Tim Howard talks to Chris Cuomo about his historic Wold Cup game

This morning on "New Day," CNN's Chris Cuomo talked to USA goalie Tim Howard about his incredible performance in the World Cup. Howard told Cuomo he felt "in rhythm" while making his record-breaking saves.

“The game has slowed down for me. I’m seeing things much earlier, my reactions have been very quick,” he said.

When asked about what's next for the soccer star, Howard said he plans to go home and relax.

He'll "hang out with the kids, get some more tattoos, you know just be me."

Philip Seymour Hoffman friend speaks in exclusive CNN interview

In an exclusive interview on New Day, the friend who found actor Philip Seymour Hoffman dead of a drug overdose, David Bar Katz, told CNN’s Chris Cuomo that media portrayals have painted an inaccurate picture of the Oscar winner’s death.  He told Cuomo, his friend was not in a destructive death-spiral the night he died. 

After the actor’s death, the National Enquirer published a false interview with Katz and claimed that the two men were lovers.  Katz sued the publication which agreed to a settlement that will be used to for an award to help playwrights.  "I always knew they made stuff up, but I never knew they made up even having an interview with someone that they never had, and then the degree of seeing how everyone picks it up and, as you just said, treats it like news," Katz told Cuomo. "I was really stunned by that." FULL POST

NJ State Senator calls for investigation of Christie administration for possible "criminal acts"

In an interview with CNN’s New Day, NJ State Senator Ray Lesniak said that he will call for a federal investigation into Gov. Chris Christie’s administration over allegations that top Christie appointees orchestrated traffic jams on the country’s busiest bridge last year as part of a political vendetta against the city’s mayor.  Sen. Lesniak said “There's certainly reasonable suspicion that criminal acts have been involved here. Not only abuse of governmental power for political purposes, but we have reckless endangerment of people's lives and possibly criminally negligent homicide.  Those investigations have to be pursued by the authorities of the U.S. attorney’s office.”

In an exclusive interview with Chris Cuomo of CNN's "New Day," basketball star Dennis Rodman defended his controversial visit to North Korea with a team of former NBA players, saying it was a "great idea for the world."  The trip takes place just weeks after North Korea shocked the world by announcing the purge and execution of Kim Jong-Un’s once-powerful uncle. There are also concerns for the welfare of U.S. citizen Kenneth Bae, who has been detained for more than a year for unknown crimes.

Rodman and other former NBA players are due to take part in a controversial basketball game on the birthday of Kim Jong-Un.  Referring to Kim Jong-Un, Rodman said, "I love my friend. This is my friend." He also pointed out that Kim is only 31 years old. FULL POST
