9:28 am
of people from aleppo poe. different location everybody is from elsewhere. what we learned back in syria they see their friends leaving and neighbors leaving they think, we should leave, too. you got whole neighborhoods, whole communities emptying out at once. >> we found so many people who left behind successful, prosperous lives because they felt they had no other choice. a cardiologist with his three children, whose wife is a dentist. the legal advisor on the train, agricultural engineer. a laboratory technician. >> just staggering, heartbreaking number of children. toddlers, babies. they have seen that some of those before them had pulled it off found place to make a fresh start. still, there may be strength in numbers it's the scale of these numbers that has caused the doors to start closing.
9:29 am
thousands for days at the budapest train station. made it on to trains thinking they were headed to the border only to be herded into holding camps. we saw hungarian spray tear gas into crowds. a crowd of migrants. women and children among them. now, the hungarian government is 110 mile razor wire fence which will not only keep the migrants out of the country but out of the rest of europe as well. its right wing government will have lot to answer for u.n. has criticized hungary for callous treatment of the migrants and clear violations of international law. and there's irony here. hundreds of thousands of hungarian used this same route to flee soviet occupation after
9:30 am
but now, the migrants' trail must take them through serbia, through fields still littered with land mines from the balkans war of the 1990s. there have been some heart warming moments, we found 16-year-old jawan kamal from aleppo on a train through austria two weeks after we first talked to them in greece. his escape still a hopeful fantasy. >> want to save my future. >> he's now made it all the way to germany. the country most of these refugees hope to settle in, where he's free to start a new life. but tens of thousands are still stranded in between, a humanitarian crisis made worse by a plight political crisis. the newly homeless. the people nobody wants, driven
9:31 am
longer live. >> osgood: coming up. >> actually she said that i'm an actress, let me introduce to you
9:32 am
>> osgood: >> osgood: the women accusing bill cosby of sexual assault face a long and difficult legal road. he's been criminally charged with nothing, has admitted nothing, many of the alleged offenses occurred years ago. so, the accusers say they have stories that must be told. and some of them are telling their stories to our tracy smith. >> as long as you're living in
9:33 am
this house, you are not to do any drugs. when you move into your own house, you are not to do any drugs. >> at the height of his power, bill cosby really was america's dad. on his galacticly successful show, the laughs came with lessons. on morality, responsibility, love. >> i brought home two children that may or may not be ours. >> and that makes what's happening now all the harder to comprehend. >> they had the misfortune to meet a man that they admired and thought that they could trust. bill cosby. >> an ever-widening circle of women have accused bill cosby of sexual assault. more than enough to fill the cover of new york magazine this past july. the charges have a common thread. been bill cosby drugged me, kissed me, touched me, raped me. but behind each still photo, is
9:34 am
>> call you every eight minutes. >> kuku bernard was a some time cast member on cosby's show which was taped in new york city. bernard says cosby, whom she then considered a mentor and father figure told him to meet him in atlantic city in 1909. >> he told me that he had to go to atlantic city to meet a producer that he wanted to introduce me to who would further my career. >> once there she says cosby gave her a drink that made her violently ill. then helped her to the bathroom she thought to clean up. still thinking he's this father figure. >> he's going to wash me. next thing i remember now he's not only pulling off my skirt and my jacket but also taking off my stockings and my shoes and -- i must have pass dollars out at this point because next thing i remember -- sorry. >> when she woke up naked and groggy in a hotel bathtub she says she heard cosby's voice. >> i remember him saying, are you okay, bernard?
9:35 am
then i must have passed out again in the tub naked, i'm totally naked. still don't know how i got into the tub he must have carried me or lifted me or dragged me. i don't know. >> did you think about going to the police? >> yes. i told bill cosby i would call the police. i said i would call the police. and he threatened me that if i called the police that he, the minute that i come back from the police he would go to the police and file a police report against me for false accusation and defamation. who are they going to believe, bernard, you or me? >> what did you think? who are they going to believe? >> never believe me. he was one of the most powerful men in the entertainment industry he was a moralist. he was bill cosby. so, who in the heck is going to believe me? >> it's important to note that bill cosby has not been charged with any crime nor has he or his attorneys admitted any wrongdoing. he did say in a 005 deposition
9:36 am
that he kept quaaludes to give to women he wanted to have sex with. now he's being sued by several other women and has another deposition on october 9th. we all know the phrase, innocent until proven guilty, does that apply to bill cosby? >> innocent until proven guilty is a legal concept. but for bill cosby he's pretty much been convicted in the court of public opinion. and that's in part because so many women have come forward. and he himself admitted that he gave them the drugs. the story starts to add up that he probably did that because they weren't consenting and there for he should be held responsible for his acts. >> but professor laurie leven sockshn for many accusers the clock has run out for any criminal charges. it is certainly possible that bill cosby will live out the rest of his life without being criminally charged for these offenses. he's facing lawsuits, that's something different. but in terms of going to jail,
9:37 am
not so likely. >> and if the allegations are true, bill cosby has been assaulting women for decades. victoria valentino was playboy's miss september, 1963. and an aspiring actress who would get the occasional bit part. >> how soon can you comply? >> can be airborne within three glints but the high point of her life was when her son tony was born. the very lowest moment came in 1969, when a week after his sixth birthday, he accidentally drowned in a back yard pool. >> this saturday, my son would have been 52. he was everything. i breathed for him. >> so your friend said, let me cheer you up. come meet -- >> what she said was actually she said, you need a job. let me introduce to you my buddy bill cosby.
9:38 am
while val valentino and her friend were at dinner she says, he started passing out pills. then he reached over, because i was not being bubbly, he put a pill down next to my glass and said, here, take this. you'll feel better. >> did it make you feel better? >> no. i started feeling like i was going to drop my face in the plate. >> cosby drove them to a hollywood apartment where her friend passed out cold. it was then, she says, that cosby forced himself on her. did you think about going to the police? >> it was the '60s. and in those days, rape victims were revictimized. it wasn't compassion and protection of the victim. oh, no, it was well, what were you wearing? >> so victoria valentino kept her mouth shut. and for decades despite accusations of infidelity and worse cosby's secret was pretty
9:39 am
but cosby became a sort of moral crusader in recent years solding young african americans. >> please, stop it. stop your cursing. >> some saw his preaching as the height of hypocrisy. in a stand up routine last october comedian hannibal burress openly called him out. >> yeah, but you raped women. >> the video went viral inspired a wave of cosby accusers. >> why did you decide to come forward? >> hannibal buress. >> didn't all conspire, hey, let's meet in 2014 and all get together and nail this guy. you know, we'll have the big reunion, you know. i mean, who would have thought that it was like, one more woman coming out you're goingo oh, my, god. oh, my, god.
9:40 am
>> we reached out to bill cosby, his representative told us that there would be no statement or comment for this story. but bill cosby's legacy has already taken a big hit. his name and image are being removed from places as diverse as walt disneyworld and atlanta's historically black spelman college. >> i think heros do diehard in the black community for pretty clear reasons. we haven't had a lot of heros for a real long time. >> columbia university visiting scholar obri henricks says that revulsion is pretty universal. >> there are many who don't want to believe, they can't believe, they don't want their hero to see what the hero does something like this. but 50 women have accused him of rape and that's hard to get over, to overlook. if only one of them is telling the truth it means that he's a rapist. >> like an animal that preyed on me.
9:41 am
>> some of the women are working together now to change statute of limitations laws, if not for them, then for future victims of assault. and that could be bill cosby's real legacy. could it be that bill cosby goes to his grave with all of this still going on? >> i think some of the strategies here to say to bill cosby, you will never have peace for the rest of your life we will be pursuing you, we may not win at every turn but we will be there. >> osgood: still do come. >> this is a top loder. a '57 speed queen.

>> osgood: police in one michigan town are getting back up from a young man who is definitely one of the good guys. the story here is steve hartman. >> this one ever said all police officers were bad. but with all the protests this year, you could understand how someone might get that impression. especially a little someone. >> makes me really sad. >> after seeing one of the protests on the news, 10-year-old jeremie bordua of lansing, michigan, who always wanted to be a police officer, asked his mom march cellula if he had picked the wrong profession. >> he goes, mom, the cops are still the good guys, right? yeah, there are some bad police officers. and there are still the good ones that are trying to protect themselves.

>> a bass. exciting. >> when you describe this area it? >> you can't really describe it. you have to bring them here. i just tell 'em it's a magical place that you've never seen anything like it. >> after the past two years on tour with the eagles, and a lifetime on the road, the 68-year-old musician is spending more time back in that magical place near his hometown of linden, texas. you were born and raised here. >> i was actually born 40 miles from here. but that's only because they had a clinic. >> his new solo album called "cass county" in a nod to his native turfs his first in 15
9:54 am
>> after singing the eagles' material, which of which we've been singing over 40 years now, i really need some other songs to sing, even some of my solo stuff is three decades old now. i want new songs to sing. i have things inside me that i need to get out. >> returning to his roots, he's joined by country stars like dolly parton and martina mcbride. it's the kind of music he listens to go growing up with his father an auto parts dealer and his mom a teacher.
9:55 am
this is your first public appearance? >> this was my first public appearance. mrs. robertson's kindergarten music class. >> at lindena old american legion hall, now a theater, we stopped to talk about henley's musical career which was band. >> but i didn't start out playing drums. i started out for some reason on the trombone. because they needed more trombonists. >> how were you? >> immediate yolker. you still play trombone? >> no. i haven't touched the thing. >> he switched to drums when he formed a group with some linden friends. in 1968, the band had a chance encounter with a young singer named kenny rogers. >> we were in a clothing store in dallas, texas, called the electric rocking horse. we were buying bell bottom pants and nehru jackets and stuff. >> and kenny rogers was there? >> he was there because there was really beautiful girl working there. >> rogers agreed to produce the
9:56 am
band's debut album in los angeles. that's where henry would meet glenn frey who was recording on the same label. together frey and henley would join the backing band for linda ronstadt. >> but you didn't want to be in that band. you both knew it. >> we loved linda. we loved what she was dues musically but we wanted our own band. especially glenn, he wanted to put a band together that had four guys in it who could all sing. >> the eagles formed in 1917, would be the best selling american band of the decade. and their greatest hits album, the best selling record of all
9:57 am
time. their recent retrospective tour was built around a revealing documentary, the history of the eagles. when you saw it all out there, what did you think? >> well, i thought we struck a pretty good balance between the triumphant and the tawdry. the film include some less than charitable comments about henley by former record executive david geffen who signed the eagles but later split with them in a nasty contract dispute. >> he's a malcontent. he's always been a malcontent. and that's just life. >> what did you think when you saw him calling you a mall content? >> well, i mean, that wasn't the first time. i just thought, yeah, that's so him. >> henley was ready to leave it at that, almost. >> can i elaborate on the malcontent?
9:58 am
>> glenn and i both, when we detect dishonesty and unfairness, we are malcontents, as we should be. and we smelled a rat pretty early on. so if that makes me a malcontent, then i'll own it it. >> the history tour was a huge success for of the eagles. grossing more than $250 million. so if the other guys want to do another tour, are you going to answer that call? >> probably. because i think that we will eventually in the next couple of years actually come to the end of it. so i don't want to be the one to call it off. i think glenn will probably be the one to call off the eagles thing. i think it will be his decision when it's time to stop. i'll leave that to him. >> can you imagine ending it? >> yeah, i can. i'll be okay with that.
9:59 am
i mean, i don't really like the limelight, you know. i never have. but i have to sell this album. >> resuming his own success self career has meant returning to cass county where he started a foundation to preserve caddo lake. and to lindez you used to spend a lot of time to the movie theater. henley, lives several hours away in dallas with his wife and three children, bought the land the theater used to stand on. >> one night i came i saw the blob. >> the blob? >> then i had to talk home. >> he also owns the barbershop and several other buildings. so feels like you own almost half the town. >> yeah. there's one born every minute.
10:00 am
>> there's got to be a mart of you are trying to hold ton something here. >> yeah, i'm not sure what it is. there's that great quote from t.s.eliot we shall not ceas fresh exploration and the end of all our exploring will be to return where we started and know the place for the f first time. >> he bought those buildings to help his hometown. but this farm land, henry says, he bought for himself and his family. >> this is going be my retirement place. >> it is? >> partly, at least, yeah. where i want to have the corn field. >> after a life in the fast lane, don henley is finding his way home. >> my big dream that i hope to accomplish in the next few years is to have a corn field like my father had. that was my field of dreams when i was growing up.
10:01 am

companies everywhere are working harder and investing more. but achieving the right outcomes has never been more difficult. xerox engineers a better way for people, process and technology to work together. improving how the world shops, travels, pleases customers, learns, banks, and stays healthy, so... life works better. work can work better. with xerox. from bobbleheads to toast bearing his image, american catholics await the arrival of pope francis. gaffigan. >> next saturday i will be performing stand-up comedy for
10:04 am
1.5 million people. and that's not the intimidating part of the gig. one of the audience members will be pope francis. i'm catholic. a practicing catholic and my wife will tell you i need the practice. i hope the pope understands. the pope is known throughout the world and the spiritual leader of over a billion catholics. that's right, pope francis is bigger than justin bieber. i guess could you say the pope is like a catholic super hero. he's got the cape, the hat. his car is even called the pope mobile. pop is a tough job, we photo is a tough job because the last pope quit. i'm done. i'm out of here. and everyone in the vatican was like, uh, you're supposed to speak for god until you die. the pope was like, god told me to quit. and to eat more cheese. most of us don't even have pope
10:05 am
i wonder if when pope francis was growing up he fantasized about being pope. about being professional athlete, was he eight years old in his back yard? there he is, the leader of all the catholics. what a pop. what a pope. wouldn't it be great to end up be pope. your son is a doctor? sours pope. yours has a nice house. our son has his own city. it's in europe. it would have been weird to go somebody did. somebody was sitting at home in argentina watching tv. wait a minute, that guy is pope? it's not easy being catholic today in america. it's a little like being cubs fan for the last hundred years. love the team, not crazy about some of the management we've had. pope francis is looking to change.
10:06 am
that upon his election pope francis didn't move into the palace but simple boarding house. pope francis washed the feet of strangers. it doesn't get any more humble than that. by the wayf you are going to wash a stranger's feet, ask permission first. and remove their shoes. i learned that the hard way. pope francis also calls people on the telephone. i don't know why you would believe it's the pope. hello? this is the pope. oh, can you hold? i have spider-man on the other line. while pope francis is warm and genuine, i believe the thing catholics and non-catholics respond to most is his humility. this age of putin, isis and trump, it's so nice to hear a world leader say, who am i to judge? >> osgood: coming up.
10:07 am
>> osgood: man with a camera. want to see your future? you're me, right? (engine rev) i obviously haven't slowed down at all! what do you think? the key is to stay hungry. by the way, our wife's in there. seriously??
10:08 am
he's a man on a mission. >> to describe alex gibney as proceed live sick an understatement. he has made 14 documentaries in just five years. exploring what one reporter calls, the porous boundaries between good and bad. his subjects range from enron -- >> it has taken enron 16 years to go from about 10 billion in as stoats 65 in assets. took them 24 days to go bankrupt. >> to the fall of former new york governor, eliott spitzer. >> my view is i brought myself down. and i will not try to blame others or excuse my behavior. i did what i did. and shame on me. >> now in his crosshairs, steve jobs. >> do you think early on steve
10:09 am
could be the guy? >> definitely. spend few minutes with him you knew it. he had the ability to talk about the possibility of what this computer could be. >> when the apple ceo died in 2011, gibney says he was intrigued by the outpouring of grief over jobs' death. that led to "steve jobs: the man in the machine." >> i was haunted by a question, which was, when he died, why was it that so many people who didn't know him wept all over the world? he was the ceo of the world's most valuable corporation and when ceos of big corporations die you don't usually see people around the world lighting candles for them. i looked at a guy who started out very much as a renegade wanting to stick it to the man and ended up becoming the man himself. >> which has come to define your target area.
10:10 am
what did steve jobs do to get on your list? >> well, i didn't set out to stick it to steve jobs. we could sort of influence the world -- >> but the document stare an unvarnished portrait of a visionary, who, by all accounts, was a fiercely competitive businessman. >> it becomes very god father-esque. you're part of my family. an sell my family. you don't want to leave my family. at the end, if you choose to leave my family, should you decide to take so much as one member of my family away from ly i will personally take you down. >> after all this is a man who for years denied the paternity of his eldest daughter. >> she got pregnant. and steve just was not -- it's not me, it's not me. even though that was not a
10:11 am
>> yet, steve jobs is the man who brought us all things "i" from the ipod to the ipad and the iphone. >> i think it it was great contribution in a positive sense was introducing us to these machines and saying, they're not just tools, they can be an extension of yourself. >> the 61-year-old gibney says he prefers his characters and stories more grey than black and white. >> i think about things like living a lie. i didn't live a lot of lies but i lived one big one. >> you were rolling on one film and then suddenly, what happened? >> we had a film that was a kind of heroic come-back story. lance armstrong comes back after many years and as an old man kicks the butt of all the young
10:12 am
>> i like to win. more than anything i can't stand the idea of losing to me -- >> the look in his eye. >> then a funny thing happened. whoopz i lied. >> i lied. not only did i lie but i lied the biggest lie could you possibly image. it wasn't just a little bit of dope here and there i ran a doping program that was there from the start. and even worse, he was the hero to all these cancer survivors. and to find out that actually he was trafficking on their hope and their pain in a way to ennoble himself. that was the real crime. >> so this is jigsaw. >> jigsaw is the name of his production company. >> i'm kind of a puzzle freak. >> gibney is the son of a journalist he says had a deep seated distrust of authority.
10:13 am
>> they say to succeed you're supposed to suck up to and kick down he was the classic guy that sucked down and kicked up. path. >> he was a time. >> then fired. "newsweek," fired. at life, fired. >> still frank gibney seems to have been a big influence on his son along with gibney's step father, theologians william sloan coffin. >> something about my father, my mother then my step father, they all rudderred against authority in their own peculiar ways. and that probably rubbed off on me, too. >> alex gibney won an oscar in 2008 for "taxi to the dark side" unflinching look at america's use of torture in the post 9/11 world. >> about a week later, something is going to happen now. two prisoners die within a week of each other, that's bad. >> his film about the catholic
10:14 am
sexual abuse earned him two emmy awards. >> before i had this idea that we had treatment centers around the world for priests to go to when they sexually molested, raped, sodomized kids. >> earlier this year he turned his focus on the religion of tom cruise and john travolta, in hbo's "going clear: scientology and the prison of belief." >> to understand scientology, you have to understand the life and mind of the inventor. >> gibney often narrates his own work, putting himself in the line of fire. the church of scientology took out a full page newspaper ad denouncing him and his film. how you've been described, cool customer. kind of fearless. you are unafraid to be -- take on bullies who have a reputation
10:15 am
you're not afraid of that? >> you'd be crazy not to be a little bit afraid of that. but if you're too afraid, you're frozen. that's how the bullies win. if you don't stand up they get away with murder. >> from his office with his view of manhattan, alex gibney is a man on a mission. >> bullies make me angry. >> they make you so angry i think your face got a little bit me angry. >> maybe so. that's one of the reasons i chose the scientology film, that's a film about bullies. how innocent people who want to better their lives are basically manipulated and bullied by a few people in rather brutal ways. so that's what gets me motivated. that's what gets me up in the morning. >> last week, going clear, won three emmy awards among them the
10:16 am
documentary. straight talk. multiplied by 13,000 financial advisors it's how edward jones makes sense of investing. i heard i could call angie's list if i needed work done around my house at a fair price. sure can. so i could get a faulty light switch fixed? yup! or make a backyard pizza oven? oh yeah. i can almost taste it now. tastes like victory. and pepperoni... staying in rhythm... it's how i try to live... how i stay active. so i need nutrition... that won't weigh me down. for the nutrition you want without the calories you don't... introducing boost 100 calories. each delicious snack size drink gives you... 25 vitamins and minerals and 10 grams of protein. so it's big in nutrition and small in calories. i'm not about to swim in the slow lane.
