sacrifice of life by the british and american armies. >> begnaud: and ahead of the d- day anniversary, the extraordinary friendship of two leaders who changed the course of history. good evening from new york. i'm david begnaud. this is our western edition. there has been a dramatic turn in the investigation into what happened at marjory stoneman douglas high school in parkland, florida, where 17 people were killed last year. the man whose job it was to keep those students safe was arrested. surveillance tape shows the school resource officer never entered the building as bullets flew. and late today former broward county sheriff's deputy scot peterson was arrested on 11 criminal charges, including child neglect and negligence. here's manuel bojorquez. >> reporter: peterson was arrested late this afternoon after a 15-month investigation by the florida department of law enforcement, which announced today peterson was "derelict in his duty, failed to act consistently with his training, and fled to a position of
6:32 pm
personal safety while crews shot and killed m.s.d.h.s. students and staff." the report also states peterson was "in a position to engage cruz and mitigate further harm to others and he willfully decided not to do so." during the six minutes nikolas cruz carried out his deadly rampage, peterson never entered the building. instead he hid outside for 48 minutes. surveillance video from five motion activated cameras show peterson's response about a minute after the shooting began. peterson, in the dark green uniform, quickly turns and jumps into a golf cart to investigate. he radioed the sheriff's office with a warning. >> reporter: the report says peterson knew where the gunshots were coming from but did not investigate the source of them. seconds later peterson is seen running and then stopping to radio dispatch again.
6:33 pm
>> reporter: peterson stays across from building 12, which is out of view just to the left of the pavement. he directs officers to lock the school down and block traffic. >> reporter: according to the report, peterson instructed deputies to stay away from the building instead of following law enforcement response procedures that call for eliminating immediate threats. >> he was a coward, and he froze outside the building instead of going in and engaging the threat. >> reporter: laurie alhadeff's 14-year-old daughter alyssa was killed in the shooting. >> with him being arrested today, that gives accountability to me and the 17 families. >> reporter: we spoke with alhadeff here where the safety commission, tasked with investigating the school shooting, was meeting. scot peterson has defended his actions all along. he was booked into the same jail where the confessed shooter is also being held. david?
6:34 pm
>> begnaud: manuel bojorquez leading us off tonight from parkland. thank you, manny. today we found out it could take two to three years to investigate whether big tech companies are stifling competition. apple is one of the companies under scrutiny. incoming cbs evening news anchor norah o'donnell spoke about that and other issues in an exclusive interview that she had with the c.e.o. of apple, tim cook. >> reporter: is apple too big? >> no, i don't think so. but with size i think scrutiny is fair. i think we should be scrutinized. i don't think anybody reasonable is going to come to the conclusion that apple is a monopoly. our share is much more modest. we don't have a dominant position in any market. >> reporter: so you're saying you're not a monopoly? >> we are not a monopoly. >> reporter: but elizabeth warren, who is campaigning for president, says apple should break up its app store and other parts of its business. >> well, i strongly disagree with that.
6:35 pm
i think some people would argue if you are selling a good, then you can't have a product that competes with that good. but that's an argument, norah, that takes you down the path that walmart shouldn't be stocking an alternative or house brand. and so this is decades of u.s. law here. and so we'll be... we'll tell our story to anybody that we need to or that wants to hear it. >> reporter: the latest chapter of apple's story was unveiled monday at the company's annual developers conference in san jose. >> i was looking for you. >> reporter: in these hallways, cook is king. >> hey, guys. >> reporter: you're the biggest celebrity here. and what he says on stage is a sort of gospel for programmers who gather from around the world. >> we are so inspired by the millions of incredible apple developers.
6:36 pm
>> reporter: this year apple's big announcements included a farewell to itunes, software to further protect privacy, and a new dark mode for the iphone screen which cook says will be easier on users' eyes. i want to ask you about screen time. >> yeah. >> reporter: do you know how much screen time you use every day? >> i do because i get a report every week, and i found it to be pretty profound. so i dialed back a whole bunch of notifications and sort of stopped myself from being too antsy about picking up the phone. >> reporter: so the c.e.o. of apple is saying don't pick up your phone as much? >> i'm saying we made the phone not so that you'll use it all the time. we made the phone to make your life better. but for me, my simple rule is: if i'm looking at the device more than i'm looking into someone's eyes, i'm doing the wrong thing. >> reporter: apple's rollouts come at a critical time for the company. sales of its iphone continue to sag and the ongoing trade war between the u.s. and china threatens its core business.
6:37 pm
how hard is apple getting hit by president trump's trade war with china? >> well, currently the chinese have not targeted apple at all, and i don't anticipate that happening, to be honest. >> reporter: but it's been reported if there is 25% tariff on the iphone xs alone, it could add $160 to what is already, you know, a very expensive device. would that hurt sales? >> sure it would. i'm hoping that doesn't happen. the truth is the iphone is made everywhere. it's made everywhere. and so a tariff on the iphone would hurt all of those countries, but the one that would be hurt the most is this one. >> reporter: president trump calls you a friend. how would you describe your relationship? >> i think we've had a very straightforward discussions, many of them. he listens to the commen whapiate
6:38 pm
somehe doesn agree, my philosophy on things is that you always engage, even when you know that you're going to wind up on very opposite sides. >> reporter: there are many other c.e.o.s and there are many tech leaders who say they won't even meet with president trump, but you engage with the white house regularly. >> i do. and i'm proud to. i mean, because i don't believe in the, i disagree with you so i don't have anything to do with you. the way you stop the polarization is to talk. this is sort of like step one. and i don't want to be a part of the problem. i want to be a part of the solution. >> begnaud: well, norah, that was wide ranging and interesting. tim cook doesn't sit down for those types of interviews very often. i hear he had a warning for you about the 2020 election. >> reporter: that's right, david. when we asked him whether or not he's worried about fake news ahead of the presidential election, he responded quite
6:39 pm
pointedly that he is worried, that fake news is not under control. he says that outside forces are still using it to manipulate the way we think, and without using facebook by name, he suggested that platforms like facebook amplify fake news with their news feed and that it can't be solved with artificial intelligence. david? >> begnaud: interesting. norah, thank you very much. you can see more of the exchange about fake news and more of norah's interview with apple c.e.o. tim cook. we have an extended version on our website right now, it is day two of president trump's visit to britain. thousands protested across london. the president downplayed those demonstrations though, saying what he saw was thousands of people cheering for him, and in a switch, mr. trump had kind words for the outgoing prime minister. ben tracy is traveling with the president. >> it's the greatest alliance the world has ever known. >> reporter: all that red, white
6:40 pm
and blue certainly proved the point, but at this news conference-- >> i've always talked openly with you, donald. >> reporter: there was another special relationship on display. >> i think you deserve a lot of credit. i really do. >> reporter: president trump complimented prime minister theresa may after repeatedly criticizing her handling of britain's exit from the european union. >> and i seem to remember the president suggested that i sue the european union, which we didn't do. >> i would have sued, but that's okay. ( laughter ) i would have sued and settled maybe, but you never know. >> reporter: mr. trump is pushing for a major post-brexit trade deal and seemed to suggest that the prime minister, who resigned on friday, helped get it done. >> i don't know exactly what your timing is, but stick around. let's do this deal. >> reporter: the president is clearly enjoying his visit to london, calling the queen and the royal family "fantastic." the president brought his own family, all four of his adult children, along on the trip. but he's also trying to ignore the locals who are not so happy
6:41 pm
to see him. >> it was a very, very small group of people put in for political reasons, so it was fake news. >> reporter: but at the president's motorcade drove down downing street, he may have seen this: a blimp depicting him as an angry baby. my colleague roxana saberi was with the protesters. >> reporter: several thousand protesters were in the street, far fewer than last summer, but still passionate. >> i disagree with trump's views on immigration. i basically disagree with everything that he's done. >> reporter: so does philadelphia native don lessen, who commissioned this robot of president trump tweeting and talking on a toilet. >> you are fake news. >> reporter: what would you say to those who would call this distasteful and offensive to the president? >> the president is distasteful and offensive. this is a guy who insults everybody. >> reporter: tonight there was no name-calling as the president and first lady hosted prince charles and the duchess of cornwall for dinner. now the president heads down the
6:42 pm
coast tomorrow for a d-day anniversary ceremony. he will also meet with some american veterans there. the queen will be there, as well. that's where she will say good- bye to the president as he heads to his golf club in ireland. david? >> begnaud: ben tracy in london tonight. thank you, ben. the president while in britain today he warned that republicans in the u.s. who are in the congress, he said to them it's going to be quite foolish if you try to block the threat of a tariff that i may impose on mexican goods. that's what the president said. he said a 5% tariff is set to begin next week, and the president says it would go up 5% every month unless mexico takes steps to stop the flow of migrants from central america. could it be that something we have been told for decades about our food is wrong? there is a study out today seems to suggest white meat, including poultry, may not be so healthy after all. it could affect your blood cholesterol level the same way as red meat. so we asked our dr. tara narula, who is a cardiologist, about this. so doc, it was a small study,
6:43 pm
about 100 people, but a lot of attention this headline is getting. what is this about? >> it's important to talk about it. because the headlines can be misleading. >> begnaud: sure. >> nutrition science is complex. as you mentioned, this is a small study, a short study. it didn't look at if i eat white meat or red meat, do i increase my risk of things like heart attack, stroke, or death. what it did tell us is if you eat white meat or red meat, regardless of how much saturated fat is in the diet, you raise your levels of l.d.l., or bad cholesterol, by about the same amount, and you raise them more than if you ate a plant-based diet. so either there is something in the animal protein itself that's raising bad cholesterol or there is something in plant-based diets that is lowering or something in both. >> begnaud: for so long cardiologists like you have said limit how much red meat you eat. does this change that? >> this isn't going to change what we say. red meat is a big category. and a lot of the red meat that's consumed in this country is fatty red meat that's full of saturated fat that increases that bad cholesterol. a lot of it is full of sodium. this study just looked at lean
6:44 pm
red meat and unprocessed red meat. we also eat a lot of processed things like baloney, sausage and ham. in addition, what is interesting is recent studies have shown that when you eat a lot of red meat, you change your gut bacteria. you actually produce a chemical that can be pro inflammatory and help promote plaque formation in the arteries. so there may be something outside of the cholesterol that is worrisome about red meat. >> begnaud: bottom line, she said earlier, more plant-based and less meat. >> more plants. >> begnaud: thank you, tara. coming up next on the "cbs evening news," why the world health organization is investigating the deaths of an american couple vacationing in the south pacific. and the mass shooting in virginia has prompted the governor there to make an unusual move. an unusual move. ♪
