8:04 am
party go beyond politicians. 62 national security experts signed a scathing open letter opposing trump. the letter calls trump's vision of american power an influence, quote, wildly inconsistentent and unmoored in principle and he swings from isolationism to military adventurism to within the space of one sentence. fran townsend is one who wrote the letter and former security adviser to president george w. bush. she joins us this morning. >> good morning. >> why are you writing this now? why didn't you write this six months ago or a year ago when donald trump first began this campaign? >> you know, charlie, i can't speak for the other significant take torres on the letter. you wanted the political process to play out some. and, frankly, you know, having taught my sons to be polite and to listen to the views of others, i didn't expect that
8:05 am
trump would resonate with so many people. look. i understand people's anger and frustration. my children don't feel like they have the same opportunity to better themselves than i did when i was growing up. and so there is a very real sense of frustration. but it doesn't justify some of the sort of incendiary rhetoric that trump engages in and, frankly, the bullying. >> the bottom line you say you cannot support him for president because he would be dangerous in the white house. >> that's right. look. middle east we disagree with them often on many topics but we need them in the war on terror against enemies like isis and al e ian ian peninsula. we alienate the people we need to protect the citizens of the united states. >> donald trump said that months ago. he said it and he was asked about it on debate stage. debates.
8:06 am
candidates have been able to convince those voting that that is dangerous. what difference is a letter going to make? >> well, look. it may not make any difference but, you know, i really do think that people with the background and expertise who have actually -- you know, donald trump hasn't ever had the experience in terms of having to get something done in terms of foreign policy. the people who signed this letter have and they do understand what it takes. this is not a real estate deal. and so i do think that his rhetoric and this wild sort of pillared post sort of foreign policy of his is dangerous to the american people. >> okay, fran, specifically, he says the enemy is cutting off the heads of christians and drowning them in cages and, yet, we are too politically correct to respond in kind. donald trump says torture works. >> well, look. if he is suggesting that we ought to be beheading people, i don't think there is anybody, republican or democrat, who would support such a thing.
8:07 am
and i don't -- this, i do not understand. i don't -- and i don't believe that the american people would support a policy of beheading because that is what our enemies are doing. >> fran, there is a fear, that would, listen, he is saying things that would sort of get him nominated, get him voted in by the public and that he doesn't necessarily mean these things and he could back off of them. do you give any credit to that theory? >> soledad, i'm a great believer the presidents go through a maturing process and the primary to get the nomination is a hyperpolitical one. but what you want to hear are real ideas. i understand that this is the political season. so do our allies around the world. but you also expect there is an exchange of ideas and debate on the substance as opposed to what has happened which is name calling and it's just not helpful. >> are you suggesting it goes beyond in contrast to anybody who has ever run for president? >> that's right, charlie.
8:08 am
donald trump up to now, up to soledad's point, up to now, he has sort of shown himself not to temperament. perhaps. i hope it does but we haven't seen any evidence of that yet. >> thank you.

8:14 am
inventory and high demand but that doesn't mean you can relax. if you're looking to sell, cbs news business analyst jill schlesinger is here this morning. how was last year and this year looking if you're thinking about selling your home? >> last several years good recovery. this pretty much tracks with the recovery in the jobs market. people feel more confident and we also know that lending standards a little bit easier. it's still tough to get a mortgage but it is easier. we know that people have more confidence in buying a home when they feel more secure economically. >> lots of good news? >> yes. that said, there is a bit of a problem right now which is we have got low inventory. just not a lot of houses on the market. and that pushes prices up. great if you're a seller, but not so good if you're a buyer. >> when you hear maybe i should sell my house but you say first thing to think about are the tax implications. >> right. a lot of people may have owned their homes for decade and they sell their homes and don't realize, oh, no! i have a big capital gains tax due.
8:15 am
you're lucky if you do, obviously. but check that out. i also want to be very clear. a lot of people are thinking about downsizing. >> but if you have a -- >> actually not. you have to pay your capital gains if you've lived in that house two of the last five years. so you can't push it forward unless it's a rental property so you have to pay the capital gains tax. the most important thing also to recognize if you're looking to downsize, you've got that capital gain. you may not actually see any real savings by downsizing. i think a lot of people fall into a trap i want to go to a place with nice amenities but actually, it's not that so cheap to do so. >> how do you choose a real estate agent? >> you got to get a lot of people in the house. this is very important. most people get a referral. it's a friend, right? no. you want to get at least three people to come in. they are going to do a competitive market analysis. what do you want to know? you want to know does this person have experience in your neighborhood and your price range? does this person have a digital plan for helping to sell your
8:16 am
and what kind of social media presence does this person have? because you know what? you want to attract first-time home buyers and a lot of them are looking social as a way to look at a home. i think it's smart. i think you have to be very one for you. >> how do you know what to price your home at? >> you're going to rely on the realtor but if you want to do a little intelligent work beforehand you go online and you look at the competitive market and see what else is out there in your neighborhood. now, you don't want to fool yourself, okay? this is so important. because how you price this house may actually lead to the success of selling. realtors tell me that if the price is too high, you spook investors and you spook those would-be buyers and they get very anxious. they don't come back. if you have not sold that house or gotten a bite in, say, three to four weeks, you may want to consider dropping the price. >> or switching agents? >> i don't know about switching agents.
8:17 am
i think a lot of people hire realtors but then they don't take their advice and let their own emotions get in the way. what you think is charming your realtor may say it's not charming, it's a dump! listen to that person and be careful and price accordingly. >> thanks, jill. >> thank you. new york's newest landmark is facing criticism before it even opens. michelle miller is at the world trade center. >> reporter: this mighty creating massive controversy. coming up on "cbs this morning," why some critics call this 9/11 monument a symbol. you should be able to get approved to buy it. announcer: this portion of "cbs this morning" sponsored by quicken loans. jane likes to mix things up. that' s why she loves new light & fit greek non-fat yogurt mousse.

"cbs this morning" became the first television program to broadcast live from the top of one world trade center back in may. it was fun, wasn't it, charlie? >> great day. >> now take a look down below and just hours, the next big step in moving the halllowed ground forward is designed to get commuters moving. the new transportation hub is already facing some backlash. one former official in charge of the project calls it a symbol of success. a "the new york times" critic describes it as a boondoggle. michelle miller is there and outside this massive structure that is just across from the 9/11 memorial in lower manhattan. what say you, michelle? good morning. >> reporter: good morning.
8:22 am
standing in was just an empty pit. and in the years since the 9/11 attacks have been a painful and slow rebuilding process. the latest structure to go up, that train station behind me has been both a feat in engineering and a lesson in expectations. it's called oculus. 15,000 tons of steel reaching more than 25 stories tall. famed architect santiago designed it to design a bird rising and it will hub seven railway lines and official estimate 250,000 commuters every day. what first struck you about this design? >> i really like the interior space the best, actually. >> reporter: paul goldberger is a contributing architecture critic for "vanity fair. >> it should be building buildings for people. it's noise to arrive in a city
8:23 am
i think those great moments are sort of like the exclamation point in the city. >> reporter: as much as places like this help downtown war back to life, it's not without its controversy. this structure is billions over budget and at least five years behind schedule. when the hub's design was first unveiled in 2004, officials estimated it would cost around $2 billion. but after rush design changes, water leaks, and superstorm sandy in 2012, the finished product will cost almost twice as much, coming in at $3.9 billion. the hub's governing body, the port authority of new york and called the project challenging but added it will serve a valid transportation need for the region while becoming a very important landmark. >> it was a very, very ambitious, difficult design. yes, it cost a lot. yes, probably it should have cost somewhat less.
8:24 am
innovative architecture is forever. >> reporter: officials are hopeful this landmark will also prove to be an economic engine. within these public atriums is potential 2,000 feet of potential real estate space. >> this was a public mall before 9/11 and in fact, a public shopping center. >> reporter: is that a feat, in and of itself, that this is finished? >> i think it's an extraordinary feat. you feel the life of the city has come back to this 16 acres again in a way it hadn't been for a long time. >> reporter: this hub is only partially opening today. several more corridors will be opening in later weeks. officials here didn't want a huge unveiling. although the commuter paper has it as fronts page news, there will be a very small ribbon cutting later this afternoon. soledad? >> it's beautiful, i think. >> beautiful and like it inside

should an off-the-record conversation with "the times" be punished published? >> a possible breakthrough in fight against childhood obesity could be worth dancing about. how video games can get kid off the couch. time to show you some of the morning's headlines from around the globe. the kalamazoo gazette update on the 14-year-old girl shot in the head in the uber mission's rampage. she say she opened her eyes for the first time and recognized her parents. that is according to a gofundme page. kopf was diagnosed as dead before she squeezed her mother's hands. the boeing original 727 makes its final flight.

8:33 am
always appropriate. "the new york times" says learnig a new sport as a mid-life adult may be good for your brain. studies have shown picking up a new physical skill like snowboarding or juggling strengthens a part of the brain control. familiar activities like practicing crosswords are or training for marathons did not produce the same benefit. this presidential campaign is historic on many levels. the last month alone provided memorable headlines for papers like "the new york times." the newspaper itself became part of the story. on friday, "the times" published a front page article will foreign workers at trump's palm beach club. trump responded with a warning. >> we will open up the libel laws when "the new york times" writes a piece that is disgrace or "the washington post" is there for other reasons writes a hit piece, we can sue them and

chance of winning. >> buzzfeed on monday broke the story of off-the-record meeting between trump and "the times" editorial board. at issue whether that conversation undermined trump's standing on his defining mission. immigration. trump's rivals are demanding he allow "the times" to release the audio of the meeting. we are pleased to have an editor of "the new york times" here. >> i thought you were going to ask me about juggle. >> or "the times" crossword puzzle. >> what exactly happened here? editorial board meeting. you're not a part of that board but you were there. >> i usually don't go and i asked to go this time and i asked to go frankly, because i had not seen donald trump in 20 years. and i thought it would be interesting to see him. so andy rosenthal and his good graces, let me go. it's -- the reason be, you know, for the record why these are
8:35 am
in and pitch "the times" to endorse them. conversations. by the way, this is the only one i've ever been to. and the reason i think this one leaked out, which, to be frank, is unfortunate, because off-the-record conversations -- >> we are assuming it came from somebody at "the times"? >> i have no idea, to be honest. there were 30 people in the room, including donald trump's people. it got talked about in the newsroom. that is probably not a good thing. i may have even talked about it, to be frank. that probably not a good thing. on the other hand, i think it's much to do about nothing. i think that when 30 people sit in a room and talk to donald trump, who is a very vocal guy, and it ends up -- details of it end up leaking out -- >> yeah, but the point is, was it reported that he said on
8:36 am
issues of building of the wall, did he actually say -- i'm not serious about that -- just saying that? >> i'm going to pass on what was said in the room because i'm going to honor -- >> that is the point. >> i know, but i'm going to honor the of-the-record that the editorial board put in place. >> but, dean, it wasn't entirely off-the-record. >> right. >> i mean, i wonder whether "the new york times" made a mistake because it wasn't entirely off the record. he said something about terror flaws and then went back and said can we put this on the record and that got put on the record. according to your own public editor -- >> yeah. he asked that some things be put on the record. trump did. so he opened the door. he said i'm happy to talk about some things on the record and we want it to be off the record. >> to be clear, if donald trump were to say today to put the whole thing on the record, would "the new york times" comply? >> that would be andy rosenthal's call. >> would he report it? do you think a good idea? clearly this is something that everybody is trying to figure out what exactly he said and if
8:37 am
>> i would support what andy says today. >> a little bit of a dodge? >> a little bit of a dodge. to be frank, even though i was present and i agreed to the circumstances, it wasn't my meeting. if i it hod it over again, by the way, i probably shouldn't go to meetings like that. >> no. >> i went to this one, to be frank, because i was a journalist andive dying to hear what he said. >> i don't understand why you don't call him up and say i'd like to sit down with you. you're the editor of "the new york times" and talk about your candidacy. you don't need an editorial board meeting to do that. >> our reporters do that. he is not shy about talking. >> you said you wanted to go to candidate. >> but i wanted to go to the meeting to see the show. i'm a journalist. i wanted to go to the meeting to see the show. i wanted to go to the meeting to see what donald trump looked like in front of the editorial board of "the new york times," which he has a love/hate relationship with. on the one hand, he is a new york figure and like a lot of new york figures, he trashes "the new york times" in public.
8:38 am
"the new york times" in private. i wanted to see that show. that is a different show than being on the phone with him. and i couldn't resist. >> can we talk about the business of "the new york times" and the future of the newspaper, its financial solvency? what has to be done to transform "the times" for the tutor? >> i actually think -- i think this is a large issue. and a lot has been done. i think "the new york times" -- "the new york times" making it to the future, which i'm convinced it will, is one of the most important stories in american journalism. "the new york times" is making a very powerful bet, and most other news organizations have not made the bet, and the bet goes like this -- we will make it to the future as a high-quality journalistic institution without compromise, without slipping into gossip. so that is -- this is an interesting, i think, historical bet, and what will it take to do
8:39 am
it will take, first, sticking to our guns. we will cover big ambitious stories in big ambitious ways and we have already embraced new technology and new ways to tell stories, and do them consistent with the values of "the new york times." >> i know one of the investments that you're making is virtual reality story telling. tell us a little bit more about as they were showing me this this morning that on -- you click on these stories and essentially see 360. >> yeah. >> you can see that. this is terrific stuff, i think. virtual reality is happening. >> yeah. this is it. what is the feedback? >> 500,000 have downloaded our virtual reality app and more than a million people have looked at virtual journalist. it's a great way to tell stories. >> what are we looking here? this is the border? >> you are looking at a film that was made in conjunction with a magazine piece in which a border patrol guard was accused
8:40 am
other side of the fence. and it's just a very powerful story. but what virtual reality brings -- >> like you're there. >> i'm going to say, this is a very good demonstration. knowing these things screw up! >> the border patrol agent, who has been charged with a crime, his claim was that -- was that the kid threw a rock over the fence. if you look at the fence in virtual reality and you see how high it is and you see the openings in it, the story is unbelievable. >> great. >> really brings you there and knowing where you are and knowing the distance and things like that. >> one of the most powerful examples of virtual reality was the one where we set the virtual reality team, we sent them, i can't remember, the iowa caucuses or the primary and you were in the donald trump rally. for the first time, i sat there and said, no wonder he thinks he can win. it was like -- >> very powerful.
8:41 am
>> so nice to see you. thanks for talking to us and thanks for the demonstration. ahead another kind of video. can video games help in the fight against childhood obesity? >> i'm jamie wax. we know kids love games like these.

8:46 am
ly get in shape. you own it >> reporter: jerry is collecting points for accurate steps but researchers are collecting more vital information. it's part of a study to see whether video games can actually help him lose weight. jerry, how did you feel when your mom told you about this study? >> i was very excited. >> reporter: researchers purchased x-boxes and then asked jerry and other kids like him to play for one hour, three nights a week. after six months, they will measure his weight, blood pressure and cholesterol. for support, kid have to play with a family member. jerry chose his mom. do you worry about jerry's health? >> yes, i do. not only do i worry about his health, i wore about mine. >> i think parents should take a moment to ask their children, what do you get excited about? and if it seems the child is interested in video games, then give one of these active video games a try. >> reporter: dr. amanda diano developed the study at this
8:47 am
>> i don't think we should ever replace outdoor activity with these indoor options. but we should also recognize that we have got to provide alternatives for kids, especially during that after-school time when many of them may be alone. >> reporter: that's when kids are spending more time in front of a screen. more than 60% of kids between 8 and 18 years old play video games for over an hour every day! the government recommends that young people get an hour of daily physical activity. et, only 27% meet that goal. what makes obesity, particularly problematic for children? >> well, the problem is that when you become obese as a child you set yourself up for the rest of your life. >> reporter: dr. diane hess is a pediatrician, specializing in childhood obesity. >> what i see in my practice is that my patients are extremely sedentary. i try to be so creative to figure out how can i get you to move? >> reporter: two years ago, pennington researchers conducted their first game experiment with
8:48 am
ages of 14 and 18 years old. they found the participants increased bone density and lost body fat and improved their self-confidence. >> the most important thing is self-esteem. i think the fact they completed it and felt good about themseles i think is best benefit of all. >> reporter: in this second study, funded by the american heart association, kids will play at home, but check in with coaches like these every week. >> i love to change how children view physical activity or healthy diets and working out shouldn't be a burden or a challenge for people. it should be part of people's daily lives. >> reporter: for jerry, that just means more dancing. do you feel like this has changed your life? >> yes. it's really helping me because i'm starting to lose weight and i'm also having fun with losing weight. i try to keep up with my mom and have a good time. i just keep moving. >> reporter: for the second study, researchers will check in
8:49 am
to make sure they are still moving and still losing weight. i'm going to challenge angel here to dance revolution but for my own embarrassment level, the revolution will not be televised. norah? >> oh, come on! we want to see it! i love to dance. moving. i dance with my kids. >> i think games and technology be able to initiate or good conduct is good. morning."
