  • 2:17
    maybe more mm-hmm well our wishes come
  • 2:22
    true at least mine has yeah I just want
  • 2:25
    to do another show every I breathe I'm
  • 2:26
    like we get to do it I'm still alive to
  • 2:29
    do a show I got another show another
  • 2:31
    show to go I'm very very happy and Tina
  • 2:37
    and I the keeper we had dinner with the
  • 2:41
    former New York banker and his wife
  • 2:42
    Friday night yes I come from the coal
  • 2:47
    mine where the canary has spoken to me
  • 2:50
    the canary said well there's four eight
  • 2:52
    four to three topics three big topics
  • 2:54
    and he was I think I think I think he
  • 3:02
    may they both may either been there
  • 3:04
    significantly before us well maybe they
  • 3:07
    had they took a course or rosters I
  • 3:10
    think they were loose in the former New
  • 3:13
    York bankers literally you got it you
  • 3:15
    got to jump in right away so first of
  • 3:17
    all he's like ha ha ha ha Trump did it
  • 3:21
    so what do you mean he screwed New York
  • 3:25
    what are you talking about so everyone's
  • 3:28
    all in a tizzy about the to finally get
  • 3:30
    my attention
  • 3:32
    ones in a tizzy about the 2.8 billion
  • 3:35
    dollars a
  • 3:35
    taksim deficit and and he's telling me
  • 3:40
    he's like that's because of the Trump
  • 3:42
    tax as I said are you just figuring this
  • 3:44
    out said you didn't realize that the
  • 3:47
    state and local tax is capped that that
  • 3:49
    wasn't to screw New York in California
  • 3:51
    I guess he hadn't thought about it oh
  • 3:54
    you're talking about that cap yeah yeah
  • 3:57
    yeah the cap is what everyone ignores I
  • 3:59
    mean because we were right on to it
  • 4:01
    almost immediately because we have one
  • 4:02
    of our producers as a local superstar
  • 4:06
    CPA it works in the Bay Area I believe
  • 4:08
    the anonymous gay as we call it now
  • 4:11
    another anonymous gay well the anonymous
  • 4:14
    gay I know is the is the accountant oh
  • 4:16
    they're not as gay I know is a is a
  • 4:18
    lawyer but okay well maybe we should
  • 4:20
    introduce
  • 4:21
    to each other no but this guy is told
  • 4:28
    it's right off the bat there goes a
  • 4:29
    zephyr tolls right off the bat on time
  • 4:32
    to him - because of this cap on property
  • 4:37
    taxes it's gonna it's really is a tax on
  • 4:42
    the rich yeah but nobody wanted to bring
  • 4:44
    it up none of these analysts wanted to
  • 4:46
    bring it up none of these superstars
  • 4:47
    none of these pundits not these people
  • 4:49
    on the network's wanted to bring it up
  • 4:51
    because it would not it would be against
  • 4:53
    their narrative you know how we're
  • 4:54
    trying to save them buddy
  • 4:55
    no the rich are generally burdened with
  • 4:58
    a lot of property yeah and they pay a
  • 5:01
    lot of property tax all what a burden
  • 5:04
    they used to be able to write it off now
  • 5:05
    you can yeah exactly
  • 5:07
    so this apparently wasn't surprise to
  • 5:08
    everybody if they listened to the show
  • 5:14
    they wouldn't have gotten so screwed
  • 5:16
    okay second thing he said and we weren't
  • 5:23
    really talking polity he was just
  • 5:24
    blurting stuff out across the table okay
  • 5:27
    yeah and I always and I was drinking too
  • 5:30
    so alright remember I'm taking notes
  • 5:33
    under the table like I'm gonna forget
  • 5:35
    this he says just you know Stacey Abrams
  • 5:39
    is no Maxine Waters I said what yes
  • 5:46
    Stacey Abrams did you see did you see
  • 5:47
    her did you see here to give the the the
  • 5:50
    reply to the State of the Union see yeah
  • 5:51
    of course I did he made on the green
  • 5:53
    screen tada ha she's smart man she says
  • 5:57
    and he kept saying she's know Maxine
  • 5:59
    Waters said why do you say that well
  • 6:02
    just you know on the show it's like
  • 6:03
    eight we don't see every black woman as
  • 6:05
    it as a moron Maxine Waters even were
  • 6:08
    we're not racist
  • 6:10
    so I finally calm him down over that
  • 6:13
    he's like all yeah no it's it's all
  • 6:14
    agitated yeah well I mean I guess he's
  • 6:17
    trying to what he's trying to give me a
  • 6:19
    message and I appreciate you and he
  • 6:21
    doesn't listen a lot to the show I don't
  • 6:23
    think I think he checks or sometimes the
  • 6:24
    time and so you know his feeling is
  • 6:28
    probably well I like Adam you know his
  • 6:29
    racist and and
  • 6:33
    black women dogs blacks everything so I
  • 6:37
    guess I have to tell him again to make
  • 6:39
    sure he understands Stacy why Abrams is
  • 6:42
    no Maxine Waters I know I said you know
  • 6:45
    she's a she wrote an article yes oh the
  • 6:48
    article in foreign policy magazine that
  • 6:51
    was brilliant
  • 6:52
    I said one where she says identity
  • 6:54
    politics brings us closer to get she's
  • 6:56
    smart be on the lookout for her now the
  • 6:59
    reason I bring it up today is because he
  • 7:01
    is he travels in circles you know he
  • 7:04
    travels in circles where they are not
  • 7:06
    are circle where they don't know and
  • 7:07
    maybe don't care that the New York state
  • 7:09
    tax real estate taxes were not
  • 7:12
    deductible or not not for $10,000 but
  • 7:16
    also he's like Beto remember he was all
  • 7:19
    over Beto very early on better better
  • 7:21
    better better better yeah but it's not
  • 7:23
    Beto it is Stacey Abrams and he says
  • 7:26
    were presidents now Chuck's gonna run
  • 7:29
    her for Senate he thinks but it could
  • 7:31
    get so crazy that they could swoop her
  • 7:33
    in depending on how things go I know
  • 7:37
    brother and confirmed for your
  • 7:41
    information she is a member of the
  • 7:45
    Council on Foreign Relations of course
  • 7:48
    that's what she wrote in the magazine s
  • 7:51
    it's generally reserved for those people
  • 7:53
    it's a signal it's for signaling a here
  • 7:56
    we well she's lead is read between the
  • 7:59
    lines you'll get the picture not go out
  • 8:00
    do your job well good so we need to keep
  • 8:04
    our eye on Stacey Abrams because she is
  • 8:06
    Aniston did you say to him why do you
  • 8:09
    why is a woman some random black
  • 8:11
    politician in Georgia a member of the
  • 8:13
    Council on Foreign Relations no I didn't
  • 8:16
    know that I didn't have this information
  • 8:18
    at the time will not use it next time
  • 8:20
    but the third thing was what kind of
  • 8:23
    caught me off guard trumps going down
  • 8:27
    with this Bezos thing it's over what
  • 8:31
    it's over Trump's going down with the
  • 8:34
    bees OHS thing what are you talking
  • 8:37
    about and there's this theory that this
  • 8:42
    entire fraca
  • 8:44
    over the dick pics that the National
  • 8:47
    Enquirer or more precisely American
  • 8:50
    media Incorporated has and has
  • 8:53
    apparently been blackmailing Jeff Bezos
  • 8:56
    over that if they find out that I'm just
  • 9:00
    giving you his version if if law
  • 9:03
    enforcement discovers that this was done
  • 9:06
    illegally oh yeah this is a big this way
  • 9:09
    there's a couple of things so first the
  • 9:11
    National Enquirer made a deal with the
  • 9:13
    Justice Department after the payoff of
  • 9:16
    Karen McDougal mcdougal for $150,000
  • 9:19
    yeah that and they made a deal that
  • 9:21
    didn't have to admit any fault but they
  • 9:25
    also would need not be accused of
  • 9:27
    political motivations and they have I
  • 9:31
    think it's a three year period if they
  • 9:33
    break any law then American media
  • 9:37
    basically is over then I guess though
  • 9:40
    the Justice Department would come in and
  • 9:42
    bankrupt him and God knows what so
  • 9:44
    somehow the and he and he was just went
  • 9:47
    on about you know be so heavily secured
  • 9:49
    you know he's got the best security
  • 9:50
    details not did he sitting dick takes to
  • 9:53
    girlfriend I mean do you know how many
  • 9:55
    places that cabana if they thought not
  • 9:58
    could be the girlfriend yeah but here's
  • 10:01
    where the mainstream media is trying to
  • 10:03
    tie this in that his the other woman
  • 10:08
    shall we say Sanchez I think her last
  • 10:10
    name is that her brother has links to
  • 10:14
    Roger stone don't think of your Roger
  • 10:19
    Scott stone thing no no no no no but you
  • 10:25
    know anyways just going on like this
  • 10:28
    comes out it'll be over it'll be
  • 10:30
    obstruction of justice all I'm like no
  • 10:33
    way suborning something or others more
  • 10:37
    like it so it isn't any of what is
  • 10:39
    happening now is these those dreamers
  • 10:42
    these dreamers and how they have to this
  • 10:44
    everything has to relate to everything
  • 10:45
    has to relate to Toronto everything has
  • 10:47
    to have something to do with him going
  • 10:48
    down well this and you I'd like you to
  • 10:51
    check with your Lib Joe friends to see
  • 10:53
    if they're picking up on the same vibe
  • 10:55
    I'm sure
  • 10:57
    but you know what Jeff Bezos did for
  • 10:59
    those of you who didn't who didn't I
  • 11:01
    have a couple clips oh good let's let's
  • 11:03
    do that then let's say you have a
  • 11:04
    background or so we can really
  • 11:05
    understand both of them our background
  • 11:07
    errs there are two versions and they're
  • 11:08
    pretty much they're not the same ad
  • 11:10
    because there's a different angle on
  • 11:11
    each one you play one or the other or
  • 11:13
    both but Bezos and texts CBS this is the
  • 11:17
    basic story Amazon founder Jeff Bezos
  • 11:19
    claims the owner of the National
  • 11:21
    Inquirer tried to blackmail him here's
  • 11:24
    Tony Tecopa am I the publisher of
  • 11:27
    National Enquirer is on the defense
  • 11:29
    after being publicly accused of
  • 11:31
    threatening to run lewd photos of the
  • 11:33
    world's richest man Amazon CEO Jeff
  • 11:35
    Bezos and TV host Lauren Sanchez a woman
  • 11:39
    he was having an affair with in a blog
  • 11:41
    post on Thursday Bezos revealed emails
  • 11:43
    he says are from am i threatening to
  • 11:45
    publish compromising images including at
  • 11:48
    least two naked selfies of him
  • 11:50
    Bezos says it was part of a politically
  • 11:52
    motivated hit which the publisher denies
  • 11:55
    wired editor-in-chief Nick Thompson the
  • 11:58
    tech no question is how the heck did the
  • 12:00
    National Enquirer get these pictures
  • 12:02
    because of the allegations of threats
  • 12:04
    Bezos made public am I may have violated
  • 12:07
    the terms of a non-prosecution deal
  • 12:09
    inked with federal officials after
  • 12:11
    investigation into campaign finance
  • 12:13
    violations am i admitted it paid Karen
  • 12:16
    McDougal a hundred and fifty thousand
  • 12:18
    dollars to silence her claims of an
  • 12:20
    affair with Donald Trump before he was
  • 12:22
    president sources tell CBS News
  • 12:24
    prosecutors in the Southern District of
  • 12:26
    New York are looking into the
  • 12:27
    allegations made by Bezos that am i
  • 12:29
    chief david pecker is trying to extort
  • 12:31
    and blackmail him am i said it acted
  • 12:34
    lawfully and said it's launching its own
  • 12:36
    probe to promptly and thoroughly
  • 12:38
    investigate the claims actor Terry Crews
  • 12:41
    tweeted on Friday that a.m. I tried to
  • 12:43
    silence him and journalist Ronan furrow
  • 12:45
    says he also faced blackmail efforts
  • 12:48
    from a.m. I'm for his part Bezos hired a
  • 12:50
    security expert to uncover how his texts
  • 12:53
    were accessed
  • 12:54
    he's Jeff Bezos he probably knows good
  • 12:56
    cybersecurity so the question of how the
  • 12:59
    pictures got from Bezos or Sanchez to
  • 13:02
    the National Enquirer has huge political
  • 13:05
    and possibly geopolitical consequences
  • 13:08
    it is the Bezos divorce worth tens of
  • 13:10
    billions of dollars is not yet finalized
  • 13:13
    and Rena Hina's wife of 25 years
  • 13:15
    announced their separation after the
  • 13:18
    Inquirer said it was about to release
  • 13:19
    text between Bezos and Sanchez everyone
  • 13:22
    wants to know how they got those tax is
  • 13:24
    it and you and I were like gives a crap
  • 13:27
    you know I don't think about how they
  • 13:29
    got the text if we can find out that
  • 13:32
    there's a link to Trump that's going
  • 13:33
    down actually this clip means a lot more
  • 13:36
    I'm glad you did it because I didn't
  • 13:38
    think in those terms that they're
  • 13:40
    thinking this is like a bigger deal than
  • 13:41
    it is first of all let's talk about a
  • 13:44
    couple of well actually we can play I'd
  • 13:46
    like to I'd like to hear this the second
  • 13:48
    clip yes then you really need to discuss
  • 13:50
    this so people have some understanding
  • 13:52
    of where the National Enquirer fits in
  • 13:55
    the scheme of things yeah so I want I do
  • 13:57
    want to also want to talk about mcdougal
  • 13:59
    and then Farrow but okay the world's
  • 14:02
    richest man Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos has
  • 14:05
    publicly accused the owner of the
  • 14:08
    National Enquirer
  • 14:09
    of extortion and blackmail Bezos
  • 14:12
    recently hired a private investigator to
  • 14:15
    determine how the tabloid newspaper
  • 14:17
    obtained private text messages between
  • 14:20
    him and his lover and whether the papers
  • 14:22
    actions were politically motivated for
  • 14:25
    years the national Enquirer's top editor
  • 14:28
    David pecker has had a close
  • 14:29
    relationship with President Trump who
  • 14:32
    frequently attacks Bezos in the
  • 14:34
    Washington Post which Bezos owns on
  • 14:37
    Thursday night a reporter at The
  • 14:39
    Washington Post told MSNBC bezos's
  • 14:42
    security and legal team believed the
  • 14:45
    private X might have been accessed by a
  • 14:47
    quote government entity national
  • 14:50
    Enquirer's parent company American media
  • 14:53
    he responded to bezos's investigation by
  • 14:56
    threatening to publish revealing photos
  • 14:58
    of Bezos if he did not agree to publicly
  • 15:01
    state that the national Enquirer's
  • 15:03
    coverage is not politically motivated or
  • 15:06
    influenced by political forces in a blog
  • 15:09
    post on the site medium Bezos suggests
  • 15:12
    the leak of his text messages might be
  • 15:14
    connected to his ownership of The
  • 15:16
    Washington Post
  • 15:17
    Bezos wrote quote it's unavoidable that
  • 15:20
    certain
  • 15:21
    powerful people who experience
  • 15:23
    Washington Post news coverage will
  • 15:25
    wrongly conclude I am their enemy
  • 15:27
    President Trump is one of those people
  • 15:29
    obvious by his many tweets also the
  • 15:32
    posts essential and unrelenting coverage
  • 15:35
    of the murder of its columnist Jamel
  • 15:36
    khashoggi is undoubtedly unpopular in
  • 15:39
    certain circles in his blog post Bezos
  • 15:43
    went on to write for reasons still to be
  • 15:46
    better understood the Saudi angle seems
  • 15:49
    to hit a particularly sensitive nerve
  • 15:51
    unquote meanwhile Pulitzer prize-winning
  • 15:54
    journalist Ronan Farrow of The New
  • 15:56
    Yorker has also revealed he was
  • 15:59
    threatened with blackmail over his
  • 16:01
    reporting on the National Enquirer and
  • 16:03
    President Trump let me just address the
  • 16:07
    Saudi Arabia part of this it was the
  • 16:11
    American media who released a I don't
  • 16:14
    know if it was a part of one of their
  • 16:15
    magazines or if it was a separate issue
  • 16:17
    they had this full-on kind of
  • 16:21
    hagiography blowjob pictorial of the
  • 16:24
    saudi prince and how he's gonna make so
  • 16:27
    much you know great stuff in america
  • 16:29
    yeah let cetera it's all before
  • 16:31
    Khashoggi couple xi so that's why that's
  • 16:34
    brought into the story and you know so
  • 16:36
    that was seen as a trump saudi ami
  • 16:40
    triangle to show everyone how great
  • 16:42
    saudi arabia is which was then obviously
  • 16:45
    tarnished by the killing or really
  • 16:48
    subsequent reporting of khashoggi in the
  • 16:52
    in and by the post all right couple of
  • 16:57
    things i think we did you say we're
  • 16:59
    gonna call Khashoggi a couple of things
  • 17:07
    the mcdougal situation which was
  • 17:10
    mentioned in the first report was not a
  • 17:13
    buy off they had hired her at a high
  • 17:17
    rate of pay 150,000 to write an article
  • 17:21
    which was then killed right which is
  • 17:25
    different the Ronan Farrow thing the so
  • 17:30
    called blackmail Pharaoh's trying to get
  • 17:32
    himself back in the news
  • 17:33
    it seems to me
  • 17:35
    because he threw himself into the into
  • 17:37
    this store he has to do his his
  • 17:40
    blackmail was they said you know if you
  • 17:41
    do this we're going to ruin you oh these
  • 17:46
    sorts of Hollywood style threats yeah is
  • 17:49
    never gonna work in this town again
  • 17:50
    we're gonna ruin you are not blackmail
  • 17:53
    no it's just a threat at Norton Norton
  • 17:56
    nor was that
  • 17:57
    nor was the note from the Washington
  • 17:59
    posta B's knows the note did not say you
  • 18:02
    know this is what we're gonna do it says
  • 18:05
    look this is what we have this is quite
  • 18:08
    a list of what you have but if you if
  • 18:10
    you want to make sure that never comes
  • 18:11
    to light then let's all stop all
  • 18:13
    investigations yeah that well that's an
  • 18:15
    interpretable situation I agree it could
  • 18:17
    be seen as blackmail now the other thing
  • 18:19
    is is that I like the way the Democracy
  • 18:22
    Now woman Mimi
  • 18:24
    always starts everything off with some
  • 18:26
    sort of a class structured commentary
  • 18:29
    that's just subtle it seems kind of
  • 18:31
    subtle but it's not really if you listen
  • 18:33
    to compared to anybody else's report
  • 18:35
    where you start over the story the
  • 18:36
    world's richest man oh yeah yes after
  • 18:40
    first words out of your mouth
  • 18:41
    yeah so nice person now let's talk about
  • 18:43
    the Enquirer for a minute The Enquirer
  • 18:45
    is well known I don't think that the
  • 18:47
    reporting groups of the general public
  • 18:50
    to live jaws your banker who seems to be
  • 18:53
    seem to be was flat-footed of a former
  • 18:56
    former back staying former banker former
  • 18:59
    paint right yeah was the Baker always a
  • 19:01
    banker he was flat-footed about that I
  • 19:05
    think that I doubt he or the general
  • 19:09
    public at large know about the copious
  • 19:12
    amounts of money that are paid for
  • 19:14
    people for photos and inside information
  • 19:17
    no certainly not in fact you know
  • 19:20
    whenever I tell stories about you know
  • 19:22
    this kind of stuff or my own experiences
  • 19:26
    which just as an aside when I'm uniquely
  • 19:29
    qualified to know what it's like to be
  • 19:31
    in some form of personal situation that
  • 19:33
    the media and the is specifically the
  • 19:35
    the gossip press has latched on to the
  • 19:39
    one thing that can drive you insane is
  • 19:42
    who did this to me who who positioned
  • 19:45
    this who leaked it
  • 19:47
    who said something and when you are the
  • 19:49
    richest man in the world that can go a
  • 19:51
    little bit overboard it's just - trying
  • 19:53
    to find out who because it's really
  • 19:56
    embarrassing yeah well I could imagine a
  • 20:00
    picture of him his pecker
  • 20:02
    oh yes pecker not the pecker oh and
  • 20:06
    going right going viral and gets on the
  • 20:09
    net it's everywhere so go look at this a
  • 20:11
    Bezos nice P nice package I don't have
  • 20:15
    to remind you of my first wife do i what
  • 20:19
    about her
  • 20:19
    oh yeah that she would do dies yeah you
  • 20:23
    don't get you forgot about the videos
  • 20:24
    already yeah I do I don't care about I'm
  • 20:28
    just saying this is what happens he goes
  • 20:30
    you could throw his nuts people can't
  • 20:32
    and it's always the sex stuff well the
  • 20:35
    thing is is that this is probably I mean
  • 20:38
    he did think that a guy that he's gonna
  • 20:40
    send the NSA or any of these agencies
  • 20:42
    because the NSA is not run by his pals
  • 20:44
    is the implication which is funny it is
  • 20:47
    but they always make this implication so
  • 20:49
    yeah that's who did it not the you know
  • 20:52
    the Sanchez woman saying look at this or
  • 20:56
    to her girlfriend or her brother or how
  • 21:01
    about the woman scorned scorned I think
  • 21:07
    was is - I think she's talked about
  • 21:10
    being bought off but it's very easy and
  • 21:19
    you get you you send the picture to
  • 21:20
    yourself real quick some people are
  • 21:22
    really good at this and then you send it
  • 21:24
    to the in court you're telling the
  • 21:25
    Enquirer what you've got they tell you
  • 21:27
    what they can what kind of a check they
  • 21:30
    can scratch and I said we'll give you
  • 21:32
    five will give you ten we gave you ten
  • 21:34
    thousand dollars to those pictures right
  • 21:36
    which is pretty much pin money for these
  • 21:38
    guys who put the gossip sheets and that
  • 21:40
    mean that's how they get all the Dai Li
  • 21:42
    get the pictures of John Edwards with
  • 21:43
    his second wife you know as old well I
  • 21:45
    also thought it was interesting that in
  • 21:47
    Bezos is post on medium which is just
  • 21:49
    tickles me that that's where he
  • 21:51
    published him you know it's like he
  • 21:55
    claims that this is not newsworthy you
  • 21:58
    know they really don't have the right
  • 21:59
    it's
  • 22:00
    intellectual property look I've
  • 22:02
    litigated that shit in court against
  • 22:05
    magazines and yes you are absolutely
  • 22:09
    newsworthy Jeff Bezos
  • 22:10
    and yes if they acquire that by buying
  • 22:13
    it from someone or some other means that
  • 22:15
    is not illegal they absolutely have the
  • 22:17
    right to print that and you have no
  • 22:19
    recourse to your so-called intellectual
  • 22:21
    property of your own person or of
  • 22:24
    pictures huh no just don't public figure
  • 22:26
    it is even worse well he literally
  • 22:28
    writes this doesn't you know this is no
  • 22:30
    good for anybody I'm not important no
  • 22:33
    one should care about me okay yeah well
  • 22:37
    good luck good luck with that argument
  • 22:38
    yeah
  • 22:40
    so they people do you know they're
  • 22:43
    they're seeing you know things that
  • 22:44
    don't exist inquire this is just the way
  • 22:46
    they do business and I think that you
  • 22:49
    know they've always done business this
  • 22:50
    way they may have paid 50 grand for
  • 22:52
    these oh maybe more no maybe more this
  • 22:54
    is that's not a huge amount for what you
  • 22:57
    can get for some things so it's possible
  • 23:00
    and if you're somebody has access to
  • 23:02
    these pictures we've even seen them and
  • 23:04
    you need some money yes your best friend
  • 23:06
    that you know that's that's you know
  • 23:09
    gonna get kind of embarrassed for a
  • 23:10
    while but you could use you could use
  • 23:12
    ten twenty thirty forty thousand dollars
  • 23:14
    you know everybody can count use and she
  • 23:17
    kind of you know it's a nice you know
  • 23:19
    but you won't tell her if this is
  • 23:22
    nonsense these guys are just making a
  • 23:24
    mountain out of a well I it's it's
  • 23:27
    embarrassing and it's and it is lewd and
  • 23:31
    lascivious but the way they're pointing
  • 23:34
    the food is somehow trying to point a
  • 23:35
    finger at Trump are you kidding me
  • 23:37
    not just pointing just saying uh when
  • 23:40
    this comes out he's toast toast again
  • 23:43
    yeah
  • 23:44
    now look at the Trump rotation people I
  • 23:49
    I dunno why I think I know I'd be Zoe's
  • 23:51
    has really freaked out and it's not that
  • 23:55
    hard to figure out
  • 23:56
    except you know when you're down in the
  • 23:58
    woods with the Twitter people and the
  • 24:00
    blue checkmarks and your mainstream
  • 24:02
    media you can't always see the forest
  • 24:04
    for the trees the big issue here is if
  • 24:08
    you have the guy running Amazon and you
  • 24:10
    got to think of Amazon in the broadest
  • 24:12
    scope of
  • 24:13
    all its services and Huws and you cannot
  • 24:17
    keep your dick pics secure
  • 24:19
    why the hell should project Jedi for 500
  • 24:23
    million dollars be placed with you and
  • 24:25
    not with Azure from Microsoft that's
  • 24:30
    behind the whole thing could that could
  • 24:32
    completely be true five hundred five
  • 24:36
    hundred million dollars
  • 24:37
    I'll get you your dick pic botha no
  • 24:39
    problem and that image they they let him
  • 24:43
    have a helicopter pad there and wherever
  • 24:45
    it is and with the new headquarters in
  • 24:47
    Virginia it's the big Jedi deal I forget
  • 24:51
    what the acronym stands for but it's the
  • 24:53
    big CIA cloud of the Department of
  • 24:56
    Defense everything's gonna be and it may
  • 24:58
    be much bigger than 500 we're in the
  • 25:00
    deal
  • 25:00
    of course it could why the hell would
  • 25:03
    you want to go with the guy who can't
  • 25:05
    keep his big pic secure you're gonna
  • 25:08
    keep our national security information
  • 25:10
    the CIA you're gonna keep that secure mm
  • 25:12
    pass yeah I think that's fine to believe
  • 25:17
    that's the situation that exists in this
  • 25:19
    all this hole and of course bringing
  • 25:21
    Trump into it and pointing to figure in
  • 25:23
    am i use the government that's what that
  • 25:25
    one report said they think the
  • 25:27
    government had some that come on yeah
  • 25:29
    yeah and I say hands all over it it is
  • 25:31
    he's not gonna do anything yeah so I
  • 25:35
    think that's the real issue and it could
  • 25:37
    be a dirty trick stur working for
  • 25:39
    Microsoft I mean at this point Microsoft
  • 25:41
    has a lot of fixers yeah right then
  • 25:44
    Microsoft is you know competing for most
  • 25:47
    valuable company all the time with
  • 25:48
    Amazon - yeah they're right up there in
  • 25:51
    the top five you know pushing around
  • 25:53
    yeah that's if I were B's those that's
  • 25:56
    what I'd be freaked out about for sure
  • 25:57
    my god damn manna give me the
  • 25:59
    headquarters that give me the helipad
  • 26:01
    and now they got my dick pics damn well
  • 26:05
    Squire I'm sure
  • 26:07
    pecker knows who the what the conduit is
  • 26:11
    but he's not talking no does he have to
  • 26:14
    do Microsoft got to protect this or is
  • 26:16
    he smart if it was Microsoft so solved
  • 26:26
    we figure this stuff out exactly did you
  • 26:31
    make a quick transition to another topic
  • 26:33
    that's similar she didn't mention
  • 26:35
    khashoggi yeah and and here's an NSA
  • 26:40
    this is what the NSA actually does they
  • 26:42
    pull this kind of crap if it was the NSA
  • 26:45
    but I thought this coincidence
  • 26:50
    was a bit much for me to take in fact
  • 26:53
    that it wasn't even pointed out as a
  • 26:54
    coincidence or fishy by a me on
  • 26:59
    Democracy Now kind of disappoints me
  • 27:01
    which play this clip NSA under comes
  • 27:03
    under cover under uncovers voice
  • 27:07
    recording the New York Times is
  • 27:09
    reporting US intelligence agencies have
  • 27:12
    uncovered a 2017 conversation in which
  • 27:15
    Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman
  • 27:18
    told a top aide he would go after two
  • 27:21
    Malka shocked she quote with a bullet if
  • 27:24
    the exiled journalist could not be
  • 27:26
    brought back to Saudi Arabia thirteen
  • 27:28
    months later in October of 2018 Ashok
  • 27:32
    shoe was murdered inside the Saudi
  • 27:34
    consulate in Istanbul the discovery of
  • 27:37
    the crown prince's statement was made as
  • 27:39
    the National Security Agency and other
  • 27:41
    u.s. spy agencies are reviewing years of
  • 27:44
    intercepted Saudi voice and text
  • 27:46
    communications according to The Times
  • 27:48
    Mohammed bin Salman made the comment
  • 27:51
    about khashoggi
  • 27:53
    in September of 2017 the same month when
  • 27:57
    khashoggi she began writing columns in
  • 27:59
    the Washington Post critical of the
  • 28:01
    Saudi government the White House faces a
  • 28:03
    deadline today to determine whether the
  • 28:06
    Saudi Crown Prince was personally
  • 28:08
    responsible for khashoggi Xi's murder
  • 28:11
    hmm deadline tomorrow FAC comes out
  • 28:16
    today after two years almost two years
  • 28:18
    of September 17 magical magical facto
  • 28:21
    magical fact and the thing that's
  • 28:24
    interesting to me is that they have so
  • 28:26
    much data in these computers the NSA in
  • 28:29
    particular that they can dig this up oh
  • 28:32
    sure sure
  • 28:35
    it's unbelievable mmm the people don't
  • 28:38
    people aren't upset about this and
  • 28:39
    democracy now that she's more concerned
  • 28:41
    about the Khashoggi thing because she's
  • 28:43
    like I don't know why the example of us
  • 28:47
    killing people here's what I understand
  • 28:49
    but she's not concerned about this kind
  • 28:51
    of spooking spying so how was this
  • 28:54
    unmasked that's my question because
  • 28:56
    clearly I mean were there any American
  • 28:59
    citizens in these calls we're never
  • 29:02
    gonna find that out probably not and I'm
  • 29:05
    guessing that you did a search of word
  • 29:08
    search for bullet or something the
  • 29:10
    president searching for the last six
  • 29:12
    months four different words and the
  • 29:14
    files are so big they can't actually go
  • 29:16
    start listening to them because it would
  • 29:17
    take a lifetime so you have to do these
  • 29:20
    word searches and hope that you get you
  • 29:22
    hit a home run and they did with bullet
  • 29:24
    hmm yeah there's this a lot of spying
  • 29:28
    going on yeah oh my goodness well there
  • 29:42
    let's just stick with maybe get it out
  • 29:45
    of the way I don't if you have anything
  • 29:46
    for 2020 which you know before I even go
  • 29:49
    into that I think we lose complaining
  • 29:51
    about it and you've always got the
  • 29:52
    stories I got nothing all right
  • 29:54
    well cuz there's always you have a warn
  • 29:56
    things do we have a AAA OC thing what I
  • 29:59
    was going to say is that I think we
  • 30:01
    discussed a couple months ago that you
  • 30:03
    know we have to do more with podcasts
  • 30:05
    because the people that matter people
  • 30:06
    have policy people that are in the the
  • 30:09
    mainstream m5m they're now showing up on
  • 30:11
    podcast many of them are doing podcasts
  • 30:14
    and I think we're really at a close to a
  • 30:17
    tipping point and of course it's obvious
  • 30:18
    that somewhere down the road 10 15 20
  • 30:22
    years you know it will all be podcast so
  • 30:24
    most of it will be probably
  • 30:25
    independently produced you'll still have
  • 30:28
    a mainstream but I don't know how
  • 30:30
    relevant we'll be if you look at look at
  • 30:34
    democracy now that's basically a podcast
  • 30:37
    that you and a couple other people watch
  • 30:38
    I mean it's not much bigger than that so
  • 30:41
    you know Joe Rogan is almost like the
  • 30:44
    The Tonight Show of our era it's not
  • 30:46
    Fallon
  • 30:47
    if you don't mind me saying so okay yeah
  • 30:51
    you know so so I think that it's we're
  • 30:53
    going towards this point where the
  • 30:55
    podcast and it's hard because podcast
  • 30:58
    you know you can't just you're not gonna
  • 31:00
    get a little snippet from someone
  • 31:02
    there's not a youtube video you have to
  • 31:03
    listen to him I've listened to a lot
  • 31:07
    this past few in its and the more people
  • 31:10
    can listen to them in timecode and send
  • 31:12
    us time codes the better it will be
  • 31:14
    because it's very time consuming but I
  • 31:16
    do have a few gems I think but let's
  • 31:19
    just stick with what's going on and you
  • 31:22
    know who's anointed or not I did see the
  • 31:25
    Elizabeth Warren announcement this I
  • 31:27
    thought was an interesting commercial
  • 31:29
    Saturday February 16
  • 31:33
    [Applause]
  • 31:34
    [Music]
  • 31:36
    with Michael B Jordan Bradley Cooper and
  • 31:39
    federal rights
  • 31:44
    Oprah live from Times Square with Beto
  • 31:47
    do you think he's gonna get anointed on
  • 31:50
    stage I think so he's Oprah's choice
  • 31:55
    that's not to be that's dangerous zone
  • 31:58
    on don't underestimate what what Beto
  • 32:03
    could do with Oprah I'm sure that bit
  • 32:06
    that Oprah can make a splash is better
  • 32:07
    but the public is not gonna go for this
  • 32:09
    this guy's never I mean the public goes
  • 32:13
    for whoever has the most mom it was
  • 32:15
    pretty bad he's just sure you know
  • 32:16
    senator just voted present all the time
  • 32:19
    and this guy didn't even get his job
  • 32:22
    couldn't even beat Ted Cruz Ted Cruz
  • 32:28
    you're disqualified be fair to be a
  • 32:30
    Democrat in Texas before all the
  • 32:31
    California says no he was a little early
  • 32:34
    he'll get there if you were to continue
  • 32:36
    he might get there well I have the
  • 32:42
    Elizabeth Warren thing happened yeah and
  • 32:45
    I have the short version which i think
  • 32:47
    is all it should anybody should do this
  • 32:49
    CBS giving her her her do and this is
  • 32:52
    the last you're gonna hear of her oh yes
  • 32:55
    I got it
  • 32:56
    Democratic senator Elizabeth Warren is
  • 32:58
    officially running for president she
  • 33:00
    formally launched her bid today in
  • 33:01
    Lawrence Massachusetts Warren says that
  • 33:04
    she will fight against economic
  • 33:05
    inequality and push for increasing
  • 33:08
    corruption regulations in Washington
  • 33:10
    yeah she's gonna fight against
  • 33:12
    inequality and pushing against
  • 33:14
    corruption that's original that's odd
  • 33:16
    because that was not the big takeaway
  • 33:18
    from her speech the big takeaway that
  • 33:20
    was the green New Deal she's all in on
  • 33:23
    the green New Deal yeah and she's
  • 33:25
    sending out emails chip in she could
  • 33:27
    keep doing chip in email chip in he ship
  • 33:30
    in three bucks chip in green new deal
  • 33:32
    and then she and her campaign song
  • 33:36
    respect
  • 33:38
    RESP ICT if only yes that's her
  • 33:43
    campaigns are very brazen
  • 33:46
    she's too much so she watched this whole
  • 33:49
    American Indian thing is she's really
  • 33:50
    screwed because of the that statement
  • 33:54
    but I got adamson talking about podcast
  • 33:57
    I listened to his his periscope thing
  • 34:00
    yep it's hard to get clips from it
  • 34:03
    because he's he's that one says he's
  • 34:05
    long-winded but he's he's like a deposit
  • 34:10
    seems to be his best friend so you had
  • 34:12
    to clip a lot of load bet that's funny
  • 34:14
    that's when he's looking at the chatroom
  • 34:15
    see if he has to block yeah spends a lot
  • 34:17
    of time interacting which is good this
  • 34:19
    modern yeah but so he did have a
  • 34:21
    commentary but about Elizabeth Warren
  • 34:25
    and her approach to the problem that
  • 34:27
    she's faced with this American India
  • 34:29
    especially that document that surfaced
  • 34:31
    then where she wrote it down when she's
  • 34:33
    trying to get into the Texas bar and I
  • 34:36
    think that he's hit something here into
  • 34:38
    something we've always kind of he points
  • 34:40
    a couple of it points out something that
  • 34:42
    we probably should always take into
  • 34:43
    consideration and he I think nails what
  • 34:46
    she should have done but doesn't have
  • 34:48
    the capability here's what I think she
  • 34:50
    did wrong what she did wrong was you
  • 34:54
    know the way she handled it of course
  • 34:56
    but I don't think she's handled it with
  • 34:58
    the sense of humor that it called for
  • 35:01
    don't you think a sense of humor was
  • 35:03
    necessary and apparently she doesn't
  • 35:06
    have one remember I told you that 103
  • 35:09
    people don't have a sense of humor the
  • 35:11
    smart way to play this wooded them to
  • 35:14
    consider it as funny as the people
  • 35:17
    watching it she should have paced the
  • 35:19
    public because the public thinks this is
  • 35:22
    hilarious and she should have just
  • 35:24
    agreed say yeah I got totally taken yeah
  • 35:29
    good point
  • 35:30
    she's a mocker she's not she has no
  • 35:33
    humor she's one of those mockers sarcasm
  • 35:36
    she's a sarcastic person
  • 35:38
    yeah no sense of humor whatsoever and I
  • 35:41
    never thought about it till he brought
  • 35:42
    it up when Susie said it you go yeah oh
  • 35:44
    yeah I never heard a good joke out of
  • 35:47
    her or anything even remotely funny no
  • 35:49
    she's not that person with a sense of
  • 35:51
    humor at all
  • 35:52
    she looks always on the verge of Ebsen
  • 35:54
    to angry tears
  • 35:58
    this little this little but if one other
  • 36:00
    three people don't have a sense of humor
  • 36:03
    that's kind of sad if it's true and I
  • 36:05
    think it might be hmm
  • 36:07
    tell me does that mean so much to
  • 36:09
    ministers don't exactly what exactly
  • 36:12
    does it mean to not have a sense of
  • 36:14
    humor mean you you can't make a joke you
  • 36:16
    can't laugh about anything
  • 36:18
    yeah what exactly does that suppose do
  • 36:20
    the ladder huh but you've nothing's
  • 36:22
    funny cuz you don't nothing's funny
  • 36:24
    every to you because you don't have a
  • 36:25
    sense of here we don't see you don't see
  • 36:27
    humor in everyday life well well I think
  • 36:31
    I got a slap-happy joke I mean I know a
  • 36:35
    lot of people that have a great sense of
  • 36:36
    humor and cannot for the life of them
  • 36:39
    ever tell the joke and they're not
  • 36:41
    interested in they don't tell jokes they
  • 36:43
    just never weren't a joke telling family
  • 36:46
    right but they've put their laugh at
  • 36:50
    things they seem to laugh at the right
  • 36:51
    time to not laughing cuz every I've
  • 36:53
    always worried about the person that
  • 36:55
    doesn't have a sense of humor but knows
  • 36:56
    how to laugh and there's peas oh that's
  • 36:59
    B Zoe's the phony laugh look around they
  • 37:04
    see somebody else laughing it's for
  • 37:05
    their good they go nuts we have some
  • 37:08
    laughing
  • 37:09
    don't we have that Vizio's laugh
  • 37:11
    somewhere we probably do overcome you
  • 37:14
    see what is this what is this oh you
  • 37:17
    might have to play the gender Bezos okay
  • 37:25
    I'll play that end of show sounds like a
  • 37:28
    winner oh I do have a gem just regarding
  • 37:34
    well not really
  • 37:35
    20/20 but just the political positions
  • 37:38
    Virginia I asked on the last show I
  • 37:42
    think where's al Sharpton wit how come
  • 37:44
    these guys don't know you're okay here's
  • 37:47
    how it typically works you're in
  • 37:48
    blackface you do something stupid
  • 37:50
    al Sharpton shows up he makes a big
  • 37:53
    stink outside your office with this na n
  • 37:56
    the now Action Network I think it's
  • 37:57
    called and then you write him a check
  • 38:01
    now and I'm not I'm not making this up
  • 38:05
    I mean you donate to the NA n and then
  • 38:09
    Sharpton goes away and you get
  • 38:10
    to do a little photo op and their
  • 38:13
    solution this is if this is where the
  • 38:15
    Catholic Church operated well Sharpton
  • 38:18
    has made quite a business out of it and
  • 38:20
    I said well how come he's where is he
  • 38:22
    that this is such a beautiful spot well
  • 38:24
    see Mike who lives in the state said oh
  • 38:28
    he was there and listen to what Reverend
  • 38:31
    Al said yes governor Kinsey who you have
  • 38:36
    to be accountable for things that you do
  • 38:39
    yes the governor can be forgiven yes the
  • 38:42
    state can be forgiven but forgiveness
  • 38:45
    without a price is not forgiveness
  • 38:55
    [Music]
  • 39:01
    forgiveness got a price he's just open
  • 39:08
    about it yeah it's got a price you got
  • 39:12
    to pay the price
  • 39:14
    die die nod design and I'd whip my
  • 39:17
    checkbook out so fast hey L let's get
  • 39:22
    the Hasselblad in here so we look really
  • 39:24
    good together
  • 39:26
    that guy's too much well he noticed you
  • 39:30
    know he's got it down where he's that he
  • 39:32
    can you know he's got it down he's the
  • 39:35
    whole thing was developed except was
  • 39:38
    developed by the other black Minister se
  • 39:41
    Jackson Jesse Jackson shakedown man
  • 39:44
    suspect oh yeah it's the shakedown wait
  • 39:46
    didn't like didn't like a troll room
  • 39:48
    says they wrote a book about it called
  • 39:51
    shakedown you kidding me I I believe
  • 39:55
    that might be true ah Jesse Jackson oh
  • 39:58
    let me check shakedown that would be
  • 40:01
    interesting this is a book we uh uh well
  • 40:04
    it was written to bow okay I see
  • 40:07
    Sharpton shakedown I don't know if he
  • 40:10
    wrote it was written about no I think
  • 40:12
    was written about us okay
  • 40:14
    yeah yes oh man this goes way back
  • 40:17
    sharpton shakedown getting rich off
  • 40:19
    racism nice yeah well good times
  • 40:24
    business is good forever now yeah you
  • 40:28
    gotta wonder what he doesn't hurt and
  • 40:29
    let's put it that you gotta wonder what
  • 40:30
    he has on NBC brass
  • 40:32
    I mean he's not on the air for no reason
  • 40:35
    he sucks I mean can't read can't speak
  • 40:39
    guy totally sucks is what like he's an
  • 40:41
    embarrassment
  • 40:42
    yeah so why is he on the air shakedown
  • 40:45
    you know just maybe hedging their bets
  • 40:48
    over there I don't know know who can say
  • 40:51
    yes fantastic fantastic
  • 40:55
    all right well speaking of Scott in his
  • 41:01
    his uh his periscope videos I was
  • 41:05
    listening to and actually I caught I got
  • 41:08
    caught on some funky bias that I have
  • 41:10
    you know there's this one guy Tim Poole
  • 41:13
    and if you ever seen him nope and he
  • 41:16
    does YouTube videos and from time to
  • 41:19
    time one of our producers will send me a
  • 41:21
    link to a video say this is great you
  • 41:24
    gotta watch it it's like an hour like
  • 41:26
    you instead of saying well you know go
  • 41:29
    to this timecode you know you can also
  • 41:31
    send me a link that's queued up for the
  • 41:32
    right time code just say that this is
  • 41:35
    great
  • 41:36
    you gotta watch it it's and then I look
  • 41:37
    at the guy I see this he has like a
  • 41:39
    youtuber shot the guys in the bedroom
  • 41:41
    has got a beanie on his head I'm like no
  • 41:43
    and he talks a little bit like ben
  • 41:46
    shapiro about a little machine-gunning
  • 41:48
    not quite as bad and so I always pass
  • 41:50
    the Bible I'm not interested
  • 41:52
    and so I'm listening to this Joe Rogan
  • 41:55
    show with Tim Poole and it doesn't dock
  • 41:57
    I'm only listening I'm not seeing the
  • 41:59
    visual like this guy's interesting he's
  • 42:01
    got a lot to say and then it really
  • 42:03
    dawns on me an hour into it like holy
  • 42:05
    crap that's this guy so I this is why I
  • 42:08
    think video is a bad idea for podcasting
  • 42:11
    then maybe this guy has his fame through
  • 42:13
    podcasts through YouTube videos and it
  • 42:16
    should be a pocket I don't know but it
  • 42:18
    was I missed out clearly on some stuff
  • 42:20
    because the guy's interesting has a lot
  • 42:21
    of things to say he turned off by his by
  • 42:25
    his superficial appearance
  • 42:27
    absolutely and I I admit it look by the
  • 42:29
    way that's I think broadcasters
  • 42:30
    discovered that this is important some
  • 42:32
    time back what they figured that out
  • 42:37
    already
  • 42:38
    the the appealing looks and and just the
  • 42:42
    vision by itself keeps people tuned in
  • 42:44
    yeah maybe not like we're just shallow
  • 42:46
    old white guys if the fuck do we know
  • 42:48
    but he does know he's been in these
  • 42:51
    BuzzFeed circles he's worked for
  • 42:53
    BuzzFeed for vice for Vox you know he's
  • 42:56
    a former kind of skater guy very
  • 43:00
    anti-establishment and he's now
  • 43:02
    positioned into this place where he has
  • 43:04
    very very large following on on YouTube
  • 43:07
    and he sat down with an actually of
  • 43:09
    three clips because there's two other
  • 43:11
    things that are really important that he
  • 43:12
    was in the middle of that that I'd like
  • 43:14
    to share but first why Alex Jones was
  • 43:18
    banned because they were talking about
  • 43:20
    this you know and Joe Rogan apparently
  • 43:22
    got so much hate for his interview with
  • 43:24
    Jack Dorsey from Twitter that you know
  • 43:27
    he's like ha Jackson come back and and
  • 43:29
    Joe Rogan's like I want to learn from
  • 43:31
    this and I mean I think he did a fine
  • 43:33
    job except for not disclosing that you
  • 43:35
    know he takes money from one of his
  • 43:37
    companies and we got answers out of it
  • 43:40
    kind of you know it's like whatever it
  • 43:41
    was it was enough to satisfy his what it
  • 43:44
    was it was what it was but Dorsey never
  • 43:48
    really answered why Alex Jones
  • 43:49
    specifically got banned and Tim Poole
  • 43:51
    did enlighten the audience Jamie you
  • 43:53
    pulled up why Alex was banned to which
  • 43:56
    is you know it's not very clear like
  • 44:00
    when when you think about the fact that
  • 44:02
    they were saying that he had never done
  • 44:03
    anything on their platform that was ban
  • 44:06
    a ball and then what was the one final
  • 44:09
    thing like any Jack didn't know what he
  • 44:12
    was he got he confronted Oliver Darcy of
  • 44:14
    CNN in DC and for several minutes was
  • 44:18
    yelling at him while they filmed and
  • 44:19
    apparently that's my understanding was
  • 44:21
    the justification for banning him that
  • 44:23
    he was harassing a journalist or
  • 44:24
    something that effect which is in my
  • 44:26
    opinion absurd and was doing it on
  • 44:28
    Twitter
  • 44:29
    um I guess they post it to terms live on
  • 44:31
    periscope platform so if you do
  • 44:34
    something on periscope they can get you
  • 44:36
    banned from Twitter well that's the same
  • 44:38
    thing right yeah this because they're
  • 44:39
    connected that yeah
  • 44:40
    I in my opinion so it's make it makes a
  • 44:43
    good point how does Alex Jones get
  • 44:46
    banned for giving that guy a hard time
  • 44:48
    but Kathy Griffin doesn't get banned for
  • 44:50
    literally calling for these children
  • 44:51
    leading a harassment campaign names
  • 44:54
    someone with millions of followers led a
  • 44:56
    harassment campaign I'm gonna use their
  • 44:58
    language yeah if you're calling on your
  • 45:00
    followers to do something York you're
  • 45:01
    engaging in a campaign yeah but Alex
  • 45:03
    Jones confronting the journalist who
  • 45:05
    advocated for his banning his abandon
  • 45:07
    bull offense here's the important thing
  • 45:09
    about Jones
  • 45:10
    Oliver Darcy said on CNN it wasn't that
  • 45:13
    Jones broke the rules that got him
  • 45:15
    banned because you know what what Darcy
  • 45:17
    said is he's been breaking the rules in
  • 45:19
    the past they never cared it was only
  • 45:20
    because of media pressure they took
  • 45:22
    action against him okay well we know
  • 45:24
    many other people break the rules we
  • 45:26
    know far-left accounts have doxxed law
  • 45:28
    enforcement we know Kathy Griffin let a
  • 45:30
    craftsman campaign there's no media
  • 45:31
    pressure that's one of the big problems
  • 45:33
    Twitter knows conservatives aren't going
  • 45:35
    to be able to level any kind of campaign
  • 45:37
    against their platform there's not
  • 45:39
    scared of it so this actually led to
  • 45:41
    kind of some enlightening information
  • 45:43
    about how Twitter functions the the true
  • 45:47
    reality of the blue checkmark
  • 45:49
    verification which as we know is it's
  • 45:53
    it's big-name celebrities and it's
  • 45:55
    journalists you can have a thousand
  • 45:57
    followers and you're on K podunk and
  • 45:59
    you'll get a blue checkmark because
  • 46:01
    you're a journalist you have a check
  • 46:03
    mark I don't have a check mark I've
  • 46:05
    asked for one there's been petitions for
  • 46:06
    one I'm not a celebrity I'm not a
  • 46:08
    journalist I'm doing both the celebrity
  • 46:10
    and a journalist that's what's funny I'm
  • 46:12
    just a douche dick and I need to shut up
  • 46:14
    but they consider you a douche but if
  • 46:18
    somebody does it's like someone person
  • 46:21
    over their age very important point
  • 46:23
    because we have two sides to Twitter of
  • 46:26
    course we have the people who have their
  • 46:29
    hands in the code on the buttons all the
  • 46:31
    time which can be done with or without
  • 46:32
    whatever approval processes but more
  • 46:35
    important everything of course and more
  • 46:38
    importantly if you have a system we call
  • 46:41
    it the machine the machine that
  • 46:43
    interacts with mainstream tell mainly
  • 46:45
    cable news but mainstream television but
  • 46:48
    they also all interact with each other
  • 46:49
    and we're talking the buzz feeds the
  • 46:52
    Huff Pose
  • 46:53
    all of these bullcrap operations well
  • 46:56
    and I say that I really mean that that
  • 46:58
    bullcrap and we have more about that
  • 47:00
    later
  • 47:01
    he so having been in the middle of it
  • 47:04
    for him to explain kind of the process
  • 47:05
    and he uses part of the example is the
  • 47:09
    the high school kids and the and the
  • 47:11
    American Indian fracas and explains how
  • 47:16
    it works and what really runs Twitter
  • 47:19
    news organizations are headquartered in
  • 47:20
    big cities the big ones you know seeing
  • 47:22
    even Fox News is in New York so there's
  • 47:24
    a lot of people who work at Fox News are
  • 47:26
    actually liberal people don't seem to
  • 47:27
    know that you live in New York you're
  • 47:29
    probably not a staunch conservative so
  • 47:31
    what happens then news breaks you've got
  • 47:33
    all these journalists because I've
  • 47:34
    worked with them you know I worked for
  • 47:36
    Vice I worked for fusion and they sit
  • 47:37
    around at tables they meet up after work
  • 47:39
    from different offices and they talk
  • 47:41
    about things and they all tell each
  • 47:42
    other the exact same thing and so this
  • 47:44
    is why you see covington happen these
  • 47:46
    people will follow each other on Twitter
  • 47:47
    so when someone tweets this Macha kid
  • 47:50
    got in the face of Nathan Phillips they
  • 47:52
    only see each other's tweets and they
  • 47:54
    just write it they don't do any
  • 47:56
    journalism it's mind-blowing to me
  • 47:58
    because the second video that came out
  • 48:00
    from Covington you literally watch
  • 48:01
    Nathan Phillips walk in to up to the kid
  • 48:03
    in get his face but at the same time we
  • 48:05
    have a serious journalism problem and
  • 48:06
    this links back to Twitter yet and
  • 48:08
    what's what's what's fascinating is
  • 48:10
    following this story an op-ed I believe
  • 48:12
    it was in the New York Times said stop
  • 48:14
    tweeting art said never tweet brian
  • 48:16
    Stelter from CNN then got a statement
  • 48:18
    that but someone from Twitter said
  • 48:21
    journalists are the lifeblood of our
  • 48:22
    platform and so that's why I think
  • 48:24
    you've got these predominantly new
  • 48:26
    york-based
  • 48:27
    progressive writers they're fresh out of
  • 48:30
    college they get hired for you know
  • 48:32
    moderate salaries to work in a newsroom
  • 48:34
    sit around each other all day sharing
  • 48:36
    the same ideas not exploring anything
  • 48:37
    outside their bubble and Twitter
  • 48:38
    supports them because they're the ones
  • 48:40
    who drive traffic to Twitter they keep
  • 48:42
    the conversation going and I think
  • 48:43
    that's where Twitter spies partly comes
  • 48:45
    from the other is that clearly you're in
  • 48:47
    San Francisco you're gonna have you know
  • 48:49
    your staff the people who are who are
  • 48:51
    you know running content curation and
  • 48:53
    banning people they lean left
  • 48:55
    I think he's nailing it with the with
  • 48:58
    them all sitting around they're all you
  • 49:00
    know barely there's nothing we haven't
  • 49:02
    talked about on this show numerous times
  • 49:05
    synched I'm not saying that we haven't
  • 49:07
    touched on it and the last clip we've
  • 49:09
    talked about as well but never with one
  • 49:11
    important detail we've always talked
  • 49:13
    about traffic buying and how bullcrap it
  • 49:15
    is and how this this bubble has been at
  • 49:18
    which is now starting to burst clearly
  • 49:20
    since these very same news organizations
  • 49:22
    have to let 15 to 20 percent of their
  • 49:25
    workforce go but there's one thing we we
  • 49:28
    never discussed in the traffic buying
  • 49:30
    equation and Tim Poole brought it it's
  • 49:34
    it's publicly known but not talked about
  • 49:36
    a whole lot that these media
  • 49:37
    organizations mostly these digital new
  • 49:39
    startups don't actually get a lot of
  • 49:41
    views so what they do is it's called
  • 49:43
    traffic assignment there's a company
  • 49:46
    called comScore that tracks the the
  • 49:48
    viewership the unique views these sites
  • 49:50
    have if you're trying to attract
  • 49:52
    investment and you say we get 20 million
  • 49:54
    views per month they're gonna say that's
  • 49:56
    cool but this site gets 60 what do they
  • 49:58
    do well there are some sites this is
  • 50:00
    according to Variety modern farmer calm
  • 50:03
    whatwhat is that I have no idea I've
  • 50:05
    never heard of it but there are many
  • 50:06
    sites which you've probably seen where
  • 50:08
    it's like the top 25 celebrities who you
  • 50:11
    know mess up their makeup yes you click
  • 50:13
    the page and I'll show you a photo in
  • 50:14
    order to the next photo you got to click
  • 50:16
    the next page that's that way they turn
  • 50:18
    you one person at 25 unique views are 25
  • 50:22
    views I wants a unique then a company
  • 50:25
    like vice for instance will buy the
  • 50:28
    assignment of your traffic and attribute
  • 50:30
    to themselves so when the comScore
  • 50:32
    numbers come out it will say all of
  • 50:35
    those views from those clickbait sites
  • 50:36
    are actually vice again I'm quoting
  • 50:39
    variety here I don't wanna get sued but
  • 50:40
    variety said that their traffic went
  • 50:42
    down 17% because someone they were
  • 50:45
    buying traffic assignment from was like
  • 50:48
    going through turmoil and shaken and
  • 50:49
    being shaken up and another one of their
  • 50:51
    traffic assignment partners switched to
  • 50:54
    I think like you know got told that NBC
  • 50:55
    or something so so what ends up
  • 50:57
    happening well I can say a little bit
  • 51:00
    there was a company that was a prominent
  • 51:02
    digital news outlet I knew someone there
  • 51:05
    who was decently high up who told me our
  • 51:09
    company is contemplating whether or not
  • 51:11
    we should engage in traffic assignment
  • 51:13
    to inflate our numbers and I said don't
  • 51:15
    do it like that's wrong yeah and they
  • 51:17
    said but we need investment
  • 51:19
    so I wonder if is that fraud yes but if
  • 51:25
    comScore is is just lumping the numbers
  • 51:28
    together and i go to you and say
  • 51:30
    according to comScore our network brings
  • 51:33
    in 60 million I didn't lie that's all
  • 51:35
    true yes that's true so here's what
  • 51:38
    happens these companies get massive
  • 51:39
    investment they don't actually generate
  • 51:41
    enough clicks or enough money then once
  • 51:44
    the investment runs out those jobs never
  • 51:47
    existed those were those were padded by
  • 51:49
    investors everything collapses it seems
  • 51:51
    like magnet I'd never seems like fraud I
  • 51:54
    had never taken the comScore traffic
  • 51:56
    assignment into the equation yes and
  • 52:00
    this is very common
  • 52:01
    yeah and I can remember I think we did
  • 52:03
    in a pod show yeah I assigned a Devorah
  • 52:06
    go slash blog assignment a two of us
  • 52:09
    when I started working in fraudster did
  • 52:13
    you say said hey you got you want to
  • 52:15
    work here did you ever get it back did
  • 52:18
    you ever get did you get your assignment
  • 52:21
    back ID assignment is vision there's no
  • 52:25
    they don't have that anymore right
  • 52:27
    I mean this reminds me I mean all these
  • 52:29
    companies are like this there's this
  • 52:31
    idealism that goes on there for example
  • 52:33
    we had this guy at bed pod show or media
  • 52:36
    who was Crist would guide the tattooed
  • 52:39
    IT guy and guy had like a minute he's
  • 52:43
    just all tatted up but he was a really
  • 52:45
    solid IT guy that was a stickler so he
  • 52:49
    had barcodes on him call a dude named
  • 52:52
    Ben here come on he's our dude named Ben
  • 52:54
    and he was he would be you know he would
  • 52:56
    he had a database so if you wanted to
  • 52:58
    like for example I had every sheet of
  • 53:02
    toilet paper had a barcode well it was
  • 53:04
    close to it by for example he had a
  • 53:06
    bunch of mics and some gear assigned to
  • 53:08
    me and it had barcodes on it was owned
  • 53:09
    by the company baby you need to check it
  • 53:12
    in it was an inventory for some reason
  • 53:16
    this is like firing the makeup girls
  • 53:18
    they fired him for some reason and
  • 53:21
    there's a cost-cutting and they never
  • 53:24
    really nobody really took that job
  • 53:28
    the database was now missing in action
  • 53:31
    and all these barcodes are meaningless
  • 53:32
    and so all the gear that everybody
  • 53:34
    barded walking not the only one but
  • 53:38
    there were people with I mean anything
  • 53:41
    that there was just on loan kind of was
  • 53:44
    now gone it was missing it wasn't it did
  • 53:46
    never existed right and this this is the
  • 53:48
    kind of thing these companies are just
  • 53:51
    it's almost like a spitting of prayer
  • 53:54
    that the whole Silicon Valley even
  • 53:55
    operates at all well well this this
  • 53:58
    particular piece and kind of alert me to
  • 54:00
    two things one is NBC apparently
  • 54:04
    purchased one of their traffic assignees
  • 54:08
    so you know that's how they see fit to
  • 54:13
    solve this traffic problem by buying
  • 54:15
    these companies that put these and
  • 54:17
    they're not really scam and it's just
  • 54:19
    you can you know what you're getting
  • 54:20
    it's like click click click click slide
  • 54:23
    show right I mean and but it has nothing
  • 54:25
    to do with the quality of the content or
  • 54:28
    the journalism represented by it so
  • 54:31
    there's what I mean yeah and and so some
  • 54:33
    of these companies are running into
  • 54:35
    trouble other ones will just be
  • 54:36
    purchased by the guys with the you know
  • 54:38
    with the big big putt deep pocket so
  • 54:40
    that they can take them off the market
  • 54:42
    and use their traffic assignment for
  • 54:43
    themselves but ultimately you're gonna
  • 54:48
    run into a problem when someone says hey
  • 54:51
    comScore if you shouldn't be doing it
  • 54:54
    this way that's when the whole bubble
  • 54:56
    completely disintegrates well that's
  • 54:59
    kind of what used to happen i for
  • 55:01
    example i'm i can almost take credit for
  • 55:04
    this slide show cuz i don't know anyone
  • 55:06
    else that was doing it when i was doing
  • 55:08
    him which was way back at pc magazine in
  • 55:11
    the in probably the mid to late 90s and
  • 55:17
    i would do these slideshows i go to a
  • 55:20
    trade show and i make a slide show out
  • 55:21
    of it with some with my typical snide
  • 55:23
    comments of all the pictures and it was
  • 55:27
    just a although the site comments were
  • 55:29
    at the price of admission but there was
  • 55:30
    a slide show I took a lot of pictures of
  • 55:31
    the boots babe in bows and I made some
  • 55:33
    comments and so there was really like 10
  • 55:35
    slides and there's click click click at
  • 55:37
    the click click click through them and
  • 55:39
    then I get a feedback you know that
  • 55:41
    advertised
  • 55:42
    don't want to see any of these slides
  • 55:44
    really really yeah I was told never to
  • 55:47
    do them again because it was well these
  • 55:52
    are nothing these are not on the website
  • 55:54
    see these are just these literally are
  • 55:56
    about celebrities and other and dogs and
  • 55:59
    other stupid stuff and they just count
  • 56:02
    the traffic it's irrelevant to the
  • 56:03
    content so you understand that I
  • 56:05
    understand that I'm just saying that as
  • 56:07
    one retires hated is what you're saying
  • 56:09
    at one point early on they didn't like
  • 56:12
    it because it was jacking up the numbers
  • 56:13
    huh but when comScore comes along and
  • 56:16
    they're using these jacked-up numbers
  • 56:18
    they did they become more popular than
  • 56:20
    ever just you can't go you can't go on
  • 56:22
    the web without hitting one of these
  • 56:23
    slides I was constantly al-jazeera
  • 56:26
    reminded us in a little piece they did
  • 56:28
    exactly where all this new journalism
  • 56:32
    money came from the other revenue source
  • 56:34
    that will likely dry up is from
  • 56:36
    mainstream media organizations that have
  • 56:39
    invested in their younger digital
  • 56:40
    competitors NBC Universal and Comcast
  • 56:44
    have injected more than 400 million
  • 56:46
    dollars into BuzzFeed Fox Disney and A &
  • 56:50
    E networks have pumped hundreds of
  • 56:52
    millions in device Verizon has long been
  • 56:56
    vacuuming up media content providers
  • 56:58
    such as yeah
  • 56:59
    AOL and by extension HuffPost in
  • 57:02
    multi-billion dollar deals there may
  • 57:05
    have once been a rationale for such
  • 57:07
    investments but those mainstream media
  • 57:09
    companies are now counting their losses
  • 57:11
    in some cases writing them off and
  • 57:13
    looking to invest elsewhere media
  • 57:18
    companies who made most of their money
  • 57:20
    in television and pay television was
  • 57:22
    just going off a cliff being eaten by
  • 57:25
    Netflix they were seeing their most
  • 57:27
    lucrative parts of their business
  • 57:28
    declining they were desperate to reach
  • 57:31
    these hard-to-reach young people in
  • 57:32
    their 20s and early 30s and vice and
  • 57:35
    BuzzFeed they offered a way to reach
  • 57:38
    these young audiences and now it's
  • 57:39
    unlikely that they're going to continue
  • 57:41
    that investment just because of the
  • 57:43
    difficulties in the online advertising
  • 57:45
    market who exactly is going to be
  • 57:48
    provide the funding for these companies
  • 57:50
    as they go forward venture capital
  • 57:52
    investors don't just give you hundreds
  • 57:54
    of millions of dollars for nothing
  • 57:56
    they're gonna expect that money back
  • 57:58
    it's gonna have to come from somewhere
  • 57:59
    because the revenue model is now in
  • 58:03
    question not only are we questioning the
  • 58:05
    growth rates of these companies we're
  • 58:06
    questioning sort of whether they can
  • 58:08
    even continue to be the same size so now
  • 58:12
    you've got something that's not even
  • 58:13
    growing it's probably shrinking that's
  • 58:15
    not a business model that anybody is
  • 58:18
    going to be interested in investing in
  • 58:19
    no I think it's well over now I think
  • 58:22
    these will over at all the VCS you think
  • 58:25
    they're still investing in these things
  • 58:26
    I think as long as the scam continues
  • 58:33
    and I think this guy talking up with
  • 58:36
    Rogan referred to part of it but I think
  • 58:39
    about the buying of traffic they
  • 58:41
    arbitrage all this other stuff as long
  • 58:44
    as those things can continue you can
  • 58:45
    have these pumped up numbers that and
  • 58:47
    until dumb money goes away right here's
  • 58:51
    the investment community consists of
  • 58:53
    smart money and dumb money as we know
  • 58:55
    and that smart money is already probably
  • 58:58
    ok this is bullcrap let's find something
  • 59:00
    else to do it although they become dumb
  • 59:03
    money when they go invest in green
  • 59:05
    technology I find it somewhat ironic
  • 59:09
    first they're smart money than they're
  • 59:10
    dumb dumb real dumb money well it's it's
  • 59:13
    interesting that this these firings all
  • 59:16
    came at the same time could just be
  • 59:18
    signal financial end of year well we
  • 59:20
    talked about there was also that that
  • 59:22
    pot of money the Obama money from the
  • 59:25
    government it's true if trynna
  • 59:27
    if true but I well if it was a combo
  • 59:31
    deal if some of that money dried up we
  • 59:33
    don't really have any proof that it went
  • 59:35
    to them now if that money dried up
  • 59:37
    and by the way Canada's trying to do the
  • 59:39
    same thing they're trying to split up
  • 59:40
    five hundred million dollar retz amongst
  • 59:43
    the media companies having secret
  • 59:46
    meetings about it and stuff it's very
  • 59:48
    funny these guys should realize that
  • 59:49
    when you get five hundred million bucks
  • 59:51
    and you give it to the media
  • 59:52
    it all goes upstairs yeah
  • 59:55
    I mean there is so much condemned nation
  • 59:58
    of Jeff Bezos talking about Bezos again
  • 1:00:01
    over his Washington Post ads and the
  • 1:00:05
    Super Bowl the juror hated the journals
  • 1:00:09
    hated it of course he did because it's
  • 1:00:11
    ten point five million dollars he spent
  • 1:00:13
    on this ad that was useless and it was
  • 1:00:16
    and they skep saying this ten point five
  • 1:00:18
    million dollars could be ten reporters
  • 1:00:22
    at $100,000 a year for ten years plus a
  • 1:00:26
    half a million dollars to buy donuts and
  • 1:00:32
    it was and every because the journalists
  • 1:00:35
    know that they're under stress to get
  • 1:00:37
    you know the very few newspapers are
  • 1:00:40
    doing well no magazine magazines are
  • 1:00:42
    shrinking the online there's no money in
  • 1:00:44
    online you have to scam no you have to
  • 1:00:46
    scam investors it's all investment money
  • 1:00:48
    it's not like real money that's coming
  • 1:00:50
    in from the public so they know that
  • 1:00:54
    this is a problem to see Bezos throw
  • 1:00:55
    away ten million dollars casually ax
  • 1:00:58
    them yes all the journalists were pissed
  • 1:01:01
    off and also she watched in post people
  • 1:01:03
    also these new journals should realize
  • 1:01:05
    that yeah Google and Facebook are out to
  • 1:01:09
    get you and they what they don't care
  • 1:01:11
    about you and they change the al goes
  • 1:01:14
    and screw you over as fast as they can
  • 1:01:17
    for your scams for your scam money
  • 1:01:20
    excellent well that gives us hope well
  • 1:01:24
    we do everything on the up-and-up
  • 1:01:26
    we do in fact we don't have we don't
  • 1:01:29
    worry about advertisers we don't worry
  • 1:01:31
    about pageviews we don't worry about you
  • 1:01:33
    know assignments because we don't look
  • 1:01:36
    we don't get income from that it's just
  • 1:01:38
    bullcrap that those people should be
  • 1:01:40
    ashamed of themselves
  • 1:01:41
    those people should learn to code and
  • 1:01:46
    with that I'd like to thank you for your
  • 1:01:48
    courage and say in the morning to you
  • 1:01:49
    the man who put the sea and comScore
  • 1:01:51
    John C brown feet in the air subs in the
  • 1:01:59
    water and all the Dames a night's out
  • 1:02:02
    there in the morning to the troll room
  • 1:02:04
    no agenda stream calm I wanted to
  • 1:02:07
    mentioned that anybody who wants to join
  • 1:02:09
    the Fed averse I think saying Federer
  • 1:02:12
    versus better than Mastodon me them
  • 1:02:14
    they're great but if you want to join
  • 1:02:15
    the future of social media you can do
  • 1:02:17
    that at our very own no agenda social
  • 1:02:19
    calm you need an invite go to the troll
  • 1:02:22
    room and I'm sure someone can give you
  • 1:02:24
    an invite there and the troll room is
  • 1:02:26
    something that we always have scrolling
  • 1:02:28
    around in the not the background kind of
  • 1:02:31
    the side view corner of my eye during
  • 1:02:33
    every live stream so that we can be
  • 1:02:35
    corrected in real time then sometimes
  • 1:02:37
    get some good one-liner sometimes it's
  • 1:02:39
    just trolling that's what they do
  • 1:02:41
    they're trolls no agenda stream calm and
  • 1:02:43
    thank you very much for that also in the
  • 1:02:44
    morning to the artists who brought us
  • 1:02:48
    the artwork for episode one one one zero
  • 1:02:52
    eleven ten title of that was Kremlin
  • 1:02:54
    crush this was a nice piece we had a
  • 1:02:56
    hard time actually trying to figure out
  • 1:02:59
    what we wanted to choose sir Trent Webb
  • 1:03:00
    has brought us the global warming fear
  • 1:03:03
    meter which I believe we got from the
  • 1:03:04
    evergreens yes it was it back in the
  • 1:03:07
    back
  • 1:03:07
    it was now why did we have such a
  • 1:03:09
    problem choosing art was fine any of it
  • 1:03:12
    to be artsy or compelling nor
  • 1:03:15
    appropriate
  • 1:03:16
    can't really remember I we really like
  • 1:03:19
    the the climate the climate fear ometer
  • 1:03:21
    we like that a lot and what else was
  • 1:03:23
    there that was yeah I mean we're not
  • 1:03:26
    gonna put Elizabeth Warren in though in
  • 1:03:27
    the Pocahontas
  • 1:03:29
    I should mention a couple little tips
  • 1:03:31
    for artists yes here's some tips we have
  • 1:03:34
    tips velocity should be accumulated what
  • 1:03:36
    is one tip it's not necessarily about
  • 1:03:40
    Elizabeth Warren but it kind of applies
  • 1:03:42
    do not put something that is
  • 1:03:45
    unattractive and homely or ugly or some
  • 1:03:49
    like good gruesome something with
  • 1:03:51
    somebody with their head chopped off or
  • 1:03:53
    somebody bleeding from the eyes or any
  • 1:03:55
    of these things that are just repellent
  • 1:03:58
    so when you look at the art instead of
  • 1:04:00
    wanting to click on it and go to listen
  • 1:04:01
    to the show if you're using it as a
  • 1:04:03
    cover art you go oh you don't want to
  • 1:04:06
    get that reaction of does not want to
  • 1:04:09
    happen after somebody sees your the arts
  • 1:04:12
    as artsy as it might be the idea is for
  • 1:04:15
    people to be lured in
  • 1:04:17
    yeah be lured in by a pretty face
  • 1:04:19
    Elizabeth Warren kind of qualifies as
  • 1:04:22
    the not quite but almost like a
  • 1:04:24
    repellant yeah sorry you know what can I
  • 1:04:31
    say I'm with you I'm with you
  • 1:04:34
    she's not gonna work out I'm with you
  • 1:04:36
    Cortez is funny she's got a goofy face
  • 1:04:38
    she's always gonna get it she's but I
  • 1:04:40
    don't still want to see a bunch of
  • 1:04:41
    politicians on the art necessarily no
  • 1:04:44
    not necessarily at all but anyway we
  • 1:04:46
    appreciate the work that all of our
  • 1:04:48
    artists do it makes this show uniquely
  • 1:04:51
    different just before you even listen to
  • 1:04:53
    it it shows up that way in in the
  • 1:04:56
    podcast apps by the way I think we
  • 1:04:58
    recommend overcast is one that adheres
  • 1:05:02
    to the artwork changing even to some
  • 1:05:05
    degree Apple's own podcast app but I
  • 1:05:09
    like I would recommend overcast because
  • 1:05:11
    you you pay Marco you pay him heed that
  • 1:05:13
    he makes it better you know that seems
  • 1:05:16
    like a value system there that makes
  • 1:05:18
    sense how much it to pay I think it's
  • 1:05:20
    two bucks it's two bucks instable two
  • 1:05:23
    bucks a show or two bucks a no just for
  • 1:05:25
    the app just to get the app that's not
  • 1:05:27
    bad
  • 1:05:28
    that means you should charge twenty
  • 1:05:29
    people should pay him 20 bucks he should
  • 1:05:31
    leave it open let people pay what they
  • 1:05:32
    think it's worth what the Apple Store
  • 1:05:35
    doesn't allow for that kind of
  • 1:05:36
    grooviness what I'm saying is you know
  • 1:05:44
    in this world where we're going to see
  • 1:05:45
    podcasts moving away from you can use
  • 1:05:48
    them on any device it'll be any device
  • 1:05:51
    that has Spotify on it as long as you
  • 1:05:56
    have a Spotify account now and like if
  • 1:05:58
    that's the world you want to live in
  • 1:05:59
    fine I think it's better that we support
  • 1:06:01
    our local indepent independent software
  • 1:06:04
    developers for stuff that works for
  • 1:06:06
    everybody
  • 1:06:07
    just the thought all right well we do a
  • 1:06:11
    few people to think as we have a few
  • 1:06:13
    people to thank profusely
  • 1:06:15
    Cicero 1111 we have a bunch of people
  • 1:06:18
    that actually joined the 11-11-11 Club
  • 1:06:20

  • 1:06:55
    shared and the open discussion of topics

  • 1:06:59
    m5m continues to make this the best
  • 1:07:02
    source of information available and he's
  • 1:07:04
    referring to the No Agenda show right
  • 1:07:05
    now after hearing two shows without a
  • 1:07:07
    traditional executive producer in
  • 1:07:09
    January yes something I complain about
  • 1:07:11
    I'm admonishing those who can but don't
  • 1:07:16
    listeners that are douchebags if you
  • 1:07:18
    have time to listen you have time to
  • 1:07:20
    donate in-kind producers remember that
  • 1:07:23
    band that barter only goes so far in the
  • 1:07:26
    real world cash is still king so include
  • 1:07:29
    some of that in your contributions to
  • 1:07:31
    the show congratulations to the two
  • 1:07:34
    associate producers that were promoted
  • 1:07:36
    to executive producers your commitment
  • 1:07:38
    to the show and hard times is noticed
  • 1:07:40
    and appreciated to the one of the
  • 1:07:41
    executive producers there are only a
  • 1:07:43
    hundred and four opportunities a season
  • 1:07:45
    to be an executive producer of this
  • 1:07:47
    highly desirable primetime show this
  • 1:07:51
    show has global reach and is heard by
  • 1:07:53
    influential people around the world it's
  • 1:07:59
    true put your name in the executive
  • 1:08:02
    producer lights for all to see important
  • 1:08:05
    people will note that your supportive
  • 1:08:06
    real-world insight and perspective of
  • 1:08:09
    such a noted and long-running show I
  • 1:08:11
    know no agenda use uses show numbers but
  • 1:08:15
    consider listening yourself as executive
  • 1:08:18
    producer of season 11 episode 20 know
  • 1:08:22
    whatever is appropriate huh what which
  • 1:08:25
    is not a bad idea that's how I was just
  • 1:08:27
    thinking about that good one all right
  • 1:08:29
    so is it what you would do it if you
  • 1:08:30
    were on a TV show yes you're right
  • 1:08:33
    show number one one one one is important
  • 1:08:36
    to know agenda listeners but season
  • 1:08:38
    number and episode number is more
  • 1:08:40
    traditional in the mainstream world and
  • 1:08:42
    may attract more attention in your bio
  • 1:08:44
    huh so we are on the 11th season I
  • 1:08:48
    believe it's season 11 and show it show
  • 1:08:52
    11 I don't think so cuz season 11 began
  • 1:08:56
    with the Anniversary Show in witness at
  • 1:09:00
    October I believe oh okay no and so it'd
  • 1:09:02
    be counted from there so we know sounds
  • 1:09:05
    complicated shows that ended after
  • 1:09:19
    eleven seasons include mash cheers
  • 1:09:21
    Frasier married with children Happy Days
  • 1:09:23
    Murphy Brown and The Jeffersons strong
  • 1:09:26
    producer support we'll keep this show
