7:03 am
i don't know about all of those other stuff. announcer: this portion of "cbs this morning" sponsored by toyota. let's go places. welcome to "cbs this morning." we are following breaks new from iran. the pentagon confirms that navy personnel are free after held by a iran revolutionary guard. nine men and one woman detained overnight in the persian gulf at an iranian base. >> they had drifted into iran waters because of mechanical problems. david martin is at the pentagon. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. the ten sailors were picked up and flown by helicopter to a u.s. military base where they will be debriefed to get to their account of what happened. the pentagon says there are no indications they were harmed during their time in iranian hands.
7:04 am
the ones here, were en route from kuwait to bahrain when u.s. officials say they suffered a mechanical breakdown. the boats drifted into iranian waters and ten u.s. sailors were taken into custody and held overnight at an iranian base on the eyelid of farsi. speaking on state tv, the naval chief for the iranian revolutionary guard said the american vessels were engaged in unprofessional acts before being picked up and the sailors were taken into custody without much resistance. >> some of the only people in america -- >> reporter: any mention of the detainment was left out of president obama's state of the union address as u.s. officials worked to confirm the status of the crew. on tuesday, secretary of state john kerry spoke directly with his iranian counterpart and was personally assured the sailors would be well-treated. >> we have received assurances from the iranians both that our sailors are safe. we have also, most importantly, received assurances that they will be allowed to continue
7:05 am
>> reporter: the sailors were on board navy riverine command boat which do not normally carry sensitive equipment. the incident comes two weeks after iranian revolutionary guard ships fired off rockets within a mile of the american aircraft carry "harry s. truman" as it entered the gulf. the rockets were away from the shift but drew a strong protest from the u.s. the navy will now conduct an investigation but the u.s. seems behind them as quickly as possible. defense secretary carter released a statement saying, we appreciate the timely way in which this situation was resolved. >> thank you, david. president obama says after seven years in office, the state of our union is strong. but there is strong reaction this morning to his final state of the union address. the president defended his record and, again, called for a change in the political climate. margaret brennan is at the white
7:06 am
>> reporter: good morning. well, president obama told his staff back in november that he wants this last state of the union to feel a lot like his very first. a reflective to-do list for the next generation. he tried to reassure anxious americans and admitted what he thinks is one of his failures. >> it's one of the few regrets of my presidency that the rancor and suspicion between the parties have gotten worse, instead of better. >> reporter: in this election year address, it was difficult to keep 2016 politics out of the chamber. president obama was pointed in trying to tear down some of the claims of those republicans hoping to replace him. >> anyone claiming that america's economy is in decline is peddling fiction. our answer needs to be more than tough talk. more calls to carpet bomb
7:07 am
over the top claims that this is world ward iii plays into their hands. >> reporter: mr. obama says he understands why voters are frustrated with politics. >> the democracy breaks down when the average person feels their voice doesn't matter. but that is the system is rigged in favor of the powerful or some special interest. >> reporter: in the gop response, south carolina governor nikki haley di missed that rhetoric. >> unfortunately, the president's record has often fallen far short of his soaring words. >> reporter: but she admitted republicans are partially to blame for american anxiety and sought to distance her party from the controversial tone of its presidential contenders. >> during anxious times, it can be tempting to follow the siren call of the angriest voices. we must resist that temptation. >> reporter: and the president announced one final ambitious goal -- a so-called moon shot to cure cancer. that appeared to surprise the vice president who lost a son to the disease last year.
7:08 am
mission control. for the loved ones we have all loved, for the families that we can still save, let's make america the country that cures cancer once and for all. what do you say, joe? >> reporter: with a fan fare behind him, the president left the chamber for the last time, all in. >> let me look at this thing one last time. i always liked that. that is kind of cool. >> reporter: today, the president will sound a lot like candidate obama, as he flies to nebraska and louisiana to promote this message of hope and change once again. and, charlie, you can expect the white house to change their communication strategy in the months to come. they promise more town hall style events to have the president appear to be speaking with the public and not at them. >> thanks, margaret. the vice president of the united states joe biden is with
7:09 am
mr. vice president, good morning. >> happy to be here, charlie. >> speaker ryan said if everything was as great as the president said it would, two-thirds of the people would not say the country is on the wrong track. is there a disconnect? >> i think two reasons, charlie. one, the blowback from the recession still left a lot of middle class people who lost their homes to more in the stock market and didn't back in as it came back up, the job stagnation and wage stagnation. i think the president explained it fairly well with these international changes taking place with globalization and the way things are moving, and we have to adjust. this is a new period, and so there is understandable frustration, understanding concern. but there is no question, no question we are the most respected, most powerful nation in the world. there is no question that no one is as used to saying my
7:10 am
that doesn't mean there aren't real genuine concerns, particularly income and disparity and wage stagnation among the american people with good reason. >> speaking of income disparity, secretary clinton, you have suggested, is late to the income and equality issue. why did you say that and what did you mean? does it suggest you were a part of the political debate? >> no, no. the context is always getting a little -- it gets reshaped and not intentional but gets reshaped in the re-telling. i was asked a question about bernie sanders and about hillary, and what i was saying was hillary has been secretary of state for five years before, almost five years before she ran for office. and prior to that, her major focus and function was still in the area of national security. but bernie has been doing the same speech for the last 30 years.
7:11 am
bernie's -- i mean literally, he has never changed his position. and so it is -- there is a difference. i think some of the policies that hillary has come forward with are very, very pro active and i think would be very helpful to the middle class. i think she is moving in the right direction. but the comparison was she and bernie -- it wasn't that she's is not authentic, she is awe they wantic. it's this is what westerny has been talking about. if asked in the reverse why isn't bernie talking about women like hillary? this has been hillary's wheelhouse since ever she has been a public face in the united states. fighting for women. and so it doesn't mean he doesn't support women. it's just her wheelhouse. that is the context in which the discussion took place. >> mr. vice president, obama said anyone claim's america's economy is in decline and is peddle be fiction. the facts are this.
7:12 am
people living in poverty. household incomes has dramatically shifted to upper income americans from middle income americans. you have wages in this country are stagnant. the economy has gotten worse for many americans. is there a disconnect here? >> the overall economy is healthy. the dislocations and the dangerous. i remember having a discussion with you, charlie. >> yes. >> i pointed out an article from the university of massachusetts, a professor pointing out of the 4.7 trillion dollars in profits from 2003 to 2013, 47 went back to buying stocks and 9% left for everything else. that is what barack and i have been fighting about. we have been saying you have to give great opportunities.
7:13 am
no longer -- they act like they have no corporate responsibility for the community and no corporate responsibility to their employees. significant sift that is dangerous. america. but not the overall economy. the overall economy relatively to the rest of the world is by far the wealthiest economy. >> what wasn't mentioned last night was iran's detention of the ten u.s. sailors. we hear it is good news this morning. what happened with that? >> one of the boats had engine failure and drifted into iranian waters. the iranian picked up both boats as we have picked up iranian boats that needed to be rescued and took them to -- i'm not sure exactly where. i don't want to misspeak here. and realize they were there and distressed and said they were released them and they released them like ordinary nations would do. that is the way nations should
7:14 am
important should have channels open. >> should we apologize to the iranians? >> no. when you have a problem with a boat? do you apologize the boat had problems? there is no looking for an apology. this was standard and nautical practice. >> mr. vice president, thanks for being with us. >> good to talk to you. thanks for having me. >> south carolina's governor nikki haley delivered the republican response to the president ate speech last night. good morning. >> good morning. another great day in south carolina. >> reporter: thank you for joining us here. you said last night that your party has to resist a temptation to follow the siren call of the angriest voices. why did you want to land that criticism at donald trump? >> you know, the angry iest voices referred to a lot of things. certainly some of the things that mr. trump has said, but it's been to other things as you know, if you saw what
7:15 am
areas that had to deal with issues of law enforcement. there are a lot of bad or a few bad angry actors every so often, and we had an officer who shot water scott. and, you know, rather than having a lot of angry voices out there, what we did was we came together, republicans and democrats, white and black, and we passed the first body camera bill in the country. mr. trump is not exempt from being one of those angriest voices. all i'm saying is we got a responsibility. and the way we handle issues and the way we talk about issues should be towards pollution, not towards division. i say that in reference to a lot of things. >> governor, a lot of people looked at your address last night and thought, not only is a rebuttal to president obama's state of the union, but also a call to your own party and a call to distance your party from donald trump. is that, in part, true? >> no. that wasn't true. you know what it was? it was calling out my party. i mean, that was very true. i called out republicans and i called out democrats, because i think it's important. if the country is going to move
7:16 am
the mirror and we all need to realize we all have had something to do with this. once you do that you can regroup and build the country back up again. >> as you know, there is also things called pundits and radio posts and laura ingram said it may not be smart, she tweeted, to be criticizing gop candidates would dominating the polls and ann coulter said trump should deport you. >> i have respect for both of those women. what i'll tell you is i was given the opportunity by speaker ryan ryan and senator mcconnell to say what i think. i was very critical of the administration and i was very critical of the things that obama hasn't done, whether it's health care, whether it's the economy, whether it's education, whether it's dividing the country. but i was also critical about our own republicans and that is because we can't assume that we have no blame here.
7:17 am
you for speaking candidly and criticizing your own party. was that difficult for you to do? it's rare for people to do that? >> no, it wasn't. you know, in south carolina, i've had to do that with my own party here in south carolina. it's healthy. you know, it's healthy when you can point out certain things thaw feel like weren't in the best interest of your state or your country, but it's not personal. >> would you like to see woman on the republican ticket? >> i don't think those things matter. i'd like to see a good ticket. i want a good, strong ticket that makes the republican party proud, that is one that talks about the solutions to health care, the solutions to education, what we can do with tax reform and how we are going to fix national security. if that is a woman or a minority or a man, i'll take it. we want good leadership. >> well said. >> governor haley, thank you for joining us. >> thank you. good morning. "face the nation" moderator and cbs news political director john dickerson joins us now from washington. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. >> a lot of people were saying,
7:18 am
against donald trump. he took jabs from the president and many believe from nikki haley. what do you say about that? >> she has brought the country together in bipartisan agreement. the president was clearly aiming at him specifically on the question of his ban on new muslims coming into the country and nick kki haley was also clearly talking about him. so for somebody who likes attention, though, that is probably -- doesn't totally upset. >> what do you think it means that conservatives, particularly those on radio, laura ingram and coulter, others are denouncing nikki haley saying she went too far. >> a huge debate in the republican party about whether the people who are associated with the, quote/unquote, establishment are listening to and understand the grassroots. the establishment has been pretty quiet. this was a push back against that. and we are going to see this continue to play out. what was notable here is not so much the friction, but just that the nikki haley was bold enough
7:19 am
big and public forum. i mean, this wasn't a response to the president. this was a response to the republican front-runner. >> turning to politics of another kind. the democratic race for president. explain the sanders surge to us. >> enthusiasm among people who feel like while they liked president obama, they still feel like the system is rigged. that was amazing. president obama in his speech used that expression twice to basically say the economic system is rigged. they think bernie sanders, who has been loud and proud about what he has been saying for his entire career, is a more authentic vessel for that view. >> thank you, john dickerson. >> thanks. winter weather blasts huge areas of the country today.

7:56 am
>> the economy has gotten worse for many americans. is there a disconnect here? >> the overall economy is >> it can be tempting to follow the siren call of the angriest voices. a lot of things. certainly some of the things that mr. trump has said. >> the justice department is launching an investigation to man-made public health crisis happened. temperatures are below blowing. i'm standing here dangerously close to the waves of lake erie. >> this will take less than a minute for the powerball drawing. it is the largest powerball drawing ever. >> good morning, gayle. great to be with all of us. >> you ended the curse! >> yes. >> the response curse. >> you know, my number one goal was to not become a "saturday night live" skit. i'm charlie rose with gayle king and norah o'donnell.

unwelcome in this country. we must fix our broken immigration system. that means stopping illegal immigration and it means welcoming properly vetted legal immigrants, regardless of their race or religion. just like we have for centuries. >> haley told us this morning she was calling out leaders of both parties because they all share responsibility to move the country forward. hillary clinton tweeted her support for the president's speech this morning, saying, seven years of progress, we need to build on it, not go backwards. thank you, president obama. with us from washington, democratic presidential candidate and former secretary of state hillary clinton. madam secretary, good morning. >> good morning to all of you. >> the president made the case for his administration last night in the state of the union. yet 65% of americans think we are on the wrong track. is there disconnect between the president and the people? >> you know, charlie, i thought the president made a compelling
8:00 am
made, but the work that still lies ahead. and what i've been saying on the campaign is that we had a brutal body blow with the great recession. we are standing. we are not yet running. we have work to do. and i think this election is so consequential because there are two very different points of view between us and the republicans and that is what people are going to have to choose between. >> are they different points between you and the president about where the country is and where it's going? >> i think that the president's views are ones that are rooted in a lot of reality. we have been adding new jobs. we are the strongest economy, once again, as we have historically been. we remain the leader in the world on so many important issues. but -- there is a big but -- and i think the president had a long laundry list of unfinished business that we need to be focused on. >> madam secretary, the latest
8:01 am
supporters a little worried tonight. they show that bernie sanders is surge ing just seven points behind you now. how concerned are you about that? >> i always expected that this would ab tight race. that is the experience that i've had certainly in politics. and i'm very happy about where my campaign is, what we are talking about, the reaction we are getting. it's going to be a campaign that goes right to the wire. i'm doing all that i can to reach out to as many people to convince them to caucus for me in iowa and then to vote for me in the new hampshire primary and then to go on from there to south carolina and nevada. >> you're happy about your campaign. it seems so is bernie sanders. here is what he had to say about how you're doing. >> when you see that many attacks, and i am slur that more will -- see that many attacks and i'm sure more are coming it's that they are getting nervous. they ignored us for months and
8:02 am
now. for sure. >> is this your nervous face, hillary clinton? >> no. . i have a different sense of the rhythm of the campaign. i spent my campaign, you know, talking about the issues that people talk to me about, answering questions about what i would do as president. you know, now we are in the sprint to the finish line. >> when you see the two new polls out this morning in iowa and new hampshire that suggests that bernie sanders is now ahead of you in those two key early states, madam secretary, what do numbers? >> i say what i say whenever i see any poll. it doesn't matter whether they have me ahead or not. i just couldn't don't pay that much attention to them. >> one of the four questions the president suggested for the country had to do with those who have and those who have not. vice president biden said or suggested that you're a newcomer to the issue of income and equality. >> well, you know, i have the greatest respect for him, but i
8:03 am
record, starting when ill went to work as a young lawyer for the children's defense fund, working as a legal services lawyer, all the way up to my public service, knows that i have been fighting to even the odds for people all my life. >> but more people are in poverty today than they were when the president assumed office. >> well, charlie, that was because of the great recession. i mean, look at what president bush inherited from my husband. 23 million new jobs and incomes going up for everyone. more people lifted out of poverty than at any time in our nation's history since history. and they dismantled it. they had two tax cuts and wouldn't pay for the two wars the president waged and took their eyes off the mortgage and financial market. yes, we fell into a great recession, the worst financial crisis since the great depression. and it's been a challenge to dig us out of a ditch that the
8:04 am
digging, and i'm very grateful that the auto industry was saved, that we have now recovered more than 13 million new jobs. but have we solved all of the problems that were caused by going back to trickle down economic policies? no, we still have work to do. but i'm confident we are on the right track and our economy is sure stronger than anybody else in the world right now. >> that is why political campaigns should be about the future. >> that's right. >> secretary clinton, thank you. >> great to talk to the three of you. bill o'reilly returns to stued studio 57 again today. we will find out what he thinks about the race for 2016. first, first, it's time to

year that i've come here to report on the state of the union. and for this final one, i'm going to try to make it a little shorter. i know some of you are antsy to get back to iowa. >> you heard president obama starting off his final state of the union with a joke. he said it was going to be shorter, but it wasn't. this turned out to be one of his longer speeches. he then laid out goals for the country in his last year of office and beyond and his approval rating stands at 46%. that is four points below ronald reagan at the beginning of his last year in office even in the weak of the iran contrascandal. we are getting a in look at his presidency and all in bill o'reilly's book "killing reagan." welcome to studio 57. >> what is up, guys? >> nice to have you here.
8:10 am
your success in a moment. i want to talk about the news of the day and the president's remarks last night. one of the things i wanted to do was get involved in the political debate. i think so this was less, you know, a state of the union than it was an argument in some ways. he said america's economic decline is a bunch of political hot air. >> yeah, well. 66% of the american public according to your own cbs poll disagrees with him and thinks the country on son a wrong track. look. this was a political speech in an age where we need problem soverlg solving and not more -- both sides. both sides. why don't you guys knock off the b.s., all right? i'll give you an example. america is the most powerful nation in the world. yea! what good is the power if we don't use it wisely? chaos in the middle east and iran taking advantage of us and china melting down. [ inaudible ]. >> no. deal. nato should be fighting isis. and nato should be protecting
8:11 am
starving in syria. why isn't nato doing that? no one can answer that. i'm tired of b.s. i want a problem solver in the oval office next time around. >> you're criticizing both parties which is what nikki haley did lat st night. >> she has a good job of being a v.p., by the way. >> now she is getting criticized for criticizing her party. criticized, all right? that was the strongest point president obama made last night. not getting along. knock the ideology off. we have serious problems here. >> bill, specifically, governor haily said during anxious times it can be tempting to follow the siren call of the angriest voices and we must resist that temptation. she is talking about donald trump. >> so what? trump is smart and he might get elected because he is angry and so is the american people and is reflecting that anger. anger can be good if it leads to possible solve.
8:12 am
politician he would be at 6%. trump accurately engages the mood of the country and may very well win the nomination. all right? he is doing that to win. is he that bombastic when he wins? i'm not sure. if he is, he can't win the general. >> do you believe he believes what he says? >> yes. in a general sense. but i believe he makes rhetorical mistakes. >> what do you mean? what is a rhetorical mistake? >> you say we are going to ban all muslims, okay? that is not going to help us fight isis. but he didn't think it out. mexico, he was clearly talking about the corrupt mexican government when he talks about mexicans being drug dealers and this and that but he didn't articulate it well enough. >> does he do that on purpose? >> no. he is not a politician. when you're a billionaire, you can say what you want, right? you have billions of dollars. >> you cannot. >> you don't have to think it out. >> yes, you do. >> no you don't.

"killing reagan"! >> the ups and downs hollywood career. you go from bedtime to bonzo to president of the united states. >> yeah. >> what was fascinating to you about him? reagan was no joke. >> a shallow actor who then becomes one of the greatest presidents of all time.
8:14 am
how did it happen? >> wouldn't you say nancy reagan played a key role? >> big. nancy changed from a real heartbeat to a real -- >> heartbeat? >> yeah. who even betty ford didn't like. into this hero at the end of the president's life. and so both tracks have this tremendous evolution and that is material. >> we should say that some of the people that work with reagan, george schultz, ed nece in particular say it doesn't referable the man they worked with. >> you make the case, interesting thing about the book, that reagan's assassination attempt affected miss mindset. >> what they object to. >> jack nicholson said, "you can't handle the truth."
8:15 am
ronald reagan fought through this assassination attempt and i think made him a great man. he had to rise because he was so badly hurt. >> thank you, bill. >> all right, guys. >> you can call me charlie, though, bill. >> rose, don't get offended! glator glamour, i call them by their first name. you, you're rose. >> all right, o'reilly. we will be right back. i don't want to live with the uncertainties of hep c. or wonder... ...whether i should seek treatment. i am ready. because today there's harvoni. a revolutionary treatment for the most common type of chronic hepatitis c. harvoni is proven to cure up to 99% of patients... ...who've had no prior treatment. it's the one and only cure that's... ...one pill, once a day for 12 weeks. certain patients... ...can be cured with just 8 weeks of harvoni. with harvoni, there's no interferon and there are no complex regimens. tell your doctor if you have

8:24 am
>> yelp, yellow pages. >> 90 million people have access to yelp to their phones and it directly affects people's businesses. was that your intention starting back in the day? >> absolutely. when you back to 2004 when yelp was created we had just the yellow pages and a big book of advertisements. with yelp you can tap into the community around you. you have this entire city here in new york and everybody recommendations. >> and their negative recommendations too. >> how can you trust the consumer reviews? >> how could you not trust it if there wasn't any negativity? if everybody was five stars, how would you distinguish, like, what are the really great yelp. reflects the real world which is of good. >> the challenge comes, though, because something want to gain the system. >> that comes with power. so as yelp becomes more useful and millions of people are relying on it, then, sure,
8:25 am
out how do i get better reviews? how do i rank higher? just like websites like to rank higher than google too. >> when i use yelp how does it determine which reviews are the ones you see? >> it's looking at the ratings. the quantity of ratings and what the star rating is between 1 and 5. and then we are also looking at what did you type in? if you search for something specific, like i wanted something, we are trying to match up to places that are highly rated. >> there are also examples of defamation lawsuits and people wrote negative reviews and somebody was fined $750,000. another woman was ordered to pay $1,000 after she made a negative review. how is the consumer protected? if i have a bad experience, why can't i is a i it was say it's not good? >> certain businesses have tried
8:26 am
they slip it in there some of the paper work you're signing maybe when you check in at a hotel. it says if you write anything negative about us, we are going to charge you an extra $500. that doesn't make sense and it wouldn't hold up in court. a bill working its way through congress to protect against that. >> i want to ask you about the industry at large, because you have been very critical of google. in fact, you said google has completely lost its mind. >> it has. >> how? >> it's really compromised the consumer. if you pull up on your mobile phone right now and do a search for, say, sushi new york right here, you're actually not even getting the web any more. you're getting google. and google doesn't necessarily have the best results and don't have the best content that open table and others have. it used to be a turnstile you searched google and it sent you to the best place on the web and
8:27 am
>> who do you mean fooling google? eye >> google has its own yelp. >> but google has denied search bias? >> they haven't necessarily denied it. they said this is what we are going to do. the ftc took a look at it a while ago and was conflicted internally. a lot of mystery what happened with that process. >> why don't they have a bigger challenger? >> they do have a challenger in local which is us. >> i know but you know what i'm saying. the majority of searches is on google. >> a network effect to it. as you get more data you become more intelligent and you become smarter and allows you to serve up better results. because they are making so much money therapy the default everywhere. when with you type in a web search on your iphone, guess where you go? straight to google. that is because google is paying millions and millions of dollars to apple to have that position. >> you're supporting legislation that protects consumers. what is missing online to
8:28 am
>> i mean, one of the main areas that we are focused is fairly technical area of the law called anti-slap legislation, so when a person writes a review that is maybe a controversial or negative, sometimes business owners want to sue them. a lot of states actually have very strong protections that allow the courts to take a quick look and then throw out that lawsuit. but they vary by state and we would love to see that put in place at the federal level so that everyone is covered in the same way. >> jeremy stoppelman, great to have you at the table. >> thanks for having me. >> thank you. paul giamatti is in our toyota green room with a sneak peek at his new drama "billions."
