on the eve of the bear hunt aches florida man is attacked by a bear. that happened in east point, florida, 70 miles south of tallahassee. the bear attacked a man last night near a motel. he is expected to be okay.
1:14 pm
florida officials declared open season on bears in that state. for the first time they have allowed the bear hunt to go forward in decades. it is meant to decrease the black bear population they say has been booming. activists contend they should work on trash management instead in order to roux the encounters between people and bears. live from new york, it's donald trump. the presidential candidate is set to host "saturday night live" next weekend. november 7th, in fact. he won't be the first candidate to appear on the show or even to host it. but trump taking center stage does open nbc up to potential trouble. from the ftc's equal opportunity clause. that mandates stations to equal airtime and basically it has to offer to all political candidates. should "snl" be word about this? we have a defense attorney and former prosecutor. and misty maris is a trial
1:15 pm
attorney. equal time is equal time. hillary clinton, as we know, recently did a skit. she got three minutes and a few spare is seconds. he will be hosting the show, which will gain him 22 minutes of free advertising. if you're a legitimate candidate, can you fight this? >> you can. you can request equal airtime. you can go to an nbc affiliate station saying is i want the same 22 minutes that trump received. and all you have to do is show you're a legitimate candidate in that state. they have to put you on. they lose complete control over their programming. >> there is an actual contest, but it is not being contested. >> right. >> we are talking long-time candidate. and a law professor sent a letter demanding an equal opportunity under the law stating cancelled dates are allowed to use a broadcast station, that other candidates
1:16 pm
be allowed the same opportunity. but it does not apply to him because he is not a legitimate candidate. >> this is an fcc rule, not an election rule. there is not a lot of case law defining what a legitimate case law is. he is getting publicity. if chris christie, marco rubio, some of the republican candidates are sick and tired of donald trump getting free advertising, 23 minutes on saturday night live, if they want to, they can invoke the rule. >> remember vice presidential candidate sarah palin. and reverend al sharpton in 2003.
1:17 pm
what if legitimate candidates like ted cruz, car lee fiorina come out and say we want equal time. >> they will get it in the local affiliate stations where they have a connection to that state. it's going to happen. they'll be able to get that time. they will be able to speak their mind for 22 unfettered minutes. >> they don't want to host. they just want equal time. not everybody wants to be on saturday night live. but they want equal time. if they were to be pressured to in court, all 15 candidates, that's five hours of television. is nbc willing to take that risk? >> they obviously are. you see how much ratings that donald trump brings to any network he goes o. the first person to tell you how much he increases their ratings is donald trump. >> right.
1:18 pm
>> they will make millions of dollars. they will be able to ratchet up ad sales, double or triple what they do. nbc is willing to take a chance. the interesting fact is we are two weeks out. the only person to bring it up is the unknown democratic law professor. why apart the candidates exercising their right of time? >> it is not like they haven't talked to the higher ups. it's they know this will get the ratings. it will bring "saturday night live" to a whole other level in that time slot. there's no way it hasn't been considered. this is really going to be a big deal. we know from the way the presidential race has been unfolding. >> right. >> donald trump is all over the place. and it's going to bring in more viewers. >> not only is this law professor contesting this, but there are other groups protesting against nbc. nbc is going back on what it had
1:19 pm
originally intended. they didn't want to give any airtime because of his remarks on hispanics. they pulled miss universe. now all of a sudden he's hosting "saturday night live". it shows even the mainstream media just absolutely don't have a backup. >> no, they don't. they're looking for the ratings. they know they will get the ratings. "saturday night live" is a show people do watch live. with dvr you don't see that very much ago. >> ben carson wasn't leading in the latest quinnipiac polls two weeks ago. if ben carson came forward and said, i want to host, they have no choice or they go to court. >> consider allowing him to host. you're ratcheting up ratings. you're giving all the attention to nbc to a show who has had star power over the years. "saturday night live" is the
1:20 pm
center of the presidential nomination for the republican side. >> yeah. hear carly fiorina is in the single million digits. jeb bush is in the tens of millions. when you look at it, it is really unfair. this is free advertising. >> well, of course. that's why we have that. that's why the frc has the rule. get her out there. see if she can get her equal time. if she comes out and contests it after that show. >> who is the bad guy? how badly will they be perceived if they contest it? because they have every right to do so. >> they sure do. >> great to talk to you both. we have some new updates now on the storm patricia. it's been the strongest storm ever in recorded history to hit the western hemisphere. now it's been downgraded to a tropical depression. forecasters say the storm could still do damage before it is expected to weaken over the mountains of mexico.
1:21 pm
we have the latest from mexico, where william is trying to stay dry. hi, william. >> reporter: hey, eric. i want to tell you you are looking at the sierra madre mountains. they rise from about sea level to 3,000 feet pretty abruptly. they turn this from a category 3 to 5 to 1 rapidly. it really saved the inland areas, which is where i am right now. i have gone through a lot of small towns on this road. they don't have any real housing standards is. that's not a criticism. it just means people are using whatever wood, brick, block they can find to create their barns and their houses and so forth. we have seen road side stands selling papayas and so forth. those did not fall down during this very intense wind. so the mountains may have something to do with that. if you look behind me, you see
1:22 pm
the high watermark. there is a dam upstream. they were worried the dam would burst and wipe out a number of towns downstream. that did not happen. partly because they say the rain was not as great as they anticipated it would be in some of these areas. it is not to mean there isn't damage in other areas. so far we have seen very little. flights have resumed. tourists are able to go home right now. that is the good news for mexico and the economy, tourism, peak system. it will be a good thing for the people and their property. >> it could have been so much worse. thankfully, it was not. thanks, william. actress maureen o'hara has died. she was 95 years old. o'hara's manager said she passed away peacefully in her sleep at her home in idaho. she is survived by a daughter in ireland. david lee miller takes a look
1:23 pm
back at maureen o'hara's storied life and legendary career. >> reporter: maureen o'hara was dubbed the queen of technicolor. >> i have always played very strong, dominant, courageous, brave, ridiculous women. >> reporter: one of six chiropractor she was born near dublin in 1920 to a businessman father and actress/singer mother. she began acting at the age of 6. in 1939, she received brave reviews for "jamaica inn". she made her debut in "the hunchback of notre dame." during the seven-year contract with 20th century fox, she is starred in "miracle on 34th street." >> have you had any experience? >> reporter: she starred in five films with her friend john
1:24 pm
wayne. rio grande. she recorded albums and starred abroad way. she starred in "the parent trap." o'hara was also a wife and mother. married three times. her third husband, charles player, perhaps the love of her life. >> he had a very wonderful glamorous, exciting, adventurous life. so i just became part of his life and lived the adventures that i acted. >> she took a leave of absence from hollywood for 20 years, until director christopher columbus was able to coax her back in 1991 for "only the lonely." >> come on. nick is a good guy. >> if i accepted, he would think i'm easy. >> reporter: she acted in smaller roles throughout the rest of her career. she played good-hearted yesterday strong heroines.
1:25 pm
>> thank you for that tribute of such an incredible star. actress maureen o'hara dead at the age of 95. as we have been reporting today, tropical storm patricia moving across mexico. but heading towards us on target in an era touted by rain and flooding. coming up meteorologist chris will be here watching the latest developments. and more as the storm zeros in on the lone star state. it takes a lot of work... to run this business. but i really love it. i'm on the move all day long... and sometimes, i just don't eat the way i should. so i drink boost® to get the nutrition that i'm missing. boost complete nutritional drink has 26 essential vitamins and minerals, including calcium and vitamin d to support strong bones and 10 grams of protein to help maintain muscle. all with a great taste. i don't plan on slowing down any time soon. stay strong. stay active with boost®.

hurricane patricia is pushing through mexico so far without any major damage. the record-breaking storm hitting the pacific coast with heavy wind and torrential rain but losing steam as it moves inland. it is now downgraded to a strom storm and inching closer to texas where parts of the state are already being slammed with heavy rain and flooding. chief meteorologist chris wright
1:30 pm
is in the fox weather center. what a difference 24 hours made. this was a category 5. you were talking about it being the biggest thing to hit the western hemisphere. these people really got spared. >> you say bigger. we are confusing biggest with strongest. so it was the strongest ever recorded but really small. so the impact isn't as big because it wasn't so strong across a big area. it was just across a very small area. and that small area that a lot of people haven't gotten to, including william who is 5 miles away, from where the center went on shore. the worst is a five-mile stretch where the center went on. there are some populations there and a couple towns that saw a lot of damage. we don't have the pictures yet. you go back a few days ago, 6:00 a.m., this thing was a tropical
1:31 pm
storm. it went from a drop storm to a cat 5 hurricane. it went in that area between puerto vallarta and manzanillo. it weakened across these mountains and dropped 100 millibars in just over 24 hours as well. i want to tie in a few stories here. remember the flooding across parts of texas and oklahoma back in may? it was some of the worst flooding we have seen. before that flooding happened, they had an incredible drought going on. after that flooding happened, it's been very, very dry. they have a drought there again. now flooding back on top of that. it is due to this system -- remember a week ago we had flooding and mudslides across the los angeles area? then major flooding in arizona and new mexico and western texas. that was a completely different system. now that system is across east texas. it is tapping into the moisture
1:32 pm
from what was hurricane patricia. get ready for incredibly heavy rain throughout the evening hours tonight, into louisiana tomorrow, mississippi and alabama. and a tornado concern. we have tornado warnings across the coastal areas. a big impact going on. >> thank you very much. >> you bet. jeb bush's presidential campaign has been taking on water. the former governor is hoping a weekend retreat in houston with his family and supporters can help right the ship. mr. bush's father, former president george h.w. bush and one of his brothers george w. bush will take part, along with mother barbara. major donors attending in the wake of the campaign tightening its belt, which including staff layoffs and paycuts. can these steps and the family's summit help jeb mount a come back?
1:33 pm
judy miller joins us. great to see you, as always. >> hi, art. nice to see you. >> good to see you, of course. do you think jeb with the summit with his father and his brother and the family can help him climb out of this? >> oh, yes. i mean, look, he's in trouble. there's no doubt. the exclamation point is kind of off the first name. but this ain't over by any means. the fat lady has not sung. and he can light his campaign. he can tighten his belt. he can get some advice from his father and brother, both of whom have been presidents. and he can win this thing. we have to remember that john mccain was also in trouble in 2008. he came back. the key for now, eric, is saving enough money into the primaries. of course he has to have a really good debate this coming week. >> let's start with saving the money. he has $10.3 million in the
1:34 pm
bank. the superpac is 10 times that. . 103 million. as you had, it's a matter of getting through the next few months to march 1st. why is that deadline so important with the beginning of those primaries to get to that point? >> well, look, these early primaries are currently key for him. he's got to have new hampshire. he's got to have iowa. he doesn't have to win all of them. but he has to win at least one of them. and he certainly has to win march 15th, which is florida. that's where he is going to be up probably against rubio. that's where it is going to be a make or break moment. if he doesn't do that, he cannot get the nomination. and that's why he's saving the money. because he knows that's where he's going to need the money. and as great as it is to have raised over $100 million for superpac, according to the law, you know, you have to keep that money separate. so the issue is how much does he
1:35 pm
actually have in the campaign that can be spent when he really needs it? that's why he is pulling back now. this is a very smart move, eric. he's got to do this now. >> it sounds like he is saving his pennies. you have tremendous respect for george h.w. bush and then his brother george w. bush. look at this quote from trump. astounding. he said on this family meeting, "butch has no money. he is meeting today with mommy and daddy, and they're working on his campaign. he's a guy wants to run our country and he can't even run his own campaign. think of it." . these snide comments. calling mommy and daddy when you talk about a former esteemed president. >> donald trump has an uncanny one of getting under jeb bush's skin. you saw it with his remarks with the brother. jeb was okay. he was cool.
1:36 pm
he was medium energy going along presidentially until trump attacked his brother. and then he just kind of lost it, lashed out. and it didn't look good for him. now he has to keep his rise, not rise to trump. he has to be cool, calm, presidential. and i think meeting with the family this weekend, especially barbara bush, who is tough as nails, is going to do a lot to keep him calm. >> thank goodness for barbara. final point. on wednesday, what does he have to do and do you think he will have to achieve that? >> i think he has to project a feeling for the american people that he actually wants to be president. there is a certain kind of routineness to his performances. i mean, trump wasn't wrong when he says bush is low energy. he's been trying to get around that by lashing out at trump. but the way in which he's done it often looks sophomoric, the
1:37 pm
reference to super girl when he was asked by his critics, is cutting back a sign that your campaign is a trouble. he responds blah, blah, blah, blah. this is not presidential. it doesn't impress people. he's got to take command but also be calm. it's going to be a tough road to work. >> all eyes on wednesday. we'll see how he handles his finances as the campaign continues. judy, great to see you as always. >> great to see you, eric. all right. a middle school official putting the pal in principal. how he stepped in to save a student's life when seconds mattered most, eric. and if you're looking for something other than the same old boring halloween, coming up a close-up personal look with the performers and characters for hire. oh, my god.
