6:30 pm
in. captioning sponsored by cbs this is the "cbs evening news" with scott pelley. >> pelley: david bowie spanned generations. more than 140 million records sold, dozens of movies and broadway plays. always changing, he set trends and then moved on. bowie died yesterday of cancer, and as word spread today, fans gathered in his native london and his adopted home, new york, to remember a man who once called himself a collector of personalities. anthony mason looks back. >> reporter: like the lost astronaut major tom in his 1969 hit "space oddity" -- ground control to major tom -- david bowie was always traveling between worlds.
6:31 pm
put your helmet on his music and image perpetually morphing. changes. from ziggy stardust to the thin white duke, bowie would restlessly reinvent himself. >> i jump from one thing to another a lot. >> flit? >> reporter: he made a rare effort to explain himself on the dick cavett show in 1974. >> i'm a storyteller and a story writer. i decided i preferred to act a lot of the story and perform it myself. >> reporter: even his stage name was an invention. born david jones in britain, he changed his last name to avoid confusion with the monkees davy jones.
6:32 pm
in 1975, "fame," written with john lennon, gave him his first number-one single in the u.s. in the 1980s he topped the charts get. put on your red shoes and dance the blues for bowie it was always about more than just music, as he told charlie rose in 1998. >> i find that the idea of having to say that i'm a musician in any way is an embarrassment to me because i don't really believe that. i've always felt that what i do is i use music for my way of expression. i don't believe i'm very accomplished at it. >> reporter: but his fearlessness made him one of the most influential performers of the rock era. bowie, who kept his cancer a secret, released his latest album, "blackstar," just this past friday on his 69th birthday. look up here i'm in heaven a farewell from an artist who showed us he could be many
6:33 pm
there is a star man waiting in the sky and always be himself. sales of bewe's music have soared in the hours after his death. his new album looks destined to become his tenth number one, and twitter reports some 20,000 tributes a minute were flooding across the internet in the hours after his death. scott? >> pelley: and it would be sir david, but he turned down a knighthood. mexico may send the drug kingpin known as el chapo to the united states. he was captured friday around the same time we learned of an interview he granted to actor sean penn. penn said today he has nothing to hide about his relationship with joaquin guzman, whose nickname is spanish for "shorty." manuel bojorquez has new video of the capture which came six months after guzman escaped from a mexican prison.
6:34 pm
images capture the moment mexican marines stormed a home in sinoaloa where notorious drug kingpin joaquin "el chapo" guzman was hiding. five men with were killed during the shoot-out, but el chapo managed to escape through a set of intricate tunnels. authorities were later tipped off he was in a stolen car and arrested him. mexican officials say it was this "rolling stone" interview that helped lead them to the elusive kingpin. actor sean penn met secretly with el chapo last october in a remote mountain location, a meeting set up by mexican actress kate del castillo, who had apparently been in touch with the drug lord while he was on the run. these images show penn and del castillo arriving at a mention mention -- mexican airport and greeting the men who would ferry the two to guzman. in an interview guzman brags to penn about being the world's
6:35 pm
he tells penn that it's a reality that drugs destroy. "where i grewen there was no other way and there still isn't a way to survive." el chapo had been on the run for six months after escaping from this maximum-security prison through an elaborate set of underground tunnels found just beneath his cell. he's now being held in the same prison, this time surrounded by military tanks. mexican officials are working to extradite him to the u.s., where guzman faces murder and drug trafficking charges in at least six states. juan miguel edmonson is a former special prosecutor for interpol in latin america. is there a chance we'll see el chapo escape again? >> there's more than all the eyes of the world put on him, therefore i don't think so. >> reporter: a mexican official said today the extradition process could take a year or more. here at the prison authorities have not revealed where they are
6:36 pm
moving him from cell to cell frequently to prevent another one of his infamous underground escapes. >> pelley: manuel bojorquez reporting for us tonight. manuel, thanks. well, it's three weeks now until iowa, and as the days grow shorter, the polls grow tighter. republican donald trump has a two-point lead over ted cruz. that is within the poll's margin of error. today trump continued to raise questions about whether cruz, born in canada to an american mother, is eligible to be president. here's major garrett. >> it's wrong to say it is a settled matter because it's absolutely not. it's not a settled matter. that means that, you know, a lot of people think you have to be born here. >> reporter: before a lethargic and relatively small mid-day crowd in new hampshire, donald trump continued planting doubts about ted cruz's citizenship, saying g.o.p. voters will render the final verdict. >> it's one of those little decisions. i'm sure ted is thrilled that
6:37 pm
i mean, i am. i mean, he's got to go and he's got to fix it. >> reporter: cruz has dismissed trump's suggestions. >> i have never beed a breath of air on this planet when i was not a u.s. citizen. i've never been naturalized. it was the process of being born that made me a u.s. citizen. >> reporter: a new poll shows trump with a commanding lead in new hampshire with john kasich, marco rubio and cruz in a virtual tie for second. but trump camp fears a cruz victory in iowa would catapult him ahead in new hampshire. rubio is also looking over his shoulder at chris christie, who is trailing him by just four points in new hampshire. today rubio attacked christie on key conservative issues. >> our next president cannot be someone for common core, who supports gun control, who has personally contributed to planned parenthood. these are things we need to reverse. >> reporter: on "face the nation" christie defended his record. >> marco himself has said i was a conservative reformer in new jersey. i'm not going to spend my time
6:38 pm
>> reporter: christie once said he donated to planned parenthood, something his campaign now denies. rubio today canceled a fund-raiser and returned to d.c. after critics attacked his original plan, raise money and skip -- rather raise money instead of attending a senate classified briefing on north korea. >> pelley: major garrett in the newsroom. mange, thank you. on the democratic side, the polls show hillary clinton and bernie sanders neck and neck in both iowa and new hampshire. nancy cordes has the latest on that. >> now i just have a difference with senator sanders. >> reporter: hillary clinton normally takes aim at her republican rivals, but in waterloo, iowa, today, she focused on bernie sanders and his proposals for new spending. >> there's no way if you do the arithmetic how to pay for what he has proposed without raising taxes. >> reporter: the change in course was no coincidence. >> i'm really going to need your help.
6:39 pm
poll shows sanders coming on fast in iowa and even outperforming clinton in the general election. in a theoretical matchup with donald trump, sanders leads in iowa by 13 points. clinton leads by 8. in matchup with ted cruz, sanders leads by 5 points while clinton trails by 4. >> we have an excellent chance to win here in iowa. >> reporter: sanders told the state's largest newspaper that clinton's new attacks on him show she's "nervous and panicky," but he's doing the exact same thing. >> will she change her mind and join me in making sure that we can significantly raise the benefits for low-income people on social security? >> you know, these polls go up, they go down. >> reporter: on "face the nation" sunday, the former first lady downplayed both the numbers and trump's recent comments about her husband's infidelities in the '90s. >> they can say whatever they
6:40 pm
more power to them. i think it's a dead end, blind alley for them, but let them go. >> reporter: clinton leads in later states like south carolina by up to 40 points, though she enjoyed a similar lead in iowa in the that long ago, scott. >> pelley: nancy core -- cordes on the campaign. nancy, thank you. today a muslim preacher known for his fiery anti-western sermons went on trial. anjem choudary is charged with recruiting for isis. elizabeth palmer has this. >> reporter: on his way into court, britain's best-known radical islamist claimed it was all a setup. >> the only reason i'm standing here today is because i'm a muslim. >> reporter: choudary once praised the 9/11 hijackers and for years has denounced western rights and freedoms. >> down with democracy! >> reporter: after the rise of isis in 2014, choudary sounded like a salesman for life under
6:41 pm
>> everybody has free food, clothing and shelter. close your eyes and imagine a society. you haven't got a house? here's your house. you don't have electricity, here's free electricity. >> reporter: eventually choudary's lectures in person and online got him arrested. on the eve of his trial, he sat down with us to insist he never directly recruited for isis. >> there's no record of me ever saying to go abroad and to live in the islamic state. >> did you have to? just by saying this is a muslim state and it is a place run under sharia law, is it an implicit endorsement? >> no, it isn't, in fact. >> reporter: but the british government disagrees. it believes choudary's campaigning contributed to the stream of hundreds of britains who went to syria to fight. one of them was siddhartha dahr, formerly choudary's close associate. he went to syria in 2014 and is
6:42 pm
man behind the mask in isis' latest execution video. >> people of britain, know that today your citizenship is under us. >> reporter: anjem choudary faces ten years in jail if convicted, but the broader question is whether this british crackdown on recruiting will slow the flow of foreign fighters that isis depends on. >> pelley: liz palmer in the london newsroom tonight. liz, thanks. now in technology, the next generation of cars may be able to avoid most accidents automatically. the federal government is proposing a new technology regulation for carmakers, and kris van cleave has more from the detroit auto show. report the newly proposed regulation will require technology to be standard in all new vehicles sold in the u.s. experts say it could be as revolutionary as seat belts and air bags. once finalized, the rule will call for vehicle-to-vehicle
6:43 pm
phased in over a few years. >> our goal is to see this technology put in place as soon as possible. >> reporter: secretary of transportation anthony fox. >> over the years we've had about 33,000 fatalities a year on our highways. it's a technology that can substitute for human judgement and help us avoid those crashes. we think we can get as much as an 80% reduction. that's a huge change. >> reporter: as this department of transportation animation shows. v-to-v uses technology similar to wifi to link cars near each other on the road, allowing them to share information like speed and direction several times a second. so if the vehicle several cars ahead stops abruptly, your car would know almost instantly and warn you to slow down. it may also be able to talk to infrastructure like stoplights, telling the driver howk until a light changes. v-to-v building on technology like blind spot detection and automatic braking already found in some vehicles.
6:44 pm
do you think this is the type of technology customers will pay for? >> to a certain extent i think they will, but we'll see what the future brings. we're working very hard toward bringing and continuing to have more and more of those features in the vehicle. we'll see what the consumer decides. >> reporter: the auto industry supports the move to v-to-v technology, but there are some unanswered questions, how do you protect cars against hacking and what about all that data now being collected by our ever-smarter cars. >> pelley: kris van cleave in motor city. kris, thank you. new recommendations for when women should get mammograms when the "cbs evening news" continues. so i drink boost to get the nutrition that i'm missing. boost complete nutritional drink has 26 essential vitamins and minerals, including calcium and vitamin d to support strong bones and 10 grams of proteinto help maintain muscle. all with a great taste.

6:47 pm
turning 40. >> between me and my doctor, we've decided that i need to stay with having my yearly screening mammography. that's for my peace of mind. >> reporter: the u.s. preventative services task force says women of average risk should make an individual choice about whether to screen between the ages of 40 and 49 and be screened every other year between 50 and 74. studies suggest screening mammography is about twice as effective at saving lives in women 50 to 59 as in women 40 to 49. still, in that younger age group, about four deaths are prevented for every 10,000 women screened over ten years. some doctors worry about the message these new guidelines may be sending to younger women. dr. freya schnabel is the director of breast surgery at nyu langone. >> we have to remember that women in their 40s and below still get breast cancer. >> >> reporter: in your view, are we overemphasizing now the potential harm, including worry
6:48 pm
>> i think the worry issue is something that particularly, in my opinion, is very troublesome as a reason to avoid mammography. >> reporter: why? >> i think it's patronizing. adult women are capable of understanding that sometimes we all have to do things that we're not crazy about, but there's a long-term benefit. >> reporter: for women 75 and older, there was not enough evidence to make a recommendation, so, scott, the decision will rest on factors like woman's risk and general the et cetera. >> pelley: dr. jon lapook, thank you, jon. and dr. freya schnabel, who you just heard from, will be answering questions on our web page right after this broadcast.
