forward claiming to have won. >> i wish it was me. a video showing another chicago police shooting. >> three years after police killed an unarmed african-american teenager. a driver in houston is going to have to do some explaining. he was caught on camera seemingly asleep. all that. >> you've got to be kidding me. grizzlies get the incredible victory. >> and all that matters. any way that we can talk the first lady into it. >> no. there are three things that are certain in life. death, taxes and michelle is not running for president. >> on cbs this morning. donald trump a rally in pensacola, florida, the crowd was treated to an almost indescribable performance. donald trump to make america great lead from strength or get crushed every time
7:02 am
bowl halftime show, you know? >> this morning's "eye opener" is presented by toyota. let's go places. welcome to "cbs this morning." anthony mason is joining us, nice to have you here. >> great to be here. >> the reason you're here is because charlie rose is in california where he interviewed sean penn, the actor is breaking his silence about his secret trip to mexico to meet the notorious drug board joaquin dwuz man. they recaptured the cartel leader known as "el chapo" one week ago. >> sean penn made headlines the next day when "rolling stone" published his account of visiting the kingpin in hiding last october. in an interview for 60 minutes charlie met with penn in.santa monica to talk about that trip. charlie joins us where a lot of people are looking forward to hearing what saeb peb has to say. good morning to you.
7:03 am
and anthony. sean penn wanted to clarify his involvement in "el chapo's" recapture, mexican authorities have said knowledge of his trip helped them move in on the drug lord. penn believes those claims of his contribution are incorrect and could put him in danger. >> there is this myth about the visit that we made, my colleagues and i, with "el chapo," that it led -- that it was as the attorney general in mexico has quoted essential to his capture. we had met with him many weeks earlier. >> on october 2nd. >> on october 2nd. in a place nowhere near where he was captured. >> so as far as you know you had nothing to do and your visit had nothing to do with his recapture? >> the things -- here is the things that we know. we know that the mexican government, they were clearly
7:04 am
that someone found him before they did. well, nobody found him before they did. we didn't -- we are not smarter than the dea or the mexican intelligence. we had a contact upon which we were able to facilitate an invitation. >> do you believe that the mexican government released this in part because they wanted to see you blamed and to put you at risk? >> yes. >> they wanted to encourage the cartel to put you in their cross hairs? >> yes. >> are you fearful for your life? >> no. >> i first wanted to know why you wanted to do this, why you wanted to go there. second i want to know the sense of how you felt about the risk you might be taking and why that risk was worth it. >> i had only -- only that i thought this is somebody upon whose interview could i begin a
7:05 am
the war on drugs. that was my simple idea. >> if you wanted to have a conversation about the policy of the war on drugs. >> that's right. we're going to put all our focus, forget about blame, we're going to put all our focus, all our energy, all our billions of dollars on the bad guy. and what happens? you get another death the next day the same way. >> do you make a moral equivalency between "el chapo" and people who either buy or sell drugs in america? >> i do if it's me. i can't make -- i don't make that judgment for everyone else but i wouldn't go so far as to buy or sell drugs. >> so he is no better than you or no worse than you. >> i say i can't make him worse than me. if i'm not out there doing everything that i can to get a conversation going on the way in which we prosecute that war.
7:06 am
and i'm asking now -- you have no regrets. >> yeah, i have a terrible regret. >> what are the regrets? >> i have a regret that the entire discussion about this article ignores its purpose, which was to try to contribute to this discussion about the policy in the war on drugs. >> let's go -- let's go to the big picture of what we all want. we all want this drug problem to stop. we all want the killings in chicago to stop. we are the consumer. whether you agree with sean penn or not, there is a complicity there, and if you are in the moral right or on the far left, just as many of your children are doing these drugs, just as many. and how much time have they spent in the last week since this article came out talking about that? 1%?
7:07 am
much dialogue about -- >> my article failed. let me be clear. my article has failed. >> charlie, is sean penn still in contact with anybody in "el chapo's" camp and does evening -- >> no. >> -- that the two will ever meet again. >> no, he said he would have wanted to have met with him again and that was his plan, but no, he has not heard from anyone in the cartel or surrounding "el chapo" who has now been recaptured back in the same prison that he escaped from a year ago, six months ago. so that -- that point about him and what he hoped to accomplish is just one small part of a long conversation about how he negotiated with "el chapo," what the deal was. this deal and this trip was led by the actress kate del castillo, she had had some contact with him, he was smitten
7:08 am
and believes that that contact enabled him to go. we know now from some things that have been released by the mexican authorities that there was an interesting dynamic between the two of them that enabled him to go. so watch 60 minutes and you will see more of a very interesting conversation about the deals he made, why he went and what he thought of "el chapo." >> all right. in addition to 60 minutes, how about watching you in our next hour because you're coming back. >> well, and one more thing, he will be -- in full the conversation will be seen on my pbs show on monday night. >> all right. but again, charlie is going to be here in our next hour. you can't leave us yet, charlie, sean penn talks about why he thinks the interview has gotten negative reaction from journalists. you can see charlie's entire interview on "60 minutes." that of course of is sunday right here on cbs. we have breaking news from hawaii where a search is going on right now for 12 missing military personnel.
7:09 am
marine ch-53 helicopters called sea stallions that collided overnight. cost guard officials say there's debris in the water. searchers at the scene found an empty life raft, the choppers were based at an air corps station. there is no word for a cause for the collision. ted cruz made his strongest attack on donald trump in the latest republican presidential debate. he accused the front runner of acting like a socially liberal new yorker, focused on money and the media. well, that led to this attack by the new york daily news with the headline, drop dead, ted. trump hit cruz on his canadian birth claimeding it could disqualify him from the race. major, good morning. >> good morning, the mutual nonaggression packet between ted cruz and donald trump is now officially over.
7:10 am
their poll standing and new york values. meanwhile, other republicans on stage struggled for attention and held onto the dim hope that there might be some opening in this cruz and trump angry exchange for an emergence of a mainstream republican alternative. >> there's a big question mark on your head. >> birtherism, prime time republican style. >> there are other attorneys that feel -- and very, very fine constitutional attorneys -- that feel that because he was not born on the land he cannot run for office. >> well, listen, i've spent my entire life defending the constitution before the u.s. supreme court and i will tell you i'm not going to be taking legal advice from donald trump. >> you don't have to. >> with economic relief. >> i hate to interrupt this episode of court tv -- >> less than three weeks before the first nominating votes are cast donald trump and ted cruz are fighting for the lead in iowa, the two squared off over cruz's definition of trump's
7:11 am
>> the values in new york city are socially liberal or pro abortion or pro gay marriage focus around money and the media. >> when the world trade center came down, i saw something that no place on earth could have handled more beautifully and i have to tell you that was a very insulting statement that ted made. >> reporter: trump also defended his call to ban all muslims from entering the u.s. >> i said temporarily. i didn't say permanently. >> reporter: that drew a sharp rebuke from jeb bush. >> all muslims, seriously? what kind of signal does that send to the rest of the world. >> reporter: marco rubio clashed with chris christie. >> unfortunately governor christie has endorsed many of the ideas that barack obama supports. >> two years ago he called me a conservative reformer that new jersey needed. >> reporter: and with cruz. >> i saw you on the senate floor flip your vote on crop insurance because they told you it would
7:12 am
consistent conservatism, that is political calculation. >> reporter: after the debate trump expressed confidence about his chances in the caucuses on february 1st but acknowledged nothing is guaranteed. >> you know, it's interesting. when people wait in line for five hours to, say, go to a rally i would imagine they would show up to caucus in the case of iowa. >> reporter: on the question of new york values from one perspective it's clear cruz values new york quite a bit. cruz has accepted more than $276,000 in campaign contributions from residents of the big apple. >> major, thank you so much. let's bring in face the nation moderator and cbs news political director john dickerson. good morning. >> good morning. >> so there was the trump/cruz slugfest. who emerged with the fewest bruises. >> it's such a shame when friendships go bad. i think they both emerged with kind of what they wanted.
7:13 am
here is a candidate without much executive experience and when people are in debates they look at the candidates and say can they handle the oval office. he stood toe to toe with donald trump, a strong personality and had a few good moments. donald trump, on the other hand, who is ahead in the polls almost everywhere, even a little bit in iowa in recent ones had good moments himself. remember, debates were supposed to be his great time of pearlril that everyone that he gets through is another one where he has missed an opportunity for something to get wrong and his 9/11 answer is something a lot of people were talk being. >> for the first time that i can recall i saw donald trump get booed at the debate when he brought up the birther issue. do you think this is effective in him, even innocent booing he said they are not booing about that, they are booing about the polls. >> he has been booed once before it which is they donald trump. for his supporters that's what they like about him.
7:14 am
number of different exchanges, again, that's sort of a theater review, but sometimes these debates are theater reviews. so there was a lot for trump supporters who like in his performance last night and i think even in the booing moment they probably found something they liked there, too. >> john, did cruz take a risk do you think about his comment about trump's new york values? >> i don't think so. because really they're pitching to slightly different audiences. when ted cruz talks about new york values he is talking to the evangelicals who are voting in iowa and saying he is not one of you. that's quite effective to sew those seeds of doubt. donald trump has being try to do it by questioning whether evangelicals come out of cuba and that sort of thing. he is taking a page from the trump playbook. >> john will preview sunday's democratic debate on face the nation.
7:15 am
guests. >> june of the winners of a record powerball drawing may have some forward this morning. we don't know who bought the ticket in california and florida but a tennessee couple claims they have the ticket sold in that state. we are inside the grocery store in tennessee where the ticket was sold. >> reporter: good morning. john robinson walked up to this counter when he bought those tickets and the young girl who is in high school who sold him the tickets used this computer right here. it was wednesday night before the drawing, shortly before when his wife told him, hey, stop by the grocery store and get us four tickets, one for me and you and our son and daughter. the surveillance video shows him walking up to the counter, you see the woman standing in front of him, he shows four fingers, snakes small talk, pays the bill and walks out of the store. here is dana nafey, she owns the grocery store.
7:16 am
wait to hear the story from the winner. >> why is this a big deal? >> this is part of history, the biggest powerball ever and we sold it in our store, our little store. it's amazing watching his life change in that instant when he got that winning ticket and knowing what it's done for him and his family. >> and now dana is about to make every employee in the store happy with the $25,000 bonus they were given from the tennessee lottery every employee gets $50 but the young girl who sold the winning ticket she got $100 this morning. she was in school, she was brought over from the school to the store, she thought she might be in trouble but in fact she was surprised with the big news and a $100 bill. we have confirmed the family which claims to have that winning ticket is headed to nashville where they will present their ticket this afternoon and claim their prize. >> thanks a lot. a nurse in california is a victim of what you could call a very cruel lottery hoax. the woman reportedly received a call at work from her son on
7:17 am
won the massive powerball jackpot. he then even sent a picture of what he said was the winning ticket. the news set off a celebration at the nursing home, only when the mother of seven returned from work did she learn that the whole story was a prank. boy, would i have something to say to my son like when did you -- where did you learn to be to mean. >> yeah. >> terrible thing to do. >> wow. >> terrible. stock prices on wall street are dropping again this morning in early trading. the markets face a third straight week of declines because of negative economic news, including the falling price of oil. oil futures fell below $30 a barrel this morning, the dow jones industrial average dropped more than 2% after the markets opened. the nasdaq hit its lowest point in nearly five months. the s&p 500 is also close to a five-month low. all right. secretary of defense ash carter
7:18 am
detained by iran obviously had misnavigated misnavigated. iran held the sailers for less than 24 hours after he strayed into iranian waters on tuesday. iranian state tv showed video of the sailers kneeling. carter said that the u.s. would not have done that in similar circumstances. a chinese company this morning is in a multi-billion dollar deal to buy an iconic amerian appliance maker. china's hire group will pay $5.4 billion for general electric's appliance brand, the deal makes hire a major player in the american market. ge's century old appliance business is second only to whirlpool in the u.s. ge is shifting its focus to products like power turbines, jet engines and oil and gas equipment. they are the unlikely stars of making a murder on netflix, the two defense lawyers at the center of the true crime series are hitting back at critics.

"the new york times" reports on goldman sachs agreeing to pay up to $5 billion for its role in the sale of faulty mortgages in the early days of the financial crisis. it's part of a settlement with federal prosecutors and
7:31 am
goldman is one of the last wall street firms to reach a civil settlement. "usa today" says the military is ready to hand out punishment for safety failures in the shipping of live anthrax from an army lab. samples from mistakenly sent to other labs for more than a decade to a utah lab. a dozen people including a brigadier general could lose their jobs. the detroit news reports michigan's governor asked the president to declare a federal emergency in flint because of the water crisis there. lead contaminated flint's drinking water when the switched to the flint river to save money. yesterday in lansing protesters demanded the governor resign his office has defended his role. the oregonian reports chipotle meeting with all of its employees over food safety. on february 8th the chain will

will discuss a range of issues from improvements in food safety, the chain is trying to reassure customers. james strang and jerry butane the defense lawyers prominently featured in netflix "making a murder"er are here in studio 57 for their first interview together since it premiered last month: the series raises questions about whether their client was wrongfully convicted of murder in 2007. "making a murder" remember the latest through crime drama sweeping the country has become one of the netflix most successful certificatesees ever. it tells the story of steven avery, a wisconsin man who spent 18 years in prison for a rape he didn't commit. dna evidence exonerated him in 2003 but two years later avery was arrested again, this time for the murder of photographer
7:33 am
remains were found steps from avery's trailer. his lawyers argued he had been framed by some of the same investigators who helped wrongfully convict him the same time, planting evidence and coaxing avery's teenage nephew into making a false confession. >> guilty of first degree intentional homicide. >> a jury of 12 didn't believe them. but hundreds of thousands of "making a murder" fans now do, turning strang and butane into unlikely internet heart throbs in the process. critics including pros turt ken kratz say the series is -- >> the filmmakers deny this, although they also have doubts about avery's conviction. >> is he guilty beyond a nothing i have seen nd i have convinced me of that. >> only on "cbs this morning" dean strang and jerry butane are with us, good morning, heart throbs.
7:34 am
pen e. when you heard that word sneefr time. >> the prosecutor says the filmmakers purposely left out key facts in this documentary, including evidence that avery's dna was found under the hood of teresa's car. why do you think they left that evidence out? >> the movie gives a very lavish three hours plus to one trial. the trial went over 200 hours. >> yeah. >> i guess, you know, if the prosecutor and the police are really secure in the convictions they obtained, i wondered why they sounded so insecure about a movie that necessarily couldn't run 200 hours. >> but in the case of teresa hallback we've heard, too, that he called her cellphone three times on the day that she was murdered. why was this left out of this series? that's important information i would think. >> it is and it isn't. they try to make -- the state now is trying to make a lot of these pieces that weren't in the
7:35 am
really were. it's nonsense to say that large parts of the state's case were left out. with regard to this, for instance, also left out was the fact that he called and made an appointment to the office. if he had her cellphone number and he was trying to lure her, why would you call the office and create a paper trail? you would just call her directly and no one would ever know that she had come there. instead he goes through the office. >> and just remind people how did they know each other? >> she had been at the avery salvage yard, i don't know, five or six other times to take pictures of other vehicles that they were selling. in this instance it was his sister's vehicle and so his sister's name was left as the person on the account to whose car was being sold but the address was avery road and she had -- >> well, she said i'm going to see the avery brothers. >> yes. so she knew where she was going, there was nothing sinister or unexpected about how that was arranged. >> how do you explain the other
7:36 am
dna was found on the victim's hood. it's interesting that dna exonerated him in the other case and now the dna is being used in this case to possibly incriminate him in this crime. >> first of all, the prosecutor has said that sweat dna, quote/unquote, sweat dna was found on the hood and there is no such thing as sweat dna or per separation dna. where it comes from they can't tell. >> it's transferred from something that may or may not have been from him. >> are you convinced of his innocence? are both of you convinced of his innocence? >> i'm not convinced of his guilt. i'm not at all convince ds of his guilt. never have been. >> that's not quite the same thing. you're saying there is some doubt in your mind. absolutely. if it was okay to convict people on maybes, i wouldn't be worried about this, but it's not. >> your team says that law enforcement may have planted evidence on avery. what do you think they planted and what proof do you have? >> i think the documentary
7:37 am
there's one whole episode deals with the evidence of where we thought the evidence wants towards planting, the key that wasn't found until the sixth or seventh search of this little trail. >> reporter: in a small area? >> in a small area in plain view, the key which by the way did not have her house keys or her keys to her studio. >> and didn't have her dna on it. >> and didn't have her dna on it. the evidence that the bones had clearly been moved. they were found part of them in a burn barrel at a residence 200 yards away and more bones in a quarry. >> how do you see this turning out? right now he is in prison how do you see this resolving itself. >> do you think this is just it? >> essay sem blng a legal team which is job one at this point. i think his best hope lies in newly discovered evidence. >> we've received e-mails from scientists all over the world, i have had at least 100 different e-mails now from different
7:38 am
this and said, hey, you know, the science has really improved, there is a lot more that can be done in terms of edta testing that was a big part of the case and other types of blood tests that might be able to prove that this blood did not come from him actively bleeding in her car. >> fascinating. it's got everybody watching. thank you so much for being here. thank you. and "making a murder"er being he had streamed on netflix. academy award critics have a new hashtag this morning, oscars still so white. the outrage over another year of actor nominees with no diversity. that's coming up next and you're watching "cbs this morning." of actors nominees with no

the academy of motion picture arts and sciences promised changes a year ago after oscar voters nominated only white actors and actresses in the top categories. but the academy is under fire again this morning for a lack of diversity. all the nominees this this year's acting categories are white and all the nominees for best director are men.
7:43 am
look at the oscar backlash. michelle, good morning. >> good morning. the academy has long been criticized for its predominantly white membership, it has vowed to change that image but thursday's oscar nominations along with what critics call the snubbing of these stars and others put that lack of diversity into crystal clear focus. 12 oscar nominations pushed the critically acclaimed film the revenant into the pot light thursday. >> i'm just living in your crib. >> but critics say the relevant headline is those who didn't make the cut for hollywood's highest honor. >> change the situation. >> among the biggest snubs for best picture, "straight outta compton" failed to get a nod despite grossing more than $200 million worldwide. ice cube is one of the film's producer. >> it's all good, we didn't make that movie for the oscars, we

8:04 am
inequality where the rich are getting richer and everybody else is getting poorer, we don't need to give hundreds of billions of tax breaks to the people at the top, we need to stand up for working families and that's what i intend to do. >> but first you have to beat hillary clinton in the prime minister. -- primary. you released this ad yesterday saying that the clinton campaign is playing negative. let's take a look at it. >> there are two democratic versions for regulating wall street. one says it's okay to make millions from big banks and then tell them to what to do. my plan, close the banks, close up the tax loopholes and make them pay their fair share. >> you promised not to run a negative ad during this campaign. have you broken your promise? >> i think everyone who looks at that ad understands that it's not a negative ad. >> hillary clinton says it's
8:05 am
president obama too. >> i know that's what hillary e clinton says, but hillary clinton is not right. did you see any picture of hillary clinton in there? did you hear anything from hillary clinton? for many years there's been a division within the democratic party. we have had a whole section of the democratic party that is pro wall street, that gets money from wall street. that works very hard for to thehe deregulation of wall street, like what we had in 2008 when millions of people lost their homes and their jobs. i have throughout my life stood up to wall street. i think we need to bring back legislation, and we need to break up the major financial institutions on wall street whose greed and recklessness is harming america, that's my view. there are other people within the democratic party who disagree.

times" says you're more than 30% ahead of hillary clinton among voters under the age of 35. but most young people don't turn out on election day. do you think you can get them to the polls on election day? >> that's something we're working very hard on. when we began this campaign, we were at 3% in the national polls. we are closing the gap with secretary clinton, we are doing very, very well, i think in new hampshire and we're doing well in iowa, we're doing well in nevada. but clearly, it is one thing, as we understand to bring out a whole lot of young people to rallies, to get them excited, it's another thing to make sure that people come out for the caucuses in iowa or the new hampshire primaries. we are mounting an extraordinarily strong

states, our job is to create a large voter turnout. i think we can do that, if we can do that, we win. >> you have brought out a lot of promises in this campaign, including a single payer health care plan. you have not said how you're going to do that. you promised to release that plan on february 1. >> that plan is based on legislation that i introduced in 2013, so it's there, it's a long and complicated bill. but it's out there. what has happened in the last three years is good news is that the cost of health care inflation has declined. and in fact, our single payer medicare will now cost less than we originally thought. here is the bottom line. the bottom line is that the united states today is the only major country on earth that doesn't guarantee health care to all people. >> how do you may for it is the question? >> is it going to raise taxes? >> right now we have medicare, a
8:08 am
program for seniors, paid through by a medicare premium, that's what people pay. we would have a medicare premium for all a people and zero private health insurance. private health insurance premiums, so the average middle class family would sea a reduction in their health care costs by many thousands of dollars. >> so the middle class would have to increase taxes on them in order to pay for this plan? >> but they a're not going to be paying any private health insurance premiums, they will be paying medicare premiums just as seniors do today. >> the good news is senator sanders, you still have more time to make your point. this campaign continues for sure. thank you very much for taking the time with us this morning, we certainly appreciate that. >> thank you. he missed a field goal that could have kept the vikings postseason alive. but kicker blair walsh is still

you're listening to the sounds of jazz saxophone with jimmy green who was standing right behind president obama last week when the president announced his executive action on guns. green lost his little daughter anna in the school shooting in connecticut. the song was inspired by her and has been nominated for two grammys.
8:32 am
i've been listening to the album ever since you gave it to me. i have to tell you, jimmy, it was hard for me to listen to. i can't imagine what that process was like for you. >> you know, music is like a language. for me music is for when words don't suffice. for me it was a necessary expression, just like talking is a necessary expression. >> reporter: two years after his daughter anna was killed in the school shooting at sandy hook elementary school. saxophone player jimmy green released "it's a beautiful life". >> i would find him in anna's room, locked in, either practicing music or writing music in tears. so i didn't know what he was doing, but i knew he was doing something. they say after a trauma, there's three normal responses, fight,

and what jimmy did, and what he's showing people is that there's something else to do and that's create. >> it was nominated for two grammys, but when you think of the subject matter, are you conflict got that? >> i'm honored, it's the biggest honor you get in the music industry. of course at my core, i wish i never had to make an album like this. i wish my little girl were here. >> you have a song "seventh can cannedle. >> evident cannedle is written around anna's seventh birthday
