tv ABC News Good Morning America ABC June 19, 2012 7:00am-9:00am PDT
good morning, america. and breaking overnight, huge plunge at the pump. gas prices plummeting from coast-to-coast. down as much as 18 cents in the last week. savings we have not seen in years. just as the summer travel heats up on the highways. and breaking this morning, abc news has learned that the fastest-rising republican star, marco rubio, isn't being vetted at all for vice president. jon karl reports first on why rubio is not being considered for mitt romney's number two. and look at this incredible x-ray. this spear, three feet long, shot right through the skull of a 16-year-old boy. doctors say it's a miracle he survived. the stroke of luck that saved his life after a split-second mistake. and vandal scandal. the stunning moment caught on tape when this man defaced a priceless picasso.
it's in a houston art museum. spraying paint in the shape of a ball. the mystery, baffling the art world now. and the frantic search to track him down. good morning, on this tuesday morning. and when you see that x-ray, it's amazing. >> unbelievable. >> that he's okay. >> 16-year-old boy out of florida, was out fishing. and took the spear right through his head. look at that. it went all the way through. he is going to be okay. we have the details, coming up. >> even doctors are amazed. today is the last day of spring. but you wouldn't know it. record-breaking temperatures all over the country. feels like the middle of august. heat from chicago, to big "d," in dallas. and a lot of that heat, headed right for the northeast. sam will be along with all the latest on that. >> coming our way. we're going to have the latest this morning on the jerry sandusky trial.
that testimony is so chilling and so sad. his team is mounting defense right now. sandusky has not taken the stand. his wife is on the witness list. she may take the stand today. >> we'll ask dan abrams about that. and sharon osbourne, did you see her yesterday? speaking out about her emotional words about her son, jack's multiple sclerosis. why she may be blaming herself. >> he's taking solace in his little girl and this is treatable. and josh elliott is here. good news on gas prices. >> that's where we're going to begin. great news for gas prices and those of us with long commutes. gas prices taking a plunge and a big one. we're seeing savings this morning we haven't seen in months or years. bianna golodryga is here. good morning. >> reporter: finally good news, right. we got the latest figures, from gas stations coast-to-coast. we want to show you the national average. take a look at this. $3.50 per gallon, down 7 cents
the last week or so. this is big news, as well. but the biggest news is happening on the west coast. take a look at this. in washington state, down 18 cents. oregon, down 17 cents. california drivers are saving 13 cents per gallon. that's the state with the most drivers. below $4 for the first time since february. and one analyst predicts the pries could drop another 75 cents in california in the coming weeks. and it's all because of weak demand. falling oil prices as refineries coming back online. 75 cents per gallon for a driver, a typical sedan would save about $12 every time they fill up. that's significant money, josh. >> california is the place to be. thank you, bianna. this morning, the white house is denying that president obama and russian president vladimir putin had anything other than a constructive meeting at the g-20 summit. but the looks on their faces certainly suggest otherwise. despite the apparent tension in the room, the leaders did agree that the violence in syria must
end to prevent that country from descending into civil war. president obama said he and putin will work out any tensions between the two men. and the man president obama chose to become the next ambassador to iraq has withdrawn his nomination. brett mcgurk's judgment was questioning after sexually suggestive e-mails exposed his affair with a "wall street journal" reporter while both were in iraq. in those e-mails, mcgurk implied he would give gina chon access to sensitive information if their relationship blossomed. it turns out two strikes and the federal government is out. former pitcher roger clemens has been acquitted on all charges of lying to congress. it's the second time he's been tried for denying the use of performance-enhancing drugs while testifying before congress. this time, clemens choked up as he left court. >> all you media guys that know me and followed my career --
>> clemens would go on to say that he put a lot of hard work into his career. the government spent some four years investigating him. in the end, the case rested on one witness and the jurors didn't believe him. and it's not your typical morning traffic jam. take a look. farmer in china decided to take his 5,000 ducks for a walk. they wanted to take a dip in a nearby pond, of course. but they had to waddle their way three-quarters of a mile to make it. the farmer says he didn't even lose one of those little guys or gals. he says all are accounted for this morning. what did he do? take roll? >> he is a champ. that's incredible. >> indeed. thank you to all the interns who counted the 5,000 ducks. >> right over there. all right.
and you didn't wait until "play of the day" for that. all right, josh. thank you. now, to the latest on the trial of jerry sandusky. the prosecution has rested. and now, his defense team, laying out their case. and the big question, will his wife take the stand? abc's jim avila is there in pennsylvania with the very latest. good morning, jim. >> reporter: good morning, robin. she's waiting in the wings, jerry sandusky's wife of more than 50 years, dottie. will she take the stand? what did she see? what did she hear? and for that matter, will jerry sandusky take the stand? those are the big questions today on the second day of the sandusky defense. this could be the day. his attorney hinted in opening statements the jury would hear directly from jerry sandusky. but when he last left the courtroom, the accused former penn state coaching legend was mum. >> what did you think of day one of the defense? >> reporter: the defense started slow with a string of character witnesses, who told jurors sandusky is a local hero, with a great reputation.
and showering with boys was not unusual in the athletic world. but in the end, shedding little light on the actual 51 abuse charges. and some say sandusky must come to his own rescue or face a long stay in prison wondering why he didn't even try. >> he's going to have to look the jury in the eye and say, i did not do this. yes, i spent a lot of time with these young boys. my motives were pure. i did everything that people talked about, in terms of helping them. but i am not a child molester. >> reporter: he did it once for "the new york times." >> these allegations are false. i didn't do those things. >> reporter: but then, stumbled badly with follow-up questions nowhere near as vicious as he could expect in a grilling cross-examination. >> if i say no, i'm not attracted to boys, that's not the truth because i'm attracted to young people, boys, girls. >> reporter: and what about his wife, dottie? will she take the stand? she's on the witness list and
has stood by her husband from the start. but what did she know? one victim told jurors, she was in the house upstairs, when he was abused and screaming. >> she could say she never heard such a thing. she could say, i have been with my husband for many years and i never suspected anything like this. >> reporter: so, the real question for the defense is, does dottie sandusky really know anything relevant that would help her husband on the stand? or would she just be another glorified character witness? robin? >> good question there, jim. thank you. we're going to bring in our legal analyst, dan abrams. we're going to ask you that in a moment. but first, sandusky, the chances he would take the stand? >> ordinarily, i would say, no way he's going to take the stand. looking at the kind of evidence coming in in this case, i would say, it could be their only hope. and then you listen to how he performed in those media interviews. and you say to yourself, how could they possibly put him on the stand? i mean, he was a disaster in those media interviews. so, he's in a -- somewhere
between a tough and impossible spot. he's got to make a decision. i think he's probably not going to take the stand. and if he does, my guess is, it's not going to end up well. >> no telling what he'll say, based on what we've seen, in those media interviews. >> you can't parse words the way he parses words in the media interviews. >> he'll be grilled. >> yeah. they'll follow up. what did you mean by this? they can bring in all of the media interviews, as well. >> how about his wife? you heard what jim said. will she take the stand? and what help could she be? >> the real help, she could be is to humanize him. she may be able to help him on one or two occasions, saying he was or wasn't here on a particular date or time, et cetera. but in the end, i think she is a character witness for him. >> is she in possible legal trouble herself? >> i don't think so. there's been a lot of talk about what she might have done, should have done, et cetera. i think at this point, those are probably moral issues, rather
than legal. >> this trial is moving quickly. >> absolutely. it was supposed to be a three-week trial. it could be a two-week trial. we could wrap up this week. >> all right. we'll be back with more. now, to politics. "your voice, your vote." and that breaking news in the veepstakes for mitt romney. abc's jon karl is learning that one of the most highly-touted and popular choices, florida senator marco rubio, is not even being considered now by the romney team. jon joins us now. jon, this is something of a surprise. a lot of republicans, like jeb bush, think rubio would be the most electrifying, most solid choice. but he isn't turning over background materials? >> reporter: that's right. this is a surprise, george. for months, even before romney secured the nomination, marco rubio was on top of everybody's list of potential running mates. i have learned that he's not been asked even the first step. he's not been asked to fill out questionnaires. he's not been asked to turn over documents by the romney vetting team. that's the kind of stuff you begin to do when you look at your short list of potential
candidates. although the romney campaign will not comment, marco rubio will not comment, at this point, all indications are, he's not even being considered as a running mate. >> and all eyes are on several former governors, governors, members of congress, that have actually been out on the bus tour with mitt romney. let's show a few of them. former governor of minnesota tim pawlenty. ohio senator, rob portman. kelly ayotte, senator from new hampshire. and paul ryan, congressman from wisconsin. what the romney team is looking for here is has some experience, who is a safe choice. >> reporter: right now, the person i would put at the top of that list, george, is tim pawlenty, the former governor of minnesota. the romney team says he has been their most effective surrogate on the campaign trail. and he seems to have a very good relationship with mitt romney. >> fully vetted. he was the runner-up last time around for john mccain. >> reporter: absolutely. >> jon karl, thank you very much. a big challenge for the ipad this morning.
microsoft trying to take a "bite" out of apple, revealing a brand-new tablet called the surface. abc's neal karlinsky goes inside all the hype. here's a look. >> reporter: this morning, microsoft is waking up to a word the company hasn't heard in a long time. wow. they call it surface. the newest competition for the ipad. and already, even microsoft's biggest doubters are calling it very cool. >> it's well-designed. it has cool, colorful accessories. i'm interested in it. >> reporter: it isn't your father's windows. it has a slick touchscreen just like the ipad. and a sleek new case, with a built-in kick-stand. unlike the ipad, it will run as a full computer. and it has a full, foldout cover that turns into a physical keyboard. >> microsoft has not had any product to compete with the ipad which has taken over the
market in the last three years. microsoft has a product that looks like it can go toe-to-toe with the ipad. >> reporter: the stakes are huge, in an all-out tablet war between the titans of tech. google and amazon have their tablets, scratching at apple's heels. all of those shiny android tablets and the kindle fire can't compete. the all-powerful ipad, sold enough last year to nearly double the competition. the ipad is simply the gold standard. built in secret, entirely by apple. but microsoft has taken a page straight from the apple playbook this time. a top-secret hollywood launch for a device built head-to-toe in-house. >> looks like they can do a nice job with it, in terms of design and components. >> reporter: the question this morning is, can a company that failed to catch the company who made the ipod and underwhelmed in the case of the iphone, get it right this time? the tablet wars are on. and microsoft believes its magic is back. for "good morning america," neal karlinsky, abc news, seattle.
>> pretty cool. we're going to turn to the mystery from texas where the search is on for the vandal who covered one of pablo picasso's masterpieces in spray paint and got away, even though the whole crime was captured on cell phone video. abc's rob nelson has the story. >> [ bleep ]. >> reporter: you can see it. but you just can't believe it. >> [ bleep ]. >> reporter: look at it again. a cell phone records a person at a houston museum, vandalizing a 1920 painting by pablo picasso, "woman in a red armchair." >> i'm shocked that he did it. like unabashed, he just ran up and did it. >> reporter: museum officials say the crime occurred last week. the painting was doused with gold spray paint in the image of a bull. and the word conquista, according to police, who says the vandal then fled. >> it goes against everything why art is there.
it is supposed to provoke and mean something. but to destroy it -- >> reporter: the museum staff houses a conservation lab on-site. and workers are working feverishly to clean the painting. workers told "the houston chronicle" that repair work began immediately. and the painting has an excellent prognosis. >> it's excellent it can be repaired for historic purposes. it's excellent it can be repaired for the respect of houston. >> reporter: the museum was unable to estimate the painting's worth. but other picassos similar to this one have sold for tens of millions of dollars. no arrests have been made. but police are surely poring over the video to find the culprit. for "good morning america," rob nelson, abc news, new york. >> thank goodness they can fix that.
i love the word they use for that "prognosis." >> i like that. we're going to move to the man who went on vacation, ended up a superhero. two days in a row, gus hurt came to the rescue. and dan harris is here with this amazing story. >> i love this story. you have to feel for gus. here's a father of four from virginia, who went to florida. all he wanted was a relaxing fishing vacation. and he keeps getting interrupted to heroically save people's lives. it started as a simple family vacation near tampa, florida. >> see the dolphins? >> reporter: but the other morning gus' wife looked out the window of their condo and saw that a driver had gone off the road, down this hill and into the water under this bridge. >> she yelled "there's a car in the water!" she called 911. i dove in the water. >> reporter: the driver, who had a diabetic episode, was unconscious but breathing. gus and this local fisherman pulled him out. >> another three or four minutes, he would have drowned. >> reporter: the next morning, as gus was trying to restart his vacation by going fishing, he looked up and saw a small, ultralight plane crash into the
water. >> it passed over. started to descend. about 500 yards away, i saw a huge splash. it flipped over. i thought, oh, my gosh. here i go again. >> reporter: yet again, he leapt into action. he dragged the pilot -- >> a hard landing. >> reporter: -- and his female passenger, who had more serious injuries, on to his boat. family members of the victims were extremely grateful. >> thank you, thank you, thank you. bless his heart, he seems to be in the right place at the right time. >> reporter: so was the local fire chief. >> when you have citizens that are willing to step up, while waiting for us to get there and risk whatever it takes and make a difference, it does help us tremendously. >> reporter: but gus adamantly refuses to be called a hero. >> i did what anybody else would do. it was nothing spectacular about it except it happened twice in a row. >> reporter: he may not think he's a hero. but his children certainly do. >> i told him that he did something very good. and i don't know how i would do that.
>> reporter: a little piece of advice, if you happen to be in the tampa area and you see gus hertz coming, go in the other direction. a local fire department was going to give hertz a citizens' heroic award after the first incident. but now he's doubly deserving. they'll give him the award on thursday. but it strikes me that is yet another interruption of his vacation. >> i think you want to be where gus is. if anything happens, he's there for you. >> that's another interpretation. >> dan, thanks. you'd do the same thing, wouldn't you, sam? >> i don't know. twice? i don't know. i might hold that cold, frosty drink and go, no, not again. let's get to the boards. we'll show you what's going on this morning. we give you a picture out of chicago. already at about 6:00 in the morning it was about 68 degrees, headed toward another 90-degree day. that's 12 presummer. the last day of spring right now. the big pocket of heat spreads across the country. it moves to the eastern seaboard
over the next 24 hours. the most impressive numbers may be the heat index level. the combination of heat and humidity we usually don't talk about in spring. we usually talk about in summer. st. louis feels like 101, so does chicagoland. that heat is all over the country today. quick look at the big board.
>> >> some of the heat comes with storms. we'll talk about that the next half hour. >> thank you, sam. look at this unbelievable x-ray. a three-foot spear went straight through a teenage boy's skull. what doctors say now about his miracle recovery. and gary giordano's quest for cash. why he's suing right now for millions, months after his travel companion, robyn gardner, disappeared in aruba. and sharon osbourne speaks out. her emotional breakdown about her son's health battle with ms. and undercover at the makeup

look at that teenager being rushed into medical care. he actually is conscious. and do you see? you can see the spear. a three-foot-long stainless steel spear, sticking out of his skull, after a fishing accident. how a little luck and a lot of work by doctors saved his life. >> that is just incredible. he is going to be okay. also this morning, the latest on gary giordano. remember him. he is the man who made headlines of the disappearance of his traveli traveling companion, robyn gardenguar gardn gardn gardner, went missing.
and sharon osbourne, speaking out on her son, jack, and his diagnosis with m.s. also, we have a little investigation this morning. >> we do? >> the ugly truth revealed when we go undercover at the makeup counter. what you want to know about the cosmetics you may be about to put on your face. >> i know. hesitating. we'll get to that in our next half hour. now, that stunning story. a teenage boy survived after being struck in the skull with a three-foot stainless steel spear while out fishing with a friend. unbelievable image you saw. and abc's bazi kanani has more. >> reporter: good morning, robin. this spear is made of stainless steel. about three feet long. one look at the patient who had one of these inside his head, and you can immediately understand why doctors say it's miraculous that he survived. the teenager on the stretcher was conscious, still talking when paramedics rushed him to
the hospital. his diagnosis was quite obvious and horrifying. his prognosis, unknown. >> the tip we could feel underneath, it didn't penetrate the skin. but you could feel it under the skin on his head. we knew it went through. >> reporter: doctors in miami show us what they saw. a spear, fired ooh from a gun like this one, went directly through yasser lopez's brain. lopez and his friends were using the spear to catch fish on this lake in miami, when the powerful spear gun somehow got pointed in the wrong direction. >> temptation, if you don't have experience in these things, oh, well, pull it out. you do that, most of the time it's going to be fateful. >> reporter: firefighters had to use a cutter to cut the spear so the teen's head could fit in a c.t. scanner. doctors used the images to plan the three-hour surgery that saved lopez's life. >> if you had to shoot a spear
through there, this spear chose the right path to go. >> reporter: it travelled through the right hemisphere of his brain, less than an inch from the central brain that control senses, heart rate and breathing. somehow damaging all major blood vesseling along the way. >> these are structures, if they had gone through those, he wouldn't have survived the ride to the hospital. >> reporter: this morning, brain scans show little damage to lopez's brain. and his doctors are optimistic. >> he's making a pretty much miraculous recovery. >> reporter: a miraculous recovery from a split-second mistake that nearly cost him his life. the teenager is sitting up, saying a few words. his doctors are optimistic he'll make a full recovery. he may have lingering problems with movement on the left side of his body. his family didn't want to speak with the media. but he wanted the doctors to share those stunning x-rays and brain scans as a warning to other teenagers about the dangers of spear guns.
robin? >> good of them to do that. so incredible. bazi, good to see you. thanks so much. we're going to turn to the latest on gary giordano, the man who was suspected but never charged for the disappearance of his traveling companion, robyn gardner, last year. he is suing over an insurance policy that giordano took out on gardner for their trip. >> reporter: giordano said he paid the premiums. now, it's time for the insurance company to pay up. in an effort to make them do just that, late last week, he filed a lawsuit against the company, for failing to pay him the death benefit he deserves. the latest legal battle for gary giordano is not as a suspect in the disappearance of his travel companion, robyn gardner, but a $3.5 million lawsuit insurance plan he took out on her when she was visiting aruba with him.
two days later, he called to inquire about that policy. and the morning after he was released from custody in aruba, he tried to explain his rationale on "gma." >> that's a wonderful question. i understand that. my lawyer, at the time, he had -- he told me and said, you need to call insurance immediately. >> reporter: but an american express employee he spoke to, said giordano sounded excited, like he was about to win something. although the policy was for $1.5 million, giordano is suing for more than twice that. he said the accidental death package was 235part of his traveling package. >> if i go traveling and i disappear, i want them to be covered. okay? when i selected that, i was thinking for me. and she got the same thing. >> reporter: when abc news called american express, they told us, when somebody takes out a policy and there's no body, they're required to wait 365 days before making a claim.
which wouldn't make giordano able to collect until august. robyn gardner's boyfriend says the new lawsuit makes him more suspicious of giordano. >> what he's doing right now is exploiting robyn's disappearance. and trying to make a fall fortune off of it. i didn't think it was possible to be more suspicious. but this absolutely does make me more suspicious of him. >> reporter: apparently giordano doesn't mind the publicity. last month, he got in trouble with the law in maryland on charges of indecent exposure after he was allegedly caught having sex in the back of an suv in a public parking garage. you have to hate when that happens. police say this was not a chance encounter. george, there was actually a mattress in the back of that suv. >> okay. a lot of information in that tag. linsey, thanks very much. i'm here with dan abrams now. you hear that story.
and you say, have you no shame? >> the parking fees can be expensive at times. no, look. the bottom line, look, his position is, he had nothing to do with her disappearance. his position is, that's why you buy insurance. if something happen, you're allowed to recoup it. the problem is, he's got to know that everyone is watching, right? he's still considered in whatever this term means, the only suspect. and for him to go forward now, less than a year since she's gone missing, is just foolish. i mean, put aside the legal issues, for a matter of how people are going to perceive it, he has to understand that people are going to look at this and say, wait a second. now, this is the right thing to do? there needs to be a formal declaration made. >> that the body is still missing. >> right. that she's even died. >> once a year passes, and the insurance policy is at it, does he get the money?
>> not automatically. the insurance could fight it. the insurance company could say we're going to fight this. we don't believe this is a legitimate claim, et cetera. so, they could, in their own way, kind of bring this to trial if that so chose to do. we'll see if that happens. >> and if he gets the money, is he then open to a civil suit? someone associated with robyn gardner would collect from him? >> there has to be someone withstanding to do it. a family member, sure. now, let's get the weather from sam. >> hi. >> he's here with us. >> no. it's fine. we're just doing some house cleaning over here. pay no attention over here. let's get what we've got going in chicago. we'll show you pictures, by the way, of -- a tree and a house in ohio, right? is that the next thing coming up? turns out it's pretty difficult to make dinner in norwalk, ohio, when the tree comes through the middle of the house about that
time. there was big storm damage in that area. everybody's okay in that zone. minneapolis, fargo, duluth, marquette, all in line for the strong storms to develop, 70-mile-per-hour winds. golf ball-sized hail likely in this again. the heat in the middle of the country does move east. it's affecting a lot of folks. boston at 93. new york city, 98 degrees. not today. but tomorrow. huge, huge difference from one day >> all that weather was brought to you by the capital one venture card. the only place to escape the heat will be in the great northwest, and alaska.

makeup samples really are. you thought about this. abc's elisabeth leamy is here with results of her hidden camera tests. >> yes. >> do tell. >> reporter: clerks told us they usually switch out their makeup samples just once a year, which means when you use them, it's kind of like sharing your cosmetics with hundreds, maybe even thousands of strangers. the allure and intrigue of a new look. it's the reason so many of us are drawn to the makeup counter. but what else could you be putting on your face, along with that sparkle, glitter and glitz. my germ detection team and i hit ten stores in two states to find out. armed with sterile swabs and an undercover camera, we collected samples from three categories. eye shadow, foundation and lipstick. 30 specimens in all. at one of our first stops, we found a these fuzzy lipsticks.
they rated pretty high on our gross meter. but would they be germy, too? at another store, we found a lipstick that's meant to fight germs. but could it? >> scrape the lipstick off of the tube to an applicator. but they didn't sanitize the tube first. then, there's this. a commune brush. most stores offered disposable applicators. but we were shocked to find one store with makeup brushes for everyone to share. we had to swab one. we sent all of our swabs to nyu's microbiology department. brace yourself. this lipstick was the best sample in our test. here's why? how do you do that? >> rubbing alcohol. >> reporter: it worked. the alcohol killed all of the germs. but what about the fuzzy
lipstick? and the sterile applicator into the nonsterile lipstick. they contained bacteria. and one of our worst offenders was that communal brush. >> double-dipping, who knows how many dips you do. >> reporter: that brush was loaded with organisms, indicating skin bacteria. and our worst sample isn't pretty. it came from this foundation. it was harboring loads of a bacteria strain that can make you sick. >> if you have an open cut, you might not want to go that route, using makeup that's been used by other people. >> reporter: even worse, one of every five of our samples, 20%, showed significant growth of mold, yeast or fecal matter. the thought of what you could be putting on your lips left some shoppers speechless. what do you think? others had plenty to say. >> i don't need the cesspool.
>> that's crazy. >> i don't want that on my lips. >> that's so foul. >> i like that a lot. >> reporter: we shared our findings with elizabeth wells. >> i would not want to go near one. there's better ways to do it. >> reporter: for eye shadow and eye liner, use a disposable applicator. and test it on your hand, instead of your eye. for foundation, test it on your neck, away from your face and lip. as for lipstick, don't put it anywhere near you mouth. instead, use the pad of your finger. >> you can't know what someone else has done before you. >> reporter: ail tips to keep ugly bacteria at bay and you looking pretty. >> thanks for the tips. second of all -- what was the worst? >> do you have a guess? >> i would say lipstick? >> i thought that, too. but the eye shadow and the foundation was the worst. there's no difference between

we have a health warning. it turns out that people with one of the most popular surgeries to lose weight have an increased incidence of alcohol abuse? >> this was a big study. they looked at more than 2,000 people going through weight loss surgery. they found that if you have weight loss surgery, your risk of having an alcohol abuse problem goes up. it depends on the type of surgery. look at the numbers. before the surge, 7% of people had an alcohol abuse problem. two years following the surgery, 10.7%. the numbers, that accounts for 2,000 case of alcohol abuse per year because so many people have this surgery. they found absolutely no rise if you have the lap-band surgery. >> do they have any idea why the surgery leads to that risk? >> i think that's what's really interesting. let me show you with the procedure where they saw this problem. they're shrinking down the size
of your stomach. they divert your food away from the stomach. food and alcohol aren't going in there. alcohol is broken down in your stomach. if it bypasses your stomach, you're absorbing more. you're getting a high amount of alcohol and getting it faster. that can increase the risk for addiction. >> this is something potential patients should be aware of. but it shouldn't stop them from getting surgery, right? >> i don't think so at all. this surgery for the right person can be life-changing. know that if you have this procedure done, you have the increased risk. and you may not be able to handle alcohol the way you did before. you need to adjust for that. >> rich, good information. let's go back outside to robin. >> oh, i'm sorry. when you're out here and you're talking to everybody. and you know her as 13 from the medical drama, "house." now, olivia wilde is tackling a new drama in the new film "people like us."

i was at the premiere last night. he describes this as a love letter to broadcast journalist. but also a pretty piercing critique. >> aaron will tell you it's a romantic view of what cable news could be or should strive to be. i think it does often. but i think it's up against obstacles, having to do with ratings and things like that. >> you play a guy that's something of an anchor monster. and it's just beginning to dawn on him that he's not such a great guy. take a look. >> i didn't know. >> what? >> i didn't know that people didn't like working for me. >> do you care? >> no. of course i care. anybody would care. but honestly, i don't. i do. i am a perfectly nice guy. and i have the focus group data to prove it. >> no matter how i treat people. >> sure. >> you have to clear something up. keith olbermann says this is the
second time that aaron sorkin has written about his life. this time and "sports night." aaron said it was not based on anyone. who did you base it on? >> no one. sorry, keith. we said, let's create somebody completely fictional. and just drop them in the middle of all the guys who exist that we know today. that's what we tried to do. aaron never said, by the way, this is based on so and so. never said it. >> are you a news junkie? >> i have been since about the 2000 election since cable news seemed to grab us and throw us into that 24/7 cycle. i've been a bit addicted. >> this is the first time you've gone out and done a television series, right? >> yeah. it's not for the meek. >> a lot of work? >> a lot of work. and with aaron, because he's so dialogue-heavy. your weekends are spent memorizing the next episode. it was a lot of work. however, it's as challenging a role as i've ever had.
and the show, i hope lasts a long time because it's great work. >> this guy is a complicated man. he's brilliant. he clearly cares about the news. but he's come to love and get comfortable in the life of an anchor. >> yeah. there's a lot of perks. a lot of perks for will mcavoy. at the end of the day, and aaron does this a lot. it's a romantic comedy. it really is. there's this love conquers all thing, between me and emily mortimer, who plays mackenzie. >> no question about it. before you go. we think this is your first appearance on primetime network television. take a look. >> the challenge is against the system. and it's a system that's freaky, kathy. not us. we want what's ours. >> oh, god. >> jeff daniels, "hawaii 5-0." this is your life. you can see him in "the newsroom" sunday nights. >> i still have those glasses. coming up, she's jay-z's hot, new cacacacacacacacacacacaa
