their debt to society spending much of their day carving wooden toys for the toys for to thes charity. bringing holiday cheer to needy kids. they hope to create more than 300 wooden ducks, boats and patrol cars this year. >> reporter: these nice i like the wooden toys. jon: gives them somethi helps the kids out. it's a win, win. thank you for joining us today. >> reporter: "america live" starts right now. bye. megyn: we start with fox news alert on this tragic fallout from a radio prank. today it's getting global attention. a british nurse duped in a hoax involving the dutchess of cambridge has been found dead of an apparent suicide. welcome to "america live," i'm alisyn camerota in for megyn kelly today. here is prince william and his wife kate leaving the hospital after she was treated for severe morning sickness.
10:01 am
a couple of days before they left a pair of australian shock jocks called the hospital pretending to be the queen of england and they tricked this nurse into divulging sensitive information into kate's condition. that nurse has taken her own life. trace gallagher is live in the west coast newsroom. what more do we know. >> reporter: scotland yard says there is no signs of foul play. all evidence points to suicide. when the story first broke we thought it was the receptionist who first transferred the call who had killed herself. but in fact it was the nurse. she worked at king edward hospital for four years. listen now to the hospital. >> the hospital had been supporting her through this very difficult time. she was a first class nurse who cared diligently for hundreds of patients during her time with us. >> reporter: when those two deejays were first making their phone call they had no idea that
10:02 am
neither of them would get through. they had a horrible accent, and they thought that everybody else was trying the same prank. listen now to how this whole thing began. play this. >> hello, good morning,. >> hello there, could i please speak to kate, please my granddaughter. >> yes, just hold on, ma'am. >> thank you. >> are they putting us through? >> yes. [laughter] >> reporter: they were then transferred to the nurse who went onto give a very detailed update on kate's status. out of respect for the nurse we are not going to play that audio. the hospital as you might imagine was irate, the queen was not happy, and the australian radio station apologized that station by the way is already on probation for airing three other inappropriate segments. now the segment the deejays, the ones who were in the call also apologized saying and i'm quoting here, we were very
10:03 am
surprised that our call was put through. we thought we'd be hung up on as soon as they heard our terrible accents, we are very sorry if we caused any issues. but then later the deejays learned that their prank was being played all over the world, and they started promoting it all over again. listen to this. >> and this happened today. hoax teres called pretending to be the king and queen. >> they rang queen edward the 7th hospital to check on kate r-ps position and they managed to get put through to kate's ward. >> they were the worst accents ever. when we made the phone call we were sure a hundred people at least before us would have tried the same thing. >> reporter: by the way it's 4:00 in the morning in sidney on a saturday morning. there has been no response at all from the deejays regarding this breaking news, but we can tell you now, that their twitter accounts have been taken down.
10:04 am
prince william and kate have also offered their condolances to the nurse, and in all fairness a couple of days ago when this broke megyn and i were laughing at the fact that this phone call actually got through, and so were a lot of other people, now now we have this horrible, heart wrenching ending to this prank. >> reporter: of course. to hear the accents originally was funny. now it's traeupblg. for more otragic. we can glow live to london, they are stunned. we will speak with a doctor about how public humiliation can become deadly. this is fox news alert, because we are just getting word within the last hour that protestors have broken through a military barricade at the presidential palace. the number of government opponents is growing throughout the day here in cairo. they are plunging the country of egypt into even deeper turmoil. large crowds venting their furry against president mohammed morsi
10:05 am
and what they call his power grab, also rejecting his calls for a dialog to end the crisis. the violence there getting the attention of the white house. egypt is considered a vital american interest because of the peace treaty it maintains with israel. we have more on this ahead. but first, all right we are also tracking a developing story in syria. where new video shows the rebels slowly gaining ground in the battle for damascus. they've scored a series of tactical skwreubgt tree tactic tactical victories, and declaring the damascus international airport a military zone. fierce street battles are breaking out as you can see here from the video. the "associated press" released this amateur video and said it seems to core respond with news accounts from the city. foxess conor powell is covering syria live from our mideast bureau. what is the latest. >> reporter: as part of this sur push to topple the bashar
10:06 am
al-assad we've seen heavy fighting in damascus, particularly around the airport. rebels are focusing in on that area. in the past three or four days we've seen all international flights in and out of the airport canceled. rebels have issued a warning saying civilians should leave the area. they've declared it a military zone. if rebels do take that airport it would be a major defeat for the bashar al-assad. it would cut off an important supply line for the bashar al-assad regime which relies on that airport to get supplies in and out. there are reports the rebels have gained access to heavy syrian tanks and other heavy weapons. much of the fighting is street to street, block to block, house to house, urban combat at its worst. hillary clinton says the events in syria are accelerating, and both sides are talking about some way to try to find some type of resolution to this war in syria that has lasted nearly two years long. russia a big supporter of the
10:07 am
bashar al-assad, the russian foreign minister met with secretary clinton in bu dublin. she felt the meeting upbeat thinking there may be a come proeu myself in th compromise in the future. right now there is nothing concrete and syrians continue to die. >> reporter: with every step forward the opposition makes in syria it raises concerns that a cornered president bashar al-assad could be more likely to use those chemical weapons that are apparently loaded and ready to drop. lieutenant general tom mcnerney is a fox news military analyst and served as vice chief of staff of the united states air force. thanks so much for being here. intelligence reports suggest that bashar al-assad is making moves to putting together and readying these chemical weapons. you'll remember that president obama in august said that he would consider that a red line, and the u.s. would have to get involved if bashar al-assad were to do that. do you think that the u.s.
10:08 am
stance is the same today? >> well, i think it is, allison, and it's getting very critical because with damascus being surrounded, or about to be surrounded, the potential, the airport as was just reported, that that may be put out of business, bashar al-assad is getting desperate and he may go to his last option which would be chemical weapons, sarin gas. we have good intelligence that they are loading up aircraft. they have moved the munition -gs from thmahmoudijah admonitions from the eug lieu igloos, where they are stored. it's a very difficult situation. nato leading from the front must get involved. we cannot let those weapons get in the hands of hezbollah, hamas, al-qaida. >> reporter: if the u.s. were to get involved ornate tow, what would that look like? >> i would not have a large footprint as you've heard some
10:09 am
people in the pentagon say 75,000 troops. i think we can use a smaller footprint, use air power, put a no-fly zone over syria, go in and seize those. there are four or five primary locations, and they are scattered about, but seize those locations with the smaller force and destroy those weapons in place. that is a complex operation, but we do not want to get involved with counterinsurgency, nation building or anything like that. but we will have to tell bashar al-assad that he will go down if he goes any further, because once we put a no-fly zone over syria they are finished. and it's very easy for us to put a no-fly zone over there, ali, as well as to project a nato quick reaction force, because it's right next to turkey, a nato member, and that could be accomplished very quickly.
10:10 am
>> reporter: i've also heard other experts say that were bashar al-assad to use chemical weapons he would instantly become an international pariah. what do you think the likelihood of this is? >> well i think he's an international pariah right now, and that probably will not stop him. it will have an impact, and clearly where he can seek asylum is going to be important, whether it's in iran, whether it's venezuela, whether it's russia. you've heard all these different locations. the fact is, is he is on the way out. it is deteriorating very rapidly right now, and i think that he's seeing the handwriting on the wall, and even if he does capitulate, nato does need to seize those locations where those weapons of mass destruction are. >> reporter: thank you so much for your expertise, it's a very scary situation what is happening there and it's changing by the hour. we appreciate you coming in. >> thafpblgts.
10:11 am
>> reporter: there are new concerns this week that america is quietly plunging into a new housing crisis as the federal agency that guarantees millions of mortgages finds itself billions of dollars in the red. in three minutes we'll see if we are on the brink of yet another big bailout. and a new legal challenge for george stkeupl r he's filing a lawsuit against the tv network that he says made him out to be a racist in the hopes of turning around its ratings. and as america marks the solemn anniversary of the pearl harbor attack that occurred actually 71 years ago today some of the same troops that survived the surprise bombing will honor their fallen friends and we'll introduce you to one special group of vets receiving some extra attention. >> the japanese fleet dispatching its dive bombers for their sneak attack on pearl harbor. in a distraught and troubled world, these pictures call to every american, it must never happen again. caught bike sitting ducks, the

10:14 am
10:15 am
alisyn: there is growing concern this week that the u.s. could be headed toward some sort of new housing crisis. this after a report revealed that the federal housing administration, which insured nearly 16% of home purchases last year is about $16 billion in the red as losses from mortgage failures pileup. that has washington worried about another bailout, and homeowners worried about the market. jeri willis from the fox business network joins us. they are $16 billion in the red, the fha is what does it mean. >> reporter: taxpayers could be on the hook for this money. let me give you an idea of what is going on here. the federal housing administration insures, it backs these mortgage loans as you know we had the big mortgage meltdown, huge crisissess, values plummeted, people lost
10:16 am
their homes. currently the fha stands behind 1.1 trillion in mortgage debt. one one in six of those loans deliquent. one in ten in default. they are facing just a tsunami of bad debt, and once more there is more in the pipeline that we don't even know about. alisyn: i don't have to tell you that the public appetite for bailouts. >> reporter: not high. alisyn: very small. if they don't get a bailout what happens to the country and the housing market? >> reporter: that is not an option i don't think. look, if they aren't able to correct this in some way, fix it in so way they are headed for a bailout situation. alisyn: how do they correct it or fix it, just with an infusion of money. >> reporter: i tell you what they've done so far, they've raised premiums. consumers who get the backing have to pay more money for it. they could raise that again. they are selling offer bad debt as fast as they can to low bidders who want to buy it. we will not know if taxpayers are on the hook until next september when the administration writes its annual budget. then we'll have an idea of just
10:17 am
how bad it is. the markets could turn around, remember, what we're talking about is not actual losses, but presumed losses, why? because these mortgage insurance is what they are going to have to pay if these folks lose their homes. alisyn: what -- bailout or no bail out what does it do for the housing market? does it have a ripple affect. >> reporter: there is something of a ripple affect. the housing market is trying desperately to recover, we see improvements all over the country. any little bad thing could set it back whether it's not being able to deduct mortgage insurance, whether it's this kind of thing. we are hoping that the housing market gets better because that really makes the entire economy go. alisyn: is the problem that the fha facing still about low-income borrowers, the very demographic that got them in trouble with mortgages to begin with? >> reporter: there is a whole lot of that. you see it up and down the spectrum. you see wealthy people who ended up in homes they shouldn't have pwougtd. it was mone bought.
10:18 am
money was so easy to get. the housing market isn't recovering because you can't get money to pweufplt the interest rates so low, lots of product out there on the market place to buy. can you get a loan? maybe not. >> it's so hard to get a mortgage even with all of these great rates. when can that turn around? >> reporter: you think if the economy would pick up and employment recovered, as soon as people get jobs and they start getting a paycheck, they can make all their bills then they start thinking about buying that next house or maybe upgrading. a lot of people aren't upgrading right now because they are underwater in their mortgage, they owe more than theworth. they are sitting tight until something improves. it's a real got ya climate in housing. we are seeing signals of improvements. fewer foreclosures. the one thing that would put pedal to the metal in this market is if unemployment got better. alisyn: selling the idea of a bailout if that's what it would
10:19 am
take to fix the fha can capitol hill pull this off? >> reporter: i think there would be so much anger over this. i just -- maybe there is some trick the treasury can pull where they, you know, they do one of their things where they are just printing money, maybe it's something like that. i've got to tell you i don't see any appetite at all from the american people for any bailout. alisyn: monopoly money is always a solution. thank you so much. >> reporter: thank you. alisyn: a big surprise at the national tree lighting ceremony when the performer suggests that president obama may find a lump of coal in his stocking. we'll tell you exactly what the singer said about the president's efforts at bi-partisanship and whether he has a point. a new legal challenge for george zimmerman as he takes on nbc universal. the man charged in the killing of teenager trayvon martin accusing the tv network of deceptively damaging his character for the sake of their ratings. a man taking matters into his own hands and trying to pull
10:20 am
over a police officer. why he's pleading not guilty and saying he has no regrets. >> you're required by law to wear a seatbelt. put your dam seatbelt over. pull it over. pull your vehicle over, you understand me. now. who the hell do you think you are? pull your -- [bleep ] over.
10:21 am
10:22 am
10:23 am
alisyn: we have a crazy video clip to show you out of michigan today where a driver, frustrated by what he says is a double standard among police officers takes matters into his own hands. >> you are required by law to wear your seatbelt. put your dam seatbelt on. pull it over. pull your vehicle over, you
10:24 am
understand me? now. who the hell do you think you are? pull your. [bleep] over. >> that is steve mclane. he feels strong about this. he's an every day sit even seven twraoeug to pul trying to pull over a detroit police officer who is not wearing his seatbelt. he snapped when the officer laughed off his request, and the officer sped away. he wants the officers to follow the same rules. he could face three months in jail for reckless driving. the citizen cop has pleaded not guilty to the charge and he has no regrets about this incident. he is due back in court next week. there are new developments in a legal challenge for george zimmerman as he takes on nbc universal. zimmerman is charged in the killing of the teenager trayvon martin earlier this year. now he's suing the tv met work
10:25 am
for airing an edited version of a 911 call from that night, an edit that zimmerman's attorney claims deceptively made zimmerman appear to be a quote, racist predatory villain. a lot of people saw this suit coming, trace. >> reporter: when this first broke and we got a copy of the call that george zimmerman made to police dispatch it was four minutes long. you had to make it clear that this was a much bigger and broader conversation. the media often accused of taking things out of context, they seldom do but in this case it clearly was. nba acknowledged at the time firing three employees and apologizing. listen now to the clip that nbc ran at least three different times. play it. >> this guy looks like he's up to no good. he looks black. >> reporter: he looks black. now listen if you will to what george zimmerman actually said
10:26 am
in context. >> this guy looks like he's up to no good, or he's on drugs or something. it's raining and he's just walking around looking about. >> okay, this guy is he white, black or hispanic? >> he looks black. >> reporter: so in the lawsuit george zimmerman says and i'm quoting here, nbc saw the death of trayvon martin not as a tragedy but as an opportunity to increase ratings and so set about to create the myth that george zimmerman was a racist, and a predatoryvill predatory villian. nbc at the time investigated the incident and said it was simply a mistake that they were not trying tow skew the story. nbc issued a statement saying and i'm quoting here. we strongly disagree with the accusations made in the complaint. there was no intent to portray mr. zimmerman unfairly, we intend to vigorously defend our position in court. we should note that george zimmerman is now seeking an
10:27 am
undisclosed amount of money in this lawsuit. ali. alisyn: we will keep an eye on that story for everyone. thanks. there was a surprise at the national tree lighting ceremony when a performer offered president obama a pw*eupt of unsolicited political advice. we'll show you what he said and debate it with our panel. plus a juvenile prank turns tragic when the victim of a high profile hoax involving britain's royal family turns up dead. we have reaction from the uk and asked if the public ridicule may have played a role in this heartbreaking turn of events. one of our most important allies at risk of losing the democracy that people died for a couple of years ago. we'll look at the future of egypt and what will happen if one of america's most important allies implodes.

10:31 am
alisyn: fox news alert for you right now. the congressional budget office just announced that the federal budget deficit for the last two months hit $292 billion. if we were to keep spending more than we take in at that rate america would add another $1.7 trillion to the national debt by this time next year. ironically this comes just about one hour after republican house speaker john boehner held a news conference suggesting that the president has been unwilling to compromise on a deal to cut our debt and complaining about washington's, quote, spending program. >> there are a lot of things
10:32 am
that are possible to put the revenue that the president seeks on the table, but none of it is going to be possible if the president insists on his position. insists on my way or the highway. that's not the way to get to an agreement that i think is important for the american people and very important for our economy. alisyn: the bitter partisan fight over the debt deal even came up in a surprising way at last night's national tree lighting ceremony in washington. during a rendition of santa claus is coming to town one of the musicians paused and started talking to president obama. let's watch. >> you all be good this year? [yeah ] >> i don't know. y'all been good this year? [yeah] >> how about you mr. president, you've been good? i don't know, i don't know. you might be able to use a little more golf with some republicans, you ought to get
10:33 am
out there some more, bridge the gap. watch him, would you ladies, keep an eye on him. alisyn: has the president done enough to bridge the gap as the musician said. alan colmes is the host of the combs domes radio show. mike gallagher is a syndicated radio host and fox news contributor. hello, gentlemen. >> hi. >> hi, ali. alisyn: that was the musician of the band the fray. his name is isaac slayed. he asked the president have you been naughty or nice when it comes to compromise. is that appropriate. >> absolutely it's appropriate. i haven't heard of isaac or whatever the group is called. alisyn: the fray. >> i'm becoming the vice president of the fray fan club. i tell you this guy is to be commended for standing there and gently reminding the president you're not much of a compromise, you're not somebody who reaches across the aisle. since you play so much golf mr. president why don't you play a little more golf with republicans and come up with a way to fix this as we just heard
10:34 am
on fox news 800 billion-dollar deficit. i mean this is out of control. the president doesn't show a whole lot of inclination to want to compromise. listen, behind closed doors, i speak to republican leaders who not for bluster, not for showmanship, they express their deep frustration at the president's unwillingness to compromise or to talk to them, or to sit down at the negotiating table with them. hey i don't know who he is but i want his music, i'll start playing it morning, noon and night. alisyn: it sounds like mike is saying that he thinks that this lead singer was just channeling sort of the desires of millions of americans who would like to see more compromise this christmas season. is that how you interpret it? >> i think the singer was challenging mike, mike gallagher, and all of a sudden he's fallen in love with this musician. i bet if it were the dixie chicks performing and the president had been a conservative and some liberal performer started lecturing the
10:35 am
president of the united states you, mike would not be so sang withi sanguin, oh i love this performer i'm going to get his cd's now. you wouldn't have such a positive reaction of lecturing the president. >> how embarrassing for the president to invite a performer there and then to be scolded and chided, i mean listen this is just emphasizing the fact that the president isn't willing to compromise. alisyn: hold on. i do want to bring up something that alan just touched on there, mike, which is have we now got even to such a partisan climate that everywhere is fair game for a political statement? it could be at the annual tree lighting, it could be at the dinner table, a holiday setting, these places that used to be politics free zones are we past that now, mike? >> it's just beginning. i think it's going to get worse over the next four years. i mean, listen, my side, the loyal opposition isn't going to miss every opportunity we can to challenge and to battle for what
10:36 am
we believe in, and listen if an entertainer at the white house christmas tree lighting ceremony can't resist a little jab at the president. and alan is right by the way, listen we didn't like it when the dixie chicks disrespected george bush the way they did on foreign soil by saying -- >> this is not disrespect? >> what that you should compromise? >> no, no, no, we are talking about the notion of you're invited to the white house, you're a performer, you're an invited guest and you start lecturing the president. you know mike if it were a liberal performer lecturing a conservative president you'd be outraged. you'd be going crazy, you just like the message and you don't care how or where it's delivered. it doesn't matter to you. >> i think negotiation is a positive thing mr. colmes. you and i negotiate and sit down at the table every friday. imagine we saying, alan you shouldn't talk to mike on. alisyn: back to that larger issue, do you think the president has been open enough
10:37 am
to compromise? >> yes, i do. alisyn: how is that. >> first of all he's compromised all over the place. he compromised on healthcare, he compromised all throughout. the reason we haven't gone back to the clinton tax rates and never honored the sunset provisions of the bush tax cuts was because the president continued to give republicans what they wanted, time and time again. he's compromised so much that a lot of progressives are a little upset that he's compromised so much. alisyn: the fiscal cliff in particular. >> we got to the fiscal cliff because you had a bunch of republicans who wanted not to work with this president. now you've got republicans all of a sudden saying they are not going to take tax pledges like grover more question is wants, they are open to revenue enhancement. if they had said that two years ago or one year ago moody's wouldn't have lowered the pwhopbd ratinbond rating of the united states. they've created such uncertainty. alisyn: now that we are at the 11th hour where do you think we are now. >> i know that alan hasn't had a lot of private conversations with republican lawmakers, but
10:38 am
take it from somebody who has. >> you don't know. >> these guys feel he will feel stymied, frustrated. they are not in the door. it's not even about compromising, that isn't even the right word. open the door, let's sit down and try to bargain and negotiate. he doesn't do that. alisyn: moving back to what the singer from the fray say. wouldn't it help for the president to invite the republicans instead of this adversarial conference room table, why not go play golf. >> i agree with you. the question is whether or not an invited performer to the white house is the right message deliverer for that sentiment. i thought that was what the issue is. whether he's right or wrong is another issue, but is that the right venue to do it? now you've got john boehner who asks for a one-on-one meeting with the president so they can negotiate directly think i think is a good idea. it's not a matter of inviting republicans to the white house. john boehner has said let's put everybody else aside and let's you and i speak and i think that is a good idea. >> i just hope the fray has a
10:39 am
christmas album. i'm going to buy a hundred of them give them out to everybody i know. i don't know what kind of music they do, i don't know who isaac is but i love this group. alisyn: for every fray cd i'm buying addictionee chick. >> i bet you would. alisyn: that's great. they are both great bands. thanks so much, gentlemen for coming in and debating music. meanwhile, fallout from a dorm room argument could land one college student behind bars. we've got the details and this story. a stunning turn of events as lawmakers in one heavily unionized state approve some sweeping rights to work laws. and while these are expected to attract jobs in michigan the powerful unions say they are not going down without a fight. up next, the team of big cat experts who were held up by the taliban, lost in a dust storm and nearly killed by a rock slide before catching one of the most illusive animals on the face of the earth. my doctor told me calcium

11:01 am
74.5%. that's a sharp drop from last month and the lowest level we have seen since the move august. experts say it could be the sail mate in washington around the fiscal cliff that's causing th this. chris stirewalt is our host of power play on live. this consumer confidence report shows the levels have plunges to the lowest in five months. is this getting any play in washington or was all the talk about the jobs numbers and unemployment rates? >> the jobs numbers weren't good enough to overshadow too much. but the reality in washington is this. that regardless of how bad things are getting right now, and regardless of how much they are scaring the rest of the
11:02 am
country, they seem dead set on going over the cliff right now and it will take a lot more than panicking consumers before they change their minds. alisyn: melissa francis is the host of "money" on the fox news business network. explain what consumer confidence means and why it's so bad. >> a lot of it has to do with the fiscal cliff. but as you look deeper into these numbers and the questions they were asking, a lot of people respond saying they feel like taxes are going up count road and that made them nervous about the economy. so they understand no matter how this shakes out. there is something coming down the road that's going to have a stalling effect on the economy and we are looking at so many people out of work. we are talking about the unemployment number. that doesn't even catch the number we are talking about. all the people out there who are
11:03 am
unemployed. plus all the people working part time and wish they had more work because they need more money. that's 23 million people are totally unemployed or need to work more to make ends meet. that's a big reason why we are seeing confidence fall. alisyn: do you think the days after a presidential election are normally filled with promise, the promise of better days ahead. there is a high from election? but this with the consumer confidence plunging how do you make sense of it so soon after the elections? >> it was a miserable election. wasn't it. the whole time we had a small conversation. the president ran a pretty negative campaign and didn't win a mandate on big stuff. he did talk about his desire to increase taxes which may go to melissa's point.
11:04 am
but after an elect like this. there isn't that goodwill. there isn't that kind of national coming together that you might have seen for, say, bill clinton or ronald reagan and their reelection. people are pretty bummed out. alisyn: tell us what the larger issue is. does this mean people won't be spending as much on christmas gifts in how do it translate to what it means to the economy? >> it's always hard to reconcile how people feel and how they act. we know you may feel like you shouldn't spend a lot of money but when push comes to showf end up buying an extra gift. soy don't think it means christmas is doomed. but like you were saying before. people are not feeling hopeful about what's going on and they are not alone. when i talk to economists they are wondering, is this the new normal. you have roughly 150,000 people finding jobs.
11:05 am
is its lauded as a good thing, in the past you would see 200,000 to 300,000 people every month finding a new job. at this rate it will take nine years to get back to the employment rates we had before the recession. you have got to wonder if this malaise is the new normal. and that's kind of depressing. alisyn: if this pessimism is connected to the fiscal cliff, chris, they could resolve this. the clock is ticking. do you have any sense from inside the beltway of any movement? >> reporter: no, the democrats decide wad they want to do is go over the cliff because they will be in a better position on negotiating. the taxes will already goim and they will feel like they are in a better position to negotiate after that. so they are starting to feel plucky. the problem is as melissa says. the industries are pulling back -- they are dog in

resources which sets us up for a dire first quarter of next year as we jump off the cliff. >> we have seen this before. with the debt ceiling debates, sometimes capitol hill and the white house should bring us right up to the edge, the 11th hour and lo and behold they have a deal. >> reporter: she they show up with deals they put together with chicken wire and bubble gum and duct tape and that's about what it's worth. i think the american people expect this. we have had uncertainty after uncertainty. when it gets resolved we don't see the upswing it was obama-care it waltz. >> i recollection. then it was the fiscal cliff. there is always something out there holding companies back. i think this means this is the new normal. we have a distrust of washington. we are not sure the economy will get better and it's kinds of every man for himself.
11:07 am
alisyn: thanks so much. the economy is the focus of a debate in michigan where an historic employment bill is about to become law. mike tow tobin is live from chicago. >> reporter: the point republicans are trying to sell is this does not target collective bargaining. all the legislation does according to republicans is make optional union dues and union membership for everyone other than police and firefighters. union members say it attacks their foundation and in all places, michigan, the cradle of organized labor. >> you will have people that will be working right alongside of you that will not have to pay union dues that you pay union dues but will still be able to get all the benefits from being
11:08 am
a union member. >> reporter: unlike the drawnout labor standoffs we have seen. this moved rapidly through the legislature during the lame duck session. republicans have the numbers. the demonstrations got ugly with eight people arrested and pepper spray. they insist republicans violated open meeting laws by keeping the demonstrators out of the chambers. and they will challenge the language in this legislation. alisyn: tune into "your world" with neil cavuto at rick snyder joins neil on his latest on the right to work fight. where he sees this issue going amid widespread opposition. we are getting reports

opposition protesters broke through military barricades surrounded can the presidential palace a couple hours ago. hundreds getting through. once the barbed wire was caught, some climbing onto army tanks, others head together walls of the palace. this happening a day after mohamed morsi spoke to the nation, refusing to back down from his power grab. 7 are now dead and 700 are injured. this crisis is in its third week in a country that is critical to keeping peace in the region. >> reporter: alisyn, it was 24 hours since the egyptian president mohamed morsi addressed his country. as we can see it is a country that's still sharply divide at this hour. thousands and thousands are on the street today in tahrir
11:10 am
square and also outside the presidential palace demonstrating against the president. as you just reported, we did see a number of protesters breaking through barricades outside the presidential palace. but what's noting is that things are still relatively peaceful, especially when you consider the bloodshed that we saw wednesday. the demonstrators are calling on morsi to sideline a decree giving himself extra powers. and in addition to the protest today this was also a day of funerals. where some of those who died in the recent clashes. three members of the muslim brotherhood, the group that brought morsi to power were buried. the president is democratically he lectd and they accuse the opposition of being tray towards and want to destabilize the country. unrest we are witnessing is not
11:11 am
just limited to the egyptian capital of cairo. there have been demonstrations through the the country and the last few hours we saw demonstrations in egypt's second largest city. you see anti-morsi protesters taking to the streets. in a late-breaking development we are getting word that egypt's election committee has announced egyptians living outside of the country are going to have to wait a few more days to vote in the referendum on a new constitution. they were supposed to start voting as soon as tomorrow, egyptians living outside the country. we are now told they are going to have to wait until wednesday. it's very possible this change in voting for egyptian ex-pats could show a change in a willingness on morsi's part to try to modify or change the draft amendment. we'll have to wait and see. the dialogue is scheduled for
11:12 am
tomorrow. alisyn: that's an interesting development. please keep us posted. new developments in the prank that sparked this national outrage. now there is a tragedy connected to this prank phone call and it's getting global attention when the victim of this high-profile hoax involving britain's royal family has turned up dead. we'll get reaction from the u.k. and ask fit was public humiliation that may have played the biggest role in this heartbreaking turn of events. men, women and children running as a massive earthquake hits japan. marking a huge milestone in space. it's been 40 years since the last mission lifted off for the moon. apollo 15's moon walker sits down with me next. ♪

11:17 am
called the hospital where the differences was being treated for acute morning sickness. they preterngded to queen elizabeth and they tricked the nurse to transferring them to the private nurse who cave out sensitive information. >> what was being treated even by prince charles yesterday as a bit of a joke has turned today into a deep tragedy. 10 hours or so ago police were called to a nurse's accommodations just a few yards from the hospital where jacintha saldanha was found dying. she was unconscious. attempts were made to revive her by she sadly died at the scene. it's emerged she was one of two victims at hot of this prank call from the two radio presenters in australia two days ago. since there was the woman -- she
11:18 am
was a nurse look after the switchboard who took the call from the radio presenters and she clearly believed she was talking to the queen of england. she put the call through to the nurse on kate's ward. and details were passed to the prank callers of kate's treatment. how she was getting better from the treatment she had had during her stay in the hospital over a few days it was treated as a bit of a joke. but tonight it's changed dramatically. there have been statement from the radio station in australia about their deep shock at death of this woman. the police are saying they are dates unexplained but there are clear indications this woman took her own life and a clear link is being made to herring about the victim of the prank and her death this morning.

alisyn: as we get new reaction from england's royal family to the apparent suicide of a nurse who was duped by two dejays looking to prank call the duchess of came bridge. let's bring in our psychiatrist, dr. grover. is there something about public humiliation on a grand scale as this nurse experienced it was revealed that she was duped by these disc jockeys and she put the call through to the princess and possibly revealed sensitive information, because it was so public, does that make people feel possibly more suicidal than if it had happened in private? >> thanks, alisyn. guilt and shame are both powerful motivators of suicide.
11:24 am
when you put the public factor into it it makes it a lot worse. i think the fact that this poor woman did take her own life was a result of her guilt and shame and the fact that it was done in such a public fashion. alisyn: why is it that the public fashion makes it so much harder to recover after something like this. i think of stories when teenagers have been humiliated on youtube or facebook by a friend who put an embarrassing picture up. we heard of teenagers take their lives. what is it about it going public that makes it so painful? >> when we talk about the story i'm often remind of the story of tyler clemente, the young man who jumped off the george washington bridge when he was humiliated in a public fashion. the public humiliation amplifies that feeling of shame and make the person feel not only do i
11:25 am
feel like i have done a bad thing, but all these millions of people know i have done a bad thing. for some people it's too much to bear. >> i think of some other pranks pulled by disc jockeys. they, too, were harmful. there were a famous pair of disc jockeys had a prank where they announced the mayor had died in a car accident. and his daughter called into the station frantic and terrified. these pranks get out of control. and there has to be a lesson here, but i'm not sure what it is. >> i think it comes down to the foreseeability. it's fine to put a prank and someone, but never know who you are going to get as a victim on the other side of the prank. what might seem funny could you would not seem funny if you were the victim of the prank.
11:26 am
alisyn: for anyone listening who night have a teenager in their life, what do you say to someone, not a teenager, someone if they do feel humiliated. how can you talk them off the ledge. you have to go to the people that love you and support and try to have an open line of communication and know you should reach out to those people before you do anything. what see you side is is the feeling of losing options. the feeling of knowing there is no way out and you are trapped it's important to reach out to people who can support you to get you through something like this. dr. daniel bo ber, thank you for coming in with your expertise. >> after the election of jimmy carter. alexander young went to washington, d.c. and he came back home with some bacon.

11:28 am
and music. it seemed like the center of the universe. the fear is that the state review will show the city is broke. the way the city can avoid filing bankruptcy is to come to terms with their unions and creditors with their pensions and healthcare and other obligations. detroit is over $2 billion in debt and experts say it's unlikely they are going to come to terms. it also does not look like the president or the big banks will come to the rescue. chapter 9 is very expensive and it's a last ditch effort because it will lead to money going out the door and also to a lot of chaos. it's legally giving detroit about six months to get its books in order, to get its financial house in order. but if this review shows the city is in fact very cash strapped, well then it could speed up the entire bankruptcy process and we know for a fact

11:34 am
keane. he's also a fox news military analyst. thanks for being here. there are pro morsi demonstrators and anti-morsi protesters. and they seem as though they are deadlocked. is it overstating it to say that that country is deciding between a hard line islamist rule versus a democracy? >> make no mistake about it it's a huge power grab. morsi is trying to consolidate his power much like his predecessor. an has the christians and the liberal reformers and secularists opposing him. but he has a powerful ally. the military. he ransacked all the leaders back in august. and he appointed new leaders sort of with the permission of the officer corps that was not going to object. they are backing him and that's
11:35 am
a powerful ally that he has. alisyn: he's the first democratically elected president but in the last few week he issued edicts that make him sound more like a dictator. what should the u.s. be doing about this situation? >> i think morsi wants the same relationship in a sense that mubarak had with the use the. i'll help -- had with the united states. i'll help you with your foreign policy in the region and you leave my domestic policy alone. the united states should be pushing him to make concessions to the minorities so they have a voice in the government and that voice is represent in this government. >> would the morsi administration help the u.s. in syria? >> i don't think they will provide much help in syria. one of the things we have got to take note of, there are still four countries transition.
11:36 am
libya is one of those countries, yes moan and tunisia. ski wait and jordan may be around the corner as part of the revolutionary change. there will be a struggle went radical islamists and people who are central and moderate who want democracy and liberal reform. alisyn: everything is in so much flux. does this surprise you point that we are now here when it seemed promising during the arab spring that more roots of democracy might take hold? >> i think anybody who under the region knew how volatile it is. radical islamicism. and clearly that's a force to be reckoned with as port of this revolutionary change. they were not the catalyst for the change. it was the liberal reformers who were. but they are certainly taking advantage of it.
11:37 am

11:38 am

11:47 am
hope that happens. alisyn: that looks good. in the four decades since we left the moon behind nasa launched the shuttle program. what do the next 40 years look like. joining me is one of 24 we'll to have flown to the moon. colonel warden joins me from ever oh beach, florida. when you hear it's been 40 years season our last footsteps on the moon, how do you define those years? >> if i think about it being 40 years ago that tells me how old i am today. i was half my age when i flew.
11:48 am
>> do you think -- how would you describe these past 40 years. we have made great strides. would you have liked to have seen us go back more often? >> i have mixed feelings about that. i'm not sure that we would really accomplish a lot more by going back to the moon. there are other thing we need to do. but i think people have to understand that the space program is a very, very long-term program. we are talking hundreds and thousands of years to get where we need to go. and the apollo program was a first small step in giving us the capability to do that sort of thing. it's been 40 years since the apollo program and we have take and step backwards. but i think human nature being what it is, the time will come when people will realize that going to the moon is not enough. going to mars is not enough.
11:49 am
we'll have to go someplace where we can move human population at a time when we can't live here on earth anymore. we are maybe talking a million years. but that's okay. in universal time that not very long. alisyn: in the next 40 years so we can get our minds around it. what would you like to see the u.s. set their sights on? >> i would like to see the u.s. set its sights on developing the technology to go wherever we need to go. i would like to see the i.s. set its sights on developing the propulsion system that will take us where we need to go. the first step is go someplace like mars or go to an asteroid. a further step from where wehav. but we need to develop -- the technology development is the key to the whole thing. >> in the special coming up this weekend on fox, we hear
11:50 am
astronauts talk about the experience of going to the moon. as always it sound rap sodic when they remember it. for many it was a religious experience. what was it like for you? >> it's interesting that jim irwin who flew with me on apollo 15 became an evangelist and he gave testimony about feeling the presence of god on the moon. that may be absolutely correct but i have a different take. i said if you can feel the presence of god on the moon, why can't you feel it here on earth. did you feel like you were closer to him by going to the moon. some had a religious experience, others it was just another flight. i'm somewhere in the middle. i said an awful lot of time since the flight trying to do research and read up on where we came from and where we potentially will go sometime in the future.

11:55 am
18-wheeler and swerved into a guardrail and off the road. alisyn: you have heard of pacemaker for the heart, how about one for the brain? >> it its promising it works like a pace maker. they implant a device into the chest and have two wires that strewn beneath the skin and they go up into the skull. a couple wires and they actually run along the natural wires of the brain and the wires deliver electrical charges into parts of the brain that are responsible for learning and for memory. here is a doctor. listen. >> what exciting is our understanding of how the memory works. what we are hoping to see is improved memory and people don't
11:56 am
decline as fast as they would without the treatment. >> reporter: six canadian patients have gone the this implant and all have shown slight memory improvement. but a great deal of improvement when it comes to brain metabolism. that what you lose when you get alzheimer. the first u.s. patient got this implant just yesterday so we don't have result on that just yet. the treatment works along with different alzheimer's division. but the truth is thes alzheimer's drugs have not worked nearly as well as researchers were hoping. there are 5.2 million americans who have alzheimer's. those are people over 65. there is no word on the early onset alzheimer's. by 2050 it to be up to 16 million. one in five million women will get alzheimer's in their lifetime. this is all about changing the
