tv   Erin Burnett Out Front  CNN  October 7, 2011 7:00pm-8:00pm EDT

7:00 pm
politician's requirements. you need to be an actor but a few other things as well. >> jeffrey right, thank you for your tom. >> thank you, john. thank you for having me. >> if you listing closely, there are a couple of news reports in there. if you listen closely to "the ides of march." george clooney asked me to have a small part. it was a treat. >> have a great weekend, john. tonight, we will take you to the front lines in dubai at the world's largest camel ranch. we don't think you will be able to resist this story. italy's economy is not doing well, that's an understatement. sylvia berlusconi has other things on his mind. hundreds of thousands of people have signed a petition against bank of america. we talked to the woman who started it. let's go out front. -- captions by vitac --
7:01 pm
hello. i'm erin burnett in "out front." over 200,000 people signed a petition against bank of america's new debit card fee, $5. we've been saying it shows how tone deaf they are at bad time. the person that led the petition is 22-year-old molly. she's here and we appreciate you coming in, molly. >> thanks. i appreciate it. >> you and i were talking before. you said you set up this petition a week ago? >> one week ago. >> what made you decide to do it? what made you decide i've had enough? >> i'm 22 years old and working two part-time jobs. i don't have another $60 a year to give to bank of america. i knew thousands of measures feel the same way. >> basically, they're trying to get you to pay $5 a month. you are just out of college and working two jobs a month. you don't have a huge bank
7:02 pm
account. >> no. >> you did something a lot of people don't do, that is break up with their bank. i don't know many people that love their bank. tell me how you did it? >> yesterday, i took the signature, at 195,000. took all of them from, took them to the bank i usually go to, downtown d.c. presented it to them. i said, here you go. 195,000 signatures. didn't really know what to do with them. i said i want to close my account and cut up my credit card and debit card. i'm free. >> have you decided where you want to go? >> i think i will probably go to a credit union. still want to think about it. >> the bank of america hasn't responded to you and not backing down on their feeing ingfees. i wanted to ask you because you took time to put this petition together, what do you think bank of america could do to get
7:03 pm
someone like you back to make you feel like they're not taking advantage of you. >> i don't think bank of america could get me back now. it's been a week since the petition and they haven't responded to that. i don't respect that. i won't go back with a bank that won't acknowledge hundreds of thousands of upset customers. >> molly, thank you so much. wee appreciate you coming up and taking the time and telling us all about it. your petition is at to give everyone the exact number of how many people you have. 204,931 people signed on to your petition. a way to take charge and make a difference. >> thank you so much? thank you, molly. the bottom line on these fees the reason the banks say they're doing it new rules took effect a week ago which cap how much they can charge using a debit or credit card. they're upping fees on checking accounts to get back to even and way beyond. that's the problem.
7:04 pm
we went through the numbers and a lot analysts are crunching. only 45% of non-interest checking accounts are 43 now compared to 76% two years ago. banks have been upping fees long before the new regulations they blame now. average atm fees are at a record and have risen each of the past seven years. now, to bank of america. as we told you this week, the investment firm, credit suisse said if bank of america did as they did to molly, it would make more than it did before the regulations. it doesn't count the checking fees they're testing for $9 of some accounts soon. bank of america sent us a statement, everything we do with our customers is to be clear and to give them a choice. you can see the full statement on our website and facebook page as well. our chief business correspondent, ali velshi is with us.
7:05 pm
lee, let me start with you. can you explain why this is happening now? part of, they're blaming the regulation. >> they are. that's true. one of the things the recent round of regulation did was minimize the fee banks can charge to retailers. if you're a shop cooper, you get charged for processing a credit card transaction. they're cutting that in half. what b of a is say, they have to make it up somewhere. this is where they make it up, a very big number, very round, very obvious. the thing about bank fee, usually, they're hidden and you can't find them so easily. this is very obvious. debit cards are pretty cheap for banks to process, a lot cheaper than checks used to be in the old days. >> amazing how much cheerp they are. before the regulation, as lee was saying, it goes to the retailers and some to the consumer, now, they're disclosing how much they're charging. you look at the math, looks like
7:06 pm
they're making more now than they did before. >> sure. as ryan monahan, the ceo of bank of america said they have a right to make a profit. they also make those profits when they're good to their customers. i think what molly is doing is fantastic. we're at quite an age where they put out a statement saying they're all about transparency and should have always been about transparency. the coast of that transaction is less than a third of the reduced fee they're actually getting. molly's right. you said 45% of accounts don't have fees. there are fees out there, she's going a credit union. that's what america should do, between this petition, a great idea and voting with their wallet, let me go somewhere there still aren't fees. >> that's one of the amazing things molly did, ali mentioned. most people don't like their bank just like they don't like their airline but they don't go
7:07 pm
breaking up with their bank. a very sticky relationship. a couple weeks ago, netflix raised prices and caused a firestorm, 600,000 customers walked away. >> including me. >> and reed hastings the ceo apologized. that's a great example of consumers walking away. they don't do that with their banks. one of the reason is banks have put their tentacles in every aspect of our lives. you may have a mortgage with the same bank and link to different accounts. >> automatic pay. >> it's a lot harder. this will be interesting. if there has ever been a fee that will make people walk away, this is it. it will be interesting to see if it has any impact. >> ali, what do you think, $5 debit fee is one thing. there are some that sound more like gouging, $5 atm fee, $9 check in fees and these are on
7:08 pm
the low balance people who can least afford it. >> one thing that has happened is there are non-bank alternati alternatives, low fee alternatives out there. people do have those choice, just not convenient. we are used to having a bank machine and taking out the amount of cash we have to spend. i think the number of people is very telling. a lot of frustration out there. i think bank of america needs a little bit more response than they've given already. >> we called them and they gave that statement but would give us no one, not even a spokesperson to talk about this and seems like they should. thanks, molly and ali still hanging around out there. >> have her go downtown to those folks who occupy wall street and get them to sign it. she's actually making a difference they could get behind. maybe the two of them together
7:09 pm
could maybe somebody change something. >> she is. thank you. a pastor talking about rick perry and called mormonism a cult. prime minister sylvia berlusconi suggests a seriously inappropriate name for his party. we will not disappoint you with this. we will introduce you why on this show, we will never resist camel's. nancial need. and then, in one blinding blink of an eye, their tree had given its last. but with their raymond james financial advisor, they had prepared for even the unthinkable. and they danced. see what a raymond james advisor can do for you.
7:10 pm
7:11 pm
7:12 pm
the number tonight, 226,000. that's how many one liter glasses revelers were caught trying to take home at this year's octoberfest in munich, germany. way up from 130,000 they tried to take home last year. according to the lost items desk j.c. 390 cell phones, 1300 items of clothing, 1,000 id cards, 370 eyeglasses, an electric wheelchair. what? and alive 8 centimeter long grasshopper and the desk invested one pair of dentures, down from previous years.
7:13 pm
explosive comments today from the evangelical pastor who introduced rick perry at the values voter summit in washington d.c. i don't want to just tell you about it. dr. robert jeffers, pastor of the first baptist church of college. >> you said in pretty strong language what you think of mormonism, you described it as a cult, if republicans vote for mitt romney, they're giving some credibility to a cult. do you stand by that comment? >> absolutely. that's not a fanatical comment. that's been the historical stance for christianity, it has officially labeled mormonism as a result. >> governor perry's campaign issued a response after that saying the governor does not believe mormonism is a cult and didn't pick the person that introduced him. joined by experienced hands.
7:14 pm
cnn contributor join us from washington, republican strategist, mary madelyn. pleasure to have you with us. how does something like this still happen? >> welcome. we love this show. thank you for coming to us? thrilled to be here and thrilled to have you on. >> we love it. how does it happen? what would be an important event is if rick perry or even tony perkins colluded or agreed with that sentiment they clearly do not. evangelicals like all americans, are showing in polls they have the same concerns, the same priorities, jobs in the economy. we had another horrific jobs number, 32 months of ungrowth, no growth and that's what they will be voting on. a squirmish but not dispositive in the primary for the perry campaign. >> paul, would you agree with
7:15 pm
mary when you get to primary is in the south, a non-issue? >> no. i quick she were right but i think she's putting hope over reality. there's a prejudice in this country. the only one we saw go up. mitt romney's father ran for president in 1968 and his mormon faith was never even raised as an issue. tragically in america, it's the one declared prejudice that some people seem more comfortable giving voice to. it's lamentable, sad. it is not rick perry's fault. i don't believe he put this pastor up to it and yet perry is missing an opportunity. when i worked for bill clinton, he was running against mary's boss, and riots in los angeles, she said black people kill each
7:16 pm
other all the time, maybe we should have a week they kill white people. bill clinton went there and called her out and said it's wrong. rick perry needs to show that kind of strength. it's essential when you see prejudice in your own movement to call it out and say it's wrong. i'm not saying rick perry is a prejudiced man. i am saying he's a weak leader and not showing the kind of strength he needs to show. he should label this prejudice, wrong. >> he came out against it but do you think he should have used stronger words to distance himself against it. >> mary, you probably know this about paul but would like nothing more than for us to have a distracting conversation. >> rick peridots not think it is and it was an issue for rom 9 the last go around, there is no issue greater for any american republican or independent than jobs in the economy. if you think there is no prejudice against any religion. he well knows because we share a
7:17 pm
faith. catholics are lamented in many quarters. it's a sideshow. i disagree tactically and strategically perry needs to do any more than what he did. he needs to stay on his message. get back to his message, i'm a good jobs creator, i'm a leader. >> let me move to the next person i haven't mentioned doing so well. the "washington post" dubbed the herminator, poll after poll, cbs had him tied with mitt romney nationally. you look at new hampshire, the poll released in the last hour has cain in second place, still well behind romney but up 10 points from the last poll. mary, is cain the real deal? >> yes, he is, for a number of reasons. people, the more they hear the 9-9-9 economic plan, they like the specificity, the philosophy that undergirds it, they like his happy warrior posture. he is real.
7:18 pm
i know paul will agree with us. is there no worse entry in a race than front-runner. it's better to be the outlier who shows that ties and now in some polls is leading. that's the preferred position. when you come in as front-runner, you're in the pinata position. a couple of weeks of pummelling at that position, i don't know anybody that hasn't gone down a couple notches. i think in the next debate, mr. cain, who's been a good candidate and good articulator of the conservative message will be in the pinata position. >> that's not always a good place to be, we all know at times. let me ask you from the president's perspective, at this point, who is he hoping is his adversary when push comes to shove, of the three front runners. i guess it could be someone else, who's the guy he wants to run against? >> i can't speak for him, of course, i don't advise him. i am uneconomic for me, humbled on this question. the carter white house, famously apparently and wolf blitzer
7:19 pm
confirmed this, he covered them, they sat around and said, we want reagan. by golly, they got reagan, didn't they? it's not my natural profile here but i'm very humble about this. with the economy in the dumps and the republicans trying to hurt the economy to hurt themselves politically, anybody who runs against the president will give him a very tough race. i don't think democrats should sit around hoping it's mr. cain or congresswoman bachmann or mr. perry or mitt romney. i can't pick. to me, all of them essentially want to end medicare and privatize and abolish social security, none are my cup of tea. i don't want to pick a favorite. >> it was fun to have you both together. i like getting a share of the sparks. have a great weekend. >> you, too, erin. >> say for the first time we heard conrad murray's voice. the prosecution played an audiotape of the first police interview with michael jackson's doctor where the doctor spoke of jackson's propofol use.
7:20 pm
>> you administered it more than 10 times? >> yes. >> more than 20 times? >> 30 days a month, roughly everyday. >> a daily -- >> daily, with the exception of three days leading up to his death. >> ted rowlands is outside the courted. what did you take away from hearing the tape? >> erin, it was riveting and everybody was listening intently here. basically, murray takes you through what was going through his mind and all the medications he gave jackson. what you take away from it, no mention of the telephone calls to his girlfriends and office and off by an hour on the timeline, you look at the phone records, it could be trouble for him and his defense because it doesn't add up, the timing and no mention in his side of the story of getting on the telephone at all. >> his defense attorneys are trying to prove it was another
7:21 pm
sedative responsible for michael jackson's death, note propofol. it seems to debunk that, doesn't it? >> well, here's what -- not necessarily. what we heard today goes along with that. he gave him lorazepam. that's the new drug the defense wants jurors to think about, lorazepam. they have done a good job in cross on the state's expert and will have their own expert they'll bring on next week likely and be able to make or break their case. >> it does seem when you have this audiotape happening from a few days ago, things are moving pretty quickly. when do you think the defense will start? >> absolutely. things are moving very quickly. we expect the prosecution to wrap up early sometime next week, no court on monday and we expect the defense to get the case and they always claim to go a week or two and tip publiypics
7:22 pm
shrunk down to one three days and a chance it goes to them the end of the week. an immigration law that invites discrimination. and the fbi joins the search for a missing baby in kansas city. and cilia berlusconi. slurs.
7:23 pm
for fastidious librarian emily skinner, each day was fueled by thorough preparation for events to come. well somewhere along the way, emily went right on living. but you see, with the help of her raymond james financial advisor, she had planned for every eventuality. ...which meant she continued to have the means to live on... ...even at the ripe old age of 187. life well planned. see what a raymond james advisor can do for you. it's delicious. so now we've turned her toffee into a business. my goal was to take an idea and make it happen. i'm janet long
7:24 pm
and i formed my toffee company through legalzoom. i never really thought i would make money doing what i love. [ shapiro ] we created legalzoom to help people start their business and launch their dreams. go to today and make your business dream a reality. at we put the law on your side.
7:25 pm
7:26 pm
we cover a lot of serious stories on this show. this is one seriously. people have called for the resignation of sylvia berlusconi. his political party nicknamed "go italy" is suffering record low popularity. this week, moody's actually down graded the country's debt adding to the economic pain. that is not the reason the story makes us say seriously. that is because of what berlusconi said yesterday. during a meeting with his party deputies, berlusconi joked because of his party's terrible numbers and own reputation for, shall we say, carousing, they should name of their party of
7:27 pm
"go italy" to something else. the name is much too inappropriate for me to reiterate on a family channel much less any other channel. reuters said it was a quote a vulgar slang name for female genitalia and reuters took it a step further and said, also used to describe an attractive woman. the telegraph said the meaning of the word can range from babe to crumpet, to the female genitalia. sylvia berlusconi says the demands for his resignation are absurd and he's so unphased he's in russia to celebrate the 59th birthday -- it couldn't be more perfect for this segment. it is the shirtless vladimir putin's birthday. he turns 59. seriously. 10 years since the war began
7:28 pm
in afghanistan, nearly 100,000 troops are still deployed. 1700 have lost their lives. we will talk about the real new weapon in the american war on terror. missouri police captain steve young updates us on the case of a missing baby in kansas city that has captured the nation's attention. and a story we cannot resist, about camel's.

7:32 pm
we start the second half of our show with stories we care about, focus on our own reporting. we made the call and found the "out front" five. number 1, a dallas pastor that introduced rick perry at the values summit today told reporters a vote for mitt romney will lend credibility to a cult. a romney supporter and fellow mormon came out front. he told us there are 14 million mormons that would beg to differ with the pastor's analysis. i would like to meet the pastor, share a soda with him and talk about the mormon church. i am glad to see governor perry distance himself from his comments. mitt romney has not yet responded to his comments. number two, justice department filing an emergency motion to block alabama's tough new immigration law. the law includes mandatory check on the immigration status of school kids. this has caused thousands of hispanic children to be pulled out of school, migrant workers have disappeared from local
7:33 pm
farms. alabama governor, robert bentley, says he is not backing down in response from a call from "out front" today and said the doj is no surprise and he remains committed to seeing the law fully implemented. iowa, moving up its caucus. traditional votes have been cast out and moving to january 3rd. this has been a race among the states. florida moved its primary to january 31st. south carolina, 21st, nevada, caucus on the 14th. but what all eyes are on now, new hampshire, whether they will stay the first primary state. there's the news from "out front" tonight. consumer borrowing big news, falling by $1.5 billion in august. economists expect it to rise. we want to find out what happened, whether this was good news. said not really, probably an anomaly.
7:34 pm
consumer sentiment, it was a tough august, you think about the debt ceiling debate. people might have spent less. keep in mind regular american citizens have tightened their belts a lot over the past few years. consumer credit and debt is off its 2008 high by more than $136 billion. americans are getting their financial house in order. not so our government. it has been 63 days since the u.s. lost its top credit rating. what are we doing to get it back? today marks 10 years since the war began in afghanistan. nearly 100,000 troops are still there, 1700 have lost their lives. now, the plan is to bring 30,000 of those soldiers home next summer. while we may be decreasing our boots on the ground, the military is boosting its presence in the air. we're talking about the american drone program. since 2001, drones have killed more than 2,000 militants in the war against terror and civilians as well, which is part of the story here, too. former cia and dhs fishl, chad
7:35 pm
sweet, is out front tonight to talk about america's weapon of choice. tell me how important are our drones? i know you spent a lot of time working with them at the cia and dhs? >> this is probably the single most effective tool for 21st century counter-terrorism. as we've seen, you just mentioned a moment ago, over 2,000 militants taken off the battlefield since 2006. what makes it incredibly effective is when you compare it to historical military combat, the extremely low level of civilian casualties. that being said, it's something that has to be used surgically and thoughtfully. this kinetic tool, which is extremely effective, at the end of the day, will only be a holding pattern until we can win the battle of hearts and minds. >> let me ask you, quick follow up on that. and i was talking to men who
7:36 pm
were talking about men killed in drone attacks. can we get them better so we don't have such collateral damage. as we know, drones have been successful taking out some of the top al qaeda operatives and most recently in yemen. >> i think in terms of precision, it's hard to imagine them being more precise than they are at some level, we have to recognize war by definition is a dirty business. i think your fundamental question is right, which is that we can't rely on this alone. this is one tool in the tool kit, at thoroughbred of the day, you talk to the former head of the special operations come manned, eric olson, admiral olson, who just left will tell you this type of kinetic force is used as holding pattern, just like in the fight against communism, we have to win the war of hearts and minds. >> we have about 7,000, correct me if i am wrong, of drone, the predator drones that fly lower and one responsible for one
7:37 pm
killing and another 7,000 drones. what are those 7,000 drones doing everyday? >> a combination of spying and striking. on the spy side, they're one of the most effective isr intelligence surveillance and reconnaissance tools that we've had. we can deploy these over areas for long periods of time. they don't require putting a human being at risk. they can stay overhead for long periods and they're very quiet. dhs will use them as well in the homeland. the human smugglers trying to get across the border don't hear them and they can operate at night with infrared vision. they're extremely effective at striking as well as surveillance. >> a lot cheaper. $40 million versus an aircraft at $133 million, a lot cheaper given the cuts we have in defense. quickly, before we go. i want to ask you this. drones, could they be used without our knowledge in the
7:38 pm
u.s. to spy on people and take out a terrorist that might be in the u.s.? >> they could, but let's bear in mind right now the faa does not allow uavs in conventional airspace and can only operate in limited military and at the border. however, we already have surveillance platforms in the forms of helicopters and other low level aircraft. i think the fundamental problem you raised is not something people should feel is unique to uavs and as a country of due process and civil liberties, we have a good system in place to protect those. >> chad, thanks very much. look forward to having you on soon. >> thank you. now a look to anderson cooper up for "ac 360" sorry. i can't even talk. >> an influential evangelical leader and mega church pastor, robert jeffers taking shots and saying mormon is a cult and endorsing rick perry. he says the reverend governs by
7:39 pm
unbiblical principles. we'll watch him. lawmakers worried crowds on wall street will soon turn violent. many of those same people praised the tea party for the same tactics. >> looking forward to it. still out front, missouri police captain steve young comes on out front in the case of the missing baby in kansas and we talk to cherree blair about the program she launched to help women, oh, yeah, and the camel's. ay was fuh preparation for events to come. well somewhere along the way, emily went right on living. but you see, with the help of her raymond james financial advisor, she had planned for every eventuality. ...which meant she continued to have the means to live on... ...even at the ripe old age of 187. life well planned. see what a raymond james advisor can do for you.

we do this at the same time every night, our outer circle we reach out to sources around the world. first to libya, the u.s. has beefed up its hunt for weapons that have gone missing since the battle for libya began and the fear is they will fall into the hands of terrorists. and a fresh attack on sirte. nic robertson is there tonight. they say they're close to taking the city, is it true? >> reporter: it does seem time is running out for the gadhafi loyalists. the field commanders say they're better coordinated, more firepower and more men coming in from the east and west of sirte but do say some of the gadhafi
7:44 pm
loyalists control the tops of some buildings and often means the rebel forces have to pull back by the end of the day and say they control 50% of the city and have gadhafi loyalists more cornered, time definitely running out. how long, not clear. >> thank you. now to syria, forces have fired on anti-government demonstrators. in beirut tonight. >> erin, the activists have developed and entire network to organize these demonstrations. they happen on the neighborhood level and sometimes expand to the city level as well. they coordinate amongst themselves. the theory was the syrian national council represents us, a reference to the newly formed opposition council. we also saw demonstrators expressing anger towards russia and china, the two countries that vetoed the resolution after it is believed both those countries are culpable as the
7:45 pm
syria regime for bloodshed inside that embattered nation. >> thanks. now to london, moody's, the credit agency downgraded 12 banks today. how weak are the banks? >> erin, moody's actually said this down grade isn't because british banks are in a weaker financial position, actually because moody's thinks those banks are less likely now to be bailed out by the british government if they get into trouble. they're probably right about that. the british finance minister, george osborne has been quick to point out british banks are in a stronger position than european rivals because those rivals have much more exposure to greek debt. >> thanks. the search for a missing missouri baby is ramping up. it's been four days since the baby's father, jeremy irwin, said he came home after the overnight shift to an unlocked front door and open window and
7:46 pm
discovery his 10-month-old daughter was gone. his wife at the time was asleep. police say the case looks like an abduction but don't have any suspects. we sent our own ed lavandera to kansas city. we're looking at the fbi combing a landfill in kansas. what can you tell us about the search? >> reporter: this fbi team spend much of the day at a landfill, not too far from kansas city. we're told that search didn't turn up any kind of evidence or clues that might help them in the search for the missing baby girl, 10-month-old lisa irwin. the home is the one you see behind me. authorities say it was the window on the edge of the house there the mother of the baby had said or they had found opened and believed that might be a point of entry. as you mentioned, still no evidence or no indication perhaps any had broken into this home. what makes this all the more interesting is that kansas city police yesterday saying that the parents just abruptly refused to
7:47 pm
continue talking i with investigators as they continued to ask them about this case. however, the parents of 10-month-old lisa went on the morning shows and said they're still wanting to talk to authorities. we're told in kansas city despite having said that this morning, they have not spoken with authorities all day today. >> ed, thank you very much. we'll find out more about that now. initially, the police said the family was working with them to help find lisa, the baby. in a statement last night, the police said all cooperation stopped. listen to what lisa's parents told matt lauer today. >> we tell everybody that we're -- you know, we're still cooperating, we're still talking to the police. we're doing everything we can to try to find lisa and bring her back home. >> our number one focus is her. >> i want to bring in kansas
7:48 pm
city missouri police captain, steve young, in charge of the investigation since it started. you just heard lisa's parents there speaking to matt lauer. are they cooperating or not? have you talked to them today? >> reporter: it's been a little while since i had an update and the last conversation i had, they're not talking to the parents. >> and still there are no suspects? >> reporter: we don't have any suspects at this time. >> let me ask you about the 10-month-old baby tragically missing and two older children at home at the time the baby disappeared. i believe they're 6 and 8. have you been able to talk to them or learn anything from them? >> i can't comment on the details of the investigation or map out everything the detectives have done. i can assure you the detectives have done everything we can think of.
7:49 pm
>> we're 5 days out at this time, a long time for a 10-month-old baby. do you think she's alive? i know you've combed every possible place you could around that home. are you still treating this as an abduction with a live child? >> we're not trying to classify it as anything. the only thing we know, this 10-month-old belongs in this house and nobody's seen her going on five days now. we're not calling it anything. we're full steam ahead and command post-oprational and have detectives chasing down everything we can find. >> in terms of the parents, when do you expect to speak with them again. this whole cooperating, not cooperating lends such a strange feel to this whole story. >> as you might imagine, our main priority, number one goal is to find this child. we absolutely believe the parents' involvement in the investigation is critical to help make that happen. our door has open, it has always been open. >> steve, thank you so much. we appreciate you taking the

she's one of the most famous women in the world, the wife of former uk prime minister tony blair, and a powerful lawyer. like another well-known woman, she graduated at the top of her law school class. she lost the job she wanted to a guy named tony, but only 16% of lawyers were women in britain at that time. she practiced law throughout her husband's prime ministership, still practices today and started a foundation to empower other women. and yes, she's got kids too. we appreciate you taking the time for you to be here. >> i'm delighted to be here. this is your inaugural week. >> it is, but i wanted to ask you about something that got attention recently. high-profile women lost their jobs in corporate america and meg whitman came back to corporate america. 10%, good or bad?
7:55 pm
>> good and bad. great that meg whitman is back, great it's increased by a third if it's gone from 2% to 3%. >> why do you think it's so hard for women to get to that top level? >> this is not a unique problem in america, it's across the world women have difficulty getting to the top, and it's for a number of reasons. one is it still is today hard for women to be taken seriously. you know, the culture still isn't totally welcoming and embracing of successful women. a successful woman is often regarded as abrasive, unnatural, then, of course, there's the whole issue of looking after your work/life balance. >> and you have focussed, obviously, what you're doing right now with google is a lot with women in very, very poor countries. poverty and economic equality
7:56 pm
are big issues. why do you focus exclusively on women, why do you get more bang for the buck that way? >> because time and time again, all the research shows that investing in women pays more dividends than investing in men. >> that's a great sound byte, by the way. >> it is, but happens to be true. if you look, the world bank did a report and says if you take your development dollars and give it to a woman, 90% of that development dollar she'll invest in her family and community. >> i had no idea, wow. before we go, google. >> google. >> why google? >> why not google? google is a fantastic platform, but the thing about google is it's very accessible, so my mentoring platform, which links women in these developing countries to have mentoring relationships with people like us in countries like america so that they can actually have a one-to-one relationship, depends on an easily accessible
7:57 pm
platform. google is free, the google tools, google chat or google plus are available to everyone for free, so we train women to use the tools, and then they can communicate with their mentors and grow their businesses, and it's proved to be a very successful formula. >> sherie blair, thank you so much for coming. >> good to be with you, and good luck with the rest of your long, successful career. >> thank you so much, i hope so. pretty interested when she said 1% of their earnings back into their families. the first week of our show has been exciting and challenging, and we hope you keep watching and help us grow with your feedback. we want to be interactive and you to be part of our team, but now on a 5 friday we want to end on a much lighter note. a lot of you feel pressure to pick healthier food. this week we've eaten more cupcakes than a staff should,
7:58 pm
but we care about healthy food, and we love camels, and both will be part of the show in the future. tonight, we introduce them together. >> loud, dusty, and very hot. the world's biggest camel ranch 1 busy at milking time. 2,500 camels file in groups of 12 for automatic milking twice a day. camels produce about half as much milk as cows, but less might be more. some people say camel milk is like a miracle drug. they say it could help cure autism, diabetes, cancer, and even aids. that's because camel stomachs are similar to human ones. that makes a big difference. >> maybe there is a magic treatment in camel milk. >> the milk is called
7:59 pm
camelicious. but it isn't easy. it was hard because every camel is a slightly different height. >> you see all the humps, one after the other. it's not one car in a row, same model, no, it's different models, all different. >> that's the females. the males, not nearly as pleasant or attractive. >> ratio of male to female, 1 to 100. >> wow. >> all that mating happens in just three months a year. baby camel girls will end up having about seven offspring. that's 14 years of milk, and where there's milk, there's chocolate. chocolate that comes at a serious price. up to $7 a bar. a price the camels, at least, think is well worth paying. they do all have pena
