"Let's go to the phone, Steve, and central Arkansas. What's the way on Steve McCarthy? Steve, are Kevin McCarthy. Steve, welcome to the program. Let's look at as far as Kevin McCarthy's ability to lead. Let's kind of look at his history. He was a Speaker of the House for two years from 17 to 19, what did the house accomplish in that two years, the whole two years of spent trying to impeach a Republican president? Donald Trump. I mean, what kind of Speaker of the House what chances do you think we would have of getting Joe Biden is paying impeached as long as Nancy Pelosi is Speaker of the House? And it's a great point, but Steve, let me jump in here for his no no just a second. This is a fine point you're bringing up. The reality is, if you go back and listen to the audio, we'll play it again later in the show. If you go back and listen to that conversation between Cheney and McCarthy, it was clear to me the Republicans were colluding with the Democrats to take down Trump. That's what was really going on behind the scenes. That's my point exactly. They were doing the same thing when Trump got elected in 2017. He was leading the house in polluting to get rid of Donald Trump. What makes you think he's going to do different in 2020? You know what, Steve, it is a fair point. And I appreciate you bringing that up. Thanks for calling in today, Steve, and hope you're doing well out there in central Arkansas. 8 four four 747 88 68. That's our toll free telephone number that's 8 four four 747 88 68. Meanwhile, while all this is happening, you've got Joe Biden, they flew him out to Portland, Oregon, last late last night, and the president, while you were sleeping, trying to figure out, by the way, how to buy your groceries and your gas, President Biden was hobnobbing at one of these high dollar fundraisers at the Portland yacht club. One of the few places in antifa hasn't burned to the ground in Portland. No cameras allowed. However, there were some transcripts of the speech that were leaked to the media. And he attacked Florida Republicans for passing the parental rights and education law. He also used a profane reference to God. And I'm not going to repeat it here. I don't want to get hit by lightning. But this man has a filthy mouth. So anyway, Biden is just dismissing all of this legislation in Florida and he says the Republicans are going after Mickey Mouse. But the propane reference to God is a little surprising that it's the sort of language you would not expect coming from a man who professes to be a practicing Catholic who says it's okay to kill unborn babies..

About what the change that Christ had done in their lives when you went to tell the family about the teen challenge is that when they said the apology well actually after later on we would go back to this church and we would see these boys and it was a beautiful sight they would be up in the front row. Hands lifted worship in praising God after one though services he walked up to me and said Hey I just I wanna apologize for any wrong. We might have done you to be honest. I don't know if he even realized all diamonds. He was just trying to defeat a drug habit and get a little money for.

Why are you even associated with them like you know what they did but you can tell your story? There's a reason why one day I was out for a jog and I went by him from their house and all of these teenage guys are sitting out front and when I saw them I immediately felt like I was telling me I needed to forgive him and I told him I said. I don't really feel like forgiving them and once again I just felt that still small voice inside saying you. You really need to forgive him and I said I got. If you'll help me I'll try my best and I continued on my run and when I got back home I felt him. Speak to me again.

That's when this incident took place about six hundred feet away from the shooting is an apartment block there in just off the central part of boot track and armed to the teeth. Dozens of anti-terrorist police, they're they're not saying a whole lot. But we can assume. Something's happening inside. We assume it's probably the suspect, but they have not get on that building. Yeah. So have they indicated whether they think this is a terror attack or something else? Yeah. They're using the language most probably terror related, but in this case, it certainly has the fit and feel of some kind of a quote, unquote, terrorist incident. Now, we have had reports that there were other locations where shootings took place with you know, about that very sketchy again someone reported and other part of Utrecht hearing what sounded like a gunshot near a mosque the police keeping everything pretty close to the best.

Neither of these guys finished college. They both came from the streets, and they reported on the streets. What's remarkable about these two? And I guess, you know, this better than anybody is that there were larger than life at almost exactly the same way, they were pugnacious creatures of the street pounding out columns for the tabloids. In fact, here's one of the star. Journalists you interviewed for the film the early gritty days of journalism. You didn't have an Ivy league degree and you never made a particularly good salary. You. Were much more naturally of the street. Then you were when the whole thing became a profession that voice sounds familiar. Here's Pete Hamill expressed a similar thought once.

"The Columbia journalism review. And it read last week was brutal for American journalism. The first graph goes on in detail, quote by one estimate, BuzzFeed and media properties owned by Verizon and Gannett made plans to lay off more than a thousand people between them and last summer. The daily news suffered massive layoffs, including four dozen reporters editors and photographers and half of its editorial staff once upon a time, the daily news and your post and many other local papers were powerful players in a city's life here in New York to columnist Jimmy breslin and Pete Hamill had incredible influence back in the day, legendary they might some might say they were considered superstars, according to Spike Lee, who is one of the many voices in a new documentary, breslin and Hamill deadline artists it premieres tonight. January twenty eighth at eight PM on HBO. And the film tells the story of these two men in features witnesses to and participants in their lives. Including Robert deniro, Shirley, MacLaine, Gloria Steinem, Tom Wolfe. And even some voices familiar from WNYC radio labs, Robert krulwich, and on the media's brick Gladstone, I'm pleased to have filmmakers in studio Jonathan alter John block and Steve McCarthy. Welcome guys. Thank you. Allison and listeners we want to hear from you. Did you work with Jimmy breslin or Pete Hamill? Do you have a Shourie to stare assured a story to share flattering or unflattering about one of them? Do you have a question for one of the filmmakers or did? You have a remembrance of either man, give us a call. Our number is two one two four three three nine six nine to two two four three three WNYC. Our lines are open. You can also tweet at us at all of it W N Y C. So I I know Steven John well just meeting. Nice to meet you as well. I feel like we've been in the same room at some point in life. NBC free. There you go. We all worked at NBC. I'm still CBS news together. Yes. So John, John Jonathan you can I think it's probably easier. If you call me Jonathan distinguish me from John. John at all I want Steve Jonathan what was it about breslin that made him perfect to tell stories. Well, I think as Nick Poletti who wrote goodfellas says in the film, you could go to Oxford for four thousand years and not learn how to cover the streets the way Jimmy breslin did. So he he came from. Ozone park, queens, originally, and he had people in his family who worked for the city and from a very very early point from when he was sixteen years old he was working newspapers. And and imbibing the life of New York, and so he became really in the whole history of the city. These two guys were the great bards of our city in very different ways at very different styles. Jimmy was rat tat tat, you know, what happened yesterday in New York. Pete was more of a poet Robert krulwich compares his writing to Mahler or a French novel. So these are two very different ways of telling the stories of every day New Yorkers. It's interesting that you mentioned he started very. Young because it was apprenticeship people were apprentices in journalism, then they didn't sort of roll out of fancy schools schools. Yeah. Got any school at all? Neither one of them really went to college. At all started early journalism was different than it wasn't seen as a very lofty. Wasn't it professionals? Yeah. Basically, I very well. Paying a lot of Jewish people in Irish people did it because we couldn't get jobs at the downtown firm Wall Street firms and stuff like that. So it wasn't seen as a clean profession back in those days, but that'll change Watergate. And I think a lot of Ivy league people started to get into and they saw the power of the media as I was inspired very Woodward and Bernstein when I was in college, and yes you, but we, you know, those of us who are college educated in journalism. We have certain assets that we bring you know, if we pay attention in school. Maybe we have a little historical context or a little egg minor expertise and something that we're covering but were missing that street experience. And I think missing a certain kind of story to tell a lot of it though. Wasn't taught somebody Jim Dwyer of New York Times in the film describes Jimmy breslin as a genius who spent his life trying to prove that he wasn't a genius. There was a natural talent that both of these guys had that showed itself over and over again. Natural talent that was honed in Catholic school, by the way. Yes. Yeah. And they talk about the rain Allison one of the things we really try to do with this film is show a lot of their writings, so it's it's not just for people who've been in journalism anybody's ever wanted to write or pre she good rating, and that's hard to do in film. You have to do it very carefully. Pete has a beautiful voice and read the excerpts from his columns beautifully. Jimmy was too old to read his own work effectively. So we hired a guiding Michael respo- Lee played Jackie approval, senior in the sopranos and is introduced now, and he's so good is Jimmy breslin is so good that even people who knew Jimmy breslin. Well, don't realize that it's not Jimmy speaking for for the columns. Honestly, we interview Jimmy a lot before his death and pitas. Well, we we had a call up. Okay. Welcome back. John. Why do you think New York City needed? These two men. Because they were the voice of the little guy. They gave a voice to the unforgotten man and brought him. And the woman woman the forgotten that unforgotten the unforgotten. Into the present day consciousness. Yeah. I think they they they really part of the fabric of of this country. And they're the the little people are the are really what made America great to the president and Hamill readers of the world. There's a lot in this film about race and class in New York City, and and Spike Lee in the late less pain and African American columnists Earle Caldwell and African American columnist. They are talking in the film about how. Breslin, and Hamill were speaking up on behalf of African Americans at a time when nobody else was nearly spoke for for gender people. They spoke for her aides they were courageous app tickly as a Irishmen for their tribe. They were courageous. They went against sort of the tribes. Sometimes I was growing up in Brooklyn at the time reading them. They were in my house, but they weren't popular in my house. My dad was a cop and Jimmy was very tough on the cops. So I I look at them as two courageous guys who who followed their the facts and follow their heart in their type of reporting and column writing that they did I I don't think they just went against the tribe. They went against prevailing, a popular opinion. And certainly one of the stir sterling examples is is Jimmy in the course of the Bernard get subway death wish gunman incident, would you would you really display? Well, in terms of of you have this woman who's trying to get in his face about wouldn't. You want wouldn't you want somebody to protect you or your family and Jimmy is Jimmy's whistling lonely too. Yeah. Yeah. That's what Phil Donahue says. You're listening to near the only guy out there and less pain said it was the scariest time he could remember people in the back. And that's what he says when he found out that they'd been shot in the back allies that game over gets wasn't justified in shooting these teenagers on the subway. One of them was paralysed for life, and and less pain said that as an African American. It was the scariest time it can remember in New York is the entire city was on the side of this, including the crime was really bad. Then you know, I was in New York at the time was very scary on the subways so fear. Of course, we certainly know that now fear can be used to do make people say and do bad things. So that was a time when New York was afraid and Jimmy stood up against that fear and said, you know, what happened is you can't shoot four people in the back. Wrong is wrong. Exactly. And then just a few years after that when a jogger was raped in central park and five black teenagers were arrested. Donald Trump took out full-page ads saying that they should be executed hitting been indicted yet. And he said they should be executed. And both Jimmy breslin. Pete hamill. We focused on PM on this case stood up against Trump. And they explained the way he was using hate and fear. And then of course, his later. Points out thirteen years later. They're true that they didn't do it DNA evidence shows that another man who confessed to the crime was the culprit. So if Trump and had his way they would have been executed for a crime. They didn't commit. Let's get a call. I've got Shirley is calling from Passaic New Jersey on line three. Hi, charlie. Charlie's listening. We'll catch up. Sara Lee are you there? Okay. Charlie. Probably get back to what do you? What do you think they're gifts were storytellers? So the telling detail. Which both of them believed. You couldn't get very easily on the phone. You had to go to the story to chase chase chase as Jimmy said. And it's it's often that little detail that really makes a story and the ethic they also understood that you can come at a story from a lot of different directions. There's no cookie cutter approach to telling a story. But if you want to read. One story that is already even before the film. I think after film a lot more journalism schools, we use it. But for many years, it's been used in journalism schools, it's called well, it's an honor. And it's about the man who dug the grave for John F Kennedy at Arlington cemetery. So the first thing that made that story. So fact of was just the idea of doing it in the first place everybody else was covering the funeral like three thousand reporters recovering the few a lot of luminaries were there bit of an exaggeration. But you know, a lot that that's where the world's attention was general. But, but if you're if you're really a top-flight storyteller, you find an angle that nobody else has. So that the story is not so familiar, so he thought, well, I I'll go interview the grave digger, I'll go with a press pack, isn't and tell the whole story through him. But instead of making it like drawing the conclusions. He just told this very seemingly small story. It's fascinating listening to the late Tom Wolfe in our films. One of the very last interviews. He did describing the beauty of this particular piece, which starts out with the grave digger having breakfast. When he gets the call from the cemetery can. You come in. And you don't even know what he's doing a story is not even know, you don't even know. So you wanna keep reading one of why is Jimmy breslin writing about this of all days when we're in this national crisis, and it becomes clear as you read through the column what's going on. And it was the definition of beautifully rendered story. Yeah. I teach a Montclair state university. And we're going to use this film. We're gonna use those stories to teach them in this case. Look the other way. Sometimes don't go with the pack. Look the other way see what else is going on. And and again, use a small store to tell a way way much bigger one. That's right. That's that's when you find the heart of the story by by looking at those very details at devils in the details, and John block is a specialist at that. By the way, he is the guy who found a lot of the real people that Jimmy reported on. And then persuaded them to come onto the show. But it's also something John has done his entire career. Which is very large complicated important stories, but through real regular people. Let's go to our call. We've got Jessie online too is calling us from Brooklyn and Jesse you were reporter. Hi. Yes. I I was thinking of Jimmy breslin. I would think of doing when I was a reporter I worked at the coast. And I met him at a funeral or at a week for this. Let's you know, worker who died in a workplace accident. And you know, I'm this. I'm a white girl from Long Island, and he liked deputized me to be his translator. Workers of the relatives of the survivors of this accident and also the wealth of the worker who died and at my Spanish, isn't that good?.

"This is all of it on WNYC Jonathan alter John block and Steve McCarthy are my guests. They have made a new documentary breslin and Hamel deadline artists premiers on HBO tonight at eight PM. What do you think these gentlemen, couldn't do today that they did that what wouldn't fly? Well, Jimmy's behavior. Probably in the newsroom, which he did get a cold on once before probably wouldn't have flown. Pete Hamill dated, Shirley MacLaine and Jackie O at the same time. I don't know if that would be acceptable now. No, no, Pete was a lot of people love p Jimmy on the other hand had a lot of issues. And again, we talked about being a complicated, man. But he could be brash. She could be that type of behavior is becoming increasingly difficult to defend nowadays. He would have been called into HR ally. What what did you tell their stories together? Well, there is that natural connection. They were really the the number one and two most famous columnists in New York City. They were like Babe Ruth, and Lou Gehrig, and they were friends, and they they represented a particular kind of journalism that was unlike other mainstream journalism. It also if we had just done a biography of one of them, it would have been more of a biography film by putting them together. We were able to do a film about journalism and what we lost. We thought we had a lot more latitude about that. We did tell their life stories, but I think we also would go into discussions about journalism with people like Crowe, which in Brooklyn stone and things like that to put this into context of what's we lost? What we had what we don't have now. And also to tell a richer story about the life of this city. One of the interesting things is that younger people seem to really like the film, the ones who started film festivals. And it reminds them of a grittier pre Disney, New York, and that their style GIC for even though they never experienced it. It was scary. Awesome. It's some of it was funny. Like, I think the the the the mobster sections of the film like when you see John Gotti in jail talking about Jimmy breslin. It's colorful in a way that the color has been drained of a lot of New York. Now, I think people long for the days when it was a. Funkier city scrappy or let's go to Ellen online seven Ellen is calling us hylan. Hi. So I have a story about Jimmy breslin in the in the nineties. She was commissioned by my bosses who knew him to write the forward to a book we were publishing, and he was very very late. And my boss has had to leave town. They said the one thing you have to do today's get this essay and get it laid out and get it to the winter. So I called his home number. He must have recognized the office number because he picked up the phone. He said, I'm working on. It anyhow. Five minutes later the piece came through on a fax machine. And I had barely finished reading it. When the phone rang again, and I picked up the phone, and he said, well, what do you think is it? Okay. No, hello. This is Jason. No. But also that he, you know, he was so brisk aggressive, but then, but then as soon as he turned it in the next thing, you want is it, okay? Yeah. He had his insecurities. We have a whole section of the film. They think you'll like just Jimmy on the phone. The way he would call up and without identifying himself. He just say J B number one when he was calling a friend or Nick pledge. You know, goodfellas was a good friend of busy. You just describes how Jimmy would be in the middle of a conversation when he would dial his number like it was as if you didn't know that he often filled with expletives, and I I tell story about how e. You know, I was on deadline at Newsweek reading a story about him, and it wasn't going to be entirely flattering. And I pick up the phone. He doesn't identify himself. Of course, he just as alter you f with me. I'll f you good because I'm the F ING John Gotti of journalism and never effing. Forget it. That should be a t-shirt shirt somewhere. This brings me up something I thought about as I was watching the film, and you're all journalists as well as filmmakers writers. What conversations did you have or decisions did you make so at this didn't turn into a love letter to these guys didn't get soggy with nostalgia? Well, I think we're all as you said veteran journalists. So I think we set out to tell the story warts and all and we're going to let the chips fall those great cliches that we use. But I think that we needed to be real, right? They were real we needed to be real we needed to tell the story about Jimmy flying off the handle in using Asian slurs against a young reporter who had criticized him. We went full on that Pete's drinking. You know, he he wrote a book about it. So those things we didn't want to do just one dimensional piece about how great they were. We wanted to show the ups and downs. And and I think it worked, and I think that you you kind of respect Jimmy because of that is life wasn't just one high note wasn't just you can't judge somebody by their worst act, but we didn't actually say that we actually had an interesting debate about this in the editing room. We didn't want to have anything. What happened was we we still haven't explained exactly what happened. It was an Asian American reporter at Newsday. And she and we interviewed her in the film and her name was Mary is Marietta. She's not a professor at northwestern journalism school, and she didn't like a column that Jimmy wrote and she told him. That she thought the column was bad one. She was twenty five years old and Jimmy was. Really angry that she had the temerity to do this. And he went out in the newsroom restarted rage about her. And he called her a yellow Kerr nowadays that would be the end of Jimmy residents career. They almost fired him from Newsday and decided to suspend him. Instead, one of the things we made sure to do was not let him off the hook not have some comment after that saying, oh, well, you shouldn't have one incident that Mars your career, or well, we actually had a quote from somebody very famous who's in the film saying, well, he's not Donald Trump like don't don't overreact to this. And we said, no, we're not going to let him off the hook. This was something that was bad. And and. Well, that's a good question. Sees wife doesn't think he knows what he's saying is bad. He just goes out. There's no filter there sometimes because of his anger, but we Richard Esposito who was there at the time and is a news executive and now a friend of ours suspended him suspended them. But at the at the end of that section as he let them have it, and he said to something the effective in the film that just because you're brilliant and talented doesn't mean you're not a sniveling twelve year old underneath you. Sometimes I think so we tried to be as honest as possible with that and not let him off the. But also by seeing like, the great work. You did in crown heights was a riot in crown heights between African Americans and orthodox Jews Jimmy took a cab to the fry which was difficult and they burn the cab. They pulled him out. They beat Jimmy ripta's closer close off Colin Quinn talks about this in the film. They beat him on his. And. You never. Yeah. If he had been if Jimmy had been fired over the incident with the Asian American reporter, he never would have gone on that other works. It's something that's important for people to keep in mind. He never wholly apologize in the conventional sense. He did by way of his tremendous work. Yeah. He went on. He went on Howard Stern and made the situation worse by John. Let's go to Charlie on line three Charlie's back. Hi, charlie. Charlie says, he's back home. That's truly Carrillo, Shirley. To that. We I don't even think he mentioned it in his column that they they beat them up and re ripped his clothes off and everything else. He didn't see that. As part of the story. The story was what was happening here. Yeah. In this. This piece from nineteen Ninety-one from New York Times covering and it says Mr. breslin was not seriously injured said yesterday as he returned from a lineup that he was saddened by the quote hopelessness of the lives of the individuals who had attacked him, right? That was the essence of breslin Vaas black. I love Kosta sesame said we'll have you know, you champion people or your life. Now, what do you think of them? Now. This is what I think of now, what do you mean by champion? If if I knew I didn't do a very good job did either still there, you know, he says that and then he told John at the age of what eighty seven or eighty six in the film that that's part of the game. You know, getting beat up over the story and Pete also was very very concerned with the lives of the poor. And he was constantly going into. Disadvantaged neighborhoods in writing about their their lives. But we also want to have a lot of funny stuff in the film. So at one point go ahead. Now, speaking a fun. I got a call for line nine but finished good. Well, Pete was very briefly the editor of the New York Post and later was the editor of the new York Daily News. But what he's editor the poster was clowning, Abe Hirschfeld who owned the paper, and he fired Pete and staff went into rebellion. And they basically the inmates took over the asylum and Pete put out the paper from a coffee shop on the ground floor. And it just makes for amusing. He was beloved Pete. He really was with the people that work with him. Everybody still. Gentleman. He is he really. Gentleman, and a brilliant man to he didn't go to college. He's like self taught. I mean, he's just a brilliant brilliant guy in a in a real sweet guy, and yes, we portrayed them as a kind of a playboy back when but he ended up marrying for Kiko and has been married to her for twenty five thirty thirty years, and is really just like a great relationship. And she's you know, he's ailing now, she's helping him so much. So it's wonderful to see. And I think that that was one of the treats is getting to know Pete doing this Pete Pete moved back to Brooklyn recently. And he's writing a book about Brooklyn Jimmy died in two thousand seventeen is a funny story about when Pete was dating Jackie Onassis, Shirley MacLaine at the same time. And then Jimmy wrote a column about it. I'm trying to think of who the equivalent is like, Houma Avidan and data. Avidan compared to. Jackie onassis. She was the most famous woman. Dating late lady Gaga, Madonna, Dan. And if we shall Obama was single like. It's just kind of unimaginable another print journalist ran a position to do that or Jimmy breslin hosted Saturday Night Live. Can you imagine today print journalist being that famous doing TV ads and even a book, author you wouldn't be toasting Saturday Night Live?.

There was a headline in the Columbia journalism review. And it read last week was brutal for American journalism.

The new York Daily News suffered massive layoffs, including four dozen reporters editors and photographers and half of its editorial staff once upon a time, the daily news and York Post and many other local papers were powerful players in the city's life here in New York to columnist Jimmy breslin and Pete Hamill had incredible influence back in the day, legendary they might some might say they were considered superstars, according to Spike Lee, who is one of the many voices in a new documentary, breslin and Hamill deadline artists it premieres tonight.

And even some voices familiar from WNYC radio labs, Robert krulwich on the media's Brooke Gladstone, I'm pleased to have the filmmakers in studio Jonathan alter John block and Steve McCarthy. Welcome guys. Thank you and listeners we want to hear from you. Did you work with Jimmy breslin or Pete Hamill? Do you have a Suri to stare assured a story to share flattering or unflattering about one of them? Do you have a question for one of the filmmakers or did?

ES news together. Yes. So John, John Jonathan you can I think it's probably easier. If you call me Jonathan so English me from John there, we go. John at all. I won't Steve Jonathan what was it about breslin that made him perfect to tell New York stories. Well, I think as Nick Poletti who wrote goodfellas says in the film, you could go to Oxford for four thousand years and not learn how to cover the streets the way Jimmy breslin did. So he he came from. Ozone park, queens, originally, and he had people in his family who worked for the city and from a very very early point from when he was sixteen years old he was working newspapers. And and imbibing the life of New York, and so he he became really in the whole history of the city. These two guys were the great bards of our city in very different ways at very different styles. Jimmy was rat tat tat, you know, what happened yesterday in New York. Pete was more of a poet Robert krulwich compares his reading to Mahler or a French novel. So these are two very different ways of telling the stories of every day New Yorkers. It's interesting that you mentioned you started very.

Neither one of them really went to college. At all started early journalism was different than it wasn't seen as a very lofty. Wasn't it professionals? It was a graph that basically I very well. Paying a lot of Jewish people in Irish people did it because we couldn't get jobs at the downtown firm Wall Street firms and stuff like that. So it wasn't seen as a clean profession back in those days, but that'll change Watergate. And I think a lot of Ivy league people started to get into what I saw the power of the media ugly me as I was inspired by Woodward and Bernstein when I was in college, and yes you, but we those of us who are college educated in journalism. We have certain assets that we bring you know, if we paid attention in school. Maybe we have a little historical context or a little. Minor expertise and something that we're covering but were missing that street experience. And I think missing a certain kind of story to tell a lot of it though. Wasn't taught somebody Jim Dwyer of New York Times in the film describes Jimmy breslin as a genius who spent his life trying to prove that he wasn't a genius.

And they talk about the rain Allison one of the things we really try to do with this film is show a lot of their writing. So it's it's not just for people who've been in journalism anybody's ever wanted to write or preciado good rating, and that's hard to do. When a film, you have to do it, very carefully. Pete has a beautiful voice and read the excerpts from his columns beautifully. Jimmy was too old to read his own work effectively. So we hired a guy named Michael respo- Lee played Jackie appeals senior in the sopranos in the deuce now. And he's so good is Jimmy breslin is so good that even people who knew Jimmy breslin. Well, don't realize that it's not Jimmy speaking for for the columns. Honestly, we interview Jimmy a lot before his death and pitas. Well, we oh we had a call. Okay. We'll come back. John. Why do you think New York City needed? These two men. Because they were the voice of the little guy. They gave a voice to the unforgotten man and brought him. And the woman woman the forgotten that unforgotten for the unforgotten. Into the present day consciences yet. I think they they they really part of the fabric of this country. And they're the little people are the are really what made America great to the breslin and Hamill readers of the world. There's a lot in this film about race and class in New York City, and and. Spike Lee in the late less pain. And African American columnists Earl Caldwell and African American columnists. They are talking in the film about how president and Hamill were speaking up on behalf of African Americans at a time when nobody else was. And they spoke for for gender people. They spoke for her aides they were courageous app typically as a Irishmen for their tribe. They were courageous. They went against sort of the tribes. Sometimes I was growing up in Brooklyn at the time reading them. They were in my house, but they weren't popular in my house that was a cop and Jimmy was very tough on the cops. So I I look at them as two courageous guys who who followed their the facts and follow their heart in their type of reporting and column writing that they did I don't think they just went against the tribe. They went against prevailing, a popular opinion. And certainly one of the sterling examples is is Jimmy in the course of the Bernard get subway death wish gunman incident, would you would you really display?

They're turns out they didn't do it DNA evidence shows that another man who confessed to the crime was the culprit. So if Trump and had his way they would have been executed for a crime. They didn't commit let's go to a call. I've got Charlie is calling from Passaic New Jersey on line three. Hi, charlie. Charlie's listening catch minute. Sara Lee are you there? Okay. Charlie. Probably get back to what do you? What do you think they're gifts were storytellers? So the telling detail. Which both of them believed. You couldn't get very easily on the phone. You had to go to the story to chase chase chase as Jimmy said. And it's it's often that little detail that really makes a story, and they also understood that you can come at a story from a lot of different directions. There's no cookie cutter approach to telling a story. But if you want to read. One story. There's already even before the film. I think after our film a lot more journalism schools, we use it for many years. It's been used in journalism schools. It's called well, it's an honor. And it's about the man who dug the grave for John F Kennedy at Arlington cemetery. So the first thing that made that story so affective was just the idea of doing it in the first place. Everybody else was covering the funeral like three thousand reporters recovering the a lot of luminaries were there bit of an exaggeration. But you know, a lot. But that's where the world's attention was. And so Naro, but but if you're if you're really a top-flight storyteller e find an angle that nobody else has so that the stories not so familiar, so he thought, well, I'll go interview the grave digger, I'll go with the press pack, isn't and tell the whole story through him. But instead of may. Making it like drawing the conclusions. He just told this very seemingly small story. It's fascinating listening to the late Tom Wolfe in our films. One of the very last interviews. He did describing the beauty of this particular piece, which starts out with the grave digger having breakfast. When he gets the call from the cemetery. Can you come in? And you don't even know what he's doing. The story is not even know, you don't even know. So you wanna keep reading one of why is Jimmy breslin rang about this of all days when we're in this national crisis, and it becomes clear as you read through the column. What's going on? And it was the definition of beautifully rendered story. Yeah. I teach a Montclair state university. We're gonna use this film. I'm going to use those stories to teach them in this case. Look the other way. Sometimes don't go with the pack. Look the other way see what else is going on. And and again, use a small story to tell a way way much bigger one. That's right. That's that's when you find the heart of the story by by looking at those very details. The devils in the details, and John block is a specialist at that. By the way, he is the guy who found a lot of the real people that Jimmy reported on. And then persuaded them to come onto the show. But it's also something John has done is entire career, which is still very large complicated important stories, but through real regular people. Let's go to a call. We've got Jessie online too is calling us from Brooklyn and Jesse you were reporter. Hi. Yes. I I was thinking of Tammy Brad learn I would think of doing Brooklyn when I was a reporter I worked at the New York Post, and I met him at a funeral or at a week for this..

"steve mccarthy" Discussed on The Majority Report with Sam Seder

"Like, here's a tip for all of you congressional staffers who listened to the program watched the show if you're going to videotape your boss and put it on the web. There's you have two options. One is you either cut out the part where you go three two one or you use your fingers. See that's why I mean, if you were counting down from let's say thirty six this would be uncomfortable. But you're doing three two. One. I alwa- needs Steve king in congress. I also need Steve king in congress. I feel like I do a good job of representing islands. And so often I have found Steve king to be such an ally an ally that I need in the other body called the house representatives. He's worked with so many things that are important to Iowa agricultural issues. The farm bail alternative energy things that are very important Iowa like wind energy, particularly oh, an ethanol and biodiesel as well without his help in the house representatives. I awoke right. Goes on and on. We don't need. Energy. Protecting white babies what? Now they start. They the Kevin McCarthy Steve McCarthy as we like to call them has said that king will not be sitting on any will not get any committee appointments. The the big deal for this is right there in Grassley comments because king will no longer be on the agriculture committee, which means that he will no longer be able to offer all sorts of benny's for for ions in big Ag there. And so this is going to he's going to if he's not reinstated. And I don't think he will be he will lose in a Republican primary, and he's already got I think a couple of weeks ago. Some some local Biwa Republican announced he was going to take them on. And it was all like. You know, this is tasteless. But like, it's a distraction. It's embarrassing. And now, you got the you know, now there's the meat to fill it in. Right. He'll be and he'll must have been really a big surprise for all these Republicans to find out that Steve king was such a jerk. It's shocking. It's a shame. They couldn't have found that out before the election, and it could have worked with us to get him out of office. Yeah. But you know, the the information comes fast, I'm Serb Steve king will like, you know, make a nice living like addressing like European fascist soccer club stuff like. Daily is already started to build his set. I think but the this. Here's the interesting part. There's a lot of people are probably wondering why now, and it is because the Democrats have the ability to control the agenda in the house and. That makes Steve king more of a liability than he was two months ago. And they had the ability to vote to censure him which would have kept it in the news, and the Republicans thought, okay, this is this the definition of this guy taken one for the team. And it also gives us an opportunity to talk about proceeded to leave in the fact that the Democrats won't censure her for saying MO photo. But also, she said that Arab civilization can't be saved with gypsy babies. That's and that because we created fucking algebra was I believe the direct quote and just because she thinks that the Arabs are particularly blessed by Allah doesn't mean that she thinks allies other creations aren't valid, but just inferior. So I think we need to be really fair here about what she actually said. I love my row sheet. It's lip sausages Jimmy door, right? Exactly. We created Falkland algebraic. I mean, it's basically look they are in a the the they are on the back of their heels because they're getting blamed for the shutdown. They did not want the twin sort of like recommendations of being coddling to a racist. And also denying basic services to Americans think bottling. Bottling racist and cuddling to a racist. It takes two to Tango. That's right. Temp. Forget. We look we're all implicated in this too. Because we all heard what Stephen King said. And if we hadn't heard what he said, then would he have said it? On your own hand. Steve king of saying absolutely racist things on the other hand, we're a lot of Djelic rats or hearing what he's saying. So there's a lot of both sides of this, Kathy. You just just briefly..
