7:00 am
these sunrises we've been seeing lately. gorgeous. >> so nice and beautiful over the water. thanks for watching kpix5 and news continues all day good morning to your our view ersz in the west. welcome to "cbs this morning." it's monday, march 1st, 2021. that's good. i'm gayle king. that's anthony mason. that's tony dokoupil. a third covid vaccine requiring just one shot instead of two is shipping out to vaccine sites tday. we'll show you its journey and speak with the head of johnson & johnson. the pressure piles on for new york governor andrew cuomo now facing new harassment allegations. why critics say his latest songs -- response is not enough. former president trump delivers his first address since leaving office, calling for republican unity while also attacking republicans who crossed him. the latest reaction to his speech. plus, the first virtual
7:01 am
golden globes. a night of many stars at home. all the big winners including an emotional speech by the widow of chadwick boseman. >> it was quite a moment. first, today's "eye opener," your world in 90 seconds. >> the data was quite strong with the j&j vaccine. i think people should be confident about taking it. >> reporter: the fda has given the green light to the johnson & johnson vaccine. >> reporter: the vaccine only requires one dose. >> is johnson & johnson an inferior vaccine, particularly for older americans? >> you can't say that. we now have clearly three highly efficacious vaccines. former president trump signaling a possible run for the white house in 2024. >> i may even decide to beat them for a third time, okay. >> reporter: new york governor andrew cuomo says he would cooperate with a sexual harassment investigation led by the state's attorney general. >> there should be an independent review looking into
7:02 am
these allegations. >> reporter: at least 18 people were killed in myanmar after security forces opened fire on pro-democracy protesters. all that -- >> reporter: golfers across the professional golf course wore red and black during the final rounds of their respective tournaments to pay tribute to tiger woods. and all that matters -- >> there are no black members of the hollywood foreign press. >> the organization that picks golden globe winners hasn't had a single black member in nearly 20 years. >> maybe you guys didn't get the memo because your workplace is the back booth of a french mcdonald's, but you got to change that. on "cbs this morning." >> the late chadwick boseman posthumously won best actor in a drama film. his wife accepted the award. >> he would thank god. he would thank his parents. he would say something beautiful, something inspiring. and i don't have his words. but we have to take all the moments to celebrate those we
7:03 am
love, and hon, you keep 'em coming. this morning's "eye opener" presented by progressive. making it easy to bundle insurance. >> if you were watching last night, your heart just went out to mrs. boseman. she looked and sounded so loving. she looked gorgeous. she was so loving. her words were so powerful. >> it's only six months after his death. >> i know. you could still see the pain is still palpable. i was glad to see her last night. a very touching moment. we welcome you to "cbs this morning." we're going to start with this -- a breakthrough in the fight against the coronavirus. you are looking right now, right now, there it is, not looking at me, looking at this, pictures from inside a shipping facility in kentucky. this is where the newly approved third vaccine, the vaccine number three by johnson & johnson, is being sent out later today. now this vaccine could dramatically speed up efforts to bring our everyday lives back to normal. >> that is good news. medical trials found the new johnson & johnson vaccine is 85% effective against severe illness.
7:04 am
it's also the first single-dose vaccine approved for use in the united states. it's also easier to distribute because it does not need to be stored in extreme cold temperatures. errol barnett is louisville, kentucky alongside a plane that will be delivering vaccines. good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning, trust me, i am smiling under this mask because this is a significant day in the fight against this pandemic. right now, roughly 20 miles south from where i'm standing the johnson & johnson vaccine is being packaged and in the next few hours those 4 million doses will be marched up i-65 before being loaded onto cargo planes like the ones you see on the tarmac behind me. in fact ups has special labels, affixed with bluetooth technology to track every package to the inch. ups telling cbs news they predict it will take roughly 20
7:05 am
hours to take possession of the packages, hand them over to states before they arrive at their final destination. tuesday morning arrival at the earliest. but we know 4 million doses is not enough. the manufacturer wants to pump out 20 million doses by the end of march and 100 million by the end of june. in fact, on 60 minutes bill whitaker pressed johnson & johnson's executive vice president in charge of manufacturing about ramping up production. >> we have controls, we have procedures, we have testing, all of that is very complicated, very complex. we're not manufacturing simple items here. we're manufacturing complex biologics, and the concerted effort, the choreography, if you will, and the time it takes to ramp that up, it simply takes time. >> reporter: also on sunday president biden's chief medical adviser, dr. anthony fauci, effectively said don't be too concerned about the lower efficacy of this vaccine. he said there are now three
7:06 am
viable vaccines available. he encourages people to get whichever one is available where you are if you want a fighting chance against this deadly pandemic. >> the johnson & johnson vaccine, zero hospitalizations and zero deaths at trial. in our next half hour, we will talk with johnson & johnson's ceo about the company's plan to get 100 million doses by june. vaccine distribution is ramping up. there is a new worrying drop in covid testing across the country. right now the u.s. average is 1.4 million tests a day, that's down from a high of 1.9 million in mid-january. less testing could slow down our ability to track outbreaks of the virus. our lead national correspondent, david begnaud is in los angeles. what's driving this decline in testing? >> reporter: well, anthony, the main reason is they're turning testing sites into vaccine sites. it makes sense, right? when you look at the data for los angeles county where we are
7:07 am
this morning it appears that testing has dropped 34% within the last month and that's pretty significant, especially for people who rely on free testing, say on a monthly basis. one woman came here to the va hospital's parking lot in west los angeles, she'd been coming here on a monthly basis and says she showed up expecting there to be testing and this is what it looked like, it was gone. >> it's my responsibility to make sure i got regular testing. >> how regularly were you going? >> she tested positive in december, and wanted a follow-up test to reassure her clients she was virus free. when she went to her usual testing site -- >> it was gone. >> her testing site at the va hospital parking lot in los angeles was closed entirely, and the city is now turning other testing sites like dodgers stadium into vaccine sites and it's happening in cities across california. >> we were averaging 330,000
7:08 am
tests a day towards the end of december, early january. and now we're below 200,000 tests a day. >> that is dr. mark galey, he says with variant strains of covid spreading across california mass testing is as important today as it's ever been. >> we can't ramp down testing too much, otherwise, if we did see another surge we're never going to be able to track it and we are not out of the woods yet, the only way you track a variant is by starting with a positive test, it's key over the next weeks and months. >> reporter: the upcoming vaccines could be part of the solution, there are the new shots from johnson & johnson, novavax and astrazeneca that can be stored in normal refrigerators in doctor's offices and that's a game changer says our medical contributor. >> those are done in doctor's offices, and in community
7:09 am
hospitals, we have to start to transition vaccines there so we can go back to testing at the large centers. > reporter: other doctors say, listen, we need to focus more on vaccines than we do on testing, do you agree? >> vaccines are what's going to get us out of this pandemic, period. at the same time we have to figure out an alternative way to do testing. it's critical for your behavior. do i quarantine or stay home, you need testing to determine that. >> reporter: for our main character amanda shuttleworth, got a test, she found a rite aid in south los angeles, showed up, it was a drive-through and tested negative for the first time in three months. if you were a mayor or a governor, you're watching this report, this is for you. don't forget about testing. >> david, thank you very much, we appreciate it. moving on to politics here, new york's democratic governor andrew cuomo faces calls to resign after a second former
7:10 am
aide accused him of sexual harassment. the woman claims he repeatedly asked her questions about her sex life while she worked for him last year. he says he never intended to offend anyone or cause any harm. our national correspondent jericka duncan is following this for us. >> reporter: the governor says he's handing over this investigation to the state attorney general after she denied his original request to choose a private investigator. now the ag is expected to have full investigative authority, and even oversee a law firm that will have the power to subpoena. charlotte bennett laid out allegations of harassment against governor andrew cuomo in the "new york times," events she says took place over several months. in one encounter last june bennett said cuomo asked if she was romantically involved, whether she was monogamous in her relationships and if she had
7:11 am
ever had sex with other men. the 25-year-old former executive assistant added i understood that the governor wanted to sleep with me, and felt horribly uncomfortable and scared. yesterday the governor apologized, writing i now understand that my interactions may have been insensitive or too personal. some of the things i have said have been misinterpreted saz an unwanted flirtation to the extent anyone felt that way i am truly sorry. the chair of the state senate's ethics committee w worked in th governor's's office in 2017. >> he's actually saying he meant for those words to be playful anand there is n no realm of pll when a governor of a state asks a young staffer who is 25 years old if she has sex with older men, or if she has sex outside of her relationship, that is not only inappropriate, it is abusive. >> reporter: the allegations have led to swift calls for an investigation from many prominent democrats, including
7:12 am
president joe biden. >> president biden has been consistent that he believes that every woman should be heard, should be treated with respect and with dignity. >> reporter: the new york attorney general will lead the investigation into bennett's claims and from another former aid lindsay boylan who alleged cuomo kissed her on the mouth. he has denied all of the claims. >> that behavior is the exact behavior that prevents us from having good governance. it impacts policy,, the lack o bebeing able too acknowlwledge either mistakes are made or that certain behavior is harmful to others.. is higighly problematicic of s e who holds the office that is the highest office of the state of new york. >> reporter: state senator biaggi says in the past governors have had a lot of power when it comes to investigations within the state. she says she's hopeful that the attorney general's involvement in this case will lead to more
7:13 am
transparency. anthony? >> thank you. donald trump's first speech as our former president included some of the same false claims that inspired the deadly assault on the capitol and he expressed no remorse. instead he used yesterday's 90-minute address at the conservative political action conference to attack his political enemies, including fellow republicans. as ed o'keefe reports mr. trump also laid out his plans to continue leading the party. >> do you miss me yet? do you miss me? >> reporter: even out of the white house former president trump is shaking up politics. >> we all knew that the biden administration was going to be bad, but none of us even imagined just how bad they would be and how far left they would go. >> reporter: who i will former president obama often spoke out about trump after leaving office trump's desire to stay engaged
7:14 am
is unprecedented. after all, we've never had a one term twice impeached former president leave office with an unusually large political following. while he said he has no intention of splitting up the gop -- >> we have the republican party. >> reporter: he highlighted the rift in the party by taking time to call out by name more than a dozen republican lawmakers who voted to impeach or convict him last month for the riot at the capitol. >> the warmonger, a person that loves seeing our troops fighting, liz cheney. >> reporter: a majority of republicans would support a trump 2024 campaign. if he doesn't run in 2024, more than a dozen other republicans are making preparations, and several spoke at cpac. >> covid didn't crush the economy. government crushed the economy. >> reporter: i hear president biden saying america's back.
7:15 am
back to what? >> reporter: but speakers mostly embraced the trump legacy. >> i hope on january 20th, 2025 he is once again the leader of our great country. >> reporter: the conference also included the former president and many other activists discussing stricter voter i.d. or put in place stricter id rules. hadn't thought about it way you phrased it, a one-term twice impeached president. certainly that. the former president flirted with the idea of a 2024 white house run many times, but he didn't just say he was going to run. why do you think he didn't do that? >> reporter: aides tell me that legally and from a fundraising standpoint he can't do all this other work he wants to do for republicans if he's an officially declared candidate himself. he may want to run again, we'll see.
7:16 am
but first he wants to continue being a kingmaker. besides, we know he enjoys keeping everyone on our toes. for now he's going to keep us in suspense. >> all of the above. the crowd was certainly glad to see him yesterday. thank you so much. the crowd in the room. pro-democracy protesters are back on the streets in myanmar this morning despite a u.n. report that at least 18 people were killed a day earlier by forces loyal to the military government. just hours ago the country's top civilian leader was charged with two new offenses. ramy inocencio reports on the demonstrations. >> reporter: pro-democracy protesters threw molotov cocktails at police in yangon. elsewhere they put out smoking teargas canisters fired by security forces. hundreds of thousands on sunday called for the military junta to free a aung san suu kyi. this was their answer. this man along with several others shot dead in the southeast town, a bullet pierced through this man's back and
7:17 am
stomach. his lifeless body rushed into an ambulance. everyone fighting for aung san suu kyi. the 75-year-old nobel laureate finally appeared in court monday via video conference, charged with two new violations -- inciting public unrest and violating communications laws. her lawyer told cbs news the charges are political. what do the military leaders want? >> to erase her from the political scene of the country. >> reporter: do you have any fear that she might spend the rest of her life in prison? >> she will be a martyr. >> reporter: already memorials and martyrs are starting to rise where pro-democracy protesters fell. more funerals to fire up anger against myanmar's military that so many want buried instead. for "cbs this morning," ramy inocencio, beijing. ahead, how soon you should expect widespread distribution of the johnson & johnson vaccine, and how it could change the timeline for beating this

♪ welcome back to "cbs this morning." a single-shot coronavirus vaccine will soon be available in the u.s. for the first time. the fda authorized johnson & johnson's vaccine for emergency use over the weekend, and it's being shipped out today. so far only 7.5% of americans have received both doses of the other vaccines. johnson & johnson's chairman and ceo, that's alex gorsky, there he is, joins us to discuss. hello, alex gorsky. welcome to "cbs this morning." this is a big day, exciting news for all of us. we're glad that you're here. so the sound i think you hear are people rolling up their sleeves saying, "how soon can i get the shot." how are you deciding who's getting the shot, where will it
7:31 am
b distributed? ready, set, go, please, sir. >> months. >> how soon do you think it will be before you have more supply available? >> well, we're on track to
7:32 am
deliver, as i said, four million within the next couple of days, 20 million by the month of march, and we'll have 100 million doses between now and the end of june. and again, what's really important to remember is that's 100 million people by the end of june can have one shot and be done. and so we think that the convenience, the ease of logislod logistics is significant, not only for our country but for people around the world. >> i've heard that people over the age of 18 are eligible. is that true? >> that's true. in this initial round, our indication is 18 and older. we're already starting on studies for people that are between the age of 12 and 18. we're looking at starting trials even in younger patients, in pregnant women, because we realize we need to generate that kind of information so that people can have the trust and confidence for it to be used, and we're confident that over the course of 2021 we'll have that data available. >> how effective is the johnson & johnson vaccine against the
7:33 am
new variants that we're hearing about that are spreading so quickly? >> it's a really important question because when we conducted our clinical trials on our vaccine, it was during the months of basically september, 2020, to january, 2021, when the incidence rate was at the highest levels we've seen thus far. the second thing is we conducted it around the world. so about 40% of our patients were in the united states. another 40% were in latin america, and about 15% were in south africa. over 90% of whom had the south african variant. so whether it was the south african variant that we know is particularly challenging, the p2 variant in brazil, our vaccine showed 85% effectiveness in severe disease, and it kept all the patients out of the hospital and from dying. so again, even in these most challenging areas during the high highest incidence rate we're seeing these results with a single shot. again, it's going to be really
7:34 am
important for people to get a shot as soon as they possibly can. >> all the experts say whatever shot you can get, please take whatever is available. why is it okay to just get one shot with your vaccine and the others need two? >> there's a lot of science behind that. they spent years developing that. so to get the right balance of effectiveness, of safety, of dosing and all those combinations, has put us in this position now where we can achieve those results on a single dose. >> alex gorsky, koceo of johnso& johnson, thank you and thanks for the work your company has done. you can always get the news by subscribing to the "cbs this morning" pac. hear the top stories in less than 20 minutes. ahead, highlights from the unusual golden globe awards handed out against the backdrop of the coronavirus. and fresh controversy. we'll l be right b back.

7:50 am
saying, "vote warnock." one of the team's new owners is former dream player renee montgomery who says, "my dream has come true." she will make history as the first former player to be an owner and an executive of a wnba franchise. >> that's such a cool development. >> right? >> that was an untenable situation there with the players revolt against their owners. that couldn't go on. >> they were wearing the jerseys that said "vote warre n vovote he raised more money and shot up in the polls. >> yeah. >> the impact on the campaign. >> we don't want you here -- >> everybody feeling better this morning. >> as i said, it was in the works for some time that the team was up for sale. it's wonderful that a former player now an owner. >> yes. >> really cool. all right. other good news -- just a few minutes ago we learned that print's prince philip was transferred to a different hospital in london where he will continue to receive treatment for an infection. the queen's husband due to turn 100 in june is expected to stay

in the hospital until at least the end of the week. he's said to be comfortable and responding to treatment. wishing him well. meanwhile, we have a sneak peek at oprah winfrey's highly anticipated exclusive interview with prince harry and meghan, duchess of sussex. harry talks about his late mother princess diana and the public pressure on her. take a look. >> i can't begin to imagine what it must have like for her going through this process by herself all those years ago because it has been unbelievable tough for the two of us. at least we have each other. >> i keep saying this every time we do this story -- no subject was off limits. the preview shows oprah telling the couple, you've said some pretty shocking things here. harry and meghan stepped away from full-time royal life one year ago. last month, buckingham palace confirmed the couple won't return to royal duties. oprah with meghan and harry, a cbs prime time special, has been extended to two hours. >> whoa. >> yeah.

it airs on second night right here on cbs. >> probably a lot more -- >> as you said last week, oprah said about this interview that -- >> she believes it's the best she's ever done. she said it wasn't just her, though, it was because the conversation apparently was so candid with all three of them. they all looked comfortable talking to each other. >> the preview clips are incredible. at one point harry talks about being worried about history repeating itself. >> yes. they taped at a friend's home. people said it was at oprah's house -- it was at a friend's. s stay withth us. coming u up tracee e ellis rossl be with h us.

the white house. who, who, who will that be? i wonder? >> that former republican party also attacked by name other republicans who have denounced him and voted to impeach or convict him. >> republican senator rick scott is a former governor of florida, chairman of the national republican senatorial committee which supports gop senate candidates. good morning, thank you for being with us. we appreciate it. as tony just mentioned -- >> good morning. >> good morning. the former president, again, falsely claimed that he won the election. you have said you accept the -- you accept the presidential election results. how does the republican party move forward if you're still arguing about the election results? >> sure. first i want to thank j and j. i think it's great we're getting another vaccine out and i hope everyone can get their vaccine as quickly as possible and everybody get back to school and the economy going again. you know, i had the opportunity to go to cpac last week and put a memo out last week to republican activist donors,
8:05 am
party leaders, about this republican civil war has been canceled. we're not going to look backwards. we're going to go forward. a lot of things the biden administration are doing that americans, republicans and independents don't believe in. we don't believe in open borders, in closed schools, we don't believe in men in women's sports. so we're going to focus on the issues and going forward. we're going to have i think a great 22, bring everybody together. the republicans will take the house are the senate and i believe the former president is right we're going to win the white house in '24. >> you say the republican civil war has been canceled but vice president mike pence, congressman liz cheney were absent from cpac. the president directly attacked republicans who voted against him in the impeachment trial. how do you have a unified party? how is the civil war canceled if that is going on in public? >> well, here's the way the party works. get out of washington. the farther you get away from
8:06 am
washington, the more united the republicans are. and what biden -- biden is our unifire, pelosi and schumer. the idea we're going to open our borders and apiece dictators, we're going to go back to the old way we did business with china, these -- killing the keystone pipeline that is unifying republicans around the country. what's going on in washington is not what's going on around the country. what's going on around the country people say i want my job, my kids back in school, i want to fund the law enforcement, i want a safe community, strong military, country that stands up to dictators. that's what the republican party is going to do and the democrats are doing the opposite. >> senator, you're right, that washington is a different animal than the rest of the country but those senators and members of congress calling out the president they're representing or trying to represent what they think the viewpoint is in their states. i want to get one more question here in on the divide that we're seeing. mitch mcconnell, senate majority
8:07 am
leader until this past election, has called president trump morally and practically responsible for the assault on the capitol. former president trump for his part calls mitch mcconnell a political hack. that seems like an untenable situation for republicans. how do you go forward? >> talk to the people out in florida. go around florida. they're not talking about what these party leaders are saying. what they're talking about is what's good for my family. they're talking about issues. when i ran for governor i talked about the issues and that's how i won and how we're going to win in 22. talk about the things people care about, jobs, education, law enforcement. that's what they care about. they're not -- they're not talking about what party leaders are, you know, their -- anything they're saying about each other. the civil war is absolutely canceled. we're not going backwards. we're going to go forward and win in '22. >> to your point, senator, one of the things people are worried about is getting relief from the coronavirus. the democrats are pushing a covid relief bill that you oppose.
8:08 am
you say it's too big. isn't it just important to get relief out to people as quickly as possible? >> well, look, this is somebody's money. we need to do the right things. let's help people that lost their job and help the businesses that are struggling. less than 1% of this is about the vaccine. i mean, what did we start -- what did you talk about all morning is johnson & johnson. less than 1% of this bill is abouthe vaccine. it's about a bridge for chuck schumer, a tunnel for nancy pelosi. this is about -- this is about paying back liberal politicians. it's not about getting our country back to normal again. let's focus on the vaccine and testing and let's focus on helping people that lost their job and focus on getting our businesses going again. that's not what this bill does. it's really disappointing. it's very partisan. it's not a bipartisan bill. it's not -- they didn't come to the republicans and say let's work together. every bill we did last year we allocated $4.5 trillion was bipartisan.
8:09 am
there's still a trillion we haven't spent. >> senator, i hear that as a point of political messaging. i think the democrats are aware that it would appear that you guys are holding up something that as you point out is not all about those unemployed americans but would help about 10 million. what do you politically here and say to them this morning about why you're saying no, when this could help them? >> come talk to us. we want to help people. but we're not going to go waste americans' money. we have 27 trillion dollars worth of debt, interest rates going up, because of government spending. let's do the right thing for the american public. let's help people that have lost their jobs, let's help our small businesses and let's make sure we have vaccines and testing. but wasting americans' money when you know somebody will have to pay that back, you will, your kids or grandkids that does -- that's not the way washington should work. >> senator rick scott, thank you very much for being with us this morning.

hospitalized after contracting the virus. >> she literally was in critical condition. the doctors told me and the nurses told me she wasn't going to make it on december 25th. we were preparing for her to just pass away. thankfully she pulled through. but it also was eye opening for me. like i made the right decision for myself. >> reporter: currently, fernandez is working a part-time job from home, bringing in some $1,200 a month. and fernandez's roommate lost her job at the beginning of the pandemic, making their $1,800 monthly rent payments impossible. what happens if you're evicted? it's dead of winter now. >> i don't know. >> reporter: as state and federal moratoriums are expected to expire in the next few months, an estimated 30 million to 40 million americans are at risk of being evicted. black and latino people make up approximately 80% of those facing eviction. but it's not just renters. landlords say they're feeling
8:19 am
the pressure, too. how many of your tenants are behind right now? >> they're all behind in one way or another. >> reporter: liz dunn owns six buildings in seattle, washington. it's made up of more than 20 small businesses and nearly 30 apartments. >> my entire goal is to try and keep every one of my tenants in their space until we are all the way through this. >> reporter: dunn admits that's been difficult. she's accepting less in rent from tenants and has been directing them to grants and loans. how are you able to afford your tenants that grace to say, you know, just chalk it up to the pandemic, and when you can start paying me in full, we'll move forward? >> well, that's where the local banks come in. so they're affording me the same grace. for example, i'm getting help with not having to pay principal on the loan, just making the interest payments. >> reporter: for renters who don't have a landlord like dunn, there may be some relief coming
8:20 am
soon. the federal government's emergency rental assistance program went into effect in january. $25 billion is being made available to states to help assist quaualified households wh rent and utilities. but experts say it may not be enough. >> i've never been in a situation like this. >> reporter: for fernandez, who recently applied for food stamps, the future is uncertain. >> they literally said you make $3 million. so i wasn't poor enough to get assistance, but i didn't have enough to be able to survive. >> reporter: what are you most concerned about when you think about your situation and the more than 40 million americans in this country who are on the verge of being kicked out of their apartments? >> i'm thinking this is going to further create a homeless crisis. i want people to know that this can happen to anybody. >> reporter: fernandez and her roommate were taken to court, housing court, by the landlord.
8:21 am
we did reach out to the landlord for comment but did not hear back. >> this has got to feel overwhelming. what can be done to help those like miss fernandez who are facing eviction? >> reporter: you know, we spoke to a housing expert, and they said that this is a big issue mainly because of that back run, that $25 billion that the government has set aside is used to help those renters and landlords with that back rent. but you have to apply. on top of that, it's up to the states and local governments as to how that money is distributed. experts say the bottom line here, the issue is best addressed through policy changes and making more affordable housing available. gayle? >> all right. thank you very much. ahead, a red and black show of support, you could say, for tiger woods as he recovers from last week's car crash. guess what that is. you're watching "cbs this morning."

8:30 am
welcome back to "cbs this morning." it's time to bring the stories we call "talk of the table" this morning. anthony is up first. >> yeah. i've got some sad news. irv cross, the nfl star who became the first black man to be a full-time tv network sports analyst, died yesterday. cross played nine nfl seasons before cbs sports hired him. he became a staple on the nfl today in the 1970s and '80s. >> the jets have a good football team, but they feel like second-class citizens in new york. they have to beat the giants to establish themselves. this was their playoff game. >> he would spend 23 years with this network. cbs sports chairman sean mcmanus
8:31 am
said irv was a pioneer who made significant contributions to the storied history and tradition of cbs sports. and along with phyllis george and bret musburger said the standard for nfl pregame shows with "the nfl today." cross was 81 years old. the one thing you read in everybody who's paying tribute is that he was like the consummate gentleman. >> i remember watching them. >> so do i. irv cross. >> glad you noted that, anthony. i'm noting something a little off. the medical board of california is going to investigate a plastic surgeon who appeared at a zoom traffic court hearing for some sort of violation. problem was he was in the middle of an operation himself. take a look. >> so unless i'm mistaken, i'm seeing the defendant that's in the middle of an operating room -- >> i have another surgeon here doing the surgery with me, so i can stand here and allow them to do the surgery also. >> not at all. i don't think so. i don't think that's appropriate. >> so the judge there told dr.
8:32 am
scott green that it was not right to conduct a trial under the circumstances. they would have to reschedule. dr. green did apologize during his zoom appearance. >> he needs to apologize to the family of whoever that was laying on the table. just because mr. man decided to be cute. thank goodness the judge had sense to say, no, we're not doing this. that's not even funny. >> i do not know how it happened. i don't. what was the other -- >> we know how it happened. he decided oh, i'm going do this today. >> tell your patient i'm going to take a break from surgery because i need to deal with a traffic ticket -- >> or your colleague, you got this? i've got to make a quick call. >> can you imagine if you were the colleague? no tanks. my "talk of the table," we're kicking off women's history month. can you believe it's already march 1st? i can't get over that. we've got a special guest. all month long we're going to be celebrating women and talking with female leaders in sports, politics, business, and entertainment. joining us this morning to kick it off is a very successful
8:33 am
actress, she's an entrepreneur, she's a golden globe winner, yes, she is. she is tracee ellis ross, stars in the hit show "blackish." she's also the founder and ceo of the hair-care line pattern. pattern is great, too. it focuses on hair health and empowers black women job. there's nobody better. >> thank you. good morning, gayle. good morning, you all. how are you? >> we all be good this morning. let's talk about pattern for just a second. number one, it's got great packaging. i used it over the weekend. >> thank you. >> you've got the leave-in conditioner, you've got the intensive conditioner. i feel really good sitting here talking to you today. but you talked about when you started this line it was your own personal journey. what do you mean by that?
8:34 am
>> yeah. well, like so many black women, i could chronicle my journey of self-acceptance through my journeney with my hair. and society's standards of beauty didn't include or celebrate the authenticity of my hair or the magnitude of its importance or its legacy. as i went through my hair journey, i noticed and saw so many missing things in the market. and it was a ten-year journey for me birthing this company, took ten years to get it off the ground. and by the time i did get it off the ground, i had sort of a bible of what all -- all of the things i wanted the company to answer. and i wanted pattern to be an access point for people where they could, you know, celebrate and be their most beautiful self in their own bathroom. >> yeah. good to -- so good -- that's funny -- to feel beautiful in your own bathroom with you, yourself, and you. i know it feeling. i that feeling. >> usually we think there's a professional thatt has to give s our beauty.
8:35 am
and i disagree. i think that you can have access to your most beautiful self in your own bathroom. >> i still need a professional, thank you. i still need me a professional. you said that the pandemic has re reinvigorated you and your business. how so? and your mission? >> well, the mission of the company is to meet the needs of the curly, coily, and tight-textured community. we're an active space centered around the celebration of black beauty. loving and uplifting our humanity, and where we're the subjects and not the objects of our content. and we've noticed in -- covid and the racial reckoning has laid so much bare. we noticed how w we care for ourselves is so important. and how we maintain our self-hood and not much else exists. so self-care is an act of self-love. and i also think that hair is a portal to our souls, and that it connects us to our legacy and our ancestors and our identity. and so the act of caring for our hair is essential in honoring
8:36 am
our existence and our dignity and our humanity. and as a company, that's what we do. you know, we wilill continue -- and the pandemic sort of reinvigorated the mission. we get back to serving, supporting, and loving the community and honoring and celebrating and lifting us up. >> got it. >> it's anthony. i want to talk about one of your other careers at the moment. acting. in 2017 you won a golden globe for best actress in a comedy. you were -- at the time, you were the first black actress to win that award since 1983. what do you make of what's going on with the hollywood foreign press association and the revelation that among their 80-something members there's not a single black member? >> well, i think that no black members is a symptom of a problem and not the problem itself. and i think with power comes a lot of responsbility. and the hfpa has a lot of power.
8:37 am
i feel like we're in a time in this country where so many of the systems of oppression have infiltrated all industries. and i nthink the hfpa is no exception. it is time for change. and i don't think it's about cosmetic change. i think it's about fundamental change, and that requires a lot of accountability and responsibility. and change. you know, these hidden power structures and toxic cultures need to go. >> were you satisfied with the statement they made last night which was basically that we know we have to change? >> i don't think statements are anything. i think action is everything. and i think -- i think fundamental change requires a real self-awareness and really taking a look -- and again, no black members is a symptom of the problem, it's not the problem itself. >> it's like every mom's always says, actions speaks louder than words. let's talk about "girlfriends." a big anniversary for "girlfriends," and now streaming
8:38 am
on netflix. what's that like for you to watch it again -- or do you watch it again? >> i did watch it -- i've watched somee of it. i wewent in, i wentt out. it's fascinating. i'm so amazed at how we holdd u over time. how the subject matter -- the stories that we werere telling really still feels so relevant. >> yes. >> i mean, but look how young and tight and thin. >> guess what, tracee ellis ross, you're still young and tight and thin. it could go -- two ways, either you cringe and go uh, or you say i like pretty good. you can say the latter. you look pretty good, and you still do. tracee ellis ross, thank you. cheering you on. give yourself a round of applause. always good to see you. >> have a great day, you guys. >> you, too. our women's history month coverage continues tomorrow on "cbs this morning." we'll talk to abby wamback and her wife and bestselling author. neil degrasse tyson answers your cosmic questions including

8:43 am
queries: star talk's guide to who we are, how we got here, and where we're going." based in part on his star talk series where fans ask big questions to the big astrophysicist. in that spirit, we asked our viewers for their own cosmic queries, and tyson answered them at his home base, the ross center for earth and space at the american museum of natural history right here in new york city. >> hello. i'm neil degrasse tyson, your personal astrophysicist. and let's get straight to your cosmic queries. ♪ bobby asks -- why does the moon have seemingly more craters than we have here on earth? that's an excellent question. so it's not just that it seemingly has more craters, it does have more craters. what's really happening here is we're getting hit just as often as the moon, except we have an atmosphere to protect us. thompson asks -- what would happen to earth if the sun were to disappear for five seconds?
8:44 am
you wouldn't know about it for eight minutes and 20 seconds because that's how long it takes the light from the sun to reach us. the whole world would plunge into darkness, and we would fly off at a tangen into interstellar space. and make a good science fiction story, but you'd have to come up with the reason why the sun would disappear for five seconds. >> this is a ufo, unidentified flying object. >> one viewer from cliffwood beach, new jersey, writes, when humans visit other planets, are we considered the aliens to that planet? yes. could the resident beings be hiding in fear of us? that's possible, but generally before we land on another planet, we send reconnaissance missions. we send missions that orbit the planet, take photographs, repeated photographs, so that we can choose where we want to land. if there were beings on that planet walking around and then
8:45 am
they see us ready to land, we would have caught them doing their thing. and so i'm pretty sure they're not hiding from us in fear. >> but only pretty sure. pneil degrasse tyson joins us nw to answer our cosmic questions. neil, good morning to you. let's stick with the big one, the biggest of all i think. are we alone in the universe? >> yeah, we don't know for sure. but if you ask any informed pe you would be ego centric to other otherwise. yeah. maybe we're not alone with other microbes but other intelligence, as well. >> that's the followup question. if no, we're not alone in the universe, there are other beings out there, what does life look like out there?
8:46 am
how do you define life? >> you know, i mean -- i can tell you this -- hollywood does a bad job at it, all right. all the life forms that they tend to show, they have two arms, two legs, eyes, nose, mouths, head, and most life on earth doesn't have that. so that's -- we have dna in common. so i don't think they do a good job imagining life elsewhere. the blob was pretty good, 1958, steve mcqueen film. that didn't have a -- it was an invertebrate thing that didn't have anything you would identify as humanoid. plus i guess there was no actor inside of it. >> then the question becomes where is everybody, which i think is a fascinating question. if we think life is out there, beings of some kind, we don't know what they look like, don't know anything about it. where are they? how come we haven't heard from them? are we a zoo here? are we like their experiments?
8:47 am
>> yeah, so a lot of suggestions for that. one is they have visited, and hay s they sort of were intrigued by us and we're in a zoo that they've collected. that's one hypothesis. i don't know if that's good or bad. that's a hypothesis. another one -- my preference is that they have visited but have not hung around because they went back to their home planet and reported that happen there was no -- their own planet and reported no intelligent sign of life on earth. >> were you glued to your tv watching "perseverance" land on mars? is it something you would like to do one day? >> oh, yeah -- only after they test the human rockets that go first. >> yes. >> i joke about there -- if elon is going to send a rocket and wants to put me on it, send your mother first, bring her back safely, then i can go. yeah, i'd totally take a trip. totally. it's only a nine-month trip. you give me a good netflix account and a few books, i'm good. >> what i think is so interest being your book, one, it's
8:48 am
beautifully done. i love the illustrations. i love your tweets. i think it's great whether you're interested in science or not interested in science. one of the things that stuck out to me, you said some of my best friends, actually all of my best friends are made up of chemicals. i never thought of it like that. of course it's true, of course it's true. but i know -- you see science in everything. i remember when you were in the green room telling us about when you go to the beach, the lessons you give yourself children just sitting there watching the waves. they go, dad, we just want to look at the waves. you're dictating all these things. do you see science in everything, and why do you love it so? >> yeah. i see science in everything because science basically is in everything. >> yeah. >> and it's the source of -- it's the pathway to learn what's going on in fulfillment of your curiosity that got you there. so with my kids at the beach, i wouldn't give them answers, i would toss them questions. you know, why is the water receding? why is it coming back?
8:49 am
where does the water go when it goes through the sand? how many sand grains are there in a pocket -- in a fistful of sand? >> can i be your child? i want to answer -- >> i was fascinated by that. >> your personal astrophysicist. >> can we go to the beach together? science is in everything, neil degrasse tyson. dad jokes are, too. and those are in the book, as well. so come for the science, stay for the dad jokes. we appreciate you coming on this morning. thank you very much.
