4:00 am
that's all for this edition of dateline. i'm natalie morales. thank you for watching. new guidelines on wearing masks and new incentives to do the right thing. i'm shepherd smith this is the news on cnbc >> i urge all americans, don't let up now >> tonight the full recommendations -- where you can and should not ditch the mask. the fed's now investigating the shooting death of andrew brown, jr.,, plus the independent autopsy revealed >> this in fact was a fatal wound to the back of mr. brown's head. still we wait for the body cam video. community on edge.
4:01 am
an iranian ship cuts off a u.s. coast guard cutter. the navy responds with a warning. tensions on the high seas. billionaires battle. tim cook versus mark zuckerberg, and your digital life in the middle. plus a test concert in covid. the coming cicada swarm. and the man who saved the internet, his death and his story. >> announcer: live from cnbc, the facts, the truth, "the news with shepard smith." good evening americans will remember this day as a turning point in the pandemic, a key step toward getting things back to normal or something like it and the most significant shift in covid guidelines yet fully vaccinated americans do not need to wear masks outdoors anymore, unless you're in a big crowd. that's the updated guidance from the cdc. the agency suggests people who
4:02 am
are not vaccinated can go outside without masks in some situations president biden said the new recommendations underscore the progress we have made as a nation, all of us, in beating back covid >> the cdc is able to make this announcement because our scientists are convinced by the data that the odds of getting or giving the virus to others is very, very low if you have both been fully vaccinated, out in the open air right now 26 states plus d.c. have mask mandates in place. today, though, governors in several states, including maine, massachusetts and new york, eased their rules on wearing masks outdoors in accordance with the cdc this comes as nearly every available metric shows this pandemic is trending in the right direction. we're now averaging about 54,000 cases a day.
4:03 am
the cdc reports that's down 21% from just last week. hospitalizations and deaths dropping as well, all good news. in a moment, reaction from america's original epicenter, new york city. then i'll speak with a doctor about what it will take to roll back the guidelines even more. first cnbc's meg tirrell breaks down the new recommendations hi, meg. >> hey, shep, the main message, if you get vaccinated you get to start to get back to normal, the cdc making it clear that right now, while case numbers are still high, that starts outside. getting together in small groups outdoors with a mixture of vaccinated or fully vaccinated people, you don't have to wear a mask dining outdoor, no mask if you're fully vac mated, but the cd still wants you to wear a mask if you attend a crowded outdoor event like a live performance or a sports game so, how about inside masks are still recommended even
4:04 am
for fully vaccinated people, but the cdc says it's safe to visit the hair salon, worship service, indoor restaurants or bar and exercise classes, many of which it says are much less safe for unvaccinated people, even with masks. by the way, what does fully vaccinated mean? either you're two weeks out from your second shot of pfizer or moderna or two weeks out from your one j&j shot. experts like dr. eric topel told us today they hope this turns around the decline in the dail pace of vaccinations in the u.s. >> we need to get the incentive going. people need to understand if they're not vaccinated, it really is a benefit. it's nice to appeal to the atruism, do things that are good for everyone else, but it's not like giving positive incentives. >> some states are working on other incentive. in connecticut a free drink at certain restaurants. in west virginia, people age 16
4:05 am
to 35 who get the vaccine will also get a free $100 savings bond >> free drinks, great idea meg, thank you dr. mario ramirez, emergency physician, former pandemic and emerging threats coordinator under president obama. doctor, thank you. relaxing the mask guidance feels like a big step. is this the beginning of the end of the pandemic if more americans get vaccinated >> it's a great step in the right direction. i think the president made the right point today, which is that guidance today is not about politics it's a data-driven recommendation that is based on how we see the vaccines behaving in the wild. we're seeing the transmission rates among vaccinated persons is extremely low, and so we can start to loosen some of those recommendations. there are things, to your point, that do have to happen before we continue to make progress and declare the pandemic over. testing is a key part of that, but this is a good step in the right direction. >> you know, convincing people to get vaccinated is the biggest challenge.
4:06 am
the director of the nih says there's too much of the finger wagging stuff. do you agree what should the approach be? >> i think it takes lots of different approaches clearly there are a group of people who need to hear strong recommendations, but polling clearly suggests that other people don't respond well. for us to continue to turn the corner, it's going to take a couple different things. the first is probably persistent messaging. those of us who have worked in vaccine campaigns know these are long and hard-fought efforts that take years before we make consistent progress. the next thing it's probably going to take is an improvement in convenience one of the things we're looking forward to in the fall is whether vaccine manufacturers can bundle a flu and coronavirus vaccine together if we can do that, that will go a long way in improving the uptake of the vaccine. >> dr. ramirez, thank you so much let's get reaction now from new york city. nbc's isa gutierrez is live in
4:07 am
central park for us tonight. hey what people there, what are you hearing from them about these relaxed rules? >> reporter: it's been a beautiful and busy day out here in central park you can see, i'm right here by the bike path here and across the way from the sheep meadow. honestly now only about a third of people are not wearing masks. most people are wearing masks. when i asked folks how they feel about this new guidance, a lot of them said it doesn't change things for them. they're already comfortable not wearing masks outside. some people said i'm still going going to wear it until there's herd immunity. particularly here in new york. most people i talked to said they're feeling hopeful with this news. >> it's exciting to finally hear people and see people. >> i think this is exciting and a step in the right direction. >> i get to go back and school, communicate with my friends, play outside with my friends. >> people must be freed, given the chance to breathe free air and live a normal life >> even with the pandemic, people are very respectful of
4:08 am
other people so i think we're going to get through this. >> i think it's exciting it says to me we're making this progress >> reporter: health experts are hoping this would be an incentive for people who haven't been vaccinated yet to go get vaccinated i did talk to some folks here who haven't yet been vaccinated, asked them does this push you to go out and get your shots? most said not really they kind of made up their minds or still will wait and see despite the updated guidance. >> hope lives. isa, thanks. there's new video that shows the moments leading up to the police shooting of andrew brown jr sheriff's deputies shot brown in his car last week, while they were executing a search warrant at his home in elizabeth city, north carolina we still haven't seen the body cam video, but a nearby security camera recorded the deputies pulling up in a pickup truck look
4:09 am
[ bleep ]. >> well, that's the video. new today the fbi has launched a civil rights investigation into the shooting lawyers for brown's family released their own findings of their own independent autopsy. the lawyers say the cops shot brown five times as they moved in to arrest him, four shots in the arm and a kill shot in the back of his head as he tried to drive away >> he was leaving the site trying to evade being shot at by these particular law enforcement officers who we believe did nothing but a straight-out execution by shooting him in the back of his head as he was trying to get away in a moving vehicle.
4:10 am
>> well, according to a search warrant, brown allegedly sold drugs to an undercover informant and the deputies were there to arrest him for intent to sel three grams of meth, three grams of cocaine the family's lawyers say the warrant was no license to kill. >> the law enforcement in this country cannot be judge, jury and executioner. andrew did not get his due process. he was innocent. i don't care what the warrant, what the search warrant, he was innocent he maintained presumptions of innocence. >> looking ahead, we could find out tomorrow if and when the public might see the police body cam video from the shooting. nbc's meagan fitzgerald is on the scene tonight. >> reporter: that hearing is scheduled for tomorrow morning at 10:00 a.m that's when we could hear from a judge whether or not the public will be able to see that video now, the media, including nbc news, has filed a petition, and
4:11 am
so has the sheriff, as he has promised to be transparent, but there's growing criticism from the family who was only able to see a 20-second snippet or a redacted video >> law enforcement intentionally edited the video to 20 seconds, intentionally blurred out the officers and guns, and showed us what they wanted to show us, under the guise of it being pertinent. >> reporter: i can tell you the community here is outraged, taking to the streets for the sixth night in a row, demanding the release of that video. today, andrew brown's son saying that between the snippet, the 20-second video he saw and the newly released autopsy that the family commissioned, he is convinced that his father was executed >> yesterday i said he was executed this autopsy report showed me that was correct those three gunshots to the arm,
4:12 am
that wasn't enough that wasn't enough it's obvious he was trying to get away it's obvious and they're going to shoot him in the back of the head man, that [ bleep ] isn't right. >> reporter: the sheriff says that autopsy is one piece of the larger puzzle and he's calling for the state's investigation to be completed meanwhile, the governor of north carolina is calling for a special investigator, a special prosecutor, to take over this case, shep. >> meagan, thank you let's go to monty freeman now, city manager of the city, only on the job since january and first african american to serve as city manager there. montrae, how do you feel about it >> it's an honor to be here,
4:13 am
shep it's not a privilege at all, though i absolutely welcome the governor's request i think it's necessary if we're going to do it right and the process is going to be trusted, that has to happen, but more importantly for the brown family, they deserve that at the very least. >> i know you can't control the decision about this video, but the family was shown only a redacted 20 seconds of one camera the law doesn't say they can't see the whole thing. it's written nowhere how do you explain that to your citizens what are you telling them? >> i can't explain it. we've had press members to make a request of our city cameras. that process is to send a request in writing, sign for it and you'll receive it. it's not redacted. it's not changed it's public record although our cameras in the city don't show what their body cam footage i'm sure will show, you give it. you can't -- you shouldn't change it and then decide what someone sees >> the sheriff talks about ongoing investigation, and he
4:14 am
can't talk, but sheriff tommy wooten could come out and sort of be a sort of salve on this. they're calling for him to resign does he have your confidence >> i'm trying to believe in him, shep, i really am, but i'm not seeing it. you know, as you said, i'm an african-american man this feels like, even sitting in my seat, yet another one this community is hurting. this family is hurting they lost a loved one. his children lost a father as i said, it's an honor to be here, but it's not a privilege at all, and my heartfelt prayers go out to the brown family. >> generally speaking, the relationship between the police department there, or law enforcement there, i should say, and the people of the community, how is it? prior to this. >> chief eddie buffalo, our police chief for the city, he's been here nine years, and he's been doing community policing since day one.
4:15 am
so, our police department have an amazing relationship. >> what about the county this is county >> i can't speak for it. i haven't been here long enough to see it. i would say this process has definitely been extremely disappointing for me >> mr. city manager, montre freeman, thank you best to your people. i appreciate it. >> thank you, shep. u.s. coast guard ships harassed in international waters have you seen this boats from iran crossing at close range, ignoring all the warnings and calls to get away tonight the navy's noisy response she was suspended from her cheerleading team for lashing out on social media when she didn't make varsity, now her case on the free speech rights of students heads to the u.s. supreme court. and a handshake. remember that? oh, they did it. >> ah!
4:16 am
>> used to be good for a contact, then covid. as we edge back to something more normal, what is the new etiquette for meeting in the flesh? the facts, the truth, the news with shepard smith back in 60 seconds shipstation saves us so much time it makes it really easy and seamless pick an order print everything you need slap the label on ito the box and it's ready to go our cost for shipping, were cut in half just like that go to shipstation/tv and get 2 months free
4:17 am
a lot of tension flaring between the united states and iran in the persian gulf two close calls this month alone, the latest just last night. the navy says one of its ships had to fire warning shots at three armed iranian speed boats. they got way too close and ignored the warnings then there was this encounter from april 2nd that big vessel is an iranian revolutionary guard ship, getting what is described as dangerously close to the u.s. coast guard ship, forcing it to do a defensive maneuver. to avoid the collision that's according to the navy came within 70 yards if you look close, you can see the smoke coming up in the back after they reversed engines on
4:18 am
the u.s. ship. at any rate, this has been going on for a while nbc's daniel delose covers the pentagon how concerned are officials about this, or is this just taunting >> i think they are concerned. they want this violated international law. it was unsafe, dangerous contact that came really close to a collision, as you can see, and there were repeated warnings by radio that the iranian vessels ignored. the navy says we have the right to defend ourselves in these situations i think what's interesting is we used to see these kinds of events pretty often, for years and for some reason, it tapered off in 2018. and then analysts are saying, look at the timing of this two of these incidents just in april right as there's these high-stakes diplomatic talks going on in vienna between iran and world powers to try to revive the 2015 nuclear agreement. the revolutionary guard is notoriously hard-lined they have rivals inside the
4:19 am
iranian regime so it's possible these incidents are also directed inside iran against people who the revolutionary guard says are too ready to compromise with the westwest >> dan deluce at the pentagon. thanks the supreme court is taking a major free speech case tomorrow it involves a high school cheerleader. she was suspended from her team because of something she posted on snapchat. the question at the heart of this case is this, can a school punish a student for something they say when they're off campus here's nbc news justice correspondent pete williams. >> reporter: when brandy leavy was a ninth grader in pennsylvania, she discovered one saturday that she did not make the varsity cheerleading team and would remain on the junior varsity squad. so she lashed out, as people her age often do, on social media. she posted a photo of herself and a friend making a rude gesture and she wrote using a
4:20 am
word we can't say, blank school, blank softball, blank cheer, blank everything >> i was a 14-year-old kid expressing my feelings expressing how i felt. that's how kids do it. they do it over social media. >> reporter: she assumed that message would quickly vanish, but a classmate took a screen shot and showed it to her mother who happened to be one of the high school cheerleading coaches. brandi was suspended from the team she and her parents sued, saying the school should not be able to punish her for her off campus expression the federal courts agreed. but the school districts says schools must be able to take action against any speech that is a threat. especially when social media is so pervasive and children are offcampus when they attend class by remote learning >> we want to make sure the supreme court doesn't paint with a brush that is so broad that it limits the ability of schools to address the very important questions of speech that is harassing speecheason
4:21 am
for hoping that >> reporter: brandi leavy dad has another reason for hoping that off-campus expression isn't res restricted >> that's what our parents going on in our children's lives through social media we see posts or hear how thee feeling. >> the court hears the case tomorrow and will issue a decision by late june. the biden administration is siding with the school, saying students can be punished for disruptive expression, no matter where it comes from. battle of billionaires apple's tim cook, facebook's mark zuckerberg, at odds at issue, your privacy odds at issue -- your privacy. plus, tess end of march, an experiment bashes loana, can thousands of people attend plus, at the end of march, an experiment. barcelona. can thousands of people attend a concert, wear masks, be all together and avoid covid spread? well, the results are in

the clash of the titans insn silicon valley over your privacy. the latest shot fired by apple the company rolled out a new software update that could upend a big part of facebook's business when you're using apps on your iphone, you might start to see this, a popup message that gives you a choice whether to block apps from tracking you across other apps and collect personal data, like age, location, health information and spending habitse it
4:25 am
tracks you, then sells your data it helps other companies target thei this would be a major blow for facebook's $84 billion online advertising business, because it tracks you, then sells your data it helps other companies target their ads. mark zuckerberg argues that apple's new feature could crush small businesses that rely on targeted ads to reach its customers. but apple's tim cook, with a completely different business model says facebook collects too much data and it could be exploited. cnbc's andrew ross sorkin is here now is apple being sort of altruistic here, or is it just really trying to gain from this move >> the truth is somewhere in the middle apple has made a point of marketing itself as a company that cares about privacy, and i believe they genuinely believe that by preventing apps like facebook and others from targeting people, at least giving people the option,
4:26 am
benefits their end user. and it does. at the same time, invariably, as you might imagine, it does have an impact on companies like facebook, and there are elements of facebook's business that are competing increasingly with apple. there's the competition piece on one side, but there's a privacy piece on the other >> you know, andrew, two other billionaires getting into it jeff bezos' blue origin, challenging nasa's decision to award a nearly $3 billion lunar landing contract to elon musk's spacex musk tweeting, can't get it up, to orbit, lol. a battle of egos, obviously, but is bezos just being a sore loser here >> the truth is elon musk's spacex is thus far far ahead in terms of where they are and the success they've had relative to blue origin. there was a view that nasa was going to award this contract to two different companies, in part to create additional competition.
4:27 am
i think there really is deep frustration within the blue origin team that they were not selected, or at least that there were not two selected. perhaps this lawsuit and case they're bringing is an effort to push nasa, if not this time next time it's a little like running up to the ump, shep, that maybe you're not getting the call this time, but you may get the call next time i think that's what's happening here >> and you have a great time yelling at him see you in the morning on "squawk box. thanks a lot. >> thank you. he came looking for the american dream he found it. then last summer, it all went up in flames. now he's cooking up a second chance from a trailer in an alley. and emergency supplies shipped to india, as covid continues to surge out of control. the situation a historic disaster and getting worse

4:33 am
on health care, focus on basic health care. >> reporter: only until cases started to soar did the indian government fast track approval of foreign vaccines like moderna and pfizer, but leaving it up to the individual states to purchase the vaccines, while it's domestic manufacturers try to ramp up supply. less than 2% of the population is fully vaccinated. >> there is no doubt in my mind this government was woefully unprepared for this crisis. >> reporter: now prime minister modi facing criticism over his response, but his approval rating has only fallen slightly, to 70% in recent weeks >> his popularity is going to take a hit i mean, the extent of urban and middle class anger we're seeing right now in india, we have not seen in the seven years modi has been in power.

4:36 am
beyond, as we go around the world on cnbc. after a year of elbow taps and fist bumps, zoom meetings and six feet away gatherings, going into the summer, i think you might be a little socially rusty? now whether everyone is fully vaccinated is another factor handshake when you meet people hug friends? no cdc guidelines for that so an etiquette expert broke it down for cnbc's jane wells >> reporter: are you ready for hand-to-hand combat -- i mean contact maybe not. you're offering me your hand >> you don't want to take it. >> reporter: let me think about it as we ditch zoom for the outside world, the pressure is real. >> let's do it a year ago dr. anthony fauci said handshakes should maybe go away. >> i think i threw that out there to get people to start

4:38 am
>> so, culturally speaking, the handshake dates back to the 5th century. you used to shake hands to show you don't have a weapon. >> reporter: are you shaking hands? >> i'm shaking hands to anybody, because i've been vaccinated >> reporter: while some about stick to the first bump, some americans are ready to hug it out. so while some want to hug, others will show up to the office dressed like this we just have to give each other a lot of slack over the next year when we go back to work that's my office back there. i'm not allowed back in yet. even if your boss says wear a mask or your host does wear a mask don't elbow tap if you'll coughed into your elbow. be careful asking people about whether they've been vaccinated. shep, i'm not going to ask you it's none of my business >> not going to ask me what? >> reporter: if you've been vaccinated. >> yes >> reporter: it's not my business. >> yes, yes, i'm fully
