5:02 pm
video that mcafee himself made the. some call him the man genius. you judge for yourself. bernard: 1 made you do that? >> the press said they planned number of labels on me and seem to be sticking. i surrounded myself with guns, surrounded myself with women. are was paranoid. apparel and rand you to three or four seconds on was an example, i did basalts. on the desk i had two boxes labeled with bath salts and was supporting them with my full face toward the end. i enjoy making fun of myself as much as anything. neil: you are not just anybody. before we get stuff that happened in the last year or so let's start about what you started, mcafee the anti virus
5:03 pm
power house, something you found it and created and now you have put out a video that instructs people how to remove the program. why did you do that? >> one of the things that became very apparent during the news blitz in december, january and february was all internet stories that had comments allowed, over half of the comments said i wish they would hang this man for making such terrible software. i have not had anything to do with the company in 15 years, had nothing to do with the quality of the software so i thought okay, let me tell you guys, nothing to do with it and if you don't like it here is how to and install it. neil: do you not like mcafee software today? >> i do not use any anti virus software, no one's. i practice safe computing.
5:04 pm
neil: a lot of people have called you the iron man character on which that elaborate business tie in playboy if you will, is that true? >> they certainly called me that. they called me the tony stor of the cyberworld. whether that is true or not i am who i am. i live my sale of -- i do what i want to do. neil: when it comes to the money issue at the risk of pushing this to extremes, tony loses a fortune, gets it back, presumably the talk was you lost a fortune, got a lot of it back coming back, movies that could be featuring you making you the subject. seems like a guy who is very much back in the game. >> i don't think i left the
5:05 pm
game. my game has changed. it is no secret as a young man i was making money from selling drugs in mexico. thank god i am not doing that anymore. i made a fortune, lost a fortune more times than i can care of. money is easy to make. it is the simplest thing in the world. there's a lot of money floating around. keeping get is the problem. melissa: that is not even half of it. neel spoke to him about ed snowden on what advice mcafee could offer. listen to this. neil: sounds like what he did was something good, whether his intentions were noble is still to be decided. is that about right? >> here is what i feel. any disclosure of any information is good. why should we be kept in the dark on anything? we are all adults here. i want to know what is happening in my world otherwise i am in the dark and bumping into things and so are you and so are we all. to that extent i am behind the
5:06 pm
guy. let's find out what the world is all about, what is our government doing? don't you want to know? i do. to that extent i back him fully. i back is balls if i can say that on fox. i am behind his courage. he has the courage to actually do something, knowing its risks and now he is on the run. having been on the run many times in my life, when i was in mexico, certainly the last time in police, i know how difficult and frightening that can be. if he were here i could give him some very good advice. neil: what would you tell him? >> i would tell him to stay in hong kong. the back alleys of hong kong are notorious for being susceptible. you can disappear into the back alleys of hong kong, become one of the masses. the chinese government has no interest in tracking him down. neither will they cooperate with
5:07 pm
an american agency. neil: you don't think the chinese would have interest in what he knows? >> they would, but unlike the russians i don't think the chinese would be very harsh on him. maybe they would detain him for a while but the chinese are what is the word? they make good hosts. if you are a guest in their country you can live fairly well and i am not to sing america. i'm not trying to give them an illegal advice. had it been the i would have stayed in hong kong. neil: he is not trying to give ed snowden legal advice but here's a tutorial how to alleviate the authorities next time. good stuff. neil cavuto wouldn't let him go without addressing the future murder scandal he was caught up in in billy's. that is up next. coming up a few fantastic ideas with charlie gasparino. more money right after this. ♪

5:34 pm
have you had pushed back from people who don't agree with your point of view? they want moms to be high when taking care of their kids and we don't want this image on tv and in movies and you are actively being paid and working hard to get this image into movies? you must get a lot of angry mail or i don't know. >> believe it or not actually cannabis approval ratings are at all-time high. check cnn or even fox business you will see when people see cannabis, here is medicated chocolate or products with cannabis it is not the old school dirty bonds and joints with homeless people in the alleyway. today's modern canada's consumer are women like me who work in the corporate world and our highly educated and what happens is people coming out of the closet and a lifestyle choice so when they do television i get thousands of e-mails from within and men that's a thank you so

5:41 pm
melissa: as you know we have conversations on monday to get realistic engage on what we read here in the news and the new study was released about who actually make the financial decisions between married couples. we jumped right into the fray with our favorite guests,
5:42 pm
charles payne, kenny, watch and learn. what i love about this is for example when men were asked are you the primary financial decisionsmaker 69% of them said yes but only 13% of them, thousands agreed with them. there's a little bit of a disconnect there. we see time and again in this study they asked you in charge of making the decisions, person said yes and their spouse said i don't think so. what do you think of that? >> my wife and i make every decision 50/50. >> come john! >> my name is not tony, it is ward cleaver. we are the perfect american family. these statistics that have come out of this polk not shock me at all. there's the natural oppositional relationship between spouses. when the husband thinks something the white think the opposite and when the white thing something doesn't think the opposite. why should it be any different
5:43 pm
but we know the makes the big decisions in the house and it is definitely the women. melissa: who makes his decision? >> my husband was like it is a cool topic. you may call the financial decisions. on what planet? i don't make any of the decisions. no i don't. melissa: no one is in charge. absolutely no one is driving the ship. i am worried for your finances. i you in charge? charles: i think a good wife will somehow figure out a way to have a husband think he is in charge when she is really in charge which is why you have the difference in that. i don't know how they'd do it but the white and kids are typically in charge but you could switch to a little bit and say who makes the financial decisions and to make the spending decisions. when it comes to spending money my wife is in charge. melissa: she does the purchases and you are planning for the future? is that what you are saying?
5:44 pm
charles: i feel like i am planning for the future. i feel like i am planning for the future but she -- she has a direct relationship with ups and fedex. everytime i come home i trip over a box. occasionally -- melissa: i hear the credit card going right now. >> it looks a little bit like ups delivery. charles: what percentage is your husband's? >> i acquire every one. if it wasn't for me everyone in my house would be walking around naked. i am of the one constantly, who has a swimsuit for this? if i wasn't out purchasing people would have nothing, we wouldn't have any food. >> that is what my wife says, she makes the decisions because she is thinking of everybody equally.
5:45 pm
i am thinking about myself and. men have one major thing they should worry about and that is what i worry about. feed the beast, bring home the money. but your wife -- >> wait a second. >> it is lifestyle. >> bring home the bacon. charles: lucky he is not in the studio. >> i think so. what do you think about that? >> my mom was the primary breadwinner. i am one of the primary breadwinners in my family. webinar 54% of the work force. >> i am not saying you are not. in those households it is fantastic. my wife went back to work and that is gray. i'm not saying women should work. i am saying the men who worry about their financial role i would focus more on delivering the goods. >> let's take it one step
5:46 pm
further. what does it mean? you are always giving investment advice and trying to help people grow their nest egg larger. if people like tony view the women as the spenders and the men which is kind of what you said too that is not necessarily good for growing your nest egg into the future. maybe we need to be on the same page. charles: we should be on the same page. i have a friend, an older guy, when he got married he said at the wedding they collected money from every one. like a new york kind of thing. the guy in the look and said hand it over, stupid. he realized he didn't get married, he got a supervisor. my point is someone has to be in charge no matter who it is and i do think the role has shifted the lot over the last couple decades. melissa: what about a family meeting to make sure you are on
5:47 pm
the same page? charles: can't get the white and kids together. when they get something together they are unstoppable. >> i don't know if we fix the problem but thank you to all three of you. you are in trouble. melissa: tony went home with flowers that night. coming up on monday, when you have dogs on the set things are about to go haywire. wait until you see what happens when we try to do a focus group on dog tv. twitter dared me to explore stuart varney's that and i answered. want to know what stuart varney looks like when he has no idea what is happening around him? keep watching. you can never have too much money. this is the quicksilver cash back card from capital one. it's not the "fumbling around with rotating categories" card. it's not the etting blindsided by limits" card.
5:48 pm
it's the no-game-playing, no-earning-limit-having, deep-bomb-throwing, give-me-the-ball-and-i'll-take- it-to-the-house, cash back card. this is the quicksilver cash card from capital one. unlimited 1.5% cash back on every purchase, everywhere, every single day. so let me ask you... at's in your wallet? just by talking to a helmet. it grabbed the patient's record before we even picked himp. it found out the doct we needed was at st. anne's. wiggle your toes. [ driver ] and it got his okay on treatment from miles away. it even pulled strings with the stoplights. my ambulance talks with smoke alarms and pilots and adiums. but, of course, 's a good listener too.

is you haven't heard one company is hauling in 2014 he said. dog tv is a new channel designed for man's best friend. the channel isn't free so can the company fetch the fees it needs from pet owners? we brought some special guests to help us take a look. we have a special focus group testing it out as we speak. aren't they cute? joining me now is dog tv founder and chief content officer ron levy. your chief content officer. how do you decide what dogs want to watch? >> that is, high. melissa: really fired up. >> that is our audience next to you. it is all based on studies. so many different studies about how dogs see, how dogs here, what dogs need and what we did is put everything together and created the right content for dogs according to what we know.

they see different colors that we do, hear differently than we do so we put it together and create the right programming for dogs. melissa: researchers say dogs when we are at work are at home sleeping so why would most people hate? pricing is $9.99 for a month, $29.99 for a year, $69.99, if the dog would be sleeping if not watching tv why would people pay for that? >> the price is for online and directv only $4.99 a month, it is much cheaper. dogs sleep a lot, most of the day and because of their hearing every ambulance passing by is very noisy for them, every door bell is noisy. we give them the right environment to relax and feel good and comfortable when they are home all day but also try to stimulate them so they feel playful during the day. the content is relaxation, stimulation, and an exposure contents which is good for their

education. melissa: dogs, taking the shot of them, they have not bothered to look at dog tv the entire time they are here but they're more fascinated with what is going on in the studio. what is the difference for dogs between watching on tv and if you just left the regular tv on? >> so many people leave the tv on without dog tv on because it is a recommendation by the humane society. leave your tv on, it is better for them but a lot of animal channels or different channels, even this great channel wasn't designed for dogs. there are scary animals, commercial breaks, loud talking, not for a dog. what we did is create everything, every frame on it and every sound is for dogs and the way they see the world is different than us. melissa: there are not adds. the entire way you will support this is not through advertising but subscription? do you think you can get enough people and how is it going so
5:54 pm
far? >> we are in a preview so you can get it for free. it will be $4.99, only subscription, the platooning and we hope for the best. we will have to wait and see. melissa: you design the content. how often can you rerun stuff? do you have to keep it fresh or can you have the same hour play on a loop? how do they know it is a rerun? >> great question based on science. there is research about the memory of a dog and if the dog saw something more than two or three times you start to recognize he already saw that so we try to be fresh and new, new programming leach segment has three times a month. melissa: that is a lot of content. thank you so much. that is a lot of content. may sound crazy to some of you watching. i would buy for my dogs to watch
