3:01 am
>> do you have any weaknesses? >> i'm a little forgetful sometimes maybe. >> forgetful? okay. >>brian: job interview mistakes and how to avoid them. "fox & friends" starts -- where did i put my pen? >>gretchen: it's in my pocket. ♪ >>steve: welcome aboard. officially -- okay it's not official. unofficially summer has begun since yesterday. absolutely. memorial day. >>brian: that was the coldest memorial day i ever -- the coldest memorial day weekend. saturday was ridiculous. >>gretchen: i was away, so i didn't have great weather where i was really either but i did escape the rain and cold and i have 100 bug bites to prove it. >>brian: were you below the tropic of capricorn?
3:02 am
>>gretchen: near. >>brian: i would say now it feels a little like summer but the summer concert series is what did it for me. >>gretchen: i missed michael bolton. how was he? >>brian: he was happy to meet us but he was in denial that he was on "dancing with the stars." >>gretchen: he was here a couple of months ago? >>steve: yes, he was. >>gretchen: let's begin this morning with a developing story. passengers taken to baltimore after a cruise ship they were on went up in flames. ainsley earhardt live with the new details. >> good morning, gretchen. those passengers say it was the worst night of their lives being woken up to alarms blaring and the back of that ship on fire. take a look at the significant damage to the ship, the grandeur of the seas. the ship was heading to the bahamas when the fire started about 3 a.m. on monday. emergency alarms were going
3:03 am
off. more than 2,200 passengers ordered to gather near the lifeboats. some people said at first they thought the boat was sinking before learning of that fire. they waited on the deck for four hours. witnesses say that crews handed out the life vests and oxygen masks. so passengers, they were so fearful, some were fainting, some were physically getting sick they were so terrified. no one injured. the ship never lost power. once the fire was put out the ship was escorted to freeport bahamas for inspection. royal caribbean c.e.o. is flying in to survey the damage himself. the crews obviously canceled. all of the passengers being refunded their money and being flown back to baltimore today. this just the latest problem for the industry. there have been more than 20 fires on cruise ships in just the past 15 months. that is more than one per month. that includes an engine room fire that crippled the carnival triumph in february leaving it adrift
3:04 am
for days in the gulf of mexico. the ntsb is investigating what caused this fire to begin with. could you imagine, guys? after all of the problems we've had in the past, to be on that ship and see the fire, hand oxygen masks? you don't know what the outcome is going to be. >>brian: one minute they're making macro ni -- macaroni salad, the crews, the next minute they're putting out fires. >>gretchen: another developing story, we learned that bernie harris, former commissioner of the police department in new york will be free from prison today. he has been behind bars for three years on corruption charges. he was hailed as a hero for leading the nypd during the september 11 attacks. he was nominated for the post of homeland security secretary before his problems emerged. >> julie herman, at rutgers
3:05 am
university is staying put after reports she verbally abused players 16 years ago when she was the coach of the tennessee women's volleyball team and the president of rutgers standing by her saying she was completely vetted before being brought on board. she was heavily criticized for not firing mike rice as soon as he became aware rice was verbally abusing players of the men's basketball team at rutgers. george zimmerman back in court today and his lawyers plan to make an unusual request. they want the jurors to be allowed to visit the scene. his lawyers will request the jurors' names be kept secret. attorneys will also ask that an especially damaging audio expert be banned from testifying. that expert claims he heard trayvon martin begging for his life the night he was shot. the trial is expected to start on june 10. 50 people were trapped in two different elevators one hour apart. it happened at the casino called revel, a new
3:06 am
building in atlantic city, new jersey. in both rescues, fire fighters cabled down the elevator shaft, attached ropes to the guests and helped them climb a ladder to safety. those are your headlines. luckily, i don't think they were trapped that long. maybe a half-hour or so. >>steve: like a die hard movie or something. let's talk little bit about one of the scandals facing the administration. eric holder in the hot seat. we told you on friday that apparently eric holder, the attorney general of the united states, he himself did sign off on the rosen -- investigating james rosen and getting his personal e-mail and looking at phone detail for many of the calls that he made. but what's interesting is four days before the james rosen story hit the fan, he was asked -- eric holder was -- on capitol hill about the associated press. and it sounds like what he's talking about, it sounds like he's actually misleading the public. here's eric holder.
3:07 am
>> with regard to the potential prosecution of the press for the disclosure of material, that is not something that i've ever been involved in, heard of or would think would be a wise policy. in fact, my view is quite the opposite. >>steve: not something i've ever been involved in. that's what he said four days before the rosen thing became public. what we know, according to the department of justice people, he was involved. >>gretchen: that's unbelievable because that's just a couple of days before. now people are asking whether or not that was a truthful statement. so was the attorney general of this country not telling the truth just a couple of days before this whole case became known? are there other entities out there? are there other entities out there, reporters who were also being looked into? that is the tip of the iceberg. we don't know the answer. >>brian: we know this. people were saying how could you be probing james
3:08 am
rosen and not david sanger? they said they did look into david sanger. that came out over the weekend. they didn't take david sanger's records. they took evidently just records of high-ranking people within the administration that would have known on the federal side, which seems to have made more sense. however juan will jams talking over the -- juan will jams talking over the weekend said you can't pick on eric holder. all he did was sign it. he wasn't behind it. but this story, he does look like he did more than sign it. >>gretchen: i thought president obama's speech which had to do with the war on terror, they brought up this exact topic. wasn't it a little weird in that speech on thursday? it was weird he acknowledged this was going on and he also talked about the attorney general. i thought it was an interesting timing. on friday we found out the attorney general had a link to it. >>steve: the good news is the fact that the attorney general will be investigating what's going on.
3:09 am
so eric holder will be investigating eric holder. we'll find out. here's dr. krauthammer talking about how the obama administration actually criminalized rosen and not the actual leakers, which is not the way it's supposed to be. >> in the rosen case, for example, the administration decided in order to be able to really invade his privacy, to declare him essentially the suspect, as a criminal, and, yes, there is a tension between the need for national security and the free press, the way we have resolved that difference is to say you prosecute the person in the government who releases the information, but you don't prosecute, you don't criminalize the journalist. that's been the understanding ever since the nixon years. >>gretchen: in fact they did prosecute the leaker in the case, the guy who worked for the state department who was giving the information to james rosen. but i think what charles
3:10 am
krauthammer is saying usually you don't do it both ways. >>steve: they criminalized james rosen. they didn't criminalize david sanger. there does appear to be a double standard. >>brian: this statement over the last two weeks, nobody is everr anything. eric holder is not responsible, the president is not responsible. that is the most aggravating thing. everything you're trying to teach people in life, take responsibility for your actions, take responsibility for the people you hire and are in charge of, but no one takes responsibility. benghazi, not really my decision. >>gretchen: both situations, no matter how you look at it are not good. for example, if they didn't know, they should have. if they did know and they're not taking responsibility, that is a bigger issue. it is not good no matter how you look at it. >>brian: i would love to get somebody's perspective that actually made decisions. if someone acknowledges they made decisions, we can get the mind-set. >>steve: we have actually got a story for you, brian, about people who did go
3:11 am
ahead and see something and did something. we're talking about alaska air flight 132 from alaska to oregon. this lady sitting next to a guy, and he's making some weird sounds. and then -- that's the guy right there, alexander hererra, 23 years old from arizona, making some sounds. and then for some odd reason at 30,000 feet, he decides this is a good place to open the door. he's in an emergency exit row. here are some of the people on board explaining what happened next. >> there was a really loud hissing noise. and then lots of people screaming. i thought we were going to crash or something. i was bracing for that. then somebody was yelling stop him! stop him! i turned around and saw a large man trying to open the emergency exit and had it and was yanking on it
3:12 am
and just this loud hissing noise and luckily passengers around him, men and women, tackled him and pulled him off and held him down. he definitely put up a fight. >>gretchen: what did they use? shoe strings and also seat belt extensions that the flight attendants finally got to them in order to restrain this guy until they landed. >>brian: evidently a guy got him in a choke hold. that you can only get from getting pay per view. him and another guy wrestled him to the ground. flight attendants can't handle him but passengers get involved too. >>steve: we're lucky that particular airline stocks extra shoelaces. that's the best they can do. despite all that happened, the flight did arrive only nine minutes late. that guy is going to appear before a federal magistrate later today. >>brian: by the way, you can't open the door. it is impossible.
3:13 am
>>steve: i would like to hope so. >>gretchen: coming up on the show, remember when the president said if you like your doctor, you'll be able to keep them under obamacare? now even the union seems to be realizing that is a wrong statement. stuart varney is saying the honeymoon is over. he's on deck. >>brian: the homeowners are living in garbage. it may look nice but it's it may look nice but it's sitting on a pile of junk.grrrr ahhh let's leave the deals to perfect! yep, and no angry bears. up to 30% off. only at

>>brian: they were some of the biggest supporters of obamacare but union leaders have buyers remorse it seems feeling their health care costs will soon skyrocket. >>gretchen: some companies begin to scale back generous health benefits to avoid being hit with the so-called cadillac tax which will penalize companies offering high cost health care. here's stuart varney to weigh in. >> going to be a long hot summer for obamacare. now the unions start to object to obamacare. the head of the roofers union says repeal it or reform it. there are two problems with it for the unions. number one, union health care plans tend to be relatively expensive and generous. so a lot of employers may dump those plans, pushing
3:18 am
employees into these exchanges. that is bad news on three counts. number one, why do you have a union? if it's not to provide a health care plan, why join the union? membership may go down. number two, costs more to the government. number three, those workers are not going to get the same level of protection they got with the union plan. you've got the cadillac plan which will kick people off these high-end plans. >>steve: the guys who work at cadillac will get kicked off the cadillac plan. the roofers said repeal it. what are the odds of that? >> i think it's growing. >>steve: 54% of americans don't like it according to a gallup poll. >>steve: if there were a vote today i think -- >> if there were a vote today i think it would be repealed and be reformed. >>gretchen: isn't it likely it may not be repealed but be implemented? >> the unions are against it. you've got these exchanges

>>steve: got headlines
3:24 am
for you on this tuesday morning. while you were sleeping senator john mccain made a surprise visit to syria to meet with the rebels there. he is one of america's strongest advocates for a more active role to syria. also overnight a u.s. fighter jet went down off the coast of japan. the american pilot ejected in the pacific open. u.s. crews rescued him. no word on what went wrong with the f-15. gretch, to you. >>gretchen: a young girl is fighting for her life with only weeks to live as she battles a deadly disease in desperate need of a lung transplant, but a national organ donor rule is the one thing keeping doctors from trying to save her life. >> the only thing standing between my daughter living and my daughter dying is the fact that she's 10 and not 12. that's unreal to me. an impossible place to be. you have so much hope and then it just feels like
3:25 am
everything was shattered last week when she got so much worse. >>gretchen: the parents of the dying ten-year-old girl are fighting to change that rule in hopes of saving her life. dr. david samadi is here to weigh in. such a sad story. obviously when parents see that, or anybody sees that, they want to help this little girl. what is the rule in place? she is 10 and can't on the adult list? >> the cutting age is 12 years old. and the upper end is 60 sometimes 65. this is a genetic disease. she has had it for years, cystic fibrosis. the condition is getting worse. she has been waiting for years to get a transplant but the only way she will be able to get that is all the adults will either say no or if there is an extra one it will go to her. historically i can tell you on a surgical basis it was always very difficult to take a 200-pound lung from
3:26 am
a man or woman to give it to a child. but now surgically we have advanced, technology has changed, we are able to take part of the lung and give it to her. it is unfortunate because of two years she is not making the list. and they should change that. >>gretchen: the one problem is that pediatric lungs are rare. in other words, another child would have to die and be on the donor list to be able to give their lung to this little girl. some people ask this tough question, which is: she has cystic fibrosis. what is the life span of somebody, even if she gets this new lung? and does that factor into where she would be placed on the list even if she was eligible? >> that is a tparbt that the committee needs -- that is a factor the committee needs to look at. they are living longer and longer. they go to their 30's and 40's. it is becoming a chronic disease so they have a better chance to live. in a case like this what is going to happen is the surgical team, the ethical team, all of them will get together. they have to have an emergency meeting to take
3:27 am
her case as a special case if she's really sick. usually the organ goes to the sickest person on the list. this is a rare case. as we said there were only 20 cases of transplants in children in the last year. she is not going to have a chance to wait for another pediatric lung to come. hopefully they will take this case seriously. and our hearts go to the parents who are suffering, seeing pictures of her being incubated. >>gretchen: what are the chances even if she gets on this adult list that she will be able to find a match? >> the challenge is still on. that is an ex-lentz question but -- excellent question but at least she is in the game. right now she is completely outside that list and they have been waiting for a long time. hopefully somebody will listen to this segment and will consider her case very seriously. you can sake the life of this beautiful -- you can save the life of this beautiful child. we are voting for her.
3:28 am
>>gretchen: the parents started a petition. can you put that back on the screen. there you go. i can't read the information close enough, but i'll put it on twitter when i get it. there it is. the family has a petition to change the rule on i will put that on twitter as well for you folks out there. dr. samadi, thank you so much. coming up on the show, call it a royal mess. a dream vacation quickly turns into nightmare when a royal caribbean cruise ship catches on fire. a live report coming up next. in honor of national hamburger day we're smashing burgers on the plaza with the founder of [ stewart ] this is the kind of food i love to cook.

3:40 am
concerted targeted things? >>steve: here's the c.e.o. from gibson guitar. he was on with mike huckabee in august 2012 talking about how the feds came after him in particular. >> they came in with 30 swat-attired people with automatic weapons. >> like you were making drugs or something in your factory? >> they came into three factories. they evacuated all our employees into the parking lot. they turned off our video surveillance, and then they seized a lot of goods: guitars, hard drives. we had to replace all the raw materials they seized. and then we had to substitute other materials with no notice. so it was enormously disruptive. since the first raid we have spent $2.4 million just in legal fees
3:41 am
addressing this issue. and we haven't been charged with any. there was no trial. >> what was going on? >>steve: it's interesting. some are connecting the dots where it looks as if his company was targeted much like the tea parties, conservatives were by the i.r.s. why? a number of other guitar makers use exactly the same wood that he was -- he got in trouble for using and so do furniture manufacturers. as it turns out, he is actually a big donator to republican causes whereas the person who runs c.f. martin uses the same stuff, a big democratic fund-raiser and donator, and they have never gone after c.f. martin. >>gretchen: some of the people targeted, the tea parties by the i.r.s. are going to sue the government to get back the costs they incurred to hire lawyers. you've got to see if they can connect the dots, are these companies going to be suing the government saying you have to pay us back for
3:42 am
all these legal fees and lost business as a result. >>steve: it is crazy if they come in with a swat team just because you've got some wood from india there that you did get legally. >>brian: coming up straight ahead, are you having trouble landing a job? maybe it's because your interviews went a little like this: >> why are you trying to get a job with us right now? >> to be honest with you, my boss is kind of a jerk. >>brian: the biggest interview mistakes. >>steve: the department of justice's record grab, are bloggers also protected? are they considered adjournment? the judge is here. vo: traveling you definitely end up meeting a lot more people but

renovated last year. from here the transportation safety board and coast guard will investigate. as for those passengers, we're told they're going to get a refund for their trip and a voucher to have another cruise -- that is if they even want to take another cruise. at this point they might just be happy to come to rainy baltimore and hang out where it's safe. >>gretchen: thanks so much. let's go to steve. >>steve: the federal government versus journalists raised new questions on the hill. one, in the world of the internet are bloggers and tweeters journalists protected by the first amendment? let's talk to judge andrew napolitano. >> it is a great question in light of james rosen and associate press experience. when these were written they didn't have bloggers and tweeters. journalists were people paid to do research and
3:49 am
publish the research, usually cutting-edge research. it could be james, you, it could be me. but if mrs. doocy is doing research and nobody trained her but she is posting it and she has sources, can she protect those sources? they have not answered that. the courts have not answered that. in my opinion she is similarly situated as rosen and the rest of us. >>steve: when matt drudge started this thing called the drudge report. he is getting paid by whom? nobody. he's doing it presumably by -- he's a blogger, he's protected isn't he? >> the purpose of the first amendment is to protect the pursuit of truth and expression of opinion. it doesn't matter if you get paid to pursue the truth or doing it on your own. that's the argument i would make. >>steve: we were talking in the break about if the government officials who order investigations or
3:50 am
raids as we were just talking about -- >> gibson guitar? >>steve: exactly. if those people were to be held liable, what would happen? >> if eric holder were personally liable for what he did to james rosen, that stuff would stop overnight. but the government has written statutes that make it very difficult to sue the government and insulate its employees from personal liability. somehow i think mrs. holder would stop her husband from doing this stuff because they wouldn't have a house left. >>steve: mrs. doocy and mrs. holder just heard their names on television. judge napolitano, thank you very much. the price of your next barbecue just went off. how the skyrocketing cost of beef could bust your summer budget. are you having trouble landing a job? maybe it's because your interview went something like this: >> do you have any weaknesses? >> i'm a little forgetful

3:55 am
tests. >> steve: she has been a teacher for ten years at north park illinois, she had a career in advertising before that and decided to go become a teacher. well, she had had it up to here and she quit on youtube and this is blowing up all over the place. here is ellie rubenstein. >> the flexibility and creativity that concretes learning environments has been elimina eliminated. more tracking of students, less understanding of student differences, more stress on data. no room for innovative teaching or engaged learning. everything that i loved about teaching is extinct, i no longer feel i'm doing anything meaningful. i'm not being able to spark excitement for learning in children in my own way.
3:56 am
rather, i'm being forced to function as a cog in a wheel and this we'll is not turning in the right direction. >> clearly the standardized testing has taken us to another level. you understand what is going on with them. they were graduating from hard up areas, unable to read or keep up with other people, so they standardized the tests to close the schools that are not effective and because of that, the standardized testing, has made people teach too much to the test and not to the students. >> reporte >> gretchen: and fraud, there was a whole cheating scandal about that. >> steve: since she aired the youtube, the district said that she was over the line. was she over the line for quitting on camera?

4:07 am
forward, he said, they may have broken the law. he might have committed a crime. but yet, eric holder had a different take aing we have a long way to go before we are talking about a criminal prosecution of any reporters. listen. >> with regard to the potential prosecution of the press for disclosure of information is nothing that i thought or heard would be a wise policy. my view is quite the opposite. >> gretchen: you have to wonder, is that the only one? because remember, he recused himself from the ap investigation or at least that is what came out the week before. >> brian: by the power invested me, right. >> gretchen: now this one he was personally responsible for and could there be others?
4:08 am
>> steve: that is why it is raising eyebrows. he said, in regard to potential prosecution of the press for the disclosure of material, this is not something i have ever been involved in. let's give him the left of the doubt. >> brian: should he be investigating himself to find out what he did. >> steve: he is. eric holder will be investigator eric holder, what could do brong. >> brian. . ron williams said, you sign a lot of things as an attorney general. everyone just signs things and no one is responsible for anything when they sign things. that was his case and they brawled and you can see that online. he he said there's backward about the process. >> in the rosen case, for
4:09 am
example, the administration decided to invade his privacy to declare him as a suspect as a criminal. and yes, there's a tension between the needs of national security and the free press and the way we have resolved that, the way we have split that difference is to say, you prosecute the person in the government that released the information, but you do not prosecute the journalist. >> gretchen: the biggest leaker in the administration is the administration, they leak stuff every day to make themselves look good. but when there's bad information or whistle blower stuff, they do not like it, that is why they have gone after so many members of the press. >> gretchen: that could be a reason why there should be an independent council. if you find out about attorney generals, they do not do an
4:10 am
investigation, they layout the facts as they see it. it's different than what an independent council could be looking into as far as criminal action. >> if you hire an independent council, it shuts off congressional investigations. this whole thing, as interested as we are, and as much as we want to truth, it will go silent as we have an independent council start interviewing people, get in office, gather people together, and then it will be an explosion. >> steve: that may be a reason that the white house would think, maybe we should go along with that. because next time jay carney is asked a question, he will go, well, the special prosecutor is looking into that. >> gretchen: that is what they are doing anyway. people can just take the fifth. >> we should say for the record that leaks are being investigated. they gave him his book and all the articles about the --
4:11 am
>> steve: they did not look in his personal stuff. it got personal on a flight, a guy decided that this would be a good time to open up the door. >> there was a loud hissing noise and then lots of people screaming. i thought we were going to crash or something. so i was bracing for that, but then somebody was yelling, stop him, stop him and i turned around and saw a large man trying to open the emergency exit and had it and was just yanking on it and just this loud hissing noise and luckily, god bless the passengers around him, men and women, that just tackled him and pulled him off and held him down. he definitely put up a fight.
4:12 am

5:03 am
back of the boat they were on. look at the ship's damage, grandeur of the seas. the passengers were excited about the trip to the bahamas until the fire started. more than 2200 passengers were ordered to gather near the life boats. pretty scary, some people thought that the boat was sinking and they waited on the deck for four hours in complete darkness, witnesses say that crews handed out life vests and oxygen masks and some passengers fainted and even got physically sick because they were so terrified. no one thankfully was injured. the ship never lost power and once the fire was put out, the ship was escorted he to freeport bahamas for inspection. the royal caribbean ceo flying in to survey the damage themselves and all of the passengers getting a certificate for a future cruise and their money back now. they are being flown back to baltimore today, and this just
5:04 am
the latest problem for that industry. there have been more than 20 fires on cruise ships in just the last 15 months and that includes an engine room fire that crippled the carnival triumph, leaving it adrift for days in the gulf of mexico. no word on what caused this most recent fire. gretchen, steven, brian, i just read that they spent $20 million renovating the ship. >> gretchen: hours from now, zimmerman will be back in court and the attorneys will ask that the jurors be able to visit the scene of the shooting and that the jurors names be kept credit and the attorneys will ask that especially damaging audio expert be banned.

the expert claims that he heard trayvon martin begging for his life before being shot. grant acord will be charged as an adult in a plot to bomb his cool. the devices found in his room were pipe bombs, molotov cocktails and a napalm bomb. >> we know there's fear among the people there. we will be there as the visible presence and we need to work with them, if they hear or see anything, do not hesitate to call. >> gretchen: the suspect's mother said my heart goes out to everyone affected by grant's struggle with pandas, a rare form of ocd, a report that she verbally abused players 16 years

>> brian: let's bring in laura, hope you had a nice holiday weekend. >> great to be with you, by the way, the job interview, the no-nos on the job interview, i cannot wait to watch that segment. i had people coming in to interview n interview for the show and i say, tell me you think of the show, and they said, i have not listened to it. you have not listened to it? no, not yet. >> gretchen: do you stop the interview? i usually don't, they have been so poorly trained by someone along the way. >> brian: a lot of the times they have the best grades and they have got wards but they do not have people skills. >> and they say, by the way, if i get hired, i do have a vacation scheduled, i'm going sn snowboarding next weekend.
5:08 am
you have to be kidding me. >> steve: came out over the weekend that there could be a connection with the raid in gibson guitar. the same wood is used by all the competitors. they did not get the swat team treatment. some suggested laura, that maybe because the guy that runs gibson is a big republican donor, maybe they were targeting his company because one of his competitors that uses the aim kind of wood who is a big democratic supporter was not raided. how do you think? >> it does put a different light on it. the point of if competitor donating to democrats is important because if it's the same type of wood and there was a concern, than you have to look at both companies. and you know, sending in the swat teams and all this, i mean,
5:09 am
are they using the guitar wire as a terrorist plot? i mean, the whole thing was so heavy handed and it was like, you know, jack booth thug type tactics, it seemed like it was designed to intimidate, clearly that needs to be looked into more. >> brian: and isn't the big problem the administration no credibility right now saying to the irs that you people are paranoid, when we know what is happening is black helicopter stuff. >> people were telling us we were paranoid since 2007, when some of us were asking about barack obama's experience to be in the role. legitimate questions were raised then and more legitimate questions are raised now. this clearly has to be looked into more given the irs story. >> gretchen: and there's another group of people, called general motors car dealers that feel
5:10 am
they were targeted now as well when they were shut down during the -- >> the dealerships. >> gretchen: yes, could there be a link there. the tea party gets as bump after being targeted by the irs. so, is america, starting to realize that there could be something there as the president said there wasn't. koit be that that is why -- remember when we were talking about the tea party lost the surge in the last couple of years. >> i never bought that story. >> gretchen: is that because nobody could be a tea party group? >> people have a sense of fairness and it's, i told o'reilly the other week, it's not left right on this, it's right wrong. for group s to be singled out, and targeted and harassed and bullied. i think it strikes people as deeply unfair. deeply unjust. and so, it does not surprise me that the tea party is seeing some up surge in its popularity
5:11 am
and donations. i would caution my friends about resting kind of a victim's status mentality, i don't think they are doing that, but i think they are being careful, they have to turn this moment to a step forward in policy and advocate for smart policy that hits people in the gut and in the mind as well. right? you have to have great candidates, you cannot have people making stupid comments about, you know, women and, you know abortion and you can't do that. >> brian: what do you think you is the best way forward? they want independent investigations, what do you think is the most efficient way forward? >> i think the two track, the tea party should continue their legal actions and do discovery so we can find out whose idea was this and whose idea was it to turn up the heat in the way th did against the tea party groups and use this opportunity to say, see, this is what we meant when
5:12 am
we talked about starving the beast of power and money, when they get too bad, they get really unaccountable and we have people who are really, you know malfactors in place who end up doing things like they did tos us. it could be us today and you tomorrow. they have to use it as a, i hate the phrase teach able moment, but they have to use this to educate the public on why big government has to be rolled back and that is the whole tea mo montra. >> steve: thank you, for joining us. >> see you next week, guys. >> gretchen: she has days to live, but the organ that could save her life is tied up in red tape. peter johnson, why are is on that little girl's case. >> brian: then, can you open the door mid flight? a passenger tries to do it, next. people join angie's list for all kinds of reasons.

5:17 am
transplant to survive, but there's a little known rule standing in her way, peter johnson, jr. joins us to talk about this ten-year-old girl. >> she has been in children's hospital in philadelphia since february, she will die unless she gets a lung transplant and the federal government policy through manage called the optn discriminates against children under the age of 12. if she was 12 years old, she probably would have the lung that she needs already. but, the optn and there's a head of it, a fellow named john p.roberts, one of the great transplant surgeons in the united states, and there's a petition on to him, needs to wait and she can not be considered in the aim way that adults are -- same way that adults are considered in the united states.
5:18 am
>> steve: there's difference age brackets, she was approved for an adult lung, and they said, wait a minute, you have to be 12, not ten. >> i spoke to parents and the aunt of this little girl, the heart break is not a way to describe it unless sarah gets the lung, she will be forced to go on what is called a heart/lung machine where the blood will be pumped outside of her body to keep her alive. so we have this policy in the country that really discriminated against children under 12 and there aren't that many of them that need pediatric lung transplants and we heard this morning, the lungs that are taken from adult victims that gave their lungs, they can be shaved down in a way that are provided to these children. but for some reason, really based on their inability to come up with a math algorithm, they
5:19 am
said no, if you are under 12, there's going to be two priorities. we will not grade you in the same way as we grade adults. if you look at the objective criteria, if she was graded as an adult, she'd be given the lung to survive. there are few continues that we get to help people in our lives. i think we need to speak out for sarah here today. we can do it on fox and at, a petition to say, let's look at this policy to help all of the children, to not discriminate against all of the children including sarah and we can begin to save one life at a time. it's wrong, it's wrong-headed, it's immorale, and it's not practical. it will have a devastating effect on the family. we will stay on top of this. >> steve: good, you know, peter a couple of times they change
5:20 am
today rules to make it more fair, but as we are finding out right now, it's not fair at all in her case. >> it's not fair at all, there should be a uniformity based on the severity of disease and the federal government said so, but they did not apply it to children like sarah under 12 years old. let's hear what she has to say. she said, it's possible, but it's not easy. >> it's not easy. but it's not impossible. >> let's make it possible. >> steve: let's,, peter, thank you. all right, straight ahead, having trouble landing a job in maybe that is because your interview went something like this. jill, hello, i'm c hthe preside ceo of the corporation, how did you hear about the job? >> my friend e-mailed the job, on i do not know what it's
