tv CBS This Morning CBS June 2, 2012 8:00am-10:00am EDT
heroes helping her save the day. all that and more on "cbs this morning: saturday," june 2, 2012. good morning to you all and happy saturday. >> happy saturday, indeed. >> anthony mason, thank you for being here. >> you guys get up early. >> we do get up early. there are lots of people throughout the country who do, and i'm sure they'll be happy to see you here. obviously, a big weekend for jobs and the economy. >> very big. we're honored to have "cbs this morning's" erica hill at buckingham palace. she'll be joining us throughout
the show with some flavor from the jubilee. great to have you with us, erica. >> it's nice to be with the both of you. we'll give you, as you mentioned, a little look back at the 60 years of queen elizabeth ii's reign. we'll take you to one of those street parties that's happening today, actually all over the country. charlie d'agata is on the scene and he'll give us a flavor perform what's happening. i'll send it back to you. >> thanks so much. we'll check in with you in a few moments. we want to turn to egypt where something has happened this morning that has never happened before. the deposed leader of an arab country accused of killing his own people was sentenced to life in prison. the announcement of hosni mubarak's sentence triggered both anger and celebrations in the streets of cairo. and allen piz zey is there, joining us live. tell us about the scene there on the ground now. >> reporter: good morning. a very interesting scene in the
courtroom. hosni mubarak laid back in his gurney, a hospital bed, in a steel cage and listened while the judge read out a litany of the terrible things done during his rule and then sentenced mubarak and former interior minister to life imprisonment for their part -- his complicity, as he put it -- in killing of protesters in the streets to bring down his rule. six police officers also charged are acquitted and charges of corruption were dismissed against mubarak's two sons. that brought the courtroom into a state of chaos. there were fist fights and lawyers for the prosecutor started yelling the entire judicial system needed to be overhauled. while all that was going on, mubarak was whisked away in a helicopter to go back to the prison hospital where he was kept and his sons were taken back to jail. he is the first arab leader ever to be put on trial, sentenced by his own people in his own court.
that's quite something, rebecca. >> allen, i'm getting the impression from reports and your reporting as well that there are those who are angry because the sentence wasn't bigger, it wasn't an execution. >> reporter: what they're really angry about is the six senior police officers were acquitted. the evidence that convicted mubarak and his interior minister is the same evidence that should have been used against those six policemen because they were closer to the police on the ground. they're the ones who would have said to the police officers on the ground to use live ammunition. now, live ammunition killed 840-some-odd protest ez during those 18 days when the overthrow happened, the revolution in tahrir square. people don't understand, how could they be acquitted with the same evidence? that's what the real anger is about. plus, the judge said, you know, there was corruption during mubarak's rule but his sons -- the charges against them on rupgs were dismissed.
they do have to go to court for insider trading, but the people -- they wanted more. they especially wanted those policemen convicted because they say letting them go, gives the police still out there carte blanche to do it again. that's not the message they want to send, rebecca. >> they wanted to see that broad accountability. allen pizzey in cairo, egypt. folks up and down the east coast are drying out and facing a big clean-up after being pummeled overnight by tornadoes and a line of fierce thunderstorms. the mid-atlantic states appear to have gotten the worst of it as whit johnson reports from washington. >> reporter: in southern virginia, friday's storms came sweeping in, moving a yacht from the dock into a nearby parking lot. in maryland, one tornado left nearly 20,000 people in the dark and businesses cleaning up. one twister was briefly spotted by the control tower at baltimore's airport. the storms caused flight delays at several airports throughout the day.
high winds above 50 and 60 miles per hour caused more damage. >> i saw the wind pick up, trees in front of the house were bending over. it was panic. it was just panic. you know, my wife's screaming, trying to find the cats. water seeping down into the family room. >> reporter: but it was the rain most people had to deal with. flash floods covering up country roads, forcing highway drivers to plow their way home and making others abandon their cars all together. >> i went from 3 feet to 5 1/2 feet just like that. luckily for me, my car windows was down, so i jumped out of the car. >> reporter: three teenagers in suburban washington, who were not able to escape from a fast-moving river after playing along its banks h to be rescued by local firefighters and are now safe and dry. for "cbs this morning: saturday," whit johnson, washington. >> now we turn to the economy where things are beginning to look a lot weaker and it's having a big impact on stocks.
plunge friday, erasing the dow's gains for 2012 and ening the month of may down more than 6% following the worst employment report in nearly a year. according to the labor department, unemployment jumped in may to 8.2%, as employers added just 69,000 jobs. hiring in both march and april were also both lower than previous estimates. and the number of long-term unemployed rose 300,000 to 5.4 million. construction, which has been weak as a result of the housing crisis, lost another 28,000 jobs in may. on the other hand, manufacturing did add 12,000 jobs. but a report from the institute of supply management showed factories cut production in may as the global economy stalled. at least nine european countries have double dipped back into recession, including the united kingdom. spain, europe's fourth largest
country. and greece, whose upcoming election could determine whether or not the country stays in the european union. the slowing global economy also cut into auto sales. general motors, ford and chrysler all reported slowing demand for their cars in may. and for a deeper look at what this jobs report means for the overall economy, senior editor for baron's. why is this happening, michael? >> the spring saw a broad slowdown. it's not just the global concerns going on in europe. i think businesses generally have not been aggressive in adding new workers. and it's actually something that's happened the last two years, where we had a little momentum through the winter months, better job gains, a little more looking like we got ahead of steam and then it sort of fell away in the spring. we don't know why. clearly, it's still the same story, which is kind of a bumpy, fitful type recovery that's not very satisfying. >> go ahead. >> no, go ahead. as you look at those numbers,
you mention we had the same pattern last year and at the end of summer last year when europe seemed to stabilize, things looked up and looked better again. is europe going to clear this up if they solve the problem? >> i don't know that it clears it up. i think you can have an easing of the problem. solving the problem isn't on the table yet. they have too much debt. they don't have a path to pay it. if you have confidence that, in fact, you're not going to have some banking system collapse that broadens out from europe, yes, i think you can stabilize things. but we still do have to see some more organic demand in the u.s. it looks okay. look, retail sales. housing looks like it might turn up in activity not in terms of prices. everything's not falling apart. it's just not speeding up at the rate you would like to see. >> internal solutions, federal reserve has some ammo, but that ammo could have influences on
rising gas prices, for example. in an election how do they create balance? >> the federal reserve will tell you an election year shouldn't matter. they should be independent. but look, they're looking at how the economy seems to be progressing relative to their forecast. right now it looks like the economy is not living up to what their baseline expectations were so now the baseline is they may do another package of asset purchases. trying to keep long-term interest rates extremely low. they're already near record lows. maybe they want to get aggressive again. they seem reluctant but it seems like it will happen. >> you're not going to get any help out of washington, are you? that's the main issue, isn't it? >> not enough that could happen in months to stimulate demand. i think we'll have to see if the economy of its own -- of its own strength can gather itself a little bit here. >> michael, thank you so much. we appreciate it. now to politics.
the man running for president obama's job wasted no time pouncing on the new unemployment numbers. mitt romney's campaign issued a statement saying, in short, the president and his administration have, quote, failed to achieve their goals and is crushing america's middle class, end quote. >> joining us from washington is cbs news political director john dickerson. great to have you with us, john. >> good morning. >> how will these jobs numbers play with independent voters? >> they won't play at all. there are been a lot of frivolous things in this campaign issues, but this one is right in the middle of what people care about. it's a number that's very hard to get around. the strategists on both sides over the years have said people lock in their view about the economy about six months before an election. we're five months before the election now and this is really bad news at a bad time. >> john, is there anything -- is there any way the president can play these numbers to his favor or are they simply just bad news, nothing he can do with
them? >> no, it's bad news. a shot to the gut. he has to just endure it. he can try and do some things, which is change the conversation. rather than just a thumbs up or thumbs down on president obama. and he can try and focus in on the states. there are some states, ohio, for example, which is tied to the car industry, which has seen its unemployment rate lower than the national average. that's true in a number of battle ground states. they'll try to focus on what's happening in particular states. but this is all an attempt to get around from this big, ugly thing that sits at the center of this election. >> the whole jobs picture scenario you point out, does become a personal one. they may make ground and headway in key battleground states. i want to turn to something bill clinton talked about earlier this week and he talked about this coming down to ideology. both men have reputations, pedigrees that anyone would want
to see in a president, but that ideology is what it's going to come down to when it comes to those independent voters. i wonder which ideology is going to play more favorably in this kind of climate? >> well, that's what the president -- president clinton would like. that's what democrats would like, which with would be for people to look at this as a competition between two ideologies. the worry among democrats is that people won't ever get to that stage. they'll just decide, you know, we're done with president obama president obama. polls have shown people are tired of his stewardship on the economy, they feel the country is going in the wrong direction. democrats have to get that conversation to be a choice between the two ideologies and then perhaps it's a jump ball, a question of who will improve the future for you and that's one that maybe is a little more favorable. but they've got to get it to that argument first. >> john, last summer we saw a same scenario and the economy seemed to pick up toward the end if it picks up as it approaches the election, will the president benefit from that or as you say,
is this pretty much set now? >> well, that's the trouble. the challenge is since this is the second or third spring in a row which people have seen the economy get a little better and, oops, it's not getting better, they're snake bit. the idea it's getting better is something people would be highly skeptical about. what it looks like in this economy is things aren't going to get so much better, even if they do, in the falls to make people change their minds and feel it in their lives. a lot of strategists believe this is something people basically have their view about the economy and it will be very hard to shake them in terms of their views about whether this economy is robust or not. >> john dickerson, thanks for being with us. there's been a startling development in the trayvon martin case in florida. the man who admits he shot martin, george zimmerman, has been ordered back to jail seven weeks after being free on bail. a judge revoked his bail saying zimmerman misled the court.
mark strassmann with more. >> reporter: that's the seminole county jail, and that's where george zimmerman will be calling home possibly until his trial, unless he can convince a clearly ticked off judge, he deserves a checked chance at bond. >> this time i revoke his bond. no bond status. >> reporter: judge lester clearly angry believed george zimmerman and his wife had lied to him. the couple never told him they raised $135,000 in online donations before his bond hearing last april. zimmerman was released on a $15,000 cash. >> the defendant misrepresented, misled and deceived the court as to his family's financial circumstances. >> reporter: at that bond hearing wife shelly zimmerman testified by oath. >> you have no money, that correct? >> to my knowledge, that's correct. >> reporter: they claim during phone calls he talked in coded
talk to transfer that cash. zimmerman's lawyer said his client was confused, not being deceptive. >> he just as i understand it. >> does your defendant get to sit there and run me down a wrong path? >> he runs a tight courtroom, he was frustrated because he doesn't feel they were being as straightforward and honest as they should. the revocation of bond i hope is temporary. >> reporter: zimmerman could actually ask the judge for another bond hearing, even take the stand under oath, to explain himself to a judge who clearly felt misled. hardly the best impression where the defendant's credibility will be key. nato forces rescued four aid workers held by militants in northern afghanistan this morning. the daring helicopter raid was in a remote mountainous
province. they had spent 11 diz in captivity. that giant wildfire in new mexico has burned across 340 square miles of the gila national forest. it's the biggest wildfire in the country right now, the largest ever in new mexico. and it's only about 15% contained. more than 1200 firefighters are trying to bring it under control. three people were killed last night in southeastern nebraska when a pickup truck crashed head-on into a van carrying high school basketball players. two of the team's coaches were killed as was the driver of the pickup. eight players were injured and a vigil for the victims will be held this morning in broken bow, nebraska. finally, something fans of the new york mets, and that includes me, have been waiting for ever since the team was formed half a century ago. that would be -- last night in queens johan santana threw the
first no-hitter over the st. louis cardinals. mets were only one of two major league teams to never had-v a no-hitter. a span of more than 8,000 games. they're not called the amazing mets for nothing. it's about 18 after the hour and here's lonnie quinn with our first check of the weather. >> boy, that was something else that game last night. do you know the only other team in the major leagues? >> tell us. >> i think it's san diego, padres. let's go outside. a foggy picture of new york city. not impressive looking right there. but let'ses get to satellite a radar. now, you look at this picture and your eyes will immediately go to where the activity is. there's this big comma shape of wet weather and it will bring a lot of rain for new england. 2 to 4 inches of rain for boston, augusta, maine, vermont. gusty winds combine with the same system that also pushed through the area around north carolina and pennsylvania with tornadic activity yesterday. on the other side of the coin,
there is going to be wet weather around the pacific northwest but this is damp and gray. you know what, cloudy, temperatures in the 60s. a i will tell you, places like las vegas today, 105 smoking hot degrees. anthony over to you. >> 105 already. >> ouch. all of great britain and much of its former empire is celebrating queen elizabeth today, marking her 60 years on the throne with four days of street parts, concerts and flotillas. >> in the thick of that celebration, just outside buckingham palace is our own
erica hill. cheerio, erica. >> cheerio. it's definitely not 105, a little chillier. we have a great front row seat. i can hear a band down just below us making its way up. we've been watching the troops, too, returning from the major general's review at the horse guard parade. lots going on. and we are having a great time here, here in london. we want to give you a little sense, too, of what we've been watching and why this is so important. >> reporter: back in 1953, june 2nd wit was coronation day. for over a year she had been a queen without a crown since learning about the untimely death of her father while the princess was in kenya. after 60 years on the job, the queen is now taking some time to look back. >> the queen probably has to deal with the ultimate work life
balance, you know, how do you juggle having a young family, as she did, when she came to the throne, and then she had two more children while she was queen. how do you juggle that with not just being the queen of one country but 16 countries. >> reporter: this weekend britain embarks on four days of celebration for only the second monarch to reach a diamond jubilee. on sunday a flotilla of boats 1,000 strong, inspired by this famous painting, will grace the thames, led by the royal barge. on monday evening buckingham palace plays host to rock royalty, sir elton john and sir paul mccartney among them. rehearsals from tuesday's event promised promp and splendor on a diamond scale. a busy weekend but then it's been a busy year. the queen has been out on tour. the 86-year-old monarch's stamina, breathtaking. >> the queen is driven by duty.
she renewed her pledge to serve this country until she died only recently. i mean, this is her overriding mission. >> reporter: a sense of duty handed down to her family. her grandson harry took his first overseas trip this year, flying the flag as only he can. and the duchess of cambridge is getting her how to be a royal 101 from the very best. and today is actually derby day. the queen will be out at epsom derby, which is a big horse race. as we know, the queen loves her horses. great way to kick off the festivities. >> what are you most looking forward to, erica? >> it's hard to pick just one thing. i'm fascinated to see the flotilla on the thames tomorrow. 1,000 boats led by the royal barge, which is a gorgeous red and gold boat. it's much more than a boat, actually. i'm fascinated to see that. it's also supposed to rain all
day tomorrow, so it will be interesting to see how this goes off with a few raindrops coming to the party as well. >> we're looking forward to having you back to this party. erica hill from buckingham palace, thank you so much. we'll check in with you again in the next half hour. erica account will be taking a look back at the queen's most memorable moments, the highs and lows, and some of the most awkward events. >> i like the awkward stuff. if you or someone you know is a compulsive shopper, we'll tell you about a pill to help you kick the habit. you're watching "cbs this morning: saturday." these are ocean spray sparkling juice drinks. they have bubbles. it's real fruit juice; crisp, sparkling water; and no added sugar.

sandusky. former assistant form coach at penn state. jury selection is scheduled to begin on tuesday. armen keteyian takes a look at the explosive case. >> reporter: history sister city courthouse is home to a trial that could not be more clear. is jerry sandusky guilty of serial sexual abuse that could land him in life, or as sandusky states, that is the wrongful reading of a playful man who mentored hundreds of bow. prosecutor is expected to hammer away at the accuser's credibility. up to four could testify, along with mike mcqueary, who says he saw sandusky sexually assault a boy as young as 10 years old. mcqueary testified the abuse took place in march 2002. prosecutors recently moved the date to february 2001. raising questions about mcqueary's memory. >> this is very damaging to mike
mcqueary's testimony because the jury will be asking itself, if mike mcqueary who has no dog in this hunt, is making up a story, could these other witnesses be making up a story as well? i think the prosecution has to do a lot of soul-searching as to whether it puts mike mcqueary on as a witness at all. >> reporter: no cameras will be inside courtroom number one, but the judge is allowing real-time reporting, virtually assuring a community and nation will be transfixed by this real-life legal drama in the days and weeks to come. armen keteyian for "cbs this morning: saturday," new york. >> joining is jean casarez, correspondent for "in session" on trutv. >> why the delays from the defense? . >> this is a massive kaz, 52
counts, 10 alleged victims, the men that were young boys, prosecution wants to put on more prior bad acts, which would be other young men, that were boys, that would say something as though he put his hand on my thigh as we were driving in the car. it's massive. the defense wanted a continuance because they said they have not had enough time. remember, charges were brought late fall, november and december. i've never seen a case like this go to trial so quickly. >> a massive case with a massive amount of publicity. how do you find an impartial jury for something like this? >> that's going to be tough because you're in state college. you're right there where it all happened, where everybody has watched. so many people know jerry sandusky. i have spoken to so many people. i know jerry. i met him at a party. i can't believe it. i think it may be difficult. but this is where jerry sandusky wants the trial. he might be smart about that. >> interesting point. armen keteyian in his report raced the issue of mike
mcqueary's testify, how is that going to play for the prosecution's case? >> that's critical testimony if that count stays in. this is alleged victim two, who prosecutors can't find. defense says they should be dismissed because they don't have that alleged victim. i think it will go forward. mike mcqueary will be the star witness for that alleged victim. as far as not remembering when it happened, i know a lot of people have said they think it's critical, it's terrible. you know, i don't think it's as critical as people will think it is because a lot of the alleged victims are not going to be specifically certain on different dates and different times. >> jean, how many victims are expected to testify? i mean, how many of his accusers is he actually going to face? >> alleged victim number two and number eight, they can't find them, so they will not testify. i think all of the other alleged victims will. you know what's amazing? think of alleged victim number two that mcqueary said he saw in
the shower. this young man has to know who he is, right in listen, when i was in state college yesterday, i was talking with a man that lives there, works there his whole life. he says he has a friend, allegedly we say, says was molested by jerry sandusky and he says my friend won't come forward. he says he doesn't want a thing to do with this. >> how does the defense then build its case? we've heard from sandusky's attorney that he's not denying sandusky even showered with children at his charity. >> they're going to attack the alleged victims. they're going going to say, you're lying. you're here because you want money, you want publicity. you know this didn't happen. they also wanted phone record. they're going to show one alleged victim called the other one to say, hey, yeah, let's get our stories straight here. that's what the trial will be on the side of the defense. >> does the volume of witnesses,
though, play obviously in the prosecution's favor? >> yes, yes, exactly. when you have alleged victim after alleged victim corroborate one another. you have different settings. you have the basement of the sandusky state, the penn state campus showers and locker room, you've got trips, games. yes, corroboration. >> jean casarez, thank you very much. lonnie quinn with another check of the weather. >> guys, thanks very much. what i want to do is take us how to -- look at this pretty looking shot. this is des moines, iowa. des moines will have partly cloudy skies, temperatures in the mid-70s. let's get to satellite and radar. now, there are some things, all do you is look at the picture and you can tell what's going on. you know just by looking there will be wet weather in portions of new england. you can also tell there will be lighter showers but wet weather nonetheless around portions of the pacific northwest. what you can't tell is what's going on around the southwest. take a look at this picture. from portions of southern california right through portions of western texas, that
looks like nothing going on. no rain. not a cloud consequently. super hot temperatures will skyrocket up there. places like yuma, arizona, today, almost 110 degrees. we could be seeing records broken out there. a quick look at the national picture. here's a closer look at the weather for your weekend. happy saturday, everybody. rebecca, over to you. when we come back, erica hill joins us from buckingham palace with a look at the most cherished and most awkward moments in the 60-yir reign of queen elizabeth. you're watching "cbs this morning: saturday." i had enough of feeling embarrassed about my skin.

abdicated when elizabeth was young, it would have been a didn't monarchy. he would have just married and been an artistic wife with dogs and horses, as she wanted to. it's fascinating when you're meant for nothing and suddenly you have to be queen. >> she's fully embraced it. >> she has fully embraced it. she has said repeatedly, will she abdicate? absolutely not. she loves the job. >> there are questions about -- people are fascinated about her. when we see films of the queen and "the king's speech" that involved her father, does she ever watch those movies or weigh in? >> the queen has seen "king's speech." a cousin said she said it was okay. she knows a lot about how she's presented and she's much more
media-savvy than queens and kings have been before her. >> she's also very connected with her government. meetings every week with the prime minister. pretty much every prime minister says they find them invaluable. >> our government is leaky. everything goes out on e-mail. the queen keeps things extremely discrete, which means you wouldn't get bitten. sometimes they can be pishs, a bit. >> why do you think there's been a lot of talk about the popularity of the monarch at an all-time high? kate and william, are they bringing a renewed sense of love for the monarchy? >> we're seeing the queen at a massive level of popularity, not the silver jubilee, the aftermath of princess diana.
she's as popular now as she was in coronation in 189 1952. we love her. we give her everything. she's been in long service. also, as you say, the young generation having the royal wedding last year was the stroke of generous. we're still surfing on the excitement, the love of that. these two new people, we always love the royals. always. >> they're prominently policed although every celebration next to the queen. thank you for being with us. just ahead in the next half hour, we'll continue the celebration of the queen's diamond jubilee here in london as we take you to one of many street parties happening around the country. you're watching "cbs this morning: saturday."

day, 24 hour a damon toring, including monitoring specifically for report that, quote, reflect adversely on the department of homeland security or federal government. we also got this very broad list of search terms, as well as a list of new sites monitored, comment boards monitored and blogs. >> daniel, who's doing the monitoring for these words? >> sure. well, it's computer-based and individual analysts looking at information that can help inform the decisionmakers. the policymakers in washington are not omnipotent. we don't know everything going on in the country. for eyewitness reports -- let's say your home is destroyed by the tornado. who best to report that than citizens themselves? >> these were ordinary search words. were you surprised at how common the words were? >> we were pretty surprised and also surprised they were monitoring specific for dissent and criticism of the government. that falls entirely outside of the statutory bounds of what
this particular agency is supposed to be doing. >> daniel, i imagine the playing field gets so broad here, how does that make their job easier when trying to find a terrorist? >> you make a good point. if you have too many words, what are you realliening? what's key here is to hone in on words that might be of interesting on current events. i laughed at pork. why would the department of homeland want to know about pork? if you open the report it's discussed with health concerns and h1n1. pork wasn't that nonsensical as it sounds. >> it's contextual and not just the words thements? >> of course it's contextual. if it was just words, we'd all be monitored by department of homeland security. i will tell you, they don't have the time, interest to read our facebook and twitter feeds. >> who is doing the monitoring?
people or computers? how is this done? >> people paid by home atlanta department of securities, specifically at general dynamics. if they're just looking for weather disasters, man-made disasters and terrorism like they're supposed to be doing under section 515 of the homeland security act, then they need to narrow their term. >> does it make you rethink what you do online? >> certainly. the fact the agency is monitoring for criticism is very troubling. >> is anybody monitoring the monitors? >> department of homeland security has a privacy. i encourage to you look at that testimony. it describes the safeguards in place and how when this program was first rolled out in 2010 it was done as a series of pilot problems during the haiti earthquake and the bp oil spill to understand how these new sources of information can help inform the decisionmakers so we
don't have something like hurricane katrina where i was in the white house blind and dumb. the media had the information i had to watch. >> now, we watched that testimony. i was at the hearing. if you watch the hearing, they reference a statement we had given to congress in advance of the hearing several time. we wrote a letter afterwards because we saw a lot of inconsistency between what they said and what's evidenced in the document. >> is there any way, lastly, to know if you're monitored? >> all of us that have public profiles, whether it be facebook, twitter, and the media. anybody can do that ginger has a great twitter feed he encourage us all to appreciate. man's best friend is about to get his own best friend. a tv network with plenty of bark. the new capable channel has dogs trying to get their paws on the

all day. that's an unnatural environment for dogs. and anything that can be done to help enrich that environment, it's much better be if you want to think of it as their mental health, which sounds trivial, but it isn't. >> reporter: the colors are muted and shaded towards the blues and yellows dogs see best. the music is, well, for the dogs. right now dog tv is a capable channel available only in san diego, but 46 million american homes have a dog and the producers see pent-up demand, so to speak. >> it's a very, very large market. u.s. dog parents love their dogs. they treat them pretty much like their kids. we truly believe it's going to be a great solution for the millions of dogs left home alone every day. >> reporter: sue has dog tv for his dog, diamond. what was her first reaction? >> oh, the very first night it was crazy. i turned it on said, look, diamond, look. she jumped off the couch, flew
to the tv and jumped up and almost pushed the tv over. >> reporter: chunk, though, is a cooler customer. what would he be like if he had no stimulus and you come home after ten hours? >> i think it would be sad. i think he'd be a little lonely so i think it fills his day. >> reporter: dog tv gives a whole new meaning to putting the remote on pause. for "cbs this morning: saturday," brian rooney, san diego. >> do they have dog dramas? >> i'm curious to see how this plays out. i'm also curious to know, is it really going to be the dogs who watch or humans sitting on their couch at home watching dog tv. >> cat channel can't be far behind and a bird channel? >> lonnie was just saying there's the fish channel -- or a fish channel. >> i'd actually watch that, just staring at a fish bowl for hours. coming up next, prince harry gets choked up talking about the queen's diamond jubilee. stick around.

it was in the brazilian countryside just before a polo match to raise money for his charity that we got the rare opportunity to speak with him. >> you spoke glowingly of your grandmother the last ten days. do you have private ways you'll honor her for the 60th jubilee? >> i don't personally. i've been away. i'm sure when i get back we'll have a dinner and do something fun with her, take her out, it's don't know. >> reporter: does the queen go out on the town? >> i don't know. but she's a fantastic woman. not only a grandmother but a queen, as everybody knows. and me being asked to kick off the jubilee tour was an honor. i never expected the reception, as i said, that we've been given in all these countries. it just shows that despite the fact she's only been to the country two or three times, the impact that she has on these
countries from so far away is quite astonishing. it checks me a little bit because to me she's just gram, but in these countries she's a queen they respect a lot. it's been emotional but great. >> reporter: with helicopters landing behind us here, you grew up in a family where your mother and father were active in charities. as kids, do you remember dinner table conversations about that? did that motivate you? >> probably not. dinner conversations -- the worst thing about being a child and listening to the boring people around me. can you imagine what i had to go through at a young age. >> reporter: what were they like? >> pretty dull. i mean, yes, conversations with my mother and father, my grandparents, you know, about growing up has obviously driven me towards wanting to try to make a difference as much as possible. my brother and myself, all of us -- i can only speak for two
of us -- we're very privileged in the position we are. with privilege comes responsibility, they say. it's amazing the title we have before our name, what effect that can have on a country, a charity, whatever. yeah, we're slowly coming to terms with and accepting the fact it's different so, therefore, have you to use it. >> reporter: do you have to come to terms with that? >> yeah. there are times myself and my brother obviously wish we were just were completely normal. but we've been born into this position. therefore, we'll do what we need to do to make a difference to the people and to kids that need it, you know. it's that simple for us. >> we watched throngs of people just waiting to see you, to catch a glimpse. what is that like from the inside? everyone has this fascination with royalty. does it live up to the fairytale? >> not at all. as any girl will ever tell you.
oh, my god, it's a prince. no, but the job it entails. look at me, i'm 27 years old. not so much sevening for someone to fulfill the role but someone willing to take it on. you know, it is -- it has been slightly strange, this trip especially because the fact i'm representing my grandmother, yeah, people go crazy for royalty. the reception was beyond anything i was ever given or expect. >> when prince harry set out on this trip to honor his grandmother he was seen as a playboy, a party prince, but during the trip he effortless transformed from athletic events to state dinners and more as a diplomat. >> that's what we saw so much here in the united states. i want to bring in erica hill joining us from london at buckingham palace. good morning to you. you just had a chance to listen
to seth's report, his interview with harry. we've seen these record popularity studies and so much is tied back to the young, the wills, the kates, the harrys on the ground. is that the sense you get on the ground? >> anecdotally tells you it seems they're breathing new life into the monarchy and people will point to, too, you'll see who will be figured prominently next to the queen in the coming days and you'll see prince charles and camilla, but useless see prince william and kate, and also prince harry. there is sort of the core of the further of the monarchy. so they are figured more prominently because they'll be coming up from the ranks. new pomg come out from the guard yan and talked about whether or not this country would be better off with or without a royal pfamily. 69% of people said, they think it would be worse off if the monarchy were to go away. obviously, very high approval
for that. and interesting we found when you ask people in the united states, from 1948 through 2011, gallup does a top ten list of people americans most admire. queen elizabeth has not been number one but she's been on that list, i believe, 44 times in that time, beating out margaret thatcher and even jackie kennedy. >> really? that's interesting, erica. i also think it's interesting -- you put them at high level of popularity at a time when in the united kingdom the economy isn't looking that good and yet you still have a very high profile, well liked, well respected royal family. i wonder how that's playing out before you. >> you know what's interesting when you bring up the economy. we talked about this a lot last year with the royal wedding and people want to know, who was paying for what because of the economy, because of costs. and there are been some who have said, should we really be doing this giant celebration and
spending this money when we are facing such issues with the economy. of course, both here in the uk and at home in the u.s. what's interesting, one royal biography put it as these kind of celebrations work best when economies are tough, times are tight, because in his words it provides a tonic for people to -- you give them a reason so celebrate. in some ways they look at this rather extravagant gathering is what people need when times are tough. >> thank you so much for joining us this morning. and a reminder, erica will have all the highlights from the queen's diamond jubilee live from london monday and tuesday on "cbs this morning." up next, the claimed chef david myers dishes about japan, surfing and his favorite dish.
