one former correspondent is accused of rape while two high-profile hosts are accused of sexual harassment. we hear from the alleged victims. bridge to justice. the lessons of john lewis' sacrifice in selma from a cbs news correspondent who was there. first, here's today's "eye opener." your world in 90 seconds. >> given 2,000 healthy adults a vaccine, it did generate neutralizing antibody in all participants. >> researchers say one of the leading contenders for a coronavirus vaccine is showing real results. >> it may be that the vaccine is going to come riding over the hill like the cavalry. but we just can't count on it right now. >> president trump is vowing to take his portland strategy of federal officers to other u.s. cities. >> these are anarchists. and the politicians out there, yes, they are weak, but they're afraid of these people.
>> the man wanted for a deadly shooting at a federal judge's house has been found dead. >> he lewas a known anti-femini. >> two fox news hosts are being sued for sexual harassment and a former anchor is being accused of rape. >> i cannot continue to see predator behavior rewarded. >> the missouri husband and wife supporting a gun at protesters have been charged with unlawful use of a weapon. >> the pomeranian is the perfect yoga buddy. she knows all the poses and is small enough she doesn't need her own mat. gape kapler becoming the first big leaguer to kneel during the national anthem. he and some of the san francisco giants kneeled before their exhibition game. ♪ >> on cbs this morning. >> this weekend, we lost a giant. friend of the show and friend of the america we all aspire to, congressman john lewis.
throughout his career fighting for civil rights, lewis repeatedly put his body on the line as a freedom rider, at the edmund pettus bridge. at the age of 76, crowd surfing the audience at the ed sullivan theater. ♪ >> this morning's "eye opener" is presented by toyota. >> welcome to "cbs this morning." friend of the stephen colbert show indeed. you don't want to be the person to drop john lewis in the crowd. i've been arrested, beaten. i can certainly crowd surf in the stephen colbert show. that was a great moment. i remember that. >> i do, too. that showed courage. if you didn't believe in his courage before, that showed courage. >> indeed. >> yeah. he was well protected that night. we're going to begin with the increasingly urgent fight in
washington. urgent to respond to the coronavirus. president trump is scheduled to appear at his first coronavirus task force briefing in almost three months. but with the case numbers and the deaths on the rise, the white house is accused of opposing funds for more testing and contact tracing as part of a new stimulus bill. >> the trump administration is also facing pushback for pressuring schools to reopen, even in hard-hit areas. ben tracy has our report from the white house. >> this is a pandemic that is flaring up all over the place. >> reporter: president trump is attempting a course correction. for months, he's downplayed the importance of masks. but on monday, he tweeted a picture of himself wearing one. saying some call it patriotic. however, a few hours later, the president was seen not wearing one at a fundraiser at his hotel in washington. mr. trump also met with top republican leaders to work out their differences for the next coronavirus stimulus bill.
the administration wants funding for schools that reopen and liability protections and tax credits for businesses. republicans also want to cut down the $600 enhanced weekly unemployment benefit due to expire next week. the administration is not publicly supporting more funding for testing and contact tracing which democrats and many senate republicans support. >> our lack of testing and contact tracing has led to the crisis being much greater in the u.s. than in most other countries. trump wants to block that money for testing. for contact tracing. >> reporter: faced with polls showing voters trust joe biden more to handle the coronavirus response, president trump is reviving his coronavirus briefings which he says had historic ratings. but the president stopped those briefings in april after being widely criticized for attacking governors, contradicting his own experts and seeming to suggest americans ingest disinfectants.
>> is there a way we can do something like that? by injection inside or almost a cleaning? >> reporter: white house officials won't say if president trump will be joined by actual health experts at these briefings such as dr. anthony fauci. in a nonmove, the president decided to resume these on a day when vice president mike pence is actually out of town. pence is the head of the white house coronavirus task force. >> we'll be watching. ben, thank you. teachers in florida are taking legal action to try to stop school openings amid the pandemic. the state of florida has now topped 360,000 total cases since the crisis began. but governor ron desantis is still insistng on in-person classes. our lead national correspondent david begnaud is in miami beach. quite the face-off here. what's really going on? >> so, tony, look. the governor is standing his ground saying the schools have to reopen for in-person classes.
he's almost being as strong about that as he has about mask mandates, not issuing a statewide mask mandate order. in fact, florida is the only state along the gulf coast that doesn't have some kind of order statewide telling people to wear masks. that kind of conviction from the governor is leading to public outbursts of criticism. watch this. >> you had been infected, then you -- >> reporter: yet again, florida's governor was heckled at a public event. this time pleading for convalescent plasma donations. >> donate your plasma. it's very, very important. you can make a difference in people's health and in their lives. >> reporter: the need is critical. jeff gierson is on a ventilator fighting for his life. six days ago they told his wife he could benefit from a plasma transfusion. but that donor blood wasn't readily available. >> when you are told that they are eligible for plasma or that plasma may help them.
this is not the time have to plead for someone who has the potential to donate to do so. we have minutes, hours, maybe a day to get that medicine to our family members and time is crucial. so in my husband's case, it's a little too late, but i'm hoping somebody doesn't have to go through this pain. >> reporter: meanwhile, the florida education association is taking aim at the governor with a lawsuit looking to halt his plan to reopen schools next month. carla hernandez-mats teaches middle school in miami-dade county. >> it is ludicrous to think that now, when the fire is even hotter, when the buildings are really burning, that we would take our children out of these protective bubbles that we've created. we can mitigate learning losses, but the reality is we cannot mitigate loss of life. >> reporter: the florida education foundation is the
largest teachers union in the state. their lawsuit believe issed to be the first of its kind. it accuses the governor of violating his constitutional mandate to keep schools safe and secure. if you are a coronavirus survivor and you can donate that plasma go to oneblood.org. it will save lives. >> yes, yes, yes. that's very important information. thank you david. u.s. surgeon general and vice admiral jerome adams joins us now. he's a member of the white house coronavirus task force. dr. adams, it's really good to see you. let's start where david left off with the schools. you are a doctor of course. you are also a father. what needs to happen for schools to reopen safely? i realize different states have different needs but generally speaking, what needs to be done for the schools to be okay for kids to go back this august, this september? >> well, good morning, gayle. thank you for that question. i have a 16, a 14 and
10-year-old so this is very personal to me. and what i want people to know is the biggest determinant of whether or not we can go back to school actually has little to nothing to do with the actual schools. it's your background transmission rate. and it's why we've told people constantly that if we want to get back to school, to worship, to regular life, folks need to wear face coverings. folks need to practice social distancing. that's going to lower the transmission rate. we've seen in norway, in denmark, when they start with a low background transmission rate, they were able to safely reopen schools with minimal to no transmission among young people, particularly people under the age of 10 or 12. now cdc has recommendations -- >> what do you say, though, doctor -- yeah, go ahead. >> cdc has recommendations for things that you can do in schools, but again, the most important thing is what we do outside of schools before we reopen to lower the transmission rate. the government has a role but i want people to understand, we as
individuals have a role, too, to do what we can and that includes wearing face coverings. >> okay. but you still have teachers, parents that say wearing face coverings, do young that's really it? if your kid goes back to school and they have face coverings, you think that's safe enough? >> oh, no, gayle, that's part of the equation when you're in school. what i'm saying is we need to be doing that now before schools open so we can lower the transmission rate in schools. we also have to protect the older people, the teachers, the family members that these students may live with because we know the risk is low to the actual students. but we know that they can transmit to others. and so i don't want to in any way shape or form diminish the potential impact to teachers. we need to make sure we can protect those who are vulnerable either because they're older or have chronic medical conditions. >> let's talk about testing. we still have issues with the testing. now it appears the white house doesn't want to support extra funding for testing.
what's the thinking behind that? >> what i can tell you from our deliberations on the task force, in the last bill, there was $10 billion allocated for testing. and only about $36 million has been drawn down from that fund. so some of the debate is not about whether we need more testing or need more of that in communities. but it's really about whether or not we have even spent the money that's been allocated. we all agree we need more testing, more contact tracing, more isolation. but again, we also have to have a lower community prevalence rate. and i hate to keep harping, but the american people, i need you to hear me. testing, isolation and contact tracing doesn't work when you have got out of control spread in communities. and so we need to understand that the way we get all of this to function is by getting people to commit to wearing face coverings, to not getting in crowded gatherings, to maintaining six feet of social
distance. that lowers the prevalence and everything else starts to function. >> do you think the president is finally on board about wearing a mask? he seems to be changing his messaging on that. >> well, i am a physician, not a political pundit, and it doesn't do me any good to get in back and forths about the president. what i can tell you is i'm very pleased he actually is now wearing a face covering. medically, he's tested more than anyone. so from a medical standpoint, i understand why he chooses not to. but i am glad that he has said that this is a patriotic thing to do. this supports your freedom. it's something i've been saying for four months now. >> all right. and the task force briefings are going to resume today. will you, dr. fauci and dr. birx be in attendance? >> they are still figuring that out. i know as they resume, we will be there in our different roles. as folks know, i'm a strong advocate for making sure we are promoting the awareness of the impact on communities of color,
particularly african-americans and particularly hispanics. >> all right. so maybe we'll see you later this afternoon at the briefing. thank you very much, dr. adams, for your time this morning. >> thank you gayle. >> anthony? federal officers in portland, oregon, fired tear gas and smoke bombs in new clashes with protesters. the recent days, agents have taken several people away in unmarked vehicles allegedly without legal cause. president trump is vowing to send federal agents to more cities just over 14700 days befe the election. carter evans has more from portland. >> reporter: as the crowd rushed toward the courthouse here in portland, officers responded with tear gas again. president trump says more federal agents could soon be coming to other cities. >> we're looking at chicago, too. we're looking at new york. look what's going on. all run by democrats.
>> reporter: a department of homeland security memo obtained by cbs news shows the agency preparing to deploy officers to a number of cities which could include kansas city and albuquerque. but first up is chicago, where they'll send 175 agents. >> and i'll be darned if i'm going to let anybody, even if their name is mr. president, bring those kind of troops to our city. >> reporter: dhs acting secretary ken cuccinelli is defending the actions of federal officers in portland. >> we're accomplishing our mission, which is to protect the federal facilities and the people in them and using them. >> reporter: sharon myron says she was tear gassed while attending the protest after a shift in the e.r. >> i think the tear gas is doing exactly the opposite of what they would like to accomplish. >> so it didn't deter you? >> it didn't deter me. it made me in fact, want to go back. >> reporter: t . >> our city has been turned into a war zone.
>> reporter: he was asking federal agents whether they were violating their oath to the constitution. their response, he says, broke his hand. >> this community is being intentionally disrupted. and i think we can all see that if we don't get this to stop, it will spread to other cities. >> reporter: you could see some of the graffiti left. only a handful of protesters remain during daylight but they plan to be back tonight ready for another round of tear gas and rubber bullets. >> carter evans, thank you. we're learning more about the future of the district represented by the late congressman john lewis. he served atlanta and surrounding areas for more than 33 years. now georgia democrats
have selected nikema williams to run to replace him in november. meanwhile, the tributes and memories are still pouring in. cbs this morning saturday co-host michelle miller is in atlanta where she spoke to
friends who knew representative john lewis well. >> reporter: a stream of admirers of all races and backgrounds unified here in the shadow of the late john lewis. those who knew him best say it's his humanity and compassion that set him apart. activists xernona clayton was a friend of his wife lilian. >> you sent lilian and john up? >> oh, yeah. married them off. just married them off. i said to john in recent years, john, you know, i don't think you ever said yes. he said, you didn't give me a chance. >> reporter: rosa tyner is john lewis' sister. the youngest of ten children. >> i was very small. when i used
to see him on tv, at first, i wondered why he was getting arrested. from his birth until his death, he was still standing up for what's right. >> congressman lewis is the
reason that i ran for office. >> reporter: counselman khalid kamau represents south fulton. >> when you see a scene like this, what comes to your mind? >> this man had an effect on generations of people, particularly black folks. >> reporter: and, gayle, people want to know when is the congressman's funeral? a memorial service. we're told that information won't be made public until another civil rights icon, the late c.t. vivian, is laid to rest on thursday, simply out of respect to him and his family. >> it's so hard to believe, michelle, that we lost two of the greats just hours apart on the same day. but when you talk about john lewis, they said he was a living example of the power of healing and of love. and he just fought for justice until his body just simply gave out. >> yes. i'm told it was simply a matter of him needing to go home, and

there are new allegations that sexual misconduct continued at fox news channel years after that led to the departure of roger ailes. ed henry is one of those mentioned. he was fired three weeks ago shortly after the new claims against him first surfaced. the lawsuit also accuses current on air personalities including tucker carlson and sean hannity of sexual harassment. the network said those claims are false, pa tntly frivolous and utterly devoid of any merit. first on "cbs this morning," jericka duncan spoke to the two women making allegations including one who said ed henry raped her. what did necessary women tell you? >> reporter: good morning. you know, tony, they said they feel relieved but yet still scared. i spoke to jennifer eckhart and kathy arue who described the workplace where abuse was
routine and expected. a warning to our viewers, some allegations you're about to hear you may find very disturbing. >> after we met and we had our photo taken together, he messaged me wow you are way more beautiful in person. >> reporter: jennifer eckhart said her connection to ed henry began in 2014 when she was a production assistant. >> as a 24-year-old girl, when the chief white house correspondent follows you on twitter, you, you know, you get stars in your eyes. >> reporter: eckhart said those stars quickly faded. in a lawsuit she accuses henry of violently raping her in 2017 while she was restrained in metal hand curves and henry performed sattistic acts on her. would you characterize the relationship you were in with ed henry as mainly abusive
>> absolutely. without question. i felt that he had the power to derail me, to destroy me, to ruin my career. and i just -- i didn't have a voice until now. >> reporter: eckhart alleges henry asked her to be his sex slave and threatened punnicment and retaliation if she didn't comply. an tone for ed henry said the evidence in this case will demonstrate miss eckhart initiated and encouraged a consensual relationship. was there ever a time at fox that you felt safe? >> it's safe to say i was paralyzed by fear when i was working there. i don't know how you can continue to cultivate and foster an environment that rewards sexual predators consistently y. >> reporter: kathy arue a former fox news analyst and co-plaintiff in the lawsuit said
fine to receive pornographic images and gifts. i thought that was normal for a male anchor to do. >> present pornographic images. >> yep. >> reporter: arue claims she was targeted by some of the network's biggest stars. she said tucker carlson featured her on his show less after she refused his sexual advances. and sean hannity unsolicited for $100 on his anchor desk demanding someone take her out on a date for drinks. an attorney represents both men. >> what's troubling about this lawsuit is it's occurring in 2020. it's not occurring in the ailes regime. >> reporter: when former "fox &
friends" host gretchen carlson won her sexual harassment lawsuit against fox news and then ceo roger ailes in 2016, some believe the workplace conditions would improve. not arue. >> some men complained there were so many meetings they had to go and how to speak to women and not to sexually harass. >> reporter: fox news concluded arue's allegations were baseless. responding in part by saying we take all claims of harassment, misconduct and retaliation seriously. the lawsuit also alleges that fox news higher ups were made aware that other women had filed complaints about sexual misconduct regarding ed henry, but the network says there were no claims about sexual misconduct on ed henry as early as 2017 other than the claims that eckhart recently made. now jennifer eckhart tells us she was fired from fox news this

[ applause ] >> valentine's day, good morning. what have you got for us? >> root for the home team. good to see you all. we are here at home. we're working from home. while we're working from home we're taking a look at some stories we think you'll be talking about. including this. tens of thousands of essential workers from coast to coast walked off their jobs demanding racial and economic justice. scenes like this played out
across more than 100 cities yesterday as part of a nationwide strike for black lives. organizers held the event to protest systemic racism. listen to this leader of a local union in san francisco which represents 1500 janitors who walked off the job to demand better treatment. >> we are essential but they are treating us as expendable. all of us are at risk. all of these people could disappear in the next few months if companies don't respect us and our families. >> and tony, what's important to remember here, of course, is essential and farmland workers have been hit harder by covid-19. >> two things stand out the me. one is racial inequality is very often and primarily economic inequality and two you and i were texting last week about how wall street was having record profits, i believe it was morgan stanley, goldman sachs had a quarter that one analyst
described as almost indecent and meanwhile while wall street is doing that and people in these protests not doing so well. there's a disconnect that's causing strife out there and we'll see further protests. vlad, what else have you got for us? there's a california lawmaker making her bid for roadside assistance? >> that's exactly right. we're talking about maxine waters. she recently got involved when a black man was pulled over by police. watch this. >> they stopped a brother. the congresswoman ultimately got a warning for blocking traffic. the driver who was pulled over during the traffic stop was also let go with warning. gayle, there's some food for

it's tuesday, july 21, 2020, welcome back to "cbs this morning." i'm gayle king with anthony dokoupil and tony mason. we could be closer to seeing a vaccine for coronavirus. jill schlesinger has advice for students. and lessons from selma. how john lewis' fight for voting rights continues after his death. from a cbs reporter.
he's got a story to tell. but first, here's toyedday's "e opener at 8." >> president trump is resuming the coronavirus briefings. teachers in florida try to stop school openings among the pandemic. >> the governor is saying schools have to reopen for in-person classes. he's been almost as strong about that as mask mandates. >> if we want to get back to school, to worship, to regular life, folks need to wear face coverings and practice social distancing. what if they made a mask that people actually wanted to wear? think about it. manager fun? fashionable? even sexy? summer's here and the heat is up.
you need a face mask that's barely there. you need the maskini. get the mask the centers for disease control call 100% sexy. >> and they're not just for women. >> they kind of are. >> they are? >> yeah. this morning's "eye opener at 8" is presented by capital one. welcome back. i'm thinking conan has a different idea of what sexy looks like. what exactly was that? >> i was thinking a maskini would be a mask that matches your bikini. but who am i? >> that's what i thought, too. we'll have to ask the surgeon general what he thinks about that one. for the first time since april, the president will take part in a white house coronavirus task force briefing later today. among growing criticism of his response to the pandemic.
in florida, the number of new cases topped 10,000 for the 11th time in 11 days. parents, students, and teachers are entitled to quote a lawful and safe reopening. meanwhile, missouri governor mike parsen is pushing for kids in his state to go back to school even if they get sick. >> these kids have got to get back to school. they're at the lowest risk possible. and if they do get covid-19, and they will, they're not going to the hospitals. they're not going to have to sit in doctors' offices. they're going to go home and they're going to get over it. >> the data shows young people are less likely to die from the virus. but a study says middle and high school kids are just as likely as adults to transmit the virus. >> and they can get their teachers sick. encouraging news in the race to find a vaccine.
a new study from oxford university says its experimental vaccine prompted an immune response in hundreds who received the shot. a key sign of progress. we spoke to the scientists. >> reporter: america's $1 billion bet on the ox fard vaccine just got a lot closer to paying off. professor sara gilbert. what is the most important takeaway? >> it's safe and giving strong immune responses. >> reporter: the strong immune response they had hoped for. the deployment of anti-bodies and crucial killer t-cells. they detect the virus and neutralize it. t-cells are like assassins. they retain a memory of the virus ready to mount a defense the next time the same pathogen tries to invade. what are the biggest challenges left now that phase one and two
are complete or under way. ? >> looking at the vaccine in older people. most vaccines don't give strong immune sponlss as the person ages. >> the trump administration put $1.2 billion on the line for drug producer astrazeneca to produce doses as soon as they're ready to go. the ceo says they're on track. >> our hope is that, we can actually start delivering a vaccine before the end of the year. >> reporter: professor gilbert is a bit more measured. pascal sorio says he's hoping for october, november. >> well, we all have hopes. there are no guarantees. i don't want to put a date on it because it's impossible to tell. we're working as hard as we can as fast as we can. we'll get the result when we get the result.
>> reporter: in fact things are moving much faster than any time in history from identifying a pathogen for getting this close to a vaccine. in october the work began. now, the entire world is watching and waiting. tony? >> so far, so good, charlie. thank you very much. dr. john la pook joins us with the next steps. good morning. to make a vaccine, you have to build it. then you have to distribute it. i would like to cover both parts. the oxford study is promising. what needs to happen next? >> hey, tony. it's promising because it eli t elicited a strong immune response. it should work. now the big question is, will it work? doing trials in places throughout the world where there's a lot of coronavirus to see if it protects people. there will be trials in south
africa, brazil, the united states, the united kingdom. are people who get the vaccine less likely to come down with covid-19 than those that don't. >> are there other promising vaccines? >> there are. there are a small number being tests but there are you hundreds of candidates around the world. there are billions of people around the world. hopefully, we can crowd-source protecting everybody. >> once we have a vaccine we know works, how soon can we manufacture enough doses to get to people? >> they're doing something great with this, which is producing vaccine at risk. in the past, they would say, let's wait to see if it works. if we prove it, then we'll manufacture. now they're saying no. let's assume a small number will work. we'll start to manufacture hundreds of millions of doses, soon, like asap. if it doesn't work, then that's
lost money. if it does work, then bam, you're ahead of the game. >> there's a poll that worried me. only about half of people would take the vaccine if it were shown to work. what do you make of that? >> you know, i called david oshinski who wrote the book polio, an american story. in the '50s, people were terrified by polio. about 15,000 cases of infantile paralysis. people rushed to get that vaccine. more than 1 million kids were part of the trial in 1954. then, people believed in science. now we have this hesitance si. tony fauci was complaining about an anti-science bias. we have to put resources towards communicating to people.
we have much more news ahead. from selma to montgomery, bill plant was a young cbs news reporter sent to alabama in 1965 to cover john lewis and the march. >> what happened that day in selma registered very sharply the conscience of the nation. >> coming up in a special reporter's notebook, plant looks back at the lasting influence of the civil rights legend whom he covered for more than five decades. you're watching cbs this morning. he may be the one getting the test, but we both live with the results.

wherever you are, rise in a moment of silence in remembrance of the conscience of the congress, the honorable john lewis. >> the honorable john lewis, indeed. an emotional moment on capitol hill yesterday as the lawmakers honored the life and legacy of the great john lewis, known as the conscience of congress, as you heard nancy pelosi say. before his more than three decades in congress, lewis served as an atlanta councilmember alongside future mayor, bill campbell. the two became lifelong friends. and only on "cbs this morning," bill campbell joins us from atlanta to talk about the civil rights icon. good morning to you, mr. mayor. i'm sorry it's under these circumstances but i really appreciate you taking the time. >> thank you for having me. >> we were thinking about -- listen, the country has lost a hero, they've lost a leader but you have lost a friend. you called him your nearest and dearest, as a matter of fact. and i know that you got to spend
time with him during these final moments. can you talk to him about your final visits? >> john's diagnosis with stage 4 pancreatic cancer, we both knew it was a death sentence. it disproportionately affects african-americans. my mother died of it. so, i visited john a number of times in the last week before his death. it was striking that the last conversations that we had were about his commitment to voting. he was so concerned that the country vote in november. in fact, his last words to me were, this is the most important election of our lifetime. and we must all go and vote. and i think that speaks about what he considered to be fundamental and important and what he spent his entire life fighting for. >> yeah, but you had a touching moment, i was reading, you two talked, you embraced. you kissed him on his forehead.
>> well -- >> i thought that was so sweet. >> john has been one of the most important figures in history, but also one of the most meaningful people i ever met in my life. these moments where we spent at the very end of his life were so important for me. i wanted to express my appreciation and love for this great man, but also to tell him how much he had meant to me. death was imminent. we both knew that. but we somehow found peace in his transition and knowing what he had meant to america and what he had meant to me and my family. such an extraordinary man who rose from such humble roots. abject poverty in rural alabama and yet he rose to be one of the most pow. erful and beloved figures in 20th century. it's a great story for anyone who doubts what they can achieve and overcome.
they always underappreciate it and i think never really gave john his due because he was such a small, unassuming man. what a powerful impact he had on our lives. >> that's what i feel, too, that he was so -- i wonder if he knew how much people loved and cared about him. i wonder if he wases able to take all of that in. do you think he was? >> gayle, i'm certain that he was. i spent a lot of time with john in different places around the country. everywhere john lewis went, without body guards, without staff, people flocked to him. it was so heart-warming for me because i knew what he had done in his life. and it just -- it was so wonderful to see people touch him and love him and express that to him. it was just -- i think the most remarkable journey of john's life and his life story. i've said often, and it's not
hyperbo hyperbole, gayle, that when i met john lewis as a young lawyer from duke, your son's alma mater, i thought it was a transcendent experience. it was like meeting the greats of american history, thomas jefferson, benjamin franklin, the people that wrote the declaration of independence. here i was meeting someone who had made america bend and live up to those noble words. john lewis, c.t. vivian, another lion we just lost or andy young, dr. king. it was -- it was a remarkable life. and i was privileged to be able to live alongside him. >> you know what struck me, too, about him, i called to check on him last weekend, oprah and i did. michael said, you should talk to him. he would love to talk to you on the phone. we were like, no, no, we can't. we talked to him on the phone last saturday. oprah was saying, you've been such a blessing in my life.
he said, no, oprah, you've been a blessing in mine. we had a moment with that. even in the end, he's thinking about others and trying to uplift others. i just thought that was so extraordinary. >> well, think about this, gayle, john used his last public appearance in life to go and stand in the black lives matter plaza. he had been told that the cancer had ravaged his body. he did not have long to live. and yet he was able to get up and go and stand in that plaza to express to the young people of america how powerful their voices had been and the changes they had made in america, which he had fought for his entire life. and i think when you look at john's life and his life arc and you see that it was always about making america better. he had this incorruptible integrity, like a halo.
it made all of us better who knew him. your phone call and oprah's phone call and speaker pelosi and president obama and vice president biden, saying to john over the phone, it just made his last moment special. >> i heard that. >> yes, it was. >> we keep hearing that he loves -- hillary clinton was saying, we all know he's joyful, he loved the song "happy" by pharrell. you two most have had moments that were unique to just the two of you. do you have an anecdote about that. >> yes, we shared an office for five years. >> then we have to go. >> john lewis only learned to drive in his 70s. the first time he wanted to show me that he could drive, he ran through a stop sign. i said, john, what happened? he said, oh, i didn't even recognize it was there. he was such a wonderful human being to be around. we will miss him a great deal. >> we really will. he made us all so happy. we thank you, mayor bill
as to how a reverse mortgage works. people think that the bank takes your home, but that is not true. that's absolutely 100% wrong. the home is ours. we can sell it if we want to at any time. i like the flexibility of not having a payment, but i can make the payment if i want to. you're responsible for keeping up your property taxes and you're responsible for paying your insurance on the property. for us, it was a security blanket. the value of our house, was to fund our long-term health care. for years, reverse mortgage funding has been helping customers like these use the equity from their homes to finance their lives. they know the importance of having financial security. make an appointment so they can tell you how it works. it's a good thing. access your equity. stay in your home. have peace of mind.
this is a kpix 5 morning update. good morning, i am michelle griego. as cases are up, supervisor david canepa believes that we will make the list, meaning that gyms and worship services will have to shut down again. they have a new mural from city hall. members of the service employees national union had a mural seeing defund the police as they held a black lives matter rally. workers are expected to go back to the picket lines today.
there noticing that they say they have gone a year without contracts. hospital's company say's it has been in negotiations. checking the one ways, we have a crash and westbound 580s over to the shoulder. it is a busy spot. it is getting better as you make the commute into the allatoona pass. we are seeing tracy improving slightly as you work your way westbound. there is one trouble spot near grant line. to a five towards 680 is 25 minutes. most of our freeways are showing green, which is good. highway for and one-to-one are in the clear. and the bay bridge commute is clear. it is a great start to our day, even checking some mist and drizzle because of that strong onshore flow. we're looking at a mix of sun and clouds inland and low 80s
welcome back to "cbs this morning." it's time to bring you some of the stories that are the talk of the table this morning. you know how it goes. we each pick a story we would like to share with each other and all of you. anthony, you're up first. >> and i'm starting -- i'm in the pole position which is appropriate because this is a story about a very expensive car. it is the latest mustang to break a record, a 1965 ford shelby mustang gt350-r sold for $3.85 million at an auction in indianapolis over the weekend. the highest known price ever paid for a mustang. nicknamed the flying mustang,
and image of the car completely airborne is one of racing's most iconic images. it beat the price paid for the original bullet mustang made famous in a film of the same name that sold for $3.7 million back in january. the car that broke the bullet mustang record, was created by carol shelby. ford wanted to soup up the image of the mustang. they went to carol shelby. it was the first competition shelby mustang, the first to be raced and the first to win. and it is the mustang to auto enthusiasts. it fetched the price appropriate to that. >> it is an amazing vehicle. they come out with mustangs every year but sometimes they've already got perfection in the backlog. they're coming back with the ford bronco, by the way. it reminds me, another great karzai heaca car. sometimes you get it right.
i'm talking about a lottery winner in jamaica that went to the dark side to collect his jackpot. he showed up in a darth vader costume to claim his check for 95 million jamaican dollars, that's about $65,000 american dollars. he wanted to keep his identity secret. this is pretty common in jamaica. the woman prior to him wore a "scream" mask and the prior winner wore an imemoji mask. in most state lotteries make you come out and be public and have a press conference and everyone knows be you got rich. >> all of your friends and neighbors show up. >> is that fair? should we allow everyone to be darth vader? >> long last cousins you ain't heard of in ten years are all of a sudden saying, tony, how are you doing? i think it should be optional. if you want your identity known, fine. if you don't, that's okay, too.
that was funny, tony. i think i got something that could top that in the funny department. i think it's so funny that if you're the type of person that pees when you laugh real hard, be advised, you've been warned. you've been warned. here you go. anita's going, okay. one man is sharing how he enforces social distancing on the subway. it's very unique. so, you're sitting on the subway, you want to make sure that you practice social distancing, so somebody -- he does a split right there to block one row of seats. then the guy goes to sit on the other side. that is mma fighter alon ghailani on a train in hong kong. he shared his video on instagram saying, if you don't wear a mask on public transport, keep your
distance from me. i thought it was hilarious. he starred in several hong kong movies. he dropped out of medical school to pursue martial arts and he started martial arts because he was bullied in childhood. now he apparently has some ballet moves. i would love to see him on the dance floor. that's one way to make sure no one sits next to you. >> you could stick your arm out. he looked like a former gymnast to me. a lot of people could get really hurt doing that move, though. >> don't try that at home. >> don't try that at home. >> also, guys, he kept reading his book. he kept reading his book the whole time, too. >> i love that. >> very funny. in today's "eye on money," weighing the cost of college during the pandemic with schools across the country shifting to online learning, many college students are trying to decide whether that experience is worth the high price of tuition. we spoke to a diverse group of
students about the factors they are considering. >> i have four online classes and one hybrid class. >> i'm going to do strictly online classes. >> i'm looking at skipping my fall semester. >> there's going to be a two-week quarantine first. >> even after i sent in my gap year acceptance, i was still deciding whether or not i want to do it. >> it's a tough choice to go to campus. i won't have that freshman experience. it was heartbreaking when you love school and you love learning. >> i realized i'm a lot better learning in person than online. i felt my money would be put to better use if i were to wait for classes to be in person. >> as for me, it was difficult deciding whether or not like i wanted to actually go this year, if i wanted to, like, do it in person versus online. >> for a lot of my friends, they find it really hard that they're paying, like, a very large amount of money for an online education. they feel like that kind of
money could be spent elsewhere. >> i do have some concerns. i've taken online courses before and i think that they're fine. obviously, not ideal. but i really want to graduate in four years. that's a big factor for me. >> the fall semester is going to start whether you're there or not. i expected to go to campus in the fall. i expected to move in. i expected everything to be perfect. and it's just difficult because now you have to adjust to the unexpected. >> joining us to discuss financial options for students is cbs news business analyst jill schlesinger. good morning. this is such a hard choice. i have a rising junior. we're going through this at home. you're paying all this money and your kids may be taking classes online. should you consider the possibility of a gap year in a situation like this? just waiting until everything gets back to normal. >> i know so many families are having these discussions like yours, anthony, but the problem is that when we look at college, we know that, of course, a college education is worth it.
college graduates make more over their lifetimes. but the weird thing is, according to the federal reserve bank, that gap year will cost you, get this, $90,000 over your work life because you're entering the labor force a year later and you've taken that year off. so, from the perspective of money in your pocket, it's probably better to go back to school, of course, with the greatest precautions. >> jill, there are a lot of lawsuits that have been filed. demanding tuition refunds because students have been sent home effectively. is there any chance that these people are going to recoup their money? >> i doubt it. i mean, a lot of universities were very quick to refund money for room and board, obviously, last semester. but i think these lawsuits aren't really going anywhere. but that said, if your family's financial condition has changed because of the virus, you should go back to your university, you
should explain that, you should try to get another financial aid package. and i want to be crystal clear about this. when you get that package, be sure to understand what you are getting as a grant, basically free money, but what's coming in the form of a loan. i think a lot of universities and colleges confuse these terms. try to make sure you understand this. do try to get a discount if your family has been impacted. >> there is something called tuition insurance, jill. is that something people should be considering and does it even cover a pandemic? >> well, it mostly will exclude a pandemic except if you or your child becomes sick from the pandemic. look, tuition insurance is kind of interesting. i didn't know anything about it until researching it in depth. you know, there are certainly reasons why you'd want a refund. maybe your child has a chronic disorder, maybe something's going on in his or her life, the sort of mental or emotional
issue, then it will pay. because of the pandemic or fear of going back to school, that would be excluded. like many insurance policies, there's a list of things that it won't cover. >> one good thing in all of this, jill, is federal student loan interest rates are at all-time lows. can or should students consider refinancing at this point? >> well, remember the federal government, and remember the federal government does about 90% of all student loans, those are the rates we're talking about. 2.75% for undergraduate loans. it's down by about 40% from a year ago. this is for the upcoming academic year only. so, you might have older loans that clearly have higher interest rates. what's the upside of refinancing? a lower rate. the downside of refinancing a federal student loan is you lose all of those options for repayment. income-based repayment, some of
the school forgiveness loans if you're in public service, and you also would lose that freeze of your tuition -- i'm sorry, freeze of your interest rate at zero percent, which is now frozen through september. so, be very careful, run the numbers, but it could be a good idea, especially if those loans are at much higher rates. >> so many tough decisions for students. thank you. a long-time cbs news correspondent bill plante who covered bloody sunday in 1965, looks back at the key role john lewis played in that turning
♪ now to a firsthand account of the legacy of congressman john lewis who fought for freedom, justice and what he liked to call good trouble. i like the sound of that. in 1965, just 25 years old when john lewis helped lead a march from selma to montgomery, alabama, marked a turning point in the civil rights movement. cbs news reporter bill plante was there. he was just 27 years old. five decades later, bill plante returned to the edmund pettus bridge in selma to mark the anniversary of selma. plante has since retired from us at cbs, looks back at his reporter's notebook to remember
john lewis. >> reporter: as a young reporter who grew up in st. louis, i was a cultural outsider to black people and white people in selma, alabama, but when i saw there opened my eyes. i was shocked by the raw hatred that i saw, as the black people there tried to register to vote every day and got beaten back by the local sheriff. and then when the voting rights marchers went one night to a small town nearby -- >> go home. >> reporter: local people joined the state troopers in beating the protesters and reporters. jimmy lee jackson was shot by a trooper and he later died. it was during his funeral that john lewis and others came up with the idea of marching to the state capitol in montgomery from selma. >> we are marching to dramatize to the world our determination to win first-class citizenship. ♪ > reporter: that march exploded
into state sanctioned violence. >> it will be detrimental for you to continue this march. >> reporter: when the troopers charged, lewis was beaten, trampled and gassed. >> i thought i was going to die. i thought i saw death. >> reporter: but what amazed me, despite the anger, the protest remained nonviolent. that was hard for a lot of people to understand. ♪ >> the date we can march by this very same spot without being stopped and without being harassed up to this point. >> reporter: it was a goal for which dr. king and john lewis never wavered, even as john lewis said at the time, it's hard to love the person who's hurting me. what happened that day in selma registered very sharply in the conscience of the nation because they saw it on tv. >> this march in selma to montgomery has been achieved. >> reporter: a couple of weeks later when the protesters were successful in reaching montgomery, dr. king predicted
that segregation was on its deathbed and john lewis continued to reach what he called the beloved community. ♪ because i've got my strength >> reporter: for many years, he brought other members of congress down to what he called the sacred sites of the civil rights movement. >> i think it's important for those not even born, not even a dream, to know what happened and know the price that was paid. the only thing i did, i gave a little blood that day. >> reporter: we know now, of course, everything that has happened since selma hasn't ended racism. it still exists. voting rights are still not always guaranteed. but john lewis continued all his life to make clear that the struggle for equality continues. and even though he was a man of deep faith, he didn't preach religious values. he lived them. he lived them humbly over a lifetime of good example for the
