4:02 pm
unmanageable scandal. last week jerry sandusky once considered paterno's heir apparent had sexually abused 15 boys. president obama weighing in on the case saying it should lead to soul searching by all americans not just those at that school. making first public comments last night. obviously what happened was heart-breaking especially for the victims, the young people affected by these assaults, end quote there was no victory for penn state on the football today they lost to nebraska 17-14. david lee miller is outside the stadium in university park, pennsylvania. david lee, what was the mood there today? >> there were a variety of emotions today. sadness, anger and, yes, harris, also a great deal of remorse. what happened today at beaver stadium here on othe penn state campus was really unprecedented in the world of college sports. the interim coach tom bradley entered the stadium to cheers and applause. he shoosk hands with some of
4:03 pm
the fans. he said he hoped that the healing process was now underway. he said that the pregame moment of silence you talked about with members of both teams kneeling down in midfield was, in his words, one of the most powerful moments that he has ever been a part of. there were 107,000 fans in this stadium, that is essentially double the number of people who live in this college town. there was also thousands more who were tailgating outside. we talked with some of the fans. some of them said they were concerned about child abuse. some of them said that they were concerned about coach paterno was not here today. some of them lashed out at the media for coverage of the scandal. here is a sampling of some of the people we talked about. >> first of all, our hearts go out to the victims of the tragedies that happened here at penn state. second of all, we love our team. we support our team entirely. and we're here to cheer on our team. >> are you a joe pa fan or not a joe pa fan. >> are you a joe pa fan.
4:04 pm
>> are you or aren't you. >> get the [bleep] out of this area. >> still a great deal of anger here as i said earlier directed at the media we also heard today from the interim college president rod erickson. he told members of the team that they played with a great deal of heart and character. >> harris: yeah, we are seeing. david lee those emotions are palpable tonight. you mentioned that joe paterno was not there today. so do we know where he was? >> we know that joe paterno was not at his home during the game. he returned home a short time ago. where he watched the game, if he watched the game, we do not know. he sent the team a letter telling them essentially they have to move forward and not to focus on him. and we also heard very briefly today from his son, jay paterno, he is a coach on the team. he was asked if he had the opportunity to spend any time with his father. listen. >> did you talk to your dad before or after the game? >> [inaudible] dropped off a handwritten letter did i not talk to him because i was
4:05 pm
going to get too owe emotional. >> another son said joe paterno would very much like to speak out. so far no press conference of any type has been scheduled. many believe perhaps the next time we hear publicly from joe paterno might very well be in a courtroom when is he a witness in the civil or criminal trial. harris? >> harris: all right, david lee miller with the latest there from the campus. thank you very much. joe paterno getting a lot of attention from all of this. his former coordinator jerry sandusky the one actually facing criminal charges. jerry sandusky accused of abusing eight children. he apparently met the boys through a charity he founded called the second mile. a program for troubled children. usually from broken homes. police arrested sandusky last weekend but a grand jury was investigating him for a year and a half. his next court appearance scheduled for december. and don't miss "fox news sunday." anchor chris wallace will talk with pennsylvania governor tom
4:06 pm
corbett. and with penn state legend and nfl hall of famer franco harris. he was the state attorney general in 2009 when the sandusky investigation began. harris as you may know played for paterno at penn state and said he is disappointed in the school's decision to fire the coach. must see "fox news sunday" tomorrow morning. check your listings. fox news is america's election headquarters and republic presidential contenders getting ready for the so-called commander and chief debate. set to kick off in less than an hour from now in the key early voting state of south carolina. g.o.p. candidates expected to focus on our nation's foreign and defense policies. a lot at stake for two republic rivals in particular. texas governor rick perry who spent much of this week explaining an awkward moment in the last debate perry forgot one of three federal agencies he says he would like to get rid of if elected president. herman cain still fighting to contain the fallout from
4:07 pm
sexual harassment accusations. campaign carl as we like to call him live in spartanburg, north carolina tonight. mitt romney might turn his background into a foreign policy asset, i understand? >> sure. mitt romney was one-term governor of massachusetts. don't get a lot of foreign policy experience with that he doesn't emphasize his political experience on the stump these days. all about job creation and business experience as a millionaire businessman for years in the private sector. that's what he will do tonight saying he has plenty of experience internationally when it comes to the global economy and the monetary system in countries like italy and greece with their potential economic meltdowns. he will try characterize himself as perfectly well equipped to be the nation's president under those circumstances. romney does have an awful lot of baggage to carry. he hasn't spent a lot of time in south carolina. entirely likely he will have a big target on his back from the rest of the campaign rivals in part because the polls suggest that he is by 45% the one that most republicans think will ultimately be the nominee. rick perry also has a huge,
4:08 pm
huge hill to climb tonight. that mistake he made on wednesday night in michigan when he forgot some of his own policy is something he has to live down. as the governor of texas, he does have the ability to claim foreign policy experience because is he a border state with mexico. and that could actually have him on defense. his rivals have criticized him for opposing a full border fence and suggested that texas has become magnet for illegal immigration because of his policy to provide education tore illegal immigrants. commander in chief in a difficult and troubled world. could find criticism from his rivals for policies in texas it relates to mexico. >> bumpy week for herman cain. tonight's debate focuses on what critics have said is one of his weak spots. particularly foreign policy. >> well, true. and, yet, herman cain himself has acknowledged that he does not have great deal of foreign policy experience. he has answered questions in previous debates saying i just don't know the answer to that but i will attack it like a true problem solver, analyzing
4:09 pm
the problem. figuring out the solution and moving forward. that's a difficult posture to take in a presidential debate to say i really don't know the answers but i will figure out a way to go forward on it he has to do something to turn the page and close the door on the sexual harassment allegations that have dogged his candidacy for the last two weeks. heading into the third week of this he really needs to put it away. strong performance on foreign policy could go a long way to do that the other person to watch tonight is newt gingrich. he has been telling people in south carolina and elsewhere that tonight is his moment. that this debate plays to his wheel house. that he can hit it out of the park because of his command of complex issues. international, forn policy. is he historian and been in the arena for so long. one thing people don't realize is newt gingrich has been a member of a very obscure organization called the president's intention advisory board back in republic administrations. made aware of classified intelligence and advising the president in various different eras on a whole host of complex issues. he has a lot of experience tonight.
4:10 pm
look for him to try to flex his intellect muscles and get a leg up on his rivals. >> harris: looking for that debate in 45 minutes to start. he is surging right now, a real quick thought on that? >> well, he has got to surge a lot and there is not a lot of time. the truth of the matter is we are now just seven weeks away from the first caucuses in iowa. when you take out the holidays and weekends which aren't very effective for campaign days. only about real 30 business days of campaigning to do. while newt gingrich has momentum in the polls and looks forward to a big performance tonight. he also needs money and he needs to work this time very economically. it's running out, harris? >> harris: and your light apparently is running out as well. >> running out too. >> harris: is he a shining star. we appreciate it, carl. thanks very much. now let's move on to europe, italy, a political standoff over there. silvio berlusconi giving into the pressure and stepping down. his resignation comes one day after italy's senate passed a new budget with critical
4:11 pm
spending cuts which ultimately helped that country dodge a full financial meltdown. investors likely to keep a close eye on italy in the coming days and weeks as the new government takes shape. no surprise there because, as europe's fourth largest economy italy's success could make or break a global recovery and impact the markets here at home. we have seen some of that already recently with greece. greg burke live tonight in rome with some the day's details. >> silvio berlusconi is a guy obsessed with image from the way he dresses, from the way his businesses are run. you can only think that he must really be terrible when he is thinking about the kind of exit he had to make tonight. he could have never planned something that bad. wild separations in rome. berlusconi is one of those politicians who people either love or hate. and left wingers who had been beaten so badly by him, so often over the past 17 years sort of getting their revenge
4:12 pm
this evening when he finally did resign. for silvio berlusconi a bitter pill. major player in this country for the past 20 years. while he did lose parts of his coalition over the past few months, also had these various trials and scan tells, -- can scandals. it was this economic crisis that took the toll on him and his administration. an economics professor a former european union commissioner for competition. he is he expected to get a mandate tomorrow to form a new government. what they are calling a technical government. now, that's interesting because in italy it's very hard that anything be really above politics. they will try to do that but in the end there will be a lot of political wrangling there. it will be an uphill struggle for monty, certainly. finally, harris, it's interesting. italy is certainly divided over berlusconi that you saw with those celebrations. a lot of people happy to see
4:13 pm
him go. people at home wishing he was still in power as journalists certainly we are going to miss him. there are not a lot of politicians who give you a chance to talk about bunga bunga sex parties. harris? >> harris: okay, greg burke, thank you very much. it sounded surreal. a major league baseball player kidnapped in venezuela way la, just a couple of days ago. new tonight, wilson ramos, starting catcher for the washington nationals is alive and home with an incredible story to tell as we learn more about who actually snatched him. and shoppers and sales clerks left in shock. police on the hunt for this woman captured on surveillance video. she is their suspect after some convenience store victims say she walked up to them and bit them on the neck. vampire style. they say they have the scars to prove it. stay with us. >> she started shaking like a pit bull that just got a piece of steak. how about making it b.
