knew about his efforts to try to cover up his behavior. and a lot of people who didn't do anything about it. >> reporter: according to the "times" investigators interviewed 11 women and found their accounts to be credible. the times says a lawyer has identified a total of 17 women. among the new allegations in the report, moonves had a cbs employee on call to perform oral sex on him and received oral sex from at least four cbs employees under circumstances that sound transactional. in 2017 at a variety magazine event, moonves said this about sexual harassment. >> but i think it's important that a company's culture will not allow for this. >> reporter: the times also reports that investigators found at least one cbs board member knew of the sexual misconduct allegations about moonves before joining the board in 2007, and that last year cbs's former head
3:20 am

3:24 am
to be contaminated with trace amounts of a chemical with a potential low risk of causing cancer. it's not just mylan. at least 30 types of a valsartan-based medication has been recalled since july. the drugs are classified as a.r.b.s, one of many types of medications used to lower blood pressure. in july the fda found it was manufactured by a chinese company and in september placed imports from that company on hold. but the agency said patients should continue taking their current medicine until the pharmacy or doctor replaces the recalled bottles. the agency says there is sufficient supply and there are many alternatives on the market. the risk of getting cancer from the contaminated drugs is very small, so patients shouldn't stop taking it. in fact, jeff, stopping blood pressure medications abruptly can cause risks, including heart attack, stroke and heart failure. >> okay, a very good point there at the end. tara, thank you very much. still ahead here tonight, an update on the volcano that has

>> announcer: this is the "cbs >> the body of an american patriot, george h.w. bush, has been flown to his beloved texas for a funeral that will happen later this morning. at a memorial in washington yesterday at the national cathedral, his son, former president george w. bush, delivered the eulogy, and it was something to see. >> a few years later he was alone in the pacific on a life raft, praying that his rescuers would find him before the enemy did. god answered those prayers. it turned out he had other plans for george h.w. bush. for dad's part, i think those brushes with death made him cherish the gift vowed to live every day to the fullest.
3:41 am
dad was always busy, a man in constant motion, but never too busy to share his love of life with those around him. he taught us to love the outdoors. he loved watching dogs flush a covey. he loved landing the elusive striper. and once confined to a wheelchair, he seemed happiest sitting in his favorite perch on a back porch at walkers point contemplating the majesty of the atlantic. the horizons he saw were bright and hopeful. he was a genuinely optimistic man. and that optimism guided his children and made each of us believe that anything was possible. he continually broadened his horizons with daring decisions. he was a patriot. after high school, he put college on hold and became a navy fighter pilot as world war
3:42 am
ii broke out. like many of his generation, he never talked about rv unti t pubc . we learned of the attack on chichijima, the mission completed, the shoot down. we learned of the death of his crew mates whom he thought about throughout his entire life. and we learned of the rescue. and then another audacious decision. he moved his young family from the comforts of the east coast to odessa, texas. he and mom adjusted to their arid surroundings quickly. he was kind and neighborly to the women he, mom and i shared a small bathroom and duplex. even after he learned their profession, ladies of the night. [ laughter ] dad could relate to people from
3:43 am
all walks of life. he was an empathetic man. he valued character over pedigree, and he was no cynic. he looked for the good in each person, and he usually found it. dad taught us that public service is noble and necessary, that one can serve with integrity and hold true to the important values like faith and family. he strongly believed that it was important to give back to the community and country in which one lived. he recognized that serving others enriched the giver's soul. to us, his was the brightest of a thousand points of light. in victory, he shared credit. when he lost, he shouldered the blame. he accepted that failure is a taught us never to be defined by failure.
3:44 am
he showed us how set backs can strengthen. none of his disappointments could compare with one of life's greatest tragedies, the loss of a young child. jeb and i were too young to remember the pain and agony he and mom felt when our 3-year-old sister died. we only learned later that dad, a man of quiet faith, prayed for her daily. he was sustained by the love of the almighty, and the real and enduring love of her mom. dad always believed that one day he would hug his precious robin again. he loved to laugh, especially at himself. he could tease and needle, but never out of malice. he placed great value on a good joke. so he chose simpson to speak. [ laughter ]
3:45 am
on e-mail, he had a circle of friends with whom he shared or received the latest jokes. his grading system for the quality of the joke was classic george bush. rare 7s and 8s were considered huge winners. most of them off color. george bush knew how to be a true and loyal friend. he nurtured and honored his many friendships with a generous and giving soul. there exist thousands of handwritten notes encouraging or sympathizing or thanking his friends and acquaintances. he had an enormous capacity to give of himself. many a person would tell you that dad became a mentor and a father figure in their life. he listened and he consoled. he was their friend. i think of don rhodes, taylor
3:46 am
blanton, jim nance, arnold schwarzenegger, and perhaps the unlikelyest of all, the man who defeated him, bill clinton. my siblings and i refer to the guys this this group as brothers from other mothers. [ laughter ] he taught us that a day was not meant to be wasted. he played golf at a legendary pace. i always wonder why he insisted on speed golf. he was a good golfer. well, here's my conclusion. he played fast so that he could move on to the next event, to enjoy the rest of the day, to expend his enormous energy, to live it all. he was born with just two settings. full throttle, then sleep. [ laughter ] he taught us what it means to be a wonderful father, grandfather, and greatdfatr. he was firm in his principles and supportive as we began do
3:47 am
seek our own ways. he encouraged and comforted, but never steered. we tested his patience. i know i did. [ laughter ] but he always responded with the great gift of unconditional love. last friday, when i was told he had minutes to live, i called him. the guy answered the phone, said, i think he can hear you, but he hasn't said anything for most of the day. i said, dad, i love you and you've been a wonderful father. and the last words he would ever say on earth were, i love you, too. to us, he was close to perfect, but not totally perfect. his short game was lousy. [ laughter ] he wasn't exactly fred astair on the dance floor. [ laughter ] the man couldn't stomach
3:48 am
vegetables. [ laughter ] especially by the wa he passed e genetic defects along to us. [ laughter ] finally, every day of his 73 years of marriage, dad taught us all what it means to be a great husband. he married his sweetheart. he adored her. he laughed and cried with her. he was dedicated to her totally. in his old age, dad enjoyed watching police show reruns, the volume on high. [ laughter ] all the while holding mom's hand. after mom died, dad was strong, but all he really wanted to do was hold mom's hand again. of course, dad taught me another special lesson. he showed me what it means to be a president who serves with integrity, leads with courage, and acts with love in his heart for the citizens of our country. when the history books are
3:49 am
written, they will say that george h.w. bush was a great president of the united states, a diplomat of unmatched skill, a commander in chief of formidable accomplishment, and a gentleman who executed the duties of his office with dignity and honor. in his inaugural address, the 41st president of the united states said this. we cannot hope only to leave our children a bigger car, a bigger bank account. we must hope to give them a sense of what it means to be a loyal friend, a loving parent, a citizen who leaves his home, his neighborhood and town better than he found it. what do we want the men and women who work with us to say when we are no longer there? that we were more driven to succeed than anyone around us, or that we stopped to ask if a sick child had gotten better, and stayed a moment there to
3:50 am
trade a word of friendship. well, dad, we're going to remember you for exactly that and much more, and we're going to miss you, your decency, sincerity, and kind soul will stay with us forever. so through our tears, let us know the blessings of knowing and loving you, a great and noble man, the best father a son or daughter could have. and in our grief, let us smile knowing that dad is hugging robin and holding mom's hand again. [ applause ] >> the only time there wasn't applause at the memorial, the president of the united states finished the eulogy for his dad, 41. you're watching t my digestive system used to make me feel sluggish but now, i take metamucil every day.
3:51 am
it traps and removes the waste that weighs me down, so i feel lighter. try metamucil, and begin to feel what lighter feels like.
3:52 am
3:53 am
as the nation prepares for the funeral of the 41st president, george h.w. bush, we are hearing a lot of heart warming stories from the people who were the closest to him. like mr. bush's white house photographer, david valdez. >> when he was getting ready to run for president, life magazine wanted to send a photographer up to take some pictures of him. and i talked to barbara bush about it. she said, you ought to just come over 6:00 in the morning the next morning and see what
3:54 am
happens. so i go up there and a few minutes later, the grandchildren started coming in. with all the accomplishments and things that president bush did, he was most proud of being called a husband, a father and a grandfather. a few hours before the beginning of the gulf war, he went walking on the south lawn, and i'd get a photo of him. he was just thinking about sending young men and women off to war. he would go jogging in the morning and maybe play a round ever tennis, then go play golf, then go boating and kind of end the day with a round of horse shoes. the press core would just be dragging behind him because he would do that in rain or shine. mrs. bush always certainly protected him. there was a true love affair. you'd always see them holding hands or patting each other on the back or just making sure that each one of them was okay. working for president bush changed my life forever. having that opportunity to work with him and see him, especially
3:55 am
how he loved and interacted with his family, when you humble yourself under the mighty hand of god, in due time he will exalt you. hi, i'm joel osteen. i'm excited about being with you every week. i hope you'll tune in. you'll be inspired, you'll be encouraged. i'm looking forward to seeing you right here. you are fully loaded and completely equipped for the race that's been designed for you.
3:56 am
3:57 am
only twice in u.s. history has a father and son both been elected president of the united states. in the 1800s it was john adams and john quincey adams, and of course in our lifetime, george bush bishop and george w. bush. norah o'donnell spoke to the younger bush about 41. >> reporter: so much has been written about george herbert walker bush as a president. what was he like as a father? >> he was a great father. if you were to interview my brothers and sister, to a person we would say, couldn't have a better father. and i think the reason why they would say -- i know the reason why i would say it, is because he gave us unconditional love. some of us tested it, i might add. he was -- there was noou about how much he loved us, which i think is a very important gift that a father can give to his >>t's been one of t
3:58 am
joys of my life, my friendship with him. >> he was a good reminder that as fiercely as we may fight on policy and on issues, that ultimately we're americans first. >> when you look back at your father's term in office as president -- >> yeah. >> reporter: he starts to many people look better and better. >> we all do. that's the way time works. i think he's going to go down as the greatest one-term president ever because of his foreign policy, deftally handling the end of the cold war, reunification of germany. >> reporter: george w. bush also told us what he learned from his father about personal diplomacy. >> here's a george bush story. one of the things i learned from him was to give these world leaders kind of special treatment, if possible. and i said, dad, i need a place to bring vladimir putin. would you mind if i brought him to kennebunk port, knowing full
3:59 am
well putin would say, wow, this is really great. he said, not at all. so putin lands and there's dad at the foot of the stairs to greet him. i said, do you want to go out in our boat? putin said, oh, i'd love to go. so putin has this interpreter -- that's kind of, you know, didn't look like much of an outdoors man. the old man opens that thing up full blast. this guy i'm stand being next to, the interpreter is like white knuckle hanging onto the bolt, wondering if he's going to live. he's cutting through these waves. it's classic george bush. >> reporter: what was putin doing? >> he loved it. he's one of these macho dudes, saw spray coming across, he thought it was wonderful. it's the interpreter was nerve racking. >> stay with cbs news, our continuing coverage of the passing former president will continue later today. we will fun service live from houston beginning at 11:00 a.m. eastern. from the cbs news broadcast center in new york city, i am da gat trsda
