In 1981, Apple’s Steve Jobs said computers would free us from drudgery

Talk about stepping back in time.

Big Tech is under relentless assault from federal regulators, privacy advocates, its own employees and other critics over a host of issues related to privacy and content.

But back in 1981, when Apple was just a few years old, a bearded 26-year-old Steve Jobs extolled the virtues of the computers and brushed aside concerns about privacy during an interview with Ted Koppel on ABC News’ “Nightline.”

The newscast, which is currently on YouTube, opens with scenes of all the ways that computers were inserting themselves into everyday life — from checking out at the market to depositing checks at the bank to handling credit card transactions. “In some areas, computers have replaced humankind,” the narrator intones.

Under questioning from Koppel, Jobs defends the computer and predicts it will have a major impact on every facet of life.

“This is a 21st-century bicycle that amplifies a certain intellectual ability that man has. After this process has come to maturity, the effects that it’s had on society I think are going to far outstrip those that the petrochemical industry has had,” says Jobs.

Koppel counters by saying: “There is a sense, though, that many of us have, how don’t really understand how computers work or what they do for us, that we are getting controlled by the computers. Any danger of that happening?”

“Well, as you know, the product we manufacture, many people see it for the first time, and they don’t even think it’s a computer. It’s about 12 pounds, you can throw it out the window if the relationship isn’t going so well,” Jobs says. “And I think if you look at sort of the process of the technological revolution that we’re all in, it’s a process of taking very centralized things and making them very democratic, if you will — very individualized, making them affordable by individuals for a small collection of tasks, if you will, sort of from the passenger train to the Volkswagen.”

The Apple co-founder — who explains that computer literacy can solve most of the potential problems that Koppel brings up — says personal computers will free a person from the drudgeries of life, allowing more time to work on the conceptual, creative level.

During another part of the short segment, journalist David Burnham notes that the Census Bureau helped locate Japanese-Americans in 1941 to throw them into internment camps and frets that computers could open the door to horrifying new possibilities in the future.

IS FACEBOOK GETTING RID OF ‘LIKES’?

However, Koppel points out that plenty of previous inventions have had dual purposes.

“Is our society alert enough to understand the power of the computer and to turn it toward the good things?” Burnham responds. “Or are there people and occasions where we use this tool for a bad purpose?”

Democrats hope Ukraine-based impeachment push is the ‘Cinderella slipper’ that will finally fit, Greg Gutfeld says

Democrats supporting an impeachment inquiry into President Trump hope the Ukraine-related allegations are the “Cinderella slipper” that fits, according to Greg Gutfeld.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi reportedly told her caucus the phone call between Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky in July is a simpler device to use to explain their actions to the American people, Gutfeld said Monday on “The Five.”

“Nancy Pelosi said why this phone call was important — it was because it was a simpler, clearer way to impeach Trump so that the public would understand it,” he said, seemingly referencing a report by The New York Times.

“This has all been like a Cinderella slipper,” he said. “They’ve been searching for that one shoe that’s going to fit and they went through a warehouse of shoes before they got to this one. But if they don’t get this one, they’ll just find another.”

Earlier on “The Five,” the “Greg Gutfeld Show” host compared Democrats’ insistence on finding an impeachment narrative that sticks to a DJ trying to find the perfect remix.

“They keep remixing the same horrible song hoping that it will be a hit,” he said.

“If you want to get rid of this guy because of his personality, just realize this is going to come back and haunt you because you’re going to have half of America that is going to go after your guy or girl.”

Earlier Monday, the chairmen of three House committees subpoenaed Trump personal attorney Rudy Giuliani on Monday for key documents related to the Ukraine controversy as part of their formal impeachment inquiry against the president.

“Pursuant to the House of Representatives’ impeachment inquiry, we are hereby transmitting a subpoena that compels you to produce the documents set forth in the accompanying schedule by Oct.15,” Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Eliot Engel and Oversight Committee Chairman Elijah Cummings wrote.

Giuliani, the former New York City mayor, played a key role in seeking information from Ukrainian officials on former Vice President Joe Biden’s dealings with the country, along with those of his son Hunter.

Jesse Watters slams Hillary Clinton: ‘For her to finger Trump as being crooked is complete hypocrisy’

Fox News’ Jesse Watters slammed former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton Monday for calling President Trump‘s presidency “illegitimate” during an interview with CBS News that aired Sunday.

“She’s a crooked person. And for her to finger Trump as being crooked is complete hypocrisy,” Watters said on “The Five.”

“Talk about foreign interference in an election. How about all those tens of millions of dollars that poured into the Clinton Foundation when she was secretary of state or running for president? Was that influencing the election at all? Or the 9 million dollars you paid a foreign agent to influence the last election called the Steele dossier.”

HILLARY CLINTON ON UKRAINE CALL: TRUMP ‘HAS BETRAYED OUR COUNTRY’

Clinton was asked during the interview if she gets angry when Trump continues to say she should be “locked up.”

“No, it doesn’t kill me, because I know he’s an illegitimate president,” Clinton told CBS News. “I believe he understands that the many varying tactics they used, from voter suppression and voter purging to hacking to the false stories… there were just a bunch of different reasons why the election turned out like it did.”

Co-host Greg Gutfeld addressed the possibility of Clinton jumping into the 2020 Democratic primary.

“She’s like a drunk loitering outside a bar waiting for it to open — and that bar is the presidency,” Gutfeld joked before emphasizing that Clinton would likely be careful in order to avoid embarrassment.

“However, she doesn’t want that first line in her obituary to be ‘I lost to Trump,'” Gutfeld said before co-host interjected adding “twice.”

Former Democratic National Committee chairwoman and co-host Donna Brazile gave a dour forecast for the 2020 election after Perino noted that 2000 Democratic Al Gore nominee conceded during a closely contested election.

“Nobody wants to concede any more. We want to continue the next fight and.. this campaign now is going to be another exercise of what I call gutter politics,” Brazile said.

Amazing ‘shapeshifter’ robots could explore Saturn’s moon Titan

New shapeshifting robots from NASA could give us new access to far-flung parts of the galaxy — including Saturn’s moon Titan.

The Shapeshifter concept is being developed at the space agency’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California, and NASA describes it as a “contraption that looks like a drone encased in an elongated hamster wheel rolls across the yard, then splits in half.”

The Shapeshifter concept is something that will eventually allow for exploration of Saturn’s moon Titan, which is the only other world in the solar system known to have liquid in the form of methane lakes, rivers and seas on its surface, according to JPL Principal Investigator Ali Agha.

“We have very limited information about the composition of the surface. Rocky terrain, methane lakes, cryovolcanoes – we potentially have all of these, but we don’t know for certain,” Agha said in a statement. “So we thought about how to create a system that is versatile and capable of traversing different types of terrain but also compact enough to launch on a rocket.”

NASA sees Shapeshifter as comprising several autonomous robots, known as “cobots,” that would be able to self-assemble into larger contraptions. They would then be able to move together or separate depending on the needs of the mission.

Agha sees a “mothercraft” type of lander that would touch down on Titan and serve as an energy source for the cobots while also carrying scientific instruments. Flight is easier on Titan, which has a dense atmosphere and low gravity.

“It is often the case that some of the hardest places to get to are the most scientifically interesting because maybe they’re the youngest, or they’re in an area that was not well characterized from orbit,” Jason Hofgartner, JPL’s lead scientist for Shapeshifter, said in the same statement. “Shapeshifter’s remarkable versatility enables access to all of these scientifically compelling places.”

Pro-Trump super PAC files FEC complaint against DNC over Ukraine outreach

Westlake Legal Group Manafort Pro-Trump super PAC files FEC complaint against DNC over Ukraine outreach fox-news/politics/2020-presidential-election fox-news/politics fox-news/news-events/fox-news-investigates fox news fnc/politics fnc article Andrew Keiper aa043896-2549-5da2-9f87-79493f5d7039

The Democratic National Committee has been hit with a Federal Election Commission complaint that accuses a former DNC contractor of acting improperly to gather information on Paul Manafort and Donald Trump in the 2016 election, according to a copy of the complaint given to Fox News.

The complaint, filed by the pro-Trump Committee to Defend the President, hinges on the work of Alexandra Chalupa, a contractor hired by the DNC during the 2016 election. The DNC, the complaint alleges, “tasked Chalupa with obtaining incriminating or derogatory information about Donald Trump … [and] Paul Manfort.”

In May, Fox News reported that the UkrainianEembassy confirmed that Chalupa had pushed for Ukrainian officials to publicly mention Manafort’s financial and political ties to the country. The disgraced former lobbyist is currently serving more than seven years in prison for financial fraud related to his work in Ukraine.

Chalupa, according to the complaint, sought to have the Ukrainian government provide her information about Manafort’s work in the country. She was encouraged by the DNC to meet with former Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko to gain insight that would theoretically boost Hillary Clinton’s bid for president.

“The White House has been pushing this narrative to distract from Donald Trump’s gross abuse of power in pressuring a foreign country to interfere in our elections. No one is buying it.”

— Adrienne Watson – Democratic National Committee

“The embassy got to know Ms. Chalupa because of her engagement with Ukrainian and other diasporas in Washington, D.C., and not in her DNC capacity,” said former Ukrainian Ambassador to the U.S. Valeriy Chaly in a statement. “We were surprised to see Alexandra’s interest in Mr. Paul Manafort’s case. It was her own cause.”

Ken Vogel, a New York Times reporter who wrote about the story for Politico in 2017, tweeted that Chalupa wasn’t representing the DNC during her meetings with Ukrainian officials. That point is overlooked in the complaint, which alleges that acquiring something of value in a political campaign from a foreign government is a violation of campaign finance.

“The White House has been pushing this narrative to distract from Donald Trump’s gross abuse of power in pressuring a foreign country to interfere in our elections,” said Adrienne Watson, a spokesperson for the DNC. “No one is buying it.”

The complaint is signed by Dan Backer, a lawyer well-known in conservative circles for his legal work around campaign finance – often against Democrats. This year, he’s filed FEC complaints against Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., and Joaquin Castro, D-Texas. Previously, he’s founded political action committees against Ocasio-Cortez and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif.

“It really comes down to the hypocrisy of the Democrats. It’s the same thing they’ve been doing year in and year out. … It’s that kind of hypocrisy that I think really frustrates Americans.”

— Dan Backer – Committee to Defend the President

Backer is listed as the treasurer for the Committee to Defend the President PAC, the organization behind the complaint, on the Federal Election Commission website. Backer said the Chalupa complaint has been on his radar for some time, and this seemed a good time to file – given the recent impeachment inquiry against Trump undertaken by House Democrats.

“It really comes down to the hypocrisy of the Democrats,” Backer said. “It’s the same thing they’ve been doing year in and year out. … It’s that kind of hypocrisy that I think really frustrates Americans.”

The complaint, like his others, will likely be stuck in limbo for the foreseeable future as the FEC doesn’t currently have enough commissioners to legally meet – rendering it toothless. After the resignation of former Vice Chairman Matthew S. Petersen in August, the agency is left with just three commissioners, one short of a quorum and three short of a full roster.

“It’s abundantly clear that they only care about breaking the rules when they can point their fingers at somebody else that they think is doing it,” said Backer.

Senate Judiciary Committee member Ted Cruz, R-Texas, said that Washington continues to be dysfunctional and that the House of Representatives has become “consumed with hatred.”

Members in the Democrat-controlled chamber should remember the mood during the 1998 impeachment proceedings against then-President Bill Clinton, he said on an episode of the”Fox News Rundown” podcast to be released on Tuesday.

“Well,” he said, “it’s time for the Democrats to move on; 2016 is over. Hillary Clinton lost. Get over it.”

GOP LAWMAKER DIGS UP AUDIO OF SCHIFF TELLING PRANK CALLERS HE WOULD ACCEPT TRUMP DIRT ON UKRAINE

He also offered host Dave Anthony his take on whether President Trump’s impeachment proceedings would bear fruit for the Dems.

“Under the Constitution, the Senate is the jury for any impeachment and that now I’ve been saying for a year that I think the House will impeach President Trump,” Cruz said.

More from Media

On the other side of Capitol Hill, Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-Fla., criticized Democrats’ impeachment inquiry by posting a two-year-old prank call in which House Intelligence Committee Chairman Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., told two Russian radio hosts posing as a Ukranian politician that he would be willing to accept damaging anti-Trump information.

Gaetz on Sunday tweeted an edited clip from the eight-minute-long phone call.

In the clip, Schiff, D-Calif., tells the Russian shock jocks, who were posing as Andriy Parubiy, the former speaker of Ukraine’s Parliament, that he would be willing to accept dirt on Trump from the Ukrainian.

It comes as Republicans are pushing back at the House Democratic impeachment inquiry over allegations President Trump pressured the Ukrainian president into investigating the family of 2020 rival Joe Biden.

Tom Brokaw accuser ‘very disappointed’ in Rachel Maddow for supporting NBC News colleague despite harassment claims

A woman who accused NBC News anchor Tom Brokaw of sexual misconduct is “very disappointed in Rachel Maddow” and has called on women in power at the Peacock Network to demand a proper investigation of her claims.

Linda Vester, a former NBC correspondent and former Fox News anchor, alleged in 2018 that Brokaw made unwanted advances toward her twice in the 1990s, including a move to forcibly kiss Vester, who was in her 20s at the time.

She has since emerged as a champion of the #MeToo movement and repeatedly has questioned the way NBC and parent company Comcast handled the situation.

Brokaw denied the allegations and had scores of female colleagues vouch for his character. NBC News Chairman Andrew Lack has addressed the allegations only briefly, and Brokaw remains at the scandal-plagued network.

Vester spoke to New York Media’s The Cut about whether or not coming forward was worth it — and blasted Maddow in the process — in a feature published Monday.

“I thought coming forward would be empowering and would help other women,” Vester told The Cut. “A short dredging up of old memories and then it would be over. I was wrong about all of that.”

Vester said Brokaw’s female colleagues rushing to his defense was “shocking” and essentially signaled, “if you come forward, other women will shame you.” More than 60 women, including some of NBC News’ biggest stars, signed a letter supporting Brokaw only two days after Vester first went public with her claims.

“Some people who I had worked with — one of whom had called herself my mentor — had signed that letter. I was also very disappointed in Rachel Maddow. I think NBC did a great disservice to its female employees by conducting what I consider a sham internal inquiry.”

“Some people who I had worked with — one of whom had called herself my mentor — had signed that letter. I was also very disappointed in Rachel Maddow,” Vester said. “I think NBC did a great disservice to its female employees by conducting what I consider a sham internal inquiry.”

Vester then said she thought women in power at NBC News “like Savannah Guthrie and Mika Brzezinski and Rachel Maddow” should call for a proper investigation.

“It’s one thing for them to be marketed as female power and all for the sisterhood. But they’re not using their megaphone to make women truly safe,” Vester said.

NBC News did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

NBC WON’T LAUNCH FULL INVESTIGATION INTO TOM BROKAW ALLEGATIONS

“It’s one thing for them to be marketed as female power and all for the sisterhood. But they’re not using their megaphone to make women truly safe.”

— Linda Vester

When reached for additional comment, Vester told Fox News, through her attorney, that she tried to arrange an appearance on “The Rachel Maddow Show” shortly after the MSNBC host signed the letter but never received a response.

MSNBC did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Back in April 2018, The New York Post reported that NBC declined to launch a full internal investigation into the claims made against Brokaw.

“She’s given her side, and he’s responded. They don’t feel there’s anything left to investigate in the case,’’ an NBC source told the Post. “We may make further inquiries if more information emerges.”

Lack sent a memo to staffers noting that NBC took similar allegations “very seriously,” pointing to the ousting of former “Today’’ host Matt Lauer as proof, the Post reported.

However, NBC News kept its review of Lauer’s misconduct in-house, as opposed to enlisting a white-shoe law firm — which is typically standard when dealing with sex harassment. Despite calls for an independent investigator, the Lauer review was headed by NBCUniversal General Counsel Kim Harris. It eventually found that NBC News management was oblivious to Lauer’s behavior.

Lack also oversaw NBC News when it famously refused to air Farrow’s reporting on sexual harassment from now-disgraced Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein. Farrow took his work to the prestigious New Yorker, where it won a Pulitzer Prize and helped launch the #MeToo movement.

Farrow is expected to tell his side of the story in an upcoming book, “Catch and Kill.”
