better. thanks for making me laugh. and rick baker posting if they cannot run it right the first time what makes them think they can do it the second time. government has never meant to be in the insurance business. i'm gretchen, here is shep. gretchen, thanks. we are developing several new stories here on the fox news deck. reaction after new testimony from the health and human services secretary kathleen sebelius about the problems with the obamacare web site and what she says the administration absolutely can cannot could do. plus, a man who hijacked a plane to cuba has just returned to the united states after three decades to face justice. we have video of his plane arriving and you'll hear what happens next. facebook launching a new policy on bullying. how will that effect you and your children? plus, jet man takes a wild ride over mount fuji. the incredible video is ahead so let's get to it.
12:01 pm
any shepard smith reporting live from the fox news deck. >> good wednesday afternoon to you. 3:00 on the east coast. delaying obamacare is not an option. those words from the nation's top health official today kathleen sebelius who once again testified to congress about the bungled web site rollout. she flat out rejected republican demands that the white house put the new healthcare law on ice. >> some have asked why not just delay implementation of the new law until all of the problems are fixed. and there is a pretty straightforward answer. delaying the affordable care act wouldn't delay people's cancer or diabetes or park sans. >> as expected, secretary sebelius got an earful from some lawmakers. they blasted her over the web site glitches which the secretary says will be fixed by the end of this month. she says that she is ultimately responsible for the fiasco. and that led to it a fiery
12:02 pm
remark from the republican senator from kansas where secretary sebelius served as governor. >> in your zeal to implement this law, not warnings, not advice, not council would deter you from implementing the exchanges. you said america should hold you accountable which is why today, madam secretary i repeat my request for you resign. thank you, mr. chairman. >> no response from secretary sebelius. more of the tough questioning though in just a moment. first, we're getting new look at just how bad that web site rollout really has been. republicans in the house released obama administration memos from the days right after that launch. here's what some of those memos show. widespread reports of insurance plans showing up with the wrong prices or details. some 90% of those who managed to log in could not pass the residency test to prove that they are eligible for medicate. about 30% of applicants ran into errors that kept them from completing their
12:03 pm
applications. and the system that verifies ids wrongly showed about 6% of applicants were in prison. the memo mentions the bug was the identification program, quote: really high match for things we wouldn't expect. like death. mike emanuel is on fox top story and he is live on capitol hill for us this afternoon. sounds like a lot of lawmakers are at least acting like they are losing their patience and in many cases i'm guessing they are. >> well, shep, and we are also learning that the president got an earful from people of his own party, democrats who are facing the voters next year who have very serious concerns about this healthcare rollout. today on capitol hill though, you had republicans and democrats saying that the administration wasn't fully forthcoming about some of the issues this healthcare rollout would face and bottom line, here is a sample of some of the bipartisan concern expressed today. >> i want this to work. i want to do what i can to help you make it work. but, it means you also
12:04 pm
have -- two way street. you have got to tell us what's going on candidly, fully. >> yes. >> so we don't wake up end of november and lo and behold still not there yet. >> there is a long track record of broken promises and untruthful answers to both this committee and the american people with respect to how this law should work or would work and the impact it would have. now, i hope that that will stop today. >> i mentioned the president getting an earful from members of his own party. we have learned that the president, vice president, white house chief of staff and jeff zoins the guy who is due to fix the healthcare web site met with the 2014 democrats in the senate who are up for he re-election. we understand there is a lot of frustration expressed in the room. lawmakers unable -- say are their constituents are still unable to get on the web site and so the administration wanted to let a little pressure out of the room. shep? >> mike, what about questions over the web site's security. >> there has been a lot about that because, of course, you are putting very personal information in
12:05 pm
terms of your own health and also your social security number, that kind of very personal information. some people have called it a hacker's delight. here is how secretary sebelius handled that today. >> i would say that the site has met the highest standards of security for federal government sites. we have taken great care, again, not to store personally identifiable information in the hub. >> so she is trying to reassure lawmakers and the american public that their personal information is secure and that this web site will get rolling before long. >> with all the web site troubles you think somebody has got to be doing well here, right? well, other businesses involved with the healthcare law are not getting a lot of attention. and that could also be due to some states refusing to give out important information like how much of our tax money that they are giving to certain companies. take, for example, the call centers across the country that answer people's questions and help them enroll. in public documents from connecticut, the state's
12:06 pm
health exchange blacks out the amount it's paying a contractor to operate the call center. an official says that's because releasing the price would hurt competition for contracts. the company itself reports it has a 15-million-dollar deal over three years. a number of officials will not confirm. compare that to the state of vermont where officials say people have a right to know how much the taxpayers are paying. in that state, the call center is making about half a million dollars a month. so the question is, do we all have a right to know where our taxpayers are going? joining us now is larry fishelman. he is the ceo of diana link corporations. creates all kind of systems. is he with us here on the news deck. they didn't think that they were going to need that many people to be calling because they thought most people would be logging on online. since so many people are calling there is a lot of money in answering the phones. >> there is a lot of money in answering the phones and it's a huge expense.
12:07 pm
the taxpayer right now because the site isn't working is really every time they pick up the receiver is literally paying 50 cents to a dollar call. >> when they rolled this out out, the original plan was most people will be able to go through this online and actually in the call centers, what they're doing is taking people through it online. >> they are supposed to take them through it online but the other issue they are having now is they have got it use security. you are placing calls that are wasted calls because to check security you have to go online also through the call. but, guess what, they can't go online because online isn't working. so there is thousands of thousands of calls that are going in where operators are saying sorry, i can't help you because the web site is down. so this is an added expense out there that's costing millions and millions of dollars and the whole issue with the web site is, you are supposed to through technology go on the web site. be able to handle the issues and be able to handle the questions. the call center real radioly should be backup plan. now becoming de facto plan
12:08 pm
instead of the backup plan. >> i understand why it was that connecticut won't say what it is that we are paying. if you let people know what you are paying, contractors will be able to bid in such a way that he they will get some of the -- i get it but now since this is costing so much. there are a lot of people who want to know what are we paying here? >> yeah, like i said, probably anywhere there is different contracts in different states. probably anywhere between 50 cents to a dollar. you know, i have seen cases 75 cents. 80 cents per call. that includes, you know, every time you call to an 800 number there is a carrier cost that they incur. on top of that, these call centers are built. a lot of them built in the middle of nowhere. warehouse spaces where they can take in the calls, the volume. they have to have people. they have got to have systems. they have got to have the phones so there is costs there but it's supposed to be for backup. this is going to be millions and millions of dollars. this is in addition to the web site, which has already cost 400 million.
12:09 pm
depending on the number it keeps moving. >> the numbers are all over the place. we can't really confirm any of them. it's not a small amount of money. >> it's not a small amount of money it is very expensive. you do get a service for it but, once again, to be able to get that service should really be used as backup not as the main. now that you add that in it's going to be very costly. >> i wonder about the budget. like any other project you put together, you say all right we have this amount of money for this and this amount of money for call centers. you were expecting that the web site was going to be working and since it's not, i wonder if call centers are just hiring people all over the place because the business model is good one all of the sudden. >> well, it's a great business model and there is nothing wrong with the business model. it delivers a great service. it's just the problem here is that it shouldn't have to be needed for this >> larry fishelson from dyna link communications. >> you too. thank you for having me. >> a man who hijacked a plane and forced it to cuba
12:10 pm
is finally back here in the united states and with fbi agents. how did they catch him? actually, they didn't. in fact, he gave himself up and you will hear why, next. keeping up with these two is more than a full time job and i don't have time for unreliable companies. angie's list definitely saves me time and money. for over 18 years we've helped people take care of the things that matter most. join today.

12:20 pm
12:21 pm
fox news desk. amanda knox's boyfriend took the stand italian court for third murder trial against the couple accused of killing amanda knox's roommate described by prosecutors as drug-fueled sex game. the legal saga has been going on for years now. here is the time line for the slide show. started in 2007, at the time amanda knox had been dating this italian man. in november of that year, investigators say they found the body of knox's roommate, the british student meredith kircher, half naked and covered in blood inside their apartments. there is the apartment right there. this is the knox and her then boyfriend. a few days later they were arrested in the death. jump to 2009 and trial begins. the court finds them guilty of murder and sexual assault and sentenced them to more than 20 years in prison.
12:22 pm
they appealed that ruling and in october of 2011 the court cleared them and freed them on the spot. foxy knoxy flew back home to seattle and she is still there. she has refused to go to italy for this new trial that's happening now. and italy's highest court is now examining more evidence, including the alleged murder weapon, a kitchen knife. in the last trial, investigators said d.n.a. on that blade was unreliable today a court appointed expert says the blood belongs to knox and not the victim. that helps the defense arguement in a big way that the knife was not the murder weapon in the first place. amanda knox's ex-boyfriend also testified about that evidence and told the court will his fairy tale romance with knox. that's what he called it he said after one week he knew she was his first true love. so the trial is underway and amanda knox u.s. attorney ted simon says he has been on the phone with her all day long and he says she is, quote, doing good: attorney
12:23 pm
ted simon is with us live this afternoon. nice to see you. thank you. they are having a trial without her there. and now the evidence has changed since the last trial. what do you make of it? >> well, it's not so much the evidence has changed. i think we should keep in mind, you know, there is no evidence, there was no evidence, and there never was any evidence. that we already know. but with respect to what happened today, it was a prosecution motion to have the knife tested in the certain area known as trace i that had not been previously tested because it was considered to be too small of a feature the tester of the knife determined that it was not meredith kircher on the
12:24 pm
blade. this is what the hope was of the prosecution. they were hoping to find meredith kircher on the blade. the hopes were dashed. it may have been's profile on the blade is totally insignificantenned meaningless. she had already previously found to be on the handle. this knife was found in the home and in the kitchen drawer of rafael slate it is not it would be found on a knife or utensil just like your d.n.a. would be found, assuming you cook or spend time in your kitchen on on those utensils. what we also know and what makes this so incredibly continuing compelling for amanda and in her favor. we already knew before today that the knife was not the murder weapon. for many reasons, including the knife was tested for blood and it came up negative. we know the knife was too
12:25 pm
big. >> i understand the point you are trying to make. i only have a certain amount of time. >> the knife did not. >> get to ask you any questions. that's not helpful for me. you want to go five minutes and i only have three. so what i want to know is. >> i will give you the rest. >> that's kind of you. once this trial is over. if by chance she is found guilty, how in the world do they expect to get her back to italy to serve any time? i mean, she is not even there for the trial. >> well, you know, the supreme court issued a a revision. her parents -- her appearance is not required and not necessary. issue context of american trial he owe -- no evidence in the case. previously she was found innocent. in fact, she was not even found not guilty. she was found innocent.
12:26 pm
if i could turn to the knife which was the centerpiece of their case. not only was there no blood on the knife. not only did didn't it match the wounds. in the last trial independent experts. prosecution or defense. and they concluded that meredith kercher was not on the blade. there was no blood on the knife. and that the collection and testing procedures fell below international standards, was likely contaminated and in the end one can only say it's conclusively determined that the knife, which was just picked up on a hunch is not the murder weapon. there is simply -- it's simply not there. >> thank you, sir. appreciate it we will keep our viewers updated on the trial as it continues in italy. we are learning more today about the potential political impact of last night's election results. campaign carl cameron weighs in from washington. and. and the crack smoking mayor north of the border in toronto says he will not step down but the pressure, as you might imagine is building. and there is word we may finally get a chance to see

12:33 pm
they have not been specific with us yet. in this general area we are told they are on lockdown. we just got in touch with police. saying they are in search of the suspect. buildings and others locked down. they haven't found him. that's the reason for the concern. they're telling students at the university of cincinnati in this particular area to stay where they are. stay away from windows and doors while they figure out who this person is with a gun. why this person with a gun was there. as we get more. i will bring it to you. facebook is stepping up its efforts to curb bullying with something called bullying prevention hub. the company reports starting today, teens will have the option to report comments, photos, or videos as abusive. it claims that the process is completely anonymous. and that the goal is to take -- make it easier for teens to contact adults on the site. the thing is, anti-bullying effort does not apply to instagram.
12:34 pm
facebook's photo sharing app. critics say instagram is often more affeidting ground for bullies than other sites. of course, this comes after officials have linked a number of teen and pre-teen suicides to bullying on social media well, the miami dolphins player accused of bullying and harassing his own teammate may have gotten orders to toughen up his fellow line linemen. orders, that's according to the sun sentinel newspaper in south florida it reports that the dolphin coaches told richie incognito on the left side of your screen here to get jonathan martin quote into the fold after martin missed part of the team's off season workout program. keep in mind those workouts are completely voluntary. so far no response from the dolphins. sources are saying to the newspaper that incognito took the orders too far and sent threatening, racially charged texts to jonathan martin. in one voice mail, richie incognito reportedly called martin a half an n word,
12:35 pm
threatened to slap his mother and told him "i'll kill you." the team suspended richie incognito indefinitely. martin left the dolphins last week of a teammates repeatedly got up from a lunch table when he sat down in an ode to senget grade. his father tells fox news his son is doing fine and wants to talk about the whole thing at some point. meantime, our station in south florida, wsvn, the news station, caught up with richie incognito and asked him about this whole thing. >> what do you have to say about the storm you are in? >> you know what? i'm just trying to weather the storm right now and this will pass. >> "this will pass." steve harrigan with more from our south florida newsroom this afternoon. what more do we know about these reports that the coaches were told richie incognito to toughen martin up? >> shepard, right now it's only unnamed sources telling the sentinel in florida the newspaper, but we could hear more from coach joe philbin in two hours time when he holds a press conference.
12:36 pm
philbin has come under sharp criticism for not having the pulse of his team and letting things go too far in this hazing incident. we also are getting more scrutiny of his offensive line coach jim turner, a man with no previousexperience who a one-time marine officer, shepard. >> all right. steve. one more question. some dolphins players reportedly blaming jonathan martin for going public on this. >> well, support for incognito, despite what appears to be racist messages has been extremely high among current dolphin players, both white and black, a number have come out to say that they love richie incognito. the dolphins meantime have pulled out his jerseys from the team store. likely also to stop running the public service announcement that richie incognito makes before games asking fans to be polite: >> on the field, players have called me overly aggressive. while off the field and on the croquet lawn, quite
12:37 pm
civilized. smashing. >> no word yet whether the dolphins continue to pay incognito's 4-million-dollar salary during his indefinite suspension, shepard. all right. steve harrigan in south florida. the crack smoking mayor north of the border in toronto may finally get a chance to see that video which we're told shows him smoking crack cocaine. he says he hasn't actually seen the proof of what he claims was another drunken stupor but he 'fessed up to that drunken stupor and the crack smoking regardless yesterday. there has been a lot of reaction since then as you might imagine. here you are seeing protesters marching in downtown toronto today demanding that mayor ford step down. in orange quote i'm a taxpayer and i would like to you resign now. that demonstration held in nathan phillips' square which as you can see is not far from city hall. ford says he is sorry for the mistakes he has made but
12:38 pm
insists he will not resign and he will not make said mistakes again and by mistakes we can only assume that he means the smoking of crack in a crack house. of course, it all comes after yesterday's confession. >> do you smoke crack cocaine? >> exactly. yes, i have smoked crack cocaine. >> when, sir? >> but no, do i? am i an addict? no. i have tried it, um, probably in one of my drunken stupors probably approximately about a year ago. >> probably in one of my drunken stoopers probably approximately about a year ago. ford says he loves his job and the city and there is still a lot of work to be done. toronto as we have reported repeatedly is the fourth largest city in all of north america. trace gallagher with the latest. we are learning he might get a chance to see this video. in fact, all of us might get to see it is it poss? >> the videos were actually seized during a gang investigation. gangs and guns sort of thing. one of the guys who was actually arrested during
12:39 pm
gang sweep his lawyer now says that videotape is key to his defense so he has applied to see a copy. he says if the mayor also wants to see it, he should join the application. the mayor says that he wants to see the tape because he believes that it may jog his memory about the crack smoking. listen. >> i told you, probably, probably -- approximately, probably saying about a year ago. i don't know exactly. that's why i want to see. >> i don't even remember after some of the stuff that you have seen me, the state i have been in. it's a problem. >> it's another problem for the mayor because after a deadly gang shooting last year in toronto he vowed to run the gangs out of town, instead, he has admitted to smoking crack at a known crack house and being photographed with known gang members. not exactly the mentor image he was trying to put forth for kids in that city, shep. >> no no, he seemed all beat up about it yesterday, trace. he says i hope nobody has to go what i have been through. today seems like the pound.
12:40 pm
that 1,000 pounds got lifted off and down to whatever is left there. he is pretty happy. >> yeah. very happy go lucky. it's bring your kids to work day in toronto so he was giving some kids a tour around city hall and he actually winked or blue blew a kiss to a photographer who was following him. we have seen the picture. that is a problem here. keep in mind loud are these chants that he needs to resign much louder and louder. there is a group save toronto saying they want him to resign not after the next. keep in mind, shep. it's not just the crack smoking. he has been tossed out of a toronto maple leaf games because he was drunk. groped a politician at a fundraiser. asked to stop coaching football after a violent confrontation with the player. the player has admitted time and again that he likes to drink a lot. >> that's clear. trace gallagher with us this afternoon. thanks. they can't recall him. there is no recall mechanism within the rules in toronto
12:41 pm
that would allow them to recall the mayor for that or just about anything else. so, for now at least, as long as he wants to be the mayor, he is the mayor. a michigan kid who used to push shopping carts at k-mart is 23 years odd and suddenly $8 million richer. he won the world series of poker. they meet him and they tell me i will be playing poker while we meet him because we have these huge computers good for candy crush and poker. we will do that the guy they call jet man just took another incredible jet journey. look at that the video coming up from the fox news deck presently.
