8:03 am
they have to check. tuesday, my mom kind of called me. when it's all said and done it's very treatable and he is going to beat it. if there is one guy i know can beat that it's him. >> reporter: joe paterno is fighting another battle. he was diagnosed with a treatable form of lung cancer. another setback for the 84-year-old who was fired last week in the aftermath of the sex abuse scandal that has up-ended the football program and the university. >> defensive coach jerry sandusky is accused of molesting at least eight boys during a period of 15 years. one of those victims is represented by pennsylvania attorney ben andriosi. >> my client was involved with mr. sandusky and initially met him through the second mile program. through a course of time mr. sandusky built a relationship with my client and i believe he used that relationship with the second mile program and with the university to his advantage to he could essentially stalk and
8:04 am
prey on these victims, including my client. >> reporter: second mile was a charity for at-risk kids that jerry sandusky founded. following his arrest long time ceo jack raykovitz. they might have to close their doors for good, one option as they struggle with the fallout of sandusky as abuse. then the ongoing investigation at syracuse university where a case first brought in 2005 has been reopened. two men claim long time assistant basketball coach bernie fine molested them for years when they were ball boys. >> he started trying to touch me angle things like that. honestly i don't remember if i thought that what is supposed to happen. i know i cringed up and didn't want it to happen. >> i didn't feel right about it and i told him that bernie please don't do that to me and then, you know he'd do it again and again. >> reporter: fine is on administrative leave, as the university investigates. but in a statement released by
8:05 am
his attorneys, fine dismissed the claims at patently false. as for jerry sandusky he is free on bail and due back in court december 7th. russ? >> manuel gallegus in state college, pennsylvania thanks a lot. for more on the story, let's turn to jean casarez, a correspondent for "in session" on trutv and has been covering the penn state case since the very beginning and is in state college with more. we talked about the ncaa investigation. let's talk about the police investigation now. what is the latest? >> reporter: well, the latest is that we are hearing that more alleged victims are coming forward this week. we tried to contact civil attorneys to talk about the civil rights aspect of all of this. they would make appointments but then have to cancel because saying that alleged victims were coming to them they needed to talk with them. when you look at the federal aspect of this this may be growing, because when you look at the grand jury document it talks about victim number 4, for instance that he went with jerry
8:06 am
sandusky to the alamo bowl to san antonio and outback bowl that is florida. he accompanied him on numerous penn state games. they are out of state many, many weekends and also went to charity golf turpts and stayed in hotel rooms with him. that could be out of state. there are federal statutes of transporting minors across state lines for sexual purposes. >> when is sandusky due back in court? >> he is back in court about two weeks. that is the preliminary hearing. a very important hearing because witnesses will testify. we will hear more. more will come out. the whole purpose is there probable cause to bind this over for trial? if so then the case will go forward. next would be called an information, which is like a complaint. >> you've been covering this story from the very beginning. what is your sense of the buzz around campus as more revelations come out about what has happening there allegedly? >> reporter: people are in shock. they don't want to believe it. they love joe paterno.
8:07 am
they love him. they adore him. they don't want to believe he covered something up for upwards of possibly 14 15 years. they can't accept that. people know jerry sandusky. lots of people know him. they said they never dreamed he would do something like this. and this is an area that the defense may want a trial to be held in because this is a campus that may support jerry sandusky. >> let's talk about the allegations at syracuse university against the basketball coach bernie fine were determined unfounded back by the university in 2005. jean let me ask you. how can you re-examine allegations like this once a case has been closed? >> reporter: it could be very difficult because as time marches on witnesses forget people pass on people move. you can't locate. evidence has been destroyed. but if there are multiple victims that come forward have the same story intptly that could corroborate each other. the police department opening up an investigation shows they must
8:08 am
have something that they believe they need to look at and go forward on. >> jean casarez, in state college, pennsylvania as always thanks a lot. appreciate it. >> reporter: thank you. joining us now from harrisburg, pennsylvania is senator bob casey who is calling for a senate hearing on the sex abuse scandal. good morning to you. thanks for being bus. >> good morning. >> do you believe, senator, that this hearing could potentially prevent something like penn state from happening in the future? >> well, the hearing i'm calling for is a particularly focused hearing as it relates to legislation that i've introduced that would deal with part of this problem and the basic problem we have across the country is that only 18 states require all adults to report instances of child abuse or suspected child abuse. pennsylvania, unfortunately, is not one of those 18. so the only people in our state that are required by law that have a legal mandate to report
8:09 am
child abuse are so-called mandated reporters and that is a list of several categories of people doctors and nurses for example, teachers but it doesn't cover all adults. what i think we should have is a national standard. the hearing i've called for in particular is to focus on this piece of legislation. >> you consulted a number of authorities, the leading authorities on child sex abuse in crafting this legislation. do they think what you have on the table goes far enough? >> well, certainly i think they would agree that it would cure one of the problems which is to say to states if you don't have a requirement that all adults have to report child abuse, that you can't get the benefit of the child abuse federal statute that provides assistance to states. but not a bill -- a bill like this won't be a guarantee that all of the horrors that the
8:10 am
victims in pennsylvania suffered from will be prevented. we have to do a whole lot of other things. we have to have more education for people who come into contact with children and we have to make sure adults have a heightened degree of responsibility, but we also have to look across the board at institutions not just an institution like a college campus, but all institutions to make sure that when the reporting is done it's done in a way that it either goes to law enforcement or to child protective services. >> the people at penn state, the professors the students they have been rather quiet in all of this amidst the scandal. why do you think that is? >> well, i don't know but i do know that the most important obligation that we have when it comes to a tragedy like this is first and foremost is to punish the predator and punish anyone who helped that predator and punish them severely. that's the number one
8:11 am
obligation i think that we have in addition to making sure that we are doing everything to help the victims. and penn state, i think has a long way to go in demonstrating that it will never allow this again to happen and it has to demonstrate it's going to help these victims. so there's still a lot of work that penn state has to do. but i also think it causes us to ask questions about a whole range of strategies that we need to employ to protect our children. >> senator bob casey of pennsylvania, thanks for being with us. we appreciate it. >> thank you. >> now here is russ. with the national debt not more than 15 trillion dollars time is running out for the so-called super committee to make a deficit reduction deal worth more than a trillion dollars. lawmakers are still holding out hope. cbs news correspondent whit johnson is in washington with the very latest. whit, good morning. >> reporter: russ, good morning. the super committee is actually hoping to reach an agreement by monday so it can be made public and reviewed before wednesday's
8:12 am
deadline. that means a heavy weekend of negotiations here on capitol hill with little progress in sight. shuffling in and out of hours of meetings on friday. >> the meeting went just fine and i'm not going to comment any further. >> the super committee talks yielded nothing more than a promise to keep trying. >> we are going to work as long as it takes to get an agreement. >> reporter: as the bipartisan group looks for $1.2 trillion in deficit reduction. two parties are caught up in the same old fight, one that nearly caused a government default in august and a government shutdown back in april. >> we are the dividers right now is on taxes and whether or not the wealthiest americans should share in the sacrifice that all of us have to make. >> reporter: earlier in the week republicans appeared willing to give a little on taxes, but wanted to make the so-called bush era tax cuts permanent. when democrats didn't buy it republicans offered a smaller, $643 billion package. it included spending cuts new
8:13 am
fees and would have closed tax loopholes for corporate jet owners. aside from its lowered amount it was hardly controversial. still, no deal. >> we are painfully, painfully aware of the deadline that is staring us in the face. >> if the super committee fails to reach an agreement before thanksgiving the automatic cuts wouldn't take effect until 2013 which would likely make deficit an issue in the next election. >> whit johnson, thanks a lot. joining us now to discuss how the super committee stalemate could impact the markets and every one of us is robert douger of hanover investments and glenn nye, a former congressman from virginia. glenn, i want to start with you. this is like groundhog day here. indecision in washington is the name of the game and has been for years now. this go-round what does that
8:14 am
indecision mean as far as the impact for all of america? >> unfortunately, this failure of the super committee to reach a deal to solve the debt problem and inspire confidence is an indicator in congress hurting america. especially at a time when america needs their leaders in washington to step up the most they seem incapable of putting asite their differences and coming together to solve this problem and that is wore yik a lot of americans. what americans are watching happen on tv what they are looking at happening is washington is they are saying there's some big issues being discussed right now some very fundamental issues when you're talking about debt reduction you're talking about people's medicare, their social security and how much they pay in washington. they are getting concerned and this is leading to a civil conflict in this country. >> rob, i mean, we have seen the civil conflict in temples of the tea party and also in terms of occupy wall street. what do you think are the nearer
8:15 am
and longer term consequences of this decision in washington and also if an agreement isn't reached what will we see happen as far as policy and the market is concerned? >> rebecca, political indecision leads to budget crises. that's what creates it. crises under mine investor confident. when we lurch from crisis to crisis we saw that last august. now we have a situation where, once again, an important institution of congress is likely to fail make an agreement. this is going to hurt the stock market regardless of what people say, it creates the impression that a crisis is more probable. as stocks fall the economy weakens, the deficit gets worse. people's fears about the commitments they have made to each other over the years, everything running from food safety to national security to medicare. all of these commitments are the fabric of our society.
8:16 am
when we have a budget crisis it's a crisis because the fabric of the society is being torn. people don't know what their relationship to each other is. that undermines markets further. >> what do we think then glenn, this is going to me for the 2012 election? it's likely to be a big issue there, especially if the indecision amounts to another question mark in terms of the economy and what happens next. >> well, as americans, what we'd like to see the 2012 election become about is a choice about how to solve this problem, who has got a better vision from moving the country forward, and who is going to be honest and lay it on the table and say to americans, look, something has to give here. the american people need to be presented with some honest choices and then they can divide which way they want to go forward. i can also tell you there is a civil conflict going on in this country because americans are concerned that when they are up against people with preference access to power in washington. the average home is saying if
8:17 am
somebody is going to lose out in this deal is it me or the guy with the lobbyist in washington? >> they expect it to be them and what we see out of the tea party as well as occupy wall street. thank you both for sharing your time and thoughts this morning. >> we are talking about this at our blog and invite people to go there. >> thank you. now to the latest ruling by the food and drug administration that could devastate some breast cancer patients. they have pulled the drug on avastin. the drug remains in the market to treat other types of cancer. joining us is dr. mala ka marshall. thanks for coming in. why is the fda doing this? >> so avastin was approved by the fda in 2008. it went through an accelerated process because there were promising preliminary trial suggesting benefits. since then we have had several studies show is doesn't improve
8:18 am
survival and it doesn't improve quality of life and it doesn't slow the regression as they had hoped. >> let's talk about the dangerous side effects. high blood pressure. bleeding blood clots. >> all medicines have side effects and avastin has particularly bad ones. you measured high blood pressure. you can get knows bleeds but in some women it can cause a blood transfusion. it cause gastrointestinal perforations. heart attack, stroke, kidney damage blood clots. it's a tough drug to take. >> avastin is available for other types of cancer? >> it's still approved for the treatment of advanced colon cancer kidney cancer lung cancer and blastoma. because it's still approved for the use of these cancers oncologist can use it off label
8:19 am
for the treatment of breast cancer. >> does the cost go up? >> it's a very expensive drug. it's usually given by i.v. every two weeks or so and for a year's course it can cause upwards of $88,000. yes, there are going to be some private insurers that are not covering it any more for breast cancer but medicare will for the time being. >> if i'm a breast cancer patient and currently using avastin, what do you do? >> it's made on a case-by-case bays. you and your oncologist can decide if you are willing to accept the possible side effects for a small benefit or if you should try other treatments out there. >> this is fairly common of the fda to take a look at drugs like this and have a ruling i guess to amend a ruling. >> they took another look at it and said it's not doing what we thought it would do.
8:20 am
>> dr. mallika marshall thank you. >> thanks russ. for more headlines of the day, here is betty nguyen. moammar gadhafi's son saif has been arrested in southern libya. libyan officials say he was captured as he tried to cross into neighboring nyjer. the international criminal court issued a warrant for his arrest several months ago. president obama had a surprise last-minute meeting in indonesia last night with china's premier. administration officials say mr. obama and the chinese premier discussed the value of china's currency which the u.s. believes is artificially low. they also talked about territorial disputes in the south china sea. the worst of a huge wildfire in reno, nevada, may be over.

9:05 am
of cross corroborations between the children and adult witnesses who saw various acts over time over a long period of time. and those are some of the major characteristics, the hallmarks of a child preference shal sex offender. the allegations cross a great span of time in this case. he has specific sexual interests. he is interested in apparently preadolescent boys. he has well developed techniques to get access to these kids and he is fantasy driven behaviors so he has all of the hallmarks of a sex offender. >> what kinds can parents look for if they are worried about a relationship their child may be having with a parental figure? >> look for people who want to spend more time with their children outside of the program. basically, if they are seeing an adult who is asking the child on
9:06 am
trips, asking to have them come over for overnight stays, even spending too much time with the child, adults typically get tired of being around young children. i mean children are sort of like puppies. they are cute and they are playful, but after awhile they start chewing on things they start getting in your way, and so the average adult will want to distance themself from a child that isn't their own child. in this case, you know this guy is described as just a big kid as, you know loving children and so forth. and those kinds of things should be, you know sort of red flags for parents. >> i see. jim clemente thank you for your insight. you take care. >> thank you, thank you, russ. time for more of this morning's headlines and for that let's go back to betty nguyen. >> good morning to you. there are reports this morning that syrian forces have launched new attacks against opponents of president bashar al sad's government. the assault one day after syria

9:33 am
that is news channel three wwmt. thanks for watching. how cute is this little guy? if you're thinking of adopting a pet this holiday season like this little guy, well, there are a lot of things you need to know about raising and training puppies so pet expert and contributor to animal planet pet 101 is mere to answer your question. great to have you with us erin. we have a lot of viewer questions. the first one from cleveland and via skype. let's take a listen. >> hi. my name is julie and this is buddy. we're from cleveland. we want to know can we feed buddy anything but his puppy food and when should we start feeding him dog food? >> well, you know, it depends on the dog, because the smaller the dog is the more quickly they develop, so if you have a dog like a maltese and yorkie they move into their adult life five or six months old. if you have a lab or st. bernard
9:34 am
mix, they are in the puppy stage until they are 7 or 8month-old. at that stage you can give them adult food. >> let's take a listen to this. >> hi andrea. i'm benny and this is our new family dog dylan. a 4 1/2-year-old rescue dog. she recently started groundhog a little bit. especially with my 11-year-old daughter and i'm a little worried. it's plaulve butyful but i worry it's going into the next level. >> the most important thing to consider is growing is a way of a dog saying i'm trying to create social distance. do not punish the dog. if you punish them for growing they will jump to next step which is biting. you need a treat pouch and fill it with yummy treats and put it our hip. everywhere you go with that dog give them things they like in exchange for giving interaction.
9:35 am
>> some sort of positive reinforcement when they are behaving well helps to go a long way. >> exactly. >> we have a question from facebook. they are jumping out of our cage! they are having fun at least. this is the facebook question. as things go nuts here on "the early show" set. this one comes from katherine, my 8-month-old dog chews on everything and joied one pair of boots and radio airpiece and two pillows and every i do given to him. any suggestions or time frame when he'll stop being a little land shark like these guys? i can't imagine how a puppy could do something it wasn't supposed to do. >> i'm trying to catch them! geez! >> puppies are a handful as you see here. they are very investigative creatures and don't like to stay focused in one environment and they want to check out the whole place and use their teeth to investigate. no surprise your puppy will want to chew things. the best thing is get food stuffable toys. i put food in here and fill it up with food. >> it's helping with one of them
9:36 am
at least stay more focused. >> what they are going to do it will act like a pacifier for your pupper and keep them focused and focus on chewing the appropriate things instead of the illegal objects. >> perfect answer. we have another question. let's take a listen. >> andrea i'm katie and this is paulo. he is about 4month-old. he is a yorkie. my problem is this little guy drinks a lot and he pees all day. he is is not 100% cleaned yet so i'm having to clean up after him a lot. is it okay to regulate his water schedule and, if so how often? >> people need to remember while you need to be concerned about your puppy becoming dehydrated due to an inadequate amount of -- >> oh, no! we need to do a rescue! >> please rescue this puppy! >> come here. there you go. you also need to consider you don't want to kill with kindness meaning giving your dog unlimited supplies of water
9:37 am
meaning they need to have to go to the bathroom on unlimited amount of time. give your puppy watering about five to seven times a day for about five minutes at a time. you can give them as much water as they want during that time. by controlling the number of waterings you're hopefully going to control the number of times a day your dog needs to eliminate which will help you to predict when they need to go which will help you with house training. >> great stuff. appreciate it. if you'd like to adopt one of these guys go to or call 516-883-7575. is there a reason that you see your aunt and uncle only once a year for thanksgiving. we have the expert advice on how to stay stress-free over turkey and stuffing. you're watching "the early show" on cbs. yoohoo, hi. i noticed you used the largest cash back card... why is that? they give me 5% cash back at department stores this quarter. but only on up to $300 worth of merchandise. so the most you can earn is $15 dollars. chase freedom also gives you 5% cash back at

and opportunity to deal with issues that need to be dealt with but probably at the big table in front of everybody. take them aside before or after when your uncle is snoring on the couch to deal with those issues but definitely not at the big table. >> i totally agree with that. i think people feel they haven't seen family in a long time so issues that have been bothering them for a while they decide this is when they want to pull them aside and feel confident because other families members are there. they might want them there or to hear the story so think now is the time to put this out on the table but it's not. it's time to share good information but if you're going through something heavy and dark this may not be the time to bring it up. the next day, over the weekend. let it be light and fun. it's to enjoy each other's companies. >> when you talk about why you've thankful talk about why you're thankful and not the way you would change the situation, correct? >> yes. it's thanksgiving. some people as a ritual will go around and talk about what they are thankful about but we are in such culture of complaining and whining you are on a down yard slope, i don't
