forgive? perhaps. forget? someone said if you're going to align yourself with reverend al sharpton who has a history -- >> al sharp ton a man who got rich and famous bashing police officers. when you do that as mayor of new york city, you have a big problem. my concern here is that this false narrative being pushed by everyone from obama to holder to mayor de blasio that we have an epidemic on our hands of cops shooting young black men is not only false, it is harmful to the law-abiding residents of these poor communities. >> coming up a little bit later on fox news channel we're watching after that meeting and report all of that news. i want to get your take on what the president is about to do. he's playing golf in hawaii. >> interrupting weddings.

>> and he's got his pen ready to go because he says when republicans take over congress, they start to control things, he is ready to start doing vetoes. i think he's only done two vetoes since 2009. he is ready to start vetoing everything republican. >> that is what he said in an interview that he prerecorded. does this sound like divide to you? >> after the election he said i hear you i got the message. apparently he didn't get the message. i suggest that he use that pen, use it as much as he wants because then the american people will say you know what sir whose side are you on? why do you approve the keystone pipeline? why do you address the problems on obamacare? >> charles krauthammer said if you put this out there republicans should show they are not the party of "no." they are getting work done. pass these bills, pass them and force the president's hand.

>> the problem with what's happening now is harry reid has not had any votes. there's been total dysfunction in the united states senate. mish mcconnell made a promise he's going to get regular order. what does that mean to the people listening? you actually do the people's business, do the work and put things forward. put things on the president's desk and let him sign them or not. >> you know that well? >> i was there three years. i know the dysfunction of harry reid. i think he'll go down as one of the worst majority leaders in the history of our country. >> the president said he's not going to rule out putting a u.s. embassy in tehran. will this embolden them. ralph peters said we tried hitting the reset button with russia many that didn't work. listen. >> since the reset button didn't work with russia we're going to try it with iran.
3:09 am
while this is going on, obama said maybe we'll give you an embassy again, meanwhile iran's nuclear weapons program proceeds. and because of the poor structure of our efforts against isis in iraq, even if those efforts are successful, we're going to hand iran an empire that will spread well into the arab middle east. >> the president seems to be on this path of forgiving rogue nations. cuba iran. what do you make of it? >> i think iran is still a terrorist nation. their efforts are the carrot and stick approach have not worked obviously. they are leading us on wanting more and more and more extensions. i never would have given them, i never would have left the sanctions. you have to have that check and balance, and it's not there. >> why would he not want that there, in your opinion? >> i'm not sure. that is a great president for someone to ask the president. what do you have? a situation where the president is saying we'll

how's this for convenience? one-stop shopping for entitlements. montana unveiling a new website where residents can apply for obamacare, food stamps and housing assistance all in one convenient location. but there's already been some glitches, and you won't find any job boards on this site. is it doing more harm than good? keeping people hooked on government aid? here to weigh in is cohost of "the independence" on
3:18 am
the fox business network matt welch. what do you think about this? no job sites, no employment. how do i get a job? it is about more assistance. >> i think this is great. it rips the face off of what government is, hooter up a quarter or a fifth of all g.d.p. on a federal level and spit it out back at people. let's let everyone know what government really is which is give us a check. >> at least they're transparent. on the one hand you have efficiencies. i'm all for efficiencies in government making sure you go to one site and not wasting time and money. >> the problem here is the obamacare element of it and that has not really worked. we have dumped more than $6 billion into i.t. that really hasn't largely worked on obamacare websites. this is actually normal for all government. there's a shocking percentage of government
3:19 am
i.t. projects that never actually get off the ground. it's more than 40%. >> it's a huge number. i remember sitting on a committee. we dealt with that issue the amazing waste in the federal government and yet they are continually asking people we need more money. how about fixing the problem, saving some money. the obamacare website was $2.4 billion and rising. each individual state had a mess with their i.t. it's a great issue. like you, i want to make sure we have the ability to go find a job. >> there is something good about the concept of the one-stop shop. the government does spend hundreds of millions of dollars even on the state level of trying to let its citizens know what benefits they can accrue. if you can make it customer-friendly, which government always is not, then that is a good thing. but the problem is a lot of these things are way too complex, like obamacare. it is not really about just sending you the check. it is about going through this process, going through that process and it is very difficult. >> great concept.

i can't particular sea -- in the adriatic sea went to ten. this is because the fire alarm never went off. passenger say the flames got so hot they melted their shoes. crying passengers brace for the worst when the landing gear doesn't work. listen to this. >> stay in the break position until the aircraft stops completely. >> the virgin flight heading to vegas circled in the air for four hours dumping fuel before making a safe landing in london. the picture shows the plane's top wheels stuck. technical glitch is to blame for that. >> he is the most decorated sniper in military history but now the american sniper is being compared to the d.c. sniper who terrorized a community and killed ten innocent people. the movie which portrays chris kyle opened this weekend and in a series of tweets liberal writer max blumenthal launched an
3:25 am
attack saying this quote, i haven't seen american sniper but correct me if i'm wrong an occupier mows down faceless iraqis. john lee malvo, another sniper would not be glorified on prime time. the author of the book joins us with reaction. scott, thank you for joining us on "fox & friends." what was your reaction when you saw blumenthal's tweets about chris kyle? >> my reaction was not only was the comment completely absurd, it shows a complete ignorance of the job we're asking our united states military to do in defense of this country. >> that's right. when you hear him being -- he's comparing chris kyle who is following orders, doing what we have called him to do with the nation comparing him to someone who viciously murdered americans here, it was just a complete assault. in your opinion, you knew chris kyle well.
3:26 am
you know his heart. how would he react to really the assault on his fellow service members in uniform doing exactly what he did? because that's what blumenthal is asserting here. >> i think chris would really react in a way that would be to have the people of the united states to ask the question really what are we asking our united states military to do in defense of this country? the united states military members such as chris kyle are not the ones that choose the wars that we go to fight. they are asked to go and do the fighting. and it's the politicians that ask our men and women of our military to go. and it is certainly not the people that are in uniform that have given their lives or have put their lives on the line to defend this country. i think any comparison like, that blumenthal made here is completely absurd and unfair to the men and women of our services who are out there really drawing the line between us and the people that would like to destroy this country. >> it seems quite evil to do that particularly
3:27 am
because there are a lot of people who came out in defense of blumenthal, some saying his crass statements were not personal, they were just political. but when you look at when he tweeted this, right on christmas. chris would be devastated to know someone is attacking him but not only that his family listens to this on christmas day his tweets coming across. what a lack of courage to do this in the minds of many. a personal attack not just a political attack on chris kyle and his family. >> i know that this individual did not know chris kyle. chris kyle was a defender of our troops. his work as a sniper was to do overwatch of marines and other military members and to protect them and to bring them back here to the united states. and chris was always and should be known as one who saved lives of the united states military and brought them back to this country. and to lose sight of that the way blumenthal has done
3:28 am
here is completely absurd. and i would encourage mr. blumenthal to go over and bring his point directly to isis right now in iraq and encourage them and to talk directly with them and see how he is responded to by those that would take and kill every american citizen if they had the opportunity to do so. we ask our men and women of our troops to go and fight for us and for him to respond in this fashion and to compare him to some mass murderer in the united states is completely out of line. completely absurd and ignorant of what these people do to defend us. >> well said and a challenge by scott mcewen. thank you for being with us this morning. let us know what you think about that. we'll be reading e-mails and tweets already flooding in. a third child dead from the flu and new word that this year's flu vaccine might not be working. a live report on that. guys, forget about those favorite morning

3:34 am
could enter the bloodstream and travel to the brain and thalt body may also overproduce white blood cells to help fight the virus but that actually causes respiratory complications especially in children. the biggest problem is that this year's vaccine is mismatched against the h3n-2 strain. what does that mean? it does not mean that you should not get vaccinated. >> even when the strain and the vaccine is not a perfect match, it still gives protection. >> some protection better than no protection. the vaccine is still 50% effective. the c.d.c. warning the flu could cross over to epidemic levels but doctors say take every precaution necessary before the season really ramps up which will be next month. >> if you are fatigued or tired, your body, your immune system is a little bit suppressed and you're more likely to get sick because of the fatigue. >> other tips, was

3:46 am
government's responsibility to protect citizens against toxic chemicals and that is what trans fats are. >> the f.d.a. has already done something. when evidence began to emerge that trans fats were risky, the f.d.a. required labels on products with trans fats. food companies have voluntarily cut back on the amount of trans fat. if you look at the data, consumption of trans fats has fallen pretty dramatically as a response to those labels. it is a little unclear now why they're adding this ban on top of a policy that was already effective. >> what it is saying to people you're just not responsible. if you think you can't eat one of these every day and you know you're going to have some other kind of health issues if you're eating doughnuts that's the main part of your diet you're probably going to have issues. what the government is
3:47 am
saying is you're not responsible for your own health so we're going to step in and be responsible for you. is that what you're saying? >> there is a tendency to look at this kind of policy and say what's the big deal, a ban on sprinkles on doughnuts. i think the way you want to look at that is if the government can involve itself in such small minutia decisions of our daily lives as to whether we want to eat sprinkles or not, that is not much respect for the citizens' choices. and if they're willing to ban those small decisions what kind of respect will they give citizens in the larger decisions in life, about where to work or live or some of the things that really matter. >> here are items that have small amount of trans fats. crackers frozen pizza popcorn, canned frosting making cookies once a year for the holidays, that will be banned. i remember when i worked at good day philadelphia in philadelphia and the city was going through a big ban on trans fats but the
3:48 am
bakers came in front of the judges and said we can't make our food without trans fat. the texture, it will fall apart. taste the difference. they handed different pastries to the judges and the judges agreed this tastes like garbage without trans fats. people don't eat these every day and they made an exception. >> i have two kids of my own. i mentioned this policy to them last night. i take them occasionally for doughnuts. i said what would you think if sprinkles were banned? one said that is dumb. the other one said that is a small amount. how can that be harmful? i think when we've reached the point where even our children recognize the lunacy of a policy, i think that is when we've gone too far. >> maybe we should have kids running government. jason, great to see you this morning. happy new year to you. enjoy some sprinkles while

and our first reaction was here we go again attacking the bible, attacking people of faith, trying to divide people. why can't they just let people believe in what they believe and move on with things? >> christianity doesn't have anything to fear from an honest look at the facts. when you have someone in the media give a balanced view and talk about the great truths of the faith and an honest and balanced and journalistic way that's fair game. but that's not what we're dealing with here. from the opening shot, this is an open attack upon christianity. >> let's go through some of the details here. some of the faults you find. it says we don't have a bible. we have translation after translation. is that correct? >> it's not correct. of course our english translations are translations. but when the author of that article says all we have is a translation of a translation of a translation, that's not even close to being true. we have very accurate translations available to us now based upon very credible texts. that's not the problem.
3:55 am
we have a very credible access to translations of the scripture. >> it was put together with a political agenda. with respect it looks like it's first time out of the gate since folding has its own political agenda. what do you think? >> it's placing itself on the far left with this kind of open attack. and by their claim how the bible came together, it's just an ignorance of the facts. there is openly false claims made in that article and that's why we just need an honest consideration about the scripture because god's word is going to prove itself to be true. >> did they consult with any balanced theologians? >> evidently not. the only theologian sourced in the article is someone ho is really opposed christian who is openly hostile to christian. when the news magazines used to do things like this, they used to have both voices people representing historic christianity and people respecting theological liberalism. not here. this wasn't balanced in any sense. this was just an open attack from beginning to end.
3:56 am
>> here is how you get back at it. don't buy the magazine and tell people not to buy it and actually get out the bible and start reading it and pray whenever you want to pray. >> great message there. >> absolutely. one of the most interesting things about this, it shows the bible still matters. it matters so much that someone would choose this kind of venue to attack it in such an open way and those who are christians xmgño#r0 way. it is indeed the word of god. >> i'd love to hear some viewer comments. let us know what you think. >> always. we will be standing by. thank you for joining us. >> great to be with you. thank you. >> great suggestion there. we will read your e-mails, facebook posts and tweets coming up. now major developments in the search for a missing air asia flight 8501. this as we get word of another incident involving another plane from the exact airline. a live report on that straight ahead for you

"fox & friends" hour two starts right now. >> you're watching "fox & friends." that's a great way to begin your
4:01 am
day. >> we thank you for joining us. the 7:00 a.m. hour. we have the senator and clayton on the curvy couch. first breaking news. just in to "fox & friends" right now, air asia confirming bodies and debris found in the java sea are indeed from the missing flight 8501. the plane vanishing enroute from indonesia to singapore on sunday with 162 people on board. >> the president of indonesia expected to address the most recent findings in just a few minutes. >> let's get to david piper live in thailand with the very latest on this. good morning, david. >> reporter: good morning to you. indonesian navy says it's recovered 40 bodies now from the ocean and it expects to collect many more in the coming hours, even though it's dark. also at this time, the air asia has said that it has confirmed that objects sighted in the sea do come from the missing plane. these pictures just released
4:02 am
seem to show parts of the aircraft. one appears to be an airplane exit door. it's reported to be red and white. the same colors of the missing air asia airbus. another picture seems to show an inflatable escape slide and another, a life jacket. one indonesian official is quoted as saying that the bodies recovered didn't have life jackets on. it's also now being reported a search plane has sighted a shadow in the water, which could be the remains of the plane. divers are now at that location. the air and sea search has been focusing on an area about halfway into the flight of the air asia indonesian jet flying to singapore sunday morning local time when it lost contact with indonesian air traffic control. ships are steaming towards the crash site and the u.s. navy ship has now joined the recovery effort. it's equipped with sonar devices that can scan under water. many families waiting for news
4:03 am
broke down in tears when reports came that wreckage had been sighted. and another air asia jet has been in trouble today. it's gone off the runway in the philippines. back to you guys. >> more bad news there. david piper live for us. thanks. >> that's right. our hearts are aching for the families. 162 people, 18 of them children. a tragic year for the region there when you think about malaysian flight, 382 people lost from malaysian flights 17, 298 passengers and crew there. hearts aching for sure. we will bring you the very latest as we come to it. we're going to turn to leah gabriel. a lot happening. >> good morning. terrifying moments with midair when passengers on board a u.s. airways plane sees this outside their window.

flames shooting out from one of the engines. it happened moments after takeoff from philadelphia airport. the jet immediately made an emergency landing and no one was hurt. a deadly strain of seasonal flu is being blamed for several deaths in minnesota ohio and pennsylvania. the h 3 n 2 attacks the bloodstream and the brain, even in otherwise healthy children. at least two dozen states reporting high flu activity and the vaccine isn't as effective against this year's strain. new overnight congressman michael grim stepping down one week after admit to go tax evasion. in a statement, he says quote, after much thought and prayer, i made the difficult decision to step down from congress effective january 5. this is a turn around from last week when he claimed he had no plans to leave his post representing new york's 13th district. under a plea agreement, he could face up to three years in

federal prison. sentencing is june 8. and the international word of the year isn't actually a word at all. the heart emoticon is taking the top place. the heart is used billions of times per day around the world. it's the first time a pictureograph has been named word of the year. thousands of internet social media, print and electronic media post were analyzed to come up with these rankings. and if you like the heart, then you guys and all of you guys can send me one at at lea at fox news. >> i might send you two. >> talk about emotion, i'm not kind of emogy will represent mayor de blasio when he's set to meet with nypd union leaders. this is a day after he got boo'd and heckle at a nypd graduating.
4:06 am
>> it got weird for a few moments when he was mentioning the things that police in this city are not responsible for. we've got crime, we've got all these issues and that's when someone yelled out. take a listen. >> be honest about the realities of our society. you will confront all the problems that plague our society, problems that you didn't create. you'll confront mental illness illegal guns. >> that summit will have the police unions coming together. apparently with the focus on fostering a constructive and responsible dialogue between de blasio and administration and the unions and with mr. lynch at the head of that. >> it's clear he heard the comments. what i found different is that it wasn't the graduating class. they were very respectful. they were there really to be honored. you had someone in the crowd
4:07 am
heckled. got a little response. he's meeting with union officials is a very, very important first step and hopefully towards the healing process. >> no press allowed. >> it needs to be done behind closed doors. you got to get this done. you have to move forward. what i did yesterday, my wife kind of laughed at me. every police officer i saw, i went up and said thank you. not everybody thinks you're bad. >> right. >> i bet they appreciated it. >> yeah, they did. it was a special look in their eyes. >> reilly says this is bound to happen for the mayor especially when you align yourself with the likes of al sharpton. take a listen. >> this is a mayor that has decided to side, make common cause with al sharpton, a man who made a name for himself, made himself rich and famous bashing police officers. and when you do that and then become mayor of new york city or as mayor of new york city, you have a big problem. my concern here is that this
4:08 am
false narrative being pushed by everyone from obama to holder, to mayor de blasio, that we have an epidemic on our hands of cops shooting young black men is not only false, it is harmful to the law-abiding residents of these poor communities. >> we'll be watching that meeting today with the union leaders and we'll bring that to you. meanwhile, have you seen what max blumenthal said? so many of you were weighing in, it's crazy how many of you are fired up. he's a left wing blogger, he had fired up and said american sniper chris kyle, the movie now made about him he says this, i haven't seen "american sniper," but correct me if i am wrong an occupier mows down faceless iraqis, but the real victim is his anguished soul. the whole film's appeal seems to derive from the latent -- another mass murdering suspect would not be glorified on prime
4:09 am
time. >> equating one of our greatest heros to a mass murderer who went on a shooting, killing spree and killed ten innocent people. how dare he? and on christmas day when you think about chris kyle's family his young children having to face this assault even on our military. senator, you just retired with the rank of colonel. when you hear this kind of attack on chris kyle it really is also an attack on those who serve our nation so well each and every day and are willing to do the hard work for the rest of us. >> we're not occupiers. we're lib rarities, we're a country for good. we go in and help countries when they're in distress especially with philanthropic issues. he owes our heros that served, got hurt maimed and/or died for their service to our country. it's abhorrent what he said. i would hold him accountable. i'd tell people to let him know their feelings 'cause you can't tolerate this type of blatant distortion of the facts. we are not occupiers. >> co-author of "american sniper" and a dear friend of chris kyle and his family, this
4:10 am
is what he had to say. >> chris kyle was a defender of our troops and his work as a sniper was to do overwatch of marines and other military members and to protect them and to bring them back here to the united states. chris was always and should be known as one who saved lives of the united states military and brought them back to this country. and to lose sight of that the way blumenthal has done here is completely absurd. we ask our men and women of our troops to go and fight for us and for him to respond in this fashion and to compare him to some mass murderer in the united states is completely out of line, completely absurd, and ignorant of what these people do to defend us. >> yeah. comparing him to somebody who hides in the trunk of a car and kills people while they're at the gas station. many of you writing in on facebook this morning. debbie says chris kyle is a hero. blumenthal is a joke. no comparison needed. >> and ted e-mailed us this, thank god we have people like chris kyle willing to risk
4:11 am
their lives to protect this country. >> chuck on face -- >> this man has saved so many lives. he is a real hero. a true hero. >> your comments have been pouring in. we will continue to share them. keep them coming. >> go to our facebook page. coming up, new help for wanna be terrorists on how to sneak bombs past airport security. why can't the united states stop this sort of propaganda? pete hegseth is here next. there he i hallway. >> and the outrage at the airport after a major airline abandons a dog on the runway. it was raining. how cruel. ♪ ♪

hot off the presses from al-qaeda, brand-new instructions for wanna be terrorists on how to blow up high value targets here in the united states. it's all inside the newest issue inspire, a english language magazine known for detailed instructions on how to build home made bombs. the article targets several commercial airlines with advice on how to by pass airport security. this is the same magazine that
4:16 am
helped boston bombers build their bombs out of pressure cookers. can the united states stop this sort of propaganda before it's too late? pete hegseth, a fox news contributor and ceo of concerned veterans for america joins me now. good to see you. >> good to see you. >> thanks for your service. we had a nice chat offline about this. i know what you've done obviously for our veterans, very instrumental in the most recent legislation passed. first of all congratulations on that. >> thank you. >> how do we stop this type of propaganda, the effort to basically kill innocent men, women and children in our country and really throughout the world? >> i think you have to stay on the offensive. you can't allow them space to plot and plan. the difficult thing about inspire is it's a pdf document which most you can put together offline and they do so in yemen, and other places. then you just upload it once and it kind of lives on al gore's interweb everywhere. there is very little you can do to stop it at its core. we've killed al-awlaki, a lot of folks affiliated with it.
4:17 am
but without pressing the offensive and making sure folks, editor in chief of this magazine knows he might die if he publishes another edition there is very little you can do to prevent something like this from going on. >> let me read a quote from it. what america didn't expect, that this recipe is going to be in the reach of all muslims around the world. some will be pleased and pass on the message. isn't that great? while others will be inspired and most importantly make the bomb, just what we need. more bomb makers. how does this affect lone wolves and others who are inspired to follow the instruction? >> that's precisely their target, these lone wolves here. the tsarnaev brothers downloaded this pdf right here in the heart -- >> unified boston. the red sox won the world series. >> and i was there when that happened. stole him from the minnesota twins. but it's something they use because they know they're limited in their ability to plot 9-11-style attack where is they infiltrate with mass numbers of people. they want one or two to learn how to put together a
4:18 am
rudimentary bomb this is also very much propaganda. they're pointing at american airlines and delta airlines saying hey, be scared when you get on your flight. >> try to disrupt change the way we do our jobs and i am continuing to, in my own personal life continuing to drive on, not let terrorism change the way that i and others do our business. it's disturbing here, you have a balance between patriot act tsa, the rights, first amendment, balancing that with the right and the ability to stay alive and live our lives free from terrorism free from assaults like this. what do you suggest? >> you don't want censorship in america, but at the same time we want our companies our web sites able to block this kind of garbage. and when i google to look up inspire magazine yesterday, most of it was u.s. sort of jihaddist sites that are studying jihad, hosting it. saying, this is how they're trying to do what they do. this is hard to find in its organic form, but if someone is
4:19 am
looking for trouble, they're going to be able to find it. that's why discredit this poisonous ideology, kill their leaders where we can find them. >> amen. thanks for your service thanks for what you're doing for our vets. coming up, student athletes now allowed to wear these. i can't breathe t-shirts y. the school is forced to change its mind. elisabeth, know any good knock knock jokes? >> i do. knock, knock. >> who is there? >> butter. >> butter who? >> i butter not tell you because it might spoil the punch line for my next guest. you're not going to want to miss it. ♪ ♪ huh, fifteen minutes could save you fifteen percent or more on car insurance. yeah, everybody knows that. well, did you know that playing cards with kenny rogers gets old pretty fast? ♪ you got to know when to hold'em. ♪ ♪ know when to fold 'em. ♪

she is the typical youngest. a lot of fun and lot of drama. >> i was reading research said children laugh 250 times a day. adults, only six times a day. which i think, because of your book, we laugh a lot more than that in our house. >> it's great. >> what's the secret to really nailing it when it comes to delivery on a joke? i'm pretty bad. >> well, i think for me what i love about these books is that the kid becomes the superstar. i'm not the superstar. when they open that book, it becomes a whole family thing. just hearing your kid laugh and tell these jokes and respond to them is a lot of fun for the whole family. >> i'm going to read through them here. we don't leave our home without these if we if on a family trip. they're always there. when you say the kids feel like a super hero you're absolutely right. it's easy for them to read as soon as they can and they love sharing. i so appreciate the good work you've done. here are some samples. knock knock. >> who is there?

helicopters are headed this. a deadly risk for anybody celebrating with cocktails. that's a lot of people this new year. gallons of fake alcohol full of antifreeze spotted on the shelves and particularly in great britain. the potentially deadly mixture is disguised with brand labels, but it can be noticed because the word bottled is spelled wrong. look out for that. police point to gangs taking advantage of the increased demand for alcohol during the holidays. both the boys and girls basketball teams at a high school in california now allowed to wear i can't breathe t-shirts protesting police. the school officials originally did not want the athletes wearing them at upcoming tournament for security reasons. but they were forced to reverse their ban following threats of a lawsuit. and a hunting dream comes true. all thanks to this letter and to one big mix-up. nine-year-old alex collins wrote to a county sheriff's office asking to take part in a hunting program because he had no one to teach him.
4:33 am
what he didn't realize is he wrote to a town hundreds of miles away in north carolina. >> i hated it because he was in pennsylvania and not able to hunt. i talked to the sheriff up there and said if we can work it out let's get him down here and i'll be glad to take him hunting with me. >> they did. both counties paid for the air fare to give alex what he calls the best christmas present ever. those are your headlines. >> thank you so much. now we're talking about gifts outside. is it going to be cold or warm? maria molina has the latest on the weather gift for you. >> good morning. it is going to be cold across most of the country over the next several days. it's been mild for most. over the last few weeks, relatively mild season. look at the current temperatures, that arctic air is back in places like minneapolis and also in denver. current temperatures out there are below zero. you factor in a little breeze and this is what it currently feels like. currently feels like 16 below
4:34 am
zero in denver. 20 below in minneapolis. in some of the areas, when you're talking 20 degrees or even colder below zero, then you're looking at the risk for hypothermia. keep that in mind. really bundle up. over the next several morning, we'll continue to see that cold air expanding eastward and southward. in places like new york city, by wednesday morning, you'll see those temperatures in the 20s. 20s as well for places like louisville raleigh, north carolina, and even in little rock arkansas by early thursday morning. so again that cold air continuing to expand across the country, helping usher in that new year. otherwise we have a winter storm across parts of the rockies and the plains. a another of advisories in place. you'll look at a mixture in some areas, especially lower elevations. freezing rain mixing in with some snow and higher elevations will be looking at that snow coming down quite heavily across parts of the mountains. i want to mention if you live across northeast maybe you notice last night a meteor
4:35 am
flying through. there were many, many reports. more than 300 reports of a sighting. take a look at the screen just to the right. that's where that meteor should be popping up, right there. incredible stuff. over 300 reports of this meteor flying across the sky last night. this particular video was shot on interstate 287 near route 10 at about 6:30 p.m. on monday. this happened in morris town, new jersey. very close to here in new york city. i wish we were able to see it here in the city. probably wouldn't be able to because of the city lights. very cool stuff. send us your video if you were able to capture that last night across parts of the northeast. >> great idea. >> and put on the hats and gloves. >> that's right. thank you. and now this, from attacks on sarah palin's family to slanted coverage of the attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi, it's been a banner year for bias in the mainstream media, to say the least. >> each year as we know, media

research center ranks the liberal media's worst offenders. our next guest is one of the 40 judges on their panel. >> she was on the panel of judges. she's a senior contributor with the daily signal and joins us now. thanks for being here. >> up first, nothing to see here. a word from cnn president talking benghazi with the "new york times". >> we're not going to be shamed into it by others who have political beliefs that want to try to have temper tantrums to shame other news organizations into covering something. if it's of real news value we'll cover it. >> why did that make the list? >> i mean, as we well know, in media buy y it's not just what people say it's what news organizations choose to cover or not to cover. i think the benghazi story is one that were it not for fox news, frankly would have gotten no coverage in the main stream media. what zucker said he's behind
4:37 am
cnn, calling a lot of the shots. that was true at msnbc. of all the quotes we looked at, we had so many of them, of reporters and producers talk being how benghazi was not a story. if they spent half that time looking into it they might have found a little more there than they think is there. >> it's interesting you said that because i remember when i was a senator, we held hearings. then secretary clinton testifying before our committee, very evasive. if they had come forward and said we made some mistakes, this is what we learned and this is what we'll do to address it. to think it wasn't an issue when we lost an ambassador and people died was unbelievable. >> right. >> you're right. >> the next award is the spinning the facts award. the winner and recipient is scott pelley who claimed obamacare wasn't killing jobs. take a listen. >> we got a report today about obamacare that was both
4:38 am
surprising and widely misunderstood. the nonpartisan congressional budget office said about 2 million americans are likely to pass up full-time jobs because of the president's health insurance program. those aren't necessarily jobs being lost. there are also workers choosing to work less. >> what do you think about that comment? >> i mean, how he read that with a straight face, i honestly don't get. look we all know what happened here was obamacare said basically if you work a certain number of hours a week, over 30 something hours you may end up losing your health care coverage. employers aren't going to have to provide it. so businesses and a lot of other companies said we're going to reduce worker hours and many workers said, wait. i've got to choose between getting health care and having a full-time job. so let me go with the health care and sit at home. that's the way it should have been reported. but scott pelley and cbs is not the only one guilty of getting this story the wrong way. >> wait until the new year

4:40 am
this was classless and not only did it win the classless award, this particular quote won the quote of the year award out of everything that we looked at for being really the worst show of media bias that was out there. >> just leaves a bad taste in everybody's mouth even watching that. the next one is the twisted tweets award and the recipient is politico's chief political columnist roger simon, mocking the governor when he said rick perry sending 1,000 national guard troops to the border to shoot small children. could make good headlines in russia. your thoughts? >> yeah. i'm actually from texas. i went to the border. what governor perry was doing was trying to secure the border which president obama would not do. this is not about shooting anybody. it's about securing the border. that was a really very much so in poor taste. >> he did that because the president and his team were not doing it. securing the border is something very important. >> he took that so seriously. genevieve, we thank you for joining us. >> thank you all. happy new year.

5:05 am
in a statement, he says quote after much thought and prayer, i have made the very difficult decision to step down from congress effective january 5. this is a turn around from last week when grimm claimed he had no plans to leave his post representing new york's 13th district. under a plea agreement, grimm could face up to three years in federal prison and sentencing is set for june 8. and a military couple forced to relocate her dream wedding because the president wanted to hit the lynx. army captains natalie and edward invited president obama to their hawaii wedding which was at military golf course and they did it 'cause they knew he was in the area. what they didn't know is that they would be kicked off the course so he could play golf. the couple was told to move their ceremony just 24 hours before the wedding. the white house says it had no idea that the president's golf game would force the we had to go relocate. course officials made the decision on their own. president obama did surprise the newlyweds with a personal phone call to apologize and their

5:07 am
we're talk being having a pen dropped on the veto. >> i like your puns. >> so does that mean did he not get the message? 'cause after the election, he said i hear you. i hear you. he apparently has not heard the american people 'cause it was a resounding election. it was a major shift in american politics. >> what happened, because there was talk briefly about unifying issues getting people to work together. when you hear this, have you been there your -- having been there yourself. when you hear this, it seems more like a move to divide. >> this from the president when i was there three years, the president was detached, didn't reach out to his own party let alone the republican party. creates a dysfunction. that's part of the problem. they don't communicate. they don't socialize. they don't like each other. they don't talk to each other. i'm hopeful with the new members, they'll have a big difference. >> what about the road map? charles krauthammer was spot on in that he was saying look republicans need to start passing bills. get them through and force the president's hand. force him to start using that ball point pen to veto because it shows the american people republicans are getting things done.

'cause we're still in trouble. don't forget, we have obamacare coming in after the election. the full implementation. more and more businesses saying okay, what are our tax going to be? what's happening with obamacare? what are energy costs going to be? going to continue to see that down slide. >> how frustrating. you see harry reid's desk, so much there piling up. someone saying near malpractice at this point. >> listen, he is one of the most vindictive guys there. i think he'll go down as one of the worst majority leaders in our country. i'm hopeful mitch mcconnell gets it. he will hopefully unite the party. i think that's important, to unite the republican party and then try to work with good democrats who care about putting our country's interest first. it's time. >> you're fired up about this. our viewers.
5:09 am
but i think our facebook page exploded this morning when they saw this newsweek cover. the it's back. >> don't buy it. >> we thought it was gone and it's back. here t their new cover called the bible. when they say this, they fall on their knees, referring to christians. worshiping at the base of granite monuments to the ten commandments while demanding prayer in school. they appeal to god to save america from their political opponents, mostly democrats. they gather in football stadiums by the thousands to pray for the country's salvation. they are god's frauds, cafeteria christian. >> kind of jumping on the band wagon of attack of christianity. knowing full well that the bible is the number one selling book across the globe over the years of all time. so perhaps sort of instigating a little fire from christians there in defense. we spoke with president of the southern baptist theological seminary. this person that newsweek in the past and other industries have gone to to seek his wisdom and actually get a balanced evaluation of the bible
5:10 am
especially when putting forth theological articles such as this. this is what he had to say. >> from the opening shot this is an open attack upon christianity. it's just an ignorance of the facts. there is an openly false claim made in that article. when the news magazine used to do things like this, they used to have both voices. they would have people representing historic christianity and people representing theological liberalism. not here. this wasn't balanced in any sense. this was just an open attack, from beginning to end. one of the most interesting things about this is it shows the bible still matters. it matters so much that someone would choose this kind of venue to attack it in such an open way and those who christians know it is indeed the word of god. >> don't buy the magazine. i'm going to go buy the bible and reread it. and here we go dividing people again. dividing people over religion. allowing them to practice their faith is obviously one of the most powerful guarantees in our constitution. i find that hypocritical.
5:11 am
>> and this is how they sell magazines. newsweek, when they're trying to resurrect themselves, they come back and come back and putting all these salacious covers -- >> resurrect. >> they don't get anywhere. >> amen to that. ray e-mailed this, what a weak attempt at journalism can be called jumpism at that. don't newsweek wish they sold as many copies as the bible sells every year? >> and jenny says why is it politically correct to attack christianity and the bible when if the same attacks occurred against other religions heads would roll? >> and on twitter newsweek wants to be relevant in the worst way. with this cover, that's exactly how they're going about it, in the way. >> go to our facebook page and you can weigh in on that. >> as you're fired up for sure. we all saw what happened when president obama tried to reset relations with russia. yeah, didn't go so well. is that what he's trying to play tough guy now? is it why he's playing tough goo

5:37 am
just over the weekend, we had a 37-year-old woman die. but when you take a look, the elderly that are dying from it and the children there have been three in tennessee three in minnesota, three in texas and lots of elderly folks as well. the reason you mentioned about the vaccine, apparently what we understand is this h 3 n 2 strain this type a it's resistant to the vaccine. that's because three or four months ago when they were compounding and manufacturing this particular vaccine, it has changed genetically, the strain. so the type a strain, it's kind of only 50% effective. that's the point. now, they do say the experts and the doctors here say that most people who do die from the flu, they do not have any sort of vaccination. so they say you need to get out there, even though it's 50% effective, get that flu shot. back to you guys in the studio. >> thank you. >> would do you it?

5:43 am
where conservatives seemed to be the main target. joining us with his review list is the editor and chief of campus reform caleb. great to see you again. >> good morning. >> so what was the criteria for putting this list together? >> the leadership institute campus reform has had a busy year compiling all the instances of liberal ridiculousness on campus, whether it's bias and abuse, professors going crazy in these undercover videos of their rants, or textbooks that are absolutely not factual. so we compile a list of the craziest stories. >> let's get to number one here on your list. ronald reagan. tell us about this one. what happened? >> university of south carolina in a social work class not a political science class was teaching these kids that ronald reagan was a sexist who never appointed women to any positions of policy making or positions of power, that he wanted them to be in primarily domestic functions, which is not true at all. ronald reagan appointed sandra
5:44 am
day o'conner not to the food court, but to the supreme court. he appointed over 1400 women to top policy making positions. and it was a pretty surprising instance of bias in a textbook for students who really honestly aren't politically minded, don't know any better. >> unbelievable. elizabeth dole on that list. next on your list california. what happened in california? a lot of crazy stories from there. >> yeah. all the time. you're seeing the california state university system took the intervarsity fellowship a christian ministry and because of antidiscrimination laws told -- they took their campus ministry and said, you're derecognized. we no longer recognize you. why? because the intervarsity had the audacity to believe their leaders should have the same faith. they don't want an atheist
5:45 am
running their groups. but they derecognized them because of antidiscrimination policies, which flies in the face of what this country stands for. >> here is something else that flies in the face. unfolded on a university campus, threatening students for passing out the constitution to other students. >> yes. the threatening students at southern oregon university who were passing out the constitution. these students were a little concerned walking past these kids with these constitutions. they were intimidated. but then the administrators came out and forced them to move, or intimidated them to move because they weren't in -- 1% of the campus designated free speech zones. they've been ruled to be unconstitutional by several federal courts, but one in six universities still have free speech zones. >> what was the update on this story? they were told, these free speech zones basically illegals. so they're holding out the
5:46 am
constitution which would enable people to have free speech in the first place and being told they can't do it? >> like i said, they didn't actually reprimand the students. i think a lot of that is due to the coverage of the national media because the university realized how crazy it is to do that to students. here is the bigger problem clayton, when you take look at a professor who gets up in front of his class and bashes conservatives, or a textbook that's claiming ronald reagan is sexist, the university will defend that because they claim that's free speech that that is academic freedom. they will go to bat for those professors. but when a student goes out on campus and tries to pass out the constitution, they threaten disciplinary action. and that is double minded policies that the universities have and they need to get rid of them and allow for free speech and academic freedom. >> always great to see you. i have a prediction we'll have you back next year i have a feeling we'll have more hidden camera videos. there will be a lot more that you will be reporting next year. >> got to get the lapel pin
