12:02 am
forward with their big 5g rollout planned for tomorrow it's the long-awaited update that the companies say will provide higher-speed internet and more reliable cell service but an 11th-hour decision, the wireless carriers today announce they will not turn on towers near 82 of america's airports, at least not tomorrow. it's a slight concession in a standoff with america's airlines that, as we reported last night, warned of possible catastrophic disruptions. ten airline executives sent a letter to the administration saying the nation's commerce will grind to a halt they warn that people and shipments will struggle to get where they need to go. they say 5g can disrupt a key instrument that planes use for navigation and landing -- the radio altimeter. it measures the plane's height above the ground, and pilots say it's critical, especially in bad weather. now, at&t and verizon say they will give the faa more time to
12:03 am
figure out how to make it work but they also pointed fingers at that agency for not getting it done sooner. we are frustrated, they wrote, by the faa's inability to do what nearly 40 countries have done, which is to safely deploy 5g technology without disrupting aviation services, and we urge it to do so in a timely manner president biden thanked the wireless companies today saying the move will help avoid potentially devastating disruptions. in audio moment, we will hear from the former acting-faa administration daniel elwell but first, cnbc's phil lebeau with where things stand tonight. phil. >> the domestic airlines are going over the details of this agreement and also looking at the guidance from the faa when it comes to their schedules and the fleets the types of planes they fly to make sure they are not gonna encounter any problems once 5g is activated tomorrow, which they are not expecting and then, for some of the foreign airlines, they fly into
12:04 am
the united states some of them have already proactively cancelled some of their flights into the u.s. because they were unsure what the agreement might be reached or when an agreement might be reached so those schedules are, to a certain extent, paused for some of those airlines, those foreign airlines but that could change in the next day or two. >> so what happens, phil, for people scheduled to fly tomorrow >> well, the expectation is that the overwhelming majority of flights, and really almost all of the flights, will take off as scheduled. i have not heard of any cancellations due to the 5g rollout, and then for those people you know they go about their business, the real concern, shep, is going to be when you have airports with bad weather or fog with a radio altimeter is really necessary, is there a concern about 5g around those airports? now, this delay should avoid that problem but this is one of those situations where to a certain extent, they have kicked the can down the road a bit. >> all right phil, phil lebeau, thank you the acting faa administrator
12:05 am
now. served under the previous administration daniel, thanks so much the wireless carriers really laid into the faa. they say the agency had two years to prepare, and yet here we are but the fcc did years of analysis, and said all would be well what happened? why wasn't the faa ready for this >> not sure the faa, um, it should get quite the -- the commentary that they got um, from at&t. um, the fcc may have done a couple -- couple years of analysis but they are not required and they didn't do an analysis of aviation safety. it is just not in the process and that is one of the things that has to change going forward. and this is going to happen again. so they need to get that process locked down. faa over a year and a half ago while i was still there wrote a letter to the ntia -- um -- it -- it -- in -- and raised the flag about the concerns about 5g transmission and aviation.
12:06 am
but there needs to be a more robust process, certainly. >> yeah as you know, 5g's widely used in europe no apparent problems with any flights at all why and how is this different? >> well, i can't really speak to what europe has done um, other than -- >> kbepexcept that it's workingn there. >> well, they also have a different buffer band than we have here. they are operating all their operators are operating at different power levels um these sbrinterference issuesr about the power level each station has which there is an infinite variety of permutations you can have with that the other thing is telecom companies are not very forthcoming about plans where they are going to put stations, what kind of power it is a competitive ithing and so, you know, it is really hard to gather that information in a way that -- that the faa can act in a more timely manner than they currently do. i think the process needs to start earlier and be more transparent. >> we are looking at interagency
12:07 am
turf battles doesn't this go all the way to the top at the faa i mean if we are telling the truth about it >> well, technically, there is quite a -- quite a collection of technicians and engineers that look at these things um, there is no final authority that writes off or signs off on -- on a telecommunication company transmitting and that's part of the issue. um, faa found out about the plan for 5g, and then had its engineers look at it some time ago and saw there could be an issue. it just -- it's a process that -- that needs to -- needs to be more formalized and needs to start earlier that's -- that's for sure. >> yeah. earlier than a few hours before it starts. daniel elwell, good of you to be here thank you. only in america. the white house warning a russian invasion of ukraine could be imminent. >> this is an extremely dangerous situation. we are now at a stage where russia could, at any point, launch an attack in ukraine.
12:08 am
it is the choice of president putin and the russians to make whether they are going to suffer severe economic consequences or not. >> as fears of war do mount in europe, secretary of state tony blinken is now set to meet face to face with his russian counterpart, the foreign minister, sergey lavrov, on friday in geneva now, the white house says he will urge russia to take immediate steps to deescalate, meaning the same thing we have been doing ahead of the high-stakes meeting, secretary blinken is heading to ukraine to meet with the president there, vladimir zelensky that's tomorrow. as russian troops continue to mass near the border the senate will vote on a -- or take the vote on a voting rights bill even though it's doomed to fail that was the message from the senate majority leader chuck schumer today. he forged ahead with debate on the legislation, even though democrats do not have the votes to pass it. >> the eyes of the nation will
12:09 am
be watching what happens this week in the united states senate the american people deserve to see their senators go on record on whether they will support these bills or oppose them. >> senators sinema and manchin have said they oppose changing the senate's filibuster rule it allows the minority -- in this case, the republicans -- to block any bill that fails to get 60 votes senate democrats say they are now weighing a rule change for a talking filibuster that would force republicans to hold the floor and when they stop talking, the senate would be able to advance a bill with just 51 votes. it's unlikely that senators manchin or sinema would go for that and the bill will not pass. after major setbacks to president biden's agenda, and a dismal approval rating that just keeps sinking, nbc news reports the white house is plotting a reset and a new strategy to turn things around. the latest poll from quinnipiac
12:10 am
shows president biden's approval rating has dropped to 33% among u.s. adults. and as president biden's popularity has plummeted, the gop has seen a boost take a look at this gallup poll. you can see the percentage of americans who identify as or lean republican swung in the gop's favor over the course of the last year. the democrats' urgency to reset the president's image comes as he prepares to enter year two in office that comes thursday. nbc's carole lee at the white house with her reporting on the changes being planned. >> reporter: shep, this is really what the white house is saying is a communications reset. so, senior administration officials have told us that one of the things that they are going to do is not have the president so public about his conversations with members of congress so, not get in the weeds on negotiating and all of those images that we've seen over the past year of the president going up to capitol hill, meeting with lawmakers to hash out the details of legislation instead, they say they are going
12:11 am
to put the president in a position where he is talking directly to american -- the american people. now, they don't know what this is going to look like. there is an agreement on the strategy and that this needs to change but they don't know exactly how they are going to do that. whether it's going to mean that the president is out there more, meeting with americans, or traveling or having people at the white house, things like that obviously, there are some covid reasons why that may be a little bit difficult for the president. but this is really a recognition that things aren't going well. something needs to change, and in their view at the moment, that is his relationship with -- in terms negotiating with congress those things are going to happen much quieter and he will talk directly to the american people as senior administration officials said now, it's worth noting that this is not new presidents have tried this before is this kind of an evergreen tactic when things aren't going well, presidents tend to look around washington and say i am done
12:12 am
with you, enough of that and i am going directly to the american people. that's had mixed success in the past so i think the question is whether or not, shep, this is something that's actually going to work. >> carol lee, we will see. thank you. covid staffing shortages hitting frontline workers hard so, one hospital in texas is leaning on some new tech for help we will take you inside a virtual intensive care unit saving lives. homes destroyed after a volcano erupts now, a new warning from local officials about a different disaster they fear may be around the corner and wall street's buzzing after a major acquisition move today by microsoft what we know about the multibillion-dollar deal the facts, the truth, "the news with shepard smith" back in 60 seconds there's a lot to deal. not just unpredictable relapses. all these other things too. it can all add up. kesimpta is a once-monthly at-home injection...
12:13 am
that may help you put these rms challenges in their place. kesimpta was proven superior at reducing the rate of relapses, active lesions, and slowing disability progression vs aubagio. don't take kesimpta if you have hepatitis b, and tell your doctor if you have had it, as it could come back. kesimpta can cause serious side effects, including infections. while no cases of pml were reported in rms clinical trials, it could happen. tell your doctor if you had or plan to have vaccines, or if you are or plan to become pregnant. kesimpta may cause a decrease in some types of antibodies. the most common side effects are upper respiratory tract infection, headache, and injection reactions. ready for an at-home treatment with dramatic results? it's time to ask your doctor about kesimpta.

12:15 am
dr. scott gottlieb says the united states may be approaching a major turning point. >> i think the base cases that this signals the end of the p pandemic phase of this virus. >> infections are still rising in many parts of the country in some areas, hospitals are at capacity, and their health care workers are stretched very thin. so a hospital in houston is turning to virtual icus to try to take pressure off its staff doctors and nurses say it allows them to provide the same quality of care. the only difference is, they can do it remotely >> reporter: this is the operations center in the virtual icu at houston methodist right now, registered nurses are able to monitor in real time patients in icu rooms across all eight of their hospitals and if one of their colleagues
12:16 am
working on the floor needs some assistance, they're only a push away pretend i'm one of the nurses working in the virtual icu here, monitoring different patient vic vi vitals if the numbers start to dip, i can alert the nurses and doctors in the icu, i can also zoom in to try to get a better read on the oxygen flow. maybe as a nurse is outside the door putting on their ppe and give them a bit of a head's up, maybe i can start brainstorming ideas to help the patient a little bit faster. this isn't something that houston methodist starting doing solely because of the pandemic, but they say it's been a vital resource during covid surges,
12:17 am
especially as they've dealt with staffing issues. >> before virtual icu, it was just me. if i had a medical icu patient holding, and i didn't have a doctor to run ideas by, hey, can you pretty please help me out? now that person is right there for me, hit the button, they're my resource. >> reporter: they have buttons in some 300 icu rooms. they can push the button, and almost instantly get assistance. on other floors, they have cuars that function in a similar way if i'm an icu nurse, that patient is staying in the e.r., i can push this button and pretty quickly -- hi, laura,

city of boston and its refusal to allow a private group to fly a christian flag in front of city hall. the grouo censoring religious message in a public forum pete williams joins us now with a breakdown. >> reporter: this is partly a factual question what is the flagpole the group suing the city says the city approves just about any request, flags of foreign countries, and groups in the city the city has said no only once, and that was to the christian flag but there's also a constitutional question about whether the city is right when it says that letting the christian flag fly on the city's flagpole would amount to a government endorsement of
12:47 am
religion >> did you get a sense of the room >> i think a majority will say it's clear that the flagpole is a public forum, because of the laissez faire way the city has allowed flags. i think the justices will say the city got the law wrong, it would violate the separation of religion and state if it flew every day, but if you let it fly for just an hour, it's not an endorsement of religion. my prediction is the city will lose, and it will take much more control over the flag pole from now on. >> pete, thank you, sir.
