"From npr in wbz are tanya moseley. And i'm peter o'dowd this is here now. The final day of voting in georgia's high stakes senate runoffs is underway. Today's elections will determine which party controls the senate and that will ultimately determine how difficult or easy it will be for. President elect joe biden to get his agenda through congress. Let's check back in with emile moffett a reporter member station w. a. b. e. in atlanta a meal. Both senate seats are up for. Grabs in. Georgia polls have been open for several hours already now today. What are you seeing. How are things going. Mostly smooth No reports of really long lines or major technical snags so far this morning There have been a few smaller counties that have seen some problems with the voting machines and had to go to emergency paper ballots but nothing in the metro counties And that's been for good news for voters like susanna durant. Who works for a latino outreach. Group was first in line this morning as polls opened at pittman park recreational center in southwest atlanta. She says she just didn't have the time to vote early. As polling places adjusted two hours over the holidays. I should've learned earlier but it's just been so busy. I work in elections to so we've been organizing and like it's been so wild all these hours and it's interesting that the early voting period was around christmas and new years this year so people i did go out to vote. Even though it's been a very busy time of year to have a runoff election will in fact. It looks like three million. People went out and cast their ballots during that early voting period. So a and what. You're also seeing there at the polls today. How does this election compared to previous runoffs in terms of turnout. What does it say about the enthusiasm and this election. It says a lot. Normally you do see a big pretty big drop off from the general to the runoff election but a while turnout was down slightly from the general election in november. It's still really robust in this runoff elections in that i think speaks to the national implications of this race and of course voters on both sides of the aisle. Say it'll affect Not only the national landscape but also their everyday lives as well. You told us that things appear to be going smoothly so far today but at a press conference yesterday a top state election official gabriel sterling. Had this morning we anticipate there could be any number of potential threats out there that could be in attempting to encourage or discourage. Turn out we encourage everybody to please turn out to be safe. Be smart and don't let anybody get in the way of you casting your vote. So what do we know about those threats. And what kind of precautions are being taken. The threats have been described as vague but County officials have been preparing for weeks working with law enforcement's there in each county to make sure voters and election. Employees are safe but it should be noted that we have seen and continue to see threats made against county officials against state officials including a gabriel sterling. The official we just heard from as well as some lawmakers following the very contentious in november election in the aftermath will it has been contentious and look no further to the rally that president trump had in georgia. Yesterday he spent most of it repeating baseless claims of voter fraud and falsely said that he won the state in november. It was the same message we heard in that phone. Call with georgia's republican secretary of state over the weekend. Have you heard anything more in the past. Twenty four hours on yesterday to talk about this phone call but have you heard anything more. If trump's constant undermining of of voting system is impacting the race. Today or turn out today as i turned goes. We're seeing a similar numbers to what we saw on election. Day in november. Kind of steady flow of voters. But no major lines like we've seen in past election. I think it might actually be tonight when polls close when we're able to get Kind of a good gauge of the full effects of president. Trump's continued baseless claims of fraud but from some of the supporters of president trump. We've talked to seems like most are kind of holding their noses and going to the polls anyway but with the races so close You know every vote could is going to be important. And so if they're just a few holdouts that could That could affect the race. Polls close tonight at seven eastern. How long before we know the outcome of this election. Could it be really drawn out. Process like we saw in the general back november. There's a potential for it to be counties. That did have a jump. Start on processing the absentee ballots. They were able to start two weeks ago processing the ballots and they had to start a week ago. Getting through those. But there are a million absentee ballots to count in this runoff election. So it very likely could be a day or two especially depending on how close these races end up being all right. We'll be there to watch it. A meal moffit report member station w. a. b. e. in atlanta. Thanks so much. It's my pleasure. Well in an effort to get the corona virus vaccine into the arms of americans. Some medical professionals have been floating. This idea of giving single doses. Like they're doing in the uk but the food and drug administration says right now they're not recommending any dosing changes here in the us both the pfizer by tech and madonna vaccines required to doses taken weeks apart and for now. It looks like it will stay that way for more on the science behind this..

HBO Max removes 'Gone With the Wind,' will add context

"Hbo Max there is a move hbo just launched, and it has a pretty impressive movie library, but one of its biggest movies has been removed from the library very quickly after its launch. Brat. Tell us about that. Yes, the Classic Gone With the wind has been taken out of the HBO Max Library for the time, being. Being after a plea from twelve years, slave writer John Ridley in the Los. Angeles Times I asked them to remove it and that's largely because even the gone with the wind is a Hollywood classic It's been you know in the Zeitgeist for the longest time you know, but it's always been criticized for its depiction of slavery It makes it seem like. Slaves were content in loyal to their owners. And it also had plenty of racial stereotypes, and because of that John Really thought that right now is releasing the best time for movie like that to Hbo Max in that. It should be taken off temporarily, but then brought back. With a discussion on it to provide some historical context, so that people understand that this is not an accurate picture of. The antebellum south before the civil war, and that this is not you know slavery as it is in the history books. In really himself says he doesn't believe in censorship, but he wanted this movie to be. Portrayed responsibly. For their part HBO Max, did take it down and they provided a statement. About the racist depictions, and how they were wrong van in the wrong now they actually borrowed some of the verbiage from a disclaimer that they put in front of some looney tunes that they released a home video because there are some classic animated shorts that have. Stereotypical depictions of people of other races, but they had. I think it was will be. Goldberg did like an Intro to explain it and say were presented them uncut because to. Not present them or present them edited would be to deny they ever existed, and so that's basically what needs to be done with gone with the wind, so I think he's a smart move. Obviously, some people are saying comparing this to like burning books are racing history, but obviously since they're going to bring it back at some point with historical context, that's not the case and people need to grow up. You can ask me anyways. To add that is not censorship. If it's a private company taking it out of their circulation, it's only censorship if it's the government, and this is only the free market doing its work as it's supposed to be so i. just think it's really funny when people pull out the. Censorship, when it's not in fact, falls under that umbrella of
