6:04 am
because right now the fires are threatening several villages. we will see just how bad it is and deliver supplies to the people on the ground fighting it and well take off. this isn't scary at all. on the way to the village. the views were stunning, but the closer we got to the village day became somewhat terrifying. first, it's clear skies in an endless horizon. and just moments later, it's a wall of smoke. soon as we land with a whole bunch of heavy machinery, mister defense has a lot of military equipment, vehicles, and trucks and everything to this region because it's the most under threat right now from the flyers. armored personnel carriers, a couple of heavy duty diggers and several trucks. their purpose to create

6:06 am
regions modem and we will work to extinguish the fires, we will do everything we can when we go back to your cursor. and on the way we are once again reminded of just how chaotic situation is with the several more fires and even a new one apparently as we circle around it and the fire washers note as location on their maps. all anom, not bad for my 1st helicopter flight. and of course, as you know, rush is not the only country battling wildfires. volunteers and firefighters in greece are also still fighting the flames. terrific, seen some of the pictures coming back only this drone footage next and showing the extent of the damage caused by fires in recent days and what's left to the end of it. thousands of people have been evacuated from the region. the great p. m apologizing saying they had done everything humanly possible, but it wasn't enough. he also described the situation is a natural disaster of unprecedented proportions. almost 600 wildfires, a building across the country. several european states are trying to help greece

6:08 am
a son was arrested in april 2019 for breaching has failed condition to the u. k. it remains imprisoned in london, but he still wanted espionage charges in the states. he's accused of publishing. hundreds of thousands of leaked documents relating to the galveston and iraq was as well as diplomatic cables. he could face up to 175 years in prison. if he is expedited to america, the case of former labor party leader, jeremy colvin. joining the protest he spoke direct to us should always trying to create a good comes on history. i think it was a history of the chief reading from colonization question, or did people like that again, injustice in progress. i want the freedom to be able to communicate with people and i don't need to be moderated by or any other level. news corp journalism is under
6:09 am
threat to one site, depression journals in many countries. what, what, what is also known as the threats of example, what is news corporation? huge control of most media television, radio and print media and they become a friendship on jen, this behavior. jeremy call been talking to us and another new story in this lunch time. it's one of the most infamous symbols of the vietnam war, agent orange, the highly toxic herbicide and the foliage used by the us military in the campaign . but then the chemical cause, the suffering of hundreds of thousands of people, when the lasting effects haven't been passed out across generations. what you may from the next image is disturbing. ah
6:10 am
ah. the news. i was born in 1975 and i was missing both my arms at the elbow down and my left leg from the knee down. and the hospital that i was born in had never seen anything like that before. so they weren't sure if i was going to live or die. so immediately after i was born, they took me from my mom and flew me to denver colorado. and put me in children's hospital and put me in the incubator with all kinds of needles and monitor to stuff to make sure that everything was going to be okay. and it's made my life pretty difficult growing up because i had to adjust to everything. so the stead of play
6:11 am
still the u. s. government is not accepting responsibility for the damage done by agent orange. he states, there's no scientific evidence linking the toxic substance to adverse health effects. found a vietnam, the son of one veteran chose kelly you heard from earlier, told us of his deep frustration than that lead us won't accept the role in the suffering. if my mom would have been the veteran, my disability would be a 100 percent covered by the v a and they would take full responsibility for it. but since it was my dad, they said that there is no way that it could've affected me. i'm not sure why they won't take responsibility, but as it is right now, over 8000000 people have died from the effects of aging or and there's countless numbers of people born that were disfigured and deformed and they have cancer tumors, and just a list of so many different, but the facts that he can't even really name them all because it's just so many
6:12 am
for us. johnson found himself in the firing line again after dining street spent nearly 100000 pounds on 2 paintings set to be displayed in the prime minister's official london. residence the lavish purchases coming after the u. k. government approved a 20 pound the we cut to the universal credit benefit system, which was intended to support low income families during the pandemic. and this also on top of a pe freeze for teachers and police officers, as well as only a payroll of 3 percent. for those coven, embattled health care work is. the physicians had a field day over it, the prime minister spending priorities. it's always about himself, as government cuts, universal credit, and freezes, frontline nurse police pay. johnson has found more money to treat himself again. and a chess is in desperate need of funding and the pay rise in order to be able to recruit and retain staff and catch up with the enormous backlog of work. so
6:13 am
i think the issue about the paintings or something covering irrelevant my understanding is it's largely paid for through public money rather than donors as the governments and suggested that government is going back down stairs at the root . whereas at the beginning of the coven, we were able to see that when money was needed, it could be found. and in fact, the treasury lenses came up with a loss of money and its initial time to help the n h s. response of the crisis. and now i want to turn the top off again. it's not the 1st time the brace pm found himself in trouble for his expensive home improvements. earlier this year, he faced questions over how pricey downing street renovation were paid for back then the investigation concluded that he acted, quote, unwisely,
6:14 am
but nonetheless had not broken the ministerial code. this time the purchase was justified, as the paintings in question were paid for with a dedicated fund. the government ought collection, helps to promote the creativity of british art and culture. it acquired new works after consulting and securing the approval of an independent expert panel. and the majority of funding for acquisitions comes from philanthropic sources, not taxpayer money. we spoke to a former head of one english and i just trust who told us that the timing of this latest scandal couldn't have been worse. i think is a very poor decision on this occasion. i think there are 2 reasons why bad judgment . firstly, we've just recently gone through a pay or a pay round without nursing stuff where the, the government have been pretty mean in the way that they've approached it. and secondly, of course, this, the overall economic situation. so whether or not these are good paintings and
6:15 am
whether or not that good value for money is not as important as what does it look like? what do people think when they see the economy is not very good. we've just denied frontline and h her stuff, a decent play. rise and the prime ministers hanging too expensive paintings in the sitting room. number 10, it just looks bad. fly from all his worldview centers, kevin. oh, in this out here with you, and thank you for your company. this is ahead. let me tell you about it. the pentagon has been pressuring hollywood movie makers, primarily in betraying the us military and a favorable light. according to newly obtained documents. we will tell you more, very shortly. i ah
6:16 am
me ah ah, i use join me every 1st a on the alex simon show, and i'll be speaking to guess in the world, the politics sport. business. i'm show business. i'll see you then. in the
6:17 am
the depends again, there's been routinely bullying. a hollywood movie may cause inter betraying the us military to favorable light according to nearly obtained documents. it also often demand script at its 2 with one tv series even getting it swings clipped by us top bras. constantino's cough reports propaganda on the silver screen. so the d o. d 's been waging war. the creative freedom is the script writers and directors. perhaps the most blatant case is the 200-1900 c b s. trauma serious. the code about marine corps lawyers, which was canceled soon after elise got back. we're headed towards the as it turns out, the military saw the 1st effort i was before they went on air and was upset about a storyline show and a marine turned congress man accused of brutally execute and then iraqi civilian. and another service man who killed
6:18 am
a spanish citizen while drunk driving marine corps leadership was apparently provided advance copies of several of the episodes and was displeased enough that they communicated what they sore serious shortcomings in the depiction of the marines, cbs television has indicated a desire to correct the problems in future episodes by accepting deity assistance as a 1000 pentagons official web page, the department has a long standing relationship with hollywood. what it keeps quiet about is how many tradeoffs had cost to filming community. remember, homeland an american long run and asked us thriller the couple for a week or 2 when according to the files, the producers asked the us army to support the final season, filming, but initially were turned down by the military. after they saw the script on the entertainment office is currently in talks of the producers of homeland who've asked the modern army support, initial request is declined due to
6:19 am
a storyline that was not an accurate portrayal of soldiers. sherman responded with some significant edits to the problematic areas. army has agreed to provide support as requested. show runners responded with significant ad. it's what they were. we don't know why. what we do know is that how one's final season speculates on a full story that the russians fund the tally about insurgents and also plays up the consequence of the wes withdrawal from again, it's then sounds like something that american army bosses might like. the pentagon doesn't always get its way though the same internal report suggests christopher no one a hot shot hollywood director, simply snubbed the military as they showed their appetite for a script at its continued discussions for supportive chris nolan thriller. merry go round working title support request, it includes use of all spray and clinic f frames and g p. an air force of indicated interest. if military characterizations are rewritten, emphasizing military mission request for support of chris snowden. thriller,

merry go round working title. seem to have stopped likely causes that produce a direct, were reluctant to make changes needed to gain the o. d support. others like captain marbles co director as an a, bowden and wine flag had to cozy up to the defense department report lee. they had lunch with air force, top command, and took part in a professional development session, whatever that means. before the films release, one marvel movies are being branded as military propaganda in the media. more and more. the internal reports coverages. 2 years of pentagon, hollywood cooperation from 2017 to 2019, yet they cite scores of famous movies and tv shows that gain support or a green light from the military, including former is the last night fast and furious. a tom cruises ta gone to the list goes on. but those are the films that made it to the big screens despite the it is a lot of stories like a documentary on guantanamo bay. trials have been rejected completely and never
6:21 am
came to be followed after today's resignation of new york governor to cromer that he quit off to new york's attorney general concluded that the governor had sexually harassed 11 women and no jo biden's being dragged over the coals. his previous support for cuomo, your governor, new york, on one hell of a job. i think he's just sort of a goal standard for the hell of a job. and i mean both on everything from access to voting, to infrastructure, to a whole range of things. that's why it's so sad. can you really say, until he's accused sexually harassing? the question is, did he do a good job and infrastructure? i was the question he did. i'll personally okay, separate to to know and i was asked a specific question and requote most be 9 to 5 for me to movement very cause he and
6:22 am
his fellow democrats back club had previously given impassioned speech is about respecting women and their personal space to sheep in or ridicule the pain, a woman suffers from the sexual attack, is disgusted. i often will give them a grip of the arm, a pat on the face to touch on the stomach a slap on the back. it's my way of saying, i see you. i appreciate you and i thank you to 2nd guess how a woman should acted after a sexual attack is sexist and disgusted. i do hug and kiss people casually. women and men.
6:23 am
i have done it all my life and the not so distant past. cuomo was going to women's marches and speaking up in support of the me to movement, condemning sexual harassment, talking about the rights of women. but at this point, we have 11 women who are speaking up and saying that andrew cuomo engaged in inappropriate behavior with them. now andrew cuomo has resigned but insist that he is innocent. he says, he did nothing wrong. it would simply be impossible for him to continue governing in this atmosphere created by these allegations, the situation and moment. i'm not about the facts, it's not about the truth. this is about politics and our political system today is too often driven by the extreme. twitter has become the public square for policy debate. there was a new phenomenon with its happening today. lawsuits. 7 involving sexual dalliance
6:24 am
is occur when somebody denies them. so then you follow up with defamation suit. you don't so anymore for what they did you. so for them denying what they did. so there are, he had said some pretty interesting things as far as the various women who have come forward and said he touched me here and did this. so this is not in any way done there that this is, i hate to say it's epstein, leon black fever. i mean this is, this is what we're used to in our zeitgeist. now, cuomo says this is politically motivated and that the only evidence is a bunch of tweets on social media. however, while most supported this very same movement, the me to movement in similar situations, and many critics of me to have pointed out that all it takes in order to have a politician, step down is allegations the word of accusers, as well as social media outrage. there's really no procedure,
6:25 am
there's no way of determining guilt or innocence. the accusations, fly, and careers are destroyed. now, many have pointed out to me to seem to be primarily targeting, you know, republicans and conservatives, donald trump. but cuomo is a democrat, and his accusers are democrats and the new york state attorney general lateesha james, who issued the report that seems to have been the last straw, was also a democrat, as damaging to the democratic party. and the, and the democratic party mil. yeah, the democrats weaponized the me to movement, they used to devastating effect against red cavanaugh. it was a very powerful weapon that was brought to bear. and now it's been brought to bear on one of their own is acutely embarrassing to have cuomo, who was a cheerleader for the me to movement down to fall the him to the movement. and i think these, these, these accusations are backfiring, people are going to be very careful if for bring in charges like this again. and
6:26 am
this whole episode leaves a very bad taste and everybody's mouth say it's a big diverse re day. actually. it's been a year to day since this put new v cobra. the vaccine was registered here in russia since said, almost 70 countries have adopted the job on the list continues to grow. ah ah. ready but despite his proven track record and the ongoing sort of new, more, very le karone of our astray, sputnik v continues to face problems getting accepted. the job still hasn't been approved by the world health organization, all the european medicines agency. we are still struggling with me ologist michael
6:27 am
tool, why it's taking these organizations so long to give the vaccine the green light. it's not particularly clear why. for example, the world health organization hasn't provided emergency authorization. they have done for 2 of the chinese kuranda back and sign up on that policy. and that's why agreeing to, to speak to the story in general about what me because i felt it was important that people in the west under do, which is a very good thing produced in russia. it was developed by excellent wilbur downs research institute, access to vaccines that's tried or is not as good as it should be, given our ability to purchase them. i think the government acted too late to order enough vaccines to where you are in the situation of only about 20 percent of
6:28 am
people. and i have been fully explanation that 40 percent of the c one i'm using look melvin's in lockdown. both health and economic logic going in hard and then coming out of locked down pretty quickly. yes, sooner the better i. that's it from me, kevin. i called him bracy for the afternoon, dan hawkins, after that super lineup to keep you posted through today. and a few new stories, kevin, as you heard as well to talk about this is all the international. my name's kevin, in for me, in the team. wherever you're watching, what have you do in a great day? i look forward to talking to you all that technology should work for people. a robot must obey the orders given it by human beings. accept where's the short or
6:29 am
conflict with the 1st law show your identification. we should be very careful about artificial intelligence. at the point obviously is too great trust or rather than fear the take on various jobs with artificial intelligence. we'll summoning the demon a little bout must protect his own existence with the the, the the vacuum and everything in to job the job. i can better understand your job
6:30 am
can be just fine. well, i don't even know if y'all might want to work on it. pretty much any questions on it? for me, i want to just about what you wanna watch when you're going to be tied on join me, but i got it working. turn all good. i can put an offer me going to be as long to that one needed by hand. why would you need any should.
