7:02 am
scrambling to contain the chartly fire. the fast mosting brushfire that started saturday. >> all that -- >> jumps over the defenders to pick up the first. >> the bills pull off the biggest nfl upset in 23 years. >> and all that matters -- >> when he tells you something, do you trust him? >> of course i trust what the american president tells me. >> do you trust him? >> yes. >> on "cbs this morning." >> we thought we would never see it. >> the first victory on the tour in five-plus years to get his 80th career victory. >> i can't believe i pulled this off after what the season's gone through and -- it's just hard to believe i won the tour. >> this morning's eye opener is presented by toyota. let's go places.
7:03 am
tiger wood, guys, it seems is back. the crowd was very with him yesterday. >> there were throngs of people. many of them said they've never seen anything like it. >> he did work hard. >> traveling back to new york, there were people, you could hear it in conversations all the way, tiger, tiger, tiger. he hadn't won yet. >> he's got a big fan club. welcome to "cbs this morning." we have a second allegation of sexual misconduct against judge kavanaugh this morning. it raises new questions about his supreme court nomination. one of his yale classmates tells the new yorker magazine that kavanaugh exposed himself to her at a party about 35 years ago. she wants an fbi investigation. kavanaugh says the accusation is a smear. the authors of the article say no eyewitnesses have confirmed he was even at the party. >> the story follows christine blasey ford's decision to testify at a senate hearing on thursday about her claim that kavanaugh sexually assaulted her
7:04 am
in high school. nancy cordes is on capitol hill. nancy, good morning. >> good morning. the second accuser went public, just after christine blasey ford officially accepted the senate judiciary committee's invitation to testify about her claim on thursday. kavanaugh denies both allegations. but the calls for the outside investigation have grown louder and some senators wonder whether his nomination can now survive. deborah ramirez lives in colorado and has worked with victims of domestic violence. according to the new yorker article, when she and kavanaugh were first-year students at yale, he, quote, exposed himself at a drunken dormitory party. thrust his penis in her face and caused heard ed her to touch i her consent as she pushed away. her memory contains gaps because she had been drinking at the time of the alleged incident. but some of her classmates confirmed to ronnen farrow and
7:05 am
jane meyer they were told at the time about it while others said they had zero recollection. kavanaugh suggested this alleged event from 35 years ago did not happen. the people who knew me then know that this did not happen. california democrat feinstein is now calling for thursday's hearing with christine blasey ford to be canceled. while other senate democrats called on kavanaugh to withdraw due to a pattern of conduct, saying it's time for a new nominee. republicans laid low. they had been pushing for a quick confirmation just a few hours earlier. >> unless there's something more, no, i'm not going to ruin judge kavanaugh's live over this. >> reporter: this was vice president pence on saturday. >> i believe that judge kavanaugh will soon be justice brett kavanaugh and take his seat on the supreme court. >> reporter: as for ford, kavanaugh's first accuser -- >> i believe her completely. >> reporter: ford's sister-in-law says it's a
quote
7:06 am
difficult time. but she's prepared to testify. >> facts matter to her. and so she's being careful to make sure this process will be fair. and i don't think that's too much to ask. >> reporter: amid all of this, the lawyer, michael avenatti, says he has a client who will go public this week with more information about kavanaugh and his friends plying girls with alcohol and sexually assaulting them in high school. republicans say their ver swey' skeptical about those claims until they see more but avenatti tells me his client is very credible. norah. >> all right, nancy, thank you. kellyanne conway serves as counselor to the president. joining us from washington, only on "cbs this morning." good morning. >> good morning, norah. >> should deborah ramirez, the new kavanaugh accuser, be allowed to testify? >> if she would like to, she can certainly contact the chairman
7:07 am
of the senate judiciary committee. they have a process in place. obviously they've mailed tremendous unpress dentsed accommodations for miss ford to testify on thursday. judge kavanaugh has been willing to testify publicly to what he has said privately under oath from day one. less than 24 hours after he was made aware of the identity of miss ford, he said he would raise histestify add to his 30-plus hours of testimony. i thought that his comment last night about the second so-called accuser is incredibly instructor. he's calling this a smear campaign. indeed, starting to feel like a vast left wing conspiracy. "the new york times" said they interviewed dozens of people over the last couple weeks, trying to verify the second accusation. they couldn't go ford with the reporting. not because they're supportive of president trump's nominee but because they have some
7:08 am
standards. this fact, "the new york times" also reports that ramirez was asking people if they remembered and telling them she couldn't be sure either. i know there's pent-up demand for women to get their day, women who have been sexually r harassed and sexually assaulted. i'm very aggrieved for all of them. are we going to put decades of pent-up demand for women to feel whole on one man's shoulders? what exactly is the standard for ruining one man's life based on decades of allegations that have nothing to do with him? visiting upon other men, including in the media? >> that to me then, kellyanne, begs the question. you have two accusers. clearly a lot of questions. should there be an investigation in the confirmation process until these accusers have a chance to have their day in court? you heard michael av netty now says there's a third accuser who's coming forward this week. should the confirmation process be put on hold? >> it has been put on hold, gayle. it's been put on hold for weeks
7:09 am
now because senator feinstein sat on the first accuser's letter and then someone in the democratic committee breached the anonymity and divulged the identity of this woman, who wanted to remain private. >> should it continue to be put on hold? now you have two people and the third coming. should it continue to be put on hold? >> let's make very clear, the third woman is also from high school. i just wanted to say this may be the first time we've ever heard of allegations against someone as a teenager who did not prey upon women thusly as they became powerful. as you know full well at cbs news, it's when men become powerful and think they can use women and interrupt their careers if they want to for their own predatory proclivities, that then they start preying upon women. the allegations against judge kavanaugh are all from when he was a teenager and then we're supposed to believe he's a judge of a dozen years hiring female
7:10 am
law clerks to boot and he's alone with them plenty and yet -- they supported his nomination. this is all very relevant because everything is being said is not -- does not comport with judge kavanaugh, that all these women who have dealt with him in situation, throughout his career have said about him -- >> kelly -- >> the hearing is thursday. if people want to testify, should come and testify. the committee has been very accommodating. all the democrats, every single one who is calling for delay, delay, obstruction, already said they wouldn't vote for judge kavanaugh. this is politics. >> i'd like to get your sense of something the president said. you spent your career learning about women voters and women consumers. the president in response to this dr. ford's allegation said i have no doubt if the attack on dr. ford was as bad as she said, charges would have been immediately filed. based on your understanding of women, is it something that happens often, that women have a sexual assault encounter and then don't report it? >> well, i've worked with women
7:11 am
in -- who have been sexual assaulted in my prior career and i've worked with women who had been abused. i can tell you some women do not come forward because they fear not being believed and i'll tell yowl a lot of other women don't come forward, john, because of other women who make false accusations. so it cuts both ways. there are plenty of people who say, well, they wouldn't believe me because so-and-so like the duke lacrosse accuser who ruined those four boys' lives. thank god in their adult lives they're thriving. there are many different reasons. i think we should take everything the president said last week and be fair to the president. he has said from the beginning dr. ford should be heard. he has said from the beginning through me and through his own voice that we should have a process in the senate judiciary committee so that dr. ford can be heard and judge kavanaugh can be heard and this thursday, they will both do exactly that. he's been very respectful. >> do you believe that deborah ramirez is confused and made this up? >> i have no idea. what i believe is what i read, norah. which is that she has said she
7:12 am
can't be sure. she has said there are gaps in her own knowledge that she was -- she was inebriated as well. she can come as tell that story. i do think it's very circular, though, to have a new yorker story come out with much thinner evidence than ronnen farrow is used to havingness a in his art. >> you, kellyanne -- you don't believe any delay in coming forward about this in anyway challenging the veracity of the claims? just the delay alone does not raise any questions? >> it does not, not to me. >> despite what the president said? >> i take these allegations seriously, as does the president who said let them testify. >> he says no doubt if the attack happened, she would have reported it immediately. >> why don't you put up everything? be fair to him. this president is defending his nominee.
7:13 am
that nominee needs to defend himself against these allegation. why does it not matter to anyone that judge kavanaugh has said unequivocally and categorically these allegations are false? he thinks the latest ones show a pattern of a smear campaign, and he has said from the beginning he wasn't at the party in question 36 years ago in maryland. all that has to matter. this president wants them both to testify in the senate judiciary committee, a setup process where they both can. i just don't think one man's shoulders should bear decades of the me too movement. >> thank you, kellyanne. president trump will be among more than 130 world leaders expected to attend meetings at the united nations this week. tomorrow, the president will deliver his biggest speech of the week when he addresses the general assembly. he is expected to talk about protecting u.s. sovereignty and the need for other countries to do their part in protecting global stability. british prime minister theresa may will raise important global issues at the u.n. like the iran
7:14 am
nuclear deal and the use of chemical weapons by russia. britain accuses russia of poisoning four people in salisbury, england. only on "cbs this morning," we visited the prime minister's office, or i should say official resident, at 10 downing street in london for her only interview ahead of the general assembly. >> when you talk to president trump, does he listen? >> yes, we have very good discussions. the point of the special relationship between the united kingdom and united states in a sense is we can have those frank and open discussions. when we disagree, we can say why we disagree. at the same time, we cooperate on so much else, which is crucial importance to us. clearly security and defense being key to that. >> is there an instance in which you think he listened to you and his behavior changed? >> well, i think that we have -- we have a number of conversations about these issues. i think we have -- we've been
7:15 am
talking about issues around trade. about the importance of nato. we were able to talk openly about the fact -- he reconfirmed the american commitment to nato. >> when he tells you something, do you trust him? >> of course i listen to what the president tells me. >> do you trust him? >> yes. we -- we work together. we have a special relationship. this is two people reflecting as leaders of their two countries, the relationship those two countries have and have built up over a number of years. and as we work together, let me give you a very good example. i spoke to president trump after the salisbury attack took place. he said he would expel russian intelligence officers. he did it. >> you also, it was reported, asked him to raise it with putin
7:16 am
in helsinki. he didn't. what do you make of that? >> he raised a number of issues raised in that discussion. >> is it a new opportunity -- >> well, how can i -- i think vladimir putin is in no doubt about the view that we have about what happened on the streets of salisbury. >> i just wondered whether it could have been amplified by the american president saying given the special relationship, built around common defense in churchill's original speech? >> i think dispensing officers sends the message clearly. >> hiow high up? does it go all the way to putin? >> we believe certainly the two individuals identified offices of gru and the decision to undertake this was taken outside of the gru and at a senior level. >> could be putin? >> we believe it was at a senior
7:17 am
level. >> who's responsible for the state of the relationship between the international community and russia? >> it's russian action that is leading to the international community's response. >> the reason say that is the president, president trump said we're both to blame when asked that same question. >> i think -- what i am reacting to is the uk prime minister. i think what the international community reacts to including the united states after salisbury was actions that russia had taken on the streets of the uk. >> has iran been holding up its end of the bargain? the 2015 deal? >> well, this is -- the question is of course -- i do have a difference of opinion with president trump because we believe that it should stay in place and others involved in putting that deal together believe it should stay in place. we do agree with the united states that there are other aspects of iran's behavior that we need to be dealing with. so looking at the issue of ballistic missiles.
7:18 am
looking at the way in which iran is acting in the region to destabilize the region. we need to address those issues too. we need to ensure we have a nuclear deal in place that prevents them from getting a nuclear weapon. >> by your assessment, iran is keeping up its end of the bargain? >> from what we see, we believe it is doing that. >> how can you make progress on something like chemical weapons when deals can be just walked away from like the jcpoa? >> the important thing about the jcpoa, about that nuclear deal, is it is still in place. the united states has taken a particular view on how to deal with this issue. that's a view which we disagree with. we take a different view. but that deal is still in place. >> lots of news there. >> i'll say. >> she did seem to have a little bit of a moment when you said do you trust the president. first she didn't answer the question. had to rephrase it in a way she cocked her head, well, of course i trust him.
7:19 am
did you feel that in that moment? >> i did. she was working very hard to not say anything critical of the president. we'll have this later in the show but what's amazing is she's in the middle of trying to restructure the entire economy of england. she's got a huge job on her hands. >> important interview, thank you. airline passengers could soon find relief from ever shrinking pearl spa a good monday morning. we are starting off the day with areas of low clouds and fog. we will see sunshine and much more a -- warmer conditions. red flag warning in effect for the north bay hills. high fire dangers for the north bay hills today through tomorrow. the highs today are about 70 in san francisco. that is where we should be this time of year. 84 for a high in napa. we warm up for tuesday and especially for wednesday.

7:34 am
drugging and molesting former temple university administrator andrea constand in his home back in 2004. cosby's criminal case began nearly three years ago. the first trial you may remember in june 2017 ended in a mistrial after a jury failed to reach a unanimous verdict. the judge could sentence cosby to as many as 10 years in prison for each of the three counts he was convicted of for a possible total of 30 years behind bars. although state guidelines call for a base 22 to 36-month sentence. cosby's lawyers are expected to request to keep the 81-year-old at home because of his age and health problems. cosby has been on house arrest since april. now the comedian and entertainer is about to become the first celebrity, the first celebrity sentenced in the #metoo era. >> all right, jericka, thank you. a growing number of alleged sexual assault survivors are publicly sharing their stories. the outpouring is in response to

twitter this weekend using the #whyididntreport. among them actress alyssa milano whose tweet has been shared more than 16,000 times. i was sexually assaulted twice, once when i was a teenager. i never filed a police report and it took me 30 years to tell my parents. many listed reasons why they kept quiet. because i knew it was his word against mine. because i'm still afraid. psychologist dawn hughes. >> rape, sexual assault and victimization in general is vastly underreported to authorities. >> 70% do not report rapes to police. 70% know their attacker. that can make it more difficult to come guarforward. >> fear that you won't be taken seriously, then you'll be the target and you'll be shamed and humiliated. sometimes that analysis is just

too much to bear for a victim. >> reporter: they are hoping it will empower the next generation. >> i'm hoping the conversation we're having now would enable teenage girls today to know that they do need to turn to authorities instead of my generation just living with this horror. >> we should note that since that #whyididntreport said it saw a 42% increase in phone calls. that's compared to an average friday or saturday. >> that's why this story is so important, norah, that you're putting it in that perspective. anybody who has been through this totally understand why women do not come forward. especially the president's tweet over the weekend who said, why didn't she come forward? why didn't her loving parents say anything? because you're afraid you won't be believed, you're ashamed. on some level women think it's their fault, which absolutely

isn't true. >> and being affected by that tweet, it brought out a deep response. >> some say my voice does not matter, what happened to me does not matter. that's what's changing is that my voice does matter. golf fans finally got the tiger woods victory they've been waiting for. what it means for the future of the sport. if you're on the go, subscribe to our podcast app or wherever you like to download your podcasts. here's what's happening in your world in less than 20 minutes. you're watching "cbs this morning." stories and what's happening in your world in less than 20 minutes. you're watching "cbs this morning." what?! he's gonna slap some clips in your hair, give you a bob and then he's gonna move to boca raton. but you're gonna look amazing. ok. there are multiples on the table:

8:01 am
public after christine blasey ford accepted the judiciary committee's invitation to testify. >> should debra ramirez, the kavanaugh accuser, be allowed to testify. ify.f she would like to, they lve a process in place. this is starting to feel like a vast left wing conspiracy. >> when you talk to president trump, does he listen? >> yes,e have very good discussions. spespecial relationship between the united kingdom and united states is that we can have those frank and open discussions. the sentencing hearing under by that the courthouse. ehere was a line of people thaing to get inside, including some women who accused bill cosby of sexual assault in the ualt. woosince he first began his beenric career, tiger woods has been the preeminent face of golf. .fter yesterday's triumph, it appears to be that tiger woods rableck. look at this this adorable kid decked out in an umpire he i ngiform. andas everything, he's calling balls and strikes. y. takes that job seriously. > i like it. i like him. at isy gosh. he's my hero.

that's unbelievable. >> this is just priceless. >> i'm john dickerson >> i'm john dickerson with gayle king and norah o'donnell. reports say deputy attorney general rod rosenstein is on his way out. >> he is the number-two man at the justice department. he's either resign organize being fired, we've heard both. three days after he reportedly offered to wiretap president trump last year following the firing of fbi director james comey. paul paula reid is here with the significance of this move. what can you tell us? >> sources have confirmed that rod rosenstein is on his try the white house where he expects to be fired. there are reports he's going to offer his resignation but i have not confirmed that inside the justice department. so the question is whether or not this will happen, if he will either resign or be fired. this comes days after reports that he suggested wiretapping the president or trying to use the 25th amendment to oust him.
8:03 am
but my reporting, i talked to about half a dozen sources on friday from people who were in the room during this meeting last year and they all said yes, he mentioned wiretapping the president but he was joking, he said it sarcastically. >> clearly a joke they said. >> yes and if you talk to the deputy attorney general, he makes jokes when talking about tense or important subjects. i didn't talk to a single source who remembered him talking about the 25th amendment to oust the president. anyone should be suspect of the idea that attorney general jeff sessions would have supported any effort to get two-thirds of congress out. there's a lot of skepticism about the reports. >> rod rosenstein is in charge of the russia investigation. what about if rosenstein leaves? >> if rosenstein leaves the investigation go to noel francisco. he is the solicitor general. you get a new job, you get a new responsibility so noel francisco would be the one overseeing the
8:04 am
powell is investigation. >> does it matter whether he resigns or is fired? >> i don't think it does. he's gone and the big question is who is overseeing the powell is investigation. to whom does robert mueller have to go to approve anything and everything he does? hi will be the person that has the ultimate decision over what to do with powell special couns report. do you pass it to congress? make it public? it's a huge job. >> and does noel francisco fire mueller as some people suggested the president might want and rosenstein said he wouldn't unless he had cause so that's an open question. >> i've asked noel that and he refuses to answer. >> probably still will, paula, thank you. the senate judiciary committee's top democrat says the confirmation of supreme court nominee brett kavanaugh should be postponed. that comes after the "new yorker" published a woman's claim that kavanaugh exposed himself to her during a drunken college party. >> kavanaugh says this ledalleg
8:05 am
different 35 years ago did not happen. that is smear plain and simple. >> earlier we spoke the new yorker's chief washington correspondent jane mayer w eer co-wrote the article with ronan farrow. we asked about the sources who could not confirm that kavanaugh was at the party in question the "new yorker" admits they were unable to confirm with other eyewitnesss that brett kavanaugh was present at this party. why did you print this story? >> we've got a woman who was a classmate of his at yale who went on the record to describe her own experience here and when we started to do more reporting on it, we found another classmate who remembers hearing about it that night or the next day. we compared the accounts of these two people who have never spoken to each other, deborah ramirez and the person who heard
8:06 am
about it that night. they were identical. it seemed there was something to this. we started checking further and we found classmates had been talking about that for weeks and months since july. there had been an e-mail chain of jail classmates of kavanaugh talking about will this thing come out long before christine blasey ford came forward. so we felt this was important. >> did she want to talk or she talked about after being contacted by the "new yorker"? >> she didn't initiate this. >> we got in touch with her. she thought it over for six days as she sort of searched her memories to make sure she was confident of it and when she felt she was and she retained an attorney, she said she wanted to talk to us and tell her story.
8:07 am
and what she is saying is quite forthright that she was inebriated that night as she says was kavanaugh and the other kids. they were freshmen at yale and she's saying that she thinks the fbi needs to come in and investigate this. >> and she says there are gaps in her memory. are you okay with her story knowing-the-she said i was very drunk and there are big gaps in my memory? >> the story is very transparent about what she does and doesn't remember but -- so yes, i am 100% comfortable with the story. i've done a lot of reporting on it, talked to numerous other people and the fact that kavanaugh's friends who have signed a letter for him are also the people she identifies as being in the party it's not surprising if they don't want to say more. they're basically saying they don't remember. >> kaek -- sorry, i'm concerned
8:08 am
about time. >> i think at a certain point -- there are things people won't say to a reporter that they may not say to the fbi. >> i hear you. kellyanne conway was on our program earlier, she says this is a left wing conspiracy plain and simple. how do you respond to that? >> it sounds like what she always says. there's nobody who say -- including brett kavanaugh's witnesses at the white house and he sent for us to interview, i talked to them and i said is politics motivatinger? these were kavanaugh's witnesses. >> where did the corroborating witness get the information about this if that person doesn't know ram sflez. >> he remembers it from. >> he was in the same dorm, same
8:09 am
building on yale's old campus and he remembers it clearly. >> did he see it. >> no. as i've said he heard it from someone who was there around as i've said we interviewed him and i said to him are you sure that it was brett kavanaugh? he said i am 100% sure. >> since your piece yesterday, have other women contacted you? >> no, i haven't heard from anybody else. i heard from somebody else at kwliel identified the other people at the party and says they were there but i haven't had a chance to follow up yet. i don't think it's a woman. >> got it. >> a school bus driver in indiana is accused of letting kids take control of the vehicle. the video showing the driver coaching a child

it's about 170 million miles from earth. a scientist said he was disappointed with the blurred image that first came from the rover, but the team noted it had been taken mid-hop. a $40 million program called ai for humanitarian action aims to speed up action in four areas, disaster response, needs of children, refugees and displaced people. microsoft president brad smith is here for an interview you'll only see on "cbs this morning." good morning, brad. >> good morning. >> explain how this works, how it is ai addressed these humanitarian challenges. >> it's really a powerful tool. you take something like sudden infant death syndrome. thousands of children die every year but we don't fully understand the cause. using more data and machine learning, we should be able to
8:33 am
make faster progress by working with nonprofits. take something like a famine, being better able to predict where famines will work out, using data we can see where to move food to people so we can avoid the deaths we read about too often. those are just two areas where data expertise and data science can be more effective. >> does the money come to just buying more machines and more people to analyze the data? is that where this begins? >> fundamentally we're teaming people with nonprofits. we have great expertise with new technology, providing them with technology and technology tools, and data science experts. we'll provide them with financial assistance. i think in many ways the people, the expertise, the technology itself will be more powerful. >> brad, you said that we really need to wake up to -- when you think about the benefits and the perils. a lot of people are so very afraid of ai. what concerns do you have? >> well, it is a powerful
8:34 am
technology. we need to ensure that as we power computers, in effect, to make decisions that have always been made by human beings that these are decisions made ethically. take something like facial recognition. it can help identify criminals, it might find a lost child, but it has error rates -- >> i heard it doesn't work so well with people of color and women. that's a problem. >> it is. error rates are higher, so we and others are working to reduce the bias. we don't want to see this technology deployed before it's ready. we don't want to see it deployed in ways where it might, for example, discourage people from going to a public space, expressing their views. it's important that there be rules of the road. only if there are common rules for those of us in the united states and around the world are we really going to ensure that this technology is used in a way that i think the public is going to feel comfortable. >> we talk about artificial intelligence. "wired s "wired" came out with a piece
8:35 am
that said only 20% of the ai researchers are women. what does that lack of diversity mean for ai development? >> i think it's a huge issue. because we need to ensure that artificial intelligence works for everybody. and it's really a two-part solution. i think in part you need data sets. if you're looking at photos, you have to have photos of everybody, but i think your point is also spot on. we need the people who create artificial intelligence for the world to reflect the diversity of the world. if they don't, they're probably going to miss some problems that we actually need to catch. >> can i just pull back for a minute, too, and talk about microsoft, your company? i recently sat down with the fbi director, chris wray, and one of the interesting things he told -- i don't think many people realize this, i know you realize this, that china is our biggest counter-intelligence priority with the hacking. how is microsoft dealing with that and have you seen that with china? >> cybersecurity is almost job
8:36 am
one these days for every consumer, every business, every government on the planet. that's why we're rolling out new security features even today. there are plenty of governments that are worried about each other these days. i don't think that this is a problem that one can use to point at a single government. i think it's one we need to think about from a global perspective. we need stronger technology, we need people to implement the technology we provide, and we also need stronger international laws in this space as well. >> picking up on norah's question, the associated press says the microsoft has emerged like an internet cop by avoiding critical resorts to russian hackers. okay, you've got the russians but what about the chinese, and are you the first line of defense before even the government gets there? >> we take action as soon as we see a problem. we announced action last month and that was a russian group because that was a problem that we saw. we've been vocal in the past with respect to other countries. i do think your broader point is
8:37 am
an important one. i think in the world today, technology companies as a whole are a first line of defense. but security engineers who work at our company, we have 3,500 of them, are the first responders when things go wrong. it has fundamentally changed the role we need to play and really elevated the responsibility we need to fulfill. >> really interesting. brad smith, so great to have you here. keep us updated on the ai. >> thank you. an ohio town is ringing in the holiday season early this year for a very special cause. hundreds of people outside cincinnati held a christmas celebration yesterday for two-year-old broeddy allen. his parents learned his brain cancer has spread. we visited the hometown where the community delivered some much-needed holiday cheer. >> you come home at night and the whole street is lit up.

it's amazing to know it's all for brody. >> reporter: the season for giving is already underway in one cincinnati suburb. on sunday two-year-old brody allen celebrated christmas. he threw candy to crowds of people wearing santa hats and waving signs. >> merry christmas. >> reporter: last month brody's parents, shilo and todd, learned their son's brain cancer had advanced and he only had two months to live. >> they go through all the questions like, we can do radiation, but radiation will just destroy him because he's two. clinical trials. they can move forward, but it won't really give us any more time. we wanted to bring him home. >> reporter: during a difficult night, todd played an old black and white version of "rudolph the red-nosed reindeer" on his phone. >> it actually calmed him.
8:39 am
wau watching him in that moment, i said, okay, bud, we're going to do christmas. >> reporter: the community responded. neighbors put up lights, santas and snowglobes on their front lawn. >> reporter: do you think about the idea wouldn't it be great if everybody treated each other like this all the time? >> i think they do. we just don't see it. >> reporter: but the support didn't stop there. >> this has been beautiful. romp christmas cards started arrive at the allen home. >> reporter: what has this done for you as a family? >> it's renewed my faith in people. >> reporter: mckenzie allen is his older sister. you're the ones perhaps suffering more than he is. >> he carries us in a way. he keeps us happy. he keeps us in a good mood. >> reporter: and this community kept brody happy on a warm autumn day by making it a very

8:45 am
i am a caa girl. very, very proud to be represented by your firm. so we begin, michael ovitz. there is always full disclosure. i was very fascinated by your book because you were really at one point considered powerful, the most feared and the most hated. now, i know nobody likes to be called the most hated. but were you okay with being called the most powerful and the most feared, and what role did you play in any of those characterizations of yourself? >> you said it perfectly, gayle, there was a role. >> a role. >> i played a role. i made a decision that the buck had to stop with me. we had 1,400 clients. there were a lot of executives in the company and somebody had to make the trains run on time. so the decision was made to go out and to create a -- someone who dealt with authority and was interested in getting things
8:46 am
done. that does not always make for a popular camper. >> i was very surprised, too, michael, on how candid you were. you actually named names, you took numbers, you also talked about the mistakes you've made. you say this. you always wanted to make clients think they're your friends, but remember, they're not your friends, they're your clients, and in the end the clients were loyal and the friend betrayed you. you named the friends who betrayed you, but people said you also did your share of betraying, too. >> i think that's fair. in the course of what i did, i think it's impossible to please everybody at the same time. >> it's more, michael, than pleasing everybody. you did things on both sides that people could say were ruthless, ambitious and just outright wrong. >> unequivocally. we went out to win. when you go out to win, you make certain sacrifices. it's not always pleasant when you go out to win. but winning at all costs was something that was critical to me. >> i thought what was interesting, too, was the
8:47 am
