9:02 am
science professor says research indicates that early voting might not increase overall turnout but brings out people who would have voted anyway. >> the republican presidential nominee donald trump is commenting on the new york times report of his nearly $1 billion loss and the possibility that he may not have paid federal taxes for 18 years. >> i've been saying from the beginning of this campaign how ridiculous, complex and yes unfair the tax system it is. it is an unfair system and so complex that very few people understand it. fortunately i understand it. >> trump said that he legally used tax laws to his benefit. his campaign issued a statement that the documents sent anonymously to the times were illegally obtained. hillary clinton also spoke about donald trump not paying federal income tax. in a campaign appearance in ohio clinton said it's important to recognize what paying zero taxes means for the country. >> zero taxes means zero for
9:03 am
our vets, zero for our military, zero for grants to send young people to college, zero for health, zero for education. >> clinton says she and her husband have released their tax returns and they pay a lot of taxes. she says she is grateful they are able to contribute to the country. mike pence and tim kaine are set to scare off tonight in the first and only debate. both men are experienced politicians. trump's running mate, mike pence, spent a decade in congress. while clinton's senator tim kaine is the former governor of virginia and a trial attorney. joining us in the studio is joe and san francisco chronicle political writer joe. thank you for coming in to talk about all of this. >> thank you. >> last time you were on together, i had mentioned that i thought trump missed a couple of areas in regard to the
9:04 am
clinton foundation, benghazi. is it mike pence's job to go after what trump didn't go after last week. >> you will see some of that. and his job is don't screw it up. people want to see that he is going to be the saner person in the white house, in the oval office if trump were to be elected. he needs to keep a steady hand on the steering wheel. >> joe, don't you think he needs to come in firmer, not just steady? make a statement. >> a statement in a sense. i think in contrast to what joe is saying, being steady hand is important but i think that governor pence wants to go after tim kaine tonight and distinguish their records. and the rnc and the trump campaign have already released a new television ad yesterday that goes after kaine for his judgment in can commuting the sentence of a person convicted of triple murder from the death penalty to life in prison. that is meant to question his judgment. even though the two have a lot
9:05 am
in their background that is similar. he wants to show that they are different. >> are the vice presidential candidates able to take their gloves off more than the presidential candidates? >> i think one of them is the apoll gist. the other is the attack dog. he is more of an attack puppy. >> they are tame. you won't see a lot of attacking. it will be like that's not an attack. >> we have heard the phrase enthusiasm gap. will anything that we see tonight close that gap. >> no. these are not the type of guys that generate enthusiasm. pence is a conservative, social conservative. he makes sure -- he's out there to tell the christian right and the conservative base that trump is okay. i'm here. don't worry about it. >> so you're saying that no one cares about the campaign. >> other than the people on this panel and if you're a
9:06 am
baseball fan, you're not watching tonight. >> i think it doesn't hurt her, certainly. and she has to worry about trying to turn out the vote. so it's possible that maybe he could make people a little more enthusiastic. honestly most people -- not most people. i would say all people when they cast a ballot are not saying i like that vp candidate so i'm going to vote for this person for president. >> the reverse is not true as well. if you have a bad performance. >> right. >> if you have a dan quail moment where lloyd benson says you keep comparing yourself to keen deand you're not john f. kennedy then you make the person who picked you as a nominee look bad. sarah palin did that with mccain. >> and that is magnified with social media. >> yeah. after the last debate many asked if donald trump would
9:07 am
study up where hillary clinton came prepared. these vp candidates, are they studying? are they preparing with the same intensity? and how much are they getting coached from their presidential nominees above them. >> i think these guys will be well prepared. they're career politicians for the most part for both of them. the preparation won't be a problem. they will stay on message even though both have disagreed with the top person on the ticket. pence was not with trump on the muslim ban. >> if i'm tim kaine, do i call that out? >> absolutely. just like tim kaine was not with hillary on trade. and neither was pence with trump. you will see there are differences. those will be called out. >> how much of what people think are influenced by guys like you afterwards? afterwards there's a pundit session. and people decide what they
9:08 am
think by watching guys like you afterwards say what they think. >> i think that's part of it. but i think there's a mistrust of the media right now so i think that some people -- if we were to say red, people would say blue. i think everything is part of the conversation. >> i'll give you a different perspective on that. slightly different. you should only listen to me. >> this joe, not that joe. >> which joe was it. >> cynical joe. >> wherever w my wife and i will watch them. i turn the television the moment that the thing is over. i don't want to be influenced. i want to make up my own mind. i'm fascinated after i have said something on the air to go back and read or watch what other people have said. oh, he thought the same way or he saw something that i missed or whatever. if you're a viewer, you should always use your own judgment on this. don't let other people tell what you to think. you should listen to us giving you insights ahead of time like we are doing today. but always make up your own
9:09 am
mind. be a good consumer of media. >> there you go. >> we appreciate the conversation. we will carry the debate live here on ktvu at 6:00. we will also be live streaming it on and on our ktvu mobile app. afterwards we will have post- debate analysis on the 7:00 and 10:00 news on ktvu. another big story we have been following throughout the day, bay area traffic as you know is getting worse and worse. now a new study by the mta says the worst bay area commute is the afternoon drive from the east bay towards san francisco. that is not right. >> no. it's from san francisco to the east bay. >> right. >> there you go. >> heading out to the bay bridge. if you are on 101 and you try to get on 101, hey, let's get on 101 at 4:00 in the afternoon. >> not a good idea. >> or 2:00. it's getting earlier and earlier. >> we're talking about bad spots.
9:10 am
where do you think is the worst bay area commute? that's our twitter question. a lot of people tweeting us using the hashtag ktvu 9. the oc says the most congested is 880 through hayward. i don't care what studies show. hayward is the worst always. >> certified super woman chiming in. highway 24 is the worst, especially in the afternoon. add an accident in the tunnel or after it and you might as well walk. >> and another person on twitter says all of it, 580 between castro valley and livermore is terrible. >> yes. >> bay bridge, 680, san francisco to fremont. no shortage of opinions on this. >> somebody said the bay area. >> yes. >> thank you for talking to us and tweeting us. we will share your responses at 9:30. coming up next on mornings on 2 the 9, disney preparing for a new attraction next summer. the upcoming ride based on a comic book superhero team and
9:11 am
movie franchise. and google is unveiling a new line of products including a phone that they hope will rival the iphone. we take a look at what is being rolled out.
9:12 am
9:13 am
>> taking a look at stocks. at 9:13, the dow jones is down by about 48 points. similar story, ever so slightly down for the nasdaq and s&p. happening now, google is getting read tee announce several new products at an event underway in san francisco. the company is expected to unveil two new smart phones, a new virtual home assistant that is meant to compete with amazon echo. it can control the lights and answer questions. the new smart phones are designed to compete with the new iphone 7. we are joined via
9:14 am
skype by scott, editor at large for tech crunch. i have to tell you, if you're trying to compete with the iphone, all three of us at the anchor desk have an iphone. the iphone has this factor. if i send you a text on the iphone, it's blue. so everybody knows i have an iphone. how do you get around that if you're google? >> google has a big challenge ahead of it. the fact is we might think of the iphone being dominant in the united states. across the world, iphone is not quite as dominant. google has a big opportunity. the goal is not necessarily to sell the most phones or make the most revenue off of the phones. the goal is to make everyone on the planet use google services. when they use google search, g- mail, maps, things that thick build into the android phones, that's when it makes the big money. >> let's talk about people with apple that may switch to google. the new iphone doing away with
9:15 am
the headphone jack. what does apple have to do to turn enough people. what does apple have to commit? >> it made the biggest transgression. a lot of people are frustrated and might sit out this iteration of the iphone. i think apple could have put cooler features into the phone. this is google's biggest opportunity. if it knew that apple was going without the headphone jack, it launched at the perfect time. >> google's tore advertising has been the cash cow, if you may, for the business. is search advertising kind of taking a back seat a little bit, maturing industry and this is another reason why they're going head on with apple and
9:16 am
amazon and facebook? >> i wouldn't think about it that way. >> okay. >> google is a big participant in the display advertising business, the ad sense ads which are basically look at a website and automatically generate something that they think is relevant. that is a revenue stream that isn't working as well for google right now. i think really it wants to create an inlet to the future industries that it wants to break into. specifically the phones will be equipped with a google assistance. an assistant similar to siri. it needs to test this and get feedback and learn what people want. that will be the future. not just smart phones but home commuting as well as virtual reality and other things where it needs to have control of the device. so even if this isn't necessarily a big money maker for google, it's a huge opportunity to wedge it into people's lives to expand with other services. >> what about the partnership
9:17 am
between samsung and google? how is that affected by this. >> i think the manufacturers of phones are a little uneasy when google starts making its own phones and working with other manufacturers. samsung feels a little alienated in this situation. it doesn't have much of a choice. if samsung doesn't like what google is doing in terms of android, it doesn't have another option. >> good point. >> google has built up so much power that it can abuse its partners and there is nothing they can do about it. >> real quick, how do you think this is going to go? do you think google will make a significant inlet into the hardware business? >> i think it may be able to capture a decent market of the android high-end phone space. but the fact is that's really not that big. people who want to spend a lot of money on a phone are going to buy the new iphone. android is for low-priced budget customers who want something that doesn't cost as
9:18 am
much. this falls in the middle. it's not an iphone but not a low-end android phone. developers, nerdier people. but it won't necessarily convince long-time iphone users that google made a phone and now i need to jump over. >> thank you for joining us, scott. we will be watching what happens closely. >> new at 9:00, we're getting a first look at the renovations at california adventure park. it is being transformed into the gardens of the galaxy. i have to get that right. the superhero ride is scheduled to take off, if you will, next summer. >> nice to see what you did there. the giants are in the playoffs. but tomorrow night it's win or go home. they face the mets. two years ago the giants were in the same position. joe fonzi has a look at the
9:19 am
team's recent playoff history. >> the giants are champions in the national league west. >> six years ago, the giants needed a win against the padres on the final day of the seas ton to clench the national league west. they defeated the rangers. d the rangers. >> two years later, the giants won three straight elimination games in cincinatti and three straight against the cardinals before sweeping detroit in the world series for their second championship in three years. >> it's back at the wall. >> and then in 2014, the giants were the last team in the playoff field. that season ended in a thrilling 7-game world series win over the kansas city royals. whether the names are you know prehuff, marco or travis, this group of giants knows it's a
9:20 am
different game in october h it comes to the playoffs, it's just about getting in. >> it hasn't been smooth. but we've got just enough wins to sneak us into the post season. now we're on the same page as everyone else. >> we were confident that we would get into the post season. >> we had faith that we could do this. we never got down or ourselves. >> just like 2014, the giants hit the road for a one-game wild card. win and they move on. lose and they're finished. this time it's in new york. and like two years ago in pittsburgh, madsen baumgarten will be the guy who takes the mound. >> we have been there before with him on the mound. we are confident in him. wouldn't have it any other way. we're a confident group. we don't think of ourselves as underdogs. we know that the mets have a better record playing at home. we don't care about that. we like that. >> that's what you expect every team in the playoffs to say. until the giants have lived for
9:21 am
three world series championships in five years, no one will discount their chances to make it four in seven. joe fonzi, ktvu fox 2. >> the national league wild card game is tomorrow at 5:00 p.m. the winner will face the chicago cubs in the division series. >> can't wait. >> i know. >> what was it that you said about the mets pitching. >> bring it. we will be right back after the break. >> i'm going to go to your house and watch. >> you're more than welcome. >> let's all do it together.
9:22 am
9:23 am
>> a frightening threat on social media. that threat was discovered last night. >> auditor account with menacing images of a clown tweeted about death threats. said they would be cupping to fairfield high school and grant middle school. the police deemed the threats
9:24 am
not credible but increased security. >> i trust law enforcement. and they deemed it not to be credible. we move on from here and follow what law enforcement is telling us, which is this isn't a credible threat. >> i really hope this is all just a prank for halloween. if it's not, i really hope that somebody tracks you down and puts you behind bars before this happens. >> there have been similar social media threats around the country for about the last month or so. they have all turned out to be pranks. in pennsylvania and new jersey a number of teens have been arrested and they could face charges. let's go to dave clark in the news room for some of the top stories we're following. >> good news, evacuation orders have been lifted in santa clara county and roads that have been closed have reopened relating to the paloma fire. it is now 90% contained. up from 85% last night. since last week, it has burned more than 4,000 acres and
9:25 am
destroyed 12 homes. the cause of the fire is still under investigation. igation. in the meantime we're learning more about a woman who says she was raped on the stanford university campus by a mail student friday morning. campus police say it happened in the mail student's dorm room. the woman reported it to campus security and security reported it to police. the woman did not know the attacker and we don't know how she got into the dorm room. >> she is deciding whether to make a statement to the police department. we understand that it was traumatic. >> the alleged rape was reported the same day that governor brown signed some new laws that would require longer jail sentences for sexual assault convictions in the aftermath of the brock turner case. he sexually assaulted a woman on campus and served half of his jail sentence.
9:26 am
crews are working 12-hour shifts to clear debris from the commuter train crash in hoboken. the commuter train is still stuck inside the train terminal where it crashed on thursday. federal investigators want to locate and retrieve a data recorder from the front car of the train. officials say another data recorder that is supposed to record the speed and the braking information was not working at the time. and investigators say the train's engineer can't remember anything from the crash. that crash killed one woman. it injured more than 100 other people. those are just some of our morning headlines from the news room. mike, sal, gasia, i'll send it back to you. >> thank you, dave. coming up, was it an inside job? coming up, the reason some say they believe the thieves that robbed kim kardashian-west in paris were tipped off and how they are own social media post may have made her a target. up next, how a young man's life has changed thanks to the
9:27 am
generosity of strangers. they prey on our children, spending billions. addicting 17,000 california kids each year. eventually killing one-third of them. now tobacco companies are spending millions to... defeat prop 56. because in every state that's raised tobacco taxes, smoking rates go down. so who are you going to trust? pediatricians, cancer groups and the califronia pta who all... support prop 56. or the tobacco companies trying to kill it. vote yes on 56.
