If after the six o'clock news you could tell me what the four don't look it up. Don't look it up. In the past. What 50 years last 50 years?

I just give you big. I think I know I'm gonna tell you off there. Okay? Thanks. CAF. Help because I helped you with the last one. Did he She? I don't know. The Cubs won before, but it really wasn't true. I guess. No, The Cubs were wrong. Actually, This is just the family fighting. I'm sorry. You have to be a witness to this. Um okay. So let's get serious for a second, because you guys have a big story tonight on human trafficking coming up Correct. That's right tonight. We're talking with the experts and also looking at some of the bigger headlines. We've all seen human trafficking in the headlines and Now they're saying that some of these conspiracy theories that are out there floating in the Internet in the celebrities that have been allegedly related to those conspiracy theories are actually hurting. People who who do need help and who are currently being trafficked. They're not wanting to call in to those hot lines because so much misinformation is out there. So we're looking into that and what we can do to make sure the people who need help are really able to get it. I'm sorry. I'm a little slow. But are you talking about like pizza gate and things like that? No que and on one of them one of the groups out there that has been circulating information, you know, even in the spring, Oprah Winfrey came out and said, You know, she's in no way tied. Um, to any type of, you know, child human trafficking ring out there. So you know, we're gonna need from names like that. We have so much information at our disposal more than ever. And we're I think less informed than ever are willing to believe it's just so destroyed. It's unfortunate it is especially when you have something so emotional that people You know they want to help. But there have no connection to some of these, You know stories out there, but yet they're calling in. That's what the experts are saying and sharing misinformation, and that's really bringing down their efforts to try to stop human trafficking. It's big issue. It's a much bigger issue. I think that a lot of people realized so we look for that tonight on news nation. The story in human trafficking. Let's switch gears completely. The queen and her family usually go to Sandringham for Christmas. There, castle. There are palace but they're not this year, right? Not this year. Tradition kind of going out the window.

Queen Elizabeth and her husband, Prince Philip will just spend the day at Windsor Castle. They may be seen some family members briefly. Of course they'll be following. They say the guidelines to make sure they're safe. But An interesting point of all this in the U. K right now, they're actually relaxing some of those restrictions for the festive season to allow people to go see friends and family. Interesting. They're letting families form these Christmas bubbles. Three households can socialize for certain days. We'll see how that goes Well, and so, yeah, I think they would go to I think, is it in Sandringham? Where they have? They showed them walking down the lane and going in the church for all the big holidays? Yes. Big tourist attraction. They won't be doing that this year.
