"Controversial at least within the entertainment industry. I should add so with the pandemic. We had obviously lockdowns in various countries. All over the world and that meant that businesses like movie theaters were empty for most of twenty twenty movie production studios thus had some tough choices to make for any film that was essentially in the can and thus ready for distribution. What do you do do you sit on it for a year and hope that things get better than you just wait. Do you wait for various cities to start opening up and then aggressively market the film in those regions and make it available to those theaters. I mean if some cities opened up much later than others. How's that affect your strategy. Does that mean you have to have a rolling movie premiere where it's going to launch in like five cities one week maybe three cities the following week. You know that kind of roll out is tough to manage all gets really really complicated and You also just didn't know if people would go to the movies right like even with movie theaters open. People might be too concerned about their health to go and sit in a big room with a bunch of other people so there was no guarantee that releasing a film in theaters would even be a success in the first place. So back in twenty twenty. We just didn't know how long things were going to be. Really bad and to be fair even as i record this in early june of twenty twenty. We still don't know how long things are going to be. really bad. Things in the united states are opening up like crazy. But we don't yet know if that's a good thing so eighteen. D and warnermedia made the decision to make all of the twenty twenty one theatrical releases out of warner brothers studios available on the hbo max streaming service. That decision caused some major waves in the entertainment industry. You of course had the movie theater chains that were really upset with films available to watch at home. How our movie theaters going to convince people to come into a theater. Various filmmakers also got upset because they envisioned their work being experienced on a big screen. Not in someone's little home theater setup at least not on its initial run other movie studios also got upset because now they also had these properties that were sitting on a shelf and they felt the pressure to release them digitally so as not to lose ground to water brothers but they also didn't upset the same folks that were brothers hat. It was a very situation in the industry for consumers on the other hand. I think it was a pretty darn good deal. I mean seeing film on your television is always a different experience from going to the movies. But the means that you can enjoy some entertainment and.

Streaming has helped Amazon acquire new subscribers and make it a real competitors toe other streaming services owned by Legacy TV and movie studios. I think they're taking streaming really, really seriously, and they have the deep pockets to support that ambition. But will consumers eventually tap out of so many streaming services?

They were right about work from home. And you know employees perks and freedom and responsibility and they did have some some re read is but the senate can be things. They wanted to downsize. They were tired of this. And maybe there are some people who live you know how it is for people who live for this kind of drama and i think just like what's the maximum out we can offer to get the people who are not into working anymore out of the building. Yeah just let's i think. Coin based did a similar thing. Like if you really want to talk about this at work go start your own coin bass or bass clearly seemed like toxic. I don't know anything about clean based like this is so out of my realm. I only know this from like reading a couple articles but my feeling is just like all of this job. It's like just you ever meet a crypto person like a certain worldview like worldview is like you. Know very very libertarian extreme. Whatever you know sometimes chaotic sometimes anarchists. Like they're just yeah. They're unique breed. And then you put a crypto person with a wo- crowd like this is the most explosive combination of individuals like since gen-x and or and boomers versus millennials. Like them in the same legal. I i got a little bit. Like crypto help. Because i was like i wrote the story about an fte horses. And i talked to these people. And i was like actually so interesting. I know nothing about grip down. I will say like obviously the energy south is a huge problem. And i thought it was hilarious. What you did yesterday cloudy broke their hearts. Everyone was so funny. But it is like i mean i do think like clearly like we're moving towards this centralized system and exciting and cool and interesting but it does seem chocolate. The mouth love cheese. I thought that was the most interesting Part of crypto like i think owning digital assets that are one of one and trading them like if you get great joy from it. I kind of think that's cool. I think that's kinda fun and like unique and interesting like feels of blade runner Adding a gaming. I mean i think like at what i wrote about with these horses and stuff. Which is the conference game. And it's like having ownership i play fortnite like if there is some kind of like. Nfc integration relate. You're you're you. Have this kind of like.

"Just you know treat us more fairly an stop talking to journalists on the phone. I was like well. I have more listeners than you have readers therefore why wouldn't i just put it on all in. Podcast this podcast. I know better than anyone. Because i cover youtubers and as any youtube or we'll tell you they're not giving why would they give you for anything. They'll put it on their youtube channel and monetize it exactly. I mean total that the world that i operate in. I don't expect anyone to like. I've been in that world for over a decade. So like i just think this whole like i just don't like being caught up into these narratives about like the silicon valley so although i have done it to myself a little bit because i do like to get into drama with those people but like i ratings i kind of him getting tired of it like i have cooled off on it only because i like these people are ultimately like not that relevant might be and i don't think they like actually care about the night and i love technology reason i write about this is because i'm so obsessed with it i you know i. The creator step is something that i have been a believer in since the beginning like that industry of fascinated with that whole shift and shift in media. I wanted to be a meteoroid reporter i mean. That's one of the reasons i wanted to have on the pod and i was like you know i feel like it's gotten so i feel like you know. Especially with the andriessen. Horowitz targeting media companies. The whole thing has become so toxic. And there's probably sixty seventy percent. We agree on and to be able to talk about that as kind of right to be able to talk to you about twenty subjects like we did today. It's actually kind of interesting content and like everybody's like oh well if you have on the pockets you gotta talk about the seven times you disagree and i'm like well armstead. You remember them. And i think when i blame a lot of this you know. I feel like the zuckerberg and then the trump presidency put everybody on tilt zuckerberg made our industry look like marauding people who just don't care then you add to it. The trump presidency which made a lot of us feel disempowered that we can make any change in that. You know there's just this maniac running the country so then everybody's just fighting with everybody talks. I will say also just like. I'd only about injuries at all. 'cause like whatever i really don't have the i mean i have very close friends that work there. I love on a really. Yeah that's fascinating that you cast before. I'm okay thank You know. I will say like it seems was subject you know i know that sub seconds gotten themselves into controversy because of some of those people they gave advances to i three right wing people. They get angry. Like i don't know what he is anymore but people that are controversial. No hey glenda's weird. He's literally far-left gay guy. He's last bonds like on tucker every day. I don't understand his politics river -tarian i think it's like not Liberal libertarian don't like he wants less libertarian. People delivers here and people are like. I think they're actually pretty morally. Consistent like those libertarian. People at least. I know and i have a lot of good friends at work reason. You know they have a moral consistency and whether or not you agree with it. I think certain. Libertarians especially on twitter actually consistent. I have no idea what glenn on about like. He is very confusing. So i don't know. I just i like sub stack. Did get a new york times columnist. Also gang conservative andrew sullivan. Oh man no. He left for subject he was speaking. He made feel unsafe at seen. They wrote him out of the same thing with bari. Y so it does seem like those people quit. I mean i don't blame them for quitting. If i was an opinion columnist. Hello ecorse you can make more money. If you have a good audience doing. They felt like they were being targeted inside their own publications Andrew specifically said like people did not want him at new york. Magazine were lottery to get him out. Saving with barry weiss but you know listen. It's inside baseball. And i mean. I think like if you feel that way than than starting around right like i think like i would just be nice. If the new york times opinion page or you know back in the day just predates you being a journalist but there was this kind of concept that republicans democrats conservatives straight people gay people whatever and it was really like a new york thing when i grew up in newark and spent thirty two years there where you kind of engaged with people who fervently disagreed with had a great debate. Great conversation had beers at a burger. Went down to pass tease. You know or whatever you know and the odeon and you just had a good time chopping it up and now it's kinda like i can't be friends with you. We can't be in the same building. I feel unsafe. Ju- think people are just being a little too snow flaky. No generation down. I feel like you guys are all snowflakes. I'll be thoughtful about miles. I would say what what for me. Marked a big change was kind of the rise of this trump like mindset. We're is very like antagonistic. In like having covered the two thousand sixteen election running social for political news site for two years. I just saw that that transformation and hostility that they came an enemy wellness owning the lives. Became like a relentless pursuit. Yeah and it's just really and it's also like making a lot of bad safe arguments like i said. I think i'm perfectly happy to hear libertarian arguments for things. Whether or not i grew but i think like there's certain people that just make a lot of like bad teeth attacks and so that's that's i think the unfortunate thing and of course twitter rewards that so we do live in a bad through communication system to get canceled today or yesterday or do you think she just was tired of dealing with this nonsense. I was trying to figure it out. And i was like if if they if they cancelled allen. That feels like well. She is funny. Because i i like totally. Denuclearize is still on whenever somebody did that. Read on on badly workplace management. Or really. I think like so rich and successful if she doesn't have to deal with any of this anymore. She wants to not do it like i don't really know what happened. I do think people like were making it clear that like her baby was unacceptable. But i think she was the show anymore. Yeah felt like so. She delegated like it doesn't seem like she was on top of what was happening in the office. You just came in. Did the comedy in latin. I i don't know. I think it's like with those situations. I don't know a ton about shows. But i was reading a lot of stuff about like scott rudin as to. It's also there's a shift in what's acceptable and what socially acceptable definitely like. When i was starting out had bosses yellow a throw something at and that actually didn't even seem crazy whereas now a tweet that out and that is unacceptable. People cry in the nineties. When i was an hour. Then do it on purpose. But i would make people read their copy outlawed in the editorial meeting only if they up. It'll be like oh you should reach your column out loud. For twenty people read it out loud and be spelling errors. I mean ears. I own but i mean back then get in the magazine and then i did something like they put facts in there. That are wrong. I'm like wrong facts like did you check this. Where'd you get from And i like get out just about any time advance. I think different than like probably what like alan was summoned. I think there's a level of accountability. And also sangley these these work environments have been really racist and sexist and like it's kinda lonely and they scott rudin seemed like who freely deranged rude things. Here's a really good movie which i knew. The kid who was in kevin whelan used to play basketball with him and it gets morelli called swimming with sharks You have to see this movie swimming with sharks. It's basically paradoxically. Ironically kevin spacey cabin. Waylon kicked kevin comes enemies and he's an assistant and in hollywood. The assistants are known for being absolutely demolished degraded having things thrown at them. Yeah and this movie became a frank. Whaley yeah really nice kid who used to play basketball with. I mean you wanna talk about like the cool ninety that you missed used to play basketball at the chelsea piers with diddy. Dj clue queen latifah Leonardo di caprio. The kid who owned butter like this was like the nineties culture. Celebrities artists writers and magazines. Were like the whole attack. That was like david as from the source like that was like the the the nature of it and it was kind of cool but swi- charges. I really epic dark. It's really hard by. What did we miss. We miss anything today. S ilan oh he did a great job..

"Was i know. He apologized he did. I think he's tried to make amends in like i think the past few years he's kind of just been doing his thing uses podcast like he's i'm not concerned about him. I guess he's come up as much for me. Jake has kind of taken the opposite approach for like. He's leaned into controversy and he spent a lot of late. Release screwed up things. i mean. he's been accused of multiple by multiple women of sexual assault. you know. I recently did a story about this house that he started. Which kinda clean blueprint for lot of these clauses. Were kids as young as fourteen living there and he was basically exploiting for profit various ways yes so like and by the way has tried a lot of different things like jake jake famously. Had this affect tried to launch a social network called locker room where like men and women were separated and he's he's tried venture firms before he had. Tgt capital his former vc. Find none of us ever worked out as somebody said like j. Paul has most successful at promoting. Jake paul like. He's one of those people it's just like controversial. He lives from the controversy but in like really toxic way. So i was really. I was really interested to see you like a big name. Investors backing his latest rolling. Find only because none of his previous ventures have been successful. Yeah i mean there is an argument. I think that these answers have very large audiences and perhaps that could act distribution four. You know what the fund invested in the same way of that. When i have people on this podcast you know gets ten. Thousand people are thousand people to try an app so that is reasonable. I think like you know. There's millions of influencers out there and there's tons of people way more relevant. Jake paul and why are you choosing this guy like i do think it sends a message especially to other creators especially women creators message. I think the message is that this is the personnel. We're going to stand behind frank. This type we you know for us. Investors that are trying to rebrand themselves is like stewards of the creator economy who which creators they align himself with a message about how envisioned that world and jake is very emblematic of this Exploitative era of the creator economy where there were no protections where these kids being taken advantage of j. famously had his talent signees contracts where he was entitled to like twenty percent of their income for years even if they quit his group. It's such a. it's so radioactive. That i think that you know these Seem to be a a number of these really big youtuber specifically seemed to be pretty dopey and they do stupid things and adding stupid to capital markets and two companies where people work. This is really dumb because the people who work at that company then get judged on the stupidest thing you know. Some dopey kid like jake. Paul does and we don't even have to. This is no longer hypothetical. Because i found out about this david dobric character because i saw him driving a model x. Tesla and like getting air on the streets. We saw that video and i immediately said This is unbelievably dangerous. What if they spun out of control and went into those row of houses there and somebody's in the front porch or somebody walks out there. You kill somebody. i mean. Young people do stupid stuff. But they're doing it on youtube to make money and that to me seems to be that makes youtube culpable. You agree with me on that. Like they're coble. If they are monitoring dobrich content they are his partner and they're endorsing him and they're promoting him therefore they're responsible for his behavior on the platform. I think yeah. I think if they're in their premium partnership which is the main thing that That youtube has over. These creators is like giving them access to the premium ads. And so the the big punishment a lot of them have gotten when you do something bad is like. Oh you're kicked out of our google preferred network so yeah. I do think it's on youtube but at the same time. David dobric is so much bigger than youtube. I mean he's huge on so many platforms. And i think it's up to investors to do due diligence other people that passed on that round because they looked at some videos. Were like this is a liability respect the speaking specifically of despu which is invite only photo sharing app which i downloaded and i guess i downloaded the public. Not the test flight. What why was this app so hot. Is it good well. It is an interesting product. it's kind of like mimicking. The experience of using a disposable camera on so you kinda take photos in develops the next day. The main reason people wanted to kind of be like people downloaded it because david was involved in it. It was david's project. And when you have a fan base of thirty million people that are captive they will download your app like you said it's distribution but obviously if you get into controversy cancelled or whatever suddenly like you said all of these hardworking people that are in product and engineering and everything that did a lot of work in this offer tied to that. Sounds like a celebrity. I mean right like same thing if you refer celebrities startup. I and it was a controversy that he may have actually stole the artwork for it. Which i'm not sure if that actually came out but My friend alexis ohana backed it and davis left the company now and you know just what a crazy disaster for everybody but i mean dobrich. Problems are now just absolutely insane. He has Done stunts that one of the stunts. I saw the swinging thing explained to me like he's his friend. Jeff off abaco is hard to describe because it's weird they were in late talk show Baco where they were like swinging off of it like the arm of it for fine around in late and he. David was being crazy as even always does in push push for the views you have to be crazier basically swan in a way that his friends smashed into the side of of the baco and and fractured his whole face and that was covered up. And i mean what a disaster the these stunt youtube hs. I i remember talking to susan. Jackie about it and i called her out on twitter. You should not allow people. doing these. stunts on youtube should be instantly turned off if they do a stunt. That's dangerous because people were hanging off buildings and a number of them fell off. It's so gnarly that it. Just i mean i hate to be cynical but i don't think youtube cares all that much about this. I mean and they cared. They would not like rewarded. These people with millions and millions of followers unfortunately agreement on that. Yeah the nature of the internet. People will always be more and more outrageous for for views. But it's up to you to say look even you're allowing them to continue on the platform with them in your preferred network. Don't do marketing for that right. Like don't put them in your ad. Campaigned in your and your rewind video like meet. Those shouldn't be the people that you should highlight love. Squarespace where space is such a fantastic company founder. Anthony is amazing and if you want to create a blog published content to promote your business or a special project of some type. Maybe you want to sell a product online. You can do.

So quinton what spurred this sharp rise in returning cash to investors well. It's effectively a statement of corporate confidence last year. When things were extremely uncertain it was rational for companies to hoard cash and in fact cash balances rose to something like one point nine trillion dollars and now that the economy is clawing. Its way back to normalcy. It is perhaps rational to return some of that to shell is beat out three dividends and be that through share buybacks. And what are some possible drawbacks to these big share repurchases both for companies and for investors. While i would say there are several potential drawbacks. one is that for companies engaging in buybacks one key question of course should be. Are you buying back stock at a good level or are you buying back overprice stock. I is there. Is there some better use of proceeds out there. Could that money be better reinvested into your own business a second consideration. This one shell is whether you know. Sometimes the criticism is that buybacks allow executives to make it easier to hit their compensation targets for example by reducing the of shares outstanding. And thus making it easier to hit earnings per share targets. So i think childish should be on watch for instances of that and a third question perhaps is a political one. Which is that in the past. Sometimes huge amounts of buybacks have proven politically controversial. There is a sense. Sometimes that that money would be better. Reinvest into growing businesses and these huge amounts of buybacks potentially add some fresh flame to that controversy clinton web in hong kong. Thanks for joining us.

Warner Bros to release all 2021 films on HBO Max and in cinemas on same day

"In Hollywood Warner Media has announced that a basically their movie slate Is going to be on its streaming service, HBO Max the same day that it opens to the degree that any movie can open right now or in the next months ahead in theaters. This is shattering the window that had been a foundation of the movie business in which movies playing theaters and then they move on to another platform and the studio's milk of the movie all the way through, you know, with DVD sales and going to a cable channel or whatever, and make a lot of money. That's what it has been But now we're in the streaming world and Warner's. I will say absolutely stunned everybody, including the people who made the movies that are going to now be in this what they call day and date arrangement. They didn't even give them a heads up. They just announced it. I'm too heard about this the night before, and I was telling everybody I could reach this see what they'd heard and people didn't know. They had kept this idea completely under wraps and shocked the town and Maura importantly, perhaps Warner's did not tell the feet Your owners that they were doing this and this is it. This is basically the beginning of the end of the theater business as we know it because Warner's is the largest studio in terms of output. And now we've got 17 films, The entire 2021 slate going direct to HBO. Max the same day there in theaters. These are Sequels to the Matrix Sequels to the conjuring. This is all of the Warners movies Big small and in between. And you know there's really no going back from this. I don't think because even though the CEO of Warner Media Jason Kyle are is already saying this is just because of the pandemic in 2022, we could reevaluate. I just don't see how you do that. This is their policy. 18 T bought Warner media to explicitly to start a streaming service and take on Netflix. They don't care about the theatrical business. And now here, it shows and I think you're really going to see a catastrophic End of the movie business as we know it. Yeah, I mean, I was texting with one of their competitors the night before this announcement, the spin was the theater business will be reborn, and it will become this much better experience and I'm like rolling my eyes and yes, they didn't go to the theaters. They didn't go to anybody because they knew that with the blowback would be they just dropped it And I will note something like Godzilla versus Kong. Legendary paid 75% of the budget for that movie and basically can't control its destiny Got an offer from Netflix wanted to sell. The necklace was blocked by Warners because Warner's paid the other 25% and had the deal that give it the power to block that sale. And then they wake up in the morning saying, Guess what? We're putting it on our streaming service. There's no deal in place. This is not how we do business in Hollywood. You don't just say I'm totally twisting your arm, but I may have pulled it off. I think there was going to be incredible blowback from film makers, producers all of their partners, this kind of behavior. It's a digital thing bloodless. Move, But I think in Hollywood, you're gonna find a certain amount of blowback. Yeah, they're gonna have to pay out all the talent because there are expectations of box office bonuses and back in that are cooked into deals when you do this, and we saw this with Wonder Woman when it went to streaming. You got to pay out the filmmaker and you got to pay out Gal Gadot, the star and Maurin importantly, though, there is a feeling that the theatrical experience is being threatened here and you mentioned yes that the theaters could possibly reinvent himself. Cells. But let's say this impacts theaters 25 30%. That is a significant hit that the theaters will take on. A lot of them will go out of business. As we know the hits or what Dr the theater business, and even a 30% decrease would cause many theaters to go out of business. Perhaps the ones that remain would reinvent themselves Great. But talent here I mean, think of someone like John to the director of in the heights. He specifically took this movie Toe Warner Brothers when Netflix was offering a lot more money because of the experience he had with crazy Rich Asians, which also spurned Netflix for Warners and got a theatrical release and became a huge cultural phenomenon. Because of that theatrical release, he went Toe Warner's thinking he'd get that again. Now he's getting day and date. That's not what he signed up for. Yes, I mean, just let me be clear. I'm not the one who said the theater business will be reborn. That's the dream of executive in this business. And as I said, Yes, he is a perfect example. John Hsu of what does he think of this? And what will he think? Next time? He has a project that he wants to take somewhere. Thank you, man. Thank you. That's meant

Netflix Subscriber Growth Slows Amid Heightened Competition

"Of Netflix in the premarket right now down about 5% after the streaming service came out with earnings that missed estimates when it comes to a new subscribers and the forecast for future subscriber growth, a sign That the post pandemic future for the streaming company may be a little more cloudy than expected a foursome insights we welcome Eric Hagstrom, forecasting analyst at E Marketer. Good to talk with you this morning, Eric. What's your takeaway from Netflix Earnings should be thinking now that this company is in a better position when viewers have fewer options and her sort of shut in Well, let's let's look at the big picture. First off, they've added more subscribers so far in the first three quarters of 2020, then they did all of last year 2018 and those were their two best years ever in terms of music. Hi, Brad In total. Now, when you look at their major markets like the U. S, where there are already over half of all household in the U. S, described Netflix and more than half You already have access to it via password sharing things like that growth in subscribers. I always love And now this is something that Netflix was cautioning against in the first half of this year, where they saw really, really strong subscriber adds worldwide, so they missed their subscriber guidance by about 300,000 drivers but again In context they have just under 200 million subscribers. So it's not a massive change against expectation. So where do you see Opportunities for growth for the company. Now is it reached a saturation point when it comes to subscriber growth. Well, there certainly is a little bit more room for growth in the U. S. In terms of subscriber growth. There still is a good amount of room internationally for subscriber growth, and they are investing in new originals and knew what Contact to really help grow their base internationally. But in some of their more developed markets like the U. S. They are going to have to drive revenue growth by driving prices higher and they do have a significant amount of pricing power despite the competition, But again, subscriber growth could be a lot slower moving forward in the more developed market. As economy start to reopen that opens the possibility for Netflix to begin ramping up production. How crucial is that for the company in terms of getting back on a firmer footing for investors? Well, ramping up production is very important for Netflix. But Netflix does produce the show's on a pretty long time line. So, according to Netflix, at least their constant relief schedule won't be affected until sometime later next year on Dis stands in stark contrast, many of their competitors like Disney or Warner Media. You work in a much shorter production timeline and are already experiencing production delays and content release place as a result. Picnic corona virus and related shutdown. So any, you know, re certain production for Netflix really won't hit their service until sometime later next year, or even in 2022, so they're pretty set for the near future, At least any sort of research and production will be very good for, you know, kind of the mid term for them. Does the restart of production raise cash burn issues for the company. I know on their call last night, they said that they're in a good position and won't have to tap capital markets in our last minute here. Do you buy that? I do To certain extent, they borrowed a significant amount of money to fund future investments in media but again You know this is a company that has been profitable on in a bit of basis for awhile, but they have had negative cash flow, and that situation has been improving with time on Daz the growth subscribers as they drive prices higher. I would expect that that free cash flow issue becomes a lot better over time.

Why Is HBO Max Still Not on Roku or Amazon Fire TV?

"One of the major problems with HBO. Max's launch isn't necessarily the content although we talked about why that may also be a problem area. It's that most of the country can't get it because Warner has not been able to work out carriage agreements with Roku or Amazon their fire products like fire stick. So if YOU WATCH TV Either of those places which are many many millions of people, Roku is just really flexing its muscle ought recently, you cannot watch HBO Maximus. Things. And in fact, they were so petty that when they sunset at HBO, they just deleted it like, yeah you could get hbo on your fire stick or even other gone and I delete peacock is the same situation but the deals just have not been worked out and so. You yes. You could make the counterargument that. The fact that people can't see it is just temporarily delaying the fact that people might not want to see what they can see wants to get it but short term, this is a major issue. Yes. So explain this to me like essentially the only people who can get it are those who have access to what Apple TV. You can watch it on your browser correct lake you can. Write. But if you're using primarily a fire sticker, a Roku to watch watch all your APPs, you just can't get HBO Max. It's not available through stores. Yes and I think that the line Amazon is drawing his interesting I don't have any opinions not nearly informed enough as to its legality or it's Best. Practices goods or tape or whatever. But it seems like HBO wants a little at Button to just be there whereas Amazon wants to put it inside of its channels choice. So basically, you're it's silo further away You could argue that that's because they want people to watch their prime video content instead but anyway, all of this is is ongoing in and. Jason Cholera who is now in charge Warner media made this big centerpieces conversations with the press after the firings the other day like they have to get it in front of people peacock is facing the same situation to and it reminds me once again that for as. Industry focuses we are, and like I watch TV through an apple TV and you might as well. This idea that we were pushing for a while that may be apple just kind of wanted to be the portal they wanted to be the thing that you used to watch your TV. Maybe.

Until what happened last fall when she had the unmitigated gall to sit next to George? W Bush had a cowboys football game in Dallas Texas at unforgivable. Well, then we had to go after her and we had got her with everything we got and so that's what they're doing right now and that's what they're doing now could she be mean? To I guess it's possible. It's Kinda surprising to me that if she is so mean and nasty and there's you know sexual harassment running rampant backstage at her show. Why didn't this come out a long time ago I haven't heard sexual harassment to now. Yeah. Something sexual in the she's just a mean person. She's just she has mean and the reason that were pointing out the cheese mean is because she hangs out with George W Bush well, she has to be mean if she'd hang out with your.

‘Ellen DeGeneres Show’ Workplace Is Under Investigation By Warner Media

"Reports of a toxic work, culture and crew furious over poor communication during the Corona virus shut down. Despite the bad reports, there have not been any direct allegations made about Ellen herself. For more on all the bad news that the Ellen Show will speak to Matt Donnelly Sr. Film writer at Variety, so essentially human resources representative for both the production company that makes Ellen just called Tele Pictures and Morning brother. It's which obviously, areas the program or distributes it have both come together and sort of pursuit of information about sort of the day to day experience for Ellen's employees, a member, we have changed the sort of reference the stories said that their goal is to ultimately create a work environment where ever wanted sort of protected. And also can sort of advance and flourish and safety, So I think it's you know, a pretty responsible move on their part, But at this point, what we know is that they're reaching out to current and former employees to discuss their experiences, where presumably will conduct as sort of a larger report about what if anything, needs to change their Now, let's talk about these two reports just to kind of see what we're working with here. Back in April, Variety reported on the treatment of crew members during the Corona virus locked down so very loosely when things initially shut down, there was crew members who were saying that we weren't really being told what was going to be the fate of our ours or our pay. And then when Ellen's resumed some sort of filming at her home, they were kind of left out of the lurch on that, too. And I guess they hired Nonunion workers to do that work instead of them. Yeah, A lot of the sources we spoke with who are familiar with the production basically say that her long term crew people have been with her sums of the entire 17 year run of the show. Just expected a better level of treatment in terms of if and when they would come back, You know, up until the moment we published a report that Legacy crew was told to sort of expect dramatically reduced compensation, even though the show of going on filming at the normal rate, so I think a lot of people thought sort of betrayed in away by mixed messages, especially for someone who's banner. Heather staying for her jealous to be kind, and some say this is very difficult situations, obviously, in the confusion and chaos of the Corona virus pandemic that hidden in some ways, it makes sense. Maybe hire those non union workers because they have to do something, maybe things that the union might not have agreed for their workers, depending on safety, and all that, So sometimes those things make sense. But they were just saying that They weren't even afforded that choice or whatnot. Of course. Yeah, I think it was a lack of transparency that really got people. And yes, you know, Krone viruses cause such a dramatic ripple effect how we do or more specifically how we don't do production at the moment. So, yeah, the union might have to look the other way occasionally on getting some people back to work instead of, you know, sort of a massive sun town. But again, I think it was that sort of lack of care. That really got to some long term employees. Yeah, and the pay was also an issue. I know. They told them you're gonna get reduced hours or reduced Pay that way. But shortly after you guys posted your story, then it started coming out. Well, well, they're going to get paid their full amount. They're full pay all that stuff. I think that the production sort of realised, But the right thing to do was especially because if you follow the logic through if they were taking the same amount of episodes, that means that this is going into syndicated viewership and selling the same amount of advertising No one's really losing money on the end. It's just obviously out of an abundance of caution here to figure out how to actually make the show. But you know again, and I think Hollywood is a town that when your staff looks the way that l Inez and you've got no. Ah, working family or some people put it in the over 17 years, they expect you to cover them The way they've covered. You end up with a large part of the frustration and you know another thing. That was in that same report was that you know, no one had even stepped in and said, How are you? How are your family? How is your mental house? Which I think a lot of companies, you know, including the publisher Variety. Ah, lot of people didn't do that. You know that They were here for you. If you knew Greece sources that child care if you need meditation class you any number of things to sort of band together in a really unprecedented in highly stressful time. A lot of people thought that that wasn't done and we're quite surprised. The other part of this. In mid July, Buzzfeed published a report alleging a toxic work culture there. There was an employee who said that there was some racist behavior going around and a few other things that just really made working there on the show, not really tolerable. The budget reports have sort of a spectrum of accused behavior that is troubling from to start a sort of ID on that atmosphere of intimidation and fear. You know, there was some accounts of verbal abuse their accounts of sort of, you know, an idea that overall senior leadership it Alan felt, but no, it was a privilege to work there. And anyone who might complain about sort of the emotional atmosphere. Even working conditions could just move on because they couldn't find anyone else who had died of work, Carella It's a much more serious stuff like sensitive people of color on the head from jokes about two African American females being taken for each other because they have the same hairstyle to another employee being sort of shouted down an angry and resentful because she suggested that the entire staff received diversity and inclusion training. You know all this is supported by historians. That's quite serious, especially, I would say in the world we live in, which is a post me to world and if you even look at what's been happening in this country in the past two months There is it's incredibly justifiable demand for a lack of this toxicity and for transparent, clear on how we're all treating each other at work. Not one thing that I found interesting is that there is no specific

Get more of those not markets. I it's going to be one of those to the idea that there's going to be fifteen streaming services at five ninety nine to fifty nine for like deck elec.

"Long dot or you're listening to KCRW this is morning edition I'm Kim masters and this is the Hollywood breakdown joining me as Matt Bellamy of The Hollywood Reporter and Matt we've known that you know this industry is disrupted or Warner brothers and Warner media it's parent are sort of the ultimate case study right now of who he is calling on Warner brothers was the premier studio in this industry for so many years and being the chairman of Warner brothers was the biggest deal imaginable and they have now announced that M. Sarnoff who who comes from the BBC America and has really good experiences very well regarded but is completely almost completely unknown in Hollywood is going to be the chairman of Warner brothers and at the same time Warner media is announcing the launch of this HBO Max which is the streaming service that they have been building toward and if they are pulling programming from all over the place it to service this thing this is a huge priority so first of all your people are gonna have to look at that and say do I need this demo and will this H. B. O. Max idea work and at the same time within the industry there's a question of what she what does this mean for Warner brothers I mean if Warner brothers now going to be subservient to the streaming service and does being chairman of Warner brothers really have any kind of clout and prestige or or are you just going to be taking orders effectively from Bob Greenblatt who runs the streaming service as well as these other cable channels and HBO he reports to John Stanky the head of Warner media as does Ansari off but it's not so clear what it all means in terms of who has power this really does represent a sign of the times and entertainment because when eighteen he bought the Time Warner assets it was very clear that the crown jewel was not Warner brothers it was HBO because they could leverage HBO to create a global streaming service that will hopefully in their words complete with Netflix and that's what every conglomerate is try and to do right now they're trying to leverage with their assets are create new stuff and go head to head with Netflix so you're seeing Warner media pull back a lot of the content that was out there most notably friends which is been streaming on Netflix is now going to switch over to this new HBO Max they're gonna start doing with a bunch of other shows on the CW on Turner on the Turner networks like TNT and TBS some CNN contact this is all going to be funneled into this H. B. O. Max streaming service which will be patched as an add on to H. B. O. or as its own thing a little bit more expensive than the traditional HBO cost currently and that's where we're at right now because Comcast is doing the same thing with the NBC universal shows like the office pulling it away from Netflix doing their own thing Disney is launching their own thing we're going to get into a very stratified ecosystem where the streaming services are tops and the contents suppliers are going to be the studios that they own and hopefully others they think I mean worse is made a fortune selling TV shows the with TV division is been a lead you know Big Bang theory two and a half men all of the shows and different networks very profitably and enjoying all of that reaping all of the rewards that followed and they just sold a huge project to Netflix Sandman so they're still looking to get that cash coming in the door obviously I don't I don't even know how you sorted out and I think more importantly people in the industry don't how you sort it out if I'm making a TV show and Warner brothers making that show what goes to the HBO MAX what goes somewhere else what do I sell to CBS or ABC or or Hulu or whatever so I think it's it's almost like this dizzying situation within the industry of figuring out who is going to emerge victorious and how these things are going to be sort yeah that's a that's a potential big change for Warner brothers which as you mentioned it has been this you know people say they're the arms dealer Hollywood in the sense that they have sold everybody but if you look at what Disney is doing this he is very purposefully holding back a lot of their stuff and they are trying to create an ecosystem around this new Disney plus streaming service that will be the one stop shop for Disney now Disney has a very strong consumer brand and people know Disney and they want Disney oriented content it's not quite the same for Warner brothers they don't have that brand name they just you you wouldn't the average person on the street wouldn't even know that one brothers produced two and a half men yeah it's probably the biggest revenue generator that the company has so I I just I think that it was very interesting to see how Warner's approaches this ecosystem and who they sell to and who they don't think from the consumer standpoint of course the question is how much does this cost they said it will be more than just a H. B. O. subscription streaming subscription of fifteen a month fifteen dollars a month you know the streaming services are gonna add up if you if you want this that or the other if you want the office if you want friends if you want the stranger things those are three different subscriptions thank you Matt thank you that's Matt Bellamy editorial director of the Hollywood reporter he joins me this Monday at one thirty on the business I'm Kim masters and this is the Hollywood break down and you are listening to morning edition here on KCRW guess.
