Hit that like button, otherwise, it will punch you in the throat. And let's just jump into it. And the first thing we're gonna talk about today is the story and situation around Post Malone, which I feel like is bigger than the story around one man. I think it's something that touches on anyone in the spotlight and the relationship and a sense of ownership that people have, whether it be the fans or the internet, in general. So over the past week, we've had a large number of people sharing clips saying they're incredibly concerned about the 24-year old's behavior. This including videos of him stumbling on stage, intensely rolling his eyes as he sings. Right now we have a lot of fans that are protective, concerned, people who are still reeling from the drug-related deaths of people like Mac Miller and Lil Peep. I've seen a number of people with these viral videos, saying that Post Malone's behavior signaled a potential substance abuse problem, though I understand, while these theories were going viral, they were blowing up, you still had a number of fans arguing that this is just how Post Malone performs, others just feeling uneasy about all of the public speculation, in general, even if the intentions were good. You know the push back to that was it's better to be safe than sorry. And as the noise around this situation got louder, we saw Post Malone's father, Rich Post, eventually taking to social media to shut down the rumors. Retweeting a video of his son playing the guitar and singing, adding, "I'm getting tired of it y'all. What does this video say? Coherently playing the guitar while simultaneously singing? Seems a lot harder than accidental slips and stage theatrics." And then continuing, "I don't want to come across as dismissive to those of you who have expressed concerns about Austin. Your sincerity and kindness regarding him is certainly heartwarming and appreciated." We also ended up seeing Post Malone himself address this during a performance in Memphis, Tennessee. - I'm not on drugs and I feel the best I've ever fucking felt in my life. (crowd cheers) And that's why I can bust my ass for these shows and fucking fall on the floor and do all that fun shit, man. (crowd cheers) But for anybody that's concerned here, I appreciate the love and the support, but I feel fucking fantastic and I'm not doing drugs. (crowd cheers) - But he did also acknowledge that there was a dark time in his life where he would turn to drugs but once again assuring fans that he was okay now. - You know, there was a time in my life, a very dark time in my life where, you know, I would try and, you know, find alternate escapes from reality and do drugs. But now I just want everybody to know in this building, that I'm fucking okay and I'm the happiest I've ever fucking been. So thank you so much ladies and gentlemen. (crowd cheering) - And following that, it calmed down the worries of many fans, but also even a number of people saying maybe he just hasn't accepted the problem yet. Once again, that's speculation, and it brings up that debate of is this helpful or is actually something that's hurting? Now, I don't have the answer for that. But what I will say is looking at the concern that there is around artists and the conversation happening around it most of the time, it does somewhat bring a smile to my face, and it makes me feel like the conversation around mental health has greatly improved just over the past decade alone. And obviously, I think that's somewhat connect with the losses we've seen in recent years. But then notoriously, people like Amy Winehouse, someone who, I mean, looking back really didn't get that public empathy that a lot of artists get today. Someone who was very publicly spiraling and instead of just an army of hands reaching out to help, she was kind of villainized, right? So as far as where the right middle ground is, as far as public help and public reaction, I don't know. But that's also kind of the beauty of the show. That's the story. I'm just one person, and I pass the question off to you. I'd love to know your thoughts on this one. And then let's talk about the news and the conversation around misinformation and manipulated media. So last month, Twitter rolled out its policy for addressing synthetic and manipulated media, which said that users could not, "Deceptively share synthetic or manipulated media that are likely to cause harm," with Twitter also saying that it would label this kind of content, and that policy actually went into effect last week on March 5. And ultimately, that brought us to yesterday where Twitter seemed to apply the manipulated media label for the first time to a video that was posted by Trump's social media director Dan Scavino and retweeted by Trump himself. And the video in question was a 13-second clip of Joe Biden speaking at a campaign rally on Saturday that looked like this. - During this primary for my campaign that's about negative attacks and the one about what we're for because we cannot get re-elect, we cannot win this re-election, excuse me, we can only re-elect Donald Trump. - So you watch that and you potentially go, did Joe Biden just endorse Donald Trump? What just happened? Well, it turns out that that clip was actually cut before Biden finished his sentence. And in the original video that we found, we see him say this - We can only re-elect Donald Trump, if in fact, we get engaged in this circular firing squad here. It's gotta be a positive campaign, so join us. - And so, basically, what appears that he was saying was Trump can only be re-elected if we keep infighting. So, obviously, a very different situation and message from the first video that was edited, looking at the situation, right? Twitter's first official implementation of their new policy, it was met with a fair share of problem, because while it has been hit with a manipulated media label, Twitter didn't determine the post violated its guidelines until about 18 hours after. And according to reports by that point, it had already been viewed more than 5 million times and retweeted more than 20,000. Also, it appeared that there were technical problems as well. According to reports, it was a glitch with the manipulated media label itself, with the Twitter spokesperson saying that the manipulated tag wasn't showing in the tweet details and adding that users who clicked into the tweet itself may not be able to see the label, but that it was visible in the timeline, which I imagine is how most people see tweets. Now, one of the other reasons this was a big deal is not only because the content was labeled, but also because this possibly sets a precedent that it shows that Twitter is not scared to crackdown on Trump and his team. And this wasn't just a tweet and a video from Joe Blow, this was coming from people with connections to the administration. Also, Twitter is not alone here, we saw Facebook respond to the video of Biden as well. Facebook did not initially label or do anything to the post but it did prompt Biden's campaign manager to blast the company in a statement last night saying, "Facebook's malfeasance when it comes to trafficking and blatantly false information is a national crisis in this respect. Facebook won't say it but it is apparent to all who have examined their conduct and policies: they care first and foremost about money, and to that end, are willing to serve as one of the world's most effective mediums for the spread of vile lies." But then this morning, we ultimately saw Facebook add a label to the video marking it as partly false information. The Facebook spokesperson saying, "Fact checkers rated this video as partly false. So we are reducing its distribution and showing warning labels with more context for people who see it, try to share it, or already have." And adding, "As we announced last year, the same applies if a politician shares the video, if it was otherwise fact-checked when shared by others on Facebook." But as far what happens from here with Facebook and Twitter, even if they implement this labeling system fast, right, not 18 plus hours, one, I think it's gonna be incredibly hard if not impossible for these companies to implement this policy across the board. Honestly, this clip is probably one the easiest examples and instances that they will face. But it's the small, singular moment and clip where the post on these websites are saying he said this even though the clip is cut in a specific way to change the context. I mean, without being an enabler, there are a lot of different ways that this clip can and will be played, in a way that does not violate the rules. And two, I do believe this is going to happen to Biden over, and over, and over, from today all the way to election day if he gets the nomination, like odds are looking like he's gonna get. Right, because you have Trump, the GOP, a number of Republicans, Dem supporters who oppose Biden trying to label Joe Biden as a old man with dementia. 'Cause the thing is, Joe Biden misspeaks and he will continue to misspeak. Thus, making him a bigger and easier target. Now, the way that Biden supporters have been able to combat that claim, is pointing out that Joe Biden has had a life-long problem with stuttering. Which I will say, I'm completely unfamiliar with the challenges that come with a stutter. And I started looking into it further, because when someone says, you know, they have a stutter, I just think someone that says I, I, I, I, blah, blah, blah. Or looking for the answer, well, how it explains sometimes the odd sentence structure or the word choice. And actually, I'll read a small snippet from this interesting Atlantic article about Joe Biden stutter. I'll link to it down below. The author writes there, "A stutter does not get worse as a person ages, but trying to keep it at bay can take immense physical and mental energy."
