"We have rights. Just because we're in the middle of a pandemic doesn't mean Brandon Whipple can declare himself Caesar. We are citizens, not subjects. Just because this virus came from China doesn't mean the politicians can use it as a pretext to turn us into China. The trope of just shut up and wear a mask is not science ordered liberty or constitutional governments. It's what they do in North Korea. The suggestion that this is needed to protect others raises the obvious question. If me not wearing a mask transmits the virus to others who are wearing a mask. Then is that not an admission that masks do not work to stop a respiratory virus that is so microscopic. It gets through the mask. It makes no sense to suggest it doesn't penetrate the transmitters mask from inside out. From outside in. Come on. How can mask wearing work when everyone just stores them in their pockets to collect bacteria? Mask, wearing in all of the major cities from Los Angeles to Miami to New York, has been in place and followed by pressure and community shaming for months. Compliance in most of these places, has been off the charts, according to the New York Times, Yet the virus is still spreading Mohr than before the mandates. We need really debate on the effectiveness of masks the types of masks the situations in which they warn the duration of time the benchmarks that need to be met before and howto measure effectiveness and the process for propagating these rules. We are no longer 24 hours into an emergency. We are four months into this virus, and it's time to function like the Representative republic. We are To this day. There has never been a clinical study with randomized controlled trials in non health care settings that vouch Or the effectiveness of universal mask wearing in public All we have so far are anecdotes and laboratory Phil Tae shin studies not really human to human studies. Thus, we're told we're not allowed to breathe free air without a mask. No studies allowed Boss Whipple's rules, No votes, no hearings, no debates, no studies, no time limits. No performance. Best marks, no questions asked. Shut up and cover your mouth indefinitely. And don't you dare express an opposing view. Or else The question. We must ask our swells is this If our government can now mandates such a personal and disruptive lifestyle change to our bodies with assertions that contradict their own longstanding evidence from just a few months ago, and with so many unanswered questions What else can they do with us without presenting evidence or a transparent and democratic debate? It appears that my body my choice on Lee applies to murdering babies. Anyone who knowingly gives away the authority of the people to govern themselves needs to be voted out of office at the earliest opportunity. Let's keep that in mind come November 3rd..

Public health expert: 50 percent effective coronavirus vaccine would be 'better than what we have now'
"We hit five million US cases yesterday for some perspective. The first nineteen case in the United States is believed to have occurred on February six. We hit one million cases on April Twenty, eight, eighty, two days later. It then took just forty three days to hit the two million mark on June tenth. We hit the three million mark on July seven that was twenty seven days later then just sixteen days later we rich four million US cases and July twenty third and again it took us just sixteen days to hit this five million reported case number right here in the United States joining me now is Dr Tom ingles beans, the director of the Center for Security of the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health Dr Ingles. Be Welcome back to meet the press. WanNa get a little big picture here. You know last week you were you put out a lengthy list of ten recommendations. You guys didn't call it a reset, but sort of like how do we get control of this virus? Now another one of your sort of colleagues in the larger sense Michael Star home is an op Ed. He's basically calling for a reset of some sort New York Times today editorial page calling this. It feels though as public health officials are all calling for some sort of reset. Partial. lockdowns things like this and yet we are not having that conversation at all on the political side of things. Are, are we doomed to sort of live with this virus now if we're not GONNA at all look at your recommendations I DON'T THINK WE'RE DOOMED To this fate I? Think we we know what to do. Other countries have done it. I think the purpose of these resetting reports these for a kind of a reestablishment of the basics. Is that we know that another country's universal masking fiscal, distancing, avoiding large gatherings. Those kinds of things have worked. If we look at countries like Italy and Spain and France, they have a total of about seven or eight deaths today and we have thousand, but it's not magic what they did. We know what they did. So I think if we act together in national unison, we can get there and that's what the purpose of these many of these reports are I want to bring up the issue of masks there've been some people that said if we had ninety five percent compliance unmask wearing, we could get rid of we could sort of get this fires under control. Is that unrealistic and we do need to do more than just mandating masks Do. Not, alone. Not by themselves or alone the solution, but they are a critical part of it. We know that physical distancing makes a big difference. We know that large gatherings are places where super spreading events occur and people have the opportunity or the virus has the opportunity to get around quickly and for. Many people at once. So we have to do a number of things together in terms of you know simple things like diagnostic testing results coming back much more quickly. It's it's unacceptable for the country to have to have testing comeback a week or even two weeks later it's not useful at that point there's no point even doing the test. So a number of that we have to do, but they're not they're not complicated they may be hard, but we have to do them kind of in unison. And all of those, they're not hard except when you when the word politics gets involved, it makes everything a little bit harder and I wanNa keep you out of the political space here. Let me ask you a question about that scenes and to sort of set expectations doctor Fauci implied that the first vaccine that we get, he hopes it's seventy five percent effective. The FDA has said they will approve any vaccine that's at least fifty percent effective. Can you explain to the public what that means what it means and what it doesn't mean and what our expectations should be for the first vaccine Well, we know that many of the vaccines that we use are not perfect. They don't prevent every case of disease but if they prevent a substantial portion of disease than that can help us get to a point where most of us are protected, the disease can spread quickly between people anymore a concept that is called her immunity. Herd immunity doesn't mean we will won't disease anymore. It means it's not gonNA efficiently as efficiently spread in an epidemic form. and. Is there a percentage figure in your mind that you think will sort of give us a huge? Huge step in the right direction is at a vaccine that is at seventy five percent or does fifty percent do you fear that could be a false sense of hope. I think we would take fifty percent because it's fifty percent is a lot better than what we have. Now we've we've no tools to no no vaccine tools or medicine tools that we can use to slow this down. So fifty percent would be would be far better than what we have. Now of course I think we all want something that is seventy, five, eighty, five. Ninety percent effective. But we'll have to see what we get and I think for the amount of time has passed since the beginning of this pandemic to have a vaccine that's even fifty percent effective in in the coming months or the beginning of twenty twenty, one would be phenomenal. But again, we hope it's better but fifty percent would be better than what we have now. Tom ingles be from Johns, Hopkins One of our experts that we have on here regularly, really appreciate you coming on and sharing your expertise with us. Sir.

Big Tech, Antitrust, and Democracy
"I James. I'm doing. Okay. How are you? Good thanks. All Things considered I'm busy. Tell You I've complainer this on multiple guess at this point. But what's another one I feel like? Because no one is traveling or going anywhere what is usually the slowest months? August is just insane like stuff happening constantly it started off where it got very slow in March. I was walked down people don't know what to do and were nervous. I was over whelming sense of doom and the weird thing. Is Obviously, it's not that stuff has changed that much but we talked about this on the last episode people have adapted, and now they're like making up for lost I but they're just like news coming out everywhere right a no more so than in the capital. That's right. So last week last Wednesday the editor subcommittee of the Judiciary Committee in the House had a hearing with the four tuxedos Apple Google facebook and Amazon Microsoft was notable by its absence, but it was clearly a. Focus on consumer tech. In the reason I say that this was clear is not just because such. Adele wasn't there but it became pretty clear through the questioning that Tim. Cook was only they're Kinda wanted to say that they got all of them because they were not prepared to ask him questions at all. It's clear that all the work of the committee has been mostly focused on I would say first and foremost Amazon they had the most detailed stuff there they were pretty detail. About Google, they were somewhat detailed about facebook, but you could see sort of the quality of questionings really starting to come down there, and then they didn't even know what the percentages were in the APP store. You is kind of embarrassing. They would ask cook a question and let him just talk because they didn't know what to ask next wherever else interrupt because they wanted that points to make et Cetera et Cetera and I've thought that difference in the quality of questioning per company. was pretty striking. Yeah. It's interesting. The New York Times ran a tally of the questions and I thought that in itself was interesting and it looked pretty evenly spaced and then apple was dislike fifty percent of the other three frustrating in a way because obviously I've been sort of fixated on the APP store for literally since the beginning of attack relate what am I I set of articles back in two thousand thirteen was trying to understand what how is doing such a crappy job. Imagine the APP store and one of my conclusions there was there. So scarred from their near death experience in the nineties when they had to beg adobe and Microsoft to continue supporting the Max can remain viable and I wrote this is back in two thousand thirteen that they would never allow themselves to be in that position again and well. So interesting about that is the way that has manifested is that again, this is a long running things that they've really had kept productivity APPS. In particular, it's hard to make money. You can't charge upgrades is really important sort of business mile away. It's worked on other platforms white the internet which Tim Cook Pretends doesn't exist also testimony they jumped straight from brick and mortar to the APP store. There's no intervening period there where you could buy stuff on the Internet. It's funny because when you read his testimony, you don't notice until someone points out she's like Oh my word. Yeah. You just kinda skipped fifteen years of distribution. So I didn't watch it old but I did watch part of it, and the only thing that I can remember is someone was questioning him around he has complete control of which APPs and he's like I'll well, if the native APPs that's true except Web apps so think he's not to the Internet was like little buttons that you create insofar which by the way are totally handicap progressive lobster totally handicap on IOS in wipes away all their cookies and settings after a week in. Where are the interesting things about this is because apple was held captive by productivity APPs in the nineties all of their sort of onerous APP store terms in my estimation have mostly affected would be productivity APPs in your abyss situation where you get no great innovator of APPs on these platforms in part because much risk like maybe you're going to build something in apple's not gonNA prove it or there's no business model it and it just doesn't make sense to make a new sort of productivity after the most difficult in-depth after build from a physical. API's on the device or perspective and what actually has come to dominate are. All these network based APPS that are mostly API driven and what's interesting is because apple is not a social company I message notwithstanding that they kind of weren't paying attention to that and what happened was we talked about this China where we chat actually became the exact sort of dominant APP that I think the APP store was designed to limit. But because they weren't sort of paying attention, they ended up the exact same situation as a nineties is the apple as a company is much stronger than back. Then it's not even remotely comparable but the fact that we chat is more important than your phone is definitely the case you. Like Oh we trade the same well then why is it? We have a mini APP store for on purposes and no one else has allowed it like one of the most obvious examples of APPs not being treated the same and it's not true the same because we chat as more important than the IPHONE.

Elizabeth Wetmore: Valentine
"Today. I'm very pleased and excited. My favorite thing on bookworm is when I'm talking to a first novelist. And it someone whose work I have not previously known my guest on the show today is a booth wet more Beth wet more. Her book is called Valentine. It's published by Harper and it's novel. Beth. Wet more is fifty three years old and this is her first. Book, she's published many short stories in many of the best literary journals, the Kenyon, Review Colorado Review but this is her first time in hardcover. Tell me Beth what feel nights is finally see the book in hardcover. Well. It's all been a little unreal honestly. I worked on the book for a long time and I was ready to have the editor sort of wrestle out of my hands. Honestly I think if if she hadn't wrestled it out of my hands, I'd probably still be tinkering with it to tell you the truth and even now I occasionally spot a sentence or a paragraph that I think, Oh, I'd like to have a do over on that. But on the whole, it's been wonderful and surprising to me I think I. Expected The book to come out very quietly and and so it's been. Marvelous to see how many people have reacted to it in such a positive way and how meaningful it's been to some people. Yes the book has made its debut as number two when it came out on the New York Times bestseller list and it's set where Beth was born in West Texas in Odessa. Now, if you're me, you think Odessa that's near where my family come from in Russia this is Odessa in. West Texas how does it get its name? Well it depends on who you ask You know the they're part of Texas was settled pretty late in the early eighteen eighty s and depending on on what piece of local you believe it was it was named Odessa in part because of the sort of grasslands that that people said resembled the Odessa in Ukraine. And and and that's really been the most sort of certain story I've heard. No was Texas. is known for its. Economy. I'm sure most of my listeners will know this but what is an oil patch? Well. Odessa is in the Permian Basin which is about eighty, six, thousand square miles inside. So and and of course, West Texas and. is is even more vast right than the Permian basin and it's an oil and natural gas rich region of the country I read recently actually that actually until the until the pandemic, it was on pace to outpace Saudi Arabia for the biggest production in world in the next five years That's slow down and been derailed a little bit by the pandemic of course but it's so an oil patches you know a a part of the world where that is the single economy oil and natural gas. It's not a particularly pretty place in the world at least not by most people's standards I think it's beautiful. There's no other way to make a living out there other than working oil and natural gas and Odessa where I grew up on differs slightly from it sort of sister city, of Midland, which is about twenty three miles away in the sense that Odessa's a very working class town most of the people who live and work in Odessa do the. Blue collar work of the oil patch. So they work is the roughnecks and pipe lawler's and fitters and water haulers and That's still even today a pretty male dominated industry women in that part of the world tend to work in support roles as bartenders and waitresses preschool teachers, teachers, that sort of thing So that's where I grew up.
Breland Talks Country, Hip Hop And Protests
"The music video for the hit song. My truck starts off like mini country music videos, country star Sam honey with a wide brimmed hat walks through a cloud of dust. Yoke and drank my leg. Come you. Can Take Mama and Yuka small. Schools these horns you can say you hate me you. Down to my truck. Then a young black man appears wire brimmed glasses and a huge grand shoves him out of the frame. Out. At the start of this year, he was just a recent college graduate trying to break into music then truck up and the song hit number one on spotify viral fifty chart back in February. The music video now has over twenty four million views and counting religious music defies definition. He's country trap hip hop aren be and so much more, and he joins us now from his home in Nashville to reflect on his music and his life as part of our series on how artists are reimagining and reflecting the current moment in their work. Thanks so much for being here. Thank you for having such a glowing introduction to bring you with me everywhere now. Oh Yeah I'll do it. So you're a recent college Grad, writing songs trying to break down the doors of the music business, and then all of a sudden you're going viral with this country song what what was it that actually got you to try your hand at Country Music Just. Always trying to do things that I think can can push the boundaries. I don't like to feel stagnant. So this was kind of came about kind of a challenge show in the studio with with some friends of mine, and we were kind of talking about the new wave of. Country Crossover records that had been that have been coming out like Old Town road and I was just like I feel like I can make a song like that and it would be pretty dope and they were like Nah man you can't make like that and I was like, okay challenge accepted so. Just started. Working on it and was able to come up with something. I guess that that stuck with people you've mentioned other artists like a little gnaws, of course, with Old Town road We also know though about the massive debate over what country is and who country belongs to. What is country to? country to me is a genre of music that is really just defined by strong songwriting and storytelling I think anyone can can make it. I think anyone can you know their based country music stars who are from? Other countries you know between. Fine and have been there some others, and then it really just comes down to the music and then whether or not people accept you I want to deepen that a little bit though because the New York Times reports that my truck isn't really picking up steam on traditional country music stations which are known to be pretty conservative. Do you even about that? I mean it would be it would be nice to have gotten more country radio support I. Think like Sirius Xm, the highways played it a lot. But in terms of traditional country radio, I don't think we got any spends I was hoping when I put Sam Hi on the remixed that would have probably validated it a little bit but it wasn't quite enough and I I understand it though because if you listen to country radio, it's. Tends to be wide dudes over forty so. For me to be a twenty five year old black dude. I, have a song, eight hundred weights and like hip hop production on it like it would've been a lot different than what was currently being played. My thing is if all of these country music fans are these a lot of them who are under thirty for example, are also listening to like drake and Migos, and even like our day and those cat, why do they have to leave the genre to get their fix of like bars and like hard beats like I feel like? Especially, with after after my truck came out I, realized that audience needs music and I know how to make it and I can I kinda stand in my in my own lane and help carve out a sub genre of music that speaks to the millennial modern country fan

Chlo Valdary on Love & Race
"Today it's so great to have coli Valerie on the podcast after spending a year as a Bartley fellow. At The Wall Street Journal, Thou developed the theory of enchantment, an innovative framework for social emotional learning character development and interpersonal growth that uses pop culture as an educational tool in the classroom and beyond. Khloe trained around the world including in South Africa the Netherlands Germany and Israel her clients have included high school and college students, government agencies, business teams, and many more because also lectured in universities across America including Harvard Georgetown. Work has been covered in psychology today magazine and her writings have appeared in the New York Times and the Wall Street Journal coli. So so glad to finally tell you. Likewise, well, where do we begin? There so many so many potential starting points. If it's cool with you, I'd love to start with your theory of enchantment I'm enchanted with it as A. I know. But. I am enchanted with it because I. You know I have a deep interest in education and making sure that no kids fall between the cracks and I just love to hear how your program addresses some of those issues and just. Inspires you most about that work that you do? Sure. So theory of enchantment is a social emotional learning program. I've designed about a year and a half ago. And it comes out of my my desire to construct a framework to teach people how to love using the things that we already love and that we already gravitate towards. So things like pop culture for example, because I believe that there are narrative within our pop culture that teach people how to believe in their own sense of south worthiness believe in their ability to overcome obstacles to endure hardship. Until by blending those elements of pop culture that teach these lessons with ancient wisdom my theory is that you can teach people how to love themselves, and then in long run be able to get along with and love others. I'm really inspired and motivated by especially getting it in as many schools as possible but really. Young people, teenagers, and adults I'm I'm I'm really excited for for the possibility of seeing how many people become. Enamored with this approach. So how many years have you been doing that? When did you create the program? So I created it formerly a year and a half ago. Right on. So, how old are you right now and twenty, six, th moment. Cool. Yeah. So let's back up a little bit about your history. So what was your major in College? My Major was international studies with a concentration in diplomacy. Oh Wow that's gonna come in Handy now. You're applying it well. Applying it on twitter you're applying those people's finale. Try My best. It's much much needed more more people like that on social media and in the world broader. So when did you get interested in education? So what was the point you before you create this program? You're like, wow, they're really this indeed. So, basically, after I graduated graduated in two, thousand fifteen and then I moved to New York in the summer of two thousand fifteen because I got a job at the Wall Street Journal. At The Wall Street Journal for Year working on the desk and Um for nine months while I. was there I worked on a thesis that ended up being the catalyst for theory of enchantment are trying to again figure out how to create a framework for teaching people how to love within the context of conflict in diplomacy because that was my background but there was no framework that specifically explicitly laid this out like how do we get people to learn how to love there were frameworks Potter we get people to stop fighting each other, but not necessarily, you know to start loving each other. So I created a thesis came up with a theory and then lectured on that thesis for two years. And then increasingly when I would lecture get the response from parents in from people from all walks of life. Saying, Hey, this isn't just applicable. Within the context of conflict resolution is also applicable within the context of social emotional learning in the classroom with when talking about high schools we're talking about interpersonal matters when you're talking about just trying to create a society with more human flourishing in general. So you might want to consider taking what you've done and expanding upon it and building upon it and developing it into a full course. So enough people told me that and I decided to run with it.

Remember that's nearly three thousand tons of ammonium nitrate had been stored. That's a highly explosive material that's used in fertilizers and in bombs. Well, the fire turned into an explosion smaller one at first and then less than a minute after that the massive. People who manage the ammonium nitrate storage have now been placed under house arrest. The government is looking into possible negligence and they're working to figure out the exact cost.
Deutsche Bank turned over Trump financial documents to New York prosecutors
"More trouble for the president another scandal that has dogged him actually now for most of his first term, here's the headline in the Times tonight quote trump's bank was subpoenaed by New York prosecutors in criminal inquiry. Here's the nut graph of that story. Here's how it starts the Manhattan District Attorney's Office, which means state prosecutors in New York state issued the subpoena last year to Deutsche Bank, which has been Mr trump's primary lender. Since the late nineteen nineties, they are seeking financial records that he and his company provided to your bank according to people familiar with the inquiry because of. Its long-standing and multifaceted relationship with trump Deutsche Bank has been a frequent target of regulators and lawmakers digging into the president's opaque finances but the subpoena from the Office of the District Attorney appears to be the first instance of a criminal inquiry involving trump and his dealings with Deutsche to lent him in and his company more than two billion dollars over the past two decades. Here's the amazing part the part that was the sort of draw jaw-dropping reveal in this story. Quote deutschebank complied with the subpoena. Out over a period of months last year, the bank provided the prosecutor's office with detailed records including financial statements and other materials that Mr Trump provided to the bank as he sought loans according to two of the people familiar with the inquiry. The subpoena to Georgia banks saw documents on various topics related to Mr Trump and his company including any materials that might point to possible fraud according to people briefed on the subpoenas contents. The bank's cooperation with the prosecutor's office is significant because other investigations that have sought trump's financial records have been stymied by legal challenges from the president and his family. This criminal investigation from New York prosecutors initially appeared to be focused on hush money payments made in two thousand sixteen to two women who said they had affairs with Mr Trump. But in a court filing this week prosecutors in the district attorney's office cited public reports of possibly extensive and protracted criminal conduct at the trump organization and suggested they were also investigating possible crimes involving bank fraud. And Insurance Fraud. So. To be clear, this is a big deal that the New York Times is reporting tonight this is not about the subpoenas for the president's financial and tax information that were litigated up to the supreme. Court are now kicking around in the lower lower courts by the present, his lawyers seek to delay compliance with these subpoenas. What this is about is a subpoena of Deutsche Bank. which has loaned two billion dollars mysteriously to the president over his recent business career. Subpoenas to Deutsche, bank related to their dealings with the president, and these are not subpoenas that the president has successfully fended off in these tied up in court. This is a subpoena to Deutsche Bank the bank has complied with. And they have handed over all of this trump related documentation to state prosecutors were apparently pursuing a multifaceted criminal investigation of the president and his business an investigation that is not bound by the Justice Department's Ninety Day rule such as it is nor are they bound by the Justice Department's rules prohibiting the indictment of a sitting president because those rules are federal rules and these are state prosecutors? Prosecutors not answerable to attorney general the embar. Not only is it news that they are pursuing this stuff in the way that they are it is big news that in pursuing this information about the president, they got it they got their hands on this stuff from Deutsche Bank. Who Knew.

Self storage units having a tough time
"Americans love. Renting storage facilities. And it's something that the whole rest of the world shakes it's heads at because we have. Every square footage per person residential space that is the largest in the world the average size of a house has gone up so much over the last two generations even though the number of people per household has gone way down. But at the same time in addition to our places we live, we have all these self storage facilities and there are any of a number of reasons why we would have them. The industry historically has. Rented to people who are going through some kind of life change a relocation some as passed away could be a, you know a family splitting apart. There there are a number of reasons why people might rent a storage facility in addition to just having to might stuff and they store it. Well. One of my kids recently was. Considering renting a storage facility for six months and. Shopped around and found such differences from one location to another it was a stunner. And then. The places would not leave her alone. Once, she had contacted someone they were desperate. To have her rat. And we're offering all kinds of discounts and deals in free months and I was what's going on? Well. It turns out the big issue is the industry's gotten too big. According to industry data than number of storage places has gone up twenty five percent in about a ten year period and you look all around. Urban and suburban areas around the country in you see these much bigger storage facilities being built and many times at prime corners where they're visible Wada Times freeway exits, and so the industry has outgrown itself and then I I saw an eight M in the new. York Times. That Corona virus has made a difference and they don't really explain why they think corona virus has made a difference. My guess is that people are shopping less I mean one of the reasons people buy so much stuff is that we have historically had the greatest amount of retail square footage in the world three times larger per person than any other country in the developed world. So we Aben. Shopaholics, and is shared with you over the last several months. The amount of shopping doing has been going down down down. So if you have a storage facility. The you're renting at. I know it's a hassle to move your stuff. But go re shop what you're paying. You'll find potentially a much lower prices than what you're currently paying. You can go back to the people you're renting from and say, Hey, I'm going to bail on you because I found a deal. You know right down the street for half of what you're charging. And odds are they can't afford to lose you. And they'll offer you a deal to keep you
No US Open for Nadal; Olympics Re-Lived: 2004 Athens
"Fellow folks, and welcome. Once again to the tennis podcast and the latest edition of Olympics relived, we've already lived through the Olympics nine, hundred, Eighty, eight, three to the two thousand in Sydney, and we now arrive at two thousand four Athens Olympics return to it, spurs place one, hundred, four years earlier just before we get onto reliving. Olympic things a little bit of news to one since our last weekly tennis actual tennis based podcast couple of days ago. The knees we've had is the entry list is out for the US Open. And Rafael. Nadal is not on it. He has made an announcement that he will not be playing the USA Open. It is for health risk based reasons, which I think we'll. We'll respect that obviously disappointing for the tournament that that won't be their first. Grand, Slam with neither federal known adult, since Nineteen Ninety nine on the women's side nine. If the world's top turn on the entry list, it's only a number one ashburn on it. Obviously, entry list does not mean list of players that are actually definitely going to play. But it's nonetheless, you know this early stage, a bit of beast for the US Open, and the other bit of News we've had is that. As entirely expected at the Madrid Masters and premium mandatory tournament has been canceled. I. Mean the writing on the wall. That as we discussed on Monday, but it has been formally cancelled. We do understand there's a chance that Kitsch Buell, which is tournament that must get mentioned on every tennis podcast apparently. Might. Now, move. Back a week to take up that place in the calendar where Madrid. We're going to be of I said that quickly enough so that we can move onto Olympic stuff. Is Seen as possible. I mean there are a lot of good players. All over those interests, and as you say, who knows how many of them will end up playing but him and we we knew that the likelihood was the Dow wasn't gonNA play. There was maybe a little bit of doubt about that. When Madrid was canceled perhaps Nadal might have changed his mind, but you said it's at the time you felt that if it was a view on the virus itself and not wanting to travel and it's not going to change and sure enough he made it clear that it was because of his concerns over the virus, he just feels the world isn't ready for that and he's He's not comfortable to travel. I did sort of slightly Riley. Smile. When I saw the pressure relation, the US not even including the dowels name in the release, not even acknowledging that they're defending their reigning champion was not actually going to be there because of the decision he taken and yet they did mention that Roger Federer wasn't going to be there because of his injury I thought that was poor. I think just acknowledging the champion would have been a classier thing to have done, and actually I noticed in Chris. Clarity's piece overnight in the new. York Times that he spoke to the tournament Director Stacey Allaster who? took a completely different tack and pay tribute to refer and said, she looked forward to returning and I think that that is certainly the right way to of played that. But yeah. We've also seen one or two notes overnight of the protocols that the USDA plan to. Employ for covid nineteen testing, and if somebody tests positive in a team or an or apply themselves, the play will just be removed from the tournament and we'll have to isolate and. The words of James Blake really came back to me are upon reading those rules of just what it might take even for the tournaments if it had a lot of. People testing positive in having to be removed from the drawer. How many Coulda draw take you know this? This something I hadn't really considered before and if you're staying independent accommodation, so electing not to stay in the. Official bubble hotels. Then you have to pay for and be responsible for private security to monitor your bubble adherents. which is intense but space slightly reassuring. But goodness me, it's. Any ad, the question remains unanswered of of what the threshold is for that tournament. What's what stage does D stop treating individual cases and start saying as a? Hot Sports that needs to be needs to be shut down and his depressing is that. Prospect. is they they need to have a plan for that scenario?

Gertz husband Neil Boyle eventually became CEO of the family business. But in nineteen seventy, the forty seven year, old leader suffered a fatal heart attack. Suddenly Gert found herself at the helm of an eight. Hundred Thousand Dollar Company. She had no idea how Neil had run it nor how she and her son twenty, one year old, Timothy would manage. As CEO of Columbia Gert frequently encountered sexism, but she always had an acerbic comeback as the new. York Times reported Gert recalled that a businessman upon learning. She was the president exclaimed, but you're a woman her answer. You know I noticed that when I got up this morning. Still, the combination of rampant sexism in her inexperience almost killed the company by Nineteen seventy-one. Gert. Agreed to entertain an offer to purchase it. But when the buyer a man offered, only fourteen hundred dollars she custom out and slammed the door in his face wrote Doug Schnitt span who profiled her for outside magazine. Gert said for fourteen hundred dollars.

Until the day you die, she made it to the office on her ninety fifth birthday in March and was still having business discussions shortly before her death on November third according to outsides Schmidt's Pon. Gert Boyle will be remembered for many things among them, her belief which she shared often with younger women that a woman could do anything and also her conviction that older workers are assets in the workplace. Indeed, in her nineties, she wrote perhaps my presence in the office offers a message that managers liked to put older workers out to pasture. Out. To lunch.

Origin Stories: Joe Coulombes Quirky Legacy at Trader Joes
"From wondering I'm David. Brown and this is business wars daily on this Monday August third. During the pandemic, the news has been rushing by faster than a bullet train. It's easy to get caught up in the daily news overlook the big picture. So this week we're taking a little step back in looking at the origin stories of some of America's most iconic companies I in our series trader. Joe's it's founder Joe Colom died in. March, at the age of eighty nine trader Joe's of course, is the neighborhood grocery chain that transformed millions of people, shoppers, and employees alike into cult-like fans. The impact of his markets has been so significant that the Washington Post called Coloma cultural icon there's no trader Joe's near You well, let me. Step back for just a second and tell you the story. It was nineteen, sixty, seven Joe Coolum. Thirty seven had built a chain of eighteen convenience stores in California when gigantic seven eleven came along and he realized he couldn't compete according to the New York Times. The had to find something else to do one day. Kulam read that sixty percent of young people who were qualified to go to college. We're going thank you GI bill. He also read that Boeing was building a plane, the seven, thirty seven that would give more people the opportunity to travel overseas the assumed more international travel would make Americans pallets more adventurous New York Times reported. The idea for trader Joe's a store with fresh produce, sophisticated flavors and good wine affordable prices was born he opened the first one in Pasadena California that year famously Kulon conceived of Trader Joe's is a store for the quote over educated and underpaid his stores would serve budding foodies who wanted something more than they could get it typical supermarkets but who couldn't pay a fortune for it and something? More was what he built quirky stores with. South. Seas flair shelves stocked with Exotic Cheeses and gourmet foods from other countries and eventually natural foods and organic produce. He also trained cashiers to be both friendly and authentic a tradition that continues. So strongly today that following colognes death one woman tweeted name one mental health professional that could teach me as much about emotional intimacy as a trader. Joe's cashier. The hawaiian-shirted workers often seem so unusually pleasant that people ask why they seem so happy. It isn't simply good customer service training that accounts for the smile. It's no Colom also believed in treating employees well, today according to the trader Joe's claims that its workers are among the industry's best compensated employees they receive annual raises ranging from seven to ten percent health insurance starts on. Day One more than one person tweeted that trader Joe's covered health crises that other companies would likely not such as the woman who claimed that her colleague faced a two million dollar bill for brain cancer treatments.

"Editorial page as well or opinion pages well like I, don't see an incredible array of wild leftists and incredibly hardline rightwingers. They're like it seems to me to be pulling people gravitationally towards. What it uses a reasonable center now, no, I agree with you one hundred percent on on the way that Fred Hi although. He, did I think get a lot of criticism from the left for being a neo con, or for that for those pages to reflect the views of neo conservatives, which I think was unfair so I mean. Even. If you push toward the center, you're to in some ways you're going to get. You'RE GONNA get. You may get hit even harder by both sides. Let's talk about just for a moment as we wrap up here. The Philadelphia Inquirer because they're the offense was running a piece under the headline. Buildings matter to and look the point. Leave aside the headline for the moment which you know may not have been the most sensitive headline writing There was I. mean the point of the piece was there was indeed violence specially those first few. During these protests. To say that is not in any way to take away from the fact that there was legitimate outrage over what happened to George Floyd and legitimate outrage over the way African. Americans have been targeted by police, but there were I mean I live. I live in Washington that the on Sunday night a week ago. You know there was a burning. Nursery at Saint John's church. There were stores broken into not far from my home and looting that took place and I guess the concern is when the executive editor of the paper gets. Out Over perhaps infelicitous headline, the concern is that reporting core facts such as yes, there have been violence at some of these protests becomes expendable that perhaps that doesn't get reported because people are too intimidated about offending the woke brigade, so Richard totally reasonable for people to cover the idea that you can't cover the beyond vandalism at times, destruction of property, the idea that businesses and communities have no stake in the question of whether storefronts or shattered and inventory looted is wrong. It has to matter it has to be covered. It's part of the community and you see that. That not only from columnists in the Philadelphia, inquirer or stayed pillars of the establishment, but also some of the protesters themselves people who have fought for years to build up their communities to establish strong foundations on which to construct a strength particularly for people of Color, particularly for people in working class communities in neighborhoods, often ignored by politicians, they understand that the destruction of property and the the hitting businesses can have a real repercussion and last and endure, and we saw that in cities across the country in you know more severe and sustained rioting in say, nineteen, sixty eight. After the killings of the killing of Martin Luther King, for example and other places so. And other incidents I should say so. This is an important thing. They headline did suggest in the minds of reporters in the enquirer that somehow the paper was. Equating destruction of property the loss of life, but usually editors don't lose their jobs over a single mistake. Ben Bradlee fortified by Watergate. Doubt didn't lose his job over Jimmy's world in which Janet Cooke. invented. A A a a US tiny you know I think he's supposed to be seven years older something who was a heroin addict and built a huge project around this fictional person. That won a pulitzer that had to be returned about as big as a global embarrassment. A newspaper can get into Bradley. Had Reservoir of goodwill Bradley had A. You know a record to stand on? It rally also incredibly for about returning thing and and being contrite, even though its top leaders had essentially warned him ignored some warning signs that have been. Set off by some of the editors who had interacted with her on the project so I think in this case the question is, is this just some sort of French revolution where people who are being taken out to the Guillotine or You know an individual circumstances. Did people not have effectively the political capital and I don't mean ideological, but the the goodwill reservoirs of goodwill and trust within their newsrooms to survive the these controversies on this subject, and at a certain point, even beyond the merit if you can't. Read your newsrooms. It's not going to be useful for you to do it. That's different than saying that you should be fired or forced out over a single. A single mistake, the publisher Philadelphia said that she wanted to set the enquirer on a new course. Rethink the way in which the newspaper dealt with issues of race in light of the convulsions that the nation's going through for the past. You know weeks. And that probably This editor wouldn't be you know a a white male in his late fifties. I believe wouldn't be the best one to lead the paper this time well, I was GonNa say it is also the case with James Bennett who is otherwise an excellent journalist, did a terrific job editing the Atlantic magazine, and did a lot of good things at the Times magazine, but over the course of his years as editorial page editor. At The Times, there were a number of mistakes. There was Sarah Palin defamation lawsuit. There were a couple of columns by Brad Stevens that were controversial, so he may not have had the kind of certainly didn't have the kind of capital that a Ben Bradlee had. Probably is part of the story here. Cure I just think there's. A lot of this is generational journalists, instead of things evolving over time at the panel discussions that schools of journalism and public policy are sort of arguing things out in slack channels on text and on social media in real time, and you know I covered a story in Pittsburgh this week about a black reporter who was sidelined for a tweet, she did that sort of was flippant about the effect of looting in Pittsburgh comparing it to the aftermath of tailgating parties. That kind of trash the area around Kenny Chesney concerts. Pittsburgh and she was told by her. She couldn't cover the protests because she. She had shown her hand now turns out. She's the daughter of a retired State Trooper and retired probation officer, so it's hard to make the prima facie case that obviously she's pro looting, an anti law enforcement, but she's one of the very. She's one of a relatively small number of African. American journalists at the Pittsburgh Post Gazette. She was sidelined that same day. A white reporter was about a tweet. He sent out calling a man accused of looting by police. He sent out a tweet tagging and story. He wrote about this in which he called the man who had been accused a scumbag. And is that her said don't do that. We don't think that's appropriate, but he was not pulled back from covering issues, leading to protests, violence and vandalism in the wake and two days later. The Union pointed out this disparity thing. A white journalist was cautioned, but not punished. A black journalist was preventing prevented from covering issues about race and justice in her hometown. Pittsburgh and then what the newspaper decided to do to prevent the white reporter from covering the protests two minutes after the union left a meeting with top editors so. You're seeing you know that's an instance in which you know. These two journalists, one, twenty, seven, one, twenty, eight, both of them from Pittsburgh. Both of them felt free to sort of maybe show a little bit of where their heads are added a moment in a way that. Before social media, they couldn't do, but a reporters who had done so saying basically, Hey, there are times where people do violence and. y'All. Don't get that upset about it. Let's at least think about it. She was sidelined and remained sidelined a week later and I you know I, think that newsrooms are that newsroom is in tumbled as a result of this episode as well and newsrooms are kind of grappling with this issue in the leaders. Don't have control of the narrative I. Think is what I take from this rather than right or wrong is that leaders don't have control of its social media is giving an outlet for journalists in the rank and file to speak out and to find support. And I think it's very unsettling for those who seek to run these major institutions at this time. Well, it does sound like newsrooms across the board are a engulfed in tumult. Although I should probably say it's, it's virtual tumult since. Most people actually aren't in newsrooms these days, and it does make me wonder if that's a factor here. The fact is that nobody is actually sitting next to each other anymore. Talking these things out, but just hurling Bromides as we are, all want to do on social media might be contributing to it, but David I really WANNA. Thank you for your always helpful insights, and it sounds like you'll have lots of media issues to talk about on your next on point God knows. Thank you always a pleasure to join you.

"It's been asserted by the Attorney General of. Of the United States and others in the US government, but as an assertion in an op Ed, it does not strike me as it hasn't been debunked, either and I was gonna say as an assertion in an op, ed. It doesn't strike me as really much beyond what you could read in. OP EDS in the New York. Times across the board every day by their columnists and others, there are assertions made I mean as you read the cotton piece, let's take away the headline. The crudity of the in jarring nature of the headline did you find it objectionable on its face and something? You would not have run if you were in James. Bennett shoes such a good question. I would I you know. Here's what I'd say I I tend towards wanting to ventilate arguments. People are able to knock down his arguments by reading it closely I. DO think that you know the Times mistakes. Itself thinks that good news coverage of something setting it out fairly, but also setting out legal and moral than other objections, and and challenges to. It doesn't accomplish the. The job as well I did note some Michael. Powell not known as a reactionary commentator for the times, and not a right winger at now laboring in Sports, previously a columnist in the new side, you know, he said this was an embarrassing retreat from principal when the Times effectively apologized, and regretted the publication that said CJ shivers a former war correspondent for the Times A. I guess currently an investigative reporter for time. Who's himself a veteran of the US? Marine Corps said the decision to publish. This was wrong on its face and talked about what he's seen abroad when protesters face not domestic police, but military forces, trying to keep control of circumstances, and how that heightens tension, and you know he to talked about what journalists have faced. You know reported on fairly extensively as well the kinds of hostility and violence that journalists faced at the hands of police officers and law enforcement officials across the country in these recent weeks. Well beyond the Pale you know in the US It's often considered beyond the Pale to include for example, people from Hamas or leaders from Hamas in talking about what how you would deal with trying to come up with some sort of long-term peace surrounding Israel Palestine and the middle. East right in Israel. Newspapers are much more likely to publish those things. Yeah, that's within the accepted bounds of discourse. You know so I think these things are very fluid. What we saw as? was in some ways as a result of market forces, it was useful for newspapers as the number of newspapers dwindled in major cities across the country to appeal not too strong niches like cable news does now, but more blandly to a broader part of the population. So that's how impartiality was embraced by newspapers and became a journalistic ethic. It became a matter of principle, but it was really driven by market forces. You don't. Don't have to be a Marxist to see that right, so you know the things that we take as points of absolute morality and principal in our profession often evolve overtime forces that are actually apart from that so i. think that whether or not you think what Bennett was right, the clearly was strong reaction from their readership, but in this case the readership that that undermined him. What's inside the newsroom across the way? At a on the news side of the divide there, and that was a problem for Sulzberger and I think that right now. Journalists are raw and I think that they are. It's more like the seventies to me. You know people are talked about this being sixty eight, but it feels to me like the seventies where people are like, are we inventing new forms narrative or inventing new forms of what ethics mean what it needs to be an ethical journalist, and sometimes that can lead very positive results, and sometimes it can lead to chaos because. It's not clear where the lines are drawn right now and I think he's in that. You know like The Washington Post where Ben Smith, had a great column in The Times about how Marty Baron perhaps the best newspaper in the country right now nonetheless has a sort of rigid control over what's appropriate for people to say on social media it drives out some of their very talented people, and it also caused great confusion, because the editors don't always know what principles they're applying other than trying to shut people up, you know, David. You mentioned Israel. I had been thinking the same thing I was based. There was always struck by the. The vigorous debate in the newspapers and the kind of you know basically a battle of ideas, and it seems to me I guess one of the questions coming out of this episode at The Times and the other ones is that there's a danger of a chilling effect that these op. Ed Pages ought to be forums for vigorous debate in our society and I remember years ago as a young journalist, I worked for the Washington Post editorial page for the late great. Meg Greenfield and I think one of the things that she used to do. With part of the problem. is you run a piece like the cotton piece? There's no context. All you have is a piece. That's very provocative, and that is very prominent. It's the op-ed page of the New York Times. She used to run kind of point counterpoint when there was a more provocative piece of that sort, so I kind of wonder like. Because I think it would be kind of a sad thing, if opinion editors were no longer willing to run provocative pieces, so what are the kind of prescriptive things that you can do to continue running those kinds of pieces, but avoid some of the pitfalls that has you know led to? Bennett's being pushed out and I. Guess The question is. Are you worried about a? A chilling effect as a result of these kinds of decisions, Bari Weiss, who's a conservative something of a contrarian at the Times was hired as an editor, and soon became a writer on under her own name, is basically characterized this as tensions between the woke young `uns, and the more, classically liberal, forty and fifty. Something's at times, and she tributes this kind of Smothering correctness that she attributes to college campuses now I can tell you having been a former higher education, reporter, college, campuses, or clamorous paces, player, people, debate and outrage each other all the time. There may well be a left of center ISM, but it's you know they're a lot of conservative voices. They're to you in a lot of lot of clashes there. You know it's really question how times conceives of itself is. For Liberal America. Is it for all America? You know back in the day they used to have basically one conservative voice and William Safire Right, and I thought he was enormously engaging in reading with the morning lists was great, but you know he was pretty alone there for a long time and under Bennett they've tried to increase that to be honest under his predecessor. They tried to increase that, but there's always been this sort of wink till Abramson. Once said to me, you know we're not a liberal paper, but were a cosmopolitan paper. That understands the sensibility of the upper west side, and you know so. They wanted elite. They wanted bankers advertising type people, and they also wanted people who aspired to the kind of life reflected in the pages of the New York Times and the issues interested in the issues written there and so there's this kind of wink and. As I think it's easier than ever you know. The Times I think stumbles over itself not to be too explicit in going after president trump in characterizing it I think Washington Post Times harder hitting, and it's things about calling things racist calling things lives rather than evasions and yet in terms of social media. It is much more rigid about what it lets people do, and how voiced it lets people be. And you're just two different models of of an approach there each with its own problems i. do think that you know good news. Organizations allow the ventilation of a lot of different kinds of ideas from a lot of different perspectives. I do think under Fred Hi. Meg Greenfield, successor at the Washington Post I, think that is very careful, centrist editorial stance, but also by and large a fairly establishment..

"We're saying we want somebody with bayonets, putting down anything that strays over the line and lawlessness by the way sometimes involves mass protests without permits. Permits in public streets, but David, I mean you talk about readers more than ever being in the driver's seat, but I think you could also argue to some extent. Reporters inside the newsroom more than ever are in the driver's seat. If you look at this particular case and others out there and you know I think it is the case that social change is often driven by younger people and driven by generational changes, and I wonder if. If in this particular case, you know what it reflects about what's going on more generally in newsrooms out there and had a new generation of reporters kind of fueled and liberated by Social Media You have the excesses of course of the trump administration, and in some ways a rethinking or even discarding of kind of traditional standards and conventions that we've all relied on journalism, you know striving for kind of pure objectivity balance reflecting both sides both. Both side ISM becoming a bad word these days in favor of different kind of notion of truth, which is closer to the idea of taking moral stances in some cases, so is this something that you're seeing in newsrooms around the country, and is this kind of reckoning? That is taking place right now. rummy disentangle some of the important things that you're talking about here because I. Think you're onto something. I would characterize it a little differently. I would say. We moved from this notion of impartiality of objectivity. And progressive notion of about a century ago right to one I wouldn't call it to truth. I would call it to fairness, and the idea is to be fair to your readers to be fair to you. Particularly the people in subjects writing about the communities your rooted in and also to the facts and the truth, and that was the idea of fairness was a way of getting out of the pit of saying well, you know we said candidate X., said this, we said candidate. That candidate X. was actually making slanderous claims that are ungrounded fact unsupported by evidence, but we presented both sides. That is actually a journalistic failing. That is both lazy, and not you. What is the point of what we're doing? I always feel like the point of what we're doing ultimately is to enable people to act not just as consumers of news, but as citizens that they have the. I don't need to tell somebody what to vote or how to vote or what to think, but I want to tell somebody happy information the context that they can make up their own minds about what's going to best serve them their families, their communities, their nation, right and I think fairness was way of getting at that now there is I think among some journalists particularly, but not only younger journalists and idea. Even that is A. A fool's game when you were reporting an asymmetrical age, the symmetric calorie has a lot to do, but not only to do with partisan politics that is the Republican Party and the Democratic Party play by different rules. When it comes to journalism, it comes to facts and it comes to. The respected doesn't afford journalists in the role. They play in the political cycle. They're certainly extreme figures in an unscrupulous figures on the left as well. And Online, but there's a way in which people are saying, you know. Let's just get to the truth. Let's just get to what is moral, and what is true, and what is moral, and what is professionally ethical eric kind of different. And you know you can be amoral and still ethical. You can tell the story without saying this is wrong, but you can present the facts in a way that allow people to get there. And there's attention you know. I Value Opinion Journalism. It can be done well from the right and the left, but it's got to be fair to the back there. Other people who say you know we have to be clear on morality here and there are people you know. Newsroom editorial pages genuinely are run separately from newsrooms from the reporting wing of newsrooms as you guys both know in conventional legacy news outlets, and yet people at the times and people at the Philadelphia Inquirer say this is representing my brand. This is representing who I am publicly, and it's not in keeping with where I'm at. Yes, there should be dissonant voices. Yes, there should be con-. Pro and con, yes, there should be a vast rate things debated, but certain things shouldn't be amplified by the New York, times and giving credence and credibility they should be covered in the news pages, but as the. Clear violation of civil liberties that they represent whatever they have again. I think that. There's a real case to be made for what Bennett did. She has mean he has harbored the aspiration for his time at at the new. York Times of ultimately taking over for team Buckeye as the editor in chief, called the executive editor there and leading the newsroom, and he is seriously mis read the news from a number of Cajun what whatever the merits of his decisions. You have to be able to lead in those positions. Maybe bring people along to a place. They didn't initially want to go and he has failed on a number of cases to do that PG, Bird. The publishers backed him a couple of times. He just say you know finally, said you know. There was a lapse in editorial decision making here, and not for the first time I think the souls. Burgers have spent a little too much time explaining why what James Bennett did was right. To their own staffers. To the point where they ultimately felt this was a liability. Well I wasn't it wasn't helpful to his cause I don't think that he did not read the piece which he ultimately acknowledged and an editor of a section that produces a large amount of copy may not read every piece, but it is his or her responsibility to make sure that those pieces that are going to be very provocative and controversial. They read sure and look you know again. I kind of admired some of the things Bennett was doing. I think that. That it was a more dissonant, more interesting editorial page than the one he inherited by in this moment I think you're seeing in real time playing out in front of US journalist, hashing out what's accepted and what's interesting in part because social media affords more junior reporters and more rank and file, journalists, the ability to speak out publicly and to commune and share with one another where they're coming from simply because somebody has said this is the right decision doesn't even that's accepted in the same way at once was. Even reluctantly and I think that means that that it's more like almost like college faculty at Times. Let's talk about what actually happened at the time because. I, think you alluded to this before Sulzberger the publisher at first defended Bennett and defended the decision to run the op-ed, and then there's this extraordinary blowback from the news room and reporters and editors are complaining and. Raising their objections to it and Sulzberger reverses himself. I mean it seems a little like a mutiny of a of a sword, in which you know, the rank and file got to dictate to the brass what they should do and I'm just you know your first and foremost a reporter on these things give us insight into how that reversal by Seoul's Burger came about. My understanding is that he didn't know originally that Bennett hadn't read it. And that ultimately he concluded or said he concluded that the process to get it on wine was a little flap dash. This was initially scheduled to run in the Sunday paper you know. The Review Section is published in advance of Sunday, but. They didn't have to get it up Wednesday at the time they did. They could have taken a little more time with that, too. that it out. The fact that some of his assertions were challenged on a factual basis by reporters enabled grapple hold for critics to try to tear it down. Let me just say this I thought. Rich lowry had very interesting piece in the back and forth, and we've allred columns in the New York Times elsewhere that make bold assertions that are perfectly or even ordeal agree well backed up facts so yeah. I was just going to say I. Mean You know one of the factual assertions that the editor's note that they appended to it challenged. Was that Khadr as of left wing? Radicals like Antifa were contributing to the violence. Now that has not been substantiated..

We now have with US David Folkenflik. The media correspondent for NPR and the host of on point in NPR, show on the media David, welcome to skulduggery a great to join you guys again so quite a few days in the media world, the resignation of James Bennett The New York, times, editorial page, editor and Stan wish now ski the executive editor of The Philadelphia Inquirer both basically forced out. It seems because of controversial headlines, and in Mr Bennett Gaze at the New York Times and OP. Ed that ran under one of those headlines from Tom Cotton the Republican senator. Senator of Arkansas this seems to US pretty extraordinary. I can't remember too high level resignations coming back to back over pretty similar issues. What do you make them yet? Quite a week tour having accusing it's it's quite a year. We're having this week. It does seem like a moment. It's a moment where these prominent us rooms are grappling in a different way with some of the same issues that we're seeing. Play out at so many of these protested cities and communities across the country are black lives are black sensibilities, being taken as seriously as those of their white counterparts. Rethinking intently about the choices we're making editorial he as journalists, and about not only the good and use that they can have in serve, but the harm that they can do. These are the kinds of questions I'm hearing from African American journalist, those newsrooms and others including my own I think that what you're seeing is a journalistic judgments being called into question. Not, simply about whether or not, they were the right calls, but whether they reflect a blindness or deafness to the way, life is lived for people who aren't white and aren't at the top echelons, the top elite positions running these institutions and I think you know there's been a kind of resentment burgling for a while for for decades, probably as long as there have been African Americans in newsrooms, but about. About issues very closely related to the ones we see, play out, and some of them have to do with who gets to decide what gets covered and who gets to decide how the things that do get covered, get covered, and that may seem well journalism, and that's true James Bennett ran this piece called. Send in the troops by Arkansas Republican Senator Tom Cotton, you know a guy with sort of A. I think it's fair to say a bit of an authoritarian streak when it comes to what he would characterize as law and order, he wanted the president to invoke a little, known and little used statute to send in military troops, even if over the objection of governors and mayors to quell civil unrest, he framed it as going after looters, and seemingly drawing distinctions between leaders and protesters, but as we know sometimes mass protests, episodes of violence occurred that don't involve the vast majority of protesters and yet if you're militarizing those interactions between protesters and and looters and law enforcement, those distinctions are. Are GonNA. Get Lost but David, isn't it? This is the editorial page of the new. York Times, and isn't it one mission of editorial pages to reflect a diversity of viewpoints, not just ones that stroke the sensibilities of the majority of readers, but viewpoints that challenge them, and it seems to me. That's what basically the Times was doing here running a piece by a sitting united. States senator that reflected a viewpoint of many in the White House many at the highest levels of the US government, and you know we shouldn't. Readers want to be exposed and understand what that viewpoint is. Something very interesting I don't think anything I've said necessarily means that there isn't a rationale to running it. But I'm describing what journalists themselves are. Feeling and their reaction to it, I think part of it is generational, I think people under the age of forty under the age of thirty eight field bit differently than people who have been in newsrooms for decades I think some of it reflects you know a racial divide in terms of experience of how life is lived. That is not uniform in either direction and I do think that you know part of the original mandate of the Times opinion page, which really helped introduce phenomenon to American print journalism was look. We have aditorial that reflect the opinion. Opinion of our owners, or at least as reflected by people, they designate to write an official editorial position by the newspaper, but we are going to expand the range of opinions presented to our readers as a way of fostering debate, embracing the marketplace of ideas, which doesn't say that idea just dominates. It says that ideas are tested by often country, thinking and the Times editorial answered self is very much against the idea of militarising the law enforcement response to figuring out how to handle this this wave of protests, and at times eruption of violence in looting. And vandalism and and writing, but all of this is true, and James Bennett was an interesting and sometimes controversial figure he came to the from the Atlantic four years ago to the times and I think did an impressive job of expanding the range of opinions presented by The Times both on the right, and on the left with some really disparate interesting thinkers, as they broadly expanded the number of folks who they published online, but you hit on a really interesting point you said. Shouldn't readers want this well? Readers are now much more than in the driver's seat at the New York Times and this is increasingly true at other publications as advertising withers right. Paying subscribers are increasingly important to newspapers. I can't underscore this enough and digital subscriptions for the Times approve stratospheric. They've never had despite what hear from. The president never had more subscribers in existence since eighteen fifty one times was founded and digital subscriptions has really propelled that it is the way to add readers at very minimal cost, and what the readership expect is increasingly important to what people who are running the news reports and the editorial sections decide to do because if you lose those digital subscribers, you lose the ability to keep adding journalists I mean they now have like seventeen hundred journalists more than ever before at the Times at a time when newspapers generally are. Watching their finances go down the drain, so the readers are actually very important expectation of what the time is, maybe a little different than what you've said. Tom Cotton is not just conservative Tom Cotton, saying the PE- your sons and daughters, your friends and neighbors, you people who paid or read us..

About some of us and specifically the ways in which theater itself is shaped by the very thing on which it comments and reflects on the panel three arts journalists from the New York Times theater editor Scott Heller Culture reporter Kara Buckley and theater critic Jesse Green. The moderator is ideas producer. Philip were calling this program to politics. Fbi thank you. And I want to begin by saying what a wonderful privilege. It is to be here today. As a producer with ideas to acknowledge the fact that we've had such a wonderful relationship with the Stratford Festival for many years now but particularly over the last seven years. We've been recording events like this and broadcasting them. Today's session is about theater in politics. I remember as a teenager growing up in Dublin and very entrenched with theater. There was a touring production of the. Black Light Theatre. Prague came through at a time when the political scene Czechoslovakia was very fraught. They were interviewed in one of the local papers and they were asked about. What's the relationship between what you're doing? The horrible very conflicted politics of your country and the artistic director had a very short answer. He said all artists political. I would start with this idea of all art being political and specifically all theater art. What specifically do you think it is about theater? That makes it such a rich and fertile ground for the discussion of big political questions. And let's start with you. Scott well I would frame it slightly differently in that whether or not. You're talking about big political questions. I think that what makes theatre inherently political is that it's an art of conversation and it's an art of being in a room watching people talk to each other and work issues out and that is inherently political and. I think that that's why unlike digital forms or other visual art forms. There's something small P. political about being involved in watching theater that leads you to think big P. politically in that in that the art of theater is the art of people negotiating and that to me therefore immediately leads to sort of larger ways to think about about politics people figuring out to understand each other get along and come to some sort of sense of calm agreement on common mission and what the kind of values of community or society are. I think that's theater at its best helps both reflect back and almost model how that can be done. That's I think fundamentally why people in a room watching other people work issues out is mixed theater. One of the most powerful and exciting political art forms Carlot's past to so my coverage has been primarily film. So I'm going to just sort of shift a little too that I think one of the things about film that can be so powerful as especially these days is it so like he audience sitting together in Durkan's place having a common experience and what happens on that screen is so important for the audience in terms of how they see themselves and how they relate and for me you know I remember in covering film seeing film Meryl Streep About The suffragettes and I'd never seen so many women on screen doing smart political things that I was kind of taken aback. And that that it was I think it was two thousand and thirteen or fourteen when that came out and that it took to that time for me to just have that experience as a woman to speak to me the need for representation which is political and having different voices because the effect on the audience is profound. When you see yourself and don't see yourself being reflected back to you by your culture and it's very profound on young people growing up and this is maybe a top down way of looking at it in terms of the performing arts. What they mean but I just think of like studies out there like young people watching television so when you expose young children to television the the youngsters who feel best about themselves or white boys and then okay about themselves or white girls and then black roles and black boys feel the worst about themselves but watching television so to me. That's a very it just shows how important it is to have this representation onscreen and that's something. I look at it my cover tonight. Think about a lot in terms of. Who's creating this content and who's allowed in the room to do it. I was going to speak to the liveliness of live theatre particularly as opposed to film. There isn't an art form that we have that is as immediate end as public at the same time. The you are adding a movie theater. You're sitting next to the other people who are watching. But you're also within spitting distance of literally of the WHO are perhaps enunciating to clearly and the there is a feedback loop between the players and the audience that does not exist in film and I find that very powerful powerful as we move into a more political theater once again your friend who announced that all theater was political. Had Not yet taken into account boards of directors and a sensors in some.

There are definitely points when you'd have been wrong but in general that's how it's worked out. The name of the book is Golden. Gate's fighting for Housing America. The author Connor Dougherty. Thanks so much connor. Thank you and now the Spiel man. Does THE NEW YORK. Times hate west side story when producer Scott Rudin announced. He was bringing the Leonard Bernstein and lyricist Stephen Sondheim musical Broadway in a new production directed by Ivan vanhove. You figure that everyone in the Times would give big cheer but everyone. There gave a huge sneer. Could it be yes? It could a new production. That's not very good but the thing is it is pretty good. According to most people have seen it other than New York Times not everyone but man does the times hated. I mean the New York Daily News called the show a gripping west side that you watch with both appreciation for the power of the young in love and a profound sense of all American doom. This is what Broadway can do when it focuses relentlessly in how it wants to make its audience feel the La Times said west side story blast back to Broadway kinetic bloody and modern to the core entertainment weekly gave it a b but the times critic Ben Brantley ripped it which is fine others did too. Anyway there's a new Spielberg movie coming out so if a show like this will give sorrow. You'll meet another one tomorrow. But it wasn't just the critic the main Broadway critic his appraisal. The new show has been subject to a torrent of negative coverage rotten reviews and outraged op eds. They've written to stories about the protests outside the theater aimed at the productions Bernardo Amare Roma. Sorry Roms are. When with the New York City ballet received naked photos of a company members? Girlfriend The New York Times ran and OP ED.

Reinforce America's colonizing power to determine who Puerto Ricans get to be the Times Ran Brenton's main review calling the show a curiously unaffected reimagining of a watershed musical. And then it keeps. The drubbing wasn't complete and from all corners. They ran a dance specific review by Jia corless which decried the productions dancing as operating quote to varying degrees like wallpaper. Choreography doesn't make this west side story. Breathe there are other questionable moments. The review goes on as when the sharks jets position themselves on either side of Maria. Tony to pull them apart after the couple meets the gym it's an image embarrassingly more suited to an instagram post which is sad but fitting. This is an instagram show. The review which actually was I liked it was an insightful piece of criticism but I did think it also trying to start a rumble with a few of the other times critics. Who As documented? Load the show for other reasons. Jia Cordless wrote the production seems to be aiming for that cheesiest of words gritty cut to the Brantley review the irrepressible iconoclast van. Hove it was said would be taking a grittier roller approach. He wrote Gritty cheesy gritty. That's not witty. But shitty at you right by the way that diddy I feel pretty is not in this version of the musical. The opinion of the New York Times is obviously vital to a Broadway show so important that the publicity machine for this west side story took a straight news article written about the show and cobbled together a Frankenstein's monster of disconnected thoughts than bought a print ad which gave the impression that the New York Times said the show was quote gravity defying Daesh uncompromising passionate and beautiful. Some of those words are actually in many cases. Variations of those words did appear in the original times article but they were not applied to the show or the quality of the show itself. That ad did run in the New York Times lying about the New York Times and today the New York Times announced it was pulling that ad I guess. The producers of the show were desperate to see something less than scathing about their product in the paper of record and if they had to buy their way in with lies well they still thought there is a place for us. I'm not sure what's really happening with this. One Institution The New York Times on the corner of Eighth Avenue and West Fortieth and this other institution currently playing on the corner of Broadway and West fifty third. Is it a turf. War Isn't a culture clash. All I know is there seems to be a lot more to this west side story and that's it for today's show. Priscilla lobby is the associate producer of the gist.

"Dreams is a sportsbook. But it's set against the backdrop up of unique part of the world the sprawling Navajo reservation in northern Arizona were basketball has long played an outsize Role Canyon Dreams James a basketball season on the Navajo nation has just been published and it is a pleasure to welcome to the sporting life. Michael Powell Michael. Thank you for being with us. Oh sure yeah my pleasure why this book I mean Your New York sports writer your New York Guy. You spend a lot of time covering national sports for the Times Times but around the New York locked rooms and club houses and stadiums This is farther afield. This definitely further. Afield feel this is about when you're on the Navajo reservation which is enormous. It's like the size of it not like the size. It is the size of West Virginia Do you feel as far as far away as you can get in the United States And it's you know I think would appeal to me was kind of precisely that I mean you know you had. This was a place where you know some very very American themes Play out. I mean you know. Do you stay at home. Do you go that tension which is felt profoundly family there The style of ball. which is you know in a strange way very kind of ood Koran? I mean they play the sort of if you will kind kind of a golden state you know Old Phoenix Suns style of play very reasonable. This incredibly fast paced sport. That goes back doc. I mean they've been playing this for well over a hundred years And it is absolutely the passion of the place I mean. It's it's you know you go. Chile is a town where I was based of thirty five hundred and if it was any kind of a big game they would have five thousand fans there at night I mean it's just You know it's a passion play for the for the kids the adults everybody. We're seeking with Michael Powell. The New York Times about his new Book Canyon Dreams Basketball Season on the Navajo nation. And you describe in the book. the style of basketball that is played played the passion for the game there. Why does basketball means so much on the seventeen million acre reservation? You know I think a lot of it. His sort of rooted in culture there I mean they have a very very communal culture With these kind of you know very the big extended families plans and the great emphasis in res- ball is on working. You know the sort of working as a unit running and running and running and running also An enormous part of actually all southwestern Indian cultures. I mean it was in their time before the horse way they got around to this day there the runners for me the Navajo Hopi any of the reservations reservations down there always rank among the very top distance runners in those states and sometimes the nation so it kind of combines those the two passions and they were also forced By the Bureau of Indian affairs this was you know fifty sixty years ago how they were forced to go to these boarding schools Far Far away from their families where they were refused the ability to speak Navajo. They literally really have their mouths washed out with soap in an in the learned basketball and in a weird way. We're not in a weird way. In sort of moving wave. They turned basketball into kind of their own cultural expression when we do stories when you write a book about Any Indian reservation. There is a legacy there The history of course of what what happened. Native Americans over the course of hundreds of years for the expansion of The American footprint the United States footprint. Well how does the legacy how do we. How did you feel and experience that legacy covering life on this reservation? I mean what's the history history is very much alive there And people know I mean they know the story of their fight against Kit Carson and you know the American military you know the army army They know their resistance. They were forced into war in March off. I mean all and then went through a a you know a tough hard sad but ultimately successful fight to get it back in all of that is very alive I mean you walk up canyons with Navajos and they will you know they'll play out. You know the sites of Ancient Bat battles against I you know the Americans and where they hid and all this sort of thing at the same time. They're an interesting way. I mean they're very proud. Roud Americans right. I mean they they sign up for the military at a rate well beyond you know the average American American I mean the percentage of them do that And they take a lot of you know kind of pride and they're both Navajos Hose in Americans and this is an American story Like a cliche. I mean this would come up a lot in talking talking so it's an interesting kind of duality that that you hear. I mean there's a real say just a real awareness of the you you know kind of a brutal aspect of their collision With our you know expansionist culture and you. It's actually the other thing is that it's playing out in ways. That are discomforting to them to this day when I was there twenty five years ago there was no TV. You you know there was only Navajo language radio Now of course they have. Everybody has a cell phone. Everybody has everybody but many any kids. Have you know Internet access. And that's the way in which the kind of broader culture now like a Su- NAMI is kinda pushing in washing over them And if you WANNA messing with you know kind of you know longtime I'm kind of cultural aspects of their wife In their language is you know that's very real and they're all kind of struggling lingw- that whether it's in a you know you know in Kuwait way or only in ways that they'll talk about with you so it's a complicated time to be there right right now. We're speaking with Michael Powell of the New York Times about his new Book Canyon Dreams of Basketball Season on the Navajo nation and as a journalist and and this is this is what you do this. What you've done so well for so long? But how do you approach going into a place you know a as we you know we sometimes say parachuting in spending a good deal time there but a limited amount of time in the grand scheme of things then coming away writing a book about an entire culture how how do you. How do you get comfortable enough In that situation nation to do what you've done which produced remarkable book but but still one coming from someone outside that culture. Sure that's a great question. I mean it's worn warn that I assume all of us right when we do these sorts of books you wrestle with and I mean you know I think one thing thing I try to do is tell the stories as much as possible through you know the voices of the people. I'm talking to you. Try to find people people and I did you know who were very inter- from medicine men to the Athletic Director of the coach who we understand that that culture and frankly lean heavily on them and then the other is going there. Twenty five years ago my wife had worked there a couple of months as a A midwife at the Indian Health Service Hospital and you know the place really kind of gotten in the very best sense of the word Kinda crawled under our skin. You know sort of remained with us. I've always wanted to go back there and I ahead done several stories and a lot of it you know this was just you know getting there in like slowing down you know my Anglo reporter mind long enough to just kind of sit with it right. Give people time to get used to me to get comfortable that I'm not it just parachuting in and I'm not GonNa you know get a quick take split In trying to get you know as I did as people were incredibly we generous so they invited me either. You know family cookouts and this you know where you could really just have a chance to talk. And I'm to watch and tried to go to ceremonies where I could and you just but having said all of that I mean I would never are present myself as you know an expert in that culture. I was you know I had the privilege of being. Guess I guess there and observing and I hope you know getting it a certain truth there but I mean you know inevitably. I'm not not you know I'm not Navajo. He ease is basketball. I it I know this analogy has been made by others Talking about basketball on reservations and And about your book is basketball For the Navajo reservation. What football is in western Pennsylvania? SELENA or in Texas. Is it the same Does it occupy the same place I made it. Is You know it's funny. I read Ed of course because singers. Great Book Friday Night Lights this it is. I mean it basketball occupies the same in fact actually as one assistant coach said to me the biggest you know one of the five big sports on Navajo and he said there Basketball Basketball Basketball Basketball Rodeo or Rodeo Rhodium radio basketball and you know they're just yes. I mean it is just us you'll sit. I mean it was kind of funny. It's sit in the stands you know. I talked to grandmothers grandfathers. Who A had? Both both quite all played for teams be. Had this really sophisticated sense of you know basketball. I mean they talk about having watched Bill Walton. You Know Cowan's play and and they would you know the the stuff they would yell at the kids was like you know settle you know settle low. Pick it it was. It was pretty sophisticated stuff. It wasn't just go go. Wild cats No it's it's a it is really a passion play on the reservation. Severi Michael Powell's new book is Canyon Dreams a basketball season on the Navajo nation. And it's clearly obviously about much more than basketball Michael. Thank you so much for joining us in discussing this German appreciated.

"Welcome back to debate night on CNN just moments ago the Democratic presidential hopefuls headed toward the debate stage here at Audubon universe city in Westerville Ohio outside Columbus Twelve Democratic candidates will soon take their podiums the most ever onstage at once in the history of man kind the focus tonight will be on Joe Biden Elizabeth Warren and all likelihood but it may also be the last chance for other candidates to get a moment in propel their candidacies let's talk more about this with our experts and Kirstin somebody we haven't really spoken about yet is the woman on the right side of the screen there Senator Kamala Harris who had a good first debate showing and his kind of stuck at four percent in the polls she's kind of faded and I think that you know she she came out with a big bang he had that moment with Biden and she seemed like she was on the rise and and she's she's sort of sputtered out so I think tonight is an opportunity for her to try to get back in the game and she's already qualified for the November debate so she doesn't have to do anything to radical because it's probably going to get winnow down there's people there's people on that stage at are in a more desperate position I'm who haven't qualified who who may go for this sort of kamikaze attacks because it's their only chance but I think that she needs to have good strong debate performance tonight and van just because people are probably wondering who were the four that haven't qualified they are Senator Amy Klobuchar Beto O'Rourke Secretary Houlihan Castro and congresswoman Tulsi they have not yet qualified for the November debate according to the rules and regulations set up by the Democratic Party this is the biggest musical chairs game with their life persecutor what happened to her in one of the debates she got some incoming she didn't know how to handle Tulsi Gabbard Tulsi Gabbard brought the incoming biden the incoming and she looked like she maybe had a class jaw not that you think you're surprised that they're not doing better I'm surprised that Kamala isn't doing better I think she's run a very strong campaign she's run into some really odd news cycle headwinds she spent a week having to answer for something at her husband's law firm he wasn't even involved in I don't think a lot of male candidates have to deal with things like that worried about some attacks from these folks on the sides maybe backfiring I saw a something Buddha judge just this week where he said Elizabeth Warren can't win based on pocket change and that struck me if you want to go after her for Medicare for all and have that policy fight that's one thing but pocket change those are real people this this democratic debate this campaign is being fueled by independent individual donors and we're still at the point where people are donating to multiple candidates just to keep them in a race he might be insulting his own donors with that so I think if he comes at it with specially on a day that she released her get big money out of politics plan which was not an accident that happened today I think she's hoping that he comes for her runs already though acknowledged his point because she said she will take large nations in the general election so in since she is confirmed his theory on I think being as dismissive as he was I think can be a really big mistake and if he does it on this stage in front of everybody I don't know what's going on I think there was something a little petty about his remarks there I think this was in an interview he was with the Peter Hamby I think the problem that has is Sergiy Buddha just having is that he's trying to find himself now of vis-a-vis Elizabeth Warren what is he bringing to the stage on his own Elizabeth Warren has been successful by defining in what her issues are giving people a sense of what an Elizabeth Warren Presidency would be right big bold vision for the country p Buddha is running on his personality and I like he's got to add more can he can talk about you know we haven't talked about foreign policy that's clearly something that problem we'll be raised tonight and Buddha judge has a has a story to tell as a veteran and he has a lot of credibility on that front one I had first thing Tom Steyer is on this day multimillionaire multi millionaire billionaire bill on the stage for the first time even heard from him will he come out of the box going on the attack say against Joe Biden why not by the way a multimillionaire by the time he stops Yeah I was just projecting in the future let's talk about the foreign policy angle for one second because it it hasn't been a major part of any of the debates in front of voters minds but with what's going on right now in in Syria and Turkey it might be a big topic tonight as this slaughter goes on things get worse and worse above Tulsi Gabbard and Mayor Pete Buddha judge have nick perspective they are the generation that carried that weight of these forever veteran both embedded but they would never have handled it this way and so I think that there is something that he can say on that I also I agree with you anybody who comes at Elizabeth Warren you better be ready to see your head coming back at you however he has a principal difference with her if she he is GonNa continue to hug a Bernie Sanders Medicare for all position which is you cannot have private insurance you've got to be on the government program I don't think that's a good Pete could flush out they listen you can't have it both ways you can't keep tap dancing and kind of be with burning when you want you and not are you are you going to force everybody you're not data confrontation I would love to see because that you've got an extraordinary moderate and extraordinary progressive on the issue that matters Lemme Lemme say this if he doesn't do it he is worked because he has signaled so profoundly that this was an exchange he was eager to have and if he can't find it in himself to have that exchange then he's not the Alpha that you have to be to be a candidates a big test for him and cares for one thing that's also interesting as Tulsi Gabbard I suspect we'll talk about how she wants to end ever wars and TV's not in favor of regime change wars and she'll try to distinguish herself that way from the rest of the democratic pack which which has supported the war in Afghan this Dan has supported other wars Joe Biden voted for the war in Iraq but also she has to be careful about drawing too much attention to her position on Syria because it's actually somewhat problematic Ed what do you think about Tulsi Gabbard on foreign policy. You're going to be able to thread that needle no I think this is the absolute worst possible foreign policy conflict for her to be dealing with yes veteran she should be able to talk about other things when you're talking about Syria she's met with Assad against US advice it's hard to get out of that we'll see what happens I'm sure it's GonNa come up in conversation because obviously what's going on right now in Syria let's go down now to the stage where my colleague Anderson Cooper is about to introduce the candidates.

"Good evening and welcome to our viewers in the United States and around the world we're just moments away from the C. N. N. New York Times Democratic presidential debate. I'm Jake Tapper along with Chris Cuomo this is what is quite literally the field of candidates on a debate stage ever in American political history here in Audubon University in Westerville Ohio just outside Mambas Jake great to be here with you I don doesn't Democratic presidential candidates are here they've been streaming in over the last hour or so some with their closest friend ends and advisors in tow I'm coming to you from the proverbial spin room as the candidates in their teams put the finishing touches on their game plans for this critical night in the two thousand twenty right this Chris is it there's there's no night to know undercard debate no second-stage that's true and you know we'll probably never see this again in this election it's likely that up to three of these people that you see at twelve dozen Democrats up there they may not make the next round but the big story is going to be centerstage Joe Biden and Elizabeth warn sure they're going to be flanked by other candidates this may be that last chance to make an impact but when you watch those two can only be one number one so how are they going to deal with attacks on them whom will they target and how and of course there's a lot of news since they last debated Jake you know obviously we have a formal impeachment inquiry into the incident his personal attorney is under criminal investigation stemming from that White House release of a rough transcript of a call between our president and Ukraine's leader where the president asks for saver and talks about investigating his political rival who of course is on the stage Jake so it's a big deal and they're big stakes especially in the middle of that stage also the first time that there'll be a debate since the president decided to pull troops out of northern Syria but there's a lot to talk about let's discuss it right now with with my team what are you looking for tonight. The what is the most important thing for viewers the tuning in to keep an eye on a lot of folks on that stage the dynamics of this race exchange you've seen Warren ascendant she's essentially the CO front runner here I think she is going to have a lot of folks coming at her who comes at our easy going to be biding his folks are suggesting that maybe maybe not they're not going to necessarily attack are they do want to draw the contrast in terms of what he would do with healthcare what she would do with healthcare and then Opel's undercard folks right who might not make it to the next stage somebody like Tulsi Gabbard who's proven to be a bit of a wild car in previous debates what does she do how do they get in the mix how do they break through this pack of twelve and what is born look like the Senate also Joe Biden he's been sort of average at these debates weren't as much better debater how does he bring his a game something we haven't quite seen from him yet maybe he does it he's obviously under a lot of scrutiny what happened with Ukraine and seen a warrant in some ways a lap him at this point in some of these polls and David Hunter Biden the vice president former vice president's son almost like the thirteenth person on the stage and to be clear president trump and his team have lied significantly about Joe Biden and the sun Hunter Biden the president's conduct in terms of pushing asking other countries to investigate the Biden's has been deemed impeachable or at least enough for impeachment inquiry but beyond that there is also this question here is a question about Hunter Biden what he was doing and whether it was appropriate for him to be on the payroll of this mccranie energy company while his father was vice president and had the Ukraine Portfolio for the administration he said this morning that he he thought maybe he made an error in judgment by Hunter Biden Joe Biden hasn't given any quarter on this he said my son did nothing wrong but in my astray Shin he won't have any so it the the point I guess is he's done nothing wrong but he won't do it again right but one of the things when I asked US caboodle judge about this on Sunday Gloria Borger the first thing he did was defend Joe Biden and start going after president trump and president trump's children I think you're going to hear a lot of that on the stage some of them on the campaign trail have said we won't have our children serving in our administration but Joe Biden has said that as well now I think given the opportunity to take on trump versus Joe Biden on this issue and the conspiracy theories that are being fed by the trump campaign. Yeah I think they're going to do that one thing I want to say is I think we need to look at Bernie Sanders Tonight because Elizabeth Warren has risen and he's declined he's had a heart attack I think he has to look as vigorous as his looked at the last debates and show show voters that he's okay and I'm wondering whether in fact he will take on Warren he did it a little bit earlier this week where he said she said she's a capitalist ruin through Bates debate stage in the history of man as far as we go we had eleven and two thousand fifteen this is well one more three hours that is a long time for a twenty year old to stand on a stage and be deaf than answer questions much less somebody who just had a heart procedure because he suffered a heart attack Louis and you have a lot of candidates who might be trying to make breakout moments it's a very stressful situation I wouldn't want to be Bernie Sanders his wife right now watching this shoes I just hope that that he's that he's doing what we all hope he does tonight the other new thing about tonight is that we are having a debate while president is impeachment inquiry that has also never happened before in the history of man and a lot of these candidates came out really strong on impeachment very early didn't they were bowled they understood than Castro was born with second yeah was out there booker was out there this week so my question is the other candidates use that against Biden he waited until Congress public opinion fifty percent of independence and like a quarter of Republicans said it was okay before he said the president ought to be impeached so do they use that as a wedge issue like van the fact that an impeachment inquiry is going on right now does that mean do you think that Democrats should talk a lot about that and a lot about donald trump in their view he's unsuitable or more should they follow the example that you were telling me about which is you go out and talk about talk to voters all the time and they don't bring up right impeachment with you it really doesn't come up they've gotta talk about they've got to deal with it but I think that if they are thinking about the voters at the youngest look the question does Bernie still have his bark and Pete have a bite is going to do anything to separate himself this should be right Syria he is a veteran he he he can own that issue Tulsi Gabbard camp but he can also he has a big difference of opinion Elizabeth born on Medicare for all he said Medicare for all who wanted don't make people go on it if he does not find a way tonight to stop being the puppy dog and becoming attack dog I don't understand this strategy do agree with accuracy do you think that people judge needs to step up and be more aggressive he could stand me to be a lot more aggressive and this is really his opportunity to do it I think and if he doesn't do tonight is probably not going to happen and so I would expect to see a lot of around the Medicare for all that's that's really where the agreement is GonNa come between Warren Sanders and the rest of the people on the stage and that's where they can have a clarifying moment with them especially you know go after Warren now really a lot of people weren't going after her I think everyone understood that she was ascendant but now she really is a top two candidate and so I think it'll be interesting to see anybody can land a punch on her she is just so data such death debater how do you go after the this is a difficult thing in the dynamics of politics how do you go after a a woman candidate that can be dicey for a male candidate he comes across my Rick Lazio going after Hillary Clinton Donald Trump going after Hillary Clinton there's ask John Delaney went after Elizabeth Warren and she left him by the road so I think she's very equipped to provider she's the most deft debater on the stage in one of the reasons people haven't gone after her is because they're a little worried about tangling with her but she's the front row under now and unless they want to just spew strewn rose petals in front of her toward the nomination they better start drawing those distinct you've got to care for the the listen on Medicare for all she has played a cagey game she said I'm with Bernie she has a plan for every single problem but the one that's most for paramount in people's uh-huh healthcare my view is she's holding back trying to consolidate the left and then she will have a more nuanced healthcare plan but she she's going to be pressed on that tonight I think yeah who doesn't obviously I mean sanders has been doing that a bit Pete Buddha judge has been doing that a bit as well can he actually bring the other thing is who who kind of comes to her aid on between those folks so it'll be really interesting Biden could take her own let's turn our attention right now back to the stage where the debate is going to be playing out at the top of the hour and ladies and gentlemen

"Thomas jefferson of course is deeply aware of the hypocrisy and aware of criticism of the hypocrisy so as he's drafting the declaration he includes a passage in there where actually blames the king of finland for introducing slavery into the colonies he'd call slavery a crime and he says that the king of england committed this crime but that's not our fault. It was not are are doing this is just one more thing that the king of england did to wrong us so he brings this document to the continental congress and and it doesn't take long before delegates from the carolinas and from georgia look at that language about slavery and one can imagine they said what the hell are you doing and they say that there is no way that they're going to sign this document as long as that passage about slavery remains and so it is struck and the thirteen colonies signed the declaration in the declaration goes out into the world without mentioning slavery at all and we start the revolutionary war somehow miraculously these thirteen scrappy colonies colonies managed to defeat one of the most powerful empires in the world and we become a new nation and silicon is gathering they try to figure out the language it they are going to create in the founding document that we of course come to know as the constitution but now they have a problem they're trying create a new one that they believe will be defined <unk> by freedom this country that was going to be based on individual rights on a government of the people for the people and by the people but this was also a place at this time was still practicing the institution of slavery and so the colonists have a choice to make aac. Are they going to be the country of their ideals. The ideals that they were putting to paper a country based on the idea that all men were created created equal and if they were going to be that country then they were going to have to abolish the toossion of slavery or are they going to be sweated to the institution of slavery because they depended so heavily on the wealth that was being generated from it and that case they can't really write the document that they want to right and so what they do is they decided they're going to try to have it both ways and they baked that contradiction right into the constitution both codifying and protecting the institution of slavery but never actually mentioning the word and so they have written what is perhaps the most radical constitution in the world and from the beginning. They knew they were going to violate. It's smells these sancho principals. They call this new country democracy but it wasn't one <music>.

"To this particular this particular graphic on the cover of the New York Times, and the article itself is incredibly stupid. The article itself is basically about how he watched some videos in two other videos which led him to other videos, which led him to become a trad Khan, and then people were upset at him becoming a trade con. So then he became now detract con anymore that's the entire article. It's thousands of words, long thousands words. So a couple of things to note number one, there's a full on campaign by the left media at this point from the Washington Post to the New York Times from NBC to media matters, and I count media matters as part of the left, media infrastructure any publication that calls media matters. They watchdog group you can tell is on the side of media matters there is this overt effort now on. On the part of all of these publications to suggest that the tech companies are basically leading people down the rabbit hole of all right? White supremacists content by even allowing mainstream conservative contents. That's the goal here is to lump in everybody, who's a mainstream conservative with people who are. All right. And then suggests that if you watch mainstream conservative contents than inevitably, you will be led down this rabbit hole. Now, this is absurd and bizarre. They're legitimately hundreds of thousands of people who listen to the show every day or not even on the political, right? There are hundreds of thousands of people who are on the political, right? And believe that the outright is evil just as I do. But according to the New York Times, and the Washington Post and all of these other outlets. Basically, if you're on the right you're going to slide gradually white supremacism so long as you engage on YouTube now the reason they are directing this at YouTube is because they are hoping to use YouTube in order to quash conservative you points. They understand that there are certain shared forum where people post their views Facebook YouTube Twitter, all the rest of those Pinterest. And then what they're. Hoping to do. They, they understand conservatives aren't going to stop talking. So what they hope to do is make conservative speech so ridiculously outside the Overton window that all of these shared platforms have to shut it down. And they're hoping to do this in advance of the twenty twenty election. The timing is not a mistake here. It is not a coincidence, your ever since the left decided that Hillary Clinton had illegitimately lost the two thousand sixteen election and that she really one ever since that they've been looking for a scapegoat. And the scapegoat that is the most convenient for them are the tech companies and by attacking the tech companies with the left hopes to do is caused the tech companies to curb the content they allow on their platforms in advance of twenty twenty so the argument they are making is that the tech platforms didn't do enough to shut down the various loose keys, and therefore, they have to shutdown everybody on the right in advance of twenty twenty or at least curbed their reach, or at least elevated, quote unquote authoritative voices. So here's what this New York Times. Idiotic says Caleb Kane, pull the Glock pistol from his waistband took out the magazine and casually tossed both onto the kitchen counter.
