than "those dolphins are lying." welcome to "cbs this morning." charlie rose is on assignment. we are going to begin with breaking news from europe. a short time ago an air bus a 320 crashed in southern france. the plane belongs to a low cost german carrier. elizabeth palmer is in london with the unfolding story. >> there isn't a lot of detail yet but the european news agencies are reporting that an airbus 320 has crashed in the southern french alps not far from the mediterranean. it is a budget subsidiary of the big german airline. this plane was on its way from barg loana in spain with 142
passengers on board as well as two pilots and four crew. flight radar says contact was lost with the plane about 11:00 local time at 6,800 feet. french police are reported to have flown over the area and they say they can see some debris on the ground. >> elizabeth palmer in london. thank you. we will be monitoring the latest developments and bring you new details as they come in. angelina jolie overnight shared new revelations about her fight against cancer. she discusses why she had a procedure to remove her ovaries and fallopian tubes. she writes i went through what i imagine thousands of women have felt. i told myself to stay calm and be strong and i had no reason to think i wouldn't live to see my children grow up and to meet my grandchildren. >> angelina jolie continues the most important thing is to learn
about the options and choose what is right for you personally. this is a moving personal and powerful piece. what do you make of her decision to share it with all of us? >> she is absolutely heroic. the idea of being transparent and vulnerable and talking about her personal decision to educate others is so powerful. the last time she did it two years ago about her mastectomy thousands of women went for testing. she has a faulty gene called brca 1 meaning her risk is higher than others. she has three family members that died of cancer. so they took out her fallopian tubes and ovaries. it was a same day procedure in and out of the hospital in the same day. now she is without the hormone producng ovaries so menopause
was induced about a decade earlier. >> her mother died of ovarian cancer at age 49. she is 39 years old. she said the effects -- the surgery of the mastectomy was tougher. she said she is in menopause now. >> so the ovary makes estrogen and dozens of other hormones. we can give back some of those to minimize. taking away those hormones effects risk for heart disease, bone disease and clearly hot flashes and other symptoms happen. it's a major change but preventing cancer so she can play with her children and dchildren was paramount in her decision. >> how much will this procedure reduce her risk of getting cancer now? is she clearly home free? >> there is ovarian tissue not just in the ovary.
it is a dramatic reduction as is taking the breasts out dramatic redekz of breast cancer and ovarian cancer but not to zero. she will continue to be followed closely. this was a major step. i just have to applaud her for being so vulnerable and helping thousands of women with her own suffering. >> thanks. this morning the official republican presidential campaign is still a one-man race. texas senator ted cruz became the first to declare on monday. we will hear from senator cruz here in a moment. first nancy cordes has reaction. >> if cruz got an advantage by jumping in first his would-be opponents won't admit it. >> we are pretty close to a decision. kentucky senator rand paul
argued if he runs he can beat hillary clinton as cruz can't. >> ted cruz is a conservative but goes to winnability. >> new jersey governor chris christie down played cruz's influence, too, on his monthly ask the governor radio show. >> ted cruz announced he is running for the nomination. is that a factor in your decision at all? >> no. >> i am running for president of the united states. >> reporter: cruz announced his candacy monday. he said he would end obamacare and abolish the irs replacing it with a flat income tax. later he says the obama white house projected an image of weakness around the world. >> the consistent pattern of the obama foreign policy has been abandoning friends and allies. and coddling and appeasing our enemies. >> reporter: announcing early means more attention but that can cut both ways.
>> this is what i find interesting about ted cruz. he was born in canada. his father fled from the united states from cuba yet ted cruz is against immigration. >> reporter: as republicans jockey for position clinton to rebound from e-mail controversy. >> i am all about new beginnings, a new grand child, another new hair style, a new e-mail account. why not a new relationship with the press? >> reporter: cruz may have been the first to announce but he won't be alone for long. we have gotten signals that rand paul marco rubio and clinton could announce intentions in the next couple of weeks. >> senator ted cruz of texas joins us. are you the most conservative
candidate in the republican field? >> well right now i'm the only announced candidate in the republican field so it's sort of like what my mom would say i'm her only child and she tells me i am her favorite son. >> is that your plan to be the most conservative? >> my plan is to speak the truth. i think millions of americans recognize the path we are on isn't working and they are looking for a change that they want to get back to the free market principles and constitutional liberties the country was built on. >> such an interesting response because your supporters would think ted cruz should come here and say yes i would be most conservative. >> the basic values are common sense conservative values. live within your means. follow the constitution. it's only in washington that those are radical or extreme propositions. most of america you get people
republicans, democrats, independents, libitarians who say that makes common sense. >> you say if you are elected you would repealble care act but since its passing 16 million people have become insured. would you take that away from them? >> those numbers don't tell the picture. the bulk of those numbers are coming from expanded medicaid. a lot of people on medicaid are not getting health care. it is a system already overburdened and more and more people are getting waiting list and not getting health care. 6 million people had their health insurance cancelled because of obamacare. you are not doing someone a favor if you cancel the health insurance they like and force them to buy new health insurance at higher premiums that covers less. i can tell you people are frustrated. five years ago maybe good faith reasonable minds could have differed on whether obamacare could have worked. at this point it is the single
largest job killer in this country. >> can i ask you about news in the headline. we know isis has posted the names of 100 service members. should we have boots on the ground in syria and iraq? >> we need seriousness to destroy isis and we need to do whatever it takes militarily to accomplish that. >> that includes boots on the ground. >> this should be a military question. what i defeat isis. we have boots on the ground with the kurds. america has not been terribly consistent allies to the kurds they have stood with us. isis is using american military equipment that they seized in iraq and the kurds don't have the weaponry. unfortunately, the administration is sending weapons to baghdad.
i think the kurds could be our boots on the ground and use overwhelming air power. >> let me ask you about syrian president bashar al assad is it more important to remove him or isis? >> i think isis is a far bigger threat. >> leave assad in power and take on isis first? >> the touch stone for our foreign policy should be vital u.s. national security interests. assad is a monster. he is murdering his own people. i don't believe he poses a clear and present danger to america. >> assad does not? >> assad does not. >> you should be elected for president because? >> because i will tell the truth and do what i said i will do. >> we shall see. senator cruz thank you very much. >> thank you very much sir. u.s. officials say the counter terrorism strategy in
yemen has all but collapsed. operations are being scaled back amid growing violence. officials fear instability will allow extremist groups to expand. u.s. with drew the last of military personnel from yemen over the weekend. we expect more testimony from a terrorism expert. yesterday prosecutors argued that dzhokhar tsarnaev was heavily influenced by al qaeda literature and lectures and presented text messages from his phone after he was named a suspect. a friend asks you saw the news? he responded yeah broi id. friend said for real? i saw the news better not text me, my friend. lol. investigation into the alleged sexual assault at the university of virginia is suspended. an article detailed a gang rape now police say there is no
evidence to support the facts. >> reporter: good morning. investigators spent hundreds of hours and interviewed more than 70 people but in the end they said they couldn't corroborate details that a young woman told "rolling stone." >> we have no basis to conclude that anything happened at that fraternity house. >> reporter: police chief said detectives found no evidence of the brutal gang rape that jackie said occurred in september 2012. there was no proof that the fraternity had a party that night or the male student she said led the attack even existed. police said the investigation was limited because she wouldn't cooperate. >> that doesn't mean that something terrible didn't happen to jackie. we are just not able to gather sufficient facts to conclude what that something may have been.
>> reporter: she had gone to police before but told them a completely different story. in the spring of 2014 she reported she was attacked by four men on the street. one of them struck her with the bottle but police say it didn't appear consistent. at the time she also spoke of a report from 2012. investigators said they also couldn't verify claims that friends including alex stock discouraged her from reporting the attack. >> today does give me some closure. i feel a sense of relief. >> reporter: he says the only person who knows what happened is jackie. he hopes she will still come forward. >> if you know in your heart there is truth to the story then i urge you to cooperate with the police and come to them. >> reporter: her attorney had no comment. "rolling stone" has launched its
own internal audit into the article and it is said to be released early next month. this morning critics call james cordenhilarious, witty and inspired. omar villafranca shows the new style of entertainment. >> reporter: the opening of the curtains kicked off a new era. >> however shocked you are that i am doing this job you will never be as shocked as i am. >> reporter: he ditched the desk, a late night staple to get up close and personal with his first guests. he asked about her rumored marriage to ashton kutcher. there were surprise guests
including jay leno who helped prepare for the show. bragging or rushing? >> you don't look like a talk show host. >> pull it together and take the applause. >> reporter: from a fully stocked bar to pretaped sketches he showed he is not afraid to mix it up in the late late time slot and plans to take guests along for the ride. they teamed up for a sketch reenacting scenes from hank's movie. >> no crying in baseball. don't cry. >> reporter: at 36 corden is the youngest late night host on a major network. >> the worst thing that would happen is that it becomes predictable. >> reporter: and is ready to send late night audiences to bed on a high note.

that will help investigators determine what may have happened and where to find the actual black boxes. the fact that they have sighted the wreckage is a good indication that they are close to getting that. >> what can you tell us about the region where the plane went down? >> it is rugged. it is about an hour north of marseille marseille. it can take them a good day and a half to get to it. that's the key to it. >> will the age of the airplane matter? if it is an older airplane or younger one? >> age doesn't matter maintenance matters. how the airline was maintained. they will be checking safety records. what were the items written up and were they addressed? all those things will be looked at. >> the area where the plane was traveling difficult to navigate for aircraft? >> not at all.

investigators told the court on march 9 he left his apartment unlocked and put five suitcases in his vehicle and drove east. when he reached detectives say he shut off the phone that was being secretly tracked by california and federal authorities. an investigator with the orleans parish district attorney's office testified that authorities were able to find durst at his new orleans hotel after he called his coal phone twice from the marriott. that led to his arrest. what was inside that hotel room is proof investigators say he intended to skip town. a .38 caliber revolver and five ounces of marijuana were seized along with a fake texas i.d. card, a map of the region including new orleans, florida and cuba a brand new cell phone yet to be activated and nearly $45,000 in cash.

what do you think the chances are he will be tried on weapons charges in louisiana? >> they did not obtain the search warrant until after midnight. the question is did durst give consent? if he consented and allowed the prosecutor in the very next day after he called his attorney. i can't predict in this case. that's why i think people are following it. you never know what is going to happen in this. >> thanks. we thank you. the dallas cowboys are defending their new defensive. why some accuse the organization of sending the wrong message for signing a man found guilty of assaulting his girlfriend. if you are heading off to work and taking the kids to school you don't have to miss the rest of this broadcast. we ask you to set your dvr so you can watch "cbs this morning" anytime you feel like it. we'll be right back. ghirardelli of san francisco. we carefully craft the finest chocolate so you can savor life's sweetest

barcelona, spain to dusseldorf germany. >> the details are trickling in. the plane was an airbus 320 which is one of the workhorses of the range. it crashed in the southern french alps. it was on its way from spain to germany with 142 passengers on board, two pilots, as well, and four crew. french president francois hollande gave a press conference shortly after saying he didn't expect there would be survivors. the plane was almost 25 years old. it belonged to german wings, a budget subsidiary of the main german airline which has an excellent safety record. the plane did send a distress call just before 6:00 eastern time but didn't include any information about what was going

and displeasures frmpt me it is all about myself. i want to perform at a high level. >> how do you feel your game has been this year? >> i had to take off last week because of a death of a friend. i'm looking forward to the challenges. i'm looking forward to getting back to practice and focusing on competing at the high level at a beautiful golf course. >> i hear the secret is a burrito. you eat a burrito, too? >> sometimes. >> what is the secret of the brute burrito? >> in 2012 my wife wasn't there. i can eat the same thing every day. i eat a burrito every day and sometimes two burritos. and then in '13 she comes with caleb and says we can't eat the same thing every day.
in '14 she goes fine. and then i think it is the burritos. >> what's in it? >> i'm very plain. chicken, black beans, rice cheese and that's it. >> it is kind of a perfect combination. >> tell us how you got hooked on this game. did you see somebody playing it? did your parents play it? what did you see about this game? >> my parents, my mom, she said let's go take her to summer camp and see how she likes this. she took me there to this little golf course. >> the first time you held a club did you like it right away? >> it was like softer than i thought. it was like am i going to be reaching a stick or something? so i fell in love with it and i saw everyone. i made a lot of friends that day. and i said to myself if this is how it is going to be if i play
golf then why not? so i'm still playing until now. >> that's how you got involved sort of when you saw -- tell us how you got involved with the organization that you are working on together. >> so we heard about this for over a year so it started in '13 and talked about this and announced this event. so it came on last year during the masters, the day before the start. watching this on tv watching these kids. it was inspiring. we are supposed to be inspiring the kids but the kids are inspiring me. i am looking at the son who is 2 years old and my wife. i went out there and started shaking hands and talking to kids and inspired me. it made me think of a kid again where i was so focused on just having fun and playing golf instead of the drive of a job. >> i think this is so important because if you look at the numbers golf participation among milineals that age is way down like people don't have the time
to play golf anymore. golf is sort of a dying sport in some ways. >> if you look at it i see that there is a lot of factors involved. one of the factors is so many video games and people are not getting outside of the house. a lot of people are having jobs and working nonstop to support families. so for me my dad didn't let me have video games. my dad wanted to play. my mom didn't play but it was all about family going outside and spending time together. i think that is what this organization is doing now is bringing the family back to the game of golf and enjoying it. that is what augusta has done and organizations have done. >> i love that. i think that is so true. >> you met the former secretary of state condoleeza rice. she is one of the three female members of augusta. you want to play with her, right? why would you want to play with her? not that it is bad. >> she is a very good role model. she is not a bad golfer. and i think it would be like she
is very nice and supportive of junior golfers. that's just like right now golf is really just like so many video games everyone is looking at their phone. >> who are your golfer idols? >> bubba. >> and martin. >> tiger woods, can we talk about him. do you think he is coming? >> if i had to bet i would say yes. >> we are making you bet. >> i would say yes because it's the greatest championship we have all year. if he is not injured how would he miss it? i think he is taking time off and getting excited about it. i take two weeks off before the masters. this year i had to take off three. i want to get excited about it. i want to be like her and get there and get excited about it and fight for that green jacket
again. >> i remember you were waiting for caleb to come and so psyched in the green room. now you have had a little girl, too. the name is? >> dakota. >> now you have wife. >> a, b, c, d. >> e is coming up next. just throwing it out there. >> we will be watching and wish you the best. you going back for round two? >> yes. >> all right. >> and your sister too. >> yes. >> cheering you guys on. >> tradition unlike any other. bubba watson and kelly xu. cbs sports coverage of the masters begins saturday april 11. you meet the broadway actress whose dressing room is a cage. >> you are not the only one having your morning coffee right now. this is toby one of the stars

>> james corden we are cheering you on. we invite you to watch tonight here on cbs. tonight his guests include patricia arquette and the group modest mouse. w.c. fields famously said never work with children and animals. jamie wax chose us how broadway is making room for a very new star. >> what do you do when you are creating the stage version of a best selling novel where a central relationship is between a boy and his pet rat? you call a top animal trainer, of course. >> they have a rat problem down at the theater, but not the kind that requires an exterminator. this rat problem is different. >> toby the rat is a diva a four legged actress with a pension for having things her own way. >> toby is the rodent star of
the hit broadway play the curious incident of the dog in the nighttime. toby plays the pet rat to an autistic boy. alex sharp is christopher. >> special relationship between yourself and toby? >> starting to love each other a little bit more. >> few critters in the mova all the time whether a dog like marly, babe the pig or willie the orca. too many to count. on broadway musical "annie" is probably the most famous. but on the stage unlike in films there are no retakes and animals have one shot a night to get it right. >> so imagine training to keep composure amid chaos in a show
like you can't take it with you. in this case kitten training involves exposing to loud sounds and tracing them about until they are used to almost anything. the regimen is designed by animal trainer who also happens to train toby the rat. >> does toby ever have a bad day where she is moody and doesn't want to come out? >> yes. >> what do you do? the girl scout cookie. >> to get toby ready for performance takes her on back stage tours to help her get acclimated. >> i know you go running around the room. >> she is working on finding a suitable under study. >> would you say rats are the biggest challenge of your career? >> the biggest challenge was overcoming my fear of rats. now it is so exciting because i am not afraid of them anymore.
>> she says she really understands rats. you might call her a rat whisperer. >> how much repetition does that relationship take? >> less about rats and more about listening to the animal and not pushing them too far like knowing when to challenge them and knowing when to pull back. >> so toby spends most of her stage time in a cage. her big moment comes in act two when the cage is opened. it says she does the trick eight times out of ten. when our cameras were rolling toby decided a kiss was not in the cards. >> it's a live animal. you can't say this is your cue. they don't care. >> that unpredictability of abilityability of animal on stage. >> because they are completely in the moment. there is nothing about them.
that's what we strive for. >> and sometimes it takes a rat to help you get there. >> i knew it wasn't about the art. >> despite the search for worthy under study toby has done every performance of the show. it's very powerful. a lot of brilliant things in there about autism. >> toby is very cute. >> i understand. it's early for a rat. >> thank you. >> you are watching "cbs this morning."
