Fresh update on "street journal" discussed on The Clay Travis and Buck Sexton Show
"Clay Travis and buck Sexton Sound off Welcome back into clay Travis buck Sexton show We are rolling through the Wednesday edition of the program Joint now by Heather McDonald she is a senior fellow at the Manhattan institute a contributing editor at city journal and the author of the bestselling book wore on cops Heather thanks for joining us I got to say your data and your analysis of that data which I have read a lot distributed through The Wall Street Journal editorial page has been so fabulously well done Thank you for the work that you have that you have produced and also for the impact you have you have had in terms of helping to fight back against the onslaught of defund the police Why do you think there is such antipathy towards police How do we end it and will we ever end it Well thank you so much We ended by being realistic about crime in this country The Americans are turning their eyes away from the civilizational breakdown in the inner city that is leading to these utterly barbaric insane drive by shootings that are taking every single day Literally dozens of black lives the country doesn't want to confront that and instead we're blaming the messenger We're blaming the cops they can not fight crime without having a disparate impact racially Everything that's happening today in the criminal justice system claim buck can be explained by two words disparate impact We are unwinding criminal law enforcement or unwinding incarceration because you can not enforce the law without having a disparate impact on black criminals Why are we doing that Why do we want to enforce the law to save black lives There is no government agency more dedicated to the proposition that Black Lives Matter than the police and what we've seen in the time since the George Floyd race riots the police have backed off the result was utterly predictable The largest one year increase in homicide in this nation's history 30% we have to stop demonizing Joe Biden has to stop putting out this lie that the biggest thing that black parents have to fear when their children walk out the door is the police That is utterly fantastical and it continues to escape go to profession that is really in these inner city neighborhoods The only thing standing beside the thousands of good law abiding residents that live there and utter anarchy We're speaking to Heather McDonald author of the war on cops and excellent book I recommend to all of you I have my copy at home Heather it's buck I want to know what you can tell us about whether we are seeing a bit of a final turning of the tide enough pushback against you mentioned disparate impact and the way this affects law enforcement The amount of theft that is going on really systematic shoplifting and just looting actually I think when you have a bag and you are just taking all the most high priced items you can get your hand on throwing it in the bag in broad daylight and walking not even necessarily running out of a store it's clear to people seeing that how there's something going on Is there finally push back for the district attorneys Because that's not even necessarily a police level That's a legislative and district attorney issue in places like California and New York are we seeing that backlash Not enough frankly I mean we had some of the most left wing prosecutors in the country reelected in the last election cycle And you're right but it is we have given up on bourgeois or norms of respect for property Why again Because they have disparate impact that we are living this experiment in progressive ideology which is that you can unwind law enforcement and you're going to have peace and love Instead what you get is barbarism anarchy unbridled theft unbridled attacks It's tragic in San Francisco when you have Walgreens shutting dozens of stores simply because it does not want to have to cost and arrest shoplifters again because of disparate impact The result is is that senior citizens who depend on those pharmacies for their drugs are out of luck The law abiding people are being sacrificed in order not to have a conversation about what's going on in the inner city The thing to watch for everybody is what happens in Minneapolis Minneapolis was the start of this latest wave of anti cop hatred after George Floyd They've lost about a third of their police department You've had when Al sharpton was there celebrating the one year anniversary of the George Floyd death at that time you'd had two girls a 9 year old and a 6 year old in the last couple of days right before that having been shot in the head by these insane drive by shootings who died in a ten year old boy who was shot in the head in his parents car who is on life support and brain dead for the rest of his life Not a word from Al sharpton and Benjamin crump but Minneapolis has a vote coming up on its progressive attempts to unwind the police department and replace it with social workers I don't think that that initiative is going to pass That would be a good sign but I frankly do not see enough pushback The progressives are still pushing the phony narrative that we are living under systemic racism which is not the case we are living under bad behavior that has consequences We don't have an incarceration problem in this country We don't have mass incarceration We have a crime problem We're talking to Heather McDonald Heather you had a staff that blew my mind And I want to ask you to share it with our audience because I think a lot of people might not have heard it We hear all the time oh my God the police they're so racist like you said there's the narrative that is being shared that black people are in danger of being murdered by police at a regular level even though 75% of people shot by police are white Asian or Hispanic and even though over 50% of all murders are committed by black people in.

New York Must Allow Religious Exemptions to COVID-19 Vaccine Mandate, Judge Rules
"Out of New York of all places, a federal judge. Extended the order requiring New York State to allow religious exemptions from its COVID-19 vaccinations. From that mandate for healthcare workers, it's a ruling that could help shape the legal landscape according to The Wall Street Journal around government required shots. This week, U.S. district judge David heard in Utica, New York ruled that the mandate conflicted with individuals federally protected right to seek religious accommodation from their employers. And Mark has this kind of bizarre all people are just faking it and you just can't throw that around. You have to have a sincere religious exemption. Well, Mark, you don't get to decide who has a sincere religious belief. We can't tell other people that. The guy I interviewed from Columbia South Carolina this week, he's a staunch Catholic. He says Mike Catholic beliefs. Impacted my decision to refuse to get the vaccine. Now this popular sportscaster is out of a job because his company fired him. You don't get to decide that for other people, but all of a sudden, conservatives think that's okay. That doesn't feel right

"street journal" Discussed on The Kicker
"And they've gone back to sort of appealing to people's you know financial concerns although they still have a powerful and Large washington bureau But yeah i mean that was. It seems that was murdoch's business strategy at a certain point in it seems like it's still part of that but But it seems like they backed away from that to a certain extent but in terms of the you know. They seem to be very aware of what they consider. The new york times woke take on politics in and sort of balancing the record. A lot of reporters complained that you know they. They felt almost the need to respond to the way the new york times was covering the story. They weren't discovering it. They were looking at the way. The new york times is covering it and then trying to counterbalance that that's been a tendency to a certain extent this whole thing about not wanting to seem woke. Which is there with the way they think about it. Flies in the face of this other tension. They have which is That you know that they're not covering race at all And that in fact there is a lot of discontent that you report on from people on the staff who who do think this. There was enormous miss here in terms of covering race in the country. Right yeah i mean i just really. I really got the impression that there's a big you know the core of the wall street journal's readership. Is you know elderly white men and they just really don't want to. They don't really don't want to be labeled woke and they really don't want it anger that core readership so anything that might sort of upset them or feed into this culture war or allow people to you know You know they're just going out of their way to not upset them. So you know one of the reporters said we can write about hispanics buying homes but we can't write about you know. White people refusing to sell hispanic people homes in their neighborhoods. You know any anything that touches. Some of these cultural third rails. They're they're very careful about and standards gets involved and I don't know you know one of the examples That i didn't make it into the story But that i know that pissed off. A lot of people in the washington bureau was I mean this isn't necessarily race but In in june when You know when trump went over to saint. John's church and drew in posed for photos When when the police moved in sort of tear gas people The story that ran was it was very it was the entire media was was Talking about the backlash of trump walking across the saint. John's episcopal church With the bible and and protesters being teargassed but the wall street journal story it. Just the first paragraph said that drew broad criticism while garnering praise from conservative backers in the second graph is it was reassuring moment that law and order was restored for his backers right..
"street journal" Discussed on The Kicker
"To the kicker compile editor and publisher the columbia journalism review this week covering politics in a divided country so donald trump ended a lot of norms in america but one of the things that he changed dramatically was the way journalism writes about politics It got a lot of newsrooms rethinking how to approach politics. How to do it better how to do differently. What what to say what. They can't say And this fallout is still continuing the fact. The latest print issue of c. jr is called reset.

Masks on Kids: Science or Abuse?
"Have to ask ourselves. The question is the chinese corona virus. The chief virus a serious threat to children. That's the first question. And so dr maccari wrote a story wrote a piece. I should say for the wall street journal where he studied. Tens of thousands of over forty thousand children with the virus was not able to find one child that died from the virus that did not have underlying health conditions and didn't have Some sort of immuno-compromised condition. And so you look even more broadly than that. This is from the new york times. I just wanna read this. Which has annual deaths among children in the united states. now this is per one hundred thousand people so children five fourteen years old. Have a two point one per one hundred thousand chance of dying from cancer. A one point nine per one hundred thousand chance of dying from vehicle accidents one point five per one hundred thousand die from suicide. We'll get back to that in the second point. Seven from homicide point six from cardiovascular disease point five from drowning point three from flu and point to from cova no that's not percentage that's per one hundred thousand so the question is if children are at greater risk of writing a clark school than while the sudden we now mandate the mass for children's. I think we're talking about two different things. And i think we'll have a fun time. Going back and forth at the unscripted part of this is do. Schools have the ability in the authority. And is it a good idea. I'm gonna start with whether it's a good idea that we can get into the other one. It's an awful idea. it's bad for interaction. it's bad for childhood development. We already see the increase in mental health issues that i will go through some numbers associated with that but everyone is kind of experienced that in their own way and saying to a child who is not at considerable risk of dying from a certain virus. That you must change the way you interact. I think it's child
Professor Files Lawsuit Over University Vaccine Mandate
"Welcome back by friends. I'm dennis prager and a professor on todd. Zoecke z. y. W i c k by a professor of law george mason university and a fellow at the cato institute in august believe it was august. Let me see here. you wrote a piece in the The wall street journal was august professor. There why gogga's that's right down is so you wrote a about why you're not going to follow your universities. Demand that you get a vaccination for cans covert in order to be able to return to campus and you cited the fact that you had in fact cova and in fact was was when you took tests. You've had the antibodies to kovin. They stay continued to stay in your body and so you sued. george mason. Is that correct cats correct and it's okay. Yup no no you go ahead. Yeah so i so. I tried to resolve this the nice way. Then it's wages. I tried to torch mason claims to the place the respect science that Respects truth so. I reached out over the summer After i contacted by immunologists and i did a full immunity workup including an anti bodies tests. That showed that my anybody's level With comparable to somebody who had been fully vaccinated And And there's more there's more than you needed that but this is sort of a slam dunk case is this is how you measure of somebody's immune protection listens how they measure whether somebody needs a booster shot for any for any disease whether it's measles or covert or anything else And so. I reached out. And i said here's here's the evidence They blew me off. I reached out to again. And i'd attached an affidavit from my immunologist as well as to leading public Stoller sir. I'm sure you're familiar with jay body charge at stanford martin cool dorks harvard. The presenting all the evidence to show this george mason again. Just blew me off Issue their policy saying that everybody had to get back and and so i reached out to the new civil liberties alliance at that point and some ask them to represent me so we brought a lawsuit eventually george mason and they're giving the medical exemption after all this In civil and changed the rules so that wasn't being disadvantaged as much as i had so the lawsuit itself has been resolved. But now there's you know many cases now following raising the same issue as vaccine mandates of spread around the country.
The Left Ruins Everything It Touches
"Hello my friends. Dennis prager here. A reminder what the democrats are doing to this country he's ruining it. The democratic party is ruining the united states of america because it's controlled by the left and the left ruins everything touches to deny that is to engage in wishful thinking and it's inexcusable means. You don't have the courage to say the left is is evil. The left is evil. The left everywhere is evil. Not liberals liberals are my eve liberals often lack courage politically. They're often wonderful individuals. I love some of them personally but they won't acknowledge because it's very hard to stare at evil to destroy america. The last best hope of mankind is that's not evil then. I need a definition of evil. So i'm very specific. And what. I mean by evil in this case. They're destroying this country. Intentionally taxpayer payers should understand. The magnitude of the benefits is the wall street journal editorial about the the The new entitlements that they are giving for children basic income for families with children basic income for all families before the expansion the average child credit for a family below one hundred percent of the poverty line was about nine hundred. Seventy five dollars now. It's five thousand. Four hundred twenty one dollars that comes on top of their transfer programs such as food stamps and the earned income tax credit. The child entitlement will reach well into the middle class which is part of the political goal of course at the end of democracy when people understand. They could vote for politicians. Who will give them money. That's it it's over then nobody votes for what's better for the country they vote for. How do i get more money.
Area Libraries, Bookstores Celebrate Banned Book Week
"There is a piece in the wall street journal by the president of regna. Repoed publishing full disclosure. They are the publishers of many of my books and all of my books in the rational bible series and i have appreciated their worked tremendously. Tom spence is. The president is piece in the wall. Street journal is about banned books. So tom first of all of course. Welcome to the show. Thanks dennis happy to be here. I'll bet are and i'm happy that you are. What is there. Every year is that there's a banned books week or something. What is it called. Yes it banned books week. It's a week long promotion in the book. Trade that sponsored by the american library association the american booksellers association and several other organizations. It's the last week of september so begins. It begins next week. And it's a way to promote books that have been ostensibly banned. The the joke of it is that the books that are promoted year after year have not been banned in any meaningful sense and now the books that are in some real sense. Being banned are studiously ignored by ban. Books week policy in the book but hypocrisies two-mile a term. It's orwellian the books that are banned are not mentioned during banned books weeks and books that our peripheral band give me an example of what they say is banned so so yeah i mean obviously it depends on how you define your terms so if i if i describe a book if i tell you that a book has been banned. What does that mean to you. What's your first thought that it is no longer available to the public right. I think that's a reasonable definition. So if i'm living in soviet union in the you know nineteen eighty five. And i want to buy the gulag archipelago. Am i gonna find it kid. It's been banned right the government or somebody with authority to the power to do. It has made that book unavailable.
Pastor Robert Jeffress and His Plan for Encouragement
"Morning pastor. How are you good morning. Hugh great to be with you. This is an encouraging buck. It's it's really overdue. Did you find yourself surrounded by cova fatigued people in your congregation who needed to lift up. Absolutely you know what hugh and the bible of nouns are symbolic of the obstacles that stand between us and god's blessing tune our life. And that's why subtitled the book invincible. Conquering the mountains. That separate you from the blessed life and after eighteen months of covert and political unrest and racial division. I mean people have been overcome would grief for loneliness fear or worry and in this book. I talked about how to conquer those mountains. You know jesus said if you have the faith as tiny as a mustard seed. You can move mountains. And he wasn't speaking literally but he was speaking truthfully and these mountains that we're all facing you We can conquer them without allowing them to conquer us. And that's what i talked about in the book. The wall street journal had a story over the weekend. Pastor jeffress that stated that americans are angrier and crankier in more quick to get into an argument and causes seen an airplane or a restaurant or supermarket store than in history. Just worn out and fatigue to which i responded. We actually have no real problems in america compared to people in afghanistan or looking at the taliban trying to kill them and that that's useful to remember but it's also a religious obligation for people who are christians not to be that way correct. That's exactly right. And it's been a little bit discouraging for me. As a pastor to see you know evangelical christians kind of at the forefront of a lot of this division. And look you know i i. We can have disagreements about issues like the vaccines or other things that are going on but look you know. I liked what Saint augustine said he said in the essentials unity in non essentials liberty but in all things. Charity we don't have to be mad and hateful and foaming at the mouth to have a difference of opinion.
America's Children Are Desperate to Be Ruled
"This Wall Street Journal article this week. These two researchers who talk about how the country no longer has moorings to family and God and local civics groups and things like this.

They love it while they laugh at two year olds crying. Oh, my gosh, This kid is crying on too bad, huh? That little turd. He better put that mask on his face. That's how sick these people are. Then you've got 50% of the country says Hey, if I want to wear a mask or wear a mask, If I want to take a vaccine, I'll take a vaccine. But, you know, I live in a free country. I'll make those decisions myself. Thank you very much. If you want to stay home and live your life in fear find you do that. And they think where the crazy
"street journal" Discussed on Techmeme Ride Home
"Welcome to the right home for friday. September seventeenth twenty twenty one. I'm brian mccullough. Today a deep dive. Summary of the rolling facebook controversies this week from the ongoing wall street journal reporting apple and google removing app from russian opposition after their employees. Were threatened in that country and of course the weekend long read suggestions this time with extra. Nfc goodness here's what you missed today in the world of tech. I've mentioned already this week. That facebook has had a hell of a week with the wall street journal. Dropping a bombshell story about them. Seemingly every day often using internal facebook documents for example yesterday the headlines were about how internal docs allegedly revealed facebook's weak response after staff flagged human traffickers and drug cartels using its platforms for recruitment in developing countries quote employees flagged that human traffickers in the middle east had used the site to lure women into abusive employment situations in which they were treated like. Slaves are forced to perform sex work. They warned that armed groups in ethiopia. Use the site to incite violence against ethnic minorities. They sent alerts to their bosses on organ selling pornography and government action against political dissent. According to the documents. Facebook removes some pages though many more operate openly. According to the documents in some countries where facebook operates it has few or no people who speak the dialects needed to identify dangerous or criminal uses of the platform. The documents show when problems have surfaced publicly. facebook has said it addressed them by taking down offending post. But it hasn't fixed the systems that allowed defenders to repeat the bad behavior instead priority is given to retaining users helping business partners and at times placating authoritarian governments whose support facebook sometimes needs to operate within their borders. The documents show facebook treats hermit developing countries as simply the cost of doing business and quote in those places said. Brian bolland a former facebook. Vice president who oversaw partnerships with internet providers in africa and asia before resigning at the end of last year. Facebook has focused its safety efforts on wealthier markets with powerful governments and media institutions. He said even as it has turned to poor countries for user growth and quote and now this morning the headline is that internal documents show. How anti vacs activists flooded vaccine content on facebook with negative comments despite mark zuckerberg pushed to promote cove in nineteen vaccines. You might remember how zuckerberg and facebook at the beginning of the year. Made a big show of saying how they were going to promote vaccine outreach. But according to the journal quote in the weeks before mr zuckerberg made his announcement another memo said initial testing concluded that roughly forty one percent of comments on english. Language vaccine related posts wrist discouraging. Vaccinations users were seeing comments. On vaccine related post seven hundred seventy five million times a day the memo said and facebook researchers were the large proportion of negative comments could influence perceptions of the vaccine safety even authoritative sources of vaccine information. We're becoming quote cesspool of anti vaccine comments. The authors wrote. That's a huge problem and we need to fix it. They said facebook's goal of protecting the roll out of the cupboard vaccines described in one memo as a quote top company priority end quote was a demonstration of mr zuckerberg faith at his creation is a force for social good in the world but the effort ended up demonstrating the gulf between his aspirations and the practical reality of the world's largest social platform where the company's aims can bring it into conflict with its own users. Despite mr zuckerberg's effort a cadre of anti vaccine activists flooded the network with what facebook calls quote barrier vaccination and quote content. The memo show they use facebook's own tools to so doubt about the severity of the pandemic threat and the safety of authorities main weapon to combat it and quote if new scandalous headlines in the journal every day was not enough head of instagram adam. Massery went on our friend. Peter kafka's podcast yesterday to push back on those earlier wall street journal scoops. That suggested that instagram was bad for teenage girls. And well this happened quoting cnbc. Adam massery the head of facebook. Instagram service came under a flurry of criticism thursday. After comparing the value of social networks to society to that of cars quote we know that more people die than would otherwise because of car accidents but by and large cards create way more value in the world than they destroy. Massery said wednesday on the recode media. Podcast and i think social media is similar and quote. Missouri's comparison of instagram. Two cars came after podcast host. Peter kafka asked the executive if the service should be pulled a restricted. If there's a chance it could really harm people in the same way that say cigarettes can harm people quote absolutely not and i really don't agree with the comparison to drugs or cigarettes which have very limited if any upsides massery said anything that is going to be used at scale is going to have positive and negative outcomes. Cars have positive and negative outcomes and quote. Numerous twitter users criticized massery for the comparison and pointed out that unlike social media. The automobile industry is heavily. Regulated among those critics was former facebook executive. Brian bowen quote. We have regulations and the national highway traffic safety administration for cars. Maybe adam azeri should read unsafe at any speed. Bullen tweeted kafka asked about the regulation surrounding cars which massery responded he does believe that some social media regulation is needed quote. We think you have to be careful. Because regulation can cause more problems. Misteri set on the podcast. But i do think we are a big enough industry that it's important and we need to evolve it forward and quote massery went on the defensive on twitter after the wave of criticism calling the car analogy quote less than perfect but saying that facebook executive stand by the belief that social media connecting people does more harm than bad quote headline culture. Which yes i know. Social media has contributed to is exhausting. Massery said among his series of tweets thursday morning and quote Yes the endless series of facebook. Controversies can be exhausting. Take it from someone who has to cover. These controversies every day. And i've only been doing it for a little under four years. But at the same time i kind of think that that's the point and that's why i'm devoting half the show today to this because again there have been new stories and new allegations every single day this week. Stop for a second and ask yourself why. That is i mean. Facebook has had controversies from the day it was created. So why is this all coming out now. Well as everyone in tech has been whispering about this week it is clear that the calls are coming from inside the facebook house itself. Clearly someone either. Formerly or currently at facebook is leaking this stuff. So is there a larger rebellion going on inside facebook than we know about. Let me quote this tweet thread from former facebook executive alex thomas quote. The facebook files reporting is incredible necessary and damning and misleading. The public about. It is inexcusable. But this stuff must exist on other platforms to right. Why are they less leaky. Will this disincentivize this kind of research in the future. How do we stop that. I think the big picture is that several mid level vp's and directors invested and built big quantitative social science teams on the belief that knowing what was wrong with lead to positive change those teams have run into the power of the growth and unified policy. Teams turns out. The knowledge isn't helpful. When the top execs haven't changed the way products are measured and employees are compensated so the only recourse for those teams to affect. Change is leaking to the wall street journal. I'm sure other products have the same impact some problems but they are either too small twitter and snap to build these big expensive teams that don't drive revenue or have a strategy of not looking youtube and quote in other words if you're a talented smart perhaps idealistic person who has gone to work for facebook for the last five years. At least you knew that working at facebook would be. Shall we say controversial. Some folks would look at you sideways if you mentioned where you worked but maybe you could justify it all to yourself by saying it's okay 'cause we can change things i by being here. We'll change things. Social media is new. We just haven't perfected it yet..

It's like a joint larder right where they can go into for nighttime snack. Yeah they they need a lot. The about six percent and worms every day and they're borrows a really intricate special rooms sleeping for giving birth and for storing. They're kind of like having a kitchen larder pantry. But it's well it's not to my taste but it works for them. Yeah i think foreign seventies quiet lot though. It's like their panic isn't it. Yeah that's pandemic purchasing isn't it. They know some of these special rooms for giving birth and they can't use those very often so we have thousands well underway and we and you wouldn't earthworms in the same room mandy. It's very health and safety problematic completely complaining. All i'm saying is that if you've only got the number of rooms in your home okay. Tavist specific maternity unit room. In your house. I don't have that in my house. I've got a kitchen and living room and a bedroom. But if you were a mole like so dig up to twenty meters a tunnel a day. So you've got a hold of them and they're digging. You could probably add an extension on pretty quick whereas if you're adding it's your house on the take you more than a day probably especially it just having to issues no doubt i love the way that they catch the worms one of the ways they do. Is they dig a tunnel. The words just fall into it. That's how they got so many. Just wait for it. of course exactly much. You're a worm. Just kind of go to route john. Daily business burrowing in the silence suddenly just fall into a bus if of your enemy get fertilizer dead frenzy. All your friends are. Yeah but here's a question. So i was reading that they stored the worms and there was a suggestion in what i read is that they've immobilized the worms with a bite to the head so there still alive not dead yet they may be brain dead but there's sort of fresh because they're still living so is that right they're not actually dead in that larger like putting them in the fridge but it's like a living rich yes so that more than worms are going to go off. They can eat them later but they call so call away. It's very clever. I think they can get paralyzed by light. You say i think they can get paralyzed by being bitten at the back of the head. Which kind of stops them being able to wriggle around by think. The moles might also be kind of poisonous or venomous as well stuff in their saliva. Different types of moles. yeah. I think there's a labor do stuff as that's right and i think shrews with the same. This kind of toxin called blurry no toxin especially intrigued by thinking moses. Well if they bite humans as well then you can get a little bit of a bit. A bee sting or wasp sting got bad swelling. So they aren't quite venomous. Whoa just on on being bitten by moles malls have really brady strong and there was a belief in the eighteenth century that if you held a mullet you'll hand until it died. Your hand would acquire healing power right okay so if you just kind of it and you has now the problem is. They're so strong. There's a mole. Expert called mark haber and i read an interview with him. And he said that moses stronger than people he said that if you picks up a bowl and hell yet don't show if you pick up a mole between your hands even if you're really strong even your manual labor or something it will be able to burst.

The twenty spring was like well. This is the challenge. Let's film the moles. But they got. Peter stafford back to help them there. He is like the guy for filming molds in their burrows. they're very mysterious. Have you guys heard of mulji. No hug so this is a thing that's been coined by geico. Yes berman. and he's a archaeologist who basically made an application to the danish cultural agency to say. We want to use moles to help us. Do our archaeological digs the idea. Was that if you have mould burrowing down into potential sites where you believe there to be hidden cities in the digging the stuff that comes to the surface might have shards of pottery little elements of these bits of archaeological brick or whatever and so he's dubbed it mulji and they do the work for him so they don't desecrate the area and potentially ruin ancient sites. Do they not think that. Like ancient egyptians were just all eating earthworms usa. But that's happened that's happening in the uk as well there are moles basically working encumbrance cumbria old roman for experts protected. So you're not let to dig their if you're a human are not bound by such rules and so there are. There are a whole team of human volunteers whose job it is to go through the molehills. And find out what they've turfed up as they're digging and so far the malls. Fm pottery beads. And my favorite a decorative bronze plan which makes me think that.

Got the original molehill data Another thing that mold as they got really fast reactions so the star nosed mole actually has the guinness world record for being the fastest eater on the planet so it can basically a snack eat it and then move onto looking for next one. In two hundred thirty milliseconds the average the fastest one one hundred and twenty milliseconds and for comparison takes humans six hundred and fifty seconds to respond to a red light.

R. fifteen she says it's it's too heavy I can't lift it by the way they are is not a very heavy thing but I I get the point Nash Walt white did you buy it and she said well if I need it I'm sure I'll find a good person to lift it for me for what reason and she hesitated for a moment and then said I think there's a revolution coming I believe there's a civil war coming and many people have said that something along those lines made a remarkable amount of people have said something along those lines they cannot quite add the meat to the bones to explain how it would it would unfold pretty sure nobody figured out how the real civil war was going to unfold in retrospect you can see all the mistakes that were made do you feel like there is a civil war brewing and over what help war doesn't happen when times are good when times are bad that that things become very volatile that's why for me the biggest without a doubt the biggest the biggest way to promote peace is with a stable economy that makes sense with a stable economy things are good when the Connie collapses as it did in Europe as it was doing in the United States during the thirties that's when terrible things can happen and I do mean terrible things it's why I worry so much about about economics do you worry that there could be a revolution that there could be a civil war I wonder what that looks like and I wonder how we decide where the sites are part of me wonders about guns and the emotionalism over which guns play a role and if there was ever going to be a point where bullets start to fly it could be over gun confiscation and we're seeing the seeds of that now we're seeing the seeds of that in Colorado's red flag law what's called the blow what is that called merging sees something restraining order the order that a red flag law could be the thing that starts some gun confiscation because people like me will never just give up their guns they will fight will that be the time where where it happens will it be when cities take too much control I saw a the picture was it it was a terrific picture was called the Clinton archipelago Google that and what they did is they just took all the counties that voted for Clinton in the last election and and put those on the map and everything else that wasn't an area that was then elected Clinton they just put water so imagine a map of the United States you get east coast west coast but it's all water when you do that you see that really we have the United cities of America and it looked like Indonesia we're just islands on the west coast islands on the east coast water throughout America it got the point across if it makes sense it got the point across that cities have all the power cities have have such incredible population on the left it's almost like the hunger games where the city's the city capital city has all the power but it's the districts that do all the work could this upcoming fight be instead of between north and south to be rural versus urban I don't know but I'm sensing a lot of people feel pardon me for being vague feel like there is a coming calamity now the church could be are all full nature they could just be the way that the way that we I see the world but I'm not alone I think a lot of it has to do with these changing values that is when more and more people want a guaranteed outcome they want something for nothing they want something for nothing and when they do somebody else has to pay for it that is on the sustainable when does a break three of three seven one three eight two five five seven one three talk to it we'll go to a quick break we'll do the news but I want to talk about guns and I had a very interesting experience over the last two weeks about guns and my phone to change the culture I was surprised.

"I is a is a pretty good leading us down. You'll pay will is hard paywall right now. It's random. I mean, it's it's like we we have maybe not random that's the technical term. But. Twenty percents about like fifteen percent of the content is is buying the pay wall. And it's determined with an algorithm, which is me determining which which stories is going to be behind the pay wall. But then there's exclusive content that we have research, and it's different from our core content. But we're deciding whether to move to just a cleaner more like a metered model of saying, we're not gonna have propensity engine unless you wanna loan it to a so in lieu of that just moving to a cleaner model of saying, okay? You can get I don't know where the break point is four stories five stories a month, but beyond that year need to pay us because it like anyone we find is you've got a you've got a not a small, but like, you know, about like seventeen eighteen percent of your. It's the old eighty twenty rule like, you know, like twenty percent of your audience is like not consuming like three or four pages. But like puns. And you get a bunch of people who come in through side doors that, you know, consume a few few stories among. Yeah. Listen. I mean, the metoo muddle by his is well, the New York Times of made it what I'm so there's value in it. But they've been tightening. I mean, it seems like more of the it seems like more people move towards a tighter paywall as they go on. I mean, this is funny because he looked back and it was that. Off three many of us have copied and pasted Wall Street Journal headlines in the past generally say funny because actually part of that pay will project was literally looking at you know, where all the side door access points the being used, and and I click Frei was, you know, the the big battle that you guess fought it was in. That was a big reason why explain that for people who don't know free. So free was a Google policy and that meant the when people came through Google to publish his website. The first click, and therefore the first story would be would be affectively free. And we disa- testing around that to see what what would happen if if it wasn't and people a new flexible, and that's kind of was point that we're building a pay will that was designed to be flexible based on. On the user say a one-size-fits-all ruled was not going to work for flexible payroll, and we still some pretty pretty good upside from from that and say, that's why we while we put out a first lake free and oversee since then give 'em launched flexible sampling, which is much more. I guess in line with much more in line with a paywall is today. Right. Which is having the the ability to be flexible in terms of experience that you receive right on just to stay on that like what role? Do you see the platforms playing in your subscription strategy? That they I mean, everyone from Google to Facebook to to to apple news. Yeah. I mean, what wide ranging I I guess my, you know, I sell great journalism every day. Right. And I think the first thing is to an understanding of how valuable, you know, generals amaze. And I think that, you know, Google I'm Facebook right through that that news initiatives of definitely come round to the idea. The there is value in journalism, and the journalism should be should be paid for which I think is a great great star. I think the the again, there is no blueprint. There isn't I book that says this is how you should use the platforms in your in your subscription business. But you know, we we use them for different reasons. I mean, Facebook's Facebook's platform full and distributing content to non to know members is also could. Platform to bring our existing members back to the Wall Street, Geno..

"I will you come. We'll we'll give you a school and that school will determine what your experience will be and what kind of things go into that propensity score. What what what impacts it? Yes, broadly, speaking, this is about sixty five variables are in the metal through all of them. You'll be the night. But I mean, it's broadly speaking this fast party in third party, data the first party data. Not surprisingly, the most powerful, you know, you'll visitation count of plays plays a big role, and the device type that you're on you know, you on desktop or your mobile are you on I s or you on Android? They player they play a role the types of content that you consume can. Can play a role. And then when you start thinking about third party signals, you know, where you live, right? So we'll see we can we invite your location, and actually where you live has a huge bearing on whether you're going to subscribe on because then you can infer educational attainment. I'm you can infer household income, etc. Etc. And actually areas what the densely populated have a we'll score highly. So there's not there's not one signal that because if it was just one signal, then you wouldn't need a propensity model that one signal right? So it is a broad range. And they're not a not all of those signals going to be relevant for everyone, which is the suppose the complex nature of the model is the it is designed to be a individual skull people in individual. So why why does this model work best for the journal versus say a meter model? A lot. People now are are new to the to the subscriptions, and they're going with some version of a meter because the hard paywall was thought to be too blunt and the meter is you know, it's like the in between choice. Yeah. I'm always the metoo still assumes that everybody needs the same amount of exposure to that content still setting a rule based on the content and not necessarily on the on the customer. Right. So basically, this is just a lot more flexible and targeted and sort of more nuance to the user right in well confusing as far as like to the user like, I'm not sure what I get you know, as a non subscriber. And what I don't get because the product is different based on who I am. And who who someone else's or what device I'm on? And I mean the lottery the the products the same the experience. Inexperienced will. Yeah. I'm. And listen, we of course, when we subscription I so that's like it's like, well, this is our business. I don't think it will be a surprise to people to run into a paywall. The Wall Street Journal Reich is running around for a while. And actually the experience the customer experience present Phil when he different to what it was right? Because when you came to the Street Journal, though, still some content Peyton some content. You know, free an away doing now is being more selective with with how. And where we do that sampling. Do you find an I know they're it depends. There's there's so many signals, but it would seem to me that someone has to hit the the the wall a certain number of times generally before they're like, okay. Here's my credit card. Got me a frequency frequency is..

"On subscriptions before everyone made this pivot to paid was. Well, the Wall Street Journal is the outlier because it's other people's money as like business class airfare, a lot of people are willing to to pay extra for that. Yeah. It's a great question. We that may be where we were. But we've I think as we've grown. I'm we've we've set any grow into a. I guess a mole be to see rather than to see for P, and that's really been the growth in the core. The core business is is broadened broadening our reach broadening our appeal to different audiences. I mean, they me wrong. The the corporate credit card of these plays a role and retention race. You know, always good with coporate credit cards, but other we have a problem because so many people change jobs in the media and marketing history so quickly that there they take with them their their corporate card. So I don't know if you have any ideas on that one. Yeah. I'm. Yeah. I would I maybe maybe think about encouraging them to sign up without without that work Email that Pasolini you've got away to exactly in them. Okay. So explain the setup of of of your group particular. Yes, the cool membership team again, this this this probably right or wrong answer. But our starting point was the customer, broadly speaking, we think about the subscriptions customer journey as a bowtie say you've got the discover phase, you got the convert phase, and you've got engaged, retain, and this basically within my team the seven different functions within the team and each function, basically take part of that subscription life cycle. And so each point of the scripture in life cycle, there is a team of people worrying about what they need to do to move the the subscriber or the member in our case down the down the funnel to become a member or to engage retain them as they become as they become members. And this involves the customer journey and stuff. I I'm now well aware of this because of our own meme. Ship program. Our team is always talking about customer journeys. Yeah. I mean, I've had a funnels of had bow ties this lots of or Doges general journeys, lots of ways to think about it. But I think if you start with the customer, then then, you know, pretty good place to stop because you are. You'll following their their journey that journey with you. Yeah. So let's talk about the each of the phases discovery..

"Because obviously the Wall Street Journal has had subscriptions for quite a long time. And now with everyone going into subscriptions, you know, people come at it from different from different areas. Yeah. Yeah. The generals how to pay since ninety seven. I I was at school in ninety seven. But yes, started I didn't start it. And I can't take the credit for it. But I I started I'm actually originally from from the UK so across the Atlantic to get to the journal, but was at sister publication say the times of London, I'm and then the sun sun newspaper, always been a Marketa. I'm anne. Now, marketing and sales is my is my thing. Okay. So explain the makeup of the Wall Street Journal subscriptions group is it a group because it's it's different from circulation, and I'm sure every single every single company has a different setup. And it really depends on a lot of things. But particularly, you know, where they come from when when he come from a newspaper, you're gonna have you're gonna have a different setup because you have a circulation department, but explain how it set up at the journal. Yeah, I think the structure really matters is is very my first for the first point. And for us. We we we structured around the customer. So broadly speaking, we kind of said, this this three different types of customer that we want to grow membership for student membership business. I'm so the jam running the student membership business a cool membership business, which is what I run, and then also all professional business, which is Wall Street. Jen. Uh-huh. Pro and C suite verticals, if you think about almost the price of subscription or or Arpey as you come and go up Jane, the top of the pyramid is a high stop customers. And then students is all kind of entry entry method into the general. Okay. And so you're running the core. The people taking out and their credit card companies credit card and pane cracked. Yeah. How much of the business is corporate credit cards because I can always remember the knock.

"Wall Street Journal CMS, and nobody seems to have taken responsibility for it or whatever I like, you shouldn't be laughing about this because I actually know someone who did jail time because he allegedly leaked a log information in IRC that someone then briefly defaced a news organization's website. So these things can have consequences, which to me is kind of like, the the most potentially hilarious thing is I would like to see kind of like, you know, going to take us a while. You mean when you said the winner, the chicken dinner in fort night, tell us what word ain't that's what I'm saying. Like like Dow Jones really wants to haul out on this like that would actually be like really funny to have to see the brief. I would really love to read the complaint that would have to explain what all the things were. Yeah. She told the court will what what did this mean? And what was this and people like, no, no, no. It's a fortnight thing. We it's a joke. We didn't really wanna get anybody's credit card information. Oh, well, we think you did. So workshop, and you this knows, you know. Yeah. I mean it was Christmas early. Yeah. Well, played well played hackers. But also, what can you ask a point of order about this yet from this? This is why I didn't understand about this. So I get the news alert on my phone Wall Street Journal's been hacked like it's an apple news, and I'm expecting to go to the Wall Street Journal front page like say their CMS and like top story of my subscription. It's like PD pie, blah, blah, blah. But this isn't quite what happened it was harder site. So they ran an ABC through Wall Street Journal or some with the third party relationship with Wall Street Journal. Yeah. So Wall Street Journal has its own sponsored content thing that's word of It's its. advertising division. And so I guess that was like if you visit Wall Street Journal dot com might have had.
