    Pfizer CEO Thinks Covid-19 Vaccine Will Work Against Omicron Variant, but Could Offer Less Protection

    As Omicron variant cases spread in other countries, there’s a rush to impose travel bans. At least 46 countries and territories have imposed travel restrictions from several African countries following the discovery of the variant. Japan and Israel have banned all foreign nationals from entering their countries. Late today, responding to the potential threat, and the word "potential" should be underscored here, the CDC amped-up its advice on vaccine boosters. The old word was that anyone 18 or older "may" get a booster. The new word they've chosen is "should." Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla joins Anderson to talk boosters, possible new versions of the vaccine and a pill the company has been testing to treat Covid. 

    Also, Tiger Woods says his days of being a full-time golfer are over. Anderson talks to Henni Koyack, the reporter who had an exclusive interview with the golf legend.

    All Three Men Convicted of Murder in Killing of Ahmaud Arbery

    A Georgia jury has found all three men charged in the killing of Ahmaud Arbery guilty of murder and other charges. Gregory McMichael, Travis McMichael and William "Roddie" Bryan Jr. could possibly face life in prison without parole. Arbery's death sparked national outrage after a video of his shooting was made public. Arbery was jogging in Brunswick, Georgia, when he was fatally shot in 2020. Arbery’s aunt Theawanza Brooks joins to talk about the verdict. 

    Plus, as Americans are about to gather with family and friends for Thanksgiving, the CDC has an unsettling forecast on Covid-19. Officials there predict that the number of new Covid deaths and hospitalizations are likely to increase over the next four weeks. Previously, the forecast had been for a stable or possibly uncertain trend. President Biden's chief medical adviser, Dr. Anthony Fauci, joins AC360 to talk about safe practices for the holiday and what lies ahead.

One of his kids was just barely missed by the SUV as it barreled through the crowd. He joins AC360 to describe the horrific scene and gives an update on how his children are doing.

Carrie Cordero is a CNN Legal Analyst and a senior fellow at the Center for a New American Security. She tells AC360 it’s “unlikely” they’ll be persuaded to cooperate but she thinks the committee is “doing everything” within its power to try and get that cooperation.

This guys the worst

These people seriously just spew lie after lie to further their leftist agenda. It’s no wonder their viewership is in the toilet. I can remember when CNN actually reported news, but that was a long long time ago 👎
