8:00 am

8:01 am
we take you inside their new home, but the question everyone is asking, do they need a bigger place because their family is about to get bigger? we're all energized and smiles this morning. >> fall back is an important national holiday for anyone who works the morning shift on the weekend. fall back. we have some news. the latest controversy to rock the reality tv world. this is lip syncing on "the x factor," it claims its contestants are performing live. how simon cowell's show was busted. and what the judge we love to hate is saying about it. >> big question, what could do that to ratings? if anything? also this morning -- check it out.
8:02 am
golden retriever, one of the key members of this lacrosse team. we amazing the story of this young girl that she leads on treacherous runs. >> really cool story. we're going to begin with those ugly sexual abuse charges at the penn state. lot of questions this morning, including how much university officials and legendary head coach joe paterno knew and when they knew it. abc's t.j. winick is on the campus with more. good morning, t.j. >> reporter: bianna, good morning to you. for decades penn state football played here at beaver stadium has been known as the gold standard of how a college football should be run. that's why these allegations, these shocking allegations of abuse and cover-up has shaken this entire sport to its core. the allegations are shocking that here in one of the biggest and storied football programs, boys as young as 10 were being sexually abused.
8:03 am
by one of the team's most prominent figures. >> this is absolutely a stunner in the world of sports. if you were to say, give me squeaky clean in college football, one of the answers that you might say first penn state. >> reporter: jerry sandusky, the architect of penn state's power defense, the former defensive coordinator may become better known for allegations of sexual abuse. sandusky's attorney says that his client is innocent and fight the charges. more startling, sandusky worked with underprivileged children through a foundation that he started named second mile. >> children who are troubled are going to be more vulnerable to someone paying attention to them. >> reporter: what may shake the university, the charges also accuse penn state officials of a cover-up. athletic director tim curley and university vice president gary schultz failed to report
8:04 am
it to state authorities. >> when people have this type of information, they deny it's actually occurring. because they're concerned it affecting their concerns. >> reporter: attorneys for both men say their clients are innocent. questions are also surrounding head coach and football legend joe paterno. according to investigation a graduate assistant to the team discovered sandusky in a shower with a boy who relaid it to coach paterno who relaid the account to the athletic director. he said that schultz and curley have his unconditional support. those two men are expected to turn themselves into authorities tomorrow morning in harrisburg. dan? >> big story. now to politics, your voice, your vote. last night it was supposed to be herman cain against newt gingrich, instead it became herman cain against the press corps. in a rather remarkable showdown. also this morning, newt gingrich
8:05 am
surging despite controversies. over things like his tiffany's expense account. abc's david kerley is covering all of this in washington. >> debate is probably the wrong word to use when we talk about what happened last night. the real fireworks came after the event when cain lashed out reporters for an issue that has dogged his campaign for more than a week. >> don't even go there. >> reporter: herman cain lashed out at reporters again last night. >> please send him the journalistic code of ethics. >> reporter: when asked if he was ever to address questions about sexual harassment allegations he said this before -- >> herman cain and newt gingrich. >> reporter: agreeing on most issues, trading notes and compliments. >> i'm supposed to have a minute to disagree with something that he said but i don't.
8:06 am
>> i'm going to side step the great temptation to discuss 9-9-9. >> reporter: before a texas tea party audience, they gave the conservatives what they wanted. private tiezing social security and medicare. >> let's get politicians out of that decisionmaking. >> this is a battle to be the alternative to mitt romney. we have seen a number of candidates already. now there's talk about newt gingrich possibly emerging as the anti-romney. >> reporter: that's right. these conservatives are surging. while herman cain's skyrocketing in the poll has gotten the attention, unnoticed by some is gingrich's climb. gingrich's poll numbers fell off a cliff this summer. after a debt to tiffany's for his wife's jewelry. >> these were the things that torpedoed his candidacy. when he first entered the presidential race.
8:07 am
>> reporter: gingrich dropped to below 5%. in the past month, he zoomed into double digits. 12% in our latest poll. experts believe that it's unlikely that gingrich will really emerge as the opponent that could beat mitt romney. they also point out that this is a very unusual campaign psych. cycle. they're hedging their bet that anything could happen this time around. >> that is true, david, thank you. let's bring in the host of "this week," christiane amanpour. these candidates are facing off at a time when voter outrage with washington and politicians, steams have reached a boiling point. you have some new details on a new abc news poll that seem to confirm this. >> that's absolutely right. there is a mood of real pessimism and anxiety across the country. that new poll shows the numbers. some 80% of the american people are dissatisfied with the federal government. and of those, 31% are flat out
8:08 am
angry. that's an all-time high. as to who is to blame the poll shows, well, 35% of the unhappy people blame the republicans in congress. 32% blame president obama and 26% say, basically, it's on both those houses. clearly a lot to work to be done. >> and one man who has picked up on this level of dissatisfaction is former president bill clinton. he's out with a new book on how to bring america back. he lashes out at the obama administration as well from the debt debacle, debt ceiling debacle and the midterm elections as well. is he someone that the administration is wanting to embrace or sort of distance themselves from as we go into this campaign year? >> well, bianna, this book is coming out this week, you'll hear a lot more about it. early reports are saying he said
8:09 am
that the administration hasn't put out the story as well as they could have. but bill clinton is a very successful politician, who reaches out and touches many, many people who will be required in this election, so it may be a little irritating for the obama administration, but to have bill clinton out campaigning and supporting, is likely to be a net positive for him. they did use him during the lame-duck session. >> likely see a lot of him in the coming months. all right, christiane, we appreciate it. and be sure to join christiane later this morning when she goes one-on-one with house speaker john boehner in a "this week" exclusive. the jury in the michael jackson doctor trial get back to business tomorrow.
8:10 am
there's one big question that could create reasonable doubt and lead to a hung jury. abc's diana alvear takes a closer look now. >> reporter: who injected michael jackson with that fatal dose of propofol. his doctor or the superstar himself? the case against conrad murray arrives on that very question. jurors heard the defense propofol expert, tom white, that michael jackson could have injected himself. when murray stepped out of the room. >> so you think it was a self-injection of propofol between 11:30 and 12:00? >> in my opinion, yes. >> reporter: but the prosecution star witness, dr. steven schafer, insisted that the sedated superstar couldn't have muster the energy to administer the propofol himself. >> crazy scenario. >> reporter: the jury has to decide whether the self-injection scenario could have taken place? which argument holds more weight? >> it seems that the schafer
8:11 am
view of circumstances is more plausible without question. dr. white's theory is definitely a stretch. is it a reasonable stretch or ridiculous unreasonable stretch? if there's one juror that finds the defense's version to be reasonable, then they're going to hang firm because the judge has told them to hang firm. >> if the jury is not unanimous, and it results in a hung jury the trial is over, dr. murray goes free and the prosecutor decides whether to retry the case. for now, seven men and five women will reunite tomorrow for their second day of deliberations. debating who gave jackson his fatal dose of propofol? for "good morning america," diana alvear, abc news, los angeles. >> big verdict to come. let's go over to ron claiborne for a look at that other big news. including that earthquake. in oklahoma. in oklahoma of all places. they're assessing the damage there in oklahoma, after the strongest earthquake in oklahoma history. the 5.6 magnitude quake was centered 40 miles northeast of
8:12 am
oklahoma. one local news cast was on the air during that earthquake. >> right now, live shaking quite a bit. it's now calming down as another earthquake has just hit. >> the earthquake came a day after smaller quakes that cracked some buildings there in oklahoma. also reports of buckled roadways and cracked buildings. and more than a week after a rare october snowstorm, more than 100,000 businesses and homes in connecticut still don't have power. the power company say 99% of their customers will have electricity by midnight tonight. nearly two dozen people were arrested at after an occupy atlanta confrontation. police rounded up demonstrators who refused to leave the park and those who spilled out into the street after leading the park. police in england have
8:13 am
cleared all of the cars, from a pile-up. the fiery crash occurred late friday, killing 7 people and injuring more than 50. police say that wet road and smoke from a nearby fireworks display, likely contributed to the crash. finally, think of your cable bill as too high, consider the cost of waiting for the cable guy, it's a lot worse. a new survey finds americans lose $37.7 billion on a year to fix, install something. $250 a person. i got to be honest, i don't know how they calculated that. by the way, i forgot to say good morning to you. i apologize. >> good morning to you. >> what was that movie? cable guy with jim carrey. yeah. >> gets your blood boiling. it's time now for the
8:14 am
weather and j.c. monahan from our boston affiliate. good morning to you. let's get right to it. starting in weber canyon, utah, they had a 25-car pileup, due to icy roads there. led to one fatality. semitruck hit into another one. it's the north of salt lake city. there's another storm moving on the west coast, that is -- had brought 6 inches to the sierras. another storm moving into the southern plains states. not as strong as the last one. strengthen a bit as it moves good morning, the sun came to 6:40 and you can see some clouds in annapolis. 43 in annapolis but 33 in oakland high pressure will

today ando dominate for plenty of sunshine but the cool side, about 56 and better tomorrow. >> a look at the midwest and northeast when we come back. dan? now to the supermodel christy turlington, she has graced more than 500 magazine covers. worked for calvin klein and versace, but today, she's making news for a very different reason. why is she running the new york city marathon? she spoke with abc's juju chang. >> reporter: she's one of the most photographed women in the world, but today supermodel christy turlington-burns isn't walking the runway, she's running in central park, training for the new york city marathon. are you ready for the marathon? >> i think so. i'm as ready as i can. >> reporter: she's running to
8:16 am
help change the fact that pregnancy is the leading death for girls in developing countries. the call that you made for all moms to run 5ks. why is that important? >> minimum distance that a woman has to walk to get to a clinic. >> reporter: this woman who christy featured in her film. >> she had walked five miles, pregnant with her third child, about 20 days past her due date. she was observed for about 15 minutes an hour and she was sent back that same distance home. she needed an emergency procedure. >> reporter: christy herself suffered a serious complication during the birth of your daughter. your complication, if you were in the developing world could have led to your death? >> absolutely. >> in my complication, led to a postpartum hemorrhage which is leading cause of maternal death in pregnancy. and as she goes the distance today the supermodel will be a role model for moms across the globe. juju chang, abc news, new york.
8:17 am
>> to learn more about christy turlington and every mom counts, go to million moms johnson and johnson will donate a $1 for each 100,000 sign up. or like the million moms challenge on facebook. dan, we're going to talk about prince william and kate. in a new twist in the great pregnancy guessing game the palace has announced that the couple is moving. do they need more room for growing a family? lama hasan is looking into that question. their new digs aren't too shabby. >> reporter: not too shabby at all. good morning you, exciting stuff. william and kate, they have new digs. new, bigger home. no, we haven't given up on those pregnancy rumors. now known as peanutgate. we have been digging a little
8:18 am
bit deeper for you. william and kate will be moving from their modest two-bedroom london pad to this. feast your eyes on this humble abode, that will soon be calling home -- a three-story apartment with 20 regal rooms. complete with a glorious, well-pruned garden which we saw when "good morning america's" robin roberts got a tour. >> we're here at kensington palace. >> there is plenty of space. they have a nursery on the third floor. it's a ready-home family home. >> it has a nursery floor, ready made family home. is this a clue or hint? are they trying to tell us something? is kate pregnant? remember this nugget of evidence when she refused to eat the peanut paste when hubby chowed down. >> reporter: they want to do things very secretively. the palace is not commenting either way. i suspect this will not be the first or last pregnancy rumor.
8:19 am
but, yes, we have dubbed it peanutgate. >> reporter: back to the apartment, williams knows this palace well. where he grew up with his father prin charles and his mom diana. >> kate told a friend that it was a little too creepy, the idea of moving back into the home where her husband grew up. i think this is happy compromise. >> reporter: but it hasn't been lived in since princess margaret died in 2002. >> it will need everything to modernize it. they're going to have a bit of a wait before they can move in. once it's refurbished, kate will set about making it home. >> reporter: the bright colors will probably go and be replaced by more neutral colors to make it look more modern and more hip for this young royal couple. their posh pad needs major renovation work. they won't be able to move in before 2013. that's two years from now.
8:20 am
it's a bigger home with a nursery. maybe that's a clue. maybe that's when they will start a family. i don't know, just a hunch. >> you know, it's beautiful. their backyard is actually hyde park. it's stunning. it's a nice house they're moving into. >> sounds pretty good. coming up on "good morning america" -- amanda knox's ex-boyfriend breaks his silence. why he says that one of his most wonderful nights of his life was with amanda, so does he still love her? will he leave italy to be with her? plus, the x factor flub. how simon cowell is responding after a contestant on his new talent show was caught lip-syncing. and a winning team. we'll show you the inspirational story how this dog turned one teen into a champion. hi. you know, i can save you 15% today
