Now Bobby did you see Neil Marr Rocha interview with Savannah Guthrie this morning a morose as they root and vile person. She kept saying she's being protected. For speaking out and from prosecution. What do you think is rejecting her. He. Bobbie she recorded the president. Who and what else did she record to steal. Or take pictures out. Shouldn't there be an investigation. Now one of the reasons she was fired was because she was new unauthorized. To use White House vehicles. And apparently she was taken a White House we go home every night. Just can she was entitled Jewish she deserved it you know. How many post it note and it's. Jagr around and and a soon all of pens and pencils are still in the dark. What else say in on the attack tried a Bob thousand to one Phil or woods never win again. Big Dodgers shot 64 in a major. I would say he out he's gonna win again. I don't think you'll ever won a major. Again. And again came as close as they possibly can but the field is just too deep. These guys are too young and too strong and too good. Bobby believe they're not my time life book series tells the story and a man who was killed her snoring too loudly. My fell out from bone heads in the news GL it was famous. Famous outlaw on the west. And she's somebody out there remembers that and his name is gone out of my hand right now but he. He did should demand for snorkeling. To allow me Bobbie that doll fraud hostage story was a rare but Dana. Tale. From rebounding. Out. Bob sorry couldn't resist. You cops don't come any closer. The fraud and crooks. Yeah I think alcohol or drugs may have been involved in that story as well. And Bobby I have a question this is not a criticism just curious about what percentage. Of the text messages that you receive. Our rent on the air probably I would say. 95%. It's probably am pretty close. Now we have this story alas. Week and now you may have heard me shared with you the time. When that they had lined senate Democrats. Circulating plans or government takeover of the Internet this is a story that was on zero Internet large amount now a Virginia senator Mark Warner. Was a circulating. Something entitled. Potential. Policy proposals. For regulation of social media and technology firms. As these firms FaceBook YouTube all the rest some Google all the rest are not on the Airpwn. Doing everything they can't to I keep my conservative. Viewpoint some we saw what happened. You know with went last week with a number of conservative web sites. We're. Bounced off of FaceBook. And a number of people texted me. About an effort that was under way to counteract. Now what's going on with these social media monopoly is now who want to have on their own definition of now what is hate speech. On the Internet. My name's. Aims to challenge social media monopolies with freedom and a decentralized. Network. This is a story that I was on the web today the daily call. Censoring conservative voices lawmakers are struggling. To decide how best get in the practice if at all. My means MI ND ES mines dot com. Is a fast growing free speech alternative. That emphasizes transparency and privacy. Few platforms and challenge the virtual monopolies of FaceBook Google and Twitter. And they have crushed nearly all competitors as and whatever happened to MySpace. But what makes FaceBook Google and Twitter week is where challengers see potential. The three tech companies have come under fire for their data collection and privacy and censorship policies together. They control almost everything users see on the Internet. Almost. In balancing transparency and privacy. Block chain. Aims to change the way social media operates. No major social media platform. Utilizes block change one word. Except. Mines dot count. Now blocked chain works like this an individual makes a transaction request. That request is processed. Any person to person network of computers called notes. In oh DES no woods then validates. The transaction which can be anything. A financial transaction a message of video what have you. What makes blocked chain unique. Is it's in corrupt ability. Every transaction is recorded and stored. Making fraud nearly impossible. While lawmakers struggle to decide how best to handle platforms should censor voices for their political news. Whether through regulation. Or declaring them public utilities. Millions of users are leaving them entirely. Many of them are going to minds. In her FaceBook Twitter and you job I YouTube's biggest threat mines. Dot com. He social media platform that is essentially a hybrid. Between all three companies. No other alternative. Utilizes block change the way that mine starts. In an interview with the daily caller news foundation minds CEO and co-founder bill off mine. Explained his alternative to Twitter FaceBook and you chip. YouTube of course is owned by Google. What makes mines is different is its transparency. Odd man explained. Anyone can look at how mind spun shams and see that it's not spying on accusers. The platform is a hybrid between decentralized. And centralized network. Hopman says decentralized. Networks are the future. Mine's foundational principles privacy. Transparency free speech are essential. All of our code is open source meaning anyone can look at. Some alternatives are not open sourced if you're not going to give your community the software code how can you expect him to trust it. While FaceBook and Twitter can shadow ban conservatives. Users can look at minds code and see that it doesn't. And isn't able to do that. New users are flocking to mines every day. There's coverage of FaceBook or Twitter or Google censoring conservative voices. Mine has doubled its active user base in July. And now has and over 11 point four million users. From a wide range of political beliefs including conservatives and liberals as well as nonpolitical users. Then just wanna discuss their favorite movies where the users are similar interest. Channel banning. It's one of the most dangerous things for social media out and said it's totally unsustainable. For the entire media industry. There needs to be an ethical alternative. The reality isn't FaceBook Twitter and Google are punishing certain pages and we don't know why because they won't share their coat. Minds on the other hand. Emphasizes. First Amendment principles over everything else if it's illegal in the US you can post it on mines. Application stores on the two major Smartphone operating software developers apple and Google.

Against former us. Maybe you know like. I can mr. structure can start to go fondly page that they are legal bills. All the lawsuits. And that this year it's going to be facing holy cow. As 625 here in the above they match you know. Oh yeah I achieved before we went to the brake and almost done again distraction for pre out about it. You know of course that privacy on the Internet last privacy on the Internet now. Virtually nonexistent. Parent. Chardonnay from the Associated Press Casey going to actually do is that when they get away from political stuff. Ashley you summon right. Google wants to know where you go so badly. But they're recording your movements any you eve done it when you explicitly tell Google not to. And Associated Press investigation found that many Google services on android devices and iphones. Store your location Daytona. Even if they've used a privacy setting. That it says it will prevent Google from doing so. More now. Computer science or researchers at Princeton. Confirm these findings at the request of the AP. For the most part Google is up front about asking permission to use your location information and apple like Google Maps. Will remind you. To allow access to your location if you are using it for navigating. If you agree don't let that record here location over time. Google Maps will display that history for you in a time line that maps out your daily movements. And and an investigation. By the Associated Press found the Google saves your location history. Even if you have Paul was. Location history on your mobile device can. And I have a depiction of a map showing where Princeton privacy researcher. Go and any car traveled over several days from data saved who is Google account despite. He is turning location history. Off. Storing your minute by minute travels carries privacy risks. And has been used by police to determine the location of suspects. Such as they warrant that police in Raleigh, North Carolina served on Google last year define devices Neary murder scene. So the company will make you pause a setting called location history. Google says that will prevent the company from remembering where you bin. Google's support page on the subject states. You can turn off location history at any time with the location history off the places you go or no longer stored. And wrong. Not true. Even with the location history paused. Some Google apps automatically store. Time stamped location data. Without asking. It's possible. Although laborious. To delegate. For example. Google stores a snapshot of where you were when you merely open its maps app. Automatic daily weather updates on android phones pinpoint roughly where you are. And some surges and have nothing to do was a location like chocolate chip cookies. Or kid's science kits pinpoint your precise latitude and longitude. Accurate to the square foot. And save it to your Google account. The privacy issue affects some two billion users of devices that run Google's Android operating software. And hundreds of millions of worldwide iPhone users who rely on Google for maps or search. Storing location data in violation of a user's preference is wrong. So Jonathan Meir Princeton computer scientist former chief technologist for the federal communications commission's enforcement bureau. A researcher for Myers a lab confirmed. The Associated Press its findings on multiple. Android devices. The AP conducted its own cast on several iphones and found. I know you're stunned to hear this the same behavior. If your going to allow users to turn off something called a location history. Then all the places where you maintain. A location history should be turned off. They professors and seems like a pretty straightforward position to have. Yeah but then again I wanna know where you are and brave men out of every day. And lecture by game so they can turn around and sell it. Wow 630 year in the balmy night show and he's ready to go and a new center I'm right back with a last half of the bonus hour including.

Apparently that's the idea behind today and editorial writing initiative. That is enlisted scores of newspapers across America. The Boston Globe. And in after the paper the that the story on us a couple of years ago money for any of the Boston Globe and a bunch of lefties up to existing storage it. Yeah they were really a pain and listening friendly might actually get treated fairly decent. The Boston Globe has been contacting newspaper editorial boards proposing a coordinated response. To president trumps escalating. Enemy of the people rhetoric. We proposed a published an editorial on August 16. On the dangers. Of the administration's assault on the press. And I ask others to commit to publishing their own editorials on the same date. They globes said in its page not to fellow papers. The effort began a few days ago as of Saturday we have more than 100. Publication signed up. And I expect that number to grow in the coming days said Marjorie Pritchard.
