[000:00:00;00] a headlining this hour, a whistleblower report in the british medical journal claims. there was serious flaws in the testing of phases cobit vaccine. while u. s. authorities have been reluctant to investigate, the democrats suffer a surprising defeat. and a pivotal governance election in virginia have widely considered a major test for biden's presidency and a legal victory for big pharma, and potentially a disaster from millions, addicted to opioids and their families. a california court rules, the drug companies did not contribute to the state's epidemic of opioid abuse. we speak to one of the victims. here we are years later knowing what we know. and we're still unable to provide these families with, with some kind of justice. it's a travesty.
1:01 pm
ah! good, happy with this wednesday evening at 8 here in moscow. my name is colleen bry with you will use for multi international. first, the british medical journal has published a whistleblowers report, claiming that was serious flaws in pfizer coven vaccine trials last year. or the researcher behind the allegations says she was fired the same day. she raised her concerns and that us authorities refusing to investigate his ortiz, he goes off. so all these revelations, they have been published at the british medical journal, a very respected science paper, not some tabloid, that has a history or well is known for publishing some unverified information. and so that article it details the allegations of a whistle blow of a woman who used to be part used to be with a contractor with a company called van tarver. so what does this vin tarver your firm has anything to
1:02 pm
do with the pfizer and it's vaccine you might ask? so it all goes back to the 3rd phase of clinical trials on the vaccine. some might argue that it's the most important phase. so pfizer to do the these trials, it hired a number of firms and a number of contractors. and so these contractor companies, they were responsible for the, for the trials in total phases. vaccine was tested on more than 40000 subjects. in fact, the numbers closer to 44000 and this vin ta via firm was responsible to conducting trials on about a 1000 of people. and so this whistleblower, she claims that she has observed some negligence. some are well, some violations during those trials. for example, according to the allegations, participants were placed in a hallway after that receiving the job. so instead of getting proper medical attention, they were somewhere in the hallway on top of that,
1:03 pm
she's accused batavia of a lack of timely follow up on patients who showed some severe symptoms which could be interpreted as well. side effects of the vaccine that they're using. the word or the british medical journal is using the word adverse events in relation to the symptoms to these will potential side effects also protocol deviations. we're not being reported according to the allegations. the vaccines were apparently not stored at proper temperatures, and this is crucial for 5 for the 5 the vaccine. because, well, it has to be stored a very particular temperature, very low temperature. and this is something that makes the transportation of this vaccine, particularly challenging. also are the whistleblower reported mislabeled laboratory specimens and apparently vent avia targeted. those members of staff who world tried to blow the whistle and tried to bring to light. these are these discrepancies or
1:04 pm
these instances. and the. 2 whistleblower saying that she was victim over such targeting that she was fired after she tried to bring to light these allegations. so when, according to her, the company or when these allegations 1st fell on deaf ears or within the company, she assembled them. she put them together and sent them all to the da, the u. s. agency, a governmental body responsible for giving the approval for the emergency use of vaccine. and this is the response she got. have a list. within hours, jackson received an e mail from the if da, thanking her for her concerns, and notifying her that the f. d. a could not comment on any investigation that might result. a few days later, jackson received a call from an f da inspector to discuss her report, but was told that no further information could be provided. she heard nothing further in relation to her report. well, given what we've just heard, it could have been world seen as an optimistic sign for this whistle blower. you know, company the, or rather the of
1:05 pm
d a getting back to her the very same day. and obviously she comes across as a very concerned person. and on top of that, all of this happened in september last year, which is important because that's before 5, the phases vaccine got the approval of the of da so well. so the only logical assumption that would be is that the of da will look into these claims, address them and well make a decision whether or not they were important our bud in december, same year, the price of vaccine god. oh god, the well it, it was recognized, it was recommended for emergency use by the of da and the of the a did not address any of the allegations have listened to or to, apart from the article in the british medical journal. info as briefing documents submitted to an f d, a advisory committee meeting held on the 10th of december 2020, to discuss fries as application for emergency youth authorization of its cove at night in vaccine. the company made no mention of problems at the vent,
1:06 pm
obvious site. the next day the fda issued the authorization of the vaccine. while i guess the only the only logical outtake from the story would be listened to your doctor before while you know, putting anything in your body or we have contacted to pfizer, infant our via and the f, the a to comments on the claim so far they've not responded, we will, of course, let you know the moment they do some actually have got though microbiologist, doctor simon clark told us, he's concerned that the allegations could lower the public trust than such vaccines . the biggest problem or potential problem with, with this article in the bridge medical journal, he said it would affect or could affect public confidence in the vaccines when really should a mistake to happen. but it's important to, to, to acknowledge that when you know mistakes it's happened. you recall, take new, acknowledge it, and deal with it. this could happen with any that said, no, just actually people should remember that many,
1:07 pm
many millions of people around the world have this vaccine. and it's effective alex names us democrats of suffered a pivotal defeat in the state of virginia and losing a governance election that the 1st time into terms. it's also widely seen as a blow to joe biden, at downing judgments on his presidency role in that next from corresponding kind of morbid democrats are quite shaken up by the earthquake results of the race for governor in the state of virginia glen, yanking the republican candidate one, now this is a state where joe biden defeated donald trump and a solid 10 points back in 2020. but now that state seems to be shifting into the republican camp. land junkin was victorious, the democrat was defeated. quite a shake up in the state of virginia. here's some of what we heard. that is a 5 alarm fire. somebody and i opened mccollugh scans was there was recall of it this way to me about an hour ago is of what beth,
1:08 pm
this is your life vote right now. where are there counties where my cough is under performing northern by more than oh my god. now, some democrats think that this could be related to the falling poll numbers of joe biden. joe biden is not doing well. a number of americans disapprove of him. his approval rating is around 42 percent. and many look at the situation in virginia as one opportunity where voters stepped up and tried to register their discontent with how biden has led the country. clearly the presidents drop in favorability made it very difficult for the democratic nominee to stay above water. now $7.10 americans say that they don't like the direction in which biden is leading the united states and a poll conducted among democrats and independents who are democrat leaning. this poll came out and said that 40 percent of them think that their own party might do better to not nominate joe biden for reelection in 2024,
1:09 pm
but instead to pick another candidate. now this defeat or terry mcculla fe, mainstream democrat, located in the state of virginia, long time figure in virginia. politics has been quite a blow. you'll recall that in the lead up to the vote that happened tuesday. both the president and vice president traveled to virginia and emphasized how important this election was in virginia will in large part determine what happens in 2020 to 2024 and on. so it seems like this was an opportunity for voters to register their discontent. there's a lot of rising frustration with the biden administration over the unpopular co, that vaccine mandates over stagnation and inflation in the economy. and over the issue of the afghan pull out, which was very chaotic and in the lead up to the vote. national democratic party figures like president joe biden and vice president campbell heiress went to virginia to emphasize the importance of this election. they presented voters in
1:10 pm
virginia with their agenda, and it appears a lot of them did not like what they heard. i live now to social and political commentator anthony bryan local mocha back to r t i the numbers a year ago, joe biden won virginia by 10 percentage points. now the candidate he back so strongly has come a distance 2nd, what's changed? well, the main thing here is that we've seen joe biden for about a year or so, and the policies aren't really working too well. the situation with the unemployment is kind of tricky. as far as inflation. there's jobs available, paying a lot of money, but you have an inflation that's kind of cancelling that out. a lot of good and available to come into the country. and then in virginia itself, critical race theory is a very serious problem that the democratic candidate mcculla kind of ignore kind of just says the way i like it wasn't really a big deal. and glen young can really hopped on. and also
1:11 pm
a lot of these virus mandates and lot downs bridging is didn't net like very much. they don't like the way the country is going. they don't why averaging is going. and they came out and almost i was say record numbers to express their grievance. so these voters that didn't vote in the presidential election of now trying to make their feelings better known or have people's minds changed in virginia. was probably a combination of both and maybe a few more things. people in vote, every single county as far as what else are new york times every single county in virginia, even the really, really blue places like loudon county, fairfax county that are very important all the way out to the far was place close to west virginia every county lead more republicans so there was a higher turn out. but also a lot of people on democratic side just kind of weren't really enthused. they weren't really even a democrats, they don't want to vote for glenn young. came to not want to come out and vote for
1:12 pm
terry mcauliffe. they weren't really enthusiastic to go out there and do that. there was no trump on it. take it, there was no billing on, take it, they go out there and rally against. so i think the republican is, is one of what they wanted in a democratic, more, really excited. what about job biden's rather dismal poll ratings? how much is that impacting voters minds? oh, that's definitely going away on voters. mine is a lot because we see what is happening if in 2020, just one year ago. joe biden won estate by 10 percentage points, 10 percentage points. $5545.00 in the state, and then one year later, there's a 4 points. wayne, as far as democrat republican, obviously that's a review of joe biden. and his policies, they don't like what's going on and they don't like what's happening and they want the country going to different direction. and i think that this race is going to probably doom for the democratic party in a very near future. the democrats going to have to rethink the strategy of trying to tie candidates to what they would consider the toxic from brand that didn't work
1:13 pm
for them in virginia. they most certainly have to they can't just focus on a tech in truck because people understand that shop is not there. he's not the president. he's not the grad, it's running yet. the focus on who's running you can't take blame young came by attack in another person. talk about what you're going to bring into the table as democratic party. people see that the country is not going properly, and it's not enough to say, oh someone else's fault, what a guy's not very anymore. so you've got to look. busy at who's enough is right now, and if you want to have someone to tell the guys enough is right now, what are they going to do differently to, to get it's enough is right now has not done that he should be doing so? no, that's not going to work. they don't have to really refocused their strategy going forward. yeah, certainly there's going to be there anything that is, this is going to be some pretty intent strategy discussions that the democratic party gordon anthony brown. logan good to talk to you again. thanks for joining us . becky. meantime,
1:14 pm
a survey shows that americans trust in media outlets has steadily decline since joe biden took office. in january, almost a quarter of those surveyed said they had no trust in traditional or establishment news outlets at all when it comes to accurate and fair reports. with another 30 percent saying that trust was at a very low level since the start of the biden presidency. the level of media trust has suffered a 16 percent slide. a journalist and all the chris hedges told us the issues field by polarization in american society. people do trust their favored a partisan media outlet. the problem is they don't trust any other our. the fact is the country now is completely divided into antagonistic or opposing demographics and media. the commercial model of all, all media outlets at this point is to cater to that particular demographic. now that's how they make their money. they slice that demographic, they feed that demographic. what it wants to hear,
1:15 pm
whether it's true or not. so you're feeding that demographic. what it wants to hear, while at the same time, demonizing, the other demographic and all media, major media outlets are guilty of this. you've seen a huge drop in terms of viewership at outlets like cnn or m. s m, b c. because they demonized trump, and they could day after day terrify their viewers with whatever the latest trump full power was or, and that the whole election of biden was really anybody but trump, the media landscape itself as undergoing a kind of see change in all of this pulling reflects those divisions and the stoking of the antagonisms between the demographics that are catered to by the major media outlets residence in the u. s. city of minneapolis to voted against the bid to get rid of the local police and replace them with supposedly more benign public safety officials. the proposal came off to the murder of george floyd guy
1:16 pm
last year and it incited nationwide protests and demands to defund the police. ah ah well here's what the poles say. people still have an unfavorable view of police in the city. however, many more people would not like the number of officers to be reduced to position that's especially strong among the black community. now the rejection of the referendum may be linked to
1:17 pm
a surgeon violent crimes in the city. a mentally staffing shortages. the number of homicides this year is already much higher than in 20. 19 the last year before the rise in crime last, our american police officers iq arkham told us he believes the situation on the streets may change people's attitudes from defending the police to supporting them . diesel and the police just as a regular rule has been colossal failure. he placing tried to implement de from the police crime has gone up with has been in new york, chicago in minneapolis in l. a. it's, it's been a colossal failure because what stops crime, what brings crime down, especially violent crime or more police on the street. you have to have police on the street in order for your street, be safe violence reduction, or reducers, you know, community activists. i want to go out and talk to gang members, isn't going to work and the evidence shows it. i'm glad that sanity prevailed in minneapolis. because otherwise, with their streets would have been complete chaos on. if you look at it, any place,
1:18 pm
believe, tried to defend the police, they've actually had to increase the police budget for over time for more resources to hire more cops. so hopefully this is going to be a trend in the other way to start actually supporting police and actually fun the police and a victory for drug companies. a california judge has ruled that full manufacturers can't be held responsible for the state opioid crisis. saying there's no evidence that the rights in prescriptions was down to misleading marketing. and it's thought that the ruling could set a precedent for similar cases in other states. we got the thoughts of jake bradshaw who became addicted to the pills that he was prescribed. it's sent to very dangerous precedent and more importantly it's, it's sad. this is, this is becoming a in america, very common knowledge that companies like purdue pharma, sat around the board room table and made a decision to target
1:19 pm
a blue collar areas in america. areas like southern ohio, eastern kentucky, west virginia, because they knew that their new powerful prescription opioid it would ah, flourish. there was the 1st time a drug companies, one in over 3000 law suits that have been filed. the appeal addiction crisis has claimed half a 1000000 lives in the united states. in the past 20 years, the previous administration declared a nationwide emergency after a 6 fold increase in fatal overdose is in 2020 alone more than 9000000 people with victims of opioid misuse, including teenagers and adults. the majority of which were prescribed medicine, mostly pain relievers. jake bradshaw says the court ruling leaves the vulnerable with no justice. i can remember being 1718 years old and having a very minor injury. and you know, being prescribed 40 milligrams of oxy gotten for injuries like that. there isn't, i don't think there is a government or
1:20 pm
a doctor or any medical professional who would call that reasonable. we've got millions of people whose lives have been affected by this. here we are years later knowing what we know, and we're still unable in courts to provide these families with, with some kind of justice for loved ones that they've lost or loved ones that are still struggling. it's a, it's, it's, it's a travesty. promises to protect the earth's forest. ambitious goals of net 0 by 2050 and giving cash to south africa to help it end its reliance on coal. the humans climate summit in scotland this week up to its pledge to save the planet with britain's prime minister taking the lead. although that said the u. k doesn't currently appear to be holding back on its own fossil fuel projects. a recent report reveals that around 40 plans of seeking approval in the u. k. in the next 4 years, which if approved, would really triple the countries yearly greenhouse gas emissions. may well does an ongoing dispute over a proposed new coal mine in northwest england, iowa bowers?
1:21 pm
johnson doesn't support it. he insists it's not his job to get involved locals. there though. say they desperately needed. i'm sure. go ahead. it will be mind in the surface cleaners grayness where it can possibly be done. plans are being explored for the 1st coal mine to be opened in the u. k. in 30 years here in the coastal town of white haven in northwest england. just a 140 miles north from here, the cop 26 summit in glasgow is in full swing. the u. k is of course, hosting that summit, that critics say it sends out the completely wrong message for the hosts to be giving the green light to this coal mine. while at the same time preaching the green message to the rest of the world, the u. k. government has decided not to intervene with the plans of opening and brand new english coal mine. this really shows the true meaning of so called net 0 . 2050. these vague and sufficient targets long into the future basically mean nothing to day. but contrary to what some make spect given phase as a potential air pollution,
1:22 pm
the locals are quite happy to have it. many of them think it could spark a much needed economic revival to step forward, really for technology and everything else is failing to produce your mining area. and i know for many, many years now as all gone, we journey jobs, indiana networks in line until it's here, the prototypes that are coming in as well to assist and also educate to the kids in a very deprived area of the okay. and that's what's needed to drive the future to drive education and support the kids. a local campaign is in support of the mind, say that coaching coal, which is used to manufacture steel rather than generate energy, is being unfairly maligned by green activists. this is just an older piece to the puzzle. got his green, green glee we, we are an environmental area. we understand what the problems are when there's no denial. if there's an issue that is a problem. we've got nuclear, we've got winds, we've got a high job that will be coming to some point in the future. and thankfully,
1:23 pm
if we get this, my going as a will be say him a coca cola from over there. is that transport it from america? which is couldn't, we've all been served on to think that john cutty seldom is that we shouldn't open a mind when we're buying all the coal of it. it's a bit hypocritical west cumbria mining. the company in charge argues that the project will be the world's 1st net 0 metallurgical coal mine in the world. ministers of argued in favor of the project from an economic perspective, as well as an environmental one to it's a very small, as i understand quite specialist, a form of coal that's being that would be produced there on we'll have a negligible impact ons of the global coal usage, we need to transition our existing oil and gas sector to a d carbon ice platform. what others want to see is a complete eclipse and shutting down of oil and gas with 250000 jobs vanishing

overnight. the u. k. government on the pressure from climate groups intervened and ordered an inquiry by a planning inspector local may or refutes any objections. however, saying coaching call from the mind would drive forward green energy projects. he also insists that the project will revive the local economy off the curve. it, ma'am, i think you've got to look at the united kingdom as a whole. and we're responsible for just all the one percent of the entire world, carbon emissions on this. mine will british functional from north point one percent of that one percent the mine will have a huge positive economic impact on the, on the area h. e. i chuckled and investment issues private money coming in. are you talking 160000000 pound into, to watch a relatively small community that i'll create 500 direct jobs that have with the spin off of 1500 supply chain jobs that will transform people's lives in this area to inquire results the jew at the end of the year, well off to the climate debate has moved elsewhere for is johnson said at cop
1:25 pm
$26.00, that he didn't support the opening of the mind. that he would leave it to the planning committees to decide an indication, perhaps of his own desire to not get dragged into a row with the local community desperate for the area once again to see economic regeneration. the sally ought see in white haven cumbria. so we talked to an environmental journalist about whether the british government is sticking to its pledge to drop fossil fuel. so no u. k. presidency of copies seriously undermined by the government's own actions in the united kingdom. government has agreed that it will not fund new fossil fuels by itself. however, dean united kingdom's financial industry and the financial industry globally, will i be able to continue to invest in fossil fuels, investments by the united kingdom in global fossil fuels, amounts to 15 percent of global investments. and that's where the united kingdom record is really terrible. in that it's

situation, there is no indication of a lack of gas supply in the coming months. of a settle optimism among spanish traders though portfolio manager felix moreno. think spain risks a potential gas deficit. spain scott supply is not in immediate danger, but it does leave, is in a very vulnerable situation. this a certainty of product going up and there is a danger of lack of supply. the situation with the boots is unreliable at the moment, as you know, containing boats and all boats are being stopped the ship to be stuck in many ports . so this has the potential to provoke, a lack of supply in the winter and winter's very close demand is going to go up to build. people need to heat the homes that have been a heated with solar yet, and have a good gas connections with the rest of europe. most of our gas comes from from the south, and it does leave using a very vulnerable situation. a total of $1400000.00 view as the new season of h. b os family. dentistry drama. succession is
