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

Climate science denier appointed to top position at NOAA

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

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

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

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

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

Trump pledges coronavirus vaccine will be developed by election day

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

We know that children tend to get less ill than adults do but children do get sick they do become hospitalized, and unfortunately some do die and we actually know based on the statistics so far that the disparities that we're seeing in adults with corona virus are also mirrored in children as well. A city study found that African American children are five times more likely to be hospitalized Latino kids eight times more likely to be hospitalized, and we have to take this disease very seriously.

High schools and colleges work to contain coronavirus outbreaks

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

Tonight president trump sparring with his own party taking aim at critics of his new executive actions tweeting that Nebraska Senator Ben Sasse is a Republican in name only saying he has quote gone rogue. Again, this foolishness plays right into the hands of the radical left Dem's SAS tearing into trump's decision to circumvent stimulus negotiations in Congress calling the move unconstitutional slap comparing the actions to President Obama's signing of executive orders after lawmakers could not reach consensus orders that trump himself frequently criticized. The country was in based on executive orders right now Obama goes around signing executive orders. It's a basic disaster you can't do it in theory is opposed to you know the old fashioned way get everybody into a room and get something that people agree on trump was not in the room getting lawmakers together instead spending the weekend at his Golf Club in New Jersey as questions linger over whether the actions will survive legal challenges, members of the administration struggled to even explain them.

Now, the corner points out that seizures are not uncommon in children when they have very high fevers, his cause of death is listed as Covid nineteen. Again, we know that children can get covid and we see that children can die from covert, and that is a concern among parents and teachers and kids themselves here in Georgia because they. Did go back to class and for some of them, it was in person instruction this week several school districts across the state have already reported positive cases and had to send home dozens of children to quarantine because they came in close contact, and then there was this photo that went viral from North Holding.

The school today were Sunday that suspension saying it wouldn't be on her disciplinary record but Hannah says, she doesn't regret it. I was concerned for the safety of everyone in that building and everyone in the county because. Precautions that the CDC incite guidelines at the CDC has been telling us for months now weren't being followed. And of course, the superintendent of that school district has said that while the photo looks bad, there is additional context wolf he says that look the kids aren't next to each other too long when they're in the hallway and that they are going to continue to take what they've learned from this week and try to implement it with additional standards and try and change things. One thing they're not going to be doing that school is issuing a mask mandate would the superintendent says, it's just too hard to enforce but again. that.

Action on suspending evictions from rental homes. There may be some other proposals in the mix, and in the meantime, we should point out the president just hinted at the path ahead in the last hour tweeting, we're going a different way that tweet coming from the president in just the last hour, and in the meantime administration officials are throwing cold water on the president's gold having corona virus vaccine ready by election day one senior administration official told me earlier today that timeline is highly unlikely.

But right around that time, a senior administration official told CNN that timeline is just not realistic saying it's quote metaphysically possible but highly unlikely and Corona Virus Taskforce Dr Anthony Fauci said. May Have to wait until November or December just to find out of a vaccine really works adding maybe we'll get an answer as early as October but I doubt it trying to put a finer prediction on the timetable right now I don't think any of us have enough information yet to know how that's going to shake out. The pandemic Bennett economy recovered somewhat in July with the unemployment rate falling to just above ten percent with one point eight million jobs added even with so many Americans still out of work congressional Democrats and White House officials have been at odds all week over Corona Virus Relief Bill with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, pointing the finger at top aides to the president. Now, that's been in the White House when the president's land that table and walked out that's really what Mr. Meadows. Did I on the table can't shoot staff Mark Meadows Jabbing right back I think for those that are suffering they. They should be asking the Democrats in the House and the Senate why why have you failed to meet the needs that we have so rightly expressed without a deal the White House is signaling Mr Trump will take executive action that legal drafting is complete. We've had this intense discussions about this. In the last several days, I don't WanNa make predictions. Democrats are also keeping an eye on election day accusing the administration of making changes to the nation's postal system that could slow down mayland balloting in a letter, the Postal Service Inspector General, a group of Democratic senators wrote the changes appear to pose a potential threat to mail in ballots and the twenty twenty general election President Likes Mail in voting in Florida but not another states like Nevada Florida's got a great Republican governor and it had a great Republican. Got Run to scientists Rick Scott, the president is seizing on comments made by Joe Biden, you seem to say African Americans are less diverse and their political views Latino voters unlike the African American community notable exceptions. The Latino community is incredibly diverse community. With, incredibly different attitudes about different things Biden try to clean that up tweeting in no way. Did I mean to suggest the African American community is a monolith not by identity not on issues not at all Mr Trump, tweeted biden is no longer worthy of the black vote I don't know what's going on with them, but it was very insulting. The president's attack on Biden are tricky for Mr Trump, who has a long track record of racially offensive behavior including sharing this video, featuring a supporter shouting white power. Now the US intelligence community issued a startling statement on election security today as the US closing in on the fall campaign. In that statement intelligence officials warn Russia is trying to damage from where Vice President Joe Biden. His chances to win the white. House the statement also from the intelligence community says, she prefers that president trump fail in his bid for a second term. These warnings from intelligence officials come at a critical time for American voters who were largely unaware that. The Russians were interfering with the election for years ago this time the voters know all too. Well, what could

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

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

He wants to see the president, United States in prison. It's an extraordinary statement from the speaker of the house. Do you agree with her? Is that how you see it? Do you want to see the president in prison instead of impeaching him? So what was your reaction when you heard Speaker Pelosi reportedly saying is that she wants to see President Trump in prison. But here's the question. Would you like to see President Trump in prison? Do you think President Trump committed crimes that could be prosecuted? He did when Nancy Pelosi says she wants to see the president United States in prison is that at all realistic You know, I think it could be realistic. No one is above the law, and that includes President Trump. If it determines that we lead to impeachment, or if he ends up in jail, So be it. I almost said that he should be in jail. If you become president in 2020. Would you want your Justice Department to pursue charges against President Trump? Do you want to see President Trump in prison? Let me press you, Congressman. Do you want to see The president of the United States in jail more than anything else, Wolf. Look the lizard brain that I have says.

CDC sets out new guidelines for reopening US schools

"The school calendar is not the end encounter. A new front in the back to school debate, every school district has to make these decisions. These are complex decisions. The CD's out with long-awaited guidelines making the case, schools should reopen in some cases arguing children suffer in a remote learning environment there really are have been substantial public health, negative consequences for children, not being at school and stressing, they appear to be at lower risk for serious complications. Complications from covid nineteen and are less likely to spread the virus than adults with the science on. That still isn't settled. What I can't tell you for sure. Despite the South Korea study is whether children under ten in the United. States don't spread the virus is the same as children over ten I, think that is still an open question that needs to be studied in the United States. One reason there's so much concern particularly in hot spots like Florida Miami Dade County. You're talking about three hundred fifty thousand students plus another forty thousand teachers, so you're putting tremendous amount of people back into the economy in a way that could could end up being super spreader event. Exactly. What doctors and overwhelmed hospitals? There are worried about. Is Way too dangerous here right now to have face to face schools and we're drowning. We're absolutely drowning here. This E also advising local authorities to take into account, the level of virus transmission in the community before resuming in person classes. When you look at the hot spots, I think most of us all right now. Looking where the percents positivity rate within the community is greater than five percent, many of the nation school districts pressure to make a decision before the CDC guidance came down some deciding to hold online only classes in the fall others postponing the start of the school year. Despite, positivity rate above twelve percent. Arizona's Governor Doug Ducey asking schools to open on time this fall while leaving the decision to local leaders

"wolf blitzer" Discussed on Coronavirus: Fact vs Fiction

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