tv Early Start With John Berman and Christine Romans CNN November 9, 2015 2:00am-3:01am PST
>> the doctor is in and ticked off. ben carson taking on the media for focusing too much on his past. hear why the coverage of his campaign is quote stupid. new questions at a popular egyptian airport. was security lax before the plane went down? hear what officials have to say as major review procedures get under way. anger and sorrow in louisiana. a community preparing to bury a 6-year-old boy shot and killed by two marshals. demand for answers why a police chase for the boy's father ended with this boy's death. good morning. welcome to "early start." i'm john berman. >> i'm alison kosik. it is 5:00 a.m. in the east. this morning, there is new criticism of the media from ben carson. pushing back against reporting that scrutinizes stories he told
about his youth. a key part of his personal narrative says he was violent as a youngster until he turned to god which transformed his life. campaigning in puerto rico, carson offered a point by point rebuttal over the reporting by political and wall street journal. cnn could not corroborate his stories, including punching a classmate with his hand wrapped around a lock. and donald trump had a different weekend hosting "saturday night live." i'm amused by his dancing. sunday morning he was right back into the swing of things. needling marco rubio over the republican party charge card years ago. zach wolf is the managing edit or. i want to bring in ben carson
who has been anything but sleepy. very upset of media coverage of his past. including the cnn report which looked to corroborate many of carson's stories of how he was violent as a youngster and ultimately turned to god. one story of wrapping his hand around a lock. cnn could not find anyone to corroborate that story. listen to what he said. >> the investigations talking to the wrong people and not going to wilson junior high school where the lock incident occurred. this is stupid. i mean, if the media is no better than investigating that, it's sick. the burden of proof is not going to be on me to corroborate everything i ever talked about in my life. once i start down that road, every single day from now until the election, you will be spending your time doing that and we have much more important
things. >> so reporters say this is vetting. the carson campaign say this is a witch hunt. he has raked in several million dollars cause the media has been so hard on him, zach. >> that's right. it is really a part of, i think, for him, his political brand is part of this from now on. will be opposing the media and bringing them in as a boogie man. whereas the media is looking at this as they are doing, they think, what they would do to any other presidential candidate. looking at the major claims in his book. this whole conversion story. his religious epiphany is based on him being a violent young man and turning not violent through god. you have the two sides here. i don't know what will happen next until the carson campaign comes up with someone to say these did or did not happen. >> now you have donald trump
having a much better weekend. what can be better than appearing on "saturday night live?" i want to go to a clip i remember from that night that shows trump sitting around his supposed cabinet and everything going perfectly. let's go to the clip. >> the president of mexico is here to see you. >> that's great. send him in. >> donald. >> enrique. >> i brought you the check for the wall. >> that's wonderful. >> consider it an apology for doubting you. as history shows us, nothing brings two countries together like a wall. >> there were some really funny parts. why is it it is not getting rave reviews? >> everything with donald trump, you think the presidential frontrunner spending his time not out there in new hampshire and iowa talking to voters, but dancing on "saturday night live." it is unconventional with a
capital "u." it is the strangest thing. people go on the shows at the end of the campaign and be there for one skit. trump is there the whole show. he is owning it. in a very media way, not a political way. it's the strangeness of the cycle. >> let's talk about tomorrow night, zach. another republican debate tomorrow night. fewer candidates on stage, minus chris christie and minus mike huckabee. what are you looking for tomorrow? >> you are looking for the new sort of stage without those chris christie and mike huckabees. the two interesting debaters. now we will have a smaller stage. still donald trump and ben carson. you will look for them banding together against the media. you will look for what is trump going to do next and how will carson defend himself? >> this is one we will watch although not on our network.
>> we will watch, but not help with the ratings. >> thanks, zach. we will see you in a bit. new this morning, a russian security audit under way in the resort of sharm el sheikh. the u.s. is increasingly confident it was a bomb that brought down a russian jetliner that took off from sharm el sheikh killing all 224 people on board. with one u.s. official telling cnn it is quote 99.9% sure that it was a bomb. egypt is walking a fine line. firmly denying media reports of lax security at airport, but inviting russian experts to provide security checks and make suggestions for improvement. joining us from sharm el sheikh is ian lee. ian, good morning. u.s. investigators are getting involved? >> reporter: good morning, john and alison. the fine may come here to help
out with the investigation. the formal request hasn't been made, but one area they could help the egyptians in is analyzing a sound heard on the final moments of the voice recorder. a loud bang is heard. now u.s., u.k. officials believe this is the sound of a bomb exploding. egyptians on the other hand are saying it could be an engine exploding or battery. it could be a bomb. they just don't know and they want this investigation to continue. they are also analyzing the debris still out there where the plane crashed looking for signs of an explosions. so far we have not heard if they found any residue. a lot of scrutiny at the airport. the sharm el sheikh airport behind me. we have seen planes taking off all day. we have seen the russian security team on the ground assessing the security and making sure it is up to standards and if a bomb
happened, they are making sure no other bombs could happen. they are around other egyptian airports. they have roughly 80,000 people in the country. tourists they want to get back safely. really the question of airport security is not whether the egyptians feel that is up to standards, but the countries that fly their planes in here is good enough. >> ian, how is the relationship with egypt and russia effected knowing russia feels one way over how the plane went down and how egyptian stands firmly with what it believes. >> reporter: egypt and russia have close relations. especially with egyptian president sisi and the russian president vladimir putin. they visited each other on a number of times. they were in sync at the initial part of the investigation. it wasn't until after the u.s. shared the intelligence with the russians that they stopped all
flights in and out of egypt. they are assessing the security here. that being said. it is unlikely to fray the relationship between the two countries as it is fairly close. >> cnn's ian lee, thank you. happening today, a 6-year-old boy will be laid to rest and two law enforcement officers will be charged with killing him. they will appear in court. first grader jeremy mardis was shot and killed after the police chase in louisiana. jeremy's father, chris few, has been injured in the pursuit. the officers were arrested if part on the body camera video. >> jeremy mardis, 6 years old, he did not deserve to die like that. we took the body camera footage. i will not talk about it, but i will tell you this. this is the most disturbing thing i have seen. >> police have not disclosed a motive for the shooting. for the latest, let's go to
cnn's nick valencia in marksville, louisiana. >> reporter: at least one officer involved and charged in the murder of jeremy mardis has a troubled history. back in 2011, 32-year-old derrek stafford indicted on two counts of assault. one dating back to 2004 and another occurring while employed by the marksville police department. we have reached out to the marksville police department and family members of the stafford. they have not gotten back to cnn. in the research on both history of the officers, we could not find any instance in which either was convicted of a crime. in the community of 5,000, the focus is largely on 6-year-old jeremy mardis. i spoke with his first grade special needs teacher where he was shot and killed. >> we brought this cute bear and puppy dog and our wreath from the autism network. when a child in our community
needs something, we're there for him. >> you guys are there for him. what goes through your heart and mind when you look at this? >> i just know he is watching over everybody. he always was an angel. >> reporter: the funeral for the 6-year-old will be held later this afternoon in hattiesburg, mississippi. the two marshals are in custody in the jail behind me and expected also to have the first court appearance on monday. john and alison. nick, thanks for that. time for an early start on your money. asia markets mixed overnight. shanghai and nikkei is up 2%. the dow is down slightly in pre-market trading. on the heels of a strong jobs report. a top official suggesting interest rates may go up for the first time in several years. john williams, the president of the federal reserve bank of san francisco says the next step should be to begin raising
interest rates. the central bank expected to take up the issue at the december meeting. maybe. >> unless it is not. but probably maybe. all sides hoping for a thaw today when president obama hosts israeli prime minister mebenjam netanyahu. can the tensions in this relationship be eased at all as there is a new wave of violence in the area? we will have that next. this holiday season, get ready for mystery. what's in the trunk?
nothing. romance. 18 inch alloys. you remembered. family fun. everybody squeeze in. don't block anyone. and non-stop action. noooooooo! it's the event you don't want to miss. it's the season of audi sales event. get up to a $2,500 bonus for highly qualified lessees on select audi models. same eyes. same laugh. and since she's had moderate alzheimer's disease, i've discovered we have the same fighting spirit, too. that's why i asked her doctor about new once-a-day namzaric™. vo: new namzaric is approved for moderate to severe alzheimer's disease in patients who are currently taking, and can continue to take certain doses of both namenda and donepezil. new namzaric is the first and only treatment to combine 2 proven alzheimer's medicines into a single once-a-day capsule that works 2 ways to fight the symptoms of moderate to severe alzheimer's disease. once-a-day namzaric may improve cognition and overall function
and may slow the worsening of symptoms for a while. namzaric does not change how the disease progresses. it shouldn't be taken by anyone allergic to memantine, donepezil, piperidine or any of the ingredients in namzaric. before starting treatment, tell the doctor about any medical conditions they have... including heart or lung problems, seizures, stomach ulcers, bladder, kidney, or liver problems. tell the doctor if the patient will have any procedures involving anesthesia, which may cause muscle problems. other serious side effects may occur, including slow heartbeat and fainting; increased stomach acid, which may raise the chance of ulcers and bleeding; nausea and vomiting; difficulty passing urine, seizures, and worsening of lung problems. the most common side effects associated with namzaric are headache, diarrhea, dizziness, loss of appetite, and bruising. woman: mom and i share a lot of moments. and we're making the most of each one. vo: ask your doctor if new namzaric is right for your loved one. at ally bank no branches equals great rates. it's a fact. kind of like ordering wine
equals pretending to know wine. pinot noir, which means peanut of the night. israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu and president obama's relationship in a word is chilly. this morning, the two men meet at the white house for a fence mending mission for benjamin netanyahu following his speech to congress where he lobbied against the iran nuclear deal. the israeli leader seeking more military aid from the u.s. this coming amid a new wave of violence with more terror attacks against jews in israel and the west bank.
cnn's oren liebermann is in jerusalem. >> reporter: there is no more fighting and arguing about the iran nuclear deal. now the question is the aftermath of that deal. that is what prime minister netanyahu will focus on specifically the u.s. military aid package to israel in the wake of the deal. it is about $3 billion a year now. it is a ten-year deal. it runs until 2018. netanyahu and president obama know it will not be signed today, but netanyahu will begin to push for an increase in the aid. he may ask for $4 billion or $5 billion. the decision will not be made today, but this is the beginning of the lobbying process. as this happens, the other big item on the agenda for the leaders is the israeli/palestinian conflict. another alleged attack in the west bank this morning. the one getting a lot of attention was in the southern
west bank. ultra orthodox settlement. this is disturbing video. i want to warn you, a palestinian woman approached a security guard outside of the settlement. as the security guard is checking the identification, she pulls a knife and attempts so stab the guard. the guard pulled out a gun and shot the attacker. that is the atmosphere in which this conversation is happening. those will be the two big items on the agenda. again, chilly relationship. not expecting any big announcements, but very big items during this meeting. alison. >> we will be following what comes from the meeting today. oren, thanks for your report. photos now emerging showing the damage that greg hardy inflicted on his then girlfriend in an altercation. now hardy is responding defending himself in the face of the brutal images.

cowboys greg hardy still on the roster and on the field last night. this after the shocking photos alleging a domestic violence incident against his then girlfriend. >> we have coy wire with the bleacher report. >> the photos were released on friday. on saturday, hardy was on twitter quote just had to say i
express my regret for what happened in the past. i'm dedicated for being the best person and teammate. he follows that with mostly i'm grateful for the opportunity to play in the nfl. here are the pictures of the past hardy is talking about. they are disturbing. the pictures show then girlfriend nicole holder in 2014 battered and bruised with marks on her body and back. these pictures raised more questions over whether or not cowboys should have signed hardy and if they should continue to employ him. jerry jones has stood by his man. in the nfl, if you can play, you can stay. hardy is on the team and suited up last night. the primetime game was an overtime game. sam bradford finds the end zone for the game winning score. that gives the cowboys the sixth straight loss. as for the losing streak, eagles win 23-7.
the coach jason garrett talked about his team's reason to continue to play greg hardy. listen. >> we take the issue very seriously. we knew when we signed hardy, there would be criticism. we decided to give him a second chance. he worked hard for our football team. he knows the expectations and standards. moving on. 30 members of the missouri football team joining the call for the resignation of president tim wolfe. they sent out a tweet, we will not participate in the football related activities until tim wolfe resigns over his experiences. we are united. head coach followed up with his tweet yesterday morning after the team meeting with the picture of the team saying, the
football family is united and behind the players. it is not just the coach, but the athletic department supports student athletes. the board of curators will hold an executive board meeting today. >> it will be interesting to see the results of the meeting. no love lost between ben carson and the reporters. he is now trying to pivot to the issues. will it work? the latest on the 2016 race next. is holiday i can with orders.unt on bed we're getting slammed with orders. and my customers knowing right when their packages arrive. totally slammed! introducing real-time delivery notifications. one more reason this is our season. (vo) wit runs on optimism.un on? it's what sparks ideas. moves the world forward. invest with those who see the world as unstoppable.
a community in mourning. a 6-year-old buried today after being shot and killed by two marshals. welcome back to "early start." i'm alison kosik. >> i'm john berman. 30 minutes past the hour. this morning, new criticism of the media from ben carson. pushing back of the reporting of his past as a young man. the key part of his narrative is he was violent when he was younger until he found god which transformed his life. campaigning in puerto rico, he offered a rebuttal by the wall street journal and politico and cnn. cnn could not corroborate several of carson's stories, including a story of punching a classmate in the face with his
hand wrapped around a lock. and donald trump had a different week hosting "saturday night live." he was taking swings at his opponents on sunday morning. let's bring in zach wolf. let's start with ben carson. the kind of weekend he had. you know, it feels like things are melting down for him and it shows in what he said. listen to this. >> the kind of investigations wrong people and not going to - wilson junior high school where the lock incident occurred. this is stupid. and if our media is no better than that, it's sick. the burden of proof is not going to be on me to corroborate everything that i ever talked about in my life. once i start down that road, every single day from now until
the election, you will be spending your time doing that and we have much more important things to do. >> questions about his honesty front and center. what do you think? how does he come back from this? how does he appear stronger? >> he says the burden of proof is not on him to prove everything about his life. his book that he wrote is now going to become reporters poring every word of that. these tend to feed upon themselves after cnn's report and the wall street journal. the entire book will be under scrutiny. what he needs to do is change the narrative in some way. it is not clear that they will do that. cnn and others have asked them for witnesses to some of the events where he describes his violence. the campaign has not come forward with them. short of something happening, it
is hard to see this narrative changing. >> he has done so over the last three days saying this is a witch hunt and unprecedented number of dollars fund raising off this the last few days. on the other hand, donald trump is out there. he is now asking questions about ben carson. perhaps some other opponents, too. donald trump is making a habit of asking leading questions about the guys he is running against. listen to what he said about marco rubio and marco rubio's use of charge cards when he was in florida and work for the state. >> i hope he issues his credit cards and it turns out to be good for him, not bad for him. i would like to see him not hurt himself on such a matter that should be very easy to understand and very simple to understand. we will see what happens if he gave the information, it will be easy to see whether or not
anything was done wrong. frankly, i hope nothing was done that was wrong because that would be really terrible to be disqualified for that. >> i hope nothing was done that was wrong. it would be really terrible to be disqualified for that. full concern of trump fanning the flames for rubio. >> he has done the same with every candidate. he has been critical of jeb bush. critical of perry before he got out. every candidate. trump goes from candidate to candidate with the scrutiny. rubio is the guy coming up after the most recent republican debate. he had a strong performance. people are paying attention to him. he has come up in polls. nowhere near carson and trump as a frontrunner. he is the next guy on the trump list. >> we have a debate on fox news tomorrow night. zach wolf, thank you. new this morning, a russian security audit is under way in
the town of sharm el sheikh. the u.s. is increasingly confident that it was a bomb that took down the jetliner killing all 224 people on board. one official telling cnn it is 99.9% sure it was a bomb. egypt is denying the lax security at the airport, but is inviting russia to make suggestions for improvements. joining us live from sharm el sheikh is cnn's ian lee. good morning, ian. >> reporter: good morning, john and alison. now we are hearing the fbi could get involved in this investigation. one u.s. official telling cnn that the fbi could help figure out what caused a loud bang which took place right before the plane crashed on this data voice recorder. egyptian officials said this
bang could be a number of things. from an explosion to an engine exploding or battery going off. u.s. and u.k. officials shows this is more evidence that this was a bomb put on this plane. behind me at sharm el sheikh, security is incredibly tight. we have that russian team on the ground. they will be going over the procedures. we have seen some planes coming in and taking off and passengers are going to be leaving without their luggage. they have strict restrictions on passengers leaving from the airport. they can only take small carry-on bags. the luggage is taken away in a transport plane. russian officials are at other egyptian airports assessing security. it is not up to the egyptians really to say that security is good enough. it is up to the airlines and countries of origin to determine if it is safe to fly in and out
of sharm el sheikh. >> interesting if tourists continue to head to the region. time for an early start on your money. shanghai markets are higher. dow futures are down slightly. a judge in california ruling apple employees don't have to be paid for the time they spend as they have their bags searched at the end of the shifts. the class action suit on behalf of 12,000 employees in california argued the time spent on the screenings added up to $1,500 a year in lost pay. a federal judge says anti-theft screenings are not part of the employees job responsibilities and they can avoid the searches by not bringing a bag to work. that is not realistic. i bring a lot of junk to work. >> lunch and charge cords. you have all this stuff. gym equipment. >> i see them spending more time
in line. black football players at university of missouri taking a stand off the field. promising not to play until the school president resigns over issues and charges of racism on campus. we will tell you what the school is now saying next. isn't it beautiful when things just come together? build a beautiful website with squarespace. every insurance policy has a number.

appear in court. first grader jeremy mardis was shot and killed after a police chase in louisiana. jeremy's father, chris few, was injured when officers opened fire. the two officers arrested based in part on body camera video. >> jeremy mardis, 6 years old. he did not deserve to die like that. we took the body camera footage. i will not talk about it, but i will tell you this this is the most disturbing thing i have seen. >> police have not disclosed the motive for the shooting. let's turn to cnn's nick valencia in marksville, louisiana. >> reporter: john and alison, one officers involved and charged in the murder of jeremy mardis has a troubled history. in 2011, 32-year-old derrick stafford was indicted on two counts of assault. one dating back to 2004. another occurring while he was
still employed by the marksville police department. we have reached out to the police department and family members of stafford. in our research, we could not find any instance where either was convicted of a crime. in the community of 5,000, the focus is on 6-year-old jeremy mardis. earlier, i spoke with his first grade special needs teacher at the site where he was shot and killed. >> we brought this cute bear and puppy dog and the wreath from the autism network. >> what goes through your heart and mind when you look at this? >> i just know he is watching over everybody. he was always an angel. >> reporter: the funeral for the 6-year-old will be held this afternoon in mississippi. meanwhile, the marshals are in
custody behind me in the jail and they are expected also to have their first court appearance on monday. john and alison. thank you, nick. the governing board of university of missouri will hold a public meeting in the face of the racial tension on campus. dozens of football players will not play until the president tim wolfe will step down. they are upset over how the alleged racism is being handled on campus. polo sandoval has more. >> reporter: several statements were released, one reading, quote, it is clear to all of us that change is needed. we appreciate the thoughtfulness which has gone through sharing the concern. jonathan butler who met wolfe twice. he launched a hunger strike on
november 2nd. >> my body is literally shutting down. with each passing moment and each passing day, it gets worse. that's not what i like to focus on. i like to focus on what you do see nationally and what you see across other campuses and my campus. students are finding their voices and fighting back. they are standing up for what they believe in. >> reporter: members of the football team joining the cause over the weekend boycotts games and practices until wolfe steps down. the head coach tweeted this photo saying the mizzou unites as one. we are behind our players. this is evidence that this is more than just a student movement here. it is not every day we see the head of the university system acknowledge publicly that there is a serious problem with racism on their campus. activists say at this point, the comments coming from the president is still not enough.
they want to see him gone. mizzou tigers are still scheduled for a game on november 14th. it is unclear if they will hit the field. john and alison. thank you, polo. let's see what is coming up on "new day." michaela. >> they are holding an emergency meeting at university of missouri. we will tell you more coming up. and ben carson stepping up attacks on the media and cnn for digging into claims he made about his past. why does dr. carson feel he is treated unfairly? we will speak with his business manager and friend about that. we will hear from another gop candidate. this morning, chris christie. we will have more on the story of two louisiana officers accused of killing a 6-year-old boy. could this shooting have been avoided? we will talk about the case and talk about what we learned about the officers with the superintendent of louisiana state police coming up live on
"new day." >> thanks, michaela. a big take in the box office for james bond. how much on the franchise is bringing in over the weekend? an "early start" on your money next. at ally bank no branches equals great rates. it's a fact. kind of like shopping hungry equals overshopping. more "sit" per roll. more "stay" per roll. more "who's training who" per roll. bounty is two times more absorbent. so one roll of bounty can last longer than those bargain brands. so you get more "life" per roll. bounty. the long-lasting quicker picker upper. the more gaps you may find.ur insurance,

turn to lobby to increase that to perhaps $4 billion a year to $5 billion a year. now hanging over this, of course, the other big issue on the agenda is the conflict amid a number of attacks. one more alleged attack this morning in the northern west bank with one getting the attention especially right now which happened yesterday in an ultra orthodox settlement south of jerusalem. i have to warn you this video is disturbing. a palestinian woman approaching a security guard outside the settlement. the security guard is checking her identification and the video shows the woman pull out a knife and attempting stab the security guard. the security guard pulled a gun and shot the attacker and sent her to the hospital. the other big issue is will leaders come up with anything to ease the tensions here and what will they say about the military
aid package. those are the questions we will wait and see if we get answers. john. >> this is a meeting with a statement at the beginning, but no q & a. a deadly accident in the washington, d.c. suburb. four people killed and 14 others injured when a van caught fire after colliding with a pickup truck in maryland. police say a child was among the fatali fatalities. >> i stayed with one of the girls and held her hand. her leg may have been broken. she was trying. we tried to keep her awake. >> she had a burn on her face. >> what did you do? >> i started saying john 3:16 to her. that calmed her down. >> of the 14 people hurt, eight in critical condition, including four children. a high school sexting scandal rocking a colorado town. students at canyon high school

last of it. i'm sure it will occupy many hours of cable between now and december 25th. ben carson on the attacks this morning, not against other candidates, but us. the media. he calls the coverage of him stupid. why? "new day" picks up the story now. >> ben carson taking on the media for focusing too much on his past. >> the burden of proof is not going to be on me. >> he has pathological disease. it is a serious statement. >> there is no question i'm under scrutiny. there are a lot of people that are threatened. >> one of us is a candidate of the establishment. the other candidate is prepared to take on the establishment. i'm not voting for hillary clinton. i'm supporting bernie sanders. jeremy mardis, he did not deserve to die like that. >> 6-year-old boy shot and killed by who marshals.
