7:00 am
good morning, america. and breaking overnight, what's going on at penn state. a news van toppled. windows smashed by students. thousands swarming into the streets to protest the dramatic late-night firing of legendary coach joe paterno. throwing rocks and bottles. police in riot gear, trying to contain the crowd with pepper spray. we're live from the campus in meltdown in within of the biggest college scandals ever. rick perry's major mistake. completely forgetting his point in a debate flub. >> commerce, education and -- commerce, education and the -- the third one i can't -- sorry. oops. >> is this a fatal blow to his presidential campaign? he's here this morning to respond. vanished. does this scene from a recent
7:01 am
episode of "law & order" explain the disappearance of missing 2-year-old sky? >> someone took my baby. >> the police's stunning new theory. nancy grace and dan abrams, back to weigh in. and country music on its biggest night. >> thanks to my hubby, too. it's been a good night tonight, baby! >> the women of country music push all of the boys out of the way to score the top awards. good morning. and, boy, what a hairy night at penn state. a little after 10:00 p.m., the trustees come out with a dramatic announcement. coach joe paterno, fired. the university president fired, all for their role in the child abuse scandal there. you saw the emotions explode across campus. >> seeing it again right now. end of an era at penn state. and mixed emotions. and many unhappy people about it.
7:02 am
taking to the streets. fighting with police overnight. our weekend anchor, dan harris, was caught right in the middle of it. and he joins us, now, from state college, pennsylvania. how are you doing this morning, dan? >> reporter: i'm doing all right, robin. good morning to you. it was a wild night. it started after students here learned that joe paterno had been fired. and that it happened over the phone. not even a face-to-face meeting. the response was ferocious. the news touched off a protest that went very wrong, with special wrath reserved for the media. you're out here protesting. >> why are we protesting? >> what about these victims? why is this all about joe paterno and not the kids? it's the media that never talks about the kids. they made him look like a freaking villain. you call him a legend. treat him like a legend. >> you think he wants you to do this stuff? >> no. >> reporter: light posts came down. and police in riot gear moved
7:03 am
in. police are spraying tear gas. the crowd dispersed for a few minutes. but they go right back in. they're using it liberally. and they kept on using it during several hours of running street battles. the moment that sparked this fire, this late-night news conference, where the penn state board of trustees, made an announcement that drew a gasp. >> joe paterno is no longer the head football coach, effective immediately. >> reporter: joe paterno, the 84-year-old beloved head coach of the nittany lions, gone. taken down in a scandal involving alleged child sex abuse, carried out by a former top coach. how difficult was this decision for you guys? >> of course, anything like this is tough. >> reporter: moments later, students were in the streets.
7:04 am
>> joe pa is not the one that should be taking the fall for this. save joe pa. >> reporter: why are hundreds of thousands of people coming into the streets in support of the eight kids that were abused? >> i would agree with that, too. my heart goes to the victims and families. i hope they receive justice. >> reporter: joe paterno, who said he was disappointed about this decision, came out of his home and urged calm. >> hey, go get some rest. study. all right. we still got things to do. >> we love you, joe. >> i love you, joe. >> reporter: it took several hours for police to finally retake control of the streets. one interesting note, we actually were approached by several students who said they supported the decision to fire joe paterno. they were, however, too scared to talk about that on camera. robin, back you to. >> all right, dan. thank you. going to bring in espn's tom rinaldi who has been tracking the latest on the scandal, as well. i know you've been there all week long at penn state.
7:05 am
and you've seen the mood change on campus. give us a sense of what's happening, the things we're not seeing on camera. >> reporter: that's a very good question, robin. we certainly saw a very volatile reaction, which really absorbed a lot of the news media's attention. certainly, in other places on campus that we visited, just, for example, next to the joe paterno statue outside of beaver stadium where we're at now, instead, students gathered, arm in arm. they sang the alma mater. they sang the fight song. they chanted the signature motto "we are penn state." and they wanted to stress they didn't want the image of the university tarnished by the student whose behaved and reacted the way they did in such a volatile way last night. >> and many were reacting because of the manner in which joe paterno was let go. after 61 years, a phone call. can you tell us what went down behind the scenes there? >> reporter: sure, robin. as our espn joe schad reported, a source close to the family told them that paterno was handed an envelope, delivered by
7:06 am
messenger, just 15 minutes prior to the announcement made by the board, telling him to call a phone number, and he did. and he was informed he will no longer to be the head football coach here at penn state. i was speaking to a source close to the family, about ten minutes of that announcement being made. and that source said joe paterno had heard nothing and did not know about the status of his tenure. in fact, it turned out that he would not have the opportunity to complete his 46th season here. >> and the question people have been asking, tom, and i'll ask you about paterno's legacy. of course, this is a shadow on it. but you talked about the statue. his wife and he have given millions to the university. not just to the athletics department. but also, to the library, to education there. how will he be remembered going forward? >> reporter: i think it's too soon to really answer that, robin. but you know, you understand what joe paterno means.
7:07 am
not only to college football and not only to the penn state football program, but as a living, walking identity of this university. and the mark that he's left upon it, having been here for more than 60 years. the head coach for 4 1/2 decades. obviously, no one could have foreseen that his tenure would end in this way. and it does leave a mark to some degree on how deep that mark, what shape it takes, only time will really be able to determine. >> tom rinaldi, as always, appreciate your time and your reporting on this. take care, thank you, tom. >> thanks, robin. now, to politics. your voice, your vote. and last night's presidential debate. all of the republican candidates were there. the topic was the economy. herman cain's story going in. coming out, everybody talking about rick perry and his oops moment. the texas governor is here to explain what went wrong. but first, abc's john berman rolls the tape. good morning, john. >> reporter: good morning, george. you know, there are only three
7:08 am
words to describe what happened last night. oh, my gosh. and remember that number three. rick perry will because that number might have dealt the biggest blow to his campaign yet. it seemed like such a normal debate. the economy, the deficit, the usual. >> 9-9-9. >> reporter: then, out of nowhere, the flub heard around the world. rick perry started talking about three government departments he wanted to eliminate. three. if only he could get there. >> it's three agencies of government when i get there that are gone, commence, education, and the -- what's the third one there, let's see? >> his opponents actually tried to help. >> epa? >> epa, there you go. no. >> seriously? is epa the one you were talking about? >> no, sir. >> you can't name the third one? >> the third agency of government i would do away with,
7:09 am
education, the -- commerce. and let's see. i can't. the third one, i can't. sorry. oops. >> reporter: oops is right. it was the energy department. energy. one of the centerpieces of his campaign. this was supposed to be a tough debate for herman cain, following the swirl of sexual harassment accusations. but he faced just one question on the subject. >> here, we're focusing on character and on judgment. >> reporter: one that was booed. >> the american people deserve better than someone being tried in a court of public opinion, based on unfounded accusations. >> reporter: you know, cain sailed through easy with help from that perry oops. and this is so tough for perry because he's already a punchline on "saturday night live." and after the debate, michele bachmann said she felt bad for him. george?
7:10 am
>> john, thanks very much. let's hear from the governor himself, rick perry, joining us this morning. thank you for getting up, governor. and, boy, no one wants pity from an opponent. but you did look like you were in pain during that answer last night. what were you thinking about? >> i was thinking about the number of federal agencies that were coming to mind. but the one that i wanted to say, the department of energy, would not come out. and, you know, in all seriousness, that is one of the problems we have in this country, that we have so many agencies in government out there, that are impacting people's lives. everybody makes mistakes. >> that is true. that is one of the standard questions that everyone prepares for. name three agencies you'd get rid of. already calling this the worst moment in modern primary republican debates. you have a host of republican operatives out overnight saying this is a death blow to your campaign. >> well, the bottom line is, we're going to get up every day and go talk to the american people. and they know that there's not a
7:11 am
perfect candidate that's been made yet. and i'm kind of proof positive of it every day, that people make mistakes when they debate. people make mistakes when they make statements. but there's one thing that americans do know about me, and that is my conservative beliefs about getting this country back on track are very deep-founded. for ten years, when i served, we created more jobs than any other state in the nation. while america lost 2.5 million. if they're looking for the best debater or the smoothest politician, i might not be it. but if they're looking for someone that is a principle, fiscal conservative, they can count on me every day. >> i take your point. but it seemed to come at an absolute worst time for you. you've been on a downward smile since the campaign began, dropped almost 20 points nationally. if you look at the polls in the
7:12 am
early state, you've gone from first to fourth in iowa. first to fourth in south carolina, first to fourth in florida. doing even worse in new hampshire. how do you recover? >> we keep on going out there and talk about the issues that we think are important to the people of this country. again, there's going to be some mistakes made. and we'll deal with those as we go through them. and americans are pretty forgiving people. what americans are not forgiving about, are those sitting around the dinner table last night, watching the debate, worrying about whether or not they're going to be able to have a job in the future to take care of their family. >> you get in this race pretty late. did you fail to understand what kind of preparation it would take? >> oh, absolutely. from the standpoint of preparation to run for the presidency, it is a long slog and a hard slog. but absolutely. we gave complete and absolute thought to that. but again, the perfect candidate's never been created yet. and there's going to be people that make mistakes. and i'll make mine -- share of them. >> let me ask you about herman cain. he got some applause when he addressed the questions about sexual harassment allegations
7:13 am
against him. did he put those questions to rest last night? >> that's for the american people to address. and that's the exact right place for it. we'll leave it with the american people and allow them to make that decision. >> final question, how are you going to prepare for the next debate? >> it's coming up on saturday. so, just like we have prepared all along, is be ready to talk about our plan to cut and to balance and to grow the economy and talk about the issues that are important to the people of america. and we'll probably -- as a matter of fact, i have a website up, george, at what federal agency would you most like to forget? >> i'll bet you get a lot of answers. governor, thanks for your time this morning. >> you're welcome, george, thank you. >> pretty good humor. i think he'll have a joke ready on saturday, as well. >> i'm thinking "snl." >> that's true. josh, what else do we have in the news? >> after that moment.
7:14 am
we have a developing story today. word that one of major league baseball's rising stars have been abducted at gunpoint. women son ramos was a catcher for the washington nationals. he was at home in venezuela, when armed men burst in and took him away. police have no clue where ramos was taken. and there's been no contact from the kidnappers regarding ransom demands. and turning to the economy now, some good news about the jobs market. the number of people filing for unemployment benefits has dropped now to the lowest level since april. wall street trying to recover from wednesday's 389 point drop. amid concerns italy may default on its debt. "gma weekend" anchor, bianna golodryga, has been covering it all for us. and is here to explain, bianna. >> reporter: italy, the world's seventh-largest economy is a country that literally is too big to fail. but the question this morning, is it too big to save? remember that worry about greece defaulting? the big fear would be it would trigger a domino effect. bringing down bigger countries
7:15 am
like italy. and that is what's happening now. italy's interest rates have skyrocketed, making it hard to pay down their debt, which is more than the debt of greece, ireland and portugal combined. this has a direct effect on the u.s. europe is our biggest trading partner. and credit has tightened here. meaning american businesses have less access to money and grow and create jobs. so, what's next? italy is rushing to slash budgets and form a new government. that's helping to bring down borrowing rates this morning. but any will likely need an outside life line to bail them out. it may be the european central bank. but right now, no one know where's that money will come from. >> that's a huge question. meanwhile, here at home, another sign of this country's economic struggles. an entire county in alabama, just filed for bankruptcy. $4 billion in debt. it is the biggest municipal bankruptcy in american history. and eddie murphy is bowing out as host of the oscars. it follows the resignation of his producer, brett ratner, who was caught using an anti-gay slur. now, the motion picture academy is placing somewhat of a help-wanted ad this morning for
7:16 am
host. what do you say, george? >> all you, all you. you about you and ali. >> i nominate my wife. >> she would be hysterical, actually. let's start a campaign. >> i think you just did. she's watching at home. sam, are you in? >> i'll watch. and the twitter campaign begins. good morning, everybody. we have real issue was fog that we have to deal with. as you're waking up this morning, we're already slowing down air travel. we'll give you a live shot out of new york city right now. laguardia, jfk, to philly. down to d.c. this morning. foggy skies and this is slowing down airports. check with your carrier before you leave the house. and the system that brought a first hit of snow to chicagoland, and a little bit of snow all of the way eau claire yesterday, drops some cold air in. this is much colder air. we have frost and freeze

7:32 am
2-year-old sky metalwala alone in her car, as she and her 4-year-old daughter walked for help. but removing the gas tank, police say they found plenty of gas inside. the weird twist in a detectives are looking at, comes from a straight crime drama. they're looking at "law & order," which aired one night before the disappearance, where a mother's son was stolen in the car. >> someone stole my baby. >> reporter: there's more. the mother says sky was so sick, she was taking him to the hospital at the time. but she had left him in the car anyway. at the gas station she visited, police say she didn't buy any gas. she walked through a neighborhood of million-dollar homes. but apparently never asked for help. detectives have taken note of her facebook page, filled with pictures of her daughter. almost none of little sky. her estranged husband has agreed
7:33 am
to two lie detector tests. julia has so far refused to take one. >> the fact that mom isn't willing to come in and provide a polygraph. to be quite honest, that looks suspicious. and we're puzzled by that. >> we want to believe julia. we want to help her find her missing child. and we want her cooperation to do that. and at this point, the information that she's given us has been problem matter an has created more questions than answers. >> reporter: we have reached out to the mother for comment. through an attorney, she has so far declined. and police say they are focusing this case directly on those who knew sky best, friends and family. they say they don't believe a stranger took the little boy from the car. let's get more from our legal team. nancy grace, and legal analyst, dan abrams. great to see her in the studio. less sequins. >> yes. >> all clues pointing in one
7:34 am
direction. >> they really do. they point toward the mother. the mother has not been named an official suspect at this point. >> formality? >> i would say it may be a matter of formality. but the cops can't do that right now. i'd like to see the mom take a polygraph. they say she's cooperating. but when the mom won't take a polygraph, that raises a red flag. >> of course, she's a person of interest. she's a suspect, a person of interest. whatever you want. the bottom line, the police can't say, they don't want to say, with definition, suspect, person of interest. but when they say it's problematic, what they mean is, this story doesn't make sense. nothing that she's telling th them -- >> she has gas in the tank. >> nothing they're telling them is true. their saying, point-by-point, the story is falling apart. >> but i don't know how much weight you give this, the 4-year-old backs up the mom. >> yes, he was in the car. but having interviewed many,
7:35 am
many, i would say thousands of child victims, that doesn't necessarily mean that it was that day. that she saw the baby. that mommy told her the baby was back there. remember, in most jurisdictions, a child that's 2 years old goes in the backseat, turned away from the driver. so, what does the 4-year-old really see? and as you know, and as you know, the child, a 4-year-old girl, was interviewed first and then interviewed again and nothing more was revealed. so, i don't know how tight her story is. >> and i think it's going to come down to the family. look, when i say she's a suspect, doesn't mean she's the person. it just means authorities are looking at her. but they're going to continue to look at other family members. there was a lot of family dissension here. there were custody battles and legal squabbles. >> that doesn't make any sense. what other family member was in that car at that time? and another question. why doesn't she have a cell phone? >> you won't call her a suspect. and now, you're saying no one else -- >> i won't call her a suspect.
7:36 am
i'm wise enough to know that when you call someone a suspect, they're constitutional rights suddenly kick in. and i don't want that to happen right now. but she's driving a sports car that costs a lot of money. they had an escalade. they don't have a cell phone? you get out and walk over a mile to a gas station? people, daily, i practice with the twins carrying both of them at the same time. >> and how much weight do police give that both parents have been cited in the past for child endangerment? >> i don't know. because they left the child in the car. >> i know. number one, it's horrible. but number two, he was not on the scene when the boy goes missing. so, he's out of the game. >> if that's what happened. if what happened is they were driving and that the child was left there. >> i don't believe it. >> that's right. we don't know that that's the scenario that sighting, maybe t weeks ago by a neighbor. believe me, they hate each other. she's not covering for him. >> before you all go, we have to
7:37 am
talk about penn state. what a remarkable scene last night. the trustees fire the president, fire joe paterno. seems like the only choice they possibly had. but the campus erupts. >> i find that disturbing. and i love the loyalty to paterno. i like paterno. but why is somebody turning over a car when nobody is turning over a car when a 10-year-old boy is molested in the shower by a grown man? he's been formally charged. >> and i'm more troubled by the other penn state officials who have been charged, not just for failing to report, but for perjury. it means that the authorities believe they lied to the grand jury about what they knew in connection with in case. that's -- >> arrests happen. >> why does this happen so often in these cases? >> confused loyalties. people think they have to cover for their boss. they have to cover for the school. >> don't want to get involved. there's some degree of the game
7:38 am
of telephone. when the story is that a 10-year-old is getting raped -- >> not just one. >> it's very hard to say, oh, i misinterpreted or misunderstood. >> there's multiple independent witnesses. you have a grad student. you have several other people that visually see the child getting raped in the shower. >> but paterno is in no danger. correct me if i'm wrong, he's in no danger of being charged here? >> there is an argument that one could make. the person who came to him was his underling. that he was the supervisor and as a result, should have reported it. the authorities decided that's not going to be a theory they're going to. >> the whole thing, you know where. >> the civil lawsuits could certainly occur. >> dan abrams, nancy grace, thank you very much. >> it's over? >> why didn't i get invited to the dancing session? the dancing session afterwards. i was going to wear spandex and pull off stuff.
7:39 am
>> most regret ever saying. i tried to save you in the staff meeting. dan doesn't want to do that. now, he wants to do it. bring it on. sam, weather. >> wait just a moment. that's me scrubbing my brain of dan in spandex. i just don't want the image. let's show you some pictures we think are incredible this morning. going right to the pictures in alaska. nome, alaska, when you combine hurricane-force-gusts with the snow. this thing is wound up like a tropical storm. look at thaao swirl hit the coast of nome there. if it had been in a populated area, this storm would be headlinemaking. it was a powerful storm system. on the east coast, we get a low and some rain today. most of the heavier rain will be north of the new york city area, all the way up into maine. it gets a tropical shot from the system offshore.
7:40 am
most of the rest of the area will see showers after you get >> all of that weather was brought to you by jared, the galleria of jewelry. george? robin? >> thank you, sam. coming up, how kim kardashian's ex found out she was calling it all off. kris humphries' father teaks was calling it all off. kris humphries' father teaks out. that's a peerless diamond. that's the ideal ideal-cut diamond. what? female announcer: jared has five times the selection of ordinary jewelry stores, with thousands of loose diamonds and hundreds of settings to create your own one-of-a-kind ring. - that's an extraordinarily...

8:50 am
there. but i'm not worried. no problem. and here's a great lesson to learn with salt. after you guys cream it, you add your cob. put the cob in with water and onion garlic chilies. simmer it for 30 minutes and you have a corn stalk. the corn stalk has more flavor than the corn itself. we add the corn stock to the mixture, the onion, the bacon and garlic. we give this a stir and let it cook for about ten minutes. >> we have about ten minutes later. >> yeah. about ten minutes later, the liquid is reduced. i add a little bit of fresh sour cream. whatever you have in the house. >> time's awasting over there. >> we are. >> you're doing good. >> and get that in there. >> fresh sour cream. and a little bit of butter.
8:51 am
i don't put heavy cream. i like to put in something with a little more flavor. sour cream will do that. and you start working that in. and i'm afraid of cilantro. cilantro is one of those herbs, people can love it or hate it. you can use parsley or basil. and i'm going to put in the cilantro. and you have a beautiful cream corn. >> and that's it? >> that's it. we also made, you have the beautiful pumpkins. we made pumpkin soup with the spicy cream. >> it is delicious. >> also on "the chew," i made a chocolate pumpkin pie that you can also make. >> we have a lot of corn. >> a lot of corn. we don't want to waste anything. roast the corn in the husk. you want to soak these in salt water the night before so the husks don't burn.
8:52 am
you can put a compound of butter on top, which is whipped butter, garlic, salt and fresh herbs and you're golden. >> the corn's gone. >> amazing. >> it's been wonderful here. >> yeah. >> when you see him next, it will be at the holiday grove at broadway farms. you can see michael symon on "the chew," at 1:00 p.m. eastern, on abc. say good-bye, team, to the farm.
