isolated sprinkle or flurry and a high of 47. we are seeing accidents pop up across the screen and the triangle. the one area of concern we are focused on is on miami boulevard u.s. 07 in durham. this is blocking both lanes of 70. this is miami boulevard and during this morning here at mineral springs road and you can see 70 westbound dog into durham is also experiencing delays. let's take a look at the scene. this is miami boulevard and 70. you can see a couple lanes are blocked and traffic is snarled both directions of 70. take the durham freeway to avoid all of that mess. there is a stilled vehicle on the inside lane of 440 west in raleigh. it is causing some tea lays there. this is i-440 at lassiter mill road. coming up on fox 50rbgs how
player who missed a ma it is friday, january 15th, 2016. welcome back to "cbs this morning. there is more real news ahead, including charlie's sit-down interview with sean penn last night. the actor defends his interview with el chapo. first, here's a look at today's "eye opener" at 8:00. i have regret the entire discussion about this article ignores its purpose. >> you said the trip helped them move in on the drug lord. penn believes those claims are incorrect. mutual nonaggression pact between trump and cruz now officially over.
now he is doing better and probably 405% chance. >> such a shame when friendships go bad. >> robinson's who live a mile from the store are the couple in munford, tennessee, claiming to have the ticket. >> i wondered why they sounded so insecure. >> the academy has long been criticized for its predominantly white membership but thursday's nominations put that diversity into crystal clear focus. >> a federal court ruled this week that wearing unearned military medals is a protective form of free speech. -- said janet jackson. i'm gayle king with norah o'donnell and anthony mason. charlie rose is in california where he interviewed sean penn last night. penn and "rolling stone" this
interview with drug lord joaquin guzman known as el chapo. they have come under heavy criticism for allowing the drug lord to review the article before it was published. >> wenner is standing by the story's approval. he says it's a small price to pay for the interview. charlie asked penn about that controversial decision. >> penn described himself to me as an experienceal journalist and he writes about his experiences and not about things he wasn't in prison for and he has no regrets about how he spent the seven hours with guzman. >> when you get the story that every journalist in the world wants it, there is a lot of green-eyed monsters who will come give you a kiss. >> reporter: those are jealous journalists you're suggesting? >> yes. of course, i know there are people who don't like me out of the gate. >> reporter: you're not without
fair enough. at the same time, you know, when journalists who want to say that i'm not a journalist, well, i want to see the license that says that they are a journalist. >> charlie, does he consider himself a journalist? >> well, i think he thinks of himself, as he said, as an experimental journalist, someone who goes to lots of controversial places. the idea of going into the mountains to meet someone as notorious, someone who has the record, the violence and brutality of el chapo is an extraordinary risk to take on his part, and he had to have some courage to do that. the point is, obviously, he thought it was worthwhile and i think he thought that they had an agreement with el chapo, you know, that -- and because she was with him, the mexican actress, that this was an opportunity for him to do something that few people could do and, on that, he is right.
i'm interested in ul ofall of that and that journey and his castillo. >> you can see more of charlie's interview with sean penn on "60 minutes" here on cbs on sunday. the top seven republican presidential candidates exchanged a lot of tough talk at last night's heated debate. ted cruz accused donald trump of having new york values. trump hit back, questioning cruz's citizenship. marco rubio and chris christie and cruz clashed over their conservative records but all republicans agreed on one thing -- president obama and the democratic candidates are wrong for america. >> bernie sanders and hillary clinton will say, it's those evil rich people. ipts not the evil rich people. it's the evil government. >> our country is being run by incompetent people and, yes, i am angry. >> the obama/clinton economy has left behind the working men and women of this country. >> every person here is better than hillary clinton.
no one is a socialist or under fbi investigation so we are a good group of people. >> she will raise social security taxes. bernie sanders has already said it and she is one or two more poll drops down moving further left than she has already to get to the left of bernie on there. >> we will win every state if bernie sanders is the nominee. that is not even an issue. >> reporter: democratic presidential candidate bernie sanders is with us from his hometown in burlington, vermont. good morning. >> good morning. >> you heard your record attacked the republicans saying they will win every state if you're the nominee. how do you defend yourself? >> i think, number one, if you look at the polls around there, we beat donald trump in the last national poll by 13 percentage points. i think we beat all of the republicans in matchups in new hampshire and iowa. i think the american people, in fact, understand that at a time of massive income and wealth and inequality and the rich is getting richer and everybody is getting poorer, we need
hundreds of balances of dollars in tax breaks to the top two-tenths of % and candidates will stand up for working families and that is what i intend to do. >> and before you get that chance to take on a republican, though, you have to beat hillary clinton in the primaries. >> yeah, i heard about that! >> you released this ad yesterday that the clinton campaign is saying negative, let's play a clip of it. >> there are two democratic visions for regulating wall street. one says it's okay to take millions from big banks and then tell them what to do. my plan, break up the big banks, close the tax loopholes and make them pay their fair share. >> you had promised not to run a negative ad during this campaign. have you broken your promise? >> no. i think anybody who looks at that ad understands it's not a negative ad. it's absolutely truthful. >> hillary clinton says it's negative against her and it attacks president obama too.
what hillary clinton says, but hillary clinton is not right. did you see any picture of hillary clinton in there? did you see any mention of hillary in there? look. you well know, and you guys follow this stuff, for many, many years there has been a division within the democratic party where you have had a whole section of the democratic party that is pro wall street and that gets money from wall street and that work very hard for the dere deregulation of wall street which in my view led to the horrendous crisis when people lost their jobs and homes. i have, throughout my life, stood up to wall street. i think we have got to bring back a lasting resolution for the 21st century. i believe we have to ultimately break up the major financial institutions on wall street whose greed and recklessness is harming america. that is my view. other people within the democratic party who disagree. >> a poll from cbs and the "the new york times" shows you are nearly 30 percentage points ahead of hillary clinton among
but, you know, history shows, setosaerhe young people don't normally turn out to vote on election day. are you confident that you can carry that enthusiasm with you to the polls on election day. >> that is a very sad question and it's something that we are working very hard on. look. when we began this campaign, we were at 3% in the national polls. we are closing the gap with secretary clinton. we are doing very, very well, i think, in new hampshire and we are doing well in iowa. we are doing well in nevada. but, clearly, it is one thing, as we understand to bring out a whole lot of young people to rallies to get them excited. it's another thing to make sure that the people come out on hampshire primary. what i can tell you is we are mounting an extraordinarily, a strong grassroots effort. we have a great group of volunteers, thousands of volunteers in both states. our job is to create a large voter turnout. i think we can do that if we do
>> senator, you've made a lot of promises in this campaign, including a single payer universal health care plan. but you have not said how you would pay for it. you promised to release that plan before february 1st. you've yet to do that. where is it? >> well, we have released most of that plan. that plan is based on legislation that i introduced in 2013 so it's there. it's a long and complicated bill and it's out there. what has happened in the last few years is good news. is that the course of health care inflation has declined and, in fact, let that -- our single pair medical will cost less than we originally thought. here is the bottom line. the bottom line is the u.s., today, is the only major country on earth that doesn't guarantee health care to all people. the question. >> is it going to raise taxes? >> is it going to raise taxes? >> right now, we have medicare a
for seniors paid through by a medicare premium and what people pay. we would have a medicare premium for all people and zero private health insurance. private health insurance premiums. the average middle class family would with see a reduction in their health care costs by many thousands of dollars. >> for the middle class would have to increase taxes on them in order to pay for this plan? >> but they are not going to be paying any private health insurance premiums. they will be paying medicare premiums, just as seniors do today. >> good news is, senator sanders, you still have more time to make your point. this campaign continues, for sure. thank you for taking the time for us this morning. we certainly appreciate that. >> thank you. >> you're welcome. heheissed a field goal that could have kept the vikings postseason alive.
american visitors that cuba is bringing changes after decades of isolation. >> i'm ben tracy in havana, cuba, where a new revelation is under way. this one is about tourists. americans are ready to come to cuba, but is cuba ready for us? that story is coming up on "cbs this morning." don't let me down take you down re aouse, on thaacivpi before you begin an aspirin regimen. go talk to your doctor.
president obama, this weeks, called on congress to lift the embargo on cuba. tourism has increased and u.s. relations has thawed but it's unclear en the people will be able to travel to cuba. ben tracy is in havana, cuba, what a boost of tourists could mean for the island. ben, good morning. >> reporter: good morning from a very wet havana. a lot of has changed between the u.s. and cuba the past year. we have restored diplomatic
reopened and a lot of us had heading south. the streets of havana have always had their own rhythm. it's the flow that has changed now they are teaming with tourism. when cubans look out their windows, the face they say are increasingly americans. >> i think most americans are very interested in coming here. >> reporter: betty and john cohen came with a tour group coordinated by boston's museum of fine arts to see havana's art and architecture. >> we bring back to boston, you guys have to look at this. this has not to be missed. >> the island, the forbidden fruit. >> reporter: we met janet moore who ran the travel company that has been bringing america here for nearly 20 years. >> i don't know what will happen when starbucks and mcdonald's come. >> reporter: are you hearing from americans they want it to
>> i hear that 20 times a day. i want to go to cuba now. >> reporter: cuba is just 90 miles off the florida coast. in 2014, 91,000 americans traveled here. last year, that jped 60% to 150,000. if travel restrictions are eventually lifted, as many as 1.5 million americans are expected to land in cuba each year. is cuba ready for this many tourists? >> no. they are not ready. they are absolutely not ready. if you came to me and said, jan, ne a hotel room tonight, i'd have to say i can't give you one. there is not a hotel room to be had tonight in this city. >> reporter: prices at many hotels have doubled to more than $300 per night. the city is rushing to build enough supply to meet the new demand. there is also a lack of trained tour guides and not nearly enough places to eat. the few private restaurants in the city only recently allowed by the government can be fully booked months in advance.
being allowed to come here is still the biggest obstacle. if all you want to do is see the classic cars, smoke cigars and drink a daiquiri but your pool that is not allowed under u.s. law but coming here is easy on people-to-people trip. expect to meet someone and meet some cubans. people arrive every day on charter flights. tourists empty by the busload in a neighborhood such as this. this group is touring the street art that once transformed the gritty street life and the cubans who once called it home. then the music starts. americans sit quietly at first and then the hands start to move and then the feet. this is what you call cultural e immersion immersion. look at closely.
bike parts and what keeps the cars running in the streets and the same spirit that is needed to solve the biggest problem brought on by cuba's tourist revolution. >> they need the dollars. they need the jobs that tourism will provide, but how do you preserve what makes cuba, cuba? and allow tourism to grow? >> reporter: a rising class of cuban business owners is banking on tourism. i talked to one man who owns a restaurant. he says he is serving 300 people a day and 250 them are americans, and he is booked seven days a week. now u.s. airlines are expected to start flying directly to cuba later this year and that should bring a lot more americans here. >> fascinating. >> it's interesting. i think so many americans want to get there before things change but i bet the cubans want thing to change. >> i want to go. never been. >> beautiful place. >> ben tracy, thank you so much. forget the t-rex.
thinsa gh aat ay it is 8:25. i have your top story. a house fire is under investigation in north raleigh. this happened at a home along cromwell court around 11:30 last newt. fire crews tell wral a woman was home at the time. she got out safely. her husband was not home at the time and the couple's three pets died in the fire. today would have been dr. martin luther king, junior junior's 87th birthday.
