Murrow of CBS Edward R. Murrow is one of the people primarily responsible for bringing communist it's two Columbia teachers college to begin inserting all of these destructive America narratives into our universities he was responsible for bringing those people over and he worked with a guy named Laurence Duggan whose son was an actual Soviet agent and he was friends with his son and he became a news anchor for CBS that's just one example there are many many trusted a man in America yeah right right he he gave the Vietnam War at eight a story that was a hundred and eighty degrees from what the truth was riled tell your doctor about with Walter Cronkite yeah that young people don't know who has what we member we only had three major networks in this country now I can tell you let me say some about yeah because the networks are required by FCC regulation as part of their contract to provide unbiased news nobody has ever called him that if I were in a position to do so I would pull their FCC licenses tomorrow and tell them that they better straighten out their newsrooms and start reporting what's going on because they should be challenged in the courts right absolutely be challenged because they have been really but they have such power and such influence and Americans have to get a constitutional public there operates through elections has to be given the facts at what's happened instead is they've been given the left narrative for sixty eighty years in World War two The New York Times was engaged in treason it was exposing things mark Levin's book yeah I mean it's just stunning it's stunning when CNN first started Ted Turner used to go on a show and he would bring some five Soviet KGB agents on the show with him had a first among them was Georgy Arbatov who is the head of member for US and Canada old KGB agent they would talk down president Reagan they would just sit there and terror attacks president right that was C.

How Jessi Hempel Went from Poet to Podcast Host
"Let's start at the beginning. I as I said you've had an extraordinary career as a journalist but I'd love to know how you ought the writing bog were you. You know. Extremely curious a child yeah. It was extremely curious as a child but I also just was always a writer just from the beginning of time I was a writer I wanted to grow up and write poetry and science fiction and I went to college and I got a degree in poetry and remember coming out of college in going into the Barnes and noble which was Believe it or not the big corporate media of bookstores back then. Because that's how old I am and I looked in the big book of First Year. Salary is and I looked up poet. Remember 'cause I was with a friend and that friend was a nurse and she looked up nursing. It said fifty thousand dollars a year and she thought sweet. I'm set and I looked. Poyton said twelve dollars a year. Yeah and I knew I could not survive on twelve dollars a year and I was going to have to take the writing and do something with it. That was going to help me pay the rent. And that's really how I got turned in the direction of journalism. My mother is going to enjoy this because she is a poet and she can vouch. that You can't really make a living which is a shame. Do you still write poetry You know I don't. I still read a lot of poetry. I feel like my work is colored by the early work. I did around the construction of language but no I don't like a lot of poetry. I hope your mom's still. She does your mom she does. She doesn't she's she's published books and she was actually a poem. I was in a textbook at my arrival. High School so She's once in prizes and things like that. That's the only time you really make any money. So so when you made this move did you. What was your first job? Not Business Week somewhere else. No so I did a lot of different things in my early twenty S I. I ended up going to graduate school at Berkeley for Journalism. Had A great program and I came out when I was about twenty eight and at first I wanted to be a foreign correspondent and I went to Hong Kong and I did some writing for time time Asia and then I discovered business and I discovered business journalism and I got extremely passionate about it because I quickly I learned that if you want to understand how the world is working and you understand how business works he will. You will do a lot better at understanding how everything else worked. And so I went to Business Week and while I was at business. Week I met a very young mark Zuckerberg. Wow and that is really the start of how I started. Writing about technology I started writing about social networking in two thousand four and two thousand five. So we're you just assigned to detail you gotta go talk to the sky or like. How did that all happen? And what was he like Well so I'm embarrassed to tell you this because it's not gonNa make me out to sound like the smartest lady in the room by. I was a huge user of friendster and Earl Ya Ya Ya Ma and mice space and I thought that my space was really innovative. Was just something that I hadn't seen before in two thousand five at that time. Most of my colleagues were much older than me and none of them were actually using services like this and so I asked well. Can I write a little story about my space? And my editors honestly probably at the time just to give me something that was a passion project so I would keep doing the sort of grunt work that I was doing as an intern. Then said sure you can write a story about my space and I did. And then Rupert Murdoch did me a solid and paid five hundred and eighty million dollars for it and everybody looked up and it was my goodness. That must be a business. Didn't Jesse wouldn't you going to write something on that? And we quickly pulled out that story and made a bigger that became my first sort of big story and it was called the mice base generation. And why that slightly embarrassing is because as part of the big story on my space. I made a phone call to this other website that no one was paying attention to call facebook And of course my bet at that point that facebook was just you know the boring version of my space. Did you say something like that in the story? I don't think that of course many many more stories later I did. I chronicled really the rise of facebook in the rise of all of those Social software companies that served to connect to each other so that we could talk to each other on the web. The way that we didn't have you continued to talk to mark Zuckerberg over the years about how things have progressed willow. In a reporting capacity I continued to report on facebook during my time in the profession up until I guess the last big story I did on. Facebook was in probably twenty sixteen and a haven't spoken to him at all in the last couple of years so then of course we know that you go to Fortune I fortune. I and Ben Wired to have that right. Yeah so yep that's right. So as a writer I went from BusinessWeek to Fortune. I spent a lot of years at fortune. Had A great time there on really learned the craft and then I went to wired and I was at wired for the five years really until I came here to Lincoln. How fulfilled were you by that work? Oh Gosh that's a doesn't the truth. Is that the thing that mattered to me. Most was to become a better writer and better storyteller and become better at telling other people story so K. Sky I feel like it is almost more than a job is calling for me. I love the the whole process of figuring out how to tell a story and I love the trust that someone else puts in you when they invite you to tell them their story and really most of the time that I was a writer writing for magazines. I have been able to do that But you know sky as well as I know that that industry has changed so much over the last decade. It's so much So I definitely got to a point where I was looking to grow and I was looking around me and I had written a lot of magazines. Stories are a lot more magazines stories to be written but I was like well. What can I add to this like when I look forward ten years at this company that I'm at which at that point was Conde Nast? Is there a job for me that I can see that? I can't do today but I could grow into and I did stop being able to see things in my own industry. That excited me. Does that mean that you would have been eventually doing less writing and more managing or would it have taken it away from the core of what? You're enjoying yes. There were managing the you know as a as somebody working as a sort of early to mid stage writer and reporter in the sort of more traditional media industry. Often you get to a place in your career where there are two doors. There is the editor door in there as the writer door. And if you choose the editor door then you may go into a series of roles that involves Making other people's work beautiful and also managing people on and I chose the writers door I wanted to remain an independent contributor telling stories in doing that kind of work I guess when I say like ways that I could grow I meant sort of exactly what I'm doing now. Opportunities to try storytelling and other mediums on an opportunity to have bigger and better stages to do that.
Disney's New CEO
"Disney CEO BOB. Iger is handing over the keys to the magic kingdom immediately. What I couldn't maybe it's not really. He's not going anywhere. I know he's not going to play with this beautiful succession. It's so ordered. It's just weird that it comes down to show. I'm leaving today but anyway I ever stepped down. I WanNa hear whether you've I wanna hear your your you actually no one. I want to hear some of your water cooler scuttle butt. Todd you give you my theory and go wild whatever. Go while. You're seeing that if anyone doesn't know this my son was yesterday afternoon. Bob Stepping down as Disney CEO. It's effective yesterday and replaced by Bob. Pick which has done a good job at theme parks. I guess he's been there a long time. Head of the company's Global Parks and unlike NBC. I was thinking. Wow he's not content creative guys a park that we think of it differently at comcast I think parks are important but it was almost like a secondary thing that we did comcast got when they took me started with garden. Graham Cast Disney started with good argue both NBC Universal and and Disney have been very good at coordinating those parts. Were you surprised the parks guy would run the entire creative operation of Stephanie's yes I I I don't know anyway. He will report directly to either. Who's going to stay on through his contract as Executive Chairman and basically the guy is going to report to the board so the his contract goes through the end of twenty twenty one he been. Ceo For fifteen years overseeing a tremendous growth at Disney acquisitions like Pixar Marvel Lucasfilm and most recently Fox's well as his shift to streaming with the launch of ESPN plus Disney plus in an interview exclusive interview on CNBC. I explained his decision was we looked at the businesses. We felt we have a great set of assets. We have a great strategy. What's next and what was next in terms of my own priorities is making sure that the creative pipeline and the company was really rich that all our creative engines were working extremely well and I wanted spend more and more of my time on that. I'm not sure I want to be. Ceo Virus either so with a theme park. Here's my theory of the case. Okay bye-bye signs a new employment contract as part of the transaction to buy Fox Rupert Murdoch stipulates that he has to be there. Okay Hey that him. By the way we went wild speculation that prevents him from running for president. And if you're really into wild speculation there are people out there that are suggesting somehow that this is some kind of entree to some kind of a Bloomberg Eiger of now. It's taking that off the table. That's crazy however he's still going to be in this place. Becky said it. He's not going anywhere he's effectively. The two bobs are basically running this place. Bob's reporting to him. So if Bob the new Bob about doesn't work out for whatever reason Bob Eiger is still there. He's also seen many transitions where people are sitting in waiting. Why wait it's possible? And I hope I for the new Bob Sake that it works out but if it doesn't and we've seen this story by the way at salesforce just happened yesterday where the CEO. Kevin Block didn't work out so could another Kevin in this case Kevin Mayor Ultimate step up? That's the person everybody expected was gonNA take the job to me. The big question mark this morning is if you are Kevin May or running Disney. Plus are you staying in this job because you thought potentially that you were getting the top job to me. Those are the issues that are being talked about around. The water

Tony Awards Preview
"Hi, everybody. It's Peter Travers than welcome to our special popcorn Tony award show. Now, I've gotta say, before we get into the nominees about who will win and who should win. This is been the most amazing year in Broadway history. It has made over two billion dollars at the box office that never happened. And why is it? I think it's Hollywood heat everybody from TV from movies from us. It wants to be on Broadway. They wanna be on that stage. You got this year. Kylo Ren and driver on Broadway. You have Walter, white Bryan, Cranston, there, Jeff Daniels who played Harry done in too, dumb and dumber movies. They're all fighting to be best, dramatic actor, what kind of stuff is happening on Broadway. Well, let's start with the major categories, and I'm gonna start with best musical the nominees are ain't too, proud the life and times of the temptations Beetlejuice remember that movie Haiti's town, the prom, and Tootsie. You remember that movie too? Well. I think the winner is Haiti's town. It's a rigid. It's basically the myth of Orpheus ritzy, but it's got a score by a woman named Naess Mitchell who doesn't come from Broadway, at all and kind of revolutionizes it. So what would happen what could spoil the fun? There's a little musical called the prom. It's really it's totally original. It's about these bunch of Broadway veterans, and they're really hard bitten, and they're not getting any press, and they decide to go to Indiana and help, a lesbian high school student take her girlfriend to the prom. That's it. How good is it? It's really good. And in terms of the Hollywood connection, Ryan Murphy, went to see it fell in love with it, and he's making a movie of it. So how about that? Then we have best play the Ferryman choirboy, Gary a sequel to Titus andronicus. What the constitution means to me an ink. I'm telling you people, the Ferryman is got to be a movie soon. It's an Irish play. It's about the troubles, and in on a stage. We get to see an entire family deal with violence deal with their own feuds. We've got babies onstage. We've got live alive goose. We have everything there's nothing like I don't think there's any competition for it at all except there was a snub, the most successful play in Broadway history. That's not a musical is to kill among bird, and for some reason, the Tony nominee said, let's not nominated what I want. Answer on that one best revival of a play. Arthur, Miller's all my sons the boys in the band, burn this torch song and the Waverley gallery. I think Arthur Miller's all my sons which brought a net. Bending back to Broadway is a show that he wrote in one thousand nine hundred forty seven a bout a guy who was manufacturing airplane, parts and was to rush to do it. And so the planes crashed and killed pilots during the war. We live in the world of Boeing. Now, how timely could this be? So I think that's really up there. And I in terms of seeing a show that by playwright Arthur Miller who says, let's deal with the world we live in this one really, really did it then we have bible of musical. This is easy, because there's only two there's Oklahoma Rogers and Hammerstein Oklahoma and kiss me. Kate. Of course, they were both movies. We saw Oklahoma with Gordon MacRae and Shirley Jones in the fifties. But kiss me, Kate is done in a traditional way. Kelli o'hara's in it, Oklahoma is directed by guide named Daniel fish who find darkness. We're Rogers and Hammerstein only found light. It's a revelation to watch this. It's not the Oklahoma you've ever remembered, and it sung in the kind of country western way, look, if you ever get to see this on Broadway or win a tours get there get there quick. Okay. Okay. Best actor in a musical. And so, we'll do alphabetically Brooks as Mantas in the prom, Derrick Baskin and ain't too, proud the life and times of the temptations Alex Brightman and Beetlejuice. Remember when Michael Keaton had their part, Damon down, oh in Rogers and Hammerstein, Oklahoma. And send Tino fun Tanna into okay? The favorite is Tino, Tanna who is playing the part that destined Hoffman immortalized in the movie in the nineteen eighties. But what Centeno Tanna doesn't remember him on TV in crazy ex girlfriend like I'm saying everybody's from TV, or he does so much more. He sings as a man sees a woman, he does physical comedy does everything but stand on his hat. And I say, you know, who's out there that can spoil the win for Santino Tanna. And my answer is no one because this is one of the great performances you'll ever see on a musical, comedy stage. He's the winner. Best actress in a play Benning in Arthur, Miller's all my sons, Laura, Donnelly, in the Ferryman. Elaine may in the Waverley gallery, Janet mcteer in Bernhardt hamlet, Laurie Metcalf in Hillary Clinton, and Heidi Shreck in what the constitution means to me. Okay. Elaine may doesn't win this Tony. You're going to hear from me. She's eighty seven years old. She's returned to Broadway. After decades to play the part of a woman fighting Alzheimer's, and everything is no perfect about what she's done. She started with Mike Nichols doing comedy. She was starring in movies of like the new leaf directed things like the heartbreak kid. She's just one of the best actors I've ever seen anywhere. And if she loses and, you know, I feel bad for an bending because if Elaine may wasn't here this year, I think she would be the winner, but come on. Attention must be paid people. And I also wanna talk about a snub how. How does Glenda Jackson who won the Tony last year for three women returned to Broadway as King Lear? We talk about the age of hashtag metoo and time's up Glenda. Jackson is playing king. Lear gets rave reviews and the Tony committee says we're not gonna nominate her now. No, we're paying attention. And we're gonna come back and get you our best actress in a musical. Stephanie, j block in the share show Caitlyn Kanoun in the prom Beth level, in the prom, Eva nobles, ADA in Haiti's town, and Kelley O'Hara and kiss me cake. Stephanie j block who is that theater veteran is playing share in a way that sometimes she's more share than share. You might think this is just an escapist show thing to know she finds the character of who she is share shows up at this show often does numbers with her, and pus share. There's who's a bigger Hollywood. Name who is coming to Broadway with the show about herself. It takes three actresses to play here. But Stephanie j block plays the central one. And she plays the hell out of it. So she has just got to win. I'm sorry, people. All right. Best featured actress in a play for new of Flanagan in the Ferryman seal, you keep. And Bolger into kill a Mockingbird. Christine Nelson, Gary a sequel to Titus andronicus Julie white and Gary sequel to Titus andronicus and Ruth Wilson and King Lear people if you see if you see to kill among bird, and you should seal, you Keenan Bolger is very controversial because she's playing scout scout in the book and in the movie remember is in eight or nine year old girl. A C Keenan Bolger is in her forties. And yet, what she finds in this character who grew up to be Harper who wrote this novel is the heart and soul of the peace. So I'm telling you people this, this has got to happen. See Keenan Bolger remember that name best featured actor in a play birdie Carville and ink, Robin to hasten boys in the band getting Glick into kill a monkey bird, Brandon your Ranna wits in burn this Benjamin Walker in Arthur Miller's. All my sons birdie, Carville in ink. Those of us, those of you who actually went to Broadway couple of years ago and saw of any kind of a musical where you were shocked at a man playing a woman, you saw birdie, Carville in Matilda, and he played this woman, this horrible headmistress, and now he's playing Rupert Murdoch. So every who in Hollywood, who in politics would anyone hasn't been in an Rupert Murdoch publication or paper and who hasn't been rolled over the coals in it that performance and in London when he played it in one and Olivia ward, he had to play it in front of Rupert Murdoch. It's just an incredible job. I wanna talk a little about the snubs in this category. The non nominees there isn't actor named Bengal Arghanab into Killa mugging bird who plays Tom Robinson. He is the black man who is on trial for raping a white woman, a crime never committed. And he's defended. By Jeff Daniels. Atticus Finch when Aaron Sorkin adapted Harper Lee's novel to the stage. He did it so that he could expand the role of the black characters as he did here. And again, the Tony committee, decided only to nominate the white actors from tequila, Mockingbird ignoring the two black actors who are just brilliant in their roles. You people you're going to get called on the carpet. You need to all right? Best featured actress in a musical, Lilli Cooper in Tootsie, amber, gray and Haiti's town Sarah, styles Tootsie, alley stroke, or in Rogers and Hammerstein Oklahoma and Mary, Testa in Rogers, and Hammerstein Oklahoma there, something totally remarkable that happened this year in stroke, and Oklahoma. This is a woman who when she was two years old was in an automobile crash, and was never able to walk again. And now on Broadway playing eight oh Anne who is like the sexual. Time bomb in Oklahoma, the one who sings, I can't say, no, the part went to Allie. Stroke, she plays it in a wheelchair and you would think that's inspiring enough. But when you watch her play at you, forget the wheelchair exists, and you're watching her take over the stage like Dolly Parton. She, it's just an amazing thing to watch and it works on so many levels. So I wanna be there when she wins that Tony, and I want to be standing up and applauding and going Bravo. She deserves all right. Best featured actor in a musical Andre shields in Haiti town and a groups Luccin. That's a good name into Patrick page in Haiti's town germy, pope in into proud the life and times of the temptations and Ephraim Sykes ain't too, proud the life and times of the temptations, the favorite, the one, I think will win is under the shields and Haiti's town. He's seventy three years old. He stands on that stage is the narrator in like a silver suit. In total control of body and every movement and pulls you in till you're memorized. Your mesmerizing you not take your eyes off of hundred shields. This is a veteran actor who needs to get this Tony. But what if he didn't who would go to there's a young actor named Jeremy pope who plays Eddie kendricks in the into proud the life and times of the temptations? And who does he's playing a difficult man. One of the most difficult of the temptations. But one of the most talented as well. He's also nominated this year as best actor in a in a play in choir, boy, this is to me, the brightest newcomer that you will see on the stage and you're going to see him everywhere, stage movies television. It's just the beginning. So if you get to see this, you're going to be able to tell your friends, I was there win. Okay. Best director of a play Rupert Gould for Inc. Sam Mendes for the Ferryman Bartlett. Fair for to kill a mocking bird Ivo von Hosver for network, and George C Wolfer Gary a sequel to Titus andronicus Sam Mendis in the Ferryman this play. Does a job on stage that equal to his first movie which was American Beauty, which you may remember won the best picture? Oscar and once Mendis the Oscar as best director.

Regulatory agencies across the world had to sign off on this deal, including the US department of Justice, which may Disney sell off a bunch of regional sports networks that FOX own just to keep them from dominating too much of the sports TV industry here. So yeah, this is this is a big deal. What does Disney get? I mean, what what that had the label FOX on. It goes over to Disney. So this is a seventy one point three billion dollar deal and involves two of the biggest studios in Hollywood. So there's a lot of names involved in this and TV and film that folks will recognize so so Disney gets outlets like Twentieth Century, Fox television, which produces shows like empire and modern family. They get FOX animation and National Geographic partners. Now, FOX meanwhile has created this slimmed-down company to include a lot of the stuff that Disney didn't by. So they have Fox News channel, FOX business network. The FOX broadcast network and Fox Sports. And in fact, the former speaker of the house Paul Ryan was named to the board of that new FOX corporation, so Rupert Murdoch's family, which of course, is controlled FOX Murdoch keeps the stuff which we can imagine is closest to his heart like, the Fox News channel and gets rid of some of this other stuff, right? A company that's a little more focused on news and sports. Okay. Couple of consequences here. One. You could imagine a bunch of layoffs as these two companies, consolidate is that likely. Yeah, there's a lot of concern in fear at lower levels in the entertainment industry that thousands of people could lose their jobs when Disney starts to consolidate its film and TV properties. We've already heard about some of these bigger executives who are going to shuffle around. You know, there's some folks from FOX high level TV executives that are gonna move over to Disney to help run their TV outfits, and then a big -secutive for maybe AMC was moved over and took a job running, FOX entertainment. So this is going to be interested and will this change? What we see? Oh, yeah. Oh, yeah. And this is another step in the streaming wars in a way, you know, Disney is getting bigger to compete with Amazon net. Flicks. The, you know, everything from Star Wars to dub dead pool is going to be in the same home, the Saint corporate home, they have the streaming service called Disney plus starting up so they're going to get a lot of material. That they're getting a controlling stake in Hulu, which is another streamer. There's a sense that some of the more adult oriented stuff might end up on Hulu and the more family stuff might end up on Disney. Plus, and then there's the question of what's going to happen with Disney owned ABC and FOX broadcast network once they have twelve months to really develop some new programming for each of those broadcasters, and we should note the Twentieth Century, Fox and Walt Disney pictures are both financial supporters of NPR and we've been listening to NPR TV critic, Eric Eric.

How Netflix is shaking up Hollywood's traditional Oscar model
"Think it is. You know, it it. It's the Ying and the Yang the push the poll, obviously movies. You know, the marvel comics have you don't pitch something that can be you know, a trilogy a lot of studios aren't interested. I work at you know, FOX where Rupert Murdoch has sold his movie division. But I also think televisions as good as it's ever been. You know, Rauma is a Netflix movie Amazon prime what do you make about the emergence of net flicks net flicks movies being nominated there certainly have much greater budgets than television shows do at a NBC or ABC how is that playing in Hollywood where net flicks now can win Oscars. Well, first of all they have and they're putting a lot of money into Roma, and they spent much more time having romantic theater to sorta get some of these older. Look, you're not gonna talk to anybody on your show, Colin who spends more time with octogenarian members of the academy than I do. They become a lot of my really good friends. But there is definitely some pushback that he man that's not a movie, I don't watch a movie on my television. I mean, I might watch screener on on television. TV shows costing one hundred million. I mean, I think it's I think I when I look at net flicks. It's not TV it's a combo. It's a hybrid. That's right. I think it's just harder to get the older academy voters to accept that. But Roma I think it's going to win the odds favorite winning best picture. And you know, once they get one that sorta though pushed down that wall in that house will crumble, and and I think that we'll see many more movies that premiere on Netflix or prime or apple. And you know when apple comes. They're gonna come hard with real quality. I mean, I think you're right. There's a lot of talk in this town, but moaning, the there's no mid range picture, either spend a hundred dollars two hundred and fifty million or you can spend eight hundred thousand but there's nothing, where's the twelve million to twenty million dollar picture and those stories are on television. They are getting written for television. As you just said, I mean, it's beyond calling this the golden age of television. This is a whole new plane. Television. I mean, you can there are now thirty shows that I know are excellent that I can't even get to. And that's where the best writing is is on television. There's some good writing and movies, but but the best writing out here, which is what and writing drives these stories. The best writing is happening on on television on Netflix on prime, and and and, you know, better call Saul and the Americans and all these great great shows on on on basic cable.
A showdown between Megyn Kelly and NBC

Manny Farber and termite art, featuring approximately thirty artists and more than one hundred works Farber, championed art that was committed to opt survey Shen and deep attention now on view, more at Moca dot org. I'm Kim masters, and this is the Hollywood breakdown joining me as Bella near the Hollywood reporter and Matt as we speak. I think Megan Kelly's lawyer is flying from Los Angeles to New York for showdown with NBC ship been in trouble for a while now. But this is the sound that did the job that I think had been percolating for awhile at NBC. You do get in trouble. If you are a white person who puts on the or black person who puts on Whiteface Halloween like. I was a kid. That was okay. As long as you addressing character. So apparently, not okay. She has been a very expensive investment that did not pay off at all. And this. I would note if she came from Fox News, not the first time she's made racist comments. Notably. Santa Claus is white. That was she told the world. Everybody knew that in two thousand thirteen I feel like she sort of, you know, made her her identity clear at that point. But NBC picked her up. This is one of those situations where NBC knew there was a risk here. Much like ABC knew there was a risk with Roseanne and NBC took the leap anyways. And now, it's lo and behold blowing up in NBC's face. I think Megan Kelly will leave NBC I don't think this relationship is salvageable question is whether she will land anywhere else. But I just think that the combination of the ratings problems, and the fact that she was horribly miscast as a. A morning show host. And this latest blow up is really just kind of the last straw. So I think she will be gone. Absolutely. She's trying to embarrass the heck out of NBC. Meanwhile, with her lawyer saying that they want Ronan Farrow to be involved obviously trying to project. Bad things that NBC appears to have done in the past talking about somebody on the real housewives who wore black face as if that is apropos to how a person who presents herself as a journalist should behave. I think we can agree that the sixty nine million dollars over three years was money badly spent and she's going to clamor, and I think they will pay her. And honestly, I don't know who would employer at this point because we are told that Rupert Murdoch got fed up with her at FOX, and you know, she's branded in a toxic way right now. Yeah. And it's one thing to be toxic to a television network. She managed to lose to agents in the scope of one day, actually, her relationship with CA which had represented her for the past couple of years having going downhill recently, and we're told that she had expressed some frustration. Also represents no Oppenheim is the president of NBC news. So that relationship ended CA confirmed that Megan Kelly was out. She had also been talking to j syrup. At UTA, another prominent agent who represents a lot of people in the in the broadcast space, and when all of this controversy broke a UTA decided that they did not want to represent Megan Kelly either she ended up hiring a litigator the same day. So she went through to agents and got a litigator in about twenty four hours. Very interesting. I think we can safely predict that litigation will not ensue. I mean to me this raises the question again about Andy lack who runs NBC news has overseen a lot of problems at that network. But so far Steve birkhead of NBC universal standing by him. Thank you, Matt. Thank you. That's not felony editorial director of the Hollywood. Reporter. He joins me this Monday at two o'clock on the business.
