Robert Caro on How He Does It

"Robert Carroll joins us now he is the Pulitzer Prize. Winning author of many books. New Book is called working researching interviewing and writing. He's also the author of the years of Lyndon Johnson four volumes of them thus far and the powerbroker Robert Moses and the fall of New York Bob. Thanks so much for being here. Pleasure to be here all right so everyone has been greatly anticipating a volume five of the years of Johnson. But instead you have written this other book working researching interviewing writing. Why did you decide to do this? Ever since the powerbroker I kept myself out of the book. I don't think the word I appears in there many times. If soon as the book came out people started asking me. What was it like ten of you Robert Moses and I realized that I should have put in something to tell people what that was like so for like forty five years. I've been hearing that question and people ask me what it's like to work in presidential libraries were. Can you find out from interviews? This isn't the adviced anybody but it's sort of. I said we'll I WANNA give people some glimpses into how I work so. I took time out to do this book now. I'm back doing the volume. I mean it's an interesting question about interviewing Robert Moses because you had read five sessions which women seven sessions with him. Which was very different from the Johnson. Biography where he was dead already for several years. Before you could get started and I'm curious you write about it a bit in working what the difference was like for you. Writing the book writing a biography of a person who was still alive versus writing a biography of someone who was already gone in one sense. It's great to write about someone who's still alive because you get to meet Moses. Didn't talk to me for the first couple of years of the book. Then we had seven interviews. Soon as I started asking questions. Pamela the interviews were over but they will long sessions and I really got to look at him with Johnson. You felt okay. I came along just too late. He had died just three years before was great about him was that he died so young he would have been only sixty seven when I started. He darted sixty four that everyone was still alive. He had I think twelve people in Johnson City High School. When he was there they were all there to be viewed. But you can't make up for not meeting and talking to the person writing about you just can't do feel that absence and working on the Johnson. Yes you do everything you can to overcome that you know you interview the people closest to him over and over and over again constantly asking them what was he like. If I was standing next to you what would I see him doing? So you try to get a feeling of him now. We have these telephone transcripts where you hear him talking hundreds and hundreds of hours you can listen to him talking and see how he deals with people and how he gets what he wants from people. That's always amazing to me. Has that changed the way that you've been doing your research having access to those types a change the writing of history in general like on the Gulf of Tonkin incident which has been sort of mystery. What really happened there. How many attacks were there? On our destroyers. You know that led Johnson to launch these launch bombing attacks on North Vietnam. Now you actually hear the communications between Robert McNamara. The Secretary of Defense Cincpac the admiral at Honolulu and the commander of the fleet. That's an in Viet Nam. You hear this and what was really going on in real time the other aspect of your interviewing that. I thought was so interesting that you write about in this new book working is the delicacy of interviews and especially when you get to touchy subjects. And they'll you didn't interview Johnson for the book did Interview Lady Bird and tell the story about how you and when you approached the subject of Johnson's longtime affair with Alice Marsh. Well when Johnson is in the Pacific during World War. Two year allowed easing Australia. You're allowed one telephone. Call the senator from Texas. Just Johnson has to decide whether to run again for the House of Representatives or to run for senator. I'm going through all the correspondents and suddenly in the middle of it. There is a telegram from someone sewing. Alice I've never heard of Alice. She appears in no book and it says Lyndon everyone else that happened to me in the White House. Everyone else thinks you should run for the Senate. I think you should run for the house. Please try to cool love Alice. I said WHO is Alice. Who was the person that he makes the only one telephone call? And who's giving political advice which he follows shortly after that? So that's you know. An example of going through the papers by luck her sister and best friend show up at the Johnson Library and ask to see me and I go down to see them and they say you know we wanna tell you about a woman named Alice Marsh. We don't want to portray to some Bimbo. She was really very important in Johnson's life. And they told me the whole story of this Lauren and significant relationship and his life. So how do you then? Ask Lady Bird. You know panel. That's the only interview I ever had in my life where I couldn't bring myself to look at the person I was interviewing. Alice was a small town girl. She turned herself into the brilliant Washington. Hostess Brilliant Brilliant Salons and she came from a little town called Morlin. Now no one would go to the mall. And unless they were looking for inflammation analysis a little town in the middle of nowhere and I never know I went up there and we learned about her. And how remarkable she was but all of a sudden we have a mutual friend. Who lived in Morlin? Who calls me in a panic and says the bird in Texas? Everybody Calls Lady Bird Bird. Bird and always. You've been in Marlin. So she knows you know about Al. Assad said well that had to be if it doesn't concern me but her secretary then shows up at my desk in the reading room says Mrs Johnson would like to see you out at the ranch this weekend. We had been meeting in her office so we sit down at the dining table. She's at the head of the table. I might her right. Hand my stenographer's notebook like like the one you use is is down on my right hand taking notes and without preamble. She starts to talk about Alice Quiz. How elegance she was how sophisticated she was how she taught. Linden things and everything that she taught him. He followed the rest of his life. You don't hear these lawn when she met him. He was this new congressman very awkward with Lorne Gang Leo Arms. She said turn them into an asset. Always wear shirts with French. Cuffs and very nice cufflinks. So when people's attention is cool to them it's called in in a in a good way. She told him. We're kind of Necktie to favor. Countess Myers Tie. But most of all at crucial elements in life. It was her advice that he followed an in a number of cases one in particular. It's not exaggerating. Very much to say she saved. His career is takes a moment to tell. But it's it's interesting his early careers financed by a very fierce huge Texas contractor. Herman Brown Brown and Root and Herman was prepared to keep financing his Roy and in return Johnson was getting huge contracts for Brown and root when all of a sudden they had a falling out Lyndon Johnson was getting them authorization to build a dam which they wanted but Linden wandered low. Rent Housing Project built in Boston in what was a very poor Mexican American neighborhood. The houses in that neighborhood were owned by Herman Brown. The tenants were paying rent to him. They were very profitable and he was enraged at Linden wanted to condemn them for his housing project and his chief lobbyist and his chief lawyer talked. Instead you know Herman was about to turn on Linden and when Herman turned on you he never turned back when Alice here is about this and invites them both down to Greatest Stadium Virginia. She sits down at her table. And says why don't you just compromise give Herman the damaging winds and the land and all of a sudden everything was okay. So Lady Bird starts talking not only about her elegance. She says the quotes are in the book. She was so sophisticated so beautiful. I remember her neck succession of wonderful beautiful dresses and me in well not so wonderful. And and then she said you know Lyndon Basically Linden always followed Alice's vice during that whole interview I have to say my head. Just stay down and I took notes. I couldn't look at her so that was done. The next week we went back to ordinary interview she just launched into it without you. Even though I you know I sometimes think I know something about politics. I'm really glad I don't have to write about. Women never understood why she did

"The host that is not named using the host's name. Maybe I should give it a name. The the clarify put America first. He that's true. That's a good point. Okay. So we'll ring name the show clarity clarity over agreement. Our? Not exactly sexy have to say gonna draw in vast number of listeners. Hi, everybody Dennis Prager here. And I had on today. James Patterson was the last thing with gentleman Robbins. Yes, James Robbins. Right for the conservative onto the few who writes for the USA today reading his book. America's past finished, Betty free. Dan, by the way. I mentioned I think I mentioned right on the air mentioned privately that she compared house von to inmates Nazi cuts trae shin camp because both had their identities suppressed. You know, what is it? Give away. I'm gonna get back to the. The racing America's past issue in the moment. Do you know what is moral giveaway? When you hear the following phrase? You know that the person you're speaking to is not morally serious. All right. This is that this is very serious invite -ment because it is so common that I surely indicting some nice people, but. Remember the clarity over agreement. Our? Show. Here. It is. Auschwitz and hero Sheba. That is a giveaway that a person is not morally serious that they speak in moral terms to feel good about themselves. But they haven't done any serious thinking about moral issues about good and evil. The lumping of Hiroshima Auschwitz is moral idiocy of the first order Betty free. Does it in the last chapter of her book when she talks about other issues than feminism? The and of course, the obscene immoral Warren, Vietnam. You're not morally serious, if you say that either you can say, it was a mistake and be morally serious, you could say we should not have gone there. Good people can debate that. But there was no debate on was was a moral imperative or just immoral and obscene. That is when began element tie it in to the book. James Robbins book that began the sixties began the rewriting of the American narrative, the left used to things the civil rights battle and the war in Viet nam to smear the last best hope. On earth. That's that's what had happened. Liberals put up with it. Liberals have been cowards all of my life. That was not a not every liberal liberal establishment. They didn't go along with it. They didn't spell America. A M E R. I K K K A or just a presume fascist using the German spelling of America. But they didn't attack the left. And now we see the fruition. Half of America's millennials think this country is founded in sin founded in evil. There are no heroes. It's a very tough coal. There are two nation in this nation because the only thing that made America nation given how diverse it's ethnicities. The only thing that made a nation was shared ideas. If you don't share ideas, you don't have an American nation. So that's in nutshell. The civil war that we are engaged in now. You know, I do a fireside chat each week just between half a million a million views each week. And seasonally just put in Dennis Prager fireside chat pre-university fireside chat. And it's interesting. How many questions come from young people outside of the United States? The last one I recorded was actually more than half the questions almost all the questions come from young people teenagers, very young. And the. The majority came from abroad. So somebody I Don I don't remember what country he or she was from. But asks do I think that America will the will have a civil war meaning violence of war? Am I said, which is my private and public answer? I pray NUP. But I used to say, no. This is a change. This is a very sad change the rift. In America is is exit stencil if they love that word with regard to global warming. But I'll tell you what existentialist threat this an existential threat to the existence to be redundant existential means of the United States of America. That is how serious the left we challenges and the Democratic Party has caved in entirely. Utterly and thoroughly. So bad is America that in in one of the truly unbelievable? Positions. Is reparations to blacks in the United States for slavery. The staggering number. We should get the percentage what percentage of American males died to end slavery to which of course, the left says they did to win slavery. They die to keep the union together. But the union was rendered a nonunion because of slavery. So the just avoiding the the obvious calls interestingly, we have a video preview on the origins of the civil war, which are slavery and. Every single southern states seceded said that's a c that said it was because slavery. If the north had buckled on slavery. They wouldn't have been Shiva war. So of course, it was about slavery. That's that's how big the rift is we we are two nations at this time. And here's here is in a sense. His have used in while the corker. There's no word is though use of the use of it. But I think it's it's somewhat of somewhat cake. Here's the topper. Better. The left blames Donald Trump for the disunity. Where was I just reading about a mail sent to me? Find it for you. They petitioned the school. I don't think it's a college. I think it's high school that kids wear ethnic sashes. At their graduation. So for example, a one kid said, you know, my parents came here from Guatemala. I wanna wear the quantum flag flag sash or something like that. I was thinking. That's new. Why why wouldn't you want to wear something that celebrated the.

"Here or there i don't i think once you have a guy in there who's in the vein of every president that we've had prior to this one i think you'll come back yeah i think it will cease to have all the weight that it has on it this year i think where i struggle with it is i'm sitting here as a born redskins fan been a redskins fan all my life of all thirty two teams the redskins have been one of the few along with the patriots that have been the most fervently backing of the president's stance with regards to the anthem and then i look at the eagles who are one to hate winning this culture war with woke savagery and i look at them like you have you ever have a friend that has this beautiful wife or girlfriend and every time he comes in you have to just like really really right in front of my face going to do that that's all i'm looking at the eagles right now i'm supposed to hate you right now but i really i fully fully support what they're doing the eagles were smart in their response ignored it they didn't deal with it they just there and we were asked yesterday what the nfl do the nfl should not respond to this the nfl's pressing need is for owners and players to get together and do what the nba has done well the don't talk about donald trump the pa issued a statement which i thought was actually a little unfortunate where they said you know unfortunately as a result of this the eagles had a lot of community service stuff they were coming down and doing all that stuff had to be cancelled when the statement in my opinion should have been well.

"Winning the super bowl the way they want it let's not let that accomplishment of things that you will have for the rest of your life and people always call you a champion for the rest of your life let's not let someone uninviting you to their house take away from that moment because i think winning a championship winning a super bowl or winning a stanley cup winning a world series winning nba championship or national championship is way bigger than getting invited to the white house especially with trump in there in my opinion now lebron james is certainly entitled to his opinion we'll i talked about this yesterday everybody on every sport station talked about this resign you talked about this as well and my overwhelming feeling about it and this is set as someone who has been really fortunate i've gone to the white house with a bunch of different presidents i've been invited to a variety of things sports related and not sports related and yet have continued to troll for invitations which i do because every time i go my spirit soars i just love being there and and i think it's sad i think it's sad that it has been you know we're watching this invitation there's no constitutional guarantee for sports teams to go to this thing but we're watching this thing just devolve oslo said yes on his show we we're watching the tradition of the white house invite die in real time that's too must not necessarily i think that president i think will the different president where this thing isn't politicized because a lot of things have been political resident but this thing was i said this yesterday all the other presidents who wore politicians always been politicized politicize this not not the by there's always been athlete.

"Because nobody expect pressure to win right people were expecting him to win he'd absolutely be concerned but in this case if they get swept nobody's pointing fingers a great point i mean lebron the story of this plato's abroad has already been written it oh my god how did he get those guys to the final right with no expectation to do anything on their spec win the night do you to do tours ooh i don't expect it to be close i expect the i don't think so and you know why i think that kevin durant is gonna take it upon himself because he was killed after game one your johnny shown it is right here to see coming he was killed in game one game two he was very efficient very efficient but he didn't go off this is true i think kevin durant says you know what this is supposed to be lebron james's kind of party for cleveland in this year's finals i can ruin this in the biggest stage of state i think having rankles often so i think that the warriors win as well but then i think cleveland wins four because the warriors will not care the warriors will know that eventually they're going to win this and they may as well win at home but i think that cleveland loses tonight they'll lebron you know i i don't bet against him i don't i don't bet against the brown i think there's a chance the jr smith shows up to the coliseum in oakland mistaking where the series actually is on the way good on that that's as with him.

"How did you come about counts under state law of new york with various sexual offenses and in all states the degree of those offenses depend on really two different factors one factor is the degree of coercion whether it is as we all remembered on one extreme somebody who was completely consensual but was underage when the old days was called statutory rape too whether somebody is forced to do something at the end of a gun or a knife and that's one of the elements that determines whether it's third degree second degree of first degree and the second is the degree of consent as to whether or not somebody can give consent and that's where we've seen on other college campuses and others whether somebody is intoxicated in something as therefore unable and the person charged in the latter category has to among other things know that the person is incapable of providing consent so the degree of consent and the degree of coercion separates they're in second i he's charged with one degree of i i think one degree of third and then a nother crime when it doesn't include one form of sexual encounter but another form and that's what they're all felonies they're all serious they all have lots of jail time but there are nuanced differences in the proof beyond reasonable doubt the state has to put forward are we likely to see that's a new york charge that we likely to see similar charges in california that will depend some of the states have statutes of limitations laws that will have expired based on some of the allegations some have statute of limitations had been changed to be forever mostly in american history of the law the only crime that had been without a real statue imitations had been murder but now sexual assaults are being changed legislatures so it depends on what state and what the law the statute is and we'll see and of course there's also been allegations that there is a federal investigation people have scratched their head about that one i think that's when looking.

"We we could move on from there so the the supreme the most recent supreme court decision to me that was very consequential was the baker was allowed not to bake the cake for the gay couple and this went to all the way to supreme court and this was not close this was seventy two this this was a big one can you explain it to me bearing in mind that that that it's i don't have an objection as much as i have a question if the law of the land is that gay marriage is perfectly permissible how do you do this how do you say well because of you i'm not going to bake this cake so i think there's a lot of misunderstanding about what the supreme court did but the key to people to understand it is the actual vote is seven two two people should be scratching their head and said wait all those people that we believe to be strong advocates for equal right in the majority okay so to understand what the court did you have to understand that they didn't really rule on whether it's okay to discriminate against same sex marriages and not baking cakes what they ruled on was the fact that the the the civil rights commission of the state of the colorado state process started flawed from the beginning when they indicated by what they said and how they frame the issue that they weren't prepared to give religious rights the same weight as other rights such as the right to association the right to be in a marriage of your choice basically they said this was a civil rights that was very wrong because they started the process with a bias against giving religious rights equal consideration they basically send it back and said do a better job and there's lots of language especially of those who are the the justices people consider to be liberal that indicated that on the merits this might not come out the same way.
