9:37 am
everything that donald trump represents. absolute is is the closest our country has ever a e to outright electing facist. if people think i'm off my rocker for that statement, if history, europe in the 1930s, fascism started the single time, by fear, coalescing people around other.f xenaphobia. he is the quintessential definition of doing that. if people don't think something like that is possible to happen ere, they're not paying attention. that is exactly what is happening. add, her note, if i might just boycott also vote of republicans because what they are doing with the supreme court nominee. i will not vote, people don't hold people accountable. when the republicans, you know, shut the government down, it was overwhelmingly unpopular, only
9:38 am
to see 2014 be a republican wave. don't hold people accountable and republicans count on not being held accountable. what they are counting on by not holding a hearing and mayor garland and point to democrats doing it with he person name is slipping me right now, in the '80s, but that person received both hearing and a vote. and the republicans unfortunately are right, they're ot going to be held accountable. now senators like cruz and even mccain, honorable people saying not approve anybody if hillary clinton gets elected. essentially only republican president consist nominate supreme court justices. his is outrageous, how are people not out rage body this and boycotting republicans period. linda is a donald trump supporter. call nothing from maine this morning. morning. caller: good morning. thank you for c-span. for trump because i truly believe he's trying to make a he has issues,
9:39 am
sometimes the way he speaks, but o does hillary clinton and hillary clinton has proven that trustworthy and obama is the same way and he's prejudice person i've known. but brought nothing, controversy and havoc to our want to say ijust that trump gets elected. host: all right, anne, clayton, next, third party supporter. which candidate are you supporting? hello.: i am immigrant and looking at united states of and i can see that what context of in the other countries, what already there.d
9:40 am
i will tell you why i don't want vote for hillary clinton and trump, i don't want to vote for represents ase she future, where rich people will be even richer and poor people will be poorer, even poorer than they are now. represents the american america didn't have so many immigrants that they now. but i'm afraid that now it's too late. was running 10 years ago, it would be greater chance for him to win. many americans don't understand how many immigrants the united here in
9:41 am
states. -- ofat's why i am voting course i'm a citizen of the united states already for 30 years, and what i'm voting, i'm party for the green candidate. host: you say a citizen for 30 every have you voted in election in those 30 year? caller: yes, yes. lways voted for third-party candidate, yes. than now.her reasons i would really want to contribute, you know, to kind of preserving america. i don't want it to fall apart like happen to other countries because i already consider this as my country, i lived here for that i really don't see because i help really don't thapt globalist it is and i'm afraid that
9:42 am
too late because so many immigrants already here. you ever gotten involved in politics more than voting? have you gone to work for a or something like that? caller: yes. helping with bernie sanders campaign. message was very it was a and i think better future than with clinton, because he's more honest politician, obviously. unfortunately, it didn't happen. host: what do you think bernie is politically? do you see another run down the him? for what do you want to see from the andidate you supported in the primary? caller: right. so when i see for bernie unfortunately many people and that i was hose working with, when we were were go iing,
9:43 am
canvassing, going to people's houses to talk to people, of them got , many what ointed in bernie, so support. lost too much and many of those who wanted to believed im and who him now vote for trump. that is what i see. all right. that is north carolina, time for ew more calls, want to step away to focus on a story about security, cyber especially on a night on election night when so many rely to get information about the results and the future of the country, here is a recent from politico, media vulnerable to cyber attack, author of dman is that story, darren joins us by phone. what is the sohn,
9:44 am
biggest concern in the cyber it comescommunity when to media vowelenerabilitys? hat have they been working on the most as they try to prepare for election night? guest: there are a couple cyber nt avenues that security experts are worried about that hackers themselves i looking at this election and thinking about ways to cause mischief. pretty t way would be major style bringing down of the internet like we saw two or ago with the giant ddos attack that made a lot of unusable. just imagine what it would be like tomorrow if the internet for election ble workers as they try to other, cate with each with people trying to get to polls and figuring out via togle map where is they need go, people doing last-minute research on the candidates, hard anyone has not been paying attention to the when on, but last day is
9:45 am
procrastinators might look things up. if they can't, that might be and esting development could really have impact on turnout. is the websites organizations themselves, if the news organizations are brought down or if they are manipulated in shape or form, see results being manipulated. the press is vulnerable target and the most softest target that have, kers might want to as well, given the network they have to get results from of precincts across the country and call races f. hackers were to mess around with one of the results and do something to change them or at to think they e are different, you can cause oace and confusion leave the results up for debate and otentially challenge at least politically speaking here in these next 24 hours. note k it is important to the election results are not
9:46 am
official tomorrow night, those will take a couple weeks. confusion and coace with respect to the media, if it gets hacked, ouldn't affect the ultimate outcome of the election. host: i know you talked to the when have theys, said about preparing for this and how big of a concern it is them? guest: the associated press didn't want to go too deep on discussing surety precautions but said they have taken them into account. published that article a couple weeks ago, there have efforts by and cyber security experts who have found a lot of vulnerability associate press' network. a couple years ago their twitter put out as hacked and ake hoax alert that said that the white house was under attack and the stock market spiralled in those few moments. necessarily take ap network, it could be the twitter account or facebook page that ould cause confusion we're
9:47 am
thinking about here. host: in terms of preparation, difference between preparing for a hacker trying to get into files, versus trying to prepare for a targeted attack rom a state actor, when it comes to spectrum of preparation, much you can do if ou're on kind of the state actor end of that spectrum when attack? to a tieber guest: they're certainly spending, news organizations millions illions and and millions of dollars to do proper test on hygiene to see if websites are secure, make sure networks are secure, try and of course do all sorts of password protection efforts that you hear in a lot of news trained on s being double authentication, so if you ry to get in your e-mail account you will get your password subject to your phone. doing things like that. security experts warn everything in the world is pretty much hackable and we have seen it.
9:48 am
when the government gets hacked or the intelligence agencies are white house is hacked, members of congress hacked, news organization in some respects vulnerable and can spend as much money as they want. f a hacker, especially foreign state actor, iran or north korea wanted to mess with election by after news organization, probably success envelope doing that. host: any involvement by the to try to help in preparation and if so, how is hat being received from the media that likes to be seen as ndependent as completely independent? guest: great question. they are aof this, warning news rganizations, meeting with the debate preparation, excuse me, debate moderator including your colleague of c-span and other major networks, helping hem think about it and sort of going analogue with respect to preparation and not putting via s online and sharing
9:49 am
e-mail, but using paper to prepare in terms of questions. is definitely warning the news organizations what to do. on the flip side, absolutely, loathed talking to law enforcement and the government they themselves are a delicate it is line here. the warnings coming from the homeland security department attacks on state secretaries of state websites websites l government with respect to how they will be handling the election is news nly something the organizations are aware of and taking into account. samuelsohn, senior policy reporter with politico, appreciate your time this morning. having me.ks for host: should note for viewers, this topic was discussed on program that aired yesterday, election assistance commission chairman thomas hicks joined our program and amid part talked aboutssion,
9:50 am

9:51 am
for someone who is very much our current president. neafite, does al not understand how government works sdshgs not know how the government are run. and he will get less done than current president. there are two kinds of people in the world, there are people who others first, the people who help themselves first, have to decide which one donald is. but i ask you why did he take so to come forward? i believe it's because he is who climbs the ladder of power. after having achieved all the he could behind the scenes, he's trying to come out of the seams because here is nowhere else to go in terms of power. i want everyone to vote and hank you for doing so and
9:52 am
please, let's all be rationale, thank you for your time. head to the line for donald trump supporter, cheryl, gardner, kansas. good morning. caller: fwd morning. my comment is that i wonder what kind of message it sends when going to be e electing the first woman president, who would be commander-in-chief. but she has to run on other platforms. barack obama's and bernie and she's got to save another man's legacy. host: okay. line. on the third party lawrenceville, georgia. good morning. caller: good morning. yes. i'm supporting gary johnson and appeal to make an any undecided left out there on gary johnson.
9:53 am
one is theoretical and one is assuming that gary could actually win the election, the vote for him is that it is obviously our political duopoly is dysfunctional. no matter who wins tomorrow, hat moving forward is going to be a bit of a -- difficult and are y to know how things going to play out. we have two dysfunctional candidates. is going to be the president f. gary johnson were to be two people inhave the white house, we'd have vice president, both of whom worked with democratic and state houses who know how to cross the line and get things done. they have some core values. they are the only possibility of ing this divide between someone relatively
9:54 am
objective in this seat o. a practical level, he's probably to win, but he's pulling close to 5%. f people want a third party, this is your opportunity to get a third party recognized as a pulls 5% of . he the vote, ballot access laws be on the we will ballot as libertarian party will the ballot moving forward and there will be -- have the $100 ty to collect the million worth of funds that the i.r.s. collects from your taxes year. host: if he doesn't reach that threshold, darren, what happens the libertarian movement, the next libertarian candidate? going to movetely forward, regardless of what appens fthey pulled three or four percent, more than we pulled pulled. it is a shot in the arm. i hate to say it. is the best thing
9:55 am
that ever happened, and hillary the on that happened to libertarian party. it has a good, the future will be good for the libertarian will take a bit longer. host: one story in the section "washington post," margaret celllivan's column. media's 13 l bad, best moments of campaign 2016 about the big stories that broke and the journalist who broke them. two on the list, suzanne craig's mail call.
