system and said, quote, boring musician john legend and his filt mouth wife chrissy teigen didn't help. chrissy sarcastically saying, it is an honor, mr. president and john legend said, imagine being president of a whole country and spending your sunday night hate watching msnbc hoping somebody, anybody will praise you. talks are at a standstill after president trump called off a secret meeting with the taliban at camp david planned for yesterday. negotiations were cancelled in the wake of a deadly attack that the taliban claimed credit for now, the administration is facing bipartisan backlash over the timing of the proposed talks. nbc's hans nichols has more. >> reporter: america's preparing to inflict more pain on th plo matt on all five major >> reporter: america's top dip sunday morninge 9/11 anniversary

respect, and i think you can make a case that these risks are worth taking. oued that he wants to bring that number down, to 8,600 as part of a peace deal, but today that decision is being reviewed, and pompeo seemed intentionally ambiguous about how many troops would remain meanwhile a spokesperson for the taliban says that they will continue to fight to put an end to the total occupation of afghanistan. frances. >> all right, hans thank you. jeffrey epstein is spurring a reckoning at some of the nation's most prestigious universities even after his death. this weekend a top official at massachusetts institute of technology resigned after several reports detailed his financial connections to the alleged sex trafficker joichi ito stepped down as director at the lab at mit and also left a visiting professorship at harvard in a letter to the community, the president of mit promised an investigation into epstein's donations. new allegations this morning surrounding the case of harvey
weinstein and how critical gwyneth paltrow was in bringing allegations against him forward. ron mott joins us with more. good morning >> good morning, frances a new book out tomorrow reveals among other things that the actress gwyneth paltrow played a much more active role in organizing voices against her one-time mentor, the movie mogul harvey weinstein before sexual abuse allegations surfaced publicly against the hollywood produce harvey weinstein, one of his most prominent performers, actress gwyneth paltrow, was quietly working behind the scenes to expose her mentor as a predator, this according to an article in "the new york times" about an explosive new book set for release this week called "she said" by "times" journalists jodi kantor and megan twohey, whose reporting helped inspire the me too movement. in an interview on "cbs sunday morning," the reporters discussed paltrow's role in building the momentum, sharing her own story and recruiting other actresses to speak that momentum eventually resulted in criminal charges
against weinstein who goes to trial early next year in manhattan. >> she did play a much more active role than anybody's ever known, but it was hair-raising for her because harvey weinstein had been such an important influence. >> reporter: paltrow told radio host howard stern last year that weinstein sexually harassed her in a hotel room in 1995, and how her boyfriend at the time, the actor brad pitt, confronted the producer >> what he did was he leveraged his fame and power to protect me at a time when i didn't have fame or power yet. >> reporter: another detail revealed in the book, according to the "times," two years before the bombshell accusations against his brother, bob weinstein also confronted him, pleading with him to get medical treatment for his misbehavior, writing in a letter, you have brought shame to the family and your company through your misbehavior. if you think nothing is wrong with your misbehavior so in this area, then announce it to your wife and family. weinstein, the "times" also reports, mistakenly viewed his
brother's problem as a sex addiction and eventually abandoned his attempts to intervene. lawyers for bob weinstein told nbc news in a statement that harvey promised bob he would take his advice and seek help but apparently never did they say bob was unaware of allegations against harvey for nonconsensual sexual behavior before they became public. frances? >> all right ron mott for us. thank you. breaking overnight, an urgent search-and-rescue mission is under way in georgia for four missing crew members they were on a south korean tanker when it capsized just 80 miles south of savannah. 23 crew members and one pilot were onboard the ship, which is longer than two football fields, was carrying a shipment of hyundai and kia cars when it overturned and caught fire 20 people were rescued, but officials had to put the rescue efforts on hold after the fire and smoke became too much. >> once salvage professionals have determined the vessel to be stable, we will identify the best option to continue our
