7:30 pm
carolina. tackling issues facing the economy. michael shure is there, and he joins us live. michael, who is even there on what we have been calling this under-card debate? and what are you hearing so far? >> we just saw the undercar debate for the four candidates. rick santorum, and mike huckabee, and carly fiorina, and there was an empty seat because rand paul said that he qualified for the main stage. and i said that rand paul actually won this debate, tony. it was another debate, just by not being there, there was a lot of fire and bluster, but no one was hearing it in the same theme. i always said that somebody should come into this debate and make a splash, and say something controversial and get some attention, and it has not happened and i've seen a lot of the under car debates now. >> aside from saying something
7:31 pm
that makes a splash in the headlines, did you hear anything that felt substantive? >> yes, but more of the staple. the stalk about abortion and hilliary clinton, and talk about what the great dangers our nation is facing. but when i say make a splash, they have to get off this stage if they want to get any traction. and it's not about substance, but something that gets them into the headlines. this is politics, and this is what it's about. >> so what about the main event later tonight? what are you anticipating there? >> i think that you're going to see the people at the top, now ted cruz and donald trump, the tarts of some of the other candidates, particularly mark marx, but i think that you'll see ted cruz not go after trump, but after rubio on issues of conservatism. he's getting a lot of traction in the field now in iowa and
7:32 pm
new hampshire. and even south carolina, going after marco rubio. and that's the lan for him. but he has to answer ted cruz, citizenship, whether or not he was born in canada and whether they're valid questions, and donald trump, he's going to have to play little bit of doubt in their mind. >> how does he handle this issue? and will he so to deal with it in a straight-on way tonight? >> i think that he will. you have to deal with them in a straight-on way in the debates. but the way he has dealt with it, most legal scholars said that you are natural born. and it's in the constitution. but if you are born to a parent overseas, and he was born in canada across the border, that makes him a citizen of the united states, because his mother is an american, and that's all that matters.
7:33 pm
and he's going to be talking about religion and a lot of conservative family values as well, so he's going to try to get away from canada as much as he can. >> that phrasing, natural born, i wonder how it plays with american voters who are rile under about the birth certificate issue of barack obama? >> it settled it, and moved past t. and donald trump was the rabble rouzer there, if you remember. a lot of time spent by donald trump before he ever entered the presidential race talking about this issue. and that's exactly what you said, tony, exactly what they're trying to do, plant a seed of doubt and make it questionable and make it something that ted cruz has to answer. >> let's see how that plays out tonight. and michael shure for us in south carolina. on the democratic side, bernie sanders has been gaining
7:34 pm
ground against hilliary clinton, but in south carolina, more than half of all democrats are black, and that's where hilliary clinton maintains her lead. senator sanders is kicking off a new tour to bridge that gap. and emily stark has the story for us. >> reporter: it was the kind of shoutout that a candidate doesn't want. >> [ yelling ] >> reporter: black lives matter demonstrators interrupting bernie sanders at an event last summer in seattle, forcing him to leave the stage. the group has also interrupted events with hilliary clinton and martin luther king, and this is the second time for mart o'malley. with his press secretary and issuing a racial jus platform. sander's most recent attempt to reach black voters came this
7:35 pm
week in iowa. >> many of the high schools in this country, in the minority areas are not working. >> still he faces an uphill battle. >> blacks don't trust him, don't believe in his message. >> reporter: a politics editor of the african news sight. >> they don't think that he's accomplished. and he screwed up with activists at the very beginning, so all of those things combined makes it hard for him to get a foothold >> reporter: and that's key to wing many of the democratic races, including south carolina, that's the first after new hampshire. if donald trump wins two of the white states, but he might hit a wall in south carolina where more than half of all democratic voters are african-american. a poll taken in november says that 80% of the black voters support hilliary clinton. >> she actually knows what she's talking about. there's a whole history of
7:36 pm
legacy with the clintons. and the accomplishment of the blackmon goes way back with the clintons. >> reporter: he ran the african-american vote in 2008 for then candidate, barack obama. he has heard from the clinton and the o'malley campaigns, but recently from sanders staffer, and he said that sanders is behind the surf. >> what's difficult about bernie sanders, when you look at his issues, and his record that he touts with voting rights, he's spot on, but i think that bernie's challenge in the black community, people don't know him. >> i am truly truly honored to be here. >> reporter: one person trying to change that, rapper, killer mike, sander's most vocal supporter.
7:37 pm
>> i would like to restore the vote like that. >> if any other candidate said i wish to end this illegal war on drugs. >> reporter: it's a message that the sanders campaign hopes there resonate. and on the howard campus in washington d.c., at least some are feeling the burn. >> i think that they want to help the black community. >> reporter: clinton has the black vote locked up, but as one analyst told us, few things seem certain this election year. lisa stark, aljazeera, washington. >> one of the largest banks involved in the 2008 housing bubble and crisis settled with the federal government, a $5 billion settlement with the department of justice, and that will also resolve claims from state investigations. gold an sacks was convicted of
7:38 pm
fraud, in the form ever mortgage forgiveness and refinancing. u.s. crude oil dipped below $30 a barrel this week for the first time since 2023. the blueprint glut may be good for consumers but among the members of opec, there's the interest in the decline further of oil prices, and john terrett is here. >> i know what you're thinking, i don't care about opec economies, as long as gas is cheap to me at the pump, which it is right now, and that's a fair opinion. but it's a simple equation. the more oil you pull out of the ground, the more the price of oil and gas goes down. it's good for us, but many opec members are blaming saudi arabia, for over producing, and trying to get back at iran and even us here in the united states. low prices at the pump are great for road trips, but in the oil cartel, opec, the
7:39 pm
strategy that led to cheap gas has gone too far. fuel has gone down so much, that the countries in the oil producing nations can't function properly. they are discussing cutting oil production to step the price free fall. oil is hovering around $30 a barrel right now, but according to the imf, the break even price is far higher. saudi arabia, more than $100 per barrel, and slightly less for other key exporters, but still well above where oil has been trading for weeks. only this week, bp cut 4,000 jobs. the blame is being laid square at the door of the biggest producer, saudi arabia. >> the saudis are saying, we're not going to see market share to producers of oil, particularly iran and iraq. >> reporter: and it's not just the middle east that the saudis are concerned about.
7:40 pm
they're irritated at washington d.c. too, not least making nice with iran in the wake of the nuclear deal, and a new producer with new technologies and discoveries, allowing private producers to add jobs and reduce long-standing dependency on foreign sources of oil. >> this is part of a broader collapse that's going to affect china and all of developing world. >> after the mix, you have china and a recipe for cheap oil as far as anyone can see into the future. arab nations have a history of holding the world ransom for oil. back in 1973, out of the headlines and the price of the barrel shot up $3 more here in the united states, it became nopals the first oil shock. the same thing is happening today but in reverse. there's no guarantee, and opec will do anything to up the price of oil.
7:41 pm
and all sides seem not willing to budge. enjoy the cheap prices but the effect that it will have on the global economy in 2016. if countries like nigeria get their way, there's talk of it in march. >> thank you. and mothers of missing schoolgirls in nigeria are losing faith that they will ever be rescued. we have more now. >> reporter: her daughter, dorcas, is one of 200 schoolgirls kidnapped by boko haram more than two years ago, and she and the others are still missing. esther and want family members in support of the missing girls are march together president's office, demanding more information on what the government is doing to find them. nurse marks exactly 21 months

[ unintelligible ] >> reporter: there have been many demonstrations like this, calling for the government to do more. many thought the new government, which came to power last may, would find the girls. during the campaign, he promised to make their rescue the government's top priority if elected, but that did not happen. many of these family members and support supporters of the mg schoolgirls are angry. they said that the president recently admitted that the government has no firm intelligence or information on where the schoolgirls are. president buhari, the top government officials and military personnel addressed the families. they said that they're still
7:43 pm
looking for the girls, and they have rescued over 3,000 people from boko haram in the last few months. >> went to bring them home. >> reporter: but campaigners say that eight months after coming to power, not enough has been done by the administration. >> if i had to use a word, it's disappointed. we expected much more from this administration. the rescue of the girls, and two, the efforts are ongoing, and how can we assure that there's communication and feedback between the government and the people who are the victims of this issue. the parents, and the community. communication has been nothing. >> reporter: the girls have not been seen or heard since they appeared in a boko haram video in may of 2014. many of the families say that they are trying to not loss hope, but with every day that

7:48 pm
them able to call upon the president, vladimir putin. >> he claims to have a friendship with him. and things are smoothed over. how troubled are you since russia has denied any doping? >> well, it's troubling to hear that. we don't know whether it's true, it has been said. and there of been some somewhat bizarre and potentially troubling contradictions between what he has been saying in recent weeks and months. >> reporter: one of the accused in the report, former russian track federation president, responded totha the report offers no proof, and only conjecture. the governing body said that it's meant to protect the sport. and instead, it's complicit in the public. charged by french prosecutors for active corruption, but covering up doping with alleged
7:49 pm
bribery and extinction. the new president has been rebuilding trust, and the corruption happened during his vice presidency. [ unintelligible ] ment. >> chase that we can make are actually taking place now, and they can be very swift. >> is there any word of you stepping down? >> i have a job to do, and i will see this job through. >> reporter: the german journalist who exposed the election for the investigation. >> here, we talk integrity of the competition. if you allow dopers to compete at the olympics and take money for that, then you ruin the competition itself.
7:50 pm

7:51 pm
>> you have many complaints, and why don't you just take it down and bring it up again? >> because this is a monopoly we're dealing with. these sports federations are a monopoly, largely unaccountable and not trans parent, and they're good old boys clubs. in a parallel society outside that you and i would be subjected to, but corruption flourishes in the world. >> so corruption is embedded in the system. and sebastianco ends up being the man? >> mr. pound lost a lot of credibility with me when he suggested that the vice president long-term of this organization, who has been onboard for years, when the top
7:52 pm
leaders were allegedly involved in all of this impropriety, we're talking about multiple levels of leadership. and mr. ko is the person to bring it around? with apologies to mr. ko, we need a cultural change, and the only way to replace that is with top leadership. it should not be tolerated now. >> how does this happen? we have seen old boy's clubs busted up before. where does the pressure come from to bust this up? >> you know, i think it's time -- it comes from society. they're outside of the norms of society. and its time for society to demand to renegotiate the relationship. we're talking about a culture that has it's own justice system outside of the norms of generally normal justice. these people are judge and jury of themselves, and we have to
7:53 pm
