tv Way Too Early MSNBC August 8, 2013 2:30am-3:01am PDT
rubio. we also have the numbers in the $425 million power ball lottery. i'm still here and i'm sober so it wasn't me. this is "way too early." i'd even take the million. for that after taxes, i'd still have to show up for work. i have three cars and a lot of college to pay for. i'm brian shakt man. yes, we do have the cat dressed up as a shark on a rumba. of course we do. we also have how things are getting worse for the new york yankees. we'll have those later in the cooler and in sports. we begin this morning with yet another dangerous summer wildfire in california. the sill vir fire torched thousands of acres in the southern part of the state. the fire already raised 15 homes as 40 mile-per-hour winds spread across the already pretty dry area. first scene on tuesday afternoon, it spread to 6,000
acres in a matter of hours. by night fall, it could be seen glowing in the california hills. almost looks like volcano. some 1500 people and campers have been evacuated. two firefighters and one resident have been injured. there is no love lost between the united states and rush why particularly since edward snowden has been granted temporary asylum by moscow. now the white house is cancelling president obama's planned talks with his russian counterpart. president obama and putin were expected to sit down and discuss among other things serious on going civil war. the kremlin said it is disappointed by the cancellation. the decision was reportedly unanimous by the president's national security team. the political standoff between the two nations rekindles a debate you might recall between mitt romney and president obama during the 2012 campaign. >> this is to russia. this is without question our number one geopolitical poe.
they fight every cause for the world's worst actors, the idea he has month more flexibility in mind for russia is very troubling indeed. >> governor romney, i'm glad that you recognize that al qaeda is a threat because a few months ago when you were asked what's the biggest geopolitical threat facing america, you said russia. not al qaeda. you said russia. and in the 1980s are now calling to ask for their foreign policy back. you know, the cold war has been over for 20 years. >> considered one of the lines that won the election for president obama, actually. white house press secretary jay carney says the u.s. will continue to work with russia on a number of issues. president obama still plans to attend the group of 20 summit in st. petersburg next month. in yemen, more drone strikes this morning as it's still unclear what sort of attack al qaeda is noting there. the government is sending mixed signals about whether the terror group was planning to hit major oil terminal as the spokesman first claimed.
still, there's no doubt that country is a hot bed for violent extremists. the american embassy closed in several locations because of the plot. president obama told troops at camp pendleton that the u.s. does not retreat from the world and does not get terrorized. >> because of you, osama bin laden is no more. because of you, al qaeda's top ranks have been hammered. even as we decimated the al qaeda leadership that attacked us on 9/11, al qaeda affiliates and like minded extremists still threaten our homeland. still threaten our diplomatic facilities. still threaten our businesses abroad. and we've had to take these threats seriously and do all we can to confront them. >> meanwhile, those heavy u.s. drone strikes in yemen continue. according to "the new york times," three strikes this morning have left three people dead. another wednesday killed seven. and a targeted attack on tuesday
killed four people, all said to be working for al qaeda. president obama also addressed another critical issue within the arms forces, its alarming rate of sexual assaults. it follows a recent report that as many as 26,000 instances of the crime went unreported last year, a 35% jump from 2010. the pentagon is reviewing records to screen for past instances of alcohol-related offenses, child abuse and unwanted sexual contact. yesterday the president made clear he is committed to the issue. >> keeping our military strong also means insuring the safety of everyone who puts on the uniform. so i want you to hear it directly from me, the commander in chief -- it undermines what this military stands for and it undermines what the marine corps stands for when sexual assault
takes place within our units. we have new numbers out of new hampshire that are giving us an early look at the state's 2016 presidential primaries. according to the latest granite state poll, chris christie leading the pack among likely republican contenders. christy has 21% support. that is up ten points from april. he's followed by senator rand paul. jeb bush is in third. up five points in the past few months. support for marco rubio, the florida senator, down significantly, knocking him to fifth place in the poll just slightly above ted cruz. favorability points dropped 18 points. on the democrat side. again, it appears to be hillary clinton's nomination to lose. the former secretary of the state ran away from the field, 62% support from likely
democratic voters. that's up only 1% from the 61% in april. she's been dominant since her name started floated for 016. this morning the judge presiding over the court-martial will decide whether to allow the legal counsel to step aside. he is representing himself but has three stand by attorneys who are there to offer advice if he requests it. yesterday one of his lawyers said hassan is deliberately trying to get the death penalty. he says it is contrary to our professional obligations. the lawyer then suggested the lawyers change their rule and say that he didn't need his assistance. the former army psychiatrist faces 13 counts of murder, 32 counts of attempted murder in the 2009 dangerous shooting in ft. hood. three people will share one
of the biggest powerball prizes of all time. there were two in new jersey, nobody won it on the morning show/"way too early" team. two from jersey, one from minnesota split the $448 million. that is before taxes. they're going to share the booty with a lot of people though. 38 other tickets won either $1 million or $2 million. so we'll wait for the next big one. the truth, is the top four lottery prizes of all time have all come since march of 2012. now to business where later this morning we get the weekly unemployment numbers. yesterday all three major indices were in the red. the fears of the fed tapering its bond buying program persists. we have a little negativity in the markets. we have the s&p 500 now ten points below that 1700 mark and the dow jones industrial average below 15,500. let's check this with geoff cutmore. good morning.
>> good morning to you. you know, j.p. morgan just cannot shake off the bogeyman, can it? the latest news they told us that they are being investigated by a unit of the department of justice about the sale of mortgages. we know already that they have some issues around fines related to mortgages. this would appear to be a new investigation into the sale of mortgage-backed security products. so keep an eye on this bank here. they've already given us significant set-asides for potential fines related to this story. we know that they got slapped with $850 million in civil suits earlier this week. there is potentially more litigation around the corner on this mortgage backed security story. who thought it? tesla seemsing to gob from strength to strength. this is a company that's already had 300% upside in the share price year to date. and on better numbers than the analysts were expecting yesterday, they got a 14% pop in
the share price. maybe, brian, electric is the way to go after all. at least that's what the market seems to be saying about tesla. >> i guess they got $450 million net worth for that stock pop yesterday. we talked so much about it over here about that "washington post" sale. one significant newspaper that is really an international name had to come out and talk about its future as well. tell me about that. >> yeah, "the new york times" is not for sale. the man who runs the business says we will not be going on the block. you mention there the washington, the "boston globe" we've seen pass into other hands here. i guess people focused on the old print businesses and whether they'll be moving into dot-com or digital owner hands in the future. not "the new york times" according to management. >> of course, carlos slim tried to swoop in and get some of that newspaper when they were really weak. they fended him off as well. thank you geoff cutmore.
moving on. so there was word paula deen turned down a chance to be on "dancing with the stars." so we thought what other embattled media celebrity could use a bump and take hir place? maybe the tango in front of the world does good things for you. i don't know. tweet us. we'll put the best answers later on the show. a fan storms the pitch in miami. renaldo isn't upset about it. details of the awkward moment just ahead and the discovery channel responds to accusation of viral advertising after a shark is found on a new york city subway. could it be a sign of things to come in the ad world? not sure about that. that and a check on weather when "way too early" comes back.

annoying. it's kind of funny. last night in miami, renaldo led in the championship. he had two goals. an overzealous fan runs on to the field. okay, he was wearing a renaldo jersey. all right. maybe that's why the soccer star does this. i don't know what he is saying. but i mean they're hugging. usually it's like maybe a little light touch. then he gets tackled. he must have said something to him that really got him. that's like a full 15 second bro hug. he's like listen, i won't get you beat up. you need to leave. >> yeah. >> i don't know. maybe it's soccer. with us, that gets a hard takedown and a few punches in the ribs. >> yeah, we've seen bad reaction from soccer players before. renaldo gets like big thumbs up for that, i guess. >> that may be they're long lost cousins.

early polling in new hampshire. i know it's only 2013. but if you want to sound smart today, tell your friends that in 2006, ahead of the new hampshire primary, hillary clinton led the field with 30%. that is more than double john edwards, al gore, john kerry and joe biden. now you know this is one name not on that list, that would be obama because he did not declare his candidacy until 2007. all right. enough of the real news. let's hit the cool er. stephen colbert on higher hourly wages. thousands of states walk out demanding twice the hourly salaries. >> $15 an hour. what do they think? the arches are made of gold? i mean the consequences of a wage increase are horrifying to kplag contemplate. there were 4.4 million front line cashiers, cooks and crew in the fast food industry.

>> brought to you by basic human decency. >> i don't know what to say about that. the mystery of the dead shark found on a new york suby is growing. a passenger snapped this picture before the car was shut down early yesterday morning. many assumed it was a viral promotion for the discovery channel shark week. the network says no go. what? it was your shark? you caught it? barnicle says he caught that shark. he ends the controversy. but another shark was spotted out of the water. this is not barnicle's kitchen en. it's a cat dressed up on a shark on a rumba. this is what my job has come to. he seemed very comfortable cleaning the floor. there is only one explanation for two stories like this coming out on the same day. >> watch out! >> you can't just wait here.
