Coronavirus stimulus: Lawmakers unveil $908 billion bipartisan relief proposal
"A new coronavirus fiscal stimulus package are resuming in Washington during a Senate Banking Committee hearing Tuesday, Fed chair Jerome Powell called the economic outlook extraordinarily uncertain and the economic downturn has not fallen equally on all Americans and those least able to bear to shoulder. The burden have been hardest hit. The latest proposal hit the table $900 billion, said to be a bipartisan compromise. Because it does include 160 billion for state and local governments. The White House and Senate Republicans have in the past offered zero for that, while Democrats have been pushing for several 100 billion Treasury Secretary Steven Yushin, once overall limited help. Based upon the recent economic data, I continue to believe that a targeted fiscal package is the most appropriate federal response, Senator Sherrod Brown of Ohio those slams the administration's response and said it's time for bold action, not retreat.

Relief package and today more than thirty democrats are getting behind a new push to extend expiring unemployment benefits for twelve million workers before they go away at the end of the year. Virginia senator mark warner is leading this effort with a letter to the leadership of both parties. That says letting these payments lapsed during the holiday season would be cruel and that it would hit the services sector and the art especially hard. The letter says these workers are all facing job loss. It has nothing to do with their skills abilities or performance now there have been some preliminary conversations in the senate on bipartisan measures. That might be able to pass alongside the government funding bill next week and so this letter is just one indication.

B. I. I'm not talking the ninety nine percent I mean the one percent at the main base and justice the art of Robert F. Kennedy building what is there in their mind that we look for reasons to exonerate the Democrats but we look for reasons to implicate the Republicans what is what I think a lot of a bill has to do with what I call the permanent political class I mean Joe Biden is is you know he's older now but he's basically been a permanent fixture in Washington for forty years a guy like Donald Trump is going to calm I don't don trump's gonna stay in Washington DC when he leaves the White House he's gonna leave so there's a club atmosphere is by bipartisan it's the permanent political class and the reason that you don't have some Republicans warning to investigate Joe Biden is either their family is involved in some level of similar activity order hoping to at some point so this kind of the unwritten rule that we don't go after a prominent political figures and that's the reason we need to be shouting this from the rooftops we need to exposing it because here's the thing voters care about this stuff it's the reason I'm convinced that trump won in twenty sixteen and even though I think Bernie's ideas are are completely wrong for the country what's fueling his candidacy is the same anger at the corrupt establishment in Washington DC if if something universal on both sides of the aisle let's talk about your work on Bernie Sanders until your research about the hundreds of tens of millions of dollars to a mysterious company linked to his wife many thought he was a socialist who wants a revolution let's face it is a communist he wants the by violent means overthrow the United States government which is the definition of a revolution he wants fundamental change he wants the U. S. government to seize the assets of hospitals oil companies pharmaceuticals and so one would think that a guy like that is not really concerned about money he's a Ben and Jerry kind of a guy but in reality what did you find about how Bernie Sanders monetize socialism for his benefit but not ours you mentioned you know that that that sort of this is is a you know communist leanings I mean it's like the old Brezhnev stays in the Soviet Union you had them talking about world while pollution in the proletariat but they all had five deals in corrupt deals live like kings and Bernice case you know he's worth millions of dollars some of that came from writing books he's actually written more books and he's actually introduced pieces of legislation that if passed but a lot of people don't realize it more than half a million dollars of his own campaign funds have gone to buying his own book but the bigger the bigger issue bill is this this this dirty little secret about washing call media buying and and Bernie Sanders's latched on to this yeah if you were running for the Senate in the state of Ohio and you said Peter I want you to do my media buys by my TV and radio I get a commission of C. off of that it could be anywhere from ten to fifteen percent goes to the media buyer in the beauty of it is that doesn't show up anywhere in Federal Election Commission records you don't know who the media buyers well here's what Bernie did she saw this and what did he do when he started running for Congress left of the Senate he put his wife in charge of the media by which means she's got the commission even though she had no background in advertising and media buying any of this stuff so we know that she and Bernie we received hundreds of thousands of dollars by doing that and the great mystery comes to the twenty sixteen election will Bernice dropped eighty three million dollars on media buys so that means the commission somewhere between eight million and twelve million dollars where did it go well it went through a company called old town media old town media did not have a website did not have other clients it was registered to a home in the coldest sack in suburban Virginia all in the two owners of old town media were long time friends of James Sanders yeah he was after she heard Jane was asked about this by a progressive reporter in twenty sixteen what do you know about old town media do you have any connection to old town media and are you involved in this in any way and according to the professor reporter Jane Sanders just hung up the phone room of what happened to the twelve million dollars who got the media commission on that we just don't know what it's million ends is a little bit of money he monetizes the campaign so those are contribute to thirty six dollars each to the to the Sanders campaign have got to understand that goes into a pot and out of the pot comes all the media buys and that's how the Sanders family gets paid yeah and then the other thing that I think people need to know is that you know Bernie Sanders has been very clear cut in people calling the left kind of you Mister John the Baptist progressive movement why he's out of eating locusts and honey well you know he's worth millions of dollars he actually has an investment portfolio and when you look at his investment portfolio I hate to break this to you bill I know this is going to shock you he's not invested in like renewable energy companies he's not invested in you know some organic farm I mean he's invested in fortune five hundred stock that's where his investment portfolio is it's not a socially responsible investment fund that's where his investments are in when you set up you know we bought his third home the vacation home they set it up in the trust precisely to avoid paying some taxes so you know Bernie Sanders is not John the Baptist use is is more like a qualified king Herod at least in the way that is that he handles his investments in his own money let's move on to Lizabeth Warren she is picturing yourself as a every woman she knows exactly how you live your life she spent time a course in Oklahoma and then and she monetized her so called Indian heritage and I probably have more Indian blood to me than she does she use all along but you have great reporting on how she a really bad millions of dollars from corporations even though she rants and raves against corporate America how to Elizabeth Warren maker money our records network is around twelve million dollars they pay well at Harvard Law School they don't pay that well so the question becomes how did you make that money and so we re traced this we went through and found that in the mid nineteen nineties Elizabeth one was hired by the U. S. Congress and paid by us the taxpayers to help Congress to rewrite some of the bankruptcy laws okay she's a lawyer that makes sense they hire her they tend to do this whole ideas are incorporated into the bankruptcy code then what does she do bill she goes to large corporations Dow chemical and others and says you hire me as a consultant and I will help you navigate around the law I actually wrote genius is very corrupt moves and other people in Washington is done have done this she's denounced other people that have done this but she ended up working for Dow chemical Armstrong world wide a whole host of large corporations who are facing class action lawsuit towards and she was helping them minimize their exposure that's obvious a legitimate thing to do but the fact that she says I've been fighting for the little guy my entire life is simply not true she made millions of dollars helping the big guy large corporations slip out of responsibilities as it related to people who were damaged by the products those companies have produced you don't fall a few nights ago I'm watching Chris Matthews every now and then is a lucid moment and he was ranting and raving about socialism the evil socialism is because all over the world any referenced Ohio senator Sherrod brown that Sherrod brown is the kind of person that we need there because he looks after the little guys a union guy so Sherrod brown is being promoted by the mainstream media as kind of Bernie Sanders light and you've investigated were weren't shared brown gets his money from where is it that's very interesting shirt brown he always been in public life since you graduate from college he ran for the state legislature he listed himself he was still a senior at Yale when he ran for office he listed himself bill as a farmer under our occupation I don't know what kind of form he
Senate Democrats Meet With Reporters Discussing Impeachment Trial
"This morning about eleven Senate Democrats met with reporters I made these remarks everybody how to be joined by my colleagues this morning now as everyone knows for months now we Democrats have relentlessly asked to hear from well with relevant witnesses and review relevant documents in this trial for a very simple reason this is about truth and today the Senate will vote on whether witnesses and documents are allowed in this trial the importance of this vote is self evident trials have witnesses trials have documents the vote today is about whether the Senate will have a fair trial the president of the United States so it's deeply disturbing that on something of such importance to the future of our democracy a few of my Republican colleagues announced last night they vote against hearing additional evidence it's clear with the American people stand on the issue Republican senators who decide to go against the will of the people we'll have to reckon with that the result of today's vote is still an open question but I would note that even in senator Alexander statement announcing his opposition to new evidence he said that it was proven that the president did what he was accused of he came to the wrong conclusion about hearing evidence in this trial that's clear but senator Alexander senior Senate Republican retiring member said out loud but I think most Senate Republicans believe in private that yes resident did withhold military assistance try to get you bring to help him in his election and yes the president did interfere with congressional investigations of that misconduct he said yes the president condition foreign aid and a White House meeting with an ally at war on the performance of the bogus investigations that would help his reelection Alexander rejected ninety percent of the argument from the president's council that the president did nothing wrong he acknowledged that the president did something for the founders feared most the potential corruption of our national elections by a foreign power to listed by none other than our own president and to hide that gross misconduct the White House exhausted every legal trick in the book to prevent Congress from investigating if my Republican colleagues refused to even consider witnesses and documents in this trial this country is headed towards the greatest cover up since Watergate if my Republican colleagues refused to even consider witnesses and documents in the trial what will the president concludes we all know including can do it again and Congress can do nothing about it he can try to cheat in his election again something that eat at the roots of our democracy and one more point point I've been making for week it for weeks what is most relevant today if my Republican colleagues refused to consider witnesses and documents in this trial the president's acquittal will be meaningless because it will be the result of a sham trial if there are no witnesses no documents in this trial there will be a permanent asterisk next to the acquittal of president trump written in permanent ink so Senate Republicans face a choice today between seeking the truth I bring it up between a fair trial and of course between country and part no matter what the results of today's vote I believe the truth will eventually come out my Republican colleagues should think about that before they both today the truth the truth venture we come out we could go to see the truth in this trial or it could come out in a few weeks a few months and on that day every Republican who voted to hide the truth in an impeachment trial the president will have to answer for senator Murray Chuck Schumer thank you know since the news first broke about the president's call to pressure the Ukrainian president to investigate his political rival Democrats have made very clear we need to approach this fairly transparently and in a way that allows all of the facts to come out we didn't want to be in this position position no one does but as the severity of the potential violations became clear we insisted the investigation and trial I pulled American values that we and our constituents hold dear trials should have evidence and witnesses no one is above the law and every public service first loyalty should be to the people of this country not a political party or figure actually what we have seen from our Republican colleagues has straight straight dangerously far from those very basic principles they stuck their heads in the sand when presented with an overwhelming case illustrating the president's skilled these put themselves into knots trying to claim that they needed more time before voting on whether to hear witnesses and evidence and then said hearing your testimony or review viewing your information would just take too long and now tonight all signs point to a rush to cradle of an impeached president not because there wasn't enough evidence there is already and everything including the president's own ETS and statements and eight Mister Jeff that more exists the reason that we are expecting a rush to court our president trump tonight is because Senate Republicans are about to make a terrible choice they're about to dismiss this with a shrug and who cares rather than with the liberation and substance it's so it's certainly warrants they're about to choose a cover up rather than a fair trial and put president trump before the United States of America so this morning we are asking Senate Republicans one final time don't make that terrible choice choose our country choose our national security shoot choose our democratic institutions and choose the rule of law if you still somehow have doubts about the evidence for house presented both for a fair trial with witnesses and evidence if you have no doubts and just want to prove Democrats wrong do the same for the sake of showing the Senate can fulfill its responsibility if for no other reason but do not make this trial a cover up just to avoid hearing the truth you don't think you'll like because everyone in this country we'll hear it sooner or later the full truth will come out and each of us will for ever own our decisions about whether or not we're on the right side of it we've got an opportunity tonight for a fair trial finishers we have as much information as possible before making that decision let's not waste thank you senator Murray senator Sherrod brown thank
Dems say oust Trump or he'll betray again; 'He is who he is'
"In closing remarks vote against the president and your head will be on a pike house impeachment manager Adam Schiff says he doesn't know if it's true that a trump insider gave that warning but he used it to allege that trump was acting like a king there was an angry response on the Senate floor lawmakers shaking their heads no and Oklahoma Republican senator James Lankford saying the comment was insulting all these Republicans live in fear the present that there had will be applied not true but Democrat Sherrod brown of Ohio says colleagues have confided in him they're afraid of retribution if they cross president trump this president might come into their states in campaign against the will call the names are there's a palpable fear Jackie Quinn Washington
Colorado’s Jason Crow will help prosecute Trump in Senate
"As house Democrats work through the weekend to prepare for the Senate trial perhaps the most unexpected impeachment manager is congressman Jason crow he's a former army ranger and attorney who slipped a Republican seat to win in Colorado and he went from not supporting anti blows his bid for house speaker to becoming one of her choices to prosecute the case against president trump joining me now is Colorado congressman Jason crow conocen thank you so much for being here morning good to be on out so just last night and you saw this the trump legal team put out a skating six six page response to your impeachment trial memo calling impeachment quote brazen and unlawful quote highly partisan and reckless and it says the president trump categorically and unequivocally denies each and every allegation and it says that neither article of impeachment even constitutes an impeach an impeachable offense at all what's your response to that well my responses here this fits the president's power you know he he continues to deflect off of his own behavior trying to attack the messenger my immediate responses yeah let's call the witnesses that you know he has said that his call was a perfect call he said that he's done nothing wrong so let's have the people that are in the best position to confirm that come in and testify before the U. S. Senate that's what over seventy percent of the American people are asking for the president deserves a fair trial the American people deserve a fair trial so let's have that fair trial when you found out your impeachment manager was a complete surprise to you I was surprised I I hadn't been a lobbying for this it was called in to speak speak with the leadership and you know I was surprised to be asked that was humbled to be asked to represent my colleagues in the at the house of representatives in the country I during this really important trial and as I just mentioned in twenty nineteen you did not support speaker Pelosi as she sought the speakership I wonder now in retrospect now you are one of these key Democrats in impeachment do you feel differently about the judgment that she's displayed through this process well I've always had a fantastic relationship with speaker Pelosi and she's done a really great job over the past year navigating the house through a very difficult very challenging time you know she's a lead in a very very thoughtful way and I think what the selection of these managers shows is that politics doesn't play a part in the speaker has wanted to put a team together that represents the diversity of this country the diversity of the caucus who can bring the case make the case that regarding National Security abuse of power and and all the things the president did in and make that case in a good way you want witnesses do you want love parn Asti indicted associate of Rudy Giuliani has provided a bunch of documents some of which are incredibly helpful for Democrats but he's maybe someone with a credibility issue to say the least well I'm not going to get into any one particular witness that I can say the managers are meeting and talking regularly I with our team the considering who are the best witnesses to bring that case we have to look at the entire universe of potential witness it is it on the table because senator Sherrod brown just said that he assumes that would be someone Democrats want to hear from you all of the relevant witnesses are on the table you know what we have to do is make sure we have documents to you this can't be the first a trial in American history the first impeachment trial in American history where we don't have documents and witnesses produced by the president could you use documents from love are not without hearing testimony from one part of that is a possibility I mean that we yeah but we have to do is we have to assess all the time both documents and witnesses and in many instances like any trial documents are a great way to assess credibility but if you include documents and not the testimony then people will say it's because you don't think that the witnesses credible well all of this is based on the Senate allowing witnesses you know we can talk about hypotheticals all day long about which witnesses to call when the call on whether or not to have witnesses or documents or documents the crop right those witnesses all of those type of kind of but all of this goes back to the Senate allowing witnesses in this in a long documents that is the Senate's decision because the jurors in this case the senators are both the Trier of fact but they also established the rules so it's time for them to establish fair rules do you think the president trump committed bribery yeah I think that the president did a lot of things that I've used his power of bribery yeah it is difficult yeah it is specifically you know he did attempt to bribe and of course a foreign government official in the why is why isn't that an article you know we have to look look at the entire context of what happened here yeah that's what this is about this is about the abuse of power it's about jeopardizing our national security our troops it's about undermining our free and fair elections you know the broad context of the pattern of this president is what's really important and that's why we proceeded with impeachment you could have had bribery is an article and then abuse of power is an article for instance Alan Dershowitz is going to argue on the Senate floor as he basically just stated that I mean you bribery is in the constitution when it comes to impeachment he will argue or will certainly feel that you Democrats would have had a much better case to actually see bribery if he thought it was bribery you all said bribery there's been talking points where Democrats are saying this is bribery and yet it wasn't an article of impeachment was that a mistake considering what Alan Dershowitz is going to argue no absolutely not you know let's let's broaden back out here and talk about what's really going on here that the president's team is trying to say you know that the president can't be indicted because it's DOJ policy that is standing president are sitting president can't be indicted at the same time there also making arguments that the house of representatives in Congress cannot subpoena documents to witnesses and we can't bring an impeachment case that you know it has to be a crime it that high crimes and misdemeanors do not do not include abuse of power and abuse of the public trust so if all of the president's arguments are true that a president can't be indicted that is the abuse of power and abuse of public trust doesn't constitute impeachable offense if that is true then no president can be held accountable that the president truly is above the law so those arguments can't possibly be true they can't stand because in our entire system of checks and balances wouldn't hold congressman decent growth thank you so much for joining us this right have a good

I think the better question is probably why not get in. There's so many people in this field that democratic politicians feel such a low barrier to entry, you know, if they wanna get their idea, at least national prominence and national play they might run for president this show for out the actual even Isla caucuses candidates can enter now any traction. And if they don't they drop out they have nothing collusion if they do. Well, they're running for president. So you know, it's such a low barrier entry I first coming up. So soon you might have run if you think you have something, but really be able to participate in the debates will have raised enough money and name recognition to put him on the debate stage. That'd be a little bit tough. We're couple months in the first debate. And he needs to get sixty five thousand donors you need to get one percent from. Qualified. You know with its harder than you get sixty five thousand donors relatively low threshold. But this candidates have been in the race where these amount of time not yet hit that threshold. I would guess that congress mines best shots onto the base state would be three polls. It's one percent is not an extraordinary number of being a national poll. Early states that if you really buckle down and get, you know, get your early states, and you just hope that enough you're out in the field full. You know, you have shot. The better question is how many people would be on the stage. If we hit twenty candidates on the stage, the cutoff twenty candidates debates is who have been eliminated. I, you know, somebody who doesn't two thousand threshold only polling one maybe two percent is in danger. I'm getting off the stage if there's twenty people qualified he has been front and center with the closing of the GM plant in his congressional district just outside of Youngstown, Ohio.

Congressman Seth Moulton Massachusetts says he's thinking about running and Stacey Abrams who ran for governor of Georgia says she too is thinking about a possible candidacy, so I guess the more the merrier. Yeah. I mean, not even of them thinking about running congressman Eric thinking run from Carrie mccullogh thinking about a run, you know, feels that had a lot of candidates in the race. And we do I think we're up to fifteen may do candidate, you know, about that depending on how you want to describe a major candidate. But still room, you know, five or six more people to get in.

They've done it before they did it during the entirety of the Obama administration. But with one exception, none of the senators running for president like this idea. Here's New Jersey Senator Corey Booker and Vermont's Bernie Sanders, I will personally resist efforts to get rid of them. Now, I'm not crazy about getting rid of the filibuster. Speaking to pods. Save America, New York's Kirsten gillibrand dismissed the idea that democratic priorities couldn't pass unless the filibuster went away. And so if you're not able to get sixty votes on something it just means you how it worked hard enough talking to enough people.

Not going to really get into specific banks, regardless of who is the CEO. So this is where we are the top Bank regulator in this country.

Well, there's a lot of talk about this, including Senator Sherrod Brown democrat from Ohio thinking of his own run for president. And here's Chris Matthews on MSNBC saying, hey, you and Kamala Harris make a good team. Both of you guys are progressives. You can different parts of the country probably different tones to to your ideologies. But probably similar in product in terms of pragmatics. What do you think of that? I don't know. I'm not gonna accommodate chicken. I'll just say I I like Kamla. I was amazed at somebody called her un-american today for a proposal. She had on health insurance that one of the billionaire candidates for president. So I stand with her on that we've stood together on a number of issues. And I think very highly for Sherrod Brown likes it. Sherrod Brown thinks it's it's a great idea. Oh, yeah. Absolutely. Don't give people any any options. Now, just tell them what healthcare they're going to get. And that's all there is to it. But that was yesterday. And this is today. By stating. This has as the story goes she would eliminate private insurance is a necessary part of implementing Medicare for all. Right. This is what she said in that CNN townhall. But if you're our has grown because people like what the hell are you talking about crazy lady? One of her advisers signaled that the candidate would also be open to more moderate health reform plans, which would preserve the industry being voted by other congressional Democrats. So one day she's in favor of the destruction of the healthcare industry and a day later. She's like, oh, maybe not. In the meantime, there are senators coming out there to support her and she's just rolling under the bus. She threw that out there like a trial balloon. All right. Let's see how people are gonna react to this. All right. Well, now, how to dial it back, but will be able to signal to all the hard leftist that. Yeah, that's what we're really all about.

"But they're full shit. And I want somebody with Bernie Sanders ideals, and right now, frankly that that leaves me with Bernie and Elizabeth Warren. Right and. Yeah. And I understand your concerns about Warren. Although I have to say, you know, I, you know, I've kind on the arc with her. I mean, I think I think her policy initiatives that she's put out so far. And you know, I I don't know. I guess I guess I'm old fashioned. I'm a policy guy. I mean, I mean, that's why I mean, I, you know, I I think that it will work is great. I think he'd be a great. Citing. But I, you know, I just I just wanna to see so much more what you actually stands for. And you know, and I I I've even the column about him yet. But I just you know, made some observations on Twitter a month or two ago about that got, you know, got a lot of feedback and everybody was saying, oh, but he's still there was Matic, and you can raise money you can lead. And I get all of that. And you know, and I mean, I guess I guess people were saying the same things about John F Kennedy sixty years ago and all of that. But I don't know. I just feel like you gotta have something you got to show me something on the policy front. I agree. Yeah. Now, I see a lot of people don't though that's the thing. Right. And it's just so interesting. Reading reading the the the messages in the chat room. This is the YouTube chat room. Jill brand fucked up with treatment of Franken. I agree with that. But I think our problems are bigger than that someone said. Yeah. Charisma is way more important than cracking down on corporate corruption. Corruption shaking my head. It's not that it's more important, but you've got to be electable and against Donald Trump. Sorry, you need some kind of charisma. It's not going to be Jeff Merkley who might be a smart guy might be great on policy. But he's boring as hell he's not gonna be able to go up against a Donald Trump. Someone Sherrod Brown is a progressive. I like him like personally, I like them read his policies, people don't educate themselves. That's what kills me. That's what got me about this whole better work thing. Look at his votes read what David Sirotta road. I know. It's it's it's on vogue to criticize David Sirotta today. But he wrote a big article based on Beddoes voting record over three terms in congress, and it comes. Fox. Yeah. I think people's voting records are absolutely are absolutely fair game. They should be discussed. I do. I do think the flip side of that though. I would say I also think that we shouldn't necessarily cast these people in stone from their past. I think we should I think we should give them breathing space to evolve. Like, I I, you know, I could see, you know. I mean, better voting record is not great, right? But then it sucks when you know. But when you look, but when you look at the campaign, he ran for Senate in Texas. Listen to Pino. It was. He listened to the people. Listen, I think he I think he understood does like ice. I think how the, you know, have we certainly the democratic constituency was feeling in you know, so for him like for him. I mean, not that it's the maker break your shoe of all time. But I mean for him to speak frankly about whole Colin Kaepernick situation race with great. I mean that was that was something that was something that ninety nine of out of one hundred political consultants would've like pull them aside in order to not do. But he did it. Anyway, you know, and and I think it does show. It does show that people can change the false. I think that's I think that's the equation for voters. They have to decide it's like, you you shouldn't you shouldn't. And you can't ignore somebody's record. Because that gives you some indication of who they really are. But I think you also can't and should give them a little room to of all that, you know, because you know, our politics are evolving, you know. I mean, you know, I mean when when..
"sherrod brown" Discussed on Reliable Sources with Brian Stelter
"And welcome back to the reliable sources podcast and Brian Stelter here with Connie Schultz, the columnist and journalism professor who is married to Senator Sherrod Brown cutting. Thanks for joining me again. I wanna talk to you about the way some of the twenty twentieth. Speculations already happening some of the stories about possible. Tender's you've been outspoken about some some of the way these stories are being framed, you know, big picture view of this when reporters right about democratic candidates are there certain misnomers or or misconceptions that come up again. And again, I know all about the rights criticism of the press, but there's Chris from the left as well. And I wonder if you have critiques of how Dem's are covered by the mainstream media. Well, I certainly. I what I worry about is. We're going to do what we did in fifteen sixteen. I remember being on a panel discussion led by Chuck Todd in Cleveland the day before the first Republican debate in Cleveland. Remember that beckoned fifteen and Trump was the big joke. But everybody wanted to talk about Trump, and I was getting a little frustrated because I'm in the battleground state of Ohio, we've got John casick who suddenly everybody's describing as a moderate. I covered them for years. And I knew it wasn't a moderate. And and I felt like that the narrative was getting away from us pretty quickly. And it was going to be all Trump all the time. I'm not blaming the media solely for what happened in terms of elevating Donald Trump in the minds of voters, but we certainly were engaged in that at a level. I'd never seen before. And for me the crux of it for me came when I was invited to be on a show on MSNBC during that year. And I I'm very fond of many people there. They were in Cleveland. Could I come on the show could we so we are at a coffee shop waited the entire hour because they cited to go and cover dot. Trump's speech live just a candidate speech in the middle of the day, the whole thing and the the host was frustrated. I was certainly frustrated was a waste of my time. I never went on. And it wasn't about me getting airtime. I don't I tend to say no more often than yes to television. But what worried me as well of MSNBC is doing this. I can only imagine what it's looking like over at FOX. We got really Namur of this quotable nonsense that was that he was engaging in. And I don't think we saw how could get away from us. And once and I do think there was a lot of series coverage of him before the election. But we that ball was already so big and as a bolder in it's rolling down the hill. And we're trying to stop and say way shove that aside. Here's what we ought to be looking at it. And I think it was too late for a lot of it. I'd like to not do that. Again. I'd like us in this would like it to be not first of all every time. Donald Trump wants to insult somebody's intelligence or appearance, or you know, this is all coming. Can we do more? It's a fact he said it we. To cover him. I really do believe that. But we also have responsibility to try to focus more on issues. I know we say this every presidential campaign, Brian. But if we have not learned that lesson from sixteen and I worry when we have for example, the coverage about comparing Elizabeth Warren, for example to Hillary Clinton right away. Why because they're the females that that's not a reason to to meet be comparing them. And fortunately, a lot of reporters who have covered both of them started pushing back on Twitter when that political headline came out the idea that Trump sucked up all the oxygen in two thousand sixteen. I do wonder if that's going to be repeated. Now, I wonder if he's going to be able to frame the democratic race, for example by attacking Warren or attacking others. Then too often the story becomes Trump insults or Trump is in a feud with blink. When in fact, they're not feuding, Trump assistant salting them. Right. And I think that way down in the story. You can say with the latest insult. He's got. Right. I don't think we should ignore it. But but I think, but also frankly, I was just ask yesterday by somebody who was she was doing a store and she wanted to know what is our role in candidates, helping them get their message out..

"And this weekly podcast is our chance to talk in depth with media leaders and newsmakers. But how the media really works and what we can do better. So let's start the year and get into it with our first guest Connie Schultz. She's a Pulitzer prize winning columnist and journalism professor at Kent state who also happens to be married to Senator Sherrod Brown counting. How does that work? I think you're the only person in journalism with this unique situation. Well, how does what work which part? Do you want to know about being a journalist but being married to a Senator? Well, it helps that I'm a newspaper columnist, right? I've been a I was a calmness. What I meant shared. I just started writing my column sixteen years ago this month that we bet. And so I'm paid to give my opinion, which is helpful. I have to be as transparent as I possibly can. Which is good practice for any journalist. Frankly, I will say there's a little bit of a difference. I know plenty of journalists tickly in Washington who are married to people who could be perceived as a potential conflict, but most people don't know who they're married to. So the transparency issue doesn't seem to work the same way. Sometimes. And I don't mean that as a criticism. I just it makes it perhaps unique in my instance, it most people know who my husband is right. You know? But you are I do have to be careful if he is shepherding abilities, the one pushing something through have to be careful not to be writing about something that he's championing on the other hand, I'm not going to be the least but defense about writing about. Issues. I've always cared about women's rights, for example, abortion rights worker's rights. LGBTQ community writes a lot of that stuff. I been writing about long before I was a columnist covering it in different ways. So you know, it really helps to know who you are into be pretty certain on who you are. So that you don't let other people chip away at your identity when it comes to doing what I do. But many of your passions overlap with his which of course, makes a lot of sense. It also makes for a good marriage. Yeah. Yeah. And tell me about what it's like to be a columnist who's the swearing who was there for for all the festivities of the start of a new year new session. Well, because I'm so mindful of what it means to be a journalist right now in this country as journalists as a friend of so many journalists as a person who's teaching the next generation helping to teach the next generation of journalists it weighs heavily on me. What the message has been from this. Why? House and particularly from this president, and I don't see any point in. It I like knowing that or pussyfooting around it. He's been calling us. The enemy of the people is becoming increasingly dangerous to be journalists in the world. And unfortunately, it has the potential become increasingly dangerous to be a journalist in America. And we saw as, you know, a number of deaths of journalists in this country violent us in the last year. So I come at this always as journalists. I how can I not this is how I made my living for more than three decades. And yes, I'm married to a member of the Senate. But when people ask me what it's like to be married to a Senator, I always respond. I know what it's like to be married to share it right here. Every Senator is different. And every spouse of the Senator is different. I understand that..

"But I think what she's also doing is. She's laying out an ideological line. She's saying look whoever ends up running in twenty twenty you're going to have to show that you've gotten something done. You can't just be a pretty face. You can't just be a good name. You're gonna have to be a candidate who shows that you can both demographically and policy wise carry this party. I think Warren being the first to announce given her long background, given her intellectual background in consumer protection everything else like that it really sets the bar high. I think you're gonna get a lot more people who decide to run if you would ask me six weeks ago who would be the first person. Now, it's I would have said Cory Booker. So the fact that someone who I think was on the fence was the first person to announce speaks volumes about how many people are probably going to get into this race. It's going to be twenty twenty five. I think it's fair to say Donna is about the party. She used to run the party. You're you're known to be about policy, and as you put it earlier, what's the progressive agenda UCLA's with worn as the most likely progressive leader in that part of the primary. You know, You we. know, we started something that the nation. Just this this week called the ideas primary, and that's what we're covering. And I think Elizabeth Warren is going to be a key player in what I might call the sort of building out the inclusive multi racial populism. She's someone who was the godmother of the consumer financial protection board and more important. She has stood with people who feel shafted in this country who feel left behind. She speaks against a rig system that leaves people behind, and I think she has very strong, powerful ideas. I don't think she'll be alone though, or I hope the media, and we talked about this earlier media malpractice, we saw in two thousand sixteen is supplanted by more coverage of ideas because she wins big in that. I do think you'll see Bernie Sanders, and I think you'll see Sherrod Brown. The Senator from Ohio play in the same space there may be others. But Elizabeth Warren cannot be discounted. She persists perseveres, and she has very powerful strong ideas for your calling ideas is also. What in politics people call kitchen table, which was kitchen do candidate. And when you look at the midterms, I think Donna would agree. I mean, those bread and butter kitchen table issues propel Democrats in parts around this country. You wouldn't have expected to victory, and that's part of what we're witnessing today. So I think to lose sight of those issues is a mistake. I also think what we're witnessing is people who've come into congress. This is an exciting day. But boy, let's not lose sight of connecting vision to bold policy that will drive into twenty twenty and that's going to be key and do some work, for example in this country. We're over on time, and Donna and I still had three or four other wild statements. We wanted to make almost out of time. But Jason take a look before. I let you go as we talk about the intersection with Pelosi's doing and twenty twenty look at the new members of congress. We've talked a lot about the year of the woman. But it's also the year to be clear of the democratic woman. I would love to report a thirty five and thirty five in both parties. I would I would love to. That's not the facts day. Jason what we see is the diversity in this congress overwhelmingly on one side of the aisle your thoughts on that before. I let everyone go. Well, it's clear that the Republican party has been getting older and whiter. We've seen that. But it's not just that. You've got women who've come in as part of the freshman. They're engaged. Women cars from Oman has like one point two million Twitter followers. These are people who are getting on Instagram to talk about their first day of the job. These group of women who are coming into congress..
