NBC's Kristen Welker on Improving Equity in the Newsroom
"Brought up something at that. Leads me to buy next topic. Which is diversity in newsrooms and you talked about one thing. That certainly affects that. Which is it pay journalism. It's rough for a long time. You know we. I definitely experienced for for many years but throughout your career. you know. you've been focused on improving newsroom diversity. And we've got a question from one of our each cure. Stacey her question is how does race inform the way you approach your work and i would also just follow up in and out onto say what do you wanna see. More of in order to improve equity in newsrooms. Well first of all. I think about andrea mitchell when you ask this question one of my mentors and what the newsroom looked like when she was here and how far we've come and i talked to her about this all the time. We have come so far from when you know she was. Maybe only one of two women in the dc bureau and now it is such an incredibly diverse place to work when you compare it to where she started our white house. Unit is mostly women. And that's something that were so incredibly proud of. We have a diversity in terms of race as well throughout all of mbc. And i think that. That's something that our president cesar conde has really put a focus on which makes me really proud to work at nbc. To answer the first part of your question though. Like how do i see myself. And how does race play a role in my journalism. I think that first of all. I mean i am a black woman. So i bring that sense and sensibility. That everything that i do. When i walk into work my goal is the same every day which is to make sure that i'm getting information and asking questions on behalf of the american people to give a voice to people who don't have a microphone who aren't sitting in the front row of the briefing room and so my goal doesn't change. I think that it's probably informed. In some instances by who i am how i grew up in the fact that i'm a black woman so for example and i go back to the talk question that i asked during the debate. A lot of people have asked me about that. How did you come up with that. Why did you ask that honestly. That question just came out of me got assigned the debate and then a couple of days later. I sat down and wrote that question. I read it to my husband. And i read it to my debate team with with whom i worked and you know we worked through it. We went through some different versions at some points. We even tossed it out by the way and i. It was really important to me to ask that question. So i was glad that i did. And i give that just as an example of one of the ways in which anyone could have asked that question. It was important for me to that question. I thought because a it was just within me. It was something that i really felt needed to be asked and i wanted to address the issue of race and equity really from like a different standpoint from the standpoint of the fact that so many families across the country see this moment as a moment of crisis and so. That's why i asked that question in that way. And and i do think that having a diversity of perspectives makes journalism

"President will campaign in georgia tonight as some of his allies. Tell nbc news. They are worried that phone call could depress republican turnout and even harm america's democracy. Lester kristen welker at the white house this evening. thanks tonight. Some house democrats are asking the fbi to investigate. The president's called of georgia official. The question is did it. Break the law pete. Williams has been reporting on this. What do we know lester. Most legal experts say it would be very hard to bring a federal or state criminal case. Federal law makes it a crime to knowingly and willfully attempt to deprive the residents of a state of fair election keyword knowingly a prosecutor would have to prove that the president knew that he lost the election and that meet might be difficult since he seems to think he won. A georgia state law makes it a crime to import tune that is to urge someone to commit election fraud.

And that might be hard to get.

Trump and Biden make final pitch to voters at last debate
"All right. We're going to turn now to our team of political strategist to get their take on what happened last night. We heard from Democratic political strategist Karen Finney and Republican strategist Scott Jennings yesterday ahead of the debate, and they are here again this morning. Good morning to you both. Good morning. Scott. I want to start with you. You said yesterday you thought the mute feature of the ability to mute the candidates. Different intervals could actually work in Trump's favor. You called it a medicine that would help him because it would let him make his economic argument. Did it work? Did that happen? Yeah, It's always fun being right and Donald Trump last night, you know whether it was the mute button or whether it was his own personal self control. Finally. He actually let Joe Biden talk, and I think it also let Donald Trump think about what he wanted to say next, which then caused them to actually have a choice. Sort of a debate over policy, which is the way trumps always needed this election to be framed up. Now it's late. A lot of folks have already voted or made up their minds. But finally, for one night, we actually had a debate over policy, and Donald Trump sounded pretty good. So can what do you make of that Because some Republicans are supporters of President Trump had reportedly said, You know, we just need here. Joe Biden speak that He'll essentially forgive him along enough piece of rope that he'll hang himself. We'll make some kind of Gaff. What did you make of having that the space that move between them and the ability to let them both talk didn't work, divided? Well, I think it actually worked to both of their favor. I'm willing to say that and congratulations, God, I thought of you, actually, not without being so disciplined. I thought it's Scott actually talk to him because you know, and it does matter. I mean, look, my other critique. Obviously, most importantly of President Trump's performance was that a lot of what he said was still untrue. But you know, one of the things as communicator we know is that the tone of the style of what you say matters and and I certainly think the space between them aloud for more of a conversation. I certainly thought that Vice President Biden also had an excellent night. In that, you know, he was ableto be clearly talking about substance as well. I think a number of the hits from President Trump really didn't seem tto land. Quite so well. And there were a couple of pretty cringe worthy moments like the conversation about Children who had been separated from their parents that despite his demeanor, I don't think worked well for Trump and I think Again. Gave Biden the space to actually have a comment about that. Instead of just, you know, the kind of behavior we saw in the first debate. So I want Oh, I wantto ask about one particular moment. The moderator Kristen Welker of NBC, asked President Trump what he would say to Americans. Who have not liked how how he has talked about race or seem to exacerbate racial divides in this country, and this is how he responded. Let's by the state. Nobody has done more for the black community and Donald Trump. And if you look with the exception of Abraham Lincoln, possible exception, but the exception of Abraham Lincoln. Nobody has done what I've done. I mean, Republicans believe that Scott it discounts the actions of several previous presidents. I mean, Lyndon Johnson signed the Civil Rights Act in 1964, ending segregation. Yeah. I mean, I could do without the the bravado and the hyperbole about Abraham Lincoln. However, if you was that entire exchange, Donald Trump actually does have a story to tell When you talk about criminal justice reform and his support of the historically black colleges and universities, the economic numbers prick over it. He has a story to tell. And then he pivoted and said, What did you do while you were in office for the last eight years under Obama for for your 47 year career and actually take it take out the hyperbole about leaking, which, by the way, has always been patently ridiculous. The story. He could tell about what he did not too bad. So, aside from that I was happy with the case he brought on that.
A Look At The Last Presidential Debate
"Last night in Nashville us, President Donald, trump, and the man who hopes to replace him former vice. President Joe Biden debated for the second and final time. In this presidential campaign, it did meet the unexacting challenging challenge Rav of being a less rigidly undignified spectacle than the previous encounter between the candidates portions of it indeed could almost have been mistaken for some sort of discussion of. Policy but did we learn anything from it and is really imaginable that it changed any minds or moved any needles on joined for a thorough examination of last night shenanigans by Monaco's news editor Chris Chumash and US election correspondent, Thomas Lewis, and Chris. First of all to you in the studio of what if anything stuck out for you this time last time it was all about the bickering and name calling what was this one about so to start. With it was simply the news is that there was no not as much and name calling as last time. Frankly I wish we could have three debates like last night's it was actually a substantive debate with quite strong policy differences exposed between the two that were interesting and it also what I what struck me was it signalled how the parties, how both parties have really shifted stances in a couple of different ways. So there was some. Interesting exchanges, for example, even on on foreign policy, which we hadn't heard before on North Korea where trump for example lauded the fact that he had met with North Korea's leader Biden was the one to say you know he would only meet with the North Korean leader if they were preconditions attached, this is a complete reversal compared to Obama and the way that Republicans tend to be the tough one saying they wouldn't meet with leaders in the past. Racism was an interesting discussion on race as well. We're both sort of showed how much the country has shifted by both sort of highlighting the fact that they actually want to be. Put to put it in one way a bit softer on on crime to to be a bit softer particularly on drug crimes things like that that you know in the nineties the US took a very tough stance on and put a lot of black Americans behind bars both sort of highlighted their software. Abilities here in order in order to to cater to that to confront racism in the country. So there are some interesting policy shifts that I found in. Thomas what do you ascribe that difference in tone of this debate to worthy to candidates president trump in particular I guess. Taking a deliberately different approach or had they been backed into it by the changes in format? I think was the certain certainly Andrew. An element of being deliberate by Donald trump particularly because I think it's played so badly for him last time around during this railroading performance that we saw in Cleveland Ohio the start Tobe. So I think it was intentional. On his part and on Joe Biden's parts to I think the intention was to really just hammer home that the failings in the United States that moment essentially trump's fault and trying to tack every little element of it back onto the president as being unable to be an effective leader I thought Donald. Trump, was the one. Who really started coming back to his own talking points and I thought there were two or three kind of quite clear lines there I thought it was clear that Donald Trump was trying to portray himself as this kind of insurgent outsider. Once again, like we saw in twenty sixteen, which struck me as quite. Weird because he has been president for four years of course but it seemed to work for him last time and I think that's something he's not grasping for to try and cement his support within his base. We also saw him try to bring in Joe Biden's son. Hunter. Bite. and have been some fatty sort of suspicious revelations as an emails that actually many people now believe Iraqi the work of disinformation players but he brought that up several times and I, thought the. Moderator Kristen Welker ABC News She did actually pretty well to allow people to respond to the more outrageous things either candidate was saying, but she didn't let that dominates and I thought that really let the debate itself thing really. Well, let's troy rewarding the behavior. He wished to see more of our ye sensible discussion of actual policy. We have a couple of clips from the candidates they talked about immigration. This was what president trump had to say her children are brought here. By coyotes and lots a bad people cartels and they're brought here and they used to use them to get into our country. We now have a stronger borders we've ever had. We're over four hundred miles of brand new wall uc see the numbers and we let people in, but they have to come in legally and they come in through. WAS President Trump for Chris returning to basically the talking point with which he launched his campaign for president in the first place, which was the the specter of mass illegal immigration teaming over the Rio Grande is it still working for him? Well, I think that was what made this interesting because as as he say, immigration has sort of fallen down the list of priorities of concerns of Americans over particularly the last year of course for. Obvious. Reasons the economy taking taking center stage. This sort of exchange between Biden and trump was very interesting for that because it brought it back into the four reminded people perhaps of other things that have happened in Donald Trump's presidency. This clip particularly was about the fact that there are still some five hundred children that have not been able to find their parents. After having been separated at the border. So this was a very frank conversation, a challenge to Donald Trump to talk about his policy, but it was also something that he seemed unapologetic about quite happy to have this discussion because I think as you say, immigration is a topic that launched his campaign. It's been an important topic. He argues that he got the border. Under, control he did also make an interesting common that people could still come legally which I found somewhat interesting as well because it shows that perhaps even he is recognizing you know in many ways this debate, he was a little bit softer and less inflammatory in his rhetoric. Then he has been in the past he did though have also a bizarre. Remark a bit talking just about the children of the border saying, well, they're in very good conditions. They're they're in clean rooms So there's some strange. They're definitely some strange remarks within this but yes, I encourage people to listen to the immigration exchange. Well, this is what Joe Biden had to say on the same subject he's five hundred plus kids came with parents. They separated them at the border to make a disincentive to come to begin with. Bay Real. Tough. We're really strong and guess what they cannot not coyotes didn't bring them over their parents were with them they got separated from their parents. And it makes us a laughing stock in violates every notion of who we are as a nation. Tony swear eleven days out from polling date. Now, obviously, as we know, tens of millions of Americans have voted already, which makes the but the third, slightly less climactic than it may have been in previous years but they're all too contrasting visions. The candidates were trying to pitch here I mean Joe Biden to appropriate the talking point of Value Republican president is is clearly pitching the kinder gentler nation isn't he? He is absolutely and I think. They're actually was as Chris mentioned part of a section where Joe Biden really was really very well, he was interrupted a few times by Dominic shrimp, but he really kept his own and he really came across incredibly forcibly about sort of how opponent idea in principle separating telling children away from patterns at the border really is I that does plays and you say into his this idea that's. Donald. Trump is this sort of aloof man who lives in his own bubble whereas Joe Biden someone and he kept making this point over and over again he kept saying that I don't care if you vote for me if you don't vote for me blue states red state. That's not how I see the United States and I think that was quite effective. Donald trump didn't really seem to. Be He did soften lots of elements of his answers on some topics Chris alluded to but he wasn't really I'd be surprised if legions of new voters now come into Donald Trump's because of his performance last might think we've with Joe. Biden. He did paint nuanced detailed picture of of kind of this person of empathy and in the sort of different nuances in ways that that unfolds through him. And through his agenda for president so I think as you say, the fact that so many people this record number of people have voted or ready that probably does take the steam out a little bit of just how consequentialist debate was last night when we talk because he did at the start about needles moving and and big sort of campaign bombshells happening this late stage I'm not sure. It would have had affect last night, Thomas Lowest Chris show Mac. Thank you both very much for joining us.
Takeaways from last night's presidential debate
"Two for the presidential candidates. Correspondent Natalie Brand is in Nashville. The final presidential debate of 2020 started off with the Corona virus We're learning to live with people were learning to die with him. As the virus has killed more than 220,000 Americans. Former vice President Joe Biden has made the pandemic the central focus. Of his campaign against President Trump. Anyone who's responsible for that many deaths should not remain as president of the United States of America. We closed up the greatest economy in the world in order to fight This horrible disease they came from China. Later, the candidates clashed over health care when I'm going to do is pass Obamacare with a public option. Become Biden. I'd like to terminate Obama care come up with a brand new, beautiful healthcare, CBS news political analyst Leonard Steinhorn is take away. This was a more civil debate, but it was still contentious. It was a more substantive debate, but they still talked around too many issues. Bottom line is this each wanted to make their closing arguments about themselves and their opponents. NBC's Kristen Welker is getting praise on social media for giving a masterclass in moderating. Also getting ups. The mic muting the
What was said in the Trump-Biden debate last night?
"Let's talk about what went down last night. Akilah quick first impression here. All right. So I was prepared for this debate to be just as annoying as the first one and generally speaking I don't think it was it was quieter and less interrupt. The mute button function was good for the majority of the first answers to the moderator's questions. By the end although senseless non sequiturs started creeping back in also say that the moderator last night Kristen Welker was way better like so far ahead of Chris Wallace several weeks ago you know she kept the candidates on topic she forged ahead with better more relevant questions whenever trump threatened to devolve into conspiracy theories and generally speaking she seemed comfortable being there. So that was the VIBE. But Gideon, let's talk about what trump did last night how would you describe what he had to say? Yeah I definitely agree that it was more toned-down but on the substance I, think trump still acts enlarge part like he's running into. Kept, trying to cast his opponent as a career politician and one who was corrupt he brought up that hunter suffer example, but it didn't quite and it was a little bit hard to follow, and that strategy allows him to evade questions about his own term as well as his vision for the future he failed for instance, offer coherent message on the biggest crisis of his presidency covert nineteen and he at times tried to make the Democratic ticket seem more to the left than it is trump. Seems to always have Bernie Sanders on the brain and several times. He came back to the same point about Biden being a longtime politician who hasn't gotten anything done. But there was at least one specific moment where the strategy failed and he pretty remarkable way by turn to the camera and said, the debate should be about the families of people watching and not what the two candidates were talking about and trump kind of fell into a trap with a terrible answer. Here's a clip of that. This isn't about there's a reason why he's. been up all this Malarkey. There's a reason for he doesn't WanNa talk about the the the substantive issues it's not about his family and my family it's about your family and your family's hurting badly if you're making less than if you're a middle class family, you're getting hurt badly right now you're sitting at the kitchen table this morning to decide what we can't get new tires their ball because we have. To wait another month or so or are we going to be able to pay the mortgage who's going to tell her? She can't go back to to community college there the decision making in the middle class families like I grew up in. Scranton claim they're in trouble we should be talking about your families but that's a last thing he wants to talk about I wanted to say I wanted to tell. Me What is it? Ten seconds Mr President go political stupid. Let's get off this China thing and then he looks the family around the table everything just a typical politician I see that's. Difficult politician. That's why I got elected that. Let's get off the subject of China let's talk around sitting around the table. Right come on Joe you. Okay. So if we're following the logic here, trump is coming off as saying I'm not a typical politician I don't care about your family. Almost. Literally, what he's getting at that moment along with one word trump backed away from raising the federal minimum wage were really out of sync with what's going on in the country among working families. So a Gila, what did you make of trump last night? So I mean personally, I'm not giving US seventy four year old man props for not screaming like an infant during a debate like he's been here long enough he I don't know how to act by now. But in terms of the content of his answers, there wasn't really much worth talking about like. You said trump didn't really WANNA talk about his record at all at one point. He did say that he takes responsibility for covert but then he immediately pivoted to the same old static about how everything is China's fault and other points he blamed. Democratic. Governors and criticized overall continued to downplay the virus saying that schools and businesses should fully reopen but he revealed no plan to deal with the spikes and infections. In fact, he claim that there is a vaccine that's ready and we'll be deployed in a few weeks wad squad we know

"But what was also odd to me? I mean, we've seen this before where punter has got to go do some fan -solutely. You never see a putter a punters got a good foot. That means they've got good flexibility in the leg up and they're used to kicking a ball. I forget the name that putter for the Seahawks yesterday. He couldn't I mean, he couldn't hit the side of a barn was warming up. That's odd. You know? So even a short one looked like it was not reliable. Here's the the wonderful thing about being coached by someone like Bill Belichick is you realize when you're a head coach you have to make sure you shine a light on everything. Whatever your weakness is you need to have the ability to say, okay, we have a problem. Now, we need to fix it. Or we need to keep that so far away from the light of day that it never happened. Right. But when you have a situation like that that can happen to any team and has for the patriots. And I spent my first three years there who. Was the backup kicker west Welker. Wes Welker was taker. And you would know this if you're watching closely especially during the preseason. But sometimes when it was an absolute rout valid check would send welcome with the field goal. Squatter the extra point squad and he'd give him a shot in game situation. He wanted to make sure that if it ever were to happen. Where Stephen Gostkowski went down for us that there was a plan b it is just it is and look Parcells was the coach that sort of groomed. Ballot. Check Carol to there was a plan b if they got the ball, I can promise you that. I have no idea who well beautifully now. Obviously that's back in the day before the plan could be well, let's just go for to. All right right now, you can do that bad. That's why I'm asking if you're down too late. Range. Are you throwing a hail Mary? Are you giving us a shot calling in the fat? We are exactly who knows sign and Orrin burger at halftime doing. So anyway, that was fun. All right chargers are gonna have the ball and the two minute drill. We'll see how aggressive. They get up nine to nothing as we approach. Halftime. We'll get into the Indy. Houston game a little bit. And also continue to get you ready for later on this.
