Bill Clinton: Hillary is "not out of touch"

Former President Bill Clinton defended his wife Hillary against accusations she's out of touch, after her comments that the family was "dead broke" when they left the White House in 2001.

In an interview with NBC's David Gregory as part of the Clinton Global Initiative America meeting in Denver, Bill Clinton pushed back against calls that Hillary doesn't understand the average American, noting that she has worked "all her life" on "things that were good for ordinary people."

"It is factually true that we were several million dollars in debt," Clinton said with a smiling Hillary and Chelsea Clinton watching on. "Everyone now assumes that what happened in the intervening years was automatic. I am shocked that it happened. I am shocked that people still want me to come give talks. I am grateful."

But is the former president creating a bigger problem?

Report: MH370 radar data may have been wrong

It's been nearly four months since Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 disappeared, and now, Australia is about to start hunting for the missing jet in a whole new search area.

There are also new reports that suggest officials relied on faulty radar data. Officials had said Malaysian radar showed the missing plane dramatically changed altitudes, flying as high as 45,000 feet and dipping as low as 4,000 feet.

That information is apparently dead wrong.

According to the New York Times, the plane remained in controlled flight for hours after it lost contact.
