"What is the are you kidding? I mean, they worked so well is the opposition. I mean, Fox News Channel I suspect is going toe gain enormous audience because they now have the you know they're now outside the palace Gates. Right? I mean, they have a big trouble. You and I've talked about this before they the Murdoch family has a has a big choice to make Andre looks like they're making in this certainly already, which is do they toned down the volume? After what happened, Um do they dial things back? Or do they double down in order to keep their audience and grow their audience now? On bright Now they seem like they're doubling down right now. Fox News is, um, is spreading things about Antifa being in charge of what happened to the capital or they're not talking about it at all. They're talking about other things, you know, talking about how censorship has been has been imposed on the right wing. So you know, it seems like they're not trying to calm things down. We'll see what happens. But that's but the GOP that has to become the adult in the room. You know, the Mitch McConnells have become the adult the room and communicate to these guys. Look, you're not helping us long term. You're destroying their. But is that the case is that the case, are they not? I mean, I think a lot have achieved a lot a lot of political gain through seeking that limelight on Fox News Channel. They did. They did, but has but was was what happened it on Capitol Hill. The breaking point. Is it enough them President Trump is going to be leaving with an approval, unproven rating of around 29 to 35%, depending on the polls. That's that's the core Trump base. That's not the court. That's not the Trump base where that's at the core base rather of a successful political party. So do other leaders. The other adults in the room. Go and speak to their right wing media buddies and say, Look, we got to do things a little differently. A Zeiss Am I come, Mark? I really It's a hard habit to break. Really? They depended on these people now for 25 years. So you know, I mean, this is the This is the free publicity that politicians can get through the media and so to the degree that you want that publicity, which could be so effective to be on the number one cable news network, which is Fox You. You want to play ball with them? And so, uh, you suggested it. It's a difficult decision. We're talking to Joe for Rollo, who writes on media and politics for the hill. I want to mention cause you mentioned the Murdochs that James Murdoch. He's the son of Rupert Murdoch. He blamed UH, news outlets that promoted lies for the capital Riot. And I think, uh, you see what James Murdoch does. He's sort of the quote unquote Good. Murdock. He kind of left the family fold about 45 years ago, maybe a little more recently than that, Um, because because of Fox News And what was going on there, so he's still on the board. He still has his shares, but he doesn't He's not active in the day By day. He lives in Connecticut. He's has an American wife. So Rupert Murdoch and Lachlan his other son. Are the ones in charge of Fox Corp and Fox News. James Murdoch has said fairly recently in a couple of magazine articles that he may do something to change the direction of the company. He hasn't. He's been no more specific than that. Through his power on the board and as as in a large shareholder. We will see if what happened in the capital a couple weeks ago. We We compelled him to do that and do that sooner rather than later. Yeah, it was. It was a very public break. And this was a very public bit of finger pointing by James Murdoch to say, Hey, it was the news outlets promoting the lives that actually led to the capital riot. I mean, he said it just that way. So, uh, Joe the inauguration. I just want to quickly spend a second on that. And let you know briefly that I feel as though the pomp and circumstance I generally could do without it on a lot of things. No, I don't mean to be always the guy who you know is against the parade or the flyover. Whatever. Okay, I understand that that could be a stirring emotional, powerful thing. That said in the context of the last couple of weeks, I would really try to mute the inauguration a bit for safety reasons. I don't know to what extent there. They're doing that. But on the media side, I guess I'm asking you am I right? Or am I just being an angry old man who doesn't like a good party? I mean, I think the inauguration is a bit over the top anyway. Yeah. Hey, listen, you could be right about both those things Mark, which is over the top. And you already angry, old man. I don't think those are contradictory. So why don't you are you're both? You're right. And you are angry. No, I mean, I think Look, even even before what happened on Capitol Hill, they were they were dialing it back because Because of the state of the country, because of where the economy is What's going on with Cove. It it is. It is not a time to start spending lavishes amount of money on things like parades and celebrations. It's just not it sends. To your media point. It's It's the wrong visual. It's the wrong message. At this point in time, you want to send us a more sober message. And that says, Look, we get it. We get it. People at home watching this, um, are worried they're filled with anxiety and with economics, doubts. So we're not going to do some splashy event that's been underwritten by a bunch of our wealthy donors and corporations were going to tone it down. They've done that a bit. I agree with you. I think they can do even more that toning down, especially given what happened on Capitol Hill. But even without that justice center in the middle of a pandemic, a bunch of people are out of work. And I mean, I say a bunch to be polite. This is these are really tough times. You know, the culture is taking a major body blow. And I think you know this over the top inauguration. I could do without it. I'm just cannot say you love your country. Okay, well, I'm just just my thought. Hayrides for the hill. You want to find his latest column? You can find it at my Twitter feed at Mark T Live. He is Joe for Roma back. Thanks to you guys. All right? Yeah, I'll talk to you soon. I disagree with you. I think that this is going to be an important day. I think I think the country needs to see this happen. Um, I agree with you all the fireworks. And what have you you can do without that. But I think we need to see this transition actually unfold then we don't disagree. I don't understand what you say. You disagree. You can't have a significant day without a big without. The over the top stuff. I don't understand what your point is. I'm not saying that the day shouldn't live a significant thing that I'm saying that I'm not saying Don't do it. I'm saying do it in a more muted fashion. Do it with respect to the fact that this country is dealing with serious issues right now that involve the economy. People are desperate for money, and I don't need some Incredibly expensive over the top show thrown by a bunch of billionaires just cause they want toe. Memorialized or otherwise reflect this change of leadership. I understand the stirring nature and powerful nature of these ceremonies, end of ceremony and ritual generally, but what I'm suggesting is you can still have ceremony and ritual still have your transition still have it be to your words a significant day. What I think you cannot do or should not do might be another way to put it. Is to have it so lavish that it's just In bad taste given to where we're given where we are. I'm so glad that security. Yeah, I was gonna ask if they were gonna be tanks, But I think you answer my question because Trump is already using the tanks for his departure. Oh, yeah. The tanks are all in Thanks for all in in years. Hey, when we come back, you know it's not. There's some amazing covered 19 stories and I want to share one or two with you. But it's not the covert 19 and it's not the capital. That is getting a.

What is the risk of allergic reaction to COVID-19 vaccines?
"See those they respect getting the shots, the thought is they'll be willing to get one too. And when we reach about 70% immunity meeting 70% of us have either had Cove it or have had the colored vaccine. We can finally put away the masks and hug once again. One of those respected people who got a shop this week is Dr Kevin Slavin, a pediatric infectious disease specialist who's also director of Quality for Hackensack, Meridian Children's Health in New Jersey. ABC News producer Joy Piazza. Rupert spoke to him right after he received his vaccination. What was that process like? It actually was remarkably smooth. We have because of the limited early distribution. We've identified highest risk. Health care workers. Should be in in what we're calling Phase one and they set up this incredible process where They can administer enough vaccines in a very brief amount of time in a single location. With everybody keeping their distance. Everybody masking. And even with the period of observation that's needed afterwards to make sure that they're no immediate side effects. The The whole process from walking in the door. Registering, making sure that I didn't have any of the screening conditions that would. That would be a reason not to get the vaccine at that point. Getting the vaccine and being observed for 15 minutes. That whole process took about half an hour. Every step work exactly the way it was supposed to. I didn't wanna sort of ask how you feel right now. Do you have any sort of underlying Grogginess or fatigue or pain at the injection site. Anything like that. So yesterday my arm was a little sore. So you know I could I could I could use it. It wasn't a big deal, but it was A little bit different from what I get with most most vaccinations, but that was it. There were these couple of instances of allergic reactions in the UK, and then there were two in Alaska. Is it something that folks should worry about? If they have allergic reactions to medicine or or food or anything like that? Should they talked their doctor the way that It looks like it has come up is for people who have had serious allergic reactions before and it's certainly not everybody who's had a serious allergic reaction before. But people who've had serious allergic reactions before mostly focusing on an awful axis, which is, you know the most severe form where there could be severe swelling and your difficulty breathing. And swelling of the throat swelling of the tongue swelling of the lips, all of which presents somebody from being able to really breathe effectively. I think for people who had to severe allergic reactions that that would be something to very seriously discuss with their physician, Bilton observation time immediately afterwards where your observed in a setting We're a health care provider can administer immediate treatment. If you have that that is actually really key for anybody who wants to get the vaccine but has a zit concern that if they speak with their physician, and it felt that it's safe, making sure that it is given in a place that can provide immediate rescue treatment for a severe allergic reaction, and then get somebody quickly to a place where they can provide ongoing treatment goes, that's gonna be the real key component for that. That's ABC News.
British TV and the threat from tech
"How this week off. Calm the media regulator put out a pretty stark warning traditional. Uk broadcasting is at risk without radical shake-up but at risk of what and. What kind of shakeup are they talking about already. This ofcom is given the go-ahead to two new tv channels including one from rupert murdoch's news. Uk and ofcom is reportedly about to take on the massive task of regulating online harm including social media platforms like youtube an instagram but is a uk regulator really able to police the world wide web. While i'm joined by the person best able to answer those questions day. Melanie does is the newish chief. Executive of com a job. She started in february this year. And she's giving her first major interview to the media. Show elanie welcome to the media. Show thank you very much. Let's start with a quickfire round what you listen to this morning. Gosh i was listening to bbc. Radio news radio four today program. Which is what i often do in the mornings. I'm also these days increasing times radio well but that's how often wake up in the morning. I watched your perm new source. That you i heard two in the mornings day program. So it's a mix of the traditional newspapers. We got quite a lot in our household during the day. I i look at sky news up quite a lot. also bbc news and i'm a fan of bbc. Radio and things like newscast is one of my favorites as well. What was the best thing you've seen on. Tv recently This time of year for me and my family is definitely strictly is just that time of year. Isn't it so. We're addicted to that. Every saturday night and sunday night for the results. Show georgia tech news most evenings. Some evenings are sometimes. Watch the bbc news. Sometimes i tv but to be honest increasingly like a lot of people. I'm i'm watching things on ketchup or doing things on the radio. Lord by the world catch up shortly in terms of online video. Subscriptions huge choices as disney plus amazon. Prime video netflix. Do you have. We've got two three disney but we've got net flicks and prime and some of the others so so we watch a real bletchley of traditional british tv alongside some of the new streaming services and we'll come onto kind of that balance and what it should look like in the future life for those who don't know huge amount about your background your career. You very distinguished career seven. Have you have actually worked in the arts or media or on a film set. Tv newsroom any of that stuff. No i never have myself. But of course what what i what i do bring is inadequate. Lot of understanding. You're kind of public policy. And how you make decisions in that context and i am also an avid viewer and listener. Tv and radio. Why would come appoint someone who's a massive public policy but it hasn't got a background in media and communications. I mean sharon. What was she went to the treasury for many is what does that say about the thinking behind that your appointment what. I'm not so much sure about my own appointment but the important thing in off comments that we have got a lot of experience from all sorts of different walks of life. We've got people who are radio engineers. He knew everything about managing spectrum. Which is one of the jobs we do. We've also got a lot of people with a background in the broadcasting industry. So might my job is to leave the organization and pull that together now. This is the show. We talk a lot about off. Komo news programming media regulator. This may not realize quite how broad you'll remain is. Could you just give us a quick run through of the cost of various that. Come under your purview. The communications regulator. So we look at things like how we get broadband improved across the country and mobile phone services making sure that the consumers valley served. But we also gonna come onto you today. We oversee the broadcasting costing sector and some of the rules and regulations that were that just says of come does a content regulator. Can you talk us through this week's ruling you made over i tv. What did you find what happens next. We found that. I had broken our rules. This is about how they were running on their competitions and some viewers who who wrote in and we're in that competition didn't have their votes counted. So what was great with a really good engagement with tv. The moment they spotted this they told us about it and they've they've really taken steps to address it so we won't be taking any further action but they did break the rules the rules. Should they be punished including facing fines. Well in this case it was human error it was just about putting the data on a spreadsheet incorrectly. And also i. Tv did engage with us really well. I'm really constructively right from the beginning. So we take that kind of thing into account and that's why we'll be taking further action of comes authority outfit. Come from the fact that it can hurt people financially. There's a bit of social stigma opprobrium attached to the fact that you might be found against by off calm but is your power ultimately that you can hurt people in their pocket. Well i mean. I think when you a regulator you've got a range of things that you're you're able to do one of them. Yes is to is to sanction people and find things but ideally is a last resort. An awful of ofcom does and we've been. We've done this in the report. We publish this week is actually bring research and evidence bear on on important questions and to make sure this transparency about what's going on let's focus a little bit on euro as a content regulator and look at some of the other big media stories around this week so all of a doubt in the culture sector. You must speak to you. On a regular basis. as written to netflix's asking them to make clear their drama series. The crown is fictionalized. Now if the crown with broadcast on bbc one and therefore fell under of comes burkas code which you guys make. The bbc put a disclaimer on it. Well i think it's a really interesting question. I mean you know as as you hinting out. There are different rules for different kinds of streams that we can now crtv so if you watching a program on bbc warn itv's for pretty much on sky virgin then you'll again you're watching programs are regulated by off. Commander are broadcasting code. If you're watching netflix six then it's a much narrower so regulations. In fact the regulator there is in holland because net flicks headquartered there for the whole of europe and actually you're watching on on youtube. Then there's no regulation at all so it is quite confusing sometimes for the viewer. Things

A Big Publishing Plot Twist: Penguin Random House to Buy Simon & Schuster for $2.2 Billion
"Biggest news to hit the publishing industry this year. Possibly several years happened last wednesday. And we're betting that you missed it after all. You were probably contemplating cooking a turkey for two and planning zoom thanksgiving dinners with relatives right so just in case here. It is again the parent company of penguin random house's buying simon and schuster for two billion dollars penguin random house or pr h has already america's largest book publisher according to the new york times. Should the acquisition go through and there are some caveats which will get to pr. H will be. The industry's first mega publisher. The times claims. Let's delve into this just a little bit as we've talked about here before simon and shuster is among the oldest of today's big five publishing houses and one of the most distinguished dick simon and schuster founded the company in nineteen twenty four. The partners first product was hardly a literary masterpiece. It was a book of crossword puzzles. And according to simon and schuster's corporate historian it was a runaway bestseller today. Almost one hundred years. After the lowly crossword puzzle got the entrepreneurial venture off the ground simon and schuster or s operates in a different stratosphere. Today it is america's third largest publisher over the years it's published scads of famous even legendary authors including ernest hemingway and f scott fitzgerald also political figures from both sides of the aisle including jimmy carter hillary clinton and donald trump and contemporary authors. Like bob woodward stephen king and anti prue as well as judy blume s prints and authors have won fifty seven pulitzer prizes and innumerable other literary awards including several caldecott medals one of the highest honors given to children's books the company now sells about two thousand titles annually all told s and s takes in close to nine hundred million dollars a year but early this year. Parent company viacom. Cbs decided to go all in on streaming video in sports looking to cut close to a billion dollars in operating expenses ceo. Bob bakish announced that s wasn't what he called a core asset hence the sale in march the rumored price for us and s was one point two billion dollars a bidding. Were hike the final price to two point. Two billion dollars among other contenders america's second largest publisher harpercollins also vivendi. A french company. That owns a stake in. American publisher has yet and rupert murdoch's news corp clearly penguin random house's parent german media giant bertelsmann was willing to pay top dollar for s and s one reason in addition to the competition between publishers for blockbuster bestsellers the big five face. A formidable rival in certain amazon and when it comes to fighting off amazon size matters since two thousand nine amazon has been a publisher. Not just the world's largest both retailer today. It has sixteen imprints that publish everything from thrillers. To romance novels it signs. Top selling authors like dean koontz patricia. Cornwell taking them and their millions of sales away from traditional publishers in two thousand seventeen amazon published more than twelve hundred titles according to the wall street journal if those numbers have grown in the last three years amazon could well already rival simon and schuster for the volume of new works. It's producing what makes amazon such a tough competitor is a book publisher of course is it status as a bookseller. Moreover it has a number of marketing weapons that traditional publishers. Do not such as the ability to easily promote low priced e books to millions of amazon prime members and kindle owners. The wall street journal reports that along with oodles of cash to lure away big name authors as the largest american publisher penguin. Random house has the clout and logistical network to compete successfully with amazon. The merged company would have annual revenues of three billion dollars according to book industry bible publishers. Weekly but we should note here. The acquisition faces obstacles worthy of an epic novel authors and agents represented by the authors guild. Say such a deal will make it even harder for new authors and so called mid list writers to get published meaning. If you haven't written a blockbuster or a solid backlist title your chances to get published and your earnings could shrink. Pr h says. Simon and schuster will remain editorially independent and both publishing houses say they remain devoted to readers and writers still publishers weekly reports that by blending s. npr h german-owned. Bertelsmann would own about one third of the us book market. That's the number that could trigger antitrust. Investigators to closely scrutinize the deal. According to the new york times but those market share numbers are in dispute in both directions. The authors guild which causes tie up says a combined. Pr h. s. would wind up publishing half of all trade books in the us. Meaning not textbooks penguin. Random house's leadership argues not true and says future market share would be less than twenty percent and that an antitrust investigation is unlikely what happens next will likely hinge on which of these numbers comes closest to reality

Names erased: How Indigenous people are reclaiming what was lost
"You don't have to look very far to find Examples York region Ontario was named after your can the UK Regina is named after Queen Victoria Regina being the Latin for Queen and well British Columbia obviously. For Christina. Gray reclaiming those place names is vital and it's personal. The Simpson and Denny lawyer is one of two researchers behind reclaiming indigenous place names. The policy report was released in October of two thousand nineteen by the Yellow had institute at Ryerson University in Toronto. I've reached her at her home in Prince Rupert BBC. Welcome to unreserved thanks for having me. So you are a CO researcher with Daniel Ruck and you looked into naming practices and the erasure of indigenous place names. What did you find? We really wanted to do a cross section of the history of settler colonial renaming practices from indigenous place names to places that are an English or in French, or there's also note anglicised version as well and none look at what is the practice of reclaiming indigenous place names that is happening in various places are ranging from like the Northwest Territories, Quebec B. C. Saskatchewan Manitoba to give. People a different idea of what's going on across these places and territories, and so how do original place names get changed? You know from from the original indigenous words into you know the things that they become how does that happen? Basically what's happening as a result of mostly white people or settlers who were? Changing the names to suit their whims, our desires or values when places were being changed from indigenous place names, saedtler place names like we have to remember the population of Canada at that time was a lot lower than it is now yes. There were indigenous peoples on these lands and territories, but there is also a different perspective by settlers at that time as well, and so they I think they wanted the the places to reflect. What was going on in their life for different ideas that were important to them. I can think that Greek in Vancouver I was looking into the two sisters, which is now called the lions and a lot of people go heikal lions in in Vancouver, and they kind of overlook how sound and you can see them pretty much any point in Vancouver. But before they were called the lions, they recalled the two sisters and it relates to an oral history. Of The squamish nation and it's an oral history that also relates to northerners like myself because the oral history it's it's about making peace offerings between the northern and the southern people's. used to war with each other and so that has much significance to me as a simpson person who used to live in Vancouver the two sisters in Vancouver is definitely one that I've heard about Are there any other striking examples of renamed places that you found y'all like almost makes me want to cry actually there's a place that was called Lake Squat Kit. It's like near Kenmore, but the word squad specifically, Drago Tori term to refer to indigenous women and. Terrible. Stereotypes associated with it as well, and those are based off of how some settlers song about indigenous. and so you can just think about like it's a Grayson, deeply misogynistic but. People like had such a personal connection to the place name of squash it and like didn't want it to be renamed and. But like that I think has such a affect the way that you call places. And think about there are so many missing murdered indigenous woman in Canada and how you referred to that something that. So awfully in calling squad like those have affects real-life affects on people it's not just about placing. And is renaming more. Can it be more than just a symbolic gesture you know on how is renaming more than just a symbolic gesture i? Guess I think we always hope that naming practices or the revitalization of indigenous place names will go beyond just symbolic gestures who also have substantial effects as well and sue. Enrich policy really wanted to also look at like what are some of the mechanisms. In which indigenous people are. Using policy and Law to revitalize indigenous place names and so we looked up land use planning conservation co-management. Events and also modern day treaties and self government agreements in which indigenous peoples are using these different mechanisms available to on to re attribute and revitalize indigenous placing you know this work is being done by indigenous people. So think it's really important to attribute that recognition to them.

U.S. charges Russian military hackers
"A story for you. May Two thousand seventeen voters in France went to the polls to elect a new French president just like in our election the before then Russian intelligence agencies in the Russian government played hard in the French election that year russian-owned websites pushing outlandish rumours about the centrist candidate Emmanuel macron. Those rumors were then processed into pieces Russian state media outlets. macron's rival was a far right candidate named Marine Le Pen she had inherited from her Holocaust denying Father Control of Francis Post. World War Two Fascist Party. So it was the neo-fascist party running against macron. Lapenne far-right neo-fascist campaign was explicitly bankrolled by a Russian state controlled bank. Marine Le Pen went to Moscow and met with Vladimir Putin at the Kremlin during the campaign. This was not subtle. But it was. Too much for Russia to pass up a divisive racist far right fascist candidate injecting chaos into the elections in a major. European. Democracy in twenty seventeen that's like catnip to Russia. Right? They want to undermine democracy everywhere. They will undermine Western countries in general however they can. But Russia's saved its boldest move for the eve of that French. Just two days before the vote. Russian. Hackers part of the same Russian military unit that had disseminated hacked democratic emails during the twenty, sixteen American election the before. They dumped tens of thousands of files, online, nine gigabytes of stolen emails and other information all hacked from Emmanuel Macron's campaign, and that might have become the dominant news story of the final weekend of that campaign. Before French voters went to the polls. It might have actually ended up upending that election if it were not for a quirk of French law, which imposes a media blackout on anything relating to the campaign for full day before voting starts all the way through until polls close on election day. That blackout period in French law precedes this whole scandal with Russia messing with the French election. But it ended up saving the day. The material that was hacked by Russian intelligence got posted online and France just hours before media blackout period began just minutes before the blackout began at midnight that night the macron campaign issued a statement warning that the hackers had inserted forged fake documents into the hack stolen material they pleaded with the media to not report on that junk. And the media didn't. They stuck to the rules. And in the end, Emmanuel macron beat the far-right neo-fascist Marine Le Pen by more than thirty points. And there's a couple of reasons for us be thinking about sort of relearning the story of that. Two thousand seventeen French election right now one is that the intelligence community is raising the alarm that Russian intelligence is executing an operation just like the one they did in France on us right now the supposedly Biden scandal that Rudy Giuliani has been shopping the scandal he. Managed to get printed in the New York Post which president trump has been gleefully promoting ever since including posing with a copy of that paper in the Oval Office that junk that Giuliani has been promoting is being actively investigated by federal investigators as potentially part of a hostile foreign influence operation illegally targeting our election and the intelligence community is investigating this Johnny on the spot. In part because they saw this coming in advance, this is in the New York Times last week quote, The Times reported last January the Ukrainian company were Hunter Biden was once on the Board respond had been hacked by the same Russian Intelligence Unit that hacked the Democratic National Committee in two thousand, sixteen last month US intelligence analysts contracted several people with knowledge of that hack. Asking them for further information because they picked up chatter that stolen burris, my emails would be leaked in the form of an October surprise among their chief concerns was that the burris material would be leaked alongside forged materials and it it's to hurt Biden's candidacy as Russian. Hackers did when they dumped real e mails alongside forgeries ahead of the French elections in two thousand seventeen. So that's what they did to Macron in two, thousand, seventeen they hacked all install all of this stuff from his campaign than they mixed it up with Ford stuffing dumped it right before the election. That's what the US intelligence community said. They believed was going to happen with Barista and sort of October surprise firm Rudy Giuliani. Thank right on time Rudy Giuliani shows up some emails from a mysterious source that are totally unverified and unverified able and only one Rupert Murdoch owned right wing tabloid will air that junk. Put it in their paper. So. That's one reason. The Russian operation in the two thousand, seventeen French election newly relevant to our lives right now, the Russians may be trying that exact same trick all over again except we don't have media blackout rules. The other reason that that two thousand seventeen Russian operation in France is newly relevant. Is that the guys who did it just got indicted by the US Justice Department today? Here they are the Russian military intelligence hackers who carried out that operation to interfere in the French election in two thousand seventeen the Justice Department says in the indictment today that these guys also launched major malware and hacking operations that shut down the power grid in Ukraine that hit the parliament in the nation of Georgia that chemical weapons investigators in the UK and Europe who were looking into the Russian poisoning of former Russian spy, Sergei scruple who was poisoned with a Russian nerve agent on British territory they say, they also orchestrated hacks that hit hospitals in companies. In the United States. They also organize tax that hit the two thousand eighteen winter Olympics quite a list. And? Although. One of the Russian hacker that was indicted today was previously indicted by Robert Muller in two thousand eighteen for his role in the hacking operation against the twenty sixteen election here in the US, today's indictment of these Russian hackers doesn't include any charges related to American election interference this year. That said the election. The American election is two weeks from tomorrow. It's hard to look today's indictment without trying to understand how it relates to our own election and what the Justice Department is trying to signal here. Is that the right way to look at this. Joining us now is Jeremy Bash. He served as chief of staff at the CIA and at the Defense Department under President Obama Jeremy Nice to see. Thanks for making time. It, Rachel. So, this is a lot. Going on the surprise announcement today from the Justice Department about the indictment of these Russian hackers when you look at this with your background in intelligence and your understanding of what Russia has done to target our democracy and others. What do you think is most important here for people to understand. Well I think was most important is that the GRU this Russian military organization that was responsible for the two thousand Sixteen Hacking Dump Operation Against the Democrats that was responsible for the two thousand seventeen election appearance in France as you noted, and is responsible for these militias cyber attacks globally including, against us, hospitals and. They are very active. They're very capable and they are in fact probably behind this this Russian. Intelligence operation at least a looks and appears to be Russian intelligence operation targeting the Biden campaign. Last. Week Andrew Weisman, who is part of the Miller investigation wrote in Law Fair about the decision that was made by bill bar earlier this year this spring to drop criminal charges against Russian companies that had participated in the attack on our election in two thousand sixteen and that didn't actually get a lot of attention when it happened in March I think in part because the country was overwhelmed by what was starting to happen to us in terms of covid why spent makes the case that before may have acted essentially improperly in dismissing those charges essentially signaling to Russia that the. US Criminal Law wouldn't be used against them as a tool if they wanted to interfere in the election this year I'm wondering if this might be a signal in the other direction, if this might be some sort of signal to brushback rush intelligence ahead of what appears to be their ongoing efforts to boost trump in his reelection effort. Hartono, racial. But what we do know is that there are mixed signals being sent by the US government here. Today we have the Justice Department indicting Russian hackers, but you've got the president of the United States welcoming condoning what looks apparently like a Russian intelligence operation targeting the Biden campaign remember Rachel that Rudy Giuliani. In Kiev, with Andrei Dirk Catch Ukrainian lawmaker who has been assessed by US intelligence and announced by our Treasury Department to be a Russian asset for the last decade. Giuliani goes to Kiev meets with Dir cash and he comes back and low these many months later, Giuliani surfaces up with these a very mysterious emails. So every Intelligence Professional Rachel that I've talked to the last twenty four hours says that this walks like a Russian intelligence disinformation campaign this talks like a Russian intelligence to information campaign. This is most likely Russian intelligence is permission campaign against the Biden team.
US election to have far fewer international observers than planned
"There are lots of theories and predictions about the various things that could go wrong with the U. S November election that makes the role of election observers perhaps more important than ever, especially international election observers who could beam or impartial than American citizens. As the world's Rupert Chinois reports. These monitors have just started their mission in the US The Organisation for Security and Cooperation in Europe or OS Sea, is the largest international body charged with monitoring elections It wanted to bring 500 observers for the upcoming US selections. Instead, there will be about 130, mostly because of covert concerns. Fewer people than expected volunteered to come to the U. S. The major thing that we're going to have to make an adjustment on is thie actual in polling station Election Day observation That said All other aspects of the mission remain effectively unchanged. That's the leader of the S. C. E s mission in the US Polish senator and European Parliament member Ursula got sick at the end of the day. I'm so certain it's going to be accurate Gonna be a true reflection and impartial reflection objective of though what's been happening here in the United States gets sick, will lead a 30 member team that will issue an interim report in three weeks. We're following legal developments were following the camp. Pain and as much as the environment. The atmosphere of the campaign were following the postal ballot just before the election get. 16 will be joined by 100 additional monitors from 30 countries. They'll deploy in pairs under a mandate of strict non interference. They'll be watching things like voter registration, mail in ballots and access to the polls. We'll also look at media coverage, including intolerant rhetoric gets sick, says the monitors will attempt to compensate for their smaller numbers by observing a quote representative sample of polling locations. What we're having to go to do on Election Day is pick our places well, but it will be, I would say the analysis there will be more anecdotal because the sample group will Regrettably, be too small, and that is not anybody's fault. The S C E typically observes elections in developing countries, but like all other 56 members of the global organization The U. S. Has also obligated to invite international election observers. Those observers on Lee started coming in 2002 after the messy Bush v. Gore election of 2000. Not all states have allowed the monitors. In those this year, just 28 States and the District of Columbia have invited international observers. There's also the added complications of President Trump's repeated questioning of mail in ballots, claims of a rigged election and evasion on whether he'll respect the results of the election. Get sick, refused to comment on what she called those hypotheticals at this stage of can't prejudge, you know, I mean, I'm hearing that there are concerns, but then we need to have evidence space We need to see. You know, we need to see the fact we need to see whether things really do or do not go wrong. But those concerns are white, so important tohave international monitors, says Judith Kelly, a professor of political science and dean of Duke's Sanford School of Public Policy. What I find striking is that the United States In many ways was the driving force behind the creation ofthe The whole idea of international election observers and have fostered that movement throughout the world observing elections worldwide, and it is rather inconceivable that we're finding ourselves in a situation now. Where we legitimately appear to be having a need for them ourselves in developing countries, she says. International monitors have been instrumental in shoring up public confidence in elections, but Kelly says they may not have that effect this time. I am skeptical. That they will have any impact. In the United States specifically in this election. Not because they don't have the potential to do so but because they won't be given the opportunity to do so. The day after the election, the S C E team will hold a press conference to talk about their initial findings afterward. As usual, they're prepared to stay to monitor the counting of ballots and whatever court process and they play out to decide the election. Roughly two months later, they'll issue a final report with recommendations for what could have been done better

"Executive of the German carmaker Audi goes on trial in Munich later over his role in the diesel emissions scandal at the parent company votes Foggin Rupert start, Lor faces charges of fraud and force advertising.

He stands accused of allowing sales of cars fitted with the system to continue even after the cheating had come to light.
How should the media cover the presidential race in the Trump era?
"Rid of the ballots. Locker up has now morphed into get rid of the ballots. And that's become an effect. The trump campaign slogan and the trump campaign strategy. It became the strategy yesterday when Donald Trump said that. And get rid of the ballots are the first words of a New York Daily News op Ed piece today with the headline. The president is psychopath the new. York daily. News is one hundred and one years old, which makes it New York City's youngest circulating daily newspaper. And it carries a headline in twenty twenty. That was unthinkable. When the daily news was founded in one thousand, nine hundred nineteen. President is a psychopath. The article is written by two psychologists and it says get rid of the ballots and there won't be a transfers said Donald Trump on Wednesday. This comment is a direct dangerous expression of his anti-democratic intention. If unstopped trump may well destroy our two, hundred, forty, four year, old democracy, it is time to stop pulling punches. It is time to stop relying on political pundits to weigh in on trump's behavior, which they often softened and even normalized. We are psychologists and we are convinced Donald trump is a psychopath his malignant behavior over the past four years is growing escalating right before our eyes trump's psychopathy will change us forever if he is not stopped. And today the New York. Times. Published up ed piece by the newspapers distinguished columnist Michelle Goldberg which says the President Quote Daily defiles his office with.

End of Abe era leaves Japan still searching for way forward
"Your Shahida Suda as the country's new prime minister on Monday. 71 year old Mr Suder was overwhelmingly elected as the leader of the ruling Liberal Democratic Party, replacing Shinzo Abe has dominated Japanese politics for the past eight years. Mr was expected to serve until the end of next year, but announced suddenly he was stepping down last month, pleading poor health. There's now concerned that Japan could be about to return to what became known as revolving door politics when the country changed Prime Minister's almost every year, Rupert Wingfield Hayes reports. Yeah. You see that pit shuttle get this's something No one would have predicted even a few weeks ago. 71 year old Yoshida super being proclaimed leader of Japan's all powerful Liberal Democratic Party. And by default, the country's new prime minister. Mr Sugar is not known for his charisma or his oratory. And as he made his rather ponderous victory speech, you can hear why you know anybody. Ronnie. Still cocaine. I want to break down bureaucratic divisions invested interests, he says on the blind adherence to president indication to form a cabinet that will work hard for the people. That takes a kike Agos, Cary Most Japanese, No, Mr Sugar as Prime Minister Shinzo Abe's long serving grim faced spokesman Up till now. He has always been a backroom guy. A fixer. He has none of the charm or diplomatic skills. Mr Abba used TTO win over President Donald Trump. But according to those who know him like economists and long term Tokyo resident Yes, Bacall, Mr Sugar brings other attributes to the game. Here is a man who gets up at five o'clock in the morning. Does 100 sit ups and then reads all the newspapers and by 6 30. He's starting meetings right with business people with advisers, you know, with outside economists, he absorbs like a sponge and wants to get things done for the country. He's not interested in any of the glitz or blink that comes with war nongovernment. The problem for Mr Suder. Is he has no mandate from the Japanese people. His elevation to the top job was a stitch up by L. V P. Party bosses in smoke filled back rooms. Perhaps because of that much is being made of Mr Segers Humble background. The son of a strawberry farmer, he worked in a cardboard factory to pay his way through college. He's certainly very different from most of Japan's recent prime ministers like Mr Abbott, the silent of a powerful political dynasty, but in the scheming world of Japanese politics Rashid, a circus. Humble origins could also be his undoing. According to Professor Koichi Nakano of Tokyo's Sophia University. Mr Silva comes from a humble background. He really doesn't have his own power base. You know, he doesn't belong to any faction on DH. He actually, you know, Rose to power because he was Mr B's preferred choice on the party bosses rally behind him, You know, emergency situation. But once the emergency situation is gone, and once the party bosses study realized that they're not getting all they wanted. I'm sure there's going to be past trouble. They're both from

He takes over from Shinzo are they after easily securing the governing Liberal Democratic Party leadership on Monday, Mr Sieger, the former Cabinet secretary, is known as a tough fixer rather than a charismatic leader. From Tokyo. He's our correspondent Rupert Wingfield Hayes. So when he gets back from the palace, he will hold a press conference as the new prime minister, and he will announce his new Cabinet that hasn't formally being done yet. But there's been loads of speculation in the media already about It's makeup. Mr Seeger claims that he is goingto have a cabinet that will really work for the Japanese people. But what we've seen already, if this cabinet turns out to be true that it is a careful balance. Representing all of the major factions in the LDP, who supported the vote for him to become prime minister. And that's already leading to speculation here that Mr Sieger is really going to be controlled by the faction leaders in the LDP who got together in a back room to make him the new prime minister.

From Tokyo, his Rupert Winfield Hayes as he faced reporters for the last time as prime minister. Mr Abby said he was proud of his achievements and had worked every day to revive Japan's economy and protect Japan's interests. 71 year old Yoshihide Suga.

UN urges 'independent' Russian probe of Navalny poisoning
"Russian Federation has been urged by you and rights chief Michelle. BASCH, layer to carry out or cooperate with a rapid and transparent criminal investigation into the poisoning of opposition activist Alexei navalny citing German specialists who said they had unequivocal proof that Mr Navalny was poisoned with Nova Chalk nerve agent, the U. N. High Commissioner for human. Rights also highlighted other cases. Of poisoning and targeted assassination of Russian citizens in the past twenty years, this patent was profoundly disturbing. The high commissioner said in a statement adding that it was deeply regrettable that in many cases, perpetrators had not been held to account in Geneva misbash leads spokesperson Rupert Colville condemned the poisoning. He also explained that nerve agents and radioactive isotopes such as Novi Chalk polonium ten are sophisticated substances that are extremely hard to source. Not Materials that you can buy a pharmacy or A. Shop. Hardware store as the High Commissioner says, this raises numerous questions why use substances like these who is using them have it they acquired prior to his reported poisoning Mr Navalny had been repeatedly harassed arrested and assaulted either by the authorities or by unknown assailants according to the High Commissioner. Novelli was clearly someone who needed state protection. Even he was a political thorn in the side of the government she said adding that it was not good enough to simply deny he was poisoned nor the need for a thorough independent, impartial and transparent investigation into this assassination attempt.
Jacob Blake: Trump visits Kenosha to back police after shooting
"Yesterday and a question via White House reporter Donald Trump was asked if he condemned the vigilante killings carried out in Kenosha Wisconsin by a seventeen year old trump supporter from Illinois who was in illegal possession of the fifteen style rifle that he used to kill two protesters in Kenosha shooting one of them in the back. And wounding another donald trump not only declined the opportunity to condemn his seventeen year olds, supporters illegal possession of and use of that weapon to kill people. Donald trump actually offered a self defense theory in what is now the murder case that the seventeen year old has been charged him. And that is because Donald Trump believes the way for him to win. The presidential election is to win the vigilante vote. And the vigilante sympathizer vote. Last night at this hour on the Fox propaganda channel owned and operated by Donald trumps Favorite Emigrant Rupert Murdoch Donald Trump compared the police shooting of Jacob Blake in Kenosha. With a Golfer missing a PUTT. Shooting a guy in the back many times I mean. Couldn't you have done something different Caen of wrestle. In the meantime he might have been going for a weapon and you know as a whole big thing there but they choke just like in a golf tournament they miss a three foot comparing it to golf because he of course, that's what I'm saying people. Yes, he was comparing to golf and he was sanitizing what looks like an attempted murder by a police officer on video to just being an imperfect judgment made in a tense moment. For Donald Trump Jacob Blake, clinging to life in a hospital bed and Kenosha after repeated surgeries for these seven bullets fired into his body represents nothing more than a missed pot.
"rupert" Discussed on Even the Rich
"Own because there's no way in hell he's GonNa go work for his dad. He tried that when he was fifteen working at one of Rupert's papers and Sydney and he hated it. People were afraid to criticize him to his face even when he screwed up and boy does he screw up like the time he curled up on a couch. During a major press conference and a rival newspaper published a picture of him napping after that experience he decided that working for his dad was and I quote a nightmare. There was one job I had where I napped every single day between twelve and two and had a sign on the door saying I was at a meeting but I mean imagine the pressure of living in Rupert's shadow. Yeah those are some big footsteps to follow so he wants to break free. He wants his label. Raucous records to be edgy and experimental. I mean if you think about it. Rupa was edgy and experimental in his own way headless body in topless bar. Yup exactly early on he even signs of Van called Whore Gazprom. He wants raucous to put out records. That quote people's parents wouldn't want to listen to okay. So James is living his life and working on his own terms. Yes and he's really good at it. The labels a critical darling. He signs MOS DEF and Nem before they're famous and in nineteen ninety six when the labels only a year or two old someone offers to buy it who guests. The losing report has. How do you always know the radio? No it was rupert. His Dad and what? Rupert WANTS RUPERT GETS RAUCOUS BECOMES PART OF NEWSCORP and James Goes to work for his dad and unlike Liz he will move up fast he runs the Internet side for all of News Corp and pretty soon he's promoted to C. E. O. OF STAR TV and then there was one lachlan like his siblings. Lachlan went to a second Tier School Princeton. Remember when Liz was in college she hung out with the poshest people on campus while James stood out at Harvard. Thanks to his eyebrow piercing and mixologist skills. Lachlan's different. He keeps to himself. He spends all of his free time rock climbing in a dingy gym on campus. Pushing himself as hard as he can wearing twenty pound weighted vest. I'm not sure why. Maybe so he can suffer his best friend. Is this guy he meets climbing and the guy doesn't even know his name he thinks it's Laughlin. That's like your mother in law. Your last but basically Lachlan doesn't care about being popular. He doesn't WANNA stand out at all the way he sees it. School is just a stepping stone to working for his dad in one thousand. Nine hundred ninety when Lachlan's a freshman his dad asks him to leave Princeton and come see him in London. Rupert has always relied on Lachlan. He was the first son after all the chosen. One and Lachlan's never made any secret of the fact that he idolizes his dad. He used to lay awake all night listening to Rupert. Talk Business. With his dinner guests. He used to get up before dawn so he could have breakfast alone with his dad before he left for work. Lachlan was always there for Rupert. And that's why Rupert Wants Lachlan biocide now moral support. When Lachlan Arrives in London? He finds out why his dad called him. Rupert's trying to close a major deal. It's a merger and Lachlan is at his side for hours studying rupert as he negotiates with a small army of lawyers. It's like Rupert showing him. If you want to run the business one day this is what it takes. But something's off. Rupert SEEMS HAGGARD AND DEPRESSED. Lachlan's never seen this before what he doesn't know because Rupert never tells him. Is that right now? The whole Murdoch Empire hangs in the Balance News Corp is drowning in debt. If this merger doesn't go through Rupert's done for the meeting finally breaks up at one in the morning and Lachlan Rupert Walk Home Together as Lachlan and Rupert make their way down Fleet Street and through the Empty City. Lachlan has this sudden desire to put his arms around his dad. That's what he later tells the New York Times. He wants to hold him up shoulder some of the burden instead. They just keep walking. It's kind of symbolic Lachlan has seen firsthand the burden of running the family business and he wants to carry the.

But it's not enough.

He actually hates Hollywood but he knows. That's where the power is and by owning one of the biggest movie studios in the world. I mean this is the studio that put out the star wars movies. It really cements his status as not just a newspaper man. But a media mogul. Rupert isn't just making money he's defining the eighties from politics to pop culture in nineteen thousand nine hundred six. He launches the Fox Broadcasting Network back. Then there were basically three TV networks. Abc NBC and CBS. And they were all pretty respectable. There hasn't been a new national broadcast station.

Abc CBS and NBC. Were focusing on the thirty five and older crowd Fox goes with a different strategy and it gets huge ratings with shows like nine. Oh two one. Oh Melrose place in living color and the X. files so that means that we are Rupert Murdoch's target audience. We watched at least half of those sadly we are and then they make an even bolder move some might even call it. A coup rupert grabs the right stare. Nfl Games from CBS. Fox's had a phenomenal growth in the last two years and then in nineteen ninety-six Rupert launches the First Twenty Four Hour Cable News Network to compete with CNN which has been the only game in town. It's called Fox News and it's going to become the most powerful weapon in his empire and the most profitable. It's also going to tear his family apart. Yeah where are Rupert's Kiddos in all of this? Who'S THE SMART ONE? Who's the cute one? Who's the rubble while it's not the Breakfast Club? And the kids are all watching how their data operates as empire watching and learning Brooke.

Liz Lachlan and James are all teenagers. Everyday they gather around the kitchen table in their home a three floor. Fifth Avenue penthouse overlooking Central Park. All the kids want only one thing dinner. We're hungry Daddy. Begnaud to impress their father and the way to impress. Rupert is through newspapers okay. I'm trying to imagine how you'd impress someone through newspapers. Let's try okay. All play Ruber with amazing accent and you play the kids. Why do you get to play Rupert? Because I'm the Baas okay so true story. Let me set the scene each night after dinner. I spread out the paper and start firing off questions. How big are the headlines? Why do they choose this photo? How would you make everything better? Snappier more eye catching more profitable. Okay Risha your Liz. You're smart confident. A little cutthroat go. I recommend we all the reporters salaries and use the savings to pay for full color photos. Good answer the not good enough Lachlan. What about you? Laughlin is daddy's favorite a sort of a kiss up always eager to impress. How would you make this paper? Bigger better bolder. Well Dad. I think you've already done everything you've already done is already so brilliant. It's just perfect already. Young there is always room for improvement. James What do you think you'll the youngest? Try to say something original here for once. What if we forget about newspapers and start building rockets wrong? This is not fun while they think it is or at least they rise to the occasion. Their father's approval is at stake. Sounds familiar and Rupert. Loves to see the kids compete especially when it comes to imagining the future of the empire. It's like Rupert is running a full-time live in. Newspaper internship out of his kitchen and he talks his kids about all of it. The deals he's making the acquisitions and mergers and the hostile takeovers be honest. Do you know what a hostile takeover is? No not really but it sounds a very eighties. So I'm imagining a tray. Full of coke and lots of Manley Bravado. Bilo sell high cuts. Everyone's wages as they grow up. They're basically being groomed by debt in each one of them takes it in a completely different way. It's pretty fascinating lake. Take Liz for example. She's the oldest except for poor pru out of the picture so it doesn't count but Liz is the first born to Anna and Rupert. She's also smartest. I was going to say the only girl which means smartest actually yes. I like what you're doing. I think all the Murdoch kids are convinced. They're the smartest but live is different from her brothers. Are you about to give me a biology lesson? Now gross what I mean is. She's done more to look the part of mogul in waiting. She works hard on her resume. She goes off to Vassar College in nineteen eighty six and falls in with a right crowd. Her friends are beautiful and.
"rupert" Discussed on Even the Rich
"The winner by far. They'll be married for more than thirty years. It's got to help. The Anna loves newspapers just like Rupert. Plus she's a total babe blonde tall and slim with perfect posture and lots of poise prudence. That's Robert's daughter. From his first marriage she goes to live with them for a while until Anna becomes pregnant and decides. She's not exactly in the mood to deal with a nine year old stepdaughter should. That's harsh. Yeah so is this. Where the Crazy Murdoch sibling? Drama starts not quite Rupert Anna. Pretty much forget about Pru. She's out of the picture. Okay that's sad poor little PRU. She's only nine. Yeah in one interview. Rupert will literally forget to mention her name when he talks about his kids. Wow so that is yes any. Yeah so Rupert Anna have three kids together. Elizabeth's the oldest everyone calls her Liz. Then Lachlan who becomes rupert's favorite you know Firstborn Son Hall that Plus Lachlan has a ton in common with his dad and then there's james youngest he's always trying to prove himself but there's one thing that unites them all their ambitious just like their dad even from a young age. There's competition I bet instead of whoopee cushions they put lake rusty nails. On each other's chairs chem chairs made out of gold. James is always served last at family meals. Because he's the youngest. This drives him nuts of course and he's always trying to switch around the dishes and the chairs to jump ahead of his siblings. Does that work? I doubt it but hey he's got to try and rupert loves the competition when the kids are little. He encourages them to compete at skiing and at charades giving them clues in Latin heating making them compete will bring out the best in all of them. So it's survival of the fittest in the least fun way. Latin Cherie and it pretty much works. Lachlan's a hard worker. Just like his dad was when he's thirteen. He gets a job as a printer's apprentice cleaning all the oil and grease off the presses and he loves it or at least I imagine he convinced himself he loves it and when he's older. Lachlan spends his summer vacations backed down in Australia working as a jackaroo to earn extra money okay. I'm sorry but you know I'm going to ask. A JACKAROO is basically an Australian cowboy but instead of horses they ride kangaroos nailed it and the rest of the year. Lachlan spends as much time as he can working on the family ranch to save up to buy a motorcycle. I'm surprised Rupert Murdoch's Sun has to save up to buy anything. Yeah for rich kids. The Murdoch's really aren't that spoiled. One of Liz's childhood friends says Liz was always asking to borrow five dollars. Could you imagine a rich kid like Murdoch coming up for five bucks? I'd be like I'm paying my rent in tears. Like what do you want? It's crazy but of course they do live in a gorgeous penthouse apartment and go to a fancy private schools but also wants them to get used to working hard and being tough during this time. Richard is making his name as one of the leading newspaper men in Australia and England. Probably the biggest gun in his arsenal is a paper. Called the news of the world's right the sleazy British tabloid while Yes. It was a tabloid when Rupert. But it wasn't nearly as sleazy until he got his hands on it. It's nine hundred. Sixty eight and a fancy tea room in Mayfair one of the most expensive neighborhoods in London. Ooh Very Posh Andras there. See a very posh guy. Sir William Carr and his wife Lady Car Sir. William's the owner of news of the world. Did I mention? The nickname of the paper is screws of the world. That doesn't sound very pugh room appropriate but Sir William's still considers himself a gentleman and he wants to sell his paper to another gentleman. Someone classy well Brad. And preferrably English not a rube from Australia. Well Rupert puts on the full fancy English. Gentlemen Act for them quite right Tallyho. Good Show No. Rupert sips his tea from China Teacup Pinky out. Naturally he's got the cars eating out of his hand. It helps that he makes them a promise if they sell him. Forty percent stake in the company. He'll settle for being the managing director and leave the car family with the rest of the stock. Sir William can even stay on as chairman. It works it. Does he soon? The proud owner of forty percent of screws of the world's and six months later he goes back on his word right. Oh he pushes out Sir William who was old and frail anyway so it took only gentlest of shoves and then he takes over. So what's his plan? Now that he's one hundred percent owner he wants to make the paper ten times sleazy or UC Rupert's got very specific vision when he buys a tabloid he strips. Away all the boring stuff like the artsy culture stuff and all the boring facts and figures and he makes it exciting. An eye-catching Dahmer. Let's just say when he bought the TV guide he said it was thought too cerebral. The Way He sees it. Is that the working stiffs. Don't want to sit down after a hard day at the factory and read about tax policy. They want juicy celebrity gossip and grisly crime stories and top ladies. Well I gotta say rather read about Celebrity hookups and tax reform. Okay what about this extra extra chanceless? Flat is vice. Den with some stream pictures a lady in black lingerie force okay. That really gets my attention. Or how about this? Read all about it toll. Ribas archer pays off vice girl. I've no idea what that means but it sounds bad. Okay Lenoir Child Sex Ring Stars with the sub head it was like a VIP club for Pervert Okay Gross. That's awful awful but eyecatching. This is the Rupert Method. And it makes him a fortune and before long. He's ready to take his brand of tabloid journalism to America in one thousand. Nine hundred seventy six when his kids are all still little? Rupert MOVES THE FAMILY MINUS PRUDENCE. God He forgot her he moves them to New York City. Has Rupert Murdoch? Just bought the New York Post.

"rupert" Discussed on Even the Rich
"From wondering. I'm Brooke Stiffen and I- Marissa's could Moore William and this is even the rich where we bring you absolutely true and absolutely shocking stories about the greatest family dynasties the world has ever seen. It's a show about power how you get it and how you keep in and what happens when it goes to your head. It's also about how the rich are like us because even the rich loving and cry and dream and hope and by crap on video conference call triggered the story of Rupert Murdoch and his children sounds like it was lifted out of Shakespeare. You hit me with Alexander the great now. You're talking Shakespeare. You're getting a whole day of school in today but seriously though a powerful aging king children vying for his throne even a wicked stepmother or two. It's all real and it's all happening today right now and the most surprising part of the story is that it affects even ordinary non rich people. Like you and me speak for yourself. I just bought to Brad Pitt. Loafs at target. Oh Wow if you were really rich. Somebody wouldn't be making the bread for you. So that's terrible argument. This is more than just a story about one. Very Rich Guy. And his audacious business deals and messy love life and cutthroat family drama. But it's got all of that right. Oh of course. But it also really is Shakespearean. He's got a multibillion dollar media kingdom at stake the Murdochs have owned everything from the Wall Street Journal to the Simpsons so basically. There's not a David goes by that. All of us are not reading or watching something that this guy owns. You got it. It's not just that rupert is rich. It's that he's powerful. Being air to the Murdoch thrown just might mean you get to pick the next prime minister of England or President of the United States or the next reality TV star or the next reality TV star who becomes president of the United States. This is a four part series on the real life succession. And this is episode one rupert. So let's rewind a little bit back to July Fifteenth Nineteen Sixty Four. Rupert Murdoch is thirty three years old. He's not exactly handsome. He's got a Pudgy face and a receding hairline but there is something about him. He's always wearing these. Well Taylor dark suits. And when he smirks which he does a lot. He looks confident. He's already been working in the newspaper business for years at this point. I as an intern and then as an editor but today is different. He's about to publish the first edition of his own newspaper one. He created all by himself on his own terms in the country where he was born and grew up. It's called the Australian and it's the first national newspaper that Australia has ever had. Not the most creative name is it. He should have called it. Something like the kangaroo time I love it I mean he ends up calling his whole Empire News Corp which sounds like a fake business from a superhero movie. I mean superhero movies. Their names are so based Batman is literally a man. Who's a bad yes? Superman is a man who super sparkling that really would fit in a superhero movie. Rupert may be the owner. But he's not afraid to get dirty literally. His fingers are always smudged. He has ink stains all over his clothes. Good thing you were such dark soothes Ashley. And today he's rushing around the office shouting at workers about the little details that will make his paper perfect. Fix that photo. Make that headline bigger. Get me a picture spot man basically. It's that Old Times newspaper thing so I imagine he's chewing on cigars for all this after he puts his first issued a bed late that night. Rupert has a drink with his editor. It's finally quiet. Just the two of them and rupert must be feeling a little sentimental because he tells the editor well. I've got where I am by some pretty tough pretty larrikin methods. What the heck does Larrikin me? It's Australian Slang. It means like daring an unconventional. I cannot believe that after four episodes of subjecting all of our listeners to are amazing yeah we are now going to make them listen to Australian Woods. Yeah it's not GonNa get better guys so rupert says now what I wanted to do. I want to be able to produce the newspaper that my father would have been proud of. His Dad is like this Macho Newspaperman. Sir Keith Murdoch. He got his start as a war correspondent during World War. One after that Sir. Keith took over to local Australian newspapers and became the country's most influential journalists. So let me guess. Rupert was never good enough for Daddy. Exactly major daddy issues and the more needy. Rupert was about trying to get his dad's attention to him. The more sir. Keith got annoyed okay. So where's his mom in all of this? Oh she's tough to her name is Dame Elisabeth Murdoch. She's a very big deal in Australia. Her family is like the Australian Kennedy's and she's a force she strict and religious and she used to make rupert sleep outside in hot when he was a kid too often. Him Look like backyard. Camping only not fun and not optional right but she is big into family even though she makes her family sleep outside. She Teaches Rupert. The importance of taking care of family which pro tip. It's easier if they're in the house with you so newspapers from Dad Family I from Ah yes and those are two of the three ingredients. That will drive Rupert Murdoch. His whole life. Okay what's the third one an obsession with power it all starts? When Rupert's ten years old his parents send him off to a fancy boarding school and he hates it. Did they look at his handwriting? Get into that school. We should stay focused. All the other kids make fun of him for having a dad who works for a newspaper instead of. I don't know doing whatever. Australian ARISTOCRATS DO INSERT KANGAROO hunting joke here anyway. The whole experience puts a big chip on shoulder and it never goes away and then after boarding school. He goes to Oxford more fancy people with privileged background. Rupert does well there except he still gets treated like a country. Bumpkin from Australia takes a lot to impress people at Oxford. When I was in college I was friends with a guy whose dad owned a Taco Bell Franchisee and people treated that kid like royalty. I don't blame them. My hometown didn't have a TACO bell forever. I'd be like Oh my God. You're hoped out only had a wall bar. They did and the whole town through parade in that game so you can imagine anyway while Rupert is Oxford. Just twenty one years old. Rupert's father dies Rupert heads home to Australia to take over his dad's to newspapers and he's in for a pretty big surprise. Turns OUT HIS DAD died? Broke and get this literally the day after Sir Keith. Dies before Rupert's plane has even Landis he business rivals go into the dad man's office and Jackhammer has safe open. What I can't hear you okay. Okay Okay Guys. We got it. These rivals are pretty sure that Keith secretly transferred his shares in two newspapers over to a trust controlled by rupert and his MOM. Now they're trying to find and possibly destroy the documents that prove it. It's all part of a ploy to screw rupert out of what is rightfully his with a Jackhammer. That's some Guy Ritchie Shit. Rupert does inherit has dad's shares. But that doesn't stop his rivals. They try to force him to sell and the Murdoch family finances are such a mess. That Rupert has no choice so he gives up one of his papers but he vows he is never ever going to get screwed out of. What's his again. This is like his super villain origin. Story really is he comes away from it. Convinced that if you don't own everything yourself you're a sucker. At least Rupert gets to keep the other paper. It's called news of Adelaide and he gets to work. Rupert's a workaholic like US. Are we shall. We're in our pajamas. Okay these are weird nine okay. Well unlike us he has no hobbies no other interests but he does manage to find a woman to marry the future. I X one of Rupert Murdoch. You Betcha they have one daughter together named prudence or proof for short but then one night rupert in his office working late like always chomping on a cigar and burning the midnight oil and in walks a pretty young journalist asking if she can interview him. I see where this is going. Her name is Anna. Torp Rupert's thirty six years old. Anna is eighteen gross and before long. Anna is wife number two. And how long did they last? She's actually.
"rupert" Discussed on Even the Rich
"A quick note. This episode is Profane as Hell Brook. Okay Sorry Arista. I want you to picture yacht. Floating in the Caribbean Sea in the middle of the night and not just any hot. This one's huge one hundred and forty feet long. One hundred and forty is longer than the train of Princess. Diana's wedding dress the toy measure everything. Yes a hundred and forty feet is like the length of four city buses. The yacht has cost them racing gear a swimming pool and a rock climbing wall. It even has a fancy name SURATA. Is that a spice. No it's the name for the giants fears that Alexander. The Greats Army used in battle considering I'm sitting in isolation in my PJ's and basically haven't left my house in a month. I'm really enjoying this picture or painting. So who am I on this yacht with? Well I gave you a hint. This is named for something having to do with the world conqueror Alexander the Great Okay. So it's someone who dreams of taking over the world and he's rich. I wish that narrowed it down more. So Alexander came pretty close in his day. But you could argue the guy on this yacht has come even closer Rupert Murdoch Good old rupert. You know who Rupert Murdoch is. Of course I do. He owns like every TV station and newspaper from here to Australia. Yeah and he did it without using a single spear that we know of Rupert's weapon of choice is the media newspapers and television networks and movie studios so at this point in the story. It's two thousand eighteen. He's eighty six years old. He controls an empire worth more than nineteen dollars and he's on his giant yacht. Actually the yacht belongs to Rupert Son. Lachlan but rupert barring it for a little vacation in the middle of the night Rupert Gets Up to go pee. The boats probably swaying beneath him as he walks through the dark cabin half asleep when suddenly he falls hard now. This modern Alexander. One of the most powerful influential people in the world is lying on the floor with broken vertebrae and a spinal hematoma oof. I don't know exactly what a spinal Hematoma is. But it sounds really pains. Yeah and not just that at his age. It could be fatal. Rupert's wife Jerry. Hall finds him lying on the ground. Wait I felt Jerry Hall was married to Mick Jagger. Yes she was but now. She's the fourth Mrs Rupert Murdoch. Wow another wife if you have to be the fourth person. He's probably not that great. You know while you had big jagger now. You've got Rupert Murdoch. I don't I truly don't know if that's leveling up or levelling down or just staying the same. It's truly hard to tell heartland soda once. Well at least she's not quite. He still has more than twenty years on her anyway. Jerry finds him on the boat lying on the floor. She panics and calls for help. He's airlifted off the yacht to a hospital in Los Angeles and one of the first things. Jerry does is called the four oldest kids all of them are from previous marriages. There's Lachlan James. Dobies SNEEZY grumpy close. There's Lachlan James Elizabeth and prudence. And then he's got to younger children to Jerry tells the kids to get to the hospital asap because she's worried though. Dad might not make it. But Rupert does make it alert region holy crap this is basically the plot of succession succession actually started out based on Rupert Murdoch and his four adult kids then they turned it into a fictional version. Because I thought it'd be more fun that way and because they don't WanNa get sued but the true story of the Murdoch family is crazy enough as it is you've got this ego maniacal dad siblings stabbing each other in the back and this looming question. Who's going to inherit RUPERT'S NINETEEN BILLION DOLLAR EMPIRE? I mean the guy's eighty six years old. I assume they have a succession there. And you'd think so but his kids have spent basically their entire lives fighting to inherit Rupert's empire and it's been a roller coaster of WHO's up. Who's down. Who's in without so now with Rupert? On his maybe deathbed there's a battle heating up for who will take over when his kids arrive in Los Angeles and they gather around their dad's hospital bed. They all have very different ideas about what they would do with all that power. So just how does one man go from owning a small newspaper in Australia to running the most influential media company in the world's and how does that guy still not have a plan? For what comes after him at eighty six years old. That's a great question. Because the infighting in the Murdoch clan has been going on for years maybe it would have been less gruesome if they brought up the giant spears.

Yeah no I haven't had chance to to Texan Zimba. This is such a quick trip. I probably wouldn't see him but it's always great department timmy's I gave him the heads up. Just see you know. You did so he might. He might combine. He might also be on. Your leg of your behavior can give me the way the way but it is fun to see all all of you guys because I have like I've been talking to you guys probably not only some. I didn't talk to you from the beginning but for about ten years I've been seen yes and it's it's interesting like I have my own own like very specific relationships with and maybe Dannon and Tom Most because in the states show I see them the most and I feel like you were the `Nigma for a while I didn't know if I could crack rubers I wasn't you. Were generally a little bit more soft-spoken yeah harder harder nut to a crack gap. But now I've gotten we've done some sketches. Now we've had you performance at that. was that was that was literally here. Yeah so I feel you like. We're now between that and today's conversation feel like I'm going to have the DNA to clone me my own. Yeah I think that could very I. I Will Rupert Yeah. I don't know if you agree with that. I think this is enough. It was a was a cathartic to play at share. And when you were here last time was that a wasn't a way it was kind of a I mean this is something that's only let me for a long. I mean happened ten minutes left. And so on servicers La you a chair. I used to back in the day. used to play along along with it talk about now now every night studying so you can get everything right. You're exactly it's the strangest thing I don't and see the resemblance. No my sorry surface. It's very lehrer. We're we have the same color hair. Yeah basically days. But he's great and I. ooh We did a video together right and yeah is this. How many autographed Ed Sheeran photos? What is are there with your signature on it running relief you yeah? I've I've signed a albums. VINYLS are probably the most collectible. The error are autograph. Is I mean who wants just a boring ensure knowledge now. Last night I was this guy had like guitar kind of take. God's thinking way to say this very very Rupa thing the guitar but I mean I outta mind here in town talking about this great new series that I got a chance to talk to you guys a little while back called servant. It's apple to the apple. TV plus what we called hold. Yes the plus. It's hard to get plus things plus now here but I really did this. Show man. It's from Bob. Tony Baz Gallup writers. We wrote all ten episodes. I believe in my channel on love that guy as press tours. Go though Oh you you're so you've done the biggest possible press doors in your life show so when you do something like this is it like this cakewalk. Like I can do a couple of days of this because I've done tours hours before I think he kind of develop the tools for coping with some elaides. It's a it's an unusual thing talking about yourself. That kind of amount of time is kind of exhausting exhausting but this is different this different challenges because as with potter kind of new to the book there's no boilers really allow that this is proving. Talk about our giving everything away. So it's a challenge. It's great where were you when you guys were you media train in quote unquote like was there like like. How do you train like ten or eleven year? Old Kid to talk to the media now I mean there was no training. We just just they just pretty much. But what about the great. They kind of nervous the best they could and it was. Yeah I mean it was just a gradual process of just kind love more exposed to the movie kind of go familiar with this world. What's yeah which is still? It's I still find it. Challenging Ching natural actor talk about oneself as much as made to do and to know that every single off the cuff comment can hear dissect A. I'm learning that today wall today. I mean you any the pickup on China's things And Yeah there's so much still much interest in films it kind of blows my mind is I'm still like yeah redan talking to somebody who's like just they. These these movies mean so much has very deep kind of connection to the shelter. Dennis Taliban they've really profoundly hold it quite questions and they're perennials. Sales to the next general like every generation is going to watch these movies. You've made those those films that are just GonNa like I'm sure you've at some point. Maybe come to peace with that that it's not like on five years people are just GonNa stop talking to you. I mean there are always going to. Yeah it's a yeah and I'm completely go. I don't WanNa the shy away from talking about it. It's a big pot by ten plus years of your life right pretty much. So let's talk a little bit about this show so this is what. What's the main reason reason to to hop on board? The is a night as of the writing is just spending some time in Philly. All of those things. Yeah it was. Yeah I've always it might am nine. He's been some of my thing is just a genius storyteller and he always add some sort of magic to everything he does the thing and and compare that with great writing these scripts were half hours while they addictive you kind of burn through rhythm and you just want more kind of cliffhangers to like each of the I can watch all of them yet poor but they all kind of like leave you anymore. I know night wants wants people to binge it. Yeah I think I think there's some good arguments for kind of restraint. Yeah because it's I mean. I think three's already pretty good amount to digest and like a heavy subject matter. It's very deeply upsetting and disturbing an unimaginable. Tutuila Taller people. I think yeah you need to have it. Has It gives you room to have these discussions and it will kind of cruise compensation thing. What would you do put yourself in? Yes in that I. It's it's it's an interesting interesting concept so yes it just to give the very bare bones in the world because this is the kind of thing we don't we don't need to get into the nitty gritty kind of sells itself. So if you know nights aesthetic vibe you've kind of got a beat on what we're dealing with but basically about a couple put by toby kebble more. Ambrose is who are dealing with a loss and they've got a nanny that comes into the fray who's a little bit mysterious what's up with her and then we got darrelle brother Julian. That's you refresh your memory. Original breath of fresh air is the wrong word but you bring a different current energy from Schumer yes green which is which is fun. Because I mean you say it's dark and sears and definitely is but like a lot of nights stuff it also has kind of a a black comedic sued. Yeah I think that's really important. I think when you especially when you tackling these kind of big ideas and conch on a very human thing. I think when you're in darkest times you always kind of look for the the gallows humor. Yeah and I always appeal to me the dark side of humor the kind of uncomfortable the law. You don't know you shouldn't be laughing but other two kinds of I mean not to say like I'm the one like laughing hysterically in the corner of a funeral but like that that is I don't know about you. That is is my humor as a coping mechanism. Yeah I think we'd come widen reconsider. That and I think that's something. That's great about these scripts. It's in there I mean it's it's we're talking about despicable things and it's and it's an. It's an awful tragedy but it's with this. This adult is something just hilarious. I mean it's a horrible thing to be near and I did. Like touching base unites the kid that's is kind of taken up the space in the family the the SHAWL. That's should dorothy kind of goes into these. She she's mourning the loss but she's she's she's has this delusion that we've this doll is a form of therapy. She believes this is her son. And it's alive and so you guys got it all. You didn't feel so good Ni- it's very. It's an unsettling thing in some way. Do you want to look after. Because it's it's a bad so baby and it's it feels like a bit and you have to support the head when you hold it. It's waited in such a way but it's just I mean you look into the eyes of that thing it's like looking into the eyes of a what is it like that is it's pure hell but it's it's it's it's an interesting thing to have. It's yeah I mean the hat just being in the house as well which is basically almost the entire setting of the show we. We never leave the house. Well Julie and actually leads how we never really actually house with him. It's always vira portal. facetime right yeah but yeah. We're we're in the house and the question foe beacon. It's and even being on say if you a huge sense of relief to step out. It's very thick atmosphere. So did you get all the scripts before you do this one barge movie essentially. Yeah we did we would. Currently we had a say. We didn't get what we have. I think we have up to eight nearly there which is nearly there. I think there was something night. We kind of kept it kind of a bill little charlotte mystery and then and we didn't. We didn't get the last two scripts until I think a few days before Sh- before she them so there was always this mystery. It's quite helpful. I think not to everything good to know you need to do you. So do you subscribe to like as an actor. Would you rather play a character. That's pretty close to you or do you want to do the guy. That's a one eighty because famously talked about like Ron over the years of like how you guys kind of conflicted by the kind of the same person and Julian is safe to say is pretty different than you. Big and Brash Shore You know adjectives. I would assigned to you. Yeah absolutely he's yeah I mean he's he's not in any way he's this books in the financial district. He's very brash. He's the guy you'd want in a crisis right because he's going to quite clear headed edited pragmatic. He's always two steps ahead of you. He knows Guy Soya but yeah it's it's yeah I mean it's not that I do enjoy playing characters the further furtherest away from me but I think naturally there's always even every character you pleasure and it's kind of is is a challenge sometimes to kind of keep a sense of that but still right for move yourself entirely and this is this is. I'm sure there's been a talking point in the in the press store but this is the first American viewpoint. I Yeah Yeah Yeah So. That's Kinda surprising. I mean you'd be a bit has happened. Is that by you. Hate are people are scared of the sex. Let's go to the city so long. I know it's never really come up. I mean I I did a pilot years ago. Okay it was that Clyde was that the yes yeah yeah that right. It was yeah it was kind of like this GRECO SIA pilot. It was really funny. His great prominence. Yeah she experienced enduring accent an American accent those have dumb British regional accents to us. It's all it's like a British accent. Yeah Yeah but no yeah. It's it's challenging. I think as I mean with that accent is always kind of. It's always in the because it's so much the TV shows even as a kid. You always kind of. I used to play in like right American accent so it's yeah it's but it's the so many nuances that you don't realize realize until you had a voice every voice coach got and it's just amazing kind of technical side of it like what your tongue right. What your tongue is when you? They'll quit we might say it's an incredible is doing something completely different to how I'm talking now right. So it's yeah. I kind of enjoy that sort of kind of technical. Do you ever okay. Because you're one of the more recognizable human beings on the planet. So do you ever when you're on the public adopted different voice to try to go in cognitive do you have. Do you have a series of the skies and voices that you can assume when you don't WanNa be recognized. I've never thought about my voice is particularly recommended it contributes if not maybe the. Yeah I know you're saying no I. I wear a CAP I. My main goal is to hide the closet. See like thirty thousands of recaps go through different phases as well a different stage there was a beanie. There was the top hat phase. which just more which is? Mistaken retrospect. Yes yeah that Emory workout the Monaco. No never is that Mr monopoly confusing but yeah no. I've never really been wanted to completely hide from. Its you found. That's the best attitude is to just make make normalize it on your part and maybe that makes normal for other people absolutely. Yeah and it's something that is kind of gradually progressive like start happening when I was eleven. So you do kind of adapt to it and I call rumbelow before Ray kemalist..

"rupert" Discussed on Curiosity Daily
"Learn why prince Rupert's drop is both super fragile and virtually unbreakable. Why researchers think newborn babies are a lot smarter than they look and why earth's core is younger than its surface. Let's set aside some curiosity on the award winning curiosity daily. Would you believe that there's an object that's both nearly unbreakable, and so fragile that it shatters instantly? Well, believe it is paradoxical object is a piece of glass known as a prince Rupert's drop. I just found out that destined the guy from smarter every day has named his cat prince Rupert. And I think that's a perfect name for a cat. Because if you touch one end, you're fine, if you touch the other end all hell breaks loose. That's the most cat person thing you've ever said on the show. It's perfect. Kept people understand enjoy that piece of prince Rupert's, trivia, cats people. Well, prince Rupert's drop is said to have been named after the nephew of king. Charles the first who was able to bring the drops to England in sixteen sixty but they'd been around for a really long time before then possibly as far back as Roman times. And prince Rupert's drop is super simple to make literally you just drip molten glass into super cold water. You end up with a teardrop shaped piece of glass that's nearly impossible to break at one end. And really fragile on the other end it's because when glass hits water the outside layers cool really quickly while the inside stays molten. The effect of thermal expansion makes liquids expand when they're hot and contract as they call. That means the molten interior is trying to expand at the same time as the cool outer layers contracting inward while the whole thing. Crystallizes these equal pushing and pulling forces build up in one long chain that stretches from the head of the drop to the tail and once the drop cools off it's locked into the state of high tension. Here's how the Royal. Society of London describes it quote, the head withstands hammering on an anvil or squeezing in vice in denting its steel jaws without fracture, yet breaking the tail with finger pressure caused the whole thing to explode into powder, unquote. Prince Rupert's drop is kind of like an arch it's incredibly strong in one piece. But if any part of it is broken, the whole thing fails, you can see a video of it. Failing spectacularly in an explosion of fine glass. Shards in our full right up on curiosity dot com and on the curiosity app for Android, and I o s new research suggests that newborn babies are waste martyr than they seem maybe some mix alleged of made a song called baby got brain. And they've got an itty bitty waist at a round thing in your face. Right. Like their babies the big ground heads. I don't know. Any of the words. That's all. I know all the words to do. Yeah. It was the not cool kid in eighth grade dances. Is it just didn't know all the words? It's not too late. It's not too late. Isn't it? It's worth it's worth studying up on is it how about we just go to karaoke, and you can sing the song. Yeah. We still I still have not gone to karaoke with you you've been threatening. No curiosity office has gone to karaoke at least twice and I keep finding ways to avoid it carry out. Really? Yeah. Fine. I'll go someday maybe possibly well. Maybe if you brought a newborn baby to karaoke. That's like an awful idea. That's not a good idea that one should do that. Well from babies to karaoke. We should probably get back on track and weight back to babies and baby science you. It's actually pretty hard to study newborns since they can't tell you what they're thinking or point or really do anything, but lay there and make sure there is no way you're getting a full night's sleep tonight. But writing for the guardian science journalist Angeles Sammy recently explained some clever new study techniques new methods analyze wear an infant's looks and how they respond to stimuli like images on a screen and E G machines can read their brain activity and there have been some surprising results. Would you believe your baby understands some basic physics? Well, looking time. Studies have shown that babies stare longer at actions that betray the laws of physics like a toy car that looks like it's moving through a solid wall. That implies that they think it's weird. When those universal rules are broken other research has shown babies looking longer at a cartoon..

Her support, let at Jack know about the case because Rupert Kennecott into his main Twitter account, but he is tweeting from at Rupert's kids and Eric, I have a collection of Rupert tweets, so I think that you are pretty much a standout at this game now, I think so. I feel feel confident and I was also thinking maybe we should do like sort of a behind the scenes expose about his account and how he got locked out. And I think the man for the job might be the great ghoulish like great, but on detective captain report back to see what he can get done with good old, Jack, and Twitter, and this resolved once and for all is is becoming a national crisis. The long story short is that he lost the password. I think that that's that's the extent of it. I don't think that there was any foul play here boy with game play like that. Rob. Only. It's hearkens back to any built the underwater shelter or whatever that drowns his people, all they were sleeping. Brute force than brain. Right, right.

Is there any white hat hackers out there that could hack Rupert Twitter account and then get him back in that would also be of help? Yes. Benevolent you mister robot? Possibly? Yes. Okay. So Eric, how many fake Rupert tweets or how many real Rupert tweets do you want to have in there with the fake Rupert tweet. Oh, let's go with three three. Okay. So let me narrow down the field.
