As I keep pointing out, given the The nature of what's taking place mail in voting changing Election Day. All this other baloney that's going on that's intended to help the Democrats. We need to win by a bigger margin than we did in 2016. And we're only going to do that. If you get 5 to 10 people to vote. And make sure they vote. If they're going to vote for the president and right down on the Republican ticket. If we can hold the Senate and we could take the presidency. And even if we squeak by and take the House of Representatives It will be the most remarkable election in American history. And we'll get our country back. And more things will be happening than ever before. I don't know if you saw that interview with Nancy Pelosi and Wolf Blitzer. Blitzer for the first time, and maybe a decade actually woke up and acted like a journalist. I was shocked. It's certainly the exception to the rule. But even Nancy Pelosi came off like an absolute buffoon. Like she was absolutely insane. She actually said CNN was working for the Republicans. And the Wolf Blitzer was working for the Republicans. That's that's how Mentally deranged. She is Is really quite shocking. I'll be right back in.

And as the public and anybody they have respect for our family to prayer for us. Saying no, cut it out, because that very my said no. Me right and it's not gonna bring my son back. And that is the father of Walter Wallace Jr. Who Was saying that, you know, stop this stuff. Stop the stop the looting. All of the awfulness that has been going on now for the past several past two knights. Welcome to the show. I am Dana Lash. In a lash dotcom. This was wasn't this was his Wolf Blitzer interview, right so The father was talking. I pull. Here's my notice. Okay, I'm pulling up transcript cause I want to make sure there was one point In this when He was they were discussing because it was Wolf Blitzer and he was interviewing interviewing the father and They also head on this guy Charles Ramsey, who is the network's law enforcement analyst. And He said. The transcript shows, he says, Every shooting is concerning a tragedy of its own. We have to take a careful look at this thorough investigation to find out whether or not the use of deadly force was justified. This was a call for a man with a knife. The officers were seen backing up. The individual was coming toward them with a knife. Neither of these officers were armed with Tasers, which would be a less lethal weapon. And he says, I know fillies in the process of trying to get Tasers for all of their patrol officers, etcetera. And Wolf Blitzer asks. Well, the victim had a knife as you saw, one witness, said. Ken Mental health issues, they said, and then he asks, But why shoot to kill? Opposed to shoot to injure. And just prevent anything from going further and Ramsey's response was not good, he says. Well, officers are trained to shoot what we call center Mass. No officers are trained to stop. A threat. End of story. This idea of all shoot to kill first off, stop with the rhetoric. They're trained to stop a threat. If a person doesn't pose a threat. Or if the person stops advancing towards police. Then that person is no longer considered an immediate threat. I really wish that that would have been Adequately. Conveyed in this This is that whole thing. It's like what Joe Biden was saying. Well, why can't they just shoot people in the leg? Oh, you mean a smaller moving target? He sounds like someone who's never seen a gun, much less ever fired one or ever has even done any kind of force on force training. I've done force on force training where I've had someone because most self defense instances are anywhere from like seven, actually, said 7 to 15 ft. On average 7 to 10. And so you would be surprised when someone is charging you full force. How much ground taken cover in 10. Ft. How much 10 ft. King. How long 10 ft last. I mean, it's like, seconds. It's like boom boom. And we did training a lot of training on that toe where we had to make the determination. Winn to defend ourselves. And at what point do you do that Because it is shocking how quickly somebody could move 10 FT. So people who say this kind of stuff you don't have the training. To give you any kind of credibility. To even analyse the situation, much less make proclamations about it. And isn't that what isn't that what media and and journalism is about not engaging in embarrassingly uneducated speculation. Actually distributing fact based information. Or if it's editorial Wisdom and experience from people who have Who have histories and have experience with this or training. I just It's just It's just silly. Now. Why the idea? Shoot again? I'd shoot to stop a threat. The police. Don't sit here and go. Okay, Well, we're going to fire a shot near theirs are warning shot because there's this thing called gravity. I mean, you realize if you fire a warning shot, it doesn't just disappear into the ether, right? It's not caught up in the sky by angels or anything. It. It comes back down. Just like science. I and there are a lot of people who are injured and killed. Oh, annually because of that stuff. Not kidding. So the idea that I I just wish that people would have fact base fact based discussions about this, but instead they're there. Ideological zealotry prevents them from having informative discussions. Because it suits their ideological stance better to stay. Ignorant about issues. And when someone has a knife in there, charging you I don't care what the other variables are. You don't have. There's no such thing as a right in the United States to charge someone with a knife. Doesn't There's there's There's no right that just there's no right for that. You don't have a right to do that. I can't believe you could have apparently explain it, but Have you the coverage of the looting? Oh, my gosh. Some of the stuff that I saw is awful, just awful. Apparently marchers. Black lives matter. Antifa got into a fight. Because they both wonder March different places. And so antifa went one where one way and black lives matter went another way. Julia Roses was there. He's been tweeting up video. Yes, but the Philly the protest crowd. They were trying to figure out which way to go. And it Wass. I mean, there, there's there were roadblocks and It. Ah lot of business destruction, The footlocker was looted. And the target was was looted. Ah, this And then there was another one. A CBS last night was looted. And Someone had pointed out. Well, you know you're on the target. There's bread in there No, seeing him by coming out with bread, because that's what Alexander Acosta Cortes said. I mean, it is It's I mean, looted the WalMart.

The Verdict on Trump's Economic Stewardship

"President Trump speaking to the economic of New York and various economic clubs across the country and we had questioning from Senate O'CONNELL of the Economic Club of Florida David Rudenstine of DC and Mike. O'Neill. The New York we have Michael McKee with us now our chief. Correspondent for all things economic both and. and Michael a very serious conversation here the president's putting out some ideas couple of inflammatory statements like how Joe Biden Presidency would be a socialist dream in American nightmare. But at the end, he was asked about things like infrastructure stimulus national debt did we hear anything new from the President? No, but we haven't been hearing much new from him throughout this campaign. It's he mostly talks about what happened in the previous three or four years and he talks a lot about, of course what happened to the Obama Administration? The questions he was asked about infrastructure spending he didn't answer. He said what he always says about many different things that he has a plan, but there's never any plan they were coming close to a deal on infrastructure at least Democrats in the House and the president when the President got upset with Nancy Pelosi and broke off the talks and that was two years ago and nothing's been done on infrastructure since. The House and Senate have a very big differences about how you would pay for infrastructure and how you'd structure the program. He said today the walls one of the biggest infrastructure projects ever. That's not true. He did shut down the border under the guise pandemic protection. So that part of what he said about the wall was correct he was asked about the deficit. and. Has Somebody. Else says quite often about this. This is one of those. Up his down down his up trump statements, he said the deficit was falling and we were GONNA pay off interest costs and start paying down principal on the deficit before the pandemic hit. That's one hundred percent one, hundred, eighty degrees opposite from what was happening deficit was rising significantly before the pandemic because of the tax cuts so. It's hard to know exactly what he was trying to do other than insult. Joe Biden and and stir up his base. Yes. Absolutely I think that's probably what we can expect from him. As we approach the elections three weeks left and we're going to get viewers questions. You know at some point tomorrow night's tonight and facts as we will be hearing a lot more from the president on economic matters and so on. But really nothing moves the needle. Until we get some more idea of what happens with stimulus and Ardley Nancy Pelosi doesn't look like. She's about to give in to to to president trump's requests or whatever republicans are requesting not that that's now well, even here's the thing we have to remember that even if the speaker of the House and the Secretary of the Treasury agree on some kind of deal, it would have to pass the Senate as well as the house. A number of house members have already suggested Dowse House Democrats have suggested they would vote against it because. They don't think it's big enough and. The question then becomes how many Republicans would vote for it if it's not considered big enough then in the Senate, you don't have fifty senators who approve of it. The Democrats are pretty united against it and half of the Republican senators say they don't want to spend anything. So at this point, there's a lot of focus on wall, street about the talks talks. In quotation marks between Nancy Pelosi and Steven Mnuchin. But the odds of something actually happening particularly before election day very, very small. Yes and for some reason and she wasn't quite care about yesterday when she was speaking with Wolf Blitzer Nancy Pelosi is not willing to even consider this one point eight, trillion dollar stimulus. What is it in their Michael? Can you decipher? that. She's so against she was actually quite angry with the to Democrats that said that they should be accepting this. The part of the play. A part of it is the way the money is distributed. Part of it is the amount of money for states and localities is not enough they believe and part of it obviously is politics. They don't WanNa give, Donald Trump. He kind of victory before the election you remember the last time when the cares act was passed in the twelve hundred dollars was going out for those who got it in check form trump held up distribution of the checks until he could have his name printed on it and last thing Nancy Pelosi wants is for voters to be opening their mail the day before the election and seeing Donald Trump giving them twelve hundred dollars. Yes that is to I'm sure and also presumably that machine is up and running now. So there may not be so much of a delay this time around but there is an argument to suggest that people need cash. Now, no matter how it comes in a matter who gets the credit right Michael Danny lower on earlier saying this country is in trouble there is particularly because more people are losing their jobs. Now, as we're finding more companies go out of business and. The airlines are a perfect example not going out of business, but laying off tens of thousands of people because they don't have any business to do at this point, and that was one of the hopes of the stimulus bills that they could get aid to the airlines in the short-term But nother interesting statistic came out from the New York Fed yesterday of the people who got the stimulus checks the first time around average of about twenty four, hundred dollars each seventy one percent either save the money or paid down debt. They have money in the bank and so if this. Rebound continued to go faster than expected. We might have a tailwind and we might need less of the stimulus checks I think the biggest difference now is that there are going to be people who. Didn't save. Don't have the money who are losing jobs permanently who may need something yeah. I found that phenomenal as well when you consider just how many people are at food banks in food lines as well who were once you know happily employed or all of the people around Orlando that are living motels because they'll also job at. Disney. For example. have to move every two weeks. Otherwise they risk you know Being, a problem for the Ho- The motel owner because after two weeks you can't you know get victim normally you have to go through the court process i. mean there are an array of stories out there about people suffering, Michael. What should we be concentrating on over the next couple of days? It's feels like Joe Biden needs to get more of an economic message out there. Actually, Biden probably needs to publicize it Joe Biden. If you look on their website has a very extensive economic plan that. Involves taxes infrastructure Various Pandemic Recovery ideas and Donald Trump and I'm not saying this to be part of Donald Trump has nothing. If you go to his website, there are literally no proposals for a second term and so it's kind of hard to know. what he would do and Biden perhaps wants to make that case a little bit more Donald Trump talked today about. Biden plans but if you notice it in his speech, he didn't say what he would do. He talked a lot about how bad the Biden and the Democrat tar and that's one of the problems people have suggested that we're seeing with trump's poll numbers is that at this point he is. Talking, about the previous four years and a lot of people didn't like what happened in the previous four years outside of the tax cut. and. He's not talking about what happens in the next four years or even in the next year and that makes it hard to make a case for your election. Yeah, it's a it's a phenomenal time and a lot of people pointing out now that if we don't get something before the election, it's going to be January. Before we're able to do more stimulus Michael thank you really appreciate your input and listening to that for us with Michael McKee. International airports, and policy. Correspondent.

"Daniel good to see you today. How are you this morning Dr Paul doing fine and we have a very, very special program. Today we're going to talk about what we've been talking about for six months, but it's always something new and different, and we have to keep up with it, but there's some things to do that. I think are very important but I, think you know. Aside. A little bit from the corona virus. Something very interesting crop up yesterday, and that has to do with this little battle between Pelosi and Wolf Blitzer. That pretty interesting. It was insane. We watched the clip several times and it was it was the most combative thing. It was also the most unusual thing that I've seen. With Speaker Pelosi going at Wolf Blitzer like we've never seen uneven accusing him of being a longtime apologised for the Republicans in the trump administration which anyone who saw that would wonder what was going on with her. I've. been interviewed by with Blitzer over the years and he never he never was a big new annoyance to me to be a little bit more gentle and refine then a Pelosi. So I was more or less leaning toward a wolf blitzer that Nancy Pelosi. But to me, this is a big deal because this, this is a split that I just haven't seen because you can turn on all the major stations, and if there's something to be said, they use the same words and get their marching orders every day and blizzard does it too but all of a sudden maybe it was. Maybe Pelosi didn't get the marching orders maybe she didn't know what or they were sent out in her name and she didn't realize it but but anyway, very interesting and I don't know what they'll talk about next time they meet but she was pretty strong putting him down. She was actually I think we even have a clip we can watch us a little bit of it. This is just a sample because it's it's really something I. Don't know if we. Watch a little bit of this. But see what happens because every day is critically critically important. Thanks so much joining us. To our constituents need I, am sensitive to them because I see them on the street begging for food begging for money speaker fact. We think them we feed them. We'll continue this conversation down the road. I. Sure. We'll take a quick break. We'll be right back. On the whole issue of the thing was blitzer was asking you're okay.

Los Angeles Deputy Saved Partner's Life After Ambush Shooting While Injured

"Tonight. We're learning new details about the shooting ambush that left to Los Angeles County Sheriff's deputies severely wounded. Let's bring. Sarah, she's on the scene for a Sarah one of the deputies actually saved your partners life while she was bleeding from face wound. Tell us what happened. It was absolutely incredible. Both of the deputies are still alive partly because of the reaction by thirty one year old mother of a six-year-old, both deputies still here in critical but stable condition. And incredible show of bravery, a thirty, one year old La, a sheriff's deputy profusely bleeding from a bullet to the face is seen helping save her twenty four year old partner. She applies a tourniquet to his bloodied arm and helps him move behind a pillar to avoid taking on more fire. Both have already been shot multiple times. Surveillance video shows the ambush a shooter fires into. Their car while they sit in their vehicle outside a stop and calm ten female deputy after getting shot both of them four five times her with a broken jaw in the face stepped out gave a tourniquet to her fellow deputy who had been shot in the head is well, probably saved his life while calling for help she and her partner had just become deputies fourteen months ago. I'll pointer the mother of a six-year-old is seen here. She proudly graduated from the Police Academy and Twenty One thousand nine hundred as they are recovering from their injuries at the hospital a callous call for their death by a gathering of about I people outside the hospital. The leader of the group that calls itself L. as Africa town coalition says he hopes the shooting is in retaliation for the shooting of black and Brown people by the. The most recent shooting sparked protests in Compton when deputies shot Dijon, Kizzie for an alleged bicycle. The family says Kizzie was shot in the back and investigation is still underway visit star of retribution. Very. Good start. The Ell ast has faced serious controversy over the years. It's sheriff convicted of lying in twenty sixteen was fired and jailed. There has also been a lawsuit brought accusing deputies of forming a gang inside the department. The most recent accusation and a complaint by a deputy whistle blower said in a deposition deputies formed a gang called the executioners incompetent. He says, they supported the same tattoos and used excessive force on suspects me being a field training officer. Supervisor and I have to. report this this behavior, this sheriff Deputies Union responded to those claims, the accusations of there being criminal gangs within the sheriff's department. That's ridiculous. But Union Representative Hernandez and some longtime content residents say the idea of retaliation like this is sickening to the to the people the group that came out here and and screamed we hope you die that in itself is also pathetic maybe not. As bad as the guy that actually pulled the trigger, but it's just as bad. We don't want those police officers to die. You know we don't want that. That's a tragedy and our prayers go out for those officers and their families. Yes. As the issue you know we, we believe that there should be some kind of reform police department. You know what to make it better for everybody.

Climate science denier appointed to top position at NOAA

"We're also following the controversy over a client climate science denier who's reportedly appointed to a top climate position in the US. Government C. N. N.'s Brian Todd is joining us right now Brian critics say this is a rather dangerous pick for such a key position right? Wolf critics including scientific watchdog groups are pouncing on this appointment tonight of David Lee Gates. Those critics say this appointment is especially troubling now in the middle of the wildfires, the hurricane season and the coronavirus pandemic. As record-setting wildfires. States as America's southern coast continued to get pounded by more frequent hurricanes. President trump continues his assault on climate science it'll start getting cooler. You just watch and the president's time is facing blistering criticism tonight for reportedly appointing a climate science denier to a top position at America's preeminent weather and climate agency David Lee. Gates has been tapped to be a top deputy at the National Oceanic atmospheric administration known as Noah that's according to NPR and the Washington Post. This is a dangerous pick for Noah because it threatens the thousands of Noah scientists who conduct and communicate climate science. Every day La- Gates has a long record of accepting fossil fuel industry funds and spreading disinformation about climate science according to the Post League Gates was once forced out of job as the state of Delaware's. climatologist because of his research paid for in part by the fossil fuel industry, which cast doubt on the science showing that the burning of coal and other fuels were main factors in climate change at a House hearing last year Lee Gates openly disputed the belief of many climate scientists that carbon dioxide is mainly responsible for heating up the planet that has little to do with carbon dioxide as the demise of the little ice age and warring conditions we've had due to increasing son according to NPR in two thousand, seven league gates helped author a paper funded partially by the oil industry that question scientific findings about the role, of climate change. In destroying polar bears habitats, he now heads to an agency Noah which watchdog groups say has a long history of nonpartisan, very credible work in providing the country with weather and climate information. What kind of effect could lead gates have it? Noah. One watchdog group sites the trump administration's appointments a former fossil fuel industry lobbyists to head the EPA and the Department of the Interior and they have retired there we've seen a altered of reunifications on climate change. We've seen climate websites removed. We've seen climate scientists gagged from communicating with the media and the public critics say this is only the latest move in trump's pattern of denying or trying. To suppress science, he announced that the US would withdraw from the Paris climate agreement. He's dismantled regulations on greenhouse gas and auto emissions Noah itself has at least once shown it couldn't withstand trump's pressure when a branch of the National Weather Service corrected trump's erroneous predictions for hurricane Doreen last year, which he later displayed with a sharpie threatening Alabama Noah disavowed that correction we have data wars going on data is being politicized, but one side of the other being weaponized and when you get into that point were the public can't tell who's telling the truth. It undermines democracy undermines a kind of trust that you need to make a democracy work. CNN reached out multiple times to David Lee Gates to know to the Commerce Department which oversees no and to the White House for response to the criticisms of La-. Gates's appointment. We didn't hear back from any of them but one board member of the conservative think tank the heartland institute which downplays the Climate Change Threat which David Gates is a member of told us that La- Gates will provide much-needed science sanity at Noah which this board member claims. has been taken over by quote climate

Mayor Garcetti on reports that COVID-19 may have been in Los Angeles as early as December

"As you know, mayor researchers at Ucla in Los Angeles say they actually saw significant increase in patients with respiratory failure in their hospitals beginning in late December that suggest that the virus may have been spreading much earlier than previously thought based on all the briefings you're getting all the expertise you're learning about the outbreak in La does that seem possible? It's possible. We had no big outbreaks. So we might have had some limited cases and we don't believe that most of our spread came from people that were here community spread we're such an international city. This is the. Fourth Busiest airport in the world the busiest container port in all of the Western. Hemisphere. So we have a lot of people who come through this very important crossroads and it's more likely that most infections came from there but absolutely, it probably was in the United States certainly northern California and possibly down here a little bit earlier to one of the reasons I'm proud that we were the first big city to start shutting things down first. Big City to say widespread Maske's had to be mandated Those things are important in those save lives if we'd had that at the national level and what we saw was devastating this week in Bob Woodward's book about not only knowing the threat but China downplay it, and now everybody's trying to say, oh, he was trying to keep people calm keep people calm by telling them the truth and arming them with the ways to protect themselves and their families not by saying this will go away without a vaccine or you Don't need to wear a mask and those decisions unfortunately cost lives. But at the local level I'm proud that you know mayors throughout this country and many governors Republican and Democratic took those right steps because now the evidence is showing, it was probably here earlier than we imagined

Trump insists he did "The best job" on Pandemic, despite death rate figures

"Get some analysis right now from the former CDC director Dr Tom Friedman a doctor Freidan. Thank you so much for joining us and as you heard, the president is insisting he has done what he calls the best job responding to this pandemic. You say the US is a global laggard on this front. So what led you to reach a very different conclusion than the president. The US has a history of very effective health and public health action in this country and around the world, and yet our death rate is five times the death rate of Germany and even a greater proportion higher to south. Korea or other countries that have really crushed the curve Singapore new, Zealand Iceland but comparison with Germany. Another developed country with a decentralized government that faced the virus coming. In. That's really what we could have done. We could have had one fifth the deaths we have had and part of this is a failure to communicate wolf. It's interesting to hear the discussion of panic because this has been studied, we know how to prevent panic when it comes to health emergencies. These are the principles of public health risk communication there five of them be I be right. Be Credible be empathetic and give people concrete practical things to do to protect themselves their families and their communities. These are five essential things. If you don't give people concrete practical useful things do they will do other things that aren't useful and constructive but underlying all of this I think is the failure to recognize that we are all in this together, we can still do better we can control the virus, we can save lives, we can get jobs back, but that means having an organized response that means leveling with the American people telling people what we know when we know it

Trump pledges coronavirus vaccine will be developed by election day

"More now on president trump's controversial timeline for Corona Virus Vaccine Dr Vivek Murthy is joining us right now he's the former surgeon general of the United States. He's also an advisor to the Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden Dr Murthy fact so much for joining us and as you heard the president is teasing a vaccine. He says before a special date by that he means Election Day November third as the former surgeon general does that raise red flags to you? It's good to be with you today and I like so many people in the medical community really hopeful that we will have a vaccine by EIB your year end or by early next year and we need one. Because so many people have. been affected by Kobe lost their lives cove, and if we had an effective vaccine, we may have been able to avoid many of these debts. But the key thing about the process for getting vaccine is that it has to be driven by science and scientists not by political or you know figgers by political timelines and that's really important because right now we have about a third of people on surveys who are saying that if a vaccine was available today, they either would not take it or unsure if they would ticket despite how bad everything has been with Kobe that means that we've we've got to hold ourselves to A. High Standard of accountability in issuing approval or an emergency authorization and their three key requirements to keep in mind. The first is that we've got to have sufficient high quality data that tells us that a vaccine meets the standards for safety and efficacy second, we have to have transparency in the data itself so that scientific authorities can actually look at the state of themselves outside of government and evaluated the third we've got also have a clear plan for distributing vaccine quickly and fairly and this is not easy to do. It requires having robust data systems for example, to track WHO's gotten the vaccine to make sure it's not inequitably. Distributed, but we cannot do in this process is Russian authorization without hearing directly from scientists or advisory groups that would really set us back in terms of public faith in vaccines. Public has to be confident in the safety. To be sure our Elizabeth Cohen spoke to a federal official Dr Murphy who said and I'm quoting I don't know any scientists involved in this effort who thinks we will be getting shots into arms any. Before Election Day. What do you think is a more realistic timeline. More realistic expected we will start to see You know good news about a vaccine being approved at the end of the calendar year or beginning of next year, and that would be an optimistic scenario, and then it takes some time after that to actually deliver the vaccine and get the shot in the arm. So to speak because a shot in the arm is what matters at the end of the day that's how we actually. Protect people and stop discredit covid nineteen.

Children. So far, eight children in Florida have died from coronavirus pandemic began according to the Tampa Tampa Bay Times. Clearly, kids aren't virtually immune from corona. As the president has said. That's right. We know that children tend to get less ill than adults do but children do get sick they do become hospitalized, and unfortunately some do die and we actually know based on the statistics so far that the disparities that we're seeing in adults with corona virus are also mirrored in children as well. A city study found that African American children are five times more likely to be hospitalized Latino kids eight times more likely to be hospitalized, and we have to take this disease very seriously. Also recognizing that children may even be silent spreaders of covid nineteen.

High schools and colleges work to contain coronavirus outbreaks

"New more detailed guidelines from the CDC among other things they address what schools should do if there is a case of covert among students or staff, they suggest rather than shutting everything down immediately for a long period of time. One option is short term class suspension cancellation of events in after school activities to give public health leaders time to determine how widespread the infections are. As college students head back to campus corona virus outbreaks at universities in at least nineteen states representing nearly fourteen hundred cases among students and staff leading to concerns about scenes like this, a large gathering of students at Penn State that prompted the school's president ask those flouting the rules. Do you want to be the person responsible for sending everyone home Mississippi's governor urging college students to be careful since eighteen to twenty nine year olds make up the highest proportion of cases there. We know that we've got a lot of work to do there. It's something that we will have to be constantly working on over the course of the next few months and while K. through twelve schools face challenges reopening in. States like Mississippi and Georgia new. York with its rock bottom covert task positivity rate is in a good position to reopen schools even. So parents have questions, governor Andrew Cuomo saying he'd had questions to the still working out with the plan would be I would have a lot of questions parents a lot of questions. This is a risky proposition no matter how you do it, and with US deaths from covid nineteen averaging more than a thousand a day for twenty five consecutive days. The CDC is now projecting nearly one hundred, ninety, five, thousand Cova deaths by September twelfth about three weeks away suggesting that staggering death rate will continue at least in the short term we are beginning I think to. Turn the tide still CDC Director Dr Robert. Redfield who estimates as many as sixty million people nationwide may have already contracted the virus based on an infection rate of ten to twenty percent says, we could soon see the number of new daily deaths begin to decline as more people follow public health guidelines like mask wearing hand, washing, and social distancing. This week. Next week you're going to start seeing. The death rate really start to drop. New cases are steady or falling in forty states but redfield warned that positive trend isn't taking hold everywhere little the mirror right now. Is Getting stuck. We don't need to have a third wave. In the heartland coronavirus cases are on the rise in states like Wyoming Iowa and Illinois with a new emory university study suggesting so-called Super Spreader events are driving transmission in rural areas. Meanwhile on the vaccine front nor country can just ride this out until we have a bucks in a new sobering reminder from the head of the World Health Organization the nineteen eighteen pandemic lasted two years. He hopes this one won't, and even if we do have the Buxin. It wouldn't end the pandemic on its own progress does not mean victory. And there is another sad sign that victory over this virus has not yet at hand. We just learned today that a six year old girl.

Trump pushes forward with executive action on economy despite legal questions

"CNN White House correspondent Boris Sanchez Boris President Trump is defending the executive orders issued on pandemic relief even as the White House is struggling to explain them they're having trouble landing out for the American people. Yeah that's right. Jim The president also spinning these executive actions claiming that they do more to help struggling Americans than they actually do the president dodging criticism even from within his own party that these actions are unconstitutional and also ignoring previous statements that he's made about executive actions. Tonight president trump sparring with his own party taking aim at critics of his new executive actions tweeting that Nebraska Senator Ben Sasse is a Republican in name only saying he has quote gone rogue. Again, this foolishness plays right into the hands of the radical left Dem's SAS tearing into trump's decision to circumvent stimulus negotiations in Congress calling the move unconstitutional slap comparing the actions to President Obama's signing of executive orders after lawmakers could not reach consensus orders that trump himself frequently criticized. The country was in based on executive orders right now Obama goes around signing executive orders. It's a basic disaster you can't do it in theory is opposed to you know the old fashioned way get everybody into a room and get something that people agree on trump was not in the room getting lawmakers together instead spending the weekend at his Golf Club in New Jersey as questions linger over whether the actions will survive legal challenges, members of the administration struggled to even explain them. Twelve, hundred dollars. Are you talking about in addition to unemployment that they're already getting nervous having. that. I. Beg. Your pardon the twelve hundred dollars will come from the payroll tax. It should be eight, Hundred Bucks I beg your pardon it should be eight hundred bucks for the unemployment eight, hundred or four hundred. No should before it should be eight hundred dollars. But White House Chief of Staff Morton Meadows appears more concerned with public comments from the administration's health experts. The Washington Post.

Meadows has also excluded health experts for morning meetings with staff privately sharing skepticism about Dr and Dr Deborah burks questioning their expertise and regularly raising issues on which she thinks they've been

"About the death of the youngest the youngest corona virus victim in Georgia only seven years old, and we'll also go to the scene of a huge motorcycle rally this weekend it's now getting underway without any rules for wearing masks or social distancing. Tonight new details on Georgia's youngest corona virus victim a seven year old boy without any underlying health conditions authorities say he died after attending a church where two elderly members tested positive died as well. Our National Correspondent Diane Gallagher of Atlanta for us this is certainly driving home concerns about the reopening schools where you are in Georgia? What's the latest on the? That's right wolf, and again, this is the youngest death unknown at this time for Cope, nineteen in the state of Georgia that seven year old boy according to the coroner was in the shower and he had a seizure they took him to the hospital where he later died. Now, the corner points out that seizures are not uncommon in children when they have very high fevers, his cause of death is listed as Covid nineteen. Again, we know that children can get covid and we see that children can die from covert, and that is a concern among parents and teachers and kids themselves here in Georgia because they. Did go back to class and for some of them, it was in person instruction this week several school districts across the state have already reported positive cases and had to send home dozens of children to quarantine because they came in close contact, and then there was this photo that went viral from North Holding. High School of a clash change a hallway with kids shoulder to shoulder many of them not wearing masks the young girl who took that photo Hannah waters was originally suspended for posting it. The school today were Sunday that suspension saying it wouldn't be on her disciplinary record but Hannah says, she doesn't regret it. I was concerned for the safety of everyone in that building and everyone in the county because. Precautions that the CDC incite guidelines at the CDC has been telling us for months now weren't being followed. And of course, the superintendent of that school district has said that while the photo looks bad, there is additional context wolf he says that look the kids aren't next to each other too long when they're in the hallway and that they are going to continue to take what they've learned from this week and try to implement it with additional standards and try and change things. One thing they're not going to be doing that school is issuing a mask mandate would the superintendent says, it's just too hard to enforce but again. that. They were trying to enforce a cell phone policy on the girl who posted on social media that picture earlier, but they say just not possible to do with masks in high school.

Trump Vows to Issue Executive Orders if Coronavirus Relief Talks Collapse

"Breaking news on the economic front the White House and Democrats say talks of the economic stimulus package they have hit a wall president trump is threatening to take executive action on his own. Let's get details on that from our chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta. Americans they are in desperate economic pain right now but stimulus talks seem to be going nowhere right now what's the latest? Well, that's right. Wolf with negotiations falling apart over Corona Virus Relief Bill White House officials say president trump is now expected to take some kind of executive action to provide financial support to Americans who are struggling to find work during this pandemic the executive orders are likely to include some kind of effort to provide enhanced unemployment benefits as well as some kind of. Action on suspending evictions from rental homes. There may be some other proposals in the mix, and in the meantime, we should point out the president just hinted at the path ahead in the last hour tweeting, we're going a different way that tweet coming from the president in just the last hour, and in the meantime administration officials are throwing cold water on the president's gold having corona virus vaccine ready by election day one senior administration official told me earlier today that timeline is highly unlikely. President trump's claim that a corona virus vaccine could be ready by election day is receiving an injection of reality as top administration health officials are saying, don't bet on it. Then November third. Oh I. Think I think in some cases. Yes. Possible before. But right around that time, a senior administration official told CNN that timeline is just not realistic saying it's quote metaphysically possible but highly unlikely and Corona Virus Taskforce Dr Anthony Fauci said. May Have to wait until November or December just to find out of a vaccine really works adding maybe we'll get an answer as early as October but I doubt it trying to put a finer prediction on the timetable right now I don't think any of us have enough information yet to know how that's going to shake out. The pandemic Bennett economy recovered somewhat in July with the unemployment rate falling to just above ten percent with one point eight million jobs added even with so many Americans still out of work congressional Democrats and White House officials have been at odds all week over Corona Virus Relief Bill with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, pointing the finger at top aides to the president. Now, that's been in the White House when the president's land that table and walked out that's really what Mr. Meadows. Did I on the table can't shoot staff Mark Meadows Jabbing right back I think for those that are suffering they. They should be asking the Democrats in the House and the Senate why why have you failed to meet the needs that we have so rightly expressed without a deal the White House is signaling Mr Trump will take executive action that legal drafting is complete. We've had this intense discussions about this. In the last several days, I don't WanNa make predictions. Democrats are also keeping an eye on election day accusing the administration of making changes to the nation's postal system that could slow down mayland balloting in a letter, the Postal Service Inspector General, a group of Democratic senators wrote the changes appear to pose a potential threat to mail in ballots and the twenty twenty general election President Likes Mail in voting in Florida but not another states like Nevada Florida's got a great Republican governor and it had a great Republican. Got Run to scientists Rick Scott, the president is seizing on comments made by Joe Biden, you seem to say African Americans are less diverse and their political views Latino voters unlike the African American community notable exceptions. The Latino community is incredibly diverse community. With, incredibly different attitudes about different things Biden try to clean that up tweeting in no way. Did I mean to suggest the African American community is a monolith not by identity not on issues not at all Mr Trump, tweeted biden is no longer worthy of the black vote I don't know what's going on with them, but it was very insulting. The president's attack on Biden are tricky for Mr Trump, who has a long track record of racially offensive behavior including sharing this video, featuring a supporter shouting white power. Now the US intelligence community issued a startling statement on election security today as the US closing in on the fall campaign. In that statement intelligence officials warn Russia is trying to damage from where Vice President Joe Biden. His chances to win the white. House the statement also from the intelligence community says, she prefers that president trump fail in his bid for a second term. These warnings from intelligence officials come at a critical time for American voters who were largely unaware that.

David Archer previews the Atlanta Falcons

"The Atlanta Falcons will do so with a former Falcons quarterback. Now he is their longtime color analysts on the radio network for Atlanta. And that is David Archer. David Hope all is. Well. Thanks for doing this. When we look at the Falcons, they made a big offseason acquisition getting Todd Gurley We don't know where the health is of Todd Gurley. What do you expect at a Todd Gurley coming over from l. A to Atlanta for this upcoming season? Well, be honest with you. I think we're expecting a lot of early and mainly in the Red zone. If you look at Todd Gurley's numbers, even with with so called quote unquote down near Around 900 yards rushing, still had 12 touchdowns. All 12 of those touchdowns came in the red Zone, and I think that Atlanta if they could find a way to run the football down close Help three up the talented weapons that Ryan has on the perimeter. Now, listen, you have a little bit more of a potent attack a little bit more looking a little bit more like what? You looked like a 16 when Avante Freeman and Tevin Coleman. We're carrying the ball down there close and created that problem in the run game. Atlanta has not had that over the last couple of seasons. I think that's where they expect Todd Gurley to make his main hey is down there in the red Zone. With the way that you probably have to manage his reps as a running back the rest of the running back room. Is there something that jumps out to you? Yeah, I think it's a good group. Really Do I think that when you look at Brian, Ill in the way, Brian Gillis Kamani together that Hawkins drafted a couple of years ago, Brian Handsome solid moments a year ago. Quadri Allyson. Kid at Pittsburgh rookie from a year ago. Uh, kind of woke himself. A little bit of a roll is a short yardage guy. £225 Goal line Guy, four touchdowns. Hopefully, you know, Smith can come back. He was injured in the game a year ago. I believe against the Rams in which he was trying to pick up a Blitzer, which he shouldn't be here should be doing, but he is an outstanding receiver out of the backfield. And a good change of pace back at the back, So they get to three young guys that I think you could lean on. And like you said, Take some of that. Load off. Assad, Girl. Let's get to the next down. And when we do so, we take a look at Matt Ryan and Julio Jones. The two big names in that organization. Do you still believe that this team could be a play off team once again with Matt Ryan and Julio Jones? I do, but it's you know, obviously, it's about you know your supporting cast and you do some things on the other side of the ball, and I'm sure there's a question you've got to worry about the defense's side the football, But there there's a little area in the offensive line. The left guard has been a little bit leaky, right guard's been a little bit leaky because of some injuries and things that they could shore up that into your part of the offensive line. Ryan's Like most classic quarterbacks climb in the pocket. They got to be able to give him that opportunity. Do so if you get into your pressure and accurate from problems, one game will help in that regard, but Yeah. Julio Jones, 16 seconds, 1300 yard seasons. Matt Ryan, nine consecutive 4000 yard seasons. I don't see the one those guys backing off. When you talk about that offensive line to follow up on that I'm a big fan of Matt Hennessy. Being a temple grad, really smart football player puts in a lot of work. Is he going to make an immediate impact in your number one? Yeah, There's always a question that he's certainly in the mix to be the starting guard. There's no question about that. I think that there's ah lot excitement around when he brings the table and and obviously the heir apparent, Alex Mack, probably its center. So Alex back in a little bit longer to still have a good football any But I need to put some guys around him that Khun taken, it could be in there and we had German Brown and James Carpenter guys that could not stay on the field. There was some solid moments from those two big veteran players, but they did not stay on the field and consistency. In the interior specialist that left guard spotted Kennedy ultimately will probably win that job and be the starter that guard let's get to the next down. All right, David Archer. When they flip the switch here and go to the other side of the ball defensively, it was an up and down year for the defense, but it seemed like they did finish in a better spot than what they did earlier on in the season. You could probably say that for the entire team with the Atlanta Falcons this division. Is loaded with offensive talent. You know what the Saints are. Now you have Tom Brady and the division with Tampa Bay, and I'll be curious to see what Teddy Bridgewater does with the Panthers. What's your read on the Falcons defense entering 2020 Well, it's an uncertain situation obviously went on God. Dante Fowler, Dad's pressure off the edge contact. McKinley realized what they thought they had when they drafted him a couple of years and the number one spot picked up Charles Haley, who, ironically, was in the same draft. And raided a route the same attack McKinley are Charles Harris. I'm sorry. Charles. Charles Charles Haley. Right way. I'd like to have the guy that was rushing the pastor there for both the Cowboys in the 40 Niners. That would be great, but Harris. He does have some raw talent there. Can't he realize that I'm the Falcon Tutelage will have to wait and see Grady dear. It's an emerging star in the tackle position and Marlon Davidson, Vienna and an interesting ad, a guy that has the versatility to play inside. Maybe in past situations and also play the perimeter as a 34 defensive didn't run down situations. The answer at all Burn second round draft pick of the fact that they think they've upgraded their defensive line. It'll have to be upgraded because you get extremely young secondary. Probably gonna have a rookie a corner starting your nickels, a second year guy in your other corners of third year, guys, So there's a lot of young players on the perimeter need to get some pass rush speed up the thought process for the quarterback. Let's get to the final down. Alright. I'm surprised that Dan Quinn is Bacca's the head football coach for the Lancer Falcons. What does he have to do this year to keep his job and Is that seats the warm because, like I said, I was surprised that they brought him back for this year. It is warm. I think that it's fortunate they brought him back because of the current situation with the pandemic and the uncertainties, so some continuity certainly has played into Atlanta Falcons off season. I think they've had a solid offseason, much as you can, with the limitations. They're attached to this year, So I think that it was good in retrospect that, uh, Mr Black decided to keep Dan Quint on, but I think he's got there. They've got a bit pushed for a playoff spot. I think they've got to be. They can't come out of the box one in seven. It's got to be a team. It's in the hunt of the entire way. As you said, it's going to be outstanding division with outstanding quarterback play, but they have to be in the hunt to be a part of the postseason play. If they do that. And I think the fans will be a little bit of stab on the wound for the fans. But if you get out to a slow start, it would not surprise me. If if Mr Blank made some kind of decision mid season on coach Boy and I think, coach when is the right guy for the job Now it's put up or shut up. He scored a touchdown will go for two here Oscar. One more question This team was 11 5 We all know the deal they were in the Super Bowl blew the 28 23 lead. The next year, they did go 10 and six, the last two years. It's seven and nine. If you had to identify the biggest reason why this team has regressed, and I know they've had some injuries to but overall if it's not the health of the team, what's the biggest thing that you look at? Why this team wasn't able to recreate that magic from 2016 and 2017? I think their inconsistency ball on both sides of the football in conversion, down situations and in the red zone. I think Atlanta's done a great job of moving the ball from 20 to 20 But when they get in the red zone, they bogged down and settle for too many threes. And I think in turn the defense's side of the football. What about 22 23 scoring defense coming up 25 points a game. They've got to find a way to get more stops in the red zone. That's probably the answer that you could probably get from all teams struggled and not made the playoff teams, but I certainly think That that's identifiable with the Falcons over the last couple years, the inability down deep in the red Zone both on offensive defense, Julio Jones, he's Ah Hall of Fame player. We all know that one of the better wide receivers in the league He's only had one year of double digit touchdowns, going back to 2012 when he had 10 TUC maybe 10 touchdowns in his fortunes this year. Well, I think he's certainly capable of it. But you got an outstanding receiver on the other side of Calvin Ridley, who's realized his abilities down in the red Zone Pretty close. I think Aidan hearse is going to be a seamless transition from Austin Hooper tight end spot So there are a lot of weapons from that Ryan to get the football too. Don't forget Todd Gurley and how good he is at the back catching the football as well. So I I would say no, I think he's going to be 89 touchdowns. I don't think he goes double digits, but I think there's a lot of guys around him. They're going to score touchdowns. Look for guys somewhere between 13 14 guys catch touchdown passes issue. Say that we appreciate it. Thanks so much. You be well, my

Miami-Dade County among Florida locations closing COVID-19 test sites because of tropical weather

"Bad news out of Florida for a third straight day. Florida has broken its own record for the number of corona virus deaths in a single day. Let's go to CNN's randy case joining us from West Palm Beach Randy. You're one of the testing sites that are not actually being closed down due due to an incoming storm that may hit Florida right now and the next day or so what's the latest? Right there watching this tropical storm Wolf that is brewing out there. So Florida has decided to close all state run testing sites throughout the state. I'm at one of them here in Palm Beach County in the county they are actually closing all eight state run testing sites. The one where we are at has served about thirty thousand people It's open five days a week they also do antibodies testing here, but earlier in the day. We were here and they were dismantling it. They were taking apart the tents and the polls and some of the cones that's because those would not be able to withstand those tropical storm force winds. But this is one of the hardest hit counties in the state. So certainly, some concern about closing these sites even further south of here in Miami Dade, they're closing thirteen sites in Miami Dade. County, that's the hardest county they still. Have A positivity rate there of about eighteen percent. So some concern still there and in Broward county another hard hit county here they are closing twelve site. So in all in these three hardest hit southern counties in southern Florida, they are closing thirty three state run testing

"I said really. They're shutting down schools And they took a lot of action and as we now know there were no treatments. There are no cures there. Were no vaccines but we now know that. All that mitigation that physical mitigation and all the testing and everything else had an enormous impact and as a result South Korea. It hasn't suffered in terms of deaths The way the United States as an. It's just something that I hope. All of our leaders will learn from And because this crisis is not going to go away and there could be other viruses down the road. I hope we learn from this so that we don't fall into this disaster type situation again. Yeah well speaking of learning from this and reflecting I want you to take a listen to one of the things that really stuck out to me. Most that president trump said during this pandemic when he was asked by reporter if he takes responsibility for those early failures. No I don't take responsibility at all because we were given a set of circumstances and we were given rules regulations and specifications from a different time. And we're now in very strong shape. Which of course we know. We are not in very very strong shape as we are talking about. We've reached that hundred thousand death mark. But how will history remember the president's response? I mean does the buck. Stop with him. Of course is the president of the United States so the buck stops with him look. He did several things that were smart. He put together a White House Corona Virus Task Force that brought in some really excellent people. Dr Pfau chief for example the leading expert on infectious diseases in the United States. He's the director of the National Institute of Allergy Infectious Diseases and I h at the National Institutes of health. He knows a lot about this. He was brought in right away ambassador. Deborah burks who became the White House coronavirus response coordinator enormous amount experience in these issues. Stephen Hough the commissioner of the FDA the Food and Drug Administration. Dr Robert Redfield is director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention These are people that know a lot and he brought in and they started working right away Could they have done more with hindsight? Of course should they have done more with hindsight? Of course could lives have been saved. You know with hindsight obviously lives could have been saved but You know what you gotta learn from those mistakes to make sure they don't happen again. I give the president credit for putting together an excellent Corona virus task force. But he you know he was very very overly an totally unrealistically optimistic other statements. And we've all heard them so many times that is going to go from fifteen close to zero and all that kind of stuff you know he was way way to Upbeat on all of this. And what's also heartbreaking early January mid January end of January? There were briefings and they were told you know this could be a really serious issue. No he did the right thing and shutting down a lot of the travel out. All of the traveled a lot of travel from China to the United States Was He disappointed that he wasn't getting reliable information? From China yes. China did not show the transparency and inform the world of the enormous situation immediately as they should have did the. Who the World Health Organization makes a major blunders of in the early days? Yes they certainly did as well and so look..

"Our medical correspondent Dr Sanjay Gupta's at a hospital east of Baghdad. Sanjay tell us what's going on where you are. We're invite an operating room that's unusual in. That's from two thousand three when I was embedded with a group of medics during the Iraq war and still relatively new to CNN the anchor introducing me is probably a familiar voice. Many of my friend and colleague Wolf Blitzer. How are you holding up Sanjay? It's been difficult yet. These convoy rides will be you know much about Bacon. Be a very challenging bank wolf and I have both been at CNN for decades which is kind of surreal to say. We've been at the front lines of some of history's most life changing moments nine eleven. Hurricane Katrina the Bala crisis but this pandemic has had no precedent in our lifetime as host of CNN's. The Situation Room Wolf says this has been one of the most intense experiences of his career. He joins me today to talk about the challenges of covering tragedies the political is ation of facts and how he keeps going during this never ending new cycle. I'm Dr Sanjay Gupta. Cnn's chief medical correspondent and this is corona virus fact versus fiction. Doing Hi Sandra. My got my clorox disinfecting wipes cleaned off his microphone. This little table here. and you would be very proud wolf. Thank you I've really been looking forward to this. Let me start off by asking. How long have we have? We known each other well. I've been with CNN for thirty years. And and I think you've been with CNN West for about twenty years. Is that right? Such young two thousand and one I started so nineteen years coming up on twenty years. That's amazing I I remember. Of course the first major story you and I covered Was in February march of two thousand three just before the war with Iraq and we were both in Kuwait You and me we're recovering. Anchoring my show from Kuwait City from a hotel balcony and all of a sudden the war started and the first Scuds came in and a few of them landed about a mile or so behind where I was reporting from And we see this huge plume of smoke. Go Up And the wind was blowing towards us and I said well let. Let's wait and see where the smoke goes And the next thing I knew is Dr Sanjay Gupta our chief. Medical correspondent was in a vehicle. You were heading to that high end mall where the Scuds landed and you were wearing your gas mask and you were getting ready to report the news right. Yeah that's exactly right. I I wanted to go over there and And see at the time it made total sense. Yes I will go exactly where that big plume of. Smoke is where that missile landed in the middle of a war where there's concerns about bio weapons. It made perfect sense. In retrospect I was thinking what am I doing? Let let me let me ask you wolf about this this particular time now covering this pandemic You've covered so many stories again These wars Oklahoma City nine eleven hurricane Katrina other outbreaks. How how is this? Been different than those well. This has been At least from my personal perspective. The most deadly You know as we speak more than ninety thousand Americans have been have died and hundreds of thousands have been you know had to suffer through corona virus and and so many more around the world and these are people. These are wonderful people. These are mothers and fathers sons and daughters brothers and sisters They're younger. They're middle aged. They're older they're wonderful people. Many of them were looking For the prime of their lives spending time with their families enjoying life The economy was good and all of a sudden. It's a disaster. We've got millions and millions of people who are unemployed applying for unemployment benefits Many of them can't even apply. What's so heartbreaking to see these long food lines people waiting to just get food to put on the table to feed their kids And themselves and who would have thought this was going to happen and even something as simple as wearing a face mask you go out and you see all. These people wearing face bests You see people all over the place. Who would have thought that was going to be happening here. So this has been so so intense so riveting so scary so crazy in many respects. It's just an awful awful situation and I and I would say it's it's certainly you know the the most intense period two months that we've been doing this in all the years of my journalism that this is the most intense while. I mean that's saying something given your career and yet you do a story like this and it's it's difficult nowadays seemingly wolf to disentangle anything from from politics and the more subjective nature of the story. The opinion part of story people weighing in From a Political Lens. Do you sense that as well is is? Is it truly impossible to disentangle just about any new story from politics nowadays? Well look. There's the political story. There's a political angle to what's going on and the country is deeply divided as you know I I will say this. Sanjay the article you wrote for CNN DOT COM On Your personal thoughts and I have it right here in front of me You know that it for the for the for a moment. Think of the United States as a human body at that and people haven't read that article they should go back and look it up And the last words you wrote and I have it right here in front of me. It's they were so powerful because I truly agree and I truly believe what you said is true. You said the country and the world are facing a serious illness but it is treatable. It is fixable. Let's do this together. You're absolutely right. We're we're going through HAL right now. This is an awful awful situation and it's going to get worse as these numbers get worse and and hopefully there won't be a second wave that comes in the fall or anything like that but I totally agree it is treatable. It is fixable. Let's do this together when you think about your your your tone. I mean do you think about your your tone? When you're delivering news stories Wolf. A lot of it nowadays has been you know frightening news to give. How do you balance being hopeful for an audience and being honest I do think about my tone And I try to. You know to be as objective as I possibly can be but sometimes you know the the story is so painful you you're gonna see that you know on my face you'll hear it in my tone you'll hear my words And you know I've been trying over these days To end the situation room with some images and pictures of a real people who unfortunately passed away from the corona virus and we tell those stories who these people are because it's one thing to say ninety thousand people have died. It's another thing to say. Look at this individual. Look at this woman. Look at this man. Look at this teacher this nurse look at this This a first responder And you put the face on these people. And it's sad. It's it's heartbreaking because you think of their families and so often their families they can't even say goodbye in a hospital or they see they can't even sometimes go to a funeral To say goodbye to their father mother or whatever and You know you gotTa have some emotion when you just feel that it's it's so powerful so so awful Science reporting in some ways I feel wolf is a luxury in that we can always rely on data and science and evidence facts to bolster up our reporting There's not a lot of opinion science reporting although sometimes you do have to offer up some thoughts on things but for you. In an era where alternative facts have become a term that people become familiar with. How do you think that that is affected the reporting on this pandemic the idea that the truth and the science? That's just another avenue of information. Here's here's another avenue. You could pay attention to the most important thing we can do. And you're part of our fact checking team Sanjay's went when we hear government. People including the president makes statements do a news conference and say all sorts of things I want to come out and say well. Let's let's check what we just heard? And we'll have you We'll have John King have Daniel. Dale our chief fact. Checker will have Gloria Borger Dana Bash But we'll have doctors And in addition to you who come on and say well what he said just not true. What he said is true And I think that's a real service that CNN does provide that. We're not just listening and reporting but Ross fact checking and making sure that the viewers get an honest understanding of what's going on not just propaganda from time to time. I think it's so important. Everything gets sort of polarized and and sometimes it gets minimized inappropriately. So I really do appreciate the sort of work that you do wolf. How about you? I mean even your site in the pandemic Wolf. I think you are known to the iron man at At CNN and in the media business. In general I mean you work hard weekend. Shows Weekday shows What what was the work life balance like for you well right now. I I love working and I've been working during this during this current pandemic seven days a week. I woke up this morning. You know I got a little routine. I got on a treadmill for an hour and I watched the news on television as I'm getting a good little sweat Excited because I know that you know in the situation room gets on the air. Five o'clock I'm going to be ready to report the news as fairly and as responsibly as accurately I as I possibly can and the viewers will be grateful. And I'll be grateful that it's not as if if I took a day or offer You know or a weekend off. I could go to. A restaurant can't do that. It's not as if I could go watch my Washington nationals. Play baseball game. I can't do that. It's not as if I can you know. Go see my family down in Miami. 'cause I'm not going to get on a plane right now and I'm not going to be able to do that and whenever I used to complain to my dad about how hard I was working he would always say listens on. There are harder ways to make a living what you do so. Just go ahead and enjoy your job. That's my attitude you know. It's my attitude to despite the long days and frantic research. I've always tried to follow wolves lead. I WanNa think wolf again. Not only for his hard work but also for being a constant source of inspiration for me and everyone else at the network. If you have questions please record voice memo and email them to ask. Sanjay at CNN dot com might include them in our next podcast. We'll be back tomorrow. Thanks for listening..
