,, captioning funded by cbs good morning. it is thursday, february 16, 2012. welcome to studio 57 at the cbs broadcast center. i'm charlie rose. congress cuts a late night deal to he can tend a payroll tax cut as republicans see the political writing on the wall. also, iran sending mixed messages to the world when it comes to its nuclear program. we'll talk with steven hadley. i'm erica hill, gm is making a profit again. why is the company cutting off pensions for thousands of employees? you'll meet a tv reporter under attack by parents and teens for exposing underage drinking.
7:01 am
i'm gayle king, when i see you at 8:00, dr. phil mcgraw talks about the tenth anniversary of his top-rated daytime show. e. the star of the number one movie, ryan reynolds stops by. as we do every morning, we begin with today's eye-opener, your world in 90 seconds. we've reached an agreement. i'll call you back. >> there you have it. >> capitol hill negotiators seal a deal on the payroll tax cut with congress set to vote this week. >> i've learned to wait until i see the deal to know that there's a deal. >> this really does bring back memories. any old girlfriends here? >> mitt romney looks to regain momentum in his home state of michigan. >> it's really funny that governor romney attacked us as the insider and we're not. >> i swear this is real. this is a real political ad. >> he's firing at rick santorum. >> that was fun wrer in six weeks when santorum is endorsing romney.
7:02 am
>> life begins at conception. >> oklahoma debate has a personhood bill. >> the underwear bomber could be hit with five life sentences when he faces a judge. >> the taliban begins peace talks with the u.s. and afghan stain. set fire to an office of a newspaper in mexico. you have to see it to believe it. >> the child was stuck in a game machine. >> all that and more. >> what a per pass. >> on "cbs this morning." >> do you have to wear underpants anymore. i would think at this stage of your career, you have people who could hug your groin for you. >> i had a little trouble along those lines. welcome to "cbs this morning." just a few days ago, congress was facing yet another deadline and deadlock over cutting
7:03 am
payroll taxes. but late last night house and senate negotiators agreed to extend a tax cut until the end of the year. >> the deal also covers extended jobless benefits and medicare payments to doctors according to senator max baucus. >> receiving unemployment benefits, seniors are going to be able to see their doctors to get medicare. it's good for the country. >> congressional correspondent nancy cordes is on capitol hill. nancy, good morning. >> reporter: charlie, good morning to you. there were last minute disputes last night over how exactly to pay for this $50 billion package. it was quite tense there for a while. this is the kind of thing that's brought down so many bipartisan negotiations here on capitol hill. lately, we understand the president even made phone calls. in the end, they were able to push through, work it out. that means 160 million americans will keep this payroll tax cut
7:04 am
through the end of the year. that's the equivalent of a thousand dollars in the average american's family's pocket, charlie. >> does either side benefit more politically? >> republicans gave up their long held insistence that this payroll tax cut had to be paid for with spending cuts elsewhere. that would have meant that negotiators would have had to find instead of $50 billion in cuts, $150 billion in spending cuts. they were deadlocked and the negotiations were going nowhere. we were up against the deadline when they let go of that insistence, that paved the way forward for both sides. so democrats feel that they won, but republicans feel that they have neutralized an election year issue preventing the president and democrats from attacking them for holding up a tax cut for the middle cls. >> nancy, thanks so much. in presidential politics, the next big republican contest is the michigan primary at the end of february. and rick santorum is surging
7:05 am
there as he takes the lead in several national polls. >> this morning, as mitt romney campaigns in the state where he grew up, he's calling himself the underdog. national correspondent chip reid has more on that. good morning. >> good morning, erica and charlie. michigan could be make or break for mitt romney. he grew up in michigan. his father was the governor. until recently, his campaign was hoping for an easy win. not anymore. >> there's a lot of high schoolers here. >> mitt romney threw himself i welcome home rally last night in grand rapids, michigan. he seemed to acknowledge he has ground to make up. >> it's always a good thing to be seen as the underdog, to be fighting hard. never take anything for granted. work very hard. >> romney hopes a victory in michigan helps him to regain the momentum he lost last week when rival, rick santorum won three states changing the dynamic of the race. >> thank you for the welcome. >> in michigan, where the unemployment rate is over 9%, santorum is highlighting his plan to revitalize manufacturing
7:06 am
and several polls have him ahead of romney, in one poll by six points. that has the ad war heating up with romney reminding voters it's his home turf. >> michigan has been my home, this is personal. >> for superb pacs, they've committed more than $6 million to do to rick santorum. >> big spender, washington insider imt. >> what it did to newt gingrich in florida. >> he has more baggage han the airlines. >> santorum is fighting back with a new ad of his own, complete with a romney look alike firing mud at a santorum cutout. >> mitt romney's ugly attacks are going to backfire. >> today santorum speaks to the detroit economic club to lay out his manufacturing plan. romney gets an important endorsement from the governor of michigan, rick snyder. charlie and erica? >> chip, thanks. political director, john dickerson is with us. >> good morning. >> this could be a tough one.
7:07 am
>> very tough one. also because romney put all of his chips on michigan. they can't really lower expectations. when you say this is personal, this was my home, it's really put the focus on michigan. >> where will the romney camp go after santorum? >> two places. one, washington insider. he's a part of the problem and romney will, of course, point out that he was never in washington. also on leadership. romney will say in my business career, in turning around the olympics, i had she is attributes. romney can't go after him too hard. because his numbers have been getting worse among independents who he'll need for the general election. he gets in the way of his message about the economy. if he's attacking all the time, he can't talk about what people like about with romney which is hopefully his ability to turn around the economy. >> does social conservatives play a role there? >> they do. in the 2008 exit polls after the primary, 36% were evangelical christians. that's a number to watch. those evangelicals have gone for santorum, had issues with romney. that's a key number to watch in
7:08 am
michigan. >> is this now just down to thestwo? >> pretty much. newt gingrich would like you to think it's not. but if you look at the polling and cbs had a national poll this week but if you look in the state polls, gingrich is crate erg. his numbers are going down. that support is going to santorum. some places the vote still splits. romney would like them to split between the two. rick santorum is the candidate who has got the grassroots behind him right now. >> when michigan goes to the polls to vote here, romney and arguing that he is from michigan plays how strong? >> it played pretty strongly in 2008. about 42% of the voters in the exit polls said it had something to do with their decision. but that was a totally different race. john mccain pretty much had it locked up. >> he was running as a conservative. >> he was the can storm of his time. now he's -- he's playing on the
7:09 am
family ties. we'll just have to see how it works here. i mean, the problem in in race is people who are looking for a kaitd they can connect with, the guy they love is right now santorum. he's got that energy. the question is whether romney's ties and his family can sap some of that energy. we'll have to see hoefer the next couple of weeks. >> thanks, john. mix signals from iran. a government proudly announcing advances in its nuclear program on wednesday and threatening to stop oil exports to europe. >> iran says it's ready to resume nuclear talks with the west. steven hadley, george w. bush's national security adviser. good morning, steven. >> good morning, sir. >> tell me where you think iran is or is this talk or has something changed? >> it's pretty clear that the sanctions are having a bite. it's pushed the iranian currency down dramatically. i think that accounts for the iran's indications they're willing to return to some
7:10 am
conversations about its nuclear program. of course, iran doesn't want to show weakness. at the same time they say they're coming bag back to talk, they talk about the progress the nuclear program has made and willingness to cut off european customers involved in the sanctions. it's the conciliation and tough talk that we've seen from iran before. >> you've seen it before. the fear has always been, while they promise to talk, they're making further advancements. >> exactly right, charlie. the issue is, is iran willing to give up its enrichment program? that's what all the fuss is about. most of the people you talk to say iran is just never willing to give up its enrichments program and the international community is really made clear they can't settle for anything less than giving up that enrich. program. while the talking makes people feel good, the real question is, is it going to lead to a solution or just really an effort by iran to shed some of
7:11 am
the pressure and buy some time as it moves forward with its program? >> do you think the russians or the chinese can have any impact on iran at this time? >> i think they could have enormous impact if they would join with the sanctions and joining putting pressure on iran so iran is increasingly isolated. now, china has said that they will cut their imports of iranian oil by about 50%. that's good. but basically in terms of the u.n. security council where a lot of the work of pressuring iran gets done, china and russia iran's protectors in many ways. >> how israel looks at the timetable and where they see the red line and where the united states sees the red line, is there a difference today and are the israelis more nervous about where iran is and this new idea of immunity? >> i think they are becoming nervous about iran. they're worried about this
7:12 am
second enrichment facility around kumo, an underground facility which would make it difficult to take military action against. i think the israelis are concerned. i think the real question forisse real, is the united states serious about using sanction and other options as the president has said, to prevent iran from having a clear access to a nuclear weapon. if israel thinks the united states is serious about that and that really all options are on the table, then they're willing to give us, i think, more time. approximate they think we're n serious about seeing this through, then the temptation comes for them to act on their own. that would be unfortunate. >> what would they have to do, what would the united states have to do to convince the prime minister of israel coming here this month that they're serous, that the obama administration is serious? >> i think part of it is to accelerate the sanctions.
7:13 am
everybody talked about the europeans willing to cut off oil. but that oil cutoff will not occur untijuly 1st. it will have some exceptions as i understand it for greece, spain and portugal. it will grandfather existing contracts. that doesn't sound quite as serious as an effort really to cut off the central bank, cut off the access to this swift financial clearing facility in europe and really put all the pressure in terms of sanctions now. i think that kind of more vigorous effort to pressure the regime and then the second question, charlie, is really how are the iranian people reacting to this? how are they reacting to what's happening in their region. will assad fall in syria and, if so, when the presidential elecon this is iran comes up in the middle of 2013 and the regime once again tries to fix the outcome of that election, will the people stand for it in
7:14 am
iran. those are the questions we need to discuss >> thank you, stephen, good to see you. >> nice to see you, sir. this underwear bomber will be sentenced today in a court. umar farouk abdul-mutallab claims he tried to blow up a jet on christmas day 2009. abdul-mutallab was object on a suicide mission for al qaeda he said. he faces a mandatory life sentence. the oklahoma state senate voted 34-8 to faesh that life begins at the moment of conception much the so-called personhood bill would give embryos and fetuses old rights and i am munts of other citizens. the medical association is adamantly against it. it could make birth control and medical procedures illegal. controversy for the mormon church. it's apologized to the family of -- for having his parents baptized. he survived the holocaust and spent decades tracking down
7:15 am
former nazis. they were baptized in a mormon ritual that was officially banned. some believe it's the only way for nonmormons to get to heaven. it appears whitney houston's fans will get to say a final farewell. the ceremony will be private but the service will be streamed live online and will also be available by satellite to broadcasters. meantime the l.a. coroner's office issued subpoenas to get houston's medical and prescription records. this morning, general motors says no more pensions for white collar workers. that announcement is raising concerns about gm's finance and the future of pension plans in general. >> rebecca jarvis is here with more on that. becky, what is gm doing with this announcement? >> it's doing two things. first of all, it's freezing pay on 26,000 salaried workers, but the big news here is what's happening to pensions.
7:16 am
for those workers 19,000 of them hired before 2001, they will see their pension plan come to an end. they will now be converted to a 401(k) traditional program where there's no defined benefit, there's instead a defined contribution that lessens some of the burden on general motors going forward. >> that lessens some of the burden. there's a question, though about how it will work out down the road for general motors. >> what it means is that general motors is facing two primary concerns right now. one of them has been occurring for many years now. that's the pension plan. the fact of the matter is, pensions are a huge liability. they're a huge obligation in general for car companies, for the automakers in detroit. it's one of the reasons that the automakers face so much trouble when our economy started to slow down. that's one issue. the other issue here is the european situation, europe has been slowing down. that's something that's less of
7:17 am
their control. there are still 500,000 workers who have now left general motors, who they are still paying pension plans to. that's a $9 billion shortfall that general motors is facing. in a company that's making about $8 billion in profits, that's really hard to continue to pay out over time. >> what about the bailout and where that stands? how does that affect taxpayer money? >> as one of the two major burdens facing general motors to lessen that burden, to stop paying into pension plans for a number of its workers, general motors ideally is creating a situation that's better for taxpayers and better for stockholders. it hopefully will amount to more gains for the stock price. the stock as it stands has to double in order for american taxpayers to make back the entirety of the government's stake in the company. >> becky, thanks. tonight the "cbs evening news" will have an interview with general motors ceo daniel akerson. we begin with the seattle

7:31 am
washington, d.c. affiliate got such a strong reaction, it forced the reporter off the air and put her family at risk. jeff glor has more. >> good morning to you. andrea mccarren did this to deal with some of the fallout. but now she is back refocusing on the issue of underage drinking. >> tonight a gritty look at the realities of destructive teenage behavior. she returned to the air last night after an unusual break that began not long after the veteran reporter from cbs' washington affiliate, w usa began filing a series of reports on underage drinking. >> weep watched and videotaped dozens of teenagers buying alcohol in northwest washington without being asked for identification. >> i'm 18. it is very easy. we've been buying here for like almost two years. >> following that, teens upset mccarren had blown their cover flooded the station's facebook
7:32 am
page with angry message. you're now the most hated woman in the d.c. metro area 1 person wrote. the comments only got nastr after another report was delivered about a police raid on an underage party. >> hey, everybody clam. >> that bust took a surprising turn when parents arrived at the scene apparently upset with police and mccarren but not their own kids. >> why is there a camera -- >> because they're with us, ma'am. >> i told they were with -- >> after she says her own children were threatened at school, mccarren pulled herself off o the air. letting derek mcginty take over two of her stories. 99% of the feedback they got about her report was actually positive. mccarren herself says it's too big a problem and won't stuff. >> we do intend to pursue every aspect of this story. >> andrea mccarren is us from
7:33 am
the wusa studios in washington. good morning. >> good morning. >> this is extraordinary. the level -- i mean, were you scared? were you surprised? give us a sense of how you felt when you read these messages and how bizarre and threatening they were? >> charlie, i was flabbergasted. at first i was frightened and then i became angry. it felt like an orchestrated facebook and twitter campaign of hate. people put my home address on the internet. there were calls for revenge and retaliation against my family. i'm now in about my 27th year as a reporter and i have never seen anything like this. it seems like these suburban affluent kids have simply never been told no. they have an inflated sense of entitlement. they feel entitled to cell phones, computers, cars and in this case, they appear to feel entitled to doing something illegal, which is drink underage of 2.
7:34 am
>> andrea, one of the most surprising parts about that backlash from the outside is the reaction that you got from parents who were equally outraged as their teenagers were. >> one of the most memorable things, erica was at an underage drinking party that was busted by police, one of the parents showed up to collect his son and he said right in front of police, why didn't you run? i mean, why were they outraged, because their kids were identified on television, that's what made them angry? >> actually, we didn't identify them. we were very careful not to. we were on public streets. we could have legally shown their faces but as minors, we chose to protect them. they were outraged at the unwanted attention. it's also incredibly baffling to all of us how d.c.'s liquor control board has taken no action. as a bit of background, i should tell you that two months before we confronted that liquor store
7:35 am
owner that has been sell for years to minors as young as 14 in plain sight, we brought this to the attention of d.c. police as well as the control board, yet they did nothing. and ntinue not to ve taken any action. we just can't understand what is more pressing, what is more important than protecting the children of the district and surrounding areas in. >> jeff is with us here at the table. what's interesting to me is, did the parents know this was taking place? did they know their kids were drinking? did they know they were going to this particular place and simply said that's okay? >> they may have. but maybe they didn't care that much. andrea, i'm curious where the situation improved for your kids? >> it has. in fact, before i returned to the air last night, i sat down with my kids to talk about, i showed them some of the very kind viewer e-mails supporting what we're doing and i have their full support. but to your last question about
7:36 am
whether the parents condone this, there's a disturbing trend in suburban washington and that is parents actually hosting these underage drinking parties. some feel it's safer to have them drink at home where they can collect the car keys and as some have said, teach their children to drink responsibly. >> this is almost as much about parents attitude about the children's drinking as it is about a fear that a reporter felt because of threats to her and her family. >> very much so. i think -- you would not believe some of the things we've heard from parents when we've been at the party busts. the first thing they do is threaten to sue. threaten to sue police. threaten to sue us. i mean, it all starts at home. i think that's why we want to get this message out. personally, as a reporter and i think all three of you can understand, i felt like i could not cover one more carload of drunk kids wrapped around a tree and interview one morissette of
7:37 am
grieving parents without trying to do something with this extraordinary reach of the media to effect positive change. we will absolutely be staying on this story. what began as a week's worth of reports quickly extended to months and now there's no end in sight. >> we'll keep an eye on it too. andrea, appreciate you taking time for us and for doing the reports. >> thank you all. reid hoffman is called one of the sharpest minds in business world. here a few example. facebook, zynga, paypal, linked-in. lucky you. he's here to help you build a plan for success this morning. tomorrow, we'll show you five things that your hotel won't tell you about. five things. you're watching "cbs this morning."

7:44 am
the key people who adapt are entrepreneurs. we need to be thentrepreneurs of ourselves. >> you said to me in another program, you said look at data. people who can understand and manipulate data are on to one of the big ideas of the future, right? >> yes. well, one. things happening, we all have mobile phones and more and more smartphones. and we're all participating in social network. a lot of data is being generated. what i did is gave a talk last year about data is web 3-0. i think that the -- data will help us maneuver or create applications, help us maneuver in life much better. that's part of one of the pieces of the future of the next generation of internet technology. >> web 3-0. >> what -- linked-in in the way people use it has evolved to help me find a job to help me keep that job and move on to the next thing. that what envisioned, that it would evolve in that way sm.

>> yes. everybody needs to be investing in themselves. knowing what skills to be doing, what's going on with the industry. what information they need to know. how do they establish their own competitive differentiation. linked-in was designed to be the platform for that. in some sense, the book is actually the conceptual frameworks that are related to how to use the platform. >> when you look at ipos, you have experienced one and i know there's a period about facebook. but just put this whole thing in context. this huge facebook ipo. tell me how large it is, how big it is, what implications it has, not what the price is going to be and who benefits. >> clearly, some people think that the social web has been played, you have facebook, linked-in, twitter. i think that the notion of the social web is actually still at its very beginning stages and the notion of how we form these human ecosystems, these societies together, i think
7:46 am
we've just begun to see the interesting apps by which people navigate sharing with their friends or managing careers. >> the question is, how are people going to arrive at social media. how will you provide applications that can do things that you never thought you could do with your friends? >> i think there's decades of innovations. >> games is one example. >> one quick question. there's so much talk about young college graduates needing to find a job. you say the escalator is jammed. is there too much focus on a college degree, should we look at vocational skills as a better future? >> i think that the answer is both. not either/or. i think one of the key things is a training and skills in university is all very good. one of the things you need to figure out is how to be adaptive. it's not one training, one educational peri and that's it. it's how do you be adapting to the changing circumstances of the world. one of the things i think is good about vocational training and it's way underplayed here. being skilled at doing something
7:47 am
that gives you a local competitive edge is actually really useful. i think we should play up that. that's not really counter also universities being a really good thing. >> great to have you here. >> great to see good morning, we have gray skies in the area, showers around the region. here is your radar. not looking for a ton of rain, just garden variety of showers, forecast calls for 48, heck, it is about 40 degrees right now. an evening showers, otherwise mostly cloudy, 36, tomorr what a great way to end a work and school week, a some pediatricians are simply fed up with parents who refuse to have their children vaccinated. going as far to even fire these patients from their practice. can doctors really do that? you're watching "cbs this

hill. the defense gets its turn in the murder trial. >> prosecutors rested their cas on wednesday after friends testified the defendant was out of control. whit johnson is covering the trial in charlottesville, virginia. good morning. >> good morning, erica. the day before yeardley love's body was found, friends say hugely was belligerent and drinking. that night he was worse. disappeared for a while and came back and lied about where he was. in wednesday's testimony, teammates of george huguely painted him as a menacing drunk. around midnight may 3rd, 2010, friends say huguely was gone from his apartment where he was partying earlier. roughly the same time yeardley love was allegedly beaten to death. when he came back one teammate said, there was no doubt in my mind there was a change in huguely's demeanor. he had a blank stare on his face. but huguely never explained what
8:02 am
was wrong. instead, he gave some story about visiting friends that the teammate knew was a lie. >> that showed consciousness of guilt. >> attorney scott goodman who practiced law in charlottesville for 34 years says the testimony hurts the defense, which claims huguely was way too drunk to plot a murder. >> shows he was aware he had done something wrong, had something to hide and had the ability to form that presence of mind to say it. >> teammates say huguely had been drinking all day during a father-son golf tournament. one saw him with a beer in hand about 11:00 a.m. by that night, another said he was sloppy, incoherent. not speaking properly. he was later seen pooeing on the side of a building. this kind of behavior was by now a regular occurrence. behavior that led to abuse and as many asking how it could take place between two successful well-educated young people. experts in domestic violence are not surprised.
8:03 am
>> it can happen to people of all ages, people of all walks of life. if you live in the inner city or if you live in a very privileged background, it really doesn't matter. you could be a victim of this crime. >> tragically, friends of the couple say they considered an intervention. even on that last night. but it never came. >> we've also learned that on that night, george huguely was exchanging what were described as playful text messages with three other women. those messages continued late into the night and even after the alleged attack. >> whit johnson in charlottesville this morning. thank you. we put a lot in recent years about parents refusing to having their children immunized. some worry they could lead to autism. now though, more physicians simply saying no to parents like that according to the wall street jurm. we visited one pediatrician who sent some parents packing already. at the northwestern
8:04 am
children's practice in chicago, this is a familiar sound. that's because the practice requires parents of all their patients agree to have their children vaccinated. >> vaccines have done more than anything else over the past 100 years to improve the health of children. when dr. goldstein announced the new policy, they knew some parents wouldn't like it and they would just go. >> if you don't believe in what we believe in, then you need to go somewhere else. >> but most, like amy and peter, agree on the importance of vaccinations. >> it's good for her to keep her safe and healthy. also for the community and for some vulnerable populations out there who could get sick if she wasn't vaccinated. >> it makes a lot of sense. i don't want my child around kids who aren't vaccinated. >> this practice isn't the only one. a recent national survey found 25% of pediatricians fired
8:05 am
patients due to vaccine refusal. it remains controversial. according to guidelines from the american academy of pediatrics. pediatricians should avoid discharging patients from practice solely because a parent refuses to immunize his or her child. however, the pediatrician may encourage the family to find another physician or practice. while some parents remain convinced vaccines could harm their children, dr. goldstein says the real danger is in not getting vaccinated. >> most people my age hav never seen a case of polio or measles. but when we ask our parents and grandparent, they remember it very well. this is the best way to protect kids. >> it's all over. okay. >> pediatrician, dr. levine with with us now. she's a spokesman for the american academy of pediatrics. good morning. >> good morning. >> we were talking about you and your colleagues yesterday at a meeting. we were surprised to hear that doctors could even do this.
8:06 am
>> the issue is that the relationship between parent and the pediatrician is a collaboration. you need to see eye to eye on fundamental issues, like safety, disease prevention, how to best take care of your child. i hope that the parents come to my office don't want me to stamp their school form and they care about what i have to say. >> can you see your self-saying to a parent, well, if you're not following my advice, take your business elsewhere? >> i'm up front with our parents. on the website before they walk in the door, they see that we're advocates of vaccines, we follow the schedule recommended. we do a lot of prenatal consults. i always talk to parents about it. it's really important and it's my role to educate parents. so i want to take the time to listen, hear what their concerns are and explain the science behind it. >> and you are the spokesman for the american academy of pediatrics. we heard what they said. to follow gayle's point. have you ever been in a situation where you've had to say to a parent, i don't think we're on the same page here, perhaps you're better off with
8:07 am
another doctor? >> i've been in situations where parents have said they're uncomfortable, something is scaring me, this is what i read. i have a friend who feels this. but i do find if you take the time to really talk to people and work with them, for instance, i have patients in my practice that come in once a instead of over two months. that's okay, as long as the end result is that the child ln vx nated. what about the concern that parents ve that children not vaccinated can increase their risk of contracting some disease. >> that's a true risk. the idea is you want to keep your waiting room and your community safe for your patients. there were two confirmed cases of measles at the super bowl. nobody thought they would have a great weekend and exposed to the measles. the problem is there's an incubation period where you are infected and contagious and you don't know you have the disease. that puts other children at risk. what about the children are too
8:08 am
young or too sick, children on chemotherapy. community. that's our responsibility. >> the link too, that some parents raised between vaccines and autism. don't some parents have the right to be concerned? >> there is an overwhelming growing body of evidence that shows that there is not a link between vaccines and autism. >> i see your passion with it. i've seen so many people with with their -- >> i think we make medical decisions, we have to base those decisions on science, not on emotion or an anecdote, not on what some mother claim to be true for her child. if you look at the science, they're the safest and most effective way to prevent illness. you're saying vaccines? >> absolutely. i vaccinated my own children, i vaccinate my patients. i would o do it again. my own father had polio. all you have to do is hear his story to be 13 years old, to think you're going to die, to
8:09 am
watch the person next to you die, not know how it is the disease is transmitted and how to treat it. the problem is, the vaccines are a victim of their own sub ses. parents don't realize how devastating they were for communitiesment. >> dr. levine, nice to good morning, we have got gray skies, there have been showers in the area overnight and we continue to see them meander across radar. a high temperature of 48, primarily but not exclusively obviously, tonight we clear out to mostly cloudy 36, tomorrow beautiful, sunny with a high of 54, keep it at 50, stark sunn a guy who grew up in the north texas oil fields has the most popular daytime show on tv these days. if you think you know dr. phil from his program, you may be

[ rv guy ] enbrel may not work for everyone -- and may not clear you completely, but for many, it gets skin clearer fast, within 2 months, and keeps it clearer up to 9 months. [ male announcer ] because enbrel suppresses your immune system, it may lower your ability to fight infections. serious, sometimes fatal, events including infections, tuberculosis, lymphoma, other cancers, and nervous system and blood disorders have occurred. before starting enbrel, your doctor should test you for tuberculosis and discuss whether you've been to a region where certain fungal infections are common. don't start enbrel if you have an infection like the flu.
8:15 am
tell your doctor if you're prone to infections, have cuts or sores, have had hepatitis b, have been treated for heart failure, or if, while on enbrel, you experience persistent fever, bruising, bleeding, or paleness. if you've had enough, ask your dermatologist about enbrel.
