7:08 am
yet to come. a christmas gift that will put sony in, quote, the worst state. why can't they find the source of these attacks to stop them? >> good morning, paula, this is such an unfortunate incident for sony. the source of these attacks really could come from a number of different capabilities, including insider capability, insider information. advanced attacks that are looking at how sony's networks are set up. it's really coming down to a level of destructive malware capability. that quite honestly is holding sony hostage, as far as their network is concerned right now. >> and these hackers could be presently embedded in their network as we speak. as for american companies, that might think they're safe from these sort of attacks, but what's the lesson here and what companies will be at risk? >> we have seen similar capability recently announced with sands casino around this destructive malware, almost like a digital hand grenade ready to go off. the real concern around american
7:09 am
companies, whether it's media or national critical infrastructure is ultimately that these are persisting inside our networks and we weren't able to detect them at this point in time. so massive investments. people, process and advanced breach detection capability is really what american companies and really the u.s. government, is looking at deploying at this point in time, to thwart these attacks at this time. >> so, sony just bracing for the next shoe to drop. this is far from on over. jd, thank you. a white-knuckle emergency landing for a passenger plane heading for baltimore, this happened after a bird strike. that left a hole in the wing and set the engine on fire. gloria rivera is at the airport with the latest. gloria, good morning to you. >> good morning, dan. passengers say it was the first few minutes that were the most unsettling. a loud bang, the plane shaking. one man telling me those around him were asking, are we going to make it? look at this image snapped by a terrified passenger. flames shooting from the plane's engine. >> i had never been more sure on
7:10 am
a flight that i was going to die. >> reporter: those on board say the bird strike left a hole in one of the wings. the pilot took this cool-headed action, announcing they would try for an emergency landing. >> the pilot very quickly came on the air and announced that we have had a bird strike. >> he knew exactly what it was? >> he knew exactly immediately what it was. >> reporter: through it all, the pilot's calm voice keeping their nerves in check until they were on the ground. the plane landed safely. no injuries to the 142 passengers and 5 crew on board. >> the pilot was very good and incredibly calm and professional. >> reporter: bird strikes are up according to faa. from 1,851 in 1990 to a record, 11,315 in 2013. a sixfold increase. in 2010, the miracle on the hudson, a jet losing both engines in a bird strike. passengers commended the pilot for his calm action. everyone survived.
7:11 am
for southwest 3118, a similar escape from what could have been catastrophe. >> when we finally landed everyone applauded the captain, multiple times. and yeah, i just sort of looked him in the eye, shook his hand and said thank you. >> reporter: southwest airlines said only that the jetliner was taken from here at baltimore's airport in for inspection. no further details on an investigation and how much damage was done to the plane. again, the passengers saying the pilot and crew were the essence of calm under pressure. hats off to them. dan. >> gloria, thank you. we move now to big news in the 2016 race for the white house. what could be the firmest indication yet that jeb bush, brother of the former president, may soon jump in the race. in an exclusive interview with wplg, our abc station in miami, bush said he will decide soon and that in the mean time he's putting out an e-book on his time as florida governor. >> i'm going to make up my mind in short order. as part of that, as i thought,
7:12 am
if i'm capable of running and serving i'd look back at my previous campaigns and the eight years that i got to serve as governor, it reminded me that in spite of what appears to be the case here in this current environment in washington, you can do big things, if you set the stage in a campaign, and then move forward. >> okay, so, let's bring in abc's martha raddatz who's in washington this morning, hosting "this week." martha, is it fair to say that this sounds like a guy who's pretty sure he's going to run? >> it certainly does sound that way, dan. there is more, besides that ebook he's releasing a trove of e-mails, about 250,000 of them from his time as governor. why you might say? he says it's transparency. but avid 2016 watchers say he's trying to beat the opposition researchers. also his family seems to be pretty supportive in all of this, as you know. so it does seem he's leaning in the direction of running. >> very quickly given that he's a centrist is he going to have a problem winning the primaries
7:13 am
where there are a lot of very conservative voters? >> that's really the trickiest part of all this. one on his adviser's minds and his own, he doesn't want to alienate the conservative base but doesn't want to stray too far from his more centrist views. he said the republican nominee might have be willing to lose the primary to win the general. without violating your principles. pretty tough to do. >> tricky balance, martha, thank you. martha has a big show this morning. she'll be interviewing the former cia director michael hayden about that so-called enhanced interrogation techniques used after 9/11. that's coming up on "this week" later this morning right here on abc. we're tracking a lot of other developing stories. we turn it over to ron. >> good morning to you, paula and dan. sara, hi. good morning, everyone. tens of thousands of people flooded the streets all across the country in protests against what they call police violence aimed at black men and boys. abc's bazi kanani has more. [ chanting ]
7:14 am
>> reporter: tens of thousands taking to the streets for a day of protesting of police brutality. and racial discrimination. >> i hope that this is catalyst. people keep marching and keep talking. >> reporter: from berkeley, to new york, and to boston, where police arrested 23 people trying to block traffic. but the main march heading right to the u.s. capitol. this is easily the largest of these protests we have seen in recent weeks and the protesters out here say this is the most important one. >> if they don't see this and make a change, i don't know what we got to do. >> reporter: the mother of michael brown joining other grieving families now calling for new laws. and special prosecutors for cases like theirs. >> we have to come here and plead they fix this broken justice system. >> reporter: protesters vowing to keep this movement moving forward. for "good morning america," bazi kanani, abc news, washington. the senate working overtime,

7:16 am
that martinez suffers from bipolar disorder. and bill cosby is breaking his silence, sort of, about the scandal involving a growing list of women who accuse him of drugging and sexually assaulting them. when reached by telephone from a writer from "the new york post," cosby declined to address those allegations, instead took aim at the african-american media. saying, quote, i only expect the black media to uphold the standards of excellence in journalism, and when you do that you have to go with a neutral mind. when asked how his wife is holding up, he said simply, love and the strength of womanhood. and finally, a question, that we probably all pondered at one time or another, what happens when you combine an ambitious wedding proposal and a construction crane? >> never thought of that one. >> think about it, watch. >> sorry, funny. >> a man in holland rented a crane so he could be lowered to his beloved to serenade her and ask for her hand in marriage. that went badly awry. the crane crashed. it gets worse, the crane, trying to fix that, it crashes again, a second time.
7:17 am
while crews are trying to secure it. some good news, no one was injured. after all that, she said no? just kidding. >> oh, my goodness. >> she said yes. >> that might be a sign. >> he still might not be the one for you. >> it's gone wildly viral. and by the way, i'm releasing a trove of e-mails, and an e-book later today but i'm not running for president. in 2016 at least. >> setting the record state. >> i'm closing that out. >> you would have my vote if you ran. >> i would totally vote for you. >> we're on your team. we're going to move on now to a slightly more successful on-camera gambit. this one does not involve a proposal. a college kid hitting the streets with this wacky portable mistletoe. has lots of surprised, women who are actually puckering up for him. and sara is here with more on this wildly viral kissing video. >> i love this guy, honestly, he has the best sense of humor. typically, i live by the don't kiss and tell mantra. when you're hitting the streets to lock lips with strangers in the name of holiday fun.
7:18 am
you better tell all and get video doing it. call him kiss crinkle. a chicago college student blake rigby defying the naughty list. kissing all of santa's girls and boys with a self-made mistletoe contraption popping right out of his back pack. waiting patiently for holiday magic to strike. >> good luck! >> reporter: and spreading holiday cheer one smooch at a time. >> oh, thank you. >> i'm the oldest one you're going to get today, honey. >> reporter: this gizmo working so well he even gets volunteers. >> can i kiss you? >> yes. >> i'm going to get all sort of cozy. >> of course. >> okay. >> reporter: the 21-year-old says he's a positive prankster, he's not in it for the free lip-locking. but for the seasonal smiles that follow the christmas gift. >> we love these positive videos. we love to do things that make other people really happy. >> reporter: but mr. mistletoe isn't wasting this opportunity to find his right missus.
7:19 am
hoping the right kiss will one day lead to a merry makeup. >> hopefully, along the way, you meet people who are interesting and someone who's single. >> this is awkward. >> yes, this is. >> merry christmas. to me. to me. >> i don't know why they think it was such an original idea that this guy did this. because, i mean, clearly people are really eager to smack some lips. >> ron. >> i'll get the back of the studio -- >> can i get a kiss? >> kiss! before it gets completely out of hand, let's get it out to california again and the weather, hey, rob, what's going on? >> take that off. >> wow, my goodness. is this a family show or what? settle down in there. okay, mwah right to you, sara haines. nice work there. i hope kriss kringle has been tested for all sorts of

7:25 am
two, eliquis had less major bleeding than warfarin. and three, unlike warfarin, there's no routine blood testing. don't stop taking eliquis unless your doctor tells you to, as stopping increases your risk of having a stroke. eliquis can cause serious and in rare cases fatal bleeding. don't take eliquis if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. while taking eliquis, you may bruise more easily and it may take longer than usual for any bleeding to stop. seek immediate medical care for sudden signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising. eliquis may increase your bleeding risk if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures. those three important reasons are why eliquis is a better find for me. ask your doctor today if eliquis is right for you.
