>> i'm not going -- you are fake news. >> hours after clashing with his first post election news conference chltds president-elect trump took to twitterquote, a couple of fake news organizations were there. he was admitting to unverified reports that marco rubio has compromising information on him first reported by cnn and buzzfeed a few days ago. >> i think it was disgraceful that the intelligence agencies allowed any information to be so false and fake out. >> late yesterday the outgoing director of national intelligence james clapper assured them they were not behind the revelation and called the leaks, quote, extremely corrosive and damaging to national security. for the first time, yesterday, he admitted russia was behind several election-related cyber
attacks. >> hacking is bad and it shouldn't be done, but look at the things that hillary clinton got the questions to the debate and didn't report it? that's a horrible thing. >> mr. trump also discussed his business dealings and tells us he will not place them in a blind trust. instead his sons will run it but promised no new international deals. it was called wholly inadequate. >> thank you so much. as we reported during his news conference, mr. trump displaced his usual displeasure with the press. cbs political news director scott pelley said his tactics are different. >> mr. trump is rewriting the relationship with the press. >> he is.
you know, all presidents do this. he's try dog it by intimidation to soften up the stories about him but he's also seeking to delegitimize the press. he's not complaining about a specific story. he's saying there's battle between himself and the press and that's an attempt to basically take the value away from what the press does. >> let's have a look at something else he said in the news conference today. >> don't be rude. don't be rude. >> can you give us a question. >> don't be rude. i'm not going to give you a question. you are fake news. >> sir, can you. >> go ahead. you know, i've about been hearing more and more about fake news and people who go and say all sorts of things. but i will tell you some of the media outlets deal with the fake news more so than anybody. i can name them, but i won't bother. >> so does donald trump need the press the way other presidents do? >> usually presidents in their attempts to control the press fail because they ultimately
need the press to get their message out. he has twitter. he also has a following that believes the press is more apt to go out and get mr. trump. but his ratings is at 43%. to speak to the rest of the country, he needs the validation of the press to get his message across from something that's not just his own mouth and that's usually where it breaks down for presidents who try to go after the press. >> president-elect trump praised news agencies that did not go after him or put out information that was not supported. the budget passed 51%-48%. a vote on legislation to repeal parts of obamacare could come next month. the house is expected to vote on the measure friday. and mr. trump's nominee for state rex tillerson faces more

tillerson said the two nations will probably never be friends. >> our value systems are starkly different. >> tillerson also encountered some rough sailing when republican chairman bob corker asked about lobbying on sagss on russia after it invaded crimea. >> i never lobbied against the sanctions. to my knowledge exxon mow big never lobbied against the sanctions. >> but corker said this. >> i think you called me during this time. >> and menendez said he had evidence he was mistaken. >> i have four lobbying reports totally $4 million as required by the lobbying disclosure act that lists exxonmobil's activities on four pieces of legislation authorizing sanctions. >> senator menendez also asked tillerson if he and
president-elect trump have even talked about trump yet. tillerson said no, to which m menendez said, that's pretty amazing. chip reid, the cbs news, the capitol hill. jeff sessions is expected to easily win the confirmation saz attorney general. yesterday senator cory booker spoke against session's nomination. >> i'm breaking with senator tradition. he has not demonstrated a commitment, to aggressively pursue the congressional mandate of civil rights, equal rights, and justice for all of our citizens. >> in 1986 sessions was rejected for a federal judgeship over accusations over racial charge, charges he vehemently denies. elaine is married to senate
