taken into custody and held overnight at an iranian base on the eyelid of farsi. speaking on state tv, the naval chief for the iranian revolutionary guard said the american vessels were engaged in unprofessional acts before being picked up and t t sailors were taken into custody without much resistance. >> some of the only people in america -- >> reporter: any mention of the detainment was left out of president obama's state of the union address as u.s. officials worked to confirm the status of the crew. on tuesday, secretary of state john kerry spoke directly with his iranian counterpart and was personally assured the sailors would be well-treated. >> we have received assurances from the iranians both that our sailors are safe. we have also, most importantly, received assurances that they will be allowed to continue their journey promptly. >> reporter: the sailors were on board navy riverine command boat which do not normally carry sensitive equipment. the incident comes twowo weeks
7:05 am
guard ships fired off rockets within a mile of the amecan aircraft carry "harry s. truman" as it entered the gulf. the rockets were away from the shift but drew a strong protest from the u.s. the navy will now conduct an investigation but the u.s. seems intent on getting thihi incident behind them asasuickly as possssle. defense secretary carter released a statement saying, we appreciate the timely way in which this situation was resolved. >> thank you, david. 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 d dended his record and, again, called for a change in the political climate. margaret brennan is at the white house with the key moments. >> reporter: good morning. well, president obama told his staff back in november that he wants this last state of the union to feel a lot like his
7:06 am
a reflective to-do list for the next generation. he tried to reassure anxious americans and admitted what he thinks is one of his failures. >> it's one of the few regrets of my presidency that the rancor and suspicion between the parties have gotten worse, instead of better. >> reporter: in this election year address, it was difficult to keep 2016 politics out of the chamber. president obama was pointed in trying to tear down some of the claims of those republicans hoping to replace him. >> anyone claiming that america's economy is in decline is peddling fiction. our answer needs to be more than tough talk. more calls to carpet bomb civilians. over the top claims that this is world ward iii plays into their hands. >> reporter: mr. obama says he understands why voters are frustrated with politics. >> the democracy breaks down
7:07 am
their voice doesn't matter. but that is the system is rigged in favor of the powerful or some special interest. >> reporter: in the gop response, south carolina governor nikki haley di missed 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 controversial tone of its presidential contenders. >> during anxious times, it can be tempting to follow the siren call of the angriest voices. we must resist that temptation. >> reporter: and the president announced one final ambitious goal -- a so-called moon shot to cure cancer. that appeared to surprise the vice president who lost a son to the disease last year. >> i'm putting joe in charge of mission control. for the loved ones we have all loved, for the families that we
7:08 am
america the country that cures cancer once and for all. what do you say, joe? >> reporter: with a fan fare 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. i always lik that. that is kind of cool. >> reporter: today, the president will sound a lot like candidate obama, as he flies to nebraska and louisiana to promote this message of hope and change once again. and, charlie, you can expect the white house to change their communication strategy in the months to come. they promise more town hall style events to have the president appear to be speaking with the public and not at them. >> thanks, margaret. the vice president of the united states joe biden is with us from washington. mr. vice president, good morning. >> happy to be here, charlie. >> speaker ryan said if everything was as great as the president said it would,
7:09 am
wrong track. is there a disconnect? >> i think two reasons, charlie. one, the blowback from the recession still left a lot of middle class people who lt their homes to more in the stock market and didn't back in as it came back up, the job stagnation and wage stagnation. i think the president explained it fairly well with these international changes taking place with globalization and the way things are moving, and we have to adjust. this is a new period, and so there is understandable frustration, understanding concern. but there is no question, no question we are the most respected, most powerful nation in the world. there is no question that no one is as used to saying my neighborhood patch on our jeans, that doesn't mean there aren't real genuine concerns, particularly income and disparity and wage stagnation among the american people with
7:10 am
>> speaking of income disparity, secretary clinton, you have suggested, is late to the income and equality issue. why did you say that and what did you mean? does it suggest you were a part of the political debate? >> no, no. the context is always getting a little -- it gets reshaped and not intentional but gets reshaped in the re-telling. i was asked a question about bernie sanders and about hillary, and what i was saying was hillary has been secretary of state for five years before, almost five years before she ran for office. and prior tothat, 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 has never changed his position. and so it is -- there is a difference. i thinkome of the policies
7:11 am
with are very, very pro active and think would be very helpful to the middle class. i think she is moving in the right direction. but the comparison was she and bernie -- it wasn't that she's is not authentic, she is awe they wantic. it's this is what westerny has been talking about. if asked in the reverse why isn't bernie talking about women like hillary? this has been hillary's wheelhouse since ever she has been a public face in the united states. fighting for women. and so it doesn't mean he doesn't support women. it's just her wheelhouse. that is the contextxtn which the discussion took place. >> mr. vice president, obama said anyone claim's america's economy is in decline and is peddle be fiction. the facts are this. we have more than 47 million people living in poverty. household incomes has dramatically shifted to upper income americans from middle income americans. you have wages in this country
7:12 am
the ecocomy has gotten worse for manynymericans. is there a disconnect here? >> the overall economy is healthy. the dislocations and the concentration of wealth are dangerous. i remember having a discussion with you, charlie. >> yes. >> i pointed out an article from the university of massachusetts, a professor pointing out of the 4.7 trillion dolrs in profits from 2003 to 2013, 47 went back to buying stocks and 9% left for everything else. that is what barack and i have been fighting about. we have been saying you have to give great opportunities. corporate attitude have to changege no longer -- they act like they have no corporate responsibility for the community and no corporate responsibility to their employees. there has been a shift, a significant sift that is dangerous. and that is what is wrong with
7:13 am
but not the overall economy. the overall economy relatively to the rest of the world is by far the wealthiest economy. >> what wasn't mentioned last night was iran's detention of the ten u.s. sailors. we hear it is good news this morning. what happened with that? >> one of the boats had engine failure and drifted into iranian waters. the iranian picked up both boats as we have picked up iranian boats that needed to be rescued and took them to -- i'm not s se exactly where. i don't want to misspeak here. and realize they were there and distressed and said they were released them and they released them like ordinary nations would do. that is the way nations should do and that is why it's important should have channels open. >> should we apologize to the iranians? >> no. when you have a problem with a boat?
7:14 am
apol is this exactly what you're talking about? >> you know, i have respect for both of those women, but what i tell you is 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 obama hasn't done whether it's health care, whether it's the economy, whether it's the education, whether it's dividing the country but i was also critical about our own republicans and we can't assume we have no blame. >> governor, many people are applauding you for speaking very candidly and criticizing your own party. was that difficult for to you do? it's rare for people to do that. >> no, it wasn't. in south carolina i had to do that with my own party here in
7:15 am
you know, it's healthy when you can point out certain things that you feel were not in the best interest of your state or country. it's not personal. >> would you like to see a woman on the republican ticket? >> i don't think those things matter. i want a good strong ticket that makes the republican party proud. that is one that talks about the solutions to health care, the solutions to education, what we can do with tax reform, how we'll 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 good leadership. >> well said. >> governor haley, great to have you on this morning. thank you for joining us. >> thank you very much. >> "face the nation" moderator john dickerson joins us now from washington. john, , od morning. a lot of people are saying last night in part 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. what do you say about that? >> she's brought the country
7:16 am
agreement. the president was clearly aiming on him specifically on the ban on new muslims coming in to the country and nickykki haley was clearly talking about him. for somebody that likes attention that doesn't totally upset him. >> what does it mean for conservatives, particularly those on radio, lara ingram and others denouncing nikki haley saying she went too far. >> there's a huge debate whether people who are associated with the establishment are listening to and understand the grassroots. the establishment has been pretty quiet. this was a push back against that. and 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 go out and say this in a big and public rum. this wasn't t responseo the president. this was a response to the republican front-runner. >> turning to the democratic
7:17 am
sanders surge to us. >> enthusiasm among people who feel like while they like president obama, they still feel like this system is rigged and that was amazing last night, president obama in his speech used that expression twice to basicallllsay 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. within weather blasts huge areas of the country today ahead of the bitter conditions that

it is wednesday, january th, 2016. welcome back to "cbs this morning." more real news ahead, including president obama's state of the union call for civility. hillary clinton will give us her response. and my dear and good friend bill o'reilly is in studio 57 with his take on the presidential race. but first, here is today's "eye opener" at 8:00. >> the ten sailors were picked up and flown by helicopter to a u.s. military base where they will be debriefed. >> anyone claiming that america's economy is in decline is peddling fiction. >> the economy has gotten worse for many americans. is there a disconnect here? >> the overall economy is healthy. >> it can be tempting to follow
7:57 am
the angriest voices actually referred to a lot of things. certainly some of the things that mr. trump has said. >> the justice department has launched an investigation to figure out exactly how this man maeld made public health crisis ppened. >he wind is blowing here. it is dangerously close to lake erie. >> it will take less than a minute for the powerball drawing. it is the largest powerball drawing. >> good morning, gayle. it's great to be with all of you, thank you. >> you ended the curse. >> yes. >> the response curse. >> my number one goal was not to become a "saturday night live" skit. >> i'm charlie rose with gayle king and norah o'donnell. we are following breaking news from the persian gulf. ten american sailors held overnight by iran are back in the united states' hands. the iranian state television

who were detained. the pentagon says there is no dication they were harmed. >> two american boats were en route from kuwait to bahrain when they drifted into iranian waters. u.s. officials say that they suffered a mechanical breakdown. the sailors were allowed to leave on their own boats. president obama travels to nebraska today to spread his message from last night's state the union speech. the president defended his record in the white house and he said he will not let up on issues that still need to be addressed, such as immigration and gun violence. the president also admitted that his 2008 pledge to forge political unity had failed, but he said he is confident about the strength of the country and without naming of the presidential candidates, though, he contrasted his view of america with some of the campaign rhetoric. >> when politicians insult muslims, whether abroad or our
7:59 am
is vandalized or a kid is called names, that doesn't make uss safefe that's not telling it like it is. it's just wrong. it diminishes us in the eyes of the world. it makes us harder to achieve our goals. it betrays who we are as a country. >> south carolina governor nikki haley offered a similar m msage in her repububcan response to the president. >> during anxious times, it can be tempting to follow the siren call of the angriest voices. we must resist that temptation. no one who is willing to work hard, abide by our laws and love our traditions should ever feel unwelcome in this country. we mustix our broron immigration system. that means stopping illegal immigration, and it means
8:00 am
immigrants, regardless of their race or religion. just like we have for centuries. >> haley told us this morning she was calling out leaders of both parties because they all share responsibility to movee the country forward. hillary clinton tweeted her support for the president's speech this morning saying seven years of progress, we need to build on it, not go backwards. thank you, president obama. >> with us from washington, democratic presidential candidate and former secretary of state hillary clinton. madam secretary, good morning. >> good morning to all of you. >> the p psident made the case for his administration lasas night in the state of the union, yet 65% of americans think we're on the wrong track. is there disconnect between the president and the people? >> you know, charlie, i thought the president made a compelling case about the progress we've made, but the work that still lies ahead. and what i've been saying on the campaign is that we had a brutal
8:01 am
we're standing, we're not yet running, we have work to do, and i think this election is so consequential because there are two very different points of view between us and the republicans, and that's what people are going to have to choose between. >> but are they different points of view between you and the president about where the country is a a where it' going? >> i think that the president's views are ones that are rooted in a lot of reality. we have been adding new jobs, we are the strongest economy once again, as we have historically been. we remain the leader in the world ono manyy important issues. but, and there's a big but, and i think the president had a long laundry list of unfinished business that we need to be focused on. >> madam secretary, the latest poll numbers have your supporters a little worried tonight. they show that bernie sanders is surging, just seven points behind you now. how concerned are you about that? >> ilways expected that this
8:02 am
that's the experience that i've had certainly in politics. and i'm very happy about where my campaign is, what we are talking about, the reaction we're getting. it's going to be a campaign that goes right to the wire. i'm doing all that i can to reach out to as many people, to convince them to caucus for me in iowa and then to vote for me in the new hampshire primary and then to go on from there to south carolina and nevada. >> you're happy about your campaign and it seems so is bernie sanders. here's what he had to say about where you're doing. >> when you see that many attacks, and i'm sure that more will be coming, it is an indication that the clinton campaign is getting very, very nervous. you know, for many months they basically ignored us. well, guess what, they're not ignoring us right now, that's for sure. >> is this your nervous face, hillary clinton? >> no. and i just have a different sense of the rhythm of a campaign. i spent my campaign, you know,
8:03 am
people talk to me about, answering questions about what i would do as president. now we're in the sprint to the finish line. >> when you see the two new polls out this morning in iowa and new hampshire that suggest that bernie sanders is now ahead of you in those two key early states, madam secretary, what do you say when you see those numbers? >> i say what i say whenever i see any poll. it doesn't matter whether they have me a aad or not, i just don't pay that much attention to them. >> one of the four questions the president suggested for the country had to do with those who have and those who have not. vice president biden said -- suggested that you were a newcomer to the issue of income inequality. >> well, you know, i have the greatest respect for him, but i think anyone who looks at my record, starting when i went to work as a young lawyer for the children's defense fund working as a legal services lawyer all the way up to my public service
8:04 am
to even the odds for people all my life. >> but more people are in poverty today than they were when the president assumed office. >> well, charlie, that was because of the great recession. i mean look at what president bush inherited from my husband. 23 million new jobs, incomes going up for everyone, more people lifted out of poverer and they dismantlele it. they had huge tax cuts, wouldn't pay for the wars, took their eyes off the mortgage market and the financial market. yes, we fell into a gre recession, the worst financial crisis since the great depression. and it's been a challenge to dig us out of a ditch that the president had nothing to do with digging. and i'm very grateful that the auto industrtr was saved, that we have now recovered more than 13 million new jobs. but have we solved all the
8:05 am
going back to trickle down failed economic policies? no. we still have work to do. but i'm confident we're on the right track, and our economy is sure stronger t tn anybody else in the world right now. >> that's why a political campaign should be about the future. >> that's right. >> secretary clinton, thank you. >> great to talk to the three of you. bill o'reilly returns to studio 57 again today.

tonightar tonight marks the eighth year that i've come here to report on the state of the union.
8:10 am
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. his approval stands at 46%. 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
8:11 am
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 t t bs. and i'll give you an example. america is the most powerful nation in the world. yay! what good is the power if we don't use it wisely. chaos in the middle east. iran takes advantage of usus 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
8:12 am
>> 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 be tempting to follolow theiren 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.
8:13 am
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 muims, okay. that's not going to help us fight isis, but he didn't think it out. mexico, he was clearly talking about the corrupt mexican 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 thee republican people. >> can i ask a political

8:14 am
>> 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 he's running against cruz. 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.
8:15 am
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. >> you make the case that 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.

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.

"time" reports on drug lord el chapo blue shirt sales jumping. the seller says it's great for a night out. the striped shirt el chapo wore when he posed with the actor sean penn. high demand for the shirt caused the website to crash. >> that is quite a shirt. >> that looks like you, charlie rose. >> though shirts costs $128. i think it looks unbuttoned further down. >> or in the closet. leave it right there is what i was thinking! >> now back to the news? >> okay. britain's "guardian" reports on second ship wreck in the hunt for the missing malaysian flights 370. sonar image shows a wreck of a
8:22 am
two miles beneath the ocean's surface. last month crews found the wreckage of a cargo ship. the seattle times reports verizon recycled an old number to a law student. it last owned to sir lancelot best known for his song "baby got back." and the opening line, charlie knows, "i like big butts and i cannot lie!" . i'll say it again. i like big butts and i cannot lie. >> why didn't you say that yesterday? >> i don't know. >> we did a little thing, in case you're wondering. >> you didn't mention that i like big butts and i cannot lie. sir lancelot said they should give women his new number. >> do you know what you were getting into, jeremy? >> i have no idea where you're going with that song! >> we are going to draw the context between yelp and big

>> buckle up. >> first, an floupgsintroduction. >> if you're searching for the good place for pizza, a good place to turn. yelp. more than 11 years, more than 90 million critiques and they cover 32 countries. with success comes major challenges. >> i'll say. business owners have accused yelp for competitors paying for ads and customers have faced lawsuits over negative reviews. 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
8:24 am
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 there wasn't any negativity? 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.
8:25 am
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 somebody was fined $750,000. 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
8:26 am
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 getting the web any more. 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
8:27 am
>> 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. because they are making so much 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 apple 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
8:28 am
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
8:29 am
see what his role is it needs to be stronger. i have a passion for it. and ar like this faint smell of asparagus and like a nutty cheese. >> wow. >> strawberries? >> yeah. >> yeah. >> not the cheese. >> put your glass down. >> how about that? paul giamatti's trail of a wine lover made it clear he leading man material. now he is stepping into the world of fast pace finance in his new show "billions." he plays a u.s. attorney who

8:31 am
criminal that damian lewis plays. >> billionaire hedgefund guy? >> who is playing inside information. >> what about the reference to "50 shades of grey"? >> my character has a interesting lifestyle and interesting idea for all shows because all shows is about dominance and particularly male dominance. >> and between the two and power? >> yes, power. >> he has a submission gene? >> he has a submission gene because he has to be in control so much and we have to be dominant so much. >> paul, it opens with a kinky sex scene. we don't know you're a u.s. attorney. when you read that scene, you said i absolutely cannot do this? >> no. i absolutely want to do this! i'm really, really keen to do this! >> our guy. >> and can you film it? >> yeah, i am on this right now!
8:32 am
