"The new york times did an article. It was more. What was it. It was like a series of articles. It was yes see peace. I guess they call it. America's mothers are in crisis and it has like sort of six articles underneath one umbrella. I'll put the link in the show notes. Yeah and i thought it was interesting and it captured a lot of the stuff that we're hearing. Oh before we do that though. I want to say one other thing. Someone else talked about. Which i think is another part of this frustration. That like she's living this crazy pandemic life and her neighbors just came back from disneyworld Like there's also that whole aspect where it's like we are in this cocoon of our house traps together for a year and then on facebook. There's like friends of ours bars and we're just like we what is life. It's like all the tent poles of sanity have been pulled up and we're just kind of flailing we'll let me tell you it's really hard about that. Is you know speaking from experience or somebody close to me that the people who are going to disneyworld seemed to be fine and the people who are staying home and doing nothing like you know went to the corner wants and geico vet like covert isn't being fair on who decides to track down if you feel me yes and that is for sure and i know you realize this a completely anecdotal like experience that you're having which is not actually true like yes. People are getting cova at disneyworld and getting it. You know by trying to go to school right. That's right. It happens to all of us but the sensation when you see only the pictures of like people on vacation is like wait. Why am i in hell and these other people are like flittering around you know and it's just mentally really difficult and the new york times article focuses specifically on working moms which is another whole aspect of this. Ps all working moms hashtag. We are all working but this is like with the boss. Yes moms who work outside the home and now inside the home. That's the problem is responsibilities to a third party yet right. You're trying to work from home. And i mean it was illuminating. Hadn't really thought about one of the women is like a counselor and she's trying to have meaningful conversations with people and our kids like running around in the background. Like i mean we have you guys have heard sometimes on this podcast like one of my kids will open the door and the background i mean like what am i need but i run a parenting. Podcast just go. I'm home and my kids are here. You hear them. Yes but there's a lot of jobs really the stress of you can't have your kid in. The background is really profound. There's one picture. And i guess i'll put this in the show notes as well. The linked to the pictures you guys can see it. 'cause i seen it all over facebook. There's one photo split screen of a mom wiping toddlers but while in the next room. The dad is sitting calmly on a conference call and the mom is also on a work. Call right but it's the mom that is wiping the taller spot. While she's like trying to close a deal and the other parent is in the other room getting to act as if the pandemic doesn't exist and what bothered me about this article looking at it with any angry visit. This was very much. Phrased is a mother's problem which it is not a parental problem. Right guys problem that the toddlers at home and needs his butt wipe during a conference call because the mama handle it and this is something we've talked about a lot. And i mean we my husband and i had come to jesus moment about this at some point fairly early on which was i mean. My job is much more flexible than my husband's job. And my husband is also the primary breadwinner household right and also less lucrative right right so there are some natural kind of. What's the word like inertia things that happened. There which is like i am more available and able and his job is not quite so like a kid screaming in the background. Sorry i don't know what he's done but he's on calls with people with money already. He's tried to get it. You know whatever he's doing right. And so i understand this parameters. But i did say early on to him. Your work and his work has been understanding. Thank god some people's aren't but i said you're working needs to understand that it is not my job to create an atmosphere where the pandemic is not happening so you can continue to work as if the pandemic is not happening and i have to like as my mom would say stand on my head spit wooden nickels to make sure that everything stays peaceful in your office environment. It's not realistic. And it's not going to
Pregnant COVID-19 survivors appear to pass protective antibodies on to their babies
"Let's talk about this next story. As i said. I'm very encouraged by it. So pregnant women pass on antibodies to their children who were then apparently based on the early data immune to infection. So what's going on here. Well this says evidence builds that pregnant women pass on covert antibodies to newborns in. This was a new york times article. They really pass it onto the unborn because it says to newborns but they're passing it through the placenta which is a pre birth situation except for a few minutes but the basic idea is that you can apparently pass protective antibodies through the placenta For covid which is really great and this came from an article in Jama pediatrics. Which i think they really should just call jammies with. I mean better. The basic ideas that Women are transferring. Antibodies their fetuses and the earlier. That you encounter the antigen in this case. I guess they're talking about infection. The more antibody is transmitted to the fetus. And this has a lot of profound amply profound implications because what it says is is that vaccination on pregnant women may be very important and may have protective effects on the fetus. And the problem is that in all of the studies that this happened that were done the pfizer and the modern of studies. They didn't include pregnant women. In the cohort. A couple of women became pregnant while in the study and there are no adversities but There were no tests that were done on pregnant women and that remains something to be seen. So what would they learned from. Natural infection seems to be really good evidence that it'll be a good thing to vaccinate pregnant women. Yeah as i said very very encouraging news now one other thing that they mentioned in passing in the study was that none of the babies Became infected now. They can't one hundred percent rule out the that maybe an unborn child will get this. If the mothers sick but from the evidence we have so far it looks like mothers get infected and they can't pass it to their children. Is that correct that right. That's right it doesn't it doesn't look like there is viral transmission through the placenta but it appears as though the antibody can do it. So it's a. It's a very selective filter placentas are weird and That's a looks like that's the case

Giuliani won't represent Trump at Senate impeachment trial
"New York Times says former Mayor Rudy Giuliani will not represent President Trump and a second impeachment trial, James Flipping has more. It's so not really clear what happens with second impeachment of President Trump, as some reports indicate the articles wouldn't be delivered to the Senate until the 1st 100 days of Biden's presidency. And some argue impeachment is designed to remove a sitting official and as such can apply to a former president either way, The Times article argues Trump's advisers hold both impeachment proceedings against Giuliani. It also says there's frustration over his decision to discuss Trump's possible Senate trial during a TV interview.

Ceo who just killed a project in production for the apple tv streaming service per the new york times because he didn't like the subject matter. We'll from the tone of the new york times article.

Some of Edward Hopper’s Earliest Paintings Are Actually Copies He Made From a How-To Art Magazine
"Zoom in art history doctoral student of the court hauled institute in London has just caused quite a stir in the art world. was. Shadwick has discovered that at least three of Edward Hopper's early oil paintings are copies of other artists work. Two. Of them come from a magazine for amateur artists that was published before hopper's paintings of the same scenes and a third appears to be copied from Victorian painted porcelain plaque. Painting by Bruce Crane that appeared in the magazine, the art interchange in eighteen ninety called a winter sunset is nearly identical to. Eighteen Ninety, seven old ice pond at Nyack. A painting that also appeared in the art interchange in eighteen eighty, six called ships by Edward Moran is a near identical match to Edward Hopper's ships from eighteen, ninety eight. And the Victorian Porcelain Plaque based on an unidentified painting I think needs a little bit more verification but it does look just like hoppers 1897 church landscape. You can see all of these side by side in the New York Times article linked in the show notes. But a couple of notes on this Carter, foster hopper expert and director at the Blanton Museum of art in Texas notes that it's not at all unusual for artists of the time to have gotten their start by copying other works it was part of the learning process. But the problem is that much of the myth of hopper that he leaned into a bit while he was alive was that he had a preternatural talents especially evident in his early oil paintings that he created all on his own quoting the New York Times for Kim Canetti curator of drawings and prints at the Whitney. Museum. In New York where she is. At. Work on a big hopper, show the copying that Mr Shannon with revealed has more important repercussions. It cuts straight through the widely-held perception of hopper as an American. Original. She said as an artist whose innate genius allowed him to emerge on the scene without a debt to others. The only real influence I've ever had was myself. He wants claimed and quotes. And importantly, hoppers version of old ice pond nyack is currently being sold by an art gallery for between three hundred and four hundred thousand dollars. Will these revelations change anything about that price points and other sales of his early works? Showed wakes discovery is still in the process of being compiled and peer reviewed but perhaps, the market and hoppers legacy will shift somewhat in the near future. You know hopper's art has become a symbol of everyday life in mid century America his paintings brought to life the predominant thoughts and feelings of the time quoting again from the New York Times critics and scholars have always been intrigued by awkwardness that hopper allowed himself in many of his classic paintings sees that looked more painted than liquid in his famous groundswell, the Awkward Anatomy of his female nude in morning in the city or the stony faces of the diners in nighthawks. Now that we know that hopper was never a painting prodigy we can think of his later paintings as deliberately revisiting the limitations of his adolescence and finding virtue and power there. There's a classic move in American. Culture to see the unschooled in Homespun as more authentic and especially as more authentically American than the sophist stories of those decadent old Europeans end quote. And yet this is something I think about sometimes you know oddly for a nation. So deeply entrenched in its origins in the idea of the Protestant work ethic does seem to be this pervasive narrative throughout the centuries in. United. States that someone who is just miraculously gifted born perfect in a certain field or talent without help or instruction from anyone else is so much better. So much more deserving of being glorified than someone who Had to work hard at it who trained in grew over time maybe made some mistakes along the way not only does that do a disservice to the true fact that many people do have to work hard to perfect skills and talents and lead many to give up if they think they're not perfect at their first shot, but it erases the many people who help someone hone their craft and make it to where they are. Leads us to only praising leaders, celebrities, Star athletes, people in the spotlight and forgetting all about the people, the coaches, the teachers, the drivers, the medics, the operations, managers, the custodial workers, the domestic workers, the caregivers. Who Make someone's life like that possible I don't think there is anything at all wrong with Edward Hopper copying other artists as he learned his craft. But I do think it speaks volumes that he chose to or felt he had to particularly as he became this emblem of Americana Incarnate, hide that he had had any type of early instruction or influence, and thereby taking credit over these other artists instead of bringing them into the fold with him the New York Times mentions that part of it was so revolutionary and captivating about hoppers work was his depiction of average everyday life in America and they conclude I. Agree quotes. If. Hopper claimed to be an absolute original uninfluenced by others, his greatest paintings work hard to convey a different image of their maker. Their studied awkwardness asks us to imagine him as someone who might indeed have started his career copying someone else as just your average American working hard to make good end quote.

"We did confirm The president's salary is $400,000 and USA Today did a Ah fact check on this back in the in July of this year, July 11th of this year Factcheck President Donald Trump donates his salary, but he still makes money. They said the claim as President Donald Trump receives criticism and how he has handled the Corona virus pandemic. His backers have taken a social media to show their support. One topic that comes up is that the president works for no money and donates the entirety of his presidential salary. It was on Trump has promised during the campaign does write checks to various agencies equivalent to a quarter of his annual salary. Every quarter. He donates his entire salary. But does this mean he earns no money? Off course not. That notion is misleading because Trump continues to profit off real estate he owns or manages, despite lawsuits, arguing this violates the Constitution's monuments causes That is Baloney. Trump not the first president to donate his salary. Presidents John Kennedy and Herbert Hoover. Both wells, wealthy before they took off has donated all their earnings. Which is what they they donated their salaries. They didn't donate their other earnings and who knows? Who is President Trump donated to In 2017, the National Park Service, Department of Education, Health and Human Services, the Department of Transportation 2018.

Ah, they had as of July had not announced who they were going. Who the president of donating to. Ah, ah, in 2020, both the 1st and 2nd and now, well, third quarter back to the phones we go. Let's go to Jo in Belmont, Joe next on nights I go right ahead. And before I talk about the taxes, I would like to ask you a question. Well it before you talk about the taxes, Joe, but go ahead. Okay. Should I have a question? What's the question? Joel? I'm really not. I'm here more interested in what you think about taxes than what you want me to talk about. But what's your question? Are you? Are you gonna tell us who your radio audience we're going to go for after the debate. I may. I'm not sure you know my my my decision is to who I vote for remains a private. I did say that in 2016. I voted for neither I if I do decide to disclose that I'll disclose it. And explain why. But again, I do. I don't think as a talk show host. I am obligated, although I'm sure people would be curious. I may keep you in suspense. So now let's talk about Donald Trump's taxes. Okay, Three things they don't really kill about are concerned about I'm going to vote for Trump anyhow. In the three things I don't kill about taxes. I don't kill. He has five extramarital affairs. I don't care if he's a crook like Richard Nixon. I can't support the anti Democratic Christian by the platform. Well, I know where you stand, Joe. I appreciate your candor and your your brevity. Thank you so much. Appreciate your comments. Have a great night. Going to go next to Chris in Pembroke, Chris. Next on nights I go right ahead. Dan. I just wanted to say My opinion is they beaten tax horse since before he was even president? So I don't think it's going to waver much on many people's decision. On. You know, I don't think it's goingto work for against him that all that much. Well, you know, it's interesting. I would love to hear from some people tonight who was surprised by The New York Times article. I mean, I think We all knew that his that there's an audit. He's admitted to that. Ah, on that generally with us and with the knot, and obviously there's a dispute. We now know pretty much what the dispute is over so You know, I welcome The Times article. I feel that The Times article His is a genuine article, unlike the Atlantic magazine was based on four anonymous sources. I wish the Times would release his taxes, so we all could look at him. Yeah, absolutely. And I and I think I think it's Just coincidence that they're doing this right before the base of the field of the bay, So I don't think it's coincidence in that regard, Chris, I think it's Oh, yeah, not going for it. To the point, you know? Yeah, it is anything but a coincidence. My opinion, exactly. Chris. Thank you so much. Appreciate it. Talk soon. Okay. Thank you. Let's go next to Ah, That's a memo mess. Emo Massimo Massimo in New Hampshire. Massimo, How are you? Good evening, Dan. First time caller longtime. Well, first I'll get you a little round of applause. I don't know if Andrew Zabel to hit the that's from my virtual studio audience, You know, this day of golf. This morning. I I appreciate that. A Zafar is the question about the taxes. Why? Guess what bothers me the most is first of all. No, it doesn't bother me that He paid X amount of dollars. But what they do is they try to over simplify the whole process to make it sound like he pays as much as somebody that earns $9 an hour and that's the equivalent of hit their annual taxes and that that's bothersome. Deceiving, misleading to the public. I mean, he obviously has multiple companies employs thousands of people, and it's already been addressed on this call that he pays state, local and payroll taxes and everything else. But at the end of the year if he has a bad year And it's company loses money. He's using the current tax laws to take current tax deductions and what's left on the table. If the company doesn't make any money is what he owes in federal taxes, so know that this is not a problem at all for me. And I and I'm and I'm shocked that people are are being overwhelmed by this thought. Well, I guess my reaction great great points. But my reaction is that you probably Understand tax law. Better than the average person. I'd like to think I understand that better than the average person. But I have no no concept of of how complicated his tax returns must be. I have to assume that his tax returns hundreds, if not thousands of pages, and I would imagine so have a team of CPAs and tax attorneys. Who are looking, you know the recent, you know, Case law, you know the various regulations that have approved by Congress so again, if he if he has cheated on his taxes, he should be indicted..
Times' tax story is talker, but perceptions mostly hold

Microsoft Bid for TikTok Rejected
"Microsoft says its bid for Tiktok was rejected by China. they they announced according to Microsoft officials and other people involved in negotiations. The Chinese company Tick Tock rejected Microsoft's offer. Boom. So, Oracle is the last man standing. I should point to a New York Times article from a few days ago tick tock bid highlights Oracle's public embrace of trump. So So I think the the stars are lining up for Larry Ellison's Oracle to own. Tiktok what they would do with it or whether they would be good stewards of it is not an issue obviously for anybody except maybe the. Clay is that they're just going to reject everything because they don't want US company to buy them. Great. Yeah. I mean they announced I think they had hoped the Chinese government announced. that you bite dance the company This morning told the US tick tock rhythm is under no circumstances for sale. So? I think that was probably the hope. That? That would put the Kibosh on the deal. Entirely this is from the South China. Morning Post.
A Critique of Dallas Buyer's Club
"Let's. Let's Talk About Dallas Buyers Club. I first and foremost all the triggers. Goddamn because everything you thought you knew about this movie you were right and then there's more. There's The the TRANSPHOBIA is there from the characters. It's enacted characters but it's also just that kind of trans-phobia where it's tucked under. Oh, it's actually homophobia but that's because they don't know what to do with someone who presents in a way that is not stereotypical. To one gender or another. and. Yes. So look up triggers for this movie. There are so many that I don't even feel like sitting down and listing them but look them up before you continue to consume this podcast and before you decide to watch that movie. That said, had you either? Have you seen this movie before we went to the podcast first time? For a first time on that radio to. See what I did there. On brand very unbranded. Yeah. It was my first time too. I definitely knew it. As you said, for all the reasons that I knew, and then there were more reasons that I was glad I did until now. Oh Yeah so This movie I have to say because I tried to as much as I'm trashing it as much as I'm like Oh this all this I really wanted to like this movie I went in wanting to like it I remember talking to a friend about this movie because I refused to see it. So I was like, why are people praising jared leto wire people praising his portrayal of Now, I can't remember the name of Rayon why and I actually had to coax it out of a friend because. This was a friend that I respected their opinion on and they basically said they were like, well, you don't actually want to know you wanna be mad and it's like, no I respect your opinion i. am asking you why people care what is it about this helped me and what this friend said to me was that the portrayal of someone who is going through a having aids being HIV positive and then having AIDS, and then dying from another disease which. It, it was the thing that really drew this friend of mine into the character and into the world of this film and as much as. We are going to talk about a lot of the specifics now having watched it. I respect that opinion. Even though I did not get the same thing from this movie. At least from from Rayon and that's really mean I also did not grow up like I grew up as a child during the AIDS crisis I did not know a lot going on but at the same time. The movie in my opinion the movie itself. Didn't do a great job with ray on. But I really dug the way that they dealt with. Woodruff Matthew. mcconaughey character in the first act. Yeah To to. Put My cards on the table for we continue. To very specific misconceptions or like nervous conceptions but two very specific things that we're going to my mind when I started watching the movie. Deborah really softened a lot of it for me, which was one. The last movie that I've seen that was in relation to the AIDS crisis was the film adaptation of Rent. which was the worst movie that's life. I it's just. Sorry And the others conception is that I didn't realize that it was made in twenty thirteen I thought like watching it. It felt like it was like an early two thousands movie in house can be like well. Okay like Even. The Straits don't really get chanced stuff I. It was like a good attempts to try to like bring more color to the table metaphorically speaking. But it's a twenty thirteen. I don't know like. I mean at times article didn't come out yet. It's just it's just weirder and it's also like. That film strikes very early two thousands and I'm not like sinophile so I could be completely dead wrong on this, but it just felt. Like You know way older movie than it actually ended up being. So. And that. Up Sorry and then I guess the third conception. Sorry. The secret third one was that I actually was trying to give him the benefit of the doubt because as soon as I found out that it was like historical like a history piece because runway was a real person. As like, Oh, well then you know if they had to deal with a real life trans person like they're they're dead in the water like you know they're not going to handle that well. But no round is is a real. She was made for the movie. So cool. Great. Love that for us. So. Yeah. I wonder because Silas one of the things that you had mentioned that you had focused on when talking about the movie was a lot more of a real life historical things that were going on and about the real life of what was happening. Can you talk a little bit about that? Yes so Aside, from knowing about, you know sort of the kerfluffle about jared leto playing the part and hearing a little bit about that when the movie came out the other thing that I really had a bee in my bonnet about is the fact that Ron Woodruff was not straight. And he did talk about long clearly had some stuff but. They just. Changed him to be straight and altered his character quite a bit and watching it. It's so clear to me that they were like, how do we make this the straight male hero anti hero type that the straight people will come see the movie for? And so that to me like before, we even get to any issues of transphobia homophobia of that in the Bi phobia that really just made me now it becomes this sort of like. The straight guy in the hero of a crisis that you know certainly straight people and all people belong to this lots of. It was but it was primarily focused on the queer. Community. And sort of start off before you even have a chance to give the film the benefit of the doubt with that erasure just really for me. Through me completely out of it it was I wasn't able to come to the film really with. A kind of the I at that point.

"times article" Discussed on WBSM 1420
"This New York Times article. It's quite comprehensive. It's called error and fraud at issue as absentee ballot absentee voting rises. It was published on October 6 2012. I'm sure that they would not publish a similar article because it documents all the concerns that President Trump Has laid out He writes that the flaws of absentee voting raised questions about the quote. Most elementary promise it's a democracy. The right to have one vote counted. He writes. Voting by mail is now common enough and problematic enough. His word, not mine that election experts say there have been multiple elections in which no one can say with confidence which candidate Was the deserved winner. Talked about the 2000 election how many absentee ballots were cast? Listen to this in the last president, election presidential election. 35 point We're talking about the 2000 election now. 35.5 million voters. I said 2000 election. Last presidential election, there would have been came out in 2000 and 12 so there would've been 2000 and eight That's what he's referring to. 35.5 million voters requested absentee ballots on ly 27.9 million absentee ballots were counted. According to a study by a political scientist at M I T. He calculated that of their total, 3.9 million valets requested by voters never reached them. Another 2.9 million ballots received by voters did not make it back to election officials. And that election officials rejected about 800,000 ballots. That suggests an overall failure rate as much as 21%. Lickle Sciences said. Quote. If 20% or even 10% of voter stood in line on election day, and they were turned away.

He's not wrong. Quote. Republicans are, in fact more likely than Democrats to vote absentee. In the 2008 general election. In Florida, 47% of absentee voters were Republican, vs 36% Democrats He also writes this quote. There is bipartisan consensus that voting by mail, whatever its impact is more easily abused than other forms in a 2005 report signed by Jimmy Carter and James Baker, who served as secretary of state under the first President George Bush. The Commission on Federal Election Reform concluded quote after tea balance remained the largest source of potential voter fraud. End of quote. He also writes that Election administrators have a shorthand name for the central weakness of voting by mail. It's called Granny Farming. The problem.

Twitter Will Be Fun Today - The College Kids Who Hacked Into Twitter
"Today's guests. His Hip Awan CEO of Afani. Secure and private cell phone service locum his Heeb. Thank you Laura for home. You'll show. You were one of the investigators in touch with the young people who hacked twitter last week and gain control of prominent accounts, including those of Joe. Biden Obama Elon Musk and others as well as those of crypt companies like coin, base and finance, and when they had control those accounts, they were soliciting bitcoin from twitter users. How did you get in touch with the hackers? So Laura be in like. four-time itself, so then after I was so pissed off that angry that I said I need to solve this problem, and so I've entered into a form that relates how they have those accounts holiday getting pretty much all the ring of how they operate so. When you say that they had had your twitter account, nor they have my Sim Sark four times. Okay, and when you say Sim, swaps just described that in case, listeners does up. Does improper pretty much. What happened is like someone will take the form so the underground market like think about Ebay, but like I knew democracy with information. So you said your name, your information social security number your call logs your life, your life, location or anything on you. If I say hey, I need to find out for Laura Shane telephone number, and they'll give me telephone number will give me a call loss to give you. An everything comes through telephone numbers of numbers unique, and then if I say. Say Hey. I need to take the phone number 'cause I need so they will just prophet abuse him that I control, and I need to pay them few hundred dollars now. Your formula not work anymore because I had control of Sim card, so then I use that telephone number to get into a g mail, facebook and twitter, so if you go on twitter, new likely rescinded to email our number. If it's telephone number you've got. Someone's adopted very common technique deployed across US for a long time. So. The twitter hack twitter said that their employees had been socially engineered, and that's how these hackers gained control the systems. Are you saying that? Some twitter employees have their account. Sim swapped like how how does that you or Simspon tried? These people relate to the twitter Hack Greg? You wanted to ask me like how to get in touch with them so I'm trying to understand. You, that of analysis himself, so started going into the industry into this form than trying to see how they operate and to Dodd funny, so which will provide the made acadia that probably that cannot be Simpson's. That's what we did an offer that. VINCI START GETTING customers. Have you would actually getting a lot of attempts to do so? You would getting Dempsey pretty much every week that someone prior to himself or customer, trying to like hack into our system and mend the failed. I got in contact David Mayhew call, they would email method you and they will do all kinds of attacks. You know they'll try to let pen to pen tests. The everything did and obviously in one of the cases restocked immunity stopping messing around it right I know what you're up to. And after I got in touch with him to signal and author that the lake. Not I won't say that become a friend, but I told them why you're doing this. Thank you know you should not do this multiple hackers and they said okay. If you don't have anything to do pretty much, does it okay? Why don't you get a job? He said job, and then they start feeding the all information to proved at. Legit than a lot of information and how I was getting information from a lot of talk of the vote. And when it all this happened that you got in touch with him and had it happened late four five months ago. Okay They were diverging to me not just for this hot, but for other purposes to ride like a kid discount. Lot of databases beach everyday, so they wanted to see that a hey. If I'm interesting in the database, just wanted to work pretty much. is not money. It's also about ego that they wanNA prove something that they would do something so. So Mike Context for not hacking, but they'll be into the songs that they had access to. That follows A. Up I didn't want to. Excessive today were passing me. Hey, today. This is for sale to do sports on tomorrow. This person's so on the deal stood attack. I got a message that will be fun today, and when this message I thought he'd be like a distributor barks. Like scam scams, and but after why? That's all the kind. We got attacked ten. Finance Accounting Noble at depth one time. I taught that it's just a third party API like you know you have like you know where your schedule. The in everything I thought that may be compromised, and that's how they got author. Riley said No. We have everything. A screen chart I tweeted screen shot, and after that is blue. Well and so, who are these people? who were the people involved in the actual twitter hack? The difficult to identity like frankly I don't know I can speculate, but obviously because someone security and privacy I don't want to speculate but I can tell you wanting like college. Kids are maybe like someone between eight, eighty, twenty, one, twenty, two, and they are video gamers. They'd metaphor armed, and they found fascinating for them. Dislike a game like you go into video game on you killing you do stuff for them. It's like that. They, probably living in some way or radio patterns right now in basement. Who does not even know anything? and. They just do it for fun. Obviously, money's there, too, but most of fun for them is just a today. And so originally. The way you got in touch with them was they were targeting these different cell phone accounts, and what does motivation and taking over the different cell phone accounts so for account you can actually to when people take account, they can actually destroy you financially emotionally ended up recently, though by financial I can say they can get into your county bank accounts ticket by Tiptoe through that they can buy a lot of levels of securities financially they can do. obviously going to facebook in an email to, and then they donor all information from your facebook, and then they start blackmailing you that. Hey, likely when a lot you have done this like you know you have this. And you have to pay me this information out there and a lot of people would have to pay them the money because they don't pay the money. They looted operation right so and then third party. They just become Parson Mike is the word processing me. blender used to take my county new. They cannot get anything, but they wanted to talk to me. Just fun for them like people. Some people are sick. Like how did they pick you out of all the different people that they could torture also the league, if not just me like everyday hundreds of people to get them soft, though I'm just one of them on average, every second medical become victim of since up, not himself but cybercrimes so. But I had the impression that this was primarily targeting crypto currency people, but you're saying it's any bundled nor I think eighty percent of people who was himself to an entrepreneur L.! And the new in the cases of those people is it like personal vendettas that they're trying to? You can make more money by a hacking Lord cell than anything else you know. is one thing but Lloyd is like one number one target Loyd and has professionals league doctor medical doctor then. In Lord other number one targets in suffers, and what is the motivation for targeting lawyers Don. Money don't happen. How do they monetize that Yeah, so I tell you doctors, basically busy less tech, savvy and rich. It's that easy to find out any doctor information. You can find out who the best doctor in the city and you consume. Stop Him. And once you get into that account, you can transfer money between accounts who can be that people have been? Going into the count, Simpson calling the bank making via transfer, and then just checking accounts. That's pretty common. For for doctors to clinics have a lot of money. If you'RE GONNA clinic, instead he did even like five hundred hundred million dollar distorted the front because Alaska. Election for them. Okay, so let's go back to the twitter hack. They were some names that were identified of people who are involved these names. In The New York Times article that quoted you as a source one was kirk. There were some other people ll and ever so anxious. Who were these people? And how did they know each other? So they don't. Know the Best Birdie. They just hang out on rooms like chatting channels lake similar people on developed talked with you. The pirates channels. We had people a go if they WANNA have information to the document industry for finding information. If I want someone associated Gordon dissipates on one. Don't get call for these people trade information. And you asked about like a leg. Imagine your lawyer and you are fighting for my open kiss. We begin go to the website by that long since he will. They are who they're talking to the day can. Make some delays on them. That's one thing but other than that. These people are just a game as they would play like you know different video games and kick the die, who was basically a source of the rate industry rock says they'll be extra agents, and they are in room for longtime and David. Obviously you want you want something you don't trust the new guy. The new guy who is basically the main culprit punching the entity because multiple reasons, but the main guidance, the just which had A. Reputation. If you say you want a username of Laura at Laura, Shannon inactive. You may not trust kick, so you can do this. Middle Diane Tell Them Hey, can you hold the money for because you have a good relation? Because like Ebid forums generally have a petition systems. You know so then you ve into this guy like you know every inch it He went to care. Concur depended he the credit employees but I. Don't think he was employees. And, then he gave him the concert start building. So this is just a middleman. He was just broken deals. You tell them what you want. He was just keep his car and transfer the money. The is completed that fall. And so so kirk was was saying that he was a twitter employees, but as you said, you don't think that he was, and he was essentially selling valuable twitter accounts, and if people didn't trust, Kirk, they would use ever so anxious as their middleman to get the different twitter handles that they wanted. Is that what happened? That's correct. Good Gig, only unharmed on in July of. July it was very recently. that. He actually came so obviously not trust someone admit. That soon. July seventh in the New York Times article are. Limited okay, but all right so but ever so anxious. How to longer reputation and. And that was who people are transacting with. And so then. How did BITCOIN come into this? All. On these things happen through Bitcoins, so the way it started was they were selling. This twitter handles four bitcoin and then later. How did the scam change? So I. Personally is what I personally think. That kid was in touch with the employees who was giving these accounts. For a few thousand dollars. And then. Either bribed him. Architects. Social Engineering Him. Legs because like hey can do. This is my. This is purely my speculation that you're working for so long. He warned the trust. Any may have said Hey, can you log in forbid I wanNA see how it looks like something that he made it something so the guy is pasta on. Hey, just do it, but don't do anything crazy. You Know Butt kicked. Decide Okay, man I can just go on or can also go online with I can do it I can. Can also go on like you know. All those accounts crazy. That's what I okay, but you're just speculating. You don't have any proof that or or do you know what? I don't have any proof of that I don't approve. Have critic probably do it? And Kirk? Is probably a guy called coup, which is on a farm for a long time, so he speculated that he someone that was in the industry for wide, but not. Approved that. Kicked it, but from all the action than everything it all points to cook. Irene so in a moment we're gonNA. Talk a little bit more about what happened. Exactly I, in sight, twitter and scam, but First a quick word from the sponsors who make this show possible. How much in fees are you paying?

Back to my conversation with his Heeb Awan. So, we don't know exactly how. Kirk got into twitter's internal systems. However Once. He or she did then what'd he do or or she do with their power? So. Kirk than they went to buy I think. Start with by notes I'm coin base. And the see your finance and he made it account Egypt first of all. What did it was did with other? Account. Okay, which means when you log in, it asks you to do a second type of security, which is hopefully. If you're in the crypto space, you have used something like Hugo, authenticate or key, and you're not using text message based second factor authentication. Where they sent a code your phone because otherwise if he gets swaps than than having no. Buyer so. Removed that and then keep going good thing. They added wall a secondary second. You know Autodata so now. I'll give example like you have my username seep, so they moved to a FE, and they're also removed. Jane, Email. And then they. Did possible reset. So the new email guard, the chain deposited garden the account. and. tweeted whatever they wanted. Well, and what were they tweeting? So, they were tweeting that you know. About Co. Ed Nineteen I believe like you know because of Covid, we like helping people. I don't remember the wording. Health Has Something and they said Back. And this is video any comments in YouTube. Actually they were so good that frankly sometime I get like you know Oh my God like the able to make it like a secondary thing. That's real you know and like, but this happens pretty commonly, and and it's happening for almost two years now i. It, really is the kind of thing where people think it's real I honestly. Had created a question for you, which is who are the people who are savvy enough to own bitcoin and know how to send it, but not savvy enough to spot. What to me seems like an obvious scam. Actually went on the Internet and are tweeted out this thing same thing I said like who are those people who can have sophisticated enough to buy Bitcoin, but knowledge to. Send. Bitcoin but I think leap Dick's everything. Like I agree people think okay. Let's give it a chance. You know it's like a lottery ticket. You know people may be, but they think what if this is true and other than that. If you like an must happening there, actually flaunted, be efforts on twitter. All the time with people are donating money on twitter, but they don't ask for anything they say hey, can you give me your Alfred Egland who this every day, so he will dollars to off fifty dollars for every person everyday. You'll say. Retreat this. I'll give you this money. So this happens right now and obviously As hit audible, read like you know when viewed come in people, people forget everything that you know. We have so many Ponzi scheme like so many scattered that happened that exist today could if I come to unity Laura investment scheme, which is a pretty good you know. He hit all the MACHIDA. But it only gives you five percent. You may not listen to that. Say Hey, Lord the Child who may tennis money tomorrow. You may skip everything. Cocaine is thousand and ten dollars tomorrow. Okay I'll take the risk from doing that. Hopefully I'm sure my listeners are savvy enough to know if it sounds too good to be true. But people do that I. Think I have estimated that around like maybe I. Just in this journal given us cam like. He put a lot of tens of millions of dollars and well not last week, but no, not over time overtime. Yeah, yeah, we'll be sending money, so there are enough food. I guess yeah over I mean for last week. The hackers did net about a little over thirteen bitcoin, which was about one hundred twenty thousand dollars, although analysts said that about twenty, thousand of it seems to have come from a suspicious address that they actually think controlled by the hackers to kind of make it look like this was legit and people were actually sending money. But then also by the way they could have netted more. However, Cuevas said that it did prevent more than one thousand customers from sending about two hundred and eighty thousand dollars worth of Bitcoin to the twitter hackers so oriented, so let's talk a little bit also about just what happened in twitter which was? Twitter blog posts. Hackers a targeted. Thirty accounts for forty five of those they reset the password and sent tweets from those accounts for eight of them. They actually downloaded that counts data, and then for thirty sixty legitimate direct message inbox, including one elected official from the Netherlands, and it was who. What do you think they could do with such information? I think it's A. Black, man that I've been talking to you about what happened with sin sopping. Let's think about it if you have first all that fool Phoolan that why didn't put? It wasn't like planned. I don't believe it was just like in the move in the heat of happened. BANDAIDS slaves. They clearly guy who just got drunken pretty might do everything but I think if you have access to like anyone, social media, proper social media like I have been I've received. Messages. And I but I don't believe that I think we have forged around. Believe the electoral, so, but if you have someone should media that maybe confidential information that can be misused by Stacey when leg if you do about it on dedic messages, a you know that's not confident that even with the journalist visceral broads. You know so I. Don't know who the information was. What fast, but that's video very very concerning and I believe this may happen on facebook or other social media from his. Because to same. Attack Factor. Yeah I definitely think that this is. One of those cases where it makes you want to just use encrypted social messaging APPS. Such as like signal or something, maybe what's up? So, let's just also talk a little bit about what we said before about how the hackers were able to remove two factor authentication on these accounts. Well, actually what they did I was. They changed the email address. And then the chain Laras Oh, actually bid on a there was A. There was an email. There was a blog post by somebody who had the at six twitter account, and they said they believed that the hackers change the address, but that when that happened, it did not send a notification to the original email address, but not I don't know if this person was surmising, you know six hundred interest in history, those belong to a hacker. Their the community of Hackers Gobi Twenty six hundred. That's like a court for hackers right. Not a quarterback, just like community for hackers and you were the hacker who ended up homeless anywhere. They will do attack into I think he would to. And he went into multiple you as homeless, but he was a hacker. And oxygen community belong to sixty name. Is this secretly off? I believe his name. And, but yes, but I think the first drift was removed and then. moved. To the letter. Control of it now thought it was the reverse, but either way. In Like for any of us who are in the crypto space who have been? Keeping up with our security and using things like Google. or UB and avoiding. Text message based to a or or any kind of to a based on our phone number. What? Can we take away from this like? Is there any advice that you have for Crypto? People on how they can protect themselves if the services that we use have loopholes like this. Let's not that'll be biased in obviously you know. Will. Finding here, but that's what we do, right. We work, but a lot. Actually I am surprised at how many a compromise them security argue out stocking some customer yesterday and they do You know an extra seat is probably the most I can tell you I know. We are making like a faces, but at same part exit. She's most prominent used offer manager for probably ninety ninety nine percent of the word. What would you recommend instead? Use a password manager, anything manager pretty much everything in the top five six. It stood, you know. Don't cheat on family plan. out on like those like a caveman. This company go with a better company. Even if you don't go the final leg, that's fine at least hell better company like Dourthouse I'm plan because no fan mace. You make you very vulnerable to now you're putting your own life on risk, but everyone who is in the time is. You know and the third party. Don't give out your telephone. Number molasses everywhere. You know like. Don't go to like you. Know have different email address if you want to. And you let you. At Google. Authentic get off your. There's something at one time I have statistics, said ninety five percent of people who are like major changes. Do not have to a fait. Sms I'm talking more to a and I think ninety nine percent of those are what you estimates to say. The people who've been additives Everyday I have started I deal with at least two or three people who get up everyday and came and we had some of the to affair, and I can get into that lot of people into the spark that they were not believe enough not to change it. please. Don't please don't be those people, but I can tell you like I've spent people and I said do this. Man How much time did it like five minutes six league. Logistics you Donald and APP, you know. have to familiar face. You know if you are very cautious, taken for a number, but I can tell you that Khomeini would make this mistake. Ordering will end and it you know, and in the end I did lose industry learn. That's was part. There was still use the same SMS to a fait. The dating did not happen to them. Again happened again. Because if it happens to once, you become more, you know your motorcycle getting out again. If they have found something and something, they just do for fun, and and you know what I because obviously I'm. Biased in a way that the. Customer. Time I've been a victim four times a feed Logar they can. What would you do? Please please please setup. SMS elected more music episodes into gear and please get family plan these I. Know You're saving their ten twenty dollars per months, but in the end you know if you call it a, it's like insurance. You can live without insurance to. But like you know. The one day you need insurance when you need it.
Journalists of Color
"Before the interviews I wanNA share my theory. For why all of this exploded for journalists of Color Right now? It goes back a few years. So many of us went from covering the first black president to covering Donald Trump. And ever, since trump came down that escalator, announcing his campaign back in Twenty fifteen, when he denounced Mexicans as drug traffickers rapist. When he was that he would build a wall at the border and that Mexico will pay for it. Those journalists were told to avoid using words like racist or lie to describe some of trump's worse behavior. That kind of self censorship, especially on race for a lot of us, it became untenable after we had to cover the death of George Floyd and report on that video of a black man, being choked to death for eight minutes. On top of that we are now dealing with the coronavirus pandemic, which is laying bare racial inequities across this country. And Corinthian has given a lot of us time to sit and think. Notice what's going on in the world and in our lives and in our newsrooms? You have black journalists and other journalists of color who think of themselves as truth seekers in the same way that their white colleagues, too, but very often when they tell the truth about racism when they tell the truth about. Bright, white supremacy. They're labeled as activist. Highs! They dared to bring their blackness across the newsroom threshold. PSORIATIC McDonald's has been thinking a lot about race and the news. So I asked her as a black journalist in this moment. What does she want to see change so I would say what I want is actual structural change within newsroom leadership? I do not want the equivalent of painting black lives matter on a street in yellow letters, but in a newsroom. It's visible. By that doesn't really solve anything when it comes to pay discrepancies between. White male journalists and black female journalist who do the same job have the same level of experience and one is making thirty thousand dollars a year more than the other. The other thing is that. You cannot have. Newsroom leadership that is completely made up of six Cheddar straight white men. Even. Under straight white women. Zicklin or gender straight Whiteman that power needs to be distributed more equitably. You know the other thing died. I want to see I wanNA see US cover. Race honestly. right? Race isn't just something that black people, experience or something that non white experience, attempting that everyone experience and says and so. There needs to be a baseline of literacy rate when it comes to how we talk about race with an America how it operates within American history, and how that informs. President and what world. News media has played in that way. We have to consider that. The last time that we had a pandemic, the nineteen eighteen flu pandemic. We need to recognize that. The paper of record in Chicago the Chicago Tribune. Is Basically scapegoating black people who are fleeing the American south, basically saying Oh half a million darkies are basically invading Chicago. If that's objectivity as not the kind of objectivity that I want to participate in them. Yeah, yeah, I WANNA get personal a little bit You ended up being quoted in New York Times. Article about this reckoning talking about how you didn't have a great time at the Washington Post. You've tweeted about your experience as a black woman in newsrooms. What does this reckoning meant for you? And what have you been trying to get off your chest and this moment about your experience? In some of the newsroom's that we've been talking about my hope for this reckoning. is that. There is not one more class of you know young. Ernest! Twenty two year old coming out of journalism school I'm who basically have to go through this really damaging gauntlet. We're constantly sort of questioning yourself and your own worth and I think there are a lot of really talented journalists who have been driven from the field. Because at some point, they feel like they have to make a choice between their own mental health. Or being journalist. And they just self-preservation and I cannot blame them. and that is really a shame, because think about the people that those journalists now think about the stories that they could have told. The access they could have had picked the access to walk into certain spaces at their white colleagues cannot exactly and you know one of the ways, and this is not the only way that this is important, but one of the ways that this is important is. We need them to trust us. Our job is to tell their stories and to tell them accurately and to tell them fairly. And if people are are always getting pushed out the folks who might actually be able to empathize with them who know where they're coming from right I? There's a quote from their lake when I fall where she basically expresses the you know, she's probably the only person who covered public housing who's actually lived in public housing? That, yeah, that is. Expertise right that is. Valuable knowledge so I just I want us to be able to practice our profession with humanity. Yeah, and also it's like in this moment where it seems like more than ever before. At least in my lifetime, there is such a deficit of trust. Americans don't trust institutions. They don't trust journalism. They don't trust facts. Worst argument about whether or not mask can prevent the spread of Corona virus like in this environment if newsrooms don't act in fix some of this stuff. is going to create more mistrust in the media and these news outlets will become less relevant in a moment in which I would argue. They are needed more than ever before. Yes, and you know the thing is is and I've said this repeatedly at that American journalism does have a credibility crisis. The the credibility crisis that we have I think. Actually bears a lot of similarities to. Our current sort of Voter disenfranchisement problem. Being. In Journalism, we have not spent enough time. with the very same folks who are often disenfranchised when it comes to media coverage as well right. And when we think about the press and freedom of the press is an instrument of democracy we have to think about. enfranchising everyone, we have to think about making sure that they do find us credible. The folks. If they look at the newspaper, even look at a website or they listen to the radio and their conclusion is. That these entities are not telling the truth about them in their lives and held their lives are. For them yeah for them. That's a credibility issue for us. Yeah we can fix. It failed them. That means that. We have to develop far better relationships with folks who have historically been shunned or shut out of district of media coverage are only allowed to participate in very limited ways. You know I still very much believe in that adage, the journalism exist to comfort the afflicted and afflict comfortable. Thanks again to riot, not at McDonald's the culture writer for the undefeated and also this year. She was nominated a pilot sir. My mind. I wanted to hear from other journalists of color about their newsroom experiences. And they wrote in. Here if you, my name is Lavi Cima Guy side. I'm a naturalized citizen who came to this country as a young child. I worked at a bare he a newspaper for a long time and have fond memories of my time there. I had mostly white editors, and in fact, I've only had one non white supervisor in my over two decades in journalism. My name is John. Sepulvado, I mixed. I have Mexican Irish indigenous and Black Ancestry I worked in public media for fifteen years. There are tons of horror stories. There was the white woman editor who asked me if I like dog-fighting because she quote hurt. Might People like dogfighting? There was another white woman editor told me to smile more around the office because I quote have dark features and those dark features, scared herself and other white women around the office. One time a headline I, wrote for one of my own stories, led to a newsroom wide, meeting an emotional one, where a bunch of US had to persuade top editors to let us call the president's racism what it is! The most frustrating part was that I and others had to explain to our colleagues. Why our voices were important. And partly because they reflected the communities we covered. argued. Repeat, a thousand more stories like that. But at. A point I realized. That no matter what I did no matter how good I was no matter how hard I worked. I would always be seen. As something that is not. White. And my mobile was the leave the industry. All right time for a break. When we come back, we will hear from Latina, trailblazer who refused to leave the news business. Instead. She started her own media company to tell the stories that she wanted to tell. Hey another reminder asking you all to fill out that survey for us. Okay, it is anonymous.

School will start off our course in economics within workout for your brain how to decide what something newly costs for? Planet money from, NPR. People still find it really interesting salmon like I'm like no. No I. I was the first Latina in the newsroom at NPR ever to step foot. WHO WASN'T CLEANING IT? That was me right that that was that. Was this Latina? That is Maria. She's had a long career in media, not just here NPR but also at CNN NPS in two thousand ten. She founded her own company for total media. And she has a memoir. It's called once. I was you that comes out in September, but most of you probably know Maria. As the host of a very long running public radio show turned podcast from NPR and through media. It's like new USA mighty. Hossack Latino USA has been around since the early nineties. It is attributed by NPR. which is why you hear NPR in the credits, but that will be changing USA is moving. As distributor. It means nothing's GonNa Change for you. Our listener that our audience is going to get way way way bigger. We're very excited. Announcement might have been confusing for listeners, but don't worry like. She said you'll still be able to hear the show. But the Journal of Color, especially in public radio that move meant that NPR was losing a hugely influential show dedicated to covering Latino stories in the US. And from its founding NPR has been well bad on race. More than seventy percent of NPR's newsroom is white and of the sources you here on NPR's air, those voices they are more than eighty percent white. People of Color who work in public media? We have been saying for years. Fix this including Maria Hosa. We're asking the question. Are you listening? Are you hearing? And that his own ready a power dynamic that is wrong. This notion is the assumption that they the they will always have the power I. Ask Maria what Latino USA leaving NPR means for this network, but I I asked her about blazing trails. One could see your path to be one of color who found her own company as a shining success, but one could also see your path as proving that the conventional spaces in media can accommodate of voice like you the way they should you know like. I'm so proud of what you're doing, but also the fact that you have to make your own production company shows at the NPR's and the PBS's and the CNN in many ways. Don't get it and can't help people like you tell the stories that you need to tell. I was thinking about that as I was thinking about our interview Sam because. My husband calls me Aguirre, a warrior, and then as I was thinking about our conversation, Sam. I was like well. That's great i. like that, but you know what I don't want. Journalists of color to have to be warriors at into order to be able to work as To work as journalists of Contians, who can bring their entire cells into the news room? Who are going to be seen who are going to not only be seen and heard but actually. Put into positions of power to be the ones who are listening and making the decisions about. Yeah, we want that story on the front page and the headline is going to say that exactly. I want you you know everyone has been using it. Everyone's been going to twitter sharing their reckoning story, the slight the knocked in that promotion. The being told you can't do this do that. Give me one of your reckoning stories from your career when I when I come to this country, I'm born in Mexico. My whole family's born in Mexico. We're raised on south side of Chicago. You know sixties and seventies, but as Mexican immigrants we also understood the essential nature of journalism and American independent journalism and so. My father was watching. Meet the press every Sunday and we were watching the today show and we watched sixty minutes, and because of the fact that it was so American in holding people accountable and I was like that's what journalism is so long. Story Short is many years later actually a decade ago go to sixty minutes when I'm out of work and needed a job actually and. They basically like look, can you Can you come back and talk to us? When one of the old white guys get secret is really and I, said and I just remember like. Like am I supposed to laugh? It's funny. Is that a joke as being? and. As we do in the media's people of Color, 'cause we're really good at laughing things off. Like. Yeah. Banter you know the the the the the we're so smart. On. Exactly Racism! Exactly. And I got into the subway at fifty ninth street onto my apartment in Harlem and I cried on the train. and. I was just like, but I am not. You know I'm knocking to let this take me down. And that was the moment that I decided to create food. Media Winds Rams history. Takes over Latino, USA. And Expands Latino USA grows the show and let the USA's audience twenty seven years in. Is in a continual upward trajectory. You love to see it. As I. Want to ask more about what needs to happen. We are in this moment now. Where so many journalists coming forward with their stories? But it's still unclear what newsroom leaders will actually do to fix this stuff you have been on all sides of media for profit nonprofit. Give me like a checklist of the big three or four things that mass media should do right now to effectively respond to the issues raised in this reckoning. Feel like this is a moment to be having that difficult conversation, which is pushing this reckoning that we're talking about to another level. I'm going. Give you an example, Sam it brings me joy, it brings me no joy to have to ask white men in senior editorial positions how they consider my role as a Mexican immigrant woman journalist. In relation to a president who insults every single one of those things that I do? And and And basis a lot of that on his white supremacy. Which is very challenging word to even use in our newsrooms right, but yeah. I don't feel comfortable saying it. I want you to feel uncomfortable having to answer that question. Because his white supremacy does not impact you in the way, it impacts me, and I am a journalist just like you. I am an equal journalist just like you so now. You helped me to figure out. Harmon handle that because that that impacts our might quote unquote objectively, you have to be able to recognize that you do not have an ownership of activity or an ownership of the media or an ownership of public media, or it's not yours to share yeah. Did any of the issues we've discussed about. In diversity and Unfair situations that journals of have to deal within this industry. Did those factor into your business decision. To leave NPR ex. Look I've had you know NPR's my family? IF NPR calls I'm going to say when you I was absolutely and Bureau Sam he's my family. You know we hung out once, but he's. He's my brother. Because we're digesting PR so NPR's my family Mi. Familia was my first job. But You know I started a company. And I have a team of very savvy business and media executives journalists. And when they said look, we have an opportunity here in in a competitive marketplace A. Somebody PR X.. Who wants to really go big? Yeah, I will say you know they are all of these. Underground email channels and slack channels and discussion boards were journalists of color are coming together to talk about all these issues and there's been a lot of chatter about your show. What says about NPR yeah? Why am I so disconnected? Oh my God. I thought I. Thought I was like connected because I'm on twitter and I got a fat. And what folks have been saying? People who love your show Oh my goodness. They're saying well. This speaks to the larger problems. NPR has always had with content may for people of Color. They don't market it enough. They don't support it enough. You have these program. Directors at various stations put a show like yours on at not great hours. This is the stuff that people are saying. Do you I mean like to the extent that you can elaborate on it, you know. Did you feel like NPR? Neglected or didn't promote enough your type of show. So of these issues at play with the race and diversity in space like NPR. Again. Let New USA right now is growing an audience at kind of extraordinary numbers I think we're one of the few public radio programs or previously distributed by NPR. That is growing an audience at these numbers. And so the fact that. We made this decision. Says everything about. WHAT NPR. Kind of thinks. About letting USA. Now having said that I don't know you know I. Don't know the internal finances at NPR. Maybe NPR's is is really facing a a real financial challenges that I'm not privy to. And so you know, but but when you're thinking about AH, show, that has this kind of. Audience Commitment There was a point not long ago. When one of your colleagues called me up, actually she works in. She's a Latina colleague at NPR in the newsroom, and she called me up and she said. Do you think that Latino USA has been this incredibly successful because of NPR or despite NPR. And no one had asked me that and I kind of like. ooh And I said well actually despite. Despite NPR, do you think you know 'cause? There are a lot of shows not produced by NPR. Distributed by NPR. Do, you think other shows like that in your same boat that were hosted by white people or felt to maybe India leadership more mainstream. Do you think they got more support than your show did pound for pound? Yeah How does that make you feel? Like I said, that's why. I didn't. See I've been feeling this for a long time, my love. News, so Gimme a word for the emotion. Well right now I'm glad that I'm with a partnership with Pr X.. That's not gonNA units not on the table so I'm like I'm looking to the future. That's why I'm like yeah I'm all about like? It's all about the dodge this morning, boxing teacher. was making us do the we've the. We've the constant, which by the way is really really hard, and that's just how I feel is a journalist of color in a survivor Mexican immigrant woman in this like it's always like whoo. Okay well and so. That stuff that you're saying like. How does it make me? That's rolled off me a long time ago, and it is a central part of what has moved me as a journalist as a woman of color in this country is that. Is like. Oh, you're going to try to silence me or tell me that I'm not objective or tell me that I have an agenda or tell me that is not going to be successful or tell me. Okay I might go home and cry. But I'm not GONNA give up. Thanks, again to Maria Hinojosa. She's the host of the Tino USA. We asked NPR for a response to what Maria told us and they gave us this statement. We have the highest respect and admiration for the Latino USA team and from Maria Hinojosa. We are proud. That Latino USA originated at NPR member station, K. U. T., and that since nineteen, ninety-four NPR has been the program's national distribution partner today, hundreds of NPR member stations bring the show to their listening communities. We are grateful. Maria entertain who are produced a consistently wonderful show and nurtured journalist who have gone on to work all over the public radio system. We are glad public radio listeners will continue to hear Latino. USA on their public radio stations across the nation. All right now. We're going to have a chat with someone who just began working with NPR Kelly. McBride NPR's newest public editor. I WanNa talk with her. About one particular part of this entire debate, the way in which we've been taught as journalists to do our jobs that most fundamental level leads to systemically racist outcomes. I am talking specifically about the idea of journalistic objectivity. This idea that reporters only report the facts. They keep themselves out of the story, and they eliminate all biased in their coverage. A lot of folks say well. That only works if you're man and straight. And White. I wanted to find out. Why are journalism so entrenched in objectivity and whether or not this standard is fair, so I went to one of the top journalism at experts in the country I am the senior vice president at the POYNTER institute. I am the chair of the Craig Newmark Center Ethics in leadership at the Poynter Institute and I am also the public editor for NPR that Kelly McBride. Kelly has advised newsrooms about difficult journalism ethics problems for years, so it made. Made, sense to begin by asking Kelly for her definition of objectivity in journalism, it really means that you will objectively pursue the facts in order to determine the truth, and there's all sorts of things that go into that right like there's how you frame the story how you identify who you're going to interview, and then really important is who else is involved in the story. So who edits it because that the the safety nets that are created in newsrooms are meant. To help an individual program against her own bias now the problem is if all the safety nets have the same biases that that doesn't happen right and that's. That's exactly what's been happier. Also objectivity has come to mean certain different things for different journalists. There are some. Who say well objectivity means that you have to. Pretend! That kind of you don't exist, and you have to just simply say what these powerful people are saying doing. You don't provide context you don't provide analysis. It's a kind of. Totally taking yourself all the way out of it to the point where you won't even tell people if you vote or not. And I think. This is the thing for me like there's so many different interpretations of what objectivity means, yet you know that's actually kind of a confederation of two different principals in journalism, so one is the principle of objectivity in this idea that that we are pursuing the truth in spite of our own biases, and that that we actually promised, swear to God that we're going to get it right because we have all these safeguards in place, even though they've failed numerous times in the past. But the other thing is is that in American journalism in particular? It was built on this business principle of aggregating A. Politically diverse audience, and then selling that audience to advertisers, so in in Europe you see much more you see much more of the journalism coming through a political lens because that's just how the business model grew up over there, but over here especially as in different markets, you went from multiple newspapers to a single newspaper. There was this motive that was really a business motive that you would bring in the entire political spectrum and if you were going to do that, you needed to convince that audience that you in the newsroom didn't have. Any particular biases it is refreshing to hear you as a leader in the industry acknowledged that some of this is about the principles and bedrocks of our journalism, and some of it's about business, and at the end of the day for whatever reason we have ended up with a definition of objectivity. That is as much about business as it is about telling the truth and I think what frustrates so many journalists, somebody younger journalists, journalists of color or women require journalists as at newsroom leaders are resistant to acknowledge that I read NPR's social media policy, and it's couched in terms of ethics and morality and idealism. But I also know that part of it is the bottom line is. Not Do anything of the public facing person at NPR. That would possibly damage NPR's revenue streams. And I mad. They don't just say that. Yeah? They don't mean to say that they. Don't I mean that's the thing is they? Don't. They really do believe, and I actually believe also that there is. That there is a line somewhere that we shouldn't cross, and maybe it is way up the continuum on just. If you're a political reporter. You can't help people who you're voting for. Maybe the line is all the way over there. Right, because of imagine that like if you were a political reporter in you were covering. Trump's campaign and you again. I'm voting for Biden though I was that guy. Did you tell people out loud. I didn't tell folks voting for in two thousand sixteen, and I wouldn't but I think gets. Those are the ones where I think everyone can agree, but there's there's there's other things like how much of me do I. Bring to a story when I'm covering police violence against black men. Am I allowed to say that's racist. Because I know what racism is experienced, it trust me and don't make me say racially tinged. Like those, and that's where it gets murkier well. You know you know where I. I experienced this. Yeah, so when gay marriage was was a hot hot issue, right? They were different cities or states that were making gay marriage legal. The Supreme Court hadn't yet decided in San Francisco the mayor of San Francisco. made it legal and a reporter for the San Francisco Chronicle on a Saturday after weeks of covering it, the City Hall reporter went down and got a marriage license, and she was taken off the beat. Wow, and as in as an ethicist, right is a journalism ethicist. I was like wait a second. That can't be right. because. She was exercising in San Francisco. What was a legal right? You don't mean you didn't tell people who'd been divorced. They couldn't cover this issue because they'd you know somehow. Defiled the sanctity of marriage by? Getting divorced. So that was, that was where realized that you cannot penalize people for who they are. That's not fair. Yeah, because you end up with the only people that are untainted enough to do all the work are people who are only straight are people who are only men are people who have only gone to college and has a certain pedigree people who are an the deaths a problem, so bias is to right. It's just that we don't well. That's the thing, but these leaders aren't seeing those. Yeah, because they look just like them. I think now what is required to speak to the Syria. Systemic issues being raised in this reckoning. Going to have to be an acknowledgement that the movement toward writing these wrongs. It's going to be in some ways painful and you should do it anyway. From your conversations with newsroom leaders across the country. Do you think they're ready to accept that idea that this might hurt that? It might not just be. A statement and everyone shakes hands, and says sure good now now I mean nobody wants to voluntarily sign up for something painful. You do it because you know that what comes on the other side is worth head. There's individuals in every single newsroom who are part of the problem. Then somebody has to tell those people that if they want to keep their jobs, they have to stop being part of the problem, and that means that they're either going to have to be quiet. Or they're going to have to change or leave. Just leave well. That's I mean if they want to keep their job right like. Yeah and I've seen people. Who are these problem, people? I don't think I've ever seen any of them. Actually chain, but I've seen some of them. Learn to be quiet and let other people lead. And then they actually become the beneficiary. Of what comes after yeah. And then I. Think also so many lessons of me too I. Think are applicable to this meteoroid. Me To kind of work. Because a lot of folks were just literally canceled and they had to go, they were shamed. They were fired. And you said you can't be here anymore. And it was painful for them, and probably all the folks that liked them in love them but like. Sometimes, it's just that yeah. So my last question for you back to these two ideals that butt heads this idea of objectivity. But also this business idea of needing to be somewhat neutral to appeal to a large audience. And reworking probably reassessing, what objectively means a newsroom? What advice would you give to newsroom leaders? Writing up that next ethics guideline for their journalist about quote, Unquote Objectivity Post reckoning. Yeah, so this is where I'm supposed to come through with something really profound and I mean I. I am I. Am humble enough to say. That I don't have the answer yet. But I'm also arrogant enough to say that I believe after working through lots of really really hard ethics problems with newsrooms that I think we are going to find the answer and I think it's going to start by. Recognizing that there is a difference between. Revealing political bias. and. Revealing lived experience. And we need to start there and say your lived. Experience should not count as political bias. Thanks again to Kelly McBride joining us and thanks to everyone who, over the last week or so shared very very personal stories about life as a person of color in the newsroom. I heard from colleagues as well. And one thing one of those colleagues told me about all of this. She said so much of this work is convincing journalist. who think they've been doing it right for so long that maybe in some ways they've been doing it wrong. And then she said to me. This phrase really stuck with me, she said. How do you argue with the fish about the water there's. I. Don't know just yet how to do that. It's pretty difficult. It seems frustrating,
World Health Organization acknowledges coronavirus can be airborne
"I just read that. We still don't have a definitive posture on masks from the WHO? And that they are finally ceding ground to the idea that the coronavirus could partially be spread in air. I mean this is so bizarre because it's the middle of July, there are three million cases, and half a million people have died, and we are still there, and so you know when I saw that trump pulled out of the WHO You know in this weird way the way he did. It was kind of cartoonish in stupid, and you know kind of an insolent child, but the reason he did. It was actually pretty reasonable because this organization. Is Not a scientific or health body, it's an academic body, and you can see this in universities where all of a sudden things tilt away from fax, and it tilts towards you know all kinds of very very very small points of. Political capital that people fight over and so these politicized organizations are incredible and to the point at which we saw you know this past week the report that. Well over two hundred fifty of their own scientists who they rely on, said Hey. It's very clear that this is an airborne phenomenon aerosol tiny microparticles of Aerosol when people talk when they sing when they cough when they sneeze, all this obvious stuff floats in the air and if you ever closed air conditioned. Location like say a church in the South or a hotel or casino? It's not a good idea to be in there, and it's especially not about. Is especially bad idea. Take your mask off so now. The WHO is over two and as you said in his just horrifically comical way can explain as we're very clearly explaining that this is a political organization that is funded by a duopoly of superpowers that have many issues which we're going to get into today. And we have to say who the duopoly is Sax when you look at this being are token conservative here and you see the trump win. How frustrating is it for you? That trump's delivery and his persona when he is right in a person can't be wrong all the time I'm proof positive that you. You have to deal with the fact that he doesn't. It's such a stupid inane way that you don't actually get credit for the win. Well trump is often the the bull in a China shop, and kind of disrupts the status quo by. Throwing a grenade into it but frequently there there are good reasons why the status quo niece be disrupted and the the new. York Times laid out the case in a new story on who the the one that reported the scientists complaining that you're talking. It was just a straight news story, but it almost came across as an expose because whose incompetence was laid out so starkly the fact that they were slow on mass. Oppose them and. I think kind of lied about them. and then. and then to to be downplaying the airborne nature of the virus in favor of. Maintaining this narrative that it spread through touching surfaces or Which I think people are realizing now is much much less likely. And, so yeah, you do kind of have to wonder whose side is is on and the the New, York Times article kind of suggests why they do this, which is. When they issue a declaration, they have to think about the ramifications and all of their member countries, and so, what ends up happening? is they sort of start with the policy, implication or political result that they are? And then of reverse engineer, the science and You know with article talks about how you know if we were to come out and and sort of. Be Very. Clear about airborne transmission that could affect spending, or or you know political budgets all these different countries, and so they've been reluctant to do that so yeah, it's a it's A. WE'RE GONNA nation that sort of political, first, and then reverse engineers the science to fit that. And you know what this reminds me of. It's like when you have giant. Board of a company, the management team comes out, and now they've got to present like a pivot or an acquisition whatever it is, and they're thinking well. Okay. We've got this funding source. These people own twenty six percent of who this person owns twenty two percent. We've now got to present it to them. And what are the Ram downstream vacations? Luckily there's an alignment in a single company. The alignment is we want company share price to go up, but here in the world it is not equally aligned is in China's best interest. What's in the best interest and what's in America's best interest might be radically different, and they are literally funding them correct from off while there's a they are there. There's a there's this thing called Sayers law right which many of us kind of have seen play out which is at academic the saying something like academic politics. Are So vicious, because the stakes are so small, and in this interesting way, the WHO has lost the script because they fight over politics, who gets to say what who's being positioned, and they lose sight of the real downs in my opinion, the downstream implications of the things that they have because if they actually just thought from first principles and tried to be a truly independent body that said we are going to take. The capital were given from the countries that are supporting us and actually do the best. And actually published, like what is the best thing to do for example in the case of krona virus and be definitive and. We'd be a much better place, but a lot of what is allowed the posture corona virus to transition from a health issue to a political issue in many ways, has been because organizations like the WHO and the CDC. Our political bodies and their academic bodies, and so the incentives of the players within these organizations are not necessarily project the right public health positioning they are. Are At some level to think about their own career trajectory and the political machinations had happened within the organization that are blind to normal citizens like us that just consume the output, and then so when you see something like an inability to give a definitive ruling on things like masks, or you know other things. You just kind of scratch your head in wonder. Wonder is it that they're dumb and the answer is no. It's not that they're dumb. They're motivated by very different things than public health all the time, which
Steve King Finally Loses His Congressional Seat
"An incumbent Republican congressman from Iowa he's on his way out CBS's Stephen Portnoy afternoon nine terms in the house Steve king was for all intents and purposes abandoned by his party stripped of his committee assignments by GOP leaders last year he was quoted in a New York times article asking when the phrase as white nationalist and white supremacist became offensive
Trump’s executive order could be a disaster for thwarting misinformation
"You Michel Cinder. Let's look ahead to today. I know the president is working on some sort of executive order pertaining to social media. Again more distractions. What are you watching? That's what I'm watching as we have this conversation. It's the door conversation about that. Death toll one hundred thousand Americans were more actually dying from this virus. The president is focused on pushing back on social media companies. It's comes of course. After twitter changed its policies to start trying to explain to people that are on the site that some of the president's tweets are not are misleading. Including of course labeling some of those tweets misleading in China provide information including on mail in voting the site saying that President Trump is spreading information on that. The president is expected to sign some sort of executive order. That would push back on them. It seems like it's going to be some sort of regulation possibly stripping them of some some sort of protections that they have a social media companies. It's not clear exactly. The White House hasn't said exactly what the president's going to be timing what we do know that this is going to be in retaliation to what he sees as twitter really targeting him and treating him unfairly. So it's in some ways another split screen where you have the nation still thinking about one hundred thousand and more Americans that we've lost and the president focused on opponents that he sees focused on his perceived enemies and focused on what he seizes liberal people trying to get out. And when of course this is really a social media company trying to respond to the overwhelming criticism of the president who has at times spread misinformation on his website. And of course this comes as the witter of of a woman of course. The president had said over and over again was murdered. Which of course is a baseless claim. Laurie close so I think in some ways. I think it's really it's really historic but it's also really. It's it's incredible that the president is going to be spending part of his time trying to hit back at twitter. I'm what is spreading baseless murder conspiracy theories? Well it's a distraction make. It's all a distraction. It's still and again against you but you have to look you have to step back and you have to look at when this began and the really outrageous stuff began as we were moving towards that Sunday front page New York Times Article. That showed that one hundred thousand. Americans we're going to be dead from the coronavirus and so now it's morph into fights with cable news hosts Al Sad that and and twitter And as long as he can get people talking about that being shocked and stunned and deeply said about that. They're not going to be focusing. On the fact that one hundred thousand people died of a pandemic that he said was just one person coming in from China. But I'm seeing a lot of people even trump supporters who see this as basically as they see the coronavirus they see this president endangering their lives not leading by example pushing quack drugs. That don't that actually are dangerous. That help other people in other ways but are dangerous in terms of treating corona virus. They see that it's basic it impacts their basic safety. Well when they watch him talking about this conspiracy theory in the light of the husband asking him to stop in the lot of grieving family begging for mercy and begging him to stop and they see him running over that request. That's as basic to them as it pertains to decency. I think there are a lot of trump supporters. I've been seen and reading. That are just like no. This is the bottom of the barrel of the core of who you are and we can't support this. So that is that is grieving family. Obviously but Willie you grieving family. That just does not deserve this. There are other one hundred thousand. Grieving families Today and we also should talk about the president ridiculing. People for wearing masks ridiculing Joe Biden a public figure for wearing a mask for following actually the guidelines of the White House following the guidelines to Dr Foul chief following the guidelines of the for following the guidelines of just about every doctrine America and mocking members of the press.

"Hello friends and relatives. Welcome back to another episode of All. My relations were so happy. You're here Hello. Good morning good afternoon. Good evening hello hello. We have a really great episode for you today. We're talking with DOS Collins and Chelsea Lugar of the welfare culture initiative. They are two of our friends and colleagues who we have known for a long time in different areas of their life And we recorded this episode of few months ago back when Michigan was still pregnant so it was a really amazing opportunity to talk with them about the work that they do In thinking about wellness from a really kind of holistic perspective and indigenous perspective and how that takes into account we eat how we move our bodies what we think about especially during The time of life that Mantica was en and that Chelsea had been in not long Before her so we were bonus. Double excited 'cause we knew we had this episode coming and a couple of weeks ago in the New York Times. There was an article about food movements in Indian country and it featured Some really beautiful photographs of Fashion Chelsea and their daughter aloe And talked to them a little bit about the work they do. So what we thought. That could be a really great entry point into our conversation. thinking that many people might have encountered. They're work recently in the New York Times but then again I started actually reading the article and the article did what did what we always see. Which is that. It reinforced that poverty porn narrative and framed native people. You know from this perspective that put them in a place of of danger of survival as extinction they think it's essentially another extinction narrative. Almost and so I'd be really interested Adrian and in wondering how you might frame that if you were going to let say bright this article for the New York Times Okay so I am someone in my education research world. I think a lot about what we call deficit framing and it's something that You see a lot in research about quote unquote marginalized communities about native students in particular Where our communities? Our students are whoever we're talking about are always framed as lacking as As needing interventions as needing resources as being just framed is in a deficit Perspective and the difference between a deficit perspective. And then one. That is more in my work. I used the word. Goodness focus or like Asset based is looking at things from a position of strength and what communities already have and what they're bringing to the table and so this article is from the beginning. It's called how native Americans are fighting food crisis and the subtitle is as the corona virus limits access to food many are relying on customs like seed saving and canning that helped their forebears survive hard times so from the start. It's framed as though the corona virus is what is causing a food crisis in Indian country. And because of this moment all of a sudden people are returning to stroll knowledge is in traditional customs quote unquote which is like a word. I hate It's very anthropological. But they go on to The reporter interviews people that are incredible leaders in these areas in their communities. Folks that she actually Got Access to a lot of the names from my friend and colleague Liz Hoover who is an incredible food sovereignty researcher who is not mentioned anywhere in the article but The folks that are profiled in here people that we know their their names through this work. Milo yellow hair in weight loss and Chelsea Rebecca and Stephen Webster in night a Folks in San Carlos like it's just a a list of really incredible leaders but they're all framed as there's a crisis and they are reacting to it rather than if I would have written this article to your question. I very clearly would have framed. This as here is a moment where we are worried about the food supply chain in what is currently known as the United States. And here's a chance for us to look to indigenous communities as leaders in how to take care of one another and how to use and social and traditional knowledge is that have always been there To lead us through this moment and into a future that looks different than what we have now. A better and brighter future around our food and food security because a lot of these communities that are profiled here actually like aren't in a moment of crisis around their food systems they are just shifting their policies and practices to to what people are needing right now. And that's a beautiful model that a lot of communities be learning from like the work that Brian Yazdi is doing in. Minneapolis around feeding Urban elders and community members through traditional foods. That in itself is an amazing story. And instead it's just a little blip in this article about how he didn't have any catering jobs so started volunteering. So I just think the framing of it overall could have really been from this point of strength talking about that. Our communities know how to help one another no. The power of traditional foods know how to work with the land that they live on All of these things that are really important lessons for everyone rather than framing it as some sort of food crisis and yes like we do have food insecurity in Indian country. There's also a lot of amazing lessons that can be learned from the work that these folks have been doing for decades. This isn't something that just popped up in the last few months lifetimes of work that people have been putting in to get us to this point to be able to access those resources and serve our communities in the ways that they need right Like the the ability. I noticed in this article that they talk about some Alaska fishermen and hunters and that these folks are doing this. You know to prepare for crisis. When in fact we know especially I being able to relate to fishing culture that we go fishing and put up food for winter and every springtime. You know it's something that my family has been doing for generations and our communities have been doing generations and it's a part of the intergenerational knowledge that we highly value in our communities. I was taken back when I read the book about Rohan White Because Rohan white is one of those women that Hey I hope we introduce you to on this podcast but B. I think of a Shiro. She's one of my. She's one of the most inspiring women I've ever encountered in all of Indian country. I had the privilege of taking one of her seed saving workshops and I was so moved by her indigenous intelligence her connection to land in her connection to seeds. And how empowering an empowered I felt after spending just one afternoon with her where she gave me seeds and made me feel like it was okay to grow them and how that important and she's been doing this work for a very long time and she started a whole food sovereignty movement along with Liz and others and in this article it talks about her growing heirloom seeds. Which is I think. It's just wrong. Because she doesn't grow heirloom seeds. She grows pre colonized seeds. Oh she she grows ancestral seeds. And you know it also says that she's doing this as a as a response to closed casino revenue which is so silly ruins been doing this empowering people because the people needed and because she was called to do this work and because she's been doing it for a really long time and I don't want to speak for her you know but I just. I'm really disappointed with the way that we are. Continuously framed in massive media and mass media especially in this New York Times article. I really hope that there will come a time that maybe instead you get to write the article nuts an outsider writing it for us.

"Especially after dana white has been adamant about joseph benefit is it's like what is the point of all this what is going on like i kind of tune out now all right fair enough and the biggest biggest match up and this is the one that came with a lot of controversies darren till and calvin gas lamar booked their fighting in new york u._f._c. two forty four the if you think about it you like like when i i read about it. I was like okay cool in but i guess many people are having a problem with the fact that dana white had said he feels like maybe they brought along long there until a little too quick especially after these two back to back losses that he's taken and so many are pointing and saying than what are you doing as he's moving up to middleweight and you're throwing them against one of the killers that are out there remember about a year ago gasol supposed to fi- whitaker for the title whitaker baker had <hes> what was it hernia problem or something that he had to be authorized or or was it <hes> at i think so and so then he has to izzy outta sonya and they have a great fight for the interim bowel so we know and of course he's beating jock array. We know he's a stud out thursday then the question is why are you fighting that dude you know what i mean like start off with. Somebody ranked lower at middleweight and then figure it out. Nobody nobody has a problem with him moving up the middle because he's a big welterweight who's had some terrible way cuts we we wanna look out for on his health side that way but then now sudden we're thinking about some of the marbles upstairs i mean. I think it'd be look at kelvin gas loom. He's one of those guys where he's a big name and he's made it up to the top but really i think we've all felt like he should be a welterweight. You know he's just kind of impressed middleweight <hes> but but what i didn't like man it's something i hate anyway. I really don't but what i didn't like was was your response to that. It was just like his answer was kind of like well yeah but that's what that's that's what darren wanted right but yeah. You're the boss like every fighter want something if you give every fighter what they want. You're gonna have all kinds of ridiculous things. It's your job job to be the guy that say that says yeah but i'm the boss and this is what we want. This is what we talked about because then it it doesn't make him look too good. You know when things like this happen and you're right at the top like that. The way dana white is people were going to bring up other things here and throw them into space and it's just not gonna make sense so i i would have thought like maybe a good responses let kit i know that's what you want but fight this guy i interview if you can get a win here then we'll give you that guy <hes> as far as the challenge of kelvin gasoline like i get it. He's done some pretty good things but here's one of the smaller guys so. I'm kinda okay with it. It's just it just contradicts what they said before all right couple of little news nuggets that are out. There was the two year anniversary of the mayweather and mcgregor fight <hes>. What were your thoughts on that. I mean that was pretty epic for combat sports. It was here in las vegas and we've known mcgregor for a long time and of course course we followed me whether for a long time but do you remember the thoughts you had in and everything that went down. I felt dirty yeah. I've i've had very few stances where i could say no way. Is this going to happen and as those talks were going on. I really said this has zero chance of happening..

"I understand that but to say he knows nothing about it as kind of silly like i'm thinking of like pro football right. He think of jerry jones do you. I think there is anything that can happen. Between dak prescott or zeke elliot and jerry jones doesn't know within five or ten minutes. It's of that happening like that. They represent so much money for that organization. He's gotta know these things right and so when you look at dana white conor honor mcgregor represents so much money for that organization that how would you not know anything if you don't know then you're crazy for not asking questions and because you gotta ask questions for this very reason when when reporters ask you questions about something that's important. You have to have those those answers. He would have been better off. Just say i've spoken to connor and he says it wasn't him and that's it but when there's all that other confusion it looks like you're either hiding something or <hes> maybe connor hat in-involvement but not the direct involvement of the alleged assault who knows you know and so yeah i i think he could have handled that slightly better but again. If in fact it was in connor then that'll be big for connor because now we're only waiting on an injury seems like everything else. He's dealt with the old man that he slugged the phone guy in miami. We know brooklyn's way back in in the rear view mirror. Oh so remember those days really but this is what i go back and forth on my head and i wanna give dana white some credit in this regard. You don't get the commissioner of the n._f._l. Or the n._b._a. For long periods of time especially on a weekly basis like you have in contender series so in a way i applaud dana that he actually goes in front of the media and takes questions on these things because you don't have that access and other sports to people like that so i applaud them in that regard. It's just there's certain things that you have to have answers for something. You either say. You don't want to comment on it which i think you have every right right to do but you can't just yeah. It's an ongoing case. They can't comment on something but when he did say what he said he would have been a little bit more clearance succinct and just said i've spoken with honor. He says it wasn't him that is all i can tell. You would never want that anyway. You want really media savvy. The at times within there are other times that you can just tell there's a cover up. There's what i know and what i should tell them then you know what either needs to have your firm defense at that that particular time you're no comment defense or whatever stephen you have and these would go a lot smoother that because people are just waiting to chop up his words and and run with it. You know what i mean. What do you prefer. Would you rather have dana white that you get to talk to frequently but has these little issues here and they're eh or like like the way it is you i kind of do here's some matchups that have been announced in one's very interesting carlos condit vs mickey goal. I mean we're talking about a former interim. Welterweight champion who only fought big big names now mickey gault quietly has like five one five and two record or something like that but still. I just never thought i'd see those two matched up diego. I get because diego kinda had a little bit of a a really really bad slide for quite a while. You know what i mean but carlos condit against mickey gall i i just didn't i never would have expected to see that that said i'm watching carlos condit fight so i'm done with it. I don't really understand this matchup. <hes> we were at contender series the other day and one guy didn't get in. I forget what is hill was whose name was imposed. Impose fought him. Costume deny heating get in because of his lack of experience because he didn't want him to get wrecked. This kind of what dana said right so. You have a guy like mickey gall who talks talk..

It's almost like somebody could just put their arm around b._j. And pull them away. You know what i mean if he's not doing it himself. Just pull him away because he just us can't be there if somebody called cocktail. I guess that sucks. You do like everybody else side.

Let him take the the second fight for this last fight against yeah and be should. They just cut them altogether. Like what is this doing for this guy's legacy. I think knowing dana white he's gonna play the card of letting all the facts play out because remember dana white picks up the phone. He talks to these guys. He'll get the true story in dana. Dana will usually backup this guy's pretty low east pretty loyal in that regard because he gives them the benefit of the doubt of you know how things go down in the street like that type of thing that type of mentality which doesn't go over well with mainstream media <hes> it doesn't go over well usually with hardcore media are actually the sometimes if some people some of us will say you know because we've been in the sport but you know i i.

"Whether there wasn't investigation in the first place, and why let's look at the time line the timeline is you have an unverified uncorroborated Clinton bought and paid for Russian. Interestingly enough doc- not verified not corroborated use as the basis to spy on the Trump campaign associate now as Greg Jarrett pointed out, it was a great column out today over the ten intervening months from July until may the next year. Lisa page, Peter Struck James Komi and others. They they'd minted under oath. They didn't have any corroboration whatsoever. And other words, nothing in the dossier was corroborated, nor did they have any evidence. And these are their words not mine whatsoever. The pointed to any Trump Russia, collusion, none zero no evidence. Well, McCabe and Komi we're fired as was struck and pay off for them. We're fired, but all for them were responsible for this New York Times headline whether there was an investigation into Trump's secretly working on behalf of Russia. Now, let's just get a a little humor into this you, and I both know Trump for what decade is there any possibility on a face of this earth that Donald Trump would work for rush. No, there is no possibility there is nothing in it for him. Okay. Then it's so absurd for those people who actually know the man, no his business. No our conducted his life. I'm when I read the article, I almost laughed I quick break. Right back more with Bill O'Reilly on the other side. Hannity tonight at nine o'clock. We're gonna break all this down and simplify what can get complicated. But the biggest phoney is story ever advanced. I think in my lifetime. There's been plenty of nineties tonight. As we continue with Bill O'Reilly author of the bestseller killing the s you do know that the dossier claimed that he was in the Ritz Carlton in Moscow with two hookers urine urinating on a bed. He's the biggest germ Foale in the history of mankind. I and by the way. The has been discredited. If there was a shred of evidence to it if anything about it were true, it would have been out by now. Right. They tried and tried and tried. All right. And it would have been out. So that's dumb. But this is Friday. This is Friday. This is the New York Times with this headline is Trump secretly working on behalf of Russia. I mean, this is just insane. And I wanna get. You're saying it's insane. Dangerous. Exactly it's dangerous. This is a avid media now ally ING with the political party, the Democrats to destroy a president of the United States. Now, if Donald Trump did anything committed a felony work for anybody to work for the government official. I want them destroyed. Okay. If that's true. He doesn't deserve to be president. But you cannot in a free nation continue to read articles like this that have no information anonymously sourced, obviously planted and trying to cash the president and the worst possible light. They can where where's the responsibility of this newspaper. I I've said for years now in my opinion journalism in America's dead. I think is really dangerous because the people have very few. Outlets to rely upon anymore. Let me ask you thinking down built you you watch. It you read it, you see it breath, looseness, it's hysteria. And it's they're creating a if you will false belief a false story, no evidence behind it. But they're telling everybody that this president's going to be impeached because of Trump Russia collusion. Yeah. It's gonna it's very interesting. Happened thing happened where we're zeroing. In on tonight. I'm Bill O'Reilly dot com. Carl the White House correspondent for ABC news. Not a friend of President Trump. All right. John carl. I have the tape you wanna plant plan? But when I am getting is this is all building up to the mother report and raising expectations of a bombshell report. And they've been expectations have been building, of course for over a year on this. But people who are closest to what moderates been doing interacted with a special counsel caution me this report is almost certain to be anti climatic that if you look at.

"Uh-huh. Anyway, Bill O'Reilly is here with his take on that and much more. Don't forget bills new book as out and doing by the way, what is your book number four. You've been on the list for how many weeks now killing s been on a fifteen weeks. I believe and I appreciate you reading Addie. And that was really nice of you. Now, busy. I actually read the whole book cover to cover. I learned too busy guy in a country. Thanks a lot Bill early. I'm trying to I'm trying to rest, but it's a little hard. Let me ask you specifically. Let's go into where this all started. And how would evolved in the New York Times over the weekend and how because to me this is right and wrong. This isn't left or right. This is a Republican or democrat. But American this is a real threat to our Republic. So the story that broke Friday night printed in the new. York Times newspaper on Saturday was written by three people. Adam Goldman Michael Schmidt and Nicklaus fan does. Okay. Now, all three of them have a track record of despising, Donald Trump. So everybody should know that right away, these aren't friendly or fair reports. This piece was planted. You've heard that phrase. I'm sure that you plant stories both parties do it. They give to favorable reporters scenario, they want to see to damage somebody. And obviously, this is the headline is obvious FBI open inquiry into whether Trump was secretly working on behalf of Russia. Can't get more sensational in that you cannot. So that headline dams the president of the United States. You read the article is as you pointed out not one shred of evidence to back up the headline when I was in Boston University. Forty five years ago. Our first class said you cannot put a story out unless you have evidence. The story is true these reporters have no evidence they took anonymous sources as they always do the quotas. According to former law enforcement officials and others familiar with the investigation could be anyone you do know that Kevin Brock former assistant director of intelligence at the FBI. He pointed out it's not the agency's job to investigate an administration's foreign policy stance. There was an article on the hill. Quoting a former real quotes, not not anonymous sources saying the New York Times report shows, FBI employees were all working outside DOJ guidelines, and then you add to that rod Rosenstein, literally wanted to put a wire on. On tape the president, which I guess after you get away with the FIS orange. Why wouldn't you try that? Well, the article itself is inherently dishonest and never should have been published. If the editors at the New York Times at any standards, which they do not remember there is an industry that includes New York Times Washington Post, cable networks and network news that is basically in business to destroy Trump. That's not looking for the truth. They're not trying to inform the American people. They want him out. Let me ask you this. Isn't it almost all print all networks all cable except for a couple of shows on FOX? Yeah. I would say not national media. I would say eighty five percent of the national media is in business now to remove the president. I think that's accurate when you go back to this article. And you read the article, which is almost impossible to read a couple of things do emerge the leak came out of the either that you'd Itihi area or oversight committee's because these three is got to see private sworn testimony by James Baker the council to the FBI they saw now the leaker didn't give them the testimony didn't copy it and give them that'd be a federal crime. They saw it. Which means they were shown it and in that testimony Baker said, yeah. Some people wanted to investigate Trump on counter-espionage who were the people. We don't know it had to be okayed by McCabe Andrew McCabe had to be. He was in charge of the FBI it had to be sanctioned by rod Rosenstein. And by the attorney general Jeff Sessions had to be if the I just don't initiate an investigation by themselves backtrack through a chain of command the same people the same cast of characters with the same people that signed off on the dossier now. Yes, it's the same crew that did this. But what's important is the Goldman Schmidt and fan does the three reporters never even went for comment to McCabe or. Or two sessions or Rosenstein, never asked them..

Does appreciate politicians are genius. Well, that's not they are they always do need to go. The other way, we're just going to be grateful for this one specific thing. This is in LA times article about this like this comment, the notion of consenting adults or exposed ways if people wanna live a guy gay lifestyle, this should if they do not then the state has no right to limit the therapy that they seek perfect. Seems pretty simple, right? So it seems at least for now that principle as shockingly. On the day. Speaking of shockingly have three minutes. Let me describe. But the other comments all about. When people hear the word gay conversion therapy. It creates an image of electroshock therapy. The one of my favorite. Spitting. The truth stories is Mike Pence, and when Mike Pence was named the VP nominee and the left freaked out because he supports gay electroshock therapy. That's a live recording of Eric had electroshock therapy. Right. Tram? But I think it's. Like. He was there's a certain Bill that exists that gives federal money to for HIV and aids treatment, and he wanted to amend the Bill so that money would no longer be given to organizations that were there was something like. The no longer supports the types of behaviors that facilitate the spreading of the HIV virus and. We wanna instead give money to organizations that seek to change one's sexual behavior. That's the key word right there sexual behavior. So people talk change sexual behavior as if Mike Pence believed in changing, someone's sexual orientation. Those are very different things. And then and then they took more we're going to change sexual orientation by electroshock therapy where did that come from? And then it turned into he wants to force electroshock therapy, all gay people. Holy cow people. So what was he really talking about? Why would why would we get federal money? This is Mike Pence position. Why would we get federal money to organizations in order to stop the spread of HIV and aids if that organization promotes behaviors that spreads HIV aids? Fright still being gay, but that's changing behavior. That's all. That's what his point was if we're gonna spend money to stop the spread of HIV and aids, let's not give money to organizations that support behavior that spreads HIV. And instead, let's get federal money to groups that support the slowing of HIV and aids because that's the goal. But how that got turned into? Oh, he wants to convert gay people straight. Oh, he wants to electrocute people wants to electrocute everyone. Geez. So I love that story. And I share that again briefly because you're going to see the same type of goofiness during this cavenaugh hearing and my patients for it. It's very little people taking one little thing. He said here at making up ten steps further about what he really meant and total nonsense. And it's for nothing because I promise you guarantee, you he's going to get enough votes to be the next supreme Justice Justice of the supreme court. There's no doubt about that.
