"Inseminated Are you ready for your insemination Gain is actually dealing with this wild telenovela premise Film scholar Diana Martinez says it was groundbreaking for Jane the virgin to include conversations about abortion particularly because this is a taboo subject within Latino households There's a political divide There's a generational divide Jane's mother had Jane when she was 16 Jane's grandmother is a strict devout Catholic Jane assumes the only reason she's alive is because her grandmother would have forbidden her daughter to get an abortion Turns out her grandmother did suggest her daughter have an abortion Her grandmother tells Jane but I carry that shame in my heart every day It's powerful because it allows for this duality to exist that people of faith can also believe in a woman's choice Balancing different viewpoints is something producer Norman Lear and actress Bea Arthur tried to do when the sitcom mod became the first prime time TV show to address abortion In 1972 not long before roe V wade was decided Maude becomes pregnant at age 47 Oh yes Carol you see on top of everything else I'm pregnant Joke's aside mod agonizes over what to do Ultimately she and her husband decide they are too old to have a child The story also featured a character who is the same age as mod and also pregnant She decides to have the child She.

"I appreciate the gift of laughing as much as i have laughed and i always thought that laughter ed's time to your life i don't know how many hundreds of times i ab- stood behind her to the side two hundred or so people at the show watching them when they're especially in a belly laugh when they're really go following and the human of the species has the habit of coming out of on a for of their seats a little bit. You know half an inch out and coming back down and roy back you see a couple of hundred people doing that and Emphysema more spiritual moment in this lifetime. I don't know what it could be. Have you been chasing that your whole life. Finding that is true or not chasing it just finding it. I mean just understanding gets there and appreciating and loving it because when i talk about the push of the human condition. I'm talking about. It's dan this also it steer sweet. It's enjoyable it's human. I want to understand that that way. You just correct me. Because i think that distinctions pretty interesting the idea of chasing versus finding like what i hear you saying is it wasn't some sort of desperate need. You were trying to fill some issue or trying to scratch. It was lists like Something you were no he. Here's an illustrator. Actually i was on my way to telling this story earlier. And i don't remember what took me in another direction but the night my father was hauled away or a couple nights later. Maybe my mother was selling the furniture and there were people who i didn't know strangers in the house looking at different things and so hard and there was one chap- this moment is indelible in my life and the man his kindness and tenderness put his hand on my shoulder and said well norman. You're the man of the house now. Nine years old. And i'm the man of the house. Now that is fucking funny and totally illustrative of what i mean. I mean it is funny and it's brutal. I'm not surprised that it's something that sits deep for you that you hold onto so tightly because i mean if ever there's a defining moment in a person's life it's that exactly max away. I always read with an appreciation for the gift of understanding. 'cause i'm not sure. Everybody and that circumstance would understand how funny that was how foolish that was. And can you draw like a direct line between whatever it was in you when you were nine. That was able to actually see that that gift that you're talking about. Can you draw a direct line between being able to recognize that and the work that you've done to mysterious army but i understand it was with an occasion in my life and it lived with man in me and in my mind my attitude. I guess i'm asking like a little bit of like a nature nurture question. You know like you have this. Undeniable gift to be able to create worlds and moments that show the foolishness of the human condition in a way that millions and millions of people can understand. Do you think that's the same thing that allowed you when you were nine to realize that. That guy saying you're the man of the house was so fucking funny. I don't think we necessarily well. I'm sure we don't necessarily understand the gifts we've been given until life helps us understand it. Because i was a kid. Depression the biggest conversations we ever had around. The family table was what we could afford. Could my sister get the or. Could i get them this week or sending me on a hot summers night for a quarter of ice cream. Listers think was quarter. Then pint i mean it was a discussion whether we're going to spend the quarter that way. So that's what. When i father gets out of prison and says he's gonna be we've heard trip around the world in a year. That's why that was so sadly funny. I like said on twenty because it reflects light best. The daughter that just left this morning. Hey maggie high switches hearts. Were you say hello to max. Hi maggie mad. Max is doing a series called seventy over seventy this. The secret is he thinks over seventy she just landed a jfk. Or you home by now. She's home with her sons. My grandsons max may have a question for you. You got a question for her. Max hi how are you how are you. This is exactly how. I expected this to go expected to talk to you. This is totally. This is totally what i predicted would have. Here's my question for you. Your dad seems to think that he's been the same exact guy for very very long time. Is that your experience or is he. Does he feel different to you at ninety eight than he did at fifty eight or sixty eight or seventy eight. Oh yes is explained his life experiences. I mean a lot has changed. He had three wives.

"True for you. How long you've been lying in the hammock. Well my father went to prison. When i was nine years old. He was caught selling some fake bonds. Or something i don't know and when he got out. I was living in the head with my grandparents and we went to new york. They pick me up at the railroad station. We went to new york going to new york where we were about to live My sister and my mother and father and i with another family who had also had two children until my father deva job and found apartment and everything else. We will go live with these friends of theirs in that circumstance on the train. My father just had a prison sitting alone for a little while. Said norman the year you're going to be by mitzvah for your through. I'm going to take you and your mother and your sister for a trip around the world will be gone a year and i believe of course everywhere and he'll course believed every board it and there was no chance in the world. This could happen. I didn't know that at that age. But when i started to realize i began to understand what i have long thought of as the foolishness of the human condition you can find everywhere and anywhere. It's all of us not to be on the same level as same degree or same direction as my dad's but i've had a lot about myself over the years where i've seen the foolishness of meiomi human condition. What is that. What's the foolishness of the human condition. Oh to To think the world of somebody who doesn't deserve any and vice versa. Too not understand the worth of this person. Think you're putting up with it and you're not you're benefiting from it instead those ordinary human mistakes and that moment's sitting on the train with your dad when he's saying something that he thinks will happen and you think will happen and you realize now was never going to happen. How does that connect to the hammock. Well it was a moment i lived. It was a moment. I live my my mind just came across a memory site only meta funeral. I don't even remember who's sure no it was but there are sixty eight hundred of us. I don't know standing around a gravesite and a confidence being lowered into the grave and a woman just ahead of me has a niche and scratches harass. It was to me funny as hell. And i thought well is in every moment you know. We did the episode on the family. Where archie comes into his their bedroom. After he's his has gone and the way he touches the pillow that was hers in the bedroom alone after is passing the obviously it. It got to laugh that i was positive it would get not because maybe maybe as much because they needed the laughs and had laughed at him so much before they were not laughing. At that moment that we're laughing at the human condition that the guy they spent so much time understanding nine understanding laughing at feeling for there is sadness and humor and the human condition. And it's there every moment. I'm just trying to really hear what you said. Maybe i'll say it in english says time. Listen i'm slow on the uptake. i i'm trying to. I'm trying to figure it out. You're good on the upton. I see you thinking and i found myself appreciating it a lot. The thing that i want to ask is whether that connection to the human condition your capacity to be on the hammock in those moments whether that's something that you've gotten more and more access to over the course of your life or whether that's just who you are. I think it's some of both. Certainly it's matured me. I have spoken at before. And i wish i had recordings of my articulation of the same kind of thing forty years ago. It's probably richer now or benefits from the years that i've been feeling and thinking about yemen. I wonder how the norman lear that had nine shows on. Tv at once. And i assume was working. All the time was as connected to the hammock as you are now. I have to believe things deepen or grow. You know that's the way. I feel it now is more solid are has or screener lender was all those years ago but i enjoyed. I enjoyed thinking about. I enjoyed talking about it and probably by virtue of your questions. Am i talking to you now right well..

"Norman lear welcome to the show. Thank you so much for doing this. You're welcome max and is it. Okay if i call you norman. please come in armand. You know why. I like that because it's my name. I hate being called jeff. I'll stick with norman. I got all kinds of questions for you. But i was wondering if we could start with your current working life ninety eight years old. You're still working in this industry that he started in and you're still working pretty consistently right. You're making stuff yes. I'm not at this moment. Because the lions closed for all the reasons we understand but hope to get back soon as an stopped the work. We're still building pry. You know projects but can't be shooting them at this moment. Do you feel as creative as ever one hundred percent. You have the same relationship to creativity that you did when you were forty. Fifty sixty seventy eighty. It hasn't changed It hasn't changed in terms of my desire. And i feel anyway of my ability What has changed is the fact that the Sony lot on which raw exists is closed. And i'm only within a couple of weeks of going out for dinner or visiting friends and Having friends come over and so forth spent a long drought. A people lies along drought. I have six daughters. They've been visiting me one and two time. I wanna talk about your kids. I'm interested in relationship to your kids. But i wanna stick with work for a second. Are the stories that you want to tell now. Are those different than they used to be. I don't think so. I don't think so as a good example of that is i. Did a pilot show a great many years ago with two names. I wonder if you ever knew about. But suzanne push. It was a brilliant young actress a great many years ago and james franciscus was a marvelous young actor. Brilliant beautiful young man. And i did it. A pilot with them called brand gold where they played a different couple in love every week. The reason mentioning it now is. I've been thinking about it for the last several weeks. It didn't happen back then. But i think it could happen down. It's an idea like a lot. Do you think it can happen now. Because the world has changed in some way or view just personally not giving up on it and you wanna make the thing happen. No i would i needed then i have now. I mean people's desire for entertainment and care about individuals that are performing for them and so that hasn't changed in my view. And my feelings about work. Has your energy for work changed. I think you have to ask a few observers. It doesn't feel to me like changed. How do you do that. How do you keep doing this work decade after decade like. How do you still have the energy for this. Well i believe there were two little words that we don't pay enough attention to they are over and next when something is over. It's over and we're onto next. If there was a hammock in the middle of those words that would be the best description. I could find of living in the moment that moment between over and next and i like living. I like to think. I live in the moment and And feel that i do here is an amazing statistic. It has taken me almost ninety nine years to meet max. It's true. no. I do not amazing. I've been on this planet for ninety nine years. And i'm meeting you for the very first time. It's taken me all those years to get to you right. You've been walking around doing all of these incredible things in every moment has led to this this. Yes so what of that. Mona's how about that some shit you know. It's the absolute reality is taken every split second of your life to meet me. See this. it's a hell of a hat. This is maybe a hard question to answer. But what does that feel like to you sitting between over next. It's like Understanding that every moment is a new one. I never saw your face before. And here i am looking at it. It the the the crazy thing is i kind of. I don't understand totally the depth and words and a what i'm saying the but i- delighted i delight in thinking holly shed. It took me all these years to get to meet this mac sky and to speak the words. I'm speaking now. I never spoke to him before. How long has that been.

You can think of that have politically incorrect scenes because Disney Plus they after first put in some mornings on some of these now they just outright or getting rid of him like Dumbo was one Peter Pan is another 1 802, 8311.5, John and Manchester. You're on New Jersey one on 1.5. Oso said Anything produced by the Norman Lear more good times, all in the family, the Jeffersons and also old Saturday night line. Mm nuts, you know that. Oh, all the Richard Pryor Chevy chasing That's one of them An answer when they had When they had the weekend that food will know you. Stories turned in June. Curtain and the idea. New England. You know, Dan Equities calling the ignorant slut? No, no, if you could do that anymore, right? Right? Yeah, and you know, and that was really interesting, John, because I mean, it's it's that same show still on. Obviously the cast the changes so many times, But would they write like, Do you see anything like that now? On SNL. I guess I don't keep up with it enough, but probably not. Hey, John, Thanks for your call. Speak of Dan. Accurate doesn't wear blackface in trading places when they're on the train. Uh oh. Wow. I think he does. Plays a Rastafarian. I think he does. You could never do it now do you could never get away with that now. You know, there's probably so many examples of this because this just changed. I'll just mention one more. That's good Last one. You always say that in airplane to two African American men, many scenes the I speak jive when their unintelligible to the white people. Yep. I don't think that would fly to that. No. Holly and Long Valley. You're on New Jersey one at 1.5. Hi. How are you? All right, Holly. I have two ideas. First Allison Wonderland and also stranger things Irish from Wonderland at the end of the movie when the queen was saying heads will roll. That answer when Alice is sitting on the mushroom She's talking about getting bigger or smaller. And so very clear. What am I missing? What is it? What is it politically incorrect about that? Rahl. It's politically incorrect to show Children about RST. Oh, if it's a drug inference, Okay? I got you. And then what was the other thing? You were saying? Stranger things Stranger things. Won't they talk about the underground military bases with the girl? That I think is a politically incorrect. Would not it suggest? Where the court world is okay? Oh, I think it's a little bit of a stretch. Yeah, not really seeing that. But all right, Holly, Thanks for your call. But then again, I never watch the show. Mary in west Windsor. You're on New Jersey. One on 1.5. Hi. I have a couple So Godfather. Bronx tale any of those air showing Italians as you know, mobsters, and that's all they could be. You could go in gone with the wind little figures that makes white women look like they were all Racists. Um, even Tualatin. So everyone from India rides a carpet or is poor like, Well, you know, that did come under quite a bit of criticism for making Arabs look poor and for kind of westernizing Aladdin. Mm hmm. So that that one has come up, Mary. Yeah, If we start looking at, you wouldn't be watching anything but a boy's godfather Goodfellas. I think it's pretty. I think it's okay to make mob movies. I mean, was the Irishman was just that last year two years ago, the problems didn't both here that I guess that that actually has been quite a while. But I know I can't think of the name of the organization. I apologize, but I know that there have been Italian American organizations who have been sensitive about about going back to the God found. Absolutely very. Thank you. Yes. Oh, Those accusations have been leveled before, but like, Yeah, we don't care. We're gonna make it anyway, huh? Chris and Piscataway. You're on New Jersey one a 1.5. Okay, guys, Um, here's blazing saddles. You could never make every settles every state that type. You could think about every group in there from the, um The townsfolk which were all inbred. Um, obviously that the references of Um, you know that the plan that was in there On anything, anything. If you think of it is in that movie, you could never even dream of remaking it. Touch of racism and homophobia. Perhaps Only a little bit not much. That wasn't based on steam of the movie. That wasn't that's not that word began. You know? Well, it's interesting. Even even native Americans to even think about the very beginning when they were chasing after the wagons. Oh, yeah. He ended it and it's interesting because you mentioned you mentioned the clan. Okay, if there's a part of that in blazing saddles because it's a comedy. Then you're on thin ice. If you were doing Mississippi burning I'm sure you could still do Mississippi burning because nobody's making jokes about it. And it's being depicted as a terrible thing. Um, but you cannot make jokes about his angle on chained. They had the Klan in that and Absolutely them look kind of like buffoons with the eye holes. And who cut the islands? Yes, Yes. My wife stayed up late. Wake of those next time. Forget it. I'm not even good. Yeah. Yeah. And that was one. But exactly Within that joking it was that you just said it was making them look like idiots. And so therefore, that was okay to make them look like bumbling fools on. Otherwise it was in a fairly serious dramatic movie, You know? So Yeah, you're right. It's XYZ all depends on the context. All right. So what we're talking about? Is this whole cancel culture. That is. Ah, well, I guess it's your opinion. I mean, you know, I think it's somewhat running amok. But I don't know about you, but they have canceled. They're not going to show Dumbo. They're not going to show Peter Pan, a number of other things like the Aristocats. Swiss family Robinson. It's all been taken away on Disney. Plus because of political incorrectness. How many movies or TV shows can you think of that? You might have a problem with 1 802 +831 a 1.54 30 time for the news..

We lose communication. Welcome back everybody as we move towards our number three Don half. Thank you very much. It's 10 09 Just Lucas Pat, just 10 09 exactly. Here in Boston, Massachusetts. One Monkey night. We've been bay set by rain showers and drenching monsoons in many parts of New England for the last couple of days. Now, I we will get back at some point later this week towards the whole concept of the funding the police I mentioned at the end of last hour, and I really believe this that there was a point in time in this country about 50 years ago. Kind of when Archie Bunker the Satirical all in the comic Norman Lear all in the family comedy. In which there were a lot of Americans were described as a CZ. People would say they are like the country lover. Leave it and we were told back Then you can say lover leave it because Assent is the highest form of protest. Ah, highest form of patriotism. I mean, and we all were cautioned. You can't say to someone you know. Well, believe it, You know you burn the flag. You want to topple the statue or you want to loot whatever we can't say that that's insensitive. So we can't say that. However, however, what we see now goes beyond descent. What we see now really goes towards anarchy. In which again people will do what they want to do. And if you can get rid of the police department's Ah, then people could do whatever they want to do, and you'll have You'll have riots mean that is, I think what is envisioned by some of these folks who are pulling the strings. That is not to say that 90 95% of the people who had been pro testing on out there for the right reasons. Because everyone everyone in this country should be treated equally and fairly. Everyone, whatever their background, whatever their color. Completely. And and when it doesn't happen, and what happened to George Floyd disgraceful. Um does that mean that every police office is perfect? No, of course not. They there are some who are evil, and certainly Derek Shelvin. That the only word to describe him is Evil to do that to another human being. You wouldn't do that. You saw someone in the street doing that to a dog? Um, you, you, you stop him. It stopped him. Why the other police officer did not stop shoving that will come out a try. But again, Ah, like to continue to talk about that, But I want to mix in Another topic. And that is the The incessant desire by President Trump to tweet. Apparently, there was some sort of a protest or ah, a parade of support. For President Trump down at the villages, which is a huge retirement complex in Florida. I have never been there. But I'm told it is huge. And apparently there were people driving golf carts with Trump 2020 signs. And some of the Counter protesters got into it with the folks who was supporting President Trump and The This is a little bit. This were to go to cut 11 1st Rob This is some of the counter protesters. Accusing the trump supporters of Wearing Where's your White hood? You'll hear it here. It's the audio isn't great, but this gives gives you a sense of this. And these were. This is a retirement community. Okay, where people are supposed to go and enjoy their life.

us go through the right out there because we we know that the we are going to be the stars of the show is is that we have been with the other shows and so we try to put on that false humility and there are I say that in a nutshell is are my care my character and I I don't realize how overbearing I am and I enjoy doing it because I get I guess there's also a little bit of that in me I think if I were they just drop that little you know open a little door in your brain this is don't do that or don't say that all this might come out it strikes me you've really made a career out of playing really square people I thank yes I have I but I'm you know I I I was born and raised in Cleveland Ohio I I went to a military prep school I also went to attended and graduated from Virginia military institute so I can kind of relate to that that mentality that the very conservative square mentality which always amused me and what you do and something amuses let you like that you try to mimic that and dress yourself in the internet and in it and do it on time in a performance and it's always interested me so I I. tender I grab one of those characters very very easily I was in spinal tap I have once seen that a lot of people seem to remember I was I played the sergeant who welcomes the the hard rock group spinal tap to the airforce base and people said boy you just grab that that character because I can relate to what I understand I've lived with those people I understand their mentality and I've always enjoyed doing it as a result a lot of people think I am very square I was in the I was in a comedy group called the ace trucking company and we have some very colorful characters and I'm I usually play the anchor guy I was always the boss I was always the the guy who is trying to keep discipline and we were in the dress room one night about a Friday night and one of the guys in the other group started talking in the seasonal it's taken all week for me to talk to you I didn't think I would like you because of what I see her on stage and it upset me very much that the G. that's what people are thinking of me what are we actually hear the scene from spinal tap you are final in the final I don't have a grandmother can bobble Treadwell Lindberg airforce base is your gentleman's first visit villagers fine may I start by saying how thrilled we are to have you here we're such fans of your music and all of your records I'm not speaking of yours personally but the whole genre of the rock and roll citing things are happening and let me explain a bit about what's going on this is our monthly add peas weekend there's a chance I got let down our hair although I see you all have a head start these are guys working fast military must be believing although I shouldn't talk I mean there's been a little shaky so but not get too because they don't think I'm part of the band I'm joking question we go in and I'll show you around what this lightly I think one of the places where you perfected this persona of this great guy who really thinks he's happenin and talented was on Fernwood tonight when you own the sidekick for from from Martin mall and finally tonight was this you know parity of on late night talk entertainment shows absolutely it was an improvisers dream because they gave me this character I was supposed to have been the host the star of this small town for in what do you know the the I played cowboys bill and I'd probably hosted the late night movie and the matinee and I had a probably a game show here's this new sharpie comes in from Miami who is Martin mall and I'm I'm deflated the so it's a perfect character to play you could be get **** you could put all pull out all the stops of of of censoring yourself I was a bit stupid so I anything I said nothing could go wrong with what I said because it fit right into the character since you have made such a career on playing square can you give us some tips on on how to be convincingly square I think you have to keep your eye on one object that is let's get down to business you can be amused what's going about you were in a very offhand that could be one of the tangents yes and if you're a music something you let it be known that your music yes I I I am amused at what you've said and I enjoy a good laugh as well as the next man but let's get back to the point in hand you see the point you can't ever you actually have no sense of humor but the people have the lease as if you are usually the ones who are the first to say I enjoy a good laugh as much as the next man and you know what follows that is box very serious and so that's it you've got to strip away any sense of humor you have and I just know that there's some bottom line there which I've never heard this this site for dinner what the bottom line is getting some job accomplished I guess and IBM and I've always dreaded there happened to be in that atmosphere I found myself in it when I went to New York I worked in a in an office of credit office was a subsidiary of dun and Bradstreet an idea for a couple of years had a boss wife kinda emulated when or when I have to play a boss or someone whose very strict I can remember him he was just a big blow hard and you could see right through him and I was on the brink of being fired for two years every time I was ready to be fired someone else in my department would quit or leave and that I'd be back in his good graces I remember near the end I would come in I remember one morning over sleeping and coming in like at ten thirty and walking the also my friends were walking out of the office they're going to coffee break I see where you're going is we're going to get caught his foot turned around and got coffee with them so I would I said if I can come in at ten thirty I might as well walk in eleven here's a hint for people are working in an office and have one foot in the office on one four foot out when you leave at night leave your sport you're your jacket there so when you walk in the door later in your shirt in your shirt sleeve so the boss assumes that maybe you were there even earlier than him and he feels a little guilty that he and he'll come in a little early the next day to see at what time you actually did get in that those a little trick I'm giving away for free no that's good thank you very much so how do you wear your hair when you're not on camera well I think that is the strangest question I've ever been asked I'll have to remember that I asked yes I am a straight over my forehead like the Eisen show no I work pretty much the same I I've I did like my here doing waiting for Gotham where I was playing what I thought would be curly from Oklahoma in curls over my forehead I looked at that I said my gosh I was trying to be funny but I look darn good there stylized away I had to adopt on this question for you how come I don't see you in more things you know I'll give you may phone number of my agent who called me after every job is how to get that you know I don't know I I have last year and this year I really a streak of gold I was on Murphy brown I went to family matters I went to friends I went to Roseanne I mean I went like eight weeks in a row without missing a week work is Willard you realize name no my real name is Johnny fortune but the well yes it is Fred Willard yes that's it I'm stuck with that is that it's not the most glamorous but it's it's mine yes Fred Willard thank you so much for talking with us thank you for having me on Fred Willard speaking to Terry gross in nineteen ninety seven the familiar

Or if you pay five bucks you're going to be able to get it ad free for those of us who don't subscribe to comcast's ask cable. There is peacock premium for ten dollars and peacock with ads for five dollars right. So if you don't have comcast or Cox doc I guess you can pay the ten dollars per month for access to fifteen thousand hours of live and on demand content or if you don't WanNa pay the ten bucks per month you can pay five per month and watch the stuff with ads. And there's a lot of stuff I mean if you look at the things they've announced you know. In addition to shows like the office and Dan you know movies that are going to be hoarded from the NBC library. They're doing a lot of originals. That are going to debut here. There's everything from things like Punky GI brewster sequel show two projects with Dick Wolf. And Amy Poehler Norman. Lear a lot of interesting stuff is going to be here on peacock. Yeah it's it's not quite the you know all the sort of meat and potatoes down there middle stuff. I think certain people were expecting for example. The Norman Lear project has is called clean slate at stars. Laverne Cox. She is the daughter of a old school car. Wash owner who is so happy that his estranged child is coming back to Alabama after many years but then it turns out that the estranged son is now an estranged daughter Played by the fantastic Laverne Laverne Cox so. That sounds very like Norman Lear and that is going to be one of the offerings. There's also something about called expecting about a young woman who is Sir no longer. Quite as young as she used to be and decides she wants to have a baby with her gay best friend so and and then there's something about the advent of twitter. I mean there's there's quite a mix if if you're a law and order fan you're you're going to end up wanting to get this and you can get a free version called peacock free but you won't get access you'll only get about half of the programming coming off offered on the premium version An you know a delay on the on the current NBC shows. So you won't get everything but you can get a version of this us for for free with ads. So that's their strategy. I know there's been some skepticism about it. I I I gotta think though that a lot of people who are sort of overwhelmed by all the a bigger numbers they're paying we'll look that's cheaper than Disney You know it's it's an inexpensive introductory price. At least yeah and this is part of the whole comcast a strategy. You mean they are hoping to get to thirty thirty five million subscribers in five years less than the ninety or so the Disney is looking for but but keep in mind that comcast is still very much in the cable business and they've approached this very much as a cable provider who is launching a supplementary service service for the people that are cord cutters and don't subscribe to comcast's but also for the people that do and there's going to be an advertising component that it is very big on this service unlike dizzy and unlike apple and unlike netflix. So they're going to have dual revenue streams here and they believe that each subscriber to this service will give them about ten will give them about seven dollars in revenue and that's a decent return. Yeah we'll see how it does I you know they're. They're also buying from all different suppliers instead of supplying everything themselves.

P. of communications for a B. C. entertainment I was going to say that because I pulled up right okay V. P. of communications for ABC entertainment and they made the decision. to put in a couple of blocks and to to talk about. the Emmy Award did Norman Lear is up for. or all the family and the Jeffersons the live performance. Jimmy Kimmel's a producer of the show also will Ferrell amongst others so they paid for a two week run here on KFI am they paid my exorbitant talent fading which they. which I lost over the weekend in Vegas and we talked about you know if you're in the industry and you love the shot the shell that Norman Lear's up for an Emmy and the more enemies that these type of shows get the more everybody works off your best man of bad boy you got it you're like Christian on a show you're a caterer wardrobe hair my grip bat grips whatever. props. that vote for Norman Lear. and the more enemies that this guy in these type of shows wind up more everybody works right and we what we did I think a lot with a very little yeah as far as you know. messaging right yeah we really knocked it out there so we did it for two weeks and it worked is Norman Lear one the only at me for ABC I believe. it was the one Emmy Award there that the networks that network one ABC one only one award that's the word we talked about and we told the people in their cars leaving studios why they should vote for Norman there and he wins is his Emmy Award the oldest man or woman ever to win an Emmy Award Norman there. now it's also Jimmy Kimmel's been up for like six six seven or eight Emmys he won his first as well that was his first that's his very first and that's because of us. right so when every time he looks at me award. is like at Conway help me with this right that would be nice and then will Ferrell has been up for seven eight nine ten I am Emmy awards he won his first as well that was his first Emmy Award that's huge and so there are other networks out there and there are other you know production companies and they all are spending money cornice Sam Rubin the money is shifted from Oscars the Emmys and. having it on the show on the air here on the show for two weeks may have put him over the top it certainly did he won the Emmy Award. and so I think we should give ourselves an Atta boy for help. garnering ABC helping to push ABC into their it's solo Emmy Award because they're the only. show that advertised on this station at night. to try to get ME award and it worked. not that expensive it's not you know twenty million erred fifteen fifty million dollars like Netflix spent you know trying to get an Oscar for their their movies or their movie I thank god Netflix at a movie they spent fifteen million dollars to produce and then fifty million to try to get it an Oscar for it wasn't even a moving. Rama Rama. home right before the sale and so I think in the future and I and I and I'm being honest with you the road to an enemy. they show. stop laughing Wellington is reportedly shot and killed the guy who shot and wounded someone else on self Figueroa Burbank police and firefighters and other agencies.

IBC good morning it started with. a very strange bit of information coming out of a righty. variety. made a statement. that's. there are a lot of people very interested. in remakes and size hole things about Norman Lear in the remake of of all in the family that they did of the live audience version which I think is that Jamie Foxx ruined I thought they were doing a remarkable job until Jamie Foxx's playing George Jefferson diseases George Jefferson was a spin off the Jeffersons is gonna have all the family and he was doing his characters and the other people are doing this character Emerson Thome was absolutely spectacular as Edith bunker and we Harrelson to his credit is Archie bunker was excellent. and I I do I think he wrote it. but one of the things that Norman Lear also did he produced the princess bride. and the tweet from variety was according to the Sony Pictures Entertainment CEO very famous people whose name I won't use want us to do remakes and one of them is they want us to redo the princess bride and the response from Twitter. works with any of this work has been just off the charts and people have been re tweeting carry always Ellis he played Wesley. and I don't know if people would pay to see Carrie I was in a movie right now I really and truly don't. Carrie Ellis wrote there's a shortage of perfect movies in this world it would be a pity to damage this one. two hundred and nineteen thousand likes. like just people have taken to that as maybe the most perfect representation of the movie and the kindness in the decency in the fun loving and the joy of that film. like a heat in cabs later that. perfectly. which makes me think. this is the best marketing ploy since spicy chicken sandwich is a pop us. here's my thesis. I think they put it out there just to see if anybody was listening. although I'm sure some full said we should remake the princess bride. I am willing to believe that some fool said that. now we should make a princess bride but every character should be black. feel free. but the argument on princess bride is that it happened to have been exceptional casting. Wallace Shawn. the the the short guy. who is doing the whole you know drinking thing Andre the giant could you who who it was just so perfect it just so much in this fun loving. basic Kerry Ellis is great in this part many battalion was great. you kill my father prepare to die it. Christopher guest. as the guy was six fingers name the character name eludes me right now. maybe that's what they're talking about I don't know maybe all the characters are going to be gay I don't know what their plan is. the movie is a classic. so I'm wondering. whether or not this was a marketing ploy. this whole thing was a marketing ploy and now we're going to see the princess bride re released in theaters and it's gonna sell out. because I'm I'm putting my marker down if the princess bride was playing for a weekend at select theaters anywhere was in Indianapolis sell out. not even a question even new field you know sometimes the movies are there said we're doing the princess bride. if he sold out in thirty five minutes. the movie is exceptionally good. by every standard. as a love story as a comedy as action filled it is a very very well done movie. which means they will totally remake it. but I think it's going. two I think you're gonna see a back of this I think they're gonna give it a shot certainly I wouldn't be surprised if locally that add some was like you know what we should let people talk about was blank.

We're here you have perhaps the funniest pin tweet i have ever read in my life and i'll for those of you that are listening. I will go through a really quick in my career. I've been killed twenty twenty eight times so far. I've killed over forty and i lost my baseball that pretty much sums it up. I mean i could not stop laughing that assist in half to say so. I'm reading some ear your tweets here before i get into your life a little bit one. I completely agree with your take on casting directors actors and how they should receive some type of recognition from the from the academy. I am so on board with you on that. That was the first thing i thought when i saw that david but rubin has been named president of the academy that that finally they should be able to get recognition because it's the only department in in all of l. making the only department head. There's a head of casting that there's no oscar recognition in the never has been <hes> and that that's that's wrong so hopefully it will okay so that's that's insane because i have to tell you earl the fact that i had jackie burch on the show. I want to see a year ago. I mean she was the backbone for those unbelievable unbelievable. John hughes movies early on. She's one of the best casting directors on the planet and people don't know that because they know that but there's no you're right. There's gotta be some type recognition for these people's great work. Yeah i'm on board and two more things before we get to your life. You're a huge kiss fan. Is that accurate well. I'm a huge music fan rights across the board. That's like a lot of live shows on but yes as as a kid one of the things that right around the time. I thought i technically cognizant thought that i want to be in movies. I was a ratted kiss fan. Yes <hes> um and then <hes> so <hes> yeah. I've i've gone through numerous times over. You must follow my tweets. I am i'm going on the kiss cruise. I've been invited in years past to go and i can finally do it. I finished production on the show. I'm working on right now. <hes> <hes> right about the time of the crew so that was like you know what i'm going to one of my one of my buddies musician buddies from nationals going with me because my wife has desire higher hispanic tomorrow night in charleston. South carolina is legitimate like crews career away for a couple of weeks. Is that how that work yet. It's a five day cruise. It's a music cruise. I've done it the outlaw country cruise which is x._m. Series <music> outlaw and they do it in conjunction with six men. Six men also produces. The kiss cruise routes on the same boat. It's the same everything that's how i've been invited it. 'cause i've gotten to know all those guys and they found that i was a kiss. Fan like me just spoke so i'm finally doing for me. The twenty five hundred trunking rolling all night darting in every day in the guest navy man gene gene gene simmons does not get enough credit. He's done some beautiful things with make a wish kids but that's another story for another time. Do some really sweet things that people don't know about but the last tweet that i wanted to just before we get into your life is your recognition of the show the boys on prime. How freaking greed is that show. I i love it. I still got to shoot episodes. I think left to go yeah saddam idiots. It's it's disturbing. I'm riveted to it <hes> with you know it's such a social satire commentary on the world. We live in business that worked and the political system that we're all living. It's it's really really good and when you think about it and i won't ruin it for you because you have to left but when you think about it though it's that's exactly how superheroes would be if they existed. They wouldn't be like the marvel crew. They would be exactly like this right. Okay so let's get into your mazing life man here so you're born in western kentucky so the acting buds bog in performance bug has got a bite you right that grandparents grandparents house right because they do a lot of i don't wanna see entertaining because that's a terrible war. They put a well. How would you phrase it was the fourth i peter peter i ever attended was my grandparents torch it. Was you know it was farming. Culture and on the weekends are on sundays usually sunday afternoons afternoons after church. That's where everyone would gather. Isn't that was the one day they wouldn't be working. <hes> the the first time i really thought that i i wanna do that. I mentioned earlier of freshman year in high school three movies that just blew me away that it was the summer seventy seven seventy eight <hes> star wars halloween animal house. Those are the ones youngest pre trees videotape rentals. You know if you saw movie you had to see skaters so the movies i went back to seek multiple times where those three and they were the ones that really planted the seed. I've told by a family friend. I do do not remember this but i can remember being the ham as a kid telling jokes that stuff but she swears when i was around five years old at my grandmother's house. She said what she goes. You look to being you said monday. I'm going to be an actor in movies. I don't i don't remember it but she he swears so i guess that seat was planted earlier animal house. You have to say one of the things that you have that is really difficult difficult to get either. You have it or you don't that's my opinion on. This is a sense of humor because i i always have those people who say well. I'm funny like if you have to tell somebody. You're funny earl. You're not not funny and i believe that you've got that about you. Thanks there is there is a thing of timing that is kind of an inherent thing that if people don't have it you can't learn it <hes> it is an innate thing that really goes to the any kind of skill in any creative pursuit <hes> but yes. I do think there's a lot of great stand up comics folks who were not good actors and there's a lotta great actors who can't do comedy. I always found myself drawn towards the uh the artists that kind of <hes> did everything and shell silverstein and kris kristofferson and you know musicians as in writers and painters actors don't really think it all comes from the same place is different skill sets crafts skills involved also but that that need to create live in the moment and we share that with that i think is universal. No that's really really well said and i was talking to aunt cusak who's in the boys and she brought up second city in chicago and she was talking about that and how how that how you mentioned timing right so she was really focused on the timing part of it so it's interesting to hear you say it that way. It's really really well federal and it's it's just a story from my resume in how you approach stuff i i was a rabid seinfeld fan and i ended up getting cast on seinfeld with guest star and i never really been around. Any of those got is in leary had just won the award for master of my domain which i think alongside vitamin d benjamin lucie is the best half hour of television comedy ever written a bomb. There's some norman lear stuff that i would probably put come in that pantheon but but anyway just line so i find myself on the show cont- they fired another star in the middle of that week. I hadn't seen larry the entire time and we're about to shoot and mine was a big theme at the top of the show that sets the a. n. B. storylines in into play too big seen on a on a bus with george jerry so we've we've been rehearsing on the set. We're going to pre-tape that on an actual bus so there is shows up for the rehearsals we we go through it and as they're pulling the boss on the sound stage he goes earl is comically this. This seems not working not that coming so we go down to the other during the stage and he says let's let's run it. I'll be jordan jerry u._b. L. let's let's let's run it so we do it two or three times and he had this annoying habit habit of shaking his head no ever so slightly as we're doing it because i tell you i tell you what let's switch out the audi al u._b. George and jerry gary. Let's switch so we do it a couple of times switching roles. It was all right. Let's switch back so we slipped back back started doing this thing. He starts shaking his damned head and you know i don't lose my cool hardly ever do i even get nervous but man by ask was clinton in that. I'm gonna get tired. I said all right but let's and as he shaking his head ahead no and when i see all right what's what's the intention at the top of the scene. I mean the beat when i think of in terms of of the beats intentions intentions as an actor. <hes> you know that you enter a scene you you have a purpose for entering seeing that in that whole purpose that arc leeches through the seeing you have beats that that changed through the course of things leading toward the purpose so that's the way i think of stuff and i said so. You'll oh my intention when i entered the scene i i don't know him from from this week and he's looking at me with this incredulous look on his face me like i said oh. I didn't say this but i thought it. She doesn't think black a playwright. He doesn't think what beatson intentions each strictly comic rhythms bets. Ah the rhythm and pace of the saying fuck do it again. Let's do it again. I go back to the top and basically impersonated canadian him doing the part. That's it that's it. That's it that's it. That's the thing so that you know that was a learning process because that's the way he approaches stuff <hes> and then of course when we got he put himself in the scene as the man in the cape running on the bus and we get on the bus. I was too tall for the lights. I had to squat so that my face would appear on camera. I had he was the most unnatural thing in the world on on on camera on the frame it will but i had to do was incredibly comfortable and then we start filming the damn seen i can see his ball all hit the corner of my eye checking when he says that you know the larry sanders show exaggerated. I buy per cell nice not exaggerating there <music> but that but that's a that's a great point you bring up because you kind of he just has a different approach of how to do things. I mean look at your. I mean when i said had you were a diverse actor. I wasn't kidding all your work. Your filmography filmography is amazing so you must have as an actor those little. Those are the little things you have to learn along along the way that that obviously make you the actor you are today right. It's those little moments right. Is that a good way of looking at it yes but but it looks like not every situation. Are you perfect for our baseball game on right now. Not every great player fits on every t- recruit them and and in that situation it was it was uncomfortable for me. It turns out. It's aren't you know i'm i'm fine in it. I'm in the same cell thing <hes> and then other times. There's situations where it's just like. You know it's a perfect perfect fit. You just immediately click in with everybody that you're working with. Deadwood was that was just a really rare her <hes> situation that we were all firing on all cylinders and and we knew that we have something unique and it created hit a bond that that still exists a jerry stone pot that still exists between all of us yeah. It's an absolute work of art. I'm going to touch on that in a moment. I'm so yeah you we talked about these experiences. You you end up getting a bachelor's degree murray state you get your m._f._a. At depaul to great schools so so we get early on earl that you're the acting bug is bidu. You're you're very talented. You're you're certainly met to what you're doing but where who is your biggest influence fluence kinda coming along we mentioned some movies. We mentioned some moments but whether it's the paul murray state. Is there a mentor or somebody kind of growing up or developing your your your skill. Is there somebody that you really credit more than anybody else or is it just the the <hes> all these things taking into account as one like i think yes there's absolutely been great teachers along the way i think getting a little metaphysical here but i think the universe sent you. The teachers features that you need in these places in your life just has to be open and aware you know and and i can look back. I mean the first major influence. I was a high school teacher. Our speech in debate coach larry england mccallum county high school. He demanded the best of you. He demanded and did you work <hes> and he always said look winning is a byproduct of being at your best and he said here's here's the deal. We're all from a farming community in western kentucky. There's nothing wrong with being a farmer with being a carpenter would be with as long as you choose that as long as that's what you wanna do with your life but don't let think just because of the background you're from anything's possible and my group of friends that we're in that group with me are highly successful. Ones the senior v._p. Of united healthcare at boston one is the assistant general manager of jack daniels. Thanks bert one is he's now on his own but he was with oracle years out of dallas <hes> and we joke about something the water amongst us that we we kind of set off of each other and challenged each other and we all got out and did something else with our lives <hes> so that and then in college of martin allen oscar was the head of a theater department when i took an acting class on a whim i had no idea what i was going to do when i started college of the first my family to ever go to college and mark but then eight professional actor at one point in his life and he's the one who kind of pulled me aside and when you have something special you have so there was him i don the second city chicago there was going it can in graduate school and then in the professional world.

Netflix, CBS And Sony discussed on The Frame

"One day at a time the Latin x centered remake of Norman Lear nineteen seventies TV show of the same name is back for another season. Netflix canceled the series back in March. But yesterday pop TV CBS owned cable network. Announce that will pick up the show for a fourth season. Lesley Goldberg is the west coast, TV editor at the Hollywood reporter, and she joined me talk about the deal and told me, why Netflix canceled a series to begin with Netflix. Like many of the other streamers and the upcoming ones will not and do not, and will not ever release exact viewership data. So it's very hard to measure shows or movies success. But, you know, we'll look, I interviewed Netflix, head of original Cindy Holland back in April. And one of the things that she said was that didn't make economic sense to bring back one day to time for a fourth season part of what how networks does make its decisions is. They look at how much they're spending on a show and how many new subscribers. It's bringing, which of course, we don't really know either way. I mean that's looks reports. It's quarterly subscriber gains and losses. But you have no idea, how much of that is tributed to their decision to renew, or cancel the new show. But with their with the billions of dollars that they're spending on original programming every year. It's the, the decisions that they're forced to make our will fourth season of show like a of a show. One day time bring in new subscribers. Or would we best be us using the millions that we're spending on that show to do a new show that could bring in more, one company did feel the economics made sense, and that is pop TV so who is pop TV? And why did a show like this make as much sense to them as it didn't make to Netflix? Well, we should before we even talk about pop TV we should give credit to the producers of one day to time. And that's Sony Pictures television. The independent. Studio and they were successful able to save this show. This was their business dealing, and this is look this is ground. This is TV history. This is the first time that you're seeing a scripted original show that was picked up and aired originally on a streaming platform, moved to a linear network like pop TV pop TV originally known as the TV guide network. It used to be co owned by Lionsgate television and CBS about a year ago CBS wanna buying full control. So this is a niche, basic cable network, that is owned by CBS, and, you know, look, CBS, digital platform all access what really express a lot of interest in picking up one day at time, but because of the original clauses in Netflix contract it prohibited. Any other streaming platform aka any Netflix competitor from picking up this show within a few years, and nobody's gonna wanna wait multiple years to pick to revive a show that winds up. Being expensive. You have to re promote it people have lost interest. You know you you strike, while the iron is hot. And that's exactly what pop TV did as for why they picked it up. I spoke with pop TV president Brad Schwartz yesterday on Thursday, and one of the things that he mentioned is, this is a very, very small network. They have only a handful of originals shows what be it scripted and unscripted. That's largely network that is home to repeats of some big pop culture, syndicated shows, like Buffy the vampire slayer Dawson's creek the original Beverly Hills nine oh, two one. Oh, charmed. And the reason this was interesting to them is first and foremost. Everyone CBS from Brad Schwartz to the executives like Joe Iannello and David Nevins over at CBS creatively. Loved the show, and it made sense for pop because this isn't network that as I mentioned is very big on the stall. And they looked. They're sweet spot. Viewers are people who love stuff from the eighties nineties, look, no further than what their syndication, their syndicated content is ROY. Right. That's the sweet spot Dawson's creek. You don't get much more nineties, and that Buffy the same thing. And the fact that, that this what they picked up is actually a reboot of show, that, that many of its viewers already have an awareness of because of the original from forty years prior it really hit the sweet spot, so creatively. It's an IP. It's, it's intellectual property that it's audience already knows said that. It's, it's unprecedented for a show to go from a streaming service to a cable network. Does that mean it was legally difficult to unwind the deal at flex and get it on this new platform? So in terms of setting, you know, the legal precedent. This really was a business it move. So because Sony owns the rights to the show it become becomes there to figure out what they wanna do it. However, I will say that Netflix does own because they paid for and have a contract to keep those first three seasons. Netflix will remain the exclusive home streaming home to the first three seasons of one day at a time. But in the new deal Sony gets a whole lot of rights back from Netflix. Because of their pass on season four. So that means that Sony will now be able to sell the show internationally which it never did with Netflix because Netflix is in many international markets and Sony. Also in a couple of years we'll have a streaming library starting with season four. And if the show goes five six seven through ten like producer, Mike, Royce told me he wants it to they're going to have a streaming library to sell. So, you know, in APR twister fate one thing that could happen later down the line is Sony could say, hey, we've got you know, seven more seasons of this show net. Flicks, do you want buy the library to go with the first three? And even if the one day at a time fan base didn't have a lot to do with coming back on pop TV are they at least happy now that it is coming back overjoyed? I mean, it's, it's like Christmas in June. This is this is a deal. It's never been like I said, it's never been done. A streaming show has never moved off of that to find another home. Usually, it's the other way around where Netflix has been heralded as, as the save our. Show champion because they've revived so many other shows in recent memory. I mean designated survivor was canceled at ABC and moved to net flix, FOX cancel Lucifer, and Netflix picked it up. I mean, there's so many shows that Netflix has done that with. And now this is the very first time. Netflix said, nah, no will pass and left it to the studio to find a new home for it

It you could tell the audience was just floored by that. Because the applause was just it was deafening. Yeah. So she did a great job. I it was it was it was good. But I still don't understand why we did it. Because Jimmy Kimmel could you know, in, you know, you know, Norman Lear ninety six years old, and he was there, and it was kind of cool, the concept. But I'm still afterwards going. Whoa. Why, why don't we just do this? But it was it was entertaining. I didn't didn't hate. It was just a one time thing. That's what I was talking with Charlie before the show about that. And I said, you know, this is going to be a one time thing, and he goes to God. I hope so. It was it was not bad. But it was it was strange because there wasn't a a basketball game. So I had to find something to do exactly. So maybe the ratings will be there to justify more of these, but in another highlight was very beginning of the show, because Mercer toy Mersa toe library. Yeah.

On the insta- she put it on the insta- because that's what you do now She. Said it was statement I have always been transparent about my journey with addiction, what I've learned is that, the illness is not something that disappears or fades with time is something. I must continue to overcome and have not done yet so that's part of her statement of is she going into rehab said she they have not said officially but she has to. Everyone said that that will, be the next step and you would gather this saying that she realizes that she. Must continue to overcome this and has. Not yet that she, realizes that she still needs some, help alcoholic or drug addict you're an addict. For life and that's nothing to be, ashamed of your recovering for the rest. Of your life and it's one day at a time it's not a cliche it's fact dean because you know. We know she's done rehab in the past you know if she was doing continuing she was doing continuing and then stopped I want to say it was last.

California and, Noel king in Washington DC good morning what exactly was the, nature of. A meeting between Donald Trump junior and. A Russian operative at, Trump, Tower in, two thousand sixteen the White House I said that meeting was about. Adoption policy but the president has described it in other. Ways and then yesterday he tweeted quote. This was a meeting to get information on An opponent he said in that same tweet that it was legal but he also. Said, that he knew nothing about it the president's, also been tweeting about his former, campaign, chairman Paul Manafort Manafort is back. In federal. Court this week he's on trial for Bank and tax fraud, his trial comes out of special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Russian interference Chuck Rosenberg. Is on the line with me now he's, a former federal federal prosecutor he worked in the. Eastern district of Virginia where manafort's, trial is taking place Mr. Rosenberg good morning Good morning well all right so. This isn't the first time that the, president has acknowledged that this meeting. Was affected Lee an attempt to get dirt. On Hillary Clinton President Trump of course. Was not at that meeting why do you think that President Trump is bringing. This back, up now See'ums mightily concerned about it and perhaps with good reason if, you look at the indictment that the Muller team lodged against the Russian military officials. From the GRU we know that in, March and April of two thousand sixteen so prior to the meeting and Trump Tower the g. are you already started to hack into the emails of, the Clinton campaign the Democratic National Committee and the, democratic congressional campaign, committee fast forward to that meeting I. Think, the operative question Noel is what did the US persons Trump, junior Manafort and others attending that. Meeting know, about what the Russians had already done and did? They joined. That, conspiracy even. After it began with the president has said said on Twitter that this meeting was quote totally, legal also though made an attempt or made. An effort, to to, say I didn't know anything. About it I mean could this particular meeting cause legal trouble for president Trump Quite. Possibly it certainly seems like it could cause legal trouble for the Americans who attended the meeting at the very least meeting with a. Hostile foreign power with the Russians should trigger counter intelligence concerns among any sort of savvy political. Person first thing you do is pick up the phone and call the. FBI they don't seem to have done that could cause legal trouble for the president quite possibly as. Well particularly if having heard about the meeting getting the readout from his son about what happened at the, meeting he tries to cover up the intent of the. Meaning he tells false stories about what the meeting was, four and as we know dictates a statement on Air. Force One, concealing the purpose of the. Meeting that's an obstruction of, Justice quite, possibly and it could land the president and others around him and quite a bit of. Trouble let's talk about one person who formerly was around the president who is potentially in quite a bit of trouble palm Manafort since we last talked to you the trial started the government is laid out some pretty powerful evidence for. The jury do you think prosecutors are in a strong position heading into week two or how. Would you characterize your position no I think that's exactly right I think. It's a strong physician and here's why these cases paper intensive document cases tax fraud and Bank fraud. Tender run according to script there's somewhat formulaic the government introduces income they introduce expenditures they put on accountants, to show that the accountants didn't know that Mr. Manafort. For instance had foreign Bank accounts or that he was, concealing income and then unwittingly these accountants help them prepare. Tax returns, that he files with the. IRS which understated income and, omit the, fact that he has control over these foreign Bank accounts all of that is formulaic and. All of that is precisely what's happening in a courtroom in the eastern district of Virginia manafort's case are testifying to These things yeah That's exactly right and so what I expect you'll see in the coming week is a little bit more. Of the same there'll be some summary witnesses from the FBI who will total up the amount of money in the Bank accounts and ultimately will tie those accounts to Mr. Manafort directly will show that he committed income from his. Income tax returns then I expect we'll hear. From, Mr., gates well. Yeah that is that is that is the big, question? This week right manafort's Paul, manafort's longtime deputy Rick gates expected to. Take the stand how does he fit into the? Prosecution, strategy here well criminals tend to. Run with criminals so Mr. gates. Isn't admitted criminal Mr. Manafort is. An accused criminal it shouldn't surprise the jury very much that these two guys plotted together conspired did much of the same thing tax fraud and Bank fraud to fat in. Their own waltz I think the government will put Mr. gates, on the stand they'll they'll have him. Admit To all his wrongdoing that's fairly typical to and then they'll take him step by step through. The indictment having him explain each of the. Things, that, he and. Mr. Manafort did together to cheat the IRS and, to? Fraud banks and just briefly, how do you see Mr. manafort's defense. Lawyers countering the government's case what's your strategy here? Well, they're gonna try and do two. Things one they'll try and say. That Mr. Manafort lack the intent. To defraud the IRS or the bank's perhaps if his income tax returns understated income they'll say it was an accident because he was a very busy man and second I. Think they'll try to pin as much of this on Mr., gates as they possibly can The real one at fault took Rosenberg, was a federal prosecutor in the eastern district of Virginia thanks so much Israel passed a law last month that continues to cause controversy the, nation state law defines Israel? As the, nation state of the Jewish, people critics say this? Law, discriminates against religious minorities like Muslims and. Christians. Who make up about a fifth of the Israeli population as NPR's Daniel estrin reports from Tel Aviv this law is sparking protests, from religious, group that's one of Israel's staunchest supporters the Druze religious minority in Israel. Held an, unprecedented protests this weekend thousands gathered in Tel Aviv's main square chanting the Hebrew word for quality She The you are religious group and shoot of, Islam their ethnic. Arabs but unlike most other Arab, citizens they've committed to serving in the Israeli, army they.
