3:00 am
from what was once jonestown in guyana, south america. in the news business, he is the gift that just keeps on giving. late-night comics love him for that, but plenty of people in toronto, well, they want him gone. as the city gears up to gut even more power from mayor rob ford, he prepares for his own, yes, television show. >> the typhoon that struck the philippines is long gone, but the desperation, it is only getting worse. millions are still homeless, hungry, and they are losing hope by the hour. >> and it began as a simple traffic stop, but the mom in this minivan with her five
3:01 am
children in tow gave police in new mexico a ride they will not soon forget. good morning, everyone. nice to have you with us. i'm zoraida sambolin. >> and i'm martin savage. nice to be with you. it is 6:00 in the morning and this is "new day" sunday. >> so calls for toronto's embattled mayor to resign are getting louder by the second. >> the council has already stripped ford of some of his powers, including his ability to govern during an emergency. despite his watered down position, a defiant ford says that he is not going anywhere. >> tomorrow, he's also set to launch his own television show, with one of his biggest supporters with his brother. for weeks, ford's admission to smoking crack cocaine and his refusal to step down has been the butt of jokes for comedians. >> and last night, the cast of "saturday night live" got their
3:02 am
shot at it. they poked fun at ford's erratic behavior, including lewd comments he made on live tv. >> i am sorry for how i have been acting. it is not indicative of my position of mayor in this great town of toronto. >> hey, man, i got what you asked for -- >> hey, not here, okay? let's do it under the desk. >> okay, okay. >> i'm the best mayor of all of the mayors! ♪ i'm the best mayor in the wor world! ♪ your mayor and suck [ bleep ]! >> oh, my goodness. >> i take a look at that clip before, just so i was prepared for that. >> all right, for the people of toronto, there was nothing funny about the mayor's real-life drama. >> angry protesters gathered outside of toronto city hall yesterday and said they want more than just an apology from the mayor, they want him out of
3:03 am
office. >> if we can't get him out of office for the terrible behavior and the awful things he's said, it means we have absolutely to standards. >> an apology is no sufficient and does not suffice for what has taken place. >> oh, they are angry. but not everyone wants the mayor to resign. cnn's senior international correspondent nick robinson has more. >> reporter: zoraida and robinson, there's one person who's been standing beside the mayor here, inside the city council chambers, voting with him not to have his powers stripped away. that's his bower, doug ford, a council member here. i asked him about the humiliation that his brother is going through with all these powers being stripped away. this is what he told me. >> just imagine if you took the ceo out and said, every one of you folks has the same power as the ceo. >> reporter: isn't it going to be humiliating for your brother to be put in that position? >> this whole issue is humiliating. >> reporter: this is what he's going to be remembered for. >> oh, he's going to be remembered by doing a great job. he's going to be remembered if
3:04 am
he fails to move in the right direction, and he's going to be remembered as the comeback kid. >> reporter: very important there that he's not sure himself how his brother, the mayor, is going to handle the pressure and the stress of the current situation. but the way the mayor is handling it so far, he says, is going to take the city council to court, challenge them by law, even though he'll have to put his hand in his pocket to do that. your brother, the mayor, said today he will fight some of these issues in court. it won't be the public money, it will be his money. how much is this going to cost you? how long can you go on fighting it? >> well, we've spent close to probably $1 million fighting on all the other court cases, three of them. and you've got to keep in mind, this battle didn't happen right now. >> reporter: how many -- how much money is it going to cost? >> this started three years ago when rob ford said -- >> reporter: but this is going to cost big. >> that's fine. we've taken on bigger guys too. >> reporter: how deep are your pockets?
quote
3:05 am
>> oh, i, you know, short pockets. >> reporter: short pockets? so you'll have to stop the fight pretty quickly. >> we're never going to stop fighting. >> reporter: and that fight only expected to get longer. on monday, the council expected to vote, to take more powers from the mairp, give them to the deputy mayor, take his operational budget, take some of his staff as well. but the mayor will get his own voice later the same day, a new talk show with his brother, unscripted, they say, but this will be their chance to appeal to their supporters, to put their view across an hour-long, but who knows what the mayor will say. we've seen some of his comments in the past few days. it can go any way. zoraida, martin? >> nic robertson, thank you very much. as we enter now week two of the recovery in the philippines after that deadly supertyphoon, people in that largely catholic nation are going to church and many are finding their places of worship badly damaged, the roof ripped off of some of those churches. >> the number of dead jumped again overnight. the government confirming now
3:06 am
3,681 deaths there, with more than 12,500 people hurt. and more than 1,100 are reported missing. >> reporter kyle penhaul is in tacloban, and i know you've been attending some of those masses this morning and i know it's been very emotional. >> reporter: that's right, martin and zoraida, we were down at the santo nina church, one of the largest here. the roof was completely peeled off by that supertyphoon. so as the mass was going on, rain, because it's rainy season here, was just pouring down into the church, down the aisles, and on to the pews. and there at one end, at the altar, stood the priest, him talking to the faithful talking about what it would look like when the end of the world came, trying to assure them this wasn't the end of the world, trying to calm their fears and give them solace. but as you looked around that church, it was difficult for
3:07 am
many families to find solace. we talked to two sisters, both of them mothers, ten days after that supertyphoon. they have not found five of their children. the youngest is 2 years old. one said she survived by clinging on to an electricity pole, her sister clung on to a tv and then a banana tv, and as the floodwaters subsided, she said being in those tidal surges was like being whipped around in a washing machine, they were flipped this way, flipped that way, and when the floodwaters subsided, no sign of their five children. they're hoping against hope they can find their children, but of course at this stage, those hopes must be fading. and she said to me, she says, i can't deal with it. i can't deal with the fact that i couldn't protect my sons when they most needed me, and she said that she would gladly head up to the tallest building in tacloban and jump off it. she said that really, she was very close to suicide herself. and it's very clear here that these families are going to need
3:08 am
some kind of psychology help, really difficult to imagine how they're going to overcome those kind of scenarios. this woman, herself, started off saying, if my sons could hear me now, i would just like to apologize for not being able to protect them. she says, if only i find their bodies and assure myself that they're not lying under debris or being eaten by dogs right now. >> oh, my goodness. >> reporter: martin and zoraida? >> karl penhaul, that's a horrific thing for any parent to have to endure. and on top of the devastation that people see, it's the devastation within them they have to come to grips with. thank you for that report. >> how do you heal from that, martin, right? all right, 8 minutes past the hour. at least 27 babies were born in tacloban after the typhoon and many of them were premature. >> now we know at least seven of them have died. >> that includes a baby that we told you about yesterday. her mother was manually pumping air into her lungs, because there was no power to hook up her ventilator at this makeshift neonatal unit. doctors say they have no idea
3:09 am
when a generator will be brought in to provide the power that they need. i know these are really difficult stories to hear, but this is a situation on the ground. this is what's happening. >> right. i mean, i think that gives you more than anything, the image of what these people have to deal with in the aftermath. and for ways that you can help survivors of typhoon haiyan, you can go to cnn.com/impact. back here at home, in north carolina, just a few miles south of charlotte, authorities say that they have stumbled on an absolute sickening case of child abuse. >> a child handcuffed to a front porch, a dead chicken tied around his neck. cnn's rosa flores is on this story. good morning, rosa. >> reporter: well, martin, zoraida, there are many shocking factors to this story. and perhaps one of the most shocking is the profession of the mother in question. she actually works for the department of social services. the outside of this north carolina house provides clues of
3:10 am
the alleged horrors happening here. >> the child had a dead chicken hung around his neck. >> sheriff's deputies say that 11-year-old boy was shivering, while allegedly handcuffed by the ankle to the porch. when the deputy asked the owner what was going on, another child opened the front door, releasing several large dogs that chased the deputy to his cruiser. >> man, he come out of here when greased lightning when he came back out of here. >> reporter: authorities won't get into the details, but the authorities of the house, dorian lee harper and wanda sue larson, now face intentional child abuse, inflicting serious injury, false imprisonment, and cruelty to animals charges. authorities removed five children from the home, ages 8 to 14. four adopted kids and the one allegedly handcuffed, a foster child. >> that was awful. i wish i had known that was going on, because it would have never within the on. >> reporter: harper is a nurse. larson is a supervisor at the
3:11 am
union county department of social services. because of her job title, she also faced failure to discharge her duty as a public official. larson wasn't at the house when the child was found allegedly handcuffed, but she's accused of being complicit. all of the children are in the custody of a social services agency outside of union county. and we should add that the sheriff tells cnn that that boy on the porch is the only one who appears to be mistreated. harper and larson are scheduled to face a judge for their initial appearance on monday. martin, zoraida? >> thank you, rosa. we just listen to that story and you're staggered. really, what can you say? you don't know what to say? >> but you want to understand the why. we'll talk a little bit later to the sheriff of join county to try to get some answers for you and try to understand how this happened. so still to come on "new day sunday," an incredible scene caught on police dash cam, when a routine traffic stop involving

3:18 am
watching this, so what's your reaction? >> well, i mean, first of all, this is one of those stories where it's like, what really went on? i mean, what was going on? and you could see that in both cases, maybe with the officers and with the driver, there are problems here in how they handled things. i just want to know, what was going on? >> i wonder why she pulled away the first time, because it seems maybe if she had not pulled away, maybe this wouldn't have escalated to the degree that it did. who knows? but that is a bizarre story. >> yeah, but the thoughts of anybody firing at a vehicle, and maybe that officer was unaware, because of course he had just arrived on scene, but there's all of these what-ifs, and the truth is, an investigation -- >> we're going to find out. it is now 18 minutes past the hour. officials believe they have found the body of a 42-year-old who found 18 feet out of a plane into the ocean on thursday. police say his body was found in a mangrove area yesterday morning, but they're waiting on
3:19 am
the coroner for an official investigation. detectives don't know yet if -- i'm not sure if he fell from the plane accidentally or if she jumped. the pilot of this plane called in a distress call and said somehow that door, as you saw in the animation, opened up and the guy fell out. crazy, bizarre story. >> another story where we're -- >> we need answers. >> we need answers, which is why we're here. still to come, though, on "new day sunday," interceptions, last-second field goals, and then shattered title dreams. we'll have more on usc's stunning upset over stanford last night. and why -- what happened after a game is putting a dark shadow over that victory. customer erin swenson ordered shoes from us online but they didn't fit. customer's not happy, i'm not happy. sales go down, i'm not happy. merch comes back, i'm not happy. use ups. they make returns easy.

3:24 am
go toe-to-toe with the fourth best team in the country and ultimate tli they upset the fourth best team in the country. usc kicked a field goal with 47 seconds left in the game, that pretty much sealed it, 20-17, and no one expected usc to upset stanford, fourth best team in the country. maybe the new head coach there. they've won five of six since they've fire ed kippin, so mayb. after the game, it was news that some usc fans when they stormed the field to celebrate, the los angeles fire department says five people were hurt during that stampede. no serious injuries, the worst appears to be a broken ankle. the worst appears to be an incredible play by auburn has them hunt for the national championship. they were down by one to georgia, 33 seconds left, a hail mary is answered right there. unbelievable. nick marshall puts the ball up and it gets tipped into the hands of ricardo lewis. the guy wasn't even looking.

[ male announcer ] this is jim, a man who doesn't stand still. but jim has afib, atrial fibrillation -- an irregular heartbeat, not caused by a heart valve problem. that puts jim at a greater risk of stroke. for years, jim's medicine tied him
3:28 am
to a monthly trip to the clinic to get his blood tested. but now, with once-a-day xarelto®, jim's on the move. jim's doctor recommended xarelto®. like warfarin, xarelto® is proven effective to reduce afib-related stroke risk. but xarelto® is the first and only once-a-day prescription blood thinner for patients with afib not caused by a heart valve problem. that doesn't require routine blood monitoring. so jim's not tied to that monitoring routine. [ gps ] proceed to the designated route. not today. [ male announcer ] for patients currently well managed on warfarin, there is limited information on how xarelto® and warfarin compare in reducing the risk of stroke. xarelto® is just one pill a day taken with the evening meal. plus, with no known dietary restrictions, jim can eat the healthy foods he likes. do not stop taking xarelto®, rivaroxaban, without talking to the doctor who prescribes it as this may increase the risk of having a stroke. get help right away if you develop any symptoms like bleeding, unusual bruising, or tingling. you may have a higher risk of bleeding
3:29 am
if you take xarelto® with aspirin products, nsaids or blood thinners. talk to your doctor before taking xarelto® if you have abnormal bleeding. xarelto® can cause bleeding, which can be serious, and rarely may lead to death. you are likely to bruise more easily on xarelto® and it may take longer for bleeding to stop. tell your doctors you are taking xarelto® before any planned medical or dental procedures. before starting xarelto®, tell your doctor about any conditions such as kidney, liver, or bleeding problems. xarelto® is not for patients with artificial heart valves. jim changed his routine. ask your doctor about xarelto®. once a day xarelto® means no regular blood monitoring -- no known dietary restrictions. for more information and savings options, call 1-888-xarelto or visit goxarelto.com. > mortgage rates were mixed this past week. take a look.

3:34 am
asked defense secretary hagel straight up, how worried is he if there is a u.s.-led nuclear agreement with iran, that israel might feel so isolated, it might react with military force and bomb iran's suspected nuclear sites. >> well, those are realities that the israelis tell us, explain that to us. we understand that. i think the iranians understand that. >> reporter: hagel insisted the u.s. won't go for what he calls a bad agreement, just to have an agreement. but here at a gathering of defense experts and lawmakers at the reagan presidential library, there was plenty of skepticism about an agreement with iran and a lot of that skepticism was led by key democrats, including hagel's predecessor, former defense secretary, leon panetta. >> there are obviously a whole set of concerns that have been addressed. what's going to happen with the enriched fuel that they've already developed. what's going to happen with the
3:35 am
10,000 centrifuges that are still there? what's going to happen with this heavy water reactor? and how is all of this going to be inspected and verified. >> reporter: but is trust and verify enough when it comes to iran? the powerful chairman of the senate armed services committee says, no. >> i love the slogan, trust but verify, was i've never understood it. but i think the right slogan is don't trust. i don't trust the iranians. and by the way, they don't trust us. >> reporter: so the message here at the reagan presidential library was many democrats joining with pro-defense republicans in being very skeptical of any nuclear agreement with iran. zoraida, martin? >> thank you, barbara. barbara star on the road with the defense secretary in southern california. well, the navy says that two sailors were injured when a drone malfunctioned and crashed into a ship during a training

to bring you out on to the tarmac to show you what is going on. as you can see, the aid is being piled up on the tarmac. it's ready to be disrupted. it's coming in from usid, the red cross, and other relief organizations. we're not just talking about food and water, medicine, the basic necessities, but also plastic sheeting for emergency shelters as well as sanitation kits and water purification kits. so very important as we move into week two of this natural disaster. now, while tacloban has been very much the focus of this massive relief operation, you know, authorities are now saying we need to start focusing on other areas that have been just as hard hit, that have not received the media attention. anna coren, cnn, tacloban, the fiancee. >> thank you, anna. now to tokyo where caroline kennedy is making history just days before the 50th anniversary

love that music? it was a wild couple of days for the one and only harlem globetrotters. first, globetrotter william avoided a very serious injury. his slam dunk sent the entire backboard crashing down right on top of him. things could have ended much worse for bullard, who was able to walk off the court and to a standing ovation. he's okay. then harlem globetrotters rookie, cory thunder, somehow drained this amazing record-setting 109-foot basketball shot, shattering the previous guiness world record by more than five feet. >> i wasn't a believer, but that is -- look at it right there, you can see it. follow it, follow it, follow it. it happened. now the beloved team have announced plans to entertain our troops overseas with some of their very unique and very cool skills. we are so excited to have them there, live right outside the cnn center in new york.

welcome back. each week, we are shining a spotlight on the top ten heroes of 2013. as you vote for the one that inspires you the most at cnnhero.com. this week's honoree is honoring the tradition of female mutilation that still exists in many country and giving girls a chance to shape their own destinies. >> i avoided the ceremony as far as i could. most of them, the mutilation when they are 12. i really liked going to school. i know that once i go through the cutting, i am going to be married off and my dream of becoming a teacher was going to end. my mind said run away, was i had to face my dad and say that i would only go through the
3:56 am
cutting if he lets me go back to school. it was done in the morning. using a very old, rusty knife with no anesthesia. i can never forget that day. eventually, i was the first girl in my community to go to college in the u.s. i returned to my village to start a school for girls, so they, too, can achieve their full potential. when girls start at our school, they're very shy, but over time, we see them very confident. they are doing very well. it's the best exciting thing. our work is about empowering the girls. these girls are saying no to being cut. they're dreaming of becoming lawyers, teachers, doctors. my daughter can do better than my son. i came back so girls in my
3:57 am
community don't have to negotiate like i did to achieve their dreams. that's why i wake up every morning. >> cnn heheroecnnheroes.com for vote. the princeton university board was holding its own meeting. they are trying to decide whether they should offer students a vaccine to protect a against a rare form of meningitis. >> the cdc says the drug which has been approved overseas can be used under these circumstances, but not every student is so sure. here's cnn's alexandra field with the story. >> reporter: princeton university tries to stem the spread of meningitis "b," a potentially deadly disease. >> we just try to be careful, but we're not freaking out about it. >> reporter: doctors have linked seven cases of the bacterial meningitis to the ivy league campus. now board members are considering whether to offer
3:58 am
students a vaccine that's only used overseas. >> if i were a parent, i would be very interested in getting the information and generally accepting and if i were around that table with the board of trustees, i would be gently encouraging them to do this. >> reporter: there's no vaccine in the united states, but given the outbreak of the rare stain ton campus, the cdc is approved to import the vaccine. >> if this vaccine was brought to the campus, would you encourage your son to take it? >> reporter: i think i would tell him to take it, but i'm not sure, because i'm not sure of the drawbacks. >> reporter: princeton's first case of meningitis "b" was diagnosed back in march when a student returned from spring break. the seventh case was diagnosed last week. the possibility of a vaccine is what some students have been hoping for. if board members and university
3:59 am
administrators agree to offer the vaccine, it would be available to some 8,000 students on a voluntary basis. >> i trust the vaccine, as long as it's approved in europe and australia, it gives me confidence in like the fact that it works, i guess. i probably wouldn't get it at the moment. like i said, i'm not too worried about the whole meningitis outbreak yet. so if princeton starts vaccinating students, i don't know if i would be first in line for it. >> a school spokesman tells cnn the final decision on whether or not the vaccine will even be offered is not expected before monday. well, thanks for starting your morning with us. >> we've got a lot more ahead on "new day sunday," which starts right now. good morning, everyone. i'm zoraida sambolin. nice to have you with us today. >> i'm martin savage. it's 7:00 on the east coast.
4:00 am
>> a good mood this morning! >> 4:00 on the west if you haven't figured the math. this is "new day" on sunday. >> we start this hour with recovery in the philippines now entering week two after that deadly supertyphoon ripped apart homes and devastated so many lives. today people in the largely catholic nation are returning to church, and many are finding their places of worship badly damaged. despite that, many are finding solace and hope. >> this is the only time, this is the only place where we can unburden all the things that we are feeling, because of our faith and with him, we are -- we feel that there's a sense of security with the lord. >> the death toll has risen again, that happened overnight. the government now confirming 3,681 deaths with more than 12,500 people hurt, and more than 1,100 that are still reported as missing.
4:01 am
>> reporter karl penhaul is in tacloban. karl, you attended a really emotional mass this morning. can you tell us about that? >> reporter: yes, zoraida and martin. even these sanctuaries, these sturdy buildings that are churches here in the philippines were not safe from that superstorm. and we went down to the santo nino church, one of the larges here in tacloban, the roof was absolutely peeled off by the typhoon when it passed over and the rain was pouring down on to sunday mass. it doesn't stop the faithful from going there. at one end of the church, the altar, the priest trying to assure his congregation that this was not the end of the world, that there was still hope that they could still move forward. you look around in the small crowd that have gathered there, and difficult for many of them to find solace. two sisters, both mothers, ten days after the typhoon struck, they're still hunting for five of their children. the youngest of them, 2 years
4:02 am
old. and at this stage, they don't know where they are, whether they are alive or dead. they say they were taken down by the tidal surge like it was a washing machine, spun this way, spun that way. and when the mothers emerged from the waves, they couldn't find their children. the hunt goes on, but at this stage, certainly, easy to imagine that they might be dead. but, of course, the focus is now on the survivors and relief aid is starting to filter in, amid all the chaos tacloban now, we saw a few cans of food being handed out, a few cakes, a few rolls of bread. but enough to give people some hope that now help is starting to get through and those bottlenecks have been broken. martin and zoraida? >> thanks, karl penhaul, very much. >> and for ways that you can help survivors of typhoon haiyan, go to cnn.com/impact. there's a lot of information on
4:03 am
there and ways in which you could potentially help all of these victims. moving on now to north carolina, this story is just shocking. it's occurring just a few miles south of charlotte and authorities there say they've stumbled on an absolutely sickening case of child abuse. >> listen to this. a child handcuffed ed ted to a porch, a dead chicken tied around his neck. cnn's rosa flores is on that story. good morning, rosa. >> reporter: martin, zoraida, there are many shocking factors to this story, and perhaps one of the most shocking is the profession of the mother in question. she actually works for the department of social services. the outside of this north carolina house provides clues of the alleged horrors happening here. >> the child had a dead chicken hung around his neck. >> reporter: sheriff's deputies say that 11-year-old boy was
4:04 am
shivering, while allegedly handcuffed by the ankle to the porch. when the deputy asked the owner what was going on, another child opened the front door, releasing several large dogs that chased the deputy to his cruiser. >> man, he come out of here when greased lightning when he came back out of here. >> reporter: authorities won't get into the details, but the authorities of the house, dorian lee harper and wanda sue larson, now face intentional child abuse, inflicting serious injury, false imprisonment, and cruelty to animals charges. authorities removed five children from the home, ages 8 to 14. four adopted kids and the one allegedly handcuffed, a foster child. >> that was awful. i wish i had known that was going on, because it would have never went on. >> reporter: harper is a nurse. larson is a supervisor at the union county department of social services. because of her job title, she also faced failure to discharge her duty as a public official. larson wasn't at the house when the child was found allegedly
4:05 am
handcuffed, but she's accused of being complicit. all of the children are in the custody of a social services agency outside of union county. and we should add that the sheriff tells cnn that that boy on the porch is the only one who appears to be mistreated. harper and larson are scheduled to face a judge for their initial appearance on monday. martin, zoraida? >> thank you, rosa. rosa flores covering that story from new york for us this morning. >> and union county, north carolina, sheriff eddie cappy is joining us on the phone. thank you for taking time to speak to us about this horrific case this morning. >> sheriff, what led you to conclude that the four other children in the home had not been abused. >> well, that's misleading. we have not concluded they haven't been abused, we've just seen no obvious sign other than a small amount of weight loss in those children. but we're still investigating
4:06 am
this and the investigation will tell that. >> and we understand from the reports that you found this really by happenstance. i think an officer was responding to something that was happening in another home and happened to see this little boy on the porch. he was handcuffed, and he had a dead chicken around his neck. do -- do you have any explanation for that, when you talked to the homeowners? >> well, when we talked to the homeowners, no, but we don't have any idea of what would possess anybody to handcuff a child out on a porch on a cold, wintry morning with very little clothes on and tie a dead chicken around his neck. i can't understand that and to be honest with you, i'm glad i can't understand it. >> right. >> and so they haven't said anything to you? i mean, you must have questioned them both. have they given any kind of explanation as to what was going on? >> the male subject that we
4:07 am
arrested actually requested an attorney and has not cooperated and miss larson has cooperated, and she has given us a lot of information. >> is there any information you can share with us? >> well, there's not information we can share with you. it is -- she works in this, so we know she knew about it. she knew right from wrong, she knew the law. any person with any common sense knows that you can't treat children this way. so our officer will continue to talk to them, as they talk to us, and we will talk to these kids, and then we'll make a determine to how to move forward with the prosecution. >> this was a foster child who was found outside, handcuffed by the officer. had they had other foster children? could there be concerns of previous children that have been in their care? >> well, it is concerning. there's four other children that were there, were adopted children. so those are questions that we
4:08 am
will have to answer as we move along is, how did they adopt those children? how did they get those children? how was their home visits? if you look at this home, you know, we also wouldn't have allowed them to adopt an animal out of the animal shelter. >> and this particular family had never been in trouble with the law before? >> we know of nothing yet. >> all right, sheriff, thank you so much for taking the time to talk to us this morning, sheriff eddie cappy, union county sheriff there. it's absolutely mind boggling. >> it's a horrific story, you want to know so much more. >> there's no justification for what they found, but what you do want to understand is, what were they thinking? what was going through these folk's minds, that they did something like that to a child and the other children, because they seemed to be in good condition, but you don't know yet. >> i can't imagine they were
4:09 am
thinking anything. i'm sorry, i'm at a loss. all right, moving on. he's as recognizable as many of his famous clients he has defended. bill clinton to o.j. simpson to mike tyson. attorney alan dershowitz joins us live to reflect on his 50 years in law. that is next. ♪ wow...look at you. i've always tried to give it my best shot. these days i'm living with a higher risk of stroke
4:10 am
due to afib, a type of irregular heartbeat, not caused by a heart valve problem. at first, i took warfarin, but i wondered, "could i up my game?" my doctor told me about eliquis. and three important reasons to take eliquis instead. one, in a clinical trial, eliquis was proven to reduce the risk of stroke better than warfarin. two, eliquis had less major bleeding than warfarin. and three... unlike warfarin, there's no routine blood testing. [ male announcer ] 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. i've got three important reasons to up my game with eliquis.
4:11 am
[ male announcer ] ask your doctor today if eliquis is right for you. yeah. i heard about progressive's "name your price" tool? i guess you can tell them how much you want to pay and it gives you a range of options to choose from. huh? i'm looking at it right now. oh, yeah? yeah. what's the... guest room situation? the "name your price" tool, making the world a little more progressive.
4:12 am
you already know this, but i'll repeat it anyway. he's represented some of the biggest names in the news. now, famed attorney alan dershowitz has a new book, "taking the stand: reflecting on 50 years of life in law." >> and also, you've been teaching for 50 years. that's fantastic. joining us this morning, we have alan dershowitz. excited to have you this morning. i want to dive right into this book, because lots of folks are reading it and they say there are a lot of saucy details in this book. care to share some of those? >> well, you know, there's a big dispute now about who is the father of ronan farrow, mia farrow's son. i can't tell you that, but in the middle of the mia
4:13 am
farrow/woody allen custody dispute, a phone call. he said, hi, this is frank. and i said, frank who? and he said, frank sinatra, i love that girl, mia, what can i do to help? i can't want frank sinatra with his reputation as a tough guy interfering, so i said, please, please, don't do anything. but he really, really loved her. so maybe that gives you some shrew. >> i can imagine, clearly, people who you represent and also being so famous yourself that you had these kind of moments. for instance, the one i read about was that you were with -- well, you're in a private room with israeli prime minister, benjamin netanyahu, and he wants to know -- >> did o.j. do it?! and i said, mr. prime minister, does israel have nuclear weapons, and he goes, you know i can't tell you that, and i said, aha! >> nice deflection. >> there's another one in here, a marcia clark moment. please tell me about that one.
4:14 am
>> mar hcia clark went up to johnnie cochran and said, i want you to think of one thing when you make your closing argument, and he said, what, and she said, i'm not wearing any underwear. i didn't believe it, and i called her, and asked her, is that true? and she said absolutely. and i said, what, that you told him that or that you weren't? >> and she said you'll never know. i do turn down clients because of what they're going to do. i don't represent people who are in organized crime, who are drug dealers, who are terrorists, who are in the business of continuing crime. i don't want to be con csconsig to a crime family. but there isn't anyone to
4:15 am
presumptive guilty to not deserve a defense. a lot of my clients have probably been guilty. do we want to live in a country where the majority of people charged with a crime are innocent? to keep it that way, defense lawyers like me have to represent people who might be guilty or innocent. a lot of them turn out to be innocent. i'll tell you about a fascinating case. i was representing a woman who was an exotic dancer, who was involved with binnion from binnion's casino. he ended up dead. they thought she had smothered him to death and they found a button mark on his body, the same shape as the button he was wearing, proving that his chest had been compressed. i did an analysis, blew up the photograph. turned out it wasn't a button mark at all. it was a pre-existing benign tumor and she walked free. she now has an art gallery, has two kids. that kind of thing really makes you feel good. >> are there any other stories like that where you start going down one road and it totally
4:16 am
surprises you with the twists and turns? >> absolutely. even the o.j. simpson case. i was on tv the morning after the murder and i said, usually it's the husband who did it, probably did it, and i still don't know, obviously, anymore than anybody else does, but i did discover that the sock that they claim he was wearing during the time of the killing and had his blood and the blood of the victim's was actually manufactured by the police. how do i know that? because the blood on it had edta, which is a chemical not found in the human body, but only put in test tubes to make sure the blood doesn't coagulate. and also, the blood had mirror images on all four sides. if he was wearing the sock at the time, there would only be mirror images on the fourth and second, not the third and first. so we didn't win the o.j. case, they lost it. because the jury believed that the police were trying to frame somebody who they believed were guilty. >> yes, they did. and why come out with a memoir
4:17 am
now? >> it's been 50 years, i'm 75 years old, it's my 30th book. it's time. and you know, who knows whether i'll have a chance to write another memoir. i also want to predict what the law will look like in the next 50 years. so it's a 100-year book. 50 years looking back, 50 years looking forward. this is the right time for me to be reflecting on my future, on the law's future. and i make a lot of predictions. i think the supreme court will diminish in its authority over the next 50 years. >> well, it is a great read. we are so glad you're with us this morning. what a great story teller, right? i want to sit in on one of your classes. thank you very much for joining us today. >> thank you. >> "taking the stand" is the book, alan dershowitz is the author. thank you for sharing stories. so many more we could talk about. you are up early with "new day sunday." it's beginning to look a lot like 2016. he promptly rips into obama care. and he has become the butt

you know, when a washington politician trades the beltway for iowa, you know somebody is thinking about 2016. >> democrats have given potential republican candidates a really easy target, obama care. >> cnn's erin mcpike join us now from washington. and erin, what did congressman paul ryan tell iowans about the new health care law. i imagine it wasn't good. >> reporter: martin, he obviously said that he thought obama care was really harmful to millions of people. but what was interesting about his speech is that he said that he and mitt romney were running against big government in theory, but that if iowans got a chance to see what obama care was really like in practice, the
4:22 am
outcome of the election could be different. and he raked president obama over the coals for it. here's a little bit of what he had to say last night. >> we heard all of the soaring rhetoric and all of these promises. and now we see what's happening. the way i see it, there are only two explanations. either they were being dishonest or they were just incompetent. frankly, i don't know which one is the worse. >> now, he also said the next time a famous politician comes to iowa, he hopes that iowans will be a little more skeptical, which is, of course, a dig at iowa democrats for selecting barack obama in the caucuses in 2008 and perhaps a warning shot to iowa democrats for 2016, if hillary clinton comes through, martin. >> erin, i know, of course, ryan was on the losing side of the ticket in 2012, was is that going to hurt his chances in iowa coming up? >> not really, no.
4:23 am
because iowans got a chance to see him when he was campaigning in 2012, and he talked a lot about what they learned from that loss in 2012. and generally, republicans at least, tend to value the kind of experience that republicans can get when they make a first presidential run. and it seems that he got a pretty good reception in iowa last night. so it actually shouldn't hurt him at all. >> all right, cnn's erin mcpike, thanks so much for getting up early with us. appreciate it. and if you are just waking up, where have you been. embattled mayor rob ford was the target of last night's "snl". >> the show's cast mocked his admission of smoking crack cocaine and his recent very erratic behavior. we're going to show you all the highlights in case you missed it, right after the break.
