Amid protests, media companies face reckoning with racism
"Every one of our daily Bloomberg BusinessWeek shows, Understandably, They're about thes dual pandemics, the virus and the quest for racial justice. And on this, Jason, we caught up with Lisa Ross at the public relations giant Edelman, where she is US chief operating officer. She also leads Adelman's Washington D. C office. She's president there. She also held several roles in the Clinton administration, the Labor Department and she was a member of the inaugural team of the White House office of Women's initiatives and outrage so great voice to check in with media fuels racism. 62% of all of those poll says that in covering the demonstrations against racial injustice, the news media has focused on rioting at the expense of peaceful protest. So I think that's something that people have felt. Something has been alluded to, But thiss research indicates is that actually true, the second one that there was. There's a little bit of a stench, which is Problematic that some people have to see it to believe it. So we did this research the first time in June and overwhelming numbers said that that Americans believe that systemic racism exists and overwhelming numbers says that business and brands have a responsibility to take a stand and to do something. Now when he went back into the field, So that was June, went back into the field in early August. Did it found a little bit of a dip, quite frankly, between the murder of George Ploy and early August And then when Jacob Blake was shot We went back into the field, and it went up. And so interesting that and particularly it went up in two categories. Republicans and people 55 older and so after the shooting of Jacob Blake, there was definitely an increase in the number of people who support protests. Ah, and the people who definitely thing to believe. Yes, Systemic Racism does exist, but interesting that we saw when we didn't see some of the incidences. Third ominous insists this is a space where I live. Super high expectation for business but low marks on business response today. So you know, when this first happened, everyone was making a statement. Everybody was releasing their data. Black lives matter. I stand against racism so forth and so on, and it was all attributed to the CEO. So definitely a sense all summer long appreciate the conversation. But what have you actually done that Its like, had actually done least I want to jump in. And we've we've been looking after. Have Richard to Richard. Gentlemen, join us several times to talk about this barometer on as it's you know how it has been. Certainly through the pandemic. Talk to me. You guys were at the nexus of talking to so many different CEOs. You have this high level. No conversations. I do wonder. You know, everyone's saying it's going to be different this time around, but I you know, I'd be really wealthy lady if I got a nickel for every time I heard that, you know, there are high expectations right of business to do the right thing and not just talk about okay, we're gonna do No, a focus group and we're going to do this. We're going to do that, but rather really make some change to make sure that they have a diverse workforce that they have diverse suppliers in their supply change. I mean, the's air, the things that move the needle so Are you having this high level conversations? And do you have those high hopes that things actually do change? Carol, you're spot on and everything that you've noted that saying something is one thing doing something is dramatically different and the respondent Overwhelmingly agree. So yeah. Um, I I believe that things will change because the CEO is that we're talking to are intimately concerned and involved about these issues, but to be afraid for many of them, this is uncharted territory. You know, when we first started advising many CEOs were like I want to say something. But health isn't in order, and I'm like, yes what No one's houses in order. That's why we're having the problems that we're having. But you still have to speak out. You know a lot of for CEOs. A lot of this for us is these air lived experiences for many people, and for many CEOs who are overwhelmingly white, male, mainstream Christian Straight I the list experiences. Other people seem to have does not affect them. And so in many ways they're trying to catch up culturally with what's happening in the rest of the world. Now is the intense there absolutely is their heart in the right place. Absolutely. But many of them are catching up in their learning about things, which I think is impeding some of the progress that we're making. What they're learning. I mean, where

Barr asked prosecutors to explore charging Seattle mayor over protest zone
"From The New York Times put Seattle in the spotlight, Attorney General William Barr reportedly told federal prosecutors to consider charges against rioters. And tonight he's asking the Justice Department to explore possible criminal charges against Mayor Johnny Durkin for allowing the Capitol Hill occupied protest known as Chop to form. It's all part of a nationwide crackdown on protests. Violence comes Joe Moran alive tonight with the mayor's response and the legal implications, Joe Preston Durkin calls this effort just the latest abuse of power by the Trump administration. And some legal scholars agree. The lawlessness that descended on the Capitol Hill organized protest or chop may lead. The legal action by federal prosecutors for the New York Times says Attorney General William Barr singled out Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan is responsible for the violence that unfolded His own, where police steered clear. They're saying that the mayor may have violated criminal statutes, and it's very serious criminal statutes simply based on the discretionary decisions that she made where to deploy. The police went to pull them back Bar also once rioters charged with sedition trying to overthrow the government. It's a statute constitutional law professor Andy Segal calls archaic, but basically it is a junior versus city treason charge for her part, Dirk and accuses the Trump Administration of using the Justice Department for political purposes just weeks away from an election, saying It is particularly egregious to try to use a civil rights laws to investigate, intimidate or deter those that are fighting for civil rights in our country. Siegel doubts Durkin would ever be charged and sees this as a play for swing voters. I mean, I think it's mostly about the reelection, it's about how they're centering these protests and try in the election campaign and trying to make make it seem like the U. S. Is under attack. The mayor has a fuller statement that we've posted on Cuomo news dot com and she is expected to address the matter directly during a press availability tomorrow. Back to you All right, Joe. Thanks, And now there's this within the last couple of hours. U. S Attorney, Brian Moran released a statement about this New York Times report writing that he's had multiple conversations with Department of Justice leadership about protests in Seattle and the chops only said quote. At No time is anyone at the department communicated to me. The Seattle mayor Jenny Durkan, is was or should be the subject of a criminal investigation or should be charged. As you may recall, the chop zone evolved out of the protests that began in Seattle. Back in May, Protesters gathered on Capitol Hill for days. On June 1st police set up a barricade to protect the East Precinct. In a week later, the barricades were removed. That's what protesters took over six blocks of the neighborhood. Calling at the chop zone on June 22nd Mayor Durkin declared. It was time for people to go home and two days later. Some chop organizer's tweeted that the project was indeed over. On July 1st. The police moved in after Mayor Dirk and issued an executive order authorising police to clear the streets
How Police Misconduct Affects Cities and Taxpayers Financially
"For months. Protests over the police involved killings of Briana Taylor, George Floyd and others reinvigorated an intense debate over policing. Then the mayor of Louisville, Kentucky, announced the city would pay $12 million to Briana Taylor's family and institute. A number of police reforms that highlighted an aspect less discussed the financial impact of police misconduct on cities and taxpayers. NPR's Cheryl Corley reports. City's Khun face hundreds of lawsuits every year, charging, among other things, that police used excessive or deadly force or made a false arrest. Many times. Details of settlements are hidden behind confidentiality agreements. Law professor Joanna Schwartz studies how jurisdictions budget and pay for police legal expenses, she says. Although payouts Khun Total in the millions more often there in the thousands of dollars range and with an important determining factor, the number of cases filed and the number of dollars that are paid to resolve cases. Depends very much on where in the country you live claims against Big City Police Department's cost taxpayers about $300 million last year. One of the arguments in the ongoing protests over policing is that money for police could be better spent elsewhere and the clash between protesters and police following the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis. Means Minneapolis and other cities could face a myriad of legal cost. In Chicago. Several groups work to resolve cases of people who have been wrongfully convicted. Two years ago, a federal jury awarded $17 million to Jack Rivera and was considered one of the largest police misconduct settlements in the city's history. I say that was kidnapped by the Chicago police, Roger Li. 55 years old. Now Rivera spent 21 years in prison for a murder. He did not commit framed, he says, by a now retired Chicago gang crimes. Detective Rivera is one of at least 20 who have been exonerated in cases where that detective lead the investigations. They set out to rob You convict me for whatever reasons why Rather, it was just a con the community that they got the perpetrator. Or whatever it may be. It's still not right because taxpayers have to pay for it. Victim's family have to relive this all over again what they think it's closed, and it's just painful for everybody. Over the past decade, Chicago has paid about a half billion dollars for police misconduct. Rivera attorney Locke Bowman is the head of the MacArthur Justice Center at Northwestern Law School, he says in cases where misconduct is clear, said he's often continue to fight against the allegations for months, sometimes years, and that could mean a hefty price tag for taxpayers. The decision to settle a case like that early ends up saving money for attorney's fees. And can result in Ah lower settlement before everybody gets dug in, and the price of the case goes up insurance policies and local budgets usually pay for judgments and claims. Jurisdictions hurting for cash may borrow issuing bonds to spread out payment, add bank fees and interest to investors. And those cost pile up with taxpayer's footing. The bill for police misconduct and as covert 19 devastates budgets nationwide. That could be a more frequent scenario. Chicago City Council Finance Committee Chairman Scott Waguespack says the city is working to break that expensive pattern and concentrating on police reforms so that we're not just saying, Okay, here's another settlement and good job negotiating it and move on, but really look at the deep seated issues within the department to start rooting out those problems. Activists argue tying police misconduct cost to police budgets could help prevent police wrongdoing as well as making police officers especially repeat offenders financially accountable. Currently so called qualified immunity rules shield officers from those costs that's changed in Colorado State representative Leslie Hair. It was the force behind the state's decision to drop its qualified immunity provisions. A new law requires officers guilty of wrongdoing to pay up to $25,000 and that if they were found to have acted in bad faith, violating someone's right, possibly ending in death. That they actually had to be held person responsible, just like anyone else who violated their policies and their obligations at their work with the law also allows officers to purchase liability insurance. Other jurisdictions looking to reduce police related lawsuits may follow that hybrid model of splitting settlement costs between cities and individual officers that just as victims or the families of people injured or killed by police misconduct.

I was filming an arrest. She works in a radio. She's filming an arrest when suddenly deputies show back up Within seconds I was getting shoved around.

What with the tactics that drew scrutiny after the demonstrations formed outside ST Francis Medical Center. We'll let me share them with you. Some individuals who claim to be black lives. Activists showed up. At the hospital. Now the families are being rushed to the hospital. Obviously police, other police officers of going there as I'm sure you know, in a situation like this trying to get through to you. To donate blood, for example. Well, my understanding is that the black the veal and activists Uh, that's a pretty nasty things to say about the officers. Let's go to cut 11 1st Rob! Got your black families care board prize African Town coalition. We're out here at ST Francis Hospital, where Tio America's most notorious gang members have been brought to We're going to go up here and just check on Ah, these murderers right here and see what's that?

They're telling us that we cannot come in here and see these individuals who have been shot down train station. So what? Okay, This is a public that probably has no problem. That young woman. Whoever she is, basically stood down a crowd. They're going to go visit. Yeah, they're going to go visit. Finally there's a priest at the hospital who came out and talked about what is going on Cut 31 rub. Describe for me what the protesters were chanting. What were they saying? Well, they were saying death to the police killed killed the police and this our sheriff's, but the message is still the same. And they were using all type of curse words and and derogatory terms about the police just just provoking our police officers unacceptable behavior because the hospital should be a sanctuary where way should leave hospital alone. Tensions are high since two deputies are inside. Did you see the negatives make swift action. And he said that the protesters trying to get inside the emergency room? Yes. Unbelievable. Un believable and then we have the radio reporter. Remember The Washington Post article in the Globe today they refer. Police and protestors tactics drew scrutiny after demonstrations formed outside ST Francis Medical Center with the deputies received treatment. That's it. The Washington Post had no interest in describing what had happened. And then you had this nut job radio reporter who, as the police had trying to clear the area. She's trying to interfere with the police. This is cut 41 40 to rub cut 41. Back up. It continues. Hearing cut 42 here. Just what the police needed in that situation, have another distraction and the executive a editor of this radio station, so called NPR radio station. KPCC, or public radio National Public Radio affiliate. Expressed outrage over the arrest of the reporter. No outrage, though, over what the demonstrators tried to do to enter the hospital as these police officers Life lives hung in the balance. This one doesn't really outraged you that I don't know what does this is this's as as bad as it gets. I don't care who you are or what you think if you don't condemn this action by those literally, vigilantes, we're going to go visit these people in the hospital. Oh, yeah. They were in the operating room. Feel free. Just go in and say hello. I'm sure that they'd love to see you. And by the way, we'll clear the doctor's out of there. So maybe You can finish him off

The story of Trevor Lawrence's life-changing summer
"So we just discussed how Trevor Lawrence is influence has been growing this off season I taking on issues of public health and racial inequality. But last month. The very thing that gives Trevor Lawrence his enormous Megaphone College football was put in jeopardy as players in conferences. Having. These discussions about canceling the season. What role in those discussions did Trevor Lawrence play. It was a Sunday night early August enduring. Trevor. Together again. There at travers fiancee's apartment and rumours are starting to pick up steam that some of the biggest most powerful conferences in college football the Big Ten PAC twelve that they're seriously considering, postponing their fall season, and this is coming at the end of a week. When of PAC twelve players have released a statement on the Players Tribune using the Hashtag we are united. And they've threatened to out fall CAM even opt out of games unless the conference mixed their demands for fair treatment and safety regulations and less the conference addresses concerns over racial justice, and meanwhile on a nearly parallel track, you have players the cost, the country, trevor, and fluted tweeting the Hashtag. We want to wait to express their desire to keep the seasonal live. So, in the Sunday night when it feels like college ball is teetering, it's actually dairying who decides to reach out to Dylan bowls. One of the players the Pactel's we are United Movement because endearing mine Houston gain. If we all join together the players in the we are united movement and the players in the we want to play movement that would be undeniably powerful for players who don't have concrete power who don't have a real seat at the table at least not yet their collective voice with the really hard to ignore because truly. So many of these fires want the same thing they want to play football this fall, they just want to do it in a safe responsible way. Dylan Daring, trevor they get on a three way facetime called a hash all this out to make sure they're all on the same page and that very quickly evolves into a zoom call with a dozen or so some of the biggest names in college football right Justin fields chew behind nausea. Harris And matter of thirty minutes, they agree to roll out a list of demands from this new fused Mecca Movement. It was amazing. How quickly we all got on the same page put something together I feel like the majority was getting spoken for. And we were like, Hey, we WANNA play. We want it to be safe but we do to take a watt mandated and universal safety procedures for Covid nineteen and they want to form players association. And it pretty much the stroke of midnight. These players, Tweeden Unison. But it's trevor naturally whose tweet is hurt the loudest he's re tweeted some fifteen thousand times including one quote tweet from President Donald Trump, and it's just a few days later actually that someone from the White House reaches out to Amanda Lawrence Trevor Lines mom letting her know that the president would like to get in touch with trevor. So hold on. So he has the president of the United States listening to him. Now let alone all of his peers across college football. What was that conversation with Donald Trump? Like? You know I would have loved to be a fly on whatever wall in whichever room that phone call took place the president has said really that trevor just reiterated his desire to play this season but trevor for his part hasn't divulged too much about that phone call. Conversation it was good I mean we just talked about kind of the whole we talked about that. We WanNA play like how's it going? How's it looking for the season and? president trump was just saying, yeah, I think our country needs college football and. then. Some small talk. Yes. We a little bit about what was going on in my life and vice versa. So that was pretty much the conversation though trevor is twenty years old the president of the United States wanted to speak to him. That is remarkable crazy. No matter which way you cut it. So. Let's recap here Halley Grossman because since March Trevor, Lawrence Age Twenty has faced pressure to help mitigate a global pandemic fight racism save the College football season display a level of political savvy and or gamesmanship that is obviously well beyond his years. So what else can you possibly be asked to do at this point? I mean look putting your stamp of approval which he's done on a list of demands that includes creating players. Association is a big deal. That's a radical way to reimagined that amateurism model that governs. College football right now but I think what this summer has shown is that trevor doesn't plan to quiet down you just a few days ago a whole lot of guys that original zoom call we talked about reconvened because they revealing again from a police shooting of a black man again, and so in the days after Jacob, Blake was shot. Trevor and Darien and Dylan, and a whole host of others talked once again to hammer out ways to help to draw attention to the issue and hopefully bring change. Trevor Lawrence football season is starting tomorrow and if all goes according to plan. He's GonNa win the heisman before becoming the first overall pick in next year's NFL draft teams have been salivating over his talent. There have been rumors that teams might even want to tank for Trevor Lawrence this season. So the question really that is, why is he even putting himself out there like this? Why even play the season? I mean that is the question, right? We have seen plenty a high profile opt-outs this season jomar chase at Lsu. Mike Parsons at Penn State today. Oregon. These are first round top ten NFL draft guys but no one literally nobody has less to lose by not playing the twenty twenty football season than Trevor Lawrence. are in a player having a job borough like. Or I don't know an asteroid hitting the earth, his Cossacks to go number one overall are safe, and at the same time, no one has less to gain by paddling the status quo or shaking up the current system than trevor does this system works just fine for him? He is a young white man. He's a young white quarterback, and so I asked Amanda, his mother that seems washing. Why? Why do all this? I put himself out there and she said something interesting she said look. there. are players out there who do need to even if trevor doesn't and there are people out there for whom the status quo and the current system don't work even if it works for him and he understands that now probably better than he ever has and he just wants to help. That's really it know told me one of his goals for the senior only meeting because he wanted everyone to understand that unless everyone is good no one is good and trevor, his best friend took that to heart. Of the day, there's so much division in our country. Just word of some people that WanNa see people together, WanNa see people love each other and I think that's where a lot of the things I do. It stems from that just wanted to see people happy together not divided. With all this pressure now from all of these different places in our country. Landing Atop. Trevor Lawrence's shoulders. What are you personally expect from him when the season starts? Because of the ways in which Trevor Lawrence has stepped onto center stage this summer it's almost easy to forget what it is. That gives him that stage in the first place, he is extremely good at his job. Term Lawrence is an excellent quarterback. Making predictions in two, thousand, twenty, hundred, probably a fools errand. But tomorrow, there's football comes we'll pay wake forest, and if clemson continues to play if they and the ACC and the big twelve and sec are able to play a full season, don't be surprised to see Trevor Lawrence back on the national championship stage. Don't be surprised to see Trevor Lifting the national championship trophy and along the way don't be surprised to see trevor continuing to speak out and perhaps that's one of the safest predictions you can make in twenty twenty. Life to be reflection of what I say and what I believe I've been thinking about everything that's going on and I think there has been some some moments where I had to say some things because it's just the right thing to do and it's time really is just how I live my life I want it to reflect what I say. I. Would always be the same person I want to be consisted. Eliot Grossman. Thank you for jumping on stage with. US. Thank you so much for having me. Pablo.
