"Amongst The republican base and again if you look at what happened in in the midst of a pandemic in the midst of nineteen twenty nine style economic disaster they beat donald trump by the skin of their teeth. And i think they know that if they run against them in twenty twenty four based on the policies. They're pushing forward. There's a good chance they'll they lose to them again. now how do we hear from trump. i mean the reason. I can say the actually. I've missed him. I don't mean affectionately but there's a hole in my life that used to be a full of trump's latest tweets the latest storm over his tweets. now that he's locked of all social media how are his supporters following. What he's doing. Well that's a good question. You know i think right now. His supporters are kind of on the trump supporters are kind of on auto pilot and they had their particular issues. But the the The funny thing about this is that the the machine that shut donald trump down the machine does that you know the silicon valley machine. that's Doing all of this Woke authoritarianism online is pushing a lot of people. Not in donald. Trump's corner per se ideologically but donald trump's trump's corner administratively. And if they're saying look what you're doing now In shutting donald trump down. You're not you're not shutting donald trump's voice. Now you're shutting my ears down. Because i have a right to listen to what he has to say. I might want to write an article on it. I might want to oppose it. But i can't do it so they're not really in this look at it. They're not shutting. Donald trump down there shutting down all of the millions of people that want to hear what he has to say on both sides of the aisle. And they're creating a. It's going to be interesting to watch how this backlash against social media comes out and as soon as somebody comes up with a decent social media platform people are going to migrate to it in a hurry. You can see people jumping to telegram signal and now the machine is like. Oh my gosh we gotta stop telegraph and signal to. They are battling five hundred million people now on telegram. You just think about that. Five hundred million people are now on telegram. That's why i've set my own telegram channel. You should do the same goal. And if you haven't already if you have tell us how to follow you on it was i. I don't but since i heard that you've done it certainly going to follow suit. People can follow me on twitter at garland nixon. I'm doing a bunch of youtube shows now on my youtube channel a particular interesting one about the empire. I think people should listen to. But i'm gonna be on telegram before the end of the day of that 'cause i would be tossed off. Join the five hundred million company. Can't be wrong but don't go yet. i want to ask you about the democrats. He's signing these executive orders like they were going out fashion like like he was running out of time is running out of time. Do you think the sign yet of the pooch or the push a long cautioned president biden. Don't let kamla how to push your wheelchair. Yeah well you know. I think that Right now joe biden there a little shaky with camera because she hasn't learned how to how to drive the empire yet. So i think joe biden is. They're they're perfectly happy with joe biden that i really don't believe if you look at his history he's been a puppet for very very powerful entities. I don't believe that. Joe biden is independently sitting there chart charting his own. Course i believe that he is. He is a a conduit for power in the very powerful people are flowing their Their their their policies and their power through him and they're just grooming camera harris. I mean if you look at his help and a number of issues the wouldn't show is. No one will be shocked at anytime. If joe biden falls out of a about we just do. This falls out one day in the white house and they have to carry them out. He grabbed the tail of his dog. In the shower you will and had to end up in an ankle. A brace now. Here's something that i'm interested in. I think some of our viewers and listeners will be too. I'm a big admirer of the comedian. Jimmy door is been on this jimmy. How the africa legitimate demand of the democratic members of the house of representatives. That you should not give your vote to the multi-millionaire. Nancy pelosi unless she agrees to bring a vote to the floor of the house on medicare for all basically a national health service. Like we've got an have had since one thousand nine hundred forty eight here in this country. The sky fell on him. Every liberal in america began attacking him and he's now the bad guy for demanding that these so-called liberal radicals ale see others actually do something rather than just talk talk talk. What can you tell us about that row. Well here's the thing that jimmy door again. He violated one of the capitol hill rules or he. He advocated for violating one of the capitol hill rules. And that is you are allowed. Ao see on omar the rest of them. They are allowed to attack the other party to go after the republicans do go after donald trump. But you're not allowed to confront your own party. And he was arguing for them to confront real party real power by going after their own party. And that's against the rules so the whole machine turned on jimmy door because he was trying to change the rule that i mean. That's a solid rule. If you look at the sad thing the ao sees and the the other so-called squad right if the the leaders of the democratic party say we want to go after donald trump. They just scream louder. No not go. After and we've got a decapitate him crushing destroy right whenever the leaders of the democratic party say something about the republicans the squad they just scream it louder they just they just a megaphone for it but they won't go after their own part even bernie's what bernie go after the democrats. He's not gonna do it. Jimmy door pushed for for that. And the thing that jimmy door provides why he's so popular is because there are angry people here and they want to yell and shake their fists. The jimmy door yells shakes his fist. And people can kind of live vicariously through him but he tried to violate. You tried to push people to violate one of the rules and that rules that you can see what happened the whole system push back and said no. I'm sorry we'll yell at the republicans. You're not allowed to go after the people in your own party. You're not allowed to push your own leadership and advocate for things for the people through your own leadership which is truly the only way to really get it. I'm only be okay. Will they be able to harm them. They earned them well right now. Jimmy is He's still online. You know none of all of us are anyone who is Pushing against the majority narrative against the the narrative of the empire knows that at any time we could be tossed off. But i think there are people like jimmy door and i think the system in realizes if we throw jimmy door off of these platforms and he jumps to another platform. He's gonna take a whole lot of people with him and you could start a migration away from these people control. That's there other thing. They're afraid to start that migration. I'd like to see donald trump. Show up and jimmy door and some other people show up on another platform and start a migration because i think once the migration starts away from the traditional platforms. I don't think they'll be able to slow it up. Can you stay on the line. Gallon those coal from pennsylvania from java then pennsylvania on these political. Us political issues jared welcome. Hello tom and hello garlan Nicer talk to both of you. Welcome go ahead so Yeah i just got my job vaccine. So that's great excellent. Now i gotta wait. Gotta wait a month until i get the next one and I wanna talk a little. Bit about jimmy and joe biden. I i think what they did to. Jimmy door is a disgrace. Aoc showed up on jimmy doors. Show in two thousand eighteen before the dem primary and she got a big boost in that primary by showing up on doors show so. Afc is effectively.

"President trump and Twitter are in a war over Twitter the social media platform has label two of his tweets that disparaged vote by mail with fact checks and trump initially responded by complaining this fact checks violate his first amendment rights even though Twitter didn't flag his other tweets promoting at the bank to conspiracy theory involving MSNBC host Joe Scarborough today trump took things a step further he threatened to regulate Twitter and other social media platforms that's something many of the big tech firms have been trying to avoid obviously and joining us to talk about what that means is Kevin race tech columnist for The New York Times hi big family all right so those tweets involve California and governor Gavin Newsom's decision to send mail in ballots to every eligible voter so what so why all of a sudden has Twitter decided to correct this misinformation with the official position now well Twitter like Facebook and some other platforms has really held a firm line on on just a few specific types of of misinformation which involve things like voting and the census and this one ran afoul of those rules it is the exception rather than the rule I mean that these platforms have said that most of the time they are in favor of you know leaving speech undisturbed in case you know there's political debate to be had and so the reaction they must have anticipated the reaction that they would receive from the president so they decided that that was worth it for sure I mean they've known that we've seen this happen to Facebook they've seen it happen to other platforms it's it's happened to Twitter before and the president and his allies really want these platforms to remain open to anything that they want to do that or to to really just give them carte Blanche to spread baseless information conspiracy theories I think the interesting question now is whether Twitter will kind of buckle in reverse stance or whether this is going to be the star of of sort of a more aggressive stance toward toward the trump administration and other I have people who may be spreading boating based misinformation well what conceivably could the trump administration due to strike back legislatively it's not entirely clear I mean there could be you know anti trust investigations the president has a lot of power in the executive branch to make life more difficult for these platforms ultimately though this is a freedom of speech issue this is not I'm not the way that I think people typically interpreted as as Twitter service stepping on the first amendment rights of introbiz allies but of the government actually stepping in to regulate and and preclude private companies from taking certain actions and that actually is a constitutional issue and so I think there's a limit to how far the trump administration can push it without really running into that right so that's really interesting the freedom of speech issue his he's of course saying that that he has freedom of speech was violated but this is a private company they can do whatever they want right when it comes to this exactly and and I mean it's sort of wild to hear claims of of censorship coming from someone who has tens of millions of followers on a platform I think clearly if if Twitter wanted to prevent him from getting his message out and it could have done a lot more to do to do that and then what it's doing now so why aren't they doing the same with these Joe Scarborough tweet Sweeney's basically the president is basically accusing him or raising the specter that he may have murdered someone in his office which is completely false why isn't Twitter taking a stand on that yeah it's it's a great question I think there's a case to be made that if if that were coming from some normal citizen that it would be taken down but Twitter has been very clear that it considers tweets from heads of state from politicians to be part of public discourse tend to not have to follow the same rules as other users meanwhile Facebook has decided it wants no part in fact checking so why are they taking a different path here will Facebook does do fact checking they outsource it to a network of third party fact checkers and they've done you know fact checking on on certain things that politicians have had tweeted but they they are also saying that politicians are exempt from most of their rules none of these platforms wants to be in the business of fact checking every political tweet of being the kind of arbiters of political discourse so they're doing as little as they can get away with and I think voting and this sort of process around voting is an area where they feel like they had they do have a duty they can apply this principle into neutral nonpartisan way and if they have some sort of justification for doing that so what does this look like playing out against mouth as were in a pandemic but also in an election year what does this mean for these social media giants and how their position to give people accurate information when they need it the most well this is going to be a constant battle I mean they are going to be bear the referees right and and players on both teams are working the referees and trying to get their desired outcomes in the case of trump and and conservatives they generally want these platforms to take a hands off approach the lack I think would like these platforms to take a harder line but also you know there are some concerns about censorship on the left as well so I think these platforms you know because they now control a ton of our political discourse and their referees whether they want to be or not mmhm well do you think that the president will do what he has done to other news organizations that he doesn't like just basically call them out as being biased and part of the lame stream media or what have you that Twitter will now be tainted with bad press that he uses against for example your newspaper no absolutely I mean it's already happening this morning you know the president and his allies are calling Twitter you know part of the biased liberal Silicon Valley machine going after certain employees that they think are responsible for these fact checks and Twitter will have to decide whether it cares more about keeping the president and his allies happy or about users receiving accurate and useful information and then both sides of the aisle as you said are interested in raining and these social media giants especially when it comes to election information and what's happening with yeah possible Russian interference all over again that kind of thing do you think that in a strange way that this will unite both sides in a sense to to do something to regulate sooner rather than later I don't think it will unite both sides because I think that each side wants something slightly different from the tech platforms I think you know generally Republicans are concerned about freedom of speech and being able to say whatever they want to say and and get amplified in the ways that they're used to I think a lot of liberals and progressives are concerned with the power that these companies have in the market should these companies be referees should these unaccountable private corporations have control of global discourse and speech the way that they do and if not how do you shrink that influencer or break them up they will be United in anger toward the the big tech platforms although I think their goals are slightly different is there any legislation actively being considered right now I I don't know that there's any realistic legislation and and I think that the white house's announced that it's going to be taking a hard look at anti conservative bias by the big tech platforms but ultimately I mean these are private companies and they are they are allowed by law and under the constitution to make the choices that they are you know that they are making and it's really hard to imagine a scenario in which the courts would uphold and attempt to kind of squash their freedom of expression and the freedom to run their services as they see fit so I think

This is Tech News Briefing from the Wall Street Journal. Hello, Welcome. I'm Tanya Boustos reporting from the newsroom in New York Coming up the rise of fin tack and how it's taking a huge, a bite out of the Big Apple. A look at how these digital operations are shaking up the status quo in Manhattan and how it's poised to expand everywhere else. The Finn tech wave is coming. But first, These tech headlines text thrashed the US government has ordered Qualcom to delay its shareholder meeting The reason to give it more time to review broad coms proposed one hundred and seventeen billion dollar takeover of the chipmaker The move represents a highly unusual intervention by Washington and will delay broad coms proxy fight for control of Qualcomm was bored. Look out for different smartphone maker to shake up. The US market report in the Journal says Xiaomi China's fourth largest smartphone vendor could cell phones in the US as early as this year extending the company's Western expansion as it plans a highly anticipated initial public offering of stock. The company has seen success in emerging markets such as India and Southeast Asia In recent. Years And if she's not too busy these days ask Alexa. If you're ready for an Amazon branded checking account, the online giant wants to develop a product that would appeal to younger customers and those without bank accounts. And it's in talks with big banks including JP Morgan Chase. The goal is to build eight checking account like product to offer its customers. The Journal says the effort is in its early stages and may not come to fruition. Coming up. Thin tech takes over the Big Apple would big cities mean for big fan Tech This is the Wall Street Journal's Tech News Briefing. Thanks for listening to our podcast. We'd like to know more about you, our listeners and your thoughts on our podcast head to wsj.com slash survey and help us improve our podcast. So currently, as we speak, Financial technology providers are as Wall Street Journal reporter Keiko Morris puts it gobbling up Manhattan, office space. What does this mean for the world of ever-expanding? Finn tack and the growing tech labor force emerging within it? Let's get more Joining us now in studio is Wall Street Journal reporter. Keiko more is welcome. High. So Phan tickets sector that's been on the rise, this new demand for office space alone. Seems like it partly illustrates the huge been tech waived That's been growing out there. So you know, you've heard about how thin tech firms and these banks are eating up a lot more space than usual right here in Manhattan. How much more so and and look, we make of that. It's hard to tell by, uh, the labor numbers, the workforce numbers in the the usual stats because a lot of times the thing tech sector, the worker is counted in overall technology or they might be counted in financial services. But here looking at the mound. Two of space that these companies are taking is one way to gauge through their growth and how much that sector is increasing and on the rise. And so a real estate services firm, J L L tracked the leasing of square footage. And so last year They took about three times as much as they had in 2014. Um, so that's a lot as almost nine hundred thousand square feet which might seem small, you know, while in in terms of Manhattan and New York City rate office leasing, but it was one indicator that you could see Finn tech as it. You know, it's a big Silicon Valley buzz-word it's part of that Silicon Valley machine, but within the past ten years or so, it seems like New York is becoming an important hub or off-shoot of sorts. You know, a lot of big name, tech giants in general have been making moves in Manhattan. What can we make of that? 'cause you look at Facebook, Amazon, Alphabet. They're all eyeing Newark in some way. Yes, sir. Oh, Silicon Valley still very much is a hub, but you see these companies expanding their presence here in New York City just recently or earlier this year Alphabet Inc, which is the parent of google agreed to acquire a building where it already is leasing space. But for over two billion dollars Its large block building and one of the hip areas. You've also seen Facebook continue to expand in that Midtown south neighborhood. You have Amazon taking up space on the west side, M as well as obviously it's warehousing footprint. And so these companies to show an overall maturity in New York City's tech hub with that they brought obviously a workforce and other satellite company setting up shop. And so that has made it ripe for financial technology companies to come in and set up shop or or grow organically here, or the they could. Be based in Silicon Valley, but they want to have their outpost here, And it's really important because New York City does have the infrastructure in the ecosystem that can help basically provide the the knowledge and skill set for the financial sector. I mean, it is it, you know, for the US The of finance, capital and globally, It is a big one of the major cities for financing. Yes, I'm call at the center of the universe, sir area have it. Um, so he did it speaks to New York City and cities like it in, as you say, it's fertile ground for this type of growth in this sector. So what's the game plan now? How does this pan out in terms of how they recruit new talent, what they're looking for specifically, and how to expand all things in tech? So a lot of these companies are They're going around the country and recruiting at universities, and they've got a plus it being New York, although New York is very expensive, But it is the place that a lot of young graduates, sir are looking. It's the hip place I. Think Manhattan has something like the percentage of millennials are of the populations like 36 percent for nationalist 28 percent. You know, they've got that going for them And and that kind of helps them recruit, but they also have the talent here now. And so that is also helping to sort of multiply. And you know, have some of these firms set up shop here. The other thing too is that a lot of the big established companies are looking to either partner with her. The younger companies are looking to partner with the established company. So here is where they're coming to do that Keiko Morris. Thanks so much for the time. Thank you For more on the story.
