Fresh update on "new york times" discussed on Morning Edition

"Edition from NPR News. I'm Noel King, and I'm Steve Inskeep. The Johnson and Johnson Covert vaccine has a very rare side effect. Officials paused the use of the vaccine to study news of blood clots that appeared in fewer out of one out of a million cases. Pause has had a very widespread side effect. It's an occasion for people to spread misinformation and conspiracy theories about vaccines. NPR's miles parks is covering that part of the story. Miles. Good morning. Hey, Steve. How widespread is this false information? I mean, just to set the stage for you a little bit. The most popular. The most popular link posted about the Johnson and Johnson News on Facebook this week in terms of engagement was not from the New York Times or Fox News or ABC News. All those news outlets were in the top five. At the top post was from a conspiracy theorist with 1.5 million Facebook followers who says the pandemic is basically just cover for government control. Well, And I guess we're going to get more of that. Yeah, exactly. I mean, it's clear that there is an active network centered around vaccine hesitancy trying to drive this hesitancy and those people are clearly picking up on this story. I talked to Jennifer Grant Stone. Was head of insights at a media intelligence firm called Zignallabs Signal has seen a number of vaccine misinformation narrative spike in mentions in recent days that vaccine conversation is So polarizing and there's so many eyes on it. There's so many components of it. This is kind of the perfect storm. On Tuesday, Johnson and Johnson was getting as many mentions online per hour as the company was getting mentioned an entire weeks prior to this news, what makes this particular news stories such an appealing moment for conspiracy grifters? The biggest thing is that there is what's called what experts call information deficit right now. The CDC basically said, You know, we're investigating these few reports of blood clots. We're gonna talk to doctors about how to deal with these extremely rare cases, and we'll get back to you. You being the public and that's transparent. That's true. But it also means there are a lot of open questions that people can exploit to basically say. You want answers right now we have them and there isn't good information yet to fill that void. So the longer this sort of waiting period goes on, the more people can jump in and exploit that void. I just want to know this information. Congrats. People killed false information about vaccines can literally get people killed. So does any of it break the rules of Facebook or Twitter or any laws? It's a really tough problem, because in a lot of cases, this is actually people sharing, you know, credible news sources, articles from CNN or the Washington Post or The New York Times. They're just using those factual articles as evidence of a broader, false premise. You know the idea that the vaccines are inherently unsafe for dangerous. This is a tactic that's emerged over the past year. As social media companies have gotten stricter about taking down blatantly false information. The other thing to note here is that these sorts of events would not be such a problem if the country wasn't so polarized by Cove it in general, I talked to Sarah Roberts, who's an information studies professor at U. C. L. A. And she put a lot of blame on that on former President Trump. Now, basically, she says, any time there's any sort of vaccine hic up our problem, the government is fighting against all of this really ingrained skepticism and division. Eyes this likely to be eased once the CDC comes up with some kind of answer about Jan J. It's really gonna depend on how effective the government is a cutting through all this noise, you know, one in four Americans still say they don't want to be vaccinated. It's doubtful this news helped And so you know, that's true. Even if this news doesn't actually affect the actual safety of the vaccines in pairs, Miles parks Thanks so much. Thanks, Steve. You hear him on NPR news? Later, on morning edition. Today. California joins nearly every other state and expanding vaccine eligibility to anyone 16 and older Florida. On the other hand, expanded vaccine eligibility a couple of weeks ago coming up, we'll examine how vaccine distribution is going in both of those states. At 5 51 this morning. Our commute looks pretty good..

Matt Gaetz: Why Is He Being Investigated?

"Lots talk right now about florida. Representative matt gaetz. Why what is going on with matt. Gaetz matt gaetz seems to be in a lot of legal trouble is what's going on tonight. Florida congressman matt gates is defending himself amid reports. The justice department is investigating is alleged relationship with a seventeen year old girl. Investigators looking into the alleged relationship from two years ago whether gates possibly violated sex trafficking laws when he allegedly paid for travel and other expenses for the team all things. The republican strongly denies it as a horrible allegation and it is a lie. He's being investigated for payments. He may have allegedly made to women in exchange for sex in one case a woman who was under each seventeen years old in one sense. This is a pretty classic political sex scandal but the real reason it seems to have struck such a chord is that gates was one of the most bold outspoken defenders of former president donald trump who was of course plagued by scandal throughout his term in office gates was always there to say. Oh president trump was just being persecuted by the deep state. When robert muller leaves capitol hill. I think the american people will see that there was no collusion and there was oceans of bias and it turns out that the justice department has some questions for representative gates as well before we get into this sordid saga. We should just flag. That matt gaetz has not been charged with anything by anyone relating to the sex scandal correct. That's correct so. This is all stemming from a report initially in the new york times that gates was under investigation for perhaps having sex with a seventeen year old and for the payments to

The incomplete tally puts amazon on the cusp of defeating the most serious organized labor threat in the company's history in a high profile campaign since the fall of the retail wholesale and department store union aimed to establish the first union at an amazon warehouse in the united states. The result will have major implications not only amazon but also for organized labor and its allies. Union said there were three thousand. Two hundred and fifteen ballots cast from fifty five percent of the five thousand eight hundred and five eligible voters at the warehouse in the closely watched election. The union must get support from more than half of the votes cast to prevail. The ballots were being counted in random order in the national labor relations.

Trump Paid $750 in Federal Income Taxes in 2017

"The new york times obtaining information on president trump's tax returns the times reporting the president pages. Seven hundred fifty dollars in taxes in twenty sixteen and again in his first year in office in two thousand twenty. A report from the new york times revealed that president trump paid virtually no personal income taxes for many years. Trump's assertions about his finances were less than truthful. Some part of the tax return information was disclosed in twenty twenty and it turned out he had paid virtually no federal tax. I think two consecutive years. That didn't seem to have much of an impact certainly on his quote unquote bays totally fake news. Now actually pay tax but and you'll see that as soon as my tax returns it's under order. They've been underwater for took nearly four years and a slew of corroborating witnesses to highlight even one piece of the president's byzantine finances and then the president weaved all this away from the podium which only made things more difficult for voters. Here was the evidence. The president was misleading the public claiming to be a billionaire while paying less in taxes than almost anyone. The president claimed that all that was made up fake news but there was no way for the public to know for sure because he still refused to provide those tax returns. It is certainly true. That had the returns been released. There would have been follow up questions that were possible that without the returns could never have been asked because the return cisco's a good bit of information that the annual financial disclosure reports that presence and other senior executive branch officials and candidates have to file. Don't they don't provide that more granular information and therefore they don't raise the kinds of questions that he would be required to answer.

You privately asked the white house for blanket. Preemptive pardon for himself and unidentified congressional allies for any crimes they may have committed. according to two people told of the discussions on november twenty fourth one donald trump and matt gaetz were pretending that donald trump would be president for life carbon gates went on fox to prepares his supporters and trump supporters for what he hoped would be hardens for everyone.

Amazon Illegally Fired Labor Advocates, Federal Board Rules

"In the ongoing story about amazon and the company's efforts to fight against unionization the us national labor relations board ruled against amazon in a recent claim stating that the company illegally fired two employees who had advocated for workers rights and to call the company to account for its environmental impact. Merrin kosta and emily cunningham had both criticized their employer publicly before the company fired. Both women a move that the labor board identified as retaliatory amazon representative. Jc anderson said that the reason the company handed the employees their walking papers wasn't to punish them for criticizing amazon. But rather for quote repeatedly violating internal policies in quote however since at least one of those policies seems to be about speaking publicly about the business according to the new york times this seems like circular logic to me almost like a catch twenty. Two sure you can criticize amazon. It seems to say but if you speak publicly about the business you violated an internal policy criticizing not against the rules. It's an that speaking about the business that is but that internal policy sounds like it is partly designed to protect. The company from employees criticizing. It publicly at least in any

Voices From The Trial Over George Floyd's Killing

"The ongoing murder trial of Derek Shove in the former Minneapolis police officer charged in the death of George Floyd. Has been excruciating. The testimony of the witnesses, many of whom wept on the stand, the video evidence had played over and over the last minutes of Floyd's life with show Van's knee pressed on his neck. The emotions have been particularly sharp for black people in this country and those who are from Minneapolis yesterday I spoke with Michelle Norris and Charles Blow. Norris is a former NPR host who was raised in Minneapolis. She's now columnist for The Washington Post and Charles Blow is a columnist for The New York Times who recently went to Minneapolis for the trial. Michelle, I'm going to start with you Thistle playing out in your home town. You grew up 10 blocks from what George Floyd was killed. And you wrote on Twitter and I'm going to quote here You'll take care of yourself and your people. If you're tracking this trial, this is trauma, watching it, watching others who watch it and are forever haunted, watching and waiting to see the impact on the 12 jurors watching all of this, so take care. Tell me your thoughts watching this trial. I'm traumatized and I'm I'm hurt. And I'm angry and anguish. For my hometown and for the nation. What we're seeing here is collective trauma. Everyone who took the stand Who witnessed this talked about being haunted. Talked about feeling helpless. I've been talking to my people in Minneapolis, you know all week, especially this week, and you know, there are a lot of tears. I think people watching this not just in this country but all over the globe are stunned and saddened by what they're seeing because he may have seen the video. But now you're seeing it in three D, and this is a New dimension of this trial. You know you saw inside out close. You heard his is breathing in a way that was so intimate. So what their Children did was horrible on so many levels. But we look in this trial at what he did to George Floyd. This trial invites us to think about what he did to a nation. And what he did to the city and what he did in particular to that community. The people who drive by that black every day to the Children to the elders to the homeowners, and I can say with certainty that he probably would not have done that. 20 blocks west or 20 blocks south or even 15 blocks south where people sit in sidewalk cafes and and you know, and go to participate, Ease and artisanal pizzerias.

Life's edge the search for what it means to be alive. Carl thanks for being here. Thanks for having me all right so right now. You're kinda busy. You've been reporting on corona virus for the times. What is that leg. It's kind of overwhelming You know i am kind of startled that you know the whole world wants to read what we at. The scientists have to write about. You know this virus. But i will remember this experience of the past year for the rest of my life really. It's been exceptional as a as a moment in science journalism as a science journalist. Is this an area that you had been looking at for years and years. Were you especially interested in epidemiology or was this sort of switching gears for you. I've had a obsession with viruses for a long time. I'm actually wrote a book called the planet of viruses a few years ago. So you know. I've reported on ebola and influenza over the years of have done the virus thing. And so you know i i felt like well i can bring my experience to bear on this and and so basically it just started doing the same kind of reporting about this virus but now of course this is a virus that was causing a kind of pandemic that we have not seen for one hundred years. You're not the only journalist covering this pandemic obviously not even the only journalists covering this pandemic on the scientists at the times. How do you all kind of divide it up. Do you have an area in particular that you are looking at specifically yet. None of us can do this alone absolutely and we have to really roll with the punches. You know i was focusing a lot on vaccines for example in the fall overseeing our tracker and then we started to to see these variants were popping up. Then we're of serious concern so i basically had to carve out some time to work on variants but mental really. My colleague has also been writing about various. Like crazy and ben muller and we actually have several people who who just try to keep up with the variants. You know and and there are other people who are handling the store. All the stories of vaccine distribution geopolitics and long cova. There be other people handling that. It's it's such an enormous story. What about it most interest you personally. Well i'm most interested in in The pandemic ending besides that that and not being sick. Yes yeah is unsettling jim how this pandemic has played out exactly. As scientists had warned it would

How Three Women Re-Wrote the Story of War

"Before the vietnam war there was a law that banned women from reporting on the front lines of any war for the us. When president johnson refused to officially declare a state of war in vietnam in opening appeared no ban a handful of pioneering women bought one way tickets into the battlefield they had no editors no health insurance and little or no formal training reporter elizabeth becker former washington post war correspondent in cambodia and then npr's foreign editor and then national security correspondent for the new york.

When you're so young you said the short answer was a nightmare. I was all too keen to leave behind. My masters adviser had rejected my thesis on the bangladesh war of independence after. I refused to sleep with him and he said one wasn't related to the other. Just tell me what happened. This was nineteen seventy two and there weren't that many women in graduate school and he made a move. And i said no. He pressed on and i said no he rejected. The thesis. said. I had to work harder on it. Then resisted any idea that one related to the other. That even made a pass at me.

"Think maybe i mean. Even if except a group of editors were to leave the times and either start individual substance or a competing organization. I still don't think it would be the time is now. Some of that. is maybe branding. But even dislike the process of creating the paper that once was a physical paper and now is continuously updated digital masthead every day or as they would call at the daily report. Yup i think there may be some process power interesting harden without looking under the hood. But i think it's a reasonable reasonable. Guess i mean. I can certainly say from when i worked at the journal and i worked on the quote unquote business side. Not on the not on the edit side. But i will tell you. There was absolutely a machine that had lake. It was a miracle that an and i think anybody who works in the news. Business will tell you this data lease rates about it the book. It's a miracle that the paper happens every day and the website updates every day and nobody. Who's part of it can kind of fully explain it but like somehow everybody comes to work every day and like stories get published and edited and like it happened. I felt that way about when i was at microsoft shipping office every three years like there was such an unbelievable process to get through people to all lock their code and a a bug freeway and get it out the door once every three years. I i completely see how it's possible for someone not to understand how the entire system works themselves. Okay cool all right. Think there any others now. I think this is pretty clear. Cut all right into playbook. Well the very top one for me is something we've talked about already in this episode but is just this is the ultimate articulation of it. And that is the barbell media landscape that exists on the internet where you have this distribution with a very very small amount of scale players and a very long tail of niche players with incredibly low cost structures and nothing in the middle worked anymore and the new york times went from being at the they were at the sort of head of the distribution but sort of behaved like a loss middle person until they decided that what their strategy was was to be the ones scale player. And sort of if you're going to publish on the internet you need to escape to one side or the other you need to either have a dramatically dramatically lower cost structure. Or you need to be the big guy and there's just not that much room in the middle. It's really reminiscent of the bob. Eiger disney strategy. I think craig like total world. Where youtube exists. You need like the winning strategy for disney was. Go hard into hyper high. Quality expensive provisional up and the time has their own version of the bob eiger three point plan of what was that original content internationalization and then embracing the digital strategy. And i you know you. You could make an argument that the times is kind of doing the same thing. It's the best original content in the news world. It's you know it's the highest quality journalism they have a very real international. They're opening more international bureaus than anyone else. They are frequently having dual english and chinese bylines. John they are. I think right now..

"Then flip it and start All the carriage debates and whatnot and you know. Hey we're gonna fox news from dido comcast if you don't write in and tell them veto upset you're going to be cetera. So this isn't credible. I i i knew this from working at news corp like that fox news was a great business. It is an incredible business so by two thousand two. So that's eight years after launch. Fis news is the number. One news. Work network on tv becomes number one passes. Cnn it remains number one every single week from then for literally nineteen th straight years until january of this year after the capital riots when they lost a lot of years like literally nineteen hundred eight years. It is the most watched news network ought american television. That is unbelievable. Yeah so whatever you think of fox news as an organization like for we're not here to judge one way or the other it brings in so this is fox's total cable network segment of fox. News is by far the lion share in twenty nineteen generated. Five point four billion dollars in revenue and two and a half billion dollars of so. That's like a fifty percent fifty percent ebitda margin. That's facebook good. Yeah i just found this so interesting lake in so many ways now. People think of the new york times on one end and fox news on the other end like even the new york times would absolutely assert. We are in the center and we are in in on no end totally but this is like an espn level business. That the times would have built something different. But i think they got into broadcast television. They're getting into the internet missing. The boat on the opportunity for cable news was huge. Here yeah it's interesting. I never if you would if you hadn't told me about all the diversification that new york times had done and you knew of it today just the way they are sort of single brand single pseudo. Single product company and said should the new york times. go into cable or should they have gone into cable. I'd be like no. That's not what they do. Is their core competency like barely do video on their website and their mobile app. Well they definitely shouldn't do that but clearly they were trying stuff and they were willing to do stuff like this and just it yup. Yup they frankly just missed it and d- did they miss it like one question i have is the times. Doesn't have it in to do something. Outwardly an intentionally partisan and so maybe they saw the opportunity but didn't believe that it was there for a centrist that good existed in does very well So i think it could have been different and it would. I think be very unlikely that the times would have said okay great. We're gonna make a cable network but we're gonna target liberals specifically right so it's certainly complicated but i just like i wanted to go dive into.

"Set it up this way that each of the three of them had a vote because he wanted if a gene he wanted to essentially make sure that arthur was a good husband to her because she had the deciding vote between him and crozon to be a publisher which is like really weird and sexist and kind of strange but also like super crafty style building up of ox. we've done. This is not the only time throughout history but it will be the first sort of part of the new york times history where you sort of have to look at it with a squinty eye and go. Ooh that's a little bit of a black mark. Yeah so if it's so. She went to barnard and was college-educated. See double majored in economics and history. She was super super smart. As you would expect of like the only child of adolph ochs and it's hard to tell exactly what she wanted but some accounts say she did want to take over the times and become the publisher. Unfortunately that wasn't in the cards but she remained on the board of the company for pretty much her whole life. She lived to be ninety eight years old. She didn't die until eighteen ninety. And there's some debate on this people might know Audience does sort of nickname of the times is the gray lady. And there's multiple sorta origin stories of degree lady. Nickname wanted meat. Did it later become the good gray lady or where does good come in. Maybe that's part of it So i think the origin is the bank of england was called the good lady or something like that and so it's sorta borrowed from that. Some people say the gray came from like looking at the patriots. Bunch of gray data. Do sprayed it's a great paper. Became the gray lady. Alternatively if gene is the gray lady she was a presence on the board and sort of the link to ox and the Moral fiber if you will of the company for ninety years until nineteen ninety. It's crazy and this is really introducing the very first of many not necessarily outwardly contentious but inwardly contentious succession decisions. That happened the new york magazine quote continues from earlier. If gene being the deciding vote supported her husband thus cleaning a fault line in the family that was never repaired and that you can imagine generations. Go by this thing really starts to compound because there starts to be massive numbers of cousins. Who are you know the same way related to adolf that the people who ended up sort of succeeding adolf and you know five generations later. They're sort of the same amount related but there's not sort of the chosen bloodline to pass down the paper through and it has always been a male air that has become the publisher now to five generations. Even though there are plenty of daughters in the family so ox crafty lake. He is he sort of his. so gay. Talese the great writer from the fifty sixty s seventy s who actually worked as a reporter at the new york times for a while. He wrote sort of the definitive Book about the new york times in in i think he came out in nineteen sixty nine called the kingdom and the power which. I don't think the family loved like this one. I was reading the the trust from about right around year. Two thousand refers to the kingdom of the power. And i think he was always after we released. That kept it a little bit of arms length. Yeah so he writes about this. He says how long the times would survive would depend largely on. How will oxy's airs got along in the decades ahead..

"The time until this. I'd apparently i did find this. The trask and the rest of the committee that was dealing with the bankruptcy of the times was in favor of a different plan to merge it like to basically unload the assets merged into a different paper. Wipe their hands clean and say look we got something for it and instead adolph's walking in here with like a whole different plan of like i am going to figure out how to revive this thing and make it great and of course. There is some wicked financial engineering. That he promises a that he really has to make the case of like you. Don't just it's not a cash by here like you're going to have to believe in in order to make this work. Yup so cleveland writes back with like a letter of endorsement and he walks in there with a letter of endorsement from the president of the united states. Incredible so the bankruptcy committee accepts his plan. He pays seventy five thousand dollars up front to the creditors which he also scraped together with borrow money because remember he owes one hundred thousand dollars right. This is the craziest thing. This guy buys the new york times he will eventually have a controlling interest in it and as it says in the trust. This is my passage. The yoko from tennessee had accomplished the impossible. He had bought the new york times using none of his own money. Amazing this the minnow swallows wail from when cap cities body bc hundred percent. So how does it work exactly. There's like seventy five k. that he quotes puts up. Actually he goes in like gets people in tennessee to put an upright. He'd like rounded up the money from some people in new york. Some people in tennessee. I think he waved around the letter. From cleveland to a bunch of people so that was a small part of the consideration. The other part is he uses salaries notes again of six hundred thousand dollars in debt to owed back to the creditors that they will pay off over some number of the coming years from prophets. He'll generate by running this paper. That has nine thousand subscribers in his bleeding. I think on the order of about half a million dollars a year at this point in losses. You can see why if you're trask or the existing bankruptcy committee. You're like i think we'll take the merger like this doesn't sound like any kind of guarantee this guy that no one's ever heard of. He's coming in from tennessee. Like you gotta sympathize with the original plan. Yeah totally but somehow he gets it done so he emerges with the new york times and he has just like one problem which is okay. How are you gonna are. You gonna turn this thing around okay. So what's the plan. What what's the play on..

"Chattanooga times but he needs one hundred k. Like faster than four years. He's not gonna cut it. He does know he can turn around newspapers though so he starts putting out some feelers traveling around the country looking for another newspaper that he could buy and take over just like he did with the chattanooga times and we should say a key component to the success of him turning around the chattanooga times comes from the fact that chattanooga was this sort of melting pot of north and south and adolf really believed in that and he really believed in the chattanooga times as unbiased paper of the people representing a balanced view of the world and chattanooga was sort of the perfect place to pull that idea from totally very very very much. So that's when he hears he gets wind of the bankruptcy proceedings going on in new york for the new york times. And i he's like supposedly he's like. That's too big. Like i can't go. You know adolph ochs from chattanooga tennessee. I can't go like take over the new york times and at that point even though it was in dire trouble the brand of the new york times it was the best newspaper brand of the country. Still it was total definitely thought of as like the the paper but some mentors convince him that that he can do this so in eighteen ninety six. He packed up his bags. Hops on the train goes up to new york. Leaves his family behind running the chattanooga times and he scrapes together so the times in bankruptcy proceedings. He scraped together a plan to the creditors and to the receivers bankruptcy to take the paper out of bankruptcy and take it over. This is incredible. So he's like this this. I think he was late. Thirties at the time from tennessee shows up in new york. Kinda walks into the bankruptcy court has like believe me. I can do this and two convenient the thing about the the interbank transfer who no i. Don't he convinced a chattanooga bank to wire money to a new york bank so that if in new york people check to see like. Are you wealthy. He had a bank account with money in his name and to the chattanooga bank who he knew well he wrote them a personal check and said look. I'm good for it. I promise wire the money. I i don't intend to use it. That's a vase it's like there's incredible huckster stuff going on that he. He's sort of pulls got entrepreneurial. Hustle so did you find. Did you read about the other thing. He did to convinced the creditors of his legitimacy. You know this is amazing. so president. Grover cleveland the time like you as president had come through chattanooga. I think on his while he was campaigning. And as the leading newspaper publisher of the chattanooga times ox was on the welcoming committee so he got to meet grover. Cleveland was campaigning at you. Know he he kept his address at sixteen hundred pennsylvania avenue where to find him so he writes to the president while he's going to new york and he says he writes cleveland. He says i am negotiating for controlling interest in the new york times and have fair prospects of success. I write to respectfully ask that you address by return. mail a letter to mr spencer. Trask chairman of the new york times publishing company giving your opinion of my qualifications. Newspaper publisher general personal character.

"C could reach a whole new mass market so here we are in september of that year of eighteen fifty one the well-known new york journalist and politician henry jarvis raymond and his friend and former Banker and merchant. George jones embark on a new venture new newspaper venture in this brave new landscape and they published the first edition on september eighteenth. Eighteen fifty one of the new hyphen york. New york daily. All right rosenthal. You've made your point hyphen with hyphen. So who are these guys. so jones. As we said was a former banker he had also though worked as business manager at horace. Greeley's new york tribune which was then sort of premier paper in new york and that was where he had met raymond. Jones had family money and lots of connections about town from his wife's family. Do you know his wife's father's name. Ben you're not gonna get this. But i had to put it in here. His wife's father's no. I have no idea. Benjamin gilbert the well no. New york's really yeah really. I saw that it was got got. Include this here this research this so he puts up twenty five thousand dollars of his own family. Money to to finance this new venture they want to get to one hundred thousand dollars so he goes and he raises the other seventy five thousand dollars. This is a lot of money in eighteen fifty one from just you know some like casual family connections. He has like you. Know several members of the morgan family and up financing this like j j. Pierpont morgan yeah exactly. Wow as you do this shows up in like all these old stories like. I feel like everyone somehow was getting financed by j. p. morgan and these days totally so that's jones. He sort of the the business guy. He brings brings the capital. But it's really raymond. Who's the real force behind this. So who is who was henry. Raymond he was quite the interesting character as we mentioned he had worked at the tribune with your own switched where they met and that was the premiere sort of respectable penny paper out there as they were known for the one sent papers He had also been very involved in politics. And when i say very involved. I mean very very involved. Ben do you know what other organization henry. Raymond is well known for co founding. Besides what would become the new york. Times i feel like i should remember this from ap us history. But i do not. A little organization called the republican party of which he was a founder. What five founding members kind of incredible like this is this blue mind doing the research literally. He's known as the godfather of the republican party is also the founder of the new york times and all of this was happening concurrently. So what's it like a mouthpiece for the republican party in the early days well not quite okay. So before he jones decided to start the times raymond had actually left the newspaper business and he was a politician. He was a member of the new york state legislature where he was a member of the whig party at the time the precursor to the republican party. But he'd step down and then he decides to start with jones to start the times which they do but then shortly after raymond is running the times he is managing editor. He's the publisher like jones. The money but raymond is really running it While he's still running it. He goes back into politics leading up. To abraham lincoln's presidential campaign. And that's when he. Along with lincoln and also along with horace greeley from the tribune they in a couple of the people. Start the republican party and of course is abolitionism and the abolition of slavery in the united states..

"It's been asserted by the Attorney General of. Of the United States and others in the US government, but as an assertion in an op Ed, it does not strike me as it hasn't been debunked, either and I was gonna say as an assertion in an op, ed. It doesn't strike me as really much beyond what you could read in. OP EDS in the New York. Times across the board every day by their columnists and others, there are assertions made I mean as you read the cotton piece, let's take away the headline. The crudity of the in jarring nature of the headline did you find it objectionable on its face and something? You would not have run if you were in James. Bennett shoes such a good question. I would I you know. Here's what I'd say I I tend towards wanting to ventilate arguments. People are able to knock down his arguments by reading it closely I. DO think that you know the Times mistakes. Itself thinks that good news coverage of something setting it out fairly, but also setting out legal and moral than other objections, and and challenges to. It doesn't accomplish the. The job as well I did note some Michael. Powell not known as a reactionary commentator for the times, and not a right winger at now laboring in Sports, previously a columnist in the new side, you know, he said this was an embarrassing retreat from principal when the Times effectively apologized, and regretted the publication that said CJ shivers a former war correspondent for the Times A. I guess currently an investigative reporter for time. Who's himself a veteran of the US? Marine Corps said the decision to publish. This was wrong on its face and talked about what he's seen abroad when protesters face not domestic police, but military forces, trying to keep control of circumstances, and how that heightens tension, and you know he to talked about what journalists have faced. You know reported on fairly extensively as well the kinds of hostility and violence that journalists faced at the hands of police officers and law enforcement officials across the country in these recent weeks. Well beyond the Pale you know in the US It's often considered beyond the Pale to include for example, people from Hamas or leaders from Hamas in talking about what how you would deal with trying to come up with some sort of long-term peace surrounding Israel Palestine and the middle. East right in Israel. Newspapers are much more likely to publish those things. Yeah, that's within the accepted bounds of discourse. You know so I think these things are very fluid. What we saw as? was in some ways as a result of market forces, it was useful for newspapers as the number of newspapers dwindled in major cities across the country to appeal not too strong niches like cable news does now, but more blandly to a broader part of the population. So that's how impartiality was embraced by newspapers and became a journalistic ethic. It became a matter of principle, but it was really driven by market forces. You don't. Don't have to be a Marxist to see that right, so you know the things that we take as points of absolute morality and principal in our profession often evolve overtime forces that are actually apart from that so i. think that whether or not you think what Bennett was right, the clearly was strong reaction from their readership, but in this case the readership that that undermined him. What's inside the newsroom across the way? At a on the news side of the divide there, and that was a problem for Sulzberger and I think that right now. Journalists are raw and I think that they are. It's more like the seventies to me. You know people are talked about this being sixty eight, but it feels to me like the seventies where people are like, are we inventing new forms narrative or inventing new forms of what ethics mean what it needs to be an ethical journalist, and sometimes that can lead very positive results, and sometimes it can lead to chaos because. It's not clear where the lines are drawn right now and I think he's in that. You know like The Washington Post where Ben Smith, had a great column in The Times about how Marty Baron perhaps the best newspaper in the country right now nonetheless has a sort of rigid control over what's appropriate for people to say on social media it drives out some of their very talented people, and it also caused great confusion, because the editors don't always know what principles they're applying other than trying to shut people up, you know, David. You mentioned Israel. I had been thinking the same thing I was based. There was always struck by the. The vigorous debate in the newspapers and the kind of you know basically a battle of ideas, and it seems to me I guess one of the questions coming out of this episode at The Times and the other ones is that there's a danger of a chilling effect that these op. Ed Pages ought to be forums for vigorous debate in our society and I remember years ago as a young journalist, I worked for the Washington Post editorial page for the late great. Meg Greenfield and I think one of the things that she used to do. With part of the problem. is you run a piece like the cotton piece? There's no context. All you have is a piece. That's very provocative, and that is very prominent. It's the op-ed page of the New York Times. She used to run kind of point counterpoint when there was a more provocative piece of that sort, so I kind of wonder like. Because I think it would be kind of a sad thing, if opinion editors were no longer willing to run provocative pieces, so what are the kind of prescriptive things that you can do to continue running those kinds of pieces, but avoid some of the pitfalls that has you know led to? Bennett's being pushed out and I. Guess The question is. Are you worried about a? A chilling effect as a result of these kinds of decisions, Bari Weiss, who's a conservative something of a contrarian at the Times was hired as an editor, and soon became a writer on under her own name, is basically characterized this as tensions between the woke young `uns, and the more, classically liberal, forty and fifty. Something's at times, and she tributes this kind of Smothering correctness that she attributes to college campuses now I can tell you having been a former higher education, reporter, college, campuses, or clamorous paces, player, people, debate and outrage each other all the time. There may well be a left of center ISM, but it's you know they're a lot of conservative voices. They're to you in a lot of lot of clashes there. You know it's really question how times conceives of itself is. For Liberal America. Is it for all America? You know back in the day they used to have basically one conservative voice and William Safire Right, and I thought he was enormously engaging in reading with the morning lists was great, but you know he was pretty alone there for a long time and under Bennett they've tried to increase that to be honest under his predecessor. They tried to increase that, but there's always been this sort of wink till Abramson. Once said to me, you know we're not a liberal paper, but were a cosmopolitan paper. That understands the sensibility of the upper west side, and you know so. They wanted elite. They wanted bankers advertising type people, and they also wanted people who aspired to the kind of life reflected in the pages of the New York Times and the issues interested in the issues written there and so there's this kind of wink and. As I think it's easier than ever you know. The Times I think stumbles over itself not to be too explicit in going after president trump in characterizing it I think Washington Post Times harder hitting, and it's things about calling things racist calling things lives rather than evasions and yet in terms of social media. It is much more rigid about what it lets people do, and how voiced it lets people be. And you're just two different models of of an approach there each with its own problems i. do think that you know good news. Organizations allow the ventilation of a lot of different kinds of ideas from a lot of different perspectives. I do think under Fred Hi. Meg Greenfield, successor at the Washington Post I, think that is very careful, centrist editorial stance, but also by and large a fairly establishment..

"We're saying we want somebody with bayonets, putting down anything that strays over the line and lawlessness by the way sometimes involves mass protests without permits. Permits in public streets, but David, I mean you talk about readers more than ever being in the driver's seat, but I think you could also argue to some extent. Reporters inside the newsroom more than ever are in the driver's seat. If you look at this particular case and others out there and you know I think it is the case that social change is often driven by younger people and driven by generational changes, and I wonder if. If in this particular case, you know what it reflects about what's going on more generally in newsrooms out there and had a new generation of reporters kind of fueled and liberated by Social Media You have the excesses of course of the trump administration, and in some ways a rethinking or even discarding of kind of traditional standards and conventions that we've all relied on journalism, you know striving for kind of pure objectivity balance reflecting both sides both. Both side ISM becoming a bad word these days in favor of different kind of notion of truth, which is closer to the idea of taking moral stances in some cases, so is this something that you're seeing in newsrooms around the country, and is this kind of reckoning? That is taking place right now. rummy disentangle some of the important things that you're talking about here because I. Think you're onto something. I would characterize it a little differently. I would say. We moved from this notion of impartiality of objectivity. And progressive notion of about a century ago right to one I wouldn't call it to truth. I would call it to fairness, and the idea is to be fair to your readers to be fair to you. Particularly the people in subjects writing about the communities your rooted in and also to the facts and the truth, and that was the idea of fairness was a way of getting out of the pit of saying well, you know we said candidate X., said this, we said candidate. That candidate X. was actually making slanderous claims that are ungrounded fact unsupported by evidence, but we presented both sides. That is actually a journalistic failing. That is both lazy, and not you. What is the point of what we're doing? I always feel like the point of what we're doing ultimately is to enable people to act not just as consumers of news, but as citizens that they have the. I don't need to tell somebody what to vote or how to vote or what to think, but I want to tell somebody happy information the context that they can make up their own minds about what's going to best serve them their families, their communities, their nation, right and I think fairness was way of getting at that now there is I think among some journalists particularly, but not only younger journalists and idea. Even that is A. A fool's game when you were reporting an asymmetrical age, the symmetric calorie has a lot to do, but not only to do with partisan politics that is the Republican Party and the Democratic Party play by different rules. When it comes to journalism, it comes to facts and it comes to. The respected doesn't afford journalists in the role. They play in the political cycle. They're certainly extreme figures in an unscrupulous figures on the left as well. And Online, but there's a way in which people are saying, you know. Let's just get to the truth. Let's just get to what is moral, and what is true, and what is moral, and what is professionally ethical eric kind of different. And you know you can be amoral and still ethical. You can tell the story without saying this is wrong, but you can present the facts in a way that allow people to get there. And there's attention you know. I Value Opinion Journalism. It can be done well from the right and the left, but it's got to be fair to the back there. Other people who say you know we have to be clear on morality here and there are people you know. Newsroom editorial pages genuinely are run separately from newsrooms from the reporting wing of newsrooms as you guys both know in conventional legacy news outlets, and yet people at the times and people at the Philadelphia Inquirer say this is representing my brand. This is representing who I am publicly, and it's not in keeping with where I'm at. Yes, there should be dissonant voices. Yes, there should be con-. Pro and con, yes, there should be a vast rate things debated, but certain things shouldn't be amplified by the New York, times and giving credence and credibility they should be covered in the news pages, but as the. Clear violation of civil liberties that they represent whatever they have again. I think that. There's a real case to be made for what Bennett did. She has mean he has harbored the aspiration for his time at at the new. York Times of ultimately taking over for team Buckeye as the editor in chief, called the executive editor there and leading the newsroom, and he is seriously mis read the news from a number of Cajun what whatever the merits of his decisions. You have to be able to lead in those positions. Maybe bring people along to a place. They didn't initially want to go and he has failed on a number of cases to do that PG, Bird. The publishers backed him a couple of times. He just say you know finally, said you know. There was a lapse in editorial decision making here, and not for the first time I think the souls. Burgers have spent a little too much time explaining why what James Bennett did was right. To their own staffers. To the point where they ultimately felt this was a liability. Well I wasn't it wasn't helpful to his cause I don't think that he did not read the piece which he ultimately acknowledged and an editor of a section that produces a large amount of copy may not read every piece, but it is his or her responsibility to make sure that those pieces that are going to be very provocative and controversial. They read sure and look you know again. I kind of admired some of the things Bennett was doing. I think that. That it was a more dissonant, more interesting editorial page than the one he inherited by in this moment I think you're seeing in real time playing out in front of US journalist, hashing out what's accepted and what's interesting in part because social media affords more junior reporters and more rank and file, journalists, the ability to speak out publicly and to commune and share with one another where they're coming from simply because somebody has said this is the right decision doesn't even that's accepted in the same way at once was. Even reluctantly and I think that means that that it's more like almost like college faculty at Times. Let's talk about what actually happened at the time because. I, think you alluded to this before Sulzberger the publisher at first defended Bennett and defended the decision to run the op-ed, and then there's this extraordinary blowback from the news room and reporters and editors are complaining and. Raising their objections to it and Sulzberger reverses himself. I mean it seems a little like a mutiny of a of a sword, in which you know, the rank and file got to dictate to the brass what they should do and I'm just you know your first and foremost a reporter on these things give us insight into how that reversal by Seoul's Burger came about. My understanding is that he didn't know originally that Bennett hadn't read it. And that ultimately he concluded or said he concluded that the process to get it on wine was a little flap dash. This was initially scheduled to run in the Sunday paper you know. The Review Section is published in advance of Sunday, but. They didn't have to get it up Wednesday at the time they did. They could have taken a little more time with that, too. that it out. The fact that some of his assertions were challenged on a factual basis by reporters enabled grapple hold for critics to try to tear it down. Let me just say this I thought. Rich lowry had very interesting piece in the back and forth, and we've allred columns in the New York Times elsewhere that make bold assertions that are perfectly or even ordeal agree well backed up facts so yeah. I was just going to say I. Mean You know one of the factual assertions that the editor's note that they appended to it challenged. Was that Khadr as of left wing? Radicals like Antifa were contributing to the violence. Now that has not been substantiated..

Maybe the ones you don't hear as much about in the news or the media. We hope you'll listen and be a part of the journey subscribed today on Apple podcasts or wherever you listen to podcasts. We now have with US David Folkenflik. The media correspondent for NPR and the host of on point in NPR, show on the media David, welcome to skulduggery a great to join you guys again so quite a few days in the media world, the resignation of James Bennett The New York, times, editorial page, editor and Stan wish now ski the executive editor of The Philadelphia Inquirer both basically forced out. It seems because of controversial headlines, and in Mr Bennett Gaze at the New York Times and OP. Ed that ran under one of those headlines from Tom Cotton the Republican senator. Senator of Arkansas this seems to US pretty extraordinary. I can't remember too high level resignations coming back to back over pretty similar issues. What do you make them yet? Quite a week tour having accusing it's it's quite a year. We're having this week. It does seem like a moment. It's a moment where these prominent us rooms are grappling in a different way with some of the same issues that we're seeing. Play out at so many of these protested cities and communities across the country are black lives are black sensibilities, being taken as seriously as those of their white counterparts. Rethinking intently about the choices we're making editorial he as journalists, and about not only the good and use that they can have in serve, but the harm that they can do. These are the kinds of questions I'm hearing from African American journalist, those newsrooms and others including my own I think that what you're seeing is a journalistic judgments being called into question. Not, simply about whether or not, they were the right calls, but whether they reflect a blindness or deafness to the way, life is lived for people who aren't white and aren't at the top echelons, the top elite positions running these institutions and I think you know there's been a kind of resentment burgling for a while for for decades, probably as long as there have been African Americans in newsrooms, but about. About issues very closely related to the ones we see, play out, and some of them have to do with who gets to decide what gets covered and who gets to decide how the things that do get covered, get covered, and that may seem well journalism, and that's true James Bennett ran this piece called. Send in the troops by Arkansas Republican Senator Tom Cotton, you know a guy with sort of A. I think it's fair to say a bit of an authoritarian streak when it comes to what he would characterize as law and order, he wanted the president to invoke a little, known and little used statute to send in military troops, even if over the objection of governors and mayors to quell civil unrest, he framed it as going after looters, and seemingly drawing distinctions between leaders and protesters, but as we know sometimes mass protests, episodes of violence occurred that don't involve the vast majority of protesters and yet if you're militarizing those interactions between protesters and and looters and law enforcement, those distinctions are. Are GonNA. Get Lost but David, isn't it? This is the editorial page of the new. York Times, and isn't it one mission of editorial pages to reflect a diversity of viewpoints, not just ones that stroke the sensibilities of the majority of readers, but viewpoints that challenge them, and it seems to me. That's what basically the Times was doing here running a piece by a sitting united. States senator that reflected a viewpoint of many in the White House many at the highest levels of the US government, and you know we shouldn't. Readers want to be exposed and understand what that viewpoint is. Something very interesting I don't think anything I've said necessarily means that there isn't a rationale to running it. But I'm describing what journalists themselves are. Feeling and their reaction to it, I think part of it is generational, I think people under the age of forty under the age of thirty eight field bit differently than people who have been in newsrooms for decades I think some of it reflects you know a racial divide in terms of experience of how life is lived. That is not uniform in either direction and I do think that you know part of the original mandate of the Times opinion page, which really helped introduce phenomenon to American print journalism was look. We have aditorial that reflect the opinion. Opinion of our owners, or at least as reflected by people, they designate to write an official editorial position by the newspaper, but we are going to expand the range of opinions presented to our readers as a way of fostering debate, embracing the marketplace of ideas, which doesn't say that idea just dominates. It says that ideas are tested by often country, thinking and the Times editorial answered self is very much against the idea of militarising the law enforcement response to figuring out how to handle this this wave of protests, and at times eruption of violence in looting. And vandalism and and writing, but all of this is true, and James Bennett was an interesting and sometimes controversial figure he came to the from the Atlantic four years ago to the times and I think did an impressive job of expanding the range of opinions presented by The Times both on the right, and on the left with some really disparate interesting thinkers, as they broadly expanded the number of folks who they published online, but you hit on a really interesting point you said. Shouldn't readers want this well? Readers are now much more than in the driver's seat at the New York Times and this is increasingly true at other publications as advertising withers right. Paying subscribers are increasingly important to newspapers. I can't underscore this enough and digital subscriptions for the Times approve stratospheric. They've never had despite what hear from. The president never had more subscribers in existence since eighteen fifty one times was founded and digital subscriptions has really propelled that it is the way to add readers at very minimal cost, and what the readership expect is increasingly important to what people who are running the news reports and the editorial sections decide to do because if you lose those digital subscribers, you lose the ability to keep adding journalists I mean they now have like seventeen hundred journalists more than ever before at the Times at a time when newspapers generally are. Watching their finances go down the drain, so the readers are actually very important expectation of what the time is, maybe a little different than what you've said. Tom Cotton is not just conservative Tom Cotton, saying the PE- your sons and daughters, your friends and neighbors, you people who paid or read us..

"Okay. We just say anything actually say anything. Peril the failing New York Times. That's true. Here we are inaccurate fans of big Al. It all comes out wash, Eric, when MAC first game on your radar, how did he seem to you as compared not just who he had been lumped in with, but also the John has a whole. I'm max same age. So when he was being dubbed as this frat rapper, I was, you know, in college going to parties hearing him, you know? And that was definitely how I paid him initially and a, you know, as a lot of kind of pretentious college age kids can be, I was, you know, I was spurning that so so when I was I hearing him, you know, I was kinda, I definitely did not listen as intensively as I should have been at that time because I did lump Amon and think of him in the stereotypical way. And in that I think I would MIR a lot of listeners in that way that that that that followed him in that listeners, a lot of people took a while to kind of warm up to what he was doing artistically. I think one of the things about that era, you know, when you think of that, that set of rappers, you think of. You know, there's certain aesthetic. There's a, there's a presentation. There's on the sort of the the selling of access. And what I was found curious about MAC Miller in that moment was how small he seemed, and I mean that physically, but also he was so interested in how words went together and that to me when I first heard that I was like, okay, this kid is engaged in a different kind of project. He's not engaged in the same. He may maybe the, they play at the same parties. You know, maybe they perform in the same places, but his project is different than that. You can definitely hear that fascination with words, even back in those early projects, you can hear him working towards trying to become the rapper that he would be later on. And that, in essence, is the most important thing that true love of the craft and wanting to be a better MC and working towards becoming that EMS and how fascinating that young man from Pittsburgh would would see that as his way out now. Let me do a pop hit that will get me out of here in a second. Let me let me do the music that I love. Let me wrap on Lord, finesse beats. Let me travel to work with travel and then take the train to go work with static Selecta in New York, right? And earn my way up on an indie label rather than what kids can do now, which is just like throw something out there. Hope it gets big and get signed by major. There's this thing that happens. I remember writing about this a bunch of years ago, and I think that's happened specifically with white rappers a lot, and maybe not in the current internet era, when kind of everything is all the old rules are out the window, but I always felt that white rappers had to display a certain degree of fealty. You wanted to come into the game the right way for sure. And that could have been demonstrating historical knowledge that could have been rhyming in a way that that could been wrapping on Lord, finesse beats, as you say, and MAC, Miller to me was very much in that mold. Now, the other guys in that era maybe were slightly less than that mold. And now I think that stuff just basically all been washed out the visit, we're two guys who totally understands the. I've been thinking about this a lot lately. Why? Because he's so much younger than us. He doesn't come from the same background as us. We had very different experiences growing up. We came into the game differently, but why did we get along so well as as human beings? And I think part of it was we. We all understood the three of us what it was like two to play by the rules and to be accepted and to be celebrated. Yeah. And so MAC did it the right way, and there is something about that. There is something about playing by the rules paying your dues and and saluting your own, jeez, and then earning your way into a place where people cruciate your work, and then getting a lawsuit from. Who among. Also don't. We all kind of cosmetically, oh, Lord, finesse, like ten bucks. Probably. Vanessa's cash. Seriously I would. I would hit. Let's all if you're listening to this hit Lord, finance the cash app with the hit him with a five spot in it, a ten. He's earned it. And that's exactly right. Even like even fat boy, slim, slim, sampled, Lord, finesse. I don't think that sample was actually cleared if I remember the story correctly, and I don't know if this is a story that is in a publication or if it's in my brain, but with camera. Also did job. I think he basically just gave Lord finance like a check for like fifty thousand or Andre thousand just because that was an unofficial sample and there was that's what you did back in the day. You're like, oh, how do I make this right? Do you wanna play the Lord finesse sample. The learning process. Let's listen to the fat boy slim song that's apples, Lord, finesse that maybe hopefully Lord for that, Scott had big check for which is called the Rockville gang, which was a big hit when I lived in London. In some point in the late nineties. This

Overdose. Been really tragic and toxic to care about hip hop in the care about young rappers. And I wanted to make sure that we did right by MAC. And so this episode, I've got a bunch of folks in the studio who have thought hard about max career, and we're friends with them also and wanna go back over the ark of the last seven or eight years, and really kind of not just talk about his music in an isolated way, but also talk about a lot of the larger trends and movements that were happening in the John RIA that his music either set off or intersected with. So starting off, it's the real Eric, Jeff Rosenthal. Hey guys, hey, Oregon, Jeff, are about sketch comedians there those the podcast, a waste of time with it's the real. They the authors of a book called rhyme book that just came out and they also crucially appeared on MAC, Miller's TV show. He did MAC Miller and the most family appeared on MTV two in two thousand thirteen. Yeah. Yeah. Thanks guys to my left Sheldon Pierce low world Sheldon's back second time on podcast Sheldon's or contributing writer pitchfork and wrote about max career recently and to my right first time. Hello.

So look, we're going to start chronologically and we'll kind of work our way forward. We started podcast with cooling, frozen pizza, and that is off the kids aka kickin, incredibly dope mix tape be. Thousands of I MAC Miller, Nick say, but it was maybe the one that drew the most attention. And actually something I think came up in your piece Sheldon that I felt like we should get on the table early is something that I was never one hundred percent comfortable, but was a discourse around MAC which was like frat rep. And now this was a moment where that was a real thing shouts all my real Cam. Megan's ED's. You know where you're at? Probably binge drinking or doing something really unfortunate what that was a real moment. There was a moment where if you're white rapper away that attention you that was a quasi sub genre, I personally never felt that MAC totally neatly fit into that, but I feel you mentioned it in your piece specifically in regards this era them, and I wonder if you can talk first of all about what the music was like in this moment in max careers, own nine, maybe into tap into ten yet. I think the kids came out the summer of twenty ten. This was like post Asha RAV I love college. And so over the next. Over the course of that next year, there were a bunch of rappers who came out in that same vein wrapping specifically to college kids specifically to white college kids who were sort of using this music to soundtrack frat parties.

"So in the seventies, Chris cow is helping to sort of define the sound of village voice, music criticism. And then the late seventies someone comes along who I know is very familiar to podcast listeners and friends of the New York Times, and that is John paralysis. Our chief pop music critic with update fee. What up. So JP people who read you in the times may not know that before you were here starting in eighty two, you're the voice. You start writing at the voice mainly seventies a newer, the music editor for a minute. In the early eighties. Tell me about the voice as a reader before you even show up when d I encounter it and what's your take on it? What does it make you think? Well, I got to New York in seventy seven. I was aware of the voice before that as a music fan, but I got there in seventy seven and it was it it in the SoHo, weekly news? Yeah, r I p were the only thing in town and the voice was. It was. I pardon the expression, the pitchfork of its era. It was the beacon of integrity. It was the, we get the cool stuff. I, it was really smart writing. Crisci was a task master. Crisco did not publish anything that was not really well thought out and well written and had excellent prose, but also had a real argument to make. He really set the standard high, and he would work really hard with anybody. He edited to make sure it met that standard. If that meant like five rewrites, if that meant a three hour comma by comment fitting session, he would do that. Of course. He didn't have to do that with me because my copy just like zooms into print, obviously, obviously to this day to day now. Nary a red Mark on your proofs. Yep, no blue pencils for me heavy, but. But you learned from an edit with crisco. About how to construct an argument, how to write a piece where you needed an example where you needed to, you know, make a bold statement. It was always an education. So I give it up to Bob and people were doing that. I mean, rock criticism was was still in its infancy pretty much, you know, I guess it kind of had started a decade earlier, but still it was. It was people figuring out as they went along. Put the other thing by rock criticism at the time was it was so different in the era before total access to music. It wasn't like, oh, you know, what does captain beef heart sound like I'll go to Spotify. There was no Spotify. You probably couldn't find a captain beef heart record in your record store unless you in a big city. There was this an entirely different relationship with music, and people looked to the press is certainly did to find out what I should listen to. You know the top forty was one thing MTV came along in. Eighty eighty one. But you know, when I started being a rock critic, it was the record you could get in the records you heard in the records, you know somebody told you about a new wet on bought. I also just in what you're saying reminds me something something I actually heard Bob, say, once in a talk or a moderate conversation or something he he made the case that I thought was pretty convincing that certainly in that era, maybe slightly less so now. But in that era, that criticism, especially as practice in the New York culture. Scene was news because criticism, it's sort of separates the wheat from the chaff. It kind of tells you what's worth paying attention to what's not worth paying attention to. Obviously a lot of these young artists are necessarily be profiled certainly not in that era, but that critics were sort of doing this kind of functional sorting of what you should pay attention to what you should be aware of. That resonated for me, it will absolutely. And you know, there was top forty radio in New York. You were lucky enough to have some good college radio stations, but that was. The outlet in you would have club booker's of the era that would bring the bands to you. There's this little place called CBGB's effort of, I think you're referring to the John Murphy store, but I don't know. It was a really different era for access to music and critics were kind of sensual. And Bob brought a real sense of mission to the gig. You know, it wasn't just consumer advice filtering. It was, how do we listen to this? How do we approach this? What is this mean to the wider culture? I mean, all of the things that separate criticism from reviewing and the voice really set that standard. I mean, I, I couldn't believe that I could get in to the voice when I finally got my first assignment was a big deal. It was such a big deal. Yeah, it was the coup he'd gold standard and I was still just a nerd. So it was a really great thing. You told me on Email or on tax. I can't remember of the circumstances of your first assignment. You want to go to tell the people not really. You're not gonna mention your man's name note. Okay. I'm not a mom. Suffice it to say that they'd bid. Somebody had not compete with an assignment and Bob knew that I knew about the band and he called me and had me to the store. I mean, I've been in New York for a couple of years. I was actually working as an editor crawdads so I wasn't in over the transom manuscript. People knew was, but it was still such an honor to be in the voice, the voice, you know, you go back to Norman Mailer, go back to all of the great critics.
