7:03 am
they were taken to iran's farsi island. david martin has more. >> reporter: good morning. the sailors were picked up by helicopter and flown to a u.s. headquarters, where they will be debriefed to get their account of exactly what happened. the pentagon says there was no indication they were harmed during their time in iranian hands. too small navy boats, similar to the ones here, were en route from kuwait to bahrain when u.s. officials say they suffered a mechanical breakdown. the boats drifted into iranian waters, and ten u.s. sailors were taken into custody and held overnight at an iranian base on the island of farsi. speaking on state tv, the naval chief of the iranian rove revolutionary guard said the sailors were taken into custody without much resistance. >> the only people in america -- >> reporter: any mention of the detainent was left out of the president's state of the union address as u.s. officials worked
7:04 am
on tuesday, secretary of state john kerry spoke directly with his iranian counterpart and was personally assured the sailors would be well-treated. >> we've received assurances that our sailors are safe and most importantly, received assurances that they will be allowed to continue their journey promptly. >> reporter: the sailors were on board navy riverine command boats which do not normally carry sensitive equipment. the incident comes two weeks after iranian revolutionary guard ships fired off rockets within a mile of the american aircraft carrier harry s. truman as it entered the persian gulf. the rockets were aimed away from the trip, but the incident drew strong protest from the u.s. the navy will now conduct an investigation. but the u.s. seems intent on getting this behind them as quickly as possible. defense secretary carter released a statement saying, "we appreciate the timely way in which this situation was resolved."
7:05 am
president obama says after seven years in office, the state of our union is strong. but there is strong reaction this morning to his final state of the union address. the president defended his record and again called for a change in the political climate. margaret brennan is at the white house with the key moments. margaret, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. well, president obama told his staff in november that he wants this last state of the union to feel like his first, a reflexive to-do list. he wanted to reassure anxious americans but also pointed to one of his failures. >> the rancor and suspicion between the parties has gotten worse instead of better. >> reporter: it was difficult to keep 2016 politics out of the chamber. >> some of you are antsy to get back to iowa. >> reporter: president obama was pointed in trying to tear down some of the claims of those
7:06 am
him. >> anyone claiming that america's economy is in decline is peddling fiction. our answer needs to be more than tough talk or calls to carpet bomb civilians. over the top claims that this is world war iii just play into their hands. >> reporter: mr. obama says he understands why voters are frustrated with politics. >> democracy breaks down when the average person feels their voice doesn't matter. that the system is rigged in favor of the rich or powerful or some special interest. >> reporter: in the gop response, south carolina governor nikki haley dismissed that rhetoric. >> unfortunately, the president's record has often fallen far short of his soaring words. >> reporter: but she admitted republicans are partially to blame for american anxiety and sought to distance her party from the controversy tone of its presidential contenders.
7:07 am
be tempting to follow the siren call of the angriest voices. we must resist that temptation. >> reporter: the president announced a final goal, a so-called moonshot to cure cancer. that appeared to surprise vice president biden, who lost a son to cancer last year. control. lost. for the families that we can still save. let's make america the country that cures cancer once and for all. >> reporter: with the fanfare behind him, the president left the chamber for the last time, pausing for a moment to take it all in. >> let me look at this thing one last time. that's kind of cool. >> reporter: today, president obama will sound a lot like he did as a candidate, promoting the message of hope and change % in states like louisiana and nebraska.
7:08 am
planning some communications strategy changes, more town hall style events in the months to come, to have the president speak with people rather than at them. >> thanks, margaret. the vice president of the united states, joe biden, is with us from washington. mr. vice president, good morning, great to have you. >> happy to be with you, charlie. >> speaker ryan said, "if everything was as great as the president said it was, two-thirds of the american people would not say the country was on the wrong track." is there a disconnect? >> i think there's two reasons, charlie. one, the blowback from the recession has still left a lot of middle class people who lost their homes, who were in the stock market, didn't get back in as it came back up. the job stagnation -- excuse me, the wage stagnation. and i think the president explained it fairly well, about the international changes taking place with globalization and the way things are moving. we have to adjust.
7:09 am
and so there's understandable frustration, understandable concern. but there's no question, no question, we're the most respected, most powerful nation in the world. there is no question that no one is, as they used to say in my neighborhood, a patch on my jeans. that doesn't mean there aren't real, genuine concerns, particularly with income disparity. >> speaking of income disparity, you said hillary clinton is late to the issue. what does that mean? >> the context is always, it gets reshaped, not intentionally, but gets reshaped in the retelling. i was asked a question about bernie sanders and about hillary, and what i was saying was, hillary has been secretary
7:10 am
five years before she ran for office. and prior to that, her major focus and function was still in the area of national security. but bernie has been doing the same speech for the last 30 years. and all i meant was that this is bernie's -- i mean, literally, he's never changed his position. so there is a difference. i think some of the policies that hillary has come forward with are very, very proactive. i think they would be very helpful to the middle class. i think she's moving in the right direction. but the comparison was, she and bernie. it wasn't that she wasn't authentic. she is authentic. it's that this has been what bernie has been talking about. it's like if you ask me in reverse, why isn't bernie talking more about women like hillary? this has been hillary's wheelhouse since she's been a public face in the united
7:11 am
it doesn't mean he doesn't support women. it's just her wheelhouse. that's the context in which the discussion took place. >> mr. vice president, obama said last night that anyone claiming america's economy is in decline is peddling fiction. but the facts are this. we have more than 47 million people living in poverty. household income has dramatically shifted to upper income americans from middle income americans. wages in this country are stagnant. the economy has gotten worse for many americans. is there a disconnect here? >> the overall economy is healthy. the dislocations and the concentration of wealth are dangerous. i remember discussing with you, charlie, where i pointed out an article from the new england -- from the university of massachusetts, a professor pointing out that of the $4.7 trillion in profit from 2003 to
7:12 am
went to buying back stock, 34% to rewarding shareholders, 9% left for everything else. that's what barack and i have been fighting about. we've been saying that what you have to do is give greater opportunity. corporate attitudes have to change. it's no longer -- they act like they have no corporate responsibility to the community, no corporate responsibility to their employees. there has been a shift, a significant shift that's dangerous. and that's what's wrong with america. but not the overall economy. the overall economy relative to the rest of the world is by far and away the healthiest economy. >> what was mentioned last night was the iran detention of ten u.s. sailors. the news is good this morning. what can you tell us about that? >> apparently we had, from our military, one of the boats had engine failure, drifted into iranian waters. the iranians picked up both boats, as we have picked up iranian boats that needed to be rescued, and took them to -- i'm
7:13 am
want to misspeak here. and they realized they were there in distress and said they would release them and release them, like ordinary nations would do. that's the way nations should deal with each other. that's why it's important to have channels open. >> did we apologize to the iranians? >> no, there was no poppingapology. if you have a problem with a boat, do you apology for the boat? no. this was just standard nautical practice. >> mr. vice president, a pleasure to have you. >> thanks, guys. governor nikki haley gave the republican response to the president. she joins us this morning. good morning, governor. >> good morning, an in our great day in south carolina. >> you said last night your party has to resist the temptation to follow the siren call of the angriest voices.
7:14 am
criticism at donald trump? >> the angriest voices referred to a lot of things. certainly some things that mr. trump has said, but it's been other things as well. you know, if you saw what happened, we were one of those areas that had to deal with issues of law enforcement. there are a lot of bad or a few bad, angry actors every so often. we had an officer who shot walter scott. rather than having a lot of angry voices out there, what we did was came together, republicans and democrats, white and black, and passed the first body camera bill in the country. mr. trump is not exempt from being one of those angriest voices. all i'm saying is, we've got a responsibility. and the way we handle issues and the way we talk about issues should be towards solutions, not towards division. and so i say that in reference to a lot of things. >> governor, a lot of people looked at your address and
7:15 am
rebuttal to the president's state of the union but also a call to distance yourself from adopt. >> no, it was about calling out my party, i called out republicans and democrats. i think it's important, if the country is going to look forward, we all need to look in the mirror and realize we had something to do with this. once you do that, you can regroup and build the country back up again. >> as you know, there's also things called pundits and radio hosts. laura ingraham tweeted that it may not be smart, and ann coulter said the gop should deport you. >> i respect both women. i was given the opportunity by speaker ryan and senator mcconnell to say what i think. i was very critical of the administration. i was very critical of the things that obama hasn't done,
7:16 am
it's the economy, whether it's education, whether it's dividing the country. but i was also critical about our own republicans. and that's because we can't assume that we have no blame here. >> governor, you're also getting -- many people are applauding you for speaking candidly and criticizing your own party. was that difficult for you to do? it's rare for people to do that. >> no, it wasn't. in south carolina, i've had to do that with my own party here in south carolina. it's healthy. you know, it's healthy when you can point out certain things that you feel like weren't in the best interests of your state or your country. but it's not personal. >> would you like to see a woman on the republican ticket? >> i don't think that those things matter. i would like to see a good ticket. i want a good, strong ticket that makes the republican party proud, that is one that talks about the solutions to healthcare, the solutions to education, what we can do with tax reform, how we're going to fix national security. so if that's a woman, if it's a minority, if it's a man, i'll take it. we just want to get good leadership.
7:17 am
>> governor haley, great to have you on this morning, thank you for joining us. >> thank you so much, good morning. "face the nation" moderator john dickerson joins us from washington. john, good morning. >> good morning, gayle. >> a lot of people are saying last night was a night against donald trump. he took jabs from the president and, many believe, from nikki haley. she's getting a lot of talk this morning. what do you say about that? >> yes, he's brought the country together in bipartisan agreement. the president was talking about his ban on new muslims coming into the country. nikki haley was also clearly talking about him. so for somebody who likes attention, though, that probably doesn't totally upset him. >> what do you think it means that conservatives, particularly those on radio, laura ingraham, ann coulter, are denouncing haley, saying she went too far?
7:18 am
party, whether the people in the establishment are listening to and understand the grassroots. we're going to see this continue to play out. what was notable here is not so much the friction, but just that nikki haley was bold enough to say this in such a big and public forum. this wasn't in response to the president. this was a response to the republican frontrunner. >> turning to the democratic race for president, explain the sanders surge to us. >> enthusiasm among people who feel like, while they liked president obama, they still feel like the system is rigged. last night president obama in his speech used that expression twice to basically say that the economic system is rigged. they think bernie sanders, who has been loud and proud about what he's been saying for his entire career, is a more authentic vessel for that view. >> thank you, john dickerson. >> thanks, gayle. winter weather blasts huge areas of the country today.

8:02 am
we have been adding new jobs, we are to the strongest economy once again, as we have historically been, we remain the leader in the world on so many important issues, but, and there's a big but, and i think the president had a long laundry list of unfinished business we need to be focused on. >> madam secretary, your is supporters are a little worried tonight, polls say that bernie sanders is surging. how do you feel about that? >> i always expected this would be a teegtight race, that's the experience i have had in politics, i'm very happy about where my campaign is, what we're talking about, the reaction we're getting, it's going to be the wire. i'm doing all i can to reach out to as many people to convince them to caucus for me in iowa

tonightar tonight marks the eighth year that i've come here to report on the state of the union. and for this final one, i'm going to try to make it a little shorter. [ applause ] i know smch youome of you are antsy to get back to iowa. >> you heard president bush starting -- president obama start off his final state of the union with a joke. he then laid out goals for the country in his last year in office and beyond.
8:11 am
that was four points below ronald reagan in his last year in office. bill o'reilly's latest book "killing reagan," welcome back to studio 57. >> appreciate it. >> nice to have you here. we'll talk about the book and your success in a moment, but i want to talk about the news of the day and the president's remarks last night. one of the things he really wanted to do was get involved in the political debate. i think this was less a state of the union than it was an argument in some ways. he said america's economic decline is a bunch of political hot air. >> 66% of the american public according to your own poll disagrees with him and thinks the country is on a wrong track. look, this was a political speech in an age where we need problem-solving not more bloviating, and it's both sides. why don't you guys knock off the bs. and i'll give you an example. america is the most powerful
8:12 am
what good is the power if we don't use it wisely. chaos in the middle east. iran takes advantage of us, china melting down economically. >> so we're going to be the world's policemen? >> no. nato. nato should be fighting isis and protecting those poor refugees starving in syria. why isn't nato doing that? why? nobody can answer the question. i'm tired of bloviating political bs. i want a problem-solver in the oval office next time around. >> so you're criticizing both parties, which is what nikki haley did last night. >> nikki haley is a good shot to be vp, by the way. >> now she's getting criticized for criticizing her party. >> everybody is getting criticized. and that was the strongest point president obama made last night. knock it off. knock the ideology off, we've got serious problems here. >> specifically governor haley said during anxious times it can
8:13 am
call of the angriest voices. she's talking about donald trump. >> so what? trump might get elected because he's angry and so are the american people so he's reflecting that anger. >> is america angry? is that what we want -- >> look, anger can be good if it leads to problem-solving. if trump ran as a standard politician, he'd be at 6%. trump accurately gauges the mood of the country, is reflecting that mood in the republican precincts and may very well win the nomination. so he's doing that to win. is he that bombastic when he wins? i'm not sure. if he is, he can't win the general. >> do you believe he believes what he says? >> yes. in a general sense. but i believe he makes rhetorical mistakes. >> what do you mean? what's a rhetorical mistake? >> you say we're going to ban all muslims, okay. that's not going to help us fight isis, but he didn't think it out. mexico, he was clearly talking
8:14 am
government when he was talking about mexicans being drug dealers and this and that but he didn't articulate it well enough. >> does he do that on purpose, though? >> no. he's not a politician. look, when you're a billionaire, rose, you can say what you want, okay? you have billions of dollars. you don't have to think it out. >> yes, you do. >> no, you don't. >> yes, you do, bill o'reilly. >> he's at 36%. >> yeah. but your words have power and you still have to be accountable for your words. >> not according to the republican people. >> can i ask a political question real quick. >> don't you want to talk about "killing reagan"? >> but a quick question too though. donald trump this week is opening his campaign rallies with bruce springsteen song "born in the usa," a dig at ted cruz. >> this is stupid. >> what part of this is stupid? >> cruz can run for president. that's it. >> so what do you think trump is saying by bringing that up? >> to diminish cruz, because
8:15 am
that's what they do. "killing reagan." >> you took us through his hollywood career, the ups and the downs. you go from bedtime to bonzo to the president of the united states. what was so fascinating about him? reagan was no joke. >> he was a shallow actor who then becomes one of the greatest presidents of all time. how did it happen? how did it happen? >> nancy reagan played a key role, don't you think? >> big. nancy is big. and nancy changed from a real harpy, from a -- >> harpy? >> yeah, who even betty ford didn't like into this hero at the end of the president's life. and so both tracks have this tremendous evolution, and that's what fascinated me about the material. >> we should say that some of the people that work with reagan, george schultz, ed miese in particular, say the book doesn't resemble the man they worked with.
8:16 am
reagan's assassination attempt affected his mindset. >> of course it did. >> and that's what hethey object to. >> well, look, as jack nicholson once said, you can't handle the truth. just ask lesley stahl who knows reagan as well as anybody. ronald reagan fought through this assassination attempt and i believe that made him a great man. he had to rise, because he was so badly hurt. >> thank you, bill o'reilly. >> all right, guys, thanks for having me in. >> you can call me, charlie, though, bill. >> come on, rose, don't ghettoet get offended. the glamour i call by their first name. you, you're rose. >> all right, o'reilly, thanks. "killing reagan" is on sale right now. we'll be right back.t want to live wit the uncertainties of hep c. or wonder... ...whether i should seek treatment. i am ready. because today there's harvoni. a revolutionary treatment for the most common type

harvoni is proven to cure up to 99% of patients... ...who've had no prior treatment. it's the one and only cure that's... ...one pill, once a day for 12 weeks. certain patients... ...can be cured with just 8 weeks of harvoni. th harvoni, ere's no interferon and there are no complex regimens. tell your doctor if you have other liver or kidney problems, hiv, or other medical conditions. and about all the medicines you take including herbal supplements. taking amiodarone with harvoni may cause a serious slowing of your heart rate. common side effects of harvoni may include tiredness, headache and weakness. i am ready to put hep c behind me. i am readyto be cured. are you ready? ask your hep c specialist if harvoni is right for you. ever since darryl's wife started using gain flings, their laundry smells more amazing than ever.

8:26 am
as the number of reviews grows, so does the risk that some are fraudulent. jeremy stoppelman is the cofounder of yelp. welcome back to the table. >> good to be here. >> i remember when you were last year, do you remember what yelp stands for? >> yelp, yellow pages. >> 90 million people have access to yelp to their phones and it directly affects people's businesses. was that your intention starting back in the day? >> absolutely. when you back to 2004 when yelp was created we had just the yellow pages and a big book of advertisements. with yelp you can tap into the community around you. you have this entire city here in new york and everybody sharing their favorite recommendations. >> and their negative recommendations too. >> how can you trust the consumer reviews? >> how could you not trust it if
8:27 am
if everybody was five stars, how would you distinguish, like, what are the really great businesses so the beauty of yelp. reflects the real world which is the good and the bad and a lot of good. >> the challenge comes, though, because something want to gain the system. >> that comes with power. so as yelp becomes more useful and millions of people are relying on it, then, sure, everybody is looking to figure out how do i get better reviews? how do i rank higher? just like websites like to rank higher than google too. >> when i use yelp how does it determine which reviews are the ones you see? >> it's looking at the ratings. the quantity of ratings and what the star rating is between 1 and 5. and then we are also looking at what did you type in? if you search for something specific, like i wanted something, we are trying to match up to places that are highly rated. >> there are also examples of defamation lawsuits and people wrote negative reviews and
8:28 am
another woman was ordered to pay $1,000 after she made a negative review. how is the consumer protected? if i have a bad experience, why can't i is a i it wassay it's not good? >> certain businesses have tried to create these gag clauses, so they slip it in there some of the paper work you're signing maybe when you check in at a hotel. it says if you write anything negative about us, we are going to charge you an extra $500. that doesn't make sense and it wouldn't hold up in court. a bill working its way through congress to protect against that. >> i want to ask you about the industry at large, because you have been very critical of google. in fact, you said google has completely lost its mind. >> it has. >> how? >> it's really compromised the consumer. if you pull up on your mobile phone right now and do a search for, say, sushi new york right here, you're actually not even
8:29 am
you're getting google. and google doesn't necessarily have the best results and don't have the best content that open table and others have. it used to be a turnstile you searched google and it sent you to the best place on the web and not how it's working now. >> who do you mean foolinggoogle? eye >> google has its own yelp. >> but google has denied search bias? >> they haven't necessarily denied it. they said this is what we are going to do. the ftc took a look at it a while ago and was conflicted internally. a lot of mystery what happened with that process. >> why don't they have a bigger challenger? >> they do have a challenger in local which is us. >> i know but you know what i'm saying. the majority of searches is on google. >> a network effect to it. as you get more data you become more intelligent and you become smarter and allows you to serve up better results.
8:30 am
money therapy the default everywhere. when with you type in a web search on your iphone, guess where you go? straight to google. that is because google is paying millions and millions of dollars to apppp to have that position. >> you're supporting legislation that protects consumers. what is missing online to protect us? >> i mean, one of the main areas that we are focused is fairly technical area of the law called anti-slap legislation, so when a person writes a review that is maybe a controversial or negative, sometimes business owners want to sue them. a lot of states actually have very strong protections that allow the courts to take a quick look and then throw out that lawsuit. but they vary by state and we would love to see that put in place at the federal level so that everyone is covered in the same way. >> jeremy stoppelman, great to have you at the table. >> thanks for having me. >> thank you. paul giamatti is in our toyota green room with a sneak peek at his new drama
