11:00 am
members and their families is without equal. begin your legacy. get an auto insurance quote. usaa. we know what it means to serve. hello, every. i'm kyra phillips in for brooke baldwin. right now, we're tracking perhaps the most powerful storm ever to make landfall. super typhoon haiyan has made history and devoured parts of the philippines. it is stronger than a category 5 hurricane with wind gusts up to 235 miles per hour. and at this point, it's impossible to know how many people have even been killed. we confirm at least three deaths. seven people injured, but a state-run news agency is now reported around 20 people have drowned since the storm surge. this super typhoon is more than 300 miles wide. that's about the distance from boston to philadelphia.
11:01 am
now, here's you're going to see crews of barge workers trying desperately to escape the huge storm surge. we don't even know how many of those workers were even rescued. at this moment, hundreds of thousands of victims are huddling in evacuation centers, even wondering if they have homes to return to. survivors reported terrifying moments as they typhoon slammed in. take a listen. >> now watch how this monster storm unfolded. >> the view from space, monstrous, its cloud cover alone taked up two thirds of the east asian island. it first boarded sumar with winds clocked at 195 miles per hour. worst yed yet, it was the dead
11:02 am
of night. the waves from what might be the strongest storm ever left some of the poor oceanside communities under ten feet of water. because of its speed, the initial impact was over quickly. but the morning light shed light on just how destructive this storm was. and what people inland still have to fear. this video is from cubo, which is more than 100 miles away from where the typhoon made landfall, proving it's still packing a bunch and leaving misery behind. >> i have never experienced wind like this in my entire existence. i have lived in this country for 13 years. and i have been through a few earthquakes. i have been through plenty of these storms. we get hit quite regularly with storms, as you probably already know, but this was something else. the rain, when i looked out the window, the rain wasn't falling. the rain was being pushed almost, you know, 100 degree
11:03 am
angle, right in front of our house. it's pretty incredible. >> tens of thousands of filipinos spent this day in evacuation centers, and as haiyan rolls on, authorities are warning people across the country to prepare for flash floods and even landslides. haiyan is expected to leave the philippines in the next few hours, only to head out to south china sea, toward vietnam. suzanne malveaux, cnn, atlanta. >> i want to help you get a handle on the size of this super typhoon. we have never seen anything like it before. if you compare this mega storm to recent storms in the u.s., you'll see the difference. super typhoon haiyan hit land with wind speets of 195 miles per hour. hurricane katrina, it hit land at 125 miles per hour. that was back in 2005. then just last year, superstorm sandy hit land at 90-plus miles
11:04 am
per hour. i want to go straight to paula hancock, live in manila. what kind of devastation are you seeing while you're there? >> well, kyra, actually, here in manila, there is no devastation. the capital has largely been unscathed by this super typhoon, but it's certainly not the case further down south. it's 3:00 a.m. here local time. we're two hours away from daylight, but we could be a couple days away from actually knowing how bad the devastation is. now, we have been seeing footage of certain places that have been flooded. we can see from the footage as well that the heavy winds have really devastated some areas, pulling roofs off buildings and we know that one of the areas which is a city of about 200,000 people, some of those streets are filled with water, and with debris. so there is a lot of damage in certain areas. but of course, until it's light, we really don't know how much that damage is.
11:05 am
and in fact, the military doesn't know. the government doesn't know. because communication is so bad at this point, the sheer force of the winds has brought down telephone loines, brought down electricity pylons, many trees as well, which has blocked the roads, so it's very difficult to get to these areas. until the light comes up, it is going to be almost impossible for authorities to find out what's happened. as soon as dawn breaks, then the military is going up in the helicopters. they're going to try to get an aerial view of what has happened to see how extensive the damage is and to see which areas need help and what they need. is it basic help like food, water, and medicine, or do people need to be evacuated. >> thank you so much. i want to bring in senior science editor dan vergano. help us, explain to us, white kinds of weather conditions help trigger such a super typhoon? >> warm ocean water is the key. what you have here is a strong
11:06 am
but fairly normal typhoon that dipped outh in the equator, picked up the warm ocean water there, and that gave it a lot more energy and punch. then it sailed straight into the philippines. >> dan, thanks. i appreciate it. how about more perspective with chad myers. as i'm listening to paula and suzanne and her report, headed toward vietnam. how bad is this going to get? >> it's getting an eye again. i really think this will keep going as a super typhoon. it may be 130 miles per hour as it gets very close to a town we all remember, you know, growing up, denang. everybody knows the niem of that town, but this was a significant storm as it went through. that is the area that i think we're going to find the most damage possible. it's a big eye right through here. rolled through here and made storm surge. i love the graphic that you just showed on tv. showing how we had katrina at 125, this at 195. >> a lot of people are trying to understand the difference between hurricane and typhoon.
11:07 am
>> force of the wind. if you're a sailor, if you're a flyer, whatever, you know it's velocity cubed is force. so we take 125 and we cube it. and then we take 195 and we cube it. that means that we're three times more powerful than katrina. this is three times more force than katrina was. >> see, this is what amazes me about the process. you're not just telling us about the weather conditions. you're explaining the entire math and science put together. that's what's so fascinating about folks who follow the weather. >> a big wind gust of 235 miles per hour, if there was one, would have been six times more powerful than any gust we saw in katrina. this is a map of the philippines. this storm, go ahead, todd, move it along. drove itself right into this bay. this is the surge that we're going to be talking about. this town here, completely underwater. the surge came in, into this bay, and it kept moving to the west. and then all of a sudden, you're here. the water, probably 50 to 60
11:08 am
feet deep into the bay, and then going up here to the small little towns, inundating the towns and villages. keep moving to the west, what you find, that city she was talking about, suzanne had that in her piece. 200,000 people right there. we hope most of them got out. we don't think most of them did because they thought they were protected in the shelters. nobody is protected at 195 miles per hour. >> the philippines and you talked about this, got hit with a massive earthquake recently. smaller typhoons hit regularly. tell us what your perspective is with this area. why is it so disaster-prone? >> well, people live on the coast. they are subject to these storm surges like the ones you're seeing here where parts of these islands are mostly ten feet above sea level. if a storam surge comes in, you're talking 13 feet, as high as 20 feet when it landed. these poem don't have a lot of protection. they have to get to high ground in a hurry. you see drownings and mudslides.
11:09 am
they're denuded of forestry in some places, and the heavy rains hit and you have these mudslides that can kill people. >> dan, appreciate the perspective. chad, thank you. >> the president of sudan apologizes for promising everyone can keep their insurance under obama care, but he addressed the disastric rollout. is he backing off his deadline to fix it. >> a father to be decides to die after being paralyzed in a hunting accident, and his widow is now speaking out about whether she agrees with his decision. my employer matches my charitable giving. really. i get bonuses even working part-time. where i work, over 400 people are promoted every day. healthcare starting under $40 a month. i got education benefits. i work at walmart. i'm a pharmacist. sales associate. i manage produce. i work in logistics. there's more to walmart than you think. vo: opportunity. that's the real walmart.

11:12 am
nthat's why they deserve... aer anbrake dance. get 50% off new brake pads and shoes. after finally saying he's sorry about americans losing health insurance, the president's defending obama care again. here he is just moments ago in
11:13 am
new orleans. >> we're going to fix the website because the insurance plans are there. they're good and millions of americans are already finding they're going to gain better coverage for less cost and it's the right thing to do. now, i know the health care is controversial, so you know, there's only going to be so much support we get on a bipartisan basis. until it's working really well and then they're going to stop calling it obama care. they're going to call it something else. >> all right, let's get back to the apology. the president says he's sorry. sorry that several million americans are losing health insurance after he promised over and over it wouldn't happen. couldn't happen under obama care. the president spoke last night to nbc news amid the ongoing fallout caused by his health plan's disastrous rollout. >> i am sorry that they, you
11:14 am
know, are finding themselves in this situation based on assurances they got from me, given i have been burned already with a website, well more importantly, the american people have been burned. ultimately, the buck stops with me. i'm the president. this is my team. if it's not working, it's my job to get it fixed. >> now, that's the president speaking last night. at the same time, he and his health secretary kathleen sebeliusering both are backing away from his pledge to fix the health care website by the end of this month. so as you can see, we have lots to talk about here with robert zimmerman, our democratic strategist. also cnn commentator and conservative radio host, ben ferguson. robert, it's now official, the president broke a promise, a major promise to the american people. wouldn't hait have just made see to delay obama care so everything would have aligned properly? >> actually, no. that would have been the worst thing because had obama care been delayed, in fact, it would have led to the dismantling of
11:15 am
the initiative, the law of the land. the more important initiative here is to look at various options to first get the website back on as soon as possible. if you need to extend the six-month enrollment period, that's got to be extended. but i think it's premature to make any real judgments about the future of obama care until we see it in action. >> ben? >> it's just sad that they're so obsessed with a law that's broken, and they don't care that millions of americans are getting cancellation notices. they don't care that they had to lie to the american people when they knew in 2010 that there were going to be tens of millions of americans who were going to have their plans canceled. they went out and said you're going to keep your own doctor, keep your own plan. if you like private insurance and like it, don't worry. they knew it was a lie. they were told it was a lie in 2010. now, even with this disaster and even with people's premiums going through the roof, they're not coming down. people in the exchange are seeing that. >> let's look -- >> let me finish. my point is this.
11:16 am
they don't even care about the people suffering because they're obsessed with obama care being law at all costs which shows how disconnected they are. >> i want to go through that, but just to the website, back to the website for a second. ben, i don't want you blaming democratic staffers working with rob ford in a drunken stupor. that's when this was all created. you hold that opinion because i know you're going to go there. the president has also promised that the website would be fixed by the end of the month. okay, and now he's backing away from that. as is health secretary kathleen sebelius. she spoke this morning, saying the same thing. take a listen. >> we are committed that by the end of november, the site will be functioning much more optimally. the site is much better today than it was. but in three and a half weeks, we want it operating at a much different pace. >> all right, so bob, you said you want to cut through the rhetoric. let's do that. we still have not heard the word fixed. then you have young people, a lot of young people who, they're needed for this. they're not signing up in the
11:17 am
numbers needed. if you don't get the revenue needed from this, then does the whole system implode? >> absolutely, it does. that's going to be the test of this law. let's see after six months or however long they extend the period, let's see in fact how many young people enroll. we knew from the massachusetts speerjs, many young people enrolled in the latter part of the enrollment period. the important part here is to cut through the right-wing twerking we're hearing ben espouse, his rhetoric, and look at the fact. >> i don't know if ben does twerking, but that's a whole other segment. >> it's called right-wing twerking. the hypocrisy of the right wing is really what is so galling when 14,000 sit whereins a month were losing their health insurance between 2008 and 2009, you didn't see the right wing complaining about it, or when 10% of employees lost their insurance, the right wing wasn't speaking up. >> ben -- wait, ben, to play off that, did the republican party then hurt itself, particularly
11:18 am
the tea party, by forcing the government shutdown over obama care? because in the end, you didn't get anything on obama care, and would it have been better if you tried to negotiate a delay rather than defund it? >> well, at the beginning, we said we don't want to have it. then the white house and the senate said, no, so we said, let's is saone-year delay. a moratorium on the law because it's not red a for rollout. that's what the republicans ask for during the government shutdown. a one-year delay. they now look brilliant. my point is -- >> what poll are you looking at, ben? >> let me finish. let me finish. the majority of americans don't like obama care. that is a poll, that is safact. i'll say this, the fact that you're having to use republican twerking as your defense of obama care against me as a republican. >> it's called grandstanding. >> it tells me how disastrous the law is. and everyone using it, trying to sign up for it, they know it's a disaster. look at it online. it's a failure. >> ben, there's a difference between people who run their
11:19 am
mouths on a talk show and people who run a government. the reality is in running a government -- >> obviously, they're not doing a good job. >> there has to be amendmented, but poll after poll shows the country doesn't want to end it. they want to amend it. it took social security six years to roll out. >> so six years is how long it's going to take to fix? six years? >> we don't want to haear that. it's going to take six years to wrap up this sigment, ben and robert, i appreciate you both. we'll continue this conversation, i'm sure. just ahead, new developments today in the miami dolphins bullying controversy. for the first time, jonathan martin speaks through his lawyer, and we find out what really made him quit the team. i'm a careful investor.

but anyone can help a foster child. well, it was a decision that left her in deep grief, and without a father for the child that she's carrying, but an indiana widow says it was the right choice when her husband opted to remove his breathing tube. he died. reportedly just hours after he learned that he had lost the use of his arms and legs. abbey bower's husband tim was 32. abbey just gave an interview to the indianapolis star saying, quote, the last thing he wanted was to be in a wheelchair. to have all that stuff taken away would probably be devastating. he would never be able to give hugs, to hold his baby. we made sure he knew that, so he could make a decision. even if he decided the other thing, the quality of life would have been very poor. his life expectancy would be very low.
11:24 am
medical ethicist arthur capland says it's important to note before tim had his catastrophic injury, he had the conversation all families should have. >> his family had had a conversation with him about a month earlier saying, what if you knot severely injured, what would you want? >> and he was adamant, no life in a wheelchair, i don't want to be paralyzed. this makes me far more comfortable if you say, wake up, last thing you know you're in a tree, now you're here. what do you think? that's a tougher call, which is a reminder, you have to have that conversation. i know it's hard. thanksgiving is coming. use this case. talk to your friends, talk to your family. >> it's hard, all right. bowers became paralyzed after he fell about 16 feet from a tree stand. his tree stand while deer hunting. his funeral home said he owned a transmission shop in decatur, indiana, and was also a farmer.
11:25 am
>> well, the alleged victim in an nfl bullying controversy details through his attorney how he was treated by his teammates for the last year and a half. jonathan martin abruptly left the miami dolphins amid alleged bullying from his teammates, mainly richie incognito. martin's lawyer released a statement saying it's not about martin's toughness. rather, quote, jonathan endured harassment that went far beyond the traditional locker room hazing. he attempt saed to befront the e teammates that subjected him to the abuse with the hope that doing so would end the harassment. despite theseeft, the taunting continu continued. he endured a malicious physical attack on him by a teammate, and daily vulgar comments. he ended with a quote, allegedly by a teammate, about what he would do to martin's sister.
11:26 am
he said martin will cooperate fully with the nfl investigation. >> a super typhoon slammed into the philippines, leaving a trail of destruction. we find out where the deadly storm is headed next. and my interview with the reverend billy graham, america's pastor turns 95. hear what he says is his biggest regret in life. i started part-time, now i'm a manager.n. my employer matches my charitable giving. really. i get bonuses even working part-time. where i work, over 400 people are promoted every day. healthcare starting under $40 a month. i got education benefits. i work at walmart. i'm a pharmacist. sales associate. i manage produce. i work in logistics. there's more to walmart than you think. vo: opportunity. that's the real walmart. how old is the oldest person you've known? we gave people a sticker and had them show us. we learned a lot of us have known someone

sleep number stores nationwide. sleep number. comfort individualized. hello. everyone. i'm kyra phillips in for brooke baldwin today. right now, we're tracking perhaps the most powerful storm ever to make landfall. super typhoon haiyan demolished parts of the philippines with wind gusts up to 235 miles per hour. at this point, it's impossible to know how many people have been killed. we can confirm at least three deaths. seven people injured. but a state-run news agency is reported around 20 people have drowned after the storam surge. after this moment, hundreds of thousands of victims are huddling in evacuation centers. damage is severe, and not much is still standing. the red cross says about 90% of the infrastructure and buildings are now heavily damaged. let's bring in dan. it was interesting, you were telling me that 20 typhoons, not super typhoons, but 20 typhoons
11:31 am
happen every year. explain why. >> well, it's -- the philippines is in the wrong spot, if you want to avoid typhoons. it's like tornado alley in the u.s. they're sitting on this deep edge of warm water. when they form, it's a wall that soaks up about 20 in a typical ye of typhoons. not super typhoons, as you said. >> can you make a climate connection? >> well, it's a hotly debated area in climate science. a lot of research suggests typhoons, hurricanes, cyclones, storms like this should get stronger because of the climate change making the water warmer. but at the same time, they may become less frequent because the high level winds that knock them down may be more frequent as well. >> what are you paying attention to right this moment? the fact it's headed toward vietnam? >> you're looking at that, wondering how strong it will be
11:32 am
in the south sea's colder water. it should knock it down a little bit. those places have to be worried as well. we're also looking to see is there anything more happening? the typhoon season ended november 1st in the western pacific here. we are. >> dan, thanks so much. >> you bet. well, his body may be aging, but his spiritual guidance can still draw people in from church pews to the oval office, to his own birthday party. the reverend billy graham just celebrated 95 years in a big way. 900 people, including sarah palin, megachurch pastor rick warren, and donald trump, attended the event in asheville, north carolina, where graham lives. the preacher advised generations of presidents, starting with harry truman. graham didn't give a speech, but the people did hear him speak through a video played on a big screen.
11:33 am
>> i began preaching many years ago. it was not within my thoughts i would be preaching to large audiences. >> graham began his work in 1944, and in 2005, he went on what was described as his last crusade in america. i was pretty lucky and honored to sit down with him that year. he was 86 years old, and our first topic, well, i wanted to know about his love life with the woman he spent nearly 64 years with, ruth. she died in 2007. >> you said you're having more romance now than ever before. >> that is correct. >> how is that? >> through our eyes. she's an invaliinvalid. and i'm a partial invalid. we have a bathroom between us. she has one room and i have the other bedroom. when i go in several times a
11:34 am
day, we look at each other and i'm telling her through my eyes, i love you. and she's doing the same, but i always say it and so will she. i never go to bed at night without telling her that i love her and that i hope she has a good night's rest. and she watches films, videos, most of the time. >> must you be so darned delightful. >> affair to remember. >> affair to remember. we watched several times. >> why do you choose that movie? >> i like carey grant. he was a friend of mine. last time i saw him, he hugged me and kissed me. we were both getting older at that time, but he's gone now. >> all the different places that you've traveled, all the different people you have met, is there still a face or a person or a moment in time that you think a lot about?
11:35 am
>> that would be a very difficult question for me to answer. yes, i think moments one would have, a decision that one makes, the decision to come here in '57. i didn't think i was capable of it or ready for it. and i dmefnever dreamed i was g to stay here so long. i ran out of sermons after a few days. i had to prepare a sermon every day. >> what happens when reverend billy graham runs out of surm ndz? what do you do? >> i preach the old ones over. >> do you have any regrets? >> well, the only regret i have is that i didn't spend more time with my family. i traveled a lot. and also i didn't spend enough time studying and praying. those are the real things through life i think that are very important. and of course, i have regretted
11:36 am
that in some areas that i didn't stay long enough. to really penetrate the area. i can't think of one at the moment, but it's great just being a christian, to know that on all occasions, i can count on the lord to help me. some people ask me what is my number one prayer? i said, lord help me. >> when you're not praying, when you're not thinking about god, what is reverend billy graham thinking about when you're relaxed? >> my family. each one of them. i think of them and pray for them. and then we live about 3500 feet up, and i can look down on two or three towns. i pray for those people that don't know i'm praying for them, but i do. not individually, but as a group. and i can look out and see about
11:37 am
20 miles from my front porch. and it's a wonderful place to rest and relax. >> when it's time to meet your maker, i want to know if there's one thing, what do you want everyone to remember about you? what is the most important thing to you? >> that i was faithful to the message he gave me and faithful to the calling that he gave me, to go into the world and preach the gospel. and then i want -- that's how i would like to be remembered. >> he was so faithful, also to his wife. and i asked him, how did you avoid temptation? and he told me that he never went into a room with a woman by himself. and this is where i chuckled. he wouldn't even go into a room with hillary clinton by himself. he always had somebody with him. and that's one thing that always stuck with me. billy graham, happy birthday.

early as possible depending on new york traffic. we got our mission listing, what we have to do for the day. >> going to williamsburg. >> we try to keep up with the time. >> what time does that job start? between 1:00 and 3:00, right? >> kind of like a military operation order. >> when you show up with a bunch of veterans, they know what they're getting. >> that discipline, everyone takes it to work with them. >> for a lot of veterans coming back to the city, it's so hard to get established and get your feet back on the ground. >> it took me four months to find a place to live. a lot of people, they're looking for a year of like work. so when you get out of the service, obviously, you're not getting a paycheck anymore, so even though you might have $30,000 saved in a bank account, that doesn't matter. you have to have steady work. it takes a lot to sacrifice your time and energy to serve for your government, to protect the people of this land. and you know, when you're here in the city, jobs are scarce. >> since you were in the
11:44 am
service, there is no such thing as i'm going to stop and quit because you're tired. >> we don't have bad traits that other moving companies have. everyone here always has their head on straight when they come to work. >> i'll start grabbing the boxes. >> what more can you acfor? you work and now jour you're ge paid and you're hanging out with your friends, pretty much. >> it's good work, what we do. >> i'm going to go with this company -- ride with it until the wheels fall off or until we explode and i don't have to be on the truck. >> 99% of our clients are happy us. we have been lucky, so lucky that we found a group of men that love what they do and they respect their clients. and the clients just love us. >> be sure to watch cnn's veterans in focus special. monday, november 11th, 2:30 p.m. eastern time. a utah doctor accused of killing his beauty queen wife. at the center of the case, the doctor's mistress, her name is

11:48 am
in provo, utah, jurors in the murder trial of dr. martin macneill will soon decide his fate. closing arguments today are recapping the evidence presented during the four-week trial. prosecutors told the jury that macneill had the motive and the means and the opportunity to kill his wife michele on the morning of april 11th, 2007. >> between 9:30 a.m. and about 11:00 a.m., no one really knows about martin macneill's
11:49 am
whereabouts, and he had been at work that morning, certainly. and we know he was back at work by 11:00, because he places a phone call at 11:00 from his office. and had placed a phone call about 9:30, about 9:26 or so, i believe, from his office. but there's about an hour and a half period of time where no one really knows where martin is. >> in his closing argument, the defense pounced on one central fact in the case, three medical examiners all determined michele macneill died of natural causes. >> she had conducted her examination, as you'll see in her notes, with the knowledge that some family members, specifically linda, thought that martin had killed michele. so it's not like the doctor had no clue about some of the family members' assertions. she eval whaited the evidence clearly and made a conclusion. she certified the cause of death
11:50 am
as being due to hypertension, cardiov cardiov cardiovascular disease, and as being natural. a real possibility of insnls. that's reasonable doubt. >> hln's jane velez-mitchell joining me from new york. i don't know about you, but when it comes to closing arguments, shouldn't there be a little more fire, a little more excitement? they were so mellow doing power point presentations like thafr were in a sixth grade class. >> they're no juan martinez. i'm referring to the prosecutor in the jodi arias case, but i thought until today, the prosecution was doing an awful job, a sloppy job, letting the witnesses slip and slide past them, but i think the prosecutor's closing argument today was absolutely brilliant. i think he connected the dots. i think that he really showed that this doctor, as a respected doctor in the community, was in
11:51 am
a unique position to pull off a murder and make it look like an accident. and as you mentioned, they go through motive, means, and opportunity. the motive, he wanted to be with his mistress, gypsy, who he was texting furiously during all of this, who he brought in two weeks later to the family home as the nanny. he was proposing to her on his knee three months later. the means, he convinced his wife to get this plastic surgery. then he gets the extra pain killers. then he's plying her with the pain killers. and then the opportunities. you heard the prosecutors say there's this hour and a half where he's unaccount eed for, where he gets to go back to the home, take these pills, i'm going to get you a nice tub. get into the tub, and then pulls her down. i thought they really did paint the picture. >> both sides stipulated michele macneill didn't kill herself. why? >> it's not a suicide. we heard three medical examiners
11:52 am
for the state. they're not able to say this is a homicide. the possibilities range from cardiovasural disease to drug toxicity to drowning. the crux of the case, the reason it's so fascinating is how do you tell the difference between somebody taking too many pillsering getting in the tub, nodding out and drowning, and someone being given too many pills by one's doctor husband and told, get into the tub, and then being held down. how do you tell the difference between those two events. the defense said, look, three medical examiners were not able to say this was homicide. you jurors should not dare to jump to that conclusion yourself. you jurors should not make that leap. but maybe they will. and maybe they'll do it in a couple hours. >> there you go. we're waiting for that verdict. thanks so much. >> thanks, kyra. >> you bet. coming up next, one of the most powerful brands in journalism now apologizing for a big-time error. why "60 minutes" is under serious fire. i'm going to speak live with a

11:56 am
so, 60 minutes goofed. and star reporting lara logan says she's sorry for it. that apology came today on cbs this morning. >> the most important thing to every person at 60 minutes is the truth. and today, the truth is that we made a mistake. and that's very disappointing for any journalist. it's very disappointing for me. >> so what are we talking about here? we're talking about a blockbuster report that aired october 27th. and it featured new claims that u.s. officials were warned in advance of lax security at the u.s. consulate in benghazi, libya. a source for the story described for logan his valiant effort to fight off attackers who stormed that compound and killed four americans. >> as i got closer, i was hit
11:57 am
with the butt of a rifle in the face. >> and? >> i went down. >> dropped? >> yeah, like a stone. >> now, turns out that guy wasn't even at the compound at all. at least, that's what he told his employer. a fact 60 minutes had failed to uncover. according to cbs, he told the same thing to the fbi. he wasn't there. and that piece of information prompted today's retraction. with us now from washington, eric, television critic for national public radio. ai airic, i mean, this is "60 minutes" the flagship news show for cbs. how bad is this? >> this is a rough one. particularly because the story they reported on, the benghazi attacks, is so controversial politically. many conservative legislators have tried to use this as a way to accuse the obama administration of being lax in many ways. and so it was important to know whether or not these allegations of early warnings about security
11:58 am
problems were accurate, and so the sourcing in the story was very important. >> let's listen again to lara logan explaining why the story is being retracted. >> after our report aired, questions were raised about whether his account was real. after an incident report surfaced that told a different story about what he had done that night. and you know, he denied that report. he said that he told the fbi the same story that he had told us. what we now know is he told the fbi a different story. >> eric, 60 minutes sinks its teeth really into a story, airs it, and four days later it's the "washington post" that debunks this whole thing. what happened to the vetting process? this is what "60 minutes" is known for, is getting a story, vetting it, and breaking news. >> well, this is a very complex
11:59 am
story of how the story desint grated. at first, the washington post reported that there was an incident report that apparently had this man's signature on it that said he was trapped in a beachside villa and never made it to where the attack happened. but he countered by telling the daily beast and telling cbs apparently that he had never seen that report. he didn't know who signed it for him, and that that was not what happened. and then later, well, he also said -- he told the fbi what he also told "60 minutes" and cbs, then the "new york times" discovered in the middle of this week that that wasn't true, that the fbi also says that they were told by him that he did not get to the attack site. so all of a sudden, this idea that someone cooked up an incident report and signed his name to it is suddenly in doubt. it's hard to know when he was telling a lie, was he lying to his superiors, was he lying in
12:00 pm
the report, was he lying to cbs? all of a sudden "60 minutes" and cbs realized they could not trust what he was telling them. >> interesting to see how it plays out for the show and its reputation. tune in this sunday. eric is going to guest host "reliable sources" right here on cnn at 11:00 a.m. eastern. it is the top of the hour, and i'm kyra phillips in today for brooke baldwin. right now, we're tracking a typhoon that may be earth's most powerful storm ever. here's super typhoon haiyan as it hammered the philippines. the storm is stronger than a category 5 hurricane with wind gusts up to 235 miles per hour. and at this point, it's impossible to know how many people have been killed. we can confirm at least three deaths. seven people injured, but a
12:01 pm
state-run philippine news agency is now reported about 20 people have drowned. here you can actually see crews of barge workers trying to escape the huge storm surge. we don't know how many workers have actually been rescued. but watch how this monster storm has unfolded. >> the view from space, monstrous. its cloud cover alone takes up two thirds of the east asian island. haiyan first roars into samar in the central philippines with winds clocked at 195 miles per hour. worse yet, it was the dead of night. the waves from just what may be the strongest storm ever left some of these poor oceanside communities under ten feet of water. because of its speed, the initial impact was over quickly. but the morning light shed light on just how destructive this storm was. and what people inland still have to fear.
12:02 pm
this video is from cebu, which is more than 100 miles away from where the typhoon made landfall, proving it's still packing a punch and leaving misery behind. >> all i could hear is wind, i mean, i have never experienced wind like this in my entire existence. i have lived in this country for 13 years and i have been through a few earthquakes. i have been through plenty of these storms. we get hit quite regularly with storms, as you probably already known. this was something else. the rain, when i looked out the window, the rain wasn't falling. it rain was being pushed almost at, you know, a 100-degree angle. right in front of our house. pretty incredible. >> tens of thousands of filipinos spent this day in evacuation centers. and as haiyan rolls on, authorities are warning people across the country to prepare for flash floods and even landslides. haiyan is expected to leave the
12:03 pm
philippines in the next few hours. only to head out to south china's sea, toward vietnam. suzanne malveaux, cnn, atlanta. >> chad, let's get back to you. right now, how do scientists measure a monster storm's power and size? we have been talking so much about the science of all this. >> well, it was only satellite derived. all those numbers, every number you see here, was satellite derived. because there's no airplane that flies into the storm like we have planes, hurricane hunters that fly into our storms. there are no typhoon hunters. i'm not sure i want to be in an airplane had the winds are 195 miles per hour, either. so there you go. look what happens to the philippines. this is the main island where most people live. we had haiyan as it comes across the central southern islands and finally back out into the south china sea. that's one year. and that was a super typhoon,
12:04 pm
obviously, we know that. that's what it looks like from space, a three-dimensional image, came right across here, right across the islands. many towns and cities were in the way. although big cities, not major cities were not in the way, thank goodness. that's one good thing. there are towns of 200,000, cities somewhere in there, but not the millions. tens of millions that live right there. they -- manila was spared the storm. now it's in the south china sea and going over toward vietnam. it could still be a category 2 or 3, equal to a 2 or 3 hurricane as it makes landfall tomorrow. we don't talk about typhoon cycles, hurricanes, they're all the same thing. now, the southern hemisphere, they spin the opposite way, but they're all the same thing. they just have a different surmaim. it's the exact same storm created by the exact same spin by the exact same force. they just have a tf title, a different first name. >> chad, you're going to be very busy throughout this afternoon and tonight. let's bring in national geographic news writer and
12:05 pm
editor, jane lee. compare this super typhoon to other catastrophes you have covered. >> well, hurricane katrina was also a category 5 hurricane. and it also did the same thing. it passed over a warm pool of water in the gulf of mexico and gathered strength before hitting new orleans. that's likely what happened here with the super typhoon. >> now, typhoon season officially ended november 1stering right? so this is arriving pretty late. what do you make of that? >> yes, well, you know, the experts i have talked to are also puzzled. they recognize that it is late in the season, but the philippines and the western pacific actually has some of the warmest waters in the world, and so they can spawn typhoons year round. >> all right, jane lee, appreciate your input. now i want to show you new video of the storm destruction we're just getting in.
12:06 pm
okay, now, both of these videos are from rj lucky one on facebook. you definitely get a sense of the massive devastation, and chad, i know you're paying attention and looking to the new video as it comes in as well. let's go ahead and compare this mega storm hitting the philippines to recent monster storms in the u.s. the super typhoon hit land with wind speeds of 195 miles per hour. we heard jane lee mention hurricane katrina. it hit land at 125 miles per hour. that was in 2005. last year, superstorm sandy hit land at 90-plus miles h s per h. i want to get back to paula hancock, live in manila. right now, how are authorities responding to this disaster? what can you tell us at this hour? >> reporter: well, kyra, to be
12:07 pm
honest, right now, there's very little they can do. it's still dark. we have a little less than an hour before day break. that's when they'll be able to kick into high gear and try to help the people who need the help. though the military is on standby at this point, we know as soon as it is light and if the weather further perimates it, they'll be heading up in the helicopters to get an aerial view of what has happened. the area hit is so vast that the only way of getting a complete picture of who needs help and what help they need is to get into the air. that's what the military will be doing. of course, the concern as well is will the landing strips be flooded? you know, hundreds of airports, sorry, hundreds of flights were canceled because of the heavy rains and the heavy winds. so there is a concern that the helicopters simply won't be able to land. >> yep, and that impacts from a military perspective, who can get in there and how many people can help. we'll keep checking in.
12:08 pm
thanks so much. coming up, the editor of guns and ammo magazine resigns. you wonder why? apparently, he published a pro gun control column and readers were livid. are they right to put the second amendment first. plus, for the first time, jonathan martin's side of the story in the bullying controversy engulfing the miami dolphins. hear why the player's sister is now involved. and toronto's crack-smoking mayor apparently pretty upset with somebody here. >> i'm telling you it's first degree. but when it comes to investing, i just think it's better to work with someone. someone you feel you can really partner with. unfortunately, i've found that some brokerage firms don't always encourage that kind of relationship. that's why i stopped working at the old brokerage, and started working for charles schwab.

12:12 pm
speech or the right to bear arms? one magazine chief just learned a hard lesson. the editor of guns and ammo resigning after he published a column advocating gun control in next month's issue. you know, getting in the other side of the debate. well, that didn't sit well with the readers so he fired the writer of that column, then he wrote an apology, which in part described the feedback from readers who questioned the magazine's commitment to the second amendment. well, he goes on to say that he was untrue to the tradition, so did he even deserve the heat? let's talk about it, shall we? emily miller from the washington times and editor of emily gets her gun, and chris kofinis, democratic strategist and former communications director for john edwards. okay, emily, i'm going to start with you. first, do you think heads deserve to roll on this? >> i think there's a lot of pressure from advertisers and from readers. it was a business decision more than anything else.
12:13 pm
i mean, jim and metcalf as well, they really heard a lot of anger from their readers, and long-term readers. this is a very old magazine. and advertisers and manufacturers threatened to leave. under pressure, that's what is so important, this year, the second amendment is under attack like no other. you go in something like guns and ammo and expect to hear absoluteness when it comes to the second amendment. >> interesting, i'm hearing a discussion on second amendment and then i'm hearing about the power of social media possibly causing someone to cave because money and advertising dollars come into play. this is a private magazine so they can do anything they want, but can gun owners not even hear the other side of the debate? >> as a journalist, i would like people to hear both sides of the debate. >> i mean, that's first amendment. >> the first amendment is just as important as the second amendment, absolutely. i do not favor more restrictions
12:14 pm
on the second amendment. that's what my book "emily gets her gun" is about, the attack from the white house and bloomberg, however i believe the debate is on facts and the gun control debate is quite simple. no gun control law has ever reduced crime. if you debate on facts, you're going to win. i do take issue with these people, with the pro-second amendment people who don't want to have any debate, at least on the pages of guns and ammo, that's their right, they subscribe to it, they pay for it, but let's have a debate because i promise you're dpg to win because you have the facts. >> thetrusting, okay, then i want to point out by the way, not all the readers ripped the magazine. some defended some kind of push for control, which i thought was interesting. others said it was energize gun control efforts. saying the column is like throwing a bucket of blood in shark invested waters is actually what somebody said. chris, do you see it that way? >> what it does is reinforce how the various groups look at each
12:15 pm
other. what the pro gun control groups look at is the fact that when you look at, you know, in terms of reasonable common sense reforms, now, what this editor was talking about, if i'm not mistaken, was simply training. he wasn't talking about anything, i would say, by normal standard would be considered draconian. >> that's a point well made. that was pointed out. >> so even though they had such an objective response, such a heated response to this, i think when you look at the reality, the overwhelming majority of americans support background checks. the overwhelming majority of americans support common sense reasonable reforms. >> responsible -- actually, no. >> by the way, and just for the record, the notion that somehow gun control has no impact on gun violence, you know, there's oo reason why for example we have more gun murders in this country than canada does or any other european country. it's because we have more guns
12:16 pm
that are unregulated. >> we're not talking about canada. as much as you sound like piers morgan, we're not going to talk about england. we're going to talk about the united states, and gun crimes and gun murders have gone down 50% in the last 20 years as gun ownership has gone up to the highest rates. secondly, the government cdc study has proven not one single gun control law has ever reduced crime. >> no one, by the way, no one is talking about taking away guns. all people are talking about is reasonable reform. >> let's get back to what was being written about in the editorial, okay, because the right to bear arms is not res lult. it's regulated. we know that. as the writer points out as i see here that the second amendment says so itself, a well regulated militia. that was an interesting way to put it. the writer argues that he was making a point covered by the constitution. >> well, the supreme court decision in 2008 clearly explained the well regulated militia part of the amendment is
12:17 pm
separate from the right to keep and bear arms. what metcalf was talking about the training requirement for a permit in illinois. it was a pretty narrow column. illinois is a state that is forced to allow carry rights. they have set up a system that is very hard, takes a hot of training, a lot of time. other states make it simple, take a short class. that's the issue, how long it takes to get carry permits. that's specific to that. it's not about what types of gun you're going to carry or any type of assault weapons ban. >> i listen to the details both of you lay out. i read the column, chris, what this comes down to is the power of social media. and it got what it wanted. >> it's the age we live in now. it's a 24/7 interconnected world where if you, you know, if you stir up the pot, you're going to get a lot of stings. >> you can start revolutions and bring down editors. >> absolutely. it's the reality of the day and age we live in. but listen, in this case, i would say it's isolated because
12:18 pm
you're talking about a magazine where the audience was very pro gun. in terms of the wider debate, the overwhelming country believes that, i don't know, it's not unreasonable if someone wants to carry a gun in a concealed fashion, they should maybe be trained. i know that's kind of crazy to some people, but it's a pretty reasonable response for most. >> that is the norm in the state. >> no matter what side you're on, i bet you a lot of people are going to be buying that magazine. i can tell you that. >> that's right. >> one of us will be. >> oh, chris. chris is going to be sneaking a peek, i can promise you that. he won't let anyone see him. emily, chris, thanks a lot. appreciate it. >> thank you. coming up, 92 details in the nfl bullying controversy. alleged victim jonathan martin releasing explicit texts he says he received. what he says he was forced to endure, next. and cnn's rachel nichols sat down with tiger woods. we have some of that exclusive interview for you right after the break.

12:22 pm
well, the alleged victim in the nfl bullying controversy details through this tarn how he was treated by his teammates for the last year and a half. jonathan martin abruptly left the dolphins amid alleged bullying by his teammates. mainly richie incognito. martin's attorney released a statement on his behalf saying this is not about martin's toughness. rather, quote, jonathan endured harassment that went far beyond the traditional locker room hazing. he endured a malicious physical attack on him by a teammate and daily vulgar comments. i want to bring in rachel nichols, the host of cnn's
12:23 pm
unguarded. martin's lawyer said both he and his family were threatened. is this going to turn into something much bigger than we realize? exposing a dark culture in the locker rooms within the nfl? >> certainly exposing something dark in the miami dolphins locker room. it's important to remember that just like with anything else, every situation is individual. you can't spin this out to the other 31 locker rooms. what is happening and is shining a light on is there have been incidents like this before. this is spurring other players and former players to come out with their story. we had a former st. louis rams player just yesterday say that he went through a hazing ritual where players took bags full of coins and knocked the rookies in the face. obvio obviously, that's something that is not condoned by nfl rules. on the other side, you have people telling their hazing stories and in quotes, because it involved going to get breakfast for the older players and having to participate in a
12:24 pm
rookie talent show that they later recall as one of their fondest memories. it's a wide sliding scale, and the issue is does the league body or individual teams have tostep in and say to players, clearly, you're not able to police yourself because the sliding scale on the bad end is something that shouldn't be happening. if you can't figure out where the line is, do the officials have to step in and say here's the line, you can get sandwiches but you can't hit a guy in the face with a bag of coins. >> are they going to have to go through politically correct classes? that's not something that's going to work well with the tough players. it will be interesting to watch the fallout as we look at other teams and other locker rooms. you also sat down with tiger woods. he's fallen short in some pretty been tournaments lately. you got this reaction to that. let's take a listen. >> so you've had these great wins all over the world. and yet, when there are those big moments on the weekends of the biggest tournaments, you

have in been able to pull through. what is that juxpuposition like for you? >> it's frustrating because i had a chance this year in two of the major championships right there, so i have been there with chances to win on the weekend. i just haven't done it yet. >> as that stretch gets longer and longer without a major, what's that like when it builds? what's that pressure like as it builds and builds? >> for me, i look at the fact it takes a career. you know, for jack, it took him until he was 46. it takes a long time to win a lot of major championships. and you're going to have your years where you play really well. you may clip two or three out of there. and then you're going to have years where you don't win anything. but you're there. just don't happen to win. and you know, quite frankly, over the last -- since '08, i have been there with a chance to win about half of them. just haven't seemed to have won one.
12:26 pm
>> rachel, did he talk psychology? we know how much the mind plays a huge part of how well you play golf. this is a guy who has gone through a lot of personal issues. >> absolutely. yeah, i asked him about that. he said getting the reps in once he was able to get healthy is the framework on which he hung that psychological advancement. once he was able to get over his injuries and just hit ball after ball after ball, he started to feel more comfortable with himself. he didn't have to have all the question marks running around his head. we all know when you're trying to do your work, if you have a bunch of other things going on in your life, it can scatter you and routine can draw you back. he said getting the routine helped him as also his personal life rebuilt. i did ask him about his girlfriend, lindsay vonn, olympic skier, and his kids, one of his most important goals is to be a dad.
12:27 pm
that's more important than golf, which is something he couldn't imagine 10 or 15 years abow. >> thanks. be sure to catch the full interview with tiger tonight on unguarded. >> camden, new jersey, is considered one of the most violent cities in the country. 42% of its population lives below the poverty line. and camden has one of the lowest high school graduation rates in the state, but one cnn hero is on a mission to turn all that around. >> who are we? are you ready? >> you know. >> it's very hard for children growing up in camden today. it's dangerous. you can hear gunshots almost every other night. these kids want more. they don't want to be dodging bullets for the rest of their life. my name is tawanda jones and my mission is to empower the youth of camden university through this drill team.
12:28 pm
what i try to do in order for them to go to the right path is i simple. you instill discipline. drill team is a facade to bring these children in because it's something they love to do. once i have them, i introduce them to the college life. css changed me a whole lot. my dad was shot and killed. my dad passed, i stopped going to class. i started hanging with the wrong people. >> did you complete your hoe homework? let me check it. >> without her, i don't know where i would be. >> in camden, the high school graduation rate is 49%. in my program, it's 100% graduate. we have never had a dropout. >> my grades now, i have a gpa of 3.0. i want to be a sports manager. >> we need to take back our city. most importantly, take back our youth. let them know we care about them. >> i don't think people really understand how important it is

vo: oppounity. that's the real walmart. of their type 2 diabetes with non-insulin victoza®. for a while, i took a pill to lower my blood sugar, but it didn't get me to my goal. so i asked my doctor about victoza®. he said victoza® is different than pills. victoza® is proven to lower blood sugar and a1c. it's taken once-a-day, any time, and comes in a pen. and the needle is thin. victoza® is not for weight loss, but it may help you lose some weight. victoza® is an injectable prescription medicine that may improve blood sugar in adults with type 2 diabetes when used with diet and exercise. it is not recommended as the first medication to treat diabetes and should not be used in people with type 1 diabetes or diabetic ketoacidosis. victoza® has not been studied with mealtime insulin. victoza® is not insulin. do not take victoza® if you have a personal or family history of medullary thyroid cancer,
12:32 pm
multiple endocrine neoplasia syndrome type 2, or if you are allergic to victoza® or any of its ingredients. symptoms of a serious allergic reaction may include: swelling of face, lips, tongue, or throat, fainting or dizziness, very rapid heartbeat, problems breathing or swallowing, severe rash or itching. tell your doctor if you get a lump or swelling in your neck. serious side effects may happen in people who take victoza®, including inflammation of the pancreas (pancreatitis), which may be fatal. stop taking victoza® and call your doctor right away if you have signs of pancreatitis, such as severe pain that will not go away in your abdomen or from your abdomen to your back, with or without vomiting. tell your doctor about all the medicines you take and if you have any medical conditions. taking victoza® with a sulfonylurea or insulin may cause low blood sugar. the most common side effects are nausea, diarrhea, and headache. some side effects can lead to dehydration, which may cause kidney problems. if your pill isn't giving you the control you need ask your doctor about non-insulin victoza®.

it's covered by most health plans. well, the u.s. appears to be on the verge of a diplomatic breakthrough. officials have been seeking since 2000. that's the year the u.s. first sanctioned iran for its nuclear program. now, after all these years of suspicion and stalemate, all eyes are on geneva. that's where secretary of state john kerry and other stop officials are hashing out the details of an agreement. it would ease some economic sanctions against iran and iran would apparently give up some of its nuclear capability to keep it from making nukes, but israel's leader, always concerned about the rivlg of an attack, said iran is getting everything and paying nothing. >> they're paying nothing because they're not reducing in any way their nuclear enrichment capability. so iran got the deal of the
12:34 pm
century. and the international community got a bad deal. this is a very bad deal. >> with me now, cnn international's jim clanlsy. what do you think? very bad deal. did iran indeed get everything and pay nothing? >> i believe iran when it says it wants to see sanctioned lifted. i believe them 100% because the sapgzs are painful. they can't reap the rewards of their own petrochemicals, their oil trade. they're under pressure, their economic is suffering for it. when we get to the nuclear angle, you have to ask, what does iran really want? what do its past actions tell us about what it is doing today? >> the past actions say they haven't stopped building nukes. >> well, they haven't stopped enriching. they're driving to obtain the knowledge necessary to build a bomb. that's what appears obvious to most people who are experts in this field.
12:35 pm
20,000 secentrifuges in order t manufacture their own nuclear fuel. everybody else that is a fledgling nuclear energy participant want to by their fuel from someone else, iran says it wants to make it themselves. this is a problem. there has to be guaranteed. that's what the deal has to produce, the kind of guarantees that say they can't break out and suddenly create a nuclear weapon. >> but can you trust those guarantees? >> well, that's what you have to do. you have to trust that there is some kind of a deal that you can arrange, that the iranians can give up something, agree to someone. you can put u.n. inspectors in there, that can give you good signs, good information and intelligence of what's going on inside of there. the opposite of that is a military strike that would literally blind you. a lot of people say, look, this is an opportunity to make some progress, to make a deal that's going to have to work both ways. >> is this about balance of power and not about an attack in. >> when it comes to israel,
12:36 pm
everybody says israel is afraid they're going to strike them with a nuclear weapon. they're not. they know iran is not going to drop the bomb on israel. it would be regime-ending in its response. israel would retaliate with overwhelming force. the iranians know it, the israelis know it. instead, what the israelis are worried about is a complete shift in balance of power. it has hezbollah and lebanon. it has other groups in iraq. groups that are active all over the region, as far away as latin america, in asia, in other places. iran seeks to become a regional, and indeed, a world power. if it has a nuclear power, it can push. israel fears that balance of power would be upset to its detriment. >> jim back from two months in israel. >> toronto mayor rob ford. i tell you what, he's the gift that keeps on giving.

admitting he had smoked crack cocaine, the salacious and very damaging headlines for toronto mayor rob ford just keep on coming. and this just in. apparently, the mayor's radio talk show that he cohosts with his brother has been canceled by mutual agreement. apparently, it was the last
12:41 pm
straw after the toronto star released a bizarre video that shows the embattled mayor staggering around and making violent threats against somebody. here's a sample. >> i'm going to kill [ bleep ]. i'm telling you. mike tyson. i'll fight him. >> he dies or i die, brother. brother, you're never seeing me -- i need ten minutes to make sure he's dead. it will be over in 5 minutes. it will be -- i don't want to sink -- my brothers, don't tell me we're liars, thieves. birds? birds? it hurts.
12:42 pm
[ bleep ], [ bleep ], i need 15 minutes. all i need. no interference, brother. if i win, i will [ bleep ] donate -- >> oh, boy. cnn does not know the full context of that video or with whom ford is referring. but moments after that video came out, the mayor did respond. he admitted embarrassment and shame. and of course, he said he was drunk. >> i hope none of you have ever or will ever be in that state. and that's all i can say. >> can you tell us what it was about? >> can you give us some context, mayor? >> obviously, i was extremely, extremely inebriated. >> ford's family is coming to his defense. his sister told cnn affiliate that his brother does not have a drug problem. >> robby is not a drug addict. i know because i am a former
12:43 pm
addict or an addict, if you want to say. and as an alcoholic, if you want to consider binge drinking once every three months and you get totally plastered, which he makes a fool out of himself, and i have asked him to leave my own home one time. fine. >> and ford's mother broke it down even further, saying her son just needs to think better and adopt a better lifestyle. >> get yourself a driver. then after that, you do something about your weight. and then thirdly, what was the other thing i told him? >> about the car. the thing -- >> yeah. >> alcohol detector. >> an alcohol detector in the car. and that will prove you can't drive your car. >> well, critics say time has run out for ford, and that he should step down and get rehab.
12:44 pm
but mayor ford says he's not going anywhere. here to discuss this from new york, hln's host jane velez-mitchell, legal analyst, sunny hostin. jane, i'm going to go to you and i want to talk real here. you're a recovering alcoholic. come on. this guy needs help. he needs rehab. >> look, as a recovering alcoholic with 18 years of sobriety, hopefully 19 year physical i get to april, i look at this and i see the incomprehensible demoralization of addiction. i don't know if he's an alcoholic and a drug addict, but the substance itself is not so important. this guy is in deep, deep, deep denia denial. you probably look at this and say how can he be in denial about having a problem when the evidence is right there on tape? but that is the insanity of addiction. you see, because when we're in our disease, our body, our soul, our mind, totally co-opted by the craving. all we want is that next drink,
12:45 pm
that next hit. and anything that stands in the way of that is incomprehensible to us. so if he were to admit that he had a problem, that would mean he would have to get help. that would mean he would have to stop drinking and/or using, and if that's a fate worse than death for somebody in their disease. only when they hit bottom and see themselves clearly and have that moment of clarity where we see ourselves as others see us that we go, oh, my gosh, it's like that look in the mirror. that's when we can surrender to our powerlessness over the drug or alcohol and get help. >> first of all, i think that counseling with jane velez-mitchell would be a fabulous idea. on the other side of things, i mean, sunny, from a legal perspective, okay, he's saying he's not going to step down. so i mean, does he need to be formally charged? i hate to say this, but does he need to be driving under the influence and kill somebody before this guy can be taken out of office? i mean, how extreme does it have to go? >> it has to be pretty extreme.
12:46 pm
and since the story broke, i have been looking into this because this is happening in canada, not here in the united states. but i have got to tell you, what i have learned is he cannot be removed from office legally unless he's convicted of a crime. and so he really is on pretty firm legal footing at this point. what is strange to me is that he has not even been charged with a crime, because we know that he has been found on videotape smoking crack cocaine. and those circumstances, kyra, are very similar to the marion berry circumstances, and he certainly in my district where i prosecuted cases in d.c., was convicted of a misdemeanor drug crime. and spent about six months in federal prison. >> and he also came back and is in office to this day, which is remarkable. we'll be following this because apparently there are more videos about to be reloosed. jane, sunny, thanks so much. >> thanks, kyra. >> up next, matthew mcconaughey drops a ton of weight for a movie. but after tom hanks' diabetes

hollywood actors have a long tradition of gaining or losing weight to make their characters more believable. a prime example is matthew mcconaughey in the new film "the dallas buyers club" in which he portrays a rodeo star with hiv. the actor dropped 40 pounds to get that desired look, but it's
12:51 pm
a risky practice. jake tapper will have much more on this on "the lead" at the top of the hour. hey, jake. >> hey, how are you? we will be taking a look at this in the pop culture lead towards the end of the show. a lot of actors who have done this have managed to snag not only the respect of their peers but those academy awards. you have robert deniro gaining and losing weight to film "raging bull." tom hanks in "philadelphia" playing a victim of hiv and in "monster," also. we talked to a nutrition expert because you may know this, a few weeks ago, tom hanks talked about how he has diabetes and thinks the weight loss and weight gain he's gone through for his career has maybe contributed. here's what this nutritionist had to say. >> matthew mcconaughey and jared leto have done this many times for different roles, up, down, up, down, and each successive
12:52 pm
attempt at huge, dramatic weight loss gets harder and harder for the body to accomplish easily. so that's another part of the sort of, if you will, depression or discouragement that a lot of celebrities feel. it's like the endless cycle of going up, going down, and each successive attempt getting a little bit more challenging. >> so it can be a health issue, but of course, it helps individuals, it helps actors convince the audience that they are truly near death in the instance of "philadelphia" when they are playing victims of hiv. it also of course can help with critics and with the academy. but it can really have an adverse impact on an actor's health. we'll take a look at this in the pop culture lead at the end of the show coming up at 4:00. >> sounds good. thanks so much. that starts in just a few minutes. mine was earned orbiting the moon in 1971.
