good morning to our viewers in the west on this friday. happy friday to you, august 12, 2016. welcome back to "cbs this morning." there is more real news ahead including the search for truth in the presidential race. the founder of politifact shows how both candidates get the facts wrong. but first, here's today's eye opener at 8:00. >> the jetblue airbus a-320 was in the air for about three and a half hours when crew members were forced to land the plane. >> donald trump hoping to rally disaffected blue collar workers to his side without alienating others. >> hillary clinton attacked donald trump on a range of issues, which she said would benefit people like donald trump. cory thomas was shot and killed right about this spot.
8:01 am
>> police source says a 3-year-old child was riding a wooden roller coaster when he was ejected on the last turn and highest point. >> only grow half an inch a year so scientists knew they were long in the tooth. >> to them, it's a normal life. if we can learn from these outliers, hopefully each of us will live bet sgler who at the table is going to tell david agus he doesn't need to wear a sweater at the beach? >> i think you just did. last night was supposed to be about ryan phelps versus ryan lochte in the pool, instead history was made. >> american athletes are bringing home so much gold they're going to have to get the colomb colombian weightlifting team to carry to the airports. today's morning eye opener at 8:00 is presented by liberty mutual insurance. i'm gayle king with dana ja
8:02 am
cobsen and jeff glor. donald trump says he was being sarcastic. he blasted critics a few hours ago saying, quote, they don't get sarcasm. >> over the last few days trump repeatedly called the president the founder of isis. conservative radio host hugh hewitt gave him a chance to clarify his comments, trump stressed he meant what he said. >> i know what you meant, he created the vacuum. >> no, i meant he's the founder of isis. i do. he's the most valuable player. i give him the most valuable player award. i give her too. >> but he's not sympathetic to them. he hates them. he's trying to kill them. >> he was the founder. the way he got out of iraq, that was the founding of isis. >> trump argued said isis exploited the withdrawal of u.s. troops from iraq in 2011. he ignores the fact that president obama didn't set that date. in 2008 then president george w. bush negotiated a deal with iraq to remove all american troops by the end of 2011. president obama, who promised
8:03 am
voters he would end the iraq war and force the bush era timeline. trump himself said the u.s. should declare victory and leave. >> donald trump isn't the only person on the campaign trail having troubles with facts. trump, hillary clinton and their running mates are keeping fact checkers busy. all of the comments you're about to hear are not true. >> hillary wants to abolish -- essentially abolish the second amendment. >> we have the most dynamic, productive workforce in the world. bar none. >> she actually said out loud, we are going to raise taxes on the middle class. >> the thing that has amazed me is the depth of the trash talking of latinos saying all mexicans are rapists and going after, you know, latino immigrants. >> the obama/clinton war on coal has caused michigan over 50,000 jobs. >> director comey said that my answers were truthful and what i've said is consistent with what i have told the american
8:04 am
people. that there were decisions discussed and made to classify retro actively certain of the e-mails. >> joining us now to separate fact from fiction this election season is politifact founding editor, bill, also a duke journalism professor and joins us from raleigh, north carolina. that's charlie rose country. good morning. good to see you. >> it is. good morning, gayle. >> you heard the montage we put together of untruths. before we get into specifics, how does this season compare to political seasons in the past in terms of factually challenged statements, if you will? >> well, it's been crazy busy for us at politifact. the magnitude of the claims, in particular the magnitude of the falsehoods is really remarkable. and i think it just reflects how the media has changed. and there's so many more ways now that candidates can get their messages out without the
8:05 am
filter of the news media. and that allows them to say things that often aren't true. >> donald trump says that he was being sarcastic with his latest comment. does that exempt him from the fact or fiction test? >> i'll tell you, we had originally rated his claim pants on fire, which is our lowest rating, the rating we use for falsehoods that are not just false but ridiculously false. but it's really remarkable. here's a talking point that he's been using for several days now, he doubled down on it yesterday as you noted in the interview with hugh hewitt, and now he claims he was being sarcastic. it's just truly remarkable. i think we need a new rating on our truth-o-meter for this. >> you're talking about the claim obviously that he had that barack obama and hillary clinton founded isis. our john dickerson says it's statements like that that trump is sort of baiting these fact checkers like you to keep the
8:06 am
conversation going. is that what he's doing? >> well, i think it is remarkable that he wants to keep the conversation going particularly when i can't imagine that any communications strategist would say it makes sense. i mean, he is getting fact checkers and other journalists to point out again and again that his statements are false. and it just makes no -- it doesn't make a lot of sense. is he baiting fact checkers? i think there's definitely -- he likes baiting everybody. >> but, bill, i mean, is there some point to the notion that the checking system needs to be refined at all when somebody says the sky's not blue? is there a need to fact check that? >> well, we're select ive in wht we fact check at politifact. we will check claims where people will really wonder, really, is that true? and with the claim that
8:07 am
president obama and hillary clinton founded isis, i think it's legitimate, people hear that and think really what role did that play. and that's what we did at politifact. we found that isis was actually founded in 2004, so four years before barack obama was elected. and those are the kind of things we fact check. so it's not like we're social scientists. we're journalists and we're trying to satisfy our readers and viewers' curiosity. >> hillary clinton obviously is not immune right now. a recent poll 59% of people say that hillary clinton is dishonest. how does she stand up against the fact checking and that percentage as well? >> yeah, you know, it's interesting. her percentage of false and pants on fire ratings is about the same as other american politicians. i think it's 13%. by contrast trump is at 55%. but i think what has happened with secretary clinton is that people remember the big ones.
8:08 am
and so the statement with comey that you played earlier, you know, there was one where she repeated something she had said before that the fact checkers had said was false. and people remember those big moments. >> bill adair, good luck keeping up the next three months. >> you're going to be busy. >> thank you very much for your time. >> we are. the gold rush continues for the united states in rio. michael phelps earned gold in the 200-meter individual medley yesterday. it's his fourth gold in rio, the 22nd of his 16-year olympic career. simone manuel was considered a long shot, but she shared gold in the 100-meter freestyle. manuel is the first black female american swimmer to ever strike gold in an olympic swimming event. >> 19-year-old u.s. gymnast simone biles made her own headlines. she earned the gold medal in the women's individual all-around also earning the highest score on vault. but there is one vault even the world's top gymnast will not perform.
8:09 am
jamie yukkas is in a rainy rio with a death defying stunt. jamie, great umbrella, good morning. >> i know. sorry, guys, we're really trying to keep it together out here this morning. it's not as impressive as those gymnasts. their skills, pretty much all of them, are amazing. but there is one move you were talking about that is called the vault of death that only a number of athletes have landed. vaulting begins with a sprint, then the launch followed by flips, twists and spins. simone biles may take the occasional step, but from the start she's a step ahead of the competition. seven-time olympic medalist shannon miller. >> i think for simone whether she wins five gold medals or whatnot, i think what makes her so dominant is her difficulty. >> but despite all those skills, there's one move so difficult even biles won't try it. it's known as the vault of death.
8:10 am
russian gymnast yolina first landed it in 1999. this egyptian gymnast tried it in 2014 and nearly avoided serious injury. in rio two are expected to attempt it. indian gymnast is one of only five women to successfully land it. aksana is another. she's a 41-year-old mom and two-time olympic medalist from uzbekistan competing in her seventh olympics. what makes this vault so hard? the gymnast sprints down this runway into a front hand spring launching herself into two and a half somersaults forward ideally landing on her feet. even the best athletes say this ends one of two ways. >> it's one of those skills that, you know, you're on or you're injured. if you're on or off, there's no halfway. >> a member of the fierce five who won team gold in london. >> i think the biggest challenge of this vault is gaining enough
8:11 am
height off the table. >> and in vaulting when even one detail is off, it can mean disaster. >> you have to practice it every day and that can be so tolling on your body. and that is where you risk injury. >> like when a french gymnast broke his leg last weekend in qualifying. or flopped and crashed. after the horse's height was set too low at the 2000 sydney games. but when it works this 4'8" bundle of muscle can flip, twist and spin through the air and still stick a landing. sunday night's vault final is the first of four individual finals for the women. simone biles will compete in three of those, so at the end of next week she could have five gold medals, gayle. >> oh, we hope she gets all five of them. hold on to the umbrella. that's one of those videos you watch and go, oh, ow, ow. i don't want to do anything that has death in it.
8:12 am
good luck to them on sunday night. we will be watching. jamie yuccas is in rio. we thank you again, jamie. a shakeup at macy's. about one in seven will close. ahead, what's behind the new strategy and why it means macy's will walk away from a billion,, this morning's eye opener at 8:00 is sponsored by liberty mutual insurance. liberty stands with you. liberty mutual insurance. liberty stands with.

until i learned more about once-daily xarelto... a latest generation blood thinner. then i made the switch. xarelto® significantly lowers the risk of stroke in people with afib not caused by a heart valve problem. it has similar effectiveness to warfarin. warfarin interferes with vitamin k and at least six blood clotting factors. xarelto® is selective targeting one critical factor of your body's natural clotting function. for people with afib currently well managed on warfarin, there is limited information on how xarelto and warfarin compare in reducing the risk of stroke. like all blood thinners, don't stop taking xarelto without talking to your doctor, as this may increase your risk of a blood clot or stroke. while taking you may bruise more easily, and it may take longer for bleeding to stop. xarelto may increase your risk of bleeding if you take certain medicines. xarelto can cause serious, and in rare cases fatal bleeding. get help right away for unexpected bleeding, unusual bruising or tingling. if you have had spinal anesthesia while on xarelto watch for back pain or any nerve or muscle related signs or symptoms. do not take xarelto if you have an artificial heart valve
8:15 am
or abnormal bleeding. tell your doctor before all planned medical or dental procedures. before starting xarelto tell your doctor about any conditions, such as kidney, liver or bleeding problems. to help protect yourself from a stroke, ask your doctor about xarelto. there's more to know. xarelto. because of their worry-free 30-day satisfaction guarantee on appliances. that's what i'm talking about cindy. i like your style. now get 20% off appliances $396 or more, at lowe's. good is a catalyst,ue diamond almond. good is contagious. and once it gets going there is no stopping what you can do. get your good going. blue diamond almonds. proud sponsor of the us swim team

8:34 am
swimming, this is a big, big night. and i like to say, i mean, she made history twice. it's not just that she was the first black female swimmer to win a gold medal. she also broke an olympic record. so she was not even expected to medal and all of a sudden she comes out of nowhere and ties for the gold setting an olympic record and making this real historic moment. it was something to see. a great olympic moment for team usa in these games. >> let's talk about michael phelps. that was a big showdown last night between him and ryan lochte. what is the talk in town today? he was really amazing to watch last night. >> he was. i mean, a 31-year-old is not supposed to be this good in a swimming pool, but michael phelps has come back to the olympics and he is just tearing it up. i think what people are talking about is not so much that michael phelps won, but a lot of people are talking about the fact that ryan lochte didn't even win a medal. going into this it was all about the duel in the pool and these guys going neck-to-neck for gold. and after that it was kind of disappointing to hear ryan

lochte. he seemed so disappointed and dejected saying he needs some time off from swimming to really regroup after that. >> maybe it was the green hair. i don't know. >> the chlorine affected him. >> slowed him down all that hair dye. >> i don't know. >> ben, not to be outdone, the coronation is complete for simone biles as well. she won the women's all-around in gymnastics yesterday, which was also a lot of fun to watch. after the women were so dominant as a team. what did you make of all that? what's the opinion there? and what's on tap for next week in gymnastics? >> well, i mean, she proved once again that she is the best gymnast in the world. and it was pretty cool to see her win that. just the emotion on her face, her family, it was quite a moment. one of our producers here in rio was actually at a bar around the corner from where we're staying while that was happening. and he was telling us that the brazilians, the local folks in the neighborhood, were riveted just sitting there watching that on television and cheering for her. so she has a lot of fans here that she probably doesn't even

know about, but what an awesome moment. >> i know. everybody just loves her, ben. i want to know the name of that producer who was at the bar. >> it starts with chris. >> okay. do you feel concerned about zika there, ben? >> you know, it's funny. everybody asks me about zika. and my response has been of all the concerns here in rio, that is probably the smallest one. it is winter here. you can see most mornings i've been wearing a coat. it's rainy and cold today. so the mosquito population really is not that large. and the brazilians have been trying to tell everybody that all along saying, hey, guys, this is not as big of an issue as you're making it out to be. and i think they're probably right about that. you just don't see that many mosquitos. now, that being said, if you happen to get stung by -- or if you happen to get bitten by the mosquito carrying it and get zika, that's a serious issue and not something to take lightly. >> ben tracy and the

shower lit up the night skies, but you might not have seen it if you live in a busy area because of what's called light pollution. the dark sky association is to protect the natural sky from manmade glare. rigorous process leads to official designation of dark sky. and this summer as we saw up close, the grand canyon became the most famous park to earn this distinction. with its red rocks and roaming colorado river, the grand canyon is stunning enough by day. but seeing the park this way is only half the story. >> tonight's going to be pretty fun -- >> as we watched, astronomers gathered for a star party. high powered telescopes set up to stare deep into outer space. it's an event that's historic this summer. >> nice. >> because the grand canyon was just named the newest park to be certified as dark sky. >> i didn't realize this was an issue. >> john barentine is with the international dark sky association. it took two years to locate

losing touch with. and that's the sense of common humanity that we had in the era before internet and before radio and television when we sat outside under the stars at night and we told our stories. >> reporter: living in or near a city, you will never see skies like this. it is both inspiring and humbling. and we can show you what it looks like on camera, but it's worth seeing in person. >> awesome. >> you guys want to see a red star -- >> amateur astron more coreara shows you. resonates with you. >> definitely. i'm from the phoenix area, so we have extreme light pollution there. it's a big city. there's lights everywhere. you can't really see much out even in the suburbs. and when you come out here and you can just look up and see the milky way and these incredible dark skies, it's like, wow, we should really just turn off our lights more often. >> reporter: getting named dark sky is a long process that will

take a park this big more than five years in total to complete. somebody had to go and locate every single light in the park? >> yeah. >> reporter: ranger raider lang showed us why so many of the 5,000 lights in the park have to be replaced. these new lights are good. they only shine light where needed. but the majority of lights cast too big a glare. this is a quintessential example of a bad light. >> terrible lighting right here. first of all you might notice the milky way's gone, it's not above us right now. >> reporter: you don't see anything. you see a couple stars. >> one, two, that's probably a plane. we're within the sky glow right now. these are lights that we are going to work on retrofitting and making more night sky friendly. >> reporter: at the star party we learned that even the smallest amount of light can ruin your view of the night sky. at star parties there are no white lights allowed. it's just these red ones and that's because if you see a white light, your eyes will

reset and takes another 20 minutes at least to get used to the night skies again. that means no looking at your phone and certainly no camera flashes. astronomers and tourists took in views that are timeless and for many fast fading. john hopes the grand canyon's historic dark sky certification serves as inspiration around the world. >> there's something so intimately connects us to the nature and to the universe by being out under a starry sky. if i have a personal mission in the work i do for the organization, it's that every kid in america or even around the world would be able to experience that. because for somebody who comes from a place that's light polluted, it's really life changing. >> stunning. >> beautiful. >> stunning, jeff. >> there's nothing like sitting under a clear night's sky and just taking it in. and beyond just the beauty of it, it's the energy that is saved, the money that is saved by using the right kind of lighting. it's what it does for the environment. so many species are nocturnal. >> yep. >> and when there's so much

light around, they don't know necessarily what to do. it's sort of a win-win all the way around. and as they say, you try to fight air pollution or water pollution, that takes a long time. you stop putting something into the water, it takes a while for it to clean up. with light pollution you fix the light, it's fixed right away. >> another reason to go to the grand canyon. i was there a couple weeks ago but i never look up. i'm so busy looking at the rocks. next, a look at all we're seeing fewing cases of asthma in kids. and the new clean energy economy has created more than half a million jobs. i'm tom steyer. just when we're making progress, the oil companies are trying to weaken our clean air laws. but we can stop them. send them a message. we're going to protect our kids - not their profits.
