8:00 am
more about my native american heritage. it's opened up a whole new world for me. discover the story only your dna can tell. order your kit now at . donald trump wins the media praise for his surprise trip to mexico, then endures the media scorn for his mediation. >> here he is standing on the world stage with a world leader. this is a big step. >> i think this is actually the single best day of the general election campaign for donald trump. >> it seems that this probably turned out for donald trump to be a pivotal moment, and i would argue probably the best day of his campaign. >> this is the best thing he's probably ever done in his life. >> this was certainly the most diplomatic moment we've seen
8:01 am
from donald trump. >> welcome to a trumpian stunt. he went to a country that's openly mocked him to meet with a leader that at one time compared him to hitler. >> sometimes it turned sharply negative. >> there will be no amnesty. >> trump yesterday, he's diplomat, and then he's red meat populist, and you're right, it's a con torsitortionist. >> it was a terrible trap for trump and he played into it. >> the mexicans are bad again, they'll have to pay for the wall, they're too dumb to know it yet, and by the way, the mexican immigrants are committing crimes at a historic pace and have to be kicked out. >> is the press being fair on immigration? and on trump's outreach yesterday at a black church. the fbi dump on the hillary
8:02 am
clinton e-mail probe does not change the media's handling of the case. the panel has been picked and one of them is from fox news. a conversation with chris wallace. plus, this story. >> it's hard to say we're saying this yet again, but anthony weiner has been caught in another sext scandal. >> weiner an embarrassment, sure. but should this be big political news? i'm howard kurtz and this is "mediabuzz." donald trump stunned the media world by quickly accepting an invitation from mexican president nieto and even his biggest critics applauded the foray onto the mexican stage. >> there is a lot of value that
8:03 am
can be gained by both countries working together. >> trump gave a loud and fiery speech hours later in arizona. while softening one part of his plan, warned of the dangers of illegal immigration and blamed part of the problem on the press. >> only the out of touch media elites think the biggest problem facing american -- and you know this, this is what they talk about -- facing american society today is that there are 11 million illegal immigrants who don't have legal status. >> joining us now to analyze the campaign coverage, heidi przybyla, correspondent at usa today, and sarah isgur flores, ruth marcus from the "washington post." is it fair to say that trump and how he handled himself, that trump got some rare media
8:04 am
praise? >> yes, and i think the reason why was because it was the opposite outcome than many of us were expecting. like chuck todd said in opening, here he was flying into the den of the man who had likened his rhetoric to hitler or mussolini. instead he walked out of there with an accomplishment in his pocket. >> trump was being positive. >> it was mostly positive. i called it a win for him and it was just like the expectations thing. that was not the outcome we were expecting. i also want to say, howie, this is a good example of how we're becoming the whipping boy for whatever side doesn't meet your side, skpm and many of the jour
8:05 am
li ists came back without recognizing the need for a 24-hour break in the news scandal. >> i was one of trump's fiercest critics and as you saw, they praised him and i about fell out of my chair. he did get a lot of praise. >> i never saw twitter do the 180. i was watching the speech beforehand. oh, there's no american flag, this is going to end his campaign. how could they possibly not have an american flag before him to, oh, huge win. i have to say there was something very refreshing about a campaign putting something together that quickly that wasn't perfect and yet was a win. because so often you're told, can't be done. you need at least three months to possibly do a state visit. it's like, no, you can do it in a day. >> i like how you proudly wear the word "praifoperative." but he said they hadn't paid for the border wall and he had told
8:06 am
trump that wouldn't happen. >> i did think -- and it's interesting you actually can put on a play or put on a stunt or put on an event with a world leader with very little notice. i thought it was a smart move for him. i thought he carried it off well. i think we all tend a little bit with trump to both overreact to the negatives and overreact to the positives. so the fact that he's there standing with a world leader, not spouting what we're used to from trump was a positive for him. it was a mistake for him to say something that it was easy for the mexican president to then contradict, and that made that actually compounded the problems he had later in the day with the speech, because he had to put "and they're going to pay for the wall, believe me" back in the speech. he said, i had to. >> is there medication for these wild mood swings covering trump? now let's go to the speech in arizona. it was pretty roundly criticized
8:07 am
by the media, both in strangers' reports and in the commentary. is that because they didn't like the tone or was it more than that? >> i'm going back again to the expectations argument, howie. many who cover the trump campaign know the trump campaign itself kind of had the expectation that he would be softening. >> trump used that word, softening. >> yes. they didn't see the softening in the rhetoric, though to be fair as a journalist, i have to point out there was some policy elements. there was no mention of the muslim ban. he really did leave it unclear whether there would be some immediate deportation of the 11 million which has been the issue all along. then there was also the expectation, we're now seeing trump 3.0. he's reaching out to minorities, he's reaching out to african-americans. he's apologizing for something. this is the time he has to do it to reach these suburban, independent women, but instead the rhetoric was pretty much similar to what we had heard in the very beginning of the campaign. the emphasis on the criminality aspect of immigration where this
8:08 am
could have been an opportunity for him to kind of highlight the very good contributions that legal immigrants make to this country to try to balance it out a bit. >> i think trump did say it would be several years before most of the 11 million illegal immigrants would be deported before all these other steps took place. he kind of got buried in the speech, but ruth, is there a mindset in journalists that mindful rhetoric goes forth, and does that seep into news stories when trump is made a demagogue of these stories? >> modest democratic reform does make sense. it may seep into stories, but i think it was really the trump campaign that set expectations and the journalists were more reacting to the expectations of softening set by trump and campaign and actually accentuated by statements that
8:09 am
might be a little bit strong but a totally credible performance in mexico. so i was confused just as not an operative, but i've seen some on tv, about what was the message that trump was trying to send? because the day to me was kind of dr. jekyl and mr. trump. is he the statesman-like guy or the round them up guy? he also made it really clear there was no path to legalization without people leaving the country. >> what also made news in the wake of the speech were reactions of some previously supportive hispanic folks, including jacob monte who was on trump's spanish advisory council. here's what he said on msnbc. >> i had, i guess, the naivety to believe this guy was a business guy, this guy was a republican. we didn't hear a republican last night. we heard a populist propaganda
8:10 am
con artist and i'm done with it. >> does that sort of coverage hurt? >> it does, and to both your points about expectations, this is where you see why a larger campaign infrastructure, a more professional communications team actually does matter for coverage. because that's who is supposed to set those expectations. they're supposed to get you embargoed remarks ahead of time like we were talking about in the green room. they're supposed to have their surrogates prepped. those guys were caught by surprise by the advisory board. >> sarah, don't you think one thing that might be going on here is that trump's team is not necessarily unified in what message it wants to be sending? >> i think they're surprised sometimes about what they're going out there and saying. >> there is an internal debate by trump advisers as to how much to soften or not soften? >> which isn't a problem in and of itself. it's a problem, though, when you're talking about a big speech where reporters head into one thing but they're actually going into another and they tweet and rave.
8:11 am
>> as a journalist, even if i got that in advance, i would look at it and say, whoa, zero tolerance, focusing only on immigrants as criminals, these types of messages. even if i had seen it in advance, i maybe would have had some time to chew over the fact that he was easing up a bit on some of the policy. however, i still think there would have been a lot of people surprised. >> you know, there are still a lot of hispanics who support trump, including this fellow marco gutierrez who went on nbc and said, my culture is still a non-dominant culture and if we don't do something about it, we're going to have taco trucks on every corner. there was a consult poll out today. it said 36 to 37% people say they believe all immigrants should go back to home countries and have to reapply for admission, which for many in the press' view is extreme. >> yes. but, you know, it sounds fair but then when you start -- now,
8:12 am
this is the opinion journalists make -- when you kind of start going through the logistics of it, trump has always said, and the good ones are going to come back in. it's not feasible. >> people believe contradictory things. before we go, i want to talk to you about two political headlines and this is the polls we're all obsessed with. one headline is, clinton's advisers tell her to prep for a landslide. another one is, inside trump's tower facing grim reality. teetering and threatening to collapse. bit too far based on late august, early september polls? >> you can't call it a race. at this point before we even had a debate. that's in defense of some of this coverage. we did see a pretty big gap in the last couple weeks in some of these battleground states, which as scholars of elections, we know these are the battleground states that determine the election. but that said, these polls are swinging very radically. that doesn't make them incorrect, but you certainly can't call a race based on it.
8:13 am
>> let me take a break. remember to write to us and i'll respond. it's does it change the media handling of this case? and later, is anthony weiner's embarrassment anything other than a tabloid tale? diabetes can be a daily struggle, even if you're trying your best.

8:16 am
reporters are suddenly scrambling on friday afternoon of labor day weekend. that's when the fbi chose to put out its interview of hillary clinton on her private e-mail server. the documents do not seem to provide any major revelations
8:17 am
about clinton's actions, though they paint her staff either unaware or unconcerned about the state department's policy on e-mail use. wasn't there more news than that? >> i think it's incredible, and the hillary clinton campaign doing a huge favor putting it out on labor day weekend. if they had destroyed e-mails in anticipation of litigation, they would be in such enormous trouble. and i think this is a part where you maybe see a gap in political reporters who don't quite know the law as well, aren't entirely familiar with security issues, saying there was nothing new here when, in fact, i thought that was explosive that that was in there. >> what does it say when the "washington post" said no major revelations? >> they're going to be backtracking off of that when people point out that this was a major revelation that they only wiped the server afterward. >> it was the lead story in the print newspaper once again. so that sort of just underscores the degree to which major revelati
8:18 am
revelation, minor revelation. this e-mail story is just like a chronic disease to hillary clinton and there are going to be flare-ups on it that started more than a year ago and that are going to continue to the 11th day. >> she said she couldn't recall many, many times and didn't -- >> three dozen. >> three dozen, thank you. didn't seem familiar with some of the e-mail classifications for security stuff, so on some kind of cosmic scale, how important is this story? >> the question is who is changing their view about hillary clinton as a result of this story, right? there are some people who think the e-mail story has been terrible and disqualifying all along, and there are some people who will either vote for her or never vote for donald trump no matter what. and so the question is the kind of marginal impact of this drip, drip, drip. i think it does have an impact but it's not this drip, it's the kind of accumulation of drips. >> it's her inability to answer it and then you're heading into
8:19 am
this first debate which will be so important for her. >> i want to stick to the media coverage here. the media prefers a smoking gun. a simple headline, clinton x. you didn't have a new smoking gun but certain revelations that don't look good for her. >> we've had e-mail revelations that we thought were really important for the past year. and while i agree with you that the deletions, that is a new thread, and that may go somewhere. we're hearing jason chafitz, the republican, saying they may pursue this. again, it's an allegation and we don't know if this was her technical support guy trying to cover up -- cover himself because he was supposed to delete this a year before? it was supposed to have happened a year before. so i think it's going to be like ruth says, it's part of the drip, drip, drip. personally as a journalist, i think the much more important thread in this news story about hillary clinton is going to be the focus on the foundations because we have been talking about e-mails for so long, that i do think for people who
8:20 am
already have formed an impression about the e-mails, it's going to just be another drip, drip, drip and the real focus is going to be on the foundation. >> just one quickie thing. i think the reason the destruction -- i mean, i think the deletion of the e-mails was a huge mistake and the deletion of it afterwards was a huge mistake. the thing that unsmokes the gun, if you will, is that there was absolutely nothing tying hillary clinton herself to it and no evident knowledge of that. if that were true, then the gun would be, you know, a machine gun. >> shouldn't the headlines have been "massive deletion of past e-mails which may or may not have been incriminating which we didn't know about until the media put this out"? >> if that's the case it's going to be very hard for hillary clinton to claim she had no c u clue. >> on that point, great to see you all here this sunday.
8:21 am
ahead, chris wallace. i'm being chosen as the third moderator for the presidential debate. facebook screws up those trending topics with a huge mistake about megyn kelly. um. something wrong? so when it comes to pain relievers, why put up with just part of a day? you want the whole thing? yes, yes! live whole. not part. aleve.

8:25 am
hero, but we're going to take the liberty of doing it, if you don't mind. >> but when they ran the piece, the front part of the piece had been visually blurred. they were so offended that it changed the reality that he was a trump fan. it was done in error. that's for sure. mark zuckerberg admitted facebook had had a problem after the flap about bias then they started relying heavily on algorithms. tell me if this sounds like a real headline to you. "breaking, fox news exposes traitor megyn kelly." >> also yours truly manages to sneak to the top of facebook. fired! what? can i sue my friends at facebook? >> that story is, megyn says,
8:26 am
complete and total garbage. it attributed to something called conservative 101. any human being with a pulse would have realized it was fake. facebook eventually apologized for falling for this hoax, not the story of trending topics but would someone who was not a tv star had had a harder time getting a correction? it's too easy for con artists to gain the system for cheap clicks. coming up, the host of fox news sunday picked as a debate moderator. my conversation with chris wallace. and why are we addicted to the sleezy anthony weiner's soap opera? talk to an allstate agent about all the things they do to keep riders riding.

8:30 am
martha raddalz. i sat down with chris wallace on sunday shortlily after the news broke. chris wallace, welcome. >> thank you. >> how do you feel about being chosen for this debate? how do you feel about it personally and for fox news? >> it is an enormously gratifying to be chosen. you are one of three chosen to be the moderator, to help tens of millions of americans make up their mind comparison shopping between the two or if one of them reaches 15%, one of the third party candidates as well, and i'm very proud to be a representative of fox. this is the first time that any journalist from fox has been chosen to run a general election debate, so i'm very proud for that. >> there are critics out there who say, oh, it's a right wing network who favors republicans.
8:31 am
does this dispel the work you did during the republican primary debates? >> i have to think -- i don't know this, but i have to think that the commission, which is really a blue ribbon panel, the two chairs of top former chairman mike curry, bill clinton the first press secretary, but there are also a number of distinguished people on the commission. i have to think they looked at the debates and the work we did and thought, these guys were pretty tough on republicans, they really are going to be fair and balanced. >> to coin a phrase. now, when you're on that big stage in las vegas, it's not like hosting a sunday show, correct? >> no, it's very different, and i'm very mindful of that. it isn't coming up with a killer question, not coming up with the great follow-up. i see myself as a conduit to ask the questions and basically to get the two candidates, or as i say, if one of the other people is on the stage as well, one of the third party candidates, but
8:32 am
to get the candidates to engage. i view it as kind of being a referee in a heavyweight championship fight. if it succeeds when it's over, people will say, you did a great job. i don't even remember you being on the stage. >> i understand that and i think it's the right approach, not making it about you, on the other hand, there is a lot on your shoulders, not only in terms of the question selection, but if they go at it, donald trump and hillary clinton, what do you do if they make assert n assertions that you know to be untrue? >> that's not my job. i do not believe it's my job to be a truth squad. it's up to the other person to catch them on that. i'm certainly going to try to maintain some reasonable semblance of equal time. if one of them is filibustering, i'm going to break in and give the other person a chance to talk. i want it to be as much of a
8:33 am
debate as possible. frankly, with these two and the way -- as keith jackson used to say about football rivals, these two just plain don't like each other. i suspect i'm not going to have any problem getting them to engage with each other, but i don't view my role as truth squadding. i think that's a step too far and if people want to do it after the debate, fine. it's not my role. >> now, there is a lot on your shoulders. it's a great honor, but also you have essentially sole discretion to decide what topics are going to be covered and how the questions are going to be crafted. are you going to -- how do you go about drilling down to decide what to pack into 90 minutes? >> first of all, i didn't really know what went into it, and i'm learning, and it is a little daunting. for instance, the way the debate is organized, there are going to be six topic areas, six buckets, if you will. one might be immigration, one might be isis and on and on. and each one the moderator asks a question and each of the
8:34 am
candidates gets two minutes to respond. if you assume it's two candidates, that's four minutes, then you have the remainder of the 15 minutes for that bucket to engage the two in a conversation. i asked one of the people on the commission yesterday, who decides the six buckets? because somebody has to tell the two campaigns a week in advance what are the six buckets. they said, you do. and i'm like, really? they said, yeah, you decide what the topics are going to be and we tell the campaign and that's it. >> no committees, no bureaucracy. >> no. >> your father, mike wallace, had an extraordinary broadcasting career. what advice do you think he might offer you? >> it's funny, i thought about this a lot. he would be very proud of me. i think he probably would have tried to steal it from me because that's who he was. >> he was to have sharp elbows. >> he did. and i think that he basically would say just do what you do. and yet it's different than a sunday show but just ask smart
8:35 am
questions, listen, follow up in the sense if somebody says something, try to engage the other person and get them to engage with each other, and again, understand that this isn't about you, it's about the candidates and it's about the voters having an opportunity at the end -- because this last debate will be less than three weeks before the election, an opportunity for voters to comparison shop, the last time they'll see these two on the debate stage together. >> chris wallace, do what you do and thanks for doing it with us. >> you bet. the "new york times" reports that hillary clinton's campaign didn't want anybody from fox news but the debate commission is independent. after the break, anthony weiner sending lewd pictures again and the media make it about the clinton campaign because of his wife. is that a stretch? and later, is the trump campaign taking the outreach to black voters seriously? gummies. they don't taste chalky and work fast. mmmm. incredible. can i try? she doesn't have heartburn.
8:36 am
new alka seltzer heartburn relief gummies. enjoy the relief.

8:38 am
8:39 am
there was no way not to cover what happened to anthony weiner, not after the new york post caught him sexting with another woman. this was the third time. and not after his wife announced they were separating. >> it is about the last thing hillary clinton's campaign needed as scandal involving the husband of her top aide, huma abedin. anthony weiner, the former new york congressman, was caught sexting again. >> it's an announcement that had immediate reverberations in the political world because abedin
8:40 am
is one of hillary clinton's top advisers. >> this led the top front page stories in the "washington post" and the headline that said, casts shadows on the hillary clinton campaign. we have mara liasson, nwr contribut contributor. what do you think about it casting a shadow on the hillary clinton campaign? >> i think that's an exaggeration. but it's like, try and look away. it's like a compelling car wreck and people want to look. why does it cast a shadow? because it's not good news and it has to do with her top aide. that's about it. >> anthony weiner was a congressman and it's news, but is this an attempt by the media to take a tabloid story and try to pump it up with some
8:41 am
political significance? >> i would agree with that, and i think the conservative media like breitbart and the media, they're all going crazy because they know the real scandals that are happening and they feel this is a distraction by talking about this. but the story was selacious, it was reckless behavior, think about his proximity to power and they couldn't not cover it. >> to your point, and i'll let you make your point, everybody quoted the trump statement. hillary clinton was careless to allow anthony weiner to have such close proximity to classified information. that means huma abedin, her closest adviser, was reckless to allow her husband to see any of this stuff. >> that's what we have no way of knowing, and donald trump wanted to cover this scandal. he wanted to pump it up as much as possible and make a connection between classified information and anthony weiner, which is tenuous at best.
8:42 am
>> political reports that the marriage was essentially estranged already and had been for some time. but this "new york times" story said it threatens to remind voters about bill clinton and monica lewinsky. really? >> it certainly does. i went back and looked at when he first had to resign from congress. tim kaine, that name might be familiar to you, at the time when anthony was a congressman and had to resign, tim kaine said, lying is unforgivable. lying publicly about something like this is unforgivable and he should resign. >> the difference is anthony weiner is not running for public office and he's running for someone who is a key part of this campaign but it seems like one step removed, no? >> right, but tim kaine is saying lying about sexting is unforgivable, but now he's signed on to be hillary clinton's vice president when she's lied about many things.
8:43 am
>> here is former campaign manager david plouffe on "meet the press." >> we have a psychopath running for president. >> diagnosing people on air -- i assume you don't have a degree in psychology. is that fair? >> i think it's worth asking someone in the mental health community if this is someone -- are these signs of something that perhaps could lead to -- >> david plouffe is a partisan democrat. but is trump crazy? and probably what the democrats wanted. >> yes, it's what the democrats want, it's over the line. it's just as bad as donald trump saying, oh, hillary clinton has a concussion, she's not with it, she's not with it mentally. then all the false stories about her aides carried a syringe. it's all out of line. after the goldwater election,
8:44 am
some group of american psychiatrists signed a letter and pledged to a policy that they wouldn't do that, they wouldn't diagnose someone from afar. and they're psychiatrists. so david plouffe who maybe is playing a psychiatrist on tv shouldn't do it, either. >> is this a case of letting a top democratic strategist set the media? >> if they come up with the most outrageous smears on donald trump, people start tuning him out. because they see donald trump is not a psychopath, and it also hurts people who are from families with actual mental illness that they use that kind of rhetoric when they are using it in a non-medical fashion. and it does allow the media to set the agenda based on what the democrats are saying. >> i understand a lot of people feel strongly about trump, but how did a psychopath build a republican -- win a republican nomination, build a global
8:45 am
business. it's these phrases, these incendiary phrases that the media shouldn't use. still to come, donald trump courts the black vote in detroit after the "new york times" says the whole thing was totally scripted. we'll get to that next. for lower back pain sufferers, the search for relief often leads here. introducing drug-free aleve direct therapy. a high intensity tens device that uses technology once only in doctors' offices. for deep penetrating relief at the source. new aleve direct therapy.

[ clock titime. ] you only have so much. that's why we want to make sure you won't have to wait on hold. and you won't have to guess when we'll turn up. because after all we should fit into your life. not the other way around. donald trump has been peppering his speeches with appeals to african-american voters, and yesterday for the first time he took that message to a black audience. here he is at a church thin detroit. >> i fully understand that the african-american community has suffered from discrimination and there are many wrongs that must still be made right. >> joining us now from new york,
8:49 am
amy holmes, political analyst for rasmussen reports and keli goff, host of political party nyc radio. amy, the times reported a couple weeks ago that trump was going to do an interview with bishop wayne jackson of new york. it would be a scripted q and a, the script was leaked to the "new york times" by somebody. how damaging is that story? >> well, it certainly influenced events because the pastor came back and said he would be adding questions that the trump campaign was not aware of. this whole coverage of donald trump and going to the black church and reaching out to black voters and the way the media is covering it, it sort of reminds me of the perpetually dissatisfied restaurant customer who says the food is terrible but the portions are too small. the media can't get enough of donald trump but it's always perpetually dissatisfied with his efforts. >> on that point, keli, here's a
8:50 am
"new york times" story who says donald trump has displayed as a devocateur, took an uncharacteristic at least get p for going and giving a somewhat humble speech? >> here is a tough thing for the trump campaign. he has a couple problems. a media narrative to mobilize the base support. that's the big, bad, mainstream media is going agangs them and they are going to misconstrue and represent him as intolerant when he is speaking for a vast majority of americans. two problems of selling that. problem number one is his own mouth and words and problem two is the only person who seems to enjoy it more than donald trump is david duke. when one of your most enthusiastic supporters is a white supremacist, that is
8:51 am
problematic. >> whoa! trump has nothing to do with that. let's stick to donald trump and the way he is trying to do it. it seems to me, no matter -- it's fair to bring up things he said in the past with the media coverage, but trying to make inroads in the black community is skeptical. >> the reason is david duke gave an interview. "the new york times" gives credit for donald trump's campaign and the success of it and the other problem is the media coverage and what he said that has been negative about hispanics and muslims in the last year. i think his campaign did not anticipate how it would hurt him in terms of coverage in the black media. for starters, plenty of black americans who identify them as black. >> i have to -- >> later going to a black church. >> hold on. hold on. if i could jump in to the coverage of the visit yesterday
