First saw the White House yesterday -- told reporters not to get too when -- this story about half Korea's missile development they think that they're giving them a lot of ink.
But -- -- big Wall Street Journal this weekend and national public radio did add at a book review and interview with this guy who wrote.
Escaped from camp fourteen now what they don't realize is that kids born.
Into these camps never get out they live their life essentially concentration camps.
You know a lot of people criticize president Roosevelt rightly I think for not bombing.
Some in the concentration camps and allowing you think -- machines gone.
Correctly and we also criticized the Clinton administration for not -- A little more involved in Wanda and I happened to be covering the White House at that time when people were more worried about.
Clinton's 100000 dollars and then.
Then what was going on -- But why isn't there more connection with human rights issues and the examination that we could do to stop this modern day concentration camps should we consider you know.
I hate to say it because I am not into -- the bombing them so that they stop.
And that -- and and then the other hand as people are not covering fact that we're sending some back door delegations.
Two North Korea to work on food production and setter so are we really in the sense supporting what might be considered a sort of Nazi.
And I'm not see -- kind of regime really human rights probably came because we're afraid of their huge army and their connection with China.
So that's -- by -- -- cinematographer.
Has -- on that so many report I've been reading about reporters who will be in North Korea.
On their way North Korea but even if you do get in there to cover it do you really see what the story is I don't think you do and they're certainly not gonna invite me there.
Mad at me when I'm going to tell me yeah have a shot.
-- wolf that the OK what can we do about it -- well I don't need to create a real -- I don't think it's what we really to do is is the reporters really have to do some stuff like.
Really get on this camp.
Fourteen issue I think they need to.
-- -- our policy there to our history.
And what what we have done in terms of supporting and not supporting.
Really bad regimes.
And I think we have to trying to connect our policies there not to the fact that there were terrified that they haven't a million people on.
South Korea's border but.
What is our sort of moral core and are we going to exercise.
As a nation we have that moral core yes.
And but the wrapping up their -- but what I'm saying is that in terms of unbiased -- the press is not connecting those you've got and I have a problem.
They control the press though and that you can't really I pray that our arsenal if -- press goes there and there are reporters Richard Engle another guy who are on their way -- they are.
They really won't be able to cover this story accurately and why can't we do anything about that.
These are these I think we need to say -- stress helps to be able to go to various places or we're not gonna send them the people are too excited about sending.
You know and press people I've been in North Korea that kind.
-- okay that's my advice -- on North Korea.
Autism is my next -- -- bash.
This is national autism awareness month and Fox News.
And FOX & Friends has done some stuff on masses and some.
Our business -- -- -- that kind of thing.
And -- Wall Street Journal did something on the genetic.
Increases in autism and and because of that.
But there's the whole issue of vaccines.
The parents' groups are saying vaccines cause it.
These scientists in the medical schools are saying absolutely not this is craziness.
What I'd like to see depressed -- in the press has not done is to compare and to give people sort of a guide to the science.
A guide to the different articles that are out there.
What what exists how do you Begin to read this hot Indian and understand the science nobody's really -- that they either publish articles you know.
The people are saying it's vaccines or is genetic but nobody has done a real analysis on both sides of the fence so what do you make up for example on Sunday site I do Sunday house call with doctor some audience doctor Siegel and they address the issue of -- has them and vaccines and they said absolutely not.
Is that enough well that's what I'm saying and saying the press needs to.
I'll pull -- those articles and those studies and say this is the way to analyze it.
And they also need to pull out the genetic articles that are coming up and this is the way to analyze it and give.
You know Joseph in -- Real guide to how do you look at literature how do you is the -- big enough -- -- at the press's responsibility it -- -- the autism society I think it's -- you know what I'm going to write articles about genetics or write articles about the vaccines one way or the other.
You need to give people the tools on how to look at this what's coming out.
I think that's really imports such a wide spectrum do you really trying to -- generalize I understand information I understand and you know I was just funny I was just to think Georgia's medical school yesterday and -- And I mention the vexing thing and they think I have ten horns growing out of me.
But I think that and -- and the wide because people think it's just junk science.
But the question is whether it's junk science or not the American people deserve.
A really good analysis on both I'm off sides of the fence okay.
And if you thought that was it wait there's one more but there's there's there well I don't know where we -- -- hear -- -- problem.
-- if you want an -- 131.
Morales I'm gonna pick one Warren -- yesterday Austria.
Yesterday I was in Miami and I looked up at the customs the word about which flights are coming man.
You know that there were four flights from -- in a two hour period coming and most the American public does not understand.
What we -- going on back and forth in Cuba.
And there have been very few press articles.
People are not aware you know we Cuba's Communist country that's not.
That we don't penetrate yet -- doing stuff back and forth back and forth from the time the American public doesn't know.
FOX News Watch our buddy John Scott on Saturday's 230 and 11:30 PM you can catch -- there.
