Biden to Russia on detained US journalist: 'Let him go'

"President Biden is urging Russia to free a detained U.S. journalist. The message is simple. Let him go. The president pushing Russia to release The Wall Street Journal's Evan gerskovic, whom Moscow arrested on espionage charges. It's the first time an American journalist has been detained on spying accusations since the Cold War. The Biden administration calls the charge ridiculous and the targeting of Americans unacceptable, asked if he'd retaliate by expelling Russian diplomats or journalists from the U.S.. That's not the plan right now. Sagar Meghani, Washington.

Transgender Activists Plot Day of Revenge

"Apparently there are members of the trans community who are declaring a forthcoming day of vengeance. What is particularly interesting actually there are two particularly interesting aspects. One is that the mainstream media, which means the left wing media. There is no mainstream other than The Wall Street Journal. That and The Wall Street Journal news pages are while not as woke as The New York Times are not conservative there. Their opinion pages and valuable pages are. They are not reporting this apparently. Tucker Carlson made this point last night. And if that is accurate and I believe it is, it is extremely important. See, if people who are declared by the left as victims do bad, that undermines the victimhood status to a certain extent. And that can not be allowed. People who say that they are the other sex. Must not be judged by the normal moral standards of other people. The same holds true for all non white heterosexual, largely Christian groups on males. They're the only ones to be judged.

The Nashville Shooting Was a Hate Crime Against Christians

"The incident in Nashville, the mass shooting has got to be understood for what it is and anti Christian act. And act of terrorism against a Christian school and by the way an accompanying Christian church. By a transgender shooter who appears to have been motivated by transgender ideology. Now, how do we know this? Well, we know it in part because there is a manifesto and the manifesto is being withheld. It's being concealed. And in fact, I saw an article that LGBTQ activists are demanding that the manifesto not be released. In other words, that the motivation not be made clear. This allows outlets like CNN to go officials are still searching for the motivation. They actually know the motivation. They're just not telling us what it is. Now, the only honest it will headline about this episode is from the New York Post. I'm reading the headline, transgender killer targets Christian school, boom, says it right there. Identifies the victim, identifies the victim miser, who doesn't identify the ideology, but that is presumed behind it. And contrast this with the lying headline in Reuters. Which I'm going to read you now. Former Christian school student kills three children three staff in Nashville shooting. So the shooter is not identified as trans, but is identified as a former Christian school student. The assumption being that this is some intramural Christian dispute. The former student is upset with the school, there's probably some beef with the school's policies. And then I look at all these headlines, New York Times, Washington Post Wall Street Journal, Chicago Tribune, Chicago Tribune, pretty typical. 6 dead in shooting at Nashville school. They exclude the word transgender, they exclude the word. Christian.

The CFTC Sues Binance, But Is It Regulatory Turf War?

"So as I mentioned yesterday, the CFTC dropped a lawsuit against binance. And what we're going to do is go over the background and context. What the charges actually were and were not, what the proposed penalties are and why it might not have been entirely about binance per se. So first the background, like basically every other crypto exchange, binance has been in constant conversations with U.S. regulators for some time, especially for the past few months, however, there has been pretty rampant speculation around what the nature of those conversations might be. In December of last year, just about a month after FTX collapsed, Reuters ran an exclusive, saying that the Department of Justice was split around whether to bring criminal charges against binance. According to the peace, the DoJ's investigations of the company began in 2018. They were focused on binance's compliance with AML rules and sanctions and specifically they were looking into unlicensed money transmission, money laundering conspiracy and criminal sanctions violations. Reuters reporting suggested that some of the federal prosecutors involved believe that there was enough evidence to file criminal charges against the firm and founder CZ, but others didn't think so. What's more, Reuters also suggested that there were active discussions around potential plea deals. So this was December, obviously coming a month after FTX had everyone's gums flapping. Then in February, The Wall Street Journal published a piece where binance chief strategy officer Patrick hillman told the paper that binance was expecting to pay monetary penalties to settle ongoing investigations. Hillman basically said that while the company had strong compliance for the past few years, early in its life, there had been gaps that they expected to have regulators want to redress. The company is quote working with regulators to figure out what are the remediations we have to go through now to make amends for that. End quote. Hillman said that the outcome would quote likely be a fine could be more. We just don't know. That's for regulators to decide. And while hillman said he couldn't estimate the size of the fines or when it might be resolved, he said that the exchange was quote highly confident and feeling really good about where those discussions are going. Now this was, frankly, a pretty weird piece to have a story around. It was a very in between sort of story, right? There wasn't anything resolved, it was just one member of a negotiating party saying that things were going well. Regulators, as you might guess, tend not to like it when one of the parties they're negotiating with gives the press information,

While targeting will seek Russian weak spots, they are hoping from their blitzkrieg like they had last year, the Russian offensive is small, but we're talking about this is we're about World War I because it is that kind of a war and so the great German offensive would be followed by the great British and French offensive and then a German offensive than the Americans got into the war in April 1917, and it was over in 18 months. Because he just men and material flowed in from America into the trenches, the last offense of the ludendorff offensive, I believe it was called from Germany towards Paris failed, and then the weight of America was felt and it was rolled back. So Ukraine and Russia are sort of that way. Who's up? Who's down?

Barack Hussein Obama, somebody's pulling the strings here. Merrick Garland, somebody's telling this district attorney to forge ahead with a case, by the way, that a 7 years old that the federal authorities took a pass on. They looked at all the evidence. They said there's nothing here. As a matter of fact, The Wall Street Journal earlier today and in a staff editorial. An editorial board statement, they said that at worst, this is a misdemeanor. So what is this really all about? What we all know, we all know what this is about. This is about trying to stop president Trump from running for reelection. And if you think this Democrat D 8, who has funded by George Soros to the tune of at least a $1 million that we have been able to verify, if you think it's going to stop with that district attorney, you've got another thing coming. Because the folks in Fulton county, Georgia, the Atlanta area have their own investigations underway, and there are rumors that they may try to indict Trump on the RICO act. It's folks, I'm telling you, these people are unhinged. The downfall of America will be these George Soros funded district attorneys. We've got one here in Memphis, Tennessee. To my knowledge, we're not trying to indict Donald Trump here. I'm rather surprised by that, but there you go.

Executives at First Republic Sold Shares of Stock Prior to Crisis

"I want to get to the disturbing things that Janet Yellen said because it really calls into question whether or not they are in fact helping the system or trying to save the system. But first, according to a report in The Wall Street Journal, there may have been more corruption than we ever thought at some of these banks, including first republic, because we have learned and I do not believe this was some kind of auto sale, like what we saw over at SVB. We have learned that some of the top executives there sold their shares around March 6th, this would have been just days ahead of the crisis, and they pocketed millions of dollars in these transactions. Think about that. I mean, it kind of brings front and center, what everybody's worried about, which is that this is a rigged system where certain insiders have certain information and they're acting on that information. I'll tell you, someone needs to investigate this because if they did, there should be will be, I certainly hope AT double L to pay. Not good, not good. A lot of questions about that because by the way, normally you would file with the SEC this Securities and Exchange Commission whenever you have one of these stock sales and yet these guys over first republic according to The Wall Street Journal, they didn't. They didn't file the forms at the SEC. They only did it with the FDIC and I don't even understand how that happens, given that you're a publicly traded company. So this is weird. Really, really weird. And so now they're getting a bailout. I am sure there's a bunch of government pressure right now on some of the bigger banks to say, hey guys, we need your help here.

Are the WSJ Articles on Binance and Tether Trial by Press?

"Let's kick off with some good old fashioned tether FUD. On Friday, The Wall Street Journal reported that tether had used falsified documents and shell companies to obtain bank accounts, citing emails leaked to the newspaper they discussed some of the tactics used by tether and their intermediaries back in 2018. The article claimed that an email from Stephen Moore, one of the owners of tether holdings limited, said that a major Chinese counterparty was trying to quote circumvent the banking system by providing fake sales invoices and contracts for each deposit and withdrawal. He wrote that it was too risky to continue with this method, considering his signature was on the fake invoices, and recommended that the counterparty abandoned its attempts to open the account, saying quote, I would not want to argue any of the above in a potential fraud slash money laundering case. In March 17, according to The Wall Street Journal, Wells Fargo stopped processing transaction from several Taiwanese accounts that tether had been using, and in a lawsuit filed against the bank, tether called the move quote, an existential threat to their business, but withdrew the lawsuit shortly thereafter. A few weeks later on a conference call with users, Phil Potter, tethers then chief strategy officer attempted to calm concerns, saying quote, we've had banking hiccups in the past. We've always been able to route around it or deal with it, open up new accounts or what have you. There's been lots of sort of cat and mouse tricks that everyone in the Bitcoin industry has to avail themselves of. The article also claims that another account opened up on behalf of tether in turkey was later used to funnel money to a Hamas linked terror organization. And on top of that, the article also chronicles an attempt to funnel money through Panama using a company called the crypto capital corporation. The company allegedly used a series of shell companies to move around more than $1 billion. In October 2018, around 850 million was seized by authorities in the U.S. and Europe during an investigation into bank fraud and alleged money laundering. The seizure caused ripples through the crypto ecosystem with tether losing its peg and making a loan to bitfinex its sister exchange to shore up tether's balance sheet. But for next claims to this day that it was defrauded by crypto capital corp and is still fighting the seizures.

But anyways, apparently his attorney to the district judge, Lewis Kaplan requesting adjustments to the conditions of SBS bail. It includes establishing allow list of websites he could visit on a new, especially configured laptop that allowable websites are described as not providing a private communication platform and not facilitating access to or transferring crypto, which we all know he will still be doing that. He will just use another device. I mean, who wouldn't? I raised two teenage kids. I get it. I know how these things work, but apparently the websites included are going to be Amazon, Wall Street Journal, New York Times, crypto media like coin desk, the hash. Make sure you guys are watching. Netflix and Spotify and food delivery services DoorDash and Uber eats because when he does go to the big House, he will not have access to those. Jen, since you're our legal person on the channel, let's go ahead. Have you comment on this? I don't really have a legal take on this. I think it's funny that as part of this as parents will have to commit to having monitoring devices on the devices that he has Internet access to. They have to commit to not allowing him to use their devices. It's like having a three year old all over again and I just can't imagine how his parents are coping or what they're going through amongst all of this. I thought it was super funny that he wants access to coin desk. I hope he watches the hash. I hope he hears our takes. I'd love to hear more about that. But we have to remember that Sam was using his devices to contact witnesses in this upcoming trial and his messaging apps were taken away. And so I think it makes sense that he shouldn't have access to the Internet.

"Is a certified financial planner and brings that expertise and that ability to give advice our consumer goods lead spent years at real simple at Airbnb magazine has worked a little bit also on the retail side. At major retailers doing content and has that viewpoint. And then our senior staff writer spent years at wirecutter writing about electronics and brings a lot of expertise there. And then we are fueled by a lot of amazing contributing editors contributing writers who freelance for us. And we look for expertise in those areas as well. And so that's just, you know, helping the reader know, oh, this is trusted. I know who these people are. I can read about their background. I can see that they've been doing this for years. This isn't just someone who's made a specialty and I know how to do a product roundup. That's not what we're about here. It's a journalistic enterprise. And our editors don't see some of the numbers that you and Josh have been talking about. They don't know which credit cards are monetizing at a higher rate. They don't know what a per page avenue average revenue is for something they've written. That's all separate because we just want to make good editorial decisions with no influence from other factors. I wanted to ask too, you had mentioned that a lot of your editorial kind of strategy and looking at which things are trending comes from analyzing SEO, but I'm also curious if you're working at all with The Wall Street Journal and looking at what's trending over there or what stories have been getting a lot of clicks. Is there any kind of crossover when you're looking for topics of coverage or questions about how to manage personal finance? How much do you work with The Wall Street Journal side or the other brands under Dow Jones to inform the content that you're putting out on buy side? I wear a separate team, so we do feel pretty separate from the newsroom, but we're all looking at the same sort of headlines and what's coming down the pike and responding in our own ways the journal is responding in a news driven way of giving people information, we're responding in a way of helping people make a decision that's going to lead to an action and a purchase or another sort of decision there. And so I think it's like the way that we react to higher interest rates to higher gas prices is different, but we're all kind of looking at the same consumer pressures in order in order to do that. So, I mean, the SEO piece is really interesting. We have a great SEO manager. And we're lucky that she has both content and product experience, which when you're building, you know, when you're building a site, that's really useful for us. So we've been able to really maximize that and feel like we can be extremely responsive to what people are actually searching for a day to today. I think you had mentioned this as an example earlier, but the story I saw on the homepage of buy side right now is a gas prices are up. Here are 5 ways to cut your car costs, which to me is a really interesting approach to a story that would be on a commerce site because it seems like it would be such a broad kind of story in terms of like, it's not a traditional roundup, right?

"Kind of share a breakdown of what like an average commission might be on the financial services side or what you've started seeing so far. I know it's early days, but I'm curious how that tends to compare because I imagine something like sports betting, right? Like that category has huge commission rates for publishers like sports sports publishers are getting hundreds of dollars when they refer people to DraftKings, for example. But I'm curious how they tend to compare on the financial services side compared to maybe 5 to 20% commission rates that you see on consumer products, right? Like I'm curious what the kind of averages that you're starting to see. Yeah, well, it's early days, as you pointed out, it's also, I think, more varied in terms of the models. And I think I read your piece about CPC versus cost per acquisition. The different currencies in this space that are evolving. And on the financial services side, it is a combination of cost per acquisition, cost per lead, so there's different models on certain kinds of products. It can be sort of a percentage of loan size and other models. It's a sort of flat fee of I'm just making this up for illustrative purposes. You know, $50 for every new verified credit card lead. And so on average, I think those bounties do end up being greater per CAPiTA than on most consumer products, back to the point that the lifetime value of that customer to a credit card issuer, for example, is greater. So you'll often have a range or a fixed fee on a cost per lead or a cost per new customer acquisition. And those can change over time too. Because as you grow and deliver more volume and more success to a particular issuer as an example, you may be able to negotiate better sort of per CAPiTA rates. And so I think they are on average higher. There is a range and that range can grow over time as you grow as a builder of their business. Got it. Got it. Yeah, that makes sense. I guess, I mean kind of condensing all of this into one question. Do you see financial services as being the kind of breadwinner of the commerce business or do you think that maybe the barrier to entry and to your point kind of getting all of the ducks in a row to become partners with these with these with these companies, I guess, prevents the opportunity for this to be the lion's share of where you're seeing commerce revenue coming in from? Yeah, well, I think as Leslie said, you know, we're going to learn a lot. And we will be responsive to what we learn. But we are committed to this category. Beyond the monetization, I think it's just something that people expect from the journal and that an area where we can offer value, valued, and valuable advice and provide a service. And to your point, if we can succeed in the space, I think that creates a bigger opportunity for us in the long run than if we were to just focus on consumer product categories. And so I think the barrier to entry does keep certain publishers out of this space. But The Wall Street Journal is not certain publishers, where The Wall Street Journal. I would argue we've got as much right as anyone in the world to play in this space. And so we're going to take advantage of that for sure. We're going to take a quick break to hear from our sponsor and we'll be right back. Host red ads are proven

"Thus far. Interesting. I'm curious to hear more about that in the conversation. So you take it away. Thanks, Kayla. Thanks, Tim. Leslie and Josh, thank you so much for joining us on the podcast. How are you? Great. Thanks for having us. Thanks for having us. Yeah, I'm very excited to have you guys on. I have recently been covering a lot in the way of commerce and how that part of media businesses have been changing lately. I feel like there's been a lot of kind of movement. But Dow Jones, Wall Street Journal, just got into commerce with the launch of buy side. So that's perfect timing. But I'm curious, I guess, to ask you guys why now, why now get into commerce why now launch a new site dedicated to it? And what the kind of vision is for by side in terms of having a commerce business as part of the media. I guess package that you have. Sure. Well, I can jump in there. You know, we're new to this particular commerce initiative, but we're not new to helping people make decisions. In fact, that's been the mission of The Wall Street Journal and even the other brands in the portfolio, market watch and barons, really since their inception, to help people make informed decisions about how they spend their time and money. So for us, it's a very natural extension of the brand. And I think we saw an opportunity to expand the application of that mission and in the process expands. Our business opportunity and have the benefit of looking out at the landscape and what a lot of other publishers are doing in the space learning from it and hopefully improving on it. And so I'm also curious, commerce, online shopping, had a big kind of growth period, a couple of years ago at the onset of the pandemic. In terms of launching this product, was there a reason that it was something that came up this year 2022 or had you been thinking about having this in the works for a couple of years? I'm curious about the timing of the launch if it's been a project that's been kind of circulating in the background for a little bit. Yeah, it's something that's been discussed for a number of years. And certainly since our relatively new CEO, I think he's about two years in, took over. It became a priority for him. And so we've been working on it in various ways for over a year now. The first 6 months was very much about researching the space, understanding the mechanics of the business, like I said, looking at what else is out there, good, bad, and otherwise. And then the last 6 months have been about building the site and building up the content for launch, building the team. So it's been a goal for a while and now a reality. And to your point, there was a big surge in sort of affiliate ecommerce during COVID for obvious reasons. I know there's been a slowing of the growth of some publishers in this space, but there's going to be ebbs and flows. I look at it on a longer time horizon. You know, we're in this for the long haul. I think the overall trend towards more shopping online is

"Kaylee, you have the interview this week, and you spoke with Josh stinchcomb, who is the chief revenue officer of Dow Jones, as well as Leslie asle, who is the head of content for The Wall Street Journal's new commerce brand by side. So why is The Wall Street Journal and Dow Jones getting into the commerce game now? Right. So that was the first question I asked, I believe. But yeah, it's an interesting time to come into the commerce space. I mean, as I've been covering the past couple of weeks, there's been some, I guess, new approaches to commerce that publishers have been taking given changes to consumer behavior, a looming recession, things that are kind of impacting the success of commerce businesses to a degree. So it's interesting time to kind of come into this space now after two years of commerce really being strong performers at the start of the pandemic. And I asked, you know, kind of why this is something that they're doing now versus earlier, quite frankly. And I think what's interesting about starting now is the approach that The Wall Street Journal is taking with their commerce brand by side is it's less about just recommending products and more so recommending products through a financial and personal finance lens, which is, I think, kind of an interesting approach that they're doing and a point where people might be looking at how to best invest their money or which products get the most bang for their buck. It seems kind of like a good time for them to be coming into this space. Josh did say that this has been something that they've been thinking about for a number of months, if not years. So it's an area that they've been interested in, but I think they wanted to take a very specific approach. And right now, it just kind of worked out that their approach kind of fits the times a little bit. With just people being very conscious about their money. Right. And it also makes sense since a lot of the publications we've seen jump into commerce have been more consumer oriented publications whereas a place like The Wall Street Journal.

"Yeah i mean some of my favorite books. That i've read i. I read bad blood by john. Kerry who and i also Read you know the they did a great book called billion dollar whale. You know on the the scandal involving the malaysian sovereign wealth fund. I mean they've done great investigative stuff in they have great on investigative reporters But they're not unleashing that level of aggressiveness on in washington as much. I think in any time you get to a hot button. Issue like like religion or social media or anything that's been sort of put at the top of the national agenda by you know during the trump years Just a lot of a lot of eyes on it and a you know an army of editors Which no reporter really likes Yeah i don't know. I mean it's It was it was. It was really interesting to read. I mean i saw a lot of friends. There have a lot of fondness for the place But i do think that you know. The country became so focused that obsessed with politics and it was that just ended up being the thing that they couldn't quite they couldn't quite figure out And now maybe that were less focused on that del. It'll you know they're they're kinda sweet. Spot will swing back into something else. As as a former newspaper reporter myself. And i did cover congress in the nineties and And then worked at the boston globe. A bit In work on a big investigative project there you know reporters. They just love to do accountability journalism and break news. And it seems like there's the opportunity to do that at the journal Like you pointed out this facebook story. You know john kerry who and this no story but it's a lot harder to do in washington. I just heard that again and again in washington in nationally. it's The the accountability journalism which is so satisfying. And which people really want to do and which you know. The trump era the early trump area because he was pushing so many norms was crying out for people just fell continuously stymied in their ability to do that. By because of the paranoia of and the the editor heavy interventions On any story that sorta tied into the the the the seething controversies on on a national scale and people just found that really frustrating and demoralizing in they also founded kind of embarrassing particularly under jerry baker. But i think that's continued a little bit There there was just less freedom to maneuver and and do the kind of accountability journalism that That the trump administration was crying out for for a long time mean.

"That wasn't the story that anybody was talking about. Everybody was talking about Sort of this outrage. At the way the protesters were cleared. And so i. I've sort of put what's going on at the journal in this. Bigger frame of like how political reporters are rethinking their their coverage How do you how do you place it. And what do you think about that. Bigger question of like the need to rethink how recover politics. I mean one of the things that was interesting about the journal. Particularly under jerry. Baker is that He didn't think that it was the role of the newspaper to call out trump for quote unquote lying. You know people are having that debate and he took the sort of controversial opinion which In a position which he articulated on television. I think in which pissed off some of his staff that you couldn't actually maybe label. What trump was saying ally because that would describe a motivation to statements so You know they seem to be doubling down on this quote unquote balance in applying their standards team And just a lot of scrutiny to anything that could be a you know questions As an questioned by it seems like trump supporters as As bias you know Which a lot of reporters felt made them overly cautious in watered down. You know sort of the their take on reality you know so in that sense You know it. It has led to some interesting discussions in the journal. I guess But there's so many there's there's so many editors in there so many people in standards there's so many people looking at potentially controversial copy that the edges gets sanded down and there's a lot less freedom i guess for potentially controversial stories for reporters to kind of express their own impression of things And and i heard a lot of complaints. You know people saying that mad murray was Personally line editing. Their copy particularly out of i guess Out of washington but also a lot of reporters complained that you know it was just hard to get potentially controversial stories into the paper. They eventually got them in but But sometimes they had to jump through a lot of hoops or sometimes those stories were watered down. Did you run or you a journal reader before you started doing this story. Yeah i was reading it. I i did subscribe Would it have you read these facebook stories. Yeah those are great. Yeah i mean. I've found that Actually i found that at first. You know when i was talking to people outside of washington in the national staff Any people who are covering business They love it there and it ended. You know there's great journalists there. There's great editing I think You know when i was younger it used to be a writer's paper right. You went there to learn. You could do these in-depth things and you can necessarily do that on a daily basis as much but these investigations are still You know pulitzer worthy done in the love working there.

"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..

"Hand it can be kinda good right Because some of the silliness doesn't doesn't happen there but But there's also like your comment about the star system is definitely true. It's very much an editor driven place. i mean when i was there I mean you know it was it would have been. I just can't imagine You know reporters talking to an outside. Doing outside reported doing a piece on. It was a very controlling place so a lot of what you write is about. How the journal covered trump. And the kind of i think you the sanding of the edges i think is one term that you use like talk a little bit about that. Yeah well i just. I got the sense. I mean you can read jerry. Baker who jerry baker was You know the editor in chief. Before or the managing editor of the top editor prior to mount murray. And you can read his columns now. And i mean i read. He wrote a column saying that Comparing the the pulitzer prizes to soviet medal of freedom in saying that predicting that people would win it next year for writing White privilege on a cocktail napkin. You know he's he's he's a a witty guy right but he has this total discontent for the mainstream media is dominated by a against the new york times. And so i think also just gonna say one of the reasons. People were reluctant to be seen talking to me is because they don't want to be i guess labeled you know as an upstart left-winger But on that very much seem to seems to have pervaded The political coverage to a certain extent And you know and it just seemed like there's just a lot of concern Amongst some of the political and national reporters as or a lot of sort of conflict About whether they'll be labeled kind of woke and left wing and biased in the same way that a lot of people see the new york times Certainly the way. I guess jerry baker did and some of his deputies and buttery on that. Was it your impression that the standards in terms of Both sides and being seen as completely neutral completely balanced or those standards applied unusually to trump or was that the whole. That's the whole approach of the paper in general..

"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..

Most of whom are really hard. Working decent business people just trying to earn a living honestly selling goods to people but the seller rating has become so all important as people look at a product and see how many stars it has without digging deeper. That sellers are doing everything they can to manipulate the ratings to the point that they break amazon rules and start harassing you at your email address. I being really nice offering money. Maybe even when you turn them down raising the money they'll offer you to pull down a negative review or to write a positive review. Most often they start offering serious money. According to the wall street journal investigation. When you've written a negative review and then if you still won't pull down the negative review they may start being more and more aggressive in emails. They send to you. Amazon's rules supposedly prevent sellers from doing this and unfortunately in the wall street journal investigation over and over again amazon was found to ignore complaints by its customers when they would complain to amazon about being harassed by sellers. This is an area amazon. Definitely needs to work on what their relationship is. An responsibility is for hosting all these third party sellers. The other aspect involves the sale of unsafe goods on amazon. Where amazon has alleged in one court case after another. Not our problem. We're not responsible. Somebody dies make us hurt tough. They weren't buying from us. They were buying from. Who knows who. Which amazon does a very poor job showing on their website so amazon. Now under extreme pressure now says that they are going to pay damages through a process when somebody has been harmed by goods being sold.

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. Open your hands. And i don't want to be one of those seven percent of men who think they can be a elephants by the bowling fight really hard time finding one because we very rarely cmos because pretty fast and then mostly underground and she in nineteen sixty seven. Those peter stafford who won the wildlife cameraman of the year prize took a photo of a mall. And it's young in a burrow and for fourteen years of the only photo we have of mls in their bar with their young people. It's been in the way and the reason they got changed. 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. I'm hoping that my bottle plus really good. Yeah i prefer the original name sort of circa four hundred and fifty to one thousand one hundred ad and you're very. Yeah i would appreciate it. If for the rest of the segment we could refer to them by their original name. Which was very nice. The idea. Andy is you save holding a mole in your hand because they used to be called ones. Oh you had a wall. Yeah w. w. a. n. d. and a one eventually turned into a want so they became a want and the mole hills used to be called a one tump dollars back in the today you would be making a mountain out of a wanted all right but their name before they were cool at slowdowns. 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. Traffic line They are fast fast. They look insane. By the way. If you've never seen a star nosed mole give it a google. It's the most alien looking creature it's a sort of. It's like it's halfway through eating an octopus and it's just stopped with the legs hanging out. That's what's on. Its face the rest of. It's very mole like and then. Suddenly boom on the face magical. Actually those that organ on the front of the faces. Twelve more sensitive than a human clitoris. Wow i don't know what to say about this a lot. Easier to find a so good. Oh so mall catching. I'm sure you guys have been reading about the massive british mole cash community. Okay now. I don't like a three british bodies so stereotypically british devoted catching balls. There's an association of british mall catches. There's the british mole catchers register and there's the guild of british mold catches split.

"street journal" Discussed on AM 970 The Answer

"I'm a staunch supporter of Joe Biden and voted for him to save this country. Rights. Betsy LeRoi, She is the proprietor of Pizza by Elizabeth's just outside of Wilmington, Delaware. San supporter, Joe Biden voted for him to save this country. Problem is his policies won't allow her to save her business. This president is team may understand Delaware politics, but I'm not sure they understand the difficulties of Delaware restaurants. How else to explain his proposed his proposal to raise the minimum wage for our servers and bartenders from $2.23 an hour to $15 an hour, an increase of more than 400%, which would be a death knell for our industry. And she writing in The Wall Street Journal, is urging Joe Biden to be something he's not. Leader. Moderate. Maybe this is a cautionary tale, and I don't mean to pile on, but I mean to some extent. Better. LeRoi. Maybe she is a cautionary tale for people who Make political decisions based on Personality rather than on policy. Voted from to save this country, but, uh I guess my business gonna have to be sacrificed. I suppose she wasn't ready for that. I don't know how she could have missed it. Don't know how she could have missed that about administration would be Bolshevik. Bernie staffers implementing Obama policies as we're seeing play out in real time. I should say Obama staffers, I gotta reverse Obama staffers. Implementing Bolshevik Bernie policies as we're seeing play out real time. How was that unclear? You think they care that the CBO projects of $15 minimum wage mandate would cost 1.4 million jobs? You're gonna have to spill a little blood to create heaven on Earth. As all authoritarians say. Oh, and by the way, this sum Uh, Job loss that has occurred and continues to Remember how 2000 and 2000 and the great recession was a man session. This is the opposite. Carol Markowitz had a good piece in your post talking about this where the feminist The National Women's Center noted that the December jobs numbers 140,000 jobs lost. It was 156,000 jobs. That women lost while men actually gained 16,000 jobs in November. Even rights. Marco, it's even more female workers may have felt forced to voluntarily quote unquote give up their jobs to be home looking after kids exiled from their school buildings at the behest of the powerful teachers unions. Oh, and as CNN reports. The job losses hit black and Hispanic women disproportionately. Feminists are supposed to care about minorities along with women, aren't they? Mm confusing times on DA. Among those confused is Jen Psaki, the White House press secretary. She had this exchange with Fox News is Peter Doocy. Continued exchange over the cancelation, the keystone pipeline with other pipelines in the crosshairs and those 11,000 jobs that have reportedly been lost. Those green jobs that are coding jobs that those people are going to have access to one to those come online, by administration's gonna let the thousands of fossil fuel industry workers whether it's pipeline workers or construction workers. Who are either out of work or will soon be out of work, because well by E. O when it is and where it is that they can go for their green job, And that is something the administration has promised. There is now a gap. So I'm just curious when that happens when those people from the count on that well, it's certainly welcome, you tow present your data of all the thousands and thousands of people who won't be getting a green job. Maybe next time you're here you can present that would be getting green jobs, So I'm just asking When that happens, Richard trumped up who is a friend, Longtime friend of Joe Biden says. About that day one. He stone Theo, he says. I wish he president has cared that were carefully with the things that he did second by saying. Here's where we are creating the jobs. So there's a partial evidence from Richard Trunk to. Well, you didn't include all of his interview you would you like to include the rest? So how about this, But the Laborers International Union of North America, said the Keystone decision will cost 1000 existing union jobs and 10,000 projected construction jobs well what Mr Trump. Lucca, also indicated in the same interview was that President Biden has proposed a climate plan with transformative investments and infrastructure. And laid out a plan that will not only create millions of good union jobs but also help tackle the climate crisis. And, as the president has indicated, when he gave his prime time address to talk about the American rescue plan. He talked about his plans to also put forward a jobs plan in the weeks or months following and he has every plan to do exactly that. Yes. So what's the big deal? You lost your job yesterday? President Biden is going to get around to proposing a jobs plan in the weeks or months to come. You know, again, there's gonna be a little blood spilled when you're creating heaven on Earth, So just chill out, man. She's also an idiot. What does that mean present? My evidence about the jobs are not going to get. I'm asking you when they're going to get jobs. It's just idiotic. By the way it feels FL CEO President Richard Trump goes, sat down with some fungible reporter for Axios and was asked about this. Here's Trump con the Keystone Pipeline. Cancelation. Can you explain why The president was right. Well. I wish you hadn't done that on the first day because The laborers international was right. It did and will cost us jobs in the process. If I wish he had pared that more carefully with the thing that he did second by saying, Here's where we're creating jobs, we could do mine reclamation. We can fix leaks, and we can fix seeps and create hundreds of thousands of jobs and doing all of that stuff. You think bite and realizes that that was.

"The Wall Street Journal editorial page. Most importantly, the right has the Supreme Court, which might prove to be the one reliable counterbalance and the majority of Howard the state level. But here's the key point. Conservatives long ago lost so many key institutions that defined national conversation including culture, media and higher education. Now President Trump has cost Republicans those tools of political power and policy making. The party will have to rebuild around new people and ideas. Well, that's a change from what access originally argued originally and said, We're now going to rethink things like free speech, freedom of association in this country. That's what the left really would like. Now that they have all of the tools at their disposal. They're going to rethink free speech. They're going to rethink free association and the way they're going to do that is by proclaiming loudly and clearly once and for all that if you are on the right, you are in league with the people who stormed the capital. If you were a supporter of Trump or you if you didn't support Trump, if you're just a religious conservative, if you're somebody who held your nose and voted for Trump, because you looked at the left and left was getting so insane that they were openly backing black lives, matters, rioting and back in critical race theory. Trying to ram down and it is extraordinary level of intolerance on right wingers across the country and people were middle of the road and moderate liberals across the country If you looked at that, and you said, You know what? I'm not into that Now the rule is that you were in favor of what happened to the capital last week. Which is crazy and gross and the people who are saying this sort of stuff are are doing something deeply politically malevolent. If you're lumping in with the hundreds of people who should go to jail for a very long time. We did what they did last week for lumping in with those people. The 75 million Americans voted for Trump and then Bubbly. Another 100 Million Americans who disagree with left on a wide variety of issues ranging from other Children should be allowed to change their sex toe. Whether Americans should be divided along the basis of race and then special government benefits given to them. If you're lumping all those people together, and you were those people. And you know that That's the problem. You are part of the problem. Not the only problem but definitely the biggest problem for the future of the country. Because let's be real about what happened last week. What happened last week was an act of evil and it was unsuccessful. Republican Senate came back into session and then voted for the certification of the election. Mitch McConnell lead the way. Vice president Pence. Trump's own vice president presided over that it was a failure. It was a failure from beginning to end doesn't mean it wasn't evil. It doesn't mean it wasn't terrible. It does mean that the system was resilient, resilient enough, and within a couple of hours everybody was re gathering. On the floor of the same building that had been invaded. And was voting in favor of the system. Danger to the system right now is not the exogenous danger of writers taking over the capital. The danger to the system right now is the complete lack of trust the breakdown in basic cultures of rights. Do we talk on the show a lot? How culture is upstream of politics? We talked on the show a lot about how a culture matters more than the politics that that your culture shapes you the waters in which you swim right this stuff. Do you watch the church? You go to your neighbor's that that really shaped who you are as a person, And then that is manifest in politics. Politics does not change culture nearly as much. Here's the thing when it comes to your rights When it comes to liberty, a culture of liberty, a culture of freedom is upstream. Of the politics of freedom. Okay, there a lot of people today who are saying Well, you know what? You're complaining a lot. But these are all private corporations doing what they do. We believe they're allowed to do what they did. That's true. Legally, Many of these companies are allowed to do what they can fire you for being a conservative. They can They're allowed to not Do not allow you to use your credit card to pay for a subscription over daily wire. They can But a culture of rights, which means a people who prize the ability of people to do things they don't agree with, because they believe in the underlying writes, that has to undergird Any legal system of rights because sooner or later and usually sooner Culture that opposes the rights of others turns into a legal structure that opposes the rights of others. It bleeds over incredibly quickly. If you think the First Amendment's gonna protect you if the entire culture has decided the first Amendment no longer matters wrong, you are. Can we get two more of this in a second? Why This has become such an issue First, if you thought the lead up to 2016 was nuts, you ain't seen nothing yet. The best.
