seven united states marines and four soldiers are missing after a helicopter crash. >> the army chop per went down east of pensacola. search and rescue crews found debris several hours later. david martin is gathering sources from the pentagon. david, good morning. >> good morning. weather may have been a factor in this accident since there was a dense fog advisory out for that part of the florida panhandle last night. two black hawk helicopter flown by crews from the louisiana guard were conducting a nighttime training vision carrying marines from a special operations unit from camp lejeune, north carolina. at about 8:30 p.m. last night one of those helicopters with four crewmen and seven marines aboard went missing over water. because of the fog, it tooker isser took searchers several hours
7:04 am
before they could locate any debris from the wreckage. the debris finally wash aid shore. the search for survivors is now going on but the fog is still hampering that search and they may have to wait for the sun to burn off some of that fog before they can find the main body of debris from this accident. but right now what we know is that 11 u.s. servicemen are missing. >> david, very sad story this morning. thank you. hillary clinton insists she followed all of the rules when using private e-mail for state department business but the former secretary of state is facing new questions this morning after breaking her silence about the story. she told reporters yesterday that she deleted thousands of messages. nancy cordes attended hillary clinton's news conference. nancy, good morning. >> good morning. they say they're happy she broke her isilence after nine days but
7:05 am
the republicans have more questions about the e-mails she deleted. >> i opt for veep jens to use my personal e-mail account which was allowed by the state department. >> reporter: she told hundreds of reporters she wanted to simply streamline when she used a private e-mail account as secretary of state. >> looking back it would have been better to use two several phones and two e-mails accounts. >> reporter: they want to know why it took her two years to release the statements. >> she said part of the reason why she didn't obey the law was convenience, but i don't think convenience should trump national security. >> it should not, not be up to her or any public official to delete e-mails while on the job. >> and they wonder why she deleted half of her 60,000 e-mails in december. clinton said it's because they were personal. >> e-mails about planning chelsea's wedding as well as yoga routines family vacations.
7:06 am
>> republican trey gowdy chairs the committee investigating the benghazi house attacks. >> the bottom line is she's the seoul survivor of those. you don't get to grade your own papers. which is why i think we need to determine what's a public record and what's not. >> speaker john boehner said secretary clinton didn't hand over her e-mails out of the goodness of her heart. she was torsed to by effective yoef sight by congress. >> how can you -- >> first of all you would have to request that question to every single federal employee because the way the system works, the federal employee the individual wlrks they have one device, two devices, three devices, how many addresses, they make the decision. >> gowdy admitted he doesn't
7:07 am

7:08 am
reinforces really bad narratives about her and i destroyed 31,000 e-mails that no one will every look at again, again, raises a lot of question. they're uncomfortable again for democrats, not just republicans. >> what was the decision and who was involved in the decision? >> this is the question. the 31,000 she turned over to the state department. the other 30,000 she says were not related to business at all. none of us has any basis to judge that. she's saying trust me, i'm hillary clinton, i'm in it for the right reasons. >> how does she get past it john? can she get past it? >> she's obviously going to have all a presidential campaign a lot of democrats will love her. she'll likely be the democratic nominee but i think the question going forward is how will that play in the general election.
7:09 am
there are a lot of people in the country wo look back on the 1990s and say it's great. we like prosperity. but that was a contentious period. involved in a lot of melodrama psycho drama. people are queasy about that and leery about it. this kind of thing just revives it, i think, going forward. >> presidential campaigns, successful ones, are about the future. >> yes. >> this is she is essentially being sucked back in and she hasn't announced it. >> that's exactly right norah. that picture yesterday was a picture out of yesterday. it just called to mind we're now having discussions again incredibly about the rose law firm billing records and whitewater and what are the parallels to previous clinton scandals and pseudo scandals. those are not the conversations you want to have. >> john heideman grade to have

7:12 am
he said he was the chapter's second black member and believed progress was being made. >> now what do you think? >> i don't know that we've made too many strides against racism. i think it's just covert. if you just pretend, next thing you know your kids sitting on a bus singing the song because you never dealt with it all yourself. ♪ i'm going to keep on walking keep on talking ♪ >> reporter: over the last several days these students have gotten an education they can't learn in any classroom. sae headquarters says it is investigating reported incidents at other campuses. university officials here who are conducting their own investigation say as of right now they do not believe that song originated here at the university of oklahoma. charlie? >> jericka, thanks. they call a letter from

7:16 am
but the jury has seventy a message to musicians. sometimes inspiration can cross a line and become plagiarism. marvin gaye's children left the court feeling vindicated. the jury agreed with the gay family's claim that the 2013 mega hit "blurred line tss" infringed on their father's up." both say they were inspired by gay's music but denied they -- >> it's the heart and soul of pharrell williams and no one else. >> they released a statement saying, quote, it sets a horrible precedent for music and creativity going forward. some in the music industry say it could create a new standard when judging similar cases. >> the one and only part of a
7:17 am
kpoem sigs that's protected by copyright is the melody of the song. we're now able to look at lawsuits that are based on sort of the inspiration and feel of previous songs that could potentially open up the door for all cases. >> reporter: the try lasted more than a week. both williams and thick testified. jurors never heard verlgss of either song. instead they were told to focus solely on the sheet music. experts called mao kol gists compared note by note but the jury decided to focus on sim laifrt and phrases, the hook, and the lyrics. >> this was about the copying of melody, of harmony. it was about the copying of base lines and keyboards. that's what the jury found. >> reporter: and with that decision, some think the jurors hit the wrong note. >> i understand there are
7:18 am
similarities but i also understand the notes are different. the songs are not the same. you know no one opens the genre, no one own as groove. >> neither side is declaring this case over. the attorney for thicke and williams says he's considering many legal options while the gayle family's lairs will ask to block sales of "blurred lines" until an agreement is made on how to share the future money. gayle? >> thank you, anthony. winter is beginning to ease much of its grip on the country this morning. hip hip hooray on that. farther up the cape icebergs dot the shoreline. you're looking at live pictures. but the huge chunks of ice are not expected to last very long. it has certainly been a winter that few of us will forget. ahead we'll look at winter's worst moments in case you were

wvo: caring for someone with alzheimer's means i am a lot of things. i am his guardian. i am his voice. so i asked about adding once-daily namenda xr to his current treatment for moderate to severe alzheimer's. it works differently. when added to another alzheimer's treatment, like aricept® it may improve overall function and cognition. and may slow the worsening of symptoms for a while. vo: namenda xr doesn't change how the disease progresses. it shouldn't be taken by anyone allergic to memantine, or who's had a bad reaction to namenda xr or its ingredients.
7:22 am
before starting treatment, tell their doctor if they have or ever had a seizure disorder difficulty passing urine liver, kidney, or bladder problems, and about any medications they're taking. certain medications, changes in diet, or medical conditions may affect the amount of namenda xr in the body... and may increase side effects. the most common side effects... are headache, diarrhea and dizziness. wvo: all my life he's protected me. now i am giving back. ask their doctor about adding... once-daily namenda xr. you wouldn't do half of your daily routine. so why treat your mouth any differently. brushing alone does less than half the job leaving behind millions of germs. complete the job with listerine®. kill up to 99 percent of germs. and prevent plaque, early gum disease and bad breath. complete the job with listerine®. power to your mouth™. also try listerine® floss. its advanced technology removes more plaque. claritin-d presents two allergy sufferers.

8:21 am
while on xarelto®, watch for back pain or any nerve or muscle related signs or symptoms. do not take xarelto® if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. tell your doctor before all planned medical or dental procedures. before starting xarelto® tell your doctor about any conditions such as kidney, liver, or bleeding problems. xarelto® is proven to reduce the risk of dvt and pe, with no regular blood monitoring and no known dietary restrictions. treatment with xarelto® was the right move for me. ask your doctor about xarelto® today. tensions over racism at colleges goes beyond the university of oklahoma this morning. many colleges face disturbing conversations posted on an app called yik yak.

8:23 am
homophobic and tieantisim mettic. >> what's going to happen? >> they say they're zealously looking into it. at michigan state university the police got involved. you can vote down a post and if it get us enough down posts the post will be eliminated from the site but it's not proving particularly successsuccessful. >> if it's anonymous, how do they find out about it? >> they can't. >> you said something about violence. >> in that case law enforcement got involved. then the company will give it up but if it's rank gossip or
8:24 am
someone saying something offensive at a professor, they're not going to identify the user. a lot of parents of middle and high school students worry about bullies. anybody can post anonymous messages about your child. it's really devastating. what are they making sure the app doesn't happen with younger children? >> in high schools it's more problematic. they put up a geofence so you can't use it around high school campuses and the owner said, this wasn't intended for high school kids. it's intended for college students. high school students are not mature enough. but it seems like a bit of a dysfunction because college kids don't deal well with it either. >> how many times do they get negative votes where something guess eliminated. >> it hams sometimes. but it's spewing vitriols.

8:34 am
sexual assault. >> what's wrong with sex on the first date? >> i just think, charlie, i was raised at a time where you don't want to send a message of sex on the first date. i don't care how attracted i am. even if i want to. >> how many dates do you require? >> it's not a matter of the number of dates. but not two or three either. >> okay. >> it has to be the feeling. >> clearly charlie thinks sex on a first date is okay. >> wait, wait wait norah. if you have sex on the first date do you think less of a person who has sex with you on the first date? >> no. >> oh, god. i don't know. i still think men judge you. am i right? >> welcome to our program. >> hi. >> okay. this is exactly why we wanted to do this. men and women have different intentions and expectations when it comes to everything from
8:35 am
romance to -- >> maybe times have changed. i'm really serious about it. is it no longer taboo? is it no big deal? >> when we ask about the second or third date if you expect it and men and women said yes. there were a lot of simt laters here and that was one of them. >> let's talk about some of the misperceptions. 512% of the women and 31% of women send a naked selfie. you weren't surprised by that? >> i wasn't surprised by that because they're having long distance relation ships. see you later, check me out. 26% of men send a naked selfie to a crush, someone they're trying to woo. >> so if he sends a picture of himself, i'm sus posepposed to be impressed? >> i don't think it's doing what they think it's going to do. >> i don't think charlie has
8:36 am
sent me a selfie. >> or anything. >> you're much more progresive than i am. 53% of women and 59% of men believe if you go home on the first or second date you're going to have sex. the majority believe when you go home, you're going to have sex. >> men and women are on the same page. there isn't this lag where all the men would say yes and all the women would say no. there really is the fact that when it comes to sex on the first and second date there's a lot of agreement. >> why couldn't you say i want to come home and watch "house of cards" or i want to watch something. why would you assume -- i'm serious. i'm not trying to be cute. do you want to come over. why is there an assumption on his part? >> what's important is a sense of communication, making it clear. >> it would be fine to say i don't want to have sex. >> okay. >> the interesting thing to me, also about this do men and women differ in terms of how
8:37 am
they perceive whether men or women want sex more? the desire for sex, is it different between men and women? >> i don't know if we looked at that specifically but i think that -- i think the old stereotype of like he wants it more than her is kind of out the window, especially with a younger cosmo reader. they're powerful women. they know what they want. >> there are no apologies. >> and they're going ask the man out. >> when you ask a man or a woman who should make the first move they say it doesn't matter. >> that's the one i highlighted. 98% said they don't care. >> of men who suppress the preference, they're twice as likely to say they want the woman to make the first move. >> i like that because the days of a woman not being able to speak up and say they want it should be over. yeah, i like you, let's go. >> men like it. >> they do. i believe that too. this is the thing i thought
8:38 am
surprising in your survey. ma more than half the men believe that under the right circumstances most men are capable of rape. >> i'm shocked by that. almost equal percentages of men and women. read that and see that's how american men are thinking. it's really shocking. >> what does that say? >> from a woman's point of view it's kind of an ak phenomenalment there isn't this stereotype. because of the headlines we see, women understand a rapist could be a friend someone in your social circle n your date. >> you have to understand that no means no. >> i think men might be responding to what they readering in the news. over the past year we've seen too many men behaving very very badly and that might color it as well. >> did you find we're more alike than different on this topic? >> i think on this particular topic i think we can all agree what kops substitutes acts of sexual violence but when you ask
8:39 am
how serious it is, women are much higher. >> the aware inness is ness is more among women. >> it was interesting to read all the nice graphics and stuff. >> and that that the two of you teamed up nice. >> president obama will meet with some of the country's brightest young minds. 40 high school students vied for $150,000 top prize for their experiments and discoveries. wyatt andrews shows us how their contributions could be invaluable. >> ladies and gentlemen, i present to you -- >> reporter: with more than $1 million in cash awards on the line and with 40 finalists in formal ware awaiting the judge's decisions, it looked like a reality show in a final

8:41 am
vortex. 17-year-old krity lal create add kit that removes arsenic from water which kills 140 people every year. >> in terms of saving people's lives, i think it has huge implications and i'm really excited about that. >> reporter: the competition and all this pageantry issal of this annual science and talent search which for 17 years has been sponsored by the intel corps racing. intel's president rene james said she was amazed at this year's level of the future. >> what does it say about the future? >> it makes me hopeful. not just science projects but global issues but solving environmental and medical -- big world kinds of things. >> reporter: on any other day these students are teenagers, high school kids involved in sports teams concerts, and student government. but on this special night they
8:42 am
trade textbooks for tuxedos, experiments for evening gowns, and are recognized for their research and ideas. america's got talent, all right, in the pham of a generation that will reinvent everything. for "cbs this morning," wyatt andrews, washington. >> i think this is so great because it popularizes science and it's an incentive for these young kids to fall in love with science and research. >> absolutely. >> and they're so smart, charlie, at such a young age. eight's great to say. >> it's great the way intel is sponsoring this. >> and it's as pop lore and ak tracki
