Undercutting Scientists, Trump Says Tightening Covid-19 Vaccine Guidelines ‘Sounds Like a Political Move’
"Tonight President Trump is now threatening to overrule the FDA if he doesn't approve of the FDA's tougher guidelines potential vaccine Dr Anthony Fauci saying tonight I would back scientists and now the state's this evening where they say they'll have their own review of the vaccine. Here's Mary Bruce. After Touting Corona virus vaccine by election day president trump is now threatening to reject stricter safety standards that could slow down. It's release once again, undermining his own help officials. We're looking at that that has to be approved by the white has we may or may not approve it That sounds like a political move tonight, four vaccines are in their final trials, but new rules from the FDA would reportedly require drug makers to monitor trial volunteers for an additional two months. Dr Anthony Fauci coming to the FDA's defense they look at it and say, we really feel strongly we should go this way I would back the scientists. We'd have to do that as a scientist Xiaojie said they may not need the additional monitoring if the vaccine is overwhelmingly effective but stressed if they go ahead with, it is only to ensure the safety of the vaccine to get rid of. Completely, any further waiting for safety I think most scientists would say, no, you really gotta be careful the FDA declined to comment on the president's threat, but just hours earlier testifying on Capitol Hill. The FDA. Commissioner was adamant they are being guided by science not politics are thorough review processes and science will guide our decisions. FDA will not permit any pressure from anyone to change that vaccine could be authorized as soon as next month, but it is not expected to be widely distributed until next spring with concerns that the White House is increasingly injecting politics into the pandemic response New York today announced it's going to conduct its own review of any vaccine. Frankly, I'm not going to trust the federal government's opinion. And I wouldn't recommend New Yorkers based on the federal government's opinion tonight at least five other states in Washington. DC have also said they would conduct their own evaluations before distributing a vaccine with two hundred and two thousand. Americans. Now, dead officials are predicting up to twenty three thousand more dead by mid October, and now we're learning about a large study out of Houston, that is. Not. Peer reviewed saying the virus mutated and could be more contagious. But so far there's no evidence it's more deadly, potentially a more contagious strain.

Fauci clashes with Sen. Rand Paul over NYC's COVID sucess
"This coronavirus has been politicized from the jump in the United States. But this week's pandemic politics have been particularly jarring. It started on Monday. The CDC pulled guidance from its website that said that this virus mainly spreads by air guidance that they only posted. Friday guidance widely accepted as fact in the scientific community but the CDC pulled it and said, it had been posted in error not a great look lots of unanswered questions. Then on Wednesday Dr Steven Hahn Commissioner of the Food and Drug Administration appeared before the Senate to reassure the nation that the vaccine approval process would not be politicized that a host of experts outside the organization would weigh in before any approvals were granted almost immediately after that happened president trump said in a briefing that may or may not happen and that the whole. Thing sounded quote like a political move at that same Senate hearing Wednesday we saw something rare Dr Anthony Fauci. The country's top infectious diseases. Experts seem to lose his cool with Senator Rand Paul. You've been a big fan of Cuomo in the shutdown. New York lauded New York for their policy New York had the highest death rate in the world. How can we possibly be? Jumping up and down and saying Ho Governor Cuomo did a great job hit the worst death right in the world no you misconstrued that Senator and you've done that repetitively in the past they got hit very badly. They've made some mistakes right now if you look at what's going on right now, the things that are going on in New York to get their tests. Positively one percent or less is because they are looking at the guidelines that we have put together from the task force of the four or five things of masks social, distancing outdoors more than indoors avoiding crowds and washing hands, or they've developed enough community immunity that they're no longer having the pandemic because they have enough immunity in New York, city tax challenged that senator. Free. Please Sir I would like to be able to do this because this happens with senator rand all the time you and not listening to what the director of the CDC said that in. New York twenty, two percent. If you believe twenty two percent is heard immunity I believe you're alone in that we're used to seeing heated exchanges in Congress, but this one felt different because Dr out she has been a paragon of patients during this entire pandemic we got in touch with him earlier today to ask his patience was running out but we started with what's to come with this pandemic as we head into winter. Good Morning Dr out she. Good Morning. How are you today? I'm doing well great to have you back on the show. Welcome to my closet. Okay, get good ventilation in there now be careful we don't want you fainting on me. Happy. Equinox and new season is upon us, and of course, winter is coming what's in store for the United States as as the seasons change during this pandemic well, you know it's going to be complicated because what we really need to appreciate is that as we enter into the full in the winter, a lot of things that we would have done outdoors, which is part of the public health programme the protocol a now going to have to be done indoors, which means it'll be an. Extra special challenge we often say the four or five things that really do work. If everybody implements them is wearing masks keeping a distance avoiding crowds outdoors than indoors washing hands. If everyone had done that diligently, we would not have seen some of the surges that we've seen that have given us. What I would consider is an unacceptably high background, and by background I, mean is the number of cases per day which even when they're in young people who most of whom are without symptoms, minimal symptoms nonetheless, it propagates the outbreak and you've got to get that down remember when we. Were trying to open the economy in the country a couple of months ago month and a half ago. The southern states you know literally metaphorically caught fire. And the number of daily cases were around seventy thousand with about a thousand deaths per day. Now, we're back down but you between thirty and forty. But like day you go yesterday was forty some odd thousand cases that's unacceptable as you enter the winter. If you WANNA, go into the fall in the winter and have to have the extra challenge of a potential flu season, which will have hopefully, we can mitigate it together with the fact that most people will be indoors in most climates. In this country, it's an extra challenge I would like to get that baseline way down way down in a few thousand, not thirty or forty thousand.

The Real Reason NFL Ratings Are (Slightly) Down
"So Dan. Let's start the story back in June is been ten days since George Floyd was brutally murdered. To actually. Listen to you. We had this prominent NFL players put out that video about black lives matters. Behalf. Football League. This is what we the players would like to state. Leave black lives matter. And then Commissioner Roger Goodell doing what the players had requested. We the National Football League emit we wrong for not listening to NFL players earlier and encourage all to speak out in peacefully protests. Read the National Football League Aleve black lives matter was their concern within the NFL at that time about the league. So openly embracing the black lives matter movement and concern that it could impact. TV ratings when the season began I think without a doubt. There was concern commissioner goodell made that video without consulting the owners many of whom in the past taken a hard line on kneeling intertwining politics, social issues and sport. We have more on the story that is dominating the National Football League the anthem protests Jerry Jones was Adam Sunday that any player that does not stand for the national. Anthem will not play Jones clarified that statement telling our Chris sentiment within the NFL that good for business is no intersection of politics and sports. Now that boat seems to have clearly have sailed not just in the NFL, but the rest is sport but I would be surprised if ratings fall, we don't begin to hear some voices from within the NFL saying we've gone too far on opening. Night of the season, the chiefs versus Texans, we saw players link arms in a moment of Solidarity Ladies and gentlemen please join us in a moment of silence dedicated to the ongoing fight or equality in our country, and we've seen a number of players putting names of victims of police brutality on their helmets. What's bend the public response to those moves? Obviously in Kansas City there was some booing. Depending on which media outlet you read it was either a lot of booing or a little booing. But there was some booing and interviewing the fans who booed it's hard to know why whether they disapproved of the message whether they disapproved adjust anything interfering with sports but there will always be that voice saying we don't want is social issues politics intersect was fort. So after week one, there were reports that NFL ratings were down though it turns out those reports weren't entirely accurate and a whole bunch of analysis followed, Dan, what was some of the commentary around those early reports were obviously in a politically charged Environment, and there are those who want to scribe lower sports ratings to the political movements that have intersected with sports. So you saw headlines and certain conservative publications woken NFL ratings down sixteen seventeen percents the doubleheader on Monday night football, the Sunday night football game, the Thursday night kickoff game those were down monstrously large over last season. Why is that to me? The answer is pretty simple. My hypothesis is when you get woke, you go broke but everybody in this environment of trump versus bite in republican versus Democrat. Every wants to interpret sports ratings through that Lens football's boring as hell, it's just not the same pattern. Used to. Say could you keep it away from football game? Now say, could you possibly do it during football game? We have some free time when really the reasons for ratings rise and fall have very little to do in my opinion with the political news of the day.

"You would think yeah I would think Liz yet. No it would get ugly. It would not go well for Biden and I don't see I see the wisdom of what you're saying for Biden I wouldn't be as you know muzzled as you're suggesting he needs to be but I think what he speaks about should be his vision for restoring expertise to critical public policy. Jobs to the cabinet. You know to be honest. Fine Yeah I mean a little bit scripted policy where I read it yet. I'm reading. I'm not doing anything impromptu. That no did you know that Tom.

"Buy all the time so was talking with a state insurance commissioner recently and we were talking about how auto insurers now no longer generally set rates based on your age male or female and your driving record and a lot of them in states where it's legal use your credit score to set your rates I've talked about that over the years but now insurers are customizing individual rates to individual people so this is something the insurance commissioner said there's just driving he and his staff crazy there people are having individualize rates but a lot of insurers now or drilling down where you could be quoted a completely different rate then let's say five hundred other people who live near you who are similar age similar driving history every one of you would be quoted a different rate why because insurers are buying data on you in the market place that tells them what kind of person you are in ways that let them know how much they can charge you okay so one thing that came out years ago and I shared with you has become much more refined but insurers are using data like how loyal you are to a particular company like let's say you stayed with the same cellular company for years and years and years of market that's wide open the you could switch repeatedly or very is services you use products you buy or you brand loyal they know that you somebody buys generic she somebody buys brand names so the more you show a pattern being brand conscious and the more you show that you're a loyal to a particular company or brand they believe they can charge you far higher rates for your auto insurance I'm oversimplifying this but these are just some of the factors they're using to determine what they're gonna charge you yeah the thing is about this deep dive data that more and more auto insurers are using is that the data they crunch and how they value it and how they use it to set rates is different.

"I was criticized the mocked and cursed out by David Stern. I was also often in the same conversation. Treated treated warmly joked with and even praised as every remembrance in the wake of Stern's death last week at age. Seventy seven has noted. Stern was the smartest guy in the room. Room forceful demanding sharpen fast and usually right. He was a master manipulator of reporters agents players and his bosses the team owners he helped save the NBA NBA in crisis. In the one thousand nine hundred seventies he helped turn basketball into the second most popular sport on the planet. He helped make players incredibly rich. He defended Magic Johnson after his HIV diagnosis he started the WNBA. But legacies are complicated things and stearns thirty year. Tenure as commissioner wasn't perfect he he tolerated racist Donald Sterling another flawed owners. He botched the investigation into crooked ref. Tim donaghy he screwed over fans in Seattle and not everyone unappreciated his mean streak. Jackie macmullan new stern as well as any reporter she covered the NBA for the Boston Globe. Sports illustrated and ESPN for more than a quarter order century. In two thousand ten she received the Kurt Gowdy Media Award from the Basketball Hall of fame and last year she received the pen. ESPN lifetime achievement. I'm an award for literary sports writing. She still appears on. ESPN around the horn. Jackie thank you so much for joining us. Well it's my pleasure every NBA Gabi reporter has a story about an encounter with David Stern. And they've all been sharing them in the aftermath of his death tells your personal favorite. Well my favorite it was. I think it was ninety. Five the first lockout and things hadn't been resolved yet and we were at a courthouse New York and I was not a new journalist but I was new to television television and I was with the Boston Globe but I was doing things I was doing some TV for ESPN on the side and they had me there to do a live standup up following the proceedings in New York and I had seen stern you know as a as the proceedings ended and of course he didn't he wasn't talking to anybody wasn't doing the interviews so you know a cursory wave off he went so I'm lining up in this building and I'm you know I've never done a life in my life ever of course. ESPN didn't know that or they never want to ask me to do. And I'm standing there. I'm getting ready to go. I'm looking at the camera on just just as we're about to start the shadowy figure that goes behind the camera and as I start my life stand up the commissioner of the NBA is standing behind the camera with his thumbs in his ears waving his fingertips like reindeer antlers. I making making the most outrageous faces. I've ever seen like a ten year old at recess. He's trying to get me to laugh during my stand up and it was just I I mean I I couldn't believe it and and I didn't laugh so I guess that was my test. That was the test I passed that day but there was always a test. There was always a test with David but that was one of my favorites. Our friend Ethan. Strauss wrote a piece for the athletic about our relationship. He struck up with stern over the last few years after stern retired these phone calls they'd have and the kind of constant instant needling and challenges from stern about everything from macro issues about the NBA. Ethan using the word solid cystic. In a way that David let's turn felt was inaccurate. And you know Ethan put the most positive. I think that or had a really positive impression of David Stern. that he loved debate that he loved kind of intellectual back and forth. But in some of these other remembrances. Jackie there are folks like David Aldridge writes about it just like how stern could be so mean to people in a way. That seemed unnecessary at times whether it was browbeating employees in meetings or something else so how do you kind of sum up. What he was doing and what his personal was well? He had a volcanic temper. And I was certainly on the end of on the wrong end of that from time to time to and you know there were two things that David didn't didn't wouldn't stand for and it was to be uninformed or worse to be ill informed. Those are two things he wouldn't stand for and that didn't matter if you were an owner a player a reporter a secretary. The kid bringing the wrong coffee. Those are the kinds of things he just couldn't tolerate. And you know you guys have been around a lot of perfectionist professional athletes and so of I. I've seen this in other people I've seen Michael Jordan district and Michael Jordan. You know I've seen this and I'm not gonNA say his name but announcer that I admire greatly. Who's been in sports for a long time? WHO's one of the best? But everybody hates working with him because he he wants everything everything exactly right and that can be wearing on people because we're human. We make mistakes. And that was the one part of David that was not always palatable audible because he just didn't ever consider that not. Everybody was the smartest him or as careful as him or as accurate as he was And that there's a lawyer in him but at the end of every conversation David always have this this ability to forget where you might not forget and attempt to patch patch things up as if this was normal course of business. You know he'd yell at you and then he'd ask you how your family was right. Yeah he did that a lot but he also I remember once I got a call to come see him in New York and I thought this is great all these years of my relationship with David Stern. I'm getting something here you know and I I went all the way down to New York. ORC I was coming from Boston. Ns Sense brought me down there to yell at me. He said you used to be nice. Now you're like everybody else and I said well David. My job isn't always be tonight not to be nice and by the way you're not very nice you know so I was. I knew him long enough that I could have those kind of conversations with him and and I just I would tell you this. I remember when I was interviewing him for the win. The game was ours. which was the book I wrote about Larry in in Irvine and of course David was such such a central figure to me? The three of them were intertwined. And Larry Off and tells me people say urban and I saved the game. It was David Stern. It wasn't me it wasn't Larry. I mean it was an nerve and so I was interviewing him for the for the book and I had all my notes. I knew quite a bit About his role in every in the you know the growth of the NBA forty four million dollars in revenue nineteen eighty-four that the grew to over three billion by two thousand seven. I knew all those statistics. I had all my stuff but I was asking him questions uh-huh because I didn't want to assume anything and we're part way through the process he said to me well. Why are you asking me these stupid questions? You know all the answers I said yes but I need you to say aide them so I can use them at my book and he just thought that was the dumbest thing he'd ever heard. You already know the answers to this. Why are you ask me? You live this as I. I mean he was just so irritated with May and so there were times like that. You just throw up your hands so David Stern comes into the league in our country has a relationship with the league going back to the nineteen sixty s when he was a lawyer and represented the league. You know the biggest case that a lot of people are citing is the Oscar Robertson case which led to the NBA Aba merger. Eventually can you take us back to the very beginning. What stern in the NBA? Well see the one that I think people should focus on a little more. Maybe it's just because it's not as well known is he also represented the NBA in the Connie Hawkins case and for those Young people who don't know the whole story of Connie Hawkins. He was a New York City High School Basketball Legend and incredible player. Who was cavorting with known point Shavers and ended up getting being involved in a scandal that he said he had that he was innocent that he had never shaved any points? And you know you could argue you go back and look at. He was on a high school team that dominated he never got to play. Second of college and Connie's point always was. How can I fix games? We won every game. It was a high school game. People weren't bidding on Highschool Games. Anyway I digress a little bit but it's a frustrating story for me so anyway. Connie Connie Hawkins is banned from the he's blackballed from the NBA. And his lawyers are trying to get him reinstated and the firm that is representing the NBA gives it to a young lawyer named David. Stern earned a look over and he looks over all the documents and the testimony in court and the fact that they young to this this young African American kid away from school and just literally sequester questioned him for three days in like almost like a safe house without any representation You know they would say things like you did this didn't you. You know. Just it was just. He was is clearly railroaded. And so this young attorney went to the NBA and said you've done a terrible injustice to this man and you need to reinstate him immediately. There is no evidence evidence to suggest that he ever conspired to fix any game and and so because of David Stern Connie Hawkins was reinstated into the NBA. I don't know a lot of people know that that and that's that's a theme that runs through. I think David's career to he is he was clearly and very openly a progressive liberal who donated to progress liberal real causes. As did his wife and David David did was take these players. Who in the in the seventies especially by the late nineteen seventies? Were we're perceived as drug using the league had a problem with cocaine. The league was perceived as predominantly black. which was bad for business? David made the NBA Palatable to white consumers which led to its rapid growth. After Larry Larry and magic and Michael became worldwide superstars in the nineteen eighties. Right and you know how he did that was he. He talked to the players. I mean I talked a uh-huh Kareem abdul-jabbar was talking about going to the All Star game and having to sit in this big banquet room with these bright lights and Kareem had migraines and so when Stern said to Kareem what can we do differently. 'cause get me out of that room getting rid of the lights you know. So then they start having private receptions with family kids and you know the slam dunk contest. Rick welts with someone. I believe who came up with that one of David's right hand guys and so David was smart enough to go directly to the source and talk to the players which. I don't know if many people had to do that much before. That doesn't mean that he did everything they suggested or everything they asked but he got a better sense from them. What was going to work for them? And what was going to make them happier. And and then of course the the outreach they did with consumers and and the audience that was not coming to the games the attendance is very low. I mean he tells a story about out when he's the vice counsel for the as not the commissioner yet and there's a there's an all star game and Brendan Byrne Arena in New Jersey and they can't give tickets away. He's he's calling. He's literally camping people by phone. And saying hey come to the game and and you know they'll say it's free. I'm.

We have to start taking care of ourselves and and when you're in crisis you might not be able to do that so that's why we need partners. We need the friends. We need family members. We need the supervisor's executives to make sure that people get the help they need when they need it because this is this is heartbreaking for everybody in the n._y._p._d. And it's heartbreaking for the people in the city who really do appreciate the men and women and the n._y._p._d. Though i just wanna ask you a tough question here because there have been ten suicides so after the suicide aside happens what does the n._y._p._d. Do do they go in and they look at each individual case to try to figure out why this is happening and what's the background and then you you acquire the data to try to open the eyes of people that maybe leadership looking for different signs or different depression aspects to a person's mental health yeah yeah we take a look but it does take some time because you know you've got to think about the families that are involved in the friends that are involved. There are absolutely devastated and you want to come in there asking really tough questions right away but it is part of our investigation looks at that our medical division looks at that this way we can have a <hes> a suicide autopsy this way we can collect data and see what the issues are listen. It is really difficult to be a police officer anywhere in the united states and i think it's particularly difficult in new york city with all the challenges that we face and all the great work that's being done so we have to make sure that the people come on the job to make a difference in to do good and they do that and we have to make sure that they have <hes> the ability if they are having issues and not let it lead up to crisis whether it's personal issues professional issues <hes> issues family issues issues money issues. We have to give them the resources to deal with that so it doesn't build a crisis is airports they can go. That's anonymous where they can go and get the help without having everybody else a part of this. There's there's there's a number of things that we can do. This is the internally <hes> there's the medical division of the employee assistance unit and if you don't wanna to do that you can go outside the department. We've had a lot of our health providers. Come forward and and make sure that the psychology psychologists counselors are getting money. They deserve if we're sending people going there on their own and we're now working with a major university. Who's going to have <hes> within twenty four hours. You'll be able to make an appointment anonymously at no cost immediately lupi. You'll be able to do that for somebody. At that's a whole nother yeah that's and that's that's another issue that would dealing with. We have to make sure that <hes> ah we get this information out the family members too because who knows best and i i know as a police officer for a long time if i had issues or challenges <hes> during my workday workday. I didn't come home and talk about it but i'm sure <hes> my my spouse or my kids knew something was wrong so we have to give them the ability to to find out what the issues are. We actually put an app on every cop has a smartphone now the employee assistance unit app it gives a rundown of what the signs of depression are and what you can do what the resources says are internally and externally but the boomer geo the big step.

"commissioner" Discussed on WNBA Weekly
"The higher police dukes, I'm talking to ten year. The one thing that, that almost kind of got tucked away that someone caught, and we're all wondering about is the title change. She's not the WMU presence, she's WNBA Commissioner. I wonder if is there do you carry any weight with? That is an interesting do I do. Actually, I think that that's to me to me. I think that that's going to be less of a do like the title change. Because to me, it sounds more action based is that weird than I feel like a commission is, is more action than president? I feel like the president's there as you know, on the face of the company, right? And I'm here but I feel like a Commissioner is. Someone that I would feel like okay like they're actually like they have processes in they've got progress in the, the kind of more of a boots on the ground type of person. That's how it feels to me. I don't know for sure if what we're gonna end up seeing obviously, a we're gonna have to wait till you know, June July win when she really starts to take kinda see what happens there. But I do like the title change of Commissioner. I think that it's, it's a positive one moving forward. You know, I do think let's see. I wanna I wanna read a couple of comments that we're getting in from the right now it says it sounds like she's going to shine a bat signal and w player's going to hop. I agree. Although they alluded to her being employee, friendly, they highlighted her bringing a sixteen week. Family paid leave. So anyway, let's see title change somewhere like a major league sport than just a business subsidary in the past. Agreed. Agreed. That's again, that's, that's, that's a probably a better way of putting it is that the title changed. Sounds like hey we this is a sports league in. We've got someone who's kind of leading out in that rather than of, I'm the president of the, you know, again, that's that sounds a little bit where subsidary of the of the Indies. It sounds like an elected move. Hey one you take over for a while. And I think when we hear Commissioner we think that's a higher long term position. We'd expect to see because I'll tell you honestly, when it comes to these Commissioner roles in sports, often the biggest tool and the biggest success point is long jetty, what may Daniel stern successful, the NBA's that he's the Commissioner for almost thirty years, a show? We had the. Ability to cultivate, your retirement, if we can feel comfortable. This is a potential position that some can hold for a while. That puts us in a lot of good footing. These constant starts and stops is it's really hard to maintain growth that way. You know, one thing that I do like that. She brings us that she's worked in the past, obviously, you know, working working in the role that she has, you know, prior to come to the WNBA. She's worked a lot with corporations. Right. And probably incorporate having bring some of those relationships into the corporate sponsorship area could be huge is if we can get more money coming into the league through corporate sponsorships. I think that alone is going to help kind of bolster some of that those discussions about getting more more money in the pockets of the players. And I think once it starts there has to be there has to be a first domino to fall. It's either pay the players. I you know, convincing the NBA to send a little bit more money down to the WNBA in pay the players I because once you knew that then you have the players being able to not have to play over seas. Instead, they're playing year or their they play their season. And then they've got the whole rest of the year to go out and they can be promoters. They can go in a ten their local NBA franchise, if they have one, they can go to those games in and be part of that. When so many of the stars are playing overseas. They're not here building a fan base..

"Just search for politico Halse check, he should also check the show notes where we linked to stories previous episodes with Commissioner God lead and other items that we reference. During the conversation. And now, let's get to that conversation with Commissioner. Scott Gottlieb Commissioner Scott Gottlieb. Welcome back to politico. Pulse. Check. Thanks for having me. We weren't expecting you back. So soon the secret to cut the line is just to announce it your resigning it worked here. You are one of your colleagues. I was asking around trying to figure out what what to ask you today. One of your colleagues said I should ask if you don't love America anymore. If that's why you're leaving the FDA feel free to weigh in on that sometimes, you know, sometimes a pipe just a pipe. And you know, the reason I'm leaving the reason I gave this got really difficult commuting from Connecticut and being away from my family, basically for two straight years. So my kids on Saturday, but you know, it'd be home late Friday night. And I'd be back in Washington Sunday and mostly working all day Sunday. So two years of that with with three young kids got hard reporters. Like me, my colleague, Sara Carl Smith's are over m-. All others have been. Trying to figure out the reasons behind your departure. Do you understand why that has been such a source of curiosity? I don't understand why has been source of curiosity. You know, obviously, I love this job. And I'm very unhappy leave it I would have liked to have done for longer. And it was a difficult decision in the week after I resigned motionless. It was very difficult. I was thinking whole week. What did I do was this right decision? But you know, I've been in two years, and I worked this job one hundred and fifty percent, I think that that was largely apparent to people on the outside. This was really a twenty four seven job. I I didn't work from home Fridays. I was home late Friday night again, which spent part of Saturday with my kids. Go out my wife, Saturday night and Sunday be back at work two straight years that difficult. I think in retrospect had had I do it over again. I would have moved my family down here at the outset. But I didn't speaking on behalf of journalists. I think one reason it is such a source of curiosity is there. It could be a reason that you're leaving that could be of interest to the American people, for instance, if you push too hard on tobacco, and that was an issue or if the White House had a different vision for the FDA that would seem to be of interest to well on the tobacco. I understand the proximity of when I announced on that Tuesday versus there was reports that I had been at the White House that Friday a briefing on tobacco meeting. But the reality is, you know, there was always going to be something immediately before I resigned and something coming up immediately after I resigned as always things happening here every week. I think with respect to the tobacco issue in particular. I would hope we put that to rest with the announcement made last week where not only did weed Vance a policy that we intended to. But you know, we got strong support the secretary put out a statement. I had a White House fact sheet issued the White House press secretary re tweeted some of the statements Kellyanne Conway over the weekend re tweeted some of these statements with respect to that that announcement you had to chief-of-staff, Mick Mulvaney and had. Domestic policy council. Joe Rogan both affirming that there was going to be steps taken to address a youth the youth addiction to to nicotine in e cigarettes and additional tobacco relation coming. So I think the strong statements and the administration which we would have had regardless. But I would think that's strong. That's strong statement from the administration, in fact that we got that policy out in time for him that we that we intended to would would put those rumors to rest vaping has been a major subject of of your tenure. It has been something you've weighed in on quite a bit. I don't want to spend too much time on it. But the Washington Times a conservative paper has an editorial today Wednesday morning saying that your resignation quote comes at just the right time..

"On and in our earlier podcast with a top jewel executive Tevi. Troy, we talked about how cool some of these products, actually, look, and why that can be a difficult balance a strike because they need to be somewhat cool. But not so trendy is to get teenagers hooked on them too. FDA Commissioner Gottlieb has teased a formal announcement next week. You're a reporter here. What are you watching for? Well, I think that there is definitely going to be more in that announcement than the flavored products ban. Like, we said Altria has already sort of prompted with some things that they want to see. So maybe we will see something about age limits in next week's plan. Also, we have to remember that this is a very quick reaction to a very specific issue teen use. But like you said they want to strike a balance for adult smokers as well. They have pushed back actually formally regulating the industry until twenty twenty two. So they've got a few more years to outline what it can look like from this point onwards. How flavored products can come back to the market and how they are going to make sure that adult smokers continue switching I would note that on Thursday the same day that this announcement came out the CDC released figures. Saying that smoking is an all time low. I think that the FDA wants to make sure that that trend continues and they're going to be looking at e cigarettes as a part of that in the future.

I know you must be pleased with where you are and where this conference is going. I start with where the conferences and where the conference going, and it's obviously great to be a part of it. So the the announcement today in the trust of our presidents and chancellors is an honor. It's exciting, but we're right back to work no doubt and I'm sure it's it's not something that you're probably thinking about, but it's always nice to move these things off the off off to the side so you can get back to what you're supposed to be doing and let let's talk about this conference. I football, I'm sure you catch the the people every Sunday afternoon. You don't look too far for SEC teams. Well, I saw I think your tweet week where you made it observation about our performance kind of is that all. So it's only four, four, eight, come on. Yeah, come on. That's exactly right. Yeah, it's it's, it's a testament to the support provided to our programs are coaches are student athletes just I was watching your. Your interview with Mark and the progress that's been made in Kentucky's program year after year, and it's taken awhile and to see them at this point in the season undefeated attribute to them. But that's happening all across greatly. And we have good first couple of weeks. We'll look to see that play out through the rest of the season. Yeah, I do. I do want to ask you about Kentucky because everyone's proud of the accomplishments up there, but it would really gets me Commissioner are the fans. I mean, they have literally taken over this program in many others was such enthusiasm. And I think it shows that when people don't look too closely at a league life, this they're missing out on some of the great stories. They are the first time I ever visited Lexington was in June of two thousand three. And obviously you think about basketball and this great tradition there, but this huge football stadium, Mitch Barnhart, and his staff have completely remodeled that stadium. I was there for the Auburn game a couple years ago on a Thursday night, and you saw that enthusiasm and passion play out. We just finished an athletic director's meeting like literally a few moments ago. Mitch is our chair and they have three hundred, their leading donors traveling to college station. There's an excitement on their team not only where they are, but the chance to play somebody new someplace new. And that's part of the excitement that I think they feel as well Commissioner. I want to go back to your tenure nearly three little bit over three years now since taking over for Commissioner slide, and we have a graphic on our screen talking about some of the great accomplishments intern. Terms of revenue sixteen national championships, we all were so proud of the basketball tournament this year, and that was one of one of the things I know you work so hard onto to make sure the right people were in place and the emphasis on college basketball with eight in the tournament, of course, of base baseball speaks for itself and so does football. I know that's a lot to digest, but it's it's part of what you do every day with this conference represents. We stand in many ways is the Commissioner stand on the shoulders of the people in front of me. You know, my closeness with Mike and working with him here for so many years, what he put in place and ROY Kramer before him has been a friend of mine for twenty five years and and even through the legacy of commissioners in the decision making. So when I say it's an honor, it's an honor to lead this great conference given the status that you just explained, but also to to step into the shoes which are are huge, enormous to fill given the great leadership. This conference has had overtime, and that's produced those outcomes. You know, sixteen national championships in the last three years, we had eleven runners-up last year..
