12:01 pm
. just in several of evening here in moscow life, marty's world news h q this wednesday evening. welcome to the program, kevin o'neill for the next 30 minutes, letting used to tell you about as well. got some live interviews coming up. but this 1st, the british medical journals published a whistleblower, a poll, claiming there was serious flaws in phases cobit vaccine trials last year. the research behind the claims said she was fired the same day. she raised her concerns and further, she claims us authorities a refusing to investigate with the latest on it egos, dental. 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 and vetted 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
12:02 pm
a company called ventana. so what does this vin tarver your firm has anything to 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 contracted companies they were responsible for the, for the trials in total fighters. vaccine was tested on more than 40000 subjects. in fact, the numbers closer to 44000 and this vin tarver 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
12:03 pm
a hallway after that receiving the job. so instead of getting proper medical attention, they would somewhere in the hallway on top of that, 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 as they are 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 were 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 at a very particular temperature, a very low temperature. and this is something that makes the transportation of this vaccine, particularly challenging also on the whistleblower reported mislabeled laboratory specimens and apparently vent avia targeted. those members of staff who well tried to blow the whistle and tried to bring to light. these are,
12:04 pm
these discrepancies are these instances under the 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 a vaccine. and this is the response she got herbalists. 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 had,
12:05 pm
it could have been world seen as an optimistic sign for this whistleblower, you know, company the or rather the of 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 the a. so well, the only logical assumption that would be is that the of the i will look into these claims address them and well make a decision whether or not they were important. ah, but 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 the 8 and the of the a did not address any of the allegations have listened to the are 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
12:06 pm
night in vaccine. the company made no mention of problems at the vent, obvious site. the next day, the da issued the authorization of the vaccine. well, i guess the only the only logical outtake from the story would be listened to your doctor before. well, you know, putting anything in your body date wise words and days now we reached out to pfizer, can tell you an van tarver on the f d a to comment on those allegations so far, none of those 3 of responded if they do, we'll let you know what to say. we spoke to, to microbiologist, talk to simon clark of the reading university, who's concerned the allegations could lower the public trust in the vaccine. the biggest problem potential problem with, with this article in the bridge medical journal, it would affects or could affect public confidence. ready in the vaccines when really shouldn't mistakes to happen. but it's important to, to, to acknowledge that when you know mistakes is happened, you recall take new,
12:07 pm
acknowledge it, and deal with it. this could happen with any that said, not just of actually people should remember that many, many millions of people around the world, this vaccine. and it's effective alex names across this of the pivot filled of feeds in the state of virginia losing a governor's election there for the 1st time in 2 terms. it's been widely seen as a blow to joe biden damning judgment on his presidency. let's get lace on this love to kill him open. caleb, the bite and cap is going to be reeling from this year. indeed, it was an earthquake in virginia. this is a state where biden defeated donald trump by 10 points, but now the governorship of the u. s state of virginia will be back in the hands of republicans, glenn young. can the republican is victorious? this is quite a shake up. that is a 5 alarm fire. somebody in ohio, mac,
12:08 pm
all scans was there with college. but it just went to me about an hour ago. it's a blood bath. this is your live vote right now where other counties were mcauliffe is under performing, nor them by more than oh my god. now, many democrats are linking this to jo biden's, low polling numbers. clearly the president drop in favor ability made it very difficult for the democratic nominee to stay above water. well, it's not just jo biden's approval rating 7 in 10 americans now say that they think joe biden is leading the country in the wrong direction. and surprisingly, a poll among democrats, an independent minded, but democratic leading voters. this poll says that 40 percent of them think that it might be a smart move for the democrats not to nominate joe biden in 2024, and not to have him run for reelection, that they might have
12:09 pm
a better chance of taking back the white house with another candidate, this is quite a big defeat. you'll note that terry mcauliffe, who was the democrat running in this governor's race in virginia. i had the support from both the president and vice president. they went to virginia and campaigned for him and said, it was a big election. i will in large part determine what happens is 202220248 appears this virginia governor's race was a place for american voters to register their frustration, frustration about coven mandates that had been unpopular. the vaccine mandates frustration about inflation, frustration about the kiosk afghan pullout, and when the mainstream of the democratic party went to virginia to push forward
12:10 pm
its agenda, it appears that voters heard that agenda and didn't like it. yeah, fall from playing salary. the moment for blind in the okay, thanks to bring us up to speed on that a lot of wound licking there tonight. thanks. no. meantime, a survey shows that americans trust in media outlets have steadily declined since jo button took off his engender. he won't be pleased to hear almost a quarter of those surveyed said the no trust in traditional establishment news outlets at all when it comes to accurate and fair reports for the 30 percent that their trust was at a very low level. since the start of the vice presidency, the level of media trust. so for the 16 percent slide, it is all connected. well let's talk about this with chris hedges, who host to show and contact. hello there, chris, and this is the 1st the recent survey research findings why we've seen this lack of trust these days and people get more polarized about tv over there. what's the problem? well, almost every survey then comes out. although they get a little worse comes to the same conclusion and that is,
12:11 pm
that is as you correctly pointed out, a lack of trust in most media outlets. but i think we have to acknowledge that the media outlets are no longer designed to reach abroad audience. they have a very different commercial model now than they did a few decades ago. and that is that they cater to a particular demographic. now that's how they make their money, they slice that demographic, they feed that demographic. what it wants to hear, whether it's true or not. and all media, major media outlets are guilty of this, including my old employer, the new york times for 2 years, slog the russia gate. conspiracy, and then of course, there was nothing there. cnn is even more agree, jesus. and then on the other side, you have fox news. so he's, he's got to make it out a commercial model, but they don't really care whether they have credibility or not,
12:12 pm
with the broader public. and it's more of a fight for the audience. and the last year there was a record highs in consumption of, of tv media. but i suppose you're saying that i haven't heard of a fragment more and try and grab hold of that available audience and become more sensational if you'd like. oh, more polarized. yeah, well, they've been fragmented for a while. 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 for full par was or, and at the whole election of biden was really anybody but trump a bind, remember, had very little popularity, me know, democrats of one point was pulling so in such low numbers during the primaries, they tried to replace him with michael bloomberg. amanda was only when obama interceded to essentially get all of the candidates, except for bernie sanders to resigned at biden,
12:13 pm
was kind of kicked into the nomination. so i, yeah, the, i, you know, that the, the media landscape itself ah, has undergone a kind of see change. and all of this pulling reflects those divisions and the stoking of the antagonisms between the, the, the demographics that are catered to by the major media outlets. so, final question, the goals and question, what can we do out? let's to to try and regain that public trust way to begin with that one. they don't want to regain the trust i. they the, in many ways they love trump back the former head of cbs news at one point famously said i, trump may not be good for america, but he's very good for cbs. i. so they have already found their particular media model. i and trump was a very effective ah agent for increasing their viewership and their revenues because they demonized him not in the,
12:14 pm
in the in outlets such as c n n. and now they're kind of flailing around, searching for something else, but they're not gonna change their model. that model has been established for many years less. hopefully we will. i said final, what i, what of this kind of story was going run of the trump as well that we heard about how the media was entrusted. but of course it, depending which side of the politics you are on your trusted. no, you didn't, right. is it worse or better now on to biden? there is no connection with who's in charge of the top it's, ah, it, well, it's worse in terms of their profits and the size of your viewership, all which of declined, but it hasn't changed. and in many ways they're all waiting for trop, or a trump like figure because that stokes, the animus which is now the core of most news outlets are whether that's demonizing liberals and on one side or demonizing. trump supporters on the other. but that model isn't gonna change. oh,
12:15 pm
the fast flow. well, the media i, which are all part of course chris edge is not to say thanks. been on the program house, the cause of our cesar on contact chub c. so x right next residence to new york city, minnesota voted against a bid to get rid of the local police and replace them was supposedly more benign public safety officials sold by the defend the police story. the a proposal came off for an offices murder of detainees, george floyd last year in cited wide spread protests across the country and demands to defun to police. mm hm. ah.
12:16 pm
well recent polls show that people still have an unfavorable view of the police in the city. many more people wouldn't like the number of officers to be reduced. it seems and that positions especially strong on the black community. so what message is sending the rejection of the referendum may be linked to a surge in violent crimes in the city amid police stuffing shortages. the number of homicides issues already much bigger than in 20. 19 the last year before the rising crime, this no talk to sergeant to see a police officer in house of the reasonable suspicion podcast. hey, thanks to make the times come on live on the programs. kevin. oh, and you're talking to people voted against the move to replace the police department,
12:17 pm
then willis discourage similar efforts in the future or not what you think? well, i hope so because defined the police just as a regular rule has been colossal failure. placing tries to implement the for the police crime has gone up when it's been york chicago in minneapolis in the late. 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 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. yeah. so is this really, could it be considered? this is of a mini referendum if you'd like. only hold the fund, the police movement debate. i hope so. i mean, i'm glad that sanity prevailed in minneapolis. because otherwise, when their streets would have been complete, a us. if you look at it, please leave tried to be on the police. they've actually had to increase the police
12:18 pm
budget for overtime 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. actually fun, the police people's attitude towards the police of the city changed the after the rise in violent crime. there are not you think? i think so. i think once people guy was to be on the, on down the street without the police reality said in the george why situation was very unfortunate. it shouldn't have happened, no cock supporting their children. when he did, he did. however, one bad cough doesn't mean that all police are bad now. so thankfully, sanity prevailed. and like i said, hopefully this is a swing in the right direction. but there is a huge yog touch that they yourself, that need to be more accountability. there's too much inside cover and up going on,
12:19 pm
etc. and it's not really going to be address hasn't been addressed lately. actually has been addressed. you know? no, i always say no. good cop supports any bad cop. no one have a bad cop more than a good talked where mandated report bad policing and corruption employees. so like i said, this one incident was extremely unfortunate and no cop supported by that situation . when it happens, however, now make this as an indictment of all police and say that all police are bad now because this one is, i think is very short sighted. and i think as they turn in the wrong direction, you'll please so see self, you know, all too well what it's like been on the streets that when you're facing a violent crime, what, what, what should change to handle it better? what lessons have been learned really on the front lie and having to deal with it. you've got a difficult job in front of your own life at times. what's changed for you do the job? i mean, me personally, my eyes are way more open as far as what people can are capable of and what they do,
12:20 pm
you know, when you're confronted with evil, right? in your face, you have to adapt to it because there are people out there that need you to get to it. they count on us for their own safety. i've worked in very bad neighborhoods where people near the police, i, you know, the poll showed saw that people are black people, especially in high crime areas. what police out there and ask who should we be listening to? who we should be listening to. you know, they're the ones that confronted everyday that was, that faces at their doorstep. so when you are confronted with a violent crime, you want people are going to have you back the best way to actually fight violent crime. as far as a political standpoint, it's actually support your coughs, have their backs told me that, you know, we support you when you're going up in confronting as evil. do what you have to do to get off the street within reason. so just take our complete so so most of the reasonable suspicion podcasts talking about this recent vote there for the residents in the city minneapolis. thank you for being live on the program. went
12:21 pm
off international 6 perhaps in a victory for drug companies. a california judges rule the for manufacturers can't be held responsible for the states opioid crisis. he says there's no evidence the rise in prescriptions was done to misleading marketing. and it's thought the ruling could set a precedent for similar cases and other states. we got the thoughts of jack bradshaw. he recently became addicted to the pills that he was prescribed. it sets a very dangerous precedent and more importantly, as it sat, this is, this is becoming in america, the very common knowledge that companies like for do pharma, sat around a board room table and made a decision to target blue collar areas in america. areas like southern ohio, eastern kentucky, west virginia, because they knew that their new powerful prescription opioid would flourish. their while the case was the 1st time a drug companies,
12:22 pm
one in over 3000 law suits. it was filed over a crisis, which has claimed the lives of half a 1000000 people in the us. in 20 years. the previous administration declared a nation wide emergency after the number of deaths from an opioid overdose ro, 6 times in the united states. in 2020 a low, more than $9000000.00 were victims of opium misuse, including teenagers and idols, the majority which will prescribe medicines, mostly pain relievers. j. bradshaw telling us 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 cotton for injuries like that there's, i don't think there is a government or, or 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 court to provide these families
12:23 pm
with, with some kind of justice for loved ones that they've lost or loved ones that are still struggling. it's, it's, it's a travesty. promises to protect the earth for a some bishop goals of net 0 by 2050 and giving cash to south africa to help it and it's reliance on coal view and climate. somebody in scotland still in the full go this week, a ping, it's pledge to save the planet with britain's prime minister bars jumps and taking the lead. although that said the u. k. does not currently appear to be holding back home. so it's fossil fuel projects, which is what we're going to talk about now. recent report reveals that around 40 plans in the pipeline seeking approval in the u. k. in the next 4 years, which if approved with nearly triple countries, yearly greenhouse gas emissions. meantime, there's no ongoing dispute over proposed new coal mine specifically in the north west of england. and while bar johnson doesn't support the insists, it's not his job to get involved locals. they say they desperately need that
12:24 pm
project to go ahead. the mine should go ahead. it will be mined in the safest, cleanest drain this way. it can possibly be done. tons of being explored for the 1st coal mine to be opened in the u. k. in 30 years, given 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. of course, hosting that some 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 a green message to the rest of the world, the u. k. government has decided not to intervene with the towns of opening and brand new english coal mine. this really shows the true meaning of so called net 0 . 2050. these vague insufficient targets long into the future basically mean nothing today, but contrary to what some expect, given fears as a potential air pollution, the locals are quite happy to have it. many of them think it could spock a much needed economic revival step forward, really,
12:25 pm
for technology and everything else. a chip issue, my new nadia and i know many, many years now. i saw gone. we doing a job junior here, just wanting to see other 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 mine say that coca cola, which is used to manufacture steel rather than generate energy, is being unfairly maligned by green activists. this is just another piece of the puzzle, is green, greenly we, we are an environmental area. we understand what the problems are. there's no d, i n a is an issue is a problem. we've got nuclear, we've got winds, we've got a hydro that will be common at some point in the future. and thankfully, if we get this my going to as a will be taken. a colton calls from over the to the transport it from america,
12:26 pm
which is couldn't. we've all been served on to think that john cutty sell him, is that we shouldn't open a mind when we're buying all the coal of him. 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 a very small, as i understand quite specialist, a form of coal that's being that would be produced there on will have negligible impact ons of the global coal usage we need to transition our existent 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,
12:27 pm
saying coaching call from the mine would drive forward green energy project. he also insists that the projects will revive the local economy off the curve. it 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. my more british one small from north point, one percent of that one percent the mine will have a huge positive economic impact on the, on the area, etc. i chuckled and investment, this is private money coming in that you took him 160000000 pound into to watch a relatively small community that i'll create 500 direct jobs that are with the spin off of $1500.00 supply chain jobs that will transform people's lives in this area to inquire results the jew at the end of the year, well after the climate debate has moved elsewhere for is johnson said at cop 26, that he didn't support the opening of the mind that he would leave it to the
12:28 pm
planning committees to the side, an indication perhaps of his own desire to not get dragged into a row with a local community desperate for the area once again to see economic regeneration. the sally all see in white haven cumbria. we spoke of our mental journalist about whether or not the british government is actually sticking to its pledge to drop fossil fuels. u. k. present on carbon, seriously, undermined by the government phone actions in the united kingdom. government have agreed that it will not fund new fossil fuels by itself. however, as team united kingdom, financial industry, undefined industry globally will be able to continue to invest in sulfur hills, investment by the united kingdom in global fossil fuels amongst to 15 percent of global investments. and that's where the united kingdom record is really terrible. in that it's center for global finance for fossil fuels. so this little after, for our credibility of president of the of the cop on the other side of europe
12:29 pm
added, she's also dominating headlines and growing phase of a cold winter had baby in spain. officials have only been a pipeline cut off as left the country with a little more than a month's worth of natural gas reserves. recently, algeria shuts off gas applies to spain through a pipeline crossing morocco. this is a bit complicated. a 25 year transit deal was suspended without renewal over a diplomatic spot between the 2 north african countries. and although l cheering authorities have promised to provide more gas to spade, european politicians have already slammed the cutoff, calling it blackmail manipulation for political purposes. meantime, spain, this main gas operator at the moment anyways, trying to calm public panic. the spanish gas system has higher levels of contract and natural gas capacity than in previous winters. and is in a better situation than that of other neighboring countries. with the current situation, there is no indication of a lack of gas supply in the coming months. but felix marino portfolio managers are
12:30 pm
trading in madrid, was supposed to believe spain is at risk of potential gas deficit coming up. space gas supply is not in immediate danger. but it does leave is in a very vulnerable situation. the certainty of price is going up and there is a danger of lack of supply. the situation with the boats is unreliable at the moment, as you know, contain of boats. and the old boats are being stopped. the ships have been 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 their homes. they're not going to heater with solar yet and are going to have a good gas connections with the rest of europe. most of our gas comes from from the south, and our it does leave using a very vulnerable situation. advanced what we're talking about so far. get a hold of the conversation at r t dot com whenever socials call embrace her in half. now we got to great shells 3 now and then depending where you're watching.
