1:00 pm
wasn't to be. the club dismissing it as a private membership category. let's hear now from the words of billy payne. >> whenever that question is asked, all issues of membership are now and have been historically subject to the private deliberations of the members and that statement remains accurate and remains my statement. >> reporter: now, her four predecessors, all male, the four previous male ceos, suzanne, of ibm have all been offered membership categories as well. for now at least no further comment on this. we were kind of given a heads up this would be the case an chairman payne's press conference and so it would prove, suzanne. >> how much outrage is there over this, the fanct that nothig is going to change here? >> reporter: we sampled a few opinions earlier in the week and we have to say most people out
1:01 pm
on the course are here basically to take in the spectacular surroundings and follow the top names in world golf, tiger woods and rory mcilroy. this is not an agenda on the top of every patrons' lips but there's been a lot of pubic outcry. we've been hearing on cnn throughout the week. one of the protesters in 2003 was vocal but it hasn't gotten the objective she wanted and this issue remains on the table. it would be very, very helpful, indeed, were we to hear from ibm and mrs. rometty herself on this, questions that need to be answered. is she actually a golfer? we do understand that she does play the game. if so, then is she also a member of another club as well? well, that doesn't distract from the main plot, the main issue, if you like, of female membership. it is kind of an interesting subplot, a subtext to this whole thing, but, yes, masters week is here and it is not without
1:02 pm
controversy. suzanne? >> patrick, if you get any of those answers, we will definitely get back to you to see if they have anything to say about it. it looks like it's status quo. thank you, patrick. appreciate it. top of the hour, i'm suzanne malveaux. want to get you up to speed. rescue crews back in force in north texas today. we are searching for people still trapped after a series of storms swept through the area yesterday. now, watch what happened to one family when a tornado slammed arlington. >> oh, my god. we better get in the house. >> the storm flattened hundreds of homes and businesses, several people were hurt, but remarkably no one was killed. one woman says she had only seconds to take cover. >> it was so scary.
1:03 pm
it was too scary. it came to fast, quick. i couldn't move fast enough. i went to get my purse and my medicine to take in the bathroom and it hit before i could get up to get it. just right there. >> it's a sea change in the race for the white house after sweeping three states last night, mitt romney now more than halfway to the total number of delegates he needs to clinch the gop nomination. now he's setting his sights on the president. >> nancy pelosi famously said we would have to pass obama care to find out what was in it. president obama has turned that advice into a campaign strategy. he wants us to re-elect him so we can find out what he'll actually do. with all the challenges the nation faces, this is not the time for president obama's hide and seek campaign. the man accused of shooting seven people execution-style in a california religious college, he's going to be arraigned today. 43-year-old one goh is charged with murder and kidnapping.
1:04 pm
last night hundreds of people attended a memorial service for the victims. oakland's police chief described the shooting as a calculated cold-blooded execution in the class. four former new orleans police officers, they're going to find out shortly if they're going to spend the rest of their lives in prison for killing unarmed civilians. this happened on a city bridge in the aftermath of hurricane katrina. they shot six unarmed people killing two. there's a sentencing hearing under way. there's a fifth former officer who's going to be sentenced for covering up the crime. you're looking at live pictures from memphis. this is where today on the 44th anniversary of his assassination the city is renaming a street for the reverend martin luther king, jr. king was killed on the balcony of the lorraine motel back in 1968. later this hour we're going to talk to a man who spent two years traveling many of the
1:05 pm
roads that honor the civil rights leader. that is coming up at 1:30 eastern. mitt romney riding high after sweeping three primaries. it happened last night. the wins put him in a strong position to potentially nab the nomination. means his focus now turning from the republican rifvals to president obama. >> unlike president obama, you don't have to wait until after the election to find out what i believe. or what my plans are. i have a pro-growth agenda that will get our economy back on track and get americans back to work. this administration thinks our economy is struggling because the stimulus was too small. the truth is we're struggling because our government has grown too big. >> all right. here is talk about it, political director mark preston. good to see you again. first of all, last night that was a big night for romney. clean sweep, all three primaries. does this mean essentially this is the guy who is going to move forward eventually to take on obama? >> well, suzanne, the republican
1:06 pm
establishment wants it to be. the only person right now is rick santorum who says he wants to stay in the race and in many ways, you know, he should be afforded that opportunity to make his own decision. he did win 11 states, 11 states. he has drawn this out, but rick santorum has to make that decision. if you look at the math, it's really almost impossible for rick santorum to win the nomination. >> why does he stay? and can he afford to stay, rick santorum, until the convention? >> he can afford. he doesn't need a whole lot of money because he came out of nowhere in january with a campaign that had very little money, very little staff. for rick santorum keep these points in mind. he's 53 years old. he does have a political future beyond what happens in this race, but the question is could he ever get this close to the republican presidential nomination? marco rubio, paul ryan, chris christie, all folks that could potentially run in the future. does rick santorum want to go up against any of them. this could be his only shot and that's why he's staying in. >> people are looking at the general direction and moving fast forward.
1:07 pm
we heard mitt romney earlier today before the newspaper editors and it seemed the strategy was to go after president obama's character. i want our viewers to listen to what he said. >> unlike president obama, you don't have to wait until after the election to find out what i believe or what my plans are. i have a pro-growth agenda that will get our economy back on track and get americans back to work. this administration thinks our economy is struggling because the stimulus was too small. the truth is we're struggling because our government has grown too big. >> when i covered obama, his biggest problem was introducing himself to the american people. who is this guy? what does he stand for? romney is now seeming to be implying that there's more to obama behind the facade here. why kind of this bogeyman approach, if you will? >> the smoke screen in many ways is what mitt romney is saying.
1:08 pm
president obama has fooled us all by putting this big smoke screen up and giving us promises about what he's going to do to fix the economy but his promises haven't come through. what's interesting is he made the speech, a very serious speech, before very influential journalists. he was a very successful businessman. he was doing a sales job and trying to sell these influn when shall journalists on the fact they need to start digging into president obama's policies, find out if his policies are true. >> how soon will we see mitt romney having meetings, if you will, whether they're private or public, with some of the folks who are hammering him. you still have gingrich, still have ron paul. they are still criticizing him, santorum as well. how does he get them on board? >> what's interesting is back in the louisiana primary, mitt romney did meet with newt gingrich at 6:00 in the morning in new orleans. that was a planned meeting. for romney he needs an intermediary to try to get to
1:09 pm
rick santorum and try to explain to rick santorum that he needs to get out of the race. in many ways mitt romney is playing it right. he's going in front of the camera saying it's not my call for someone to get out of the race but quietly these things are happening behind the scenes. for rick santorum, he needs to make the decision what is his career after this run right now or does he stay where he's at. >> john mccain was on cnn earlier today. he didn't think he played that much of a role, santorum. i want to listen to this. >> mitt romney has already pivoted to the general election campaign. whether rick santorum stays in or not, it's now basically irrelevant, and mitt has a lot of ground to make up. it's been a very nasty primary. his unfavorables are high. i'm confident that he will do very well, but the fact is that every day that goes by without being in the general election campaign mode is a day lost. he realizes that, and i think
1:10 pm
you're going to see -- already you're seeing the opening shots in a very spirited campaign. >> so how much work does he have to do here? what does he have to do to like kind of get rid of the arrows here, the bows that are still coming? >> first, we should say that's the nicest thing john mccain has ever said about rick santorum. these two men hate each other. that goes back to their time in the senate. mitt romney has not been able to raise money for the general election. e focused on the primary. barack obama has been able to raise a lot of money. this will be offset by super pacs that will weigh in on the election. in addition to that, suzanne, here is the big deal right now. it's also organizal strength across the country. right now the republican party has done a little bit of this through the republican national committee, but the bottom line is president obama has set up offices around the country in key battleground states. mitt romney has not been able to do that because he's so focused on winning the primary. >> as we have seen in 2008, they
1:11 pm
know how to do it, how to set up a cane from the ground up. it should be an epic battle. >> it will be a close race no matter what. >> thank you, mark. good to see you. here is a rundown of some of the stories we're covering over this hour. first, it's arraignment day for the man accused of monday's deadly campus shooting. we will talk about the charges and what might have driven him to kill. and another airline going to charge you for your carry-on bags. that's right. they say it's a sign of the times. later, do you know how many streets in america are named after martin luther king, jr.? he was shot to death 44 years ago today, and it might be surprising that there has never been a martin luther king street until now in a certain city. security. that's what matters to me... me? i've been paying in all these years... years washington's been talking at us, but they never really listen... listen...it's not just some line item on a budget; it's what i'll have to live on... i live on branson street, and i have something to say...

1:14 pm
the map accuse ed of killin seven people execution style at a college in california heads to court today. dan simon is at the courthouse in oakland. are we learning anything new in the investigation, including whether or not the police have actually found a weapon? >> reporter: well, that's what investigators have been focused with over the past day or so. they believe that the suspect, 43-year-old one goh ditched the weapon in an estuary. it's important to note that police say that he bought the gun legally. he actually went to a store in february, purchased that gun legally. they won't disclose what kind of weapon it was, but they believe it's a semiautomatic weapon, and again they're not saying if it was a .45 caliber. there's been a lot of questions about what type of weapon was used. at the courthouse behind me there will be an arraignment this afternoon. of course, one goh facing numerous charges.
1:15 pm
we should tell you more details are continuing to come out about what happened here. it happened about 10:30 a.m. local time on monday. allegedly he goes to the school looking for a female administrator. when he realizes she's not there, the rampage begins. he takes a receptionist hostage, goes into a classroom, lines people up and then begins shooting them one by one. the details obviously horrific. >> dan, they are. do we have any sense of what we might see in the courtroom? do we expect any of the victims' families might show up? >> reporter: we don't know if the families are going to show up. we know there was a memorial service last night to pay homage to the victims, to honor the victims. we're talking about six women and one man. their ages ranging from 21 to 54 years of age. despite the fact that they attended a christian college, they shared many different faiths. they came from all over the
1:16 pm
world. we know that, of course, the suspect will be here today and, as i said, facing numerous charges of murder, attempted murder, and kidnapping. >> i imagine they're drawing on their faith today. thank you, dan. appreciate it. cleanup and recovery are under way in north texas today. there is widespread damage there after a series of tornadoes swept through. we're going to have the latest, tell you where the storm system is heading next. h a standard power moonroof, your options are going to be limited. ♪ if you want standard leather-trimmed seats, you're going to have even fewer. ♪ and if you want standard keyless access, then your choice is obvious. the lexus es. it's complete luxury in a class full of compromises. see your lexus dealer. this is my grandson. and if it wasn't for a screening i got, i might have missed being here to meet him. the health care law lets those of us on medicare

1:18 pm
massive cleanup is under way this hour in parts of north texas. as many as 13 tornadoes slammed into the state yesterday. one storm sent tractor-trailers just swirling through the air. you can see those dramatic pictures. several people were hurt but
1:19 pm
remarkably no one was injured. miguel has more from arlington, texas. >> reporter: the mayor of dallas says his city dodged a bullet. >> i think we've counted three people taken to the hospital. i mean, we're looking at a miracle here. it really is something amazing. >> reporter: they credit their early morning system. >> our juoutdoor siren went off. we have a system where folks can be notified by text, e-mail, or phone. >> reporter: as north texas begins a massive cleanup, rescuers searched the rubble for anyone who might be trapped after tuesday's violent tornado outbreak. 14,000 pound tractor-trailers tossed like toys. homes left in tatters. >> unbelievable. unbelievable for it to come and do this much in such a short
1:20 pm
time. >> it's indescribable. >> reporter: hundreds of buildings sustained damage and tens of thousands of homes lost power. at dallas-ft. worth international airport, one of the world's busiest, hail pounded planes. more than 110 aircraft damaged. storm chaser jason mclaughlin captured this dramatic video of a tornado touching down in forney texas. >> i was thinking about the homes and the lives and everything people have built up until this time just destroyed in a couple of seconds. >> reporter: dallas-ft. worth is struggling to its feet today. they've had to cancel 200 flights and they are checking the planes that were on the ground when the hail storm blew through. it is expected and hoped that by the holiday weekend things will get back to normal there and people will be able to get on with their easter plans. miguel marquez, cnn, arlington,
1:21 pm
texas. more than 100 planes were damaged by hail as they sat stranded on the tarmac. cnn ireporters captured the sound. listen to this. i want to bring in chad myers. you were on the air yesterday when all of this happened out of dallas. explain to us what we can anticipate today or in the days ahead. >> today we're okay and tomorrow we're okay. this storm that the upper level storm that's coming out of the rockies kind of stalled. and when that happens you don't get the progression. we always say if it happened in texas yesterday, it's going to happen in arkansas today. that's not going to happen. there may be a couple storms today but nothing like we saw yesterday. by the way, that plane -- that audio was unbelievable. that is an aluminum skinned plane. they are going to have to probably take every little dent out of that plane or put new skins on that plane. that plane won't fly again for a long time. you want a very smooth surface, especially on your wings because
1:22 pm
that's what creates the lift, and you can't have dents like that. that was just -- >> they need to retire that plane. tell us a little more about yesterday. what are we learning that's new? >> the forney storm we had the reporter on, that town experienced 150-mile-per-hour ef-3 and now the storms in lancaster and probably even down towards arlington may have been ef-2s. but the pictures we had on the air, watch this video where tractor trailers, 14,000 pounds, these are seven tons get picked up and thrown like an h.o. scale train. >> when you talk about the scale, what does it mean in terms of like the speed of the wind and the power of the tornado? >> the speed and the number really relates to damage as well. an ef-0 will take some shingles off. e f-1 will take shingles, maybe
1:23 pm
a board. ef-2 may take off the boards off the roof but you will still see a full house. ef-3, now you start to see stuff like that where part of a house is even gone. that's 3r0b8ly more like a 2 you're seeing there, roof gone. when you get to the 4s, only a few walls are standing. and when you get to an ef-5 there are no walls and you can't recognize that a house ever stood there. all you will see is either the basement or the slab it was standing on. >> and it is unbelievable when you look at those pictures. the fact that you could have a roof that's just lifted up and you're looking literally inside somebody's closet or a bedroom or something like that. that is you said an ef-3. >> if you just get into the lowest level on storms like this, you will be fine. every storm yesterday was what we call survivable. there's not a storm yesterday, there was not a tornado that hit anywhere that took everything away from the house so that if you were in the right place you would still be alive. there were no storms that were so deadly, we call them unsurvivable.
1:24 pm
everything yesterday was survivable and everybody survived because they did the right thing. the people in texas know what to do. this is tornado alley for a reason. we are now just finally getting into tornado peak season for them there. may and june are the peak months, and it will be a bumpy right. >> all right. chad, thank you. so glad people are all alive in there. it's hard to believe when you see those kind of pictures. >> it's incredible people didn't get picked up in their vehicles the way those trailers were picked up. it's amazing there weren't a couple people picked up in an suv or minivan and thrown as well. so amazing. >> very lucky. thank you. you can find them all over the united states from chicago to l.a., dallas, milwaukee, in between. we're going to have a look at what life is like on martin luther king street for the man who wrote the book on it.

1:27 pm
here is a ruppdown of some of the stories we're working on. it's the an verse of martin
1:28 pm
luther king's death. watch out travelers, a bag that's going to cost you. we're not even talking about checking it. we're talking about carry-on. and later inside a weird looking car, a cool looking airplane. it's actually both. commuter's dream coming true. they make up more than 900 streets in 40 states. washington, d.c., to puerto rico. they all share one name in common, that is martin luther king. 345 my next guest spend two years traveling across the country learning the history of those streets. joining me is jonathan tylov. he's the washington, d.c. reporter "for the new orleans times picayune." love the book. great pictures, great quotes. i want our viewers to follow this quote here. you say map these streets and you map a nation within a nation, a place where white
1:29 pm
america seldom goes and black america can be itself. there is no other street like it. what did you find when you traveled? >> well, it was extraordinary because i went with this very brilliant photographer, michael falco, and it's two white guys showing up on these streets, and the welcome we got and the world that unfolded before us was amazing. these streets suffer a negative reputation and that's not what we found once you got beyond the surface, not what we found at all. you enter another place, and it was black america, and this maps it. >> let's talk a little bit about that. i know memphis is just joining this list. and tell us the significance of that because memphis was critical to king's life and legacy. >> it's interesting that there were -- when we wrote the book, there were a couple places, philadelphia at the time, l.a., and memphis that were sort of
1:30 pm
the most notable big city that is didn't have one. i think it's kind of fitting that memphis is this many years later getting to it because it kind of brings the story full circle. you can sort of trace the stations of the cross of king's life along these streets. he lived on sunset just off the mlk in atlanta. he led the marches from brown chapel on the martin luther king there. he was nearly killed ten years before ace his assassination on the mlk in harlem. now memphis where he was assassinated is naming him a street. i think it's what fitting to be one of the last major places to name a street for him. >> i want to start with this mural in chicago. and you talked a little bit about this. the role -- the significance of artwork on some of these streets. >> yeah. there's a lot of street art, a lot of murals, a lot of things
1:31 pm
that artists but also kids do. what was interesting about the -- on the 125th street, the mlk there, the only marker of any kind indicating that king was nearly killed on that street was a mural done by a muralist who did it on sort of the riot gates that were built after the king riots on the fronts of buildings that they draw down during the night, and it's gone now because they've replaced some gentrification there and it's remarkable to me that the only marker of something of such great historical importance was street art. but you find that all across these streets. there were some fantastic street murals on them lk there. >> you mention a barbershop in portland. >> geneva shear perfection. there are certain stereotypical things on these streets and one of them which is true are barbershops. what i found was it's not
1:32 pm
uncommon for african-americans traveling around the country when they go to a city they haven't been to to search out the martin luther king street and often times it's to get a haircut or to get something to eat or so see what the 345ihat street of the black ghucommunit looks like. you can foresee the day when maybe the martin luther king street will just be known as king. >> you did say that, you know, a lot of these streets, they don't have great reputations for the neighborhood, and comedian chris rock, he once joked if you're lost on mlk, first thing you should do is run, and people sometimes think, yeah, this is kind of ironic, right? somebody who supports peace and some of these neighborhoods, did you find that to be true? >> except i sort of -- maybe i'm defensive about the streets but i take exception what's the point of naming a street. if martin luther king were to
1:33 pm
come back today and say what's happened since i have been gone, we have an african-american president in the white house, he'd say great but what's happened to the people i care about. let's go to the streets that bear his name. he would still see the poverty and the unemployment and the crime, and it's remarkable to me that this grassroots movement created these streets that map this nation and that still remind us of the truth about what hasn't happened in america, and i think that's a much more fitting memorial than a facade of a nice street that looks nice but doesn't tell you anything about what's really going on. >> that's a good point. thank you. really appreciate it. it's a fascinating book and just a look at how many places bear his name, now memphis as well, and the importance of it and those communities, what you found there. jonathan, thank you. appreciate it. >> thank you. the controversy for burger king now has nothing to do with food. hear why the burger chain is pulling an ad featuring an r&b

1:38 pm
stereotype by peddling chicken but mary is not the only one doing these commercials. salma hayek, david beckham, jay leno. they're all futured. steven tyler is expected to do a spot, too. the ad has been pulled. bugg burger king says this is over copyright issues. we have reached out to burger king for more information about what happened. they haven't given us a statement yet. we also reached out to mary j. blige. if it was only being marketed her commercials in urban areas, then maybe they have a beef, but i have seen these other -- i have seen them everywhere. so i don't know what the fuss is about. >> i love mary j. blige. i love fried chicken. sarah palin, she was the morning host and her stint is over now, but jon stewart, he had something to say about it.
1:39 pm
let's take a listen. >> former alaska governor was actually quite good and likable in this setting. >> my issue was not with how i viewed governor palin as co-host of the "today" show. it was how governor palin seemed to view it. >> we read a tweet that said going to go rogue and intifiltre some turf. what exactly does that mean? >> what do you think it means? >> infiltrating the "today" show. i think it means you're cynically exploiting a manufactured notion of yourself as a crusader against a monolithic exclusionary activist liberal media while actually enjoying a mutually symbiotic beneficial relationship with them. >> tell us how you really feel. first of all, you got to love jon stewart because he makes his point and he makes you laugh while he's making it. but, you know, she was talking about infiltrating enemy lines, suzanne. you know the distance between the fox news building and the
1:40 pm
"today" show building in new york is only about a block and jon also made that point on "the daily show." sarah palin got this opportunity because she brings in an audien audience. that's what this is all about. let me just say and i'm going to be clear about this, i thought she was very, very good. >> and they won, did they not win? did they win the ratings war? >> yeah, they did. you know, there's this crazy war going on in the mornings. we all know how the ratings game goes. gma is really inching up on "today." at one point they were like 140,000 viewers short of winning. yesterday that discrepancy was about 300,000 or 400,000. sarah held that audience and she billed a little bit. >> i'm still plugging our own soledad o'brien, carol costello. i'm watching them. >> you and me both, baby. >> good to see you. for all the latest entertainment news from hollywood and beyond, watch "showbiz tonight" 11:00 eastern on hln. there is new meaning to the

from something other than ticket sales or food and drinks. look at where airlines get their revenue. spirit, for example, made one-third of its money from extras. the major airlines make money this way, too, from reservation change fees and checked bags. could the big guys charge for carry-ons? well, not yet they say. but profitable ideas do tend to catch on. >> unfortunately, it seems like every time an airline adds a new fee all of the others hop on board and do so, too, because the revenues are extraordinary. in 2011 the airlines reportedly made more than $5 billion in ancillary fees. >> reporter: us airways, american airlines, and southwest said they have no plans to charge for carry-on fees. delta said it wouldn't comment on future fares or fees. lizzy o'leary, cnn, washington. flight attendants go above
