Vatican: Pope John Paul II ignored abuse claims to promote McCarrick
"Report report on on the the disgrace, disgrace, former former archbishop archbishop of of Washington Washington says says bishops, bishops, cardinals cardinals and and Popes Popes within within the the Catholic Catholic Church Church downplayed downplayed or dismissed reports for years that Theodore McCarrick was a sexual predator. Earlier We spoke with Washington Post Rome bureau chief Chico Harlan, whose lengthy report is now online. We talked about the news that Pope John Paul the second knew of the claims against McCarrick nearly two decades before McCarrick was removed the allegations and in kind of a telling way. Are more specific when you're talking about what was being discussed locally among the priests and bishops, and then they got, you know very systematically sanitised. They reached their way up the chain. You could see that page by page in this report. But enough reached John Paul, the second in 1999 and 2000. There was some I'd say I'd call it a protracted discussions about whether my character their next job is archbishop of Washington. And it was clear of that point to John Paul that McCarrick was sharing beds. With young men with seminarians, and at least it was, it was clear that there were allegations about that, and John Paul would have also been made aware of Some anonymous letters that had been describing McCarrick ahs a predator. So he went ahead after receiving a testimony written from the carriage himself. Denying all of that and saying that he'd never had sex with anybody. Ah, decided to make the character archbishop of Washington and then and then soon after, Cardinal and we know what happened. Now, how does this report treat the actions of Pope Francis and the inaction prior to him? The frakking McCarrick I'll give you I'll give you an answer you'll hate, which is that I'm on page 1 79, and there's there's about 300 more to go like I can speak to that only based on the summary. Uh, It was like the Mueller reports for Catholicism here, so let's let's see what little parts are hidden away in the footnotes. You know, you can't just take take the first word for it, but Seems to give the current pope a bit of a past framing it. As you know, he'd he'd been assuming that his predecessors had been had properly. Evaluated the Rumors are allegations against the character and the character that point was really not carrying on is active role in the church anymore, so he didn't he didn't take action until A clear allegation of abuse of a minor emerged in 2017, and that led to the character removal from from from service in the priesthood and that ultimately the frakking in 2019.

Blue Origin chalks up 13th successful test flight
"What an exciting morning it was for the blue origin rocket scientists in Kent as they watched their 13th successful launch Take place. It happened at a site in Texas. But as Christian Davenport reports in the Washington Post The 20 year old company. Blue Origin still hasn't reached orbit or put a human in space and Christian joins us on the coma News line. What was the purpose of today's launch? Yeah, thanks for having me. So the purpose of today's launch was to launch their new shepherd vehicle. It was a test launch. It goes not to orbit as you mentioned, but it goes sub orbital. It goes straight up and straight down. Ultimately, this is a vehicle that's going to fly paying customers to space. We would have thought that would have happened by now. But they're event, some delays and setbacks and and, of course, the Corona virus. Pandemic. But while it didn't have any people on board, it did have some payloads, including some research that was placed outside of the booster that could be used to help the lunar lander that blue origin is developing for NASA in its quest to get back to the moon that would help it land. Very precisely on the moon on so that experiment was on board. The new Shepherd for their Askew mentioned there's 13th successful launch this morning. Well, delays and pandemics aside as you write, Lord and kind of has a motto of keeping a slow pace. Why, though they lost a contract with the Pentagon not too long ago? Well, you're right. I mean, the motto is Jeff Bezos has said that they wanted to go step by step ferociously. But there's been some criticism of the company that they've been moving too slowly at a time. When you see companies like Space six, you know, which got the orbit relatively quickly. They're flying humans. They of their first Ah, flight of NASA astronaut in May and brought them back safely a couple months later.

You drive by the manufacturing facility that blue origin is building there, and it's matches. It is absolutely mind blowing. And it shows you, Jeff says. This is the most important work he's doing is working space. You think this is going to be a big part of his legacy is dedicated Tio spending a billion dollars a year of his own money into it until while they're moving slowly and deliberately.

And next year could be a big year and it feels like we say that a lot In states like, but we're looking ahead at flying people for the first time in New Shepherd, they said.

Experts: This is THE MOST unequal recession in American history
"Look at the economic collapse resulting from the Corona virus Pandemic shows what has become the most unequal recession in American history Economics reporter had the long takes a closer look for the Washington Post and talked with comas. Bill O'Neill. The recession's typically hits some harder than others. We know that but the difference is in this one are pretty stark. It was God smacking when we ran the numbers. Ah, low wage workers. So we're talking about people earning $13 or last were lost their jobs that eight times the amount of higher wage workers. And here we are. Seven months into this recovery and low wage workers are basically still in a depression like state with huge job losses. Meanwhile, spokes in the top 25% of the income distribution. So a lot of white collar workers they basically fully recovered. Now, why are certain groups recovering more slowly than others here? It's really the nature of the Corona virus, and we can all see it is be drive around our town. This is just so decimated the service sector generally a low pain jobs that Aaron Hotels Hospitality and restaurants, and many of us can name those types of industries. Not to mention a lot of people who are paid in cash, Maybe clean homes or take care of our baby said or nanny. Those types of jobs and those jobs are overwhelmingly held by black women, for instance. Blackmon and people without college degrees. Now the federal government, of course, was quick to step in and help out when the pandemic began lately. Not so much has there been any kind of talk of assistance for these groups in particular. Well, everyone is watching the White House and Congress with bated breath and the latest tweet. The latest information coming out is they still don't have a deal on some sort of further stimulus bill And that worries me a lot in this story. We we did a huge amount of data analysis. To show that this is the most unequal recession in modern history, more so than the great recession we all suffered through, but we also talked to a lot of unemployed workers. And I just think about talking Teo, a single mom that Tasha Smith, who used to work in a casino in Louisiana, that casino Eyes, not just shut down. They've decided they will never reopen. Her job is totally gone, and I asked her. You know what's in your refrigerator, and she opens her refrigerator. And she said, I've got a pack of wings and a pack of size And that's you know, obviously, the impacts of a recession on any particular group can drag the economy down as a whole. Even if your group has recovered. How much of this? Does this impact our overall recovery? When we look at it that way? Obviously we're a consumer driven economy, So not only are these people live Being decimated. We have people falling from the middle class into poverty, like Natasha Smith were just speaking about. But this hurts the recovery in the sense and the overall economy because obviously these people do not. Have money to go out and spend. They don't even have enough money to go out and buy food or pay rent. A lot of people we talked to our unemployed are no longer pain ran. Several of them are no longer paying their car payment. One of them was behind on their electric bills. And no wonder those landlords going to do what are those car companies going to do? It starts to impact the whole economic change.

Pro-Trump youth group enlists teens in secretive campaign likened to a ‘troll farm’
"In the race for the White House with a pro Trump youth group enlisting teens to place messages online National political reporter Isaac Stanley Becker takes a closer look for the Washington Post and talked with our Bill O'Neill. Isaac. What do we know about this campaign and how it works? So what we know is that teenagers in the Phoenix area, including some miners, some folks under 18 18. Were enlisted this summer in an effort to plaster pro trump messages across social media, so thousands and 1000 tweets and Facebook comments with identical content nowhere in any of this, disclosing that people posting this material we're being paid to do so is part of a centralized in coordinated operation. Now, Of course, there are groups that link themselves to all kinds of ideologies and various candidates. What do we know about the group behind this campaign in particular? So what we know that it's it's over? Seen by a group called Turning Point Action, which is sisters before of better known turning Point USA, both led by Charlie Kirk, a 26 year old conservative activists. Very close to it that the Trump family he opened the Republican National Convention give the opening address there has been called a great friend by president That's the sort of group behind the scenes, and there was a more specific also, if UNIX based digital firm that was brought in to oversee the day to day of the posting in the vast, urging the coordination have we've seen anything like this in political circles before, So, of course, there are parallels in terms of political activism, You know, Astro turf ING efforts to Make a campaign or cause anymore grass roots or viral than it really is. But what is unique here and what experts are really tryingto understand and describe is the way in which the tools of social media and you know it's technologies are allowing users to do this in a way that you know, as I said, it makes it seem as though it's genuine. Um, sentiments of these young people when, in fact, it's being coordinated behind the teams in a way that's unseen because of the lack of disclosure that was going on here, so and that's why it's been like into the kind of troll farms that were run by foreign After is, you know, we get up to the 2016 election where you have paid people. Working from an office posting spam like material on Twitter and other platforms here. Of course, this is happening domestically in the U. S. Has there been any reaction from the online platforms such as Facebook and Twitter? There has been so both Facebook and Twitter responded when we brought this material to them and ask them questions. They've already removed a number of the account involved in it. And we're waiting for more answers about possible further action. And has there been any any reaction from the Trump campaign or even the Biden campaign at this point, not the campaign that I have seen s so this is a pro Trump organization. But of course, it's formally stepping from the campaign. So you know there's there's many share interest and there are You know, associative figures, But this was not being operated by the campaign per se.

An analysis by the House Select subcommittee on the Corona virus crisis finds more than $500 million in federal funds went to four companies which have laid off more than 7500 workers. All of them provide various services to airlines. The Washington Post. Lori Aratani has taken a closer look and spoke with come with Jeff Pooja. First off. What did that letter say? The letter is basically asking the company's what happened here. We gave you the money with the idea that you would keep workers on and now we find out that youth late workers off So they're telling companies that they need to bring these workers back because they're getting money to keep them on the payroll, and if they don't want to bring them back, then they need to give the money back. So which companies were involved, so therefore, cos there's G to secure staff. Flying Food Fair Gate Gourmet and Swissport, which actually provide services out in Washington state and some of the layoffs, effective folks that work and live in Washington. What has been the response from these companies? Three of the company's responded one company didn't but these companies say they followed the rules of the carrots Act. One of the hitch is here is that the layoffs occurred. Before they find their agreements with the U. S. Treasury as to receive the money and under the rules of the program, it sounded as if The rules of the program to keep to retain staff only apply once you sign the agreement. Still, if layoffs were done before they may not necessarily be covered. I think what Democratic lawmakers they're saying and looking at this as they say This violates the spirit of the law. Which was the idea was you said you needed bones to help keep people on the job. We gave you those loans. And you laid people off, So their concern is that companies knew that they could get the money they'd applied yet. They still laid people off. Well, Congress tried to get that money back. I think Congress will try think they're They're very angry about this. We'll have to see how this plays out for the companies that say they're not gonna bring the workers back. The committee has asked for documentation to figure out if Treasury was aware that these lay offs were occurring in some cases just at the same time that these companies were applying for the loan, so I think they want to create it. Paper trail so they could see what was happening. And if these companies indeed knew, you know, or intended to do these layoff, even as they were applying for these money do these dollars, You can read more at washingtonpost dot com.

"From both Republicans and Democrats on a House antitrust subcommittee. Joining us to talk more about it. Heather Kelly Washingtonpost Tech reporter. Heather, Good to talk to you. Thanks so much. You think s O. You know big tech criticism. It is been something of a bipartisan issue, but for different reasons. So what did the Democrats and the Republicans focus on in their questioning of these big tech CEOs? So it was a very long day. Questions at some points were all over the place, but they seem to fall into sort of two major buckets on they were divided a little bit of a party line. On the one hand, people were really interested in the antitrust investigation has been going on for over a year. That's a lot of very smart questions that were carefully research, so they understood the technology. And you know, some of it made the attacking a little uncomfortable. There was a lot of interrupting and sort of something. I bet they're not too used to. And on the other side, there were a lot of questions about conservative bias on the platforms, which seemed a little off topic, but I was definitely the second biggest theme of the day. Of the four big guys that they were involved in this hearing today. Did any one of them faced harder questions than the others? Oh, that's a tough one. I can say. On the opposite side, Tim Cook seem to get by kind of with the least amount of attention. Perhaps because there isn't you know the narrative of conservative bias on Apple. Ah, Let's see who also baseball's actually have a lot of attention because this is the first time appearing in a hearing like this, and it was the first time a lot of the the lawmakers had a chance to question him publicly. And then there was a lot of questions for Google and Dr Berg. Collectively, I would say they had about the same amount of attention. Mark Sucker. Zuckerberg may have maybe the person who has faced the most public criticism as of late. How did he handle things? This is his fourth rodeo up here, so he handled it pretty well. He's pretty used to answering well. They are pretty used to answering questions with non answers. A lot of stock phrases a lot of all get back to you on that. And there weren't any big revealed here today. It was. It was pretty mean as far as that goes. He did a great job considering Ah, what was being asked of him, and I'm sure he'll come off the escape. So certainly a lot of political theater today. But is there any movement in Congress to take any sort of action against Big Tech? It's tricky, though they haven't actually released the full report yet, but I think they're going to in the coming months on and it's not the only thing happening. There are also federal and state law enforcement probes.

Poll shows Americans support Black Lives Matter but resist shifts of police funds or removal of statues
"And talk with co Most Bill O'Neill, Emily. We do see a strong amount of support for the overall message. Don't wait. We found that a majority of Americans supported the Black lives matter movement and that was across different races and ethnicities, including a majority of white people. Now, however, when it comes to defunding Police Department's there clearly is some pause in these numbers as well. Right. We found a lot less. We didn't find majority support for cutting back police funds spend more money on social services. 40% of Americans supported such a move and 55% opposed. That included majorities a majority of Democrats who supported cutting back funding for police departments and spending that money on social services instead. But a small 14% my minority of Republicans. The same. 84% of Republicans are opposed to defending the police and among independents, 53% were opposed, and 42% were in support. Now. The survey also took a look at the removal of statues and symbols that may be tied to the slavery era. The civil war. And there is some opposition to that as well, Right. We've found that there were narrow majorities of people saying they oppose removing public statues honoring Confederate generals, 43% of Americans supported their removal. A wide majority of Republicans and a small majority of independence are opposed to this, while 74% of Democrats supported the removal of statues of Confederate general. But we also asked about removing statues of former U S presidents who owned enslaved people, and an even greater share of Americans are opposed to that 68%. Totally. Is there any sense that these numbers may be shifting? His time has gone by that. I don't have earlier measurement of how people feel about taking down statues. But we've looked at some of these questions We've asked in the past. Two about race in America and police as well, and one of the things we asked about was whether black people and other minorities receive equal treatment as white people in the criminal justice system. And in the question when we asked this this week, we found that 69% of Americans said that white people do not hurt that black people and other minorities do not receive equal treatment of white people in the criminal justice system, and that was a 15 point from when we last asked in 2014 That's polling analyst Emily Gus can read more online at washingtonpost dot com.
