7:00 am
i just caught sight of this. something's going on on that flat section. we'll follow this. >> thanks for joining us. >> see you later. good morning. too little too late? the backlash grows this morning after that shocking security footage shows nfl star ray rice knocking out his fiance in an elevator. the ravens cut him, the nfl suspends him indefinitely. but the question this morning, did the league turn a blind eye to the video? making his case. president obama summons congressional leaders to the white house today to outline his new strategy for defeating isis. as he gets ready to lay out his plan to the american people. severe weather threat. deadly flooding in the southwest with even more downpours on the way. while in the midwest, tens of millions brace for violent thunderstorms and possible tornadoes. al is tracking it all. and the next big thing?
7:01 am
after months of anticipation, apple finally set to unveil its newest gadgets at a special event. why fans of the tech giant could have three reasons to be excited "today" tuesday, september 9th, 2014. >> and good morning. welcome to "today" on a tuesday morning. i'm matt lauer, along with al roker, natalie morales and months of negotiation have come to fruition. and brian williams has gotten out of bed early to join us as part of the homecoming week here on "today." >> savannah -- i heard her name. i couldn't wait. thank you for having me. >> good to see you! >> it's great to be back. >> not your normal hour. we should mention, you're back because brian is going to mention a few times during the day he's playing hurt today. >> i have the thing -- the cold.
7:02 am
the summer into fall cold. no physical ailments other than that. >> you didn't mention that when you kissed me earlier. >> and meredith tried to warn me against coming today because she was roughed up so badly. >> i know. we're going to have fun. we've got a lot ta talk about. >> thank you. >> how about this news we're talking about. the top story this morning, fresh outrage over the nfl's handling of that domestic violence case involving the baltimore ravens' ray rice. this after that new surveillance video of the incident in that elevator has surfaced. >> in a moment, we will get reaction from a long-time co-host of this show, who is currently host of "real sports" on hbo, bryant gumbel. but first nbc's josh elliott here with us on the latest fallout on this, josh, good morning. >> good morning to all of you. ray rice will not step out on to an nfl field this season and may never again. he was cut by his team, the baltimore ravens and suspended by the league indefinitely yesterday. and this morning the nfl is now under fire for how it's handled this and other cases of domestic violence.
7:03 am
monday, tmz sports released new video that it says shows ray rice and then fiance janay palmer in an elevator in an atlantic city hotel casino. an argument escalates and then the video shows rice striking palmer with a single punch. her body falling and her head hitting an elevator railing. right after the february incident, video surfaced of what followed. rice dragging an unconscious palmer from the elevator. rice was indicted for aggravated assault in march, one day before he and palmer were married. rice eventually received probation and was ordered to undergo anger management by the court. in may, he held a news conference with his wife. >> sometimes in life, you will fail. you know. but i won't call myself a failure. failure is not getting knocked down. it's not getting up. >> the nfl suspended him for just two games. and rice spoke again in july. >> one thing that i wanted to do today was, you know, apologize to my wife. >> many fans were outraged. an outcry over the two-game
7:04 am
suspension led nfl commissioner roger goodlell to admit last month he didn't get it right. the new video went public. monday, an nfl spokesman said the league requested any and all information about the incident from police, but that video was not made available to us and no one in our office has seen it until today. mike florio of nbc sports. >> i believe the nfl didn't have the tape. but it's unbelievable that the nfl didn't get the tape. >> reporter: a day after a season-opening loss at home, raf ravens officials say they first saw the tape on monday. >> when someone that you care about does wrong, you know, and is faced with the consequences of doing wrong and rightfully so, it is tough. it is hurtful. my hope is that they can make it work. >> very unfortunate. all you can do is reflect on what happened and learn from it. >> reporter: many had strong reactions when they learned of the tape. >> he should be terminated.
7:05 am
i think that any man that hits a woman should have to suffer for the consequences. >> i think it's about time he's held accountable for what he's done. >> reporter: and vice president biden weighed in, in his exclusive interview with tamron hall. >> the ravens did the right thing. firing him immediately. i mean, you can argue they should have done it sooner. they didn't want to. whatever the reason is, it's happening. >> president obama also weighed in, in a statement released by the white house that reads in part, and i quote, hitting a woman is not something a real man does. and it went on to say, quote, stopping domestic violence is something that's bigger than football and all of us have a responsibility to put a stop to it. we reached out to the prosecutor's office in atlanta county where the incident happened. they declined to comment on the video or on rice's case. rice's agent also had no comment here. >> and josh, we're sitting here talking about this among ourselves this morning. i feel like everything has been said in 24 hours. but it bears repeating. it makes you sick to your stomach.
7:06 am
>> and makes you feel very sorry that janay, his wife -- she married him, but then they have a child together. and she has to live with that knowledge and that video. >> josh elliott, thanks. tough story to begin with this morning. matt, over to you. >> brian, thanks very much. bryant gumbel is the host of "real sports" on hbo and former co-host here on "today." good morning. good to see you. yesterday the nfl released a statement saying we did not see this tape, this videotape taken from inside the elevator until monday. you take them at their word? >> i guess we have to. it's hard to believe. you also have to wonder, what did roger goodle think, that she fainted? we had her being dragged out of the elevator. i think at best, at best, the only thing you can say is they were willfully ignorant. this tape they had to know existed. in the discovery process, rice's lawyer had to have the tape. so it looks as if the best thing you can say for the nfl in making this judgment was it was don't ask, don't tell.
7:07 am
they didn't ask for the tape. they didn't want to see it. >> i'm going to go back to the first point you made. the league, like all of us, had seen the tape from outside the elevator. >> right. >> of janay being dragged out of the elevator. do you really need to see the punch? >> yes, that's what i'm saying. >> to make the right call on the penalty in this case? >> she didn't faint and need to be dragged out. plus of which there are a number of people who suggested -- chris carter tweeted yesterday he saw this tape months ago. peter king, the definitive voice of the nfl for "sports illustrated" basically said his sources told him they had seen the tape way back in july. >> is there another possible scenario that when ray rice and janay palmer went in to meet with league officials two weeks before the suspension was happeneded down, they told a story to the commissioner not consistent with that video? >> i think the league would like us to believe that. and i think we'll only know that if and when ray rice decides to speak. >> now we're seeing the two-week penalty, the new policy goes to six weeks for a domestic violence offense. now they suspend ray rice indefinitely.
7:08 am
does the nfl now get domestic violence, or is the nfl now trying to save face? >> let me turn and put it to you this way. right now the carolina panthers have a guy named greg hardy who is continuing to play even though he's facing domestic violence charges, been arrested for it. ray mcdonald is continuing to play for the san francisco 49ers, even though he too has domestic violence going on. i mean look, the nfl, what the nfl does best is public relations and manage its image. so right now they're going to go into full mode on demonizing ray rice with justification. but i don't see any evidence that they have turned the corner on this and really gotten the message, no. >> bryant gumbel, good to see you. >> always. >> let's go over to brian. >> matt, bryant, thanks. we turn a corner to national security. the obama administration's plan to degrade the international terror organization known as isis. president meets today with congressional leaders at the white house. he will lay out his strategy to the american people in an address to the nation tomorrow. our national correspondent, peter alexander, has the latest this morning from the white house.
7:09 am
peter, good morning. >> brian, good morning to you. white house aides here say as the president prepares to reveal details of his plan to fight the growing threat of isis, his speech for tomorrow remains a work in progress. but most importantly he will begin laying out his case for a wider military campaign today for congressional leaders when they come to the white house. as the white house finalizes its plan to beat back isis, aides insist president obama will go wherever is necessary, citing the pursuit of al qaeda and the death of osama bin laden as evidence. the president wants it to be an international effort, today dispatching secretary of state to meet with key arab allies. jordan and saudi arabia. >> i will travel to the middle east to continue to build the broadest possible coalition of partners around the globe to confront, degrade and ultimately defeat ice ice isil. >> as the president told chuck todd on "meet the press," he
7:10 am
won't send in u.s. ground troops. >> the notion that the united states should be putting boots on the ground i think would be a profound mistake. >> with another round of deadly air strikes in iraq monday, u.s. officials hailed iraq's formation of a unity government as a major milestone. the outstanding question, will the president extend those strikes into syria? with options still under consideration, senior administration officials tell nbc news likely targets inside syria could include isis leadership, training sites and weapons supplies. ahead of the president's sitdown with congressional leaders this afternoon, democrats and republicans have largely urged the white house to intensify its fight. >> the head of the isis snake is not in iraq. the head is in syria. and so if you want to kill the snake, you've got to go and cut off his head. >> reporter: other lawmakers want more details from the president. >> it is incumbent on him to come to congress and lay out his strategy so that we and the
7:11 am
american people are clear on it. >> tomorrow's speech comes at a critical time in obama's presidency with his public approval numbers near record lows. the new polls show that americans overwhelmingly view isis as a real threat to the u.s. and what's really a big shift over a year ago when the u.s. considered air strikes against the assad regime in syria, americans largely support air strikes now in both iraq and syria. brian and matt? >> all right. peter alexander on the north lawn this morning. thanks. at least two people have died in record flooding in arizona after heavy rains from the remnants of hurricane norbert pushed through that state. al roker is looking at that and some other concerns. al? >> that's right. we've got severe weather to talk about today. we've got a lot going on. let's get do it, show you exactly what's happening. this video out of the southwest is pretty amazing. all this moisture streaming up from the monsoonal moisture coming out of the gulf. las vegas -- i mean, just amazing pictures. people getting caught, high water rescues. phoenix, arizona, upwards of 4 inches to 6 inches of rain, again.
7:12 am
a lot of high-water rescues. that's going to continue again today for a little while. you can see all this moisture starting to stream up. dry air off the coast, but moisture coming in, and so we look for more heavy rain again today. we've got flash flood watches, flash flood warnings in effect. rainfall amounts generally about an inch or so. and the heaviest activity will start to make its way into western colorado, 2 to 3 inches of rain. in fact, as you look -- as we get into the midwest, around iowa, up to 5 or 8 inches of rain possible out of some strong systems that are going to be pushing in today into tonight and on into tomorrow morning. and we've also got heavy rain and heavy rain yesterday. big flooding in virginia yesterday with upwards of 10 inches of rain there. >> all right, al. thanks very much. news now that another american infected with the ebola virus is heading home. natalie has got that. >> that's right. it's the fourth american ebola patient now arriving in the united states from africa this
7:13 am
morning. nbc's gabe gutierrez is at emery university hospital in atlanta. it's the same hospital that treated two other ebola patients last month. gabe, good morning. >> reporter: natalie, good morning. that latest ebola patient is now on their way to emery university hospital. last hour they landed in atlanta and was loaded into a special ambulance to be transported here. these are live pictures. emery university hospital is not confirming much, citing patient confidentiality. it will say one of its doctors tested positive for ebola and sierra low yoen and there were plans to treat that person. emery dr. kent brantly and nancy writebol were successfully treated last month. third ebola patient is now recovering at a hospital in nebraska. we are expecting the latest patient to arrive in emery within minutes. >> gabe gutierrez in atlanta, thank you.
7:14 am

7:15 am
the coaster, set to reopen in 2015. no word yet on what started the fire. and we have some incredible video this morning caught by a dashboard camera from the frightening moments when a tornado swept through a russian city. you can see a driver pull out of garage and onto the road. and when they start to pull away, watch as the power of the storm rips through that neighborhood. this happened a couple weeks ago. but later when the driver pulled back into the driveway, that's when you can see all the devastation there. that same garage completely blown away. nature's fury there. in full force. guys. >> brian always tells me when you're backing out of a garage, check for a tornado before you get into the street. >> exactly. you never know when it's going to hit. >> with the remote in my hand, in case i need to close it again. thank you for pointing that out on behalf of all of us. >> natalie, thanks very much. upside, neighbors had a garage sale the next day. >> there you go. >> real nice. >> way to make light of the moment. >> oh, mr. roker. >> anyway. let's show you what we've got going on today.
7:16 am
we do have the risk of severe weather in the mid section of the country into the northern plains today on into tonight. along the west coast, again, a gorgeous day with temperatures low 70s. showers and thunderstorms along the southeastern atlantic coast into the mid atlantic coast. we're going to get to your local forecast coming up in the next 30 seconds. o altuzarra for target available september 14th. . 7:16. good tuesday morning. meteorologist christina lowren.
7:17 am
look at all the 50s, only one spot in the 60s. even with the cooler start, high pressure takes control of our forecast for today. we'll clear you out earlier. as a result your temps are going to jump from 5 to 8 degrees from yesterday's highs. low 80s in the south bay. san francisco, you'll hit about 67 degrees and then we bring up that heat as we head into the mid section. >> al, thanks. it is estimated that 1 in 68 children in the united states now has some form of autism spectrum disorder. and a new study released just today in the journal of autism and developmental disorders reveals more about the importance of early intervention and at what age to start treating symptoms of autism. a lot to explain here. dr. nancy snyderman is our chief medical editor. nancy, good morning. let's start with how small this study was we're talking about. but the lessons learned. >> well, it's very small. only seven children. but it sure is exciting. this comes from uc-davis where
7:18 am
they really started early intervention. and the teacher was the parent. they really wanted to engage children, so they started taking babies who maybe weren't making eye contact, who were hyper fixated on one subject, but perhaps not having human interaction. and the investigators taught parents little tricks and tools to help these kids move along and guess what they found. six out of seven children by the time they reached their second year of age not only grew out of those autism symptoms, but, in fact, at a time when a lot of children with autism would have language delay, these kids not only caught up, but they had good language. so an extraordinary study showing how plastic the baby brain is, and frankly, the role of early intervention in any child who might be suspected of having autism. >> on the subject of intervention, what's the parental take-away from all of
7:19 am
this? >> the parental take-away is not to be ashamed if you see some of the early signs. and it's easy to think, oh, no, not my child. but look for things like floppiness, the inability to make eye contact with a care giver. if your baby pulls close to you when you hug, sometimes these babies pull away. any of those what we call soft signs can all together mean your child belongs somewhere along the autism spectrum disorder. and any time there is a language delay, if your baby isn't speaking the same way that other children his or her age are, let your doctor know. because pediatricians often can urge parents and coach them into that early intervention. >> dr. nancy schneider snyderman covering this story in colorado, thapgs. thanks. carson is here with his orange room posts. i imagine a lot of people online, carson, talking about the ray rice story.
7:20 am
>> yesterday, all royal baby two until 1:00 eastern time. nfl suspends ray rice indefinitely. right now in this hour, goodell, ravens, #rayrice trending on twitter. the number one facebook post is ray rice. we'll walk you through some of the tweets. 1.2 million. obviously, this is a huge conversation. lots to get to. first, very trusted, respected former player, coach, analyst, tony dungy. nfl and ravens releasing ray rice was only possible action after seeing video. why didn't they see video before. that's one side. and then ben leber, not to take attention away from ray rice, but goodell saw the video earlier, they need to be held accountable as well. most people just excited this is a topic being generated. maria shriver, take note. no place for domestic violence in the nfl. much more in the next hour, guys. >> thank you very much. coming up, all eyes on apple. what will that tech giant unveil
7:21 am
with its biggest today and will it match the hype? we're there live. plus why prince harry is hoping his brother's next baby is a girl. but first, this is "today" on nbc.

7:33 am
one thing. the next big i-something is just around the corner. this morning, apple users are wondering how big. >> i feel they're still on top but now getting pressure to do something really amazing. >> reporter: does apple set the trend? >> i think they always have. >> and that, of course, is the iphone. >> reporter: more than seven years after the original release, the iphone is still the most popular smartphone in the country with an estimated 73 million users, many now ready for an upgrade. the big event expected to deliver that times two. >> now they're coming out with two phones. one is going to be slightly larger than the current phone, which is -- and the other is going to be quite large, sort of comparable to android phones. >> reporter: rumor has it, the larger, sleeker phones, with bigger batteries, faster processors, more durable screens and better cameras aren't the only stars of the show. for the first time since apple's iconic leader steve jobs passed away, the company is expected to unveil an entirely new product. >> could it be a watch? you better believe it. but apple is likely to call it
7:34 am
something else. >> reporter: the new release will be a test for new apple ceo, tim cook, who has been criticized for not leaving his mark after jobs' death. other apple criticism has come from consumers worried about security after the tech giant admitted some celebrity icloud accounts were recently attacked and personal intimate photos were released. though for many average users, all can be forgiven if apple delivers on promised security upgrades and the new releases deliver on the i-hype. >> they have a responsibility, you think, to kind of one-up themselves. >> yeah. they always do and they usually deliver. and i hope they deliver this time. >> reporter: also rumored to be a big hit, a mobile payment system wouldn't be new, but apple is expected to make it popular, turning our devices into mobile wallets. an apple senior vice president is quoted as saying this will be the best product pipeline in 25

9:04 am
players. >> three cases since they announced their new domestic violence policy have sprouted up. i call complete nonsense on the focus of this video. to your point. how was she knocked out doesn't matter. she was. and we saw -- i don't like this what happened before, because i believe, in my opinion, there's a dot, dot, dot of maybe she did something. what happened in there? it doesn't matter if he used an elbow, a hand, a weapon. she was completely knocked out. when that door opened. that's all they needed to see. and the next part of the conversation, former governor ed rendell of pennsylvania said, should roger goodell step down. that's the -- >> that's -- those are the dots people are -- >> absolutely. >> people are trying to make that connection. does roger goodell survive this. >> and i'm also not happy with people who keep saying, why is she staying? and, you know, there is some victim shaming going on here. and part of the -- it doesn't

matter if they don't. why are you asking that question? child or not? and we -- a crime was committed. charges were reduced. he has a plea deal. didn't take the plea deal. he has an arrangement where he's got to go to anger management. initially, she was even charged. they were dropped against her. but it's incredible. i talked with vice president joe biden yesterday about his effort. 20-year anniversary of the violence against women act. and part of that act includes officers can show up to a scene, if there is a sign of domestic violence, they don't have to have the victim press charges. they can at that point follow up and arrest that individual. all of this, part of this act. but i think some of this focus on the video, some of this shaming of the woman, it's just too much. it's absolutely too much. >> there was a tweet that was deleted yesterday. 4:30 p.m. yesterday. it was posted on may the 23rd from the ravens' official account that says janay rice regrets the role she played in this incident. in other words, they were

9:07 am
come. as is this next story, which is -- really very interesting. >> this is incredible. an estimated -- right now, 1 in 68 u.s. children have an autism spectrum disorder. there is a new study out that may offer inspiring hope to families. it's out today from uc-davis and looks at early intervention. we have heard people talk about early intervention. currently children generally begin treatment between 12 and 48 months. now seven infants ages 6 months to 15 months who were initially exhibiting severe autism symptoms, which include failure to make eye contact, repetitive play behavior, absence of babbling, some of the things you all noticed i'm sure early on in your children. those are milestones. over this three-year period, examined these children, and seven of them showed normal patterns of verbal and nonverbal development with early intervention. so to tell us more is dr. lee
9:08 am
banekor, joining us via skype from baltimore. what is your initial reaction to this study? >> well, i think it's a very encouraging study. if you think about it, this was a sibling study. so there was some idea in these parents' minds, they had siblings that had autism spectrum. so it made them think about their children early. but early intervention is the key. in the past, kids were like 2 years old when we identified the them. so i think because it was related to siblings, parents started to look for these cues. but they really brought them in, and they really got working with them every day, and working with them and the coaches and learned what to do. and actually, interacted with these babies that weren't initially having those normal interactions that you talked about. and i think it's pretty exciting. it's a small study. but it's pretty exciting. and it really points to, as we learn more and more about the
9:09 am
spectrum and risk factors and picking things up earlier. >> doctor, what specifically can a parents do? if they have a child who they feel might be existing early signs of autism or might be at risk for it, are there specific things a parent can tell their child to do and train their child in this case? >> they should probably talk to a health care professional first. but what -- in this study, what they talked about was, like, really imitating the child's sounds if they were making a few sounds. using the toys to interact with the child. spending some time -- there was years ago where there were studies where they talked about people locking themselves in dark bathrooms so that only the child could concentrate on what was going on at that time because there was too much going on from the outside. and i think this -- and that was many years ago. these were already older kids with autism. so i think there's this idea of really concentrating the attention individually on these
9:10 am
young kids very early on. and doing this repetitively every day in their routine to try and get them out of their -- these symptoms. and, in fact, they did find that these kids started babbling and started having eye contact. and started having language skills, which is one of the most disabling things about autism. >> doctor, thank you so much. we greatly appreciate your insight. >> small study again, but very interesting for families dealing with this. >> absolutely. here's a story that caught my eye. front page, cover story here of the "new york post." 51, single and pregnant. her name is tracy con, expecting in february, a pr person, publicist. she has already a 2-year-old daughter. and i thought what was interesting, you see so many more women now doing this, choosing to have children later on in life. she says, by the way, if anyone else thinks it's strange and unnatural, they're entitled to their opinion. but i honestly don't give a -- you know what she's saying
9:11 am
there. >> teaching kids new words. >> she has a long relationship -- slide right past that one. she's had lots of long-term relationships but never met the one and she is hoping someday she will meet the one, but deciding to take fertility in her own hands. saying sometimes you can't choose when these things happen. would i have liked to have had things the way you expect life to go, sure. >> did she do this with ivf? >> ivf, yes. and, yeah. i mean, it's an interesting thing. and i think more and more women, you're starting to see this. and we have come a long, long way, i think, back from the old murphy brown days where there was a question about being a single mom and raising a child and choosing to have a child later on in life by herself. a lot more women taking charge. >> she built up her career, at a point where she is ready for it. good for her. >> unfortunately, i don't think a lot of women can do that, because they can't afford to do that. but she it is in a position where she can. >> cool. al, what's going on outside? >> outside here in the

this year we've all pledged to shine a lot on an important issue. and i'm working with survivors of the boston marathon bombing, al doing a uso tour. willie with homeless children. >> and my focus has been on domestic violence. and this week marks the 20th anniversary of the federal violence against women act. vice president joe biden introduced that legislation as a senator. and i had the opportunity to go to washington, d.c. to talk with him about it. i started out by asking about the disturbing video involving former nfl star, ray rice. >> today the headline is "ray rice, an nfl star, the nfl has suspended him indefinitely." the ravens have fired him. this is after the most brutal video you can imagine was released of him knocking his wife out. >> the nfl did the right thing, whether for the right reasons,
9:43 am
spontaneous enough or not. they had no choice. >> when the hearings first started 20 years ago to explore the epidemic of domestic violence, they were low-attended. i remember congress, even some domestic violence groups at the time said this would never work. >> it was the women's groups that didn't stand up. it was the civil rights groups that didn't stand up. and there were so many laws on the books that lay the presumption that if somehow i raped you and i abused you, you must have done something. it's never, never, never the woman's fault. no man has a right to raise a hand to a woman. no means no. and when i started -- and that was my position 20 years ago. but it was like, oh, that's too -- you know are that's a little too strong. that's too much. because the society didn't want to pull back this -- peel this scab back. the one regret i have is we call it domestic violence as if it's a domesticated cat. it is the most vicious form of
9:44 am
violence there is. because not only the physical scars are left, the psychological scars that are left. this whole culture for so long has put the onus on the woman. what were you wearing? what did you say? what did you do to provoke? that is never the appropriate question. >> and when you look at this culture change in your op-ed, you wrote, it may be hard for people to fathom there was a time where domestic violence was ignored and condoned. >> i'm very proud of violence against women act. we passed a law. but that's not what's changed things. what's changed things is the change in the culture. making people aware. that's what changed things. so you know the first reason the nfl responded, in my view, there are so many women fans in this billion-dollar industry. all of a sudden, they said wait a minute, got suspended for a couple games? whoa, that's not enough. and then they got a little more sensitiz sensitized. and then it was longer.
9:45 am
and then when the video was out there, and saw how brutal it was, the ravens did the right thing. fired him. immediately. now, you can argue, they should have done it sooner. they didn't want it. whatever the reason is, it's happening. >> what's the next challenge? >> the next challenge is making sure, ironically, we get college presidents and colleges to understand that they have a responsibility for the safety of women on their campus. they have a responsibility to do what we know from great experience works. bringing the experts. provide people, give the young woman the support that she needs. psychological support. the medical support. and if need be, the legal support. societal changes taking place. it takes time. but i really believe it's taking root. and we have an obligation to just keep pushing it. keep pushing it. we'll see what happens. but we'll be right back after this. fter this. ♪
