7:03 am
the largest fire in this part of the rocky mountains in 25 years. what's making it worse is its unpredictable nature. here is how fast it can happen. tw from a two-acre fire first noticed saturday morning in the mountains north of ft. collins, colorado to a 20,000 acre behemoth in one day with zero containment and no signs of slowing down. >> this thing has a mind of its own. it's pretty much telling us what it's going to do. >> reporter: what the high park fire did was ride 25 to 40-mile-an-hour winds through dry timber along steep slopes. a dozen air tankers and choppers were brought in to combat the flames along with more than 250 firefighters on the ground. hundreds were evacuated, some already feeling a sense of loss. >> my house is gone. and now i'm not going to have a home. and i have no place to go. >> reporter: this wasn't the only wildfire in the west. new mexico's little bear fire became another when a stubborn
7:04 am

7:05 am
aircraft and cooler weather. >> charles hadlock. now here's willie. al is upstairs now with more on that wildfire and widespread flooding ravaging parts of florida and alabama. al, good morning. >> good morning, willie. and of course, you're looking at -- this is pensacola, but we want to start first with our grsks from the fires as we talk about that. because, again, the forecast here is whitewater baldi fire, little bear fire and the high park fire. it's a mixed bag. the good news is there's a southeastern flow of higher humidity. so that will help. the bad news, there's a mix of dry and wet thunderstorms. these dry storms, lightning strikes can happen and that can set off more fires, not great news. now we're going to go live down to pensacola, florida, show you what's going on. and first of all, we start with the -- there we go live. we show you the standing water, and there could be more rain coming. this is what they've gotten so far. we've talked about anywhere from 12 to 18 inches of rain. some areas up to 20 inches.
7:06 am
this is why it's so wet. there's a weak surface front, upper-level disturbance, plus this tropical mass coming up. more rain coming. how much more? it's concentrated in the southeast. another one to three inches along the panhandle of florida. also jacksonville will see one to three inches. the heavier rain spreading up into the southeastern atlantic coast. so more wet weather. good news is not enough to hopefully cause any more flooding for our friends in the panhandle. willie? >> all right, al, thank you very much. we'll check back in with you for the rest of the forecast in a bit. meanwhile, the u.s. commerce department has released a statement this morning about secretary john bryson's involvement in two accidents in the l.a. area. according to a spokesperson for the department of commerce, secretary bryson suffered a seizure. chuck todd is nbc's chief white house correspondent with more on this story. chuck, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, willie. here's what happened. on saturday early evening in los angeles, secretary bryson apparently was in three car accidents in the span of five minutes. he hit one car that was stopped
7:07 am
waiting for a train, got out, spoke with folks inside the car, got back in his car, a lexus, hit the car again. and about five minutes down the road, hit another car that apparently was either slowing or stopped as well. well, he was found unconscious in his car, taken to the hospital and treated. and secretary bryson since then, as we know from his folks at the commerce department, he apparently suffered a seizure and has been given medication. he is under investigation at this point for a felony hit-and-run. now, the white house was not informed of any of this for a full 24 hours. it wasn't until sunday evening that they knew any part of this story and what happened. and one of the reasons, by the way, about secretary bryson, why was he driving, willie? well, his u.s. secret service detail doesn't necessarily accompany him home. and when he is at home, they sort of let these cabinet secretary drive themselves if they want to. >> chuck, obviously secretary bryson's got a big job. are there concerns at this point for his health and his ability
7:08 am
to carry out his duties going forward now? >> reporter: well, when you can see in the statement from the commerce department, they made it very clear, he is back at work on his way back to washington, fully released from the hospital. and they're saying the medication has treated all of this. so they're clearly trying to send a signal, willie, that he is fully capable of holding this job and doing the duties that are necessary. >> let's hope he's okay. chuck todd live for us this morning in washington. chuck, thanks so much. it is now 7:08 pacific time. and here again is ann. >> all right, willie, thank you. opening statements are being held today at the child sex abuse trial of former penn state university football coach jer abuse trial of former penn state football coach jerry sandusky. nbc's national correspondent michael isikoff at the courthouse this morning. michael, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, ann. while jerry sandusky goes on trial here today, charged with repeatedly molesting young boys, law enforcement sources are telling nbc news, that pennsylvania prosecutors are weighing bringing more charges
7:09 am
in this case against former top penn state officials for allegedly concealing what they knew about his conduct. as sandusky goes to court, law enforcement sources tell nbc news that state investigators recently obtained major new evidence in this case. internal e-mails and documents they say show former president graham spanier and others discussed whether they needed to tell local authorities about a 2001 allegation involving a late night encounter between a naked sandusky and a young boy in the penn state shower room. the sources say documents show penn state even did legal research on the issue.wo legal sources say spanier and former vice president gary schultz agreed it would be, quote, humane un, quote, to sandusky not to inform social services and the incident never got reported. >> depending on precisely what's in the e-mails and documents, this could spell more legal trouble for other university
7:10 am
officials. >> reporter: sandusky who denies all charges is facing 52 counts of child sex abuse. eight of his alleged victims are slated to testify. among them, a young man known as victim six who first told penn state police in 1998 when he was 11 years old, that sandusky had bear hugged him in the penn state shower room. dr. chambers, the boy's psychologist, submitted this report to penn state police at the time concluding sandusky's behavior fit that of a likely pedophile's pattern. >> i immediately thought this may well be a child molester. >> reporter: but a second psychologist reached a different conclusion and no charges were filed. then graduate assistant mike mcqueary had originally testified to a grand jury he saw sandusky in the shower with a young boy in march 2002. but the newly discovered e-mails show spanier, schultz and former athletic director tim curly discussed what mcqueary saw and whether to report it, more than a year earlier.
7:11 am
>> at a minimum the evidence would suggest these penn state officials took that from mcqueary than they led the grand jury to believe. >> lawyers for spanier, who was fired last september, did not return calls seeking comment. lawyers for schultz and curly, facing perjury charges, said the information confirms that their clients, consciencely considered mike mcqueary's reports of observing inappropriate conduct, reported it to the university president graham spanier and deliberated about how to responsibly deal with the conduct. legal sources say the discovery of the e-mails show that whatever happens in the sandusky trial, the investigation into whether there was a cover-up by penn state officials is very active and going strong. ann? >> more to come on this. michael isikoff, thank you very much. >> let's get a check of the morning's other top stories. for that we send it over to the news desk where we find natalie morales. good morning. >> good morning. a manhunt under way in alabama
7:12 am
as investigators search for a man who they say shot and killed three two of the dead were former football players for the school. according to witnesses the shooting started after the fight broke out at a pool party. we'll have much more on this story coming up in a live report. global markets are soaring on this first day of trading since the bailout for spain was announced. cnbc's mandy drury has the latest on how that could impact our economy today. good morning. >> good morning. u.s. stocks had their best weekly performance of the year last week, and so this spanish bailout is a positive development that could really help kickstart our stocks this week as well. essentially what happened, european finance ministers cut a deal over the weekend to bail out spanish banks by lending spain $125 billion. at least in the short-term -- long-term we'll have to see -- g term we'll have to see, but in the short term, this helps our stocks, our economy especially as washington is concerned that the ongoing european debt crisis could drag the u.s. economy down
7:13 am

presidential candidate. these days republicans are convinced mitt romney has both. this week the romney campaign will again try to capitalize on the president's poorly timed misstep friday. just days after the unemployment rate rose for the first time in nearly a year. >> the private sector is doing fine. >> reporter: president obama talking about private sector growth versus public sector, later clarified. >> it is absolutely clear that the economy is not doing fine. >> reporter: but republicans, including romney, pounced. >> is he really that out of touch? >> reporter: this week he's trying to drive the point home. >> we've seen layoffs, cutbacks. >> when it's all said and done, i'm making $200 a month. >> reporter: the romney campaign is slamming the president in a new web video, rolling out eight americans still struggling with the economy. the campaign followed up with an e-mail blast trying to raise money off the remark. still top republicans say romney has more work to do. >> the american people will
7:18 am
rightly demand to know something more than he's not president obama. he better have an affirmative constructive message and one of hope. >> reporter: the president still leads in the polls, if only slightly. and team obama is seizing on what it sees as another romney gaffe. >> he says we need more firemen, more policemen, more teachers, did he not get the message of wisconsin? the american people did. it's time for us to cut back on government and help the american people. >> i would suggest he's living on a different planet if he thinks that's a prescription for a better economy. >> reporter: one of the key communities president obama is counting on this fall is hispanics. he has a wide lead among them, but it's a demographic the obama re-election team knows it cannot take for granted. this morning to solidify, supporters are launching a $4 million spanish language ad campaign. here's a brief look at it. it attacks romney. the ads will air all summer long and in three key battlegrounds where they have large hispanic
7:19 am
populations, colorado, nevada, and florida. ann? >> all right. peter alexander this morning. peter, thank you for your reporting. meghan mccain daughter of republican senator john mccain and her new book has a racy title which i'm not shire i can say in full, it's called "america you sexy" rhymes with "witch." and also kris heys, the author of "twilight of the elites," good morning to both of you. >> good morning. >> comparisons are being made this morning, actually over the weekend, to the president's private sector is doing fine remark and your father's remark four years ago where senator john mccain declared the fund mentals of the economy are strong when, in fact, wall street was collapsing. how damaging do you think the president's remark will be to his campaign? will be to his campaign. >> i think we need to keep in mind one sentence won't make or break any campaign or presidency. all that being said, it with you not a great time for him to make that statement and i think it has done a lot of damage this week.
7:20 am
>> how much hay can be made as we move forward, chris? >> i think megan is right in the big problem for john mccain in 2008 was the objective conditions of the economy and the challenge that the president faces is actually the unemployment rate. whatever he says or doesn't say about it, at the end of the day that's what's going to drive voters. that's the far bigger concern than the comment. i think they're going to try to make hay out of it. i would say, the point he's making about the difference between where the private sector and public sector is at is a really important one. we've lost 600,000 in the public in the sector since the beginning of the recession largely on the local and state level. that didn't have to happen. those layoffs didn't have to happen if we extended revenue sharing from the government. >> he is right in saying that the private sector is doing better than the public sector, is he not? >> yeah. >> that was his point, this comment was taken out of context. >> i think it's important to distinguish between what's going on with state and local governments and what's going on in the private sector. i think the word fine in that context is like if you fell and
7:21 am
gashed your head and you were bleeding and your friend said are you okay and you said i'm fine. >> >> still comes off insensitive. to all the workers that are being shown in the romney ads, it comes off as incentive and out of touch. >> romney might be making a lot of comments about this since the president made the comment. he's basically trying to present the idea that this is a window into how president obama thinks. what's your sense about that? do you think this ad's ammunition to his idea this is how the president actually thinks? >> i think it can be seen as sort of a lens into what president obama thinks. that being said, what chris and i are reiterating, we both work in the media, one sentence on the variables of the economy. >> let's talk about a comment your father made, saying politically motivated. in fact, over the weekend he also went on to say that they were possibly leaked by the white house.
7:22 am
i guess the question is, is there any proof to back up these charges? >> well, i don't know of any proof. i think when there's a leak like this you have to look and see who is benefiting and the president is benefitting from this. i had a conversation with my father last night and he said this is the worst security breach he's seen in his entire career. for me that sends chills up and down my spine about what we have given the terrorists and our enemies through the security leaks and whomever is doing this is not putting their country first and thinking about america and the safety of our troops. >> we need more leaks and not less. i think that we should know how the war is operating and what's going on with a kill list that's operating out of the white house or what covert activities we're engaged in. >> i know you're not going to agree or disagree. >> we'll agree to disagree. >> thank you so much this morning. for your perspective on this topic. coming up, a disturbing new account of mary kennedy's personal struggles leading up to her suicide. what her estranged husband robert f. kennedy, jr., claimed

8:14 am
people don't remember we've been friends for 35 years. we see each other all the time. it wasn't like we hadn't seen each other for 20 years. friendships reigniting. to get to work together again was the good part. >> the show continues, not a reinvention. >> it's as if you didn't tune in for 20 years and you were on the wrong channel. you turn to the right channel and here we are. everything is exactly as it would be 20 years later. it's a perfect continuation. we consider this year 14. >> larry, did you have concerns about bringing this back? it's kind of like you walk away from something so great, beloved, so perfect. why go back to it again? >> money. >> i knew we were going to get these kinds of answers out of larry today. >> they had to pay a lot of money because they have got you in a nursing home. is that right? that's how we start. not so shocking now that i
8:15 am
mention it. >> it doesn't last long, i'll tell you that much. >> that's a great moment. we don't want to give too much away. j.r. snaps out of it and we know he's back, patrick. >> the first scene i did after not working with him for 20 years, to go into that room and have that scene with larry. it was poignant for me to do that. plus we had to do it about 20 times. it got a little old after a while. it was the beginning of the new "dallas" for me to do that scene with him. >> with the new "dallas," my guess is there's kind of a sense that each one of these characters has evolved. i'm guessing. has j.r. evolved? >> yeah, he's gotten meaner. >> seriously? he's gotten meaner. >> yeah. and he teaches his son how to be mean, too. >> sue ellen, how about your character. >> i took it very seriously. >> how is sue ellen. >> she's changed a lot, because i looked at the character and i thought she will have changed,
8:16 am
everybody has changed in the last 20 years. so i thought, okay, i didn't want to sashay down the driveway and say i know this cashing, i can play her very cool. she changed. really i love her right now. i loved her then and i love her now. she's really a much different person. >> she's not wearing shoulder pads. >> no shoulder pads for one and hair has gotten a little less wild and crazy. >> patrick, have you allowed yourself over the last 20 years to step back and think about what this show meant? you look at the numbers for who shot jl r., 83 or 90 million people. those are super bowl numbers. >> you can't do that now. there's too many choices. we were looking in the paper sitting around the hotel looking at the tv section which covers now an entire piece of the "new york times." when we were doing "dallas," it was four channels. that's all the choice you had. so your numbers were automatically larger. but who shot j.r. was trend setting even today. nobody can touch those numbers. >> brenda, you play bobby's new
8:17 am
wife ann. in that way, then, was it difficult or easy stepping into that role with such an established set of characters, people who really know this role and have done it so many times. >> they make it easy. >> she has a -- >> brenda has laryngitis. >> i can talk about me for her. >> i thought you sounded pretty good there. we won't make you talk much more. there is a clip. it's not the first time you've actually been in this series. you're in a clip. we're going to let people lib to it now and let them watch you play somebody else. >> last night was so wonderful and you're so wonderful, i just want to do something nice for you. >> there you go. >> come a long way. >> that's how you sound.
8:18 am
now everybody at home can know how you sound. >> getting to the back row now. we've got the newbies here with us, the next generation of ewing. it seems to me, josh, you've stepped right into the shoes of j.r. you've kind of taken on his personality. that's not a compliment, by the way. >> big shoes to fill. i was a little nervous, a little intimidated coming into this show, such a big deal, well loved around the world. i was extremely excited to get the opportunity. a lot of people wanted to be on the show. the new young cast was very blessed. i get to play j.r. and sue ellen's son. >> what was that scene like, not giving too much away, in the home you're sitting across from j.r. ewing and, boom, he snaps to life. >> it was electrifying. when he steps on set, it really kind of consumes the room. my first scene with him, i remember just staring at him. it was my turn to talk and i literally forgot to talk.
8:19 am
j.r. this is unbelievable i'm sitting here across from him in a scene as his son. he has an intense energy and it's a really magnetic thing. it's magic for me to get to play ball with him. >> larry, do you want to react to that? that's a lot of love he's given you. >> you're not kidding. i didn't know the kid felt that way about me. >> all you were doing is sleeping. >> it was an easy scene for me to play, that's for sure. i didn't say a word. >> you're not a stranger to nighttime soaps, having done work on "desperate housewives." what attracted you to the project? >> the writing. i was skeptical, of course, too, if it was a good idea to bring back an iconic show. once they give it their stamp of approval i knew the script was on par. after reading the script i loved the storytelling, especially the character of christopher. they were well developed, complex. it's an amazing thing to be part
8:20 am
of. >> you play elaina. tell us about her story, she has a history. >> i'm the cook's daughter. i grew up with these two boys in the middle of the love triangle. i have a pretty juicy, fun role. >> i imagine. >> i'm quite lucky. >> juicy. >> julie, what about you? how do you fit into this puzzle, an outsider coming in. >> i'm the newbie of the family. i play rebecca, who is engaged to christopher. yes, so she's introduced in the pilot and trying to fit in with the ewing clan and make her way into the family and feel comfortable, especially after she had -- she used to be engaged to my husband, so it's a little intense moments. it's fun. she's trying to make her man happy. >> now, is it true after you were all cast that you were invited by larry over to his
8:21 am
house for dinner and checked out the memorabilia? do you want to tell us a little about that. >> we were summoned. >> he doesn't ask. >> i got excited to see his "i dream of jeannie" bottles. >> bottles, more than one. >> there's a couple. >> we went around, oh, my god, larry's house. >> he has photographs of himself everywhere in the world. he's in a gondola in venice in hat and boots. the most interesting man in the world. >> linda, was there anybody you had to sort of do arm twisting with? anybody you had to pull along on the project or did everybody get excited about it? >> did i drag you in? >> kicking and screaming. >> he always asks me, should i do something or not do something. i'm ratting on you now. it's true. he calls me and says, should i do this, should i do that. i always say yes and he does it.
8:22 am
>> you hesitated, larry, at the idea. >> yeah. it was strange getting back into the swing of things. but we all fit into the characters, nothing to worry about that. i don't know. i just wanted to clear it with these two guys here first. >> apparently you did. you're on television. it's exciting to see all of you. looks like you're having fun together. >> first rule on the set. >> can you assure us of one thing, it won't be a dream. >> if we can get numbers out of it -- >> all right. the cast of "dallas," thank you so much. want to mention the series premier is wednesday night on tnt. back with much more after local news and weather. ncer... i needed a coach. our doctor was great, but with so many tough decisions i felt lost. unitedhealthcare offered us a specially trained rn who helped us weigh and understand all our options. for me cancer was as scary as a fastball is to some of these kids.
