active consideration. >> i do believe that the work of this committee in order to retain the confidence of the american people must act in a way that has no partisanship. our select committee will seek the truth. >> this riot was absolutely devastating to the perception of democracy in this united states. let me say, nothing is off limits. we'll follow the facts. american olympic athletes find the medal stand but covid forces more to drop out. >> i'm pamela brown in washington. you are live in the cnn newsroom on this sunday evening. and the rise in covid-19 cases are casting a shadow of fear and frustration around much of the world. in the united states, the public's willingness to get a vaccine is waning, adding more
fuel to what the cdc calls the pandemic of the unvaccinated. nearly every state is seeing more covid-19 cases compared to the week before. less than half the country is fully vaccinated, meaning the game changed in herd immunity is still out of reach. and there is a projected worst case scenario of 4,000 deaths in the u.s. if vaccination rates don't improve. dr. anthony fauci telling cnn, that revising guideline for vaccinated people is under active consideration. in arkansas, the state with the third lowest vaccinate rate, health officials say there were more than 1,000 new cases just yesterday. today, republican governor asa hutchison tweeted a plea for people to get vaccinated. saying he can only imagine the strain on the state's health care workers. we don't have to imagine. one arkansas hospital posted one. its own doctors sharing what is
actually happening as the delta variant cuts through his community. >> what i really wish you could see is to look into the eyes of a young father or a gentleman who knows that they may be short for this world because they didn't get their vaccine. and the regret and remorse on their face and fear. >> the doctor painting that heart breaking picture. dr. michael bolding joins me now. dr. bolding, first of all, thank you for all you've done throughout the pandemic. here we are with surging cases. you in arkansas. you and the other doctors and nurses are incredible.
we know this is the pandemic of the unvaccinated. tell us what you're seeing, what you're hearing every day as you tend to these patients. >> well, thank you for having me. i definitely represent thousands of very tired health care workers. i literally just came from a patient's room in his 20s and it took six people to get him in a prone position on the ventilator, and we are seeing 20 and 30-year-olds dying now from a preventible illness. and it is heart breaking. we are seeing, you know, you can't be too healthy for this virus. we are seeing people that cross-fit on tuesday and are on a ventilator on friday. i can't get the word out enough of what we're seeing back here in these units. >> to be clear, that is so sad. the room of a 20
something-year-old. is this person unvaccinated and have covid? just want to be clear. >> yes. unvaccinated, has covid, and no pre-existing conditions. >> wow! and to the extent you can talk to some of these people, what do they say to you in terms of regret? do they talk about the misinformation that led them to not get the vaccine? what are you hearing from them directly? >> that's absolutely right. i think we get a little jaded in health care sometimes when we see some of the very loud vocal minority that are absolutely anti-vaccine. and what i have found out since publishing this video, i have had dozens of people personally, and hundreds throughout our hospital ask now about the vaccine. i think there are more people on the fence and kind of in a gray area that have appropriate questions. i think that's why you've seen
our vaccine rate go up in arkansas in the last week. because people are asking appropriate questions and we're trying to get the message out there. but i see someone daily for the last three weeks that is possibly dying, certainly very sick, that asks if they can get their vaccine. and it is heart-breaking to tell them that that time has passed. that that was five to six weeks ago, to prevent this. >> and then in some cases they die. >> yes, ma'am. and that is heart breaking. i grew up in rural america. i'm, you know, i'm watching this kind of disparity between the unvaccinated and the increased mortality of our state and states similar to ours. and i can't scream it enough.
these are my people. and they're dying. and it's tragic. and it is very much a case of misinformation. >> and where do you think it is coming from? from what you've experienced, the misinformation, the way you are battling that misinformation every day. you know, you are the trusted health source. and yet people are still getting their information from vaccine skeptics, people pushing vaccine hesitancy. what are you hearing on that front? >> i can certainly tell you, it is not coming from people who have actually seen the pain and suffering that covid causes. you will not find a physician or nurse on these covid units that has seen this tell you not to get your vaccine. i don't know what the agenda is for some people. i think we do know for some others. all i can tell you is that we have been fighting a war against this virus. this is a battle.
and i think we're a little late to the misinformation battle. and that's what i'm trying on get out there now. unfortunately, with what we've been through on these covid unitses, that's plenty battle enough. but we have to fight the misinformation battle. whether -- social media is certainly a big one. >> sorry. we just lost you for a second. you said you have to battle misinformation. say that again? where that's coming from? >> we're seeing certainly misinformation on social media. those are not coming from doctors that are working in covid units. i can guarantee you that. so let's take battle there. i wish we didn't have to do that. but that looks like a battle we're going to have to fight i know what this virus. >> yeah. you're literally battling two
viruses. covid-19 and the misinformation virus and you're seeing people show up at your hospital, sick as can be. almost on their death bed, asking for the vaccine. you're having to tell them it is too late. some of these people are dying. you're having to tell their family members. how do you cope? >> that's a fair question. i think we all cope in our own ways. i certainly have a very good support system at home with my wife and my kids. and she has encouraged me to go on shows like this and get the message out there. she of all people has seen the pain and suffering, at least that i bring home. but i think we're all coping in our own ways. seeing our vaccination rate go up. and we've certainly had some wins and some young people that
have survived this thing and gotten out of the hospital. and i think that probably gets us through the day. >> and you make a really important point. the family members of the health care worker on the front line, they're also carrying so much weight. so thank you to your wife and all your family members. last question for you. there is a life saving tool to end this pandemic. how shocked are you that we are where we are, especially in your state, where you are right now in arkansas. >> extremely. we saw a light at the end of the tunnel. we all in health care did this for almost a 84 without a vaccine and put our lives on the risk, at risk daily. and there were health care workers that died before they were able to get their vaccine. and when we saw that, and the vaccine was available, it was absolutely a miracle. and we all got in line and got our vaccines. and then they opened it up to 65 and up and co-morbidity
conditions. when we saw that number stop at under 40% in the general population, when it was available to everyone, it was shocking. you know, you go to your doctor and you ask, what is the treatment for this illness, and they say this is it. and we're all saying, it is the vaccine. it's prevention. it's not coming on the covid unit. whatever we can do for you there, which we're doing our best, but we all know the vaccine is the way to not get sick from covid. and it is heart breaking to see. >> oh! just listening to you, dr. michael bolding, gosh, i just can't believe what you have to go through. you're just trying to desperately get this message out. look, people, if you get had vaccine, you'll save your life. i won't have to treat you. thank you for telling your story. it is so important to hear from doctors like you on the front
line. >> thank you. >> joining me now, the democratic governor of kentucky, andy bashir. you were listening to that. i want to get your reaction to what the doctor just told me with the dire situation in his hospital. >> well, dr. bolding is incredible. he's one of our health care heroes. if i could tell him two things. number one, thank you. you're right. for 15, 13 months, they walked into covid units without a vaccine knowing they could contract the virus and take it home to their families. that bravery is incredible. the second thing i would say is don't burn out. we need you too much. even with the setback we're dealing with right now. we need your help. you all have been the very best of us. the very best of us during this crisis, during this pandemic.
we need you to help get us through. my goodness. whether it is there in arkansas, or all our health care heroes in kentucky. we owe you a huge debt of gratitude. >> we certainly do. and you're not ruling out a future mask mandate. you said you will rely on science to decide if it is needed. what will be the tipping point for that decision? >> where we are right now, we have some very strong recommendations. stronger than in most states. number one, all unvaccinated individuals should be wearing a mask when they're outside their homes and indoors. the delta variant is serious. it can be deadly to those unvaccinated. you ought to wear one to protect yourself and those around you. number two. if you're immuno compromised or you have one of these pre-existing conditions that covid comes for, you ought to put that mask back on. number three, if you work in hospitality, restaurant, retail,
where you're just seeing hundreds of people each day. your chances because of all those interactions go up. even if you are vaccinated, we strongly recommend that you wear a mask. we're looking at a number of different factor. first there are the cases. that's concerning. second, there is the hospitalizations. those that end up on a ventilator, which we don't want to see. and then there is even the breakdown of the vaccinated versus unvaccinated. and how many breakthrough or reinfection cases that we're seeing. thankfully, i have a great team of scientists, doctors, strong public health, strong hospital systems. we listen. we'll have the courage to do what's necessary but it is really cheer where we are right now. there is one and only one answer. get vaccinated. it protects you from the most aggressive form of covid that we have ever seen. it provides you huge protection. this isn't just me. i didn't just get vaccinated.
i brought me wife brittney who i love more than life itself. when my son turned 12 about, two months ago. we took him the day after his birthday. i would never stand next to those two individuals if i didn't know these vaccines were safe. please get vaccinate. get your family vaccinated. at the point we are right now, i know people won't just take my word for it. we need friends stepping up and talking on their friends who are unvaccinated. you want those people to be around at the next holiday. you want to have them over to your house. we want to be back to normal. this is the point where if you really care about someone and you know they're unvaccinated, i need you to talk to them. it will be uncomfortable. it won't be easy but it is their life and their way of life that is at risk. >> you mentioned your son. i know you have two children. school age children. school will be opening up in no
time, frankly, in kentucky. it is right around the corner. do you think that schools should require masks for the kids? because so many of these kids will be unvaccinated. and we know what can happen. >> so we're going to be providing some recommendations for our school systems tomorrow. let me say this. i have a 12-year-old son who is vaccinated. i have an 11-year-old who is unvaccinated. my daughter will be wearing a mask when she goes to school. and that is for her own safety. but let's just look at the basic science. if could you do the basic math. an entire class of unvaccinated children isn't going to make it through school year in person every day. so we'll have to step back as parents and decide what we care about the most. is it truly that our kids are in class where they need to be every single day? or is it an argument that parents want to have with parents about masks?
are we going to put our kids first? or make sure that they can stay in the classroom? or make this a red or a blue or a democrat or republican or some culture war thing? honestly, let's just make sure our kids can get the best experience they can when their education is at stake. >> all right. andy beshear from my home state. thank you for coming on. >> thank you. we're proud of you. >> thank you. i'll be home in kentucky soon. >> we look forward to it. still to come, after a rocky start, a gold rush for team usa in tokyo. wil ripley is live in tokyo. first, adam kinsinger officially appointed to the panel. the assault on the capitol was the closest he had come to combat in 15 years. i'll ask him if he thinks his

this week the house select committee looking into the january 6th insurrection has its hearing. house speaker nancy pelosi rejected two picks from kevin mccarthy. then he pulled the plug on all the members he appointed. today, nancy pelosi has chosen adam kinzinger to the committee. nice to see you, congressman, thanks for coming on. the panel will have kinzinger and liz cheney. do you support these choices? >> do i. this is a good example of country over party. liz and adam, i don't agree with them almost 90% of the time but we do agree on one thing. we want to preserve our democracy. what happened january 6th is a
great sin against our democracy and we want to get to the bottom of how it happen. they are very brave and we should commend them for that. >> in her dear colleague letter, pelosi wrote, now we must find the truth. we must do so in a way that the american people will have the confidence in the truth that emerges. how do you get that trust when the gop at large isn't buying in? >> well, look. we have to worry about trying to get the american public to buy in. we may not have the gop party am rat us. we may not have the trump loyalists but there's a segment of the public that is deeply traumatized by what happened and they want to know what happened. at the end of the day, the american public doesn't care who really is on this committee as long as they feel they'll be even handed. the fact that you have people like mccarthy trying to put these two other people on there, it would be like trying to get the watergate break-in people
into the committee. that's not how we get to the bottom of what happened. >> and the others also voted to decertify the election results. she just chose those two. pelosi rejected jim banks for a number of reasons, and jim jordan as well. today, jim banks told fox news that pelosi only wants committee members other will stick to her narrative. what do you think? couldn't the panel gain more credibility by having a republican who isn't a donald trump critic? >> i think there was an approach to this. speaker pelosi second three other members that also voted to decertify the election who were very good republicans in standing. what she didn't want to add is two republicans that were just going to be distractions. so just bring the clowns to the
clown show. they want to get to the truth of what happened on january 6th. kevin mccarthy did this on purpose. he put two of the most controversial on the panel. he had the option prior to this, by the way, he had another option where he would have equal opportunity to actually appoint people and they refused to compromise on that so this is just another distraction. another game they're playing to appease trump at the end of the day. >> i want to switch gears. this actually does tie in in a way that this quote/unquote audit happening in your state right now is all about questioning the legitimacy of the presidential election results. even after what we saw there on january 6th, the effort to cast doubt on the election results continues in your state. are you concerned this has the potential to incite more violence? >> i certainly do. what happened on january 6th was built up, starting on election night. and you hear general flynn talking about violence against
people in washington, d.c. you've seen the rhetoric increase about how this is an election that was stolen all the way leading up to january 6th and beyond that. and this so-called audit, we call it a fraud-it here in arizona. a sham audit, to be clear. it is designed to basically give more excuses to the republican -- sorry, the trump party, to come up with excuses for them to continue their lies and continue to fundraise off people. donald trump has raised $75 million. $75 million, supposedly to audit the election. he has spent zero dollars in arizona to help this audit. as a matter of fact, taxpayers have picked up more than $6 million of cost because of this sham audit. so this is just going to be continuing to basically do two things. number one, create more chaos and more violence. and number two, put more money into the coffers of people like donald trump and other republican grifters using this
as a way to raise money. >> all right. thank you for coming on, sharing your perspective. >> thank you, pamela. and be sure to join wolf blitzer for our special coverage of the january 6th elect committee beginning tuesday morning right here on cnn. there is another notable conservative who is now come out in full throated support of vaccinations. sarah sanders, the former trump white house secretary. in theory, that sounds like a step in the right direction. it is but there is a catch. in an op ed, she said she had a hard time making the decisions to get vaccinated and she thinks she knows why others are vaccine hesitant, too. she's blaming, wait for it, dr. anthony fauci and other scientists. the media, president joe biden, and vice president kamala harris. she says they all painted
operation warp speed as unsafe. by the time the vaccines came out, the damage was done. she writes, quote, if president biden, vice president harris and others on the left truly care about increasing the vaccination rate and saving lives, they should admit they were wrong to cast doubt on operation warp speed and give president trump and his team the credit they are due for the development of a safe and effective vaccine in record time. now, there has been criticism, that is fair, against president biden, or critics have said, they should have been more forth coming the give credit to operation warp speed. but the first part of her op ed puts the blame elsewhere. on dr. fauci, scientists, president biden. and this certainly takes us back to the days of her gas lighting in the white house briefing room when she would actually show up at the podium. for the record, then president trump was the covid down-player in chief. let's not forget that. if we were to follow his logic often on display to his own
supporters, why should anyone get vaccine as the virus isn't that bad, as he tried to say all the time. that same logic continues today via right wing media and politicians. so blasting people on the left for low vaccination rates amounts to a convenience excuse as to why she was following lead of trump and other republicans, saying largely silent about the fact that these vaccines work and save lives. sarah sanders has had months and months to push the vaccine but she hasn't. a search of her twitter account yields exactly one result containing the word vaccine. it is just a link to her op ed. and she's writing this now as she's running for governor of arkansas. where only 36% of the state is fully vaccinated. and it is becoming a big problem she can no longer ignore. arkansas's fight against new cases is rising to levels not seen since the winter surge. it now has the highest rate of growth in new cases per capita in the nation. it is worth noting that sanders
said she got her shot a few months ago. it does make you wonder where arkansas would be if she had chosen to speak up then. aj) because as a fiduciary, it's our responsibility to always put clients first.

it has been a month since the shocking collapse of the champlain south building in south florida. tonight, they are honoring those who perished and consoling those who mourn them. a special couldn't certain right near surfside. so tell me what's happening right now. >> reporter: yeah. the memorial near surfside wrapped up a few moments ago.
we're only a few blocks away from where the tower came crashing down a month ago. we're facing the skyline where that building once stood prominently and now it is no longer here. a very emotional and solemn night. i saw tears in the crowd as the names of the 97 people that have been confirmed dead were read aloud. there were hymns and speeches as the community takes an early step reflecting on what happened and seeking closure and to help us reflect as someone who has been here from day one and someone who has, i imagine, gotten very little rest since the collapse. with us, the mayor of surfside. we appreciate you sharing some time with us. first, i would ask that you help us reflect on the significance of this evening and what it means to see the community come together like this. >> well, we're trying to normalize. to get back to some sense of norm
normalcy for the residents. there's no normalizing for them. this is unfolding and we need to just focus on being there for them. as i said from the beginning. the number up with priority was to get people out and the second was to support the families. and that is not going to stop it all. that will intensify now. >> and you were telling me a few moments ago before we went live, that that is still ongoing. there are still families waiting for answers. there are currently investigators looking at the debris, searching for remains and there are still people who are displaced because of this. bring us up to speed on that process of getting everyone back to a relative kind of normal. >> well, with respect to the investigation, we removed all the debris, 99% of it, over to a secure site. that is being gone through with a fine tooth comb now. we've got people's lives in that debris. things as small as diamond rings. i was talking to a family member
who told me, her daughter was, who was just married in january had two rings and described them in great detail. so all of those things have to be found. they have no closure yet. this is a long process. it is painful. they asked about the psychological support. we have psychological teams here. we're just getting started, really. >> and part of that process is getting answers about how this could have happened. i understand there are questions about the direction of the investigation. what is the latest? >> well, the latest is we're now trying to determine how that investigation will proceed. you know, this year, they work in terms of years west don't have the luxury of that time. we have to work in terms of days and weeks. wave building that was built by the same developer with the same plan, substantially, probably with the same contractor, probably with the same materials. and is identical in most respects. now, that's a problem.
and we need to find out why that building fell down like today. okay? it has to be all hands on deck. and that's what we're working toward. i spoke to the mayor today about it. we have a couple of competing interests here. because obviously, we need to preserve the evidence. we've also got to get into that site. dig in and find out why that building came down. so that's where we're going and that's the focus. i think we're making good progress on that. >> mayor, again, it is unfortunate that we met under these circumstances but we appreciate your time and perspective. if there's anything we can do to help the community, please don't hesitate to reach out. >> appreciate your prayers. thank you. >> and i want to leave you quickly with the lyrics from the last song that was sung tonight. it is called heal us now. it was sung in both hebrew and english. sea side being an area with a large jewish community and some of those lyrics, we pray for healing of the soul. we pray to once again be whole.

to its ingredients or to a previous dose. an increased risk of guillain-barré syndrome was observed after vaccination with shingrix. the most common side effects are pain, redness, and swelling at the injection site, muscle pain, tiredness, headache, shivering, fever, and upset stomach. talk to your pharmacist or doctor about protecting yourself with shingrix. shingles doesn't care. but we do. day three of the olympics is underway in tokyo. the american swim team looking to extend its medals streak after a dominant performance yesterday put the u.s. in medal contention with china. but the coronavirus continues to cast a shadow. today two of the world's top golfers were forced to exit after testing positive for the virus. organizers stay total number of cases related to the games is now around 140. cnn's wil rimley joins me from
tokyo. for one of those golfers, jon rahm, this is his second positive covid test in a number of months. he was taken off the green a few months ago at a tournament and there again at the olympics he tested positive. >> reporter: it was the memorial tournament in june when he tested positive, and he thought coming into the olympics, he was in good shape with antibodies. but we're seeing olympians who are vaccinated and who might have covid antibodies can still catch this highly contagious delta variant, although probably a more mild case. the numbers are pretty low when you think about the factors. more than 11,000 athletes here. so you have a few dozen positive cases. they're testing them every day trying to keep it under control even as the number in greater japan continue to get bigger and bigger. >> and i understand there was some confusion in the women's cycling race yesterday. what happened? >> reporter: you know how you have those really awkward cringe worthy moments where you're like, oh! that's what happened to the
dutch cyclist ana. she's crossing the finish line. she doesn't realize that the actual winner is so far ahead of her that she didn't see her. so when she crosses, she thinks she won gold. and she's like throwing her hands in the air. she's celebrating like a champion would do. and somebody had to come over and tap her on the shoulder and say, actually, you're the silver medallist. congratulations. the real gold medal winner was from austria. the first ever since 1996. so she was so far ahead of her that the silver medallist won the gold. oh, man. that's rough. the silver is still pretty good. that's still worth celebrating over. >> absolutely. there is a silver lining literally in this case. >> there you go. a good one. all right. thank you.

sitcoms? early on family life and then the focus. why is that? >> you have to look at the history of america at the same time as history of the sitcom and we saw a shift in the way people interact with their co-workers. we had a lot of flu collar workers as we do today but america started to move into a white collar culture, you start to spend more time with your co-workers. you weren't in a loud factory. you weren't on a line of people trying to figure stuff out in a loud environment and all of a sudden, you're able to have a conversation in the coffee room. able to go to lunch with them. able to talk in a cubical next to them. we spend more time with co-workers than loved ones at home and we started to see that redpflected in the sitcom. >> if you never work in an office or taxi company or white house, chances are you can
identify with how these places are portrayed. what makes work sitcoms so relatable? >> sitcoms are about relationships and that takes place at home. that takes place amongst a group of friends. that takes place at work. so as long as you're able to interact with people and share their dynamics on camera, people are going to find ways to relate to that. so you're going to find that person in your environment that you're relating with and you have a kindered spirit with at home at work or a group of friends, as i said. as long as these universal themes are being explored, we'll laugh at them. >> so one of the biggest demographic shifts, the rise of women in the work force was depict in a number of sitcoms over the years. what did those sitcoms show us? >> it was representation is important and so you look at something like mary tyler moore and i look at marryy tyler moor
herself. she played an american housewife. wearing pants was progressive and she went from that to being on the mary tyler moore show, mary richards working, working as a single working woman and that was so progressive at the time and yet, at the end of the day, she made us laugh and that's all that mattered and so people are able to start to see more progressive story lines be told because it was done all through the guides of comedy. >> patrick gomez, thank you so much and the all new episode of the cnn original series "the history of the sitcom" area in just over an hour 9:00 p.m. eastern here on cnn, still to co come. >> a husband surprises his wife with their long lost wedding video.
