7:16 am

7:17 am
draftkings. cbs news legal expert rikki klieman is here. >> good morning. >> reporter: >> you say this is a smart move by the attorney general? >> really smart. he got there first because you're hearing noise from representatives and senators all the way up to harry reid that they want to investigate, from the ftc. eric sniderman got there first. why is this smart? well, what happens in fantasy football is this. originally it was a year-long game, a season long game. so that didn't seem so harmful. it was exempt from the 2006 unlawful internet gambling act because it was looked at still not simply champ. but now what has happened in fantasy football is you can make a lot of money because it's daily and it's weekly. so if you're an employee on one of these sites, and you bet on the other site and you just happen to have a good weekend where you make $315,000, that smacks of impropriety.
7:18 am
not power. we don't like insider trading. the same thing when we don't like it on wall street. we don't like the idea that an employee of one of these sites might have inside information that they can use to their advantage on another site. >> what if there are no regulation? >> there wasn't regulation in this industry simply because it was exempt. so the industry says, okay, we will regulate ourselves. we know what happens when that occurs. so what everyone else is saying now is, like, no, no, no, no. you can't police yourself. we are going to go out and police you. it is not going to be any more that someone who appears to have knowledge can be able to bet on the other site. i mean, what were they thinking? none of these people should have been able to bet. >> what is going to happen now? >> i think the danger is ultimately big-time regulation and if it goes further, the danger could really be
7:19 am
indictment. >> rikki klieman, thank you very much. ahead, how sin city is trying to reinvent itself to attract a new generation of gamblers. >> i'm ben tracy in las vegas, where some people are betting the future of gambling looks a whole lot more like a video game. we will show you the technology they hope to lure young people into the casinos coming up on "cbs this morning. announcer: this portion of "cbs this morning" sponsored by voya. changing the way you think of

winners. you talked to floyd mayweather and the squeen and others. what did you see in the similarities of these individuals? >> they are all individuals but you boil it down cher strategic and they work really hard and they are resilient. i think resilient is underestimated as a real quality and they have an absolute fascination with what they do. >> you said they care more about winning than wealth, many of them. >> i don't know about floyd mayweather. i think he loves his wealth but mr. branson you mentioned. saying he never went into businesses thinking about money. he goes into it seeing an opportunity to kind of do something good. i think the other thing that draws a lot of them together is they care more about not losing than they do about winning. they are driven by fear, as much as by a desire to succeed. >> what do you mean when you say strategic? >> i mean, the ability to work out, where you get to and then -- what i call the big how. the big plan to get there.
8:37 am
and i think the real winners, they understand the difference between tactics and most of them don't. >> would you have said the same about lance armstrong? >> he is one of two people in the book but i decided not to put him on the cover with all of the names. the other is vladimir putin, who i know you know very well, charlie. the reason that this -- lance armstrong said the most extraordinary thing when i first interviewed him before he was finally exposed. what he said to me, losing and dying, it's the same thing. >> wow. >> i thought, wow that guy is a winner. i should have thought, if i had my old journalistic hat back on, he would do lk anything. i still want to see him in a positive like but i think, in a way, he lied too much, he is -- very, very hard for lance to rebuild his reputation. >> you talk a lot about vladimir
8:38 am
putin you said is a strategic leader but a bad man in many, many ways. >> he is complicated. >> look what he is doing in the middle east. >> or ukraine. putin's objective and strategy are totally aligned. they are all about the reasse reassertion of russian power. we can say he is a bad man and clearly doing bad things which he is clearly doing. you asked all of the questions in your interview, charlie, but all of the difficult stuff, he just laughed it off. the gangsterism, the krucorrupt and lying. he laughed it off because he has such control. if you see power as being about trying to do the things that you want to do, you cannot dismiss him just as being about man. you have to work out what he is trying to do. >> it's great to have you here. >> yeah. thank you. >> i was wondering what you were doing with your life. you're writing books. >> i'm writing books and doing
8:39 am
other things. advising lots of different people and different organizations that, at the moment, part of the reason you mentioned the labour party leader. i wrote the book, in part, i was worried we had lost the winning ways, lost the winning mindset. >> no doubt this will be a huge success. >> i hope so! >> and you're a winner too. >> winners and how they succeed goes on sale here in the u.s. today. country's hottest new voices, maddie and tae

whenclots in my lung,with blood it was serious. fortunately, my doctor had a game plan. treatment with xarelto®. hey guys! hey, finally, somebody i can look up to... ...besides arnie. xarelto® is proven to treat and help reduce the risk of dvt and pe blood clots. xarelto® is also proven to reduce the risk of stroke in people with afib, not caused by a heart valve problem.
8:42 am
for people with afib currently well managed on warfarin, there's limited information on how xarelto® and warfarin compare in reducing the risk of stroke. you know, i tried warfarin, but the blood testing and dietary restrictions... don't get me started on that. i didn't have to. we started on xarelto®. nice pass. safety first. like all blood thinners, don't stop taking xarelto® without talking to your doctor, as this may increase your risk of a blood clot or stroke. while taking, you may bruise more easily and it may take longer for bleeding to stop. xarelto® may increase your risk of bleeding if you take certain medicines. xarelto® can cause serious, and in rare cases, fatal bleeding. get help right away for unexpected bleeding, unusual bruising, or tingling. if you have had spinal anesthesia while on xarelto®, watch for back pain or any nerve or muscle related signs or symptoms. do not take xarelto® if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. tell your doctor before all planned medical or dental procedures. before starting xarelto®, tell your doctor about any kidney, liver, or bleeding problems. you know xarelto® is the #1 prescribed blood thinner in its class. that's a big win. it is for me. with xarelto®
8:43 am
there is no regular blood monitoring and no known dietary restrictions. treatment with xarelto®... ...was the right move for us. ask your doctor about xarelto®. ♪ ♪ how in the world did it go so wrong ♪ ♪ i was cooking good for you and your friends on the weekend ♪ >> maddie and tae went to the top of the country charts.

necklace. >> yeah. so i don't know. she just was the one that made everyone, you know, feel so small about themselves. definitely, i think, the biggest message with that song is no never allow someone to define yourself for you because i did do that and i did fall for that trap. and in order to heal from that situation and to kind of cope with that situation, we had to write a song about it. >> i wonder what she is thinking now? >> she probably still doesn't like me very much. we were the only ones that stood up to her. >> you're right. >> how long have you guys been working together? >> five years. we met when we were 15. this december will be five years. >> our five-year anniversary! >> you have the same ambition to write songs? >> i think that is why we instantly connected at the age of 15 your peers are thinking what are you wearing for homecoming? and we were like what are we wearing for our red carpet one day? >> your vocal coach put you together. you live where and you where?
