tv   CNN Newsroom With Carol Costello  CNN  November 6, 2015 6:00am-8:01am PST

6:00 am
this is cnn breaking news. >> good morning i'm poppy harlow in for carol costello. we begin with breaking news on the u.s. economy. this country adding more than
6:01 am
270,000 jobs in october. that is driving down unemployment to 5%. that is incredibly significant. 5%. look where we have come from. what does this mean on the fed's decision for interest rates. we haven't seen that since what? 2008. >> pre crisis levels. 5 spr 5% is a significant milestone. and just the magnitude. 270,000 in the month. is the best job creation all year wrong. a big surprise and hiring across the board. when you look at job gain, 271,000, the best we've seen since late last year. now on average we're about 206,000 a month. that means last year and this year a very strong years more job creation. this is the unemployment rate since 2007. you can see it reached 10% in
6:02 am
the depths of the recession and has been slowly recovering here. now 5%. let's look at the sectors quickly. you have a lot of hiring in healthcare. you know those can be jobs that span the income bracket. but business and professional services, very good job creation. accountant, insurance agent, lawyers. technically office jobs in many cases and tend to pay a little more. >> what's interesting is you do have a lot of politicians who will point out look these numbers are deceiving because the unemployment rate doesn't count people who have given up and dropped out. but there is another critical number in here. underemployment. >> even the bad indicators have been getting better. you have been hearing a lot from republicans about this on the campaign trail. the real unemployment rate is now 9.8%. that number right there as, you know, are people who are out of work and people who are working part-time but would rather be full-time.
6:03 am
and there is another group of people leaving the workforce. that was steady this month. there are people leaving because they are retiring and there are young people leaving and we're not quite sure what all of the factors are around that. that number has been static. all of these other numbers are showing strong hiring in the month. it shows i think too of the global winds that are biting in august and september. in october companies had to add workers and so they did. >> we'll see what the fed does. >> i think it gives the fed a little more. more people are thinking the fed will race interest rates in december and that is something that effect every person watch skblg thank you very much. much more on cnn money com. next. politics, quote a bunch of lies. republican hopeful ben carson fires back after questions surfaced about his violent past. a cnn team went to his hometown in detroit this week and spoke to a lot of people who knew carson growing up.
6:04 am
some of his closest friends. and said they were really surprised by carson's claims. like the one where he said he once tried to attack someone with a knife. and also today carson doubled down in a fascinating interview with very own alisyncamerota. >> it is a bunch of lies. that is what it is. attempting to say i'm lying about my history. i think it's pathetic. and basically what the media does is distract you with all this stuff so you don't talk about what's important. and we have so many important things. and i'm not proud of the fact that i had these rage soepds but i am proud of the fact i was able to get over them. and my message has been you can escape from that. >> yes. >> and some of the members were my family. i understand that. i will not let them be vmdsed
6:05 am
again my the media. and if you choose too believe that i'm incapable of these acts i guess that is a complement. >> first you say bob was your close friend, whom you almost killed. and then yesterday you said well actually his name wasn't bob. i changed the names and that's fine. people do that all the time dr. carson in their memoirs. >> i changed names throughout all the books even of patients because -- and unless i have specific permission from them to use their names that is an inappropriate thing to do. >> of course. and people change the names in their memoirs all the time. but they note that at the beginning if they say the fictitious names are going to be used. but nevertheless then you change it to say that he was not actually a close friend. he was a family member. >> he was a family member. and i really don't want to expose him further. i've talked to him. he would prefer to stay out of media and i want to respect that. >> i know you call it tactic.
6:06 am
it is called vetting in politics. >> is that what was done with the current president. >> yes. as a matter of fact -- >> no you did not. >> president's autobiography dreams of my father was also vetted you will recall. >> give me a break. >> don't you remember there was a whole question -- >> no. >> -- about his girlfriend. and that people went back to try to find the president's gief and it turned out she may have been a composite character and that was revealing -- >> you all did with president obama doesn't even come close. doesn't even come close to what you guys are trying to do in my case. and you are going to just keep going back trying to find -- he said this twelve years ago. he said -- you know, it is just garbage. >> you can see much more of that interview on cnn.com. meanwhile on the new cnn orc poll shows the state of iowa people there are embracing the
6:07 am
political outsiders. trump and carson now battling out for the top spot and senators marco rubio and ted cruz trailing. maeve reston, you broke the story. i want your reaction off the top from what you just heard from ben carson, what he said to alisyn this morning. >> well there were very many mischaracterizations of our story this morning from dr. carson. just to take our readers, you know, back to the beginning of how this started, dr. carson has talked repeatedly about these incidents on the campaign trail. we are not talking about minor incidents here. we're talking about attempted stabbing, hitting a kid over the head with a rock. bricks and bats. so my colleague scott glover and i set out to find people of detroit, friends of carsons and
6:08 am
eye witnesses, who could talk about his assertion that he had divine intervention from god at age 14 and there was another violent out burst again. that was something we wanted to look into. it is called vetting. it is what you do when you look at any presidential candidate and we did it with president obama as well. so that is not a true claim that no one looked into president obama's background or hillary clinton's background. i think what also is important to remember here is that we went out to find these people. we were not able to find them. he has said in various points over the last couple of days that we only talk to people who knew him when he was 14. we talked to people who knew him when he was in elementary school. junior high school. neighbors. classmates. we verified these people went to school with him. talked to others who didn't knows him as well. left them off the list. taukd to the ten people who say they knew him well and observed
6:09 am
him over this period of time. so he's raised a lot of questions and i'm glad he's coming forward giving us new pieces of information. because hi campaign did not agree to cooperate with us. when we went to them and asked for the identities of these people some time ago they did not give us names and all of a sudden these names are fictitious he says. >> right. i know that you emailed them twice before and also once you had your findings and the campaign said they weren't going to comment. >> correct. >> let's talk about this. the issue of dr. carson in the interview saying, you know, you don't vet president obama like this. and in fact the media did in dreams of my father when he wrote it. and he's come under scrutiny because of part of how he documented his past, i'm talking about president obama, specifically a past girlfriend here in new york city who he wrote about in his book "dreams for my father." in an interview with vantty
6:10 am
fair. he said that was not her. that was an example of compression. i was very sensitive in my book not to write about my girlfriends partly out of respect. i thought the reaction was a useful theme to make about sort of the interactions that i had in the relationships with white girlfriends. he went on to say it was something editorially difficult to grapple with. this is how i did it, through a compression. not the actual person. clearly that was vetted as well. >> it was. and, you know, it raises questions about, you know, why president obama -- or he was not yet president at that point but didn't make it clear at the beginning that these were composites of characters. again with dr. carson, i have not seen any notation in his book that these were names that were not used. there are other foonts he pointed out this morning that to conceal the identity of one patient that was talked about in
6:11 am
the book. there was a footnote saying that that person's blood type has been changed. there are no stars next to the names of bob and jerry in these accounts he's told us. and i also want to come back to the fact that we are still reaching out looking to talk to people in detroit and the people that we talk to as we said clearly in our story at cnn.com said that they had no knowledge of these incident, they were out of character. but many of them still believe him even though they are skeptical. so we're just looking for more details and we hope dr. carson will come forward with those details. >> for any who haven't read it go to cnn.com and read maeve's reporting. i want to bring in erin lewis. your reaction? >> well t stuff about not vetting obama hit a note with me. because i remember during the jeremiah wright controversy in
6:12 am
2008 humping out to chicago and talking with the worshippers and what were the sermons like and sitting through a whole sermon and on and on and on. this is what we do. my initial reaction would be to say dr. carson welcome to the race to become the most powerful man in the world. questions are going to be asked. >> it is interesting and the polling thoughs this. er that plays well with the public. >> yes it does. as you know poppy, it is impossible to convey that those of us who have been doing this for a while now, i've been doing this 30 years off and on. we really at some level don't quote unquote care who wins. we're trying to bring in as much
6:13 am
timely information as possible so the voters can make the choice. the notion that everyone has the thumb on the scale in one direction or another is simply not true. it is hard to keep straight what people have said and when candidates don't make it easier for you it doesn't help anything. >> so let's look at these new poll numbers. new poll focusing on iowa. carson there making major gains from 14 to 23%. why do you think he continues to resonate there? he's pushing up against trump by less than the margin of error? >> that's right. they like carson in iowa. i've been to iowa enough to know that they would like him. he is the kind of candidate that does very well out o there. an e advantage i wouldn't be at all surprised if ben carson does very very
6:14 am
well or even wins iowa. he is there kind of guy. he speaks the faith language a lot of core republican voters speak. he carries himself with a certain modesty. this morning being maybe a bit of an exception that i think voters respond to. and he's got a message that they like. >> it's interesting. he talks frequently in his book about the hand of god coming into his life at certain moments. one saving his wife in a car crash. another one when he was unprepared for a big exam on his path to becoming a doctor. so certainly that is resonating with the huge voter block especially in iowa. thaw errol. have a nice weekend my friend. still to come anger and frustration reign as thousands of passengers remain stranded in egypt. attention americans eligible for medicare.

this morning the first emergency flights are due to
6:19 am
wisic stranded passengers and tourists out of egypt and back to the u.k. thousands learning may they not afrl after all be able to leave today. growing suspicions potentially a airport worker may have taken part in tha bomb and is that worker still at the airport? >> i just want to talk about what russian president vladimir putin has just said about these flights. >> reporter: adding further credence to the security concerns here in sharm el sheikh putin has stated not only russian flights to sharm el sheikh should be suspended but the russian nationals here should be extracted. this is a pretty drastic about turn. because russia was joining egypt in maintaining some of the comment, some of the implications we were hearing from the u.s. and u.k. about
6:20 am
what could possibly have brought down that russian plane were premature and they needed to wait. now he is to some extent joining them and saying until the investigation issues its findings, flights to and from russia and sharm el sheikh should be suspended. this has come off the back of a very strong story coming out of british investigators for the bbc that they believe that this could have been caused by a bomb in the hold luggage. which of course brings about all sorts of cop serns about the security of the broader parameter. is it corruption? an inside job? a broader ring? and amidst that speculation and growing fear, thousands are stranded here with at the moment no absolute guarantee they are going to be going home poppy. >> and you also have overnight, klm, a major carrier coming out and saying no checked luggage
6:21 am
from cairo egypt to amsterdam. so you have this cycle of fear precipitating. all those lines of people we saw in the airport, many of them thought they could go home today. how drastically does this change all the contradictory information they are get on when they can leave? >> this will absolutely solidify the broader concern. and when not just british nationals being extracted but potentially russian as well. out of a relatively small airport. this is a holiday and a major hub. this is potential for a lot of chaos and feeds back into the fear. it is also about the fears that are playing out for so many passengers about what happened and what caused this and what that means for their safety as long as they are stuck here. >> absolutely. reporting live from sharm el sheikh today. and if indeed this is an attack
6:22 am
carried out by isis it is no question a game-changer. it would be the group's first successful attack on an airliner. but in some ways this would be isis still holding on to its proven strategy, praying on unstable countries. our guest wrote a fascinating op ed. "the key to ice succesis succes the military numbers and strength. the numbers may only be about 20 to 30,000 fighters but the weakness in the regimes where the group is doing well. y ." you see this coming down to basically a power vacuum that has allowed isis to thrive. >> yeah. everybody was very excited about the arab spring but it's turned into the arab winter and created a vacuum of governance in a loft count lot of countries. and to some extent egypt where
6:23 am
isis has quite a strong affiliate. and not so much that isis is very strong. but it is a pathogen which preys on weak hosts like these countries with pretty ineffective governments. and if indeed this was a bomb that got on the plane in sharm el sheikh, it sort of speaks to the way -- you know, egypt doesn't have a particularly strong national security system in the same way a lot of western countries do. and i talked to a british official who said their own experts observed what was going on at sharm el sheikh in terms of security. they said it was poorly supervised and inconsistent and that explains some of the actions. >> what about the intelligence, peter that stands out most to you that would make u.s. intelligence, u.k. intelligence point to a very likely possibility that this was carried out by isis? because we know the group has claimed responsibility for things in the past, attacks that frankly they have not carried
6:24 am
out. what is it about this intelligence? >> i haven't seen the intelligence. i can't make an assessment. we have had an series of different kinds of reports as neema mentioned thinking the bomb was in the hold and, you know, the british intelligence service is a very series service. mi-6 and the fact that brochure prime minister cameron is leaning this way and said yesterday at least the possibility this was a bomb. so take all of this together a lot of potential people have arrived at this conclusion. >> let's talk about isis operating in this area. this is an off set of al qaeda. and they pledged allegiance to isis just last year. what else do we know about the power and the presence of the group in that region. >> it is generally viewed as one of the strongest after isis's
6:25 am
regional affiliates. and it is not just an affiliate but declared itself to be part and parcel of isis and it is leading in insurgency in sinai where hundreds are being killed whether on the military side or military themselves or civilians. it is not just a terrorist campaign. highly effective attacks on soldiers and government official. it is a serious problem, just as the isis affiliate in libya is a serious problem. and isis in iraq and syria are serious. >> you bring up libya and the bigger concern about all of these failed states, if you will. you write that overthrowing gaddafi may have been the single biggest blunder of the obama administration. what lessons can whatever administration takes over going forward, what can they take from that? >> hobbs put it a long time ago, the one thing worse than a dictator is annarchy.
6:26 am
and if you overthrow a dictator no matter how heinous and there is civil war and anarchy this is really a problem. and unfortunately the obama administration didn't learn in 20u --. and the same thing is happening in libya today. i was in favor of overthrowing gaddafi as many around the world were. but the question is what happens on day two? and now we have a pretty extended answer to that. >> as so many governments grapple with what too do in assad and syria. still to come we are learning more about a stratetra story, the face of a nine-year-old boy murdered in a chicago poli chicago alley. police calling it a new low. ♪ hold on for one more day really? hey, i know there's pain.

story, the face of a
6:30 am
6:31 am
9:30 a.m. eastern. i'm poppy harlow. thank you for being me. take a look at wall street. we just gotta all important jobs report. on the heels of the report, 271,000 jobs added in october. and unemployment falling to 5% since the depths of the financial crisis. romans with m. >> and wages up. more than a decade now of stagnant wages. so you are finally seaing wage growth here. strong gains across the categories for job creation. when you look at the markets here there is a couple of things happening. a lot of folks think now the federal reserve can raise
6:32 am
interest rates at the end of the year. so that could hurt the stock market. but it also means that they are not so concerned about global growth concerns hitting u.s. companies. so that is a good thing. so you are seeing this tug of war here between how to make sense of this. the bond market, interest rates are rising so if you have a mortgage or if you are trying to lock in a mortgage rate, i think you will see rates rise here so that is one practical application. and also euros for dollars. >> and looking at this overall it all becomes political very quickly. it was already political and when you have politician whose say this administration hasn't done enough for jobs on americans they often point to the unemployment number. those who aren't counted in the unemployment rate. >> that is now below 10% and that is a number who of who are out of work officially or are working part time but want to be
6:33 am
working full time. there is another number that counts people just out of the labor market and that number is still just stubbornly high quite frankly. the people out of labor market altogether. but the other numbers. all of these bad numbers have been getting better. and when you look at its whole, 5% unemployment, that is pretty low, folks. it is the lowest since 2007. the lowest since the worst of the financial crisis and even before. >> we'll take it and hope it gets better for those people still not counted in that. also to politics we go cowardly, unfathomable, a new low in chicago violence. these are words being used to describe the shooting death of this beautiful little nine-year-old boy, tyshawn lee
6:34 am
who police say are pretty certain was lured into an alley and killed. >> we believe this is related to -- we know the two groups. we know the individuals involved in both groups. and proving who did what is where we are right now. and that is where we need some assistance. >> following the stories for i. this is hard for anyone to stomach. and when you look at the numbers we just time and time again that murder rates are up across the country and chicago just keeps bearing the brunt of it. >> and off that, three and a half decades of police work for the police superintendent and he says by far this murt of tyshawn lee is perhaps the most despicable murder he's ever had to investigate. and this morning they are waking up to news in the community that nine-year-old tyshawn was actually targeted and lured out to that area and shot to death. and police don't have a whole
6:35 am
lot to go on with respect to a possible suspect so they know if they are going to be able to find the person or people responsible, they will need the community's help. so now we are hearing from the members of the community trying to rally some support. trying to find some information. take a listen. >> we have gone to a new low that's removed what used to be some codes. some barriers. some lines that used to be drawn in the community, some things in the city that was not acceptable. it's given an okay to cowards. now we're going target family members. we're going target mothers? we're going to target grandmothers? we're going to target babies? we must now put the code back. we've got to draw the line back. we've got to put the barriers back saying this here is not going to be tolerated. >> clearly a community there deeply frustrated. so now you are beginning to see members of the clergy coming
6:36 am
forward trying to encourage people to really speak out. adding to that public plea, police are also offering a reward for any information. from the investigation itself we understand tyshawn was actually targeted because his father is suspected of being a reported gang member. this is a claim he's denying at this point. and some of these numbers. when you see gang members going to war on streets you expect injuries and casualties. not a nine-year-old little boy who was by all accounts caught in the cross-fire. >> and for all of you watching next hour i'll be speaking with the father. he'll be in our 10:00 hour. stay with me. the protests growing and now a bounty placed on donald trump's

candidates on both sides of the 2016 race for the white house are making the rounds on late night comedy shows. hill deliberate sary clinton si last night with kimmel. she joked about what might change in the white house if she is elected. >> will you have the head spot of the dinner table now that you will be president? will the remote if for television be on your side of the bed? >> thank you. well there are some things that are unchangeable. like moving the remote. >> that's his.
6:42 am
>> yeah that is too big an issue for me to take on. i have to do world peace and get the economy going and take care of people. if i were going to run against him, would i win? yeah. >> well then there is donald trump whose preparing for his stint as host of saturday night live. controversy is brewing as his gig approaches. joining me to talk about it the politics, the comedy. it is friday. we can have a little fun. thank you gentlemen for being here. dean you have an interesting take. you were a writer for a long time on snl. on the team for many years. and you have said that donald trump's hosting on saturday night may be one of the most challenging things not only for him but for the show. >> i think it is. because trump hosted in 2004 and i was there. the goal of the writers and the producers is to make the
6:43 am
funniest show possible. and usually the host is in on it. now donald trump is the number one or number two candidate in the run for president. his goal is not to hurt his campaign to. help it great. but not hurt it. and trump has to calculate hey that might not help me. >> but he love it when you make fun of yoursel. >> will he do that. >> and he's been accuse of being so thin skinned. obama took a jab at him in the white house correspondence center a few ago and the camera pans to him and he's like not smiling. >> yes. >> so what can he do to benefit himself on saturday? >> he has to play along. that is all. because he has a reputation of being thin skinned it is going to help him if he actually plays along and says hey i'm in on the joke. i think donald trump is in on the joke. i think we are not in on the joke. i think he's playing a joke on all of us that we are not in on. >> he's been asked that a number of time and flatly denied that.
6:44 am
on a more serious note and then we'll get to some of this other great sound that we have. protests. you have not only got protests of people saying someone that said this about my origin or hispanics in general should not be on the show, should not be hosting this show. you have got a petition going out this week with 500,000 signatures calling on nbc to drop him. this is very painful for a lot of folks. >> i wrote criticizing trump for his antilatino comments and i'm muslim, for his antimuslim chents. they're not validating his views by putting him on. and the idea that you can veto a political candidate because people object means we'll never have candidates on saturday night. and that would be bad. so change the channel if you don't like it. >> you have said having carson host would be a very mad move.
6:45 am
let's listen to what he said yesterday when he was asked if he would two on "saturday night live." >> having being a guest host on "saturday night live"? does that interest you? >> no. i think the president of the united states is very serious issue. and i don't even want to begin to put it in the light of comedy. >> do you think he could stay a -- >> did i take a xanax or was ben carson talking -- >> -- world crisis right now. >> -- can of paint would do a better job hosting "saturday night live" than ben carson. if you want to give america a sleeping pill make carson the host of "saturday night live." donald trump is great television. that is all there is tight. i don't care who is watching who says they are not going to watch. the fact is if you really don't
6:46 am
want him to do well, don't protest. we all know protesting brings numbers down way low, right? the fact is he's going to be very highly rated and he's going to do a good job. get over it. that is what he does. he's a reality television star. what makes you think he's not going to do a good job on snl. >> to the weekend on that note. dean, thank you very much. >> pleasure. >> great to have you on. quick break. be right back. what do doctors from

a new twist in the investigation in to the death of lieutenant joe glinowitz authorities are now revealing the officer who killed himself in a, quote, carefully staged suicide may have actually tried to hire a hit man to kill a village official who was auditing the mentoring program where he had allegedly been embezzling tens of thousands of dollars per year. the story gets more and more bizarre. rosa flores following it all for us. good morning, rosa. >> reporter: good morning, poppy. authorities here sharing with us some of those disturbing details
6:52 am
about that alleged hit on a village administrator. let me take you through this. let me start with the text message that gave authorities the glue. take a look at your screen. it reads, and i'm going to quote here, close to entertaining a meeting with the mutual acquaintance of ours with the word "white" in their nickname. now, according to investigators white is code. a code name for a high-ranking gang member. now, through some police work authorities tell us that they identified the person exchanging that text message. they talked to the person. they interviewed her. and according to authorities, they say that she said that lieutenant gleno witz had a conversation with her about the hit on the village administrator. they also found this high-ranking gang member, authorities did. they had a conversation with him as well, and authorities tell us that he denied everything. but imagine being that village

7:00 am
good morning, everyone. i'm poppy harlow in today for my friend carol costello. it is 10:00 a.m. eastern, thank you for being with me this morning. a striking about-face from russia's president. last hour vladimir putin said his country should hold all flights to egypt until we know what caused last weekend's crash of the russian airliner. until now russia and egypt batted away u.s. intelligence that suggested a bomb may have brought the plane down. we're live in sharm el sheikh with the latest. why is vladimir putin coming out now and saying this? >> reporter: well, this is on the advice of the russian national anti-terrorist committee who say that russia should wait until the findings of the investigation is the causes of the crash have been released. you can see behind me, poppy, president putin's words have had a pretty immediate affect. those are russian tourists
7:01 am
standing outside the departure terminal here. president putin said not only should flights be suspended but russian tourists should be given every help they need to be extracted out of sharm el sheikh. this comes as the uk ministry of defense announced they have a small team, they're calling it, of military personnel here at sharm el sheikh airport. they have now arrived and are helping with the security arrangement and the broader needs of this investigation. a really confusing and difficult time for these stranded tourists. there really is as yet no sense how, what, and why. all they're getting is this picture that is coming together of really a -- a very scary situation. we've had a lot of commentary in the last few days from the brits, the u.s., and now russia, and all of it is building a picture that this is not a secured zone. so, in addition to all the concerns that they're having, some of them traveling with young children, poppy, in
7:02 am
addition to all of that, many of them we spoke to said fundamentally they don't feel safe here, poppy? >> thank you very much for the reporting live from sharm el sheikh. we'll bring you the latest on that, of course, as we have it. also to politic and, quote, a bunch of lies. that is what republican hopeful ben carson said firing back after questions have surfaced about his violent past. a cnn team traveled to his hometown of detroit this week. they spoke with a number of people who knew carson growing up. many said they were surprised by his claims, including the claim that he once tried to attack someone with a knife. earlier today, though, dr. carson doubled down during his interview with allison camarata. >> this is a bunch of lies. this is what it is. it is a bunch of lies. attempting, you know, to say that i'm lying about my history. i think it's pathetic. and basically what the media does is they try to get you distracted with all of this stuff so that you don't talk about the things that are
7:03 am
important, because we have so many important things. and, you know, i'm not proud of the fact that i had these rage episodes, but i am proud of the fact that i was able to get over them. >> look, of course -- >> my message has been that you can escape from that kind of angry. >> yes, people are resonating with that. >> and some of the victims who are member of my family, i understand that, i will not let them be victimized again by the media. and if you choose to believe i'm incapable of these acts, that's kind of a compliment. >> dr. carson, your story has changed, for instance, first you say that bob was your close friend who you almost killed. and then yesterday you said, well, actually, his name wasn't bob. i changed the names and that's fine. people do that all the time, dr. carson, in their memoirs. >> i changed names throughout all the books. >> yes. >> even of patients -- >> people. >> -- because unless i have specific permission from them to use their names, that's an inappropriate thing to do. >> of course, and people change
7:04 am
the names in their memoirs all the time. but they note that. they note that at the beginning if they say that fictitious names are going to be used. but nevertheless you changed it again to say he was not your close friend, he was a family member. >> he was a family member. >> okay. >> and, you know, i really don't want to expose him further, you know, i talked to him, you know, he would prefer to stay out of the media. and i -- i think -- i want to respect that. >> look, dr. carson, i know you call it tactics. it's called vetting in politics. you know it well just in the short time that you've been involved with the campaigns. >> is that what you did with the current president, is that what you did with him? >> yes, in fact -- >> give me a break. >> "dreams of my father" was also vetted. >> are you kidding me. >> don't you remember there was a whole question about his girlfriend and people went back to try to find the president's girlfriend and it turned out that she may have been a composite character and that was revealed as he had to talk about that. >> some of the things you all
7:05 am
did with president obama doesn't even come close, doesn't even come close, to what you guys are trying to do in my case and you're going to just keep going back trying to find he said this 12 years ago, he said -- you know, it is just garbage. >> meanwhile, a new cnn/orc poll out this morning shows that in iowa voters there are embracing political outsiders, front runner donald trump and ben carson battling it out for the top spot. and senators mark rube rubio and ted cruz falling behind. we've seen lot of candidates blame the media. that resonates with the public, doesn't it? >> you're totally correct, a very popular thing to do to attack the media. look, there are plenty of times when candidates say that the media is biased. we saw that after the last cnbc debate. but in this issue with ben carson it's sort of interesting
7:06 am
because we aren't the ones who brought the story, the past violent acts to light. it's the candidate himself who has talked about his history of violence and then finding jesus and how it's changed him, and he uses that as sort of a corner stone of his biography on the campaign trail and it's part of the reason he's been able to resonate so well with evangelical voters in iowa and we see that with our latest poll today. and when scott glover went to try to corroborate his story and said no one who recognized that violent ben carson is a little perplexing when it's a story he's clearly very fond of telling. >> do you think, sara, with all of your political experience and being on the trail, that these questions surfacing will hurt him, or will he effectively be able to play them off as the media is doing this to me, it is unfair, it is not right? >> well, i'm sure with republican primary voters this will be very popular. you know, i'm not sure that these questions about his past
7:07 am
will move them one way or another, but, you know, i do think that we have to keep pressing him and his campaign. and i know that we at cnn are continuing to do that to get some of these answers about these stories and get a better understanding of what happened. look, this is part of vetting a presidential candidate. you want to know where they stand on a variety of issues, but you also want to understand their temperament and understand what they're like under expressful situations and that's all part of preparing to be president and running for president. and so, you know, i think that's the broader question, is will there be other questions about ben carson's past about this transformation and how will that sit with voters in iowa. >> sara murray from washington, thank you very much. let's talk more about this with ryan lizza a washington correspondent for "the new yorker" and also editor in chief of "the hill" bob cusack. i hope you were able to hear the interview that dr. ---en gave to alison camarata this morning. what's your reaction?
7:08 am
>> i think it's a strange story that he's defending his rageful past, but at the same time in that interview you saw some fire in the belly from dr. carson. >> yep. >> i think voters need to see that. i think it's -- whether this helps him or hurts him, i think it's how he plays it as sara mentioned bashing the media is always popular. i thought he played it pretty well, but it's an unstory. but i think that if he stories that he's tough, he's been a bit mild mannered in the debates. i think that has translated into good numbers for him, but i think it's good that he's showing some fight. >> ryan, i think it's really important to also point out here how much president obama's book "dream s of my father" before h became president was indeed vetted. dr. carson said in the interview with alison that basically the media doesn't hold the president to the same bar they are holding carson when he wrote in his book. what the president said in an - interview with "vanity fair," i'm about what really happened in this his book and about this
7:09 am
quote quote-unquote girlfriend in new york. it was about compression. i was sensitive not to write about my girlfriends partly out of respect for them, so that was a consideration. i thought the anecdote involving the reaction of a white girlfriend to the angry black play was a useful theme to make about sort of the interactions that i had in the relationships with white girlfriends. the media took him to task for this. and for jeremiah wright. >> absolutely right. another example from obama's book that is almost an exact parallel with what's going on with carson. if you remember in that book obama talked about how the wayward period of his youth and he talked about drug use. he talked about smoking a lot of pot, but then there was also a line where he said maybe a little blow talking about cocaine. people went back and looked at that. and nobody could remember barack obama ever using cocaine. so, this very strange situation where he seemed to be suggesting his drug use was a little
7:10 am
further out there than maybe it actually was. very similar with ben carson talking about his violent past maybe exaggerating or at least people not remembering it was that bad. so, there's almost an exact parallel with the way that obama's book was vetted. and as alison pointed out this morning, that's fine. people do that in memoirs, but if you are a memoir writer and you are presenting something as nonfiction, you need to disclose that. >> i do want to get your take, both of you, on the gop debate coming up, right? you have candidates like governor chris christie this morning and also mike huckabee bumped to the undercard debate. they both came out and said on twitter or in interviews that's fine, not a big deal. i'm happy to debate the issues anywhere. what does this mean for them? >> well, it's interesting donald trump just tweeted he thinks they both should be on the main stage. that's very interesting. i think christie's done well in the debates and mike huckabee certainly less so. the base just doesn't trust
7:11 am
christie. remember mike huckabee finished second in 2008. so, to -- to john mccain and he's not been able to capture that magic. it's a tough road for these guys to come back. >> yeah. >> ryan, to you about that, but also about iowa. you know, we heard donald trump a few weeks ago sort of pleading with the voters in iowa, half jokingly, half seriously, saying, come on, support me, iowa, what do you think lies ahead for trump in iowa? >> you know, iowa's electorate is very conservative. evangelical voters are a big percentage of that electorate. and so he's got to figure out a way to appeal to that segment of the electorate without changing who he is. he's not a guy that wears religion on his sleeve and a lot of republican candidates that do successfully in iowa do, they talk a lot more about social issues than trump is comfortable talking about. on the debate stage, you know, it's pretty deadly for mike huckabee and christie. nobody has been able to break
7:12 am
through at those undercard debates. if you're not on the big stage it's like you're not competing. and i know it's tough for the networks to come up with criteria that is outside of the polls. but, boy, to me it just seems so strange that carson and trump because they are doing well in the polls get to be on the main stage but a governor like christie or a former governor like mike huckabee getting pushed to the sidelines. maybe randomly pick the candidates and maybe add something into the criteria that's just not the polls had is not very predictive of who will win anyway. >> i had this vision of us, ryan, picking names out of a hat. >> why not? it's one of the things people have proposed. the issue is you have -- >> i don't think that would play very well either. i don't know the answer. >> the problem is you have a lot of really fringe candidates who hundreds of people file to run and the idea is you want to keep those people off the stage which
7:13 am
is understandable. >> understood. so nice to have you both this morning. have a great weekend. >> thanks, poppy. >> thanks, poppy. >> thank you. still to come here, a tragic story out of chicago, he calls the murder of this 9-year-old little boy an execution. i will speak live with the chicago priest who is taking extraordinary measures to find his killer. want to survive a crazy busy day? sfx: cell phone chimes start with a positive attitude... and positively radiant skin. aveeno® positively radiant moisturizer... with active naturals® soy. aveeno® naturally beautiful results®. count on being slammed this hwith orders. we're getting slammed with orders. and my customers knowing right when their packages arrive. totally slammed! introducing real-time delivery notifications. one more reason this is our season. after a dvt blood clot.mind when i got out of the hospital what about my family? my li'l buddy? and what if this happened again?
7:14 am
i was given warfarin in the hospital but i wondered if this was the right treatment for me. then my doctor told me about eliquis. eliquis treats dvt and pe blood clots and reduces the risk of them happening again. not only does eliquis treat dvt and pe blood clots, but eliquis also had significantly less major bleeding than the standard treatment. knowing eliquis had both... turned around my thinking. don't stop eliquis unless your doctor tells you to. eliquis can cause serious and in rare cases fatal bleeding. don't take eliquis if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. if you had a spinal injection while on eliquis call your doctor right away if you have tingling, numbness, or muscle weakness. while taking eliquis, you may bruise more easily... and it may take longer than usual for bleeding to stop. seek immediate medical care for sudden signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising. eliquis may increase your bleeding risk if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures. eliquis treats dvt & pe blood clots. plus had less major bleeding. both made switching to eliquis right for me.
7:15 am
ask your doctor if it's right for you. i was out for a bike ride. i didn't think i'd have a heart attack. but i did. i'm mike, and i'm very much alive. now my doctor recommends a bayer aspirin regimen to help prevent another heart attack. be sure to talk to your doctor before you begin an aspirin regimen.

you're taking a look at live pictures of a courtroom in plattsburgh, new york, this is where attorneys are arguing a restitution hearing they want joyce mitchell the prison seamstress who smuggled in hacksaws and blades used by two convicted murderers when they broke out of prison, they want her to pay a restitution to pay
7:18 am
back about $120,000 part of the cost related to the multimillion dollar manhunt upstate. one of the inmates she helped escape died when he was shot by police officers while on the run. the other david sweat is now back in prison. turning to chicago. a chicago family preparing right now to bury their 9-year-old son. it is an unimaginable task for any parent. you see him right there tyshawn lee 9 years old killed earlier this week an apparent victim of his father's gang ties. he is one of the 391 people -- 391 people -- in chicago murdered this year alone. that is an 18% increase over last year. and it is just one week in to november. in the meantime a priest on chicago's south side laments the tragic turn his bloeloved city s taken. writing on facebook what have we become, chicago, when a 9-year-old boy can be executed
7:19 am
in an alley at 4:00 p.m. in the afternoon. we are joined by that priest father michael pfleger. thank you for being with me. >> thank you, poppy. >> you know the pain of this all too well. a son that you fostered at 18 years old back in 1998 killed in gang cross fire. why does this keep happening? >> you know, i think one of the reasons, poppy, is that we have not had the courage to not just deal with the violence but to deal with the causes in the society and the realities that keep giving birth to this violence. we've got broken homes, broken neighborhoods. we've got high unemployment. we have no jobs. we have poverty. we have racism. we have poor education systems. we create the perfect storm. and -- but this is a new level, where we've just gone to a new low. when you now -- what kind of human being can execute a 9-year-old boy? what kind of a creature is that and what kind of society produces people like that?
7:20 am
>> we know, we're looking at pictures of beautiful little 9-year-old tyshawn and his funeral will be held at your church on tuesday. have you spoken with his family? >> yes. i've talked to his mother and his father both over the last number of days and his aunties and the grandmother. the mother we had to take to the hospital the other day because she was just laying on the ground in the place where he was killed for hours. and we finally got her to the hospital to get some help and some sedatives. she hadn't slept since monday. the father is angry and hurt simultaneously. and no matter what the father has done in the past or what he's involved in or what connection this may be, you know, the reality is he was not there when this happened. that if you execute -- if you're mad at the father and you take it out now on -- on children -- there used to be a day where there was a code. you didn't kill children. you didn't kill mothers. you didn't kill grand mothers.
7:21 am
that code is removed. there's no boundaries. there's no moral center. >> let's listen to part of what you said about tyshawn's death yesterday. >> there's an execution of a baby took place on our watch in the city of chicago. we must now put the code back. we've got to draw the line back. we've got to put the barriers back saying this here is not going to be tolerated. >> what did you mean by bring back the line? where is the line? >> we've got to bring a line back. first of all, i mean, i would love to get the line back to saying we don't kill each other, you know, we can disagree, we can fight, we can argue. we have minds. we have mouths. we can speak to each other. but there was a code -- it was several years ago, poppy, if a person, gang member or not, killed a child on the street, they had to be worried about themselves not being killed by the street. and when they went to prison not being killed, because them were just things you didn't do. and now we've said that this has
7:22 am
now become a new normal? no. we have to somehow draw that line and say, no, this is not going to become a normal. this is not going to be acceptable. >> and you are doing something extraordinary for a civilian. i mean, you're offering to relocate people that come forward with any information about who could have killed tyshawn. >> right. we have a reward fund that's now $35,000. but i said yesterday, because the question keeps coming up of the fear. and i understand that. i think somehow sometimes our -- our -- doing the right thing has to overcome our fear. but if somebody says, hey, i'll do it, i'll i.d. him, but i need to be able to move out of state, i will personally do that. i will help them relocate out of my own pocket, some other city, some other place for their safety if that's what it takes in order for them to come forward. we need to put this person in jail. >> father michael pfleger for us from chicago this morning. thank you very much for your time and for all you're doing for your city. >> thank you, poppy. still to come, ben carson

republican presidential hopefuls ben carson and donald trump muscling it out for the top top, a new cnn poll showing the two candidates neck and neck. carson doing well among evangelical voters 31% now say they back carson. religion will no doubt play a very important in this election. according to the pew research center interesting fact here, 28% of democrats say they now have no religious affiliation. they're the biggest group now of democrats and they've become known as nones.
7:28 am
n-o-n-e-s. the republican party, you say, half of them -- half of that, 14%, have no religious affiliation. with me to talk about this and a lot more president and ceo of samaritan's president, steven graham. thank you for being here. >> thank you, poppy. >> you have your father's book. >> it's his last one. >> he's 97 years old. his last book. how is he doing? >> poppy, he's doing pretty good. his mind is clear. he just has a hard time hearing and, you know, just seeing. his eyes have gotten a little dim, but we're just so grateful that his mind is with us and he still wants people to know that god loves them and that jesus christ came from heaven to this earth to take their sins and if they would confess and repent and believe on the name of the lord jesus christ the bible says god will forgive our sins and heal our hearts. and he still wants to preach that more today than ever. and this book is about -- it's
7:29 am
about eternity. it's about heaven. and it's about hell. and i think it may be the best book that he's written because he took the most time on it. >> really? >> yeah. over three years to write it, but it's a great book. >> "where i am, heaven, eternity and our life beyond." >> yeah. >> so, moving beyond that let's talk about some of the poll numbers i just showed. ben carson, for example, is resonating so well in iowa, especially among evangelical voters. what do you think it is about him that touches so many people on the religion front? >> well, first of all, i've known ben for a long time. i've been in his home. dr. carson's just an amazing man. the story of his life, to come out of where he came from to be a neurosurgeon, pediatric neurosurgeon, one of the leading neurosurgeons in the world, separated the siamese twins, he's an incredible guy. he's a kind man. a very nice, gentle person and i think that resonates with a lot of people. he's very committed to his
7:30 am
faith. and i've known donald trump for a number of years, and he's a -- he's a sharp, nice guy. good guy with a lot of great ideas for the country. and the republican field, their problem is they've got a lot of capable, good men out there that could lead this country. >> it sounds like a pretty good problem to have. >> it's a good problem to have and -- >> are you supporting ben carson or donald trump for -- >> no. i'm staying out of it. and what i'm doing next year, poppy, i'm starting on january 5th and i'm going to every state capital and i'm holding prayer rallies. i'll go to every state starting in january on the 5th of january calling christians to gather and pray for our nation. look, the republican party is not going to turn the country around. the democrats certainly can't turn it around. i don't have any faith in the political parties. the only hope we have is for god to intervene and i want the church to stand up and to vote. >> and you will be clearly going after, targeting some of these so-called nones that i brought
7:31 am
up. >> you better believe it. >> 28% of the democratic party have no religious affiliation and in the republican party 14% have no religious affiliation. part of it pew says is generational. what else is it about? >> it's about prayer. our nation is in trouble. >> why have so many left the church and left having a religious affiliation? >> first of all, look at our education system in this country. we've taken god out of our schools. we've taken god out of the society. if you pray at a football game, you could lose your job like we saw out in washington state. and so there's a lot of young people today that have grown up in a secular education system. and -- and as a result you have a lot of people who are -- >> but do they need to be mixed? i mean, i went to a school, i didn't have religion in my school, but i got it at home and at church. do they need to be mixed? >> absolutely. no question. when i was growing up we still had the lord's prayer in our church -- i mean, in our schools. the -- the teacher led the
7:32 am
classroom and there was a respect for god. there was a respect for -- >> teaching when we go to school with christians and jews and muslims? >> oh, the true faith that there's a god in heaven and his son is jesus christ and that's -- and that's what this nation was built on. and -- >> that's your faith, not roinleroinl everyone's faith. >> not everyone's but i'm an evangelist, i want to stand up for lord jesus. and i respect people of other faiths and i want them to know the truth and i want them to know there's only one way to god. jesus said the way, the truth and the light and no one comes to the father except by me. >> franklin graham, thank you very much, your father, i hope you get to enjoy his birthday 97 years old and out with yet another book. the final book from billy graham. >> i signed this one for you. >> thank you very much, sir. we'll look to what you do starting in january starting with the prayer rallies. thank you. thank you very much.
7:33 am
hillary clinton speaking about her -- her presidential rival, ben carson, during a stop last night on jimmy kimmel. the host asked her what she thought about some of dr. carson's recent controversial comments and his rise in the polls. listen -- >> you know, seriously, it really does matter what you say when you are president, and it probably should matter what you say when you're running for president, because people all over the world, especially leaders of friends and foes alike, they pay attention to what presidents say. so, i really know we're in the -- you know, we're in the campaign season and people are saying all kinds of stuff, some of which they believe, some of which they think will get them votes, whatever the case might be. but then it does have to turn serious. >> cnn's jeff zeleny joining us now to talk a little bit more about that and about some of the poll numbers. she also, jeff, had some advice for jeb bush which i think was interesting. >> she sure did.
7:34 am
she almost sounded sympathetic to the plight of jeb bush's campaign, almost. she talked about his new slogan. she talked about the difficulties he's been having on the road. let's take a listen to this. so interesting the bush and clinton family dynasty here as she offered a vice to jeb bush. >> when he comes out with a slogan like jeb can fix it, do you guys back at the office die laughing, is that, like -- is that amusing to you? >> you know -- you know, look -- it's really hard to do this. he's obviously trying to continue to relate to the republican electorate so -- >> it sounds like he's running a handy man business. should be on the side of a van. >> well, you know, if i were to advise him, i'd say, you know, there's a lot you could do about trying to fix things. and maybe they should put a number on the side of the bus people can call. >> it would be nice. >> so, she clearly is trying to
7:35 am
hold her substantive advice for jeb bush but she was definitely playing along with jimmy kimmel there. that slogan has come under a bit of ridicule, jeb can fix this, because it certainly has a double meaning there. but we saw one side of hillary clinton that we don't see a lot on the campaign trail, she's actually very, very funny. if you talk to her old friends, you know, some of her advisers who really know her, they say she is very, very funny, so it's one of the reasons she's taking the -- the turn again at one of these late night talk shows. >> sure. >> she's been on three now, so she's very good. >> and the viewership is huge. >> of course. >> it certainly doesn't hurt either. >> of course. >> let's dig into the new polls this morning for the critical state this iowa ahead of the caucuses there. you've got hillary clinton at 55%. sanders at 37%. o'malley at just 3%. what i thought was interesting when i dig in a little more among likely caucusgoers 62% are backing clinton.
7:36 am
32% sanders. why? >> no question. i think people are definitely -- democrats are definitely coming around the idea that she is more likely to be their nominee than not with joe biden out of the race, of course, not jumping in. you know, even if democrats -- even the ones who are a little hesitant to her, they still think that she will be the nominee. she also has a lot more support among voters age 50 and older, and she also has a lot of support among women. the gender divide in the iowa electorate is so significant there. and she also even has a small lead among men here, so i think we see where this race is heading. and democrats, many of them, are already looking forward to the general election campaign. she, of course, knows she can't take anything for granted here. >> yeah. >> but this is a very strong iowa number for hillary clinton. >> hey, it's not over until it's over. >> that's right. she knows well. >> especially back in 2008. >> she knows well. right. >> jeff tezeleny, thank you ver

russia's president vladimir putin reversing course, agreeing that flights to egypt should be suspended. up until now russia and egypt had been very cautious against the u.s. intelligence suggesting that a bomb may have brought down the russian airliner on saturday. cnn's matthew chance is live for us in moscow with more. it's interesting because the uk intelligence came out, u.s. intelligence came out saying, look, this could be, likely was a bomb, but then putin wouldn't say that they agreed or that they were suspending flights. now he's totally reversed course. do we know why? >> reporter: no, it's really
7:42 am
interesting, isn't it? but just yesterday the russian foreign ministry issued an ig dignant statement saying that they are shocked the united kingdom they were referring to then, but it would apply equaly to the u.s., have some sort of information that they haven't passed on to russia and they were critical of the move to suspend flights and saying it could have been a bomb. but, you're right, now they seemed to have reversed the position. it's a major development i think from the russian point of view because for the first time the russian now appear to be acknowledging, although they're not saying it directly, that it could have been a bomb that brought down the metro jet airliner and killed 224 people. what other reason would they have for suspending flights to the sinai peninsula? so, that has been now put into action by the russian president. he's also said that we need to give help -- russians need to give help -- to bring russian citizens back from the sinai peninsula. and it's a major tourist destination for russians.
7:43 am
there are 50,000 russian citizens in the sinai peninsula right now, so it's a major logistic operation to get them back before any full ban on flights to sinai can be -- can be, you know, imposed. >> the first funerals are under way right now. and i would suspect that the sense of anger at the lack of answers is growing. >> reporter: yeah. i mean, i haven't detected any anger. but certainly a lot of questions being asked, you know, people want to know why 224 ordinary russians that were just seeking a bit of winter sun, escape from the cold in russia, lost their lives. and, you know, i think this development today about the banning of the flights gets us a little bit closer in the sense that if it is -- if there this ban, it could have been terrorism, it could have been a bomb, however unpleasant that may be, it will at least provide some kind of answer. the real interesting thing, poppy, is what the political consequences will be. because this is russia, this is

the kremlin's worst-case scenario, they're engaged in syria. they've been carrying out air strikes there. it's a very sensitive military operation for public opinion in russia. this could jeopardize public support for it, if russians believe they are now paying the price for the kremlin policy bombing isis in syria, you know, it could have a blowback impact on the kremlin. >> right. >> reporter: i think the government's going to be very sensitive about that. >> absolutely. again, the headline there vladimir putin agreeing and now the flights from russia to egypt suspended. matthew chance, thank you very much for us in moscow this evening. still to some here, stunning new details about an illinois cop that staged his own suicide. you'll remember the story well. headlines all over the place a few months ago. now the police say it is a suicide. did he also try to hire a hit man? rosa flores with that next. many wrinkle creams come with high hopes, but hope... doesn't work on wrinkles.

a disturbing twist in the investigation in to the death of lieutenant joe glenn gleinowicz may have hired a hit man to kill a village official who was auditing the mentoring program that he'd allegedly been embezzling tens of thousands of dollars from for years. rosa flores following this story for us in fox lakes. it gets more and more bizarre all this energy being put in to who people thought months and months ago had murdered this officer. >> reporter: we learn more and more, poppy, by the day.
7:50 am
forces confirming to cnn that lieutenant gliniewicz widow and his son are also being investigated for possibly being involved in the embezzlement of thousands of dollars. now, do you remember those deleted text messages that authorities released a few days ago? well, sources confirming that individual one mentioned was actually the widow and that individual two was lieutenant gliniewicz son. but like you said, probably the most shocking revelation at this particular time is this -- this notion that lieutenant gliniewicz was exploring, possibly planning, to plant a hit on the village administrator. now, authorities tell us that their first hint of this was a clue that they saw in one of those text messages. now, i want to read that to you, and i'm going to quote here this text message. it says "close to entertaining a meeting with the mutual acquaintance of ours with the
7:51 am
word white in their nickname." now, authorities tell us that white is a code word for the name of a high-ranking gang member. they say they did some police work. they contacted this gang member, and this gang member denied everything. but imagine being that village administrator who learns that there was a possible hit against her. she put her feelings in her own words. take a listen -- >> it's very unsettling. again, you know, my concern is my family. it's quite unbelievable and almost surreal, i would say. >> reporter: now, i asked her about her interaction with gliniewicz. she said it was always very professional. he always said yes, ma'am, no, ma'am. and then i also asked her what was the first red flag, what did you notice about the explorer program that caught your attention. and poppy, she says that there
7:52 am
were a lot of red flags, that there was no budget for the explorer program, that there were no schedules, that he just simply had money at his disposal, poppy? >> i know that police are saying that gliniewicz also was -- was allegedly trying to plant evidence. on who? >> reporter: you know, authorities tell me that those were also clues coming from the thousands of messages that they recovered. gliniewicz, they say, deleted a lot of these messages, but authorities, you know, telling us those deleted messages are still there. they don't go anywhere. it was in those messages that he alluded to planting evidence on the village administrator, according to authorities. now, they found cocaine in his desk. an unmarked evidence bag with cocaine. and so they connected the dots and thought -- that was their theory, that he perhaps was going to plant that cocaine on the village administrator, but
7:53 am
they followed that theory, and they never found evidence for it. poppy? >> rosa flores reporting for us live from fox lake. thank you very much. coming up next, a story you do not want to miss. a "star wars" fan gets the gift of a lifetime. at ally bank no branches equals great rates. it's a fact. kind of like playing the boss equals the boss wins. wow!
