>> good morning. welcome to "today" on a friday morning. i'm matt lauer. >> i'm savannah guthrie along side al roker and tamron hall who is sitting in for natalie. actually i think natalie is waiting for the new iphone. >> i passed it this morning on my bike. >> 5th avenue? >> yeah, crazy stuff. >> people have been lining up for a day waiting to get in. they are open, but they have not started selling the phones yet. we will have more on that coming up. >> also, amanda knox is here for an exclusive interview. she is outside the studio right now. we want to ask a question about the interview. >> if you were amanda would you return to italy for another trial? you can get into this conversation on our facebook page. we'll talk to amanda live in a few minutes. >> but first, more violence in chicago. 13 people wounded after another mass shooting. one of the victims a 3-year-old. john yang is in chicago. john, good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning, matt.
7:02 am
very violent night overnight in chicago on the south side. 13 people were shot. the most seriously shot was a 3-year-old boy, shot in the head. he's in critical condition in the hospital right now. incidentally, that little boy's uncle was one of the victims of a state of violence over labor day here in chicago. the other victims in that shooting, in that park shooting on the south side, their injuries do not appear to be life threatening. many have already been treated and released from the hospital. police very tight lipped. they do say it appears to be gang related and believe it or not, it was only one of a number of incidents overnight. in all, overnight in chicago there were 23 people wounded. two of them fatally. so this is a very violent night in chicago. ironically it comes at a time when police officials have been touting the murder rate and shooting rate is actually coming
7:03 am
down. murder down 32% and shooting down 22% and murders on track to be the lowest since the 1960s but a very violent night, matt. >> john, thank you very much. now to washington and here we go again. another government shut down show down is brewing on capitol hill. nbc's peter alexander is on duty at the white house this morning. peter, good morning to you. >> hey, savannah. president obama travels to kansas city this morning to highlight improvements in the economy but back here in washington there's another political war. this time largely within the republican party over funding the government and without an agreement by the end of this month, it is you who could feel the pain. >> reporter: stop me if you've heard this one before. if washington can't come to an agreement in just ten days it will run out of money. the government will shut down. house republican solution, a bill that funds the government through mid december but stops paying for the president's healthcare law. >> the law is a train wreck and it's going to raise cost.
7:04 am
it's destroying american jobs and it must go. >> reporter: but it won't go far. the republican bill is guaranteed to fail in the democratic controlled senate. some republican senators even dismissed the plan. one calling it the dumbest idea i've ever heard because even if it passed, president obama would never sign it into law. once again a stalemate. >> the problem is right now, this town, washington is locked up. >> reporter: so what would a shut down mean to you, members of the military and most government workers would get ious, not pay checks. tourists and national monuments locked out and passport and visa applications stalled and no new student loans until the government gets back to work. among those not affected, the members of congress. they still get paid and more now they're still bickering. >> while the president is happy
7:05 am
to negotiate with vladimir putin he won't engage with the congress on a plan. >> the white house's response? >> a little bit of putin envy on behalf of the speaker. but maybe he can explain that. >> here's the thing, avoiding a shut down is supposed to be the easy part. the last shut down was 20 years ago. the bigger challenge is raising the borrowing limit, they call it the debt ceiling. that's next up and there the possible consequence is default, again, threatening the nation's economy. >> peter alexander at the white house this morning. thank you so much. >> are we on the verge of another government shut down? that will be the topic this sunday on "meet the press." pope francis is speaking out for his new vision for the catholic church in what might be the most revealing interview since his election in march he shared his thoughts on the need for reform. here's ann thompson. >> reporter: in a blunt interview in the magazine "america" pope francis says the church cannot be obsessed with the issues that divide it.
7:06 am
we cannot insist on issues related only to abortion, gay marriage, and the use of contraceptive methods. this is not possible. he goes on to say, we have to find a new balance. otherwise, even the morale edifice of the church is likely to fall like a house of cards. until now the pope followed the advice attributed by his name sake. preach often. when necessary, use words. pope francis is accessible. always stopping to bless the sick or kiss a child and he is humbling. excepting a used car to drive in vatican city. he likes to be close to the people and he wants his priests to do the same. urging them to act like pastors, not bureaucrats. the pope says he sees today's church as a field hospital that needs to heal wounds. the church sometimes has locked itself up in small things in small minded rules. he wants the catholic church to be the home of all.
7:07 am
not a small chapel that can only hold a small group of selected people. for today, ann thompson, nbc news, new york. >> new york's timothy cardinal dolan is the president of the u.s. conference of catholic bishops. good to see you. >> good to be with you. >> we have met before on the occasion of the pope making headlines. we observe he is not changing church doctrine, but this seems like a radical change in emphasis. do you agree? >> i agree. radical is a good word. that comes from the latin word of root. he is going back to the gospel. simplicity, a surprise, invitation, mercy and embrace. this man -- yesterday was the sixth anniversary you and i were together on march 19th as he began his ministry. six month anniversary yesterday, this guy batting 1000. >> we have seen him on the ride
7:08 am
back from brazil when he said who am i to judge homosexuals. i think he took it a step forward. in a way launching criticism of the church saying the church was obsessed with the social issues? is it a fair critique? does it ring true? >> we better listen to him. he is a successor of st. peter. he is asking for a stress strategy. sometimes as we come across as negative, as complaining too much we lose the folks. we have to be positive and fresh and affirming. if we emphasize the essentials all the other principles will flow from it. the practical application. he's on to something. he's a good teacher. >> for some people these words are comforting and welcoming. for others who care deeply about these social issues and i think you count yourself among them, is there anything alarming or upsetting or confusing about it? >> i hope not and what i welcome is that this man, pope francis, has given the church such a front burner position in the
7:09 am
life of the world that we now, we bishops, we priests, we have the opportunity now to help him clarify and present the fresh and vigorous way the teaching of the church. because all of a sudden everybody is interested. i'm getting invited to the today show. when i go to a restaurant people are asking me about pope francis and the teachings of the church. this is an amazingly effective teachable opportunity due to him. >> do you view it as a course correction? >> we always need correctives. i think so. every pope gives us a correction. every pope gives us a correction. this one is doing it very effectively and i'm glad he is. >> does it change anything you do. you're the head of the u.s. conference of catholic bishops. you have been involved in fighting obamacare's policy on contraceptives. does that change what you do or where you spend your time or your emphasis. >> yes. it does. i wouldn't exactly use those issue as you observed but did you hear what he said to bishops
7:10 am
the other day, he said don't be in an airplane looking down at your people and the poor, get down there with them. now that is good for me to hear. that's an examination of conscious. i have to say to myself, are you with your people? are you stuck in the office all the time? are you driving by in a car? you're supposed to be with them like he is. those are prophetic corrections that i need to hear. he's calling me to conversion of heart like jesus did. >> i'm out of time. >> i'm out of breath. >> has he surprised you? has this pope surprised you? >> i'm surprised that i'm not surprised. this is what we wanted. remember i told you savannah, you were there and march 19th i'm sitting next to one of the great intellects of the church and when the pope is speaking to me turns with tears in his eyes and he said this guy speaks like jesus and i said i think that's
7:11 am
the job description. he's doing it. >> it's always good to have you here. >> thank you. >> now here's matt. savannah, thank you. now to mexico where the heaviest rains on record left that country battered and in chaos. at least 97 people died and more than 1 million people are effected by the rain, the wind, and the flooding. mark potter is there with the latest. mark, good morning. >> good morning to you, matt. in the last week mexico has been hit by a one-two-three punch. three separate areas struck by a hurricane or a tropical storm. tens of thousands of tourists have been stranded and many are still trying to get out. >> reporter: flood waters are still raging in parts of mexico's west coast and the devastation is getting worse. bridges are collapsing. roads are being cutoff and washed away and tens of thousands of people are stranded. for many, the situation is desperate. the airport in acapulco is flooded and several hundred tourists are camping out there
7:12 am
hoping to get out this morning. some have been waiting for days. among them, edgar and his family. >> you have been waiting three days here at the airport. >> yes, exactly. >> how are you feeling? >> tired. sad. and it's a hard week. >> reporter: alice cooper and her family visiting from miami were still hoping to board one of the flights headed out last night. >> we have been trying since saturday to get out of here but it has been almost impossible. >> reporter: the mexican army is using military transports to fly tourists home and four private airlines are flying people out at no charge. rural towns like this one are now buried as mudslides overwhelmed homes and roads. relief aid has been slow and coming and there's some reports of looting but the situation isn't dire for everyone. some hotels managed to escape the ravages of the storm and are giving away rooms and meals. >> no problem. i am here. i have fantastic food. i'm happy.
7:13 am
free everything. >> but for so many here in the storm zone it is a much, much more desperate situation. mexican officials are trying to clear the road between mexico city and acapulco some more relief aid can come in here. back to you. >> mark potter, thank you so much. this storm maybe headed to the u.s.? certainly some of it. we're seeing that on the satellite and radar. good news for acapulco, they are drying out. no more storms for them. that will help with the relief efforts. closer to home, we seeing showers and thunderstorms getting themselves together. streaming out of mexico and into texas. so we are going to see a lot of heavy rain over the next 48 hours. from del rio to dallas, we have heavy thunderstorms. we have flash flood watches and flood watches in effect for much of central and southern texas and we're looking for as much as 5 inches of rain. heaviest areas are going to be

he did not get the ball, but he got the next best thing in my opinion. nachos. he got nachos from a fan in the seats. ask me, that is a cheesy way to make us forget he did not get that ball. get it? savannah and al, it is a cheesy way. >> you don't say get it. >> if you have to say get it. >> then you know it's cheesy. >> whose side are you on? >> tamron, thank you very much. mr. roker is back with the forecast. let's see what we have. we have been talking about the front. you see it. it is clear and delineated from chicago all the way to del rio. a pretty long system. from del rio, texas to chicago. we are talking almost 1,500 miles. this is really getting together and pushing its way forward. we are looking at showers and thunderstorms over the next 24 hours making their way from texas and cutting across chicago and cleveland and into syracuse and boston as we move on into the weekend.

7:32 am
inside this apartment in it la. back on american soil, a free woman. >> thank you to everyone who believed in me. >> in her hometown of seattle, she goes back to college and writes a memoir. trying to put the past behind her until a new twist rocks her world again. >> acquittal of amanda knox overturned this morning. >> the italian supreme court orders a new trial forcing knox to face the same murder charges all over again. investigative journalist who spent a year covering the trial says the new hearings may be an attempt to resolve any doubts left in the court of public opinion. >> the majority of the italians believe she's guilty. the supreme court can't be oblivious to that fact. >> knox's family and attorneys remain hopeful her acquittal will stand. >> amanda knox haas was not involved in this horrific murder and she's absolutely unequivocally not guilty.
7:33 am
>> as her fate is determined in italy, knox will be watching from home, a half a world away from the courtroom. >> she's with us. her book is called "waiting for heard." it's good to see you. >> i've been reading some things you said over the last year or so. one of the things you talked about honestly, you've had symptoms of ptsd, had nightmares, panic attacks. as this trial now gets ready to start in about ten days, has that somewhat kind of inflamed that issue? >> absolutely. it's been a hard month. i -- it's so crazy to -- it's happening so fast. it's happening and i'm not quite sure what's going to happen. but i'm trying to do everything i can to make a difference. >> i look back april 30th was
7:34 am
the last time i saw you make a comment where you said you were still considering going. >> yeah. >> you were still considering going there. now you said no you will not be there to stand trial. most people assume that much of the decision is based on the fear if you're found guilty, you could go back to prison and won't see the united states for a long time. >> i look at it as, i was already in prison as an innocent person in italy. i can't reconcile the choice to go back with that experience. it's not a possibility. it is i was imprisoned as an innocent person. i just can't relive that. i'm not -- i don't think i'm going to be put back in prison. i think that we're going to win. that's why i'm fighting this fight. that's why i continue to, to put forth the defensive argument in court. >> but you know that by saying i
7:35 am
will not go back there, there are going to be some people who look at that decision and say it's a sign of guilt. she's got something to hide she doesn't want to stand trial. >> i look at it as an admission of innocence to be quite honest. because, i mean, besides the fact that there are so many factors that are not allowing me to go back, financial ones, ones where i'm going to school, ones where i don't -- i want the court to proceed without distraction. it's -- i was imprisoned as an innocent person. and that -- it's common sense not to go back. >> if i'm the prosecutor though, i think you're handing me an opportunity. first of all, you don't get a chance to make an impassioned plea for ayour innocence the wa you did in italian. if i'm the prosecutor and telling the court about your trustworthiness and your version of the facts and the character issues in the first two trials, i get to point at an empty chair
7:36 am
and i get to say she didn't care enough to come back and stand trial. >> that drives me crazy. i understand that risk. but what is being on trial here is not my character. is shouldn't be. what should be on trial is the fact that the case and if you look at the facts of the case, there's proof of my innocence in there being no -- there's no trace of me in the room where my friend was murdered. there's traces all over the place of the man who actually did this. rudy ga day. it's impossible for me to have participate north dakota this crime if there's no trace of me. >> you said you still have faith in the italian legal system, the justice system. that's the sis thaem convicted you the first time, overturned the conviction on appeal and then ordered a new trial. how do you still have faith in the system that's gone back and forth like that? >> well, two judges looked at this case.
7:37 am
judge helmand and judge -- the appeal trial judge. they saw that i was innocent. you can be acquitted both ways. you can be acquitted for being not enough evidence to prove your guilt and you can be acquitted for being innocent. they found me innocent. that renewed my faith in the justice system. at this point, people have told me, why do you even keep fighting? i believe that that is possible. i i believe that people who really care about justice and who really look at this without prejudice are going to come to the same conclusion. >> before i ask you the next question, do you mind next question, do you mind sticking around for a few minutes? can i continue this in a few minutes. >> sure. >> let me end with this and we'll bring you back. how a you going to keep one this trial? is there a feed you'll be able to see each day. you'll be going to school. are you going to watch it every day? >> i'm not quite sure about watching it.
7:38 am
i'm definitely going to be in contact with my lawyers so what i am plan as good that they will call me for every break that happens during a single court session. they'll call me. tell me what's happening. >> will you have input? will you make suggestions? >> well, i'm trying to figure out how this will be because during court i would listen and i would say well that person is saying something that's completely inaccurate can you ask them a question and i won't be there this time. i'm really not sure what itself going to look like. >> stick around. i appreciate the time and by the way, i want to mention again the book is called "waiting to be heard." thanks. we'll see u in a couple of minutes. let's go to al and savannah. >> matt, thank you so much. i'm going to take it right now and show you we have a wide area of showers and thunderstorms stretching from texas. making it's way all the way up here. wet weather in the eastern part of the country. as we start off with saturday,

are you a 10? are you an 8? >> i'm a 9. there's always the fear that's lingering and the experience of being convicted when i shouldn't have. but things are changed. it's not just the prosecutions voice that's out there. and while it is the legal process in italy where one can be convicted of a crime if there is no motive to be found and if there's only circumstantial evidence, you cannot be convicted if there is proof to the contrary. >> so that one in ten chance, backo the hypothetical, if you're found guilty you could live in this country. they could want you extradited. you could be here outside the reach of the italian law but with an international arrest warrant hanging over your head. you wouldn't be allowed to travel. could you imagine life like that? >> i imagine it all the time because i have to think the worst case scenario. i have to prepare in my mind what that would be like. i mean, i thought about what it

8:45 am
[ singing ] >> reporter: but for the real life couple idina menzel and taye digs. cherished minutes are shared here. a camp they started for young city girls. >> i always wanted to have a camp. it had to be centered on young women finding themselves, finding their voices. helping th leadership skills. >> focussing on the girls themselves as opposed to the arts or the sports. >> right. using the arts to help them express themselves and find their creative souls. >> reporter: these creative souls first met 18 years ago on the set of the tony award winning musical rent, setting the scene for their romance. >> and then he heard me sing. >> and obviously she tore it up. >> w wn she tore it up, what was your impression? that was it?

8:48 am
they find ways to harness this power and do good with it. >> awesome. that was great. >> as women, i think that's really powerful. it's not about being scary, it's about being fierce. >> reporter: using their forces to empower a new generation of young girls to find and use thei theirs. >> that's cute. >> wow. >> idina and taye hope to extend the program all year supporting the girls and when idina performed at carnigie hall she invited that young performer on stage to help read a poem. >> it's great. >> plus they're such a talented couple and to use their talents to help others, that's what all of us should do. >> changing those girls lives
