Journalists of Color

It's Been a Minute with Sam Sanders

Journalists of Color

"Before the interviews I wanNA share my theory. For why all of this exploded for journalists of Color Right now? It goes back a few years. So many of us went from covering the first black president to covering Donald Trump. And ever, since trump came down that escalator, announcing his campaign back in Twenty fifteen, when he denounced Mexicans as drug traffickers rapist. When he was that he would build a wall at the border and that Mexico will pay for it. Those journalists were told to avoid using words like racist or lie to describe some of trump's worse behavior. That kind of self censorship, especially on race for a lot of us, it became untenable after we had to cover the death of George Floyd and report on that video of a black man, being choked to death for eight minutes. On top of that we are now dealing with the coronavirus pandemic, which is laying bare racial inequities across this country. And Corinthian has given a lot of us time to sit and think. Notice what's going on in the world and in our lives and in our newsrooms? You have black journalists and other journalists of color who think of themselves as truth seekers in the same way that their white colleagues, too, but very often when they tell the truth about racism when they tell the truth about. Bright, white supremacy. They're labeled as activist. Highs! They dared to bring their blackness across the newsroom threshold. PSORIATIC McDonald's has been thinking a lot about race and the news. So I asked her as a black journalist in this moment. What does she want to see change so I would say what I want is actual structural change within newsroom leadership? I do not want the equivalent of painting black lives matter on a street in yellow letters, but in a newsroom. It's visible. By that doesn't really solve anything when it comes to pay discrepancies between. White male journalists and black female journalist who do the same job have the same level of experience and one is making thirty thousand dollars a year more than the other. The other thing is that. You cannot have. Newsroom leadership that is completely made up of six Cheddar straight white men. Even. Under straight white women. Zicklin or gender straight Whiteman that power needs to be distributed more equitably. You know the other thing died. I want to see I wanNA see US cover. Race honestly. right? Race isn't just something that black people, experience or something that non white experience, attempting that everyone experience and says and so. There needs to be a baseline of literacy rate when it comes to how we talk about race with an America how it operates within American history, and how that informs. President and what world. News media has played in that way. We have to consider that. The last time that we had a pandemic, the nineteen eighteen flu pandemic. We need to recognize that. The paper of record in Chicago the Chicago Tribune. Is Basically scapegoating black people who are fleeing the American south, basically saying Oh half a million darkies are basically invading Chicago. If that's objectivity as not the kind of objectivity that I want to participate in them. Yeah, yeah, I WANNA get personal a little bit You ended up being quoted in New York Times. Article about this reckoning talking about how you didn't have a great time at the Washington Post. You've tweeted about your experience as a black woman in newsrooms. What does this reckoning meant for you? And what have you been trying to get off your chest and this moment about your experience? In some of the newsroom's that we've been talking about my hope for this reckoning. is that. There is not one more class of you know young. Ernest! Twenty two year old coming out of journalism school I'm who basically have to go through this really damaging gauntlet. We're constantly sort of questioning yourself and your own worth and I think there are a lot of really talented journalists who have been driven from the field. Because at some point, they feel like they have to make a choice between their own mental health. Or being journalist. And they just self-preservation and I cannot blame them. and that is really a shame, because think about the people that those journalists now think about the stories that they could have told. The access they could have had picked the access to walk into certain spaces at their white colleagues cannot exactly and you know one of the ways, and this is not the only way that this is important, but one of the ways that this is important is. We need them to trust us. Our job is to tell their stories and to tell them accurately and to tell them fairly. And if people are are always getting pushed out the folks who might actually be able to empathize with them who know where they're coming from right I? There's a quote from their lake when I fall where she basically expresses the you know, she's probably the only person who covered public housing who's actually lived in public housing? That, yeah, that is. Expertise right that is. Valuable knowledge so I just I want us to be able to practice our profession with humanity. Yeah, and also it's like in this moment where it seems like more than ever before. At least in my lifetime, there is such a deficit of trust. Americans don't trust institutions. They don't trust journalism. They don't trust facts. Worst argument about whether or not mask can prevent the spread of Corona virus like in this environment if newsrooms don't act in fix some of this stuff. is going to create more mistrust in the media and these news outlets will become less relevant in a moment in which I would argue. They are needed more than ever before. Yes, and you know the thing is is and I've said this repeatedly at that American journalism does have a credibility crisis. The the credibility crisis that we have I think. Actually bears a lot of similarities to. Our current sort of Voter disenfranchisement problem. Being. In Journalism, we have not spent enough time. with the very same folks who are often disenfranchised when it comes to media coverage as well right. And when we think about the press and freedom of the press is an instrument of democracy we have to think about. enfranchising everyone, we have to think about making sure that they do find us credible. The folks. If they look at the newspaper, even look at a website or they listen to the radio and their conclusion is. That these entities are not telling the truth about them in their lives and held their lives are. For them yeah for them. That's a credibility issue for us. Yeah we can fix. It failed them. That means that. We have to develop far better relationships with folks who have historically been shunned or shut out of district of media coverage are only allowed to participate in very limited ways. You know I still very much believe in that adage, the journalism exist to comfort the afflicted and afflict comfortable. Thanks again to riot, not at McDonald's the culture writer for the undefeated and also this year. She was nominated a pilot sir. My mind. I wanted to hear from other journalists of color about their newsroom experiences. And they wrote in. Here if you, my name is Lavi Cima Guy side. I'm a naturalized citizen who came to this country as a young child. I worked at a bare he a newspaper for a long time and have fond memories of my time there. I had mostly white editors, and in fact, I've only had one non white supervisor in my over two decades in journalism. My name is John. Sepulvado, I mixed. I have Mexican Irish indigenous and Black Ancestry I worked in public media for fifteen years. There are tons of horror stories. There was the white woman editor who asked me if I like dog-fighting because she quote hurt. Might People like dogfighting? There was another white woman editor told me to smile more around the office because I quote have dark features and those dark features, scared herself and other white women around the office. One time a headline I, wrote for one of my own stories, led to a newsroom wide, meeting an emotional one, where a bunch of US had to persuade top editors to let us call the president's racism what it is! The most frustrating part was that I and others had to explain to our colleagues. Why our voices were important. And partly because they reflected the communities we covered. argued. Repeat, a thousand more stories like that. But at. A point I realized. That no matter what I did no matter how good I was no matter how hard I worked. I would always be seen. As something that is not. White. And my mobile was the leave the industry. All right time for a break. When we come back, we will hear from Latina, trailblazer who refused to leave the news business. Instead. She started her own media company to tell the stories that she wanted to tell. Hey another reminder asking you all to fill out that survey for us. Okay, it is anonymous. It is short and the link for it is NPR DOT org slash I B. A. M. Survey. All one word I BAM SURVEY NPR DOT Org. Slash IBM. Filled out I'll be really happy if he do thanks.

School will start off our course in economics within workout for your brain how to decide what something newly costs for? Planet money from, NPR. People still find it really interesting salmon like I'm like no. No I. I was the first Latina in the newsroom at NPR ever to step foot. WHO WASN'T CLEANING IT? That was me right that that was that. Was this Latina? That is Maria. She's had a long career in media, not just here NPR but also at CNN NPS in two thousand ten. She founded her own company for total media. And she has a memoir. It's called once. I was you that comes out in September, but most of you probably know Maria. As the host of a very long running public radio show turned podcast from NPR and through media. It's like new USA mighty. Hossack Latino USA has been around since the early nineties. It is attributed by NPR. which is why you hear NPR in the credits, but that will be changing USA is moving. As distributor. It means nothing's GonNa Change for you. Our listener that our audience is going to get way way way bigger. We're very excited. Announcement might have been confusing for listeners, but don't worry like. She said you'll still be able to hear the show. But the Journal of Color, especially in public radio that move meant that NPR was losing a hugely influential show dedicated to covering Latino stories in the US. And from its founding NPR has been well bad on race. More than seventy percent of NPR's newsroom is white and of the sources you here on NPR's air, those voices they are more than eighty percent white. People of Color who work in public media? We have been saying for years. Fix this including Maria Hosa. We're asking the question. Are you listening? Are you hearing? And that his own ready a power dynamic that is wrong. This notion is the assumption that they the they will always have the power I. Ask Maria what Latino USA leaving NPR means for this network, but I I asked her about blazing trails. One could see your path to be one of color who found her own company as a shining success, but one could also see your path as proving that the conventional spaces in media can accommodate of voice like you the way they should you know like. I'm so proud of what you're doing, but also the fact that you have to make your own production company shows at the NPR's and the PBS's and the CNN in many ways. Don't get it and can't help people like you tell the stories that you need to tell. I was thinking about that as I was thinking about our interview Sam because. My husband calls me Aguirre, a warrior, and then as I was thinking about our conversation, Sam. I was like well. That's great i. like that, but you know what I don't want. Journalists of color to have to be warriors at into order to be able to work as To work as journalists of Contians, who can bring their entire cells into the news room? Who are going to be seen who are going to not only be seen and heard but actually. Put into positions of power to be the ones who are listening and making the decisions about. Yeah, we want that story on the front page and the headline is going to say that exactly. I want you you know everyone has been using it. Everyone's been going to twitter sharing their reckoning story, the slight the knocked in that promotion. The being told you can't do this do that. Give me one of your reckoning stories from your career when I when I come to this country, I'm born in Mexico. My whole family's born in Mexico. We're raised on south side of Chicago. You know sixties and seventies, but as Mexican immigrants we also understood the essential nature of journalism and American independent journalism and so. My father was watching. Meet the press every Sunday and we were watching the today show and we watched sixty minutes, and because of the fact that it was so American in holding people accountable and I was like that's what journalism is so long. Story Short is many years later actually a decade ago go to sixty minutes when I'm out of work and needed a job actually and. They basically like look, can you Can you come back and talk to us? When one of the old white guys get secret is really and I, said and I just remember like. Like am I supposed to laugh? It's funny. Is that a joke as being? and. As we do in the media's people of Color, 'cause we're really good at laughing things off. Like. Yeah. Banter you know the the the the the we're so smart. On. Exactly Racism! Exactly. And I got into the subway at fifty ninth street onto my apartment in Harlem and I cried on the train. and. I was just like, but I am not. You know I'm knocking to let this take me down. And that was the moment that I decided to create food. Media Winds Rams history. Takes over Latino, USA. And Expands Latino USA grows the show and let the USA's audience twenty seven years in. Is in a continual upward trajectory. You love to see it. As I. Want to ask more about what needs to happen. We are in this moment now. Where so many journalists coming forward with their stories? But it's still unclear what newsroom leaders will actually do to fix this stuff you have been on all sides of media for profit nonprofit. Give me like a checklist of the big three or four things that mass media should do right now to effectively respond to the issues raised in this reckoning. Feel like this is a moment to be having that difficult conversation, which is pushing this reckoning that we're talking about to another level. I'm going. Give you an example, Sam it brings me joy, it brings me no joy to have to ask white men in senior editorial positions how they consider my role as a Mexican immigrant woman journalist. In relation to a president who insults every single one of those things that I do? And and And basis a lot of that on his white supremacy. Which is very challenging word to even use in our newsrooms right, but yeah. I don't feel comfortable saying it. I want you to feel uncomfortable having to answer that question. Because his white supremacy does not impact you in the way, it impacts me, and I am a journalist just like you. I am an equal journalist just like you so now. You helped me to figure out. Harmon handle that because that that impacts our might quote unquote objectively, you have to be able to recognize that you do not have an ownership of activity or an ownership of the media or an ownership of public media, or it's not yours to share yeah. Did any of the issues we've discussed about. In diversity and Unfair situations that journals of have to deal within this industry. Did those factor into your business decision. To leave NPR ex. Look I've had you know NPR's my family? IF NPR calls I'm going to say when you I was absolutely and Bureau Sam he's my family. You know we hung out once, but he's. He's my brother. Because we're digesting PR so NPR's my family Mi. Familia was my first job. But You know I started a company. And I have a team of very savvy business and media executives journalists. And when they said look, we have an opportunity here in in a competitive marketplace A. Somebody PR X.. Who wants to really go big? Yeah, I will say you know they are all of these. Underground email channels and slack channels and discussion boards were journalists of color are coming together to talk about all these issues and there's been a lot of chatter about your show. What says about NPR yeah? Why am I so disconnected? Oh my God. I thought I. Thought I was like connected because I'm on twitter and I got a fat. And what folks have been saying? People who love your show Oh my goodness. They're saying well. This speaks to the larger problems. NPR has always had with content may for people of Color. They don't market it enough. They don't support it enough. You have these program. Directors at various stations put a show like yours on at not great hours. This is the stuff that people are saying. Do you I mean like to the extent that you can elaborate on it, you know. Did you feel like NPR? Neglected or didn't promote enough your type of show. So of these issues at play with the race and diversity in space like NPR. Again. Let New USA right now is growing an audience at kind of extraordinary numbers I think we're one of the few public radio programs or previously distributed by NPR. That is growing an audience at these numbers. And so the fact that. We made this decision. Says everything about. WHAT NPR. Kind of thinks. About letting USA. Now having said that I don't know you know I. Don't know the internal finances at NPR. Maybe NPR's is is really facing a a real financial challenges that I'm not privy to. And so you know, but but when you're thinking about AH, show, that has this kind of. Audience Commitment There was a point not long ago. When one of your colleagues called me up, actually she works in. She's a Latina colleague at NPR in the newsroom, and she called me up and she said. Do you think that Latino USA has been this incredibly successful because of NPR or despite NPR. And no one had asked me that and I kind of like. ooh And I said well actually despite. Despite NPR, do you think you know 'cause? There are a lot of shows not produced by NPR. Distributed by NPR. Do, you think other shows like that in your same boat that were hosted by white people or felt to maybe India leadership more mainstream. Do you think they got more support than your show did pound for pound? Yeah How does that make you feel? Like I said, that's why. I didn't. See I've been feeling this for a long time, my love. News, so Gimme a word for the emotion. Well right now I'm glad that I'm with a partnership with Pr X.. That's not gonNA units not on the table so I'm like I'm looking to the future. That's why I'm like yeah I'm all about like? It's all about the dodge this morning, boxing teacher. was making us do the we've the. We've the constant, which by the way is really really hard, and that's just how I feel is a journalist of color in a survivor Mexican immigrant woman in this like it's always like whoo. Okay well and so. That stuff that you're saying like. How does it make me? That's rolled off me a long time ago, and it is a central part of what has moved me as a journalist as a woman of color in this country is that. Is like. Oh, you're going to try to silence me or tell me that I'm not objective or tell me that I have an agenda or tell me that is not going to be successful or tell me. Okay I might go home and cry. But I'm not GONNA give up. Thanks, again to Maria Hinojosa. She's the host of the Tino USA. We asked NPR for a response to what Maria told us and they gave us this statement. We have the highest respect and admiration for the Latino USA team and from Maria Hinojosa. We are proud. That Latino USA originated at NPR member station, K. U. T., and that since nineteen, ninety-four NPR has been the program's national distribution partner today, hundreds of NPR member stations bring the show to their listening communities. We are grateful. Maria entertain who are produced a consistently wonderful show and nurtured journalist who have gone on to work all over the public radio system. We are glad public radio listeners will continue to hear Latino. USA on their public radio stations across the nation. All right now. We're going to have a chat with someone who just began working with NPR Kelly. McBride NPR's newest public editor. I WanNa talk with her. About one particular part of this entire debate, the way in which we've been taught as journalists to do our jobs that most fundamental level leads to systemically racist outcomes. I am talking specifically about the idea of journalistic objectivity. This idea that reporters only report the facts. They keep themselves out of the story, and they eliminate all biased in their coverage. A lot of folks say well. That only works if you're man and straight. And White. I wanted to find out. Why are journalism so entrenched in objectivity and whether or not this standard is fair, so I went to one of the top journalism at experts in the country I am the senior vice president at the POYNTER institute. I am the chair of the Craig Newmark Center Ethics in leadership at the Poynter Institute and I am also the public editor for NPR that Kelly McBride. Kelly has advised newsrooms about difficult journalism ethics problems for years, so it made. Made, sense to begin by asking Kelly for her definition of objectivity in journalism, it really means that you will objectively pursue the facts in order to determine the truth, and there's all sorts of things that go into that right like there's how you frame the story how you identify who you're going to interview, and then really important is who else is involved in the story. So who edits it because that the the safety nets that are created in newsrooms are meant. To help an individual program against her own bias now the problem is if all the safety nets have the same biases that that doesn't happen right and that's. That's exactly what's been happier. Also objectivity has come to mean certain different things for different journalists. There are some. Who say well objectivity means that you have to. Pretend! That kind of you don't exist, and you have to just simply say what these powerful people are saying doing. You don't provide context you don't provide analysis. It's a kind of. Totally taking yourself all the way out of it to the point where you won't even tell people if you vote or not. And I think. This is the thing for me like there's so many different interpretations of what objectivity means, yet you know that's actually kind of a confederation of two different principals in journalism, so one is the principle of objectivity in this idea that that we are pursuing the truth in spite of our own biases, and that that we actually promised, swear to God that we're going to get it right because we have all these safeguards in place, even though they've failed numerous times in the past. But the other thing is is that in American journalism in particular? It was built on this business principle of aggregating A. Politically diverse audience, and then selling that audience to advertisers, so in in Europe you see much more you see much more of the journalism coming through a political lens because that's just how the business model grew up over there, but over here especially as in different markets, you went from multiple newspapers to a single newspaper. There was this motive that was really a business motive that you would bring in the entire political spectrum and if you were going to do that, you needed to convince that audience that you in the newsroom didn't have. Any particular biases it is refreshing to hear you as a leader in the industry acknowledged that some of this is about the principles and bedrocks of our journalism, and some of it's about business, and at the end of the day for whatever reason we have ended up with a definition of objectivity. That is as much about business as it is about telling the truth and I think what frustrates so many journalists, somebody younger journalists, journalists of color or women require journalists as at newsroom leaders are resistant to acknowledge that I read NPR's social media policy, and it's couched in terms of ethics and morality and idealism. But I also know that part of it is the bottom line is. Not Do anything of the public facing person at NPR. That would possibly damage NPR's revenue streams. And I mad. They don't just say that. Yeah? They don't mean to say that they. Don't I mean that's the thing is they? Don't. They really do believe, and I actually believe also that there is. That there is a line somewhere that we shouldn't cross, and maybe it is way up the continuum on just. If you're a political reporter. You can't help people who you're voting for. Maybe the line is all the way over there. Right, because of imagine that like if you were a political reporter in you were covering. Trump's campaign and you again. I'm voting for Biden though I was that guy. Did you tell people out loud. I didn't tell folks voting for in two thousand sixteen, and I wouldn't but I think gets. Those are the ones where I think everyone can agree, but there's there's there's other things like how much of me do I. Bring to a story when I'm covering police violence against black men. Am I allowed to say that's racist. Because I know what racism is experienced, it trust me and don't make me say racially tinged. Like those, and that's where it gets murkier well. You know you know where I. I experienced this. Yeah, so when gay marriage was was a hot hot issue, right? They were different cities or states that were making gay marriage legal. The Supreme Court hadn't yet decided in San Francisco the mayor of San Francisco. made it legal and a reporter for the San Francisco Chronicle on a Saturday after weeks of covering it, the City Hall reporter went down and got a marriage license, and she was taken off the beat. Wow, and as in as an ethicist, right is a journalism ethicist. I was like wait a second. That can't be right. because. She was exercising in San Francisco. What was a legal right? You don't mean you didn't tell people who'd been divorced. They couldn't cover this issue because they'd you know somehow. Defiled the sanctity of marriage by? Getting divorced. So that was, that was where realized that you cannot penalize people for who they are. That's not fair. Yeah, because you end up with the only people that are untainted enough to do all the work are people who are only straight are people who are only men are people who have only gone to college and has a certain pedigree people who are an the deaths a problem, so bias is to right. It's just that we don't well. That's the thing, but these leaders aren't seeing those. Yeah, because they look just like them. I think now what is required to speak to the Syria. Systemic issues being raised in this reckoning. Going to have to be an acknowledgement that the movement toward writing these wrongs. It's going to be in some ways painful and you should do it anyway. From your conversations with newsroom leaders across the country. Do you think they're ready to accept that idea that this might hurt that? It might not just be. A statement and everyone shakes hands, and says sure good now now I mean nobody wants to voluntarily sign up for something painful. You do it because you know that what comes on the other side is worth head. There's individuals in every single newsroom who are part of the problem. Then somebody has to tell those people that if they want to keep their jobs, they have to stop being part of the problem, and that means that they're either going to have to be quiet. Or they're going to have to change or leave. Just leave well. That's I mean if they want to keep their job right like. Yeah and I've seen people. Who are these problem, people? I don't think I've ever seen any of them. Actually chain, but I've seen some of them. Learn to be quiet and let other people lead. And then they actually become the beneficiary. Of what comes after yeah. And then I. Think also so many lessons of me too I. Think are applicable to this meteoroid. Me To kind of work. Because a lot of folks were just literally canceled and they had to go, they were shamed. They were fired. And you said you can't be here anymore. And it was painful for them, and probably all the folks that liked them in love them but like. Sometimes, it's just that yeah. So my last question for you back to these two ideals that butt heads this idea of objectivity. But also this business idea of needing to be somewhat neutral to appeal to a large audience. And reworking probably reassessing, what objectively means a newsroom? What advice would you give to newsroom leaders? Writing up that next ethics guideline for their journalist about quote, Unquote Objectivity Post reckoning. Yeah, so this is where I'm supposed to come through with something really profound and I mean I. I am I. Am humble enough to say. That I don't have the answer yet. But I'm also arrogant enough to say that I believe after working through lots of really really hard ethics problems with newsrooms that I think we are going to find the answer and I think it's going to start by. Recognizing that there is a difference between. Revealing political bias. and. Revealing lived experience. And we need to start there and say your lived. Experience should not count as political bias. Thanks again to Kelly McBride joining us and thanks to everyone who, over the last week or so shared very very personal stories about life as a person of color in the newsroom. I heard from colleagues as well. And one thing one of those colleagues told me about all of this. She said so much of this work is convincing journalist. who think they've been doing it right for so long that maybe in some ways they've been doing it wrong. And then she said to me. This phrase really stuck with me, she said. How do you argue with the fish about the water there's. I. Don't know just yet how to do that. It's pretty difficult. It seems frustrating,

Growing Weed in the Garden with Johanna Silver

"Joanna. Silver is a gardener. Writer and editor formerly the Gordon Editor at Sunset magazine. She is a regular contributor to Martha Stewart Living. Better homes and gardens and the San Francisco Chronicle the author of the old dry garden on the garden and legacy of famed California plants woman. Ruth Bancroft this week. Joanna joins us to talk about her newest book growing weed in the garden. A no fuss seed to stash guide to outdoor cannabis cultivation out now from Abrahams press cannabis in California has been legal for medical use since nineteen ninety-six and in November of Two Thousand Sixteen California. Voters approved the adults use of Marijuana Act to legalize the recreational use of cannabis the use sale and possession of cannabis over a certain level of THC remains illegal under federal US law that said according to a recent report on NPR thirty three US states currently allow for some form of sale and consumption of marijuana and of those more than twenty states have designated the cannabis industry as essential during the corona virus outbreak from her shelter in place with her young family in Berkeley California. Joanna joins us today to shine a brighter light on the often confusing. Growing we'd as Gardiner's welcome Joanna. Thank you so nice to be here back with you. The last time we spoke we were speaking primarily about your first book the Bold Dry Garden and this new book is something of a An adventurous kind of Tangent. Or like offshoot from your original. Garden writing work. I want to start though with your current relationship to plants and the garden world both personal and Professional Joanna. What do you do everyday tell listeners? More about who you are and what you're up to. It is so nice to be talking to you again even just anticipating the conversation that I would be having with. You got me just like thinking about life and anyway thank you. Just thank you for having me. Thank you for making all the room to talk to people about about exactly this. Their relationship to plants I am home now as you know. All non-essential workers are and I am doing the very essential work of raising my son who turns three in July and In a non pandemic situation spends most of his day in a share So we gardened some But it was more like gardening light and now that we're home together. I am gardening heavy and doing with him I salt. I was already going to have a vegetable garden this year. I was already scaling back on the. We'd I'm only really growing at this year to continue to write about it It's a it's a really fun plant to grow et Cetera et CETERA. But I really have this urge to grow fruits and vegetables with my son and so even though that was already going to happen I dug up to maybe like eight by eight feet by thirty inch. Beds right in the middle of our meadow grass to with him to create more space. So as I talked to you he's asleep. There's dirt all over my hands and I'm feeling really really connected to the hard honest Labor of garden creation and it feels so good so good and you. You touched on a couple of things already right there. One being the fact that many of us are home as quote unquote non essential and yet in this moment so many people have turned back to activities and connections that are so essential like our own attachment and connection to how you survive how we make our out. We make our lives not just livings. And that is in raising our families and cultivating art pieces of land. So okay I'M GONNA I'M GONNA have a go back just a little bit before we dig into the structure of the book in in some of these levels on which you got intrigued. Many listeners will remember the bull dry garden. But just for those who. Don't give us a little background on you. Where where were the people? And the places and the plants that grew into a person who would wanna be a person that wrote about gardens and gardening with her son as a matter of both principle and practicality so I got my start farming in college after traveling so really interested in food and food security. I had a very meandering path and ended up in the editorial Test Garden at Sunset Magazine. Back in the Menlo Park days through to the Oakland and New Test Garden in Sonoma's county days and went from outdoors at the magazine to indoors. Writing and editing and timber press reached out to me looking for a bay area writer to write this book idea that they had about Ruth Bancroft S- Garden cactus in dry garden in Walnut Creek California and I pitched myself because I was young and ambitious and so I wrote a book about. Ruth's life and Roots Gardens. She just passed away actually also twenty early twenty eighteen late twenty seventeen at the age of one hundred nine And so just a couple of years before that. I wrote this book about her life and her garden. I think the fun one of the fun things for me as a gardener and garden communicator journalist person is seeing so many come back to gardening and recognize it as this essential thing that it is and that you and I and kind of die. Hard gardeners have has always known. And we've been advocating for now. You also indicated in this first question this sort of interesting Almost conflicted feeling about growing weed. And I think it's a perfect segue into the conversation for us on this on this program. People have been telling me that I should do an episode on weed for the longest time. Because as you note in your introduction to the book it's one of the largest crops in California and many many people are interested in it and it has this deep historical ritualistic medicinal blige intimate like wait and Gravitas to it but that is so blurred by the the other baggage that comes with it that I have stayed away from it until now because I was so compelled by yearbook and the way that you handled that year and maybe it was a little bit more of researching documenting and writing about this project. You took on as a as an assignment not necessarily a personal passion but an assignment and So we really kind of want to get into that the I just WanNa say by the way that your documentation of life at home with your To almost three-year-old Garden intern as you call him on. Instagram has been in total pleasure to watch in. Its true sort of honesty. Raw dirty fingered honesty. Thank you. It's been. It's been a massive creative outlet for me. Yeah Yeah Okay so. Tell us about this book. Why this book how did it happen? What made you decide to take on writing a book about growing weed in twenty seventeen? I had a baby and I was headed back to work You know six ish months later back to Sunset Magazine Garden editor where I thought I'd have the job for the rest of my life Kathy Brazil before me held the position for forty years and I was all set to go back. It was the week before. Maternity leave was over and the place was bought by private equity in lost my job I felt desperate to keep writing and working and reached out to everyone. I've ever written for asking for assignments Just to keep going to feel some forward momentum and a former editor in chief of the magazine. Kitty Morgan Worked at the Chronicle San Francisco Chronicle and I reached out to her until I wanted to write for her you know. The chronicle does garden design edible gardening whatever and She said you have a new baby. I bet you don't have time to do lunch But I may be called her bluff and I was like I totally have time to do lunch and met her for lunch and she. It was right before recreational use went legal and including recreational growing in California. And she was like I have this whole other idea for you. I want you to grow wheat in your backyard and documented as a gardener. I think at that time everyone like it was coming but it still felt even more taboo than it does now. We were all sort of figuring out how to talk about how he felt about cannabis being something that we can talk about and And so I told her I didn't know where to get seeds. And she said emphatically. That's your opening line and it was supposed to be for this part the separate website run by the Co Chronicle called Green State Which has since been folded into the magazine or into the newspaper and it actually got got lost its funding for a while but kitty was so dedicated to me that they ran the series in the food and wine section on Sundays and I worked through this ten part series for them on growing lead in my backyard as a gardener starting from knowing nothing to having a big crash course in the plant yet everything about the naming and needing to forge new contacts. I had I was starting from zero other than my years of experience being garden writer And a gardener no for sunset.

Electronic Television: The Great Depression And The World's Fair

"It's nineteen thirty. The world is stuck in the early stages the great depression many Americans lift their spirits at the new moving picture shows in theaters and nickelodeon 's Buster Keaton Charlie Chaplin comedies. These films are often introduced with Mickey mouse cartoons or newsreels one newsreel in particular dazzles the audience with the promise of soon bringing these new moving picture shows into their very own homes presents. A backstage preview television the newest miracle of modern Electrical Engineering Mr penalty shown shown at the right is working on the image dissect to photoelectric camera. Tube of his own invention that distinguishes his system of television from others. It is said to be responsible for the most clearly defined television pictures placed in the second of this receiving system is a funnel shaped cattle due the round flat surface of its bulb becomes the picture screen in Studio Monitor. It does it as well. As in home receiving sense the image detector Tube and the Cathode Ray tube are the heart and brain system. Television Vilo Farnsworth's image to sector tube and camera system had finally brought the long anticipated picture radio into being station equipment. The electrons become radio impulses to broadcast and picked up by receiving sense where the routine is with us. The radio impulsive becoming points of light that appear on the screen as picture thirty pictures. I completed every second. These earliest television programming was live performance music and sound accompanied. The OBAMAS was action both visible and audible elements going on the air in perfect synchronization battling with the speed of light to amaze of tubes and equipment. The show leaves the station send the towers viewed by the television public and audience as yet small and comparatively ignorant of the research and experiment. That makes it possible rush to see and hear people many miles away watching this newsreel in the movie theater. The audience is intrigued but sceptical. The most fanciful dream of mankind is day startling reality destined to become the world's most popular science in one thousand nine thirty in San Francisco. Two years have passed since Filo funds worth with help from his wife. Pam Gardner and her brother cliff triumphantly showed off off a working prototype of electronic television. Violence picture was on the front page of the San Francisco Chronicle under a headline that called him a genius is name was being being mentioned in newsreels magazines journals and the Associated Press but he hadn't yet found a manufacturer to partner with so financially files fortunes agents hadn't changed Penn gave birth to their first son. Filo T farnsworth third the previous year and a second son. Kenny would follow in nineteen thirty one but now a curious envelope in the days male brings a new possibility. You got a letter here. Filo says it's from New York I can't believe. RCA is offering one hundred thousand dollars for the image sector would. That's wonderful that exactly pam they want to own it outright i. It's not ideal but one hundred thousand dollars is a lot of money. Not compared to what television will eventually be worth. It's a mistake to cash in too soon like this. We have to keep the faith. I understand. Filo it's your invention that's Pammy. It's not it it never was. It's it's all of the great minds that have come before to make this possible. And it's you it's cliff. All of us were a team but they wanna buy our work and call it. There's it's just not fair. They can license it if they like. I've spent my entire life working towards this Pam. It's like it's like trying to sell one of our children. The Lord will provide Filo a a few weeks later. The farnsworth's receive another big opportunity with visit to the lab from United Artists. The Film Production Company was Silent Age Film Stars like Charlie the chaplain. Douglas Fairbanks D W Griffith and Mary. PICKFORD PICKFORD is especially enthusiastic. We just had to see this amazing new television system. We've heard so much about it. But when the time comes the image to sector won't cooperate Filo is rattled. I I'm sorry folks. This is humiliating million chaplain smiles. Don't sweat it. I've seen worse like Douglas's latest picture a few hours later. After the stars leave cliff finds the problem on a wire wasn't plugged in it. Was that simple Dan. How did I not see that Pam tries to reassure him? Mary Pickford was here. We were all a bit distracted. It did keep the faith Filo when a third opportunity knocks a few weeks later Filo is determined to answer the call this time. FILC who radio in Philadelphia. They they they want to license the Patents Fund our research. But it'll still be ours with some help Vilo at Phil Co so in Philadelphia moving from the bay area to the city of brotherly love. What do you think it sounds great? And so the Farnsworth family packed packed their bags with their belongings precious equipment and board a train to head across the country to Philadelphia Pennsylvania. His family counting on him. Kylo could only pray he was making the right decision.

"You're listening to the spoken edition of the San Francisco Chronicle. Mcclements estate football champion for three years in a row Oakland. Michael peters. Didn't waste words. A three peat is hard. The McClements football coach said after accepting the CIF for a division state bowl championship trophy Saturday at Laney college, the journey may have been hard. But the warriors made things look relatively easy on the field after the Clemens defense held Garfield Los Angeles to twenty two yards in the first half the offense took over in the second half. Jomar Julian rushed for one hundred seventy seven yards on twenty carries and freshman quarterback Dray in Paul through for a pair of touchdowns as the warriors rolled to thirty to six triumph. Mcclements twelve to becomes the third program to win three consecutive CIF bowls. The warriors are the first public school to do it and the first to win each bowl in a different division. The warriors claimed a five eight title in two thousand sixteen and a five AA title last season. Daily Al concord, which won four straight open division, crowns from two thousand nine to two thousand twelve and central Catholic Modesto division for two thousand twelve to fourteen are the other programs in the club for Peter's and the program the third title was possibly the toughest in addition to graduation taking a major toll on the roster. The warriors also had to deal with the loss of longtime assistant and equipment manager dean Hodges who passed away before the season. We said we were going to set out and do it for him said Peters who claimed Hodges as one of his closest friends. This isn't my best team, but they sold out and dug deep in their hearts and pulled out a win for him while the warriors defense was dominant from the get go the offense manage to six points in the first half. Garfield thirteen to tied the game six six midway through the third quarter on a seventy six yard drive that was aided by a pair of fifteen yard penalties. Mclennan's answered on the next possession driving forty two yards in seven plays and scoring on Addy Anderson's one. Yard dive for a twelve six lead. After forcing a punt the warriors tacked on another quick score. When Julian broke free for a seventy five yard run. I ran through the whole I saw the two defenders over pursuing. So I cut back. The senior running back said it was an instinct of move Peters wasn't surprised by the Ron or Julian's night as a whole he's just a grown, man. That's all I can tell you the coach said he runs hard. I'm still shocked that a lot of schools haven't come in offered him a scholarship, but they will Julian tacked on two point run for a six lead after three quarters. The warriors got a twenty six yard touchdown pass from Paul today. The Sanders and a second touchdown run. Twenty yards from Anderson to close out the scoring Paul finished with just one hundred forty two yards on ten of seventeen passing. Montreal Smith had an interception and fumble recovery for the warriors defense all of us wanted this Julian said all of us wanted that three Pete. We all had the drive to win this game all of that heart together, and we came out as a strong. Team chase. Bryson is a freelance writer.

Thompson won the game on a strong put BAC of his miss after he scored he flexed his forearm in a fiery display. We usually don't get from the most laid back of the warriors main men. There was a buzz in the media about Thomson's display is he more demonstrative because he needs to be with Steph curry and dream on. Green both injured during the team's internal spat is he taking more of a leadership role is he feeling his prowess as he approaches neck summer's free agency. Why was he so animated Thomson explained knowing it's the last year in oracle? I'm just trying to enjoy every night and play with as much passion as I can. He said because I know it'll go by like that he snapped his fingers I won't be able to play in front of the same people, obviously. And the warriors will no longer be in the East Bay. So that helps me a lot Thompson said just realizing this is such a special ocupation. And we're so blessed with the crowd. We always have it so easy to get up. When there are twenty thousand people here every night and were selling out. I don't take it for granted. And knowing I was here when we kind of built this thing. It makes me enjoy it even more.

What money can buy and what it can't one enduring lesson nearly fourteen years covering Gulf, the chronicle not much compares to Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson playing alongside each other.

Electrified Augusta National in the final round of the two thousand nine masters, even if they both alternately faltered, they're pairing three years later at Pebble Beach where Mickelson uncommonly crushed woods in the final round created similar buzz friendly reminder about Friday's much-hyped pay per view match.

This is November in Las Vegas. Not April and Augusta. It just doesn't matter. Sports captivates us. Because the games are meaningful authentic. Well, maybe not in baseball steroid era and unpredictable, but everything about Friday's made for television event seems forced scripted and even a bit slimy. Take several cringe worthy moments during Tuesday's promotional news conference woods and Mickelson who for years had zero use free other tossed out flowery compliments as if they were lifelong best buddies near the end of the session Mickelson said without laughing. It will be a major championship intensity on Friday, then to complete this theater of the absurd. Woods and Mickelson complied with a request for a stoic face to face staredown like two heavyweight boxers. Please Friday's matches about money naturally. A vehicle for people who are crazy rich to become even richer, the two best golfers of their generation are trying to squeeze out more revenue before they fade from public view. Mickelson is forty eight and woods turns forty three next month. They each one a PD tour event this year for the first time since two thousand thirteen making.

All the news that fits the bottom of the birdcage by Scott, Osler what the warriors must do. Now is twisted the narrative, so. What the warriors must do. Now is twisted the narrative, so the so called turmoil and discord is all in the minds of critics in haters and the attackers only strengthened the warriors team bond. Draymond green is the perfect man to lead this counterattack. This has been bothering me and admittedly. I'm not strong on payroll economics. The raiders have three first round draft picks. First rounders, get hefty contracts won't signing three first rounders forced the raiders to scrimp on the rest of their roster. The Mavericks are a lottery team, but I fear any team that has shooting coach who can raise the Andre Jordan's free-throw percentage from fifty eight last season two eighty two. Now that weird update in my column speculating that DeMarcus cousins might be a better fit for the warriors. And Kevin Durant. If it's one or the other I should have noted that even if Durant leaves it's doubtful. The warriors could resign cousins. He would have to accept a.

"You're listening to the spoken edition of the San Francisco Chronicle. Could Draymond green versus Kevin Durant. Make the warrior stronger, Draymond green might have thrown his team into momentary crisis this week. But he also threw down the gauntlet to the rest of the league on Thursday after a team shoot around in Houston. If you're one of those other twenty nine teams in the league, you've gotta beat us. Green said in his first statement since being suspended for his argument with Kevin Durant. We not going to beat us. We're going to continue to do what we do. If you think you saw something before good luck with us. Now, we're not going to crumble off of an argument any may be right because the fairytale that the warriors have been living for the past few years is made up of living breathing ego driven players who are individually worth GDP of small countries. So of course, there are behind the scenes disputes and clashes this drama may have opened a much-needed steam valve may have released. Some of the pressure may have put everyone's cards on the table instead of having questions of free agency and player surpremacy lurking. In the background. This may make everyone take a hard look at themselves. Do we wanna be individual countries? Or do we want to show strength in numbers? Just us. This whole week has had the feeling of a past the area dispute Joe Montana versus DVR with a hint of adolescent, girl. Twilight mania team Jacob or team Edward do. We have to pick sides do the teammates have to pick sides. Probably not the members of the team have been living with these personalities and issues for longer than they've been exposed publicly the ability of green and Durant to walk into practice together on Thursday, talk fist-bump shoot together and play together against the rockets. Doesn't mean this is over not by a long shot. Green has reportedly appealed his fine. His harsh punishment this week by Steve Kerr and general manager. Bob Myers suspended one game without pay may continue to not him. Why was he punished so severely by leaders who have gone out of their way to have his back? It leads one to believe that Monday nights. Outburst wasn't an isolated incident. And that green has been pushing the envelope for awhile. Maybe even been warned repeatedly the encored incident that unleash this storm wasn't particularly noteworthy green was in the right on the court Duran looked selfish on the court. But it was the word set on the bench that revealed the Fisher. It's no secret. I'm emotional. Green said I wear my emotions on my sleeve. Sometimes it gets the best of me, and it doesn't work in my favor. But I live with that because works to the good more as my resume shows though, he vowed not to change on Thursday. Green was far more open and conciliatory in his comments than Durant was the other night. Durant may continue to carry a grudge. That's something. He's pretty good at basketball teams are studies and collective psychology. And the warriors have always had potentially combustible elements. Durant notoriously has thin skin. Green is an expert at finding the thinnest part of anyone skin to see if he can Pierce it. Both men are elite grudge holders and go out of their way to find things to feel. Victimized about to fuel them. I've had my own standoff with green I didn't understand why I was being frozen out. He was angry over something. I wrote and our relationship was initially rectified through a sitdown orchestrated by a warriors employee emotional and intense green is a warrior through and through a combination player assistant, general manager, welcome wagon Durant. In contrast is aloof. He is both by his arrival through free agency and his personality. More of an outsider green probably more than anyone else on the team has been irritated by the sense. That Durant is holding teams future hostage to his pending free agency. I've read a lot is this the end of the run did I ruin it. Or did I force Kevin to leave green said at the end of the day, whatever Kevin decides to do what clay decides we had great years together. I support everyone wholeheartedly one hundred percent as a man as a human being you've got the right to do what you wanna do with your life. Yes. That was the past tense. We had great years. Together. So maybe Durant does leave and maybe green will alternately be part of the reason. But maybe as most people are beginning to assume Durant was going to leave anyway. And this incident just got the issue out in the open put it on the dinner table where the family can deal with it. But this season isn't the past tense. It's the present. And maybe green is right instead of being gleeful that the warriors are in crisis. Maybe the rest of the league has to be even more worried about them now and Killian is a San Francisco Chronicle columnist Email a Killian SF chronicle dot com Twitter at an Killian.

"You're listening to the spoken edition of the San Francisco Chronicle. Good news for as ballpark plans. But don't pop the champagne yet by Scotto slur for sports. Good news for as fans, I think I asked team president Dave cavalier. Do the ace still expect to pick a ballpark site. By the end of this year's your promised. The answer delivered by Catherine anchor team vice president of communications and community. We are still on track to announce our plan by the end of the year. That's big v as need to make that pick the Coliseum site or Howard terminal on schedule if they hope to open their ballpark for the twenty twenty three season. Kvass update is good news considering the as recent complaints about lack of response to their efforts to negotiate for use of the Coliseum property. Don't pop the champagne corks yet with any as ballpark talk. There usually are huge gaps in information and ugly. Historical references. I have no doubt that the as will announce their side by the end of the. A year says longtime pro sports executive Andy Dollah JR. My favorite skeptic. They did. So in two thousand six for Cisco field in two thousand nine for deer. It unstained in two thousand eleven for victory court in two thousand thirteen for Coliseum city and in two thousand seventeen for parole to college rim shot please all at stake is the future of the team in Oakland any major delay or setback in ballpark plans. We'll have a domino effect if the as fall behind or off their twenty twenty three opening timetable that is likely to collide with their promise to goose team payroll to a respectable level thus jeopardizing their hold onto the stars of the future. Like, Mike Chapman stars of the future. Tend to align themselves with teams that have a future Chapman just finished his first full season in the big leagues and to be in his prime in twenty twenty three. If ballpark plans lag or fall through Chapman's future in Oakland grows. Him think positive as fans and ignore Dollah? Who tells me I'll meet you at the gondola in two thousand twenty three.

"You're listening to the spoken edition of the San Francisco Chronicle. Oakland mayor on what went wrong with the raiders by Scotto slur from sports. The happy feet raiders are nearing the end of their most recent stay in Oakland, and who's to blame for owner. Mark Davis moving his team to Las Vegas. Not Oakland says mayor Libby, chef I had a recent phone conversation with chaff who is up for reelection Tuesday, and is considered the favourite. The interview was regarding the as and their search for a site for a new ballpark in Oakland. When our as discussion ended, I said, can I ask you a raiders question? They should not have traded Khalil Mack chef shot back the curse of the MAC. I think the raiders are suffering from the MAC curse shaft who was elected mayor in two thousand fourteen was born and raised in Oakland and said, she's always cheered for the local teams through her first three years in office. Shaft tried to negotiate with the raiders on a new stadium at the Coliseum site in April last year, the raiders announced their NF. Fell sanctioned decision to move to Las Vegas. My question to the mayor. Do you think the raiders made a good faith effort to stay in Oakland? Hell no shaft shot back unequivocally. No. There was no good faith there at all. So owner Mark Davis seemed dead set on moving his team to Vegas deadset. No effort whatsoever. I can't speak to the time before I was mayor. And I want to recognize that the raiders I think when I came in as mayor. There was a lot of years of legitimate frustration that they were feeling but during my time as mayor no good faith efforts were made. No every plan through the years has been complicated. By the fact, that the Coliseum land is owned jointly by the city and county. And by the fact that the raiders a showed little or no interest in working with one. Another also any deal, including proposals with outside developers would have required using part of the site for commercial development which Davis opposed but chef was aggressive in pursuing a deal between the time. She took office. In January twenty fifteen and Davis final decision to move to Las Vegas in January twenty sixteen the mayor brought plans and ideas to the table, but the raiders were not eager participants. I Ashraf whether it bothered her that she and Oakland officials have been cast in the role of villains by Davis. And some of his team's fans for not trying hard enough to keep the team. You know, honestly, I have been pleasantly surprised chef said, I think that actually the residents of Oakland had been refreshingly supportive, and understanding that the city took a principled stand. And while we were all sad that we lost our beloved team. We did. So in principle, I actually have been encouraged by the amount of understanding, and in many ways support that I got from how I handled the matter chef is probably getting even more support these days as the raiders are in freefall with they want a seven record and head coach Jon Gruden presiding over what looks more each day like a complete rebuild the benefits of which won't be much. Good to Oakland fans since the raiders are likely to move. Out after the season when they're Coliseum. Lease expires. I mentioned a shaft that Davis had a few years ago that he would be happy to build a no frills stadium in Oakland for under a billion dollars. And now his team's share of the new Vegas stadium. Costs will probably approach what he would have spent to stay in Oakland shaft said how we were going to finance the new stadium in Oakland was through more development on the giant surface parking lot, which he refused to give up a single parking space. And I understand that they're not going to have the parking spaces at the Vegas stadium. So again, I think there is ample evidence that there was not a good faith effort to stay because the deal that we presented with Ronnie Lott was an absolutely viable shuffle ready deal that the raiders walked away from did that shocker. Yes. Yes. I shouldn't say I was completely shot because the raiders had stonewalled for the entire time that I was mayor, but the NFL allowed them to do that when their own league policy state that they're going to give the hallmark it every chance to be successful. That was surprising. And that was very disappointing. The raiders through team president Mark Bayden declined to respond to shafts comments. Multiple sources told me that Davis rejected any plan or proposal at the Coliseum site. If that plan called for one less parking space than is. Currently there Coliseum site has about eight thousand parking spaces, the new Las Vegas stadium will have fewer than three thousand spaces on site. According to the Las Vegas sun. There will be fourteen thousand spaces offsite with most fans shuttling to the stadium. The lot proposal backed by predominantly African American group of investors and initially given NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell's stamp of approval would have set aside fifteen acres for the as if they chose to stay at the Coliseum site. The group plan to build hotels and restaurants on the site. The city would kick in two hundred million dollars for infrastructure. The raiders did not actively participate in those negotiations. Oakland ficials have said that before the raiders announced their moved to Las Vegas. The city had not been able to meet direct. With Davis for more than a year in a dear John letter to Oakland. Goodell said a key sticking point was Oakland refusal to tell the as to take a hike. Davis has said that what finalized his decision to move to Vegas was Oakland tripling the raiders rent at the Coliseum in early twenty sixteen after the league shot down the raiders attempt to move to Los Angeles. So the team owner who was aggressively attempting to move his team to LA was angered by the perceived disloyalty of Oakland and its mayor.

"You're listening to the spoken edition of the San Francisco Chronicle. Warriors must pay forty million dollars in Reno debt to Oakland. Alameda County judge rules by Megan Cassidy from sports the Golden State Warriors must pay off the estimated forty million dollars in remaining debt incurred by Oakland and Alameda County for renovations to oracle arena. And arbitrator has ruled a nineteen ninety six demolition and redesign of the arena's interior cost about one hundred fifty million dollars to be paid over a thirty year period since then the Oakland Alameda County Coliseum authority has collected an annual payment from the basketball team of seven point four million dollars to help pay off the debt, but warriors are departing for San Francisco in twenty nineteen and team leaders had planned to stop making payments at that time attorneys for the city and county argued the NBA champions were trying to scuttle the remaining debt and both sides agreed to let an arbitrator make the final call. We are pleased by today's ruling and believe that it's the warriors not the Oakland and Alameda County taxpayers who should repay this debt. Call ASEAN authority chair and Alameda County. Supervisor Nate Miley said in a statement, we issued these bonds in nineteen ninety six in collaboration with the team and with an agreement in place. We've simply asked the warriors to honor their agreement. The disputes came down to the interpretation of nineteen ninety six contract signed by the warriors and the Coliseum authority. The joint powers entity created to finance and manage the sports complex. That's also home to the as and raiders essentially, the disagreement was over the side's interpretation of the word terminates the paragraph at issue says that if the warriors terminate the agreement prior to twenty twenty seven they are obligated to pay the outstanding project that an court filing attorneys hired by the team said that Klaus would apply only if the warriors were actually terminating the contract, rather they said they are allowing the agreement to expire in June twenty nine. Eighteen as they depart for San Francisco judge Rebecca westerfield, the arbitrator in the case noted in her ruling that warriors president Rick welts testified that the team's decision to leave. The arena was a deliberate choice. This action by the warriors deliberately electing not to exercise an option and thus bringing the license agreement to an end can be construed as a termination for any reason westerfield wrote and her Thursday ruling attorneys for the warriors and the Coliseum authority were made aware of the decision Monday. This was an after the fact attempt by the warriors to rewrite the party's deal, and it would have left the people of Oakland. Alameda County holding the bag Daniel pursell and attorney for the city and county said in a statement warrior spokeswoman Lisa Goodwin said the team obviously disagreed with the arbitrators interpretation of the license agreement. Of course, we are reviewing our options at this time. She said in a statement. But as we've always said, we will fulfil any debt obligations that we owe.
