tv Way Too Early MSNBC January 6, 2014 2:30am-3:01am PST
bill karins said the wind chill in some areas will drop 70 degrees in some areas. >> iraq makes some progress. this is "way too early." good morning, everybody. brian shackman here. monday, january 6th. that means now everybody is back at work. some folks got to take some of last week off. now we have everybody. hopefully those new year's resolution are still on that 5:30 a.m. eastern time treadmill. in a few minutes, big plans for the pope and of course never too early to talk about super bowl ads. we'll talk about how much they're going to cost this year ahead in business. we begin with some surprising overnight political news. liz chip aeney expected to drop bid for senate msnbc has learned. a recent family incident caused her to reconsider. you may remember cheney and her
sister mary, who is gay, publicly sparred over same-sex marriage. it peeked when she posted on facebook, liz's position is to treat mooi family as second class citizens. this isn't a discussion over grazing fees or what to do over iran. dick cheney came to liz's defense. it did little to diffuse the situation. liz cheney has trailed in public polling and saw veteran republican lawmakers flock to encouple bent mike enzi's chamber. cheney could leave as early as this week. also later today in congress, the senate will vote on a three month extension of unemployment benefits for more than 1 million americans. democrats believe they have the votes to advance the bill but house republicans argue the costs should be offset with spending cuts.
senators rand paul and chuck schumer talked about their points. >> i'm not opposed to unemployment insurance. i am opposed to how to pay for it. what i've always said is it needs to be paid for but we also need to do something for long-term unemployed people. we need to create something new that would create jobs. >> the tectonic plates of our politics have changed. for the first five years of the obama administration the two issues that dominated were health care and budget deficit. this year dealing with declining middle class incomes and not enough job growth will be the none one issue. and if on the first day of the new session the republican party says they won't even support unemployment benefit extension, the original round was started by george butch when unemployment was 5.6%, they're going to show themselves so far out of the main street that it will hurt them. >> let's head overseas where there are growing concerns about
stability in iraq after extremists took control of two key cities. iraqi officials said they were able to take back parts of ramadi. the progress was made after heavy fighting of iraq's military and the unimilitants. it's a different story in the city of fallujah. they've joined forces with the al qaeda linked militants. secretary of state john kerry says the militants are, quote, the most dangerous players in the region. >> this is a fight that belongs to the iraqis. that is exactly what the president and the world decided some time ago when we left iraq. we're not contemplating returning and putting boots on rnt ground, this is their fight. >> iran also says it will offer support if iraqi authorities ask for it. >> the united states says they belong behind bars. afghanistan is moving ahead with
plans to free dozens of detainees, some of whom the u.s. says were directly involved in killing american and nato forces. a review board has signed off on the release of 88 prisoners from bagram air force base. afghanistan first control of the prison in march despite u.s. concerns that the detainees would be freed. afghan president hamid karzai has yet to sign the long-term security agreement with the u.s. ahead of plans to withdraw by the end of 2014. back here at home investigators are now trying to figure out what caused deadly plane crash yesterday afternoon in aspen, colorado. en route from mexico, the plane crashed while trying to land and it flipped upside down and quickly went up in flames. one person was killed, two hurt, one seriously. pope francis heading to the holy glounld. he announced yesterday he will head to israel, jordan in may.
he will become the fourth pontiff to visit that region. the vatican is rejecting the thought that he will accept same-sex marriage for couples. he was quoted as saying on an educational level gay unions raise challenges for us today which for us are sometimes difficult to understand. i remember a case though where a sat little girl said my mother's friend doesn't love me. the vatican said pope francis's words were manipulated. let's turn to the debate over the nsa. rand paul will file a class action lawsuit against the obama administration over the agency's spy program. paul is questioning the right to collect data for millions of americans from one single warrant. congressman peter king
disagrees. >> rand paul does not know what he's talking about. rand paul is spreading fear among the american people. to me either he's totally uninformed or he's part of that hate america crowd that i thought left us in the 1960s. in any event, he doesn't deserve to be in the united states from spreading that misperception and absolute lies. >> it bothers me that as we look at rand paul, americans could die. the azzazi attempted subway attack in 2009 was stopped primarily by the nsa. if rand paul had been around, hundreds of new yorkers would be around today. >> there are also growing calls for edward snowden to be granted clemency for his role to be leaking confidential materials. janet napolitano does not believe that should happen saying there needs to be balance between privacy and security but that snowden, quote, went off on
his own and damaged the u.s. in the process. we're two years from the presidential race but outside hillary clinton backers are coalescing around her bid. maggie habram describes a campaign in waiting. on one side a dozen clinton staffers and loyalists. on the other, super pacs and outside groups positioning for clinton's blessing. there was growing concern over the emerge gents of help from the -- at clinton's direction the groups have begun to make a little bit of peace. now priorities u.s.a. which backed president obama will handle megadonors. they'll focus on an e-mail database.
we want to know without you googling it your best explanation for this fact. #waytooearly. put your answers on the show. wall street kicking off its first full week of the new year with december's jobs report due out this coming friday. they close the out last week. the dow the only one in the green about 28 points. let's go to cnbc with jeff cutmore. happy new year, my friend. >> good morning to you. just away from the markets, you're going to pinch yourself and ask is it really 2014? because it still feels like 2013 when you look at the banks,
ryan. jpmorgan yet again in talks with regulators about a settlement. $2 billion this time for the feds over whether they ignored what was going on with bernie madoff's funds. so it looks like jpmorgan are going to settle on this. that will bring the total to about $20 billion that they've paid out for both regulators and federal prosecutors to settle problems that are still a hang joer from the banking crisis. let me move on from that. here's a fascinating story. do you know what holacracy is? it's the hot new management trend for 2014 if you believe zappos. they're introducing this flat management system. this is a unit of amazon. this is a way of getting your staff more focused on single projects. all i want to know is who gets the washroom key to the executive floor and do you get a chance, everybody, to sit on the
boss's swively chair. i don't know if that happens in a flat management structure. >> there's no like this? like this? >> yeah. the ceo relinquishes his title and then becomes just another employee. that's what zappos think is going to do it for them in 2014, brian. >> tony, always been a little bit ahead of the curve. we'll see what happens. obviously we're in the nfl playoffs. for us it's a big deal. kind of globally when people see how much is spent on the super bowl ads, it's a parlor game to figure out how much money there is and whether it's worth it. what do we have so far this year? >> wowza. we are talk 4g million for a 30 second spot. the price seems to go up and up. some interesting things. we have laurence fishburn. plus it looks like we have some healthier advertising.
so there's a new advertiser for this year. plus, we see jaguar turning up in the auto segment. there are son interesting new companies coming to the space here but my friends on the inside tell me the ads might be a little less sexy this year. i don't know if that's something that might concern you, brian, but that's currently what we're hearing. >> they don't have to be sexy but they have to be at a minimum funny. i'll give up sexiness for some humor. jeff, thank you very much. for 4 million bucks for the time does not include production costs as well. still ahead on "way too early," snoop dogg is talented but he may have found his calling as a guest host on "the price is right." seemingly unbearable cold at the 49ers green bay game but did it affect colin kaepernick? bill karins has the coldest
american forecast in 16 years when "way too early" comes back. the u.s. women's figure skating champion nancy kerrigan was attacked after a practice session in detroit. a man who had been videotaping her practice later ran up to kerrigan outside her locker room and hit her on the right thigh with a metal bar. ♪

beer on the grill. fantastic. the cold weather no doubt played a factor in this game. colin kaepernick who played sleeveless disagrees. >> we had discussed before the game you were going sleeveless, you weren't going to play with a glove today. tell me -- give me a sense of how cold it was out there for you? >> it's not that cold. >> come on. it's not, look at bo. he got no sleeves too. >> they've got the warmers, the bench, the jackets. >> it's not like they're going sleeveless and 75. third quarter, bengals with a three-point lead. philip rivers, lardarius green for the go-ahead score. >> andy dalton. >> andy dalton, three turnovers. 20 unanswered points for the chargers in the second half. they win 27 -- >> he's great or horrible. >> it's just -- i mean, listen, the chargers haven't won a playoff game in a couple of decades. saints will head to seattle on saturday afternoon. the colts will play in new england. my 6-year-old will be unhappy

>> that's a sense of humor. so he was forced to play until the next time-out with an untied shoe. that's classic. >> that's the only good thing he's done all year. >> that's just funny. must be buddies for that to happen. i had black ice and then went into some wet roads. >> fog, black ice. these temperatures are ridiculous. >> yeah, for 25 years or younger, you've never seen an arctic outbreak like this. '96 was the last big one. this one was massive in size. encompasses from the rockies and soon the east coast. the wind chill, these are the temperatures first. we dropped to 7 in oekklahoma city. the coldest spot in the country, northern wisconsin, is minus 27. we just got done with that snowstorm yesterday in chicago, st. louis, indianapolis and now you have these wind chill values on top of it are incredible. minus 34 in chicago. we're at minus 45 in fargo. the coldest wind chills i've been able to find were up there
