tv   New Day With John Berman and Brianna Keilar  CNN  May 11, 2022 5:00am-6:00am PDT

5:00 am
cnn projects republican jim pillen, trump backed herbster, even though he's facing allegations of sexual misconduct which he denied. trump put a lot into this race. trump himself delivered a nearly two-hour speech at a rally for herbster, ten days ago. this serves as a political appetizer for some extremely high profile primaries coming up, including pennsylvania, where trump has put a lot on the line and the outcome anything but certain. >> joining us now, cnn senior political correspondent and anchor of "inside politics su sunday" abby phillip. so i know you're watching these. what does this mean to you? so late. what does this mean to you -- i was asleep -- what does this mean to you that he makes the difference in the congressional race in west virginia but not in the governor's race in nebraska, in the primary? >> i think there are some local factors going on here. believe it or not, west virginia is in a lot of ways still kind
5:01 am
of a single party state. you know, the state had -- used to have a long tradition of democrats having a presence there, but really it boiled down to joe manchin and i think that result seems to indicate that the sort of joe manchin wing is very small and it certainly is not large enough to overcome trump's dominance in that state. but when you look at nebraska, you have the added factor here of an actual scandal, credible sexual assault allegations against herbster in the last several weeks of this campaign, and it seems that even trump can't overcome that. trump may be able to get away with a lot when it comes to those kinds of allegations, but he can't transfer that over to other candidates in a lot of cases. it is not the first time that trump has endorsed candidates who have been accused of misconduct, he did it in alabama, with roy moore, he did it in pennsylvania, prior to that -- his candidate -- chosen
5:02 am
candidate dropping out of the race, and in this case, in nebraska, he couldn't make the difference in a situation in which those allegations were credible and including one brought by a republican official in the state, who i think voters -- they look at that and they say who do i believe here. >> i wonder when you're looking towards pennsylvania what you're seeing. because what we see now say race that is pretty tied up, right, as you look at the republicans there in this race for pat toomey's seat. what do you think this portends for that? >> well, pennsylvania, is going to be very, very interesting. there are a lot of dynamics happening here, but dr. oz, who trump has endorsed, has not been able to pull away from the rest of the field. and it is actually a quite large primary field for pennsylvania republicans, and you're starting to see people weren't talking
5:03 am
about kathy barnette a couple of days ago. they're talking about her now because as voters are making their decision, trump's endorsement is on the table, they are now splitting their vote between three main candidates and barnette who is campaigning as a kind of ultra trump republican is actually gaining ground. and so i do think this is going to be really fascinating. you have a republican party that is very, very split here. there is oz, who a lot of republicans don't think deserved the trump endorsement but got it anyway. >> he's gained some ground. >> he's gained a little bit of ground, but it is clearly not enough that he is the clear favorite here. i think that most people who are looking at the race in pennsylvania see it right now as a jump ball, and if you're dr. oz, that's not really where you want it to be about a week out from when voters go to the polls. >> jonathan martin and alex burns out with a new book, and they have some sound actually of
5:04 am
senator lindsey graham talking about joe biden, just after the january 6th insurrection. and here's what he said about joe biden. >> he'll actually come out of this stronger. moments like this reset. people will calm down. people will say, i don't want to be associated with that. this is a -- what this does, it would be a rallying effect for a while, the country says we're better than this. >> and biden -- >> he'll be -- maybe the best person to have, right? i mean, how mad can you get at joe biden? >> i wonder what kind of forecaster you think he is, but also what you think about what he said about biden there. >> i think people should remember that lindsey graham and joe biden used to actually be friends.
5:05 am
i mean, in real life, not just washington friends. and not long after biden was elected, he would sometimes say, you know, lindsey graham used to be my friend and i don't know what happened. there has been a rift between these two men and it is interesting to see that even in the days after, you know, january 6th, graham still kind of was his old self. what has happened, i think this is the important part, is that republican officials in washington are following the lead of the electorate. they all changed their minds about what january 6th would mean for trump, what january 6th would mean for their party, when they realized that their voters didn't really care. and that's the lesson here. i think a lot of people wonder are they leading people -- you know, leading the rank and file in a particular direction when it comes to trump.
5:06 am
no,ly the other way around. the rank and file is largely -- in lockstep with trump. so i think that tells us a lot about where this is headed. you can't expect you know washington establishment republicans to do what i think some people like liz cheney want them to do, which is to say, you know, right is right, wrong is wrong, we're going in this direction, even though we know the popular opinion is somewhere else. lindsey graham, kevin mccarthy, so many others, even mitch mcconnell are evidence that that's not really how the politics really works here. they all want to get re-elected. they all want to remain in power. they're going to follow the lead of their voters. >> they certainly are. abby, thank you so much for being with us this morning. catch abby on "inside politics su sunday" at 8:00 a.m. ahead, we're going to be joined by the chair of the judiciary committee, senator dick durbin, ahead of today's anticipated vote on codifying roe v. wade into law. overnight, ukrainian
5:07 am
officials said their troops managed to push back russian forces from the northern city of kharkiv. you can see a yellow and blue flag flying in a town outside kha kharkiv, recaptured by ukrainian forces. on the side of the road, abandoned and burned out russian military vehicles. drone footage shows ukrainian troops targeting a russian t-95 tank in kharkiv. but more fighting might be coming. ukraine says putin is diverting troops north into the region. want to bring in retired u.s. army major mike lyons. thank you for being with us. can you show us what you think is happening in the kharkiv region, the success the ukrainians have had and now the countermeasures being taken by the russians. >> sure, john. if you go to kharkiv here, you see what is taking place here, the yellow on the map here shows the advances of the ukraine military. as they have gotten up every day to kill and capture and destroy russian equipment. what happened now is put a circle around it, now inoculated
5:08 am
against any kind of artillery fire. so the city is somewhat safe now. the yellow regions threaten belgorod if they want to do artillery. let's come and face east here. this is the next objective here, i believe, for the ukraine military. as russian forces have -- are going to be forced now to leave izyum, places in the south and the don bassbas region to reinf this town, the major logistical supply point for where the russians are getting logistics and communications coming in. the fact they have to withdraw from that main fight in the donbas, in this region here, they're having some success here, kramatorsk, but the fact they have to take troops offline to this area to bring them back here, tremendous failure from the military perspective. >> so the ukrainians are having enough success around kharkiv that in a way it is hampering the rest of the russian efforts in donbas. they're having to move troops? >> absolutely. what happened is the 20 or so
5:09 am
battalion tactical groups that russia deployed into the region after failing in kyiv have been grinded up, virtually spit out and had to move 40 or so, 40 or 50 in the region so far, and replace them. the thing is, this area is just too big, too big an area for 40 or 50 battalion tactical groups to try to do anything offensively. so, again, russia gets up every day, their primary mission is to take land. and they're failing miserably at it. they have tremendous capability to do that. ukraine military gets up every day with one mission, kill and destroy russian equipment, kill and capture russian soldiers. the bottom line is russia doesn't have enough to keep them on the offensive and it forced them, again to do things like this, come back to places like -- to make sure they have the logistical supply chain they need. >> do they have enough to keep it a stalemate? that's one thing we have been hearing the last few days, if russia wants to stay where it is right now, what happens?
5:10 am
>> well, the equipment pouring in from the west is going to provide the ukraine military the artillery in particular it is going to give them an advantage. the standoff. so if you put a zone that exists here, we can shoot fire, the ukraine military can shoot into a deeper spot than the russians can fire back at ukraine in terms of artillery. that's the advantage that western artillery will bring to this fight and it is pouring in. pouring in with howitzers. we're seeing tremendously accurate and precise artillery fires in this region as part of this battle. they can hold off if the russians don't move, the russians don't learn, they don't maneuver, they don't break out and the ukraine military can get that equipment to the spot. >> mike lyons, i really appreciate it. that was an education. thank you, sir. overnight, an al jazeera journalist shot and killed in the west bank. what israeli and palestinian officials are saying this

5:16 am
incoherent. i have no idea how to fly the airplane. >> 333, what's your position? >> i have no idea. i have no idea. >> what is the situation with the pilot? >> he is incoherent. he's out. >> 311 delta roger. try to hold the wings level and see if you can start descending for me. push forward on the controls and at a very slow rate. >> with us now, the voice from the tower, captain robert morgan, the air traffic controller who helped that passenger land the plane safely. captain morgan, it is amazing to have you here and have this outcome of this story. can you just tell us what happened here, just walk us through it. >> well, i was on break and i got a page, hey, come to the -- immediately. i was, like, that's not a good
5:17 am
situation. i rush over there, i walk in, and the room is really busy, and it is just a really dark room with the radar scopes and they're, like, hey, this pilot is incapacitated, the passenger is flying the plane, they have no flying experience. so i said, oh, boy. so i walked over to the radar scope and they're just like here's the frequency is on, and it was an emergency radio, so it is a weird situation for us. so just, like, kind of took a deep breath and said i'm talking to him now, they said, you're talking to him, i said, i can't just be quiet, i got to start doing my job, try to do what i can do to get them on the ground safely. so i have experience as a flight instructor, so that really helped me to kick in, to kind of explain to him what to do. so i said, well, let's bring him to the biggest airport and so i just started kind of vectoring him toward -- to parallel the shoreline, and just told him to make shallow turns, slow
5:18 am
descents, and i brought him in to palm beach international, because we have the biggest runway around there. and i just tried to give him a nice stable approach, a tried to keep him calm. he was really calm. he said, hey, i just don't know how to -- i don't know how to fly. i don't know how to stop this thing if i do get it on the runway. don't worry about it, we'll take it one step at a time. i just brought him out for about an eight-mile final, just so he could just is a really big target to aim at. and i just kept him calm, and he staid really calm and i just kind of talked him through the -- everything, i told him how to use the brakes, when he got on the runway and just to reduce the power just so he could start a slow descent to try to land on the runway. about 300 feet he kind of disappeared off our radar scopes, and i said, hey, can you still hear me, i didn't want him to get nervous, and he said, yeah, i'm still here, i said,
5:19 am
okay, when you get closer to the runway, it is going to get bigger, that's when you want to really reduce your power, and the plane just landed and he said, okay, how do i stop this thing? i said, just hit the top of your brakes, and it will come to a stop. and he said, all right, do you want me to taxi off the runway? i felt like i was going to cry then because i had so much adrenaline built up, but i was really happy it worked out, nobody got hurt. >> captain morgan, let me pick my jaw up off the floor for a moment. i just don't understand, you make it sound so easy. and it couldn't have been that easy. and you're so calm, and you couldn't have been that calm. how do you tell a guy -- first of all, you've never flown this plane, right? you've never flown this model? >> no. i have flown something similar, but not a caravan. there was a kodiak. >> how do you talk someone through this, is it as specific as, you know, turn the wheel to
5:20 am
the right, 45 degrees, push it in, i just don't get how you explain so carefully for someone to do something they have never done before. >> well, luckily the passenger flying has been around aviation a little bit, but he wasn't a pilot and he didn't have any flying experience. just been traveling. so he only has seen what the pilots have done. but, you know, in the air, as long as they make small control movements, it is usually a lot of people can fly the plane okay, but, you know, someone had mentioned earlier, landing is the tricky part. and he had a little balance on the landing, but couldn't ask for anything better because we had really bad winds, but just since he was a calm person, i'm kind of a calm person, we're kind of able to work together as a team. and i had a lot of my co-workers and other facilities also participated to keep everybody calm and get him to a big
5:21 am
runway, a big target he could land. i knew if we could get him close enough to the runway, have the power back on the plane, that he would be successful one way or another they would be okay. >> so you got to meet him, right? what did you talk to him about? >> i did get to meet him. he came over after he cleared everything up because they had to clear customs. and he just gave me a big hug, like, thank you so much. i said, man, i'm just glad you're okay. and it was an emotional moment. and he said that he just wanted to get home to his pregnant wife, and that felt even better, i knew, okay, he's got a family and everybody is counting on him to be there. but he was very thankful and my whole facility was really happy, you know. they counted me as the hero, but in my eyes he was the hero. but i was just doing my job. i have a little bit of extra
5:22 am
training with flying, but it all just kind of came together that day. i had a lot of people give me instruction in the past, and kind of lead me the right way and it all just kind of came together. >> was there ever a moment where you weren't so sure? even have time to think about well, what if this doesn't work out? >> yeah. those thoughts kind of run through your head, but i had to fight through them. because i was kind of thinking, like, oh, why does this have to be me? but i just kind of worked past it, we can do this, we can do this. that's it. i just had to keep pep talking myself in my head. >> real quick before we let you go, you now have seen video of the landing. on a scale of one to ten, you would give it what? >> he definitely gets a ten in my book. >> it was pretty good. i mean, you wouldn't have known. captain morgan, thank you so much. i think it is just a testament to the teamwork that you two had, but what a beautiful outcome.
5:23 am
thanks for sharing it with us. >> thank you. have a great day. >> i hope there is a baby named captain morguenan in a few mont right? >> it is the end of an era for a music icon. plus, brand-new dash cam footage shows the moment an alabama inmate and the corrections officer who helped him escape were taken down by police. >> and tensions rising this morning after an al jazeera journalist shot and killed in the west bank. when you're tired of looking at your tired old bath, we fit your style, with hundreds of design options. bath fitter. it just fits. visit bathfifitter.com to book your free consultation. at vanguarard, you're more than just an investor, you're an owner with access to financial advice, tools and a rsonalized plan that helps you build a future for those you love. vanguard. become an owner. ♪

time now for "5 things" to know for your "new day." the senate is set to vote today on a bill to preserve access to abortion nationwide. majority leader chuck schumer calls it one of most important votes senators will take this century. judiciary committee chairman dick bouush durbin will join usk about what is at stake. shireen abu akleh fatally shot while covering the conflict in the west bank. she was kill edkilled, a second journalist was also shot and injured. new dash cam video shows the arrest of recaptured alabama inmate casey white in indiana. more video also shows white's return to alabama last night as police escorted him to his first court appearance since his escape. so james cromwell, the actor, sticking it to starbucks for charging extra for

5:30 am
this has of passing? >> it is a long shot. we need 60 votes under the senate rules to enact a law. i don't believe we will have 60 today. but every member of the senate will go on record. do you want to overturn roe v. wade, that's what this is all about. if you want to vote that way, be my guest. but put us in a situation where we're taking away a basic freedom that has been guaranteed by the constitution and the court for 50 years is significant, historic, and senators should be on the record. >> you say it is a long shot. isn't that an exaggeration? doesn't it really have a zero percent chance of passing today? >> optimism is part of my makeup. i don't know i could handle this job if i were not an optimistic person. but i know the reality. >> putting people on the record, what does that get you? >> perhaps attention of the electorate, they have the final word, and in this basic decision as to whether roe v. wade will be overturned.
5:31 am
if it is, be prepared. we already have signals from legislatures across the united states of the extreme positions they're going to take. in fact, senator mitch mcconnell, the republican leader in the senate, said it is possible that we will just outright ban any abortion procedures across america. >> you say it is in the public's hands, it isn't, it is in the supreme court's hands and we saw that draft opinion from samuel alito, a little more information from politico today. this is from politico, an article, justice samuel alito sweeping a blunt draft majority opinion from february overturning roe v. wade remains the court's only circulated draft in the pending mississippi abortion case, politico learned, and none of the conservative justices who initially sided with alito have to date switched their votes. that is according to politico this morning. surprise? >> well, i don't know how much we can value their information when you get down to the basics of five individual justices and
5:32 am
how they plan on voting on this historic removal of the right or freedom that has been guaranteed for 50 years. some people say that it was leaked by the alito court, hanging on to the five who may have been wavering. others view it as possibly from a source on the other side of the equation. but the bottom line is the decision will be made individually. i might add quickly that two of the justices counted in the five supporting alito really testified before our senate judiciary committee and made it clear that they thought the decision roe v. wade was a superprecedent and would not be overturned. >> i asked you about what it would do, what this show vote does today, whether it changes anything. and obviously the answer is immediately no. there are democrats who want to see more, who want to see the senate do more, perhaps throw open the filibuster, get rid of the filibuster, so you can take the vote in the senate to codify
5:33 am
the right to choice. what do you say to them, who say you have to do more than a show vote? >> i think after this vote you'll see that the -- any assault on the rules at this point or change in the rules at this point is a long shot as well. we have to accept the reality, the reality is that the constitution gives the american people the last word in this important debate and that last word will be exercised this november, assuming the alito opinion goes forward, the voters will decide who will be on in the senate, vote ing on this issue in the days to come. >> if you were to get rid of the filibuster now, if you ended up in the minority after november, it may actually put certain rights or things in jeopardy including you were talking about mitch mcconnell trying to nationalize perhaps, you said, you know, a ban on abortion, maybe give mcconnell a path to do that. >> it certainly -- when you look at it, you have to understand that every two years the tables can turn. and if they turn, you know what
5:34 am
will be the ultimate result. i've been here long enough to have seen them turn a few times, but i know this, the republicans in the senate led by mitch mcconnell have been bound and determined for at least four straight years to load up the supreme court and federal courts across america to achieve this result. not only to overturn roe v. wade, but to win in their culture wars, which is a war as well on contraception, on gay marriage, on basic rights that americans just assume were part of our future. they want to change that. that's what this election is all about. >> so, there have been protests outside the home of the supreme court justices. ed beforely broadly speaking, how do you feel about that? >> stay away from homes and families of elected officials on the court. y to go after them in their homes, to do anything of a threatening nature and certainly anything violent is absolutely reprehensible. >> your friend chuck schumer, majority leader, says he has
5:35 am
protesters outside his house four days a week. he dismissed the notion that it is in and of itself a threat. you disagree with that? >> i think when it comes to the home of an elected official, that's over the line. it happened to me. i think it happened to most of us in elected position. if we want to bring women and men in this position, and accept the responsibility and controversy, we have to have reasonable lines drawn to respect their families. >> big day ahead for you. thank you so much for being with us this morning. >> good to be with you. a key consumer report just released has inflation reached its peak? and paris hilton is back on the hill. what she's asking the white house and congress to do. she's going to join us live. you know liberty mutual customizes your car insurance, so you only pay for what you need? like how i customized this scarf? check ouout this backpack i made for marco. only pay for w what you need. ♪liberty.y. liberty. liberty. liberty.♪ refresesh italiano

incredibly important numbers here. when you look over the past 12 months, you got the inflation rate, the annual inflation rate up 8.3%. last month it was 8.5%. so a bit of a cooling there. month over month, from march to april, up 0.3%. so, again, that was a cooling. last month, that was more than 1.2%, that was a troubling number last month. you're seeing some moderation in the numbers. you look at the line chart of how this looks, it has been really troubling and red hot for some time. but now the first signs of cooling since about august, right, since last august, the first time you've seen that overall number slip back a little bit. here is where the pain is really felt, though.really reiterate, these are persistent and high numbers. we're looking for saigns of peaking. you see used car prices, anyone trying to buy a car will tell you that this is a really tough time and it costs a lot of money to try to get a new or used car. food prices and shelter, these
5:41 am
are things that really, really hurt, especially the low end of the income spectrum, right? these are things you cannot do without. the shelter part of the inflation story is going to be a big one going forward. and in the months ahead here. bottom line, still persistent, still high, but showing signs of cooling here for the first time in a long time, john. >> the cooling particularly in energy, right? which is a little bit paradoxal. >> the regard high gas prices overnight, $4.40 a gallon, about a buck and a half higher than that on the west coast, those are not captured here in these numbers yet. that's something to think about looking forward. we also have another fly in the ointment here, that is new covid lockdowns in china. this zero covid strategy in china. a lot of folks are telling me they're worried about what that's going to mean for the supply chain months ahead, meaning you still have the supply chain problem feeding into inflation going into the summer. >> if you're holding your breath
5:42 am
for a peak, maybe we have seen it. christine romans, thank you very much. i want to bring in john harwood now. this is going to be -- granted this is something easing slowly, but good news for the white house. >> good news that we're at a peak. it is not as low as they wanted. we were hoping for the administration was hoping for the country, the economy was hoping for a lower number. the idea that even if it takes a while for it to start declining, that a peak has taken place, that is positive. and i think generally speaking economists expect inflation to be declining over the course of the next several months. the question is how far does it fall? does it get down to 3%, which would be a positive sign for the economy, or does it go slower than that? that's what we don't know yet. >> psychologically it is important to see that light at the end of the tunnel, how far off is it, though? we'll see. john harwood, thank you very much. we have more on this ahead. next, we're going to be joined by paris hilton, as she continues her push for stronger child abuse laws.

5:47 am
child abuse act this comes two years after hilton shared her special story of abuse. >> the last school i went to was -- that was the first of the worst. there is no getting out of there. you're sitting on a chair, staring at a wall, all day long, getting yelled at or hit. i felt like a lot of the people who worked there got off on torturing children and seeing them naked. >> following paris hilton's accusations, the school released a statement saying provo canyon school was sold by its previous ownership in august 2000, we therefore cannot comment on the operations or student experience prior to that time. with us now is media personality and businesswoman paris hilton to talk about this issue.
5:48 am
we should mention there were so many other allegations made about that school under its prior ownership as well. i'm hoping you can tell us about this bill that you're working on. what do you want people to know about it? >> i want people to know that there is severe abuse happening at these schools. there is 150,000 youth that are sent to these places, and they're being physically, verb ally, emotionally and sexually abused and there needs to be a stop to this. i'm here to educate lawmakers and senators on this very serious human rights issue. >> because when those kids are in a facility like this, what kind of avenues do they have if they have a complaint about how they're being treated? >> there's no possible way. they're cut off from the outside world. they're not allowed to tell anyone if they tried to even say it with their families on the
5:49 am
phone, it happened to myself as well. they will immediately hang up the phone, you'll be punished and you'll have your phone privileges taken away. so they do scare tactics. >> and you saw physical abuse and you experienced that, is that right? >> yes. on a daily basis. >> so you've been advocating for this courageously, sharing this experience, this awful experience that you had in the hope that other people won't have to go through this. you have spoken in this documentary about how you were woken up in the middle of the night when you were 16, two transporters taking you to this residential treatment center that your parents wanted you to go to. you spoke of being in solitary confinement. how did that experience impact your life and also your parents' lives considering what they expected was going to happen there? >> my parents had no idea. they thought they were sending me to a normal boarding school,
5:50 am
that these places have such deceptive marketing and the people who work at these places lie to the families, and what i experienced at these places i will never forget and has affected me and will affect me for the rest of my life. that's why i'm fighting for change, so no child ever has to suffer in the name of treatment. >> you know, paris, i was reading about your story, and you have come forward and i imagine it is difficult to tell. but it is amazing that you're telling it. your story actually made me think about britney spears, obviously very different circumstances, but i was thinking back to the '90s and the 2000s, and how as a society we consumed your stories, right. and so many people made so much money off you guys and you both suffered and you're now telling the world about this abuse that you say that you've endured. this sort of imprisonment that you weren't able to get out of. do you see any similarities?
5:51 am
>> definitely. you know, i went through that as a teenager and she's had to experience it as an adult. and we both are so strong with what we went through, and i'm so proud of both of us for using our voices to stick up for others who don't have a voice. and i'm so proude in washington, d.c. we have hundreds of survivors that have flown out and i'm just -- we really just need people to understand what is happening in these places. >> well, you're really elevating this issue and we're going to keep following this bill. paris, thank you so much for being with us. we appreciate it. >> thank you so much too. tom brady may soon be hanging up his jersey and picking up the mic. bob costas joining us on brady's multimillion dollar retirement plan. why do people who live with generalized myasthenia gravis want a new treatment option? because we want to be able to get up and get ready f for wo. because the animals need to be cared for,

5:55 am
cnn contributor bob cost as. that's good work if you can get it. >> yeah, absolutely is. what you have to keep in mind, in a fractionalized television and media world, the one thing that cuts through is nfl football. 75 of the top 100 rated programs last year, in all of television, were nfl games. so it is only within football where this is possible. if you had a hockey, baseball, basketball announcer, who was comparably as highly regarded as al michaels, joe buck from fox to espn or jim nance ortz, ther no way they to command the same amount of money because they don't generate the same type of audience and you don't have five different platforms created in this musical chairs thing, five different platforms spending more than a billion dollars a year. so, to spend this kind of money as big as it seems would almost be considering the networks'
5:56 am
investments in the nfl, as if you bought a $5,000 suit, but then wouldn't pop for the tie or the belt or the shoes. it is a small amount of money to bring someone like brady who cuts through all of it, a megacelebrity, people that don't know a screen pass from a field goal, know who tom brady is, and the key point which you mentioned is that in addition to being involved in the game broadcast, he's going to be a corporate ambassador for fox. he's going to show up with sponsors. he's going to show up with corporate types. he's one of those people that moves the needle in that respect. now, how good he'll be as an analyst is a different question. people like to watch him, they like to hear what he has to say, he's obviously an expert and has all kinds of credibility, but many of the best athletes ever across the board in sports have not turned out to be terrific broadcasters. we have to wait and see about that. >> i was going to ask you that, howard cosell wrote a book, the title is i never played the game, right?
5:57 am
tom brady is very good at playing football. but what does it take to be good in the booth? >> well, it is a knack. one thing he has going for him, though, is that even more so than others, we're told, he loves to study film. he loves to immerse himself in the minutia of football. if he carries that over, and he's willing to work even half as hard at being a great broadcaster, as he has been a great player, then he's got a shot at it. i think most people don't realize how much -- cris collinsworth of nsa bc works dug the season to stay on top of these things. we'll see how much brady wants to devote himself to that once he's done playing. for the most at least, it is not certain he's done after one more year. he'll be 45 this season, but he's defied all the previous expectations, so who knows how long he'll continue to play. might be more than just this coming season.
5:58 am
>> i was joking this contract doesn't actually kick in until 2035. at the rate that tom brady is going right now. you know, in a booth, you don't get to see your face. they're not going to get to see tom brady's face or do you think they'll change the way they cover the games? >> i think they'll be more in game booth shots than usual. you want to play on brady's celebrity and glamour, they'll probably involve him in the pregame and halftime programming more. if it turns out that he's not as good as they hope he will be in the booth, they can always move him to pregame programming where you're on camera all the time. >> but, you know, i love listening to you call baseball games. more than anything else. do you have a sense that actually the people in the booth drive ratings? can it? >> the research always showed that with the exception of john madden, maybe back in the day when monday night football was a phenomenon, howard cosell, whether they loved him or hated him, certainly drove ratings, people wanted to see him and see
5:59 am
what he might have to say, i think that with rare exception when the networks pay this kind of money and, again, it is unique to football when we talk about this megamoney, they do -- they do it to have the best possible broadcast that people are talking about the broadcast, there is no way to evaluate or objectively quantify what the buzz is around a broadcast. and maybe, certainly fox is hoping this, maybe brady is in the combination of credibility, but also glamour and across the board name recognition that he has. >> we have about 20 seconds left. there has been so much movement the last, you know, few months in terms of calling games. why? >> because of the five platforms spending billions upon billions of dollars in rights, fees and production fees, and because of the fact that the nfl is the number one property, not just in sports, but in all of entertainment. an interesting side bar here is
6:00 am
that greg olson is the number one analyst, he'll be calling games and bucs games are on fox by and large, including the nfc championship game and the -- if the bucs get that far, so greg olson is calling games while keeping the seat warm for the guy who is going to be replacing him. interesting dynamic. >> intrigue. bob costas, always a pleasure to speak with you. thank you so much. >> thank you, john. >> cnn's coverage continues right now. good wednesday morning to you. i'm jim sciutto. >> i'm erica hill. this just in, new signs inflation may have peaked. prices still at near 40-year highs, but this morning the bureau of labor statistics says inflation actually fell to 8.3%. that's a decline of .2 points from last month. it is also the first decrease we have seen in nine months. big question, of course, is what does it mean for you? we're going to break those numbers down for you
