good morning to our viewers in the west. thursday, february 2, 2018. welcome back to "cbs this morning." there's new trouble for youtube over a conspiracy video involving the florida school shooting and the reverend billy graham's impact on christian and political life. we'll talk with a southern baptist leader who says graham may be the most important evangelist in 1900 years. today's "eye opener." >> survivors of the florida school shooting are taking their demands of gun control directly to the people in power. >> it was an extraordinary gesture and shows the president is willing to at least consider taking action. >> the teenagers asked pointed
questions about their positions on assault rifles and school security. they made sure they were heard. . >> when you come to the library you have to go through the cross. that's how billy graham wanted it. his funeral will happen here and we're told the reverend approved every aspect of the plan. >> ply ya dell carmen a popular destination and resort town along the water. one american family of four was on a beach getaway when their trip took a it terrifying turn. >> maddie rooney was amazing after team usa won someone went on her wikipedia and changed her occupation to secretary of defense. >> we love that story. >> a possible sport in the works. >> there is? >> sweep! >> bobsled and skeleton team decided to do a mash up of some of the olympic winter events. >> look what happens at the end. there you go. >> it ends back with curling.
>> i'm norah o'donnell with john dickerson and gayle king. survivors of the massacre in florida are back home after a day of action on gun control took them to the state capitol and white house. president trump listened to emotional stories from the parents of school shooting victims and students who lost their classmates. >> i was actually in the second classroom. i was shot at. in my mind as a kid nothing ever that horrible should ever have to happen to you and you can't even think about it. like, it doesn't even seem real still. >> i was born into a world where i never got to experience safety and peace. there needs to be a significant change in this country because this has to never happen again. and people should be able to feel that when they go to school they can be safe. >> i lost a best friend, who was
practically a brother. and i'm here to use my voice because i know he can't. i know he's with me cheering me on to be strong, but it's hard. how are we not stopping this after columbine, after sandy hook? i'm sitting with a mother who lost her son and it's still happening. >> andrew's daughter meadow was killed in last week's shooting said action is overdue. >> should have been one school shooting and we should have fixed it! and i'm pissed! my daughter i'm not going to see again. she's not here. she's not here. she's at north lauderdale -- whatever it is, king david cemetery. that's where i go to see my kid now. >> alex said the government
needs to address school safety first, not gun laws. the president will sit down with state and local officials to continue the discussion on gun violence. margaret brennan is at the white house with the president's response to the latest mass shooting. good morning. >> good morning. well the white house says that many of the parkland survivors who met with the president yesterday had personally written letters asking to be part of the conversation. others who had lived through the sandy hook and columbine massacres became advocates for gun control and school safety and their stories had an impact on the president who tweeted yesterday, i will always remember the time i spent today with courageous students, teachers and families. so much love in the midst of so much pain we must not let them down. now, one of the president's suggestions was to allow teachers or staff who have experience with firearms to carry concealed weapons into schools. in a tweet today, he said gun-free school zones are a magnet for bad people. now the president did not
suggest a weapons ban but did pledge to strengthen background checks and look into changing the age limit for gun purchases. shortly after that televised listening session an nra spokesperson issued a statement arguing that changing age restrictions would deprive law abiding 18 to 20-year-old of their, quote, constitutional rights to self-protection. the president closed the session saying the world is watching and, norah, we'll have to wait to see if there's any action. >> all right. margaret, thank you so much. nra ceo wayne lapierre is talking this morning more than a week after the shooting at stoneman douglas high. he spoke to delegates at the conservative conference known as cpac outside washington a short time ago. >> our jewelry stores, all over this country, are more important than our children. our banks, our airports, our nba games, our nfl games, our office
buildings, our movie stars, our politicians, they're all more protected than our children at school. local law enforcement, moms and dads, they all must come together to implement the very best strategy to harden their schools, including effective, trained, armed security, that will absolutely protect every innocent child. >> an nra spokeswoman said last night that the organization supports president trump's order for the justice department to decide if bump stocks should be illegal. those accessories allowing rapid fire were used in the las vegas massacre but not in parkland, florida. >> the public will have a chance to pay respects to the reverend billy graham before he's buried next friday. his body will lie in repose on monday and tuesday at his library in charlotte, north carolina. the famed egan glis influence
transcended not just religion but politics. he met and advised every president from harry trueman to barack obama. while his counsel was bipartisan his movement became a force courted by republican candidates. russell moore president of the religious liberty commission of the southern baptist convention. thanks for being here. >> good morning. >> billy graham's influence on christian life in america, how big with was it? >> i think it was massive and partly because of his uniqueness as a communicator, innovating with technologies, a part of it is because of how the same he was of the rest of the christian message. never cut corners on got sell, never embarrassed about the message that people can find forgiveness through the shedded blood of jesus christ. that was the message he gave over and over again. the person drug addicted in the homeless shelter and the united states senator or the billionaire find the same message coming from billy graham of the grace of god through the good news of jesus christ.
>> interesting to think of him in those terms because you've called him the most significant christian evangelist since the apostle paul. >> right. >> i mean, that's high praise. >> right. >> that's wow. >> saw jesus come back so that's -- >> i think part of that is because of the time in which he emerged help was able to use technologies that simply weren't available at any other time in history. >> right. using radio, television. >> those are similar to in the new testament time the use of roman and things that hadn't existed before. he used radio, television, and later years even the internet and was always a step ahead of everyone else, but always getting back to that old-time message of what the good news of christ is. >> could it be that billy graham had an iphone, that would be nice to know. >> i would not be surprised. >> he once said that one of his big regrets, if he had to talk about regrets in life, he crossed the line into politics. >> yeah. >> he was so revered and admired on both sides of the aisle. why do you think he regretted that? >> he looked back at the tapes during watergate, his close
association with richard nixon which was more personal than it was political, but i think later he looked back and saw how those lines can become blurred and people can easily confuse a partisan political agenda for the kingdom of god and, of course, transcends all of that. so billy graham's primary goal was to reach people all people with the message of god's love, of the day of judgment that's coming for all people, and of the freedom that comes through forgiveness through the cross. so he, i think, more than made up for whatever errors he might have made in his past. >> christ's msage love thy neighbor, don't judge or be prideful. when you talk to officials now, that does not exist. does that argue for a gram-like figure to jump into politics or stay away? >> we need people in politics who have conscience and guided
by morality and by the spirit of god. we need people to stand outside of politics speaking a word of grace and redemption and of judgment. that's what graham was able to do. he was able to say what we all know, we're sinners, we know that no matter how much we try to say everything is relative and everything is fine, we know that's not true in our own hearts. at the same time he loved people. so billy graham was never angry, billy graham was nef resentful. he was never warring against the culture in the world around him. he was john 3:16, he loved the world because god loves the world enough to say come to christ. >> i saw an old interview that diane sawyer had done with him years ago and said when the time comes he doesn't want people to say nice things about him because he didn't deserve it. what he wants to hear from the lord is, well done. well done my servant. >> yeah. >> you knew him personally. what stands out to you about him? >> what stood out to me was the gravity. first time i met him i was in my
early 20s, young ministry and walking into the room it was almost like coming into the room with an old testament prophet in one sense. at the same time there was this warmth. i think of him sort of like -- i heard someone mention a preacher in london many years ago and said he was a steamroller but a gentle steamroller. i think that was true of billy graham. gentleness and warmth but the gravity of the message was overwhelming. >> and still endures. we need that message these days too. >> indeed. >> he has had a profound impact over the past century. thank you. >> thank you very much, russety moore. >> youtube faces criticism after the number one trending video on its side spread conspiracy theories about a florida school shooting survivor. issie is in our toyota green room to

youtube faces strong criticism after it spread conspiracy theorys in the aftermath of the deadly school shooting in florida. the top trending video on the platform yesterday falsely accused survivor david hogg of being a crisis actor. that video was viewed more than 200,000 times before it was taken down. >> the yub tuoutube spokespersod this shid owe should never have appeared in trending. it was miss classified. last month logan paul removed a video he posted of a suicide
victim. is is lapows issi lapowsky is a seen your writer at "wired." it ended up becoming the most popular video on the website. is no one watching it? >> there are. basically this video was a clip of david hogg speaking to local news affiliate years ago about an incident he saw on the beach. so youtube's algorithms look at that and say, okay, this is a legitimate news source. then they look at the caption to the video. the caption said david hogg, the actor. there's nothing harassing about those words. for some it's a fact, for some it's a compliment. they don't know he is a survivor of a school shooting. >> people are unwittingly liking and sharing propaganda. >> exactly.
that falls to the yub tube moderators around the world. youtube will say we have people monitoring the videos and flagging, but not everybody has the context about this specific conspiracy right here in the united states. they say they're adding moderator, scaling up to 10,000 moderators this year. the question is with 4,000 going up on youtube, can they really catch this stuff. what i've been arguing is none of these trending tools online are really -- you know, they don't exist in nature. the tech companies created them. they have to start thinking is the upside, showing people relevant videos, outweighing the downside which shows complete conspiracy theories that are really harmful. >> what are the questions companies need to be asking? it's so disturbing it was trending and people were believing this. >> they need to think through
engagement versus fact. they need to think through what is the real public service that these trending tools are providing. they created them with good intentions. they're not bad people. they're thinking if facebook and youtube is getting their way, we can have something eakin to the front page and that becomes this trending. they can't pull it aside because of the sheer content out there. they have to ask themselves whether it's responsible to let these exist. >> is it youtube's policy to create this kind of video? >> last year youtube instituted a new application of its harassment policy. if you post a picture of a victim of a tragedy, we're going to hold it as harassment. it's not that it's untrue. they say they don't want to be the arbiters of truth but youtube has decided if you're playing a hoax on the victim of a tragedy, that's clearly
