8:00 pm
the daily pace of vaccinations hit a new low. some republicans are beginning to see the light of vaccines. others are still pushing dangerous lies. the question is, how deadly has this misinformation become, fareed? >> it's difficult to exaggerate how disastrous the situation is, and how tragic it is, don. because here's the thing. most of the world, the vast majority of the world, is facing a pandemic for which they have very little control. even a place like india, which has a lot of pharmaceutical capacity, and the ability to make vaccines and drugs, is finding critical supply shortages that are hampering its efforts to vaccinate the population. in the united states, we have massive oversupply of vaccines. we have vaccines free for anyone who wants them, any age, any
8:01 pm
where you are. it's literally within one or two miles any where you are in the united states. if everybody were to get vaccinated, the whole pandemic in the united states wour over, finished, kaput. and yet, we are struggling like a country that doesn't have the vaccine. we have the tools to end the pandemic. we are choosing to live with it because one political party, one large media network and certain forces have decided to come together and to propagate a conspiracy theory that is probably the most damaging conspirery theory in human history. you think of the number of lives that are going to be lost because of the crazy conspiracy theories about the covid vaccine. i don't think there is any precedent. we have never seen anything like that it, and we have never seen
8:02 pm
as many lives directly related to the falsehood and my information. >> you said, what science has given, politics seems to be taking away. is this kind of political divide, when it comes to public health and misinformation, is this a knew sneakily american problem? >> yes. there is absolutely nowhere else in the world this is happening. look, you have vaccine he hesitancy, that is the word to use, and the result of that, is a smattering of people, and a m measles outbreak. once the government gets involved, people fall in line. you have a few scattered outbreaks here and there. but the american anti-vaxer movement, there is nothing like it in the world.
8:03 pm
first, it's incredibly widespread. it's been consciously fueled by a political party, by politicians, but media figures on the right. and it's having disastrous effects. and just now, they're beginning to -- this is -- we are now witnessing the january 6th moment for the pandemic. which is to say, you know, republicans and conservative talk radio and fox news have been feeding these falsehoods, fanning these flames, and summonly, they realize, they there are consequences it, and a few of them are seeing the late. and it may be too little, too late. >> listen, fareed. the des moines register said that iowa health officials may have to toss tens of thousands of vaccines. people just don't want them. so many countries would do anything for a tool to end this
8:04 pm
pandemic. but americans? americans are choosing to dive further into this mess. what -- >> we just witnessed the tragedy going on in haiti. political instability in haiti. they asked for american help. not one person in haiti, that i saw, has been vaccinated. we are throwing away 50,000, 70,000 vaccines in garbage dumps, and in the eastern hemisphere, not a single person has been vaccinated. >> fareed, you lost your mother when vaccines were scarce in india. it has to be infuriating what is happening in this country. what does your family say about in? and what do you think your mother would say to people
8:05 pm
refusing to be vaccinated? >> you know, i think that my mother was a great pro american. she had incredible faith in america. she always thought that america had all the answers. she used to quarrel with my dad who was a little more skeptical. this would break her heart. to see the united states, not to be 9 shining example in the world, saying this is how you get out of the pandemic, we did it. we are going to help you with know how, with technology. instead, we're floundering. we're going to go back. we're going backwards, and we're going to go -- it's going to get worse because the delta variant is twice as transmissible. you know, in a sense, we managed to get people vaccinated, assuming a certain pace of transmission. well, it's double, and we need
8:06 pm
to be acting twice as fast. and in fact, we are going backwards. no, it would break our heart. >> va fareed, we spoke of your mom and showed a beautiful picture. we're sorry, and glad to have you here to talk about it. >> always a pleasure, don. >> for more, you can watch fareed zakaria, gps, sunday at 10:00 a.m. and 1:00 a.m. and now to louisiana, now reporting the highest number of cases per capita than any start. with 36% of the population vaccinated, the governor had an important message just today. >> this is a storm that we can control. we're not powerless. we can be vaccinated. >> joining me now from my hometown of baton rouge is betty
8:07 pm
antoine. her son brandon refused to get vaccinated and died six days after contracting covid. betty, so sorry for your loss. >> thank you. >> why didn't your son get vaccinated in. >> he said not enough research had been done, and with that, he wasn't going to take it. >> betty. i got to be honest. i have family there in louisiana, and it heard the same thing. it infuriates me. it infuriates me. what is your message to people? >> that this is real. the virus is real. and the vaccine should will taken by everyone if you want to stay alive. my son was a home body person. he didn't get any place. he had his food delivered. he had his groceries delivered and very few friends. so somewhere down the line,
8:08 pm
somehow, he contracted the virus. so if he got the virus as -- that way, then i think people who are out in the world should get the vaccination. they should get the vaccination. >> and you had these conversations with him, right? >> yes, i yeah, i told him because of his under lying health conditions, i said he should be one of the fist ones to get the vaccination. he told me i should not get the vaccination either. but i want on because i had lung cancer, and i felt like i needed to take the vaccine. i needed to take that. but he did not want to take the vaccine. so he did not. >> you had lung cancer. what was your treatment? >> i went to -- the strangest thing, i was supposed to have back surgery done, and i had my
8:09 pm
preop test done, and they found out i had lung cancer, not kno knowing at all. so i went to md anderson and had my lower part of my right lung removed. had no chemo, no radiation in 2017. >> and you're doing okay? >> great, i'm doing well. >> you look fantastic, and you sound fantastic. my point was, it is science and medicine that got you through. you didn't have chemotherapy, but the surgery got you through it. listen, you knew that a vaccine could have saved your son's life, and you decided to hold a vaccination drive at his memorial service. why was it important to do it there? >> because when i went in and looked at any child, died there on the bed, i figured the only
8:10 pm
thing i could do to hon nor him is to ask his friends and my family to take the vaccine, and i held a memorial for him, and i have a friend who does vaccines for a hospital out here in baton rouge, and she set it up with her supervisor so people could come in and take the vaccine at the memorial service, and three people took the vaccine. >> so you got three people to do it. how long have you been in baton rouge? >> since 1976. >> okay. >> i'm from new rose, louisiana. >> new rose? >> oh, my family is from port al. >> i know them. >> you know my family? >> yes! and i know you also. >> oh! were you at my school? >> yeah, i was that lady who you came to lsu to make a speech, and you came by the school, and
8:11 pm
i met you. >> i remember. we heard about your story. and reached out. you reminded my team that we actually met before because you used to work on my old school, st. francis xavier school in baton rouge. was that that day you give me the st. francis xavier t-shirt, the dark blue with the light blue letters? >> that was the day. >> tell the story. i sat outside the office where i used to sit when i was in trouble and i had to speak with sister ann marie. >> we were having graduation, and you went tonight the church and you spoke to the students. so you came back out, and i said, oh, i need a picture of a celebrity, and this is the picture. >> oh, my gosh. yes. that's -- oh, my gosh.
8:12 pm
that's -- is that in the office? >> that's in the office. and guess what. you were been honored. i don't know if it does was canada or somewhere, and they called the school to get pictures of you. well, i was not there when you were going to school. so i had to hunt down some pictures, and i sent the pictures and, you asked, where did you get the pictures from? >> yeah, i was doing a show -- a talk show in canada, and i was like, where did you come up with those? will you send me some of the pictures? i have lost all the yearbooks, all the pictures, everything. do you veb remember the honarays? >> yeah, i went to school with russell. >> i went to school with tina and mona, and we have been best friends, and shihab trying -- she went to tony cease 's today
8:13 pm
to ship seafood to me. that is a long i story for another conversation. and i just want you -- if you give a message to folks out there, please, please? >> i may not in what i did -- i was doing it for my family, and friends. but if it reaches other people, not those who are die hards who will never get the vaccine, but those people who are straddling the fence, i hope this message makes them fall over on the right side, to get the vaccine. >> can we put -- if we have, can we put betty's son's picture back up please? his name is brandon, and he died -- how old was brandon? >> brandon was 46. he would have been 47th on
8:14 pm
august 22nd. >> betty, we're sorry, and you actually made a difference of a tragedy. you did something good by holding that drive, and you're speaking out to people now. let's hope they listen to you. sorry for your loss. thank you so much. you be well. >> thank you. >> we'll be right back. at carvana, we treat every customer like we would treat our own moms, with care and respect. to us, the little things are the big things. which is why we do everything in our power to make buying a car an unforgettable experience. happy birthday. thank you. we treat every customer like we would treat our own moms. because that's what they deserve.

8:17 pm
8:18 pm
so this is in nashville. something i want to show you. after years of demands, the bus of a confederate general and early kkk leader leaving the
8:19 pm
capitol building, sparking protest since it was installed in 1978. they agreed to move it to the tennessee state museum, just north of the state capitol, and a man stepped down after he threw out a racial slur in a city council meeting. ryan young has video of the meeting. what happened? >> yeah, good evening. this story has a lot of people talking across the country. they are surprised by the councilman making a gesture, the statement right in the middle of the meeting. there was an on going discussion about rational topics when it came to social media, and tommy bryant's wife had made claims on social media, and he stood up and made this statement. take a listen. >> do we have a house [ bleep ] in here?
8:20 pm
>> yeah. >> okay. >> do we? hey, do we? do we -- would she please stand up? >> the council meeting pretty much came to a stand still for a second. you can see veronica freeman started crying. that is who she is addressing. she stands up and she walks away from the table. bryant says he's just repeating what the mayor had said in closed session, and that started another back and forth. people were concerned what that was about. mayor newton put out a statement said, they are trying to expose for saying something i did not say. all that was a political stunt they did, and did not go very well. tommy bryant is not backing down. he says he was not plan to resign. >> absolutely not. absolutely not. i my consider running for mayor
8:21 pm
next time because i did what needed to be done. it needed to be brought to light, what kind of a person the mayor is in the city. >> the mayor says the video speaks for itself. there are a lot of people in that community who still want to know exactly about what was said behind closed doors and talk about the moment caught on video. a lot of conversation about how they move forward as a chamber. they are calling for bryant to step down. at this point, it seems he is defiant. >> thank you so much. i appreciate that. now i want to bring in natasha alford. good evening to you. let's talk. bryant was asked point blank whether he's racist. and well, just listen to this. >> are you a racist? >> a racist? i guess according to what your definition of the world racist
8:22 pm
is. what the public's definition is, i might be a racist. but according to what a true meaning of what a racist is, absolutely not. >> okay, what is the true meaning of a racist? >> well, see, tommy bryant wants us to debate that, don. he wranlants to play a game as e don't know what racism is. this man is over 70 years old. he knows what racism is. and he is absolutely using politics and the ways that racism is such a -- you know, an igniter of conversation in our country, to his political advantage. using the "n" word just to be very clear is racist, and another thing that tommy bryant wants us to do is to debate whether black folks should use the "n" word. he immediately deflects to mayor
8:23 pm
newton and tried to put the blame on him for sparking the whole conversation. but he's been around long enough to know that it was absolutely demeaning and humiliating for him to call a fellow council woman a house "n" word. he did it do her face, and we saw the pain and humiliation. it's disgusting and an example of the time we live in. where politics in particular appeal to the extreme. think want extreme constituents to see they are unafraid to break social norms and think they they will score social points for doing so. >> he said he was repeating what the city's first black mayor said in a private meeting. the first black mayor denies that. and no matter what, it was not appropriate to do in that meeting, and you're chit, he should have known better. thank you, natasha.
8:24 pm

so right now, i just want to show everyone. look how beautiful the white house is tonight. what a beautiful residence, right? all lit up in red, white and blue in support of team u.s. at the tokyo olympics. the white house says, the entire nation cheers on our team. these games will be like no other. no other games. taking place in the worldwide covid pandemic. my next games know all about the olympic games, nad ia comaneci and bart conner. a lot of people would say nadia comaneci. thank you both for joining us tonight. this is the first time you vntd
8:30 pm
been there in how many years? >> '45. from '76 to now, this is the first olympics that we haven't been there in person. we're like every other fan, watching from home. >> 45 years. y'all look great, i ain't going to lie. whatever you're taking, give it to me when we go to commercial break. >> i think the key is doing a hand stand every day, dan. >> would you say -- do a what every day? >> a hand stand is key. >> i'm so old, i did barely get out of bed with my back. >> you're younger than us. >> i know, i know. since 1976 that you guys -- what was this experience, if i can get my lips to work right. if what will this experience be like for the folks competing this year? >> first, it's one of a kind because when i think about the
8:31 pm
olympics, you will think about all the experience that the athletes have after they work out. you know, so many years, and they can't wait to be at the olympics. but when you think about what happened with the pandemic, it would have been worse. that's what i think. at least the athletes have a chance to pcompete. a big number of athletes can wait. a lot of them wanted to check the box last year when the olympics were supposed to be. and now, at least they are there and able to compete, and just -- that is their big dream. >> nadia, let me ask you, the u.s. women's gymnastics team, staying at a nearby hotel in lieu of an olympic village. the coach said it's a decision we all made together. we know it isn't ideal for the
8:32 pm
olympic experience, but nothing is ideal in a pandemic. we feel like we can control the athletes and our safety better in a hotel setting. aside from just the experience of this being wildly different, do you think everything going on can affect the athletes' 30 performance? >> i do respect the experience, and to tell you the truth, i have never been to the opening ceremony in my olympics. because the gymnastics starts the next day, and our coaches said they didn't feel it was right to be on our feet for 6 to 8 hours and compete the next day. so as you know, every olympics, the gymnastics is the next day. so many choose not to go. >> i think that are very smart. wise. that makes sense. bart, there are several young women on the u.s. gymnastics
8:33 pm
team we are keeping an eye on, simone biles defending the olympic all-around champion. what do you think of the team's chances? >> well, obviously, that is one of the locks of the u.s. olympics. the u.s. gymnastics team. they are that good. they come in with so much more difficulty in terms of skills than the other teams. they can even make some mistakes and still win it. being load by simone biles who is certainly the most dominant gymnast in the history of the sport, he has a chance to be the first all around athlete to repeat in the all around, and maybe win five olympic gold medals, the most of any gymnast ever. she's on the brink of history,
8:34 pm
and we're all just waiting to see how magnificently she does. when you think about the olympics and the pandemic and all the adversity the athletes are facing, i think 1976, there were boycotts of african nations. 1984, the big issue was traffic in july. 2016, pollution in china, 2012, it was terrorism in england and london, and in 2016, we were worried about the zika virus. so it seems to me the normal flow of media going in the games is doom and gloom, and the athletes and paralympic athletes save the days. they do things, michael phelps, nadia comaneci, carl lewis, they are the legacy of the olympics.
8:35 pm
i watch the opening ceremonies. it's mag knificent. these athletes are very resilient and i'm sure they will put on a magnificent show. >> i have to say that i am totally fan boying out right now. love both of you. i grow up watching both of you. you guys look amazing. again, and you know, bart, don't mess it up. or just -- >> hand stand a day. >> thank you, be well, and i hope you come back to see us soon. >> you too. >> ahead of the up coming football season, the nfl is pushing to get players and team staff members vaccinated but not everyone wants here. here is cnn's omar jimenez. >> reporter: as professional sports return to full capacity,
8:36 pm
so do fresh concerns over covid-19 driven by the delta variant. >> he's playing the drums in there. >> reporter: johnson bornsteen is a player for the chicago soccer team. he's played all over the world, every stints in the world cup for team usa. he couldn't wait to get the vaccine. >> i wanted to protect myself and the people around me. i was one of the very open people to follow what was going on, and when i got the opportunity to take advantage of it. >> not everyone peoples that way, as you know. the professional sports world. some had been reluctant to share where they stand. >> me being available to my teammates on the floor, taking care of my body, me doing everything i can to make sure i'm available, mentally, physically as well. >> do you mind me asking if you're confirming you did get the vaccine? >> it's not a big deal. >> and as the olympics begin in
8:37 pm
tokyo, notably without fans, several american athletes won't be there either after testing positive for covid-19, raising suspicions whether he was vaccinated. swimmer anthony martin said he wasn't. >> i don't want to risk anything. >> reporter: it is still possible to get covid post vaccine. but some still prefer the freedom of choice over a threat of health. buffalo bills wide receiver, tweeting, if you're squared of me, stay clear or get vaccinated. i my die of covid but i would rather die actually living. the nfl polly, vaccinated players get tested once every two week, and the unvaccinated gets tested every day, and the league told the teams, any covid
8:38 pm
outbreak would leave to the team's forfeit and loss if the game can't be made up. >> hi. >> across leagues, vaccination rates have climbed in recent months. the wnba has led the way announcing in late june, 99% of its athletes were fully vaccinated. major league soccer hopes to follow the trend. >> i think the most important thing is education. our team doctors with always available for questions we had for them. >> do you worry that somehow becausen in else isn't vaccinated, it will affect your health? >> a lot of guys are taking care of themselves on and off the field. so it's not been in my mind a lot lately. but the more you hear about the delta variant, it starts to creep back in. because a lot more people are starteding to get sick again. >> right after the nfl made the forfeit policy, some players took issue with it.
8:39 pm
saying it's pressure in the league to get vaccinated. hopkins tweeted and deleted that the possibility of hushrting hi team for not getting the vaccine made him question his future in the league, and with the first preseason game two weeks a i way, it's likely going to be a u up to the first snap. >> thank you very much, i appreciate it. misinformation spreads across social media, and now an inside look at facebook is telling us what they really think. stay with us. icy hot. ice works fast. heat makes it last. feel the power of contrast therapy,
8:40 pm
so you can rise from pain. after my dvt blood clot... i was uncertain... was another around the corner? or could things take a different turn? i wanted to help protect myself. my doctor recommended eliquis. eliquis is proven to treat and help prevent another dvt or pe blood clot. almost 98 percent of patients on eliquis didn't experience another. ...and eliquis has significantly less major bleeding than the standard treatment. eliquis is fda-approved and has both.
8:41 pm
don't stop eliquis unless your doctor tells you to. eliquis can cause serious and in rare cases fatal bleeding. don't take eliquis if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. if you had a spinal injection while on eliquis call your doctor right away if you have tingling, numbness, or muscle weakness. while taking eliquis, you may bruise more easily... and it may take longer than usual for bleeding to stop. seek immediate medical care for sudden signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising. eliquis may increase your bleeding risk if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures. what's around the corner could be worth waiting for. ask your doctor about eliquis. at philadelphia, we know what makes the perfect schmear of cream cheese. you need only the freshest milk and cream. that one! and the world's best, and possibly only, schmelier. philadelphia. schmear perfection.

8:43 pm
8:44 pm
facebook and social media taking a lot of heat for the spread of misinformation, and a new book is diving in facebook's history, and how little the company has done in stopping it. joining me now is sheera frankel. thank you so much. the title of your book reports to an internal facebook memo from 2016 that andrew bosworth wrote. maybe someone dies in a terrorist attack kocoordinated your tools. and still reconnect people. the ugly truth is that we still
8:45 pm
connect people, and anything that allows us to connect more people more often is defacto good. from 2016, facebook has done a lot, and has spoken to congress and has changed a lot of things in the way they operate. but what are you saying there? >> yeah, i mean, i think for a long time, facebook's motto was move fast and break things. and when they changed the motto, the mentality of growth at any cost really persisted. and that is something the reporting showed. every step, the problems happen on facebook's platform because they were focused on their growth. and metrics, how many times a day you log in your facebook page. how many hours you spend there, and if that is driving your decision making, getting people to log on, of course you have to show people really emotive
8:46 pm
things that get you to log in and get hours as a company. >> you said move fast and break things. that was the company's motto, and you said the attitude persists. do you think it still persists? >> you know, it's funny. i don't know if the detail made it in the book. but the wi-fi password for the company, if you're a guest there, is still movefast. so the engineers we spoke to. we spoke to 400 people, and the vast majority still work there, and engineers, policy people, lawyers, they all pfeel a sense that facebook is pushing for growth to be the north star. >> you don't think they feel the pressure, considering what happened in the past. 2016, that was the year trump was elected. and misinformation started really to skyrocket. you don't think they made a differencer o they have an alter
8:47 pm
call? >> i think our book shows they have really important changes. they will tell you they hired over 30,000 people in work in security. they know now a lot more about h misinformation and how to look for it. but until they change things about the algorithms, the problems will persist, and the news of the last week, the vaccine misinformation and how that persists on the platform. they care. they are so much upset about what happened in the 2016 elections, and what happened in myanmar, and where hate speech on facebook led to people being killed, and caring, and changing the company are two different things. >> i want to say this is a statement given to us from facebook, a facebook spokes person.
8:48 pm
there have been 367 books published on facebook, each claiming noefld insight into how we operate, but it seems this one is not only a rehash of history, but relies on supplied by mostly. >> the first one was 367 books written on facebook. they have to shift the language. that is not true. if you count facebook for dummies. but really, a handful of facebook and the inner workings of the company. and they know our book is different. they are anonymous because they still work there, and facebook did not allow them to speak was. they had to speak to us anonymously. >> the book again is an ugly truth. inside facebook's battle for domination. thanks.
