7:03 am
good morning norah. we begin with the story that is rocking the political world again. former new york congressman anthony weiner's admitting his role in a new sexting scandal. >> weiner says he continues sending inappropriate messages to young women long after resigning in the scandal two years ago. this time, it could could cost him a shot at political redeming for his campaign for mayor of new york city. jan crawford is with us. >> reporter: good morning, norah, good morning, charlie. it is the timing of this i think is the stunner. anthony weiner led people to believe he had put all the sexting behind him, went through therapy, when he resigned in disgrace in 2011 and built this campaign for mayor on the idea of redemption and second chances. yesterday, he admitted he was still sending lewd texts last summer after he'd had that therapy and after his wife had had a baby. >> i have said that other texts and photos were likely to come
7:04 am
out and today they have. >> reporter: new york city mayor mayoral candidate weiner found himself in a familiar position explaining tawdry online message, with a woman who is not his wife. >> perhaps some surprised that more things didn't come out sooner. >> reporter: plenty capeme out in 2011 when weiner stepped away from his congressional seat over revelation, he sent indecent pictures and texts to several women via twitter, charges weiner initially denied. >> this was a hoax it was committed on me it was a prank. >> reporter: but the truth caught up with him. in june, 2011, he resigned apologetically. >> today, i'm announcing my res resignation from congress. >> reporter: but now he's admitted his resignation did not mark the end of his lewd online activity. >> some of these things happened before my resignation, some of these things happened after. >> reporter: in which weiner took on the pseudonym carlos
7:05 am
danger, made public by a goes sip gossip website, is too dirty for network television. in his discussions, weiner even referred to the scandal. sadly, my pics are out there to look at. have you ever? to which the woman replied, yes, and i must say, quite impressed. weiner was having explicit sexual exchanges last summer. even after a "people" magazine profile last july complete with a family photo. in that article, his wife huma abedin, a longtime aide to hillary clinton, said he was trying to be the best husband he could be. yesterday, she spoke for the first time at the press conference. >> anthony's made some horrible mistakes. both before he resigned from congress and after. but i do very strongly believe that that is between us and our marriage. >> reporter: now, two new york newspapers this morning are calling for weiner to get out of
7:06 am
the mayor's race. "the new york times" said he disqualified himself with this and the "new york daily news" said on the front page enough of all the lies and salacious revelations. weiner is not set to lead america's premier city. in big headlines, charlie and norah, "beat it." >> it was not just text messages, they spoke on the phone too? >> reporter: that's what the woman said, they talked on the phone not only every other day but multiple times daily. >> let me ask you about huma a abedin. widely respected. she's never spoken publicly at a campaign event. this was her first appearance. >> it was almost painful to watch. her body language, the way she's standing there, you know, almost not looking at him, saying that they've put this behind them and this was between the two of them. >> why do you think she did it. >> >> that's the great question. why is she staying in this marriage? what's motivating her? is it love? is it ambition? you know she knows --
7:07 am
>> and what kind of advice is she getting and from whom. >> well, yes, is she talking to hillary clinton, who has some experience with some of these issues. >> i know you'll be back at 8:00 to talk more about this thank you. president obama kicks off a campaign-style tour today. his first stop galesburg, illinois. will give what is being billed as a major economic address. >> a cbs news poll out this morning shows americans are not feeling good about the economy. 37% rate it as good. 61% say it's bad. cbs news political director john dickerson is in washington. john, good morning. >> good morning, charlie. >> what does the president hope to accomplish by reaching back to earlier themes about inequality as well as facing some very tough possibilities in congress on the debt ceiling and sequestration? >> well, it's that fight on the debt ceiling and sequestration. we've been given a little break from the chronic fights.
7:08 am
remember, we had one every month or so. they're coming back in the fall. what the president's trying to do here is these initiatives, set the terms of that debate. again, we've seen that time and time again in this presidency. but to the extent there's going to be a showdown over the budget, he wants to try to argue it on his terms. that themes will be familiar. and at the center it seeps s will be the middle class, what should be done to improve the situation of the middle class. >> to put a lot of emphasis on these speeches and try to redefine -- but in fact they're old arguments, nothing new. >> they're very old arguments. the white house would say yes, they're the solutions we've been pushing for years but we're fighting with a congress particularly republicans, who don't want to meet us halfway. and so don't -- they would say, i guess they focus on the fact there's nothing new here. the problem for the president is that he's tried this time and again. remember, he's made this the centerpiece of his campaign of state of the union addresses. so it is an old fight. the question is will it be
7:09 am
moved by public speeches or is it really about the negotiations in washington, and working with those republicans, and that's not going to be changed by a public relations campaign. >> john, we also found in our new poll that more americans than ever want the health care law repealed. and a majority are confused about it. this is the same problem the white house has faced from the very beginning about a lack of understanding about what is involved in obama care. i think many people may not even know the mandate for having insurance as of october 1st. what's the white house doing? >> this is another chronic issue. the white house is trying. there's an operational part to this. the white house has got to get people to sign up for these health exchanges, particularly younger healthier americans. and so they are tactically running a campaign much like the presidential campaign reaching out, using the techniques of that campaign to get the younger people to sign up for these health exchanges. and the feeling basically is again, speeches aren't going to
7:10 am
change public opinion. this has got to start taking hold. people have got to start signing up. and the white house hopes good things will start to happen once it kicks in. and that might turn around public opinion. but that's a ways away. >> john dickerson, thank you. the royal baby and his parents are on the move this morning. prince william duchess kate and the unnamed future king left what's being called private time. they're in kate's hometown of buckleberry about an hour from london. mark phillips is following it all. we heard the baby had a very special visitor today. >> yes, good morning, norah. it's a very special visit this morning. the child's great grandmother who happens to be the queen dropped by for about a half hour visit. we can surmise the issue of names may have come up during that little session. she was a visitor of course to perhaps the most socially advanced child on the parent who's already learned two lessons in life. one, the world's going to make an enormous fuss about him. two, he's going to live in a big
7:11 am
house. the first day on the planet. the first day on the job. young prince what's his name making the first of a lifetime of appearances that will blur the line between what's public and what's private in his life. his parents have already learned to cope with that distinction. and in the media madness that accompanied this appearance seemed to be the calmest people there. the kid seems to be learning his trade too. when they gave the royal wave he seemed to as well. >> he's got a good pair of lungs on him, that's for sure. he's a big boy, he's quite heavy, but we're still working on a name. we'll have that as soon as we can. >> reporter: this photogenic young royal rock star family is again in that strange place, spending a private time in the glare of world attention, and freely sharing the moment. >> very emotional. >> it's such a special time. think any parent probably can sort of know what this feeling feels like. >> reporter: how has the royal scene changed?
7:12 am
contrast this moment with the one 31 years ago when william was presented by his parents charles and diana in exactly the same place. not just the clothes have changed. so much has happened. that's part of the mystical appeal of the british royals. their history seeps s seems to be our history. the inevitable questions followed as they would for anybody. who does he look like? >> he's got her looks thankfully. >> no, no no. >> reporter: then it was into the car seat. even royal babies are buckled in now. and daddy drives home. but there is the business of the name still to come. the betting is still on something traditional. james or george still tops the list. >> i don't suppose we're going to see king kevin or king nigel? >> i think that's very unlikely. >> reporter: maybe something with philip in it says royal coil royal nikka. >> it's one of charles' middle
7:13 am
names. and so fondly of his grandfather who has not been well recently who is i'm sure looking forward to meeting this little boy. >> reporter: the plan is for william to go back to his day job as a helicopter pilot once his two weeks of paternity leave are over. kate it's thought may spend some time at her family's home just outside of london to get a little grandmotherly help perhaps and a little bit normalcy. charlie, norah. major league baseball deciding major punishment for one of the game's biggest stars. alex rodriguez. it's part of baseball's ongoing doping investigation. the news comes just days after milwaukee brewer's outfielder ryan braun was suspended for the rest of the season. jim axelrod covering this story. >> reporter: rodriguez is the game's highest paid player. and an announcement about his fate is expected sometime within the next few weeks. the penalty he faces according to an executive for a major league baseball team could be far harsher than the 65-game
7:14 am
suspension braun received. the team executive says it's not a matter of if rodriguez will be suspended forperformance enhancing drugs but when. quote, multiple years of usage. he's met with major league baseball. he's seen the evidence. he is staring down a penalty much much harsher than brauns. it could be years or even a lifetime suspension. both rodriguez and braun are on a list of at least 15 players accused of using banned drugs from a now closed anti-aging clinic in south florida. it was run by a man named tony bosh who is now cooperating with baseball. tony quinn who first reported in february said the case against a. rod is even stronger than the one against braun. >> several sources told us that tony bosch used to go directly
7:15 am
to alex rodriguez's home to inject him. we don't know the full extent of what they have but so far sources have been very consistent that they've got a great more on rodriguez. >> reporter: according to a team executive we spoke with his possible drug use is not the only thing baseball is investigating. they're looking into his use and also whether he lied whether he obstructed the investigation and whether he got other players involved. >> with a-rod, the timing may depend on whether or not he is willing to negotiate, would they stall because of of that.that. either way, they don't want this dragging on all season. >> rodriguez is in the sixth year of his ten-year contract. at the end of the season he will still be owed some $86 million. that's a lot of incentive for him to cut a deal and avoid being banned from baseball because even if he's suspended for a full season he'll still be able to collect on the remaining three years of his contract, whether he plays again or not. but a lifetime ban makes that contract null and void. >> jim axelrod, thank you.
7:16 am
and a natural gas well is on fire in the gulf of mexico following an explaegs. the well is located 55 miles off the coast of louisiana. a blowout yesterday forced the evacuation of 44 workers from a portable drilling rig. no one is sure the. inspecters say they're seeing a sheen half a mile wide but it is breaking apart quickly. it won't be nearly as bad as the bp oil spill. no word this morning on the cause. after resting on tuesday, pope francis is beginning a busy day in brazil. he is visiting a shrine to the virgin mary. it is considered the most important roman catholic shrine in all of brazil. francis is celebrating the first public mass of his week-long visit. more than 150,000 pilgrims are expected to attend. the pope will also be visiting sao paulo and rio de janeiro later today. wherever he goes he's getting the rock star treatment. and he is reaching out to the country youth.
7:17 am
dean reynolds is in rio de janeiro. >> reporter: thousands massed on the beach to kick off world youth day celebrations and to honor pope francis. on his way here the pope spoke of a very specific concern for the young. "we are running the risk of having a generation that does not work," he said. "young people in this moment are in crisis." many of the demonstrators protesting in the rio streets this week are young. but the pope has another issue. involving catholics of all ages. take brazil. it may have one chance of all the world's catholics but the number of church members has been shrinking for decades. a recent analysis of census data shows that 65% of brazilians identify themselves as catholic. but that's down from 92% in 1970. the decline is due to a number of factors. the population is growing in
7:18 am
cities where secularization is spreading. and protestant and evangelical churches have been increasing their share of churchgoers. this new pope has identified strongly with the poor and disadvantaged. and it's hoped such a message may prove more attractive than the defensiveness that prevailed in the wake of repeated vatican scandals, both financial and sexual. in rio, we found new yorker ariana drauch who credited the pope with re-energizing the faithful. >> i think the pope has a great head on his shoulders and he definitely -- he knows what he's talking about. >> reporter: dean reynolds de janeiro, cbs news. time now for headlines. for that to happen the stock would have to trip until value. >> "the washington post" says the cia is winding down operations in afghanistan. the spy agency plans to cut the number of its clandestine bases in afghanistan in half.
7:19 am
>> the "los angeles times" look at apple third quarter earnings. the company beat predictions. also set a record for the number of iphones sold. the news sent shares higher in after hours trading. >> "the boston globe" said a grand jury is hearing emd on whether aaron hernandez should be charged in the shooting death of two men in 2012. he is due in court today for the murder of another man last month. he has pled not guilty in that case. >> beefing up patrols along interstate 80. from new jersey to california. police are looking for speeders and drunk drivers. a study finds some the we are going to see a lot of sunshine around the bay area starting out with some dense fog along the coastline and a few patches of fog inside the bay. looking back toward the city of san francisco, those clouds are going to clear out and pull back toward the coast. that's where we'll find a whole lot of sunshine. the monsoonal clouds are moving on out. more sunshine moving in. the temperatures going to be in the 80s and low 90s inland.

antle the nation nation's intelligence community's counterterrorism tools. >> john, good morning. >> good morning. >> so when general alexander goes in to meet with members of congress and try to get them to not curtail nsa's power, what's his argument? >> i think you know his problem walking in the door is he's got 535 members of congress who except for the two small groups on the two intelligence committees only know what they read in the newspapers about that and that's basically edward snowden's narrative that they're collecting this and trolling through it and violating americans' privacy. what general alexander has to do is say, look here's the haystack and the entire 35,000 people that make up the nsa, there's only seven manager positions that are authorized to
7:34 am
even say okay to looking in the hay stack and we only do it when we have a foreign terrorist number and we have to ask ourselves the question is this bad guy overseas in touch with one or more people that could be a sell here? so when he adds on all the rules that go with this program, he should allay their anxiety because there's a lot of rules. >> is there one case that he uses to illustrate what he means? >> there are 50 cases, but there are four very good stories where they say let me give you one. so the fbi investigated a suspected terrorist several years ago and found knoll connection to terrorism, so they went on to the next case. now the next case is on monitoring a real terrorist overseas and they query the system. is he talking to anybody in the united states, and, boom, he comes up. he's in regular touch with this number. they don't know what the name is, but they know this phone number. they give that to the fbi.
7:35 am
they say find out with the warrant and all the court papers you need who's on the other end of this line. that turns out to be an individual who's engaged in conversation with al qaeda to blow up the stock exchange in new york. that's a perfect example of what alexander was trying to tell congress yesterday which is if you don't have the haystack you can't find the need >> what is general alexander telling members of congress who are probably hearing from some of their constituents, this nsa behemoth is growing, that they're not snooping up from all of my phone calls and records. what are they doing to address those concerns? >> i think that's the other thing general alexander has been doing. i think he carries around the big rule book. he isn't allowed to listen on u.s. persons, even if they're u.s. persons in another country. he says we go through all these hoops to determine might this person be an american or legal
7:36 am
resident. then they have all kinds of checks and balances self-reporting requirements inspector generals and audits and this is a daily theme in their work and apparently this is the training that snowden didn't get, because he hasn't included all of these tests or materials you have to take in this material. >> john, thank you. yesterday key prosecution witness steve flemmi came under fierce allegations. flemmi fired back. he claimed bulger was a pedophile who took a 16-year-old girl on vacation to mexico. with us now cbs analyst rickykki klieman klieman. already, rikki, sordid details and tough charges. >> tough charges indeed. what we know is we have two heads of the boston underworld.
7:37 am
a verbal duo between the witness on the witness stand from frank brennan, the defense er whitey bulger's skin for his future divulgement, it's going to be that. one of the things i think the prosecution makes a mistake in doing is the prosecution tries
7:38 am
to portray stevie "the rifleman" flemmi as the one. he says you committed murder after murder after murder years decades before you met whitey bulger. you weren't subservient. you were equal. what is the defense looking for? jury nullification to say they're all terrible that the prosecution the government got in bed with these terrible people all to put away whitey bulger. well, was it worth it. >> when do you expect the defense to start making its case? >> i think the defense will actually begin, charlie, if not the end of this week certainly next week. today, the finish of flemmi which is going to push him right onto the witness stand -- mark my words. >> yes, i will. >> all right. we're going to talk it.
7:39 am
would be rewards and inducements to flemmi. he got to keep something like $3 million worth of real estate even though he goes into the penitentiary, and we're going to learn what kind of penitentiary he's in in federal security and i bet it's a bit cushy. >> thank you, rikki. only on "cbs this morning," the police officer who released pictures of dzhokhar tsarnaev. up next the team known for tagging live sharks. they're getting ready for what they call the greatest white shark expedition in history. that's tomorrow on "cbs this morning."

8:16 am
cancer surge rn and professor at new york school of medicine. why is this technology needed? >> melanoma is a very serious form of skin cancer. it represents an opportunity for us as dermatologists to make a difference and save lives. when caught early is considered most completely curable. when it spreads, it is one of the worst cancers you could have. there is a role for early detection and patient education. >> melafind is a great leap forward as far as technology goes. it does show an effective sensitivity in dying nosing melanoma. it is only as good as the clinical experience of your dermatologist. unless the dermatologist recognizes a mole is concerning if they don't choose to use the melafind, they may miss something. i worry about giving a false sense of security to a patient. at that point in time melafind
8:17 am
may say, this is not melanoma. people need to recognize their moles can change and it may be premallig nant and may turn into megaknow ma. >> what about the concern of patients, many that have skin cancer and get frequent biopsies and say, yeah now, i have scars all over me from all these biopsies. >> it is definitely a concern. we are trying to get better at minimizing unnecessary biopsies. it is important for patients to realize, when done in the right hands, biopsies are not necessarily disfiguring. they can be just as effective as diagnosing melanoma. if your doctor is concerned, it should be done and will not leave a disfiguring scar. >> do you use it? >> i do not use it. i was trained. i do mole checks several times in my practice.
8:18 am
at this point, i do not see implementing it but at some point, i might. the technology is impressive. >> thank you very much. >> thanks for having me. all that mattered 44 years ago today, the splash that made history by not getting anyone wet. do you know how it happened? the answer is next on "cbs this morning." >> announcer: "cbs healthwatch" sponsored by allergan. talk to your doctor today about chronic migraines. doctor today about chronic migraine. the odds could be in your favor? botox® is an fda-approved treatment that significantly reduces headache days for adults with chronic migraine 15 or more headache days a month each lasting 4 hours or more. it's proven to actually prevent headache days. and it's injected by a doctor once every 3 months. the effects of botox® (onabotulinumtoxina) may spread hours to weeks after injection causing serious symptoms. alert your doctor right away as difficulty swallowing speaking, breathing, eye problems, or muscle weakness
