>> and i can't believe how easily baited the clinton campaign was. >> reporter: reena, both candidates took a break from debate preparations to meet with israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu during his visit to new york. >> paula reid with our debate preview. thanks, paula. well, now with a closer look at our new cbs news/battleground tracker poll here's elections director anthony salvanto in washington. >> the big picture, reena, is that clinton's once big lead has become a narrower lead nationally and in some key states heading into the debate. the reason we see echoes, some of wha we've already seen in recent weeks, and that is lower excitement among her voters. but the polling shows the balance that donald trump has to strike too. like clinton he's described by many voters as risky, but he is also seen as able to bring the change that so many voters want. rena?
in syria there's little hope that a broken cease-fire will be revived. since late last week russian and syrian warplanes and troops have been hammering syria's largest city, aleppo. elizabeth palmer was in aleppo when the attacks resumed. >> reporter: at the start of the week we were watching a student rt war reignited. those are shells falling on rebel-held aleppo, just after the syrian army declared the cease-fire was over. soon the warplanes were up, too,
the number of dead and wounded, which had fallen to almost zero, rocketed up. the front line of this civil war runs right through the center of aleppo. armed opposition fighters control this side, and syrian regime forces and their allies are here. 13-year-old aya lives on the very edge of the government side. this curtain here, what's that for? >> translator: snipers. >> reporter: the snipers, just a few hundred yards away, are opposition fighters who over the past four years have aimed their weapons at syrian army positions deep in this neighborhood. did you lose some friends in this war? "yes, i've lost many," she says. "some were killed by mortars or snipers. some just left the country." many of those who didn't make a run for it are now living in the ruins of war in desperate need. the cease-fire was supposed to let humanitarian aid reach them. but the main delivery route into aleppo has been a battleground for months. to let the aid flow all sides, including the syrian army, were supposed to pull back. and it never did.
in a war this savage it's hard to sort fact from fiction. and it got even harder this week when a u.s. airstrike hit syrian soldiers. by mistake, said the pentagon. a few days later a red crescent aid convoy was attacked. >> you see? pampers as aid from the u.n. >> reporter: the u.s. says early indications showed the russians were responsible, something moscow furiously denied. but public opinion in this country is shaped by syrian state media. and the villain on its airwaves is always the united states. syrians also believe that america can make a big difference to the outcome of this war. and that the u.s. has a responsibility to use its diplomatic muscle and its power to help bring peace. elizabeth palmer, cbs news,

united states. it will be holiday for russia. >> reporter: the ultra nationalist leader is one of trump's most vocal supporters in russia. even his opinion of hillary clinton matches the more radical fringe of trump supporters. >> madam clinton has all signs of parkinson illness. parkinson. it's a very bad illness. >> reporter: trump has lavished praise on the russian leader and said he'd cut back on u.s. involvement in nato. putin has made plain he'd prefer a trwh american election is more than just talk. russia is accused of hacking the democratic party's server. >> are you going to be watching the presidential debate next week? >> of course. >> reporter: if you want to know what putin is thinking, you talk to this man. sergei markov. his political think tank has a direct line to the kremlin, which sort of denies the hacking allegations. >> the word of central
zero. nothing. they lied. just forget about them. >> reporter: putin has said hacking the dnc was a good thing. >> it appears that he's condoning the hacking. >> yeah. it's exactly -- i agree. hackers attacks about politicians, very good. >> what if his own united russia party had been hacked into? how would he react then? >> negatively. because it's his party. >> reporter: during the elections here opponents of appearing on state-controlled television. but images of donald trump and the american elections have been getting plenty of air time. charlie d'agata, cbs news, moscow. up next, a world land speed

22 years on sunday morning. i have to ask, what are you >> i'll probably be writing a radio show for monday. >> well, we'll still see him on the radio, as he says. charles osgood received a warm and a wonderful send-off this morning as he put a bowtie on his run as host of "cbs sunday morning." charlie also passed the torch to his successor. >> "sunday morning" has been

finally tonight, in 1950 around the time charles osgood started classes at fordham university in the bronx a recent fordham graduate named vin scully was starting his broadcasting career with the brooklyn dodgers. 67 years later scully is signing off as the los angeles dodgers' beloved announcer. >> it's time for dodger baseball. >> reporter: vin scully's voice is the soundtrack of so many historic moments. he was there in 1974 when hank aaron broke babe ruth's home run record. >> a black man is getting a standing ovation in the deep south. >> reporter: he painted a picture of the game the way shakespeare would right a play. his 1988 world series kirk
going on. and then out of the corner of my eye i said -- >> and look who's coming up. >> and here he comes, hobbling. >> he is gone! in a year that has been so improbable, the impossible has happened. >> reporter: it was the way he guided listeners through each game that won over generations of baseball fans. for at least nine innings his words transported them from their homes and cars into the dugout or onto the pitcher's mound. for the past 67 years, from brooklyn to los angeles. >> go dodgers. >> reporter: this weekend fans filed into dodger stadium to honor him. angel rodriguez is a walking tribute. >> he's like family. there's nobody here that has not listened to vin. >> reporter: on vin scully appreciation day it was actually vin that was pitching out this gift. 50,000 letters went out to baseball fans thanking them for six decades of love and
dennis murphy drove five hours from san francisco to share this moment with his daughter. what is it about him that makes him the best? >> you know, i think it's just the way he brings the game to life. the experience of the game of baseball. and just the calm nature of his voice. >> reporter: in one week scully will call his final game in san francisco. but this afternoon he signed off one last time from dodger stadium. >> leave it to the dodgers. charlie culverson a game-winning home run. >> reporter: baseball is described as a boy's game played by men. if that holds true, then vin scully will be forever young. his voice echoing through history for millions of fans to come. mireya villareal, cbs news, dodger stadium. >> and that's the overnight news for this monday. for some of you the news continues. for others check back with us in just a short time for the morning news and "cbs this morning." from the broadcast center in new
>> announcer: this is the "cbs overnight news." welcome to the overnight news. i'm reena ninan. for months now hillary clinton and donald trump have engaged in a sort of political shadow boxing, throwing jabs at each other on the stump, in commercials and even on twitter. real with the first presidential debate of this election season. the verbal slugfest comes as the race tightens. the latest "washington post"/abc news poll has clinton and trump just about tied, with 46% for clinton and 44% for trump. a new cbs poll shows clinton holding her lead in virginia and colorado. those are two key battleground states. our poll shows trump leading in missouri, a state which has voted republican in recent
some analysts believe tonight's debate could be one of the most watched television events ever. jan crawford has more. >> reporter: getting ready for a presidential debate, it usually involves hours just locked inside a hotel conference room where they're running through every possible scenario. so we set up our own makeshift debate prep headquarters to talk to two political strategists about how it all works and what both candidates need to do to win. >> so they say she's been practicing for the debate. some people think she's sleeping. >> reporter: trump had a full schedule this week, traveling to the battleground states of north carolina, ohio, and pennsylvania instead of prepping for the debate. >> how's the debate prep going right now? >> well, i'm here at geno's. >> reporter: clinton on the other hand has been holed up with her top advisers preparing for what her campaign believes will be the single most consequential event leading up to election day. >> of all the big moments in a
judging both candidates side by side and next to each other. so it's less about scoring points and more about what kind of impression you leave. >> reporter: democratic strategist michael feldman helped run al gore's 2000 presidential campaign. we sat down with him and republican strategist dan senor, who helped romney prepare for his 2012 debate against president obama to find out what goes into winning. >> the best debaters, i have found, the best performers are the ones who say i'm not going to win or lose this debate on this detail or that detail, it's the general impression i make. >> reporter: of the two candidates trump is more difficult to predict. and unlike his opponent he's never gone head to head with just one other candidate, a physically exhausting task. >> it's a very physical experience. >> 90 minutes. one on one with -- >> no breaks, no distractions, no ads. >> standing up. >> it's exhausting. >> reporter: these strategists predict that monday's debate could change the contours of the 2016 race. with over 60% of voters expressing concern about trump's
>> it is the super bowl of american politics. >> and if it were hillary clinton against jeb bush, or hillary clinton against marco rubio or whomever, sure, it would be the first debate would be a big deal. but hillary clinton against donald trump, it's a show of epic proportions. >> and maybe unlike anything we've ever seen. >> yes. >> reporter: now, already this year's debate is unprecedented. this is the first presidential debate ever between a man and a woman. >> cbs news will have primetime coverage of the presidential eastern. john dickerson discussed the event with the vice presidential candidates tim kaine and mike pence for "face the nation." >> some of hillary clinton's supporters say there is a different standard for hillary clinton. what is that different standard in the debate? >> well, i'm not sure -- i'm hoping there isn't a different standard in the debate, john. i think there's been some worry that maybe up to now there's been different standards applied. but that's the great thing about the debate. i think there's three critical
hillary has been very specific about policy plans. we have a book out describing them. donald trump less so. but tomorrow is an opportunity to see whether donald will be specific about what he proposes to do. second, unanswered questions. the voters have questions. donald trump hasn't released his tax returns. news of this past week shows a whole series of very serious qu ties to russia. and finally, there's been news recently about very questionable, even illegal payments by the trump foundation. i think these unanswered questions are going to be on voters' minds. and then finally there's the issue of truthfulness. politifact has been tracking donald trump's claims on the campaign trail. thus far about 70% of the things they checked turn out to be false. so that's an interesting point about the debate tomorrow night too. in a 90-minute format, not 20-second sound bites, there's a real opportunity to hear somebody say something and then get into is that actually true
so i think the debate issue, obviously let it be an even standard for both. but that issue about specifics, answering those unanswered questions, and checking people on truthfulness, that's going to be very important. >> i noticed the campaign put out a list already of 18 or so questions of -- or falsehoods about donald trump they put out. that's about donald trump. but hillary clinton, everything she says in the campaign, that will be in tat everything she says will be truthful? >> i think that's fair game. it's fair game for both candidates to be challenged either on things that they said or things that they say tomorrow night. and again, i think the great virtue of these debates is you get 90 minutes to look at people and really see whether there's depth, whether there's substance, and whether there's candor and truthfulness in what they say. >> any advice you've given hillary clinton before the debate?
debates, but more in the area of kind of tone and style and how to effectively make your positive case even while parrying what the other guy throws at you. >> governor, most candidates would be hitting the books. donald trump has been out campaigning almost just like regular. so how has he been preparing for the debates? >> i think donald trump has been preparing for this debate for his entire lifetime. he's built a great business. he's traveled the country. and particularly in this campaign, john. as you saw last night in roanoke, virginia donald trump has been out among the american people. i think he's given voice to the frustrations and aspirations of the american people like no american leader in my lifetime since ronald reagan. and i think all of that is going to combine and come together. and i'm looking forward to seeing this good man, my running mate, step on that stage and present his message to make america great again to the american people. >> and he suggests the moderators shouldn't fact check in the debates.
>> well, i think we all had the experience a few years ago of mitt romney being interrupted and being challenged on an assertion that he made. i believe it was about the tragedy in benghazi. and it turned out the moderator was wrong. i think the important thing is that the american people hear from these two candidates. the choice in this campaign could not be more clear. in donald trump we have a leader who literally embodies the american spirit, who wants to change the direction of this country through rebuilding our military, less taxes, less regulation, repealing obamacare, standing by our constitution. and hillary clinton literally offers a third obama term, more of the same, more taxes, more regulation, more obamacare, more of the war on energy and more of the policies that have weakened america's place in the world. we need to hear from these two candidates and i hope and trust that the moderators will just facilitate that. >> and governor, donald trump
says in the debate on monday night will be truthful? >> i think donald trump always speaks straight from his m unlike ordinary diapers, pampers stay up to three times drier, so babies can sleep soundly all night. pampers. (coughs) that cough doesn't sound so good. well i think you sound great. move over. easy booger man. take mucinex dm. it'll take care of your cough. fine! i'll text you in 4 hours
looks like i'm good all night! ah! david, please, listen. still not coughing. not fair you guys! waffles are my favorite! ah! some cough medicines only last 4 hours. but just one mucinex lasts 12 hours. start the relief. ditch the misery. let's end this. mmm... i can't believe it's so delicious. i can't believe it has 40% fewer calories than butter. i can't believe it's made with real, simple ingredients. i can't believe we're on a whale. i can't believe my role isn't bigger. unbelievable taste.
well, we at cbs are saying good-bye to a broadcast legend, charles osgood. he spent nearly half a century right here at cbs. the last 22 years as host of "sunday morning." charles is handing the microphone to jane pauley. his final show was yesterday morning. rita braver has a look back at his life and his legacy. >> here it is, right here. nature's cooling system. the great american elm tree. >> reporter: whether describing a national treasure or deploring the plight of the homeless. >> being cold is not an abstraction but a reality you can feel in your bones. and the only thing that matters is to escape from the cold, and now. >> you know what this is, of
>> reporter: charles osgood says he wants us to take a closer look. >> let's see if he's there. >> you rang? >> and maybe in some cases to be angry or amused or sort of shake your head about this crazy world. and by the way, it is a crazy world. >> reporter: which helps explain how an economics major at fordham university in the bronx -- >> were the call letters the same when you were here? >> yes, they were. >> reporter: ended up at the campus radio station. >> i spent more time here than i did in classrooms or doing homework. >> reporter: he started as a classical music dj in washington, d.c. but at some point you moved to become a news reporter. what was the inspiration for that? >> there was a job that was available, and i knew how to get it. >> his first big-time news job was at abc. >> good morning. this is charles osgood, news
>> then in 1967 he joined wcbs radio in new york. >> well, today mrs. martin is the proud possessor of a plant that towers like jack's bean stalk, looks like a tomato plant, and is nicknamed fred. >> reporter: his distinctive style soon landed him a job at the cbs network. >> the osgood file. this is charles osgood. >> reporter: and in 1971 he launched one of the longest-running features in radio history. what came to be knowas >> edward r. murrow sure knew how to use his voice on the radio. >> reporter: several stories a day in two-minute segments that are surprisingly complex to craft. >> see you on the radio. i say that every week. a peculiar phrase some people think for anyone to speak. i've got a piece of mail or two on my office shelf saying this sentence seems to contradict itself.
there's nothing that can't be improved by making it shorter and better. >> reporter: when the idea of television was presented to you, was that exciting for you or foreboding? >> it scared me to death. it just about scared me to death. >> good evening. time's running out to get the hostage crisis -- >> reporter: in fact, he says the first time he anchored a broadcast he got some constructive criticism from the legendary mike wallace. >> he said you looked like you had gone into the room to empty the wastba up and you saw walter cronkite's chair. and so you said oh and you went and sat in his chair and you said to yourself i hope nobody catches me doing this, i hope nobody's watching. >> reporter: but soon he realized -- >> good evening, i'm charles osgood. >> reporter: -- he just needed to be himself on camera. >> it takes two to tango but more than two to make for any kind of peace in the middle east. >> it's important that the audience be comfortable and they
comfortable. >> reporter: in 1994 charles osgood took over "sunday morning" from the venerable charles kuralt. >> good morning. i'm charles osgood, and this is "sunday morning." i know it sounds strange to me too, but here we are. >> reporter: you've got to know that the audience came to not just accept you but to really be very fond of you. what was that like as you started to realize that? >> i think if you you do something every week and if you fill up their homes, then they get to know you. they're not even surprised when you knock on the door and say may i come in. ? ? we have actors and artists ? ? not just politicians ? ? >> reporter: in the 22 years since, charles osgood has taken us to cuba, explored the american architectural landmarks, even served up thanksgiving dinner.
in the process helping "sunday morning" earn three recent emmys for outstanding morning program. through it all he's followed his own wise counsel. >> before your working years are through i hope whatever work you do makes you happy, makes you smile. you may be at it quite a while. ? the feeling is not ? ? half bad ? ? >> we'll have more on charles osgood's final show at cbs after the break. you're watching the "cbs
put some distance between you and temptation with meta appetite control. clinically proven to help reduce hunger between meals. new, from metamucil, the #1 doctor recommended brand. after nearly half a century, legendary newsman charles osgood has retired. he hosted "sunday morning" for the final time yesterday. charles may well be remembered for his wit, his wisdom, or even his bowties, but his legion of fans also know he was an accomplished musician. anthony mason has that part of the story. ?
needed a house band. >> you know this song. ? you are my sunshine ? ? my only sunshine ? we had charlie. he was his own accompanist. even in his office you could catch charlie at the keyboard. >> you've been known to stop into the steinway showroom from time to time. >> yes indeed. >> reporter: charlie, who owns three steinways, fell in love with music hearing his mother play piano at home. >> piano was your first instrument. >> yes. well, toy piano was my first instrument. and i started playing by ear before i started taking lessons. >> did you have musical aspirations? >> no. i never thought that i would be a professional pianist. and i don't think i could get the job being one even today.
had a leading role in his life. in 1955, when he was about to be drafted into the army, he met an officer in dress blues. >> i'm a member of the united states army band. i said what instruments do you play? he said i'm the announcer. gong. i said when do you get out? he said next month. >> you saw a job opening. >> he would serve three years as the army band's announcer. >> the president who's making a rapid recovery. >> reporter: when president eisenhower was recovering at charlie was enlisted as his personal disc jockey. >> i was put into a studio with a stack of records that had all been chosen as his favorites, and i spent most of the day playing records for eisenhower. >> charlie started writing songs too. >> i don't think most people know that you had a top 40 hit. >> well, it's true, though.
>> reporter: working with john cacavas whom he'd met in the u.s. army band he wrote a tribute to america's fighting forces that in 1966 was recorded by senator everett dirkson. >> and he couldn't play anything and he couldn't sing anything. so he recited those lyrics. >> there have been men -- >> down through the years there have been men, bold valiant men who have died that others might be free. >> that others might be free. >> reporter: by january 1967 "gallant men" had climbed to >> what did you think as this thing started climbing the charts? >> well, i was delighted. he was delighted too. >> reporter: in the '60s he also wrote a song called "black is beautiful." nancy wilson recorded it and later sang it with him on "sunday morning."
? you are my sunshine ? ? my only sunshine ? >> reporter: as host of "sunday morning" charlie was able to explore his wildest musical fantasies. he performed at the grand ole opry. ? and played banjo with the boston pops. he played the organ at yankee stadium. ? and other exotic instruments. >> it's actually half a piano and half a zither. well, you're one of about 20 people who have played it. ? i'm dreaming of a white christmas ?
often solo. sometimes with special guests. ? and a happy new year ? >> play along. ? >> reporter: charles osgood has always understood the enduring power of music at transitional moments in our lives. as he himself explained in a 1995 story on the anniversary of v.e. day. >> with every parting there was always the fear that it might be and the hope that it would not be the last parting. maybe that is why this song that vera lynn used to sing became an anthem that even to this day can bring tears to the eyes of many an old soldier. >> reporter: so play it again, charlie. ? we'll meet again ? ? don't know where ? ? don't know when ? ? but i know we'll meet again
on the eve of the first presidential debate of the campaign season the race between hillary clinton and donald trump is tightening up. women voters could end up deciding who wins. they make up more than half of the electorate. manuel bojorquez spoke with women voters, democrats and republicans, in the battleground state of north carolina. >> there's still that notion of the glass ceiling for sure. i think that women are definitely more empowered but we're kind of still constricted to a box. >> even as a working woman we still face certain obstacles that i don't necessarily think every male in that same position is going to face. >> who's voting for hillary clinton? who's voting for donald trump? >> i'm republican. there is a part of me that is
strong. and i've got to pray that he surrounds himself with people that are smart, intelligent, fair. >> she was mentioning about core values. so if i'm looking at trump, there's not one segment of this country that he has not, you know, spoken about in a negative way. >> angela? >> i have decided not to vote this year. i can't vote for my party just because they're my party when they have somebody so careless and reckless. i am not a hillary supporter. >> why? >> i think that she stands for bad policies that we've had in the office for the last eight years. >> if hillary clinton were elected, would that be good for women, do you think? >> absolutely. >> i really believe fundamentally we need some female perspective creating policy. >> she's been a women's advocate and a children's advocate her entire career. so i think that can only bode
>> if donald trump were elected president, would that be good for women? >> i don't think it would hurt us as all. he is a businessman. he's always been a businessman. this is also a new environment for him. so i think he's learning as he's going. >> i believe the country is at a crossroads. i believe there are critical issues that have to be addressed in a steady and sensible and intelligent way. >> we should be proud to b to be able to vote and try to get the best candidate for all of us is huge. >> reporter: more than half of registered voters here in north carolina are women, and it is by all means a swing state. barack obama won here in 2008
