9:04 am
ever hit land. >> w. >>ind gusts -- >> and whe you think about mille that puts it in perspective. >> camille was 190 miles per hour winds back in 1969. the sustained wind 195 miles per hour. 235 wind gusts. a storm surge of aut 20 feet. you know, i low lying areas. and now there talking about ybe 10,000 people dead. >> yeah those nbers just coming in. 10 million people have been afcted. according to the un no electricity, food, water. houses and billings have been veled. some coastal towns were wiped away. >> aot of these areas are generally poor are too where the infrastructure is not great and as we saw in haiti with the earthquake, they get decimated by an event like this. as you see, say,e're seeing all the -- unfortunately the aftermath anwe're still learning about areas that we're not even hearing about communication withyet. >> and sadly there's ather area developing ck between
9:05 am
peru and the philippines that obviously won't be as strong but is going to be rainnd win to this area over the next 72 hours. >> so we knoa lotf people are going to want to help and reach out in some way ando ny great organizations, including e military is already there helping out right now. buthe american red cross launched a family tcing service among many other aid operations. unicef is helping provide them with shelt and clean wat and vaccines. save the children inperation usa and world vion all in place trying to take action here. go to our website if you have any questions about the organizations or if you nt to getnvolved and help t. >> absolutely. some other sries making news is morning. this miami dolins back and forth. it gets bigr and bigger. >> it's more convoluted too. i don't know what to believe or ink in a lot of ways. >> we hea for the first time from richie incognito. he gavan inteiew yesterday to fox spor. the rst one since he was
9:06 am
suspended. duri the sit down interview he defended his treatment of his teammate jonhan martin. th is how he explained it. >> i'm embarrassed by ut. but what i want peopl to know is the way jonathan and t rest of the offensive line and our teammates, h we communicate. it's vuar. it's not right. when the words are put in the context i understand why a lot of eyebrows get raid but people don't know how john and i communicate to one another. thissn't an issue about buying. this is an issue of mine and john's relationship where i may -- iave taken stuff too far and i didn't know it was hurting him. >> incogto tried to provide context yestday. he revealed a text from marn to fox sports whereartin said i'm, quote, going to murder your family. yeah. and he said this is the way we talk. we're joking around. >> but there like 1,100 texts they shared back and forth.
9:07 am
but what's consing as well is martin sen a world saying what's up n, the world's gone crazy. i'm good, though, congrats on the win. and another text sai i'mood man. it's insaut just know i don't blame youuys at all. it's just the culture around football and the locker room got to me a little >> sounds like somody is walking his story back. sounds like he is walking back. don't know if he iseeling the heat from players. because a lot of them came out and defdedincognito. >> incognit >> exactly. >> so you wonder what the ment was that caused him to leave the team. th's a huge step and now in those texts it appears that he saying wre good. >> right. there is an investigation underway and it's probably gng to be hile before we g this thing figured outut either way it's very clear that there's something wrong in that culture, in that locker room. if they say this is the way we talk in the lockerroom, that' just the wayt is -- you know,
9:08 am
that's unacceptle. >>'m sure those of us that are not in that culture they would say yo don't derstand. but do you wt your child growing up t wt too that? to be in that culture? >> many footballrganizations that you think that's probabl not what was going on in the locker om. you would hope that this is ybe just an erration. >> it's a bizarre story and we haven't seen the end of it. anothestory that has a lot of people talking this morng. cnn reporter has filed a gender discrimination claim withhe equal employmentpportunity commission against his employer. he wants t same ten wee of paid leave thatcnn's mothers get. birth mothers get 10 weeks pd leave an the same policy appls both men and women who adopt or have chiren through a surrogate. so in other words, if you adopt and y're a dad you get the ten wes but not if you're the biological father. >> you g twoweeks. >> but the moms get ten paid. >> right. >> time warner which is the parent firmaid no to his equal leave request. they said we don't comment on pendinlegal matters however it should be noted that time warner
9:09 am
and it's businesses have been recognized for pviding employees with some of the most prressive and inclusive benefits available. the parental leave policy is flexible and available to al employees. that's the statement. whato you think? >> i think honestly having looked at some of the policies d we were doing a little resech over the weekend and cnn's policys for the most part what a lot of companies offer. >> right. >> and it's actlly in some ways, even better than what a lot of companies offer. i mean, 10 weeks paid materni leave for women, two weeks pd for men is -- for bonding time -- i mean, thas in line, if not little bit better than whe the country stands. >> but the question is if u give 10 weeks so an adoptive or surrogat whyouldn't you give it to -- i'm glad they give t time but you should even it out somehow. >> a lot of companies whe it comes , they make a diffence beeen if it's an adopted child and the bonding time that is
9:10 am
needed, you know versus a biologal child. which is interesting. it certain rses a lotf questions. but a lot of questions overall with the fily medical leave act in this country. we lag hind. we're one ofour cntries in the world o aually don't have reallyaid medical leave as a law. yeah. >> well but on the other hand, we lea the country in miley cyrus. >> we sure do. yes. we lead the country -- >> and the world. theworld. >> last nigh mtv, european sic awards in amsterdam, miley cyrus found aew way to get atntion. sh opened the sho with a performancef we can't stop. of course she twerked with little person and of course she won the best video awd for wrecking ll. t's just enjoy ron burgandy for a second. that's the highght. after accepting the award she gets the ard and she took a
