  • question.

  • Is there any debate that Fridays are awesome?

  • Answer.

  • No.

  • But debates are the subject of today's first report on CNN 10.

  • And we're thankful toe have you watching?

  • I'm Carl Azusa outside the CNN Center Next Tuesday, incumbent Republican President Donald Trump and Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden will meet face to face on the stage.

  • It's the first of three scheduled debates between these two men.

  • They're set to have another on October 15th and a third one a week later.

  • Incumbent Republican vice President Mike Pence and Democratic vice presidential nominee Kamala Harris will have their debate on October 7th.

  • These events each last an hour and a half.

  • There are no commercial breaks.

  • There are opportunities for the candidates to respond to each other and for the debate moderators to steer the discussion.

  • The topics for next week's presidential debate will include the candidate's political records, the Supreme Court, the economy, race and violence in American cities, the coronavirus pandemic and the integrity of the election.

  • It's very tough to predict how influential the debates will be on how people vote, but to ensure their organized, relevant and fair to the candidates, a nonprofit, nonpartisan group was created to oversee the events.

  • The Commission on Presidential Debates was established in the late 19 eighties.

  • Since that time, TV debates have been a permanent part of every U.

  • S election, but the first ones date back even further.

  • Let's start with the campaign that put televised debates on the map.

  • 1960.

  • Kennedy versus Nixon It was less about what they said in that debate, and more about how they looked.

  • Mr Nixon comes out of the Republican Party, and it is the fact that through most of these last 25 years, the Republican leadership has opposed federal aid for education.

  • Medical care for the agent.

  • The question before us is which point of view and which party do we want to leave the United States?

  • Mr.

  • Nixon, would you like to comment on that statement?

  • I have no comment.

  • You know, it's the old saying that folks that heard that debate on the radio thought Nixon one folks that watched it on television thought Kennedy one because Nixon was sweating and Kennedy was looking debonair.

  • And so it's sort of like defined how powerful television was for presidential politics going forward, right and no doubt and showed how TV was gonna become such a powerful force in politics and how people were going to start getting their news from television, especially when it came to politics.

  • You know, we talk a lot about being stylistic right.

  • This was the stylistic debate, right?

  • Ever since it's been thus that we scored these debates, style and substance right, which is sad, you know, in many ways I can feel the pain that Ronald Reagan felt as being an old guy, especially in this business where there's a lot of young folks.

  • But it was in 1984 where Ronald Reagan defused the whole idea that he was too old to be president.

  • Let's take a listen to this.

  • I will not make age an issue of this campaign.

  • I am not going to exploit for political purposes my opponent's youth and inexperience.

  • Listen, Ronald Reagan in 1984 some questions about whether or not he was starting to slip a little bit.

  • Was he forgetting?

  • He lost his first debate, David, and then he rolled into the second debate, and then he came out with that famous line zinger.

  • I really he put his acting skills to work there.

  • I mean, he just understood the power of delivery there, and actually, Mondale gives him a laugh in the moment.

  • So it helped sell the his opponent actually helped sell the moment for Reagan.

  • I mean, it's that kind of performance that, you know, we talked to political consultants all the time.

  • They're paid tons of money to try to coach candidates to do that.

  • Reagan had that as just part of his innate ability that he brought to the political state.

  • And he went on to win in a landslide, the likes of which we have not seen since powerful.

  • Okay, 12th trivia.

  • What is the oldest airline in the world?

  • Qantas, Aeroflot KLM or Delta?

  • KLM Royal Dutch Airlines was founded in 1919 making it the world's oldest airline.

  • Since the start of 2020.

  • The U.

  • S Centers for Disease Control says thousands of passengers on commercial flights might have been exposed to coronavirus that's not specific to KLM or any other single airline.

  • The CDC says it was made aware that on 1600 flights between January and August, someone on board may have had Cove in 19 and That means almost 11,000 passengers could have been exposed, according to the health agency, because they were sitting within a 6 ft range of the disease carrier.

  • This doesn't mean that all these people actually caught coronavirus, and the CDC says it's information is not complete.

  • The airline industry says flying is safe and that it's requiring masks, extensive cleaning and limited passenger interaction to help keep it that way.

  • But a CNN 10 contributor, Chris James, reports Flying does look a lot different as US airlines operate with only 30% of the travelers they had last year.

  • It this time.

  • Chris.

  • Hey, Carl, as you well know, because of our jobs as reporters, we often have to travel to the biggest stories, which means typically, ah, lot of time spent on airplanes.

  • Now I've been traveling much less than normal, but I have had to fly several times since the pandemic began on.

  • I want to tell you a little bit about what it's like taking to the skies during the age of Cove.

  • It first of all, and the biggest change it's empty.

  • When I was walking through this terminal in New York at 2 p.m. it felt more like 2 a.m. while to see what used to be such a crowded space feels so lonely.

  • And on this flight, I was one of about 10 passengers.

  • Usually you'd be lucky to even get an empty seat next to you.

  • Now you're very well likely to get an entire road to yourself.

  • Millions of people around the world are terrified to fly due to coronavirus concerns.

  • Just this past Tuesday in the U.

  • S.

  • Under 550,000 people were screened by TSA one year ago.

  • On that same day, the number was over two million.

  • And even people who would like to fly internationally can't because of all those border closures.

  • But get this.

  • There are some people who miss flying so much that they're actually paying to get on a plane that takes them nowhere.

  • Qantas Airlines decided to offer a sightseeing Onley flight in Australia, which sold out in 10 minutes.

  • I don't know if I'd go that far, but to be honest, I do kind of miss flying all the time.

  • The weirdest thing for me right now isn't the whole wearing the mask thing.

  • It's the overall anxiety throughout the process and the fact that you can't even tell if your fellow passenger is smiling.

  • Which is why I did give my flight attendants plenty of thumbs up back to you, Carl.

  • We are five weeks and a day from Halloween.

  • It's on a Saturday this year.

  • And as faras traditions are concerned, the U.

  • S Centers for Disease Control says many of them should be avoided out of concerns over the spread of coronavirus.

  • So none of this, according to health officials.

  • And they say a costume mask is not a good enough substitute for cloth protective masks.

  • Indoor costume parties, haunted houses and hate rides are also on the CBC's list of higher risk events.

  • So what does it say?

  • People can do safely carve pumpkins, decorate your own home, have online costume contests and family movie nights?

  • The CDC says all Halloween activities should depend on how Maney Cove in cases of community has.

  • But these air guidelines, not the law.

  • We told you a couple weeks ago how Los Angeles County, California, did make a law against trick or treating.

  • A lot of people opposed that less than a day later, officials said it would be allowed just not recommended for 10 out of 10 today when horses fly.

  • This is a horse.

  • Her name is Lola.

  • Is she a show horse?

  • Lola recently fell down a 60 ft ravine in California and because the terrain around her was so steep she couldn't be walked out.

  • So rescuers with the Orange County Fire Authority came in to help.

  • They sedated her, hooked her up to ah, harness and Lola took flight.

  • Thanks to their efforts, she was safely reunited with her owner when everything was still up in the air.

  • She probably thought, I can't believe this.

  • First they tell me I can't trot out of here.

  • Then they dress size me up in a harness.

  • I'd be a little saddle about it if it weren't so uplifting.

  • And I am chomping at the bit to see my owner.

  • So I guess I'll peg.

  • Is shash up garlic juice horsing around on CNN.

  • 10 fondue lack high school.

  • We are bond of you and fondue lack Wisconsin, and we hope everyone watching worldwide has a wonderful weekend ahead.

  • Mhm.
