7:02 pm
industries locked in a fight in a matter of hours, verizon and at&t were set to move forward with their big 5g rollout planned for tomorrow they say it will provide higher speed internet and better cell service. but now they will not turn on towers near 82 american airports, at least not tomorrow. it's a standoff with american airlines who warned of possible catastrophic disruptions ten executives sent a letter to the administration saying the nation's commerce will grind to a halt they warn that people and shipments will struggle to get to where they need to go they say 5g can disrupt a key instrument that planes use for navigation and landing, the radio altimeter.
7:03 pm
now, at&t and verizon say they'll give the faa more time to figure out how to make it work but they also pointed fingers at the agency for not getting it done they said, we urge them to do so in a timely manner president biden thanked the wireless companies today, saying the move will help avoid potentially devastating disruptions. in a moment, we'll hear from daniel elwell. but first, phil lebeau >> domestic airlines are going over the details of the agreement, and also the schedules and the fleets, the types of planes they fly, to make sure they don't encounter
7:04 pm
any problems and for some of the foreign airlines, they fly into the united states, some of them have already proactively canceled some of their flights into the u.s., because they were unsure what the agreement might be reached or when. so those schedules are to a certain extent paused. but that could change in the next day or two. >> what happens for people scheduled to fly tomorrow? >> well, the expectation is that the overwhelming majority of flights, really almost all of the flights, will take off as scheduled. i have not heard of any cancellations due to the 5g rollout. and the real concern is going to be when you have airports with bad weather or fog, where the radio altimeter is really necessary. the delay should avoid that problem. but this is one of the
7:05 pm
situations where they've kicked the can down the road a bit. >> phil, thank you the acting faa administrator, daniel elwell, thank you so much the wireless carriers really laid into the faa. they say they had two years to prepare and here we are. what happened? why wasn't the faa ready for this >> i'm not sure that the faa should get quite the commentary that they got from at&t. the fcc may have done a couple of years of analysis, but they're not required and they didn't do an analysis of aviation safety. it's just not in the process that's one thing that has to change going forward this will happen again they need to get the process locked down. faa over a year and a half ago wrote a letter and raised a flag
7:06 pm
about the concerns about 5g, but there needs to be a more robust process. >> 5g is widely used in europe no apparent problems at all. why and how is this different? >> i can't really speak to what europe has done -- >> except that it's working fine there. >> well, they also have a different buffer band than we have here. they're operating at different power levels these interference issues are all about proximity of stations anpermutations and telecom companies are not very forthcoming about their plans. it's a competitive thing it's really hard to gather that information in a way that the faa can act in a more timely
7:07 pm
manner than they currently do. i think the process needs to start earlier and be more transparent. >> doesn't this go all the way to the top of the faa, if we're telling the truth about it >> well, technically, there's quite a collection of technicians and engineers that look at these things there is no final authority that writes off or signs off on this. that's part of the issue faa found out about the plan for 5g and saw there could be an issue. it's just -- it's a process that needs to be more formalized and needs to start earlier that's for sure. >> earlier than a few hours before it starts daniel elwell, good of you to be here thank you. only in america. the white house warning a
7:08 pm
russian invasion of ukraine could be imminent. >> it's the choice of president putin and the russians to make, whether they're going to suffer severe economic consequences or not. >> as fears of war mount in europe, the secretary of state is set to meet face-to-face with the russian foreign minister friday in geneva the white house says he'll urge them to de-escalate. ahead of the meeting, the secretary is heading to ukraine to meet with the president there. and russian troops continuing to mass near the border. the senate will take the vote on a voting rights bill, even though it's doom ed the fail chuck schumer forged ahead with
7:09 pm
debate, even though democrats do not have the votes to pass it. >> the eyes of the nation will be watching what happens this week in the united states senate the american people deserve to see their senators go on record on whether they will support or oppose these bills. >> senators sinema and manchin oppose changing the filibuster rules. senate democrats say they're weighing a rule change for a talki talking filibuster that would force the republicans to hold the floor, and then the senate would be able to vote with 51 votes. the bill is unlikely to pass after major setbacks to president biden's agenda, and a dismal approval rating, nbc news
7:10 pm
reports the white house is planning a reset the latest polls show president biden's approval rating has dropped to 33% among u.s. adults and the gop has seen a boost take a look at this poll, you can see the percentage of americans who identify as or lean republican swung in the gop's favor over the course of the last year. the democrats' urgency to reset the president's image comes as he prepares to enter year two in office on thursday here's carol lee. >> this is really what the white house is saying is a communications reset administration officials have told us one of the things they're going to do is not have the president so public about his conversations with members of congress. not get in the weeds on negotiating and all the images we've seen of the president going to capitol hill, meeting
7:11 pm
with lawmakers to hash out the details of legislation instead, they say they're going to put the president in a position where he's talking directly to the american people. now, they don't know what this will look like, there's an agreement on that it needs to change, but they don't know if he will meet with americans more, traveling, meeting people at the white house obviously, there are covid reasons why that may be a little bit difficult for the president. but this is a recognition that things aren't going well, something needs to change, and that's his relationship in terms of negotiating with congress he will talk more directly to the american people. it's worth noting this is not new. this is an evergreen tactic, when things aren't going well,
7:12 pm
presidents tend to look around washington, say i'm done with you, enough of that, i'm going directly to the american people. the question is, whether or not this is something that is actually going to work. >> carol lee, we'll see. thank you. covid staffing shortages hitting front line workers hard. so one hospital in texas is leaning on some new tech for help we'll take you inside a virtual intensive care unit, saving lives. phones destroyed after a volcano erupts now a new warning about a different disaster they fear may be around the corner. and wall street's buzzing after a major acquisition move by microsoft what we know about the multi-billion dollar deal. it can all add up. kesimpta is a once-monthly at-home injection...

to allow a private group to fly a christian flag in front of city hall. the group arguing not allowing the flag to fly would amount to censoring religious message in a public forum pete williams joins us now with a breakdown. >> reporter: this is partly a factual question what is the flagpole the group suing the city says the city approves just about any request, flags of foreign countries, and groups in the city the city has said no only once, and that was to the christian flag but there's also a constitutional question about whether the city is right when it says that letting the christian flag fly on the city's flagpole would amount to a government endorsement of
7:47 pm
religion >> did you get a sense of the room >> i think a majority will say it's clear that the flagpole is a public forum, because of the laissez faire way the city has allowed flags. i think the justices will say the city got the law wrong, it would violate the separation of religion and state if it flew every day, but if you let it fly for just an hour, it's not an endorsement of religion. my prediction is the city will lose, and it will take much more control over the flag pole from now on. >> pete, thank you, sir.
