good morning to our viewers in the west. it's friday august 19, 2016. welcome back to "cbs this morning." more real news ahead including the search for truth in the presidential campaign. meet the man who uses pinocchio to rate the rhetoric and expose the lies. but first, here's today's eye opener at 8:00. >> this is where brazilian police say the americans showed up drunk, acted like jerks and vandalized the bathroom back there. >> breaking news, paul manafort is out as chairman of the donald trump campaign. trump said that manafort offered to resign. >> just two days ago manafort said i remain the campaign chairman and the chief strategist. well, not for long he didn't. >> despite calls for president obama to visit the area, he is

unlikely to cut short his new england vacation. >> firefighters haven't been able to get a full tally. homeowners have been able to come back and found their property has been reduced to ashes. >> the mayor held a news conference saying we have no cases of zika. now, here's what two different health officials told us. >> yes, the americans did another amazing job last night. however, of course it was all about one man from jamaica, all eyes on him, the fastest man in the world. >> lochte is, he's a dunce. we know he's a dunce. >> he's embarrassed this country. >> this is what stupid college kids do. >> an olympic spokesman said, quote, let's give these kids a break, they had fun, they made a mistake, let's move on. they're right, lochte is just a child of 32. i'm gayle king with anthony mason and margaret brennan. charlie and norah off. olympic swimmer ryan lochte
8:02 am
apologized just minute ago for a false story about being robbed in rio with three teammates. he put this on instagram which reads in part, i want to apologize for my behavior last weekend for not being more careful and candid in how i described the event. i waited to share these thoughts until it was confirmed that the legal situation was addressed. it was cleared that my teammates would be arriving home safely. >> lochte originally claimed they were held up at gunpoint as they returned from a late-night party. investigators say several security cameras show the swimmers vandalizing a gas station bathroom then leaving $50 to pay for the damage. the men are seen walking to the bathrooms and then pulling down a poster. rio police say the security guard did point a gun at lochte, but only because lochte was erratic and aggressive. >> i think everybody's glad he's apologized, but he's still getting hammered on instagram because people feel your apology still doesn't take responsibility for what happened. >> it falls short. >> it falls short. because he said, listen, a

for the past eight years "the washington post" fact checker column has rated the truth of campaign rhetoric. it uses pinocchios to measure falsehoods, some shading of the facts will get you one pinocchio. the real whoppers get four. donald trump and bill clinton both earned pinocchios this week. >> to defeat crime and radical islamic terrorism in this country, to win trade in our country, you need tremendous physical and mental strength and stamina. hillary clinton doesn't have that strength or stamina. believe me. and you know it. and they know it. and everybody knows it. >> first of all, the fbi director said when he testified before congress he had to amend his previous day's statement that she had never received any e-mails marked classified. they saw two little notes with a
8:05 am
"c" on it. this is the biggest load of bull i've ever heard. that were about telephone calls that she needed to make. and the state department typically puts a little "c" on it to discourage people from discussing it in public in the event the secretary of state, whoever it is, doesn't make a telephone call. does that sound threatening to the national security to you? >> glen kessler runs the "the washington post" fact checking department. you've got a lot to keep up with this campaign. >> it has been quite a bit. >> let's start with trump's claims about clinton's stamina where he was innuendo there more than a direct charge, but you looked into this. what did you find? >> well, what we found is that, you know, trump is referring to a variety of things that have appeared on right-leaning websites or conservative news or tv shows and that sort of thing that look at the supposed health of hillary clinton. and none of those things stood up to any scrutiny that she
8:06 am
supposedly was wearing a defibrillator or that she had a brain freeze at a certain point. so what we did is went through each of those pieces of innuendo, determined they were based on nothing and gave trump four pinocchios because he's given no evidence otherwise that she lacks physical stamina. >> i was wondering how you check somebody's stamina, but based on all the things he was saying about her. >> right. the burden of proof is on the speaker. if you can't provide evidence. >> you get pinocchios. >> bill clinton, your team has done over a dozen fact checks related to hillary clinton's e-mail and gave bill clinton three pinocchios for the comments he made. why does that stand out to you? >> what's happening there is the clinton campaign is often focused on very technical things. you heard him talk about the little "c". >> yes. >> i view that as kind of the political equivalent of three-card monotague where you're trying to distract people from what at core is the problem, which is the problem she had a private e-mail server,
8:07 am
which she shouldn't have had. and even if things are not marked classified the fbi found out they were classified discussions going on. it doesn't have to be marked classified. so they're trying to distract you with the minutia and take away from the big picture. >> the state department said yesterday for the first time that that payment of $400 million cash in the release of four american prisoners from iran are in fact linked. something they had denied up to this point. donald trump bit on that, linked hillary clinton to it. any truth to that linkage? >> well, you know, i covered the state department for nine years, and this is an interesting example of how, i mean, i've been pondering is this worthy of pinocchios. but you can't fact check opinion. you often use leverage to accomplish your goals. and you can make a case that this was leveraged. there were two separate diplomatic tracks that came together at the same time. on the other hand you could say,
8:08 am
oh, come on, we're giving them money even if it was money owed to them, virtually at the same moment the plane is taking off. >> well, that's on the question of ransom. but this is negotiated by john kerry, not hillary clinton, right? >> right. hillary clinton had nothing to do with this transaction. so if you're blaming hillary clinton, that might be worthy of pinocchio. >> how often do you hear from campaigns about -- do they complain when you give them pinocchios? >> sometimes they plea bargain. >> how does that work? >> well, this is really a three, it's more like a two. >> why does this campaign season stand up to other campaigns in terms of the pinocchios you've handed out? >> the big difference this time is donald trump. there's never been a candidate i've covered like donald trump. because most campaigns, you know, if you give them four pinocchios, they will say that's not good and they'll drop the talking points. >> i'm going to course correct. >> i'm going to course correct, might adjust the language. and also they engage with the fact checkers to make their
8:09 am
case. the trump campaign almost never responds to fact checking inquiries. donald trump will repeatedly say things over and over again that have been demonstrated as false, such as saying he was against the war in iraq when he clearly was in favor of the war in iraq. so that's really different. and there was all this he has 65% of ratings are four pinocchios, which is off the charts. typical politician is 15% to 20%. >> glenn kessler, thank you. she may stand 4'8", but gymnast simone biles towered over the field in her record breaking performance in rio. ahead, our,,
