7:01 pm

7:02 pm
the u.s. economy added just 194,000 jobs last month. economists had expected gain of half a mil that said, the unemployment rate did drop to 4.8% with schools reopening and federal unemployment benefits ending, there had been optimism for job growth instead, the second month in a row with data well below economists predictions also the slowest monthly job growth this year, showing that the hole that the pandemic left is filling in much too slowly. jobs cratered in march and april of last year because of pandemic shutdowns. in the year and a half since then, jobs have slowly trickled in, regaining more than 17 million, but 5 million jobs have not come back. many of them because americans have been reluctant to rejoin the workforce. wages did grow a labor force participation rate dropped. despite this, president biden
7:03 pm
still touted today that the numbers show continued progress. >> today's report has the unemployment rate down to 4.8% a significant improvement from when i took office and a sign that our recovery is moving forward, even in the face of the covid pandemic >> for comparison, after the great recession of 2008, the jobless rate didn't get up to 4.8 or down to it, i guess, for six and a half years president biden and economists are also cautioning don't take the numbers at face value. they say there are more bright spots when you look under the hood cnbc's senior economic correspondent, steve liesman, has done just that the economists don't seem as worried as many people might expect, steve. >> it's a snapshot that only captures from mid august to mid september. there were storm disruptions and delta concerns were starting to's take some of the sting out of this
7:04 pm
july and august revised up by additional 169,000 jobs and there are indications that it's been better. hopefully we'll get enough to fill $5 million jobs >> where are the jobs, steve >> let me start with where they're not. we lost 180,000 jobs in public and private education. a lot of this is technical noise created by the pandemic. fewer teachers were fired during the summer, so there were fewer to hire come september we had good growth in the good sector, travel and retail. those numbers should improve as americans feel more comfortable venturing out. >> what does it say about unemployment benefits? they expired and yet >> we just don't know enough yet. this will show that studies that we want the benefits, they had
7:05 pm
stronger job growth, but that could have been because they had fewer covid cases. the benefits expire beginning of september. takes time to good work and good work just because benefits run out doesn't people people find a job right away there's a lot more to it, like childcare, for many parents. >> have a good weekend thank you. former president trump will not be able to use privilege to block evidence from the january 6 committee. the decision came from biden he's instructed the national archives that it must turn over internal trump administration records to that investigating committee. in a letter, the counscil writes these are unique circumstances -- provoked and fanned by those sworn to protect them executive privilege should not be used to shield from congress or the public. information that reflects a clear and apparent effort to
7:06 pm
subvert the constitution itself. mr. trump's former chief strategist, steve bannon, says he will not comply with the january 6 east committee subpoena and in the response, they are threatening to pursue charges against him. two former trump officials, mark meadows and cash patel are engaging with the committee, as they put it, according to the chairman former president trump is vowing to keep fighting against the release of the white house records. in statement, quote, they are trying once again to use congress to persecute their political opponents. their requests are not based on law or reality it's just a game to these politicians. let's bring in pete williams are we getting a set up for a legal battle to decide this, paid >> without question. here's why the courts have never said what authority a former president has to exert privilege
7:07 pm
what the supreme court said in 1977 in a lawsuit involving nixon is that when the incumbent president says material ought to be turned over, the weakens the former president's claim that it shouldn't be there are other things the supreme court has had before, that the privilege applies only to discussions about the president's official responsibility so you might well ask well, does talking about efforts to undercut confidence in the election count as something that's part of the president's official responsibilities. but because there's these questions are not 100% clear, yes, they're going to be litigated. the president will unkdoubtedly go to court and block this material from being turned over. >> i don't bannon's claim that he's protected by president trump's assertion of executive privilege. >> when his lawyer wrote that letter, he add asserted it at that point it's sort of an opening gamble it by his lawyer i think bannon's claims of
7:08 pm
course are predivorced from the president's. he was at one time an adviser, but not during this critical time i think he faces some potential exposure here. the committee is saying if people stiff them on the subpoena, they could vote to find those people in contempt and refer it to the u.s. attorney for potential prosecution. i think he'd better be careful >> thank you federal prosecutors have landed the first conviction tied to the brazen college admission scandal dubbed operation varsity blues. the jury today found two wealthy fathers guilty of paying bribes to get their children into top schools. john wilson, a private equity financer and gamall abdul, a former casino executive. they are the first to have fought the accusations in court. the charges here, aziz paid $300,000 to get his daughter into the university of southern california as a basketball recruit and wilson paid $1
7:09 pm
million to get his daughters into stanford and another 20 grand to get his son into usc. 48 of the 57 people charged in this sprawling scheme have pleaded guilty or agreed to. a handful are scheduled to go on trial next year. david, the longest sentence among those pleaded guilty in this was just nine months. a lot of critics have blasted that as a slap on the wrist, but now these two parents have been convicted and could get up to 20 years. how important is the sentencing going to be? >> i think it's very important, especially for the people who are going to see if they run the risk of going to trial we can be guilt of sin, the injury doesn't have to commit you, you to acquit you, you have to be relatable. >> then the coaches involved go on trial next month and more parents in january were you their attorneys, would
7:10 pm
you advise them to reconsider after what we just saw on these convictions? >> absolutely. and this isn't law, shep, this is common sense. you tell them look, whether or not you're making a good deal is based on a good deal 33 are doing a maximum of nine months these two are facing up to 20 years. they're not likely to get that, but yes, you should reassess >> this happened really fast this jury wasn't messing around. were you surprised by any of this >> no because it's a hard sell it's not surprising that people who thought they could buy their way into top schools thought they could buy their way of prosecution. when the jury comes back this fast with guilt verdicts on every count, that sends a message you should have been able to foretell before it hit you. >> have a good weekend thank you. an 18-year-old accused of opening fire at school in arlington, texas two days ago is
7:11 pm
out of jail. his family says he's back home after being let out on bond yesterday. the release comes as the family of one of the victims says he's fighting for his life. they say he's in a medically induced coma now and was set to get two more surgeries today they say four bullets hit him. one in the stomach, chest, arm and leg. we're also getting video that police may show how it all started. i should warn you, the video is disturbing police say they believe this fight happened just before the shooting they also say they believe the shooter is the student you see here in the white shirt. the suspect's family says he was bullied. and they aren't saying this justifies the shooting or anything like that instead, they're saying he was defending himself. >> he was robbed it was reported. it happened not just once. it happened twice. he was scared. he was afraid. there's a video that's all out
7:12 pm
on social media and it shows that he was being attacked >> his grandmother told her nbc station she thinks the suspect's family is trying to make it sound like he's the victim, but she says the victim is her grandson school board meetings. they're the front line now in the war on masks we're on the ground in a community severely divided over mandates the ruling by a federal judge that has students on both side of the argument fired up some doctors are now being accused of giving kids bogus waivers to skirt the rules on face coverings the reports that have officials investigate. plus, it will be one of the last acts of mayor deblasio in new york city. it's a huge change for city schools that has some parents furious.

7:14 pm
in favor of some parents who filed a lawsuit. that's not the case in knox county, tennessee, where a federal judge ruled that students will be required to wear a mask while in class that move reverses the decision of a school board. it previously made masks optional this ruling is divides the community. some parents and students applauding the judge's decision while others say look, enough is enough in knoxville, here's cal perry >> it's really the back and forth, the switching of the policies that has so many upset.
7:15 pm
we're seeing the pouring out of emotions now at these school board meetings i was at a meeting on wednesday where more than 60 people signed up to speak about masks even though it wasn't on the agenda one of these speakers talks specifically about what he's going through when he goes to school and refuse to wear his mask because of the rules, the school is separating out those stupts >> my greatest concern is that mie right to an education has gone out the window. i have sat in the isolation roo with zero instruction and no work on campus friday will be my last day as a kcs student. i believe i have the right to a publi public education just as much as any other student in knox county, but i don't see anyone standing up for me or these other students. >> some students want to be wearing masks and want everyone around them to wear masks. we now have parents protesting
7:16 pm
outside of some of the schools at least one student says she feels threatened by those protests >> they hold up signs like good little sheep they are comparing us to animals that are simple minded in our face, every day, whether you are pro mask or anti which is frustrating because i just want to have a peaceful day at school and not have to worry about my state of the. >> for the protester's part, they say they're peaceful and get out of the way of any student trying to get to the school, but it goes to show you what a divisive issue this is, what a difficult time this is for people here in eastern tennessee and this is a school dirt district with 59,000 students >> thank you there's one thing nearly every american can agree on, misnm misinformation is a problem. according to a new poll from the pearson institute and associated press, 95% of americans
7:17 pm
recognize and 95% say they hold social media for spreading this. when it comes to covid, some are accusing doctors of pushing this information. in michigan, the detroit free press reports today the state is looking into allegations that doctors disparaged vaccines and filed bogus waivers for kids to get out of wearing masks in schools. dave now, the reporter who wrote that story, dave, thanks you report that in cases, some cases a doctor in florida is writing a waiver for kids in michigan, which is obviously suspect. >> that's right. i talk today a private school administrator in metro detroit and he said five families turned in waivers and didn't give my medical reason they were all signed by the same doctor this was not an isolated incident he said there were almost 100 instances of waivers that he deemed kind of sketchy >> dave, beyond flagging these
7:18 pm
suspicious waivers, can the schools do anything practically speaking >> this administrator told me his hands were essentially tied. he cited the federal law that affords rights to people with disabilities he said if the school were to say these students, you know, couldn't have this waiver, they could be violating their rights. a federal court this work ruled that athletes at western michigan university should be allowed to have religious waivers to not get the vaccine and then determined those waivers for invalid. >> from your reporting, if a doctor is found to be filing a fraudulent waiver or lying, do those doctors face consequences? >> they do the process in michigan is a little opaque, but if one of these licensing boards determines that a medical professional has violated the public health code, their licenses could be suspended or
7:19 pm
prevented. >> dave, thank you california has a new rule. it's now against the law to remove a condom during sex without permission from the sex partner. that's known as stealthing the new law denies, or defines it as sexual battery and that gives victims the ability to sue for damages. in a study two years ago, 12% of woman say they've been a victim of stealthing. in another study found that 10% of men admit they've done it similar bills on stealthing have been introduced in new york and wisconsin, but neither has passed the assemblywoman who wrote it, christina garcia, she said in a statement that i urge other states to follow california's direction and make it clear that stealthing is not just immoral but illegal. apple introducing plans to build a new regional headquarters and the location suggests the
