fairly early on. the first couple days. >> not before that, though? not before october 1st, there was no concern at the white house or at hhs? >> i think we talked about having testing going forward. there were certainly challenges that could be smoother and it could be easier to access and that's what we are working on. >> sebelius will testify before congress next week, and in the meantime the president has appointed jeff zink. the white house says there is a white gap between u.s. assessments of casualties and nongovernment reports. >> to the extent these reports claim that the u.s. has acted
concary to enter law, i would disagree. we are choosing the course of action least likely to the result in the loss of life. a strike in pakistan killed a grandmother in view of her grandchildren. nuclear facilities are supposed to be among the nation's highly guarded and now four air officers are being punished for being the blast doors open. they were deliberately left open while one of the two crew members slept inside. that's according to the associated press. the two incidents happened this year and while the violations are not criminal air force

the worst is probably over, veronica. >> we appreciate it. thank you so much. >> let's check in with my good friend, richer louie, where he is standing by with sports and cocktails, right? >> we are going to get to that, veronica. tonight's world series will be like a blind date. these teams have not seen each other in years. and the concerns started at least four years ago. tuesday, miami university's football and basketball programs now cited for a decade of violation. they will lose nine football scholarships and get three years probation, and it was on allegations that boosters gave hundreds of thousands to

bit of shower activity out there. southern side of d.c. through maryland, light rain and that will head into delaware and new jersey during the day. not a lot of rain, and tonight that will move up towards boston, and for the baseball game there could be a little damp weather. and then the colder weather is going through the great lakes, and the highs 44 degrees with a little sun and then the cold air will arrive in the northeast, and then you notice the southern half of the country, the western half of the nation looks fine today, so the only people complaining about the cold is the great lakes and the northeast. >> i am going to miami. and the royal chrissening of prince george. ♪

good morning. >> reporter: good morning. >> let's start with obama care. the most read piece is about president obama's biggest credit, and it's not ted cruz or mcmcconnell, but it's actually jon stewart. how much influence did he have here? >> i think it's a lot more than people recognize. i think it's not just jon stewart but the late-night kau immediateens, and "saturday night live," and this is where a lot of people who don't watch the news or read the "washington post" or watch msnbc are getting their news and the way in which jon stewart present the news in particular is a lot of how young people are consuming news, and young people in particular are very important to obama care, and they are the people that
need to sign up, and the fact that jon stewart is being critical of the way this health care law has been rolled out i don't think should be under sold. >> in earlier shows he has been in support of obama care. are you saying that a lot of damage has been done? >> i think, you know, it's clear that he is in favor of the idea, and he is just very frustrated by the rollout and the way the website has been handled in particular. i think, you know, if anything that might be a little more difficult for the administration to handle because people see a supporter of this, a very high-profile supporter of the law, spending one-third of the show talking about how poorly it's going. i think as far as a gauge of how far this is going and whether they are improving or not, people can keep an eye on how he is talking about it on a nightly basis. >> we appreciate your insight. thank you. >> thank you.
