tv Way Too Early MSNBC October 25, 2013 5:30am-6:00am EDT
he was planting the bug. unbelievable. >> germany and france not too happy. we have been listening on their conversations and now they want a meeting to air out their grievanc grievances. and itunes, now google and youtube wants a piece of the music business and it won't be for free. the red sox make the mistakes, and this time it costs them the win. this is "way too early." good morning, everybody. it's friday, october 25th. in a few minutes we will have details on hillary getting heckled in a speech. we will have sports highlights. lawmakers from both parties are
calling for somebody to be held accountable over the flawed rollout of healthcare.gov. she said the majority of people calling for me to resign are the people i don't work for and do not want this program to work in the first place. meanwhile, contractors that worked on the website face the ire of several members of congress. >> ebay doesn't crash before christm christmas. >> neither you or anybody else at the table never thought to go forward because you didn't think the system was ready, is that a correct statement? >> did any of you come forth to the administration and say this thing may not be ready on october 1st, and we might want a delay until we can get it right? any hands up? either you didn't know about the
problems or you knew about them and chose not to disclose them. which one is it? >> all of the concerns we had which were most related to testing and the inability to get as much testing as we would like, we expressed those -- >> they claim each of their individual parts work but when put together they were unable to function properly. now, not everybody was happy with some of the questioning, and there was one exchange in particular that got a little heated. >> but you are telling every american if you sign up for this or attempt to, you have no reason expectation of privacy, and is that a direct contradiction to hippa, and you know it. >> i started out in my opening statement saying there was no legitimacy to this hearing and last line of the questioning certainly confirms that. hippa only applies when there is health information being provided and that's not in play
here today. no health information is required in the application process. why is that? because preexisting conditions don't matter. so once again, here we have my republican colleagues trying to scare everybody -- >> well, will the gentleman yield -- >> i will not yield to this money court. i am not yielding. >> president obama looking to shift the national dialogue from obama care to immigration. he is calling for house republicans to act on the bipartisan bill passed in the senate this past june. >> just because something is smart and fair and good for the economy and supported by business and labor, and the evangelical community and many democrats and republicans, that does not mean it will actually get done. this is washington, after all. >> i am not running for office again. i think it's the right thing to
do. so now it's up to republicans in the house to decide whether reform becomes a reality or not. >> let's not wait. it doesn't get easier to just put it off. let's do it now. let's not delay. let's get this done. let's do it in a bipartisan fashion. >> new document from edward snowden published suggest the nsa monitored the calls of 35 world leaders and their contact info came from another u.s. government official. president obama showed merkel over the week that the u.s. was not currently monitoring her calls. merkel said soothing words would not be enough, that true change was necessary. meanwhile, a former nsa found himself being monitored on the phone in public. michael hayden was loudly bashing the obama administration in an interview on background while on an amtrak train.
and tom matzie tweeted everything he was saying. he gave disparaging quotes about the obama administration. he speculated at one point he might be caught for the live tweeting, which he was, but it seems to have ended well. he chatted, and matzie called hayden, a gentleman. and then hillary, a heckler wanted to discuss benghazi. >> buffalo is a good model for the country. we can't move from prices to crisis, we have to be willing to come together as citizens to focus on the kind of future we want, which doesn't include yelling, it includes sitting down and talking with one
another. >> she handled that pretty well. it's hard to hear but local reporters say he was reporting benghazi, benghazi, you let them die. >> and then lightning rod for conservative said he would back hillary to run for president. and then chism who is pleading not guilty was held without bail. he is 14 years old. his teacher asked the teenager to stay after school to get help for an upcoming test. her body was found on wednesday morning, and it's believed chism got fast-food and went to a nearby theater to watch "blue jasmine" after committing the crime. grief counselors have spoken to hundreds of students and parents as the community tries to return to some sense of normalcy.
>> one national guardsman in custody and two more injured after an altercation in tennessee. it's not clear what started the incident, but one of the guardsmen, a recruiter pulled a handgun out and shot the other two who were his superiors in the leg and foot. the suspect is in the brig, and he had been with the national guard for six years. two american sailors have been kidnapped off the nigerian coast. the navy is attempting search and rescue for the captain and engineer. "the new york times" reports the ship a 200-foot supply ship, the kind that is becoming increasingly pop target for attacks by pirates in that
region. and then enough for a nuclear bomb in one month. there has been mixed assessments about tehran's abilities. the white house pressing for more time to negotiate while some members of congress looking to tighten already tough sanctions on that country. israel vowed military action to keep iran from obtaining the bomb. here in the u.s., the statistics on prescription drug abuse are startling. prescription pills account for 75% of deadly drug overdoses and now the fda trying to do something about it. the government is moving forward on a plan to tighten controls on painkillers that contain the narcotic, hydrocodone. there will be limits on how many
pills somebody can obtain without a prescription. let's go to business where the dow and s&p on track. closed high yesterday. encouraging data out of china. let's go to london with jeff. >> let's see if i can do this in 140 characters are less. twitter ipo pricing $20 a share or thereabouts raise about $11 billion or values the company at 11 billion, and conservative prized, and avoid facebook snafu -- >> that would be two tweets. >> i wrecken i just about did it. >> that was two tweets, two and
a quarter. that was a solid effort on twitter. people are excited about this, and it's probably going to go up a fair amount on day one. >> yeah, there's a lot of talk there is a $10 up side priced into this at this stage. the one thing you have to remember is this company still doesn't make profit, and i know for the techie investors, they say focus on the future and don't focus on the now, but it's worth bearing in mind before you run out there, to -- >> amazon is not making much money either, and people like to invest in that stock? >> fascinating story, isn't it? this is the third quarter of losses from amazon, and yet the top line on the business is phenomenal. $17 billion booked here, and strong expectations on the sales line come into the fourth quarter, and of course as we
know they are investigating in warehouses to shorten the postage time and to reduce the cost and they are heavily investing in the new kindle range, of course, and the techie investor would say putting the money in for the long term return. >> yeah, jeff, quickly, youtube wants to get into the music business but it's a paid subscription. give us details. >> $10 is what is being talked about. but this is a chance for youtube to make a big play for the digital music story. >> have a great weekend. thank you from london. we told you about the latest spying revelations about the nsa, and it's a friday, thought we would have a little fun, tongue and cheek. if you could listen to anybody's conversations, who would it be and why? we have a fair amount of good candidates in the hopper.
the "national anthem." >> and then a 2-1 sox lead. and then a double steal. good baseball. a walk then loads the bases, and ma matt carpenter at the plate. and here is the throw, and tied game. now the runner down to third -- the throw gets away and the cardinals will take the lead. >> that was ugly. they would not have had him at home, anyway. but the throw to third got the run. game one, never even happened. they go back to st. louis with an advantage now. they wiped out home field. >> that was the first time the pitcher started.
he was good. to face him in game six, you don't want to do that again. >> would jon lester, the red so pitcher in game one, his performance being called into question. a minor leaguer posted a video that appears to show lester repeatedly touching a substance inside of his glove. some speculate it could have been vaseline, and lester responded saying i saw the pitcher, i don't know what that is, looks like a giant bbooger, and it to be rosin, and rubbing your fingers in there could be a different color. >> belichick, red sox players -- >> the cardinals general manager
says it's a nonissue. the team is not concerned. >> do they teach their kids to teach up there? >> everybody cheats in baseball, and bill karins needs to shut it. and then football, a clinchle score, 31-13. the buccaneers are winless. 0-7, and they are only one of two teams to not win a game in the nfl. bill, at least be rational with your hatred of the red sox and the fact they are in the world series. >> i respect them. >> bite your tongue. >> it's going to be fun. good theater, right? it's going to be great. weekend looks nice for all of you out there. the leaves are still at their peak in a few spots.
it's a cold morning as advertised east of the rockies. there's a chill in the air. 31 in nashville. the chill made it all the way down into the southeast, and not tonight, but tonight we have freeze warnings down to atlanta tonight. that's a cold blast of wind this time of year. and then near the great lakes, maybe a little snow. it's going to be a nice afternoon with a lot of sunshine out there. the chill is not too bad. up in new england in the 50s and 40s, and much of the midwest will be nice. the only spot that will get more rain than you would like, texas from san antonio to houston, periods of rain saturday and sunday. and then you get a cold break and then it quickly ends. it's long lasting into next week. >> yeah. thank you, bill. appreciate it. coming up to the top of the hour, pointing fingers down in d.c. a hearing to figure out the root of the problem with the health
care website. what is next in figuring out what went wrong? when we come back we will have around the cooler. colbert is hot about changing the uniform and he is not taking it quietly. "way too early" will be right back. [ woman #1 ] why do i cook? because an empty pan is a blank canvas. [ woman #2 ] to share a moment. [ woman #3 ] to travel the world without leaving home. [ male announcer ] whatever the reason. whatever the dish. make it delicious with swanson. [ male announcer ] whatever the reason. whatever the dish. hall we do is go out to dinner.? that's it? i mean, he picks up the tab every time, which is great...what? he's using you. he probably has a citi thankyou card and gets 2x the points at restaurants.
at the top of the show, we talk about new regulations for prescription painkillers in the u.s. if you want to sound smart today, tell your friends prescription painkillers count for more deaths than cocaine. that is according to the medical journal. enough of the real news, let's go over to mr. lewis. >> let's start with pigeon racing. it's in europe and belgium. just when you thought some things were truly sacred in the sports, there are some allegations some birds have been doping. six pigeons have tested positive for cocaine and painkillers. can you make a lot of money breeding these birds. a prize pigeon was sold for
$4,000. we are tracking the story for developments, but so far it's not clear if a-rod is involved in the bird doping scandal. and then colbert is up in arms. >> they are spending millions to buy the marines new hats, or as they call them, new covers. not many want to wear them. some of the people think the hat looks too girlie. >> let's see this new gurley hat kau tat trau fee next to the new design. >> oh, oh, my god, look at that. i just cannot tell which one is the new one. which one is -- oh, it's the one on the right. yeah, yeah, i hate those. it's so feminine. i am ovulating looking at them.
and then finally jimmy kimmel is looking at a super fan. >> there was a diehard super fan, and he wanted to go to game one but his boss would not give him the night off because he did not give enough notice or something like that, so he went to the game anyway with this sign, and it says "i quit my job for this," and they asked if he was worried about it, and he said it was worth it, and so if you are a business owner and you are looking for an employee that writes like a 9-year-old girl and ditches work, this could be your guy. i have a feeling he will wind up like this. >> that's dedication. we thought you actually quit your job at "way too early" to go to the game, but you came back. >> yeah, and your 21st birthday
is on a friday. >> i am legal. hillary clinton's birthday is tomorrow so i don't want to share all the spotlight here. and i want to give a shutout of the producer, dana haller -- >> how old are you? >> 28. >> that's a good year. >> yeah. >> great year. >> i don't dislike you that much for being so much younger than me. thank you. still ahead, on the heels on the latest nsa revelations, if you could listen to anybody's conversation, who would it be and why? ♪ (announcer) answer the call of the grill with new friskies grillers, full of meaty tenders and crunchy bites.
