Texas' Near-Total Abortion Ban Takes Effect
"Cambridge before roe v wade and so i know what it was like when women didn't have this choice we couldn't control our own bodies our own destinies here. We are fifty years later fighting the same battle again. It's incredible to think that we would be going backwards. It's the women of limited means women of color women in rural parts of texas who do not have access. This is just devastating. Big no options whatsoever the texas law virtually banning abortion that went into effect today could have an impact on women far outside that state opponents were banking on the supreme court stepping in and stopping the measure from taking effect. But that didn't happen as political sums it up the court's decision to not act on an emergency petition from texas abortion. Clinics comes as the justices. Prepare to more. Broadly reconsider the right to an abortion. It established almost fifty years ago. Back with us tonight. Eugene robinson pulitzer prize winning columnist for the washington. Post and susan dell persio of veteran political strategist boast are msnbc analysts. Thanks to both of you for being with us susan. Let's start with you. There are a lot of people who fully know that. Republicans at a state level have been attempting things that are either faints or real attempts to to place restrictions on abortion for some years now but this has surprised a lot of the fact that something that feels very much like a total ban on abortion could actually get past the supreme court. Absolutely i ate it. Is it's sending shockwaves especially to a lot of the republicans who may instead like yes. I'm pro-life but you know roe v. wade's the lay the law of the land and they also believed in Exceptions to incest rape which this law does not have this is the harshest law that i think republicans could ever see coming and at this point i think even some republicans are going to have a hard time getting behind it. Come twenty twenty two
"pulitzer" Discussed on The Tony Kornheiser Show
"Insulted in publicly. And now the sixers left with nothing and then get no value for sevens. And i can talk about all of those things but i wanna talk about something. That happened where i live at about three in the morning. And for those of you who do not live in washington dc. I concede that all weather is local. This i mean you live where you live you get the weather you have but at about three in the morning last night. I was awakened by two things one an enormous amount of lightning thunder but an enormous amount of lightning and rain and to that male instinct. That says you have to protect the house. And michael knows well about that instinct because he was awaken last night by the same two things. You've forty-five we had lightning. I don't wanna say the lightning ever. Maybe once or twice. I saw it so clear that i thought it was within a half a mile of me but most of the time it was just that constant lighting up the sky from distance and the thunder and rain and pouring down rain kept me up from three to five. What happened with you i. It was two forty five and it was the thunder that woke up little henry. The boys are on the front side of house so he starts crying bring him into bed and then the walkman he gets up as well so it's the four of us huddled under our sheets as we're as we start to feel our house shape so then i i was sure powered. Go off and it didn't get out of the bed. And i go downstairs and we have a sort of a a driveway walkout and i'm standing there watching the entire street light up and watching sheets of rain. This is one of those once a year now. I think it's important to remember. We have our. We have our safety. We have our health. There are other issues going on with floodwater in this country or in other more important but this again new orleans. This is what was happening to us last night. Yeah it was really something. There's nothing that that really freaks you out like weather whether in the middle of the night where you go. Whoa what is going to happen. Next is going to be a tornado or trees going to start to go down. I am very very lucky. In this regard my dog you hear my dog bark all the time. Ninety percent of dogs are terrified thunder and lightning and they whimper and they wine and they crawl under chairs and try to crawl under beds. Chessy doesn't seem to be affected by lightening and doesn't hide in the shower. No no doesn't do that so very very lucky about that. You guys are up. In the new york metropolitan area are you.

Us open are they gonna play the us open today or are they going to try to play the us. Open nigel. well yeah. I mean we've all been sort of looking at this storm as it makes. Its way up to us some rain out right now. I think it's supposed to rain pretty steady throughout the day and into the night. I hopefully let off tomorrow. They've got the roofs at authorized stadium and louis armstrong. They can close them. Yes yes so. They'll just start a funnel matches into their today's the big day. The doubles begins today.

It's against the spirit of fair-play certainly andy. Murray was was outraged by this and should have been playing two surgeries. And he's like if you cool me down even a little bit in the middle of a match. It's very difficult to sort of stay loose and be able to continue to play if you go to the bathroom that much in your chosen profession. You ought to get another profession or a doctor's help come on. I mean cincinnati. He did this five separate times. Averaging seven minutes a shot certainly enough time to text his coach to find out what he was doing. I would be very interested in if you would look back on all the time. Cincy pas has taken a stroll to the bathroom. What was his record. After he came back how did he do in that next set after he came back and that would also indicate to me that maybe he was receiving information while he was in there. You can understand why i would feel this way. Sure no. it's entirely possible but again was a match with underneath kerber in an woman named his trump's go and they both went to the bathroom at the same time sometimes.

"pulitzer" Discussed on Slate's Working
"Action to my Pantheon of great artists whose every utterance I know want to hear I loved your exchange about how a strange loop was self reverential rather than autobiographical and it was fascinating to hear him talk about the challenge distancing himself from lived experiences when writing about them I'm sure that will be something that will stick with me for a long time but it's interesting because right. What you know is the classic piece of writing advice but a play or a short story they can't. Just, be diary entries, right? No, they absolutely cannot and I actually think right. What you know that piece of advice can often be quite harmful of to literally one thing that Michael discovered doing the show which I think is really important is that it's very difficult to write a work of art as opposed to say a diary entry whatever it's very hard to create that while you are actually going through the thing because you need to have some outside perspective Michael Show is not a memoir, but you know all memoirs actually take place in two. Time schemes there's the time scheme of you experiencing it and the time scheme of you writing about it even if you never dramatize that second one and I think that's really important. So I think to me I always think about it as maybe this because I'm a nonfiction writer, but you should write what you want to investigate or what you WanNa learn about or what you're burning questions about, and that can be something that happened in your life but it doesn't have to be something that happened in your life and I think what makes a Strange loop. Great. Isn't that it's based on Michael's lifers autobiographical whatever that's wonderful. But what makes it great is the ferocity with which he is willing to interrogate his life and the world and the strains looping structure that he finds four that interrogation. Amazing. I'm always in awe of musical theater in new. York. At least the performers are the best thing is there are the best actress there are the best dancers there are. But this interview really highlighted the degree of difficulty that Michael to con with a strange loop writing the book, the lyrics, the music. Impart because it's hard for one individual who created all of those elements to then focus exclusively on a problem with the lyrics are problem with story or whatever it is. So is really fascinating to hear about the contributions that collaborators like the director or the set designer made to the final work. If indeed, the play as it was performed at playwrights, horizons can be considered the final word right I mean. That's one of the weird things about theater. Right? There is no final work. So long as it will be produced again, it's it's not finished on some level even if the text actually is. Nearly all art has collaboration somewhere in its creation we often ignore it or we don't acknowledge it. It is very difficult in telling the story of an artist and fifteen hundred words in an essay to also include everyone they collaborated with or whatever but in theater the presence of collaborators and their effect on the work in our awareness about that is extraordinarily heightened and so in this case, there's all sorts of important aspects about a strange loop that. Came about purely as a result of collaboration. One of the most significant is that all of the thoughts are plagued by black queer performers. If you've seen the show, you know that's essential to what the show is doing the and so when when Michael said in the interview wasn't always going to be that that was actually the directors idea I mean I was completely shocked because it just seems like naturally, of course, that's what the show should be. I'm very glad also you asked him how the Pulitzer I mean I think I've just mentioned Pulitzer Prize winning he won the Pulitzer Pulitzer pull it suppose I mean I've I've mentioned about ten times just in the course of our conversation and how that has changed his working life I'm very glad you asked him about that. He gave a bracingly honest answer. D. You think that theater is maybe just. Even for the arts in general particularly awards obsessed. In a word. Yes. A lot more words I guess I would say this. Theaters and extremely difficult industry I don't think it's as cutthroat as it's often portrayed think people are pretty supportive and a lot of ways but it's a very difficult industry because there are vastly more numbers of talented people than there are jobs for those people and the incredible disparity between those two things just has a lot of effects in every area of the industry and then. On top of that, there's been a big drive over the last ten to fifteen years to expand the number of new plays and premieres that are produced on America's stages, and so that means there's a lot more people in the mix and it increases the power of things like awards because you have to be able to differentiate whatever show you're offering. Right. So the next show that. Michael has it will say the new musical from the Pulitzer Prize winning writer of a strange loop in its description somewhere, and that's pretty likely to get someone to buy a ticket I mean I'm more likely to buy the ticket right but at the same time, one of the reasons why I really wanted to talk to Michael about it is you know winning something like the Pulitzer. is a real life changing event. It doesn't mean that he's set for life financially, but it does open new opportunities and it means that people pay attention to him in a very different way and like all life changing events that can be difficult to manage and it has upsides and downsides, and so it was very curious about what it was like to experience that in real time..

"Number one, two, three zero six in the omnibus fusion, we hope you're interested in the fashion vagaries and peccadilloes of the distant past. Look, if you're not, you're listening to the wrong program, although I have to note do you have not really done very many fashion shows. Let's not have an fault. You've seen how I dress. Yeah, you could do a fashion show on, like how many gap t shirts, you can be your wife can buy. Notice. They're all the same color clothing, clothing episode VI. That's a great question. Hey, honey. Did these Costco genes come with belt? And that's exactly what my entry has Kirkland industries. Untuckit or what's the store you wear the tux shirts on? That is a thing. Yeah. You're gonna do tuck it. And I will do untuckit. That's our fashion. We allows his right there. Well, we presume, you have a different number of limbs than us, perhaps some kind of shape changing ability, though, that would come in handy. If you have kind of the modern mystique of the X men thing, and you can fit into human bipedal, fashions may be of interest to you. All you need to do is just put on as many Lilly Pulitzer dresses, as you have appendages. That's exactly right. One for every tentacle. And if there's something you, you use some kind of some kind of mucus, it's the perfect dress, apparently for a splash of this spot of that, no one's gonna be the wiser soaks right up.

It's an awful thing is terrible with the exception of the Facebook future Ling's group, where we've seen a lot of photos of mail trucks, and Christian Science reading rooms, but not so much of any of the fashion episodes. I think there was some hooters shirts recently. But let's see let's see your Venezeula Pulitzer's everyone. Yeah. Let's do. I mean you know, if you have any vintage Lilly Pulitzer's that you want to send us you could mail them to us. You can just put them in the mail. I don't know why they probably not fit us. John apparently, has a very specific kind of early sixties Mon in mind to do that. He's shopping fort maybe she could wear them all. I'll be that. Terrible guy who gets a new girlfriend is like, hey, try this on. Hundred Jimmy Stewart hundred ago. You can send those to onto this project at PO box five seven four four Arlington Washington, nine one five five or if you wanna keep them for yourself. That's selfish Picadilly send us a photo of them, which you could do to the end of this project at gmaiLcom listeners from our vantage points in your distant past when this podcast could do multiple entries on the clothes that I find interesting end. No one would mount, a major complaint. No advertisers would stop advertising. Nobody would say, John isn't this kind of thin conceit, even just ebaying stuff from mid century America, even my co-host would let it go by three or four times before he started to, to raise them suspicions? These tabs are just open on your computer all the time. These omnibus topics isn't this show idea. This is just thrifty. We have no idea how long this conceit will survive.

"Was that every Lilly Pulitzer pattern actually had the word lily written in it somewhere camouflaged, and the patterns are extremely busy. So you, you could search one for a while before you actually found the Lilly and coated in that. So it's kind of like a where's WALDO or analysis felt yeah? Caricature. You gonna. Where's lily is a fun? Little game to play on your own sundress. But at ten years later, a company by the name of sugar town worldwide who it was a company owned by women who had grown up wearing lily's as they said and their mothers had grown up wearing lilies. And they couldn't they couldn't bear that the brand was defunct and went to Lillian offered to buy the brand and resuscitate resurrected. And so sure town bought the lily brand, and lily signed on as a consultant and PR. Proved the fabrics and was now she's sort of matronly. And really, it's exciting to her that the brand has revived other generation is going to see her designs. And she has she has something to do, I guess, on the in after noons go down in approved some Lilly Pulitzer. Some new fabrics. But it's just like when Martha Stewart starts to put stuff in K marts, and what happens to the brand will. In fact, that, that very thing, the, the company expanded they had they started opening Lewis Pulitzer shops in various places. The Lilly Pulitzer garments started to become available in Nordstrom and Saks and Neiman markets. They weren't. They were still like upmarket clothes and expensive like make no mistake that these frocks were affordable. They were pricey. And that's what made them aspirated you know, they were fun and looked like easy, and, and neat, and you could wear them without underwear or shoes. But but they also you had. To the couple hundred. Yeah. You to be a rich lady. So eventually sugar town got bought by Oxford industries as in all American stories. The capitalist ladder started to eventually Mead. Yeah. And takes over Oxford, owns Tommy Bahama and, you know, is a major something called southern tide which I can only imagine his, his similar preppy sort of southern preppy style of clothes. It's like white power, just Washington White power laundry. Use it on your sheets, even if they have eyeholes Kenneth cold dockers. I mean, there are a lot, the these guys are all like mobbed up, but at a certain point, just in recent years in two thousand fifteen Lilly Pulitzer announced a collaboration with target and targets really famous for this for collaborating with a brand that's like kind of fancy or an actual designer actual designer who may. Then makes a thing for target like a special limited edition thing, a less good version of their thing. It's kind of a Methodist off Ely. That everybody's making it was an enormous hit. They sold out of every, you know, every target everywhere instant sell out, and all of the, you know, all the vanderbilts and Rockefellers and Whitney's all the fourth generation Whitney daughters were all furious that, that Lilley had. But now the Poor's could wear lilies. Yeah. Lilia d- screwed up. They're screwed up the, the fancy nece with target collaboration. But Lilly Pulitzer and Pulitzer Lilly Pulitzer, the Pulitzer nape Ulitsa Luke pulsar garments on EBay. They go for extrordinary prices like the vintage ones the vintage ones and even recent ones, I mean, you can get sort of the little mass-market mass made ones for fifty bucks or so. But if you're looking for. For vintage let me just put this in here. This show is mostly you looking for vintage trapper keepers and sundresses and stuff that you that you wanna price like we just have to turn on a Mike while you goof around on EBay. This is now your show, so yeah, I mean you're looking at one hundred and fifty two hundred fifty dollars for, for Lilly Pulitzer designs from the nineteen seventies, I think if.

"By nineteen fifty nine Louis. Hewlett's are got out of the orange juice selling business entirely and incorporated, her company as Lilly Pulitzer Inc. I assume she was never sowing the stuff herself. She all she was. Oh, he was the seamstress and, and, and one of the things that made her business explode in popularity was that her old classmate and chum Jacqueline Bouvier now Jacqueline Bouvier. Kennedy was photographed wearing one of lily's creations, which lily later claimed was made from a set of curtains like kitchen curtains that she took down and took some scissors to and made into a cute little frocks. He's really tapping into that kind of inventive Scarlett. O'hara marie-yvonne trap idea of the woman who can today's modern smart woman who can produce a smart outfit out of anything. Well, this may be what she learned at miss Porter's school, right? I mean curtain tailoring one she was learning. A she was learning pharmacy and agriculture and how to take a take a pair of sheers to the curtains and make a dress for Jacqueline Kennedy. But that's a good. That's a real good origin story, though, to have that in your arsenal like today, internet companies famously make stuff like that up and will lie and say that they're just wanted to sell his Pez dispensers. So he invented EBay, just so there's a one line hook that might make the Wall Street Journal. Well, this was I mean, this picture of Jackie Kennedy in this bolt floral kitchen curtain, dress. And now underwear possibly and almost certainly no underwear. You know, if we're talking about talking about my horrid story. You're just imagining. Jackie Kennedy with no underwear before I imagined Jack be with no underwear. I was just a normal farm. And then I woke up the next day, and I was a fashion designer Italy. This dress became the must have item of this sort of period. If you were a socialite in particular the Lilly Pulitzer was of your class, and of your time and style..

It was both a like a are you saying it treads, both sides, boy, here we go. Yes, it treads both sides. No. It's like a friends. It was like a like a hotbed of early feminist thought, but also was a place for socialites to get a little bit of polish like how much homework and stuff like that demeaning kind of stuff like that you think there is in these places. Well, it's not like any of these women were ever going to do their own cooking. I guess I mean Tricia Nixon went to Finch college. So did Kathleen Cavin dish, the president Kennedy's sister? I kind of want my kids to be socialized. I've decided, I'm going to send them to Isabella Rossellini went there, grace slick went there. Wow. Imagine if you're there at the same time with Avella Russell lady, grace slick that would be that'd be a good time to sneak into a woman's college and see if they're having televised. But so lily eloped after graduating, she's a rebel, she's a rebel, and she eloped with Herbert Pulitzer. Pu poulet serve Pulitzer Pulitzer. I think it's like cool. It sir say the opposite of push Pulitzer. She eloped with Herbert Pulitzer the grandson of the great Pulitzer prize founding Pulitzer newspaperman Joseph Joseph Pulitzer grazing. Magnetic competitor of William Randolph Hearst, and again, a philanthropist in his own right later in politics. He was he was in the house. That's right. The two of them, eloped and went to Florida where in the style of the sort of nineteen fifties socialites who have decamped to sunnier climes. They opened a little orange juice stand at the on the side of the road by their weight. Really will? They bought some orange groves. And of course, they don't have to work. Really? Yeah. That seems a little ostentatious too, but, you know, it was a phone poverty, having a fruit stand. It was pretty it was fun times. You know, like you can imagine being a young married. Couple have a lot of money, which did we do? Let's buy on orange. Grove. It's funny how the colder climes of America, like just endless tracks of orange tree seemed like such a they're always on posters, and Florida. It's it's maybe it's leftover from the dust bowl. It's idea that all you want is fruit trees, as far as the icons oranges. Just grow. You can just. Kick them and delicious grow out of the ground us.

"Number one, two, three. Oh, six Lilly Pulitzer. Do you think that the first lady can play a role in influencing taste in this country? I suppose she can. People seem so interested in whatever the first family likes that's where I think when can lead when doesn't know when leads in the right direction. When hopes when does pellets are you say? Used to say Pulitzer Pulitzer prize. That's right. And I've been corrected. It's the Pulitzer family has written request. Would you not say Pulitzer prize? Would you say Pulitzer prize? Think you're supposed to say Pulitzer prize Pulitzer. I guess does that seem wrong to you. Well, yeah, I mean, I say Pulitzer prize. I assume that you can put a big like Pulitzer. I really dig into it, I think you probably would have won by now if not for. So if you look it up in the dictionary, they will say it's pronounced Joseph Pulitzer. And they'll say that's the families permeation, but then they will allow also Pulitzer. Like if you want to say it the way the family didn't say it is this, this is another one of those Moog mode things like which one voice, which one, do you want to be the jerk or the correct one, but I think I wanna Pulitzer prize. And I suppose I suppose it's all right. You can it sounds kind of old time. Yeah. Right. New like a like a mid Atlantic accent. Hi, wanna put surprise. Are you mad that you haven't won a Pulitzer prize? I always wanted to I have to I'm, I'm curious, but I have not done anything worthy. There's so many other gory surprise. Have you done any editorial cartooning there's a Pulitzer for that? I mean I haven't like a shown it to anyone, but I do I do do it on your Picchi folder.

How really I believe? So four what there's a Pulitzer for music. Why am I not one one of those? Yeah, I really don't wanna put salt in your wounds. The funny thing is that comes with a prize of fifteen thousand dollars recently, raised from ten, which is kind of, you know, it's a little chicken. Nice for Eli to get a ten thousand thirteen thousand dollar check. But it's kind of funny when you think about Kendrick.

And the way they see reality and the way they see our history, the book includes a side by side translation of every poem in Spanish. The other poem we'd love you to read from his depopulation blues, which talks about the broader obligations. We have people around the world even if there happened to be of a different nationality country. Oh, absolutely. But also many people don't realize this, but we actually had a depopulation order that was concocted by Kissinger and Nixon. And so we are actually people color, especially in danger of being depopulated here in this country as well as in other countries. And I know it feels really shocking, but they can research this evil can be brilliant though. Speaking of depopulation. Of people. It will find a way we are not fools completely to be seduced by it. For Nixon Carter Reagan, perhaps all the others knew we were counting on them to be as human as we are, but why eight hundred thousand Rwandans died while we watched a televised presidential sex scandal might have told us something that politicians who smiled at us and kissed our babies, blue eyes shining with triumph. Well, knew we were falling into our graves kicked by them as they counted our votes.

First rapper to win a Pulitzer prize ever this past year, and I want to play for you something from one of his songs and a video that echoes your work. Take a look. Chips like. Humming. If God got us, we're going to be all right. Have you have you heard him quote you before the now? You've never seen that now and he's big. He's not Alice Walker big, but he's big, I'm happy for him. What do you think about the way he's using your work? All's my life I had to fight well, I think he's understanding that is the truth of it, especially for poor people and for people who call her in this country, we've had to fight all of our lives and it's a good thing that we can talk to each other across generations prizes are a funny thing. I don't imagine you focus on them, but there are people who criticize the Nobel Pulitzer for handing them out to musicians. Do you think it should only go to traditional novelists and poets or musicians as well? I, I'm not crazy about prizes. No, so whoever wants them should have them and people who could do without them should do without them. Did it change your status because there's your work that stands on its own, and then there's the. Reach of your work. And so I wonder whether the prize is in the prestige that you've amassed did make a difference in the reach. I mean, we talk about the color purple to think that there was too talented people who happen to be black women, Oprah and Whoopi who'd never been cast in a film before they adapted your film. Does that part of it matter to you? That did. That was very good. And I was very happy about that. But I'm just saying that the real joy comes from doing the work in hasn't really come from the prize. That's something I think that's inspiring about you. And it comes through very much sitting across the table from you. It is obvious to observe, but I will observe it that that's something that you and the president do not have in common. He tends to brag a lot, but he does claim to be smart and educated. This is the only quoting of the president we're going to do, but I'll play you one clip of President Trump..

Words, what does it tell you that it's important to him to be perceived as so smart. It tells me that he knows he probably is not, and he has an inferiority complex and that's very sad, but it's even sadder that we elected him to lead. We definitely need a very different kind of leader. And in fact, we actually need to lead ourselves and until we do, we probably won't get very far. You're saying fury already. I mean, there's a feeling of inferiority or lack of self. Affirmation love. Does that in your view, make people more more dangerous when they come in contact with power money? Yes, because there's always in the, there's always the feeling of need to measure up, you know? And I mean, even see that between him and Barack Obama, I think n. b. there was just so blatant that Donald Trump envied Iraq Obama his even though he started out with much more than Barack, oh, of course. That's part of the problem that he had everything in Barack as a black man was supposed to have nothing and said, look, what happened is all of the things that this. Isn't isn't in this very hard to take. But the answer is not to make us all suffer is to go and improve yourself.

"Have to admit because years ago more than three decades ago i started in the news business and i started at a newspaper called the christian science monitor and that was explicitly founded as an antidote to the hearst and pulitzer era they were fighting yellow journalism and we had a guy at our paper named david road who now writes for the new york times and while he was there at the monitor he won a pulitzer for his coverage of bosniaherzegovina the the conflict there certainly and i remember thinking how ironic it was that this was this newspaper seventh pulitzer and they're always bragging about their pulitzers and yet pulitzer was the very thing he was the guy that the founder of the newspaper you know was really trying to push back against their others pushing back against hurston pulitzer in that same way trying to clean up the press you know certainly and if you look back from when the ox owes burger family bought the new york times a little bit before this period that's one of the things that they professed that they were going to produce in their newspaper news without favor without fear right that was always present in some level in american journalism but it was not the dominant form of journalism until after the second world war when the again the news marketplace shifted dramatically most people who grew up in remember that era lived probably city that was served by one newspaper that newspaper had basically a monopoly in that town there only a few cities in america in the postwar era or by nineteen seventy that actually had real sort of competitive newspaper markets new york city being one boston and chicago being another but only a few when you have monopoly control of an area saint louis for example the newspaper then is trying to appeal to everybody when it tries to appeal to everybody then it's news gets a lot more serious and somber and it's a pinion driss to the back of the sections and that's to simply a smart business in because that way you're not gonna offend readers who might have a different ideological stance yeah that's the opposite of what of what pulitzer and hearst doing they were out there clubbing addy every day to fight for that reader and woo them over to their side what do you think it was though after world war two that created those conditions that hunger for the objective journalism that came to be the standard in that second part of the twentieth says theory i mean a lot of people sort of are nostalgic for return to to something more like that and i'm just sort of wondering what would you say how would you identify the factors that that ultimately led to objective journalism as we know it sure so you would say hunger on the audience i would more cynically say actually what it was was a great system that newspaper owners had of finding away that there would be no competition what you really had after the second world war was the emergence of television as a you know mass media means which began to suck a lot of advertising dollars that newspapers traditionally could claim for themselves right once that happened a lot of newspapers collapsed you had tremendous consolidation and that's when you had this massive shift between towns and cities that had two competing sources of news to towns and cities that were dominated by one newspaper that one newspaper again the incentive to not upset advertisers to not upset different readers becomes this practice of objective journalism which is again a smart way to feed your audience when you have no competition i'm wondering though if in a way what we're really talking about was news that was monopolized by a handful of of of operators really and the television networks to the extent that they had news operations in for a while there they did have rather robust news operations international news operations even that everyone was looking over everyone else's shoulder to make sure that they had the the story that the other guy did absolutely and that's really where they competed they competed for scoops but not for perspective they were you had this allah gobbly of nbc abc and cbs which until nineteen eighty divided up the entire country and so they were really trying to create a mass audience to appeal to someone in seattle as well as someone in miami and again when.
