And he is now the executive vice president of the paley center for media in New York City. Max are you here. I AM how are you that I'm calling from an undisclosed location somewhere western Massachusetts. Right -- today. Ice I understand I understand I thought you might BM in jolly old England. No I'm not and I'm not over and lanky and enjoying the games but. I am I am enjoying a beautiful -- Wednesday to store it is. In Europe. Since Friday and the -- -- -- it's and western. We can't. Yes there was I was not a particularly good weekend -- but they use -- the other all the other weekends eviction feeling better Mac when you weren't here they were beautiful. Are terrific thanks thanks in response to work it -- lets you know at -- -- -- your promised. What -- -- -- Max explicitly explain to me -- the opening ceremonies of the Olympics not to mention all of the Olympics are getting such good ratings I don't get it. How I think there is this I mean in a way it's it's it'll say that the media is it true heart and -- -- as we -- into it I'd call Gerald cast in our program it's really targeted are reporting Uga Boston black. And that. Anyway I mean we really shouldn't. People's very particular place. There's very little -- that appeals to a really -- It has cross generational appeal and the Olympics remains one of -- -- -- few -- and I think. There's there's -- sense. Opting. Everybody can -- front -- the -- screen in the house and watched a lot of -- -- she'd -- like that. You know that you were -- did you teacher about the latest NBC editing problems leaving out the 77 attack in London. Do you know about you know. I think I think they've rehired the guys did that George Zimmerman 911 editing. It's it's really interesting -- researchers at two terrific piece today. We are you surprised by their media critic David Carr. And you know. Starts are talking about all the trouble over. You know Murdoch paper. Use of the world -- -- yes which is going to. Should you know people -- -- At the British tabloids. -- well. He says you know is as is as Regis were doing was he says. The thing is going on throughout. Our trade future. We hear people are cut corners they're sloppy rushing to judgment in in the wrong. We sort of -- You know two major news organizations you know and worse -- lesser charge this in court decision. Obamacare. Sort. That you were talking about a week ago. After that horrible murder cholera or alt a and some guy's name -- side altered how appropriately describe. They're trying to allege that the key part. In this is just slot peace. And out sounds like this and BC it's just the way this -- You you to get sloppy C I think it's I think that there are you know they're they're they're pushing certain elements for the it'll be and how can you say NBC is not in the tank for Obama I mean. They they had they have Meredith Vieira and you know and Matt Lauer talking about how the brits love by the national health key health service I don't think that's true Max. I think it I think the brits are. National health care you know it's funny at all Belmont she's actually -- -- and -- been working for. -- You know audio not economists the -- -- a Financial Times. You know she Richard conspiracy really see all grow. You know. And there socialize and talk to another threat to Britain was talking about you know how his uncle. You know waiting in line for four -- huge treat you know can't treatment and by the time they got to it it was to clean. And it's the same kind of thing if you can't. I don't think it's -- I don't think they think of it as a national treasurer of the way the way Matt Lauer and Meredith Vieira make -- to be like it's a unanimous thing. No I don't think it is at all I don't think it is at all I think it's I think it's it's you know it's it's got opinions like -- all -- -- -- And you know there's there's a reason people make jokes about to pretend they're consistent -- -- -- stupid or your. But. But. Now I think it. I think it's gears there's a -- -- and it's not just say -- eyes. And it's this year. But I do think it's what they are so up -- achieving -- that you don't worse and I think it's. It's gotten so competitive they tried to make markets and so so -- That and the news cycles and so people are cut corners are there there are -- in one of the things our mentions in that piece say -- ABC news basically. You know they say oh okay for some photos or videos but all the money they paid -- K Casey at. That they beat paper defense. You know she can she walked. I mean something. It's just not right that's not the way. You know that you and I were -- -- that's not how we were -- to practiced the business of support turtle know he got a public trust. And any -- its its its future how our columnist can about these people -- in your sport it's. You know we think about things and -- -- people know that's what can but there reporting and restore. That the considerable. That's the difference federal and got it it's much she can got to take your -- intelligence. Major point. I'll do was. Captain sounds like Max is already happy -- hey come on -- I asked them -- partly out of. I cannot expect indication depositors and triple on the job at that well you're you know picking my and and and and an outside guy I think it I'm sorry I -- a little time to change. -- I got to try get a read that story of my cousin Dave that night in the house you read yeah it would no relation right. You know -- 505 says he he won't criticize his old New York but he's now we just stick to TV shows public affairs. Okay that I will do output. Look you know you. Get eight. It's of the segment figures out how how but my chops for yours he part of -- you know liberal establishment. And I'm guilty discharge but. Peek at that but I don't critical on a general. Equity issue investigative reporting that kept saying about the you know jumping to the conclusion -- somebody get the same name is. As a suspect in the murder and and they look at the guy's picture on FaceBook and everything that's clearly not the same guy and all the sudden you're trying to -- about a wide of the. And then they apparently according to the mother of this monster of a they allegedly misquoted her so you know -- They had -- they had two big screw ups and and like you know one in one. Episode of the if the original shown on his Good Morning America. It's really. When that happens you know it's. -- -- we all know I mean look at him you know publications I work for you work for me. You know everywhere -- while some screws up -- to print a correction. At the big story like. There -- sensitivities. You just have to be so so here.

Well no it's are we by the way does. AP he's an out of body troops will be reduced. Yet we have that Chris can we play that for Macs just so it's a body of people began we. Yeah we will have it will have an amendment. They they played up -- stupid girl by -- pink and then they and then they as the intro to a segment on. On Sarah -- It it's just it's just walk you know that's wrong again -- it's. It's just look. If spears is is -- -- Saturday night -- but now are a few weeks ago and they wanted to wanna make a lot of politicians that are. But you don't do -- sure it's just well. So do you Chris. Oh OK we don't have it so I've -- press will will play -- later professor George. Again we don't have we don't exactly have the best equipment in the world by the -- through those commercials. Started secretary. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Yeah there was a lot of there was a lot of news came down fighting spirit. -- And yeah. Sarah Palin and apparently hungry for chicken. -- controversy. That's see that's what's wrong please just don't regret I don't K you know it's -- not a good news shall we just don't do it. And this and that and I'm sure if it was some Smart -- You know. When he every girl from NYU worse Eric years. Yeah I mean it just -- -- it is just don't do and again it's it's -- -- news opinions so I'm so. You know anybody in the public -- whether its president whether it's a -- 1000. But in the news report now don't do it if archer credibility. And then improved quite likely see a problem. When the Sons of Anarchy begins again. A key US Max if Dallas will have more episodes next time very short run this for season. It is I I would think -- it's gonna do appear orders especially given how well. Just discovered white -- love it how long's it been on. -- might be associated to your 4010. OK Jane your next with Howie Carr and Max -- glad Jane. I I did want to ask. How much longer does piers Morgan -- on. Yeah that's a PM good question Jane I mean speaking of hacking scandals -- under a minute but you know I was -- -- -- but. But it's true he bragged about -- Hacking man and now he's now he's Mickey the dollar and so what he has to appear via satellite before before parliament. You know -- -- that's what we call shall. I don't think it's plausible in my ability when you put -- a book that you did something that you've been. Good when there's only when there's a real what amounts to a grand jury calling yours wetness. You know what you -- that but how long does he apple. It's a good question I don't know I think we're embassy. We're gonna see some real changes in the next six months. -- and -- the future -- -- I don't know it's it's. You know there's been a lot of speculation in the Jeff -- -- The Today Show nearly as well but didn't run -- C network as well. What -- I was a Wall Street Journal on Saturday. Fox has twice as many viewers as MSNBC now. In MSNBC has twice as many viewers of CNN I mean that that's that is -- hole. Collapse. -- numbers. It it is a total -- and number but it's interest I was reading this story about Walt got don't know is. -- and it still makes a lot of money. Yeah I know you say that every time but now they're saying that they you know see is in the in the in the US fox is gonna make twice as much an affiliate fees because the ratings are so much higher NC NN. So you -- well it is so like that's. You have twice as much in affiliate fees is it is half a billion dollars a year. I would -- curious about money in you know your role that your little party if you could use -- Really -- -- you know it's gonna keep profits at a Time Warner chairman yes he's really worried about the long ago.

So they'll pull it off after awhile I think that what you gotta do you might if you received about Netflix or -- see if you can I doubt it's. And that's your best bet and get pillow. Yeah thanks -- -- scandal coming back. Yeah breaking bad is great this season out of the ratings compared earlier years. It it is still strong so strong spirit strong coal outrage following spice. Aren't doing very well Curb Your Enthusiasm. Well we're we're -- But I you know we've been asked this before to record showed up -- Larry David. The same thing happens with Larry every time consistency. So that's it I'm not gonna do it anymore I've done. And then.
