7:04 am
i do and i don't know that we are going to have a lawsuit, but we certainly want to keep somebody honest. >> reporter: in dueling television town halls last night, donald trump and ted cruz aired their legal laundry. >> at last, this has not been a typically race by any sense. and i don't think anyone is surprised that donald is threatening to sue people. adult life. >> reporter: trump has threatened to sue over this ad that shows his previous support for abortion rights. respect. >> reporter: trump's lawyers said in a letter to cruz's campaign the ad was, quote, replete with outright lies and misrepresents that mr. trump is pro choice. wednesday night, cruz said a lawsuit filed over one's own words would fail. >> it is quite literally the most ridiculous theory i've ever heard that telling the voters what donald trump's actual record is deceitful in lying. i invited mr. trump. i said, please, donald, file this lawsuit. >> reporter: also part of a town

7:07 am
marco rubio and jeb bush it's nice to have something on your side if you're marco rubio. in that respect, it helps. but it's not going to, i don't think, give him a huge boost in south carolina. >> john, in some ways, haley's endorsement of marco rubio a blow to jeb bush? apparently, former president george w. bush met privately with haley on monday to ask for that endorsement for his brother. >> jeb bush's argument is governors know it better than senators. he said i've had experience. so it would have been nice to have a fellow governor say i agree with that. and so in the news cycles, it's not good for jeb bush. he was trying to build a little something in south carolina. if he doesn't do well in south carolina, which means beating rubio, it's a real blow to his campaign. so, yes, this is jeb bush would

challenges go well beyond the interests me about nevada. >> john, thank you so much. sources confirm to cbs news overnight that the white house is set to announce today that president obama will make a historic visit to cuba. the short stop over in march will mark another huge step toward improving relations. the plan drew immediate criticism from critics, including republican presidential candidates. no sitting president has visited havana since calvin coolidge in 1928. there is your fun fact for the day. >> thank you, norah o'donnell. >> write that down. >> i'm writing it down. apple is getting support this morning from another high-tech heavyweight in its standoff with the fbi. google's ceo says apple is right to defy a judge's order to help unlock the iphone used by one of the san bernardino killers. the fbi needs just four digits to crack this code.
7:09 am
with the escalating fight. >> reporter: good morning. apple's lawyers are digging in. industry sources say the tech giant is ready to fight this all the way to the supreme court. the fbi is locked out of syed farook's iphone. they say apple is not a company that hands over its company's private information. the u.s. magistrate judge ordered apple to -- apple's ceo tim cook says the tech giant doesn't have the technology and that developing it would create a back door to not only that iphone but millions of devices. the white house defended the department of justice's request for apple to aid in an investigation. the president calls an important national priority. >> they are not asking apple to
7:10 am
create a new back door to one of their products. they are simply asking for something that would have an impact on this one device. >> reporter: as the war on terror and the right to privacy collide, cnet's dan ackerman says apple and the fbi have competing and compelling interests. >> apple says if you promise you only use it once it's going to get used again and again and once you create the precedent of giving that access once you're not able to deny at the time next time. >> reporter: google's ceo posted a series of tweets wednesday citing with apple, saying we give law enforcement access to data based on valid legal orders, but that is wholly different than requiring companies to enable hacking of customer devices and data. in the two months since farook and his wife tashfeen malik killed 14 people in san bernardino, california, the fbi is poring over theirs electronic and internet history and
7:11 am
and malik sympathized with isis and other islamic radicals leading up to the terror attack. publicly, apple says it doesn't have the technology to do what the fbi wants but a top industry official tells cbs news that apple could theoretically write the software to comply with that ruling. a los angeles hospital admits it paid nearly $17,000 in ransom to hackers. the fbi is investigating the cyber attack that disabled the computer network at the hollywood presbyterian medical center. carter evans is at the hospital with the story behind the ransom payment. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. the hospital says patient care was not affected by the attack and computer systems are up and running again. authorities are now searching for these hackers who were paid with bit coin. a digital currency that is nearly impossible to trace. and while the hospital says it notified law enforcement immediately, we are now learning
7:12 am
in a brazen attack, hackers disabled the computer network of the hollywood presbyterian medical center. a source familiar with the investigation tells cbs news, the hospital paid the nearly $17,000 ransom to take back control before contacting law enforcement. in a statement, the president of the hospital said, the quickest and most efficient way to restore our systems was to pay the ransom. >> if they decide to pay the ransom, it probably means they didn't have very good backups and weren't able to recover the data and that the data would have been lost if they didn't pay the ransom. >> reporter: on february 5th, hackers infiltrated the hospital's computer network what is known as ransomware that held sensitive information and files on the network hostage and making it accessible only with the use of a decryption key provided after ransom was paid. >> hospitals are a very big target now. >> reporter: dave kennedy runs a cyber security firm and has
7:13 am
he says after highly publicized data breaches involving credit card companies hackers are moving on to easier targets and many hospitals have been slow to adequately secure their networks. a 2015 study found that criminal cyberattacks on health care organizations have increased 125% since 2010 and the danger can sometimes be life threaten. >> when the ransom pieces affect the machines it's causing the system to stop functioning and can definitely impact life and systems that support life. >> reporter: now if hackers are able to gain access to medical records, they will have social security number and other private information that could be sold on the black market. cyber security experts tell us it's the smaller networks like hospitals and schools that are ransomware attacks. >> thank you, carter. this morning, cbs news poll shows americans are split over the president's plan to nominate
7:14 am
justice antonin scalia. 47% in our poll says the president should choose a nomination this year and 46% say the nomination should be made after the november election. margaret brennan is at the white house with reaction. >> reporter: good morning. president obama decision to skip the saturday funeral of justice scalia is being seen by some as a snub of the conservative judge. and a missed opportunity by others. former obama administration official steve ratner said if we want to reduce partisanship we can honor those who we disagree with. the president will pay his respects on friday when ska lee''s body is in repose at the supreme court. there is no protocol. while george w. bush delivered
7:15 am
funeral his predecessor bill clinton attended two services and skipped the services for two others. the white house won't say whether it was the president's schedule or security concerns or another factor that led him to bow out. but, norah, it has become yet another politically charged moment ahead of that fierce battle to fill justice scalia's seat. >> thank you, margaret. turkey blames this morning a syrian with ties to a kurdish militia for a devastating bomb attack. the car bomb attack killed 28 people and hit dozenses more in ankara, the capital city. turkey vows to retaliate for the attacks. radioactive military is missing in iraq and raising fears that isis was acquired a dangerous new weapon. it was stolen last year from near basra and kept in a case the size of a laptop.

8:33 am
the box to the your tv. that cable box is provided to you by the cable company, by comcast, time warner cable and verizon. every month in your cable bill, you're paying 9, 10, $11 to rent that box. what the fcc is considering whether the cable companies need to change the way the information flows over that line so that other companies can make boxes, then there will kbe competition for the box and presumably that line in your bill will get reduced. if there is competition, you'll pay a little bit less. >> the cable companies, they say the consumer will pay more. true or false? >> the company cables have a bunch of arguments. hey, the system works right now and two, there might be some kind of violations of people's privacy or people will be able to advertise on top of our content. then the cable companies have a monopoly and raise other parts of your bill if this part gets reduced. my view it probably will bring prices down and that competition is good and this is a way --
