7:15 am
be an early high temperature, so then we are back in the seasonal 40's by friday and saturday, last weekend of february, in fact, once a year, once every four years leap day, is on monday and we should be back in the 50's by then, bob kelly, what do you got. >> got to love it. 7:15. good tuesday morning everybody. no rain here along 422 just yet but as you mentioned it is on the way creeping its way up in our viewing area here. eastbound lanes of 422 are already heavy from troop inner toward king of prussia, northeast philadelphia, southbound i-95 heavy from cot the man in through girard through that construction zone and then 295 heading southbound starting to see a little drizzle as you work your way down toward the delaware memorial bridge and then up and over delaware memorial and down in towards delaware again roads are becoming wet. look out for a new traffic pattern here a along 42 in both directions. it is coming and going mainly for morning rush hour it is more so folks coming in toward philadelphia, there is a new
7:16 am

7:18 am
where he has blossomed. >> ever since i got here in fill i have had two best seasons in my life personally. i have been the healthiest i have been in my career and it is really starting to, my career is really starting to take off. >> so the deal worth about 40 million-dollar. >> remember i told you before, his story, how basically, a couple years ago when he was playing for a different team, mike. he said he was almost cut. he said i will focus, stay dedicated. he made the pro bowl. the it shows the amount of progress he has had. >> i was just told that the bonus, signing bonus, that is where they give you the chunk of change. >> thanks for signing. >> 21 million. >> really. >> yes good how about that. >> everyone keeps talking about when we played panthers, the interception he got, that was a amazing. we get why philly is trying to keep him.

>> he won't to have sell bow ties any more. >> i'm sure, rock avenue bow ties. i'm sure he will still sell them. when you go by the apple store late this afternoon you will sees a bunch of people would i think. are they protesting on apple's side or fbi's side steve keeley. >> reporter: i don't know, mike. the latest pew poll has 51 percent saying that they support the fbi's effort against april a he will in this fight. that would tell you 49 percent on apple's side. the it looks evenly divided. you see the emblem of apple there on the store there in marlton on the promenade which was closest storm where we were at the that fire down in magnolia. while the government wants to take a bigger bite out of apple and they want some information that apple does not want to give. protests are planned at apple's headquarters in san francisco and here on the east coast outside the fbi headquarters by a group supporting apple. so while this poll says everybody is evenly divided on
7:20 am
this, well, what happened is the fbi wants to unlock the iphone own by two terrorist couple in the san bernardino shooting. april he'll s. fbi wants to necessity if there is anything in that e-mail about any other possible planned terror attacks here in the u.s. but apple's boss, says this is more about then just a single phone or a single investigation. at stake he says the data, security of hundreds of millions of law abiding people and setting a a very dangerous precedent threatening everybody's civil liberties. should government be allowed to order us, he asked an employee memo to create other capabilities for surveillance purposes, recording conversations, or locations tracking. the fbi head james comby put it the very clearly. he said this is a very big tension between two things we all love in this country, safety and privacy.
7:21 am
is what more important security and privacy? that is the debate. it is likely going to be settled in court. even ted olson, lawyer for apple whose wife died in the pentagon plane crash on 9/11, he is now on apple's side on this. he knows about losing somebody to terrorism. he lost his wife. but he says this is a a clear case of privacy and he doesn't think that the government should aloud to get into that encryption of the iphone at all because he says it will just set a dangerous precedent. every time the government needs something they will ask for everybody's iphone information and he says there is the dangerous precedent right there. we will see. >> we shall see. >> country split like you said right down the middle on that. >> tough debate. >> sure is. >> 7:00 to second one. boy, scary trip home and a warning police want to you hear that is why they are showing up in our studio today. what they say happened to one man after returning from a business trip and why they want you to be on high alert right now. and replacing your pass word with your face.

8:05 am
a picket of the oil, soaked cleaning rags left by a contractor apparently claused that fire and fighting the flames was hampered by a complete failure of the building's electrical system and the water was in the deployed. there wasn't enough water pressure, the building was located, 15th street right across from city hall, i know a lot of you remember this. the it was torn down in 1991, replaced with an apartment building. there is also now a memorial dedicated to the fallen fire fighters, right there. >> alex? >> well, 8:05. shocking new report that came out yesterday that details hollywood's diversity problem. this just comes five days before the oscars. and we all know controversies already cast a shadow over the academy. oscar so white has been trending for the second year in a row. as you can see there are no nominees of color in any major acting categories. a report, has add sod fuel to the fire that was done by university of southern california and it looks at
8:06 am
over 100 movies and 300 broadcast table and digital series and found out that a third of speaking characters were women, less than 30 percent for minority groups and 2 percent were lesbian, gay, by sexual or transgender. about half of the time, and shows in the study lack asian characters and 20 percent had no african-american characters. so joining us now we have radio personality celebrity life coach dianne williams and ernest, and, we have philadelphia's association of black journalist president cherri gregg. thanks for being here this afternoon. >> good morning. >> first i want to ask were you surprised at all by this study that came out, first, we will start with you. >> this is a ongoing problem that reflects diversity issues across the board not just in hollywood. so, i have seen those numbers in other reports, the dj a, director guild, association, and did a similar report, and,
8:07 am
and, and, i was in, lesbian, latino, asian, african women. >> you have been monitoring this how this has come to this. it happened last year. here we are again. >> exactly. i'm in the surprised at all by the numbers. when you look at the type of rolls and story lines that are also in hollywood, look at the type of the character you see straight characters playing transgender rolls or lgbt rolls rather than hiring them. you you are seeing characters play black characters, white actors playing black charles tears and that is what led to, doing talking about monitoring hollywood and looking at lack of diversity. >> we will talk about that event in a little bit that happens this week. cherri write surprised. >> i was not surprised. i have been a movie buff my entire life a lot of times you don't see people look like me in those films. but this is in the surprising, at all, and anytime, you try to put a black actor in a
8:08 am
traditional white role, there is outrage. but, we have the new guides of egypt coming out right now, and white actors are playing, egyptians. so this is something that has been going on, for many, many years. >> now once this start trending oscars so white a lot of people saying let's change voting, lets change who is making votes and making a decision. problem is you cannot nominate someone if you are not included in some of the rolls. >> very difficult to get into the unions in hollywood. so the problem, starts with the studios, as well. the casting directors, hiring people. the other directors hiring people in key rolls. so they can get into the unions so they can get in the academy to be able to vote. it has been restrictive, prohibitive for a long time. so you don't have people in position how will they vote? so what is happening, it is statistics that show the a academy voting members are older, white males.
8:09 am
>> older white males. >> and ernest, someone asked you, even in the report, author of the report said this is not a diversity problem, this is an inclusion crisis, would you agree with that. >> i don't agree with that. i have done act aing for theater rolls when iowas in high school and what i have noticed it is about equity and access. there are people basically go out of their way to discriminate, their different stereotypes. they go for certain rolls because they assume certain box office success and demographics based on race. it is in the so much about this idea of inclusion. i think everybody says they are for inclusion and then what happens when casting directors make choices of who they want to hire they think of race as a selling point. when someone like creed does really well with the black lead actor, it kind of shatters, that presumptions early on. >> on tv we are seeing shows, sandra rhymes, yes. >> yes, exactly. >> so cherri, what would you suggest, how do we fix this?
8:10 am
what is way to move for. when it comes to next year we will see this again. they have put together the movies for 2017. >> the next film will be coming out and i'm seeing that. >> yes. >> there are two others but not very much. a a lot of them do not fit in the category where you have diverse actors but i think awareness is key. the think the fact that we're talking about this, i think the fact that people can use their dollars when they choose to buy a ticket to see a movie that they support movies that have actors and actresses and writers of color, that they also choose not to support those movies that specifically could have had a actors or actresses of color and do not. >> i'm with cherri. economic boycott puts your dollars where your feelings are, if you do not like it, then just protest with your money. >> hate to say but it is a conversation that must continue, this thursday at 7:00 p.m., at temple monitoring hollywood and we
8:11 am
will talk about all this oscars so white ernestoens is leading that. thanks very much. we will move forward at 8:11. mike, over to you. >> great discussion, nicely done. just fresco it, get used to the term. do you want to be part of the fox 29 team and get paid. there is a new you way to capture news, on the go, the app, you will want to down load today. thees from co. es from co.
