8:00 pm
went above and beyond for her. >> she silently listen with deep attention as i slain my situation. giving me the freedom to let down my guard. when i finished judge barrett leaned forward and looked at me intently, laura, she said, with the same measured conviction that we've seen displayed throughout her entire nomination process. this is no longer your problem. it's my problem. >> laura: that was an amazing moment. shannon bream and the "fox news @ night" team take it all from here. shannon. >> shannon: i mean really the best witness of the day. if you are not impressed by that woman's intellect and her passion, her devotion in her story, i don't know what you were watching because she was just -- >> laura: i agree. i loved your coverage, shannon. you did such a great job throughout this entire hearing in all week. thank you for doing it. >> shannon: spent a fun, busy week. thank you. have a great night. >> laura: you too. we'll be watching. >> shannon: president trump
8:01 pm
and democratic presidential candidate joe biden participating in dueling town hall tonight. instead of the head-to-head debate they were scheduled to have. posted by moderator who admits he lied about tweets about the president. suspended by c-span. new emails allegedly tied to hunter biden and his work with china. joe biden didn't get a single question about hunter biden tonight. hello and welcome to "fox news @ night." i am shannon bream. a busy news night. we've got excellent team coverage. howie kurtz with analysis of the moderators. chief political anchor bret baier and more coming up or let's kick off with bret's top moments. >> good evening. >> hey, shannon. it was interesting to watch the split screen. after you. >> shannon: there was a question vice president has gotten a lot. did he answer tonight?
8:02 pm
>> it's hard to believe but the split screen of america trying to watch two town halls at the same time was pretty tough. you realize what happened to the debate that was supposed to be tonight. the vice president was on his game. he clearly was in the moment and he had very detailed answers but didn't get to the court packing answer. sort of got further. take a listen. >> don't voters have a right to know? >> they do have a right to know where i stand and they will have a right to know where i stand before they vote. >> you'll come out with a clear position before election day? >> yes, depending on how they handle it. >> how they handle this is how they handle the judge amy coney barrett process he said. if they rush it, i don't know what he's watching but this vote is going to happen in committee. republicans have said they're going to go to the floor. i don't know what would change. but he did hint, shannon, that
8:03 pm
he might be in favor of adding judges. vesta says. >> shannon: is going to be a window between the vote the last week of october and election day. we will see if he gives us more clarity. the president faced a lot of questions from voters including those who want to know about how he would handle race issues. >> first of all, the tone and tenor of both town halls was completely different. george stephanopoulos was much more laid back. he didn't press biden that much at all. savannah guthrie at the beginning was rapid-fire in the interview almost. there was a lot of tension. the president was confident and came off very well as far as how he looked. some of the answers raised some eyeballs. eyebrows. there was one question about violence, and here's how he answered it. >> mr. president, what will you
8:04 pm
and your administration do to better prepare our law enforcement officers to work in collaboration with the communities that they serve and also to protect the lives of innocent black and latinos from police brutality and injustice? >> we have a senator named tim scott from south carolina. he came up with a bill that should've been approved. it was great. it was a bill that was strong in terms of law enforcement and strong in terms of enforcing the proper thing and doing the proper thing by law enforcement. the democrats just wouldn't go for it. >> a lot of things at his fingertips. he was on his game, president trump. he was a different setting come outside and miami. again what came off from the town hall was a lot of pointed questions by savannah guthrie about a variety of different issues. >> shannon: they were very much mixing it up. it sometimes felt like they were in a debate. let's go over to the biden town hall. he had to face questions about things that he has supported.
8:05 pm
>> right, and this is interesting because it goes back to the 1994 crime bill. he was asked specifically about it. >> was it a mistake to support it? >> yes it was but here's where the mistake came. the mistake came in terms of what the states do locally. >> let me ask another follow-up. 100,000 police back in 1984. you've often said more cops clearly mean less crime. do you still believe that? >> yes if, in fact, they are involved in community policing, not jump squad. >> i will say that biden was very detailed when he went into policy, very substantive. some of those answers were very, very long to the questions. this issue, the crime bill coming up in his own party and the split on his support. he says he's not for it now. >> shannon: well, politicians sometimes evolve, as he has on
8:06 pm
many things including the hyde amendment and others. the president, i don't know but post covid. he was very fired up and energetic. he likes to get out there and talk and mix it up with people. he also is talking about a lot of other folks wanting to get out there and they are done with lockdown. >> 100%. it's a big issue and a lot of the states that are dealing with this and he mentions michigan and pennsylvania and north carolina, places he's obviously going on the campaign trail. you're right he was very energized tonight. even had this back-and-forth on lockdowns. take a listen. >> we one maccabean case in michigan because that governor has a lockdown where nobody but her husband can do anything. he can go boating an and do whatever he wants. >> got his point and about governor whitmer's husband in
8:07 pm
michigan. the president came off a couple times smiling, laughing, he had one woman who told him he was very handsome. had a great smile. behind him, the visual was someone over his shoulder who was nodding at everything that she agreed with that he said. it was visually a good thing for president trump. i think joe biden did very well substantively. he was definitely on his game tonight. >> shannon: we are showing a little video to talk about the woman behind him. the interesting thing is there are people on twitter saying we've got to figure out who this woman is. not in a positive way, as if they want to docks her or something. you mentioned the woman and she was introduced as someone leadinleaning biden. interesting that, thank you for staying late with us to break it down. >> you bet. have a good one. >> shannon: the actions of a social media giant in reaction to "the new york post" reporting on recent develop it's in the hunter biden email story have
8:08 pm
gotten its ceo into hot water and capitol hill. white house correspondent kevin corke has the latest. trump world reaction to tonight's town halls. >> good evening, it's almost as if the tech giants are spoiling for a fight. a day after the white house press secretary kayleigh mcenany's twitter account was locked, the very same thing happened today to the president's reelection campaign account. sparking a fierce outcry from g.o.p. lawmakers in particular who, like the president, are promising action. >> we all believe in freedom of the press but don't forget big tech got something years ago that let them become big tech. >> president trump today putting tech giants twitter and facebook i noticed. play fair or possibly up. >> if big tech persists in coordination with the mainstream media. >> the president's comments coming a day after the tech monopolies limited access to a "new york post" story about emails concerning hunter biden and his father, the former vice president. and apparent influence peddling in ukraine.
8:09 pm
this social media giant's handling of the stories grew into a broad assault on the online industry's most cherished legal protections. >> they are censoring the press. jack dorsey is behaving as joe biden's press secretary. >> the networks refused to back down, even locking the account of the president's reelection campaign for a few hours after i posted a video related to the article. that was after the senate judiciary committee subpoenaed twitter ceo jack dorsey to appear before lawmakers next week to explain his company's actions. this is election interference plain and simple, said the trump campaign's to murtaugh and a statement, a breathtaking level of political meddling and nothing short of an attempt to ring the auction. democrats on capitol hill perhaps wary of the electorate's general views on censorship expressed caution over calls to eliminate special carve outs for the internet giants in the wake of the controversy. >> the proposal to eliminate it
8:10 pm
without sufficient thought or care i think is a political move. it's designed simply for political purposes going into this election. and to intimidate the tech companies. >> we'll see all about that possible intimidation as we learn a lot more next week. by the way, late tonight, twitter announced some changes to its policies in the wake of the controversy. number one, they say they will no longer remove "hacked content" unless it's directly shared by the hackers or by those acting in concert with them. number two, they say they will label tweets to provide context instead of blocking links from being shared on twitter. for the record, there's no evidence that this material allegedly belonging to hunter biden was necessarily hacked. again, this story continues to unfold. i'll stay on top of it for you but for now back to you. >> shannon: we know you will. a lot of unanswered questions. we'll learn more in the coming days. thank you kevin.
8:11 pm
another unusual night in an unprecedented year. the president and joe biden participating in two very different town halls into different cities, different moderating styles. from nbc savannah guthrie and abc's george stephanopoulos. let's take a deeper dive with fox news media analyst, the host of fox news media buzz, howard kurtz. great to see you tonight. >> good evening, shannon. looking at savannah guthrie and george stephanopoulos. she was the brawler and he was the bystander, asking far fewer questions and mostly deferring to the audience. guthrie came out with guns blazing in the first 20 minutes with president trump. she was, i'm a fan of aggressive interviews, but she sounded at times in her tone like she was debating the president. that's not the moderator's role. at times bordering on dismissive. take a look. >> you don't know if you took a test the day of the debate. knowing what we know, should you have known better? shouldn't the white house no better than to hold an event like that. you're the president. you're not someone's crazy uncle
8:12 pm
who retweets whatever. >> guthrie went from openly challenging the president's credibility on how he dealt with the virus personally. asking him to denounce white supremacy. she sarcastically said that you are the big dealmaker. i think savannah guthrie was under a lot of pressure from the left who openly criticized the fact that nbc was given the president a town hall at all. >> shannon: there were a lot of folks who made their voices known that they were very unhappy. that the network would consider hosting, especially not directly against joe biden. let's talk about your impressions of his town hall. >> well, with george stephanopoulos on abc, i thought the moderator was much more passive. the only time he repeatedly followed up as you showed was when joe biden was evasive on court packing and wouldn't quite answer the question. most of the questions were from the audience. most were friendly. george did ask some good questions but they were mostly
8:13 pm
about policy rather than challenging biden's character or his credibility. let's watch. >> how can you contain the pandemic without crushing the economy? >> stephanopoulos let biden give some very long answers. at one point asking him what will it say about america if you lose and biden said, it would say i'm not a very good candidate. it was "good morning america" as it do chorus afternoon tea versus "the today show" on steroids. >> shannon: unless i missed it and we have gone over this. i was like everybody else trying to bounce between the two. there wasn't a single question about the hunter biden claims. he has not been asked directly about it in this event tonight. >> you would think because it's dominated the news. there are lots of questions about "the new york post" story and you touched on the social media suppression of it, that at least there would be one question and see how the former vice president handled it but
8:14 pm
that did not happen. nbc made a big mistake by scheduling its town hall at the same time as the already scheduled abc town hall. it forced people. it's like divided programming for a divided country. it forced people to watch one or the other or may be baseball. >> shannon: with people remember a few months back, savannah guthrie did ask the former vice president joe biden about this directly and he did get very defensive with her. she did ask him. he was a long time ago. now it's a headline again. i thought we would see it tonight. howard kurtz, thank you for takinstakingstaying up late wit. more on the social media giants. gillian turner taking a look at something called section 280. you may have heard of it. hey, jillian paid >> good evening, shannon. all three branches of the u.s. government leads ring in on what's known as section 2:30, a legislative provision enacted before most of today's internet
8:15 pm
platforms existed. section 230 of the communications decency act has long been used by the social media giants as our shield to protect them against lawsuits over alleged censorship. >> they got total protection. they don't get sued. they don't get anything. we are going to take away their section 230 unless they shape up. >> it should be done with the scalpel. >> democratic member of the federal communications division is also frustrated tweeting "the fcc has no business being the president speech police." tonight the fcc's republican chairman, ajit pie, announcing he's launching reviewed in light of partisan criticism from capitol hill, the white house, and even the supreme court about an overly broad interpretation of section 230. the statute protects companies from liability should a third party upload libelous or defamatory content. if the internet takes it down, it's also protected. in a ruling this week justice
8:16 pm
clarence thomas wrote by adopting the practices. courts have relied on policy and purpose arguments to grant sweeping protection to internet platforms. supreme court nominee judge amy coney barrett said this in response to a question about whether courts have overly broadly interpreted section to o 230s protections. >> section 230, in general the danger of a court doing that is to subvert the will of the people. you were present the people. >> the next step is hearing from the social media giants themselves and whether they think that rolling back section 230 protections will actually lead them to post less content from third-party providers. like "the new york post." >> shannon: gillian turner, thank you. does the fbi have hunter biden's alleged laptop during the impeachment hearings? if so, did they bury it? house republicans are demanding answers. when we started our business

>> shannon: presidential confidant rudy giuliani insisting that the the hunter biden email whirlwind. there's plenty of questions about the origins of the information and new developments tonight. covid scare for the vp nominee and of course a town hall or two. correspondent jacqui heinrich reporting on the biden campaign live from philly. good evening. >> good evening, shannon. former vice president joe biden takes questions during a town hall, replacing the second debate. questions are going unanswered about purported emails from his son. >> the answer is if it's on the hard drive. >> slow drip of emails from "the new york post" reportedly from hunter biden or raising questions.
8:22 pm
whether joe biden was involved. the newest email also obtained by mike emanuel discussed a deal that would be "interesting for me and my family," mentioning payment for six people including the big guy. the postcards emails from president trump's personal lawyer rudy giuliani who says he got it legally. >> the document that i have signed by hunter biden says that after 90 days, the hard drive is abandoned. it becomes the property of the merchant. >> the merchant a legally blind computer repair man says a man calling himself hunter biden dropped off the laptop in april 2019. isaac told me he didn't give it straight to giuliani. he used a third party to first contact the fbi and later politicians, including giuliani. isaac would not say who the intermediary was but said they were politically skilled. >> they are better at this political thing that i am. >> better at the politicals by
8:23 pm
press? >> isaac and knowledge president trump's impeachment was a factor in seeking this friends help. neither hunter biden nor his father have confirmed or denied the validity of the emails with joe pushback on this information during a fund-raiser. biden hadn't stopped campaigning even after a charter company official on two of his stops this week tested positive for covid-19. the campaign said he never got within 50 feet of the form of ip but senator kamala harris did last thursday. right after she flew with two members of her team who later tested positive for the virus. last night she praised the protocols. >> do you feel safe campaigning during covid? >> well, we've been very safe. >> harris is off the campaign trail to monday as a precaution. she tested negative today, so did joe biden. shannon. >> shannon: jacqui heinrich on the road with the biden campaign. thank you. plenty to unpack on this hunter
8:24 pm
biden story from the alleged emails themselves to how they made their way to rudy giuliani and "the new york post." then there's this whole big tech alleged censorship angle. let's hash it out with the cochair ethan bearman. deroy murdock. john you. welcome. >> good evening shannon. >> shannon: deroy, a number of g.o.p. house members to christopher wray saying what they are most concerned about is the fact that there are allegations that the fbi took possession of the alleged hunter biden laptop in december of 2019. they want to know if it's true, why they didn't share it with the president's team. do you think they will get answers? do you think any of us will get answers questioning >> i hope we get answers but we are waiting for a lot of answers on all kinds of documents that are been demanded by various committees on capitol hill.
8:25 pm
waited years and years and get this very, very slow one email, one week. a lot of senators, ron johnson of wisconsin, very upset they've been calling for these documents literally years. this laptop could be the same situation. they should've been more forthcoming. the fbi took some of the laptops in the hillary email situation from her state bar and colleagues and destroyed them. they destroyed the laptops. destroying evidence in such a case like that. it sounds like a type of obstruction of evidence. just because the fbi has certain documents and materials doesn't mean it's safe for will see the light of day. >> shannon: we don't know if they did but hopefully we'll get some information from the director about whether they had possession and what they know about it. politico said, we mention, the biden campaign said there wasn't this meeting with the burisma ukrainian gentleman on his official calendars or commitments but they would not rule out the possibility that
8:26 pm
there had been some kind of interaction from them. a doj reporter noted "if you read the statement hunter biden's lawyer has released, hunter is not yet denied the veracity of a single alleged email." ethan, jacqui heinrich said nobody in biden's sphere is saying these are emails from hunter or involving hunter. >> they don't need to because none of this passes the most basic sniff test. he would never be brought to a grand jury. everything is absent in terms of the way the facts work. here's why. three macs were reported for $85. when was last time you had a macintosh repaired for $85 question markets more than $85 for one. why did this guy who is legally blind present this to so many people as oppose it evidence? apple has built in security features on the operating system. if you bring in end for repair, you're not reading people's emails. why would he have a video of
8:27 pm
himself using drugs from many, many, many years ago which he submitted his own drug abuse history. nothing about this makes any sense. furthermore when you look at the metadata that was released, it's ridiculous that somebody who actually have the background and info in i.t. security like i do, nothing about this works. this story is meaningless. therefore why even deny it? >> shannon: okay. but john, what would you say? you are a sharp legal mind. would you tell the campaign? would you tell hunter, just say that their phony and i didn't write them? >> certainly would want to investigated. i can see why it was turned over to the fbi. you'd want to know whether these were valid and whether they give evidence of any kind of effort by ukrainians to bribe the son of the sitting vice president of the united states to try to influence policy. that's a potential crime. you'd want to know, at least have an investigation into what these laptops, whether they actually were verifiable data.
8:28 pm
the other thing is if i were advising the biden campaign, i've got to admit i don't really see that happening even in the next three weeks but if i were advising the biden campaign, he asked, why not come right out right away and say we didn't generate these. they are not true. the best thing is to tell the truth right away and not even appear to be covering anything up. >> shannon: okay, well, twitter is announcing -- >> i have to wonder -- >> shannon: go ahead. >> a quick point. i guess the idea that ethan is presenting is that the emails were fabricated through where the photos of hunter biden fabricated? someone who looks like hunter biden, an actor perhaps pretending to be hunter biden in all these photos? where those fate? is that cgi? >> those photos were elsewhere. they didn't necessarily come off the laptop. that's the problem. none of this is logical to anyone who knows anything about information technology and security. it's purely logical. >> shannon: this guy has told
8:29 pm
our reporters, jacqui heinrich talk to him, that he was afraid. he didn't want this information and no one came to pick it up. he's going to get probed more on the story and so is the fbi. we have more to talk to you about. california senator dianne feinstein facing calls to step down from her leadership position coming from the left. wait till you find out why they think she needs to be stripped of all her power next. le..gentl new projects means new project managers. you need to hire. i need indeed. indeed you do. the moment you sponsor a job on indeed you get a short list of quality candidates from our resume database so you can start hiring right away. claim your seventy five dollar credit, when you post your first job at

8:34 pm
supreme court. "let's get reaction, mike davis. had to have you back. >> thank you for having me. >> i want to play something that dianne feinstein had to say today. >> mr. chairman, i want to thank you. this has been one of the best set of hearings that i participated in. i want to thank you for your fairness and the opportunity of going back and forth. >> shannon: not happy about that. they ended up hugging which made them even more angry. they say it's time for her, she's out of touch i'm too old to do this. she doesn't know how to play hardball. time to go. >> it's interesting. she's 87 years old. she had a primary challenge in her last election. she had a liberal challenger from the left two years ago. she cleaned that person's clock.
8:35 pm
she's going to be in the senate for at least another four years. josie's 91 years old. i doubt senator feinstein cares very much what brian thinks of her. i think she's very secure. the senate is a creature of seniority and i think there is a 0% chance democrats will be able to toss her out as the top democrat on the senate judiciary committee, whether it's the chairman, if they win the senate back or the ranking member if the republicans keep the senate. >> shannon: they thought she was too nice to the nominee. she complement her on her family and how well behaved they were. she did know how she managed all that. people on the left tweeting, stop being so nice. she's the ranking democrat on the committee. about the hug, slate says "that's a photo of the 87-year-old leader of the democrats and arguably the senate's most important committee hugging the man responsible for this travesty of a hearing who again has refused
8:36 pm
to get tested for covid-19." lindsey graham, a mask list hug was apparently in order. he did such a good job with the hearings after all." not happy that they have a cold relationship. cordial relationship. probably past the point where you can meet in the middle? people will read out the health risks understandably. his bipartisanship and civility gone? both sides get heated and nasty during these things like a supreme court seat. >> i think the left is being insane. i worked for chairman chuck grassley last congress and the chairman of the ranking member get along. that doesn't mean that you're selling out on your principles. it means that you're the adults in the room. as the adults in the room, they can get along and they can be civil to each other. remember what brian fallon and chuck schumer and the others did last time with justice kavanaugh. they turned it into a circus and accused justice kavanaugh of getting rape.
8:37 pm
four incumbent scott i think senator feinstein is taking the smarter approach. >> shannon: you and i were talking and i've talked with senator on the committee whose nervous because things are going smoothly. they have a very tight timeline to get her confirmed before election day. he's worried that they are going to wait a few days and drop something because there won't be time to address it and get it done before election day. how are you feeling? >> they'll come up with something. they did it with justice thomas. they did it with justice kavanaugh. they will come up with something. it's going to be bogus just like it was with kavanagh and thomas but she will be confirmed and she will be on the supreme court before the end of the month. >> shannon: okay. mike davis, we'll check back in with you on that. great to have you back. >> thank you for having me.
8:38 pm
>> shannon: nbc news asking the president to denounce white supremacy. again. our panel for round two next. that cannot be extinguished. it rages on to give us a glimmer of what we can do, and of who we can become. because hope fuels opportunity. university of phoenix is awarding up to one million dollars in new scholarships through this month. yes, hope is alive and well. see what scholarship you qualify for at

>> i denounce white supremacy. >> i've denounced white supremacy for years. you didn't ask joe biden whether or not he denounces antifa. i watched him on the same show with lester holt and he was asking questions like, biden was a child. >> this is a little bit of a dodge. >> are you listening. i denounce white supremacy. what's your next question? >> shannon: tonight was supposed to be the night of the second debate between the president and former vice president but instead the two candidates were more than 1,000 miles apart for dissipating into a very different town halls. we are rejoined by ethan bearman, deroy murdock, john y
8:43 pm
yoo. >> how many more times does he have to? i think it's important, i wish he had explained how his policies have benefited all minorities. we reached a historic level of unemployment for blacks, hispanics, asians, i think he has a good positive case to layout. not only does he reject white supremacy but his policy has been good for all minority groups and that's the starting point. let's have wealth built. let's have unemployment. then we can talk about what to do next. >> shannon: he did i believe in response to a woman we saw earlier, african-american woman who asked about being fearful having her son or students were people interact with the police and she asked about police reform. he used that opportunity to talk about senator tim scott's bill that he's put together on this the democrats wouldn't support. he went on to talk about the criminal justice reform bill.
8:44 pm
funding for hbcus and all kinds of things. he laid out slew of achievements. he's actually done things in the books now for the minority community. >> yeah, small steps and any step is always appreciated but i couldn't disagree more vehemently with professor yoo. the president repeatedly denied, who is david duke supporting me? very fine people on both sides. if sending coming up clearly -- >> shannon: wait a minute, no, no, no. >> stand back and stand by to the proud boys. i took screenshots that day shannon bream absolutely. i took screenshots that day. they loved president trump that day. they loved president trump that day. >> shannon: you know that i love you but we are going to be factual about this. you can go in google it. >> it is factual. >> shannon: a number of times the president since 2016 back then when he was asked over and
8:45 pm
over again i denounce white supremacy. he's been saying it for years. >> sure. and other times he pretends that he doesn't know what he's talking about. the proud boys are -- we know who the proud boys are afraid for him to lie. come on. stand back in standby. >> shannon: okay, you're assume he was lying. let's move on. we want to keep things factual. if thing about good people on both sides, you know that there's a fuller quote where he says i'm not talking about the neo-nazis and those people. we have to put things in context. deroy, now we find that ice cube is in trouble because he's dared to work with the trump administration. he says i'm not endorsing these candidates. he says "the powers that be canceled my interview tonight. i've been banned from cnn. i was surprised they asked. it seems like they can't handle the truth." he said he reached out to both campaigns. the biden folks said will get back to you after the election. he said he had interaction with
8:46 pm
