7:06 am
57. >> reporter: trump boasted about raising millions for veterans before iowa caucus. remember those? for months it was elusive and fundraising looked more like marketing than actual generosity. today touch promises details to back up oft repeated claim that no one in this campaign has done more for veterans. >> we did $6 million for vets because i didn't do a television show. >> reporter: he came to washington to account for money raised for various veterans groups. >> $6 million. >> reporter: trump said the hastily organized fundraiser, counter-programming to a fox caucus debate that he boycotted. >> this is a special night for me. >> reporter: but the amount raised has been clouded for months in confusion and contradictory trump statements. >> the veterans money that you raised, what's the status of
7:07 am
that. >> well, we've given away a lot of it. >> how much? >> i don't know. i can tell you -- i don't know. a lot of it is going from the people that made it directly to the veterans. much -- i would say millions have been given out already. >> reporter: cbs news has only been able to confirm where $2 million of the $6 million has gone. even the $6 million figure has been hard to pin down. >> mr. trump pledged a million dollars. >> trump's campaign manager corey lewandowski provided little clarity on "cbs this morning" last week. >> what's the current amount donated to veterans. >> it's less than that but by memorial day all the money will be distributed. >> reporter: trump's support is at times rocky. >> i was not a fan of the vietnam war but i was entered in the draft and had a high draft number. >> reporter: during vietnam he received four deferments and one medical deferments. comments about arizona senator

7:09 am
the end of june four more states with 51 electoral votes will have their deadline lapse requirement of 157,000 signatures. even if there is a candidate and money, the practical realities make this almost impossible. >> do you think bill kristol has a candidate in mind and he's not telling us. >> i really can't conjure what bill kristol is thinking or doing at this point, i just can't. >> there's talk about romney. >> thank you very much. we have breaking political news from california where governor jerry brown endorsed hillary clinton a short time ago. clinton is shaking up husband schedule to keep up with sanders in california. sanders campaigned in oakland where protesters tried to rush the stage. nancy cordes with a win for sanders. good morning. >> reporter: good morning, hillary clinton was not planning to go to california but as the race tightens she shifted her schedule to arrive at an event thursday. for sanders and the campaign,

7:11 am
in a parade in their hometown of chappaqua, new york, but she won't be home for long. this california survey shows clinton and sanders in a statistical dead heat. a loss in california will be damaging but she would likely reach the delegates she needs to clinch the nomination regardless of california's outcome. sanders says the race isn't truly over until the convention. >> nobody will have enough pledge delegates to win the democratic nomination, either secretary clinton or myself will be dependent on superdelegates. >> reporter: sanders points out many of clinton's superdelegates came on board in the first month of her campaign back in early 2015 and could still change their minds. on the other hand, charlie, if they haven't changed their minds in all this time, they are unlikely to do so in the next couple of months. >> nancy, thanks. iraqi forces trying to retake fallujah from isis are running into stiff resistance. they face a counter-attack south
7:12 am
of the city and some of the worse fighting in government offensive. they have been under isis control for nearly two years. charlie d'agata has been at the front lines and is following the battle from london. good morning. >> reporter: good morning, heavily armed forces were able to repel the attacks with help of air cover from u.s. a&e led coalition. their accuracy may be lacking but the aim for iraqi forces in shiite militia is clear, tighten the noose on isis militants in fallujah. commanders say ground troops are closing in on three sides led by elite counter-terrorism forces backed up by u.s.-led airstrikes. but u.s. miller officials in baghdad tells cbs news, iraqi forces have yet to advance to the city itself and that won't be easy. although a few hundred residents
7:13 am
have managed to escape, tens of thousands more thought to be trapped in the city, held hostage by isis militants intent on using them as human shields. iraqi officials estimate more than 1,000 isis fighters remain in the city that was the first to fall to isis more than two years ago. it took eight months to recapture nearby ramadi, and this is what it looked like when it was over. iraqi forces have discovered networks of tunnel left behind by isis militants and entire neighborhoods booby trapped with homemade bombs. when we were last with iraqi soldiers by fallujah, they told us the closer they got to the city, the more vulnerable to suicide cars. even as forces in fallujah they have struck back unleashing suicide bombings in the capital that left more than 100 people dead and counting.

7:15 am
female gorillas have been looking for them. they call it a big loss but insisted the young boy's safety was paramount and said the animal was so strong he could crush a coconut with one hand. faced with the same decision, the zoo official said they would make it again. cincinnati zoo officials say harambe was disoriented when he found a child. >> we did not take the shooting lightly but the child was in danger. >> reporter: doubled down on the decision to shoot the gorilla after a 4-year-old boy climbed over a public barrier into a gorilla's habitat. >> people that question that don't understand you can't take a risk with a silverback gorilla. they are very big, three times bigger than a man, six times stronger than that. >> the woman who took this video kim o'connor said she heard the boy and his mother arguing shortly before the incident. >> i'm going to go in. no, you're not. i'm going to go in. no, you're not. >> reporter: harambe's death is
7:16 am
under scrutiny. more than 300,000 people have signed a petition calling for parents to be accountable. >> the zoo isn't a babysitter. >> reporter: wildlife biologist isn't placing blame but says the public should be more attentive. >> we have responsibility when we take our families. a lot of times we got lost in cell phone or taking a picture or texting and we're not keeping an eye on what's going on with our children. these are live animals, not animatronics. >> the boy made i through a fence and 4 feet of shrubs before dropping 15 feet into the mote blow. although they are standing by the decision they are mourning their gorilla along with the man who took care of harambe all his life. >> he was not mean, a gunshotel guy. an unforeseen circumstance. >> reporter: despite the outcry
7:17 am
over the responsibility of the boy's parents, cbs has not confirmed whether his father was at the zoo. zoo officials say they have prepared them for these situations and had practiced the week before the incident. charlie. >> thank you, jamie. florida police investigating a disturbing case of road rage captured on video. it shows a driver running over a motorcycle after a heated exchange. the two people on the bike are okay. police arrested the driver accused of hitting them. demarco morgan shows us what led to this violent confrontation. demarco, good morning. >> good morning. the dramatic cell phone video was taken by another driver who says he saw the man in the gray pontiac run the motorcyclist off the road. that's when he began filming. >> that's 1 1/2 tons of automobile crunching over a motorcycle in the middle of a florida freeway. the two riders barely escaping its path. >> we're on our way to dinner, and there was a driver on the road that was driving
7:18 am
erratically. >> he says he was out enjoying a memorial day ride with friends on his harley davidson. >> we pulled up next to him and let him know we were not pleased with his driving skills. that's when he decided he would put the car in reverse, back the car up 2 feet, turned the wheel and ran it over. >> reporter: he escaped with only a broken leg. his friend, who was also on the motorcycle, was hospitalized overnight with cuts, scrapes, an injured ankle. >> one of those, i can't believe this just happened. >> they arrested the driver and charged him with leaving the scene of an accident and aggravated battery. these days road rage isn't so rare. since 2010 deaths linked to road rage increased by 30% causing more than 1700 fatalities between 2010 and 2014. police say the driver of the gray sedan has been previously
7:19 am
cited for multiple traffic violations in the past. he said he did admit to hitting the vehicle and leaving the scene. his first appearance in court today. we told you earlier about golden state's big victory in the nba conference finals last night. league mvp steph curry's warriors complete add dramatic comeback. it was dramatic. they defeated oklahoma city 96-88. golden state overcame three games to one deficit. the final rematch with lebron james and cleveland cavaliers, first game is thursday in oakland. boy, that was worth staying up. lebron will be ready, too.

bet you've never seen this before. an unforeseen hazard on the golf course. take a look, norah and charlie. this giant alligator actually strolling over the fairway south of tampa. some people question whether this guy is even real. an employee of the golf course confirmed to "cbs this morning" the alligator lives there, and it may be mating season. they estimate the gator is about 15 feet long, but it never bothers anybody. she called it a course mascot, the longest alligator on record. found in florida. it's just over 14 feet long. >> keep your ball out of the water. >> yeah. there are certain golf courses where you know not to go and try and retrieve your ball.
7:31 am
>> if ufirst your bottle, then ball. >> what are you thinking about, norah? welcome back to "cbs this morning." coming up in this half hour, gawker founder and ceo nick denton is here in the toyota greenroom. it'll be his first network interview about the legal battle threatening his company. his response to hulling hogan's $140 million win and the billionaire who bankrolled the action. plus, a pair of shark attacks over the holiday weekend highlights a hidden danger in the ocean. ahead, the technology in the ocean and the air that can help find a shark before it finds you. time to show you some of this morning's headlines. politico reports former attorney general eric holder's latest views on edward snowden insist the former nsa contractor should stand trial but calls it a public service.
7:32 am
edward snowden tweeted, 2013, it's treason. 2014 s maybe not, but it was reckless. 2015, still, technically, it was what will happen in 2017 is unknown. he is in russia to avoid prosecution. "the wall street journal" reports on north korea's attempt to launch another missile today. south korea says it likely failed. the missile was reportedly fired from north korea's east coast. it was said to be a powerful mid range missile that could reach american bases in asia and the pacific. this was the fourth attempt at a successful launch since april. and "the houston krolg" says the gunman who opened fire. friends of the shooter say that he suffered from post-traumatic stress syndrome. gawker media ceo nick denton is here for his first network interview since challenging silicon valley billionaire peter
7:33 am
thiel. >> this dispute began in 2007 when a gawker website outed the paypal cofounder as a gay man. thiel told "the new york times" gawker is a terrible bully. he called the lawsuit one of the quote, greater philanthropic things i've ever done. denton has hired an investment banker to avoid possible sale of his company. he founded gawker media in 2002. it is reportedly worth at least $250 million. nick denton is in studio 57 with us for his first interview.his lawsuit. >> maybe very well be true. just to clear it up, is it for sale? >> we have to look at everything. when you have an angry billionaire against you, i think it's quite right to look at
7:34 am
every single contingency. >> okay. hulk hogan won the lawsuit against you or peter thiel helped him? >> this is a complicated story. it began as a story about a sex tape that hulk hogan had himself been talking about. it turned out his motives for pursuing the lawsuit weren't to do with that but were to do with racist remarks on another tape. now it seems that there's a story behind even that story. a billionaire on a ten-year mission to actually bankrupt a media company. >> i've read that open letter you wrote to peter thiel where you said there have been occasions where we overstep the line. where have you overstepped it? >> this is a story i don't particularly want to talk about that much because it was bad enough at the time for the person involved, but there was a story last year about an executive's personal life that i regret we published.
7:35 am
i said to, and we took it down. >> you published a story this person had contacted a male escort. >> the story was along those lines. >> so i think this is important because, also, the question about the hulk hogan sex tape. what is the news value in publishing a sex tape? >> well, first of all, we didn't publish a sex tape. we published snippets of a sex tape to accompany a story about this famous, famous wrestler, who had talked a lot about his sex life, had made it a matter of public interest, and the relationship he has with his best friend and his best friend's wife. we thought it was a valid story. we still think it is. a federal judge deemed it newsworthy. we believe the appeals court will find the same. >> you have no regrets about publishing the snippets of it? just because he talks about it i'm thinking doesn't mean he wants everybody to see it. >> no, absolutely.
7:36 am
but when somebody actually does make somebody a topic of public discussion, they can't be that surprised when others jump in, and the narrative goes in a direction they don't necessarily want. >> did you know peter thiel was involved in this case? when you found out, what did you think? >> we had some suspicions, but it seemed crazy. the idea that there would be somebody behind this, that there would be some long-standing plan that somebody would be spending $10 million, maybe more, funding a hole looking for cases, funding a whole series of cases against a media company because they didn't like critical coverage. i think we should -- >> you said some innocent people were rationale. >> he said friends of his had been hurt by our publicpublicat. he has many friends among the silicon valley elite. but look at the stories about him.
7:37 am
criticism of the performance of his hedge fund. criticism and mockery of his views on whether american democracy suffered after -- >> that shows he doesn't mind being criticized, but at some point he thinks it goes over the line. you've said gawker goes over the line. help us understand where you come down on that. >> the other irony here is he is, as we are, a beneficiary of free speech and free press in this country. he has very controversial views on whether women should have the vote on immortality, on sea steading, and we've written stories which are critical. we take our position seriously as the independent alternative press, and we've written stories that have absolutely upset both celebrities like hulk hogan and silicon valley elite.
7:38 am
>> he describes gawker as a bully. how do you describe what you do? what is the audience you're trying to reach? >> i think it's a little rich for somebody worth $2.7 billion who spent a fortune of their fortune. >> let me get specific. peter thiel has argued some of the stories were painful and paralyzing for people who were targeted and that most of these people cannot afford to fight back. we have a couple of the headlines that you've had on gawker in the past. a lot of these stories focus on people's sexuality. specifically whether they're gare or not. does he have a point? >> we've published about a million posts over the company's existence. most are reviews of video games, new cars that have come out, stories like gizmodo's story about the facebook news headline. >> did gawker out peter thiel in 2007? >> i don't believe we did. he told the new yorker in 2003
7:39 am
he was already open with friends. if you actually read the piece, the piece written by a gay writer, i'm gay myself, was a piece celebrating the fact that the most talented venture capitalist in silicon valley was gay in a largely straight male world. i think that's as worthy of note as whether carly fiorina was the first powerful female executive in silicon valley. it's not something to be ashamed of. i think it's weird for people to behave like it is. >> two quick points. if, in fact, you knew peter thiel would come after gawker, if you knew that, would you have not
7:40 am
there are other examples of why people spend their money to help people in lawsuits. >> and in this case, peter thiel is -- well, peter thiel's lawyer is working on behalf of two people we know of. peter thiel hasn't confirmed which lawsuit he's behind. one is someone who claims he invented e-mail about ten years after e-mail was invented. the other person is a journalist who was collecting a dirt file on two co-founders of tinder who are in a fight with each other. anybody who actually looks at those stories would say, what's this about? >> if the verdict stands, can you stay in business, and will you change the way you operate? >> we don't believe the verdict will stand. in terms of hulk hogan verdict, we don't believe it will stand. >> in terms of the money though.
7:41 am
>> yes. >> not in terms of the decision. >> i think in terms of the decision too. a federal judge already determined that the story was newsworthy. the appeals court has on several occasions ruled in our favor. >> will you change the way you operate, nick, because of this? >> i think society has already changed and the media has already changed. there's less demand now amongst our readers, amongst our 4 million each weekday reader. there's less demand for the kind of highly critical journalism that there was maybe five or ten years ago. >> nick denton, thank you for being here. >> thank you. swimmers are getting high-tech help to lower the risk of shark attacks. ahead, how new tools and drones are letting beach goers know when danger lurks in the water. you're watching "cbs this morning." omen worldwide i trust tena. and with new tena overnight underwear i can now sleep worry free all night. the unique secure barrier system

shark attacks on both coasts are raising new concerns about beach safety this summer. new technologies like drones could make swimming less risky, despite reports of a growing shark population. hat would
7:46 am
essentially give you an early warning if you're swimming with sharks. this may look like an ordinary jet ski trip, but it's really an example of high tech on the high seas. shark researcher chris low and his team are diving into the ocean off southern california. tagging sharks with transmitters near popular beaches, they're tracking shark movements to find out why the population of young great white sharks is growing so close to crowded shores. >> they come in because there's lots of abundant food like sting rays, and the water is warmer. >> reporter: a female swimmer was hospitalized sunday after receiving multiple bite wounds to her upper body from a suspected great white. last year there were 98 unprovoked shark attacks
7:47 am
worldwide, the highest on record, resulting in six n fatalities. low says he's not surprised to see a shark attack so early in the season. >> i think the rate of shark attack is going to continue to go up. there are more and more people using the ocean than ever before. the other thing, in some places like the u.s., we're seeing recovery of our shark populations. so you put those two things together, you will see more shark attacks. >> reporter: shark trackers are also using drones to give them an eye in the sky. scientists are also using underwater cameras to count the number and the types of sharks swimming by. this is a wave glider, a versatile research tool that uses solar and wave power to propel itself. stanford researchers are using it along with floating buoys. >> new technology is actually

many companies are hiring experts to teach them about young people. the self-proclaimed millennial experts are on the rise. last year u.s. organizations reportedly spent between $60 million and $70 million on so-called generational consulting. derek thompson is the senior editor for "the atlantic" and recently wrote about millenni s millennials. so "the wall street journal" reported they spend as much as $20,000 an hour for these consultants. who are these companies that are
8:21 am
spending that amount of money? >> $20,000, right. it's really across the board. you have fast food restaurants. you have tech companies like oracle. you have companies like hbo, who are spending money not to learn how to treat the millennials who are their own employees, but rather how to reach millennials in this age of media fragmentation. it really is across the board. >> when we were all 20-something, the age range of millennials, i don't recall anybody trying to figure out what do we need to do to figure out what you guys like. >> so therefore, why? >> yeah, what do they want to find out? and ask them, derek. >> i feel like this is one of those timeless problems. people have always been confused about young people. there are plato quotes about it. the bible has chapters about this. there are always a few people ready to monetize that timeless problem. how do i raise my child? how do i disagree productively with my spouse? you can understand where this is coming from.
8:22 am
but then you look at the solutions. find work that's meaningful. treat your employees with respect. this is rather obvious stuff for $20,000 an hour. >> common sense. >> just for the sake of me, what ages are millennials? >> typically you think of -- this is an 80 million person generation. it really is this group that sort of came into the work force around the great recession. the oldest would be in the mid-30s. >> are they spending more money? why the focus, the attention? >> for a couple reasons. first of all, on the one hand, you have people that don't understand them as employees. they're always on their phones. they have this new fleet of apps. so they kpot size them essentially and pay tens of thousands of dollars for a consultant to say, no, they're humans. then sometimes you have companies like hbo who are trying to reach a demographic that is not tapped into those legacy products like pay tv. the question becomes, how do we
8:23 am
get a new consumer demographic to buy our product? >> just stream it. >> they are the largest working demographic, are they not? >> they are. they're 80 million people, 50 million of them in the work force. this is an important point because 50 million people, right. this is 25% larger than the state of california. if i asked you, how do you get a person from california to work with you in the office? your first question is, well, are they northern california or southern? are they in the entertainment business or in retail? or in tech? you begin to break it down. this is not one big demographic blob. this is 50 million individuals, and they all have their own needs. >> do they have special needs that others don't? >> i don't think they do. i think a lot of what's happening is an older generation is seeing a younger group with smaller instruments in their hands, these little phones, and saying, we can't possibly understand them because they look so weird. they pay $20,000 to a person that tells them, these are just human beings, and then they possibly treat them more like the human beings they should
8:24 am
have been treated like at the beginning of the session. >> without stereotyping, do millennials work differently than baby boomers, for instance? >> i think absolutely young people who have access and have grown up in an environment of different media technology, absolutely communicate differently. you're talking about comparing a generation of, you know, landline phone users to digital natives who might never use a landline phone in their entire life, and they're constantly communicating with people via text and e-mail. so it is a different focus. it is a different way to communicate, but at the same time, it comes back to the same values. people want meaning from work. they want respect from their bosses. >> we want that at all ages. i want meaning from work. don't you? >> yes, darling. i do. i also want to know how they differ from 15-year-olds. >> that's a great question. 15-year-olds aren't working, so it's difficult to figure out what they'll be like in ten years. >> but thefr the same sources of information. >> even more so. >> you are one of those millennials you speak of. >> i am, indeed.
8:25 am
i confess. >> thank you, derek. could be suspended or ired after his gun was stolen fr his car in san francisco. ators say the agent an fbi agent could be suspended or fired after his gun was stolen from his car in san francisco. investigators say that the agent left his car sunday afternoon. when he returned 10 minutes later his glock 27, fbi credentials and badge were gone. bernie sanders continues to campaign in northern california. this morning he is set to hold a news conference on healthcare at the hyatt house in emeryville. he will then move ton santa cruz and monterey. -- he will then move on to santa cruz and monterey and will be in palo alto tomorrow. in the next half-hour of "cbs this morning," how music

>> to say something is happy or sad really depends on the person. >> to some degree, yes. we can only take it so far. >> reporter: this musician is teaching watson to convey emotion by training it to recognize musical patterns. happy or upbeat songs are more likely to be based on major chords. sad is typically expressed in a minor key. >> this is revolutionary, you think? >> for sure. this is the cutting edge of music. >> reporter: music has been moving into the digital age for decades. technology has created more efficient recording methods. and spawned an entire genre of computer generated beats. but watson's songs are the first digital works based on mood. researchers hope anyone will be able to use watson beat just by opening an app.
