This happened on the CBS Evening News on Thursday evening when Charlotte Bennett was talking with Norah O'Donnell on 60 on on the CBS Evening News, and we have audio now from Charlotte Bennett again. This is one of the accusers, and this is a former aide to Governor Cuomo. Now. The reason I make a deal of that is that In the past. We've seen some allegations against some politicians, and often it comes from somebody from the other party. But keep in mind as you hear the words of Charlotte Bennett. She is a former aide to Governor Cuomo. He asked me if age difference mattered. He also explained that he was fine with anyone over 22. How old are you? 25? What were you thinking? As he's asking you these questions. I thought he's trying to sleep with me. The governor's trying to sleep with me and I'm deeply uncomfortable. And I have to get out of this room as soon as possible. Now the governor had a somewhat sloppy press conference. I'll call a sloppy trying to clean up his mess. But in some sense, Doug it a little bit deeper and Charlotte Bennett did see that press conference and she had this to say to Norah O'Donnell on the CBS Evening News. Without explicitly saying it. He implied to me that I was old enough for him and he was lonely. Did you watch Governor Cuomo's apology? I did. It's not an apology. It's not an issue of my feelings. It's an issue of his actions. The fact is that he was sexually harassing me, and he has not apologized for sexually harassing me, and he can't even use my name. How bad is it for Governor Cuomo? Let me read you. A headline from

White House to release new guidelines after Khashoggi intel report
"Covert deaths, a new declassified version of the U. S Intelligence report concluding that Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Solomon often referred to his NBS approved of the 2018 killing of journalists, Jamal Kashiwagi, the officials saying that the report by the office of the Director of National Intelligence, Deanna In coordination with the CIA, concluding that the crown prince approved in likely erred erred, ordered the murder of Kashiwagi, who's washing post column had criticized the crown Prince CNN, NBC and Reuters are among those news organizations reporting that the group which had assassinated and dismembered this Saudi dissident, then flew to Istanbul on private jets owned by a company previously seized by the Middle Eastern kingdoms, Controversial MBS. But at the White House today, this question to press secretary Jen Psaki said. When they Talk that the president won't hold back. Will he be following up this talk with actions are sanctions on the table. E think there are a range of actions that are on the table. But the first step is the next step. I should say it's for the president to speak with the king. We expect that to happen very soon. As you know, we've committed to the release of an unclassified report that would come out from Deanna and not from the White House on. Of course, our administration is focused on recalibrating the relationship as we've talked about in here previously, and certainly there are areas where we will express concerns on and leave open the option of accountability. There also areas where we will continue to work with Saudi Arabia. Given the threats they face in the region. Well, hold up to the phone call. Is the king avoiding your calls? I don't think that's the characterization. The president has a busy schedule. The king. Obviously, I can't speak to his schedule. I'm not his spokesperson, but we expect the call to happen very soon. I think there was an inaccurate reporting about being confirmed when it wasn't a confirmed call. Yet if you have made clear that the president's gonna be speaking with his counterpart with it came with the Crown prince. But given the Crown princess role in the future of the kingdom, and that he is expected to be implicated here, why not speak to the person I expect to be responsible? Well, I think the president's conversation will cover a range of topics with the king. There's obviously A lot to discuss with Saudi Arabian with the leaders of Saudi Arabia, And as I noted, a previously noted the conferences have been engaged with his appropriate counterparts. The president will be engaged with his appropriate counterparts, and we're engaged at many levels with leaders in Saudi Arabia. So will the conferences counterparts here, But often he's teaching him about this issue that he spoke with him last week. They did a readout. I don't think I have anything more about their call from today's White House briefing. We should Point out during a September 2019 interview with CBS is Norah O'Donnell for 60 Minutes. Piece, the Saudi Crown prince denying any knowledge of Jamal cash. Augie's death his answers through a translator. The world wants the answer to this question. How did you not know about this operation about that? Some think that I should know what three million people working for the Saudi government do daily. It's impossible that the three million would send their daily reports to the leader or the second highest person in the Saudi government. Two of your closest advisors, who are accused of orchestrating this plot were fired by the king removed. From your inner circle. The question is, How could you not know if this was carried out by people who are close to you? The only doctors today the investigations are being carried out and once charges are proven against someone, regardless of their rank, it will be taken to court. No exception made. I've read what the Saudi prosecutor has said about those that are charged in this murder. And it's gruesome the details when you heard that people close to you and in your government carried out such a grisly murder, and that the American government thinks that you ordered it. What did you think I could be the godmother of Lord Coffee, Mother, Cutie. I believe what you mentioned is not correct. There isn't an official statement announced by the American government in this rig. Heart. There isn't clear information or evidence that someone close to me did something to that effect their charges and they're being investigated. But again, you cannot imagine the pain that we suffered, especially as the Saudi government from a crime such as this one. That from September of 2019 the interview available at CBS news dot com, and you heard the Saudi Crown Prince to a translator. Again the headline today a new declassified version of the U. S Intelligence report, concluding that the Saudi Crown prince did approve of the 2018 killing of

Cases of Flu Are Down Globally
"Job. Maybe next time you're here you can present. That would be getting green jobs. So i'm just asking when that happened. Richard trumka who is a friend longtime friend of joe biden says about that day one eastone. He says i wish he. The president has paired that. Were carefully with the thing that he did. second by saying. Here's where we are creating jobs. So there's partial evidence from richard trumka. Well you didn't include all of his interview. Would you like to include. How about this. The international union of north america said the keystone decision will cost one thousand existing union jobs and ten thousand projected construction jobs. Well what mr trump. Also indicated in the same interview was that president biden has proposed a climate plan with transformative investments and infrastructure and laid out a plan that will not only create millions of good union jobs but also helped tackle the climate crisis. That guy was peter doocy from fox news and i always hate his questions because he takes four ever to get to the point he just beats around the bush because his conscience is fighting him the whole time and at least that's what it seems like. It's like that tiny little part of them that still has morals and ethics is trying to tell him. He's being deceiving and a bad journalist. But pete here just wants at fox news money one of the more unexpected biden policies. I would say. Just because. I never thought he would actually do. It is that he announced on friday. That trump wouldn't be eligible to receive intelligence briefings anymore. This is the first time that a former president has been cut out of these briefings. But we've never truly had a president trump have we biden explained in that norah o'donnell interview saying quote. I just think that there's no need for him. To have the intelligence briefings. What value is giving him. An intelligence briefing. What impact does he have at all other than the fact that he might slip and say something and he also said that has shown quote erratic behavior. Well that certainly the polite way to say that. He's been acting crazy honestly if he didn't read them well he was president. Why should he get them now. I mean the way. I imagine it. They practically had to create puppet shows and plays to get him the information that was in those briefings like they probably had to act it out for him. The man doesn't or possibly can't read so the story here as promised is about the flus really bad year sir remember. I talked a couple weeks ago. About how bad well not. How bad how good for us it was that. This year's flu season is almost nonexistent. In that was in new york city as it turns out that sort of the case. Globally this reporting from the atlantic followed a doctor from the mayo clinic in rochester minnesota. And they just sort of talked it over with them. What they're seeing in. Why we might be seeing this really good flu season for us. He said on december first that they began testing all patients with respiratory symptoms for covert and the flu so thousands and thousands of these tests have turned up positive for covid but out of the twenty thousand flu tests that they've run which is ten times. The usual number zero have come back positive for the flu since early fall. Eight hundred thousand flu tests in the. Us have been done and only fifteen hundred have been positive. That's point two percent for context. That's about one hundred times so last year. We had a hundred times more cases at this time when we had done. Eight hundred thousand tests back then. The flu positivity rate was anywhere between twenty and thirty percent twenty and thirty percent a lot of other respiratory viruses have disappeared as well well disappeared in quotes because they're still out there somewhere including ones for the common cold. Obviously the reason for this is the number of restrictions and precautions that we've had to put in place social distancing masks etc and all of those help because the regular flu and covid spread in pretty much the same ways however covert spreads more easily because it can be passed on by people who don't even have symptoms in front example just look at all these super spreader events. That didn't happen before. It's not like if you went to the movie theater and just anyone had the flu. You al- suddenly got the flu. There are also differences at the macroscopic level. Like how it sticks to the particles that we exhale when we breathe or talk like cova sticks more easily so is easier to transmit of course doctors

"In person, I thought this is the most powerful woman I've ever met. I mean physically so powerful, and I was dumbstruck I just didn't even I. Mean I've interviewed presidents and prime ministers and princes and I just really didn't even know what to say to her. I was so. I love the idea that we can not only have power in our academic work in whatever we do, but then also have power of body. Strength. and. She also to me, embodies that in a way that I think is really powerful. What are you like as a boss? That's a great question. I need a lot of research. So I, think the simplest way to explain. It is I like to know everything. I read a lot I read six newspapers a day I get now I. Get I used to when I was in New York, I used to get six or seven hard copies now I get three hard copies at home, and then I read the restaurant at work so I read. Read a lot so I really kind of I think most folks who work me know that I kind of my mantra sort of tell me something I don't know so i WanNa know that nugget that I've missed in my reading I have to say that my first job at college was delivering the newspapers in front of the offices and I remember your stack. There were a lot of our Dhabi's everyone had their exact like i. need this in this in this order and I. I remember when. Danielle with folded those nicer. They're all over my. All over my desk here, you know I would be a good question to ask other people but I mean I read a lot, so there's a lot of research notes. I like binders with tabs, but I think. The only other thing I think is a non speaking of those my assistant. Who Work with me? They know that I that I'm not good at remembering is but I wanna remember birthdays and things I always try and send birthday notes and baby gifts, so you know people who work with me know that I need constant reminders about stuff because I value that like not gonNA executing it, so they know I need help you know executing those kinds of things I wanNA. Talk a little bit more about obviously. There's the role that you play as as a journalist, and also there's the role that you play as a leader and a key figure at a news. News Division when you took over as the anchor of the Evening News, following a difficult time at CBS some people at the top were like go because of inappropriate conduct or sexual misconduct, including your former co Anchor Charlie rose whether you expected to or not you and your boss. Susan's are inskeep. You guys have represented. You know the future of a news division and really a different time in news. How did you think about setting the tone, not just for the viewers, but for the people that were working for you guys every single day because watching it from the outside. It seems like there would be a great deal of leadership needed in that difficult time. Yeah I did I thought very seriously about it. I think that what I said on the air that morning, and then I repeat it again when other instances happened at CBS News and there were there was also executive changes was that you know women cannot achieve full equality in the workplace until there's a reckoning and there has to be zero tolerance. And I. Mean I was Pretty Direct I. think is the way that I would put it on the air and I had friends look over exactly what I was GonNa say, because I wanted every word to be perfect and I wanted it to stand the test of time. I think people can do, but I think Oprah has commented about what I said. You know on the air that morning and I'm proud of what I said and I'm really proud, and I'm really proud of of CBS for making the changes that did and Susan Zaremski is like no other boss. I've ever had in my entire life. You know my mom, always Ramesh. She's like you are so lucky to work for that. Susan's too risky. And it's so true and what she does is that she not only is so involved in every detail, but she also leads with incredible heart. She sends emails. Saying that was a great piece. You know. She constantly calls and checks aunt. She after. You know any big night or something like that she'll concentrate on speakerphone, and then she'll take to the entire crew about what a great job everything was. So I think the interesting thing that I've learned just now is that? Those instances are really really hard, but the change and the growth that happens after is good. It's positive. It's right having Susan's Renske as as the president of CBS News is truly. It's the best moment in my career. We're not had great bosses that are men do, but I'm saying this. Is You know the reckoning that we went through? has led to what is the most a rewarding times ever in my career. That's really great and We know Susan while she's amazing and by the way when she when she was. Moving into that role, there was ridiculous criticism of a true and she's to me is is bulletproof i. mean she's really honestly. There's been a CBS for forty five years. She is universally beloved by everyone you know. We are going to move to our lightning round very difficult. You'RE GONNA, have serious bond very quickly to our rapid fire questions.

Kim Jong UN has always been on my bucket list and Justin Timberlake. Surprisingly is actually a very difficult interview. You get at long but online, and because I think he's incredibly talented. Well I have a lot of questions on that one Meteo. What is the worst professional mistake you've ever made? I don't know I think I've just forgotten it I. Mean I don't dwell on those things. My husband always says no regrets, so I can't remember it I'm sure I've made. Many I'm sure. When's the last time you negotiated for yourself? Every day every day. What is your shameless plug?

"Blower. What is it like to be criticized by the president publicly? You know because I covered president trump before he's done it to me just. In Person It's interesting. How much he closely follows everything that said about him, so I think that's part of his operating mode to criticize. Publicly, he pushes back very very strongly I. It doesn't bother me at all and I. Don't respond to it because the facts speak for themselves, and I'm from the School of journalism where you keep your nose to the Grindstone, and the story speaks for itself, and the journalism speaks for itself, and I'm not in the business of engaging with him I'm. That's not my role. My role is to report back and ask questions and make sure that people feel like they trust the product and. You know when I took this job. As anger. The CBS evening news I went back to look at a lot of what Walter Cronkite said, and one of the things he said is journalism what we need to make democracy work. Another way to say that as an informed electorate is what we need to make democracy work. And the electric has to trust the journalists who deliver that news and so I do take that responsibility very seriously i. do believe that journalism is in some ways of public service I think we're almost in a public health service role right now in covert nineteen and so i. don't engage you know when we get attacked. You know we. We let the facts speak for themselves. The News business is notoriously competitive. As we talk about in your intro, there have been very few women who have been able to host their own evening. News show who've gotten as far as you've got an an obviously has paved the way for people like degnan. I to look up to and I'm very curious. How you navigated such a competitive environment when you are coming up and at the same time built a support network like everybody needs somebody to go to to vent somebody to go to to fall apart to. What did that look like for you? You know I think it's a really important question and I think in many ways the sisterhood just get stronger when I got the job of the CBS. Evening News Barbara Walters sent me a lovely note. Diane Sawyer sent me a lovely note. Katie, couric and I are very good friends and you know she watches every night. In like a week ago, I winked at the end of the broad s that she said. Were you waking at me like I'm impressed Katie that you saved to the very end of the right, so I think I love that you know there's a deep appreciation for that Gail called me yesterday morning in Saint Paul my Gosh, the right interview, it was so good on sixty minutes and I you know we were just to kill I gotta go. I gotta work out. She was like what so I think. Sisterhood is strong I think women have a deep appreciation of what one another has gone through and so I, appreciate that cheerleading. I? The I've never felt like. I wasn't supported. I think the hardest thing is noticing how women are judged differently, and I do I. Hesitate to bring attention to it but I. do think it's important to talk about because I. think that women are judged quite differently. For some reason it is insatiable for the tabloid press to suggest that there is some fight between women you know I admit. I I believed it when they used to write about Barbara Walters and Diane Sawyer Oh. They must not like each other you know or what's been written about me. Some really petty awful stuff. And you know I don't the only thing I can think about is for some reason that is, it sells papers, but I think we have to make sure that as men and women that we. Read these things with a critical eye and realize they're meant to sell papers or term pages, and they may not be true, and the reason that's important is because. I believe that women don't want to run for office or don't want to be CEO's or being a C. Suite, because they are afraid of being criticized, you know I mean there's also a strong correlation between the rise of social media and less women, running for president of their student body class, even in high school and in college, because they are concerned about the criticism, because it can be painful, and so we have to get over that and have kind of that Rhinoceros skin that Eleanor Roosevelt talked about. I think fats. What you just said makes a lot of sense. Also hearing, you say it in the position that year and I'm like Yeah I. I get it, you know. I'm just not gonna read. I'm not going to go on twitter and read the stuff that people say about us in. Get upset, but it's hard, and it's hard to develop that I also think in some ways. We had an advantage where when you grow up in news, you're kind of tossed into this world, and it helps you develop that scan, or you're not going to work in the industry for very long looking at you now. It seems like just such a given that you have that confidence. But where does that come from? How did you develop it where you always like that kind of leading the criticism Roloff No I mean certainly criticism still stings no doubt I think confidence comes from a strong support system. You know my mother has always said. Make sure you build strong support system around you, so the simplest explanation would be like your friends. You Know I. Mean You Judge Your friends when you're feeling down or something's gone wrong, so we do that in a personal setting, we need to do it in a professional setting and build a strong network of people around you who support you. And, so you know I have a team I. Don't respond to that or you know really highlight all the positive stuff or say this is what should focus on today, and I think that helps build confidence, but the most the really the most important thing that helps me build offense is the quality of my work. You know in the quality of the interviews that we do and that people trust. Me Entrust CBS News. What's your most favorite interview that you've done? You know it's hard to pinpoint one. But I would say that Malala Yousafzai. Remember after nine eleven well first of all I remember Diane Sawyer, going to ASEAN before nine eleven and reading about women who wear burqas and thinking. I, read about it, and she did a special on in thinking cut. This is something I you nothing about how do I not know anything about this? And then nine eleven happened of course, and then I read about how many women in Pakistan and Afghanistan or literate much women men to in so Malala became even before she won the Nobel Prize became, but certainly after she was nearly assassinated, she became for me. Someone who was a symbol of how the world needs to change that. Empower girl you change. The world is the simple way that it has been putting energy educated girl. You change the world and you know for a sixteen year old. She had the most incredible presence and confidence and sense of herself and I thought. How does have someone have that at such a young age? And really. Spend your life promoting values. You know because then that's where that confidence came from I. Think with her was a value that girls should be educated like that makes you stand tall. Yes, girls should be educated should be treated equally so I think that is the most meaningful I look at her as someone into, said Gosh so glad I met her at an early age sixteen and I hope I get to know her in thirty years and I hope that someday she becomes. You know this historical figure she already, but I mean someone who can actually change the world, so maybe that is the other person, too. I just love Serena. Williams who we interviewed you know when CVS USTA air, the US Open the open members. Winners used to come on the next morning. And of course singer.
"norah odonnell" Discussed on Skimm'd from The Couch
"Hey everyone is show might sound a bit different today because we're skimming from three different couches, the same is continuing to work from home for the time being because of covid nineteen today O'Donnell joins us on skin from the couch. She is the anchor and managing editor of the CBS Evening News, making her the third woman ever to so anger, a network evening broadcasts before taking the helm of the evening news. She was the CO host of CBS this morning for seven years norad. Thank you for joining us welcome skin from the couch. Thank you for having me, so we're GONNA. Start off with Skim your resume for us. Will I went to Georgetown University I was Law Sophy Major? I was interested in a lot of different things in college so I had internships at always worked and worked at a law firm I. worked at the World Bank, and and then I injured ABC News and I think you know journalism really was what was the right fit for me? Just a deep curiosity about the news, deep curiosity about world events and people have to graduating from college I got a job at National Journal on a publication, a called the hotline, which was the original kind of aggregate her of news before the Huffington. Post and others got into the business of aggregating news. Even like you guys in some way, remember it well, and that also was like a crash course in politics, too, because we would. Sum Up every Senate and House race across the country, all the polling who all the key consultants were, so that really was a great crash course in politics, and then I got hired at NBC and MSNBC when I was twenty five years old to be you know it was one of the youngest correspondents at NBC history, and had a great career at NBC and had three kids, and then we all work on intelligent news underwear like personal services contracts. All of us have anywhere from two to five year contracts. In, so you know in each of those contracts, come up! You have an opportunity to reevaluate your next step and CBS came to me with an incredible offer to be. The chief White House correspondent for Obama's last term, and to be the substitute anchor for face, the nation, and I had always been ambitious about wanting to anchor a Sunday broadcast I love politics, and so to be able to substitute for the legendary Bob Schieffer at thought. This is really an an excellent opportunity, so. and. CBS. News and then Kinda. The rest is history should I keep going? No, that was perfect so something you definitely don't know I. and turned at MVP when I was nineteen in the specials unit, and I was like my first week on the internships. Let's say day two or three in you opt into the office. And you're the first professional famous news anchor I ever seen in person and I literally I stopped breathing I was so excited all I wanted to do is to be a news anchor at the time, and I was so nervous, and when you walked out of the room I asked one of the producers. What is she liked you work with her I will never. Never forget their like she's the best of the best, and I was like what makes her so good. And they said that she always does her homework and I think about that a lot and I'm curious. What is something that you your fans and people like us your big fans? What does the thing that we don't know about you that we can't Google? What I wasn't as good about doing my homework in college. And I did just fine at Georgetown. But I do I think certainly a professional that is dry. Always did know my homework because I do believe that preparation builds confidence and confidence build success, and so for me, you know certainly early on my career as a young correspondent with so many famous people at NBC legendary careers. My confidence wasn't a tie, and so I thought how can I be the smartest person in the room and no more than anybody else and. You know I just really did my homework. I really worked really hard to make sure I knew everything. The thing that people may not know about me. You Know I. Guess would be that I'm from a military family. You know I mean that certainly is my resume, but it's the one thing I mentioned because you know I remember in covering certainly the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq after nine eleven, a lot of people would say on television and Mike Barnicle on morning. Joe would say this a lot that Oh, no less than one percent of people have someone in the military who didn't understand these wars, but I grew up in the military. My father was drafted during the Vietnam War. State for thirty years I lived overseas and so I really do have a deep appreciation for those who serve my sister-in-law surgeon in the army and so I do have a really keen sense of the sacrifice that many people go through, and I do in some ways I almost wish that it was mandatory almost like in Israel that we had to sir because. I think you know certainly the discipline that they have is unlike anything I've seen those who sir. Let's actually start with that because I think it's fascinating talking about how you grew up and living overseas. How did this love of news and growing up with that military background kind of come together for you? You know I think one of the. First crystallized for me in some ways when Elena, Nachman Ost, who is still the vice president of talent at NBC? News said to me when I met her. When I was twenty five years old, and she said you know we like hiring correspondents who have from a military background, because they're very flexible and adaptable. They don't complain about being sent to different cities or states or around. Around the world they can talk to anybody because they've sort of been put in that situation where they have to be totally adaptable. Moment's notice and that was the first time someone can really validated kind of my experience and I thought. Wow, I didn't realize that that's something you know a gift that my parents gave me because it wasn't always easy moving around with different friends and. Was An easy on my my mom's certainly picking up and moving around, and even though we were very lucky, didn't move that much, so I think that's one of the things I hope that I'm flexible and adaptable. In many ways I'm I can talk to a lot of different people understand where they're coming from. I think that's a key component of being you know a journalist, and then the other thing is I really appreciate public servants, and I mean those who serve in in office as Representatives at senators as those who work in government so I, don't come to. Any administration with a cynical attitude, I say these people have given up a lot to have the name in the press to be criticized to be judged. Testify before Congress I think having come from a military background I do try approach each of those people who serves in government the appreciation that they're. They're coming to this to actually help their country whether they do that well or not. The press will hold them accountable, but I think that's why most people trust needed to help. Tell their story like Rick Bright. The whistle blower who he just did for sixty minutes. I want to talk about the whistle.

Why the 'CBS Evening News' failed to air for a chunk of America
"Night an explanation for why didn't air no news was not good news for CBS he was on the east coast and in the Midwest was shut out of their daily fix of the CBS evening news the nightly newscast anchored by Norah o'donnell is done in Washington was supposed to be sent out through a control room in Washington but it had technical difficulties and no back up instead of seeing the o'donnell newscast local stations in the east and Midwest got a feed of the CBS and streaming
