we are your anchor team here on cnn for the next two hours. hey, everyone i'm errol barnett. welcome to our viewers in the u.s. and all around the world. >> i'm rosemary church. coming up this hour jailed for more than a year in egypt. right now, an australian journalist is free and heading home. >> despite negotiations with isis a japanese journalist apparently beheaded. concern now centers on a captured jordanian pilot. super bowl xlix an instant classic. all right. first this hour an australian journalist who served 400 days in an egyptian prison is said to be immensely relieved and desperate to come home.
>> the al jazz ear a journalists were sentenced to seven to ten years for supporting the outlaw muslim brotherhood. >> earlier his family said they grateful and ecstatic that he's been released. >> he is currently with our brother mike in cypress where he's gathering his thoughts at the moment. he's safe healthy, and very very happy to be on his way home. >> however, gresta's colleagues remain behind bars. all three have maintained their innocence. >> more on now officials were able to secure the release. >> reporter: the release of al jazeera's peter gresta had been in the works for weeks. it began when the egyptian president issued a decree that he could deport foreigners held in egyptian prison. fast forward to today. the general prosecutor in cairo sent the paperwork to the
president to get the journalist deported. the minister of foreign affairs worked with the australian embassy to get him out of the country this afternoon. we haven't heard anything yet but when he called after getting out of jail he said "what australian voice do you want to hear? it's peter. " "we're told it's not deportation, it's extradition. it's unlikely he will see the inside of an australian prison as australia has been a strong advocate to get him released. that leaves the two other journalists. one is a dual national and could be relifted like greste. only if he denies his citizenship. this is painful as he sees him
as a proud egyptian. muhammad only holds egyptian nationality nationality, but his wife is hopeful that if two are released that her husband will be released, as well. christopher warren joins us from sydney federal secretary for the media, entertainment, andars al -- and arts alliance. you lobbied for the release. what's the your reaction to the fact that mr. greste is free? >> we like that he's free to rejoin his family and friends. we continue to be concerned about the other journalists. there's no reason for them to continue to be jailed. we'll continue to pray for their release. >> i know this isn't over. mr. greste's lawyer says that
egypt considers this an extra addition so legally speaking something will need to be done on the australian side. what does that mean? >> it does remain unclear. the president gave himself powers in about september last year to enable him to deport or extra indict foreigners facing extra -- ex-tradi at the d. it's unclear whether the charges will be droppeded. >> the australian government of able to milk this happen-- make this happen the
other journalists, you wonder the prospects for them considering their different nationalities. >> it's obviously much harder. but i know the canadian government has been lobbying. they have had a meeting recently between the canadian foreign minister and egyptian government. there's been talk that they are waiting to whether they will strip fahmy of his egyptian citizenship before similarly deporting him. we hope that he'll be free in the next couple days. then hopefully mohamed will be released soon. he's only an egyptian citizen and doesn't have the same options for extradition or deport. that the other two had. >> still, there are many more journalists being held. despite one being set free. what do you think is the impact the lasting message that has been sent to journalists in
egypt in the wake of all this? >> it's terrible that egypt has become over the past 18 months one of the most prolific jailer of journalists. i think apart from the al jazeera group, there's ten egyptian journalists being health in jail. it's clear -- i think greste of clear in his communications. this of never about him or the al jazeera individuals, it was about putting freedom on trial. about sending a clear message to egyptian journalists and the foreign journalists that the government of not going to tolerate debate about their actions. it's important for journalist community, those in egypt and reporting on egypt are keen to ensure that the egyptian people around the commune get a real
picture of when wasat's going on and don't allow themselves to be intimidated by what's going on. >> you and many others will keep the pressure up. we pressure you joining us. christopher warren federal secretary for the media, entertainment, and artsal line in sydney. we appreciate -- arts alliance in sydney. we appreciate your time. >> we'll have more later. we want to turn to japan where people are still reeling from the decapitation of a japanese national by isis. the family of slain journalist kenji goto issued a statement thanking the public for the outpouring of prayers and support. japan's chief cabinet secretary had a statement, too. he vowed that the country will not yield to terrorism, and it will continue to provide humanitarian aid to areas affected by isis and may even expand its efforts to help refugees. wee more now on the reaction from there. so anna you're in hong kong of
course. just give us an idea because japan is understandably shocked by the news of the murder of kenji got oh. what is prime minister shinzo abe saying about it? how is he responding? >> reporter: yeah. the country no doubt responding with angst and sorrow. you know, japan united in grief. as far the prime minister shinzo abe is concerned. he is vowing revenge. he talks about making the terrorists pay the price, to pay for their since. and if anything, this has strengthened japan's resolve to continue the fight against isis. now, it's important to remember that japan is not involved in a military operation whatsoever in this campaign. but they have been providing aid, humanitarian aid as well as nonmilitary assistance. and something the prime minister said of that we are going to increase the amount of food and medicine that we are sending to these countries involved.
prime minister abe spoke during a cabinet meeting this morning. i want to remember some of that to you. he said "we are going to fulfill our responsibility as a nation with the resolute attitude in the international community fighting against terrorism. we are not going to forgive these horrendous and despicable terrorists." we have to remember rosemary that japan has been watching this play out for, you know 12 days as has the world. you know hoping that somehow obviously the first citizen was killed a week ago, but there was such hopes this kenji goto would be saved. that the prisoner exchange would take place. sadly, that did not happen. >> yeah. of course at the this time the people of japan are mourning the loss of kenji goto. his family members understandably are distraught. we mentioned a little of their reaction. what else are they saying? >> reporter: yeah the family issued a statement this morning expressing gratitude toward those who pray for send gee
goto. this 47-year-old free land journalist who was known for going to dangerous places around the world. going to war-torn countries to tell the stories of the people on the ground. i just want to read some of the statement now. they said "in his profession as a journalist, he went to many dangerous places to cover the news and we were always ready if the worst happens. however, losing a very important family member, we are falling into a great ms.-- great misery to accept this feeping ing-- feeling of loss." father of two daughters and his mother spoke after the hideous video of her son being decapitated. she wanted people to remember him for his courage and compassion that he went to syria to save the fellow japanese citizen. that was the motive for his trip when he went in october of last
year. he was then captured in december. incredibly she said and i quote, "i don't want this sorrow to create a chain of hatred," which really is so profound coming from a woman who just lost her son in such a hideous, unspeakable way. >> it is unimageable the depth of grief she must be experiencing. his wife and, of course his two little girls, unbeknown to them what has happened to their father at this point. many thanks to you, reporting from hong kong bringing us reaction from the region. the u.s. vice president accused of a political plot. still ahead, what venezuela's president says joe biden is trying to do. plus the new england patriots crowned the new champions of the nfl. the dramatic comeback and much more from super bowl xlix.

there's a new champion winners of super bowl xlix, the new england patriots. they defeated the seahawks 28-24. in case you haven't heard, in a match-up of the two best teams in the league which came down to a dramatic goal line stan. >> yeah. came down to the last few minutes. new england quarterback tom brady was named most valuable player. he helped his team mount a colossal comeback from a ten-point deficit. brady now has four count them
four super bowl victories putting him in the rarefied air along nfl quarterbacks. >> and to talk more about this let's bring in cnn spores. what a game, what a -- sports. what a game, what a comeback. >> yeah, this is the makings to be an epic game and did live up to the hype didn't it? tom brady and the patriots were not going to let any deflate-gate discussion nikkei game. let's pick this up in the fourth quarter. seahawks up by three. just before the two-minute warning, brady comes up with the fourth td pass. finding edelman from three the yeas are out. that put the patriots up four. with over a machine to go russell wilson throws deep. and jermaine kearse -- i don't know how he does it -- somehow comes up with the ball inside the pats' five yard line. on second and goal at the winone, wilson throws but is stopped by butler who made the super
bowl-saving interception. they win super bowl xlix. that says is all. 28-24 the final. a shocking win for the pats and a shocking loss for the seahawks. tom brady named mvp for the third time in his career. he joins joe montana with that achievement. yesterday for-- incredible for him. >> incredible considering he was mired in the deflate-gate controversy. fans saying this guy's a liar. today he's being credited with allowing the patriots to win yet again. he just came from scandal to being the undisputed best. >> we heard him speak this week saying we've put this behind us we're focused on the super bowl. i was like yeah yeah. we'll see how it goes over. >> that seems to be how it's playing out. >> a vicious competitor. he did put that behind him. it was almost like he had a chip on his shoulder. this brought the patriots together. they came out on top. tom brady now has four super
bowl rings. not many guys can say that. >> people saying he is the best quarterback ever of all time. >> this certainly puts him in that conversation. this is his third super bowl mvp. his fourth super bowl ring. hee just getting it done year after year. and there's talk, is he going to retire after this? i don't think so. he looks great. >> relatives have said he's not interested in retiring any time soon. here's a guy -- >> not now. >> especially not now. controversy avoided. thank you very much. great to have you here. good to see you, special occasion. now, when it comes to advertisers, it doesn't get any bigger than the super bowl. and with instant reaction on social media, a single ad can make or break some company. >> you bet. earlier, i spoke with tony case executive editor at ad week about the best and worst says ads of super bowl sunday. take a listen.
tony case thanks for talking with us. we want to look at some of the super bowl 2015 commercials which included a range of celebrities, of course. the one that really annoyed everyone is the one that was right at the start, the chevy ad. and of course as a result of that twitter exploded. talk about that. >> it's funny because we've seen this kind of tactic before. the kind of fakeout. i actually thought it was sort of clever. it was very different for that type of advertiser certainly. going become to the "sopranos" sort of fading to black finale and -- you know, it's been done before. there's no wonder that twitter blew up. it's a risky thing these super bowl ads. you're trying to be clever and can find up alienating the very people you pay millions to to try to you know, reach -- >> yeah. exactly. of course, you know some people on twitter were saying never going to buy a -- chevy ever ever ever.
you talk about alienating people upsetting people. the nationwide ad that really upset people. want to stop for a moment and just flay. -- just play that. >> wait! wait! wait! >> i learned to ride a bike -- or get cooties. i'll never learn to fly or travel the world with my best friend. they won't ever get married. i can't grow up because i died from an accident. >> you know childhood drowning is a very serious matter. a lot of people were saying was this the place? was this the time to talk about it? tony, what do you think? >> i don't think so. the thing is is i thought the tone of most of the ads this
year was right on. i thought the ones that tried to be funny succeeded in being funny. and the ones this were sort of men to be touching moving ended up being when sometimes those can come off schmalzy. but this was -- it seemed so out of place for the super bowl, absolutely. and the backlash has been incredibly negative with good reason. >> it has. the other extreme, the budweiser ad. we'll air that as we talk. this of course so cute. lots of people you can hear -- it was just extraordinary. what do you think? that's obviously hit the mark right? >> well everybody love a puppy. even though i think after this year i think we'll have puppy burnout. i don't think they'll upon to come back with a third, you know, sequel to the -- a second sequel to the puppy ad. but it's -- it was an ad that was released before the super bowl. and it had already been viewed 12 or 13 million time on youtube
in the week leading up to the super bowl. so clearly it's resonated. people really loved this creative creative. unfortunately, as you might be aware, godaddy tried to river -- to riff on it. it was a major fail. -- theyened up pulling the ad. we didn't see it. what they put in its place was fairly lame. i thought. i thought the tone of right. it was family friendly with all the scandals in professional football. i think it needed to be softer this year. again, i thought the ads that set out to be funny were. and the touching ads were that without being too schmalzy for the most part even though there were some ads that i thought were just horrendous. >> indeed upon and of course the other big thing of various movie
trailers airing. the "jurassic world" trailer aired and took people's breath away. the reaction was extraordinary. >> absolutely. i thought all the movie trailers we saw tonight -- not trailers but says ads, they. -- they felt like trailers they were so incredibly cut and produced "jurassic world." we had the "terminator" reboot the with schwarzenegger and "tomorrow land." they all looked fantastic. and this is a fantastic venue for motion pictures. i think we saw 1 2 movie ads this the super bowl. >> wow. quite the showcase. a pretty expensive venture, as well, for some. tony case thank you very much. we really appreciate you joining us. >> thank you, rosemary. certainly a great array of advertisements. and everyone's going to be
talking about the nationwide ad. >> right. >> it really hit a nerve. it was just the sense that it was the wrong time. >> interesting too, because you watch the commercials during the super bowl. some of them didn't hit any tone. they just wanted to be there. when you look at the cost, $4.5 million for 30 seconds. study show they don't really translate into more sales. anyone who can afford that is pretty sizable already. it is part of the spectacle and conversation around the states. >> people keep talking about it. >> we will took. still to come a winner storm taking aim in the -- winter storm taking aim in the u.s. how it's impacting millions. stay with us. when it comes to good nutrition...i'm no expert. that would be my daughter -- hi dad. she's a dietitian. and back when i wasn't eating right, she got me drinking boost. it's got a great taste and it helps give me the nutrition i was missing. helping me stay more like me.
