7:32 am
>> people who changed each other's lives. >> mary france was standing up for you. >> i get to see her and it makes it more urgent the older i get. >> ann curry is with us now only on "cbs this morning." >> hi, everybody. so great to see you. >> great to see you. >> thanks for having me. >> we're going to talk a lot about my show but i do think a lot of people want to hear from you because this is your first television interview and a lot has changed in the television landscape on morning television in the last three months. our former co-host charlie rose has left. someone you anchored with, matt lauer has left his broadcast. what do you make of this reckoning? >> i think it's, frankly long overdue. we clearly are waking up to a reality and injustice that's been occurring for some time,
7:33 am
and i think it will continue to occur until the glass ceiling is finally broke b. this is about power and power imbalance where women are not valued as much as men. i'm not talking about men being attracted to other people. i'm talking about people in the workplace who are powerful, who are abusing that power, and women and men are suffering. and i think the fact that people are speaking out is important. and the fact that we are moving against this imbalance of power is absolutely overdue. >> do you believe that matt lauer abused his power. >> you know, i'm trying not do harm in these conversations. i can tell you i am not surprised by the allegations. >> what do you mean by that, ann? you heard things, knew things? what does that mean?
7:34 am
>> that means -- you know, i'm walking down that road. i'm trying not to hurt people. i know what it's like to be publicly humiliated. i never did anything wrong to be publicly humiliated and i don't want to cause that kind of pain to somebody else. i can say that i -- because you're asking me a very direct question, i can say that i would be surprised if many women did not understand that there was a climate of verbal harassment that existed. i think it would be surprising if someone said that they didn't see that. it was verbal sexual harassment. >> wait a minute. she just said verbal sexual harassment was pervasive at the time. >> i don't want to -- boy. i don't want to cause more pain. you're asking me a very direct question.
7:35 am
i'm an honest person, i want the tell you that it was, yes, period. >> i wanted to pick up on the notion of power because in the court of public opinion, it was viewed that a powerful man meaning matt lauer derailed your career. i know in this crazy business of ours, it's their sandbox. by that i mean managers. they decide who plays. it can happen to any one of us at any time. in your opinion, many thought matt lauer was behind you leaving the "today" show. i'd like to know what you feel about that. we've never talked about it. i always wondered. your last day was very emotional, very difficult for you clearly and i don't want to upset you here either. >> oh, don't worry. i'm not going start crying. >> do you believe -- >> you know, you should ask someone else. i'm not the one to ask about that. >> you're the only one to ask. >> no, no, because i don't know what all was behind it. i do know it hurt like hell, it
7:36 am
wasn't a fun moment, i've learned a great deal about myself. i've at this point let it go. i just let it go, and i think it's time -- it's been everything, and i want to sort of really move on from that. it's -- you know, at this point, i'm thinking hakuna matata. it's over. but, no. i think the real question in my view is what are we going to do with all of this anger. and it's not just obviously about where i used to work. it's not about where you're now working. it's about the problem that's across industries, in workplaces across america and this is actually the issue and the question is ultimately what are we going to do about it. i wonder if we -- if we keep focusing over on these individual scandals if we're going to move off of that foot into creating something better in the future. >> though each of the personal stories add to this personal
7:37 am
conversation. you tweeted "me too" in october. what did you mean? >> i think what i just said. the idea that i don't know a single woman. i don't know a single woman who has not endured some form of sexual harassment, and many women have endured workplace sexual harassment. it's happened to me in multiple jobs, and it is a way of sidelining women. you know, it's ultimately not only bad for the women, but it's bad for the companies and bad for our nation because it's limiting people. really, also, we should be talking about the victims. we're talking about the scandal, the scandal, the scandal. what are we going to do about the victims? what are we going to remove the stigma and shame and make sure
7:38 am
these women are working and not sidelined and prevented from contributing to the greater good. >> what are we going? we're talking about a power imbalance that as you say goes outside the workplace. how does that change? does that mean more women executives? does it mean taking women? >> absolutely, john. i this i that until the glass ceiling is broken, until the balance of power is even. and, remember, that women are one to one in this country and for many years we are the majority, right? so until that balance actually occurs, then the culture that we're talking about that enables the diminishing of women will continue. and this is really what we need to fix, and this is why -- one of the reasons why breaking the glass ceiling is so important. >> well, there are two women anchoring the "today" show as you know. savannah and hoda. savannah said it was one of the most popular decisions ever made. did you ever think you'd see that? two women at the table? >> no. as you know, many women on the broadcasts are women. it's overwhelmingly women. the idea that women are involved
7:39 am
speaking to women is actually an overdue idea. so absolutely i think it's a good idea. >> all right. and one thing, ann. you said it hurt like hell, you learned a lot about yourself. what is the one thing you learned about yourself that you want us to know? >> about me, not so much, but all of us. when we open our arms wide to life, all the good and bad, if we can just open ourselves wide to it and embrace it, we can learn what we need to learn and we can go on and become better people. and i hope that i've done that. that's it. >> i think norah said it best when she said your much anticipated return. a lot of people love and care about you and we're glad you're back. >> you're going to stay for our 8:30 hour. >> yes, to talk about my show. >> we're getting there. >> it's so good. it's what you do best. >> well, i'm exciting to tell these stories. >> yeah. >> we'll see ann curry back here in our next hour to talk about

8:06 am
couldn't remember what the president of the united states, the commander in chief, her boss was saying. she didn't remember lindsey graham who challenged the president on his vile words yesterday. it was so offensive to me she lied under oath. it's not -- everybody wants to say it's about the profanity. it's not about the profanity. it's that the president of the united states, would speak in such a bigoted manner against such large groups of people represented here in this country as our fellow american citizens. >> you called it a moral moment for the country. it seemed really to strike a nerve with you. what do you mean? >> well, all of us know our history in this country and throughout the world in places like europe that so many folks , the opposite of justice is not injustice, it's silence, it's inaction. in other words, the perpetrators of bigotry and hate that is really bad, but what is the worst thing that allows hatred and bigotry to proliferate are people who stand by and do
8:07 am
nothing when it's said. when in america when we witness sexism or sentiments against catholics or muslims or jews or blacks, those of us who stand by and do nothing are complicit in that ignorance. we all have to as americans say if you come after a catholic american, a haitian american, a nigerian american you're coming after me and i will defend that. >> what do you did you think of the republican, senator? the oval office is not a big space. the president of the united states is speaking. most people now when they go in the oval office, you're listening with both ears thatto anything that the president has to say. to have republicans say i didn't hear it or it's mischaracterized, what do you make of that? and what should be done about that? >> well, i mean the one thing, i'm not going to take it. that's why i did get very upset sitting there, and i'm one of the junior members of that committee so i had to listen to her over and over again tell lies to my colleagues. i'm just not going to take it. all of us should not be silent.
8:08 am
you're right, how dramatic that is. i've been in the oval office and had meetings with president obama, of small groups, large groups, one on one, when you're in that room it is a sacred space in our country. you are -- all your senses are heightened. you know what the president of the united states is saying. especially in heated conversations and back and forth. so there's no way i buy that. i tell you, talking to others, everybody knows that this is a lie, it's a sham, an it's not -- what hurts me is why? why would an american under oath lie to protect their job? again, that speaks to a dark history on this planet of people obeying orders, doing their job, while they're witnessing injustice, witnessing things that are words coming from power that don't just dissipate in the wind, they give license to people. understand we've had 85 vicious attacks, terroristic attacks, since 9/11. over 70% of them have been from

8:10 am
any deal brought to them. lindsey graham and dick durbin and other colleagues on both sides of the aisle, hammered out a deal, it wasn't perfect to me, aspects i didn't like, it was a deal if put on the floor dealing with daca and d.r.e.a.m.ers would have gotten over 70 votes. they rejected that deal. so this is an artificial moment -- >> can't mcconnell put that on the floor? >> he should put it on the floor. and remember this whole deadline was not created by some mechanism or policy. this was the president of the united states that created this moment of jeopardy and crisis. a man who is obviously president of the united states where republicans control the house and senate and claims to be the greatest deal maker that god ever created. well i'll tell you what, this is a time to make a deal and get america out of this crisis. we all agree it's important, urgent work to do but i am not going to leave american citizens behind and i know technically these folks are not american citizens but they are in every way but a piece of paper. they serve in our military, they're our first responders and

internment camp but the two of them had a little separation too. >> that's right. i think maybe that's one reason why we resonated. my father was an occupation soldier, my mother a war bride. they were 18 years old and they fell in love. my father went to the navy and i wanted to marry this woman. you couldn't marry her. they were trying to help him not commit to something at 18 years old. they sent him to morocco for two years and he kept trying to get back and they wouldn't let him come back. so finally, he came back and he went to my mother's -- my mother was a rice farmer's daughter way up in the mountains, you know, found her and reunion, they were sobbing and hugging and he stepped away because he realized something was wrong. she had -- he found out because she was so excskeletal that shes
8:34 am
dying of tuberculosis. you could marry a japanese woman but you couldn't marry a sick one. they got together. the story goes on from there but probably don't have time this morning. >> one of the interesting things too, we'll meet aga"we'll meet series made me think about people i want to go back and meet from my childhood. it was hard for you to create these reunions and find people. you think with the internet we could find anybody we want but actually not so much. there's a lot of excavation that has to happen talking to librarians and jeanologists. >> these small brief moments in their lives. they feel it with so much meaning and import after 5i78 years. >> the dlip you just saw these women have been waiting for more than 70 years to see each other and what's really amazing is mary francis doesn't remember the very tall woman, doesn't
8:35 am
remember what she had done but what she had done was showed friendship at a time when other kids were throwing rocks and adults were saying bad things too all japanese americans in these -- in certain communities because of the bombing of pearl harbor and so this little girl on the right of your screen mary frances, she reached out to reko. she showed her way. when she came back from the internment camps it was mary frances that walked up to her and grabbed her hand and pulled her into the playground and she doesn't even remember -- she doesn't even remember what she did so the idea that we could commit an act of kindness that might change someone's life and to have her be surprised by having reko say thank you so much. it was just lovely to watch them reunite. we had had our head sets on so they could have that moment alone. we wanted to honor that and respect that. we were all sobbing including
8:36 am
the cameraman. >> when you're with reko at the internment camp where she's thinking about her parents. she wasn't sad for herself but the impetus their parents felt having their family be taken to this place and have a make a life there. >> she was born in america and she's i couldn't control my country for my parents. her parents were immigrants and they suffered so much because they were suffering because their kids were suffering in that little -- as you can see in that screen where they were staying inside the internment camp. she went back to the very room and building where it happened. so, yeah, what you see is history not just from the point of view of presidents and generals. you hear the history from the point of view of the common man and woman and how they were caught up in it and how they will needed each other to survive. i actually think it's a story of all of us because throughout all of our ancestries there were people who had to survive these kinds of world changing events and it was because of others,
8:37 am
whether it was their families or strangers that we even exist. this is a story of all of us. >> it's also a nice history lesson for different events. mount saint helen's i was -- you looked like you need a hug. she did not realize the impact that that hug had on that man's life all these years later and he wanted to find her. >> he was actually in the hotel between with the two towers and barely escaped with his life. they met at the size where she was a photographer's assistant and she just saw him slumped up against the wall, you look like you needed a hug and she took care of them. she's a young 20 something and he's a businessman from the midwest. he was so traumatized by what he had experienced. she walked him out. she made sure he was fed. she didn't let him out of her sight until she knew that he had someplace to go.
8:38 am
he wanted to say thank you for this and it's just -- in some of the stories are about true heroism where someone comes in and rescues someone and sometimes there are these stories we talk about, just the kindness that we can each show for another and how this can have an impact that we may not even fully know. >> we know all your kindness and thank you for sharing. great to see you back on tv. we'll see more after these six episodes. >> you know, there's already in development, yes. >> we'll take that as a yes. we're on it. >> we want to see it. >> i think you're going to be flooded by requests of someone in their life they want to meet again. >> it's been great to sit with you. >> we'll meet again premiers tuesday on pbs, january 23rd. and you can hear more from ann in this week's issue of "people" magazine as well. >> anthony bourdain says chef hawker fair is one of the most important he's ever visited.

8:43 am
wood. it has red pepper. >> it infuses it. you don't eat it. >> it's very vivacious, very rich. >> unlike anything i've ever had. >> that's anthony bourdain dining with chef james syhabout in laos. he fled laos with his family when he was young after it fell to communism in 1975. hay arrived in oakland. he went from refugee to culinary rock star. he's the force behind two michelin restaurants. hawker fare focuses on his childhood cuisine. >> the chef's book is called "hawker fare." syhabout has done more than any other person in the world to get the world out about this unfairly unnecessarily secret country and cuisine.
8:44 am
"hawker fare" is published by bourdain's imprint. good morning. why is laos cuisine still a secret? >> i think we've been eating it but it's, in fact, ethically coming from a far region. so we're familiar with at least a general outline of a lot of those flavors and dishes and chances are we already deeply love them. >> there's more to it besides just the common dishes. >> james, you write in this book and there's great little intros about your country and you and your family which i think is so rich with history. you write, just like the u.s. campaign to drop an f-load of
8:45 am
bombs on the war, laos is a secret country. what is some of the most well known? >> i think bamboo shoots. you don't see it commonly in thai restaurants. a lot of them are bitter flavors you're not accustomed to in laos food and thai food. we use things that are not unfiltered. it's not the clear food you typically see on the supermarket shelves. that's where the flavor bomb come from and makes it different. >> what happened when you first tried common thai food? >> first common thai food was my mom's restaurant growing up. it was like what we used to cook
8:46 am
for ourselves and what we serve on the menu, i was like, mom, what are you doing. >> she was like this is what americans want. they don't understand. >> how far was the distance between the two? >> fairly far. not even a resemblance. >> you describe this book as an apology of sorts to your parents. you say you were embarrassed and ashamed that you abandoned your roots of laos cooking and then you went to culinary school to focus on high dining and then you realized, hey, my roots are okay. tell us about that. >> because of laos food and thai food that's how i got interested in cooking. i could see my future career-wise in laos cuisine. i took the common -- opened up michelin star restaurants and i thought, you know what? i need to pay homage to how i
8:47 am
got started. it's kind of a shame i didn't know how to cook this food i grew up on. >> you know, anthony, food is also about hospitality and you write laosian people are some of the moist food-crazy hospitable people you have ever met and you've traveled the world. >> true. it's increasingly the kind of flavors that fine dining chefs create after work. spice and funk. >> do you like to eat funk? >> yeah. kimchi, the flavor of fermentation. >> got it. >> for me what's exciting about this boom and so many of the kbrt cookbooks and chef stories is the story of cultural identity. the history of the world as one told me is in this plate. it's telling a story, often a very personal one, a very old story. so to me this is very much a
8:48 am
book about what it means to be american, who's cooking in america now, what is american food, all these things that we value and care about. a story of, you know, a struggle to find and reconnect with ethnic and cultural identity. these are really relevant questions given current times. >> this is one of the best endorsements you can have for a book. anthony bourdain says this book will make you a better person before you even try a recipe. if i could cook, i'd make something. >> food for the soul and food for the tummy. >> food for the soul and tummy is right. always good to have you at the table. >> thank you. >> "hawker fare" goes on sale next tuesday wherever you like to buy your books. coming up next, friends in the cbs family for skplerns in broadcast journalism and we
