1:19 am
a very significant event because of where it happened because it aired on the fox news channel this is conservatives as far as television goes this is where conservatives in america go for news pew research study found overwhelmingly that it's the only broadcast or cable television network that conservatives trust they watch it in large numbers and so to hear chris wallace challenge donald trump in a way that he has not been challenged on that network previously that could come as a bit of a shock and we'll see how they react to it in addition to the traffic it's getting it through other media outlets that might find people more critical of trump to begin with the journalists working there people like chris wallace play such a significant role in american media they are kind of the one opportunity to voice this what could be seen as liberal bias to their viewers but to a lot of the rest of us who look like objective journalism hard hitting interview questions wallace following up on and making donald trump find support for some of
1:20 am
these claims that he's been making you know all over the country and he's trouble to do it at times and that's that's important for those conservative viewers to c.n.n. as you pointed out not just conservatives but the largest news audience on cable television in the u.s. . it's going to chill in our a group called that last speak a mud global sensation when they're choreographed chant the now sing violence against women went viral it's being used by activists around the world and has been translated into several different languages alas this cease is now being sued by chilean police for allegedly instigating violence the same police force that they accuse of committing abuses and human reports from some people. last november no one had heard of us they cease until the chilean groups before minutes of a rapist in your path turned into the feminist and worldwide. 2
