8:01 am
time now for "mediabuzz." donald trump was all but written off a month ago, but the con coverage is changing in the latest presidential polls. i spoke to him earlier by phone from new york. >> donald trump, welcome. >> thank you, howie. >> hillary clinton called half your supporters a basket of deplorables, racists, sexist, xenophobic. when mike pence was making the rounds of the media with wolf blitzer and others, he was asked to call david duke deplorable and when he criticized duke but didn't use the word deplorable, what do you make of that? >> it's the media, the media is trying to do what they can to stop what's happening. mike was very rough on david duke, but he didn't want to fall into her word. he didn't want to use her word, and you understood that, because no matter what he said, he would have been criticized. and i was impressed with mike,
8:02 am
and i have been very, very impressed with mike. he was very, very tough on david duke, i can tell you that. >> colin powell in those hacked e-mails was very critical of you and hillary clinton, calling you a national disgrace, among other things. your response to the former secretary of state? >> well, i've not been a fan of his. i thought when he was talking about weapons of mass destruction, he really let us down a very horrible path that, obviously, the administration picked up and they went into a war that they shouldn't have gone into, but i was never a fan of his, and we can do a lot better, so, you know, i guess he knows my feelings about him, and, you know, might as well say whatever he wants to say, but he's known my feelings about him. >> right. you've been ripping certain news organizations on twitter, calling cnn a disgrace and an arm of the clinton campaign, accusing "the new york times" of dishonest hits and calling msnbc's morning team two clowns. how do you benefit from that?
8:03 am
>> well, i want to set the public straight, because i'm being hit. "the new york times" did a story on women and donald trump and past relationships and all the women came out and said they think donald trump is terrific. it was a totally phoney story and "the new york times" fully understands that, made it a front-page story. that was one thing out of many. hit after hit after hit, no matter how well you do, they refuse to do it, then you see some of their reporters, martin and some of the others, they have twitters that are just horrible what they say on twitter and they are supposed to be objective reporters. so i just like to set the record straight and whatever it is, it is, that's the way it goes. >> at the same time, you've now lifted the restrictions, you'd yanked the credentials of a bunch of news organizations, why did you change your mind on that? >> just because they can't treat
8:04 am
me any worse, i might as well let them be there. >> let's turn to the debates. you said you would prefer no moderators, quote, the system is being rigged so it would be a very unfair debate. how is the debate system rigged? >> well, it is a rigged system. the whole thing is, if you look at what's going on. look, matt lauer did a fine job. matt lauer was very tough on me and, i guess, he was tough on her. i thought, frankly, he was tougher on me. i won that evening, the forum, the nbc forum, and according to every poll and everybody just about, i won that evening with hillary. >> lauer got hammered by the press. >> and they hammered lauer, but matt did a fine job. matt was very tough on me. so what happens, it's called gaming the system, like a great basketball coach, like bobby knight, who was one of the greats, he would hit the referee and keep hitting him and in the end was hoping for the favorable call. well, they are hitting matt lauer and that sort of
8:05 am
indicative, they are trying to game the system. they want, and i think it's terrible, but they want the host to go after trump, and that's what they are doing by gaming the system. and you understand it as well as anybody. let's not even have a host. let's see, but i would say that would be great. >> but do you think that lester holt or martha radich or anderson cooper is going to be pressured into not being fair with you? >> sure, i think that's what's happening right now by the way they are hitting matt lauer, because matt lauer they felt wasn't as tough on me, and he was just as tough, if not tougher, but by doing that they are gaming the system, that's what they are doing and why they are doing it, for the debates. i think that and i think you think that, too, howie. you've made yourself clear. >> i think lauer did a good job.
8:06 am
>> he was tough on me, i thought he did a very professional job. >> let's move on, you said in many interviews, including with me, you opposed the iraq war before it began. i looked at the forums you cited and don't see any clear evidence of that. of course, you had a lukewarm comment to howard stern. >> that was long before the war started with howard, that's the first time the word iraq was ever mentioned to me and that was a long time ago. wait a minute, it was very lukewarm and then i spoke to neil caputo and that was very much on the other side, but i spoke to other people and if you look also, speak to sean hannity, who's a terrific guy, by the way, speak to him and he and i used to have arguments about the iraq war. sean believed in the iraq war. we used to have arguments about it, big arguments, and that was
8:07 am
before the war started. >> i was a private businessman, no responsibility to take a public position before the war and criticized the invasion after it began? >> i fought with sean hannity over it and the neil cavuto statement is pretty close to being like don't go in and don't make the mistake of going in. i said, i think, the economy has to come first. and also if you look shortly thereafter, one of the major people on television actually say, you know, whether trump was for it before the war, the fact is he was totally against it in the "esquire" interview, which took place pretty quickly after the war started. to me it's not even the same thing. i was against it before the war started and i hear more about this. but sean hannity will tell you that. i used to argue with him all the time. >> all right. the media's credibility is now at an all-time low according to a new poll, 32% having confidence in the press and you said the other day on a radio show you take some of the credit
8:08 am
for that. when you look at it, do you feel when it comes to credibility it's you versus them? >> i think the media is disgraceful. i think they are unbelievably dishonest. i'm not talking about you, i'm not talking about certain people, because i've got tremendous confidence and tremendous respect for certain reporters, set set cetera, but large portion of the media is disgustingly dishonest, i could name all of them that way, and probably some day i will, but they should be ashamed of themselves. and i'm very proud of the fact that at rallies, we'll have 10,000, 15,000, 20,000 or more, i will call the media out, and i think the word has gotten through, and i think the people, otherwise, look, i'm leading in so many polls, i'm leading in a lot of people that are starting to think i'm leading in almost all of the polls if you take a look at what's happened. how could that happen if people really believed the media, because all they want to do is write negatively about me.
8:09 am
it is so biased. you talk about cnn, it's called the clinton news network, cnn. it is so biased, it's ridiculous. and they are very dishonest and very dishonest people. i call them out and i'm proud of it and now i see their poll numbers are at an all time low and frankly i think i have something to do with it, but i'm very proud of it. >> let me finish on the question of the polls. by most accounts you're running a more disciplined campaign, giving scripted speeches, and that's a contrast to august when you were creating a lot of controversies, you say the press were making too much of those controversies, but sometimes you'd make off the cuff remarks that would resinate for days. do you think you adjusted and the previous style was a mistake when you were down in the polls now that you're coming back about even? >> i think i have somewhat adjusted. i thought i did very well before. when they said he did a bad
8:10 am
three weeks, tell me what i did wrong, people couldn't even say. they'd take something i said and take it out of context, shorten the sentence or do something else, chop it up into pieces and wouldn't sound like what i said. >> do you express regret? you express regret for some of your personal attacks, that perhaps led you to change your style or not? >> i think maybe so, because the media was not treating statements fairly. they would chop them up and shorten the statement, didn't sound proper or didn't sound as good when they did that. it was very unfair. now i'm doing it a little bit differently. we've had a great month. i see we're up in florida, up in ohio, we're up in iowa, we're up all over the place. and we're up in the national polls, too. the los angeles times just came out, we're five orn the los angeles times, that's a national poll, and -- >> and it's a one-point race according to a fox news poll.
8:11 am
it's a one-point race according to the latest fox news poll. clearly, the race is tightening. i wanted a sense of how you have adjusted. donald trump, thanks very much for calling into the show. >> thanks very much, thank you. >> interview took place before the press conference about birtherism. let us know what you think, when we come back, did trump stage the media to talk about birtherism? and later, why cbs went way over the line in editing bill clinton. remember here at ally, nothing stops us from doing right by our customers. who's with me? i'm in. i'm in. i'm in. i'm in. ♪ ♪ one, two, - wait, wait. wait - where's tina? doing the hand thing?

8:14 am
isis is claiming responsibility for the attack last night at a minnesota shopping mall. eight were injured after a man
8:15 am
in a security uniform wielded a knife in st. cloud. an off duty police officer killed the suspect. right now we have no evidence the suspect was in contact with isis before the attack. officials are expected to hold a news conference in minnesota in the next hour. we'll bring that to you right here on fox news. i was at donald trump's hotel on pennsylvania avenue on friday, along with the rest of the press pack after he signalled he would finally talk about his stance on birtherism. cable news networks took most of the event live as trump touted the hotel and decorated veterans touted trump before he got to the main event. >> i think it may be one of the great hotels anywhere in the world. that's the way it turned out. hillary clinton and her campaign of 2008 started the birther controversy. i finished it. i finished it. you know what i mean.
8:16 am
president barack obama was born in the united states, period. >> and he walked off without taking questions. joining me now, kelly riddell. and joe trippy, the democratic strategist and fox news contributor. erin, journalists were really angry, some of them were standing on chairs and shouting questions at trump as he walked away. did trump do a bait and switch to draw that almost nonstop cable coverage for what we thought were major remarks on the birther issue? >> he shouldn't have said he was going to take questions and then not take questions. >> i'm not sure he was saying that. >> cnn looked especially whiney because all their anchors were saying we were duped. for at least a year the networks have been taking trump's events live. they could have decided to go into the event when donald trump started speaking about the birther comments. they didn't have to take the
8:17 am
whole event live. the other thing i would point out, donald trump has been smeared through the press for being the king of tax breaks for all kind of other problems he's had with his hotel chains. here he had an opportunity with two months left to go before election day to remind everything of the success he's had. why people like him in the first place. i thought it was a smart public relations move on his point. >> nobody forced the cable networks to stay with that event until he got to the main topic, but was donald trump, in effect, forced, pressured to do this by the media because his top surrogates, rudy giuliani and kellyanne conway went on and said we believe obama was born in the united states, then people asked why isn't he saying? >> he tweeted earlier don't believe anyone you hear other than me, i'm the official word on everything, so, yes, i think he had to come out and put this issue to rest, because it was percolating in the press and now he can say i believe obama is a
8:18 am
u.s. citizen and that's important in his rehabilitation effort. i would say what i found very appalling about the media coverage at this was the debate of donald trump is he corrected one falsehood, but then gave two others. now, there is indisputable, fact checkers have said hillary clinton didn't start the 2007 birther rumor, but she, in fact, did. started with a mark penn memo in 2007. >> she didn't personally. >> her campaign did. he said she and her campaign. then her campaign manager went on cnn on friday, yeah, we had a staffer who sent a birther e-mail out and we fired them. that came from the campaign. >> let me get you in on this, the staffer was a volunteer that was fired, internal memo, didn't talk about obama's citizenship, but talked about painting him as an other and a reporter now says blumenthal actually told this reporter that obama might have been born elsewhere, blumenth
8:19 am
blumenthalen denies that. is the press holding trump accountable for making this charge against hillary clinton himself in the same two sentences where he's saying i accept obama is american? >> yeah, they are. let's go back to the original thing, presidential candidate manipulating the media to get coverage, i'm shocked about that. so i agree about, you know, that they've got duped into it, but then they went with it and stayed with it. on this issue, though, look, there were volunteers in the clinton campaign spread something or somebody not running for president. this is a guy who ran for president, is running for president, and the reason he got the nomination, big piece of it, was him playing to the birther movement and the coverage he got about that. so to show up five years later and just sort of, like, hey, i finished it, it's over -- >> we'll get into this more later in the program, but there also seems to be a theme in the media that he didn't apologize,
8:20 am
he needed to apologize because he did push this beginning five years ago. fair or unfair? >> has he ever apologized for anything? of course he wasn't going to apologize. >> that's not his style. >> stop complaining about it. >> what did you think in my interview with him as he talked about the disgustingly dishonest media that he is saying in advance, the debate mod rate tors will all be unfair, preemptive strike? >> i think that started earlier with the matt lauer interview when hillary clinton started fundraising off of the fact that matt lauer was so unfair to her in that, and all of her surrogates went on tv and said matt lauer did not hit donald trump like he needed to, didn't fact check on the spot, and that was cig falling to lester holt, to chris wallace, to the moderators, you better, you better go after donald trump and you better, perhaps, lay off hillary clinton or we're going to question your credibility. >> that assumes these are not journalists that can withstand pressure and i will withhold judgment until we see these debates. let me know what you think on twitter. ahead from hillary clinton's

8:25 am
dehydrated. >> but that involved some self editing and when the interview aired on "cbs this morning" we heard what the former president actually said. >> because frequently, not frequently, rarely, but on more than one occasion over the last many, many years, the same sort of thing's happened to her where she just got severely dehydrated. >> so cbs's nightly newscast deleted the part where the former president said happened frequently and changed to rarely. come on, it saved a grand total of two seconds and changed the meaning of bill clinton's comment in a way more favorable to hillary clinton. steve scully, the veteran c-span anchor, has always been highly dependable. >> from chicago, independent line, good morning. >> scully is taking on a new role that's never existed before, he'll be the back-up presidential moderator in case one of the others can't make it
8:26 am
on to the stage at the last minute. scully is doing all the preparation, writing questions, and will be at long island, st. louis, las vegas, though he knows the odds are overwhelming that he won't be called off the bench. ahead, the hacking of colin powell's e-mails have folks forgetting this is e-mail. james rosen is on deck. and later, the story about melania trump, news photos, and gaming the immigration system turns out to be wrong. heard anything about it?

that injured 29 people but fortunately no one was killed. investigators are looking into who might have left the bomb and a second device that was found and removed four blocks away. more questions than answers at the moment about what new york governor andrew cuomo described as an act of terrorism, but saying no evidence necessarily of international terrorism. mayor bill de blasio is holding a news conference at the top of
8:30 am
the hour and fox news will bring it to you live. we were on the air last sunday afternoon after hours of speculation about why hillary clinton left a 9/11 ceremony earlier, when the news broke. >> this is a fox news alert, hillary clinton has been diagnosed with pneumonia, that according to a statement from her long-time physician. >> that statement from the clinton camp came after a bystander's video showing how the democratic nominee almost collapsed as she was being helped into a waiting car. a reporter asked clinton about how that was mishandled and about her defensiveness with the press. >> can you be a little bit more specific about what you're referring to and did voters get a sense of some of that in the way your campaign handled the events of your illness over the weekend? >> you know, my campaign said they could have been faster, and i agree with that, but i have to
8:31 am
say, from my perspective, i thought i was going to be fine, and i thought that there wasn't really any reason to make a big fuss about it. >> both candidates putting out brief letters from their physicians, trump released his with dr. oz. >> how do you stay healthy on a campaign trail? >> well, it's a lot of work, you know, when i'm speaking in front of 15,000 and 20,000 people and up there using a lot of motion, i guess in its own way it's pretty healthy act. >> true if you're an anchor, too. kelly riddell, is the media overplaying the hillary clinton pneumonia story, or did clinton's campaign kind of turn this into a crisis through how they dealt with the media? >> they turned it into a crisis with how they dealt with the media, for sure. if she had pneumonia diagnosed on friday, as soon as she had to leave that ceremony early and dodge her press pool, they should have been notified, hillary clinton has pneumonia and is not feeling well, she's
8:32 am
got to step out. everyone would have understood, the story would have been over, but no, she had to wait eight hours later in order to make that announcement and that just raises suspicions. >> some clinton defenders are saying this is sexist, a woman being portrayed as frail, can't a girl have a sick day, she asks, as if the only question was about her getting sick as opposed to not releasing the information about the earlier diagnose of pneumonia. >> that's all true, all of it. i agree with kelly. the thing here is, look, from being in a presidential campaign, i've never been in one where pneumonia or something like it didn't sweep through the plane. >> candidates get sick, staffers get sick. >> no one, not one of them, would have been announced it before the candidate went down. i mean, that would not have happened. the whole thing within the campaign is keep pushing forward, but once she had to leave that event early, that campaign, if it wanted to avoid any of this, had to immediately
8:33 am
go out and say she had been diagnosed with pneumonia. >> rare moment of convergence, agreement between these two. erin mcpike, what about the contrast with donald trump who did his thing with a rather friendly dr. oz, do you think that generated more positive or negative coverage for him doing it in that forum? >> although the press ridiculed it, consider the alternative, in may of 2008 when john mccain was 71 years old, he allowed a select small group of reporters into a cold, darkroom for three hours to view thousands of pages of medical records and what he got was a couple of stories, lengthy stories, about some of the health issues he's had, but he's healthy, boring. donald trump taking a page from barack obama, who's gone on late night television to slow jam the news on policy, realizes he could get positive press with supporters for this. i think for him it was a good move. >> interesting, kelly, i think the press corps was pretty tough on hillary clinton over this whole pneumonia incident, in part because i think the press
8:34 am
felt misled and as you said, the press pool was there. in "the new york times," privacy backfired, her tendency to hunker down threatens to make her look again as if she had something to hide. when it comes to the comment she later regretted saying half of trump's supporters are deplorables, et cetera, the times puts together two paragraphs at the end of a story. what about that contrast? >> i mean, it's just bias. donald trump is right when he says there's a certain level of bias. she and her deplorables statement didn't get nearly as much coverage as romney's 47% coverage did. that lasted weeks on end. we've all heard the end of the deplorables comment. you heard in an interview with mike pence and donald trump earlier today was criticized for not using the word deplorable against david duke and the campaign has repeatedly denounced david duke and david duke is a racist, he's not
8:35 am
deplorab deplorable. >> he could be both. >> he could be both. >> let me get joe in, because some in the media reacted and i want to play a little sound here, by kind of defending the point hillary clinton was making about trump supporters. let's roll that. >> did she actually need to apologize for that? when you think about many of the architects behind the trump campaign who come from the alt-right universe, one could say her deplorable. >> as a matter of statistics, it's probably true people expressing racist sentiment constitute more than half of trump supporters. >> so we're hearing a lot of, yeah, hillary clinton was right, by people in the press who think half or more of donald trump supporters are terrible people. >> i don't think -- who knows how many are. that's what got her in the whole trouble in the first place. >> you've been in campaigns, is it smart to attack the opponent's voters when those voters may be tens of millions of americans? >> it's not, but one of the things that slammed the door on
8:36 am
that was trump's birther comments. he had her sort of trying to explain away the deplorable thing, which put the question of race and bigotry and stuff out there, and then he comes in and by trying to slam the door on birthers, sort of reignited a bit. >> that was interesting. >> the coverage, i think, he turned the coverage was going against her and turned it on himself. >> here's the thing, when i interviewed donald trump, he's on the three-week stretch of being more scripted and restrained, then we had the birther event and also donald trump saying this about hillary clinton and her body guards. >> i think that her body guards should drop all weapons. they should disarm. i think they should disarm. immediately. what do you think, yes? yes. yeah. take their guns away. she doesn't want guns. take them. let's see what happens to her. >> so, gun rights activists also make the point that people who
8:37 am
are opposed to gun rights, they have security, it's kind of a talking point. the press is playing this as an outrageous statement. certainly unusual for a presidential candidate to say about his opponent. >> it's important for the press to cover it because everything a presidential candidate says is important and speaks to their temperament. "the washington post," erin blake the reporter, actually unpacked the comment he made and said he's made the comment many times before and is just giving his sentiment on the second amendment. >> "new york times" says trump raised the spectrum of violence against hillary clinton. >> i think this one is really dangerous territory for him and the press to go down, not because of what he said, but because of somebody out there who might hear it and act on it and presidential candidates and the press, i think, having been in all these campaigns where these threats are real, you have to be careful about it. >> i just think that we should be debating the gun policy. second amendment policy between hillary clinton and donald trump. there's a distinct difference.
8:38 am
let's focus on the policy. this is a good way to bring that issue forward and we're not talking about it. >> can i say one thing about the deplorables comment, the difference with mitt romney is mitt romney tried to explain his comment on 47% away for weeks and didn't apologize right away, whereas hillary clinton, the reason i think the coverage went away -- >> she apologized for saying half. >> i've got to move on. interestingly, trump is liking comments more endowed, now calling her crazy, whacky, and neurotic dope. she's, i think, off the christmas card list. coming up, juicy stuff about trump and clinton in colin powell's e-mails, but are foreign hackers driving the elections is this. and later, the dropping of the birther issue. we'll name some names.

lit." james, media used to engage in hand wringing about these illegal hackings and awful invasion of privacy and now it's sort of, well, colin powell got hacked, that's too bad, let's move on to the juicy stuff. >> true, and it's because the tempo of the large scale prominent hackings are occurring, is it self accelerating and we're taking it for granted, it's becoming a norm, really. >> commonplace and we, therefore, skip over the ethical concern? >> there's one ethical concern over the beginning which media have endeavored to uphold, which is verification of the authenticity. there's a difference between readily publishing a false one versus a real one. >> in this case powell short circuited that by confirming these were his e-mails. in these e-mails powell called donald trump a national disgrace, among other things, said everything hillary clinton touches she screws up with hubris and says bill clinton was
8:44 am
still cleaning this up, blanking the bimbos at home. for any news organization, how do you not report that when everybody else is, does that become impossible? >> virtually, yes. even the most prestigious outlets are luring clicks away from cat videos, you're not going to make a point of avoiding something salacious and interesting like colin powell's private e-mails. >> let's put up the screen an interesting apology from dan abrams calls it a hollow apology rather than focusing on the fact that powell is the victim of a crime, we in the media have generally just exacerbated the violation by amplifying and spreading the news with little to no guilt. at least a little guilt? >> it's always healthy to feel a little guilt, i've known that since i was a child. colin powell is in public service, doesn't mean he's not a

victim here, but the injunction upon all of us to watch what we say in e-mails has been upon us for about 15 years or 20 years now. they say you make love by e-mail and make war by phone, but look, we're all just a hack away from ruin now and i think that's -- since the colin powell hacking there's been a more widespread sense of that. >> i think that's a really good point, the fact that there have been so many hackings and credit card information like we all have to think twice about things we used to think were private correspondence. talked to powell, you've covered the state department over the years, i thought journalists liked colin powell, thought he was a good guy, got good relationship with the press, and has good coverage except during the time in the iraq war, do you think reporters kind of relishing this story taking colin powell down a peg or two? >> i think where colin powell enjoys a large reservoir of support probably is within the washington press corps, which he
8:46 am
did assiduously cultivate when he was a public servant. i think colin powell has recognition in his own mind that his stellar career was tarnished or undermined in his service in the bush/cheney administration, whether that was his fault or sbun else's is up for debate, i think, but i think there's a joy taken at the misery of others, and it was the same for the sony executives and everyone else until it happens to you, then it's not so funny. >> right, right, it's funny, especially the gossipy part, until it happens to someone you know. this is the new normal, new reality. james rosen, thanks very much. great to see you. after the break, "a new york times" news story hammers donald trump for refusing to apologize for pushing the birther conspiracy. we'll look at the media's outrage. ♪"all you need is love" plays my friends know me so well.

they can tell what i'm thinking, just by looking in my eyes. but what they didn't know was that i had dry, itchy eyes. i used artificial tears from the moment i woke up... the moment i went to bed. so i finally decided to show my eyes some love,... ...some eyelove. eyelove means having a chat with your eye doctor abou because if you're using artificial tears often and still have symptoms, it could be chronic dry eye. it's all about eyelove, my friends.

[ laughing ] not the other way around. [ clock ticking ] the major newspapers are skewering donald trump over his remarks on birtherism. we're back with the panel. this is a "new york times" news analysis. it's still a news story written by a beat reporter. headline, trump gives up a lie but refuses to repentd. the story says trump surrendered to reality after a remarkable campaign of relentless deception that tried to undermine the legitimacy of the nation's first black president. why does that sound like an editorial to me? >> throughout that entire story, the reporter said this is not true. this is not true. i was struck when i was watching msnbc that day. katy trk ur said after every sentence, this is not true, this
8:51 am
is not true. what i've noticed is that the press has gone from bemusement and bewilderment and disbelief in covering donald trump to finally decide to do hand-to-hand combat him. >> you see this especially in the "new york times"? >> absolutely you see it in the "new york times." "the new york times" is focused a lot on intrigue and very flowery language and trying to describe donald trump being overly descriptive. from "the washington post," there's a lot more in-depth coverage of donald trump. i don't think any news organization has covered either of what the presidential candidates would do as president. >> well, "the washington post" is the other paper that day with a headline on -- not the lead story, but a side bar story. never sorry, never responsible, and never more loved by supporters. that piece talked about trump's refusal to take ownership of the things he's said and done.
8:52 am
>> the press wants to drive this issue home because they think it's a winner for hillary clinton. the african-american community is very unhappy with him. it's very disrespectful for the first, you know, president obama. you had michelle obama on the circuit. >> but isn't it a little more balanced to also say never more loved by his supporters. it is true that even when trump backtracks or moves on from statements that, let's just say, have not been verified or that others say are untrue, it doesn't seem to move the needle. his supporters like him for his unconventional style or his call it like it is style. >> you saw romney, mccain both try to make nice with the press. they all thought the press might come around to them some day. >> mccain joked the press was his base. >> exactly. donald trump is going hand-to-hand combat right back with them. he's a republican. >> it was pretty balanced. all that was true. >> i disagree. hillary clinton started this -- her campaign started this birther rumor, and the press
8:53 am
just wants to ignore that. she had dirty hands in this as well. rve . >> she doesn't have dir i hands. they fired the volunteer that did this. >> whatever hillary clinton's volunteers or aides may have done, donald trump campaigned on birtherism. >> this was his thing. this was like banning all muslims was his thing. it's his thing and his supporters love it. they don't mind when he backs off because they think that's what the media is making him do. >> coming wback to the press, d you think that donald trump pushed and he's not apologizing and is that reflected in the coverage? >> i think it's reflected in the coverage. ic that's true. just as she got in trouble by not getting in front of the health stuff, he created it when he did the stunt at his hotel. it opened him up to it. i think there's a lot of bias on
8:54 am
all sides, but the biggest bias i've experienced is the bias of the press to create a raise. they're going to make something out of him right now. now that he's moving, they're going to knock him down. >> just about out of time. brief comment, snern. >> the press always wants a race, but i think they've treated it as not a race. rve >> a month ago i said the polls would stop writing off donald trump. thanks very much for joining us this sunday. still to come, two big stories about donald trump that turned out to be wrong. and we're awaiting a news conference. looking at live pictures at new york mayor bill de blasio. he'll address the explosion in manhattan last night that injured 29 people. hey marc,

>> "new york post" created a huge media storm by publishing these 20-year-old nude modeling photos of melania trump, raising questions whether she was in the u.s. illegally and whether she lied to immigration authorities. now that a trump lawyer has certified melania did the photo shoot on a legitimate visa, the post ran one photograph says the photographered a admitted giving the paper wrong information. where are the corrections for everyone else when ran with this story many the media ripped the trump foundation for trying to influence pam bondy after the orlando sent knell reported her office was considering an investigation of trump university.
