sanders moment. i think they're optimistic that they will. that that will work out well. and barack obama in your corner on that front is a good thing. i think that the election will essentially come down to the economy. you know, there's a simple donald trump message which is we're losing jobs, we're bleeding overseas, it's not your fault, i'm going to get them back. she needs a counter to that. i think it's essentially an economic message you're going to see as a story in the "journal" indicates today in a speech next week in which she'll say i can work for the middle class, i can get things done, i know how to do this. >> how important is this meeting with president obama today? >> i think it's important. you know, they need to close this out fairly quickly. at least they want to close this out, this being the challenge from bernie sanders fairly quickly. they go into this in pretty good shape. she finished strong, you know. she won california by 13% points, more than most people thought. she ended up as nancy said with almost 1,000 more delegates than bernie sanders. she had more than three million more popular votes. she's in a good position. i think they need to have this end the right way.
they need bernie sanders not to go away. they want him to be out as an advocate for him, at least on behalf of her with his people. >> he's been portrayed in a political article that came out as quite bitter at this point. >> yeah. it may be. i don't know. they don't believe that at the clinton camp that he's bitter. i think they think he has to decide how he wants this end. he could be a rock star in the democratic party going forward. he's very popular. lots of people will want him on their side campaigning, bringing young people out that he's mobilized. he has an opportunity, as well. >> claire mccaskill joined us yesterday and said it is up to bernie sanders to convince young people to support hillary clinton. do you think that that's the case? >> i'm not sure that's true. i know he can help doing that. i think the clinton people think they're doing slightly better than younger people than commonly thought. there's no doubt that he is an energizer. and she needs that energizer because the coalition will have to include a big chunk of young people. they can't have them drifting into basically -- to donald trump's camp for sure, but not
even into apathy. that's got to be a role for bernie sanders here. >> all right. jerry, great to have you at the table. >> appreciate it. thanks. israel is retaliating this morning after a deadly terror attack on israeli civilians. security video captured a very disturbing scene at a tel aviv restaurant when two palestinian gunmen killed four and wounded at least five others. both suspects are under arrest. israel is sending hundreds of extra troops to the west bank. jonathan vigliotti is following the story from london. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. the gunman targeted a popular shopping district across the street from israel's military headquarters. it was a bold and deadly attack in what has been an eight-month wave of violence. the attackers dressed in dark suits had just ordered dessert before beginning a deadly assault, shooting diners at pointblank range. surveillance cameras from inside the packed restaurant show people scrambling as the two gunmen calmly and systematically took down their targets.
at one point, pistol whipping a victim. >> like two times and five seconds later, looking around, i start hearing shooting like seven shooting. like boom, boom, boom. then i leave everything and start running out. [ gunshot ] >> reporter: police were quick to respond, shooting down one of the gunmen. a few blocks away, the second shooter was captured. the attackers have been identified as cousins from the west bank. overnight, israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu visited the scene and called the attack a savage crime. >> we're going to take the necessary steps to attack the attackers and to defend those who need to be defended. >> reporter: retaliation was quick. israeli military teams went door to door in the village where the attackers lived questioning family. work permits for more than 200 of the gunman's relatives were revoked. and the crackdown will affect more than just relatives of the
gunman. israel has also suspended 83,000 permits that would have allowed palestinians to visit holy sites and family in israel during the muslim holy month of ramadan. anthony? >> thanks, jonathan. two suicide attacks killed at least 27 people in baghdad this morning. a car packed with explosives blew up in a commercial area. another suicide car bomb targeted an army checkpoint. isis claimed responsibility for both attacks. the bombings came as iraqi forces entered the city limits of fallujah as part of their offensive to retake the area from isis. a government washdog will warn the fda -- watchdog will warn the fda its food recall process is not adequate and sometimes dangerous. the inspector general from health and human services will issue what's called a rare alert. it says the fda's lack of effective recall procedures left some consumers at risk of illness or death. only on "cbs this morning," anna
werner spoke with the investigator working on the audit. she's outside the fda in silver spring, maryland. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. yeah, the inspector general's in-depth look at how recalls were handled won't be finished until next year. investigators felt this was simply too urgent to wait. they are taking the unusual step of issuing an alert saying the fda ook too long to get some food companies to pull contaminated food products off the shelves, leaving some consumer in danger. >> i'm concerned. >> reporter: auditors are revealing 30 food recalls between october, 2012, and may, 2015. in the alert, they laid out two cases where they say consumers remained at risk for illness or death for several weeks after fda knew of potentially hazardous food. george netter is leading the audit. >> i think the time that these recalls took were problematic, absolutely. >> reporter: the alert says in a salmonella outbreak in 2014 linked to nut butter
investigators found it took 165 days from the date the problem product was identified to the date of the firm's voluntary recall. there were 14 illnesses in 11 states. during a listeria outbreak later that year linked to cheese products, auditors determined a series of recalls took 81 days to complete. at least nine people became ill including an infant who died and two pregnant women lost their fetuses. >> if you're fda and you know of, as you say, eight people already ill or have gotten ill over this, how many days would you expect? how many days would america expect them to take to figure out and get this product off the shelf? >> i think that we have traditionally done a very good job. >> reporter: the fda's dr. steven ostroff defends the agency saying thousands of recalls are handled successfully each year. >> for us to be able to do the trace-backs and be able to identify how these come together takes a fair amount of time in some instances. >> reporter: you sound, though
as if you're saying that nothing went wrong in those cases. 81 days and 165 days. >> what i'm saying is that there are situations in which it's very challenging to be able to take the actions that need to be taken as quickly as possible. >> reporter: actions netter believes aren't always happening quickly enough. >> unless you get all the product off the shelf, people industrial at risk. -- people still are at risk. >> reporter: the fda is already making change in response to the inspector general's probe, setting up a high-level internal review group that can push for quicker action on recalls when it's needed. netter told us it's only the third time he's aware of in 27 years when investigators have felt the need to issue an urgent alert. gayle? >> all right, thank you. an arizona wildfire is burning this morning near the site of one of the deadliest fires in recent history, threatening hundreds of homes in the area. the tenderfoot fire in yarnell has burned as many as 700 acres.

and brock is no exception." >> in a letter to the judge obtained by cbs news, turner's mother writes her son is "utterly terrified and traumatized by this. he is suffering and will continue to pay for this for his entire lifetime." cbs news legal expert rickey kleman prosecuted second crimes and prosecuted sexual assault suspects and joins us. welcome back from vacation. i'm glad you're back. i've been wanting to talk about this since the story broke. the judge is getting a lot of heat for his sentence. is this a typical sentence? six months? >> no. it's very light, and i think by anyone's estimation it is light. however, one of the things that i think has not come out in all of the news in the last few days is that the judge, while being vilified, is being solely vilified. >> yes. >> as the person who pronounced the sentence. if you look really at what the judge was looking at, he got a comprehensive report from the department of probation that not
only was a department of probation speaking with the victim but also spoke with the defendant. the department also has grids that they go through to be able to make a calculation as to what should be the appropriate sentence. >> people wanted to know what went into his thought process. >> where do you think he placed the weight to come to this decision? >> the probation department concludes a moderate county jail sentence formal probation and sexual offender treatment, i just read it. so the judge is faced with that. he's faced with 39 letters from the defendant, his family, and other supporters. and he's faced with, and i will say it without fear of contradiction, the most articulate statement i have ever read or heard from a victim of sexual assault in all of my years of either practicing law or covering -- >> that's why people are upset. you hear the victim statement and the statement from the parents. you see the judge make the decision, and you can't understand it. >> right.
you probably can't understand it in an era of social media, social media comes down and decides who is the enemy. >> rickey, if you're looking at the list that you gave me and talk about the statement and how powerful it is, how do you as a judge reach this conclusion? >> the judge reached the conclusion whether we like it or not, and i do think that it's shocking. i think criminal defense lawyers around the country have said that it is shocking. >> the victim's letter, she said, "if a first-time offender from an underprivileged background was accused of three felonies and displayed no accountability for his actions other than drinking, what would his sentence be?" so was privilege a factor here? >> there is no question. privilege, wealth gets great lawyers, and the poor, average joe who would wind up in a totally different circumstance. >> thank you very much for being with us this morning. a detroit man is waking up at home this morning instead of the prison where he spent nearly a decade for a crime he didn't

confession, anyone who watches the videotaped confession, it's read to him by the officer. >> started shooting, started shooting him. that correct? >> yes. >> reporter: only two weeks after sanford was sentenced to up to 90 years behind bars, another man, vincent smothers, confessed to the quadruple murder. sanford remained in prison. it was only after a reinvestigation by state police that a judge ordered his release. >> sunny day today, isn't it? >> i want to move on with my life and move forward with my family. take one day at a time. one step at a time and go from there. >> reporter: for "cbs this morning," michelle miller, detroit. >> how does he remain in prison after someone else confesses? >> i know. without a lawyer -- >> 14 years without a lawyer. >> outrageous. >> the problem with the system. americans looking for potentially lifesaving insight was genetic tests instead got nothing. ahead, cbs news investigates a

his samples would be tested, and a doctor would be in touch. that obviously never happened. >> farfetched to imagine that someone is actually not only doing this, but actually getting away with it because they haven't been caught yet. >> reporter: mathews' insurance was not billed for that test we found in the trash. we reached out to the doctor whose name was on the order. he told us he wasn't aware his provider information had been used to order the tests. >> is the first clinic you went to -- is it still snowplow. >> reporter: -- still open? >> reporter: it's shuttered, and there are more investigations. >> what a moment to find lloyd mathews' information in the trash can right there. wow. >> great investigation. >> i'll say. singer ed sheeran -- ♪ >> hear him? he's accused of stealing notes to make a popular hit. we'll compare the two songs at

>> it's embarrassing. >> when they said diana ross, "i'm coming up," you wrote that, too? is there such a thing as a nile rodgers sound or hook? it's madonna, it's keith urban, it's the current people, too. >> yeah. >> lady gaga. >> when i'm lucky, the nile rodgers sound is a hit. >> you write all the time every day. >> every day -- most days. sometimes i'm flying and i can't write. >> do you have a process? >> it change. varies because there's no specific -- here's a good example, i just got called to work on the movie "trolls." they had a specific scene that they wanted me to do. that was easy because it's laid out. you know what you have to do. it's just because you become more of a tech no-crat than an artist. i artistically did it. it was great. if it's something that comes from nothing, that's a different process altogether. usually you're inspired by real life. >> you've had pretty unusual collaborations in your career.
one of which i think took people by surprise, the david bowie collaboration. you said that literally changed your life. why? >> because i had no record deal, david had no record deal. believe it or not, he paid for that record himself. and we did it in 17 days start to finish. >> "let's dance"? >> yeah. never touched it again. and that's "lens dance," "china doll," "modern love," "cat people." we sold more than 11 million out of the box. >> you knew at 5 that music was what you wanted to do. what happened to you? >> when i turned 5 years old, my grandmother gave me a pair of blue suede shoes, and the record by elvis presley, "blue suede shoes." she said, put on the shoes, and go dance for the company. >> in high school you played with the "sesame street" band. >> right after high school. i joined "sesame street." >> don't hear you talk about that much. >> no. well, it was a great time.
luther vandross was one year before me. he got "sesame street" first and left to go to the apollo theater. i got "sesame street," then i left to go to the apollo theater. the rest is history. >> it's fun to watch when you play your guitar. even in the green room. when i see you on stage, your whole face transforms. what is that feeling that you're thinking about? you are so in the moment. as most musicians are. it seems to really totally take over your body to me. that feeling? >> my guitar -- i bought that guitar in 1973. i was on tour with the jackson five. we were their opening act. my partner made me buy that guitar. i was so reluctant because i was mr. jazz guy, too cool. he said, look, i'll tell you, it's going to improve your sound immensely. i was like, man, i don't want to play that music. and i bought the famous one there. a couple weeks later i wrote
"everybody dance." that was the beginning of chic. >> the role. we had a report on before you about the ed sheeran lawsuit. and there have been a lot of lawsuits, obviously. led zeppelin's involved in one. what do you make of what's going on in the music business now? and do you think there's a copying problem? >> there's always been a copying problem. but anthony, just -- i have to be completely honest. there's simply no other way to compose. we're all inspired by other people. i've always told people the greatest motivation when it comes to music is jealousy. you hear somebody else's song, and you go -- that's great. if it just went like this. that would be cool. man, that's a great idea. >> i've heard so many songwriters say what inspires them is they hear a record by somebody else and go, let's do something like that. >> does it sound the same to you, the pieces? >> no, no. >> it doesn't? >> no. see, that's the cleverness of
being a composer is that what you do is you're inspired by somebody, and then you make it your own, right? you may hear a little lick, but you don't copy them. that's -- no. it's not copying. >> even when you look at the notes? they showed the notes and how they're identical. you can't say -- >> the notes -- melody and notes -- i can take a composition that's close, and i can tribe it and the notes and make the notes look pretty close. i mean, say for instance you wrote it in another key. i transpose it to a different key. i can make it -- >> it's not legit to you? not legit? >> it's hard to prove because the fact is i am telling you now, to the audience, i hear other people's music -- as a matter of fact, this -- >> we've got to run. i apologize. i want to get this mention in, you're going to be performing live at your second annual fold festival --
>> freak out let's dance. >> alongside like kesha, dnce, earth, wind, and fire -- >> and bette midler. >> we'll have a talk at 9:00 a.m. join the conversation at facebook.com/cbsthismorning. congratulations. >> thanks. >> let's dance. and we have more from don dahler in a cab anyone -- cabin in the woods. >> reporter: when you get here, you'll be asked to lock away your cell phone. how one company is trying to revolutionize your summer vacation.

with the official start of summer less than two weeks away, many americans are thinking about vacations. more than one in four americans in 2014 didn't have pay time. 80% of millennials would rather take multiple short vacation than one long one. don dahler is in the new hampshire woods where a company started by harvard grad students is trying to revolutionize the way we disconnect. good morning. >> reporter: hey, good morning. come on in. the founders of getaway decided to use tiny houses like the one i'm in now because they wanted
people to get outdoors more. they also didn't want their guests to do too much advanced planning of activity, so they keep the location secret until the last possible moment. ryan and meg are setting out on an adventure five months in the making. in january, the couple booked a one-night stay somewhere in the woods. just 24 hours before leaving, they found out where. it's a two-hour drive from ryan's apartment outside boston. a world away from their normal lives. >> it was relaxing just to be together and have nothing else really going on. just kind of back to your roots. >> reporter: meg and ryan's getaway comes courtesy of a company called getaway. the startup aimed at millennials is part vacation, part social experiment. they built three tiny houses that are, well, tiny and placed
them in undisclosed locations in the new england wilderness. >> it was like staying in a cabin you that would anywhere in new hampshire or maine, but on a much smaller scale. >> reporter: each house is made of wood, powered mostly by solar energy, and comes furnished with lofted beds, hanging chair, kitchen supplies, a stove, towels and bedding, a simple shower and toilet, and board games to play. all the creature comforts of home jammed into 160 square feet. did it feel cramped to you? >> no. >> no, not really. >> it's actually comparable if you think about it to a studio space or size in any city, boston, new york, whatever. >> reporter: room service -- not a chance. and out here, expect minimal cell service and no wi-fi. >> it was kind of really nice to not know what time it was. we ended up spending the night here. we made s'mores. weated dinner. >> reporter: -- we ate dinner. >> reporter: you were able to virtually disconnect successfully for one night?
>> yeah. >> reporter: what do you think for a week? >> i think it would get easier as the days went on. >> reporter: that's what founders pete davis and john staff intended. >> i like being connected, i'm always always connected to it unless i actively disconnect. >> reporter: guests are encouraged to lock away their smartphones and trade surfing social media for soaking in the surroundings. >> when you get here, you do nothing. you just are in a beautiful, tiny house, you're in the woods, and you're with the people you love and your own thought. >> reporter: americans today are taking less vacation time than ever. in 2013, 169 million vacation days went unused. the equivalent of over $52 billion in lost benefits. >> it's crazy. there's a lost week for americans where you could be etting away and you're not. and i'm pretty sure it's not because you love your job and want to stay there. it's because vacations are too hard and expensive. >> reporter: that's why accessibility and price are important to staff and davis. houses are an easily drivable
distance and start at $99 a night. >> this is cool. >> reporter: for meg and ryan, it's an alternative to a more traditional vacation, not a replacement. you don't think the resort chains have anything to worry about yet? >> no. >> i don't think so. i not those will always be filled -- i think those will always be filled with some. i see this as becoming a more prominent scene for those trying to get away from the city definitely. >> reporter: getaway is expanding. they're going to open three around new york city and hope to have 15 by the end of summer. they're looking at taking the concept national. anthony? >> don, thanks. i've got a few of those lost weeks, by the way. you're watching "cbs this morning." we'll be right back.
