"time," was somehow behind the paper's story of two instances of trump alleged sexual misconduct. >> carlos slim as you know comes from mexico. he's given many millions of dollars to the clintons and their initiatives. reporters at the "new york times," they're not journalists. they're corporate lobbyists for carlos slim and for hillary clinton. >> reporter: in a statement, "times" publisher arthur sulzberger, jr. said slim, "has never sought to influence what we report." and slim said via a spokesman that he, "exerts no influence over content," at the paper. in a statement, trump said he vaguely remembers zervos, did not meet her at a hotel, and never accosted her. elaine, trump went on to say media fascination with these accusation stories is creating a theater of absurdity in america that threatens, he said, to poison the american mind and the electorate. >> quijano: major garrett reporting. major, thank you. 25 days before the election, the

6:05 pm
former michigan governor jennifer granholm suggested last july that clinton combat the image that she is out of touch or in a bubble by selecting eight occupations that she is willing to spend one day working at. for example, perhaps she buses tables at denny's or works behind the counter at mcdonald's. last september, podesta's former think tank partner neera tanden wrote, "everyone wants her to apologize over her use of a private server, and she should. apologies are like her achille's heel." in january, democratic strategist steve hildebrand advised, "she needs to find an emotional connection. she also needs to be bold and not be politically calculating." the messages go back ten years. in one, from 2008, a group of democratic strategists prepare a public survey to test attacks against then-senator barack obama, including his father was a muslim. his former use of cocaine, and his support of issues like gay

peninsula pretty far in to cover a large portion of the territory of the peninsula. >> reporter: but the new technologies kept driving the cost up, and the number of ships the navy could afford down, from 32 to just three. that explains why the "zumwalt" alone costs an astronomical $4 billion. it's now up to the ship's crew to make the navy's newest destroyer pay off. david martin, cbs news, aboard the u.s.s.

he says "because the hospital is just too far." pastor alfred habumugisha experienced this in the worstcei possible way. his daughter, pacifique iraguha, urgently needed a blood transfusion after losing her baby. the pastor spent five frantic hours waiting for a supply of blood to arrive, but it was too late. "certainly, no one should die because of a lack of blood," the pastor said. "it feels like she was washedd away by a river." the rwandan government has signed on with silicon valley in the hopes of changing that. >> from this distribution center, we can serve thousands of help workers and doctors, and for those individuals, the experience of system is super simple-- send a text message, receive the product you need to save a patient's life. >> reporter: this particular flight took a mere five minutes before the blood was delivered to a clinic 33 miles away. and as the drones soar over the

it's the little things in life that make me smile. spending the day with my niece. i don't use super poligrip for hold, because my dentures fit well. before those little pieces would get in between my dentures and my gum and it was uncomfortable. even well fitting dentures let in food particles. just a few dabs of super poligrip free is clinically proven to seal out more food particles so you're more comfortable and confident while you eat. so it's not about keeping my dentures in, it's about keeping the food particles out. ? 26 miles across the sea santa catalina is waiting for me >> quijano: the four preps put catalina on the map-- water all around it everywhere, tropical seas and the salty air. well, there's still plenty of water around it, but on the island, carter evans tells us barely a drop, a bad omen for the california mainland.

>> quijano: today, the u.s. government banned galaxy note 7 phones from all flights. earlier this week, samsung discontinued the phone because a battery defect can cause it to explode. one of the classic lines from "jaws" is, "you're gonna need a bigger boat." here's a div stronger cage. off mexico's baja peninsula a great white shark was chasing bait when it slammed into the cage and broke in. the diver calmly waited at the bottom and surfaced after the shark had thrashed the way out. in carrollton, texas, police responded to a noise complaint. the responding officers' body camera captured the scene. turns out, it was a groom and his groomsmen practicing fair wedding.
