"I met Baxter And underneath Pellegrini Well Denise we're going to switch now from the fed and to fashion That's right And it's been almost 50 years amazing really Since the creation of the wrap dress And Diane von furstenberg is founder and chairman of DVF And she's also deeply involved with philanthropy with her husband very diller She helped create the high line here in New York City for example And she's also raising money for the Ellis island foundation And von furstenberg tells David rubinstein she was surprised about the success of the wrap dress And here she is on the David Rubenstein show peer to peer conversations Yeah I mean you know people say I created the wrap dress which is true But really the red dress created me Because because of that dress I became the woman I wanted to be I became independent I by being independent it paid for my children and education It paid for my house in the country paid for my apartment So it made me free and it made me liberated And it was the time of the women's liberation So and because it was addressed the more confident I became and the more confidence I was I was passing on this confidence to other women that I would go around and wrap around women's bodies And so in a sense now that I look back none of them and all the women and so on I look back it's almost like I was a conduit You know I was a conduit for confidence for many generation of women So how long did it take to develop the wrap dress Was it something that came to you like that Or was it many years How did it develop When I was 20 I went out of college and I didn't know what I wanted to do But I knew the kind of woman I wanted to be I wanted to be a woman in charge So how would those going to be my door So I thought maybe fashion So at first I worked in Paris for a fashion photographer's agent And that got me wow I discovered the world of fashion And then I met the father of a friend of the broad of my boyfriend whatever In Italy and he said you know you should come and discover the other side of fashion where we make fashion So then I discovered how all about printing you know how you buy an artwork and how you put it in repeat and how you print it And you work with the colorist And learn how to do a color palette So it was really a craft And so I didn't think that any of this was going to be useful to me at all But it was very interesting I then went to America for the first time to visit my boyfriend my mother gave me a ticket to go to New York and visit him And I discovered New York and I couldn't believe it It was I couldn't believe how I said I have to come back here And also while I was in New York because my boyfriend then there was a young very attractive prince So he was very much in demand in New York He was very good-looking And because he was in the man and I came as his girlfriend all the designer wanted to lend me clothes and blah blah blah And so while I was there here I mean I stayed about a month I think I discovered so much I discovered New York I decided I discovered all these young designers And when I went back all I could think about is how do I get back to New York How do I get back to you And when I went back to work in the factory all of a sudden I looked at everything there and I said oh there is my door There's an opportunity Let me try to make some easy little dresses that I can then go and sell in America And that's how I started So I would stay late at night with a pattern maker and make some samples and so on But for those who are watching who may not be fashion experts what exactly is a wrap dress What was so unique about You wrap your body Okay So it started from these little sweaters that ballerinas were You know when they when they get cold And it's like cookie mono Again Japanese kimono But it's very tight And because it was Jersey you wrap it very tight That was the difference And it was just a wrap dress And it was printed because I was in this print factory So it was a first it was a wrapped up with a skirt And it did really well And then I said oh I've got to turn it into a dress And then it became addressed And before I knew at the age of 26 I was making 25,000 rub dresses a week And you became very famous And I became a thing There's a story that newsweek was going to put Gerald Ford president of the United States on the cover and they bought him for you For winning his primary Yes but then I discovered that it was the month of March And the months of March is usually when they want subscription renewals And so they would think that maybe I would be a better person It might be better Okay You're the princess of New York because you're very young You're in your 20s You're made a lot of money by any normal standards and you're the queen of the fashion world right That's right right So how do you top that There are no such thing as going to the top up top and continuing to go to the top Also I think it's really important I always make a point to tell people that sometimes when you are at the very top that time I was on the cover of newsweek and on the front page of The Wall Street Journal and everybody was buying my dresses And I was acclaimed as the big success I myself already knew that things were so easy because in a way I had saturated the market You know Right so everybody had a wrap dress and nobody needed to buy another wrap dress That's right Everybody had many rap dressing Okay so did your business go down Yes Then I license that I you know and then I mean life is like you know you go as you go So I license my dress business to a company that I thought had more experience than I did Then they continued to develop it And I decided now I'm going to be asking And I started a cosmetic company But while you were doing that you led the very interesting life of a socialite in the 70s in New York You're meeting with Andy Warhol and other people What was that life like Everybody famous who was young was a friend of yours Well New York City in the 70s was many things For one thing it was very dirty It was very.
The Abortion Debate in America Is a Good vs. Evil Debate
"Looking at here's USA Today. Headline. Fate of roe V wade, court signals support for Mississippi abortion ban. Striking terror in the hearts of leftists everywhere. You know, the abortion debate in America that we've had for decades. Strikes me as the quintessential example of good versus evil. This really is a good versus evil debate. And that's not to say that everybody who struggles with the issue of abortion or that feels it's a complicated. I mean, I got into it yesterday. I'm an advocate of the Texas and the length of time, 15 weeks or 6 weeks, the Texas abortion van, I believe it's 6 weeks. The Mississippi abortion ban is 15. So from the time of pregnancy to the time a heartbeat is detected, is ostensibly a period of time that a woman is permitted to get an abortion. And The Wall Street Journal essentially favors that position. And I'm struggling because there's a word here that comes to mind that shouldn't probably apply to the innocent lives that are taken every year and that is compromise. What's a compromise? Is there any compromise? And of course, to staunch pro lifers, how can you compromise the fate of millions of unborn
Fresh update on "wall street journal" discussed on Weekend Edition Saturday
"Dot com This is weekend edition from NPR news I'm Scott Simon BuzzFeed the media company Started out with cute kittens Moved on to a Pulitzer Prize Now it's headed into the stock market But it's not the first time the company has tried to go public and the path this time around has raised questions about the future of digital news We're joined now by Ben Mullen media reporter at The Wall Street Journal Mister Mullen thanks so much for being with us Thanks for having me Scott BuzzFeed tried to go public a few years ago what happened if you could remind us Yeah basically there were a bunch of trends that were unfavorable to their underlying business which then was primarily based on advertising Over the last decade or so there have been a lot of companies in the digital media space like vice BuzzFeed group 9 media big part of their business model was predicated on selling advertising Companies like Alphabet Inc.'s Google and Facebook they were sucking up more and more of that ad revenue every year And so part of the problem was they were planning to go public They had these aggressive projections for their revenue growth but they were leaning into a business that was increasingly going to some of their competitors To put the point on it I gathered their BuzzFeed's only going to be getting $16 million in contrast to the $1 billion for which actual Springer for example bought Politico How is this going to affect their ambitions for the future Well BuzzFeed has these really aggressive growth targets They're planning to grow their revenue by 25% Every year for the next 5 years And they have less cash to spend on investing in new initiatives new ventures than it's going to be harder for them to hit those aggressive growth targets $16 million is not a lot of money I mean it's not even a second rate second basement on a major league team So why the IPO now Well I think they needed to go public for a few reasons to basically raise money to do mergers and acquisitions Their investors who've been in the company for a long time I mean BuzzFeed's been around for more than a decade now So a lot of those early investors want an exit They want to return on their money And another thing that Jonah Freddy was able to secure as part of this public listing was control over the company So now that BuzzFeed is a public company he has secured control over it through these voting shares Tell us about the role of Jonah peretti cofounder of BuzzFeed chief executive often referred to as a colorful character Yeah he's this really interesting guy He started as an engineering student He was a teacher as well And he basically went on to cofound Huffington Post And then ultimately he started BuzzFeed is kind of a side project while he was still a Huffington Post And he was trying to tap into the board of work network People who are just sitting at their desks and are really bored and want to look at cute kittens And that ended up growing into a multi-million dollar media empire Does what's happened with this offering being for the vastly reduced price that they had anticipated and certainly what they had desired does that suggest that the future of advertising supported news and information might be limited Yeah I think that the fact that BuzzFeed and its presentation to investors said that they were going to lean on a few different types of revenue they were going to sell you pots and pans through their tasty vertical which is those delicious hands and pans videos They have advertising obviously a licensing revenue stream So I think even BuzzFeed kind of knows that they're not going to become the company that they want to be unless they do more than advertising Ben Mullen is media reported The Wall Street Journal Thanks so much for being with us Thank you Scott Brexit has aggravated tensions between France and the UK that clashed over fishing rights submarine deals and the passage of migrants through the channel between them Making matters worse is what seems to be a personality clash between president Emmanuel Macron and British prime minister Boris Johnson who seems at times to dismiss Francis concerns I just think it's time for some of our dearest friends around the world to pronate grip about.
Supreme Court Seems Ready to Launch Social and Political Earthquakes
"Headlines on the row case yesterday. It's actually the dobbed case about row. From The Wall Street Journal, Supreme Court majority shows openness to Mississippi's precedent breaking abortion law. From The New York Times, Supreme Court appears open to upholding Mississippi abortion restriction from The Washington Post. Supreme Court seems inclined to uphold Mississippi abortion law that would undermine roe V wade. And from The Wall Street Journal editorial page, an abortions crossroad at the Supreme Court, this part of their editorial this morning. These columns have long supported the policy of legal abortion before viability albeit uneasily. As technology has revealed the development of the fetus. I don't agree with that, but they are libertarian leaning at The Wall Street Journal. I'm Catholic. I think it's wrong. I believe if you're pregnant, you have to have the baby and given the rise of safe haven laws across the United States. If you don't want the baby, go give the baby away. And it will be well taken care of my loving parents. The burden of pregnancy is simply not enough to justify ending that life. It is very inconvenient. It's very hard. It may lead to shame and cost and some sorrow and some risk to the mother. I know all that. But that life is life. And if you get to a doctor, the doctor will take care of you for free if necessary. Give you a prenatal care. And when the baby is born, you can give that baby away. There's no downside. None whatsoever. Safe haven laws. They came up a lot in the Supreme Court argument yesterday because they matter. The burden that used to be lifelong is no longer life long. The safe haven laws are in every state now. You can give away that baby. And it's up to the church, by the way, especially the Catholic Church in any church that has been pro life all these 50 plus years. It's up to us to step up and add even more resources and make them even more available to women having a crisis pregnancy. One they didn't plan on, one that they fear, one that may lead to abuse. And it's important for us to be there for them in a way that we haven't ever been before and perhaps it will unleash a flood of taking care of children in need and finding new adoption of possibilities and finding new parents and taking care of those moms. Crisis pregnancy centers, thank you all these years for waiting. Not over yet. But I think the day is coming when people are going to rush to you to help because they know for sure. It's the only alternative for moms and crisis.
WSJ Editorial Board Echoes Alexander Bickel: Roe v. Wade Was a Mistake
"Coming. I don't know what's gonna happen with roe V wade. But we've got the Supreme Court getting ready to hear arguments in a case called Dobbs versus Jackson women's health. That could lead to the overturning of roe V wade. Now, I have argued for years. Obviously, I'm pro life. So anybody who's not pro life, you're going to say, well, Gallagher, the reason you disagree with roe V wade is that you're a pro life guy. You're somebody. Listen, the bottom line is, roe is one of the worst decisions in the history of the Supreme Court. With a stroke of their pen, the Supreme Court overturned 50 state laws and turned abortion into this political war. That nonetheless could not be settled politically through the ballot box. As The Wall Street Journal points out, their editorial this week, the great legal scholar Alexander bakel wrote in the morality of consent, the Supreme Court simply invented a trimester medical analysis. The court never said why? It was a mistake. Roe V wade is a mistake.
The Omicron Non-Emergency
"The non emergency, according to The Wall Street Journal. The World Health Organization obviously is saying that the new variant poses a high new risk. And that beyond the large mutations in its spike protein, that we don't know that if this has increased transmissibility or could make vaccine antibodies less effective. South African doctors say that the cases are milder and cause different symptoms noticeably fatigue. Many are young people who might be expected to have milder symptoms. But breakthrough infections have also been mild. I don't think it will blow over. But I think it will be a mild disease hopefully. Despite all of this, European countries are now entertaining another round of lockdowns. Because they worried that socialized healthcare systems could get overwhelmed. This is The Wall Street Journal I'm reading from. 92% of adults in America have COVID antibodies. 92%. As of September from vaccines or prior infection. That means only 8% of America hasn't yet been exposed to the virus. Governor Cathy hoka, who of course is trying to win another term, she hasn't even won one term. Let's just say, when a term as governor, she's the accidental governor, she's like Gerald Ford. She she thinks that you become governor of New York by sewing fear and having total shutdowns and lockdowns, somehow that is something that state of New York wants.
October WSJ Article: 'San Francisco Has Become a Shoplifter’s Paradise'
"So a couple Jason Riley from Wall Street Journal last month October he wrote a piece out how San Francisco has become a shoplifter Paradise Thefts under $950 are effectively decriminalized Okay now you can get a lot of stuff under a 150 bucks I don't know if you've noticed lately TVs are way under $950 I'm not saying they're like the greatest TVs Or they have all the great features But you can a 100% get a big flat screen TV for well under $950 So now if you shoplift TV because you're part of looting or grab and go or fun and games where everyone call you get a TV and it's under 9 $50 you basically you won't get prosecuted They're gonna let you go Why Because they have now this ridiculous idea Prop 47 California bout initiative theft of less than $950 in goods is treated as a nonviolent misdemeanor and rarely prosecuted So stores don't want to get sued they tell people we don't even do it anymore But now when you've got marauding mobs of people going in and stealing things all at once because they're organizing on social media and they're going hey let's meet up at target at 7 o'clock and we'll all go in at the same time and just overwhelm them Four men on Wednesday in California and Santa Rosa fled with $20,000 of merchandise from Apple store In San Jose $40,000 of items were stolen from a Lululemon store That's right they're even stealing yoga pants now I thought yoga pants were so sacred that nobody would ever want to steal them I just know there's certain things in our society that we just don't touch Yoga pants being among those things But clearly not they went and grabbed those as well In Chicago they stole over what I mean how much was it in Chicago now Can I go $25,000 at a village shopping center It's happening all across the country And so now what's happening is employees are quitting as a turning around saying I don't want to deal with this Why would
Wall Street Journal Editorial Board Explains Joe Biden's COVID Failures
"First, these statistical numbers, I mean, The Wall Street Journal editorial board writes President Biden may not recall what he said during a 2021 campaign debate last fall, but Americans should, anyone who's responsible for that many deaths should not remain as president of the United States of America. COVID deaths this year have now surpassed the toll in 2020. Wall Street Journal points out it would shame that mister Biden has done no better than Donald Trump in defeating COVID. Despite the benefit of vaccines better therapies and more clinical experience. The left politicized COVID by holding mister Trump responsible for a disease that was always going to be hard to defeat. Biden said, if the president had done his job, all the people would still be alive. The Wall Street Journal says that was his false as anything mister Trump has ever said. But most journalists and experts agreed with the basic premise, mister Trump had blood on his hands. The world's top medical journals called for mister Trump's defeat. The Wall Street Journal writes about Biden's COVID death milestone. Because of the Trump administration's preparation they say, the U.S. led most of the world in vaccinations. Yeah, mister Biden had no plan to deal with a large numbers of vaccine holdouts other than to deride them. He missed his goal of getting 70% of adults vaccinated by July 4th, but proclaimed victory nonetheless. Biden blamed Republican governors and unvaccinated conservatives. Yet blacks and young people have also shown resistance reluctance to get vaccinated. They don't tend to be Republican, see Nicki Minaj and Kyrie
Suspect Released From Jail Days Before Parade Tragedy
"The Milwaukee prosecutor. The DA, what he had done was free. He had been freed on a $1000 bond. He has a record of incredible violence. He tried to run over. Was his girlfriend? Yes. Brooks had a long rap sheet, Wall Street Journal, and the Milwaukee county district attorney's office said he had been out on a $1000 bond. What is the bummed for those who participated in the January 6th events in the capital? There is no pond. We're living in an increasingly dictatorial country because of the left. The only reason you would not acknowledge that is you are afraid to. It's very hard to acknowledge at a certain point in life you've been wrong your whole life. In thinking that the Democratic Party was a force for good, or that The New York Times was a truth teller. Or that universities were positive educational experiences and gave wisdom. It's very hard. My heart breaks for such people. There's a book about such people. The God that failed. It's written by people who believed in communism in the 30s and 40s. When you believe in something your whole life and you then you realize, like this teacher, who wrote this piece that I will read to you. I so admired my shallow teachers and the teaching profession and the teachers union. And then I was awakened. Most of my fellow teachers are morons.

Inflation Crushes the Poor and Middle Class, Not the Wealthy
"The issue with inflation as I said is it crushes the middle class and the poor More than the wealthy And why is that Well think it through It's pretty common sense The wealthy have assets as a means to offset to offset the inflate you hedge against inflation Some of them have actual inflation based instruments like tips bonds treasury inflation protected securities They're protected against inflation You get a certain return plus inflation But it's not just that some of them are Bitcoin crypto gold real estate land holding securities holdings equity and they have this stuff knowing that the value of that the nominal value of that goes up with inflation There's a reason you're paying more for a home as a Wall Street Journal indicated today now than you were a year ago That's inflation too it's real The price is going up Now that think about it Who owns those assets Who has gold Crypto expensive baseball cards Comic books Whatever Bitcoin Ether Who has this stuff Is it the poor middle class Maybe the middle class has some of it but no rich people do Inflation doesn't hurt them as much as it hurts the poor in the middle class
Renewable Energy Can't Be Achieved by a Ban on Fossil Fuels
"Wrote a piece in The Wall Street Journal, which you should all be aware of. How destructive the green activists the fanatics of our day are to poor countries. This is by the president, Yoweri Museveni. President of Uganda, Africa can not sacrifice its future prosperity for western climate goals. The continent should balance its energy mix not rush straight toward renewables. Even though that will likely frustrate some of those gathering, at the global climate conference in Glasgow. I'll continue reading from it, but I want you to understand the issue it's very simple. The west got its prosperity thanks to fossil fuels. No fossil fuel, no energy, no west. Fossil fuels have been one of the greatest blessings in the history of mankind. What the selfish, rich white. That's really who it's ironic that I would use the term, but that's who it is. Selfish, rich, bored, that's incredibly important. That's who make up the environmentalist movement. Selfish, rich, white, bored, people, who need some meaning in their lives, and saving the world is as meaningful as it gets, isn't it? So if you destroy the western west's economy, and make impossible for poor countries to develop. What the hell? Their wealthy enough to withstand it. And I make them feel great to boot. So we're telling countries that now want to get wealthy like the west. You can't. We used fossil fuels. You can't. You and Uganda? You need wind turbines.
Rep. Nicole Malliotakis: The Infrastructure Bill Is 'Incredibly' Important for Aging Cities Like New York
"Right, let's listen to Nicole malli attack. This is the congresswoman from New York. Again, I've always liked her. So disappointed that she voted with 12 other Republicans in the House and rescued the Biden agenda as The Wall Street Journal editorial which I'm going to share with you points out. Listen to her comments to Bill hemmer and Dana perino this morning on Fox News. 19 Republican senators voted for it as well. But for those who did not, they just think this is a bad Bill. Why did it get your yes vote? Well, this bill, look, I read this bill, and it is covered to cover infrastructure. $350 billion is going to roads highways and bridges, which you would consider traditional infrastructure, and in the other 550 billion is for ports, airports, seaports, ferry systems, coastal resiliency projects, like the east or seawall that's so important to my district. Sewer systems, which is so incredibly important following Ida, the damage that took place in New York City, upgrading our subway signals to a communication based train control. We're still relying on pre World War II equipment in some subways. So for an aging city like New York City, this bill was incredibly important. And the reality is is that this is the type of investment that people actually pay taxes for those basic infrastructure needs that you expect from government, but have been neglected for decades. And as you reported earlier, I also believe that we significantly took away the leverage from the socialist squad. It is why AOC and the others voted against it because they knew that if the true infrastructure Bill passed, the spotlight would go onto their social spending bill that includes the IRS agents. It includes the Amnesty. It includes giveaways to those who are in the country illegally, the taxes, the vaccine mandates and penalties, all of that that we remain opposed to and we are going to fight tooth and nail with the moderate Democrats to

"Go ahead They elected winsome seers as lieutenant governor She will be the first African American woman to be elected statewide in Virginia history It's The Wall Street Journal Nice try But invoking the name of lieutenant governor elect winsome Sears doesn't prove my assertion wrong about the role of race in the Virginia governor's election Not in the least Look voting for someone black does not grant absolution from racism It's not because people voted for somebody who's black They voted for somebody despite her race That's the point Martin Luther King Not Derek bell Are you too stupid to understand He obsessed with your racist hate to get it People go to the polls white racist go to the polls and say I'm going to vote for a black person a pro I'm not a white racist Just listen to how pathetic And how irrational this clown
After Igor Danchenko Indictment, Look at the FBI and Democrats' Activity
"And now Durham has obtained an indictment of this guy eager Dan shanko Russian provided the information for the dossier He's charged with lying to the FBI but you know the real story here is the intersection between the Democrats the FBI investigation the phony claims that were made who knew what when and how all this was just a giant lie That's what we know That's what we know Kimberly strasser on The Wall Street Journal points out very very important point Never forget the original claim According to the FBI Democrats and the media mister Trump harbored secret and nefarious ties with Russia We knew that because his mother Jones explained that a 2016 article that became the reigning storyline Christopher Steele was a credible source with a proven record of providing reliable sensitive and important information He had come across troubling evidence of Trump's collusion He brought it to the U.S. law enforcement he brought it to the federales right And then it took a year a year for congressional investigators to reveal that dossier had in fact been commissioned by this opposition research firm known as fusion GPS We all know that right Fusion GPS working for the Democrat party working for Hillary Clinton's campaign And then they all started lying about it They all started lying
GOP Election Success Deals Blow to Democrats
"Let me do the rundown because I'm still in a great mood. Jenkins, Virginia win offers midterm road map for GOP warning for Democrats, opines, the headline of The Wall Street Journal this morning. Voters punish Democrats and lift amid left drip according to axios. A couple of great quotes in the story this morning. Clearly, the president's drop in favorability made it very difficult for the democratic nominee to stay above water. Democratic Jerry Conley told axios D.C. in my colleague selection night event in Tyson's quarter, Virginia. That's what happened. A senior aide to New Jersey Democrat told axios alania Trini, quote, it's insanely clear. The party must reorient not on center left or progressive goals, but on what gets real things done for family. You would think so. How bad was it? The New York Times has a headline story about a little tiny district in San Antonio. John luhan a 59 year old retired firefighter won the seat a blow for Democrats because Joe Biden carried it by double digit points, only a year ago. My favorite headline in the morning in The New York Times from Jeremy Peters and elisa Lerner Republicans pounce on schools as a wedge issued to unite the party as I put online. Headlines are not the fault of Jeremy. He's a fine reporter. I don't know Lisa. Headlines are driven to get quicks. Republicans haven't pounced on anything Republicans have been talking about schools in red and purple states for decades. Virginia is a blue state. And so the education issue is erupted in Virginia, proving that blue states can be turned red when parents see the indoctrination of their children going on. New York Democrats assess losses to Republicans, according to The New York Times, quote, this was a shellacking. Up and down the Empire State Republicans won election at the local level. Reeling from surprise losses, Democrats sound the alarm for 2022 according to Jonathan Martin and Alexander burns the two Bigfoot republic the democratic reporters reporters on Democrats. I think they're leftists. I think they're both Democrats, but they're not, they're just
Biden Administration Considering Payments for Families Separated Under Trump Policy
"Wall Street Journal exclusive. The Biden administration is in talks to pay illegal immigrants who were separated during the Trump administration around $450,000 in reparations. The Wall Street Journal article calls it compensation. In fact, the Biden administration is considering payments that could amount close to $1 million of family. This is as a result of lawsuits filed by the ACLU at least in one of the lawsuits. They've identified about 5500 children separated at the border over the course of the Trump administration. I don't think they're paying the kids who were separated during the Obama administration, but there were plenty too. This is just an anti Trump measure. If reparations for black Americans infuriated you, reparations for illegal immigrants has got to be off the charts. How about black Americans? How do you feel about illegal immigrants getting half a $1 million a person? Well, that's what the Biden administration is in talks
U.S. In Talks to Pay Hundreds of Millions to Families Separated at Border
"You know the expression the wheels are coming off the train. The wheels are coming off. Well, for the Democrats, I'd say like three of the four wheels are off. It's still wobbling on the road. They're still in the lane. But just barely. It's, I mean, it's unbelievable. Biggest story of the day of the week. Of the month of the year. Is The Wall Street Journal exclusive that the Biden administration is in talks to offer illegals around 450,000 per person in compensation. This is to families separated at the border, the U.S. Department of Justice Homeland Security and Health and Human Services are considering payments that it could amount to close to shit down $1 million per family. The fact they're even considering this is beyond satire. We are now at a stage of Democrat lead lunacy that we've never
Biden May Pay Upwards to $1M per Immigrant Family Separated at Border
"Wall Street Journal U.S. and talks to pay hundreds of millions of dollars to family separated at the border The Biden administration is in talks to offer immigrant families that were separated during the Trump administration Around $450,000 a person in compensation according to people familiar with the matter As several agencies worked to resolve lawsuits filed on behalf of parents and children who say the government subjected them to lasting psychological trauma Now this is the American criminal liberties union These lawsuits were brought the reason children were separated from adults is because obviously and we talked about it at the time It is impossible to know if those are really the parents or if they're sexual predators Or if these children are being sold into the sex trade and so forth and so you have to separate them for a period of time and they weren't huge numbers I mean the Trump administration did everything they could to resolve this as quickly as possible as opposed to the Biden administration that keeps inviting and enticing people to come here by the millions Department of Justice Homeland Security and Health and Human Services are considering payments that could amount to ready for this Close to $1 million of family

"When it welcome to the show doctor Steven cue doctor thanks for joining us We appreciate it Oh it's great to be here Dan Thank you for having me Sure So doctor I watched your interview with rapt attention on Martha maccallum you apparently have some experience with the Wuhan lab have written about it I read you're up and The Wall Street Journal And there were a couple of things you had said in the interview one of them you had mentioned is that there was some evidence of either fragments and correct me if I'm wrong or sequences of other viruses in one of these labs and one of them was a virus called nipah which when I looked it up I was pretty frightened I mean I don't do you know fear porn like some other outlets I like honestly in science but that sounds kind of worrisome to me Why would this Wuhan lab have a deadly virus like that and why would they be manipulating it and could that affect us here Yes unfortunately everything you said is correct So the Wuhan institute of virology not coronaviruses So yes what we found was that in December 2019 samples from patients got sent from a hospital in Wuhan to the Wuhan institute of virology and put on a machine to sequence what viruses the patients had These machines can get contaminated however with background work that's going on in the laboratory We identify that the nipah virus is being manipulated through a process called synthetic biology in the laboratory right now This is where SARS CoV-2 was probably two years in 2018 2019 So this is very serious Because as you know this virus is 80 to 90% lethal as opposed to the 1% plus or minus that SARS CoV-2 is So we really need to stop this activity now and get Congress and whatever group is can get behind us to

They seem to be very aware of what they consider. The new york times woke take on politics in and sort of balancing the record. A lot of reporters complained that you know they. They felt almost the need to respond to the way the new york times was covering the story. They weren't discovering it. They were looking at the way. The new york times is covering it and then trying to counterbalance that that's been a tendency to a certain extent this whole thing about not wanting to seem woke. Which is there with the way they think about it. Flies in the face of this other tension. They have which is That you know that they're not covering race at all And that in fact there is a lot of discontent that you report on from people on the staff who who do think this. There was enormous miss here in terms of covering race in the country. Right yeah i mean i just really. I really got the impression that there's a big you know the core of the wall street journal's readership. Is you know elderly white men and they just really don't want to. They don't really don't want to be labeled woke and they really don't want it anger that core readership so anything that might sort of upset them or feed into this culture war or allow people to you know You know they're just going out of their way to not upset them. So you know one of the reporters said we can write about hispanics buying homes but we can't write about you know. White people refusing to sell hispanic people homes in their neighborhoods. You know any anything that touches. Some of these cultural third rails. They're they're very careful about and standards gets involved and I don't know you know one of the examples That i didn't make it into the story But that i know that pissed off. A lot of people in the washington bureau was I mean this isn't necessarily race but In in june when You know when trump went over to saint.

"Welcome to the right home for friday. September seventeenth twenty twenty one. I'm brian mccullough. Today a deep dive. Summary of the rolling facebook controversies this week from the ongoing wall street journal reporting apple and google removing app from russian opposition after their employees. Were threatened in that country and of course the weekend long read suggestions this time with extra. Nfc goodness here's what you missed today in the world of tech. I've mentioned already this week. That facebook has had a hell of a week with the wall street journal. Dropping a bombshell story about them. Seemingly every day often using internal facebook documents for example yesterday the headlines were about how internal docs allegedly revealed facebook's weak response after staff flagged human traffickers and drug cartels using its platforms for recruitment in developing countries quote employees flagged that human traffickers in the middle east had used the site to lure women into abusive employment situations in which they were treated like. Slaves are forced to perform sex work. They warned that armed groups in ethiopia. Use the site to incite violence against ethnic minorities. They sent alerts to their bosses on organ selling pornography and government action against political dissent. According to the documents. Facebook removes some pages though many more operate openly. According to the documents in some countries where facebook operates it has few or no people who speak the dialects needed to identify dangerous or criminal uses of the platform. The documents show when problems have surfaced publicly. facebook has said it addressed them by taking down offending post. But it hasn't fixed the systems that allowed defenders to repeat the bad behavior instead priority is given to retaining users helping business partners and at times placating authoritarian governments whose support facebook sometimes needs to operate within their borders. The documents show facebook treats hermit developing countries as simply the cost of doing business and quote in those places said. Brian bolland a former facebook. Vice president who oversaw partnerships with internet providers in africa and asia before resigning at the end of last year. Facebook has focused its safety efforts on wealthier markets with powerful governments and media institutions. He said even as it has turned to poor countries for user growth and quote and now this morning the headline is that internal documents show. How anti vacs activists flooded vaccine content on facebook with negative comments despite mark zuckerberg pushed to promote cove in nineteen vaccines. You might remember how zuckerberg and facebook at the beginning of the year. Made a big show of saying how they were going to promote vaccine outreach. But according to the journal quote in the weeks before mr zuckerberg made his announcement another memo said initial testing concluded that roughly forty one percent of comments on english. Language vaccine related posts wrist discouraging. Vaccinations users were seeing comments. On vaccine related post seven hundred seventy five million times a day the memo said and facebook researchers were the large proportion of negative comments could influence perceptions of the vaccine safety even authoritative sources of vaccine information. We're becoming quote cesspool of anti vaccine comments. The authors wrote. That's a huge problem and we need to fix it. They said facebook's goal of protecting the roll out of the cupboard vaccines described in one memo as a quote top company priority end quote was a demonstration of mr zuckerberg faith at his creation is a force for social good in the world but the effort ended up demonstrating the gulf between his aspirations and the practical reality of the world's largest social platform where the company's aims can bring it into conflict with its own users. Despite mr zuckerberg's effort a cadre of anti vaccine activists flooded the network with what facebook calls quote barrier vaccination and quote content. The memo show they use facebook's own tools to so doubt about the severity of the pandemic threat and the safety of authorities main weapon to combat it and quote if new scandalous headlines in the journal every day was not enough head of instagram adam. Massery went on our friend. Peter kafka's podcast yesterday to push back on those earlier wall street journal scoops. That suggested that instagram was bad for teenage girls. And well this happened quoting cnbc. Adam massery the head of facebook. Instagram service came under a flurry of criticism thursday. After comparing the value of social networks to society to that of cars quote we know that more people die than would otherwise because of car accidents but by and large cards create way more value in the world than they destroy. Massery said wednesday on the recode media. Podcast and i think social media is similar and quote. Missouri's comparison of instagram. Two cars came after podcast host. Peter kafka asked the executive if the service should be pulled a restricted. If there's a chance it could really harm people in the same way that say cigarettes can harm people quote absolutely not and i really don't agree with the comparison to drugs or cigarettes which have very limited if any upsides massery said anything that is going to be used at scale is going to have positive and negative outcomes. Cars have positive and negative outcomes and quote. Numerous twitter users criticized massery for the comparison and pointed out that unlike social media. The automobile industry is heavily. Regulated among those critics was former facebook executive. Brian bowen quote. We have regulations and the national highway traffic safety administration for cars. Maybe adam azeri should read unsafe at any speed. Bullen tweeted kafka asked about the regulation surrounding cars which massery responded he does believe that some social media regulation is needed quote. We think you have to be careful. Because regulation can cause more problems. Misteri set on the podcast. But i do think we are a big enough industry that it's important and we need to evolve it forward and quote massery went on the defensive on twitter after the wave of criticism calling the car analogy quote less than perfect but saying that facebook executive stand by the belief that social media connecting people does more harm than bad quote headline culture. Which yes i know. Social media has contributed to is exhausting. Massery said among his series of tweets thursday morning and quote Yes the endless series of facebook. Controversies can be exhausting. Take it from someone who has to cover. These controversies every day. And i've only been doing it for a little under four years. But at the same time i kind of think that that's the point and that's why i'm devoting half the show today to this because again there have been new stories and new allegations every single day this week. Stop for a second and ask yourself why. That is i mean. Facebook has had controversies from the day it was created. So why is this all coming out now. Well as everyone in tech has been whispering about this week it is clear that the calls are coming from inside the facebook house itself. Clearly someone either. Formerly or currently at facebook is leaking this stuff. So is there a larger rebellion going on inside facebook than we know about. Let me quote this tweet thread from former facebook executive alex thomas quote. The facebook files reporting is incredible necessary and damning and misleading. The public about. It is inexcusable. But this stuff must exist on other platforms to right. Why are they less leaky. Will this disincentivize this kind of research in the future. How do we stop that. I think the big picture is that several mid level vp's and directors invested and built big quantitative social science teams on the belief that knowing what was wrong with lead to positive change those teams have run into the power of the growth and unified policy. Teams turns out. The knowledge isn't helpful. When the top execs haven't changed the way products are measured and employees are compensated so the only recourse for those teams to affect. Change is leaking to the wall street journal. I'm sure other products have the same impact some problems but they are either too small twitter and snap to build these big expensive teams that don't drive revenue or have a strategy of not looking youtube and quote in other words if you're a talented smart perhaps idealistic person who has gone to work for facebook for the last five years. At least you knew that working at facebook would be. Shall we say controversial. Some folks would look at you sideways if you mentioned where you worked but maybe you could justify it all to yourself by saying it's okay 'cause we can change things i by being here. We'll change things. Social media is new. We just haven't perfected it yet..

And keep when somebody calls to disconnect, and they convince you to stay, and so employees will apparently why do you offer you things to stay that aren't real? They will tell you.

For an answer that they will drop your call. So you won't be able to disconnect. The problem is reported by many insiders at AT and T that they are under this intense pressure AT and T says well, there may be a few people doing that. But we're not gonna let anybody do that to you. And that's not really going to be a problem. Well. What I want you to know is that when you were dumping pay-tv from any source because you're going to streaming or cutting the cord, whatever you wanna call it. You want an Email confirming? That you have in fact properly cancelled if they tell you they don't do that you want to tell them they're on a recorded line. And you record them saying that you in fact are disconnected as such and such date. Should you have to do all this? Why is it you can sign up online? But you have to talk to a human who will do everything they can to not let you quit a service because companies lack that moral and ethical compass and are trying to keep customers. So if you're going to let people sign up online, you should cancel online periods. Simple. But you want proof if they if they offer you something good enough that you think? Well, okay. We'll stay another year. You need something in writing confirming that. Because remember if employees are under so much pressure.

"I is a is a pretty good leading us down. You'll pay will is hard paywall right now. It's random. I mean, it's it's like we we have maybe not random that's the technical term. But. Twenty percents about like fifteen percent of the content is is buying the pay wall. And it's determined with an algorithm, which is me determining which which stories is going to be behind the pay wall. But then there's exclusive content that we have research, and it's different from our core content. But we're deciding whether to move to just a cleaner more like a metered model of saying, we're not gonna have propensity engine unless you wanna loan it to a so in lieu of that just moving to a cleaner model of saying, okay? You can get I don't know where the break point is four stories five stories a month, but beyond that year need to pay us because it like anyone we find is you've got a you've got a not a small, but like, you know, about like seventeen eighteen percent of your. It's the old eighty twenty rule like, you know, like twenty percent of your audience is like not consuming like three or four pages. But like puns. And you get a bunch of people who come in through side doors that, you know, consume a few few stories among. Yeah. Listen. I mean, the metoo muddle by his is well, the New York Times of made it what I'm so there's value in it. But they've been tightening. I mean, it seems like more of the it seems like more people move towards a tighter paywall as they go on. I mean, this is funny because he looked back and it was that. Off three many of us have copied and pasted Wall Street Journal headlines in the past generally say funny because actually part of that pay will project was literally looking at you know, where all the side door access points the being used, and and I click Frei was, you know, the the big battle that you guess fought it was in. That was a big reason why explain that for people who don't know free. So free was a Google policy and that meant the when people came through Google to publish his website. The first click, and therefore the first story would be would be affectively free. And we disa- testing around that to see what what would happen if if it wasn't and people a new flexible, and that's kind of was point that we're building a pay will that was designed to be flexible based on. On the user say a one-size-fits-all ruled was not going to work for flexible payroll, and we still some pretty pretty good upside from from that and say, that's why we while we put out a first lake free and oversee since then give 'em launched flexible sampling, which is much more. I guess in line with much more in line with a paywall is today. Right. Which is having the the ability to be flexible in terms of experience that you receive right on just to stay on that like what role? Do you see the platforms playing in your subscription strategy? That they I mean, everyone from Google to Facebook to to to apple news. Yeah. I mean, what wide ranging I I guess my, you know, I sell great journalism every day. Right. And I think the first thing is to an understanding of how valuable, you know, generals amaze. And I think that, you know, Google I'm Facebook right through that that news initiatives of definitely come round to the idea. The there is value in journalism, and the journalism should be should be paid for which I think is a great great star. I think the the again, there is no blueprint. There isn't I book that says this is how you should use the platforms in your in your subscription business. But you know, we we use them for different reasons. I mean, Facebook's Facebook's platform full and distributing content to non to know members is also could. Platform to bring our existing members back to the Wall Street, Geno..

"I will you come. We'll we'll give you a school and that school will determine what your experience will be and what kind of things go into that propensity score. What what what impacts it? Yes, broadly, speaking, this is about sixty five variables are in the metal through all of them. You'll be the night. But I mean, it's broadly speaking this fast party in third party, data the first party data. Not surprisingly, the most powerful, you know, you'll visitation count of plays plays a big role, and the device type that you're on you know, you on desktop or your mobile are you on I s or you on Android? They player they play a role the types of content that you consume can. Can play a role. And then when you start thinking about third party signals, you know, where you live, right? So we'll see we can we invite your location, and actually where you live has a huge bearing on whether you're going to subscribe on because then you can infer educational attainment. I'm you can infer household income, etc. Etc. And actually areas what the densely populated have a we'll score highly. So there's not there's not one signal that because if it was just one signal, then you wouldn't need a propensity model that one signal right? So it is a broad range. And they're not a not all of those signals going to be relevant for everyone, which is the suppose the complex nature of the model is the it is designed to be a individual skull people in individual. So why why does this model work best for the journal versus say a meter model? A lot. People now are are new to the to the subscriptions, and they're going with some version of a meter because the hard paywall was thought to be too blunt and the meter is you know, it's like the in between choice. Yeah. I'm always the metoo still assumes that everybody needs the same amount of exposure to that content still setting a rule based on the content and not necessarily on the on the customer. Right. So basically, this is just a lot more flexible and targeted and sort of more nuance to the user right in well confusing as far as like to the user like, I'm not sure what I get you know, as a non subscriber. And what I don't get because the product is different based on who I am. And who who someone else's or what device I'm on? And I mean the lottery the the products the same the experience. Inexperienced will. Yeah. I'm. And listen, we of course, when we subscription I so that's like it's like, well, this is our business. I don't think it will be a surprise to people to run into a paywall. The Wall Street Journal Reich is running around for a while. And actually the experience the customer experience present Phil when he different to what it was right? Because when you came to the Street Journal, though, still some content Peyton some content. You know, free an away doing now is being more selective with with how. And where we do that sampling. Do you find an I know they're it depends. There's there's so many signals, but it would seem to me that someone has to hit the the the wall a certain number of times generally before they're like, okay. Here's my credit card. Got me a frequency frequency is..

"On subscriptions before everyone made this pivot to paid was. Well, the Wall Street Journal is the outlier because it's other people's money as like business class airfare, a lot of people are willing to to pay extra for that. Yeah. It's a great question. We that may be where we were. But we've I think as we've grown. I'm we've we've set any grow into a. I guess a mole be to see rather than to see for P, and that's really been the growth in the core. The core business is is broadened broadening our reach broadening our appeal to different audiences. I mean, they me wrong. The the corporate credit card of these plays a role and retention race. You know, always good with coporate credit cards, but other we have a problem because so many people change jobs in the media and marketing history so quickly that there they take with them their their corporate card. So I don't know if you have any ideas on that one. Yeah. I'm. Yeah. I would I maybe maybe think about encouraging them to sign up without without that work Email that Pasolini you've got away to exactly in them. Okay. So explain the setup of of of your group particular. Yes, the cool membership team again, this this this probably right or wrong answer. But our starting point was the customer, broadly speaking, we think about the subscriptions customer journey as a bowtie say you've got the discover phase, you got the convert phase, and you've got engaged, retain, and this basically within my team the seven different functions within the team and each function, basically take part of that subscription life cycle. And so each point of the scripture in life cycle, there is a team of people worrying about what they need to do to move the the subscriber or the member in our case down the down the funnel to become a member or to engage retain them as they become as they become members. And this involves the customer journey and stuff. I I'm now well aware of this because of our own meme. Ship program. Our team is always talking about customer journeys. Yeah. I mean, I've had a funnels of had bow ties this lots of or Doges general journeys, lots of ways to think about it. But I think if you start with the customer, then then, you know, pretty good place to stop because you are. You'll following their their journey that journey with you. Yeah. So let's talk about the each of the phases discovery..

"Because obviously the Wall Street Journal has had subscriptions for quite a long time. And now with everyone going into subscriptions, you know, people come at it from different from different areas. Yeah. Yeah. The generals how to pay since ninety seven. I I was at school in ninety seven. But yes, started I didn't start it. And I can't take the credit for it. But I I started I'm actually originally from from the UK so across the Atlantic to get to the journal, but was at sister publication say the times of London, I'm and then the sun sun newspaper, always been a Marketa. I'm anne. Now, marketing and sales is my is my thing. Okay. So explain the makeup of the Wall Street Journal subscriptions group is it a group because it's it's different from circulation, and I'm sure every single every single company has a different setup. And it really depends on a lot of things. But particularly, you know, where they come from when when he come from a newspaper, you're gonna have you're gonna have a different setup because you have a circulation department, but explain how it set up at the journal. Yeah, I think the structure really matters is is very my first for the first point. And for us. We we we structured around the customer. So broadly speaking, we kind of said, this this three different types of customer that we want to grow membership for student membership business. I'm so the jam running the student membership business a cool membership business, which is what I run, and then also all professional business, which is Wall Street. Jen. Uh-huh. Pro and C suite verticals, if you think about almost the price of subscription or or Arpey as you come and go up Jane, the top of the pyramid is a high stop customers. And then students is all kind of entry entry method into the general. Okay. And so you're running the core. The people taking out and their credit card companies credit card and pane cracked. Yeah. How much of the business is corporate credit cards because I can always remember the knock.

Now, the plans to repeat these catastrophic mistakes like creating a new liquidity regimen that is bound to full some investors into thinking. There are no liquidity risk mutual funds. The SEC one provided general guidelines on liquidity issues and its new proposed rules could be destructive.
