tv Early Start With John Berman and Christine Romans CNN November 2, 2016 12:00am-1:01am PDT
i am sick and tired of the negative, dark, divisive, dangerous vision and behavior of people who support donald trump! >> hillary clinton overnight going after a protester at one of her rallies. you will see in just a moment what set her off. this is the biggest scandal since watergate. >> donald trump sticks to the script, hammering clinton on e-mails. can he stay on message in these final days of the race? >> and then a new fbi move draws new questions. the sudden release of files from
a 15-year-old clinton investigation with less than a week to go before election day. good morning, everyone. welcome to this special early, early edition of "early start." >> i'm john berman. >> and i'm christine romans. it is 3:00 a.m., early in east. six days to go until the race for president. developments changing by the hour. here is the latest, overnight hillary clinton angrily lashed out at a trump supporter from the podium at a rally in florida. donald trump's campaign just hours ago denouncing a show of support from the kkk's official newspaper. the fbi out with a statement defending itself after tweeting out documents from a long-closed clinton investigation from a long, dormant twitter account. >> let's start with less than a week to go, both candidates out on the trail deep into the night. we saw something at the hillary clinton event we haven't seen before. this was a rally in sanford, florida. she went right after a protester who called her husband a rapist.
watch this. >> i love this country. i think we already are great! now, i think we can be greater. and, you know, i am sick and tired of the negative, dark, divisive, dangerous vision and behavior of people who support donald trump! it is time for us to say no, we are not going backwards, we're going forward into a brighter future! >> hillary clinton calling out the calvary this week of president obama, vice president biden, former president clinton, bernie sanders, all on the trail crisscrossing the country from carson city to cal a ma zoo. latest from ft. lauderdale. >> john and christine, hillary clinton is heading out west today. she will be campaigning in
las vegas and arizona. part of the plan to expand the battleground map, particularly arizona, that red state. but i can tell you she is focused on blue states more than she ever planned to be. she was in florida all day yesterday campaigning across the state at three rallies. seldom has she had three campaign rallies in one day. of course, donald trump often does, but now she knows this race is tighter than she ever expected. at a rally in sanford, florida, she allowed for a moment the possibility this could not turn out her way. >> i want to build on the progress that president obama has made! so think how you'll feel if there was something you could have done but didn't on november the 9th, if this -- if this doesn't work. personally i can't imagine. >> reporter: secretary clinton
is using that as a rallying cry, trying to get her voters the the polls through early voting or at the polls next tuesday on election day. the clinton campaign is trying to fortify the blue wall. they're advertising now in states they had not planned to. blue states like colorado, michigan, wisconsin, virginia, trying to fortify it as donald trump tries to puncture that. now, the next six days of the campaign will be so interesting. the clinton campaign still trying to assess the fallout from the e-mail controversy. she is trying to turn arizona blue, but she will be heading back to the east coast, hitting some of the blue states again like pennsylvania and michigan and detroit there on friday. john and christine, the finish of this election much more interesting than we ever thought it might be. >> largely thanks to reporting by the likes of jeff selmany. >> yes, personally making it interesting ge. >> yes. this morning the fbi is facing brand-new questions about the timing of some of its actions.
the bureau released a new set of files relating to the clinton's past. this is a release some are calling inexplicable. joining us, eugene scott. >> good morning. >> reporter: good morning. >> eugene, these documents have to do with mark rich. what is in them? why were they released? >> reporter: they're redacted files from the 2001 par don by former president bill clinton regarding mark rich. he's an international financier, a former hedge fund manager. they've been made public and a lot of clinton supporters are wondering why now, why nearly 15 years later and just a week before the election has this been made available to voters. >> what are democrats saying about the timing of this release? >> reporter: well, it has become an issue that brings more attention to comey, who has had a very rough week with some democratic lawmakers and strategists wondering why he's making the decisions that he is. they're also wondering if the
fbi is going to make public some of the investigations from donald trump. we saw brian fallon, one of clinton's spokes people, mentioning the investigations from the agency into donald trump's housing discrimination cases for the '70s. so they're just harping on it, wondering what is behind all of this. >> and the fbi came out overnight with a defense, a pretty technical defense of the fact that they're releasing this. what do they say? >> reporter: yeah, we've got part of the statement here for us. the fbi is saying in part, by law freedom of information act materials that have been requested three or mower times are posted electronically to the fbi's public reading room shortly after they are processed. >> interesting. >> reporter: very interesting. so the thought is that they did nothing wrong. they did just what they would normally do. it just happens to be not great timing for the clinton campaign. >> i'm reaching back into my brain because it is one of the stories i covered as a
derivatives, a futures market reporting, because it was someone who was well-known. his wife i believe was a big fundraiser for the clintons, so at the time all of this was a big topic of conversation. and then the pardon, there was some who thought the pardon was improper. >> at the time, it was 15 years ago, and the criticism they're facing is why release this stuff now. >> right. >> and it was from a twitter account that apparently had been dark for almost a year or a website that hadn't connected to it, but the fbi says this is the process they go through. >> interesting. thank you for the details. >> reporter: thank you. >> donald trump, his running mate mike pence goes to arizona, new mexico and colorado. at a rally last night, trump jumped over hillary clinton's e-mails. he raised a newly released wikileaks, in which john podesta told an aide they were going to have to dump all of those
e-mails. which appears false. the context in general washington speak means release the e-mails. jim acosta has the latest. >> reporter: john and christine, donald trump is showing off a side we rarely see on the campaign trail, message discipline. at a rally in wisconsin, trump stayed on the attack on hillary clinton's e-mail saga saying she only has herself to blame. he also went after john podesta whose e-mails were hacked and released by wikileaks. here he is what he said at this rally in wisconsin. >> in a new released e-mail john podesta was caught saying we have to dump all of these e-mails. can you believe this? that's wikileaks. and he also said, to me this made a big statement. john podesta -- i tell you what, if he worked for me i would fire him so fast. he is such a nasty guy. i would fire him. like "the apprentice," john, you're fired. >> and trump is reminding people
here in wisconsin and a handful of other states they can change their vote if they cast and earlier absentee ballot, but it is an option rarely used by voters. john and christine. >> jim acosta in wisconsin. this morning the trump campaign is denouncing a show of support from the official newspaper of the ku klux klan. want to show you the front page of "the crusader" that borrows a trump campaign slogan, make america great again. and it says the way to achieve that greatness is become a white christian. it released a statement saying this publication is repulsive and views do not represent the tens of millions of americans uniting behind our campaign. remember, earlier in the primary donald trump himself was slow to denounce or repudiate david duke, former grand wizard, in an interview with jay tapper after the fact that donald trump did denounce them and the kkk.
>> there's a horrible robo call, and the campaign was quick to denounce that horrible robo call from someone claiming to be a white nationalist. nearly 25 million americans have cast ballots in early voting nationwide, and there might be signs of trouble brewing for democrats. there's a drop off in african-american turnout in key battleground states. in north carolina early turnout among white voters is up over 6% from 2012. early voting by african-americans is down more than 5%. >> president obama heads to north carolina today, a large part is to address the african-american vote there and campaign for hillary clinton. the president's now hitting on a new theme on the trail. in ohio he challenged men to think about what he considers the double standard that hillary clinton faces as a candidate. >> i want every man out there who is voting to kind of look inside yourself and ask yourself, well, if you're having problems with this stuff, how much of it is we are just not used to it. so that, you know, like -- you
know, when -- when a guy's ambitious and out in the public arena and working hard, well, that's okay. but when a woman suddenly does it, suddenly you're like, well, why is she doing that. i'm just being honest. i want you to think about it because she is so much better qualified than the other guy. >> the president's going to be busy the next few days. he heads to jacksonville, miami in florida on thursday. on friday will be a site to be determined based on where the polls say he is needed most. >> wow. the financial power of both presidential campaigns playing out on the nation's airwaves. a total of $44 million will be flooding local stations and cable stations. the clin tom campaign and super pacs are spending 25 1/2 million in the final week. donald trump's campaign and outside groups are unloading 18.6 million. those numbers will likely grow
we're told. the trump campaign said they'll spend a total of 25 million. the clinton said they will spend six figures on ad buys. clinton burned through $225 million on tv ads since the primaries ended. trump spent a total of 91 million. by the end of this election the campaigns and all outside groups are forecast to spend more than $500 million on television ads. >> but it is less. in some way campaign spending is less than it has been because donald trump hasn't shelled out for ads the way other cannodidas have in the past. >> yes, but it is a lot of money. >> they're not starving. >> no, they're not. >> we have six days to go until election day. we will layout the paths forward for each candidate and what will be new on the trail today. we have special insight from a special guest coming up
and still deliver 21 grams of protein with 100 calories. they're great for workouts. so great that if you don't get up to fifteen percent more reps, more laps, more distance, we'll give you your money back - period. protein shots from 5-hour energy. great taste. 100 calories. 21 grams of protein. before it became a medicine, it was an idea. a wild "what-if." so scientists went to work. they examined 87 different protein structures and worked for 12 long years. there were thousands of patient volunteers and the hope of millions. and so after it became a medicine, someone who couldn't be cured, could be. me. ♪
. all right. hillary clinton goes west today, trying to flip arizona from red to blue. also in nevada, a key early voting state. donald trump is in florida for kind of a two-day blitz there. let's bring in senior media correspondent and host of krn's reliable sources, brian stelter. we saw what she is trying to do. she is trying to say goodbye to the fbi and e-mails and hello again to donald trump and his issues with women. introducing her on stage at one of her events in florida was alicia machado, former ms. universe who says donald trump once called her ms. piggy. let's listen to her. >> trump was overwhelming. i was scared of him. he made fun of me, and i didn't know how to respond. he thinks he can do whatever he wants and get away with it.
together we are going to say loudly and clearly, no trump. he is not getting away with it. >> this is all stuff that in this campaign has been a huge deal, but it hasn't been in the news the last three or four days because of the fbi and e-mails. >> it's been overshadowed by the fbi stoerks and clinton clearly trying to bring it back, trying to resurrect this as an issue. i'm not sure how effective it can be however. you know, we've herald her testimony in the past. we've heard from women who say they've experienced unwanted advances from trump, but those stories feel a mile away because of all of the other recent developments on this kind of minute biminute news cycle. it is interesting to see her trying to resurrect it but it is difficult to do it. >> redirect to what has worked for her in the past and redirecting away from the e-mail stuff, you know, from the
clinton perspective you have three, four, five different things from taxes to women, to tempt temperament and hillary clinton has ex mails, and they're trying to redirect. >> and it goes to whoever you are talking about is perceived to be losing. if you are talking about clinton, she is perceived to be losing. if you are talking about trump, he is perceived to be losing. it isn't entirely reflected in the polls bu it has been in the polls this year. i would point out every day clinton supporters are yelling at the tv wanting the conversation to be about basics, like where are trump's taxes. those are questions we won't get the answers to. >> two events he yesterday, one was about women and the second was about taxes. clearly that's what they're trying to do. krn polls right now, we think it is a four point race. if you average them in, still hillary clinton out on top, but less than it was before.
john stuart was at an event last night, bob woodrough, stand up for hero's event. john stewart is liberal and wants to elect democrats but he went after trump hard and he said something that echos what you are saying. he basically said when he saw the video of donald trump on the bus saying he would grab women in the genitals an get away because he was rich, he said, i thought that meant the election was over. >> over. his comment was he thought we could all pack it up, finish this because he thought the election would be over then. of course, that was almost a month ago. that tape came out october 7th. the election, of course, november 8th. so with that one month mark between that tape and election day, you think about all of the developments that have transpired in the past week or so, kind of disproving the thesis many liberals have that that would have finished the election. we heard a lot of pundits say it the weekend the tape came out as well. but if we know one thing, it is not just october surprises in this race, it is also november surprises. we are in the second day of
november, and historically the final weekend of a campaign there's something, there's some sort of surprise. >> with george w. bush in 2000. >> that being the best example. >> but it didn't matter. >> that's not true. >> karl rove said it affected a couple states. >> may have affected the recount. >> didn't affect the outcome. as we see more flimsy stories thrown at the candidates, what i would consider taking out the trash against clinton and trump, if one of the stories will stick this weekend, if one will matter in the final days of the campaign, otherwise what voters are hearing is a lot of noise, unsubstantiated news out there. >> come back. we will see you a few more times. >> and we'll play the other one next time. >> the russians may love this election apparently. it is being covered all overstate run television. one moscow food chain is offering limited edition trump and clinton sandwiches, which makes me hungry this morning. we will discuss that next. who says i shouldn't have a soda everyday?
my doctor. my dentist. definitely my wife. wait, i know what i want. make sparkling water at home. and drink 43% more water every day. sodastream. love your water.

. all right. the focus on the presidential election extends far beyond our borders. they're apparently very engaged in russia which has zero electoral votes. state media there committing more time to this race, and not just about computer hacking. claire sebastian live in moscow to explain what they're into. what are they watching? >> reporter: well, john, it is certainly fair to say the level of interest is rising as we get closer to the event. we're seeing promotions, promos on state media for election night coverage. as you say, it is not just about the fact that russia has been accused of middling in the u.s. election. russia, of course, not giving
that any credibility. president putin saying last week that was hysteria from the west. but, no, they're interested in the candidates themselves. don't forget, this is a time of deteriorating relations between russia and the u.s., and to have a candidate like donald trump who says outright he wants closer relations with russia, who praises president putin as a strong leader, well, that really is something of a novelty for the russians, so much so in fact that here in moscow we went to an event yesterday where a fast food chain, has about six restaurants here in the city, has launched a limited edition trump and clinton sandwich. they dedicated an entire event to the trump wrap, while really the clinton one was a bit of an afterthought. it even had a large serving of yellow mustard to represent his hair. we saw fans of donald trump at this event. one man saying that he hoped putin and trump would sit down for a drink together, and that would bring normal relations. so we do see -- i mean obviously if you talk to people on the
street, you will see some who would like, of course, young woman, who would like to see a woman in the white house, but overall we see a broad preference for donald trump, someone who says, of course, he wants closer relations with russia. >> i was sort of hip no tiesed by the sandwich, trying to figure out if it tastes good. i suppose few can't beat them, eat them. claire sebastian. thanks so much. >> or three big shots of vodka with the sandwich and it tastes great. >> then anything tastes great. >> at 3:20 in the morning, early to talk about vodka. donald trump and hillary clinton pulling out all of the stops in the home stretch of their campaign. we have every angle covered ahead on "early start."
night, lashing out at a protester. you'll see in a moment what set her off. this is the biggest scandal since watergate. >> donald trump on the trail, visiting blue states. can he stay on message? the final days of this race? >> a new fbi move draws questions. a sudden release of files from a 15-year-old clinton investigation with less than a week to go before election day. welcome back to "early start." i'm christine romans. >> i'm beejohn berman. we have six days to go until the election. this is what you missed overnight, hillary clinton angrily went after a protester during a rally in florida. donald trump's campaign just hours ago denounced a show of support from the kkk's official newspaper. and the fbi released a statement defending itself after tweeting out documents from a long-closed
investigation into the clintons, and this came from a twitter account that really seems barely used at all. raised a lot of questions. >> with less than a week to go, both candidates were on the trail deep into the night. we saw something at the hillary clinton event we have not seen before. at a rally in ft. lauderdale, florida, she went right after a protester who called her husband a rapist. watch this. >> i love this country. i think we already are great. now, i think we can be greater. and, you know, i am sick and tired of the negative, dark, divisive, dangerous vision and behavior of people who support donald trump! it is time for us to say no, we are not going backwards, we're going forward into a brighter future! >> that is a type of fired you do not see often from hillary clinton on the campaign trail.
she is calling out the cavalry this wean, barack obama, vice president biden, former president clinton, bernie sanders and more crisscrossing the country. cnn jeff zellany with the candidate from ft. lauderdale. >> hillary clinton is heading wesz today, she will be campaigning in las vegas and arizona, part of the plan to expand the battleground map, particularly arizona the red state. she is focused on blue states more than she planned to be. she was in florida all day yesterday campaigning across the state at three rallies. seldom has she had three campaign rallies in one day. of course, donald trump often does. now she knows the race is tighter than she expect. at a rally in sanford, florida, she allowed just for a moment the possibility it could not turn out her way. >> i want to build on the progress that president obama has made! so think how you'll feel if
there was something you could have done but didn't on november the 9th, if this -- if this doesn't work. personally, i can't imagine. >> of course, secretary clinton is using it as a rallying cry trying to get her voters to the polls through early voting or at the polls next tuesday on election day. the clinton campaign is trying to fortify the blue wall. they're advertising in states they had not planned to, states like colorado, michigan, wisconsin, virginia, trying to fortify it as donald trump tries to puncture that. now, the next six days of the campaign will be so interesting. the clinton campaign trying to assess the fallout from the e-mail controversy. she is trying to turn arizona blue, but then she will be heading back to the east coast, hitting some of the blue states again like pennsylvania and michigan, and dree trodetroit.
john and kristine, the finish more interesting than we thought it might be. >> the everything of this election is more interesting. the fbi is facing brand-new question bisexual the timing of some of its actions. the bureau released a new set of files related to the clinton's past, a release that critics are calling inexplicable. joining us cnn politics reporter eugene scott in washington this morning. nice to see you up bright and early. walk us through this. what is in these documents, eugene and why were they released now? >> these documents are about 130 pages of the investigation into mark rich, who was a former hedge fund trader who was pardoned on former president bill clinton's last day in office. it was one of the more controversial moves. they were tweeted by an fbi account yesterday from an account that had been dorm ant since about october 2015, after receiving quite a bit of criticism the fbi said this is
an automated account. we make these things public after they've been requested repeatedly. this account hadn't tweeted before because something was broken but the account was fixed on sunday. it is worth noting sunday is also the day that the clinton campaign really doubled down on some of its criticism of fbi director james comey following his release of a new investigation on friday into clinton. >> democrats not happy at all with the timing of this release, eugene. >> not at all. we saw brian fallon from the clinton campaign just call it odd, which is a repeated attack towards the fbi in the last several days in terms of its treatment towards hillary clinton because the campaign and other democratic lawmakers argue that the fbi has not been as forthcoming regarding investigations into donald trump including some of his activity with russia. >> how, eugene, is the fbi defending itself i guess at this point? >> we have part of a statement here. the fbi is saying in part,
by law foia materials that have been requested three or mower times are posted electronically to the fbi's public reading room shortly after they are processed. so they're saying this is a mere coincidence, this timing. it has nothing to do with political motivations that the palestinian con campaign may think could be the case. >> this will not ease the tensions between the clinton campaign and the fbi and this will only make, if hillary clinton wins a relationship between president-elect and the fbi director a little more tense i would think in the coming days and weeks. eugene scott, great to have you with us. thanks so much. >> reporter: thank you. >> donald trump heads to florida today. events in miami, orlando, pensacola. his running mate against to arizona, colorado. alt a rally in wisconsin, donald trump jumped all over hillary clinton's e-mails. he raised a newly-released hack from wikileaks, in which john podesta said they were going to have to quote, dump the ex
males. trump said he meant erase them, which appears to be face. in washington speak when you say dump he meant release the e-mails. cnn's jim acosta has the latest. >> john and christine, donald trump is showing off a side we rarely see on the campaign trail, message discipline. at a rally in wisconsin, trump stayed on the attack on hillary clinton's e-mail saga saying she only has herself to blame. he also went after her campaign manager john podesta whose e-mails were hack and released by wikileaks. here is what he had to say in wisconsin. >> in a newly released e-mail john podesta was caught saying we have to dumb all of those e-mails. can you believe this? that's wikileaks. and he also said -- to me this made a big statement. john podesta -- i tell you what, if he worked for me i would fire him so fast. he is such a nasty guy. he would -- i would fire him,
like "the apprentice," john, you're fired. >> trump is reminding people here in wisconsin and a handful of other states they can actually change their vote if they cast an earlier absentee ballot, but it is an option rarely used by voters. john and christine. >> jim acosta for us. this morning the trump campaign is denouncing an official show of support from the official newspaper of the kkk. look at this front page of the paper called "the crusader." they borrow the campaign slowingen of make american great again. they say the way to achieve that greatness is become a white, christian republic. the trump campaign said this paper is repulsive and their views do not represent the tens of millions of americans uniting behind our campaign. >> president obama heads to north carolina today to campaign for hillary clinton. the president is now hitting on a new theme on the campaign trail. in ohio he challenged men to think about what he considers
the double standard that hillary clinton faces as a candidate. >> you've got the look inside yourself and ask yourself, if you're having problems with this stuff, how much of it is, you know, we're just not used to it. so that, you know, like -- you know, when -- when a guy's ambitious and out in the public arena and working hard, well, that's okay. but when a woman suddenly does it, you're suddenly like it, well, why is she doing that. i'm just being honest. i want you to think about it because she is so much better qualified than the other guy. >> that was interesting. on twitter it was just noted when we highlighted at the top of the hour hillary clinton going after a protester at her event, maybe we talked about it in a way we wouldn't talk about it if it was a male candidate, something to think about here as the president is highlighting that and the issues candidates face on the trail. tomorrow the president heads to jacksonville, miami in florida.
on friday he's going to go somewhere, but they're not saying where just yet. it is going to be determined based on the polls and where he is needed most. >> i would say just on that point, usually she distracts or deflects and moves on and ignores people in the crowd. she went specificually after this guy. >> you do not often see a candidate, male or female, on the stump directly address the protester other than to say, you know, let him speak or, you know, they should go to a different place. >> first amendment, this is what is so great about this country, we have the first amendment and the person is ushered out. she was clearly fired up by that particular remark. male or female, it was a departure for the candidate. the financial power of both presidential campaigns playing out on the nation's airwaves. a total of $44 million will be flooding local stations and cable stations. the clinton campaign and super pacs spending 25.5 million on ads in the final week. donald trump and outside groups unloading 18.6 million.
those numbers likely will grow. both campaigns say they're dumping millions more into battleground states. clinton has purchased $2.4 million worth of ad space in florida, 1.5 million in pennsylvania and ohio. his campaign bought almost $3 million worth of time on cable channels. spending big, no surprise, in pennsylvania and ohio. >> if you live in texas or new york or california, you have a different tv experience than if you live in a battleground state. we don't see any of these ads here at all. man, if you live in a battleground, that's all you get. we are in the home stretch right now. what are both campaigns doing, and what is the clinton campaign going to do differently? r different states where she is spending money on ads. different states she is going to visit than we thought. that's next.
six days voters head to the polls in six days. hillary clinton goes west today, she is trying to flip arizona from red to blue, also nevada. donald trump is all about florida. want to bring in senior media correspondent host, brian stelter. we are looking at the ad numbers. by the time it is said and done, almost $500 million. but we know the clinton campaign is launching big buys in colorado, michigan and new mention yo this week. the strategy, they're spending money in the final moments. >> in colorado the campaign had not spent money since july. it is a last-minute ad buy in colorado by the clinton campaign. they're investing new money in michigan, which seems to be opening up as more of a battleground state than it looked like months ago. one thing notable about this is the clinton campaign is they're trying to help down ballot candidates, a lot ofmany to spend and only a few more days to spend it.
trump campaign dismisses that. they're saying we're trying to expand the map, investing money in new states. obviously the trump campaign has to say that, they need to expand the map and surprise us in terms of the battleground states or leaning blue states. they have to win them to get to 270. >> both sides may be right here and both sides might be playing it smart. >> yeah. >> the trump campaign is absolutely right, it has to flip a blue state to win the election, so it makes sense he goes to wisconsin, michigan. and for hillary clinton, the ad spending in new mexico, that's a place they hadn't spebt at all. that's notable and, and the fact hillary clinton is going to michigan on friday, the most important commodity is a candidate's time. does it mean she is in trouble in michigan, are they playing it safe? >> is she trying to shore up her
support? you're saying no, it is nothing that simple. >> i'm saying unless they thought they needed to be there, they wouldn't be there. that being said, it may be a smart move and you want to be safe about this. so we have to watch and see if she adds trips anywhere else. >> this expand the map, in some ways on both sides they're describing the attempt. what is interesting and exciting about the election is more states are in more kinds of play. even alaska overnight, fox news taking alaska from definitely red to lean red. all of this shake up we have seen, and utah is another example. >> by the way, we won't know alaska into deep in the morning on wednesday. if it comes down to alaska, we are all -- >> i wondered what verb you would use there. i wanted to talk about how hillary clinton and the team are trying to change the narrative from the e-mails and the fbi thing back to donald trump. because they want to be talking about donald trump. his temperament, the things he said, what he believes. that's the subject of a new clinton ad that just dropped. i think it dropped yesterday. >> yeah. >> let's listen to a little

millions of supporters saying look at this tracking poll, i'm down by a point. i need you to help. trying to raise more money to run more ads. >> nothing an mates lie fear. thank you for being with us. >> nice to see you bright and early. wages are picking up speed. yes, they are. one profession is calling in bigger raises than the rest. >> i see what you did there. >> uh-huh. we will tell you what it is when we go trucking with cnn. >> grateful dead. if you quote the grateful dead i will tune back in.
