7:03 am
presented by toyota, let's go places. welcome to cbs this morning. we're going to begin with news affecting all of us at this broadcast and this network. cbs news has suspended our cohost charlie rose over allegations of sexual misconduct. >> the washington post as you've heard published claim from eight women who all worked or wanted to work for his pbs program and they describe rose making unwanted sexual advances in the 1990s through 2011. bianna is here with us with charlie's response to them. >> this one does reach close to home. we've been able to reach out to one of the accusers but confirms that the reporting is accurate. some say he groped them or po
7:04 am
paint a picture of a respected figure abusing his position. >> i think that you can't understate, you know, the level of influence and power that a man like charlie rose has. >> reporter: washington post reporter amy britain spent weeks reaching out to former employees and job seekers. several described rose putting his hand on their legs, sometimes their upper thigh. one said he groped her breasts as she drove him in a car. two women said he walked naked in front of them after taking a shower. >> some critics mite say why were they in the position to see him naked? but the thing about charlie rose is that he would commonly require his employees to come over to his private homes. >> reporter: he allegedly invited one woman to his home on long island while considering her for a job. she described crying the entire time as he reached down her pants. rose tweeted a statement yesterday evening saying i deeply apologize for my inappropriate behavior.
7:05 am
i have behaved insensitivity at times and i accept responsibility for that though i do not believe all of these allegations are accurate. rose explained, i always felt that i was pursuing shared feelings even though i now realize i was mistaken. >> this is the cbs news night watch. >> good morning. >> reporter: during a long career in journalism rose earned multiple emmys and a peabody award. but it's his signature interview program that made him a household name. in 2014 he was one of time magazine's 100 most influential people in the world. >> he has such power over the show. he owns the show. there is no human resources department in the charlie rose show. many of these women said that even if they wanted to file an official complaint they wouldn't even know who to go to. >> reporter: one of the accusers said in a facebook post that the work environment at the
7:06 am
of misconduct from unhealthy boundaries to outright physical abuse. she's one of two women who told the washington post they reported rose's behavior to the show's executive producer. she claims vega would shrug and just say that's just charlie being charlie. in a statement to the post, vega wrote, i should have stood up for them. i failed. it is crushing. i deeply regret not helping them. >> the charlie rose program airs on pbs and then reairs on bloomberg. both networks have suspended the program. charlie rose has cohosted this broadcast since its debut in 2012. he's also a contributing correspondent to 60 minutes. in a statement cbs news says he's suspended immediately while we look into the matter. these allegations are extremely disturbing and we take them very seriously. the washington post reporter told us more than a dozen other women have reached out wanting to speak or share their
7:07 am
since this article appeared yesterday and nora, as tough as this story is, it's important that we cover it the same way we covered the other ones. >> well said. thank you and -- >> i know you and i have talked a lot about this. >> we have. >> and it takes a lot of courage for these women to come forward and i think that they should continue to do something. >> we hope they will continue to speak up. >> i also want to say this, that this is a moment that demands a frank and honest assessment about where we stand and more generally the safety of women. let me be very clear. there is no excuse for this alleged behavior. it is systematic and pervasive and i've been doing a lot of listening and i'm going to continue to do that. this i know is true. women cannot achieve equality in the work place or in society until there is a reckoning and a taking of responsibility. i'm really proud to work at cbs news. there are so many
7:08 am
show. all of you here. this will be investigated. this has to end. this behavior is wrong. period. >> i certainly echo that and i -- i have to say, nora, i really am still reeling. i got an hour and 42 minutes of sleep last night, both my son and my daughter called me. oprah called me and said, are you okay? i am not okay. after reading that article in the post, it was deeply disturbing, troubling and painful for me to read. that said i think we have to make this matter to women. the women that have spoken up, the women who have not spoken up because they're afraid. i home hoping now they will take the step to speak up too. this becomes a moment of truth. i've enjoyed a friendship and a partnership with charlie for the past five years. i've held him in such high regard and i'm really struggling because how do you -- what do you say when someone that you deeply care about
7:09 am
how do you wrap your brain around that? i'm really grappling with that. that said, charlie does not get a pass here. he doesn't get a pass from anyone in this room. we are all deeply affected. we have all rocked by this. and i -- i want to echo what nora said. i really applaud the women that speak up despite the friendship. he doesn't get a pass because i can't stop thinking about the anguish of these women, what happened to their dignity, what happened to their bodies, what happened maybe to even their careers. i can't stop thinking about that and the pain that they're going through. i also find that it's -- you can hold two ideas in your head at the same time. you can grapple with things and i -- to be very honest with you, i'm still trying to process all of this. i'm still trying to sort it out because this is not the man i know, but i'm also clearly on the side of the women who have been very hurt and very damaged by this. and i'm going to, you know, i haven't spoken to him. have you spoken to
7:10 am
i haven't spoken to him. i bend inteintend to speak to h certainly later today but i'm very sorry and i'm very glad they have spoken up. >> well said. we are going to continue to do our reporting on this story and other allegations that have come forward. >> can i just say this? we have a great team and we are all committed to bringing you the news even when it affects us so deeply. none of us ever thought that we'd be sitting at this table in particular telling this story, but here we are, but we will continue to report the news as we always have. >> in our next hour five highly accomplished women talk about their sexual harassment stories and how to help other women expose their abusers. that is ahead here on cbs this morning. we are also learning that the lodngest serving member is facing news of sexual harassment. john conyers paid a woman more than $27,000 from his office budget in 2015 to settle a
7:11 am
fired her because she did not succumb to his sexual advances. other former stafferers allege the former judiciary chairman made repeated requests for sexual favors. conyers office did not respond to a request for comment about this. a second woman accuses al franken of sexual misconduct. lindsay mentz told cnn he grabbed her backside while they were taking a photo at the minnesota state fair. franken says he did not remember it but feels badly that mentz came away from our interaction feeling disrespected. huffington says they were both being funny. she says that for more than 20 years there has never been anything remotely inappropriate in our interactions. the border patrol faces a deepening mystery surrounding the death of one agent and serious injuries to another. agent rogelio martinez died on sunday from injuries he sustained in the line of du
7:12 am
saturday in a culvert not far from the mexico border. david begnaud is atz the hospital where the injured office is in intensive care this morning. >> reporter: the surviving border patrol agent is in stable condition but apparently doesn't remember anything about what happened. the fbi is always brought in to investigate when it suspects that a federal law enforcement officer has been victimized. they are investigating here. but in a statement the fbi did not mention the word attack or assault to describe what happened. and you should know that within the last 48 hours there was an e-mail circulated within the border patrol that said it's unclear whether or not the agents were attacked or whether or not they were injured in a fall. agent rogelio martinez and his partners wounds were extensive. broken bones, major head trauma. martinez had injuries to his chest, collarbone and ribs. the border patrol agents union believes they were victims of a
7:13 am
been assaulted with possibly rocks. that's the only thing they can think of. there is nothing else there on the scene. >> reporter: the fbi says the agents were found around 11:20 saturday night in a culvert near interstate 10 outside of the town of van hoorne. martinez radioed in that he was getting out of his vehicle and following a trail of possible footprints in the dirt. he was later found unconscious and bleeding from the head. martinez apparently had not drawn his weapon. >> he was a dedicated agent that went out there to do his job and he did not make it home. >> reporter: the agents were air lifted to a hospital in el paso where martinez died from his injuries. on monday, president trump offered his sympathies to the agent's families and renewed his call for a border wall. >> we have to stop the massive drug flow from boring in and my respect to the families that were so badly hurt because they were devastated. >> reporter: emery crawford
7:14 am
friend. >> all he wanted to do was help people and help the world and try to make a difference. he would give his shirt off his back and wouldn't ask anything in response. >> the area where the agents were found is known to be a route used by drug smugglers. the fbi is supposed to hold a news conference later today. if that happens we will be there and even though exactly what happened is a mystery, nora, we can tell you that the governor of texas has authorized a $20,000 reward for anyone who comes forward with information that leads to an arrest and a conviction in this case. >> all right. thank you. the justice department is suing to block at&t's $85 billion purchase of time warn warner, the owner of cnn. >> you are fake news. you're fake knenews. >> concerns about the motives behind the government's legal challenge. julian julianna goldmann is at the
7:15 am
the justice department said it would harm competition, increase prices for consumers and result in less innovation. the doj also says that the newly combined firm would be able to charge rival cable distributors hundreds of millions of dollars more for time warner's programming. those costs would be passed down to the consumer but at&t has argued the merger would allow them to deliver cheaper programming over the internet instead of cable bundle packages and they say this deal is considered what's call a vertical merger means it's between two companies in the same industry who don't directly compete. now, during the 2016 presidential campaign then candidate donald trump said he would oppose the deal because it would concentrate too much power in the hands of too few. but at a press conference yesterday on monday at&t's ceo randall stephenson said he didn't know if the lawsuit was all about cnn, but gayle, he
7:16 am
a nonstarter. >> all right. thank you very much. the white house is designating north korea as a state sponsor of terrorism. south korea welcomed president trump's new move to pressure the leader kim jong-un around said would contribute to denuclearization. margaret has the latest. >> reporter: it has been more than 60 days since north korea launched a missile and this designation by the trump administration is potentially provocative and it could test just how much pressure kim jong-un will take before he agrees to negotiate. >> the united states is designating north korea as a state sponsor of terrorism. >> reporter: president trump said putting north korea back on the blacklist was part of its massive pressure campaign to isolate kim jong-un. >> in addition to threatening the world by nuclear devastation
7:17 am
supported acts of international terrorism including assassinations on foreign soil. >> reporter: specifically one state sponsored murder, that of leader kim jong-un's half brother. earlier this year his killing was caught on security cameras as two women smeared vx nerve agent on his face at a malaysian airport. >> as we take this action today, our thoughts turn to otto warmbier, a wonderful young man. >> reporter: the president also cited the case of otto warmbier, a college student who died after suffering abuse at a labor camp. but no proof for support for terrorist groups, a legal standard for other countries on the blacklist like syria and iran. this designation allows the u.s. to impose more sanctions on north korea, already the world's most sanctioned regime. >> the practical effects may be limited, but we hopefully we're closing off a few loopholes. >> reporter: but secretary of
7:18 am
is largely symbolic. >> the north koreans have demonstrated they have an enormous capacity to with stand a lot. they'll make their people pay. >> reporter: later today, the treasury department will make public what those new sanctions are going to look like. also nora, we have learned that president trump and vladimir putin plan to speak this morning, a day after putin met with syrian dictator assad. they have been talking about a political transition to end the war in syria. >> all right. thank you so much. time is running out for rescuers from the u.s. and other countries to find argentina's missing submarine. the last communication with the san juan came six days ago and the crew reported a battery failure. the subcannot stay submerged for more than seven days without coming up for air. families of the 44 crew members had an emotional meeting yesterday with argentina's president at a naval base. investigators are looking into the cause of

we at cbs as difficult as this is think it is very important that we hear from all of these women. >> well said. and i know gayle and i have talked about that. how courageous it is to be able to share this, because for many of them it's been something they've kept silent. >> they've suffered in silence and it shows that people are listening, people are paying attention and there are consequences for your actions and i think that as difficult as this is is a very important message to send. >> i agree with you. other news this morning the border patrol is looking for clues about what caused the death of one agent and serious injuries to another. agent rogelio martinez died sunday from injuries sustained in the line of duty. his unnamed partner suffered broken bones and major head trauma. their unit believes they were victims of a stoning attack. the agents were found late saturday night in a culvert in texas. law enforcement source tells cbs news martinez had earlier radioed in that he was following possiboo

tens of millions of americans are packing their bags right now this week to travel for the holiday. aaa expects 50.9 million travelers to hit the roads, rails and skies for thanksgiving journeys. it's the most since 2005. air travel, they say, will see the biggest increase of 5%. about 4 million people are expected to fly this holiday season. this holiday weekend. the busy travel week comes after cbs news learned
8:14 am
missed prohibited items at least 70% of the time at security check points during undercover testing. the new tsa administrator is with us now from washington to discuss as we get ready to hit the roads. thank you very much for joining us this morning. >> thank you for the opportunity to be with you this morning. >> here's the question i wonder. how is it they can get my contact lens solution but they can't get the weapons and really prohibited scary items? what can you say to reassure us that things are going to be better when we travel this weekend? just the other day my contact lens solution was confiscated and i had to throw it out. >> well, what we do is whenever we have a test like the inspector general conducted and we do our own testing as well, we use that to see where there are vulnerabilities. what we're doing right now and we've been doing over the past several weeks in fact into the summer is additional training for our security officer work force so i think it does an excellent job overall.
8:15 am
see over the course of this holiday season, and also investigating new technologies that we can put in place in the check point. i would say to you that i travel often. i think air travel is safe and secure. and i think it's actually safer and securer today after the results than it was beforehand. >> so what specific things is the tsa doing to improve? >> what we're doing to improve is first off we're focusing further on training our work force. it's a very important part of our overall security posture. i personally have participated in some of the training for transportation security officers and it's excellent and we explain to them the why of what they're doing based on the intelligence information, the threat information that we have. additionally we've changed some procedures. right now when you go to the airport, most airports, you'll have to take out of your carry on bags any electronic device that's bigger than a cell phone and put that into a bin and what that does, that procedure allows
8:16 am
clear image when your carry on bag goes through the x-ray machine. additionally we have new lanes in many airports thanks to the airports and the airlines partner ship with us and these new lanes allow five people at the same time to put their carry on bags into bins, which should eventually speed up the process, and also provides some security enhancements enhancements for us on the security side of those lanes. so i think you'll see an immediate improvement in security. additionally we're focused very hard and i've accelerated significantly our investigation of new technology in the check points. >> you know, al qaeda has recently called on attacks on trains in this country. what security precautions do you have in place for that? right now it appears anybody can get on a train carrying anything. >> we work very closely with the rail industry. in fact, i was just up in new york a couple of weeks ago went to the new york
8:17 am
jersey transit. we provide guidelines as tsa. we don't provide the security unlike at the airports where tsa provides security, but we provide guidelines to service transportation owners and operators and we work closely with them to assure intelligence information and also to share best practices back and forth between us. you'll see as you travel on transportation systems over this weekend an increased presence of law enforcement, of k-9 teams and that's part of the enhanced security posture in those systems. >> thank you so much for joining us this morning. thanks to all the tsa workers. i find them to be very professional. >> i agree with what he's saying. for the most part they do a very good job. are you traveling? are you going to test out your own system? >> my family is traveling to me but thanks for the comments on the work force. it's a difficult job to do. >> you're absolutely right about that. >> we're going to be traveling. >> we'll be doing our trains,

8:32 am
she was competing. all of these women shared their experience and offered insight on how they hope to help more women as they continue coming forward. >> when i started work on wall street i remember one day leaning over a desk to work on a spread sheet, and turning around and there was a guy behind me pretending to perform a sex act on me with all the other guys watching and all the other guys laughing and this sense of incredible shame and -- >> you felt ashamed. >> absolutely and how could i have leaned over the desk like that. >> we're kind of a culture from the time growing up if this locker room talk starts in high school with men thinking it's okay to oversexualize women, like, what did we think was going to happen 30 or 40 years later when they get into the board room? you think about incidents over the last year with harvey weinstein and roger ailes and bill o'reilly. these are companies where not
8:33 am
just those individuals were treemly powerful but everyone who runs that position of power is a man. >> if you had women on the boards in those companies you would not have had the kind of payouts. there's no way. >> the majority of cases that have come out, in some ways there are gray areas. it's very rarely black and white. you know, i think there is this problematic definition of rape as something that happens in a dark alley by a scary drunkard stranger. but the reality is, that only 8% of women are raped by strangers. >> jessica, i want to get you in here. did you know what was happening to you was wrong and did you feel like there was someone at the olympics committee in management somewhere on the team that you could go talk to to help stop this behavior? >> you know, i didn't. and i was in a position where i had to just
8:34 am
when news about the doctor started coming out i realized i wasn't the only one and more than 140 women have now come forward and usa gymnastics has done nothing and i really believe that the entire board needs to resign. there have been changes at fox, there have been changes at the wine steven company and usa gymnastics is just going on with business as usual and it's hurtful to me as a victim. >> while we have victims or survivors coming forward and saying metoo, we need men to say, i did that. we need men to step forward and to see themselves in these stories. >> i think that there are a lot of men that are in shock as to what they believe normal behaifz yo -- behavior was. harvey is an extreme case, a sexual predator and for somebody to say i grew up in a sexually
8:35 am
promi promiscuous time is bull especially somebody that's in media and looks at the foreground of culture and also politics. >> we're different ages but we know about anita hill, we know about bill clinton, we know about bill cosby. what makes this moment different sf. >> the proliferation of social media and media outlets because back in the day if i wanted to say something, what was i going to do? what's different is we have a way to express our voices. what's also different about this moment is women are rallying around each other. >> pandora's box is opened and pandora is pissed. we have to ban together and now our foot is firmly in the door. now what do we do? okay? certain things happened then but this is now. what do i do and what do i say to my daughters, what do you say do your readers? >>
8:36 am
women, the readers of teen vogue is more forthright about what's happening in their bodies than older women. >> yes, absolutely, but i think one thing i want to kind of put forward into this conversation is that it happens to strong powerful women too. and so i think this -- it's important, this messaging about, you know, we need more women in these leadership polsitions, we need more women on boards but it might still happen to you. >> that's actually the reason i spoke up because i was sexually harassed after already raising over $100 million for my company, after having a successful company, and after i refused this investor's sexual advantage -- advances he called my board members and told them i was being unresponsive and should likely be fired. so he tried to come after my career when i rejected him. >> what was your reaction to
8:37 am
be 100% transparency. so i went to my board and i showed the text messages that i had received and shared the experience that i'd had and honestly my board members were shocked and we decided as a board to take immediate action together. >> for me as a woman who's dealt with some degree of it and funny enough i actually saw the person that i've had an encounter with on the red carpet walking into the winner of the year awards. a and at that moment, someone leading the resistance for this generation, i felt conflicted. i haven't addressed it with this person. i'm still wrestling with it. how many other women feel that way? how many other women who are standing up and retweeting are still traumatized and still trying to unpack what happened? >> we talk about what happens next. and we talk about that in the context of people outside immediate victim hood, but what happens next for victims? how do you feel s
8:38 am
allegations have been made public? >> i've just come around to the anger and i really, really struggle and i don't know if it's ever going to go away. and i think that's an important thing for people to understand that this doesn't just dissipate the moment you speak up. it's almost a moment that you speak up that you can actually start to process. >> do you think you can get to a point where this isn't the thing that you think defines you? >> i hope so. i really do. >> you will. >> yeah, and i -- seeing you guys and just listening to everything that you've been talking about, it's -- it almost makes me want to cry because i know that we can do what we need to do to make sure this never happens again. so that not one person has to come up and say, you know, metoo. and i am just very empowered by
8:39 am
>> according to multiple reports jessica howard's former team doctor is expected to plead guilty to first degree criminal sexual conduct charges in a michigan court tomorrow. in a statement to cbs this morning usa gymnastics said, our athletes are our priority and we are committed to promoting an environment of empowerment that encourages speaking up especially on difficult topics like abuse. >> well, jessica certainly put them on notice. i thought she raised a very good point and raised some troubling allegations about them. but i hope this is more than just a moment of we talk about it and it goes away, that we get used to a new normal. we've all had experiences where somebody does something and you go well, that was bad but it wasn't that bad and now we have to face the fact that it's all bad. so varying degrees but it's all bad. >> and i think it -- this moment is one of catharsis and healing but there is the question, when do the men sit down at the table with ustion because this is a conversation that needs to happen with both genders.
8:40 am
>> i said earlier you know, it's systematic and it's pervasive and what it does is it cripples women's confidence. it cripples their ability to succeed and i think you have understand that. management has to understand that. not just say we're going to create a safe work environment. actually create that environment. >> and these are shattering experiences and we need to make sure people are whole. >> and zero tolerance, but i thought jane had one of the best lines. pandora's box is open and pandora is pissed. >> she's very pissed. >> we should say that was scheduled weeks ago before we are now part of this conversation. >> it came to fruition on friday. good timing to be having this conversation. >> thank you very much. music producer and dj diplo is here. i just saw him in the green room. he's reliving his historic concert in cuba. ho

our experiences and the one thing i told the director is don't make this about us or our vacation, let's find the stories there. and the film ends up like an analog internet. people trade music and they trade information through the island through one usb key up and down the streets. that's how they found about it. >> he sends it and he sends it. it was amazing to see that in 2017. >> the way that music can be in some ways political, because cuba of course is a communist nation with limits on free speech and expression. how did you find that? i mean, performing there? >> well, we had our work hand in hand with the government to arrive there. it wasn't easy. i think our music was a bit easier to accept. we don't have any political views. we don't do profanity, nothing very negative in our music. so they like records like "lean on," records about self-discovery and our content

there. they're trying to live just like us every day. something like this happens to them, a giant concert, the one experience, you know, that we had been part of and it's amazing to kind of see the growth and explosion. i thought when we went there this would be the beginning of many concerts. like there would be a huge amount of americans going there, but it really was the only thing and now the doors are kind of closing because we passed different laws really recently about traveling and so we don't know if it's going to happen again. >> you have an amazing career. not bad for a guy who made mix tapes in his bedroom and you are now one of the number one djs in the world. >> it started -- my path was very different than a lot of the musicians but i think just learning my way through it all kind of i think it's exploring different ways to do it. >> thank you diplo. i love that memory of making mix tapes. those were good times. >> give me future is now available on apple music.
