6:32 pm
because of fox news moderator megyn kelly. >> kelly is biased against me. >> reporter: kelly's only offense, ask trump tough questions. >> you've called women you don't look fat pig, dogs, and disgusting animals. >> reporter: fox is standing with kelly. trump said he will most likely not participate in the fox debate for a campaign that knows turnout is vital to victory, that's the riskiest strategy imaginable. >> pelley: on the democratic side, hillary clinton leads bernie sanders nationally by 12 points, and this is the first time she has been under 50%. we have more now on their battle for iowa from nancy cordes. >> reporter: sanders got a hero's welcome today at a steelworkers union hall in des moines, where his pro-worker message has clearly found some fans. >> you ready for a radical idea? we're going to create an economy
6:33 pm
not just billionaires. >> reporter: union members make up about 10% of iowa's workforce and can provide key homestretch. sanders has locked up support from the u.s. postal workers and national nursings united. clinton is backed by the american federation of teachers and the service employees union. >> you will know that you have a friend in the white house. >> reporter: at a forum monday night, clinton was confronted by a young sanders voter. >> i've heard from quite a few people my age that they think you're dishonest. >> you know, look, i've been around a long time. people have thrown all kinds of things at me. >> reporter: we asked sanders what he thought. do you view secretary clinton as dishonest? >> no. i have known secretary clinton for 25 years. this is a distinguished woman who has worked for many, many years. i like secretary clinton. we have differences of opinion on important issues.
6:34 pm
his supporters today he can only win here in iowa if turnout is better than average. that's an acknowledge. , scott, that many of his fans are younger people who make for less reliable caucusgoers. >> pelley: and worth remembering iowa is just the starting line in a process that's going to go long into the spring. nancy cordes, thanks very much. washington's mayor plans to lift the snow emergency tomorrow evening. for now the city is still moving at half speed with the streets clogged. the same in baltimore, which led to a dangerous situation overnight. here's kris van cleave. >> reporter: this fire in baltimore spread to five row houses when firefighters couldn't get their trucks to the unplowed street. residents had to help drag fire hoses through the snow. >> my mother's house wouldn't have burnt to the ground if there hadn't been snow in the

6:36 pm
an urban environment requires clean-up. that's what we're going to see probably at least over next 48 hours and going into the end of the week. >> reporter: d.c. schools are celt to open tomorrow. other school districts could remain closed through the rest of the week. scott, we heard from the national parks service today that they've removed enough snow off the national mall to fill the washington monument more than 18 times. >> pelley: kris van cleave, thanks very much. today we learned why a texas grand jury investigating planned parenthood indicted two of its critics instead. the anti-abortion activists went undercover to shoot controversial videos of planned parenthood employees. here's jan crawford. >> reporter: the undercover videos were explosive. >> don't low ball it. tell me what you really think. >> reporter: they sparked criminal investigations across the country into whether planned parenthood was illegally selling aborted fetal tissue. but the surprise indictment by a
6:37 pm
undercover activist sandra merritt and david dalieden broke the law when they allegedly used fake california driver's licenses and posed at buyers of fetal parts. dalieden says their undercover techniques were the same as other investigative journalist, a point underscored by constitutional scholars like cornell university's michael dorf. >> this could set a dangerous precedent and chill undercover investigations by legitimate journalists. >> reporter: these are tactics often exposed by activist seeking to expose wrongdoing. just last summer activist won a free speech victory when a federal judge struck down a land banning undercover operations in the dairy industry. lynn winmill discussed "the jungle," when upton sinclair exposed unfair labor practice,
6:38 pm
unniry conditions of meat sanitary plants in the 1900s. >> a lot of these institutions operate in secret. so you need somebody to go under false pretenses because otherwise there's in way that the public will get access to them. >> reporter: it also raises the question of who is a journalist. those are activist as opposed to reporters from a news organization, but now, scott, everyone can post things online and say, this also is journalism. >> pelley: jan crawford tonight. jan, thank you. now we have a cbs news investigation into a charity for wounded veterans. what caught our attention is how the wounded warrior project spends donations as compared to other long-respected charities. for example, the disabled american veterans charitable service trust spends 96% of its

here again is dr. jon lapook. >> that looks fantastic. >> reporter: two years ago 54-year-old vanessa noel, a shoe designer, started having what she called episodes. >> i had chest tightening, but more than the chest tightening, it was radiating up to my bottom jaw. >> reporter: three doctors missed the diagnosis, but four months later while in the middle of getting an ultrasound of her heart, the cause became very clear. >> i was told i had a heart attack, and that i was very lucky girl, that i got there so quickly that if i had left her office, the doctor told me, and did this on the street, i wouldn't have survived. >> heart disease in women is underresearched, underdiagnosed and undertreated. >> reporter: dr. holly andersen is a doctor. >> it's not surprising that once a woman gets heart disease she will do worse and be more likely to die than a man.
6:49 pm
finds 26% of women die in the first year after heart attack, compared to 19% of men. during treatment, complication rates areigher for women. and while chest pain is still the most common symptom for men and women, women are more likely than men to have atypical symptom, such as that teenage, nausea or pain that is not in the chest. in fact, 42% of women with heart attacks experience no chest pain. >> women are harder to diagnose, but even if they are diagnosed correctly, they will be less likely to receive all the guideline-derived medication to treat this disease. >> reporter: diagnosis in women is more challenging because symptoms like fatigue and nausea don't point directly to the heart, but there is also undertreatment after heart attack. less than 20% of women get cardiac rehab, which is considered standard therapy, scott. >> pelley: jon lapook, thank you very much, doctor.
