2:30 am
>> announcer: this is the "cbs overnight news." welcome to the overnight news. i'm reena ninan. for months now hillary clinton and donald trump have engaged in a sort of political shadow boxing, throwing jabs at each otheon well, tonight the bell rings for real with the first presidential debate of this election season. the verbal slugfest comes as the race tightens. the latest "washington post"/abc news poll has clinton and trump just about tied, with 46% for clinton and 44% for trump. a new cbs poll shows clinton holding her lead in virginia and colorado. those are two key battleground states. our poll shows trump leading in missouri, a state which has voted republican in recent
2:31 am
some analysts believe tonight's debate could be one of the most watched television events ever. jan crawford has more. >> reporter: getting ready for a presidential debate, it usually involves hours just locked inside a hotel conference room where they're running through every possible scenario. so we set up our own makeshift debate prep headquarters to talk to two political strategists about how it all works and what both candidates need to do to win. >> so they say she's been practici t >> reporter: trump had a full schedule this week, traveling to the battleground states of north carolina, ohio, and pennsylvania instead of prepping for the debate. >> how's the debate prep going right now? >> well, i'm here at geno's. >> reporter: clinton on the other hand has been holed up with her top advisers preparing for what her campaign believes will be the single most consequential event leading up to election day.
2:32 am
campaign this is the only one where the american people are judging both candidates side by side and next to each other. so it's less about scoring points and more about what kind of impression you leave. >> reporter: democratic strategist michael feldman helped run al gore's 2000 presidential campaign. we sat down with him and republican strategist dan senor, who helped romney prepare for his 2012 debate against president obama to find out what goes into winning. >> the best debaters, i have found, the best performers are the ones who say i'm not going to win or lose this debate on this detail or that detail, it's the general impression i make. >> reporter: of the two candidates trump is more difficult to predict. and unlike his opponent he's never gone head to head with just one other candidate, a physically exhausting task. >> it's a very physical experience. >> 90 minutes. one on one with -- >> no breaks, no distractions, no ads. >> standing up. >> it's exhausting. >> reporter: these strategists predict that monday's debate could change the contours of the 2016 race. with over 60% of voters
2:33 am
high. >> it is the super bowl of american politics. >> and if it were hillary clinton against jeb bush, or hillary clinton against marco rubio or whomever, sure, it would be the first debate would be a big deal. but hillary clinton against donald trump, it's a show of epic proportions. >> and maybe unlike anything we've ever seen. >> yes. >> reporter: now, already this year's debate is unprecedented. this is the first presidential debate ever between a man and a woman. >> cbs news will have primetime coveragef debate beginning at 9:00 p.m. eastern. john dickerson discussed the event with the vice presidential candidates tim kaine and mike pence for "face the nation." >> some of hillary clinton's supporters say there is a different standard for hillary clinton. what is that different standard in the debate? >> well, i'm not sure -- i'm hoping there isn't a different standard in the debate, john. i think there's been some worry that maybe up to now there's been different standards applied. but that's the great thing about the debate.
2:34 am
grilled on specifics. hillary has been very specific about policy plans. we have a book out describing them. donald trump less so. but tomorrow is an opportunity to see whether donald will be specific about what he proposes to do. second, unanswered questions. the voters have questions. donald trump hasn't released his tax returns. news of this questions about donald trump's ties to russia. and finally, there's been news recently about very questionable, even illegal payments by the trump foundation. i think these unanswered questions are going to be on voters' minds. and then finally there's the issue of truthfulness. politifact has been tracking donald trump's claims on the campaign trail. thus far about 70% of the things they checked turn out to be false. so that's an interesting point about the debate tomorrow night too. in a 90-minute format, not 20-second sound bites, there's a real opportunity to hear somebody say something and then
2:35 am
so i think the debate issue, obviously let it be an even standard for both. but that issue about specifics, answering those unanswered questions, and checking people on truthfulness, that's going to be very important. >> i noticed the campaign put out a list already of 18 or so questions of -- or falsehoods about donald trump they put out. that's about donald trump. but hillary clinton, everything she says in the campaign, that will be in the debate, everything she says will be truthful? >> i think that's fair game. it's fair game for both candidates to be challenged either on things that they said or things that they say tomorrow night. and again, i think the great virtue of these debates is you get 90 minutes to look at people and really see whether there's depth, whether there's substance, and whether there's candor and truthfulness in what they say. >> any advice you've given hillary clinton before the
2:36 am
the debates, both of our debates, but more in the area of kind of tone and style and how to effectively make your positive case even while parrying what the other guy throws at you. >> governor, most candidates would be hitting the books. donald trump has been out campaigning almost just like regular. so how has he been preparing for the debates? >> i think donald trump has been preparing for this debate for his entire lifetime. he's built a great business. he's traveled the country. and particularly in this campaign, john. as you saw last night in roanoke, virginia donald trump has been out among the american people. i think he's given voice to the frustrations and aspirations of the american people like no american leader in my lifetime since ronald reagan. and i think all of that is going to combine and come together. and i'm looking forward to seeing this good man, my running mate, step on that stage and present his message to make america great again to the american people. >> and he suggests the moderators shouldn't fact check
2:37 am
>> well, i think we all had the experience a few years ago of mitt romney being interrupted and being challenged on an assertion that he made. i believe it was about the tragedy in benghazi. and it turned out the moderator was wrong. i think the important thing is that the american people hear from these two candidates. the choice in this campaign could not be more clear. in donald trump we have a leader who literally embodies the american spirit, who wants to change the direction of this country through rebuilding our military, less taxes, less regulation, repealing obamacare, standing by our constitution. and hillary clinton literally offers a third obama term, more of the same, more taxes, more regulation, more obamacare, more of the war on energy and more of the policies that have weakened america's place in the world. we need to hear from these two candidates and i hope and trust that the moderators will just facilitate that. >> and governor, donald trump
2:38 am
tell you the truth." do you expect that everything he says in the debate on monday night will be truthful? >> i think donald trump always speaks straight from his m unlike ordinary diapers, pampers stay up to three times drier, so babies can sleep soundly all night. pampers. (coughs) that cough doesn't sound so good. well i think you sound great. move over. easy booger man. take mucinex dm. it'll take care of your cough.
2:39 am
one pill lasts 12 hours, so... looks like i'm good all night! ah! david, please, listen. still not coughing. not fair you guys! waffles are my favorite! ah! some cough medicines only last 4 hours. but just one mucinex lasts 12 hours. start the relief. ditch the misery. let's end this. mmm... i can't believe it's so delicious. i can't believe it has 40% fewer calories than butter. i can't believe it's made with real, simple ingredients. i can't believe we're on a whale. i can't believe my role isn't bigger. oh, it's real. real ingredients. unbelievable taste.

2:52 am
? it makes you cry ? ? you are my sunshine ? ? my only sunshine ? >> reporter: as host of "sunday morning" charlie was able to explore his wildest musical fantasies. he performed at the grand ole opry. ? and played banjo with the boston pops. he played the organ at yankee stadium. ? and other exotic instruments. >> it's actually half a piano and half a zither. well, you're one of about 20 people who have played it. ? i'm dreaming of a white christmas ? >> reporter: and he'd end every

in syria there's little hope a broken cease-fire will be revived. since late last week russian warplanes and troops have been hammering syria's largest city, aleppo. elizabeth palmer was in aleppo when the attacks resumed. >> reporter: at the start of the party from a rooftop, when the war reignited. those are shells falling on rebel-held aleppo, just after the syrian army declared the ce cease-fire was over. soon the warplanes were up, too, bombing. the number of dead and wounded, which had fallen to almost zero, rocketed up. the front line of this civil war runs right through the center of aleppo. armed opposition fighters

regime forces and their allies are here. 13-year-old aya lives on the very edge of the government side. this curtain here, what's that for? >> translator: snipers. >> reporter: the snipers, just a few hundred yards away, are opposition fighters who over the past four years have aimed their weapons at syrian army positions deep in this neighborhood. did you lose some friends in this war? "some were killed by mortars or snipers. some just left the country." many of those who didn't make a run for it are now living in the ruins of war in desperate need. the cease-fire was supposed to let humanitarian aid reach them. but the main delivery route into aleppo has been a battleground for months. to let the aid flow all sides, including the syrian army, were supposed to pull back.
3:12 am
secure the road failed. in a war this savage it's hard to sort fact from fiction. and it got even harder this week when a u.s. airstrike hit syrian soldiers. by mistake, said the pentagon. a few days later a red crescent aid convoy was attacked. >> you see? pampers as aid from the u.n. >> reporter: the u.s. say indications showed the russians were responsible, something moscow furiously denied. but public opinion in this country is shaped by syrian state media. and the villain on its airwaves is always the united states. syrians also believe that america can make a big difference to the outcome of this war. and that the u.s. has a responsibility to use its diplomatic muscle and its power to help bring peace.
3:13 am
damascus. well, terence crutcher has been laid to rest in tulsa. the 40-year-old father of four was unarmed when he was shot and killed by a police officer on september 16th. that officer, betty shelby, has been charged with first-degree manslaughter. crutcher's family says they're determined to get justice. a tragic loss for major league baseball. miami marlins ace pitcher jose fernandez has been killed along with two friends in a boating accident off miami. fernandez survived a harrowing journey to the u.sm become one of the game's best. marlins manager don mattingly paid tribute to his fallen star. >> i see such a little boy in him when -- with the way he played. when you watch kids play little league or something like that, that's the joy that jose played with. and the passion he felt about playing. that's what i think about. >> the marlins canceled sunday's

3:19 am
>> the word of central intelligence agency of united states over this issue means no, zero. nothing. they lied. just forget about them. >> reporter: putin has said hacking the dnc was a good thing. >> it appears that he's condoning the hacking. >> yeah. it's exactly -- i agree. hackers attacks about politicians, very good. >> what if his own united russia party had been hacked into? how would he react then? >> negatively. because it's his party. >> reporter: during the eleche president putin were banned from appearing on state-controlled television. but images of donald trump and the american elections have been getting plenty of air time. charlie d'agata, cbs news, moscow. up next, a world land speed record for an electric car.

finally tonight, in 1950 around the time charles osgood started classes at fordham university in the box a recent fordham graduate named vin scully was starting his broadcasting career with the brooklyn dodgers. ofhe beloved announcer. here's mireillea villareal. >> it's time for dodger baseball. >> reporter: vin scully's voice is the soundtrack of so many historic moments. he was there in 1974 when hank aaron broke babe ruth's home run record. >> a black man is getting a standing ovation in the deep south. >> reporter: he painted a picture of the game the way shakespeare would right a play.
3:28 am
memorable. >> and the game is going on and going on. and then out of the corner of my eye i said -- >> and look who's coming up. >> and here he comes, hobbling. >> he is gone! in a year that has been so improbable, the impossible has happened. >> reporter: it was the way he guided listeners through each game that won over generations of baseball fans. for at least nine innings his words transported them from dugout or onto the pitcher's mound. for the past 67 years, from brooklyn to los angeles. >> go dodgers. >> reporter: this weekend fans filed into dodger stadium to honor him. angel rodriguez is a walking tribute. >> he's like family. there's nobody here that has not listened to vin. >> reporter: on vin scully appreciation day it was actually vin that was pitching out this gift. 50,000 letters went out to baseball fans thanking them for
3:29 am
listening. dennis murphy drove five hours from san francisco to share this moment with his daughter. what is it about him that makes him the best? >> you know, i think it's just the way he brings the game to life. the experience of the game of baseball. and just the calm nature of his voice. >> reporter: in one week scully will call his final game in san francisco. but this afternoon he signed off one last time from dodger stadium. >> leave it to the charlie culverson a game-winning home run. >> reporter: baseball is described as a boy's game played by men. if that holds true, then vin scully will be forever young. his voice echoing through history for millions of fans to come. mireya villareal, cbs news, dodger stadium. >> and that's the overnight news for this monday. for some of you the news continues. for others check back with us in just a short time for the morning news and "cbs this morning." from the broadcast center in new
3:30 am
>> announcer: this is the "cbs overnight news." welcome to the overnight news. i'm reena ninan. for months now hillary clinton and donald trump have engaged in a sort of political shadow boxing, throwing jabs at each other on the stump, well, tonight the bell rings for real with the first presidential debate of this election season. the verbal slugfest comes as the race tightens. the latest "washington post"/abc news poll has clinton and trump just about tied, with 46% for clinton and 44% for trump. a new cbs poll shows clinton holding her lead in virginia and colorado. those are two key battleground states. our poll shows trump leading in missouri, a state which has voted republican in recent
3:31 am
watched television events ever. jan crawford has more. >> reporter: getting ready for a presidential debate, it usually involves hours just locked inside a hotel conference room where they're running through every possible scenario. so we set up our own makeshift debate prep headquarters to talk to two political strategists about how it all works and what both candidates need to do to win. >> so they say she's been practicing for the debate. sleeping. >> reporter: trump had a full schedule this week, traveling to the battleground states of north carolina, ohio, and pennsylvania instead of prepping for the debate. >> how's the debate prep going right now? >> well, i'm here at geno's. >> reporter: clinton on the other hand has been holed up with her top advisers preparing for what her campaign believes will be the single most consequential event leading up to election day. >> of all the big moments in a campaign this is the only one
3:32 am
judging both candidates side by side and next to each other. so it's less about scoring points and more about what kind of impression you leave. >> reporter: democratic strategist michael feldman helped run al gore's 2000 presidential campaign. we sat down with him and republican strategist dan senor, who helped romney prepare for his 2012 debate against president obama to find out what goes into winning. >> the best debaters, i have found, the best performers are the ones who say i'm not going to win or lose this debate on this detail or that detail, the general impression i make. >> reporter: of the two candidates trump is more difficult to predict. and unlike his opponent he's never gone head to head with just one other candidate, a physically exhausting task. >> it's a very physical experience. >> 90 minutes. one on one with -- >> no breaks, no distractions, no ads. >> standing up. >> it's exhausting. >> reporter: these strategists predict that monday's debate could change the contours of the 2016 race. with over 60% of voters
3:33 am
temperament, expectations are high. >> it is the super bowl of american politics. >> and if it were hillary clinton against jeb bush, or hillary clinton against marco rubio or whomever, sure, it would be the first debate would be a big deal. but hillary clinton against donald trump, it's a show of epic proportions. >> and maybe unlike anything we've ever seen. >> yes. >> reporter: now, already this year's debate is unprecedented. this is the first presidential debate ever between a man and a woman. >> cbs news will have debate beginning at 9:00 p.m. eastern. john dickerson discussed the event with the vice presidential candidates tim kaine and mike pence for "face the nation." >> some of hillary clinton's supporters say there is a different standard for hillary clinton. what is that different standard in the debate? >> well, i'm not sure -- i'm hoping there isn't a different standard in the debate, john. i think there's been some worry that maybe up to now there's been different standards appl
3:34 am
points. first, the candidates get grilled on specifics. hillary has been very specific about policy plans. we have a book out describing them. donald trump less so. but tomorrow is an opportunity to see whether donald will be specific about what he proposes to do. second, unanswered questions. the voters have questions. donald trump hasn't released his tax returns. news of this past week shows a whole series of very serious questions about donald trump's ties to russia. and finally, there's beenew questionable, even illegal payments by the trump foundation. i think these unanswered questions are going to be on voters' minds. and then finally there's the issue of truthfulness. politifact has been tracking donald trump's claims on the campaign trail. thus far about 70% of the things they checked turn out to be false. so that's an interesting point about the debate tomorrow night too. in a 90-minute format, not 20-second sound bites, there's a real opportunity to hear somebody say something and then
3:35 am
obviously let it be an even standard for both. but that issue about specifics, answering those unanswered questions, and checking people on truthfulness, that's going to be very important. >> i noticed the campaign put out a list already of 18 or so questions of -- or falsehoods about donald trump they put ou that's about donald trump. but hillary clinton, everything she says in the campaign, that will be in the debate, everything she says will be truthful? >> i think that's it's fair game for both candidates to be challenged either on things that they said or things that they say tomorrow night. and again, i think the great virtue of these debates is you get 90 minutes to look at people and really see whether there's depth, whether there's substance, and whether there's candor and truthfulness in what they say. >> any advice you've given hillary clinton before the debate in. >> we've talked a little about the debates, both of our debates, but more in the area of
3:36 am
to effectively make your positive case even while parrying what the other guy throws at you. >> governor, most candidates would be hitting the books. donald trump has been out campaigning almost just like regular. so how has he been preparing for the debates? >> i think donald trump has been preparing for this debate for his entire lifetime. he's built a great business. he's traveled the country. and particularly in this as you saw last night in roanoke, virginia donald trump has been out among the american people. i think he's given voice to the frustrations and aspirations of the american people like no american leader in my lifetime since ronald reagan. and i think all of that is going to combine and come together. and i'm looking forward to seeing this good man, my running mate, step on that stage and present his message to make america great again to the american people. >> and he suggests the moderators shouldn't fact check
3:37 am
>> well, i think we've all had the experience a few years ago of mitt romney being interrupted and being challenged on an assertion that he made. i believe it was about the tragedy in benghazi. and it turned out the moderator was wrong. i think the important thing is that the american people hear from these two candidates. the choice in this campaign could not be more clear. in donald trump we have a leader who literally embodies the american spirit, who wants to change the country through rebuilding our military, less taxes, less regulation, repealing obamacare, standing by the constitution. and hillary clinton literally offers a third obama term, more taxes, more regulation, more obamacare, more of the war on energy and more the of the policy that's weakened america's place in the world. we need to hear from these two candidates and i hope and trust that the moderators will just facilitate that. >> and governor, donald trump has said recently i will always
3:38 am
night will be truthful? >> i think donald what are you doing right now? making a cake! uh oh. i don't see cake, i just see mess. it's like awful. it feels like am not actually cleaning it up. what's that make mommy do? (doorbell) what's that? swiffer wetjet. this is amazing. woah wow. now i feel more like making a mess is part of growing up. only new wetjet pads have absorb and lock leaning. start swiffering. red 97! set! red 97! did you say 97? yes.

well, we at cbs are saying good-bye to a broadcast legend, charles osgood. he spent nearly half a century right here at cbs. the last 22 years as host of "sunday morning." charles is handing the microphone to jane pauley. his final show was yesterday rita braver has a look back at his life and his legacy. >> here it is, right here. nature's cooling system. the great american elm tree. >> reporter: whether describing a national treasure or deploring the plight of the homeless. >> being cold is not an abstraction but a reality you can feel in your bones. and the only ming that mthing t is to escape from the cold, and
3:41 am
he wants us to take a closer look. >> let's see if he's there. >> you rang? >> and maybe in some cases to be angry or amused or sort of shake your head about this crazy world. and by the way, it is a crazy world. >> reporter: which helps explain how an economics major at fordham university in the bronx -- >> were the call letters the same when you were here? >> yes, theywe campus radio station. >> i spent more time here than i did in classrooms or doing homework. >> reporter: he started as a classical music dj in washington, d.c. but at some point you moved to become a news reporter. what was the inspiration for that? >> there was a job that was available, and i knew how to get it. >> his first big-time news job was at abc.
3:42 am
>> then in 1967 he joined wcbs radio in new york. >> well, today mrs. martin is the proud possessor of a plant that towers like jack's bean stalk, looks like a tomato plant, and is nicknamed fred. >> reporter: his distinctive style soon landed him a job at the cbs network. >> the osgood file. this is charles osgood. >> reporter: and in 1971 he launched one of the longest-running features in radio history. what came to be known as "the osgood file." >> edward r. murrow sure knew how to use his voice on the radio. >> reporter: several stories a day in two-minute segments that are surprisingly complex to craft. >> see you on the radio. i say that every week. a peculiar phrase some people think to speak. i've got a piece of mail or two on my shelf saying this sentence seems to contradict itself.
3:43 am
short paragraphs. there's nothing that can't be improved by making it shorter and better. >> reporter: when the idea of television was presented to you, was that exciting for you or foreboding? >> it scared me to death. it just about scared me to death. >> good evening. time's running out to get the hostage crisis -- >> reporter: in fact, he says the first time he anchored a broadcast he got some constructive criticism from the legendary mike wallace. >> he said you looked like you had gone into the room to the waste basket and you looked up and you saw walter chair. so you said oh and you went and sat in his chair and you said to yourself i hope nobody catches me doing, this i hope nobody's watching. >> reporter: but soon he realized -- >> good evening, i'm charles osgood. >> reporter: -- he just needed to be himself on camera. >> it takes two to tango but more than two to make any kind
3:44 am
if you're not comfortable. >> reporter: in 1994 charles osgood took over "sunday morning" from the venerable charles kuralt. >> good morning. i'm charles osgood, and this is "sunday morning." i know it sounds strange to me too, but here we are. >> reporter: you've got to know that the audience came to not just accept you but to really be very fond of you. what t started to realize that? >> i think if you you do something every week and if you fill up their homes, then they get to know you. they're not even surprised when you knock on the door and say may i come in. ? ? we have actors and artists ? ? not just politicians ? ? >> reporter: in the 22 years since charles osgood has taken us to cuba, explored the american architectural
