a 16-year-old boy on his way to celebrate christmas with his family dies on board the flight. the pilots tried to make an emergency landing as the teenager suffered an emergency landing. the unidentified teenager died of natural causes due to some kind of pre-existing condition. his father is in the military and stationed in washington state. an american war veteran held captive in north korea over a month waking up in his own bed. 85-year-old merill newman receiving a warm welcome in san francisco and greeted by his son and wife. north korea gave no reason why they let him go but newman said he's grateful to be home. >> it's been a great homecoming and i'm tired but ready to go with my family. thank you all for the support we
got. very much appreciate it. all smiles. newman's family and the white house calling for the release of another american, kenneth bae. he's been held in north korea for over a year now. a shaky weekend in central oklahoma. a magnitude 4.5 earthquake rattling towns near oklahoma city saturday. >> things fell off the wall. things fell off shelves. at first you don't know what's happening and then it sort of settles down and you can take inventory. >> luckily no other major damage or injuries reported. this quake comes just weeks after the two-year anniversary of the strongest earthquake ever reported in the state, a magnitude 5.6 back in 2011. 60 survivors attend an anniversary of the attack on pearl harbor. a moment of silence was observed at 7:55 a.m., the minute the
bombings began. >> it was a day of gallantry and unquestionable heroism even as it was a day of sacrifice and loss. for those who gave the last full measure of devotion that day, we feel a deep sense of sorrow for the loss of such potential. >> 2400 sailors, marines, and soldiers were killed in the attack that day. those are your news headlines. >> jess dean is here. we have a storm alert. deadly storm blasting the southern states, snow and ice heading east. icing conditions in dallas causing thousands of flight cancellations. janet dean had to cancel that marathon down there in dallas, 25,000 participants in the dallas marathon, canceled. >> a lot of things will be cancelled. this is kite an event affecting millions of people.
if you're flying, call ahead. the temperatures are frigid across the u.s. 40 degrees below average in a lot of areas. dallas, 26 degrees. the ice that is on the roadways is not going melt. it is very treacherous. people are urged to stay off the roads whmpt you factor in what it feels like on the roads, it feels like 19 in dallas, you get the picture. it is frigid across the u.s. it's not even technically winter on the calendar. we are worried about freezing rain and sleet and just a mess across the ohio river valley, the tennessee river valley up towards the mid-atlantic and the northeast. it's going to be impossible to travel in a lot of these areas. you can see the pink here on the radar. that's where we're seeing the icy mix across nashville up towards places, tennessee, kentucky, west virginia. north of that where it's below freezing, that's where we'll see the snow. there is that mixing line throughout the day today. it will creep towards the
mid-atlantic and then into the northeast. by sunday overnight we're looking at pittsburgh, dc, up towards new york an icy mix heading into the commute tomorrow. then as we go throughout the day it will finally exit. for the next 12 to 24 hours it will be very tricky on the roads and in the air and taking a look at the forecast precipitation, we could see several inches of snow and then that icy mix here south of that. that's where we'll see the heavy rain. it's going to be a trying time on the roadways. if you don't have to travel, please do not get on the roads in any of the areas where you're seeing that icy mix. >> well, thousands of californians are waking up finding out that their personal information isn't safe. they tried to sign up for obama care and the california insurance, cover california. you know at the end of the form it says, do you want us to have your marketing information so we can e-mail you and provide extra
information for you? even if you don't check that box, you don't want it, doesn't matter. that's exactly what the folks in california do. they did not check that box and their information was still given away without their consent. >> some of these people had just hopped online basically to check it out or they hopped online and found out that a plan that they already had or found one elsewhere was a better deal so they never filled out the rest of the application and their information was shared as well. now this information is e-mail addresses, phone numbers, home addresses, cover california is saying though that no personal information like social security numbers and personal income -- >> they're calling your house. >> some people aren't buying it either. how can you trust it? >> the people calling the homes are insurance companies who have been paid off in the very beginning to get behind obama care on the promise that they will have more customers and access to information exactly like this.
so the obama care website is doing what sleazy marketers do. pass on your information to other marketers like people who make the civil war chest set or whatever. right? it's like a lead list. >> it's for your own good. >> the "los angeles times" piece says they were shocked. they didn't even complete the application process and they were getting phone calls. take heart in peter levy. he says, i can imagine some people may be upset but i can see some people will be comforted and relieved to get help navigating the website. >> your average sleazy marketer knows he's a sleazy marketer operating over a space above a starbucks. these people are doing it because they feel they have a moral right to do it. you ought to be grateful they're
giving away your information to no one you've never heard of. >> it's okay for big government to do it but not mom and pop shops who have to adhere to the do not call list. >> or the do not e-mail list or canned spam act. >> it doesn't apply to the government. >> it's all because they're trying to make their deadline. that's the arg gurmt that cover california is making, too, hey, we have these deadlines for enrollment numbers and we're behind schedule so we have to do this. >> further, we talk about these electronic issues. in this story we're talking about with cover california, we know so many issues with the online and electronic versions of signing up for obama care. now a new report out, the navigator navigators, those magellan type teenagers who are led to help you through the difficult courses of obama care are being told to stop using paper, stop using the paper applications and
just begin using the electronic signup process because that deadline is quickly approaching. they're getting a little nervous that the paper is going to take too long. >> we need to get them on the same page. the representative from cms says there is plenty of time and the paper applications are just fine. which one is it? >> when i read her comment, julie batali, who is the director of the cms saying that, no, no, no, paper is fine. as you're an employee, navigator, you're hearing use electronic, then a director is saying, go ahead. use paper. >> nobody is in charge. the reason nobody is in charge is because nobody ever gets fired. there's no penalty for screwing it up. it is just a royaling sea of mediocrity although we did learn today one person may have finally lost their job. somebody resigned in the state of maryland. we have more on that in the show. you have to call your attention to an interesting report in the
new york post that pales in the personal venom that developed between president obama and charlie rangel. been in the house of representatives 44 years. it turns out they hate each other. there's no way to put a finer point on this. they despise each other. a new book has the president calling charlie rangel, quote, a hack referring to his many ethical challenges. there's no doubts charlie rangel is a hack and been caught not paying his taxes. >> it breaks it down, the sort of back and forth. it seems to be that rangle is, as they describe it, old school. he's been there for 44 years, harlem congressman. he does it old school and he has seen president obama as an up start, a beginner. he famously backed hillary clinton. and then of course when he was elected, brought na office. charlie rangel thought he would have access to the white house
as chairman of the house ways and means committee. he didn't get access. >> and who did? >> al sharpton. that's who they went with for their community outreach. they went with al sharpton over charlie rangel. charlie rangel has been pretty honest about the failures of obama care. the real difference is style. charlie rangel likes other people. he is a warm person. spend an afternoon with charlie rangel. he exsuds an affection for other human beings. that is wholly absent from president obama. name five people close to him? they don't exist. you can name 500 for charlie rangel. >> remember the picture of him on the beach in the dominican republic. he evaded taxes on the cottage. the president didn't take to his side and also you remember the
$30,000 plate funt raising event that went on in harlem, which is the district of charlie rangel. he wasn't invited. >> but you can have a conversation with charlie rangel. charlie rangel is a politician. he understands compromise. two people coming together to achieve something. the obama white house wants to lecture you on how they're morally superior, shut up and obey. one has a realistic understanding of human nature and the other thinks he's jesus. >> more on that coming up. first, this. it's not too early to talk 2016. there's already chatter about who's going to make the next run for the white house. >> it's something that i'll certainly consider. >> i'm a very able politician i'll tell you whether i'm able to persuade my wife. >> our next guest has those few names no one is talking about yet. >> remember this, it had so many of you outraged yesterday.

ceo, way rashburn, founder and owner of probably the best restaurant chain, la casina. you're always everywhere. finance chairman of the rnc. you meet with donors and voters all the time. what are republicans looking for in the 2016 campaign? >> looking for three things. somebody who can govern, lead, and win. a lot of money spent in the primaries that ended up being wasted. this time they want to focus on someone that can win. >> you said govern, a quality. that suggest someone who runs something like a state. >> also shows the current occupant of the white house can't govern. >> room for a senator right now? >> right now at the rnc we're building our grassroots
platform, structuring the party, the platform. from the senate standpoint, this he have to prove they can lead. >> show us some of the names. mark could rubio. bobby bobby jindal. the list will be long. >> it is. the candidates are crisscrossing the country. we're trying to get through the 2014 seasons. behind the scenes they are calling donors and checking guys out. >> so the democrats have indicated what they're running on. this is what debbie wasserman schultz said. >> all of our candidates are running on the provisions of obama care. >> you won't say it. >> i just said it. >> so they're going to run on
obama care. >> they'll use it as an advantage. >> do you think that's true, they're going to run on obama care? >> that's what she's saying. the candidates in the battleground states, it will be interesting to see what they have to say, louisiana, arkansas. this is one thing we agree with her on. we hope they run on obama care. >> you're praying for t. very quickly, is debbie wasserman schultz secretly working for you? >> the whole obama care debate is something we wanted to keen out there. >> thank you for coming in. a r i appreciate it. >> how the heck did this happen. >> i called my girlfriend. she thought i was crazy. i said, debby, i'm locked on a plane. >> he fell asleep and he woke up on an empty plane. what are the circumstances that allowed that to occur? and, don't call it a holiday

browse people and you can browse restaurants, you can add your favorite restaurants to your profile and your favorite cuisines and you can ask people out based on this information to a stress straunt they'll enjoy. and having food is a good time eating together. that's the basic concept. traditional dating. >> so how do you mandate that? how do you mandate that? >> a woman going out with a guy, you know, he leaves her footing the bill. does she put a bad review up there? how does the site work? >> yeah. i mean, what's kind of nice about it is we have our users pay on a per date basis so you're not paying monthly dues and not getting any results or if you're not using the site that month, you don't have to
pay. basically a man pays only when he has a confirmed date with a woman, which is great for them and for just women in general because you pay for -- you pay the service, which is cheap. it's like $5. and then you pay a deposit which pretty much ensures. >> an escrow. a dating escrow. kyle, wait a minute. so women -- were you hearing from women users, like we're just tired of being stifd with the bill? where are the good men out there these days? what are women telling you? >> yeah. i mean, i hear complaints about this especially on other dating sites where basically with ease of communication. you can meet people on the street in a big city or find people on facebook, other dating sites. with instant messaging pretty much when communication is so easy, it's easy to meet so many new people.
some people can kind of slip and not put in the effort early on in the stages of dating where it's really important. that's where you show who you are if you're a generous person and kind of give a woman the idea that you're serious about dating, that you're serious about her and relationships in general. a small gesture. >> you want to bring your a game in the beginning. real quick though, some people are saying that this is a way for women to meet sugar daddies or that it's, you know, something that's not good for sa same-sex couples. >> same-sex couples have more options on the site. totally gay friendly. when you sign up you have the choice to choose if you want to take someone out or if you want to be taken out so, yeah, that's something that we fully support. >> kyle mcginnis is the creator of hidine.com.

apparently she was forced to resign. >> why? the website has been terrible. maryland health connection.gov crashed right after it launched. maryland, one of the first states to jump right on the obama care bandwagon. the rollout sputed along over the past nine weeks. they've only enrolled about 3,000 residents in the whole state of marry land. a very, very blue state. >> roughly 700 people have been able to enroll over the last week or so. they are saying -- >> maybe she'll get her job back. >> an improvement. right. maybe it will be a paid vacation kind of things. it doesn't sound like it. there have been calls for people like kathleen sebelius to lose her job. the president has yet to hold anything accountable at the federal level. we spoke with governor mike huckabee and he says the president is out of the loop and he needs to learn how to manage. >> i think people need to realize as bad as the website
is, and it's clearly been a train wreck, it's nothing compared to what happens when people finally get into obama care and now we're learning that, for example, in states like washington state, nine times more people signed up for medicaid than to pay for insurance. good managers understand you see the whole field of play, you take the problem, you take a big problem, break it down into little problems and you assign people and task them with the responsibility of fixing it. you hold them accountable. he doesn't check up on things. he doesn't know what's happening. every times he's asked a question, i don't know. i don't know. he saw that on tv, he read it in the papers. this is the most amazing president who is unaware of what he's managing. >> meanwhile, the state of california, no one's been fired there although perhaps they should this morning after a new report in the "los angeles times" has highlighted the fact that many thousands of californians are waking up even if they went to the obama care website in california which is

list. but it's okay for the government to do so. folks in california -- from cover california, they're saying they're giving out e-mail addresses, home addresses and phone numbers. they're not giving out income and social security numbers. some people in california aren't buying it. how do we know that? >> it could be so much worse because we're the government. we have a record of every google search we do. >> it's so much fun to give out your phone number. let's put it right out on the screen because everyone wants their personal information out there. let us know what you think of that. in fact, if you live in california, you've been called by one of these insurance agents, e-mail us or go to our facebook page. some other news stories making headlines on this sunday morning. a 16-year-old boy on his way to celebrate christmas with family dies aboard a delta flight from seattle to atlanta. the unidentified teenager had a pre-existing condition but would not confirm what it was.

for all happiness. >> life is meant to be shared with somebody, isn't it? nice to share things when something really good happens or something really bad happens and all the times in between. or is this a good thing? the critics, i am the woman, hear me roar. do we not need anybody else? we live and inspire. we want to know what you think at friends@foxnews. >> i'm 44. i know a lot of people living alone. there are a lot of people in america living alone and that is a recipe for unhappiness. >> your friends, your work. >> cats are great. >> at the end of the day if you're sitting there eating a cup of yogurt by yourself, we are biologically -- there's a biological imperative to have that connection with somebody else. and the research shows that men are biologically linked to going out and hunting and gathering. that sounds like a cliche, but it's true.
psychologists back this up with a lot of research. women are biologically linked to having a nurturing, creating ability and safe, loving home. that doesn't mean the two areas don't blend. the men can prode the nurturing but the women can go out and hunt and gather. >> i don't know about the eat a cup of yogurt by yourself. i'm eating ben and jerry's full fat ice cream and pizza. >> let us know what you think about that. firstname.lastname@example.org. coming up next, the promise the president wasn't able to keep. >> no matter what you've heard, if you like your doctor or health care plan, you can keep it. >> you hope you didn't believe him because it turns out you might not be able to keep your doctor. why? because a lot of them want be out of obama care. dr. ben carson joins us with that. and always dropping a cell phone? check this out. maybe this is the answer. it's an airbag for your cell phone. do you need one of those? ♪ call me, call me any, any time

carson. thank you for joining us. does it surprise you that physicians in great numbers, at least in california, are refusing to participate in the aca? >> no, it doesn't surprise me at all. recognize that physicians are trained to make decisions based on evidence and so they're analyzing what's going on and saying, this is obviously not going to work for us. it's not going to work for anybody. you know, remember, our country, our constitution, there were five physicians involved in putting that together. so physicians in the early parts of our establishment were very involved and i think it's time for them to get involved again and bring logic back to this and not just ideology. it tends to lead us to bad places. >> incentives matter. doesn't the system now implemented pretty much guarantee that the best doctors will opt out and serve rich
people and the people at the lower end of the achievement scale, physicians, will be serving people on obama care? >> well, you know, there are probably a lot of different factors that are involved in who will go where, but, you know, the bottom line is if you're being reimbursed at a rate that doesn't even sustain you, that doesn't even pay your overhiead that doesn't make sense to be engaged. a lot of doctors are compassionate individuals are finding themselves to be doing things they never intended to do since they entered medicine. >> would you go into medicine again? you've been in it a long time. >> well, i probably would not at this moment do it. >> we're all gifted with certain talent and you need to follow
those talents and i would be looking at it more from can we get involved. do we need to submit that and get involved in a way to change things for the better, then i would, in fact, consider going into it. if i couldn't do that, no way in the world. >> that is so depressing. you wonder how many promising young potential physicians out there are making similar calculations and going into something else. that's really sad. >> you know, if we don't do something about this, it's bad. >> dr. ben carson, thank you very much for joining us. i appreciate tnchts my pleasure. there's a christmas controversy brewing. will some grinches be putting an end to the neighborhood tradition for so long. we'll tell you what it is and what they're trying to do. plus, "christmas story" do

his artwork hangs in museum amongst celebrities. james due pris thomas hasn't stopped him from a government grab. they're trying to seize the property from eminent domain to build a grocery store. james, nice to see you this morning. >> good morning. how are you? >> doing well. so you who did this all begin for you? >> very horribly. about seven, eight years ago i found out through a friend that there was plans to do something where my property was sitting. >> as i understand emmy nainent domain, it's not new. it's to bring about the government acquisition of land for public use, the idea of a public park, something that everyone has access to. your studios are very much public, students and children
are there to experience art, am i right? >> absolutely. that was the goal and the objective from the very beginning when i purchased the building. it's a roughly 8600 square feet and extends a city block. >> right. with your own money to make it what it is today, and just compensation needs to be afforded to the owner in an eminent domain case. first of all, they're going to turn it into a supermarket. i'm fromphiladelphia, there are enough supermarkets, not enough art by the way. how does a supermarket provide better public good than an art studio. >> there are a lot of problems with that. number one, it's not a food desert. meaning there is a supermarket very close by which would not make it a food desert. number two, there is still not a food chain that has been identified or a developer for
this property, for this area they want to develop for this supermarket. so my contention was, number one, how did you -- how did you seize my free and clear deed, my title to my land? the property was up for sale and we had established a market value through a realtor as we looked at comparable properties. >> so what was that price? did they low ball you? >> well, the city offered me 1/3 of the asking price that we had established for the property. >> 1/3 of the price. so that does not exactly mean just compensation as is outlined in the constitution, by the way. where does it stand now in the courts? >> we were at the second level where we filed our preliminary objections which got overruled. we went to the appeals court and
fortunately for me they found some discrepancies when they seized the property. when they seized my deed they only filed on 2/3 of the building so we're hoping legally that they will not be able to go back and recondemn the building, which was not condemnable from the very beginning. it's not a condemnable building. it's totally rehabbed. it's a unique property. it's a unique studio. this is the building of my dreams and i was very concerned with how the government could seize my deed. >> i think you're -- i think you're echoing a lot of the sentiments of our viewers this morning. you've done a great job of the community rehabbing this building. it's not an eye sore. i understand you're actually painting a murial on the side o
it. philadelphia is a city of murals. what are you doing? >> i'm getting all of my frustration of eight years, all my contempt for how they went about to take my property. i've been very depressed over the situation that somebody could not recognize the good that i've done for the community, my reputation, four decades of teaching at the university level and all the wonderful -- i actually have seven pieces in public spaces in the city of philadelphia. you can see one of my murals a block away from city hall. >> james dupree is an artist from philadelphia. hey, man, we're on your side. we wish you the best. keep us updated. one woman's ultimatum, the bike goes or i do. what would you do? this husband put them both up. the couple joins us live next.

showed her the ad after we took the pictures. >> that's pretty appealing. let's read what's in the ad. the sportser is a 2006 xl 1200. excellent condition. wife, 1959 model in excellent condition, comma, considering. >> hey, how did that make you feel, sandra, when he said considering? >> i haven't got to the bottom of that part of the statement yet. >> there are a couple other ones in here, too. were you offended by this? sportster, well maintained and it shows. see pictures. wife, high maintenance and it shows. >> that's actually a joke we've been toying with for years now. high maintenance. >> that's her. >> look at this, beautiful curls and all of that. what kind of response did you guys get for this ad? >> well, we didn't get much of a response until it went viral over the internet, and then it's
been -- we've just been -- comments and stuff we've been getting have been pretty hilarious. that's what the piece was supposed to be, was to make everybody chuckle. >> but there's no -- this can't be real. san drarks you were not born in 1959. i don't believe that for a second. flattery. is that true. >> it's true. >> my birth certificate makes that statement. >> very sweet. >> bob, so how much did sandra end up selling for? >> she hasn't gone yet. i still have the harely, too. >> you haven't sold the harley either? >> no. >> are you going to repost this ad any time soon? >> well, we're going to try to put it back up on craig's list. somebody took it down after a day or two so don't know what happened there but anyway. >> i strongly recommend ebay. good luck to both of you and the bike. >> san drarks are you going to let the bike stay or does it have snog. >> do you know what, the bike can stay. it will be among men other bikes that are already there. i've never been the one that's

hello and good morning to you. it is sunday the 8th of december, 2013. i'm anna kooiman. we start with a fox news alert. you don't want your car to end up like this one. we have the winter driving safety tips to keep you safe on the roadways. and call it the perils of big brother and big government. worried about your personal information? think it might be in danger once you type in the obama website. it turns out all your fears are justified. one state giving away your personal details without your permission. details ahead. and how in the world does this happen? >> i called my girlfriend and she thought i was crazy. i said, debby, i'm locked on a
plane. >> get help! they turned out the lights. he fell asleep on a plane, woke up on an empty plane. the story you have to be awake to believe. "fox & friends" hour four starts right now. i jumped ahead an hour. daylight savings. >> mostly i'd like to interview debby, the girlfriend, and get her reaction. >> she thought he was joking when he called. honey, i'm asleep on an airplane. >> coming up later, we're talking to you about the worst words of 2013. do you hate the word selfie or awesome sauce? we want you to send us your tweets and e-mails. let us know what you think the worst ones are. >> my vote is for awesome sauce. >> i've never heard of awesome sauce. it's two words. what does that mean? i think i'm kind of for it. >> i'm a one man jihad against
inappropriate. >> we had awesome sauce in the kitchen. >> labeled awesome sauce. we have new stories we need to get to this 16. a 16-year-old boy on his way to celebrate christmas with family dies aboard a delta flight from seattle to atlanta. officials say the unidentified teenager had some type of pre-existing condition but would not confirm what it was. one passenger said this about the experience. >> everyone was very special. very subdued. there was not a lot of chaos i would say. granted, we didn't know that it was -- until we got off the plane is when we found out what actually happened. >> an autopsy, we're told, will be performed tomorrow. get this, a pennsylvania police chief calls it the worst murder he has ever seen. two newlyweds bsted in a grizzly thrill kill. 22-year-old elliott barber and his bride of three weeks, 18-year-old miranda, lured a man to his death with a craig's list
ad. the victim was hired to be the woman's, quote, companion. authorities say the newlyweds picked up the victim in their car and then elliott barber choked him with a cord while miranda stabbed him. the body was found in an alley. the reason, the couple just wanted to kill someone together. now we have a live look at johannesburg, south africa, where visitors are gathering to honor nelson mandela today on a national day of mourning. mandela died on thursday at the age of 95. now for the first time we are hearing from mandela's family. >> the leader of the mandela household is no longer with us physically but his spirit is still with us. we have lost a great man whose greatness in our family was in the simplicity of his nature. >> president obama will travel
to south africa for a memorial on tuesday. he will be joined on air force one by president george w. bush and mrs. bush, president clinton expected to attend the memorial as well. all right. it is football time early december in college football can only mean one thing. that's championship games. to the s.e.c. championship game. auburn and missouri. remember that game last week, auburn game? this was another showdown that resembled a video game. back and forth all day. tray mason for the auburn tigers. he will finish with an s.e.c. championship record 304 yards, four touchdowns. auburn wins 59-42. they hope for a spot in the national title game. the big ten championship game where ohio state was taking on michigan state. connor cook had a fantastic day. braxton miller made sure it was a game by making plenty of big runs including a 48-yard scramble. michigan state would hold on to win 34-24.
and like many of us, we're sad ohio state coach urban meyer. >> extreme weather alert. >> frigid temperatures, snow and ice. the storm is headed to the east. over 1,000 cancellations today across the united states. the majority of the cancellations in and out of the dallas fort worth airport. janice is joining us live to tell us about this. >> have you ever driven on black ice? >> and fish tailing. >> we'll see more of that unfortunately. dallas, you've seen it over the last 48 hours. that will continue. the temperatures are still freezing. so any of that ice will remain there. people are urged to stay off the
roadways. we have the low pressure out of the southeast. as the moisture falls south ward it freezes on contact on the roadways. power lines, we could certainly see a lot of power outages in the areas you see in pinks and purples. freezing rain warnings also in some of these areas. going to be really dangerous. call ahead certainly if you're traveling by air. traveling on the roadways, again, if you can stay off the roads, that's probably the best advice. as you can see, we're already seeing the pink on the screen. mess of freezing rain and/or sleet. ohio valley, tennessee, kentucky. driving will be very messy from d.c. all the way up to boston. i-81 is going to be very, very icy. again, stay off the roads. good thing it's a sunday. maybe people won't be traveling. but it is going to continue into monday unfortunately.
keep alert. >> take it from me who had a head-on collision with a mack truck traveling on ice. do not get out there and drive. >> oh, my gosh, that's terrible. >> horrible story the past few days. a mother losing her 5-year-old child because she decided to drive. horrible. thank you, janice. the past couple of weeks we've brought you concerns, wide concerns about whether or not obama care is safe. will it be someplace you can leave your personal information knowing it's not going to be disseminated to other people. we've had a lot of concerns. the white house is responding consistently. that's paranoid talk. of course you can trust obama care. in the state of california you can't. the obama care exchanges have been passing out personal information to insurance companies which then market that information using that information, they market their services. >> these aren't even people that signed up. these are people that took a cursory glance, maybe filled out part of an application.
>> they're getting phone calls from insurance companies saying, hey, we understand you're looking for insurance. how can we be of assistance. would you like to pay us? peter levy, covered california, listen to this quote, see if you are comforted by this. he's using comforting words. he said i can imagine some people may be upset, but i can see a lot of people will be comforted and relieved at getting the help that they need by navigating a confusing process. >> and the reason they're saying they're doing this is because, of course, they're lined on their enrollment deadlines that they're trying to meet. also they're saying that we're not giving out any personal information like social security information, health information, your income, things like that, all it is is your e-mail address, your telephone number and your home address which that seems personal enough. people are going, wait a minute. how do we know -- how can we really trust that the rest of our information isn't getting leaked either? >> so, let's see, the explanations are we had to do
it. it's for the greater good. and trust us. if they'll give your personal information to insurance companies, why won't they give it to someone selling time shares in orlando or people hawking the war chests or the scooter store. >> great point. that's what they're doing. >> further, how can you trust -- i know from a tech side of things, you never open an e-mail from a person that you don't know and click on a link. how do you know this person is who they say are. after all, it is rampant. how can you trust these guys? now it could even get worse because we're moving away from paper. in fact, the navigators out there trying to help you navigate through the entire process are being told because of the deadline we were talking about is quickly approaching, december 23rd, get rid of the paper. just use electronic applications because they take too longs. paper takes too long to process. >> they're worried it won't get
through. we heard from a spokesperson for cms who said, no, we have plenty of time for paper applications. guys, get on the same page and figure out what we're doing with it. >> yeah. sad thing to report out of the new york post about the rivalry and the tension and what the paper describes as hate between the president, barack obama, and charlie rangel, congressman from harlem who's occupied the seat for the last 44 years. they despise each other. >> remember this counter photo dealing with his condo. this actually goes back a number of years where the president didn't come to charlie rangel's defense a couple of times, this being one of them, where he says he hopes he retires with dignity during that whole debacle. he hasn't retired. the feud goes back years and years before that when he was running for president in 2008. charlie rangel famously supported hillary clinton. that infused some bad blood into the process. we hear the sort of back and forth. charlie rangel wanted access to the president and white house.
as chairman of the house ways and means committee he's one of the most prominent black leaders in america. >> one of the most powerful people in america. i'm not defending charlie rangel's ethics, that's impossible. i will say this. here's the key difference between them. charlie rangel likes other people. he don't consider themselves omni potent, he listening to people. he has a natural affection for other human beings. he's not cold, remote, distant and imperious like the other person in this fractured relation. >> ""the new york post"" article is saying that they hate one another. not just that they have different political differences or charlie rangel speaking out against the irs or the signature legislation of president obama, obama care. this relationship is so fractured -- >> it's young. >> what's the reason behind this? there are people who didn't back president obama in 2008 and went
to the hillary clinton side who the president is close with now. what is it? a lot of it is stylistically speaking. he's very old school and president obama very much isn't. rangle says you should respect me, 44 years or something -- >> yeah, but charlie rangel has tons of friends who don't agree with him. go to washington. ask around. other than valerie jarrett, how many people can say, i'm close personal friends with president obama? quick math, zero. charlie rangel, hundreds of friends. i'm not defending his ethics, but i'm just saying it's interesting. coming up here on the show, the white house hiding the facts about the health care law. are they about to lose their loyal friends? chris wallace is here. move over robin thicke. miley cyrus has a new twerking partner. let the twerking commence.
leaking out some positive news about the health care law while holding out negative stories. even the most negative supporters perturbed. is the president in danger of isolating his allies in the mainstream media? >> joining us is chris wallace zbl go. >> good to see you. >> your thoughts. we want this. we're trying to get the white house logs, the visitor logs as
peter schweitzer was reporting. do they run the risk of isolation? >> yeah. i think that worm has already turned. ever since october 1st if you've been watching any of the white house briefings, the mainstream media has been pretty tough on jay carney and this administration because, look, you can't avoid it. the fact is that the rollout of obama care has been a mess. the website was a disaster when it first came out. the promise, if you like your plan, you can keep your plan was clearly broken. and, you know, it's just too impossible to ignore. so, as i say, i think that horse is already out of the barn. >> so how are congressional democrats feeling this morning? are they still feeling kind of panicky as they have been the last couple of months about obama care? do they think things are getting better? >> well, clearly they are getting better. better is a relative word. the website is working a lot
better in december than it was in october or november. i can't imagine that they're filled with great confidence about it, tuck er. on the other hand, all of these people in the senate were passed by a single vote. each one of those democrats up for re-election last year was a key, a single vote that decided whether or not obama care became a law or went down. they're kind of ono bomb ma care. at this point the strategy seems to be to talk about the successes. there are some, clearly. uninsured people are getting insured. people are getting extra benefits. you know, accentuate the positive and eliminate the negative. >> what about this? the administration is supposed to be the most transparent one ever yet somehow in the logs the president met one on one 277 times with cabinet members but never one on one with kathleen sebelius. is this a transparency issue or is this a management issue? if he really didn't meet with her one on one, what kind of
damage does that do? if he did meet with her one on one but didn't record it and hasn't been putting it out there, what kind of damage does that do? >> well, it's a good question. jay carney on friday was saying, look, that's the public log. it doesn't represent every meeting there was. you know, i suppose it really doesn't matter if the president was meeting with kathleen sebelius and one of her aids was in the room, that's not one on one but that's still a meeting. clearly, transparency is an issue. i think there was a better example of it this week when the administration announced that yes, in fact, the president has spent time with his uncle who's had some immigration problems. they said before that he had never met with them. it turned out that when he first went to harvard law school he stayed at his home for a couple of weeks. they said, well, why did you tell us before that he hadn't and now you tell us he has? the answer was, well, we didn't ask him before. it's an odd way to get information. >> you have been in that anchor seat for a decade, chris.
congratulations. your anniversary is coming up. >> thank you. it's been the dream job of my career. look at that. that's depressing. ronald regan used to say seeing himself in old movies was like seeing a son he never knew he had. >> chris, i have to say something to you, a compliment. look at the head of hair you have, then and now. you've got a good head of hair, mister. >> the only thing out of date there is the suit. >> thank you. it's all mine. i appreciate that, khanna. >> on chris wallace's show, they'll be remembering ten years. who else is coming up? >> we'll be talking to rand paul not only about obama care but on wednesday he went to detroit talking about freedom zones like jack kemps enterprise zones. we'll talk to one of the architects of obama care, dr. ezekiel ee manuel. we'll talk to him about where it is now.
and then we'll speak with p pik botha. he helped get mandela released. remarkable personal stories you've never heard. >> outstanding. thanks a lot, chris. >> more "fox & friends" in two minutes. stay with us. [ eeping ] [ male announcer ] you hear that? that's the sound of car insunce companies these days. here a cheap, there a cheap. everywhere a cheap... you get it. so what if instead ofjust a cheachoice, you could make a smart choice? like esurance for example they were born online and built to save people money
in the mining community and beyond, the subtle joke here. people are going to feel really stupid when i do really well. >> yes, they are. it's the reality show that takes you inside the world of gold mining only the precious metal isn't found in the ground, it's found in the most unlikely place, at the bottom of the frigid baring sea. >> the season may be tough for the first female dredge owner in
nome, alaska. here to give us a sneak peak at the new season of "bearing z gold" emily riedel. >> when people call you a gold digger, you don't take offense. >> not at all. >> we were talking in the commercial break. i've never met someone who seems as normal and grounded as you. >> appearances can be deceiving. >> how did you wind up in the gold digging business? >> actually, i went to nome originally to raise funds for pursuing on perfect ra abroad. >> it was on perfect ra or gold drudging? >> now it's a combination of both. it was originally for on perfect ra. i can't stand a 9 to 5 job. seemed like gold mining was a good idea at the time. i went up there and tried to raise enough money. it didn't happen the first season, still working on it. >> when you're out there, explain to us. you go out on a boat and you have to dig through ice to find gold, is that right? >> in the summer season it's on the water on a boat.
i usually vary -- very precarious. in the winter it's drilling under five feet of ice and diving under five feet of ice. >> so clearly the video we're showing is summer because you're in a tank top. how terrible are the conditions in the winter? >> in the winter it's infinitely harder to survive and mine. you have to battle the conditions. it's about negative 30 wind chill and you are essentially walking around on the ice, you know, exposed all day drilling and trying to, you know, lower your engines and your equipment under the ice and make money. >> do you make money? >> it's a hit or a miss. >> does one make money? for our viewers thinking i should drop my plans to be an on perfect ra star and go dredge gold in alaska, will they make money if they do that? >> i think everybody should give it a try. you can make money. it's a gamble. it's a game. you either fail miserably. there's a lot of failure and there are sometimes cases of mass success. >> what about being in a mail
dominated profession, has it been difficult for you? >> it has, but i think any woman in a male dominated profession doesn't go about thinking of it that way. we think we have a job to do, we're going to get it done. we love what we do. you work in television. you know this. we love what we do. we have these goals and we're going to work towards them. i don't go about thinking i'm a woman, this is hard. i go about thinking, i want to do an awesome job at this. >> i'm a woman, hear me dredge. >> i'm a woman hear me sing opera. >> that gets you through. can you share a little bit with us? >> absolutely. all right. here it goes. ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪

tireless work. "the washington post" reports she was gently shoved out because of the ineptitude of the roll out in maryland. this is the only person to lose his or her job so far because of the debacle of obama care. >> first nine weeks they only had 3,000 residents enroll. they said there have been a few improvements over the last week they had 700 people enroll. that was a big improvement. of course this san issue we've been talking about for a long time. does a helped need to roll. at the moment president obama hasn't fired anybody, held anybody responsible. is this really a symbol of the management style of the president, governor mike huckabee weighing in. >> i think people need to realize as bad as the website is and it's clearly been a train wreck it's nothing compared to what happens when people finally get into obama care and now we're learning that, for
example, in states like washington state nine times more people signed up for medicaid than to pay for insurance. good managers understand you see the whole field of play, you take the problem, you take a big problem break it down into little problems, you assign people and task them with the responsibility of fixing it and hold them accountable. you check on them constantly. he doesn't check up on things. he done know what's happening. every time he is asked a question his answer and the administration i don't know. he found out about it when he read it in the papers or saw it on tv. this is the most amazing president of who is unaware of what he's managing. >> the governor talking about some state's problems. out in california if you go to the website and don't even complete the application, you just fill out a portion of it, you may be contacted by an insurance agent that says hey we got wind you might want to sign up for obama care. covered california is the website you're looking at.
that's the california health exchange. gave out the names of tens of thousands of folks without their consent. >> so like sleazy retailers every where, the state of california is operating a side business closed from public view in passing out personal information. if you get a call offering you a time share in orlando, maybe your information was passed on by the government when you tried to sign up for obama care. >> when telemarketers have to abide by the do-not-call or do not e-mail list and terms of service agreements and the opt-out and all of that. but we're hearing from the executive director of covered california peter lee. he says i can imagine people may be upset. but i can see a lot of people will be comforted and relieved at getting the help they need to navigate a confusing process. >> let me give him the benefit of the doubt. maybe he's right. maybe there are some people comforted by the fact they
couldn't figure out how comply dated website is and they didn't know what they were doing and when their medical information wasn't going into the database and they get a phone call to alleviate some of the pain. maybe i'm being too cynical. >> exactly. the federal government will have information on you like your weight, your medical history. let's say you're 40 pound overweight. what will prevent the state from passing on that information to insulin makers so you get solicited at home for diabetes drugs. >> your personal information, your phone number is out there. >> california is saying it's your phone number, earn mail address and home address. they are saying your income, social security things like that are not being put out there. how do you know? >> in the first 2 1/2 months they are doing this. this will go on forever. you think it won't get worse. >> how do you know that the person calling you is not fraudulent? how now? by the way i'm with this insurance company. really?
there's no fraud out there i'm sure. let us know, by the way we asked earlier in the last hour, from california have you received any of these phone calls. e-mail us. >> six minutes after the hour. some other stories make headlines. 16-year-old boy on his way to celebrate christmas with family dies on board a flight. the unidentified teenager had some type of pre-existing condition but would not confirm what it was. an autopsy will be performed tomorrow. two newlyweds busted in a grizzly thrill kill. cops say 22-year-old elliot barber and his bride of three weeks lured a man to his death with a craigslist ad. the victim was hired to be the woman's quote companion. authorities say the newlyweds picked up the victim in their car. elliot barber choked him with a cord while miranda stands him. the body was found in an
alleyway. the couple did this just because they wanted to kill someone together. here's one you can smile one. america's favorite duck huntsers are giving back. the boys from duck dynasty healed a benefit auction to benefit the wounded warriors project. the winning bid was $20,110. the patriarch symbolized the call himself and finished with it an autograph. all right. it's time now for janice dean who is over there in the "weather center." extreme weather alert. deadly winter storm blasting the central states and western states. >> right now in d.c. it's snowing. it looks beautiful there. tucker, i know you can attest to this. when it snows in d.c. people don't know what to do. >> they do. they jam safeway, stockpiling bottled water.
>> they will get snow now and change over to freezing rain and/or sleet. it's going to be a nasty day especially if you live all up and down the i-81 corridor. because that's where we're getting that freezing mixture. on the radar we got cloudy skies in nashville but greensboro is reporting freezing rain and light snow in d.c. it looks beautiful. looking at our forecast, as you can see that pink on the map looks pretty but that's the freezing rain and/or sleet we'll see throughout the day today as we move further out in time. north of that around pittsburgh heavy snow, moving into new york we could see some snow around 4:00 p.m. sunday but then change over to rain tomorrow. so basically if you live all up and down the i-95 corridor pay close attention to your local weather forecast and don't travel if you don't have to. >> janice, have you ever been stuck at an airplane after they shut up the lights and everyone went home. >> not that i can recall. >> you have a leg up on this one man who this happened to him.
he fell asleep on an airplane. they shut off the lights. they went home. the crew went home. they locked the airplane. and went home. that's when this happened. listen. i called my girlfriend she thought i was crazy. i said debbie i'm locked on a plane. >> debbie was confused when he said that but it turns out he wasn't crazy at all. he was left there. like being left on the operating table. wake up and all the doctors and nurses are gone, where did everyone go. >> this is at a big airport. in houston. 40 million people apparently went through this international airport last year. not some small airport. some small little tiny plane. doesn't sound like. he was headed from louisiana to california making a layover stop there. >> actually that's a good point. >> this to me is where those types of things happen. the craziest busiest things happen. the details get overlooked. the small airport where everyone knows everyone doesn't happen.
>> in pierce, south dakota this wouldn't happen. >> in helena, montana this wouldn't happen. how does a guy when they are cleaning the plane they don't see a guy lying there. >> some of the context here or some of the details are missing from this story. we don't know where on the plane was sleeping. possible he could be sleeping under the seat. doesn't know his interaction with cocktails. >> he says they gave me a little goodie bag which was like dental flogs, toothbrush and toot paste, keep quiet. >> that's the airline version of a payoff. here's a pay off. >> he goes $250 voucher for a hotel. >> everybody is talking about this on our facebook. this came from billy. >> where is the weirdest place you ever fell asleep. billy responded. i've done it in the dentist's chair while he worked on me.
>> i fell asleep getting a hair cut. >> me too. >> gerry said my husband took me to a playoff basketball game between alabama and kentucky. you guessed it, i went to sleep during a playoff game. >> is this like a meeting of the narcolepsy network. our viewers, i feel so empowered to know there are others who pass out. >> i'm a light sleeper. i envy all of you. >> i'm a light sleeper. >> once his biggest supporters. new numbers show hispanics have abandoned the president. another casualty of obama care or are there other reasons. >> one woman's ultimatum. the bike goes or i do. what would do you. both have been put up for sale. that story next.
welcome back. they've been some of the president's strongest and most consistent supporters but a new gallup poll over the past year the president's approval rating among hispanic voters has dropped to 52%. that's down 23 points from the last presidential election. what happened and will the president be able to win back their support? joining us now is mr. ortega. my sense is a lot of this drop in the president's approval among hispanic voters has his inability to get until integration bill through the congress. do you think that's right? >> in large part. but also i think we have to look at the economy and considering that the economy has not been favorable to hispanics.
i thought ted cruz had it right if you were in a private plane a few years ago still probably flying a private plane. but if you're in the bottom running of the economic lad dtt you're struggling. this is why approval ratings for hispanics is dropping. they are running out of patience with the president. >> the economy was as bad during the last presidential election. >> you're right. look just this weekend, evidently now the white house is talking hispanic groups and saying spanish language website is up and running and so this s-you know, six, seven weeks out after the deadline they had set for themselves. absolutely. obama care has not been good for hispanics and think about states like california, tucker. states like florida which are dropping millions of people, a lot of americans are losing their health care insurance. those two states have a big hispanic population.
>> my impression of the white house strategy on winning back hispanics support has been always to say look at the republicans, they hate you. you got to continue to be the strategy. >> yeah. i think so. even on immigration, tucker. hispanics are just -- are just not buying this line any more that progress is not being made on immigration because of republicans. just think about how the president, from the very beginning said look if i don't get 100% on immigration i want nothing. for a lot of hispanics they are questioning that. why just a few weeks ago the president finally said you know what? to do this step by step on immigration and not try to do one big bill given the fact that obama care has been such a disaster in terms of doing this all in one big piece. >> getting what you want is difficult. thank you for joining us this morning. >> thanks, tucker. >> next on the run down, no bridge, no problem. just zip line your car across. take a guess which country this

our foxnews.com website. >> she said there's no way to be a wife, mother and full time employee and still create balance. but can you have balance by depending on a husband that works full time and year round. >> that's sparking a ton of controversy. is there any truth to what the author is saying. let's ask the writer behind this provocative piece. nice to see you this morning, suzanne. >> thanks for having me. >> thanks for writing this piece because i think these things are difficult to talk about. we need have a broader conversation about this idea around what we direct our family. the '60s and '70s, you don't need to depend on a husband. go out there and do it yourself. >> i appreciate your saying that. it's a conversation that we don't have and need to have. there's more to life outside of work. and i think that's something that we don't hear a lot about, because women especially are
geared towards career, career, career. work, work, work and they spend for years for this one part of their lives and it often takes some years and some maturity and moving on before you realize, i think there's more to life besides work. of course for most people that includes getting married and having a family, and, you know, running a home and having friendships and exercise and shopping and all kinds of things that women want to do that are going to feel strapped that they can't do if they are working full time year round. so i'm saying in this article, real balance is about having a little bit of this, a little bit of that in your life and the best way of doing that, of course, is to have flexibility in your job or working part time which is what the research article i was referring to in that article was about. >> i'm confused why this controversial. if i got up and said and it's true i rely completely on my wife. i would never be happy, balanced
or successful if i western married to my wife. people think that's great. if a woman gets up and says that about her husband somehow people think she's weak. >> i understand it. that's what i do. write about this stuff. the backlash is severe. it's really about a movement in this country that believes that the idea of depending on a man or relying on a man is somehow a bad thing and we've been hearing it really for decades that women don't need men and that's simply for most women not the case. it may feel that way when you're in your 20s but it won't feel that way down the road. the concern is you're setting up a pattern for your life that isn't going to work very well for you with that attitude. so i want to undo that attitude and have it be a real positive thing to be married and to depend on a man to some degree just as he depends on you. ate two way thing. that's okay. that's not a bad thing. also to accept that biology
matters. women and men are different. we need to embrace those differences without thinking that means somebody is weak or less than. it's not about that. >> some critics have said it's a little bit too broad to say men are this way and women are that way. do i respect this article that you've written and i want some words of wisdom. i fit into that category perfectly. i'm single. i'm 29 years old. i'm very career oriented. what's your advice in just a couple of sentences. >> my advice is as the years go on and you fine you do want to get married and settle down to understand that time will be your greatest enemy not your husband, not men, not the government, not your employers, it's time. there's just not enough time in a day to do everything. if you learn to embrace that side of yourself that doesn't -- that isn't about work, in other words the nurturing side, the motherhood, all of that it's okay to let your husband bring home that full time income so that you can have more of a balanced life and that we should
be thanking men for this not saying they are in our way or not doing enough. >> susan, thanks. >> we appreciate it. thank you for writing this piece. go to foxnews.com. there's not one thing in here i disagreed with. >> thank you for having me. >> coming up next love may be a battlefield but this one takes it to a whole new level. a commit, ninjas, batman, one wedding ceremony getting the comic book treatment. >> then for our nation's heroes holidays are the hardest times to be away from family. up next heart warming story. one shipping company going out of its way to give our troops a little taste of home. i need you. i feel so alone.
surprising visitors at the smithsonian's national air and space museum in washington with a holiday flash mob of the best kind. >> how do you surprise someone with a tuba? >> any of the wood winds too. pretty obvious. >> got a tuba in your pants. it began with a single celloist walking in. then they were joined by 120 performers. look at that. let's go outside to anna who is out in the cold with a very special treat for our troops. >> i'm getting chills from this story and this as well. being away from their families during the holidays can be hard for many of our troops overseas but one company has been spreading holiday cheer by donating christmas trees to our soldiers serving abroad. joining us now is the senior director for dhl express. and one of the recipients of the christmas trees and joe with the
nursery. tell me how this all got started back in 2004 when a mom came to the nursery and said i want to send my son in iraq a encroachment. >> that's what happened. about ten years ago mother came in i want to give a christmas tree to my son. the problem was her son was over in iraq. we partnered up with the nursery and they donated the tree and we donated the logistic service and helped to get it over to iraq. >> lieutenant sullivan you received two christmas trees, right? >> we received a couple thousand christmas trees and got them out the all the soldiers. one shipment came on christmas eve in 2006 and we decorated up a truck and dropped off light, bulb, donated by again rows people and shipped out by dhl and all organized by dhl. >> what's it like getting these christmas trees? you probably don't smell pine very often in iraq and
afghanistan. >> no, you don't. when you get the trees it brings new to that holiday -- it brings you back home and the smell of the trees, you know, no trees out in the desert. just brings home back. >> joe, knowing that you've been able to do this for thousands of our men and women serving our country, fighting for our freedom, how does that make you feel to be able to do it year after year. >> all the emotions come out. happy we can do this for everyone who serves. proud to be an american. sad. you meet a lot of people that are away from their families. all the emotion come out. >> luke, tell me what else it is you send. >> not just christmas trees. the lights. ornaments. holiday cards and christmas cards. everything. thousands of items sent over to the troops. dhl is glad to do it. >> we got our men and women serving in uniform and i just want to let you say hello and

saying the legendary evangelist's health is on the decline. graham celebrated his 95th birthday in november. he was hospitalized a short time later for respiratory problems. >> after michigan's win over ohio state, students burned cars. social media reports tear gas was used in addition. firefighters were kept busy all night responding to fires in several student housing areas. >> smell the couch from here. >> flame retardant. >> it's me or the harly davidson the ultimatum gasandy gave to h
husband. >> we didn't get much of a response until it went over the internet and then it's been -- comments and stuff we've been getting have been hilarious. that's what the piece was supposed to be was to make everybody chuckle. >> sandra now says bob can keep the harley after all. love is a battlefield but this is ridiculous. >> should anyone here present know of any reason that this couple should not be joined in holy matrimony speak now or forever hold your peace. >> i object. >> this is ridiculous. i say it's awesome. iranman, batman, ninjas all show up to a wedding. game developer adam bond gives his wedding ceremony the comic
book treatment. spoiler alert he gets the girl. guest-no idea what they were going to. the video has gone silver and has over 800,000 views. that's awesome. >> i don't know if married life can top that. it may be all downhill from here. >> unless iranman shows up. >> janice dean waits for us outside with an update on an dramatic day in weather. >> we have a dangerous mix of sleet, freezing rain, snow, all moving into the ohio river valley, up towards the mid-atlantic and the northeast. taking a look at what we're dealing with over the next several hours. look at d.c. by this afternoon. freezing rain and/or sleet. mainly snow across new york and one of the computer models i have to mention is giving new york a little bit more snow than we originally had anticipated. so just keep that in mind. it's going to be a messy commute on sunday, even into monday's commute.
really, really nasty especially across the i-95 corridor and the i-81. keep in mind if you don't have to travel don't travel. there's your forecast precipitation. you can see where the opinions, we'll see freezing rain and/or sleet. real quick what's your favorite tv show? >> "fox & friends" weekend. >> yeah. that's awesome. back inside. >> "fox & friends" weekend. >> they are from the south. >> cutback to janice in a moment you'll see her paying them cash. >> thank you, janice. remember hardball host chris matthews throwing the president soft balls saying republicans don't want minorities to vote. well howard kerts has the media buzz on that. >> and the inside look at the competitive and barack obama j filled world of women in the rodeo circuit. they will show us how to ride a bull. i'll be out there next. so ally bank has a raise your rate cd

now for some quick headlineheadline headlines. $334 million could buy a nice christmas present. a holiday parade ends with a bang when a float bursts into flames. it happened when the float's generator caught fire. firefighters nearby also part of the parade and rushed in to put out the blaze. >> well, chris matthews plays hardball with his guests but when it comes to barack obama he played at the pee-wee level. >> 36 states right now led by republican legislators have been trying to make it difficult for
minority people to vote especially in big cities and older people. everybody knows the game. republicans often admit the game to deny people the vote. how can -- what's your reaction? >> was this interview hard hitting or more soft pitching. here to join in is howard kertz. nothing like asking a question where you give the president the answers. >> i expected chris matthews to deliver a sympathetic friendly interview with president obama. i wouldn't even say he was pitching soft balls i describe it as whiffle ball. that question was a twitter question in which he was delivering some democratic talking points on voter suppression. mostly they are vague, tell us how you feel. why don't people have faith in your honesty. this is a guy who loves to interrupt his guests. he let the president go on and on.
>> he doesn't let you get a sentence out half the time. so here are two more questions that we compiled here from chris matthews interview with president obama. watch. >> there's some resistance out there among young people, seen it in the polls to enrolling in the exchanges and get involved in taking responsibility for their health care. what's your argument? your remarks on economic justice, to me is a roman catholic was so resonate what the holy father francis has been saying. talk about that common judeo clinton or even further muslim background we have a social responsibility, moral responsibility to look at people who haven't made it in this country. >> he was asking those questions. do you think he missed a lot of opportunities? >> well he miss ad lot of opportunities to follow up or press the president on any of his answers. that opening question about tell the young people in this audience at american university in washington why they should sign up for obama care you wouldn't have gotten the impression that the roll out has
been a mess. there was one semiaggressive question about the president's management style with regard to health care. to cover himself chris matthews knowing the world was watching would have asked a couple of tough sounding questions to show he was capable of playing hardball. matthews was playing to the msnbc base and his base. he said the people who watch me are your loyalists. that's how the interview was conducted. >> no questions about anybody being fired over obama care or over benghazi. do you think this will help chris matthews credibility or water under the bridge? >> people who watch his show thought it was a great interview. people who like barack obama enjoyed the interview. i don't think it helped the president. here you have him going to the home team, msnbc, had a bunch of msnbc pun departments over at the white house along withes fox's juan williams. he didn't make much news.
you don't make news unless you hit major league pitching and we didn't see much of that. more like sand lot ball. >> more commentary from howard kertz. tune in at 11:00 a.m. get to see howard's interview with the man who broke the nsa scandal, glenn greenwald. howard kurtz great to see you. >> we have an inside look at women inside the rodeo. they will show anna how to ride a bull. what? who put that in. ask me what it's like

rodeo's not just for cowboys. i race with some of the most notorious women on the circuit. >> i'm telling you, you're all the same deep down inside. >> we get a bad rap because they think we're just out there trying to look pretty. we're like outlaws. >> do we have your attention yet? >> that was an inside look at the competitive and drama-filled world of women's pro rodeo circuit. a new a&e series follows the biggest names in the barrel circuit. >> he came out just for this. some tricks will be shown to us by the stars. good morning, ladies. >> good morning. >> i didn't realize how competitive this is. is it really that competitive? >> it's extremely competitive. we win and lose by hundreds and ten thousands of a second. that sucks when you drive that far to get to rodeos and you lose by that, it's painful.
>> do you ever get scared, injured? >> the only injury i have had is hitting the barrel, which is also a five-second penalty. so that's very painful and costly. >> what are some tiricks and tips? tucker was thinking about a career change. if he was thinking -- >> some people say it's too late, but i don't think it is. >> i started riding at a later age. >> you get on the bull or you want me to do it right here? >> you want me to rope the bull here? >> sure. >> i have this cactus rope. nice rope, you'll take out a loop. we're roping. >> rope the bull. >> i got it backwards. that's not the good thing. >> good job. >> awesome. >> can i try it? >> yeah. come over here. okay, so coil it up. >> you're okay. >> coil it. put this in your left hand. hold it just like i am. >> okay. >> like this.
>> got to hold the other end. >> slide your hand down, put the coil there. now grab it again. we're going to do a loop. >> we're building a loop. >> ready? >> then you're going to swing it and throw it. >> oh! almost roped the cameraman. >> holy smokes. >> okay, well done. >> well done. >> with that little loop, i would have caught a new york city rat. everyone gets a trophy. >> awesome. are you kidding? >> you can do it. >> of course, i can do it. >> i'm just throwing it. >> he's saving himself for the ride. >> is she going on? >> all right. >> let's see if this works. >> typically, typically -- >> do you typically do it in a fur coat? >> always.
>> i love the style. >> we ride bulls. grab the bull by the horns. you go whoo! aatually, we don't ride bulls. we ride horses, and we're going 40 miles per hour. bulls can't go 40 miles per hour, but we wanted to bring the bull in the spirit of what we do. >> all right, we're going to turn it up pretty hard now. really moving now. how are you managing to stay on? >> you know, when you're riding the horses, you want to ride with your knees and hang on, but the bull riders, they need to keep spurring and spurring. they get points for spurring. bulls get 50, the rider gets 50. they're racing. we circle three barrels in a clover-leaf pattern. the fastest time wins. we do it arena, arena. arena. >> can anna try to hop on? >> absolutely. >> all right, anna. >> okay, you get on.
hang on with your knees. >> eight seconds to victory. >> i don't have the fur coat. >> it's a lot like soul cycle. >> hang on with your knees. >> let it rip. >> don't tell them that. let it spin. go. >> come on. that's nothing. >> put one hand in the air. >> now you can let it go. >> there you go. you're doing good. hang on. >> my hands are so -- >> awesome. all right. whoa. >> you did it. you're on. you're brave. >> we'll have more in moments. more anna on bullback. >> crazy. >> did we name the bull? >> now she's getting crazy. farmer: hello, i'm an idaho potato farmer.
>> anna on a mechanical bull right behind us. >> come on. here we go. >> donald trump on tomorrow's show, dick cheney, and mario lopez. we'll see you, everyone. >> that's a show. and a fox extreme weather alert this morning. a deadly winter storm blasting western and southern states with frigid temperatures, snow, rain, sleet, and ice. you name it, they're getting it. the cold weather chaos. leaving icy roads and power outages. stretching from texas to the rockies, temperatures expected to reach only about 10 degrees today. in much of the midwest. the storms also causing massive flight cancellations across our country, as travel conditions are worsening by the hour, both in the air and on the roads. now, the storm is moving east. it's causing big problems all along the way, and we're going to bring you a full
