The public failure of his start-up Quibi hasn't stopped Jeffrey Katzenberg from doubling down on tech. A Hollywood power broker, he headed up Disney in the 1980s and '90s and co-founded a rival studio, DreamWorks, before finding a puzzle he could not yet solve: getting people to pay for short-format content. Investors gave him and the former Hewlett-Packard C.E.O. and California gubernatorial candidate Meg Whitman $1.75 billion to build a video platform, but not enough customers opened up their wallets, at $4.99 a month, and Quibi folded within a year of its launch. Katzenberg says the problems were product-market fit and the Covid pandemic, not competition from TikTok or YouTube.In this conversation, Kara Swisher and Katzenberg delve into Quibi's demise, the shifting power dynamics in Hollywood and his pivot to Silicon Valley. They also discuss his influence in another sphere: politics. And the former Hollywood executive, who co-chaired a fund-raiser to help fend off California's recent recall effort, offers some advice to Gov. Gavin Newsom.You can find transcripts (posted midday) and more information for all episodes at nytimes.com/sway, and you can find Kara on Twitter @karaswisher.
Joy Reid begins this episode of The ReidOut discussing why in part Gov. Gavin Newsom was able to beat the recall effort. According to exit polls, the most important issue for voters was the pandemic. Joy and her panel discuss the apparent GOP miscalculation that they can win big with an anti-vaccine, anti-mask platform. Meanwhile, in Pennsylvania, state Republicans -- in a breathtaking breech of privacy -- voted on Wednesday to subpoena Gov. Tom Wolf's administration for detailed records of every registered voter in the state, including personal information like the last four digits of their Social Security numbers. Joy's expert guests give their analysis. Next, we discuss the climate collapse that looms closer every day -- unless our politicians decide to do something about it. And, 58 years ago, on the morning of Sunday, September 15th, four young girls preparing for a ‘youth day' service at the 16th Street Baptist Church in Birmingham, Alabama were killed by a bomb planted by White supremacists. The only surviving victim, Sarah Collins Rudolph, tells Joy Reid how this tragic event -- which also galvanized the Civil Right Movement -- left her with trauma that has impacted her entire life. All this and more in this edition of The ReidOut on MSNBC.

California, land of the crazy, consumed, celebrity, and chaos, had its recall election of Gov. Gavin Newsom on Tuesday, Sept. 14. And yes, as predicted, the recall election was had because it is Donald Trump's fault. This then fueled Newsom to victory of not being recalled and instead, continuing to send California off of the cliff.

Longtime gaming executive and consultant Ed Nigro was in the middle of the battle between Wayne Newton and Johnny Carson to buy the Aladdin Hotel after the mob was kicked out. Nigro was appointed to manage the Aladdin until it could be sold to reputable buyers, and then partnered with Carson in his bid to take over the Aladdin. In this season-ending forum at The Mob Museum, Nigro joins Season 2 host Jeff German and former Gov. Robert List in a discussion about the Aladdin's troubles under the control of the mob and how the state and the courts dealt with it. Nigro also provides a revealing look behind the scenes of the high-stakes battle between Carson and Newton.
In the California recall election, Gov. Gavin Newsom crushed the opposition 64 to 36, though votes are still being counted as of noon on Wednesday. Exit polls showed that voters stuck to Newsom because of coronavirus fears and how Republican governors in Florida and Texas have handled the pandemic. “Election 2022 begins today, really. Newsom delivered the blue wave of the size of which California has never seen,” says Politico reporter Carla Marinucci. Also, more than 2,500 LAPD employees plan to seek a religious exemption from the COVID vaccine mandate for LA city workers. How does someone prove that they have a true faith-based exemption? And Democratic State Assemblymember Jose Medina is confident that Gov. Newsom will sign a new bill that would make ethnics studies a high school graduation requirement.
Jim and Greg are fascinated to see public opinion catching up with the troubling performance of President Biden, especially among independents and women.

19 months, 46 candidates, and hundreds of millions of dollars later, Gov. Gavin Newsom has easily defeated the effort to remove him from office. It marks the end of a campaign that was first launched in February 2020 by a retired Yolo County sheriff's deputy. The governor will stay in office until at least January 2023, when his first term ends — or longer, if he wins re-election next year.

In this edition of The ReidOut podcast: Hip-hop star Nicki Minaj tweeting about a friend of a cousin in Trinidad who allegedly had a negative reaction to a COVID-19 vaccine was essentially the star making public her own vaccine deliberation--a better way to describe vaccine hesitancy, experts say--which is different from refusal. Joy Reid explains how the tweets of this major celebrity have been used by certain right wing figures to further politicize the pandemic, while what America really needs is more open, honest conversation. Plus: Senate Democrats released a new voting bill on Tuesday after reaching a compromise with Sen. Joe Manchin. Yet, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell says it has no chance of passing. Will this spur reform of the filibuster? Sen. Alex Padilla joins Joy Reid on these developments. And: The California recall election that could unseat Gov. Gavin Newsom is just one of over 60 recall elections happening at various levels, Rep. Karen Bass tells Joy Reid, possibly signaling "something bigger at play." Finally: COVID-19 vaccine hesitancy and how to talk to people about it, in the wake of Nicki Minaj's viral "vaccine deliberation" tweets, are discussed by Dr. Uché Blackstock in conversation with Joy Reid. All this and more in this edition of The ReidOut on MSNBC.

Other countries invested in Afghanistan like Russia and China are seeking stability more than anything else.In the second hour Fault Lines was joined by Dr. Bill Honigan for a discussion on the recall election in California. What did Gov. Newsom do so poorly to anger Californians this much, and would they really like to remove him?In the third hour Gene Olinger joined the conversation to talk about the effectiveness of Covid-19 booster shots.

This is Toby Sumpter. Today is Tuesday, September 14, 2021. COVID hospitalization Numbers May Not Mean What People Think They Mean https://www.theatlantic.com/health/archive/2021/09/covid-hospitalization-numbers-can-be-misleading/620062/ David Zweig at the Atlantic writes about a new study just out examining COVID hospitalization numbers. For months, many have assumed that “hospitalization numbers provide a more stable and reliable gauge of the pandemic's true toll, in terms of severe disease. But a new, nationwide study of hospitalization records… suggests that the meaning of this gauge can easily be misinterpreted—and that it has been shifting over time. If you want to make sense of the number of COVID hospitalizations at any given time, you need to know how sick each patient actually is. Until now, that's been almost impossible to suss out. The federal government requires hospitals to report every patient who tests positive for COVID, yet the overall tallies of COVID hospitalizations, made available on various state and federal dashboards and widely reported on by the media, do not differentiate based on severity of illness. Some patients need extensive medical intervention, such as getting intubated. Others require supplemental oxygen or administration of the steroid dexamethasone. But there are many COVID patients in the hospital with fairly mild symptoms, too, who have been admitted for further observation on account of their comorbidities, or because they reported feeling short of breath. Another portion of the patients in this tally are in the hospital for something unrelated to COVID, and discovered that they were infected only because they were tested upon admission. How many patients fall into each category has been a topic of much speculation. In August, researchers from Harvard Medical School, Tufts Medical Center, and the Veterans Affairs Healthcare System decided to find out. Researchers have tried to get at similar questions before. For two separate studies published in May, doctors in California read through several hundred charts of pediatric patients, one by one, to figure out why, exactly, each COVID-positive child had been admitted to the hospital. Did they need treatment for COVID, or was there some other reason for admission, like cancer treatment or a psychiatric episode, and the COVID diagnosis was merely incidental? According to the researchers, 40 to 45 percent of the hospitalizations that they examined were for patients in the latter group. The authors of the paper out this week took a different tack to answer a similar question, this time for adults. Instead of meticulously looking at why a few hundred patients were admitted to a pair of hospitals, they analyzed the electronic records for nearly 50,000 COVID hospital admissions at the more than 100 VA hospitals across the country. Then they checked to see whether each patient required supplemental oxygen or had a blood oxygen level below 94 percent. (The latter criterion is based on the National Institutes of Health definition of “severe COVID.”) If either of these conditions was met, the authors classified that patient as having moderate to severe disease; otherwise, the case was considered mild or asymptomatic. The study found that from March 2020 through early January 2021—before vaccination was widespread, and before the Delta variant had arrived—the proportion of patients with mild or asymptomatic disease was 36 percent. From mid-January through the end of June 2021, however, that number rose to 48 percent. In other words, the study suggests that roughly half of all the hospitalized patients showing up on COVID-data dashboards in 2021 may have been admitted for another reason entirely, or had only a mild presentation of disease. This increase was even bigger for vaccinated hospital patients, of whom 57 percent had mild or asymptomatic disease. But unvaccinated patients have also been showing up with less severe symptoms, on average, than earlier in the pandemic: The study found that 45 percent of their cases were mild or asymptomatic since January 21… [The author suggests that the increase in mild case hospitalizations correlates with the widespread vaccination of the public…] … the study also demonstrates that hospitalization rates for COVID, as cited by journalists and policy makers, can be misleading, if not considered carefully. Clearly many patients right now are seriously ill. We also know that overcrowding of hospitals by COVID patients with even mild illness can have negative implications for patients in need of other care. At the same time, this study suggests that COVID hospitalization tallies can't be taken as a simple measure of the prevalence of severe or even moderate disease, because they might inflate the true numbers by a factor of two. “As we look to shift from cases to hospitalizations as a metric to drive policy and assess level of risk to a community or state or country,” Doron told me, referring to decisions about school closures, business restrictions, mask requirements, and so on, “we should refine the definition of hospitalization. Those patients who are there with rather than from COVID don't belong in the metric.” WA State Troopers & Other Workers Sue Over Vaxx Mandates https://www.khq.com/politics/wa-state-troopers-other-workers-sue-over-vaccine-mandate/article_f957901b-2ae4-507b-bdb5-380612564ac1.html#utm_campaign=blox&utm_source=twitter&utm_medium=social KHQ News: Washington state troopers, prison correctional officers, ferry workers and other public sector employees have filed a lawsuit to try to overturn Gov. Jay Inslee's COVID-19 vaccine mandate. The Northwest News Network reports the lawsuit filed by more than 90 workers on Friday in Walla Walla County says the mandate is unlawful and unconstitutional. The lawsuit says the penalty of being fired for not getting the vaccine is “arbitrary and capricious,” especially for employees who can work from home or have natural immunity from having previously contracted COVID-19. An Inslee spokesperson, Mike Faulk, said the office had not yet reviewed the lawsuit, but added: “We know these vaccine requirements are legal and essential for saving lives.” Inslee issued his vaccine mandate last month. It requires most state employees, on-site contractors and volunteers, as well as private health care and long-term care workers, to be fully vaccinated by Oct. 18. Inslee later expanded the mandate to include workers in educational settings from preschool through higher education. While Inslee did not offer a testing alternative in lieu of the vaccine, workers subject to the mandate can apply for religious or medical exemptions. Previously, the Washington Federation of State Employees sued to delay the implementation of the governor's order. However, the union later reached an agreement with the Inslee administration, which was ratified last week by the membership. FBI Fires Lead Agent in Gov. Whitmer Sting https://justthenews.com/government/courts-law/fbi-fires-lead-agent-gov-whitmer-kidnapping-case The FBI agent credited with thwarting the plot to kidnap Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer has been fired from the agency after domestic violence allegations were levied against him. According to The Detroit News, Special Agent Richard Trask was fired last week while awaiting trial on charges of assault with intent to do bodily harm and allegations that he beat his wife's head against a nightstand following an argument caused by a swingers party they attended. The firing of the law enforcement officer comes amid questions concerning potential misconduct by the FBI during the kidnapping investigation, and whether as many as 12 informants were driving the alleged conspiracy. Trask was dropped as a witness for the FBI following comments he made on social media calling former President Donald a “douchebag” and other things… The arrest and subsequent firing come as defense lawyers representing the accused attempted kidnappers began planning their legal strategy, which includes attacking the credibility of the FBI agents involved in the case. The defense team also plans on alleging the FBI informants, including Trask, entrapped the defendants. The trial will not be conducted until December at the earliest, and the defense team may still attempt to call Trask as a witness despite the FBI dismissing him for the prosecution.

A recall election in California ends Tuesday night. After pandemic-related shutdowns and mandates, can Gov. Gavin Newsom survive the challenge to his liberal policies? Read more:Forty-six candidates on the recall ballot. One governor with his first term on the line. California Gov. Gavin Newsom is fighting to hold on to his seat, with the recall election that could replace him set to end Tuesday night. Newsom needs more than 50 percent of the vote to maintain his governorship. Senior correspondent Scott Wilson says recall elections are baked into California life. Every governor for the past 60 years has been challenged with a recall, but only one attempt has been successful.This recall election could flip leadership of the country's most populous state to a vastly different candidate — and have far-reaching implications for national politics and the makeup of the U.S. Senate.
The special election to recall Gov. Gavin Newsom is Tuesday. As of Sept. 9, a third of mailed ballots have been returned, according to Political Data, Inc. Current polls show Gov. Newsom in position to survive the recall effort. Still, get out the vote efforts remain strong with President Biden visiting California on Monday to help campaign for Newsom. Conservative radio talk show host Larry Elder continues to lead polling for the candidate to replace Newsom, should he be recalled. One critical voting bloc campaigns are vying for is Latinos, who have propelled Democrats to a complete lock on the Legislature and every statewide office from the Governor's office on down. We'll hear reporting on how Latinos are reacting to campaign messages targeting them both for and against the recall, and get the latest voter turnout news on the eve of the election.
During the past year, state legislatures across the country have implemented restrictive voting laws that experts say will stop some voters from casting ballots. Voter suppression is not a new phenomenon in the United States, but lawmakers are coming up with new ways to restrict voting access. In Texas for example, a recently passed state law limits the use of ballot drop boxes and impedes election officials from promoting vote-by-mail, according to the New York Times. Efforts to protect voting rights and access at the federal level have stalled in Congress. Meanwhile, California finds itself in the middle of a gubernatorial recall election in which a small minority of voters could decide the fate of Gov. Gavin Newsom, who overwhelmingly won his office in 2018. We talk about laws and policies limiting voting access and their threat to democracy.

Good Morning, Colorado, you're listening to the Daily Sun-Up with the Colorado Sun. It's Monday September 13th. Today we're joined by Mark Nagel. Nagel was the acting director of security at Denver International Airport on 9/11. The head of security happened to be out of town that day, leaving him in charge. Before we begin, let's go back in time with some Colorado history adapted from historian Derek R Everett's book “Colorado Day by Day”: Today we're going back to September 13th, 1873 when Felix R Brunot negotiated a deal with the Utes that ceded the San Juan Mountains region to the United States. It became known as the Brunot Treaty. At another council that same year Brunot forced a Utes surrender to legalize the San Juan interlopers. Ouray, who sought peace, convinced Ute factions to back the cession. And federal agents awarded him with an annual annuity and a farm near Montrose.
