tv   Charlie Rose  Bloomberg  May 8, 2015 10:00pm-11:01pm EDT

10:00 pm
>> from our studios in new york city, this is "charlie rose." charlie: welcome to the program. we begin this evening with with deflategate and the legacy of tom brady. joining me is peter king of "sports illustrated." peter: what i am uneasy about is some day when tom brady dies his obituary in "the new york times," if the nfl comes down hard on him in this case, the second paragraph is going to be about how the nfl slammed him for cheating in 2015. and when i read the 139 pages of the report and 104 pages of the
10:01 pm
appendix, i am not positive. i cannot sit here and swear at all that tom brady was involved and was the mastermind or ordered code red. there is a lot there. a lot of evidence, some really makes me uneasy. charlie: we continue with david mccullough, the writer and narrative historian and his latest book is called "the wright brothers." david: we need lessons in appreciation. so many times we hear about these people in school and history courses for about 10 minutes and move on. the wright brothers were clever mechanics, bicycle mechanics and they invented the airplane. that's hardly a fraction of the story. they had tremendous interest in art and architecture and
10:02 pm
photography. they were fully alive intellectually and mentally. they also had this driving sense of purpose that i feel is essential to high achievement. charlie: the nfl released its long-awaited report on deflategate. the conclusion? new england patriots were using illegally, underinflated balls in a conference championship and quarterback tom brady probably knew of the plan. joining me is peter king of "sports illustrated." he is the one person i want to talk to about that. nobody knows more about football and no one has reported so well for so long. tell me what you make of the report. peter: charlie, i think in the last four or five major discipline cases involving the
10:03 pm
nfl with playing rules involved. you know the new orleans saints and the bounty thing. the atlanta falcons and making artificial crowd noise in their stadium. the nfl had a smoking gun in every one of those. here, not only does the nfl not have a smoking gun, it has a large amount of circumstantial evidence. it does not have the smoking gun and it involves one of the greatest players of all time. charlie, what i am uneasy about with this report is someday when tom brady dies, his obituary in "the new york times," if the nfl comes down hard on him in this case, the second paragraph is going to be about how the nfl slammed him for cheating in 2015. and when i read the 139 pages of the report and 104 pages of the appendix, i am not positive. i cannot sit here and swear at
10:04 pm
all that tom brady was involved and was the mastermind or ordered code red. i just -- it's -- there's a lot at there. there is a lot of evidence, some really makes me uneasy. charlie: let's start way back when. how did this case begin? peter: the week before the afc championship game, the general manager of the indianapolis colts sent an e-mail to the nfl saying it is well known around the league that the patriots are suspected to use underinflated footballs because their quarterback, tom brady, likes a little bit softer, more pliable football, especially in inclement weather. before the game, the officiating supervisor from the nfl basically warned the officials on the scene in new england. you know, be on the lookout for
10:05 pm
these, you know underinflated footballs and if need be, we will check them if we suspect some of the footballs are underinflated. charlie, there was about an 8-10 minute period, you cannot tell from reading the report where after the footballs were okayed for use on the field during the game, the fellow who runs the officials' locker room took the footballs in violation of what he is supposed to do. the footballs are supposed to be with the referee the entire time but he took them. video surveillance shows him going into a men's room near the field and staying in there for 100 seconds. it is theoretically possible he was either using the men's room or sticking a needle in 13 footballs. charlie: what did he say? peter: he denied sticking the needle in the footballs and is caught in a couple of lies in 4
10:06 pm
different interviews. one lie was i never went in there and the other is i used the urinal and there no urinal only a toilet. i am not sure how much you can trust that guy. charlie: and then there are e-mails between them. let me go back. after that, what happened to produce this report? peter: what happened, late in the first half, the colts intercepted a football and they took the football on the sideline and an equipment guy thought it felt slightly underinflated. they informed the nfl and went into the locker room and officials' locker room at halftime and they measured all footballs including four footballs the indianapolis colts were using. they did not have time to do all their footballs and discovered most of the patriots' footballs were underinflated and launched the investigation.
10:07 pm
charlie: that is evidence, isn't it? peter: it is evidence. i will say this. one of the gauges that measured the air in the colts' footballs one of the 2 gauges found three of four footballs were also underinflated. so, that is one of the slight problems, even though the patriots' footballs were clearly underinflated more than the colts' footballs, the colts' footballs were underinflated. that is not definitive proof. charlie: the nfl and roger goodell appoint ted wells, a well-known trial lawyer, highly regarded, highly respected to do an investigation in the same way they had muller do an investigation. peter: the way that ted wells did with the bullying situation with miami dolphins with incognito and jonathan martin. charlie: here you are, the guy robert mueller had done the other investigation and you have this guy ted wells, respected lawyer do the investigation and it takes a while to do.
10:08 pm
why did it take so long? peter: that is a good question. it is a difficult topic and they got the runaround from some people. it took a while to get tom brady to talk. charlie: he never released -- peter: he did not release his cell phone records. the two people who work for the patriots, who are in charge of footballs, they both released their cell phones. the nfl found incriminating records both in terms of calls tom brady after not speaking to john, who basically was the guy, the honcho of the footballs. after not speaking to him for six months, spoke to him six times in three days after it was announced there was an investigation. a total of 55 minutes, six times. not all that lengthy. but it is curious.
10:09 pm
there are 5 or 56 of those points taken altogether makes brady looked like he has a lot to hide or was hiding a lot. there are other things i am uneasy about. one is they talk about how tom brady basically was signing a lot of stuff for these guys. signing jerseys and helmets and autographs. as a little payola. it was implied it was payola. tom brady is one of those guys you can go into their patriots offices and see a lot of stuff that brady is going to sign. if somebody wanted something signed for charity, tom brady would do it. i am not saying he did not do the quid pro quo. there is no proof.
10:10 pm
charlie: i was at the fight. he was in the front row and i was in the second. we walked out together, right in front of me and said to someone later how gracious he was in everybody wanted to take a picture with him. rather remarkable. peter: charlie, i have an interesting relationship with him. five days after the super bowl this year, i said i want to write a column about your last 2 drives. it will probably be your greatest quarter. the number one defense and you drive the length of the field twice with the super bowl on the line having lost 2 super bowls. here you are, you have to make these 2 drives and you have to score touchdowns. we were on the phone for probably 75 minutes, five days after the game. i am the one who got off the
10:11 pm
phone, not him. i have always found him to the accommodating. charlie: it sounds like you want to get him a pass. you think it is circumstantial evidence. he has a great legacy. he is a great quarterback. he is the biggest star in the nfl. you are saying it is not sufficient evidence to hammer him. peter: i think there's a lot a circumstantial evidence and what the nfl will say is a preponderance of evidence that i understand. i think tom brady has questions to answer. charlie: you have any idea how the patriots or tom will respond? peter: bob kraft, the owner of the patriots, is -- vascillates between defiance and despond. defiant that he has been told by bill belichick and tom brady absolutely unequivocally we had no idea what was going on and we
10:12 pm
did not do this. brady has basically said nothing had happened. i did not do this. bob kraft, that is not his bailiwick. i would never say name for -- i would never say never but that is not his bailiwick. kraft, everything he is done with this franchise has been about trying to do something to keep the team in new england first of all. and secondly to give the people of new england team they could be proud of. that is why it hurts them. charlie: have you talked to him? peter: i have had a conversation with him but nothing on the record or nothing reportable. i am hoping in the coming days to speak to him. charlie: is there any idea of what brady is going to do? is he going to have a press
10:13 pm
conference or a conversation? peter: i do not know what he is going to do. it is incumbent on him to do something. charlie: does he have to do something? peter: he does. america is looking at him that tommy perfect is not perfect. charlie: did he know and secondly, how is he handling the questions about it after the fact? peter: it was very curious, he did one press conference where he talked about this at length. peter alexander, a correspondent of nbc news, when he talked about this, the only time he talked about it at length. peter alexander said "tom, america wants to know, are you a cheater?" brady looked at him and i am paraphrasing, i do not think so. he went on to talk about how he
10:14 pm
believes in fair play. i thought it was a curious answer. if i were him, i would come out say you are darn right i am not a cheater. charlie: i saw one of the guys who was going to do the super bowl, the callers watch an interview and said it bothers me. that interview bothered me. he said it was not forthcoming. if i was under the same circumstances, i would be out there screaming on the top of the building i knew nothing about this. peter: i totally agree with you. that is the way i would do it, too. i would say i am outraged my character is called into question and i did not do any thing. i will say this about brady. in my conversations with him over the years, there's only one time where he really flared.
10:15 pm
one time i really saw anger. everything else, it doesn't matter what the topic is. he is almost always measured. almost always. i do not know why that is. i take it, there is tom brady. charlie: here's what the report said -- let's assume the latter part of that. based on what you know, is it unlikely somebody would do that without tom's approval or knowledge? peter: absolutely. i would agree. you had troy aikman come out and say --
10:16 pm
a quarterback he said there's absolutely no way tom did not know that. a quarterback is totally involved in the preparation of the footballs. you have that other quarterbacks and players say they simply do not believe tom brady did not know. charlie: you do not know. you are saying -- peter: you know what i am uneasy about? what you are going to do is brand this guy something not only for the rest of his career but for the rest of his life. i am uncomfortable with all of the wording, "more probable than not," is about as definitive as ted wells gets, more probable than not. do i want to -- you know put this mantle on tom brady's legacy shoulders for the rest of his life based on "more probable than not?"
10:17 pm
charlie: how do we settle this? if they operate on the wells report, doesn't the nfl have to do something? peter: i think they do. charlie: the guy they hired said "more probable than not." peter: this is in essence a civil trial. o.j. simpson does not get found guilty in the criminal trial, he gets found guilty in a civil trial. he has to pay jillions of dollars to the goldman family. this reminds me of this. maybe in a court of law, tom brady would walk. in a civil trial which is what the nfl has put him under in essence, the nfl only have to have what it feels is a preponderance of evidence.
10:18 pm
if they believe there is a preponderance of evidence, i think they will come down hard. charlie: here's what i hear you saying. he has so much to lose, tom does, that if they are wrong, it is a terrible, terrible lifelong injustice to him. that is a risk they have to really think about. peter: that is a risk they have to weigh in. if i were roger goodell troy and the office, i would really push right now to be spending two or three hours with tom brady because i would want him to look at me in the face and hear from him about this. i am not so unsure it will not happen. but before i did that to a cornerstone of the game and i said you are suspended, you are something, i would want to have him look me in the eye and tell me what he feels is justice and
10:19 pm
what he feels is correct. charlie: suppose at some point he does that and let's assume that whatever reason there is conclusion it was done and tom knew. what is the appropriate punishment? peter: if there was more evidence then i have seen he did do it and i could believe conclusively that he did it, i would say he should definitely be suspended for some length of time whatever this. -- whatever it is. and even though and it would put the nfl in a huge hole, the first game of the 1996 season is new england at pittsburgh, always a real carnival atmosphere. football is back and everybody is happy. the story is where is tom brady? he is not in the lineup because the nfl branded him a cheater. i know that's not what the nfl wants. that is not going to prevent
10:20 pm
them from making a decision. charlie: it reminds me of my friend brian williams. every time you see a tabloid story, it is lying brian. this will become cheating tom. peter: i will say this. i know we're not talking about this but as somebody who watches "nbc nightly news" and i've watched brian williams for six years most nights, i thought he was tremendous. i really feel for him. i think it's a classic case in life where i would like to see him get another shot. i understand the argument against him. it is the same thing about tom brady. the rest of his life people will
10:21 pm
look at him and say there's the guy that nfl brought to the hammer down. charlie: great to see you. back in a moment. stay with us. ♪
10:22 pm
10:23 pm
charlie: david mccullough is here. he has been called a master of the art of narrative history. he twice won the pulitzer prize and is a recipient of the presidential medal of freedom. he has written 11 books including "1776" and "john adams." his latest piece of history is called, "the wright brothers" and tells the story of two bicycle mechanics who taught the
10:24 pm
world how to fly. i'm pleased to have david mccullough back at the table. welcome. this is the completion of a trilogy. david: that is exactly right. the first book was about the building of the brooklyn bridge. the second about the building of the panama canal and now this. and all three of those extraordinary accomplishments took place in a handful of years in the late 19th century and the first 10 years of the 20th century. and each in its own way was a major breakthrough without any historical precedent. this one more obviously changed the world.
10:25 pm
man had never flown a motor powered machine into the air before. and when that happened, it was clear to a few but not to all, that this was one of the decisive turning points in history. what was so surprising, many of things were surprising to me in writing the book, what is so surprising is that you imagine they flew the first time the kitty hawk in 1903 everybody realized it was terrific and would change the world. it was not until 1908 that the world was ready to realize that yes, man can fly. we had set our minds, that was impossible. and as so often happens with in many aspects of life, seldom so dramatically -- charlie: what is it about the people that do this? they do not quit. david: that is right. they do not to give up. and i really think it had to do something to do with where they came from. ohio. midwestern america.
10:26 pm
that's not to say there are lots of other people from elsewhere that do not give up. harry truman never gave up. midwestern american from very humble origins as these were. and they have purpose, charlie. they have a purpose in mind and it probably sounds like a bad pun, high purpose they were determined to achieve no matter what. and every time either of them went up into one of their experimental planes, he was risking his life. it took tremendous courage and character and surprisingly for me was to see what extent of the -- their use of the english language was a major importance in their success. they were raised by an itinerant
10:27 pm
minister father who insisted that they use language both on paper and on their feet. and you read their letters and you think that neither one of them ever finished high school. it is humbling their use of the language and their humor and their foresight and everything. they grew up in a house that had no running water. no indoor plumbing. no electricity. no telephone. but it had books. the father insisted that they read and only read what he felt was important, fiction and history. natural history and philosophy and the classics and everything, including the work of the famous agnostic ingersoll even though he was a protestant itinerant preacher, the father. he wanted a broad mind. charlie: wilbur was the dominant brother.
10:28 pm
david: dominant and a genius. orville was very bright inventive, and genius mechanically. wilbur was really the genius and the big brother. he was the leader. it would not have happened without both of them. two heads were better than one. they are good examples of that. charlie: when did they have the idea? david: they had the idea they could learn to glide. charlie: to use wind? david: to use the wind and ride the wind and they studied the birds of north carolina. charlie: i love that. the idea of seeing them out there trying to flap their wings. david: people thought that they were wacko, nut cases. charlie: they were studying. david: they were studying the birds.
10:29 pm
orville said learning to fly by studying birds is like learning magic from a magician. and they figured it out. nobody ever had. and then they had to fly. they were theorists that had exciting and very ingenious ideas. wilbur once said that there are two ways to train a wild horse one is to sit on the fence and study and go to your comfortable chair in your living room and write your theory about how to train a horse and the other way to get on the horse and ride it. exactly. they were bicycle mechanics. exactly as you said the only way to ride a bicycle is to ride a bicycle. they not only had the skill and the ingenuity and the genius to create a glider that would do more than any other glider had
10:30 pm
but they had courage to do it. they were not defeated by failure. they learned from their mistakes. that is a marvelous lesson for all of us to learn. charlie: i guess it was orville who told a friend, it is not true to say we had a special advantage, the greatest favor was growing up in a family where there was much encouragement. charlie: for better or worse. david: how you were raised, the manners you were taught, what we are taught about loyalty and telling the truth and taught about being kind to people? all that begins at home. and the dinner table. and the conversations about behavior and aspirations. their father was an exceptional
10:31 pm
teacher. and their sister who was important in this story, i'm have to say i brought a lot of trouble and time and effort bringing her front and center stage because she deserves it. she was bright. she was bossy. she was funny. she was opinionated. she had a temper. she could get wrathy. she was always there when they needed her. she was as bright as could be. she was only one of the group who went to college. charlie: does she remind you of you emily roebling? david: yes, sir. and abigail adams. really very strongly. and i think that the story would not have come out the way it is did, had it not been for her. i think one of the joys of the
10:32 pm
work i do is to give credit new where credit is long overdue. charlie: and find unrecognized characters. david: we need lessons in appreciation and so many of these people we just hear about them in school, history courses for about 10 minutes and we move on. the wright brothers were the clever mechanics, the mechanics and they invented the airplane. that's hardly a fraction of the story. the idea they had tremendous interest in art and architecture and photography. there was no -- they were fully alive intellectually, mentally but they also had this driving sense of purpose that i feel is essential to high achievement on that scale, on that level. charlie: what was that? david: purpose.
10:33 pm
charlie: i do, too. david: they were not trying to make a lot of money or achieve fame. they did not like the limelight. they avoided it. charlie: were they trying to change the world? david: they were sure that man could do this and they thought they had the answer and they did. and they had no money. the entire expenses, all of the expenses for the first plane in 1903 was less than $1000. samuel langely and his group at the smithsonian spent $70,000 trying to build an airplane that would fly and it flew into the potomac river. charlie: what did they not understand? david: they did not understand you have to get on the horse and ride it. charlie: yes, yes.
10:34 pm
what was the role of photography? david: they loved photography and were interested in technical reason. it was advancing very rapidly. a if you look at the photograph on the cover of the book or inside front page. that is a sharp as anything we can take today. it is unbelievable. from the original glass plate. and photography had been revolutionized and they were fascinated by it and they also wanted to record everything they did in order to protect themselves from people who would violate their patents. charlie: was it a race? david: no. i do not think they saw it. charlie: often in discoveries, medical discoveries, there is a race. the human genome. a huge race. david: they were aware of other people trying to do what they were doing. mostly samuel langley.
10:35 pm
charlie: did anybody come close? david: really nothing to them. no. charlie: and a supporter of the wright brothers compare the achievement to that of christopher columbus. david: yes. charlie: you? david: yes, absolutely. charlie: they discovered further worlds. david: you and i and everybody today goes everywhere, last year at o'hare in chicago, 70 million people flew in and out of that one airport. charlie: 70 million? david: yes. 1903 was not that long ago. i could have known orville wright. he did not die until 1948. i would've been 15 years old. he could have been that nice old fellow around the corner. charlie: 1958? david: 1948.
10:36 pm
this is all out. you cannot imagine a more dramatic change and hugely changed horrors of warfare. he lived to see jet propulsion. he lived to see rockets. it all happened very fast wants -- once they got to the key. charlie: you said history fosters optimism in comparison to the hubris. david: yes. i feel that way. charlie: tell me what you mean. david: first of all, it shows there was no simpler time ever. the there was no simpler time ever. and anybody who thinks that, the time that passed was very difficult and very heartbreaking and destructive. suffering of the extreme. mistakes made caused anguish of thousands of millions of people. but we came out of those dark
10:37 pm
times, we human beings. we do figure out what went wrong. and how to fix it. and we do make extraordinary improvements in the quality of life. look at what is happening in medicine here in my lifetime. unbelievable. and -- charlie: we are on the precipice of so much, it is unbelievable. david: look at what we have achieved in our universities. yes, they are expensive. we have created the world, the greatest ever in the world. all here. all in a manner of a few hundred years. why are all of these very bright will young people from all over the world trying to come here to go to college and universities? it is the greatest in the world. charlie: 18 of the top 20.
10:38 pm
david: that is very promising. very exciting. and i think that if we have leadership that calls upon us to serve and then there's really no end of what we can do. that is my optimism. it has been 50 years since we have had a president of the united states who called upon us to ask to do something for our country. i mean jack kennedy. charlie: the moon. david: if these young people were called upon -- charlie: they will see what this president needs or leader needs is to show the country needs to have a moon project. a bold vision we can get here if we apply ourselves and i'm going to put my own credibility on the line to say that we do not do this. david: you can use this story of
10:39 pm
the wright brothers. they set themselves on the path to achieve the unachievable. kennedy said we are going to go to the moon and we did. and they flew. charlie: you call what you do a calling. david: yes, i do. charlie: how is it a calling for you? it is simply -- you tell me. david: i want to bring to life the best that can be found in the story of why we are the way we are and how we got to where we are. it does not mean it is all good news, all wonderful. not by any means. i think what really happened is not only as interesting as stories that are concocted but
10:40 pm
often more interesting. i have always thought of myself as a writer. not a historian. i'm writing about what really happens. i am not going to make anything up. i'm not going to change any facts and figures. charlie: what is the gift? you have the calling, what is the gift? david: telling the story. there's no trick to history. i tell stories. that is what it is. and great stories. charlie: and stories about real things and real people. david: we should not just think of history as politics and the military which is a huge part of it. it is not everything. that is why i have done what i've done with her book and others i've written are not about politics. yes, politics and the military entered in but not about that. i think the future historians
10:41 pm
looking back on our time are going to be talking about other things in politics and military that we achieved in our time or mistakes we have made other than politics. charlie: you have said all of your books are about one of the first books you read, the little engine that could. [laughter] charlie: that is the common denominator. david: i think i can, i think i can. as i was saying, how we are brought up. that is the kind of book that i was raised on. charlie: i love this. orville wright said no bird soars in a calm. so fundamental, so true. david: adversity helps. the old irish saying may the wind always be at your back. charlie: i love that. david: they take the reverse. you need the wind and to give you the lift. charlie: you got an honorary degree from yale. you got this salutation -- a
10:42 pm
historian that paints with words. pictures of the american people that live, breathe and above all confront the fundamental issues of courage and achievable. most of the people have moral character? david: yes. john adams, abigail adams, harry truman. charlie: why have you never written about lincoln? david: too big. too big a subject. huge. it has been done. charlie: as soon as i hear you say that, i resist the idea. i resist the idea because too often people will say it has been done. and then someone of the skills of david mccullough do it and they say, wow. david: thank you. i admire the people who have written about lincoln.
10:43 pm
i like to have the discovery. charlie: you do not think there's much new to discover? david: i do not. this book, coming upon the private letters between wilbur and their sister -- charlie: how did you come upon them? david: they are in the library of congress. much has been written. there have been fine books written about the wright brothers and they deal primarily with the aviation side. i was interested in it that, of course, but equally are more in the human side. that can be found in the private correspondence which is spectacular. they pour out their innermost feelings and there are over 1000 letters. just between the father and daughter and two brothers. and none of them are capable of writing a dull letter. charlie: have we lost that? david: yes. we do not write letters or keep
10:44 pm
diaries. no one in public life would dare keep a diary. i do not know what future historians and biographers will have to work with. and -- charlie: john adams wrote voluminously. david: and abigail. there were thousands of letters between them. charlie: have you been to the public theater to see the play the musical "hamilton?" david: not yet but i'm eager. charlie: get it on your agenda. great to see you. david: charlie, is always a treat to be your guest. thank you. charlie: how is your wife? david: she is perfect. she is my editor in chief and my guiding star. she is the mission control for our family. chair of the ethics committee. charlie: send her my best. david: she is marvelous. thank you. we have been married 60 years.
