tv The FOX Report With Shepard Smith FOX News July 23, 2013 4:00pm-5:01pm PDT
down. [ laughter ] >> bret: maybe. thanks for inviting us into your home tonight. that is it for this "special report," fair, balanced and unafraid. >> shepard: this is the fox report. tonight, the disgraced former congressman anthony weiner who resigned in shame after a sexting scandal now in the middle of a new one. another woman. new pictures. more pictures, and coming up, weiner's wife speaks. plus, another punishment for the police sergeant who released photos of the accused boston bomber. >> shepard: the sergeant says he released the photos to show a different side of "rolling stone's" cover model. bombing survivors are supporting him. and his son says dad did the right thing. >> i couldn't be prouder of him. >> shepard: but his superiors say he broke the rules. >> no one should be making decisions unilaterally
about what information can be shared and what cannot. >> shepard: they have already suspended him and now you will hear what they say about his future on the force. plus, terrifying moments as a passenger jet's nose gear collapses. >> i saw him coming in. he was kind of low. >> next thing you know, we hit and we hit hard. >> it landed like on its nose and it started skidding. >> i saw a wheel pop off of the plane. >> ladies and gentlemen, we are not there you need to take your seats. >> now, you will hear from those who were on board when it happened. but, first from fox this tuesday night, anthony weiner, or carlos danger as he apparently calls himself online. the former sexting congressman admits that he did send more graphic photos and more very graphic text messages to a woman who was not his wife. and that woman reportedly claims it happened more than a year after he quit congress.
so, he sexted, he got caught. he resigned from congress, then he kept sexting to strangers. he apologized to them for any inconvenience. then announced he is running for mayor of new york city. tonight he is refusing to quit that race. he is the frontrunner in most polls or at least was before we got all this new information. and his wife is standing by him in a very public show of support. anthony weiner resigned from congress two years ago, after he admitted he sent this picture to another woman who was not his wife. in one of the newly released photos, anthony weiner decided to ditch the underwear. tonight he apologized and his wife defended him, even spoke at a news conference. >> our marriage, like many others, has had its ups and it's downs. it took a lot of work, and a whole lot of therapy to get to a place where i could forgive anthony.
anthony has made some horrible mistakes, both before he resigned from congress and after. but i do very strongly believe that that is between us and our marriage. we discussed all of this before anthony decided to run for mayor. so really what i want to say is, i love him. i have forgiven him. i believe in him. and, as we have said from the beginning, we are moving forward. >> let me just reiterate to my wife how sorry i am that i did these things and how sorry i am to the people that got these messages for any inconvenience or embarrassment they caused accept shep weiner's wife is a friend and long-time aide to secretary of state and first lady hillary clinton. the weiner's were married at the clinton home. mrs. clinton famously defended her husband during
the 1992 campaign and monica lewenski scandal. tonight anthony weiner says the behavior is behind me. is his life in politics behind him as well? julie banderas live in our new york newsroom. were we expecting anthony weiner's wife to appear at this news conference? >> no. it was quite a shock, actually, to everybody in the room and all of us watching it here in our tv screen. political news conference who no one saw coming with his wife. the new york city mayoral candidate and former discuss graced congressman disgraceful scandal which ended his congressional career. listen. >> i'm glad these things are behind us. i know that this was a very public thing that we had happen to us. but by no means does it change the fundamentals of my feelings here. and that is that i want to bring my vision to the people to the city of new york. i hope they are willing to still continue to give me a second chance.
>> it was not an easy choice in any way. but i made the decision that it was worth staying in this marriage. that was the decision i made for me, for our son, and for our family. i didn't know how it would work out, but i did know that i wanted to give it a try. >> and so despite three of his rivals for mayor immediately calling weiner to drop out of race. he says he will stay in it for the middle class. news leaked on the site dirty which posted those images, conversations that came under carlos danger to a 22-year-old woman. the woman says the relationship carried on until august of 2012. well after weiner's resignation june of 2011. the web site posted that picture allegedly taken by weiner or his namesake if you will. in it he is nude shooting down at his feet. we are not going to show
that picture. and we are not going to read those messages either. >> oh, no. >> shepard: what now for the campaign. >> according to quinnipiac poll released another anthony weiner leads the pack 25% of the vote. slight margin over christine quinn who is supported by 22% of democrats. due to the time line of the alleged messages, we have to wait and see if voters will change their minds. if you remember, when weiner resigned, shep he publicly apologized to the voting public. he publicly vowed he would learn from his mistakes and then did he this. >> shepard: no reaction from client number 9. the former new york governor eliot spitzer. resigned five years ago after a prostitution scandal. is he also trying to make a political come back running for new york comptroller. in a new campaign ad eliot spitzer says and i quote i failed big time but he is asking voters for a share shot. eliot spitzer is also leading in that same
quinnipiac poll by 15 points over the manhattan burrow president. one poll says notoriety is helping anthony weiner and eliot spitzer or as the pollingsters call them the tabloid twins. former new york city city hall staff says the mayor once asked her to work without panties. and on another occasion inquird about when she might consider getting naked. now she is suing for sexual harassment. the former communications director filed the suit against the mayor yesterday, again, the mayor of san diego. she is the first person to publicly claim to be a victim of his ad advances. after a series of anonymous allegations, the mayor there, bob filner, admitted that he did intimidate women who worked for him but he denied sexually harassing anybody. and he says he is going to fight these claims. critics have called for mayor filner to step down. he has thus far refused to do so. thankfully, the royal baby looks like mom.
that from prince william and his wife as they presented their newborn son to the world today and in london crowds roared with approval. [cheers] a lot of screaming outside the hospital as the royals appeared for the first time since the birth. it was little tough to seat baby there here are a few closeup photographs. william told folks his son already has more hair than he does. and he says that's not the only encouraging sign. >> he has got a good pair of lungs on him for sure. is he a big boy. is he quite heavy. we are still working on a name. we have that soon to come. >> shepard: do get on that. after a quick chat with the reporters. william and kate was back in the hospital for a bit. but then emerged minutes later with william carrying his unnamed son in a car seat, a rather undignified mode of transportation for the heir to the british throne, but, still it served its purpose. with prince william at the wheel they all headed off
to kensington palace to begin their first night home fromtal, their first night as a family. amy kellogg with the news live for us this evening in london. hello, amy. >> hello, shep. well, no, we didn't get a name. we didn't get a whole lot of information about the cambridge plans. quite frankly, shep, a lot of people just wanted to catch a glimpse of the couple and see the future king of england and also 15 other countries who recognized the sovereign and that look they obviously got this evening when the duke and duchess of cambridge came out smiling, beaming for the cameras. the little baby boy as you mentioned a bit harder to see under all the folds of his blanket but his little hands kept kind of popping out and moving. at one point it almost looked like a little regal wave. in any event william who often has a tense relationship with the press acknowledged this evening that it's been a bit of a long stretch for the group outside the hospital, too. >> i remind of his
timeliness when he is a bit older. hopefully you guys can all go back to normal now and we all look after him. >> and, shep, william proved that he is not too posh for pampers, acknowledging also tonight that he has changed his first nappy. >> amy kellogg. when prince william walked out of hospital, he was following in the footsteps of his father more than 30 years ago. the year was 1982, prince charles stood in that very same spot as his wife princess diana held the newborn prince william in her arms. boston now. and the state police taking action against the sergeant who handed over photos showing the capture of the boston marathon bomber or suspect at least at this point. in retaliation for that controversial "rolling stone" cover. but, for now, his job is safe. sergeant sean murphy released those photos last week. they first appeared on the web site for boston magazine. he said at the time this guy is evil. this is the real boston
bomber. not someone fluffed and buffed for the cover of "rolling stone" magazine. state police say sergeant murphy was not authorized to make those photos public. today, we saw the sergeant outside state police headquarters. did he not speak to reporters, but his son did. >> throughout this process, he has shown the characteristics that i hope to some day model myself after. if i can be one fourth of the man he is now, i will be more than happy with my life. i couldn't be prouder. >> shepard: sergeant murphy's son calls his dad a huge hofer. "the fox report's" correspondent jonathan hunt is live with more now. jonathan, what happens next? >> massachusetts state police say they have strict procedures for how this goes ahead now. sergeant murphy is placed on restrictive duty. his gun and badge taken away while this investigation goes on into the leaking of those photographs that's likely to take several weeks. colonel album said no one officer can make a union lateral decision to release
that kind of evidence. he also said, quite clearly that he believes sergeant murphy will keep his job, listen. >> in the realm of possibilities, we have a very specific organizational chart that we follow for disciplinary matters. it could, you know, conceivably the idea of termination could be out there. again, i'm the colonel of the state police, i'm going to say to you that that is not a realistic option in this case. >> colonel called sergeant murphy a man of character and a man of honor, shep. >> shepard: sergeant murphy's lawyer spoke today, right, jonathan. >> his lawyer said he hopes ultimately investigators will understand sergeant murphy's motivations. he also dismissed the idea that the release of the photos could effect the trial. listen. >> i understand why the u.s. attorney is upset. we all want to control this stuff. but the concept that this pictures will have anything to do with the trial is preposterous. the guy was captured live on tv.
helicopter shots. so the concept that a picture of him is going to do anything to the trial, it's not going to do anything to the trial. >> but a few weeks now before we get the results of the investigation, shep? >> shepard: jonathan, thank you. we're getting a look inside the passenger jet that smashed its nose in the ground while landing. you'll hear from passengers who say they didn't know what was happening. and from witnesses who watched it all unfold last night. that's coming up from the journalists of fox news on this tuesday fox report. ready for you first day, little brother? i guess. did you download that book i sent?

prompting emergency evacuation right on the runway. it's news that was breaking this hour last evening. now we are hearing stories from some of the people on board that jet, including a man who shot a video of the whole thing. [[beep] >> the impact from the landing so strong, it knocked the camera right out of the guy's hand. >> we could smell smoke. we knew something was burk. -- burning. we thought wow we hope -- really we didn't know what was going on. >> he continued to record as the plane skidded to a stop. in the first frantic moments the flight attendants were apparently unaware that the plane would not be taxiing to the gate. >> open the doors. >> calm down. >> ladies and gentlemen, we are not there you need to take your seats, please, take your seats. >> shepard: today, crews towed the damaged jet to the runway as those who describe what happened described what they called a frightening scene. >> the mane was coming and my husband noticed that it was out of shape, like it
wasn't supposed to land that way. >> kind of like a -- noise. it wasn't too loud. yeah, that's scary. >> and then what happened? >> he crashed. >> shepard: they say sparks flew as the plane touched down. that's when airport officials say the nose wheel collapsed. >> the aircraft skidded down the run way on its nose and veered off and came to grass in a grass area between the runway and taxiway. >> shepard: southwest flight 345 came into new york from nashville. passengers say the airline delayed the departure blaming an issue with one of the tires. but they claim the pilot didn't give them any indication of a problem before slamming into the ground. >> a little scary but, you know, since nothing happened, yeah, i was shaken up. >> shepard: a lot of them were. emergency crews report treating several people for minor injuries. >> first thing that goes through my mind is like are people going to be freaked out? is it going to get -- you know, all in all, hey, we walked away, no fire, no
deaths. >> shepard: there were about 150 people on board the jet. federal investigators are trying to figure out exactly what happened. southwest reports its last inspection was thursday. attention smokers. the feds say some cigarettes may be more dangerous than others. we'll tell you exactly which ones and why. plus, there is a push to keep the feds from collecting your phone records unless they actually suspect you of doing something. but the effort is facing opposition on both sides of the political aisle. why is that? well, it's next.

fox has learned the head of the nsa went to capitol hill today to personally ask lawmakers to vote against the measure. how do we know how those meetings wept any amendment going after the nsa. general alexander told fox that he wanted to talk to lawmakers about the facts about the nsa phone program to help inform debate. he says every time he speaks with members, it is helpful but clearly there is some bipartisan support building for cutting off money for nsa surveillance. >> the debate really comes down to whether we want to allow the nsa to collect these records or whether we want to deny them the funding to do so. >> i certainly think that the american people want to sibert oversight and want to see, frankly, these programs reach a better balance between our privacy rights and our security. i think they have gone too
far over into the security side. >> beyond this particular amendment, you can expect this debate to continue into the fall as the house takes up spending measures on things like intelligence. shep? >> shepard: but some members of each party are saying that it's really dangerous to mess with those programs. >> well, that's right. we have heard from some lawmakers who worry that the actual debate on the house floor could lead to more secrets leaking out. then there are those who argue that this amendment itself would send the wrong message to professionals in the intelligence community. >> i see this amendment as an amendment that really is -- it turns the switch off and on. it turns the switch off, which would not allow, you know, our intelligence community and our defense to protect our country from attacks. >> the risks are that in aid of the conversation you let slip things that shouldn't be talked about. and, the opportunity for additional misinformation to be communicated to the american people is greater. >> tonight, the top members
of the homeland security committee judiciary armed services, and intelligence committee in the house have all penned a letter to their colleagues urging them to vote no on this defunding amendment, shep? >> shepard: mike, president's plan to start arming some rebels in syria. now the top military officer is revealing the other options on the table and their price tags. general martin dempsey is chairman of the joint chiefs of staff. he says it could cost us up to $1 billion per month to establish a no fly zone to protect the rebels. another 1 billion-dollar option would be to set up buffer zones giving safe areas to organize and train. that would require thousands of u.s. troops on the ground. general dempsey says the late -- the last, i should say, the least invasive option would be to simply train, assist, and advise rebel fighters. that would cost us roughly $500 million per year. continuing coverage of his royal lineness, the baby.

>> shepard: health news. menthol cigarettes pose a greater public health risk than regular secrets cigarettes. that according to the food and drug administration today. the feds say an independent review finds that the minty flavoring leads more people to smoke and makes it it harder to quit i'm shepard smith. this is the fox report. it's the bottom of the hour. time for the top of the news prince william and the duchess of cambridge and royal son palace spending first night at home. earlier today the couple emerged from royal hospital young prince in london. while folks around the world have finally gotten their first glimpse of the royal baby, the new parents still apparently have not come up with a name. our resident brit jonathan hunt has been following this for us. what about a name for this prince? when will we know? >> they don't seem to be in any hurry to tell us, shep. william and kate are taking their time as, of course, is their royal privilege to do, which gives brits plenty of time to indulge
in second favorite past time after drinking. that would be betting. the favorites for names so far are george followed by james, arthur and alexander. the royal couple are really struggling they could do worse than going to the new anthony weiner sexting pseudonym generator that has popped up on 00 web. i helpfully plugged in baby cambridge it came up with ignasio gamble. a name clearly fit for a king. >> shepard: you are out of your mind. we have turned to your mother for commoner's view on this. what did mom have to say? >> mum is terribly excited like some people she was glued to her tv screen today waiting for the doors to pop open and see the royal couple and she was delighted. there she is with stepdad mike as usual. i texted mum and said how do you feel? she replied oh, we were both enchanted to see them.
proud to let us all have a peek at their precious baby. i cried with joy, said mummy, which, mummy, if i remember correctly is something you very conspicuously did not do when i was born. >> shepard: that was not joy. >> no. something else entirely. >> jonathan, thank you. he once said he would bet his life that he did not take a performance enhancing drugs now he is out for the year for violating. suspended milwaukee brewer star braun without pay. he will lose half of his 8.5-million-dollar salary and not first run-in either. officials tried to suspend him back in 2011. he appealed and won. he strongly innocence then. >> if i have made mistakes for my life i have taken responsibility for my actions. i truly believe in my heart that this substance never entered my body in at any point. in this case he is he not
appealing. experts say if ryan braun's career were not tarnished before it is now. >> he denied, denied, denied. he lied to his teammates, lied to the public. lied to ownership, lied to the commissioner. and now he is in the same category as lance armstrong. >> shepard: braun is reportedly at least one of a dozen players linked to a florida clinic accused of distributing performance enhancing drugs. trace gallagher with more from our west coast news hub. if you had to take a year off this would be, well, a good one. >> a good one for ryan braun because is he having a bad one anyway. his numbers are very average. he has been hurt for the last couple of months. if you check the standings, the brewers are dead last. he is well out of the pennant race. he forefits the rest of the season and $4.5 million. his contract says is he set to make $113 million and unlike lance armstrong, he gets to keep his career. braun issued an apology that reads, in part, quote: i'm not perfect. i realize now that i have made some mistakes. i'm willing to accept the
consequences of those actions. i'm very grateful for the support i have received from players, ownership, and the fans in milwaukee and around the country. and one of those who believed in ryan braun was the packers quarterback ryan rogers who actually bet a fan his entire salary for this year if braun was juicing. aaron rogers might miss that 10 million bucks. shep? >> shepard: who is next, arod? >> yeah, i mean alex rodriguez is the top of the list. the evidence against arod is actually a lot stronger, a lot stronger than of that of ryan braun. his suspension might even be worse. 30 other players could also be involved. all connected to buy owe genesis, which is a florida antiaging clinic. the founder of that collin clinic, this man anthony bausch has agreed to cooperate with major league baseball. analysts believe baseball is trying to get to the bottom of this. listen. >> alex rodriguez, of course, has done some remarkable things on the
field. so, for baseball to go after these guys and go after them because it felt that there was significant evidence against them, that does speak volumes. and it does show that there is no one immune, no one safe from the testing. no one safe from investigations. and that baseball will pursue these matters to the fullest. >> and the players' union now says that it will not defend any players where the evidence against them is overwhelming. shep? >> shepard: trace, our viewers probably remember that the formerrer senate majority leader george mitchell conducted an extensive investigation into performance enhancing drugs in baseball. since the so-called mitchell report became public in 2007, the league has suspended about a dozen players for positive tests. others linked to doping. well, we were expecting to soon hear from the people who george zimmerman helped rescue. yesterday, police confirmed zimmerman helped pull a family from their overturned suv after a crash last week. a spokesman for zimmerman's
defense attorney says the family will hold a news conference tomorrow to talk about the rescue. that was the first time anybody reported seeing zimmerman in public since the jury acquitted him of killing the teenager trayvon martin. or murdering him at least. we are also expecting to hear from trayvon martin's father tomorrow. a lawyer says tracy martin will speak in washington at the first ever meeting of congressional caucus on black men and boys. we are hearing for the first time police dispatch calls that offer new insight into a deadly home invasion in connecticut six years ago today. that's when police say two intruders brutally killed the wife of dr. william petit and their two daughters who were 17 and 11 years old. cops say those home invaders beat dr. petit with a baseball bat and left him to die but he managed to escape. a jury eventually convicted the two men you see here for crimes including murder and rape. they are death row. but now we're learning about dozens of calls among police that july morning,
raising new questions about how officers responded to the situation. laura ingle with the news live in our new york city newsroom. laura. >> hi, shep, all along family members have voiced frustration with what they have called the lack of urgency by police the morning of the crime. the calls obtained by hartford current paint a chilling account of the critical moments after jennifer hawkeye petit left the bank with the cash she was ordered to withdraw from the two men holding her family hostage. one call between the responding police lt. at the bank and police dispatch revealed police questioned in hawkeye petit was really in trouble or was just trying to get a bunch of cash out of her husband's account. as the situation evolved, cheshire police sergeant and hostage negotiator eric began was called into dispatch asking if he was needed
>> not at this time. other police dispatch released swat members also called in to ask if they should suit up and head over to the scene of the house. they were also told not at this time. jennifer hawkeye family members have repeatedly asked police about the way the home invasion was handled but have never received a response. not even a call back. police still have not released a review of this incident. shep? >> shepard: laura ingle, thank you. pope francis is just a couple of days into his first international trip as pontiff. already, there have been some major security concerns, including this: we will show you how one wrong turn turned into a mob screen next.
