7:03 am
places. welcome to cbs this morning. we're going to begin with news affecting all of us at this broadcast and this network. cbs news has suspended our co-host charlie rose over allegations of sexual misconduct. >> the "washington post" published claims from eight women who all worked or wanted to work for his pbs program and they describe rose making unwanted sexual advances in the 1990s through 2011. bianna golodryga is here with the allegations and charlie's response to them. >> this one does hit close to home. we've been able to reach out to one of those accusers. she kididn't want to go on came but confirms the reporting is accurate. additional women have spoken out to business insider and "the new york times." some say he globed them or exposed himself to them and many paint a picture of a respected
7:04 am
figure abusing his position. >> i think that you can't understate, you know, the level of influence and power that a man like charlie rose has. >> reporter: "washington post" reporter amy briton spent weeks reaching out to former employees and job seekers. several describe rose putting his hand on their leg, sometimes their upper thigh. one said he groped her breasts as she drove him in a car. two women said he walked naked in front of them after taking a shower. >> some critics might say, well, why were they in the position to see him naked. the thing about charlie rose is he would commonly require his employees to come over to his private home. >> reporter: he allegedly invited one woman to his home on long island while considering her for a job. she described crying the entire time as he reached down her pants. rose tweeted a statement yesterday evening saying, i deeply apologize for my inappropriate behavior. i'm greatly embarrassed. i have behaved insensitively at
7:05 am
times and i accept responsible for that, though i did not believe that all of these allegations are accurate. rose explained, i always felt that i was pursuing shared feelings, even though i now realize i was mistaken. >> this is the cbs news night watch. >> reporter: during a long career in journalism, rose earned multiple emmys and a peabody award. >> this is charlie rose. >> reporter: but it's his signature interview program that made him a household name. in 2014, he was one of "time" magazine's 100 most influential people in the world. >> he had such power over the show, he owns the show. there is no human resources department in the charlie rose show. many of these women said even if they wanted to file an official complaint, they wouldn't even know who to go to. >> reporter: one of the accusers, a former assistant, said in a facebook post the work environment at the charlie rose show supported a spectrum of
7:06 am
misconduct. she's one of two women who told "the washington post" they reported rose's behavior to the show's executive producer yvette vega. she claims veg ga would shrug and just say, that's just charlie being charlie. in a statement to "the post," vega wrote, i should have stood up for them. i failed. it is crushing. i deeply regret not helping them. the charlie rose program airs on cbs and then re-airs on bloomberg. both networks have suspended the program. charlie rose has co-hosted this broadcast since its debut in 2012. he's also a contributing correspondent to "60 minutes." in a statement cbs news says he's suspended immediately while we look into the matter. these allegations are extremely disturbing and we take them very seriously. "the washington post" reporter told us more than a dozen other women have reached out wanting to speak or share their stories since this article appeared
7:07 am
yesterday. and, norah, as tough as this story is, it's important that we cover it the same way we covered the other ones. >>bianna. it takes a lot of courage for these women to come forward. i think that they should continue to do something. >> we hope they will continue to speak up. >> yes. i also want to say this, that this is a moment that demands a frank and honest assessment about where we stand and more generally the safety of women. let me be very clear. there is no excuse for this alleged behavior. it is systemic and pervasive. i've been doing a lot of listening and i'm going to continue to do that. this i know is true. women cannot achieve equality in the workplace or in society until there is a wrereckoning aa taking of responsibility. i'm really proud to work at cbs news. there are so many incredible people here, especially on this show. all of you here.
7:08 am
this will be investigated. this has to end. this behavior is wrong, period. >> i certainly echo that and i have to say, norah, i really am still reeling. i got an hour and 42 minutes of sleep last night. both my son and my daughter called me, oprah called me and said, are you okay? i am not okay. after reading that article in "the post," it was deeply disturbing, troubling and painful for me to read. that said, i think we have to make this matter to women, the women who have spoken up, the women who have not spoken up because they're afraid. i'm hoping they will take the step to speak out too. that this becomes a moment of truth. you know, i've enjoyed a friendship and a partnership with charlie for the past five years. i've held him in such high regard. and i'm really struggling because how do you -- what do you say when someone that you deeply care about has done something that is so horrible. how do you wrap your brain
7:09 am
around that? i'm really grappling with that. that said, charlie does not get a pass here. he doesn't get a pass from anyone in this room. we're all deeply affected. we're all rocked by this. and i want to echo what norah said, i really applaud the women that speak up. he doesn't get a pass because i can't stop talking about the anguish of these women. what happened to their dignity. what happened to their bodies. what happened to maybe even their careers. i can't stop thinking about that and the pain they're going through. i also find that you can hold two ideas in your head at the same time. you can grapple with things. and i -- to be very honest with you, i'm still trying to process this. i'm still trying to sort it out. because this is not the man i know. i'm also clearly on the side of the women who have been very hurt and very damaged by this. and i'm going to, you know, i haven't spoken to him. have you spoken to him? i haven't spoken to him. i intend to speak to him
7:10 am
certainly later today. i'm very sorry and i'm very glad they have spoken up. >> well said. we are going to continue to do our reporting on this story and our allegations that have come forward. >> can i just say this, norah, we have a great team here and we're all, as you said, very committed to bringing you the news, even when it affects us so deeply. none of us ever thought we'd be sitting at this table in particular telling this story, but here we are, but we will continue to report the news as we always have. >> we should say this, that in our next hour, five highly accomplished women talk about their sexual harassment stories and how to help other women expose their abusers. that is ahead here on cbs this morning. >> we're also learning that the longest serving member of the house of represent tifls is facing accusations of sexual har ragsment. buzz feed news reports democratic congressman john conyers paid a woman more than $27,000 from his office budget in 20 15 to settle a complaint. the woman claims conyers fired her because she did not succumb
7:11 am
to his sexual advances. others allege he made repeated requests for sexual favors. conyers office did not respond to a request for comment about this. >> a second woman accuses democratic senator al franken of sexual misconduct. lindsay mentz said he grabbed her back side while they were taking a photo at the minnesota state fair. franken says he did nouz remember but feels badly she felt disrespected. huffington says they were both being funny, she says that for more than to years, quote, there has never been anything remotely inappropriate in our interactions. >> the border patrol faces a deepening mystery sur routing the death of one agent and serious injuries to another. agent rogelio martinez died from injuries he sustained in the line of duty.
7:12 am
near van horn texas, not far from the mexico border. >> reporter: the surviving border patrol agent is now in stable condition here in el paso. apparently he has no memory of what happened. the fbi's always brought in when there's a suspicion a federal law enforcement officer has been assaulted. in a statement released by the agency last night, they made no mention of attack or assault to describe what happened to the agents. in the last 48 hours, there was an e-mail circulated that stated it is unclear whether or not these agents were attacked or whether they were injured in a fall. agent rogelio martinez and his partner's wounds were extensive. broken bone, major head trauma. martinez had injuries to his chest, collarbone and ribs. the border patrol agents union believes they were victims of a stoning. >> it is consistent with having been assaulted with possibly
7:13 am
rocks. that's the only thing they can think of. there's nothing else there on the scene. >> reporter: the fbi says the agents were found around 11:20 saturday night in a culvert near interstate so outside of the town of van horn. earlier that night, the law enforcement source tells cbs news martinez radioed in that he was getting out of his vehicle and following a trail of possible footprints in the dirt. he was later found unconscious and bleeding from the head. martinez apparently had not drawn his weapon. >> he was a dedicated agent that went out there to do his job and he did not make it home. >> reporter: the agents were airlifted to a hospital in el paso where martinez died from his injuries. on monday, president trump offered his sympathies to the agent's families and renewed his call for a border wall. >> we have to stop the massive drug flow from pouring in and my respect to the families that were so badly hurt because they were devastated. >> reporter: emory crawford is agent martinez's longtime friend. >> all he wanted to do is just help people and help the world
7:14 am
and try to make a difference. he would be the type of guy that would give the shirt off his back and wouldn't ask for anything in response. >> reporter: that area where the border patrol agents were injured is known to be used by drug smugglers. the fbi's supposed to have a news conference later today. even though the incident is really a mystery as to what happened, the governor of texas has already authorized a $25,000 reward for information leading to an arrest and conviction in this case. >> all right, david, thank you. the justice department is suing to block at&t's $85 billion purchase of time warn, the owner of cnn. >> you are fake news. i like real news. you're fake news. >> president trump's frequent criticism of cnn is raising concerns about the motive behind the government's legal challenge. julianna goldman is at the justice department. julianna, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. the justice department says the merger would harm competition, increase prices for consumers and result in less innovation.
7:15 am
doj also says that the newly combined firm would be able to charge cable distributors hundreds of millions of dollars more per year for time warner's programming. those costs would be passed down to the consumer. but at&t argued the merger would allow them to deliver more affordable poe gr ablable progr internet. and that this deal is considered what is called a vertical merger, meaning two companies in the same industry who don't directly compete. during the 2016 campaign, then candidate donald trump said he would oppose the deal because it would concentrate too much power in the hands of too few. but at a press conference yesterday, on monday, at&t's ceo randall stephenson said he didn't know if the lawsuit was all about cnn, but, gayle, he did say that selling the network was a nonstarter. >> all right, thank you very much, julianna. the white house is
7:16 am
designated north korea as a state sponsor of terrorism. south korea welcomed president trump's new move to pressure north korean leader kim jong-un and said it will contribute to peaceful denuclearization. china says that more could be done. margaret brennan is at the white house with the latest on this story. margaret, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. it has been more than 60 days since north korea launched a missile and that's why this designation is potentially provocative. because it's meant in part to test just how much pressure kim jong-un will take before he agrees to negotiate. >> the united states is designating north korea as a state sponsor of terrorists. >> reporter: president trump said putting north korea back on the terror black list was part of his maximum pressure campaign to isolate kim jong-un. >> in addition to threatening the world by nuclear devastation, north korea has repeatedly supported acts of international terrorism including assassinations on
7:17 am
foreign soil. >> reporter: specifically one state sponsor's murder, that of leader kim jong-un's half brother. earlier this year, his killing was caught on security cameras as two women smeared vx nerve agent on his face at a malaysian airport. >> as we take this action today, our thoughts turn to otto warmbier, wonderful young man. >> reporter: otto, a college student who died following abuse in a north korean labor camp. a legal standard for other countries on the black list lie syria and iran. this designation allowed the u.s. to impose more sanctions on north korea. already the world's most sanctioned regime. >> the practical effects may be limited but we hopefully are closing off a few loopholes. >> reporter: but secretary of state rex tillerson admitted it is largely symbolic. >> the north koreans have demonstrated they have enormous
7:18 am
capacity to withstand a lot. they'll make their people pay. >> reporter: the treachery department will make public today just what those new sanctions will look like. we've also learned that president trump is expected to speak by phone with russia's vladimir putin a day after he met with syrian dictator bashar al assad. the u.s. and russia are trying to map out a political transition in syria to end the war. >> all right, margaret, thank you so much. time is running out for rescuers from the u.s. and other countries to find argentina's missing sub marriage. the last communication with the san juan was six days ago when the crew reported a battery failure. argentina's navy says the sub cannot stay submerged for more than seven days without coming up for air. families of the 44 crew members had an emotional meeting with argentina's president at a naval base. investigators this morning are looking into the cause of a deadly explosion at a new york cosmetics factory. at least one person is dead and more than 30 others are hurt, including seven firefighters. people on the scene reported

"the post" reports the woman accused rose of unwanted sexual advances towards them, including lewd phone calls, walking around naked in their presence or groping. the story details instances where he brought women to his home on long island to discuss jobs. one woman said he appeared before her in an untethered
8:03 am
bathrobe, naked underneath, and attempted to put his hand down her pants. she said she pushed his hands away and wept throughout the encounter. all of the accusers worked or tried to work for charlie rose, which is produced by his production company. pbs and bloomberg have suspended distribution of the program. rose said in a statement yesterday evening, "it is essential that these women know i hear them and that i deeply apologize for my inappropriate behavior. i am greatly embarrassed. i have behaved incensensitively times and i accept responsibility for that, though i do not believe that all of these allegations are accurate. i always felt that i was pursuing shared feelings, even though i now realize i was mistaken." cbs news released a statement saying rose is "suspended immediately while we look into this matter. these allegations are extremely disturbing, and we take them very seriously." the "washington post" reporter who broke the story told us that she received more than a dozen e-mails from other women who now want to speak with her.
8:04 am

started coming out i realized i wasn't the only one and more than 140 women have now come forward and usa gymnastics has done nothing and i really believe that the entire board needs to resign. there have been changes at fox, there have been changes at the wine steven company and usa gymnastics is just going on with business as usual and it's hurtful to me as a victim. >> while we have victims or survivors coming forward and saying metoo, we need men to say, i did that. we need men to step forward and to see themselves in these stories. >> i think that there are a lot of men that are in shock as to what they believe normal behaifz yo -- behavior was. harvey is an extreme case, a sexual predator and for somebody to say i grew up in a sexually
8:35 am
promi promiscuous time is bull especially somebody that's in media and looks at the foreground of culture and also politics. >> we're different ages but we know about anita hill, we know about bill clinton, we know about bill cosby. what makes this moment different sf. >> the proliferation of social media and media outlets because back in the day if i wanted to say something, what was i going to do? what's different is we have a way to express our voices. what's also different about this moment is women are rallying around each other. >> pandora's box is opened and pandora is pissed. we have to ban together and now our foot is firmly in the door. now what do we do? okay? certain things happened then but this is now. what do i do and what do i say to my daughters, what do you say do your readers? >> do you think that young
8:36 am
women, the readers of teen vogue is more forthright about what's happening in their bodies than older women. >> yes, absolutely, but i think one thing i want to kind of put forward into this conversation is that it happens to strong powerful women too. and so i think this -- it's important, this messaging about, you know, we need more women in these leadership polsitions, we need more women on boards but it might still happen to you. >> that's actually the reason i spoke up because i was sexually harassed after already raising over $100 million for my company, after having a successful company, and after i refused this investor's sexual advantage -- advances he called my board members and told them i was being unresponsive and should likely be fired. so he tried to come after my career when i rejected him. >> what was your reaction to that? >> i decided the reaction had to
8:37 am
be 100% transparency. so i went to my board and i showed the text messages that i had received and shared the experience that i'd had and honestly my board members were shocked and we decided as a board to take immediate action together. >> for me as a woman who's dealt with some degree of it and funny enough i actually saw the person that i've had an encounter with on the red carpet walking into the winner of the year awards. a and at that moment, someone leading the resistance for this generation, i felt conflicted. i haven't addressed it with this person. i'm still wrestling with it. how many other women feel that way? how many other women who are standing up and retweeting are still traumatized and still trying to unpack what happened? >> we talk about what happens next. and we talk about that in the context of people outside immediate victim hood, but what happens next for victims? how do you feel since these allegations have been made
8:38 am
public? >> i've just come around to the anger and i really, really struggle and i don't know if it's ever going to go away. and i think that's an important thing for people to understand that this doesn't just dissipate the moment you speak up. it's almost a moment that you speak up that you can actually start to process. >> do you think you can get to a point where this isn't the thing that you think defines you? >> i hope so. i really do. >> you will. >> yeah, and i -- seeing you guys and just listening to everything that you've been talking about, it's -- it almost makes me want to cry because i know that we can do what we need to do to make sure this never happens again. so that not one person has to come up and say, you know, metoo. and i am just very empowered by listening to you guys.
8:39 am
>> according to multiple reports jessica howard's former team doctor is expected to plead guilty to first degree criminal sexual conduct charges in a michigan court tomorrow. in a statement to cbs this morning usa gymnastics said, our athletes are our priority and we are committed to promoting an environment of empowerment that encourages speaking up especially on difficult topics like abuse. >> well, jessica certainly put them on notice. i thought she raised a very good point and raised some troubling allegations about them. but i hope this is more than just a moment of we talk about it and it goes away, that we get used to a new normal. we've all had experiences where somebody does something and you go well, that was bad but it wasn't that bad and now we have to face the fact that it's all bad. so varying degrees but it's all bad. >> and i think it -- this moment is one of catharsis and healing but there is the question, when do the men sit down at the table with ustion because this is a conversation that needs to happen with both genders. >> i said earlier you know, it's
8:40 am
systematic and it's pervasive and what it does is it cripples women's confidence. it cripples their ability to succeed and i think you have understand that. management has to understand that. not just say we're going to create a safe work environment. actually create that environment. >> and these are shattering experiences and we need to make sure people are whole. >> and zero tolerance, but i thought jane had one of the best lines. pandora's box is open and pandora is pissed. >> she's very pissed. >> we should say that was scheduled weeks ago before we are now part of this conversation. >> it came to fruition on friday. good timing to be having this conversation. >> thank you very much. music producer and dj diplo is here. i just saw him in the green room. he's reliving his historic concert in cuba. how he said the people of the

that's the 2015 hit lane on. the song racked up 1 billion

streams. >> how many? >> 1 billion. >> rolling stone calls diplo one of the most in demand producers in music. he's won two grammys. his performances make him one of the forbes highest paid djs in the world. >> he knows what he's doing. a new documentary called give me future explores the performance in cuba last year. major laser was the first american group to play there in more than five decades so the movie looks at the ground breaking performance in havana. >> there's not going to be another first moment. it's not going to be another inaugural concert like this. even if it sucks, let's do that. every artist begs for like a moment in time where people are paying attention to you and you know, when it actually gets to you, you have to seize the moment because it's not going to
8:46 am
happen again. >> he joins us now at the table. good morning to you diplo. >> good morning. >> let's just say it did not suck. and this is what i want you to set the scene for us. because when you guys got there you weren't even sure how many people would show up. you thought maybe ten, maybe 20, but at the end of the day how many people showed up and what did you think when you looked across that sea of humanity? >> it was almost 450,000 people at the concert and for us, we were happy just to have a couple fans there. we weren't sure if anybody in cuba had heard of us, had heard our music. we had no idea how in touch they were with music so we were anticipating something small, cool and once the day started rolling on and people started walking up and it started from 2:00 a.m. just walking up. >> they have such an antiquated internet system so it is surprising they knew about you, but they did. >> we had to make a film about our experiences and the one
8:47 am
thing i told the director is don't make this about us or our vacation, let's find the stories there. and the film ends up like an analog internet. people trade music and they trade information through the island through one usb key up and down the streets. that's how they found about it. >> he sends it and he sends it. it was amazing to see that in 2017. >> the way that music can be in some ways political, because cuba of course is a communist nation with limits on free speech and expression. how did you find that? i mean, performing there? >> well, we had our work hand in hand with the government to arrive there. it wasn't easy. i think our music was a bit easier to accept. we don't have any political views. we don't do profanity, nothing very negative in our music. so they like records like "lean on," records about self-discovery and our content was easy for the government to
8:48 am
help us with. so we were working hand in hand with them and the u.s. government. we found the right way to flavz gait. we were the one group that was able to go there. i think others had tried but we were the one that they chose to represent for the people. >> you guys were huge. >> i liked the title, but give me future, so many people say this is an old country, nobody comes here, but the fact that these guys came here give me a future and make me feel alive. i want to know what that meant to you and what was your takeaway on your end when you left? >> well, there are experiences in cuba, like i said, the rolling stones were there as well and it's always like a nostalgic thing. you go there, you feel the old cars, it's old history and you don't realize there's you know, over 10 million people and there's kids there and they want to be part of the world. they want to feel like they're part of what we're doing and it did feel like the moment. they were part of something that they all know and they all love and for me i just feel like we're so close to cuba, they're our neighbors so it's nice to have empathy for the people there.
8:49 am
they're trying to live just like us every day. something like this happens to them, a giant concert, the one experience, you know, that we had been part of and it's amazing to kind of see the growth and explosion. i thought when we went there this would be the beginning of many concerts. like there would be a huge amount of americans going there, but it really was the only thing and now the doors are kind of closing because we passed different laws really recently about traveling and so we don't know if it's going to happen again. >> you have an amazing career. not bad for a guy who made mix tapes in his bedroom and you are now one of the number one djs in the world. >> it started -- my path was very different than a lot of the musicians but i think just learning my way through it all kind of i think it's exploring different ways to do it. >> thank you diplo. i love that memory of making mix tapes. those were good times. >> give me future is now available on apple music.
