Comic-Con to hold in-person Thanksgiving weekend convention
"This week organizers of san diego comic con announced that they would hold an in person comecon special edition that was already eyebrow raising what raised even more eyebrows was when they decided they were going to announce it for for some reason. a comecon. special edition is coming on thanksgiving weekend. I do not understand this. It makes no sense to me. And i know that it also confuses you which is why you and several of our great colleagues on this are people responding to this as an idea being floated by the good people of comecon. Not great dan. Yeah we. I did a bunch of reporting alongside friend of the five aaron couch and are fearless leader. Boris kid we reached out to networks and studios and movie studios and book comic book publishers. And everyone in between artists cetera and the general consensus is yet good luck in addition to there being a big question of if it is actually going to be safe enough to have an in person event. A lot of people are saying for a multitude of reasons. This is just not going to work. It's from a practical standpoint. Most people haven't seen their families and over a year and thanksgiving is a special holiday. Obviously i don't need to see that. But when everyone is looking forward to seeing their family again since the holidays from two thousand twenty were awash and yet the idea of having to sacrifice the first holiday season together to go to comecon is not one. That's going over well and then you get into all the logistical part of of what's going on here. So look thanksgiving is one of the most expensive travel weekends of the year. It's one hundred percent bound to be bad this year. Conditions permitting but it think of it this way most of these and studios and streamers and especially lower level and comic book publishers etc. They have their budget for the year. Already in place when you get to the end of the year. You're sitting there saying we'll crap now. I got to spend money to get to san diego or now. I have to spend money on a booth or talent prep or we have to fly people out to get to get there and then you get into it and like look. Even though. The event is friday through sunday. You're going to have to the load in. If you're a dealer on the convention floor is going to be on thursday if you have a friday panel the fly talent on thanksgiving day to get them to san diego you have to send pr and security and everyone else to get there ahead of the panel you you have run throughs you have all these other things all these logistical pieces. That no one's going to want to do on a holiday

Okay for me to get in guess writers immune you just hit it off and you were like. Hey everything you write is about the us. What about a perspective from france. Know that exactly what i mean. That was the first thing i said to you. I said this is amazing. We need this content. thank you doing it. There are podcasts. that are outside of the us. I don't know if you will. That's the hard part. The entire industry not just like the podcast creation side but especially ad tech focus is just on the united states and i mean.

Sharon podcasts advertising but what people seem to forget it was something like one point. Three zero point four billion worldwide. Let's see it's one point. Four right point.

My sad thanks. Yeah no i mean. It definitely comes from years of personal reflection as well. I've been listening to podcasts. For probably about ten years and that is also how long.

Yeah chris so on the biden campaign. my title is the community content director so effectively. I was tasked with you know engaging various communities online kind of exactly what it says I was a part of the digital partnerships team which was kind of like the innovation hub of the digital team on the campaign so we were tasked with seating content about joe biden on the internet anywhere. That wasn't through our own channels so whether that was the publishers are different platforms different partnerships. Anything that wasn't like our social media or our email or our advertising so influencers played a big role in that i also headed up the digital partnerships team during the inauguration which i might refer to as pick that presidential inaugural committee There we also utilized influencers in both cases. We really utilize them. It's kind of an external messenger or external channel for our broader goals. And is this something this focus on influence. There is something that really came about this election cycle or really became more sort of professional this election cycle or have you also seen it in the prior work on campaigns. You've done yeah.

How To Leverage Key People Of Influence You Dont Know
"Every industry has they keep people of influence. These are the people that get quoted in articles and interviews. The people who speak at conferences. Everybody knows who those people are in their industry and chances are if you are not one of those people you want to get closer to someone who is it's all about helping to grow your industry credibility perhaps get more connections essentially. It's about getting closer to the some and a really simple way to do these but also effective is to go and find an article of that person has written pull out some quite from that and then put them in your own words in your own context and your own explanations in a long form blog post driven long form linked in post so you pull out the quote of the person and then you explain in your own words what they were saying and maybe why you agree or disagree with that and that becomes your own piece of content. Now make sure that you give the attribution to the place where you got from either whether it was an interview conference presentation because that's good practice and if you wanna go a step further a lot of smart people right now doing these creating social media tiles that i can then share with my network and as an example. I recently contributed to the spa. Business handbook by just sent me a nice little social media tile. That has my image the quote that i gave and of course a nice frame around it with the spa business. Branding that says you can go and check out the handbook here similar to what you might get. If someone speaks at conference and trying to promote the conference they will send you a little social media with your photo the name of the topic that you're going to be gone and then a link to where you can join the conference and you can do the same thing you don't have to be a publisher or a conference organized is to do that. You could be an individual who liked. Somebody's content found that content. Interesting pulled out the quote put it in an arsenal frame and then instead of the the spa business or the professional beauty branding on it. You could just put your own twitter handle linked in handle on there
The Power of Radical Self-Love
"Welcome sonia i thank you so much for having me you know i was so excited to have you be part of my podcast when your team reached out. Because i've been a fan of your book ready. And i follow you on social media and was so exciting to hear that we're talking now about your revised and expanded second edition along with the workbook. Bet you're gonna be. Is it in april in march march. Sixteen okay great. So why don't you tell me why you decided to revise and expand your second edition and how the workbook complements the initial book. Absolutely so first of all. Thanks so much for having me glad to be in conversation so my publisher approached. My publisher approached me to write the book. The very first time i wrote and then they came back and they were like a second addition and what really was useful in maybe be willing to entertain the idea. Was i knew that the very first edition was really about our individual journey with radical. self love. How do we use this concept of radical self love to transform how we feel in our own bodies how we feel about ourselves how we relate to ourselves based on a clear understanding of the messages we see received from the world and the piece that always matter to me was great now that we have dealt with this internal relationship. How do we use this framework to deal with how we deal with other bodies because that's the structural that's the systemic. That's not we begin to you know. Really tear down the walls of oppression. And so the second edition really felt like an opportunity to have that conversation. Now the challenge in a second edition is they do away with the first edition so the first edition which i thought was so necessary. Valuable in terms of giving folks practical fools about how to apply radical self love to their own lives. We were gonna lose some of that in creating the second edition
School Shootings Drove Stephen King To Take 'Rage' Off The Shelves
"In this episode. We'll cover the bachmann book rage chapters one through twenty. Let's start the show high school senior. Charlie decker facing expulsion for salting. His chemistry teacher sets the contents of his locker on fire gets a pistol and returns to his algebra class or he kills the teacher and then a history teacher who comes to investigate holding the rest of the class degeorge decker reveals information about his troubled childhood and some of the other students begin to share their own secrets and feelings. That's quite the setup. sean. Yes so jay. This story rage was originally written at least started being written by king in one thousand nine hundred sixty six when he was a senior in high school and then he finished it in one thousand nine hundred seventy one and at that point it was titled getting it on Decker says that phrase multiple times throughout the section of the book king wanted to publish it like under his name right away but his publisher doubleday did want over saturate the market so this was the first case where they said all right. Well let's do it under a pseudonym and he submitted it as getting it on by guy pillsbury which is kings grandfather's name so that was going to be the original pseudonym he was going to use and there's a twitter user who just started following a couple of weeks ago named guy pillsbury so i thought that was a nice deep cut that is really deep. Cut yeah when he submitted his guy pillsbury. A number of people at the publishing house knew about king having a book called getting it odd and so the secret was already out. They pulled it and said okay and then he resubmitted as as richard bachman and submitted his with the new title rage and richard. Bachman i was because he had a richard stark book sitting on his desk and bachman turner overdrive was playing on the radio and so he was looking around. And there. you go richard bachman. Sorta like the Deficient the light bulb coming together to form the homer simpson logo number one. Lucky joe exactly so. This is actually his fourth published book. It came after kerry salem slot in the shining and just before the stand this was nineteen seventy seven it was published and then it was obviously republished in the bachman books in one thousand nine hundred eighty five. And if you're like my father you'll notice that this is not a book that is easy to come by nowadays. He was unable to find it when he was looking forward on. Different places and that is because after number of school shootings that had some tenuous ties to rage. There's at least one where the kid had a copy of the book his locker but some of the other ones may have referenced it or not king let the book go out of print in one thousand nine hundred ninety eight so all the other bachman books are now published as standalone novels. But this one is not in the forward to the bachmann book. Blaze king writes about rage. This is now out of print and a good thing. And if you go to the stephen king dot com website look up rage. No future printings will be made of this novel. At stevens request due to the sensitive nature of the content
Microsoft Attempting to Buy Discord?
"Reportedly interested in purchasing scores were ten billion dollars reports surfacing that multiple parties are interested in purchasing the communications giant Microsoft emerges as a possible front-runner reports continue to say that discords price tags, exceeds more than ten billion dollars for the gamer Chad application. Just last year Microsoft tried to buy social media app Tik-Tok and had talks to acquire housewife at Pinterest Microsoft most recent purchase came in the form of game developers any max media publishers of Elder Scrolls and doom for the low price of seven point five billion dollars. All this being said No Deal in place as of yet wage board could be using this as a ploy to increase the high prices if they choose to go public which also remains a possibility Discord is also held discussions with epic games and Amazon speaking of Microsoft Edge. Xbox users May notice a slight change to their online gaming as Xbox Live. The name is really no more a Rebrand has now made it the Xbox network a Microsoft spokesperson said the rebranding first of the month on a line Xbox online service and is intended to distinguish it from Xbox Live Gold memberships. So Xbox Live still exists just as gold memberships.
Microsoft Exploring $10B Acquisition of Gamer Chat App Discord
"I sources began to report late yesterday. That discord was exploring a sale of itself seeking evaluation of ten billion dollars or so then bloomberg reported that it was microsoft was in advanced stages of negotiations to maybe by discord for about that exact ten billion dollar target range but also that discord is maybe more likely to just go public and test the waters itself quoting bloomberg. Actually you'll note there tempering. Their initial reporting here a bit quote discord has been talking to potential buyers and software. Giant microsoft is in the running but no deal is imminent said the people who asked not to be identified because the discussions are private discord is more likely to go public than sell itself. One person said representatives for microsoft and discord declined to comment venturebeat reported earlier on monday. That discord was engaged in sales tax microsoft. Which last year sought to buy social media app tiktok and held talks to acquire. Pinterest has been shopping for assets that would provide access to thriving communities of users. According to people familiar with the company's thinking microsoft's xbox business has also been expanding the suite of subscription perks. It provides as part of its game pass offering microsoft shares. Were up about one point. Two percent in the first minutes of trading tuesday quote microsoft possibly acquiring discord makes a lot of sense as it continues to reshape. Its gaming business. More towards software and services said bloomberg intelligence analyst. Matthew kanter men. There's a big opportunity to bundle discord premium nitro into the game. Pass service to drive more. Subscriptions from last reported number of eighteen million and quote after microsoft's recent seven and a half billion dollar purchase of xeni. Max media owner of the elder scrolls and doom publisher bethesda software and acquisition of discord with signal the redmond washington-based software giants willingness to keep investing in its video game unit and quote. Yeah integrating discord deeply into xbox stuff does make a ton of sense. Although i think they could make an exclusive wall off discord as something that you can only get if you do x. box but also the larger narrative here is that microsoft keeps trying to acquire social networks. Tick tock pinterest. And i keep hearing that one of the motivations for that is to get them all on a juror is that they've invested so heavily to build out this cloud infrastructure that they need big projects to justify their existence. That was always what i heard about google getting into cloud gaming but can this be true. Can someone smarter than me. Explain the economics behind that theory but also discord apparently runs on top of google cloud. So i guess there is value in kicking one leg of the stool out from under your rival right. Maybe google cloud is so far behind and week that its rivals. Maybe think they can strangle it in the crib

"To constantly as The various Regulators you know put forth opinions. Are the things. Come up right right. So it's it's a it's a. It's always going to be moving. It's always going to be improving but i feel pretty good about where we are Obviously we could be better along Just just looking at europe and gdp are specifically. I think even even now only fifty percent of publishers actually have a in place Not all cpa's compliant with the tcl. So even if you have a on your site if it's not passing a signal to your vendors the note the vendors will have no idea whether they have consent or not so there is still you know. Some companies have taken a really hard stance on that like we will not bid Or we will not draw cookie without a consent signal and that's been fantastic rate. That's the good side of things but still to be done early. Do you have a sense of so. Obviously the there's still more work to be done. Do you have a sense of how much revenue. Publishers lost associated with inadequate. What associated with this compliance challenge in terms of like okay. We're no longer collecting data from this segment of the audience. Or have you seen any independent assessment of the of that impact. The business and i haven't I mean you know. We've we've got some from our publisher partners You know we had some day where they saw like certain certain drops from from specific. Sp's or or exchanges and they it right you know. They moved their supply around To wear to the ones that were compliant while everybody else was catching up Not not not really. I think that the the publishers have a have pitted pretty well. There's always the problem with. It growing the where we already have a lack of third party cookies and that spreading and the value of that decreasing but Right so it. When you say that just to be clear your first that was the name. Safari initially gave tonight their privacy features. But are you referring to that more. Broadly as like a cross browser. It like we call it third party challenge spaces of yes so safari kinda did it. I did fire. Fox came along and this is exactly what chrome is talking about doing as well as By default making third party. Cookies disallow. Right right got it. So that's a separate challenge from the regulation regulatory one in some ways it's larger More immediate challenge. Even though the regulatory stuff happened i because the gears of law just turned much more slowly than gears. Google and company but i would like to merge those conversations. I wanna talk. I because i have a question about like as us privacy laws come in to play cpa plus any new legislation that comes out during the next incoming administration How do folks like the i b as well.

"With technology partners I'm curious just stepping back from ignoring your quad casts connection for the moment. Who do you think are the best set of publisher partners. The publishers can should be looking at this point. You don't need to name specific companies but we have a lot of different types of companies. You have ad network businesses. You have S ps you have You know a ad sales reps rep firms you have You know different kinds of platforms that are offering like a -ffiliated model I wonder what do you what do you think is the right approach to partnership for publishers. Who need technology support to achieve the the unity that thanks to grab the opportunity to have right now. Yeah so i mean. I think you know first and foremost they need to. They need to think about You know the the consumer experience and the consumer's right to privacy right so for me. It's it's a partner that can help them navigate those waters Make sure that they helped him be compliance rate and and make sure that they are transparent with their customers. They give their customers the ability to control their data. Understand how it's being used. Who's using it and for what purposes. But at especially at this time it's important for that technology to also speak to the it space because there is opportunity there to do something more than just contextual advertising with with but then taking longer term interest third party cookie going away and you know. combining privacy and identity into a single solution. Not for me. That's kinda number one that's their. That's their their biggest front line. Challenge right now partner with would company do you think is there is the right way to go or play the field. I mean in the s p space. We've seen this movement towards auction duplication which somewhat reversing right now but any thoughts on that. You'll see if you don't feel if you feel like the. You've you have to give a conflicted answer. Then we could scale. I think it's. I'm not not conflicted. I i think that You know everybody's in the same place right now and we're all going to have to sit and watch what happens and participates so there's going to be in the early stages some playing field to see what works..

"I can't help publishers Make the revenue that that they need to produce the quality that they they need to produce in that. I personally many others enjoy so that. That's that's kind of like how i ended up a quad cast right working on the on the publisher in and building the You know the insights tools in giving them deep disability into their audiences so they can respond to rfp's And really sell that first party data that they have okay great. And when you look back so you you were helping. Regional news accompanied both regional news providers under larger publishing umbrella try and adapt their strategies to this this internet opportunity and it hasn't gone that great. A lot of those companies many of those publishers don't exist anymore or the consolidated and their newsrooms shrunk down to the point where you know. Their pale pale shadow. What they once had been Now there are exceptions to that. I mean the new york times is thriving company Washington boat post is innovating The atlantic is doing really interesting things. And i'm sure we could probably rattle off a handful of others that have found. You know a great business needs but when you look back as it turned out worse than you expected. It would given the opportunity of the internet for these news. publishers In in in some ways yes and in some ways no. I mean we we. We really saw it coming back when i remember when google news launched You know and everybody was like all gung ho on who will. It's like the best search engine ever. it's going to change the way that we we navigate. The internet in an absolutely did and people looked at it as an opportunity. But i think there were some rumblings in the early days with google news that you know. Hey these google is taking our our headline in our lead in our in our images that's our content rate that's our proprietary data and information and they're selling ads against it so that was like the first sort of glimpse we had into. You know where things were going to go and you could kind of like project that out from there then face becomes got poems long starts doing the same exact thing and i think the industry as a whole because the industry has always been really really worried about You know how do we make revenue. How do we save costs. You know the news holes are shrinking. you know things are. It's really expensive to run a newspaper..

"The confusion between the open access publishing movement and predatory journals is perhaps for another edition of the show. It's controversial you say. Both charge authors to publish their pipers. Instead of slugging raiders all subscribe as with phase so the open access argument for that is that opens up scientific knowledge. Like never before I phrase it up from behind traditional gentle pie walls but some believe these author pies model creates inherent conflict of interest and that predatory traded treat publishes of taking advantage of that in order to build prophets and taking advantage of scientists to who had desperate to get published in the publish. This you'll perish culture of science. Some of them are taking up the offer because they're being tricked by the predatory publishers. And that's why I use the term predatory because they're preying on them. They're they're preying on their weaknesses that people need to get published so people are earning degrees. People are getting promotions at universities. People people earning tenure in some cases based on a publications in low quality fake predatory journals that don't conduct any peer review and have have almost no settling at all they accept everything and we've also learned that Pharmaceutical companies are publishing their research to justify the the efficacy of their new medicines are using predatory journals to do that as well. What do you think the key drivers of the predatory journal Sane has been? It's easy easy money. As Jeffrey bills blacklist of predatory journals grew in influence as did. His reputation publishes publishes and others pushed back angrily at him at his criteria for inclusion on the least at his lone ranger approach at his singular antagonism some of open access publishing some went straight to his universities ladyship to attack his credibility and he became a kind of hybrid of hero in. I'm Tara how did his university respond for the most part for the first few years they were supportive of me and the legal office did help me. It is some tricky situations you know that I had gotten in because of the threats from the publishers but towards the end I think they grew weary of me a and the support decreased. Did you ever receive pressure to shutdown. You'll blog from your university. I received a pressure but it wasn't pressure to shut shut down the blog. Things became increasingly uncomfortable towards the end before I retired I retired a year ago. Did it become uncomfortable. The university he did that some things I used to have an office and they took me out of an office and put me into a cubicle. They hired a new person to work in the library. He had two years of library experience and they made him be my supervisor. And you know part of Predatory publishing there's a broader context to it. There's a social movement behind open access publishing. A lot of people want to kill off the traditional publishers and had them all replaced with open access journals so that everybody throughout the world connects us all published research and it's a very Left wing social movement. And so the person that came in as my supervisor was among among those people and so we had strikingly kingly different ideologies about scholarly publishing so. That was way that they were pressured. Me Why did you shut down bills least in in. I think it was two thousand seventeen. Taint it has reincarnated with anonymous editors in some sense to protect themselves from what you went through. But why did you decide to shut it down. Well in January worry of that year I learned that the university was working with one of the publishers on my list and the results of that was that the university initiated a research. I misconduct investigation against me and I knew I hadn't engaged any research. Misconduct myself because research misconduct means means of falsification fabrication or plagiarism. By definition and I knew I hadn't done any of that yet they started this case against me and I felt very stigmatized pies by it and that kind of sealed it for me with the university I take another action against me and now here was something major. A research misconduct case. And that's why I decided to stop the list. What was the outcome of that case the outcome in July of twenty seventeen was snow? Research misconduct found that. Make you feel it made me feel horrible. I felt like my own university that I worked at for seventeen years. I was turning against me and I felt stigmatized and I felt like I really can continue the work. And that's why I shut down the blog and the lists you. I think that was a trigger for that action. Sure it was the publisher that they worked with was a big one and the predatory Tori publishers. The ones that are doing really well are rich. They have lots and lots of money. They can hire lawyers to go after people and they can organiz well. And there are several very large very successful predatory publishers out there and and they have a lot of power and they. We'll go after anybody who threatens their income was that publisher the publisher was frontiers. So you'd assist them to be a predatory publisher and yeah and I had lots of evidence from stuff that they had published. They published an article about Chem trails in the Sky Cam conspiracy theory yeah. They published an article about that which they quickly retracted. After I wrote a blog post about it. They they published an article saying that. HIV doesn't cause AIDS. So I had lots of lots of solid evidence that they weren't really conducting Valla Peer Review. I mean that's bad science. It's not necessarily making them and predatory publisher plenty of crap lanes in good journals But it gets gets retracted and publishing junk. Science is one of the criteria that I use to evaluate publishers. I mean you're if you submit at an article to a publisher thinking it's good publisher when they're publishing crap science poor science that is a type of predation against honest researchers. They don't want to be associated shared with junk science a spokesperson for the University of Colorado Denver. Where Jeffrey held a tenured faculty position would not comment on any research misconduct misconduct investigation but tolls friction that the university quote defended and supported Professor Bills Academic Freedom to pursue predatory publishing as part of? He's scholarship.

"By a bunch of other scientists and so it should. That's it's peer review. It's designed to Cape Science rigorous experiments well-designed the results real usable and reproducible. Many predatory regionals site. They conduct peer review. That in fact most of them don't do appear review they go through the motions of period view. They might have like a stock appear of you that they use for every paper that's submitted and basically the papers are accepted in just published almost immediately as soon as the invoices paid and so pure review view is it's it's a fundamental component of how honest journals carry out their business of looking at manuscripts and seeing seeing whether they're fatally flawed or whether they can be improved and whether they're acceptable for publication dive. Moa Is Director of the Center for Gen in a Lola at the Ottawa Hospital Research Institute at the University of Ottawa. Hey and colleagues. Just hosted a global summit on predatory journals because they what a building consensus Ivo what they are and how to shut them down. So is these sorts of behaviors and many other behaviors that are not trustworthy. Jiffy deal when something is published in a scholarly journal that doesn't represent validated science. Then then it pollutes the whole scientific record and can't build on junk science or if you do the future science isn't real science either On science fiction. ABC Iran with Natasha. Mitchell we're looking at predatory publishes and the threat. They pose to science scholarship in truth so back to science journalist John by Hannah. And he's sting operation own predatory journals. mm-hmm you wrote a fake paper. In fact you you actually wrote a computer program to write hundreds of spoof papers yeah actually. It spat out thousands. I ended up only needing hundreds. He's computer program changed the authors affiliations specific chemicals cancer cells and other ingredients have. He's experiment but the funding was pretty much the same and this study was potentially. We'll changing. Yes it was a thrill cure cancer at this John. I was basically claiming that this chemical that I found in this little lichens little plant. Plant like creature was able to kill cancer cells in solution. So you know in principle could inject stuff into your blood like you doing chemotherapy be and it would hopefully kill off the cancer cells and I had these very impressive charts showing the results very impressive. Yeah at face value. The Piper hype is sanded convincing but they will all seed in with glaring eras and this would take literally one minute just one glance really of any reasonable double science who was doing peer review of this paper. You just look at the numbers represented this charts and they just make no sense at all. Just don't make any sense. And the design of his experiment experiment that was fatally flawed too. I mean these are the kind of mistakes that highschool stupid mic like these. This isn't even college level. Mistakes this is just like the biggest most most embarrassing scientific mistake imagine. This isn't subtle stuff and then John Wind even further. I just wanted to like bring it to the next level so at the ended the paper. I have the authors say that you know the next thing we're going to do is test this in humans which to any reviewer should be the biggest red flag I mean aside from the fact that science it looks like completely junk. That's just completely unethical. Then he targeted generals suspected to be predatory including two run by ex scrape one cold medicinal chemistry another biology amid a season of eight months. He submitted ten pipers awake. And what happened. Next is incredible incredible. Any reasonable publisher should have looked at that. Paper said not in no way on that publishing this a lot of journals. Dd Saturday status. Give us give us the very murray doc stats well. The darkest of dark stats is that sixty percent of the publishers accepted my article. So did any any of those sixty percent ask you to make any kind of amendments almost never when they did it it involved formatting trivial changes often they would it asked me to add citations two papers that they'd published which is also really not a good practice but now they almost never did any substantial review an even in the few exceptions that DDP to conduct some kind of Scientific Peer Review Jones paper was often accepted anyway. I even after a damning review. What's more to mainstream totten's of Science Publishing Elsevier and sage court out not much to their embarrassment? Yeah it was grim. That was not a great day for Scientific Publishing and so over. The course of that experiment took months to finish. I just sort of got more and more pessimistic about the publishing world. It really changed my view of the whole industry that I was part of some people who a had been caught up in this thing did contact me afterwards. In fact we got at least one angry letter to the editor from one of these journals that got caught with its pants down but I don't have that much sympathy for them because they had the one job. You know if you're the editor of a journal all you gotTa do is withhold the integrity of the journal and clearly weren't doing that some editors of the more reputable journals I think expressed a sense of betrayal of trust and I wonder what you'll response constant. Oh Yeah Yeah. Absolutely everyone craft all over the whole thing. How else would they have reacted? It was basically like taking the giant dump on their entire world. A couple of editors lost their jobs but considering that they had jobs that a fake journal. I I don't see that it's such a big loss. So he's a handful of us now. In the industry the Predatory publishing industry has not gone away has not left silence infect all indications that it has grown massively strong if you carried out the sting operation again. What do you think might happen? Oh I think the picture would probably be worse if I were to do it again though. I'll tell you what I would do. Is I would send a sample papers to the the publishers who have the more traditional model as well It kind of amazed me that this whole problem that I uncovered was dismissed by many for the simple fact that I hadn't also submitted fake papers to different kinds of journals at so they felt like they were being unfairly picked mcdon- so so did some people in the open access publishing movement and it's a passionate movement. Did they think that you had unfairly. Targeted them in particular. Oh yeah absolutely. They dragged through the mud. It was really unpleasant cleaning shells for the traditional scientific publishing world which is hilarious. If if you've known me at all it's really quite the opposite. I'm quite an advocate for open access everything but whatever it's fine science journalist John Vo Hanan.

"This is an ABC podcast Sir. Science Fiction Hey on the Tesha Mitchell. Welcome search this week. The pursuit of a Predator as a reporter. You you get all kinds of of little suggestions. Tips complaints yes. And you can't deal with them all. This one intrigued me. I had started to hear about similar complaints and sort of once. You hear enough of of them. The signal adds up. You think. Maybe there's a story here. What was I seeing? What what the clues that? That major smell a rash. I was a researcher myself. I was a faculty librarian at my university and I did a research probably starting five six years ago I I was always looking for publishing opportunities. I started getting letters and I started to receive these emails. Sort of saying extremely nice. Nice things to me that basically said call for Paper Journal Editors Wanting Me To submit my manuscript to their journal and they had lots of grammatical errors in addition to that one in the emails and then generally speaking editor. I don't say very nice things about you and they don't typically they don't write to you and ask you to submit a manuscript. Will you ever tempted to submit. No no I mean I'm a clinical epidemiology in some of these journals were literally from Soil Science Right. Why would somebody from soil science be asking me and saying Nice things about me? They wouldn't no me from anywhere he's smell. I did maybe several but that rash or several thousand rats via now well and truly on the loose predatory publishes and the predatory journals have become a mega industry global in reach ending ending destructive potential. In fact you're going to hear from someone who believes that this industry represents the biggest threat to science since the inquisition Shen the. US Federal Court recently ordered one of the biggest of these companies to pay up over fifty million US dollars. Only international headquartered voted in Hyderabad in India but also operating in the US claims to publish hundreds of scientific and medical journals. It was found to employ deceptive business practices essentially entrapping scientists to other publishing their journals or participate in conferences. So does the ruling site. bye-bye predatory publishes. Well let's see if Any of that money actually moves anywhere. It's not clear with a mix ex-group will cough up that fifty million dollars which is an estimate of how much the company made from customers over a six-year period or whether it will appeal. We sent a list list of questions to its representatives but yet to receive a reply but it is nice clear message to all the Sake Journal. Publishers of the world that they're being watched touched and there could be consequences. John Bohannon a science journalist and now director of science at an artificial intelligence startup in San Fran called primer. They didn't basically slipping under the radar and using American Canadian and European banks to move money millions of dollars of money from elicit gains. So this court ruling basically makes extremely inconvenient to do now. Joan was asked to present evidence in the case brought against the annex group by the US Federal Trade Commission because he'd had an unusually Hansa with the publisher so mix was one of hundreds of publishers offers. That I tested in sting operation. I wrote some computer code to generate thousands of very bad scientific papers. And what happened next these kind of legendary in science circles back in two thousand twelve John was reporting for the Journal. Science and the expression expression predatory journals wasn't in common news There was a guy named Jeffrey. You who was probably the only person around making a big stink about this and trying to actually Shine a light on it. It was very very bold effort. He had something called feels list or at least it became known as beal's list. My name is Jeffrey Bill. And I'm a retired academic librarian from the University of Colorado Denver professor. Beal beal's blacklist fame and a climb and Notaro He was the first to coin. The phrase predatory journals the Journal. Publishers hated being malysz because it stigmatizes them and meant that their income was decreased. Most of the predatory publishers are predatory not only in their publishing but in just the way they operate in general and they would use the heckler's actors veto. They would call the library director and complain about me and they would try to annoy people at my university as much as possible in order to manipulate those people at the university to make me stop the list so that their complaints would stop. I also received several threats of legal action including think it was in twenty twelve international threatened to sue me for one billion dollars one billion dollars. It was just a threat what I learned from it is that you can basically basically pay an attorney five hundred dollars in all right a threatening letter so they they did that but they never followed through with. It was never introduced in any court personal consequences consequences for Jeffrey of running. That black least were immense. And I'll come back to that. One estimate suggests that there are at least eight thousand predatory journals. This is just one publisher of many. But Jeffrey Bill provocatively calls it. The Evil Empire of Predatory Publishing I stand Dan by that statement and what they do is. They've really hurt a lot of people. You know the scholarly publishing system works on the honor system and people operate in good faith but oh mix international has has totally broken all that down. They use a lot of spamming to solicit article manuscripts from researchers they have journal titles that match the titles of respected journals. Usually one word off enough to confuse people that might be the respected journal in the `field they will at People's names to their editorial boards without the person's permission people from top universities top researchers in the field and they'll use their identity to promote the journal and when the person finds out about it and ask them to remove their name. They don't remove it they just leave it there because they're operating operating from foreign country. There's really nothing you can do about it and especially prey on young researchers in emerging researchers researchers who don't speak English as their first language it's not just scientists from developing countries that are targeted although that easing acknowledged problem clinical epidemiologist. David Mo- assays the crosses reaches into some of America's most delayed institutions including Harvard in an analysis that we did where we looked at a close to two thousand thousand articles published in Predator journals. We found that actually the most frequent corresponding authors were from what we would call first. World countries countries would lots of money and lots of resources that is troubling very very troubling because it suggests that at these institutions authors may not Be Aware of predatory journals and we need to obviously ramp up some educational activities. People think that they're sending the manuscript to a legitimate respected journal. When it's really just a phony dough mix international journal and then they quickly accept the paper without any peer review and then send them an invoice and at that point the authors realized that something is wrong because There was really no peer reviewed done yet. The papers accepted and they have this two thousand dollars invoice that comes through email and the olmecs demanding payment. Most of them asked to withdraw the paper when they realized that they've been duped. But then oh mix says has you can't withdraw your paper unless you pay US withdrawal fee. An often than olmecs will publish the article quickly and one of their journals and then and they can't submit it anywhere else. Because that would be duplicate submission it would be publishing the same article twice. which is something not supposed to do that? Nothing about predatory regionals. He's what he's supposed to happening science as John Bowen discovered when he sent them a taste. Yes yeah so I just wanted some data. It's frustrating to have such an enticing story of you know bad actors that Potentially Ricky and millions of ill gotten dollars dollars and not get some data to find out if it's true so we appear stay in molecular biology from Oxford oppy slave. He plotted an experiment which was pretty straightforward. And the idea in a nutshell is if I submit a really and I mean truly bad scientific paper to your journal title and you accept it with no sign of any peer review and you ask me for money then you're you're a fake journal publisher. Yeah John Wanted to test how easy it was to get published in a predatory journal it can usually take many months years even to get a pipe into a reputable scientific journal. And even then it's not a given. That's partly because of what's called Peer Review essential to the scientific process. So you do an experiment. You brought it up reporting your results. Submitted to a journal and then it gets pulled to shreds.

"The confusion between the open active publishing movement and predatory journals eased perhaps for another edition of the show it controversial you both charge authors to publish their pipers. Instead of plugging raiders subscribe with phase. So the open access document for that. Is that opened up on knowledge like never before afraid that up from behind traditional general pie walls but come believe the orthopedic model creates an inherent conflict of interest and that prey traded tree publishes of taking advantage of that in order to build prophet and the taking advantage of gone to who are desperate to get published in the publish. This you'll perish culture at dying. Some of them are taking up the offer because they're being tricked by the predatory publishers. And that's why I use the term predatory because they're preying on them. They're they're preying on their weaknesses that people need to get published so people are earning degrees. People are getting promotions at universities. People people are earning tenure. In some cases based on a publications in low quality fake predatory journals that don't conduct any peer review and have almost no settling at all they accept everything and we've also learned that Pharmaceutical companies are publishing their research to justify the the efficacy of their new medicines are using predatory journals to do that as well. What do you think the K.? Drive is of the predatory journal Sane has been. It's easy easy money. Jeffrey Built Blackley to all of predatory journals grew in influence as did his reputation. Publish publishes the now the push back angrily at him at criteria for inclusion on the lease at Lone ranger approach at he denora antagonism them of open active publishing some went straight to he'd universities Ladyship to attack your credibility and he became a kind of hybrid of hero in. I'm Tara how did he university respond for the most part for the first few years they were supportive of me and the legal office did help me. Could I have some tricky situations you know that. I had gotten in because of the threats from the publishers but towards the end I think they grew weary of me A.. And the support decreased. Dav receive pressure to shut Daniel blog from your university. I received the pressure but it wasn't pressure to shut shut down the blog. Things became increasingly uncomfortable towards the end before I retired I retired a year ago. Did it become uncomfortable. The university he did that some things I used to have an office and they took me out of an office and put me into a cubicle. They hired a new person to work in the library. He had two years of library experience and they made him be my supervisor. And you know part of Predatory publishing there's a broader context to it. There's a social movement behind open access publishing. A lot of people want to kill off the traditional publishers and had them all replaced with open access journals so that everybody throughout the world connects us all published research and it's a very Left wing social movement. And so the person that came in as my supervisor was among among those people and so we had strikingly kingly different ideologies about scholarly publishing. So that was way a pressured. Me Why did you. Shutdown bills leaked in in two thousand seventeen taint it has reincarnated with anonymous editors income since to protect themselves from what you went through. But why did you decide to shut it down. Well in January array of that year. I learned that the university was working with one of the publishers on my list and the results of that was that the university initiated a research. I misconduct investigation against me and I knew I hadn't engaged any research. Misconduct myself because research misconduct means means of falsification fabrication or plagiarism. By definition and I knew I hadn't done any of that yet they started this case against me and I felt very stigmatized passed by it and that kind of sealed it for me with the university. I you know take another action against me and now here was something major research misconduct case. And that's why I decided to stop the list. What was the outcome of that case the outcome in July of twenty seventeen was snow? Research misconduct found at that. Make you feel it made me feel horrible. I felt like my own university that I worked at for seventeen years. I was turning against me and I felt stigmatized and I felt like I really can continue the work. And that's why I shut down the blog and the lists you you think that builds leaked with attributes of that action. Sure it was a publisher that they worked with was a big one and the predatory Tori publishers. The ones that are doing really well are rich. They have lots and lots of money. They can hire lawyers to go after people and they can organiz well. And there are several very large very successful predatory publishers out there and and they have a lot of power and they we'll go after anybody who threatens their income publisher the publisher was frontiers. So you just ask them to be predatory publisher. Yeah Yeah and I had lots of evidence from stuff that they had published. They published an article about Chem trails in the Sky Cam conspiracy theory yeah. They published an article about that which they quickly retracted. After I wrote a blog post about it. They they published an article saying that. HIV doesn't cause AIDS. So I had lots of lots of solid evidence that they weren't really conducting Valla Peer Review Diet. It's not necessarily making them a predatory publish plenty of crap lanes up in good journals But it gets gets retracted and publishing junk. Science is one of the criteria that I use to evaluate publishers if you submit in an article to a publisher thinking it's good publisher when they're publishing crap science poor science that is a type of predation against on researchers. They don't want to be associated shared with junk science. And for the University of Colorado Dame Vera. Where Jeffrey held a tenured faculty position would not comment on any research? Misconduct misconduct investigation but told not friction that the university quote defended and supported perfect to build academic freedom to do predatory publishing part of scholarship..

Who was doing peer review of this paper you just look at the numbers representing this charts and they just make no sense at all? Just don't make any sense and the design if the experiment that was fatally flawed too. I mean these are the kind of mistakes that high school stupid make like these. This isn't even college mistakes. This is just like the biggest most most embarrassing scientific mistake imagine. This isn't subtle stuff and then John Wind even I just wanted to like bring it to the next level so at the into the paper I have the authors say that you know.

Next is incredible incredible. Any reasonable publisher should have looked at that paper and said not in no way on that publishing this a lot of journals. Dd Yes it gives us the very murray doc stats well. The darkest of dark stats is that sixty percent of the publishers accepted. My article did any any of those sixty percent off to you to make any kind of amendments almost never when they did it it involved. Formatting trivial changes often they would asked me to add citations two papers that they'd published which is also really not a good practice but now they almost never did any substantial reviews and even in the Buick that DDP to conduct some kind of Conduct Peer Review John Piper with open accepted. Anyway I even after a damning review. What more to mainstream todd and the publishing L. V. and Daij court out not much to their embarrassment? Yeah it was grim. That was not a great day for Scientific Publishing and so over. The course of that experiment took months to finish. I just sort of got more and more pessimistic about the publishing world. It really changed my view of the whole industry that I was part of some people who a had been caught up in the sting did contact me afterwards effect. We got at least one angry letter to the editor from one of these journals. Yeah that got caught with its pants down but I don't have that much sympathy for them because they had the one job. You know if you're the editor of journal all you gotTa do is withhold the integrity of the journal and clearly weren't doing that as of the more reputable journals a betrayal of trust and. I wonder what you'll respond CANETTI's Oh yeah. Yeah absolutely everyone craft all over the whole thing. How else would they have reacted? It was basically like taking the giant dump on their entire world. A couple of editors lost their jobs but considering that they had jobs that a fake journal.

Scott team fact all indications that it has grown Mac. Delay going strong. If you carried out the sting operation again. What do you think? Oh I think the picture would probably be worse if I were to do it again. Though I'll tell you what I would do is I would Send a sample papers to the the publishers. Who have the more traditional model as well it? It's kind of amazed me that this whole problem that I uncovered was dismissed by many for the simple fact that I hadn't also submitted fake papers to different kinds of journals at so they felt like they were being unfairly picked picked on the people in the Nexus Publishing Movement and Compassionate Movement. Did they think that you had unfairly. Targeted them in particular. Oh yeah absolutely they drag me through the mud. It was really unpleasant claiming that I'm Michelle's for the traditional scientific publishing world which is hilarious if if you've known me at all it's really quite the opposite. I'm quite an advocate for open access everything but whatever it's fine God's gentlest John Bohannon.

We have a fake breasts. We have a phony press. We have freedom of the press in this country. We have a phony. I don't even use fake anymore. I call the fake news now corruptors because fake isn't tough enough. They have become. The media has become totally only unhinged. These are bad people. They're sick people and their corrupt that crazy New York Times one of the worst newspapers. What are the most dishonest newspapers in the history history alone totally phoning corrupt media in this country and it surely is the enemy of the people? Thank you very much. Thank you In September Salzburger delivered a speech at Brown University about how trump's combative rhetoric had in bold and repressive regimes. Just as souls Burger had warned the president that it might around the globe a relentless campaign is targeting adding journalists because of the fundamental role. They play in ensuring a free and informed society. In that speech souls Pirker shared the previously untold story of a phone call that the Times received from a US government official two years earlier warning of the imminent arrest of a Times reporter order in Egypt. Aimed Declan Walsh though. The news was alarming. The call was actually fairly standard. Over the years we've received countless such warnings from American diplomats laments military leaders and national security officials. But this particular call took a surprising and distressing turn. We learned that the official was passing along this warning without the knowledge or permission of the trump administration rather than try to stop the Egyptian government or assist the reporter the official believe the trump administration intended to sit on the information and let the arrest be carried out the official feared punishment for for even alerting us to the danger unable to count on our own government to prevent the arrest or to help free declan if you were imprisoned and return to his native country Ireland for help within an hour for Irish diplomats had traveled to declins house and safely escorted him to the airport report before a forces could detain him and we hate to imagine what could have happened. Had that brave official not risk their career to alert us the threat eighteen months later another of our reporters David Kirkpatrick arrived in Egypt was detained and deported in apparent retaliation for exposing information. That was embarrassing to the Egyptian government when we protested the move a senior official at the US embassy in in Cairo openly voice the cynical worldview behind the trump administration's tolerance for such crackdowns. What did you expect would happen to him? He said his reporting made the government.

That was a that was essentially. I had no money. Invested is sentences are growing shorter. Did you ever talk to him about wikileaks. Because that seemed to be what was never had a conversation with him though I did okay and did you ever tell him. Did you ever tell him to or other people to get in touch with him. And it's clear. He's been cautious at one point. He was visibly blee uncomfortable enough that Sarah Sanders sort of muttered under her breath next topic. His job is from an economic. You know I get a kick out of these people said Oh Rich Arab state at his hotel. And then as we've seen in previous interviews with President trump. There are a lot of interesting tangents that he'll take but I lost massive amounts of money during this. This is not for money. One of the more striking was him talking about. How everyone assumes he's making so much money and benefiting so much from being president but that actually this is one of the great losers of all time I you know? Fortunately I don't need money any assuming. The office had come at a significant financial cost and I think used some language like it's the biggest loser being president. That's right but lose.

"It's Friday in February. I O for the purposes of this interview. How would you like me to refer to you like in terms of your actual name but you WanNa be a G G G okay? Good did you tell me the story of what happened this past summer. Well I I had Recently been named publisher of the times and I was coming back from dinner one day and I got a email from Sarah Chris Sanders not someone had emailed me before and she asked if I could come to the White House later that week for a private off the record meeting with the president are journalists analysts are typically extremely cautious about giving off the record meetings to prominent newsmakers. But it's part of the responsibility that comes comes with being publisher to be willing to sit down across from folks who are regularly receiving coverage particularly regularly receiving tough coverage in here. If they have vigny concerns so I felt that I should accept meeting face to face with the president. I felt it was really important to raise raise some of my concerns about his increasingly strong anti press rhetoric. I also felt pretty strongly that I should bring a journalist along as well so I Brought James Bennett. My colleague who oversees the Opinion Department including the editorial page and we headed down to Washington and what happen open. James asked most of the questions as journalists in the room and then at some point I sensed a natural break in the conversation and I brought what up what I had been wanting to share with him. I said to the president. I'm increasingly alarmed by your anti press rhetoric. You know phrases like fake news. I find very troubling but I'm deeply concerned about the implication of frizzes like enemy. The people and I believe that this language is not just divisive. It's dangerous and this is all off the record so this is just a message that very much wanted to deliver to the president directly. That's right and you know it was a civil meeting. He did hear me out and at the end of the conversation after we had stood up. been were preparing to leave. He thanked us again for coming in. Turn to me pointed to his head and said you've given me a lot to think about and I really will think about it so you you leave the White House and what happens so largely nothing. I go back to work. He goes back to work and that a week. Maybe ten ten days later I'm at home. It was Sunday morning. Think I had was either changing a diaper. Just finished changing a diaper and I get a call that informs me that the president has just tweeted about our meeting some breaking news now as the New York Times goes to Washington. President Trump tweeted just a little while ago that he met with Eiji Salzburger the relatively new publisher of the New York Times at the White House. Recently tweeting vis today quote had a very good and interesting meeting at the White House with Ag Sulzberger Publisher of The New York Times. President trump continuing quote spent much time talking talking about the vast amounts of fake news being put out by the media and how that fake news has morphed into the phrase enemy of the people sad and is that your understanding of what happened in the room. No it was a gross mischaracterization of of our conversation. I mean certainly. We've had a meeting at the White House. Leave it to him to decide whether it's good and interesting. And we talked about his use of phrases like fake news and enemy of the people people but it was not a conversation which I was agreeing with those characterizations in the least so. What exactly did you do? So I grabbed my my laptop and typed out a very brief account of what actually transpired in the meeting. We issue our statement which I thought spoke look for itself and the new cycle moved on to other things and I moved on to other things and then six months later this week. I get another email from Sarah. Huckabee could be sanders. This time asking me to join the president for a private dinner at the White House And what are you thinking when you you get that invitation. I'm thinking that I can't possibly accept. This invitation. Went because I'm already reluctant about allowing people to go off the record but the notion that I would do that with someone who had so clearly violated the terms that he had requested. And that I had agreed to you a second time just felt like a non-starter to me. So you're prepared. It sounds to say no and to walk away from this opportunity. I did say no I wrote an email back which I thought was perfectly polite but also very direct saying that given what had transpired the last time we had such a meeting that I'd be unable to accept a private dinner with the president but I also added and I thought it was probably a long shot that the president isn't was willing to meet on the record with several of our journalists for an interview that I'd be happy to join and what was the response to my surprised surprised the next day they said yes. So this morning Maggie Haberman and I took the train down in DC where we met our colleague League Peter Baker and prepared for the first significant on the record interview. We've done with the president over here. And how are you thinking about this interview have you. Because you're the publisher of the Times you're not a reporter but you are going to the White House with two of the Times Star White House reporters. What exactly is this meeting in your mind? Well that's exactly right. My role in that room is very different than Maggie and Peter's Zo. Do you know when we sat down to plan it out I. I made very clear that I would leave the reporting part of the meeting entirely to them but I also also said that there were a few things that I wanted to convey to the president following up on our previous meeting essentially some unfinished business. That's tripe.
