CBC News: The National | Canada could have COVID vaccine by Christmas | Dec. 7, 2020
Good evening i'm andrew ching and i'm adrian arsenault, tonight ottawa, says there should be vaccines. For christmas. Newfoundland, and labrador, is one of the 14, vaccine, distribution, sites, thank god. Provinces. Begin spelling, out who will get them first. One thing that we can urgently. Do is simply, do more. Testing. Findings from a new long-term, care home report. I'm definitely. Feel. Almost defeated, at times, the stress of covid19. On canadian. Gps. I just want to let you know mariam. You are the winner. And an alberta high schooler wins a global, science, contest. We're gonna tell my dad. The big news. Don't worry about tuition, dad, she just won a quarter, of a million, bucks. This, is the. National. Well in the fight against covet 19, canada, will soon have new weapons, to fight back, the first, doses, of the pfizer, vaccine, should be here soon, earlier, than anticipated. The prime minister, says a quarter of a million, by the end of december, the start of an inoculation. Campaign. That will stretch well into 2021.. Welcome news to be sure but, far from the tens of millions, of doses, required. To get things back to normal in this country. Now receiving, vaccines, and then getting them into people's arms are two very different things david cochran shows us what we know so far. We're not out of the crisis, yet. But now. Vaccines, are coming. It's the news canadians. Have been waiting for, first shipments, of the pfizer, vaccine. Should soon be here. Pending health canada, approval. The first shipment of doses. Is tracking, for delivery. Next, week. Those deliveries, will bring up to, 249. 000 doses before the end of december. At two doses per person, that's enough for about 125. 000, canadians. With the provinces. Getting per capita, shares. We're still, very far from having, the millions. Of vaccines, we need. For mass. Immunization. Another factor pfizer's, vaccine, is delicate, and needs to be stored at extremely, cold temperatures. Which means it will only ship to 14, distribution. Centers, which have the freezers, and the people, to handle it newfoundland and labrador, is one of the 14, vaccine distribution, sites prime minister, trudeau. Just announced. Thank god. A sentiment, others may soon express. As once the provinces, get their doses. The first people, can quickly, get their shots. It's a matter of, a day or two. Is my understanding. So that's a relatively. Fast, process. Those first needles just the first steps toward the goal of three million canadians, vaccinated. By the end of march, and then ramping, up throughout, 2021. Long process, that was expected, to start in january. Now potentially. Just days away. Until. We were able to sit down here today. And announce. Firm. Delivery. Pending, the final approval, by, uh health canada, uh we. Wanted not to get people's hopes up. Okay so david, correct me if i'm wrong those initial doses are only going to the provinces. Right so what's happening with the territories, and indigenous, communities, yeah so the pfizer vaccine, is a real challenge for the north and for remote communities, it can destabilize. If it's moved too much it needs to be stored at -70.
So It's not a great traveler. And what that means is that the territories. And remote indigenous, communities, they're going to have to wait for sturdier, vaccines. Like the moderna, vaccine, which is easier to ship easier to store easier to handle. And it's important to note that major general fortan, said today that that is what the territories, requested. Based on their limited capacities, and also that the prime minister, promised, that, remote, northern, and indigenous, communities, would get priority, to doses. Of those next, easier to travel vaccines. David cochran thank you very much, you got it. Quebec, is set to receive, up to 4 000, initial vaccine, doses, next, week, its health minister, says many will go immediately. To long-term, care residents, those, hit hardest by covet 19.. Those four boxes, will allow, us, to vaccinate. 2 000 people, they will be deployed. In. Two csld. So that's really, our, first test. Dubai says up to 28, 000 quebecers. Should be immunized, by january, 4th as more doses, come in, at the top of the list people in long-term, care homes. Private, seniors, homes and those in isolated. And indigenous, communities, this is a plan similar to ontario's. We will go for example, towards, the people in long-term, care homes, who are in the hot zones, and we'll go into places where the government of ontario, has had to offer their support in the past. Past nine months or so. And that includes, vulnerable, seniors, along with their care workers, adults in indigenous, communities. And retirement, homes, and those who receive, chronic, home health care, all are part of the first, of a, three, phase plan to vaccinate, this province, phase one is expected, to take two or three months depending on how fast ontario, gets its doses. A long-term care homes account for four out of five, coveted deaths, in canada, one of the biggest operators, of those homes has reviewed, what went wrong during the first wave, of the pandemic. And as alan morrow tells us it points the finger of blame, elsewhere. My grandfather, is the most. Resilient. Strong and gracious, human being, i think i will ever know. That's made it even harder for emily lakowicz, to be separated, from 90 year old heinz, zebel. Locked down in a rivera, run home in ottawa. Where kovid has claimed, 61. Lives. We have seen. Declines. In him. Physically. Emotionally. He certainly, expresses, to me daily that he is lonely. A loneliness, only deepening, as the second, wave grows. Today rivera, one of canada's, largest, long-term, care operators, looked back on the first wave, releasing, this report. Detailing, the perfect storm, leading to the pandemic's. Toll in the spring, when 286. Rivera, residents, died across, canada. Chronic, understaffing. Multi-resident. Rooms, and delays, in getting protective, gear to homes, made for a deadly mix, says the report. Its authors, are urging, all provinces, to start testing, anyone, entering, a long-term, care facility. One thing that we can urgently, do to protect, long-term, care residents. Is simply, do more. Testing, the report places much of the blame on provincial, governments, and public health officials. Rivera, itself comes out relatively. Unscathed. Even as the provider, faces a class action lawsuit. Alleging, negligence. They are not innocent, from any of the outcomes that have come out of the first wave, it is their ultimate, responsibility. To keep their workers safe to keep their, residents, safe if you are understaffed. If you, are underpaid. If you are under trained.
How Is anybody, supposed to do the best job possible. A pressing, question, fueling, her anxiety, i'm scared. That i will never be able to hug my grandfather. Again. I'm scared that he's going to die alone. But they do all they can to make sure their grandfather. Never, feels. Alone, ellen morrow cbc, news. Toronto. In ontario, daily, case rates, lead the country, and are still trending, up and the government, is warning that turning things around will depend on actions, taken in the coming days. I know people, are. Looking forward, to the vaccine, being ready and may see it as a situation, that you don't need to take care anymore, you really, really, do. Ontario's, health minister telling people to enjoy, christmas, with members, of the immediate. Household. Only. The number of new cases today. 1925. So that makes three straight, days of record-breaking. Numbers. When we think of the medical, impact of the virus we may think of ventilators. Of overflowing, emergency, rooms and icus. But covet 19, touches, family, doctors, too, vicodopia. Shows us that family practices, under pressure mean pressure throughout, the system. He's a new doctor in one of canada's, poorest, neighborhoods. Known as park x which has high rates of covet 19.. I'm not going to lie i'm definitely. I, definitely, feel. Almost defeated, at times. Asylum, seekers and recent, immigrants, are a big part of sherwani's, practice. Most patients, consult with him over the phone which is a struggle, not just because of language, but trying to diagnose, symptoms, when he can't examine, his patients. Now what i'm i'm seeing is when, you know people are consulting with abdominal, issues. Is that i'm going straight to ordering ultrasound, straight ordering blood tests. And i know that's, also, a strain on the system. Remote, family medicine, has improved, access, to health care for some, but this psychiatrist. Who treats other doctors, says many are more worried than ever about their patients. Just to get those nuances, that you know would be much readily, uh. Seen in person, but you don't want to miss anything you want to make sure that. You fully understand what the patient is saying, without. The help of all the body language you would have in the office. An even bigger challenge, when patients, are elderly, like this doctors, she's crying. Mood wise how do you think she goes. Dr iris gorfinkel, says she's also sending her patients for more frequent tests, and referrals. And wait times for x-rays, ultrasounds, and blood tests are getting longer. That's on top of the long-term, needs of some covid, patients. Instantly, you're you're referring to a cardiologist. You're referring to a respirologist. Like do the math in your mind about what's happening. There, they may have some blood problems, so it could be a hematologist. If they've lost their sense of smell or taste. You're talking about a neurologist. Which often leads to more tests, in a system, that's already, taxed. Blood test requisition. Vicodia. Cbc, news toronto. British columbia is extending its widespread, ban on social gatherings, through the holiday, season. If you're used to having multiple. Family members, come and go over christmas, and, getting together and having those, large dinners, together. Now you need to do it remotely. These holidays. Are going to be different, and they need to be different. The announcement comes as the province registered. 2020. New cases, over the past three days, along with 35, new deaths. Meanwhile, officials are looking into a covet 19 outbreak. At a mink farm in bc's fraser valley. It's unclear, how the virus was transmitted, but concerns, are growing because the virus, has been known to spread between mink, and humans. Greg rasmussen, explains. Bc's, fraser valley has 14, mink farms, and eight people on one of them have tested positive, for covid19. Authorities, aren't releasing the location, but say the farm is locked down, so it is of great concern, for us and we are working closely with work safe bc. To ensure that all of the measures, on the farm are being done appropriately. In denmark. 17. Million, animals were called after it was found covid, 19 was going back and forth between mink and people, mutating, along the way. The fear is those mutations. Could make the virus, resistant, to vaccines.
And Treatments, our antibodies. That we are going to develop by vaccination. Or natural, exposure. May not work because the, now, the the structure, of the virus. Changed, and now. It's, not recognized. By the. Antibodies. Testing is underway to see if the disease has spread from the bc workers, into the mink at the farm. About a million mink pelts are produced, in canada, every year. Industry, representatives. Say biosecurity. Is taken seriously. And the risk to people, is low, fortunately, we see some activist groups that, have long opposed mink farming. And, and would like to end it who are jumping on this and exploiting, this situation, for their own purposes. To try to say we should just shut down the mink farms the united states has had several outbreaks, on mink farms, but no widespread. Coal. This lab in wisconsin. Is involved in testing, and tracing, the disease. We get very concerned, about, viruses, moving back and forth between people and animals, what's their absolute, risk of make i think, the jury is still out on that. We haven't noticed, the mutations. That. The danish, saw, he says it's important, because mink and their relatives, are similar to humans, in ways that make them vulnerable, to covid19. And other respiratory. Infections. Greg rasmussen, cbc, news. Vancouver. For pei, the goal isn't just to keep people from getting, critically, ill it is to keep kovit, off the island. Entirely. And by that measure, today there is some evidence there's a problem. Another, four new cases were announced, too many when the aim is covet, zero. The island, has now seen more cases in the past week, than it had in the preceding. Seven. At testing, centers today, long, lineups. After officials, asked every charlottetown, resident, in their 20s to get tested. The hunt is on to find, every chain of transmission. And break it. Staying in atlantic canada, reaction remains, divided, tonight, after three people were charged friday in connection to the deadly mass shooting, in nova scotia this past april. Kayla hounsell takes a closer look. The gunman's, common law partner, told police she escaped, his attack, and hid in the woods while chaos. Erupted, around, her, in the following days the rcmp. Described, her as a victim. It was a significant, incident, it was a significant, assault.
Now The mounties, say they have charged, lisa banfield, her brother and brother-in-law. With providing the gunman, with ammunition. But police say the three didn't have any prior, knowledge of gabriel wartman's, actions. We've gotten contact, from feminists, all across canada, really upset. This advocate, says she's concerned, about the message, banfield, is suing, wartman's, estate. In her statement of claims she said she suffered, physical, emotional, and psychological. Injuries. Often, women who are in abusive, relationships. Are coerced. Into criminal activity. And how this is going to be a chilling effect on women that are in. Extremely, violent relationships. Trusting the police and coming forward. But for the families, of the 22, victims. News of the charges. Is welcome. They have very little, information. About, anything. There's a sense of of relief. Many of the families felt that. You know the. Banfield. Part of the story, has been a missing piece of the puzzle. This criminologist. Says charging a victim is fraught with problems. I think the public will expect. Any surviving, people who assisted the shooter. Be held accountable, i think that's very reasonable, the rcmp. Is refusing, to talk about any of this, citing a pending, public inquiry. I don't see how providing. Clarity. On some key issues of public interest. Is a disservice. To. What may or may not come out on a forthcoming, inquiry. The inquiry, will examine the police, response, to the shootings, the steps they took to inform, victims, families, and the public, and the role of gender-based. Violence. The final report, is not expected. For another two years. Kayla hounsell cbc, news, halifax. Police in toronto have charged a man in connection with two nooses, left at a construction. Site, they were found by two black workers, back in june. On friday, police arrested, 34-year-old. Jason lahaye, who is now facing several counts of criminal harassment. Police say they're investigating, similar, incidents, across the city. A group of academics. At the university, of windsor, has called today a day of mourning. Triggered, by what they say is an institutional. Problem with racism. As chris ensign, explains. Some students, are reporting, not just a climate, of discrimination. But now one of fear. I myself have had issues of anti-black racism, in the law school. Being harassed. Josh lemurs, is vocal about his experience, as a black, student, on campus. Calling for change, met by death threats that the university, of windsor, is now investigating. You know i, feel pretty unsafe. And if this isn't dealt with properly, my question is is this about to be the next year and a half i have left at university of windsor. There have been a series, of incidents at this school, this year two professors, have apologized, for using the n-word, in class while discussing, course material, and police are investigating. Members of this fraternity. Now permanently, closed, for allegedly, making sexist, and racist, remarks. A black student was banned from campus while the school investigated. A fight the university, later concluded, he acted in self-defense. And apologized. But the other student, was never punished. They're all part of a spectrum. To me hence we need a day of mourning, to educate. White people, and people who don't notice, the racism. Against black people, to tell them like hey. Just because you don't notice it doesn't mean it's not happening, as student groups on campus. We are, witnessing. In its entirety. How, um, you know black student, voice, their their voices are being ignored. The university. Says it is taking steps to combat, anti-black. Racism, including, hiring, 12 black faculty, members. By 2023. Adding, it's clear that we need to move faster, it comes after continued, calls by faculty, groups for change, and acknowledgement. Of the cost, this has, for black students. What we're forgetting, is that. Putting these issues on the table, actually.
Has Costs for them right from, their reputation. In terms of their future careers. To. How their community, is reacting to them faculty, call the steps taken by the school, slow, but encouraging. They want to see things, sped up if not the days, of mourning, will continue. Hinting, that activism. Will, ramp up, chris hensing cbc, news, windsor. National, chief perry belgaard, of the assembly of first nations, has said he won't seek re-election, next summer. Bell guard has led the organization. For six years. The prime minister, today called him a tireless. Advocate. The assembly of first nations represents, more than 600. Communities. Tonight we continue, our investigation, into canada's, pandemic. Spending. It was the largest, amount of money we've ever received in our, bank account. Ahead on the national, we follow the money, and turn up some questions, about how the cash was handed out. Donald trump appears, to dump, fox news, and find a new favorite, they're primarily. Producing. Propaganda. And the alberta high schooler who just won a quarter, million, dollars. I just had a lot of time over, quarantine. And i just. Decided, to. Enter, the pandemic, science project that paid off, we're back into. Welcome back, so we've learned canada will get its first coveted 19 vaccines before the end of the month it's a step, one, of a much larger, rollout, but it wasn't that long ago canada was faced with a similar, challenge, now think back, to 2009. That's when the world was hit by h1n1. Maybe you remember it as swine flu. The scale, of that pandemic. Was very different, even by the end officially, recorded, deaths in canada. In the hundreds, not the thousands, but, at the time canada launched what was its largest, immunization. Effort, ever. It was ambitious, but it hit bumps in the road almost immediately, canada was relying on just one, vaccine manufacturer, for starters which meant a limited supply, it also lacked the manpower, to get those vaccines, into people which meant long waits. So what lessons. Have we learned and how might this pandemics, vaccine roll out be different, well dr allison mcgear, is an infectious, diseases specialist, and knows exactly what healthcare providers, were faced with during h1n1. Because. She was there uh dr mcgear hello to you, maybe i'll just start with the first question, of. What keeps you up at night. This time around this pandemic, this vaccine rollout. So what what actually worries me the most about this vaccine, rollout. Is how. Well we'll do about getting information. To canadians. So they're confident, in the vaccine, that, the logistics. We can handle will be pain there will be long waits there's all sorts of, bad things that go with it, but it's all manageable. But this is a new vaccine. It's. Different than vaccines, we've tried before, people are going to be worried about it and we need to get a lot of information to a lot of people in a really short period of time, to make this vaccination, program work. So that answer actually surprises, me a little bit i i expected the logistics, to be, the heavier lift here i mean even just in manufacturing. And procurement, i mean. Sure, we we've got, several. International. Suppliers, so maybe lots of eggs and lots of different baskets, but, without, any, real direct control, over any of them isn't that concerning.
Well, Of course everything's a concern, and and logistics, and procurement. Are are really challenging, i i didn't say they were going to be easy you just asked me what was i was worried all right. It is going to be hard on the internet we've got a lot of good people working on it, um, and and a lot of will, to, to make the system work so, is it going to be bumpy, absolutely. Um you know it, it's not going to go perfectly, smoothly. But, it it will go. On the other hand. People's, anxieties. About getting a vaccine, particularly. When we've all kind of, gotten a little bit used to cove it's not as scary as it used to be, doesn't seem as dangerous, in some ways. Um. May mean that that we have a hard time. Getting information, to people, so that they get their vaccine. Are, are there more. Differences. Between, h1n1. And covid. Than similarities. I mean like are there sort of direct lessons, that, that you can think of or that we can draw. From you know a little over 10 years ago and apply them this time around. So. Yeah for sure there are lessons you know that that was a very big program, it was run primarily, by public health i think the people who did, logistics, for the 2009. Program, and and figured out, how to get those clinics up and running. That's very useful no question. On the other hand, this was a very, different, vaccine, you know we the, regular flu vaccine. Although. It felt like it took a while to come it was actually only a matter of weeks to get all of the vaccine. Availability. In and so. This is going to be much more challenging, because it's going to go on for longer we're going to have to be, more targeted, in our initial vaccine, use, vaccine, storage, is a big issue, getting two doses, into people is another, big problem with it so. Um this is actually a much bigger logistical, challenge, than, than we faced in 2009. Dr mcgear your insights are always. Needed, and appreciated. Thank you for your time. Pleasure to talk to you take care. Next we continue, to track the federal government's, pandemic. Spending. It was the largest, amount of money we've ever received, in our, bank account. A cbc, news investigation. Continues, to follow hundreds, of billions, of dollars, right after the break. I think these koalas, are symbolic, to so many people. Fourteen. Koalas. Badly burned in australia's, bushfires, earlier this year, are back, in the wild, they'd been airlifted, out for months of treatment, and recovery. Then after getting their climbing strength back they were fitted with tracking, collars and brought back home. A senior vet described, seeing the koalas, run up a tree as. Just the. Best. Welcome back, covet 19, has pushed, federal, spending, to record, levels and a cbc news investigation. Is tracking, that money. The big spend, looks at the, 240. Billion, dollars, allocated. In the pandemics, first eight months we have two stories from that investigation. For you tonight starting, with shayna luck, on the impact, millions, of dollars have made, to women's shelters across the country, and how one small, team may have found a new way of supporting, them. For 10 months caitlyn geiger bardswitch, has been working from her ottawa, home to fight a pandemic. But not covid19. Some have called it the shadow pandemic. Domestic, violence. A threat making lockdown, a dangerous, time for women. The federal minister for women put it starkly. And his. Most, powerful, tool, isolation. Is now endorsed. By the state. The government knew it had to get money to women's shelters. Fast, but how. Soon the phone rang at women's shelters, canada. Would they take on distributing. 20 million dollars, to their network, of 500, shelters. It was the largest, amount of money we've ever received, in our, bank account.
Women's Shelters, canada, does research, and advocacy. Not funding. This was entirely. New, but they got to work, you know i was only five people we were a small but mighty team and that we could do it if we put in a bit of the extra hours like we could physically, do it. They contacted, shelters, like this one in sheddiac, new brunswick, where the funds helped pay for ppe. And more staff to answer, desperate, calls. If they're not able to leave the house, and the perpetrator, is there. You know they're making a phone call to us and hiding in their closet, so, it becomes, really difficult. Women's shelters canada distributed, between thirty two thousand, and ninety thousand dollars to shelters, depending, on what services, each offered, the only exceptions, were shelters, in indigenous, communities, and in quebec. Which also got money but through a different process. People who work in the sector are applauding, how quickly the money flowed, and the way it slashed, away red tape. It was historic. You know where you know they had this money and needed, to disperse, it to all the shelters, across canada, it was a. Unique. Process. A process, that's soon to be repeated. There is more money to come before christmas. After the federal government announced a further 50 million to shelters, and sexual assault centers. Shaina lux cbc, news halifax. The indigenous. Tourism. Industry, was considered, one of canada's, fastest, growing sectors. Until coveted 19., now ottawa, offered 16, million dollars, to help, but as jorge barrera, shows us many are now questioning. How the money was doled out. A mischievous. Nudge. From an ojibwe, spirit horse at t.j, stables, in southern ontario. None of these horses, have ever had a rope on them. Owners, terry and john jenkins, made tough choices. To protect their prize heard. They sold off other breeds. As business, plunged, amid the pandemic. We sold. 20, horses, imagine, that. Like many in their industry. They asked the indigenous, tourism, association. Of canada, known as itac, for help. A group tapped by the federal government, to administer. 16, million dollars in relief, funds. We had about 830. Or so applications, in the country. Itac, got to work. Their first order of business. A 25. 000, bonus for ceo, keith henry. He says the money was part of a new employment, deal. And fair, well i think what the board did is they got an independent, opinion about what was fair market for my position. For some. Henry's, and itac's, work was a lifesaver. That stimulus. Basically, kept our heads above, water. But others saw problems. Suggestions. That the funds were shared unequally, across provinces. This founding itec, board member filed a formal complaint, with the federal government. After he crunched the numbers himself. So it didn't seem to be, a level playing field manitoba, did, nova scotia, did. And, there was a question of money that simply came, too late, we didn't receive the funds, until late october, well our entire tourism.
Season, Is over. On the whirlpool, island reserve. The border shutdown, devastated, josh white's outfitter, operation. He only received his full promise, 25, thousand dollars in november. When someone tells you you're getting a check in two weeks. And that's in september. The whole uncertainty, of it all is just it gets to you. Henry says. There's a simple explanation. This is a very. Significant. Amount of volume of work for, basically the handful of staff that we have it's a pandemic, and we're trying desperately, to save our businesses, in any way we can. Indigenous, services, canada says it's reviewing the complaints, against itac. To determine, whether they warrant. A full investigation. Jorge barrera, cbc, news. Ottawa. You can find more on the big spend, on our website, including. A detailed breakdown, of which programs, got how much of that 240. Billion dollars in spending, it is all at cbc, dot ca. News. Now kovit 19 has generated so many personal, stories, and we're capturing, some in a series, that we think of as pandemic, diaries, tonight's comes from, ralph chodry whose small business is pushing through a second, lockdown. Hi i'm ralph chodri. From baseline, sports, here in north york toronto. When the pandemic, first struck and we got put into lockdown. It was a difficult, time. We offered training, retail. And we had to stop all those services. We didn't know what we needed to do, to take the next steps other than that we knew we had to pivot some way. We service a lot of local baseball. Organizations. We made it through the year because of our great. Support from our community. Now that we're in a second lockdown. We're better informed, we're, better planned. Our leadership, team made sure that we were ready to go, um for this for the second round of lockdown. But uh don't get me wrong this is it still hurts a lot. It's not easy. To uh to shut your doors down. And. And you know just just call it a day for a month and a half. We'll get through this as long as we do it for each other. Stay together stay strong. Stay positive. Next why donald trump appears to be changing, the channel, on fox news. Look susan, i'm not a journalist, i don't pretend to be one and i've said that over and over again, the idea is to inform viewers. What's really behind, a shift, in the president, and his supporters. Right after the book. But first after, 70, years, ikea. Is retiring. Its popular, paper, catalog, citing its environmental, priorities, and the global trend towards online. Shopping. At its peak in 2016. Ikea printed more than 200. Million, copies in dozens of languages, around the world. But these days, it seems more people prefer to point and click than to brave those long lineups. Honestly who can blame them though covet 19 restrictions, have also changed the game a bit, the swedish furniture, giant says its 2021. Issue released this past summer. Will be its last. Rudy is doing well i just spoke to him he's doing very well. No temperature. Of course donald trump is talking about his personal, lawyer rudy giuliani. Who is being treated, in hospital for covid, 19.. That will sideline, him from his, losing effort to overturn, the results of last month's, presidential.
Election. It is a safe bet trump, won't leave the presidency. Quietly. And that he will continue, to use the media, to help make his case but there is speculation. He's seeking, a new, friendlier. Outlet. Our senior correspondent, susan ormerson, looks at some potential, choices. President trump refusing. To concede. Inside, the white house president trump still fumes. Don't talk to me that way, you're just a you're just a lightweight. Railing against the 2020. Result. Calling out traitors, and commending, his patriots. As the media, continue, to critique, his failure, to conceive. Will he ever concede. Even, fox news arizona. Are you. 100. Sure of that call the first on election, night to call arizona, for biden. Which sent trump into a fury. Since then a steady stream of tweets, denigrating. Fox. Fox news daytime, ratings, have completely. Collapsed, they forgot, the golden, goose. Urging his followers, to change the channel, fox news daytime, virtually, unwatchable. Watch oan. And newsmax, or almost anything, else, and retweeting. Actor randy quaid's, bizarre, video. Fox, news, daytime. Ratings. Have, completely. Collapsed. Good evening welcome to washington. The number one cable channel has certainly, not collapsed. But in trumpland. Hardcore. Loyalists. Are disgruntled. Even fox news is crooked. After the election, supporters, surged, into washington. Tens of thousands. Their loyalty. Firm. Some eager to switch to media that parrots, trump's, claims. The vote was stolen, and he won. We are seeing a shift, that is coming from a kind of revolt, against the conservative, media establishment. And we see that mostly, with something like fox news. Nicole, hemmer a political, historian, has written extensively. About conservative, media in the far, right. And that is really empowering. These other right-wing, outlets, newsmax. One american news on television. But even conservative, talk radio as well. To, kind of go after fox, and try to claim to be, a better authority, a better version of conservative, media. Than fox news is and when you say better, in their eyes what's better. Um it's more pro-trump, graham, ledger. Don't believe this garbage, in the mainstream, media, oan. One america, news is a digital, channel on the conservative, fringe. Newsmax. A small, cable, player, trump's, promotion, is pumping, up newsmax. Numbers. Programs, like greg kelly's, show which reached, over a million the week after the election, the mainstream, media, relentlessly.
Convincing, Us trying to at least, that this thing is over. How many times have they tried to convince, us, that donald, trump. Was finished. Also, on newsmax. Spicer, and company. Co-hosted, by the former white house press secretary. Sean spicer. We saw, an absolutely. Astronomical. Rise. Starting the week before the election. You remember, spicer, who in his first, briefing, chastised, the press for misreporting. The size of trump's inaugural, crowd. These attempts to lessen the enthusiasm. Of the inauguration. Are shameful. And wrong. After six months he was out, wrote a couple of books. Did a and. On, dancing with the stars. He started his talk show on newsmax. In march. I wonder lindsey, if, we knew. What we know today. In terms of vaccines. The stock market and so much more. How much different the election would be, look susan i'm not a journalist i don't pretend to be one and i've said that over and over again, the idea is to inform viewers plain and simple but i'm not i'm very clear about where i stand personally. I work for the president i work for the republican, national committee i'm a proud conservative. But we have democrats, on the show all the time did president trump lose this election. My thought is he's got a case. Whether or not it's strong or not i don't know i'm not an attorney, i haven't seen the evidence, what i'm trying to get at sean, is whether you, believe. That, joe biden is the president-elect. At this, juncture, if the president overturns. These electoral. Votes in this thing because of some impropriety. Because of a constitutional. Question, what have you then he will have won, does that likely i think it's an uphill battle there's no question about it but does he have a legal, right to pursue these challenges, yes. Newsmax's. Ceo, chris ruddy, is close, to trump. Who called him two weeks ago to congratulate. Just incredible, the ratings you're getting. Newsmax. Still not acknowledging. Trump lost. What's happening inside newsmax, is this going to be a vehicle, for donald trump when he leaves the white house, chris has been building up newsmax, for quite some time and i think he uh he as he's mentioned in the past he'd. Love having the president come on as a guest in some, way shape or form or but he's not looking, for a partnership. Behind, barricades. In construction, for biden's, inauguration. Trump continues, to peddle he is not the loser. And there's a ready audience. Conservative. Media, is growing, and splintering. These are, pretty fringe networks in a lot of ways they don't have a strong, reporting, wing. They're primarily, producing. Propaganda. And having, more and more americans. Consuming, more and more propaganda. Is a real problem for our political system i mean we're going to see this in the aftermath, of the 2020, election. The millions of americans, who won't see joe biden's presidency, as legitimate. I'm the president, of the united states don't ever talk to the president, that way but trump's time as president. Is almost up. Determined, to rewrite, his ending, by all indications, today the president, wants to keep fighting, all the way to the supreme, court. He continues, to jack up election conspiracies. And hype the media, who will. Help. All right going forward susan how do you expect trump to actually, use those platforms, when he's out of office. Well firstly important to note he's not going away he will, leave the white house in january. Or before. And go to mar-a-lago. But from there he will continue, to use, this conservative. Media, to help keep his really incomparable. Political, brand, alive. During his presidency. The demand. For conservative. Right-wing, media has only increased, so, he will pick and choose among them depending, on what he's trying to sell, whether that is as a republican.
King Maker. Or, as a potential, candidate. Going into the 2024. Election which he has, been hinting about in the last, few weeks. As for fox. Once biden gets in the white house they will resume, a very familiar. Footing. As. Kind of the official. Or unofficial, really, opposition. So with like-minded, conservative. Media, they will be keeping a very, close, eye, on this government, and that has worked very handily, for them, in the past, but, don't expect. Donald, trump to fade away, of course, he will not remain, on the outside. In the media platforms, at all, all right senior correspondent, susan armstead in washington, thanks susan.
