fox hole back humbled in jason over. Its own dark power. No just last week. Here was fox news founder. rupert murdoch. Australia denouncing not insurrection but cancel culture is rigidly enforced. Conformity didn't better. I circled central me. A straightjacket on sensitive -tuni- people have fought too hard in too many places for freedom of speech. To be suppressed for this awful woke orthodoxy murdoch's denunciation of political correctness was widely interpreted as a vow not to cave either to the bleeding hearts or to the even fringe ear conservative channels like newsmax and one american news where many maga- fateful fled on election night. When fox was the first call arizona for joe biden in the aftermath the perennial ratings leader skidded at least temporarily to third place in cable news and for now. Murdoch is steering into the skid. Npr's david folkenflik reports by taking even more news fox news one of their top news. Anchors martha mccallum. She was shifted from seven pm prime evening slot to three pm in the afternoon. And that is a major opinion our and let's be clear conservative opinion. Our among those auditioning is maria bartiromo an anchor. Who has made a lot of unfounded. Unhinged claims here's one from let's just for the sake of argument except that fox news channel has not only crossed a line but defiantly stayed there and thus the chorus of calls for boycotts by its advertisers and of its advertisers in order to starve the beast in the interest of full disclosure in other spaces. I myself have called for that very thing. This happens to be the work. Kerosone media matters has been undertaking. Four years with mixed success. One of the big efforts was a campaign to get either glenn beck to be less destructive or ultimately fired and that's exactly what happens on the other hand or recently advertisers have sled tucker and laura ingram they have lost about half of their paid commercials they used to have more than thirty commercials show now the average between fourteen and sixteen and even though they've lost money obviously they're still on the network and they

How Jessica Lessin got people to pay for The Information

"I wanna start off by talking about something you right you have. Yuba weekly column comes on saturday. It's one of my favorite reads I recommend it to everyone and either this week or the last week you had big tech and media making up your argument was that. They'd been at loggerheads for a while. And now things seem to be have patched patched up but since then rupert murdoch has come out with a screed yelling about social media His new york post ran a screed from josh hawley complaining. That he was being censored by by big tech and social media. andriessen horowitz. One of the premier maybe the most powerful of vc firm in the valley announced that they are going to start their own publication which is quite clearly an end run around publications like yours. And the one. I work for so. Do we still think that big tech and media. I made i mean. I don't think so what i was reading about in that piece was i think a sort of detente between basically the big tech platforms and big publications. Like the new york times like the wall street journal that have for years in. You've been leading the documentation of this wanted more money for their content from the tech platforms. And i think it's notable that in many cases the tech companies are paying out those sums. You know facebook has new news tabs that is significant enough to the new york times that they mentioned it in their earnings report says contributing to revenues so rupert murdoch's company held a big event with face work announcing announcing the payments. That mark zuckerberg was going to hand him. The wall street journal has a multi year error apple news. Deal that who knows if it makes sense for either side but What happened and is that the tech companies have realized. It's better to have sometimes these publications on your side than against you and and these aren't hugely meaningful sums to them so i think that part has changed and it's worth noting because three years ago we would have been here talking about how acrimonious it was. I think you're absolutely right though. There's so that's on the business side of the relationship right the editorial side do you think side. I think thankfully. I think publications are still coming out. Swinging against which i think is very important thing. It's one of the reasons. I started the information seven years ago. You didn't see a lot of that. You saw a lot of hype. He saw a look. How much founders worth. So you know. Reporters and their editors aren't going to back off and they shouldn't in that's very healthy for the business. It's leading to something you mentioned which. I'm really noodling on right now. Though which is more of these senior powerful leaders intact wanting to do an end. Run around the press whether it's chitchatting all day on clubhouse war injuries and horwitz cases launching. Is we broken the information a new media publication where they're hiring you know i. I suspect dozens of staff to the go to source for news. And so yeah. I think we in the media have to be very vigilant about what Leaders particularly intact. Who are very tech. Savvy are doing To get their own message out right now. Want to back up for one second. You said You said tech is coming in. The press is coming out swinging against big tech. And that's good. And i'm sure it will people listen to this. Podcast see con. We've confirmed another another bit of confirmation that the the media is biased against tech with. They're angry about tech they cover tech but they don't like it. I'm generally not very interested in this. I think it's kind of a fake feud but do you have any sympathy for for tech folks. Who do feel like they are. They have been unfairly targetted over x. Lasted for years. Five years. Absolutely not not in sympathy. No because i think the issues and challenges that these companies in their growing power present. Our major i do think the one area i am sympathetic to the grousing tech. Exac is the lack of coverage the sort of narrow scope of coverage right. I think there's a lot happening in the world of technology that is interesting that is important. That is hard to understand and not being written about. And so i would love more of that. I'm sitting down to interview sam altman. Who's running open. A and i'm preparing my questions for him. And it's a range of focusing in on the challenges of ai. But i'm actually inherently curious about all these things. I haven't thought about that. Maybe i could help as well. And so i think we need more of that but but in no way do we need to. To pull back. And i am frankly a little tired of it too and of of the grousing. But but it's it's accelerating in. It's getting louder and technology is giving a bigger mouthpiece to people who feel a real animosity towards the press and i think the environment during the trump administration has empowered that in and we have to be vigilant. So i don't like the peter thiel bankrupt being Gawker a especially Doing it Anonymously for some period of time And there's all sorts of problems with this sort of trump fake news argument but if Vc's or anybody else want to start their own publication to get their own message out and it'll be somewhere in between useful and pravda. What's the problem with. You know. I think if you think of it as like their content marketing arm shore remain. I have the d problem with it. I want hire all the best journalists in the world. I do not want them to go. Work for injuries. And horowitz so Practically speaking i think it's important that talented journalists get opportunities to do real journalism. And so i worry about that a tweet that said it's a call to arms to do this in reference to the andriessen horwitz publication which doesn't exist it. Come out. i think this summer is a called arms to do what we do. Better than ever to show readers. White journalism was must always be independent. And just to play devil's advocate. I don't wanna go work for injuries. And horowitz either you know so. What if they they had. They have twitter forever. They'd had they used to blog a lot Mark injuries and can go on any stage. He wants whenever he wants And talk at length. What's the problem with. Why is this a in any way something we should spend much. It's interesting but why should we spend much time carry about it as journalists welfare. They're hiring just to go back to. I think that is a big deal and they could potentially hire a lot of them. And i think the experience of journalists working in that publications could be very different. Could you write learn about some interesting technologies. Yes but i think we need journalists asking the tough questions and pushing back on power not being a mouthpiece for it and i have learned so much from reading blogs from smart investors about technology. I'm pro that but to say as they did that. They wanna be the go to source. I think misleads the public around. What should be the standard for information for understanding companies and it shouldn't be from the companies themselves

What kind of shakeup are they talking about already. This ofcom is given the go-ahead to two new tv channels including one from rupert murdoch's news. Uk and ofcom is reportedly about to take on the massive task of regulating online harm including social media platforms like youtube an instagram but is a uk regulator really able to police the world wide web. While i'm joined by the person best able to answer those questions day. Melanie does is the newish chief. Executive of com a job. She started in february this year. And she's giving her first major interview to the media. Show elanie welcome to the media. Show thank you very much. Let's start with a quickfire round what you listen to this morning. Gosh i was listening to bbc. Radio news radio four today program. Which is what i often do in the mornings. I'm also these days increasing times radio well but that's how often wake up in the morning. I watched your perm new source. That you i heard two in the mornings day program. So it's a mix of the traditional newspapers. We got quite a lot in our household during the day. I i look at sky news up quite a lot. also bbc news and i'm a fan of bbc. Radio and things like newscast is one of my favorites as well. What was the best thing you've seen on. Tv recently This time of year for me and my family is definitely strictly is just that time of year. Isn't it so. We're addicted to that. Every saturday night and sunday night for the results. Show georgia tech news most evenings. Some evenings are sometimes. Watch the bbc news. Sometimes i tv but to be honest increasingly like a lot of people. I'm i'm watching things on ketchup or doing things on the radio. Lord by the world catch up shortly in terms of online video. Subscriptions huge choices as disney plus amazon. Prime video netflix. Do you have. We've got two three disney but we've got net flicks and prime and some of the others so so we watch a real bletchley of traditional british tv alongside some of the new streaming services and we'll come onto kind of that balance and what it should look like in the future life for those who don't know huge amount about your background your career. You very distinguished career seven. Have you have actually worked in the arts or media or on a film set. Tv newsroom any of that stuff. No i never have myself. But of course what what i what i do bring is inadequate. Lot of understanding. You're kind of public policy. And how you make decisions in that context and i am also an avid viewer and listener. Tv and radio. Why would come appoint someone who's a massive public policy but it hasn't got a background in media and communications. I mean sharon. What was she went to the treasury for many is what does that say about the thinking behind that your appointment what. I'm not so much sure about my own appointment but the important thing in off comments that we have got a lot of experience from all sorts of different walks of life. We've got people who are radio engineers. He knew everything about managing spectrum. Which is one of the jobs we do. We've also got a lot of people with a background in the broadcasting industry. So might my job is to leave the organization and pull that together now. This is the show. We talk a lot about off. Komo news programming media regulator. This may not realize quite how broad you'll remain is. Could you just give us a quick run through of the cost of various that. Come under your purview. The communications regulator. So we look at things like how we get broadband improved across the country and mobile phone services making sure that the consumers valley served. But we also gonna come onto you today. We oversee the broadcasting costing sector and some of the rules and regulations that were that just says of come does a content regulator. Can you talk us through this week's ruling you made over i tv. What did you find what happens next. We found that. I had broken our rules. This is about how they were running on their competitions and some viewers who who wrote in and we're in that competition didn't have their votes counted. So what was great with a really good engagement with tv. The moment they spotted this they told us about it and they've they've really taken steps to address it so we won't be taking any further action but they did break the rules the rules. Should they be punished including facing fines. Well in this case it was human error it was just about putting the data on a spreadsheet incorrectly. And also i. Tv did engage with us really well. I'm really constructively right from the beginning. So we take that kind of thing into account and that's why we'll be taking further action of comes authority outfit. Come from the fact that it can hurt people financially. There's a bit of social stigma opprobrium attached to the fact that you might be found against by off calm but is your power ultimately that you can hurt people in their pocket. Well i mean. I think when you a regulator you've got a range of things that you're you're able to do one of them. Yes is to is to sanction people and find things but ideally is a last resort. An awful of ofcom does and we've been. We've done this in the report. We publish this week is actually bring research and evidence bear on on important questions and to make sure this transparency about what's going on let's focus a little bit on euro as a content regulator and look at some of the other big media stories around this week so all of a doubt in the culture sector. You must speak to you. On a regular basis. as written to netflix's asking them to make clear their drama series. The crown is fictionalized. Now if the crown with broadcast on bbc one and therefore fell under of comes burkas code which you guys make. The bbc put a disclaimer on it. Well i think it's a really interesting question. I mean you know as as you hinting out. There are different rules for different kinds of streams that we can now crtv so if you watching a program on bbc warn itv's for pretty much on sky virgin then you'll again you're watching programs are regulated by off. Commander are broadcasting code. If you're watching netflix six then it's a much narrower so regulations. In fact the regulator there is in holland because net flicks headquartered there for the whole of europe and actually you're watching on on youtube. Then there's no regulation at all so it is quite confusing sometimes for the viewer. Things

"Rupert murdoch. The mogul who owns Fox News. The Wall Street Journal and other newspapers and networks around the world is arguably the most powerful man in media today, but in nineteen sixty nine he was a hungry. Thirty eight year old looking to break into London's newspaper establishment as Jeff London reports a new play called Inc. Chronicles those years at the beginning of ink Rupert Murdoch meets with an ambitious editor named Larry lamb and asks him. What makes a good story lamb answers with journalism five basics who what when where why but land played by Johnny Leanne Miller wants to ditch. Why why something happened the stories over? Instead don't answer. Why a story can roll enrolling run forever. And the other reason actually, honestly, I think is that there is no why most times why suggest a plan a point to things when they happen. And there's not there's just not sometimes just happens only thing with us. He's a why it's what's next. What's next is the story of failing British newspaper, the sun and its rebirth as a tabloid under Murdoch and lamb the play was written by James Graham. I wanted to do an origin story to go back to the birth of what? Now feels like the predominant kind of tone to news media, especially when you think of folks news and social media and the internet's out, it's very aggressive. It's populist, and sometimes it feels I guess quite dangerous Murdoch already owned newspapers in Australia New Zealand and wanted to crack the British market, but he found he wasn't welcomed says birdie Carville who plays the future mogul, ironically, really given his beginnings from wealthy. And established straightened family to come into the British society on beheld as an outside doing. So it's almost excluded from establishments. I think that the key in terms of his appetite to overturn and to disrupt when I hit codes and traditions. I hated the rules as written by those who benefit from them to stop others from treading on the tough. He enlists editor land assembles the staff of other establishment rejects to take on the most popular paper in Britain playwright, James Graham, says the Daily Mirror was filled with highbrow conversations about art and politics, the sun decide to be fun. It's cheeky mischievous it sometimes insulting everything is in all caps have screened from the paper..

"Powerful by allying itself with a huge company like AT and T, you know, and so he wanted to see it blocked as well. I would assume, but I'm I've got to say Murdoch's people declined to speak on the record to us about it. Rupert Murdoch is not a young man he's in his late eighties. It's known that his children are not wild about certain aspects. Certainly a Fox News except for the aspect that it makes billions of dollars in profit. What do you expect will happen to Fox News when Rupert Murdoch has gone? Well, it's a great question. I don't have the answer. I think it's it's going to hang on Lachlan Murdoch. Probably he's the son the oldest son of of Rupert who is going to be the top person overseeing Fox News with his father. And he shares his dad's politics, I think he's quite conservative. But I have heard that people at FOX seemed to think that maybe he'll make it slightly more center, right James Murdoch, who's much more of a political independent is not going to be involved. He sort of opted out of all of this. And the thing is it makes so much money. Like this for them. I'm just not sure they're going to want to do anything that hurts the golden goose Howard, the Trump presidency and the future. Fox News linked to each other. How how do you expect to see the campaign covered? Well, I mean one thing that is a danger for Trump is that the FOX base viewership needs to be in. Enraged in order to keep the business model working, but it's not necessarily great for Trump to only reach those people e can get cornered by his own allies. And it's happened before it happened on the budget deals where he wound up in an effort to please FOX he wound up doing things that really hurt his own popularity and that could happen again in the campaign. He may find it hard to broaden the base the way he needs to to get reelected, if he's only narrowcasting his message.
