News On the Move: Amazon workers with COVID-19, FLOTUS secretly recorded, Tech CEOs subpoenaed

Yahoo Finance's Adam Shapiro and Julie Hyman break down the biggest news stories of the day.

Video Transcript

JULIE HYMAN: Time now for News on the Move. Nearly 20,000 Amazon workers contracted coronavirus this year, according to data released by the company. Amazon counted 19,816 presumed or confirmed cases between March 1 and September 19. That's 1.44% of its 1.37-million-person workforce. Amazon had previously resisted calls from labor groups, politicians, and regulators to release those numbers.

ADAM SHAPIRO: First Lady Melania Trump was secretly recorded by a then-friend saying harsh things about Christmas. Stephanie Winston cough, who was a close friend of the first lady and recently released a book called "Melania and Me," played those recordings on CNN in which Melania Trump says, quote, "I'm working my expletive off on the Christmas stuff that, you know, who gives a expletive about the Christmas stuff and decorations? But I need to do it, right?"

JULIE HYMAN: Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act is under close scrutiny with the Senate Commerce Committee voting yesterday to subpoena CEOs at Twitter, Google, and Facebook for a hearing. Now that hearing, likely to be held before the election, will discuss reforming Section 230, which offers tech companies protection from liability over content posted by users.
