tv Erin Burnett Out Front CNN December 16, 2014 4:00pm-5:01pm PST
at wolf blitzer or at cnn sit room. and you can watch us live or drv the show so you won't miss a moment. thanks very much for watching. i'm wolf blitzer in "the situation room." erin burnett "outfront" starts right now. "outfront" next, terrorists murder school children and the gunman said to have enough ammunition to go on for days. could if happen here. and tonight a special investigation into the rolling stones story about a gang rape at the university of virginia. new details about the woman who made the horrific accusations. her spreads speak out. this is a story you must see to believe. and the sony hackers with a chilling message. remember september 11, 2001. they are threatening to attack on christmas day.
good evening. i'm erin burnett and "outfront" tonight, the breaking news, 132 children slaughtered at their school by terrorists. in a warning heard around the world, including here on american shores, a u.s. official tells cnn the scope of the attack was quote, unprecedented. 13 others were also killed during the hours' long siege at a school in pakistan. the attackers were members of the pakistani taliban. they burst into an auditorium. students were sitting there taking an exam and sitting ducks. they were gunned down within minutes. a pakistani military official said [ inaudible ]. and tonight we are learning new details from another major terror attack, the deadly hostage situation in sydney. we are learning about what went on during the 16-hour siege. but first to barbara starr at the pentagon with the latest on the terror attack at the school. barbara, it really does, it just
makes you stop and feel sick to your stomach when you imagine the kids quietly taking an exam, sitting there in that room. i know this happened in pakis n pakistan. the group has a long history of targeting the united states that was responsible. >> reporter: evening, erin. horror of what happened in pakistan. this is a group well-known, the ttb or pakistani taliban have a long history of brutal violence and behind attacks here in the united states. back in 2010 they were said to be behind the failed attempt to set a bomb in new york's time square. in 2009 they attacked a cia base in afghanistan killing seven cia agents there. they have repeatedly vowed to attack the united states. whether they are capable of actually lunching an attack overseas outside of pakistan would remain to be seen but today's event inside of pakistan, absolutely horrific.
condemnation from around the world about what they have done. they have claimed this is a revenge attack they launched against the pakistani military for coming against them, but the u.s. view very strongly is that it wants to see pakistan succeed in putting these taliban leaders completely out of business. the u.s. security interest here of course is to have a stable pakistan, and the pakistani taliban interest has sewn as much havoc as possible. >> thank you very much. and the attack in pakistan is the second major terror event in two days. both attacks and locationsali pe go -- locations people go to every day. a school and a coffee shop. now we have more on the attack in s.i.d. knee. the 34-year-old manager tori johnson was trying to wrestle the gun from the hostage-taker when he was killed. and 38-year-old katrina dawson.
the mother of three was killed trying to shield a pregnant friend from the gunman. also tonight, witnesses speaking out, giving chilling new details about the 16-hour siege. we have them for you. andrew stevens is "outfront." >> live breaking news for us right here in the middle of the cbd in sydney. heavily armed police are converging on martin place -- >> reporter: this was how much of australia first heard of the country's deadly hostage crisis as it unfolds across the street from the seven network studios in the heart of sydney. >> within minutes the newsroom was at the window. >> and the girl, how would you describe it. >> it will remind me for the rest of my life, she was shaking and i can't think of what was going through her mind. >> this camera said police asked him to stay behind. they trained on the crisis unfolding across martin place.
>> backing the police command, they were asking for shots and we put on kevlar vests an came down. >> they capture the despair of the hostages and the growing aggravation of the gunman. transmitted not to air, but to police h.q. many moving to a back-up location across town. >> we always have a plan, a disaster recovery plan where we might be evacuated and how do we keep it going. so after the police rushing in and saying to evacuate the building, and we think we have to keep this on air as well, we gradually started implementing that part of the plan. >> for 16 hours parker kept the cameras rolling. the end came quickly. a single gunshot and six seconds later, he said, he saw special forces entering the cafe. >> it was like nothing i've ever seen before.
the moment he crossed the line of taking down a hostage, it was a forced action from police. in my mind and probably in anyone else's seeing it, i don't think they'll sit around and wait for another hostage to have the same fight. >> reporter: and erin, this is the scene here in sydney. it is just about 11:00 in the morning and if you look behind me you see this ever-growing field almost now of flowers. a memorial, a shrine to the people who lost their lives and also an act of defiance, a solidarity move if you like for the people of sydney to come together to show they are not going to be changed by this attack. this terror attack by what is described by as a lone gunman. that they are going to continue to live their lives as they always have. but it has been a very, very tragic reminder that australia will not be untouched by the
acts of terror we are seeing increasingly around the world. people here say they are defiant and will continue to go on as before, erin. >> thank you very much. a poignant picture there. look at those flowers. and now the former fbi director tom fuentes and james spider marks. tom, let me start with you. this is image is in the mind of americans. every person goes to a coffee shop. and when you see the flash bangs going off and storming into the cafe, think about your own cafe or coffee shop. it is a terrifying thought. can america truly be ready for this kind of situation and attack? >> well, in a way, erin, yes. because the readiness is to deal with any hostage situation and the response to it would be very similar, no matter who is holding the hostages and why. you would try to determine that, obviously. but the standard steps taken by a s.w.a.t. team and then an on-scene commander to set the
perimeters and determine the hostage takers and the hostages, the whole setting would be similar to any of our agencies around the world dealing with this. >> spider, one expert told me he thought something like this would happen within the united states within months. is there any way to stop it? >> well there is no reason to believe that it wouldn't happen. we have an open society. we've achieved a level of freedom that we don't want to eliminate. we don't want to further reduce. we certainly lived through that post-9/11 and we created new procedures that have been in place and a new normal. in fact, there is some -- we've given up freedoms and learned to adjust to those. but to tom's point, we have the inherent capability to respond but the issue is how do we get ahead of that. what are the institutions and the intelligence-sharing aspects we can have in place, what can we do of a priority to make it
that much more difficult. we can't stop something like this everywhere but we can make it a heck of a lot harder through the diligence of a number of agencies that are involved in -- routinely involved in this type of activity. >> former cia counter-terror director phil mud told me there could be a thousand or more people in the united states right now that are capable and want to do this. just putting a number to it, i think makes you pause. it is dumb founding. >> erin, if i could add real quick, a thought here. the australians broke up a plot that involved multiple people just three months ago in september and it was orders from at-large from isis to -- in a downtown area of sydney and in the same martin place, grab an innocent person on the sidewalk and behead them and put that out on the internet. the authorities were able to break up that plot because multiple people were involved and extensive communications were involve and they were able
to track it and intercept it. but when you have one lone person to read that person's mind and there are thousands of people in a are sociopaths and have records and demonstrate pro-isis type statements, so read their line and when they will cross the line is something the police there and here can't do. >> barbara starr reported in this horrific attack the slaughter of 132 children today and the terrorists had enough ammunition to siege it for days. they had supplied and foot and had gone in for that event. and the size and scope of that assault is unprecedented. we know the taliban has a large attempt to attack the united states, even time square. could a real attempt here be a possibility. >> oh, absolutely. there is every reason to believe the united states is vulnerable. the key issue is our ability to stay engaged at multiple levels
in terms of our exchanges, our intelligence exchanges that exist and the transparency we can achieve through diplomacy and through presence. the united states has to have a physical presence that allows us to better understand what the threats might be elsewhere so that we can prevent those that are home-games from the pakistani to being home games in the united states. it is a level of engagement. it is what i call a new normal. we are in a situation now, erin, where we must accept this type of behavior as normal, not shirk away from it, but it should still us in terms of being engaged much more aggressively in this. >> thank you very much to all of you. we can accept it as not seen as normal the first time if it does happen here. "outfront" next, our exclusive investigation into the rolling stones story about a gang rape at the university of virginia. people are speaking to cnn and questioning important parts of
her story and whether they were fabricated. did you suspect at that time that this guy maybe didn't exist? >> no. at the time, it all seemed very real. >> that exclusive report is next. plus surveillance video of a black man in an ohio walmart shot and killed by a white police officer while he was holding an air rifle, a toy. his father is "outfront" tonight. and the sony hackers saying they will attack movie goers who see the "interview." promising a 9/11 type of attack.
dad,thank you mom for said this oftprotecting my future.you. thank you for being my hero and my dad. military families are uniquely thankful for many things, the legacy of usaa auto insurance could be one of them. if you're a current or former military member or their family, get an auto insurance quote and see why 92% of our members plan to stay for life.
but i've managed.e crohn's disease is tough, except that managing my symptoms was all i was doing. and when i finally told my doctor, he said humira is for adults like me who have tried other medications but still experience the symptoms of moderate to severe crohn's disease. and that in clinical studies, the majority of patients on humira saw significant symptom relief. and many achieved remission. humira can lower your ability to fight infections, including tuberculosis.
serious, sometimes fatal infections and cancers, including lymphoma, have happened; as have blood, liver, and nervous system problems, serious allergic reactions, and new or worsening heart failure. before treatment, get tested for tb. tell your doctor if you've been to areas where certain fungal infections are common, and if you've had tb, hepatitis b, are prone to infections, or have flu-like symptoms or sores. don't start humira if you have an infection. ask your gastroenterologist about humira. with humira, remission is possible.
an "outfront" investigation on exactly what happened at uva on the the night a student claimed she was gang raped at a fraternity. the story was first reported by rolling stone and sent shock waves around the campus and the nation. tonight we have stunning details about the woman who made these explosive charges. cnn has spoken to three friends of jackie and they now believe she may have fabricated important parts she told the magazine, including the man at the center of all of the allegations. so did that student, who she claims took her to a party where she was gang raped, even exist? sara ganham has this special "outfront" investigation only here on cnn. >> reporter: the night a brutal gang rape allegedly happened here at uva, the victim, jackie,
told her story in vivid memory to her two friends. >> her lips were quivering and she looked like someone who had been through a traumatic experience. i've never seen anybody look like that before and i hope i never have to again. >> the two friends who identified themselves from the rolling stone article say jackie describes the attack as they sat at a picnic table outside of a dorm. but they say the story she told that night was much different than the rape that rolling stone publish published. >> there are major holes in the story, and i think that was in the rolling stone story. it was too perfect. >> reporter: go back to the fall of 2012 to details that ryan and alex told cnn, details that never made it into rolling stone. al em stock, ryan dunnham and katherine henley were friends together with jackie and all of them say that jackie had a crush on ryan. >> think it was clear from the
get-go that she was much more interested in me than i was in her. >> so ryan was happy for jackie when a few weeks into the semester she announced that a third year in her chemistry class asked her out on a date. >> here is jackie is a girl who didn't get a whole lot of attention from guys and you've got this third-year -- and she was very excited about that obviously. so i don't remember whose idea it was to kind of just scope out this guy and see if he was okay. >> jackie gave ryan and alex a phone number, supposedly of the third-year and they began texting the number. jackie said his name was haven moynahan. that name would come up again later. >> we texted him and pretending to be some other girl in his chemistry class. >> these are the text messages from haven. >> i really like her, describing her as super smart, hot, into
the same music as him. >> did you suspect at that time that this guy maybe didn't exist? >> no. at the time it all seemed very real. >> reporter: jackie said she had a date with haven on september 28th, 2012, the night rolling stone said jackie was gang raped. later that night she called ryan. >> she said something bad happened and could i meet her from front of the dorm. >> reporter: they met at a picnic table outside of the freshman dorms. >> she was shaking and crying and obviously scared about something. she said she was on the date and her date parked in front of his fraternity house, she said that her date said he was going up to his room to get something and asked her if she wanted to go in and she said yes. she then said that when she went into the house and went up the stairs, her date locked the door of the room once they got in there and there were five other men in the room who she was then forced to perform oral sex on.
>> reporter: but details from the rolling stone story don't match with the details from friends. in the article, jackie graphically described a brutal gang rape, involving seven men inside of five and she doesn't mention oral sex. the article also described her date as a man named drew who she met while working lifeguard shifts together at the university pool. but remember, back in 2012, her friends said she told them his name was haven and they met in chemistry class. the article has other inconsistencies according to the two friends. >> the article says that she was beaten, hit in the face, that she was bare foot, that she was bloodied and that her face was obviously beaten. is that true? >> no. i didn't notice any sort of physical injuries or a lack of shoes. i didn't notice anything with
the description in the article. >> reporter: and the discrepancy was the reaction that jackie portrayed for rolling stone. the article said they launched into a heated discussion about the social price of reporting jackie's rape. cindy, whose real name is katherine hendley said her reputation will be shot for the next four years. and she's going to be the girl who cried rape and never allowed into any frat party again. >> katherine wasn't part of this conversation? >> no. >> reporter: katherine didn't want to appear on camera but confirmed to cnn she was not part of the conversation. both allen and ryan tried desperately to convince her to call police but she did not. they slept on the floor of her room the next two nights to make sure she was okay. five days later in one of the strangest twists to the story,
ryan received an e-mail from haven moynahan who said orchestrated the rape. >> it was from haven.monnahan at haven.com. he said you should read this, i've never read anything nicer in my life with a page of an essay that jackie had written about me. which seemed weird to me even at the time because here is somebody who allegedly just led this brutal sexual assault on a friend of mine and now he is just going to e-mail me this thing about me? >> reporter: jackie told her friends that haven dropped out of school after her rape but we've checked and no haven monnahan attended the university of virginia. in fact, we couldn't even find a single haven monnahan in the united states. the pictures of haven that he tempted ryan, we found photos
matched a man with a different name who went to high school with jackie in stafford, virginia. >> there is a very good chance whoever i was texting was jackie. there is a definite possibility. >> you heard that right. jackie's freshman friends now believe there may never have been a man named haven who took her on that date and who supposedly set up the brutal gang rape. despite all of this, all three say they still believe it is possible that something very bad did happen to jackie. >> i think it is very possible, yeah. i still think that it is extremely, extremely possible. if it only because the reaction that she had on that night seemed so strong and seemed so genuine that i still think it is difficult to believe that she would have been acting. >> reporter: erin, jacky's attorney declined to comment on this and rolling stone said they are still going back to try to fact-check the details that jackie gave them in the article
they published. now that group of friends that you saw just now, as many friends do as they go through college, they stopped being friends and stopped hanging out but that happened long before the rolling stone article was published. >> and do you have any idea where jackie is and how she's been reacting to all of this publicity. obviously the rolling stone article is one thing but all of this that came after is not what she expected. >> reporter: she is seemingly in hiding. she hasn't given any public statements or talked public at all but she has talked to some friends and we talked to them and one of them told us she is overwhelming and she did not see this coming, the fallout of this article. and another person she talked to is ryan, who described being her friend that night and hearing what she had to say. he talked to her but she just apologized for the way he was portrayed in rolling stone.
>> sara, thank you. and joining me dr. drew pinski, host of dr. drew on call. so based on the new reporting, her friends say jackie may have made up the person who took her on a day and she could have been the one texting and e-mailing them when they thought they were communicating with this upper classman. this would be an elaborate hoax if it were true. what do you think? >> it would be an elaborate hoax and it puts her, if she did this, in a wild category of criminality or extreme manipulation and lying like such as somebody with a bad personality disorder, or just sort of a dumb kid trying to get the attention of a young male. but the reality is that this kind of behavior is more likely to be attached to real problems. >> and especially their theory is, her friends, to get one of them jealous, one of the boys jealous because that is why they
think -- >> and that is a possibility. but if you add it to the other distortions that follow in the allegations of rape, then it starts to paint a different might. >> and as you point out, her story two years ago, and she's still now telling the story to the media. now dr., drew, that gets to a question. jackie is still a student at uv a. if this story is truly manufactured as her friends say and some has shown. for example the fraternity didn't have a party the night this happened, how can someone function at a school like this university by suffering from the issues she has. >> she is still relatively announcement amongst the students so no one would know she had done this. but how could somebody who had been through this trauma function at a high level in an
academic institution. but it is not necessarily the case she had to step out or she might have briefed out for a beef period of time or taken a lighter load. there were many ways she could have gone on and survive. and at colleges there are age-specific treatments available where they do capture these kids and do a great job with them. >> and you talk about how incredible this would be if it was a personality disorder. her friends say, look, that even though they say she embellished the story, made a lot of it up to the rolling stone, they still believe something happened to her. is it possible something did? and my question is, if it did, would it have necessarily been sexual to cause this kind of a story to come out? >> yeah, i think it would. this is not at all uncommon that somebody distorts a traumatic experience, particularly if they had childhood trauma. in this case, the kids that are reporting what they saw that
night may be absolutely correct, that something might have happened to this young girl, that re-traumatized her but something far milder than she experienced or reported. it is not unheard of at all for people who have been trauma survivors to severely distort their experiences and then to have very clear memories of the distorted experience. they could literally pass a lie detector test but it is pure distortion. >> dr. drew, thank up very much. >> you bet. and "outfront" next, surveillance video of the shooting and death of a black man holding a toy rifle in a walmart killed by a white police officer. our guest tonight the victim's father. and sony hackers now threatening 9/11 attacks on moviegoers for the christmas comedy the "interview." that is ahead. wood-grilled combination! maine lobster, extra jumbo shrimp, and salmon! so hurry in! and sea food differently.
and our big idaho potato truck is still missing. so my buddy here is going to help me find it. here we go. woo who, woah, woah, woah. it's out there somewhere spreading the word about americas favorite potatoes: heart healthy idaho potatoes and the american heart association's go red for women campaign. if you see it i hope you'll let us know. always look for the grown in idaho seal.
new developments in the fatal shooting of a young black man by a white police officer in an ohio walmart. the family of 22-year-old john crawford is filing a wrongful death lawsuit against walmart and police. he was holding an air rifle off a shelf when police entered the store and shot him. the police officer was not indicted by a grand jury and adding to the family as outrage new video shows him interrogating his girlfriend just after he was shot, accusing her of lying and threatening her with jail time. here is our report. >> what is going on? >> gunshots in the store. >> gunshots and a 22-year-old black man, john crawford, lay dying on the floor of a walmart in beaver creek, ohio, shot and
killed by a white police officer as seen her on surveillance video almost immediately after they approached him. he was holing a gun and talking on a cell phone. a witness called ronald richie called 911. >> there is a gentleman walking around with a gun in the store. >> does he have it pulled out? >> he is pointing it at people. >> what does he look like? >> he's a black male about 6 foot tall. >> reporter: police were dispatched to the store thinking they were heading into an active shooter situation. they didn't know it was a toy gun he picked up in the store. five weeks later 911 told the guardian newspaper, at no point did he shoulder the rifle and point it to somebody and said something limb to our affiliate chio. >> he wasn't holding it to shoot somebody. >> the place won't talk to us about richie who is an important
witness. crawford's girlfriend was waiting in the car. afterward they accused her of lying and even saying she appeared to be high on drugs. >> do you understand that we're investigating a serious incident and you lie to me and you might be on your way to jail. >> where did you get this gun? >> sir, i don't know. >> later in the 90-minute drilling word came that crawford had died. >> to let you know, unfortunately john has passed away as a result of this. what happened there wasn't a good thing. >> reporter: less than two months later, the grand jury's decision was announced. >> the grand jury deliberated and they returned no indictment. they decided that the police officers and the police officer in particular that fired the shots was justified in doing what he did. >> reporter: this weekend, cleveland browns wrv andrew hawkins honored a 12-year-old
also shot and killed by police. hawkins said he meant no disrespect to police. >> the number one reason for me wearing the t-shirt was the thought of what happened to ham ear rice happen to my little austin scared the living hell out of me. >> very poignantly put. and joining me now is john crawford iii and the attorney miebl wright. thank you for being with us tonight. john, i know it has to be hard to watch the videos again but we do have new video and this is of the interrogation, police interrogating your son's girlfriend after he was shot. she is pressed repeatedly about where he got the gun and here is what was said. >> why did he have a gun in the store? >> i don't know. >> does he carry a gun? >> i don't know.
>> don't tell me i don't know, because that is the first thing i know something isn't telling me the truth when they say that kind of thing. >> john, when you see that, how do you feel? >> i'm absolutely speechless. i'm just -- words can't express to you when i saw that clip on msnbc last night. it is ridiculous. it just -- it is a frustrating thing and i'm extremely, extremely infuriated behind it. >> michael, we are all watching this and i wanted to play another exchange the officer has with john's girlfriend. let me play that. >> your eyes are kind of messed up looking and you seem lethargic. i don't know if you are upset or what? >> accusing her of being on drugs. my question to you, michael, is what do you make the fact that this interrogation was going on for 90 minutes after john
crawford was shot, when police shot him they still weren't aware at this time that the gun was a toy gun? >> and that is a great question. we believe that at the point of this interrogation that the officers' already knew it was a toy gun. they had shot and killed mr. crawford and collected the gun so the fact that they interrogated tasha after they knew that this was a toy gun, it's unbelievable. it was as if they were trying to get tasha to illicit or to say something that would help cover up or justify why they unjustly shot and killed john crawford iii. >> john, the cleveland browns wrv spoke he wore the shirt with your son's name on during his warm-ups on sunday and talked about tamir rice who is 12 years old because he was worried this
could happen to his son, what does it mean to you that he put that shirt on and wore it, even though the police union in cleveland called it pretty pathetic and have demanded an apology? >> we're eternally grateful. it shows he has respect and he's definitely a man's man, in my opinion and in my family's opinion. he understands and he's aware of what is going on in today's society and not afraid to take a stand. it shows me he's a morally and ethically sounded person. he comes from a great family and a great state of beliefs. for him to exhibit that. >> today i know you announced a federal civil lawsuit against the police, the city, walmart and they've given us some responses. the city of beaver creek told us, quote, we believe the evidence will prove the
officer's action were justified. and walmart said, out of respect of everybody involved we believe it is not appropriate to discuss the specifics but we can say our associates acted properly. and a grand jury has already chosen not to indict. mr. crawford was shot almost immediately when police arrived at the walmart. the question is, do you think this would have happened if there crawford were white or do you think this is not about race? >> well, i'll answer that question. we believe that had mr. crawford been white, he may have gotten a little more time to respond to the police officers. these officers came in, saw mr. crawford and shot him on sight. they didn't give him the opportunity to live. they didn't give him the opportunity to respond to any commands that may have been given to him. they came in the store, they saw him, mr. crawford was standing in the same police in walmart for five minutes prior to the
officers coming in and shooting him. he was not walking around the st -- store, he wasn't waiving the gun. he was pointed facing the shelves when the officers came in and shot him on sight. >> all right. thank you very much for being with us tonight. and next, the sony hackers evoking 9/11, threatening to attack americans on christmas day when the studio releases a movie called the interview. and bill cosby's daughter speaking out about her father and attacking his accusers. that is ahead. my name's louis,
and i quit smoking with chantix. i had tried to do it in the past. i hadn't been successful. quitting smoking this time was different because i got a prescription for chantix. along with support, chantix (varenicline) is proven to help people quit smoking. the fact that it reduced the urge to smoke helped me get that confidence that i could do it. some people had changes in behavior, thinking or mood, hostility, agitation, depressed mood and suicidal thoughts or actions while taking or after stopping chantix. some people had seizures while taking chantix. if you notice any of these,
stop chantix and call your doctor right away. tell your doctor about any history of mental health problems, which could get worse while taking chantix or history of seizures. don' take chantix if you've had a serious allergic or skin reaction to it. if you develop these, stop chantix and see your doctor right away as some can be life-threatening. tell your doctor if you have a history of heart or blood vessel problems, or develop new or worse symptoms. get medical help right away if you have symptoms of a heart attack or stroke. decrease alcohol use while taking chantix. use caution when driving or operating machinery. common side effects include nausea, trouble sleeping and unusual dreams. i love myself as a non-smoker. ask your doctor if chantix is right for you.
i'm just looking over the company bills.up? is that what we pay for internet? yup. dsl is about 90 bucks a month. that's funny, for that price with comcast business, i think you get like 50 megabits. wow that's fast. personally, i prefer a slow internet. there is something about the sweet meditative glow of a loading website. don't listen to the naysayer. switch to comcast business today and get 50 megabits per second for $89.95. comcast business. built for business.

jung un, something the country. and they claim they are the instigator of the hack and outsourced it for the controversial film. tonight sony is trying to gather enough evidence to definitively point the finger at the hacking culprit. >> it is a complex nuance investigation and it involves not just going into your i.t. systems but the more sophisticated hackers have gone through multiple structures to get to where they've gone to. it is not something sony will solve in a day or a week or a month. >> reporter: it has had a devastating effect on the entertainment company with revealing information of employees and salacious e-mails of a-list celebrities. it is believed the sony hackers began penetrating the system as early as this past summer but it wasn't until later the company
reported it to authorities who began investigating in november. and in the wake of the threat today, purportedly from the sony hackers, we learned the stars of the interview, james franco and seth rogan have pulled out of all press conferences and there was a class-action lawsuit filed on bee half of former sony employees saying the company was negligent and didn't protect them. >> it is tlietenning. this risk, pamela. and next another cosby family member speaking out. what his daughter has to say about the many allegations against her father. and jenny moose on the royal baby. his shoes -- yeah, those shoes, are selling like hotcakes.
