"Woodward, The Washington Post associate editor, taped interviews of the president for his new book in a February 7th call the president describes the virus is being passed through the air and deadlier than the seasonal flu. So this's deadly stuff. Joe Biden seizing on this during a campaign event in Michigan, he knew how deadly it was. It was much more deadly than the flu. He knew and purposely played it down. Worse, he lied to the American people. White House spokeswoman Kayleigh Mcenany denies that the president has never lied to the American public on covert. The president's been very president was expressing calm and his actions reflect that. And the president himself just talking about this moments ago, saying that he has acted in ways that sought to reduce any potential panic. Over the pandemic at a Senate hearing.

Feds clash with Portland protesters again
"Now we all know that Donald trump has a thing for dictators and each time he praises leaders men who he has called. Good friends trump exposed and apparent autocratic envied that foreshadowed what we are seeing happening right now in Portland, Oregon we're on Friday thousands of protesters, including the wall of MOMS and a wall of. Of veterans standing in solidarity with black lives matter we're met by federal agents who fired pepper balls and deployed tear gas to disperse the crowds for two weeks now federal officers wearing military style, camouflage and helmets have been patrolling Portland with batons and tear-gas, driving around in unmarked vehicles, sweeping up and detaining protesters in a way that Oregon's own attorney general says resembles abductions. This ladies and gentlemen is trump's secret police. Federal agents igniting chaos in the city led by a democratic mayor who was also tear-gas by US agents this week. According to trump, he's simply trying to quell unrest. In other words, he is clinging to the image of the law and order president as his approval ratings continued tank borrowing from the playbook of the dictators. He's so admires. will go into all of the city's Eddie of the cities we're ready will put in fifty thousand and sixty thousand people that really know what they're doing. Then they're strong tough, and we could solve these problems so fast. Joining me now is in Applebaum staff writer at the Atlantic and author of twilight of Democracy Renee, Graham columnist and associate editor at the Boston Globe. Sarah Kinzir scholar, authoritarian states, and all of hiding in plain sites and Philip he goes of the center for Policing Equity Thank you guys for joining me and I'm going to start with you. We are living in a world where secret police are detaining protesters without probable. So. If you look out on the nation, you will note across the chasm a lot of steering thing we try to tell you and you really touch on some interesting things in your piece in the Atlantic I loved it and you say that Donald Trump's authoritarianism is a form of politics that reached new heights. And you compare this what we're seeing in the landscape to Russia explain that to me. So. Thanks I think the important thing to understand about what trump is doing is that these are not tactics designed to solve the problem? Why is he sending customs and Border Patrol Coastguard Tsa. Officers into American cities these are people who don't have training and riot control who aren't used to dealing with political protests, and whose main goal seems to be to create more chaos. Of course, this isn't full on dictatorship. Resting the mayor or conducting mass arrests are putting thousands of people in jail for what he is doing is creating pictures. That are designed to show other Americans. How tough he is! So the fact that these men are wearing men and women maybe are wearing camouflage. They look heavily armed. They're wearing. Face Masks this is designed to show and kind of act out dominance. Look were pushing back against the liberal America the. Urban America the chaotic in America that. You're all afraid of and this is how we're going to win the argument. This way of using troops and using photographs of violence is something that we have seen in other authoritarian states. particularly in Russia where. Putin in twenty, thousand fourteen. Used pictures of violence to imply that the democracy movement in Ukraine was really some kind of Nazi fascist uprising, and that he was then putting it. Is, this is a tactic. We've seen US in other parts of the world, and we've already seen the photographs and footage of this be used in campaign. So that really punctuates your Article Philip. I want to turn to you because one thing that concerns me about. This is the experience that black and Brown people have when we encounter police so attorney general bill bar has said that in these new cities that the police officers are going to be clearly identifiable. I don't know that that makes it better. Considering that when black people encounter police there three times more likely to be killed in Chicago there six times more likely to be killed whether you make this. Yeah amp put it exactly right. These are not here. These troops are not here to make anything better. They're set up. In camouflage, which by the way they're not blending into any urban environment with those uniforms. To make the folks who are protesting who had been almost entirely peaceful important up until this point. Make them fear that there's going to be some kind of forceful, physical violent, a reaction to their peaceful expression of their rights and the thing I want to understand is this is over the objection, not only of the mayor of the US Attorney Attorney General the governor of local law enforcement as local law enforcement has been trying for the last seven eight to figure out how dare legitimacy at trust of New York, and this is explicitly not helping
House Speaker Pelosi to unveil coronavirus aid package for workers
"House speaker. Nancy Pelosi is expected to unveil legislation tomorrow aimed at helping workers who may be at financial risk because of the grow virus outbreak. Nbc News reports. The House will likely pass that bill as for the impact. This crisis is having on our daily lives. There are new developments almost hourly the NC Double A. announced March madness will go on at all venues but without fans in the arenas Seattle public schools will close for a minimum of two weeks beginning tomorrow. Tomorrow is also when the containment zone in the New York City. Suburb of new Rochelle. Officially begins officials. Say They hope that will control the spread of the corona virus in what has become the largest cluster of illness in the United States? So far here for our leadoff discussion on a Wednesday night. Anita Kumar White House correspondent and associate editor for Politico Robert Costa National Political reporter for the Washington Post and moderator of Washington. Week on PBS. And we welcome to the broadcast Austin Goolsbee former chairman of the Council of Economic Advisers for President Obama and a professor of economics at the University of Chicago. Welcome to all of you. Anita the president made a number of announcements this evening He did not declare a state of emergency. I do want to remind our viewers. There is a state of emergency that continues to be in effect in America because of the border the southern border. But that's not. As far as the president's gone he also suggested earlier. Today that jared Kushner is is sort of in charge of this and he's studying it more right while the president is expected in the next few days even perhaps next week to declare this emergency of very limited emergency that would basically free up. Forty billion dollars that is sitting there that The government has sitting there for disaster relief so he wants to free up some of that money and and the thinking here is that he wants to go ahead and act quickly He he was on the hill yesterday on Capitol Hill and he didn't hear from Republicans or Democrats Anything that would make him believe that they were going to quickly accept some of his ideas for economic relief and he wanted to bypass them and really just get some funds freed up so he could go ahead and do that Robert. You were reporting this evening about the fact that the president had a bit of a shouting match with his treasury secretary about the measures that the Fed and others have taken. This is his fed chief. Jay Powell who he put into place. Apparently he's very very frustrated with the Fed and things more can be done. He is unhappy with the Federal Reserve Chairman Pal on Monday afternoon while the president was in the Oval Office meeting with top advisers including treasury secretary. Mnuchin he lashed out about pal saying to the Treasury Secretary. You need to try to get him to lower rates if at all possible to try to see if you can have a conversation with him to stimulate the economy. The president knows he's being stymied on Capitol Hill about his payroll tax cut and just a couple of minutes ago house. Democrats formerly released publicly released. Their virus relief. Bill just have been reading it over for the past. Couple of minutes includes paid sick. Leave Food Security It also includes free testing unemployment benefits. You see Speaker Pelosi tonight. A after the president's speech trying to take the lead on the legislative answer to all of this Austin the stock market the Dow was down another fourteen hundred and some odd points. Today we're now off twenty percent from recent highs which puts the Dow into the bear a bear market. The five hundred is not far behind. The president has a what one might say unhealthy preoccupation with both the stock market and interest rates. What do you make of this though? Because the market is responding even after the president's announcement market futures were were lower. What do you make of what has to be done from from the perspective of the government whether it's a stimulus or what? The House is proposing. Well you know I think two things. The first is as we've spoken many times. Vulgar used to tell me over and over and the financial crisis that when crisis hits the only asset you have is your credibility and I think when you see the stock market plunging. The way did today the way it did this evening. It is a judgment about the credibility of the White House that we've had the president of the United States going out and saying people are finding that when they get sick they can still go to work. We only have fourteen cases and pretty soon. That's going to go down to zero when the president himself says that and when people cannot be tested no amount of stimulus is going to be sufficient because the reason that the economy is going into this tailspin because people are afraid and they are withdrawing from the economy and if you gave them a thousand dollar payroll tax cut. They're not going to spend it because the root of the problem when you get into a virus situation is that the greatest economic stimulus comes from slowing the rate of spread of the virus. And we've seen South Korea's succeed at it by having extensive testing and by finding the people who are sick and saying look. Don't go visit your grandma and stay isolated. For fourteen days. They've been able to slow the spread of the virus and their economy is gonNA come rebounding in a rapid basis the longer. We pretend that there aren't cases here and try to blame it on Europe and say. Oh we're going to block cargo boxes from Europe and that's GonNa help us without doing the testing the the more fear is going to be generated in people's minds and the worst the economy's GonNa get Robert this whole issue credibility this. This thing has developed very quickly. I want to just go back to starting really the last week of February the last couple of days of February when the President I started talking about Corona virus compared to what he said tonight. Let's listen together. We're finding very little problem very little pro now. You treat this like a flu. This is the most aggressive and comprehensive effort to confront a foreign virus in modern history. It's going to disappear one day. It's like a miracle it will disappear. We will be suspending all travel from Europe to the United States. For the next thirty days we have thousands or hundreds of thousands of people that get better just by sitting around even going to work. Go to work. If you're sick or not feeling well stay home. Democrats are politicizing the corona virus. This is new hoax. We must put politics aside. Stop the partisanship and unify together. As One Nation Robert this becomes a complicated call to arms for the president because he has been the one saying that the Democrats are politicizing. He and Fox News talking about the media blowing this out of proportion and now the president has got to step up there and do something that is unusual Primetime Oval Office address saying let's come together and take greater action to solve this and there are real world implications for so many the leaders around the country outside of the White House who are dealing with this in an interview. This week with Maryland governor Larry Hogan Republican. He told me that he's deeply concerned about the mixed messages coming out of this administration. He said he had a ninety minute. Meeting with Vice President Pence who said one thing and then he listened to the president who was talking in an entirely different way about the entire crisis. And that's a governor. A sitting governor dealing with cases in his State and when I was on Capitol Hill. There are also expressing concern. Democrats and Republicans about how the president is handling this. There's private concern among some of my top. Gop sources that the president's antennas to attuned to the stock market and his own reelection campaign and Anita in fact the rate cut that the president seemed to be agitating for which occurred last week did not have the desired effect in the market. Nothing the president he's doing is having the desired effect. But at this point you have competing plans the president's plan and then the Republican the Democratic Plan. That's come out who reconciles this. This is not been a White House at a congress. That's managed to come together on many things but at this point is necessary. Who reconciles the fact? That what the president thinks looks like stimulus and success is very different than what Nancy. Pelosi team do right. This is the problem this has been problem on a variety of issues. Obviously we've never been in this place before but on so many policy issues you know the Democrats and sometimes even the Republican Republicans on Capitol Hill can't agree with the White House. And so what happens is they don't do anything. That's not going to be the case this time because everybody believes that something needs to be done. That's why you're seeing the president saying that he's going to act should've unilaterally and then take the you know go ahead with a speech and and call on Congress tact but but you know going back to what Bob said the the president's in this place where he's trying to do two things he's talking about. How this isn't that big of a deal. It's going to go away as you've played but he also has to show that he is doing something tonight. He took a different action showing that he's doing something while he's also trying to downplay parts of it exactly for his reelection and for his popularity. What's going to happen in the future? The trump campaign and some of his allies are very much aware. Now that this is going to probably be the issue that he's going to be judged on in the next few months up until the election Austin during the president's address he said all travel from Europe to the United States will stop not even cargo will go there within correction came out says. Well no cargo is going to go. And then a correction came out to say no. Actually it's just non-americans coming to the United States. I wasn't clear that the virus makes that distinction all that well look this exactly what I mean if the president gets up and says something literally three minutes after he finishes saying it they say no. What he said is not what the policy is. It undermines your credibility the what also undermines the credibility on one hand to say we need a big stimulus and then this afternoon. The secretary of HHS was reached as you know. The president has a plan to cut seven hundred thousand people off of food stamps low income people and they said do you still plan to cut them off of food stamps on April first when those are the very people who are going to be losing their jobs and they say yes they do intend to cut them off of food stamps. So you you've got a we need relief but we're GONNA have a filibuster to hold up paid sick leave for all Americans and I think that I something is going to have to give. They're either going to have to start telling the truth. Doing tests and have a stimulus and an antivirus program or else. They're going to have to just declare. We don't care we all we WANNA do is make. The the problem seems small as possible.
White House impeachment team weighs in on Bolton claims
"In the house impeachment inquiry was beginning the White House claimed it wasn't fair and White House attorney said they would not be cooperating with the impeachment process house judiciary chairman Jerry Nadler had said if the president's team wouldn't participate they couldn't claim the process was unfair then things stop house speaker Nancy Pelosi was holding the articles of impeachment saying the house was waiting to hear about the rules of the Senate trial president trump said let's move this along this is Renee a total sham from the beginning everybody knows it I've never seen in the Republican Party so United we got our last about as you know we got a hundred percent of the vote I believe the Senate is equally as well United now the Senate trial has begun discussions over what is fair still loom Republicans say an offer to let the president's team participating committee presentations of evidence came too late Democrats and the White House is blocking documents in preventing key witnesses from testifying Monday the president tweeted that the house never even asked former national security adviser John Bolton to testify but they didn't they didn't issue a subpoena like they did the Boltons aids trials government government filed a lawsuit to force the question should I listen to the president stay quiet or complied with the subpoena the judge dismissed the suit though when the house withdrew the request and moved forward with formal articles of impeachment so the question has been answered Bolton has since said he would testify in the Senate trial if the peanut Democrats do want to call more witnesses before the Senate Republicans say they should have done that during the house inquiry now though Senate minority leader Chuck Schumer notes there's new information Mister Bolton's book is further evidence that a large number of people for a quote in the loop on this scheme and now they are all covering up part of Bolton's book many script leaked over the weekend after it had been sent to the National Security Council for classified information vetting he says the president quote wanted to continue freezing security assistance to Ukraine until officials there helped with investigations into Democrats including the bidens I'm sorry about the timing AT standard is an associate editor and columnist at real clear politics because everyone was assuming we're speeding toward a conclusion here of the trial at the end of this week without witnesses but in terms of how long it is that the manuscript has been at the administration whether GM but the National Security Council or both and we know or dare and also distributed to a wider circle of top political people as has been the case with books like this in the past was it always the case that Bolton sort of you know hovered over this defense from the president's team and threaten to weaken it yes it was always the case that we knew he had information the investigation and the impeachment in the house had not yet revealed and it was likely to run counter to what the president's lawyers for saying schools in the tourney said that this clearly is a corruption of the NSC review process and Democrats say you know this surely should serve more as a catalyst to to actually hear from witnesses specifically Bolton when you look at sort of the the broad strokes in the big picture of what everyone saying regardless of any motivation does its way things doesn't change anything well it is a first hand hand the cal and in a way that contradicts the the defense that began over the weekend of of the of the president where lawyers came out on Saturday and said there is no evidence anywhere that this was a a quid pro quo on and that the president intended it to be that withholding of security eight so I think the senators on the Republican side are angry not because they think the John Bolton was squarely in the release of his timing and you know perhaps it's connected to his creed overbooked fails but that the White House might have known since December thirtieth that this is an incredibly damaging development and would poke holes in their defense and would make the argument for witnesses had this information been known earlier I I actually saw some defense from some Republican senators of John Bolton many of them are very close to him they believe his truth teller and that he wouldn't be lying in this book do you foresee a court fight I mean I know the court site really only happens if four Republican senators say yes to witnesses so we have to get there first we think that's gonna happen if John Bolton isn't just going to go on sixty minutes or something I mean I I just don't know just on anyways right he's decided in the eleventh hour that his reputation could be tarnished by the fact that he was holding out but now they're rushing the book to publication and body wants to be a patriot and he didn't wanna look redeem he's clearly conflicted so I don't know what exactly his line of thinking as but he has made it clear to us all along he intends to tell us something that we don't yet know and so if he foresees a court battle does he go into an open media setting I know that nothing can stop the house from trying to subpoena him and he could say yes to a subpoena I don't know but the Senate trial if that's gonna get gummed up this building just sit down in interview that that's I think a big alone looming question here now that he has that publication date since Fulton's many scriptures leak Republican senators who previously expressed interest in possibly hearing from witnesses have said this does strengthen the argument Utah senator Mitt Romney said he thinks it is increasingly likely that other Republicans will join those of them who think they should hear from John Bolton Maine senator Susan Collins said the reporting on Fulton strengthens the case for witnesses it would take a least for Republicans joining Democrats in order for witnesses to be called so wise and Berg is former deputy independent counsel in the whitewater investigation it authorizes the calling of witnesses I would have to believe that Bolton would be one of them the real question is what happens after that do the president's lawyers make a motion in the trial to exclude the testimony under executive privilege and if they do what happened to that one I think most of us are curious about the reach of executive privilege and a lot of articles have been written over the weekend like trying to expound on what seems like untested waters to a certain degree we we don't really know how far executive privilege will will apply do we certainly not in the context of impeachment I don't believe there's any precedent certainly not in the federal appellate precedent gusting executive privilege in the context of an impeachment inquiry or an impeachment trial I should say so we're really operating without without a guide book I will say that if you look at history and particularly the accounting period and the and the first few administrations and congresses after the founding period there is some historical support for the notion that it might not executive privilege might not apply at all in the context of an impeachment trial the first is the very first time a president withheld information didn't called executive privilege then but the very first time I believe that a president withheld information from Congress was when I was in a Washington with held certain papers related to the negotiations of the Jay treaty which was very unpopular and he was asked for old papers and he gave the great majority of them but he did not give over certain papers that he felt were too sensitive and he said at the time this would be different if if we were talking about an impeachment inquiry so I think there is certainly a credible argument that executive privilege either would not apply or would be the standards would be much more difficult for successfully invoking executive privilege in the context of an impeachment inquiry or trial school in your legal mind how does not proceed does it depend on if you have a cooperating witness first is not of just how does the justice department pursue a case against somebody who says you know I'm I'm going to ignore your your invocation of executive privilege and I'm going to go ahead and testify or does it work in the reverse if you say to Congress no I'm going to resist your subpoena who's sort of the authority that that will make that determination ambassador Bolton has already said that if subpoenaed he will testify so I think how it would proceed would be the president's lawyers in the impeachment trial if that happened the boat Mississippi that need to testify will make a motion to the she just this thing the president invokes executive privilege and we we do not agree that this man to justice robbers can do one of two things he can make that determination himself number one do even apply a secular privilege here number two if I'm going to apply it how do we waive the interests of the president versus the interest of the Senate and conducting an impeachment trial now this is David keep justice Roberts says I'm gonna let you invoke executive privilege that would be the easiest for the the majority I think in the Senate because they would have to overturn him by majority vote to overrule but let's say the rules you know what executive privilege simply doesn't apply here it's not very strong here and by the way we do I think the president's already waived whatever in is an interesting situation because we can certainly be overruled but I think we have to think about what you're gonna look like at the two cases in the United States has ruled that Fulton have testified even in the face of an invocation of executive privilege by the president but we're gonna overrule the Chief Justice is what you're saying hold truth the reverse occurs in other words if somebody is resistant unlike Bolton to appearing maybe Samick Mulvaney or a secretary Pompeii or somebody like that and Congress you know the senators say you know excuse me you can't ignore our subpoena is due to the senators then take this to court or petition justice Roberts in much the same way that you you save what happens if the White House felt they were trying to get something through well that would certainly let's say the the the Senate subpoenas and Mulvaney to go into court he could he could make his argument first in front of the net at sitting as a court either thing could happen I don't think it would be bold enough to reassert this the notion of absolute immunity again because it is it is the

"Two that last iPhone port you've been hanging on to may not be around for much longer and noted apple analyst has come out with an apple iPhone lineup prediction for twenty twenty and twenty twenty one saying we should have for new models next year followed by a new iPhone without a lightning port in twenty twenty one for more on what this could mean for smart phones and a look back at how we got here we're joined live on the KCBS ring central news line by Eric Savitz the associate editor and tech reporter forbearance thank you for joining us this morning so what does this mean getting rid of all the ports well you know this is this is something that is consistent with the way apple has behaved in the past right so we can go back years and apple removed just drives from their laptops and more recently removed the headphone port from the iPhone and it's all about trying to simplify device make it easier to to design make it easier to use now I think of course that the trade off here right is that people have a lot of has a traditional way of charging the phone at this would require like a separate charge you had it kind of a different approach to how you charge your phone is fascinating if you go back and look at the the drawers to most of us have somewhere with the old charger cables and your card readers and all the other old stuff that it seems like you still need to keep records Sunday you might need it I mean are we in fact headed to a point where there will be no cables of any kind well that's the that's that is the long term place to land I I think that that there's or whatever you do the transition there there's displacement complication right so you said we need new ways charger phone in your car it anyways charter phone in your office and they'll be charging pads everywhere there's already from a use of charging pads and some cars and you can get them in other places and but there will be this period where it's going to be a little more complicated to as we go through the transition but on the other hand you'll have a phone that is center that is later that will have that will be a more appealing to use in some ways and in the same way that people's adapted to not having a headphone Jack in the current generation let me follow up on that one though because you're so many people out for example people get aboard an airplane they realize Hey these earpods are not going to work with the airplanes system yeah I don't have a plug the plugin yeah that's true I've experienced that problem myself but I think one of the things for assisting and and and in airplanes right is going away from a set a set that I see back that entertainment system to one where you're using your own device in which case you can wire I use Bluetooth headphones are your is err err pod so your other what if your favorite shot wireless headphones or airports are and connect that way so I I think that's again that's a transitional technology issue that's kind of irritating when you experience on the plan but that's going to change too well other than what Stan mentioned with the earpods at this all sounds like it's going to be so much more convenient are there any other disadvantages that you see losing the chords and the plugs and everything else that goes along with it well I think there is going to be this transition period where you'll find yourself in places where you're not sure how you're going to charge your device right so now it's pretty easy you carry around a plug you have to find an outlet plug in the outlet you need to buy a new one and they're relatively easy to find I think there's going to be a period when he's charging pads to required to wirelessly charge your devices we will hurt her feelings and you'll have to have a little more strategy around making sure that you you always have access to one and that there will be some your cation with that until it
#PayUpHollywood Attempting To Change Pay And Working Conditions For Entertainment Industry Assistants
"Assistance in the entertainment industry are overworked underpaid and and often have to run personal errands for their bosses even after they leave for the day. That's according to a new survey of more than fifteen hundred assistance. It was released this this week by the grassroots movement called pay up Hollywood. The campaign started as a twitter Hashtag back in October and has been gaining momentum since then Katie kilkenny is an associate editor at the Hollywood reporter where she covers labor and she explains how the Hashtag grew out of an episode of script notes. A podcast asked about screenwriting. A assistant wrote in saying you know I think one of the big issues. That's going to be coming forward in the next few decades in Hollywood is that we're gonna I have to talk about the low pay. That assistance are facing in how that is related to rising cost of living in Los Angeles and from near the hosts which cacus Craig Mason. Who are both really powerful writers in Hollywood? Read that note and ask for more people to talk about their stories of being an assistant in Los Angeles they just got an overwhelming matic. Email and a writer named Alber who is on the board at the Writers Guild of America started Hashtag called Hashtag Champ. Hollywood so a couple of days before Thanksgiving script notes facilitated a pay up Hollywood town hall where assistance had a chance to talk about some of the issues. And here's what one woman who didn't provide. Her name had to say about burnout. We almost have like three jobs at once. Like not only. Are we working our day. The job for forty to sixty hours a week and not making enough and then therefore doing work on the side like babysitting driving etc but we also have the work of our own careers. I and I think that is what leads that burnout. Because we're not only expected to have this day job that puts all these things in place for us to move forward and then on top of that we're expected to have like an hour to write a day or or to fund their own short films and make them on the weekends like that is just like impossible. I think impossible's inaccurate word word for what she's describing. What some of the other issues that came up around the Hashtag and around the town hall so I think a big one is the question of access? Hollywood has been talking talking a lot about its diversity issues wanting to get more folks into the pipeline of diverse backgrounds. But what we're looking at. Here's the situation where you have to to be able to afford to be an assistant in the first place to get that first leg up in the industry and so Paige Hollywood has just released a survey of one thousand thousand five hundred fifty one assistance and they found that seventy percent of the people who were surveyed were white and that fifty two percent were receiving financial -sential aid from family and friends to make ends meet as they were assistance in Hollywood. So I think we're seeing that this industry in order to diversify does have to become more accessible or economically manically accessible to folks who aren't coming in with with that aid so that to me was notable as well as the fact that a lot of assistance were also talking thing about this sort of demeaning conditions that were expected of them. Hollywood has pay your dues culture and I think a lot of folks remember at its in difficult conditions when they or assistance and so sort of expect. There is a lot to go through that as well. But in the survey it showed that one hundred and four respondents had an object thrown at them in the workplace. So I think that we're looking at conditions assistance or not only being pretty badly paid but also they are facing conditions that are pretty rough. We're talking with Katie kilkenny at the Hollywood reporter about pay up. Hollywood there are other things that really jumped out to me. One is that almost ninety three percent of those. The people surveyed said they work more than forty hours a week and fifteen percent said they were working more than sixty hours a week and hero's something that was really troubling. Almost almost a quarter said that they had reported an increase in substance abuse. So it sounds like the job is really taking a terrible terrible toll on the people who are in this line of work completely. I mean I think these numbers sort of show something that assistance have been talking to each other about for a long time and so I think for a lot of this is not a surprise but this survey really shines a light on some of these issues and the fact that things need to change and it sounds like some show runners are actually saying this is unsustainable and maybe even immoral absolutely so I talked to a few folks. We'd been vocal on twitter with their support and basically found out talking to them that they were advocating for higher wages on projects that they're currently developing and these are Adam conifer who Folks might know true. TV's Adam Ruins everything. David H Steinberg. who was a CO show runner? Netflix is no good nick. And the writer producer producer Creator Ayelet Waldman who was an executive producer on Netflix. Unbelievable Waldman in particular told me that she was trying to get her assistance twenty dollars an hour plus benefits and hover was saying that he was trying to just various aspects of the job to make it more. Tenable you said in your story Lori that you had reached out to the major studios and talent agencies for comment and let's just say they weren't flooding the phone lines calling back. have any of them. Had anything anything to say. One Agency is doing something and they didn't provide comment for the story. But you know I heard via sources that for which is the talent agency that represents spoke John August who helped movement as well as Liz Alpert who coined. The HASHTAG has conducted in anonymous pace survey of their assistance. And and I will also be receiving and looking at the results of the pay up Hollywood survey and I imagine that in weeks to come others will speak up more but for now they our remaining mum and even if the hours are horrible. The working conditions aren't great. A lot of people want these jobs right because it's so hard hard to get into the business and this is one possible path for people who want to become creative people in Hollywood definitely. They're extremely competitive jobs and often a line that is used with assistance to speak up about work. Conditions is that you know there were thousands. That will take place but it's gotten to the point where the wages are the same as they were twenty years ago in some cases That's what we're hearing from. These stories while the cost of living in Los Angeles has skyrocketed. And so these assistance missiles argument is that the situation is untenable at the slain.

"Rothman is an associate editor of commentary, but he is the author of unjust, social Justice and the unmaking of American. That's why after Monterey no one. I are open but unjustice first book, and I think done one hundred tweets about unjust, Noah Rochman, welcome. Good morning to you. Thank you so much. Old. I you know, you can't pay for that kind of kind of endorsement and deep insight into the book. I really appreciate you could try and pay me. I mean, I would be okay now, I actually I was on vacation, and I was reading unjust. And I just kept quoting it because it is a it's just a fantastic exploration of the identity and left and the right. And so I stopped Margie Rosh. I was at the national religious broadcasters. Margie is the president of which published it then I stopped. The owner. President Xi of Salem said unjust are sleeper unjust as the best book. I've read in a long time on Justice. Gotta get more advertising. More traction. How's the book doing well? Really? Well. Nobody really knew about it did very well. And you know, we got intention from places that you didn't think you would like MSNBC where I'm a contributor, obviously. But a lot of people in the network wanted to talk about it Bill Maher and win around the country and talked about it. You know, we was expected to be a quick quick of a book, and it had some longevity to it. So that more than I could have ever Margie said, it's got legs. And that means we wanna grow him. I love it. When you go out. You're one of the two people that go into missionary work at MSNBC along with me. And you do morning Joe, which I can't do because I'm on the radio. But I'm always love looking up and seeing you there and debating Eddie, let me get to the book unjust. I want to read from page ninety two perhaps the best description of the identity activists class ethos is collected antipathy to fortune and the fortunate gut that's not a very lofty eat those perhaps, but it is not without philosophical idiological, precedence Rousseau. I would argue a variety of philosophers and theoreticians throughout history dedicated their careers to polishing envy and class. Consciousness until they shine. With a bogus academic luster five check marks two lines. That's my highest in my own little weird. Side notes that paragraph is everything though. Thank you very much. Yes. So there isn't Roca philosophical foundations social Justice that has historical origins. Dating back to the mid nineteenth century, a religious concept, but most academics would consider social Justice role in modern social Justice advocates really have no use for roles. They're much more attracted to a school of philosophical thought. That regard luck and fortune with great hostility. And there is a substantial donation of academic work there to in the basics of sound nation efforts to level societies over the course of history when you start regarding luck and fortune with the sort of disdain in how silly and you get to the effort to level societies which usually manifest downward social level opposed to creating positive opportunities for people who deserve them as individuals. And then you start people not as people, but it's collective classes and tribes avatars roots. And that's. When you do some really terrible things to people need to humanize, and that is ongoing every I gotta warn, you know, we have steel at run Pittsburgh. Right. So you just said Rawls they're trying to think you mispronounced rails. And so we we got full down. We'd say professor roles. We're talking about social Justice while you're blindly put into a state without knowing you create the rules for the state, and then you're put into it. And it's it's a Justice driven theory. It's interesting but on page, forty four you, right? The United States is not a broken society in which the Justice system has become an instrument of indicative unrepresentative government, any assertion to the contrary is a fairytale invented by activists looking to justify their radical program as a moral imperative we know that to be true Noah, but the pushback against you on this particular point, I think has been extreme because it threatens the entire reason for being for the identity and left. Yeah. Make this it's overly academic. It's really really not very much fun exploration of that. I think is pretty silly. And for the most part, but it did go into sort of the academic literature about extrajudicial parallel tracks for Justice, which is what social Justice advocate. They think that the Justice system constructed in America. Unjust because it cannot adjudicate claims to their satisfaction define them to narrowly impose conditions on people that are traumatic heading to confront your accuser court thing, like the constitution or just too much for the social Justice advocate. There are situations where you would need these extrajudicial flora, mostly post conflict societies or post, a revolutionary society and the United States is no such society. It's just not. But that is the conceit that social Justice advocates believe they believe that the of the that arise forever prejudice, racial prejudice. Gender-discrimination? What have you are ongoing indefinite permanent such that you can't have the kind of Justice that you seek in a courtroom, individualize, objective Justice, it must we must more subjective and much more collective and like you said, it's a compete. It's tribunal, Liz. I mean, it is a a threat to the rule of law and this rule of law show. And I spent a lot of time telling people why Mukasey tissue listed why we wanted to be. That way. But it is also a fun book and unjust by you know, the lunch rule Noah. The lunch told me by Frank lunch, and any radio interview, you've got to repeat the term the title of the book unjust at least seven times. And so we've said unjust five times. Now, the by saying just just twice more actually once more than unjust will meet the lunch rule, and the wants role is if you want someone to remember the title of a book, you've got to say it seven times in a radio interview four or five times in television, interviews, fine radio interview. They showed the book, and they can see it. But went on a radio interview that got a here unjust. Here's the fun part. You also take on the alright, and I'm glad you do the all right is a funhouse mirror reflection. I've identity and movements on the left from the darkest corner of the rights online haunts to the Ivy covered halls of academia language that the humanizes political adversaries to picking them as one dimensional creatures of singularly malevolent intent is rampant. It is inevitable that that kind of incitement will yield violence, so a pox on both their houses is in unjust. And it's long overdue. No rodman. Very much reflections of one another because they believe the same thing. They have that this movement has adopted and idea of itself as being a victim classes being oppressed by ill defined unseen forces. That are nevertheless that they must appeal to strong hands to restore that which is do. And that's the tracks of Justice in the system are fundamentally arrayed against them that Eliezer rate against them in a way that requires a sort of evil along revolutionary line, the nurse philosophical background says what they believe is hostile towards democratic for hostile towards the Representative governments that we have developed in this country, the leaves which morning, Eric Socratic sort of sort of belief structure, and and the extent to which these the they speak the same language that use different vocabulary was such that couldn't really overlook it. I mean. I'm glad you did a lot of. Both as a lot of people including me to beginning. Didn't quite know. What? All right meant Ben Shapiro being part of the right because I thought he was edgy and Kirch leaker when they're both friends of mine. But I said because all right and Ben come down on me like a ton of bricks. And so I got I quick education. Not all right. I was thinking. Okay. Edgier more combative conservative. No, it's actually much more nefarious than that. And I wanna go make sure they read from page to five because this is the underlying fundamental truth of unjust come talking with its author. Noah Rothman, those who engaged in violence in two thousand sixteen in two thousand seventeen by the way, that would be on the left and the right we're born in the most fortunate period in the safest and most stable country mankind's ever known they were born into stability and relative prosperity, regardless of their personal circumstances, unless they have migrated from for most of never known organized state-supported political tear, but they have never lies romanticized political violence and to some extent welcomed at now, I read that income. Boda Noah where the commuter ruse forty five years after the fact that fifty years after the fact have left behind decimated country where ideology murdered everyone over forty or fifty everyone wore glasses, everyone who had a college degree in this spasm of Stoep in violence that the all right, and the identity and left seemed to glamorize. Yeah. It's still perverse. Hear them talk about this sort of stuff like it's romantic political violence, and you can just that up to just, you know, being bored and comfortable and an educated perhaps. But what's most is heartening that these fringe movements, and the are French aren't being just just just denounced by the center in this country by the responsible relevant both parties there rather they're being welcomed, or at least Hala rated, and it's stream leading to see these kind of movements that are again, inviting violence, welcoming violence and sometimes practicing in the streets at least talking about it. As though it's a useful political tool in the tool shed, they should be summarily dismissed, but these parties don't seem to have any tools to do that sort of thing. So in the last chapter with me through this book, and you think that this is a problem dressing. I do provide the mechanisms that I hope both parties will appeal to in order to marginalized and stigmatized. Ideas. Maybe not the people who believe in them that certainly their idea. I think someone who's been doing that has been SAS, and I really applaud him on it the bell curve of ideology. America does have a farthest one percent left, and right, and they are outside of the mainstream, and they have to be now I pushed Hillary Clinton when she was on last year. How many white supremacist do you think they are she with less than two hundred thousand? All right. We just did some Matt how many social Justice warriors are genuinely. Sort of crazed and violence oriented in your opinion. Noah rothman. I don't think I could quantify it. But it certainly around that number. It's very small very small, and is is that they're very attractive too much larger much more influential and we can monetize their Craig. I I've seen the antifa in Portland video one hundred times longer watch them because I don't need to see mindless violence on the left or the right period. I think people should not post that stuff because it gives them a sense of satisfaction and accomplishment when they haven't actually satisfied or -ccomplish anything. No last question unjust, social Justice in the unmaking of America. Big first book. What's next? I'm actually working on a second pitch right now, which I very rudimentary idea. But it is about essentially the morality of the marketplace. Now, the marketplaces the most moral the most moral institution that has ever been created for interesting. The kind of problems that Democrats and liberals believe needs to be addressed the prominent inequality of poverty, the environment and the marketplace of ideas, stigmatizing ideas that are intolerable desire over every alternative. They've created. These problems has failed everything. Well, that sounds good. But spend more time promoting on Josh social Justice in the unmaking of America. Yeah. We're going to sell sell sell and come back on here. And just talk it going on MSNBC keep debating, Eddie. You gotta go out in the country on a tour because it's a great conversation. But as a great book, congratulations on it. No Rodman, and everyone I sent it out again on Twitter. All you have to do is remember unjust and go to Amazon and find no Rodman. Thank you know, America to. Hold up. My relief factor dot.

"Associate editor at the Washington Post and author of separate the story of plus the Ferguson and America's journey from slavery. Segregation, Steve welcome to. Thanks, bob. Glad to be here. The term separate but equal never actually appeared in the decision. But the case and your book hinge on that idea because in Louisiana as would be the case throughout the south as Jim crow evolved, railroads were permitted to divide the races in separate cars. And this is the reaction in part to reconstruction. And the three reconstruction amendments that expand equal rights provide citizenship for blacks ensure equal protection voting rights. There's a resistance to that among whites in the south who've lost political power lost economic power separate, but equal does not appear in decision as you. You pointed out it does appear in the descent, but it becomes the phrase that the supreme court uses in nineteen fifty four in the Brown decision. And that's how we regard the shorthand today to the particulars of the case. The plaintiff Homer Plessey wasn't some random victim of segregation. Like, Rosa Parks, nearly a century later. He was handpicked for the role and the circumstances were engineered for an arrest. Well, they were trying to create the Plessey team down in New Orleans, which is where the case comes from it isn't unusual city every shade of the spectrum under the sun is there and the group that brings it as a group of mixed race French-Speaking often Creoles that means native born frustrated after more than a century of trying to get their rights. Most of them have never been enslaved. Their parents were enslaved their grandparents were enslaved, and they feel that their best argument is to throw some confusion at the court in part. Plus is. Fair skinned enough to pass for white or to cause that confusion. And so they want to be able to argue that the laws that enforceable. It doesn't define white. It doesn't define mixed race. And so therefore, how can you possibly enforce this law when many people riding the trains in Louisiana are of indeterminate race the case. Was the culmination of decades of activism legislation. The first of those cases is in eighteen forty one in Massachusetts when a slightly built black New York abolitionist named David Ruggles. Decides to bring assault charge against the conductor who tries to separate him at a Massachusetts railroad he loses, but he establishes a very important principle, which is that we can go into court to pursue grievances. Eighteen ninety two they know they're probably going to lose. And yet this is a group of fighters, and they're not going to sit by and take it without bringing in their case. Well, there's no need to withhold the ending of this story that decision was catastrophic for blacks in American society as a whole an utter repudiation of civil rights and an assault on the basic humanity of African Americans and opening the door to other statutes other states an acting separate. Nation laws to separate waiting rooms separate bathrooms separate water, fountains. All of this was intimidated by the only the center in the case, John Marshall Harlan of Kentucky southerner from a slaveholding family. And he says this is what's going to happen. He doesn't predict those specific conditions. But he does talk about separate juries or separate courthouses. And he says this day will one day be regarded as shameful as dread, Scott. That's the ruling before the civil war that blacks free or not could not be citizens. Now, this was the nineteenth century newspapers were wholly aligned and allied with political parties, the Whigs the know nothings, the Democrats, the Republicans the by the way, the Democrats and Republicans kind of flip flop from how we know them today the legality of slavery the path toward the terms of reconstruction. They were all litigated by a highly partisan press. No, absolutely. That's why you have newspapers remaining today that are called the Springfield Republican or the Arkansas democrat where they began as alliances with political parties, and nobody thought that was very unusual reporting in the early part of the century and through probably eighteen eighty or ninety was almost non-existent. It was frustrating for me as a researcher to be reading these newspaper accounts. And they have a lot of opinions and hot air. But they don't have a lot of facts a prefect society wasn't fake news. It was pre- news faction. No facts. It is shocking. How vital appreciative how nakedly racist? The democratic press was particularly in the south well white superiority as opposed to white supremacy, which is also a part of this century is rampant than they reflected that in their newspaper articles in their letters in their conversation. White supremacy does come out of the loss of economic and political power after the civil war which gives rise to the fear and anger that creates the klu Klux Klan in eighteen sixty seven in Tennessee in that it spreads to the other in southern states and violence underpins this era from the eighteen seventies all the way through the mid twentieth century where lynching becomes a way to settle issues that the whites feel that they've lost the political power in the economic power and the press reflects that to read the book because it focuses on. On contemporaneous coverage. You would think that race was like the number one trending story for sixty years. But after all of this foment, you know to say, the very least by the time the ruling came in on Plessey, the press was kind of a wall. The coverage of the decision that would have such brutal ramifications for the site. It was barely even mentioned was it just race fatigue. Well, they're talking about the white press. Remember, you use the term mainstream before the white press saw this as an expected decision winter Jay the lawyer for Plessey showed up from western New York in Washington to give the oral argument, the Washington Post, my newspaper covered it with a column called capital chat in which they said that Jay who had written a novel called a fool's errand about reconstruction south was another fool's errand by trying to litigate this case that everybody knew was going to end with the supreme court ruling in favor of separation. They were right. So in terms of the way, the press operates, what's the news here where there's not a lot of news. So we're not going to give it great attention. The press on the other hand in the Richmond planet says that after this ruling evil days are indeed upon us Albion jai, the lawyer and judge and novelist and newspaper columnist was one of the hero. Does of your story. Another was the author of the sole dissenting opinion on Plessey Justice, John Marshall, Harlan known as the great dissenter. Here's one line from his dissent. Our constitution is color blind. And neither knows nor tolerates classes among citizens in respect of civil rights. All citizens are equal before the law. The humblest is the peer of the most powerful Marshall was from Kentucky former slave owner. A former opponent of the reconstruction laws, and he at the time deemed to punitive to the south. But obviously transformed how well it's a remarkable transformation of very hopeful one because it shows that somebody can hold despicable views and then abandoned him, and he does so forthrightly. I don't have any doubt about the genuineness of his transformation. He was a pro slavery candidate for congress at the age of twenty five. Five and eighteen fifty nine he comes from a slaveholding family. But he does raise a union regiment in eighteen sixty one because he believes that the union needs to be preserved both north and south. But he states that he's not going to fight a war against slavery. By the eighteen sixty eight period, Theus, changes mine, and partly it's politically driven. He has no home. You can't believe that. He he should belong to the Democratic Party, which is filled with ex angry confederates who've lost the war and had tried to accomplish by the ballot box with they couldn't accomplish by the war. And so he joins the Republican party that anti-slavery party, and he turns his eyes toward Washington because as a man who wants to make his Mark in the world and ambitious man. It's the only way that he can see that. He's going to have position that's going to give him some influence. Any fortunately is nominated to the coordinating seventy seven, but Steve wanna take note of that phrase in his dissent, equal before the law. Neither Harlan nor any of the advocates black or white who devoted their lives to equal rights are ever heard in your book, espousing, what was called social equality, the ideas that blacks and whites. It's would ever mingle. Well, even Harland in his dissent says that the white racists superior to the black race and will be for all time as long as it continues to respect the idea that everyone is equal before the law. That's an odd way to go after a quality. I think but it reflects the the attitudes of the time and in his arguments, he has quite inventive argument. Which is that your race races your property, and if you could pass for white and white is a better economic position to be black. How can you be prevented from trying to exploit that reputation and robbery and be denied it without due process? Now, if you think about that, it's a terrible argument because it means if they win that there could be a car a railroad car with white and mixed race passengers but still a separate car for those people who can't pass for white. So I tried to wrestle with this. Why would they make that argument and the answer I think is pretty odd. Obvious. He wants to win. And he sees these supreme court justices men of privilege and class who regard property rights as paramount. And so he's giving them a property right argument. I mentioned that the press in institution operated quite differently. And the eighteen fifties than it does today and a lot of the adequacy was basic crusading. It was constant coverage beating the same drum over and over and over sometimes for decades as a modern journalist did that make you feel at all queasy, or did you kind of long for the days when a news organization would put all of its reputation behind an ideal. I think I saw it just didn't its own context is being different. I mean, you have newspaper in Massachusetts, the liberator, which is the arm of the abolition movement of the Massachusetts anti slavery society every week. It's hammering on the issues that matter to that organization. It's a storehouse of information about the times, it's not objective reporting. But I can handle that I wouldn't want to necessarily work in that environment. But if I were living in the eighteen thirties and forties. Maybe I would have who knows. What do the media tend to miss now when we talk about plus Ferguson? They often say that the supreme court has created the doctrine of separate but equal and made it the law of the land. Well, I would argue that it didn't create the doctrine it's been a foot in the country for sixty years supreme court is endorsing it. But more importantly what we do. And we say the supreme court created is we're kind of giving the rest of the country a pass. This is the shame of the north the shame of the south the shame of all of us. It's not proper delay. It only at the feet of the supreme court. Steve. Thank you very much. Well, thanks, bud. Steve Luxembourg is an associate editor at the Washington.

We'll be joined by the esteemed host of the Andrew Clarke senior show heard right here. Live on Saturdays at noon. Tackling national and local headlines, it's our friend. Andrew Clarke senior good morning, sir. It's great to have you back on the program with some warmer weather, and it's nice to be dawn out for change. What's going on Andrew? He's going to be a good show. You guys are doing. Well, like you always do and tomorrow. We gotta talk about city council. The charter school issue. The governor the governor was out of university of Memphis, and he spoke to us spoke to the state we want to find out what I what listeners think about that in all that that entail, Andrew del. Now, the governor promised I think doubling the amount of money to be put toward charter schools. Is that the number the am I recalling that correctly? You are you are in B to. But the question is what you're going to get the money. And you know, this is the beginning of of his first term everybody is on his on his side. And you can't get the money. It sets free Texas. It just opens up the door to other other things. But I honestly wish you well. I hope he can get it done. What did you think about Tammy Sawyer? Tossing her hat in the ring yesterday to try to be the next Memphis mayor. She certainly has the right mysterious started out as a community activists allow voice a lot of demonstrations to where credit she has form community bonds, and she. Following it? Now, she's on the county commission. I just don't see her as being the mayor. But she's certainly welcome to try. I don't think it'll be. Oh, I did. You're absolutely right. She's welcome to try. But I I mean, I kinda I'm with you. And if anything I'm just hesitant right now. Just because and look, and I know she's been a community activists, and she was very vocal in the the statue take down and was seen a lot by the TV cameras, but only in elected office as a Shelby county Commissioner for a handful of months, it almost makes me wonder if she's doing this to kind of test the political waters in really gained some experience to try to make another run here. Maybe in a few years after getting a little more experience on the commission, or I don't think there's any question about it to me is too soon. But you know, what we say? Let's do this do that Brighton. She has the experience in this attack on her. She's outgoing she she's got a strong following. And as I said before I wish you well. I don't see it happening. No. I I don't see her beating strictly for her. Andrew Clarke senior joining us here on Memphis morning news. I, you know, I just not an expert on local politics. I try to kind of keep an ear to what's going on. But when it comes to analysis, I leave that to the experts, and I know you have seen and you've talked to a lot of people Andrew. Could this simply be something as simple as a basically a dry run for twenty twenty three? It's like what have I got to lose to run this time? Let me just see what my base is right now before I've even got much experience. I think you've assessed that quite properly one intellectualize it. It'd be very she cannot win. She's an unknown quantity in terms of can she govern? And she gets policies change. Can't you do this? Can't you do that? She doesn't have that base. But again, I wish you well. But I don't see any. I don't see anybody being Strickland right now. He's he's strong. Andrew what else are you looking at discussing tomorrow on the program and we've got charter schools, and you're talking about the the mayor's race is. Well, what what else do you see being a big topic tomorrow during your to our broadcast? I like the fact that the governor wants wants criminal reform much like what the president is done. To to govern at least early in his campaign. He pushed that so I won't see these concrete things come to to to reality. But I really am. I'm definitely gonna talk about. A second chance like Harrington head because governor said there's something he believes him. All right, Andrew. Hey, thank you so much for joining us on Memphis morning news, the program, the Andrew Clarke senior show tomorrow at noon, and sometimes if you're lucky enough, and you pay close enough attention. You may hear his voice during the Ben Ferguson show from time to time as well. So thank you for waking up with us this morning and giving us a few minutes of your time. And we look forward to you provide us some great live talk radio tomorrow starting at noon. Absolutely. Have a good day. Thank you. All right. There's our pal Andrew. And so it charter charter schools. I I'll be interested in I'll tune in tomorrow just to hear the discussion about that. Because that does present itself as a complex issue in regards to who's pushing back because you find that the public school systems are pushing back against charter schools, the teachers unions. I've seen in headlines have provided some pushback as well saying that the public school system can't afford to have money shifted from its school system to charter schools. So to hear Andrew's taken to hear what the people are saying is going to be fascinating tomorrow, and that all starts at noon right here on six hundred E C ninety two point one FM coming up. Megan Nichols says the associate editor at Memphis business journal. She'll join us at seven forty five and she'll have several stories to talk about. And oftentimes she'll have a story a few days before most of the mainstream catches up to it. So get ahead of the curve for their pal Meghan right here. Coming up in about twenty three minutes. It is.

"Associate editor of the Memphis business journal, our friend Megan Nichols. Megan. Thanks for joining us. How are you? A hope you are thawing out like the rest of us doing well. Good morning guys. Yeah. It's great to have you back on the program. Okay. Big announcement from Electrolux that seems to be making all the headlines what's going on with Electrolux? Yeah. So this is certainly the big headline. Yesterday was news that the Electrolux Memphis plan is going to be closing in twenty twenty so at its peak plant employed more than a thousand people currently has about five hundred and thirty employees locally, but the company is apparently consolidating its cooking products appliances business to Springfield, Tennessee. And it's going to be reinvesting in that plant Electrolux has previously stated how about ten percent of its North America revenue came from a Sears, essentially, so Sears bankruptcy has certainly had a negative impact. But Electrolux received a significant amount of incentives for its Memphis facility. So still lots of questions that need to be answered. But there were apparently not clawback provision for those incentives. So currently the state in Shelby county remain on the hook for a lot of that original investment to get them here. Now, meghan. I know what a clawback is. But for those that may not know in our audience. What does it clawback when it comes to a pilot? So essentially, it's if they were to leave before the pilot wants to expire, there'd be some provision where the incentives, and they might have to pay back where they then send it to be called off. So you kind of it's a safety net for our investment. But that was not in that contract. No, we're going to have to wait and see on this one. Oh, I wonder if that was a cut and paste wonder about that Meghan Nichols associated or the Memphis business journal joining us this morning. Other big company news FedEx retirement age. I changed their. Yes. So there's two kind of things that came from the board of directors this week with FedEx, I other notable news was Dave bronze Accu the president CEO. Fedex just was elected to the company's board of directors. So that decision is effective immediately. But the board also announced changes to the company's corporate government guidelines so previously. There was a mandatory retirement age for seventy five years old now that age requirement only applies to nonmanagement directors. Fred Smith is currently seventy four years old. So that's the adjustment in that rule. It'd be yeah. It'd be kind of weird to boot the founder of the company. Yeah. Meghan Clark tower getting a new tenant. Yeah. So little headquarter relocation news true. Temper sports is getting ready to move its headquarters to Clark tower. So true temper, which is one of the leading manufacturers of golf shafts is currently headquartered out and turnament drive in Southwind, but they're going to be moving to Clark tower in east Memphis, the company said they wanted to be in the heart of the city, rather than the suburbs. And that's kind of a larger plan to grow their local employees account by fifteen to twenty percent in the next couple of years. They wanted to space it would help attract some new talent. So that's supposed to be built out this spring, and they'll be moving in shortly after that. So I guess a warning into be careful for folks over at the Lenny's and over at the vitamin Shoppe and Home Depot if they start testing drivers on top Clark tower could be a problem across right? Four five six seven and eight you're hitting it off a Clark tower.

But at the risk is starting people's day on Downer before they've had their second Cup of coffee. This is now part of the new normal. You've got populism of the left. We're seeing that in France real concerns about inequality making ends meet. You've got politics the right against immigration over cultural anxiety, and then against a backdrop as I said what we used to call the west no consensus and not a lot of will on how to organize the world. She had this all up the domestic challenges against authority, a lack of international cooperation I'd ever thought when I wrote a book, but with the word, disarray, and the title, I would be an optimist, and guess what things have turned out worse than we thought. Really? Predicting quite a is there a way out for Macron? And may looking forward look in the long run. There's way out. There's nothing about this. That's inevitable. Wasn't inevitable. We'd get to where we are. It's not enough things are bad. But we yesterday. We didn't see the way out we saw retreat or capitulation in France. That's not going to be enough for those with the yellow vests. There's no way to clearly pay for it. Rigs there's zero consensus on what the next step ought to be no matter what's decided you've got a truly divided country. And a big part of it is also on us.

His former fixer Michael Cohen to make illegal hush money payments to two women during the two thousand sixteen campaign when asked if he had any concerns Senator Orrin Hatch told CNN and the democ. Kratz will do anything to hurt this president? When he was told the allegations came from the southern district of New York hatch said, okay, but I don't care all I can say is he's doing a good job as president hatch was asked whether he was concerned about the allegations. And he said, no because I don't think he was involved in crimes, but even then, you know, you can make anything a crime under the car all my he's turning into Trump. Honestly, these people are turning into Trump. If you want want to you can blow it way out of proportion. You can do a lot of things Louisiana Senator John Kennedy told NBC news, let me say this about Mr. Cohen Jesus loves him. But everyone else thinks he's an idiot. I think most Americans think he's asleep. Void Griff daughter. I can't imagine. Basing any kind of prosecution on the word of Mr. Cohen, Senate Judiciary chairman Chuck Grassley, also dismissed the allegations telling CNN they based on what a liar..
Outraged by Woodward book, Trump comments on libel laws
"Certainly plenty of buzz surrounding the upcoming release of Bob Woodward's book that offers an inside look at the Trump White House. In fact, it generated a recent conversation between Woodward and the president name sources, I've been naming the people are just say, you know, people have said I'd say two days following happened. Everyone including yourself. Quoted with the book fear Trump in the White House do out on the eleventh and excerpts already made public. The president is suggesting that libel laws be changed political reporter John Wagner wrote about this for his publication, the Washington Post, and he joins us on the KOMO Newsline. John, we appreciate your time very much. Thanks for having me before we get to this specific issue of libel laws. I wanna talk about someone who obviously is a major influence on your newsroom, and that's Bob Woodward as associate editor at the post, can you give people. An idea exactly what goes into his books. This is not the first one. He's written about a White House in terms of sourcing. Putting it all together before it is made available to the public. You're right. It's certainly not the first one he has written about presidents dating back to Richard Nixon and pretty much everyone in between now up until Donald Trump. The method generally uses is called deep background. He will talk to sources within and around the administration under condition that he can use their material. But most often they are not named. So that gets people to open up a little bit more, his interviews or can taped. So there is a record of everything that is said and from that that really becomes the source material for the book, I just wanted to provide that background because in one of those recorded conversations, we just heard a portion of the president actually praised Mr. Woodward. And of course, that tone has changed since yesterday in those excerpts came out in regards to libel laws. What exactly is the president saying? Tweet this. He said the same article or. Totally make up stories and quoting him here. Now for a picture of a person that is literally the exact opposite of the fact get away with it without your cost. Then he goes on to say, why Washington politicians libel laws? It's an interesting question because otherwise they're actually crafted at the state level, and he doesn't seem to be. You're interested in changing what happens in state legislature? So quickly. This course of action he's actually recommending so on a on a practical front. This is seems to be much more wish than reality. I think that's right. Very similar back in. Michael Wolff, fire and fury came out that also the unflattering picture of the White House, John Wagner. Good enough to join us political reporter with the
