4:03 pm
>> we know far more about what the founders thought impeachment was for, fear of entanglement. >> i think it's a joke. this is a sham. >> reporter: president trump and republicans pushed again today to have the whistle- blower testify. one issue that ambassador bolten brought up is the regular clash versus the irregular clash, led by giuliani. i'm sure there will be a lot of questions. >> especially following up on that new revelation, greg. obviously, there were some fiery moments. republicans and democrats have their clear positions here. looking at this a little more broadly, the significance for the american people. from i think this is the first time right, that the american people are having a chance to look at this from their perspective, and decide did the president commit a high crime
4:04 pm
or misdemeanor, which is what the democrats want them to believe, because that is a bar for impeachment. what the republicans want them to determine, wading through all of these facts for five hours, is the republicans want them to believe this is a political move. >> the republican strategy was two fold. on the one hand, they pushed the notion that what you were hearing from these diplomats was second, third hand information. they also said the military aid eventual went to ukraine, and no investigation was ever opened into the bidens. no harm, no foul. how do you think their strategy played today? >> you're looking at career diplomats. two guys that have been in the government for a long time, who have worked for presidents on both sides of the aisle. ambassador taylor said today, i'm not hear to take sides. i'm here to answer questions. to answer your question, alex, at the end of the day, joaquin castro, as he was questioning these witnesses, is attempted murder a crime? is attempted robbery a crime? to his point, he said the fact this even was moved into
4:05 pm
motion, even though things got cleaned up, and that money was released, that still indicates there was still some kind of quid pro quo. >> we'll have to see if that's how the american people interpret what they're doing. we did get this new information about a call with the president and gordon sondland, likely to hear from the aid coming up on friday. that seems to be a big focus of where things will be now. >> absolutely. no one expected that today. that aid is going to testify in private deposition on friday. we'll see if they bring him public. the real question is what these guys set forth today. they talked about second hand, third hand information. they set the foundation for what the rest of these public hearings are going to look like. yet, we have not heard from someone who had firsthand knowledge. and sondland, on wednesday is a real opportunity. he will be asked did you make that phone call, did you hear the things that the president
4:06 pm
said, and those who are closest to the president have still said they won't testify, despite being subpoenaed. >> ambassador sondland is going to be a key witness, and he comes up next week. >> we have the full hearing, as well as reaction on our home page, just head over to authorities are hoping new surveillance video, and a larger reward will help to identify the suspects who are accused of kidnapping, and killing a tech executive. investigators say tashar autry was forcibly taken from his home last month. one of the suspects appears to be carrying a duffel bag. the victim's body was later found in the santa cruz mountains. a reward to help find those suspects is increased now to $150,000, and it expires on december 30th. anyone with any information in this case is asked to put in a

4:18 pm
amounts or .01. that's just about it. looking ahead to the weekend, and to next week, it still looks dry. the weekend will be on the warmer side. we're thinking some more 70s, and maybe a few spots right around 80 degrees by sunday. here's the satellite. you probably noticed if you're in the fog, definitely, that's all you've been dealing with. also, high clouds to the mix. we have partly cloudy, to mostly cloudy skies over a good portion of the bay area. current numbers, we have some warm readings still. look at santa rosa. a change here. their high for today. 71. they've dropped down to 57 degrees. san francisco chilly. at least by . half moon bay, 54 degrees. here's our live camera, you can barely pick out the bay bridge. the fog is making a comeback. on the top portion of your screen, upper level clouds moving in from the pacific. we're going to hold onto the cloud cover. the marine player over the past few days has been very shallow.

4:20 pm
not only people know what they're supposed to be doing with their trash, and do it responsibly, but know that people that are not the going to follow the rules, that are going to break the law, that we're going to hold them accountable, so now we're going to make sure those people that are breaking the law are going to be held accountable, and pay the consequences. >> contra costa county also plans to install surveillance cameras in key areas where dumping occurs. district attorney, nancy o'malley says several attorneys in her office will prosecute illegal dumping cases. all right, giants fans, meet the new manager. that's the new general manager. now there is the man that has been tapped to replace the retired bruce bochy, but some are criticizing this selection. and things are getting serious tonight on the cultural phenomenon that is the masked singer. we're down to the top five, as triumph, the insult comic dog

4:23 pm
the san francisco giants today introduced their new manager. gabe kapler has some big shoes to fill with the team, replacing bruce bochy, who of course, retired when the season ended. >> kapler's arrival comes with some controversy and questions. some of the questions got answered today during the introduction news conference. >> yeah, a lengthy press conference. there's a lot to unpack here. it's been an eventful week for the giants. hiring scott harrison on monday. today they announced gabe kapler. here he is, donning the number 19 giants jersey at his introductory press conference,
4:24 pm
which lasted more than an hour. probably 2/3 of that was spent on a sequence of events, as a dodger's player developer, a minor league player was accused of sexual assault. today he spoke at length about lessons learned. >> i'm sorry that i didn't make all the rate moves. everything that i did, i acted on from a place of goodness, and from my heart, and wanting to do the right thing, but i was naive. i was in over my skis, and trying to do things on my own, when it was very clear that i needed council, and i needed counsel from people like i've met in this community over the course of the last two weeks. and going forward, i would be seeking out that council. >> gabe never tried to hide anything. the incidents that happened, he reported up the chain of command, within baseball
4:25 pm
operations. the baseball operations group referred him to legal counsel in l.a. everything we did from that point forward was done collectively as an organization. >> as for the baseball side of the story, kapler was fired with his two years with the phillies. those teams lost 163. not exactly a stellar track record there. but remember, bruce bochy was not a hall of fame manager with the padres. he hit it big in his second job with the giants. the next step will be to fill out a coaching staff. the one thing we do know, ron wodas will return as third base coach for his 23rd year in the organization. so a smidge of continuity. >> kapler has to address these past issues. do you think he was able to put that behind him? and he is going to be able to focus on what he wants to focus on in the field?
4:26 pm
>> i think so. they addressed every possible concern. were the answers somewhat scripted and rehearsed? yeah, but i do get the feeling he's sincere, i do get the feeling he believes in learning from his mistakes, both on the field, and off. there's a lot of big decisions to be made. between the gm, and now the new manager, they've got a lot going on. >> yeah, they certainly do. all right scott, thanks very much. appreciate it. thousands of workers with the uc system on a one day strike. still to come, more on the unfair labor practices that they say is costing hard working people their jobs. and pg and e is broken. that's the message from one lawmaker. we'll talk with state senator scott wiener about that plan, next here on the 4.
4:27 pm
4:28 pm
4:29 pm
in response to the thousands of wildfires sparked by pg and e equipment, and those widespread power outages, across california, one local lawmaker is planning to introduce a bill that would require pg and e to become a government owned utility. joining us to talk more about this plan is state senator scott wiener from san frwiener we always appreciate your time. why do you feel it's necessary? >> pg and e is broken.
4:30 pm
it doesn't work in its current form, where the company is so focused on its profits, and shareholders, and wall street that it clearly hasn't done the job, in terms of investing in its infrastructure, so its distribution system is in terrible shape. we need a different structure, and we have a number of publicly owned utilities in the state of california, delivering reliable state power, and reneed to explore that with pg and e. san francisco is trying to purchase assets, a form of public utility, and i think we need to look more broadly at this broken company. >> you mentioned that a number of mayors across california, they have been pushing a plan for pg an e to become a customer owned cooperative. what do you think about that particular idea, and how does that differ from the plan that
4:31 pm
you are going to put forward. mayors are advocating to turn pg and e into a customer coop. these are all potentially the right solution, and i think it makes sense to have a number of different ideas on the table. so i don't view these as competitor ideas. they are both new approaches, that need to be explored. i happen to support the public ownership option and i want to make sure that public ownership is at the table as we're having this discussion. but i'm glad there are a number of different ideas out there. >> how do you think that all of these plans get d in the end? you have a lot of differing views as you pointed out. >> it's a complicated issue, and i know the governor has been working very hard in terms of coming up with ideas, i know
4:32 pm
he's keeping an open mind. the governor, and the legislature are going to have to work together. there are many stakeholders involved. i can't predict what the end result is going to be, but i do know that public ownership has a lot of merit and we need to strongly consider it, and it's something that i support. >> as you know, pg and e is pushing back strongly on plans such as yours, specifically saying that a takeover of its p cities would lead to higher costs for people living in rural areas, where fire is of course of great concern. what is your response to that issue? >> that's a scare tactic by pg and e. i think anytime pg and e makes a statement, the public should take it with a grain of salt. of course, pg and e is going to
4:33 pm
participate in scare tactics. while i'm flattered that pg and e thinks san francisco is so important that the system will collapse without it, this is a huge system, and san francisco is just one piece of it. >> we have to leave the conversation there. we always appreciate it. state senator scott wiener. you're planning to introduce this legislation to turn pg and e into a public facility next year. an investigation into the recent pg and e power shutoff. this morning, the cpuc voted unanimously to look into whether pg and followed regulations. more than a million californians were impacted by those power shutoffs during the utilities efforts to try to keep its lines from starting fires. roughly 26,000 university of california workers all across the state held a one day strike today.
4:34 pm
>> other protesting what they call is a pattern of unfair labor practices, specifically involving the outsourcing of jobs at hospitals, and uc campuses. more now from the picket lines. >> it's been two and a half years since these employees have had a contract. they say they're fighting against up fair labor practices, while the university of california says it's unfortunate things have gotten to this point, and they say they're ready to get back to the bargaining table. >> 25,000 uc workers across 10 uc campus are on strike. >> tha it isn't fair to us as employees who have been here for a long period of time. >> the american federation of state, county, and municipal employees local 3299 filed unfair labor charges, accusing the university of california of
4:35 pm
secretly expanding its outsourcing to low wage contractors, and avoiding negotiations with its own employees. they argue, outsourcing eliminates middle class career pathways, and imposes lower wages, more inequality, and more risk of employer abuse. >> because i have five children. i'm a single mother, i need my job. >> a statement from the university of california office of the president says despite union concerns about contracting, quote, the number of represented employees has actually grown by double-digits in the past five years. uc's contracts protect employees from displacement due to contracting, and no employee can be term new year's terminated as a result. she hopes both sides can come to an agreement. >> for our staff, who do all of this through the two unions are tremendous. we feel the true impact for
4:36 pm
them as well. we want them to get back to work as fast as possible. >> reporter: uc is offering a guaranteed 3 to 3.5% raise each year, and the same health insurance rates, and pensions. picketers say it's not about the money, or benefits, and they won't stop until changes are made to protect them. in san francisco, ktvu fox 2 news. federal reserve chairman, jerome powell testified before congress today about the nation's economic future. powell told the senate committee, that the economy is in a strong position, and showing signs of growth. powell also indicated that the federal reserve is unlikely to adjust interest rates anytime soon, so long as the economy stays on its current path. >> our economy is in a strong position. we have growth, we have a
4:37 pm
strong consumer sector. the very, very low and even negative rates that we see around the world would not be appropriate for our economy. >> while the economy looks steady, powell also cautioned that challenges remain, such as slow growth overseas, trade tensions, and low inflation. an eye opening admission from facebook. the company acknowledges a bug in its app would open a user's camera without their permission. up next, the actions taken by facebook, and the lingering concerns for users. and in bay area weather, lots of clouds today, even cooler temperatures. that cooling trend will continue in your thursday forecast, and maybe we could be adding some drizzle to the forecast as well. we'll have that coming up. t coming up.

c1 c1 facebook rushed to fix a bug that allowed its app access
4:41 pm
to the camera on a user's phone, without their knowledge. an updated app is available. there are still some concerns here. for more, i'm joined by ryan eldredge of nurse on-call. so ryan, people were scrolling through their news feed on facebook, and somehow the camera was accessed. >> yeah, this was first reported by a twitter user, joshua maddux. he did a screen capture of his iphone. as he within the through his news feed. as he moved from one screen to another, he noticed the background was translucent. his camera was on. other people had the same issue. at first, maybe it's just a bug, facebook has bugs just like any other app. but there's an inherent distrust of facebook right now, where, is it really a bug, or are you doing something weird?
4:42 pm
there's been fears for years about facebook activating the microphone without a user's knowledge. a coworker talking about buying a cat, and all of a sudden she started getting cat food stories on her news feed, and she's like wait a second. while this is a bug that facebook is reporting, it does make us all very suspicious, every time we see something like this. >> his camera was pointed there at the carpet, but this idea that facebook, i didn't even know they had the ability to access the camera. do we know if any photos or videos were uploaded due to this? >> reporter: facebook says no photos or videos were uploaded. but again, we've got to take facebook's word on that. just two years ago, if you uploaded a photo to facebook, but chose not to share it on your timeline, facebook still held that photo, but then they had a data breach, and all of those photos were accessed by
4:43 pm
bad guys. facebook is saying nothing was uploaded, but we've got to again, take that with a grain of salt. >> is it there a way on this facebook app for me it to make sure that they don't have access to the camera? >> reporter: normally, when you open up an app for the first time, and it needs access to different things on your phone. if you've already allowed the access, you don't give it access again. there's no way to really like, i get you can go into settings, go into facebook, settings, and turn off the camera, and access things like that, but ultimately it doesn't mean they can't turn it back on. they were trying to use it for their stories app, so you could add things to your story. it was a mess. >> now i understand, when you mention the story aspect.
4:44 pm
when i open up the app, and i want facebook to have access to my pictures, those are things that i've already taken i understand when i want to do a post on something, but this idea it can access information in realtime, that's concerning. >> reporter: we've seen overall cyber security for years about things like spyware that will access a camera on a computer or a phone, and report back to a hacker. every time we see stories like this, we get a little concerned, especially when it's facebook. we're concerned about their ability to protect users' privacy. what was i doing, when i was looking at facebook. often, i'm looking at facebook, just before i go to bed at night. and i don't want facebook to see inside what's happening in my bedroom. that makes me nervous. >> it gets exposed.
4:45 pm
as they say, they have updated the app, you just need to go to the app store, and update this information. ryan eldredge, thanks so much, appreciate it. >> reporter: you're welcome. you probably noticed it today. a little bit of a dip in those temperatures compared to yesterday. much cooler. here's a live look. pretty gray there. a lot of clouds it looks like. >> yeah, it's kind of a dark, foggy look in the south bay. >> the entire bay area, we have cooled off a bit, and that trend will continue. here's another camera for you, looking out toward mount diablo. temperatures, we started out the week on the cold side. that trend will continue into thursday. by the weekend, sunday will be the warmest day of the upcoming weekend. that could lead to possibly, a few low 80s for places like
4:46 pm
santa rosa. maybe gilroy as well. here's the satellite out here in the pacific. you can see a big batch of high clouds offshore. we have kind of a layered cloud cover. the dense fog, at the surface. you go up above 15, 20,000 feet. you have the higher clouds moving in. it all leads to that cloudy pattern we have right now. most areas, reporting mostly cloudy skies from ukiah, down toward monterey bay this afternoon. santa rosa, already cooling off to 57. san francisco, 54. still a few 70s toward concord and the livermore area. here's our live camera toward the bay. you can still see the dense fog, but then high clouds working their way back into the picture. we will have the cloud cover in your forecast for tomorrow. look at this. maybe a little bit of some drizzle. especially coast side, right around san francisco. that will be tomorrow morning. then into the afternoon hours, look for more cloud cover
4:47 pm
throughout the afternoon. this is 12:00. then this is 4:00 as well. temperatures approaching 60, 61 degrees. this is a cooler system we are tracking offshore, and this will set the stage for some drizzle tomorrow morning, especially coast side, and right around the bay. no more 70s for tomorrow. friday, we begin to clear out by the afternoon hours. that will set the stage for a sunny, and a warmer weekend. stormtrack is way up here, up toward portland and seattle. for us, our dry weather stretch will continue. 60s, 70s, and a few spots sunday could be right around 80 degrees. here's the forecast model. this is 8:00 tomorrow morning, showing some clouds, and maybe some drizzle. or some sprinkles near the coast. maybe .02, if we're lucky. into the afternoon hours, some cloud cover. that's for thursday into friday. we'll start out the day with some clouds, and maybe some valley fog here. this is friday morning, and then into the afternoon hours, we scale back on the clouds. this will set the stage for that sunny, and warm weekend.
4:48 pm
