Some New York news shows back, but many hosts work remotely
Monday represented a key phase in New York City's reopening, with many offices bringing employees back for the first time. Despite the CBS and Fox moves, most news employees continue to work remotely, and the television programs that originate here have a patchwork of approaches that have quickly become familiar. A majority of the show hosts on MSNBC including Joe Scarborough, Mika Brzezinski and Willie Geist of Morning Joe work remotely. Other morning shows have varied approaches. Hoda Kotb of NBC's Today show has worked out of that show's Rockefeller Center studio, but most of her colleagues are at home.
Amash: Republicans wish they weren't 'trapped' into defending Trump
Asked by CNN's Erin Burnett on Monday night whether those around the President were essentially forced to lie in order to defend Trump, Amash replied, "Yeah, and it's a shame." Amash left the Republican Party this past summer and became an independent after he became the sole GOP lawmaker to publicly argue that Trump had engaged in impeachable conduct. "I think they know better and I think, deep down, they wish they weren't, you know, trapped in this position," Amash said on CNN's "Erin Burnett OutFront." I hear them talk about how they wish they weren't doing this." "Anyone working in this administration is going to have a hard time explaining what's going on," Amash told Burnett.
Omar: Admin 'that lies about weather maps' can't be trusted on Iran
(CNN) - Rep. Ilhan Omar on Monday dismissed President Donald Trump's ability to navigate escalating tensions with Iran, pointing to the controversy over Hurricane Dorian's path and whether it would hit Alabama. The secretary of state doesn't it have and Saudi Arabia certainly doesn't have it," Omar, a Minnesota Democrat, told CNN's Erin Burnett on "OutFront." Omar's invocation of past Trump administration falsehoods comes after Trump told reporters Monday that "it's looking like" Iran was behind this weekend's attack on oil facilities in Saudi Arabia but suggested it was too early to say for sure. Trump said Monday he was "not looking to get into new conflict, but sometimes you have to." As Trump gears up for a 2020 reelection battle, a notable lack of public trust in information coming from the White House -- such as the falsehoods Omar referenced -- continue to dog his administration.
