we talked to our doctors about treatment with xarelto®. me, when i had a blood clot in my leg that could have traveled to my lungs. that's why i took xarelto®, too. xarelto® is proven to treat and help reduce the risk of dvt and pe blood clots. i took xarelto® for afib... an irregular heartbeat that can lead to a stroke from a blood clot. xarelto® is proven to reduce the risk of stroke in people with afib, not caused by a heart valve problem. hey, well i'm glad we got together. for people with afib currently well managed on warfarin there is limited information on how xarelto® and warfarin compare in reducing the risk of stroke. i tried warfarin before, but the blood testing routine and dietary restrictions had me off my game. tell me about it. let's see, golf clinic, or blood clinic? ooh, that's a tough one. not this time. not with xarelto®. anything else? i'll have another arnold palmer. ok. make mine a kevin nealon. really, brian? hey, safety first. like all blood thinners, don't stop taking xarelto® without talking to your doctor as this may increase your risk of a blood clot or stroke. while taking xarelto®
7:54 am
you may bruise more easily and it may take longer for bleeding to stop. xarelto® may increase your risk of bleeding if you take certain medicines. xarelto® can cause serious bleeding and in rare cases may be fatal. get help right away if you develop unexpected bleeding unusual bruising, or tingling. if you have had spinal anesthesia 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® has been prescribed more than 11 million times in the u.s. and that number's growing. like your guys' scores. with xarelto® there is no regular blood monitoring, and no known dietary restrictions. treatment with xarelto® was the right move for us. ask your doctor about xarelto®. you may be able to get up to 12 months at no cost.

8:01 am
12-night cruise is what some are calling a once-in-a-lifetime storm. >> the reason it's a game-changer is making genetic tests affordable and testable is a new. >> an attempt to hide his concern backfired. >> only 148 days? oh my gosh. what will we do between now and then and what will we do when it comes? >> "thursday night football" on cbs. ♪ this is how i do it ♪ >> he doesn't know how it was introduced to its facilities. but it's testing its testing, training and sanitizing -- >> it's my fault. i shouldn't have bought this listeria and chip. i'm charlie rose along with jeff glor and gayle king.

8:04 am
they would have 53% of all broadband internet. this would create one huge behemoth that has way too much power. we need more competition in this sector and not less. >> they say they need it so they can compete with people like apple and others like amazon who are streaming. >> well, if you're talking about getting your tv -- broadband internet is the way to get your tv. people who are cutting the cord to cable they're going to the internet. and this company would control 57% of all broadband internet in this country. what this would mean to consumers, is higher prices, less choice, and if it's even possible, worse service. >> senator, senator, comcast says it will improve the merger and broad band experience with the customers because it will have twice as much video on demand as it and faster internet
8:05 am
speeds. does that do anything to sway you? >> they say things and do other things all the time. and that's just the history of this this. one of the reasons they're being looked at is they haven't lived up to their last one, which was nbcuniversal. we need more competition if you want higher speeds. >> any conditions or concessions that would help change your mind? >> no. the fcc and department of justice don't have the capacity to enforce those conditions. that's been shown in the past. this is the deal -- this creates a giant company unprecedent in size size. intel communications is just going to be bad for minnesota consumers and consumers internationally. >> what are the charges that this merger goes through or
8:06 am
doesn't go through realistically? >> i'm not a prognosticator, but i think when it started and i was the only senator opposing this it was considered a fait accompli. i think now the odds are it will be rejected. snooki turn to one other quick thing? david letterman is retiring. you suggested he ought to run for the senate. does that mean you think we need more former comedians in the senate? >> yes. i think we need you know mr. colbert and i, mr. frank and i, mr. miller no mr. letterman, aye. >> you think we'd have a better country if we had more comedians in the senate. >> well you know sometimes student asks me how do you become a u.s. senator. say do comedy for about 35 years and run for the senate. it works every time. >> thank you. >> he had the last word on that. thanks a lot.

8:33 am
into law. we're starting to have a lot of success around the world and i'm confident we'll have success in new york. it's been quite a bit of struggle. >> you always seem to think big, brian? >> yes absolutely. >> when you heard change in cuba, you were thinking what? >> we're going. they said it would be a great for us to get 100 homes in cuba. i said what about a thousand. we have to make sure we have enough inventory. we were opened with open arms. they've been sharing their homes for a generation so we thought this would be a perfect platform. >> there's no restrictions on american companies doing restrictions in cuba. >> not restrictions for -- there were a lot of restrictions that were lifted to allow -- they have to go for one of 12 different travel purposes and you can declare the reason you're going but we worked with

according to plan. they say airbnb has trashed the place. what are you learning? >> we've had 2,500 people stay. not everyone is a positive. but every time there's a situation, we have a chance to improve. the whole sharing of economy basically works off a reputation system. 20 years ago you saw a person in the street and they were a stranger. you can read what the 50 people said. it's a really really powerful thing. >> if somebody's not supposed to be running a business. if they're not supposed to be resub letting it and they are on airbnb how do you stop that? >> we tell them to check with their landlords.

"60 minutes" first introduced us to kelsey bell
8:42 am
bellknapp. she said they raped her while she was drunk. they asked her if she shoutif she thought she gave the players consent. >> we're told that this particular part of that paragraph regarding the consent issue, the police chief told us it was the dagger in the case it was the aspect that killed it. looking back on it now, how do you feel about that? >> it pisss me off a little bit. >> in what way? >> the fact that i was persuaded almost. persuaded to say that. because i have no idea what they're thinking. i'm not a mind reader. all these questions were coming at me. describe the situation. i'm having to relive this again two days later. terrified, a nervous wreck,
8:43 am
trying to keep myself together not to cry, to be tough. >> his book including her story and trying to hold alleged attackers accountable. jon krakauer it's so good to see you again. >> thank you. >> why mazzulla? >> mazzulla represents the country. its rate is lower. it's a beautiful town. not some outlier. i was looking at many cities when i was writing this book and i happened to go to a sentencing hearing in missoula. that's the moment i thought, wow, i could write a book aushlgd this woman. miss missoula is a wonderful place. i'd love to lever there myself but it representatives a huge
8:44 am
problem nationwide. >> are these problems that were there and nobody was stepping forward and there were extenuate extenuating circumstances that were attached to them? >> that's right. there's no even deck imrape. it's always been there. women are starting to come forward and gain attention. the department of justice investigating missoula, the police department, the prosecutor's office and the university because of courageous reporting by a local missoula reporter in the local paper, glen florio in "the miss seoulian." >> where is miss sue la today? >> because of the doj investigation, their police department is really good. they i've marriaging them. it still uses privacy lawing. the prosecutor's office has a
8:45 am
problem. there was a prosecutor in charge of senseual assaults. he left before the doj came in. she successfully kept a quarterback out of jail got him acquitted. then she ran for county prosecutor. this is a woman who's shown a great reluctance to prosecute anything other than a slam dunk. she's now in charge of the whole prosecutor's office that and that was one of the more fascinating thing in the book. this problem is so much more common than we know and you talk about rape myth. put that out there. >> one in five will be raped, that's from the centers for disease control. some say it's less. it's hard to know. at least 80% go unreported but it's hugely widespread.
8:46 am
why are they reluctant? >> because of the way they are treated in criminal trials. >> they're all creep y dafrmg dangerous acquaintances. >> yeah. most think they're jumping out of bushes. she knew this person since kindergarten. if a woman's being raped she'll if she didn't, that proves she must have wanted it. that's devastating. the trauma changes the brain chemistry. there's good science. >> in one of the cases the woman after she was raped she drove the rapist home which police then used against her. >> that's right. the defense attorneys for the
8:47 am
quarterback used that against her but in fact the psychologist who was an expert says he's seen that a lot. >> the question is why do they do it? is it about power? control? or is it about sex? >> it's about all about sex. they mostly do it because it's so easy to do. in 90% of it the rapist gets way with it scot-free. no accountability, no jail time no charges. that's why they do it because it's so easy. and they -- what's interesting is a lot of these rapists subscribe to the same rape myth it's the rapist in the bush. they don't think of themselves as a rapist. i'm a nice guy. i can't be a rapist. >> i was drunk. >> yeah. what's scary is many of these rapists if they had convicted. if you saw them walking down the street that is correct i could be working in the next cubicle. >> what did you think about the rolling stone case and the duke
8:48 am
lacrosse case where in both cases it appeared not to be what it was. >> in both of those cases the victim lied. it was a tafrable thing and discouraging. >> how common is that? >> 2% and 10% of men charged with rape are famouslylsely accused. the rape victim is usually the one under suspicion. in most cases the victim is the one they believe. >> i'll bet they're not interested in seeing you in missoula. but you're going there. >> i'm going there. i feel like the people of missoula have question. >> i've seen jon answer these questions in forums and i think you will. the book is called" miss sue
