we have breaking news out of washington right now where south korean officials are announced that kim jong-un has extended an invitation to meet with president trump to discuss de-nuclearization. the national security adviser
4:14 pm
for the republic of korea made the announcement. and the president says he wants to meet by may. >> this is indeed a very big development. what do you make of the announcement? >> certainly good news. even if it doesn't lead to a final agreement, the fact that the two sides are going to be talking is critically important. you move away from the blustering and the threats to -- it's a reminder that in spite everything there may be a diplomatic solution to this process. >> what do you think is happening in the background? the u.s. was performing military exercises several months ago. and it seemed to flip. i didn't see that the u.s. did anything. >> the lack of immediate threats from the united states
4:15 pm
perhaps created a political space where the north koreans could make overtures and not look like they were being womenned. north korea is a very paranoid country and the paranoid structure of the government and propaganda system. threats only harden their attitude. my guess is that there are some quiet negotiations through the south koreans perhaps or other mediators to try to lay the groundwork for something like this. we may find this out eventually. but i think the fact that there's a pause in the rhetoric and the military exercises and the mutual threat may have created the kind of environment we needed. >> this announcement though and the fact that you heard south korean officials saying they are hopeful, that they are optimistic. is it too early to be using words like that, do you think?
4:16 pm
>> probably. but you obviously want to put on a more optimistic face when you're in a situation like this that -- you want to give people hope that at least it will amount to something. that's it's not just going to be fruitless or go on forever. and as a result, i'm personally not super optimistic that there'll be immediate breakthroughs, but they are wise to put a positive spin on it. >> so kim jong-un has invited president trump to meet with him. what do you think the odds of that happening are in your expert opinion? >> reporter: so far, the trump administration has made it clear that they would not meet with kim unless there are preconditions set. and the preconditions that i can't imagine that the north
4:17 pm
korean leadership would agree to. at the same time, i think that the invitation does indicate that the north koreans are open to some kind of talks, maybe not a summit such as this between the two leaders, but certainly either through intermediaries or through lower level officials. some progress could be made to address the mutual concerns of the nations involved. >> professor, we are just getting this into the newsroom. president trump has agreed to meet with kim jong-un in may. >> wow, that's huge. and i'm somewhat surprised. he had mentioned that during  the campaign but as president he's taken something of a harder line. so if this is the case, this is in fact quite significant and it will be very interesting to see what transpires. >> who knows who budged first,
4:18 pm
but in norfolk, some of the ships were taking part in the military exercises off the coast. and that ratcheted up things last summer. it's a good sign because -- tense between military officials and where we could be heading following the military exercises after north korea started testing the nuclear weapons. >> thank you for joining us. we just want to remind the viewers, president donald trump now planning to meet with north korea's kim jong-un by may. thanks so much, professor for your expertise. [ crowd chanting ] we move to this now. hundreds of women stopped traffic in madrid, spain, today. it's one of many demonstrations for billion women's day. women didn't show up to work and took to the streets to demand equality. in paris the focus was equal
4:19 pm
pay. the eiffel tower was illuminated with a message that read now we act. >> each time there is progress for women, and each time the society moves to equality, everyone benefits. >> in the fill pines -- and in saudi arabia, women took their first driving lessons, women will be allowed to get behind the wheel of a car in june. leigh martinez is live in berkeley where a union event is about to get underway calling for improving working conditions for female employees. >> reporter: that's right. it will happen in a half hour. this rally will highlight women janitors who struggle to support their families and they do have a desire to unionize. 2017 saw renewal in women's issues. and today we have a highlight of the events that happened
4:20 pm
earlier today. >> reporter: in the past year, women kept the spotlight on the obstacles women face at work. and across the world, women have pushed for progress. they call for workplace equality and an end to sexual harassment. events around the bay focused on the contributions and achievements of women. san francisco's cloud fair celebrated legendary women in tech with the press for progress. >> i wanted to be a doctor because i love helping people. the thing about technology, you can help people -- >> jennifer taylor says the woman who brought her into the technology field is one of her biggest inspirations. >> we started talking and i said your job sounds really
4:21 pm
interesting. she created an opening for me at her company. >> to play an important role for other women. >> i think for me with technology, i came of age where it was very unstructured. there wasn't a clear path and i really was inspired by the opportunity to define my own path and help bring other people along with me. >> reporter: the county supervisor in san jose spoke to female students at notre dame high school and honored those who work in justice and public service. a highlight was the judge who became the court's first minority presiding judge in 2014. the judge spoke about how she attended a catholic high school in little rock two years after segregation ended. >> i did not anticipate the difficulties that i would have in making friends once i got there. i made a couple of friends, the first year.
4:22 pm
and when i returned, i had to make them all over again. and by the third year, i just gave up. gaining acceptance by the students and the teachers alike was a challenge. that did not dampen my desire to do a good job. >> reporter: the message is for rim to work towards an america that creates equal opportunities and equal recognition. and another thing that all of these inspiring women have in common is that they always believed in themselves. they never doubted what they could do. >> that was leigh martinez reporting for us in berkeley. that union event is about to get underway in a moment. mcdonald's is turning the golden arches upside down. instead of an m, there was a w.
4:23 pm
this is near los angeles, the only one to flip the external sign upside down. >> if we could walk away understanding that we as brand mcdonald's understand the importance of the contribution of women and we want to say thank you and we want to have fun with it. >> in a statement. mcdonald's said it's proud of its diversity. and six of 10 restaurant owners in mcdonald's are women. let's check on the weather with mark tamayo. >> hard to believe we started the day with clouds and scattered showers. >> still a few lingering clouds and mild. 60s in a few spots. this system producing more than just a few sprinkles. some of the rainfall reports, nearly a quarter inch for the mill valley and santa rosa.
4:24 pm
a tenth in -- and still enough to impact the commute. here is the satellite. and you've been hearing a lot about the nor'easter. and you can see the evidence moving up to the north and east. and for us, lingering clouds in place. if you were to look outside the coast right now. looks like a summertime pattern. look at what's developed. a solid fog bank near portions of the coastline. dense fog closer to ocean beach. and out to the sunset district. and locally back into the bay. let's show you the real thing. looks like the middle of june or july. you can barely see the top of the towers here. looks like a summertime weather pattern but it's still march. a little bit of a change in the weather pattern for today. nice and chilly near the immediate coastline. overnight lows are in the 40s

4:26 pm
4:27 pm
4:28 pm
well, is there a link between video games and violent acts? president trump says yes and discussed the topic with industry executives at the white house. griff jenkins is in washington with more. >> president trump in meeting at the white house, talking video games and whether they make children more aggressive and contribute to the nation's higher level of gun violence. industry leaders have argued no, they don't. following the school shooting in florida, the president pointed to video games as an influencer. a neighbor of 19-year-old
4:29 pm
nikolas cruz telling police the teenager played violent video games for up to 15 hours a day. >> we need to stop and step back without going to censorship. and ask what is the impact of allowing kids to see violence over and over and over again in the form of a game? >> the white house is committed to a holistic approach to stop gun violence in schools. the president tells cabinet members that great progress has been made. >> we're taking strong action as you know. bump stocks -- we have statute story ceilings we have to go through to get rid of things that people agree we should get rid of >> lamar alexander says schools should focus on mental health and violence prevention. and is urging congress to invest federal dollars. >> we can't just let our children be killed and we
4:30 pm
washington to do what we can. >> today's meeting was not the first time that game makers have been called to the white house. in 2013, vice president biden met with industry leaders after the elementary school massacre in newtown, connecticut. the white house says president trump's meeting will be the first of several more to come. in washington, griff jenkins, fox news. ♪ >> protesters gathered outside the headquarters in foster city today. their calling on the company to stop processing payments from those that sell bump stocks and assault weapons. >> paypal, square, and apple pay already don't allow any vendors who sell guns at all to do business on their networks.
4:31 pm
so we think that it is a modest ask, a fair ask, and a just ask to ask visa, mastercard, credit card companies to take similar action to stop assault weapons. we believe visa's acceptance policy should be guided by the laws of the country in which we do business. the trial is underway for a san francisco police officer accused of running from the scene of a crash in north beach. our legal analyst talks with me next about the unusual consequence. and breaking news. >> north korea will halt nuclear ambitions. and president trump will meet with north korean leader kim jong-un. we'll have more coming up.

4:37 pm
attorney, he had a knee operation a couple of weeks before this accident. now someone might think he is on medication, and then he is at a bar, a club, in san francisco. one person might think he was drinking combined with the drugs. we don't know that no. then he gets into this accident at rockaway and montgomery and severely injures people. then he gets out and goes on my god i am so afraid of this crowd. here is a police officer that might be armed because they do where the weapon off-duty, so i am assuming that he is armed, tough guy, and used to dealing with this, and he says oh my god i am so afraid and i have to run. so off i go! baloney. it might work on a san francisco jury, i don't know. but my common sense tells me that he assessed what should i do. if he is either under the influence of drugs or alcohol,
4:38 pm
he takes off and is doing what is good for him because he knows that would be felony drunk driving with the great bodily injury. that is a lot a prison time. now the district attorney cannot prove sense off he goes, whether or not he is under the influence of alcohol or drugs. but he did himself a world of good when he ran. >> so you think you really knew what was at stake here? >> he is a police officer. he knows exactly what he is doing. he knows if he gets popped for drinking and driving and causes great bodily injury, that is state prison on steroids. he thinks, oh my god, if i leave, they will never leave -- prove that i am under the influence, and they will get me in the hit-and-run. it might work. good luck to him. >> do you feel like the defense is grasping at straws? >> they are not grasping at straws. when you are talking about circumstantial evidence, if it is sub separable to recent
4:39 pm
interpretations, then the jury has to point to innocence. in this one, there will be no proof of drugs or drinking, so the hit-and-run jury has to decide if we believe you, the big hulk from castro and you would so afraid of this cry, i don't believe it! you are not afraid! you are a cop. you are doing this every day. he is going to get it handed to him. >> we will see what this jury decides. a new study shows just a quick false information can spread on twitter. but who is to blame may be a bit of a surprise. details are coming up after the break. the rain cloud from this morning have moved out, but we have some dense fog showing up off sore -- offshore and what that means for your friday forecast and at least two systems that show up in your five-day forecast coming up when we come back.

4:41 pm
4:42 pm
listen to this. a new study finds that false information on twitter travel six times faster than the truth. it reaches far more people too. you cannot blame it on robots know. researchers say human beings are spreading the bogus stories . for more on the study and what is begun to prevent the spread of false information, we are joint by brian. >> i was going to say that the research at mit released a
4:43 pm
study today in that they studied hundred 26,000 tweets over a ten-year period from 2006 two 2016. they found -- to 2016. they found that a true tweet take 60 hours to reach users, and the interesting thing is the penetration of those false tweets is way more grant than the true one. this is kind of like our mom has always told us that lies spread fast. the more sensational the story, then the faster he travels. >> that is what i was going to ask you. what is the common thread here?>> it is mostly false political stories. something that is surprising or evokes anger in you. there was a yell university professor who said that more
4:44 pm
strange and more sensational the story sounds, the more likely they are going to retweet it. >> so how far are those fake stories going out there? >> the interesting thing is that the top 1% of the fault stories can reach over 100,000 people, and reach 24 different generations. so a true story, unfortunate, does not penetrate that far. it reaches under a dozen generations and is rarely retweeted by more than 1000 people. here is the thing. i have a solution for all of this. all that needs to be done is take the same algorithm that these social media companies are applying to their and distributors, and apply the same quality standards to the people that are posting. it is as simple as being able to play two star facebook posts as false -- flag facebook posts as false. if enough people were to flag a
4:45 pm
story is untrue, then the logarithm would wipe it from the system, and nobody would see a.>> who funded this study? >> this study was funded by twitter, but it was conducted by mit, and it is being cited all over the place. it is amazing information and i don't know how many time you open up -- times you open up your social media and you see these crazy tweets. all you have to do is go to certain websites like snoop.tom -- com and take two seconds to verify. >> twitter is not everything. you have to do a little research on your said.:you so much. back to our meteorologist and we are talking about how things have turned around from earlier this morning. >> it is hard to believe that
