boston's logan airport. this photo of the truck shows the entire windshield smashed. the driver showed no signs of obvious impairment but the county district attorney says he will be tested for drugs and alcohol. passengers on board a russian research ship stuck in the ice near antarctica will now need to be rescued by helicopter. >> stuck down in the snow and ice so the chinese helicopter can reach us when the weather improves. >> seems to be in good spirits. this decision made after three ice breakers failed to reach the ship which got stuck late kphaoefplt -- late christmas eve. while most people ring in the new year with loud cheers, one group starting the new year in silence. for the past 25 years a new york city yoga studio
opened its doors to people who want to bring in the new year quietly for no cost. they can meditate, reflect or maybe even sing auld lang syne and do that in silence. i guess they can do that in their own heads if they want to if they're meditating. >> i'm thinking it right now. >> don't get sad. >> let's talk a little bit about what people are going to be talking about today. yesterday on this program we told you about how over the weekend "the new york times" had a report called a deadly mix in benghazi. it was going to be the "new york times" definitive report on what happened that night where four brave americans were murdered. "the new york times" said al qaeda not involved and the attacks partially motivated by a video. we know that that simply is not true. in fact, we had people on this program yesterday who said it was not true. so we wondered why would "new york times" run something like that. we had a guest on yesterday, a congressman from georgia by the name of lynn westmore land and he
said "the new york times" was laying the groundwork so that hillary clinton who was secretary of state could run for president. they're trying to take the pressure off her and the administration, he said yesterday. well, that got "the new york times" panties all twisted. >> right. so we're hearing from the editorial page author, andrew rosenthal. "for anyone wondering why it is so important to republicans that al qaeda orchestrated the attack or how the obama administration described the attack in its immediate aftermath, the answer is simple. the republicans hope to tarnish democratic candidates by making it seem as though mr. obama doesn't take al qaeda seriously. they also want to throw mud at former secretary of state hillary clinton who they fear will run for president in 2016." he also goes on to say that he hasn't figured out who they're going to be endorsing in 2016 and calls it hilarious that these accusations are evenng made. >> mr. rosenthal's column
has to be one of the most crazy, hysterical pieces i have ever seen in print or the internet anywhere. he goes to great lengths to deny that there's any political connection to the story, but then as you just saw, goes on to attack republicans for some reason instead of defending the integrity of the story, which has come under attack by congressional leaders on both sides of the aisle, republicans and democrats. let's hear and watch what representative gowdy, republican of south carolina, had to say about the "new york times" and their reporting and how he deskrubgts -- deconstructs. >> i want to congratulate "the new york times." it only took 15 months to figure out how to spell benghazi. the video was translated into arabic in early september of twert.
early september of 2012 is when that video was translated into arabic. what explains the violence in benghazi prior to the video being translated and released. with respect to al qaeda, whether it was al qaeda or subsidiary or holding company or limited partnership, to quote hillary clinton, what difference does it make? who cares whether it was al qaeda proper or a subsidiary? four americans are dead and it wasn't a spontaneous reaction to a video. it was planned. >> and that's what a number of people have said. and so it is very -- you know, it's "alice in wonderland" land. it's getting curiouser and curiouser. >> he made the argument there was an assassination attempt on a british ambassador, attacks on other facilities prior to any video. >> the idea that this video is what sparked it doesn't seem to make any sense. we heard from jason
chaffitz on our prime time show last night. he said he spent a long time there, 21 days after the attack and said nobody was talking about it. it was a nonevent. we had another guest on the show yesterday who mentioned some social media monitoring services who were checking out what was going on in the benghazi area and nothing was even spoken about on-line really until the day after the attack, not leading up to it. so it doesn't seem that could have been what sparked it and fueled it. >> the other thing is, what's curious about it is the report on the weekend actually contradicts what the "new york times" reported in 2012 where they said an egypt-based group, the al jamal group had people on the ground that night and they got links to the core al qaeda. it's a little cooky. so it is extraordinary for the editorial guy from "the new york times" to take to his blog to let republicans have it. we're not doing anything for hillary. he said there was no
editorial news room conspiracy because i didn't know about our investigation until i read it in the paper on sunday. he didn't know about it until he read it in the paper on sunday? he stole that from the president, didn't he? stop that! >> and on monday we were feverishly looking through "the new york times" yesterday. the "times" didn't cover the objections by congressman rogers and congressman issa and other leaders of the congress with regard to the"times" story. they didn't cover it until mr. rosenthal started to whine that he was in charge and he would know what was going on but didn't know. >> e-mail us. do you think "the new york times" is laying the groundwork for hillary's run for president or is it just good reportage? >> music superstar beyonce coming under fire. she has a new song coming out. in the beginning of the music video and the song there is a six-second clip
from the challenger disaster, from the day that it exploded back in 1986 where we lost the entire crew. let's hear that little clip at the beginning of the video. >> we're here looking very carefully at the situation. obviously a major malfunction. >> okay. you just heard nasa public affairs officer steve nesbitt. i remember that moment vividly. here is the widow, june scoby, the widow of the commander. she said the moment included in this song is an emotionally difficult one for the challenger families, colleagues and friends. we have always chosen to focus not on how our loved ones were lost but rather on how they lived and how their legacy lives on today. what's curious is beyonce then explained what she did, but she did not
exactly apologize. >> this is what she said: my heart goes out to the families of those loved in the challenger disaster. the song xo is recorded with a serious intention to help heal those who have loved loved ones and to remind us that unexpected things happen. so love and appreciate every minute that you have with those who mean the most to you. the song writers included in the audio and tribute the unselfish work of the challenger crew with hope that they will never be forgotten. so somehow this is more ed of into a tribute -- this is morphed into a tribute. >> except it is not a tribute because if it was a tribute there would abpicture of the crew or something in the music video which i don't recall i have seeing. but she is -- which i don't recall seeing but she is saying i'm an artist. this is my canvas here and i meant no harm by it. >> beyonce is trying to sell this and standing out on coney island.
you would have thought somebody would have said is this a good idea because we are using audio from the moment seven people lost their lives. yet, the same day she offered up that explanation of why they used it, want to show you an instagram that she sent out last night. that's beyonce. if you can tell in the background, she's in front of the last supper. leenardo da a vinci's last supper. >> let us know what you think. was it just art? did she not study her history? let us know. >> it is 13 after the hour. from new government regulations to new taxes and fees, 2014 is going to be a big year for big government. stuart varney here to break down the new rules. come on in, stu. >> and remember these?

good morning. welcome back. 17 minutes after the hour. a new year means new regulations courtesy of big government. >> it gets bigger and bigger. here with the top ways government plans to exert its power, host of varney and company, stuart varney. let's start with calorie counts coming to restaurant menus. >> there is a move afoot to make all restaurant chains and food vendors post the calorie count. >> and vending machines. >> it will be popular. people want to know how many calories they are consuming. it's a huge hassle for the food vendors. it will cost vending machine operators 25 million bucks a year and it will be impossible for pizza parlors because how
do you calculate toppings and calories. >> what about regulations coming to cigarettes? >> what you're talking about is e-cigarettes. please, mr. president, don't stamp on the best quit-smoking product on the market. i think that's exactly what the administration wants to do. the f.d.a. wants to introduce rules on e-cigarettes to make them very similar to the treatment of tobacco products. fees, marketing, that kind of thing will be tightly regulated. i don't think that's a very good thing. >> are they dangerous for you? >> you ingest nicotine. you get your drug fix of nicotine without the smoke. that's what they do for you. but you can get away from regular cigarettes by using those things. >> then it might get young kids to think it's okay to smoke. >> all true. >> number three, what about executives being forced to disclose their pay? >> pure politics. this is part of financial
reform, dodd-frank. they want the chief executive of the company to say this is what i earned and this is how much more it is than the average worker in my company. huge problems with this. how do you calculate what the c.e.o. earned? if you get the stock option, you can't calculate the value of that. it's done purely to shame c.e.o.'s at a time when the president is pushing for income equality as opposed to income inequality. this is pure politics. >> something else that is political and we've been talking about this over the past couple of months. the e.p.a. is going to exert power over streams and ponds. >> why is that bad? >> have you got a tiny stream that runs through your backyard? if you've got one, the e.p.a. wants to regulate it. do you think you're going to be allowed to use weed killer? >> should it be dirty? >> are you going to be allowed to use lawn fertilizer with a stream running past. >> what if it pollutes? >> what do you mean pollutes? to these people anything -- it's the government taking
control of your property. if you want that, peter, go for your life. i hate it. where's brian? >> if you have a dirty stream, i don't want to come to your house. >> the streams that run through my property in upstate new york feed directly into the reservoirs which provide fresh water for new york city. i do not pollute. >> i look forward to being there. >> happy new year. >> stuart, thank you very much. watch his show today at 9:20 eastern on the business channel. >> 20 minutes after the hour, coming up on "fox & friends," an m.r.i. for back pain, a c.a.t. scan for a head injury, sounds important but are they necessary? dr. david samadi with the tests you need and don't need coming up in 2014. >> a street performer outdone but a little kid, it is the show-stealing

major tpheud dahl has san wanted a bible at the jail where he was held before his trial. he was sentenced to death for killing 13 people including a woman. >> it's often first instinct for doctors to order an m.r.i. for lower back pain or a c.a.t. scan for a kid's head injury but tests like these may not be needed resulting in unnecessary costs and bodily harm as well. joining us with the medical tests you need and some to avoid this new year is fox news medical a team dr. david samadi. >> good morning. >> some of the tests you really should have when necessary? we've got a list of them. blood pressure screening, cholesterol and thyroid screening. why should you have those? >> blood pressure is very important because it's a silent killer and you want to make sure your blood pressure is usually around 120 over 80. if your blood pressure is high, you want to make sure that you repeat it at least a couple more times before you really make sure that you have it. the reason is because heart
disease and stroke, these are silent killers and you want to know what your blood pressure is. our biggest problem in this country is the high consumption of salt. we're consuming about 3500 milligrams of salt. we should be around 2500 milligrams. if you're a diabetic, have kidney disease you want to go to 1500. check your blood pressure around the age of 20 every year. cholesterol is important because that is another risk for heart disease and coronary artery disease et cetera. your cholesterol level should be less than 200. start checking it at the age of 20 because we have a lot of juveniles and adults having these problems. your good cholesterol, h.d.l. should be over 50 and your bad, l.d.l. should be less than important. those screening are important. >> your doctor might say lay off this stuff or take a pill which is always handy. this is good advice, some
things you don't probably need. for instance, a stress test. you don't need that unless there is a history of heart disease. >> absolutely. a lot of people are getting stress tests but it is not necessary. if there is something on your e.k.g., if you have a family history of heart disease i think a doctor should be in communication and get that stress test. but to walk in and say get this stress test because i may have a heart attack that is not indicated or overdoing it. i think some of the thing we talked about, getting your thyroid tests, getting your p.s.a. for men, a mammogram for women, those are necessary. but to get stress tests or c.a.t. scans or m.r.i.'s for back pains are not necessary. the more is not merrier. we're overdoing them. >> i know one of my kids got hit in the head pretty hard, went to the hospital, they said you've got to have a c.a.t. scan. you say with a kid that is not necessarily needed? >> a lot of this is defensive medicine. if they don't get a c.a.t.
scan and something goes wrong doctors are afraid of getting sued. the truth is a lot of it is unnecessary. a good physical exam, a good doctor that will judge and find out if it is necessary or not, if there is any neurologic changes, it is necessary. we're overdoing c.a.t. scans that give too much radiation to the kid and it is unnecessary. >> great advice. dr. samadi, thank you so much. >> happy new year. >> it's been great having you a part of our team. we look forward to 2004. next on the rundown, 2013 would not have been complete without this. ♪ what does ♪ the fox say >> so dumb. what is it about? we've got the top videos that went viral in 2013. did you know this year there is something a little different about the times square ball drop? maria molina is the cat in the hat.

bartlet. jeff, good morning. there are some things we all believe or at least i believe, and in reading what you have to say, it kind of made my day to say i'm making mistakes. let's look at the first one. engine oil should be changed every 3,000 miles. everyone tells me that. they say i'm a car expert. change it every 3,000 miles or your car will die. true or false? >> that one's false. like many myths, this is more in the industry's favor than the consumers. with modern cars, many can go as far as 10,000 miles in between oil changes. the key is to look in your owner's manual. do what is appropriate for not only your car but the way you drive it. >> if you're driving in the city, stop and go traffic, does that make a difference? >> it does. that is described as severe driving which as we know in new york city can be pretty severe. >> next one, inflate tires to the pressure shown on the tire's sidewall. true or false?
>> false. that's one i hear about a lot. if you look at the side of a tire there are all kinds of numbers there that give you specifications. >> serial numbers, names, size. >> tread wear. this is information about the tire, not the tire on the car. that information, you want to look at a sticker located in the driver's doorjamb. that will tell you what's appropriate for that tire on that car. >> you go out in the 20-degree weather and open the door and look at the door itself? >> right. >> it will tell you exactly what it should be. >> maybe take an iphone picture of it so you have it. not a bad idea? >> not bad. >> if regular grade fuel is good, premium, of course, must be better. sounds like it makes sense. does that make sense? >> intuitively premium sound great but the reality is the vast majority of cars, regular is just fine. the key for this information is look inside the fuel filler door. it will say one of three things. it will say regular, in which case is the answer.
it may say premium is recommended. that means that if you use premium fuel it may optimize performance at wide-open throttle. but unless you live your life one quarter mile at a time -- >> unless you're going 90 miles an hour all out it is not going to have a lot of significant. >> save money. >> and the mileage will be the same? >> absolutely. >> let your engine warm up for several minutes before driving. that's one of the first things i learned. do not put that car into drive, especially on a cold day, until that car has warmed up. people go out 15 minutes before and start the car up so it's warmed up. >> that might be tempting on a cold morning like today but it's really not necessary. in fact, with modern cars, really they need very minimum warming up. in fact, all you do, get in, turn it on, buckle up. by the time you're comfortable the car is ready. it will run most efficiently once it's warmed up but it's going to warm up better once you're
driving it. >> winter presents a lot of problems generally, doesn't it, in terms of using your car and using your truck? >> it presents a variety of challenges. all the fluids are going to be colder. the tires are going to be colder. in reality, these modern cars, they're good to go. >> we thank you so much and we love reading your magazine and your stuff. see you again soon. happy new year. coming up, the new push to make barbie bigger. should they make a kids? a fair and balanced debate is coming up with anna and you won't want to miss it. and the ball drop in times square may be the most famous. but ever hear of the strawberry drop? we'll tell you how the rest of the nation rings in the new year next. ♪ ♪ good job!
how you doing? hope you're doing well. watching the ball drop in times square may be an all american tradition on new year's eve. but have you ever heard of the strawberry drop? or how about the great moon pie drop in alabama? we have the quirky ways new year's eve is celebrated around the country. let's start in north carolina. there is a possum drop there apparently. >> happy new year and there is indeed a possum drop in brass town, north carolina. they've been doing it for 22 years. a family friendly celebration. they actually take a live possum, put it in a box and drop
it. peta, anti-meat people got involved. they filed an injunction. but the judge says the possum is cleared to do tonight's drop. another big celebration is in the south, mobile, alabama, probably my favorite drop of all time. it is the moon pie drop which is a southern delicacy. it's a 12-foot moon pie. they drop it at the stroke of midnight. lots of fun, lots of chocolate and graham crackers. then the last story is a bit of sad news. from harrisburg, pen opinion. strawberry drop. they did a test run. unfortunately, somebody dropped the berry, three stories. it smashed. unfortunately, organizers are in a jam. >> you going to be here all week? are your arms flying in from dc? what do you think about the atmosphere there in times
square? there aren't -- nobody is there yet, but it's going to be packed in a few hours. people start lining up early. >> it is extremely outrageous. so much fun. they're going to be hundreds of thousands of people here from all across the world. we're going to have a great time tonight and many folks will be watching fox news channel. we'll have a great special with bill and elisabeth. >> getting kicked off at 9:00 o'clock. todd starnes, thanks so much and happy new year. >> happy new year. >> four minutes before the top of the hour. if you thought millions losing health insurance and the disastrous rollout of the obamacare web site was bad, buckle up, everyone. wait until you hear what's in store for 2014. plus it was a box office hit based on our navy seals. but is "captain phillips" the best movie of the year? kevin mccarthy's top pick coming up. >> one minute. >> you come with us! >> don't get in there! >> got to get him on the ship!

osts are going to go up, absolutely. not only because there are a lot of new taxes in obamacare and whether you're on the exchange plans or not, your health insurance policies are going to have to forward those new tax, plus a lot of mandates that have benefits that have to be covered and new rules that the health insurance has to operate under, all will drive up costs for everybody. >> sure, because everybody has got to have the same coverage, except the people at the last minute who got the catastrophic stuff. >> or that have waiver. >> exactly. if they're lucky enough to know somebody and get one. but one of the things i hear is, why should i have to pay for somebody else's birth control? >> because the government says so. because the government has decided that that is preventive
care and there are several dozen lawsuits that are beginning to win in court saying that's a violation of religious liberty. and people should not be required to pay for birth control, abortions, sterilization if they don't feel that it's something they comply with religiously. >> one of the problems is over the last couple months, we've seen as the web site has rolled out and it's completely imploded, is now we understand there are problems at the back end, the cash register part. there could be people who go to the doctor tomorrow who think they have coverage, but they don't. >> absolutely. the "washington post" actually had some examples of that the other day where people were saying that they had enrolled, they've spent weeks on the web site to get enrolled and then they finally found the web site kicked them out at the end. so they had not billed -- built the back end of the web site so people would be able to pay and make sure they're enrolled. so people need to call the insurance company that they have
enrolled with to make sure that they're registered and they have to pay the premium. in most cases by january 10. >> so that's basic coverage. but then at the local level, you've got to know whether or not your doctor is even involved in your plan. >> exactly right. and your doctor needs to know whether or not he's involved in the plan. >> doctors don't know? >> they don't know. >> are you kidding me? >> in california, first of all, about half of doctors are not participating in the obamacare plan. but these plans change every year. people on medicare advantage, about 1,000 doctors have been dropped from several of those plans. so people need to call their doctor and hope they know whether or not they can still see them as part of the plan they're in. >> it all starts when the clock strikes midnight. >> by the way, everybody has to have coverage starting january 1. >> or you're going to have to pay a tax. >> pay a tax, a penalty tax. >> it's not a fee. it's a tax. >> by the way, i have one point of interest. this sydney opera house, you
could build the sydney opera house today for the amount of money it has taken them to build healthcare.gov. >> that's a lot of money. >> trivia. >> man. that is great trivia. grace marie turner, thank you very much for joining us today. >> thank you. >> all right. coming up, another day, another explosive report about the nsa. this time how they have complete access to your i. phone. you have one in your pocket right now? they can turn it on and listen to you. and she is the little girl whose battle for a lung transplant changed american law. up next, peter johnson, jr. who helped do that checked in with sarah murnaghan and her family. ♪ ♪ those litt things still get you.

and she does it and she doesn't quit and she's getting stronger every day and she is my mirror row and my -- hero and inspiration. >> she's a hero for a lot of americans. as a father, fran, you became a hero of mine, although i don't think i ever expressed that to you. i saw you in the hospital room and i saw the concern and the anxiety, but the intense devotion and love. at first i really wanted to cry. but then i said no, this is an example of great strength. if he's not crying about the daughter that he's saving, i won't either. you've inspired so many people. what kept you so strong for so long in this fight to save your beautiful daughter? >> a lot of it was actually sarah. 'cause sarah never wanted to quit. and she gave us the strength and together as a family, it's very important to have a support structure and a family. we bonded together and we knew we needed to get something done.
so we just really worked towards that goal. >> you really did. let me ask you this question if i can, sarah, what is your dream for 2014? what do you dream about for you and your family in the coming year? >> well, i'm going to get a new pet. a teacup piggy. >> you want a teacup piglet in the house? >> uh-huh. >> and what do your parents say about that? >> they said yes. >> they said yes? okay. i heard them promise that. and i know they'll do that. i remember when you were very sick, we had that conversation and i heard your parents say yes. so i'm witness to that testament of love on that day.
