7:04 am
one tip to keep in mind, you should always look for about 30. paula. >> i liked what that one consumer said. he was getting 80% off. for those that didn't brave the wealth and didn't forgo the sleep or thanksgiving meals are we out of luck to get the best in-store deals? >> reporter: well, here's the good news. the answer is no. stores these days are stretching their hours, stretching those deals, so black friday really is a lot more than just one day now. >> all right, alex perez reporting from chicago. alex, thank you very much. dan. >> so thanksgiving was a huge day for online shopping but black friday is slated to be the busiest day. the national retail federation says 115 million people will buy something today and becky worley joins us from san francisco with the best bargains. hey, becky, good morning. >> good morning, dan. you're right. thanksgiving spending was big. deals today, though, sparking even more buying. data coming in from adobe saying
7:05 am
thanksgiving $1.5 billion they online. that's 17% more than was spent last thanksgiving online. amazon reporting their thanksgiving sales this year, 50% larger than last year. analysts predicting though today will produce even bigger sales numbers so let's get to the deals. today the best day for discounts on clothing, cell phones and toys, dan. >> so what are some of the better deals you're seeing out there today? >> today i think gift cards. they're the number one gift request. they are on sale. it's kind of like free money. so itunes gift cards, it's a bogo on 30% off the one get one so it's 15% off on itunes gift cards at best buy. google play cards are 17% off at costco. another deal, the dyson v6
7:06 am
50 bucks off the regular price, plus today at entire next purchase. that is huge. let's talk toys. if it's popular, i have this guy, the incredible porg. he likes to talk to you but now if you see even a small discount on something popular like this, he's been marked down about $12, $13 at jcpenney. get them while you can telling out like hotcakes same for hatchimals and fingerlings. >> i have a 3-year-old and don't want to hear that noise all the time so hoping he's not watching this. >> i'll send it to you, bud. >> i appreciate that. by the way you know you're shopping too much term when you use terps like bogo unironically, buy one, get one. we saw alex perez in the store in chicago. a lot of people will be hitting stores today. but where are the better deals, online or in stores?
7:07 am
seeing deals in both. it may be about innt we're getting from both the national retail federation and adobe. almost half of online shopping is being done from mobile devices, not computers, dan. >> becky worley, our expert will be talking to us throughout the morning. paula, over to you. >> dan and becky, thank you. for more online black friday deals we are joined by amazon's senior p,manager, lori torgerson, lori joining us. >> hi. how are you? >> we're seeing traditional brick and mortar stores are trying to get everybody to come in the store. but why is online better? >> nothing beats the convenience of shopping from the comfort of your own home and amazon is offering incredible deals all throughout the holiday season and particularly during what we call the turkey five so popular shopping days kicked off yesterday on thanksgiving, running all the way through cyber monday. you're going to find some of the best deals
7:08 am
amazon. >> the turkey five. i've only heard that for the first time this morning. i want you to tell us about some of your best deals. i have a bunch of things in my cart waiting to check out. what are some? >> you'll find more than 30 deals of the day and thousands of lightning deals across toys, electronics, kitchen gadgets and that includes deals from small businesses and entrepreneurs all across the country. and so today we're offering up to 40% off select underarmour apparel and offering almost half off a nespresso machine and off melissa and doug toys and furniture and 30% off a segway minipro. some of the deals you'll find. >> what are some of your biggest sellers right now? >> so coming off big shopping day on thanksgiving, we saw alexa enabled devices were among the best-seller list and also saw the keurig was wildly popular among amazon customers
7:09 am
far. we'll see what happens today for black friday. >> i want to monday. you mentioned the turkey five. cyber monday is just around the corner. with all these deals, does it mean anything anymore. >> absolutely. last year on cyber monday amazon customers ordered more than 64 million items worldwide which is a record breaking 740 items per second. so if that's any indication of how popular cyber monday shopping is, i think we're in for quite a busy day monday. >> you're probably going to be shipping hundreds of millions of packages this holiday season. are they going to arrive in time for christmas? >> absolutely. so i know that that is of the utmost importance to amazon customers all throughout the year and especially during the busy holiday season. rest assured we are working with our carrier partners across the country and increased delivery capacity with our own fleet of cargo trucks and planes to make sure the packages arrive on your doorstep right on time. >> one more sign that amazon is taking over. lori torgerson joining us from seattle this morning, lori, thank you so much.
7:10 am
and happy black friday. >> thank you, happy black friday to you as >> that on time delivery is such a major issue. >> see all those toys we can buy for your son. >> yes, i did. as long as they don't make too much noise. we move on to politics though and what could be a truly troubling development for the white house. news broke overnight involving michael flynn, the national security adviser who was fired by president trump as first reported by "the new york times" and now confirmed by abc news, flynn's lawyers have told the president's legal team that they can no longer discuss the russia investigation with him and cecilia vega is at the white house. cecilia, good morning. can you break this down for us. >> reporter: essentially a break in talks could be a sign that michael flynn is now cooperating with robert mueller's investigation. remember flynn, of course, was the president's short-lived national security adviser. he's a key target of mueller's probe into whether there was collusion between the russians and the trump team during the campaign. if he is cooperating, he'd really be able to pull back the
7:11 am
days of this white house nervous about this? a lawyer for the president says, look, this was expected. it's not an unexpected move but no one should draw any conclusions about this meaning that trump is working against the president but, dan, i mean as you know, certainly those are the conclusions that are being drawn this morning. >> absolutely. potentially a major development in this investigation, cecilia, while i have you, let me ask you about another piece of news this morning. a new apology from democratic senator al franken who has now been accused of groping four women. what is he saying? >> reporter: yeah, well, two women came forward to accuse them -- to accuse him, rather, of grabbing their backsides during political events when he was running for senate. the first time. overnight he released a lengthy stiement and says basically he's met thousands of people and take photos at chaotic events and then says this, quote, i'm a warm person. i hug people. some women have
7:12 am
greetings or embraces for a hug or photo inappropriate and i respect their feelings about that. i feel terribly that i've made some women feel badly and for that i am so sorry an i want to make sure that never happens again. he also apologized, dan, to minnesotans and says he is committed to regaining their trust. we have not heard from him on camera since this scandal broke. >> cecilia vega at the white house for us this morning. cecilia, thank you. paula, over to you. >> doesn't sound like senator al franken is going to step down either. we want to turn to uma thurman's bombshell me too message to harvey weinstein. the "kill bill" star breaking her silence on the sexual assault allegations against the movie mogul and abc's erielle reshef has more. erielle, good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning, paula. it wasn't the joyful thanksgiving post her fans may have been expecting. actress uma thurman taking aim at harvey weinstein on instagram and telling her followers to stay tuned. this morning, uma thurman with strong words. >> i roared and
7:13 am
>> reporter: the "kill bill" actress taking a page out h own movie and delivering a cryptic but clear message to disgraced movie mogul harvey weinstein. posting this photo from that movie he executive produced and writing, happy thanksgiving, everyone, except you, harvey and all your wicked con spirit tors. i'm glad it's going slowly. you don't deserve a bullet. the candid post coming just weeks after thurman became emotional on the red carpet when asked about the me too moment. >> because i have learned i am not a child and i have learned that when i've spoken in anger, i usually regret the way i express myself. >> reporter: but did not elaborate any further. >> when i'm ready, i'll say what i have to say. >> reporter: thurman has worked with weinstein on some of her biggest hits including the cult classic "pulp fiction."
7:14 am
but has remained silent as dozens of women have come out with claims that the embattled producer sexually harassed them. now the oscar winner hinting she is ready to tell her story. and thurman added in her instagram post i said i was angry recently and i have a few reasons, #metoo. in case you couldn't tell by the look on my face stay tuned. we have reached out to her representatives for additional comment. so far we have not heard back. >> just from the tone of her voice sounds like she is ready. >> forceful. forceful. erielle, thank you very much. we'll switch gears to an amazing thanksgiving story. it involves a 2-year-old boy who received a life-saving kidney transplant a month after it was postponed due to his father's parole but an anonymous donor came to the family's rescue and linsey davis is here with that. good morning. >> you know, this story is about a kidney but where you feel it is all in your heart. in a controversial move last month little a.j. burgess was denied his father's kidney but this m
7:15 am
the hospital recovering after life-saving surgery. this morning, one family has even more to be thankful for after receiving a priceless gift from a stranger. 2-year-old a.j. burgess had been born prematurely without kidneys and needed a transplant to survive. his father anthony wag a perfect match. >> i want to give him a kidney. i'd go to the hospital right now and lay on the bed and give him my kidney. >> but anthony who had previously been jailed for theft was arrested again in september for violating parole right before he was scheduled to donate his kidney to his son. emory health care postponed the life-saving operation saying in a letter the surgery would be put on hold until he could show evidence of compliance from his parole officer for the next three months. >> i don't understand what him being on parole has to do with him giving our son a kidney. >> this is a child's life we're talking about. >> reporter: protests erupted in atlanta
7:16 am
hospital demanding that emory health reverse theirfamily's at surgery so far was a success. >> the family has had an unbelievable feeling today of gratitude and it's just been an overwhelming 24 hours for them. >> reporter: a.j.'s family spent thanksgiving at the hospital. but their thoughts are with that anonymous donor's family. >> this is for them an unexpected thanksgiving miracle. >> reporter: a.j.'s expected to be in the hospital for about a week. his mother posted on facebook not posting what's wrong on here but please keep him in your prayers. actor and filmmaker tyler perry who recently gave the family a car to drive back and forth to dialysis is also asking people to pray for a.j. maybes it all the more special
7:17 am

7:31 am
a little news happening fly now, the former national reportedly splitting from president trump, a sign that he might, might be cooperating with special counsel robert mueller's russia investigation. also right now, an update on an amazing story we told you about yesterday about paying it forward. kate mcclure launched a go fund me page for a homeless hero, a veteran by the name of johnny bobbit. when she ran out of gas he gave her his last 20 bucks. she decided to pay him back. her original goal was to raise $10,000. he said it was life changing. this morning it has reached $290,000. >> wow. >> for the homeless here. it is incredible and he says that he's going to pay that forward yet again and give it away to other people? that's his first instinct is to think outside of himself. even when that number reached 1700, he said that was going to be life changing and now look at the donations pouring in.
7:32 am
>> life changing for many people. >> i know. well, god bless him. we'll begin this half hour with the murder, though, that rocked a beautiful seaside down on cape cod. a single mother found stabbed to death. her young daughter was left unharmed by her side and abc's sunny hostin has more. good morning to you. >> good morning. well, at the time this was the first murder in 30 years to rock the small new england town. it was followed by a lengthy investigation with the entire town under suspicion and today serious questions remain about how police handled the case and if they got the right man. -year-old christa worthington was found murdered in her truro home. >> stabbed through the chest. >> reporter: her 2 1/2-year-old daughter found unharmed near the bead. >> there was some evidence she took her sippy cup and tried to feed her mother and wake her mother up. >> the cape had never seen or witnessed an event like this ever. >> reporter: the
7:33 am
family goes back generations here in truro where they are rich in propertya inherited her weather-worn cottage. >> her father was a harvard educated lawyer. it was a very privileged upbringing. after high school christa went to vassar. she actually was the bureau chief in paris for "women's wear daily" and wrote for all the major magazines, cosmo, harper's bazaar. >> there was nothing to indicate who it might have been. the house at 50 deep poe road is isolated. >> i couldn't imagine who could have killed her. i couldn't even think of it. >> they have problems here because this crime scene was managed very poorly. >> the police here have not had to deal with a murder in maybe a generation. two general -- three generation, who knows. these people are not trained to handle a murder scene. >> the blanket was thrown over the victim. that contaminated the body. >> while the crime scene was not pristine they found critical
7:34 am
>> we believe that christa worthington was involved in an intimate relationship with a person prior to or relatively con temp andous with her death. >> the police and district attorney were desperate. they have not solved this case so they decided to do a very unusual thing. >> reporter: investigators took the controversial step of launching what's called a dna dragnet. they asked all of truro's roughly 800 male residents to voluntarily give dna samples. >> who did the police question? everybody. and they did so indiscriminately. literally hundreds of people. myself included. >> almost everyone in town was a suspect. >> after three years of investigation, the police finally get this dna break and they make an arrest, but they arrest someone that no one would have expected. so it turns out that the dna dragnet did not
7:35 am
killer. the dna they got a hit on they had had for maybe over a year. >> the big question remains has the wrong man been in jail for 11 years? >> yeah, i know you're trying to get to the bottom of that. sunny, you know, we saw it in the piece that the police there had rarely investigated murders and there are questions of possible contamination at the crime scene. i want to read what the d.a. said to abc news about possible contamination. he said obviously initially responding police and emergency medical technicians have to enter a scene to assess the threat and treat the injured. no crime scene is pristine. this one was better than many but how problematic is how this situation was handled? >> extremely problematic. i mean if you think about it, a murder had not been investigated in the town for 0 years and didn't know what to do. when you take a blanket and throw it over the body you are contaminating the entire crime scene so i think there are real problems with this case because of the way it was handled. >> and christopher

what's called online phishing worr aut as shopping u need to continues to go high tech these days. abc's gio benitez is here with the story. hey, gio. >> reporter: good morning. adobe an lit seconds estimates 54% of all visits to shopping sites will come from smartphones and tablets. that's why our warning about fake malicious apps is so important to revisit. there are nearly 3.4 million at any time hackers can use to see what you're doing on your phone. as you're about to see, the risk is very real. we're inside a coffee shop in washington, d.c. with a group of young people who have no idea that some of them are about to be hacked. >> here we go. >> here's why. just this september, a massive breach made headlines. >> one of the biggest outbreaks ever. >> reporter: hackers somehow introduced 50 malicious apps also known as doppelgangers, fake apps that mirror the reel thing into the google play store and millions of unsuspecting android users downloaded the bad app, a
7:42 am
times. one of those disguised as a seemingly simple app called lovely wallpaper. you don't realize it's a fake. >> so if you download a nasty version of minecraft, for example, you actually seem to get minecraft and it seems to work but in the background the attackers are able to access your information. >> reporter: james lyne is a security adviser at sophos and gave phones to our volunteers as part of our demonstration. we told them to use the phones as they normally would. what they don't know, james already installed a malicious app on the phones. now watch with the group sitting in another part of the coffee shop? we can retrieve their text messages. >> there it is. say, it's me. stunning. there's a little emoji. next james triggers one of their cameras. >> he's going to have no idea the camera is just activated and there's a photo of one of our users. >> hi, guys. it turns out
7:43 am
volunteers had signed in to their social media accounts. did anyone notice anything strange happening on your phones? not realizing james had stolen all of their passwords. the person who should have noticed something going on was you. >> oh, did you take that of me while i was on my phone? >> while you were on the phone. this is the selfie cam. >> that's scary. >> reporter: we decided to upantampa e with one of the students taking him outside. he had no idea that inside the coffee shop -- >> i'm tracking him now and can see where he is. >> reporter: -- james was live streeping his camera and pinpointing his location. he has access right now to this. james can even control his text messages. what is this? hey, can you send me your password? >> i didn't text that. >> you didn't? >> no. >> but it says you did. james says someone doesn't even have to be on their phone to be hacked. even when you weren't using the phone we still got a picture of you.
7:44 am
how? >> so the phone was just sitting there on the table looking right up at you. >> reporter: experts say the danger is far greater than just a stolen selfie. >> once the cybercriminal is into your phone they can access your user anyways and password, credit cards. basically to be able to profit from your device without you knowing. >> unbelievable. google tells us it's been tracking this maltware for months and constantly removing bad apps from the play store and added to its review procedures but the company relies on the community of users and developers to catch these bad apps. i know we've traumatized paula. >> i'm almost speechless. by the way, let me turn your camera down. wait. wait. there we go. >> next time i send a dumb text to my wife i'm going to say i got hacked. let me ask what can we do to protect ourselves change your password? >> that's important but not enough. if you've been hacked you need to delete the app. you need to restore your phone. you need to just wipe it entirely and you really need to

8:18 am
surgical fires. >> fire. fire. >> that's when a patient undergoing surgery catches on fire on the operating table. >> reporter: katherine reuter's mother was injured after going in for minor surgery. >> she was burned on her face, neck, shoulder, eyes and ear. >> reporter: according to the hospital it ignited on her face. >> i couldn't believe in the u.s. we could set a patient on fire during surgery. >> reporter: reuter now uses her story to educate others through a website dedicated to prevention. >> we know how to prevent it and know what causes it. >> reporter: mark bruley says most are sparked when oxygen pump to the patient meets an ignition source like a laser and some kind of fuel like fabric but points to a problem saying some patients don't even need this added oxygen and those who do are often pumped with higher
8:19 am
>> so here we're simulating with a mannequin. >> reporter: "gma investigates" had this fiery demonstration. he uses a material that acts like hewlett skin over the surgical area. oxygen flows to the mannequin through a nonflammable tube and once the oxygen builds up, watch what happens when the tool hits the skin. >> whoa. >> oxygen off, please. what we have is damage to the patient's skin. the fire also burned underneath and scorched other areas along the upper chest. >> wow. >> and depending on the amount of oxygen, you could also wind up with burns to the cheek, the eyes, the chin, the nose. >> reporter: though there has been a nearly 65% decline in surgical fires over the last ten years, bruley warns even one preventible accident in the operating room is too many. to those would say, you
8:20 am
what, all of these accidents are down dramatically what do you say? >> certainly they're down. but the 20 or 30 patients a year who wind up with severely facial disfiguring injuries or the one or two patients a year who die that is not unimportant to them. >> reporter: the council on surge cat and perioperative safety does not think oxygen during surgery should be regulated. that every patient who cops to the o.r. is different and this issue should not be taken away from well-trained doctors and nurses. a few simple questions might make the difference. >> you as a patient could ask are you going to give me oxygen on my face? do i really need it or can you get by with air? that is part of the process for eliminating this hazard. >> and the american society of anesthesiologists has been recognized for its efforts to educate the health care community about surgical fires and tell us that while anesthesia is safer than ever it continue

patients really should ask whether that facility has a protocol or plan tify and prevent these fires. >> arm yourself with this information. gio, thanks again for bringing that to our attention. let's send things over to rob. >> hi again, guys. it is, you know, it's getting colder now in the height of football season and people spending more time on the touch. here is your "gma" moment. that includes the dogs. everybody on the couch. oh. the little guy didn't quite make it up there. poor short fella. vertically. boom. i want to stress that none of those dogs were hurt including the one that got bonked in the video, nor was the zebra or faux zebra blanket on the couch. that camehighs: 51-55 winds: south to 5-10 mph tonight: mainly clear lows: 35-40 winds: south 5 mph saturday: increasing daytime clouds, stray showers possible (6-10pm) highs: 54-59 a cold start on this big shopping friday as we start out with temperatures in the 30's. we will warm nicely to near the average high

8:23 am
you know, i'm an immigrant living the american dream and what's great about "shark tank," what makes it one of the best shows on tv we can pay that forward. we can find an entrepreneur who has a dream, a vision, fund them to live their american dream and so a lot of families i feel across the country tune in because it's an aspirational show and people want to be entrepreneur. >> if people want to be entrepreneurs what is the three steps. you ka them the three ps to building a business. >> that's true. yes, so it's very simple. the three things, a product, package, and personality. it all starts with a great product. one of the phrases i like to use is permissible guilt. what does that mean? it means when a product is almost too good to be true. as a nation we love to have our cake and eat it too so when you have a product that tastes good and is better for you and has functional benefits right there you already are halfway to winning and then you build on to that amazing packaging. packaging is your best marketing friend.
8:24 am
budgets and big marketing dollars you have an amazing packaging, you can break through on shelves and don't be concerned about putting your ingredients on the front or your story on the front. a lot of products that are not good for you usually have bad ingredients. we know which ones they are and put them on the back. when you have high protein, high fiber, probiotic, slam it on the front so in the shopping cart and got four seconds to make a decision, i look at the shelf, oh, that's a great package. it's got all those things in it, boom, it's into my cart and finally, have a personality. and that's just not the brand but your culture an the company. create a culture that people will thrive in and then have a brand personality that people bond with whether it's funny or smart or engaging. people want to bond with the brands they carry. >> and, rohan, i'm not sure if you can see our studio audience but we want to take a survey right now, unofficial. how many of you in our studio audience when thinking about building a brand would go to an expert? could you raise your ha
8:25 am
expert? i would say 20%. >> you said most. >> half. about half. >> my math skills are bad. >> i said 20%. he said 50%. so -- >> that is he an entirely different -- >> half of our audience members say they would go to an expert but from your perspective go to an expert or go it alone. >> you know, i actually -- i would like to defy the experts. surround yourself with smart people but defy the experts because if you're an entrepreneur with a new idea and a new product or a new brand that's breakthrough in print, then technically there are to experts. a lot of talking heads and they're great by the way. they like to report the news. they don't actually make the news. if you're an entrepreneur making the news and making something different go with your gut because the talking heads always like to say that's a great new niche idea and guess what, everything is niche until it's not. facebook was niche. uber was niche. smart wars was niche so today's niche brands are tomorrow's billion
