tv Studio B With Shepard Smith FOX News January 25, 2012 3:00pm-4:00pm EST
unless breaking news changes everything. on "studio b." but, first from fox at 3:00 in new york, the president delivered the "state of the union" address we now know an elite team of american commandos was wrapping up a daring mission in which that team rescued two hostages from an armed gang of kidnappers half a world away. the former, here are the former how damages, an american woman and a danish man. in october they were working in somalia and they were abducted. on monday, the president authorized the mission that would set the hostages free. according to american officials a team of operations troops last night parachuted into a village from an aircraft, not helicopters, and they traveled to their target by foot, killed the need kidnappers, took the hostages and boarded american helicopters which were told to
business them away to a camp home to the combined joint task force in the horn africa. we are told the u.s. officials informed the president as hostages were safe, hours before he addressed the nation and the joint session of congress. and although the operation was not technically over, the president crated the defense secretary panetta on the way into the chamber. at the time, we don't know what the exchange meant. >> good job, tonight. good job tonight. >> the president called the american girl's father after the speech and said she was safe and "on her way home." what else do we know of the rescue mission? >> the u.s. military sources say there was a firefight but it was over in a matter of seconds. in fact, as the seems approached the camp on foot, the kidnappers were told were sleeping, and
they woke from their sleep, fired, but they were killed, all nine, in a matter of seconds, the same seal team six involved in the ben roethlisberger raid -- in the osama bin laden raid but not the same forces, 50 u.s. forms were involved in this raid. >>shepard: why, jennifer, did the military go in yesterday? >> well, they went in yesterday just hows before the "state of the union" address. the shot was briefed on the situation at 9:00 p.m. on monday night we are told by his national security advisor. that is when he gave the go order. from what we are told from multiple forces it was the deteriorating health of the american hostage that caused them to take the decision to go when they did. a prior inspection we are toll got worse and she feared she faced kidney failure. >> they said it was the time, the opportunity, her health was
failing and they concluded they should go at this time and the president gave the go. >> president was told at 6:43 p.m. that the two hostages were safe, before he entered the house chamber, and, as he stepped out of the house chamber after giving the "state of the union" address, that is when he called jessica's father in ohio, and he spoke with him from the capitol. >> thank you, jennifer. a war of words has begun today. between the republican presidential candidate, newt gingrich, and the democratic house speaker nancy pelosi. after she seemed to imply, and, did, in fact, she has some serious dirt open newt gingrich. both are former house speakers. listen to what she said on cnn about a possible newt gingrich presidency. >> let me just say this: that will never happen. >> why are you so sure? >> this is something i know and
if the republicans choose to nominate him, that is their progressive. >>shepard: well, no specifics, just a big tease, and, today, here on fox, speaker newt gingrich hit back saying he has no idea what she is talking about. >> if she knows something she ought to say something and if she doesn't she ought to quit saying it. this is blown. ii don't think any republican is threatened by her. i would rather have her threat were me. >> chief rival mitt romney is taking the opportunity to call for the release of all records from his "ethics" investigation. mitt romney says that whatever congresswoman pelosi may or may not know could hurt republicans in the general election. and now more on this on capitol hill. what a riddle. mitt romney is trying to use this to his advantage. >> in question about that. he has taken a more aggressive approach with newt gingrich
after losing to him on monday night. you may recall, he challenged his leadership as speaker, saying that he had to resign in disgrace, so, no vice, this morning, he pounced. listen. >> 88 percent of the republicans of the house of representatives voted to represent manned their own speaker. first time in american left that has happened. we need to understand why. and those records need to be released because if nancy pelosi knows those things she will hand them to president obama office campaign if newt gingrich were either nominee. >> just the threat from leader pelosi has created a bit of drama on the republican side of the race. >>shepard: really, this is not the first time that speaker pelosi has said something like this about dirt on newt gingrich. >> that is right, in december she did an interview and she said i have a lot of information about him and we will have a talk about him at some point, fair phrasing, but that is the gist, and she was on the house ethics committee in the mid-1990's when he was speaker and that committee investigated
him as speaker. well, today, her spokesman was asked about what she meant by what she knows, and here is what he said: "leader pelosi made a reference to the extensive amount of information that is in the public record including the comprehensive committee report with which the public may not be fully aware." so, he is suggests that the public, people who are now paying attention to the election, may not know of some of the history when he was speaker in the mid-1990's. >>shepard: thank you, mime, on capitol hill, and now, juan williams, fox news political analysts writes for "new york times" and "washington post" and the "wall street journal." any clue what he is talking about? >>juan: what she is talking about? well, two things he is talking about. she was on this ethic committee that he just referred to. that closed business in 1997 and when they closed business, they issued a report and they issued
all the exhibits that came from the investigation as to whether or not newt gingrich had violated ethics standards in handling of a tax-exempt organization teaching down in georgia, mostly. but they didn't release all the investigative documents. so, the question is, should those documents be released? and what is in them? from what nancy pelosi is suggesting there is some dirt there, but, the woman who was the head of the ethics committee, a republican, says it would be unusual to make them public and to meet the dream to have a lot of dirt spill out before the florida primary. >>shepard: experience says and you have mentioned this when dirt spills in washington sometimes it is kept close to the vest. the result of the investigation was what most in walk thought was the very end final end of newt gingrich's political career. >>juan: that is right. he paid $300,000 because they said he misled the committee,
prolonged the investigation. what we are hearing from nancy pelosi is frustration of a woman who said she spent a year with four other people reviewing everything to do with newt gingrich and felt that newt gingrich had steered them away from the facts before they finally came out and said, well, here is what we know, no specific violation but he will be sanctioned for misleading us and making this investigation go on and on. >>shepard: on the state of the union last night a lot of the commentary has been that the president's message last night was something akin to divisive; that the wealthy should pay some certain percentage of their income that's more like what the people who are middle class pay seems to be divisive. what are they talking about? >>guest: well, this is the empire strikes back in a sense. this is playing into the class
warfare argument, that is all obama has to argument, the critique from the right. but the fact if you look at the numbers right now it does appeal to a sense in the american mind, the american body politic that it is harder and hardtory have upward mobility if you are in the middle class, so obama is playing to something politically quite cagey. he understands that there is, had are points to be scored with american voters by talking about making sure their kids are in school and making sure the rip, the bankers, wall street, are playing on the same level playing field. >>shepard: juan williams in washington, good to see you, thank you. >> the cruise company that owns the capsized ship blames the captain for the disaster and now the captain blames the cruise company. we have all the information on this and the race for the g.o.p. nomination getting more interesting every day. regardless of what nancy pelosi does or does not know,
regardless of the bluster, newt gingrich is tied with mitt romney in florida. the same newt gingrich whose political career was over, remember? who was out in disgrace. who paid $300,000. he is leading. or tied. in florida. and just in: a serious weather alert in the south. word of tornado warnings. we have breaking news on that ahead. [ male announcer ] drinking a smoothie with no vegetable nutrition?
>>shepard: tornado warnings near the border of texas and louisiana and it looks bad. how bad? >> we have confirmed reports of tornadoes this morning across southeast texas watching this line very carefully, and a tornado watch has just been issued parts of louisiana, to mississippi until 9:00 p.m. local time, so we think the potential for more addition weather continues throughout the afternoon and the evening, and
here are the warnings we are getting now, in parts of louisiana, right open the border of texas and louisiana, including for the polk. we will bring you the latest in weather details during "studio b," ship. >>shepard: the cruise ship captain who said he tripped into a lifeboat said he was just following orders before the disaster struck. according to secretly recorded consciouses that have now leaked on to the interpret, the captain claims that the bosses ordered him to take the ship close to shore. listen. >> they were breaking my balls saying, go there, go there. the rock was there but it did not she on the instrument i had and i went there to satisfy the manager, go there, go this. >> cruise company is blaming the captain for the disaster and now he is under house arrest and faces charges of manslaughter and abandoning ship and sevenners have found 16 body, 17 people are still officially
listed as "missing." >> chief fox correspondent jonathan hunt is here. rescue workers are searching. >>jonathan: the bottom line is the last time anybody was found alive was ten days ago, and that was a crew member discovered alive on board the ship. those involved in the investigation are now saying that the dives literally have gone door-to-door to every single cabin on board the cruiseliner, and they have found though further signs of life. >> there have been somebody they would have shouted for help and we would have found them. we have to take into account we rescued three people alive during the operation. so, for sure, if there was still body there, we would not be in a state to make himself known. >>jonathan: the head of the search team said find someone alive on the ship now belongs to "in the realms of miracles." >>shepard: and an american
couple was on board no one heard from and no one knows where they are. >>jonathan: the couple, 69 and 70, respectively, from st. paul, minnesota, and they is not been heard from and they were on board the costa concordia and a couple of their children are in italy hoping to find them, and they issued a statement on a website they set up, and it says, in part "we find comfort in the fact that every day we see first hand how hard the italians continue to work to find mom and dad. we hope the ongoing effort continues to find more passengers so their families did be reunited with their loved ones. thank you for your continued prayers and support." four children, 16 grandchild. waiting for word. >>shepard: horrible. thank you, jonathan, chatting on the stories throughout the hour on foxnews.com/shep on "on the hunt." google has been collecting information about all of us users for years. and now the bosses say they plan
to start "combining" that information. a threat to privacy? we will get interest that. plus, what really happened to demi after pair -- sarah medics showed autopsy at her house after word, now, of help for her. perial can convert your long-term payout into a lump sum of cash today. is the pain reliever orthopedic doctors recommend most for arthritis pain,
google services. and they will combine this information in when police, if you have a google account. company officials say the new policy is simpler, easier to understand, and will help them deliver better search results. among other things. but privacy advocates argue this is in way to opt out of this sharing unless you close your account. and now, google is still collecting this information? >> i detect sarcasm on your part. it is unbelievable because google here is saying they are not only going to take the information and they have been monitoring for some time but give you a from -- a profile, everything you watch on youtube and everything you search and as you pointed out they will make it easier for you, say, you look for jaguar on the search engine they will know
if it is the cat or the car and they are under stiff pressure from facebook and apple and they are looking to get money however they can. >> this is getting attention on hill hi. >> we have heard from some lawmakers and a democrat from massachusetts, and they said the harmful impacts could rain from inconvenient, in other words, spoiling a surprise party, to the truly harmful, popping up a calendar reminder about an evening job interview while you are still at work, so, the key here is no opt out it goes into something that federal regulators will look into. >>shepard: and now our legal experts are here as they always are at this time of day. wait a minute. they are going to collect everything we do? they are going to know everything we search? they will put it in one place? then what are they going to do
with it? then what are they going to do? who will they sell it to? how dare they, one might ask. collect all of that stuff about us when they have a monopoly. >>arthur: that is the question. do they have a monopoly on it? if they do, they are in one thing. if they don't they are somewhere else. why think they do. this is yahoo or bing and other search engines that i am a huge google guy if this goes into effect, you pick or your, but --. >>shepard: don't disrespect the other search engines but have you used them? do you know why? because they suck. >>arthur: google is the best. i understand. but if millions people stop going to the bing and msn and go to the other places you watch them improve in their quality of product. the other ones. because i won't use we them.
>>shepard: they already have it. what they have not done as far as we know is come -- combine it in one place. >>randy: just what i need, have my wife or someone go on to my google account, and see, randy, gee, we notice that you spent three hours on the victoria secret website, well ... how interesting. no, no, no, no, this is not capital embut an -- capitalism but invasion of privacy activity worst. mind your own darned business not at the expense of capitalism but at expense of leave me alone. >>shepard: maybe i want that enter interactive experience if i am searching for a jaguar car, maybe i want that sort of expense but if i don't, shouldn't i be able to say, i don't want that, i want to on the out, i will take my chances.
>>jonathan: it is the way of the world and that is what will happen. i am not sure we can fight it. >>arthur: you know you threw it out but that is the key, an antitrust issue, it is a monopoly issue. if there is nowhere else to town then they would have major, major battles in the court but because there are options, you don't want that experience, don't use google, use something else. youtube aspect, that is interesting because i don't know of an at testify to youtube that is in its league. that's ... that is something that would fall into the monopoly. >>shepard: so you opt out and you don't go this anymore. >>arthur: hopefully through capital imthe -- capitalism the other guys will improve. >>shepard: president obama kicking a tour off of five key swing states and this, the
republicans say, that the president is worried about being in office. a live report ahead from the president. and congresswoman gabrielle giffords makes the emotional farewell to congress a year after someone shot her pointblank in the head. what a day on capitol hill. that plus the bottom of the hour and the top of the news, next, on "studio b" today. i knew it was gng to be a success. the invention was so simple that i knew i needed to prott it. my name is chris schutte and i got my patent, trademark and llc on legalzoom.

the president today taking the state of the union message on the road. as presidents do every time, kicking off a three-day tour of five key swing states. the president spoke at a conveyer belt manufacturers meeting in iowa and is head to phoenix and will stop in nevada and colorado before finishing the tour in michigan. in iowa today the president said the economy is getting stronger but taking a jab at congress. >> people in washington seem to have collective amnesia. they seem to have forgot were how we got into this mess. they want to go back to the same policies that got us into it, the same policies that have stacked the deck against middle-class americans for years. >>shepard: the chairman of the republican national committee blasted the president's trip as "taxpayer funded campaign
stops." and now the news from capped -- chandler and the republicans are calling him "campaigner in chief." we have collective amnesia? >>reporter: well, the white house laughs off the charge. they have heard this before. they say what the president is doing is what previous presidents have done, which is sell the agenda he laid out last night, in the state of the union. there are four pillars. first is all about creating manufacturing jobs. but, face it, the president does realize these are battleground states mentioned earlier in iowa, feeling nostalgic coming to a place that propelled him to victory and he took a shot at mitt romney in iowa talking about the auto bailout. >> look what happened in our auto industry. on the day i took office, it was
on the verge of collapse. some even said we should let it die. i've got the clips in case ... because i remember. they were beating the heck out of me. why are you doing this and intervening? >> president talking about clips, he didn't use mitt romney's name butten knows he was referring to the fact that mitt romney opposed the auto bailout. they want to talk about creating manufacturing jobs in iowa later today here where they are making chips creating thousands of jobs right here at home. the president wants to talk about policies that will encourage that. >>shepard: he spoke last night at the "state of the union" address about working with the republicans. is there something new that republicans my want to do that? or no? >>reporter: look, they have been at each other's throats for a long time. as the president talked about
working together last night there were other parts of that speech where he made clear that if republicans will not work with him he will go his own way on executive actions and we were talking about the president charges republicans with collective amnesia and speaker boehner today fired back at the president saying he has a little amnesia. take a listen. >> last night we heard from the president. and let's understand, i get along with the president, file, i have a good relationship with him. he is a likable person. the american people like him. the fights we have are not about personality. it is about the policies that we are dealing with. and the president acted last night like it was his first year in office. somehow, thinking that over the last these years, maybe he was backpacking around europe. >>reporter: look, when you hear rhetoric like that it is unlikely the agenda the president laid out will be passed especially in an election year. i talked to a top democrat a few
moments ago who said in a year like this you will be lucky to rename post offices on capitol hill let alone pass major tax reform. >>shepard: thank you, ed, from arizona. there could be room for another candidate not republican race for president. a new rasmussen survey fine as third of likely voters say it would be good for the g.o.p. as it stands there are four candidates but it appears to an two man race between mitt romney and former speaker newt gingrich. speaker newt gingrich we has a 4-point lead over governor romney less than a week before the primary, a winner take all state and 50 delegates are up for grabs more than iowa, new hampshire, and south carolina put together. carl is live in cocoa, florida, on the coast, where the
candidates are courting the hispanics which could be the key. >>carl: in south florida they are influential, and in miami they make up 70 percent of registered republicans so it is a big deal. today, there was a forum giving the presidents an opportunity to court latino voters, and newt gingrich used the opportunity to go after mitt romney. criticizing him on a host of issues and suggesting that mom's use -- that his term of immigration reform shows he is out of town. >> is to live in a world of swiss bank accounts and automatic $20 million a year income with in work to have some fantasy this far from reality. now, for romney to believe that somebody's grandmother is going to be so cut off that she is going to self deport? this verges next is an obama
level fantasy. certainly he shows no concern for the humanity of people who are already here. >>shepard: today, and yesterday, u.s. and florida senator rubio has denounced an ad by newt gingrich accusing romney of being antiimmigrant and romney said that is not true and newt gingrich has taken the ad down in large measure responding to rubio's assertion that it was both inflammatory and inaccurate. romney says it is inappropriate. >>shepard: how is romney responding to all of this? >>carl: well, very aggressively speaking here, as well, and as to the claim he is antiimmigrant, and the claim that he is somehow unique suggesting the self-deportation be part of the nation's antiillegal immigration policy he points out that newt gingrich himself has spoken out in favor of self deportation. here is the denunciation. >> i am not antiimmigrant. i am pro immigrant, i like
immigration it has been an extraordinary source of strength in this country. i recognize that it is very tempting to come to an ought conference and pander to the audience and to say what you hope people will want to hear. but frankly that is unbecoming of a presidential candidate and that was a mistake on his part. >>carl: in november one of the the top spoom for newt gingrich said most under his plan would self deport and newt gingrich has made similar comments and romney believes he as newt gingrich in a corner for accuse him of being antiimmigrant opposed to antiillegal immigrant and being against something when he was for it in the case of self deportation. >>shepard: thank you, carl, and now, my guest has worked on three presidential campaign including the campaign of george bush in 2000 and 2004 and a
spokesman for the speaker boehner and serves as communications director for dick armey and partner in communications firm, the hispanic voters. who has the edge here? newt or met? >>guest: it will be a big fight for dade county but all across florida you have a latino community but they not just going to vote on immigration, they are going to vote on the housing crisis, because ground zero for the housing crisis is florida. and, they are going to fight over who has a better message for opportunity in getting ahead in this country, and i don't thing it is clear, this florida fight, you know, for a long time romney was shadow boxing while all of the other candidates got flirted with. and, now, this is the fight between two heavyweights and i think florida is going to be just a down to the wire primary. >>shepard: i thought in
florida, south florida, miami dade and palm beaches vote like the north and north florida, all the way into the am pit of the state, and down, that votes like the southern part of the united states and the corridor from tampa to orlando to daytona is where it is decided. >>guest: you know your florida politics. i-4 has dominant evangelical tint and the west coast there is a lot of midwesterns, so, in a lot of ways this is a real part of the national campaign. newt can compete. he is not at easy to knock out as romney thought. but it will be so expensive that both of the candidates could be out of breath by the time it is over. >>shepard: you could spend tens of millions in florida when
you add up the market size, miami, and tampa huge, and orlando is big, and then you have jacksonville and the panhandle and the palm beaches is another market. just to cover those television stations costs tens of millions. >>reporter: you have to talk of this in terms of a marathon. maybe the temptation is to try to deliver a knock out punch in florida but it is not going to happen. they are going to have to go to a bunch of other contests after a brief respite and they will have to refill the campaigns because this will be expensive. >>shepard: expensive and fascinating to watch. january 31st, almost here, terry great to see you on the hill today. and demi moore is getting help after being rushed to the hospital. help for what? lot going on in her life and the question now about whether she has substance problem.

called "exhaustion and health issues." she was rushed to a los angeles hospital last evening, and tmz reports it was because of a substance abuse problem. demi moore and her husband split up late last year after six years of marriage and reports said that he was cheating on her. and trace is in los angeles this afternoon, i guess this was after 11:00 and i understand that somebody in the house made a call to 911. >>trace: we know it came from the beverly hopes of demi moore and the call was made by an unnamed woman and when paramedics arrived they say demi moore was treated for some medical condition but they will not say what and 30 minutes later transported to a hospital. her publicist issued this statement saying and i quote, "because of the stress in her life right now, she has chosen to seek professional assistance to treat her exhaustion and improve her overall health," she looks forward to getting well and grateful for the support of her family and friends."
you mentioned that tmz reports she is being treated for substance abuse and we should know back in the early 80's she also had substance abuse problem during the time she was filming the movie "st. elmo's fire." >>shepard: any health issues? >>trace: you can tell from the pictures of her over the past couple of weeks she has lost a great deal of week since she announced she was divorcing back if november of last year. she also recently, without explanation, pulled out of a movie based on the life of the porn store, and she gave this kind of bizarre quote to happenner's magazine saying i would say what scares me is that i'm going to ultimately find out at the end of my life that i'm really not lovable, that i'm not worthy of being loved, and there is something fundamentally wrong with me," experts believe she could be suffering some sort of depression and we should know

>>shepard: the biggest solar storms in a decade hit the earth. so far, we are not seeing evidence of the doomsday prediction which were not being predicted but were possible. scientists said the blast of radiation from the sun could knock out grids and cause problems with radio signals, and could disrupt g.p.s. signals.
it never happens it seems i don't no why we listen. they treated some folks in europe and asia to an active display of northern lights. that is cool. our science editor is over here, and the senator -- sun gives off radiation and they say it will do something weird but it doesn't. >>guest: we should care, we have been saying it gets worse. >>shepard: if the sun turns that color i would be interested. >>guest: we are getting closer to the time we will see more of this activity and this time around the blast was so strong from the sun a couple of planes had to be rerouted. let me say i talked to the f.a.a. and everything was safe, we talk about solar radiation, but they said that to avoid communication lapse planes had to be rerouted and they were flying over the arctic poll where the air is thinner.
this is the first time we have seen this where things like, that happened to you and i affected by activity out some space, that is important. >>shepard: i like this northern lights thing. this is clearly not the real color of the sun, and it wasn't green a minute ago, but is this stuff real? is that the real color? >>guest: no, that is real. that is real. >>shepard: beautiful. what causes this? radiation interacting in some way with ... >>guest: a charge of blast of particles from the sun and interacts with the magnetic field from the plan it earth and it causes this really, really coof effect. >>shepard: it happens sometimes when we have these blasts and you can get it in the united states, more in the northern latitude than here where we are. >>shepard: i thought that was the aliens. >>guest: it could be part of the aliens. >>shepard: so we have solar
storm and alien invasion but they appear to be friendly. they didn't do anything bad just floated around. >>guest: if this is something dangerous, i am personally a little scared. >>shepard: they will call somebody in advance. john boehner will let us know. after crying. the barefoot bandit, apologized. wait until you here what he is saying now, mr. barefoot. he is next. @=h ♪ ooh baby, looks like you need a little help there ♪
