tod today's "eye opener," your world in 90 seconds. there are some major changes coming to the programming lineup here at fox news channel. >> bill o'reilly ousted from fox news. >> i have some experiences that were uncomfortable for me to know never to put myself in a position where i was alone with bill. >> an embarrassing end to a 20-year run. >> it is the end of an era here at the fox news channel. we wish him the very best. >> the trump administration is currently conducting across the entire government a review of our iran policy. >> saudi arabia is stepping up to its regional leadership role to restore stability in this key region in the world. >> cbs news has learned a manhunt is under way for a traitor inside the central intel jejs agency. >> involved in one of the worst security breaches in cia history. >> massive demonstrations in venezuela. what government opponents call the mother of all protests.

7:03 am
in. >> well played, gronk. >> sean spicer a huge patriots' fan. >> all right. that was cool. >> this morning's "eye opener" is presented by toyota, let's go places. welcome to "cbs this morning." bill o'reilly remains defiant despite losing his job at fox news over sexual harassment scandal. the biggest star of cable news was forced out yesterday from his top-rated show. he was a prime time fixture for more than 20 years. >> o'reilly said in a statement, quote, it is tremendously disheartening that we part ways due to completely unfounded claims but that is the unfortunate reality many of us in the public eye must live with today. anna werner is at fox news headquarters in new york. good morning. >> good morning. bill o'reilly continues to draw huge audiences even as this
7:04 am
scandal enveloped him. after more than 50 advertisers fled, fox news channel was confronted with the question of whether its corporate culture is hostile to women. so on wednesday, the network parent company said after a thorough and careful review of the allegations, bill o'reilly will not be returning to fox news channel. >> it is the end of an era here at the fox news channel. >> reporter: on wednesday night bill o'reilly's name vanished from his show. >> bill has been the undisputed king of cable news and for good reason. >> hi, i'm bill o'reilly. thanks for watching us tonight. >> reporter: he has spent 16 years at the top of the cable news heap. but then word of quiet settlements with five women came out in ""the new york times"" sexual harassment claims go back to 2004. >> fire bill o'reilly. >> reporter: and fox news came under intense pressure to drop him. npr media correspondent david said the situation became untenable for the family that controls fox. >> at a certain point what the
7:05 am
murdochs had to decide whether they wanted this shao of sexual misconduct to define their network. >> reporter: rupert murdoch with his sons lachlan and james told employees we want to underscore our consistent commitment to fostering a work environment built on the values of trust and respect. o'reilly's ouster was announced while he was on vacation, a photo yesterday showed him at the vatican shaking hands with the pope. in a statement o'reilly called the allegations unfounded and said, i will always look back on my time at fox with great pride and the unprecedented success we achieved. fox news founding chairman roger ailes resigned after similar accusations. >> this is a tough decision for me. >> reporter: one of his accusers fox news star megyn kelly left the network in january. she was reportedly angered by comments o'reilly made on cbs this morning about her claims in november. >> i'm not interested in basically litigating something that is finished, that makes my
7:06 am
network look bad. >> reporter: radio host wendy walsh, a former o'reilly factor guest, who came forward this month, said she, too, was a victim of o'reilly's advances describes fox news internal culture this way. >> they are trapped in a former time, in another era, in a time when women were beautiful ornaments in work places, who got coffee and typed. >> reporter: now, yesterday, another roger ailes' accusers gretchen carlson sent out this tweet, she said the only way to end harassment is to shine a light on it. no more silencing women. o'reilly's book publisher, henry holt, says its plans have not changed. gayle? >> anna, thank you very much. cbs news contributor jody cantor is the correspondent at "the new york times." her colleagues broke the story of the settlements with five women totalling $13 million. little over two weeks ago. jodi, good morning. >> good morning. >> last week people were saying this will never happen, he makes
7:07 am
too much money. the viewers, the ratings are higher than they've ever been. what do you think was the tipping point? after that story, the advertisers dropped out. >> well, what my colleague, micha micha michael schmidt and emily steals were reporting women were continuing to come forward. last summer fox said it cleaned house, solved the problems, committed to different culture. >> they've known about these charges. >> and as recently as yesterday another woman went on the record to say that bill o'reilly had made a comment about her showing more cleavage, tried to sleep with her, et cetera. we don't know what will come out in the future. >> you don't think this is the end of the story? >> there's been a pretty steady stream of women coming out of fox since last summer talking about a sense of things that both roger ailes and bill o'reilly have said and done. >> do you think that this story, both in terms of roger ailes and bill o'reilly, will somehow change the climate in which their institution that harassment goes on and when they are not reported? >> i think it's really clear that work place culture has
7:08 am
changed, that there's a much clearer definition than there used to be. 20 years ago, 30 years ago, during the anita hill scandal a lot of people said it happens in the work place, you should brush it off. what we're seeing is a much more professional culture, in which there is usually a common definition of what's right and wrong. >> what do you make of bill o'reilly's responses? q. charlie said at the top of the broadcast it does seem very defiant, almost like he feels he is a victim here. >> that has been his line all along. but i think the question for fox is that that show does strike a moralistic tone. he styles himself -- >> a book out called "old school". >> and what the protesters were saying outside the fox building and in an airplane up in the sky is they called him a sexual predator. that is a really tough term for a brands to sustain. >> your paper reports after news of these bill o'reilly settlements, which date all the way back to 2004, that women at fox news, quote, questioned whether top executives were
7:09 am
serious about maintaining a culture based on trust and respect. was firing him enough? does it make sense for other executives who are aware of these settlements to remain? >> so the question about these settlements, is that they allow parties to come to agreement in private, right. a woman who has been wronged, a man who has been accused, they can reach a financial settlement and avoid embarrassment and trauma to them both. that means it doesn't serve the public function of within a company or within the public at large saying what's okay, what's not okay, let's agree about how to treat each other in the work place. >> gretchen carlson set this whole thing in motion because roger ailes was not going to agree to give her a 2:00 p.m. show. she sued him and got paid $20 million. as part of that she signed a confidentiality and to this day cannot talk about what happened. her legal team is asking her to be released from that. >> it's the critical mass of women essentially helping each other at fox. one woman coming forward after
7:10 am
another. and now these executives speaking out. we do see over and over again, in these situations, when women at a company come together and say we don't feel safe, we don't feel respected here, that's a very powerful force. >> was the straw that broke the camel's back, a, the advertisers fleeing or a fox executive worrying about the reputation of their news channel? >> this company was besieged on all sides by the accusations. >> thank you very much. a navy carrier group is sailing towards north korea, the country's official news agency just warned the united states it may launch a, quote, super mighty preemptive strike. the white house and pentagon said last week, that the aircraft carrier carl vinson was on its way to the region. officials say that was a mistake. >> a navy photo from last weekend shows the "carl vinson" thousands of miles away in indonesia headed south instead of north. major garret at the white house with the attempt to explain the error. good morning. >> good morning. the administration as you noted is on the defensive after a
7:11 am
series of misleading statements about the location of that aircraft carrier's strike group and how its movements did or did not fit into the strategic chess game with north korea. the white house yesterday tried to shift blame to the pentagon while allies and adversaries in asia wondered what's going on. no comment from president trump about the burgeoning crisis in north korea but his secretary of state and u.n. ambassador turned up the rhetorical heat on the volatile north korean dictator kim jong-un. >> we're reviewing all of the status of north korea both in terms of state sponsorship of terrorism, as well as all the other ways in which we can bring pressure to bear on the regime in pyongyang. >> the state department is reevaluating president george w. bush's decision to lift the state terrorism designation for north korea in 2008. an ill fated effort to deter the country's pursuit of nuclear weapons. the young leader of an impoverished nation has an
7:12 am
appetite for grandiose propaganda. a video showed kim at a concert watching a simulated video of a missile strike on the u.s. u.n. ambassador nikki haley warned of pyongyang to tread carefully telling reporters it is important that north korea know we are not trying to pick a fight, so don't try to give us one. the white house has to cope with its own mixed signals. last week the president and his press secretary said the carrier "uss carl vinson" and strike force vessels were steaming towards the korean peninsula. >> we are sending an armada, very powerful. >> when you see a carrier group steaming into an area like that, the forward presence of that is clearly through almost every instance a huge deterrence. >> reporter: yesterday, press secretary sean spicer tried to clarify his remarks. >> we were asked a question about what signal is sent. we answered the question on what signal it sent. i'm not the one who commented on timing. >> reporter: when mr. trump spoke of the armada, the vessels
7:13 am
were, in fact, headed in the opposite direction toward the australian coast. the "vinson" strike force is scheduled to arrive in waters near the korean peninsula next week. news of the carrier group's actual location triggered rid dual in south korea and -- ridicule in south korea and china. they both accused the administration of trafficking in bluster and lies. gayle? >> all right. thank you very much. defense secretary jim mattis is defending how the carl vinson's location was revealed. he made his comments in egypt on the second stop of a middle east tour. in regards to the "vinson" he said the u.s. is quote doing exactly what we said we were going to do. mattis is in israel right now after meeting with egypt's president earlier in the day. the pentagon says russian war planes flew along alaska's coast twice, the bear bombers flew about 40 miles from american territory on tuesday. no u.s. planes responded. that followed an incident the day before when a pair of
7:14 am
american f-22 fighter jets met russian bombers 100 miles off the coast and escorted the planes away from alaska. pentagon officials tell our david martin that everyone follow followed rules. federal investigators trying to find a cia worker who may be a traitor. that person is believed to be the source of top secret documents revealed by wikileaks last month. the cia and fbi are working to investigate the security breach. the stolen documents were stored in a highly secure section of the cia. jeff pegues in washington uncovered this story. jeff, good morning. >> good morning. the last several months investigators have been narrowing down the number of people who may have had access to the data. sources familiar with this investigation say that number was likely in the hundreds. this morning, the prevailing theory is that the source of the breach is a cia insider. investigators are looking for a cia employee or contractor who had physical access to the
7:15 am
material. the security breach involves the theft of cia documents and hacking tools. wikileaks went public with the material last month uncovering tools purportedly used to penetrate smartphones, smart televisions and computer systems. the organization says it obtained the cia information from former contractors who worked for u.s. intelligence. this day, the cia has not commented on the authenticity of the disclosures or on the status of the investigation. >> it's time to call out wikileaks for what it really is. >> reporter: last week cia director mike pompeo railed against wikileaks and its founder julian assange. >> assange is a narcissist who created nothing of value, relies on the dirty work of others to make himself famous. he's a fraud, a coward hiding behind a screen. >> reporter: the breach is one of the most damaging in agency history and it once again exposed vulnerabilities in how u.s. intelligence agencies gather and store sensitive information. >> now increasingly --
7:16 am
>> reporter: since edward snowden revealed u.s. secrets there have been a series of disclosures publicizing top secret sources and methods. the crown jewels of the u.s. intelligence. pompeo has vowed to fundamentally change how the cia strengthens and secures internal systems. >> all of us in the ic had a wake-up call after snowden's trenchry. unfortunately the threat has not abated. intelligence agencies are really grappling with how best to secure and protect u.s. secrets with so much sensitive information available to so many with the click of a mouse. intelligence officials say these wikileaks disclosures continue to jeopardize u.s. personnel and operations. gayle? >> jeff, thank you very much. venezuela is bracing for new violence after huge anti-government protests turned deadly. tens of thousands of people spilled into the streets around the country yesterday for what opposition leaders called the
7:17 am
mother of all marches. police used tear gas and rubber bullets against demonstrators. at least two people were killed here. hundreds were arrested. venezuela is home to the largest oil reserves in the world. but faces a deepening economic crisis. secretary of state rex tillerson says the u.s. is concerned that venezuela is not allowing opposition voices to be heard. general motors says the government illegally seized one of its plants. the secret service is widening the white house security perimeter after a series of breaches. the south lawn boundary for tourists will be pushed back about 25 yards. that's across e street. that means the sidewalk and park land between the south lawn and the ellipse is now off limits. a man jumped over the fence last month while president trump was inside the white house. the intruder spent 16 minutes on the white house grounds before agents caught him. >> that's disappointing. that's the money shot when you go to washington go to grab the black bars and take the picture. the president and his family need to be safe too.
7:18 am
>> sign of the times into you're right. >> former president george h.w. bush improving in a texas hospital. a spokesman says the 92-year-old is in high spirits but remains under observation at houston methodist hospital. mr. bush is said to be recovering from a mild case of pneumonia. he was admitted friday with a persistent cough. this is his second bout of pneumonia this year. there is no word on when he is expected to be released. people in the midwest are facing the threat of severe weather today. possible tornado damaged buildings and flipped a trailer in western iowa late last night. the storm brought heavy rain and damaging hail to kansas and nebraska. in the atlantic ocean a subtropical depression has already formed and if it grows strong enough to get a name, it would be only the second april storm in history to do so. new video this morning shows a massive asteroid more than a quarter mile wide narrowly passing earth. this is a time lapsed sat la tight image of the 400 meter wide asteroid nicknamed "the
7:19 am
rock." it zoomed by yesterday just over 1 million miles away from our planet. a soyuz space capsule carrying a russian and american blasted off from kazakhstan expected to dock at the international space station in about two hours. nasa astronaut jack fisher is making his first space flight. the soyuz normally carries three members but russia cut back to save money. richard simmons is back in the spotlight after years of staying out of the public eye. ahead why he was hospitalized and his new message that tries to help others improve their,,,,

boirl -- cost bill o'reilly his job at fox news. the new york times headline this morning says, the lights out for the channel's biggest star. the paper broke the story early this month that o'reilly and fox paid about $13 million to settle complaints by five women. >> last night, his name vanished from the show. he was a fixture for more than 20 years. the times reports the sexual harassment claims and settlements go back to 2004. about 50 advertisers fled the show. the parent company of fox news said yesterday, after a thorough and careful review of the allegations, bill o'reilly will not be returning to the fox news channel. >> o'reilly said in a statement, quote it's tremendously disheartening that we part ways due to completely unfounded charges. i will always look back on my time at fox with great pride. last year founding ceo roger ailes was removed for similar
8:03 am
reasons. one of his accusers, fox news star megyn kelly wrote about it in her book. we asked him about the allegations when he was here with james patterson when they were promoting their children's book. >> megyn kelly has a new book out. have you read it? >> no. >> you're in it. >> it seems if i'm in a book -- i want to see what she's saying about me. >> what is she saying about me? i'm trying to stay out half that kind of stuff. it doesn't pertain to my life. i wish her well. she's a very smart woman. you know, it's a very tough book environment. we'll see. we'll see if people respond to it. i have not read it. but it's not a diss. it just came out. so -- you know, i'll look at it. >> bill, it just came out. but you know people, you can get the book early if you wanted. >> no, they lock that thing
8:04 am
down. >> she's not going to be on your show to talk about it? >> we'll see if she's on the show or not. >> it's called -- >> i want to be candid here. i'm not that interested in this. >> no? >> in sexual harassment, you're not interested in sexual harassment? >> i'm not interested in basically litigating something that's finished that makes my network look bad, okay? i'm not interested in making my network look bad at all. that doesn't interest me one bit. >> is that what she's doing? >> i don't know. but i'm not going to even bother with it. >> kelly left the channel in january. we have a media reporter at "the hollywood reporter." marisa, good morning. >> good morning. >> bill o'reilly is leaving after signing a mega deal with fox to continue. even though these charges have dated back to 2004. what remaining questions are there at fox? >> well, i think that the fact that i signed him to the new contract, knowing that these allegations were going to come
8:05 am
out, obviously there were earlier allegations that everybody knew about. and know that they were doing this -- there were settlements being paid after roger ailes' exit under the same sexual harassment cloud produced a lot of anger internally. and made women there question whether the murdochs were committed to a workplace based on respect as they said. >> do you believe they will feel that now after this decision? >> i do. i do. and i think the women who were afraid to come forward because they never thought roger ailes would be ousted had a new voice within the company. >> what are you hearing about the role that women at the company played behind the scenes? >> well, they were -- they were really disheartened. there were people described it to me as outrage, that the revelations came out post ailes. they obviously renewed his deal knowing that this story was coming of it, so they made a calculation then they could weather this.
8:06 am
i think that is what produced a lot of the anger internally. >> do you think it was more than just the advertisers dropping out, because they dropped out from bill o'reilly's show, but fox was still getting money from advertisers. correct? >> they were not taking any real financial hit on advertising. because the advertisers were just moving their ads to different shows on fox. but the stock price did slip. the stock price slipped on perception, perception that the house is not in order over there. when you have internal rest is something they worry about. >> so the tipping point in your judgment? >> i think it was a combination of the women inside the network, not just women. but the people inside the network that were concerned about this and outraged about this. and also the perception on wall street that produced the 6% stock dip since these revelations came out. >> how about "the new york times" piece that revealed that they were -- they had paid those women. >> yeah. that's what's produced a lot of
8:07 am
the anger. that this was still going on after the murdochs had put out that statement when they made the settlement with gretchen carlson. >> how do you think fox will do without bill o'reilly? >> well, they're a strong brand and they have a monopoly on conservatism on cable television. and the political junkies are just glued to this right now with the early tumultuous change. >> was there a difference between rupert murdoch and the two sons in making the decision? >> they all came to agreement on tuesday i was told. but the three -- the three of them. but yes, there was early separation. day light between rupert and lachlan and james and then james and lachlan were aligned and then the three of them -- >> then we heard james and lachlan's wives also weighed in. >> exactly. exactly. >> marisa, thank you for being here. >> thank you. biologists in virginia are
