7:09 am
stifled american again and tired of obamacare. 25% increases on average in our obamacare premiums in 2017. the american people know we can do better and know we can be stronger and more prosperous and i think that will translate into a great victory. >> your running mate is concerned about a rigged election. are you concerned about that as well? >> i think when donald trump talks about a rigged election, with all due respect it's been coverage about my running mate in many quarters of the national media is overcomeing to the avalanche of scandal of hillary clinton's years as secretary of state. >> the chances of a rigged election are so very rare. >> but my point is i think he talks about the media has seemed to many americans as trying to rig the election in a way that favors hillary clinton. it seems like they do half of

for me, you know, the reason why we went to colorado we wanted the state with more experience with it. like we said in the preview most americans do want it to be legal and if it's going to be legalized, we need to find out, you know, how to do it the most responsible way and the governor said to me what are the guardrails here and how do you make it so kids -- >> he is going from opposition to let's see? >> to let's see and when you go there and you speak to doctors realize there are so many questions. this is so tricky, which is why we have learned so much -- >> what more needs to be done, jon, to reallynd the effects of recreational use? >> for one thing, the governor said we need to start getting data now. one of the problems that they have in colorado was, yes, they were able to measure in babies, for example, newborn babies, marijuana in the system. there have been a slight increase that they have measured of fatal car crash where they find marijuana in the driver. but is that a change?
7:45 am
is that a change. >> you said you asked governor pence about this and said there has been no discussion on the campaign trail? >> he said very little and i think it's slipping, you know, the radar, this discussion. >> the point is there are new pot laws on the bolts that are going to affect about 84 million americans. we will be talking about it on election night. thank you. >> thanks. >> you can see jon's full report on sunday on "60 minutes." he'll show you the largest recreational marijuana cultivation center in the country sunday on cbs. mastered the art of 60-second video but their outlet for self-expression will soon disappear. the end of the era for the social network vine. first, it's time to check

8:00 am
>> it was his third rally of the day. >> politico is reporting that vice president biden is clinton's top choice for secretary of state if she wins. i'm told that there is a list and he is on it. >> i got biden. he said, i want to take you behind the gym. oh, i dream of that. biden. >> there wasnc a woman was arrested for allegedly firing three shots at police. >> we actually got a plug for carpool karaoke from some lady. >> it hasn't been all hard work. she played a mean round of carpool karaoke. >> you don't play carpool karaoke. and it's hard work. may i take this opportunity to say you are welcome to join me
8:01 am
>> game on. >> she cannot turn that down. >> can you imagine hillary clinton in carpool karaoke? >> i think they both should do it and -- >> you mean james and hillary? >> no, donald and james and hillary and james. i think that would be great tv. >> absolutely. >> are you listening, james corden? >> gayle has got ideas. >> it's not up to james corden. >> that is true! that is true. i'm charlie rose with gayle king and norah o'donnell. with 11 days until the election wikileaks is continuing to release e-mails apparently stolen from hillary clinton's campaign chairman. campaign officials were caught off-guard by news of her private e-mail account. >> john podesta wrote do you have any idea of the depth of this story? campaign manager robbie mook replied nope, we brought up the existence of e-mails this summer
8:02 am
john dickerson asked joe biden about clinton using private e-mail servers. >> trust and honesty is a big part of this campaign. voters don't trust either of the two candidates. i went back and looking at promises to keep and you talk about your grandfather finnegan and his lesson, public servants are obliged to level with everybody. whether or not they will like what he, the public servant, has to say. do you think that applies to hillary clinton's dealing with this private server that she set up? >> well, i think it's a combination of a couple of things. one, i don't think she understood the gravity of setting it up. she thought it was, this is okay to do. and then when this woman has been so battered over the last 30 years. i think then when faced this is a problem, i think instead of
8:03 am
it immediately, there is always inclination to overthink it. >> you can see more of john's interview with vice president joe biden this sunday on "face the nation" including what he plans to do, when he leaves office. mike pence will also appear on the program, that's is sunday. >> having a great cbs weekend. >> very good. pence std the atlantic is endorsing a presidential candidate third time in 160 years and supporting hillary clinton. that came after a long time political and foreign affairs writer jeffrey goldberg is the magazine's editor in chief earlier this month. the atlantic's editorial board wrote that donald trump might be the, quote, the following. jeffrey goldberg joins us at the table. good morning to you, mr. editor in chief and congratulations. >> thank you. >> so this is only the third
8:04 am
hillary clinton. yet the title says against donald trump, jeffrey. >> right, right. we were more motivated to make our statement about donald trump than about hillary clinton. we don't endorse very often. hillary clinton is qualified to run for president. >> you call donald trump an infomercial huxster? >> yes, because that's how we feel about him. we feel that he is very, very unqualified by temperament, by experience, by the things that he has said and he seems outside the norm of american political discourse. we are a nonpartisan magazine. this is about a basic world view and temperament. >> let me understand one point. newspapers, for example, there the editors with the news gathering and publisher and the editorial board make this decision. are you involved in the decision to endorse? >> yes, we are. magazines are different and not that wall between opinion and the straight journalism in a kind of way. we have a point of view. >> the endorsement an enthusiastic endorsement for
8:05 am
trump? >> we would not have done this if hillary clinton had been running against mitt romney or george w. bush or john mccain. hillary is perfectly qualified but so were they. we didn't want to get into the ideological differences. in some ways trump is outside the norm of republican thought. >> i want to talk about contending with military operations in iraq and syria. the defense secretary ash carter has called the mosul campaign a decisive moment in defeating the islamic state. what is next for the next president? >> well, this president, barack obama, who came into office with a very messy barn, this is the language that he uses, wanted to leave a clean barn for his successor so he is very focused on raqqa and mosul in iraq. he probably will have victory in mosul. he might have a victory in

isis is in paris. and so this becomes a prime challenge for him. >> but raqqa is a headquarters -- >> it is a headquarters but smash down on that but you will scatter. >> you compared it to the zika virus? >> i think of isis as a bug. zika, you will control it but never completely eradicate it. isis you will not eradicate it in the short term. you push them out ir but it's not -- it's not the definitive. >> a good thing in part because a rallying cry for recruitment? >> if you're a caliphate. >> a lot of presidents face a lot of scrutiny.

clearly irritated that -- he compels him to treat saudi arabia as an ally. how has he changed the map who is our allies and how he treats traditional allies? >> he has questioned some of the underlining assumptions of foreign policy and still an ally of saudi arabia. he doesn't like it and he signals that in some ways and saudis feel it but we are still aligned with them and too much to do with them together. >> he runs over that reassurement every chance he gets? >> he has to. first, there is a weird passive and aggressive relationship. we are stuck together on a bunch of issues for a while. >> he is urging them to get along with iran? >> yes which is not the easiest thing to urge the saudis to do and they are waiting for a president clinton to stop making that request. >> lots to talk about and please come back.

8:22 am
took a bizarre turn. a 911 call from mook. mook didn't know he called 911 and he was recorded in a private conversation for 22 minutes. how does this happen? >> he must have had some phone similar to this iphone. you stick it in your back pocket. if you lean against something, you are going to press the button. >> so he butt dialed? >> he butt dialed. >> reporter: despite the call, shelly's case went cold. then three years after her disappearance, tyler mook got himself in big trouble for attacking his girlfriend. >> he threw me over the side of the boat. that's when he jumped in behind me. turned me upside down and was holding me under. >> reporter: he was arrested and

8:33 am
but even in the actual books themselves which people were so attracted to and for so long so i think so many spins of sherlock and watson is what we think is successful and what rob doherty the executive creator thinks and stuck to his guns. >> adding to the elements. >> it does. it's nice that there is something -- we don't really take that into consideration. i think in terms of the gender but i do think that rob's original idea was that sherlock always has this uncomfortable feeling around women and he sort of thought it would be interesting to have a woman be around him all the time so he has to kind of wear that uncomfortable sweater all the time and how does that change his demeanor. >> so, johnny, lucy directed some of the episodes this season. how was that? >> it was great.
8:34 am
>> one for the last three seasons. >> hard to direct and act? >> not easy. they don't make it easy. i'm like, can you guys write me a little bit less in the episode? it's like i'm in every scene. it's been a challenge but i think it's, to me, it's been such a wonderful creative experience and the opportunity to do both really shows you, you know, what you're capable of. it pushes you to your max essentially. >> what is it about sherlock holmes? so many iterations and so many movies and television programs about sherlock holmes. >> i think it's a testament of the ability to write character as well. i think they were such hugely popularly and the books are filled with wonderful characters and when he nailed two very, very strong, very unique characters originally and i
8:35 am
it suits serialization and the original books were serialized which works for us in our interpretation in network drama because you have a consistent element and you can keep repeating that and, yet, it's character-driven. it's sort of a weird relationship that works. >> it's also problem solving? >> right. in the relationship and in our cases that we have which is nice. >> it's also the writing on the show too that makes it, i think, so really delicious to watch and the way you two play off of each othean >> yes. we have a really wonderful group of people that show -- i mean, i read the script and i learn things all the time. like little specifics which, you know, help solves the case ultimately. >> you're starting your fifth season. i remember when you started. we are in our fifth season too. >> that's wonderful. we are parallel congratulating each other. >> yea! >> yea! >> lucy liu and johnny lee miller, we are cheering you on. >> and you guys too. >> the fifth season of

8:41 am
i think people come to the smokies all year-round but there is something about the fall where the leaves change, the smells are different, the sights a different and you really can see a different life on the trail. >> reporter: the colors of autumn slide their way down the mountains. from colder peaks to warmer valleys for up to six weeks. smokies are home to 130 different kinds of trees. >> we are fortunate, too, because our fall peak season starts in september and goes all the way through november so you have a time frame fall foliage. >> reporter: because the elevation is so extreme. it goes from 500 feet to 6,000? >> yeah. >> reporter: you get a season that lasts a month and a half? >> absolutely. part of the experience year. >> reporter: cassius cash is the park's superintendent. his path here is just as inspiring as the views. he was raised a city kid in downtown memphis. where you grew up, did you ever see any of this?

8:43 am
service. he has taken groups of kids up and down the trails since spring. >> when the park service was created in 1916, 50% of our country was urban. now 80% of our country is now urban. the likelihood or the relationship that kids are engaging with the natural world is shrinking on that so in order to be relevant for the next hundred years, we have to, as i share with folks, participate in all rescue. >> it's been inspiring for all those kids he has come into contact with, but also the people that have the honor to walk beside him and work with him. >> reporter: christine hoyer is in charge of the back country here. not easy, since there are 849 miles of trails. all of which receive near constant rainfall. >> we want to get a map and push it. >> reporter: that means washed out sections often need to be repaired. a team of volunteers in this case, are restoring the impassible with natural
