>> i i guess tea iss not a good idea. >> clean it up, harry. >> this morning's "eye opener" is presented by progressive, making it easy to bundle insurance. >> killed the prince. >> potholes get you again. get you again, can't wait to see that. we welcome you to "cbs this morning," we're beginning in the middle east where a u.s. military attack sends an unmistakable message to iran, the overnight air strikes targeted iranian backed militia members in syria near the iraq border. responding to recent attacks to u.s. targets in iraq, one of them killed a civilian contractor and wounded several other people. >> defense secretary lloyd austin told reporters he's confident u.s. fairs had struck the same militias that carried out that attack. senior foreign affairs correspondent and face the nation moderator margaret brennan joins us, what's behind
7:04 am
this decision to carry out this attack? >> reporter: well, this is the first military strike of the biden presidency, and as commander in chief the president chose to target along the syria/iraq border, he chose it carefully so it would count as payback for iran having put u.s. personnel in harms way last week in a rocket attack but stopping short of further escalating tension. an administration official told me the biden team selected the location to achieve those two things and avoid ticking off our partners on the ground in baghdad who are stuck between keeping good relations with both iran and washington. as our david martin reported previously, this was considered iranian enabled. these were iranian made weapons given to a shiite militia but not iranian directed. so by striking along the border they can send a message, but not have to take tehran on head on. >> so margaret, what do you think this says about the new
7:05 am
president's approach to foreign policy? >> reporter: well, it shows how important keeping his options open with iran are to him. he is trying to avoid escalating tension but also felt he couldn't let this go. he had to send a signal. remember, just last week the biden administration put out two diplomatic fishing lines, one to reopen nuclear talks with iran, and also to start talks about releasing american hostages there. so by picking this target carefully they can say knock it off without saying all other options to begin talks are closed. >> margaret, the biden administration is set to release a report that ties the saudi crown prince to the murder of journalist jamal khashoggi. president biden spoke with the saudi king yesterday. what do we know about that conversation? >> reporter: this is an important relationship for the united states, the 85-year-old king, and president biden had to
7:06 am
have this conversation about the broader relationship. and then this very problematic issue of the son, the 30 something-year-old crown prince and his direct role in approving the murder of the journalist is something that they would really like to be able to handle without disrupting the broader alliance between the two countries. but the biden administration's kind of in a box here. they have to look responsive. the president talked about this on the campaign trail. so what you can expect is for them to try to send a message. i would expect in the coming days to hear from the administration that they're going to adopt a new policy directive that sends a signal, do not attack u.s. journalists but that it won't just apply to saudi. that way they can look responsive without being really sort of provocative between the two countries. >> margaret brennan, thank you, margaret. president biden's bid to
7:07 am
double the federal minimum wage apparently will not be part of his covid relief package. the house is due to vote today on the $1.9 trillion plan to address the economic impact of the pandemic, but the official in charge of senate rules says that raising the minimum wage to $15 an hour should be removed from the bill. nikole killion is on capitol hill for us. good morning to you, this affects millions of people. >> reporter: it does, tony and democrats plan to pass the president's plan through a budget process called reconciliation. that allows democrats to pass a big package in the senate with a simple majority but the tradeoff is that the bill can only involve taxing and spending. the non-partisan senate parliamentarian elizabeth mcd mcdonough said the provision doesn't -- that is the relief
7:08 am
plan they are voting on today, it includes more stimulus checks for $1,400 and unemployment benefits will go up by $400 a week. there is also funding for reopening schools, rental and food assistance, vaccine distribution and aid for state and local governments. now, this is unlikely to garner much republican support. but if it does clear both chambers, democrats hope to get it to the president's desk by mid-march. anthony? >> nikole killion at the capitol, thanks. the president travels to texas this morning to see how millions are recovering from a deadly cold snap. texans shivered for days after snow and cold knocked out power and water and damaged homes across the state. dozens of people died. janet shamlian spoke to one family that's planning a funeral for a loved one killed by the cold while also rebuilding their own lives. janet, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, beyond the burst pipes and the water logged homes, a
7:09 am
devastating human toll, the deaths from hypothermia. at least 15 of those happened here in the houston area. we're now hearing the stories from heartbroken families talking about how their loved ones died. >> i miss his phone calls. i never thought i would. >> reporter: when isaac ibarra couldn't reach his brother, he went to his house where he found hem dressed in layers on the floor. his cause of death was hypothermia. he was mentally disabled but lived independently. >> i don't think i would have ever thought anybody dying of hypothermia in houston, texas. >> reporter: gilbert's death came as lawrence as isaac's home were damaged aburst pipes. they're now recovering from their own disasters and planning a funeral. gilbert's sister has filed suit against center point energy in ercot which manages the texas
7:10 am
power grid. >> reporter: what is your goal doing into this as you pursue legal action? >> our goal is for this not to happen to other people. our goal is for other people to be able to have power during not just winter storms, but also during floods if possibility, just everybody can stay safe and say, you know, well being in their own homes and be able to be safe. we hope that our government and local government can actually help make this never happen again. >> reporter: ercot says it hasn't reviewed the lawsuit. a spokesman for center point declined comment to a texas tv station. ercot is under fire for its handling of the crisis. texas lawmakers challenged executives thursday on their response to the outages. >> this is the largest train wreck in the history of deregulated electricity. >> reporter: ercot claims it has sovereign immunity which protects it from some lawsuits. the texas supreme court scheduled to decide that later this year. and as president biden and the
7:11 am
first lady spend part of the day in houston in addition to recovery efforts they will also spend time at the megasite sponsored by fema giving 6,000 vaccinations a day. >> all right, janet, thank you very much. coronavirus case numbers are dropping, that's good news. but the experts worry that the upcoming spring break travel will treat new superspreading events, just like the one last year that was not good news. florida is one of the top destinations for spring breakers, we know that. manuel bojorquez shohows how ofofficials inn south florida a prepararing for potentially ver large crowds. ♪ >> reporter: the sun and sand of south beach is synonymous with spring break but for thrill seekers who get out of control miami beach mayor dan gelber has a warning. >> if you come here to go crazy go somewhere else, you're going to be arrested. >> i get corona, i get corona, at the end of the day i'm not
7:12 am
going to let it stop me from partying. >> reporter: that helped siege south florida with covid last spring. the city has stepped up its police presence, banned open alcohol containers and set capacity limits on its most popular beaches but statewide rules prevent gelber from enforcing a mask mandate or capacity limits on most businesses. do you really think your restrictions for spring break will make a difference or is it trying to hold back a tidal wave with a dixie cup? >> we're not going to eliminate risk but manage it with the tools we have. >> reporter: one of the tools is a midnight curfew. >> we wanted to go out to bars and have a good time. it's miami, nobody wants to be done at 12:00 midnight. but i'm still having a blast. >> reporter: that's what businesses are hoping for, customers comfortable with the new normal. >> our goal is to keep you safe and give you a good time. >> reporter: so you're not letting things be the wild, wild
7:13 am
west out here. >> far from it. >> reporter: this is the general manager of the kifrpton surf hotel, he says hotels and restaurants depend on this season for profit but after the virus devastated the industry last year they're not looking for another lockdown. >> i believe that from what we have done people can be safe, but there is always an individual responsibility. this is a two-way street. >> reporter: it's a tricky balance to strike, joe's stone crab is a miami institution. >> we're in the people pleasing business, we're in the yes business, now we're in the proctoring kind of business. but the truth is, is we're in a pandemic. >> reporter: joe's has been in the family for over 100 years, he says when the shutdown happened last year he wasn't sure they'd make it but he says protecting the public is good business. >> i thought this was possible. i said who's going to walk into an empty restaurant. i thought they wanted the crowd.
7:14 am
i never thought it would take like it has and it's been very positive. this is a matter of life and death so we have to take the proper precautions. >> reporter: hotel bookings are already estimated to be 20% higher this march than they were last year before the virus took off. the mayor says he's definitely concerned about the potential for a superspreader event and not just concerned about what tourists could be taking home but what they could be bringing in and leaving here. tony? >> good point, thank you very much. a shocking new twist in a major gymnastics abuse investigation, a former u.s. olympics coach died by suicide hours after being charged with 24 felonies, including human trafficking and criminal sexual conduct. john geddert was the head coach of the u.s. women's gym that is ticket team, won a gold medal. he has tied to disgraced sports

7:16 am
and john was the one who tortured us in a way that it maked larry and his sexual abuse look like a walk in the park. >> reporter: geddert was expected to turn himself in on thursday. thursday. instead, authorities found his body at this michigan rest stop according to affiliate wlns. he died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound. the michigan attorney general's office called his death a tragic end to a tragic story for everyone involved. >> felt like true to john geddert form, i am above the law, i am a narcissist, and i'm getting the last word. >> reporter: klein and her attorney who has represented more than 200 nassar victims, want usa gymnastics and the u.s. olympic and paralympic committee to be held accountable for the abuse. >> these people let this happen with nassar and geddert for
7:17 am
money. >> reporter: in an interview with "60 minutes," olympian simone biles called for an invest investigation into usa gymnastics and the u.s. olympic committee to find out who knew what and when. >> we bring the medals, we do our part. you can't do your part in return? it's just like -- it's sickening. >> reporter: klein agrees and said she believes there is still abuse going on in usa gymnastics. >> what you can do is tell the truth. give us the ananswers. help us u understandd how thiss couldd in on his own
7:18 am
because they had no indication that he would harm himself, tony. >> all right. thank you very much. a lot that's upsetting here, but one thing that comes to mind is that the victims will not have an opportunity for that public justice and closure they got with nassar. >> and they're still looking for a lot more transparency from the gymnastics community than they're getting. >> most people in the public hadn't heard the name geddert, but they knew. it's sad -- >> came up in the testimony. >> it did. >> when victims came to the microphone to speak at nassar's trial, they often brought up the coach. >> that's when i heard it. no closure still hurts a lot. still ahead, prince harry reveals how a threat to his mental health helped prompt his family's decision to move to

7:31 am
asian-americans are considered hate crimes. still, advocates say the community is clearly being targeted. and they believe it is the result of anger and misinformation about covid-19. president biden recently called on the justice department to get more involved in tracking these attacks. but the action has been slow. ratanapadkee came to san francisco in 2000. >> he loved kids, he loved all his children. >> reporter: his daughter monthanus has livid in the city with her husband eric lawson for over a decade. >> never in my dream would i think this would happen to him or that he die here. >> reporter: the devoted grandfather was brutally assaulted just one month ago in broad daylight. . do you think this was a hate crime? >> when i see this, and then when he run across and kill him, and without take anything from

7:33 am
a trickle by the end of last year. while at least half of asian-americans continue to experience cases of direct racism, nearly one in five of which were physical assaults. in your video you said our community is being attacked and we are dying to be heard. >> literally people have lost their lives, and it shouldn't have taken up to this point for us to be outraged. i'm just fighting for us to be seen. it is the bare minimum. >> reporter: 29-year-old yunhan zhang knows what it's like to live in fear. attacked with pepper spray last fall. he says actions like president biden's executive memorandum condemning anti-asian racism are a start. but don't go nearly far enough. >> we have a very practical issue of people getting attacked on the street. we need to do a lot more than an

impeachment and growing calls to resign after police say he hit and killed a man with his car last september. jason ravnsborg was charged with three misdemeanors, he told the detectives he thought he hit a deer. after video of him being questioned was shared this week, a judge ordered that no more information on the criminal investigation be released. our lead national correspondent david begnaud has the story. >> quite frankly, wham. >> reporter: that's jason ravnsborg, this is one of his interrogation videos in which he appeared uncomfortable and looked like he had a hard time making eye contact with the investigators who wanted to know what happened. >> i'm thinking it is a beer at this point. >> ravnsborg is south dakota's top law enforcement officer. it was the night of september 12th, 2020, he was heading home from a republican fund-raiser, driving down this rural road in the central part of south dakota, when officials say he struck and killed 55-year-old
8:04 am
joseph boever, who was walking down the side of the road. ravnsborg called 911 that night. >> how can i help you? >> ally, i'm the attorney general. i hit something, in the middle of the road. >> one of the other things that we know, jason, is you weren't in the middle of the road. you were on the shoulder. >> ravnsborg claims he didn't realize he hit anyone until he returned to the scene the next day. but investigators point out inside of his damaged vehicle were the victim's glasses. >> they're joe's glasses. >> i wondered about that. >> that means his face came through your windshield. >> he's facing three charges, but they're all misdemeanors. before south dakota's governor kristi noem was ordered to remove the videos from the internet on thursday, this is what she had to say about her decision to release them. >> these interviews we specifically asked for the family's consent to do that. we will continue to ask the family what to release, what

8:13 am
netflix represent how the u.s. looks today? netflix is revealing the results first on "cbs this morning." ♪ the usc annenberg inclusion initiative studied more than 300 movies and scripted series released on netflix between 2018 and 2019. it found that representation on screen is still far short of reality. white men, for example, are only about 30% of the u.s. population, but they dominate on netflix, making up nearly 40% of the speaking characters. meanwhile, the u.s. latinx and asian populations are sizable in real life, 12% and 7% respectively, yet only a fraction of that on screen, 3% and 4%. and according to the study, there would need to be six times the proportion of lgbtq characters and five times the proportion of characters with disabilities for netflix to look like america. but there is good news including a 40% increase in main cast members who are black. in fact, they now make up 20%st
8:14 am
characters on netflix, 5% more than america's actual black population. and this increase is also reflected behind the scenes with more black directors, more black writers and creators overall. >> this is a company that takes this seriously, and our hope is that with this data and the innovative spirit that they have shown that they have and will continue to have that this can translate into more audiencejoi headquarters for an interview you are seeing first on "cbs this morning." good morning to you. so you guys asked for this study. you paid for it. now here you are talking about it. it's clearly important to you. why does it matter so much for netflix? >> look, i think it's important if we're going to be successful
8:15 am
storytellers around the world that the content on netflix reflects the world we're serving. i think that we knew early on that that would start with our employees, and that would roll into the folks that are hiring to tell the stories both in front of and behind the camera. we commissioned this study because we wanted to be held accountable for this. >> yeah. >> and i not trans-- i think transparency is the best way. >> are you concerned about backlash, particularly for latino and asian american actors? i was struck by how underrepresented they are on netflix shows. >> no, we were struck, as well. and it definitely shows we've got a lot of work to do. we're -- part of all this work is, you know, what comes next. and that big part of that is we've created a creative equity fund putting in $100 million to -- both to find the stories that are out there and help cultivate that talent to bring more of those stories to screen on netflix. >> to fix the problem, you've got to diagnose it. when you see these numbers, what
8:16 am
are the -- what is the explanation that you come up with? >> well, it's really been -- it's a lot about the folks who are telling the stories and our ability to connect with them and to find them. those stories that are out there. i think we've got great high points in there. the one thing that statistically that doesn't get captured in the study is impact and volume. it would show "selena" which are big hits around the world and in the united states, are able to reach a number -- reach an audience that show you the potential is there. so we just need to be able to find those storytellers and do a better job of cultivating that talent. >> kudos to netflix for even releasing the information because it's not show the company in the most flattering light. one of the reports found lack of diversity among the leadership. what's being done to change that? it says of 8% of netflix employees, 8% are black while nearly half are white. why do you think that's the
8:17 am
case? what's being done? >> well, a few years ago we started talking about there a lot more explicitly, gayle. we talked a lot about it being in a state of constant improvement. i think today the netflix employee base and the netflix leadership team are about half male, half female, and about half of our employees are from an underrepresented group. and while we do have a lot of work to do in each of the groups, the number, the particular number you talked about is twice what it was the year before. >> uh-huh. listen, i happen to know, many people know that you're married to a woman of color, good morning to nicole if she happens to be watching this morning. alexis ohanian said something interesting about his marriage to serena williams. that it has certainly given him a different perspective about race and about issues associated with it that she's never thought of before. is that something that you relate to? >> 100%, gayle. because of my relationship with
8:18 am
my wife, i'm witness to things that i would otherwise not be witness to. it's heightened my sensitivity certainly and certainly heightened my own biases which makes me a much more open and receptive to the idea that these biases exist. i think that as i've said, absolutely has had an enormous positive impact on me. and then through the work that you're seeing and the results you're seeing in the study. >> ted, there's that audience within the household there and you yourself as a viewer. i'm curious beyond that, the netflix audience, had you been hearing from them about a lack of representation? and do you think that will change going forward? >> no, you know, like i said, the study really doesn't capture so much of the impact and the careers launched and the stories told and the impact on the culture of these stories being told in a very loud way. so i do think that these are reflective of numbers. we do want the population on
8:19 am
screen to look like the population we're serving. i think we're getting better and better and our viewership proves that. >> have you heard of the show called "bridgerton"? it's really good. >> i have. yes, i have. >> it's really good. >> i would tell you -- what's exciting about "bridgerton" is the first conversations i had with shonda about "bridgerton," there was flow discussion about the casting -- no discussion about the casting. i think it's a great example that any community can be inclusive. any period can be represented inclusively, and this show just happens to be our biggest scripted original series launch ever. i do think it -- it stops people from saying, well, what about -- that couldn't be or why would i think about that. so it opens up the world of possibilities when you do it in a great way like that. >> ted, it's so important. if you can see it, you can dream it, you can do it. a point we make a lot on this show. glad to see netflix taking this initiative. thank you so much for being here. ahead, "48 hours"

congratulations to all of you. t.j., i want to start with you, you made some news earlier this month, you shared your truth in "time" magazine becoming the only openly gay artist signed to a major country record label. you got huge support from many of your friends. what has been your reaction to the outpouring of support you got? >> yeah, when you first say i made some news, i had a hunch that's what you were talking about. it has been amazing, honestly. i would say to encourage anyone else out there dealing with the same thing, it is really a really -- it is a hard thing to describe. it is a very difficult thing to go through and i even had a lot of support around me. but once i came out, i didn't understand the magnitude of how much people cared about me and loved about me and supported me. and honestly had i known that the whole time, i would have done it probably a long time ago and saved myself a lot of strife. so i just -- anyone out there, if you're dealing with that,
8:42 am
there is people that love you and people that support you. lots of them. so feel encouraged by that. >> so, t.j., did you discuss it with your brother or your family to say i'm going to do this or did you just -- what was your thought process in going there? because it has made a huge difference and i hope you feel the tsunami of love that has been heading your way ever since you spoke out. it is a good thing. >> that's a good way to put it. it has been a tsunami of love and almost to the point where it was hard for me to comprehend it for several days. and my close family and friends have known for a while, but i really at the same time i thought publicly i was always kind of in this stuck in second gear kind of phase or something. and honestly, for straight people out there, coming out is really awkward. it is an awkward thing to talk about. and unless it is just out of the blue, it is a really odd thing to bring up. and i want you -- obviously i work in entertainment, so i like lots of attention. i don't like --
8:43 am
>> different kind of attention. >> that kind of attention is weird, uncomfortable. to do that in the moment and do it in all one felled swoop, it was nice. i think for a lot of people they don't come out, like for me it was just, you know, i'm, like, when do you do it? when do you say it? for me, it was that moment of just taking a leap of faith and after i did it -- >> bravo. >> yeah. >> gkels kelsea, i had the oppoy to cover the acms for the show and you made it a point to champion up and coming young artists like tiara who has an amazing call -- song called "shut it down." where does that come from, that drive to showcase some of that new talent? >> i mean, a big part of my journey so far has been other female artists turning around and reaching out their hand and sharing their stage with me and that's been anyone from taylor
8:44 am
swift to shania to reba. and even though my platform is nowhere near theirs, i just -- it has been really life changing for me when they did that, so it is important for me to try to do the same any chance i get. there is a lot of great music and if we are able to showcase that and share that, then why not? >> i want to pick up on that family aspect of country music as well. there is a family among the performers, but a relationship between the performers and the audience which includes me, tens of millions of other americans. and, john, you -- there was a tweet here and i'm not sure why you're the one to respond to this first, but i think everybody should comment here. there is a tweet from the bands' account that says if an artist speaks their mind, and you, meaning the audience, threaten to dixie chick them, you can't say bleep about cancel culture. dixie chicks made a comment about the iraq war, had a huge fall off of country radio after that in early 2000s, there is a
8:45 am
lot going on in that statement, it touches a lot of the big issues on the table today, do you think artists have more to say but are afraid to say it because of this kind of cancel culture? >> yeah. look, i understand if you don't -- if you're an artist and you don't want to say anything, there is no disrespect, i get it, it is actually stupid, every time we do it, it is stupid, it doesn't make sense. but there is a pilot light burning inside of us at all times that wants to see a better world for everybody. and, you know, we do want to be more inclusive. that tweet wasn't -- most of our tweets have bleeps in them, so -- and i just wanted to let everyone know, there is a whole thing about cancel culture, but that was like the ultimate cancel culture. so many people jumped on board, there were, you know, steam rolling the records and burning them and burning piles and stuff like that and now it is, like, pretty overwhelmingly people
8:46 am
agree that the -- it was a horrible, horrible, horrible idea and they were at the forefront of saying that and if it wasn't for them saying that, perhaps we wouldn't even be this far on a long long that we are, our duty not just as artists but as people to speak up. if we're just john and t.j. from maryland in a bar talking to somebody, we would tell you how we feel regardless. and being artists isn't going to change that. >> i sure appreciate anybody who speaks up because that's the only thing that will lead to change. i'm excited about for the first time in acm awards history, four black artists are nominated in a single year. jamie allen, mickey guyton, just had a baby and john legend. do you think that maybe, guys, anybody can answer this, this is a sign of the times that country music will become more inclusive. that's not normally what it is known for, as an example of that, and now we have for first time four black artists in one year.
8:47 am
anybody? >> absolutely. absolutely. 100%. we're here on the ground in nashville in this community and it is a very inclusive place, it is a lot more inclusive than maybe it looks from the outside looking in. and i think there is a reflection of that. >> and i think you see that -- i've noticed since me coming out how many people have poured in to say, hey, i'm not talking about weirdos looking for a response, people just simply saying, thank you, like, i will always love country music, i never felt like i could relate to it until now and then you have clearly a lot of black people who love country music, but never really had that artist for them, and you can really see that now that these people aren't showing up to say, like, hey, i do country to kind of find my place, they're country singers, they're country writers, and i think the bigger that when artists like cane and
8:48 am
mickey and jimmie, they show up to the scene, the thing that country missed the whole time is it makes the fan base and the singer country infinitely larger. i love going out and to -- to playing shows and seeing a diverse crowd show up because they have people there they can relate to. and i think music really should just represent everybody, should speak for everyone at some point in time, not every artist has to do it for everybody, but there should be something there for everyone, yeah. >> i can't wait until you can get out and perform again on the stage. >> that's what we're all waiting for. i'm sure you are more than any of us. congratulations on your nominations. good luck, we wish you the best. thank you so much for being with us. you can watch more acm nominations on and check out the list of acm nominees we just announced on cbsthis and twitter and instagram. the awards will air sunday, april 18th, at 8:00, 7:00
