>> we love joe. we love joe. we love joe. >> reporter: overnight, an extraordinary scene outside of joe paterno's house. ♪ >> reporter: hundreds of students engaged in an exuberant show of support. but he also turned his attention to the victims in this case. >> there's been some criticism of the way we handled some of the poor victims. you know, my wife and i, we have 17 grandkids. from 16 to 3. and we pray for them every night. we're going to start praying for the kids that got involved in some of the problems that we talked about. >> reporter: afterwards, the students moved from paterno's house to the campus. >> it's hard for me to say. you guys, i've lived for this
place. i lived for people like you guys and girls. >> reporter: do you think he lived up to his own code of ethics on this one? >> i think he did the right thing. i think he did what he was supposed to do. >> reporter: but others, many others, disagree. the scandal centers on this man, jerry sandusky, the former top offensive coach. now accused of sexually abusing eight boys. >> unfortunately, i'm not in a position to make any statements. >> reporter: paterno was told about one of sandusky's victims. he reported it to campus officials but not to police. >> i'd like to answer them. but i can't do it now. >> reporter: and critics say that is a lapse that should cost paterno his job. >> joe paterno knew about it and did the minimum. i think he will go soon. and i think he should go soon. >> reporter: with paterno's fate hanging in the balance and the campus aflame with complex and sometimes conflicting sentiment. >> we are. >> penn state. >> we are.
>> penn state. >> we are. >> penn state. >> reporter: the emotion even spilled on to live television with former paterno player and current espn analyst, matt millen, tearing up. >> i get mad. and it's pretty disturbing. >> reporter: incredible scene there. also this morning, we're hearing that the scope of the investigation into jerry sandusky is expanding. abc news has learned that the pennsylvania state police are taking calls from more people who say they, too, were victims. meanwhile, we're hearing that jerry sandusky is under a new court order that does not allow him to be alone with even his own grandchildren. robin, back to you. >> that's very telling. dan, thank you very much. and for more, espn's jeremy schaap joins us. there's a lot of editorials calling for his ouster, as well as the president there at penn state. what do you think we're going to
hear in the next 24 hours or so? >> as dan said last night, the board of trustees was meeting not in person, on the phone. there are indications it will meet again tonight on campus, to discuss the fate of joe paterno, the fate of the university president. there will also be a meeting on friday, a public board of trustees that will be attended by the governor of pennsylvania. right now, joe paterno's future is very much in doubt. after six decades at penn state. after 45er years as the head coach. one of the most revered programs in sport. >> and respected. >> if this was happening to a coach with a different reputation, it would be a different story. so much of the anger and disappointment, is the result of the fact that people expect more from joe paterno. >> they have been so squeaky clean in all the decades that he's been there at penn state. when do we expect to hear more from him?
though, he is quite vocal. we saw last night, and it was quite telling to a lot of people. he didn't say alleged victims. he said, let's pray for the victims. >> i don't know how many up we can read into that. but he has indicated before that he believes what was brought to his attention in 2002, was factual. the graduate assistant at the time, mike mccleary, who came to him and told him he had seen something disturbing in a shower involving jerry sandusky. he said he believed what he was told. which raises further questions about paterno's actions in the immediate aftermath of what he was told. you have to wonder right now, where joe paterno's head is. so much is swirling around him. maybe there's a little bit of a disconnect. maybe he doesn't fully understand the gravity of what's going on. he's talking about beating nebraska on saturday, which is -- >> he's going to hold a press conference and talk about football. people are like, how can you -- >> that that was going to happen. and the university president canceled the press conference yesterday. paterno indicating that he was
disappointed in that decision. we are possibly, though, going to hear from him today, off-campus. there are reports that his sons are arranging an off-campus press conference today. >> thank you for your insight. from one firestorm to another. herman cain, the embattled presidential candidate held a press conference yesterday, denying all charges of sexual harassment, blaming them on a democrat machine. and promised he won't be pushed out of the race, even as another accuser has gone public with her charges. abc's brian ross spoke to her last night. and he joins us now. >> reporter: good morning, george. this is day ten of the story, with at least four different women making allegations against cain. including another one that showed her face and spoke publicly. she told me last night, that cain as a boss, can be described as a monster. yet, cain continues to call all of the accusers liars. stronger than ever in his denials and defiance. >> and as far as these accusations causing me to back
off and removing me from the presidential race, ain't going to happen. >> reporter: this is the latest accuser to identify herself. >> i'm karen kraushaar. >> reporter: just after, she addressed herman cain and left the restaurant association, with a reported $45,000 settlement. overnight, kraushaar told abc news, she tried to stay out of the news, for fear of retaliation of cain supporters. now, she has hired a security team to guard her home outside washington. cain said tuesday there was nothing to kraushaar's complaints. >> they were found to be baseless. and she could not find anyone to corroborate her story. >> reporter: cain also dismissed the allegations of sharon bialek, who said she was sexually assaulted by cain 14
years ago. he says he cannot remember meeting her. >> my first response in my mind and reaction was, i don't even know who this woman is. >> reporter: and cain went on to say that bialek was a product of a democratic smear campaign. >> now, the democrat machine in america has brought forth a troubled woman. >> reporter: and of course, last week, cain blamed the rival campaign of governor rick perry. >> we've been able the trace it back to the perry campaign. that stirred this up in order to discredit me. >> reporter: the larger question, of course, is what do the allegations, if true, say about a candidate for president? >> sexual harassment is a power move. it is a demonstration that you are more powerful and you are if you are, superior, to the person you are harassing. >> reporter: overnight, the associated press reported that kraushaar had another complaint with another employer four years
after leaving the restaurant association, complaining of unfair treatment on the job after she was in a car accident. now, she and bialek say they want to hold a joint appearance with the other two accusers so they can all tell the stories of herman cain, with the safety in numbers. let's get more on this now, from republican strategist, mary matalin. thanks for joining us this morning. i know you believe that herman cain gave a powerful press conference yesterday. enough to put this to rest? >> if he stays unequivocal and he stays as nondefensive about it. but he needs to quit being an operative. he needs to quit casting blame and ascribing motives to opponents, either democrats or republicans. but his deny was powerful and believable. what you can get out of the bubble, it's helpful to transport yourself to a kitchen table in central iowa. and you're looking at a life
where the cost of everything has gone up. and the value of everything has gone down. and you see the candidacy of this guy, who is not a politician who epitomizes everything about america. and the media is sensationalist, and/or biased. >> i think you are right that the people would rather have the campaign focus on other things. but this is front and center right now. and cain was so unequivocal yesterday. but to believe him, you have to believe that all four accusers are lying. can you hold that line even if they all go public? >> well, he's been accused of -- here's the accusations. one said she was repulsed because he said you're as tall as my wife. one said she was repulsed because he had dinner with two of them. no advances made. and the really truly repulsive, if it's true, but clearly does not fit a pattern of his life.
and it doesn't comport what we know about his life. so, it's a little bit different than a he said/she said. and people do, i'm not condoning harassment. i don't want to get ridiculous e-mails. but we went through a period of this grievance industry, of feminists who want to be offended find a way to be offended. and there's not a lot of charges other than the one that he flatly denies that come close to being assault or harassment. >> we know there were two agreements. you saw yesterday mitt romney and newt gingrich come out farther than they have before, saying that herman cain has to address them. romney called them disturbing. they are trying to create some space there. >> when prompted, what cain said about romney, he said harassment and assault is horrible. and saying that herman cain has to answer to these, and he did
answer to them, i don't think he could have answered it anymore powerfully. now, he has to quit being an operative. get to iowa. he has a new spot up today. and keep talking to voters where their sweet spot is. and this is not where their sweet spot is. >> he's not out of this? >> i don't think by a long shot. >> okay, mary matalin, thanks very much. now, let's go to josh elliott with the news. >> good morning to both of you and to all of you. we're going to begin with disturbing news about the treatment of u.s. service members killed in battle. three officials at dover air force base have been disciplined for mishandling remains. in at least two cases, body parts were lost. in another case, a fallen marine was dismembered to fit into his uniform. this morning, an investigation faults the air force for not taking full responsibility for those cases. and oil prices are on the rise, after new reports that iran is months away from being able to build a nuclear bomb. any conflict in the persian gulf
could affect oil shipments. iran says its nuclear abilities are for energy and research only. prime minister silvio berlusconi has announce head will resign. but that's not calming the markets. italian borrowing costs set a new record today, raising fears that italy will need a bailout. and movoters in mississippi have defeated an initiative that would declare that life begins at inception. a big victory for labor unions. voters in ohio have overturned a law that limited the collective bargaining rights of public workers. finally, in san diego, preparations under way to turn the deck of a u.s. air force carrier into a basketball arena. take a look. they're putting up stands on "the uss carl vinson." it's the first basketball game on an aircraft carrier friday. it will be part of espn's
veterans day coverage. and along with hannah storm, i had the pleasure of being a part of it the last couple years. the spectators expected to include president obama. >> and they have plans if it rains to go below the deck. >> if they are in a place -- san diego. i think they won't be needing the lower deck. >> let's hope not. welcome back from nashville. >> thank you. and we're going to show you how nashville stays dry for the cma awards tonight. let's show you where the rainmaker is in the middle of the country. from new orleans to the great lakes. the punch of the storm is around the low here. you can see the snow in the back. some places in iowa getting up to six inches of snow. here -- here's who gets the rain today. as we watch it go all the way up. i don't know. i wasn't working yet. detroit, travers city, chicagoland, indianapolis, cincinnati, all getting heavy rain today. louisville, as well. nashville, you will probably get your rain early in the morning but not in the later day hours.
>> and, yes, indeed, san diego, notoriously one of the driest places in the country. mice and mild today and through the week. now, to the breaking report that a private investigator working for rupert murdoch, "news of the world," was spying on prince william. nick watt has the latest from london. good morning, nick. >> reporter: good morning, robin. well, we all know that journalists will stoop pretty low for a scandal or a scoop. but this morning, a new low. some royals and celebrities were being watched. and they had no idea. this is derek webb, retired cop, paid by "the news of the world" newspaper, to tail and spy on prince william. logging where he went, who he
met, what he was wearing. undetected by royal security. >> they had no idea. that proves my expertise in relation to it, that they was not aware they were being followed. and this happened on quite a few occasions. >> reporter: webb worked for the paper for years. apparently tailing targets including angelina jolie, samen could, paul mccartney, and daniel radcliffe. he often took orders from the paper's royal editor. >> he would tell me to go to the airport and follow chelsy davy, who was prince harry's girlfriend. >> reporter: that royal editor has served time for hacking the voicemails of royal staff. and last summer, the paper owned by rupert murdoch's news international, shocked in the scandal. politicians, movie stars, murder victims and allegedly, kate and her family. but what webb did, this is his
actual surveillance footage of a well-known soccer player. this is not illegal in prison. >> but the list of people i've seen, i would find it incredibly difficult to justify, you know, what were they looking at simon cowell for? >> reporter: though spying on royalty is not illegal. but certainly disconcerting for those who seek detail. and that investigator has told the bbc, quote, i don't feel ashamed. if i wasn't doing it, somebody else would be. now, tomorrow, rupert murdoch's son, james, comes before a committee to talk about the phone hacking. and he will face a grilling on this spying, as well. >> not over yet. >> sure did last time. >> nick, thanks. coming up, the gripping moments from inside the jury room during the trial of conrad the first jackson juror breaks her silence. a "gma" exclusive. and dan and nancy weigh in, as well. and the latest on the bieber baby scandal. why he's fueling the fight over

walking in with jim avila is the first jackson juror, to speak out, talking exclusively to "gma" about deciding the fate of conrad murray. we're going to hear from juror number five. and then, dan and nancy will weigh in live. >> nancy just going around the clock. she'll be here later talking about her final dance in the ballroom. she did have a great season.
>> one shy of the semis. and justin bieber, he can't seem to stop tweeting about the baby scandal. and it's time for somebody to take that blackberry away. >> the story might go away. but he keeps tweeting about it, talking about it. let's look at elisabeth leamy. our live "show me the money" team. they have a van now. they have a fat check. going to give it to that restaurant owner. he has no idea how much money he's getting this morning. >> that big check should be a clue. let's get right to the abc news exclusive, inside the jury room of the conrad murray trial. the first juror to speak out sat down with jim avila. and he joins us now. good morning, jim. >> reporter: good morning, george. behind the closed doors of the jury room and inside those secret deliberations for the first time, the first conrad murray juror tells "gma," that, in fact, the trial was long. the jury was split at the beginning. and the nine hours of deliberations were not easy.
>> i think we really did our job. >> reporter: she is juror number five, debbie franklin, the 48 mother of two, a paralegal, put in charge of ringing the buzzer, to tell the judge and the world a verdict had been reached. >> our hearts were pounding to go out there. >> reporter: franklin is the first and only juror to reveal what went on inside the jury room. in our exclusive interview, she says while nearly all the jurors had decided on guilt during the first day of deliberations, not everyone was convinced that dr. murray was solely responsible for michael jackson's death. >> towards the end of the day, we finally took a vote. it was not unanimous. and we talked a little more about it. let's think about it over the weekend. it was stressful. we did -- yelling and we had to keep saying, nobody talk while this person is talking. raise your hand if you have something to say. >> reporter: it was not until monday morning that the majority was able to convince everyone, that not only was conrad murray
negligent, his mistakes led directly to the death of michael jackson. do you think that michael jackson would be alive today if it were not for the mistakes of conrad murray? >> yes. absolutely. he had addictions. he asked other doctors to do it. they said no. he was looking for somebody to say yes. and conrad murray said yes. >> reporter: juror number five said dr. murray is responsible for killing jackson for three reasons. not calling 911. not having medical backup equipment in the room. and leaving his patient alone. >> when he came back, conrad murray said he was alive. he wasn't breathing. but he had a pulse. he had the monitor on his finger. at that point, he was alive, according to conrad murray. if he would have had the medical equipment there, if it was the airway that was blocked, he had nothing. >> reporter: and while the jury thought conrad murray was a nice guy that didn't mean to kill michael jackson, they decided he as a doctor should have known better and found him guilty of
involuntary manslaughter. was it a show of hands vote? >> it was a show of hands at that point. and we asked everybody to write it down. we actually had the written paper of 12 guilty votes. >> reporter: the jury was ushered out of the courtroom before the judge decided to send conrad murray directly to jail. but this juror, at least, had no regrets, seeing the former doctor led off in handcuffs. >> i never gave it a second thought of what was happening back in the courtroom. but i saw later on tv, it didn't shock me. but i assumed that if somebody's found guilty they're taken right from the courtroom. i don't think he was going to say, go home. >> reporter: juror number five said she had no opinion on how long the sentence should be for conrad murray. she is a said she did her job. and said that she is glad sentencing is up to the judge. let's get more from our legal team, nancy grace and legal analyst dan abrams. nancy, i have to begin with you.
the queen of multitasking. fascinating accounts from the juror right there. from what you heard, did the jury do their job well? >> they did. it sounds as if that there was a lot of -- let me just say -- heated discussion, to a point where they were raising their hands to -- not to interrupt each other. and that lively discourse, has been discussed, is what you want in a jury room. and also, the fact they broke and they slept on it for a couple days over the weekend is a good thing. i don't think there's going to be any problem with, for instance, jury tampering, jury problems, jury misconduct, in an appeal, which is sure to come. >> i was amazed at how quickly they were able to reach a verdict, then. hearing her say they were this divided on friday. and they come back, and by midday, early in the day monday, they've been able to convince those people is pretty amazing. also, i was struck by the issue
of cause of death. she seems to be saying, in effect, no matter why michael jackson became -- came to the situation he was in, meaning whether michael jackson injected it himself or it was dr. murray, the fact is, dr. murray still could have saved him. >> yeah. he could have survived. >> i thought that was an interesting comment. >> nancy, now, we get to the issue of sentencing. juror number five says she has done her job. but the defense team will argue for probation only. >> if you look at the road sign that the judge has given us. he said point-blank at the time the verdict came in he said this is not a mistake in judgment. this ended in a death of a human being. that's a big sign to me that he's going to give jail time. of course, the maximum is only four years. so, given the prison overcrowding in not only california, but all across the
country, it's going to turn into a nicole richie, paris hilton sort of thing, where conrad murray gets jail time by the judge. but state guidelines will let murray out early. we'll also see murray angling to stay in a county jail and not go into a state facility such as san quentin, where scott peterson is. that way he can stay close to home and probably have more privileges. those privileges have already started because he's in the celebrity wing of the jail. basically, the medical unit. he'll probably get a private jail cell and special treatment. >> i don't know about that. but -- >> he's already there, dan. >> but the celebrity wing? you make it sound like it's nice and cushy there. the bottom line is -- >> have you ever been there? >> yeah, actually, i have. but not -- yeah. >> through tv, internet. >> the bottom line is that suggests already that somehow conrad murray -- >> probably watching you right now, dan. >> i'm sure he is. and he's already getting special
treatment. it's a nice cliche. but really, i don't see anything to indicate that dr. murray is getting sort of beneficial treatment here. the reality is, that if he gets treated like everyone else, nancy's going to go nuts, which is, if he is released because of overcrowding, the same way that everyone else is -- >> he will. >> he will. he will. >> dan, here's the deal. you know what g.p., general population is like. they probably like michael jackson tunes. and they probably would not like the guy that killed michael jackson. so, he's getting special treatment right now by being in a medical unit. you get your meals are delivered differently. your meals can even be different from everyone else's. you're not in general population. you got it good. it's already starting for conrad murray. >> the fact they're protecting him from getting harmed in prison means he's getting special treatment. is that what you're saying? >> i didn't say he's going to get harmed. i say he's getting special
treatment. you.not an issue, dan. it's a revolving door, due to overcrowding. the judge could sentence him to four years. but that's going to be superseded by the fact that he can't stay there due to overcrowding. i think this is a violent crime. but i don't think they're going to agree with me. >> i don't think he'll get four years, either. i think he'll get a lesser sentence. >> and he's already gotten a payday. he's gotten up to $500,000 for the documentary. >> i've got to say two things. first of all, nancy grace, congratulations. you are awesome, all right? you are absolutely awesome. >> thank you. >> the cartwheel the other night. >> dan, abrams. i should teach you to do a cartwheel. >> if you can teach me -- >> okay. that's our next segment. nancy is going cartwheels right here in times square. sam, are you going to join them? >> no. i will not join them. but i will say this. my friend, nancy grace, looks as
good as she did 20 years ago. fantastic. nancy, you look beautiful. it's such a pleasure to see you. i can't wait to see you in person. >> thank you, sam. >> one or two things going on we want to talk about. as we show you, a low pressure moving out of the way. these are the strong storms that were in texas yesterday. let's show you pictures that happened in all of houston in the kingwood area. this is to the right if you're going north of the bush airport. and there's a lot of damage from at least five or six reported tornados in the state of texas yesterday. it is less damaging as the storm moves east. it's more rain around the great lakes. and there will be cold air that

and nobody really, really knew. but it was definitely a love story. obviously, you can love a person. and whether it goes into the realm of being gay or not, neither here nor there, as far as i'm concerned. >> it's clear that hoover, in the film, is a man who loves his country. but it's hard to determine whether believing he was good or bad for the country. >> i believe he probably was good for the country. now, whether he became obsolete at some point in his life or wasn't keeping up with changes as fast as they were coming down, we don't know. >> let them know that i have a copy of my own in safekeeping. >> reporter: leo dicaprio was here, talking to robin. and he said one of the things he loved about working with you is if you don't like something, you just say so. >> that's true. >> did you say that a bunch to leo? >> no. he's a terrific -- very diligent actor. and he tried very hard to me as much as he could about hoover
and get a great impression that he could pass on through this interpretation. >> you're with your bureau seven years. and that bureau is now gone, sir. and so are you. >> now that i have you here, i have to ask you, a few weeks back. james baker, former secretary of state, campaign manager for george bush back in 1988. he gave an interview to the george bush library. he said that was 18 points behind. and asked you to be on the ticket for vice president. did you know about that? >> no, i didn't. >> what would you have done if they came to you? >> i would have said i want to be the first part of the ticket. why would i want to play a supporting role? >> only to lead. >> only to lead. >> one final question. i know you supported john mccain last time around. do you have a candidate yet? >> i have to wait and see. a lot of good people want the
job. i don't know why, particularly. but that's just my own opinion. >> you said you wanted it. >> well, yeah. i've changed my mind sense. >> i get it. the movie is fantastic. it is powerful. "j. edgar." >> thank you, george. thanks for having me. >> a terrific guy. and "j. edgar" opens this week. now, let's go to sam and the weather. >> good morning, everybody. we're live at the patch,ed a broadway farms. pumpkinpalooza is coming up. you have to have a canon. we can fire these things straight down broadway. it's probably not safe. let's get to the boards. one or two things going on we want to talk about. we'll start with our twitter pictures. there is a great fog bank. my boss said there's a great fog bank developing around the g.w. bridge. we didn't get a picture of it. oregon, lowell, mass. that's the boston, maine, the
old train that goes through lowell, mass, there. oklahoma city, dallas, san antonio, you're in better shape today. the storms have moved out. but you're dropping by about 15 degrees. it's cooler and drier. milder down in the southwest, where it hasn't been comfortable yet. but we start the warmup around 76 degrees. earlier in the show, we showed you they were setting up a football game on top of -- basketball game. sports. on top of a ship out there. and we think it won't . >> all that weather was brought to you by hallmark. coming up, a brand-new way
today is a big day for us here at "good morning america." we'll get to the specifics in just a moment. but we're doing having very cool with google and their knew social media platform, google plus. who is google plus? who better to tell us about it than becky worley, via skype. >> hello, everyone. i know what you're thinking. another social media site. do i have to go to one more site to check in with my friends? well, let me tell you something. this one is from google. when google goes to something, they go big. a while back, you joined myspace. you went to facebook. you went to tumbler, flickr. maybe you also skype with your dpamly.
why would you need another media tool? the folks at google are trying to answer that. >> google plus is a great way to share with the people who matter in your life. >> like other sites, you post pictures, links, random videos. who knew google had a slide at their headquarters? i like that. but what's different is when it comes to the people you want to keep up with, as you join, you categorize them into circles. >> family circles. co-worker circles. college buddy circles. >> reporter: you want to find out what's up with old friends? one click and that's all you'll see. maybe the guys you play hoops with. parents from your kids' class. you can isolate their news, too. when you post something, you're choosing who to share it with. friends and family? sure. maybe there's some things you don't want your work people to see. google plus has a few other cool features. notably, live video hangouts. hi, josh.
>> oh. hi, guys. how is your day out there on the other side of the country? >> reporter: these can be as simple as video chatting with a friend. or maybe a group of friends. >> are we on? >> we're on. >> reporter: so, if you're up for something new, go over and check out google plus. you might find some friends there already. your favorite tech reporter. and maybe even your favorite morning show. now, let me be clear. the beauty of this social network is that you can be very selective about what you share with whom. so, yeah, josh. i've got you in my circle. but we're going to have to hang out more if you want to be in the inner circle. >> wow. look at that. i have to work my way in concentrically. i appreciate that. this is relatively new. but it has 40,000-plus users? >> it's really taken off in the tech community.
it's a way to follow press, any of the shows you like. and people that you want to stay close with and just selectively choose -- it may not replace facebook. but it's definitely got things to offer that are different. >> definitely gotten to the watering hole, if nothing else. you can join me and becky on google-plus at 9:30 a.m. "good morning america's" brand-new page. we'll be answering questions. however personal or maybe we might be avoiding some of those. thank you, becky. >> pleasure. and coming right up, spice up your thanksgiving.
