"The people show up, I win. If the people of Georgia show up, we win. Are you ready to win this election? And if control of the Senate depends upon this, wow, the next month in Georgia is going to be extraordinary. Extraordinary indeed. Thanks, Jeff. On to Arizona, where CNN's kyung la has been on the ground for months tracking that critical Senate race between the democratic Mark Kelly and his Republican challenger Blake masters and that unbelievably interesting governor's race between Republican Carrie Lake and democratic candidate Katie Hobbs, who currently serves as the Secretary of State of Arizona. Kiang, what do our listeners need to know as they are prepared to watch Arizona and the vote returns come in on this election day? Well, David, we're seeing a slight shift in how Democrats and Republicans here in Arizona are delivering a message in these final hours. And really it's driven by voter behavior, both by what voters are saying and what voters are doing. And you really saw it at the Mark Kelly event. We got rising costs in a lot of places. And when I got back to D.C., we'll be back focused on this issue to bring down costs for Arizona. It's not that he's changing his message. It's that his emphasis has become now inflation. He calls it his number one issue in these final hours, leaning in on the economy. Campaigning with Republicans who support him. He's trying to reach those all important independent voters. A third of registered voters in the state of Arizona are independents. And we have Democrat, Katie Hobbs, running for governor here in Arizona. You know what's at stake in this election? The danger that Kerry Lake will be as governor and that's why we can't let her win. And so democracy is at stake. Abortion rates are at stake. Our public education, she's hitting a number of small canvassing events in the Phoenix suburbs, targeting those independents, those suburban voters trying to bring them out and Republicans, they're driving straight through the heart of Republican territory, really the heart of maga here in Arizona. This is a movement. It's not a campaign. It's a movement of patriotic arizonans who are sick of the crowd. We can't take much more Biden Harris. We can't take much more of Mark Kelly just rubber stamping their demented agenda. I really feel like this is a save the country election. Do you agree? All campaigning as a united slate with an eye at who they need to turn out as same day voters in Arizona, David. Turnout is certainly key it is key in Arizona. We'll be watching it quite closely. Thanks so much, kiang. On Wisconsin, as they say there in Madison, you've got a democratic incumbent governor Tony Evers. He's up for reelection. He's running against Tim Michaels, the Republican nominee there. And you have a Republican incumbent senator Ron Johnson, who has been in a very sharp edged battle with the democratic nominee for Senate fair Mandela Barnes, the state's current lieutenant governor. CNN's Omar Jimenez is in Appleton, Wisconsin. Now you remember Joe Biden won this state by a very slim margin in 2020, Omar, thanks so much for joining us. What is the energy like on the ground these days heading into the election? The days here pulls up to this point here in Wisconsin have shown no clear leader between senator Ron Johnson and lieutenant governor Mandela Barnes, but that's the thing about today. It's the ultimate and final poll of polls. Barnes just wrapped in more than a hundred stop RV tour. And he told me as it wrapped, their strategy throughout this final stretch has really been to meet people where they are and the biggest issues, and not take anyone's vote for granted. I asked him if he feels they've done enough to kick the two term incumbent Republican from office. I can honestly say we've done all that we could. We have been outspent by outsiders. The most expensive race Senate race in the history of Wisconsin that I can guarantee we have not been at work, we're leaving no stone unturned, all gas, no brakes. Now Barnes is planning to make a few more last minute stops today, but on the other side of things, senator Ron Johnson has also tried to leave no stone unturned. Finishing up more than 60 stop bus tour last night. He stayed mostly negative on Barnes, trying to frame him as a continuation of President Biden and as someone who hates this state and the people in it because of his past criticisms of its institutions, but he also hit on the wider implications here if Republicans regain control of the Senate. I would be chairman of the premise of command investigations. I'll be like a mosquito in a nudist colony. It'll be a target rich environment. The suffice for freedom. And it's not anybody else's fights. It's not someone else's fight is our fight. It's a fight that we absolutely have to. And those are the stakes that not just he set, but also barns. This isn't just a Senate seat. This is a vote for the future direction of the country. Thanks so much, Omar. We heard from one voter there in Milwaukee today courtesy of Wiz as to why he turned out to vote. I think it's always important to vote. It's our responsibility as in a democracy. For me, the economy, inflation, really where our country is going as a whole in terms of being able to compete globally. And I think those are some of the big issues that I'm concerned about. My thanks to this incredible team of political reporters that have just been owning this story for CNN. Be sure to watch their coverage all into the evening and in the days ahead. And I say the days ahead because I just want to end with this reminder. As you're tuning in to CNN tonight to watch the election returns or going to CNN

"The plans that were in place that were about to happen. It really is a worthy question. Oh, it's a very worthy question. And I can't foresee any scenario where Sean Hannity isn't compelled to testify before the committee. I would say this, though, he's worried in either one direction or the other, that he knew that this day was going to get violent and was going to be a mar on our American democracy, or he was worried as his text seemed to reveal knowing president Trump had lost the election. He was not going to win. There was no path for recourse. The results were not going to be overturned, and then what that would mean for Trump, how he would handle it. And I think, I mean, listen, this kind of tenuous effort to say that Sean Hannity is a journalist and that might give him some kind of coverage to not have to comply. Just doesn't pass the smell test. He's very much an opinion commentator. And he's going to have to speak to the committee. What he says himself, he says he's not a journalist to be clear, right? He says that he's a host. But I wonder, David, these texts, what are the biggest issues that they bring up for you? Well, I think as Alyssa says, it's being in direct communication with the president is really important because I think the committee wants to get to the bottom of how much the president understood about what he was unleashing and what the intended effect of it was. And it's so important that he and his chief of staff are getting are getting these kinds of warnings from straight up allies. These are individuals who are propagandists on Fox News who are certainly towing his line. And they're the ones saying this has got to stop or in this case Hannity, preemptively saying this is going to be a horrible outcome. I think that's really important. Whether it's to the president himself or to Mark Meadows, his chief of staff at the time. And I think, look, the texts are already very important that the American people have had access to that the committee has had access to because it shows you what people were saying when they didn't think the whole world was watching. So it's really quite revealing. Now, if there's all this jockeying about whether or not he actually cooperates or testifies that may be a little bit beside the point. Yeah, look, I'm with you. It's already revealing that he had four knowledge that something was going to happen. Why? What was being discussed? What did he know about what was being discussed? I love to find out, but at the same time, the fact that he had foreign knowledge, David, tells you just about everything you need to know. The former president was scheduled to hold a news conference at Mar-a-Lago tomorrow, the one year anniversary, Alyssa. But he canceled. He canceled in our reporting is because he was pissed off that people weren't going to cover it. That there was a lack of interest around his news conference tomorrow. What do you think happened here? I think that's very likely that reporting is true. I have a hard time believing that the former president grew a conscience and realized that this was, this is a solemn day and it would be totally inappropriate to spout his election lies while the rest of the country grieves that horrible day. It's certainly that it wasn't going to break through. But I would note in the statement that he announces he's canceling it. He continues to carry on the big lie. And then he makes this very absurd claim that I think is very important to note saying, Pelosi didn't deploy the National Guard. She could have done it in advance. So he incited a riot, then the riot goes to the capitol, a tax it, and then he is blaming Nancy Pelosi that she wasn't prepared to take on this riot that he incited. So it takes a lot of mental gymnastics for him to be able to defend himself on this day. And I think it's very wise that he's choosing to not speak. It's probably, it's for the best, David, for everyone, because if you're looking at the possibility of him having this presser and he's just going to be propagating the big lie, he's doing it. It's almost like a battle cry a year later. Yeah, and the valve of his speaking in his views has been diminished. I also think he's and those close to him have to be making some calculation about how to treat January 6th. I mean, if there's a political future here for Donald Trump, he wants to try to recast what it was, what it meant, how it happened. Because he has turned off so many people already with his role, whether that's determinative of whether the folks who supported him would still vote for him or not. We don't really know the answer to that. But I think at any political level he would be smart to try to step aside and let other people try to cast it as something other than we all know that it was, which is what takes me back to what we are learning from these fox personalities who were imploring The White House to take a different turn. These are folks who are, you know, who are driving a false narrative around all of this. But in the critical moments, when they thought they had the presidency or the chief of staff's ear, they were waving a red flag saying, this is horrible. This is wrong. You're going to ruin everything with this. That was the most honest appraisal that we've seen. Still, let me book Ted Cruz. So he can spout the very lies that I'm concerned about spouting there. But I will say, but I will say, even in that clip, John, even in that clip, if you really watch it closely, the way I see it is, you know, Hannity at the end there is saying, there's not really any chance this is going to work. I mean, I don't want to sell any false hope to people. But he's still, he's still obviously advancing it. I'm not denying that. No, no, I saw the exact, I think you're exactly right. I saw the exact same thing there, David. Clearly, he didn't believe it. It was sort of half saying it yet he's still put the guy on TV to lie. Right. Yeah. Good point. David Gregory, Alyssa Farah Griffin, thank you to both of you. You're welcome. Thank you. So breaking overnight, tens of thousands of kids in Chicago. This is a huge school district. It's the third biggest school district in the country. They're not going to school today after the Chicago teachers union voted to stay home from school until January 18th or whenever the latest coronavirus surge subside. So let's start now with CNN's Omar Jimenez. He is live in Chicago. Omar, this is not what the school system wanted. This is not what the marijuana, but this is what the teachers have forced. That's right, Brianna. I mean, in the communication that the public schools district sent out, not long before midnight yesterday, they called this an unfortunate decision and said they are now worried about the well-being of students that messaging also went on to say that teachers will not be compensated for this as they consider this a work stoppage. Now part of what the Chicago teachers union had asked for, a part of what they're concerned about is they don't believe the current measures in place are safe enough for students and staff to return in person. Amid record COVID-19 case numbers we've seen among students, staff and throughout the city of Chicago over the past few weeks, but the school district has pushed back on that saying transmission is not happening in the classroom. They've seen no widespread evidence of that and further they argue that the tactics of doing a district wide move to virtual learning just isn't practical. Part of what they propose is doing school level metrics on when to move to remote learning. For example, if a particular school has 50% of the student or staff population that has to either quarantine or isolate. Now, moving forward, we are expected to hear from the teachers union a little bit later this morning, but we know that this doesn't just apply to today the teachers by voting yes on this have indicated that they intend to stay virtual or at least move toward that until January 18th, but of course this negotiation process begins to try and get to a place where both sides feel safe

"Good morning, everyone. It is Wednesday, January 5th. It's 5 a.m. in New York. Thanks so much for getting an early start with us. I'm Laura Jarrett. Good morning, Laura. I'm Christine Romans. Hello everybody. Welcome to our viewers in the United States and around the world. We begin this morning with breaking news overnight in Chicago, where the third largest public school system in the country has followed through on its promise to cancel all classes today after the teachers union voted to refuse to show up for work in person. Teacher said they were concerned about a lack of lack of safety measures. They wanted to go online. But now, with no remote learning, hundreds of thousands of children are caught in the middle, just hours after President Biden said this. We provided the states with a 130 billion with a B, $1 billion to specifically keeps our students safe and schools open. Funding for ventilation, ventilation systems in the schools. Social distancing classrooms, even larger classrooms. On buses and everything from bus drivers to buses. So I encourage the states that school district to use the funding that you still have to protect your children and keep the schools open. Chicago had actually resumed in person classes on Monday in school officials insists that conditions are safe for in person learning in class, but this standoff could last for weeks. CNN's Omar Jimenez starts us off from Chicago. Well, this vote from the Chicago teachers union triggers a cancellation of class, which is what the school district warned would happen if this vote went through. In total, 73% of the rank and file members of the Chicago teachers union voted in favor of this in response, the school district called this an unfortunate decision and said they now worry about the well-being of the students. They also said teachers will not be compensated for this. Now part of what the Chicago teachers union has been so concerned with is they don't believe the current measures in place make it safe enough for students and staff to be in person, especially amid record COVID-19 case numbers among students, staff members, and the city of Chicago over recent weeks. The school district, however, has maintained that class in person is safe saying that there is no evidence of widespread transmission and the school's CEO, Pedro Martinez, arguing that this current tactic of negotiation isn't practical. And I have been very, very clear that it is not practical to have a district wide decision when there is such a variance across our city of how COVID is affecting us. It feels like Groundhog Day. CT leadership is compelling its membership to make a decision that will harm hundreds of thousands of Chicago families who rely upon CPS for their daily needs. For their education, for their nutrition, for their safety. That's real harm. Now, part of what the district has proposed includes school level metrics on when to move to remote learning. For example, when 50% of the student population has to either isolate or quarantine. Moving forward, the teachers union has indicated that this push to refuse in person instruction isn't just for today, but goes until at least January 18th or until both sides can reach an agreement on what safe in person learning looks like. Laura, Christine. All right, Omar in Chicago. So all this leaves parents, their employers, and of course the children in a really tough spot. Child mental health experts say uncertainty at school creates stress that's a cause for concern. They are feeling increasing anxiety around just how to be in communicate with people and build friendships and being able to feel comfortable in their environment. My 12 year old they still act so young, they're more like elementary school kids, their world was turned upside down. As adults, we are able to bounce back quicker, usually, faster, but for them, you know, it's going to take a little more time. This unpredictable school situation also leaves parents in limbo, yet again. The lack of understanding that we now have children and families in the crossfire of this gigantic mess that is kind of late in our laps because we have had a failure to plan for this moment, knowing that we were going to have a winter break, knowing that we were going to have a COVID spike. I mean, all of this is really being left on the shoulders of American families who are also hold trying to hold up the American economy at the same time. So only adding to the school problem, finding enough drivers to get schools there, the situation is so desperate that Biden administration now allowing states to temporarily waive some testing requirements for school bus drivers. Get this. The part of the test that asks drivers to identify under the hood engine components, that can now be waived until the end of March. It seems like a pretty a pretty good move. In August, many school districts offered cash bonuses for drivers as well. And more issues on the COVID testing front, the popular binax now rapid tests. Well, they're getting more expensive. Walmart and Kroger are raising prices on those test kits after an agreement with The White House to sell them at cost, expired last month. Health experts say these tests need to be inexpensive to encourage people to actually use them regularly. President Biden says the new rule requiring private insurance companies to reimburse people for rapid tests will go into effect next week. Officials say you will have to file a claim to be reimbursed though. All right, I do not see January 6th

"Did you commit to stopping your crackdown against Alexei Navalny? This is the prison colony where Alexi Navalny has been in turn. Can you see these guards or waiting for us? We can't even register to be here. Are you happy with your president? It's Lori interest in question. I can't tell you the truth. Would you take this opportunity to apologize to the people of Belarus for the human rights abuses that they've suffered at your hands? Is there a chance that the Russians could be planning? An invasion, of course. There's very little sign of any side backing down. It's got blasted with a water cannon. We can't go any closer. There could be some interception by the Russians. Pull back their troops, they're reading points table forces for the Visa then deployed. We've got to run for it right. Yes, come on, let's go. Mackie chance, CNN I'm will Ripley and Taipei, Taiwan, and this is CNN. We have breaking news, a short time ago, the CDC recommended the Pfizer booster for children as young as 12, but now only needs final approval from the agency's director. This good news for parents educators and students across the country eager to keep school doors open, that is not the case in Chicago, where a fight between political leaders and the teacher's union in the nation's third largest school district has closed the doors to more than 340,000 kids. CNN's Omar Jimenez joins us now from Chicago with breaking details. So what is the latest from city school officials? Well, Anderson, for starters, for the second day in a row, there will be no in person or virtual classes here in the country's third largest school district. The mayor, though, just moments ago, maintaining that one, they're not going to back down and two saying that they believe school in person is safe. Especially when you apply universal masking, rising vaccination rates, distancing when possible, and more. But further, the head of the department of public health here said the risks outside the school walls are actually greater than inside the school walls. While the union may agree with that, they don't think it's safe enough. One of the major sticking points in this standoff is the union once more testing because at the moment, they don't feel they have enough of it, which means they don't feel they have a clear enough picture of what the actual COVID situation is at the moment. However, if there is one good moment, I should say, are a good note of progress, a union official told me a little bit earlier as the day wrapped that there was some movement today and that today was the most productive day at the negotiating table we've seen, but clearly not enough to reopen schools Anderson. I know you've also spoke to some families who have been caught in the middle of this. What do they have to say? Well, Anderson bottom line, they are frustrated, especially since at least here, this is the second year in a row, parents are going through this. Parents like noberto casas, who is reminded of his experience with virtual learning and his first grade son. And the teacher's talking in the background. How did you feel in that moment? I felt heartbroken. I felt heartbroken because it was Isaac versus the computer versus mom, basically versus the world. And I felt helpless. We don't know how to plan out the next 24 hours, let alone the next 24 days. They point the fingers of the district, then they point to fingers to the teachers. I'm pointing the finger at my child. Because he's the one that ends up losing out in this whole argument. Every time I go to a roll, it gets harder. Then person. I didn't want to. This thing to happen. So that's why I wanted to get my school open. Now, cost us Nobel noberto casas once people to go back in person. And while not every parent feels that way, one sentiment they appear to share is that they want consistency and where they're going to be sending their kids every day. Now, moving forward, some of the dates that we're keeping an eye on is January 18th is when the teachers union said they intend to continue refusing to go in person until or at least until they reach an agreement on this. To teach or the school district just said moments ago, they want teachers back in the classroom on Friday. But of course, in the meantime, we are in this standoff where bottom line, the teachers union does not feel the district has provided adequate enough resources for them to return to class safely. The school district disagrees. I appreciate it. Thank you. Coming up next to the CDC and Biden administration have left a lot of people confused about which kind of mask you should use, whether they're testing is necessary, we're going to talk to a bioethicist who deals in just these kind of questions ahead. This area of Niger West Africa has been gripped by a lethal food shortage and children are dying. Staff are doing everything they can, but the situation is relentless.

Yes, come on, let's go. Matthew chance, CNN I'm will Ripley and Taipei, Taiwan, and this is CNN. Tonight a showdown over reopening schools. And we are standing by for a vote. Any moment here from the powerful Chicago teachers union, which has been threatening to shut down America's third largest school district over Chicago's decision to reopen public schools in the midst of the COVID surge. And this is a battle that is playing out in many cities across this country, tens of millions of children are caught in the middle. Many teachers unions claim proper mitigation after it's like testing are not there. But officials, including President Biden, disagree, and have made it very clear. Now, Democrat or Republican, they believe keeping schools open, outweighs any risks. We know that our kids can be safe when in school, by the way. That's why I believe schools should remain open. And it's very clear. The safest place for children right now is in a school building. That's the safest place for them. There's a level of urgency that we shouldn't lose around making sure that our children learn in person. We currently have no intention or plan to shut our schools. All of our schools here in Chicago, by and large are back this week. Could I want to just reassure you that especially if you're vaccinated, your child is vaccinated. This is behaving really like the flu and we don't close school districts, especially for extended periods of time for the flu. Our schools will be open in the state of Florida. I mean, it's pretty incredible, right? Just taking you across the political spectrum. But it's not just politicians who have all gotten on the same page. They are actually echoing doctors and the science. We're hearing the same thing from doctors. That teacher's union is wrong. And all the teachers unions that are saying that we have to delay kids going back to school are wrong. We know what it takes to keep children safe in schools. We need to get our children back at all costs. We need our children to be in school. Most importantly, the socialization, social development, the kids so sorely missed last year is absolutely and doctors say the country has the tools to get kids back in class safely. You actually heard the Chicago commissioner saying it, right? Vaccinate, any kid in kindergarten and up is eligible for vaccination. Boosters, masks, all depending on the age of boosters, but everything else vaccinations, any kid can have. And that's important, because every parent knows now that remote learning is not good enough, and there is science to back that up too or statistics. According to an education research group, NWEA, the math and reading levels for kids and just great through 8 were lower than normal this fall, not something any parent needed to have a study to tell them. But these are among the reasons that Biden so many officials want kids back in the classroom. Omar Jimenez is out front live from Chicago and Omar. This is really the front line of this tonight. Members of Chicago's teachers union are just beginning to vote. What are you hearing? Yeah, and so voting should be underway among the 25,000 rank and file members of the Chicago teachers union on whether they would want to move strictly to virtual learning, which of course goes against what the school district has asked them to do. And the district just sent out communication to parents just a few moments ago, warning them that tomorrow classes could be canceled and saying that we won't know until after 9 p.m. local time. Now the two sides were at the negotiation table earlier today and part of the concern for the Chicago teachers union is they don't believe the current measures in place by the school district are safe enough to return in person though in person classes resumed on Monday and specifically they say there's not enough access to testing and that only about a third of the student population is actually vaccinated, though vaccination rates among teachers are higher within a context of record case numbers over the past few weeks among students, staff and the city of Chicago as a whole. Now the school district has maintained the classroom is safe as we heard from as we've heard from a number of public officials on both sides of the aisle saying that the measures like universal masking, social distancing, are working, but also offering to go a step further saying that they would they're proposing metrics at the school level to then go to remote learning. For example, a 50% of the student population has to isolate or quarantine. They prefer doing that as opposed to a district wide move, which of course is what the teachers union is voting on now. All right. Thank you very much, Omar. So I want to go to Carrie Rodriguez now. She's president of the national parents union and Seattle area highline public school superintendent Susan Enfield. I appreciate both of you. Carrie, I know you have 5 boys of your own in public and private schools. You also represent parents across this country. President Biden has made it clear, you know, as someone who obviously is always been very pro union that in this case, he disagrees with the union and says that they are wrong. He believes schools should remain open. But is he doing enough? He's not doing enough. And frankly, the lack of understanding that we now have children and families in the crossfire of this gigantic mess that is kind of late in our laps because we have had a failure to plan for this moment, knowing that we were going to have a winter break, knowing that we were going to have a COVID spike. I mean, all of this is really being left on the shoulders of American families who are also trying to hold up the American economy at the same time. So the words are nice, it's not enough. We need action in this moment. So, you know, I have a parent as well. And I've been amazed at the fortitude of teachers, right? And that are coming in against all odds in so many cases. You know, I say that to say that the teachers union may not reflect what a lot of teachers think. We'll see how the vote goes in Chicago tonight superintendent. But let me talk about what you're seeing in your district. A 190 teacher absences today, a 177 yesterday, what is the reason for those that you understand? There's not a lot of transparency around those are. Okay, well, superintendent, do you have that transparency? What do you know? Yes, so we do have a breakdown of reasons. The vast majority are illness, some are for child care. But we have been able to fill those absences, both with substitutes and frankly with an all hands on deck strategy with using central office folks and others to make sure that every one of those classrooms was staffed. I mean, which is, I mean, it's incredible. Look, and parents appreciate it. I mean, Carrie, what reaction are you getting from parents? When we hear schools were closed or moving to distance learning, you know, we get that headline in Philadelphia, or you see what's happening in Chicago. What is the reaction of parents? Are any of them supportive of it?

Less dangerous, but spreading quickly omicron is twisting this nation in knots after two exhausting years, people are desperate to find a way to live alongside coronavirus, but striking a balance between restrictions and accommodations is tricky. At the center of it all, schools. Today, more than 3200 of them are closed nationwide. We need our children to be in schools. I think the term distance learning is like a contradiction in terms. I mean, Philadelphia, you know, when children aren't in schools, there are many aren't getting the one decent meal they get during the day, the instance of child abuse basically disappears because you're not picking that up in school, but most importantly, you know, the socialization, social development, the kids so sorely missed last year, is absolutely no, I think we need to do everything we can to get children back to school, but it's a precious thing. And because it's a precious thing, we need to treat preciously 77 of Philadelphia's 215 schools are shifting to 100% online today. Schools in Detroit, LA, Atlanta, Milwaukee, Seattle, Cleveland, Washington, all also going remote, or they're delaying their start for at least a few days after the holiday break. In many cases, they're waiting for COVID tests, rapid tests, which are scarce, or PCR tests, which take days to return results. In Louisville, Kentucky teachers are lining up to be tested before going back to class. They're hoping to avoid virtual learning. I do not want to go to NTI. None of the teachers do. The kids don't want it. I want to teach. And I'm scared right now, just the result of this. I don't want COVID. Meantime, hospitalizations in the U.S. now topping 100,000 for the first time in nearly four months, including children largely spared by earlier variants, the hospitalization rate for kids is the highest it's ever been with more than 500 kids admitted every day last week. Now, did those children show up because they had a broken leg or a broken arm and then happened to test positive for COVID versus did they show up because they had trouble breathing because of COVID-19? I think those two are still needing to be a little teased out and unfortunately you and I both know that people who are seeking to minimize the seriousness of COVID-19 in children are going to hang on to that fact, but I think we would be foolish to keep minimizing COVID-19 in children at this point in the pandemic. I mean, let me repeat that 500 kids per day hospitalized. And some doctors are saying they're seeing comorbidities like asthma. Think of how many children have asthma and what a risk that is for catching the omicron variant here. The possibility of sending kids home for the umpteenth time in this pandemic, the cloud that looms over all parents now. It's also threatening to cause major economic disruption if workers can't get child care. I am marching into this year as calm and confident as possible. There's very little we can control. But I can control how I behave and how I present it to my kids. Some school districts, though, did reopen on time, most notably New York City. The nation's largest school system under a new mayor defying a union request to start virtually. I'm going to tell you what's going to happen day to day. We are saying open. We're going to do everything that we have to do to keep our schools open. And I know there's questions about staff. And I know this question about testing. There's a lot of questions. But we're going to turn those question marks into an exclamation point, we're staying open. We're going to make sure our children are in safe spaces. All right, that's New York. In Chicago, the teachers union threatening a walkout now members will hold an emergency vote today and whether teachers should go virtual. But that can only happen if the board of Ed agrees, if not, teachers could be locked out of their online classrooms, leaving kids with nothing. You have to ask them if they would prefer that children who they know won't be in these buildings. Should be without any type of interaction, any type of education. The number of children hospitalized in Illinois has tripled since the beginning of December. The governor wants kids in class. I've said all along that it's better for our students to have them in class. But safely. And so that's why we've provided an offered testing and we've offered and provided more vaccinations. And so we hope that school districts across the state will take us up on that. Students in Chicago, which has the third largest school district in the country, by the way, went back in class in person yesterday. School officials insist that it is safe to have kids in physical classrooms, CNN's Omar Jimenez has the latest from Chicago. Well, Christine Laura, today the Chicago teachers union is expected to convene an emergency meeting among its representatives at individual schools to vote on whether they would want to move to remote learning amid a surge in COVID-19 cases, which of course goes against what the school district has asked them to do. Now, if they vote yes and actually don't show up to school after this vote goes through it, puts the decision and the school district hands as to whether they would lock these teachers out of their remote classrooms as they have threatened to do under similar circumstances in the past. And for the school district, they resumed in person learning on Monday and have maintained all along that going to school is safe because of vaccinations, universal masking, social distancing, testing, and more. Mayor Lori Lightfoot even releasing a statement Monday that read in part, we can not forget that shifting fully to remote learning is not a panacea and comes with significant harm to students and their families. The best thing that we can do for our students, staff, and all our partners at CPS is to get vaccinated. Now part of the union's concern has come from a recent surge in COVID-19 cases and students, staff, and the surrounding community, but also from uncertainty on what the current COVID-19 picture actually looks like. And that's because, according to Chicago public schools, data between December 26th and January 1st of the more than 35,000 COVID-19 tests that were returned, more than 24,000 of those were declared invalid. These past two weeks, Chicago has seen its highest daily case rate of COVID-19 since the pandemic began. Christine, Laura. All right, Omar, thank you so much for that. So omicron case counts are breaking records, but health experts say hospitalizations are the important number, the most important number to watch here with omicron. Thankfully, many reported cases have mild or no symptoms. And the high overall numbers you see could partly be the result of a holiday backlog in reporting.

"Like them stand up against the threat. Love you, love your show, listen whenever I can. I love you too. I'll talk about the abortion case tomorrow triple 8 9 7 one. S 8 GE triple 8 9 7 one 7 two four three I am Larry elder. We are really affected at Compton, by the way, you know Don LeMond has a civil lawsuit against him from a man openly gay man who claims in his lawsuit that a bar in Long Island Don lemon shoved his hands down his pants, rubbed his genitals, and then thrust his fingers into the guy's face. Did you know that Don lemon once told Dennis Prairie that I wasn't very smart? Larry elder a colleague of mine, who happens to be black, I think it's only relevant because we're talking about racism here and doesn't think Trump is unleashed racism. Did a CNN analysis? Just because of black it doesn't mean that he is aware and it doesn't mean that he is smart. Smart enough, not to text somebody of when I'm alleged journalists and give them a heads up about the police being doubtful about their story, mister Le Mans. Just because of black it doesn't mean that he is aware and it doesn't mean that he is smart. And so last night he goes on TV with another so called reporter, discussing the testimony of jossy small a, and never mentions that in that testimony, small a said that Don lemon is the one who gave him heads up about the police's skepticism. Jussie Smollett, the actor who is accused of lying to police about an alleged hate crime in 2019, testifying in his own defense today. At the time, smaller told police that two men had attacked him in the street, yelling, racist, anti gay remarks. Put a noose around his neck and poured bleach on him. Smaller his repeatedly denied staging the racist and homophobic attack against himself. He is charged with 6 counts of disorderly conduct on suspicion of making false reports to police. So joining me now with the very latest from the trial is seen in correspondent Omar Jimenez. Omar good evening to you. So small it was on the stand today for hours. The prosecution pressing him under cross examination on key details of his story. Telling this reporter was in the courtroom and neither the reporter nor Don Le Mans mentions that this guy testified that Don Lamont is the one who gave me heads up about the police skepticism about small as story. It's about that, please. Yeah, Dan, so the day ended during cross examination and Jesse Smollett for one denied tampering with the new scene around his neck after the alleged hate crime attack in January 2019 to make it look like a more serious lynching. However, he did tell jurors that he took that news off at one point, but put it back on before police got there. Just because he's black, it doesn't mean that he is aware and it doesn't mean that he is smart. Karma. Karma. I'm Larry elder. That's enough put down the money. I want to thank Larry for the job he's done. All across America. But Mike has been dropped. The Larry elder show. I'm really like a very go round..

"If you could explain what that is. Certainly the bathroom challenges supreme court based on case law that says you cannot dismiss people based on their race at necessity. The agenda you'd have to have race neutral reasons why you dismiss and people from the jury panel I think the judge was being very honest and truthful when he said it appears that it was intentional discrimination. I don't know how you can conclude anything else. However the family would have liked for him to dismiss this panel. So we have a panel. That was a jerry of arby's peers. Who said in judgment concerning whether the killers were ever be held accountable. So it is very troubling amy again that you'll have one african american juror. Who's going to hear this case. So i want to bring in the other case and then we'll talk about both. This is the wisconsin case opening. Arguments have just begun in the trial of kyle. Rittenhouse the white teenager who faces seven charges including homicide for fatally shooting two men and wounding third amidst the anti police brutality protests in kenosha last year. There's only one person of color on that jury. The judge overseeing the trial has ruled the three protesters that written how shot killing two wounding. The third cannot be labeled victims during the trial but can be called rioters lueders or arsonists if the defense can provide evidence to justify such terms this week. The judge removed a juror. Who was overheard joking. About the shooting of jacob blake the african american men left paralysed last year after. He was shot by kenosha police. According to cnn correspondent omar jimenez the juror approached. Deputy and asked. Why did it take seven shots. To shoot jacob blake then. He answered himself because they ran out of bullets. Judge bruce schroeder questioned the juror about his conduct then dismissed him citing the need for public confidence in a fair. Trial is clear that the appearance of bias is present and it would seriously undermine the the outcome of the case. I think the best thing. On the circumstances. I'm going to dismiss you jury sir. So he's been kicked off the jury but he was chosen to be on the jury. Can you talk about the composition of this jury and what's at stake in video. That's new video. That's been released Showing rittenhouse opening fire. You know the similarities. In two cases are quite shocking. When you think about the video shows both of the killers in these cases actively pursuing people who are on and that has to say something about our system of justice will we had an american today. You cannot allow people to down individuals Were shot guys at assault rifles. And then there'd be no accountability. Then there seems to suggest that the criminal justice system will protect certain people but can dim others who had no weapon we think about all these minorities especially black men in the criminal justice system and the prison industrial complex where there was no video evidence. It was based on jazz. A you endo circumstantial evidence but we can always find a way to convict them. Have a win. is white man shoo. Earn on people is seems that is such a challenge to convict them. It talks about the need for us to finally confront the original issue at america and that is racism and discrimination. I wanted to ask one more question. About the judge. Bruce schroeder in the rittenhouse case addressing the jury he evoked the bible to explain the hearsay rule. This is actually referred to in the in. The bible saint paul when he was put on trial in in in in this is i think it's syria was over in palestine in israel he was. He was confirmed. He was accused of some activity and he was a roman citizen which was not common but he happened to have been a roman citizen and so he has he has rights. We share no as americans. The judge also used his position on the bench to slam media coverage of the rittenhouse trial here. He's criticizing cnn for questioning his edict to attorneys not to refer to any of those shocked by rittenhouse as victims on cnn. Jeffrey toobin and another attorney there and the connor was made. The ruling was incomprehensible. And i think the obviously are not familiar with this rule. That's our law. The significance of this spend crump evoking the bible invoking the bible and then this whole issue of not being able to refer to the men who were killed as victims but possibly as reuters as looters arsonists very questionable when you think about the fact that that fans should be able to do everything they can to zealously defend their class but also prosecutors have to be able to zealously prosecuted the case and so you can't To shaq was on one party and let the other party have an unfair advantage. And so what we're trying to get. A is a system that would allow due process for everybody involved. And that's why i continue to say we can't have two justice systems in america. One of black american another for white america. We have to have equal justice for every citizen in the united states of america. And obviously my heart breaks. As i said i think about that jury telling the joke our clients jacob blake junior and why it took seven bullets to Stop him and his response was because we ran out of bullets charter you thing that makes jacob blake feel as he sits paralyzed today watching coverage about three people shot who was protesting for him to get a chance at justice which he was denied because no charges were bought there to justice systems in america and we have to continue to fight to say that we all the one justice system not will white man. Shoo people they are treated differently with black man accused of shooting people. The book is thrown at them..

Silence cloaked in darkness but just because history is silent. It doesn't mean that it did not take place. Social studies teachers never taught it or any of the massacres. Some twelve hundred black owned homes businesses were looted and then burned to the ground by vicious jealous. White mobs mobsters The victims insurance claims were denied. So over ten thousand residents were left destitute and homeless and place in internment camps. The president says quote literal. Hell was unleashed on that neighborhood by the way the destruction of black wall street was not the first or the last massacre of upwardly mobile black americans. In this country there were to a dozen at least others including rosewood. Florida and wilmington north carolina and the object was always the same to keep african americans living conditions below that of even the lowest and dumps whites.

Journalists covering protests face assault and arrest
"We have to talk first about what we've seen in the past forty eight hours. The appalling targeting of reporters who are trying to tell America's story there is so much that so wrong about this situation first and foremost the video seem around the world, the video of George Floyd's final minutes alive. It's so wrong that it's hard to see, but it is right that we look. It is right that we bear witness. And it is right to see protesters taking action as a result, but it is wrong to see reporters and photographers and news crews, being assaulted and arrested at these protests, police firing rubber bullets at reporters. When their pores are holding up press badges. That doesn't belong in America authorities handcuffed reporters is wrong. That's what happens in authoritarian regimes, not in America, but yet it happened again last night in Minneapolis and in New York. These threats against the press, not just coming from police. In recent days, protesters have ganged up on the press in trouble cities. We've seen a photo journalist attacked. We've seen on TV. News crew chased out of a park. That is wrong. Rioters destroying TV. News vehicles and stealing cameras is wrong. Almost everybody knows this, and it's right to call it out and say that America is better than this. Reporters don't want to be the story. They just WanNa, tell the stories of the protesters and the police and the residents of these communities that want to be able to feel safe. Some of the examples of what we see in in terms of reporters, seemingly being targeted this for example was on Friday and Louisville. is a local CBS reporter and her cameraman in Louisville, Kentucky apparently shot with pepper balls while live on the air Later, the police apologized to the station, but we've seen other reporters that here's Dallas for his other reporters being being hit by rubber bullets. Tear gas there. These situations we've seen in a number of different cities I'll read some other examples to you. A reporter in Columbia South Carolina was hit by a rock and had to be taken to the hospital. Here's a freelance photographer in Minneapolis. who was shot in the left eye while covering the protests? He says she's been blinded in. One of her is as a result in Chicago Chicago. Tribune, photographer. Photographer said looters shoved and stole her cameras in DC. This is in Washington and Lafayette Park a Fox. News crew was harassed and then chased out of the park by protesters who were cursing and screaming at Fox News and criticizing right wing media. This is deplorable behaviour by protesters. We've also seen in LAS. Vegas. The arrests of two photographers police took these photographers into custody. That is completely inappropriate Out The next morning, you know we need to follow up on these cases and make sure that people are held accountable when these incidents happen, reporters should not be the story in these cases, but it's happened again in the past few hours overnight here in New York City. A reporter for Huffpost was arrested while wearing police badge and covering the protests in Brooklyn in Minneapolis Angeles, Time staff writer had police firing tear-gas remember bullets at point, blank blank range at her into a crowd of protesters and journalists. We're going to talk to her and just a moment. Reuters cameraman also said He. He was hit by rubber bullets. Some reporters have had to seek medical attention. A news crew KCRW says. The LAPD shouted her rubber bullets as she was holding her press badge above her head, and at least one case as I mentioned. We've seen protesters being the aggressors. This is a photographer for K. D. K. in Pittsburgh. He says he was attacked by protesters downtown on Saturday quote they stomped and kicked me. He said in a tweet from the back of the ambulance I'm bruised and bloodied but alive. My camera was destroyed. Another group of protestors pulled me out and saved my life. Thank you. This is what's happening. Members of the media in cities across the country this weekend. It feels like targeting. It feels like an escalation. It is deeply disturbing. And, we're waiting for statements about it from the president and from other national leaders when about a dozen reporters were arrested in Ferguson in two thousand fourteen. President Obama spoke about that defended the rights of the press. We will see who defends the rights of the press this weekend and in the days to come. Let's talk to the reporters, so we're in the middle of this. I just showed you. One of them molly. Hennessy Fisk reporter for the Los Angeles Times, who's got some wounds on her leg. We'll talk to her in a moment and Omar Jimenez here from CNN of course, famously iconic arrested live on CNN on Friday morning I. Don't think we're ever GonNa forget that image Omar of you being taken into custody your hands behind your back There's been a lot of news sense. Then tell me about last night and what it was like when. The police officers were were moving toward your crew and you had to seek shelter on Saturday night. Well. I think Brian we expect some of that. When you come out to a protest like this, because part of trying to cover the clashes between law enforcement, and those that are coming out, is you you expect in some ways for for things to escalate just based on how previous stories like these have gone so our team actually had a plan to sort of watch. How this law enforcement team is advancing. Go back to our first safe spot. Then continue to retreat to our next safe spot, but that didn't stop. That stop us even though our camera was rolling from getting shot at Berlitz wise, my producer got hit in the back with Some rubber bullets. My talk got hitting his leg with bullets. Actually he says that he had a cellphone in his in his pocket there and he didn't get any bruising on his leg, and when he realized, or he realized the reason was because he put out his phone, he was completely shattered, and he still has that piece of that rubber. Bullet is well so so in some ways. It was the normal aspect of covering protests, but in many ways. This one felt just a little bit different. Sort of looks different same question to you, Molly. What happened to you last night? Is it right that your colleague? Photographer had to go to the hospital. That's that's correct. My colleague Caroline coal photographer. We were both standing right
