Vicarious Visions reportedly working on a Diablo 2 remake at Blizzard
"For me. The story of the week is vicarious visions rolled in spink succumb to the blizzard. Avalanche of the blizzard ebay. They need to plow basically. They need good that name again. It's fist blow to dig them out Most recently they made tony hawk one and two which i rave about last year absolutely phenomenal Release of those games. Did the crash release as well and i just outstanding studio. In my opinion. I think track record of just hits in working on some great games in now Based on the press release that came out it appears as if they are going to be a support studio for the larger blizzard instead of like. Hey go make a new ip or go work on this franchisor or elite on this they. It seems like we'll be one of the many studios you see as you're waiting to get to the title screen of a gay or when the credits are rolling. You're like how many people worked on this in support of i blizzard game. So i guess diablo's or unannounced Helping ship overwatch to maybe. But it's kind of a bummer. I think that team seem super talented. And it this seems kind of unceremonious to me. Well the rumor is that vicarious visions has been working on a diablo to re master for quite a while and that blizzard was so dissatisfied with the warcraft. Three re master which received a lot of hype and was Was a disappointment. i think. I think there's only one way to describe it. It was a disappointment to fans. It was a disappointment to the studio when it released it. Had a bunch of problems and I think they the rumor is that they wanted to date. Being blizzard. wanted to avoid a repeat of that kind of scenario and we're using vicarious visions to work on the diablo two remastered which is unannounced. Chat is saying remake is what they're polite yes. Pardon me remake. These terms should be precise and i. It's my mistake for nelson. Hasn't been out so we don't really know i mean with warcraft. Three was a master. S diablo to remake would be pretty exciting but yes supposedly that was handed over to the four-team and then than they brought in vicarious visions to offload that work as work on the before ramped up and They're they're calling it. Diablo two resurrected all again all of this rumor. But if that's the case super excited obviously victorious visions. Very good at these kinds of remakes. These kinds of taking old games and making them look gorgeous on modern technology so as a huge fan of the oslo to very excited about that prospect. Be i get what you're saying christian about it. Being a bit of a bummer. To to hear that they will no longer be the lead developer on any kind of game creation. Rob you Inside a developer. All the time what. What is your your take on. This is the kind of thing that would be disheartening to a group to to visions themselves or do they see it as potentially an opportunity to probably a little bit of both The thing that bums me out. The most is sort of losing vicarious visions v as it's colloquially known in the games industry as as a brand like air studio that has a very long history. They've been around for a very long time. One of the few coast studios in albany new york which is rare So them to sort of lose their identity and just become you know a blizzard new yorker or whatever blizzard east Is just a bummer. Just from just from a name standpoint It does. I mean they do good work though so i think ultimately for the security of the people working the studio is probably a good thing it ensures longevity that those people will have jobs and projects at work on whether or not. It's the projects that those folks were hoping to work on if they were developing internally typically studios are always trying to develop things internally especially smaller studios sports support studios. They wanna like make their own. Ap eventually that's probably the goal of every studio. Imagine sure and so losing that for now. is probably. There's probably some stink to it. But i would also say like if they continue to prove themselves doing this. There's no reason why. I wouldn't think that they might be handed. Something in the future that may be as a blizzard. Ip and maybe they make a new game with one of those ip's

James Comey and Truth in Government
"Joe klein joins us now to talk about a new book. From james comey. It's called saving justice truth. Transparency and trust. Joe thanks for being here screwed to be with you. All right joe. You don't need any introduction but for those who are not familiar with. Joey is a former writer for the new yorker former columnist for time magazine author of many many books including perhaps most famously when that did not appear with his byline primary colors And a follow up novel running meat and this week he reviews for us at james. Comey's second book so the obvious question. I have to ask i is. How does this book differ from his previous book. Well it doesn't differ very much at all actually except for one thing. He rehearses all of the confrontations he had with donald trump in both books but in the second book he places that in the context of the need for truth and transparency in government. Which i think is a valuable thing. The book is the repetition of the first book but it's not an insignificant repetition because of the the context that he now placed it so the first book higher loyalty was kind of hybrid memoir both from his earlier days as a prosecutor in the department of justice and then for his brief period at the doj under trump but it was also kind of manifesto about justice. It feels like on the surface this new book saving justice is kind of exactly the same thing. Well yeah it is. It is the same thing and it's obviously something that cody feels very strongly about. But i think you know the important thing here is his view of justice and his view of the fbi remember he was the fbi director. Whom trump fired because he allowed the russian investigation continue which resulted after he was fired in the hiring. A bob muller as special investigator but komi has a very distinctive view of justice. And i and its ecclesiastical he sees the members of the justice department all the way down to assisted. Da's out in the country as being part of a sacred priesthood sworn to absolute honesty to complete probity to conducting the business in entirely facts based and nonpartisan manner and you can see how that might conflict with donald trump right. Does he talk about what's happened at the department of justice since his departure. He doesn't talk about that all that much except to say that it has been corrupted by trump trump spent the last four years trying to make it into a partisan weapon to go after his enemies in. Kobe is appalled by that. One of the things that you do in your review is draw the distinctions between trump's view of justice and company's point of view. Is that something that komi himself dozen. The boker was that you. He doesn't to a certain extent. But i teased it out a little bit from me. The most important thing that is kind of gone overlooked about trump if anything can be said to have been overlooked is his view of the world which came out in the second debate with joe biden where he said only low. Iq refugees showed up for their refugee hearings in other words. The smart ones absconded. Only stupid people abide by the laws. Smart people get around it. Only stupid people pay off their creditors. Smart people stiffen and that is donald trump's operating philosophy and unfortunately it seems to be the operating philosophy a lot of his followers and that stands in direct contravention of commes operating philosophy. Which is you gotta tell the truth. I don't think you could find two more temperamentally opposite. People trump and komi. But what's interesting at least in the little bit of this book that i read it seems is a slight shift in tone from the last book i mean in part it seems like he's he is trying to draw contrast he opens up the book with donald trump sort of leaning back in his chair and telling him that putin showed off to him apparently about russia having the best prostitutes in the world. And he's telling that james comey. Yeah that would not go over very well. Comas is a religious catholic and And as i said he's religious about the notion of justice and truth. I mean he tells a story about his early days as a us district attorney where he was working a drug case and he had a government informant named vinny and it turned out that they put vinnie in the witness protection program and vinnie took the opportunity to get married. The problem is that he was also married in his former life which meant he was now a bigamist which is a crime and komi says that it was his absolute responsibility. Even though the bigamy had nothing to do with the drug case in question to tell the other side the defendant's lawyers that vinnie was a bigamist. And that shows you the degree to which komi will go in the defense of the truth almost to the point of myopia. I

If you're around reporters several of whom have now caught the corona virus well, yes, and and trump obviously is. Potentially. An even greater liability to the people around him. If he was holding that under wraps for twenty four hours or something like that. I mean I I just. I don't know I. Don't know it does seem like. The narrative that we got. And I apologize for the tin foil hat coming on the narrative that we got from the beginning it. If I found I'll just say if I found out in six months negative Bob, Woodward's next book or whatever expose. We get that that hope Hicks was a patsy would not be surprised. Well, I don't quite know how to interpret that hope was patsy. That's that seems to be borrowed from another conspiracy there but I'm. David on record.

They will be twelve feet apart instead of six feet apart because that's how we react to this week's news pence at this point is the torch bearer of the trump campaign. I mean he's it the only person capable of traveling. So we will see. What happens we've got a live reaction show here on Wednesday night. I cannot wait to see how this week's news is filtered through that debate I. Imagine we'll see the heroic treatment of trump for Mike. Pence that we've talked about it'll be very interesting to see how Kamala Harris handles us, and when we listen this is the most this is the the most dire. PODCAST will probably ever do or or one of them. I mean this has been searing steering death. Don't. Make those kind of predictions. Subject matter subject subject matter wise I mean this is getting our of staring death in the face and we've all been doing that for seventy two hours. It has to be said that vice presidential debate.

But should we read into the fact that he had been yesterday and today he was not on oxygen so he has not been on during this his Cova treatment. He's he's not on oxygen right now. that. Did Not sound trustworthy. And it leads to this almost comic episode where minutes later we get a report from an anonymous trump official. The basically contradicts everything Conley just said the anonymous trump official says the president's vitals over the last twenty four hours were very concerning and the next forty eight hours will be critical in terms of care. We're still not on a clear path to a full recovery new guess what that anonymous official turned out to be Mark Meadows. Trump's chief of staff who was sitting there when Conley was giving the earlier press conference. And afterwards, meadows calls over a group of White House reporters and says I want to do something off the record. I WANNA. Tell you this off the record. There was one problem a camera was running. And that footage went up very quickly on twitter and immediately became clear who the previously unnamed source was. So to the question I was asking you about earlier how sick is the president you now have conflicting reports from the president's doctor and the president's chief of staff. Switches not terribly unusual right for the trump administration but man in a situation like this. Yikes. Well, I mean obviously everything comes from the top and and no one should be too surprised to for that but but without even getting to. Accusatory yet. The clip from the present that you played at the top of the show where he said, you know he he he went to school by getting corona virus or. Whatever the real school he closed by saying I'm going to tell you about it later or whatever, which is just you know which you just. Like trump I wanna one. We're GONNA. Do we beautiful new health health insurance plan? We'll tell you about my tax returns will be released as soon as the audit is complete. Yes. I mean it's just like the tone and tenor of A. This is not administration that we should expect more of, but if the administration were interested in reflecting something in in in in seeming like they were being more honest now they have to sound they have to act they have to. Present themselves differently than they have for the past four years because. The expectation for a lot of Americans is that they're going to be dissembling relying the whole way through even the supporters people sit back and slap their knees guffaw the way the trump treats the media times you know and that's That's not. I mean, I don't know if you WANNA say can't do that now. But like it, the lies just seem really really. Just detrimental to our country right now, he can't do that now, but he will do that now and there was no. There was no real suspense that they were not going to level with the American people about his condition I, mean come on Would they pick this one moment even though this is As serious or more serious than anything they've dealt with in the last four years. There's no way they were going to start. Now the chance of that especially since as we would later find out, donald trump was watching the news. And was angry at Mark Meadows who then went on to Fox to praise trump's unbelievable improvement contradicting the on his own message on the day I'm sort of fascinated by like why mark meadows gave that gloomy briefing to the press. I was listening to Maggie Haberman of Peter Baker on the daily today, and they sort of portrayed it. As Mark Meadows thought that information should be out there like thought that there was some sort of bigger duty to the country or the media or American people are all the above to say then But. That was just. I. Guess You know an in and if they they would be in a position to know whether that was the answer but that's sort of floored me right? Did he why did he decide to tell the truth? At that moment was he was he really. So struck by the artifice of that doctors press conference. That he needs to go out and completely contradict what the what the president's personal physician just said. There's there are photos there were photos of him. I did while the doctor speaking kind of just sitting on the sideline with his hands you know and I. I don't know. You know I think we were all sort of exhausted from saying that people in the trump administration needs to be the grownups in the room or whatever I mean. We that was nice. reframe for the first two years of the presidency but. People do seem to be sort of infected by trump. Ns and they get to the trump White House. But but you know attended by the. Oh God now but they do. But you know it's not the idea that Mark Meadows might have a line in the sand or I'm Just. More reaction to one thing that he suppressed for the past year whatever that's it's very feasible. This is a really incredible moment in our country's history and to see a doctor physician of all people to bare just bullshitting. The press and the American public GOT RATION OUT OF Everybody that I know I mean everybody that. So many people that we all writing post online that he got a response out of Mark Meadows. It's not too surprising. Trump responded to Meta's appearance on Fox News I by tweeting. I'm feeling well, and then later posting a rambling four minute video to twitter that included this. We're going to beat this corona virus or whatever you WANNA call it. And we're going to beat it soundly. So many things have happened. If you look at the therapeutics which I'm taking right now some of them and others coming out soon, that are looking like frankly the miracles if you WanNa know the truth miracles people criticize me when I say that we have things happening that look like they're miracles coming down from God.

When asked why he has Saturday briefing was not accurate. To good question so I was trying to reflect the the the upbeat attitude that the. Team the President of course of illness has had Didn't want to give any any information that might steer the the course of illness in another direction and in doing. So came off that we're trying to hide something wasn't necessarily true. And so have have it. Wasn't necessarily true that we were trying to hide some it might have been true and in fact, it was true. Also didn't you love his phrase and they want to give you any information that might steer the course of illness in another direction. I spent way too long thinking about this. That does choice of words, right? I mean. It practically you would assume that. The idea is you gotta stay upbeat to keep you know patients spirit because that can affect the outcome but..

"Yeah I mean you know? You try to read as much into it as possible in real time. Right I mean the fact that he was walking, you know obviously under his own power spoke volumes but that he was going and and and you know clear sort of lack of enthusiasm, you could read that a million different ways man of stopping to talk to.

It was there was it was definitely lean. Definitely had a just an odd spector. I. Mean I'm just I'm just so unusual and you also think just in terms of Donald Trump at this point in the White House trying to project strength. It's SORTA raises the obvious question of who is he and they Trying to project strength to. and. The answer is a bunch of people, right? There's anybody in the administration. That would sort of get the idea in their head that maybe trump needs to cede power even temporarily to Mike Pence which presidents have done in the past when they are when they're facing a medical situation, there's other countries. That might look at this and say oh. Wow. The present a United States is going to the hospital right including our adversaries around the world. Then, as you mentioned when you talk about being politically charged issue, there is the matter of voters. You know this is a guy who has run a campaign. Almost centrally based on the idea that Biden was a feeble old man who was not well enough to be president. And now here is Donald Trump walking very slowly to get on a helicopter that's going to take him to the hospital. All those things have to be mixed in there. Right as the White House just desperately tries to project the idea that this now don't worry just an abundance of caution justice small thing. He's okay he's GonNa be fine. We wake up Saturday David with the same question we had Friday. How sick is the president? Well, that day Conley trump's -sition flanked by doctors in white coats gives a press conference in which she says various versions of the president is feeling fine. He also does the Great Hospital Cliche he'd love to go home right now. Just we're we're making him stay. We're making him stay, but he's ready. He's ready to walk out of here right now.

"Big bountiful personality. Either obviously Bob I gue- made a decision. That James was not the person he was gonNA put in a major role at Disney. I assume I think that's what happened. Now you save at Rupert sold to Disney. Because he he knew Fox couldn't rival. Newcomers like net flicks. Is it possible that he also sold because he didn't think his kids were capable of running the whole company without him? I suspect he didn't make a termination. First of all group is mother died injured in three which he thinks this young. He's like chose ICAL. He doesn't see himself Perish time soon and so he thinks he will have a hand overseeing his company for for a long time. I think he has confidence in lock. I mean I must tell you I when I initially interviewed Laughlin. When he was at the Post I did not how smart he was and and I've watched them a make a number of presentations. Since and he's he's not a dope he knows for he seems to be on top of things so I could believe the Murdoch is looking at a son saying I got a stag in here. He can run this after me now is is is. Lachlan is smart is James or Elizabeth. I don't think so but he. He has a really good personality. We spoke before about Rupert's obsession with having his own news network after the Disney deal went through that News Network Fox News. We've been talking about was the biggest piece of the Murdoch Empire that remained in Rupert's possession. Why couldn't he bear to part with Fox News? Know it goes back to what I said about. What gives them the most joy in his empire. It's IT's headline. He loves BEING INVOLVED IN SHAPING WHAT. The public thinks in supporting candidates opposing candidates. He's done that throughout his career. And in if you go back to Australia or England Rupert Murdoch's newspapers have endorsed both conservative candidates and liberal candidates in both countries and they've done the same in this country. Initially he supported. Jimmy Carter a Democrat. That burdock is flexible. I mean he has political convictions but the flexible based on his business interests. So I know We've said how Rupert plans to essentially live forever But if we can for a minute imagine a world say ten years from now where Rupert Murdoch is no longer with us. What do you think his legacy will be? You know I asked him. That question Both in ninety five profile in last November at a conference where he he was being interviewed a at lunch and in the period after the first question. I said Mr Murdoch which legacy how do you want to be remembered? And know he just gave a patter patter of you know for building networks building news billing business and but we're I concluded when I concluded that twenty thousand were profiling nine hundred ninety five. Was that his legacy as a businessman. His legacy is profound. I mean he's been. He's had an amazing impact on the way you do things. And his boldness doing things But his legacy in the news. Business is a dastardly one. I mean you think about for instance. The first television gossip enterprise which is now dominant. You know where you attack people and stuff was something called the current affair. Who is behind Karner Fair? Rupert Murdoch were Fox. News is done to POLA. L. Polarized country is profound and and the new post or is papers. Anger the hacking scandal stuff. He doesn't have a legacy that you you would proudly tell your grandkids you know. Look at the look of the great things that didn't John was. Yeah you could tell. His grandkids at I was successful as a businessman in journalism. You can tell your grandkids that I had a lot of power because journalists. But you can't tell you kids you in the journalism business in new events a professional journalists. You can't say that and that's a mark a black mark. Yeah you know that speaking of legacy that it just occurred to me. Is he involved in philanthropic work? Is there a Murdoch School of journalism anywhere that you know of no? I'm laughing because I mean I've never. I'm not aware of film Samanta interview being something. That is disgusted. The breakfast table in the Murdoch House. I could be wrong. I mean he could be doing stuff While not aware of. I don't want to be unfair to the guy was the ignorant but usually if someone is doing major philanthropic things in their big public figure the way. Barak as you would know it so my last question in this post rupert world. We just discussed which could be ten years from now or fifty depending on how he decides to go Where do you see his kids? Do you see them continuing to be kind of walking on their own paths or do you see them kind of joining forces together. What do you? What do you imagine that would look like? I don't imagine them joining forces together but on the other hand if one of the things that solidifies Murdoch's control over twenty th century Fox and newscorp which to corporations that he's created is what Murdoch is is at the helm people trust him because he has a long lifelong record of success in building things making people money now after of Merlin is gone if the company seems to falter under. Lock on. You could imagine that couple of things might happen. One is shareholders might rebel and say. Hey wait a second. We have to either bring in a new. Co or sell the company. Or You could also imagine that the family members meaning James and analytic and maybe the younger daughters who by then might be you know in their twenties would say. Let's come together and and make this work. I think it's more likely that the former would happen than ladder but who knows and imparts depends on how well twenty first Century Fox and News News Corp is a more endangered enterprise. Because it's it's heavily reliant on on print newspapers and Oppor- Elba Shire's now they have some other investments that are that are reasonably good but the profit margins at at News Corp the newspaper side of the business a very slim compared to twenty th century Fox. So if you look at Morlock for instance. He loves the New York Post. Well he probably since he bought the post in nineteen seventy six. My guests is he's probably lost a couple of billion dollars amount investment but it's a good investment because to give some influence political and business power but will his successors on his board that follows him no longer under the control of this vibrant. Big Personality. Murdoch will they go along? Will they say hey wait a second? Why are we investing? All this money in newspapers will losing a shirt here and newspaper declining all over the world in Australia and England and the US. But let's get out of this and without Murdoch to put his hand up in. Stop the You know. The company might be endangered of having to sell his beloved newspapers. Ken Thank you so much for your time.

"If or possible to share power among three people. They'd have to better relationships than the Murdoch children with each other and he knows that so his logic is probably correct. Logic that you needed to choose Murdoch wants to keep a family company. He built it and he wants it to stay a Murdoch company. One thing that strikes me about all of them are children is that they seem to have this. Yoyo. Relationship With News Corp. Do you see them coming back at any point in the future. I would be surprised James was back. I guess you know my inflammation I have been touched Lisbeth When I profile Moraga time and if you ask me that question back when I profiled her I will say I did not think she will ever become reporter news score for Twenty First Century Fox. That could be changed now. I don't I don't know but publicly you see no evidence of that. I mean she's not part of the company in any way and nor James. Today both of them got an enormous amount of money on the sale to Disney in two billion dollar range. They can do what they want. And they're free they don't have to you know. Elizabeth James Never agreed with don't agree with the Fox News Network does they probably don't agree with with supporting. Donald trump that sets them apart from their father and and brother lock speaking of Elizabeth. You wrote a very candid. Piece on her And Her relationship with her dad and she talked about her feelings about her brother's the family business. How did you get her to open up with you? I mean I've always thought that the key to being a a reasonably decent journalist is a good listener. Be having humility to listen on the assumption that you don't know the answer and so and when you and I. I'm a reasonably agreeable person. I'm not I don't walk around with fire coming out of my eyes and ears when I talk to people I I can reasonably charming and and I like people I mean I generally do and I'm reasonably optimistic person so you meet with someone and again go back to what I said earlier. You know you you carrying the the badge of the New Yorker which is a lot of bad as carry or book that you doing so you. You're doing a long form you're not just ineffective quick hit or quick news source and you essentially saying as someone. I WANNA spend a real large amount of time with you and this is not a single interview. We're talking about many many interviews trying to send you in that first interview you do with at least what I do. In the first interview I usually begin by talking about their jobs and and people talking and and they like talking about themselves into what what the end. What made them who. They are in their parents or role they played and stuff. And you would think is being manipulated by doing this at all. I mean this some the most valuable things you you do it the information you you draw from those early interviews about their lives. I remember for instance when I covered the Microsoft antitrust trial in nineteen ninety and I interviewed the judge Jackson and one of the things to Jackson said to me when we talked about the first. Four hours was about his biography in his life and he told me that when he grew up his father was a civil servant and his father convinced him that it was it was noble to serve in the government so when. I became a young lawyer. I was at a join the Nixon administration and I supported Richard Nixon when he ran for president in one thousand nine hundred sixty eight and became one of his lawyers after he was elected in nineteen sixty eight. I thought Watergate happened. And we learned that Nixon Richard Nixon. My President he said lied to. The country lied to me. And he said that was shocking. Big thing for me in in my life that some would lie like that and then you connect that as slanted to the Microsoft trial where you had bill gates the founder and head of Microsoft brilliant man who made a terrible mistake in the way. He handled antitrust trial. He was very arrogant and actually very young. I said did you connect in any way Bill Gates's deposition to or Nixon lie. He said absolutely so what I realized and only could realize it because I had done that biography interview with him earlier that when he saw Bill Gates's deposition he was really looking Richard Nixon and none of the recently concluded. The Microsoft was not telling the truth and was guilty of what they said. They weren't which is antitrust. Violations was because of that debt because of his experience as a young lawyer.

Because he was the one that ended up being put up the helmer. What what gives you that idea that? He's the favourite. I several things relate to that one is Lachlan. Politically is political theaters. On environment or trump or or conservatism is closer to Rupert Son. James's are Elizabeth's who outside the their business second? Lack loan is a very charming guy and he has good personality. He's a much more friendly Hugging Kinda Guy. James is very reserved and Murdoch. Is this markets very murdoch. Has We'll want. It may be at times and he's a key can be a killer in terms of firing people and stuff like that but luckily has charm and his wife has charm not saying that the James has none or his wife has none but not in the same category as Lockwood. And so I think those things is that Lachman is closer to Murdoch's political views a and B Lachlan personality wise has a warmth and the is more appealing to the interesting thing. Elizabeth the daughter is an extraordinary talent and extraordinary personality with great warmth. But there's an argument that some would make that that a woman doesn't make it in the Murdoch Empire but the contradiction to that is a Murdoch has had a number of female executives start with Rebecca Brooks in England today who are very prominently placed in very powerful in the Murdoch Empire. So Rupert always made it clear that he wanted one of his kids to inherit the empire. Why does he care so much for to be just one? Well I think he wants them all in in there but I think his view of management. And it's probably correct. You can have a a triple headed monster running making decisions. You need one decision maker.

"Hi Ken. It's so great to speak with you. Thank you how are you doing today? I'm doing great. I'm just writing away and pleasurable interlude. Okay great so we'll just jump right in Back in ninety five zero two along profile on Rupert Murdoch in the New Yorker. Can you tell me what you remember about reporting on that story? I had had a history with Murdoch when he did a hostile takeover of New York magazine and the village voice was contributing editor at New York and a columnist for the village voice. This is nineteen seventy seven and we went on strike hoping that we block him acquiring the publications and we lost most of his quit so when I started by New York a Gig in ninety two took four months before I wrote anything and went out and interviewed leaders in the media world to find out what was on their mind. What do they think the future held? Where were they going? And one of the people who allowed me to come visit him was with Murdoch and I wound up spending about four months reporting a what became twenty thousand work peace and of course of it the reporting I spent about ten days total days with him and we probably had dinner six or seven of those nights just the two of us and I might tape going in and he had never done that kind of immersive reporting and what happens naturally when someone's spends enormous amount of time with you when you ask them about their childhood and their parents growing up in what their dreams were they come to think of you as certainly friendly and when the piece appeared Rupert Murdoch didn't think it was very from me and he's never Sense what was he like up close? He's charming. He's a good listener and as a reporter. I don't WanNa talk for which I want to listen to him. He was he was an engaging person he knew all the time that I have his journalism. I mean this before Fox News I which I have four but it was the new Pope Giac poor and and what he's done with the tabloids in both London and Australia as a businessman. He's an enthralling character. He inherited very little from his father. Two newspapers one of which he sold and then he built this worldwide media empire bigger than any media empire is ever built. I would sit in his office as the fly on the wall and everything was on the record. You find a lot of these people when they get to be that level of success that very confident that they can persuade you as to what they do is good. He certainly fit that Bill. Nothing inhibited him from speaking his mind on anything the only time he ever asked me to put something off the record was when he said to me that he supports a woman's right to an abortion if she's raped or under certain circumstances and she he said you know my wife. Fan is then second wife was is and was a devout Catholic totally committed to opposing abortion. And she would just be so upset she read and I. I didn't put that in. Everything else was on the record. While I remember sitting stunned that he would do this in front of a reporters. I have my recorder on my notes. Every day he would call the business editor at The New York Post and he would tell him a mate. I think Michael Eisner resent the head of Disney is going to do the following thing the next day when you read the New York Post. You read a story. According to a well-placed source in Hollywood Michael Eisner plans to do the following at Disney. The Wall place was and it was his advantage to save that guy in your entire empire television. You have satellite TV. You have broadcast network. Local stations newspapers magazines. What's the thing you most enjoy Mr Murdoch? And he says no contest he says being in the newsroom rolling ice lease and dictating headlines that the New York Post. That's what I love to mate. So there's a great line in the peace where you say that rupert quote moves more swiftly than his rivals takes bigger risks and never gives up. Can you explain to me? What exactly sets him apart. One of them is that he's an owner is not a Moi. I mean he doesn't get his stock goes down isn't have some hostile a hedge fund coming in and saying we'll we've got to get rid of He has ability to make decisions on his own. And that's an enormous power and people who are employees managers. There are always looking over their shoulder. The stock market a hedge funds hostile takeover candidates. Who might throw them out looking at their bonuses. They don't take the chances that someone like. Murdoch guys so Let's talk a little bit about Fox News when you're spending time with him he was trying to buy CNN He was. It sounded like he was jealous of CNN. He wanted that twenty. Four seven TV news cycle It was a medium that he couldn't figure out how to crack. Why was he so desperate to get into this medium? He loves news and HE LOVES NEW SEVERAL REASONS ONE HE. He worked as a newspaper man as as a young man but be he. He's also a guy who loves the ability of news to shape opinions and he has strong opinions. He can be flexible about them. But another season. Conservative is a libertarian in many ways and and he's against big government In less give him what he wants out of it. And and so he's you know he saw Fox News as an opportunity to help sway government. I mean if you're a media mogul who's the elephant you most worry about. Who's the competition you most worry about? Facebook is not worried about another social network. Google is not word another search firm but the thing they worry about is the government regulators could come in and really upset their applecart and governments a big elephant now so he always maintained. It was important to have good relationships with any has with that power. Has We would be remiss to not talk about the phone hacking scandal for talking about Rupert. Murdoch what's interesting to me about? It is how it played out kind of like a family drama. How did the phone hacking saga changed the Murdoch Family Dynamic? Do you think it changed the margins. But I don't think fundamentally did James was in the middle of the hacking scandal. Critic said that he should have stopped that he should have known what was going on. James was brought back to the states to play a major role in it and I think basically father was trying to get him out of the firing line. Eventually came back to work for Rupert and so the question was which the two sons James Lachlan is Murdoch on. Choose to run the company. Basically James was the CEO. Under under Rupert. The chairman and lock Glenn was like number two and then came the Disney deal. Because what happened. There is murder who proudly built this world wide empire. Suddenly is looking at. The reality was happening in the television world and the movie world. Movie theaters were shrinking. Studios had very slim profit margins. Net flicks was spending ten billion dollars. A year to create programs for Netflix Fox was only spending two billion dollars a year. So how do I compete with? The net. Flicks is an apples and amazons of girl that have cash all the stock value behind the company. I can't compete with the only company that maybe could compete with them. Is this money. So what does he do with? James is push and lock them was not as much an advocate of this deal but he pushes and sells to Disney. He didn't sell his network and it didn't sell Fox News. But he sold the studios television studios and film studios. The thought was that maybe James would take a position within Disney. Or WHO's Murdoch Rupert? GonNa choose between James Motlanthe to run the new twenty first century Fox and Murdoch did Sophie's choice and he chose Lockley his favorite son the relationship within the family. I don't think is close between James and Lisbeth Elizabeth and the others. Now how how is I? I really can't. I can't attest to that. I don't know but Clearly it's a it's a it's a splintering of that of that family in many ways.

That's kind of important and then pursuant to that That only took five five years for the Department of Homeland Security to come up with a pilot program and their pilot program was the Global Entry Program so dhs promulgated needed a rule which is in the Federal Register Seventy Four F R five nine nine three two in two thousand nine to pilot what became the Global Entry Tree Program then a mere three years later we decided that we were GonNa roll out that Global Entry Program too. Every airport in the United added states in two thousand twelve. That's seventy seven Federal Register. Five six nine. Oh God all that so you know Oh eight years from law to implementation but You know the the the wheels of administering airports churn slowly I had to do go into into the DMV and get a different ID with my license now is from nine eleven yes one hundred percent. It's all from nine eleven and that and by the way we are not talking the real I D act which is a separate piece of legislation but interacts right so okay because this is not there is no power? It's a it's a really good question. There is no power under the real. I D act for. Da just to do what they're doing because these New York licenses do not qualify for real. I D they say not for federal use on the so it absolutely is beyond the power of the federal government and particularly the Department of Homeland Security regulate which again would be an interesting argument for a pro-federalist conservative judiciary to want to take up to say that you could regulate purely interstate intrastate commerce and and regulations by the the state of New York so as a result of that the rules were codified in the CFR eight cf are two three five. Point twelve describes exactly how the global entry program is to be authorized is to be administered and it says this this is the critical part. sub-section b one says the following individuals who hold a valid machine readable passport a valid machine readable law. US lawful permanent resident card or other appropriate travel documents may apply to participate in global entry. subsection one US citizens US nationals and US lawful permanent residents absent any of the disqualifying factors described in paragraph B. Two and. Then be two sets forth those disqualifying factors right. So it says if you're a citizen and you have a passport you get to apply then what what disqualify unless you're disqualified by what. What disqualifies you an individual is eligible to participate if CB P which is a sub division of Homeland Security at its sole discretion which might lead you to think that okay they can do that? Determines is that the individual. That's the key that's the key phrase and then here are the basic warrants potentia presents a potential risk for terrorism criminality criminality or otherwise is not a low risk traveler. The risk determination will be based in part dependent applicant's ability to demonstrate past compliance with laws which include One one providing false information on the application to arrest records three found in violation of any customs immigration or agriculture regulations for is being investigated by any federal state or local law enforcement agency five is inadmissible to the US under applicable immigration laws. Six is known or or suspected of having been engaged in or aiding terrorism or seven cannot satisfy. CB P of their low risk status or meet other program requirements. So I know that's a lot of legalese. But let's put all that together. What that means is under gigs assisting procedures? CB P in administering the global entry program must evaluate US citizens on an individual by individual basis. They cannot say oh yeah well. You're from New York. So therefore we're not going to consider the application the the the policies and procedures in place the rulemaking making made by the Department of Homeland Security prevents them from doing that and the authorization under the statute. It's why I went through the whole history and and read that particular provision of eight. USC section thirteen sixty five be the the enabling legislation that gave the right to set the rules in the first place requires the collection of data and applicability to all applicants quote regardless of the port of entry where such categories of individuals entered the United States so it is one hundred percent clear that this authorization and this letter is a ultra virus. It is beyond the power of the Department of Homeland Security. Due to the extent that it is considered new rule-making it would not comply with the Administrative Procedure Act and even if it did comply with all that it would violate the constitution. It would violate the equal protection clause us as Lacking a rational basis for all of the reasons that we've set forth so and let me let me layer one more thing on top of of that which is in addition to being patently irrational because the license provided by the State of New York is is not usable as of August twenty twenty in order to get on an airplane in addition to that the office of Inspector General did an an audit of the D H s and the global entry program that concluded in June of Twenty nineteen contained six action items and and see BP agreed to comply with those action items and zero of those action items right in terms of documenting massive failures in the Global Entry System Zero of those action items had to do with illegal aliens getting driver's licenses. I will link the document the show. It's you can search it for yourself control left and look for DMV motor vehicle driver license or any other related term. You will not find it. Other than as a description description of complying agencies in appendix of the Document it absolutely responds to a non existent problem. That is not unique to you. New York work that cannot possibly.

"Hello it's Ilya Marritz Co host of Trump Inc Donald trump is the only recent accident to not release his tax returns the only president you can pay directly by booking a room at his hotel he shreds rules sometimes literally he didn't hear acas worth the tour memos or things and just throw them in the trash so took something from White House staff look you can't do that. Trump inc an open investigation into the business of trump from PROPUBLICA and WNYC subscribe wherever you get your podcasts this is the New Yorker radio hour thanks for being with us today I'm David Ramnik for reasons that are pretty obvious Richard Nixon's name has been coming up all the time in the news lately and one of the most acute portraits of the late president was an essay by Michael Korda that ran in the New Yorker in nineteen ninety four quarter I got to know Nixon pretty well during the long years after the ex-president left Washington there is a theory that great men have large heads and prominent features think of Charles de Gaulle and his nose LBJ and his ears FDR and his jaw and by this standard if no other Richard Nixon had reached greatness his head was enormous is jowls and ski jump knows where Justice cartoonist had always portrayed them his is dark in penetrating most striking of all was his voice a deep rumbling Bosso Phunto rather like an avalanche the distance Michael Korda Nixon weren't exactly friends quarter says editor he worked on the books that Nixon published with Simon and Schuster and in nineteen eighty nine he was invited to a dinner at Nixon's home in Saddle River New Jersey and on that night it turned out the former president was conducting a little shout of diplomacy of his own something very much on our minds right now here's Dylan Baker reading from Michael Curtis Account of that night with Gregg Star as Richard Nixon within a mile or so of New Jersey Commercial Strip full of mini malls service stations Nixon's house was tucked away as secretly Shangrila behind high dense growths of trees and hedges it was impossible for any casual and you'd find rather like any number of cul de sacs in Belair but without palm trees Nixon staff had presented with careful instructions on how to reach the house but it seemed a little puzzled that I was driving myself their puzzlement became clear as I pulled up before the entrance a row of limousines to one side made it evident that Nixon's guests tended to be driven by chauffeurs yes I had driven my silver Porsche. The courtyard was a blacktop space big enough for a good sized motel the security people at the door seemed uncertain what to make of the car the weather because it was frivolous or foreign I wasn't sure and inside I found most of my fellow guests milling about the entrance hall looking suitably solemn I recognize Robert Aplin up a large jovial looking man who had been in the limelight as a Nixon backer and personal friend during Watergate there was the CEO of Archer Daniels Midland an assistant secretary of state and a former U S representative to NATO there were also three Chinese gentleman all with the bland inscrutable faces of professional diplomats the senior of them was Hans Shoe China's depart eating ambassador there were no women present it was to be a stag dinner Nixon appeared at the top of the stairs at exactly the moment we had been summoned for he descended halfway stretched out his arms justice he used to do when he was campaigning with a broad smile gentleman the good news is bar is open as I was shortly to discover drinks in the Nixon household were not to be taken or even held lightly they were Sir served in immense heavy tumblers and every time guest took a sip Nixon who had an eagle is a host would attract the Butler attention it better fresh up Mr Cora's drink I ordered one of his famous dockery's made with almost no sugar the recipe for which was said to be one of his more closely guarded secrets the president claim to make the best dachary ever and I can report that it lived up to expectation nations.

"Did your lunch but I I can't help it. Ask what is the mood like in Washington this week. I it seems to me like it's it hasn't been this way in a very long time time. I saw somebody referring to it as shock tober pretty silly but Washington has is these weeks days when the wheels feel like they're coming off and that's usually in the early days of a scandal or investigation when Pundit Information Shen starts to break free and I feel like usually you know it could end up being wrong but usually in Washington. There's a pretty strong conventional wisdom and Dan people have a sense of how the politics of something are going to shake out and here you will run into people who will allow that they could see it both ways as at the beginning of impeachment could be the day that Donald Trump won reelection and you can get to tell you that and yet nonetheless feel they need to scene. You can have Republicans save opposite. Which is you know? I know that's been the conventional wisdom but we're really terrified that this is gonna be awful for us. You know if I'm a congressional Republican. How do I see a decent outcome for me and the party here. Is there a template of defense that they can look to historically well. These seem to be quite upset just that there's not been a more vigorous defense and obviously it does vary by district but most of the Republicans right now now. They aren't even defending trump on the facts they. There's a lot of shouting about the whistle blower about a coup in progress there's there's a lot of demands to investigate Joe Biden to investigate Muller and in the basis on his report basically to the office skate and to throw up kind of chaff but when you strip it away it's interesting that they're not really defending trump so there was a routine on Saturday night live in which was sitting here was a kind of typical Washington panel. You forgive me and this one is saying it's a turning point and this is horrible this horrible and in this kind of wised up African American academic says yes but it's not going to matter and this sense in that I mean how many scandals those have we had. We've had hush money payments to porn stars. We've had the mullahs report which has ten indications of possible obstruction of justice. This says now consigned to history. It almost seems. Is there any reason to believe that Donald Trump can't survive this look. I was really really struck to your point. There's a new poll out today. That's getting circulation here. In Washington that would underscore this a monmouth survey that chose it forty percent sound. Republicans believe that trump raised the issue of investigating Joe Biden his son in the phone call with the Ukrainian president. Even though that is actually in the transcript at the White House itself released so I mean propaganda works telling a lie over and over and over again at least enough people start to believe it. US On twitter whether we should call this whole affair Ukraine Gate. has anyone been able to come up with a name that works better yet. It's funny that you mention that I was going to put that in my column this week. I got thousands of responses. Some of my favorite evert were more on contrast. John John Oliver Stupid Watergate Stupid Watergate. A lot of people said that you cranium one on my favorite responsive was Monday on Monday Susan. Thanks so much thank you David. The.
