you tighter. she was doing it for her kids and doing it for her family so she had -- so we could be together which was -- trumped everything and anything. and crowning achievement. >> inside corner. the royals 2015 world champions! >> kansas city pulls off another stunning comeback to win the world series, a title thee decades in the making giving fans a reason to say all hail the royals today, monday, november 2nd, 2015. >> announcer: from nbc news this is "today" with matt lauer and savannah guthrie live from studio 1a in rock fler plaza. good morning and welcome to "today" on a monday morning, a sad day in new york and joyous morning out in kansas city. >> for everybody who watched the world series, it was on late and
7:02 am
what a comeback. >> can't blow leads in the ninth inning. much more on the came coming up in a little while as we congratulate the royals, but let's start with our top story on this monday morning. what caused the plane to break up over egypt's splinlsa killing all 222 people on board. a top official with the airline is out with headline-making claims this morning. nbc global correspondent bill neely is in cairo. bill, a can you tell us. >> reporter: good morning, matt. we know now that there was no distress call from the pilot and that the plane broke up mid-air. beyond a lot of theories and very few facts. the kremlin says terrorism cannot be ruled out and the airline says a mechanical impact was the cause. what does that mean? it's a mystery above all for all the relatives for all the those on board. coming home on a plane in a into their home city, the bodies of
7:03 am
144 people who left russia for vacation in egypt. this is where they died, but why is still a mystery. the debris so scattered investigators say the plane broke up in mid-air. the tail found three miles from the cockpit amid the poignant reminders of the lives lost. they are searching for clues and ruling out nothing. >> one of the things that you can't rule out at this time is whether or not there was an explosive device of some sort on the aircraft. >> reporter: a group affiliated with isis said they downed the plane, but their claim has been dismissed by russian and egyptian officials. the airline says no technical fault could have caused the crash, only a mechanical impact on the plane could have caused the break-up. but the jet had an accident once before. its tail damaged landing in cairo 14 years ago. it passed inspection six months ago in ireland. the airline says the incident didn't affect the plane's
7:04 am
safety. in st. petersburg a second day of mourning. they know russian charter airlines have a poor safety record, but they know, too, their country is bombing syria and they have been the victims of terrorism before. so for now all eyes are on the black box flight recorders recovered from the scene. they are ilk examined in cairo. the voices and data on those most likely to unlock this mystery. and although terrorism isn't being ruled out, officials here in cairo and in russia say the most likely cause is a technical or mechanical failure that caused that catastrophic break-up. meanwhile here in cairo, the bodies of more of the victims are being returned to their families in russia today. matt, savannah? >> bill neely in cairo on this story, bill, thank you very much. >> now to the race for the white house. an upheaval within the republican party. side-stepping the rnc, the campaigns came together for a closed-door meeting and agreed
7:05 am
on a list of future demand for a future debate. we'll talk about the impact of an already wild race in a movement first to nbc's peter alexander for the details. peter, good morning. >> reporter: that list of demands will be sent to the tv networks hosting the upcoming tv debates by the end of the day tomorrow. to be very clear, an unprecedented meeting with the campaigns grabbing back the reins pushing the republican national committee aside even as the rnc tried to end any revolt, announcing its own new point for debate negotiations. it may be one thing all 14 republican presidential campaigns can agree on. they are frustrated with the current debate system and going forward want more control. >> these debates are to highlight the differences in philosophy between the candidates. >> i know that harry truman couldn't get elected president with explaining united states of america's health care plan in 30 seconds. >> reporter: after last week's widely criticized cnbc debate, the rnc suspended next
7:06 am
february's nbc news telemundo debate. following a nearly three-hour closed door meeting late sunday without the rnc in attendance, both compromise and disagreement. sources attending the meeting tell nbc news the bush campaign wanted the spanish language telemundo debate reinstated by a representative for donald trump threatened to boycott this. draft letter obtained by nbc news shows some of the campaign's demands. both opening and closing statements. equal time or equal questions to each candidate. another requirement, candidates may not be asked to raise their hands to answer a question. and while the debate may be heated, the room has to be kept cool, below 67 degrees. top republican lawyer ben ginsberg. >> i mean, what happened happened, and so you often have to make course corrections, and now it's time to make a course correction. >> reporter: meanwhile, after last weeks's uninspired debate performance, jeb bush is vowing to step up his game. >> look, i know i've got to get better doing debate, and i -- i
7:07 am
may -- i'm a grinder. i mean, when i see that i'm not doing something well, then i reset and i get bet sneer but for now he's sticking to his guns, again attacking protege turned rival marco rubio for his poor senate attendance record. >> if you're elected to serve, you should show up and vote. >> reporter: rubio again refusing to take the bait. >> i have tremendous admiration, i said that at the debate. >> right. >> you're never going to hear me bad mouth him. >> reporter: there's real urgency here. the next debate is now just eight days away. the trump and carson campaigns, of course, may have the most leverage. together they combine for a majority of republican support as trump's rep told the room, according to sources inside, we don't want anyone on stage because all they do is take potshots and throw punches at mr. trump, and i don't need that. matt and savannah. >> peter alexander, thank you very much. let's bring in nicolle wallace, msnbc analyst and former white house communications director for george w. bush. good morning. >> getting fun. >> i know. just fascinating the dynamics here, so the candidates versus
7:08 am
republican party leaders, right. what's really going on. a vote of no confidence in the rnc. >> a wish to return to the way it used to be. the campaigns used to have a greater say and certainly in the general election and you guys know this. in the general election both campaigns, the republican and the democrat negotiate through their debate commission directly with the networks so this is -- this is a smart move by the campaigns to try to have more say but the notion that you can get a front-runner campaign like donald trump and an underdog campaign like bobby jindal to want and need the same things out of the debates is where they are going to go astray. >> yet, even as you say that i kind of expected to wake up this morning to some stunning demands. >> right. >> game-changing demands. >> right. >> thermostats. >> these are tweaks. >> yeah. >> but here's the thing. we're sort of talking around the edges of it. at the core is a massive generational distrust with the mainstream media and it bubbled over in the debate last week and ted cruz on the stump in iowa this weekend talked about a litmus test that i've never heard before in my life. he said no one should moderate a
7:09 am
gop debate who doesn't plan to vote in a gop primary. >> or hasn't. >> i don't know how they would ever enforce that and to me where republicans need to be careful is these debates are serving a lot of the candidates very well and in my life i've never seen more republicans on the airwaves of mainstream media outlets from town halls and late night and daytime and taking great advantage. >> isn't the bottom line, blaming the media is a longtime winning strategy? >> it is because you can always find an example where it's legitimate and where they have to be careful is not to overplay this hand because they are the party behind them. >> chris christie says, on the other hand, if you can't handle a couple of tough questions or even what seemed like biased questions, how are you going to take on a general election against someone like hilg hill? >> that's right. hillary clinton clint's folks are saying we don't get any favors from the media so the frustration goes both ways but
7:10 am
republicans are hoping to bring it back to more even footing. >> by the way, speaking of politics lester holt will have an excluszive interview with the president on "nbc nightly news" and more of that interview tomorrow on "today." more information on that u.s. cargo ship that sank east of the bahamas during hurricane joke i don't know. the ntsb says the ship appears to have landed upright on the ocean floor. images captured by sonar appear to show the "el faro" in about 15,000 feet of water. remote-controlled subs will now dive almost three miles down to confirm those findings. 33 crew members died after that disabled ship vanished on october 1st. and now to that dramatic finish of the world series overnight. kansas city royals captured the team's first title in 30 years, and willie is here with all the highlights. wow. >> good morning, guys. they did it again. new york mets starting pitcher matt harvey shut down the royals for eight innings, and as he walked to the mound to finish the game in the ninth, it looked as though the series would head back to kansas city for game six, but then as they have done

8:38 am
conditions, but it adds realism to the story, that's what we were looking for and at the same time made us understand the conditions in which not these particular miners and this particular event but miners in general and workers in general, sometimes they are obliged to work. >> yeah. and it's a testament to the human spirit for sure. >> definitely. >> antonio banderas, congratulations on the movie. thank you.
