tv CNN Newsroom With Carol Costello CNN September 5, 2014 6:00am-7:01am PDT
to be visually, she was so real and authentic and that's why she was one of the greats. we get to you carol costello, the friday edition of "newsroom." >> happy friday, have a great weekend. "newsroom" starts now. -- captions by vitac -- www.vitac.com good morning, i'm carol costello. thank you so much for joining me. we begin this hour with breaking news on the economy. just minutes ago we learned that 142,000 new jobs were created last month. it's a big disappointment from the 200,000 plus that most experts had predicted. the unemployment rate inches down a bit from 6.2% to 6.1%, but let's break down the numbers, shall we, chief business correspondent christine romans and to add some perspective, james shirk, senior policy analyst at the her thait f foundation. christine give us a big picture.
>> disappointing figure. coming in at 142,000 jobs created after six months of over 200,000, it shows the streak of solid jobs growth has been broken. that's what economists and people in markets and people who study labor markets are looking was this an isolated blip or shows a little bit of flagging in the u.s. economy in the late summer but this has been a good performance and now you've got a little bit of a pullback, 1 142,000. i liked the kinds of sectors growing. you saw business and professional services tend to be higher paid jobs, i saw construction jobs in there, saw a lot of different jobs, retail lost some. this is the unemployment rate here. look at how it has fallen. it fell in part this month because people were leaving the workforce, so that's falling for not necessarily the right reason, but 6.1% is still a decent number. you want to continue to see that coming down so disappointing jobs growth we saw. look now for the year you've got about well it's a little bit shy
of that for the year of what we've had for monthly jobs growth. you want to see it stay above 200,000. it is but there are concerns about the fact it was only 142,000 jobs created this month, carol. that is disappointing, shows that streak of really good months has been broken, carol. >> it sure does. so james, the recession officially ended more than five years ago, even though a lot of americans sure don't feel like it ended. why do you think this recovery has been so sluggish? >> well i think that government policy has contributed. we know that the federal reserb banks have conducted multiple surveys showing that the president's raised the cost of health care and businesses are hiring fewer workers because of this. you had an unusually sharp recession and the government did coming out of that was quite harmful. i think the number is worse than what the official statistics show. alan krueger, the former chairman of president obama's council of economic advisers came out with a new paper two
weeks ago he found the official unemployment rate is understating unemployment because a lot of people getting interviewed who don't have jobs don't answer the surveyors. if you accounted for the fact that a lot of the people who dropped out of the labor force just aren't answering the survey, things would look even worse than the official numbers actually show. >> christine, do you agree? >> you know, i think these numbers have been doing better and better all year in terms of job creation but when you look at the internal statistics, carol, there are still some big concerns. people dropping out of the labor force. labor force participation rate just above 62%, that's the worst since sometime in the 1970s so that's a real problem that needs to be addressed. also the underemployment rate, people working part-time but would like to be working full time, not getting the kind of work they are, underemployed in this economy that's still too high so we have seen what i think is a two-speed recovery here, carol, for people who have the right skills in the right industries, they're getting
bonuses, they're getting hired, they're getting sought are by recruiters. for people who don't have those skills that don't have the education for the part of the economy that's moving, for them, this economy is not getting very much better. >> christine romans and james sherk, thank you for your insight. if you have questions about this morning's jobs report christine is hosting a live facebook chat with secretary tom perez at faceback.com/cnnmoney. u.s. secretary of state john kerry is talking more about the coalition to stop isis. he's been meeting with leaders on the sidelines of the event. reuters is reporting that so far, nine other countries besides the united states are involved in talks for the coalition. they include the uk, france, germany, italy, denmark, turkey, poland, canada, and australia. kerry emphasized a red line for every country involved, no boots on the ground. in the meantime nato members have agreed to form a new
spearhead force. here's nato secretary-general anders rasmussen. >> today we agreed to create what i would call a spearhead within our response force, a high force able to deploy at very short notice. this spearhead will include several thousand land troops ready to deploy within a few days with air, sea and special forces support. >> cnn white house correspondent michelle kosinski joins us from cardiff, wales, to tell us what this means. >> reporter: when asked about how do you concretely fight isis, what is the practical plan, the u.s. has been repeatedly emphasizing the need for an international coalition. we've been hearing about it for days. we weren't sure how it would take shape in a real sense at
the nato summit but today we're seeing secretary of state john kerry and defense secretary chuck hagel meeting with nine other countries and they put out some of their words, their addresses and some plans. goals would be military support, humanitarian assistance, trying to stop the flow of foreign fighters that are of such concern to the national security of these european countries as well as the united states, trying to take away the funding from isis, and trying to delegitimize its ideology. secretary of state kerry also said that they want to form this multinational task force that would share information among all these countries about the travels of these foreign fighters. you can see how that would be useful and he also clearly wanted to make clear what many thought was unclear in the president's words about fighting isis the other day. here's what kerry just said. there is no contained policy for
isis. they're an ambitious, avowed, genocidal, territorial-grabbing, caliphate-desiring quasi-state within a regular army and leaving them in some capacity anywhere would leave a cancer in place that will ultimately come back to haupt us. so there is no issue in our minds build our determination to build this coalition and go after this." he laid out this year's long possibility but he emphasized in his remarks to these nations that together this coalition does have the ability to defeat, not contain, but to defeat isis, carol. >> all right, michelle kosinski reporting live for us this morning. next hour, we're expecting to hear more from several leaders as the nato summit wraps up, including british prime minister david cameron. at 11:30 eastern cnn special could havage when president obama is expected to speak. a memorial service for steven sotloff will be held at a miami temple this afternoon.
florida governor rick scott ordered all state and local buildings to fly flags at half staff today to honor the american journalist beheaded by isis. the public is welcome to attend. and the fbi is looking at whether a boston man is behind some of the social media used by isis to recruit new members. ahmad abousamra is on the fbi's most wanted terror list. he's been on the run for five years, believed to have last been in syria. cnn's deborah feyerick looks at why this man would be a highly prized asset for the terror group. >> reporter: intelligence sources say it makes sense that isis would want to recruit a guy like american ahmad abousamra. he grew up near boston, holds both a syrian and u.s. passport and graduated from northeastern university in boston with a degree in the field of computer technology, believed to be in his early 30s, abousamra is fluent in both english and
arabic. the fbi released this audio recording they say is abousamra. it's unclear who he's speaking to. >> if they don't have a warrant they don't have the right to do that. make sure to tell your mother that next time because they scare scare her. >> reporter: a law enforcement official tells cnn looking into whether he might be involved in the murder group's media wing, english social media, facebook, an online magazine and twitter which recently suspended the group's account. abousamra's friend, american tarek mukana was accused of heading the media wing in iraq. he's currently serving 17 years in the u.s. for trproviding materiel support to terrorists. in 2009 they attended terrorist training karpz. abousamra was last seen in syria with a woman and child believed to be his wife and daughter.
ironically two years ago the fbi tried using facebook and twitter to find abousamra. >> obviously we take very seriously the threat of american citizens who join terror organizations and think about options for taking them off the battlefield that your u.s. citizenship cannot be a shield if you take up arms against the united states. >> reporter: deborah feyerick, cnn, new york. a bit of brighter news this morning, we understand and this is according to reuters that ukraine and pro-russian rebels signed an agreement on a kroo ef in eastern ukraine that will start later tonight. let's head to kiev and check in with reza sayah. do you think this is the real deal? >> reporter: it feels real, carol. it feels different and it looks like the first piece of good news in a long time, and there's indications now that after a long and costly conflict in southeastern ukraine these two sides have established an
indefinite cease-fire. we're getting word from the twitter account of the pro-russian rebels in southeastern ukraine that they have signed a cease-fire agreement in the city of minsk, belarus. we have yet to hear from government officials here in kiev. all of this taking place are a roughly two-hour meeting in the city of minsk, where all the parties involved in this conflict both directly and indirectly met today and after the meeting, it was announced that a cease-fire has been established. now we're still waiting for an official announcement to understand the terms and the conditions of this agreement, but coming into this meeting the speculations, the conditions of this agreement included a halt to all military operations in southeastern ukraine, the pulling out of all troops, exchanging of the soldiers that have been captured on both sides, the establishments of humanitarian corridors so people can get out of the region to get
help and humanitarian aid, could come in and the positioning of international monitors to make sure that these conditions were met. coming into today, some western leaders, some nato member states were skeptical of this plan. they continued to criticize moscow saying perhaps this was a ploy by russia, a ploy by russian president vladimir putin to avoid and delay sanctions and buy more time for russian rebels who were gaining significant ground in southeastern ukraine, but despite that criticism, it looks like a cease-fire is in place so after a conflict that cost more than 2,500 lives and injured 10,000 people, it looks like for now there's an indefinite cease-fire in place. we're waiting for an official announcement. it should come in the coming hours and we should point out k p.m. local time, in about two hours, that's when the cease-fire is officially set to take place and that's when we watch the battlefield to see if
both sides heed this cease-fire and finally stop the fighting. carol? >> i hope it is the real deal. it sounds like it. reza sayah reporting live from kiev this morning. the third american infected with the deadly ebola virus back on u.s. soil. he arrived in omaha, nebraska, early this morning are a flight from liberia. he was not directly treating ebola patients but delivering babies at a hospital in monrovia when he became infected. he will be treated in a special biocontainment unit at the nebraska medical center. still to come in "the newsroom," there are two investigations into the death of comedian joan rivers. nischelle turner is live with the story. >> there are questions remain what happened at the clinic. two state investigations could begin to answer those questions. we'll have that story next. narrator: summer.

across the globe, tributes are paving the way for joan rivers who said that laughter was the key to getting through almost any situation. she pulled no punches and with a career spanning several decades it is clear her legions of fans could not get enough of her biting sense of humor. >> it was weird things about aging that i didn't realize. >> it's very hard if you are
attractive. you guys don't have to worry, but you, you have to worry. i have friends and i'm not going to name names -- goldie hawn -- that can't get any older. she said would you believe i have a grownup daughter and i'm going to go, yes. all that counts is sex appeal, am i right? oh, look how quiet the room suddenly got. oh please. that's why i have no sex appeal which kills me. the only way i hear heavy breathing from my husband's side of the bed is when he's having an asthma attack. >> you met -- >> the queen of england. >> after the joke about the stamp? >> i take it all back. >> what was the joke you did some time ago? >> i said a couple of things about the queen, i said she sits like this, and no one has the guts to say your highness [ whistles ].
1, my mother said only a doctor for you. when i was 22, all right, lawyer, cpa. 240 she said grab a den ty, 26 she said anything. can we talk about cleaning? i hate to clean! do you clean your house? i'm so glad. do you have a house? oh i don't clean my house because i have an apartment. my kitchen is so dirty my mice wear spikes. >> we bring in cheryl underspood, comedian and co-host on "the talk." good morning cheryl. thank you for being with me. >> good morning darling. how are you? >> i'm good. i'm just glad you're not here for a happier thing but joan rivers was on your show what, just a couple weeks ago. tell me what that was like. >> she was on the show previously and for me, you know, i'm kind of new to daytime tv
and i'm one of those trench standup comics and to know i was going to meet the great joan rivers, you know, because you study her, any great comic studies the greats, so if you want to be great, you have to study the greats. here i am getting ready to meet joan rivers. we had a private moment because both of our husbands ended their lives in the same way. so you know, for people that know joan rivers' sharp tongue that kind of throws the barbs, she was such a sweet soul and sweet spirit and very motherly, mentor, but she could tell a joke with the best of them. she was a comic's comic, one woman, one mike, and she's just going to be truly missed. >> a couple of nights ago i watched the documentary about joan rivers and i was surprised about just how insecure she seemed and how much she wanted to constantly be loved.
did you get that sense from talking with her? >> well i think comics have this thing that draws us together. it may come out as insecurity, but once you stand on that stage, you're a lion. you know what i'm saying? i think it's from everything that we go through, from a woman who is supposed to be an ugly duckling that goes on to be this icon in fashion, entrepreneur in fashion, a woman who is so genius she writes a movie test where a man billy crystal gets pregnant, writes a movie, stockard channing gets plastic surgery and gets revenge on everybody. i'm going to talk about her as a girl because she was ageless and timeless so here she was ph phi beta kapa, fighting her way on stage. insecurity, i'm not sure, a vulnerability, a reserve, a privateness but also if you looked in the documentary, her
work ethic, how she approached the mechanics of comedy unmatched man or woman, male or female, there will never be another joan rivers. melissa, praying for you, love you. she was a great mother to not just her daughter but a lot of female comics and a grandmother and just a jazzy and if i can say this with love, a great o broad. >> you can. do you think she got the respect she deserved? >> absolutely. absolutely, and when there was an impersonator using her material, she sued him, and that's the kind of street swag that we loved about joan rivers. she didn't take any smack. you don't mess with her family, you don't mess with her friends and i think what's shocking us all is because she seemed forever young. you know? she always looked great, so we were startled. this is one of those shocking type deaths pause death is
inevitable. god does not make mistakes. we'll lean on god but thank him for being even to have a joan rivers, to be around her, to meet her, you know. you may not have agreed with her jokes but you can't say she was not funny, smart and talented, and loved and respected. >> i couldn't have said it better. sheryl underwood, thank you for your insight. i sure appreciate it. >> thank you, and heaven's having a great comedy show right now. >> that's right. >> we love you, joan. >> awesome, thank you, sheryl. sadly this morning there are two separate investigations surrounding joan rivers' death. the new york health department is investigating the outpatient clinic where she was undergoing an elective procedure and then suddenly went into cardiac arrest. separately the new york medical examiner's office is looking into how rivers died. nischelle turner is here with that part of the story. >> absolutely. it is sad her death is surrounded by so many questions but her family, her friends and
her loved ones and her fans are desperate to know what went wrong at that clinic. this morning, two investigations into the death of legendary comidienne joan rivers under way. new york state officials looking a full investigation into the outpatient clinic where the tony nominated star went into cardiac arrest during a throat procedure last week. rivers was then rushed to mt. sinai hospital where she remained on life support until she passed peacefully thursday, according to her daughter, melissa rivers. >> so sorry for your loss, melissa, sorry. >> reporter: medical examiners also requesting an autopsy, as questions are raised as to why an 81-year-old in fine, feisty form, just the night before, doing an hour-long standup event would suddenly stop breathing. >> enjoy your bodies now. oh, out of a brazierre, this is how i go to the bathroom. >> reporter: the emmy winning
comedienne showed no signs of slowing down. >> you have to wear dead animals. i tried and life ones the boy. >> reporter: ever since her debut on "the johnny carson show" in 1961. >> i never cooked when i was single. if the lord wanted women to cook he'd give her aluminum hands. >> reporter: her career skyrocketing through the decades. >> here's joan rivers! >> reporter: becoming the first and only woman to host a network nightly talk show. >> tell a friend the truth, you are still a pig, lose more weight. that's a friend. >> she hadn't done "the tonight show" in i want to say over 26 years. >> reporter: current host jimmy fallon tearing up remembering the first time she returned to "the tonight show." >> she came out and she came over to me and she started crying and gave me a kiss. it was really emotional, and really nice. >> reporter: rivers, a trailblazer for female comics who poured out in remembrance. >> i owe my career to her, no doubt about it.
>> reporter: fellow comedian kathy griffin breaking down on anderson cooper, after he played this clip about a woman who says she never wanted to stop making people laugh. >> i'll show you fear. that's fear. if my book ever looked like this, it would mean that nobody wants me, that everything i ever tried to do in life didn't work. nobody cared. i've been totally forgotten. >> reporter: at the hollywood walk of fame her legions of fans prove the iconic comedian's fears were misplaced. >> if anything happens, melissa -- >> reporter: in 2012, rivers' humor took a serious turn with her daughter, before undergoing plastic surgery, she assured melissa that if anything happens, her time was well spent. >> i've had an amazing life. if it ended right now, amazing life, and life is so much fun. it's one big movie.
>> one big movie. you know what i was saying earlier that successful hollywood movies have a couple things, compelling characters, they have a rise and fall of the characters and reinvention and redemption. if her life was like a hollywood movie yes very successful. sheryl underwood called her jazzy, i love that description, she was jazzy. >> i do, too. nischelle turner thanks so much. >> sure. >> we'll be right back.

good morning, i'm carol costello. i'd like to welcome our viewers from around the world. good morning, everyone. thank you for joining me. we're following the breaking news i told you moments ago, ukraine and pro-russian rebels signed a cease-fire agreement during negotiations, according to separatist leaders, that will go into effect in just about 90 minutes. joining me now to break it down cnn's matthew chance, he's in moscow and cnn's reza sayah is in kiev. i want to start with you, reza. you say we've heard this song before but you say this time is feels real. why? >> reporter: yes, it feels real because we've heard from all sides. we've heard some pro-russian
rebels who, through their twitter account saying the cease-fire agreement has been signed. we heard from ukrainian president petro poroshenko, he, too, used his twitter account to say a preliminary protocol for a cease-fire had been signed, but we should point out there's been so much misinformation from both sides during this conflict, so many frustratingly ambiguous statements. we want to be very cautious in reporting this but based on the information we have, indeed an indefinite cease-fire has been signed that will presumably put an end to this incredibly long conflict that has lasted for more than four months. we're still waiting to clarify what the conditions of this agreement are, but leading into this meeting in minsk, belarus there was speculation among the conditions were of course an end to all military operations in southeastern ukraine, the pulling out of troops, the banning of all military flights
going over the conflict zone, the establishment of a humanitarian corridor who sofr wants to get out of the conflict zone can and humanitarian aid can go in and the positioning of international monitors who would make sure all these conditions would be met, leading into today's meeting in minsk, there were many western leaders, many neighbor states who were skeptical, even criticizing the process saying this was a ploy perhaps by moscow, a ploy by russian president vladimir putin to avoid more sanctions and buy more time for a pro-russian rebels that were making tremendous gains in the battlefields in southeastern ukraine but carol, despite that criticism it looks like these two sides established a cease-fire that sets the stage for them to tackle those big issues, those core demands that were not addressed in this cease-fire that have yet to be resolved. carol? >> all right, now to matthew chance in moscow. matthew, if this is the real deal, why now?
>> reporter: well i also concur it is the real deal. that's certainly what it looks like this, cease-fire has come out of negotiations between the various parties, russia and ukraine particularly, but also crucially the pro-russian rebels took part in these negotiations as well. why it's the real deal, why now? because vladimir putin essentially began this initiative. the russian leader has always held all the strings in this conflict. he's the one who essentially promoted this seven-point plan that was discussed today and appears to have been signed. there was a telephone conversation between him and his ukrainian counterpart, petro poroshenko, on wednesday, in which they both said they had agreed the outlines for a peace deal, and so yes, it looks like it is going through. the devil though, carol, will be in the detail. now you know, reza mentioned some of the points that were laid out there by vladimir putin
in his peace plan. the crucial one is this. the russians demanded that the ukrainian military withdraw from population centers, and not just withdraw from them, but withdraw beyond missile range from population centers into luhansk and donetsk regions in eastern ukraine. that would leave the pro-russian rebels with an enormous territory that would effectively be under their control and of course de facto under moscow's control, which would, in a sense, achieve what many had speculated vladimir putin had set out to achieve in the first place, dismembering ukraine and essentially giving moscow sway over those russian-speaking areas in the east and south of the country. >> fascinating. matthew chance in moscow, reza sayah in kiev, thanks to both of you. i'll be right back.
before this month is out the georgia father whose son died after being left for hours in a hot car will know if he faces the death penalty. justin harris was indicted on malice, murder, felony murder and cruelty to children. his 22-month-old son cooper was left strapped in a car seat in june while georgia temperatures soared to over 90 degrees and harris went to work. joining me is terrance holloway.
thank you for being here. >> thanks for having me. >> first of all let's look at the two murder charges, malice and felony. what is the difference? >> malice murder is an intentional death, it indicates premeditation and deliberation, something that was planned in advance and particularly cruel. felony murder on the other hand is a death that occurs as a consequence of a felony, in this particular case they charged two different counts of felony murder, one is based on malice, a second is based on criminal negligence, which seemingly flies in the face of the malice theo theory. oftensometimes it's a good prosecutorial strategy to give a jury something else to hang their hat on if they can't reach consensus about malice murder. >> got you. why haven't prosecutors decided yet whether they'll go for the death penalty? >> they indicated yesterday that they will make that decision in the next week or two, sometime prior to arraignment. under georgia law in order to
seek the death penalty, that notice has to be served on the defendant in open court prior to arraignment, so we should know shortly if that's going to happen. >> harris is also charged with sexting to minors. how does that play into the case? >> well, what that is, is the prosecutor it seems to me is trying to paint a picture of what was in the defendant's head in the months and weeks prior to the child's unfortunate death. in order for them to convince a jury that this father, seemingly a loving father, would plan to kill his child in this way, they have to give the jury what was in his head. they have to show motive and that i think is what these other counts are all about. >> how would that show motive that he was so involved in sexting like single women and minors out there, that he didn't want to be married anymore or have a child? >> that's exactly right. at the probable cause hearing they said that, they said that their theory was he wanted to live a child-free life and that
is what these other charges point to, and if they can prove them and convince a jury that that was his motive, he may very well face the death penalty. >> interesting. so prosecutors also hinting to charges others in the case. the lawyer for harris' wife says he's surprised they're still considering any charges. do you think they'll charge her? >> that's the $64,000 question carol, everybody seems to want to know that. i don't think she's off the hook. if they -- they interviewed her at length in this investigation. if they can find any statement that she made that might not be true or that might implicate her in this death, i suspect they will charge her. the fact that she was not charged yesterday in this indictment does not necessarily mean that she will not. >> all right, philip holloway thank you for your insight. we appreciate it. >> great, thanks for having me. >> thanks for being here. still to come in "the newsroom." >> help, help! we're stuck in the water and there is a shark!

shark was searching for food but when it bit the kayak it decided there was no food there. so apparently it just moved on. those are lucky girls. still could number in "the newsroom," richard sherman ignites seattle's legion of boom defense. rachel nichols sat down with the nickel back for tonight's "unguarded.
