Description: In a statement released this weekend, USCCB President Archbishop José H. Gomez congratulated Joe Biden and Kamala Harris for receiving enough votes to win the election.

Pfizer says vaccine is 90% effective: Is Relief in Sight?
Description: Pharmaceutical giant Pfizer announced this morning that early analysis of a vaccine trial shows the vaccine to be 90% effective in treating COVID-19. According to analysis by the Charlotte Lozier institute, the vaccine was not developed with fetal cell lines, making it “ethically uncontroversial.” We’ve known since the beginning that it would take a safe and effective vaccine to get things back to normal. Even with infection rates rising, can we hope that there is some light at the end of the tunnel? Dr. Steve Doran joins us.

Coverage of the Election Results show the Media hasn’t learned anything
Description: During the 2016 election, the mainstream press spent months assuring themselves that America would never elect a man like Donald Trump. After his victory, they pledged to “soul search” and “better understand America,” then spent the next four years repeating the same mantras – Donald Trump is a lying racist, as is anyone who supports him. We’ve seen even more of the same over the last week. Teresa Tomeo joins us.
