EPISODE 80: COUNTDOWN WITH KEITH OLBERMANN A-Block (1:43) 1st SPECIAL COMMENT Is America free? Or are we slaves to the mob rule of Republican gun owners? These Americans - just out for a Saturday night in a place in Colorado Springs that they considered their "haven," just like the children were in Uvalde and just like the shoppers in Buffalo, were killed - directly or stochastically - by Republicans.(5:40) We always ignore the darkest, truest part of the equation of gun violence: there are people in this country who WANT this to keep happening. It is why more children die by gunfire every year than do on-duty cops or active military. And the Republican Party has prostituted itself to these people. (9:10) The 2nd Amendment is a lie; there are 103 words related to money or ownership in the Constitution as amended and none of them are in 2A; (13:41) Right now the President could make enormous inroads into the availability of the guns with which Republicans hunt minorities and children, just by Executive Orders. He must make them, and more over he must lead us in the truth: once again, in Colorado Springs, REPUBLICANS MURDERED AMERICANS. B-Block (18:51) 2nd SPECIAL COMMENT: If you were Attorney General and you were trying to run out the clock on prosecuting an ex-president and make sure it was the clock that got the blame - and not you - you'd do exactly what Merrick Garland did in appointing a Special Counsel nearly two years after the crime (22:08) There are seven major rationalizations for Garland's act. I'll let them by refuted by Neal Katyal, William Barr, Jill Wine-Banks, Bradley Moss, Matthew Miller, Marjorie Taylor Greene, Samuel Alito - and Robert Mueller. C-Block (30:50) EVERY DOG HAS ITS DAY: The extraordinary offer by dog rescue champion/singer/comedian Elayne Booster (31:25) POSTSCRIPTS TO THE NEWS: Nothing new on the James Comer Scandal (32:21) IN SPORTS: Qatar didn't ban beer at the World Cup. It just raised the price to $22,600; the infamous "Mantle Lewd Questionnaire" is up for auction (and I'll tell you about the only baseball document even more profane than Mantle's: the 1898 Special Instructions To Players (38:15) THE WORST PERSONS IN THE WORLD: Geraldo Rivera and Ronny Jackson are no match for Maggie "Trump's Change of Tone" Haberman (40:30) THINGS I PROMISED NOT TO TELL: 40 years ago, the media guy for the NFL Players Union and all but one of the reporters covering the NFL strike talks pranked the one remaining reporter. It. Was. Epic. See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
Trump is expected to formally announce his run for president any day now. His reputation was tarnished after the predicted red wave in the midterms didn't surface, but as New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman reminds guest host Gloria Riviera in this episode, Trump has survived political vulnerability many times before. Maggie talks about who is taking a step back from Trump after the midterms, who's still supporting him, and those who are walking a very fine line. Plus, she shares an anecdote that she left out of her new book. Keep up with Gloria Riviera on Twitter @griviera. Follow Maggie Haberman on Twitter @maggieNYT.

EPISODE 71: COUNTDOWN WITH KEITH OLBERMANN A-Block (1:45) On the Friday before an election crucial to democracy, MSNBC fired its most outspoken host because Fox News complained about her. Where is the protest by Lawrence O'Donnell? By Chris Hayes? By Alex Wagner? Where is the threat to walk out, to boycott, to stand on principle, by Rachel Maddow? (3:10) NBC had to retract a fabricated Today Show story that reignited the fascists' homophobic conspiracy theory about Paul Pelosi. The correspondent was not fired. The Today Show executive was not fired. The head of news was not fired. Tiffany Cross? She was fired. (7:33) Cross joked about "castrating Florida," rightly savaged Alyssa Farah, Megyn Kelly, and Clarence Thomas - and her ratings were growing. But when Tucker Carlson devoted a segment to actually suggesting she was fomenting a Rwanda-style genocide of white Americans, NBC and MSNBC went crazy. (10:10) Joy Reid said something, more personal than professional (10:30) O'Donnell said nothing; then again when he filled in for me while my father was dying in 2010 he tried to replace me as Countdown host and then stole a group of producers from me for his new show (11:36) Chris Hayes, silent now, once stood up and refused to substitute for me when I had been improperly suspended (13:30) And Maddow, who in 2009 stood up and told the president of NBC News and all the executives and talent at MSNBC that if anybody interfered with the content of her show, she would walk out because "I cannot have the audience wondering what else I have not told them" (18:41) But now Maddow is making $30 million a year and the courage to walk out when it could cost you that much, is lacking. Rachel? Will you pretend the firing of Tiffany Cross is not your problem? Or will you stand up for what is right? You know - like you used to. B-Block (23:40) EVERY DOG HAS ITS DAY: Ace in New York desperately needs a foster or adopter, anywhere from Virginia to Maine (24:30) POSTSCRIPTS TO THE NEWS: DeSantis shocked head of The Leopards Eating People's Faces Party ate his face; Musk "likes" meme with quote from American neo-nazi pedophile, and that was the BEST thing he did to Twitter over the weekend (30:19) IN SPORTS: Astros get a World Series Parade; Phillies set World Series futility records; Boston Bruins destroy reputation by signing, then dumping, bully (32:45) THE WORST PERSONS IN THE WORLD: Mark Levin admits his side consists of "White Supremacists" and competes with Jim Jordan and Matt Gaetz padding a 50-page report to 1,050 pages, and former journalist Jason Whitlock going misogynistic, homophobic AND racist all in the same sentence.

CNN Senior Political Commentator David Axelrod talks to Anderson about the key races.

New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman joins Magaret Hoover to discuss her coverage of former President Donald Trump and her new book, “Confidence Man: The Making of Donald Trump and the Breaking of America.” Haberman explains how the pursuit of fame has driven Trump throughout his life and how his years on “The Apprentice” set the stage for his political ascent. She also deconstructs some of the myths he has promoted about his life and his business record. The Pulitzer Prize winner discusses Trump's legacy as president and the fallout from his chaotic final days in office, as well as the political and legal risks he now faces from various investigations. She also reflects on how Trump has warped the reality of the Republican Party and continues to wield influence. As a longtime observer of both Trump and the GOP, Haberman offers insight into whether Trump will run again in 2024, what a second term might look like, and whether anyone in the party would be willing or able to challenge him for the nomination.

Does former president Donald Trump know—and does he care—that the statements he has made undermining the integrity of the 2020 electionrun the risk of undermining the core of American democracy? Is election denialism bigger than Trump's hold over the GOP? What should the Republicans, Democrats, the Press, and others do to counter concerns about threats to free elections in the United States? On Season 4 episode 3 of the ELB Podcast, we speak with New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman, author of the new book, Confidence Man.
SPECIAL EPISODE 65: COUNTDOWN WITH KEITH OLBERMANN A-Block (1:45) SPECIAL COMMENT: This was an assassination attempt. It was meant to be the execution of the Speaker of the House, 11 days before the midterms. It was a political crime, an act of domestic terrorism, an extension of the January 6th coup, the full expression of a new mantra of a political party gone insane, the culmination of the cult of Donald Trump (3:18) And THIS MUST BE SAID NOW by the Democratic leaders and media now cowering behind bothsidesism and electoral mediocrity (4:23) And it must be said by President Biden: that the attempted assassination of Nancy Pelosi was an attack on the government of the United States, inspired by the GOP, MAGA, and Trump. And Biden must also say: IT STOPS HERE. (7:25) Democrats must also push back on the GOP filth who actually tried to dismiss this as a random break-in, like Ronna McDaniel, Glenn Youngkin, and the journalistic whores of Fox News, Newsmax, and others (11:53) And I want to have the conversation about POTUS' emergency powers - big and small (12:42) Because after a week in which Trump threatened to have reporters raped, thugs maced students, militia stalked ballot drop boxes, antisemitism and pro-Putin propaganda was rewarded, and now an assassination attempt - this country is under attack. Friday it was life and death for the Pelosis. Now, it is life and death for the rest of us. B-Block (17:38) FRIDAY'S SPECIAL COMMENT: 90 months for a 1/6 Insurrectionist and 1/6 Committee pursuit of Secret Service turncoats. But two years after the coup and not one insurrectionist politician, stochastic terrorist, or Trump is in jail (18:45) As the midterms loom we must act as if democracy is already lost and we are trying to fire up an electorate - and candidates - who might get it back (22:25) We are betrayed by two supposedly liberal institutions: the political infrastructure and the media, yet CBS, CNN, New York Times, others, are still hedging their bets, ready to protect their profits in case Full Fascism comes to this country (28:00) Instead of making a plain case: Republicans = Fascists, Democrats = Destroyers of Fascism, we are trying to hide under euphemisms and appeasement and fear. (33:40) We have nothing to fear but fear itself. But to paraphrase to FDR but my late friend Bill Hurt in "Body Heat," "Sometimes the fear comes down so heavy I feel like I should wear a hat." C-Block (36:47) FRIDAYS WITH JAMES THURBER: Dog lover Thurber's lovable dog story about an unlovable dog that if you're a dog lover, you'll just love. It's "The Dog That Bit People."

Trump is fascinated with violence, and his damaging childhood has impacted him ever since. And the man who was more interested in winning in 2016 than being president, now really wants the title and the power again— along with the payback.

(29:42) THE WORST PERSONS IN THE WORLD: GOP Chair Ronna McDaniel attacks Biden's stutter and Fetterman's stroke but sucked up to Trump's brain damage and insanity.

In conversation with Tamala Edwards, anchor, 6ABC Action News morning edition Maggie Haberman was part of a team that won a 2018 Pulitzer Prize for its reportage of the investigations into then-President Donald Trump's, and his advisers', connections to Russia. She has also twice been part of a Pulitzer Prize finalist team: in 2021 for reporting on the Trump administration's response to the coronavirus pandemic and in 2022 for reporting on the January 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol. A former political reporter for Politico, The New York Post, and The New York Daily News, she became a CNN political analyst in 2014. In Confidence Man, Haberman uses hundreds of sources and interviews-including many with Trump himself-to offer a definitive account of the former Oval Office occupant's chaotic campaigns, tumultuous term in office, and tortured post-presidency. (recorded 10/25/2022)
Connor, Dan and Taylor get you ready for Saturday night's rivalry tilt with Michigan State. Topics: Dan is mostly made of cheese. Maggie Haberman has interviewed most of this podcast. Michigan State week means it's Dan's time to shine. Averaging negative yards before contact is bad, in our opinion. The receivers are the clear strength of MSU's offense. Unfortunately for MSU, that plays into the strength of U-M's defense. Mel Tucker did not unearth another Kenneth Walker III. The defense discussion goes quicker because they're “pretty comprehensively bad.” The predictions run a wide range, as long as that range includes Michigan winning. Dan will not be facing consequences for any of this. PointsBet is my go-to sportsbook.

With just 2 weeks to go until Election Day, Republicans say they have the edge. We'll break down the biggest House, Senate, and governors' races. The GOP is making plays in House races in blue states like New York and Oregon, and candidates are gaining in Senate races where Democrats held big leads over the summer. Plus, two longtime Trump reporters take us inside the former president's plans for his political future. And fears of voter intimidation in Arizona where people dressed in tactical gear stood outside a ballot drop box site.

Today, a conversation about the media and the Big Lie. Former President Donald Trump's repeated false assertions about the results of the 2020 election — that it was rigged by Democrats and that he, not Joe Biden, was the actual winner — have been ingrained in the public psyche for more than two years. Trump began making his outrageous claims even before the election was called for Joe Biden. It wasn't Trump's first lie, of course. The Washington Post kept a running tally of the false or misleading statements made by the former President during his four years in office. The ignominious total: 30,573. Trump made 492 suspect claims in his first 100 days in the White House. On the day before the 2020 election, the Post reports he made 503 false or misleading claims on that one day alone. In her new book, Confidence Man, journalist Maggie Haberman makes the point that the media wasn't prepared to cover a candidate or a President who lied so frequently, or so brazenly. If that's true, are we prepared now? Trump's propensity for malicious fiction predated his time in politics by decades. But his Big Lie about the election is without doubt the most pernicious of the many falsehoods he has uttered throughout his career. It led to a riot at the US Capitol and the deaths of five people. Has it also brought democracy to the brink of collapse? There is ample evidence that it has. The Big Lie has been picked up and embraced by a slew of Trump's fellow Republicans, as many as 370 across the country who are on the ballot next month. Here in Maryland, two candidates for statewide office, Dan Cox, who is running for Governor, and Michael Peroutka, who is running for Attorney General, are election deniers. Five candidates for the House of Representatives, one candidate for the US Senate, and Cox's running mate are also election deniers. Tom's two guests today have done yeomen's work in helping voters discern between that which is false and that which is true, and we're delighted they have joined us today to talk about how the media should approach coverage of people who deny the truth, for whatever reason. Jonathan Lemire is the host of Way Too Early on MSNBC and the White House Bureau Chief for POLITICO. He's the author of The Big Lie: Election Chaos, Political Opportunism, and the State of American Politics After 2020. He joins us on Zoom from New York.

EPISODE 54: COUNTDOWN WITH KEITH OLBERMANN A-Block (1:45) SPECIAL COMMENT: It is the greatest sound bite of the last seven years. It is what at least half this country has been thinking. It is so cathartic to hear, to be life-affirming. Nancy Pelosi, on 1/6, hoping Trump shows up to The Capitol: "I'm gonna punch him out and I'm gonna go to jail and I'm gonna be happy!" It's the inscription for the base of a statue, it's a national motto, it's a Kate Bush song! (3:50) And knowing we would hesitate to say it has been the fascists' license to threaten and commit violence (5:15) If you're worried we're invoking political violence: this nation is already there. (6:45) We have wasted the 21 months since 1/6 playing nice - this is the only modern country where a violent coup was fended off and the surviving government had to ask nicely to prosecute the insurrectionists.

First, Jake goes-one-on-one with January 6 Committee member Rep. Adam Kinzinger. They discuss whether Kinzinger thinks Trump will testify after the Committee unanimously voted to subpoena the former president, the Republicans attempting to blame Nancy Pelosi for rioters entering the Capitol during the insurrection, and the never-before-see-footage of Congressional leaders during the Capitol attack, obtained by CNN.Next, Georgia Republican Secretary of State Brad Raffensburger joins to discuss how Trump knew he had lost the election before making the now infamous call asking Raffensburger to ‘find' 11,780 votes, and the polarizing effect of Trump's election denying conspiracy theories. Finally, the New York Times' Maggie Haberman gives a breakdown of today's January 6 public hearing, how team Trump is handling the news of his subpoena, reacts to Trump calling her his “psychiatrist”, and tells Jake about her new book on Trump.Hosted by Jake Tapper.To learn more about how CNN protects listener privacy, visit cnn.com/privacy

John Heilemann sits down with the New York Times's Maggie Haberman — the dominant/defining reporter on the Donald Trump beat for the past decade and the author of the instant best-seller Confidence Man — for an epic, two-part episode of the podcast. Haberman discusses her most recent scoop that the Justice Department believes the Former Guy still has classified documents in his possession and how it might increase his degree of legal peril; her long history of covering Trump and what it's taught her about how the outer borough, 1970-80s New York milieu from which he emerged shaped his essential character; what Trump most loves and hates about his media coverage; his performance as a candidate, president, insurrectionist, and potential future criminal defendant — and whether he will run for president again in 2024. Haberman also addresses the criticism that she withheld critical news about Trump for her book; provides an exclusive, never-before-heard audio clip from one of her book interviews with Trump on his handling of Covid; and explains why the Herschel Walker abortion scandal may prove to be a replay of Trump's own Access Hollywood imbroglio. Hosted on Acast. See acast.com/privacy for more information.
In a special two-part episode, John Heilemann welcomes the ultimate ruler of the Donald Trump beat, New York Times Senior Reporter Maggie Haberman, who's also the author of the new book that everyone is talking about, Confidence Man: The Making of Donald Trump and the Breaking of America. They discuss Maggie's recent scoop that that the DOJ thinks Trump still has classified documents in his possession and how this might affect Trump's legal jeopardy going forward; Maggie's over 10-year history of covering Trump and her perception that his uncanny ability to tap into the dark side of human emotions and his strong sense of entitlement explain much of his behavior; the difficulties in covering Trump and why it's hard to get him to make definitive statements; what Trump likes and hates about his media coverage; the truth behind Trump's relationships with women and how to make sense of his carefully worded responses to accusations of misogynistic behavior; the motivation behind Trump's authoritarian impulses; whether Trump is now chastened by his role in the insurrection; and if Maggie thinks he'll run for president again in 2024. Maggie also speaks extensively about the criticism that she withheld critical news about Trump exclusively for her book; and she provides an exclusive, never-before-heard audio clip from one of her book interviews with Trump, where he acknowledges that he was much more aware of the severity of COVID from the very start of the pandemic than he originally let on. Hosted on Acast. See acast.com/privacy for more information.

Hey Pivot listeners! Here's an episode of On with Kara Swisher. Donald Trump has said journalist Maggie Haberman is like his “psychiatrist” — a remark she dismisses as a meaningless and failed attempt at flattery. Yet Haberman does have a deep understanding of what makes the former president tick, cultivated through years of covering City Hall in New York City and then Donald J. Trump for The New York Times. Her recent book, “Confidence Man: The Making of Donald Trump and the Breaking of America,” tells Trump's origin story and chronicles his unexpected takeover of the Republican party and his consolidation of power in Washington. “He's not a political genius,” Haberman tells Kara, “he is a genius about human emotions and a certain darkness in what animates people.” So will Trump run again in 2024? Haberman says that “he's backed himself into a corner where he has to,” but she's not sure whether she'll be covering him. Before the interview, Kara and Nayeema talk about the newsmakers: Elon Musk's about-face on the Twitter deal and Peter Thiel's financing foray into key Senate races and ... a conservative dating app. You can find Kara and Nayeema on Twitter @karaswisher and @nayeema.

Is Tucker Carlson really a true believer in the MAGA world? Has he taken a dive too deep in the Republican rabbit hole? Or is this all just a performance for the ratings? For the money? For the clout? It's a vexing question, according to host Andy Levy on this week's episode of political podcast The New Abnormal. “We've had many conversations about the performative aspect of this and trying to figure out who we think are true believers,” Levy says to guest, the author and CNN political commentator S.E. Cupp. Also on the podcast, Levy talks to guest podcast host Maura Quint, co-founder of Tax March and the campaign director for Americans for Tax Fairness, about a recent Gallup poll finding that trust in the Supreme Court is at a record low. Then Levy tells Daily Beast politics reporter Zachary Petrizzo that the only surprising part of that New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman's new Trump book was that Trump aides were apparently taken aback by his crude, transphobic behavior.
