tv CNN Newsroom With Brooke Baldwin CNN October 10, 2014 12:00pm-1:01pm PDT
girl should have an identity and recognize and she has equal rights as a boy. >> the youngest winner in the history of the nobel peace prize. we begin with a new round of protests kicking off this hour in the town where an unarmed black teenager was shot and killed by a white police officer. if these protests are going to look anything like what police saw last night in st. louis, a lot of reinforcements may be needed. eight people were arrested during this rally over the death of another black teenager. the teen was killed by a white police officer. his death, however, was different from michael brown's shooting death in august. police say that he was armed and fired at the officer first. let's go to cnn's sara sidner in ferguson for us today. sara, i understand you are just moments away from speaking to the mayor and the police chief for ferguson. >> reporter: we'll sit down with him half an hour ago and the
public relations person for the city said they could not leave their offices at this time. we don't know exactly why they couldn't come but this is all as we know that they are preparing and the city of st. louis preparing for what could be thousands of people descending on the st. louis area for protests scheduled for some time by a group that is protesting what happened here in ferguson on august 9th. that's two months ago. the killing of michael brown at the hands of white police officer daryn wilson who that case is in the hands of the grand jury but another case could inflame tensions and something that happened wednesday in st. louis again involving an 18-year-old black teenager and a white police officer. >> reporter: overnight it turned chaotic. police using pepper spray on a crowd of protesters as the tense
standoff escalates. >> large knife came flying out of the crowd. >> reporter: police were asking the crowd of protesters to disperse around midnight when this knife here on the ground was hurled toward the officers hitting one in the shoulder. >> it shows emotions and how quickly the situation can turn. >> reporter: protesters smashing windows of a police car. someone throwing a brick at this police suv. >> i understand the emotions but there are some things you just can't tolerate and that's one of them. >> reporter: what started out as a peaceful vigil early thursday evening later reignited anger over the killing of black teenager shot by a white off-duty st. louis police officer working a security job. police say myers was no stranger to them. pictured here for a gun charge back in june. an autopsy revealed the 18 year old was shot seven or eight times. the fatal wound a gunshot to his
right cheek. a call for justice reminiscent of the outrage over unarmed teenager michael brown's shooting only two months ago. allegedly with his hands up, brown was shot six times by a white police officer only 12 miles away in ferguson, missouri. a grand jury is currently hearing the case and will decide if charges will be brought against officer daryn wilson. but this most recent shooting may be different. police say myers fired a .9 millimeter pistol and the officer fired 17 times. the weapon recovered at the scene. myers' family members insist the teenager was unarmed and holding a sandwich at the time. >> he had a right to have a life just like anyone else. >> reporter: and some people are building their own narrative expressing distrust of the st. louis police department. >> it's a clear case of this young man being gunned down by insensitive white officer off
duty. he chased him off a corner. >> reporter: protesters pushing the limit with police and burning the american flag. in this divided community, racial tensions and nerves on edge again. >> this is shaping up to be a very big weekend with the multiple protests and rallies taking place there. what exactly might we expect to see? >> reporter: there are protests scheduled both in st. louis and here in ferguson. one is scheduled just an hour from now outside of the prosecuting attorney's office and that is who is handed over the evidence to the grand jury, which is still looking at whether or not to indict officer daryn wilson for the killing of the ferguson teenager michael brown. that's been a very contentious issue. a lot of protesters are angry at how long this is taking. they expected that decision mid october. that's pushed to mid november.
they say justice is taking too long. >> what about plans by law enforcement? will there be changes that we might expect to see in terms of how they respond or how they are patrolling these areas? >> reporter: we do know that the departments are all beefed up. they are all looking at more officers making sure for example in st. louis that there are two officers who respond to any conflicts instead of one and we do know that there are 12-hour shifts. these guys will be more people working around the clock. what we have noticed here in ferguson over the past two months or so since the shooting of michael brown is that when you first saw this explode, there were departments that brought out military equipment. it wasn't ferguson itself but st. louis brought out military equipment. that's all stopped. what we're seeing is st. louis county has taken over really when it comes to the protesters here in ferguson and they managed to keep things fairly calm. usually protests happen every
night. there haven't been arrests in ferguson but in st. louis, a different story last night. >> sara sidner, keep an eye on things for us there. we appreciate that. thank you. not everyone agrees that an injustice was done in the shooting death of myers. police say that he was armed when he was shot and killed by an officer. now just a short time ago i spoke with kevin jackson, executive director of the black sphere and he gave me his take on the protests happening this week and much more. >> if a person believes or a group believes that there is something to fight for, they are entitled to do that. i think that the black community is going to at some point get very tired of leftist and leftism and liberalism of saying here's another injustice against you when there's not an injustice there. if a perpetrator shoots at a cop, he's going to get shot back. and that's the cop's responsibility to protect the
neighborhood. at some point i think we're going to tire of this and the backlash is going to be evident in the ballot box. >> kevin jackson speaking with us earlier. missing in north korea. no, not another american. kim jong-un, the leader of the country. where is he? cnn's erin burnett joins us to talk about who may be running the communist nation next. have you heard what the ceo of microsoft said about women asking for raises? if not, you will. his words raising eyebrows and plenty of criticism. microsoft bored member who asked the question that led to the controversial comments will join us live. ed member who asked the question that led to the controversial comments will join us live. d member who asked the question that led to the controversial comments will join us live. member who asked the question that led to the controversial comments will join us live. a member who asked the question that led to the controversial comments will join us live. r member who asked the question that led to the controversial comments will join us live. d member who asked the question that led to the controversial comments will join us live.

almost clear in just 4 months. humira can lower your ability to fight infections, including tuberculosis. serious, sometimes fatal infections and cancers, including lymphoma, have happened; as have blood, liver, and nervous system problems, serious allergic reactions, and new or worsening heart failure. before treatment, get tested for tb. tell your doctor if you've been to areas where certain fungal infections are common, and if you've had tb, hepatitis b, are prone to infections, or have flu-like symptoms or sores. don't start humira if you have an infection. set a new goal today. ask your dermatologist about humira. because with humira clearer skin is possible.
at last check, kim jong-un still m.i.a. overnight he missed a ceremonial palace visit to the remains of his father and grandfather and make no mistake, that was a big deal. we know that he had gout. not good for the ego to limp around your umpire but could it be something more sinister? joining me now is erin burnett to talk more about this. when it comes to north korea, there's much we don't know. what do we know? >> that's the big question. it's pretty amazing. we found out that he had a child and that it was a little girl from dennis rodman. perspective on this. in a lot of ways we know that state media has been more open about kim jong-un than his father. one thing we know, he has always been seen in public. 25 times a month. 15 times a month. all of a sudden not seen at all. that's really strange for a leader who loves the camera.
the last time the world saw north korea's young leader kim jong-un he was clearly limping on his way to a rock concert. he's a man whose every move has been glorified in word and music. he craves the spotlight whether riding horse, going to the amusement park or hanging out with basketball star dennis rodman so his five-week disappearance from the public eye fueled endless rumors of bad health, a coup, even death. >> north korea in one way is a cult and a cult leader has to be seen especially a new leader so kim jong-un toured around the country and then all of a sudden he disappeared. he hasn't been seen in public since september 3. that by itself if nothing more indicates that there's something really wrong. >> reporter: a family history of gout and diabetes coupled with kim's ballooning size and that recent limp led many people to speculate that he's seriously ill. one story going so far as to suggest his ankles were crushed under his own weight. then there's the political
intrigue. last year kim's uncle fell out of favor supposedly over a power struggle. that uncle was executed. some say by machine gun. in fact, in less than three years he has replaced almost all leaders. >> it's caused great resentment among flag officers and we've seen the same thing in the civilian ranks. there were reports that kim jong-un forced admirals into swimming contests. >> reporter: the u.s. dismisses the idea of a coup, it hasn't stopped speculation over who might replace kim. some say his sister kim yo jong. earlier today, kim appeared to miss another major event. the ceremony to honor his late
father and grandfather on a national holiday. he's never missed it before. who led the ceremony? and then there's another fascinating disappearance. kim's wife. she's disappeared from public view for long periods of time. experts say she may have fallen from favor when she gave birth last year and failed to deliver a son. we know changes in north korea happen without much of a warning. what's the media say? >> it's interesting. more than you might think. indicating that there really is something amiss. the state run newspaper today said there were leaders from overseas who support north korea. they sent mr. kim flowers on the anniversary and they said that they wrote with a note on the flowers that they wished him good health. some experts say, you know, they wouldn't say good health if he was in good health. there is speculation about that. and then that limping incident. you saw that on state run
television in north korea. they reported that as a sign of look at how hard he's working. he'll work through any pain. there's been acknowledgement of these issues in state run media. it's pretty incredible in so many senses how in this day in age we can know so little and grasp onto these little -- >> about a country we fear so much. >> the daily beast was reporting that part of the reason he's so fat is he wants to be fat to mimic his father who was 5'2" and 200 pounds. >> same stature. >> so stature and shape makes him a bigger leader. >> literally. all right. erin burnett, thank you. nice to see you. appreciate it. you can catch more on kim jong-un tonight on "aarerin burt o outfront."
and let me bring in our next guest. could kim be ruling from his sick bed and maybe afraid of looking weak even though we have seen him limping out there in public? can you hear me okay? >> yes. i can hear you. >> just wondering is it possible that kim could be ruling from his sick bed. is that possible? >> i think that's entirely possible. that was the case for his father and grandfather and i think it's unwarranted to speculate further, any further than the fact that he's physically uncomfortable and we have to realize that in north korea, yes, he's the absolute leader. he doesn't make all kind of decisions. he's not that clever. i don't think with this age and lack of experience he's capable
of making major decisions. in fact, all decisions are made by the party, the labor party and the party has really expertise in all areas. i think in this case how to manage kim jong-un's life is also determined by the party. >> it sounds like you say even if he is sick, it might not matter that much. >> right. right. he's symbolically important but in ingenuity in running the government, it's not him. it's the party. >> how would we know if there had been any type of coup of some sort? >> i mean, you have to -- is there anyone who might have ambition of overthrowing his leadership? north korea is a dynasty. a kim dynasty. in fact, kim jong-un is not ruling. the ultimate authority stems
from his grandfather and his grandfather is like a god in north korean belief system. so no one can dare touch kim's family. i don't think so. but if anything probably sort of royal coup you might say an alternative where persons can emerge as potential leaders but not outside the family can dare challenge his authority. >> and speaking of the family, what do you make of some talk that maybe his sister is actually ruling north korea. >> i think that he has brothers. it's a little far-fetched. also, a female in north korea becoming the head of a state is
also quite far-fetched speblg lags. i don't think the younger sister is in any position to succeed him. i think he's politically healthy. he simply could not come out in that terrible, physical shape limping. i fully expect him to deliver a major speech. after his three top assistants went to south korea and they had some substantive talks, if kim jong-un is going to deliver a major address, it has to be crafted very carefully so he may be working on the address. i wouldn't be surprised if he emerged in the next couple days. >> i'm sure that would be interesting. a lot of people want to see him and hear from him. han park, thank you. so you've seen the video
identify himself and exit the car. >> damn. >> that passenger and his partner who was behind the wheel are suing the hammond police officer alleging excessive force but now jones could be in store for some other legal troubles. the 27 year old faces possible arrest for a 7-year-old misdemeanor drug charge of allegedly dealing pot. jones' attorney is calling the arrest warrant retaliation. the timing they say is extremely suspect. back with me now, cnn legal analyst mel robbins. why bring up this charge and this arrest warrant now? >> there's two reasons. the one reason is if you notice once they tasered him they also arrested him and so now he's in the system and he's fingerpri fingerprinted and what happens in that instance is old arrest warrants come up. so on one hand, you've got a criminal procedure that was
ignited with the arrest and typically warrants come up. on the other hand, this thing is seven years old. they didn't raise it or issue an arrest warrant until after he filed his lawsuit. i don't think it takes a rocket scientist to say that the hammond police are trying to send a message to this guy and the whole thing stinks. >> is it common place that someone who is put in the spotlight for something else and all of a sudden this sort of thing happens? >> that's not very commonplace at all because it looks badly on the police. if you're going to arrest him for failure to obey an officer and refusing to give identification and for disorderly conduct and resisting arrest, what's common is once you book the person other arrest warrants in the system come up. >> they come up automatically or does someone have to go looking for a background check on you? >> depends on the state and jurisdiction. with the clients i was representing when i was a legal
aid attorney here in new york city, they would come up automatically underneath the person's prints, social, name. in this instance, maybe it was an arrest and there was never any warrant issued or maybe it was an arrest and because it's a misdemeanor they gave him a desk appearance ticket which basically says we've arrested you. it's small fry kind of crime. here's your receipt to come back to court and he never showed up. those are less likely to follow up. the timing of this is bogus. >> it's a scare tactic. could it be sort of like don't mess with us because we'll mess with you. >> it could be a scare tactic. it's only a misdemeanor. he's accused -- accused by the way -- of selling weed. it's only a misdemeanor which is going to carry less than a year in jail. i don't know if this guy has a criminal record or not. what i do know is what those police did is traumatizing. i think a lot about the fact that, look, i've been driving for -- how old am i? 46. i've been driving for 30 years.
i've been known to speed and pulled over a few times and never once in 30 years has anyone in my car but me ever been asked for identification. my husband was never asked for identification. my passengers were never asked for identification. >> can it help the officer's case? >> it will make this family dig in and what will make the case worse is what the family and cnn is reported is that these officers that are involved in this have had some other allegations of excessive force settled in the past and so it only makes them look worse if you ask me if they are piling on a misdemeanor charge and arrest. what you're going to see is you're going to see mr. jones surrender himself which will mean he'll be charged and there will be a bail hearing and he has an attorney and he's surrendered and he's not a flight risk and they will release him on his own and that
case from 2007 has nothing to do with what police did. >> great to see you. thank you. women shouldn't ask for raises? those aren't my words. they are the words of microsoft ceo and as you might expect there are plenty of people who are not happy with him. next, the microsoft board member that asked the question that brought that controversial response will join us live. means keeping seven billion ctransactions flowing.g, and when weather hits, it's data mayhem. but airlines running hp end-to-end solutions are always calm during a storm. so if your business deals with the unexpected,

now to microsoft's big fail. i am not talking about computers. i'm talking about its ceo being criticized for what many call the worst career advice ever. he said that women not asking for a raise is "good karma." today he apologized saying he was inarticulate. he made the comments at a women in computing conference. a crowd likely in the know that for every dollar men make, women make 77 cents. he was answering a question about how women should ask for a raise. >> it's not really about asking for the raise but knowing and having faith that the system will give you the right raises as you go along. that might be one of the additional superpowers that quite frankly women who don't ask for a raise have because
that's good karma. it will come back. someone will know that's the person i want to trust. that's the kind of person i want to really give more responsibility to and in the long-term, things catch up. i wonder. i'm not saying that's the only approach. i wonder whether taking the long-term helps solve for what might be perceived as this uncomfortable thing of am i getting paid right? am i getting rewarded right because reality is your best work is not followed with your best reward. your best work then has impact, people recognize it, and then you get the rewards and so you have to somehow think that through i think. >> let me tell you a story about myself. this is one of the few things i disagree with you on. >> and joining me now, maria, we cut you off in that clip because
we want to ask you to tell your story with us. when you heard his answer, what went through your mind? >> well, it was about 45 minutes into a 50-minute interview. it had been an incredibly positive interview. the audience was just loving him. 8,000 people in the audience. they were cheering for things he said. there were cheering for things i said. it was this electric moment and then i asked him this question and he gives that answer. i'm going, like, why did you say that? i didn't say that. i very politely disagreed with him because even though i'm not always very polite, i try to be and i told my own story about how hard i find it to ask for raises and how at least a couple times in my life, i have not done my homework about what the appropriate salary would be well enough and i have not been
willing to sort of -- when i'm offered a particular salary say i think that's a little bit low given my level of experience and achievement and i think it would be much more appropriate to ask for something like a larger number. so i told that story. >> you told that to the crowd after his answer. what was the response? for you to come out and say you feel like you have missed out on money as well by not asking the right way perhaps. >> yes. i mean, i have to say, first of all, the crowd cheered. i think they were really glad -- they were happy about two things. one thing, i admitted that i'm seen as a successful woman and i've been successful in many respects but i like to be open about the fact that i fail. i make mistakes and i try to learn from them and that this was a mistake i had made not just once but twice and that i wanted to give them advice about i do a lot of coaching of women
about doing negotiations either for a raise or negotiations for a new position and so i gave them some of that advice. >> so let me focus here on part of what he said. he said a woman who doesn't ask for a raise is the kind of person that i want to trust. the kind of person that i want to really give more responsibility to. is sounds strange to some folks. is that true in the corporate world. people who don't ask for more money are trusted? >> i think the thing we have to keep in context here is that he's an unusual leader from a different background from most corporate ceos. he brings -- he would have given the same response to an auditorium hall filled with 8,000 men. it's part of his upbringing in south india. you shouldn't always ask for things for yourself and it is
part of how we raise our young women and you're supposed to serve others and do good and be helpful and you're not supposed to ask for things for yourself. and if the world were perfect, if this were utopia, such advice would be perfect lly fine but that's not how the corporate world works in our culture and it's true that people who ask for more whether more resources are responsibilities, promotion or salary increase, they tend to get more and so one of the things i feel very strongly about is we should be coaching women and other groups who are underrepresented in the tech industry to be willing to ask. >> it's a fascinating conversation and given rise to more discussion and conversation about this topic of equal pay. i appreciate your time here. thanks for coming on the show today. >> my pleasure.
thanks, randi. you may recognize the last name of our next guest. randy zuckerberg is familiar with corporate boardrooms and we'll ask if women should leave their careers up to karma as was suggested. that's next. teacher of the un-teachable. you lower handicaps... and raise hopes. and you...rent from national. because only national lets you choose any car in the aisle... and go. you can even take a full-size or above, and still pay the mid-size price. (pro) nice drive. (vo) well played, business pro. well played. go national. go like a pro. you want i fix this mess? a mess? i don't think -- what's that? snapshot from progressive. plug it in, and you can save on car insurance based on your good driving. you sell to me? no, it's free. you want to try? i try this if you try... not this.
okay. da! sea captain: there's a narratorstorm cominhe storm narrator: that whipped through the turbine which poured... surplus energy into the plant which generously lowered its price and tipped off the house which used all that energy to stay warm through the storm. chipmunk: there's a bad storm comin! narrator: the internet of everything is changing how energy works. is your network ready?"
microsoft ceo apologized not just on twitter for comments that women should have faith in the system to get a raise. he also sent a mea culpa through a memo to his 128,000 employees saying "i believe men and women should get equal pay for equal work and when it comes to career advice on getting a raise when you think it's deserved, maria's advice was the right advice. if you think you deserve a raise, you should just ask." joining me now, the founder and ceo of zuckerberg media, randy zuckerberg, also host of "dot
complicated." nice to have you on the program today. let me ask you your reaction when you heard comments about karma instead of asking for a raise? >> my first reaction was, wow, did he rely on karma to get the ceo position? i'm pretty sure no ceo ever just sat back and let the system take care of itself to get to that position. you know, i recently joined the public board of professional diversity network, a company that works with fortune 500 companies to increase the number of women and minorities they have in the workforce. an issue close to my heart. i really hope that he feels thoroughly embarrassed by these remarks now he uses the platform of microsoft for good to put his money where his mouth is and not just his foot in the mouth. >> you've worked in the tech
world. can women rely on karma or do they need something more? >> no, nobody can rely on karma in the workforce to get ahead. absolutely people need to speak up and be vocal and we need to take a look at some of the systemic measures in place right now that are keeping it such that women are only 30% of the workforce and they are earning 89% of what their male counterparts are earning and they're losing half a million dollars over the course of their career because they didn't negotiate out front or ask for raises along the way. we need to look at the hr practices in place and reexamine some of these old systems. >> so he said it was as simple as asking for it. when you go for a raise, is it that simple? >> it's not that simple. now, i work with a lot of women. i advise a lot of startups here.
i think the most crucial time that you have everything in your power is when you're negotiating your entry into a company. that's the point that women start to lose out to men and i think it's important to remember there are lots of different things you can negotiate for today. it's not just your base salary. you can negotiate for starting bonuses, performance bonuses, equity and stock and while you probably won't go in getting everything you want in all of those categories, there's no reason to just accept an initial offer without negotiating on at least one of those points. >> so why is it that you think women don't ask for raises enough of the time or don't ask for raises as often as men do? >> it's difficult when you're surrounded by men and when you're in a room and when you have folks with this bias like
the microsoft ceo had. it can be hard to be the person that speaks up. i talk to a lot of women that say i really want to speak up for myself but i have to pick my battles. this is not the hill i want to die on. and it's interesting that the news comes on the same news today as malala winning the nobel peace prize because he stood up and spoke and took action. ironic that we're having these conversations on the same day. i do think it's incredibly important for women to speak up and ask for raises. you have to go into the conversation with cold hard facts. you can't go in being emotional and saying i deserve a raise because i work hard because i deserve it. you have to show the value that -- >> what should you say? >> walk in with value you brought to the company. here were your expectations for me. here's how i over delivered.
here is how the company benefiteded from it and market stats for what someone in my position should be earning. make it about the data and not the emotions. >> that's a good point. a lot of women probably do go in making it about emotion because we're emotional beings, aren't we? >> i was watching "shark tank" and i saw two young women saying why should you invest in me and they were saying because we work hard. because we're good people. we deserve it. investor said that doesn't actually get you an investment for being a good person. what gets you an investment is showing data and numbers and business and i think that's an important thing for a lot of women to take into account when you walk into that room for your performance review, it's not an emotional decision. it's a business decision. so make it about why it's a good business decision for your company to keep you there. >> just very quickly, do you believe that we will close the gap in pay? >> i do believe we will. hopefully in a hundred years
from now we'll be laughing talking about that time that men played a role in computing. otherwise, if not, we can leave it up to karma. >> all right. karma is a good thing. all right. randi zuckerberg, thank you so much. nice to speak with you. >> nice to speak with you too. thanks. coming next, it may be the one feel good story of the nfl this season. first, the team and then a league rallies in support of a cincinnati bengals player whose daughter is fighting for her life. rachel nichols joins us with her interview with devon still. an injectable insulin that can give you blood sugar control for up to 24 hours. and levemir® helps lower your a1c. levemir® is now available in flextouch® - the only prefilled insulin pen with no push-button extension. levemir® lasts 42 days without refrigeration.

i have a lifetime of experience. so i know how important that is. one of the leading candidates for the heisman trophy has been dealt what could be a crippling blow to his college football career. the university of georgia has indefinitely suspended its star player todd gurley. he was allegedly paid $400 for signing memorabilia on campus earlier this year. head coach mark richt said i'm obviously very disappointed. the important thing for our team is to turn all our attention toward preparation for missouri. the host of "unguarded" rachel nichols join us. this is a big deal. >> it is to the ncaa. although the word when people use when discussing these rules and the ncaa is hypocrisy.
georgia can make money off his jersey. they're selling todd gurley's jersey on their website right now. so they can make money off his likeness, his name, but it's against ncaa for todd gurley to make any likeness off himself. what he did is clearly against the rules. >> he knew it. >> he knew it. we can't say, gosh, he was screwed by the man or anything like that. he knew the rules were there and he broke them. but the reason we see more and more athletes breaking these rules is the unfairness of it all has just boiled to the surface. and the feeling across sports at this point is these rules have to change because there's no balance here. >> especially when you look at the other star players, including the current heisman trophy winner, jeanne moos, who's been accused of worse things, like sexual assault. he didn't even get the same kind
of punishment. >> and when jameis winston was inspected -- todd gurley has been asked to sit down. >> is gurley finished, do you think, as a heisman hopeful? >> the word is suspended indefinitely. initially the thought was maybe two or three games. reports have surfaced that he could be done for the entire season. this is a huge blow not just to georgia but certainly the s.e.c., the most popular conference in all of college football. and frankly, this was the guy this year. this was the most electrifying player we saw on the field in the sport. so the fact that he is going to be pulled off for a while and maybe he's done is a big blow to college football fans across the country. >> let's end on an up note. we saw this touching struggle
faced by the bengals' defensive tackle devin still whose little daughter is gravely ill. what can you tell us about that? >> if you were one of the 20 million people who tuned in to sunday night football last week, the number one rated show on television, you probably saw the moment that football stopped mattering. they stopped the whole game and put up devin still's little girl, leah. she's 4 years old. she has pediatric cancer. this game was in new england. the patriots stopped the game. they had their cheerleaders put on number 75, devin still, jerseys and do a tribute to leah all those jerseys when they are sold, they are donating the proceeds to pediatric cancer. so his jersey has become the number one bengals selling jersey. we caught up with devin on "unguarded." take a listen. leah's tumor was in her abdomen. you posted this great video of you giving her a little pep talk
on the way to the hospital. how is she doing right now? >> she's doing pretty well. she starts her last round of chemo this friday. they gave her an extra week to get rehydrated and gain her weight back so the chemo doesn't have a big effect on her this time. >> things are looking up, but i can't imagine when you first heard the news from doctors about her cancer. they only give her a 50-50 chance to survive. what was the hardest moment for you? you had to explain all this to her, just go through it as a parent? >> the hardest moment for me was listening to the doctor tell me i only had half a chance of having my daughter in my life. that was hard on me and hard on her mother as well and the rest of our family. as a parent, you never want to hear that your child only has a 50% chance of living. you want to always hear that they have a 100% chance. >> so many negative stories
about the nfl the past few months. we've seen all this bad stuff, the cincinnati bengals actually cut still this summer for football reasons. but because of this situation with his daughter, they actually re-signed him to the practice squad just so he could keep his health insurance. how great is that? there are still good stories in football. >> i love his little fist bump. so sweet. rachel, thank you. be sure to watch "unguarded" tonight, 10:30 eastern time right here on cnn. you don't want to miss that. i'm randi kaye. thanks for watching today. enjoy your friday.
