Why Pioneering Journalist Maria Hinojosa Put Herself in the Story
"Maria I loved the Book A. So, good I told you. I was texting with you I devoured it and I want to jump in in the middle. You tell a story about writing a television script for Walter Cronkite what was the assignment? It's a juicy story. So I love 'cause nobody's asked me about this one yet short story is that I am the first Latina hired NPR. And then very quickly I'm like. This feels weird and I go and work for a Latino public radio in Spanish and San Diego and I experienced. Deep my cheese more there, and so I end up working kind of miraculously back in New York at CBS News in the Radio Department. And, I was doing fill in work the summer, and then I was asked to stay on through the end of December to produce a segment from Walter cronkite they asked me to write his end of the year commentary. And so. I was terribly nervous as a Latina journalism in the mainstream and being the first I was terrified most of the time. I write this piece and I go in I, show it to my boss Norman and Norman Light Me Norman hired me. But he saw this piece he said, Walter Cronkite is not going to read this and I was like no, he's like because it sounds like you wrote it. And I can't remember if he said and you're a little bit of an angry Latina I, don't think we talked in that way but it was almost like as he didn't have to say it he was like because it sounds like you wrote. and. I said well. Let's take it down to the FISHBOWL and have one of the evening news writer writers, read it and see what they think. Something just said. Stand up for yourself. You really hard. You actually worked on this you talk to other journalists. This shit is good. and. You're angry in this piece because every American should be angry at what is happening in the United States of America in the year nineteen, eighty seven. and. So I said, let's onto the fishbowl the people who edit the evening news with Dan Rather. We walk toward the writers who did not know me and he's again this is good. Yeah he'll read it. Yeah change this one word. and My boss had to eat his words eat pro as it were and I was like damn and so the point of the story is that as journalists of color as journalists conscience. When we are the first or one of the few in many newsrooms. We have to battle for ourselves. The way we see the world as journalists is as valid as Walter cronkite sway of seeing the world or Katie couric or Dan Rather we're journalists just like them. There are so many pivot points on your journey from intern to staff producer to on air from Spanish English. Is there one moment that stands out to you as the moment where your career to turn and where you really started to set out on your journey as a journalist? Well, look to decide basically that you're going to walk away from a steady Gig because you want to become a correspondent, you want to try to become on air that was pretty risky move and I feel like I did that in one of those moments where I was like you just have to do this. Like there are no Latinas. There are no Latina voices out there. And you have done radio, you have a voice, you know how to use it Noah. So that was a turning point. I think when CNN recruited me, that was another moment. It was very scary because I had never done television much less live television. But to answer your question, I feel like it really like. Like really came to fruition once I moved into doing now on PBS, which was long form investigative close to sixty minutes in terms of its style and production and deep investigative, and that led me to then doing documentaries and led to the front line which happened at the same time that I created my own company football media and I just WANNA shout out. The book. News for all the people which is was written by Juan Gonzalez and Joe Tories once I read that book I was like, okay. All of this suffering of being a journalist, a Latina you know woman of Color Immigrant. All of this is there is a reason why and it is because you have a responsibility to be part of this long arc. Of Responsible Journalism in the United States. You right I had heard rumblings at NPR some folks that I got too close to stories. I know all about you and your agenda one of my editors a nice middle aged white guy said to me agenda I said, what are you talking about? Maria come on you and you're Latino agenda. How did you respond in that moment? I said so does that mean that you've got a white guys agenda and he was like, no, it's not the same thing and I was like the same thing I'm able to tell you those moments because they were few and far between when I was just like ski is. Key you know like the same in Mexico is style plateau. SAMANCOR will plateau no one mass when I would just like suddenly rip something out and just be like that. But a lot of the times as you know, you're mostly just like dodging dodging you're doing a we've you're doing another we've and then sometimes you're just like a skin nope Wilma's I'm GonNa answer back. I hope that a lot of journalists read this book journalists because. You do have to be incredibly strong willed, and I would hope that they understand that this is not a job it is in fact, a mission that we're lucky enough to love. We need them.
Media, power, and political communication
"Let's talk about the media yeah the media is a powerful Trojan horse seven mereka if it's not a and I mean they have attacked president trump relentlessly yeah and the problem we have is we have fox okay yeah now fox is okay but Rupert Murdoch is ninety years old right and his two sons are liberals okay we have newsmax rage has been growing and that's a good thing yeah we have one America right which is a good thing but these are national programs they don't get into Vince's crab house they don't get in the fells point being close they don't get into those things go and they don't get into helping our people who need help to fight against the beast and as you pointed out the Baltimore sun doesn't report on any of these issues involving her son is one of them yeah right exactly the Baltimore sun is part of the super shadow government yeah they protect them yeah people say that the media has fallen in the tank for the left they fell in the tank for the Obama no the media never found the check for anybody the media are leaders in this offensive they are legally are part of the natural America they were and and they were targeted specifically for that purpose because of the vast influence they have they were targeted for subversion and infiltration by the Soviet Union in the nineteen thirties and we could go on for hours about how that happened and who infiltrated but just for example one person remember Edward R. Murrow of CBS Edward R. Murrow is one of the people primarily responsible for bringing communist it's two Columbia teachers college to begin inserting all of these destructive America narratives into our universities he was responsible for bringing those people over and he worked with a guy named Laurence Duggan whose son was an actual Soviet agent and he was friends with his son and he became a news anchor for CBS that's just one example there are many many trusted a man in America yeah right right he he gave the Vietnam War at eight a story that was a hundred and eighty degrees from what the truth was riled tell your doctor about with Walter Cronkite yeah that young people don't know who has what we member we only had three major networks in this country now I can tell you let me say some about yeah because the networks are required by FCC regulation as part of their contract to provide unbiased news nobody has ever called him that if I were in a position to do so I would pull their FCC licenses tomorrow and tell them that they better straighten out their newsrooms and start reporting what's going on because they should be challenged in the courts right absolutely be challenged because they have been really but they have such power and such influence and Americans have to get a constitutional public there operates through elections has to be given the facts at what's happened instead is they've been given the left narrative for sixty eighty years in World War two The New York Times was engaged in treason it was exposing things mark Levin's book yeah I mean it's just stunning it's stunning when CNN first started Ted Turner used to go on a show and he would bring some five Soviet KGB agents on the show with him had a first among them was Georgy Arbatov who is the head of member for US and Canada old KGB agent they would talk down president Reagan they would just sit there and terror attacks president right that was C. N. N. the communist news
Floyd family attorney says charge against officer should be upgraded to first-degree murder
"Well and I've been talking for days now about the the tragedy of the death of George Floyd at the knee of a police officer who held him down for eight minutes shot by the neck and he eventually lost his life and that man has now been charged with third degree murder second degree voluntary met involuntary manslaughter people are looking for more even possibly first degree murder I was listening to the the Florida attorney today talking on national television and discussing a number of things concerning the case and how they believe there may be some well premeditated aspects of this case but the reason I'm bringing it up on the sports show we'll get to that in a moment I have Greg dial is who is on the disk gets to the pitch for news line who happens to be an attorney at law and I I think it's very important that we don't lose sight of the story in Pittsburgh last night tragically we felt some of that violence that continues to spread from coast to coast am tomorrow night in my program I'll be talking in pretty much opening the phone lines between eight and ten and giving you a chance to voice your opinion and we all will on KDKA radio over the next couple of days but the thing that I really took away without watching Margaret o'brien talked to the mayor of Atlanta of course as I mentioned talk to the attorney for the Floyd family talking to other people like Melvin Carter the mayor of J. Paul Minneapolis if this is a story that is polarize our nation especially in the midst of this pandemic but when you think of calling Capranica those are people of color in sports and what they have done to stand up for the black race and minorities many NBA players were actually involved in these protests some of them returned to Atlanta where they grew up to to speak their mind and be a part of a peaceful protest that obviously turn very the ugly with a lot of violence there's been discussion of anarchist a white supremacist if you will who have rolled into various towns to ignite these fires literally and these horrible Ryan said for the most part many people but we're going to be peaceful protest so Greg the reason I want to talk to you as far as athletes this is nothing new I've seen Jim Brown and many others Kareem Abdul Jabbar Mohammed Ali obviously spent most of his life fighting for civil rights this is just such a very bad time in our country's history my question to you is when you think about what happened to Mr Floyd and there are many great law enforcement officers out there but one thing is for sure when you're dealing with many athletes many of them of the black race this is a concern into something has been a part of the sports world is a part of all of our lives and I think that we owe at least a segment or two because of your legal background and your sports background to talk about it and again no one ever thought that this would be the story that would kind of replace this pandemic even in the midst of the pandemic and it's a shame that it's come down to this but there's no way that you go anywhere right now in this region or any television station running radio station or a newspaper you pick up that this is not the story good morning good morning robin unfortunately it's really not a good morning I I wish there were different things to talk about generally enough for you guys you know I usually come in with some happy new year for you in the mornings but it it just feels like there's something gone wrong that the world is off its axis or something but but there's just seems to be more more bad news each and every day but we'll get through this we we are hearty people and we'll figure it out and and we actually you man elements need to be able to to figure out ways to pass these things out but it's very difficult and it's hard for for me a white man to to be able to express a what's the the people of all colors are experiencing in our country right now because I I'm not listed but but I do have your clients and friends said no we can't have a conversation about and try to figure out ways whereas the people that we can go forward and and you know put all these differences a lady somehow some way but but boy it's really just off for a sound doesn't seem like there's any kind of logical or reasonable way to proceed because the patch things up you know as I was watching the face the nation program I must tell you I really was torn whether or not I should bring it up again after spending the majority of the last couple of days talking about it and will over the next couple of days despite us having a June second primary it will be the topic of conversation during the open talk portion of my programs right through Wednesday night in some of the folks that I have scheduled for political purposes are perfect because a lot of folks are tying the political aspect as far as from local government to state government a national government it's all leading up to this June second primary so the timing is there but I just wish it was something else that I was discussing but I said to myself you know listen I've always been one to try to take the high road and have a peaceful outlook and not really try to stir the pot but this is something there's really struck me personally because of watching that video and obviously having many people in law enforcement of color and yes of course many of them are dear friends I understand that they too are frustrated because of what happened in Minnesota with this police officer all I can say is this growing up even in the turbulent civil rights era of the sixties the one thing that always brought people together especially on the playground in the neighborhood was sports and then I saw some of my sports heroes like Muhammad Ali my all time favorite also Jim Brown in there another scream of dole Jabbar who always stood up and spoke out but I must tell you it's just so sad to see something that is happening of this nature in twenty twenty that I experienced during the height of the civil rights watching the nightly news with Walter Cronkite seeing the black and white film footage of the fire hoses turned on young black teenagers attack dogs police dogs if you will that were put into that mode because that was the command they were given it's just hard to believe that we have evolved so many decades later we're sports's evolve where in the world now without sports we lost a hundred thousand people in this country and counting when it comes to the pandemic and this is on the front page and no matter how you look at it is just flat out sad to think we have not come that very far since Martin Luther king walked this earth and lost his life because of his fight for civil rights it almost makes you feel like robbery we haven't come anywhere you know we we're we're right back to where we started in the sixties in it is so sad to to have to be in a situation where where in hello to our address like that the only way they can can express those the end it is these were mostly protests that were peaceful in and well deserved and then they turn crazy because of outside sources apparently and no one knows for sure but it seems that that especially in Pittsburgh this was not something that was driven by the peaceful protests that started out in that that's bigger shame of it all in and I'm hoping that there is some way to find these people that came in there that that tried to incite the violence to to get to a point where we can catch them and get them off the street there's no place in our world you know Greg and I don't know if it's because when we were raised in one of the things that I've been stressing to my audience and I have been through it all I've been through rose Jonny Gammage obviously going back to the nineties up with Rodney king I have been on the radio talking about all of these things and how tragic they are and hoping that they would stop just like the school shootings that I go back to nineteen ninety nine covering the Columbine case the thing that I have come to believe it is all about what you can do teaching your children about how this is not how you act do not treat people of a different color race nationality religious belief other than how you want to be treated that's the way you and I were both raised in I'm not looking for us to get a gold star or a Pat on the back but you have to know is I know the way we grew up weather was on the basketball court or the classroom or just spending it time at home eating something that our parents prepare force and you looked across the table many times that person was black and I never looked at it any other way than just that a friend of mine enjoying a moment whether it be in school in that classroom or on that basketball court or on that of field of athletics and I think we become so isolated not just because of this pandemic but the world that we live in today that people have lost sight as far as what they need to do and how they should be raising their children and more importantly something that I've always thought was healthy a healthy mix of people from all walks of life we we need to get back to that if we want to survive this and move forward and be a healthier nation not so much for you and I but for your daughters and my children and generations to come yeah I can't agree with you more there has to be a way to figure this out there investors are seemingly every time an issue or an engine that comes up like this we often dialogue began everybody just kind of goes back to their quarters in as if it were a boxing ring what okay yeah we had these conversations but nothing gets accomplished you're nothing gets fixed and then you have another incident where were some law enforcement in the Milan in an attack on law enforcement you know they they're there for the better part of on everyone and probably more than ninety nine point nine percent all law enforcement officers in doing the right thing but the house in in increments and issue like this that seemingly are happening in the weekly Robinson it is these issues come up or that they go along if someone acts in a way

The Biggest Tech Flops of the Past Decade
"Here's the verges article. The eighty four biggest flops fails and dead dreams of the decade. INTECH think the biggest disappointment in tech doc really is Big Tech and the disappointment of you know twitter and facebook not really living living up to the promise the Internet in general not living up to the promise it offered at the beginning of the decade. We could safely say or reasonably say. Oh it's going to bring thus all together it's going to be the ultimate democratizing medium. Everybody will have a voice will be heard from and that turned. Got To be the big problem. Because everybody's being heard from the Internet's being used to Polarize us to some some degree right. Sometimes by outside forces I mean you can it be. Don't facebook just clobbered a bunch of accounts twitter to from you you know outside groups from China and Russia trying to influence our our internal discussions in the United States but also sometimes from inside forces you know out in a way. This is exactly what we thought would happen. That there are many different voices in the United States and some uh many of them are jarring to many of the other people. Right it's You didn't know your neighbors thought these crazy things right and And who's to say who's right or wrong. I mean I don't WanNa make a value judgment. You know the people right who agree with me. Obviously we all say I think if that's if you're going to pick a disappointment maybe this isn't such a disappointment. Maybe the Internet is a disappointment in one regard. Another regard. We're we are learning what our neighbors think it's not it's not a it's not the unified sought. We saw it. It was only because we lived in a bubble we. You know before the free flow of information I I would argue. There's this there's this whole notion Called the filter bubble got an ally pariser even wrote a book called the filter bubble and his premise. was that the Internet fosters kind of these bubbles of thought where you just read stuff that you agree with. I think it's kind of the opposite. I think that's what it was before the Internet before the Internet you made the magazines and newspapers. TV channels and and they kind of fostered a uniformity of sought. And there are some moments is very famous moment when Walter cronkite. The most trusted voice in news in But wins oops probably Late sixties now. I Guess Johnson was still president so it was So it must have been sixty seven or sixty six Walter cronkite finally on the CBS. Evening News said we can't win the war in Vietnam and the nation pivoted people. When Walter said it everybody in fact Lyndon Johnson very famously said well we've lost now off if we if we've lost Walter? We've lost everybody but that those are those are remarkable moments because they're so few so far between are they. At least they were in those days there was a uniformity of thought. And if Walter said something well the nation kind of pretty much went along now now. We're very fractious. Because every voice is heard he's had a bad thing well it's certainly not comfortable in the way that nineteen fifties America America was. It was very comfortable right. We all kind of well thought we thought we thought the same thing we didn't know it was all the stuff on the rocks. It was going on. It's never stopped going on. It's always go there. And now thanks the Internet's not under the rocks anymore. It's out there in the open. I suspect that's a good thing in the long run. There's no mysteries and secrets. And we don't have the illusion that we all agree on everything and you know what I th. I predict. I'm getting optimistic here. A hope you'll forgive. Let me but I keep seeing these stories the biggest flops. The end of the decade is just disappointing with the Internet. I I I held up this magazine and holding up a magazine radio silly. I hold this magazine up from the New York Times last month. That said so. The Internet didn't turn out the way we hoped that was that was the cover and then The whole supplement this week the flops and failures of the twenty tens. Maybe it isn't such a flop. Maybe in time we'll adjust and we'll understand yes. There are many kinds. There's your neighbors think differently than you do. Maybe be Certainly people in your state your county your city and certainly in the country they all have. There's many varying opinions of. Maybe we'll find a way to embrace that. It's just that we used to. We have this illusion that we all kind of agreed on stuff not anymore. They'll we'll have that illusion anymore. Do

"Never seen. Walter Cronkite that emotional Christopher Fulton along with his wife. Michelle have written a book called the inheritance. He was born in one thousand nine hundred sixty five just outside Washington. DC family, rich and military history. He decided to change his career and go into commercial construction and Canada. And of course, that's when some problems began thereafter, he was extradited and sent to a US federal prison for his possession of physical evidence in the JFK's assassination. Christopher Fulton here on coast to coast. Christopher welcome to the program. Good evening, George. Thanks for inviting me on my gosh. What work you have done here? Now, this is a very different work different different book than most of them that I've read tell us a little bit about what had happened to you specifically and how you came to get some of this evidence. Well, I guess I should start. The the explanation to the TV listeners that the after the assassination took place Robert Kennedy was placed an extremely difficult position. And of course, the American public was given information that was based on the best foods and not the whole truth, and Robert Kennedy was very much trapped in that position at the same time. And he went ahead and collected evidence on his own behalf investigation of his brother. He he he. He really needed to to find out. What happened very quickly? It wasn't a wasn't everything where he could let that go to discern. What was happening on a on a very short time span. I think within fifteen maybe twenty four hours after the assassination taking place was not the evidence collected at that time where he had pretty good handle on it. So once he understood that he basically used that information, and that evidence to to to discuss this with the Russian government and kept us out of World War three what we were looking at at a scenario of that happening immediately following this assignation with the Russian government was on full alert. And to his credit. He he took that upon himself and kept us out of that. Now, the subsequently he took that evidence and. Made agreements with Johnson ministration kept them in an office and didn't getting blow this out of the water for the Johnson ministration then. And kept going hoping that he could gain power. And and and take us back the direction that his brother initially put us on which was what he thought was most important course. And in doing that. Of course, he reached those agreements, and what ahead and the notify Johnson it's gonna wind at sixty eight. The take us back to weigh things were and he was very aware that he might not make that this evidence was instructed death, president Kennedy secretary Evelyn Lincoln would help him keep the evidence secure and out of the official investigation to the FBI. And and the and the Johnson. Illustration during that process, just tell told her that if they didn't make it this evidence was to stay secured and to not fall under the under the guise at the any agency. They would classify it or take it away from the American public at the same time. It wasn't put out there for the protection of the remaining Kennedy family, so very few people were aware that this was happening. And then of course, he didn't make it in the two on Lincoln's credit who was a totally devoted her life to president Kennedy was with my about twelve years in total. She did exactly what she was told to do. And then close to her passing. She found someone that she trusted to to take the bulk of this material that came out of the White House and came from from Robert Kennedy directly, and at some of the evidence involved in the assassination, and and some of the hurting that the details of the administration and so forth. So the when she passed she took this information willed it to Robert white and Robert Reich was close friend of mine who lived in Maryland, we grew up in a same sort of area. And then, of course, he wound up with all of this. And then as someone who is a lover of history brought me into it. We looked at it reviewed it. Started to realize what we what would we dealing with? Now that time I was contacted by ceases which is the Canadian intelligence services that notified the CIA about what the the transfer and what I had in my possession out of death. Of course, Robert white was contacted by President Reagan who instructed him in both of us on what to expect what was coming which one of those things was that we'd both be called to testify. The assassination records review board. And that we'd better have our our our stuff wired because obviously the stuff that came through Bobby Kennedy was fighting infighting between the Robert Kennedy and the Johnson ministration about this material when it when it in one thousand nine hundred sixty three and sixty four and the and there was interested parties, and we'd better have our story straight. Christopher were you legally obligated to keep this material or were you not supposed to have it. Very good. Very very interesting question because that was a question that was posed by the Justice department to me, and and sealed interrogation had under their opinion. I wasn't legally able to have this information. It should have been turned into the FBI and the Johnson. At that time. But. This stuff at pass to a legally to to Robert white throughout the Lincoln. Ponder death. And. A judge had done that with the legal manner. And she had contacted the the Kennedy family, and I believe the Jackie library. It didn't didn't contested at the time. But the big problem was is the federal government was aware of the formation. And at the end the bulk of it what it contained so secret. So covert that nobody knew what was there. So they they decided after they started to do duty investigations on this and found out what we had and what was going on. They when they finally came to me, and when I had been called in. They were questioning what you know that I didn't have the right to have this legally that it wasn't wasn't a legal transfer. And this was supposed to be pulled in and classified. And I I was essentially having this material was an accessory after the fact. When we come back from the break, Christopher we'll get into the evidence, of course of in. How compelling it was to this investigation in a very strange way. Bobby Kennedy always felt guilty that because of his efforts chasing down the mob and everything else that he was responsible for the president's assassination. Did you come across anything that might have pointed to that? Well, of course, we we we did we can't crossed by a lot of information. And of course, Lyndon Johnson was a was asked by by not just a. For the vice presidency. But he he took up. He took brothers up on that. And when he did he. Hoover. I told him without a doubt that if he if you Johnson didn't come on board for that ticket that wouldn't be Kennedy administration. So they took Johnson, but Johnson had was there to protect us some of the interest in the United States and some of those interests with the defense contracts and other interest was organized crime. So as as he came on board and the Kennedys tried to fall in line, but in nineteen sixty two and they had a falling out the bay of pigs and didn't trust the CIA any further. They they wanted to separate themselves from that. Of course, Bobby Kennedy took it upon himself to adamantly at a aggressively go after organized crime in the United States and persecuted and prosecuted these individuals, and and and try to counterbalance Johnson physician. So yeah, they certainly they certainly were involved in all of this. All right. We'll stay with us Christopher. We're gonna come back in a moment. Christopher Fulton with us with his wife, Michelle. They wrote the book the inheritance the poison fruit of JFK's. Assassination. His website is linked up at coast to coast.

But you know, we all have dreams about getting lost or getting nowhere running around at circles, and though you know, these are all seemingly, you know, trivial experiences, you believe that all of these streams have something to teach us about clues about not only who we are, but also why we're here. Sure. Absolutely. Only giving example that good. I, I had a dream that a lot of people have in different fields. My version. I teach him professor at LSU so dreams. I walk into a classroom but don't know what subject I'm supposed to teach. And so you know, I figure, okay. I'll throw out a few lines of, right, you know, and and see what they say. And then I'll get an, I. Idea of what was supposed to be doing their the students turn their heads. They ignore me. They walk out of the classroom. That's the dream. Now most people say, oh, that's an anxiety dream act that actors have dreams like that where they don't know their lines would play in what mine is so funny. It's interesting how you say that everybody, I didn't know that everybody fits whatever their their chosen field is. Mine is I'm doing. I'm reading the news with Walter Cronkite. I am reading the rue news with Walter Cronkite, and my script is completely out of order. Right? And I'm always on the wrong page, right? And Walter is sitting there and he cannot believe that I can't get the frigging script in order and I can't either because here is my I, I'm sitting with Walter Cronkite. He's the big that the daddy really, and your anxiety is really a feeling of inadequacy when you're with him, not measuring up right of all the times in the world for my script to be out of order and why didn't it. But the script in order before it's not about the script, it's about your feeling that this is done on purpose to get you to feel more deeply into that feeling and recognized that you probably have that feeling a lot in your life. And so it's point the script is just a ruse kind of trick to get you to have that feeling in connection to whatever Walter represents. He's clearly an archetypal guy, right? I have one with Stevie Wonder once performing on the floor where I couldn't get the words and. Right? And I was having a lot of anxiety at the time I was away from home and feeling really disconnected. And then every night I would have the same dream and the closer I got to home the more lines I could remember, but well, you're saying that's not anxiety. I certainly thought it was. It was singing with Stevie Wonder on stay. Okay. Underneath it is feeling of an adequacy. Well, isn't that what he is?.
