"As well as those who were never found that day. You were out with some reporting this week that people are still dying from 9 11. The 343 firefighters that died at the World Trade Center on 9 11 was only the beginning because in the last 19 years 226 more New York City firefighters have died of 9 11 related causes. The air at ground zero. Despite then EPA Administrator Christine Todd Whitman, assuring that it was safe to breathe was not It was what the late Pete Hamill described as a toxic cloud rising like an evil genie from lower Manhattan enveloping all of these first responders who had rushed down there. And so many have gotten sick and died and when I was talking to the fire commissioner this week, Sherry, he said, it's going to be like this for decades to come because some of the firefighters were In their twenties. You know they're now in their forties and are coming down with with respiratory ailments on ly now that have been linked to their time on the pile, and it's a particularly susceptible group to Corona virus to the estimate is about 1400 members of the first responder community. Contracted Corona virus, Couple 100 in the hospital and about 50 deaths. When you compare these two tragedies, what comes to mind to you ones was so sudden and so quick and happened, it transpired and then we moved on. It was massive. Now were in the midst of this one that is continuing has been going on for months. You know, I think of two things, even though they both seemed to come on. Suddenly, there were warning signs that went unheeded. Whether it's the Al Qaeda is plotting to crash planes into buildings memo that was spelled out in the 9 11 report. Or whether it was the virus that the United States knew to be percolating in China. Earlier. Anything was done about it. And then the other thing I think to, and this was reflected in a conversation with the New York City police commissioner, he said. He's also thinking not only of loss but also of rebuilding and you have to have some hope. But if the city could recover from from 9 11 with all of the politics and all of the fraud, rebuilding of the space in the memorial and what it should look like and the lives that air permanently altered. I think you're going to have some of that with Corona virus permanently altered families a lot more of them in this case, but you have to have hope that the city can can rebuild and it has already come out of the worst of it. And you hope there's not a resurgence, but I think those two things the early warnings that were unheated and just that hope for a recovery. You are really on my mind. This's 19th anniversary,.

"May back on August 11th. We're not having a season after six days prior, you did release the schedule. So what you did was tease us and then six days later, you come on out and the seasons postponed six days prior to that They knew they weren't going to have a season. In my opinion. I don't get why they would release that schedule. It's been our understanding that there won't be a big 10 football season in the fall. And we were discussing what would the spring look like? And I was cognizant that even though we say spring football, it could have been as early as January. And the question I kept on asking how much really changes if you were going to play in late September early October. Compared to January, where you could potentially squeezing a football season in January and not push too far back the next season. Now, if you start in January, you're going to have some players that are going to opt out and get ready for the NFL. So I was never really buying into the idea and still not buying into the idea. Of spring football. But just because we talked about spring football does not mean that the game's actually start in the spring. So long story short where we got to today. The big 10 is getting some cold feet, and they're getting paranoid about their decision because of the fact that the A C C. C. C and big 12 are all going to start sometime in September. If you're the big 10, you thought more. We're going to join more. We're going to join in with dew and opt out of the season and that wasn't the case. Is the big 10 Blink first. Then the Pac 12 said. All right, we got a partner. We're gonna opt out of the season. And there's been no moment about the Pac 12 plan until potentially the spring and the other three conferences. We're basically in a staring contest and the SEC walked right out of the room. They said. We're still planning on plan the A. C. C said okay, we're going to follow suit and eventually The big 10 followed suit as well. And think about that dynamic. Where you have to conferences and the power five that aren't playing and then three or play. So those three conferences in the power five get through that season. The Big 10 and Pac 12, even though they thought they were doing the right thing are going to get clowned and embarrass nationally on the other. And though it the big 10 and Pac 12 don't play in the in the fall. And they don't have a season in that first semester. And you see the other three conferences fail. Yes. You don't want to celebrate that because that means the world won't be in a better spot and they'll have to shut down because of outbreaks. But I wouldn't be surprised at the Big 10 and Pac 12 of basically be sitting back in their offices and sent it out. Congratulatory champagne emojis. Because that would be a huge sigh of relief that they made the right decision. Oh, that's all changing. Not with the Pac 12 but with the Big 10 today, three big college football insiders Pete Hamill, said sources the big 10 coaches and aides are discussing multiple start dates for the season, Thanksgiving time. New Year's Day, mid January and post Super Bowl. Nothing has been decided ER approved by the president or TV partners. This is early on in the process. Dennis Dodd on CBS Sports. Big Head coaches came up with the Thanksgiving idea, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, who first reported this potential breakthrough. This would potentially give the big 10 the ability to play 10 to 11 games in a season as opposed to eight. If it started in January, 2021. I'll give you more information on that in just a second. Then you had Bruce Feldman source. Big 10 coaches. They're meeting on a call right now. And he's told it's a real possibility that the big 10 may try to reverse course and play later this fall. Here's the bottom line right now. The coaches want to play. The players want to play when looking at the majority of coaches and players. I can't tell you that every player wants to play, and every coach wants the play. But the majority of players and coaches want to play. And now you're seeing the big 10 hearing the public noise and also getting worried that they could be on what would be considered the wrong side of history. And they could have made the wrong decision. And I still don't know the exact explanation with concrete evidence on why the big 10 made this decision. Because something has always been missing here, and I don't know who's right. I don't know who's wrong, but something's always been missing here when all of the same medical information why the big 10 impact 12 thought it wasn't safe to play. Then you have the three other conferences in the power five sec, A CC and big 12 who think it's currently safe to play. So I don't get were. The disconnect is between the power five conferences and right now it's too up against three And it may eventually become one up against four. But the big 10 really isn't welcomed into the party. Because if you start this season And you're really hearing two options that have got a lot of attention nationally. Where the two options are. You would start Thanksgiving and you would play 10 to 11 games. Or you would start January 1 and you would play eight games. Either of those options. You're not going to be involved in the college football playoff picture. Is the college football playoff, according to the committee is still going on as planned and I scheduled Gen. One semi finals and then you would have the championship game on January 11th. If you go through If you're trying to play a 10 11 game season, you start Thanksgiving weekend. You're not going to be ready to go on Jan. One. So the two main questions I have here with the Big Ten's decision. Is one What changed from when you postpone this season on August 11th until now, and it's a very simple answer. It's the fear of the A, C, C, C C and big 12 having success. And then the big 10 would look foolish for not at least getting on the field in the fall. And the other question. I haven't we alluded to it just a moment ago. Why Ifyou're going, Tio potentially play in November. Why wouldn't you move it up a little bit. So your kids could actually play for something. And instead of just competing for a big 10 championship, they could win that Big 10 championship and then get to a college football playoff if we see a full college football season Why not start In October. And the reason why you're not going to start in October because they're going to give us all what we thought it was safer to.

"Remember journalist Pete Hamel. He died yesterday at age 85 from complications following emergency surgery after falling and breaking a hip. Emma was described in The New York Times is the quintessential New York journalist, Times columnist Dan Barry once wrote. If the pavement of New York City could talk, it would sound like Pete Hamill. Hammel traveled the world and covered wars, including Vietnam. He was a columnist for the New York Post and the New York Daily News and served as the top editor at both papers. It was a friend of Robert Kennedy and helped convince him to run for president On the night Kennedy was shot. Hamel was one of the people who tackled the assassin. His many awards included a Grammy in 1976 for his liner notes for the Dylan album, Blood on the tracks and a George Polk Career award in 2014 for his lifetime contributions to journalism. And Hamels, New York Times obituary, Robert McFadden wrote Quote along with Jimmy Breslin, Hamel popularised a spare, blunt style in columns of on the scene reporting in the authentic voice of the working classes, he pounded out stories about murders strikes the world. Siri's championship fights, jazz or politics. And then got drunk after work with buddies in Greenwich Village, unquote. The first of the three interviews will herewith him was recorded in 1994 after the publication of his memoir, A Drinking Life, in which he wrote about the culture of drink. He was once part of And why he gave it up. When we spoke, he hadn't had a drink in 20 years. I asked him if he thought he helped create the myth of the hard drinking journalist. I don't think I created that myth, but I certainly inherited if it was one of the things that I I loved about the idea of the newspaper man in the abstract. I had seen all those newspaper man movies when I was a kid. The idea that you could hold your liquor and type of a new lead on a breaking story was one of the things that you wore like a badge of honor. S o. I suppose during the period that I was drinking. I I did help keep the myth going my own way. What kind of bars were good to hang out at when you were writing a story and what could you get from being in a bar when you were looking for leads? Well, the best Barda hangout and was one that had a typewriter on the premises, and I was not alone in having written stories actually in the basement of the Lion said. I think the best newspaperman bars were not inhabited only by newspaper man. But attracted politicians, hustler's of various kinds, actors, ball players, You know, a place that had an overlapping System. Of the categories that a newspaper is made up off wasn't just simply cops in the front of the paper, but it was the ballplayers in the back of the paper, the actors in the middle of the paper. And the politicians who, if they were not in handcuffs, was certainly at the bar trying to promote themselves into eternity. But say you were investigating a murder in a Brooklyn neighborhood. Would you try to go to a bar in that neighborhood and hang out for a while so that you could find out? Well, almost always. That was the way we operated in those days because New York at that time and I'm talking to the late fifties, the early sixties through Thie end of the sixties, really? When things began to change very quickly in New York at that time was a Siri's of Hamlets connected Hamlets, and the bar was still a major institution, along with the church in a political club and probably the police precinct. The bars were institutions in which people reveal themselves. Ah, most nakedly often so that if you were looking for information about someone In a story somebody who had been shot and killed or somebody whose kid had been shot and killed or a family that have been burned out by a fire. Whatever the nature of the story, Ah ah, the good neighborhood bar was probably the best source of information. How well did you write when you had been drinking? Well, I never wrote what While I was drinking. I had a couple of adventures with it early in my career where I tried to drink and then go into the office and do it and I could not do it. I could My fingers with smashed between the keys and nothing would come out. Drinking with newspaper man and I think with a lot of other people, too, is often done and most insidiously after work as a kind of reward. You figure I've really worked at the top of my talent eras hard as I can. Now I'm entitled, you know. And I think that's the in a way the most debilitating part about it because you continue to say to yourself. I'm not an alcoholic, that guy lying in the gutter with his shoes off. He's an alcoholic, but I work. I get up. I go to the office. I bring home a paycheck and I feed my kids, but I think there's Muchmore. Damaged on two people's lives. Two husbands and wives. The Children, too, to talent to to those who work out of a base of talent. By the functioning Ah drunk, the person who can get the work done and I was very careful. I never I never drove. I don't even have a driver's license until after I stopped drinking. And I never drank before I went to work on that. Probably prolong the life longer than I should have to. You're the kind of drinker who could say Well, I drink but I never miss a deadline. Yeah, exactly. I think the most dangerous people most dangerous myth about all of this. Is that But you have to hit bottom. In order to start on your way up on the people I knew who hit bottom never recovered. They were gone, had wet brain or they were dead. They succumb to all kinds of things that were not directly alcohol. Related, not liver diseases, but they died of pneumonia. They died of Bad habits, Basically, so you never brought him down know well that I never bottomed out in the sense that in the classical sense, I mean in this book I wanted to make clear. That I was not going to make this worse than it. Wasit was not about another lost weekend, our days of wine and roses in which you've got the DTs and you're seeing Richard Nixon in the corner covered with ants. If that happened, it happened while I was away. But I never got to that point. It's a book about getting to a certain point, realizing you're doing a lot of damage, even though you're having a lot of fun along the way..

"I'm Ari Shapiro and I'm Stacy Vanik Smith, the legendary newspaper columnist Pete Hamill, has died. He was 85. He was a New York City tabloid crusader, and that made him one of the most influential figures in the city for decades. In 2011 Pete Hamill spoke with W H Y eyes. Fresh air. We came from a tradition where we were paid toe have opinions, but the opinions were based on the reporting. We had been there and looked at it whether it was Vietnam on Northern Ireland or the wrong part of town. Let's bring in NPR media correspondent David Folkenflik Hi, David. Hey, Stacey. So hearing Pete Mammals voice I feel like it tells us a lot about the man but describe him. If you will. Who was he? Cause you can kind of tell he was larger than life and casting unusually large shadow over his newsroom and over the profession, in part because it was New York and your cast such a shadow itself, but in part also was a very different agent journalism. To begin with Hamlet came from very modest beginnings. Born in Brooklyn, the son of Irish immigrants whose poor Catholic he was admitted to a very prestigious Catholic High school in New York, but dropped out joined the Navy kicked about a bit, became a cartoonist in newspapers. On, then joined the life for decades, in newspapers and outside newspapers, a heavy smoker, heavy drinker and self destructive ways that he chronicled in his telling memoir, a Drinking life. He also was are larger than life. His personal life. He dated the actress Shirley Maclaine. He didn't Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis. Linda Bronston lived large in the way that perhaps on Ly, a newspaper. Figure in New York could really pull off. Wow. Well, what kind of a record did he leave in journalism? Oh, he was hugely popular as well as hugely influential. He defined kind of the Big city columnist of his day, along with a handful of others Think of Jimmy Breslin, Mike Royko, Murray Kempton and wrote with Clear eyed compassion during years of tumult, starting Particularly the 19 sixties wrote about racial injustice, poverty, police brutality and corruption. Words and riots, Politicians and poppers. Ah guy who in his words Sato right to his working class readers because he respected them and spent time with them, rather than patronizing them from afar. And in thinking about her living beyond the news pages in his professional life as well. He wrote lyrically about Bob Dylan on Dylan's albums, liner notes in 68 he advised than Senator Bobby Kennedy on his presidential campaign. And when Kennedy was shot in June 1968 There was Pete Hamill, helping to wrestle his assassin to the ground wrote about national issues enough to be put on President Nixon's enemies list. He wrote about Donald Trump in the Central Park, five and as a tabloid editor for a stretch. He promptly went out to hire black and women journalists, at least to start to make up for lost time for profession dominated by white men. What do you think his legacy will be? Think of all the publications he wrote for the New York Post, The Daily News and Newsday. He sees the potential in a kind of tabloid journalism not purely defined by a supermarket gossip. He was a journalism that was brash, not cruel, kind of populism, defined not by the phoniness you might see on cable news outlets. Sadly, those tabloids air, not diminishing their size and ambition, his spiritually ours, I think or fewer and farther between them, one might hope that they do exist. Journalism's moved on. In other ways. NPR's David Folkenflik thinks David President Trump is attacking Democrats in an area where he's trying to win votes the suburbs they want to eliminate single family zoning. Bringing Who knows into your suburbs. Communities are grappling with how single family zone and can exacerbate racial inequity and climate change. NPR's Lauren Summer tells us how states like California are struggling to change housing laws For some climate activists, Susan Kirsch is one of their biggest obstacles. Which may seem strange because she cares about the environment. Yes, you're looking at my plug in Prius connected to my solar panels that plug in the energy back in February, I went to curse his home in Mill Valley, California, a city of mostly single family houses, about half an hour north of San Francisco. Median home prices around 1.5 million. There is a great appreciation. If you just look at the view from here of bushes and trees and seen curses house is exactly the kind in the middle of a huge housing debate. She lives in a walkable neighborhood near a bus line grocery store and bank. With the zoning on Ly allows single family homes here. So some California lawmakers have been trying to allow denser housing like duplexes or four plex is knowing that any of the neighbors.

Anyone who's traveled Officials say those who don't abide by the quarantine will be subject to finds. We have some sad news this morning. Brian Long time New York City journalist and author Pete Hamill has died, his brother, Dennis told several media outlets. Hamels, heart and Kidneys failed after he underwent surgery after a fall last weekend. Mammals career began in the 19 sixties at the New York Post. He went on to work at the Daily News and Newsday, and he penned many books inspired by the neighborhoods and characters of New York City in 2012. On this show, Hamel said, it's important to write about everyday people. If we recognize the humanity of other people were gonna want to some of us. The people that want her tells stories and remember people We'll sit down somewhere with a pen or a computer. Then try to tell those stories. I hope that's still going on. Hamel was 85 years old and you know, Sean, I'm just learning. It's news in the last few minutes. Before your newscast on DH sitting here with chills listening to that clip from the show. Pete Hamill was one of the most impressive journalists I've ever gotten to know, and it's somebody from an older generation. He was a real inspiration and the clip that you chose from all his appearances on this show. Was really at the center of it so good work on that because his reporting was on regular people and the politicians whose decisions affected them. He was sensitive across race and class lines. You know, we talked so much about the culture wars in this country. Pete Hamill developed the trust. Through his on the ground reporting of people in the white, working class and people of color, hyper local neighborhood reporting as well as he was, you know, very savvy on international issues. He lived much of his last years in Mexico. Um and he was the person returned to, I think more than any other in the first few years after 9 11 to have just that right tone on the anniversary of 9 11 To help me mediate the calls of people having you know so many feelings on September 11 2000 to September 11 2003 a number of those occasions. So Pete Hamill was really special. And, you know, having just learned about Hiss passing a few minutes ago. Ah, it's Ah, I just wanted to say a few words in the middle of the newscast since you brought it up. So here you go. Thanks, Brian. And I do think it's important to say to you These days, when there is so much uncertainty and change in New York, it it is good to have something to live up to on. We include you and that as well. For the rest of today. Sunny skies high near 88 degrees tonight mostly clear we'll have a love about 70. You're listening to W n my C. It's just about 11 15. Train later on WN my C and we're going to do call and now on your friendships in the time of cove, it When People ask, how are you? It's you know, often a casual question just meant for you to say fine. How are you, but it's become such a loaded question. That it can become easier not to ask these days, and that's fine for strangers on the street, especially as a positive side effect of wearing masks. That's a decrease in small talk. Maybe that's a good thing. But what about for close friends? I think part of what makes friendships complicated right now is that the story of life is changing faster than normal on if you haven't checked in a while. With even someone you consider a good friend. It can feel like a lot of emotional work to catch up so We wanted to a call in to check in on how your friendships are going in the time of Cove. It's 646435 70 to 86 46435 70 to 80 has the challenge of distance, strengthen some of your relationships and hasn't weakened others where you're talking for lots of friends in the beginning. I know how and like much in April, everybody was discovering zoom and everybody was having zoom reunions with people we went to college with and all these things, And now most of that has faded and you only have energy to keep up with the core. Few is that surprising. To you. Are you surprised by who? Those? Few are? 646435 70 to 80. Tell us a story about how your friendships are going in the time of Cove. It That might help other people have you been reflecting on the nature of friendship? What does it mean to be a good friend to show up for someone when you can't physically show up for them? Cause we're supposed to stay apart. Maybe technology has made it easier for you to stay in contact with some friends and you're rethinking the importance of in person relationships. Or maybe you're exhausted by zoom and touched and phone. And the last thing you want to do after a day of zoom meetings at work If you're one of those people is.

and it's Penn state Minnesota at noon who you like in that game yeah I I can't quite row the boat and it's one I think ten states to town did you know if like a lot of credit they they scuffled through their first three games South Dakota state they picked up the ball in the end zone again stop Fresno on the road and we too and they barely beat Georgia southern a week three and it's spelled like a team that was gonna be like praying for section six and they kind of got in the big ten play it alone people out you know they've really gone on a run with a thump people are but they also haven't played a roster nearly now this meant that I think has stated Sir Ben really quietly lurk lurking in the weeds here and it wouldn't surprise me if if they went into a charge environment on the road and really really Minnesota do you make a what happened last night with wise men in Memphis it looked like the NC double a it said he's an eligible we can't play and then what penny Hardaway's basically a court with him trying to overrule it at least in the short term what happened last night with Wiseman what do you expect to happen with him moving forward it's a great question I really feel like we're at a touch tone time in college sports and like the evolution is coming in there we're not quite there yet and nights like last night are going to be you know parts of pushing things there you know what what Memphis hit is really like a ridiculous rest but I called three or four eighty is that people you know who trade in that NCAA legislation space and they were pretty much a gap that after the NCAA said he's likely not eligible that they still that they still ended up playing him last night a lot of precedent actually an in state case law not that not to put him to sleep here within six eight o'clock but there is a there there's a lot of precedent for injunctions of that nature coming and then you know what what can happen if you do play a player in NCAA says you shouldn't play a player and so essentially what what members did was they went against the advice of the NCAA it is like trying to help them you know like it's not like that that the FBI or the secret service coming in in investigating you with the cooperative process so they basically that evidence we have we think it's likely knows when you should plan they went got the injunction and then basically like I feel like the members present just stuck his middle finger up in NC a and it's not an uncommon thing that we've seen if you if you look at if you look at situations that unfolded in the wake of a federal basketball scandal at campus at Arizona obviously Auburn you know there's been a there's been a handful of these of the schools where Ellis you actually want to wear or if they show that the evidence is has emerged and you know the the the people present based art come get us come punish us in in NCAA enforcement assortment competent so it's it's a fascinating tension in time right now and I mean look yesterday was a day where the potential number one pick in the NBA and NFL draft had eligibility issues and or or or in some way that they can't play now they were very different scenarios you know I'll state is essentially taking the advice and state holding out Tracy on whereas were the Weissman situation is different but you wonder what a touchstone moment god sure yeah two two best players in each of your revenue sports and they are either not supposed to be playing or not playing it's pretty ridiculous I look at it in the simplistic terms both schools could have afforded to not play their guy based on their opponent I mean Ohio state should win anyway I think they're forty point favorites and Memphis was play into the university of Illinois Chicago I mean it wasn't a necessity to have to get him on the court last night you know what well that's what made the the Memphis saying so baffling a lot of people is like Hey you I see wait for it like out of more concrete ruling com and then you can figure it out so I really feel like that was that was what had everyone so baffled last night but you know it's funny dancing at its core is a member driven organization where the members make the rules of the members are clearly showing they don't like the rules and obviously that name image of like the stuff that they broke within the last two weeks

"Into passivity. So that's Pete Hamill. The real Pete Hamill who is just a very soulful presence in our film and Jimmy and Pete were both these Irish-American columnist, but they were very different as the comedian Colin Quinn. Points out in the film had very different styles and approaches and. Pete was also foresighted in when he was for instance, reporting on the Kent state. Shootings in nineteen seventy. And he wrote a column we've talked about how the Slava family rhetoric of a president Richard Nixon who put Pete on the enemy's list. You know can lead to violence. And that's where I think we're going now today we just saw disadvantage El Paso that Trump supporter attacked a cameraman from the BBC. We're gonna see more of that. And I just pray that none of us in journalism are killed, but we will be Salter because that's what happens when you demagogue who is trying to use Hayden in calling us the enemy of the people, you know, which is an old Stalinist line. And when you when you stigmatize group of people as an enemy of the people there, no longer your opponents or your adversaries, what do you do to your enemy, you you attack them, sometimes physically? So so we're we're going down a pretty dangerous row. But one of the things that's interesting is that a lot of this red does resonate from the Nixon administration and Agnew attack. Pete Hamill personally the quote. Irrational ravings of Pete Hamill and a lot of other journalists in ways that we find sort of amusing now because William Safire wrote funny lines for my calling us nattering nabobs of negativism would Agnew said about the press. So that's nicely. Humorous alliterative Louis, but but at the time it was also kinda kinda scary. So in some ways we have been here before let's take a question from here in the green space. Hi there. Morning. So I don't know. How many have you got the c Howard shows us night. But I thought I had a pretty strong. I like this green new deal. And then so the metrics that were applied and said, well, I don't know anymore. Do I like not like so I did not see how it Scholtz last night. Did he do a town hall meeting on CNN something like that? Yeah. So for example, he said, I think one of the one of the one of the metrics you said you have to you'd have to modify building three thousand buildings day. I think no. Yeah. Three thousand a day another metric was a cost of the program would have been. I mean, there's something like it would bust the budget. So it's not that new. We wanted to do everything very quickly. Very well, and oh we can't afford it. Jonathan people a number of people are seizing on this idea that it would require retrofitting every building at America something like that. So this is a in some ways of perilous time for progressives. Who who want a green new deal because it's like a blank slate, and and Trump and Howard Schultz who has no business getting press coverage right now, he shouldn't get press coverage just because you're a billionaire. You know, if he gets to ten percent in the polls or something then maybe the pressure beat paying attention to him. But they should be ignoring him now and people should understand that if he does run a he will vary possibly reelect Donald Trump because even if he only gets the four percent where he is right now, most of that would come from Democrats. So he's. This would be one of the most selfish destructive things imaginable. If this man Howard Schultz who's coffee I like, but if he goes ahead and runs for president. But what he's raising is important for Democrats to think about because you've gotta have a smaller target of opportunity for the other side. And if McConnell and Trump and others can make this green new deal into a into a negative that would be a real problem. So progressives have to say, no, we're not we don't have anything in there that says you retrofit five thousand buildings day. These are aspirations, and you know, when John F Kennedy said we're going to go to the moon by the end of the nineteen sixties, you know, people say, well, if you do that it's going to cost x y and z first of all nine years earlier, you can't even guess at what it will actually cost the cost of retrofitting buildings could come way down. None of these numbers. That are applied to it by the left or the right. Have anything to do with? Reality. So the whole green new deal should just be looked at as a way of focusing the attention of the country on climate change and job growth at the same time. Let me take a phone call from Julie in Hastings online to Julia on WNYC with Jonathan alter. Hi there. Hi, brian. Thanks for taking my call. I. Breslin and handled today and one popped into my head possibly journalist reader of was David Gonzales who. The neighborhoods of New York. But but then takes the lesson to a national even lyrical level. Times David and I were colleagues at Newsweek in the eighties. I worked at Newsweek writing a column for more than twenty years. He's a great example of that. This work is still being done Dan berry, and Jim Dwyer who are both in resonated Hamill deadline artists, and they are doing this work all the time. And there are quite a number of other people and other cities who are still doing it. But they're not nearly as many as there used to be. And so they say there a million stories in the naked city, a lot of those stories are not being told, and we're all poor for that that we don't have a vibrant local news, and you have these these private equity firms, they're buying up local newspapers closing them or radically cutting their staff and then sell. Out the real estate. So the there's sort of vulture capitalism that is really hurting local news. And then in some cases, like at the new York Daily News is just the internet and other market forces. They used to have four hundred people working there. They now have forty five journalists. So you just can't cover a city the size of New York and any kind of effective way with what's going on the financial crisis the business model crisis for journalism. Excuse me, notwithstanding though, the review of the film in the Atlantic praised Hamilton breslin, certainly for being journalists who came from the working class writing about people who are disenfranchised, but the writer selfie Gilbert says the movie glossed over for as good as it was in other ways, how the ribald culture, she put it might have helped keep a generation of non white male talented reporters on the sidelines. And also makes it seem like good grassroots journalism went out with Brislin and Hamel when there really is a new generation of loud mouth community focused diverse. Journalists changing the world today. Yes. I mean, it's interesting because we had we've had about. Forty reviews and even surf Gilbert's was very positive saying, no, you should see this film. But I I think she makes an interesting point. It's it's always easy to ask somebody to make a film different from the when they were making. But at the end of our film, we have less pain. Who has I mentioned died not long after we we interviewed him, and he joins Earle Caldwell another well known African American calmest the daily news. They don't believe that Jimmy and Pete were preventing this young generation from coming up. So it would have been wrong for us to put that in the film. They believe that Jimmy and Pete did more for African American journalists than any other journalists day, they knew now are there more voices now from the community and do we have a greater diversity of voices? Yes. Is that a good thing? Absolutely. And and Robert krulwich less pain, Gloria Steinem, and others all said at the very end of our film, and maybe Sophia thought we didn't do enough on this. They all said that they're they're great people coming along Spike Lee, also that we've we've passed the baton to a new generation. So I'm very hopeful about that new generation there's a lot of talent out there. The problem is that the business model for local news is broken. And we haven't figured out how to make the internet work yet. And just one other thing kind of on on that point. Because should be mentioned. I think since we're speaking in glowing terms about Jimmy breslin. He got suspended for racist sexist rant against the young Korean American woman. Journalists who criticized him, you know, it made me think today he might be banished for that rather than suspended for two weeks. And maybe he would deserve it. So yes, this story of white male privilege here with these two as well. Taylor with him. Well, we certainly wanted to raise that we dealt extensively in the film with this moment, which was the lowest moment of his career where he insulted a Korean-American reporter at Newsday in unforgivable terms. And we leave it to the viewer to decide whether it was right to suspend him or whether he should have been fired at the time is Newsday considered doing. And you know, I think one of the things that we wanted people to think about is. This concept of zero-tolerance that that is now take becoming a little bit of a problem for the Democratic Party because you can get yourself in a bite. It sounds good. But whether it's on drug use where it doesn't really work in in schools or on on some of the metoo questions where. The Harvey Weinstein get conflicted with the Al Franken's d wanna have like a zero tolerance for everything. And one of the things we tried to raise in the film without letting Jimmy president off the hook and offer this terrible thing that he did and said is what would have happened if he had been fired. So he did some really important work after that. Really important particularly on race issues. And you know, you do have to think as you're assessing wealth nowadays, he would be fired. And maybe he would would have been replaced by that young Korean American woman journalist who what if actually by that time not only because she was working there. But by that time, the newsroom's were fully integrated and had many women and minorities working for them. So those guys weren't standing in the way of of by that time. So, you know, I don't I don't think that. It's a sort of a binary question, you either get these old these old progressive Irish-American or you get this new generation you want both you wanna mix we just haven't it left. I want to end with one piece of breaking news. I see it's being reported that it looks like Trump will sign the Bill to avert another government shutdown and lick his wounds and fight another day another way. But there's this whole episode mean anything for you as a political analyst for twenty twenty. We should remember the Republicans lost politically lost a shutdown in two thousand thirteen but they did really well in the midterms next year. Yeah. So it's too early to know how any this will play out, and we're not going to be talking about this very much in twenty twenty. But what it does indicate is that Trump is a horrible negotiator. He could have had twenty five billion dollars for his wall in two.

"The eighties. He was just another luxury and Trump stood naked revealed is the spokesman for that tiny minority of Americans who lead well defended lives. Forget poverty and its causes. The get the degradation and squalor of millions fry them into. That was Pete Hamill writing after more than a decade in prison. The guys were afraid when another man confessed to the crime and the DNA matched breslin took up. The cause for someone else who came unjustly in the glare of publicity and rush to judgment, a rookie NYPD cop named Sabella Borjas. Tell me that story. A woman cop named Sabella Borjas is fired from the New York police department because before she was a cop. She had posed nude for a magazine called beaver, which is Jimmy later wrote is a magazine men read with one hand. So she was fired, and she was just pilloried in the press and Jimmy took up her cause and said, you know, why should she be fired for something that she did before she was on the force. And why isn't the police union representing her? That's what they're supposed to do. The police department should have been proud of the pictures says they pulled that at least one member of the forces a marvelous physical condition. The police union then takes out full page ads attacking Jimmy breslin. But eventually is Collins are so persuasive that a court reinstates her and they saw their job is sticking up for the ordinary guy and woman who is often neglected by the news media. And so even though they were these larger than life characters, and they certainly knew every celebrity in the world, and they covered big stories with major Stoorikhel figures their bread and butter was more writing about people who just needed a hand. We're talked about them being a breed apart. What that meant literally was that they typically do not follow the herd of other journalists there pros was spectacular. But the angles they came up with were equally profound. When JFK was shot. Breslin followed the story to Dallas like. Hundreds of other reporters, but he came up with an angle that makes your heart. Skip a beat it covered the assassination through the eyes of the ER doctor, and then a few days later, he covers the Arlington cemetery burial of the dead president from the perspective of the grave digger Ali. Could you please be here by eleven o'clock this morning Kowalczyk.

Thanks, bob. Good to be here. Breslin and ham over giants. But they were giants mainly of the last century and mainly of New York City for the benefit of younger generations, and those of our listeners beyond the five boroughs who are these guys every community in the United States had a local newspaper columnist who was basically a Jimmy breslin wanna be. That's how big breslin was Pete Hamill was not as famous as Jimmy breath. Zlin, but he was a sort of dashing figure he was dating the most famous woman in the world, Jacqueline Onassis and a top movie star Shirley MacLaine at the same time. Neither of these guys finished college. They both came from the streets, and they reported on the streets. What's remarkable about these two? And I guess, you know, this better than anybody is that there were larger than life at almost exactly the same way they were pug nationless creatures of the street pounding out columns for the tabloids. In fact, here's one of the star. Journalists you interviewed for the film. I mean in the early days of journalism, you didn't have an Ivy league degree, and you never made a particularly good salary. You were much more launch Shirley of the street. Then you were when the whole thing became a profession that voice sounds familiar. Here's Pete Hamill expressed a similar thought once.

This is what comes out that when I'm gonna get Australia stripper under fire for drinking beer from a digital do. Yeah. Came up for me. So that's what came up for me. I was a little bit. Fishing water features. Are we going to is the government gonna close down again Schule Trump said yesterday in an interview at the Wall Street Journal that it's less than fifty fifty that he thinks they've made a deal. I think what's going to happen is they will not make a deal. You know, it's there's now a conference committee. There's nineteen people. I don't know what's happening cleaning up. It's nice nineteen members congress on a conference committee that they're supposed to try to figure out funding for the wall slash border slash steel slats fencing, and I think they will not do that to his faction and at the end of it he will declare national merge and use that money that military funding, and they'll be huge legal fight. But it'll be a protracted legal fight. So he'll be able to say I got wall funding, even though he eventually may not because he's taking money if he does do national -mergency he taking money allocated by congress or something entirely different. So can he take the money and start to build while being run? Yes, you can declare national emergency allocate money. Take money that's allocated. Elsewhere and say we need it for what happens with hurricane. Yes. The issue is the legal fight will be over is not after forty five days of hand-wringing number can see. But that's I think what will happen. So I don't think the government that would not mean the government shutdown again, it would just mean he would declare national all so you don't think the government will. I think at the end of it. He he is sufficiently cowed by the government shutdown that he clearly I mean, he didn't look he starts the government shut the emergency. All he ends it saying, well, we don't have any money for the wall. But we're going to reopen the government for three weeks. I mean, he players emergency to avoid the second show. Correct. Okay. But he won right? Always cleared on the Thursday show. He won. I don't know why it's complicated. When he says he wins. We'll be back. We'll be back with Email jingle. I'm Tony Kornheiser.
