7:15 am
in essence is this fair game but to disclose about an ally? >> absolutely fair game. i think the big boys and girls of the intelligence world understand they are being listened to. i think one of the challenges of what the administration has done in disarm on collecting on certain allies and not others and puts the white house in a uncomfortable position not to collect on angela merkel but collecting on allies like netanyahu. police in turkey this morning may have foiled suicide attacks planned for new year's eve. officers raided a house in an ankara. the suicide attackers were reportedly going to blow themselves up in the capital city. police believe the suspects were working with isis. less than 24 hours more than a million people will pour into mid-town manhattan for the

7:32 am
between two runways and nobody hurt but it could have been disastrous if a plane was parked there. the fourth time that mistake has been made at the airport.

7:34 am
couch's arrest reveals that he had dyed his blond hair black. in a statement on tuesday, couch's attorney said we have not had the opportunity to speak with our client. couch disappeared earlier this month, shortly after this video was posted to twitter. it appears to show him at a party with drinking, possibly violating his ten-year probation. in 2013 when couch was 16, he killed four people and paralyzed another in a drunk driving crash. during the trial, his defense argued that he suffered from affluenza, a controversial condition of his privileged wealthy upbringing that failed to teach him responsibility. todd clement is an important families. >> no question that ethan couch was raised in a way where he was taught to avoid responsibility, that he was taught the rules don't apply to him and his family. i think now we seeing they do

be placed in a juvenile detention facility until he turns 19 in april. in january, there is a hearing set to move his case over into adult court. as for tonya couch, she faces a third-degree felony charge for helping him escape and that carries a sentence up to ten years in prison. let's bring in cbs news legal analyst rikki klieman. let's talk about the notion of the adult system and whether he is going to be moved. first of all, do you think he is going to be moved to the adult system and what happens if he is? >> well, first of all, everyone seems to think that because this is a, quote/unquote, bad boy, that he is going to be brought back to this country having fled to mexico and the book is going to be thrown at him and he is going into prison for a long time. the answer to that is wrong. and we have to go back, jeff, before i get to adult status. as a juvenile, the purpose of the system is to protect the child. it isn't to rehabilitate the child. the adult system is to punish.
7:36 am
he is going to be brought back. he can only face 120 days in jail. that's it. then the government wants to transfer him to be an adult, because that is going to adult status. why? not because they can get him any more prison time, but they can, they believe, get him ten years probation or the reminder of what is left which is eight years and put him on probation to 2024. so if he then breaks the law or he then violates his probation, then he is going in. government is saying four deaths? we are going to look consecutive and look for 40 years if he does another bad thing. >> yet, the morm ther faces a third-degree felony charge. >> the mother may do more time than the son. the mother is facing third-degree felony charge two to ten years because she hindered the government from
7:37 am
off to mexico. you have to remember consistency here, margaret and jeff. what happened originally was they argued through the defense that this was the parent's fault, this permissive household and world of affluenza and why the parent should be responsible. i'll say an end of the year observation that i think we ought to look at. this is a story of a rich white boy who got a break, is too kind of a word, when he, by virtue of, quote/unquote, affluenza got probation. if he were a young man of color, you would not see that happen. that's why people get upset with the system. >> rikki klieman, thank you. political tall tales reached new heights this year. ahead a look at some of the xajs exaggerations on the campaign trail. if you're heading out to work, set your dvr so you can watch

8:28 am
falls through, that is when you're in trouble from a company's perspective. >> the people are looking for truth in advertising but you're saying like any other business? >> it's business and companies are driven by profit margins and shareholder value. it's in conflict to what goes to making this stuff. >> why would somebody be willing to spend 9 dollars a bar? >> they think it's better. clearly, because it's made a different way. if you really want to spend $9 it depends on your taste. if it tastes better to you, then you should buy $9th. . today you have all of the tools necessary to figure out what is really in it. it's really up to the consumer. you shouldn't be believing advertising to begin with. do your homework. go to website and clearly they can lie but nine times out of ten these things are going to
8:29 am
>> you still have to do research when people say organic is it usda or nongmo? so many labels. >> that video is great. when you about what is going on here you take it back to the natural craze. we saw that the last couple of years. natural was on every product and government agencies had to get involved. right now, the fda still doesn't have an official meaning on the word natural so companies can slap it on. it's sort of a loose definition they have, no artificial or synthetics substances. but they actually are opening up for review and they are asking the public to comment so maybe they will come out with something stronger that companies can abide by. i think 40 billion dollar food business that uses the word natural and a huge business. it doesn't mean it can be interpreted by different companies in a different way. very few people out there checking up on this, right? there is not a whole task force looking at advertising every day. >> it's not just the word. it's the colors and the labeling the way they do it put trees and
8:30 am
it looks green and you just automatically think it's better, right? >> people just want to buy in. we always have bought into imagery and advertising is always going to be around and they get clever at it. today it's artisanal. >> mcdonald's has an artisinal chicken sandwich. >> i think people think it means -- >> right, handmade but lots of wiggle room because nobody has defined it at least from the fda's perspective. companies have a lot of wiggle room. if you want to spend the extra buck then you need to do your homework and sometimes it's not very clear so you have to wait for somebody to do a big expo say on a company. seeing this in suburban category. lots of companies are removing the word natural from their products because there was a rash of consumer lawsuits against them. so it will take time and, guess what. two weeks from now a new word we

8:37 am
the set and somebody says this. i'm like, whoa. you realize it is one of those films. maybe you should see a doctor. >> reporter: what is the most thrilling part of acting in film for you? >> if you come on set and you feel like you believe in this film and it's something that you care about, everyone does their best and that kind of team work is something that i love that creation that you do with all of the people. >> reporter: as much as you aspire to with every film, you just can't guarantee it? >> no. that is why it's also so special when you feel it because i think you long for that feeling. >> reporter: including the bourne sequel, she will star in another four films set for release in 2016 which is why a cover story in the january issue of "vogue" calls it "the year of alicia vik anner." >> she was great.
