there's a new cnn/orc poll out just this hour. it shows support for republicans in congress now at 74% disapproval. is paul ryan the guy to turn it around? let's begin our coverage with cnn senior political reporter manu raju. what's the latest? >> good morning, alisyn. paul ryan had no am bigs to become house speaker but agreed to put his hat in the ring to avoid further turmoil in his party. it's not done yet. ryan wants to be a unifying candidate. the question now is this, will a group of roughly 40 conservatives in the house freedom caucus who helped drive out speaker john boehner and torpedo kevin mccarthy's bid do the same to paul ryan? >> i have left this decision in their hands. >> reporter: the ultimatum is set this morning by wisconsin congressman paul ryan. >> this is not a job i've ever wanted. >> reporter: after days of hammering by house republicans seasonally backing him into a
corner. >> i think our country is in desperate need of leadership. >> reporter: the 45 former vice presidential nominee is stepping up, saying he's willing to replace house speaker john boehner. but not so fast. ryan says if and only if, the three largest coalitions in the gop house back his candidacy and agree to the following conditions by friday. ryan demanding that, first, the republican party goes from, quote, an opposition party to being a proposition party. >> we think the nation is on the wrong path. we have a beauty ought duty to t one. our next speaker has to be a visionary. >> reporter: >> reporter: next, requesting an update to house rules, making it harder to overthrow a sitting speaker. >> you have the freedom caucus. where you have the grass roots they're concerned about paul ryan's past. >> i think paul would be a great speaker. i think he has the skills to do the job. >> reporter: time is running out as boehner makes it clear he wants out soon. >> i expect to be out of there by the ended of this month.
>> reporter: well aware of the 100-hour workweek he frequently clocks in as speaker, ryan's last condition concerns his wife and three children. >> i cannot and i will not give up my family time. >> reporter: a family he does not want to let down. >> my greatest worry is the consequence of not stepping up. of someday having my own kids ask me when the stakes were so high, why didn't you do all you could do? >> reporter: it appears that ryan has deep support in the moderate tuesday group and another conservative caucus, the republican study committee. the freedom caucus backs another candidate who's been running for speaker, daniel webster of florida who told me he has no intention of dropping out of the race. and looming over all of this are the big fiscal issues congress must address this fall. including to avoid a default of the u.s. debt by early november. chris and alisyn. >> manu, thanks so much for all of that background. here to discuss it with us,
"time" political reporter zeke miller and editor of daily beast, jackie kucinich. john boehner's response to why would anybody want this job is, somebody has to do it, which is not a ringing endorsement. what's in it for paul ryan? why would he take it? >> he wants to do this to save the party from itself, essentially. he's never run for a leadership post. he's chairman of ways and means, which is the job he always wanted. this would really be a favor, essentially to the republican party. which is why he's saying you have to come to me. and he's not necessarily going to meet the freedom caucus halfway. it's kind of his way or the highway. an they can choose that or they can choose utter disarray because if not paul ryan, there are, you know, a host of other candidates, maybe, i mean, i can't even keep track anymore how many other people are running if paul ryan does not decide to do this.
>> you know this is politics. politics is about optics to get paul ryan in that position would be a coup for them. it's an ugly business down there, let's not forget but being the speaker of the house is a big job, zeke. what would it mean if ryan got in there in terms of how pivotal he would be with whatever happens with whomever win for president? >> democrats see him as somebody they can work together with, the president back in 2011 was pointing out paul ryan as his negotiating partner as the potential negotiating partner on some sort of grand bargain fiscal deal that never really materialized because he started negotiating with john boehner and majority leader eric cantor. we heard from congressman ryan last night, maybe soon to be speaker ryan if everything works out within his conference, that he wants to turn the gop into the proposition party. he wants to start offering affirmative legislation instead of just trying to repeal obamacare, offer that replacement that republicans -- >> not opposition, proposition.
who has numbers like this. >> let's look at it. let's pull up paul ryan's favorability, just out four minutes ago. 62% among republicans. republicans only. favorable 14%, unfavorable but what are the chances that these warring facts, these three different facts of republicans as manu raju laid out will come together to support ryan? >> that's the open question. the real question, honestly are the 40 members of the freedom caucus who have gotten themselves a little -- they have power right now. they would be relinquishing that to paul ryan. they want to weaken the speakership. they want the power to be more evenly distributed around the party itself so they have more power. it really will be convincing them that this is a good thing in order to make this work for paul ryan. >> zeke, how much do they have to do that? if he were to come in with them opposed, they've been
benefitting from a vacuum in terms of getting what jackie rightly calls their fiefdom. there are 37% republicans favorability. they need to come together. it's easier to ostracize one group than it has failed to unify because of that group. >> if the republicans pass up this opportunity to put paul ryan in that place, they're looking at for the next two, three months, maybe a year, a cycle of speakers, potentially, certainly more chaos and drama on capitol hill. you'll start seeing the candidates -- you're emboldening the outsiders who have been dominating the race, whether it be donald trump or ben carson. >> paul ryan is a modern family man, he's also insisting one of his, you know, conditions is that he needs a better work/life balance than what john boehner
had. john boehner, opened a vein for this job, basically. isn't that interesting to hear sort of the prominent man demanding that? >> it really is. but this has been a paul ryan thing for as long as i've covered paul ryan. he's been very into his kids, very into being home. he goes home every single weekend. >> sleeps in his office. >> i know that feeling. >> right. when he was vice president, you saw the family traveling with him a lot -- when he was running for vice president. excuse me. this is very him. you can see, that's going to be nonnegotiable for him. >> i think it's a window into who he is also, right? zeke, to echo jackie's point, these guys are usually nakedly ambitious. i'm sure paul ryan has his own. for him to come out and say, listen, there's balance here. just that message alone will speak well to the observers as far as insanity being part of the political realities. >> i'd rather be spending more
time at home with my family. you all want me to do this, if you want me to do this, you'll have to change for me to take this job. it's the typical washington power play that only really comes from being their last and only hope. >> i think it's the reason he has 62% favorable. having grown up in politics with a big shot as a dad, the family loses. the family feels it. >> of course. >> for him to recognize that, i think it's a reason he's favorable. >> you injected sanity into that conversation for some reason. let's talk about donald trump. we interviewed -- >> that's going to cost. >> we interviewed him yesterday on "new day." and he went further than he had before in saying that george w. bush basically knew that 9/11 was going to happen or should have known. >> should have known. >> because, he said, just so that i can be clear, he said they knew. they knew there was an attack coming. the cia director knew in advance -- >> george tenet. >> there would be an attack and he said so to the president and everybody else that would listen.
jeb bush obviously has been feuding with donald trump about this. so let me read to you what jeb bush just put out a new op-ed for the national journal. he said, let's be clear, donald trump simply doesn't know what he's talking about and his bluster overcompensates for a shocking lack of knowledge on the complex national security challenges that will confront the next president of the united states. jackie, what do you think of this feud? >> you know, when jeb bush is responding to donald trump, he's kind of losing. donald trump has gotten very good at getting right under jeb bush's skin. and when you see him interviewed, when he talks about donald trump, he looks agitated, annoyed with the fact he's actually having to address this. it seems like, this is up to his advisers, it seems like he'd be better served rising above it than continuing to get down to donald trump's level. >> the problem is, he's struck a nerve, not so much just with the bushes but the gop in general. look, even peter bergen wrote in a cnn op-ed, he's right for the
most part in terms of was there a lot of indication there was a threat? yes. was there specific information that they were going to take planes and do what they did? no. so where do you come out on whether trump is making this up? >> well, you're in a rough position of he's right in august before 9/11. there was the famous national security briefing that george w. bush got where he was warned with of a threat. he didn't know what or how or necessarily when. and in hindsight it's easy to read that the right way. what trump is doing, is tapping into this open wound still within the gop 14 years later over do they have to defend a president who is still somewhat popular or not. for trump supporters, the outsiders, folks angry at the system are just as angry with george w. bush as they are with barack obama in a lot of ways. for him to sort of isolate on that thing, forcing jeb bush to defend his brother is boosting
his own stature. >> zeke, jackie, stick around. we want to talk to you in a few minutes about joe biden. thanks so much. did you mention vice president joe biden, alisyn? >> i did. >> he's still poised on whether to make a decision to run in 2016. he's drawing sharp contrast with democratic front-runner hillary clinton ahead of a potential announcement. jim acosta has more for us now. jim. >> reporter: vice president joe biden is sharpening up his not so veiled criticism of hillary clinton sounding more like a candidate every day. last night biden was at a tribute for former vice president walter mondale. for the third time in two days he returned to what appeared to be a jab at hillary clinton that she considers republicans among her biggest enemies. biden said, talk like that is naive and won't fix washington. here's what he had to say. >> the other team is not the enemy. if you treat it as the enemy, there is no way we can ever,
ever, ever resolve the problems we have to. >> biden also tried to clear up his role in the mission to kill osama bin laden, saying yesterday that he supported the president's decision to go after the al qaeda leader, even though he had said that he had advised against that operation in the past. the vice president also appears to be beefing up his potential ground operation by lining up the support of the international firefighters union, the grupp's president, harold shapeburger has spoken to biden in the last few days and that the vice president is thoughtfully weighing a bid for the white house. we'll put this up on screen. he added his group is mobilizing to support biden saying our union is preparing as if the vice president is going to announce his candidacy. but shapeburger tried to tamp down expectations that a biden announcement is due any moment. i think the big story is, he's offering up a rationale for his candidacy, something that critics say was lacking and that would be that he would be the
third term for president obama. another contrast with hillary clinton who has been criticizing some of the president's policies lately. >> it's a no-lose for the union, right, jim? the democrat whoever it is will need them any way so they can say whatever they want. >> that's true. >> thank you very much, jim acosta. tomorrow is a very big day, not just for vice president joe biden but for the race for 2016 and all the players. because here is the day that former secretary of state hillary clinton squares off with the house benghazi committee. now, this morning, cnn is learning more about her game plan and how her supporters are already planning an attack against this beleaguered republican-led panel. let's bring in cnn senior political correspondent brianna keilar live in washington with the latest. everything can change in terms of the dynamic of this race based on what happens tomorrow. what are you hearing, my friend? >> her campaign is very aware of that, chris. what we're seeing is a multifront democratic attack on tis republican-led house benghazi committee taking shape.
the latest volley in this is coming out this morning. this is it. it is a book by correct the record which is the main super pac defending hillary clinton. it really takes aim at the committee on everything from the millions of dollars, that the efforts have cost and digs up dirt on the individual members. now, we've also learned that there's going to be a war room, correct the record will be staffing a room of about 30 employees who will be doing rapid response. they're going to be firing back on things that they hear during hillary clinton's testimony which we do expect as it did back in 2013 is going to last several hours. the clinton campaign has armed its surrogates with talking points and really stressing the democrats say that this is just a partisan sherr raid and also to say that hillary clinton is testifying to, quote, honor the memory of the four brave americans that died at benghazi. we saw the campaign put out a
five-minute video earlier this week that stressed her accomplishments as secretary of state. meanwhile, clinton has been preparing for days. as you said, this is something they view as very important and it could stymie some of that momentum she's enjoyed in the last couple of weeks, alisyn. >> we look forward to hearing more about what's in the 1 40e-page book that you got your hands on this morning. thanks so much for all of that background. breaking overnight, syrian president bashar al assad makes a surprise visit to moscow to meet with russian president vladimir putin. this is assad's first trip abroad since his country's civil war began more than four years ago. jill doherty is live in moscow with more. what happened at this meeting? >> reporter: it was a surprise. president putin himself said it was at his invitation for assad to come here. also, assad by the way, has left. it was a very quick but very important and high-profile trip, as you can imagine. what did they talk about? of course they talked about the
military operation. they talked about the situation on the ground. and then one thing that wasn't talked about or at least woe don't know that it was, that is what's the future for assad? there was a lot of attention paid to the political solution that might ultimately be reached. but the press secretary for president putin didn't say whether they actually had discussed that or not. so that's an outstanding question. i think another thing, why was president putin so interested in this? obviously, i think, the body language was very important. in the only the substance of the meetings but the fact that it happened. assad here in moscow for the first time, looking not like a beleaguered person, you know, in a basement hiding out. he was in a suit. he was in the kremlin. and he did not look particularly stressed. for president putin, it worked very well, too. he now looks like a global player and that's exactly what you got from these pictures. >> all right. >> michaela.
>> jill, thank you so much for that. >> another set of high stakes meetings set for the future. secretary of state john kerry is heading to europe and the middle east today. he'll be meeting separately with israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu and palestinian president abbas trying to stop the escalating violence between the two sides. 10 israelis, 46 palestinians have been killed in clashes this month. kerry is also hoping to reignite the peace process in syria. more breaking news of the troubling variety. a new york city police officer is dead after being shot in the head while chasing a robbery suspect. he's actually one of two officers shot in the line of duty overnight. we have cnn's alexandra field joining us now with the latest. this happened right here in manhattan. >> that's right, chris. the new york city police department mourning one of their own. this was the scene overnight in east harlem where officer randolph holder was responding to reports of an armed robbery, a 33-year-old officer approached a group of men and a chase quickly followed. sections later, bullets rang
out, holder was shot in the head. he was rushed to harlem hospital but doctors could not save him. another gunshot victim was found close by. he's expected to be charged later today. holder was a native of guyana and a five-year veteran of the force. police commissioner bill bratton spoke about the loss last night. >> four police officers murdered in 11 months. that's about as bad as it gets. six in the line of duty, four murdered in the line of duty. >> and meantime in kentucky, a standoff unfolding at this hour with a man believed to have shot another police officer. prestonburg officer adam dixon was hit in the chest late last night during an exchange of fire. he was air lifted to a local hospital for surgery. right now, no word on his condition. suspect is currently holed up inside a home, the scene remaining active there and another manhattan under way in new mexico after a 4-year-old girl was gunned down in a road rage incident.
albuquerque police say one car pulled up next to the other on interstate 40 and opened fire. the little girl was hit and died at an area hospital. authorities are asking anyone with information to come forward. it is not clear what led to the shooting of this young child. >> alexandra, these are terrible, terrible crime stories. let's hope they can get clues and resolve those quickly. why is joe biden taking shots at hillary clinton? is this in preparation for getting into the presidential race? we'll discuss.

we should not which plays on what? >> hillary clinton as you will remember, during the debate, the cnn debate last week, named the republicans in her list of enemies. so now joe biden appears to be taking a shot at hillary clinton as a result of that. >> that's your word. you decide. here's the shot. >> it is necessary to end this notion, let's end this notion, that the enemy is the other party. end this notion. that it's naive to think we can speak well of the other party and cooperate. what is naive is to think it's remotely possible to govern this country unless we can. that is what is naive. >> so is that a sot of a shot or not? sot is sound on tape. >> dr. seuss.
>> what's your read, zeke? >> i was in the back of room last night. there are 20 reporters in the back of the room and we all wrote it up as a shot at hillary clinton. it seemed very clear coming off that -- >> thank you, zeke, for supporting my position. >> that was a direct shot. that's what he's talking about. that's a direct shot at hillary clinton. why is he doing that, jackie? >> you know, gosh, your guess is as good as mine at this point. honestly. if joe biden is not thinking about running for president, he's doing a great job kind of messing with all of us at this point. it looks like he is starting to plant the seeds to give himself a basis to run. it has been looking like that door is closing. hillary clinton is stronger after the cnn debate last week. and she's going to have her benghazi testimony tomorrow, which for all intents and purposes seems like she's prepared for. you know, it really seems like joe biden is laying that foundation right now. but you know, maybe he's not. it really is, flip a coin at
this point. >> what's your guess, chris cuomo? >> my guess is, this is all very real and true as it's coming out of joe biden's mouth. he's always felt he has to be a conciliator, he always thought the key was the optics of dissension. he's always said these kind of things long before hillary clinton said what she said in the debate. i also think it is real and true that he is divided head and heart. everyone that i'm able to talk to who's close to the situation says he wants to do this but he's not sure that he can. now, the question is, can is a defined term, zeke, part of it as we know is an emotional component. what about the practicalities? i feel like they keep being neglected and what a huge task it would be with 100 days before the caucuses. >> he faces a massive fund-raising gap, hillary clinton with tens of millions in the bank, already this massive field organization on the ground. joe biden can build some of that. there are structural problems with first deadline, october 29th getting on the ballot in georgia, november 6th getting on
the ballot in alabama. he needs to make that decision soon to start fund-raising and even being a sitting vice president has advantages, there's the free podium. when you're a sitting vice president, you have to reimburse taxpayers for using the nice, fancy plane, air force two. >> who would fund his super pac? >> and by the way, history is not that kind to electing sitting vice presidents. let's put up this little graphic of how many have been successful at that in the past 200 years. it's george h.w. bush, martin van buren, thomas jefferson and john adams. you have to go back a long way to think that sitting vice presidents can be elected, jackie. >> a lot more have not been elected. have tried and failed to become president. and yes, joe biden is also probably looking at his legacy. does he want to be the guy who
ran for president a third time and lost? does he want -- you know, have that press scrutiny again that he had when he ran the last time? so there are a lot of decisions joe biden needs to make at this point. and also if you look at the polling, no one is calling for joe biden to get in right now. so it really -- i think chris is absolutely right. i think he wants to run but is it logistically possible at this point? >> let's put the numbers up jackie is referring to. here's the, what should we call it, the tolerance quotient for the waiting game. 30, 31. is there a threshold of support? yes, but it's tepid at best, right, zeke? he's not going to look at these numbers and see an answer for himself. >> this isn't like paul ryan. he's not going to be nominated by acclamation by the republican party. joe biden can say everyone has to vote, you know, support me and then i'll jump into this race. nobody is calling for him to do this. there are people worried about
hillary clinton but the debate last week, her solid performance there, the republican answer notwithstanding, left a lot of people in the democratic party sort of -- their concerns. they think she's ready for this test. yes, there are a lot of people in delaware who like joe biden and a lot of people in scranton who like joe biden. his former aides who like to talk to the press a lot like joe biden. >> let's talk about what's going to happen tomorrow in that vain. clinton will be testifying on benghazi. do you think that joe biden is waiting and watching that testimony and that will be what one of his decisionmaking factors? >> you know, he was also apparently watching the debate to see how she'd do in that and then make a decision. it's hard to say whether he's looking at that as a bellwether for sure. there is no denying this is a very important moment for hillary clinton. this isn't her first rodeo. she's testified on benghazi before. and you have to imagine that you know, she's ready for this. i think one of the biggest tests, honestly, is for
republicans on that committee, how they address her, how they ask her questions in order to get an answer rather than to show boat. as we all know, these hearings have sort of become more of a dog and pony show rather than actually getting substantive answers, these televised congressional hearings. >> she has to come in there with some anxiety as well. let's put up poll numbers. satisfied with clinton's benghazi response? only 27%. benghazi investigation fair or partisan? which is the flip side question. they say kind of the same way, same breakdown of she wasn't forthcoming enough, they're not fair enough. then clinton's private server a factor in the 2016 vote. is important, not important, don't know? the democrats and the faithful can say as much as they want. this is a nonissue. obviously these people who are being asked this question. >> it's almost divided in terms of is it important, is it not important? zeke? >> certainly this is going to be an issue for her. she has to set some of the
concerns aside. she did a really good job in testifying into 2013 when she testified on capitol hill. but for those ten seconds. she needs to be fairly -- when she says what difference does it make? she needs to be pretty darn perfect tomorrow. otherwise there will be concerns in the democratic party that she's not teflon like we saw in the debate last week. maybe there are flaws that republicans and maybe other democrats can exploit. >> thank you for previewing it all with us. great to see you guys. >> thanks. everywhere you look, donald trump. the republican front-runner monopolizing the media spotlight. so why haven't the other candidates done the same thing? could they? data? o share these guys, that's who but at t-mobile you can get four lines with up to 10 gigs of 4g lte data, each no sharing and just $30 bucks a line 10 gigs for each and every one of you

here's a news flash. republican front-runner donald trump is dominating the airwaves. but how can the other candidates take a page out of his media playbook? let's discuss that and bring in cnn contributor and author of "the war for late night" bill carter and former george w. bush political director, matt schlapp. let's dissect how donald trump has done this so effectively. bill, i want to start with you. just, for example, let me put up how many media mentions donald trump gets, this is all media, press, everything, compared to his rivals. he has gotten 18 million.
okay? this is on television, in newspapers, websites, look at the closest competitor. hillary clinton with just 5 million. bernie sanders, 5 million. how does donald trump do it, bill? >> well, he is a celebrity. he started out as a celebrity. he's also really skillful at this. anybody who spent the last 25 years in new york. he's been on the tabloids forever. i think this race is more intense than anyone expected and there's more media than there's ever been before. there's more opportunity to spread it out. he's really good at that. >> here's the crazy thing. because he gets so many media mentions, he doesn't have to spend the money the other candidates have to spend. look at the figures. just compare it to what hillary clinton has spent. this is her third quarter fund-raising and spending. okay? she has fund raised almost $30 million. she spent 25 million. look at trump. 3.9 million. he's only spent 1.5 million.
obviously media buys, advertise, that's really expensive. he doesn't have to do it. >> it's driving bernie sanders crazy. because the rich are getting richer. he flies around in first class in that big jet and help capitol kerrs. he's doing it in style. the fact is running for president has changed a lot. donald trump has brought a lot of change and innovation to the process. he has no shame. he doesn't seem to reach a saturation point and the american people can't get enough. >> i don't know if it's called flying first class when you own the jet. >> that's right. >> self-class. >> yet another level. here's the question. even i in the media don't know this, it's a chicken and egg question. are we giving him so much media coverage because he gets buzz or does he have buzz because we're giving him so much media coverage? >> i think it works both ways. you have to say, what he's doing is something people are interested in. when he does appear on "60 minutes" and certainly when he's going to be on "saturday night live," the ratings do go up. the interest is there.
it's not being manufactured. it is there and the media says we need him. he pumps up our numbers, let's book him. everyone wants to book him. >> matt, what can the other candidates do to take a page from that, what could carly fiorina do? she got a big bump after the debate and then sort of dropped off the radar. so how can they seize some of that media interest? >> well, in fairness to carly, some of these other republicans, you know, cnn aired the first democratic debate. there's all this conversation about joe biden. we're having all this conversation about paul ryan. other political topics are jumping in. but what donald trump is doing, which is so unique, if you look at the social media, especially on twitter, he's not afraid to say things that are sometimes controversial or over the line. owe says real things to people. that's what social media is all about, it's a small packet and there's authenticity and something real about it. i'm noticing the other republican candidates are getting better at social media because of it. it's not so much about hawking hats and shirts from their
campaign shirt. it's more about talking about real issues of the day. i think it makes the field better. >> matt, to your point. listen to this. this is an incredible window into what donald trump is doing according to his book "art of deal." people want to believe something is the biggest, greatest and most spectacular. i call it truthful hyperbole. it's an innocent form of exaggeration, an effective form of promotion. >> that's it. that's the definition of him. >> decades ago he knew how to play it and he continues to do that. >> it's the biggest, the greatest. people come back and say, no, it isn't. he's already said it and people like that, they like hearing it. he's getting away with saying things that other people wouldn't because of this bombastic and blustery that he's always had. carson has some out there things and it is helping him a little bit. it's a risk for other candidates. if you're a candidate who's a
politician, you get called on it more than a guy who is aa celebrity. that's just what's happening. >> last night, donald trump was supposed to be on jimmy kimmel but something happened or went wrong. let's listen to jimmy kimmel's explanation of why donald trump didn't show up. >> donald trump was supposed to be here tonight. and now he's glad he didn't come, i guess. they were cryptic as to why he canceled. they said he has a major political commitment but did want me to relay the message to you, if he had been here, he would have been great. >> so what would that major political commitment he had? >> nobody has cleared that up. these guys have public schedules a lot. it's sort of odd. that's an unusual one. i think it's also indicative, he said he would come back. i don't think he's angry with jimmy kimmel. >> but you think there's a back story? >> there must be. why would he cancel? it had been promoted. he wants to be out there.
donald usually comes through. he's reliable that way. >> we'll try to get to the bottom of that. what's your take? tweet us using #newdaycnn or most your comment on facebook.com/"new day." you probably heard there are new guidelines for breast cancer screening. it has a lot of women talking. the american cancer society says women should start having mammograms later and less often. we'll break down the new recommendations. what do they mean? we have an expert ahead. higher . soon our team of audit, tax and consulting advisors started taking the middle market to the global market. and now our network, spanning more than 110 countries, is unifying under one brand. mcgladrey is changing its name to rsm. experience the power of being understood.
why am i so awake? did you know your brain has a wake system... and a sleep system? science suggests when you have insomnia, the neurotransmitters in your wake system may be too strong, which may be preventing you from getting the sleep you need. talk to your doctor about ways to manage your insomnia.
here is the president of the former director of the ucla breast center. knows a thing or two about the matters we're going to talk about. i heard from women on social media. why are they doing this, this doesn't make sense. early detection is key. why are they delaying it to 45? overall, are you thinking that these new guidelines are the right stuff? >> i think the new guidelines are the right thing. >> really? >> the idea is we hoped that early detect was again to be the answer but what we've found is, it is the answer for some cancers. you can find them early and make a difference. some are so fast, we're never going to find them in time and some are so slow, it doesn't matter when you find them, they're never going to kill you anyway. we're prying to guide to where is the right time, the right amount of mammography. it is radiation, it is often extra biopsies. we don't need all of that. >> there are so many people that are so afraid.
let's look at the difference now. i think we can show the old standards, the guidelines, start at 40, new starting at 45. after 55, women can choose to have them every other year. explain that. that doesn't make sense. >> it does make sense. because your breast tissue gets less dense after menopause. 55 is a surrogate for menopause. now you can see three them much better, mammograms are much more accurate. every other year is fine. whereas before menopause, the breast tissue is much denser. it's like looking for a polar bear in the snow. >> the next guideline change, they're doing away with the regular breast exams by the doctors. i'm sorry, that doesn't make a lick of sense to me. >> the doctors are not that good at it. they're not trained at it. >> shouldn't they be better doing it? >> you're better at it because you feel from the inside out and outside in. >> good point. >> we don't necessarily know
what we're looking for. >> no. if you feel something that's different, feels unusual, you need to get it checked out. that's a more important message. the doctors are half the time thinking about something else and it's never been shown that a doctor breast exam makes that much difference. >> when women hear this and people hear this, they say, wait, is this just about the insurance companies trying to make sure they're not playing for these tests? it will feel true to some people. >> i know it will feel true but it's not true. it has to do with the fact that we hoped and really put too much into thinking mammograms would be the answer to all our problems, now we're pulling back to some things that are more realistic than what we're doing. >> you're saying mammography isn't the best indicator, best test to detect certain types of breast cancer? then what is? okay, i'll go with you, maybe we should not put all the emphasis on mammography. but then what? >> we have to figure out how to
prevent breast cancer in the first place. we need to take money and effort into finding cancers that are already there and figuring out how to prevent it. >> that's going to take time. in the meantime, are we going to lose women or their breasts. >> mammography isn't going to solve that. it's like the tsa. it is. it's screening. it's trying to find cancer. >> there's a patdown involved. that's for sure. >> some of them are going to get by, some are false positives. they had too much liquid but they really aren't a terrorist. and somewhere in between. so you have all the pluses and minus of it and what they're weighing is, when does it become worthwhile? when are we really saving lives and not doing too much? >> you can see also that it is crazy for the average woman at home who is caring about her health, her health is forefront in her mind. you have three different guidelines, one from the cancer
society, one from the obstetricians, one from the preventative task force. why can't we find -- >> we don't the truth. science is trying to figure it out. we are continually traying to do more much to figure it out but we don't have the answer. therefore, everybody is coming at it from their own direction, trying to make the best guess. we're getting much closer than we used to be. the american cancer society used to say 40, the u.s. task force 50. now we're 45 to 55. we're getting closer. what we try to do at the research foundation is find the cause. >> right. >> because if we could prevent it the way we can prevent cancer of the cervix and a lot of other kanss we'd be much better off. >> right. >> these new giuidelines are fo average risk women. if you're above average risk, the guidelines are different. alisyn, chris?
>> it is our duty to serve the people the way they deserve to be served. >> congressman paul ryan saying he's willing to run for speaker of the house but there's a but. >> this is a job paul ryan does not want. >> this is a huge sacrifice for that family. >> he'll get enough votes and it will be a sign of unity. >> the only two people who didn't disagree on a single substantive issue were the president and me. >> the best indicator yet that joe biden is running for president. >> hillary clinton squares off with the house benghazi committee. a multifront, democratic attack taking shape. >> we are reaching out for help everywhere. >> a young african-american driver shot and killed by a police officer. >> the officer thought he was checking out an abandoned car. police say they found this handgun near jones's car. this is "new day" with chris cuomo, alisyn camerota and michaela pereira. welcome back to "new day."
paul ryan says he's willing to help end the republican leadership crisis and take the reins as house speaker if conditions are met. here's what he wants, time with his family. >> rains are struggling to right the ship after a rough few weeks. the american people are taking notice. take a look at this. new cnn/orc poll this morning shows disapproval for republican leadership rising to 74% in the last few months. can ryan help reverse the tide? the answer to that is yes, if the party can get around him. that's the big we. cnn senior political reporter ma manu raju. >> he agreed to put his hat in the rink to avoid further turmoil in his party. but it's not done yet. ryan wants to be a unifying candidate. so the question is this, will a group of roughly 40 conservatives in that house freedom caucus who helped drive out speaker john boehner and
torpedo majority leader kevin mccarthy's bid do the same to paul ryan? >> i have left this decision in their hands. >> reporter: the ultimatum is set this morning by wisconsin congressman paul ryan. >> this is not a job i've ever wanted. >> reporter: after days of hammering by house republicans seasonally backing him into a corner. >> i think our country is in desperate need of leadership. >> reporter: the 45 former vice presidential nominee is stepping up, saying he's willing to replace house speaker john boehner. but not so fast. ryan says if, and only if, the three largest coalitions in the gop house back his candidacy and agree to the following conditions by friday. ryan demanding that, first, the republican party goes from, quote, an opposition party to being a proposition party. >> we think the nation is on the wrong path. we have a duty to show the right one. our next speaker has to be a visionary one. >> reporter: second, ryan appealing to the house freedom
caucus, making it harder to overthrow a sitting speaker. >> you have the freedom caucus. where you have the grass roots they're concerned about paul ryan's past. >> reporter: alabama republican mo brooks says there is growing concern in my district because of amnesty in open borders immigration position. >> i think paul would be a great speaker. i think he has the skills to do the job. >> reporter: time is running out as boehner makes it clear he wants out soon. >> i expect to be out of there by the end of this month. >> reporter: well aware of the 100-hour workweek he frequently clocks in as speaker, ryan's last condition concerns his wife and three children. >> i cannot and i will not give up my family time. >> reporter: a family he does not want to let down. >> my greatest worry is the consequence of not stepping up. of someday having my own kids ask me when the stakes were so high, why didn't you do all you could do? >> reporter: it appears that ryan has deep support in two other factions in the house, the republican study committee, but
the freedom caucus backs another candidate who's been running for speaker, daniel webster of florida who told me yesterday he has no intention of dropping out of the race. and looming over all of this are the big fiscal issues congress must address this fall, including to avoid a default of the u.s. debt by early november. alisyn? >> going to be an interesting week in that building behind you, manu. thanks for that. he's not a candidate but vice president joe biden now talking up his credentials and distancing himself from hillary clinton. cnn's senior white house correspondent jim acosta has more on that. what's he saying, jim? >> alisyn, vice president joe biden is sharpening up his not so veiled criticism of hillary clinton sounding more like a candidate every day. . last night biden was at eye tribute for former vice president walter mondale. for the third time in two days he appeared to return to a criticism of republicans by clinton. without mentioning clinton by
name, the vice president said talk like that is naive and won't fix washington. here's what he had to say. >> the other team is not the enemy. if you treat it as the enemy, there is no way we can ever, ever, ever real estate solve the problems we have to. >> reporter: now, biden also tried to clear up his role in the mission to kill osama bin laden saying yesterday that he supported the president's decision to go after the al qaeda leader. even though he said in the past that he advised against that operation. now, the vice president also appears to be beefing up a potential ground game by lining up the support of the international firefighters union, the group's president, harold schaitburger told me he has spoken to biden and that the vice president is in his words, thoughtfully weighing a bid for the white house. schaitburger added his group is mobilizing, saying you're union is preparing as if the vice president is going to announce his candidacy. schaitburger tried to tamp down expectations that a biden announcement could come at any moment.
michaela, what is also interesting and what the vice president has been saying the last couple days, he seems to be offering up a rationale for his candidacy that he would essentially be the third term of an obama presidency. that can be a contrast with hillary clinton. she's been criticizing some of the president's policies in roone the days. could be an interesting contrast if joe biden gets in the race. still a big if, michaela. >> seems, if, all these words, all these tea leaves. thanks so much. hillary clinton is expected to face eight hours of questioning when she appears before the house benghazi committee tomorrow. we're learning more about how she's preparing. brianna keilar from washington for us. >> reporter: there's a multifront democratic attack taking place against this republican-red house benghazi committee. this is rally the latest volley. this is a book by david brock who's hillary clinton's chief defender and his super pac "correct the record" which is working in con juction with the clinton campaign.
this is called the complete gid to the benghazi select committee, 140 pages lambasting this committee, even taking aim at the members of the individual committee. this group is expected to launch a war room tomorrow during hillary clinton's testimony. we expect that this testimony will take several hours as it did back in 2013 when she received before congress on benghazi. and the staffers are going to be responding rapidly to some of the things that she says in trying to ward off republican attacks. you also have the clinton campaign that is arming its surrogates, its supporters with talking points, saying that they want this characterized as a partisan charade and to stress that hillary clinton is testifying to, quote, honor the memory of the four brave americans who died at benghazi. of course, we do expect, chris, that republicans will be doing some of the same, some of these anti-hillary clinton pacs preparing their own war rooms as though try to take on hillary clinton as she enjoys this momentum after her debate
performance. >> well, look, there's going to be politics and optics on both sides, no question about it, brianna. what are the legitimate questions? what are the legitimate gaps and where will this benefit the american people? for perspective, alabama congresswoman martha roby. good to have you with us this morning. you have been asked before but have not answered, let's ask again, what gaps, what do you believe you need to focus on just in terms of general areas of questioning that you don't have satisfaction on? >> well, good morning, chris. thank you for having me. look, this has always been about finding out the truth. this is a fact-finding mission and this administration has been all over the place and not forthright with members of congress about what happened before, during and after the attack. this committee was put together so that we could continue to seek the truth on behalf of the
four americans that unnecessarily lost their lives. there are missing pieces. there are gaps. which is why this select committee was created in the first place, so we could fill in the gaps. >> there's no question that lives were lost, that there's accountability to be had. you get to the legitimate questions of what else are you going to learn? you had the secretary, former secretary now, for over six hours. she spoke specifically to what she knew before, during and after. she gave you answers that may not have been satisfying to you but she gave answers. she talked to you about the threat. she talked to you about her recognition of the threat. she talked to you about her response to the threat. what areas, specifically, are you looking at? >> well, first of all, there's been a lot of stone walling when it comes to providing this committee with the appropriate information we need to ask the right questions. we have been pushing for some time now to have access to the documents that we believe would shed some light on exactly what happened. so, yes, there have been other committees that have questioned secretary clinton before.
but this committee with the information that we have, have not been in a position to fill in those gaps. i would say specifically to answer your question, let's talk about the many requests for diplomatic security that were ignored or turned down. those are the questions that this committee -- that's just one example of how we need to fill in these missing pieces. >> right. of course as you know, the former secretary addressed those threats, addressed them in a regional context, address them in a specific contest. you could say -- context, that she took responsibility, she didn't take blame. i understand how that could upset you politically but in terms of what information there is yet to be found, it raises questions. of what else is there? >> well, again, this isn't solely about mrs. clinton. this isn't solely about secretary clinton. she's just one piece of a much larger investigation. we've interviewed over 50 witnesses. by the time we're done with this
investigation, i believe it will be upwards of 70. many of whom have never been spoken to before by any committee that had jurisdiction prior to the select committee being formed. so, yes, hillary clinton was secretary of state at the time that this attack took place, of course this committee is going to need to ensure that we have a conversation with her. it's my hope that she'll be forthright with the committee and answer our questions. but, again, she's just one piece of a much larger investigation. >> understood. but she's been the target. you've had members of your party, members of this committee say that it is about her. they were going after her. you had kevin mccarthy bragging about bringing down her poll numbers. that sent many was echoed by other republican congressmen. it's not just me. you talk about the documents you have now. nobody questions the ability of you to interview more people. that's easy enough to do, especially with subpoena power. these chris stevens e-mails come
out. we had lynn westmoreland on the show. we had the e-mails, nobody else had the e-mails. that's not true. other committees had 25,000 pages of his e-mails. there have been multiple iterations of review. the state department reviewed it and came up with changes based on a lack of communication with people in the field. what more have you learned? can you point to one thing you've learned that hillary clinton didn't tell you or lied about or that you learned that we never knew before? >> well, let me first go back to your previous statement at the beginning of the question where you tacked about republicans stating that this was about politics. you haven't heard that from any member of this committee. the members of this committee and myself, this has never been political for us. this has always been about finding out the truth. we have remained committed to that and if you look at the actions of every member of this committee and the majority, that certainly has been the case. and those that have made the comments are not members of the committee, specifically, though,
to your question is what may we have learned? well, i would say to you and everybody watching, stay tune, please watch the interview tomorrow with secretary clinton because i believe that you will see that there are documents that we will be able to ask her questions about for the first time. that's very important to be able to fill in the gaps about the information that we currently do not have. >> what can you suggest that may come up tomorrow that will expose that the secretary has been untruthful with you or that the administration manufactured a cover-up? because those would be the only two real areas that would justify this extension of curiosity and expense of this committee, wouldn't it? >> i disagree with the premise of your question. you're suggesting that the only existence for this committee is to expose something that hillary clinton did wrong. that's -- >> or the administration. >> that's absolutely incorrect. >> or the administration. >> our job is to find out the whole truth about what happened about before, during and after.
secretary clinton voluntarily raised her hand to be secretary of state. of course we have to speak to her. >> you did. >> to get the whole picture. >> you did. >> this committee has not. the select committee has not. we look forward to tomorrow being able to ask the questions with the new documents that we've just received, again, the state department has stone walled and we knew this day would come. i'm sorry it took so long. i this i had this could have been over a long time ago if this administration had been a little bit more forthright with the committee. >> are you coming -- is part of this committee's work to look at the denials of funding that happen in congress after this event, the state department asked for increases in funding for operational security to shore up places like the benghazi mission an they were denied, certainly reduced. is that part of your investigation into what the mote vagus were for those moves? >> well, we've certainly asked those questions. there were many requests for security all over the world on the day of the attack and the days leading up. no one else was denied.
certainly this administration has taken the position that it was congress's failure to find. let me point out, there was a contingency fund where the secretary found $20 million to support the libyan government, yet blames congress for not being able to support her men and women that she had on the ground. yes, those are definite questions that we must ask and get answers to. how could you find money to support security forces for the libyan government yet point finger at congress to blame us for not giving the appropriate funds to support her people on the ground? that's a very important question and certainly one that will be asked tomorrow. >> the notion of what's beginning on with the committee does somewhat suggest what's going on with leadership within the gop. paul ryan could be an answer to consolidating power. there's a question as to whether or not the different factions will get behind them. the study group, they are
inwardly saying they support paul ryan. do you think he will get the gop to unify? >> actually i'm not a member of rsc. that being said -- >> i thought you were. i'm sorry, congresswoman. >> that's okay. i've always stated we need a bold leader that can unite republicans and can push forward a conservative agenda. do i think paul ryan can do that? absolutely. but i also respect the fact that he only wants to enter into this race if there's a unification of our conference. i get that. who walled want to be speaker without the unified conference? so we'll look forward to see how this progresses throughout the rest of the week. today and tomorrow my focus is on the hearing in front of us. >> and also congressman roby, let me extend the invitation. after you've heard the testimony, please come back on so we can discuss with the audience to what you think it i
illisidated. >> thank you so much. justin trudeau following through on a campaign promise. he's pulling canada's six fighter jets from the war zones in iraq and syria. the canadians will still provide humanitarian aid and training in the region. a new york city police officer was killed in the line of duty. overnight, officer randolph holder was shot in the head while chasing a robbery suspect in east harlem. the 33-year-old later died at the hospital. that suspect is in custody. also, late last night, a kentucky police officer was shot in the chest, prestonburg officer adam dixon is reportedly in stable condition. the suspect barricaded himself inside a home. a standoff is still under way this morning. another aspect of this story of violence. there's a grieving family demanding answers after florida police killed well-known local drummer corey jones. police say their officer approached jones who was armed in his car.
there's no dashcam or body camera footage to show exactly what happened. so questions are coming up. cnn's alina machado is joining us live in palm beach gardens, florida, with more. >> reporter: chris, the officer involved in this shooting is on paid administrative leave this morning while the sheriff's office investigates and the family tries to come to terms with what happened. >> he was broken down on the side of the road. >> reporter: corey jones' uncle struggles to tell the story of how his 31-year-old nephew ended up shot and killed by a police officer after his car broke down on a florida highway. >> i'd like to offer our condolences. >> reporter: on tuesday, the palm beach gardens police chief attempted to explain what happened, saying around 3:00 a.m. sunday morning, officer newman raja who was wearing plain clothes and driving an unmarked car stopped to investigate what he thought was an abandoned vehicle on an exit
ra ramp. >> as the officer exited his vehicle, he was suddenly confronted by an armed subject. as a result of the confrontation, the officer discharged his firearm, resulting in the death of mr. corey jones. >> reporter: police say they founded this handgun near jones's car. its serial number matching the gun they say jones bought just three days before the deadly encounter. a purchase his family was surprised to find out about. in fact, family and friends describe the popular drummer who played with a local band and at his church, as peaceful and laid back. >> in a state of disbelief, because of all people, corey, corey is not someone that woe would think would be shot by a police officer. >> reporter: now, supporters are calling for a peaceful rally thursday at the police department. >> he don't deserve this. he don't. we just need justice. >> reporter: now, officer raja spent about seven years at a
much smaller police department before joining the palm beach gardens police department earlier this year. the police chief here tells us that the officer has had no complaints against him. and there are also no disciplinary actions that have been filed against the officer. chris? >> all right, alena. thank you for the reporting. ahead on the show, we'll speak with the attorney representing corey jones family. donald trump and ben carson are leading the republican pac. we are talking to carson's business manager about carson's latest controversial statements and what he thinks of donald trump's.

bottom line, ask your doctor about linzess today. so the latest polls reveal some interesting shifts in the gop field. while trump maintains his lead in the latest cnn/orc poll, ben carson has surged eight points since last month. look at carly fiorina. she has dropped 11 points. here to discuss the state of the race is armstrong williams, ben carson's business manager and close friend. good morning, armstrong. >> good morning, alisyn. >> it's not just the cnn poll that shows these two way ahead of the pack. out this hour is a new abc news/"washington post" poll. trump's lead here is even bigger, he's at 32%. ben carson is exactly the same as he is in the cnn poll at 22%. they are, obviously, more than twice what their closest competitor is. armstrong, how do you explain
that these two men who are so stylistically different, you have dr. carson who is soft spoken and low key and disciplined and then you have donald trump who is bold and brash and unpredictable. how can the voters want both these men? >> well, good morning. listen, when mr. trump speaks about immigration, when he speaks about the walls, he speaks about the being a businessman an he knows how to create jobs and that he's fierce and he's tough, so many things that he says sometimes that makes us all want to push back and say did he really say that? but for some reason many americans see that as strength, they see that as courage, they see that as leadership. dr. carson, on the other hand, when he gets into the real policy issues, whether he's talking about the debt ceiling, whether he's talking about the grid and how we need to take care of our grid in these major cities and whether he's talking about isis or muslims as president or whether he's
talking about gun, while the media may see it as being controversy, it sees him getting into a deeper issue about his policies, what he really thinks and believes. and the fact that they're willing to say it. it seems like the more they say it, the more they build their base. s is they build their base, they consume all the air in the room. there's not a lot of attention to the other candidates. they're not making these bold statements, they're not taking bold positions. >> yes. >> they're not willing to be vulnerable in what they say. in playing it safe, they don't get the samen kood of attention that mr. trump or dr. carson gets from the national media. >> exactly. didn't that the suggest that combining forces they might be unstoppable? donald trump was on yesterday and i asked him about what he thought about a combined ben carson/donald trump ticket. actually i think trump/carson ticket. and let me play for you what he said about that. can you imagine a trump/carson ticket? >> well, i like him. he likes me. i mean, stranger things have
happened, that i can tell you. >> stranger things have happened. what does dr. carson think about a possible combined ticket? >> listen, dr. carson has said before and he'll say again, it's all about compatibility, whether you can govern together, whether you have the same judgment and temperament, whether you are at the same places on policies and how to move america forward. >> they do not -- hold on, armstrong. that's a lot there in that basket. they do not have the same temperament. they may have the same position but they don't have the same temperament. where does that leave them? >> the good news is that dr. carson and mr. trump continues to grow and mature in this role as front-runners in this presidential election. i know there are others that feel this won't last long and they're just waiting for dr. carson and mr. trump to disappear. many of us don't believe that will happen anytime soon. as mr. trump develops his message, temperament and
judgment and his discipline, maybe he develops in the kind of leadership, the kind of force that the american people want and then if you get that and if it comes to the point of you have to select a running mate, depending on who's leading at the time, they believe at some point dr. carson will overtake mr. trump. it will be interesting to see how he deals with that. it may be a carson/trump. you never know what the future holds, alisyn. it remains to be seen. >> we do know how the voters feel right now. we have a snapshot of that. another interesting fact in the abc news/"washington post" poll. it shows who has the best chance to win the gop nomination? here donald trump is far out ahead of everyone, including dr. carson, at 42%. another interesting poll, the best chance to win the general election, donald trump is even higher at 43% to ben carson's 16%. what do you think of that, armstrong? >> also we, also took a look at
the pole and on three-quarters of the people in the gop believe that dr. carson cannot only win the nomination but they will support him. his favorability ratings are much, much higher. they trust dr. carson. dr. karns has the judgment. a lot of people like dr. carson's discipline and soft spokenness. look, there's a lot of hope for the team carson in terms of his favorability. fact that he's raising more money than anyone else, i know mr. trump would like people to believe he's not raising money. but i think he realizes he cannot fund it by himself. dr. carson is very transparent on the fight. he signed up almost 700,000 donors. think about that, alisyn. when it's all said and done, dr. carson, because half the
country still doesn't know who he is. come january when the stakes are high and mean something, that dr. carson will surge ahead of mr. trump and he'll be in the best position to when the city states and the gop nomination. >> we shall see, armstrong williams, as you would say. >> we shall see. >> thank you very much. there's a family grieving in florida. they're demanding answers, their son, a church musician was 235i9ally shot by a plain clothesed officer. police say he was arm. we'll talk to the family attorney, next. what if one piece of kale
could protect you from diabetes? what if one sit-up could prevent heart disease? one. wishful thinking, right? but there is one step you can take to help prevent another serious disease. pneumococcal pneumonia. if you are 50 or older, one dose of the prevnar 13® vaccine can help protect you from pneumococcal pneumonia, an illness that can cause coughing, chest pain, difficulty breathing, and may even put you in the hospital. even if you have already been vaccinated with another pneumonia vaccine, prevnar 13® may help provide additional protection. prevnar 13® is used in adults 50 and older to help prevent infections from 13 strains of the bacteria that cause pneumococcal pneumonia. you should not receive prevnar 13® if you have had a severe allergic reaction to the vaccine or its ingredients. if you have a weakened immune system, you may have a lower response to the vaccine. common side effects were pain, redness or swelling at the injection site, limited arm movement, fatigue, headache, muscle or joint pain, less appetite, chills, or rash. get this one done. ask your doctor or pharmacist
unsurprisingly, a florida community is demanding answers after a popular drummer was shot dead by a plain clothed police officer in the middle of the night. corey jones was waiting for help after his car broke down off a highway early sunday morning, when an officer reportedly approached jones who was armed. we don't know what happened next but the interaction ended with jones dead. ben crump joins us now, council, good to see yo-- counsel, good
you, not for this reason. what do you think people need to know? >> corey jones was on side of the road, chris, at 3:00 a.m. in the morning waiting for a tow truck. what he needed from the police was a helping hands and all he got was bullets. from that moment to this one, his family is still demanding answers of why their god loving, god faring brother and son would be shot down by police. >> the police say that newman raja, the 38-year-old police officer was in plain clothes. that he pulled over on the side of the road to inspect what he thought was an abandoned vehicle. we don't know what happened. how do we know what the nature of this swaying was befoituatio turned deadly. >> we don't know what happened but we're not going to take the
word of the man who killed him as to what happened. we do know he was on the side of the road. he just got help from his banned mate pushing his vehicle to the median off of i-95. while he was there, parentally this plain clothed police officer in an unmarked van at 3:00 a.m. in the morning approaches him. he doesn't know if this is a police officer or not. his family believes he went to his grave not knowing who this person was. we don't know how many times he was shot. we don't know whether he was shot in the back. we don't know any of these questions. but what we do know is that this street was surrounded by businesses with surveillance video. there was a streetlight that had video cameras on it. and what we want is this all to come out. if the police have video cameras with information, don't hide it from the family. don't hide it from the
community. we want you to come forward with it. >> i'm sure everybody would want that. video provides clarity. a lot of this is the unknown. we have to wait and we have to know. you know that. there is one premise we should look at. we're not going to accept the word of the man who shot him. now, this is not some he said/he said on a street corner in the middle of the night. you're talking about a police officer with a clean record who was plain clothed and stopped that night. do you want to rethink how to characterize the nature of that testimony from that person? >> you know, i'm sure there was a clean police officer in jonathan wallace's case in charlotte, north carolina. there was a clean police record in walter scott's case in north charleston, south carolina. but when you look at this situation, all the policies and regulations that this police should have been trained seemed
to have been just forgotten about. >> how do you know? >> he didn't call it in. >> because this is the information -- the little information they did tell us, is that he did not call in on his regular channel, that he should have called for backup. he should have told somebody he was going to approach this vehicle. and if we're going to look at what happened, and we talk about giving benefit of the doubt, there is nothing, chris, and corey jones's character or history by all accounts that suggest he would ever shoot a cop. in fact, his family, his brother told me that he went to get the gun. he wanted to make sure it was done legally. he made sure he had a concealed weapons permit. he was with his legal rights as an american citizen to have a gun for protection. so for all we know, he was in the median of that road at 3:00 a.m. waiting for the tow truck
just like he had got off the phone with his brother a few minutes ago, just waiting. there is no reason he should be dead. and this is a situation that cries out for answers. it cries out for transparency. it cries out for the police to give this family information. give this community information. >> all of those things at this point, should be taken as true. the gun was purchased a few days earlier. we don't know why. you say for protection. woe done know if there was a specific threat feared. there's a lot of information that needs to come out. all i'm saying is, why tilt the scales about what to believ and not. >> chris cuomo, who's telling the -- no, no, chris, his family isn't tilting the scales. nobody's tilting the scales. we want ans. we don't want it to be swept under the rug. >> absolutely understood. >> nobody is tilting the scales. all we're asking for is information. don't try to put words in my
mouth that we're blaming the police. we want information. >> absolutely. >> we don't want to rely solely on the police officer who shot him in the middle of the night. >> absolutely. >> we want the information to come out. >> that's not how you originally put it. all of us want information. that's why we're having this conversation because we care about what happens. >> let me repeat how i answered your question. >> yes. >> you asked me, you said, there's not much known about this situation. i said there isn't much known about this situatin. but what we don't want to do is have to rely solely on the person who killed corey jones. his family knows corey jones. his community knows corey jones. they know his character. there is nothing in his history that would suggest in any way that he would kill a police officer. that was a god faring man, a god loving man who was inspirational to everyone he came in contact
with. that's why you see so many people in shock and utter disbelief that this could happen to this good young man, one of the best our community has to offer. >> that is what is mote viting our coverage. we want to find the answers as well. we appreciate your appearance. as we get more information, counsel, come back so we can continue to tell the story about what was right and what was wrong. >> yes, chris. body cameras would have helped. >> body cameras would have helped undoubtedly. if there is surveillance video, it is needed. we will press those questions as well. benjamin crum, thanks for being on the show. extend our condolences. >> yes. fathers and daughters separated for months, even years but one of the things that's amazing is there's a terrific institution, a correction institution is trying to keep the connection between the fathers and the daughters alive. lisa ling discovered the story. she's here to explain to us all about it. this is really moving. people don't have to think about

between building the bonds between inmates and their daughters. this week on "this is life" lisa ling heads to the prison where they host a special father/daughter dance inside that jail. >> the city of richmond is trying something extraordinary. a father/daughter dance in jail. how many of you are really nervous about the dance? >> can i put two hands up? >> what are you most nervous about? >> i can't dance. i never danced with my daughter before. it will be the first time she ever seen her dad in a suit. >> are you emotional about it? >> yes, you could say that, yeah. >> i was locked up when my child was born and i was barely there. she's 4 years old now. >> you really don't even know your daughter that well? >> no, ma'am. really, i don't know nothing about her, for real.
>> i believe that building a healthy relationship with my children is important, whereas before i really didn't think about it. this dance is an opportunity for me to get to know my daughter for who she is and the chance to build a relationship and a bond that we didn't have in the beginning. >> joining us now is the host herself, lisa ling. we should point out these are low-level offenders. >> most of them have substance abuse issues. >> most of them clearly are sober, they've rethought things, trying to re-establish these connections and they're getting the chance. you've been to a lot of -- i don't mean to make it sound like you've done time but you've been to a lot of facilities uncovering stories in your past. this felt different to you. >> i've covered so many stories in correctional facilities about gang violence, race wars,
unsanitary conditions. but this father/daughter dance, this program, i was instantly intrigued. we have over 2.5 million americans locked up behind bars and more than half of that number have kids. they're fathers and mothers. and so many of them didn't have fathers in their own lives. they don't have any idea how to be fathers. >> you add to the fact that we're talking about race in our country and a good number -- a good majority of those faces are african-american and hispanic. it's affecting those communities that are left behind without fathers. >> it's a vicious cycle. you're right. there are so many households that are missing men, particularly in african-american house holes. the likelihood of a child whose parent is incarcerated ending up incarcerated themselves is very high. i commend the city of richmond for making an effort to reconnect fathers with their children. >> not just the men that are getting something out of it, too. i can imagine for girls, varying ages, i saw little ones and teenagers.
the presence of a father in their life, you and i both know this. >> this is why i so responded to what they're doing. to me, the father/daughter relationship is one of the most important, underestimated relationships in society. >> agreed. >> a man's relationship with his daughter can shape the woman she becomes. so i loved that they're trying to connect these men with their daughters and the time they spent together at the dance was the most important time and longest time they've ever spent with their daughters sober. the idea is to incentivize them, to give them the desire to want to become productive fathers when you get out. >> it doesn't matter if you can't dance. there will not be a dry eye on "this is life" with lisa ling, airing tonight at 9:00 p.m. on cnn. congratulations on another great episode. >> that does look fascinating. can't wait to watch it. you no he what october 21st, 2015 is? it's back to the future day.

arrived. >> future has arrived. >> we're in the future. >> this is "new day" with chris cuomo, alisyn camerota and michaela pereira. >> that's you. >> that's you. >> thank you very much. welcome to your "new day." ignore the others. it is wednesday, october 21, 8:00 in the east. paul ryan is willing to serve but there is a big "but" here. he wants the gop leader sthoip look at the factions and say get them together on board with me and then i'll take it. and i have some things with my family also. >> no matter who becomes speaker, americans are making it clear, get your act together. there is a new cnn orc poll out this morning shows disapproval for republican leadership from bad to worse. it is now at 74%. can paul ryan pull things together to get it in the right direction? cnn manu raju is live from
capitol hill this morning. >> paul ryan is a candidate for speaker but it is unclear whether or not he will become speaker. it's whether or not the three factions with all get behind him. this morning the factions are meet to continue discussions and the focus will be largely be around the house freedom caucus. a the group of roughly 40 conservative whose or the pidtopidte torpedosed --. and the question is are they do the same to paul ryan. >> i have letti the decision in their hands. >> after days of h hand wringin house republicans essentially backing him into a corner. the 45-year-old vice presidential nominee is stepping up. saying he's willing to replace
house speaker john boehner. but not so fast. ryan says if and only if the three largest coalition in the gop house back his candidacy and agree to the following conditions by friday. ryan demanding that first the republican party goes from, quote an opposition party to being a proposition party. >> we think the nation is on the wrong path. we have a duty to show the right one. our next speaker has to be a visionary one. >> second he "updating house rules making it harder to ever throw a sitting speaker. >> the freedom caucus and the grassroots, they are concerned about paul ryan's pass. >> moe brox brooks says there is growing concern because of his amnesty in open boarders immigration position. >> i think paul would be a great speaker. i think he's got the skills. >> still time is running out as boehner makes it clear he wants out soon.
>> i expect to be out there have by the end of this month. >> ryan's last condition concerns his wife and three children. >> i cannot and i will not give up my family time. >> a family he does not want to let down. >> my greatest worry is the consequence of not stepping up. of someday having my own kids ask me, when the stakes were so high, why didn't you all you could do? >> now, ryan does have support with other two factions in the republican conference. that's a moderate tuesday group and also another conservative ca caucus, the republican study committee. but the house freedom caucus right now is backing another candidate for speaker. that is daniel webster of florida, who told me yesterday that he would still run for speaker no matter what paul ryan did. if ryan does not get into the race this could go on for weeks and weeks. and there are big fiscal issues looming. namely over raising the debt ceiling by early november guys. >> manu, thanks for that.
we appreciate it. hillary clinton is expected to face an eight hour grilling tomorrow for the house benghazi committee. new details about how she's preparing for her testimony. taking you live to washington and cnn's senior political correspondent brianna keeler. >> the there really is this sort of multifront attack against republicans on the house benghazi committee. the democrats who support hillary clinton are launching really the latest volley in all of this is this. the 140 page book called the complete guide to the benghazi select committee put out by david brock who is a chief defender of hillary clinton. and his super pac, correct the record, which is actually working in conjunction with the campaign. this is a group that we've learned is going to have a war room staffed with 30 people as clinton testifies tomorrow. which we expect is going to take several hours as it did back in 2013 when she testified. we do understand that republican
groups who are against hillary clinton run will be doing something kind of similar. but hillary clinton, she's been laying low for a few days. she's been preparing for her testimony before the committee. her campaign certainly, i think they feel like they are in a good place going into this. but they are also concerned that if she does have some stomaabe this could stymie some momentum she's had. the campaign actually has put out talking point, arming surrogates with information trying to get them all on the same page, urging them to call this a partisan charade. also telling them to say that hillary clinton is testifying to honor the memory of the four brave americans who died at benghazi. that is a quote. so this is how they are getting people ready to defend hillary clinton tomorrow. >> big questions on the political table brianna. thank you very much. let's bring in a man with answers and perspective and a fetching tie. republican senator john mccain. chairman of the senate. armed services committee.
you are looking fired up, senator. let's tick through the different issues before us on this tuesday. first, do we know with any certainty whether or not the party will get behind paul ryan? >> i don't know. chris. i'm not familiar enough with what's going on in the house. obviously all of us hope that -- i hope that they would get behind paul ryan. i think he's a great guy. he's a great image for the party nationally. and we'd like to see things get on track over there. but i don't know enough about what's going on to tell you the truth. >> senator mccain has positive words for paul ryan. has to help. can you say similar things about donald trump? having herd him a now talk about afghanistan and ore situations abroad. do you believe he is the right representative for your party, sir? >> well as you know senator lindsey graham is my candidate and will always be because we're very close friends. i do not understand some of mr.
trump's statements. for example, the way to settle the problem with iraq and syria is quote, take aware their oil. i'm not sure how that works. i think he owes the republican voters an explanation of how he would address this continuing crisis in the middle east which continues to spiral downward due to a lack of -- total lack of leadership and strategy by the president of the united states. an abject failure of the philosophy of leading from behind. >> has he said anything that impresses you? and if he were to become the nominee, would you support him? >> i will support the nominee of the party. i think that obviously his commitment to leadership, his commitment to doing -- you know, to quote make america great again, i'm not exactly sure again how you do that. but -- i know how to do it.
but look, he has attracted the attention and at least the support of around a quarter of republican voters so far. i respect that. again, i'm still always behind my friend lindsey graham who i think understands these challenges better than anybody. but i'll let the voters determine it. >> the benghazi testimony tomorrow for hillary clinton. do you believe it opens a new chapter of curiosity? or does it close the book on the situation? >> i -- i'm not sure. but i do know that i was in tripoli with chris stephens. he told me at that time of his concerns about security. it is very obvious that susan rice absolutely told -- gave false information to the american people saying that it was a spontaneous demonstration. secretary clinton told the families when the bodies came back that she would get the
people who made the, quote, hateful video. there are a lot of questions that are still unanswered. >> so you believe that. you believe that there are things to account for that have not been to this point that are material to making america safer. >> as with any event that takes place, whether it be 9/11 or whatever it is, where american lives are lost, we have to have a thorough and complete investigation. and if people misled the american people, as i believe they were. particularly about the nature of the attack. people don't bring rocket propelled grenades and the mortars to spontaneous demonstrations. then i think the american people deserve to know the answers. >> you don't think there's been enough time and spent so far? >> i don't think the answers have been provided. i understand that just last night a whole bunch more e-mails were released by the state department. i do not think we have all the information. i hope that this investigation
will be completed. but i certainly don't have all the answers. because there are many things that happened that have not been accounted for that brought about the tragic deaths of four brave americans. >> and so it continues. we'll all be watching tomorrow. another interesting issue in terms of our national security. the president threatening a veto over the national defense authorization act. what do you make of this situation. >> first i make the president is more worried about budget process and whether sequestration or these other ar cane need to be answered. orb does he care about the welfare, the benefit, the ability of the men and women serving in the military to defend the country or to receive the benefits and training they need. if he vetoes this bill, he will veto all of those things. this is an authorization bill. the fight with congress is about
money. there are appropriations bills. this is an authorization bill. and the president of the united states, if he does this, he will place his priorities about the budgetary process which most americans don't care much about over the lives and benefit and welfare of the men who are serving in uniform in the military. and i think that's disgraceful. >> senator, the white house says the sticking point is not the process but guantanamo and the ndaa as currently drafted would prevent the closure of the base. why can't you compromise on that issue? >> i'd be glad to compromise that issue. they promised me a plan as to how to do that. the president did, his secretary of defense and lisa monaco came to my office and said they would give me a plan and they haven't done it. and they haven't done it for six years. and the provisions in the bill are the same they have been for four years in the same defense -- in the defense
authorization bill. the same provision that he signed the bill before. that is a straw man. what they are trying to do chris is hold hostage the defense authorization bill to force the congress to raise non defense spending. that is what this is all about. the only problem with that, they are holding the lives and welfare and benefit of the men and women who are serving in the military as hostages in this process. and that -- >> understood but obviously i'm just asking the question to see if there is a compromise that can be made. i will go back to the white house with what you say is a straw man. you can bet on that. >> chris let me point out again, six and a half years ago, i said i want to close guantanamo. you got to give us a plan -- >> and they haven't you are saying. >> they have never given us a plan. the secretary of defense and as chief staff person lisa monaco sat on a couch in my office and said we'll get you a plan immediately. obviously they did tell me the truth. >> we'll go back to them.
i'll call your office with the answer and then we'll go on with the reporting from there. let me ask you something. do you think it is deceptive for members of the gop to say hey, this debt ceiling we can't just blindly go into it and authorize it because it is giving the government just a blank checkbook to spend whatever they want. isn't that misleading because the debt ceiling is about paying for what you already agreed to spend? shouldn't they really get of the initial spending? and not just the mechanism to pay for what they agreed to spend? >> i agree with that assessment. the debt ceiling lifting is a result of failure to reign in spending. you said it exactly right. >> all right. thank you senator. >> -- for a change. for a change sir. >> you see? now i was going to say it was great to see you. i wasn't going to say anything about your football team in the eyes of the new york jets but you couldn't let it go on the nice note. >> there you go. >> senator mccain. always a pleasure. always a pleasure. >> thank you. >> and i will come back to you
about what the white house response is. >> thank you. >> you see that? when you think it's all okay, alisyn, he comes in right at the end. >> it is just too tempting chris. >> you make it too tempting. >> all right. well the country awaits a decision whether joe biden will run, the vice president appears to be taking aim at hillary clinton and taking subtle jabs at her. life at the white house, what he's he saying. >> it is not appears. it is happening alisyn. vice president joe biden is sharpening up his not so veiled criticism of hillary clinton, sounding more like a candidate every day. last night he was at the tribute for walter mondale and for the third time in two days he returned to what was a criticism of clinton's comment that she considers republicans among her biggest enemies. without really directly attacking clinton, biden said a talk like that is naive and will not fix washington. here is what he had to say. >> the other team is not the
enemy. if you treat it as the enemy, there is no way we can ever, ever, ever resolve the problems. we have to -- >> now biden also tried to clear up his role in the mission to kill osama bin laden saying he supported the president's decision to go after the leader even though in the past he said he advised against that operation. the vice president also appears to be beefing up the potential ground game. with the firefighters union. and that group's president told me he has spoken to biden and that vice president in his words is thoughtfully weighing a bid for the white house. they are mobilizing to support biden. and he told us over the phone our union is preparing as if the vice president is going to announce his candidacy. of course there are lots of "if" and "seems" and well we don't
know yet. what's interesting, he has been offering up a rationale for his candidacy, something critics have been lacking. and that is something that the vice president is seeming to say he would represent that third term for president obama which is something hillary clinton would also like to say on the campaign trail even though she's been criticizing his policies lately. we want to tell you about the deadly gun violence erupting around the nation once again. two police officers and a four-year-old among the victims. >> reporter: it is terrible clog of incidents and this is the scene overnight. officer holder was responding to a reports of an armed robbery. they approached a group of men and the chase quickly followed. seconds later bullets rang out. holder was shot in the head and rushed to the hospital but doctors could not save him.
another gunshot victim, believed to be the suspect was found close by. he's expected to be charged later today. holder was a native of guyana and a five year veteran of the force. bill bratton, police commissioner of new york, spoke about the loss just last night. >> four police officers murdered in about 11 months. that is about as bad as it gets. we've lost six in the line of duty but four, four murdered in the line of duty. in kentucky a standoff unfolding everyone. police officer adam dixon was hit in the chest in gunfire exchange. he is in stable condition. the suspect holed up inside a home where he is arrested and taken to the hospital and also being treated for gunshot wubou.
a four-year-old gunned down in a road rage incident. one car pulled up next to another and opened fire. the little girl was hit and died at an area hospital. authorities asking anyone with information to come forward. it is not clear what led to the shooting in any sense. >> terrible situations across the board. breaking news into cnn. a u.s. military fighter jet has crashed into the farmland in the united kingdom. local police say the pilot was killed and believed to be the only person aboard. it was near a royal air force base in suffolk. they are investigating what exactly went wrong and we'll bring the details as soon as they become available is. take a look at the life or death leap. 400 miles south of alaska's cold bay. an unidentified mariner about to make a leap off his ship. what you cannot see is that he had tucked his cat inside his
coat first. and you can see him then standing up again as the crew member rushes over to help him. all of this was caught on a coast guard plane's camera. the sailor telling the crew he lost his rudder and rigging in rough waters. >> i watched this video close up. and just seeing how much the seas were rising and falling and rising and falling. >> you have to figure exactly when the right moment is to pounce. >> it is a risk. thanks goodness it paid off. >> i like that you discuss it as if you are preparing to to do it yourself. and pounce is a good cat reference. very strong. hillary clinton getting ready for her big day before the house committee. will select democrats on the panel really resign their seats? isn't that asking for more trouble? ahead.

they say hay may resign. joining us is the congressman schiff. are you really considring resigning from the committee. >> i think we're going to have to consider what the republicans intend to do with the committee going forward. as you may know they plan to call 12 wbs witnesses this year. the defense secretary, head of the cia. head of the join chiefs of staff. they canceled all the others. the only hearing they had interest in was the from secretary clinton. with know from senator mccarthy and hanna just why that is the case. so where are they going to go from here? once they figure out what they want to do with this committee, gonna have to ask a hard question, are we justified in continually to lend credibility to a committee that largely has none? and here is the dilemma. without us on the committee, without us in the room for example, it is very hard for us to point out the misleading attacks, the misleading character of the attacks they
have a been making. and i'll give you the most recent example. chairman gowdy as recently as lost week released a 13 page letter largely attacking secretary clinton accusing of her leaking -- actually not leaking but having ab e-mail containing a the classified cia source, putting american lives at risk the chairman said so brettlessly in that letter. and then what do we learn when we inquire of the cia? nothing in that e-mail was classified and nor was the name of this person. it was merely protected out of their privacy interests. >> but congressman, republicans have a different story about all of. this they say there is still so much to be learned. just last night speaker john boehner said that they have basically been stonewalled by hillary clinton, by the state department. he said that just yesterday for the first time did they receive ambassador's e-mails. listen to what john boehner said
last night. >> today the state department turned over 1300 pages of printed documents from ambassador stephens e-mails. >> today. >> today. today. they have been stone walling us now for three years on giving us the documents that we need in order to get the trouth out there. >> congressman, what is your response to that. >> like many of the comments in this investigation, i think very misleading. what the speaker did not tell you, what he did not say in those remarks is that we have already received a large number of ambassador stephens e-mails. indeed the committee received them years ago. or at least a year or two ago. and we received those e-mails from the committee on government reform. so much of the content that our chairman was describing from those e-mails over the weekend were e-mails we already had. >> how can you know that? if you are just now reading 1300 of ambassador stephens's e-mails how can you know what you don't know?
you don't know what content is in them if you are just reading them. >> this is precisely the point. you don't go out as the speaker did and the chairman did and say we have discovered new e-mails that shed new light when the fact of the matter is when you go through them and chair them to the ones you already had you may find the newly released e-mails don't tell any different story. in fact many may be duplicates of the ones you already have. that's the pattern here. there's a claim made by the speaker, by the chairman. and a few days later when the dust settles, after they have gotten a headline in the neural it is referred actually these e-mails referring to those they already had. so we're going to wait a few more days and figure is this new? is this something we don't already know? are these e-mails we largely already had. >> congressman, isn't the bottom line here, have you learned all
there is to know about benghazi? >> you know, look, we will never learn everything there is to know about any particular incident in our history. but i can tell you this, after 17 months. after 4.5 million dollars, we haven't learned anything new that contradicts the core conclusions of the eight other investigations that went on before. >> yeah. >> >> yes, you can always find new facts in the things you knew already. but in terms of whether anything alters your understanding of the events we have discovered new nothing to contribute. nothing new the tell the families or the american people. >> so if the conclusions have already been reached, who was to blame? >> in the first instance the terrorists who attacked us were to blame. >> beyond that? what else could you have done. >> beyond thattich as we knew a year and a half ago when the review board finished its work product the state department
made serious mistakes in terms of their securing of the benghazi. and there were those responsible for lapses in security. and those responses are e have already been made. and nothing we've seen in the last 18 months tells us the responsibility lies anywhere else. but nonetheless this investigation churns on because the goal is not really to learn something new about benghazi at this point. the goal has been really only to see if they can damage the candidate for president. >> with all the information that you have, should secretary clinton have done something different to protect ambassador stevens? whether the accountability review board found and i think is still the case of our investigation is there were people high up in the state department who is responsibility it was to respond to the ambassador's request for additional security. they didn't. >> including hillary clinton. >> that was a serious mistake. those requests didn't rise to the secretary's attention. and frankly, i think there is a
serious policy question about whether you want the secretary of state involved in the micro management of security at each and every diplomatic facility around the world. it is a big job of secretary of state that involves more the security of particular facilities. but the accountability review board did make recommendations about how that make sure those those requests reach the highest levels the nest levels and how there were better management in the future. and one of the things i think will be interesting to ask the secretary tomorrow is how are those being implemented? how should the department be restructured to ensure those suggestions are acted on. those are legitimate questions but by and large not the questions this committee has been asking. >> thank you for being on "new day." a big change in recommendations for ma'am grams. get them later. get them less often. what led to yet another change in these guidelines?

from 40 to 45. why the change? let's bring in dr. kevin epiinger. a physician and chair of the panel for the american cancer society that made these new recommendations. thanks for being here. why did you change the guidelines? >> thank you alisyn. first it is very important to understand that the evidence is very clear that at age 45 the benefit outweighs the harms. but women between ages of 40 and 44 still enjoy benefit from that. there is still mortality reduction. just the evidence is less clear. >> if there is more talent tali reduction if they still get a benefit why change the guidelines? if you can a save a life why not have them start at 40? >> wonderful question. the vast majority of their lifetime will not have breast cancer. especially younger women. doing so you will have a lot more screening exams and false positives and other related to that. very important as you look at the evidence. very clear black and white as the age of 45 as starting.
but very importantly the american cancer society strongly supported women 40-44 having the opportunity to have a mammogram and we think that is best having a discussion with the healthcare provider. going over the limitations and potential downsides and importantly understanding the values and preferences so they can make a decision. >> so since this is just suggest at that age, will insurance cover it? >> we strongly lobby for that. that is an important part of american cancer society is pushing for and saying that all women age 40 and older that want a mammogram ordered by the physician should be able to have that done. >> here is what's so confusing. there are varying guidelines. the american college of ob/gyn, get at 40. you guy, american cancer society, 45. the u.s. preventative services task force says you can start at age 50.
what are women to think? >> we'd like them to follow our guideline. if you look at the way guidelines are developed. new guideline won't be out until next year. the last was in 2009 but the institute of medicine released kind of a template, a road map for how to develop trurs worthy guidelines and we followed that template. the as best practices model for looking at evidence, older and new evidence and understanding both the benefits and the harms in breast cancer screening. >> here is the most stunning bit of information i read in preparing and i do need you to address this. last year results from a 25 year follow-up of two landmark studies on breast cans tracking 90,000 women concluded mammography did not reduce breast cancer deaths at all. why are we getting mammograms. >> one of the things we found in looking at the evidence is there is no question in the mind when you look at the hundreds of studies and understand their methodological cause that ma'aming afy remains the single
best tool for preventing premature death. >> so you refute -- >> most definitely. >> the these landmark studies of 90,000 that show death was not prevented you disagree? >> most definitely. because when you look at the sum of the evidence. all studies together there is no question that mammography still saves lives. it is the best tool we have. >> what these tests exam found that self exam, physical exam does the same -- does the very same thing as mammography. do you think mammography goes yond beyond a self exam? >> most definitely. and that is what the evidence shows. >> very quickly. you also have new guidelines about exam. and i want to put these up. the old guideline was regular breast exams by a doctor. the newest no breast exam by a doctor. why not have a breast exam by doctor. >> great question. we're certainly pushing a little against tradition but simply put we found no evidence with
well-designed studies that doing a exam by a the healthcare provider in an a woman who is asymptomatic at average risk for breast cancer changes outcomes. and yet it does increase false positive. so if we have something that doesn't improve it, regardless of how long we've been practicing it. don't we need to think could we use that time better for counseling about the benefits and other options of breast cancer screening? >> thanks for coming on to explain this. as always women should check with their own personal doctor. >> most definitely. >> michaela. >> on this day marty mcfly and doc brown traveled to the future. in honor of "back to the future" day we're going to bring in two of the people behind the movie imaginics next. for the same price.igs so five more gigs for the same price? yea, allow me to demonstrate. you like that pretzel? yea.

hi doc, what's going on, huh? where are we? bhr we? >> descending towards hill valley california on wednesday october 21, 2015. >> 2015? you mean we're in the future. >> the future has arrived. wednesday october 21, 2015. also known as "back to the future" day. apparently even the white house determined it. the date when marty and doc travel to the future in "back to the future" 2 to celebrate, the 30th anniversary trilogy is being released on blu-ray and dvd. the screen writer and co-producer of the "back to the future" movies.
and allen siylvesterry the films composer here. i have to tell you. i'm looking at you two. you picked 0 yea30 years in fac future. it was such an interesting idea. not 500 years. not even a hundred years. have you spent the last 30 years thinking in fact that this day was going to arrive? >> well sure. how would we not. >> how did youds choose 30 years. >> the movies are interesting and people still like them because it is a movie about families and generations. so 30 years is one generation. so the first movie goes from 1985 back to 1955. and it made sense we were going to go forward for the symmetry 30 years. >> i love that. i'm hearing the music. so pivotal. so important. such a big score. did you know at the time it was
instantly take us back in time? >> absolutely not. and when you say big score, it is imagewise disease not a big fi -- it is not a big film. but the story was so big that the sense was we could do this kind of epic setting of a score. even though as i've been saying, we could expect to see beaver cleaver walk in front of the house at any point with the picket fence. so it was an interesting -- interesting combination of elements and here we are. >> here we are 30 years later. at the time of the first film in particular, you already figured it out by the second one that there was a ground swell and people were loving the film and loving michael j. fox and the concept. but that first one, did you really think you would hit on something with the first film? >> my co-writer and the director, we came up with this
idea in 1980. we pitched it. got a deal to write a script at columbia pictures. they said well no, it's time travel. it's too nice. it's too sweet. we don't want to make it. and the project was rejected over 40 times throughout hollywood. >> and that is a good message to screen writers that are struggling out there. >> it is. you have to stay with us. >> keep at it. it is interesting because you talk about the time travel aspect. it can be kind of dicey. carl sagan said you guys nailed it. that's good to be feeling good. >> absolutely. we're huge fans. and it's entertaining. >> it is. >> you know, don't use this as your science essay, you know, to get into m.i.t. >> although gentlemen, let's be real. let's put up this post of the things the trilogy got right. things like head sets. bio metrics. flat screen tvs.
drones. that seemed like a notion. >> drones was a great surprise. >> that is a pretty incredible thing. >> yeah. >> all sorts of hover board -- okay we're still working on the hover board. but can i bring us to the cubs. you have to stop and recognize that game four is today. they are down 3-0. >> and they could end up being the cubs again. >> the irony is i'm cardinals fan. so we needed a joke in the movie, something that would inspire marty to do sports betting. because that what the plot of part two is all about. so the idea was let's come up with the most absurd sports prediction that anybody could imagine. and what would that be? >> poor cubby fans. >> can i do a little tribute. because we have some super fans on our staff. do you mind indulging our super fans? >> go for it. >> i was it's mandatory to ask
of you. first, how did you come up with the flux capacitor. >> i don't know. it was just some stupid gobblety gook. i don't know how many i drink tonight. did you write the line great scott. >> no bob wrote is that. >> awesome. was it more nerve wracking to predict the future or accurately age your star? and we'll show you marty now versus the idea of what you thought he would look like now. >> for the actors it was much more grueling to sit in the make up chair now and get that. and you look at how we aged them. we aged them more. we overdid it because we wanted to make a big contrast. >> of course you want that effect. >> right. >> well gentlemen all three of us have been reveling in old memories from the day. thank you so much for this great film and the series, the trilogy. and thanks for helping us remember "back to the future" dade. again the white house determined today is officially "back to the
future" day. >> thank you. >> what a pleasure. >> give us an idea what your favorite "back to the future" memory is. tweet us and post a comment on facebook. i know you have some memories, chris. you have been quoting the movie pretty much all morning. >> one of the things i loved is when they went back to the sports almanacs and it allowed them to make bettes and win all the -- that would be a nice, nice day for me. great to have him here to. well done. we got good stuff. listen to this one. a groom gets cold feet, cancels a wedding just days to spare. how is that the good stuff? people don't have to think about

>> look at that. >> the meal was originally for 120 family and friends. lifted the spirits of stranges fallen on hard times. also for the non refundable honeymoon, the mom and bride went together. >> lemon out of lemons. >> time now for newsroom with carol costello. >> good morning. newsroom starts now. happening now in the newsroom. >> if i can truly be a unifying figure, then i will gladly serve. >> ryan's ready to run for house speaker. but only on his terms. i cannot and i will not give up my family time. >> will the gop agree to his list of conditions? also, serious president pays putin a surprise visit. assad's message, thanks for the air strikes. what's next? >> we just need
