Brought to you by the loan experts I trust Andrew and Todd at Sierra Pacific Mortgage at andrewandtodd .com. Joining us now is Sean Davis CEO and co -founder of The Federalist. Sean I'm tired of losing. I'm sick of losing. I'm a big football fan. It's my weakness. I know I get a lot of hate mail for it. Oh it's woke. I don't care and one of the things about football is if you lose you get fired. At the RNC though if you lose you remain. Explain this to me Sean. I don't know it seems like that's almost a fact of politics anymore. Is it the watching these debates for example. Why on earth are people who hate us and hate people who read us and follow us and hate what we believe. Why are we letting them run these debates and attack our people. It would almost be like giving the Yankees front office the ability to interview anyone who's going to go and play for the Red Sox or like letting the Redskins and I still call them the Redskins and I always will. Letting the Redskins coach like pick who's going to play for the Cowboys. It's so dumb and yet we seem to do it debate after debate and year after year and I simply don't understand it at all. Yeah and so I want to play a piece of tape here. So Ronna McRomney was asked about her involvement in Virginia and it's always deflection. It's blaming other side and Larry O 'Connor who's a total superstar. I really like Larry. He's been in the movement for quite some time. He's so calmly and beautifully asked this question was like hey why wasn't the RNC more involved. His reaction afterwards is just epic. So let's play this piece of tape here. It's always somebody else's fault. It's never the national party's fault. Play cut 155. You don't let people lie about you and let it not let it go unanswered. Let it go unanswered and our candidates have got to do this. You can walk and chew gum at the same time. You can go and say this is where I stand. The Democrats are lying and now let's talk about crime, schools, border, fentanyl, and national security. I just want to clarify one quick thing though. The RNC had no involvement in these elections in Virginia per Governor Youngkin's request. We not well we were told in the summer they didn't need us that they had all the money and they were good. So now we've learned that the Virginia GOP chair Rich Anderson says that he asked the RNC to match the Democrats with one million dollars of a late cash infusion into the state. The RNC the only excuse they have is they can't raise money but that was supposed to be an thing. honest She said well we have no money but you're not raising any money because donors don't trust you the grassroots don't trust you. Sean help me understand. Yeah you've got two jobs as a as a party leader. You raise money and you set up state -by -state infrastructure so that the party can succeed which means by the way getting out to vote and setting up get out to vote infrastructure. So your your job is to supposed to raise a truckload of money and you're supposed to set up everything so that we can match the other side match the Democrats and how they get out the vote how they do ballot chase and all that. I've seen like I don't pay attention all that much to the fundraising so I won't I won't comment on that but it's been almost four years since a completely absurd election in 2020 when the Democrats just ran circles around us in in their absentee ballot chase their mail -in chase. I haven't seen a whole lot of evidence and that in states where we really need to win like Arizona and Georgia that either the state party or the national party is doing much of anything to make sure the Dems don't run in 2024 the exact same playbook they ran against us in 2020. So I'm I'm honestly kind of befuddled I feel like I'm watching office space watching the Bob's interview the employees and thinking what would you say you do here because I can't figure it out. So moving forward here Sean let's emphasize on the NBC news thing so we're after a very disappointing night and then Lester Holt and Welker are cross -examining our candidates just I want just the most objective way you could look at it what candidate do you think separated themselves from the other and who do you think missed an opportunity at that debate? Oh I thought Hveke was awesome I love how he came right out of the gate and trashed the moderators and basically said you're a whole bunch of Russian collusion hoaxers like who do you think you are that's how you handle these moderators and and I think Newt Gingrich was the one who who provided a perfect model for this he did it in during the 2012 primary where every time he got a question in one of these debates from a total left -wing hack masquerading as a journalist he just took him to town so you know your premise is garbage you're full of crap I think you're liars and here's what I'm going to talk about instead of the uh was fantastic um it's hard for me to say who the loser was in these because they kind of feel like loser debates to me and in the first place it's like watching the kids table so um I think the whole debate thing in it in and of itself we need to have a discussion about um but but I thought Hveke and the way he handled the moderators was great and I wish every single Republican from now until forever would treat these hack propagandists the exact same way. So I totally agree and I'll just say this you know Ron DeSantis received the first question and he gave his kind of typical and by the way he's the best governor in America I want everyone to be very clear I get hate mail when I say that Ron DeSantis remains the best governor in America he's not a good presidential candidate he's running a poor campaign it's the brutal honest truth and it's hard to watch he gives this fine answer you know I'm Ron DeSantis and people can't pay for gas and bah bah bye feel your pain yeah whatever Ron how awesome you were just you it was like a t -ball you could have went right after NBC news you could have just used them as the villain and the vague kind of picked up you know the trillion dollar bill that was laying right there and he called for Rana's resignation on top of it it was Rana's resignation the RNC is a bunch of losers we have a culture of losing and NBC news you guys are the complete worst and he got the headlines honestly he got the headlines across the head you know across the board and people really appreciate it because they want a fighter so let me ask you uh kind of shifting gears here Sean Joe Manchin not running for the senate the significance of this and how should we think about a potential no labels candidacy that is bubbling up with Millard Willard Mitt Romney and Mr. Manchin yeah so I got a kick out of Manchin's press release that he put out and said you know I've accomplished what I want to do in my career and I'm very proud of what I've done and and I have hopes of doing other things buddy you're retiring and not running again because you were going to get your butt kicked because you were Joe Biden's little laugh dog when you were supposed to be representing uh West Virginia voters so I think we need to be honest about why he's not going to be a senator again and it's because no one in his own state likes him the people who know him best don't want him as their senator anymore and and that's why he's not going to be running again so you bring up Mitt Romney uh man they are they are birds of a feather in that thing Mitt Romney's only the only consistent thing he has done his entire career in politics is run he gets in once and then he does such a poor job that everyone in the state hates him so he can't run again so he just finds like a new state to run you know he was a one -term governor in Massachusetts he got smoked in the presidential so he decided to move to Utah and run for senate there and no one likes him there anymore because he's a jerk uh and so what does he have left to do the only thing that Joe Manchin has left to do which is avoid any actual real job and just stay in politics and find a bunch of left -leaning voters who pretend they're independent but you can bilk and make a living off of so that's what's happening with Joe Manchin and I can't take this no label stuff seriously at all it's just a grift for a bunch of idiots who are hated by the left and hated by the right don't want to get a real job and have no home to go to go back to by the way Federalist you guys do great work it's really amazing just 30 seconds rip on the Federalist how are

for you and we have a video to accompany it in a second will John Fetterman cost Joe Biden the election divisions among democrats over Israeli -Palestinian conflict have highlighted the fault with lines in the party John Fetterman's actions are unlikely to sway the presidential election Pennsylvania however it does show that there are fault lines in the democrat party first of all I'm not a fan of John Fetterman but the guy is a master class troll every republican could take a class in how to troll like John Fetterman is basically if reddit became a U .S. senator I don't know if you saw this video but it's just you know you have this guy that looks like cyclops walking you know in a hoodie with the Israeli flag walking did you see this video on the funniest thing I've ever seen and all these people are getting arrested honestly I respect that level of game and this his base he's trolling so Sean you know let's broaden this a little bit outside of just Fetterman doing the trolling is this which is um the fault lines the democrat party over Israel the Palestine issue I don't want to overplay this I think this is the most divided I've seen the democrats in recent memory am I right on saying that Sean I think you are and I think it explains why the institutional left why Joe Biden and the party leadership uh walk on eggshells on this issue which really shouldn't be a difficult issue um you know people shouldn't be rolling into Israel and murdering babies and raping people and filming it and bragging about it that's bad I feel like anyone who has a soul understands that's bad but unfortunately there's a significant segment of the left the far left um it hates Israel hates Jews and when they see party leadership uh like Joe Biden and anyone else uh say common sense things uh about Israel they lose their minds and that that explains everything about why the democrats are handling this as poorly as they are is it Joe Biden is terrified that he's going to lose the presidential election because he's going to lose Michigan because he's going to lose Dearborn Michigan that's that big thing explained everything it's everything that's going on it has nothing to do with principle they're just scared about what their loony left is going to do to them if they don't kowtow to Hamas yeah and it's just but also beyond that Sean there are radicalized white liberals that care about the Gaza issue as well it's not just the Muslim vote right this could impact on their college campus enthusiasm and you play that in with some Jill Stein Cornell West I mean there are serious fault lines in this forced democrat coalition oh absolutely the the hardcore uh white left uh is is every bit as anti -semitic as the uh the bread by the way in in left wing run universities who view the entire world through this oppressor oppressed colonialist victim uh perspective and so yeah your your most rabid anti -semites often on college campuses are these hardcore left -wing white radicals it's totally bizarre but if you watch the media you watch the media the only anti -semites on earth are on the right which is absurd if you have eyes and ears and a brain because it's clearly concentrated on the left final question Sean your just gut reaction Tucker Carlson vice president for Donald Trump I love it I love Tucker uh I think it'd be great it'd be great for America um he's one of the only people who who says all the things that we all think but aren't allowed to say he actually comes out and says it and uh I love him I think it'd be awesome I think we would win especially in a multi -candidate race we're gonna keep on building it out Sean thanks so much appreciate it thank you sir nobody Tucker is better in front of the camera than Tucker you're not gonna outwit him could you just imagine Tucker in a debate Tucker versus Cami Kamala Harris versus Tucker Tucker is ridiculously alert he's been harassed constantly and in an internet age as Joe Rogan famously said Tucker Carlson was built for the internet no personal scandals his laugh alone we know this at Turning Point USA you can you could fill up a room if you just announced Tucker so let's pretend Trump has to go to Fulton County and Jack Smith and he's tied up in all this court stuff wouldn't it make sense to have a vice president who could draw big crowds and draw media attention especially in a multi -candidate race everybody you want to win younger voters especially younger men Tucker Carlson you would win early 30 -somethings you would win the Rogan bros you would win the Andrew Tate people and honestly I think you'd win a lot of suburban women a lot of moms like Tucker they really do Tucker's smart he's well before I'll use it again the more he's attacked the stronger he gets they've tried to take Tucker out every possible way the government spied on him illegally Tucker doesn't care he's in a political moment that we're in doesn't that make sense I want to tell you about the Herzog Foundation we are partnering with them on some exciting stuff for years I've been talking about our nation's public schools and how they've been captured by progressive ideologues

.com that's HerzogFoundation .com Joining us now is the legend Benny Johnson Benny is best known by hosting a legend you are a legend no no no I don't just I just don't throw praise unless it's earned okay I got to tell the whole story here and we'll get through it and Benny of course hosts the Benny show he's amazing we've done some really fun stuff at Turning Point USA and continue to and so but he's best he will be best when known the history books are written for being a debate coach so here I am about to take the stage at Freedom Night our Turning Point USA event and my phone is lighting up Vivek goes after the RNC Vivek goes I say what is going on because here I kind of put in the back of my mind I was like whatever you know you and Vivek were like doing somersaults off of jet skis or something you're like we're debate prepping running through the woods or I was like all right okay whatever and then as soon as I saw Vivek go after NBC News I said Benny it's Benny tell us the story Benny okay so what do I do professionally well like this has been something that I've had a tough time a question I've had a tough time answering my entire life I do pattern recognition and energy energy right like where is the base what is our energy what are the what are the patterns of the things that we hate the very most well we we hate an RNC that doesn't listen to us we hate a Republican party that won't build the wall that won't deliver for the base that delivers election wins for the RNC it is not the RNC that wins elections it is us who gets out and votes but we also hate the corporate press and so why don't we bundle both those two things into criticism of an RNC that is siding with NBC News to host a debate and ask the questions why are these debate hosts allowed to one rig another debate against Republicans why is the RNC celebrating NBC News as a debate partner when they went with Hunter Biden's laptop disinformation Russia disinformation against President Trump kneecap President Trump's why would we allow that like how like how cucked are we and how embarrassing is it for all of us that that we have to say this is our Republican party and why doesn't Rana just resign do us all a favor and simply resign and so I all I did all I did was bring those concerns to the person who I was making a documentary with that day the vague and um you know compliments to the vague he sort of so let's absorb them and and let's show the clip here so what with it because because it really was the shot heard around the world it was one of the most viral debate moments in the history of debates because Vivek said what we were all thinking Rana has a 99 disapproval rating every base every every base member all the donors I talked to they want her gone it is it transcends economic lines state lines nobody likes her unless they're on the payroll right and yet Vivek is the only one that and then NBC News on top of it this is behind the cut one fifty four because these snooty the snooty like uh persnippity moderators to be compared to Greg Gutfeld and then it'll throw off it'll throw them off their game so bad because you'll be like you you you people are clowns to us right like our base doesn't like you and it's nothing personal it's just you've earned it right you've lied to them that's right yeah yes so why are we yep be such a broken system now I want to brag on the vague because we're going to play some more here how many times Benny how many times have you and I texted or you know said good ideas to congressmen and senators they said yeah yeah they don't listen to us credit to Vivek for also being open -minded right that's a big deal that's exactly right and also Vivek who's certainly not short of podcast bookings said why isn't Elon Musk and Joe Rogan and Tucker Carlson hosting debate why isn't Charlie Kirk hosting a debate Charlie why aren't you have you been asked by the RNC to host a debate no I have been attacked by the RNC in the last couple weeks definitely not asked to host the debate but I I'm I'm thankful to even be included in that list that's that's very sweet but no what but what would like why not I mean that's in the little that's in the documentary that we put up we put up a 30 -minute documentary about that debate preparation which really was just us having a conversation right like energy absorption like like where's the base right now what do they want to hear because as much as we want to talk about the number of naval ships and Hugh Hewitt know how many ships do we got like people are really concerned about other issues and specifically inside of the party like you shouldn't get rewarded for lying to us and that's what the Republican party just said they rewarded Kristen Welker and NBC News who lied to us for three years and kneecapped President Trump who we put in office in spite of them trying to rig the 2016 election we put President Trump in office and they destroyed arguably his first term based on a lie and they have never apologized they have never said they were wrong they they then get rewarded by our own RNC and it allows me to ask the question again and again how cucked are we if we can't say you get no debates until you apologize to our base for lying to us about the Russian collusion hoax then we really don't have a party and so it was refreshing to see somebody actually say that from the stage and then to call for Rana to resign which by the way you want to talk about moving the Overton window because I you know you know me Benny I I pick fights all the time and I've been kind of like beating the drum you know why is Rana Mcromany still in there you know in our little corner here and you know we're having fun and next thing you know boom Vivek goes on stage it's like yeah why are you in charge exactly and who are you and it was I mean now it's mainstream completely mainstream here's cut 166 Benny did a documentary with Vivek before the debate here is the conversation behind the scenes of Vivek deciding he will call for Rana to resign play cut 166.
Fresh update on "nbc news" discussed on WTOP 24 Hour News
"Visit KBR .com slash careers. Washington's top news. WTOP. Facts matter. 8 It's .14 and I'm Dimitri Sotis. Thanks a lot for being with us. New tonight on the in Crisis the Middle East. President Biden says he's spoken with the parents of the Israeli -American dual citizen released tonight from Hamas in Gaza and shall soon be reunited with her three children. The mom is one of 16 hostages set free tonight. It's important to remember President Biden and his administration have played a central role in this deal to get some of the hostages released from Gaza. He believes his unconditional public support for Israel has been key. was This a policy, though, that was criticized by Barack Obama's team all the way back when Joe Biden was vice president. Joining us live to talk about this and some other aspects of this story, Courtney Cubby, who is NBC News Spotted covering national security and the Pentagon. Courtney, it really is astonishing to those of us that watch closely how much of that bad blood kind of comes to the surface between the Biden and Obama teams now and again. Can we objectively say that this policy currently of quite literally hugging Benjamin Netanyahu, keeping him close and then offering suggestions has worked pretty well for Joe Biden? Well, President Biden certainly that thinks it has worked for him. And he's even told aides, according to a number of officials who we've spoken with, that he believes he was right all along with this idea of sort of bear -hugging Israel, that is keeping showing both publicly support for them with the idea of that maintains the ability U .S. to have influence, to have access with the Israelis. And frankly, what you were just talking about with the hostage negotiations with the ability for the U .S. to talk to Israel about ground operations, things like when they decided to first move in on the ground in Gaza, President Biden, according to the officials we spoke with, believes that the fact that the U .S. has kept Israel so close since October 7th is one of the reasons they've that been able to influence some of the decisions on the ground by the Israelis. What mistake does President Biden say President that Obama made nearly 10 years ago? So this was back in 2014 when Israel mounted a military assault on Gaza. President Obama at the time, of course Vice President Biden at the time, the U for at times somewhat critical of the Israelis strikes and attacks into and the civilian casualties. So something that we've been hearing a lot about for the last several weeks publicly all around the world is this idea that the Israelis were not being careful enough with civilian casualties in Gaza. But President Biden since then, and in fact at the time President Obama even was, according to the officials we spoke with, sort of made fun of Vice President Biden at the time for his views and believed that he was right. Well now President Biden is saying of course he believes that he was right all along. All that being said there are signs that President Biden is in trouble in some states for example now, Michigan, with so many Muslim voters living there, and then being really upset with his policy toward the Palestinians and the thousands of deaths that have resulted. And despite the fact that the administration really is, and the world frankly is thrilled with the fact that hostages are getting out, this is obviously seen as a win, there is sort of what happens next here. Dimitri, people are already starting to talk about the next phase of the ground offensive in Gaza. What will that look like? Could the Israelis move south, where of course they've told many Palestinians to go for safe haven, and there's a lot of concern, according to US officials, that in fact we may see even civilian more casualties, and that more people around the world and in the United States could turn against as Israel we see more Palestinians injured and killed in some of these bombing attacks. appreciate Certainly the update. Thank you so much. Thanks Dimitri. Courtney Cubby live on WTOP. NBC News correspondent, covering national security and the Pentagon. Part of her reporting along with Carol Lee is that President President Biden is now issuing a policy that at one time he was made fun of as Vice President for pursuing and that was to get close to Israel, really close to Israel, where they could in a friendly way make suggestions about any such war. We'll keep watching of course. Top stories on WTOP. The House inching closer vote to a to kick out New York Republican George Santos from the House. It's expected to happen Friday.

A highlight from What Separates "Gaza" from Hamas? with Alan Dershowitz and Harmeet Dhillon

Salem News Channel has the greatest collection of conservative minds all in one place. People you know and trust, like Dennis Prager, Eric Metaxas, Charlie Kirk, and more. Unfiltered, unapologetic truth. Find what you're searching for at snc .tv and on Local Now Channel 525. Hey everybody, today on The Charlie Kirk Show, Harmeet Dillon joins the program as we talk about the election results and what can be done to fix and change the RNC.

Start a high school or college chapter today at tpusa .com. Buckle up everybody, here we go. Charlie what you've done is incredible here. Maybe Charlie Kirk is on the college campus. I want you to know we are lucky to have Charlie Kirk. Charlie Kirk's running the White House folks. I want to thank Charlie, he's an incredible guy. His spirit, his love of this country, he's done an amazing job building one of the most powerful youth organizations ever created, Turning Point USA. We will not embrace the ideas that have destroyed countries, destroyed lives, and we are going to fight for freedom on campuses across the country. That's why we are here. Brought to you by the loan experts I trust, Andrew and Todd at Sierra Pacific Mortgage at andrewandtodd .com. Do we want to win? That's such an obvious question. The great rush Limbaugh taught us that establishment Republicans deep down don't want to win. They want to be controlled opposition, have the media to cover fire for them, be invited to cocktail parties, go on codels, do debates with NBC News. Winning requires responsibility and deep down Republicans would rather be attachés, they would rather be puppets and controlled by the Democrats. This is why Donald Trump was such a threat to them. When Donald Trump actually won it was shock and awe throughout of Washington D .C. Wait, we actually won something? Donald Trump's insistence on winning is not something the Republican establishment wants. They would rather lose all throughout. The RNC leadership does not want to win. They have a track record of losing. Do I get any sort of, did you guys see Ronna or any of those cabal members get upset today? No, they're too busy doing a debate with NBC News because they hate you. Joining us now is Harmeet Dillon. Harmeet, welcome to the program. Harmeet, you sent out a tweet of you just with your hands up. What do you think? Yeah, I mean, I'm, look, I'm trying to be diplomatic here, I'm a member of the RNC, but in reality what I and all the other 156, 168 members of the RNC expect is that we are going to be going strong and doing the blocking and tackling for our candidates and creating the best situation for our candidates to win. And what happened yesterday was not that. Now, the RNC is not the only body whose job it is to elect a publicist. In fact, our main focus is supposed to be electing a president. I'll get to that in a minute. But we ought to be providing guidance and sort of a playbook for state parties to be able to get it right. For a while, to be frank, state parties have also not necessarily done their jobs in raising the money necessarily, but you know, you look at Kentucky, the Republican Governors Association's job is to raise the money and spend it so that our candidate does not outspend three or four to one. We need help with messaging. We need to update our playbook to make sure that we're gathering the ballots and getting those local density ballots in early, like the Democrats are doing, and that's not a volunteer activity anymore. Democrats are spending billions of dollars doing that over the last few election cycles, and we're just not even doing a drop in the bucket compared to that. So, you know, RNC's competence is necessary but not sufficient to win these elections. And I hope yesterday was a wake up call to all Republicans that we have less than one year to really get our act together and immediately engage and get this right. Otherwise, we are going to be looking at years of war and misery like we're suffering right now. So, Harmeet, just there's a debate tonight. It's kind of perplexing to do a debate with NBC News. Are other members of the RNC equally as confused? People are pretty puzzled by some of these choices to be frank, but most of us have no input in it. I used to be on the executive committee of the RNC. I'm not right now. We have a debate committee. I have a couple of friends on the debate committee and, you know, frankly even some of them are surprised by some of these choices, not just the venues that we're doing them for the platforms but also the specific moderators have been selected. It seems almost pointless or like fiddling while Rome is burning to be engaging with the far left here and letting them dictate the terms of our candidate selection. I'm not paying attention to that, to be honest with you. I'm really worried about what's happening in our country, what happened yesterday and figuring out how we can work around our national effort and make sure this gets done in the states or we're doing them. So, I'm going to ask a hypothetical that isn't so hypothetical. Hypothetical for you, not hypothetical for me. Is there a way to recall or remove an RNC chair this far into the game? You know, in the past, hypothetically, where there have been chairs who have failed completely, the executive committee of the Republican National Committee can certainly step in and, let's say, tighten the purse strings, set some boundaries, and make it very difficult. But, you know, Ronna got a mandate in January. She won pretty decisively. People ask me, are you going to confess that? No, I'm not going to confess. She definitely won the election with a significant percentage of the votes and there were major political operatives in our country on the Republican side whipping votes for her and there are many, many political consultants who really run the party who are very invested in the way it is. So, I don't really see that happening. So, you know, while it's convenient to pick a scapegoat we RNC for what happened yesterday, we got to get it together and not just complain on Twitter. We actually have to just understand this is the situation that we have and work around it. There are state parties. It is the job of state parties to get money and get it together and get a game play. Election laws vary by state. Some states have voter ID. Some states have 45 days of early voting. Whatever the situation is in your state, if you can't change it by election day, figure it out and learn how to master it. We've done that in California, for example. You know, we hate the system, but we've learned to figure out where we can win elections, ballot harvest, ballot cure, and get it done. And we do win those targeted elections. Yeah, Harmeet, I have a serious concern that we don't have the infrastructure necessary to win coming into next November. We are running out of time. You sent a tweet, you sent a tweet out some of this and you said this, which is the infrastructure is just not there. You know, we're not seeing the sort of consolidation of resources. And Harmeet, I know you have to be diplomatic because you're colleagues, all these people. But I'm going to say something I'm sure you're hearing. This is not just a grassroots concern. High level donors, the richest people, are actually saying very similar things as the grassroots as far as why do why are we not placing these investments? This is an unprecedented chapter where the rank and file precinct committeeman, the plumber, the electrician, the welder, the teacher, the mom is saying the same thing as the person worth a couple hundred million dollars. Are you hearing that too, Harmeet? I am hearing it. I spoke to some donor representatives just earlier this week of billionaire donors, reliable conservative donors. Quite a few of those folks supported change with the RNC. They didn't see it. And they're sitting on their hands right now. And that's unfortunate because these investments can't happen in October next year. They can't happen and they can't there can't be like, OK, let's call up some volunteer lawyers in September and hopefully they'll put down their laptops and go into the field and stuff. That's not how the Democrats do it. And since 2004, Democrat billionaires and big donors have been systematically and in a disciplined way, investing in legal warfare, investing in ballot harvesting, investing in smart tactical development of ballot measures and other bait, if you will, to get their voters to the polls, the high propensity voters. They have the money to pay the mules, gather these ballots and get them in. We are 20 years behind now. And, you know, I feel like watching a debate tonight is like fiddling while home is burning. It is not relevant to winning the election next year. Now, it has to be done. We can't skip this process. But, you know, I wonder why we're doing it with unfriendly moderators and platforms. It seems like a lost opportunity. Bottom line, if we have been investing in lawfare and in the army of ballot gatherers that we need, like, by the way, Turn Point Action is doing. Tyler's been out there doing that work. It's inspiring and it's important. There need to be a hundred Tyler's and a hundred Turn Point Actions out there doing this work in different states. There's, you know, some party patriots and other groups are doing it, but we just aren't doing enough of it. We have to have more. And yesterday needs to be a five alarm fire wake up call. Do not expect largesse from D .C. to save our butts. OK. Organize at the state and local level and find the local lawyers. And I can help with that. Find the people necessary and prepare the ground. Because if we don't, I mean, literally as we speak, my partners are flying around the country defending the right of President Trump to be on the ballot. This is extraordinary that the banana republics, that the regime tries to prevent the most popular opposition candidate from being free or from being on the ballot. That's what's happening in America right now. So, you know, that's that's what's at stake. And if you get, you know, let's not just use Twitter as a sport and get on there. Oh, you know, it's X person's fault. It's Y person's fault. That doesn't move the needle. What moves the needle is putting on your big girl in boy pants, getting out there, helping raise the money and helping be the person who organizes the precincts, finds out which neighbors aren't voting and why and persuade them. And if they're not even going to do that, then find a way to persuade them to turn their ballot over and you get it in for them. That's what it's going to take. Harmeet Dillon, wish you were RNC chair. We'd be in a much better spot. Thank you so much. See you soon. My pleasure. Thanks for having me.
Fresh update on "nbc news" discussed on The Charlie Kirk Show
"In 2018 and 19. The political earthquake that it created, people say you can't say that. Are you trying to say Democrats are slave owners and Candace? Yeah, they are. Remember when Trump said, what do you have to lose famously? And he delivered more for the black community and then gets called a racist on top of it. The Democrat base, as it is currently constituted, is cracking on multiple different fronts. This Israel Hamas thing. The Arab Muslims are saying we're going somewhere else. The black community is saying we're not really on board. Waning enthusiasm from black voters presents inflection point for Biden campaign. NBC News. Politico dot com. Black voters are drifting away from Democrats. Will that hurt Biden in South Carolina? It seems like people are looking elsewhere. I'm telling you, everybody, there is something changing in real time. The Democrats have abused. And culturally tortured the black community for 50 years. Will 2024 be the year they finally pay a price for how terribly they've treated black America? Hey, everybody, I want to introduce you to Artillery Tea Company. Artillery Tea is the premium tea for freedom loving patriots. I love tea. I drink green tea almost all day. I can tell you, by the way, the health benefits of tea are amazing, especially green tea helps you lose weight. It's actually better for you than caffeine. I've been trying not to drink too much coffee. It's not going great, but tea is a great substitute. Their tea is whole leaf for a more full bodied flavor. Plus, you can brew each bag twice, which gives you about 30 cups per 10. It's a great deal. They got all the flavors you want. Earl Grey, peach, apricot, green tea, chamomile and many others. I'm a big tea guy and you should be too. Here's the best part. Portions of all sales is donated to veteran and first responders. Visit Artillery Tea Co dot com. That is Artillery Tea Co dot com and support these guys. Not only do they make the best teas on the market, but you're also supporting veterans and first responders through every purchase. So check it out now. Artillery Tea Co dot com. Check it out right now. The Democrat Party has relied on two aspects of the black community, the first of which is mere political domination of 90 to 95 percent, but also getting them to vote in higher numbers, both of which are critical. So I have no idea if this fracturing happening in the black community is going to result in voting for Donald Trump. They might vote for Cornel West. They might vote for Kennedy. They might not vote at all. But the rising cynicism, cynicism that Democrats have blacks have towards the Democrat Party is long overdue. And there is now this bombshell viral clip. The guy by the name of Mark Fisher, BLM co-founder in the state of Rhode Island, who goes on to now endorse Donald Trump. Now, when I first saw this clip, I was a little skeptical. It turns out that it was legit. Mark Fisher, BLM co-founder. Endorses Donald Trump, Playcut 65, you BLM leader, and you're now endorsing Donald Trump saying he's the best candidate we have. Why do you think he is the best candidate that we have? Because everybody else sucks. So is he just the best of a bad group? I mean, is he still is he not that great either, but he's just like better than the rest? Well, you know, I like Trump, you know, personally, and I think right now who we have sitting in the Oval Office is just a deep disappointment. You know, I deeply have disdain for him and I really dislike the vice president as well. Co-founder of BLM in Rhode Island says, I like Trump continues. Playcut 66. Do you feel alone in this viewpoint in the world that you're in being in the BLM movement? No, I feel like the tide is starting to turn. I feel like people are starting to pivot off of that Democratic plantation for so long. We've been slaves to that party. You know, actually, we've been mental slaves, afraid to get off of that plantation because you know, we've been used and abused for so long at that party. They don't value our vote. Their policies are basically racist policies. And I believe it's a racist party that strikes at the heart of the black family and the nuclear family in general. And I believe Donald Trump is the opposite. He's going to tell you how it is. He's going to give it to you straight. He's not going to, you know, be a hypocrite and, you know, stab you in the back like the Democratic Party loves to do. So I don't want to unrealistically get people's hopes up. Is this going to be a mega wave in the black community? Probably not. Will this mean that Trump will do five to seven points better? Probably. Potentially, I should say. Or even more important, they're in Georgia, where black Americans are anywhere between 30 to 35 percent of the voting base. One in five black men could be like, I'm going to vote for a third party. One in six black women could be like, I'm going to vote for Kennedy. I'm going to vote for Cornel West. The grip that the Democrats have had post Obama in black America is collapsing. Black America has seen. Their livelihood deteriorate under Democrat policies, Democrat leaders. It is one of the most frustrating things to witness from the outside. A group of Americans that continually vote for the same people that are keeping them poor. That are keeping them in that standard of living. Play the next cut here. Play cut 67. Trump has done more for the black community than I can any president I can think of in my lifetime. And, you know, Biden has done nothing. Yeah, yeah. Whereas Democrats, you don't feel like they've done anything for you or your community. No, I believe they've hurt our community. And, you know, I'm not here to judge anybody or to hate on it, but I'm just telling you what's beneficial and what's not for my community. And the Democratic Party is not. In 2020, 12 percent of black voters sided with Trump. That's a big deal, by the way. By contrast, 87 percent chose Biden. They chose their own suicide, basically, who has openly attributed much of his win to the power of the black electorate. Some polling shows that the rise in black support over 2020, Donald Trump shows 13 percent support or a Quinnipiac poll published earlier this month where he garnered 15 percent of black interest. This much is clear. There is uncertainty in black America. And with more choices on the ballot and their livelihood and their standard of living deteriorating, the Democrats have a major problem in black America. For 10 years, Patriot Mobile has been America's only Christian conservative wireless provider. And when I say only, trust me, they're the only one. I think the world of Patriot Mobile.

A highlight from What do Republicans have to do to get ahead of the Democrats?
"Cable news, noisy, boring, out of touch. That's why Salem News Channel is different. We keep you in the know. Streaming 24 -7 for free. Home to the greatest collection of conservative voices like Dennis Prager, Jay Sekulow, Mike Gallagher, and more. Salem News Channel is unfiltered and unapologetic. Watch anytime on any screen at SNC .TV and local now, channel 525. This is a special edition of the Mike Gallagher Show, the race for the White House. And we need a president who puts Americans and America first. And I'm here to tell you that that man is Ron DeSantis. Mike is in Miami today as tonight's third GOP presidential debate is hours away. I think we can read the tea leaves here. Biden's party is in trouble. They're eating themselves alive over Israel and Hamas and all these other issues where he's failing. I think every Democrat should be made to eat and own the Biden failures. And now from the Broadcast Media Center, better known as Spin Room at the Adrian Arch Center in Miami, here's Mike Gallagher. Do we blame Trump or do we blame abortion on last night's Republican shellacking in the election? Wow. We got a lot of work to do, don't we? Greetings. Welcome to Miami. We are in the Spin Room, as Doc told you. It's the place where after tonight's debate, the candidates will come into the room with their various handlers. Inevitably, somebody is going to carry a giant sign that says DeSantis. They're going to have to have a big sign for Ramaswami. Make sure you get a sign that'll fit his name on that. And we're ready to go. I mean, we got a lot of things to cover today. We got a lot of breaking news. We have plenty of work to do. I got a chance to hang out with Hugh Hewitt last night, who is one of tonight's moderators, along with Kristen Welker and Lester Holt of NBC News. Hugh gave me some pretty good insight into what we can expect tonight with the five candidates who will be on the stage here at the Adrian Arch Center. And incidentally, this wonderful lady who was the generous donor that built this performing arts center has the most difficult name to pronounce. It's Arsht, A -R -S -H -T. You go ahead. You give it a try. Am I spelling it right, Eric? Arsht. So Adrian Arsht. Now, it sounds a little clunky to say welcome to the Adrian Arsht Center, but we are in this beautiful performing arts center. We got a walkthrough of the stage last night. It's beautifully decorated, red, white, and blue everywhere. And of course, if you're watching now on the Salem News Channel with today's preview of the debate, you see all the Salem News media or the Salem Media Group signage everywhere because we are one of the media partners. The Salem Radio Network was selected to be the radio partner of NBC News for tonight's third GOP presidential debate. And I expect they're asking questions and making sure that these candidates tonight address the shellacking that the GOP took last night in Virginia, in Kentucky, in Ohio. It was a rough night for the GOP.
Fresh update on "nbc news" discussed on Stephanie Miller
"A smart idea which it's not it's absolutely not there's there's one human being on this planet who has elected as far electoral as count goes has defeated Donald Trump in a major election and that is Joe Biden yeah there's no question I know I love Gavin Newsom I love some of the democratic bench obviously we've got a great bench lined up but none of them have defeated Joe Biden in I mean defeated Donald Trump in an election so it's ludicrous that we're sitting here having this conversation about something that never happens and when it does yeah usually that incumbent loses the election yeah I'm about to get in a fight with Malcolm Nance who could kill me with one finger or perhaps his spy ring yeah but I don't know not to argue with Malcolm Nance when he's right no I don't know if he was saying you you if know Biden you know decided to retire he's saying here's the next you know president Kamala Harris I'm with down that but if it's Biden's choice I don't know it but if Malcolm meant he should step down that I couldn't I disagree more I think that's an incredible gift Republicans to have a successful and decide to step down yeah yeah I mean Joe Biden stepping down would be an extreme an extreme circumstance and I think doing just willy -nilly saying okay well maybe you sit down now I think is a disaster in the waiting I mean it's gonna be an s -show with every crack getting into the mix and the Democrats in disarray mean that would arise as a consequence of all that yeah it's just a disaster in the waiting that would only help Donald Trump and just the very fact that they're running in the first place weakens Joe Biden it generates this idea well there's blood in the water at look all these Democrats these Democrats must know something if they're running against Joe Biden thinking that he's too old or the economy is jankier than the numbers indicate and so that's a just the very of existence these primary challengers yeah weakens the incumbent and makes it more likely likely that Donald Trump's is gonna win exactly as you tweeted Trump one won't end inflation two will trigger a recession like like all Republican presidents and three will take away your health insurance every vote against Biden is a vote for economic disaster among many other disasters I mean that's the other thing is his insane hatred of Barack Obama talking again about he's gonna get rid of Obamacare this time which hasn't at this point now I don't know sixty seventy percent approval rating and I assume his health care plan will be here in two weeks yeah he no has plan other than to do it it's like this great woman from tiktok we played yesterday about all the people it's just they just want to tear everything down starting with Trump on down to these third -party candidates it's like you know the home improvement show where all you do is demolish with no plan right you know yeah yeah yeah yeah chaos is the new cocaine I mean it's a lot of people are really really into that so it's a it's just a it's last week say libertarianism is Scientology for but that was mine I mean I made the libertarian one that was a creation of my own the the chaos is the new cocaine is from the morning show I just want to make sure oh that's on Apple TV yes I'm quoting a show there's a hot lesbian there I've seen it oh yeah yeah all right so there it is yeah anyway Julianna Margulies is having sex with Reese spoon I am there yeah well I mean you know when it comes down to the economy it just drives me bananas that every time we an face election with a Democrat and especially a Democratic incumbent right we end up back in this place where people forget that Republicans are a disaster for the economy every time a Republican is in of control the White House they preside over a recession of some significant depth Donald Trump you know the most recent Republican I can't believe we're sitting here with Donald Trump as a contender again but given the fact that Donald Trump presided over not one major recession but in 2019 prior to COVID he presided over a manufacturing recession and this is the guy who was supposed to be building things and with his infrastructure weeks and all that stuff it ended up in a manufacturing recession and so yes I heard you correct yourself on the Bob Siska show with co -host Jody Hamilton. Jody Hamilton is the Kevin Bacon broadcasting of at this point. Yes. There is just one degree everywhere but that you said every Republican has brought us a recession I think because you'd said on the show last week last one or last two you're like everyone since Taft right? Yeah exactly silly me I said oh you have a last couple of Republican presidents it's yeah as you said it's every Republican president since Taft has presided over a recession and he would have if he could have gotten out of the bathtub but he couldn't. Yeah exactly right well there was a couple of them inherited that a recession but statistically speaking every Republican president since Taft has presided over a recession and good lord if you want another one you know who to vote for yeah but but why on earth would you do that? The economy is significantly improving in fact third quarter GDP just was revised up from I think 4 .9 % to 5 .2 % yeah that's that's the growth of the economy right there in a very easy to understand number and yet people like duh let's let's try the idiots again who always crash the economy what's wrong with you what is wrong with the yeah I mean I think we've got a serious short -term memory issue yeah once again we're up against the media you tweeted or you retweeted Matt Gertz who said ABC CBS NBC news programs 18 times more coverage of deplorables than vermin yeah then Trump directly putting a Hitler speech so obviously today's outdoor bike day as it always when is you're here but I did a 40 -mile ride this last Saturday and I was thinking of you because the last 10 miles were uphill and I thought that's gonna be this election that's gonna be the last 10 miles fighting the third candidates -party god knows what Russia god knows what else right yeah well we all of us here in the room need to like hold hands and clutch on to each other for dear life because the next year is going to be so incredibly insane things that we have never seen before that we can never participate that's what's gonna happen this year I mean there's this collision course between Donald Trump's criminal trials in the election and the appeals and whether he's convicted and what the legal aspect of all of this is with

Christopher Wray: Hamas May Exploit the Situation to Attack U.S.
"Pour in our southern border you here's the denouement here cut three gym so again NBC News told you a couple weeks ago don't pay any attention to Dan Bongino and those guys warning you about an elevated terror in threat the United States it's all a big conspiracy theory really listen to Christopher Wray your FBI director up on Capitol Hill yesterday talking about the quote conspiracy theory check this out but as I said a few moments ago on top of the homegrown violent extremists and domestic violent extremist threat we also cannot and do not discount the possibility that Hamas or another foreign terrorist organization may exploit the current conflict to conduct attacks here on our own soil we have kept our sights on Hamas and have multiple ongoing investigations into individuals affiliated with that foreign terrorist organization. Jim's got a confused look on his face he's like that's weird Dan that sounds like exactly what you said a month ago when NBC News called it a conspiracy conspiracy theory the eighteen -year -old journalism major at NBC News who ran out of Jergens in his basement now that he just decided strange how when I tell you it it's a conspiracy theory yet yet when Christopher Wray goes up and tells you the exact same thing all of a sudden we're supposed to take it seriously. yeah I didn't even include part 2 part 2 of the tweet the FBI says there's no information indicating a credible terrorist threat in the United States telling you what you can trust
A highlight from When do we start to the take steps to heal and protect the people of this country
"Lots of channels. Nothing to watch. Especially if you're searching for the truth. It's time to interrupt your regularly scheduled programs with something actually worth watching. Salem News Channel. Straightforward, unfiltered, with in -depth insight and analysis from the greatest collection of conservative minds. Like Hugh Hewitt, Mike Gallagher, Sebastian Gorka, and more. Find truth. Watch 24 -7 on SNC .TV and on Local Now, Channel 525. The Mike Gallagher Show. For what purpose does a gentleman from Louisiana seek recognition? Mr. Speaker. That is a nice ring to it, by the way. Mr. Speaker, I offer a privileged resolution to notify the Senate of the election of Mike Johnson as Speaker of the House of Representatives and ask for its immediate consideration. In the ReliefFactor .com studios, here's Mike. I saw a TV commercial last night. Remember that kid on that funny TV show, was it Malcolm in the Middle? Wasn't his name Frankie something? Isn't Frankie Muniz or Muniz? And he's doing a commercial for Hair Club for Men. He's like a race car driver now. I guess he races cars. And I just saw about 15 seconds of it. And evidently, he's a Hair Club for Men. You know, of all the things I'm trying to get my life together in my 60s, I've lost a bunch of weight. I'm trying to work out every day. I'm on the bike. I'm doing my thing. I'm not an attractive person. I don't claim to be. If you watch me on Sale & News Channel, you can confirm. I'm not really a very handsome guy. I don't think I would ever be mistaken for a model. But I would love to lose the bald spot. I hate the bald spot. Years ago, I was going up the stairs and Bonnie Simmons was a secretary, was an assistant in our Salem, Dallas offices. And she was up on the balcony. She looked down at me and she said, look at that. She was British. Look at that bald spot. You look like Friar Tuck. And then I insulted her very badly because I was hurt. I would love to get rid of the bald spot. I don't think you can get rid of a bald spot. You can work on thinning hair. I don't think the bald spot, I don't think there's much they can do back there. But I wonder if, I mean, plugs and all that, that would be rough. Is that what Hair Club is? Or hair growth? Tracy, see if you can find out what Frankie is doing. And I appreciate the text message I just got from Minnesota. I listen to you on the radio and you sound like a handsome devil. That's true. On radio, I'm very handsome. On TV, I'm just a schlubby looking guy. You know who I look like? I don't know why I'm in such a good mood. You know who I look like in person and this is not something to brag about? The late, great Mel Torme. Now, he was amazing. He was a great talent, right? Wrote, you know, chestnuts, roasting, but he looked kind of like a frog. And that's who I look like. If you don't believe me, Google Mel Torme and then look at a picture of me and embarrassingly, that's who I most look like. That's the celebrity I look the most like, Mel Torme. But anyway, if I could get rid of this bald spot somehow, maybe I could – I'm not going to wear a toupee, never going to dye my hair, a lot of gray, getting old and not for sissies. Hey, being in the good mood I'm in, I'm going to go out on a limb and I'm going to say something that's probably going to get me in trouble, particularly with Ron DeSantis supporters. But I'm going to say it anyway. I think Nikki Haley is going to surpass Ron DeSantis. I think Governor Nikki Haley is the one to watch. She is surging. She's now ahead of DeSantis in New Hampshire. She's now tied for second with DeSantis in Iowa. I think Nikki Haley is carving out a lane that might just give her the path to second place. Now, I don't know that anybody is going to overtake President Trump. But then again, you never know what's going to happen with anything. You never know what's going to happen with anybody or anything. And Nikki Haley, The Daily Beast, Matt Lewis over The Daily Beast had an analysis. Here's why Nikki Haley is gaining in the polls and Ron DeSantis is not. She's now tied with DeSantis for second in Iowa according to a new Des Moines Register NBC News MediaCom Iowa poll. More importantly, the trend lines show DeSantis down three points and Haley up 10 points since August. What's more, Haley has already surpassed DeSantis in New Hampshire. She's now in second place in the first in the nation primary. She is emerging as the alternative to Donald Trump, at least in part because she's more likable than DeSantis. Now, that's according to The Daily Beast. I don't know, is she more likable than – frankly, the emerging narrative is that anybody is more likable than Ron DeSantis. I don't think of Ron DeSantis as likable or unlikable. He's kind of a policy guy. He's smart. He's effective. He's accomplished. He's really – he's good. There's nothing wrong with Ron DeSantis except he's not Donald Trump. But a lot of people are convinced that Ron DeSantis is still the alternative. I don't know. I don't know the answer to this. I don't know. But The Daily Beast's Matt Lewis writes that Nikki Haley has not made the mistake that Ron DeSantis made. He asserts that Ron DeSantis chose a lane that was already taken. Instead of assembling a coalition of Reagan conservatives who never liked Trump and former Trumpers who are ready to move on, Ron DeSantis chose to ignore or offend the former and focus on attracting current Trumpers who have no interest in quitting the Donald. She chose a lane that went after Trump pretty rigidly. She criticized Trump for adding $8 trillion to our debt. She called him the most disliked politician in America. And Matt Lewis' analysis is her strategy worked. As recently as this spring, Ron DeSantis looked like the best positioned Republican to take on Trump. Haley seemed as unlikely to catch fire as Mike Pence who, as we know, dropped out of the race this past weekend. Today, he writes, Haley is the one to watch while Ron DeSantis' star seems to be fading. Do you agree with that? Now, the team gave me a clip that went viral. Ron DeSantis went on a very popular podcast with a guy named Patrick Bet -David, this PBD podcast. And it's getting a lot of traction. It's a very popular podcast. I hear a lot of people say that they're engaging in this podcast that this guy does. And it's one of those teams, I don't know, it's called the PBD podcast. And the guy's name is Patrick Bet -David. And people took this clip and ran with it and said, this Patrick Bet -David has single -handedly ended Ron DeSantis' candidacy. Now, that's hyperbolic and that's exaggeration to be sure. But it is fair to, and I was wondering about this. I really debated this. Driving into work this morning, I thought, should I play this clip or not? I don't want to embarrass Ron DeSantis. I don't want to attack him. I'm not anti -DeSantis. I'm not anti -Republican. We desperately need to defeat the Democrats in 2024. I'm convinced the Democrat we're going to have to beat is Gavin Newsom. Incidentally, did you see Newsom over in China? What the heck's the California governor doing kissing up to Xi in China? Well, he wants to run for president. He thinks he's going to be the Democrat nominee. And I believe he very well could be. Now, I'm going to play this clip for you against my better judgment. Tracy's convincing me we should play it just so people can hear what people are talking about on social media. DeSantis is terribly embarrassed, I'm sure, by this. And he is very rigid in controlling his media interviews. Trust me, I've got some personal experience in that field. Here's Governor DeSantis on this very popular podcast that has already been viewed now millions and millions of times. DeSantis wears cowboy boots a lot. And his critics make fun of his penchant for cowboy boots. And they suggest that the reason he's wearing boots is that he's got lifts in them because he's short. So this guy, this Patrick Bet -David goes right at him on the issue of cowboy boots. Again, not a very comfortable place for Governor DeSantis to be. I thought I'd share it with you anyway. I know you were on, what do you call it? What was it? Bill Maher. And Bill Maher talked about the boots. I've seen you walk with these boots. Go ahead and play this clip. This on TikTok went viral. It doesn't have a million views. It doesn't have, you know, 10 million views. This thing's got 1 .2 million likes. And some people are wondering... They've not shown this to you. Okay, what they're trying to say with this is that in your boots, you have heels. No, no, no. Those are just standard off the rack, Lucchese. How tall are you Governor? 5 '11. Okay. Why don't you wear tennis shoes and dress shoes? I do wear tennis shoes when I work out. Okay, I got a gift for you. I'd love for you to wear, okay, I shop at Ferragamo. I don't accept gifts. I can't accept it. I'm sorry. I mean, it was just a really awkward, cringey moment. Governor DeSantis has a look on his face like, how did I get myself in this position? And it probably didn't do him any favors to go on the PBD podcast because that guy clearly just wanted to embarrass Ron DeSantis. And I just keep wondering about people like Trump. I don't know that Trump would ever put himself in that position. He'd go right back at the guy and attack him. That's not who DeSantis is. DeSantis is a very serious guy. And I suppose the narrative that has emerged is that Governor DeSantis isn't particularly likable. And if you believe this Daily Beast analysis by Matt Davis, Nikki Haley is. She is more likable. Now, a lot of text messages coming in already on the MyPillow text line and I want to open up our phone lines. The PHD weight loss phone number is 800 -655 -MIKE. And I want you to give me your thoughts about Nikki Haley getting the momentum she's getting. Do you agree with me that she's the one to watch right now? Here's a text from Maryland. Mike, I hope you and your audience does a deep dive into this before anyone dares to support Nikki Haley. The last thing we need is another globalist in the White House. South Carolina from the Upstate. Mike, the problem with Ron DeSantis is his establishment Republican donors and their endorsement. And finally, from Florida, from Orlando, Nikki Haley wants to bring Palestinians here. She's a neocon supreme. She comes off as bitchy, too. Bitchy. Hmm. Does she? What do you think? 800 -655 -MIKE. That last debate, I mean, she got real shrill. She went nuts on Vivek Ramaswamy. And I thought, if anybody thinks she's likable, think again. But again, I hate to criticize her. She might be the nominee. Let's find out. 1 -800 -655 -MIKE. Give me your take on Nikki Haley surging and on Ron DeSantis fading. Is she the one to watch? Or are you worried about Nikki Haley as the GOP nominee? Let's find out. Here in the Relief Factor Studios for a Tuesday, it's Halloween, the Halloween edition. 800 -655 -MIKE. 800 -655 -6453.

Watch 24 -7 on SNC .TV and on Local Now, Channel 525. Welcome to today's podcast, sponsored by Hillsdale College. All things Hillsdale at Hillsdale .edu. I encourage you to take advantage of the many free online courses there. And, of course, listen to the Hillsdale Dialogues, all of them at hughforhillsdale .com or just Google Apple, iTunes, and Hillsdale. Morning, Glory America. Bonjour, hi Canada. I'm Hugh Hewitt, live inside the Beltway. In fact, I want to thank Dwayne for sitting in for me yesterday and Morgan Ortegas for sitting in for me on Wednesday. That will be back and forth for preparation for the debate on November 8th, which Salem is co -hosting with NBC News. Doing my debate prep up in New York and so I go back and forth and looking forward to working with Lester and Kristen on this debate. I hope you'll be watching on November 8th. The news this morning, the main killer is still at large and details about the investigation are sparse and Maine is spooked. I will come back to this because it is rather shocking. Maine may be the safest place I've ever lived in terms of you just you aren't aware of threats or violent crime. It might have the lowest violent crime rate of the 50 states. And that killer card is got skills. He also has what apparently is a schizophrenic break. Lester was in Maine yesterday, interviewed someone in Lewiston who said that the family is also very much into guns, but that Robert Card had begun wearing powerful hearing aids because he was hearing things like people bashing him, specifically with regards to the bowling alley and the and the bar in which he killed the 18 people and wounded 13 more. So this is a schizophrenic break. The New York Times carries a story. No, it's The Washington Post. Maine's loose gun laws come under scrutiny after deadly shootings. I think we will find out that he purchased his guns legally. And I think we will find out that the Army did not tell anyone after they had him hospitalized for two weeks at West Point this summer. And I think we will try and figure out what to learn from this, as with every mass killing. I was talking on the train back to D .C. last night that I have some hope that eventually I will be able to not go full minority report, but be able to I .D. people who have some sort of schizophrenic break, some sort of mental breakdown and are also in the possession of federally purchased and background cleared weapons. That should be a signal to local law enforcement. But there are privacy issues, et cetera. Let me go to the war. The United States is in this war, whether or not we declare it, whether or not how much we are into it. Last night, the United States retaliated against Iran via airstrikes in Syria on Iranian troops and the IRGC operating there. The amount and intensity of those strikes has not been released. And it will be they are narrowly tailored strikes in self -defense, said Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin. They do not constitute a shift in our approach to the Israel Hamas conflict. I don't know how they expect to obtain deterrence this way, but they do. And I don't think it will work. There were two missile attacks on a city in Egypt, Taba, Egypt, near the border with Israel. They were believed to be, according to Times of Israel, missiles or drones from Yemen that fell short of their intended target in Israel. Egypt has reserved the right to strike back. The IDF killed five Hamas commanders yesterday.

I want to thank Charlie. He's an incredible guy. His spirit, his love of this country. He's done an amazing job building one of the most powerful youth organizations ever created. Turning Point USA. We will not embrace the ideas that have destroyed countries, destroyed lives, and we are going to fight for freedom on campuses across the country. That's why we are here. Brought to you by the loan experts I trust. Andrew and Todd at Sierra Pacific Mortgage at andrewandtodd .com. The House of Representatives does not have a speaker and says very clearly in the United States Constitution, the House of Representatives shall choose their speaker and other officers and shall have the sole power of impeachment. But right now there is no speaker of the House. Jim Jordan has effectively withdrawn from the speaker's race. We warned you on this program, the moderates were going to dig in. The moderates were going to try to hold the line and they have. The moderates want nothing to do with a conservative speaker. This is them executing their revenge from what happened with Motion to Vacate. It is a tit for tat back and forth. And I could tell you talking to the grassroots, talking to donors. I've had a lot of donor meetings this last week. Really amazing grassroots donors, really amazing people. There's some great donors out there that really love the country. They are so upset with the Republican Party. They are so over this clown show, this circus. The fact that you vacate the chair and then you have no plan to replace it. You can't have Jim. You cannot even get Jim Jordan to become speaker. It is widespread dysfunction. And the grassroots agrees. Talking everyday grassroots warriors. Let me read this one email and I understand. I understand that these emails can be more passion than actual reality. But I mean, I'll just read this one. Frank says, Charlie, the Republican Party is dead to me. We'll never vote for any of them again. OK, I hope you're wrong, but I understand the passion, the sentiment. I hope you change your mind. But what am I supposed to say? Yeah. Vote for Republicans, because if you give them power, what are they going to do? It's not exactly making the best sales pitch. So now there's new headlines that Jim Jordan has basically backed out. Jim Jordan will not pursue a third vote for speaker. That's too bad. And I'd like to see him continue to push this fight forward, but you can't blame him. I mean, only he knows the intensity and the things being thrown at him. So Jim Jordan is a great American. Jim Jordan is a true conservative. We've been pushing him this entire time. But 20 moderates want to try to get in the way to prevent Jim Jordan from becoming speaker. Now, there's bipartisan support, NBC News says. For McHenry Patrick to become temporary House speaker. Hold on a second, bipartisan support. That's a bad, bad headline, everybody. Wait, did we win the House or did we not win the House? We are effectively destroying our House majority because we cannot select a speaker. We warned about this back in January. We've warned about this last week. And I'm sad to say that if Patrick McHenry becomes temporary House speaker, it empowers the Democrats. This is worse than business as usual. The Democrats did not have any power this this last summer. You could say what you want about how you didn't like Kevin McCarthy and you didn't like the C .R. and the debt ceiling. I can resonate with that. But we had real committees on weaponization of government. We had real stuff going on Biden. So we asked, what was the plan? What was the plan? What was the plan? What was the plan? What was the plan? People said, well, just trust the process. Here we are trusting the process. And if Patrick McHenry is getting bipartisan support, that makes me not want to support him. We want a Republican speaker of the House, not a bipartisan speaker of the House. Big difference. We voted for a Republican majority. Notice that impeachment of Biden is gone. By the way, Biden's numbers are going to probably go up five to 10 points in the next week or two, not because he deserves it, but because you do a foreign visit and there's war and all that. It's it's one of the iron laws of politics is when a foreign leader goes abroad in a time of crisis, numbers go up. So we rolled the dice. We did motion to vacate. And some of you are going to say, you know, McKevin McCarthy totally deserved it. Hard to disagree on the C .R. and the debt ceiling stuff. When you spend two trillion dollars that you do not have in the border remains wide open. Jack Smith is unchecked. We're spending money Ukraine. I'm not going to defend that. Bipartisan means concessions. Because we cannot get our act together, because the Republican Party cannot get behind a single speaker, Jim Jordan or otherwise, if it ends up happening that Patrick McHenry becomes speaker of the House and bipartisan support unites behind it, you will have effectively neutered the Republican Congress. Pramila Jalapal, Jayapal, who is left of Joseph Stalin, has come out and said, quote, I'm waiting to see what the assurances are about power sharing. The chairman of the Progressive Caucus, your Republican Congress is going to have to now do power sharing with progressive Democrats. If this ends up happening and if I'm not going to say it is a guarantee, it is as if another election happened, breaking news, CNN Republicans lose House majority. Quote, what do we have to ensure? What happens here reflects the fact that the Democrats are essentially governing this body. You might have won the House of Representatives at the ballot box. But then you lose it because you can't select the speaker. So this is happening in real time. And Jim Jordan has backed out and some of you are very angry that, you know, Jim Jordan is, you know, this one here. Why is Jim Jordan turning into a fluff? Thought he was a fighter. What is going on? Look, you can't blame him. I understand you're angry and all this, but the 20 moderates are not moving. They're not budging, guys. This is the same problem that we illustrated when we said maybe Kevin McCarthy is not as bad as you think he is. And I will say this. The complaints against Kevin McCarthy, totally legit. Fine. C .R. debt ceiling. I don't like that stuff. But Kevin McCarthy would be and still to this day would be a better speaker. Then a bipartisan coalition government, that is a fact, that's a fact, power sharing coalition government, which is now not something that is being remotely entertained. By the way, we've been attacked on this program by people. Charlie, you're fear mongering. Not going to happen. I'm not going to say it's a guarantee, but it's about a 50 50 shot that there's a power sharing agreement at this point to share power with Pramila Jayapal. By the way, the Democrats, they're so smart. Nancy Pelosi told Kevin McCarthy, I'll always have your back. She's a liar, obviously. Kevin McCarthy gets the motion to vacate all the Democrats. The order came down from the Democrats. Do not bail out Kevin McCarthy. And Democrats said, huh? The Republicans don't have a plan. We might be able to take over the House. The Democrats said, hey, what do we have to lose? We just we just have to sit in our chair through another round of voting and yell. Jeffries, Jeffries for another hour. OK, so the Democrats, like good Stalinists, listen to the Politburo, got the order from on high and they said, OK, let's get rid McCarthy. Let's roll the dice. And now they might actually have won. The Democrats might have taken over the House majority without an election. The American people gave the Republicans a majority and the Democrats very well might take it over because of our dysfunction. Now, it's important to note, if something happened to Biden and Kamala, presidency could only be a person with the true title of speaker, not speaker pro tem or acting speaker. So if McEnany or anyone else is sitting in the speaker's chair as anything other than the true speaker elected by a roll call vote of the House, then after Biden, Harris, the president pro tem of the Senate, and then it would go to Anthony Blinken. Anthony Blinken, Lord help us all. And there's a lot of frustration coming in here. Freedom at Charlie Kirk dot com. And people say, well, Charlie, what is the plan? Honestly, that's not for me to answer. I'm not the one that has been calling for this stuff. I'm in the one that's actually been and I've received a fair amount of hostility from people, a fair amount of hostility to people. And that's fine. I appreciate it. I appreciate it. You guys were blooding me up and send tell me to go to bad places, Gehenna, which is Hebrew for help, because I was a little bit cautious, which is against some of my wiring, which is like, guys, hold on. Let's be careful. Some of you are saying, Charlie, give the Democrats the majority. We never had a majority. Pull the mask off and let's move on. Yeah, I think that's very irresponsible. That's not a good idea. A source familiar told The Daily Caller that, quote, Jordan will continue to run and try to shore up votes until then remain speaker designee, not dropping out McHenry temporary till January. Republicans are not exactly making the best case to give us more political power. What do you think about the Jim Jordan, Kevin McCarthy motion to vacate all of this together? Are you pleased with how the last two and a half weeks have gone? Do you think this is the best use of a precious majority? The only thing in government we control. Have you been thrilled post motion to vacate? Email me. Freedom at Charlie Kirk. Dot com. Hey, everybody, Charlie Kirk here every Halloween, you hear about the dangers in the candy your kids will get. But this year, the real tricks are in the meat aisle. Good ranchers wants to take the trick out of your meat, and they're throwing in a treat for my listeners. Lab grown meat is growing more and more popular. Foreign meat dresses up in a product of USA label and M .R .N .A. vaccine development is on the rise for agriculture. What's in your meat and food is more in question than ever before. Admit these haunting truths. The real hero arises. Good ranchers as the number one place to get America's best beef, pork, chicken and seafood delivered. Good ranchers products are transparently sourced, all American delicious. When you shop at good ranchers dot com, you don't have to question what's in your meat or where your meat is coming from. With one hundred percent American guarantee and a transparent vaccination policy, you'll always know where your meat comes from and what's in it. I trust good ranchers and you should to use promo code Kirk to get thirty dollars off free express shipping on your box of America's best meat and seafood today. That's code Kirk for thirty dollars off your box today at good ranchers dot com. That's good ranchers dot com promo code Kirk. American meat delivered. OK, I think I have to do a better job of explaining this because we're receiving a lot of emails of people confused, saying, Charlie, what do you mean? We could lose the majority. OK, so let me do a better job of kind of articulating this. So you have four hundred and thirty five, right, like 435, 435 members of the United States House of Representatives voting members. You have some people from Guam or the Virgin Islands that aren't voting members that can sit on committees. OK, there are four hundred and thirty five people in the United States Congress and they come together and obviously divided by party. And so one party has more members than the other Republicans. I think right now of two twenty one to twenty to twenty one, right, depending on who's sick or who's in the hospital. Not a joke. You know, when you have to twenty one, it's tough to organize right to twenty to twenty one. So your margin gets to twenty one. Thank you. And Democrats have to twelve and then there's two vacant seats. And so it goes up and down and up and down. It's tough. And they don't allow remote voting. Thankfully, they shouldn't for voting for speaker. So you have to be there in person. So when you have a majority to twenty one and the bad guys have a minority, you should be able to say, hey, that the magic number, whoever can get two hundred and seventeen votes, then you become speaker of the House. You have a majority. You control committees, legislative agenda, all that stuff. So but if part of your party, part of the two twenty one decide to go in a line with the two twelve of the Democrats, which only takes five to five, Republicans could hand the majority over to Democrats and they might.
A highlight from Upstream Works transforms United Airlines passenger, agent CX and EX, Podcast
"This is Doug Green and I'm the publisher of Telecom Reseller and I'm very pleased to have with us today Rob McDougall who is the CEO of Upstream Works. Rob, thank you for joining us today. Hey, great to be here, Doug. Good to talk with you again. Well, this is really exciting. I've been enjoying talking with you just before we started our podcast about what's going on in the AR market. And you know, what's exciting to me is we've been doing a series of podcasts the last few weeks where folks have been coming forward and talking about how they've made AI a practical tool for a company or for an organization or for maybe an entire industry. So we're going to be talking about an exciting story today about how Upstream Works has changed United Airlines and also about the idea of operationalizing AI. So we're going to be talking about those topics in a second, but for people that don't know Rob Upstream Works well or maybe know a little bit about you guys, what is Upstream Works? Upstream Works is a software application company. We focus on the agent experience and we provide an agent desktop application that's designed to run either on premise or in cloud so that your infrastructure doesn't matter. Our goal is to make sure that your agents have a consistent interface that they can work with across platforms, across applications, across channels. And these days we've been using the term EX. So what you're doing, it feeds right into that employee experience. Absolutely. We call it AX because we're focused on agents, but that's what it's all about. A happy agent is going to give a better service. We believe that that smile on the agent's face comes across the phone. It's a tough job. It's a tough market. You know, you can't find enough people to do that job today, so you want to keep those employees happy and they're the face of your company to the world. So with that in mind, you have actually taken AI and you're doing something called operationalizing AI. Sorry, that didn't come out so smoothly. So what is operationalizing AI? First, it's a tough word to say. I will give you that. Look at it this way. If I was to ask you, Doug, to go to my office, go to my computer, log in and add yourself into my CRM system or billing system, you wouldn't know what you had to do. You understand my ask, but you don't know where my office is. You don't know how to get into my computer. You don't know what my CRM or HR systems are. You don't know how they work. AI is the same thing. Even with the new generative AI model, is it really good at understanding? I know what the guy's asking, but I don't know how to do it. Operationalizing AI means doing that connectivity between what the AI can do and making it do something actually for your business. So integrating it into your backend systems, providing an interface that an agent can use to view things easily, using it to provide other business value like routing or translations, but making it actually work properly in your complex in silo the contact center. So this is really interesting because what you're telling me is it simplifies things. Well, tremendously. What we saw back in the early days of chat and email is a lot of people would put in chat and email, but they were discreet channels. They didn't integrate with the contact center. It was a bad experience for customers. You had to have specialized agents who got different training because the desktop interfaces were different. The tools were different. Omnichannel has now taken us into a realm where an agent can deal with sort of one set of tools across the different channels, but then you start throwing AI into the mix and it comes up in a different place. So you put in AI and it's got its own interface. So I need special agents to do something over here, or it doesn't actually integrate with the other tools that I have in the contact center. So I've got to make all that stuff work together. And this is what Upstreamworks has been doing for 23 years is being the spider in the middle of the web and taking the applications that are important for your business and help you make those work for the business and for the agents to make their life easier. So it's interesting that you're using a new thing to basically follow your brand story, which has what you're describing sounds like what Upstream is all about. Absolutely. We focus on enterprise contact centers. We don't go for the small contact center. And the reason we focus there is because large enterprises, when they deal with products, what they want is something that's shrink wrapped in out of the box, like Word, and they just put in the disk and it all works, but it's got to work exactly the way they work. And that doesn't exist. So what we have always done is we built a product that is designed to provide all the features out of the box, but have all the configurability and integratability such that I can integrate it into the workflows that the company has and make those work properly in an enterprise environment. And AI is no different. You could look at a manufacturer who's going to say, oh, we'll put in our product and here's our AI. And the company says, well, that's nice, but we use this other AI. That's where Upstream works comes in. And they may use Amazon AI for translations, and they may use Google AI to search their knowledge base, and they use Watson to look up their medical information. They may have different AI applications. Our goal is to make them all work and make it seamless to the agent. So the agent doesn't know there's different AIs happening. It's just there's stuff that shows up and stuff happens. And I'd love to hear a little bit about your product line and offerings right now, but maybe you could tell me that in the context of where you're offering this operationalizing AI service. Well, it comes as an actual part of our product, right? It's right there. It's right there. So one of the components is a desktop component called Virtual Agent Portal. And we spent a lot of time kind of working through what to name this, because we didn't want people to start thinking we're providing AI to them, because we're not an AI provider. But what Virtual Agent Portal allows you to do, it's a kind of an open placeholder, so that if I need to interact between an agent and an AI on the desktop, it can go into Virtual Agent Portal. And I can do things like I can try Amazon, or I could switch it out for Google, because maybe I get a better price. The agent doesn't see the difference. I don't need to retrain them. I'm using a certain AI, and I put in a different training model, and I want to do some A -B testing to see which one's giving me better results. The agent won't see the difference. Virtual Agent Portal handles all that in the background and feeds the information back to management to say, okay, yeah, the new changes are working, so we're going to now use that AI. But it's all about making it transparent to the agent, so they're focused on the customer and my understanding is that with all this, you guys have now developed and are operating with a very big customer. Yeah, somebody we've been having a lot of fun with over the summer is United Airlines. So they're a big Cisco shop. They've got Cisco UCCE. They've got Cisco Webex. And they had this concept that they called Agent on Demand. And what they wanted to be able to do was to provide airline -side services to customers remotely. And with Webex and the Cisco Contact Center product, those things didn't work together. So Cisco brought in Upstream Works, and so we're kind of the glue between all this. So now what happens at United Airlines is, and if you're traveling and you're at United, look around because you're going to see QR codes all over the place. You can shoot the QR code with your phone, and you will get hooked up with a live video call with the United Gate agent. So it's for doing airline -side things. So can't buy my baggage. I got to go change my flight. I want to change my seat. You know, all the stuff that you could go up to the gate to do, there's a big lineup, or you're in the United Club having a drink and you want to do this, you can now do this on your phone remotely. From a customer experience point of view, it's an awesome thing. But what's even better about it is think about gate agents. These are the people who are standing at the gate and they're doing stuff and then you board your flight and then they go back in the back room and they sit around until their next flight. Well, now what they do is they go back in the back room and United has little, I'll call them informal contact centers in every airport. Gate agents leave their post, they go back and they get on the phone and they start dealing with other customers from all over the world. So from United's point of view, they're now getting much better utilization of their staff and they're assisting people at any airport where there's United Airlines. And from the customer's point of view, they just know that, hey, I want to change my seat and I can do it on my phone and talk to a person to do it. So it's a win for the customers and it's an absolute win for United as well because now, you know, I don't have to line up to do this stuff and I can better utilize my agents. It just occurred to me that it's liberating for both sides of that equation. In other words, as you were mentioning from the customer point of view, now I don't have to stand even, you know, it was used to be a problem. I have to find the right line to stand in. That is, you know, we've all had that experience. I can just click on one of these wherever I am in the airport and get help. Yeah, absolutely. You hit the QR code and it's going to ask for your flight number. So you put your flight number in and your passenger name, and then you're going to get to the right person to talk about the right stuff. It doesn't matter what line you're going to get in because it's skills routed to the right person. Wow. And that also means that remote, to your point, remote agents, whether they're at an informal contact center, a little mini one in the back office there behind the gate, or maybe just as in a more, it may be out of a home even, right there, there is help now, you know, late at night, maybe there's no one at the little airport in a smaller center, which United does fly in and out of, maybe you're just talking to someone somewhere else. That smaller center, you could talk to an agent at home, but you could also be talking to an agent who's on shift at O 'Hare in between flights. Right. So that's really, that really is an amazing step forward. And it really, it leverages all the technologies already in place. Yeah. And then, and then they went further because they said, you know what we, cause you can, you can escalate between voice video and chat on the application. You don't have to do video call. You can also just chat with the agent as well. But they've also got translations. So they're using, I believe it's Amazon for doing, there's Google, sorry, they're using Google to do translations, but now I can go on, I can click that QR code, say I'm Spanish. I can type in in Spanish, what the agent sees is coming up in English and they answer in English and the person gets it back in Spanish. And this is a great use of generative AI because that's, I will say a year ago, when you showed translations in a demo, it was anyone spoke the language went, yeah, that doesn't really work. The language was stilted generative AI has, has changed the game on translations because generative AI can translate really well. So that's a very excellent use case for it. This is very exciting because it sort of opens up so many doors that, you know, the, the agent might be in Berlin, the, the, the other, the passenger might be in Mexico city and they're able to talk to each other in their own languages. Yep. And you can do it across industry as well. Think about, you know, you as a person, you go to a drug store and you need to consult with a doctor and they've got a nurse practitioner there who can triage. And then click a QR code and get a video conference going with a doctor who may be at a central site. Now I'm sitting, having a conversation with a medical professional via video that's been queued up. And, you know, on the doctor's side, he's between patients, he logs onto the system and he just starts taking some calls and he can deal with patients. And now I don't have to have doctors everywhere. I can centralize them and I put nurse practitioners around. So there's a lot of healthcare uses for the same type of application. Hey Rob, let's stay with that a second, but in both cases, because, um, do you, do you, I'm going to use maybe the wrong term, but is there a continuity on each case? In other words, let's say, um, I opened up a conversation as a United customer or as a, as a patient and it's concluded, but now I have the same problem maybe four hours later. Will the next person who helps me know about my last conversation? Well, we captured the interaction history of every interaction that happens. So the answer, the quick answer is yes. Um, as a, as an agent or a doctor or a gate agent, uh, you can go back and review the previous recording, um, or the transcript of what's going on, or again, another great use of generative AI. You could also get a summary delivered back to you of what had gone on on that previous call, but that whole contact history is tracked. So every single time Doug Green contacts, they're going to be able to say Doug Green always contacts us and says, we screwed his seat up. He does this every single flight. So maybe he's just pulling our leg. So, you know, it works both ways. And that's really amazing because that's the type of information, you know, old school that, you know, there would be someone around who knew some other people and would say, yeah, look at Doug. And this is, he does that all the time. Here's how to handle it. Now we're able to do this on a, on a, and that must make agent life or the doctor life, whoever's receiving the contact a little bit easier, right? They've, they've got that contextual and historical information. Yeah. We've always believed, I was talking about the elephant never forgets. And I've always believed that as a person contacting a business, there are certain things that I know the business should know those things as well. Most importantly, I know that I called last Thursday about the same thing. The business should know that the agent who picks up my call, this is, you know, this is video or just a voice call, but the agent should know that as well. And that's the important part of interaction history. So regardless of the channel you come in on, the agent has access to that information and they can see what that context is. Cause that's all important to them providing you good service. Rob, you know, I know it's early days and, and, but you know, this was an historic summer for travel. So United you've already flown, if you will, through a challenging time. What's the reaction, what's United telling you and what are customers saying what's happening? Uh, United loves it. Um, all of the airlines are aware of it and are looking and, and want to understand how they've done it. Um, we're getting a lot of inbound, uh, requests coming in from basically all the major airline carriers from very senior people. Um, I think over the Labor Day weekend, it was something like, I don't know, 2 .3 or 2 .8 million passengers went through Chicago O 'Hare airport, uh, and NBC news and Chicago did a section on United and all the travelers and right in the middle of it is, and they have this agent on demand application and they show here's a phone talking to an agent. That's the upstream application right there, which was very cool. So Rob, you know, uh, with this, this, uh, work you're doing with United, I understand they turned to you because they were able to find you as a reliable source for this. So original the agent on demand idea, uh, came from United. Um, and they, they did a proof of concept to say, okay, it kind of works, but it wasn't robust enough for sort of the enterprise you will. Um, and they turned to Cisco who was sort of their trusted communications provider and said, can you do this? And Cisco looked into it and they came back and said, no, we can't get all the bits and pieces, but we can't make them work together. And then somebody inside Cisco who knew upstream, wasn't talk to upstream. And so Cisco came to us and we said, yeah, of course we can do that. So it went back to United said, okay, we have a solution. Um, and we put that into United and they'd been extremely happy with the stability and how well it works. So everything's great. And since then it's, I don't, I mean, maybe it's early to say this, it sounds like it's on its way to becoming an industry standard. Uh, we're getting a ton of inbound interest. People are coming up and saying, you know, we, we, we've heard about the agent on demand. We want to know how it works and how you do it. And, and now we find out that upstream works is kind of the key enabler here. So, yeah, we're getting a lot of inbound demand on it, which is great. Well, uh, I wanted to, uh, conclude our podcast with just about how we can get a hold of products from upstream works. I understand that you're a channel oriented company. So do you have a channel pro program? We have a channel program. Uh, we do not sell directly at all. Uh, we have distribution channels, uh, throughout, uh, Canada, the U S and Europe. Um, we're available, um, on the Amazon platform, we're available on the Cisco platforms. Um, and we are expanding our market. So if there's, you know, if you're one of our resellers, uh, you know, you, you can, you can get at this. Um, if you're new to us and you want to talk with us, you've got some opportunities you want to discuss. Uh, we do have a channel program. We're really easy to deal with. Um, basically we can sign you up and then we'll do all the heavy lifting and until such time as you want to take on as much of the sales training and implementation training as you want to based on your business needs. Sounds like a great way for a channel partner right now or an MSP to win with AI. Absolutely. Absolutely. Well, this is an exciting, ongoing story, Rob. I really hope that we get to do an additional podcast, maybe just about the United application, if you will, or, or that the, what you're doing there and in healthcare and maybe some other industries, learn some more news and do some stuff in the future. But for now, I want to thank you for joining us. Where can we learn more about upstream works? www .upstreamworks .com. Well, I hope everyone takes a visit and takes a second look, but for now, thanks very much for joining me today. Thank you, Doug. It's been really fun.
NBC News: Biden's Approval Plummets Among Black Population
"Says that biden's approval rating among black voters is listen this as our new poll shows the president's approval among black voters is down 17 points the first year of his presidency mr biden is also down by double digits among leptinos voters college degree and independence and as we mentioned fifty nine percent of democratic primary voters tell us they want to see a challenger to president biden fifty nine percent of democratic voters say they want a challenger to joe biden he's down 17 points with african -americans now this also is an issue of enthusiasm and i want understand you to what enthusiasm means just so you i can get through the political bs for you traditionally when you the party that is in power there is less enthusiasm from that group of voters because you have the power and there's more enthusiasm for the underdog who's going to get you out of office okay so you can go back in history of polling and you can see that but right now there is a significant separation usually there's a slight separation right the party that's in power there's more contentment you think you're fine you're not as worried in the party that's lost power because you want to win back the white house or the house or the senate but the numbers are usually pretty close three to four percentage points that's changing this time republican voters are significantly more enthusiastic about the 2024 election than democrats not just a little bit which would be normal significantly more listen to this data from again nbc news with this new poll there's also this we found an enthusiasm gap between the two parties we ask folks on a scale of one to ten how enthusiastic are you about the presidential election and you can see republicans a democrat there is a gap right there where's the lag for democrats we found
A highlight from The First Edition of Would You Let Joe Biden"
"Good morning America. Good Monday. Some of you are getting up and getting out the door. I'm glad I am with you. I'm Hugh Hewitt in Studio North going down to the Beltway this week. Oh, back to the Beltway. Gotta go do my work. Gotta go do my job. I want you to begin this segment with me by reflecting on how bad can the polls actually get for one person. Because John Ellis, now you've heard me mention John. John has been on the show before. Ellis on items the site formerly known as Twitter, now known as X, he produces two sub stacks. News items, which I read every morning before I go on the air. That's where I learned about Amazon investing in AI this morning. And political items, which is a second sub stack. And that just collects all the political data. And for years and years and years, John Ellis was the man behind the curtain at News Corp. And he ran the decision desk when it actually ran well. And he ran many, many other things at News Corp. And he's a very, very smart guy. So Ellis puts out these two news sub stacks that I read. And one of them, political items, carries with it the additional benefit of sparing me from having to figure out which polls to read. Because every couple of weeks or three weeks, he puts out the polls in one place. So John Ellis knows polling. He knows which ones are trash. He does not send you the trash one. So I ignore all polls until I see a poll show up in the news items or political items. So polls in one place rolled in on Saturday morning. And I don't want to get sued for copyright. You should subscribe to polls in one place and political items. But John summarized three of these. Number one, NBC News. Three quarters of voters say they're concerned about President Joe Biden's age and mental fitness. Three quarters. Three quarters. Number two, Washington Post ABC News. A Washington Post ABC News poll finds President Biden struggling to gain approval from a skeptical public. With dissatisfaction growing over his handling of the economy and immigration, a rising share saying the United States is doing too much to aid Ukraine in its war with Russia, and broad concerns about his age as he seeks a second term. More than three in five Democrats say they would prefer a nominee other than Biden. And the Post ABC poll shows Joe Biden trailing Donald Trump by 10 points. Then number three, the New York Times. President Biden is underperforming among nonwhite voters in the New York Times Santa College national polls over the last year. And this result marked a — represent a, quote, marked deterioration in Mr. Biden's support among non -Anglo voters. Those are the three big polls of the weekend, and they're all related to Joe Biden's age. So I've asked Generalissimo to assist me in diagnosing the problem here. And so just a yes or no, are you with me, Generalissimo? No. All right, good. Would you let Joe Biden prepare dinner for eight people? No. Would you let Joe Biden do the shopping for a dinner for eight people? No. Would you let Joe Biden make your family's reservations for a week's vacation at Disney World? Oh, hell no. Would you let Joe Biden book the flights for that vacation? No. Would you let Joe Biden drive the youth group van to the beach for Sunday at the beach? Absolutely not. Would you let Joe Biden chaperone the sixth grade astronomy camp overnight trip? Not even with your kids. Would you let Joe Biden invest your 401k? Would you let Joe Biden pick the paint colors for your church or your school remodel? No. Would you let Joe Biden select the menu for your daughter's wedding? No. Would you let Joe Biden lead a group of second graders through the Smithsonian Natural History? Stop, stop. I gotta... No. Just stay in the lane, please. I just want to know. These are just questions. Would you let Joe Biden lead a second grade group through the Smithsonian? Would you let him lead a high school group through the Smithsonian? Would you drop him off in front of an NFL stadium, give him a ticket, and tell him you'll see him in the seats? I don't think so. Would you let him be the president of a state university? Oh, no. Would you let him be the president of a private liberal arts college? No. Would you let him run a large public high school? No. How about a small private high school? How about a junior high school? Nowhere near kids, no. How about an elementary school? Absolutely not. A preschool? Absolutely not. Would you let Joe Biden run a 7 -Eleven? No, he doesn't have the right accent. Would you let Joe Biden run a sporting goods store? No. A multiplex? No. Would you let Joe run the candy and soda counter at the multiplex? It's too confusing, no. Would you let him run a Macy's? A McDonald's? No. A Houston's restaurant? No. Would you let him run an airport? Negative. Would you let him run the parking at the high school football game? No. Would you let him run a high school speech tournament? Too many kids, no. How about a swim meet? No. Would you let Joe Biden run any business with 10 employees? No. Would you let him run a business with 100 employees? No. Would you let him do HR for a business with 10 employees? No. Would you let him run the gift wrap sales fundraiser for your kids school? No. Would you let him run the thrift shop inventory day? No. Would you let him run a car dealership? Negative. Would you let him run a church fundraiser? No. A church service? No. A service station? No. Would you let him run a piano recital for 20 students under the age of 10? How about 10 students under the age of 10? No kids, no. Would you let him announce graduation at MIT? Would you let him announce graduation for any college? Have you heard him? No. Would you let him run an eighth grade graduation? No. Would you let him run the change of command at any duty station for any branch of the armed services anywhere in the Americas or in the worldwide distribution of our defense facilities? Not unless you wanted to create an incident, no. Would you let him drive a truck? Well, he's already claimed it, no. Would you let him drive a car that you're riding in the passenger seat? Not unless I was heavily insured. Would you let him fire a pistol at a range? Oh, hell no. Would you let him fire a rifle at a range? No. A machine gun? No. Bazooka? No. Would you let him get into a tank and fire a tank? I'm seeing a pattern here, no. Would you let him direct the drone strike? No. Would you let him drive a little tiny boat whaler, you know, a 12 -foot whaler? I would let him pilot your dinghy, no. Would you let him drive a criss -craft with an outboard motor? No. Of a yacht, a big yacht? No. Would you let him command the deck of a freighter? A freighter? No. How about a destroyer? Uh, I'm thinking not. Submarine? No. Aircraft carrier? No. All right. Could you imagine Stav with him on deck? What would you let Joe Biden do? Retire. No, but I mean, really, seriously, is there anything you'd let him do to put him in charge of, because this is my first edition of would you let Joe Biden dot, dot, dot? Nothing complicated because he gets confused easy. Nothing with kids because we kind of know about that. No, there's nothing the guy can do. He has shown no knowledge of market economics, free market economics. He has no idea how supply and demand works. No, but I'm just talking about give me something that he can do because we've got to get a retirement hobby for him. A retirement hobby? Checkers. Do you think he could win at checkers ever? It's yeah, he could he could run he could run an ice cream stand. I we I covered that. You were gonna let him run a 7 -Eleven. I don't know. I covered the gift wrap. 7 -Eleven is more complicated than an ice cream stand because gas is involved. But but I asked you about the the gift wrap fundraising. I want every mom in America ice cream. Well, no, every parent driving to school in America right now knows fall is the season for fundraisers. So we got the call from the granddaughter over the weekend. Hey, Nana, which is the fetching Mrs. Hewitt, right? Would you buy gift wrap? And of course, we're probably gonna have enough gift wrap for the rest of the five seasons. Yeah, yeah. Five seasons of gift wrap. Yes. And and now the flash is probably going to come up with candy bar. You know, it's just fundraising season, right? And so it's better than raffle tickets. I hate raffle tickets. Yeah. Gift wrap you can at least put in the closet and it'll be there when when she has to clean out the house. You are what we call in in in the school trade. You are what we call an easy mark. A mark. Yeah. Yes. And and you wouldn't even let Joe button out. For those of you who are new to the audience, we've added affiliates recently. Dwayne is an ex band parent who keeps getting dragged back in. And when he was a band parent, he ran parking at the at the battle of the band. Do you know what I'm doing now? Do you know what I'm doing this this year? What I'm doing? What? I had to stand up along with my wife, stand up a snack bar outside of girls volleyball. All right. Would you let Joe Biden run that? Not in your wildest dreams, because because one money's involved and two girls are nearby. But I mean, OK, then Paul back a year or two. No, you let him direct parking at the Battle of the Bands. Oh, not unless you wanted a wreck.
Senator Bob Menendez Indicted on Bribery
"Democrat New Jersey Senator Bob Menendez is being charged with bribery offenses in a federal indictment out of the Southern District of New York. There will be the unsealing of an indictment later today charging Menendez, the U .S. Senator from New Jersey, and his wife, Nadine, with bribery offenses in connection with their corrupt relationship with three New Jersey businessmen. Now this guy is a powerful, powerful member of the U .S. Senate. Menendez has been around for a long time. NBC News 4 in New York reported earlier in the week that the FBI and the IRS were attempting to determine if Menendez and his wife had taken up to $400 ,000 worth of gold bars from a guy named Fred Dabes, who's a New Jersey developer and a former bank chairman, in a swap for Menendez reaching out to the Justice Department to aid the admitted felon accused of banking crimes. So breaking news, Senator Bob Menendez from New Jersey being charged with federal indictments on bribery.

"At podcast. I would be remiss if I did not thank the crack team that helps put these conversations together each week. Justin Milner is my audio engineer. Atika Valbron is my project manager. Sean Russo is my head of research. Paris Wald is my producer. I'm Barry Rituls. You've been watching Bloomberg Radio. Broadcasting 24 hours a day at bloomberg .com and the Bloomberg Business Act. This is Bloomberg Radio. President Biden says he's been briefed on the situation at the Burning Man Festival in Nevada. He noted Sunday that his administration is in touch with local leaders as extreme flooding has left tens of thousands of people stranded. More rain fell Sunday causing muddy campgrounds and road closures in Nevada's Black Rock Desert. Attendees were first told Friday to shelter in place and conserve food and water. At least one person has died. The CEO of Burning Man told NBC News that organizers don't see it as an evacuation situation and orderly exit is planned for today. Republican presidential candidate Nikki Haley said she would vote for former President Trump if he's the nominee but she doesn't expect it to happen. More from Mark Mayfield. Speaking on CBS Face the Nation the former UN Ambassador and South Carolina Governor said Americans won't vote for Trump if he's convicted. She defended raising her hand at the August 23rd debate when asked if she would support Trump as the nominee. Haley said she signed the RNC pledge required to participate in the debate and that she would honor that pledge. I'm Mark Mayfield. President Biden is set to be in Philadelphia today. Trey Thomas reports. The White House says the president plans to attend the AFL -CIO Philadelphia Council's tri -state Labor Day Parade. The event begins at 9.
"nbc news" Discussed on Digiday Podcast
"There's a snap, and there's a transition, so we use this on MS with Trump talking about like, hey, if you played the 5th, you're guilty, snapping, he recently pled the 5th, that video has millions of views. So it's like, it fits, there's a transition. It's native. It works. That's when we've seen return on it, where we haven't seen return is where we're trying to squeeze something in that doesn't quite work. Yeah, we can't try too hard. I think that's always been the basis of our strategy has been to approach the platform very natively. It has to feel like it fits. It can't feel like we're trying too hard. And I think from a brand like NBC News, in that way, it can be a little bit different from stay tuned as the kind of younger, more Gen Z brand. It feels more natural coming from that brand than it does NBC News. If you see NBC News trying to be down with the kids, it just kind of feels a little bit off. And we're not trying to fool anyone into following us. What you see is what you get. You're going to get real legitimate news. You're going to get verified information. But then on a brand like stay tuned, there's a little bit more leeway. On MSNBC too, because it's a little bit more personality based. Analysis based. So we try to approach the different brands differently too when it comes to those trends and sounds and things like that. That's probably a good note to not especially because it's more long you all have a lot of work to do as we were just being covered throughout this conversation. So Stephanie Devin, thanks so much for coming on the show. I really enjoyed speaking with both of you. Thanks so much, Dan. Thanks for having us. And thank you for listening to the digital podcast. Please don't forget to share this episode with someone who you think would enjoy it. You can even rate us on Apple podcasts if you like, and we'll be back next week with another episode.
"nbc news" Discussed on Digiday Podcast
"That for a second? It's easy on those viral videos where, you know, you have a moose kicking a woman at the head and that's always going to be interesting and engaging. It's a little bit different when you have that school board video. So it kind of does come back to that loop idea where we're going to put that most interesting piece of the video first, where the most interesting piece of the quote first, and we might loop back. So you kind of might watch it twice. But we don't have a specific framework for how we do it. It's amazing how our teams have kind of just like latched onto the idea and how much they use it now. But I think it really comes back to just using the most interesting piece first. And then following up with the context that's needed. And sometimes what my team does is another trick is because you have such a limited time to get people's attention, a lot of what my team does is commentary on the thing that people may already be familiar with. So we start with context that you may already know, right? So the big thing on TikTok as well is like stitch. And taking someone else's video and then adding your context or something to it. So that is another thing that we do use when we're doing sort of like explainers or debunking things is like starting with that piece of information that you are familiar with. And then reacting to it. So I think a great example of this on sort of the MS side that we did somewhat recently is that there was this viral newsmax clip going around that this guy saying that he'd been to the American girl doll store and could not find any white dolls in the entire store for his for his white daughter. And Manny was actually in the office that day and he's like, that's literally downstairs. I should go downstairs and see if this doll is there. So stitching that initial like, okay, we've seen this guy talking about this thing and then stitching it with like, all right, we're gonna actually go and try to see if we could find the white. Of course there were plenty of white dolls. In the store, but we could have started that video with Manny just any at the American doll store being like, hey, you may be familiar with this newsmax video, and then play it and then go back to him, but that's not native to the platform. The platform is like, okay, you see this thing, and then you add context to it. So starting with the thing that we're going to add context to, rather than starting with our video and going to the context, then coming back to us. Something we do there too is kind of clue the audience into what's about to come. So on those stitch videos will often put the phrase stitch incoming so that the audience knows that I might have seen this video already floating around the Internet, but we have something to add to it. So we're kind of cluing them in on keep watching. So that's kind of a thing we do sometimes. Right, that makes a lot of sense. And that's something where Devon, as you mentioned, this is stitching native to the platform. But it's also the kind of thing where you can do it within the video, you don't have to do it within the platform so that it can be applied to a YouTube short or an Instagram real. But there's been, I mean, all the talk and all the creator discords and the group chats and everything over the past couple of years has been, okay, is there a boost to videos if you use TikTok's native tools? Is there a boost to videos if they're shot natively within TikTok? And this also applies to YouTube shorts and Instagram reels. How much are you guys doing within the platforms themselves when it comes to either shooting or editing videos? And how much of it is just done? I think you're all premier shop. How much is done in the editing software? And so then the same video can go up into all the different places and you're not doing anything in platform. Yeah. So it's funny you said that, right? Because when I started, it means that this was a conversation that we were constantly having because we would have conversations with TikTok and I would say you have to do like the more stuff you do within the app, the better it's going to perform. But we were thinking in terms of scale, where if we're going to be hiring producers and putting out videos quickly, how are we going to be editing all of these videos within the app, which, you know, we're doing stuff that's a bit more complex. So we were like, we just kind of made the decision, we're just going to kind of ignore this advice to some degree. And try to mimic what it looks like in TikTok in premiere. So for the most part, well, all of our videos at this point are hitting premiere at some point. Some instances will add additional elements to the video within the app. But for the most part, we're editing everything within premiere and the style it feels native to TikTok. And a few months after we had that initial meeting with TikTok, we just sort of re ask the question, not even sort of referencing that we had asked them it before. And they were like, oh yeah, it doesn't matter where you sort of edit your video. You could do it in app, you could do it in premiere as long as it looks native, like we're able to read the text in a video. And sort of apply the same things that we would if you were to type the text within the app. That being said, we still sort of experiment with it, especially with some text on screen stuff. We use the talk to text feature a lot, which you have to do with any app. But I will, I don't think we have any hard numbers to say like, hey, if you do this thing with any app, it's going to perform better than something that we're editing it in premiere. Yeah, we've tried to track it. We've tried to see if there's any difference. And we just haven't noticed any, really. Okay. And what about things like the trending effects? Right now, as we're talking, I think the big one on TikTok is that teenage filter, or you get to see yourself as you look like a teenager. I try to complete bullshit. I didn't look like. But okay. But is that something where when there are these trending effects on TikTok, do you all try to incorporate that at all? Not as much on the news account. Yeah. And I would say that's another thing that we've sort of in the beginning with stay tuned. We really leaned heavily into that. And we just didn't like, we felt like we were sort of forcing it to some degree, right? Where it's a hard thing to try to be like, what is the news of the day and then how does that play into this currently trending random thing on TikTok, right? It's like, that doesn't feel native either, right? It feels like, you know, like, hey, kids, I can talk TikTok too. It's like just post the video. You don't need to fit it into this meme. That being said, there are times when there's a meme, and then we have a news video and we're like, oh, these two things work perfectly together. So for example, there were two recent examples on MS that we did this with. One more recently was there's that Stranger Things. I forget that the kid's name was it's not will. He's the other one. It's been a while since I've watched it. He snaps, right? So there's like something in the beginning,

"In addition to the strong performance aspect, CTV also provides marketers with ways to leverage different kinds of audience data and create more targeted campaigns than what was previously possible with linear TV. When you set up a campaign on mountain or another performed TV platform, you're able to use either first party audiences if you have audiences that you're using on other channels, you can ingest those into set up a campaign. You can leverage third party audiences that we're using through Oracle and Tapping into a number of those, whether it's soccer fans or it's sneakerheads or sneaker fans and leverage those third party audiences to create a targeted campaign. That way. And then the third way is through via CRM. So we can ingest your your company's CRM and email database in a hash environment from a privacy standpoint. So we will match your email addresses to our household, your household IPs that are associated with your connected TV device, and we can set up a campaign that way. As retailers gain access to more specific targeting and a high performance channel, they're realizing CTV is also agile. We try to encourage our customers to think about it as connected TV and performance TV as a living breathing medium that is highly nimble and can adjust to the moments that matter to you in the moments that matter to your customers. Let's take the holiday season, right? You know, even up to the last minute then we could pivot our messaging to target last minute shoppers with gift card messaging as well to be able to drive some of those last known shoppers that might not be able to make an in store, but still want to get a gift for a special someone in their family. And so I guess you think about connected TV as a nimble medium that can react to the moments that matter to you and moments that matter to your customers with creative, but similarly and optimizing against the budgets and new customers that are a part of your audiences and new geos that you might want to segment as well. It's something that can be nimble and can change. It can react so that you can meet your customers where they are and can engage with them accordingly. You've been listening to all of our embry. Director of product innovation at mountain. Our sponsor on this episode. And now back to the digit day podcast. 9 years ago, I was at some YouTube thing that sounds super specific. But I remember the YouTube execs. I think it was for a brand and they were trying to get brands to have their own YouTube channels and all that. And I got to sit it on it. And they talked about this strategy. It was like three H's. Hygiene hub and hero. I don't remember what hub referred to, but hero is basically like the big splashy videos that you can't do day in, day out, but those are going to be like the broad audience driving videos. And then hygiene was like the stuff you can be getting up daily or this is YouTube more likely weekly or a couple times a week and to have something for your audience so you're constantly in the mix. And it sounds like your team is on that hero end of things where harder to have those hard and fast rules of how many to get out. Stephanie, it sounds like your team is kind of like the plays that hygiene roll. And so is there for your team more of volume goal in terms of how many videos to be posting daily to the TikTok accounts. Yeah, there's not as much of an exact volume goal. I mean, I think we aim to generally put out probably between three to 5 videos per day, minimum on TikTok alone. But it mostly depends on what the news cycle looks like that day. You know, if it's a busy news day, we might get more than 5. But if it's really slow, we might kind of really pine for those three videos that might work. But it really depends on the time. I mean, I'm thinking about it now because we are about exactly a year from the war in Ukraine beginning. And that was really when we saw the beginning of our massive growth on TikTok. So at that time, we were posting probably upwards of ten videos a day. And it was a lot of content, but it was being heavily consumed by our audience. There was such a huge appetite for content coming out of Ukraine on the ground. We were lucky to have correspondence there to have reporters there who were able to send stuff back. We're lucky to work at a place with tons of resources too. So our social news gathering team was actively working to clear video from the ground to get UGC and verify it. And as that was happening, we were taking those pieces of content, turning them very quickly, adding the proper context and putting them on TikTok. And it was the first war to break out in the age of modern social media. So there was just a huge appetite that we saw from our audience for content around that storyline and we really took it all the way home. So at that point, we were probably producing ten to 15 videos a day and they were seeing millions, tens of millions of views, a lot of the time. So I would say, you know, during those kind of huge news moments, we're going to take as much as we can get. During the day to today experience, it's a little bit more like three to 5 if we can. But when all hands are on deck, we'll really turn them out. Got it. And before we all got started, Ben art producer was mentioning this newsletter he reads where I think it was a piece talking about news publishers and on TikTok. It really news audiences on TikTok. Because I think what he was mentioning about the piece is there can be a lot of people on TikTok who are just like, oh, news publishers aren't covering. I think the example he used was the train crash in Ohio. Why is no one talking about this? I saw it. Covered on the NBC News TikTok airhead. So you were all on there, but it kind of gets at this idea of how to it's not specific to TikTok, but news outlets serve in the audience or cover in the news that the audience expects to see. But I imagine TikTok throws something of a curveball into the conversation because there is a timeliness to the platform, but that algorithm doesn't always reward timeliness. Sometimes videos can pop immediately and if you get it on a trend early, that really helps. Sometimes those trends don't pop until weeks sometimes after corn kit, I mean, I remember seeing that first video, the original video weeks before the remix, and then everything blew up there. So for your team with breaking news or not even like big breaking news, Warren, Ukraine a year ago, but mid level breaking news. How do you determine, is this something we need to cover that our audience is going to expect to cover because I imagine there are also times where our audience may not be aware of this, but that's our role as NBC News to make them aware. Yeah, I think we feel a lot of that responsibility. A lot of the content we do is similar to what other news publishers are doing. I think the difference in what and how we try to approach it is that we want to give it the proper context. We want to take a beat and make sure that we are sharing content that it's yes, they're quick turns, but we're really putting thought into how we're presenting them and making sure that our audience can see us as okay. This is an authority figure telling us what is happening in the world. And we want to make sure that the content that we're putting out doesn't leave any questions. For the viewer. So there is certainly a lot of pressure to be fast and get stuff out as soon as it airs as it's live. But from my perspective, just kind of taking a beat and recognizing how can we put our own spin on this to make it as consumable for the audience as possible as digestible as possible. It's worth taking that extra second. And I think that's what our team is, our teams together are so great at doing is really taking that extra time to make content worth viewing. And that's why our engagement

"When we're doing similar clips across multiple accounts, we're using those clips that are probably going to go viral no matter where you put them. So the most video is a good example of this. No matter who posts that clip, it's probably going to get a significant number of views. But the different types of content that we're doing across these other accounts feels probably a little bit more native to the respective brands. And the way that we're trying to kind of pivot those viral news clips based on the account is essentially so that if you see it twice, you might not recognize it as the same flip twice. And you might watch it from both of our various accounts that we own. More than once. Like Devin was saying earlier. Because there is so much news on a daily basis. I don't know if there is a hard and fast, any hard and fast rules to really any of this. At this point, but is it something where, okay, for every most video we need to have three kind of hard news videos or for every hard news video we need three moose videos. I wouldn't say we are doing exactly that, but there is some of that thought process behind our strategy. It's also as Devin said before it has to do with our bandwidth too. You know, those kind of quick turn clips are quicker and faster to get out there. And that can sometimes be what we lean on a little bit more because that'll help our post volume. The stuff that Devin's team is creating might take a little bit longer to produce. It might take a few days of working with a reporter or a correspondent to get something off the ground. So it's a little bit more based on how much we're able to produce in a day versus, you know, we need three of these kind of viral type clips in order to help another one. So that does help. And I think, you know, a rising tide lifts all ships and in some ways having those viral clips, I think, helps the overall health of the accounts. And then Devin, for those videos, your team is doing where you mentioned sometimes these feature E type videos can be done in three hours. Stephanie just alluded to. Sometimes it can be days. Is there a general process that you have in terms of how long it takes to go from coming up with the idea, imagine there's probably a script that gets written either shooting or finding the clips to put together the editing process, all that. I'm not going to give you the satisfying answer, which is just like it varies because it really does, right? It's like some stuff that is explaining, we turn around really quick. You know, it depends on who we're working with sometimes. So my team works a lot with the print side on the new side. There are people who we work with all the time who are a bit quicker. It depends on their schedules and when they can get stuff back to us on an MSI, we work with people who are so fast where we'll be like, hey, we have an idea for this thing. They'll shoot us over a video in 15, 20 minutes, you know, we're subtitling it, adding graphics to it and getting it up and hour and hour and a half. You know, like that many video, I think, published, maybe 30 minutes after, Sarah, I'll give you Sanders, gave her her speech. So it all varies, you know? And then it depends sometimes our team also does some original reporting, one of the producers for my team, Alec. Did this great video on the mar Hamlin conspiracy theory and so that was something that he spent a couple days on looking into and finding examples of and sort of thinking through how he's going to present it. So it varies from video to video, you know, it's like we treat how long things should take similar to how long video should be. It's like it should take as long as it needs to take and it should be as long as it needs to be. Like we don't have hard and fast rules in terms of like, you know, TikTok needs to be produced in two days. You know, like there's things that if we think it's worth the investment, we'll spend longer on. And then Steph said, it's like, oh, we're gonna spend maybe three days working on a story. You know, Alec will also be producing some quicker hits. During that time as well. So that we can keep our kids up too. Got it. Yeah, because for the videos that your teams putting together, is there a number of how many of those you aim to get out each week? Each day is a bit different depending on the news cycle, but in terms of writing original scripts, with context, a producer and a day, if they're sort of like all the information is kind of there for you and you're just sort of piecing it together. They can do to three of those scripts in a day from start to finish. Pitching it, producing, editing it. And getting it up. So really just short of the pen is on how much more research needs to be done, how much coordination needs to be done if we're working with the print side, or is this a story that we already have? All the pieces for, but yeah, if we have all the pieces, they're pretty quick at sort of piecing stuff together and getting it out. Okay. So it's not like each week your team has to have a minimum of 6 videos or every person on your team has to have two videos that they get. No, we really, and this was a big discussion when me and Steph first building these teams. We were looking at our competitors and seeing what they were doing day to day. And trying to figure out, how can we win in this game? And just looking at our competitors like the thing that we noticed immediately is a lot of them post a lot of times during the day. And what we were saying was most of those videos weren't performing. You know, there was like a slim number of those videos that were actually hitting, and as we were starting to build a team, you know, we were building these teams from scratch. So we didn't have a large team. So we're like, we can't even, even if we wanted to play that volume game, we didn't think it was the right way to win on a platform, but even if we wanted to play pure volume game, we weren't going to win at that. So we were like, we should focus on quality over quantity. So that has really been our big focus, right? It's like not necessarily putting out the most videos. But putting out videos that are going to perform the best. You know, like a big sort of metric we always look at is like, what are our interactions per post? Versus pure volume play. So that's really, you know, as producers and as managers, we definitely have a sort of an understanding of generally what output looks like. But we don't have straight like, hey, you have to put out 6 videos for the week because, like I said, a producer may be working on a story that takes three days. And that story, we may believe that story is important between how many views is going to get. And internally, we have sort of goals as well, right? In terms of like, this is important for the brand. This is important reporting. And even if it's not going to get, you know, ten, 20 million views, we feel like it's important for us to be producing this video. But there are no hard and fast. Everybody

"It's a great collaborative effort. Stephanie, your team sounds like kind of what we think of at digitize our daily news coverage and then we have, I think, every news organization that has the features to, where it's like the longer leads stuff, Devin, it sounds like your team is kind of the TikTok version of the features team. Which is so funny because it's like features, but sometimes features can take like three hours, you know? It's like but yeah, that is a good way to think about it is that my side is more so to feature a side. Although, you know, stuff mentioned earlier too. It's weird, you know, when we try to explain our teams to outside people because like, I don't know, to us day to day, it feels like we're just one giant team. It's like, yeah, they org says like this person reports that this person, but because we are talking so often in the channel, people on my team are talking directly with Steph's reports as well. So it is shocking how smooth the process is considering there's so many people from different parts of the orc working together. Right. And I imagine sometimes it can be really easy to figure out what should get covered. We've already talked about the State of the Union. But then there are things where it's like, oh, is this where it's not so obvious that it's a worthwhile news story or a new story that would necessarily pop, but then it's like, well, this woman Alaska got run over by a moose. That's something that people end up being interested in. How was that? How is it decided? Oh, this is something we need to cover on the TikTok. It's really about engaging, right? For the audience, right? And you know, some stuff is really sort of like low hanging fruit. Everyone has their low hanging fruit, you know, a woman gets run over by a moose. We have that great video. We have an interview with the woman. Yeah, we're going to cut that. And then there's some stuff that we got to work a little bit harder to make it engaging for the audience, right? Where we do some great reporting, NBC, and they're important stories that don't have a visual sort of woman getting ran over by a moose, so what is our hook into that story? To get people interested, I think from all everything that we're covering, we're always thinking about the audience and how they're going to receive it. We don't approach it as weird and news. We should, you know, you should just trust us to tell you what's important because on TikTok, that just does not work. If you're not trying to meet the audience where there are and sort of engage with them in conversations in a way that feel native to the platform, they're just not going to watch it. Even in many cases, when we do do what we think internally is really engaging hooks, the audience doesn't want it, right? So for us, it's constantly in a conversation about are we making sure that this story is framed in a way or presenting the story in a way that is going to be in most engaging to the audience. And for that most video. So there are multiple NBC News TikTok accounts. There's like the main NBC News account and then stay tuned as an account. The most video was posted to both stay tuned and the NBC News accounts. But there are slight differences with them on the stay tuned one. It was the news clip the user generated clip of the woman getting run over by moose, but there was also the news clip of that woman who got run over, being interviewed. And then on NBC News, it was just the woman who shot the original video of the other woman getting run over and you can hear her kind of narrating what's going on, asking the woman if it's okay. And it felt more like as if that woman had just uploaded it to her own personal TikTok account. What was the creative decision in behind having the two different types of videos? And which goes up on which account? It's a good question. We will sometimes post similar videos across both accounts, but in a little bit of a different way to try to attract the different audiences. So for stay tuned, you know, the TikTok audience is very young, but on stay tuned it tends to be even younger. On NBC News, you know, I think from the audience's perspective, we are kind of what's known as the main news brand, right? I think there's a little bit of a disconnect between what the audience sees as NBC News and stay tuned. And I think in some cases, they don't even necessarily see them as connected, even though it's an NBC property. So what we post on NBC News, I think we'll continue to be mostly that straight news content, whereas stay tuned might have a little bit of a lighter as your spin on it. It might be something that would attract a little bit of a more Internet native audience, even though people on TikTok in general are Internet native. But the way we approach both accounts does differ in a lot of ways because of the audiences across all of the social platforms for those two brands. That's really interesting because I would have thought then the clip where the woman's being interviewed on the news talking about the attack would have then gone on to the NBC News TikTok account because it felt more like a newsy video whereas the other one where it's just like a slightly edited version of the woman who the phone clip would have gone on the stay tuned, but so is it that you saw like, oh, with this interview with a woman being like, I thought it was like a car or something that got me out of not a moose, that's what made it more like less traditional straight news. A lot of what we're posting to the NBC News account would be straight UGC two. And we can talk a little bit more about that. You know, Devin, I want to give you space for what you were about to say. No, yeah, I was going to say exactly kind of what stuff said, like a lot of times on the news account. It is sort of like, here's the clip with a bit of context. And you know, like it's most examples, very unique one. I think how we try to approach it too is like with everything that we're posting, right? It's like a data point, right? So we try to, if we're going to post the same video to both news and stay tuned, we want to make slight tweaks so that we're not posting exact same thing so that, you know, we may get a return on, oh, actually this video performed better here in a way that we framed it. And this video didn't perform as well. And that's data that we have the next go around. We try not to cannibalize ourselves by posting the exact same clip. And I would say it's rare that we even do kind of the same story in this way, like the most video. Some videos are so good that you're like, we just got to put it everywhere like the video. But most of the time, we'll look at a clip and then sort of decide. Does this make more sense as a news video or a stay tuned video? Sometimes it's, you know, bandwidth, you know? It's like, okay, we have sort of like four or 5 videos going out of news right now. Stay tuned, actually need something to cover, maybe we'll take the story and sort of make it work for stay tuned as well. Got it. And is there an element to this so NBC News has 4 million followers on its TikTok account, stay tuned has 1.1 million. Imagine there's some overlap there, but obviously pretty significant difference in the terms of the overall fall or accounts. Are you at all having to think, oh, how do we make sure these are different in case of a person sees both of these videos pop up. I don't even know to what extent you would be able to gauge what the overlap is among audiences let alone among individual exposures to a given video, but is that something at all you have to be thinking about? I think a bit, I think between the various accounts that we have, we have NBC News, stay tuned, MSNBC, Today Show has an account. These are all under the news group. And a lot of the time, mostly

"Hello and welcome to the digiday podcast, I'm Kayleigh barber media editor digiday. Peterson, senior media at our digital. Tim, you had this week's interview and your guests were Devin Joseph, the executive producer of original social video at NBC News, as well as Stephanie scorn, the director of social platforms at NBC News. I'm curious, why did you want to have them on the episode this week? Yeah, I'd been wanting to do a deep dive episode on TikTok. Basically, what is it actually like day to day to operate a TikTok presence as a publisher. And so Devin, someone a talk to a couple times last year, spent election night at NBC News and was able to see his team in action. And so I wanted to talk with him and Stephanie just about how NBC News puts together its TikTok post because they also NBC News has multiple TikTok accounts and there's some differences across the accounts and there's also differences in terms of the types of videos that NBC News is putting up on TikTok. So it just felt like a really good opportunity to really dig in on all things TikTok. Got it. And so I know TikTok can be interesting platform for sharing news, especially breaking news. I'm curious how they really approach their operations for a TikTok news presence. Yep. Yeah, so effectively to main teams working on the TikTok accounts. The one led by Stephanie is more of the breaking news kind of daily coverage. So news videos that go up on the site and the news videos are user generated stuff with some text or some voice-over. And then Devin's team does more like original videos. And so at one point in the conversation, we kind of talk about how Stephanie's team is putting together kind of like the daily coverage or the daily news coverage and Devin's team has kind of doing the TikTok equivalent of like features for TikTok, which is kind of funny to say about 62nd or less short form videos, but that's where we're at in 2023. Got it. Awesome. Well, I'll let you guys get into it. It sounds like an interesting episode. Absolutely. Thanks, Tim. Devin Joseph, Stephanie srivani. Thanks for joining us on the digitally podcast. Yeah, thanks for having us. Excited to be here. I wanted to have you both on because I've been wanting to do an episode that's kind of like a deep dive into what a TikTok news operation is like at this point, there's good number of news outlets that are on TikTok. NBC News is pretty early to TikTok. I think you all, you kind of set up the TikTok team formally, I think, in December 2021, if I'm not mistaken, and then obviously it's been a big year since then with the war and Ukraine, and then everything else that's been going on domestically as well. And so I think where I want to start since we have you both on the show is kind of like talking about your individual roles because I think that'll help to kind of set the foundation for what the NBC News TikTok operation looks like. So Stephanie, I'll start with you. Can you kind of describe what your day to today is? Yeah, it's totally. So I'm the director of social, so I oversee distribution across all of our social platforms from TikTok to Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter, so my day to today is overseeing a team of about 9 people who handle news distribution across all of those platforms. But the reason that Devin and I kind of partner together is because my team is already doing a lot of that quick turn video for other platforms. So we're also doing it for TikTok as well. So I have a producer on my team who is actively looking through news content, looking at the video that we might already be turning for Twitter and then also using it for TikTok, editing it, captioning it. And making sure that it feels native to the platform and to all of the platforms that we're posting to. Got it. So Devin, does that mean you then come in and your team and kind of put the tiktoks by some things in addition to doing more like TikTok specific stuff? So gab on Steph's team does cut stuff herself as well. She just tends to do more of the faster Biden speech. What are the three best or two best moments that we're polling? My team will more show you. So what is the explainer from that speech? If there is one, what is the larger takeaways that aren't sort of like the immediate turnaround videos? Got it. Okay, so there are two State of the Union related tiktoks that I remember seeing. One was kind of like the State of the Union in 90 seconds. The other was the folks video where it's just all the different times Biden said folks. So those two videos who are the teams that handled each of those. Gab on my team handled both of those videos. They were the folks video is a fun one. We use that across the board all over social because we just loved it so much. But so it's kind of like the news will start with my team and then that step forward that deeper dive will come from Devin's team. So it's kind of a nice split between our teams because we can kind of do it all in some way. So we're live clipping moments as they happen and then Devin's team might come in and do the explainer or take it, push the story forward in some way. Got it. Okay. And then for example the United States and union we worked with Mehdi from MSNBC, he did a response to Sarah Huckabee Sanders response. So, you know, it wasn't the Biden speech. It was the takeaway from the takeaway about the speech. Stuff you had mentioned, you have a 9 person team, Devin. I saw your team in person back in November when I came by. Yes. On election night, but early November, which in this realm could be years ago, what's the size of the team at this point? So now, focused on TikTok, there are now 5 people on my team focused on TikTok. To me, that would make 6. And then we have four producers who are focused on YouTube as well. And then having the two teams seems really helpful, but also seems like it would require a lot of communication. Is everything just being done by slack or what's the process in figuring out who's doing what how to collaborate, how to kind of when there are times where it's better to stay in your own lane. Yeah, we're super lucky. Our teams work extremely well together. We have a slack channel where everyone's kind of popping in, mentioning what they're seeing, you know, producers will call out if they're going to clip something. If we have something that, you know, even if it's a quick turn, maybe we need Devin's team to help us out on getting it up more quickly, so someone from his team might lend a hand. So everyone works very, very closely together. It's very collaborative. But there's a lot of conversation in that channel as well, kind of talking about, you know, what's the next step in this story? I mean, we did the story about the New York City restaurant where the pride flag was lit on fire over the weekend. Devon dropped in today that the woman was just arrested. So we'll do that next step in the story. And if we need to go further than that, Devin's team will probably grab that too. So there's lots of conversation happening in a slack channel where we're kind of just calling out what we're working on, calling out if anyone on our team sees something trending, that they think, you know, we should jump on any storylines that maybe there's a lot of conversation happening in that channel where our teams can collaborate and can work together on storylines that are happening and call out what we're seeing across social across Twitter across TikTok, our teams are pretty young, which is great because they're very native to the platform. So they're able to really call out with their seeing in there for you pages. And you know, the way the platform works is not everyone's going to see the same thing. So it's really nice to be able to get everyone's view on what they're seeing come up for them. Different types of news is making it to their feeds that day. So

"Today and schedule your free in home estimate. Ten, ten now on WTO with a new legal battle over immigration policy brewing tonight, NBC News reports the Biden administration is finalizing this rule to block migrants and that some immigration rights groups are planning to sue the administration to stop it. Those groups compare the policy to a Trump era restriction NBC News Homeland Security correspondent Julia ainsley, breaking this news tonight and joining us with more about the exclusive. This will be a proposal, which will basically announce it within 90 days the Biden administration wants to severely restrict the asylum on the southern border. What it would do is would make any migrant that crosses the border ineligible to claim asylum if they've already passed through a country where they could claim it first. That could be a Central American who crossed through Mexico. They did not claim asylum or try to then asylum in Mexico. There would be an eligible the southern border. Now, it's something that sounds very similar to something that was started under the Trump administration, but his senior adviser Stephen Miller, known to be a real hardliner on immigration. So it's surprising the Biden administration would consider it. And it certainly is not surprising that a lot of these immigrant rights groups would push back and want to sue just like they did under the Trump administration. What the Biden administration is saying is that it's different because they allow for more Over this policy, we also have Republican states suing the Biden administration over a number of policies that Republicans have deemed way too lenient at the border. It's really a tough place to be in for any administration when trying to do something at the border. What would you see as a good first step to solving the immigration riddle? Now it seems the answer would be more immigration judges, just to speed up the process so that people who qualify for protection get those quickly and people who don't qualify are able to see the exit to be deported or expedited removal, basically to speed up the process. Easier said than done, you need a lot more funding and it's hard to get those immigration judges quickly.

"Me in West Virginia about the price of gas. The price of everything they buy, including their groceries. How it's affecting them. Yes, that is Senator Joe Manchin, who we were talking about earlier. He's already been clear is gonna be a no vote on the Democrats. Human Fund package money for people. George Cassandra Kiss Stances Favorite policy in Washington. So anyway, yeah, Lot of it does come back to inflation. And this is something that Rory O Neill is taking a look at. Of course w i d zone. It was a national correspondent for NBC News radio as well. All right, Rory So inflation news. Not good. We already know that And we had kept hearing transitory from the Federal Reserve Trends story earlier this year. Doesn't sound like so transitory anymore, I guess not based on the Kroger saying, What do you find here? Well, yes. So we're going to get the news CPI number. The consumer price index number comes out tomorrow and then we'll get the retail sales number on Thursday. Both those figures will be important ahead of the meeting by the Federal Reserve next week. It's looking like 5. 5.5% is where this is going to settle down somewhere, and they're similar to what it was for the month of July, But you know it As you go down the supermarket aisle, you know that meat prices are up significantly poultry. Port, beef and beef is up 14% in recent months, and it's really hitting consumers in the pocket is Senator Manchin was saying Also, Senator Scott has been talking about this a lot now. Whether or not you can blame Divide administration. That's fiscal policy. You know a lot of this, uh, infrastructure in the 5.5 trillion that's not spent that hasn't been approved. That's really not factored into this. And Whether or not this is instead more covid supply chain transitory like you talked about even the Fed isn't so sure. Yeah, The Fed has not been sure they've been wrong. Up to this point in the year was saying, and it's temporary. It's going to go away well, and it hasn't worked out that way, which makes more people even more concerned that Maybe we have a bigger issue. And so you know, Rory, When you have this report from Craig, you're talking about what's happened in the grocery store. And any time you go anywhere you go to hardware store together. Grocery store you pretty much just go online anymore, and even If you find decent prices, you're probably not finding the sales you used to. Kroger is now saying that they're going to end up raising prices substantially. And while that's not our prominent grocer here in South Florida, by any means it is for much of the country. Well, yeah and Kroger, saying prices will probably go up 2 to 3% on most products before the end of the year, and it doesn't sound like much, but it certainly does add up when you're trying to put that budget together and again. Whether or not this is the supply chain issue or a result of economic policy is still to be debated with the Fed chair was saying, Hey, look, we saw those Used car prices spike, but now they're coming back then we're starting to see some stability in the car business. Uh, that's little consultation for folks, though, paying $5.5 for a gallon of milk at these days, and you know, and even then they take a lot of those. It always seems like they picked the oddest products right to put in that consumer price inflation like they don't put gasoline in there and put milk in there, and you're like, Well, those are the two things I buy. Most funny how that works. And Rory. You make some good points about economic theory relative to economic fact, there is economic factor attached to what's happened with so much of the spending since the start of the pandemic on March 15th of 2020 the day that things really started to hit the fan in this country, with the pandemic and stuff started to get real. The U. S. Dollar index, which is what the dollar's value around the world and whatever commodity in the world is traded on no matter where The commodity is bought and sold $102.82 the value of the U. S dollar today, $92.70 U. S dollar is worth right at 10% less than it was at the start of the pandemic, and as we have continued to spend more that's debt. And it creates more digitized money. It drives down the value of the dollar in our park pocket and without any supply and demand changes that alone negatively impacts inflation. And the Federal Reserve can take their transitory. Go stick it because what they've actually been doing is sticking us with higher prices. Rory, right, and we get the benefit of very low interest rates are on the other side of that equation. You got it. That's driving demand. How right and this is How the Fed, though, is trying to respond. You know, it's funny. Powell was also saying. Because of the time frame of the pandemic is so long. We're missing the first half of the numbers now. You brought up march of last year when the pandemic started, or was it 1920. It feels like 19 anymore, But But, yeah, so he's saying, you know, we saw airline and hotel room prices dropped significantly and they're also in the mix, but now they're coming back. But because it's been over a year, it's tougher to see. You know the before and after shots and some of these numbers, So you do have to sort of take now in 18 months to 24 month view on some of these things, but your point of where the dollar was back in March of last year is accurate and it has. It's been a pretty good couple of weeks for the dollar, but it's clearly has an offset what's happened over the past 18 months. Great reporting, as always. Rory O Neill at radio Rory on Twitter. Appreciate it, Rory. Thanks, Brian. Dive into top three.

Michael beschloss in this new program raises a question substantively. That has been taboo for a very long time. Just did the united states among other things rush into war after nine eleven a war that as we now know would take us twenty years to extricate ourselves from joining us now is nbc. News presidential historian. Michael beschloss. who. I'm very pleased to say Is the host of a new show called fireside history with michael beschloss it premiered tonight streaming on peacock. You can catch it this weekend on the choice ramesh. Nbc on peacock. Michael congratulations on starting this series. What a powerful way to do it. And what it provocative way to start. Thank you rachel. Love seeing you and thank you so much for the kind word. I'm trying to learn a little bit from the way you do it. On this program. I condemn backdrop. All i can do is try you are. You are very kind. Don't do anything. That seems like what i do because you do a better. Don't don't let me let me ask you about the core question that you are getting here getting here. What do you think we should understand. What does a close inspection of that. Narrow window of time between september eleventh two thousand and one in october seventh two thousand and one when we invaded afghanistan. What do you feel like. We should remember and know and learn as a country from looking at that short window of time. Will you wrote a wonderful book called drift which i studied very much and you know what it said was among other things. I don't want to tell you about your own book in the audience who haven't read it should and what it says that we're a society that is prone to rush into war and i think that may have happened in two thousand one. Not that we shouldn't have retaliated against afghanistan for harboring al-qaeda not that we shouldn't have tried to wipe out the terrorist threat but this turned into a war that was two decades trillions of dollars of american money. That could have been spat on schools and hospitals and gets. It's what eisenhower once called a theft from people when you spend not on defense when it could be better spent elsewhere and trying to build a greek democracy in afghanistan. That was never going to happen. And what you say in your book. And i totally agree with this. Is that when you have a war. That americans do not understand. They don't support in never works out at the end. We have two decades that accomplish certain things but there was mission creep that went way beyond what president bush talked about the healing. And that i mean i. It's like i don't remember living through the george w bush years and they don't and i've even forgotten my own and others critiques of him in the way that he approached politics even before the terrorist attacks but to hear him. Just repeatedly talk about how we're gonna win. This will be over that we will. They may have started but we will finish it and it will be done to see the contrast between that certainty and that black and white light switch kind of approach that he was talking about taking And what we lived through for these twenty cents and what. We're just extricating ourselves from now. It's it's revelatory. Know michael the other thing that i feel like i was struck. A new by In watching the way you put this footage together is all all that you were able to show about how united the country was how united washington was after the terrorist. Attacks of nine eleven. You've got tape of hundreds of members of congress democrat and republican together singing. God bless america on the capitol steps. The three minute long bipartisan standing ovation. President bush got when he appeared before congress a week after the attacks. I mean president. Bush who'd only become president because of the contested supreme court decision after an incredibly hard fought election. Not that long before. How much does we changed on those lines. If god forbid was another major attack on the united states would we see these kind of saints. No i think we would win. I don't think we would. And this is the problem because twenty years ago. You know if you and i were talking we would have said. Maybe there's some divisions on this country in this country but if there were a hostile attack on our territory kill thousands of people. Americans would unite against it and rise up together. That was two thousand one. It wouldn't happen now because we so divided a because of a lot of things that happened last twenty years. The amazing thing within a month of nine eleven allegory. You were just talking about that. Contested election of two thousand. Many people around gore felt that the election had been stolen from him by the supreme court. I think he was not exactly exempt from such feelings himself yet. In the wake of nine eleven al gore gets up and says these are his words. George bush is my president and i support. That would be impossible to see nowadays. Nbc news presidential historian.

You know the end of the day. You might not agree with a lot of what i say and i might not agree with you but the thing is at the end of the day were still here. And there's just don't i just don't understand all the anger that people have in their conversations and and even political when they get out there i just i don't understand why there's so much Emotion right now. Do you think. Because i'm gonna jump right to one of the things that i suspect. Is that a lot of that is engineered if you will and i say that word very carefully and that you know i think we all know how to push each other's buttons right. We can do it you know you. You're a smart guy and i've heard enough interviews. You don't push buttons and anyone who doesn't push buttons or probes in a way knows how to do it and i think collectively it's just a given i mean we we turn on the news and we know how to push buttons. So do you think some of this is engineered. Oh for sure I i agree with that. Totally except for the engineering isn't always for the same reason and isn't always for the same people so you know a lot of it is political. But it's that's not what it's all about you know so we have to be careful. Not generalize and say that might be a lot of the problem just to say oh all of one group..
