drip, drip, drip, fight for control of information. and ultimately, it looks like they're hiding something which is never good. >> mark, how much are voters supposed to know about a candidate's health issue? if she thinks she can power through, what's wrong with her thinking i'll get through this? are we supposed to know everything about the candidate? >> well look, there's not a rule book. but this is a tension that the clinton especially have been in life for many, many years, hillary clinton used the phrase zone of privacy that everyone is entitled to in private life. this goes back 20 years. it's been conscious and tenuous. >> the white house president secretary said yesterday, quote, there's a reason we have had a long tradition in this country of individual candidates disclosing information about her health. we are electing someone to the most powerful job in the world, and there shouldn't be a double
7:15 am
standards. not only hillary clinton but donald trump should both be open and transparent about their health. >> well, david axelrod said it's a matter of stealth not health. >> there is a standard? >> robert gibbs said there comes a time when a protected media pool needs to be a part of daily life. there is a standard. and it's letting the media be with you essentially 24/7 at this point. >> right. but this is an election that unwritten rule after unwritten rule has been broken. in many, many cases by donald trump. in some ways, this is emblematic of him being in the head of the clinton role. you see her having a coughing fit in cleveland last week. lf all of a sudden, your mind jumps. okay, this is going to be a big

mark eckert is in studio 57 in an interview you'll see only on "cbs this morning." mark, we welcome to you the table. >> thank you. >> this is a very big decision. take us through the process to reach it. >> this was a decision reached when the state of north carolina passed hb2. we have a board of governors made up of 16 presidents during that time frame. there was hope this could be resolved during the summer, during the legislative session, perhaps this fall, through the court system. none of those things came to pass. in order to try to relocate and move them to places where our students could get a high-quality experience, we had to make a decision right away. >> but the nuts and bolts on why you actually decided to pull the plug on it? >> oh, sure. this is an issue, you know, college sports is conducted inside of university and college
8:16 am
context. these are student fairness and inclusion are right at the heart of what the ncaa does and what universities do. and so, for our university presidents, this was a proverbial no-brainer. >> did you speak to north carolina's governor about this? >> i'd spoken to him in the spring about it. he'd expressed a lot of views about it throughout the process. but i hadn't spoken to him -- >> they didn't lobby to keep the championships in north carolina? >> we had a process by which all the individual bidders were able to express their views what they could do around this. in the end, the board realized with this law in place they couldn't be there. >> a spokesman called it almost comical. saying i wish the ncaa was this concerned about the women who were raped at baylor. this goes to administrators and coaches at the school. the ncaa has no policy on how the school should handle sexual assault cases. do you think that response has merit?
8:17 am
>> no, i don't. first of all, the statement is false. the board of governors, a couple of years ago, in fact, put in place a policy around how universities should be -- and colleges should be handling sexual assault. the two issues are completely unrelated. there's no question that this is a decision, the hb2 decision is one that's going to engender opinions on both sides of the aisle. it's a political season, that's unfortunate, people are going to say comments like that. >> to be clear, the ncaa does have a definitive policy in place with how schools are supposed to handle sexual assault charges? >> yeah, it does. two years ago in august, the board of governors passed a resolution -- >> a resolution, but not a policy? >> but what they're doing right now, that same board is in the midst of formulating whether or not that policy should become an enforceable rule. a rule that would allow the national association to go in and punish schools specifically.
8:18 am
>> do you think they show that? >> i think they do. >> and the nba made a similar decision, they pulled the all-star game. did you seek counsel? i'm trying to understand the process, when you say this is right, is this wrong, this is what bothers me about this particular hb2 law? >> yeah, of course, i'm talked to adam a number of times on this and a number of other issues. the reason why the university president reached this conclusion last evening is, again, is this about sports that are conducted in the context of universities. and it's trying to reflect the values of higher education in america. inclusion. fairness. treating all of your student athletes, the coaches, their fans, in a way that reflects those values of our championships. that's what matters the most. the championships are a celebration of everything about higher education. >> were students weighing in, too? >> students were weighing in this, because we have students involved in all of the

8:20 am
that individuals want to pay her? >> what individuals have to do, whether olympians or player, they have to make a decision whether they want to retain their status. whether they want to be professional. others say, no, i want to compete as an amateur. same thing happens at golf. at augusta national competing as an amateur and others professionals. those are individual decisions that people have to make. >> mark emmert. thank you for being here. we appreciate it. >> my pleasure. some of the country's most prestigious universities are considered to be a great value. ahead, the much anticipated u.s. news and world report on college rankings. you're watching "cbs this morning." ♪ to escape their unrelenting nasal allergy symptoms...

it versus the queen of hallmark. >> it's amake. her problem is she's too tightly controlled. his problem is he's out of control. his problem is he's too bold. and her problem is she's sometimes not bold enough. >> you call it the battle of the sexes. billie jean king and bobby riggs. >> well, gayle, it's interesting for centuries women were considered temperamentally and unbiologically unsuited for office. you get a candidate who is bitchy and sometimes hysterical and worries about hair care, but it's not the woman. >> yeah. >> and yeah, then you have one who is very controlled, a hawk. and wears tailored suits. and it's not the man. so -- >> you take both candidates to tank, maureen in your column.

you say they both have a fluid relationship with the truth. that gaffes don't seem to matter, neither does is the truth. what does matter to voters. and what do you think it will take to sway undecided voters where the clock is ticking? >> i think voters are more fearful and depressed and anxious than they've ever been. they're trying to decide who to vote against. not to who to vote for. they have two candidates with historically high unpopularity ratings. it's a very sad saand anxious election that way. the republican party is being held hostage to his 70-year-old highchair king. and the democratic party is being held hostage to the whims of the bizarre clinton election for self-destructive and arrogant behavior just as things are going well. >> and what do you think about

that? >> i agree with david axelrod that it's more an stealth than health. one of the things that politics male and female get less sensitive about is health issues. my brother was a page for jfk after he had his back operation. >> a senate page. >> yeah. he opened the door for him when he was on crutches. and jfk tried to get my brother fired because he was so humiliated to be on crutches. so the alt-right is trying to make it a gender issue with hillary that she's a woman who is weak. but it isn't about that. that is not the problem. the problem with the health issue for her, it's a microcosm since a very destructive policy since 1992 where she's just so secretive. she has her own wall. trump has his wall. and she has her wall.

of, you know, don't tell the press anything. they're just out to get us. and then it takes a relatively mundane thing and it snowballs where her foes and -- >> with regards to transparency, now they're lobbing back and forth. i'm reminded from a great line from "princess bride" i keep using that word that you think it means where so much is baked in the cake. there are candidates for our time as well. celebrity-driven electorate. this transparency in a way does it matter for for an electorate that doesn't care. >> it's interesting because we're a selfie nation. and for some reason, running for president is the new selfie. that's why it's unhealthy for then trying to occlude and not release heir records.

>> the book is called the year of voting dangerously." i'm worried about the next year of governing dangerously. you wright the awesome responsibility of the job of presidency intensifies insecurities on pathology. and campaigns matter. >> you're exactly right, norah. i asked trump this in an interview, when we were talking one day. and i said you are -- he got mad at me, but i said you are a clinical narcissist. and when you get in the white house, the problem is when some historical event hits you like 9/11, all of your insecurities and gremlins come out. all of these things are a perfect storm. >> maureen, you do have a lot of material. you'll never run out of something like that. >> it's going to be
