This is balloon off. dr ball. Just said Artists what kind of tax credits or some kind of you know 'cause wasted about slashing things stint so that they can show like their Whoa kness and get proximate. I would love to know what is going on with this like. Hbo max and hulu especially hbo max for hbo maximes to have for whatever reason invested in being the woke streamer there that's been bare lane recently and just signing and everything to a when fox started and they had on a black shelves are this is the difference those back shows made money and then when they put those stations on the map they toss him to the side but those were solidly profitable like they didn't cost a lot to make and guys. What's happening here. The these films are being used to politically drag us away from where we need to be and to bring people to these platforms who think that in perpetuity. They will get quality and consistent black content but the differences. These are all financial flops. These all lose money. That's what are they wanna have reemphasize this point. This could be my last point. it's fine about. It's like property about copyright. Most committees bearable is around. I is to assemble property. Any this is where the money comes in commodities property. Other things to worry less that he thinks make money is owned and so whatever relationship that beyond has to the henry hampton by all players. That's a story then. They can do whatever they was it in. Perpetuity uses the amazon strategy. When they started where they didn't care the money they just figured we just want to dominate and get market share and consume and they will make money on it later once we actually own everything and far in the bugs be bigger than everybody going to say. Hbo particular the thing. i little. It doesn't matter if it's good or not. Its content because asia's are paying for regardless of whether or not. I watch eyes on the prize. The new one already paid for. Hbo matt And it's basically but they're doing. Essentially what netflix has already been doing for the longest. Fucking time. If you remember. Netflix was the only space. If you were independent black filmmaker they will take your shit vernay. First documentary was on netflix. That's the first time i went out. I saw That was the one about our our hip hop movement here the freestyle fellowship movement. Out here right. There was nobody documenting covering it was small indie henry and netflix. It wasn't just heard multiple black indie films. That they were taking in so they were they. Were putting that there. Were airing on there or on streaming site. Netflix already had a whole black section before black lives matter. I don't think they even. I don't they call it that but they pretty much already had all the black stuff rocking member they had the they're white people in. They had the what she's gotta have it in. It was a whole bunch of other. Shame right is about on netflix. Real quick about a black section. They have this thing where they have. Decoy screen shots and pick so like if they can tell that you're black they will front load knock recommendations to you and they'll also take like see every show and has one talking black guy in it was like five minutes every episode. If knows your black it will put that one actor space as the picture that goes with the show but the white person when they see that that thumbnail for the show.

"Just put him in front of a camera and we'll get out of the way and the other thing we believe all heartedly is that we don't want colin kaepernick in this league. David this point five an odd question but at this point would colin kaepernick have less power if he was let back into the nfl. Yeah it's a great question. I mean he might. Because i mean that's the the the thing about martyrdom i said before about Con cabinet being used as a ghost story for this current generation of players will in another respect. He's also kind of an animating spirit for this current generation of players. If you're a twenty two year old player that means you are seventeen. When colin kaepernick went through this in two thousand sixteen and so a lot of these players particularly the ones i've spoken to. I mean it's not even a question they think of him as a hero and that's something the. Nfl can't take away. What do you want people to take from this book. The capture nick taking a knee changing the world. The thing the message that you want out there is because it sounds like you're sort of going uplifting here. As opposed to appalled and i'm used to hearing you appalled guest. I normally am appalled. And i was appalled when i started the book and i actually felt something. Very strange odd Something called optimism by the time was done. Because you know. I look at these people and i remember what it was like in high school. I remember what it was like to not wanna stand out. I played sports in high school. I remember what it was like not to say anything against what my was saying and to see all these young people say there's something more important than high school. There's something more important than sports. There's a bigger world out there. And i'm going to sacrifice whatever entitlement that i have for the purposes of starting a conversation a very modest bowl that gave me a sense of hope. Do you know of kapernick is proud of himself like the idea that he would give up his career but the end 'cause would be generation would be a little extra woke a little extra sensitive a little extra compassionate a little extra kind whatever it is a little extra feeling of confidence giving your opinion or standing behind something. Yeah i mean. I think he has a great deal of pride in that. I mean we're going to see a lot more of it in the year to calm where he's going to be doing this. Roll out of everything from a children's book to a television series. Being done by. Abe vernay in that you know that to me is a function of our times. I mean athletes are now content creators. It's not just con- cabernet. They all want to control their own image. They all want to control what they're doing. I mean you know sure. The tom brady production that's coming. Espn plus they all want to control their packaging and con cabinets. No different in that regard. But i think underneath all of that is somebody who's very proud that he wouldn't let himself be broken. Because that's one thing to there were strong indications from the league that if he was willing to do what they call the tony dungy tour he could have been. Let back into the league. You know you sit next to tony dungy. You look very humble and sixty minutes interviewed interviews you and you talk about how. You made a mistake and colin tony. Dungy even put himself forward to do that. Colin kaepernick said. No you know. Because i did nothing wrong and so i do think he's proud of that. Dave thank you sir. Appreciate your work. Thanks for making the time for us. Ed i got to say. I love the new show. It reminds what mr miaki said. You know it's like it's the same but different. So i love that.

"I want you to understand something really important. Which is thoughts are not facts and just because you think it does not make it true. I think one of the other inherent issues is that people feel shame around receiving. I think one of the most dangerous thoughts is i'm not worthy of it. I think that we have been raised to believe that things that are given to us. We have to earn. And we don't believe were deserving of them. And that's why i said to yesterday love. It's not supposed to be earned. And i think for so many people growing up. In order to get love from their parents they had to get straight a.'s or look a certain way or act a certain way or major a certain thing love was conditional and so then we attach that to the way we think about receiving across the board and also what.

There are really three reasons number one. Let me just talk about from personal perspective. I want establish a social media presence. Because i want to get my brand out there so that i can have potentially a better job in the future or i can put myself out there so that i can network and get to know more people so it's more self centric in looking at long term benefits. The second reason is really being altruistic. You wanna be out there because you want to give you want to offer knowledge you want to provide information which is a great thing the third reason you wanna be out there on social is you're out there on behalf of your organization.

NFL Training Camp Amid COVID-19 Pandemic
"A look at the schedule and testing guidelines as things get going around the league, all players must pass three Cova tests over a four day span before entering the team facility, today and tomorrow players will. Will be tested and then return home to isolate for twenty four hours. Meetings are still virtual. After this period, players will be tested daily for the first two weeks, and then every other day. If the positive rate remains below five percent players do have the option to opt out. Really get back to that in just a moment, but first here's what a handful of head coaches are saying about today. Sorry I mean again. The emphasis will be that. We've got to follow the protocol. Be Very diligent with. That's the thing that I think that we're missing right now. A society is that. Is that not very diligent as we? Understand more and more about this. It seems that you know that that wearing a mouse washing your hands socially just. Trying to avoid large crowds You know you give yourself a chance. We're fortunate that we're testing here testing. And you know so. We're getting results quickly. Other thing that's been beneficial. Of Our and Continuing maintain, Around the League, a number of US going to have to be the best teammates we've ever been because we're GONNA have to not only take care of one another, but we're really looking after your families, too, because we're going to make the best decisions off the field and I think we've also learned you can do all the right steps, and still you know have positive tests so. We'll take them when those happen. We'll deal with them, and that's why the protocols are in place. And there's this component so far. Nine thousand nine hundred players have opted out of the upcoming season, and the list is growing some notable names here. Including Three Patriots starters also. You've heard GPS guard Lawrence do Vernay Tardif and bear stalwart Eddie Goldman. Adamant feels like this list has been growing by the minute today. Take us through exactly what the opt out means and the deadline to do so the impact of this. We'll susie this situation where I think a lot of players are concerned about what they're seeing across the country with the spikes in various states, some of these players who are opting out have friends, relatives, family members who are sick. Who may have passed in this particular case, every situation is unique and different. Dont`a hightower welcome to child in the middle of July Patrick shown is scheduled to have a child in the near future, and I think players are looking out for their safety and feel unsettled about the fact that the virus has affected certain segments of the society more of the disaffected others. It has affected the elderly, I. Think we're going to hear more and more. More about coaches around the NFL something. We're not hearing a lot of right now. It is affected minorities and I think some of these players have been scared off by and are opting for the opt out for this upcoming season. We've seen a higher than expected number of opt-outs and again players have until August third to officially. Opt Out so this may just be the beginning we have six opt outs from the new. England patriots already, and there may be more coming across the League Uzi.
Noose found in Bubba Wallace's garage stall, NASCAR says
"Now? Mike Greenberg Bristol with you this morning. And as I said right off the top of the show, I would have loved to have started with any of those today, and we certainly will get to the mall, but we begin with an absolutely despicable story coming from the world of NASCAR. In this developing story, a noose was found in bubba Wallace's. Stall at the NASCAR race in Talladega Alabama yesterday less than two weeks after Wallace led efforts to push NASCAR to ban the confederate flag NASCAR announced the news last night well after the race had been postponed due to inclement weather, and said it was launching an immediate investigation here. was there statement late this afternoon? Nascar was made aware that a noose was found in the garage stall of the forty three eighteen. We are angry and outraged, and cannot state strongly enough. How seriously we take this heinous act! We have launched an immediate investigation and we'll do everything we can to identify the persons responsible and eliminate them from the sport. As we have stated unequivocally, there is no place for racism and NASCAR, and this act only strengthens our resolve to make the sport open and welcoming to all while himself tweeted a statement last night, which read in. In part today's despicable act of racism and hatred leaves me incredibly saddened, and serves as a painful reminder of how much further we have to go as a society and how persistent we must be in the fight against racism. As my mother told me today, they are just trying to scare you. This will not break me. I will not give enor- rely back down. I will continue to proudly stand for what I believe. In Allah Marty Smith is covering this for us in the scene in Talladega. He joined us an hour ago. The News in Bubbas garage stall was actually seen by a member of his team. Darrell Bubba never saw it. He never saw it personally and win. That team members saw it. He alerted NASCAR. And Nascar immediately had a meeting of its senior executive staff, and they made the decision that they were going to remove this person from the sport as quickly and rapidly as possible. This was not a situation where a fan might have meandered in on this because there were no fans in the garage. So what you're looking at is you're looking at team members. You're looking at officials. You're looking at potential security. You're looking at maybe cleaning personnel that have access to these garage areas. Again! That was Marty Smith with US earlier. Lebron James among many who posted messages about this. He tweeted sickening Wallace, my brother! No, you don't stand alone I'm right here with you as well as every other athlete, I just want to continue to say how proud I am of you for continuing to take a stand for change here in America and sports at Nascar. I salute you as well. Well Sprint Cup driver Michael McDowell added. God help us the level of evil. It takes to do something like this is disgusting. This is enraging and heartbreaking all at the same time Dale. EARNHARDT Jr. tweeted simply a hope of a wins it tomorrow again. The race will be run today. It was delayed by weather yesterday, and as I bring Steven A. and Marcus into the conversation here I'll. Repeat that the area in which this was discovered, there were cameras all over it should be. Relatively easy investigation for the NASCAR officials to conduct, and we are standing by for any information live from Talladega Marty Smith will bring us anything as soon as there is any further news with that thought in mind, Stephen. We've not yet had a chance to say good morning to you I. I just want to give you the floor here. What are your feelings and thoughts as we see this story developed from last night? Well I. Mean I think that for me? Personally I'm a little bit different than the kind of sentiments that have been expressed by a lot of people, because obviously you find this reprehensible and disgusting, and it's incredibly sad, and we get all of that but there's a forgive the the figurative smirk that might end up covering my face or draping my face because to me. Me It's just folks displaying the ignorance, and the more they put it on display, the more it enlightens a lot of people in White. America about what Black America has been telling them about for so many years decades spanning centuries for crying out loud. This is not new. This is something that we've known existed for all time. This is something we know we'll continue to exist. And there is no way around it and so this there comes a point in time where you have to accept that reality one of the things that I would encourage everybody to go watch. If you get an opportunity, you can go on Netflix. You can watch that documentary thirteen by EVA do vernay along with others, sensational job of address mass incarceration in the United States, of America one of the things they highlighted. Is that under the Nixon? Administration where you're literally talking about you know White folks that are hippies and you associate them with marijuana and you associate black. Black folks with crack cocaine, and as a result of that will ultimately galvanize folks in your favor, because they'd be scared to death, and you'd be hearing words like law and order ad, nauseam that was in the sixties for crying out loud in two thousand and twenty, and we're hearing the same thing now. You just have to open your eyes. You have to pay attention to the parallels you have to. You have to pay attention to the correspondence. That's taking place right before your very eyes throughout history, we have had people that have been adroit at light laying low. Controlling the narrative, manipulating the narrative switching things to their favor, all in an effort to maintain or to retain power. It's something to kind of thing that has been taking place in. Usually they've been incredibly skilled at remaining in the dark and saying it's then it's not us, it's them. It's not us well guess what are coming to light more and more in this day and age I find that a cause for celebration, not a 'cause. You know to be saddened by anything. The I find these to be. Beautiful tops as difficult as it may be the fact that I nation appears to be becoming more enlightened than ever before and ultimately as a result. We're coming together. I find that to be a huge plus not a minus. If the ignorance has to show itself, and if the ignore, it has to showcase themselves in order for this to happen coming out of the dock to me. That's of course was celebration Marcus. Stephen. That's what I alluded to earlier man just come on out. Show us who you are, so we know how to deal with you and everybody. That's four. Right knows how to deal with you. Look listen, this is. There has been. We've been having this conversation for a long time. I mean we had this conversation we had. This conversation went capped kneeled about police brutality. We talked about racing all of them and man you. You look if you look around and social. There were people literally Oh twitter last night. Say A BUBBLE! Did this for attention? What what are you talking about like? It's not. It's not unfathomable that someone could do that. We sold Jesse's me. Make reference to that because people can conjure up things to create narratives to make people overreact. That's why saying earlier. Estimate I'm not doing this emotional. Rollercoaster I'm getting off of it right like I'm nuts and bolts to was going on. There is progress that needs to be made in this country I'm focusing on that progress that needs to be made. That's what bubble wireless is focused in on a by making his statements in Nascar. That's a lot of athletes are focused on a lot of people in society in general of focused on making sure that we draw a line between racist people and people that one good for everybody. That's the bottom line. Look for as much as this is egregious and the things that have transpired for low type. I grew up in the south light. It's not. An uncommon for me to see racist people are know what it looks like or even even be surprised or shocked about certain things that tend to happen. The bottom line is this. I'm often emotional roller coaster like if you racist just be that come out publicly and be that enlist separate that and you be a part of the minority port society that we want to get to, and we think we already are at so all of that being said I'm with Steve Day like in this bringing a lot of people to the light, and the hateful ones are fighting their battle because they see slipping away. Score you're not GonNa hear me say this very very often, but I wanNA give major major kudos to a Lotta. White folks out there in America because if it wasn't for them, protesting and marching with black individuals if it wasn't for them, you know engaging in the kind of of of you know resistance to whatever level of oppression we as black people have been feeling this nation I. Don't think some of these folks will. will be coming out I. mean listen the back. In the day. They used to wear the sheets and used to cover the identity and their faces that we didn't know who the hell they were by virtue of that now. Some black people, a lot of black people will tell you they exist in corporate America. They could be the very people that you're working for the very people that you're talking to I happen to be. Be Blessed we happen to be blessed to not certainly not have that at this company is because we've seen the actions on the part of our executives. And what have you over continuous basis? Elevated level of sensitivity that this place has shown throughout the years deserves to be commended. There's always work to do. There is no perfect place. Make no about it, but I'm incredibly proud to be a part of the Walt Disney and And specifically the ESPN family in that regard having set all of that I'm in the minority, because the reality is vast people, there's a vast number of people of African. American descent in the United States of America that feel subjugated I wouldn't go so far as to say enslaved, but feel subjugated by bosses in corporate America people that say all the right things when the cameras are rolling, but behind the scenes they engage. Eight your and the conduct. Subjugation that they devote their voiceless. They don't have a voice in that regard, green. Marcus knows exactly what I'm talking about. And so because of that because of these times that we're living, what we're seeing is a populous within the United States of America that sees the dramatic shift, and there's so appalled, and and put and taken aback by what they see transpiring that they can't hide their vitriol. They're coming out of the dock because they're being forced out of the dog. We as black people. People have to appreciate the fact that couldn't happen without a vast number of white individuals in our society standing with us and saying you know what we see where the hell you coming from. If we didn't see it before we see it now, and we're with you, so you have that other segment of the population saying wait a minute we lose some of our own here. Some of our own alternative guests and the poor in this noxious. We gotTA speak up and as a result. Of the dock again I find that a cause for celebration doesn't bother me at all. If we wore, we wore. Let's get it on. I liked that. I want to leave it there for the moment again. Marty Smith is standing by Talladega. If there is any further information on the investigation, we will have it for you immediately, meanwhile, Steven as going to stay with us here for a few more minutes, and we'll get some football conversation as we go his feelings about the Dallas, cowboys have been well documented. This should be a very big day in Dallas. We will talk about it and why and then Lebron and other NBA players have until Wednesday to decide whether or not they're going to play. What should we expect? Woge will answer that question as we continue this out. GET THEM ON ESPN. GEICO. GETS YOU ACCESS TO LICENSED AGENTS? Twenty four

"vernay" Discussed on KQED Radio
"Back the years of their lives. They lost in prison. If ado Vernay also directed, the film Selma, withdraw Mataya chapter of the civil rights movement, and thirteenth a documentary about mass incarceration, and it's echoes of the errors of slavery. And Jim crow. Eva Duval, new, welcome back to fresh air. Did you know much about their story before you made this series only only what I knew as a teenager growing up in Compton, was on the west coast at the same time that these boys were on the east coast Harlem, I was all over the place. It was big news in Los Angeles. And it really. Was something that I, I on because these were black boys will look like me and my friends, they were around the same age and the same age as Corey wise. And so to, to hear of this, you know, dastardly despicable kind of devastating crime that had taken place, you know, was what everyone was talking about at one point, and particularly the word Wilding caught my attention because I didn't know what it was and I wanted to know what that meant. So I called a cousin in New York. And I asked what it was. And he said, we don't know. We think they meanwhile in out, and while an out is does not mean you know, gang raping women while it out, is hanging out, you know, kind of like being free for the night like just, you know, acting, you know, carefree, and I was have trouble when I try to translate urban slang into. To something else, but it is, it's not it's not a wolf pack of animal like the going into the park to torture, and demean and assault. And rape, people, that's not what Wyoming out means, so part of what we do in our piece is, is trying to kind of trace and track how while and out becomes Wilding becomes wolf. Pack becomes animals becomes, you know, a prison sentence for these five boys. All five were interviewed for the Ken burns documentary. But one of them was voice only he didn't want his face on camera. He wanted to keep his privacy, and I'm wondering how the five young how the five men, I mean they're in their mid forties. Now, how they felt about having the story told again and having the dramatic version out there, again, with actors playing them because on the one hand it's a story in which there charges were vacated, so they're, you know, they are not guilty at the same time they probably won't to put the story behind them to some degree if that's possible. So how did they feel about having you tell the story? were they are all individuals so they all felt differently about it you know you speak of antrim mcrae who did not go on camera for the bern stock i remember flying out to atlanta to see him you know he was the one with the most hesitation about doing it but he'll always say if my brothers are going to do it i'll do it and i remember talking with him and just really wanted to get a sense of who he was and how he felt about the process and he said to me at one point i'm probably going to have to move when it comes out and i said why do you think you have to move and he says i just don't want people to know and i said what like people on your street he said yeah i said so no one on the street that lives around you beautiful street in atlanta where he lives said no one knows who you are he says they know a mantra brown And I said, so they don't know your aunt McCray, and he says, no, I'm not answering McCray here and he was the first leave New York City. And he you know, has been really delivered about wanting to separate himself from that story when I speak with him. More recently, I think it's changed. He still is not gung ho about about any part of the process. But he is wanting the story to be out there and he is wanting to share it. He's wanting to speak his truth. And he is understands that although it's uncomfortable for him. It's helping other people as far as the other men Yussef was very. forthcoming and excited about telling the story as it was raymond and kevin i think the other gentlemen who had a little bit of hesitation was corey wise and the hesitation was only because of the process of making the film is you know not something that folks who don't make film really know about so it was a lot of questions about process and how deep he was going to have to go and telling his story and who he would be telling it to so it became important to him that it didn't feel like he was on the stand or speaking with police that the pro- the process was very intimate and that he got to know me and he got to know my co writers and that he felt comfortable in sitting down with us and telling us stories we he did not come into formal right writer's room we created a space for him that felt like a house so i literally rented a house and flew them in and they just basically felt like they were sitting around our house telling stories on the couch Ouch. So that the formality of the desk, and the chair in the office, that felt very 'institutional. We've broke that down. And we were able to get two stories that felt much more personal. I could see why after being disbelieved for so many years that some of the five men would feel uncomfortable having to go through the process of telling our story again. Yeah. Now, definitely that kind of the storytelling had happened all in an institutional framework. Right. They're telling it in a precinct and not being believed the story is being contorted and contrived and manufactured, and they're, they're being asked to answer details. And so this coercion is then taped, and now that becomes their story, they have to tell it to lawyers, and in court, you know, their story was always on pieces of legal documents and instruments of, of the law, that felt impersonal, and so part of what we tried to do is to make sure that they felt that this was a different kind of storytelling that they were in charge of that they could finally assert their voices and talk about whatever they wanted. I mean this, this is a four year process. So there were a lot of stories that had nothing to do with the particulars of the case, which is kind of the only story that people. Wanted to know and really got into who they were as people and how the case affected them and their families, you know, to this day. So from having talked to the five men give us an example of one of the story said, one of them told you about why they agreed to a confess turn. That was not true why they agreed to implicate themselves by saying that they did things that they didn't do. I don't know. I take issue with the word agreed. I mean we're talking about minors. We're talking about minors, who are in rooms alone. With police officers who are aggressive who have guns on their pelts badges who were told to mind and to respect and to follow orders from it keeps it gets under my skin. When people ask why why why would they do that? Why would you say something you wouldn't do? That's even Linda fairstein. Why will they? They said it they did it. And you it strips away the real dynamics of that room, which is what I try to show in the piece, you know, you, you, you know, how easily child can be manipulated. You know how easily child, you know can can be made to be afraid. And these thority figures did that to these. Voice, and so. The answer to the question of, how did they agree is? You know, I, I don't know if there was ever an agreement, I think it was a no disrespect to you. But it is a it was a manipulation so point accepted. But what were some of the ways that you think the boys were manipulated by the police, and prosecutors to give the false stories that they gave to give the false confessions that they made? Some of the ways that we show in the peace are that they were without their parents. They were not given food or water. They were asked to repeat the story and details were inserted into the story through repetition, it's hard to explain. So that's why I want to show you mean they were prompted to say things that they added. They were the stories were repeated and repeated again and again, by both parties. And details were added through repetition, and so that was one that's one of the ways many of the tactics that they described to us are in the peace and it when it comes alive and you actually see it being done cbo's trying to kind of pick up details. And, and also to please, who was asking the questions all under the kind of false belief that they would be allowed to leave if they cooperated, and that, quote unquote cooperation was, you know, picking up these additional details. I mean one of the first questions that one of the boys was asked was, what was she wearing have you didn't know Kevin Richardson started to describe whatever he thought a white woman would be wearing running through the park at one. Point. They didn't even know she was white. They get into these details of talking about trying to sit there and piece together a story and make the person in front of them happy with it. And there were a number of different techniques that were used on them that world least, successful the me reintroduce you, if you're just joining us, Mike guest is Eva Duval, and her new Netflix series, dramatizes, the story of the five men who are known as the central park five the convictions were vacated, they received a total of forty one million dollars in a settlement from the city of New York, and she tells their story in this new Netflix series, and it's called when they see us, we'll be right back after we take a short break. This is fresh air..
Emmy nomination voting underway
"KCRW sponsors include Netflix, presenting the original series, when they see us from Asia Duve Rene based on the true story of five teens who are falsely accused of a brutal attack in central park. Emmy eligible in all categories. I'm Kim masters. And this is the Hollywood breakdown joining me as Matt felony of the Hollywood reporter, and Matt EMMY voting is open. And, you know, there's always a lot of second guessing and campaigning, and it's all good this year. However, we're seeing the end of game of thrones. And that is a, a huge potential category killer in the best drama category. And for that reason we have seen other series that do might have been competitive kind of stay out of the way the eligibility for the Emmys ends at the end of may. So you often will see a lot of shows premiering in may just so that they can get into that window to be eligible this year. We saw the opposite in that best drama series category. The Handmaid's tale is premiering in June and stranger things. Netflix is premiering in July. And those were two shows that typically would be in the EMMY race Handmaid's tale, obviously was the first streaming series to ever win. In the drama series. Emmy category this year. They're both steering clear of game of thrones. Because the expectation is that game of thrones is just going to run the category and win and went out. I mean it would be the you know job well done award. However, you know, I I'm going to confess that I not a person who watched game of thrones. But I do watch my Twitter feed and mandate. I see blowback about the way that series ended. Yeah, I think there was a lot of negativity. And I think people were surprised by who ended up on that iron throne, but I don't think ultimately voters will care about the negativity. I think that this is a game changing mammoth moment in television. People say, we will never see a show again. Like EMA thrones. I, I don't know if that's true, but voters are going to without in my opinion voters are going to go for the show and, and give it the, the this year, I wonder if it had been vulnerable. Maybe the strategy was bad. You go ahead and compete against it, but who could afford? Seen that potential vulnerability. Meanwhile, you know there's the limited series category. That is very competitive when we see HBO rolling out Chernobyl net flicks, rolling out the central park, five drama series from ABC Vernay, when they see us, and they are coming up with kind of, you know, interesting claims to bolster the profile of how popular how highly rated, you know, the metrics may not stand up to too much scrutiny. But this is the game that is played. I'm always very skeptical of anything that Netflix says because they do not have any third party verification for their ratings claims but they claim that when they see us is the most popular show on net flicks every day since it debuted in the US, which would be pretty significant, considering that they have, you know, things like friends, and the office that are perpetual popular, and then HBO came out with this dubious thing that turnober was the highest rated show on HBO in its history. And they were using some IMDB ranking that purported to assess fans and critics. And I think people just kinda laughed at that big little lies. Maybe you know, I would say for sure that both of them are really well reviewed and very high impact, especially in the case of when they see us we'd seen Linda fairstein him roundly, the sex crimes in New York being hounded out of her foundation and. And other gigs. Now, the one of the prosecutors the this is have think people are finally seeing that what happened in that case through. I mean it's been the subject of documentaries. It's not news. But David Verna through the dramatization has really shown the kind of impact that entertainment can have in the real world. Yeah. And it really shows this category of limited series, and how much it's grown over the past few years. Remember, this is a category that the academy basically did away with combined it with made for TV movies, because there weren't as much of these being made as there used to be. Now there are so many limited series that this category is absolutely packed. If you look at just the Fossey Verron program on FX that got a lot of critical attention Showtime, made a lot of noise with escape Denham Maura HBO has turnober as you mentioned in sharp objects had Amy Adams and then true detective which is in this category, and is somewhat diminished from its heyday. But that, you know, had an amazing performance by. Marshall Ali in that. And that doesn't even include the George Clooney thing catch twenty two which got a lot of attention. So there's a ton of amazing limited series that are competing against each other. Yeah, I would say outstanding performance by Maharshtra Elliot's redundant at this point. Thank you, Matt, thank you. That's Matt Bellamy editorial director of the Hollywood reporter he joins me this Monday at one thirty on the business. I'm Kim masters. And this is the Hollywood breakdown KCRW sponsors include Showtime, presenting the comedy series kidding starring Jim Carey in what Rolling Stone says is the part, he was born to play more at S H, O dot com slash f y c.

"The IRS engaged in zero lobbying while it basically pouted all the bills that it path. In fact, it bragged over and over that nearly twenty percent of its bills were enacted every single year on average, and it really was engaged in extensive lobbying to push those bills forward that really is its primary purpose to put those bills or to get them into law, and I would say on this question of the task forces in going the task force meetings versus the public portions, they broadcast just take a look at Dana Millbank, call him about his invitation to his tended task force. And what happened when he was blocked because Alec doesn't want the public to see or hear the corporations voting as equals with the lawmakers on. In fact, you know, it's quite clear, you can see it in state after state can look up almost any state newspaper and see how that Alec agenda moved in those states with very little notice in many instances, very few hearings and Bill moyers actually the great documentary on it called United States of Alec which really showcase I'm how little public input. There is into the agenda. Once it becomes a priority for these corporate. Nations and for Alec another documentary that touched on Alec was thirteenth the documentary by Eva Duvernois about the nature of America's prison systems for a lot of people. The first time they heard of Alec was after the incident with Trayvon Martin in Florida after he was killed by George Zimmerman the documentary thirteenth, which is on net. Flicks touched on this topic. Here is part of what was set in thirteenth tonight a deadly shooting in Sanford police have the gun they've got the shooter, but they have not arrested him. George Zimmerman armed with a gun. Follow this quote unquote suspicious kid after the dispatcher told him not to. They ended up on the ground in a fight and George Zimmerman's shot and killed Trayvon. The police could not arrest Zimmerman because of this Florida law called stand your ground, but says you can kill someone if you feel threatened even though it was Zimmerman who had pursued Martin throughout the neighborhood with a gun clip from the Eva do Vernay documentary thirteenth now to be clear. Stand your ground is not just a law in the state of Florida other states have similar standing around policies either in their state laws or even in their jury instructions. Shelby. What's the connection between Alec and stand your ground? Why did that become a priority for the organization? Well, it didn't become a priority for the organization as I explained before one of the ways that models are introduced as that lawmakers can introduce them and a Florida lawmaker introduced it. And it went through the Alec procedure and process since then this was in twenty twelve since then, you know, Alec has a new CEO we have new in different procedures. We don't even. Focus on those issues anymore. So we don't focus on guns. We don't focus on those type of issues. So yeah, we that went through the procedure that it went through. I completely understand. I'm a minority woman from an inner city. I completely understand how people feel and how they took that. And it also broke my heart personally was about stand your ground that time that became a model policy for Alec. What was it about that that the members kind of latched onto well before my time, but what I can surmise just from what we know from public policy in history around criminal Justice. You know, let's remember a lot of this tough on crime stuff was I can remember growing up in Detroit in the nineties on a lot of this was pushed by Bill Clinton, and Hillary Clinton and Democrats and Republicans the idea that you needed to be quote, unquote, tough on crime, and since then people have through research through engaging with different ideas through data. We've learned that that's not necessarily always the best Lucien, which is why different models and policies and research has.
