Good to talk to you. Good morning. I know you're not a lawyer. I'm I'm not a lawyer. I only play one on the radio. Can you tell me What's the deal with the lawsuit against Google is just going to go anywhere. You know what's what's the wouldn't detect people saying about Yeah, So this is this is interesting. Basically, the Department of Justice is alleging that Google has violated antitrust law and they're kind of being like that gatekeepers to the Internet. Is this complete, says that Google essentially unlawfully is kind of boxing out its competitors. By reaching deals with phone makers like Apple and Samsung. In order to kind of be that, like, preset default search engine that you you know what I find if you just fire up your son? And that also that you know, because, uh, Android is such a dominant operating system that Google is kind of strong arming these manufacturers to pre load all it's Google asked on the phone that's kind of a crushing the lawsuit there, but Why this is notable is that this is like the highest profile lawsuit that the U. S. Has brought against the big companies like stopped in the nineties and just kind of comes at a time when a lot of people, including lawmakers are realizing How big and powerful these tech companies are. They're kind of grappling like, Well, what do we What do we do about that? Right? Yeah, Twitter's gonna be next. Next in firing line. I have a feeling after all this going on. It's interesting stuff, And I know you guys had a little bit of time now to get your hands on Apple's new iPhone. 12 12 pro. What's the verdict so far? So one of our editor Patrick Collins spent the whole last week with them and really like them both, you know, In fact, these are some of our highest rated phones, and notably, he liked the sweet design. The camera improvement, you know, sharper screen faster processing. Something interesting, he said, though, is that there's actually not like a huge difference between the 12 in the 12 pro, which might complicate the decision making process or some folks because they do have a lot of the same features. But one thing to consider is with the baseline. 12 pro comes with 128 games of storage versus 64 for the 12 so that might that might help narrow things down a little bit, But this is some fine bones. Right now. This next one really bothers me. There's something called a deep fake, but It is probably taking regular pictures of everyday people and making them nudes. My gosh, This is frightening for me. Tell me what you know. What can we do about this? Yeah. So it's the thought that this report on DNA found on the messaging app called Telegram and it has this ability that like, he said, like, Edit out people's clothes. So far, it's something more like, you know, I think 100,000 images mainly of women also have Children, which is really scary and a lot of these photos. They're just kind of pulled from Social Media television didn't respond. Tio request for comment, and they haven't said if any action is going to be taken so You know, I would I would love to say, like do X, Y and Z and, you know, you'll be okay but kind of situation that we're in with with, you know, Deep fakes. It is for a lot of people. It feels like a can of worms that have been opened up when you have a technology that can easily and convincingly. No manipulate images and video and whatnot. So a lot of people are still kind of. Ah, trying to put together like a planet of attack. When when something like this does happen. Yes, Carrie. Finally, this morning, I had to get on the air for almost an hour because my windows 10 was requiring me to update it. Even though I said I'll do it later. No, you won't. You'll do it now, and you'll like it, young man. And so that's what happened. Me. Do we have to dump this thing that the window stuff with newest updates. Phone laptop, Whatever. So you know for Microsoft. Of course, they very much encouraged this. I think them in their work to keep things running smoothly and securely. Um, but yeah, that that's his new fall. A state that husband features like, redesign Start menu and notifications Task blind, You know some other things. So whenever these, you know, updates, roll out like they they want people, Teo, you know. Take a minute t kind of downloads. Um, a lot of times. They're like they look, security patches and things it needs updates it like you would want to get out, you know? Go ahead. I mean, so, So in other words, we have to download you have no choice.

"In fact, this stuff was occurring, but what the government alleges and what the recorded conversations apparently corroborate is that Mr Burke himself was speaking directly with Dennis Reid is the restaurant executives individuals a and b. In in dealing with them, very directly and making it dropping hints that aren't for the layman are aren't even hence, they seem pretty direct. I read that portion to and I thought gosh, it's like it's right out of the sopranos. No, right. There's there's not a lot of subtlety to it. And I guess to me that's the most surprising thing for who has seen so much. If in fact, the allegations bear out is that he was directly in the line of fire here and in doing it in a not very subtle way. Talking to Patrick Collins who for twelve years was here in town. He helped to put away George Ryan among others personal. And I mentioned this earlier in the program. Mr Collins, my father was a businessman here. I'm sorry. My father-in-law was a businessman for many many years here is now retired in the real estate business curse commercial real estate and had to deal with Edberg on number of occasions in earlier today when I called him, and I said breaking news, Stu breaking news eh. Edberg has been criminally charged. He simply said, the chickens have come home to roost. Well, look, you just you know, as someone who's lived in the city for a long long time. And now I represent individual businesses. I mean, it should not be a cost of doing business in any ward in the city of cargo that you have to pay a tax or you have to pay fealty. You have to do provide some benefit for all dramatic folks doing their job and his as laid out in the complaint. Some cases they didn't even have the authority that they were alleging to have. But yet it just throwing up roadblocks for people trying to conduct business in the city, Chicago, you know, it creates a business environment that is not business friendly. And you know, it creates an environment where you have to know somebody and have to again, pay the tax. They shouldn't have to pay you pay the corruption tax. And it's it's not right. That's not the way that things should work. But unfortunately, it's it's it has been the way that things have worked for a long long time. Mr Collins, can you even reconcile being a public servant in the city of Chicago. And also being part of an. A private business. Who is going to help that private business deal with the city of Chicago. It doesn't seem like those are reconcilable positions. Again. I don't I they aren't they are not reconcilable positions. And you know, people that are petitioning their government for a driveway permit, for example, which you know, we should be in issued by the department of transportation issued by an alderman ward. Again, the idea that that alderman can can sort of get into that process and can can cause the department transportation to Tanada who were permits, for example, that you are otherwise are are qualified to get until you pay the tax. It's just wrong. When you watched Edberg, I don't know if you saw on TV, I watched all of it earlier today, and he was walking to and from the hearing he was worrying that fedora. And he did remind me of George Ryan. Did you get that sense as well? I'm watching. TV today. But I look there's a there's a way that folks, I think is do business that is perhaps ingrained in the culture, and you know, whether that's what happened here. Again, I wanna give Mr Burke his his day in court at the end of the day. This is an attempted extortion in that it did not sort of go to completion. But I do think what the government lays out in in in real significant detail in the words of Mr Burke himself is how this works, and it really is. It's really sort of textbook one. Oh, one extortion is alleged in this in this criminal complaint reminds me of bloggers defense. Well, they never came through with the money. So I didn't commit a crime. But if you attempt to bribe a cop and the cop turns down, the bribe is still a crime, it is I mean, you you're going to get into and again, I don't know what the defense how it will play out here..

"For the thing up your right, pending. This is L S AM aid ninety pretty good. Pretty good Jude. Well, done John. How was a Jennifer Keiper alongside six thirty seven. We'll take until seven o'clock. And it's the great one the marklevinshow here on WLS. What are you bringing me? Oh, thank you. Thank you, a long list of corrupt Illinois politicians. Yes. This is this is a stack. We'll have to read all of it again tonight rolled out onto the floor. That's there's a long list of local state and even federal politicians that have gone away for finger painting and weightlifting courtesy of us here in Illinois that brings us to our next guest early in his career. Patrick Collins served for twelve years as an assistant US attorney here in Chicago, including four years as deputy chief of the public corruption section. He's spearheaded the eight year operation. Rhode investigation. You remember that remember the the break? Licenses. There's former secretary of state George Ryan, right? Former US attorney and now he works at Cayenne s he's a partners there. And he led the prosecution in these six month trial and conviction of former Illinois Governor, George Ryan is his watched a lot of it here in our fair city for a long time. We welcome to wwl's Patrick Collins. Patrick, are you surprised are you shocked? Well, look, I it does explain their aggressive actions with the search warrants and as again as someone who's been on both sides of these sorts of actions. I I was frankly, hoping that the government had some significant evidence because I think by doing a search warrants in the way, they did. Certainly impacted Mr. Birks electoral chances, and I wanted to as a citizen I wanted to make sure there was some some bare their if you will. And I think today's today's criminal complaints is that question. Patrick collins. According to the complaint, the FBI won a judge's approval to wiretap alderman Burke, cell phone already recording his causing before the shakedown at the center of the charge began to unfold back in may of seventeen. What does that tell you? Well, look when you're thinking about presenting your case in court, particularly on someone like miss Burke after have evidence, and there's no better evidence than the individual himself incriminating himself and recorded phone conversation. So I mean, whether it's civil case or this number case, the government's best evidence in public corruption cases are the are the words of the alderman himself, and I think recorded conversations provide the government very compelling evidence. Really fortunate to have Patrick Collins here on double DLC surfer twelve years as an assistant US attorney in Chicago four years as deputy chief of public corruption. He was involved in the conviction of former Illinois Governor, George Ryan, remember, what does it tell you, Mr Collins about Chicago? How are we? So why are we so afflicted and burdened by corruption? We seem to be the Petri dish for the entire nation. Well, look if I had an answer that question, I would I would have retired years ago. I, you know, this issue of deterrence with all that's gone before alderman convictions. Governor gubernatorial convictions, you would think that we were in the new age, but what laid out in the criminal complaint. And again, I would want emphasize as as a lawyer in private practice. These are allegations are not proof, but the seems to be the playbook that we've seen time and again that aldermen have important influence. There's fifty city Chicago. They all have a lot of control over their individual wards. And they they have the ability to use that power to benefit themselves personally. And whenever you do that that's a violation of law, and we've seen it, unfortunately time and time again, but guys is shrewd, and I would say as smart as Ed Burke, and Dan Rostenkowski, even even a George Ryan. I mean, how did they get caught up in things like this? I don't I don't understand that hubris. Is it just you get lazy? You get you get to the point where you just wanna make problems go away. And they'll take the shortcut. I don't I don't understand the the mindset of these guys have been in. In the in the business. So long to slip up this family. Very fair question. It's certainly one that I can't answer. Mr Burke, I what is the pricing having read the criminal complaint is you would think that there would be several layers in between Mr Burke and the active.

"And in one of the videos that we show today on CNN little way ran into a wall because with fighting on and swimming, this it can totally unsafe. So it's kind of the nature of the game. When it comes to spiral. So. This is not that long ago and dancing on the streets by car. Kids raking boiling water, some sort of some sort of boiling water challenge. We talked about reserves dumb. Hey, calling our remaining moments calling Milan's from CNN entertainment reporter, how creepy and I'm just going to play an excerpt of this video he recorded. He's obviously kind of challenging channeling his Frank Underwood a character from house of cards, but he is going to be sentenced. He is going to face a judge here in a few days and be charged officially not sentence, but charged with sexual criminality. Why would Kevin Spacey released this video? Here's a portion to win done. No matter what anyone says and besides I know what you want. You want him back. I mean emulating this character from house of cards, he faces felony sex assault charges. He's going to go in front of judge here in the next couple of days. What's his motivation? Any guess? I mean, I think it's the motivation that a lot of these men have. Totally. Come back, and it seems to be backfiring. I think they just don't get it. And I broke the story at our Kevin Spacey last year that got him from an investigation at CNN. I had multiple people chasing him of inappropriate behavior and one person accusing him of sexual assault. No, I think that my charges before I mean, Kevin Spacey he had been MIA for year comeback wearing at eight grade with Santa Claus. And the. Characters talk about these accusations against impact. Look he's going to be arraigned on January seven and a sexual assault charge. That just wouldn't even have to queue in court. But the judge keep at bursting him to appear in court. Now's baby's going for an insanity defense, and he's like that mobster from queens years ago who used to walk around in his bathrobe to appear to be crazy before trial. Maybe that's what Kevin Spacey's attempting to do. Yeah. I don't know. It doesn't make any sense to me. Thanks so much for your time and your expertise. I hope we can call on you again. Yes. You can thanks so much Chloe melas here on WLS. Of course, some believed everything and just been waiting with baited breath to him. He confess at all that just dying to have me declare that everything said is true in that. I got what I deserved. Wouldn't that be easy? It was all so simple.

"Patrick Collins twelve years as an assistant federal prosecutor here in town helped put George Ryan and the club fed. He'll join us at six thirty eight. We'll ask him if he's surprised or shocked by the charges against Hedberg. He's been there. He's got the card punch. We'll talk to Patrick Collins who is now in private practice here in town in just a few minutes about six thirty eight Dan joins us. He's very patient calling from Richmond. There's some sort of body shop up there some hot rod company was at a couple of weeks ago. Dan, welcome to the program. Hey, thanks for taking my call. How are you? Well, thank you. Good. Hey. Just hear me out per minute. And I'll be brief. But what qualifications do all these politicians? They have. I mean, most of them are lawyers, but other than that, do you have any common theme of make what makes them qualified to look out for the people saying that since the beginning of Representative Republic, you know, we had farmers who are citizen patriots and would go to DC and do their civic duty. And then go home. Yeah. You're right. There's a lot of lawyers Gary McCarthy, of course, has been in law enforcement entire life Vallis has run major school systems board. I mean, there's a couple of guys Ryan here. A few people. Few people that are running that are smart enough for this job. There's a lot of pontificators. There's a lot of posers out there who just like to see their name out there who could not do the job. Even if elected, but we've seen that from time to time America deserves the Representative government that they elect. All right. Well, this being said though. Maybe posers, but out of those good politicians that you would qualify as good politicians. How many how many of those good politicians? Do you think make the decisions for the people and make good decisions where the people I it's kind of a loaded question. And I'll get to my real answer. I don't know if there's an answer to that. Well, here's my here's my comment that why not make it like jury duty or a lottery system where you just pick names out of out of the hat like myself. You don't know me from Adam. And I'm not qualified for the job. But you know, what out of ten different questions or ten different problems that come about my way, I might get three out of ten rice. Dan, there's a there's an old anecdote, it's a proper attribution was William F. Buckley, who said at one point that he would rather be rather be led by report. He'd rather lacked or have our point as congress the first five hundred and thirty five names in the Boston phonebook than the crowd. We had there. Then I'm I'm kind of angling the anti. Cto? But you get what I'm saying. I call him a loss works for CNN. She's the entertainment reporter over there. And I saw her earlier today, and claw you took part in something called the Byrd box challenged based on the movie with Sandra Bullock, is it safe for you. Is it safe for the kids khloe? No, first of all, thanks for having me. The movie is territory. Watch it because we couldn't stop hearing about it. I mean, Netflix released a press release, and they rarely ever get numbers. Like over fifty million. People watched it, and it's I you days, which is unprecedented original film, and Sandra Bullock is incredible. And she plays a mother of children, and I'm not gonna take. It's pretty disturbing. Some sort of thriller, obviously, and they wear this blindfold. And now people are because people are people in Darwin still rules. They're putting on blindfolds and are getting themselves hurt. And I noticed on your report on CNN, and this is calling Kohima Las talking to us. I believe from New York this morning this afternoon. My understanding is that parents are using their kids and stunting on social media and putting the kids endanger with the bird box challenge, which essentially means you walk around with a blindfold on right? So it's a valuable challenge right now. The challenge like you said in that have come out and released a statement saying don't do this. It's dangerous. Basically people are went fold. Or? Being themselves doing everyday tasks. Going to the grocery store around moving vehicles in working through the woods. And some people have good something with them..

"Before you know as much about. I've done nothing wrong. And. Always cooperated was investigations in the past. I'll continue to do. So I guess if you're if the pantheon of Chicago corruption or alleged Chicago corruption includes Rostenkowski are lustrous line of governors, other aldermen father and son combos that are both gone to the big house Gelo, finger painting and weightlifting does add Burke automatically go right to the head of the line because of the power that this guy has accumulated over fifty years, plus his wife sits on this court. It's a big deal. It is a big deal and the big deal to to point out here something that you mentioned was that is a big deal because while he has been investigated before he hasn't been charged. He is now charged. So that's the difference case, I mentioned Daniel restaurant Rostenkowski, obviously, you got the Cruthers the father and the son here locally both did a little time way back when we used call the Lincoln. Now, we call it. The land were for the past nine governors have ended up in prison. That's a new state motto. Obviously. Dan Walker for almost forgot about him Otto Kerner, obviously, Fred Rhody. The former alderman, I believe of the notorious first ward a guy who at one point was named believe back in nineteen ninety nine by the Justice department as a made member not only of the city council, but of the Chicago outfit. Got Fred Roti there. He's would he go on the mount Rushmore, Chicago, the Chicago way, Fred Roti, the alderman, maybe previously. I think this is I Burke is the big one Burks huge. And what is it? I guess I guess some more serious question. And you can join us. We'll we'll make time for your phone calls for the next couple of hours on this three one two five nine one thousand nine hundred. Why does Chicago specialising cropper? Why are we America's Petri dish of corruption old school corruption and newfangled corruption? And what is it about these guys who can get caught on wiretaps talking on cell phones there? Now, fifteen years old, they're not texting each other dirty pictures. How is the guy of Ed Burks intelligence and make no mistake is a smart guy. How is the caught on a wiretap when you already know the FBI has been looking at you same thing blog. I don't get. I can't get my head around that somebody was talking and he didn't know at all because you wouldn't do that. If you had any inkling that something was going on. How far are you? You along in the thirty eight page complaint. Twelve I I made it to about eight, and then I was going through some of the wiretap verbatim. Right. Where he's clearly if it's to be believed, he's clearly saying quid pro quo, essentially, I want you to use my law firm, and we'll take care of the the driveway issue. Through the fees, and this apparently this company has one hundred fast foods for fast food restaurants in the Chicago land area, one of which is in his ward. So and they wanted some sort of some sort of variants for a driveway of some sort. So that's going to bring down. Maybe the most powerful municipal politician in America for the want of a nail for the want of a driveway variance in a stunning to me the stupidity in the hubris. Just stunning we're gonna talk with a Patrick Collins. He was the assistant federal prosecutor along with FitzGerald who put George Ryan away a number of years ago. He'll join us. I think a little bit later on in the six o'clock hour well asking the same questions. What is it about Chicago where this kind of repeating story over and over and over is because we're provincial. I mean, essentially, we're we're a city of neighborhoods. So I hate crops in unless it's my guy. It's then ACOG away pass writes about this all the time. And he, you know, he's writing a column on this right now, and he's probably going to be on our program tomorrow. But as long as my garbage gets picked up my pothole gets filled in my alley gets plowed. Then I don't care about crops because that's my guy. There's something unique about Chicago. I know there's corruption Lewis Louisiana. I notice corruption in New Jersey Rhode Island. Yeah. I know there's other half at us. But we are we are the Petri dish of anomaly old school, but very new and unique high tech ways to attempt to shake down businesses. My father-in-law Jennifer for many years as retire. Now that I call them say and told him I said, well, I let me tell you. He had many many interactions with that Virk because he was in the commercial real estate business in Chicago and around the world, actually, but here in Chicago for many years and sat in meetings with that Burke and had to walk away from deals because he didn't like the way it smelled. And then all of a sudden the deals went awry for some reason, he he did not take the again this. I'm just this is anecdotal. This has not been proven in court. Right. This is not. Storytelling. But from my father-in-law, he said, you know, I I just didn't think this was a good deal for us because it it smelled a little hinky. And so when I call them today, and I said, I just heard Jennifer Keiper, just ran into the studio and said, guess what? At Burke has now been essentially charges have been filed was he technically arrested. I assume he was charged. He came into court appearance. He came in and he was released on bond unsecured bond. Which basically means you have to show up in court when you're told to yes. You have to pay it. I get that. So anyway, but I said, Stu, I said your old nemesis there at Burke has been brought up on charges, and he laughed and he said, well, the chickens have come home to roost, and it was interesting. So why does Chicago specialising corruption? Why do we have a particular culture of corruption back to Eliot Ness, and Al Capone and even before that bath house, John hinky Dink here in town shaking down every tavern owner? And what is it about Chicago in particular, you can read every book about Chicago and references? Gus Russo is his name. He wrote a terrific book two or three different books about Chicago one. The first one is called the outfit. John casts actually gave me the book years ago. And it's terrific in the follow books are terrific as well. And it talks about the long long history of corruption in Chicago, go get that book. It's worth it. The outfit by who'd. I mentioned Gus Russo right Rousseau and he tries to towards the end of the book encapsulate. The unique sort of witches brew that we have here in Chicago. The city of neighborhoods in the city of immigrants where it's very colloquial. It's it's very insular. It's a well you and I- Jennifer we're going to work this out in her neighborhood. And if we have to grease the alderman, we have to grease the garbage collector, we have to grease the guy from streets and Santa the cops or the firemen we're going to do. So that's okay. I'll look if there was a the whole spread in the sometimes many years ago four decades ago, the Mirage when they bought the bar, and you got to see this in action. Oh, yes. Sherman. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. I I was shocked. I was surprised because you knew something was coming down. Yeah. I mean feds don't make a rate unless something's going to be pretty following pretty close to it Marian. Covering the story since its inception of many years with obviously with Burke and other. So she'll join us with what happened today. And then our great colleague Bill Cameron will be here. Just after five thirty newscast to'real on some of the best audio clips of because he saved everything of at Burke, and Eddyville EAC and others and also just kind of the culture of corruption here in Chicago. If there's anyone who knows where the bodies are buried built house. Yes, he does. And he's not talking Edouardo walk into double the Oscar day afternoon, sir. Go ahead. Yeah. Good afternoon. I hear you guys in the mall. I heard you in the morning, but I hear you and after noon, so hopefully, you'll enjoy your slot timeslot. Thank you. I was telling you screener that this really goes back to and this is why I have a problem with getting people elected from big cities like Chicago, LA, New York. So Chicago had alka New York had lucky Luciano, and I forgot who the California had. But this is the problem with these urban people, and we just had Ricky Muna's who went to jail because of thought on his wife on New Year's Eve. So. Yeah. He actually who's happiest about Ed Burks news today. Ricardo Muna's the sweat. Off the front page with that little that little kerfuffle on New Year's Eve. You're right. Yeah. Well him in the Latino community. I'm Latino by the way, and I think this is gonna like really gonna sweep somebody one of those candidates right in. We'll see darnold. Thanks for your call much. Appreciate it, sir. Steve, welcome WLS. You're next. Yeah. So I understand the probably have to look at the the pension problem. They're linked basically, there's a an expectation from the basic city worker to the state worker that they get compensated to the detriment of the state and the city you had a problem is the week, but imitate media it'll cover it in a in a in a here's the real problem. The real problem, in my opinion is how is it that Edberg is extensively. The most powerful alderman in in the city easily maybe in some ways more powerful than the mayor. He controls, you know, hundreds of millions of dollars and has for decades thirty years, he's been the chairman of the the not appropriations committee the finance committee. So how is it? When you need something done when you want to do business with the city, you are recommended to go to his law firm to get that done to me. There's a clear conflict of interest. Jim good morning. Good afternoon. Jim welcome to w house. Go ahead, sir. Good afternoon ever gonna have to get rid of those old habits from last year in twenty years. All right, anyways, I've I've friends of mine to develop restaurant for for help build restaurants, and then in two case of particular, they were met with your local alderman, they were kind of told well, you know, you gonna come their word here. And there's only a few certain construction people you can use. And then you've got to buy security from the other guy. You know, it's it's a lot of money, and he was able to go shit. But he said other guy built a place tutors down. It didn't quote unquote, by the security stuff started disappearing. It has stuff. Started to scream bricks come through the window. Yeah. He bought the security and things were fine. So. And I hope the FBI is going after these guys to Jim thanks much. Appreciate it. More your calls on this and Mary Ann Ahern coming up next WLS..
