2:32 pm
a nother police officer has lost their life in an ambush. this time a young mother. where is the outrage? the loss of her life and the celebrities covering the cost of her final arrangements? not surprise, they are silent. but what is surprising is who the mayor is blaming for the debt of officer ela, french. and finally tonight, jeter invite the president obama. is that birthday bash at martha's vineyard? well, mine must have been lost in the mail as well, or maybe i'm just not sophisticated enough. we're going to disguise that policy involved in the a former president maskell a celebration. while the rest of the country is creeping back into a restricted state, much the resentment of many. i'm sky now. huge and you're watching new is huge, right here on our t america. let's get started. ah . we begin this evening with
2:33 pm
a shocking footage out of the u. k. where mobs of protestors were met with police barricades and the cons as they attempted to storm the b. b c's, a former studio in london. now the demonstrators approached the major media outlet, doorstep, all over their critiques of vaccine passports, and vaccine requirements for children, or she corresponded show, dia edwards da, she was there on the ground. well, i'm faxing, protest is all on a mission. today. they're taking the streets of london going from one media outlet to another. tried to be met with steve and dave protest really started the new i pod but hadn't got mission in their
2:34 pm
minds at that point. but they decided at that point to take the baby things to do to try to try it. so why the baby what they're all doing is 19 pads. i really oppose also what the baby and all the mainstream media outlets are proposed. the as well. they really get many, we pull that up as well. they would say for me to really take a huge role in the handling of the job, not to be upgraded. the way to freedom. many people, all freshmen but really the vibe today is point in time. they all had been that night, so really trying to come out today,
2:35 pm
they all due to be totally ridiculous and that's why we wrote our program is not going to see that without infringement of a freedom. and of course that will never have as well. so today it's just about what's going on in the future. reporting for hughes. i'm shot something now back here in america, a nother tv network is under fire for how they have covered the multiple sexual harassment scandals and devolving governor cuomo. now as we all know, new york governor cuomo, brother chris cuomo, is a well known primetime anchor at cnn. and over the weekend, chris, his colleague bryan shelter, defended how the network has handled the situation between the brothers. this has been a conundrum for cnn that has no perfect answer, no perfect solution. some think sienna made it worse by letting chris interview his
2:36 pm
brother when cobra 19 was ravaged in new york. but that was an unprecedented time period. and so is this one famous family in the news, a governor who soared to the highest tides last year, now fall into the lowest, most self inflicted wounds. and a brother who just wants to do his job, just one think or a show. but can he? that's the key question or the conundrum as bryan pointed. but how should networks cover situations when family members are the ones that are the star of the story? let's ask indicated congress and podcast host, reuben, of our reuben. thank you so much for joining me on this. got a great to be back with you. thanks. okay, so i just had to start off. i just kinda away from ground. what do you think this would be as big of an issue for chris cuomo if he had never crossed that line and brought his brother on the show? even though he, governor of new york, especially during the pandemic, highlighting him as many times as he did. i think that's one of the lines
2:37 pm
he crossed, certainly the fluff soft treatment during the pandemic extolling him really as a hero and a model of good behavior and good leadership. the other line though, that's just as important that chris cuomo crossed we now know, and he's mentioned in the a g. 's report was in advising the inner circle of his brother as to how to handle the story and handle the media. really, he gave his expert opinion about how to massage the media coverage and that's why he shouldn't across. well, and that's, i'm talking about, you know, obviously you have, there's ethical, there's unethical standards as a journalist. but this is also your also, the brother chris chloe, is very well known. he's obviously an expert in the journalism filled today, according to his standards. you know, how do you get around that? he was in an awkward position on that. if this was, i don't know if there's any laws that were broken. but do you think by chance of the ethical violation alone should be the reason why cnn possibly should put him on probation? he's, he's broken the ethical code for sure, but his boss, ultimately,
2:38 pm
jeff zocker, who is the president of cnn. he's not much of a journalist either. and so you have a non journalist supervising a nother non journalist as to journalism. so chris cuomo can really go as far as, as bosses all let him go. by this point, he's operating not as a journalist, but rather as a glorified flack for his brother. it's okay if a brother gives advice to a brother. when chris cuomo gave advice to andrew almost handlers to john and sallied all the folks around his brother, that was when he cross the line, he should no longer be on the air. he stop being a journalist, he's become an advocate. now, that's an interesting way. there is a difference between brothers just speaking of the family dinner table versus actually coming in and going to a strategy session that we now know actually happened between the 2. now we're going to continue to hear more accusations of harassment against governor cuomo. do you think it deserves this pushback is getting, considering and when you look at the coverage can and has done the story they are doing, they are covering the different allegations and they are actually not bring the
2:39 pm
women in any way that would make them look discredited. so do you think that they are handling this in the right way, making basically the best situation they can out of what they've been dealt. they're doing the best they can, scotty, after all this is a liberal media, cnn. they talk to a good game about protecting women during the, the cabin, all hearings saying, all women should be believed. and ultimately, you know, now we are having to sort of finesse that a little bit. do they really believe all women should be? be relieved when the believe when the person who's being accused of the democrat in summer or someone is part of the family. it's a tough place for seen and to be they much prefer the stories. when the bad guy, the person having the finger pointed him, is a republican white male, not a democrat. well, and like i said, i would be really easy for me to pile onto both brian and inform on cnn. i'm just not want to do. i have to look at this also being a member of a family and, and going, how should media outlets handle these types of situations? we talk about people when you have these kind of relationships within the news room
2:40 pm
within politics in this case. but how should a newsroom handle when you do have those tides as we so often find amongst a journalist versus a public official office, whether be by blood or by marriage? while sealants, right to the right thing. now telling chris cuomo you cannot talk about the story you after accuse yourself, you have to pull yourself back away from this story. the rest of networking cover the right, but you can't. the problem though is they still employ somebody who stopped acting as a journalist and began acting as an advocate and see it as a problem on the hands with regard to the long term employment of chris cuomo. well, you know, i find a very interest throughout the survey, the timing of all this. i always ask that question because these accusations from the women are nothing new, be heard about them even up to a year ago, they were starting to become public. they were rumored in new york around the past few years. anyways. it's the timing of this. why do you think this is actually starting to come out? now you're seeing the female attorney general there in new york going after me. obviously looking at criminal charges,
2:41 pm
possibly. why now would you speculate this is actually creating such a star i think because he's getting ready to run for what would be a 4th term as governor, because democrats themselves are trying to topple him. he's got a problem on his hand because his own party is going after him in new york, it's democrat versus democrat. there are no republicans to be found in a story. it's ultimately think that's part of it. also, he doesn't have a lot of friends. he's been rumored to be a bully, it's his reputation, it's a way to get things done. so he doesn't really have a strong base of support among the democratic party. so he's out there by himself. andrew cuomo, as doug himself is in a whole, and i think unfortunately, he's brought his brother in with him. but i find to be very interesting about this is the fact that not only as he dug itself in a hole, but he's actually standing very strongly in it, or other high powered officials all the way up even here to d. c. nancy pelosi calling for him. to resign and he still sticking to it. there is not even a hint of resignation coming out of his mouth. i find that to be very telling
2:42 pm
reuben, always a great time to talk to you. it was another a bloody weekend mystery of chicago as at least $47.00 people were shot, including the 1st police officer to be shot and killed since may or lori lightfoot took office. well, this latest as cause a mayor to take action to stop the violence. more to the story after the break. the news join me every thursday on the alex simon show, and i'll be speaking to guess in the world, the politics sport. business. i'm show business. i'll see you then, me look forward to talking to you all that technology should work for people. a robot must
2:43 pm
obey the orders given it by human beings, except when the short or conflict with the 1st law show your identification. we should be very careful about artificial intelligence. the point obviously is to create truck, rather than fear i would take on various jobs with artificial intelligence. real summoning with a robot must protect this phone existence with better survival. got going to start at the federal reserve shirt. so there are you don't get a back. oh, no, refrigeration came. well look at the rest, the 7 years. so what kind of report the
2:44 pm
gun violence has gone up in almost every major city, but one see that it makes the headlines every weekend chicago. now over the weekend, at least 66 people were shot. 8 of those people killed, including a chicago police officer shot in the line of duty, or saturday night traffic stop. r t fair in front brings us the details of that officer involved shooting, as well as the response for both mayor laurie lightfoot and the chicago p d. last night, at approximately 9 p. m. it's 63rd and bale officers assigned to the community safety team conducted a traffic stop on a vehicle with 3 occupants. and what those 3 officers were met with. they had no idea and offers were brought upon and they returned fire. one of our office was
2:45 pm
struck by one of the offenders bulletin sustained, a fatal gunshot wound and she's deceased. that officer 29 year old ela french joined the 4th and 2018 and was a member of the cities community safety team. she lives behind an infant daughter or partner a male officer was also struck and he is currently still in critical condition. fighting for his life. saturday night, chicago police officers prayed outside the university of chicago hospital for that officer, still in critical condition, as well as for french who was already pronounced dead. the police are not our enemies. they're human. just as we are chicago mer, laurie of lightfoot, who took office in 2019 met officers at the hospital where there are reports that officers gave lightfoot the cold shoulder as she approached them risking their
2:46 pm
lives every day for our safety and security. that reality became very real last night in an emergency room, monks tears, and fears. from the finest and most courageous people. i know lightfoot has been a controversial figure in the eyes of the chicago police back when she was inaugurated in 2019 as the city's 1st black woman and openly gay female mer. lightfoot vowed throughout her campaign to remove the chicago pd's gang database, implement civilian oversight of policing, and fully removed immigration and customs enforcement or ice agents in 2020, it was a different story. lightfoot, 2020 budget proposal gave a 7 percent increase to chicago's p. d. budget, but 6 months later, lightfoot responds to the killing of george floyd by minneapolis. police officer
2:47 pm
came under fire. along with her response to the coven 19 pandemic. lightfoot was accused of not prioritizing student safety by removing police officers from chicago public schools. but after various flip flopping on, the issue, lightfoot finally said she would not defend the police. a call made by black lives matter in the streets of chicago, which erupt. it in more protests calls from the chicago police to lightfoot to bring in the national guard for help. went on answered, i urge you, we must come together. we must unite. we have a common enemy. as the guns and the gangs 2021 in chicago has proven to be one of its deadliest years. and the 1st 7 months alone there been almost 2000 shootings and almost 2500 victims up 63 percent from 2 years ago. i'm asking chicago to wrap their arms around,
2:48 pm
are police officers today and encouraged him. the continued there are great work and protecting us all over the weekend, 66 people were shot were 8 victims, including officer french, died. the incident marks the 11th time a police officer has been shot in chicago and just 2021 alone. the 1st officer to die in the line of duty since flight for took office. and the 1st female chicago police officer to die in the line of duty since 1988 for news use hughes. i'm fair in france. back turning 60 is a really big deal, and it should be celebrated as well as a landing, a multi $1000000.00 pay day from a $2700.00 page legislative bill. but both come with a cost. now over the weekend, the president obama threw himself a star studded 16th birthday party. now the endless numbers of celebrities and
2:49 pm
friends joyfully celebrated all weekend long. even ending with a brunch with oprah on sunday. but what was told to the public after 1st disclosure last week was going to be a very down skilled event. the footage from the hawaiian thing. but lou well, out of the obama state on martha's vineyard, revealed not only the great dancing skills of the politician and his friends, but almost that most of them do not practice what they publicly preach. sore critics just party papers or is it rules for thee? but not for days. so to give us a 360 view, we welcome political commentator of iraq, laurie, and a former us assistant attorney david gets going to be with us. got it. david, i want to start with you. you know, i've had friends who have not been able to hold funerals post today, post on their weddings. my child actually back to school today with a mandated mask on his face, despite is 0 cases occurring at his school. i want you to go into what new york
2:50 pm
times reporter any carney had to say about the former president and his guest being caught without a mask at the party. other people said, you know, this is really being over on their fall and all the safety precautions people are going to sporting events that are bigger than this. this is going to be safe. this is a sophisticated vaccinated crowd, and this is just about optic. not about safety instigated vaccinated crowd. i've tell you those kind of not my favorite comment of the weekend. so i got to ask you on this, david, do you think this is important for the president to hold this weekend considering the environment and the situation that we are in? well, scotty, i think it was in poor taste and i think it was in poor political taste and optics . this is actually live to be 60 the party that marie antoinette dreamed holding. right. this was less than a cake is how it came through to a lot of people who as you say, haven't been able to do things socially. and you know, i mean in a bonus defense,
2:51 pm
you have to say he's not the president anymore. he hasn't been for 5 years bite and didn't come to lucy had the good sense not to come. and, you know, it looked like oprah and j. c. now i would say this about trump. these are the people wishes would come tomorrow. lago but won't, and they're the ones that he wishes with join and make memberships and clubs if they would. so there's a whole lot of hypocrisy to go around, scotty and i agree that you see on both sides of abroad. do you see the bigger picture of this? not just a part about safety at birthday, but do you think this is actually going to damage the effort being made? you think in regards the public, accepting the restrictions that we are seeing being put back into place? yes, got the i think it will and it should. you know, it's funny to, to think about the new standard that apparently applies. it's not only that you have to have a mask but also be vaccinated, but also now be sophisticated and that's important. ok so, so i, i mean,
2:52 pm
it seems to me that everyone is still required to wear mass even if they are vaccinated, but not according to the bama clan. that's because they're sophisticated. that's the important thing to, to understand. yes, it says a very bad message throughout our great land, and we need to fix that. we need to understand that vaccination. first of all, there are many questions regarding the vaccination, whether not contagious, still and so on, the mass don't work and so forth. and this only sends a message and titles regular people to simply say will look if it's good enough for obama and his clan, and 600 person party. well then, by golly, i should be able to send my kid to school without a mask. and what that worrying and having to be vaccinated and such, it's very simple. this is going to damage them greatly over the many coming months . well david, you're the one the brought up, so i gotta finish, you know, this part of it. asking you the footage that from that party is being deleted. and i think that the obama team realized damage control is going to have to be done. but do you think this will actually damage the public opinion of president obama?
2:53 pm
you said at 1st, we joke about jeff on don bud, could this bounce off brock be a fitting new nickname for the former president? well, i think the question is going to be whether by and his agenda or popular. obviously, obama was critically important to help buy and get the nomination, scotty, and also to win the election. but you know, what's going to happen in the mid term elections now is going to depend a lot on how bind is perceived as being a center that governing the country. and i think that's why the infrastructure bill that they're getting right now, the 900000000000 dollar bill, but 20 republican senators have the good sense to back because it's a compromise. i think that is going to affect the thinking about buying a lot for then people being irked by their party, the party came across as people acting like they were entitled like they were being privileged with all the talk about white privilege and every other kind of privilege here was something that hit the average american white or black or anything else. as people who acted elite, they acted entitled, and they acted like,
2:54 pm
you know, they can have a party while the rest of the country needs to tighten a belt, but they do need to wear mass and they do need to get vaccinated. they've been proven effective. scotty just today they showed you chance of being hospitalized or dying are point 01 percent. if you've been faxing it, everyone needs to get vaccinated. left reminder center. well david, you brought it out. so i've got to talk about the party and was going out to martha's vineyard while that was happening in d. c. lobbyists were beginning to put their champagne on ice with the possibility of putting $426000000.00 minimum from this infrastructure bill. you just reference, this is said it didn't occur. democrats have also just presented. this is what i find to be interesting. a $3.00 trillion dollars spending plan. on top of the $1.00 trillion dollar infrastructure infrastructure plan, the $1900000.00 covered bill and the $2.00 trillion $1.20 budget that has a lot of maps to add up. so i'm going to ask you the same question. i was sort of
2:55 pm
the brock that my husband asked me last week multiple times while we were at help. and when i was going, i want to buy something. where is the money going to come from? brock? it's not coming from us directly, that's for sure. it's going to be coming from printing money and that will lead to massive inflation. and where you're talking about buying things, i think there will be a panic by at this point for big staple items like refrigerators and ovens and dishwasher and so forth. simply because they know that everything's going to be increasing dramatically in price very soon. it's. it's irresponsible, what's been going on, this notion that we just throw literally millions of dollars of it. what did they really think? do they think? oh gosh, you know we're, i'm the 1st president to think about spending a lot of money to resolve all the problems. this was, he's not the 1st president, he's not the 1st leader to think about spending money, but somehow he's the genius that's going to come up with all the great solutions and resolve all the countries problems to, to the extent they have problems. this is going to do it, and that's,
2:56 pm
that's the shocker of it all. because we only know that it's going to be creating massive problems to say nothing of the unemployment benefits that he's created and the other be illegal. immigration problem that we have. these are massive problems that are going to hit us very hard, very well. and david uniform, president trump, came out as a result of the infrastructure bill. and so this is just the remake of the green new deal. and there is $21500000000.00 in it to create this new office of clean energy. so how do you feel about, do you think this is just a rehash of what bernie sanders and some of the other democrats, the more liberal progressive democrats have been pushing and do you think it will actually be effective? scotty, there are 2 different things, and trump was for infrastructure. he just never put together a coalition. he didn't concentrate and focus on it enough to actually push it through. but trump wanted to do something about infrastructure and what they're doing now with the 20 republican senators is a compromise. the progresses didn't get everything they wanted. in fact,
2:57 pm
they gave on a lot of issues. they're not increasing the amount of iris enforcement so they can get money from the super rich and from huge corporations. they're not having a bank that they were talking about having that was going to help with climate change projects. so the republicans got a lot and that's why republican centers are supporting this. the next problem is the 3 trillion dollar bill that the democrats want to do all by themselves by met conciliation. and that one per august, right. it could very much add to inflation. we have to be extremely careful about that 2nd bill that's coming through, but this 1st bill is going to happen. it's going to happen in about a week. the 2nd bill is the one that may really add to inflation. and we have to be careful because, you know, there are a lot of democratic voters who are hurt by inflation, right. there's retired people, people on fixed income, and that's that people buy needs to look out for it, make sure they both democratic a year and a half and not that they're being strangled by inflation. well, i find, i think it's really interesting. 20 republicans going along with it. i don't remember 20 democrats ever going with anything. republicans did gentlemen,
2:58 pm
thanks for joining us. and that's all the time we have for to show. but i promise is a conversation we want to continue to follow me on her as guardian hughes. make sure you download the tv app and like, always thanks for watching these. ah, i the i think is part of the mental health revolution. we increasingly freeze political claims the language of mental health became more common. so if you disagree with something i said on this program, you know, just say i just agree with you. i think you're wrong because of the following problems in your adventure logic. you say your micro grass mate, you say you triggered me. you said your heart be again from psychological way
2:59 pm
because news or psychological terms. and i guess an enormous problem for politics because it's almost impossible to have a discourse on that terrain. the self governance is more as further and further away from the day to day reality of people on planet earth, in particular, america, with its claims to have a government bind for the people. but if the fed is now completely controlled by wall street banks and they said it's not completely controlled by the m f which is a super national organization that serve the global us the recall then the idea of self sovereignty in america takes another huge quantum leap of subversion
3:00 pm
ah, ah, the soap headlines that are here on t and a big announcement coming out of new york and governor andrew cuomo announces he is quitting. i made allegations of sexual harassment. thereby falling victim to the very need to pause he himself claims to support and then a blow about cause the head of a charity that supports victims of sexual harassment. also quit vollings of pressure over her ties to andrew cuomo today about 60 years into the us post huge agent, orange and vietnam. herbicide proven to cause serious health issues among both the locals and the soldiers. one veteran tells us at the time amends are made. we
3:01 pm
really need to sit down and take a look and say was.
