didn't have food? so are you saying they're lying to us? >> yeah, of course they are. >> reporter: they're lying to us? >> they are. because there's no one go hungry in this country. >> reporter: it is rare for illegal hunting to be prosecuted. this time the international outcry over cecil the lion resulted in not only a trial but partial ban of big game hunting on some of the farms bordering the national park. >> thank you, deborah. after a deadly outbreak of listeria, we have turned up more red flags about our food supply. and this church had londoners praying for peace and quiet.

deaths annually from a wide range of pathogens. >> reporter: taylor says that will change with the implay men taegs of the food safety modernization act, the first overall of u.s. food safety laws in more than 70 years. the kind of practices we saw in the facility are what the new food safety law is intended to prevent. >> reporter: you are going from reactivity to prevention. >> exactly. that's the shift. >> reporter: the shift started this fall when the fda began implementing rules. with 1,000 inspectors for 100,000 facilities. taylor says they can't do it alone. >> the companies have to take responsibility for understanding the hazard in their facilities. >> reporter: you will never have the resources to be in every production facility every day. >> we have got to have a system that creates real accountability on the companies for doing the right thing for prevention every day.

accounted for 50% of visits. 5 to 34. most typical patients young adults. most common symptoms were cardiac. chest pain. elevated heart rate. dr. andrew geller of the cdc its the report's lead author. >> some dietary supplements may have benefits. but there are risks. we encourage patients to tell their physicians that they're taking dietary supplements and which ones. >> reporter: scott, patients don't tell doctors they're taking supplements they don't kid them real medications. supplements can have interact actions with med. one idea is to bring your medicines to the doctor's office. throw them on the table. one by one go over what you are taking. >> dr. jon lapook, thanks, doc. in london they asked not for whom the bell tolled, they asked if anyone could stop it. a technical glitch caused the bell at saint george to ring nonstop for 24 hours. the residents went nuts. one chimed in, have you tried turning it off and then on again. we don't know who finally fixed it.

with bob woodward of all people? >> no, not at all. >> reporter: what did you think when you walked into his apartment and you see the 20 boxes? >> i thought -- wow. let's start looking. >> reporter: the result is the last of the president's men, published by simon and schuster, a division of cbs. in addition to the documents, woodward spent 40 hours interviewing butterfield who for three years occupied the office next to the president's. >> first one to see hem every day. last one to see him every night. attending to all the need. >> reporter: when butterfield left he took his files with him. >> some of the documents are classified top secret. how did you just walk away with them from the white house? >> it was easy. i just walked away with them. i did the wrong thing. no one is supposed to do that. but i felt to tell you the truth, that, those papers were
safer with me than with anyone. i had been around classified. that's no excuse. i am saying i wasn't going to show these to the wrong person. i was going to take good care of them. >> reporter: one top secret document reveals nixon's candid handwritten opinion of the bombing of vietnam. an angry scrawl across a report from henry kissinger. we have had ten years of total control of the air and laos and vietnam. the result zilch. and just the day before nextson told dan rather of cbs news, exactly the opposite. >> the results have been very, very effective. >> surely, nixon was not the first and won't be the last president to privately say things he would never say public. >> yeah, the level of contradiction and the depth of the fraud. >> reporter: according to woodward's research nixon ordered the military to drop nearly 3 million tons tough bombs and would order another
million dropped in the year after the zilch memo. >> it send you to, send you into your heart and soul about, you know what are we doing? how did this happen? how could we have been led this way? it takes the concept of military leadership by a president turns it on its head. >> reporter: another document, this one in butterfield's handwriting details nixon's reaction to the massacre in which 504 vietnamese sill -- civilianed were slaughtered. >> get background of all involved. almost be disclosed. does credit witnesses. >> diskrez it rings a bell. we went to great lengths. >> reporter: butterfield wrote a memo about left wing affiliations of the soldier who first blue the whistle.

their desks. or on the wall. nixon said we have to get rid of that infestation, as if it was some sort of disease that somebody would have a picture of j.f.k. in their office. >> what were you supposed to do about these pictures of other presidents on the walls? >> get them all take ebb down. >> get them all taken down? >> yes. he made that an express order. roy in particular, white house chief of staff told butterfield the president would like you to find out who the woman is who has the two kennedy pictures. adding he asked about it once a week at least. butterfield reported back the cia secret service and fbi and house committee on unamerican activities all found the woman, a civil servant named edna rosenberg was a completely royal american. >> what's surprised is you go
through all of this, the amount of energy that was devoted to these kind of maneuvers. this was a subversion of what the job of the presidency is. >> all of it documented in butterfield's files. >> that's to holdeman. this is to the treasury secretary. this is to the social secretary for the white house. >> they really are sort of a record of what the president is thinking about on -- on any given day. >> yeah. >> some of them at least 40 years after, seem very, very strange. >> yes, they do. >> did they? did they seem strange at the time? >> in this strange environment, no. >> nothing of course was stranger than the break in at democratic national committee headquarters in the watergate. that third rate burglary which brought down the president. butterfield was not in on it but knew about the taping system that could answer the question,
what did the president know? when did he know it? >> listen, the last thing i wanted to do was be the person who gave away the secret. holdeman and i told the president we would never tell. >> reporter: then a retired fbi agent, donald sanders, a member of the watergate committee staff, wound up an otherwise routine interview by asking exactly the right question. >> do you remember the question? >> exactly. >> how did it go? >> was there ever any other listening device in the oval office? that was the, and i said, i think i said, my, i'm ser you asked that question. i'm sorry you asked that question. >> history flips right there. >> i knew what i was saying, getting into. i really knew what it meant. >> when you look back at at now. would you have done anything differently in the way you handled that explosive secret of the taping system?
>> no, i thought of that a lot. >> i bet. >> i regret nothing. i didn't do everything right. but i satisfied myself that -- that i didn't tell a lie. >> reporter: it was of course the tapes that revealed the president had obstructed justice by ordering the cover-up of the watergate break in. nixon resigned. butterfield faded into retirement in california. >> the meeting presidents have before they go up to the capital to -- be sworn in as the new president. >> reporter: now he is back to teach us all one of the basic lessons of journalism. there is always more to the story. >> there is the president waving good-bye. as you hear the applause. we've been changing things up witoh yeah.ve. it's a pleasure gel that magnifies both our sensations.

bullet pardon the pun to solve gun violence not in st. louis not anywhere. >> reporter: her office launched this website to tell the stories of the victims and also the offenders. >> i think the mass shootings as concerning and troubling as they are they get a lot of the focus when we talk about gun violence opposed to the day-to-day shootings in our cities that are really piling up a lot more in terms of body count than the mass shootings are. >> do you think there will be other parents like you? >> i hate to say this, but yeah. yep. there is going to be somebody else. >> reporter: the other two children who were killed here in cleveland in the last month were ages 3 and 5. scott, in the last four years, more than 500 children under the age of 12 were killed by guns in this country. the "cbs overnight news" will be right back.
