tv   Anderson Cooper 360  CNN  May 31, 2011 10:00pm-11:00pm PDT

10:00 pm
that's all for tonight. here is anderson cooper good evening. with ac 360. we begin keeping them honest on a story we've been out in front of from the beginning. vital news to anyone who uses a cell phone. today, world health organization panel took a fresh look at the medical research and concluded that cell phones might cause cancer. the w.h.o. report comes just days after dr. sanjay gupta investigated serious questions about the current research on cell phones and cancer. here's a portion of sanjay's report, which aired as recently as last night, foreshadowing today's stunning 180 from the
10:01 pm
w.h.o. on cell phone safely. >> if you've ever put a cell phone to your ear -- >> there's no way to say cell phone use is safe. i think that the public has a right to know that there could be a potential risk. the public generally assumes if one is selling something on the market that we have had assurances that that device is safe. >> to be clear, dr. black's message is at odds with headlines from the largest international study on cell phones in cancer. their conclusion, little or no evidence cell phones are associated with brain tumors. but if you look just one layer deeper into the appendix of that same study, you'll see something unsettling. turns out participants in the study who use a cell phone for ten years or more had double the rate of a brain tumor.
10:02 pm
>> basically what triggered today's warning, a closer look at the studies. last year, interphone, a 13-country study, found no overall higher risk of brain tumors but found that people who used a cell phone for ten years or more had double the rate of a cancer called glioma, which is one of the most aggressive forms of brain cancer. some studies have caused new reasons for concern. earlier this year, researchers using brain scans showed that less than an hour of cell phone use can increase brain activity in the area closest to the antenna. and cell phone radiation is measured on the assumption that you don't hold the phone to your ear. phone makers recommend a half inch or more. but as you and i know, hardly anyone does that. for years, i, like most of you, have pressed the phone against your ear. even the manufacturers recommend that you don't do that. the studies are confusing and none is done the same way. and then there's this, our medical producer spoke recently to a researcher, dr. henry lay
10:03 pm
of the university of washington. like the w.h.o., he's been reviewing cell phone studies. what he found is that in the studies not funded by the cell phone industry, 67% reported negative health effects like fertility problems and cancer. but in a studies that were funded by the cell phone industry, just 28%. that's according to a respected researcher on radiation and its effects on people. but you can't draw any firm conclusions on that, just like the w.h.o. couldn't draw a firm cancer connection from the studies they looked at. that's why the cell phone industry trade group say the reports say they do not cause cancer, but they do say they might. i sat down earlier tonight with dr. sanjay gupta. the world health organization has always assured consumers that cell phone radiation had no adverse health effects. today it seems like a different message.
10:04 pm
>> it very much does. this is happening as what he speak. they're saying cell phone use and these electro magnetic waves, they're going to classify that has a possible cancer causing agent. so this is very different from what we've been hearing from the world health organization for some time. look, this is 31 scientists representing many different countries. they looked at existing studies, anderson. many of the ones we've talked about. this wasn't new research. they looked at the existing studies, including the interphone studies and after deliberation, they came to this conclusion, a possible cancer causing agent is how they're labeling it. >> other carcinogens are lead and chloroform, but the cell phone industry is dismissing this, saying coffee is also listed in this group.
10:05 pm
>> they say there's like tobacco, things that are probable carcinogens and this they're calling a possible carcinogen. gasoline exhaust is in this category. with regard to coffey, i saw that, as well. coffee, there was some concern that there might be an increase in bladder cancer as a result of coffee consumption. but you're getting an idea of the imperfections of the science here. they can draw a cause and effect relationship. they're not saying they have done that by any means. looking at all the existing studies, they're changing their chance. the world health organization is changing their stance and saying this is not something that we're going to say has no merit whatsoever, we're saying this is a possible carcinogen and merits more study.
10:06 pm
>> the u.s. government is also saying there's insufficient evidence that cell phone radiation poses a risk. do you think they may alter that? >> i think they might. we talk about the fact that the fcc says look, there's no risk, you don't need to do anything extra to protect yourself, which we reported on a couple weeks ago. you know, the world health organization is a very legitimate body of scientists. again, they represent scientists from all over the world. they all have a lot of legitimacy, so i think lit be interesting how the cds reacts. they're not saying a cause and effect relationship, but they're saying that there's no evidence whatsoever, we're not saying that either. so this is a step in another direction for them. >> it sounds like the bottom line here today is something you've been reporting on this program for several weeks is
10:07 pm
cell phone radiation may cause cancer. so what are the best ways to limit exposure? >> so many things we talk about on that list that you mention, they're more unavoidable. with this, even in the pamphlets that come with cell phones, they say you should not hold a cell phone next to your ear. you could use an ear piece is what i use. i think that by simply doing that, the amount of radiation drops off significantly the further and further away it is from your head. we're talking about the brain here. the glioma, this is what they're most concerned with here. >> i think that's important. when you told me that when we did this story a week or two ago, i bought an ear piece and i've been using it since. but i don't think most people know that.
10:08 pm
everybody you see on the street, they have the phone pressed up against their head and that's how i've been using it for years. >> most people do. and i think that what is so interesting about this, anderson, is this is up folding real time. we talked about this a couple times over the last couple weeks. this world health organization, i don't think anybody knew what they were going to say before we heard the announcement this afternoon. this is unfolding. as more people learn about this, the message is absolutely not saying don't use your cell phone. people are going to use their cell phone. the message is there's a possibility of a risk here and it's an easy one to address. especially children who will likely be using a cell phone for the rest of their lives, should think about this, as well. a lot of the concern is that the skin is thinner, the bone is
10:09 pm
thinner. could the effect be greater as a result? >> get an earphone if you can. use that, keep the cell phone away from your body and away from your ear, even if you don't have an ear piece, just keep it away. sanjay, thank you very much. >> you got it, anderson. >> let us know what you think about it on facebook or twitter @ anderson cooper. still ahead, we've seen a lot about syria, but this is perhaps the worst. a 13-year-old boy reportedly tortured and murdered by the regime. his name, hamza. his death has sparked renewed outrage in syria. we feel we owe it to this little boy to bear witness to what has happened to him. also, the revealing photographs from congressman anthony wiener's cell phone. he had a very heated exchange. here's just a short part.
10:10 pm
>> we follow some rules here and -- >> i would love to get an answer. >> you do the question, i do the answer and this jackass interrupts me? s is >> isha sesay is following other stories for us tonight. a dramatic day in the casey anthony trial. cindy anthony, casey's mom, practically collapsed. she had to ask the judge for a break. coming up, the 911 recording that made her fall apart.

tonight, the question congressman anthony wiener is refusing to answer about a lewd photograph sent to a 21-year-old college student. andrew brightbart broke the story. over the weekend, he tweeted this -- >> the new york congressman seemed to be making light of the situation but has now hired a lawyer. his office said -- >> bring you up to speed, the college student the tweet was
10:14 pm
addressed to was jeanette, who tweeted this in the past -- in a statement, she admitted she's a fan of the congressman and said he began following her on twitter a month or so ago. but as for her being her boyfriend, not so much. >> so she says she wasn't being literal. but you can understand why reporters would want answers from the congressman himself. listen to this. >> you say that you were hacked, which is potentially a crime. why haven't you asked the capitol police for any law
10:15 pm
enforcement to investigate? >> look, this was a prank that i've now been talking about for a couple of days. i'm not going to allow it to decide what i talk about for the next week or two weeks. and so i'm not going to be giving anything more about that today. >> but with respect, you're here, which we appreciate, but you're not answering the questions. can you just saw why you haven't asked law enforcement to investigate? >> you know, dana, if i was giving a speech to 45,000 people and someone in the back of the room yelled out an insult, would i spend the next two hours responding to that? >> no. >> i would get back -- >> this is not that situation. >> you want to do the briefing? do you want to do the briefing, sir? >> from your twitter photograph, a lewd photograph was sent to a college student. was it from you or not? >> do you want me to finish my answer?
10:16 pm
>> yes, this answer. did you send it or not? >> if i were giving a speech to 45,000 people and someone in the back threw a pie or yelled out an insult, i would not spend the next two hours of my speech responding to that pie or that insult. i would return to the things that i want to talk about to the audience -- >> all you have to do is say "no." >> that is what i intend to do. >> let me try a different question. the william who -- this woman who allegedly got this tweet, she released a statement saying you follow her on twitter? is that true? and if so, what is the reason? >> you know, i have said this a couple of ways and i'll say it again. i'm not going to permit myself to be distracted by this issue any longer. >> all you have to do is say no to that question. if you're not following her on twitter -- >> why don't you let me do the answers and you do the
10:17 pm
questions. >> congressman, you understand the frustration. we appreciate you're talking to us, you're cooperating, but you're not answering the question. >> this is now day three. you have statements that my office has put out. >> but they don't answer the question. >> and there are going to be people who -- look, this is the tactic. the guy in the back of the room who is yelling out the insult wants that to be the conversation. >> but you said you were hacked and that's a potential crime. >> dana, i'm going to have to ask that we follow some rules. >> i would love to get an answer. >> you do the questions, i do the answers and this jackass interrupts me, how about that? let me just give you the answer. the objective of the person who
10:18 pm
is doing mischief is to try to distract me from what i'm doing. for the last couple of days that has happened. i made a decision i'm not going to let it happen today or tomorrow. >> if this is the nonstory you say it is -- >> i characterize it as a distraction. >> if this is the distraction, you're a sophisticated guy, just answer the questions. >> i've been doing that for several days. now i choose -- now i choose -- there are people here who haven't read the statements. look, all i can tell you is this, this is akin to someone deciding on day three or four they want to continue talking about something i consider a distraction and the decision i've made is i'm not going to permit it to distract me. i'm not going to permit it to continue on for three, four, five, six days. if that's unsatisfactory to you, i apologize. but i think what people want me to talk about is the disparity between the wealthy in this country and people that don't
10:19 pm
have as much or it's more difficult being in the middle class in this country. thank you, guys. >> dana bash you saw in that interview joins me now with jeffrey toobin. dana, what questions has he not answered? >> all the ones you just heard me asking. what is so weird about this is it's so plausible that his twitter account was hacked, it really is. the experts we talked to, it's very easy to do. so the fact that he just won't answer some basic questions just even say point blank that it wasn't him is very weird. >> so he has not said that's not a picture of my private parts? >> no. earlier today he came out and was very gracious and answered reporters questions earlier in the day, as well. he was asked, is the picture you? and he gave a similar answer to the clip you just saw.
10:20 pm
>> and he wouldn't say whether he was following her on twitter, right? >> no, she -- the woman we're talking about, this 21-year-old college student, who was the alleged recipient of this tweet, she actually said in her statement to the "new york daily news" that anthony wiener was following her on twitter. so that's one of the questions we asked, is that true, and if so, why would you follow her? he wouldn't answer that question. he kept talking about the 45,000 people in the room. >> jeff, why would he secure an attorney -- i get why he would secure an attorney but why wouldn't he contact the capitol police? >> i can answer that. hiring an attorney is of no significance. it doesn't mean he did anything wrong that he hired an attorney. the weird thing about this story is he started out being very open and treating it as a joke,
10:21 pm
and now in this sort of hilarious interview with dana and ted, he's acting like a perp and suggests he had something to hide. in his defense, we do need to point out that the person behind this is andrew brightbart, who's made a practice of targeting democrats, shirley sherrod most notoriously, and his stories tend to fall apart on close inspection. here, anthony wiener doesn't seem to be ending the story. >> dana, if we called the capitol police and asked them to look into it, they would do that, right? >> absolutely. that is the protocol here on capitol hill. i talked to law enforcement sources, and they said that
10:22 pm
if -- it would not be unusual for a member of congress who felt that their account was hacked if they called the capitol police to please look into this, i want to know who did this, they would do it. and a spokesman for the fbi, who would also be a potential place that would investigate, they also said that congressman wiener has not called to ask for an investigation. he said that it was a prank and wants to move on. but it was just a little odd that he wouldn't answer that question. >> it's also far from clear that even if he was hacked, there was a crime committed here. as far as i'm aware, there's never been a criminal prosecution based on impersonating someone on twitter. if he actually sent this lewd photo, i don't think that's a crime either. it's probably bad taste, but i
10:23 pm
just don't think this is really a law enforcement matter. it's a political matter. >> you get the sense that his strategy is just kind of wait thing out and thinking it will just go away? >> absolutely. that's what it seems to be. he's very cognizant as i said of the optics of this story. earlier today, he came out to the cameras, talked to another one of our producers and was answering some questions and she started to ask another followup question. today, he came over to us and to other reporters very carefully doing so, he even went to his office to put on a tie. he doesn't want to look like he's run away from this, it's just what he's saying is not answering basic questions about what all went down and as you both pointed out, raising more questions.
10:24 pm
>> dana bash, appreciate it. jeff toobin as well. thank you very much. up next, syrians rallying around a 13-year-old boy. it's not just syrians, tough talk from secretary of state clinton about this boy and what happened to him. we'll talk to a woman in hiding in syria. later, the casey anthony murder trial. casey's mom breaking down on the stand. mark geragos and nancy grace join me with two very different perspectives on the case. down the hill? man: all right. we were actually thinking, maybe... we're going to hike up here, so we'll catch up with you guys.

keeping them honest tonight. more evidence that syria's dictatorship is abducting, torturing and murdering its own children. children like hamza, 13 years old, taken by security forces at a protest rally last month. his family had no word for a month about their little boy. imagine that, the government taking your child and for a month you not having any information about him. then the government returned hamza to his family. they returned him dead. the terribly mutilated body was given to the family last week. we're going to show you some pictures, we're blurring them but they're difficult to look at. we think it's important to know what happened to this little boy
10:29 pm
and what is no doubt happening to others in custody right now. this is how hamza's body came home, multiple gunshot wounds, cigarette burns, his genitals mutilated. today, hamza's ordeal drew sharp words from secretary of state hillary clinton. >> i too was very concerned by the reports about the young boy. in fact, i think what that symbolizes for many syrians is the total collapse of any effort by the syrian government to work with and listen to their own people. >> according to reports, this little boy's kneecaps were
10:30 pm
shattered, his penis cut off. their own people say enough. hamza they say is not the only child tortured and killed and returned to his family. the aim, apparently to terrorize. the same thing happened to an 18-year-old with learning disabilities. this is the assad regime's m.o. today, they declared an amnesty for protesters, but there's no definition we would ever use or understand. amnesty for them is you get life at hard labor instead of death and said that security forces have made some mistakes handling the uprising. none of this is a mistake. nor is keeping cnn and other media out of the country just a mistake. it's part of a plan. for weeks activist razan hasn't been afraid to speak out. when you saw the video of little
10:31 pm
hamza's body, were you as shocked as the rest of the world is shocked or is this what you've come to expect from the assad regime? >> i should separate between as an activist and have been working as a human right activist for the last ten years, i wasn't shocked. we've heard a lot of stories like this. as a human being for sure nobody can look at such a picture committed against children and not be shocked. >> it doesn't make any sense, though. why would a regime do this to a 13-year-old child? >> such things have always happened in syria. but nobody wanted to believe it at that time. human rights organizations have always talked about tragic crimes, about torture, even for children. i remember many, many other
10:32 pm
stories like this during last year. but at that time, the world didn't want to hear and didn't want to see anything. any way, by practicing this awful torture against the prisoners, they want to send messages to the whole syrians, that this is what you will have when you continue your protest and movement. it's a strong message. they want everybody to get scared about continuing. >> today president assad, the dictator in syria, announced that he's granting what he calls amnesty to protesters accused of committing crimes. that's been the headline around the world that assad is offering amnesty. but when you lock at the definition of what he's calling amnesty, it's not amnesty as everybody else and the rest of the world knows it. he's basically just reducing punishment, instead of the death penalty, you get a life sent tense at a labor camp.
10:33 pm
does anybody in syria believe that when he's offering amnesty? >> first of all, our prisoners are not criminals and we refuse to use the word "amnesty." we are not criminals to have amnesty from anybody. the regime, who should ask for amnesty from its own people for the crimes its committed against them during the last two months, this is from one side. from another side, yes, they might release some prisoners just because of all the pressure now on the regime from the street and the international society. but tomorrow they will arrest more people. so it means nothing if they will continue to arrest more people. >> razan, stay strong.

tonight, "crime and punishment." high drama in the casey anthony murder trial. the trial started last week in orlando, florida. 25-year-old casey is charged in the death of her daughter caylee back in 2008. from the opening statement, it's been pretty much bombshell after bombshell, starting with the defense's statement that caylee wasn't murdered but accidently drowned in the family's pool and casey and her father covered it up. casey's mother, cindy anthony, was on the stand sobbing as jurors heard a 911 call after casey admitted she hadn't seen caylee in 31 days. >> oh, my god. i need to find her.
10:40 pm
>> your daughter admitted the baby is where? >> that the babysitter took her a month ago. i told you my daughter was missing for a month. i just found her today but i can't find my grand daughter and she just admitted she's been trying to find her, herself. >> well, there have been a lot of lies in this case, a lot of dramatic moments that's had incredible twists around turns. tom foreman reports. >> reporter: in the florida courtroom where casey anthony's life is at stake, an electric moment. her lawyer describes her father, george anthony, finding his 2-year-old granddaughter, caylee, drowned in a swimming pool. >> she immediately grabbed caylee and began to cry. and cry and cry. and shortly thereafter, george began to look at her, "look what you've done! your mother will never forget you and you will go to jail for
10:41 pm
child neglect for the rest of your fricking life." and it all began when casey was 8 years old and her father came into her room and began to touch her inappropriately. >> reporter: that's the reason, they say, casey anthony joined in a coverup. >> this is not a murder case. this is not a manslaughter case. this is a tragic accident that happened to some very disturbed people. >> reporter: but the prosecution and even casey anthony's own parents say it's just not true. no accidental drowning, no coverup, no sexual abuse. >> have you ever sexually molested your daughter, casey anthony? >> no, sir. >> reporter: prosecutors paint the accused woman as a cunning, self-centered killer, who
10:42 pm
suffocated her child with chloroform and duct tape, stuffed her into a bag and dumped her in a swamp and went on a month long spree of partying, drinking, even entering a hot body contest at a nightclub while the family wondered where the little girl had gone. >> no one else lied to investigators, no one else benefited from the death of caylee marie anthony. caylee's death allowed casey anthony to live the good life, at least for those 31 days. >> the challenge for the defense is making sense of casey anthony's own behavior. prosecutors say her computer was used for google searches on chloroform, neck breaks and shovels. they say she concocted a story about how the girl was with a nanny, getting a name, talking about when she would see the girl, all according to prosecutors, a fabrication. >> did she ever seem sad she did not see her? >> her demeanor never changed.
10:43 pm
she was the same person. >> there's absolutely nothing to find out. >> reporter: this one with her mother. >> if anything happened to caylee, i'll die. if anything happened to my baby. >> oh, my god, calling you guys, a waste, huge waste. >> reporter: and then there is this. >> i got within three feet of my daughter's car, and the worst odor that you could possibly smell in the world. and i've smelled that before. it smelled like a decomposed person. >> it was amazing. casey and caylee had a very special bond. >> reporter: but which version
10:44 pm
of casey anthony the jurors buy will determine her fate. tom foreman, cnn. >> hln's nancy grace has been following this case from the beginning. i spoke to her earlier, along with criminal defense attorney mark geragos. nancy, the prosecution doesn't have a motive, and they don't have a cause of death. aren't those the kind of two biggest problems that they're facing? >> well, anderson, as you well know, the state doesn't have to prove motive at all. how are we, the state, supposed to crawl into somebody's mind, especially a defendant on trial for murder, and determine what they're thinking? but as a practical reason, they do need to show that to the jury. however, i think they are showing motive, anderson. by all the problems tot mom had finding babysitters, she wouldn't pay for them. and it got to the point where
10:45 pm
the prosecution will allege her babysitter was homemade chloroform. >> mark, to you, is the lack of motive, is the lack of -- maybe even more important, the cause of death a big problem for the prosecution? >> i think the cause of death is potentially fatal for the prosecution. but in terms of the motive, when nancy says you can't crawl into the mind, the prosecution has to crawl into the mind. in order to do a murder prosecution, you have to have malice, and malice is what is the defendant's state of mind. so that's exactly what you're focused on. you have to number one prove a manner and cause of death, or at least if you can't do that, you've got to give the jury some kind of a credible story as to what happened. so this is -- the prosecution has an uphill battle, i think. other than the fact that they're going to resort to what i affectionately call the character assassination evidence. >> nancy, are they assassinating her character? it seems like the defense is doing that to her parents. >> yes, anderson, they are. as a matter of fact in the last hours, tot mom's mother cindy
10:46 pm
anthony has on the stand doubled over in tears as she was cross examined by the defense. and interestingly, anderson, her own daughter looked on as if she didn't even know who cindy anthony was, completely stone faced. and in response to mr. geragos, anyone that's been watching the testimony and been in the courtroom knows the state has established motive and certainly a jury is not going to give a gold star to a defendant that manages to hide a 2-year-old's body until it decomposes beyond a cause of death. believe me, tot mom has told so many lies the cause of death is going to pale in comparison to the rest of the testimony. >> mark, when you have a client who has told numerous fabrications to law enforcement and led law enforcement on literally led them to an office building she no longer worked at, isn't her credibility a huge problem?
10:47 pm
>> of course. credibility is something that's going to always be a problem for any defendant, because that's what prosecutors do. prosecutors lay out the defendant. they try to get a jury to believe that somebody who lies, therefore you're going to make the leap to therefore they're a murderer. when nancy says motive has been proven, i would challenge that. first, nancy's argument is that they don't need to prove a motive, and now it's abundant that they prove the motive because they couldn't get a babysitter. the fact remains, the prosecution, if the jury is focused on the evidence, has to show how did she die, give us a credible explanation as to how she died and the cause of death. that's criminal law 101. i understand that if you don't like the person, the easy way out of this is to demonize the defendant. that's nothing new. but by demonizing the defendant, that's not supposed to supply any lack of evidence that you've
10:48 pm
got if you're the prosecutor. >> anderson, i hardly think that tot mom's own computer searches back in march when caylee goes missing in june, how do you make homemade chloroform, how do you make weapons out of household items, how do you break someone's neck, these are her computer searches. and then chloroform turns up in toxic levels in her trunk. that's hardly character assassination, that is hard evidence, anderson. >> mark, is that hard evidence? >> well, look, all of these things that are supposedly out there, until they get into a courtroom and you see them in a courtroom, you understand what it is, until they've been cross examined, i don't buy any of it until you see it and -- >> nobody is trying to sell it to you, geragos. >> look, nobody is trying to -- all they're trying to, and when
10:49 pm
