3:00 am
>> two minutes before the hour as we look at the good, the bad, and the ugly. first the good.
3:01 am
coney island's luna park is reopened five months after its rides were damaged during superstorm sandy. all rides have been replaced. next the bad. a boulder the size of a golf cart crashes into two cars in hawaii. neighbors say they woke up when they heard it rumbling down the hill before it hit. the ugly. a bizarre road rage encounter caught on camera. a man so angry he ripped the other driver's rear view mirror off his car and he eventually gets even and does the same thing to the other guy. >> time for your brew on the question of the day responses. we told you about c.v.s. apologizing for last week's amazing race episode featuring a b-52 bomber as a prop. we asked if you think cbs's apology was enough. dave writes the apology issued by cbs had disdain
3:02 am
hidden behind that krourdly blue screen. >> john tweeted cbs did the right thing.apology good enough. we got a lot of comments on that one. "fox & friends" starts now. everybody have a great day. >> i'll see you at 9 a.m. gretchen:good morning. today is monday, march 25, 2013. it is not an election year but political ads are already back. that is due to new york's mayor michael bloomberg. >> i think i have a responsibility and i think you and all of your viewers have responsibilities to try to make this country safer for our families and for each other. >>gretchen: mayor bloomberg now taking his latest crackdown to the rest of the country. we'll tell but that.
3:03 am
>>steve: after a week of outrage, cbs apologizing for slapping our veterans in the face of one of their most popular shows. too little too late. we're going to report. you are going to decide on the not so amazing race. >>brian: one lucky trucker hits the $338 million powerball jackpot. the other big winner is uncle sam. wait till you hear how much the $338 million jackpot breaks down after they pay taxes. "fox & friends" starts now. >>steve: welcome back to the studio. look who's back after a long vacation. >>gretchen: i knew that rooster called this morning. >>brian: is that how you got up? >>gretchen: i didn't sleep that much. i'm on a three-hour time delay. but glad to be back. nice to come back to a snowstorm on the east coast. >>brian: did you get my promo this morning?
3:04 am
>>gretchen: i saw your lips moving and if i was reading lips correctly, i thought i heard you say? >>brian: gretchen carlson will debut her entire vacation picture by picture day by day. >>gretchen: i believe 7:30 eastern time i brought one picture. i needed marlon perkins on vacation. that's the clue. >>steve: he's unavailable. >>gretchen: i was pulling a brian for a moment. he always refers he needs marlon perkins and then we have to tell him he's no longer with us. it has to do with an animal that was very dangerous. stay tuned. great to be back. in the meantime let's get to your headlines. a last-minute deal to bail out cyprus. in exchange it has to cut back its oversized banking sector including shutting the second largest banks. it had to find ways to raise $7.5 billion on its
3:05 am
own. the measures will keep the island from collapsing but will likely deepen the recession there. >> a hearing is underway in italy to decide whether amanda knox will have to go on trial again for the murder of her roommate. prosecutors want her conviction reinstated. the american college student was cleared of charges she killed her british roommate. she spent four years? an italian prison. state prisons in colorado on lockdown this morning tightening security measures after the murder of a corrections director tom clements. he was shot dead in cold blood at his front door last week. a paroled inmate was a member of a white supremacist prison gang and there is concern the gang could retaliate now for his death. he was killed in a shootout in texas last week. a vial containing a potentially deadly virus disappeared from the galveston national laboratory in texas. the virus being studied because it could be used as a weapon by terrorists.
3:06 am
it caused deadly outbreaks in venezuela. however officials don't believe it is a threat to the public. they don't think the vile vile -- vial was stolen but may have been broken. >>steve: you wash -- watch cbs's amazing race? they have contestants go to hanoi, vietnam and memorize a song and look for clues in the wreckage of a b-52. >>brian: an american b-52 that crashed and left there as a memorial and a salute to ho chi minh. while that happened, that was cited by the five -- greg gutfeld dug the story out. bob beckel heard about it. he protested the vietnam war, was not for the war but when he saw the way the war was treated by the people of vietnam and the
3:07 am
american contestants, here's what he said. >> i'll tell you one thing, cbs, a great network, you don't want to become known as the communist bass tarred sympathizers. >>gretchen: he demanded apology from cbs. last night if you were watching the amazing race, they did start off the show with an apology. >> we want to apologize to veterans, particularly those who served in vietnam, as well as to their families and any viewers who were offended by the broadcast. all of us here have the most profound respect for the men and women who fight for our country. >>steve: good for bob beckel. he did push it on "the five." here on fox news channeling the v.f.w. and other veterans groups called for cbs to do something about it, to apologize. they didn't hear from them, didn't hear from the producer until that slate showed up on "the amazing
3:08 am
race" last night. >>brian: congratulations. >>gretchen: it sounds like it was the host announcing. obviously they taped this forever ago. so they got him on the phone, at least got his voice on there. >>brian: the heart's not really in the apology. >>steve: cbs apologized for amazing race. now when are they going to apologize for c.s.i. topeka. >>brian: bob beckel 8:30 live on the couch. >>gretchen: check your calendar. not an election year. not the mid terms quite yet but political ads are already coming back and now mayor michael bloomberg here in new york city is responsible for those. he is going to spend -- is this his own money? he's going to spend $12 million. he made a whole bunch of money so he's entitled to this. he wants to target 12
3:09 am
states where senators are on the hook for gun control and whether or not they are going to vote for universal background checks. he is going to run those ads in those 12 states and yesterday he gave this reason as to why he's going to do that and wayne la pierre responded. >> i think i have a responsibility and i think you and all of your viewers have responsibilities to try to make this country safer for our families and for each other. and if i can do that by spending some money and taking the n.r.a. from being the only voice to being one of the voices so the public can really understand the issues, i think my money would be well spent and i think i have an obligation to do that. they don't want them in their restaurants, their homes. they don't want them telling them what food to eat. they sure don't want them telling them what self-defense firearms to own and he can't buy america. >>steve: mr. la pierre says criminals aren't going to be checked, aren't going
3:10 am
to do this. what he says against the mayor and all other mayors against illegal guns with this campaign, it's not going to work because the bad guys with the guns aren't following the law. >>brian: he says the money should be poured into school security so they won't have soft targets. with adam lanza, they said he taught about this attack for two years and picked that school because he knew it was an easy target. >>steve: in addition to the $12 million worth of bloomberg's money, on wednesday they will have 100 events across the united states. it will be national day to encourage action. >> there is one lucky truck driver who at 10:00 a.m. eastern time will be cashing in on his winning powerball ticket. it is sold in new jersey. they are going to be revealed today. look what is going to happen when he takes his
3:11 am
check in borden town. >>steve: altogether the powerball ticket is worth $338 million. but when you figure out your tax bite, 46.1%. about half goes to federal and new jersey state taxes if he does take it in the lump sum, he will take home $221 million. >>brian: how do you live on that? >>steve: how do you? unfortunately, for the tax bite, it is $11 million more than it would have been last year because of that increase in taxes on people who have a lot of dough. >>gretchen: remember in the good old days when they started these lotteries and all those tax dollars were supposed to go to improve education in america? how did that work out? schools are broke. i don't get it. i thought the lottery was supposed to be the savior for our school systems 20-something years ago when this started but it still hasn't helped the school system apparently as far as
3:12 am
needing money. >>steve: politicians changed the rules. it started out we're going to do this. instead they said we're going to take a little of that money and put it over here, then put it over there. next thing you know it's everywhere. >>brian: the cabin door is closed. power up your electronic devices. friendly skies are about to get nicer. >>steve: the health benefits of beer? turns out facial hair can be a real lifesaver. how can you get back pain relief that lasts up to 16 hours? with thermacare heatwraps. thermacare works differently. it's the only wrap with patented heat cells that penetrate deep to relax, soothe, and unlock tight muscles. for up to 16 hours of relief, try thermacare. by the armful? by the barrelful? e carful?
3:13 am
how the bowlful? campbell's soups give you nutrition, energy, and can help you keep a healthy weight. campbell's. it's amazing what soup can do.
3:14 am
campbell's. i'my body doesn't work the way it used to. past mprime? i'm a victim of a slowing metabolism?
3:15 am
i don't think so. new great grains protein blend. protein from natural ingredients like seeds and nuts. it helps support a healthy metabolism. new great grains protein blend. >>brian: secretary of state john kerry making a surprise visit this weekend to baghdad. it's been a little more than a year since president obama ended war in iraq bringing the u.s. troops home. with little influence left in that war-torn country
3:16 am
trying to rebuild the secretary is having trouble urging iraq's leaders to stop aiding iran and allowing the overflights of iran, what we believe to be weapons, ammunitions over to syria. the iranians are using iraqi airspace to make that happen. john kerry wants it to stop. how did he do? joining me now a man who fought in that war, c.e.o. of concerned veterans for america, pete hegseth. how much leverage does the skraeufrt have? >> not very much. you might say that this is our chickens coming home to roost. when you don't follow through and don't have influence and don't have a relationship then the prime minister of iraq is more likely to hedge towards iran and his neighbors to the east than he is to help us because we don't have that influence. the folks we have left in baghdad don't have a mandate to operate. john kerry shows up asking for a favor and he can't get one.
3:17 am
>>brian: he can't get one because they don't need us right now. but they need to be friendly with iran at this point. malaki's focus is not having a regime in syria. our focus is not allowing assad to continue to exist. >> that's right. the shia regime doesn't want to see a sunni regime in syria. iran wants to maintain assad's power and iran is shipping weapons through iraq to syria. many people say it's those weapons and a lot of the training coming from iran that is propping up the aassad regime in syria. if we can cut that off, we might be able to cut off the weapons propping up in the assad regime. we can't get those flights to land, be inspected. if jordan has intelligence there's weapons on those flights we can't cut it off. it is a damned shame because we spent all that time, blood in iraq, we
3:18 am
should have that type of relationship where we can stop that. instead we can't. >>brian: secretary of state condoleezza told us here that status agreement was written to be renegotiation before it was up. if that was renegotiated successfully we would have had presence in the region and you could argue there would not be the intertribal strife they're witnessing right now. therefore, we would have the leverage. pete, do you think al-malaki ran for president saying iraq was the wrong war and do you think that's working against him now? >> they've got a long memory but if hillary colin con couldn't negotiate this -- if hillary clinton couldn't negotiate this, i don't think john kerry will be able to deliver anything differently. that status of force agreement was critical.
3:19 am
i think we should remember this when we are dabbling in whether or not to have a long-term presence and influence in afghanistan, the problem is iraq is that much more important. it is strategically more significant and we let it slip away. >>brian: after all that hard work and sacrifice. thanks so much. 17 after the hour. thanks for joining us this morning. remember those shovel-ready projects? why are we now paying for a gas tax? fox business's charles payne is here telling us where that money is going. >> it was the ad no one was supposed to see. supposed to see. now ford is under fire. what's droid-recognition ?
3:20 am

3:21 am
understanding you clearly... what is the capital of zimbabwe ? ... the first time you ask with the google voice search. the droid razr maxx hd by motorola. droid recognition. droid powerful.
3:22 am
3:23 am
>>brian: glad you're up. straight ahead, people lining up outside the supreme court for hearings tomorrow. they will hear two same-sex marriage cases, both laws aim to block same-sex marriage from becoming legal. the decision is not expected until june. >> tpraoebgt fliers take -- frequent fliers take note. you'll be able to use your tablets and e-readers during takeoff and land -gdz. the new policy is expected to tyke place before the end of the year. for more on that -- >>gretchen: i left my ipad on the whole time during the flight. didn't know it.
3:24 am
>>brian: did the flight land? yes. >>gretchen: more pain at the pump could be headed your way. at least 11 states hiked gas taxes to fill gaping holes in their budgets thanks to infrastructure projects. >>steve: infrastructure? isn't that what the stimulus was supposed to cover for billions and billions of dollars? charles payne joining us right now wearing brand-new glasses and a sharp tie as well. good morning. >> good morning. >>steve: states are facing shortfalls. so where do they go? they go to the gas pump where they can add as much on as they want to? >> absolutely. part of the rationale for the stimulus is we had all these shovel-ready jobs. you go back to when they first started this gas tax thing, like 1932. the idea was we work on infrastructure construction projects. that was from day one. that was from the federal level. then the states said this is a pretty good honey pot of money. we want to do it too. everyone watching the show
3:25 am
say some states have not raised gas taxes in a long time but they raised other taxes. for these governors and states it is low-hanging fruit, they are still going to go after this. >>gretchen: let's look at what the states are. apparently there are 11 of them. some say there are as many as 16. they include california, maryland, massachusetts, michigan, et cetera. do we know how much they are going to raise them? >> for maryland, i think over the next few years they would like to double their gas taxes. in maryland it is going up to 44 cents. >>steve: a gallon. >> a lot of these are already high-tax states in other respects, in personal tax and business tax. it shows you the tipping point. you can start the tax and it has negative returns. here's what people need to be really worried about. when this doesn't work, when it doesn't bring in the revenue they think it will -- and it never does -- the next thing is to start taxing the miles we drive.
3:26 am
forget about the gasoline. they'll stick something to our cars, and the amount of miles we drive is what we'll be taxed. you talk about regressive taxes, this is one of the most regressive taxes. somebody who works at a wal-mart and drives 20 miles round trip every day in maryland is going to be whacked tremendously. stroeup 3 -- >>steve: 3.67 is the national average. why do the states do it? that's where the money is. >> it's low-hanging fruit. by the way, the federal tax i think there is going to be pressure to raise that. don't be surprised if that is raised in part to collect extra money for alternatives to fossil fuel. >>gretchen: i also think they use that particular tax because people, when you fill up your tank, you're not looking at your eye teplzed bill. -- item eyed bill. it is an easy way to fool
3:27 am
people. >> in general we blame opec. i remember opec said a few years ago said your whole government is robbing you. people should know, listen, there's a lost factors that go into your gas prices not just the mean oil prices and those guys overseas that hate us. sometimes it is your local representative looking for more money. >>steve: are you doing the stuart show today? >> i'm going to be on later today and the rest of the week i'm going to host it. a lot of things to talk about, cyprus. the stock market has been rockin' and rollin' too. >>gretchen: coming up on "fox & friends," it is your heart calling. you're about to have a heart attack? how your phone can tell you you're about to keel over. that's coming up next. >>steve: i hope the phone isn't busy. anna kooiman reaching new heights this morning. hrao at that. she's live somewhere. hey, anna. >> good morning to you, steve. good morning to everybody at home. we are at brooklyn

3:33 am
sniff. >>gretchen: if he goes to the same spot, isn't that helpful. now you know he's done his business and now you can go on the walk. >>brian: no. i want to walk. i tell him every time, we're walking. this is your jaunt. >>gretchen: it sounds like you need a trainer to come to your house and figure out how to keep the dog walking instead of sniffing. >>brian: my dog likes to take breaks. he's carrying 115 pounds, evidently that is tough, along with the fur. >>steve: if you could teach the cat to walk the dog, you wouldn't have this problem. >>brian: but i would need to get a cat. i have a rabbit. still have a rabbit. >>gretchen: the rabbit could take the dog for the walk and i would like to see the video. >>brian: i am going to proms to stop listening to my daughter kaitlyn. she wanted a tadpole. after a year we quit. right to the stream goes the tadpole because we couldn't get him to sprout legs. >>steve: you had a year-old tadpole? impossible. that was not a tadpole.
3:34 am
>>gretchen: excuse me, i'm taking a coffee break. >>brian: i was so disappointed, no legs. we went across the street, dumped the tadpole. >>steve: you did not have a tadpole. you had an eel. >>brian: i don't know. it's gone and on its own. i still have a rabbit because my daughter had to have a rabbit. she sees the rabbit twice a year. >>gretchen: you've had that rabbit for seven years. on the first christmas we did this show i gave you a rabbit collar. >>brian: now the rabbit doesn't want to get out the cage. >>steve: the weird thing about the rabbit, it started as a tadpole. >>gretchen: steve, you and i have turned another year older listening to this. >>brian: i apologize. >>steve: this is why people watch the show. >>brian: maybe. >>gretchen: don't ask for the e-mails on that. >>brian: i'm out of pet stories. back to you, steve. >>steve: let's look at headlines on this monday morning. it's serious news at 28 minutes before the top of
3:35 am
the hour. the two men who died skydiving in south florida did not deploy their parachutes, the latest revelation in the mystery this morning. the co-owner of the facility said the equipment appeared to be working properly. automatic backups were activated but did not have time to inflate. the jumpers were seasoned who visited the site every year. >>brian: hello, your heart calling. you're about to have a heart attack. a chip only a half inch long could soon be a powerful weapon against heart attacks. the device would be implanted just below your skin and look at the concentration of certain substances in the blood. that info would be sent to your smart phone or doctor. swiss researchers are working on this medical breakthrough and hope to have it available sometime in the next four years. >>steve: it could automatically tell you your cholesterol. >>gretchen: it is the ad you weren't supposed to see. ford under fire for this berlusconi bondage ad.
3:36 am
it shows three women in the trunk with the former italian prime minister smiling from the driver's seat. it turns out a team at the automakers ad agency made the spot and posted it on-line without approval. ford says it regrets the incident calling the images contrary to its standards of professionalism. >>steve: hey, you bearded guys out there, your facial hair may be more than just a good look. according to recent studies, sporting a beard may have health benefits like fewer allergies. why? pollen and dust particles get stuck in your beard rather than going up your nose. >> i'm pretty prone to allergies. it's circumstantial but the last two years i have noticed a slight difference in the amount of time i spent coughing and sneezing in the springtime. >>brian: what's his point? >>gretchen: beards are dirty. >>brian: beards act as
3:37 am
fail -- as a filter. i'm not sure he said that. >>steve: other benefits of beards, researchers found they block 90% to 95% of u.v. rays reducing the aging process. >>brian: let me tell you what's happening in sports with march madness in full swing, the cinderella story taking hold. 15-seeded florida gulf coast became the lowest seed to ever advance to the sweet 16 after beating san diego state 81-71, they face the florida gators on friday. they tried to scrimmage florida in the off season. they said we're not going to bother. meanwhile ohio state moves on to the round of 16. aaron craft hit the buzzer. the buck eyes will go up against arizona next round.

3:40 am
but they are coming down very light. we could be looking at a little bit of a mix and even some gusts of over 30 miles per hour. the wind is already picking up out here. the national weather service is stating we could see anywhere between one to three inches of snow in new york city. but temperatures, they're so warm. 38 degrees right now in new york city. it really will be very tough for that snow to accumulate in the city. snow across parts of illinois, indiana, ohio, the mid-atlantic, philadelphia you have been reporting snowflakes coming down. winter storm warnings are in effect for a widespread section of the country including areas as far south as north carolina. some of the higher snowfall accumulations, about a foot are possible for higher elevations of the state of west virginia and also pennsylvania. again, temperatures right now -- high temperatures expected to be 33 degrees in cleveland. 39 in new york city. current temperature in new york city, 38. only 25 degrees in kansas city. as we head back inside, atlanta today is expecting a high temperature of only
3:41 am
49. cold temperatures even gripping parts of the southeast. >>steve: stay right out there until we have at least a foot of snow; okay? >>brian: that's not nice. >>steve: i'm kidding. come on back in. maria, god bless you. >> meanwhile, anna kooiman is looking for adventure again. this time she's learning a few things about climbing rocks. anna, where are you today? >> just hanging around, steve. we're at brooklyn boulders, a 20,000 square foot climbing facility, the largest one in new york city. brooklyn boulders has actually had about 100 climbers come through into relatively new program. i am with the first female paraclimber in a u.s. competition and the founder of the program. tell me a little bit about it. >> this program started a year ago. it started off as a two-day clinic, was meant to be just part-time.
3:42 am
through the interest of new york city and the tristate area, we've been operating twice a week. >> it's great to have met a lot of the other climbers and see how much they are enjoying this as well. you personally, your disability is that you're missing your left leg, and you have on a special leg, you say just like i'm wearing special shoes, you're wearing a special boot essentially. tell us what happened. you lost your leg to cancer? >> yes, i had a rare form of cancer which mostly affects young teenage boys under the age of 30. and my leg was amputated to save my life along with chemotherapy. >> it's really impressive what you've been able to do. you lost 60 pound in the last year as well doing your climbing and other exercises. let's let our viewers at home see what we've got. she's been teaching me a few things. it's a lot easier if you
3:43 am
get on the big little knots here. you say this is such a family. you've got to support us here. come on! thank you. thank you. brian, steve, gretchen, you guys want to come out here later? >>steve: i've been there. it's a great place. >>brian: it takes a lot of concentration, right. >> get your right foot up. >> right foot where? >> to your red. >> it's a single competition but it really helps when there's people around you. >>steve: anna thank you very much for taking us to brooklyn and introducing us to her. she's got a very story. very inspiring. >> come on, guys, big cheer. it's the first time. >>steve: there you go.
3:44 am
she hits the top. >>gretchen: we'll have more on that. >>steve: now she gets to come down. >>gretchen: maybe she can just propel down. coming up on "fox & friends," sounds too good to be true. i'm allergic to exercise? it's one woman's reality. how common is it and could you use the same excuse? >>steve: i tried. >>brian: there's nothing holding this man down. bill ayers tkpwefpb a -- bill ayers given a really big honor.

3:49 am
unfamiliar with what passover is all about, it really marks the exodus of the jews from egypt. >> years ago there was a wonderful movie called "trading places." i think that scene is embodied in the passover story because we trade places. here we are free and we try to experience history by tasting history at the table by eating the bitter herbs, the motzah. liberation even for those who are free has special meaning. we are not texting, not on the iphone. we're talking to each other, looking at each other eye to eye. to me, that's liberation. >>steve: that's great. i remember the story from the movies, of course, when in ancient times they would smear the blood of a lamb above the door, and that would keep the angel of death from inflicting pain or death upon the firstborn
3:50 am
in that family. is that the passover? is that where passover comes from? >> that's the first passover. the real story is people who have been slaves for hundreds of years were given the opportunity to experience freedom. i think it makes us value the message of being free especially in america. we jews who have had a history where we face persecution, to be able to live here, sit at the table, not to have to worry about those threats is a great statement about the blessing of living in a free country. >>steve: i was reading when this country was being founded, our founding fathers, benjamin franklin in particular, took part of the story and included it in our symbol. >> i think it has a message for everybody. that's why you often have non-jews who sit at the table with jews. you mentioned to me that you participated at a sader years ago. during the holy week part of the sader is mentioned
3:51 am
during the rituals. i think it has great reference for all of us. let's appreciate who we are and where we are and then we're celebrating passover in the full sense of the word. >>steve: it runs eight nights? >> yes. every night is important. we get to spend time with family and friend. how often do we not find the time to spend with those who are close with us. >>steve: thank you, sir. meanwhile straight ahead, the best excuse ever: i'm allergic to exercise. but for women it's not an excuse. it is a reality for at least one woman. her story coming up. then we've shown you the video. teenagers smashing gallons of milk on purpose and falling to the ground pretending to be hurt. stupid prank or should these kids be arrested? a big legal update straight ahead.

3:56 am
patients with this condition where exercise, before you know it, they have an allergic reaction. symptoms such as itchiness, having hives, warmth, fatigue, even respiratory symptoms. the symptoms can be strange and scary. the key is to know the early warning signs so you're prepared. never exercise alone. exercise without eating. 35% of the time people may have this only when they eat a certain food plus they exercise within a couple hours. we call that food-dependent exercise-induced reactions. that can occur. they need to be pretreated with instructions about what to do, not exercise alone and they need to have an epi net and be prepared in case they have an allergic reaction. these reactions can occur. they are not rare. the bottom line if you see these symptoms, you know someone wh these symptoms triggered by cold

issue. >> brian: what do you think we should do about guns? >> i am a gun person. i believe you need guns are for protection. i am a strong person on the second amendment. you have 300 million guns in the country and bad people have them. what is going to happen? it's simple and common sense. you need protection and you have to have them. there is no doubt about it. you know, if there was ever kind of law passed where people turn in their guns, the good people are going to turn their guns in and bad people are not. >> gretchen: that is long ways away but what he wants to do, he wants to pressure the senators in the toss-up states to favor the universal background check. my question for you, donald, is whether or not you think mayor bloomberg getting involved with

5:20 am
claimed to have read the reports. here we are with another report for gross record for human life in the end. >> gretchen: it's an inspector general report and usually they are supposed to be non-biased? >> when you look at the time line there is some discrepancies. what fox news reported in december of february 2012, i believe, that i.c.e. director opened up an investigation of fast and furious and inquiry after brian carey was killed but -- terry was killed but nobody outside of arizona specifically in washington, d.c. and homeland security really knew about this until march of 2011 when congress opened their investigation. the time line once again under the department of justice side doesn't add up. that is problem when it comes to with a people are saying under oath, what janet napolitano has said under oath, what her
5:21 am
involvement was with attorney general eric holder. >> gretchen: so you don't believe that it's feasible that janet napolitano did not know about this before she said she did? >> it isn't plausible janet napolitano is getting off scott free. dennis burke who was in charge of the department of justice side of the operation in arizona has a longstanding personal and professional relationship with janet napolitano. he served as a staffer when janet napolitano was the attorney general in arizona and chief of staff when was governor and followed her into washington, d.c. as an advisor before being appointed back to u.s. attorney by president obama. at the same time he was attorney general as holder's advisory board and he was with janet napolitano two days after the murder of brian terry in arizona. yet, this report claims they never talked about the case.

someplace. >> brian: cbs ignited a storm when contestants on amazing race visited a b-52 memorial in hanoi glorifying the death of u.s. soldiers. >> gretchen: it infuriated veterans around the country and forced cbs to respond. >> we want to apologize to veterans particularly a those that served in vietnam and any viewers who were offended by the broadcast. all of us here have the most profound respect for the men and women that fight for our country. >> what type of typewriter did they type that out on? bob bechel was probably the first that demanded an apology from the network. i saw that on the five. you heard this story and gutfeld dug it up? >> first of all i was stunned. you i couldn't believe anybody could be insensitive. because i was against the war in
5:42 am
vietnam, i've carried around a little bit i didn't appreciate what these guys had done but the insensitivity of doing it on the 50th anniversary of the beginning of the war in vietnam. so, usually i swear. fortunately i didn't. [ laughter ] >> it came out and all week long it built. it bothered me. usually my own twitter thing that i don't know much about it runs nine against what i say. this was 99 to 1 favorable and the numbers were phenomenal. i tell you, i appreciate the now which i never did before the power of social media. >> gretchen: what do you think of the apology. you said you were going to keep calling. >> yeah, i think it's belated to say the least, but they did it at the right time.
5:43 am
they did it in prime time. i just think -- certainly hope and ask themselves how it could happen. somebody along the line didn't stop and say, wait. you could understand if it was young kids and producers that didn't have a relation to vietnam but somebody been in my generation. it ripped us apart. it defined my generation. it was amazing to me that somebody at cbs didn't catch it. >> you started banging the drum and eventually you reached out to john mccain. the leaders of some other groups hey, cbs, that is stupid. >> i spoke to the head of the american veterans group and we had a long conversation. he was a vietnam veteran. he said something, vietnam memorial for the celebration
5:44 am
recognition of the 50th anniversary and they read the names. i did a bunch of interviews for the five today thinking that cbs would not apologize. one guy apologized and he said, we spent all this time to put it behind us. now something like this comes along and brings it back in our face again. another guy said can you imagine the families on that b-52 what they must have thought. for me it's been kind of a remarkable week. i don't take any credit for it. i take good credit for the millions of people that responded to this. >> brian: but the people respect your opinion and gut reaction and they reacted. >> i think it helped coming from fox. when i called on my liberal side to get into this, it was amazing
