by two shirtless figures — one native american, one african — and the idea was people objected to it because of the racial hierarchy depicted in that statue. it was removed earlier this year, early 2022, after being there for 80 years. do you think that was the right thing to do? and what would you like to see in its place? i would like to see in its place africa rising, which is a statue... ..which is a commission that i did for general services in 1997, which is, you know, downtown, completely obscured, because it's in the...�*s in the area of 9/11. i think it was absolutely right to remove... remove roosevelt's statue.

because i think it's the best trash there is on television. i am not in the business of brain surgery. i am in the business of fluff. >> that's the fantasy element. at a time when the access is possible. it's escapism, and it's aspirational. you want to stand in a hot tub with a glass of champagne, rock on. >> we've never seen that kind of wealth ever before. we didn't mock it. we didn't say it was right, and we didn't say it was wrong. we were just through the keyhole. >> sometimes it absolutely amazes me. i walk away from a shoot and i think, well, we did it again. >> there was more of everything in tv by the '80s. your opportunity for watching stuff is increasingly vast. >> nbc presents "real people." >> my name's michael lee wilson. this dawned on me, that the application of a small motor on a pair of roller skates might really be a great thing. >> somebody once said that each one of us will be a star for 15 minutes, and i think that that's probably going to happen.

what happened to the individual citizen, that citizen took his strength from god. mark: pretty much when the declaration of independence say you have politicians like obama and others they read it, they leave out the part about the cr creator. at the founding of this nation is the judeo-christian belief system, they talk about it, god given rights, that right and wrong is the s same thing whether you are born in america or china. good and bad is the same thing regardless of who you are. mark: i have a few final words. we'll be right back. nicorette knows, quitting smoking is freaking hard. you get advice like: just stop. go for a run. go for 10 runs! run a marathon. instead, start small.

>> here is the thing, as you understand better than anyone. this isn't simply rhetorical. right? you have this happening, yes, on some dark corners of the internet. but you also have it happening mainstreamed and mainlined with people with a lot of access with a lot of -- you have republican elected officials who are taking some of these threats and using it to inform policy. so i am thinking of something, like, don't say gay act out of florida. where you actually have this not just in conversation, but actually shaping policies in shape states. that actually seems like where the attention needs to move. >> i mean, this is a deadly combination. the combination of the extremist rhetoric that we are seeing. the political attacks, and the real people taking violent action in the streets. we can't look away, and we can ignore. i also want to name that there

pinpoint one thing when we are looking at what motivates women to come out and have their voice heard. but the amalgamation. and i think another something i'm socially cited about in the summit is that we are zeroing in on -- what is multigenerational. we saw record registration votes for the youth. and i think this is really important as we look at that arc of women engaging. >> it is so interesting. because there was always sort of this hammering about a generation that had always lived in a time when roe had been legal, and abortion had been legal as a result of roe, and whether or not they would be motivated, whether or not they would understand, it whether or not they would be fired up. i think we got an answer on that question. it strikes me, both in the context of abortion, and in the context of childcare. very often these get framed as women's issues, rather than being framed as economic issues, right? rather than people understanding the ways in which they affect the overall u.s. economy, both as a push and it's a poll factor. i would seem to me that that is

>> yeah. there's nothing you can do about it, jen. my advice to you is that you just enjoy being a child for as long as you can. i know i did. it was the best two weeks of my life. >> alex is a little bill buckley. the "wall street journal" is his bible. he has a tie to go with his pajamas. he's a very conservative and very intense 17-year-old. >> the first thing your teacher is going to ask is what did you do over the summer? a lot of kids will say i went to the zoo or i went to the beach or i went to a baseball game. what are you going to say? >> i watched the iran contra hearings. >> if mom and dad thought this generation was going to the dogs, think again. this is the generation that has discovered hard work and success. >> american culture is changing in the '80s. and in terms of television, there's a whole notion of demographic segmentation. >> networks were beginning to not be afraid to appeal to a very specific demographic.
