"You did. And I, when I went there, this year called me this year. I thought that I wanted why they don't know. They used to, what's really strange, they used to know. So I don't understand how that changed. It came from a New York Times, cover story, plugin boot up, feel free to melt down. I like the title. Feel free to melt it. Very odd. This is a story of The New York Times did in 2003. Oh, I thought it was about Y two K yeah. So that's their reference. You have to have a reference. So that's the reference. Anyway, hello, Kim. Hi. Who should I talk to? Well, let's go to chime because I like the name. I love the name. Line one chime. Sounds like a Internet startup, doesn't it? Yes, it does. Thank you, Kim. Hi, chime, Leo Laporte, the tech guy. Well, good afternoon, Leo. Good afternoon. See? Perfect. Perfect. Specific, you know? Next Tuesday, we're getting our first ATS C 3.0 TV station here in LA. And I need a tuner. But some odds, things, first of all, I need one with text to speech. And preferably with our CA jacks because I have been older set up in the bedroom. I don't need to replace my insignia TV in the living room because it's working fine. I just want to get the 3.0 content in case there's something that's not on the 1.0. On Tuesday, December 7th, a day that will live in infamy. KT TV, channels. What is that channel 7? 11. That's right. You found it real fast, huh? Yeah, well, this is something I should be talking about. We have a big audience on KFI in Los Angeles. So I guess it should. Well, I'm listing on the HD two station fit, because I can't bear to listen to analog a.m. anymore. So ATS, C three is kind of like that. Actually, it's analogous to the analog. Is broadcast television's response to Internet. They want to be able to do more with their broadcast signal. And among other things they hope to do at interactivity, which will require the Internet. It's going to give them like it did with radio. It's going to give them extra side channels. And it's really going to come down to whether you want it or whether it'll be worthwhile. What the TV channel does with it. There's no..

Fresh update on "the new york times" discussed on BBC Newshour
"In London Jacqueline is a state owned mining company in the DRC it's one of the biggest in Africa and sits on the world's largest deposit of cobalt It generates billions of dollars for the Congolese state but Albert Yuma the man whose head is like a mean for more than a decade has been relieved of his post following allegations that millions of dollars had been siphoned off from the company under his watch Mister humor was appointed by former president Joseph Kabila and has been removed by his rival and successor president Felix Tshisekedi Will Ross is our Africa editor Well the announcement was made on state TV So a very public message from the government of president Felix Jessica No official reason given during that announcement but separately journalists including one from The New York Times have spoken to officials who have put it down to part of the effort to clean up this Jacqueline the state owned mining firm and certainly that has been one of the missions of president Jessica who has had a bit of a struggle on his hands because Albert Yuma was heading this organization for more than a decade and a few months ago mister Jessica managed to put a lot of his allies in the organization but it seemed he wasn't prepared to go as far as removing mister Yuma despite the fact that there were a lot of allegations that he had been behind a lot of the corruption over the years and allegations he has denied over and over again And what are the nature of the allegations the corruption allegations against mister humor Well they're quite complex because they've come from all kinds of different organizations over the years But being the head of that organization it's been felt that he has overseen the fact that so much money has reportedly gone missing over the years and different organizations like global witness in 2018 said more than $750 million in payments by mining companies never reached the treasury then there's the Carter center the NGO which has done a lot of work in the Democratic Republic of Congo And it has looked into different problems including in the government not being able to account for more than half a billion in investment loans from Chinese banks And it talked about suspicious transactions involving jacquemine coinciding with Congo's electoral cycles so suggesting that quite a lot of the money that's been siphoned off that should have gone into the treasury was used in an effort to shore up Joseph Kabila's political base Now he's denied any allegations as well as the denials we've had from mister Yuma You say the president just said he is determined to clean up Jacqueline and it's not just an issue of money There are also human rights abuses involved Well that's right In recent months there have been quite a number of investigations looking at the conditions in the mines Some of these are huge minds owned by international companies including Chinese owned companies but an awful lot is also going on in what's known as artisanal mines So very unregulated mines in rural areas where basically there are very few safety controls and you hear about collapsing tunnels and basically a desperate kind of free for all by the local population to try and get some money out of the ground but certainly the now former chairman of jacquemine Albert Yuma he had said his aim was to transform that artisanal sector and put in place lots of safeguards So he described himself as a kind of reformer and a proud nationalist who was going to do this for the country but obviously other people strongly disagreed and saw that he was one of the big problems in the Democratic Republic of Congo who was sort of standing in the way of reform but it will take an almighty effort to transform the sector when you think we haven't even mentioned the fact that armed groups are also involved rebel groups in the east of the country are involved in the mining sector as well as accusations that members of the military have also been involved So it's a huge challenge for the current president Felix Jessica That was our Africa ready to will Ross Malaysia is sometimes portrayed as a model moderate Muslim nation but the case of nurse said a transgender Malaysian woman has exposed the difficulties LGBT communities experience there She was arrested in Thailand in September after fleeing a charge of insulting Islam and is now sought asylum in Australia The BBC's Jonathan Ed reports In a small kitchen in north Sydney a recently arrived Malaysian chats on social media to her followers about her new life And the unfamiliar food choices she now faces Is a refugee and she's fled to Australia because of her gender identity I just been along like two weeks I'm very excited to start my new business to make a better life This is why no subject says she was forced to leave Malaysia She was arrested in January on charges of insulting Islam and recorded herself in custody being assaulted she says by officers from the religious police The charge carries a prison sentence of up to three years I had to save myself by moving to a better place She continued living my life as a transgender woman And to be myself I had to seek a safer place Back in Malaysia she'd built a successful business through her flamboyant social media posts promoting cosmetics giving fashion tips not the good thing about that And here showing off a girdle for women to flatten unwanted bulges It was a bestseller for sajad That she was transgender was widely known But it was her insistence on being seen as both a woman and an observant Muslim sometimes posing in a hijab and then posting about a pilgrimage she made last year to Mecca also as a woman that drew the ire of conservative Muslims She insists she was only trying to be true to herself I am a transgender woman This is the way I live and the way I pray When I pray I am more comfortable being myself and not pretending to be a man But it was being so public about her transgender identity says Muhammad ash resigned abidin the mufti or chief religious adviser of pearl state in Malaysia that got her into trouble Many things that make people in Malaysia urge religious authority to react There are many transgender People don't bother so much about them But deeply or did things that challenge the religious authority Whatever happened to such a it's not something new Nisha ayoba is Malaysia's most prominent transgender activist who was herself once jailed for dressing as a woman She does not see sajat's case as an isolated one We have lost against transgender people specifically It's basically the Sharia law that criminalize our appearance in our dressing Many people do not know actually before the 80s before the Sharia law actually came in transgender people were basically recognized in Malaysia Only when they started to have Sharia law implemented then there is violation towards this minority when it comes to the right as a citizen She makes the point that other Islamic countries like Iran and Pakistan have been able to pass laws to protect transgender rights Malaysia she believes could do the same How are you today.

Miranda Devine: The Media Is Still Avoiding the Real Hunter Biden Story
"This has been going on since the beginning of Joe Biden's career really I mean he's the center of the Delaware He won the election when he was 29 years old And from then on because Delaware is this unique state in America where so many corporations are headquartered there because of its tax laws but mainly the opacity of its corporations law He had really a lot of power in the corporate world and he was also very powerful positions on both the legislative affairs committee and the foreign affairs committee And he was faced by these corporations and these donors gave him lots of money and also other things such as grace and favor jobs for family members especially hunter And so Hunter Biden was given inflated salaries and from that money very early on straight out of college he was expected to pay bills for the rest of the family And so there were stories along the way and even The New York Times have stories I mean Byron York did some brilliant work which I thought in the book on Joe Biden sort of real estate purchases which were very dodgy back in the day MBNA which is a credit card company in Delaware board a house from him a lot higher than comparable houses nearby An executive of theirs And so there was there was quite a bit of reporting done not enough in my view But I think that influence peddling is a Washington disease
Supreme Court Seems Ready to Launch Social and Political Earthquakes
"Headlines on the row case yesterday. It's actually the dobbed case about row. From The Wall Street Journal, Supreme Court majority shows openness to Mississippi's precedent breaking abortion law. From The New York Times, Supreme Court appears open to upholding Mississippi abortion restriction from The Washington Post. Supreme Court seems inclined to uphold Mississippi abortion law that would undermine roe V wade. And from The Wall Street Journal editorial page, an abortions crossroad at the Supreme Court, this part of their editorial this morning. These columns have long supported the policy of legal abortion before viability albeit uneasily. As technology has revealed the development of the fetus. I don't agree with that, but they are libertarian leaning at The Wall Street Journal. I'm Catholic. I think it's wrong. I believe if you're pregnant, you have to have the baby and given the rise of safe haven laws across the United States. If you don't want the baby, go give the baby away. And it will be well taken care of my loving parents. The burden of pregnancy is simply not enough to justify ending that life. It is very inconvenient. It's very hard. It may lead to shame and cost and some sorrow and some risk to the mother. I know all that. But that life is life. And if you get to a doctor, the doctor will take care of you for free if necessary. Give you a prenatal care. And when the baby is born, you can give that baby away. There's no downside. None whatsoever. Safe haven laws. They came up a lot in the Supreme Court argument yesterday because they matter. The burden that used to be lifelong is no longer life long. The safe haven laws are in every state now. You can give away that baby. And it's up to the church, by the way, especially the Catholic Church in any church that has been pro life all these 50 plus years. It's up to us to step up and add even more resources and make them even more available to women having a crisis pregnancy. One they didn't plan on, one that they fear, one that may lead to abuse. And it's important for us to be there for them in a way that we haven't ever been before and perhaps it will unleash a flood of taking care of children in need and finding new adoption of possibilities and finding new parents and taking care of those moms. Crisis pregnancy centers, thank you all these years for waiting. Not over yet. But I think the day is coming when people are going to rush to you to help because they know for sure. It's the only alternative for moms and crisis.
How the Pandemic Crushed the Middle Class
"The one common theme that will not be covered by The New York Times. Recovered by any meaningful I don't even call it The New York Times meaningful, but they have mass distribution, no doubt. Mainstream drive by activist outlet is the deterioration of America's working class. That finally, blue collar workers and people in the muscular class of our country welders and carpenters, electricians, we're starting to make meaningful gains under president Donald Trump. But as soon as we decided to lock down our country, we minted 500 new billionaires. Do you know there were 500 new billionaires in the last 18 months, new billionaires? There was a $3.8 trillion upward wealth transfer from working people to the ruling class. You will not have a country. Let me say this again. You will not have a country without a stable, robust, anti fragile middle class. It will not happen. You see the middle class is not dependent on the state, and they're equally skeptical of the rulers and their skeptical of the permanently poor. Middle class life must always come first when it comes to how are we going to create a robust and long-lasting society and civilization? The middle class has always been a hedge against the government getting too involved in your life for your business. The latest kind of wave of middle class anger has come from moms and dads in school boards across the country. But that really is just the latest manifestation of the economic angst and anxiety that has been created by a kleptocratic oligarchic grueling class that locked down the country unnecessarily is now firing people from their jobs not want to take a vaccine. And then punishing people if they dare disagree with the status quo.
Kyle Rittenhouse Is Exactly the Kind of Enemy the Left Wants to Create
"If you show up to a rally or you show up to a city burning while the National Guard is not there and the police have been told to stand down and you defend yourself because someone's trying to kill you and that someone trying to kill you is a child rapist? You're gonna get tried for first degree murder in your family has to go into debt to try to defend you, which we're seeing right now with Kyle rittenhouse. And by the way, if this was 1892, and it was the KKK trying to take over a city, and it was a black 17 year old that took a gun to go to the burning city. We would have like a national holiday to that young man. Seriously. Not saying that's what we need for Kyle, not saying we'd like a national holiday, but I'm saying that it would be everyone would say this is the most amazing heroic thing I've ever seen. But instead, let's just be let's just be as blunt and honest about it. Kyle rittenhouse tracks a box of the type of let's say enemy they want to create. And we saw this earlier with what happened with the Nicolas Sandman case. You guys remember that the Covington kids? Remember the Covington kids? Where Nicholas Sandman on the steps of the capitol with that lunatic came up with the drum and started banging it in his head, and his head was his face, and we were told that the young kid was the one that's provoking and saying racist things, total lie. Totally exonerated one his lawsuits. But no, the thing that Kyle rittenhouse did wrong is that he fit the perfect type of archetype where Joe Biden came out and said that Kyle rittenhouse is a white supremacist. Said that on Twitter, hope he gets sued for that one day in civil court. There is no evidence of that. But instead, here is the essence of it is that there was a picture, the same thing that happened on the southern border when you had border patrol agents on horseback, and they said, oh, they're using whips to go after migrants, total lie, it's called a bridle or saddle. You ever ride a horse before New York Times weirdo, right? And of course not. Never even west of the Mississippi River, let alone ever mounted a horse, right? No, it's a whip. No, but all they have is the narrative. So Kyle rittenhouse, they had the picture they wanted. AR-15, mouth wide open, young, white, Trump loving, a green shirt and hat backwards, looking like he's kind of playing the insurrectionist. Boom. Put him in
Brian Mudd: The 1619 Project Is the Catalyst of Critical Race Theory in Schools
"In education Understanding where the battle is being fought Critical race theory has of course been an inflection point within this entire debate And it is very much a thing Critical race theory goes back many decades The first published work 1993 The actual book called critical race theory published in 2001 But what by and large has made its way into our schools And in some cases our classrooms has not been critical race theory by name And that's the way that far too many are addressing this particular issue The single greatest catalyst though you've got to be mindful of right now is the 1619 Project Course the work that goes back a few years ago put forward by a New York Times writer advanced by the Pulitzer center As it won a Pulitzer Prize which subsequently got it into our

Every Symbol of American Patriotism Is Under Attack
"Was reading an article this morning online from The New York Times entitled redesigning America's flag. What if we redesigned the American flag? Why not? And so a lot of woke people came up with different designs for the American flag 6 different takes. On old glory. They want to redesign the American flag. It suggests this article suggests, and I need to apologize to you because the other day there was a conversation about the the him lift every voice and sing. As an appropriate pregame anthem if you will, it's often referred to as the black national anthem. It's a beautiful Sean. And I told you that I didn't have that big a deal with it. And a lot of people were offended and I was ready for that. I figured you might be. I just felt like it wasn't that big a deal because it wasn't replacing the national anthem. It was going to be played or it is being played before the national anthem. But there is only one national anthem. And when I read about idiocy like redesigning the American flag I'm reminded that every symbol of patriotism every act of expressing our love of country. Everything that we believe in America as Americans is under attack. Then there should be no wiggle room. At sporting events, either. There should only be one Nash anthem.
The Hunter Biden Laptop Story: If It's Not in the News, It Didn't Happen
"Of course, there was a big cover up back in, I guess it was October, so when all of this was discovered that Joe, the Hunter Biden laptop and the New York Post was about the only newspaper that was covering it until they were told like Matt, not now. You can't cover that. And from the last interview you had when and was with you and mcilhenny, there are co producer and your wife, you had said to her when early on when you guys, I guess we're dating and you were journalists together. You said to her and I have actually used this quote and I've given it a credit to you. You said if it's not in the news, it didn't happen. And that's exactly what happened with the Hunter Biden laptop. They said, not newsworthy, so nobody in America or around the world will know that this actually is real. Yeah, you know, yeah, you know, show you how old I am. I said, I was not in the paper. It didn't happen. And so yeah, they decided to cover this up. They decided to suppress this, not even cover it up surprise. You know, we can't verify the laptop. Well, you've got New York Times. You could 1200 reporters actually, you know, there are emails with 6 people copied on them. Go and ask the other 5 people, then you get the did you send this email. And you know, one of them will confirm it. And if all of them refused to deny it, but then you know it's true, right? You can say, nobody, you know, and no one denying that this was a genuine email. Find out, I mean, they spend so much time and energy working out of Michael Cole and ever went to Prague. I mean, you can find out Joe Biden was in surplus or Hunter Biden was in certain places at certain times. And then you can find out people who emailed and where they were. And you can find out the time that he was there. I mean, these are not difficult things you can send him a list of questions. And he can refuse to answer them. And you can say that. And if he's by the way, it's very easy to prove that you weren't somewhere or you didn't send an email. You know, was there any spelling mistakes and emails, were there anybody named wrongly was the most over some email addresses? If these are fake, how do they get the email addresses? This could collapse in a minute if you put any investigative power behind it. But the problem was they wouldn't collapse. In fact, the more they investigated the more it would be verified.
NYC Allowing Non-Citizens to Vote in Local Elections Threatens Federal Election Fraud

Suspect Released From Jail Days Before Parade Tragedy
"The Milwaukee prosecutor. The DA, what he had done was free. He had been freed on a $1000 bond. He has a record of incredible violence. He tried to run over. Was his girlfriend? Yes. Brooks had a long rap sheet, Wall Street Journal, and the Milwaukee county district attorney's office said he had been out on a $1000 bond. What is the bummed for those who participated in the January 6th events in the capital? There is no pond. We're living in an increasingly dictatorial country because of the left. The only reason you would not acknowledge that is you are afraid to. It's very hard to acknowledge at a certain point in life you've been wrong your whole life. In thinking that the Democratic Party was a force for good, or that The New York Times was a truth teller. Or that universities were positive educational experiences and gave wisdom. It's very hard. My heart breaks for such people. There's a book about such people. The God that failed. It's written by people who believed in communism in the 30s and 40s. When you believe in something your whole life and you then you realize, like this teacher, who wrote this piece that I will read to you. I so admired my shallow teachers and the teaching profession and the teachers union. And then I was awakened. Most of my fellow teachers are morons.
What's Actually in the House-Passed Build Back Better Bill?
"So what is in this bill? This is according to breitbart dot com. They do a wonderful job. House passes behemoth build back better act. Funds, Biden's banking surveillance apparatus, the bill would spend $500 million to hire new Department of Justice tax division surveillance agents to bring civil and criminal cases against Americans if we're not rating enough homes right now. It removes any prohibition regarding Uyghur Muslims in China, Democrats have removed the provision of the previous draft that would have prohibited any funding, provided by title and science spacer technology award a contract subcontract grant or loan to an entity involved with using the forced labor of Uighur Muslims. How about tax pork for trial lawyers? This provision modifies current law expensing rules to allow plaintiff's attorneys to deduct out of pocket litigation costs in the year they are incurred. How about number 6? This is a fun one. The build back better act would add language, creating a tax credit for wages paid to journalists. That's what we need. We need more New York Times reporters. The bill would add $500 million. $500 million. That's the annual operating budget of Pittsburgh every single year to give you an idea. The whole city. For schools of medicine, prioritizing funding, based on racial demographics, and requiring faculty to be hired and students be recruited based on prioritizing racial and demographic characteristics. How about left wing divisive race baiting? This bill with add back language that continues the race baiting attempts. As Americans is oppressive claiming all minorities are denied a full opportunity to participate in the American way of life that's a direct quote out of the bill. That all minorities are denied a full opportunity from participating in American life. There's $2.5 billion for tree equity. It'd be a $2.5 billion slush fund that would send taxpayer dollars to radical environmental groups to plant trees and advance tree equity. The bill asks for hundreds of millions of dollars to promote funding for racism and discrimination training curriculum, funding for healthcare risk training to promote the lips climate agenda and refers to pregnant women as

"President Biden and general secretary G have concluded their Zoom call, it went a long time and there were read apps on the United States side and there are redoubts on the Chinese side. I think what's most important, The New York Times is reporting the Chinese readout shows general secretary G bullying, President Biden on Taiwan.

But China will have to take resolute measures if the Taiwan independence separatist forces provoke compel or even cross the red line. In vivid language that has come to define Beijing's steadfast rhetoric, mister G criticized politicians of the United States who he said sought to use the island status as leverage over Beijing. A trendy described as dangerous. Quote, it is playing with fire. And if you play with fire, you will get burned. The Chinese readout cited mister G

"Election they have fired. The guy who they had hired to bring the other side. Frank frank tell us why did they not run anything barkat on their editorial team. Okay worst theory about it. Because i'm saying it's because they've lost their way so why it's not because we all agreed it's an it's the op. Ed page they did not fail to cover voters who were going to vote for donald trump on the news pages but i wanna come back to the question that john because john. It's a very important one. And i will answer as briefly can. Are there places where the new york times journalism has improved. Are there places where it's not only not lost. Its way but as i said In earlier is leading. The way i would want to one area. Just as an example there are many culture religion the arts incredible breadth and depth. You think about an institution doing this every day. But the point place that i would point to is there climate coverage and it's not just climbed they've they created a climate desk. They are using data and science in multimedia presentations all the time but they're not just coming climate from the perspective of it's hotter and drier plenty of those stories too but also what's happening in industry has industry changing what's happening with electric car vehicles. What's happening to our agriculture. How to farmers see their future growing the food that we need to grow a broad and deep embrace of a topic and by the way you can sign up for a newsletter and get their climate coverage broad right to as well as seeing it imprint. If you still reprint or digitally. So i think there are places where the journalism has continued to improve in advance and by. It's not because of the rule the mob but it's in response to genuine reader interest and that's a healthy form of journalists all right. I think that's a very good characterization of where the fault line is in this argument as we conclude round. Two of this intelligence squared. Us debate and now we move onto round three round. Three is where the debaters have their last stand to try to persuade you to vote for their side of the argument. They will be making brief closing statements. Those statements will be two minutes each and speaking i to summarized her position in support of the resolution here again is unger sargon so you may not have heard of project feels. The project feels has heard about you in two thousand seventeen. The new york times is data. Science department started asking young very educated readers to rate how articles or making them feel and how much they were making them feel to make them feel angry. How angry you make them feel sad. How sad and what they found was that the more emotional reader felt while reading an article the higher they ranked that emotion. The more engaged. They were the longer they stayed on the page and crucially the more likely they were to click on the ad next to it. They took this information and what they did with it was. They created a machine learning algorithm that now predicts how articles at the new york. Times are gonna make readers feel at a sell. This prediction to advertisers in advertiser can come to the times. Now in the times will say how would you like the reader to be feeling when they encounter ad and the advertiser can then choose any choose how much they want them to be feeling again very important. So with the times data science team did was essentially monetize your emotions and it has been wildly wildly.

"Bhatia i wanted to take the question to see. Just how how sweepingly you mean the statement that the new york times has lost. its way. so you've talked about the the the the infelicitous events that you've talked about particularly around american politics aditorial page cetera. But frank talked about how you know. The new york times is covering wars around the world disasters around the world. They're doing business reporting. They're doing cultural reporting are. Are you suggesting that all of this is infected. By the problem that you're talking about happening in the editorial page in the op-ed page or are you limiting your argument in or should we be thinking that you're limiting your argument at different way so as i tried to explain in my opening statement to me it seems like a business model has made the times so financially successful in all the ways that frank laid out is corrosive to journalistic values. And what we're seeing right now. Is those two things sort of coming to ahead. The problem is is that the business model precludes them from delivering the news when it contravenes what its readers wanted here and not just what his readers want to hear it but what. Its most extreme readers here because it has ceded the measure of success to digital engagement and the most extreme people are always the most engaged. That's my argument will. I just wanted to save. I trust the new york times the mall the southern away from important todd in questions in the united states reporting will be opinion so yes. I completely trust virginia. The obituary on mary. Tyler moore. Because i don't think Issue today the closer it comes to the issues that are actually driving today. Paul close it comes to issues on which recall leadership of in your times as very very strong view the less attractive to deal the new york times and that is a real concern for or worse. Festive thing but we need to use tape record but we need a newspaper will tell the truth even when it's uncomfortable but we need one institution in american life that enjoys respect from across board. I love the guardian newspaper in the united kingdom. It's a good progressive voice. As many things. I agree with that that we have the the guardian in the united states. Ready and when the newspaper of record Until the guardian or lose something very very important. Virginia i ask virginia. Quick question should the new york times have run an op. Ed by a trump voter in the lead in the six months before the election. And if they if if yes. Why do you think they did not. I'm not sure that you know the op. Ed page though. It has three conservative writers and and some of the ones that have been fired and clara have been resigned. Including barry weiss and james bennett are not themselves trump voters either but the the the the not sure that they should have given that it is center-left although center left op ed page. The wall street journal did not make the case for bernie sanders. They didn't have introduced. An you. know an op-ed writer about bernie sanders. Because that page is known to be on the right the op. Ed page as you know is quite distinct the rest of the coverage and i think we've agreed that we're talking about as yasha made clear is an inflection that he thinks determines news is reported. Not how the feds come across. And i do think that we. I've pointed out to you that that that the page has been filled with accounts of why people did vote for trump. If not making a robust argument in favor of trump. I would be hard pressed to say that there was a case for this twice. Impeached historically unpopular president but was only once impeached at the time. Maybe they could have found someone we're hearing from but Yasha your partner has argued that he doesn't think there is a good case. The trump should it be given a second term and that the new york times had no obligation to publish one. You i would. I would take your question. I would agree with you. I would say yes absolutely. The new york times should have found somebody in the universe. They're they're there who could of made a case. For why trump y disruptor why someone who was so sacrilegious to american politics had appealed so many so frank. What does it say to you in terms of the argument were having that the paper did not mistake. Well yes it was a mistake but did it lose its way. What a dean by come back the executive editor say later what they're then editor of opinion. Say we need more and that was the thousand the second election. That was okay. They said that after the first election after the second.

"The most brilliant journalists of color from dot that same class and so there's no ideological diversity and they don't even reflect the minority communities. They come from. This is my point right when you when you you say that this kind of like. Whoa kness is the result of having a diverse workforce. It is not because they are not reflecting the communities that they come from eighty one percent of black people oppose defunding police right but you will not see that opposition in the new york times owner. Bring in your show josh go. Why does this matter by the way you might be able to find the police. That's fine why is it important About in the new york times because y- of the new york times lose touch with reality when the done seat represented ghost of appoint about diversity that yesterday times is a diverse staff of people from different if misty's who went to harvard university since that he's a knocked representative off. The valley does us city in. Which is not kate. I think i was one of the voices of resistance. I am very proud to have warned about the dangers of donald trump and a four-time populism ron world earlier than most but in use paper needs to hold on facts. The new york times. It was the only news outlet to take seriously the sexual abuse charges the sexual assault rape charges levelled by one terror against joe biden You know the biden campaign was appalled. They walked through every part of these charges which turned out to be false now. A lot of writers on the left had already said they seemed false on their face and certainly they could be away would have been an obstacle to buy the presidency. But the new york times did not primarily she did not dismiss them out of and they instead investigated them and found those charges wanting. I think we can all agree that the charges were quick to rest by the new york. Times all right. So your point made in. Virginia ticket to baccio bochu. Virginia's pushing back against your partners argument that the paper is showing a A pro-democratic bias in the way that it is covering the news not just on the bed page but you can jump into this conversation. We're be like now in terms of trump and biden. I just don't believe that the two of you think biden is getting the same treatment from the near times. That trump did. I just don't believe that you actually think that. I don't think anybody who can read could possibly think that and have a little. Let me just clarify. Do think that trump and biden journalistically merit the same coverage or the same kind of coverage. I think that question is a partisan question. I mean that that is exactly the What we're getting at here so so so so. Donald trump of course was outrageous but that outrageousness was in a very symbiotic relationship with the news media. That was covering him was getting rich off of covering his outrageousness. Now the new york times in twenty seventeen printed trump's name ninety thousand times which means that it appeared the equivalent of every two hundred fifty words. Okay that's like four times per article and you can compare how many times president obama's name appeared. Maybe are thinking. Oh well that's just normal for president. We know how many times president obama's name appeared in his second year in office and it was forty thousand times. Okay so i don't understand your argument. Is that the omnipresence of trump's name and coverage of trump was the paper feeding its audience. Negative coverage of trump wanted. To hear is for financial reasons is out what your argument is doing. Exactly what i said about the new dna of the times where does is success measure. It is measured in terms of engagement and there is nothing that gets the heartbeat of liberal elites going like the word trump bucket. If i man. I think it's very important to recognize. John got to this in his question. Donald trump was not just another president. He came to washington intending to be a disruptor. He was an anti 'institutionalised. He attacked not just as a political rivals but his political allies. If they didn't toe the line much of what he was doing and we have seen this in very thoughtful writing from people who are inside the administration working for him was a challenge to democracy itself. Let us just say to. John's question covering donald trump was not like covering any other president. He was unlike any president. We have had in this country's yasha your jonathan excellent question which is weather. Joe biden maritza seem kind of coverage on slump. What would say is that. They should be covered by the same standards. And if you play the same standards to july donald trump and in my opinion will come up with many more critical stories about donald trump and joe biden and that is absolutely fine. Bad is what journalism is the problem in. The last years has become that the media including the new york times has reflexively stocked to anything. Donald trump who has allies said even in cases where it might be that they turned out to be light. One of those times spent the toll misinformation. Disinformation which your times though thinks of itself as combating has been used was when a few people suggested visit possibility that kodak nineteen escaped a lab in china. This was labeled by the new times in fact checks and other newspapers as conspiracy. Few it was put beyond the balance of respectable At nobel prize winners in virology banda facebook youtube for discussing those few weeks for fourteen fifteen minutes. The only mentions of his furious in new york. Times was as obvious lewis. Well today i don't know what the truth is you know yet today at the white house is taking this very seriously and finally osama mainstream media is taking it seriously as well but there plenty of times. Ufo's were considered far and wide to be a preoccupation of crazy people. Now they're taken seriously by the guards so these things evolve in the new york times ever since you know people on the center left center right. Started to say oh. We've decided that the loudly rapidly hypothesis is ban. So that's the whole reason that we have to talk about it and use it as an opportunity to worry that liberals band speech people have talked about the lab theory to death. And as far as i know it's being investigated on the investigation into being closely watched by the new york giants. You jump in. Frank showed the the observation. You made Also carry something that goes way beyond the new york times but unfortunately so many of things that the former president donald trump said route the coveted crisis. It's ho- sore it's Gonna mirror miraculously disappear or hydroxy. Chloroquine will cure or whatever it is proved to be fundamentally incorrect if not outright fabrications the president's credibility sunk to a level that we've not seen before and whether it's the new york times or any place else they had to take that into consideration in reporting whatever he said the lab league theory which i don't think was banned but was viewed skeptically and covered in ways that the by all news organizations most anyway very carefully and reflected that credibility problem and it reflected the flood of disinformation that we now confront so. I think it's wrong to say that the new york times by itself and some egregious degree banned the.

"Nor vpn dot com slash intelligence. Welcome back to intelligence squared us. I'm your host john donvan. Let's return to our discussion. Thank you for that wrap up. Frank says no. You've now heard the first opening remarks. Then let's move onto the screen next arguing for the resolution of the new york. Times has lost its way among yasha screen is yours. Thanks so much. I'm really looking forward to this debate. And a couple of important things in which we agree. We all agree the new york times as one of the most important institutions in the united states. We all want the new york times to succeed. We also all agree. That new york times is not donald. Trump would put it the failing new of times. The idea that the paper is in financial trouble. Ovitz about to go bankrupt. Fed is about to fail in. That kind of way is really raw. My interest in this between need a newspaper of record. She's luffing your times It's we need an institution. Envy nited states that people from different hats of a political spectrum can look to recognize even if it is beautiful often that it represents the truth that it represents reality in a way that vein can trust and the thing. I'm worried about a central three main changes times implemented over the last year's detract from its standing as the newspaper of record. The i is a very clear narrowing opinion envy up and you didn't have to take my impression as read on that. You can take what that columnists within the new york. Times are saying when he talked Multiple figures within at world f told me over the last years that even quite uncontroversial criticisms of progressive orthodoxy chand by the editors assad things that you simply cannot same time even if ninety percent of a population in america might agree with them. One example of this is very hard within the new york times. Criticize the idea of defending the police and yet we have seen just now in the mail race in new york city that the top candidates chosen by people of color in a progressive city in the united states. Very much in disagreement with that. Slow the second thing i worry about. Is that this is not on just about your opinion pages. It is also a bad news coverage yet increasing seeing an attempt to get away from the old form of the tippety which could be devolve into two ciders abba. Climate change should get scientists who believes in climate change. One denies it. Good when visit consensus. Which would be reflected in the pages of terms the new moral clarity as journalists. Hold it often goes in the opposite direction. The news pages of coming away of managing benard of trying to make clear a which side is right even when that side is making a mistake so the question about future of new york times is not whether it will succeed financially. I'm confident that it will. It's about the role that it's likely to play in american and as has argued at the moment in your times is running after its subscriber base tries to maximize the revenue dollars from the people who most agree with the world of new york times. It is entrusted turning into an american version of guiding stokes. Piece full the most progressive voices in the country. What we need is to preserve the road of the newspaper of record that can actually be a basis of reality for automatic. That is what your time. Losing that is wi fi but is losing. Its thank you again. Our final opening statement will be against the resolution. It comes from virginia heffernan. Virginia your moment. So i started writing for the new york times almost exactly twenty years ago and i was on staff for eight of those years. i should say about the liberal elite according to pew center last year the numbers are very different from what baccio adjust represented to us thirty eight percent of the times readers earn more than seventy five thousand dollars a year but twenty five percent earn between thirty and seventy five thousand dollars and twenty six percent have a household income under thirty thousand dollars in the midst of this debate. I wanna tell you about. Just one article. The obituary of mary. Tyler moore not exactly world's historical piece in two thousand six when moore was still alive..

"Hard way that if they ran beds that their own colleagues disapproved of those colleagues take to twitter very publicly denounce them and their bosses at the near times. Would listen to that. Twitter bob again and again. We have seen the times as leadership caving to social media. Mobs and what i want to argue. Is that. This is not a glitch in a hallowed institution. This is actually a feature a nana bug of the times is current iteration of its current. Dna now this new iteration began in two thousand fourteen. When the the now publisher ag salzburger was tasked with helping the times of all into a digital first publication and he came up with the times ovation report and that report was leaked to the media. So we know it's in it and he found that there were a number of things. The times was not doing well enough the first thing. He blamed the wall separating. The business side of journalism audience development from the newsreel. Eiji felt that the the task of growing the audience fell squarely on the newsroom. And the second thing was he felt underwhelmed by the degree to which times reporters where selling their stories or promoting themselves or really becoming social media. Influencers leadership must identify rising digital stars. And ask them how the times can do better. That's a quote from the time ovation report. So this actually reflected a larger shift towards measuring success in terms of engagement online. And of course what that means is you're allowing the most extreme readers to determine what success looks like because the most engaged readers are always the most extreme ones the new dna of the near times explicitly called for seating moral journalistic authority to the worst place on the planet. Which is the internet and the worst place on the internet. Which is twitter now. Ag was right that this was good business. Times is making a lot of money pursuing this but it is bad journalism now. I think that my colleagues on the other side arguing against the proposal are gonna argue that. This was a democratizing force. This was the new york times allowing the readers the masses to speak back to them. Nothing could be further from the truth. The median income of a new york times reader is one hundred ninety one thousand dollars. The new york times always was and remains a reflection of ruling class in worms. Now the ruling class does like good journalism about its enemies. But that's all you're ever gonna find at the new york times which has really lost. Its way very much about younger sergeant. Our next speaker will be arguing against the resolution against the idea that the new york times has lost. Its way here is. Frank says no frank. The screen is yours. Thank you very much. And i look forward to the debate in the conversation here. Let me say the outset. I'm not gonna argue that. The new york times is perfect. I'm not gonna argue that. The new york times hasn't made missteps misjudgements errors and that hasn't got things that he can improve. I don't think anybody looks at any news organization and doesn't bring their point of view their worldview to that experience but i do think we need to be first and foremost precise and in considering what this resolution is all about that. The new york times has lost. Its way that somehow fundamentally forgotten how to do. Journalism is doing journalism anymore. Losing its way is not about getting better. Losing its ways being fundamentally a disoriented and in the wrong place. The new york times must navigate several things and these are the things we need to keep in mind as we define whether it has lost. Its way i it's journalism is it good is it fair is it inclusive is a professional is accountable when it is right wrong and needs adjusting the storytelling is that storytelling creative bold imaginative. Does it make use of the various platforms. The technologies to inform engage news consumers and finally the business model can generate the revenue needed to maintain seventeen hundred journalists around the world on a daily basis. And all the support system that's needed. I the journalists every day. The new york times still does despite what you just heard. Some of the most remarkable journalism in the world breaking news coverage of the assassination of haiti's president within the first twenty four hours fifteen separate stories from reporting on what happened so far as it is known to the implications on the street in the politics. Secular peace stutters in israel Another headline diamond rush in south africa. Another red cradles nurtured china's next generation of communist leaders a breathtaking reach around the planet and coverage from across the country detailed coverage of the collapse of the condo in surf site a remarkable coverage of heat drought wildfires What to know about the latest corona virus and the delta variant arts culture science. These are areas that most news organisations. Don't even touch anymore. And yet the new york times does it in detail and depth on a daily basis from inc.

"So. I came to the times last year. And i came at large part because of how excited i am but the mission and how important i see the journalism and our goals are seeking truth. Help people understand a little. That's just exciting. To and times. Obviously well known hundred. Thirty pulitzers seven point eight million subscribers and we're currently at a point where we have about seventy six million readers. Tweet coup visit our site to conceive reader content. But we've got bigger ambitions than that. We have an addressable market over one hundred million curious people worldwide who we believe are willing to pay for the type of english language journalism that the times produce and we're very confident in our ability to penetrate a large portion of that market. So that's scaling. That's massive scaling. We need to be able to scale to be able to succeed to meet our goals meeting. Our goal has required a lot of transformation over the years obviously founded in eighteen fifty one. We started print only company. We went online and get the online site. And then we had to really transition to a digital. I were focused on digital as a way to scale impact and bringing new readership and that got us the first step of the way but we realized we needed a more sustainable business model and we moved to a subscription for a model weekly we have content worth paying for and that we could run a subscription based business and deliver content to those who are willing to pay and get the funding. We need to continue to deliver fabulous content. It's really important just to be able to keep doing as we move forward. We need to move beyond just the core new subscription and into news and news adjacent content. So think about some of the things you've already seen from the times cooking or games or wire cutter reviews these are things that are adjacent hap- similarity to news and what we're doing already but may it a different audience or may have different appeal to relationships. Were investing in our products to drive this growth and to drive this forward. We need create products happens to that great products but we also have to invest ambitiously in platforms. If we're going to be able to scale and actually deliver against all of these different products in all of this type of growth were talking about we believe if done right platforms are what can enable the times to move faster and exponentially propel growth. We want to be able to move fast. Won't be able to experiment. We want to be able to try to be able to spin things up and down quickly in no if they work all of that and to do that we need the right things in place that allow us to Handle that quickly and easily. So let's talk a little bit about what defines platform product and what's different about product management in the platform space from what you normally think of most people when they think of product management start with zero to one product management or growth or engagement or these other areas that are about developing a product and bringing to an end jews. And that's amazing. And i'm so impressed with the work that the product managers in all of those spaces do on a day-to-day basis in the new york times. That said there's there's other areas that really need to work for for those products and doing successful so products really view them as serving in customers or in our case readers to solve a common need or common set of needs. So they're really what you see at the end of the day. What the company known for out there publicly but in order to get those things out there we need to serve our internal users and shit value provide value to our international users so they can Value to the end users in a fast and cost effective man platforms good platforms. Transform with the journalists are able to products and business able to deliver by enabling faster delivery and by allowing for much more iteration with much less cross organization coordination. It shouldn't require lots of back and forth between different organizations to be able to move things forward one of the other things that's really unique about inter about platform product management is. You're not focused on the end users. You're focused on what i call the middle users. The product delivery peons the engineers. The people who are doing that delivery work. they're important. They're the people who need you need to understand who you have to really have a sense of who's use cases you have to meet but that isn't it that isn't sufficient when you're working in platform platform pm's have to also anticipate company will evolve to meet and user needs and use this deprioritize platform investments. This is really important if the platform teams bill things that aren't relevant or useful to the the middle users. The people who are building systems. Ben they will get used won't move forward likewise if they build things that don't enable those middle users to meet their goals for the end users. They still won't get used even if they're solid in and of themselves so platform teams When pm's really have to work on user empathy and really have to think through how they're going to show that how you're going to do a two tiered discovery process that allows them to understand both those middle users need to deliver but what the end users actually need when they consume the product. So you're able to move in the right direction. If a platform succeeds the company can be nimble and the company can deliver net new value to its end users without incurring significant costs. And this is big. This is really the promise I'll talk very very briefly. One of the things we're working on building out is an identity platform across different systems. Tools etc are different products over the years as teams built and create a new products. They often needed identity systems. And don't they're out. It was the fastest most effective way to get things out the door. They had things need to deliver and it was important. And there wasn't clarity around anything else. So we've got lots of different systems. What we're doing now is trying to build a holistic against the platform that allows us to connect across all of our different products and allows all of our different products to go on top of it. This allows us to have a much better understanding of our relationship with with our readers and it also allows our our middle users are are developers. Do not have to continually reinvent. The wheel gives us flexibility. it enables detoro. it enables so many different things but we need to have a platform that everybody else can build on top of to be really successful with the rest of it. So let's talk about platform as internal product at the new york times and why the times investing we face common.

"The race gave her a really big jolt at the time really catapulted her from someone that a lot of people who pay close attention to this stuff were impressed by an interested in but thought she might have a really hard path to victory and then once the time aditorial board got behind her she really shot into the top tier of the top tier conversation had a huge fundraising response to that. And then all of a sudden she was really catapulted in in the polls she seems to have been Doing very well in manhattan especially but to your prior point seems to not have really broken through at least in the first place votes. I rank votes with in communities of color. Talk a little bit about what you saw. You know saw from her candidacy in response to her and the role. You the role you think. The times editorial board played in in catapulting her candidacy. Sure that time that israel board is a proudly aggressive and openly progressive editorial board Certainly maybe not as progressive as some in the city might want but we are progressive You know we saw katherine garcia as The best person to execute on and The things the city needs through that prism She may not be as far to the left as we are uncertain issues but we felt strongly that she could be pushed And that she was a really good manager who could kind of get the job done as she sent her campaign. I'm obviously you know. The voters felt differently. And so i. I think i'm very proud of artists i mean. I think that she was the best candidate and she was the right candidate for for us At but at the same time. I think there's a lot of talent in the race and i think You know maya wiley is proof. Positive that there's a lot of progressive energy. I also suspect that. A lot of garcia voters may have put wiley second. I don't think they're that far apart ways And then you know on top of that. You know eric adam for me as the editorial board my only regret is that Our endorsement doesn't hold the same sway in east flatbush that holds in park slope. Both for on park avenue and so to me that says There's more work to do and I really believe strongly that we should be as much as possible for the entire city. And so i won't until until we make some headway there and is that is that a reflection of the fact that would impresses a newspaper editorial board from someone's career and from someone's interviews with you and all the vetting you do is very different from the fact that eric adams has been working and developing relationships in these communities for decades Is how do you sort of. Think about the disconnect there is it. Is it understanding Better sort of y. Many communities responded the way they did to eric adams or is it trying to figure out a way for the boards opinions to really get in front of more voters and have more weight in different communities. I mean i think it's all of the above right now. I think in order to make them more persuasive arguments. We need to better understand Voters and communities that we didn't reach As as effectively And so you know. I i mean i'm feeling good today right i really am but i also think there's always room for self reflection and i think there's an opportunity here Listen black americans. In general i think specifically have had such a traumatic and disappointing history with mainstream newspapers..

"Eight hundred thousand plus votes in turnout is looking at least in raw numbers like it's an increase from the last wide open city election cycle back in two thousand thirteen so many differences between now and then but turn out looking in raw number slightly up. We're going to have to crunch the percentages eventually and see what that looks like like. I said there are many tens of thousands of absentee ballots. Still to come in probably well over hundred thousand across the city were waiting on the final numbers in terms of what the board of elections has received but Those can come in all the way until a week after primary as long as they're postmarked on primary day earlier and so we won't know that again for about another week. The board of elections is going to do a rank choice simulation on june twenty-ninth which i think maybe a little bit misguided because it's going to give people a false impression that the ranked choice voting instant runoff has actually been done when they're just going to do what they have so far in terms of in person boats and not having counted the absentee votes yet. So there's a little bit of strange stuff coming up in terms of what the public could no But we will get a sense. Next week of the in-person votes and that's the bulk of the votes raid the eight hundred thousand plus in person boats. Maybe another hundred. Hundred fifty thousand absentees. So the in person votes were going to get a better sense right now. All we know is the first rank that people put and what we're going to get a better sense of next week is coup filled out their full ballot who ranked more than one candidate who ranked two candidates for five and what a lot of those rankings look like and we're gonna get a simulation of the ranked choice voting runoff out of the board of elections next week. Even though that will not be official results who will not be final results. Because it's still will not have the absentee ballots included so a lot going on. Aol race three candidates. Who have any chance to win. Eric adams my wiley kathryn. Garcia other candidates have conceded or have no mathematical chance to win. Andrew yang gave concession remarks. He's looking like he'll finish in fourth place Last night and had quite a stunning fall from where he entered the race And then scott stringer also a fairly stunning fall from where he thought he would be and many thought he would be in this race. He's gonna look. He's looking like a wind up in fifth place in this race. A lot to watch for their a lot to watch for in the city controller absentees ranked choice tally whether brad lander can hold onto this fairly wide lead that he has the opportunity there for a change in results would be if cory johnson winds up having been the number two choice on the ballot on the ballots of voters who voted for other candidates. Who will be eliminated in the instant runoff. And that's not an impossibility in part because cory johnson Was the generally the best known figure in that race being the city council speaker and it's also an interesting situation where brad lander running pretty much furthest to the left in that crowded field in ranked choice voting when you have someone who sort of running on one of the polls whether it's to the right or to the left they don't always make it as the second or third choice on that many ballots of other of voters about other candidates. So that'll be interesting to watch to see if that that holds up and a whole lot more. I didn't even get into here. The borough president races the city council races. There was so much on the ballot as those of you who voted saw..

Well we know some things and we don't know a lot because in part because The primaries were crowded and competitive the so much on the ballot in part because of the expansion of absentee balloting in part because of the start of the use of ranked choice voting. So there are a lot of layers to these elections There are some things we know. There's some things we don't know we're digging into both of those some of the things that we can take away from primary day in the election thus far and some of what to watch for going forward we have a great show for you today.

Detoro board will join me shortly to discuss the choices they made in those three races. How those candidates are doing and what comes next. Those candidates of course were kathryn garcia in the mayoral primary. Now she's in third place but she has far outpaced expectations in this race so far and she's one of the three candidates in the mayoral primary that have a shot to win of any kind. The favourite there of course is eric adams who has a roughly eighty thousand vote lead. Roughly nine percentage points over mile wildly. Who's a little bit ahead of kathryn garcia and those are the three candidates in the running as we wait to count absentee ballots and do the ranked choice run off in another race that the times endorsed in the democratic primary for comptroller brad lander city council member from brooklyn is surprising.

"Yeah we had it downgrade just like every other mammal right there. Fifty four hundred other mammals and they all seem to be just fine but if you look at humans we all have these diseases and so many of them respiratory diseases that other animals don't have met our ancestors didn't have so. This was the first question. I tried to answer is. Why are we breathing so improperly. Why do asthma rates. Continue to go up year. After year after year and allergies and chronic sinusitis in sleep apnea and it turns out that so much of this is tied to this. Anatomical change that has occurred in our faces over the last three hundred years so if you were to look at an ancient skull perfectly straight thi this vary forward growing phase. This huge jaw modern schools about ninety percent of us. I'm a great example have crooked teeth. Our mouths have grown so small that they no longer have partito grow straight. So they grow crooked and this means that we al-sabah smaller airway small mouth smaller airway breathing problems. And no one's refuting. Any of the science is very clear. You can look up a zillion ancient skulls and you can see their faces and then you can look at modern skulls and see what's happened. It's just. there was so little awareness of it. That really shocked me. It doesn't make sense biologically that we would do something so bad for us. What are we doing wrong than that has caused our face to change so that we're not reading what came first are our face changed and then we didn't breathe properly or we weren't reading properly so our face changed well. Life is always changing is always evolving. The so if you look at a skull from thousand are several hundred thousand years ago to one. Today it's very different but that change happens at a very slow pace so animals are able to adopt to it and adapt and we were just fine. Our ancestors were just fine but the changes that happened in the last few hundred years happened so quickly and so suddenly that we haven't been able to adapt and so that's why we're breathing so poorly so the main culprit here is lack of chewing because of a highly processed diet of industrialized foods. So teeth can grow crooked within a single generation of eating industrialized foods and we saw that in the eighteen hundreds when all of the process flour and process rise and baked goods and soft stuff bottled stuff and can stuff really started spreading throughout europe. And then we saw very quickly in the us as well so again. There isn't too much controversy about this even though the sounds like some crazy hypothesis. It's not there's there's very clear science but a lot of people haven't looked at how those changes have affected our ability to breathe. And that's what. I really tried to dive into on this book. It makes sense that it would. That are are not a practicing in using our. Musk kill moscow blah. you know what. I'm saying muscular structure and our bone structure of our face by chewing harder.

"To get people to adopt a completely new technology and so. So that was what was appealing about me and now I'd love to talk a little bit more about your case study. especially most are than ever before we're living. In Times of uncertainty saw brand strategy is so crucial and a solid brand strategy at that making show marketing is purposeful. Sorry, it'd be really awesome if you could share how you did. Bring this brand strategy to live with mocking and also the importance of developing a certain brand strategy that does the whole organization as you did at the Times. So I'd love to know first of all. Why is it critical to establish a strategic brand foundation for any kind of organization that you cannot? You have so I think it's really all about the things that you want your customers in your audience to understand about your company, and then I also think in today's Day and age. You need people to understand what you stand for as a company. Right the things that you value I think we've seen that become a lot more important probably in the last decade than it used to be right, not a lot of consumers used to be super invested. Invested in the values in the background of the companies that they were buying were, but we've seen that change pretty drastically in the last decade I think particularly with sort of the millennial and Gen Z. Generations, and so a strong brand strategy with values and principles that define your organization define what differentiates it define what you stand for. Would that really helps you do is once you have that permeating the organization that helps you communicate a consistent message. Message to the people that you're trying to reach and consistency in your message ultimately equals clarity in who you are, and what you stand for, and whether or not your customers are going to be willing to invest and buy into your brand, and so that's why I think it's really important to set a foundation across particularly the parts of your company are communicating to your audience every day within your products within your marketing within your even corporate communications. Communications right definitely key. Just talk us through your personal experience when you first dotted your role there. What was the brand's message was? Was it something you had to kind of? Was it that you had to uncover overseas? Completely new brand message pushing out. How did you go about doing that? I think it was something that existed in a lot of people's minds, but that really needed to be codified and communicated company-wide so to give you an example. At the? Times they're journalists who have been there for many many years. There is a publisher who comes from a family that his own. The New York Times for. The entire thirty and so you have a lot of really strong institutional knowledge about what the company is, and what it stands for that, said we are in sort of a very complex and very crowded digital media landscape. Now days you have new kinds of readers who are coming to experience the times in a way that's.

That's not a bad homework grading job on his point. Yeah! I tried that out, but I had a couple of. Learning programs in my junior beer, and then I took the plunge, and changed my major from economics to metality my senior year, and my senior year was voted almost entirely puzzles I took courses on word puzzles, math puzzles muzzles of course on the psychology of Puzzles, which was what's going to our brain as solving problems took on crossword magazines, and my thesis was on the history of American, were before eighteen sixty I had a research, Fred at the Library of Congress and has a fantastic library, the libraries practically my second home during my senior year. I can imagine the stacks spending so much time there. What was the reaction of your parents and the people close to you when Not only. Am I going to study? Mythology Puzzles in college I'm going to create my own major and I'm going to devote serious time to this and actually making a career this. Yeah well. My a mother was a writer and create a tight, and she liked the idea. My Dad was more of a corporate type. He was personnel personnel director for our printing, company. And he looked askance at the idea, but he thought you know it's A. It's the space that I'll go through. You always sent. Hustles are will make a great advocation nodding vocation. You know it's a hobby something to do on the side. After I you I went onto the University of Virginia. School of law and I got a JP. But. I never took the bar exam. Graduated I went to work as an editor at across magazine come. And have never looked back. So was it crosswords that pulled you in in kind of kept your attention along the professional standpoint, even in those couple of decades before you got the New York Times. Well. I've always liked any kind of. Cross were actually Kinda came kind of late to was writing my own puzzle book when I was twelve. I still have all these. In all these creative types of puzzles that I invented my childhood hero is Sam Loyd. WHO's considered America's all time greatest also maker, live work around eighteen, seventy to death in nineteen eleven and I. Just fascinated by his work. After I graduated from Moscow I'm worked for Penny. Press magazine companies and there was this magazine called Games that started. And there was devoted to all kinds of puzzles and games. I was there for fifteen years, and then at the time since one thousand nine create. So when you look at those years before you got the job at the Times. What can you point to is the biggest thing you did that? Position you to get this job? The super unique super. Admire job at such a high profile publisher. The I'm only the fourth crossword editor at the. New York Times. The first one was in nineteen, forty two. And alternate, my predecessors were older. My immediate predecessor was seventy seven when he died and I got the job I started when I was forty one. What are the things? I think that helped me Oh boy, there are a lot of things about me. I have the world's only college degree in puzzles. A. you could say you set yourself up for that. A working for Games magazine was great I also founded the American Crossword Puzzle Tournament, in one thousand nine, hundred, seventy, eight and directed at every year. I think my it was actually a plus because the person who hired me solve. The puzzle world was moving into a laconic at age I was hired I started in nineteen ninety-three. That was in the infancy of the Internet. But yeah, I think they could see that. crossword on would be solved online you know eventually it would be nice to have a younger person and one other thing. There used to be a gathering of crossword constructors in New York City once a month to have lunch. You know you get to. Talk about. And talk about words and so on. It was all older people it was. Everybody was fifty up and it. Probably the average age was sixty five or seven days I was the one exception. They let me into their group, and I think the people that I think the time saw me as someone who could bridge the generations I could keep the older salvors. Bring in younger solvers. That's what I tried to do. You attended literal puzzle parties as part of it. Sensing a I'm sensing a trench here. That's going to be more and more of these puzzle parties. So today when you look at your workflow and how you make sure you get the puzzles edited out the door on time. What does it look like? How much time do you typically spend on a crossword for a given day? And can you just walk us through some of the basic steps for making sure that's ready to print. Yeah. Well, the biggest part of the job is actually looking at male I get more than one hundred twenty five submissions the week cross for We can publish by seven because seven days a week so there it's It's a tremendously competitive to get a puzzle except. When I started in one thousand, nine hundred eighty was basically a department of one. who was me now? I have to assistance and we're about to hire two more the program has been very successful. It's the crossword is now a very profitable? Of The New York Times. It costs thirty nine, ninety five to subscribe to the Crossword Online. More than seven hundred thousand people have done this awhile. That's in addition to the puzzle being in print edition and it being having the being in bestselling crossword books and being syndicated to newspapers all over the country, so it's a very profitable business and I'm proud of. Helping support the quality journalism at the New, York. By a profitable crossword. But when I get back to your question was. What's my daylight? Go ahead? Everyday is different, but big part of the day could be looking at submissions once. A puzzle is accepted isolated for particular day of the week. Monday is the easiest day of the week wouldn't call them actually easy puzzle that it's easy medium. That's where you should start. If you've never saw prosperous before, and then the difficulty increases significantly up through Saturday when the puzzle is really hard. is a bigger puzzle, but it's like a Wednesday or Thursday difficulty, so in puzzle is accepted. It gets slotted for for particular day of the week. A when I come to edit a puzzle on average about half the closer mine very hands on editor, I can edit us go five or ten percent of the clues in Zal up to ninety to ninety five percent, depending on the puzzle makers clue writing ability. I'm looking first of all for accuracy doesn't matter how interesting you're good clues are if there is a factual Erin so I check everything that I'm not absolutely certain about then on editing for the proper level of difficulty and just freshness sense of humor clues that you haven't seen before. Clues will twist your mind in A. Fun Way. wants the puzzles are edited their typeset I. Send Them to a group of tests solace one of them. Recheck every word in fact after me. And then the puzzles go into production. Altogether they're seen by about ten other people before they appear in print, so there is virtually never an error in the crossword. Of now have to knock on wood just to make sure now, everybody's going to be looking for area. They're always these things seek through I. Think in the last. Four five mistakes. usually they're seen by away of one or two people who tend to be small mistakes. And that's about thirty two thousand clues during a year, so it's a pretty good average, but that's that's a pretty good ratio. Things slip through. I'm sure. How much time on average do you think it takes you to go through a single submission?.
