7:06 am

7:08 am
pop up. and passing major legislation like this only gets more difficult the closer we get to next year's midterm elections. >> got t nancy. thank you very much. today marks the start of a major test for vaccine mandates all around the country. while new york city's mandate for teachers to be vaccinated was put on hold by a federal judge, the mandate for the state's health care workers is going into effect. those workers must now have at least one dose and that's leading to fears of staffing shortages. an estimated ly vaccinated statewide. and that's about 16% of the workforce. we're joined by dr. ashish jha, dean of brown university school of public health. good morning, dr. jha. always good to see you. >> good morning. thanks for having me back. >> okay. let's start with the vaccine hesitancy among the if he had cal workers because if i was a nonvaccinated person and i see health care workers are not getting vaccinated, i would think do they know something
7:09 am
that i don't? how do you explain the vaccine hesitancy among that group of people? >> yeah, so, gayle, the way i remind people is that 97, maybe 98% of all doctors are vaccinated, 80%, 90% of nurses are vaccinated. so there really isn't a lot of hesitancy, it's a very small group. they're very noisy, they're very loud and they make it look like lots of health care work err are hesitant but they really aren't. most health care workers have gotten the shot already. >> that's really good to know because you're right they are very loud and noisy and get a lot of attention. now here in new york there is a plan possibly to call in the national guard health workers to fill in for some of the shortages. what do you think of that? and have you ever heard of such a thing? >> yeah, the shortages are being caused by the fact that we have had this massive surge in the south and so what that has actually meant is pulled nurses away from new england, new york, mid-atlantic, midwest states to the south. that is really causing a major
7:10 am
part of the problem. i don't think vaccine mandates are the source of the shortage, but it is unprecedented to have, you know, national guard coming in to help, but this is the crisis we're in and as long as the infection continues to rage in many places in the country, we're going to need stopgap measures like this. >> can we talk about dr. rochelle walensky's decision where she went against her board? we talked about it briefly last week and she is still defending her decision. what do you make of the difference between the two? >> yeah, i actually thought she made the right call and i didn't think it was actually a close call. you know, the advisory committee and it's just an advisory committee, said that they did not see evidence that high risk health care workers, people who are on the front lines needed to get a booster yet. i disagree. i see the data as showing that they do and dr. walensky clearly reads the data the same way. this is her prerogative, she is
7:11 am
the appointed head of the cdc so i thought she made the right decision. >> then again you then have the problem again of the mixed messages and i think the last thing people need who have not been vaccinated is to get mixed messages. >> i totally agree, gayle. i mean, look, the messaging on this has not been as clear as it should be. here is the way i would think about it, first of all, absolutely essential right now that people get their first shots. if you have not been vaccinated, my goodness, you have got to go out and get vaccinated. if you are six months out from your second shot and you are in any kind of a high risk group or high risk profession the evidence is coming in that you probably should get a booster. that's basically the message that we should be saying, get the first shot if you haven't, get a booster if you are in a high risk situation. i think that's where the evidence is. >> i can't wait to get the booster. i will try not to trample little children on the way to get in line. thank you very much, dr. jha. >> thank you. >> i won't, i promise. thank you, sir, for your time. turning now to the investigation into the murder of
7:12 am
gabby petito. over the weekend a memorial was held near her childhood home here in new york. petito disappeared on a cross-country road trip with her fiancée brian laundrie. jericka duncan has been following this for us. good morning. >> reporter: good morning to you. a lot of people attended that memorial, family, friends and those touched by gabby petito's story mourned her loss this weekend. yesterday hundreds of people lined up at a long island funeral home to pay their respects to petito. some waited at least an hour delivering the eulogy petito's father joe said he couldn't be more proud as a father. >> gabby is the most amazing person i have ever met. so if you are going to leave here today, i'm asking that you guys be inspired by the way she treated people. all people. >> brian laundrie, gabby petito's fiancée was not mentioned but petito's father said he received emails from around the country from people who said they were in toxic relationships and in an apparent
7:13 am
reference to laundrie said if there's a relationship that you're in that might not be the best thing for you, leave it now. the manhunt for laundrie continues today after an exhaustive search in a florida nature reserve has so far turned up no clues. the fbi, though, has an arrest warrant for laundrie. yesterday they returned to his parents' home for personal items they need for dna matching. >> jericka, you've been covering this case for us in 48 hours. what he had stood out to you? what else caught your eye? >> the obvious question is where is brian laundrie everyone wants to know and how did we get here. what stood out to me actually was the close connection with the family. you know, the father, the biological father, made a point to say gabby didn't v you know, two parents, she had four, referencing the step parents, but just talking about the amount of love that she had for them they had for her. i mean, we knew early on when we interviewed them last week they
7:14 am
were advocates as a unit, all four of them. so i think to see the strength that they are able to exude to get through this really difficult time is really amazing. >> i thought it was touching, too, that the father took that time to encourage people to get out of an abusive relationships considering what his daughter went through and many in the family and her friends didn't seem to know that it was as bad as it appears to be what we're learning. >> and just his overall message to live. you don't know, tomorrow is not promised and just, man, i was so impressed by how well they kept it together at that memorial service and speaking about her. what an incredible young woman. >> jericka, thank you. in our next hour we will look at why some missing persons cases like gabby petito's draw so much attention and why others are ignored. overseas now an election in germany yesterday is set to decide the future of that country and possibly all of europe. german chancellor angela merkel who dominated german politics for 16 years is stepping down, a more liberal government is likely to replace her, but we
7:15 am
still don't know when. chris livesay is in berlin. narrow owe election, three parties can claim some portion of leadership. what do we know? good morning. >> good morning, tony. we are still weeks if not months away from finding out who the next german chancellor will be as the focus shifts to forming a coalition government. no matter who the candidate s well, they're virtually falling over themselves to prove who most closely resembles angela merkel. >> reporter: after 16 years in office angela merkel former research scientist and daughter of a lutheran preacher is finally saying good-bye as german chancellor. lauded as a bulwark of europe helping save it from imploding during the 2009 debt crisis. her secret, a stoic calm that didn't just influence german society, it defined it. says political scientist frank stauss. >> there is a lot of common sense if you want to in the german public and she maybe eve

four president sees, befriending some, clark with former president trump as he retreated from international affairs, many looked to angela merkel as the new leader of the free world. says political analyst david deiss deissner. >> i think the trump years made clear that the western values do not necessarily only have to be represented by the situates, i think this is why many people said that she was really carrying the torch of western values and freedom. >> reporter: while trump wanted migrants out. >> i will build a great, great wall. >> reporter: merkel opened germany's doors to more than one million refugees, her shining moment according to most germans. >> it is a good thing that then the question is how we deal with it. >> reporter: indeed there was a backlash. on merkel's watch a far right party entered parliament for the first time since world war ii and anti-migrant movements took

pretty shot of the capitol. welcome back to "cbs mornings." earlier this hour we told you about the political fight in congress over the $1 trillion infrastructure bill. now advocates worry about the fate of new auto safety rules that are tucked inside that measure includng one for vehicle seats. it was prompted by a cbs news investigation that revealed potential seat back tardangers linked to a standard that may be outdated. we have more now from the capitol. that's a long time. good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning. it's been a long six years, and that's why we've been following this so closely. of course, that infrastructure bill will begin being considered
7:31 am
by the house later today. and tucked inside of it along with the tens of billions for roads, bridges, airports, and waterways, are a host of auto safety initiatives including one it aims to change a regulation that safety advocates say is dangerously outdated and causing some crasho turn deadly. crash tests like this one are an open secret among carmakers. our cbs news investigation found it's been known for decades -- when hit from behind, the front seats in all types of passenger vehicles can collapse, launching occupants into the back seat. the injuries can be catastrophic. something the frazier family lives every day. how has life changed? >> in every way, yes. >> like bc and ad. there's a definitiveness of we talk about our life before and after because they're -- there's no comparison. ♪

7:33 am
all too well. while regulators acknowledge these types of crashes are under-reported, safety advocates estimate at least 50 people a year, mostly children in the back seat, die from them. but the seats all meet or exceed federal safety standards set by a regulation dating back to the 1960s. one we proved even a banquet chair can pass. >> 200 -- >> i do feel that the time is now. >> reporter: new york congresswoman kathleen rice learned of the issue from our investigation and led the effort in the house to fix the problem. >> i think the credit should be given to cbs, for you to identify this issue -- >> reporter: inside the infrastructure bill is language requiring the national highway traffic safety administration to draft a new updated strength standard for vehicle seats within two years, but requires the approval of the secretary of transportation before it can be implemented. >> this is a fix that's going to happen, the car manufacturers know it, and we're going to get it done. >> reporter: but progressive democrats are threatning to

join house republicans and vote down the infrastructure bill unless the president's $3.5 trillion budget act passes first. they argue infrastructure alone fails to address the needs of the nation. the political wrangling has this potentially lifesaving reform hanging in the balance. what do you say to the washington politicians? >> the longer that you guys wait, you're adding to the list of people just like us. letting children and adult die in these rear-end car accidents unnecessarily. >> reporter: safety advocates would have liked to have stronger language that mandated changing the legislation instead of also having the secretary of transportation have to approve it. the frieaziers say any movemento action now is better than waiting for a perfect plan. it has been exactly six years since our first piece on this ran in october of 2015. in that time, a conservative estimate is at least 300 people have died in these crashes, most likely children.

we've always talked among ourselves. mostly the dialogue in terms of books has been amongst ourselves. people like nikole hannah-jones are reaching a lot of people. the 1619 project was seen by a lot of people. this is about white people and particularly white children now being exposed to ideas i think previously were segregated, frankly. >> does it make parents and teachers uncomfortable? why is this happening? >> i don't know that it even makes parents and teachers uncomfortable. i think it makes certain politicians in our system uncomfortable. the 1619 project was cited in an executive order. there are laws for instance passed in texas that specifically mention this work. this is the state. this is actually state action banning some of this work. >> what are the stakes in this fight? >> i think it's the polit

8:32 am
calls to blake on her phone, and she confessed that there were no bombs. she was charged with a felony count of terrorizing. the reason why this is so upsetting to me is 400 people were affected by this. they had to evacuate two different facilities. it cost taxpayers millions of dollars in a single day. she's now, you know, behind bars right now, remains to be seen what will happen to her. the plant, by the way, where her boyfriend works makes procedure swabs for covid-19 tests and other medical purposes. now his name is not being released. i can't imagine what he's thinking. i'm asking you, are you touched by this action or think she's coo coo for cocoa puffs. >> probably coo coo for cocoa puffs. probably has a friend that said i told you -- >> i tried to tell you. >> she was a little bit off. >> interesting to see what happens to that relationship and what happens to her. >> if love makes you do that, i don't want that type of love for sure. >> exactly right.

so before i get to my "talk of the table," i want you to imagine me having this conversation about 20, 25 years ago. there's some buzz words in here that throats a ws people off. my "talk of the table" is the selling of big bucks, nft. you remember this? >> we're going to do that again -- >> oh, my gosh -- >> honey. we're going again. >> oh, my gosh, mommy. >> oh, honey. >> oh, my gosh. >> tell me we're going to disneyland. >> so back in 2013, 2-year-old chloe seemed less than enthusiastic when her mom surprised her and her sister with a trip to disneyland. there it is. her unimpressed face quickly became a classic meme. okay, another buzzword. on friday the nft of side eye cloudy sold for -- a cryptocurrency equivalent of more than $75,000. 3f music based in dubai bought
8:34 am
it. she plans to buy a horse. ethereum, nft, memes, can make money. >> somebody bought that picture for $25,000 fake. >> it's not fake dollars. >> $75,000. >> okay. >> $25,000 ethereum. it's crazy the world we're living in. >> i don't understand it. >> we did understand chloe's face. >> i did get that. >> there's real money in this stuff. >> if they panned the camera to dad, he was probably crying, too. he doesn't want to go to disney world. he's happy now. >> you don't understand chloe's face. actress vanessa lachey is in the studio. find out about her role on "ncis hawaii" on cbs. she said, you know what, nick lachey, we're going to move the whole family to hawaii. >> not bad. >> what did nick say about that? we'll ask vanessa.

let me get this straight. you've got an a.i. strategy to deliver a better customer experience, that will help us retain our customers and even grow our business? how much is this going to cost? here's the figure. 59. 59 million? no, five9. as in five9 intelligent cloud contact center. they won't just power our transformation. they'll fund our transformation. yes, yes! exactly! what are you waiting for? ♪ ♪ "ncis hawaii." the disappearance of 22-year-old gabby petito renewed a conversation about who gets media attention in missing persons cases. critics say coverage often ignores people of color. consider this -- the black and missing foundation says nearly 40% of cases involving people of color, but they rarely make headlines. we're joined now by
8:39 am
da coounder, ce ica wi ing, derrw cor, they go missing, but they rarely get the headlines. why do you think this is? >> yes. oftentimes when a person of color goes missing, especially when it's a child, they're labeled as a runaway, runaways are not getting the amber alert, they're not getting that sense of urgency where people are looking for them. and when it comes to missing men and women of color, their disappearance is oftentimes associated with some sort of criminal activity. so again, they're not receiving that urgency and the attention, as well. >> what's the impact of this disparity? because we can only show what we know. and oftentimes we don't know what's going on local levels. >> well, i think it's a combination first and mower most we need -- foremost we need law enforcement to believe held accountable and making sure they're taking police reports. we need the media to share these cases and need the community to come forward.
8:40 am
we understand that not every case is going to bubble up to mainstream media. we understand that not every case is going toake 5:0 and00s cycle, but less is more. less of one particular race and more of everyone else that's missing, the greater the chance of reunion. we can name the natalee holloway, the caylee anthony, the laci peterson, the chandra levy, but no can name one black or brown missing person of color in the united states, not one. >> so gwen iffel called it a missing white woman syndrome. can you explain that? >> yes. that term is actually unless you're, you know, fairly attractive, white, blonde hair, blue eyes, your stories are just not sensesational enough. and these families, they're desperate. you know, over the past few weeks we've seen the news coverage with gabby petito, and our hearts go out to the petito
8:41 am
family. but there's a lot of gabby petitos in the black and brown community. these families are hurting. they're so desperate to find out what happened. and they want to understand why is that case any different from their missing loved one because there is nothing worse than not knowing, not knowing if your loved one is hurt, if they're being mistreated, if they're cold, if they're hungry, if they're going to walk through the front door again. >> yeah. and that is the question, derrica. why is their case any different? i still don't understand why there is a difference. can you really talk specifically about why you think -- is it the media to blame? what do you think? >> i really think that we need more diversity in the newsroom. you know, the decision-makers don't look like us, and so, you know, we have to fight just to get our stories out there. you know, our lives are devalued when families go to law enforcement to report their loved ones missing. and so if you even go on the
8:42 am
social media platforms, these families are desperate. they're trying to create their own way of getting the stories out, and sadly so many families are being victimized when they're creating their own flyers. they're putting their personal information out there so they're being scammed. you know, they're receiving these calls, these ransom calls. we've had families to lose their entire savings. you know, we've had them to lose their homes because they were scammed out of it. they are so vulnerable. >> now derrica, i see you wearing the #helpusfind shirt. what can people at home watching right now asking themselves what can i do? is social media a good way to help get these stories out? >> oh, absolutely. social media is a great way to get these stories out. we ask for the community to demand change. you know, with the media outlets. we need more diversity. we need to hold law enforcement
8:43 am
accountable, as well. i was thinking back on a case that's also happening now with daniel robinson who's missing out of arizona. you know, he was working when he went missing. you know, leaving his job site. and law enforcement, they're not really taking the case as serious as they should. you know, when i spoke with the father the other day, he's saddened because you look at the television and you see that with gabby petito's case they brought out the drones, the divers, the four wheelers, the list goes on and on. and he's having to create a gofundme just so he can hire a private investigator and a search team to look for his son who is a geologist in arizona. >> yep, i just heard about that story last week. listen, i love the helpusfindus because the media attention as we know makes a huge, huge difference. >> absolutely. thank you all for using your platform to help us tell the
8:44 am
story. >> thank you, derrica. thank you for coming and enlightening us. a lot of people need to hear your message today. hopefully that's been delivered. we'll be right back. but his diabetes never seemed to take one. everything felt like a 'no.' everything. but then ray went from no to know. with freestyle libre 14 day, now he knows his glucose levels when he needs to... and...when he wants to. so ray...can be ray.

8:48 am
they didn't find anything. what happened there? >> nothing. >> interviewed by fbi, hpd, me, you didn't tell anyone about this. >> he did it from time to time. bad prostate carl said. it's not a big deal. >> kind of a big deal this time. >> and vanessa lachey joins us now. vanessa, welcome. >> congratulations. >> congratulations. >> can i say congrats to you guys? >> thanks. >> this set, studio, 1515 broadway has a whole new look. i love it. >> did you get tingles when you were coming down the street? >> when i was driving, i said to my girlfriend, i have some an exact, butterflies, but it was a got anxiety, excitement. >> this is memory lane for you. your old stomping grounds. >> like 20 years ago. gosh. >> the old "crl" studio. some of the cameras have the tape on the side. >> i was wondering if i signed -- i was trying to think, did i sign something before i left. i'm looking at the decor, it's definitely -- >> you still look the same. >> oh!
8:49 am
are you asking me or telling me? >> i'm telling you. >> thank you or -- >> you look great. >> you look great. >> thank you. >> let's talk about "ncis hawaii." >> yes. >> on our monitors, it's beautiful. take "ncis," hawaii which is beautiful, it's a great show. it's a really great show. your character is fantastic. >> thank you. i'm honored. this is the first time the franchise has a woman in the lead. as you said. >> how can that be? >> well, mark harmon started it, and then they went to ll cool j and chris o'donnell. and then scott bakula. now i get the honor of being the first female -- call it special agent in charge, sanc. >> your character is a bad ass, her kids are playing a sporting event. the helicopter pulls up, and she's like, mommy's got to know. you don't know what it's for. >> it's interesting. i never thought about it but when you say how can it be,
8:50 am
that's a good question to ask, how can it be? i like that i'm part of it now. this change of -- there have always been female women in "ncis," just not on television. maybe this is a tick in the right direction. >> this segment prompted me to watch "ncis" for the first time ever. >> ever? >> i am completely hooked. now i understand why the show's been so strong for so many years. >> thank you. >> you were very excited when you got this role. you posted to social media a tearful clip. do we have that? >> we do. >> let's check it out. >> i got the job! i'm so happy. and i couldn't take the video because i was -- i don't know what to do. thank you. i'm so happy. >> that's what i call the ugly cry, vanessa. >> it was -- >> ugly cry because it was deep and sincere. those tears seem to me more than just i got this part. were -- was it?
8:51 am
>> yes. you know, it's funny because when you say it is an ugly cry, and i remember my social media -- i have a girl who helps me, lauren. she was like, i think you should post this. and that never crossed my mind to say, oh, this is an ugly video, because it was more than that to your point. this is a mother of three who -- i've been in this industry for 20 years. and when people always talk about there's no overnight success, people work in this industry in many different avenues. i've hosted, i've done behind the scenes, in front of camera, i've done a lot. and this moment was a culmination of all of that hard work. it was a culmination of covid and questioning what am i -- who am i, what am i doing, am i a mother, an actress, a lot of time at home with my husband. we had the hardest time in our relationship which in turn became the best time in our marriage, and we're stronger than ever. and so i got this call, it was -- it was right after i got a call from cbs that the show i did do for them was not going to go. >> ah. >> talk about one door closing
8:52 am
and another open. two weeks later this happened. >> yes. >> and it was just -- with my son in the car. and -- >> i love that part. >> i can do it. i can do it all. >> it's hard to rewrite the narrative of your career especially when people put you in a box. i can understand why you were emotional. i want to get back to you hosting "trl." what memories come to mind? you talked to some mega-stars. >> mega-stars. honestly, i think -- and you did this actually just now. gayle and i sat on the swing. you were working in between the commercial break. she sat next to me for three minutes. we had an easy, casual conversation. that's what i remember most is behind the scenes, there was a couch, and i'm telling you, if there was a camera back there, that was the show. >> those are the stories. >>those were the stories. that's when they were real. that's when they were raw. >> afantas h outs magic. rtualaiihere. vanessa eyyo "nwairs monday 0, 9:00 central on cbs and
