Help catherine so we will. We'll talk about The zhanna same alcatraz matching tomorrow's part and a preview the semifinal once we have all the names but that then fed into the next women's quarter-final that was on court and zillions facilitator against lighter. Fernandez who in. I feel like i feel a bit miffed slightly missed out on the lane and this story because i started to feel under the weather just when she's beaten. I woke up to find out that scoreline. And i watch some of it back. I was heartbroken for soccer in and that press conference that she gave you both did a wonderful job of Explaining what went on there. But i couldn't believe what i was seeing for from finance and then and then the cub match was when i read understood where we were. What was what she was doing and how she was able to just stop. Somebody like kerber our own game but today was the way she piecing this together. She's beaten selena tonight. Six three three six seven six and And she took the best of sicily in tonight. I mean this was not alina. Vitalini grandson player. Who kind of lets herself down. That didn't happen tonight. This was fitted. Lena who martin never saliva thinks. He's is looking more like a grand slam champion taken to a young opponent not letting herself down standing up to a and still losing. Because that's how good fernandez i mean. She is inspiring in her short making and her bravery out on the coast. Yeah and i think. In the most literal sense of that word. She is inspiring the other eighteen year olds in this tournament. Well she's nineteen now isn't she. Fernandez just nineteen But yeah connor has said that she's been inspired to the playing the day after fernandez sort of seeing what she's she's been doing Gosh i would love to have some passing analysis of this match. But i just fair it's all going to be able to master is just hyperbole and explosives out great. It was such a compelling match one of the best in a tournament of fantastic matches. This was one of my favorites Because as you say. I think the difference between radikal new in finance as is the. I thought we knew who fernandez walls red economy. Who's really come out of the blue. We've not got any real data on her. Other than wimbledon in terms of this level but fernandez has been around on on the tour for a couple of years. And we've seen it had some good results we've seen her climb steadily in the rankings. But we've never seen this before I think both in terms of the level of tennis and also the way. She's carrying herself on the court. I think that's something. We never tell over his talked about on the prime coverage that yes fernandez who had self belief. Of course she has but she's never really of outwardly. Shown it on the core i. I've often thought of as quite a shy player. Perhaps but now she someone who conducts the new york crowd and walks with the real purpose and puts a fist the air whenever she hits a fantastic shot. And it's it's intoxicating it takes you with her And so on the one hand we had. We had that we had this this player with the greatest confidence. They've ever had in their career trying to do something they've never done before. And then on the other hand we had spit selena who is applied with a lot of experience on this stage but not always positive experience for her. It was about trying to overcome those those past matches. She's had so. Is this fascinating dynamic within the match and spit. Selena started quite slowly. I thought and she was playing in the way that we've seen her play these big matches in the past being passive and letting fernandez dictate but then. She willed herself to do the right thing. And she played brilliantly i thought i in sets to an inset three and ultimately it was just finance as being the better player that won this match Fernandez is incredibly solid from the baseline in the same way that spitzer leaner is and yet. She's got a little extra. She's got a little though spark in her game. That means she can anticipate westwood. Selena's going to hit the ball or she can suddenly injected pace at a nowhere. She can do something just a little bit magical In a way that switzerland kahn quite. She doesn't quite have that. But goodness i agree with you she. She played very well today. Selena and surely one of her best grand slam matches. I think it was the first time she'd been in a grand slam quarterfinal semifinal and lost the first set and not lost in straight-sets. She proves something today that that she could change the course of a mac. She just couldn't couldn't quite get over the finish line but that was more to do with finance as being brilliant i think than it was fit. Selena letting us south down that little bit of magic you talk of. I think is encapsulated in her. Left in us the way she will just flash a left handed hook forehand and stop pinning spilling backhand corners physically and has got a nice background. It's solid canton. Coming back kept on coming back. And she's been dragged further and further out into the tramlines but it keeps on coming back and then there's that moment whereas selena went back into the center of the court and fernandez is able to hit an inside out backhand instead and totally wrong footer. When on the one moment she thought she'd got and and that's yeah. There's a bit of genius about her And she's a shotmaker. She's she she kind of needs to be a shotmaker because she doesn't have role power. She's she's not muslim the ball. She's she's timing it and she's just she's got a really good tennis. Iq it seems to me. Yeah and then. She combines all that with a fight and whether determination you know she was five two up in that the satin switzerland charge back at her and called it level and she just seemed unbothered by that and she wasn't rattled. She just kept during her thing. You mentioned the run of matches the vendors xantia up. I don't know why. I'm bringing that name up again when we already sort of done. That section of the park anyway finances run is incredibly impressive when you when you really look at it and break it down and kanu in the first round kaya connected to perennial danger woman in grand slams and then asaka curb spit selena. All of those.

"fernandez" Discussed on MotoWeek - MotoGP, Motorcycle and Racing News
"Are on the website at motor week dot net. All right here. We go the rundown just about everything. We're going to talk about on this episode of the program. We're going to start with something. I completely forgot about on the post ratio. Mark has an la grow the showdown on the track off. The track in front of the media will talk about. Who is at fault in. What's going to happen from here. Actually something is going to happen after that. Pair of incidents a new dash message for riders. Actually there are two of them starting this weekend. We'll talk about those and then we'll tackle the conundrum. Net is ralph fernandez. Coming the mo- gp. Does he really want to be there. At least three. We'll talk about the situation. Y fernandez is upset about it along with a whole bunch of other people and what really should have happened there. I'm is it panic. Time for yamaha when it comes to finding riders for next season. They're treading closer and closer to the panic stage so talk about who their latest options are a is getting a huge huge gift from michelin. This weekend i'll tell you what it is. Then we'll move onto the comments. You had a lot to say this week about valentino rossi's retirement announcement the steering gp. Danny padro some maverick. Ktm and a whole lot more will also go over some picks video and then we'll wrap up the show with this weekend's race. The austrian gp our preview and picks for around eleven of the world championship does get easier to pick this race because we just have one last weekend but mostly no not at all. I i'll explain later all right. So let's get going with the modo. Gp news and we're going to start actually with the comment because twisted lizard brought this up over. I'm read it. And i cannot believe that i forgot to talk about this on the post trade show but in my defense with all of the craziness and the wreck in the fire and the red flag rookie. His first motor gp race. I totally forgot to discuss. The pair run-ins between marc marquez and alex spa grow on the first lap of each of the races. You probably already know about the incident. So i won't go into too many details. There unsurprisingly ally was upset about both incidents. Mark was a little bit defensive even going as far as saying that the second fender banging session was totally gross fault. Although to elliot's credit he did kind of leave. The door open for at least a little bit of the blame. After the race in the second incident he was only really focusing on the first as his main source of frustration. But as usual the truth really lies somewhere in between each rider story. I'm on the first incident. Which by far was the biggest collision between the two. I'm a little bit torn. if i'm being perfectly honest because it depends which replay you watch. What feeling you come away with about what happened there. Other the world themed shot from down low going into term one made it look like mark was walk away too aggressive going in but i will admit that once you watch the overhead shot a couple of times. Yeah mark was definitely a little too impatient. He was dive bombing the corner. I mean darren. Bender would have been proud of him. But alex didn't really do the best job of anticipating whether somebody was going to be there. He cut the apex of that corner very late and in a crowded starting field going into the first corner. You do kind of have to expect that guys are going to be around you. And some of them may be making aggressive moves up the inside normally not that big of a deal but if your plan is to apex that turn late to begin with. There's a good chance you could cut across. Somebody's nose in that instance so i'm not holding. La's completely blameless in that first run in. Although really mark was in the more on position he could more easily understand what was developing into the corner because he was behind al h coming in it so you can make a very similar argument that it's also marks responsibility knowing. He's around a lot of other riders to not try and do too much in the first corner and as a result pinball some other guys so that was the first incident between them in the second restarted the race. That's a little bit of a different story. Because fabrio quechua rose rear tire got squarely heading term one. He was already bobbio was on a relatively wide line. To begin with mark was on the outside and then as was further outside of him. And i think that fabio harare's bike getting unsettled in front of him that caused mark the stand up just a little bit that random in la who was in a pretty precarious place on the outside making it three wide anyway and so that was much more of a racing incident. It wasn't the same type of instance where mark was just trying to make something happen. That wasn't there instead he was reacting to what was there but of course being the second incident kind of just highlighted alessi's frustrations with the first. And that's what he said. After the race in fact. He said he didn't even blame. Mark all that much. He looked to the stuarts with the insinuation there being that the stewards are giving marquez. Too much leeway now like. I said when you watch that overhead shot. It's not nearly as cut and dry as the low shots. So i don't know that they're necessarily should have been in action against mark. I think that the non call was probably the right move. They're considering the situation on the first lap of the race when there are a lot of guys going to that corner at the same time but la show overall does have a valid point. Because if the question here is does marc marquez. Get more leeway from the stewards because he is marc marquez. With the answer to that is pretty simple. Yeah totally does. I mean if you're talking about a young rider or somebody with a reputation like johann zarco. That rider may have gotten a harder. Look we might have gotten the message that the incident was at least under review with marquez. I think a lot more has to happen. And the fact that. La wasn't taken out. He didn't even go off into the gravel that combined with the stewards impression. That a guy who has so many championships probably has full control of his bike. Makes that seem like less of an incident for him then. It would be for a less experienced riders. If that's what she's saying. Yeah i agree. Marc marquez definitely gets more leeway than other riders but apparently al a sh- has a little bit of pull himself from all of his ears on the paddock. Because there is something coming out of those incidence. It probably was in the works already but what happened. Last sunday may have accelerated the process because we got an announcement just today from motogp race direction. That starting this sunday austria. They'll be two new dashboard messages available to send to mow. Gp writers and i think we can nickname these messages the.
People Across Florida Are Marching in Solidarity With Cuba

Cubans have reached a breaking point inside the Communist island and right here in Florida, Scott hunger, health, anxiety and anger spilling over into one another, opening the floodgates of a decades long oppression and emotion. Protests and rallies have popped up all over Florida and support of Cuba and its people. Here's reporter Alexa Lorenzo. This is something that was spontaneous. We've never seen that Dr Luis Martinez Fernandez was born in Havana, a history professor now at U. C. F. He knows well, what's playing out on the island. What the government does is it unleashes these violent fanatics to beat up Cubans who are basically asking for a universal right to protest piece. Fully the communist government has arrested hundreds of protesters restricted Internet access in Cuba, showing you the dictatorship that has dominated for decades. But the question is what's next here? And what is the U. S government doing about it? Where all these people that promise about human rights? Meanwhile, 90 miles from our coastline, human rights get trampled on every day. That's why Cuban Americans in Florida like Alberto Sarmiento are protesting. His father and grandparents fled for freedom, and he wants American politicians to do more to protect the people on the island. We need action in Cuba. Now. U. S. Senator Marco Rubio, a Cuban American has been a staunch opponent of the Cuban government, taking to social media and writing a letter to President Joe Biden, giving him six steps to take a horrific bloodbath is what awaits if action is not taken something like that does not happen.

Milan grab draw at Manchester United
"What happened in the league games today and starting with manchester united's one all draw with me. It means milan will be taking a crucial away. Goal into the second game. Incensio on the eighteenth of march. Paulie shaw said. Afterwards his side were a bit slow in possession. He say's a draw was a fair result. Would you agree john. I wouldn't care. Now melania rob dot brand. Cassie goal was that i thought poundstone hip go away. We will the united us. Right in terms of how slow in possession they. They were really lethargic. They couldn't get going dion by the difference when he came off the bench and scored a fantastic goal fernandez yet. Another assist but that play in general was quite weak was quite slow. I thought on wax. And i've got to say with milan patched upside that that came away from home with six or seven major players injured. I thought they put a real good performance. Should it came away with the win. Within a mind frank the fact that manchester united were home and were against a depleted milan site. Did you expect more from them. Well yes but we know melanie. Sorry manchester united is better. Maybe away from home. When do you don't have to lead the game. I want agree with dawn. I think my gwalior and gyms had two beautiful to to to make manchester united winning that game. I think only for me. A fair result is true. That should have been a penalty for a for milan and kia and the of the day. I think it's it's a. It's a fair. Result is a deserving draw for boss team and nothing much to say. But it's not it's not done for million for the second leg because we know that message. It will be more dangerous away from home that they've been traveled. They will be dangerous away from home. We know how good their away record is but milan were missing some place. What if they come back and then they have them at home to. Do you feel for them. Not fear for both of these. Who's actually going to go ahead and win this game over two legs i was. I was disappointed. I was disappointing. Stray off the bat and so two teams. So that probably didn't help me actually watching again because if you look at a short almost looks like it may have been a decent game. I didn't enjoy this at all. Quite honestly i think i'd rather put neither say disaster. When as opposed to either say deserve the draw so i wasn't my cup of tea whatever to deplete incites lopez. Enjoyable horrible may win hole and rain coming down now for me.

"It's also like you're not nice. You're entitled Yay. You're incredibly entitled and you also are in resentment. What makes you nice like you're actually operating from anger. Yeah not. Nice, at all I'm interested because. I. I feel as though that. I, think the word nerd gets. Really, batted around a lot and I think for me, it really is. Maybe I have just a really broad definition of it, but I'm wondering what it means to you in that I when I. I can tell when I'm getting I feel like it's technically nerdy when I when I get excited about the things that I get excited about that feel niche or feel just like I dove really deep like the things that. I can attribute months-long rabbit holes too like I've been watching in Corinth I've been watching truly every like scummy detective cry movie from like the seventies and eighties, and that's like I'm missing out on other. TV, shows that people are liking because I'm just finding those movies like that feels pretty nerdy, but it doesn't like that specifically, I don't think whatever tone panel at Comic Con, but it feels nerdy does it does it feel like there's a broad definition you feel like. Like it's kind of granular or yet go ahead. Yeah. Absolutely. I. Think like I was saying with. Mark. Mark being like a sports senator people being super into music, which is another one like if you were to talk to a journalist at rolling stone I, find that super nerdy like that. Being able to deep dive. Like you said, I also think a lot of people for actual nerds. It's they'll be like you mean, Geek, it's actually geek the what you're saying. Is You not. mean two different things but Yeah for me. So my introduction I would say like my quote Unquote Nerd Card would be anime and that's because I grew up watching to Nami and then kind of fell into a hole of like fan subs and dubs and like trying to get illegal anime that I could watch here I have Machida tattooed on me and I think a lot of in the anime community a lot of times they're like that's a mainstream anime. I'm also like I don't take it away from Star, wars people. Star. Wars is the most mainstream franchise in history period like you I always say this, but like you can get a trash can of it at target like its mainstream. Wouldn't take that away from the and I'm a star Wars Fan. But like I wouldn't say I wouldn't tell them that they're not because they're into the most mainstream thing ever Yeah, you. Heard on any mainstream thing though right like, yeah. You could be like a plant nerd like be so obsessed with plants and like or technically you're a geek you. Plant Geek. Yet. But it's like you could be. Why does it matter if it's mainstream? We'll because it's still real. One thing Steve. You think that's why I think it's there. One thing that separates them from you. Onto. But my friend, one of my favorite people in this community is Hector Navarro. He is an encyclopedic knowledge of comic books if you ever need and I do I. Hit em up. If I need to if I'm not going to go back and read this comic actor, what is about talk oh? So I can bring this up You know sometimes I'll do that and he only wants to if you're real nerd of your phantom, you'd actually be passionate in what other people to learn about it. You wouldn't get keep it and try to keep them from it. You'd be like Oh my gosh. Let me tell you about this thing you're GonNa, love it, but like I don't understand why they do why they like Oh, you know this thing, you're a piece of shit. Until. Such a he someone who could use all of his knowledge for bad and he doesn't. He's always just like. These are the issues you should check out or like, yes. Like you'd be superintendents. If you like X. Men, you'll love this and the anime world like. So that's how we should be. Yeah. Why I love people like that. Especially, because you know it's funny talking about, yeah. You can't get a star wars trash can, but also there's you know whatever at this point, there's nine. Saga. Movies, their spinoffs, there's stand-alones. There's cartoons I, and if you if you've seen all of Colin wars, does that make you more Than someone WHO's only seen? The the Trilogy Movies Ebb, and also the the enemy thing is really funny too because it's for a while it was so hard to find stuff I think access is so important to just a building a phantom or building awareness of things, and it's such a I don't know my favorite nerds are the ones who are like, Oh, you haven't seen this. Let me get you a copy of it immediately. Yeah, and that's like i. i. that's especially when it's like a hard to find thing I have. I. Have a an animated nerd buddy who is. Great at doing that stuff and I won't I won't say how he's getting them or where she showing them. But but but it's it's. It's just great to be able to to know someone who's like, Oh, I'd love for you to see this. Instead of I can't believe we haven't seen this. Yeah, and I want to say to I I. Adore I. Am Star Wars Fan, I Adore Star Wars, but there are people who like read the the novels. There are people who like you said, they watch all the animated shows and stuff in. So I do think there's different levels to it. But just tired of people act like this is mainstream. This isn't mainstream like who cares you know for me? If, something inspires you dvd like inspired me so much. I don't know why I was. So obsessed with it growing up, but I was I couldn't get enough of it in would read fan fiction of it. I'd look fan. Art. Of It I, you know. Fundation who owns the US versions? Who Does the US versions of it my hosting? GIG? Just because I knew so much about it. So by wow, you know. So it's just like I'm done I. There's too much going on in the world to care about being a real fan or real nerd or whatever. Yeah. Let's not why. Why can't we just like things not put ourselves in specific categories of how we like them. Especially now, because the only thing we can do is like things in our homes. Yeah. Also it's way cooler to like things than not like things like I'm always like how is that? I?.

I got more comments on your hot photo than I've ever gotten on my own hot photos. People were just like she's so hot I. don't even know her she's hot and I was like, yeah, it's so we because I, I was bullied a lot which I've talked about a lot like when I was in middle school. I. I was bullied a ton until I. Never felt hot. Have always been in a lot of therapy I'm still in therapy abandon therapy for over a decade. So it was kind of like this realization where in therapy was like a filter was lifted and all of a sudden. I was like Whoa. I felt like that movie jake or or whatever, what is it like ro? I'm hot well, and now it's just like I feel like thirteen going on thirty when she used. In that body and she's like, Oh, I love that dress because I have these great boost to fill it. was like one day I just realized Oh. Okay. I get to be. You can also I think anyone listening. You can just decide to be hot like you can just be like Fu I don't know if you're allowed to on here F you I'm Pat I don't care what you think in all. My friends have kind of stepped into that where they're just embracing it. Isn't it powerful? It's like. I really relate to that hardcore because I was like A. nerdy kid who really liked. Amphibians. E when I started to realize that I was, I was like very confused by it like I was like, wait what is happening, but then I got scared of being hot because people were mean to meet people are awful. Yeah. I think it's just because you embrace it. It really weird them out, but I've talked about this because it's like when I would like joke I had a really a joke about depression or whatever because. Because I'm just so heavily in it and when I would joke about my body or hating stuff about my body people would be like just like fishing for compliments you know. But then when I would embrace my body and be like look I love my full Luscious Lips I, love how sexy I look than. They would be like you're so full of yourself. So it was like you really can't win I was just like. I, you know live with depression. I'm going to celebrate my body I also, not always gonNA. Be This age, which is something I realized as I got older and older especially in this industry which like prizes youth so much I was like well, each year I'm GonNa get just gonNA accept that I get hotter like I'm just GonNa, put that out. and. Yeah. No. Yeah. I love that. Did you do besides therapy? Is there anything else you do in order to like sort of Own Own near like own your power and own your beauty. Well, what's really fascinating is I I do a lot like I think people think I work out more than I. Actually do actually don't work out very much, but I've been like weightlifting and there's a lot of photos of me where I'm just like jacked and I think that that find that really intimidating or ugly. I have people I was at the Star Wars premiered this past year and I posted a photo myself there. It was like really cool and somebody wrote you have the body of a linebacker and like I'm telling you when they want to tear you down, it just really intimidates people and. So, what I was going to say is I follow a lot of women. I follow a ton of women seeing women, loving themselves, whatever their body type is. I just adore that I think that they are smoking hot whatever their body type is, and so it's just kind of that's what I do is I surround myself with people really build me up and it's like it doesn't matter what my body looks like. But it was a lot of body more when I started to gain a lot of muscle and now it's like I've thick thunder thighs that it used to be made fun of, but it's like people love them and it's yeah. I was just GonNa. Say. I. I love everything. You're saying especially following a lot of women because my favorite.

It's like you can't really young give me no not really gonNA people would just GonNa beg no you the On for one do night. Just just philly working. You know working on this project. I think that's the best thing I can do. Because you know actually coming out with a body of worries like actually really happy with myself much to do as much done already. So it's like. Theo anymore is an Moore's and again I'm just thankful to have something to do. I think that what you're doing now is one of the most perfect things you can do is creating a personal body of work during this time that not only his interest work but there's just a testament to your ability to come up with an idea the challenging to see it through for anyone that's out there who is hiring. I think that's a. That's you know that's always kind of I would be doing like if I wasn't working as the constantly working on. You're working on whatever. Is You John? Because it's kind of frustrating at times because not all people can do that like you can't depending on what you're depending on. What kind of work you do. You can't always make work you know. You can't just spend a couple hours making more than that's I really enjoyed Is something that you can do all the time and you know if you have someone willing to like before aggressive than your coo math. And that's why do a lot of that my spirit time. But even like I've made some made some portraits done when a gain any works at knows actually getting me some like You know who's coming back different in different ways not said offer a couple. Different like competitions or wherever you know in this time. It's like the competitions popping up since like perfect for that but yeah I mean it's easy to get down to not do anything because you have to see a movie but I was always kind of Ohio. Which is you know you have to be has to be something all the time but I just I was guilty when all making something trying to think about something or you can go about making something like a start getting quite before actually started doing pictures and to do something. This is a good time to try and not naive until make note with the idea in mind those Oh you can try and make For anything not was just you know. Obviously you you're you WanNa do for you firstly cord thing but yeah you know have something. You're happy with snow not running in the same time. Has You know why not if you've been working hard before this anyways like he's I have like a couple of months to sit back even just use the tank to think of what you can. Do you know when you get to normally what you can do? The Malak Walkman that I ask. Each guest is asked to recommend another photographer and it can be anyone someone. You've long admired her someone. You've recently discovered who that photographer being. I think it'd be filled Why because he has he was one of the first people. I saw that blurred the lines between documentary and staged I remember seeing Hustler's and I bought the Duke. Confused the I I remember spending a day going through the pictures just studying a while. The hell he done with the lights and everything was just Cool it was like. Oh my God when you read it before but what about you know? The idea is always a documentary. The resell like this. Ah Crazy I was like the bag if it was even better because they had pictures of you know because I didn't have any money time and didn't have great equipment still don't really but like the back. The his his tests shows Polaroid's and polaroid can see where he's polite lights light series using and was just using little speed lights. Which will doctors on? That was the moment where I was like. God He's done he's made all of this was with just now like he's got the same thing you know Rhythm it makes think like you know there's not much of an excuse you know you can never blame equipment if you know what we're to do with it. I think that was so important to learn flat nose so nice because even watching him speak about it. I'll listen to speak about it. He he said Again I made so many mistakes in that you know. I didn't know what to Payment Flash Flash you know when you look at the pictures on where where mistakes you know because I would love to know what his you know what he thought were mistakes but yeah no so yeah. He's freaky. I've really enjoyed the conversation so much. Thank you know. Lovely invasiveness yes. Sorry my voice crack the whole thing. Sorry.

"Why I have just a few like procedural questions I would like a charge and then that's contrasted with a working social worker who we ride along with out on a basically a well child visit. There's been a report of domestic violence. Where foster child to staying and we get to walk into that apartment with her watch. Her open all the cabinets watcher. Make sure there's food in the fridge. Please okay so what I need to do. Now is just a welfare track so I need to check out the house and the in the refrigerator. Your home for food. So I'm gonNA open this in your mind. Okay we're here commenting on what she's looking for. She's looking for signs of health and thriving and baby fat and and we see her. Turn on all the faucets in the house and it just seems like somebody doing their job. Well you know versus hearing this phone call with somebody who basically doesn't WanNa talk about even the systemic failure that led to this little boy's death. How did you get to go on that ride along? I mean I found myself wondering that viewer like that. Seems like it would be incredibly difficult to get that kind of access Brian. It was very difficult. Actually the most difficult part was getting any kind of access to dcfs. Or the Board of supervisors. I think it's probably important to note that they declined to talk to us. Or or anybody from the Board of supervisors which was really frustrating because of how big this case was with cable and that while we were filming this there were also a series of rapid series of of other deaths in the same area with very similar circumstances and their refusal. Talk to US was was pretty. I was was the was the biggest hurdle we had And but in this limited way we talked to them for I think it would be a year and a half or so Eventually they said we could go out and and go on a ride along. And you know it's important to note that I mean Garett just said this but this is a very difficult job and these people are amazing for dedicating the time and energy that they put into this. They certainly don't do it for the money. And so you know if done well. This is a really really critical function so I did want to put those things close to each other to understand and to contrast you know the various people that are engaged in this. Can you talk a little bit about how the privatization of some of these services changes the landscape? This is a story. We hear a lot around. You know the privatization of prisons around the country. But I don't think people think a lot about the privatization of the delivery of services. Essential Services like child welfare services. Yeah I mean Government agencies all over the place are involved in what they called private public partnerships. Where some of the things that I think. The public believes are being carried out by government employees like the processing of people who need their welfare benefits like the processing of people who need food stamps and other services it turns out that these things are actually carried out by companies. Like the one you see in the series which is called Maximus. It's a multibillion dollar all over the world and from every place from Saudi Arabia to the U. K. Two right here in the United States with like such a dystopia name to write companies like thinking about it doesn't you couldn't make up a worse like more dystopia and sounding name for over a company. That's whose decisions affect people in such a personal way. You know doesn't exactly exactly exude. You know something that's designed for the public good and and you know and as you see in their own documents that there's a very high priority placed on profit making in this assessment report that maximus carried out on behalf of Maryland regarding foster children. And how the state can obtain resources from foster children assessment refers to foster children as a revenue generating mechanism. I'm curious Garrett. You know you were the one For whom this name? Gabriel Fernandez jumped off the page and really started the ball rolling on what became a story of tremendous national importance. But it's also an incredible tragedy and I'm wondering what of this story are you still carrying with you as you continue your work? I know that you're working on different projects and and you're at Berkeley now. You're still carrying this with you. Yeah I mean you can't you can't let go of this. I mean the you know unfortunately as you see the at the end of the series the fatalities have continued I'm continuing to look at some of the major reasons why they're continuing to happen. And I had really made it a priority to try to look at child welfare from a number of different angles. You know there's a lot more going on than child fatality so I you know it's really important to also be understanding of the situations where children are too quickly removed from their parents. And you know that happens in Los Angeles as well it. Just because in this instance. They didn't act nearly quickly. Enough doesn't mean the same agency isn't moving way too zealously and another case just a short distance away you know. These are systems that way too often go unseen in Los Angeles and you know in big cities across the country. One out of seven children are reported to the child abuse hotline by Age Five and Los Angeles is chop protective services. Agency is almost as big as the LAPD. I mean think about how many stories and and news reports you've seen about an agency like the LAPD. But I would argue that chop protective services has you know it's touching this enormous section of our community and we are deploying thousands and thousands of case workers every single day. And we just don't see what they're doing enough Way Too much of this happens in secrecy and this is a. This is one of the biggies of my entire career. I mean I. Will you know th th to treat this topic seriously? It requires years and years of of work you know we're continuing to see very significant breakdowns and CPS agencies across the country We all know that fatalities are occurring at a much higher rate than they should be and figuring out why and being able to tell with granular detail. What's taking place takes a Lotta time and once you realize that you're able to do it in cases like this one You you feel a certain responsibility not to walk away. You feel the same Brian absolutely and I would extend that to all of our crew in all of our production team that worked on this. Yeah this was in the typical project in any way I think it stuck with everybody really powerful really emotionally. Intense is something about Gable story just provoked deepest the deepest of interest in connection and people Right off the Bat O'Brien. I'll tell you as a viewer. That's exactly how I'm hooking away from this film. The trials of Gabriel Fernandez is fascinating incredibly compelling gutting And I will carry it with me for a long time Brian and Garett thank you so much for taking the time to talk to me about this film. Thank you very much really appreciate it. And that's it for this week's episode. Next month we have director. Liz Garba Saen the talk about her. First scripted feature film lost girls until then.

"In this case on record you have all of these key people who are actively involved in the case in myriad ways. How did that work did you? Did you talk to them after The Gary Case. How did that all come together? We talked to a lot of them while it was going on. And then and then of course some some after the fact you know. Gabriel story really touched a lot of people and it sticks with people some of the first responders that were involved in trying to save Gabriel. Imagine what they go through on a day to day basis over twenty years and and they all said this was the most moving case that they've ever been involved with and and it's not closed yet and I think once people understood what we were doing and the story we wanted to tell you know they. They wanted to to talk about this. They needed to talk about it in some ways and I found that very very powerful one of the ways that the story advances really and a lot of the drama. In the way that you tell the story in the documentary Brian is through the coverage of the trial ours. Trial and there's really interesting legal machinations that take place at originally Pearl are. We're supposed to be sitting there together. Being tried by two separate juries. That didn't happen so he ended up having his own individual trial in. You had unbelievably at least to me. When we're I live. There's a period of time during which jurors are not allowed to speak to the media after they've served but you have incredible access to a number of jurors that sat in on that trial including a holdout juror who in both phases of the trial had to be turned like had to have his mind changed. Do you know what it was that ended up changing juror number seven's mind ultimately Both in the guilty to first degree or second degree phase and in the penalty phase of the trial. I found him. The holdout juror really fascinating because he is Very Analytical Guy. He was You Know He. I think had training as an engineer. he told me a story. I don't think we cut it out of the series but he told us a story when he had. I immigrated to the United States that he was during the Nixon impeachment hearings and that he was moved that even the president was you know a bound by the law which I found really interesting He just thought look this guy. He did this a horrific thing but he deserves us in a careful way looking over every single detail to make sure that that's exactly right and eventually The rest of the jurors convinced him to go that direction in the second penalty phase. He was also hold out on that the lone holdout on whether or not to give us our the death penalty and I think he had a kind of analytical approach to that as well that to to put him life in prison was not as practical as giving the death penalty. I think one of the things that makes this case. Stand out and one of the reasons why it became part of a national conversation The arrest of the four employees of dcfs who serve swirled around Gabriel's case. I found myself feeling conflicted about their specific culpability. Especially when you compare it to the culpability of other people other mandatory reporters other people who had contact with Pearl When Gabriel was living with her I'm wondering Garrett I'm not GonNa ask you to take a side on where you land on this but it is complicated right to think about the fact that these four people who were in a system that you reported out is broken are being prosecuted specifically in connection to this crime. It's one of the I think it's one of the hardest questions In the whole case I mean I think everybody who who looks at this case. Also lates between having empathy and sympathy for each of them but also recognizes that. They had a legal duty to this child. They were really the only way that he was going to be able to get out of that dangerous situation. And so this is the type of question where very smart reasonable empathetic people can come down on both sides. You know during your interviews. I heard Some of these case workers talking about certain cases as being linear cut and dry not thinking it was particularly complicated And you know could be handled through regular procedure but has the viewer I mean I think you're interspersed reminders. Of what exactly it is. We're talking about. We're talking about a boy who was tortured and beaten to death. It is hard to balance the sort of logistical wrote. -Ness of that office talk with what is actually happening in people's homes. You know what I'm you know what I mean by that. Yeah I think so. This is Bryan again. I think this is one of the reasons why we really we really couch. The story from the perspective of Gabriel into tried to get him into this as much as possible. This is a real person that that lived in the high desert north of Los Angeles and that came in contact with all of these different agencies and somehow his case and his story just pointed at all the fishers and all the problems in this system right now so I think I understand what you mean the the policy discussion. You know that's going on and and the discussion about you know funding and and WHO's the culpability? And all that stuff is sometimes a little disconnected from the actual human cost on the ground. And I think that's why we wanted Gabriel's presence in this series from the first episode to the last and I think in this is Garrett. I think human story of the case workers so interesting I mean. These are people who they're in a position that lends itself to some of the most extraordinary types of compassion fatigue. I mean they. Are you know every day? They're businesses child abuse and they have so many children needing their attention they have so many mandated tasks to carry out and they're also carrying it out in a department that you know let's be real is not performing at a very high level. It was just a couple years before. Gabriel died that the department did one of its rare studies taking a close look at how these cases were actually going and they found that only two thirds of the cases. Did they ever interview the child alone? Who was the alleged victim of abuse? They also did incredibly shallow investigations. On average fewer than two witnesses were interviewed for each particular call to the child abuse hotline saying that kid was in danger. So when you when you're looking around the office and seeing everybody else doing investigations and a quality of work. That isn't very good you. You know you can't help but imagine that that brings you down as well. Yeah you know the interview that we have with Gregory Merit. Who is a supervisor here? Who was facing could have been facing up to ten years in prison. You know I think that when we look at his story. I hope we don't blink at the failures that were here I hope we don't ever shy away from the clear problems that that happened. In the case of Gabriel but I also think that when you hear him talk and hear him his version and tell his story you know. I think you may have some sympathy for that. You're saying that you're ultimately responsible for about two hundred fifty to three hundred. I think the most children I had at any one time was about two hundred eighty children. How DIFFICULT IS INSECURE? Track of that many cases you can't that's why you have social workers keeping track of that many cases and you don't know every case that you ought to only because the fact that there's so many and my workload was so immense. Nina when you hear his story directly you'll have some sympathy for it Again not that. He wasn't at fault or were that there weren't problems here There clearly were. And then there's separate question is where to those problems go into actual criminality and so we ask all of that. But I I do think that the complexity of of good and evil applies here too. Well I think one of the most beautifully constructed parts of the documentary is episode. Five opens with you know we hear that investigator from the. Da's office calling pat clements and how. She's immediately so angry in defensive. When you call the bill I would like to speak with you regarding your prior employment by La.

"She saw change in him in the last few weeks and months of his life you also have his teacher incredibly moving interviews about the suffering that you know. They saw this little boy going through the first incident that I became aware that something was a normal to start asking me a couple of questions. Ten normal for your mom with a belt on like whoa yeah. Some parents do that and then he said you know but is is a normal to bleed. I'm just it's it's really interesting to me to think about. Framing this huge story around this truly horrific case. How important was it to you that the audience understand who? Gabriel Fernandez was beyond his being a victim of torture. It was really important to hear the voice of the teacher and what she had seen in what she had thought on what she had tried to do. And and one of the most heartbreaking interviews that we did I think was Kiara and astor a few questions and let her tell us what she thought in what she went through and what. She was an what she saw. He was nice to other people especially students in class. But that's until he started to be an APP say he was telling the students in this class that his mom's boyfriend was hitting on him. And that's when you just started being kind of a little bit me because what was going on so that that part was really really important just to understand. Who Gabriel Fernandez? Was this eight year old boy in the high desert north of Los Angeles And during his life his voice was ignored. There are only a handful of people that saw and heard and thought about who he was. As a person I would put the security guard in to that category. The person that tried to raise the alarm At a sort of welfare office that Pro Fernandez had gone into with with the rest of the kids to that there were so many chances to intervene in that weren't taken and so putting him central to the story into the series I think was critical. Gabriel had two. Other Siblings Ezekiel and Virginia. But why do you think? Pearl any sorrow focused on Gabriel for the abuse so we talked to a couple of experts in the film that that described As sort of scapegoat process in which oftentimes the kind of the younger or the kind of child is perceived as weaker in some way Often becomes a focus of abuse and And so we try to unpack that a little bit in the in the series as well just to expand on that a little bit more I've looked at a lot of child. Fatality cases an pattern. You often see is that the abuses focused on one of the children disproportionately and it's oftentimes the child who was separated from the caregiver for the longest period of time. And it's also the child who expresses a little bit of rejection following reunification and we know in Gabriel's case he fell into both of those categories. The siblings had had remained with per offer much greater portion of their lives. And when Gabriel was reunified with Perot after she took him back from the grandparents. He said that he wanted to go back to his grandparents. And that is often times. A risk factor because the parents don't have a way of dealing with that rejection and they sometimes lash out in a way that can be Abusive email. I imagine that as you were making this film and even geared as you're writing your stories for the Times I mean there is always this temptation and we saw it. Play out in some of the rhetoric in court to take People like a sorrow and Pearl and just say monsters right like unmitigated evil. And it's also I think. Difficult to overcome that temptation to just tell a two dimensional story about the abuser. And you really I think in this documentary make a very good faith attempt Through some of the witness testimony we see at trial. And then some of the exploration you do about Pearl's own life to not excuse but sort of flesh out fuller portrait's of these adults. Brian can you talk about that? A little bit. And and if you found that challenging Yeah first of all. Thank you for noticing that we did spend a lot of time trying to understand Adjara Aguirre and Pearl Fernandez and taking everything we could find in court. Records were There was an interview with. I think therapist at one point in this question of evil which came up in the courtroom. You know there's evil in this courtroom and it's sitting right over there and this notion of good and evil that some people are just Kinda born evil. Did you know that was something that kind of emerged as something? We wanted to look at it and think about that a little bit and you're right not not excusing it. But understanding where Pearl came from the challenges she faced and the difficult that she was going through At the time was really really important I think to get a full picture of this Same with the sorrow Gary. Some of us are gear as family wouldn't talk to us So we tried to include what was presented in court that fleshed out his personality. His life Who he was as a person we try to present as much of that material as we could so there is this question about where it is such a horrific act come from what causes people to do something like this and and we didn't think it was simple. One Line that we have at the very end of the peace is the question you know where where does evil come from and we have people speculating that yeah I mean there are times in? Which evil is there is evil in individuals but oftentimes? It's the it's the result of a system that is broken and they outcome is evil but not necessarily the individual components of that system. And you do see evil or child abuse doctrine. You're also seen anger and frustration and poverty. And what am I GONNA do? And I'M GONNA hit my kid because I'm frustrated but I believe the ultimate evil in this world is knowing what's raw seeing what's wrong and looking away now. It didn't seem like a sorrow Gary had been Arrested or tried for any crime like this before he met Pearl and it seemed like some in the documentary were intimating that it was then dynamic of the relationship with Pearl that was part of the recipe of him committing this crime Is that what you're reporting showed to Garrett that he was you know for lack of better word clean before this or was there more to the story there that we didn't see in the film I was never able to find any instances of past history of violence or any criminal history to SRO. It seemed like the the record for parole was darker much earlier and more and much more pronounced and you know obviously sorrow had established a clean enough record to be able to work with the elderly in a in a retirement home and he was also able to pass a licensing test to become a security guard in California so for intents and purposes he had a he had a clean record before he met payroll and he was liked. I mean we saw that in the testimony in the sentencing phase like the people who knew him from his work at the nursing home like really liked him and they said he was a good and kind and patient person. Yeah the people that did talk to us is Brian about. Nato did describe him in very kind of affectionate terms. You know. It's it's probably important to know too. That was from an early part of his life. That there had been D- D- we didn't find people in the few years before this before the incident A lot of those people didn't talk to us or we couldn't find them That sort of thing but the does seem like there was some affection for him as he worked in the in the various jobs he had Brian you mentioned earlier that you started making this film before the case had been completely adjudicated which honestly surprises me. It doesn't surprise me. In terms of the fact that I can see the access the courtroom footage it seems very a contemporaneous what was going on. But what surprises me About hearing that is the access you got to all of the key characters to help. Tell the story episode one opens in such a moving way with this nurse. Who tells us about the evening? That Gabriel Fernandez was brought into the emergency room and the documentation if his injuries. You also have Jonathan Hitomi. The prosecutor.

"This was the case that has followed me from that night. It's still hard to believe. Two people did all those horrible things to him. Gabriel Fernandez was at the time of his death. Eight years old. That was my friend in a really caught because it was his parents who took his life. Hi Brian thanks so much for joining me. Thank you for having us and Gareth arrive. Thanks so much for talking with me. It's great to be here. I really wanted to just bring one thing right up front here because when I was reading about this documentary before I started watching it I was somewhat girding myself for a difficult watch which I don't WanNa say it isn't it definitely is that but it's also incredibly compelling Dare I say kind of binge -able because of the way that you chose to thread this story together. Brian has the director. Can you just talk about how you approached making a series that people would want to watch and binge when it is built around such a difficult story? Yeah well I guess it kind of goes back to how I found out about the story myself. I found out about Garrett's work. He was working at the investigative reporting studios in Berkeley formerly with the La Times and and he was working with the friend of Mine Bergman and they basically said look you should really look at this story and we were able to get into the courtroom and we're able to start filming Pretty soon after that just inside the courtroom in the trial of a sorrow gay and it was immediately apparent that this was a really really compelling case just as the details were coming out in the courtroom. The story of Gabriel pointed to so many other bigger picture issues that As the mystery started getting kind of deeper and deeper about this I understood that this was something that would kind of fuel you know it would take some time to figure out and would just be more and more interesting as we did and more and more relevant as we went along Garrett. How was it that this story jumped out at you and you were able to really report it out. I mean we see in the documentary. That sort of The downsizing or moving of the L. A. Times there's a lot in it about the importance of reporters doing what you were doing at the time looking sort of beyond the log lines and the reports that are put out by the PR Latkes at all these government agencies. Did you know immediately that there was something there? When you saw this name on that page I knew there was pulling GonNa be something there and that it was going to be incredibly difficult to get through by this time. I had been covering child fatalities and you know all the other issues that face an agency like the Department of Children and Family Services for a period of time. I knew at this point that a child who had been under the agency's watch died about you know two or three times a month. They had a case like this and I also knew that when a homicide takes place with child and La about half the time there's dcfs History Department of Children and family services so it wasn't a complete shot in the dark that there was some dcfs history in this. But I also knew that getting like a a really detailed and specific chronology of what had happened was going to be incredibly difficult. There's so much. Secrecy surrounding these cases they have confidentiality laws that were established to Preserve Children's privacy. Which you know which I think we can. All agree should exist to some degree but when a child dies all of those confidentiality rules are enlisted for a new purpose which is to oftentimes hide. What government workers had done in a case so the essential report as you saw in the in the series was very very tightly held the pathway to getting any public records related to this death was going to be long arduous and and frankly was going to take so many more months that people's interest in the case would probably have waned by then and so it was. I just knew it was going to be really really hard to figure out what happened here. What are the caseworker? Stay what happened the next day and building that together you know to be honest caught me by surprise that I was to do it. It's probably worth noting here. That part of this is the result of fairly courageous whistle-blower as well Which a lot of stores have that people who are concerned on the inside that come forward and at risk to themselves and this is a case of that as well. I can't think the sources enough I mean they went to such extraordinary lengths to Get the story out another's over the years and at very significant personal unprofessional. Risk documentary opens in this case with a hard look at this board of Commissioners. I'd love to hear your take on why you think you know these entities and the way government is run and dollars are allocated and decisions are made. Can you just talk a little bit about reporting on that institution? Sure so I mean I think Los Angeles County government is one of the least understood government entities in the country and also one of the most important. It's a county government that you know serves ten million people. These members of the Board of supervisors are responsible for the you know. Essentially the safety net. You know there. There's only five elected officials who governed this over thirty billion dollar enterprise and I. I dare to say that you know. I think if you asked people on the street who their supervisor was it would take a long time to find someone who knew there known as the five kings and Queens of Los Angeles but people don't really have a very clear understanding of what they do they. Typically you know it's been a long time Sense any of them went onto further elected office after they were associated with The board partly because there have been so many problems with the safety net in La. I mean we've had just incredible breakdowns in the public hospitals which are governed by The supervisors we've had tremendous problems clearly in the Department of Children and Family Services and It's the type of thing that so important that it works bright but it's not the kind of thing where you get a lot of news coming out of them because You know the the meetings are incredibly long. They're boring they start out with a bunch of awards that they're giving to county employees and all the really important stuff like You know the child fatalities that are taking place or the fact that someone died on the floor of the public hospital and nobody was carrying for that person. Those things typically are not put on the agenda and you know the important decision making happens behind closed doors Garrett. It was really heartbreaking to me that it seems like Gabriel. Had a chance I mean his life you know began his. His mom didn't want to raise him so he was living with his uncle and then with his grandparents and it seemed like he was doing okay but then larger forces have combined to change his circumstances. Can you just talk about what some of those forces were like? How did these forces combine that? He ended up living there while. I think it's because the authorities took a hands off attitude for so long. I mean you know originally. He was living with his grandparents and formerly. Because Perot is off doing other things and then according to court testimony. She wanted the welfare. That would come from having another child in the house and when she went to retrieve Gabriel. Gabriel's grandparents called the police Said that she was an unsafe person and that they wanted the police to intervene.
