"the new yorker magazine" Discussed on Bob and Sheri

"On the bob and sherry Facebook page. Man, this professional cuddler thing is getting bigger and bigger. I thought it was like just maybe one or two weirdos in New York or something, but The New Yorker magazine just did an article on it. And here's what it says. The other day a professional cuddler who goes by the name of Trevor James. That's a good name for a professional cuddler. He says he cuddles up to ten hours a day, sat down for a session at his home office in Hollywood. Quote, people come to me because they are not being touched. He wore a cross pendant, a muscle T-shirt, red athletic shorts and flip flops. When the client comes through the door, I ask, may I give you a hug? They embrace or not, and James guides the client to an L shaped couch for an ice breaking conversation before entering his treatment room for eyes gazing and breathing exercises. Quote, then the cuddle starts. There are 80 different positions that are available. Really? He charges 80 is a lot. I like how that's the part of this story. That you've decided to fixate on. Well, I mean, I'm not sure defense. I'm with you here. 80 positions for just like a lot. Seems like a lot no matter what you do it. You know what I mean? No matter what you do. AD seems like a lot. He charges $90 an hour. Wow, for cuddling, has a two hour minimum and during the sessions he plays jazz or classical music softly in the background. You know, I've often said to myself, if I couldn't find this radio scam, what would I have become? I could do that, you know? Except I don't want to. I don't want a whole, I don't want to cuddle people. That'd be the only thing I'd have to get over that. So you want to do that. But other than that, I could figure out enough positions. I like the music in the background. That would be nice. Maybe you would send me like a little picture of yourself, right? And I could choose huh? This is the problem here. If you're going to be able to cut a if you're going to be a professional cuddler, you have to be prepared to cuddle anyone who's ready to pay your price. You don't get to like, oh, I only cuddle ladies that are blond and make funny faces. What kind of business model is that? I'm a very specific cuddler. I specialize I'm not cuddling. You remember sweaty, we used to work with us. That's a good sweaty, sweaty problem is he didn't get enough cuddling. He could use some cuddling. Yeah, well, he's not getting it from the BOB, okay? Yeah, that's what I would do. I'd say please submit your photograph just so I know what you look like as you come through the door, right? And then, you know, maybe I can $90 an hour. That's pretty good money. And listen to me. It would be great money if you'll cuddle anybody that can pay, but you're going to be like, I don't want to cuddle a dude and I don't want to you and I'm not cuddling you and I don't like the way you smell and I'm pretty soon. You know, you're living on my couch because you're not making enough money as a pro coder because you're judging. Could he make it like a sliding scale for people he didn't want to cuddle that he would charge them more? I don't think I don't do anything. Will you please listen to me? This is so big now. There's the cuddle professionals international and the cuddle sanctuary, which is in Los Angeles. This cuddling thing is really, hey, can you imagine go to a hotel and they're having a convention? What would that be like? And you walk into the living room. I could do this job. Yeah. I'm a hugger. I could be a professional cuddler. Yeah, you could. That's right. You're going to make a lot more than I am, but that's okay. I'm not selling out. 80 positions, though. That's a lot. I'm trying to see Better Call Saul. Can you just keep your head here? That's one of the things that they offer, by the way, you can binge your favorite show why he cut while he cuddles you on his L shaped couch. You know, there are people who don't get enough cuddling, and there are people who could get more cuddling, but it always leads to something else, and sometimes all you want is a cuddle. And so they resist cuddling because they don't want to be pressured, which is where you come in as the professional cuddler. Yeah. Right. Yeah. Well, so anyway, I'm going to the shells going real good, but if anything happens, like our stock goes down to, oh, I don't know, 56 cents a share. Kind of an insight. Yeah, then we could go on and know it loved it. Hey, if that happens, bob, we can embark on an Odyssey of pro cuddling. There you go. There you go. Say it again. Say it again. Odyssey of pro cuddling, but only if we drop to 50 some cents a share. Exactly. It's even sherry. The Facebook, the Twitter, the Instagram, you know that's how your mom describes them.

"Do you remember the prince's phone? Lit up dial. Remember that? Yeah, you can still buy those. And then you hook it up to your what, cell phone, through a Bluetooth gadget. She says it doesn't really work very well. I note this setup is not without its quirks. In order to get my old rotary phone to ring using the cell two Jack, I can't believe I'm even reading this in The New Yorker magazine of all places using the cell two Jack. I had to pry open the back and switch the bias spring to low position. This is like, this is how things have changed, right? This is the kind of article you would have in bike magazine or PC magazine compute. You set the bias spring to low position. Some guy in a short sleeve white shirt with big dark glasses, big thick rimmed black glasses. Usually a complicated set of instructions. So the clapper is sensitive enough to function. Usually the cell two Jack. No, it's in The New Yorker. The magazine of literary upscale college educated America, mirka. How to relive the pleasures of the landline? What a world, what a world we live in. So that's what we talk about. 88, 88 ask Leo. Yeah, I can help you relive the pleasures of the landline, although why? I don't know. The same reason people buy vinyl records, right? But honestly, I don't care what your audio file buddy says. They do not sound better. Okay? That's in his head or her head. That's imaginary. They scratch, they click, they warble, they wow, not sound better. It's just this kind of odd nostalgia, isn't it that we have? Because everything's moving just a little too fast.

"New COVID-19 variant called BA 5 is causing a spike in cases and hospitalizations across the nation. New York City is urging people to wear masks both at large outdoor gatherings and an indoor public spaces. CBS News medical contributor doctor David agus. They're 40,000 hospitalizations now in the United States and that is way too many, most are preventable with boosters in these medicines and we have to use them so we can continue to live with the virus and ride these waves. Turning now to abortion where a ban is back in effect in Louisiana after a judge's ruling yesterday, CBS Tom fody tells us President Biden signed an executive order to protect abortion rights. The Supreme Court has cleared the way for about half the states to restrict or ban abortions. President Biden's telling his part of the government to do what it can to protect those rights where they still exist, a closer look. With some states trying to limit a woman's ability to obtain federally approved abortion medication, or even to travel across state lines to access abortion services, the Biden executive order is designed to shield women from these state laws and ensure that they have federally protected options. Political analyst Leonard steinhorn, Tom CBS News Washington. It's looking like a court battle between Elon Musk and Twitter now that he's backed out of his deal to buy it can oleta is with The New Yorker magazine. It sounds to me that decision to acquire Twitter. And then had deep regrets about it. And it's been interesting to pull away from it without being stuck with that $1 billion battle. CBS's tech reporter Dan Patterson adds never in history if we had a figure like Musk, tried to acquire a social network like Twitter. These are both very unique properties and so Twitter suing Musk now is just one more twist in this very long and strange story. The devastated community and highland park Illinois is saying goodbye to victims of that mass shooting on July 4th, funerals have been held for 63 year old Jacqueline Sondheim and 88 year old Steven Strauss, sometimes daughter Leah tells mourners.

"I'm going to start flossing a whole lot more. Let's stick with me all day. It's Bobby cherry. You read it once. I don't believe that. And then you're ready to go. I can't believe this. It's bob and cherries. I believe this. And I believe this. It's true crime time and today it's time to explain true crime if your idea of a good weekend night is binging something on ID discovery. If your idea of a fun conversation started with a complete stranger is a serial killer factoid, this is for you. What is with the true crime obsession? What's up with people like, well, like me or max or so many of you where this is our idea of relaxing. You know, like after a long and difficult week, we unwind with a dateline marathon. What? Well, it turns out that fascination with this particular kind of gruesome and grisly genre murders kidnapping, blackmail, bribery, trickery, deceit, is a way of preparing for the worst, even though the odds are astronomically against the worst ever happening. So this all starts with one researcher trying to figure out who gets credit for kicking off our obsession with kruk tribe. True crime. Many people say that it all started in 1965 when in cold blood was published as a four part story in The New Yorker magazine. A couple years later, it came out as a novel, and then it was made into a book..

informed individual Rogers group combed through images and videos posted publicly and privately that day When it spotted this woman with a pink hat it shared the image on Twitter and asked the public for tips Ultimately using the online evidence Rogers group matched her to an individual in a video at a separate event There she gave her first name and said she was for Mercer county Pennsylvania Less than two weeks after they'd started investigating her the deep state dogs had identified Rachel Powell They sent the information to the FBI Rogers also worked with journalist Ronan farrow on a story that appeared in The New Yorker magazine where Powell acknowledged her involvement A few days later she was arrested In the beginning there were mistakes Some people were incorrectly identified as being at the capitol But it did help us to professionalize a little bit more right So we were definitely more careful Mary has been working with a group called capital terrorist exposures from her home in The Hague For security concerns NPR has agreed only to use her first name She says she's amazed at how quickly the sedition hunting community organized itself They agreed on hashtag nicknames for rioters like pink hat lady Some built whole websites to organize videos and photos into searchable databases And they've chosen lanes where specifically focused on the old key bush So far Mary says her group has identified one cluster of the far right group the oath keepers that entered the building It's now working on a second group But a year in sedition hunters have found some areas where they don't all agree Like which rioters to investigate forest Rogers again Basically the minute they stepped onto capital grounds they were trespassing so they were committing a crime But in my opinion that's just civil disobedience Rogers group has focused on rioters who are violent and hard to identify perhaps because their faces were obscured Mary's crew is investigating all oath keepers who showed up that day Regardless of whether they entered the capital or committed a crime This difference points to another question where sedition hunters may disagree What to do with positive identifications For Mary there's tension here and some history She's done this work before In 2017 Mary worked to identify white nationalists and neo Nazis who staged a violent rally in Charlottesville Many activists who were doing that don't work directly with law enforcement and Mary says she still doesn't I'm very much against mass incarceration And I do not like the American justice system At all But at the same time Mary says violent writers should face consequences So instead of reporting tips to the FBI her group sends information to journalists For forest Rogers the whole point of doing the work is to help the FBI Are we supposed to report them to Santa Claus They put him on the bad boy list or whatever I don't know what the alternative would be if it would not be to have these people face justice Reporter Ryan Reilly says even if this edition hunting community were to stop investigating rioters today we're looking at a very long tail to their work Riley is with HuffPost and one of the most well sourced journalists within the sedition hunting community This is going to unfold I would say at least over the next I would say definitely well into 2024 We're still going to be seeing new cases Oh that we just heard reporter Ryan Riley saying the sedition hunters are still at work So it's been a year how much more work are we talking about Well Riley says the FBI is still following up on hundreds of names provided by sedition hunters And among sedition hunters there are different opinions on whether they should continue For Rogers many of the most violent actors who are in the capitol have already been identified But Mary's still in the thick of it She wants to know the full extent of planning that groups like the oath keepers had done leading up to January 6th So for her this is an ongoing project Now force Rogers and Mary are two sedition hunters of what you said maybe hundreds of them So to what extent were you able to speak with others Well these are two sedition hunters that went on record I was in touch with others off the record but very few are willing to be publicly identified because there are risks to doing this work Mary has been doxed meaning her personal information including pictures of where she lives in The Hague have been published and she says her brother's business has been targeted And even within some of these small crews that have been working together so closely for the past year they hardly know anything about each other They don't know each other's names backgrounds or even which country they're in What did this addition hunters tell you ultimately about the sense that they might have that they're actually making a difference They acknowledged to me the shifts that we've been seeing in the U.S. in the last year like growing support for political violence in America And they know they might not change things like that But still they told me they're committed to holding people accountable and to doing something And this feels like something that they can do NPR's odette you said thank you very much Thank you.

Analyzing the New 'Trial of the Century' With Alan Dershowitz

"With us right now, is Alan Dershowitz who I don't think needs no introduction and does a great job on a variety of different topics and we've had Allen on the show before. Professor Dershowitz, thank you so much for joining the program. My question is what's your take on the Kyle rittenhouse drama and kind of I read an article that said, you believe he should be acquitted, please, the floor is yours. Well, not only do I think he should be acquitted, but I don't think he got a fair trial, whether he's acquitted or convicted. The media has put not a thumb on the scale, but an elbow on the scale. They have told everybody, particularly CNN, New Yorker magazine, MSNBC, they've already told the public, this guy is a white supremacist, a vigilante. He's no good. This will send a terrible, terrible message and a precedent. They have basically tried to take the self defense issue away from the jury and broaden the crime into him being there at all. He never should have been there, you never should have had a gun. He never should have confronted any of these other people. But that's not what he's charged with. He's charged with murdering two people and attempting to murder another. His defense is self defense. And the issue should be limited to the minutes leading up to the shootings and the moments after the shootings. And he should not be put on trial for his activities that whole day, whether we like or don't like what he did that whole day and I don't like it. I wish he hadn't commented, which he hadn't brought his gun. But that's not what he's on trial for. And so the jury has been distracted, I think, from the focus by the prosecution's case, and by the outside influences of the

Um what's happened in the months since we've seen you So I guess I'll recap. I'll do the honors. Help yourself. Okay? Um, in October. You were on a zoom call with your colleagues from the New Yorker magazine. Everyone took a break for several minutes, during which time you were caught masturbating. On camera. You were subsequently fired from that job after 27 years of working there. Do I have all that right? You've got it. All right. Sad to say, I think one point I wouldn't exactly say in my defense because nothing is really in my defense. I didn't think I was on the call. I didn't think other people could see me now. That's not a defense. This was deeply moronic and indefensible. But I mean that that is part of that. That is part of the story. Um and you know, I have spent the seven subsequent months miserable months in my life. I can certainly Confess trying to be a better person. I mean in therapy, trying to do some public service working in a food bank, which I certainly I'm going to continue to do, but I am trying to become the kind of person That people can trust again.

"This is the new yorker fiction podcast from the new yorker magazine. I'm deborah tradesman fiction editor at the new yorker each month. We invite a writer to choose a story from the magazine's archives to read and discuss this month. We're going to hear gallatin canyon by thomas mccain which was published in the new yorker in january two thousand three. The road stretched before me like an arrow. There was only enough. That left before rigby for me to say perhaps involuntarily. I wonder if we should just get married. Louise quickly looked away.

So you said when we first talked about doing podcast episode that you wanted to read a western story. Why was that. I think that there's a a renewed interest in literature of the west and also by authors. Who hail from the west and the story. I think is so deeply rooted in landscape and space in a certain kind of mentality of the mountain west which it both honors excoriates i am. I've loved the story. Ever since. I first read it and it just feels very emblematic of the space to me. Now when the story came out in two thousand three or a teenager. Did you read it. Then i did not. I'm ashamed to say. I read it some years but i did read it before i became a resident of the mountain west myself and i certainly think it shaped the way i thought about the area. Have you been a longtime reader of maclean's work. I would say that. I've been reading his work for almost the entire duration of my quote unquote literary life. A friend of mine. Who is a huge fan of his work and introduced me to it and I mean there's such range in his stories in his novels there's so much. Discover with mclean. Always

It says we're just crazy passionate nerds for our coffee and we are the us coffee championships showcase the competitive side of appreciation for coffee at the coffee champs qualifying round and nashville in two thousand nineteen professionals demonstrate their ability to detect notes of every kind cupping.

Assume call with CNN talking about the last election, but he's on another zoom call with I'm not a not 100% sure. But, uh, hey, kind of forgets where he is.

Hiroshima survivors worry that world will forget

"Exactly 15 minutes past eight in the morning on August 6th, 1945 Japanese time at the moment when the atomic bomb flashed above Hiroshi MMA Miss Yoshiko Sasaki, a clerk in the personnel department of the East Asia, 10 Works had just sat down at her place in the plant office and was turning her head to speak to the girl at the next desk. That rather ordinary sentence is the opening to the extraordinary August 1946 New Yorker article titled Oshima. It was published a year after the United States dropped the first nuclear bomb on that city, a year in which the U. S government had gone to great lengths to conceal the human devastation caused And to depict the bomb as a conventional humane weapon. The writer of the Peace John Hursey, uncovered a very different story reporting on the ground in Japan, author and journalist Leslie Bloome chronicles foresees work and the reaction to it in her new book, Fallout. She joins me now from Los Angeles. Leslie Bloome. Welcome. Thank you. Start with Who? John Hursey Wass and how he came to be the one to tell this story. Oh, John. Her see was a young World War two correspondent who had covered action in different theaters throughout the war for Time magazine. And like many war correspondents, then he was pretty supportive of the U. S military. And he even wrote an almost overly complimentary wartime bio of General Douglas MacArthur and That the U. S military knew him entrusted him would be an important factor in my story and how he eventually got his story about Hiroshi MMA, and I don't want to give away too much. But I will say that how he got in was by being the perfect Trojan horse reporter, The perfect Trojan horse reporter. You've hooked us where we're intrigued when I got there. He didn't report this out as a war correspondent. He focused very much on ordinary people on he picked six of them. Why did he want to tell the story in that way? Well, I mean, the fact of the matter is is that the bombing of Hiroshima was widely reported when it happened, and it was reported as a very big end of days. Story mean there were pictures of the mushroom clouds that were released in pictures, the landscape devastation. But there were no pictures that were released or no stories that were released about the human toll that it happened on the ground there, and the government was really going to enormous lengths to cover up the reality of theater. Tomic aftermath in Hiroshima, Nagasaki They were very concerned with as the former secretary of war, put it, not being seen as having outdone, Hitler and atrocities. So her C and his editors at the New Yorker magazine became determined to tell the story from the point of view of survivors. You know, these are among the on ly humans who have ever experience what it's like to be on the receiving end of nuclear attack. He ultimately picked a widow with young kids, a young female clerk to medics, a priest and a minister with with a young family, and his idea was to create a sense of empathy. In his readers with these individuals, because, after all, not everybody could understand the physics of how the bombs works or visualized. You know, an all out nuclear attack that anyone could relate to being a mother or a father or colleague or doctor who's going about their everyday business. One catastrophe strikes I wonder if you would give us a sense of just one telling story of what he did find when he was there What it was that so shocked American readers who had no idea what was unfolding in Japan. One story that particularly resonated with him. He interviewed a young female clerk who was in her company when the bomb was detonated. This's the clerk I mentioned in the intro exactly one of the most famous introductions in journalistic history, and when the bomb exploded over her factory bookshelves fell upon her, and she was nearly crushed to death by books. And he thought How ironic it was to have somebody nearly crushed by books within the first moments of the atomic age, and literally when he was leaving here, Oshima and standing on the surprisingly intact train station platform, he thought that he was going to have to write about that line. And that's one of the incidents that most resonated with readers. So August 1946 The New Yorker publishes. What was the reaction? Both in the United States and around the world to this story. Well in her sees own words. The reaction was quote explosive mean, I try not to use that word in my book for obvious reasons. But he did, And the article was simply titled here, Oshima, and it comprised nearly the entire contents of the August 31st 1946 issue of The New Yorker. It's sold out immediately. You're even black market copies of it going for, you know, astronomical sums. It was syndicated in its entirety, and this is a 30,000 word story in newspapers across the country and around the world. And editors and reporters and readers were enraged. They were horrified by the testimonies in her sees here, Oshima, and they also began demanding to know what else was the U. S government withholding from the US public And then, when President Truman was asked by a reporter if he had personally read it, he retorted. I never read the New York ER. It just makes me bad. But the fact is, is that the government had been put very much on the defensive. That said, You know, they didn't want to look like they were on the defensive, but they were and they had to scramble to try to reclaim the narrative.

S. history call these truths a history of the United States she's also history professor at Harvard and now gill pores back with us to talk about some eerie parallels between the nineteen thirties and today parallels that might actually give us hope in a path to follow not just make a shake our heads and part of the story is about the potential of radio to enhance democracy Joe it's always a pleasure to have you on welcome back to W. NYC thanks so much for having the right your story really starts in World War one which the president at the time Woodrow Wilson called the war to make the world safe for democracy and in the short run it did yeah it actually did I mean I think it's it it's important remember just to sort of see where we are in the chronology of history no European nations had been ruled by monarchs for centuries and in the decades before the first World War constitutional republics were merging and the age of monarchy was coming to an end and the Ottoman industry Austrian empires were being destroyed and dismantle during the first World War and what Wilson was promising was a new dawn for democracy that modernity we involve the diffusion of democracy around the world the end of the Tory tarian rule was on the horizon so World War one ended in nineteen nineteen but by nineteen twenty two Mussolini was marching on Rome fascism and communism were toppling new democracies that had only recently replaced old minorities as you remind us in your piece is there a you know short radio interview version of why these new democracies were so susceptible so quickly well partly it had to do with just the fragility of a very young democracies is kind of like a very high infant mortality rate for democracies because of the institutions of self government aren't part of the political culture in the civic culture it can take awhile for them to really develop as you know we now know I think that that was kind of a surprise to a lot of people in nineteen twenties much of your article is about the question of what democracy even survive at that time and that that question about the future of democracy the question itself became ubiquitous in this country in the media and public discourse in the nineteen thirties can you give us a sense of that Ubiquiti well it's it is really really similar to now I mean if you go into a bookstore you'll see all kinds of books called you know how democracy ends why democracies die those same titles are all over magazines and in bookstores in the nineteen thirties and even you know the New York New York is running this series on the future of democracy the new Republic in the nineteen thirties ran a series on the future of democracy people were really wondering whether at this form of government which was newer than what wooden door especially in the nineteen thirties because of the tremendous suffering of the Great Depression was still down in the United States about the value of democracy versus something else to solve the problems of the depression I think there was a sense that that the suffering was so severe and the reforms needed especially the reform of the banking system which you recall when FDR took office the very first thing he did was reformed closed shut the banks down the idea was that the our system of government which distributes power across the three branches of government couldn't act quickly enough couldn't didn't have a consolidated power in order to make the changes as fast as they needed to be made to save the economy there was a real concern that FDR I think of a fairly widespread concern that FDR would have to take on essentially dictatorial powers in order to do what needed to be done and I've read that FDR's new deal because it was just enough socialism save democracy and save capitalism because otherwise the American people may have opted for something like Russia had opted for two how much is that your check I think there's a sense of the you know the best scholarship on the new deal really considers how contemporaries regarded FDR's challenging the challenge of Congress as steering some kind of a middle path between a fully state run economy which would take us you know to to socialism and communism or the continuation of really laissez faire business winds market driven economy which had been Hoover's approach to her course was a businessman that is after after his predecessor and your head to try to find a way to to essentially invent something new a kind of hybrid between those two extremes and that's what the new deal was you even side aid W.

NYC two one two four three three nine six nine two one issue about one one little reference in your article and apparel of that I saw was something that came up on the show last week you referred to a moment in a political debate on the radio in the thirties when a guy in the audience shouted you are a liar at one of the debaters and the moderator calmly said we don't allow that and asked him to leave and it reminded me that just last week New York times columnist Paul Krugman is here and he mentioned how the rules for his his column at the times have evolved since he started writing it in the year two thousand listen to the story two thousand was really a radicalized in your from because I was my first year at the New York times and there was the candidate of a major presidential party lying lying through his teeth about his tax plans about SO security plans and hopefully it was like to say that I was actually at the time forbidden from using the word lie in their tires so I think times have changed a bit now I was forbidden from using the word lie in the New York times I was writing of course about George W. bush as the candidate in two thousand and he said the times have changed now and then when I read your article over the weekend I thought wow is there any kind of historical throughline about our discourse you know that means anything from your nineteen thirties radio debate moment of times gradually allowing its columnists to call people liars in the twentieth century to the culture of distrust in truth is in truth that were immersed in now there is absolutely I mean I agree I wouldn't say it's necessarily aligned it's more of a big sprawling mass but there are really changing standards maybe for for the radio but also for the newspaper if you think I mean there's a raucous political conversation on the radio in the nineteen thirties and nineteen forties less so during wartime right is that there's a whole kind of propaganda operation during wartime but what happens in the nineteen fifties really does significantly changed journalism when leading newspapers actually begins really with the times begin to suggest that the way that they've been reporting political news which is essentially kind of stenographer like right like they've just sort of here's what the White House said today be on the front page of The New York Times and then there are you know there'd be some opinion pieces that might serve be delicately critical but during the age of McCarthy and in the aftermath you know of Stalinism The New York Times decided that it would change its approach that it pick it launched by the end of the nineteen fifties an entirely new kind of newspaper piece that had and they still do this they have a kind of little sub head this is a news analysis and it's the birth by the end of the nineteen fifties of adversarial journalism and it's that adversarial journalism that makes possible the the deep critical criticism of the Vietnam War the reporting that times reporters for the times and the post to Washington post during the nineteen sixties a Vietnam because the tone of journalism as change it's possible there's this kind of new category of analyzing the news rather than simply it reporting what the White House is said or what happened in Congress that day so when a similar transformation has happened in the age of trump right it's not unlike the age of McCarthy which is to say that editorial boards looking at what they're facing in terms of the misinformation coming out you know think about it what are marlin this see it now broadcast about McCarthy in nineteen fifty four that took a lot for CBS news to be willing to actually say McCarthy is lying right but it really change television journalism the same has happened in the age of trump by the way correction I think I said World War two and World War one ended in nineteen nineteen of course if it was November eleventh nineteen eighteen for some reason I was thinking this past November eleventh was was a big anniversary but of course was the year before so let's take a phone call for Jill Lepore Edward in queens here on W. NYC hired work hi I'd rank I love your show by the way are very formative years smart guy as I write I could not a democracy seems to be very selective or very limited to a lot of trying to people don't question to answer back thank you so much Chrissy for instance are you on the British in India they they didn't there was no democracy Linda for the Indian people but they colonized or the you know that before that Angolans in Africa Portugal Colin I thought I'd imagine Palestine or what Israelis are doing now with the with the Palestinians there's that may be the only democracy in the Middle East but not for the Palestinians so.

Democrats and the media are rooting for an economic catastrophe to hell with people losing their homes and their lives and their families with what's important is a good tribe out of office that's number one so it kind a kind of began you know with the Russian collusion delusion and that didn't work then they tried race racism for several months and seemingly that didn't work and now they're on

yesterday which of the drone attacks on the Saudi Arabian oil facilities appears to be a catastrophe but tonight as of what about ten or nine PM eastern time things aren't too bad in the markets which is a shock and it's mainly because the tribe stirs indicated is going to release millions of gallons of oil from the strategic preserve which has not been done in about seven or eight years and that's

it's a league to sell a book woman denies a memory in just to go over this briefly I'm gonna spend most of the night talking about the get ridiculous absurd gun comments made by one Beto o'rourke who was finally put his cards on the table there was no more hiding the truth Democrats want your guns and if you don't you don't voluntarily surrender them they will come with the armed federal agents to take your guns away some four hundred million guns hundred ten million gun owners they're going to make sure you give your guns up before that. the authors of this story about Brad Cavanaugh omit the fact that the alleged victim this fresh allegation has no memory of the alleged incident okay I understand what I just said the authors omit the fact in the story excerpt today by Good Morning America and also by a course in BC that the alleged victim has no memory of the event. they say in these two New York times story reporters quote we also uncovered a previously unreported story about Mr Kavanaugh in his freshman year at Yale that echoes ms Debbie Ramirez's allegation I classmate Max dire sol Mr Kavanaugh with his pants down how to different drunken dorm party or friends pushed Kavanaugh's **** into the hand of a female student nothing in my son no wait a minute I do some criminal defense work as a way to second but let us think about what the this is the bomb shell a classmate Max dear at Yale thirty years ago Saul Mr Kavanaugh with his pants down at a different drunken dorm party than the one room air as was at we're friends pushed his **** into the hand of a female student can someone explain to me the logistics of the allegation was he walking around naked when his friends pushed him into a female student was it on winningly that that that's the bombshell and by the way. right now Mr Starr runs a nonprofit organization in Washington he notified senators in the FBI about this incident but the FBI could not investigate and Mr star at the time of the confirmation hearing declined to discuss that to discuss it publicly. that that's the whole deal it's unbelievable the book notes that the woman named by Max dire. as having been supposedly victimized by cabin all listen they're not eyes any memory of the event. was out a minute by the maze Maged Danny boy Gleison me try that again according to a New York times itself. admitting the fact the New York times. he says that the friend denies any memory of the event itself but they say even though she denies it the new so called victim this new allegation lends credence to the on the record allegation made by Yale classmate Deborah remember remember as back in twenty eighteen during the confirmation process she and some classmates had been drinking heavily which she admits when she says a freshman named Brad Cavanaugh ideal pulled down his pants and thrust his **** out her prompting her to swatted away and ended virtually touched so many onlookers who had been passing around a fake **** earlier in the evening laughed about it. now moving on a debit Ramirez to give me a little bit of memory every room where it remember as was a classmate of Cavanaugh who now claims Cavanaugh exposed himself to a college freshman at a party remember is this claim was dubious. because the name witnesses denied the allegation she gave names of the FBI these other classmates what confirm they didn't confirm a number two Romero's herself what you sure in recent weeks have Cavanaugh had done what she now alleges this is going back to twenty eighteen quote ms Ramirez herself contacted former Yale classmates of hers ask if they recalled the incident and told some of them that she could not be certain Mr Kavanaugh was the one who exposed himself to her. Ramirez was only willing to make the allegation according The New Yorker magazine quote after six days I carefully assessing her memories and consulting with their attorney unquote so this bomb shell allegation played a by the media the book notes quietly that the woman Max Stier named as having supposedly victimized by Kavanaugh's friends denies any member of the alleged incident that's the incident supporting Ramirez who says and told friends that she could not be certain it was Cavanagh anyway. what are we talking about here is there a presumption of innocence and it took her six days of quote carefully assessing her memory and good Sony whether attorney unquote and once that happened now I remember I remember now. and now the Democrats are calling for the quote impeachment and removal of Brad Cavanaugh a course it whenever it Republican impeached and removed from the commerce secretary to the president the vice president if you're a federal official they want your removed but if that's a bomb shell I would hate to see what a pips squeak as that is unbelievable now secondly. let's talk about Beto o'rourke. o'rourke incredible comments made three or four nights ago and that and that discussion in for in Texas about what to do about gun crimes and things that character it is incredible to me Beto o'rourke said among other things among most stupid comments I've ever seen in my life hello yeah we're gonna take your A. R. fifteen if it's a weapon that was designed to kill people on the battlefield we're going to fight back on quote we wanted he went on to say that it will be confiscated incredible he finally showed his cars you know I have a lot of respect in a sense for someone like Beto o'rourke speaking the truth and someone like Bernie Sanders is a communist telling us exactly who they are but the cards up let and don't beat around the bush. but what better or work is saying that because less than two percent of the homicides in this country. are the criminals the thugs and the mass shooters choose an A. R. fifteen or a K. type weapon semi automatic that looks a certain way because less than two percent of calls by those weapons that all the other ninety nine point nine nine percent of A. R. fifteen the HK forty seven owners must give up their weapons and if you don't give it up we're gonna come with armed federal agents to take it how in the world is America country where groups are blamed for the sins missions crimes of individuals does it work in any other area of life. where you can say forty thousand Americans die every year in motor vehicles therefore you can't drive. yeah turning your car stop it. I was in court the other day I watched three consecutive women walk up in Albany County municipal court and plead guilty to passing bad checks there's I mean every woman that has a checking account my shut it down or the government was shut it down for you how do we live in a country where if a few number of people commit terrible offenses what property that you also own a similar thing that somehow is a law abiding citizen you must give up your property to satisfy what it would have no impact on criminals whatsoever. I'm a Chevy guy I I drive a Chevy traverse but I'm told the F. one fifty Ford pick up is the most popular vehicle in America today I understand that every year there are several hundred owners of F. one fifty pickups who drive drunk that means if you're one of the other eight million that have an F. one fifty Ford pickup truck you got to turn it in because someone else did something wrong. you can't make this stuff up we're a nation of majority rules and individual rights. and my right to protect myself was given to me number one by god and number two by the second member. or up in fact Beto o'rourke who pretends to be Hispanic said quote I see Americans complying with the law I see is working with gun owners non gun owners. and local county state and federal cops to come up with the best possible solution he may want to talk to a sixty one year old man. in Summerfield Florida. who was recently confronted is home by four young armed home invaders he pulls out.

Trump Undercuts Bolton on North Korea's Missiles

"Begin tonight, keeping them. Honest, President Trump back tonight from his state visit to Japan, whether it was the President's Cup trophy created just for him to present an assumed match the rounds of golf or the audience with Japan's new emperor. The trip was designed to flatter him showcase US Japanese unity. Instead, it seems to showcase divisions inside the west wing over what the country's foreign policy actually, is, which is no academic question. Considering that the divide appears to be over at least two global hotspots, Iran and North Korea. And it's especially significant in that it's the president and John Bolton. His national security adviser is third national security adviser so far seems increasingly at odds with each other. Now, you'll recall he was passed over for the job once before, in part, reportedly because of his mustache, the president's been widely reported do not believe. To look, the part, so he picks up one who would end up being a felon, Michael Flynn, then replaced him with three star general H R McMaster, who is a storied military career, but the president once said he looked like a beer, salesman and when he left Bolton got the nod tonight after the president's performance Japan. He's looking increasingly distant from the boss take a little cures Bolton in Tokyo watching as the president undercuts him on North Korean missile testing, which Bolton says, violates a UN Security Council resolution. My people think it could have been a violation, as you know, I view it differently. I view it as a man, perhaps, he wants to get attention or the president went onto rhapsodised about all the great beachfront property. There is North Korea and Spokane Kim Jong UN as, if he were a fellow real estate tycoon, naughty, bloodthirsty dictator of you. John bolton. Clearly does not share never has and the two different Iran, as well with the president talking tough in public, but counseling restraint behind closed doors, which it should be mentioned is certainly his prerogative is chief executive should also be said the president's often see things differently from their national security advisers, sometimes even hiring them to play devil's advocate. That said the president has now hired three of them. He seems secretaries of state defense in u n ambassadors come and go is change course. So many times on so many issues, whether it's North Korea Iran, pulling out of Syria, threatening to leave NATO there, perhaps it's not really possible to say that he and embassador Bolton truly at odds on foreign policy because he so far has no. Real consistent foreign policy to be at odds with other than a preference for appeasing dictators. That's the question at leaves the other, of course, is what exactly did the president? I think he was getting in John Bolton who's who's been nothing if not consistent, and consistently hawkish over the years perspective. Now from Dexter Filkins was written at length about it for the New Yorker magazine in a fascinating piece, entitled John Bolton on the warpath Ken Trump's national security advisor, sell the 'isolation as president on military force. Dexter, thanks for being here. John Bolton has always been John Bolton. I mean he's, he's always said that North Korea cannot be appeased that they're not going to give up nuclear weapons. And yet, there he is working for president who clearly is trying to make a deal. It's, it's, it's I think it's a fundamental divide in the White House, you have Bolton has publicly advocated attacking North Korea into Ron before he was national security advisor. He's, he's called regime change in Venezuela. It's not clear that Trump. Really buys into any of that. I mean, Trump campaign, I think I think so somebody must have said to him. You watch them on FOX saw him on FOX. And I think my impression is what, what the president liked about him was, how blunt he was, you know, it was like very, very blunt and plainspoken. But when when you look at when you look at their to worldviews they, they don't get you for

Former CBS CEO Les Moonves Denied $120 Million Severance Package

"This message comes from NPR sponsor Comcast. Comcast values your time. That's why you can schedule to our appointment windows, including nights and weekends that way. You can spend more time doing what you love. Comcast working to make things. Simple, easy, and awesome CBS is accusing les Moonves says of a quote willful failure to cooperate with an investigation into allegations of sexual misconduct. That failure atop the alleged misconduct. Is why CBS is denying him a severance payment of one hundred twenty million dollars? So what if the downfall of a legendary executive mean for his company NPR TV critic, Eric Dagens has covered moon vez and CBS for years. He's here either. Eric, hi, according to CBS, at least, and we should note. Moonves denies wrongdoing broadly. What what what is CBS say moon vested? Well, let's go back move. As was forced to step down back in September. At the New Yorker magazine published allegations from several women. Claiming he had sexually harassed or salted them. So the CBS board wound up hiring to law firms to look in the allegations against moon vase, also harassment or misconduct allegations that CBS news and CBS is wider corporate culture. Okay. So we mentioned an alleged willful failure to cooperate was Moonves supposed to cooperate with those law firms. Yes, they expected him to tell the truth when they asked him questions about his past conduct. Now, we haven't seen the reports that these law firms have created, but the New York Times reported on early drafts of the reports which said that investigators have evidence move as had lied to them and had tried to destroy text showing that he attempted to find acting work for one woman who'd made accusations against him in the board statement, they accused move as a breaching his contract and quote, willful material misfeasance now I had to look that word up, but it means performing an official duty in an improper or unlawful manner move as a turn. He has said in a statement that the conclusions are baseless that his client cooperated fully and that he vehemently denies assaulting. Although possession is nine tenths of the law. CBS has the one hundred twenty million dollars. They say they're keeping the one hundred twenty million dollars unless there's some other preceding we don't know about coming. But that leaves CBS trying to move on from losing its top executive in this in this particular way, how deep does the problem run at CBS. Well, you know, this was a company wants known as the Tiffany network. It bills itself as the most watched broadcast network in America, they have all these popular programs. But they also have this history of harassment allegations CBS this morning anchor Charlie rose was fired last year. After a Washington Post story revealed multiple allegations of sexual harassment. Jeff Fager, the executive producer of the top news magazine. Sixty minutes was let go in September. He had sent a threatening text to a CBS reporter who was working on a story about harassment allegations at CBS news. The New York Times reported last week on a nine. A nine point five million dollar settlement with actress Elisha deuce coupe who claim the she was harassed while she was working on the CBS drama bull. So there's a lot. And and as a critic, I pointed out CBS's lack of new show starring women for years. The question now is you know, is CBS really going to look harder at its history. Now or just hope everybody moves on after this crisis pass, you're putting on an interesting connection or parallel. We don't know how closely their connected, but we have allegations of private misconduct, and your noting something wrong with the public faces. CBS the opportunities given to women the representation of women CBS doing anything about these kinds of problems. Well, the board says it's created this new position called chief people officer to revamp its human resources departments. They say their diversity and inclusion efforts have been an adequate and they're going to beef them up. They're giving twenty million dollars to several different groups that are working to combat workplace harassment. But the CBS board is her from employees who said that Powell stars. And. Executives were not held accountable at the company and the question is whether CBS is going to hold them accountable now without big stories in the media to pressure them, Eric thanks so much for sheet. It thank you. That's NPR critic Eric decades.
