Penguin Random House to Buy Simon & Schuster
"We now have a two point two billion dollar deal which i guess by the standards of emanate manet transactions is quite small but by the standards of book publishing. It's absolutely enormous webuye. Random penguin or penguins house. I never know which one those two. I prefer which is owned by this. Massive german publishing house called bertelsmann is going to buy or his said they wanted has agreed to by simon and schuster which is the third-biggest publisher in america. Four point two billion dollars and according to a statement from news cool which. I don't know if i take this at face value. But i haven't seen anyone say that it's not true. This will create a publishing house with seventy percent of all literary fiction. They basically have seventy percent of all these novels in america and they have about a third of the entire book market. If this this looks to me like a monopoly and it looks to me like bertelsmann's trying to create a monopoly and does anyone disagree. And if they are. Shouldn't this be looked. I don't agree. I think this could be very bad for book publishing in general especially for authors. There's one bless house to compete for authors and titles so that means lower advances that means bigger titles. There's already all this consolidation in the book business and there's a tendency now the trend. Is you know big blockbuster. Titles simon and shuster made a lot of money this year because of they they had the john bolton book and the mary trump book penguin random house made a lot of money this year because they had the obama book and the other obama book and so the consolidation isn't really good news for people care about you know interesting books getting published. It's just more bad news and it is a monopoly but at the same time i sent around this piece of franklin four wrote in the atlantic. About how this is actually not about book publishing per se or book publishing companies but is actually about amazon because while this combined company would have a third of the book publishing market amazon has about half of book publishing distribution. So it's like maybe a counterweight to that. I don't know how convinced are very like amazon's position in book. Sales is clearly monopolistic. And as if you remember back a million years to the episode. We talked about when they go into a big fight with has shed You know they basically stopped shipping shit bugs and they will mock is unavailable in this kind of thing in this big fight. They are not afraid to play t when it comes to fighting with book. Publishers and it is color ripley possible. I suppose that a combined penguin random house and simon and schuster is going to be so big that they will be able to stand up to amazon's bullying a little bit about better. And i kind of by that but everything else that frank wrote in that piece is just like. Oh my god. You're such a fogy. And he was like. I'm plus he was like we need to do something about this amazon monopoly without ever saying what it is that we need to do is very hard to break up that monopoly at this point. Is you know full of us trying to like bookshop to amazon. Like it's not going to move the needle verify thousand just has that monopoly that monopoly incidentally is so entrenched in people's minds. The people simply assume that amazon has a monopoly everywhere else as well and it doesn't and this is one of the weird things about amazon. Is that because his daunted is a bookstore and because it has such a powerful position in books every time it makes an announcement like it did last week saying oh we're moving into pharmaceuticals and prescriptions. Oh my it's going to have napoli in prescription. Of course it's not gonna have a monopoly and prescriptions. Books are unique. There were very very unique. Market it does seem absolutely obvious that the big loser here is authors and especially authors of fiction. Because what always used to happen. Is you'd have an auction. Your agent would like send out your manuscript to a bunch of different publishers and then highest bidder would win but now when all of those different publishers owned by the same company they basically just agree between each other which one of them is going to make the bed and then they don't need to worry about what the other one's going to because they all know that they're not going to receive a competitive bid from one of the others so it's very bad for author advances. I is that enough for the doj to try and stop this anti monopoly of i. Don't yeah it's a good question. I mean i think from what we've seen recently. It seems like it's definitely more likely than anyone probably would have said like five years ago. I mean he had like the mcgraw hill. S- engagements textbooks but still that was merged that with stopped on antitrust grounds. So i i think this will definitely be scrutinized quite a bit whether or not they consider the consider it a obviously a less competitive market whether the considerate monopolistic is definitely up for debate. The other losers here are going to be. You're gonna have a lot of people are gonna lose their jobs if this goes through about specifically what they said in terms of where you get you know your your synergies is that they're gonna cut a bunch of sales and marketing jobs and they. I've got more importantly they're going to cut a bunch of like weird back in like you know that whole infrastructure of printing and distribution now can be like diedhiou placated which we east coast media types. Don't like to think about like the truck is driving the books around to bookstores. Whatever books a big heavy physical objects which way like a lot of physical. Wait if you add. The mola something like the obama but with seven hundred pages and sold two million copies already. That's a lot of just logistics of moving around the country and those logistics or get centralized and that's a bunch of savings right there and one of the interesting things about the book industry right now is the covid. Pandemic has her book printing clients at exactly the same time as everyone is reading more books especially things like mary trump. and so. There's this incredible crunch all of the publishers who who were meant to be publishing books right now which have been sheduled for months or a year pushing them back because there's just no capacity to print them because you have people like barack obama mary trump just dominating the printing presses so we're gonna have a lot of books really crowding onto the book shelves in the next year or two which have been pushed back. Thanks to cove it. Yeah he also had a lot of books pushback because authors weren't gonna be able to tours and so publishers. Were concerned about that. So they push a big names as well

Trumpdates: Bolton vs. Mulvaney Goes to Court
"What is John John Bolton up to and what is Mick Mulvaney up to mick? Mulvaney tried to join a lawsuit brought by John. Bolton and another subpoenaed witness to the impeachment investigation the bulletin lawsuit is unprecedented. Unprecedented and unnecessary. It is asking a court to decide whether Bolton should comply with a congressional subpoena or whether he should follow Donald Trump's request that that he not just by John Bolton as a private citizen now lives beyond control of the president of the United States and there is no legal reason for him to evade that Subpoena Mick Mulvaney dropped his legal attempt today to join the Bolton Lawsuit After Bolton objected to Mick Mulvaney joining his lawsuit Mick Mulvaney says he will allow file lawsuits asking the same question to a judge in both cases. These are delaying tactics designed to slow down the impeachment investigation but chairman. Adam Schiff says they will not committee will not engage in a month's long legal pursuit to enforce the congressional subpoenas of these witnesses but the investigation investigation will take a negative inference from Mick Mulvaney as refusal to testify on the assumption that if Mick Mulvaney had something helpful to say about Donald Trump anything helpful to say about Donald Trump. He would testify and therefore his refusal to testify can be taken as a negative inference against president trump. The first news reports of John Bolton's memorable John Bolton's inevitable book appeared this weekend and viewers of this program new. The John Bolton was working on a book deal the day he left the trump White House since I announced it here on this program. I'm that night because it was wicked. Obvious reports indicate that John Bolton is getting a two million dollar advance from for his book from Simon and Schuster in order to get a book advanced like that the author has to tell the publisher. What the publisher is paying for what the publisher is getting? Therefore there there are people at Simon Schuster. Tonight in midtown Manhattan already know what John Bolton is refusing to tell the impeachment investigation instigation journey. Discussion is Chris. Liu who served as a senior White House aide to President Obama before that he was deputy chief counsel of the House Oversight Committee and John Holliman is back with us. Chris Lewis I want to get your reaction to this legal maneuver that we've never seen before I've got a correct congressional subpoena China. I'm going to bring a lawsuit to ask a judge what I do with it. I think it's fair to say none of this is on the level Lawrence. I mean this is the case of Mick Mulvaney wanting thing to avoid being held in contempt of Congress wanting to delay the proceedings but only willing to abide by the court's ruling if it goes in his favor and so what he's doing really is trying to serrate congressional oversight during my eight years on the House oversight committee part of it was during the Clinton administration we took depositions of senior Clinton administration aides aides. When I managed President Obama's Cabinet Eric holder testified on the hill fast and furious? Hillary Clinton testified about Benghazi. So this idea at the White House. Aides never testified is completely at odds with precedent. And if it's taken to its logical extreme it just completely wipes out Congress's ability to do any kind of oversight and let's not forget the most important point if there's any kind of executive privilege Mick Mulvaney. He's already waited. You'll recall. He stood up in that White House. Press briefing room. Any basically admitted that there was a quid pro quo so again as you correctly point out. If he had something good to say he would be out there saying right now John as we know. Oh two million dollar book advance for John Bolton means he's telling People Book Agent Book at Hers Pitching the material that he's is refusing to tell the Congress yes. I think it's likely that you and I know some of these people. If we went out with the proper implements we'd probably extract his permission them tonight. If we were hard hitting enough about it I think the question bold right now. It's tricky one. We assume let's assume the following through on the base of some of the testimony. Today it does seem as though Bolton was with those people those professionals who looked at this and said this is likely illegal it looks like golden waiting at various points in order to get that eight me released he he is. We all have for our views about job bulletins about politics ideology but it seems in this case. At least he recognize him the legal payroll that was in play here and try to do the right thing if for no other reason to save his own skin now. The question is what is economic interest in. There's two competing things here. Being a hero in this case is probably is economic interest in terms of selling books a a reading public. That thought. The did the right thing. Kim telling that story we'd probably be sell a lot of books. Unfortunately become a hero in the story requires them to testify and if he testifies it gives away some of the stuff that would be the news the book so he's got a very tricky thing to try to figure out here. How'd you land this plane? In the way that drives the most interest gives away some but not everything that he knows so the book is not drainable of its value by testimony the The book Chris quite predictably as I said the first night he when he left if the White House is scheduled for publication before the presidential election because of course if Donald Trump would lose the book value collapses. Right away But and so does a book like this to get cleared. The Way James Comey's book had to get cleared because he worked in the FBI. Since you you know since Bolton works on national security issues is there clearance process for that and can the trump administration simply refused to clear well Lawrence. There's actually two issues. One is the clearance issue shoe. If there's classified information information that might implicate classified information. That's in there. The other important thing was you'll recall trump administration officials apparently signed a non disclosure confidentiality agreement. which trump is selectively enforce or? Try To enforce against some folks including this anonymous book. That just came out and so so it will be interesting to see how this all plays out. I suspect John Bolton probably realizes on the non disclosure agreement that's not really enforceable it's never been enforceable against anybody and I know he's probably smart enough guy to actually at this point understand what is classified and what's not classified and we'll probably stayed abroad outlines when the book deal is introduced in court art in the Bolton Lawsuit. I'm sure the judge is going to have a a lot of even more reluctance to take the Bolton case serious. Yes that's probably right and look I think. Thank you know one of the things that Chris I think we are all under the impression that people signed these. NDA's has been claimed certainly beginning administration is through. The trump tried to get everyone to sign. I'm not sure everyone.
