by the time he said " like" for the 20th time I decided he had nothing serious to say...

Mike Bloomberg proved that genius doesn't necessarily translate from one team to another.

I believe that the moral relativism of the right wing in America is killing people. when you believe that everything you do is legal and right and everything your opponent does is illegal and wrong there's nothing beneath you in your efforts to win at all costs. You undermine a vote to help veterans exposed to burn pits out of spite and lie about the reason. several vets commit suicide before you correct the vote. You lie about the election results. several people die at the Capitol. You lie about the FBI raid. a guy attacked the FBI and gets himself killed. Lying in pursuit of power isn't uncommon. Such cheap rampant lying at the cost of human life is upsetting .

I'm really struggling to find a reason to give a shit about this interview.

interesting podcast but I have to point out the statement about Florida having the same COVID death toll as California is wrong. when viewed on a per Capita basis, Florida is 50% higher than California. if California had the same death rate as Florida it would have lost almost 50,000 more people.

regarding the Brody awards...not sure if wad a live take or edited, but the last question to the female critic was shocking. in the middle of her answer Brody impatiently interrupted her mid sentence and forced his viewpoint upon us. both Brody and the Daily's host owe her an apology.

AOC gave a perspective that didn't show her unwillingness to compromise so a bigger part of BBB could be implemented. Pull up your big girl pants and face reality that compromise is a two way street when we are saddled with blue dog democrats. President Biden is herding cats and faced every obstacle from every angle. Yes I want the Green New Deal but we didn't get it is just as much as on AOC as anyone else. And don't go to Florida for holiday where covid runs rapid and not be masked and bring it back.

I'm so sick of this topic. no one gave me anything. ever. Because I was white. I watch black students get all of the money, the breaks. those whose families made more than ours. I done with this. Go to real America.

I have been a Wes Anderson fan before most heard of him. I looked forward to the French Dispatch & paid $19 to watch it from my bed. I watched it twice. Turned on closed captioning not to miss any quick dialogue. Maybe I'll like it better in a few years.😎

80% of the country wants to keep Roe. if Roe goes it may be the only way to get rid of Trump & his rigged Republicans.

Listening to Parul, for example, is another reason why I won't renew my one-year trial subscription to the New Yorker.

I'm so sick & tired of hearing about George Floyd' murder many more men have been murdered from all races. if you want change with the whole country behind you you need to highlight new situations & include white males at the hands of police. it happens. I have seen it in my family. the 24/7 coverage has desensitized the American public to his murder. "Defund" only helps increase fear & racism of black males. Work with that & stop banging your heads against the wall by ending the Filabuster.

Does the U.S really has a right to talk about human right? The non-stop wars and massive bombing in the Iraq, Sudan, Syria, etc yet "What does the administration have to show for eight years of fighting on so many fronts? Terrorism has spread, no wars have been “won” and the Middle East is consumed by more chaos and divisions than when candidate Barack Obama declared his opposition to the invasion of Iraq. In 2016 alone, the Obama administration dropped at least 26,171 bombs. This means that every day last year, the US military blasted combatants or civilians overseas with 72 bombs; that’s three bombs every hour, 24 hours a day."--- The Guardian. If you are the president and terrorism exists in your country, what would you do to tackle the issue? China has tried ALL possible solutions: anti-terrorist signs, peace campaigns, big-red banners with peace quotes hanging around the country, identity check at customs. Yet, terrorism still rampant. So tell me, what would YOU do if you are the president and terrorism thrive in your country? At least the Chinese government sent children of the Uyghur family to kindergarten and primary schools to receive an education, instead of bombing the entire country and massive killing the innocents. Moreover, jobs such as cotton harvesting and working in textile manufacturing sitea are given to the Uyghurs for them to make a living instead of deprive their lives through approaches mentioned above. Subsequently, it is these approaches to terrorism that substantially plummet the extent of death rate due to terrorist attacks.

The story on race in the tax code is race-baiting, irresponsible garbage. The New Yorker and The Radio Hour should be ashamed of this level of pseudo-journalistic trash. The interviewed guest out-right admitted that the effects are fully mediated by wealth (for which we have good direct measures). She merely injected race as a proxy or surrogate measure for wealth--as if all poor people are black and all black people are poor. (Imagine if that logic were used as a legal defense regarding lending decisions.) Her methods and interpretations were clearly reverse-engineered, and should be condemned by anyone who understands responsible research. (But then, responsible research doesn't get you interviewed, does it?) Not only does this create a needless wedge issue that further divides society and foments us-vs-them stories (with imputed and implied racism), but it also misdirects public policy. By her lights, we'd collectively address her racialized red herrings rather than the actual problems of economic inequality. This pseudo-journalism isn't merely wrong and misdirected, it also actively harms society. Moreover, in a pragmatic sense, it risks alienating voters who are capable of thought and would prefer to address the actual issues rather than fueling unfounded hate. I had expected more from The New Yorker than click-chasing, race-baiting, weak-minded, destructive, pseudo-scientific rabble-rousing.
