7:03 am
>> his death on saturday sparked an architect over the feat in the high court. we begin with jan crawford who is outside the supreme court in washington. >> reporter: good morning. the flags here at the supreme court this morning as you can see are flying at half hand staff for justice scalia. people here at this court just cannot imagine what it's going to be like without him. i mean, he was known for his sharp intellect and his offensive sharp tongue and his sudden death will leave this court split for conservatives and for liberals. justice scalia's views on the constitution influenced a generation. >> i'm a law and order guy. i mean, i confess. i'm a social conservative but it does not affect my views on on cases. >> reporter: a native of trenton, new jersey, who grew up in queens, new york, scalia served on supreme court nearly 30 years. the current's court longest serving justice. nominated by president reagan he

she called him a jurist of captivating brilliance and wit with a rare talent to make even the most sober judge laugh. >> i could be charming and combative at the same time. what is contradictory between the two? i love to argue. i've always loved to argue. >> reporter: now one of his most significant decisions was that landmark ruling in the second amendment guarantees an individual right to bear arms. but, you know, he often was in dissent and he always said he hope he wouldn't be known nelson for his majority decisions but for changing the way that we think about the court and the law and interpret the constitution and, kristine, he certainly did thichlt sure did. >> in the meantime, president obama is in california to host a summit meeting with asian leaders and that event is being overshadow by justice scalia's death. also the political fight that is sure to come when the president
7:06 am
>> i plan to fulfill my constitutional responsibilities to nominate a successor in due time. there will be plenty of time for me to do so and for the senate to fulfill its responsibility to give that person a fair hearing and a timely vote. >> margaret brennan is traveling with the president in rancho mirage, california. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. well, white house officials expect a nasty battle with congressional republicans who have already threatened to delay or defeat any nominee that president obama picks. but history could be on the administration's side here. since 1900, six supreme court justices have been confirmed in presidential election years. that could stir president obama to make a bold choice of a judge who could face a tough confirmation or the president
7:07 am
sitting appellate judge. some names that fit that bill, chief judge of korpts merrick garland and jane kelly and sri convenient knee vassan who have unanimously passed national confirmations. white house officials say it would be irresponsible to leave this post on the supreme court vacant. you should expect the president to make a decision in the next 30 days possibly as soon as next week. >> the republicans who want to replace the president say that is the right move. nancy cordes is on capitol hill where democrats are fighting back and supporting the white house. nancy, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. supreme court confirm medications are high drama during the best of times and this is not the best of times. you have a democratic president trying to replace a conservative

7:10 am
talking about a choice that could change the very balance of the supreme court. charlie, there is almost nothing that legislators up here take more seriously than that. >> let's go back to jan crawford who has covered the supreme court for more than 20 years. jan, so what can the president do if the senate republicans are united in saying we are not even going to entertain this idea? >> reporter: very little, charlie. people talk about, well, elections have consequences. here is another example of elections having consequences in that u.s. senate. senate republicans have an enormous amount of power to block this nomination. actually, not even get it out of the senate judiciary committee. his pulpit is going to be the political one. he is going to be out there with his allies beating the drum. the republicans need to do this but he can't make them. >> jan, i am fascinated how this will affect the sixth big cases that are in the court's docket this term from abortion,
7:11 am
rights and affirmative rights and immigration. what impact does scalia's death have on those? >> reporter: this is a term that is chock full of controversy, as you just pointed out. we expected those cases to be divided along idea logical lines. most of the cases will end up a tie so the lower court decision would stand. that means there is not going to really be a national precedent on all of these issues. they could reargue the cases next year, but maybe not. so it really is unclear what any of those holdings would mean in some kind of a sweeping sense. >> jan, we did hear from margaret that president obama has a short list to replace justice scalia. any such thing as a noncontroversial nominee at this point? >> reporter: no, no, there is not. that is an easy no. i can't see anyone getting confirmed right now. >> fascinating.
7:12 am
justice scalia was known for his sharp mind and often sharper critique. an example of last year's dissent of holding up obamacare. he said it was jiggery-pokery and called one element of the argument pure applesauce. i asked him in 2008 in my pbs program how his colleagues viewed his style. do they ever come to you and say, yes? >> yes. and if a colleague has any objection to what i've said, i'll take it out. >> reporter: as a respect for the institutional? >> the colleague, the person, yeah. if somebody come to me and said it's over the top to say this will result in more battlefield deaths, i probably would have taken it. >> reporter: this is a group of people who like, admire, accept the differences and are looking for the common good as they see it. >> i consider every one of them
7:13 am
some closer than others, but which ones -- the closer ones have nothing to do with which ones agree with my philosophy. forever. >> he was such a good man and introduce himself to people as tony. not as justice. he was such a good man and a beautiful wife andhe left but he was best friends with those on the right. >> like opposites attract. >> we will look back at another conversation i had with justice scalia next hour. also with us in studio 57 is david bowes. plus how scalia put differences aside from the bench. that that is ahead. >> donald trump holds a big lead this morning in south carolina
7:14 am
republican primary. jeb bush hopes to boost his campaign today with a big rally featuring his brother, former president george w. bush. major garrett is in charleston with how the race has taken a new shape from saturday's fiery debate. >> reporter: the timing of president bush's appearance here could not be more timely. why 2018 president bush was lying about the iraq war and all of those long dormant accusations dredged up this weekend by the current republican front-runner donald trump. >> we would have been so much better off if bush and the rest of them went to the beach and didn't do anything. >> reporter: on "face the nation," donald trump backed away from accusations that george w. bush minute late fears of weapons of mass destruction
7:15 am
>> if you use that as a make up for sins from previous years it's a lie. maybe it's true and maybe it isn't. >> reporter: at a cbs debate on saturday, trump put it this way. >> i want to tell you, they lied. they said there were weapons of mass destruction. there were none. they knew there were none. >> reporter: trump quickly rejected jeb bush's defense of his brother's record. >> while donald trump was building a reality tv show, my brother was building a security apparatus to keep us safe and i'm proud of what he did. >> the world trade center came down -- >> go after my brother. hold on. >> reporter: in state where the bush name remains popular an anti-trump super pac is using it against him. many who thought rubio won the game. >> the world trade center came down because bill clinton didn't kill osama bin laden when he had
7:16 am
>> you are a liar. you are probably worse than jesh bush jeb bush. >> donald, adults learn not to interrupt. >> yeah, yeah, right. >> million. >> all right. >> give me a break. >> this is just nuts, okay? geez, oh, man! >> reporter: trump has a big lead here, but it's taking nothing for grant. campaigning here continuously until saturday's primary with multiple events each day. 2:30 press conference here the primary. >> thank you, major. good job on saturday as well. "face the nation" host john dickerson served as the moderator for saturday's debate and is in washington. good morning. great job as well on saturday. boy, it was nasty, pretty vicious. does how much does this have an carolina?
7:17 am
model of being friends with people with whom you disagree. the debate will probably sharpen, obviously, people's views about the candidates, but i think there's still sometime before that vote for things to settle out differently. i think what came out of the debate is probably that everybody reconfirmed what they already believed, although marco rubio, who had some repair work to do from his last debate performance did well and jeb bush who was hoping to capitalize on the family's relationships in south carolina also seems to have gotten quite good reviews from his performance. >> what do we expect from president bush? >> rally the family's support in that state. you remember, he beat john mccain there by 12 points after having lost to him by 18 in new hampshire in 2000. there is a lot of history of the bush family there. i think also it is an argument for the standards, the old-fashioned standards of duty and participating in the political process and giving
7:18 am
some of which have been supplemented in this debate so far in the presidential process, where outsiders are favorable and anybody who has been in politics is seen as not worthy. >> john, how do you think scalia's death will impact this race? >> well, i think it gives both sides and all of the interest groups. supreme court touches on the hot button issues. it energizes everyone. and when you think about it as a fund-raising mechle inging mechanism, if the president offers somebody up and there is a debate and the senate doesn't actually sit on it, every fund-raising group will have a reason to go to their donors your specific issue you care so much about is under threat in fa nominee goes one way or another or gets into the court. everybody on the sidelines, if they weren't already energized, a reason to be now. both in the presidential connect and in terms of who actually replaces scalia. >> thank you, john.

more real news ahead, including the legacy of justice scalia and the fight over replacing him. but first here's today's "eye opener@8." >> people here cannot i!agine what it'u going to be like without him. his sudden death is going to leave this court split. >> congressional republicans have threatened to delay or defeat any nominee. >> supreme court confirmations are high drama during the best of times, and this is not the best of times. >> this republican presidential primary is starting to sound like the democratic primary, not the current one but the one conducted back in 2008. >> john, what do we expect from former president? >> it rallies the family's support in that state. >> manning captured the second super bowl last week but what is accused of doing 20 years ago has everyone talking today. >> ll cool j says expect at
8:01 am
performance tonight from rapper kendrick lamar. >> this is part of the journey of our country. >> i'm interested in the mind of justice scalia. >> i like to argument it's one reason like the law, i think. i like to figure out where the truth lies between two different assertions. i don't wnow. it's who i am. >> today's "eye opener@8" is presented by nationwide insurance. >> i'm charlie rose with norah o'donnell and christine johnson of w cbs in new york. gayle is off. the next time the supreme court meets the one chair will be draped in black. the flag is at half staff after the sudden death of justice antonin scalia. member. president reagan nominated him
8:02 am
warren berger retirere >> his death leaves the court with four conservatives and four liberals. in an election year the effort to replace will be contentious. republicans have you to block any nominee from president obama. jan crawford is outside of the supreme court looking at his legacy and the fight over filling his seat. good morning. >> reporter: when you talk about political fights, i think the battle to replace justice scalia and i hate to throw the word unprecedented around, but it is appropriate. it will be unprecedented. justice scalia's c cservative voice changed the way people talk about and interpret the constitution. one of his most significant decisions was that second amendment case that said that an individual has the right in the constitution to bear arms. president obama is expected to announce the replacement, his nominee to replace justice scalia in the next couple of
8:03 am
the senate's court and then members of the committee are signaling they are going to move to block any nominee. in modern history, the senate has never filled a vacancy that occurred, as this one did, in an election year n. 1968 frampbl when chief justice warren announced he was goioi to retire, the senate blocked president johnson's choice to replace him. that nominee was not confirmed for more than year. i think you will see republicans really pointing to that as they try to stand firm to block this nominee. >> fascinating. thank you, jan. david boies argued several cases before justice scalia and the supreme court. he represented vice president al gore during the 2000 election recount. we're pleased to have him in the studio. welcome. >> good to be here. >> what's it like? you stand at the podium and
8:04 am
different? >> he was vy articulate. he asked a lot of really good questions. now, there are a lot of justices on the court that ask good questions, but he was particularly decisive. he had a good time doing it. humor. he liked to argue. and he liked to engage in intellectual back and forth. since i was usually on a side that was not his natural side, i felt a a engagement there that was enjoyable. >> you just heard jan say this is going to be an unprecedented fight to replace him. how does that affect this year's docket? >> well, f f any decisionsns it would have been 5-4 with anymore the majority and there were a lot of decisions like that in important cases.
8:05 am
means the court of appeals decisisi will stand. so the court of appeals decisions will now probably stand in those kind of cases. there are a lot of cases in the supreme court that a a decided 9-0. but the high-profile cases involving constitutional issues are often 5-4 now days. >> but the chief justice john berts has the authority to say let's rehear this next term. >> right. >> and they may do that. they very may well do that with some cases. >> do you expect he will wait to see what will happen in terms of this fight on capitol hill, what the president does? >> he may but no matter what the president does, that process is probably going to take months. not going to be oveve days or a few weeks. the court's session will be over in june. even if they get a new justice on in april or may, which would be pretty quick, you are not going to have time.
8:06 am
an appointment and the senate leader mitch mcconnell says we're not going to hear it, does the president haha any options? >> not really. you need the senate confirmation. i think that the senate could -- i would hope they would not. remember, justice scalia himself, they say they will but justice scalia himself was confirmed unanimously by republicans and democrats. they knew he was conservative but they believe the president had the right to appoint somebody who he wanted, as long as he was qualified. i would hope the republican senators would take the same. >> the fight will focus attention on the supreme court and the current cases before the supreme court which affect everyone's lives. we have cases on affirmative action, contraception and obamacare. voting rights, unions. there's really big cases beforee theourt this year. >> there are.
8:07 am
supreme court at the heart of the presidential election. >> how will it play itself out? >> i think both republicans and democrats, i think will be focused much more than they usually are on the power of the president to appoint a supreme court justice. that is in many respects the most endurinin legacy a president has. too often in political races that gets ignored. i think this is front and center. >> if obama gets to make the appointment that w wl be his third choice. >> yes. the next president, whoever that president is going to be, is likely to have another couple of choices. >> because they have justices of 70 and 80. >> scalia said if you can't disagree ardently with your colleagues about some issues of law and yet personally still be friends, get another job. we mentioneded he was friends with justice ginsburg. you knew him for a long time. he wasn't afraid of a
8:08 am
>> he enjoyed it. he held passionate views but even if he thought your views were wrong or maybe indefensible he never objected to you having your views. he liked people with different points of view. he liked to engage in that. he liked teaching law for that reason. >> in fact he did. he practiced with jones day and then decided he wanted to teach. so he then went to teach. >> i think being on the bench is the only thing that would have kept him from teaching. the liked the intellectual back and forth and arguing. he enjoyed it. >> the last point, too, he was towering in terms off intellect and whatate meant to the court while he was there. >> this was a brilliant judge. he was a brilliant, passionate, effective advocate for his vision of what the constitution ought to be. >> the strict construction and all of that. >> i don't know. i think that depends how you interpret the decisions but
8:09 am
something that he was a strong advocate of. >> the strongest advocate. >> i think. he brought the court along to a large extent on that. >> david boies, thank you so much. great talking to you. >> great talking to you. >> the cbs news gop debate saturday began with a moment of silence for justice scalia. all six republicans agreed the next president should pick scalia's successor, but that's where their agreement ended. >> the next president is going to appoint, one, two, three, four supreme court justices. if donald trump is president, he will appoint liberals. >> ted cruz, with your brother, wanted john roberts to be on the united states supreme court. they both pushed him. he twice approved obamacare. >> i did not nominate john roberts. i would not have nominated john roberts. >> you pushed him and you worked with him and supported him. >> don't interrupt me. >> why do you lie? you pushed him. >> adults learn not to interrupt.
8:10 am
he's so weak on illegal immigration it's laughable. everybody knows it. >> this is the standard operating procedure to disparage me. that's fine. >> spend moror on the commercials. >> if you want to talk about weakness, it's weak to disparage women. it's weak to disparage hispanics. >> marco went on univisiononn spspish and said he would not rescind president obama's illegal amnesty on his first day of office. i promised to rescind every single action including that one. >> i don't know how he knows what i said on univision because he doesn't speak spanish.h. this is a disturbing pattern. for a number of weebs now ted cruz has been telling lies. >> south carolina voters will make their choice on saturday in the state's republican primary. democrats will hold their primary one week later in the state.

8:42 am
when they switch. i mean about you inventing it. i invented the story, and isn't that what really matters?
8:43 am
i'm coming the entertainment news website tmz is the subjeje of an investigative piece posted this magazine. it draws more than 17 million visits a month. in 2006 it exposed mel gibson's antiis a mitedic comments. in 2013 donald sterling's racial comments and then in 2014 ray rice hitting his fiancee and
8:44 am
called "the digital dirt" how tmz gets the photos a a stories that everybody wants. nicholas nicholas schmidle is. >> to the extent they have transformed los angeles into a city of pigeons. they have people in the airports and they have people at the valets and restaurants. everyone is picking up the phone at the site of a celebrity i i a. and there is no shortage of, and calling tmz all the time and they are constantly collecting information and only a fraction of which appears on the website. that information is used -- it makes the individual who runs tmz, harvey levin sitting on a wealth of knowledge. >> you are full-time reporters
8:45 am
there is one who said h h makes over $30,000 a year contributing stories to tmz. then one step further are people. >> what is the good and bad of tmz? >> i think the good they have transformed celebrity news. no longer are celebrities able to say that story is not true, it. think about the ray rice video. when the first video goes up and shows ray rice dragging his fiancee out of the elevator, they can say we don't know what happened inside the elevator. the second video comes up and shows ray rice punch is his fiancee and suddenly, it's unimpeachable and they have changed the rules of the game. >> you say it shook the sportswriters s sd it shook nfl to its foundation. they had a real impact. but they operate by a far different set of rules than traditional news organizations like cbsbsews. they pay their sources tens of thousands to hundreds of thousands of dollars.
8:46 am
for sure. they -- what they have also done is if you go tohe cbs websisi and "the new york times" and new yorker even you go to the top of the website, it's not clear if someone picks up the phone how to get an event. think about the story -- think about edward snowden trying to find a place to put the stories. tmz you go to website and say this is the phone number and e-mail and where you call. the reputation is built up and people call and know they are going to get paid. >> we want to note we did reach out to tmz and they have not yet gonts gotten a response. you talk about mr. levin teaches his employees tactics to get these sources to cooperate and get the information. some of these employees, you spoke off the record. how do you know their word is true? >> yeah, sure. there -- so look. this is -- entertain celebrity news is not what i normally do.
8:47 am
we can see the story, it was kind of a challenge. how do you source up and investigate an organizizion as you would national security story or international criminal syndicate? and not comparing them to either. but it's just how do you source yourself up. you begin corroborating and corroborating and i spoke t t well over a hundred people for the publication of this story. when you hear the same story told multiple ways from multiple people you think what is the common denominator there and what is the common denominator? at some point in the reporting, a large number of e-mails were leaked to us. and these e-mails showed how tips comomin and how things operate and you could then get a sense of the cadence of how stories come to be. then when you're hearing stories from aanonymous sources. >> if the sources get paid or giving information to tmz, can
8:48 am
