And this was a guy who we ended up liking in spite of and that's a very big in spite of in spite of his involvement with the mob, I think you must ask her, but I think my course of Robin as a woman liked him as a person in spite of his pretty savage treatment of many of the women that he knew and the women that we interviewed and we were lucky enough to talk to now that he's gone. He's been gone almost exactly 7 years to talk to a number of the women that he knew for significant periods of his life.

The Tight Race for Second in the Boston Mayoral Race
"Elections are about. Who's going to win. I know that seems obvious. But it is worth noting because we have a really interesting situation unfolding with the preliminary election for boston mayor according to two polls over the last few days it looks like this may actually be a race for second. So let's try and make sense of those polls ahead of thursday's debate which radio boston and wb. You are are co hosting with. W c the boston globe and the mccormick graduate school of policy and global studies at umass boston here to help us do that. Steve casella president of the mass inc polling group. Steve is a friend of the show and massinc polling conducted one of the polls with policy for progress new democracy coalition housing forward massachusetts and education reform now advocacy steve.

Poll released today both have city council member. Michelle woo polling. At around thirty percent they also have this cluster of acting miracle janey an council members and ib george andrea campbell. Really tight together for second so the first question does it mean that wu has her place in this preliminary election solidly in hand. Well i think we did. Nothing's certain you know nothing solid until everything's over you know that's one thing i mean. Just a fact about municipal elections is that They can change much more quickly than say a partisan election. you know. there's no republican. There's no democrat on the ballot. There's no kind of mental shortcut. People can take to where there's only one candidate that's anywhere near my as a voter my ideological space. So i'm definitely going to choose this one. You know in municipal elections. There might be three or four candidates that you're still choosing between so you know certainly you would like to be michelle Michelle lewis campaign given the numbers that that are the way they are. But i i certainly wouldn't say you know. There's no way that anything else can happen

Eldridge Gerry and the shape of voting districts kind of looked like a salamander Boston globe picked it up ran with became the gerrymander. And that's jerry me today.

Come also from people's names so our first one which i find really exciting well. I don't know if i told you this. I know i did on our previous show. But i don't know about the show but i went to ireland once on my honeymoon and scotland early. Yeah but this. This actually comes to us from irish irish. An irish word. The irish invented boycotting because of the english thousand percents. Yeah okay this all started in eighteen. Eighty when charles stewart parnell whom i've never heard of but was a pretty popular. Irish member of parliament named parliament after sir parlor apart so he decided that the english government had failed them in their time of need and they must seize control of their own destiny. This was not long after the potato famine. When you know. The brits really did nothing when they knew there was a problem and actively chose to ignore it while one third of the irish population starved to death. And then they that whole came in. Yeah we're assholes. So arnelle was the son of a protestant landowner who organized the rural masses into agitation against the ruling landlord class so the brits mostly the landlords owned everything. They were jacking up rent. They're throwing people out on the streets. Just terrible terrible people so kind of started. This movement called the three apps he wants fixity of tenure a freedom to sell and fair rent so these are all just people won't be affordable human rights. The same problem we're facing today.

"Mary frank johnson. Welcome to technician. It's great to speak with you. Thanks so much. Peter i always enjoy talking with you. I do as well so please on the record at this point. I'm i'm as somebody who is a luminary ao space. You do not need a big introduction with my audience. I don't imagine but you are perhaps best known. As former editor in chief of cio magazine the the moderator of the cio leadership live broadcast which is just a phenomenal phenomenal series of interviews with with leaders in the tech space x os with a healthy dose of course of chief information officers as the name suggests and a prolific writer. Somebody who's wisdom. I know my team. And i have have gained mightily from across the years as well so i'm so pleased to to have this more formal conversation after many many informal ones with you okay. Well thanks very much peter. I we've got a lot of great stuff to talk about indeed indeed wipe. We begin at the beginning at least as relevant to the cio space. You're not somebody who grew up with immersed in technology You are somebody who The written word came the more easily to the dentist too many others. Perhaps and and you were focused on journalism. I wonder what was what was the genesis of your time In focusing your skills on the cio. Space okay thanks. Exxon question and i love telling the story because i think that it reflects so much of how many of the it leaders cio's that we both know today ended up in the positions that you know they were music majors or they majored in english literature and history and then they got really interested in data side of things for me. I had started out. I spent ten years at daily newspapers. In florida and ohio in washington state and i reported on everything from city and county commission beats to k twelve education to police even state politics when i was two bureau chief for gannett news service out in columbus ohio and then we were moving to the boston area in nineteen eighty nine. My husband was an atmospheric scientist and he was taking a job in cambridge and so naturally i went reached out to the boston globe and to the boston herald and the it was. Nobody was hiring. So i was. We were arriving in the boston area. And i had heard about a very vibrant technology publishing world here and so i had examined it somewhat and made some phone calls A lot of this was so far before the days of regular emails. And you know we weren't living on our phones. Then so i was just applying my reporter skills to it. And i ended up getting a copy of computerworld mailed to me and sat there. I remember sitting there in my living room in ohio looking through it and feeling somewhat reassured that i could understand about what have the stories were about And then on the drive from ohio to massachusetts. I basically grill my husband One side down the other about the computer industry. Because i was coming into it only knowing that ibm made typewriters and the rest of it was kind of a big mystery. But i had been using some of the very early unix. That was vi editor on unix. That you could use to do work on. He had some sun workstations and very early versions of sun and unix workstations at our house and so i used that a little bit. And i remember when i was in my interview for the computer job with The executive and executive editor in the editor chiefs of computerworld. I think they were very impressed. That i was referring to things like vi editor in youth so but computerworld at always hired. They hired reporters who could learn the beat. And i think that's pretty much the way almost everybody on the tech journalism side got into it. They were journalists bite training. Then they do. They dove into their beats. Because one of the things we discovered trying to hire people over the years if you try to higher in a technical person and hand the technology beat they wouldn't know the story angle with fell on them so it was really important if you were genuinely out there reporting And then i found enjoyed it. I just enjoyed it so much and by the time i was a couple years into my job at computer world when the boston globe was to interview people and hire all. But i wouldn't left for anything at that point it just it was such a. I just enjoyed the way. The story kept changing and advancing and moving forward.
Interview with Jessica Lessin
"Jessica thank you for joining me and welcome to skin from the couch. Thanks for having me carly. I love listening to this podcast. So i'm thrilled to be here. I was saying just as you got kinda miked up. Its feels very weird to be on the other side of interviewing journalists like you but we're going to jump into it which is first question. I'm a standard question. Skim your resume. I wanted to be a reporter For as long as i can remember and had a series of internships starting in high school at my local newspaper where i wrote about why there were so many nail salons and how they could all stay in business so didn't really have a sense of supply and demand back then but was interested in in poking my nose around i then interned at the associated press the boston globe and the wall street journal and clung to that internship so that they would not let me leave the building and convince them to hire me so i worked as a tech reporter at the journal for eight years covering everything from the rise of online video to apple to google yahoo the rise of the internet. If you will that be took me out to san francisco and then after eight years at the journal i loved covering the tech industry and it seemed to me. That tac was disrupting news in very very fundamental ways most significantly. It was getting publishers obsessed with online advertising and traffic in a way that i felt was really lowering. The quality of news content and so i launched the information as a subscription business to swing back to quality over quantity and i guess seven years in We have one of the largest newsrooms of tech reporters around the world in her breaking major stories every day. We're going to dig into so much of that. But i'm curious. What would people be surprised to learn about you. I think probably many many things. But probably that i never ever ever thought i was going to start a company i actually remember grousing to my husband. You know maybe a decade ago. Why is everyone leaving. Big company jobs to start a company in the world be better if they were adding their talents and energies sort of into the traditional system. So i i. I think even wrote a story at the journal about like you know. There are too many entrepreneurs or something to that vein but you know lo and behold eventually you catch the edge and i think the world is just made starting a company so i was gonna say appealing but as you know carly times is quite tough Be anything appealing but it just felt like there was a huge opportunity and i went for it but it was quite a swing from sort of being very down on entrepreneurship to becoming one. You mentioned in your skin of your bio that you began your journalism career at a young age and went onto the crimson while. You're harvard We're able to turn internship into a job at the journal. I think that the one of the most popular questions that we get asked. How do i turn my internship into the full-time. What is your advice on how to do that. Don't leave the buildings that was really my advice and so i kind of lucked out. Because i was working on this big project. It was on the salary data that the government was putting out it a once in every year report about what was having to wages across a huge number of jobs and i had planned a really big feature with my editor on this and they push back the release date and so i said i i got it right this story you know you don't wanna miss this big feature in the journal you had an approval process for big features in the had been approved and all of that and so you know my internship was supposed to be up august whatever. The data was coming out first week in september and i just sort of made the case to literally extend my security badge access

"the boston globe" Discussed on WBZ NewsRadio 1030
"The editorial page editor of The Boston Globe and the globe reaches how many homes with written copy heart you know paper additions every day I mean if you know where in the two hundred thousand to INR fifty thousand range with prince and increasingly were loose with digital were about that though there's some overlap there I can give you the exact numbers I'd probably have to consult with my colleagues I have to tell you you've done such a noble job of trying to pronounce my very difficult last name but I do have to tell you it bank of charm and okay thank you I'm very sorry he had a great job I was they could trauma okay much much better and and sounds better and thank you and I apologize for that when your last name is spelled R. EA believe me I've always tried his names as well as possible they could promise very nice so let's talk a little bit it is a high profile editorial Tom cotton every read the editorial tonight I can't find anything in that editorial that would trouble me it seemed to me to be a fairly representative of point of view of you that maybe we might disagree with and the times has caught a lot of flak over it ended his reinforced in the minds of a lot of conservatives and against Republicans the times doesn't want to hear the other point of view I don't expect you to defend the times I don't expect you to critique the Tom cotton editorial if you can if you can but it just seems it just seems to me that we're in such a hopelessly divided nation right now this chasm between each side is just getting bigger every day and I don't know that the times preventing an article an editorial from Tom from senator Tom cotton which book they did publish on their website as I understand it but did not published in the print version I don't know how that helps bring us together what's the reason a lot of really interesting point here one of which I think it's just so important to emphasize that the contact for this is that we are in an extremely polarized political climate and we because of the way that the business models are evolving or not involving for news media and because of the way in which our technology platforms or social media platform can reinforce our reading just sort of things we already believe that N. or D. more want to seek out all of that happened by algorithm bye bye very deliberate sort of coatings from from these search engines and social media platforms like Facebook because of that we're all kind of subject to being in our own echo chambers right now and that polarization is also had a fact on her knees media companies decision themselves in order to be profitable or at least solvents and summer still striving to do that and not quite making it and it came back two years ago I would say like fifteen years ago there was a great piece in the Harvard Business Review about the news industry and many personality to a beach where you if you are the only ice cream stand on the beach you're probably situate yourself in the middle of that beach and you'll have all the flavors that appeal to people whether they're from one side of the beach or the other so forgive the metaphor is a little in perfect sh but our beach gets more crowded if there end up being more ice cream stand so you're past the Walter Cronkite days where they were just sort of one or two veritable news sources that people went to church it can make more sense from a business point of view to cost yourself on one end of the beach where everyone likes mint chocolate chip and vanilla and then on the other side of the beach if everyone there like strawberry and rocky road you can answer that and there's something to it I thought it was a very pression P. that they published back then because we've only seen it happen more and more aware news organizations position themselves to sort of serve ideological left and right because capturing that is almost more it's it's it's a better and more reliable audience in trying to position yourself in the middle it's pretty disappointing everyone so it's a sort of more British style of opinion journalism where you know and that actually takes it a step further where organizations would be transparent about their politics and then that would be what they publish and not think outside of that so I don't think that that's necessarily a healthy direction correct you go in in in the market the thing is very unhealthy direction because yeah and I think so I think the challenges how do you in a world where people casted whole publication with a certain you know a certain shade they'll decide this is the liberal you should because they see something there one day oracle decided conservative because they see something another day that they disagree with because they're liberal you get people to recognize that there are judgments going on on the opinion page and not to say that were perfect at this but I think there is an account in most mainstream newspaper or former newspapers in this country to help the diversity of points with you but I think it's not possible and not responsible and ethical weights you Brandon opinion section in this day and age is to offer opinion just because they happen to be held by a lot of people I think there has to be a higher journalistic standards and journalistic value than simply the fact that a lot of people think it so you know if they were the nineteen sixties and Pol Pot wanted to publish an op ed calling for the commemoration the genocide against the Cambodian people in my op ed pages I would say no to that I would say you know what that's a dangerous point of view it turned out to be very important politically because it's about to happen but the better way to have that presented in the journalistic platform is not true not bad where I give Pol Pot the megaphone and I say go ahead talk about what you want to do it's rather to have it either at the new story or the Q. NA or maybe even as an op topic in our current configuration we're at that point if you can be interrogated there can be a push back against Aronian detailed material that might be used to justify those arguments so I think what I'm trying to say using a very extreme example is that you can be a marketplace for ideas and that indeed it is I think a good standard opinion pages but you have to think about what the flag star in the tent every tent has flaps you're not going to put a KKK leaders manifesto in your pages they're going to be harder calls the caught not that is a harder call it happened under pressure but he did have sexual harassment it repeated you know aronie us accusations from our own president so unfortunately you know the sender was sort of just making something that that had come out of the bully pulpit of the White House which is why this accusation around and T. five starting violence at the protest which just been proven to be baseless so I think my own judgment I'm at risk yes we disagree on that but but I'll let that go well yeah I mean we can come back to it but I mean there is there is an organization called in there is an organization called antifa loosely it is it is not listed with the chamber of commerce but they have done tremendous violence in various cities and also on college campuses at UC Berkeley they they have protested against speak speaks speakers they where the guy fox fox masks I'm you know again they're not listed with the chamber of commerce but yeah I think unfortunately it isn't just as there an organization which I'm just becoming aware of boogaloo exit right okay all right I don't dispute that they exist what I take issue with in the op ed is that the senator with thirteen that these groups were responsible for violence across the country at the protests happening across the country and that extortion has not been instantiated by the crack hi N. as I understand it numerous journalistic institutions have looked into that I don't dispute that there may be groups identified during some some negative things around the country I guess I just wouldn't publish the point of view that argued that that was what was happening at the protest unless I have proof of that well again I I think that's a that is the point which could be debated it just seems to me that Tom cotton you know doesn't represent let us say a an insignificant group of of people if there is an argument and I think most people did not know it.

"Very brave people headline in The Boston Globe why have fourteen thousand people volunteered to be infected with corona virus they want to take part in a human challenge trial and ethically controversial vaccine test that infects people with the virus that doesn't yet have a cure quotes a doctor from Rutgers Dr near on all director of the center for population level bio ethics at Rutgers who says it's not every day we get a healthy individual and exposure to a pathogen the very same thing doctors are trying to protect people from but it becomes increasingly clear that the only sustainable exit from the current health and societal crisis is a vaccine and there are ways to conduct such a trial that are perfectly ethical so the ethical debate is really needs to be debated but we acknowledge the fourteen thousand very brave people who have apparently signed up to be willing to do so if they go through with you man challenge vaccine trials that involve infecting them with the coronavirus the latest economic number just out this morning is that retail sales declined by more than sixteen percent last month so all the ordering for delivery is not making up for all the shopping and eating out that we're not doing so without and with thirty six million new jobless claims since March the house of representatives under speaker Nancy Pelosi is passing a three trillion dollar next phase corona virus relief bill today they call it the health and economic recovery I'm the bus emergency solution stack which is a way of gerrymandering the English language to get to the acronym the heroes act health and economic recovery on the bus emergency solutions heroes for the speaker it includes three pillars the three pillars honor our heroes by supporting our state local entities so that they don't lose their jobs the city's heroes don't lose their jobs open up government by testing tracing of treatment etcetera and the third is putting money in the pockets of the American people all of that time to end centric to the corona virus so the bill has funding for state and local governments that the hard hit states say they so desperately need to keep schools and first responders funded hazard pay for those front line first responders specially healthcare workers plus forgiveness of student debt is in this bill help with ranch for renters is in this bill extension of the emergency unemployment benefits to six months and more Republicans and some moderate Democrats like Joe Manchin of West Virginia argue it's too much debt here's center Manson said quote that's a big number three trillion is a big number on top of about three we already spent and we were gonna be over a trillion dollars in debt when things were good before the pandemic so now you're looking at seven plus that's more than what my children and grandchildren can probably true said senator Manchin and he said this wreck I'm talking about the banks and bell all the and the tax cuts for the corporations they don't hesitate on that there's no fiscal responsibility there at the bottom line is is that everyone's guilty where everyone's thrown caution to the wind so the bills passing today in the democratic majority house but debate is only beginning in the Republican majority Senate the fact that the unemployment has disproportionately struck women people of color and people with jobs paying under forty thousand dollars a year and that's according to stats from the fed exacerbates both inequality in this country and the political divide because of which party represents true but let's pull out to a wider lands Hey she and Bernie Sanders say there's a thing called monetary modern monetary policy that says that doesn't really matter in an economy like ours at this time we'll talk about that in Europe he's doing things differently than in the United States they're getting traumatized by the virus to but in Europe the unemployment rates tend to be considerably less their relief systems tend to be considerably different from ours more robust but actually much simpler so maybe we can learn something let's take a look with me for this is Dominic rush business editor for the guardian U. S. yes an article exploring the trans Atlantic differences right now thanks so much for coming on Dominic welcome to WNYC hi Brian great to be here let's begin with the contrast between the US and Germany in particular while our official unemployment rate has spiked to fifteen percent Germany also hit by the virus has kept it down to an amazingly low three point nine percent according to your article and you give us a German vocabulary word to get it the difference would you like to say it out loud yeah cuts all bite which literally means short work and it's something that Germany tried after the last recession basically he says scheme where the government pays companies to keep people on their payrolls I'm done they don't pay the entire amount but do you get assigned a large percentage of what you need he maintained a relationship between the employee and the employee then the idea is that when business picks up again the company will take you back so you need to be you're not out of work for a long time which can be obviously terrible for people because IT skills except truck the company gets that employees back and hopefully get Connie found bounces back and you call people can work again so does this mean that scheme seen as being one of the reasons why Germany recovered so quickly from the last recession and it's kind of the idea is now spread across Europe huh so how are the government subsidies in Germany to keep people on the payrolls that you're just describing different from the paycheck protection act that Congress passed which is specifically loans to small businesses that can be forgiven if they use them to keep people on the payroll well I missed the P. P. P. mention this kind of court decisions shadow of codes all bites over it but it's not the in general the pilots in the U. S. of being no large businesses a large businesses we seem like a lot of problems with PPP especially smaller companies who said they couldn't get loans except truck so it doesn't seem to work tears not being contest directly targeted to be screened European schemes are saving in the U. K. the ones who is called the coronavirus attention screen it's got seven and a half million people wrong about that which is just an extraordinary number extraordinary number so the money is being directly involved to give to companies west PPPS part of obviously the cash act which is a much broader package of stimulus that is I'm not going to live with him all over the place with lots of different schemes there are some similarities but it's not it's not not quite as directly targeted in your article notes that the UK has a version of this and its unemployment rate while higher than before and higher than Germany's is still in single digits around nine percent well we're up to fifteen and it's really more than that but officially it's fifteen percent can you describe anything about the UK version yes Sir the UK version again it's very similar to the German scheme it's costing about fourteen twelve billion pounds a month which is about fourteen fourteen fifteen billion dollars in mom's arms for seven dollars million people on it it pays eighty percent of wages up to a cap of two thousand five hundred pounds a month that's about three thousand dollars and it's been extended to October now it's been nice suit it's been really popular when I know people who still lives in the U. K. and that is kind of like a lead in there this strange long summer holiday we call do anything else I think it's really helped people feel a bit more settled in Munich the idea that they might go back to that the jobs they had before hopefully when things open up again I think it's quite reassuring but obviously there philosophically big problems with this because the longer this goes all the more risk because companies are on the coast we don't really know what's going to happen with corona virus I mean are we going to find a solution to it hopefully you just mentioned a retail sales with you all if you'll Macy's in the U. K. in your first alert your work as well are you really going to want to move back if we fundamentally change the way we shop now and we don't really want to go to big stores in Miller I mean can you imagine what units sales or something not sure if the bar system around is not going to be people tuning tool pasta sales in January all the no not in the same way certainly and show a downside of the European system you're saying is that it keeps people maybe two tethered to their current employees when maybe they should be going out and seeking retraining yeah I mean I mean I think at the moment we're just in such crisis but this seems like a good solution for our city seems to be working to keep the numbers down but maybe that maybe those numbers will it just all depends on what we want whether we get a alley it's in for or sh or a vaccine something everything that that's but everything could change without but if we don't stand maybe we're setting up more problems down the line and you seem to make a contrast in the article between the European systems in our system of unemployment insurance do they not have unemployment insurance per se that goes directly to the workers like we have rather than it all getting funneled through the employers I know we have the renter is unemployed there is on unemployment insurance and insurance in the U. K. on and on and in Europe as well this is a scheme which means these schemes have been set up specially the U. K. scheme being set up specifically to deal with the impacts of people being caught for luggage because a corona virus I mean the cynic we're in an extraordinary areas of history as a means no we not being people are being sent home because the economy is time to people things and I'm big and hopefully to save lives and stop the spread of this disease so I mean I guess the government as governments in Europe have decided the best way to do that may if the government took told people to stay home and not to go to work in the best way to deal with that is for the government to kind of pick up the tab until till things hopefully get better huh and so the unemployment rates are lower at least for now and you do note that the amount that they get a chance to be closer to their salaries in the European system than here on the other hand you also note the irony of the current emergency unemployment benefits in the U. S. with a six hundred dollar weekly emergency checks for those who qualify some workers here now getting more on unemployment and they were making out work and declining to get called back to work until the actual benefit expires do you know what Congress allowed that funny math to happen I think I'm with the Bernie Sanders did a great speech I mean you know it's it's it's it's not if it's lit for a limited period of time is now I think basically the idea was we shouldn't be making people suffer join this period because we because because we all telling them to stay home for the for the good of the American people so I think that was possible to the reason this is we're talking about people on minimum wage has so that is not what they're getting a huge amounts of money and that screen is tapped I don't think it was a bad idea I mean I know it was opposed by law Republicans but I guess they wanted to pass the bill so they have to give him something list we can open up the phones for anyone with a connection to Germany or the UK or anywhere else in Europe who wants to compare their unemployment systems two hours what can we learn from each other for the coronavirus era with things so extreme six four six four three five seventy to eighty six four six four three five seventy to eighty or you can tweet at Brian Lehrer with Dominic rush business editor for the guardian U. S. six four six four three five seventy to eighty and we can also go broader than that here callers on anything U. S. economy.

"What is my little one people no cheese mall with mobile what's my over arching take on the three toppings galore both of you have never paid attention to me when I talk about pizza because you know you're taught overarching opinion features is there bad pizza call they'll that's your new opinion as if you know of anyone that's always been my opinion in Europe I guess losing your guidelines now back to everybody's favorite middle man D. B. the metro section of The Boston Globe today that's not I'm going to say might be a lesser paper the little sun is less expensive it has much more content it better interviews it better news coverage more expansive we have more resources around the world well I was at a total pages I would direct you to the Lowell sun so you don't have to run your doors to hang with him out are you gonna do another indoors I think so I think so if you could say tune impending all right so the headline the metro section of love to a traffic light cameras to get a vote Beacon Hill is debating today a proposal I'm from Belmont state senator Cosmo your very own bill Brownsberger I column bill even though he's your side state senator William Branham my neighbor all right so here is the malls this thing LOL no no no no it now according to the bill it's in large part to do with it to to try and ease traffic congestion there we're going to have cameras at traffic lights that can send tickets to people I don't know what one has to do with the other I don't know how this eases congestion in any way but that's what one of the ways they're selling this thing but the bottom line on it is they want to allow municipalities throughout the Commonwealth to put up install cameras at red lights that if you run one and if in the camera's judgment you ran that light you're getting a ticket and good luck fighting however this is a huge mistake this is a mistake that many many states have made it they not only result a lot of times an increase in accidents because people see the yellow coming in they'd hit the brakes because I don't wanna get nabbed for thirty five Bucks but there isn't it it's a lot of times I'm afraid so civil liberties issues with with with appeals and federal civil liberties reward but anyway this is some kind of a appellate issue with these with these things too and it's also just a money grab this is a terrible terrible if you're if you're up it's not actually according to Brownsberger in the lightning make a list of these this year in Iraq dumbest thing in the most ridiculous thing a politician has ever said file Brownsberger says quote we want these cameras to go up in B. money losers that's the wind because then it's public safety that's the dumbest thing right I mean I really cried out that's the way no one ever issue any tickets with these cameras right that's the hope yeah thanks I'm actually surprised it's taken this long for this proposal to come forward because we've had these cameras at toll booths for years now right you can't they catch you they can you going through they they they that's how they bill you right that's how the mass turnpike bill right now by your license plate if you don't have a trading desk yet easy battle here's the bills so so glad I got to say I am while on the one hand public you know public cameras help us solve crimes and do all kinds of things I'm generally against this for a few reasons primarily because I don't necessarily want more cameras out there in terms of an invasion of I guess it's not privacy but it's it's a little big brotherly but you know what I look at it as the instant replay of life if you're there officer Malley throw the flag you got me right away right but if you're going to have the eye in the sky instant replay it's been a lousy in sports it's going to be lousy in life maybe you should read the bill and parochial voices nine seven eight there might be a mutiny if I do not have these guys were appreciative last time so I won't this time however what they're debating today in Beacon Hill it would allow most cities and towns to use cameras at traffic lights and on school buses to punish traffic violations based they do have one out of the front of that thing basically out of a car blows by we have a license plate you're going to do then the targeted violations would include running red lights turning right on red we're not permitted to driving in bus only lanes if that is allowed in there then I know they're not only is no Republican Party in Beacon Hill there's no common sense at all anyone who thinks that a camera should be allowed to write you a ticket for being in a bike lane when there's not a cyclist ten miles from that lane is the craziest thing I've ever heard it's so stupid I'm worried the Beacon Hill will pass correct this is moronic it twenty sixteen report from the Florida department of highway safety motor vehicles find intersections with red light cameras are increases in nearly every type of accident in the years since the cameras were installed rear end crashes went up eleven percent angle crash went up six percent and crashes involving injuries were up nine percent and like I said people are hitting the brakes are accelerating when they see when they see these lights and eight it's just because it is also reaping unfair for bleep sake stop it things have this guys to say that we don't we don't want to make money we want to lose money on this ask the Pooler chief of police of prominence bellies if the bears are wanting them to make money on tickets or lose money it's a it's a money grab resume good points and I agree with both of them but I I'll add in the third which is that this is a a purer in search of a disease is it not do we have the intersection problems across the Commonwealth where people are just blowing through intersections over and over again don't discourage of running what is white lighting on our way home we we'd go similar routes I have I think like eleven ten or eleven red light red light traffic light type things that I have to deal with as I get to route one and then not blah blah never do I see people blowing through the unix like I don't even care that that's there I'm going through one of nobody in less you can tell me that we have a problem with that why are we doing this why would I give up my rights to defective outbox yeah as you pointed Cosmo for no reason no one is not the rash of car wreck injuries because I I agree I mean there are there are notorious intersections in every community thank you then you can deal with on a case by case but it but the dangers for a variety of reasons I don't believe there is an epidemic of people blowing red lights I think someone blows a red light when they're like fleeing the scene of something or or or you might roles that you might I'm I'm guilty your role through the yellow in the golf clubs okay yes and then go looks like you've been maimed and maybe that's what they what they're looking for but encourages blowing red lights I don't feel like a like a right on red when it says no turn on red but there's no one at the intersection right almost always accidental you sick if you don't see the sign accidental in quotes but six one seven two six six sixty eight six is there anybody anybody I'm for cameras everywhere by the way you know this site disabilities argument Cosmo and chatted all my god what they're going to look to Miami there are already everywhere I'm sorry but I don't need to be getting tickets from it also isn't this like we can't have like robots working ins in fast food places because those are real jobs right isn't there some way that you would eliminate some police officer jobs because if they're not writing tickets then what are they doing yeah I don't think prize that Democrats put in this fourth except that it's a money grab yeah I think it's a money grab it'll supplement but the cops are doing is Lauren as Lauren Forsman to coalesce behind

"Is with The Boston Globe in the stories shaping Washington today it's all ahead on C. span radio and we begin with those presidential pardons announced earlier today including rod bill garbage he was the governor of Illinois when he was convicted on federal corruption charges trying to personally profit from his power is governor to fill the Senate seat left vacant when Barack Obama was elected president back in two thousand eight and Michael Milken he was known as the junk bond king in the nineteen eighties when he was convicted of securities fraud also today former New York police commissioner Bernard Kerik jailed on eight felony charges including tax fraud and former San Francisco forty Niners owner Edward DeBartolo junior who pled guilty twenty years ago for failing to report a felony on gambling charges while speaking to reporters at joint base Andrews in Maryland the president was asked about all of this yes we have computer the sense of rod look good he served eight years in jail a long time and I watched his wife on television I don't know her very well I've got a couple of guys use on for a short while the apprentice years ago all seems like a very nice person I don't know but he has served eight years in jail it's a long time to go many people disagree with the sentence is a Democrat he's not a Republican there was a prosecution by the same people call me fitz Patrick the same group very far from his children they're growing older they're going to high school now they rarely get to see their father outside of an R. zero four I saw that and I did your view is set so they'll be able to go back home with his family after serving eight years in jail that was a tremendously powerful ridiculous sentence in my opinion and in the opinion of many others yes what is top justice department for like that you know everybody has the right to speak their mind and I use social media I guess I use it well because here I am here as I probably wouldn't have gotten here without social media because I certainly don't get fair press so I would have got here without social media and with all of the hope is that the average for adults yeah the ball hope you had a Russia Russia Russian dot says all the scams that invited have social media I probably wouldn't be here so I'm very happy with social media but I think he's doing an excellent job he's a strong guy I never spoke about the Roger stone situation Roger so just so you know never work he did work for my campaign that might have been a time warily long before I announce where he was somehow involved a little bit but he was not involved in our campaign at all and I think it was a very very rough thing that happened to Roger stone because when you look at what happened with Kobe after seventy eight page a rific report when you look at what happened today the cave with a recommendation of prosecution and you look at all of these other people and then you look at what happens to general fled a highly respected man look at his life we look at a Roger stone for a tweet and some other things you take a look at what's happening to these people somebody has to stick up for the people so my social media is very powerful I guess mark Zuckerberg just recently said trump is number one in the world on social media which is a very nice day but I guess certainly is something you could be at least a little bit have a voice so I'm able to fight the fake news with.
