7:09 am
to. involvement he gets to talk about bill clinton's personal life and bri hillary clinton's involvement in that. then the press talks about it up and brings it up and asks whether it's a problem or not. then it gets a big airing a biton of a chilling effect on the ne clinton campaign perhaps, and also one step away from him. he in the end if he has to actuallye's bring this up as he's already aign done several times in his as w campaign, he has that option as r well. >> what are the the risks here john? >> well the risks are that they had to offer optimistic vision alking of the future. ca right now on both sides we're a talking about a campaign that's de. going to be a referendum on the cam other side.l be the trump campaign will be about hillary clinton and hillary clinton's campaign will be about gets donald trump. the downside is everybody gets thoroughly turned off more than they already are. n >> whose campaign will be about t the future. >> one of them has to grab it.uld of course they would both say

"the washington post" reports on today's likely senate vote for just over a billion dollars to fight the zika virus. some of the money would fund vaccine development. a government map shows the pnlt range of the mosquitos that carry the virus. more than 500 travel-related cases have been reported
7:33 am
7:34 am
7:35 am
right now, there are only eight of these. >> david, thanks. amazon changed the way we shop online and stream video. "the wall street journal" reports the world's biggest retailer wants to shake up our run to the grocery store by expanding its private label brand. >> so you'll soon be able to buy amazon generic items like nuts coffee, and baby food and every day essentials like diapers and detergent. we reached out to amazon. they had no comment about this. melody hobson is at the table to dissect this. there have been jokes out there about it's jeff bezos' world domination plan to take over the world. does that surprise you? >> no not at all. one product at a time. >> but why this area now? >> because it's huge. $118 billion in private label goods were sold last year.
7:36 am
that was up 2 billion from the year before. expect it to grow again this year. they've been in the space. they've had amazon basics with things like mouse pads and cell phone cases. then they moved into clothing and jumped to number two as the clothing retailer in america behind macy's largely driven by their private label clothes. >> and they've been doing this privately. in february apparently they rolled out seven private labels already. what do you think is the short-term goal, the long-term goal, how quickly could they gain a large audience? >> i think they can gain a large audience very, very fast. it's interesting they're only making these goods available to amazon prime users. those are the people who pay $99 a year to get all of these special benefits. so they get this special value. it will drive the prime customer. reportedly there are more than 50 million of them. so you can get traction very very fast. i would imagine we'll see
7:37 am
product expansion. >> aren't you amazon prime, charlie? >> yes. >> i am too. >> jeff bezos prime. this is simply one more example of what scale can do for you. >> that is for sure. and everyone's saying what about the competition? i said, what about the vendors? the people who supply to them these dominant brands of nuts or cereal or oatmeal or whatever it is, they're coming into their category without having that marketing expense, and with this installed customer base the loyalty is to amazon not even to the brands anymore. >> that's what drove walmart's growth too. that kind of scale. >> so is this like walmart 2.0? >> for sure. >> here would be my pushback. as a mother i like tide brand. i like a certain kind of tide brand. in terms of cereal we like honey nut cheerios, a certain brand. you can't just make a generic brand of some of those. we have brand loyalty. >> however -- there's two
7:38 am
answers to that. these are not your grandmother's generics. they're going for products that you won't know the difference. again, your kids don't know the brand of oatmeal you use. and you probably use quaker oats, but maybe not. so they won't be able to taste that difference. the other thing that's interesting, millennials don't care that much. they're not as brand loyal. >> why won't amazon comment on it? it's interesting to me that we reached out and they say, we're not talking about it. you would think they would want to talk about something that seems to be going so well. >> i think it's about the vendors. they're starting to take market share away from people who supply to them. that was something that made a lot of vendors not very popular with walmart. so i think they're trying to do it in a quiet, low-key way, but it's happening. the train has left the station. >> in an in-surgeon campaign don't advertise your strategy as much. >> the quiet rollout seems to be working. >> always interesting. thank you so much. a startling admission by the

editor, trisha. i love this study. so much information. fist you found 40% of the products you tested failed to meet their spf claims. how did you test these sunscreens? >> spf is protection from uvb rays, which are the kind that burn the skin. they sit in a tub, they are exposed to light, and they come back are tested for effectiveness. >> we found that the products claim to be an spf 50 but in our tests, they were an spf of 8. >> whoa. >> what did you do trish? that is a big difference. >> it is a big difference and what is interesting about those sunscreens is they are the ones that contain titanium oxide and

8:33 am
new book "the gene." he writes one humbling fact about our understanding of the human genome is how little we know. we're pleased to have him here. first of all, congratulations on this and the pulitzer for the biography of cancer. >> thank you very much. >> the interesting thing about it, it's both promising and scary. tell us why. >> well it's promising because as we learn more about human genes, we can diagnose diseases that we didn't know how to diagnose before. with things like genetic interventions, we can begin to cure some diseases. it's a long frontier. there's lots we don't know. but the technology is advancing rapidly. i'm excited about it. that's what makes it promising. the danger in all this is we will start intervening on the human genome at a time that we don't know very much about it. >> while it's an embryo.
8:34 am
>> well or even in embryonic stem cells where we don't know all the ways that we can potentially manipulate it. really, it's the human embryo and embryonic manipulation that drives the concerns. >> but is it inevitable? >> i don't think it's inevitable. i think scientists will and have in the past stepped up to the plate and created strong barricades around what kinds of things can be done what kind of interventions can be done. so i think it's not -- i think it's not completely -- i think people will draw strong barricades around it. >> you write very candidly about the mental illness in your own family. you talk about two uncles and a cousin. did that have anything to do with your desire to explore this topic in 600 pages? a lot of information in your book. >> it's a lot of information, and you know that was absolutely the basis of the book. that and the fact that i was -- i still treat cancer patients. i'd began to experience the amazing things you can do with
8:35 am
genes and genetics around cancer. you know you can diagnose. imagine me being able to tell a woman about her risk of future breast cancer and being able to screen for that or give her a drug to prevent breast cancer. this technology didn't exist 20 years ago or 30 years ago. we have all of this now. but on the other hand, we're also grappling with the fact there are so many uncertainties. we're using the language of genes very loosely. but what are the uncertainties? what's the real promise and what are the real perils? that's at the center of the book. >> what percentage of cancers have a genetic component? >> well, you know ultimately all cancers are genetic. cancer a genetic disease. so the question you can ask is what percentage of cancers' genes are inherited from your parents? we don't know fully the answer yet. there are many genes that can have small effects. sometimes, you know, there's one gene that can have a very big effect. braca one. we know about it. one gene big effect.
8:36 am
on the other hand, there are many, many women with familial breast cancer that families have don't foe what genes are involved. so there's both ends of the spectrum, even in that one disease, breast cancer. >> because brca one is a single gene mutation. other things like huntington's disease, those are the first things you could create genetic mutation. you write the genome will be a manual of previvorship. what is that? >> it's a complicated word. it's the idea that, you know you can look at a genome and you can begin, we're not there yet, but we can begin to ask questions about what might happen in your future. so the word previvor is a word that reminds us we're going to try to predict the future from your genetic makeup. then you become a survivor of a disease you haven't yet had. it's a weird idea. often you're living in the shadow of an illness you haven't
8:37 am
yet had. so it's a little bit -- it's a tough idea. we should be very careful with that kind of idea. >> are you optimistic about where we are in this whole study of genes and cancer and mental illness? >> i'm optimistic as long as the wider public understands that there won't be single genes for this. there will be multiple genes with small effects and a big role of the environment in illnesses like this. there will be genetic determinants. we know many mental illnesses have jegenetic components at their very core. as long as we understand the information is complicated, that's the key. >> you talk about the challenge to the gene pool as a triangle. >> so the triangle has -- we have to remember that extraordinary suffering is one important thing we have to evaluate. number two, is there a good correspondence between the gene
8:38 am
and the disease? in other words, like brca 1, you have the gene there's a heightened risk for the disease. that's not true for all other genes. probably the most important, all of this should be publicly debated, and it should be open to choice. you shouldn't have a state mandate to test your genes or to do anything about your genome. >> thank you. >> we're just at the beginning of the legal frontier on this. >> that's a big legal frontier. >> great to have you here. >> my pleasure. >> thank you very, very much. and "the gene" goes on sale today. actor michael weatherly says good-bye to "ncis" tonight in the season finale after 13 years. and guess what? he's here in our toyota green room. next a look back i

"ncis." that was back in 2003. the actor stayed with the cast ever since the number one drama in the world premiered 13 seasons ago. that's more than 300 episodes. tonight's season finale will also be weatherly's finale on the show. dinozzo tries to find his former team member and love interest after an explosion. here's a preview. >> it's going to be fine junior. you do know that right? >> no, actually i don't. >> well, i guess it's better to be prepared but i've got this feeling. >> feeling of what? feeling that she's still alive? so do i. but i don't know that she's still alive, and nobody knows anything, so what's the point in feeling anything at all? >> michael weatherly, welcome back. with a little light reading we left in the green room for you. what have you learned just now? >> i am predisposed to comedy. not drama. but tonight is a very dramatic
8:44 am
episode. >> i know. all good things come to an end unless you anchor "cbs this morning." how are you feeling? you feel good right? >> i feel very good. i feel very whole, complete, and excited about -- it's a huge accomplishment. there's a sort of sense of graduating. that's deeply satisfying. but i'm also really energized by the future and what else is going to happen. >> we're going to talk about your future, your next chapter. you called this a full-circle moment. how? >> well it is -- season 14 will start in september. i won't be there, but "ncis" is a very rugged dynamic machine that keeps pumping out the television. i'm sure that they're going to do wonderful things but when i started the show i was playing robert wagner in a mini series about natalie wood. then robert wagner was hired in
8:45 am
season seven to play my father, and that was six years ago. last week i went to the wrap party with robert wagner. as i was getting into the car, peter walks by and goes hey. it was one of those moments where you thought, oh. >> circle of life. nice. >> done. >> your "ncis" co-star pauly perrette has been here. she sent this message for you. listen. >> hey gayle and charlie and norah. i miss you guys. michael weatherly, i love. we've been partners in crime in this thing for 14 years. my heart belongs to you so much, my brother. i love you. i never want to do anything without you, and you're just going to be so missed and so loved. tonight's episode is your last. hopefully not your last. you got to come back and see us. but there's nothing like you, my brother. i love you so much.
8:46 am
muah. >> well, that's very -- >> yes, very sweet. i have to say, i have probably built a huge retaining wall around my emotions. so that'll probably come out tonight a little bit. and i think also for the audience that loves this show it's a very powerful episode. i know if we get mark harmon to cry, but we try. >> but you try. >> it's interesting you say you built a retaining wall but it's been 13 years of your life. when you think about that, when we saw the first episode compared to where you are now. >> i look like i've been recast by an older, fatter guy. >> so tell us about bull. >> bull is the fascinating next step that kind of fell out of the sky, out of the lev moons moonves sky. he owns a lot of that sky, or at least controls it.
8:47 am
i was really fascinated edd by this concept of trial analytics and services. what that really means is looking at why we do the things we do and human behavior as it applies to jury trials. it turns out that dr. phil mcgraw before he became television's dr. phil ran a company that did just that. incredibly successful. >> in fact that's how he met oprah. >> that's how the two of them got together. she credits dr. phil with her victory in that case. very much so. he was very frank with her and said look you're going to have your ass handed to you. i mean in his plain-speaking way of talking. because she was saying but this is how i feel. these are the facts. he goes the facts, there's one way for the facts and there's one way to tell the facts effectively. >> right. >> he really made such a difference for her. >> you have stephen spielberg
8:48 am
producing. it's a real heavy-hitter show. >> and you, michael. >> yeah but the great thing was the client said what about innocent until proven guilty? bull says innocent until proven guilty is like two all-beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, pickles, onions on a sesame seed bun. it's the ad. it's the slogan. but it's not the truth. >> that sounds like phil too. sounds like him. >> i'm telling you, it's a show -- i finished reading it and sat down with my wife and said, remember that vacation we were going to take? it's not going to happen. we're going to make some more television. >> i know, but this is a new chapter. i think it's very exciting. for us too because you'll still be part of the cbs family. >> i have my summer reading. >> we'll be testing you. >> it's a full 600 pages. >> that's okay. >> you're flying back to l.a. you got time. >> beach reading. >> thank you michael weatherly. continued success to you. >> thank you. nice to see you guys. >> always good to see you.
