email@example.com ] good morning. it is friday, october 5, 2012. welcome to cbs "this morning." president obama sharpens his attack on mitt romney while the blame game over performance continues. >> the new jobs report is out this morning. what will that do the campaign? >> and bad news for drivers today. why gas prices are soaring to nearly $6 a gallon in some parts of the country. >> but we begin this morning wi today's "eye opener," your world in 90 seconds. >> now and then you'll say something that doesn't come out right. in this case i said something completely wrong. >> for the first time romney
backed away from his controversial remarks about the 47% of americans who don't pay federal income taxes. >> this whole campaign is about the 100%. >> you want to be president, you owe the american people the truth. >> the only thing that could have salvaged president obama's performance if the body of bin laden fell from the ceiling on to the stage. >> the latest fallout for seat scare for american. >> we had a very unique situation. it's completely random. >> in just hours the latest jobs report is coming out. >> 12.5 million unemployed. 8.1%. >> gas prices are going up across the country. but in california they are soaring to a panic level hovering near the $6 mark. >> i've never seen it so high. >> get a look at this, the first snow of the season making a mess across the upper midwest. >> we're excited.
>> a bus driver becomes a target of an angry fare jumper. >> 50 years ago james bond made his big screen debut. >> everybody gets a day off. >> all that -- >> going deep. how about that? >> did you really need to call barack obama the president of the united states lazy? >> yes. >> all that matters. designee hasn't done this poorly since he debated clint eastwood. >> their supporters will blame the president's poor performance to the moderator to -- >> on cbs "this morning." [ bleep ] [ applause ] [ bleep ] [ laughter ] welcome to cbs "this morning." i'm charlie rose in new york.
norah o'donnell is in washington. the presidential candidates are looking for momentum. president obama did something his critics did he did not do on wednesday he came out swinging. >> on thursday the president accused governor mitt romney of not being honest with the american people. nancy cordes is at the white house after covering the obama campaign. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. well this is the obama campaign's way of turning lemons into lemonade. out on the campaign trail in a new campaign trail they argued romney had a great performance but only because he was untethered from the truth. a different president obama emerged on thursday, more aggressive and combative and ready to respond to his republican opponent. >> governor romney may dance around his position, he may do a tap dance and a two step, but if you want to be president then you owe the american people the
truth. >> reporter: it was a new line of attack the president used all day before 30,000 supporters in wisconsin and earlier in denver, about mitt romney being less than truthful with the american people. >> the real mitt romney has been running around the country for the last year promising about a trillion dollars in tax cuts to favor the wealthy, but the fella on stage last night said he didn't know anything about that. >> reporter: the president was trying to land some of the punches he missed on the debate. on a day that was a tough one, the vice president didn't make things easier. >> rear going ask the weighty to pay more. >> reporter: campaigning in iowa biden said he and the president wants to raise taxes. >> you know the phrase they always use. obama and biden want to raise taxes by a trillion dollars. guess what? yes, we do and in one regard. we want to let that trillion dollar tax cut expire so the
middle class doesn't have to bear the burden of all that money going to the super wealthy. that's not a tax raise. that's called fairness come fro. >> mitt romney! >> reporter: mitt romney and paul ryan took turns attacking that message. >> president obama said the truth today they plan to raise taxes on the american people. that will kill jobs. we won't let that happen. we want to create jobs, not kill jobs in this country. >> reporter: last night romney did something he refused to do before. disavow the ntroversial comments denigrating 47% of americans who don't pay income taxes. >> in this case i said something that's completely wrong. and i absolute believe my life has shown that i care about 100%. and that's been demonstrated throughout mlife. >> reporter: in the past romney was only willing to say those comments were inelegant now he's
calling them flat wrong. it's a mea culpa on wednesday night but president obama never brought the comments up, to the surprise of both campaigns. >> on that note after the president's performance on wednesday, some democrats say his campaign needs a wake up call. bill plante is here with that part of the story. you've been talking to their sources. what are they saying? >> they are upset and outraged. they blame the president's team first of all for not preparing him to meet the challenge of an aggressive mitt romney. they say that nobody in the room challenged him, including the guy that he was debating with, john kerry because as they say he wants to be secretary of state. he's not going to get in the president's face. presidents are used to deference. they are not used to people challenging them like that. they i had the big prep was terrible but they fault the president himself for not understanding that romney was going to be more aggressive.
>> how could they underestimate that? >> this is about the president's, i'm told, real preference, to try to remain low key. and that's something that his advisers couldn't change. >> so what are they going to do now? we heard david axelrod say that they are going to change some things, even suggesting that mitt romney is a liar for what he said in the debate. how are they going change things in. >> they will ramp it up. they have to figure out a way as these people say for the president to bring it in the next debate without appearing unpresidential. but here's the thing. they are worried about next week's debate between ryan and biden. they are afraid the 54-year-old ryan is going make the 69-year-old biden look kind of out of touch. and they say if that happens we're in real trouble. >> bill plante, thank you very much. charlie? >> thank you, norah.
former vermont governor howard dean knows about debates. he ran for president in 2004 and later became chairman of the democratic party. governor, good morning. let's talk about what bill plante and norah o'donnell talked about. what happened and who do you think is responsible and what does the president have to do now? >> well, first of all i don't think big mistakes -- this is a lot of hand wringing. i thought the president did fine. mitt romney was very aggressive and they should have been prepared for that. he was aggressive before on one of the sunday talk shows and he has his mesge down well. the president preferred to remain presidential and de. i think mitt romney did some damage. he did well in the debate. but the truth is he's become, he has become totally untethered from everything he said before andith this final apology for the 47% remark it really does look like a guy who will say anything to get to be president of the united states. people look
presidential. i don't think president obama will call mitt romney a liar in the next debate. that's not presidential. i think he'll be much more aggressive. i don't think romney is a liar, he just manages to convince himself that any position is fine at the time. ted kennedy had it best. ted kennedy said i'm the pro choice candidate. my candidate is the multiple choice candidates. mitt romney says whatever he has to say and there's no core belief there. that's a problem for him in the general election because i think people are into that. they get that politicians say anything and obama doesn't do that. obama pretty much tells like it is. did he do a good job in the
debate? >> no. >> governor i want to ask you about vice president biden yesterday on the stump, some comments that people are calling a gaffe by biden where he said obama and biden want to raise taxes by a trillion dollars. guess what, yes we do. is that the right kind of message? >> wait a minute. excuse me but the rest of that you haven't in full context. yes we'll raise taxes on the wealthy. they have been saying that for a year. specifically he said we're not is going raise taxes on the middle class. that's what he said. this is not a gaffe. this is a media hand wringing. when i was campaigning lots of people accused me of gaffes all the time. a gaffe is what people say in washington when you tell the truth and they think you shouldn't have. yeah, the democrats are going raise taxes on wealthy people so we can help balance the budget. that's a pretty reasonable thing. >> governor dean, do you think this debate has consequences for
debater, he's well prepared, he's obviously smart, and he done seem to stand for anything because he says whatever he thinks he has to say. he's moved all the way back to the middle from his extreme position in the primary. i don't believe in any of them because this is a guy who will say whatever it takes to win the presidency. >> the labor department's september jobs report comes out this morning. it seems as a bellwether for the overall economy but an issue in the presidential race. rebecca jarvis has a preview. good morning. what are we expecting. >> more job creation but still higher unemployment. higher unemployment rate, we're expecting it to tick up to 8.2% and yet 115,000 jobs according to analysts were created in the month of september. that's better than last month. >> why aren't they being filled? >> this are not being filled and this is something that every ceo tells me, they are not being filled in part because of a huge skills gap in this country. there are 3.5 million job openings in this country right now. but the candidates who are applying for these jobs don't have the accreditation, skills,
experience to take on the jobs and in many cases these jobs are paying much higher than the average income in this country. >> what kind of numbers? what would it take to bring unemployment below 8%? >> you would have to see 3.5 million new jobs added in the workforce. you would have to see sustained growth in our jobs picture of 150,000 jobs a month just to meet population growth or 250,000 jobs a month to really get things moving. 5.5% is what we consider normal unemployment in this country. if we go at this pace it's still more than four years away. >> good to see you. >> norah? >> this morning health firm warn a rare and dangerous meningitis outbreak could get bigger. thousands of patients could be in danger from tainted steroid shots. it's unclear how many received injection for back pain. 35 people in six states have
contracted or the fungal meningitis. five of them have died. charlie. in libya thursday fbi agents and other investigators visited what's left of the american consulate in benghazi. their first visit came three weeks after the attack that killed ambassador chris stevens and three other americans. officials tells cbs news there were repeated requests for additional security before the attack. so what are we finding out about that security and are we getting the answers that we need? >> well, we're going to be learning more. but what we're learning now is that there were a drum beat of incidents, about 13 security threats either directly to the embassy, to the consulate, a handful of those but then incidents surrounding in the surrounding area against british, red cross and so on. this was building up. >> why didn't ambassador stevens go to benghazi and did they
appreciate the danger and did they, in fact, have enough security for him. >> okay. this is a fascinating question. this is where our story forks off in two different directions. i've been to embassies all over the world and i've seen how security works. when it comes to ambassador whether he makes a trip or makes that call, in the embassy the ambassador is king. that's his call. the things that go along with that, which is the security of the facility he's going to, the security provided to him on the road, a lot of those decisions are made in washington and as we get closer to next wednesday's congressional oversight hearing we'll learn some incredible things. we were talking to cheryl atkinson. they are working on two witnesses. one is eric nordstrom who is prepared to testify about these rising security threats and they did ask for more security in cables and memos from washington and the other was that they want to get is charlene lamb the
deply mattic security person, the person who approves or denies those requests and i think we're going to see a lot of news coming out of that. >> i think you're right we'll see some news coming out of that. what about the investigation in terms of who is behind these attacks? what have we learned? >> i think, you know, the fbi said yesterday they were able to collect some evidence, document the crime scene but it is still centering in on anshar al saria. once they figure out the who-dun-it part what do they do about it. there's not a criminal justice system in libya that can handle an arrest and trial and bring thome the united states that's frought with their own issues. they are in the decision-making process once we nail them down what do we do with them. >> why did they have a different story in the beginning than they have now about whether this was
pre-planned? >> that's the subject of much debate and consternation. i would put less focus on that because i have been on the other end of the information flow in crisis where you're getting the reports back from the field and, charlie, the first reports are never right. the first day, the second it takes time to get into focus and we're getting the same reports from journalist colleagues on the ground to a great degree. i think the real crux of this is going to be what was the deteriorating security situation, how much did washington know and what did they deliver in terms of protection. it sound more like they were taking it away than providing extra. >> it could be a rough day for travellers on american airlines again for the second day in a row american is cancelling dozens of flights to repair those seats that could pull out of the floor. american pulled 48 of its 757s out of service to make the repairs. in the past weeks, seats on three american flights have come loose. the airline now says a combination of wear, poor design
and spilled soda they say is to blame. >> american tourist opened fire this morning at a resort hotel in israel. one person was shot dead before police killed the gunman. the resort in eilat was packed with people. the gunman stole a gun from a security guard and shot a hotel chef after an argument. the suspect worked at the hotel until a few days ago. he was involved in a work study program. it is time to show you some of this morning's headlines. a "los angeles times" says convicted killer described as charles manson's right-hand man has been approved for parole. bruce davis was not there when the hanson family was murdered and sharon tate died but convicted of killing two men at the ranch where manson and his followers lived. governor jerry brown will decide if davis will be released. >> "the washington post" reports on new secret service policies. excessive drinking has been prohibited so has sharing work
related information on social media. five months ago more than a dozen secret service employees were accused of drunken partying. >> "usa today" says 10% of all workers work from home. census figures show an extra 4.2 million workers telecommuting at least one day a week. people who work only at home earn more than people who work outside the home. >> the "wall street journal" has a halloween horror story. starbucks stores have been running out of the pumpkin sauce for their popular pumpkin spies latte. customers get upset when their store runs out. starbucks blames the shortages on infrequent deliveries at some locations. a lot of pain in the world. it may be the beginning of fall but it looks like winter in the northern plains. parts of north dakota could get up to ten inches of snow from a storm that started on thursday. the wet heavy snow made travel
feathers are flying after mitt romney says he'll cut a public television icon out of the federal budget. >> thank goodness somebody is finally getting tough on big bird. >> one mention of big bird at the debate led to hundreds of thousands of tweets. this morning we'll look at the controversy. >> california drivers can't believe this. gas prices going up 8 cents in one day and 18 cents in the past week. we'll show you why gas supplies are so low across the country and how long higher prices could last. on cbs "this morning". >> this portion of cbs "this morning" sponsored by this portion of cbs "this morning"

mitt romney, wow, powerful. not afraid of anything. he said he'll get rid of big bird. later. then he mentioned donald trump. donald trump who endorses mitt romney. interesting. one, comical tv character with synthetic yellow hair. then you have big bird. >> good morning. welcome back to cbs "this morning" everybody. i'm norah o'donnell in washington and charlie is there in new york. good morning, charlie. >> good morning, norah. many california drivers are running on empty this morning and the problem could be spreading to other states. gas prices have jumped all week, the fastest rise in many years and some gas stations don't have
any fuel to sell at all. bill whittaker reports low supplies are leading to high frustration. >> reporter: for many californians driving is as natural as breathing and gas lynn is the motorist's life blood. that's why seeing something like this is more than frustrating, it's almost unbelievable. >> i came to get gas and it's not here. >> reporter: some of the state's gas stations have been forced to close their pumps and the ones that are open are charging prices that can only be described one way, an arm and a leg. that's why at discount gs line out lets like costcos motorists lining up to fill their tankses. analysts say it's a harp decline in supply. low gasoline vince pushed the average price for a gallon of regular up 18 cents this week alone to $4.32. that includes the biggest one day hike in state history, 8 cents a gallon. >> we have never seen a spike like this. this is brand new territory.
>> we just don't know how quickly they can get these supplies back online that we need. >> reporter: so what's fueling the shortage? analysts point to disruptions in nearby refineries. recent fires and power failures in california plants and a shut down was enough to reduce the flow of gasoline causing the law of supply and demand to go into over drive. signs like this are creating sticker shock all over california while $5 gas isn't the norm yet, analysts warn the average price for regular soon could surpass the year's high, topping $4.37 a gallon. analysts say the uptick is troublesome but temporary. california's drivers will have reason to give thanks for lower prices by thanksgiving. for cbs "this morning," bill whittaker in los angeles. >> gas prices have been rising in other states because of shortage of fuel. gas prices in texas fell by 4
cents a gallon last week. there was a clear winner in wednesday's presidential debate at least when it comes to getting our attention. mitt romney used public tv's big bird to make a point about spending and as jeff glor reports that's triggered an avalanche of criticism. >> reporter: it was not the first time pbs has been a targeted. it was maybe the most prominent platform. >> i'm is going to stop the subsidy to pbs. i like pbs. i love big bird. i like you too. but i'm not going to keep on spending money on things to borrow money from china to pay for. >> reporter: seconds after governor romney uttered those world twitter nearly tumbled over. at one point 17,000 big bird tweets per minute. "the social network" said it was the most tweeted about political event in u.s. history. ari fleischer, big bird needs to ask dora the explorer how she manages to live without taxpayer
money. try it big bird. joan rivers, attention pbs, if mitt romney fires big bird i'm ready to fill in. i got the perfect outfit. president obama did not pounce directly during the debates but he did thursday on the trail. >> when he was asked what he would actually do to cut the deficit and reduce spending, he said he would eliminate funding for public television. thank goodness somebody is finally getting tough on big bird. it's about time. we didn't know that big bird was driving the federal deficit. >> reporter: last night the late night shows had fun with it too. [ bleep ] >> fire big bird. >> reporter: for years conservatives have accused pbs of having a liberal bias arguing its federal funds aren't justified. the ceo had this response. >> we are clearly as a country facing such significant
challenges, but to talk about pbs as a solution to our budget issues, to me, is unbelievable. >> reporter: the official "sesame street" twitter feed speaking as big bird was more coy saying my bedtime usually 7:45 but i was really tired yesterday and fell asleep at 7:00. did i miss anything last night? he did. as we still see online this morning, dozens of photos showing just how divisive a docile children's character can be. for cbs "this morning" i'm jeff glor in new york. >> so, charlie, i think there's a legitimate argument about whether the federal government should be funding pbs but in terms of the effect it would have on the deficit, it's sort of silly. here's the math. this is how much the corp ration for public broadcasting is part of our budget. two third of our budget is entitlement. the debate should be how do we
pare back entitlement spending or cut larger government spending in terms of adding to the deficit. that's just my point this morning. >> well as you know i have a program on pbs but we don't get any money from pbs to create that programming, it comes from underwriters and foundations. it's one square mile with a lot of money. this morning we'll visit monaco the play ground of the rich, sun, and no income tax. you're watching cbs "this morning".

billionaire head of state prince albert ii said his government made some changes as a result. >> what have you been doing to make monaco's financial system more transparent. >> we've been able to accommodate every inquiry and every issue that was brought to the forefront. now, we are, for a certain number of years, we're completely compliant with every international standard. so i think it's very unfair to say that monaco is not compliant. we've been compliant for several years now. >> but others countered that monaco's compliance is little more than window dressing. and the very wealthy will continue to flock common. >> if i was running a tax haven country, then i would choose to do would be to resist the call

♪ it is 8:00. welcome to cbs "this morning." the presidential candidates go back to the campaign trail as mitt romney gains momentum and democrats lean on president obama to do better. it's golden anniversary for the very first beatles record but first here's a look at what's happening in the world and what we've been covering on cbs "this morning". >> governor romney may dance around his position but if you want to be president then you owe the american people the truth. >> president obama did something his critics said he did not do on wednesday, he came out swinging. >> some democrats say his campaign needs a wake up call. >> would i have liked him to be
more aggressive? yes. did i think the team didn't prepare him, i think they didn't prepare him. >> in libya on thursday fib agents and other investigators visited what's left of the american consulate in benghazi. what we're learning is there were a drum beat of incidents b-13 security threats. this was building up. >> for the second day in a row american is cancelling dozens of flights to repair those seats that could pull out of the floor. >> many california drivers are running on empty this morning and the problem could be spreading to other states. >> came to get gas and it's not here. >> talk about pbs as a solution to our budget problems is unbelievable. >> in monaco you can live tax-free and everybody else is out of work. >> two more debates left. we know what we're dealing with. >> bob and weave. >> i'll say a bunch of stuff and then you'll just go -- o'reilly
angry. [ laughter ] >> i'm charlie rose with gayle king, norah o'donnell is in washington. this morning mitt romney is looking to build on the momentum he gained from the first presidential debate. president obama is regrouping after hearing a lot of criticism from fellow democrats, the party's 2000 nominee al gore is suggests the president should have come to denver sooner. >> i'm going to say something controversial here. obama arrived in denver at 2:00 p.m. today. just a few hours before the debate started. romney did his debate prep in denver. when you go to 5,000 feet and you only have a few hours to adjust, i don't know, maybe -- >> both candidates are visiting key battleground states today starting with virginia. nancy cordes is at the white
house. good morning. >> reporter: good morning to you, charlie. >> what is the president's team, what reasons are they giving for his performance? >> reporter: well, there's the charitable view and there's the not so charitable view. the charitable view from inside the campaign is this was a strategy that kind of went yoaw. it was for the president to stay above the fray, remain presidential and not mix it up with momry. romney came into the room loaded for bear. it made the president look weak and bored by comparison. not so charitable view is the president just didn't bring his a-game that night. that he was well prepared, that he's much more forceful in his arguments out on the campaign trail, but just didn't bring it into the debate. >> so, nancy, what's the strategy now? >> well, the strategy, gayle, is for the campaign and for the president himself to make the
best of a bad situation and go out there on trail and fwu that the reason that governor romney had such a great night on wednesday night was because he wasn't bound by the truth, that he was being misleading about his tax plan and about his medicare plan. it's not the argument you want to be taking out on the road after the first debate but it's the best they've got right now and of course i think you're going see a little bit of retooling of the debate strategy for the next debate which is just 11 days away. >> hat about that next debate, nancy between vice president joe biden and paul ryan. is the campaign concerned at all about that debate? >> reporter: i think they are a little concerned, norah, because they know that paul ryan is an aggressive debater. however, biden has been on the debate stage before. the problem with biden, as you know, he has a tendency to go off message from time to time so that's something they are a little bit worried about, especially because they can't
afford another bad night. >> nancy, i'm struck by your comment that they say he didn't bring his a-game. any explanation why the president would have the first debate and not bring his a-game? >> reporter: this is something, gayle that afflicts a lot of sitting presidents. they have bad first debates. you saw this with george w. bush. george h.w. bush. for some reason presidents who live in this kind of cloistered environment where they are not challenged on a day-to-day basis, they get into debate prep, they get into that one on one situation with another candidate and just don't feel challenged. it takes that one debate to shake things up and get them back on track. >> american airlines has a my explanation for seats that fell apart in mid-flight. american is fixing seats on 48 of its 757 jets. dozens of flights are cancelled today. 50 flights were cancelled yesterday. seats have come loose on three american flights since last

[ laughter ] >> "usa today" says cooper invited jones on his talk show, instead she tweeted he used me talking about him coming out as a ratings ploy. how about that, gayle? >> i'm thinking, norah and charlie they are not going to lunch any time soon. >> no lunch. but we love anderson. >> yes we do. star is okay too. a battle at "american idol" is getting louder. judges are feuding after arguing during a taping this week.

program in primetime. "48 hours" correspondent erin moriarty is with us this morning. >> this case troubles me. two women, best friends went on trial in lake charles, louisiana accused of killing of one of the women's husbands. the key witness against them something like this. a cell phone each used the day the victim disappeared. police around the country say cell phone data is becoming digital dna in our hi-tech world. you won't find two women closer friends than robyn davis and salzman. >> it's the kind of friend all people should have. it's one person you can call no matter what and they are there regardless. most people don't have that. >> their friendship is more important than of these days since they were charged with cold-blooded murder together. >> i have no idea i was under suspicion for murder.
>> i couldn't believe it. i couldn't believe it. i still can't believe it. >> robin's husband brian was found shot four times. >> we get on the scene and there's a car jacked up, a body 20 feet or so from the body, appears to have gunshot wounds to the body. >> at first police thought it was a robbery gone bad. but then they started looking at a lot of strange clues. brian's pants were undone, his shoes were off and he had been having an affair. >> it was becoming very clear to us that maybe this wasn't what appeared to be at first. >> when did this case become known to all of you >> we called it the thelma and louise case, obviously because of the movie. >> the movie is a tale of two women friends -- >> we take care of this gun. >> and a murder. [ gun shots ] >> but this drama was real. >> did you think you were a suspect from the very beginning?
>> yes, do i. in retrospect. i don't know why. >> police say it was because of something that placed them near the crime scene. their cell phone records. >> the phone records are certainly a smoking gun. there's no question about that. that we felt like that was our best piece of evidence. >> but would it be enough to convince a jury? >> none of the jurors have education in cell phone how it works so that was kind of hard for us to make a decision. >> you are best friends. >> absolutely. >> would you if she asked you to kill somebody, would you do that? >> oh, my god, no. no. not for her. not for jesus christ himself. no. no. i don't have that in me. >> that's why this case is a little troubling. you might see a wife accused of killing her husband but a best friend, going to prison for life to help someone hill her husband. that's troubling for me. >> no thanks oil pass on that.
going jail for killing somebody, nope. how important was the cell phone evidence? >> in this case it was critical and it's becoming more and more critical in these cases. often prosecutors are now able to bring cases they weren't able to bring in the past simply because they have this technology. the whole idea is every time you make a call or get a call, it's supposed to ping off the nearest cell tower. that's recorded and police can get those records. but sometimes it pings off a different tower. tower closest to you is overloaded. that could be misleading down the line. >> the laws in louisiana, are they different? >> they are. it really had an effect in this case. you only need ten jurors to convict not 12 for murder. and so that can make a real difference and did make a difference in this case. >> they look like regular girls too. i'm struck by that. they look like women we all knew. >> talked to them beforehand, before the trial, there were no
limits to questions. they seemed to be without gile. they talked to police beforehand without lawyers all those things -- police said to me that's because they are arrogant and self-confident. that's troubling. that's why this case is troubling. >> all right. we can see you tomorrow night erin on "48 hours." called "friends for life." tomorrow night 10:00, 9:00 central. >> is swedish pop duo just finished a worldwide tour for their new album. why it's a miracle they are back on stage when cbs "this morning" continues. >> this portion of cbs "this morning" sponsored by this portion of cbs "this morning" sponsored by hershey's. what makes a hershey's bar pure. pure delicious hershey's chocolate. olate and add bubbles, it deliciously melts the moment you take a bite. hershey's air delight. it just might make you melt.

know about paid shopping. people hear this and say sign me up. first you need to -- where do you go? >> there's a number of websites that are doing this. some of the big ones, the sites that have come to be known as the places where shoppers can go and get paid. but i want to make it clear. you don't have to shop, your don't have to buy anything in order to make money on these sites. >> just need to show up? >> you show up, create an account for yourself. that's a big part of this. they want your information and want to you share these sites with other people. with baso, for example it works like this. you go to the website, register for an account, you find something on that site that you like. you push that item out through your twitter feed, through your facebook, google plus, pinterest. you show people. once they start clicking on it you get paid.
with another one you take a picture, register, show the picture to anyone who wants to see it in your social network and put the lings to the different items you're wearing. i'm wearing an ann taylor top today. but i'm not promoting ann taylor but using my outfit as an example. if i put a link to this top on the website and somebody decided they wanted to buy it all of a sudden i would get paid. >> this is what i wonder. how do you know people like it or just saying so they can get some money. >> this is the thing. you don't really have to say you like anything. you actually don't have to put any commentary along with what you're putting out there on the internet in order to get paid. this is really about driving traffic. that's what these websites want and driving sales. in the case of beso you'll get paid for a click. it doesn't have to amount to a picture. you get paid between five and 20% on average --
>> how much money? >> of the purchase price. it could be significant but not everybody will pay you 20% and fancy.com it's 2% of the purchase price if somebody buys what you put out there. >> it varies. then you have to be aware of fine print. isn't that the case? >> always the case that you have to be aware of this. there's no such thing as a free lunch. we should know that by now. with these sites what you have to keep in mind is you're putting your personal information out there, and you're also sharing things with your friends and family through your social network. so opportunity upfront with them. you don't have to be. there's nothing holding you necessarily accountable for being upfront with them but you should, in my opinion, tell people if you're going to put up something on the site, on your website, your facebook page, you should tell people, if you click on this or buy it i'm getting paid. >> that makes a difference. the federal trade commission do they have guidelines or concerns about how this works? >> they are concerned about this.
they want to know that people are aware of this. and right now it does. the onus does fall on the user you or me. the onus falls on us to tell people i'm getting paid for this. the federal trade commission is looking into this and it's something that they are going, to i think, especially as it gets bigger will pursue more heavily because they want to make sure that there's truth in advertising and with the internet there's so much advertising it's hard to make sure it's all honest. >> rebecca jarvis, thanks. wearing ann taylor. thank you. >> bobbi brown started her makeup business with $5,000 and seven years later she sold it for about $75 million with an m. bobbi brown talks about beauty. beauty, power and the meaning of success coming up next on cbs "this morning".
