7:48 am
7:49 am
at 7:49, let's check in with the folks of the "today" show. we say good morning to lester holt and erica hill. hey, guys. >> rosemary, good morning. >> good to see you. coming up, breaking news overnight where a large party turned into a riot in the streets of one new hampshire town. dozens of people injured. several arrests. what started all this? we'll tell you. also, we're live in texas this morning where a cruise ship carrying a passenger who had been in isolation after the ebola scare has being doed just a few hours ago. people off the ship now.
7:50 am
and the texas hospital where ebola patient thomas eric duncan was treated is now speaking out about the mistakes it admits were made in handling the crisis. plus, we'll tell you about one mom's fight to keep a new toy off store shelves. a toy based on the "breaking bad" tv series. have you been in a wedding lately or spent any time on facebook? you may have noticed the craze of couples hashtagging their wedding. now the question is should they and should you as a guest document every single moment of their special day on social media? we'll take a look at wedding etiquette for the visual age. those stories and more when we get started on a sunday morning right here on "today," rosemary. >> as someone planning their own wedding, i'll definitely be tuning into that. >> okay. congratulations. >> yeah. this is a critical week ahead in america's fight against ebola. by tomorrow morning, everybody on the dallas cdc monitoring
7:51 am
list who is not showing symptoms of the virus, they will be declared ebola free. here are the new developments we in ohio, more than 100 people who were visited by dallas nurse amber vinson are being monitored. canada says it will begin shipping an experimental vaccine to the world health organization tomorrow. and president obama who met last night with the head of the cdc about the government's response to ebola, he used his weekly radio address to try to reassure the nation. of course, we do know that that carnival cruise ship, that has docked in galveston, texas, carrying that health care worker from dallas. ebola concerns will be the toppi issue on "meet the press." it will feature a panel of experts to answer your questions. and joining us now for a preview is moderator of "meet the press," chuck todd. good morning, chuck. >> good morning. >> chuck, of course, there's been a lot of fear and panic over ebola, but there are real questions of government accountability in making sure that the nation is prepared and calm. so who is to blame in
7:52 am
washington? >> reporter: well, that's always, you know, when you have a little over two weeks to go before an election day, the who is to blame question probably becomes a higher priority to some than it should be, but that has been part of the problem here. and i think the government itself when you look at what president obama did earlier this week, naming an actual ebola czar, a coordinator to deal with interagency communications, it shows that they know that they dropped the ball in handling the initial case in dallas. and that the cdc needs to get stricter. everybody needs to get stricter. and there needs to be an elevated way that things are handled. but, of course, i think part of this has been the fact that election day is so close, so it's been very easy to politicize it very quickly and frankly the white house has a history of underreacting to a crisis in the moment, then watching sort of social media get ahead of them. the facts get ahead of them, and they desperately try to get back in front of it. so i think it's been this combination of concern and anxiety over the disease itself coupled with the election.
7:53 am
>> and chuck, you bring up the election. the midterm elections are just 16 days away now. you're going to be hitting the road this week to meet the voters in key battleground states. what do you expect to hear from them? >> well, i'm hoping to find out what it is, this sort of wall that voters have hit. they're not happy with the incouple bepts in washington. maybe they're unhappy with the democrats, but they don't certainly want to reward the republicans or vice versa. they're not happy with their republican-elected official but they're not ready to reward the democrats. so the question is how do they express their anger? how do they express their disappointment in the form of their vote? what message do they want to send with their vote? that's really the key question a want to get an answer to. what is the message you want to send to washington with your vote? both to your member of congress and the president. and maybe perhaps if all of those voices are heard a little bit louder and a little bit clearer here in washington, maybe the people that actually win will hear what they're saying rather than just counting up their vote. >> good stuff. chuck todd, moderator of "meet
