7:03 am
>> welcome to "cbs this morning." as you wake up in the west, it looks like another crazy day on wall street. [ bell ringing ] the markets opened just about half an hour ago and briefly dropped over 500 points, more than 2%, in the first minute of trading. >> but right now, the dow jones industrial average is surging up more than 200 points. that's a lot better than yesterday when the dow lost more points in one day than ever before. >> analysts say not to worry, this is a long overdue correction after months of stock market gains. bianna golodryga is here with what's driving the markets now. bianna, good morning. >> good morning to you, gayle. buckle up. stock market dive rattled investors. this morning, many are asking if things are looking up on main
7:04 am
street, why is wall street seemingly so panicked? monday's opening bell brought a roller coaster day on wall street. at one point, the dow plunged as much as 1,600 points, the biggest one-day loss in the index's history. it was down 1,175 points, enough to wipe out all gains since the start of 2018. >> we're doing fantastically. the stock market hit another all-time high. >> reporter: the president regularly takes credit for the market's success. the dow has risen around 8,000 points since he took office. but in response to yesterday's sell-off, the white house said in a statement the president's focus is on our long-term economic fundamentals which remain exceptionally strong. >> the economy is still booming. >> some experts agree. joe saluzzi is a partner at trading. >> the fundamentals, they're still there, but a correction was needed to kind of get the
7:05 am
excesses off. >> unemployment has fallen to a 17-year low but wages have remained stagnant. until january when they rose by 2.9%. former chair of the federal reserve janet yellen was asked on "cbs sunday morning" when stocks were artificially high. >> i don't want to say too high but i do want to say high. price/earnings ratios are near the high end of their historical ranges. >> earlier this morning, overseas markets from britain to japan reported significant losses. hong kong's main index fell more than 5% after yesterday's huge sell-off. european exchanges, which open later, declined by around 2%. we will continue watching the markets. john. >> thanks, bianna. cbs news financial contributor mellody hobson is with us now. good morning. so stocks are now up. why is that? >> i think that is because people have recognized that yesterday was perhaps a bit
7:06 am
overdone. and are going in buying on the debt, which has been something that has worked very well for the last decade. >> what happened yesterday? in other words, is it -- if the economy is strong, the market may have a negative reaction. those two things may not be linked. >> a little bit of counterintuitive things going on which is too much of a good thing being bad. the story around the unemployment numbers were very good. the story around wage inflation, wages going up, got people a little scared. inflation is back. that means corporate profits will go down. that means the federal reserve will start raising rates also to make sure to keep inflation in check. so there was a bit of a reaction to that. we saw that play out both on friday and on monday. also keep in mind, we've gone for almost ten years without a correction. with the market going down at least 10%. and so we were long overdue for something to happen. >> it's interesting, despite all the market hysteria, yesterday, it is also true that the last 18 months have been one of the least volatile periods for the
7:07 am
stock market in modern times. global growth expected to be 4%. corporate earnings are expected to go up. the fundamentals are still very strong. >> very, very strong. so just if you look at company's reporting, half of companies have reported for the quarter. 80% of them have beat expectations. they're expecting the revenues to be up 7.5%, their profits to be up 13% year over year. so it is -- things have been going very well. here's the interesting thing about volatility though. volatility has been almost nil in the stock market. but crazy around the world when you look at the political environment. so in some ways, some are saying maybe the volatility in the stock market is catching up with our politics. >> what's your overall message, everybody settle down, it's going to be okay? >> yes, be calm and carry on. >> as simple as that? what if people are worried about their 401ks? yesterday, a lot of people very concerned. >> remember what you do with the 401k plan. you buy consistently every two weeks out of your paycheck. which means when markets are
7:08 am
high, you buy fewer cha eer sha. over the long term, you average at a better price. you do not want to change from that strategy right now. it's called dollar cost averaging. let it work in your favor. this is not a time to make changes. be calm, as i said. >> good news, thank you. mellody hobson, thank you. president trump will have to decide this week whether to declassify a democratic response to a memo alleging fbi misconduct in the russia investigation. he declassified that republican memo on friday. where yesterday the president blasted the lead author of the response. then he used the word treason to describe the democrat's chilly reaction to parts of his state of the union address. he also called them un-american. margaret brennan is at the white house. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. president trump was in cincinnati yesterday for what was billled as an official speech on tax reform, but then he quickly went off script and he attacked democrats as if it were a campaign rally. it is a sharp departure from
7:09 am
that bipartisan call for unity he made just last week in his state of the union address. >> they were like death. and un-american. >> reporter: the president slammed democratic lawmakers, including minority leaders nancy pelosi and chuck schumer, for not clapping during his state of the union address. >> somebody said treasonous. i mean, yeah, i guess why not, you know. can we call that treason? why not. i mean, they certainly didn't seem to love our country very much. >> reporter: another target of his ire was congressman adam schiff. the president called him little and one of the biggest liars and leakers in washington. schiff believes his committee's investigation of trump campaign ties to russia and the fbi probe led by special counsel robert mueller are closing in on the president. >> there is a rising sense in panic clearly within the white house and as well on the hill. >> reporter: the house intelligence committee voted monday to release a ten-page
7:10 am
memo from democrats meant to rebut republican accusations of political bias at the fbi. when it requested warrants to spy on former trump campaign aide carter page. its release depends on whether president trump declassifies it. in cincinnati, the president seemed to celebrate the release of the republican memo. >> oh, but did we catch them in the act or what. you know what i'm talking -- ooh, did we catch them in the act. they are very embarrassed. they never thought they were going to get caught. we caught 'em. okay, we caught 'em. so much fun. we're, like, the great sleuth. >> reporter: now, carter page who had been on the fbi's radar since back in 2013 for past contact with russian operatives said last night that in his view, anyone on the trump campaign who had any kind of contact with russia, positive or negative, was automatically a target. and, norah, he called it all just a witch-hunt. >> all right, margaret.
7:11 am
let me ask you about what "the new york times" is reporting this morning, that the president's lawyers are advising him against sitting down for a wide-ranging interview with special counsel mueller. what have you learned about this? >> well, the president has said a few times now that he would be willing to speak with special counsel mueller, but only if his lawyers agree. and those lawyers are still discussing whether this is a good strategy and they're trying to narrow the scope of questioning to avoid any kind of legal pitfalls. here's what we know about the ground rules that they are looking at. as they make that decision. they want to see whether the accusation is one, a serious crime, two, whether there's proof that there's no other way to get answers other than from the president himself. and three, they want to avoid any kind of fishing expedition. so yesterday, president trump's lawyer john dowd told cbs news that discussions are still ongoing about a possible interview. >> all right, margaret, thank you. a 12-year-old alabama boy is among the latest victims of the
7:12 am
deadly flu epidemic. aaron masterson die ed sunday fm flu complications. the cdc reported pediatric flu deaths. demarco morganlehigh, pennsylvania. >> reporter: the experts say it could last until may. here at lehigh valley hospital, they are at capacity and they are running out of space. >> this is the mobile surge hospital. >> reporter: pennsylvania's lehigh valley hospital set up the surge patient tent to deal with the influx of flu patients. dr. david burmeister is an emergency medicine doctor here. >> this flu season seems to be quite a bit worse than what we've seen in the past. >> reporter: the number of people hospitalized with flu-like symptoms is the highest in almost a decade. the cdr reports nearly 15,000 patients have been admitted for
7:13 am
the flu so far this season. >> the patient populations that we get most concerned about are certainly pediatrics. >> reporter: at least 53 children have died from the flu since october. 12-year-old aaron masterson died sunday from complications with the flu. the alabama boy was born with cystic fibrosis, a rare genetic disorder that amplified the effects of the virus. will had been friends with aaron for seven years. >> it was definitely hard. i cried a lot. yes. and prayed tons. >> reporter: will's mom brandy says she considered aaron a second son. >> aaron was a giver, an entertainer and he just loved everybody. he loved his mommy. >> we're only one of the families, the many families that were impacted and touched by aaron's life. there are hundreds more stories out there. >> reporter: now, aaron's family
7:14 am

7:15 am
colorado springings. >> we've got officers that have been shot. >> reporter: the first 911 call came from an apartment building near the shooting. one civilian, one colorado springs police officer and two el paso county sheriff's deputies were injured during the confrontation. the suspect was shot and killed. along with deputy micah flick. the father of 7-year-old twins was killed on his 11th anniversary as a police officer. >> deputy flick was an outstanding member of my agency. and he will be missed. >> reporter: flick is the third colorado police officer gunned down in the line of duty in the last five weeks. douglas county sheriff deputy zackari parish was killed on new year's eve. and deputy health gumm was killed on january 24th. >> this has happened al too often here. >> reporter: randy schott and his son were among the hundreds of people who braved the cold to pay their respects. >> deputy flick made the ultimate sacrifice, taking care of all of us. so the least we can do is come
7:16 am
out here and say thank you. >> reporter: mourners waved flags and saluted the passing cars as a solemn police process for flick rolled away from the hospital. >> tonight there is no distinction between our uniforms, state patrol, sheriff's office and the colorado springs police department. our hearts are all broken. >> reporter: colorado governor john hickenlooper ordered all flags in the state to fly at half-staff. he also beiacknowledged the pol killings are having a grave impact on the people of colorado. >> just a reminder that our cops put their lives in danger every single day on the job. >> for seemingly routine things and it ends up at the end of a routine stop, ends up something. >> now two young children without a dad. >> ripples through generations. >> thank you. investigators say train signals were shut down at the time to let crews install new technology that might have prevented the accident. the amtrak train was diverted on to a side track by a switch

"48 hours" broke the news last week that woods' husband, actor robert wagner, is now a person of interest in the case. in 1981, they were on a yacht with actor christopher walken and the boat's captain when wood went overboard, often the california coast. her death was ruled an accident at the time but investigators said yesterday that wagner's story is suspicious. >> we told the original investigators, since then, really don't add up to what we found or we found by talking to the other people that weekend.
7:18 am
>> have you seen a spike in all of the information coming your way since the "48 hours" broadcast? >> we have got a lot of calls. people calling again saying they have information. yes are. >> wagner has denied involvement. he hasn't spoken to investigators since they reopened the case six years ago. police in massachusetts investigating a burglary at the home of patriots star rob gronkowski. he returned home yesterday with his new england teammates after their super bowl loss to the philadelphia eagles in minnesota, we all saw that game. police say the break-in occurred when gronk was away at the super bowl and some items were stolen. authorities are not saying what was taken. the home is just a few miles from gillette stadium. what a crappy night for him. first the team loses. then you come home and your home is burglarized from people who obviously knew he wasn't there. >> i'm just reading the foxboro police chief said they're not going to say what was stolen, but that's investigative

you always say you'll get a helicopter, and you got it zero times. >> what you gonna do? >> decorate. >> say it again. >> decorate. >> what? >> decorate! >> tambourines, tambourines, tambourines. >> sitting on the couch painting. >> i got the money. i got a zamboni. a tank makes three. a tank, man. >> why do you keep falling asleep? >> i was up playing this video game all night, and i haven't slept much. >> i see how every one of you copied me. >> i'm not your granny, but if you'd like me to use her voice, i will continue to do it. >> can you pretend to sneeze on

my microphone. >> you didn't think it would sound like that, did you? >> that's the team at the youtube channel bad lip reading, they're at it again. they've got a new video out with their very funny take on the nfl season. every year bad lip reading puts together clips from the nfl and adds its own version of what the players, coaches, and refs are saying. i would love to see how they do that. they're dead on. hey, boo, how you doing? it's so well done. >> i feel like they're in a room, there's a lot of pizza boxes, doritos. and they -- >> red bull? >> adult berchlverages. welcome back. >> time for headlines. "u.s. news and world report" says lululemon's ceo abruptly resigned, and it will pay him $5 million. laurent potdevin stepped down yesterday. the clothing company said he had fallen short of its standards of conduct. it did not offer details.
8:32 am
he was unavailable for comment. the "washington post" reports the arctic is full of toxic mercury, and climate change is going to release it. a new study says there are 32 million gallons of mercury trapped in permafrost. that's the equivalent of 50 olympic swimming pools. as the earth's climate warms, some of the mercury will be released into the environment. the impact on people and food supplies is not known. and our partners at the bbc report on the death of british-born actor john mahoney. mahoney mahoney is best known for playing the cranky dad on the tv series "frasier." >> you should go. the birthday only comes around once every four years. as a matter of fact, this day only comes around once every four years. it's like a free day, a good night. we should do something special. it's leap year, take a leap. >> i was just about to say the same thing to you. >> he was nominated for two emmy awards and appeared in many
8:33 am
movies including "the american president" and "tin men." he died on sunday while in hospice care in chicago. he was 77. i never knew that he was from britain. i loved his character. >> i didn't either. he will be missed. >> he will. check companies are under increasing pressure to address what many insiders describe as digital addiction. new research shows 68% of american adults use facebook. 74% check the site every day. we reported yesterday on former high-tech industry employees launching a so-called truth about tech campaign, warning against constant connectivity. they accuse companies like facebook of fostering addictive behavior by "making deliberate decision that's do great harm." facebook's head of global safety joins us now. good morning. >> good morning. >> tell us the charges of addiction, that facebook tries to get people addicted. >> first of all, there's a lot of misinformation and
8:34 am
miscommunication about the concept. addiction and how -- concept of addiction and how people are engaging on line. we at facebook try to make sure people engage in a positive, safe way. on facebook we changed the way your news feed works to promote conversations with family and friends. >> the meaningful conversations may draw me in even deeper. those are what you want to know about. therefore, wouldn't that make me more addicted? >> again, i think that we know that people are utilizing these technologies, we take the issue seriously. we've invested in research to look at these issues. we're trying to develop ways that our technology is meaningful and positive for people. changing news feed or recently we launched messenger kids. i don't know how much you know about that. but that's a video chat app for kids that is actually -- it has no ads. it is parent controlled. really designed to figure out what people need and to make sure that we're creating a positive experience. >> we have done stories about that. has facebook done its own
8:35 am
research into tech addiction? >> we've recently put a lot of money investing into this research. we've done some research. what we do find is that people engage in different ways. so i'll give an example. some sometimes we see when people are post being something that may distress them that people will actually respond in a really positive way and provide support. those are the kind of connections that we want to ensure that we're helping to support and create. >> i've been looking at some of the studies, and one that's been cited by the association for psychological science found that nearly half of teens who spend more than five hours on electronic devices report feeling lonely, planned or attempted suicide. too much screen time is a bad thing. does facebook agree with that? >> i think this is really a question for parents, right. every parent knows their child best. they know how much time they think a child should spend on line and how they want them using those technologies. what we're trying to do is
8:36 am
really give parents control. so for instance today, on safer internet day, a day that marks online safety and being responsible with online technologies, we're launching something called parent conversations to ensure that parents have the tools that they need. parent conversations give parents the latest in academic research, the latest in research from child development experts to really give them the tools they need to make those decisions wisely. >> as a parent, i don't want more tools. i want to stop having to dive in front of the phone that my children can't get away from. do you worry that that kind of reaction may cause parents to throw the phone across the room and that's it, no more facebook, no more nothing? >> i'll give an example from my own -- with my own child. so -- >> how old is your child? >> she's now college age. we actually grew up with these technologies sort of learning with these technologies. i really understand as a mom deeply what it is to not know necessarily how to do this and where do i get advice, which is
8:37 am
part of what's behind all this work. with my daughter, when we gave her her phone, we saw the glow from her room at night. i really wanted her of to downtime before bed. and so we made a rule -- about an hour before bed, phones down. her first thing she said was, well, you don't do that. so that was a good lesson. i had to learn to put my phone down, which we both did. we put it on the nightstand. and that's where it went down. i did go to check e-mail before bed. then again, i put it down which was important. >> you're saying do what i do -- >> yes. >> parents should set their examples, what you're saying. yesterday we had people at the table from truth about tech. they were say figure facebook is serious about this -- saying if facebook is serious about this, they have to change their business model. do you think that's necessary? are there plans for facebook to do that? >> well, i think two examples that -- that i gave are looking at how we utilize news feed. and figuring out we promote meaningful connections is one thing.
8:38 am
by the way, we knew when we did that that was probably going to decrease the amount of time spent on our platform, and it did. that seemed like the right decision. >> is there evidence that -- say the model is not altruistic. facebook i think grew up as a way for people to share and connect. now it's a way to make money, an advertising company. facebook made $40 billion in advertising. you want people on there as often as possible because it helps you sell more ads. >> well, i think -- again, i think we've made changes to ensure, for instance, in news feed. but i do think we're really looking to create positive connections. and that -- that's a long-term business model. i mean, doing what's right for this is actually in our best -- is in our best interests. it is in our best interests for people, as well as for the community of people using facebook for the connections to be meaningful. for people to see value. and that's what we're trying to accomplish. >> to connect on that level.

♪ oprah's picking a new book for her highly anticipated book club selection. her first 2018 choice is a work of fiction described as a love story warped by racial injustice. and now only on "cbs this morning," oprah reveals her newest book club pick. >> hello, my ctm friends. i am really delighted to be able to be here to share my next book club selection. you know i don't choose them often because i'm always looking for the book that's going to resonate with me, that i believe is also going to resonate with lots of other people. the kind of thing you want to pass on to all of your friends. i have found it after much, much, much searching. it's "an american marriage" by tayari jones. tayari jones. and i have to tell you, it is intriguing. it's a love story that also has a -- a huge layer of suspense.
8:44 am
and it's also so current and so really now that i could not put it down and have already passed it on to lots of my friends. and so i know, certainly believe that you're going to love it. "an american marriage." tayari jones. >> "an american marriage" is tayari jones' fourth novel. it is on sale today whenever you like to buy your books. she joins us at the table. congratulations. >> wow. >> thank you. >> let me tell you something -- it's difficult for oprah to find a book that she likes. it takes months and months, the team works on it. when she finds it she gets major attitude if she gives it to you and don't read it right away. she is very excited about this book. what i find interesting is that you got the idea from seeing a couple argue in the mall. >> yes, i was in atlanta, my hometown. and i was trying to write a novel. i wanted to write a novel, you know, that was more timely, dealing with the issues of the day.
8:45 am
i couldn't find the people for the story. and i went to the mall and saw a couple. they were obviously in love and in trouble. she was beautifully dressed, cashmere coat, the whole nine. he looked fine. fine. she looked wonderful. >> you said he had scuffed shoes? >> yes, but she was so put together. he looked like he'd had a long day -- perhaps a long life even though they were the same age. >> what did you hear that you thought there's a book there? >> she said, "roy, you know you wouldn't have waited on me for seven years." and i was intrigued because i didn't know roy, but i felt fairly confident that he wouldn't wait on her for seven years. but he said, "what are you talking about? this wouldn't have happened to you in the first place." >> the idea was born. >> so the story is about this couple that you saw, but in your book, their lives are turned upside down because roy is sent to prison for a crime that he didn't commit. >> yes, and they're only married 18 months. as she -- she says, i was a newlywed. i was still combing rice from my
8:46 am
hair. and he is given a lengthy sentence that's over ten times the time they've been married. but they are married. so the question is, can this marriage survive? even if this marriage doesn't survive, can this relationship survive? then can this man survive? >> and not to spoil it, but it comes out of this argument, just a regular old couples argument that they have and it ripples out. you saw it at the lenox mall, why decide to put it inside of an argument, or were you -- this is what real people do, and these are real people's arguments? >> for me when i see two people arguing and they both seem to have a legitimate point, i know i have a novel. for me a novel cannot have a clear person who's right or wrong. and i could see both their sides of it. and i had already -- i had taken a fellowship at harvard at the radcliffe institute to research lawful incarceration but had the problem but not the people. you know, i was always told by
8:47 am
my mentor, he said, write about people and their problems, don't write about problems and their people. >> whoa. >> and so at your harborvieward fellowship -- harvard fellowship, what did you learn about american prisons and what's going on? >> i learned really -- you know, horrifying things like america incarcerates more of its citizens than any other developed country. louisiana has the largest prison population in the world. i learned all these really shocking statistics, but i was shocked, i was outraged. but statistics did not inspire me. as a novelist, it's people that inspire me. >> yeah. i love -- there's one line that caught my eye, you said, "roy caught her breath with a kiss that tasted like desire streaked with anger." that doesn't seem like a good place to be. to me. >> i feel like he's been in prison and so much of his dreams has hung on this marriage. >> interesting to see how this turns out. i want to know when oprah first called you -- you pick up the phone and it's oprah on the
8:48 am
line. >> i was driving my car. i thought it was lee haber calling -- >> book editor. >> sometimes i review for the magazine. i thought she needed me to pinchhit something last minute. that's why she was calling so late. i was like, hey? and it was oprah coming through my car stereo. and i live in las vegas, and i pulled over. i pulled over -- i couldn't continue to drive. and i pulled over on a dark road. and it was oprah winfrey. talking to me. i'm trying to talk to her. and people are like tapping on my window asking me do i have a quarter, do i have a dollar. i'm shoeing them away. i'm trueing -- i'm shooing them away. i'm trying to talk to oprah. the most exciting thing that ever happened to me in my life. >> i know she was very excited to pick this book. she likes it very, very much. i can't wait to see people's reaction. >> beautifully done. really beautifully done. >> thank you. >> called "an american marriage." very nicely done. you can visit
