A COUPLE OFFICERS RUSHING DOWNTHE STREETS TOWARD THOSE

FLASHING LIGHTS.

YOU SEE SOME TACTICAL VEHICLESMOVING AROUND HERE.

WE SAW AT LEAST FOUR SWAT TEAMMEMBERS WITH HELMETS ON WHAT

APPEARED TO BE NIGHT VISIONGOGGLES, WE SEE SOME SQUAD CARS

AROUND HERE.

THIS APPARENTLY IS SOME KIND OFA RESCUE CHOPPER AND WE'VE SEEN

KIND OF A RESCUE BASKET ORSOMETHING.

THAT'S ABOUT AS LOW AS WE'VESEEN HIM GO.

SO THAT IS KIND OF ANINTERESTING DEVELOPMENT.

>> Jon: NO, NO THAT'S NOT ANINTERESTING DEVELOPMENT.

THOSE ARE NOT INTERESTINGDEVELOPMENTS.

YOU'RE JUST STANDINGIN FRONT OF A

CAMERA NAMING [BLEEP] YOU SEE.

IT'S NOT ANYTHING.

[CHEERS AND APPLAUSE]>> IT'S LIKE WALKING DOWN THE

STREET WITH A FIVE-YEAR-OLD.

[LAUGHTER]POLICE CAR.

FIRE HYDRANT.

FOR SOME REASON CNN THOUGHT TOINCLUDE THEIR SEARCH FOR EVEN

THE MOST BANAL OF BACKGROUNDNFACTS.

>> PAUL, ARE YOU ON THE LINE.

BUILDING.

HOW LARGE IS THIS BUILDING,BARBARA?

BARBARA'S ON THE PHONE WITH HERSOURCES GATHERING MORE

AND THEN INEVITABLY --BLITZER.

>> THE FACT, TOM, THAT THISINDIVIDUAL IS

DESCRIBED AS SOMEONE DRESSED INA BLACK TOP,

BLACK JEANS WHAT DOES THAT SAYIF ANYTHING ABOUT A POSSIBLE

MOTIVE OR WHATEVER.

CAN WE BEGIN TO DRAW ANY INITIALCONCLUSION?

[LAUGHTER]>> WHAT DOES THE BLACK TOP AND

BLACK JEANS SAY ABOUT POSSIBLEMOTIVE.

I DON'T KNOW, WHY DON'T YOU ASKYOUR BEST COLLEAGUE.

[CROWD CHEERING]>> PERHAPS THE WORST PART OF THE

BLITZER REPORTAGE BESIDESUSING PHRASES LIKE.

CAN WE BEGIN TO DRAW INITIALCONCLUSIONS.

THAT'S A SEMANTIC WORKAROUNDFOR SAYING MAKE [BLEEP] UP.

I'M ON UNTIL 4:00.

CNN'S BRASH ON AIRACKNOWLEDGMENT THEY SHOULD NOT

BE DOING THIS AT ALL.

>> WHAT DOES THAT SAY IFANYTHING ABOUT A POSSIBLE MOTIVE

OR WHATEVER.

CAN WE BEGIN TO DRAW ANY INITIALCONCLUSIONS.

I WANT TO ALERT OUR VIEWERSSOMETIMES THESE INITIAL

CONCLUSIONS CAN OBVIOUSLY BEVERY VERY WRONG.

>> Jon: YES, YES, CORRECT.

THEY CAN BE VERY VERY WRONG.

SO DON'T SAY THEM OUT LOUD.

IF IT'S AN URGENT SIDE OF YOUTHAT YOU HAVE TO GET OUT, HAVE A

SPECULATION JAR.

[LAUGHTER][BLEEP] OH MY GOD WE'RE ALL

GOING TO DIE.

[CROWD CHEERING]>> Jon: SOMEONE KEEPS WEED IN

THIS.

WHO KEEPS WEED IN THIS.

SOMEBODY KEEPS WEED IN THIS.

MOTHER [BLEEP] REALLY.

[APPLAUSE]>> Jon: SPECULATION IS LIKE A

COMPULSION.

>> IF THERE ARE THREE SHOOTERS,WOLF,

IF THAT PROVES TO BE CORRECTIT'S GOING TO BE THE MOSTECT

SIGNIFICANT FACT.

S>> THAT'S A STARTLING PIECE OFINFORMATION,

IF THAT TURNS OUT TO BEACCURATE.

>> THIS PIECE OF INFORMATION HEBELIEVES TO BE ACCURATE HE'S

BEEN GIVEN BUT TURNS OUT TO BEINACCURATE.

>> IN A SITUATION LIKE THIS THEINFORMATION THAT IS FLOWING SO

QUICKLY IS OFTEN WRONG.

AND YOU NOW HAVE SOMEINFORMATION FOR US.

[LAUGHTER]>> I KNOW YOU THINK SAYING THIS

COULD ALL BE WRONG MAKES ITOK TO SAY IT. BUT IT DOESN'T

MAKE IT OKAY.

NO ONE ELSE IN THE WORLD ISALLOWED TO OPERATE THAT WAY.

HELLO I'M YOUR DOCTOR YOU HAVECANCER.

OF COURSE.

OBVIOUSLY A LOT OF MY INITIALDIAGNOSIS ARE VERY VERY WRONG.

THAT BEING SAID, THAT BEING SAIDYOU HAVE CANCER.

UNLESS YOU DON'T.

THESE TEST RESULTS ARE JUSTCOMING IN HERE SO FAST AND

FURIOUS AND I CAN'T WAIT.

I'LL KNOW FOR SURE IN AN HOUR IFYOU HAVE CANCER OR NOT BUT

[BLEEP] YOU HAVE CANCER, I JUSTGOT TO GET IT OUT.

AND THAT'S WHEN I REALIZED,THAT'S WHEN I REALIZED ALL OF

YESTERDAY'S CONFUSION IN THEREPORTING IT'S NOT A MISTAKE

BECAUSE SADLY THE ONE THING INTHIS COUNTRY, THEY SHOULD HAVE

GREAT PRACTICE IN COVERING ARETHESE HORRIFIC SHOOTING

TRAGEDIES.

AND THERE ARE A TON OF REALLYSMART PEOPLE AND GOOD

JOURNALISTS WHO WORK OVER ATCNN.

THIS IS ONLY FIVE MONTHS AFTERTTHE CRITICISM OF CNN'S CHAOTIC

BOSTON TERRORISM COVERAGE

INCLUDING WHEN THEYANNOUNCED ON AIR AN ARRESTTHAT HAD NOT HAPPENED.

SO MY FINAL NOT INITIALCONCLUSION IS, THIS IS

DELIBERATE.

THE CHAOS, THE VOMIT ON TO THESCREEN, THE VERY THING WE

THOUGHT NEWS ORGANIZATIONS WERECREATED TO CLARIFY IS THE

FEATURE, NOT A BUG.

HERE'S CNN'S BOSS DESCRIBING THELESSON THEY LEARNED FROM THE

BOSTON COVERAGE.

>> WE MADE THAT MISTAKE FROMTHE BOSTON COVERAGE TWO DAYS

LATER AS THE DRAMA UNFOLDEDIN BOSTON WE HAD OUR BIGGEST

AUDIENCE IN TEN YEARS.

DO YOU KNOW WHO GOT IT,UNDERSTOOD WE MADE A MISTAKE AND

ACKNOWLEDGED IT?

THE AUDIENCE.

>> OH MY GOD.

THE LESSON THEY TAKE IS ITDOESN'T MATTER HOW MUCH THEY

BETRAY OUR TRUST.

WE'LL KEEP COMING BACK.

WE'RE IN AN ABUSIVERELATIONSHIP WITH CNN.

IT'S TIME WE KICKED THOSEBASTARDS TO THE CURB BECAUSE WE

HAVE TO REMEMBER THIS NETWORKWAS CREATED BY TED TURNER, NOT

IKE TURNER.

EVERYTHING THAT WE ARE SEEINGHAPPEN AT CNN IS A STORY THAT

REQUIRES FULL TEAM COVERAGE FORTHE BEST [BLEEP] NEWS TEAM

ON THE PLANET.

WE'VE GOT SAMANTHA BEE, JASONJONES, JOHN OLIVER, AASIF MANDVI

>> OK JEFF IS NOT AVAILABLE.

I'M GOING TO TAKE A STAB AT THISMYSELF.

THAT IS JUST AN ESTIMATE.

OBVIOUSLY THAT COULD BE VERYVERY WRONG BUT THE SITUATION

HERE ON THE STREET IS FLUID>> JOHN I HAVE EXCLUSIVE

INFORMATION ABOUT THE HEIGHT OFTHIS BUILDING.

I'M WALKING UP TO IT RIGHT NOW.

I'M GOING TO SAY IT IS FOURSTORIES TALL, I'M COUNTING

FOUR STORIES.

>> THAT'S A DIFFERENT BUILDING.

ARE THE LETTERS CNN ANYWHERE ONTHAT BUILDING.

>> NO, NOT AT ALL.

THIS COULD BE THE WRONGBUILDING.

IT IS FAR TOO EARLY TOSPECULATE.

WHAT WE KNOW ABOUT THE RIGHTNESSOR WRONGNESS OF THIS BUILDING IS

IT'S CHANGING ALL THE TIME.

>> JON, JON POTENTIALLY BREAKINGNEWS DOWN HERE STREETSIDE.

WE'RE SEEING A YELLOW CAR, WE'RESEEING A GRAY CAR, WE'RE SEEING

A BICYCLE CAR ALL HEADED IN THESAME DIRECTION.

WE DON'T KNOW WHERE THEY'REGOING, THEY COULD BE FLEEING

POSSIBLY A FIRE, MAYBE ALEEINGGODZILLA.

WE CAN'T CONFIRMANYTHING AT IN TIME.

VOCAL CHORDS RESULTING IN SOUND.

STILL OCCURRING BUT IT APPEARSTHAT SOME OF THE AIR IS BEING

PUSHED THROUGH THE TRACHEA HASREVERSED COURSE AND MADE A BREAK

THROUGH THEDUODENUM, JEJUNUM AND ILEUM.

>> BUT IT'S A TOUGH PLACE AS ANACTOR.

THERE MUST BE SOME RESIDUAL OFTHIS THAT STAYS WITH YOU, NO,

WHEN YOU DO A ROLE LIKE THIS, AFILM LIKE THIS.

>> THERE IS BUT I THINK THERE'SA PERVERSITY TO

BEING AN ACTORTHAT PARTICULARLY IN MY CASE,

FASCINATED WITH THESE WORLDS.

IN A WORLD LIKE THIS EVEN THOUGHIT IS FILLED WITH A LOT OF

DARKNESS.

>> Jon: DARK STORY, KIDNAP,TORTURE.

>> I WAS REALLY INTERESTED IN ANIDEA OF SOMEONE THAT WAS A HERO

THAT WASN'T IN THE LIKELYPLACE YOU EXPECT THEM TO BE.

THERE'S A LOT SAID ABOUT THEKIDNAPPING AND THE STORY BUT

WHAT IT'S REALLY ABOUT IS WHATDOES IT TAKE TO BE A FATHER,

WHAT DOES IT TAKE TO BE A MAN,WHAT DOES IT TAKE TO DO YOUR JOB

THE BEST POSSIBLE WAY.

>> Jon: TRAVEL IN THAT WORLDAND TRY AND CLEAN IT UP TO SOME

EXTENT, TRY TO BE THE PERSONTHAT YOU KNOW, HELPS ESTABLISH

THAT.

>> BUT THINGS ARE GOODOTHERWISE.

>> EVERYTHING IS GREAT, YES.

>> SOMEONE WAS ASKING ME EARLIERIN THE AUDIENCE ABOUT BATMAN.

WOULD YOU DO, BECAUSE THEY'RELIKE WHAT DO YOU THINK OF BEN

AFFLECK.

I THINK HE WILL DO GREAT ASBATMAN.

I'M NOT BOTHERED BY CASTINGCHOICES.

>> THAT'S GOOD.

>> YEAH.

[LAUGHTER]WHY DO YOU THINK THAT'S SUCH A

HULLABALOO. BECAUSEIT'S A MYTHIC CHARACTER. DO YOU

REALLY WANT ME TO GO INTO THIS?

>> BECAUSE EVERYBODY HAS THEIRIDEAS AND THEY'RE ENTITLED TO IT

AND IT'S IMPORTANT FOR EVERYBODYTO EXPRESS IT AND WE LIVE IN

AMERICA WHERE THAT SHOULD BEAMERIDONE AND IT'S A GREATBE

OPPORTUNITY FOR AN ACTORAND WHEN YOU GET TO

PLAY THAT ROLE IT'SSUPER BAD [BLEEP] AND ITHINK HE'S GOING TO BE

SUPER BAD [BLEEP] IN IT.

>> Jon: AS LONG AS BATMANSTILL EXISTS IN THE COMIC BOOKS.

>> YES.

>> AS LONG AS THEY'RE NOT LIKEOH AND NOW BEN AFFLECK IS BATMAN

IN ALL OF YOUR COMIC BOOKS.

[LAUGHTER]WHY DOES ANYONE GIVE A [BLEEP]

IT'S A MOVIE.

IT BOGGLES MY MIND.

HOW CAN DANNY DEVITO BE THEPENGUIN.

WHO [BLEEP] KNOWS.

THE PENGUIN'S NOT A PERSON.

>> I'M SPEECHLESS.

I MEAN CASTING IS FOREVER A PARTOF MY LIFE, FROM THE VERY

BEGINNING OF MY CAREER.

WHEN I'M CAST IN A ROLE I'M JUSTPLAIN EXCITED.

MOST OF THE TIME IT REALLYDOESN'T MATTER WHAT, YOU KNOW,

YOU GET YOUR JOB AND YOU TRY ANDYGET ANOTHER ONE AND I THINK ASD

ANACTOR REGARDLESS HOW MUCH

SUCCESS SOMEBODY'S HAD EVENSOMEBODY LIKE MR. AFFLECK.

CAN'T YOU CALL HIM BEN?

THERE'S A HOLLYWOOD HIERARCHY.

>> Jon: OH REALLY.

>>LORD AFFLECK, I SALUTE YOU,SIR.

IS IT WEIRD FOR AN ACTOR, I WASWONDERING ABOUT

THIS WITH THE PEOPLE THATWERE KIND ENOUGH TO BE

IN THE FILM THAT I WASDOING SO THEY JUSTLEAVE AND THEY HAVE NO

IDEA WHAT'S HAPPENING NOW INTHAT LITTLE DARK ROOM WHERE I

COULD BE JUST RUININGEVERYTHING.

IS THAT, DOES THAT RUN THROUGHEVERYBODY'S HEAD?

>> YES.

THERE'S THIS STRANGE MOMENT ASAN ACTOR WHERE YOU THINK LIKE OH

I'M CONTROLLING ALL OF THIS ANDTHIS ONE TAKE.

AND IT'S LIKE IN THE BACK,BEHIND

THE CAMERA EVERYBODY'S GOINGLIKE OH HE THINKS HE'S

CONTROLLING IT.

AND I THINK IT'S ACTUALLY, IT'SA GREAT THING BECAUSE YOU KNOW,

THE MOVIE I DID, THIS IS WHERE IWORKED WITH THE DIRECTOR TWICE

IN A ROW.

WHAT I COULD SEE IS WHEN YOUMAKE A RELATIONSHIP IT'S ALL

ABOUT RELATIONSHIPS AND YOU HAVETO TRUST YOUR DIRECTOR.

YOU GIVE THEM EVERYTHING, YOUTHROW IT ALL OUT THERE AND THEY

CUT IT TOGETHER AND I THINK IT'SSORT OF IMPOSSIBLE NOT TO TRUST

SOMEONE LIKE YOU.

[LAUGHTER]>> Jon: HA HA.

HERE'S THE NICE THING ABOUT ME.

I'M ONLY DOING ONE MOVIE I CANDO WHATEVER I WANT.

>> I'M SO EXCITED FOR YOURMOVIE.

>> Jon: THE GUY BACK THEREDOING IT IS A MAESTRO. HE'S

DOING AN INCREDIBLE JOB.

PRISONERS, IT'S IN THE THEATERSON FRIDAY. JAKE GYLLENHAAL.

ON HIM TODAY.
