tv   CBS This Morning  CBS  November 6, 2013 7:00am-9:00am EST

7:00 am
good morning. it is wednesday, november 6, 2013. welcome to "cbs this morning." voters in both parties send a message. political director john dickerson shows us what last night's high-profile election means for washington. a murder conviction tossed out only on "cbs this morning." "48 hours" erin moriarty talks with the man sent away with no evidence and lying witnesses. plus how long can toronto's play mayor survive after he finally admits to smoking crack? >> but we begin this morning with today's "eye opener," your world in 90 seconds.
7:01 am
>> maybe the folks in washington, d.c., should tune in their tvs right now, see how it's done. >> governor chris christie sends a message to washington. >> easily winning the election. >> that wasn't an acceptance speech. that was an announcement speech. >> he may begin his run for the white house even though he won't say he's actually doing it. >> democrat terry mcauliffe squeaked out a win in the governor's race. >> have you tried it? >> probably in one of my drunken stupors. >> mr. ford's approval ratings have gone up despite growing calls for him to step up. >> you know what that makes you? enablers eh? >> healthcare.gov getting another airing today as secretary cath leap sebelius testifies before the committee. >> the "sun sentinel" reporting that coaches instructed
7:02 am
incognito to toughen up martin. >> we're going to try to weather the storm and that's it. >> bill de blasio wakes up as the first democratic. >> asia into europe. >> all that -- >> 8.4 million impacted. >> my dress is like gathering here. can you hello me smooth it? >> what really do you want from me? >> and all that matters. >> white house tours resume. visitors were welcomed by none other than the president. >> -- on "cbs this morning." >> the mayor of toronto has admitted he smoked crack. >> i know. i embarrassed everything. >> gave himself -- >> the past. the past.
7:03 am
we must move forward. >> that's the kind of straight blunt honesty crack smokers are known for. >> announcer: this morning's "eye opener" is presented by toyota. let's go places. captioning funded by cbs welcome to "cbs this morning" and welcome back and good morning. >> hey, good morning. it's good to be back. >> we begin with this a move to the middle. the results of two high-profile elections have national implications. governor chris christie won a commanding victory. >> meanwhile virginia's next governor is a long-time confidante of bill and hillary clinton. terry mcauliffe defeated ken cuccinelli. chip reid is in washington. chip, good morn zbhoogding. >> good morning, charlie and norah. it was a split decision one going to the democrats and one
7:04 am
to the republicans. but both have something in common, an emphasis on compromise and reaching across the aisle. governor chris christie responded. >> i know that if we can do this in trenton, new jersey maybe the folks in washington, d.c., should tune in their tvs right now and see how it's done. >> christie has made no secret of the fact that he's contemplating a run for the white house in 2016 and he wanted a big re-election victory in part to show that republicans who favor consensus over image logical purity can win, even in blue states like new jersey. >> the biggest thing i've learned over the last four years about leadership is leadership is much less about talking than it is about listening. >> christie has a mostly conservative record but he got 32% of the democratic vote compared to just 5% for republican presidential candidate mitt romney last year in new jersey.
7:05 am
he also won nearly 60% of women and one in five african-americans. that theme of bipartisanship was echoed in virginia by democrat terry mcauliffe who squeaked out a victory for governor. >> just think about what virginia has been able to accomplish when we work together. >> mcauliffe defined his opponent attorney ken cuccinelli, a favorite of the tea party as rigid. >> ken cuccinelli is way too extreme. >> for weeks the pollsters and pundits predicteded mcauliffe would win easily but in the final days of the campaign cuccinelli tried to turn the race into a referendum for obama care. >> although tonight i lost you sent a message to president obama that the health care is a
7:06 am
failure. >> the disastrous rollout of obama care has helped narrow the gap but not enough to win. >> thank you. political correspondent john dickerson is with us. good morning. >> good morning. >> he's running on the theme "i can do it." >> yes. when when booth close, another opens. he basically said if we can get it done here in new jersey with a republican governor in a democratic state, washington should look at that and that should be a model. and what was also interesting is for a republican sending that message to his party. there's a lot of talk how government can do things. now, in the specific case of new jersey he's tau talking about the response to hurricane sandy but he's also talking about how you can work together to do the job and get the job done. if there was something cominging oust that speech, his message for washington and the candidacy is get the job done, whatever the headlines maybe.
7:07 am
>> the headlines say the voters chose the middle road. when they asked chris christie this he's a moderate or a conservative he said, no no i'm a conservative. is that someone who they're going to choose as nominee? >> he was kind of considered a moderate to get elected in new jersey. now he wanted to adjust that. he wants to cut taxes and he's against gay marriage. the fact that he's got problems that he tood took medicaid money, his position on guns. there's a lot of things conservatives cannot like about him. >> let's look at virginia. is it possible the republicans this morning are saying if we had worked hard done more made health care a bigger issue, we would have won this thing? >> that's right. those who are conservative in the tea parties can look at virginia and say, look ken
7:08 am
cuccinelli was not a great candidate. the establishment didn't put in money into virginia. if they had and if they really pushed in this state, we might have won. that's absolutely the message people can take out of virginia and they probably will so that this internal debate in the republican party whether you run as a christie kind of i can get it done or stand on principle and the voters will come to you, that debate still rages after these two with enough evidence on both sides for everybody to continue their argument that and given that terry mcauliffe the new governor of virginia is one of bill and hillary clinton's best friends, does it mean anything for hillary since it's a battleground state? >> it actually doesn't help you when you run for president in that state. there could be other -- there's a lot of baggage and history with those two, so that to the extent that it helps to have your pal in a very very important state, that's true but there's also a lot of complexity to that relationship which she'll have to deal with
7:09 am
every time she goes to the state so it's probably a big stake. >> all right john. i love talking politics. >> i do too. it's a good day when john dickerson shows up. voters elected their first democratic mayor in 20 years. bill de blasio won 73% of the vote after running a very liberal campaign. in a victory speech he promised to focus on the needs of the working class. >> new york's resilience is legendary. our toughness is unmatched. and our will is unbreakable. for generations new york has meant opportunity. that's what it has been to so many and that's what it must be again. >> de blasio will take over for mayor michael bloomberg on new year's day. the billionaire independent is wrapping up 12 years here in new york city. the future of another mayor is in question.
7:10 am
after a bunch of denials the mayor admitted tuesday that he smoked crack co-kind while in august. two newspapers are calling for rob ford to step down but he remains define. terrell brown is at city hall. terrell, good morning. >> reporter: charlie good morning. this is where they have met. they've been camped out for days. all they got was another promise that he would stay in office and one surprising accusation -- or admission rather. >> yes, i have smoked crack cocaine. do i? am i an addict? no. >> reporter: rob ford admitted to having smoked crack cocaine. >> probably in my drunken stupor about a year ago. >> reporter: it was back in may
7:11 am
the allegation first surfaced after the online blogger "gawker" reported it. he repeatedly shot down the accusations. >> i do not use crack cocaine, nor and i an addict. >> reporter: but last week it escalated. >> get off my property. >> reporter: hours after tuesday's impromptu newspapers ford faced the camera again. >> i feel like a thousand pounds have been lifted off my shoulders. >> reporter: this time to apologize. >> to the residents of toronto, i know i have let you down. and i can't do anything else but apologize. >> reporter: "toronto star" reporter kevin donovan said he wasn't surprised by the mayor's reaction. >> mayor ford made it very clear, this is a football game
7:12 am
to him, he's going to the very last second on the clock. >> reporter: despite unrelenting questions tuesday, ford said he would have admitted his drug use if they asked him about it correctly. >> i wasn't lying. you didn't ask the correct kwegss. >> reporter: despite intense pressure, ford refused to resign, instead wrapping up his speech with a bid for re-election. >> i want the great people of this city to decide whether they want rob ford to be their mayor. >> reporter: and ford immediately left that press conference and dodged question ss, some of those lingering questions about secret meetings with an accused drug dealer. charlie and norah? >> terrell, thank you. this morning health and human services secretary kathleen sebelius testifies for the second time since the troubled rollout of healthcare.gov. nan sis cordes is on capitol hill. nancy, good morning. >> good morning, norah.
7:13 am
that's right. she ee going to be testifying before the senate committee. she's going to highlight all the improvements. yesterday the head of the centers for medicare and medicaid which oversaw the rollout testified that it's now easier to create an account and easier to browse plans without creating an account. still, she faced tough criticism, not just from republicans as you would expect but also from democrats who worried that all the problems with the website have scared away the young people that they need to sign up in order to make the program work. >> i believe that there's been a crisis of confidence created in the dysfunctional nature of the website, the canceling of policies, and sticker shock from some people. do you have a plan to get the young people back? >> yes we do and we will roll out that plan. our goal is to stabilize the website this month and then we do have a targeted plan that
7:14 am
includes not only young people but the large populations of the uninsured in markets. so, yes, there is a plan. >> tavenner said the administration is going to be released enrollment figures sometime next week but that was not good enough for the house, ways, and means committee. they want those numbers by the end of this week. >> nancy, thank you. for the first time since his suspension, dolphins player richie incognito is breaking his silence about being at the center of a bully scandal. the "sun sentinel" says the coach was asked edasked and asked incognito to toughen up martin. >> reporter: ever since he was suspended, he has said nothing about any of this until a miami
7:15 am
television station caught up with him last richie said nothing. >> i'm just trying to weather the storm right now. this will pass. >> reporter: but his future of the team is in doubt. as the nfl begins its investigation, the players' association leased a statement saying we expect that the nfl and its clubs create a safe workplace for all its players. they wonder how the dolphins fans coach never saw it coming. it now seems apparent martin never told his coaches or nfl that he get threatened by inn incognito there he threatened him. when they saw his profane racist messages, he was suspended. >> i think it's the level he
7:16 am
took it to. >> reporter: david co-lou ski played football with incognito at the university of nebraska. he said he bullied college teammates and one of them walked off the field. >> richie would take it to the next level. the name calling and physical tauntings, things of that nature were pretty commonplace. >> reporter: hazings, especially of young players, is part of the nfl f lfl culture. >> was richie incognito wrong? absolutely but i think they're just as guilty because they allowed it to happen. you're a grown man. you should stand up for yourself. there's no punking at the nfl level. hazing is one thing. bullying is another.
7:17 am
>> reporter: that could cost inn cog nieto 1 million$1 million. cbs contributor dr. david agus is with us. tell us what this says and why it is so scary. >> this study looked at people with low testosterone and what it showed in a nonrandomized fashion looking at their computer data, it showed a dramatic risk. 30% higher. heart disease, stroke and death. >> 34%. >> 34%. we have no long-term data. it really is an alarm. >> and the tift was on men over 60. >> so these were men over 60 with existing heart disease, so what it means for a younger person, we don't know yet but we certainly now have to take a pause and say, listen we need
7:18 am
long-term data. >> so if you're over the age of 60 and you're on testosterone therapy and you see this study today, what should you do? >> talk to your doctor. look at your risk for heart disease. >> you can watch sports on any saturday or sunday. i feel like there's a low t. commercial every block. >> over $2 billion spent. not a lot of long-term data. we need to take an alarm here and say, listen where's the data. >> dr. agus, thank you. security in china is on high alert. small homemade bombs went off. eight other people were hurt. one witness saw nails and steel ball bearingings scattered. it follows last week's bombing around tiananmen square. the faa is unveiling a new
7:19 am
rule for commercial pilots. the rule grew out of the colgan air crash in buffalo in 2009. the "connecticut post" looks for a bail hearing for kennedy cousin michael skakel. skakel is behind bars for the killing of neighbor martha moxley. they look at charlie trotter. diners traveled around the good morning. it is 45 degrees, pretty good amount of sun mixing with clouds. i think it's going to be primarily a gray day. it's going to be mild. temperatures are going to a high of about 63 degrees. yesterday we got to 57. do the math definitely warmer.
7:20 am
over night tonight 55 partly cloudy. >> announcer: this national weather report sponsored by coals. coal kohl's. expect great things. it is the end of a family's nightmare, and "48 hours" is there. >> oh my god. >> hey, ryan. hi. >> how are you doing? >> good seeing you. >> we've talked to the man who's been a decade behind bars with a
7:21 am
murder case with no evidence and lying witnesses. arab moriarty on her eight years of original reporting. >> the drug company that manufactures the brand name lipitor will pay half a billion-dollars in fines and settlements. our john miller sits down with the whistle blower. >> expectation is that the drug is supposed to work as intended. that trust was broken. >> the news is back here on "cbs this morning." stay here for your local news.

7:32 am
this is a vsh significant spot. in 2005 i was here in this courthouse when ryan ferguson was convicted of murder and now i'm back as the appellate court throws out that conviction. >> waiting. >> it should come up at any moment it's agonizing. >> every tuesday morning ryan ferguson's parents search the court's website for a decision that could change their son's feature. >> it's there. convictions are vacated. >> reporter: the kortz has overturned their son's murder conviction. >> oh my god. >> reporter: hey, ryan. hi good seeing you. >> reporter: we've covered his case since his original trial in 2005. from the very beginning there was something so troubling about it. >> the defendant pulled off the

victim's own belt and used it to strangle him to death. ferguson was convicted of killing ken heithold a popular newspaper sports editor in the early morning following halloween, 2001. there has never been any physical evidence connecting ryan ferguson of the murder. he was convicted primarily on the words of erickson although he seemed to know little about the crime when police interviewed him. >> you know for a fact. >> the other key witness was jerry trump, a janitor who claimed he saw ryan at the crime scene. >> would you point to that individual, please? >> yes. >> reporter: after a "48 hours" report raised questions about ryan's conviction. kathleen zeller a powerful attorney, took the case pro bono. she joined forces with ryan's

7:36 am
committed the crimes? >> well, there has always been one person the last person to see the victim. the last person to be known to have seen the victim before he was killed and even the appellate court's decision focuses on this one. maybe at some point this case will be resolved but it's already been since 2001. >> and, erin just on a personal note how does it feel. in many ways had you not been on the story still reporting it he might still be in jail. how does it feel? >> when we first started, we didn't have any idea whether ryan ferguson was innocent or guilty. and then seeing all this new evidence. i mean it feels great, but he still has a long road to go. the state could appeal this decision. the state could retry him.

80% of drugs prescribed to americans are generic drugs. 40% are now made overseas in countries like china and india where u.s. oversight is weak eer. cbs correspondent john miller is looking at one of those companies called rannbaxy.
7:42 am
>> good morning, charlie. he was hired in 2003. he would later become a wasser blower. it's a company that sold generic drugs like lipitor. his whistle blowing caused them to come forward and pay $500 million in settlement. >> the expectation is the drug is supposed to work as intended. we wla we what we saw in this case is that was broken. >> when he looked at it they were found. >> thakur found the drugs were being made for americans with
7:43 am
bioee kwif lens data that either didn't exist or was made up awl altogether altogether. >> the key question is does it work. >> but the confidence would largely have to be based on the quality of the data. >> oh, absolutely. >> and without the data. >> you don't know. you don't know. >> thakur reported his findings to the fda in 2005. their investigation found ranbakyranbak y ranbaky had a consistent factor. there were over 1,600 data factors. they were found to be unsafe to use and sell. >>. >> vince fabiano is a former ranbaxy president. >> let's say you're using a
7:44 am
cancer drug. your cancer progresses. is it because of the drug or the disease process? >> no one knows. in many cases it would not be detected. >> in 2008 when ranbaxy came under new ownership. they were band from selling but they continued to sell in the u.s. from other indian facilities. then in 200111 while one arm was investigating ranbaxy for serious criminal violations another was approving the company for the exclusive rights to make the generic version of one of the most popular pharmaceuticals of all time. lipitor, a decision by the fda that reportedly earned the company $600 million in the first six months. david nelson led a congressional investigation into ranbaxy. >> there was behavior treatment
7:45 am
that was suggestive of regulators that at best didn't care and at worth were complicit in the activities of this firm. >> rabaxy's new owners say they've spent $300 million to upgrade their facilities. we wanted to look inside ranbaxy's facility. we traveled toinld ya. active pharmaceutical grernlts are made here. the key ingredient that makes the drug work. despite the manicured grounds and the catchy safety slow against, that facility has run into serious problems with the fda. in 2012 ranbaxy issued a recall after finding glass part calls in raw ingredients. afterward they found faulty cleaning records and a failure to investigate problems. ranbaxy declined an interview
7:46 am
with us but in a statement they said they're committed to providing high quality drugs in the u.s. >> it's a long and lonely process. >> as for dinesh thakur, his findings led the company to plead guilty for exposing the company. he was awarded $49 million in a u.s. court. >> somewhere in some company there could well be someone who is seeing the same things that you saw. >> what would you say to them? what should they do? >> they should follow their cob conscience and do what i they feel they need to do. >> ranbaxy sold nearly a billion dollars worth of drugs to americans last year but just two weeks after we visited their indian facilities, the fda blocked a third ranbaxy plant in india from selling drugs in the
7:47 am
u.s. >> so, john can ranbaxy sell drugs to u.s. customers? >> norah, following the recent fda action the company's finished drugs are all made in the u.s. but the company still makes the key ingredientses for the ugs drugs like astrazeneca in india. they're one of two suppliers. nexium, of course was the highest selling drug in the u.s. last year. >> thank you, john. john will have more of his investigation tonight on the good morning. it's sunny right now but that's not going to be the rule of the day. a high of 63 degrees. a generally cloudy day but milder than yesterday. morning clouds and
