K l b j dot com And now back to the market. Melinda Show streaming live on the news. Radio K O B. J at 10 31 Good morning that vote at the FDA panel was 17 to 4 to one, The four who voted No said. We only voted No, because we do not think there's enough data on 16 and 17 year olds in the trial. We would like to see more of that before we give the green light because what we're about to do is is make this approved for people 16 and older. Yeah, but those 16 year old 17 year olds are going to be on the very bottom of the list of people who were going to be receiving this vaccine. Yeah, One of the people who voted no. Is doctor are China Chatterjee University of Chicago. And she says, That's right. Melinda's correct They're not a high risk group. But my concern was the data was limited in that age range for 16 and 17 Year olds would like to see more testing in that group before we approve the general population of 16 and 17 Year olds to get the vaccine. So that's why you're hearing that four voted No. The one who abstained eyes from the University of Michigan over to Fuller and Dr Fuller says that she wanted to see at least two more months of data on trial participants. Before taking this vote. Mm. So you had 17 4 and one and that's the outcome and it may get the final approval sometime tomorrow. Yes, as saying where they're trying to figure out I guess the wording on hell Tonto. The emergency order on Donald Trump President Trump is not happy with that whatsoever. He's like Listen, I cleared all this red tape so we could be here right now And now you're dragging your feet again. Let's get this going. I want shots and arms now. Yes. Start saving lives is what he tweeted. Here are the numbers to join us. Call or text us 51283605 90. It's now up to 18 States. That are supporting the Texas lawsuit against those four other states in the presidential election, and 104 members said the U. S. House of Representatives. All Republicans are also signing onto that lawsuit. And we still have not heard from the Supreme Court whether they will hear arguments in this case. Monday's the day the electoral college meets and votes. I'm hoping By the end of today we hear something from them, saying we're moving forward is what I'm hoping to hear or Not hoping to hear that, you know. Hey, we're dropping this. Well, I would think they would probably say something today one way or the other. They got the responses from the four states that are being sued. All of those states met the deadline. All four said Don't hear this case. Dismiss it. S so now it's up to the members of the Supreme Court. Do we want to have arguments on this? I still think they will turn it down. I think Robert's will lead an effort to persuade enough of them to say, Let's not touch this with a 10 FT Pole. Leave it alone. I think if they do that We really, You know, we really have to question their their lifelong, um Ability to stay on the bench. If they're not even going to take up cases, which is prime for them to take up. This is a question of violation of the Constitution, which is why we have a Supreme Court and for them to just say no, because they don't want to get their hands dirty. Innit? Is. It's inexcusable to me and I if you're not going to do your job, I don't support you having a life term appointment to that bench. Do not do your job, Attorney General Ken Paxton says he has his fingers crossed. It's just a matter of waiting to see what they might decide. He was also asked today in an interview. Are you doing all of this? Just to get a pardon from President Trump? Is that what you're really all about? Because of your indictment and other allegations have been working on these issues. For the last year we've been we had 12 lawsuits in Texas that dealt with mail in ballots. Dealt with voter certification that dealt with all types of election issues, and this is just one more. All right. You can weigh in at 51283605 90 on set yesterday didn't help Paxton's case without saying this isn't for a pardon. When federal Investigators came in to start investigating him for I'm not exactly sure what, but they started a federal investigation. Yesterday s O that didn't help things the time he didn't help him, for sure, with people thinking that this is just a political stunt I our buddy over here at yes, Cave you reported the FBI has served subpoenas at the ages office in Austin on Wednesday. No details on what they were seeking, but that that is a part of it, and he's been facing the first indictment for years. That's been going on for a long, long time. 51283605 90 If you're just joining us, we're also discussing this Wall Street Journal Exclusive report today. That U. S Attorney General William Barr has been actively working to keep multiple federal investigations of Hunter Biden the secret for many, many months, going well back to the spring and beyond. And he has been keeping a lid on it and making sure that investigators didn't do anything to allow this to become public knowledge leading up to the election. So we're talking about the implications of all of that. It was announced by Hunter himself and Joe Biden earlier this week that yes, Hunter is under criminal investigation.

When there's news about a person or company good batter ugly? It usually ends up online but new reporting from the Wall Street Journal shows that some of the wealthiest Americans have found a way to scrubbed their images online getting rid of the bad stuff and replacing it with more flattering coverage reporter. Rachel Levy of the Wall Street Journal joins us to explain. First of. We'll ritual how did you come across the story so I cover hedge funds for the Wall Street Journal and I had been researching one of the subjects. It's actually in the story and started noticing some websites that drew my interest out. I was looking on Google. And that's sort of how this began this lead you to an Austin in Texas based company called Status Labs. What exactly is the service that they're offering their clients to status labs is online reputation management company? Their external lawyer. We are sent us a letter indicating more about what they do and what they told us in what they were we have in we put in. Our story is a single false. Accusation can cause permanent damage damage to a person or a company's hard earned reputation. This imbalance of power has made the first page of Google. I and oftentimes the last impression for individuals and companies The where continued attended on to tell us that fifty five satisfied employee's US quote variety of proprietary methods which are always evolving to help clients disseminate positive and truthful information about themselves themselves online. The first part of your story deals with Jacob Gottlieb who was a hedge fund manager is used the services of status labs to scrub his image Jacob Gottlieb. The league ran a large hedge. Fund called Victim Asset Management. A few years ago. It had several issues that came up one of its money. Managers was accused of insider insider trading and died by suicide a few days after he was charged Mister Gottlieb's former brother-in-law go into legal troubles as well and his on effectively leap was forced to shut down about a year ago or a little more than a year ago he was considering raising money again for Hedge Fund and and my understanding is that last year he also hired this reputation company status laps any paid thousands of dollars to do this cracked. Did it work. As far as GOTTLIEB's attempt to rehabilitate his reputation several websites featured Mister Gottlieb. After he hired status ops so he would search for his name on Google. You would come across these websites that appeared like news outlets but we're not actual news outlets google news in particular was featuring several of these of these websites until I called and asked about them and Google news took them down. They said that several of these websites didn't meet at standards over Transparency and he also tried to rehabilitate his image in the form of highlighting his donations. His philanthropy correct so several of these articles. When you read through them the the bulk of them there are overwhelmingly positive and fathering they would tout his investment acumen his charity and in one case found on a website called Medical Daily Times? It said that he had donated to initiative. Nyu when I called NYU. They said That he actually hadn't donated to that initiative Though he had donated to other initiatives that at the school though. Interestingly when you call that website pizzeria entire onto was Was the the number that picked up. That's funny Pizzeria Rian Toronto. Yeah and then. The author of that particular article had a photo that was actually A Canadian theatre actor and then when I tried to meets the candidate theater actor has publicist told me that I had no idea. has his photo was being used. In this way Rachel talk about wikipedia. which was started by status labs co-founders because that figures into this as well so i? The CO founders of satisfieds pre ran a company called wikipedia which was banned effectively by Wikipedia by the organization that is overseeing wikipedia Several years ago and going forward and to today's status labs one of the services that they apparently have provided to some their clients. Is wikipedia edits. Now that's not a problematic history on its own But you can't go in there without their permission Kenya well. They could use a free encyclopedia so I could create an account. And and and and and edit it but I have to disclose wants me to disclose if I am working on behalf of somebody if I if somebody's paying me to edit their page I am I am supposed to under wikipedia is rules to disclose that what were some other more notable clients of.

"A federally subsidized program. Sprint is now facing potential settlement with the Federal Communications Commission the regulator said in September that sprint improperly collected tens of millions of dollars in federal subsidies for eight hundred eighty five thousand customers. who weren't using the service as part of lifeline? Joining joining me now with more on this Wall Street Journal exclusive is reporter Sara Krause. So let's start by talking about lifeline program. This is a federal program that was created back in the nineteen eighty s for low income users and the idea was to give them access to emergency services. Tell us how it worked then. Sure so what this program is meant to do is almost like like the snap. Food benefits is to provide lower income Americans with some sort of cell phone service that allows them to either reach nine one one or stay in contact with family or a potential employer at a discounted rate and so carriers receive a government subsidy for providing this service and customers either get free service or at a discount it depends is on their income. Requirements are met and you found that throughout the program's history. It's already been revamped several times. Yes this is a fairly contentious program that the FCC under different administrations has debated what to do about it. How to overhaul it how to make sure that there is less fraud or abuse in it? It's a program that has struggled with troubles. Verifying customers. Initially customers would sell verify one. Change put that onus on carriers it's been subject to abuses from from aggressive sales tactics and sales incentives that you weren't within the spirit of the program so this is a this is a program that has been revamped several times in the past fast. So let's talk about your recent reporting and this was a Wall Street Journal exclusive that sprint over counted the active users in this program. What it sprint tell you and what did you hear from the FCC sprint currently faces a potential of regulatory settlement with the FCC four collecting tens of millions of dollars in subsidies for about eight hundred eighty five thousand lines that were improperly counted? What I discovered was that the problem actually dates back further than that so there were sort of two issues of not properly counting usage edge? The one that the FCC has disclosed has to do with sprint counting. Incoming calls that went to voicemails outgoing calls which kept lines that we're supposed to be dormant went active. What I discovered was back in two thousand thirteen and two thousand fourteen? There was another usage counting issue in which incoming text messages kept align active improperly and so that the company was never find for they shed some subscribers in Oregon but told organ officials at the time according to documents that I saw that it it was a a more widespread problem than just that state and so the Oregon Public Utility Commission which discovered both the two thousand thirteen two thousand fourteen problem as well as the most recent issue found found that in one case for example a woman who had died months earlier her line was still counted as active even though she obviously was not using the device and that was because incoming text messages were counted as usage. So what are the implications for sprint. It's unclear what happens next to the FCC is currently investigating the issue that they had already identified in in terms of the voicemail issue and sprint said that the most recent issue was caused by an inadvertent coating issue in two thousand seventeen. So there were lifeline. Rule changes in two thousand sixteen eighteen carriers who provide the service then sort of adjusted their filters in IT systems to react to those changes and sprint has said it was a coding issue. At the time that caused the most recent problem there was also in response to Oregon officials in the documents that I saw back in two thousand thirteen in two thousand fourteen sprint. Said you know this is also filtering issue you. We thought that the the definition of keeping align active might evolve to include tax messages. And we you know. Accidentally put that into motion now and didn't realize is it until Oregon brought it to their attention and the thing I wanted to mention is what we're talking about when we talk about line. Usage is the lifeline program has a requirement that the customers that are receiving in the service. Actually use it. They don't WanNa keep lying open and the carrier shouldn't receive a subsidy if the consumer is not using it so there's various standards for what counts as usage. A lot of that has to do with outgoing calls. And data usage something that suggests that the consumer is actively using their device. So are there implications for other wireless carriers that use the lifeline program program and receive federal subsidies. I would say that this is perhaps a reminder of the burden of making sure that you are measuring usage accurately because you are collecting in a government subsidy and the Process Wall Street Journal reporter Sara Krause joining me in our studio in New York.

"Some other stories. We're following the Supreme Court heard heard arguments today about the trump administration's attempt to end DACA deferred action for child arrivals. US Solicitor General Knoll. Francisco told the court that the administration the situation had the authority to end the program which was put in place by President Obama to protect the children of immigrants who came to the US illegally to lower court decisions found the government's Vermont's rationale to cancel. DACA invalid. It was based on a one page letter from then attorney. General Jeff sessions asserting without explanation that the Obama era program was unconstitutional and exceeded the president. Statutory power a decision in the case is likely to come at the end of the Supreme Court's term in June. The High Court also. Oh left in place. A Connecticut ruling that allowed victims families from the two thousand twelve. Sandy Hook elementary school shooting to sue the maker of a popular assault rifle used used in the massacre. The court in a brief written Tuesday said it wouldn't consider an appeal by REMINGTON arms that sought to have the lawsuit dismissed. The company argued that the civil claims for monetary damages were prohibited by two thousand five federal law in which Congress protected gun makers from legal liability the families have argued that the assault rifle was marketed. In a way that promoted violence the Wall Street Journal's Brent Kendall says the court as is customary declined to explain why it decided not to hear the appeal L. However I think we can extrapolate from the courts action today that they're not eager to get involved in this area or to flesh out what kinds of legal protections the gun industry history will or won't have twenty six people were shot to death at the school including twenty children. The American Civil Liberties Union and a group of McDonald's workers in Michigan are suing the fast food giant. The lawsuit claims the management at one of the company's franchises ignored allegations of sexual harassment. Attorney say the suit. Currently currently extends to eight women but they expect more name complainants to come forward and are seeking class action status in the past. The company has argued that it shouldn't be held responsible for misconduct at franchise locations last month. A federal appeals court. Agreed with them.

FDIC US military officials watched I live drone feeds last month that appeared to show Turkish based Arab gunmen. Targeting civilians during their assault on Kurdish fighters northeastern Syria. The Wall Street Colonel Says Americans reported the attack to their commanders as possible war crimes joining us from Beirut Lebanon in this Wall Street Journal exclusive is the journals Diane on Nissenbaum Diane you talk to current and former US officials who were familiar with the incidents. They were the ones that told you about these drones which contain the surveillance footage. That's right there were was interesting as there. There was a lot of of concerned that we found at at different levels of the government about allegations. Wins that the the the Syrian Arab forces backed by Turkey were carrying out a variety of war crimes. And there there were a number of of of rather public incidents But there were there were further incidents that. US officials had seen in these live Drone feeds that there were raising more concerns about the scope of the potential warcrimes in the abuses being carried out by these forces and the officials that you talk to. They were the ones that saw all the videos can't go too far into into sourcing but we certainly did speak with with people that did see the videos At at various points in the process the videos were originally seen by people in the region who were following the live drone feeds during the Turkish rush backed incursion into Syria and they were following it because they were trying to protect US forces that were operating in Syria and preparing to withdraw uh and there were concerns that American forces and diplomats might be cut off by these turkish-backed forces so they were following what was happening With these he's Turkish backed fighters and saw these incidents occur and They reported them to their commanders their superiors as potential -sential war-crimes for further investigation. Diane is there some disagreement over whether this footage showed war crimes being committed. I mean as this travel further other up the chain. Do some people think that the video or the videos were inconclusive. Yeah there's an interesting sort of split here within primarily the military military establishment but also in the in the diplomatic field as well. The people on the ground sent to videos up through the military chain of command kind of two potential incidents where they said that these Turkish back Syrian fighters were alleged to have a shot. Kurdish civilians aliens and Syria and when commanders looked at that With some distance they believed that the footage was inconclusive. Conclusive that you couldn't draw the conclusions that the people in the fields had drawn. Now there there is more to this because their State Department officials shows that pulled together a variety of other information open source information. They're their own reporting. And they concluded that these attacks were credible allegations of war crimes. So the videos themselves may not may not be as conclusive as as people would like but the other people that we've talked to have said that if you put that together with the other reporting that it does Raise concerns and lead to their conclusion that these are credible allegations of war crimes. Yes of course this follows the. US decision to pull troops out of northern Syria. Leaving the Kurds exposed to attacks from Turkey doesn't this footage increased concerns about more possible warcrimes by Turkish fighters. The US does not intervene yet. That's I think that's the point that A number of sources were trying to convey to us in this process processes that there have been a number of concerning incidents Some of them a captured on cell phone videos posted by these fighters themselves They we are still in the midst of a military operation That is targeting Kurdish areas in northeastern Syria. And the there is a a real concern that they could continue. There's been concerns raised about Even ethnic cleansing and clearing out of villages and forced displacement so so The concerns are real And this is all happening as president. Trump is preparing to meet on Wednesday with President aired on at the White House. Where are these issues could come to the forefront? What is Turkey said so far about this a Turkey? Has Broadly. said that doesn't isn't tolerate these kinds of actions that it would launch its own investigation and this is not how the forces should operate but The US officials that we spoke with were sort of skeptical Makola Turkeys real willingness to seriously investigate this one. Turkish official told us that no investigations have even yet been launched on their side to look into these things and again president trump will meet with Turkish president air to one at the White House on Wednesday and I guess the question as you you mentioned here is whether this subject will be pressed. Yeah and there's a lot of concern that they won't be I know many. US officials are GonNa make sure that it's in the president's talking talking points but the president trump and president air to one have this rather unique relationship for for leaders. They're both quite strong strong leaders. They they've had decisive conversations where the two of them have made dramatic decisions over the last few years There are larger issues at play The US is concerned about what will happen to American who joined Islamic state that are in prisons in northeastern Syria. They WanNa make sure that Turkey doesn't send them back. There's concerns about Turkey buying a Russian missile defense system and concerns about Turkey's continued role as a partner partner in America's advanced after five jet fighter program. So there's a lot of issues at play and it's not entirely clear that the president it's going to raise any concerns about potential warcraft Wall Street Journal Middle East reporter Diane Nissenbaum joining.

It's acquired from foreign carriers over the years the problem according to The Wall Street Journal is a lack of documentation imitation verifying that. The planes made all mandatory federal safety standards here with more on this Wall Street. Journal exclusive is the journals. Andy Pastor Andy First of all how many airliners are we talking about that. Have Paperwork problems. Currently thirty eight planes that southwest is flying and it's normal operations which don't have all the necessary paperwork and verification to show that maintenance and repairs were done properly in all southwest Qwest acquired eighty eight aircraft forty one of those have been cleared and shown to have all the necessary worked on another nine or under inspection and these thirty eight are the ones tissue. The point here is not necessarily true that they're not safe where they have major problems indeed the FAA in southwest. Believe that they don't have any significant difficult problems that they are safe to fly but without the necessary paperwork or full inspections from tail to nose. There's no way to determine. Yeah for sure. So that's the situation that the airline finds itself and currently I think decided that the indepth inspections have to be accelerated and it considered grounding the aircraft because it couldn't verify that they were all safe and decided not to do that. But it's quite a big A A big question mark I would say so. Can we clarify it. This way Andy without you know sort of mucking it up these thirty eight planes are basically flying without documentation needed for the FAA to certify that a plane is safe to fly there flying without all of the necessary backup documentation to show. Everything is absolutely has been done correctly by the owners and operators before southwest acquire them. The idea was that southwest would do all all the paperwork and confirmed that everything was as it should be before it started flying the aircraft. But what happened was put the planes into service and then after inspectors started started looking at some of the documents and southwest itself started reviewing the backup documentation it became clear that there were gaps. Some some of the material was incomplete. Some was was missing. Some repairs were done without being documented. Some repairs were done improperly even though they were documented so it became a very serious concern and I would say by the FAA and about the a little bit little but the more than two years ago the FAA in South West agreed on an enhanced inspection Shen program and so that's where they were as of the end of October and then the FAA decided that things needed to be accelerated the inspections needed to be accelerated because ause there were continuing concerns about the gaps in documentation. Andy some background here winded southwest by this aircraft or these these planes they acquired them between twenty thirteen and twenty seventeen from what countries a variety of countries Argentina. Mexico McCall some from some from Russia some from China and there was there were even Maybe one or more planes from Alaska Airlines in the US but essentially from variety of countries in one of the problems was all of the documentation had to be translated and whether that was done correctly or incorrectly as part of the question whether the full documentation was available when they acquire them as another part of the question but for for now the issue is the FAA's told southwest by January the end of January. They have to have a full inspection of all of these thirty eight aircraft Raff the way that the others have been inspected that were acquired from overseas and once those inspections done presumably this issue will be put to bed. How unusual or how common is it for? US carriers to buy planes from foreign carriers typically US carriers South Plains overseas when they're old rather other than acquiring them but it's not a rare. I would say it does happen the. US carriers need to fill gaps in their in their fleets either because they can't acquire new aircraft quickly enough or for some other reasons. And so it's not. It's not that unusual but the situation was southwest. Are I think the differences it's the number of aircraft and it's the problems that they had after the FAA initially gave it okay and said everything is fine. These planes me we all of our all of our requirements. What kind of congressional scrutiny has this attracted? I would say a significant amount both from the House and the Senate Inspector Affect General the Department of Transportation's inspector general has been looking at this and had some preliminary findings which they passed onto the FAA in the last couple of weeks and and as a result of that and also some inspectors inside the agency going directly to congressional staffers and members of the House Transportation Committee in the the Senate. Commerce Committee have both been looking into The situation asking questions writing letters to FAA Administrator Dixon and this quayle quite a a significant amount of scrutiny including the chairman of the Transportation Committee in the house basically telling the FAA if. You can't absolutely confirm that everything is Iraq wreck and you have all the paperwork now. You should ground the planes. That hasn't happened. It's not going to happen. But that shows you the level of anxiety among some members at least the Wall Street Journal reporter Andy Pasztor joining us from Los Angeles..

the debate unfiltered in their own words we'll go deep into the issues all Americans care about such as background checks stopping criminals and what the industry is doing keep firearms out of the wrong hands the trump administration's former top student loan officials said he will resign today and immediately call for cancelling most of the nation since outstanding one point five trillion dollars student debt Wayne Johnson's actions are part of a campaign to run for US Senate joining us with this Wall Street Journal exclusive is the journals Josh Mitchell Josh who is Wayne Johnson well Wayne Johnson was tapped by betsy devos two thousand seventeen to oversee the students own portfolio at the time he was hired as the CEO and so he basically over solved this this program after about seven months he moved into a new role with the program but he's basically been one of the top officials overseeing student loans at the education department over the past two years so now he plans to quit he's going to run for Senate under from Georgia as a GOP candidate next year yes that seat is being vacated by Johnny Isakson he's a Republican who stepping down at the end of the year for health reasons what is Wayne Johnson's plan for eliminating student debt as well as his reasoning so Wayne Johnson is it's interesting because he's running as a Republican but his plan Hansel student debt is actually going further than what even Elizabeth Warren has called for doesn't go as far as Bernie Sanders so he's kind of in between those two but he's basically saying you would support a plan to forgive fifty thousand dollars for anyone who owed student debt in the US so Elizabeth Warren has called for doing that as well but she would l. back the forgiveness amount for people who earn over one hundred thousand dollars whereas he's saying Wayne Johnson sang it regardless of how much you earn you could be docked her y the under his plan anyone with a federal student loan would have up to fifty thousand dollars can't cancel right then and there and so sanders has said he would forgive all student debt so he doesn't go quite that far but this amounts to about eight hundred fifty billion dollars by his math eight hundred fifty billion of the one point five trillion dollars in student debt outstanding that would immediately be wiped out if he could get this passed from through congress is this part of Mister Johnson's intent to get the government out of the student loan business yes this is the thing he's on board with this plan that has previously only been backed really by the democratic side of things to cancel student debt but the the flip side as he says look if we do this now you know this has to be part of a broader plan where the government doesn't make what he considers mistakes that the governments made in recent years and making student loans his argument is that you know this should be a one time thing and the government should stop making your student loan loans are at least severely scaled back its lending program so that it doesn't end up in the same position five or ten years from now so you know another part of his plank example is for prospective students he would provide a fifty thousand dollar credit or a grant that would not have to be repaid to pay for college can you know right now there's a grant program called Pell grant so he would keep that in place but that program currently only is for people who are of low amount lower oddest income to help pay for tuition he would essentially say on top of that anyone who's anyone regardless of your family background get a fifty thousand dollar grant over four a year so be total over four years to pay for college and then if there's anything after that you know that doesn't cover expenses at the College of your choice then you'd have to either borrowed from a private lender without the federal backing or you would have to dip into your family wealth if you have some to pay for college you know that that part of the the equation you know it's kind of a mix of democratic and Republican ideas the Democratic Idea I'm sure a lot of Democrats would probably be is idea boosting grants but when you start getting into discussing after certain level of grants you have to go to the private market I think you know that's that's more of a Republican plan to turn to private lenders and I think a lot of Democrats would would contend that that's probably dangerous idea so that's where you know he's a hybrid right here you know what kind of political hurdles does he face Josh isn't student debt forgiveness unpopular among Republicans in general yes so the w ABC News poll that came out in September we actually asked this question which is how do people feel about various different types of college plans one of the questions was are you in favor of of a media and full student debt cancellation only forty one percent of the overall public who responded to that survey said that they were in favour of that and Mung Republicans he was sixteen percent so this is very unpopular if you just ask Republicans how they feel about an total debt cancellation without asking anything else they're very much opposed to that and among independence the support level was only thirty six percent just by comparison sixty three percent of Democrats liberal full debt cancellation so ask Johnson how would he get around this because he is going to be running as a Republican for this seat and he said that you know he wants it's to address the concerns of equity by not just forgiving people with not just forgiving current student debt but he would provide a fifty thousand dollar tax is credit for people who have already paid down student debt over the past ten years so let's say that you spend your own money to pay off at Thirty Thousand Dollar Student Debt Tab and now yeah no longer have student debt will he wants to address those people who might say look this is unfair I paid my way what about me. He wants to give them a tax credit so that they would be reimbursed for their dances and he says he would pay for this through a new corporate tax which again you know this is a very unorthodox Republican position and I think even he would concede you know this this might be an uphill climb for him to try and get the Senate seat but he said that he has tried to put together a package that would address various concerns this would be a costly proposal and it would be costly in terms of just the total amount of dollars that he would have to come up with to to pay for this compared to some of these other plans but he says that he thinks he could appeal to enough different constituents to get this through I think the more interesting thing here is you know the reason why I wrote the story there's going to be a lot the people who are vying for the Senate seat I think what's interesting here is that you know he was the guy that the trump administration turned to oversee the student loan portfolio and he says he's GonNa run as a Republican so given his position of having had a front row seat to the student loan program and now he's coming out and saying we need to be forgive student debt this really does add an interesting voice to the conversation Wall Street Journal reporter Josh Mitchell joining us from Washington thanks Josh sure thank you women who work in healthcare occupy most of the entry level jobs but they found that the first rung of the ladder remains broken as part of the Wall Street Journal's Women in the work play series we spoke with the journals Lauren Weber about why it's so difficult to land that first managerial job Lawrence there are lots and lots of women working in the healthcare sector the healthcare services industry has the highest share of women working an entry level roles according to Lean Dot Org and Mackenzie but women are the underrepresented in the C. Suite let's go over some numbers I contrast for us the percentages of women in entry level healthcare jobs with those in top position judge sure so this data comes from a survey that McKenzie and Leinen did with a couple of dozen companies seventy five percent of all entry level jobs and yet only thirty three percent of all C. Suite jobs now obviously for men it's the reverse men are about twenty five percent entry level roles and yet by the time you get to the C. Suite men occupy about sixty seven percent of those jobs why is this is there a pipeline issue for women in healthcare denise don't have a lot of Leadership Development programs to help women move from one of those entry level jobs up the corporate ladder now we know also from the Mackenzie the and Leinen data that the leadership funnel starts contracting in that first step from frontline worker basically to the first management job and then it gets increasingly narrow as you go up the pyramid and so you know getting that first promotion into management is critical now companies I think are some of them anyway.

What's unusual about this group. Is that it it actually created a nonprofit organization that has the sole purpose at least thus far of attacking Amazon. This is what's news from the Wall Street Journal. I'm Ameri for totally New York before we talk more about Amazon. Here are some other top stories. We're following sources. Tell The Wall Street Journal President Trump trump repeatedly pressed Ukraine's president to investigate Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden son they say trump urged the newly elected president in July phone call about eight times to work with Rudy Giuliani his personal lawyer. Giuliani has suggested that one biden was vice president. He worked to prevent an investigation into a Ukrainian.

Please head head to our website. W S J DOT com the US announce new sanctions on Iran Central Bank on Friday Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin says that cuts off the last remaining source of funds for the country president trump threatened to impose new sanctions on Iran earlier this week following attacks on Saudi Arabia's oil facilities the trump. I've been ministration says the attacks were carried out by Iran which the country denies the US is also pursuing an international coalition to put pressure on Iran hundreds of thousands of students across the world took to the streets on Friday for the global climate strike and to put pressure on governments to do more to address climate change students were joined in many locations by parents and other activist groups rallying for the cause Mike this data in Brussels well. It's very important for me and even and more important for my children to stand up for a better future we really need to act before. It's actually too late. I I believe now. It's not too late but if we wait for another five or ten years we will face disaster. Some of the largest demonstrations were in Australia where three hundred thousand people participated in rallies ace. The latest round of protests were ignited by sixteen year old Swedish climate change activist Greta Tune Berg who will address the climate action summit at the United Nations next week. I mean of course marches like these won't do any concrete action and I mean it won't change everything everything but it's still it's such a strong message and I think that if enough people go together and stand up for for this than that can have a huge difference both in in the social social differences social tipping points but also put pressure on the people in power and to make them actually hold them accountable the UN is calling on governments to present concrete plans to to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by forty five percent in the next decade police in Brazil have announced the first criminal charges against valley and its German safety fifty auditor to sued over fatal dam collapse in January that killed two hundred seventy people thirteen individuals were also charged seven from volley and and six from the German auditor the Wall Street Journal's Samantha Pearson has more from Sao Paulo. No everyone named today was relatively low level. So basically engineers manages oranges technical staff involved in safety audits of the damn the charges today with a crime of false representations police alleged safety auditors under pressure from Saudi employees basically covered up dangerous conditions at the dam. Today's charges were very important as the police is essentially confirming. The valiant of I said are criminally responsible for what happened in January. So this was not an accident as the chief investigator said today maybe they couldn't have stopped the damn come crashing down in genre but it could have cordoned off evacuated workers when they knew it was unsafe by saving all of those lives a lot depends on whether these charges actually lead to convictions and jail time in Brazil which has an interest slow moving justice system. If you remember same thing happens we'll be on a smaller scale in two thousand fifteen when mine waste dumb joined by valley eighty miles away also collapsed killing nineteen people now at the time. Somebody said it would make fundamental changes to the company in such a disaster would never happen again. As we saw in January it did so a lot depends now as well Brazil's mining regulators which have traditionally taken a hands off approach in Brazil as well as values own shareholders ready to put pressure on the company. Pearson says additional charges are expected in the months ahead. Walmart says it will stop selling all e cigarettes after it winds down its current inventory due to regulatory uncertainty the rollback that comes a week after president trump said he would ban all flavored e cigarettes amid a surge in teen use of the products health officials are also investigating hundreds of lung ailments laments linked to vaping the precise cause of those illnesses is still unknown. New York City Mayor Bill De Blasio has dropped out of the Democratic presidential race de Blasios failed to qualify for the most recent televised debate and he said he realized in recent days that he also wouldn't qualify for October's the most recent Wall Street Journal.

"And now a wall street journal exclusive our reporters found that national security concerns could jeopardize a massive undersea z. cable project that would link los angeles and hong kong google facebook and a chinese partner have already sunk hundreds of millions of dollars into it for more for details. Our charlie turner spoke with reporter kate o. keith in washington kate. This project is called the pacific light cable network. What company is building it. There's a hong kong company. That similarly named called pacific late data communication company. That's building this cable and the project is majority owned by a beijing aging based telecom operator which is called dr poem telecom and media group and google and facebook are major investors in the project who is raising concerns about the project you describe it as an opaquely run group of american agencies that provides national security recommendations to the f._c._c. rate <hes>. That's a definition shen for team telekom so the concerns about this. This project are coming from that team. Which is an ad hoc inter agency group that advises the f._c._c. The federal communications commission unlicensed applications involving telecommunications matters for background. The f._c._c. has always deferred to this team telekom in group so when they make a recommendation it's a really extremely important part of the process and in this case the department of justice which is actually the lead agency for team. Telekom is the agency that's raised the staunchest objections to this particular cable project so far and some other key players on the team include the the pentagon and also the department of homeland security but we're a little bit less clear on what their views are of this project at this time. What exactly are they worried about. Is it the cables else chinese investor well. That's part of it. I mean there's basically two main concerns that we're aware of one is the chinese government links that this company called dr peng has and the other is just the fact that this cable would provide a direct link to hong kong which is a chinese territory so in terms of dr peng the the majority owner of this cable project not a household name here but it's actually china's fourth biggest telecom operator and although it's a private telecommunications company it does have many many links to china's government which is the case with many chinese companies frankly so dr punks chairman is a former shenzhen government official and its subsidiaries have worked worked on a bunch of projects with chinese government entities. One of them was building a fiber optics surveillance network for beijing's police. The other aspect of the concern here you're from team. Telekom is decreasing autonomy of the chinese territory of hong kong. Which is where the cable land so hong kong is a special administrative have region of china which has always enjoyed many more freedoms than the rest of china and pro democracy protesters there have been having huge rallies for months protesting beijing's effort to efforts to integrate hong kong more closely with the mainland so in the past linked to hong kong would have actually been viewed as more secure potentially than a link to mainland china but that distinction is actually becoming less relevant by the day in the view of these u._s. Security regulators and i would think that the backdrop for this is the trade battles that are going on between the u._s. and china including all the tariffs that have been going back and forth. I mean yeah. There's there's just such an array of interlinked conflicts going on between the u._s. And china. I mean trade and economics is one part of it. I mean there's also interlinked concerns with economics and national security where you see you know arguments over i._p..
