As the Russian invasion of Ukraine continues, “CBS Evening News” anchor Norah O’Donnell is reporting from the Poland-Ukraine border for a news special. During her report, O’Donnell spoke to Ukrainian refugees discussing the challenges of fleeing their war-torn country.

With the war ongoing and no end in sight, these refugees face an uncertain and difficult future. The war has caused three million Ukrainians to flee the country; some 2 million have ended up in neighboring Poland.

O’Donnell talked with children, mothers, and fathers regarding their experiences and what they plan to do next. The news anchor narrated the trauma and shock she witnessed among the refugees, “As one woman said to me, this is not supposed to happen in the 21st century… A war like this.”

The CBS anchor then talked to a young boy asking a young boy to share his emotions and what his family plans to do next now that he’s out of Ukraine.

“Are you scared?” She asked a young boy. “I’m so scared,” he responded. “Where will you go next?” she asked him. “We try to immigrate to Canada or USA,” the boy replied. “Canada or USA?” O’Donnell added. “My father has a sister in USA,” he responded.

O’Donnell then spoke to two women who crossed from Kharkiv to Poland by train with three children but no food. After leaving their home city, she stated, “they are not familiar with Poland, so will pick a small town where they can rest and figure things out.”

The anchor then discussed the dangers that women and children face with a UN official named Mohamed Refaat.

“It’s hard to decide now. It’s definitely not labor trafficking,” Refaat responded. “It’s very obvious from the attempt; it’s old guys trying to pick young girls, so you can assume it’s…”

“Old guys trying to get young girls,” O’Donnell continued. “Have there been arrests for human trafficking?” “Yes,” Refaat replied.

The United States continues to reel from the latest mass shooting in Uvalde, Texas, where 19 children and two adults died, leading many in the media to address the issue of what is happening in the country with the number of mass shootings. 

Jimmy Kimmel delivered an emotional monologue about the mass shooting at a Texas elementary school on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” However, viewers on WFAA Dallas didn’t get to see it as it ran to commercial break. The station has since apologized for the incident. 

“Jimmy Kimmel delivers powerful monologue in wake of Uvalde elementary school shooting, lambasting legislators for lack of action.” The story said. “Technical issues prevented the entirety of Kimmel’s monologue from airing in full on WFAA.”

“WFAA apologizes for technical difficulties that interrupted “Jimmy Kimmel Live” at multiple points, including during his monologue on gun control.”

The late-night host also commented on the Dallas station cutting his monologue for the viewers, stating that he knows the people that work for the station and believes the incident wasn’t intentional. 

“To my friends in Dallas who are asking: I do not know whether our @ABCNetwork affiliate @wfaa cut away from my monologue tonight intentionally or inadvertently but I will find out. In the meantime, here’s what you didn’t get to see,” Kimmel tweeted

“I’ve known the staff at @wfaa personally and professionally for almost 20 years and believe this mistake was made unintentionally. Thanks for reposting and for correcting this error. Sending love to all my friends in Texas.”

Chris Hayes: Schools Are Places for Learning, They’re Not Prisons

Hayes gave his detailed examination of the crisis of mass shootings in America and the nation’s reaction to that problem.

The United States continues to reel from the latest mass shooting in Uvalde, Texas, on Tuesday, where 19 kids and two teachers were killed. There’s been plenty of reaction as details trickle out through various reporting.

MSNBC’s Chris Hayes gave his detailed examination of the crisis of mass shootings in America and the nation’s reaction to that problem.

“So what are we gonna do here,” Hayes said on Thursday’s edition of “All In.” “Some choices: Are we going to conceive of every school in this nation as first and foremost the site of a possible massacre and redesign and engineer every building with that in mind?”

“Should we make mass gun massacre prevention a core part of what schooling is and what schooling procedures look like?”

Hayes added that schools shouldn’t be implementing procedures to prepare for the next mass shooting. The MSNBC host adds that these places are for learning.

“As a parent and as a citizen, I say no. No. No. I don’t accept that. Schools are public places. They’re places of learning. For children, and teachers, and staff, to grow, and flourish, and play together. They are not prisons, they are not fortresses, and they should not have to be,” Hayes continued.

“No more hardening schools, no more lock-down drills. No more. The actual massacres are bad enough. The grief and the trauma, it’s bad enough. The trauma of families in Uvalde, or Parkland, or Santa Fe, or on and on and on. The trauma of the ritualized child sacrifice of American gun culture. And we have chosen to add on top of that the burden of making our schools places where every single child is subjected to the experience of hiding for their lives as an exercise?”

Tucker Carlson Slams Officers in Texas for Their False Information

Carlson stated the police have been lying about their answers and noted some of them may have perpetrated a “moral crime” following the massacre at Robb Elementary, which saw 19 children and two adults die.

Fox News host Tucker Carlson is slamming police officers in Texas for their false information about Tuesday’s mass shooting at an elementary school in Uvalde, Texas. 

Carlson stated the police have been lying about their answers and noted some of them may have perpetrated a “moral crime” following the massacre at Robb Elementary, which saw 19 children and two adults die.

Police originally expressed that an officer already present at the school “engaged” the suspect but could not stop him from entering the building. Nonetheless, officers now state the gunman entered unhampered. 

“It seems apparent that when that video was shot, the gunman was still alive with the firearm in the school with children,” Carlson stated, per Mediaite.

“Now, a Texas official later suggested on camera that while all of this was happening, some members of law enforcement in Texas went into the school to get their own children out.”

The Fox News host stated that although he’s pro-law enforcement, Carlson can’t fathom as to why it took them so long to re-enter the school with the 18-year-old gunman inside and children dying.  

“During that time they say they were waiting for backup, including, for some reason, for multiple crisis negotiators,” Carlson said. “No matter how pro-law enforcement you are, and we are there’s only so much B.S. you can take in the face of a tragedy like this. 

“We were waiting for specialized equipment? You have an 18year-old with a firearm and little kids being killed. What kind of specialty of equipment do you need? Negotiators? Really? As children are being murdered?”
