paula deen's backfiring. she had two awkward videos online, apologizing for racist comments she made in the past. moments later, the network announced it won't be renewing her contract. abc's steve osunsami joins us now with the story. good morning, steve. >> reporter: good morning, bianna. for paul a deen, this is the definition of damage control. it was a deposition, her own words, that started this fire. >> inappropriate, hurtful language is totally, totally unacceptable. >> reporter: the normally cheery and folksy self-described queen of southern cooking, begging for forgiveness, saying she's caused herself tremendous pain, insisting she doesn't discriminate. >> i want to apologize to everybody, for the wrong that i've done. >> reporter: she first put out a short, edited statement on
4:03 am
youtube but quickly took it down. and replaced it with a longer, more natural and vigorous apology. >> i spent the best of 24 years to help myself and others. your color of your skin, your religion, your sexual preference, does not matter. >> reporter: in the transcripts of a recorded deposition for a lawsuit filed against her by a former employee, deen admits she once suggested to an assist, that she hire middle-aged black men to dress up in white jackets and black bow ties for an old plantation civil war wedding. she said she looked the look. but she didn't mean anything derogatory. she was asked have you ever used the "n" word yourself? yes. but it's been a really long time. >> from a p.r. point of view, this is a disaster on every level. >> it's so good. >> reporter: deen's apologies
4:04 am
weren't enough for her tv home, the food network, announcing it will not renew paula deen's contract when it expires at the end of this month. her nearly $16 million empire of food products and recipes could take a hit. on twitter, they're saying her apology is going over like burnt cornbread. her fans are split. you should be ashamed. you made a mistake. you should not have your whole life and career destroyed because of it. carla hall of "the chew" is also a supporter. i love you and support you, paula deen. she was a student of deen's. here's what's at the heart of this. for so very long, deen has been the ambassador for all things good and delicious about the south. but what's happened this week has reminded everyone what's not so good about the south's history. dan? >> burnt cornbread. steve osunsami, thank you. overseas, we're getting stunning new information about a harrowing scene that played out when nelson mandela was rushed
4:05 am
to the hospital earlier this month. this morning the nobel peace prize winner is in serious but stable condition in a hospital in south africa. but wait until you hear what happened with the ambulance who took him here. brandi hitt is outside of that hospital in pretoria. good morning. >> reporter: good morning, dan. we learned the military ambulance carrying nelson mandela to the hospital broke down along the way. and mandela had to wait for a second ambulance. the 94-year-old former president was rushed to the hospital exactly two weeks ago today, when his health deteriorated rapidly. sprin government officials tell abc news, the military ambulance suffered engine trouble on june 8th and broke down. officials, though, will not say how long mandela had to wait for the second military ambulance to arrive. but they insist he had a full medical team with him the entire time during the transfer. and they say his health was not placed at further risk. still, he has remained in the hospital here for 15 days now,
4:06 am
in serious but stable condition. just two days ago, former south african president, thabo mbeki, told the nation that mandela's health is improving. but government officials are releasing very few details. and they've not been told when mandela will be released from the hospital. dan? >> so many questions. why are we just hearing about this ambulance breaking down 14 days later? we're going to turn to new developments involving nsa whistle-blower edward snowden, officially charged with espionage this morning. the man who leaked some of the government's biggest secrets is still believed to be hiding in hong kong. and u.s. prosecutors want him back. gloria rivera joins us live from hong kong. good morning, gloria. >> reporter: there's heightened drama in hong kong where edward's days could be numbered. it's believed that the young man is holed up somewhere at a secret location in this vast city. but he could soon be forced out,
4:07 am
if hong kong authorities, that is, can find him. u.s. officials have now asked hong kong police to arrest edward snowden. but officials here have been almost silent, saying only they will act in accordance with the law. despite the warrant for his arrest, edward snowden has options. he could flee if another country would take him. he could also seek asylum. but that could trigger a legal process that could take months or some say years. snowden is entitled to legal representation here for free. one legislator told me that if snowden makes an appeal against extradition, it could reach hong kong's highest court. and that process could take five years or more. really, without an unusual step, very unusual by china's government or hong kong's, it could still be some time before edward snowden is back on u.s. soil. bianna? dan? >> a thorny situation for the u.s. president having to deal with global leaders this week in europe. our thanks to gloria.
4:08 am
>> and for the government of china. going to be tough for them, as well. a lot of other news overnight. but ron claiborne is off this morning. gio benitez is filling in. great to have you on the broadcast. >> it's so nice to be here with good friends. >> loving that smile here. >> let's get right to that news. we begin this morning with big delays for southwest nights. overnight, a computer glitch grounded the airline's entire fleet. in all, 57 flights have been canceled this morning. the glitch impacted everything from flight check-ins to printing boarding passes. a company spokesperson said even with a backup system running, expect delays today. and raging wildfires are forcing hundreds to evacuate the popular camping resort of south fork, colorado. the town is featured in popular movies. but this morning, officials fear the fire could ruin everything. >> reporter: this morning, the town is hoping the inferno can
4:09 am
be stopped. walls of flame charges through 60-square miles of forest. south fork thought it was doomed. >> lots of plumes. >> reporter: roughly 400 residents, along with hundreds more summer tourists made a break from the town, which often serves as a hollywood backdrop. but overnight, the evacuees damaged a fiery bullet, catching a break from a shift in the wind. >> our biggest concern at this point, is to get ourselves out of south fork, colorado. >> reporter: rodney reid stied behind. threatening the family grocery store that's been around since 1946. >> we're trying to be here in case we need to provide supplies to the firefighters and law enforcement personnel that are trying to save our town. >> reporter: south fork is partly famous for its cameos. in "national lampoon's vacation," it's where the
4:10 am
griswolds came to camp. and where the lone ranger and tonto came to film their new movie. and south fork is wishing apocalyptic scenes like this were only a special effect. for "good morning america," clayton sandell, abc news, denver. now, to a shooting rampage in north carolina, where four people were hurt. police say a man armed with a shotgun first shot someone outside of a law firm in greenville. he then crossed a busy five-lane road and shot three more people outside of a walmart before police took him down. no word this morning on his motive. an employee at an exotic animal refuge is in critical condition this morning after she was attacked by a tiger. take a look. 21-year-old marissa dubb. she was cleaning the cage at the refuge in center point, indiana, when she was attacked. police say she forgot to close the gate. so, she and that tiger ended up in the same part of the cage. witnesses say the animal had
4:11 am
dubb's head in its mouth. she had a fractured jaw and other injuries. but she is expected to survive. and finally, police officers never know what to expect when they pull over a car. but a passenger in the backseat gave one officer in texas a big surprise. take a look at this video. you can see officer keith moore, yeah, handing the driver a ticket. and then, he's bitten by a monkey. it turns out, it was a trained monkey who performs at carnivals. officer moore is fine. he wasn't seriously hurt. both he and his partner, though, they thought it was pretty funny. i'm thinking community service for that monkey. >> yeah. exactly. >> you come to expect a lot of things to pop out of cars. but not a monkey. >> not that monkey. >> gio, thank you. for some fliers, it is the single-most annoying part of air travel. you're in a satisfying tweet, e-mail, or video game of a youtube clip of a monkey biting a cop, when the flight crew makes you shut off your device.
4:12 am
for so long, so many of us have wondered, do our blackberries, kindles, ipads and the like, mess things up in the cockpit? now, change could be on the way. and reena ninan is at reagan national airport in washington, d.c. this morning. good morning. >> reporter: good morning, dan. there's always one more e-mail to send before you take off. and an advisory committee is looking into whether or not the influence of small electronics affects the situation on a plane. and while these changes are not official, some are already saying they've been long overdue. >> welcome aboard. and thanks for flying with delta. >> reporter: when it comes to flight safety, we're usually happy to follow the rules. >> make sure your seat belt is fastened. >> reporter: all but one. >> and ensure your mobile phones and electronic devices are turned off. >> reporter: the 50-year-old ban on electronics was mocked in "men in black 3." >> i'm not turning my cell phone off. it has nothing to do with no airplane. this is what we get.
4:13 am
it bounces around on the satellites and blam. turn your damn cell phone off. >> reporter: on friday, news broke that the faa may allow some devices. like e readers, games, movies, tablets to be used during taxiing and takeoff. >> so, a cell phone can potentially have more power transmitting its signals. >> reporter: welcome news for actor alec baldwin, kicked off an american airlines flight in 2011, refusing to turn off his phone while playing words with friends before takeoff. >> not any game, mind you. but a word game for smart people. >> reporter: after all, pilots can use ipads in the cockpit to look at maps and manuals. sure beats the backup plan from "airplane." if the faa accepts the suggestions, you might be able to play angry birds during takeoff. but the ban on cell phones is expected to continue.
4:14 am
that may be that's a good thing. >> excuse me? you're not supposed to be on your phone. it's bad for the plane. >> oh, i'm sorry. are you a plane doctor? >> reporter: so annoying the cell phones. ultimately, it will be up to the faa to decide what to do. now, if only they could figure out how we can keep our shoes on during the security checkout lines, really important. >> one step at a time. are you a plane doctor, i like that. do you know when this is going to become implemented if they do pass it? >> reporter: it will be up to the faa to decide whether to take the recommendations and whether or not to move forward. but there is a lot of pressure from travelers to try and allow some of the smallest devices, since there really isn't concrete proof that it's affected the use of the airplane in flight. >> music to so many people's ears, including dans. i'm curious to see the satisfying tweets and e-mails. >> right now, as a matter of fact. we're going to turn to an

back then, craft said the ring was a gift. but now says he said that only after the white house feared asking for it back with would be a diplomatic debacle. a kremlin aide says the ring was definitely a gift. calling craft's claims, weird. on friday, putin was sarcastic when asked about the scandal. >> translator: if it's such a big value for mr. craft and for teams, i have a suggestion to make. >> reporter: his idea, make him another ring so blinged out, he'll forget about the old one. the old ring had a mere 124 diamonds, totally just 5 carats. putin's snarky suggestion -- >> translator: i will ask our manufacturers to produce a really good visibly valuable thing, made out of very good metal. >> reporter: a ring so much better, this time, craft won't let it out of his sight. the ring is reportedly somewhere
4:17 am
