secretary of state, former exxon mobil ceo rex tillerson. >> i am very concerned about someone who took a friendship award from vladimir putin, who is a butcher. and actually what vladimir putin is, he's a kgb agent. that's all. he wants to restore the russian empire. >> you cannot support tillerson's nomination? >> i have concerns and i've had several conversations with him, and he has made a strong case that his job as the -- one of the world's largest corporations is very different from that of our secretary of state. and, frankly, i have a tendency to believe him.
obviously, he's been a great success in business. but i really would like to see more of this issue of what america stands for. >> your mind's not made up then? >> no. >> what are your concerns for the trump administration going forward? >> primarily russia right now. he continues to say things about how we can improve things with russia and putin's not so bad, those kinds of things. look, i've watched three presidents, scott. all came to the presidency saying, "we'll have a new arrangement with russia." vladimir putin understands strength, and we have to show him strength and that the price for him to pay for further aggression exceeds whatever gains he may make. that's how we won the cold war. >> john mccain. in our poll, americans are evenly split on president-elect
trump's cabinet picks. about 39% approve, 40% disapprove. nancy cordes reports some of the nominees are getting a tough grilling. >> we're a compassionate society. >> no, we are not a compassionate society. >> reporter: democrats interrogated two of the nominees so intensely today, that one of them briefly mistook the hearing room for a courtroom. >> are you aware of those? >> yes, your honor-- yes, senator. >> reporter: oklahoma attorney general scott pruitt was grilled about the 14 lawsuits he filed against the agency he now wants to lead, the epa. >> do you acknowledge you presented a private oil company's position rather than a position developed by the people of oklahoma? >> senator, with respect, i disagree. the efforts that i took as attorney general were representing the interests of the state of oklahoma. >> earlier you said-- >> there was a concern. >> no, no, excuse me, i'm asking the questions. >> reporter: his hearing came on the same day that government scientists declared 2016 the hottest year on record. >> do you agree that global
warming is a hoax? >> i do not, senator. >> reporter: but he would not concede that man is primarily to blame. >> this paradigm that we live within today that if you're pro energy you're anti-environment, if you're pro environment you're anti-energy is i think is a false narrative. >> reporter: at the other end of a crowded hallway, democrats were coming down hard on georgia congressman tom price. >> i am very frightened about what you are going to do. >> reporter: as secretary of health and human services, price would implement the gop's currently unformed replacement for obamacare. >> i believe and i look forward to working with you to make sure every single american has access to the highest care possible. >> has "access to" does not mean that they are guaranteed health care. i have access to buying a $10 million home. i don't have the money to do that. >> reporter: mr. trump's pick for secretary of defense became the first nominee today to get a "yes" vote from his committee
and it now heads to the full senate. democrats and republicans currently negotiating, scott, over how many cabinet member also be confirmed on inauguration day. >> nancy cordes for us on capitol hill. the people who put mr. trump in office, of course, will be expecting results, and anna werner has been talking to some of them in kannapolis, north carolina. >> i never knew what it was not like for the city to revolve around a textile mill. and then in one day, it's gone. >> reporter: pastor dean hunter remembers the day 14 years ago when the largest sheet and towel manufacturer in the world shut down. it was the end of an era, more than 4,000 jobs vanished, along with the mill itself. >> there's a lot of people that never really emotionally recovered from that. >> i miss them days. >> reporter: like dan johnson. he worked at the mill over 30 years. so when he and his wife, vicki, heard donald trump say this --
>> we're living through the greatest jobs theft in the history of the world. >> reporter: -- it resonated. >> i just felt like he was going to help us. >> well, as long as he's done what he said he would do, like him, i would be very happy. >> reporter: already, they think they've seen progress in the trump transition. >> the man hasn't even got in office yet, and he's already saved some jobs. >> reporter: that impressed you? >> that impressed me. i think he's doing good. i like a lot of his cabinet picks. >> reporter: dean hunter believes mr. trump will act quickly one of his top priorities, appointing a conservative supreme court justice. but as for the man himself -- you weren't sure? >> no. >> reporter: are you more sure now? >> i'm more sure now than i was a year ago. if it comes out that he has done or not done some things that he has said he hasn't or has, that's a cause for concern. >> we want to see something different.
>> reporter: former democrat, tony hall, says he heard too many promises that didn't turn into action from both parties. >> he may end up being a great president. he may end up being a lousy president. what do you have to lose? he just may do something. >> reporter: you're rolling the dice. >> we're rolling the dice. i'm not a betting man, but i guess i'm a betting man on this one. >> reporter: the question for those here: will the bet pay off? anna werner, cbs news, kannapolis, north carolina. in houston, about a half foot of rain fell turning roads into rivers. dozens were rescued from cars. severe thunderstorms also hit along the 80-mile stretch of hill country from san antonio to austin. coming up next, a band battles a trademark many consider racist. and later, we'll hear from a young woman kidnapped at birth.
it says you apply the blue one ok, letto me. this. here? no. have a little fun together, or a lot. k-y yours and mine. two sensations that work together, so you can play together. i checked, everything's there... wait a minute... hey... hold on, i can explain. you better have a good answer... switch to geico and you could save a ton of money on your car insurance. why didn't you say so in the first place? i thought you's was wearing a wire. haha, what? why would i wear a wire? geico.
today a rock band took the stage at the supreme court, hoping to trademark its name. jan crawford takes a listen. ♪ >> reporter: the slants call their music "chinatown dance rock." ♪ we sing for japanese and the chinese ♪ >> reporter: with a name founder simon tam says is a key part of the message. >> i was ridiculed as a kid for having slanted eyes. now it's -- i'm saying it's
something that i can be proud of. it's not something to be ashamed of. >> reporter: the trademark office denied the slant's application saying its name disparages asian americans. at the supreme court, tam said that violates his first amendment rights. >> if the government truly cared about fighting racist messages, they would have canceled the registrations for numerous white supremacist groups before they even approached our case. >> reporter: the government has awarded trademarks to groups like the ku klux klan, as well as other bands that refer to race in their name, like nwa, and uncle kracker. ♪ follow me, everything is all right ♪ >> reporter: in court, some of the justices clearly were troubled. justice ruth bader ginsburg asked, "does it not count at all that everyone knows that the slants is using this term not at all to disparage but simply to describe?" but they also seemed concerned about a broad ruling. justice elena kagan said since the government registers and publishes trademarks, that may "give the government greater
leeway" to regulate them. for the slants, it's the principle. ♪ never gonna settle, never gonna settle, no ♪ >> reporter: now, the case could have far-reaching implications. the government, for example, has canceled the trademark of the washington redskins, saying that name is also disparaging. but, scott, that case on hold while the court considers the slants. >> jan crawford on the steps of the court. thanks. coming up, a young woman kidnapped at birth shares her story. (coughs) cough doesn't sound so good. take mucinex dm. i'll text you in 4 hours when your cough returns. one pill lasts 12 hours, so... looks like i'm good all night! some cough medicines only last 4 hours. but just one mucinex lasts 12 hours. let's end this.
have a little fun together, or a lot. k-y yours and mine. two sensations that work together, so you can play together. 18 years ago, a woman stole a newborn from a florida hospital and raised her as her own in south carolina. well, today, the victim, now a young woman, shared with our manuel bojorquez her story of forgiveness. >> reporter: how would you describe what you've been through? >> just overwhelming. >> reporter: growing up, alexis manigo had no idea the woman who raised her, gloria williams, would be arrested for allegedly dressing up as a nurse and kidnapping her from the hospital 18 years ago. >> i have no hatred for her. i love her. >> reporter: how are you so easily able to forgive her? >> when you have lived the life i have, when you have been loved the way i have, you'll understand why.
>> miss williams, you have been charged with kidnapping. >> reporter: that was clear when she saw williams at a court hearing and sobbed. >> it was hard. it was very hard. >> reporter: today in jacksonville, a judge denied williams bond. authorities say her story began to unravel when some of alexis' documents appeared to be fake. the parents who last saw her as newborn kamiyah mobley, shanara mobley, and craig aiken, reunited with her this weekend. she assured them that despite how her life began and that the person she calls mother is behind bars, the last 18 years have been good ones. >> now i'm thinking of all the memories we did. that's what's keeping me going with her, you know. >> reporter: what about the memories your biological parents didn't have, though? >> i'm definitely remorseful for that. and i plan on giving them memories from here on out. >> reporter: the investigation is ongoing, and, scott, according to police, a witness said alexis may have started to learn the truth more than a year ago. >> manuel bojorquez.
in our poll, 62% of americans are telling president obama "well done." and at his final news conference today, he told them don't worry. >> i believe in the american people. i believe that people are more good than bad. i believe tragic things happen. i think there's evil in the world, but i think that at the end of the day, if we work hard and if we're true to those things in us that feel true and feel right, that the world gets a little better each time. it is true that behind closed doors i curse more than i do publicly. [ laughter ] and sometimes i get mad and frustrated, like everybody else does.
but at my core, i think we're going to be okay. >> when he first took office, mr. obama said, "i didn't come here for small steps. i came to provide sweeping change." well, today, with eight years of experience, he said if we're true to the things that feel right, the world gets a little bit better, and that's what this presidency has been about. presidents always come to washington to change history, but history always changes them. that's the "overnight news" for this thursday. for some of you the news continues. for others, check back with us a little bit later for the morning news, and be sure not to miss "cbs this morning" from the national mall here in washington. until then, i'm scott pelley.
this is the "cbs overnight news." >> welcome to the "overnight news." i'm michelle iller. president obama went before the white house press corps for the final news conference of his administration. he thanked the reporters saying having them in the building "has made this place work better." president-elect trump has mentioned that he might kick the press corps out of the white house. margaret brennan asked the president about his controversial decision to commute the sentence of convicted leaker chelsea manning. >> first of all, let's be clear that chelsea manning has served a tough prison sentence. so the notion that the average person who was thinking about
disclosing vital classified information would think that it goes unpunished, i don't think would get that impression from the sentence that chelsea manning has served. it was a busy day on capitol hill where confirmation hearings continued for president-elect trump's cabinet nominees. the first to sail through the process was marine general james mattis, mr. trump's choice for defense secretary. the armed services committee voted 26-1 in favor. two others did not have it so easy. nancy cordes has more. >> we're a compassionate society. >> no, we're not. >> reporter: democrats interrogated two of the nominees so intensely today, that one one of them briefly mistook the hearing room for a courtroom. >> are you aware of those? >> yes, your honor-- yes, senator. >> reporter: oklahoma attorney general scott pruitt was grilled about the 14 lawsuits he filed
against the agency he now wants to lead, the epa. >> do you acknowledge you presented a private oil company's position rather than a position developed by the people of oklahoma? >> senator, with respect, i disagree. the efforts that i took as attorney general were representing the interests of the state of oklahoma. >> earlier you said-- >> there was a concern. >> no, no, excuse me, i'm asking the questions. >> reporter: his hearing came on the same day that government scientists declared 2016 the hottest year on record. >> do you agree that global warming is a hoax? >> i do not, senator. >> reporter: but he would not concede that man is primarily to blame. >> this paradigm that we live within today that if you're pro energy you're anti-environment, if you're pro environment you're anti-energy is i think is a false narrative. >> reporter: at the other end of a crowded hallway, democrats were coming down hard on georgia congressman tom price. >> i am very frightened about what you are going to do. >> reporter: as secretary of health and human services, price would implement the gop's
currently unformed replacement for obamacare. >> i believe and look forward to working with you to make sure every single american has access to the highest quality care and coverage that is possible. >> has "access to" does not mean that they are guaranteed health care. i have access to buying a $10 million home. i don't have the money to do that. former president george h.w. bush, as well as his wife barbara, are hospitalized this morning in houston. omar villafranca has the latest. >> reporter: today, president obama offered the bushes his best wishes at his final press conference. >> they have been a constant source of friendship and support and good counsel for me and michelle over the years. they are as fine a couple as we know. >> reporter: just this past saturday, mr. bush was treated for shortness of breath. despite his health issues, the 92-year-old has remained active.
er yerl this month, he was spotted at an nfl game in houston. but one place he will not be is at the upcoming inauguration. he wrote a letter to president-elect donald trump explaining why. it read in part, my doctor says if i sit outside in january, it will likely put me six feet under. same for barbara. i wish you the very best. president-elect trump tweeted his thoughts saying -- >> reporter: the former first lady will remain in the hospital for observation. former president george bush their son, will be at the inauguration. the u.s. supreme court heard arguments concerning an asian-american rock band called the slants. the slants tried to trademark their name, but the trademark office refused, saying the term is derogatory. jan crawford spoke with the band about the controversy. >> reporter: in 2006, simon tam
formed this all-asian rock band hoping to inspire and encourage young asian-americans he thought that were underrepresented in the entertainment industry. and he thought the band's name "the slants," was something to be proud of. but the government disagreed. they call their music "chinatown dance rock." ♪ and they've traveled the world, reaching out to asian-american communities, even entertaining u.s. troops overseas. but to the patent and trademark office, their name is racist. >> almost a quarter of my life has been spent in court over this name because i decided to name a band called the slants. >> reporter: 25-year-old simon tam founded the band in 2006. the name was a key part of the band's message. ♪ >> we have an outdated, obscure racial slur that he want to turn
into something powerful. i was ridiculed as a kid for having slanted eyes. now i'm saying it's something i can be proud of. not something to be ashamed of. >> to the trademark office, you were what? >> to the trad mark office, we're racists. >> reporter: the government refused to give tam a trademark and argues nothing in the first amendment requires congress to encourage the use of racial slurs. >> there are thousands of gross trademarks out there, and no one thinks the government is associating with or endorsing those vulgar, kind of gross, sometimes silly trademarks. >> reporter: first amendment lawyer megan brown points to other bands that refer to race in their names whose trademarks have been approved. like nwa and uncle cracker. ♪ follow me, everything is all right ♪ as proof the government's definition of what may be offensive is inconsistent. >> lots of people are uncomfortable with the government selectively and subjectively trying to make
these judgment calls about what the legal standard is and who is going to be offended and how offended. >> reporter: the case could have far reaching implications. using the same reasoning in 2014, the government canceled trademark protection for the washington redskins. ♪ never going to settle, never going to settle ♪ >> reporter: for tam and the slants, it's now up to the supreme court. >> i'm hoping that after wednesday, we can go back to being a band. not the band that's fighting the supreme court or the band that's been fighting the trademark office, but the band who releases music and can communicate a positive message for their community. ♪ we sing from the heart >> reporter: tam said if they lose here at the supreme court, the band is not going to change its name. but without a trademark, it's almost impossible to get a record deal or merchandising agreements or even to protect the band from impostors. the "cbs overnight news" will be right back.

at his only news conference after the election, president-elect donald trump refused to take a question from cnn. he pointed to the network's reporter and said "you are fake news." well, fake news is not new to the american political scene. here's our senior correspondent ted koppel. >> folks, i've been told this by high-up folks, obama and hillary both smell like sulfur. >> reporter: there's nothing new about using media to commit political slander. 1796, an editorial accused thomas jefferson of cowardess, of running away from british troops. the unidentified author -- the current toast of broadway. >> alexander hamilton.
>> our founding fathers could sling mud with the worst of them. it's not the nastiness that's new, it's the delivery systems. a radio talk show host by the name alex jones can be heard nationwide spreading the manure that fertilizes conspiracy theories all over the internet. >> pizzagate, as it's called, is a rabbit hole that is horrifying to go down. >> reporter: the charge that hillary clinton and her campaign manager, john podesta, were running a child pornography ring out of the basement of a washington pizza restaurant did not, as best we can tell, originate with jones. the accuser remains anonymous. but that story had real consequences. >> 28-year-old edgar welch, after driving from north carolina, entered the pizzaria and fired shots from a semiautomatic rifle. no one was hurt. he told police he came to rescue child victims. >> reporter: for weeks, people have been accusing others of
smuggling children from an underground tunnel from this bookstore to the pizza restaurant. >> are the threats over? no, they're not. they continue online and on the phone. >> i really call it the weaponization of social media and the internet. what it's entitling or enabling people to do is to take completely false information, make up whatever they want with no accountability. >> reporter: so what do you do? you call the police. the fbi. >> turns out there's quite a high bar that's required for police and the fbi to take action. thanks to our first amendment protections. >> has that made you rethink whether the first amendment needs some modifications, given the age in which we live? >> it certainly has. my father actually lost a job in defense of the first amendment back in the mccarthy era. so i am probably more than most people pretty sensitive to that
issue. however, we live in a different world now, and it's a brave, new world that we have not figured out. the purveyors of this stuff have been able to run rampant and do damage fairly freely, with no accountability. >> reporter: hold on, though. we love the first amendment, free speech, the right to criticize our leaders. protection among other things for our cartoonists, comedians, satirists. >> testing, testing. jina, jina. >> reporter: until recently, the targets of satire were obliged to grit their teeth, grin, and bear it. but the shape of the battlefield has changed. >> google, what is isis? >> reporter: many more people received donald trump's tweet, reacting to the alec baldwin impression, than those who saw the original skit on nbc. >> ted, you've been doing this for a million years.
the average american could never have gotten to you and said hey ted, you missed this point. >> reporter: glenn beck has among the most popular radio shows in the nation. >> now there's parody on social media. the downside is, there is no gatekeeper. and there's not a real feeling of personal responsibility online. >> reporter: in his time, beck promoted some of the wildest right wing conspiracy theories out there. >> in the president's life, as you will see, is pure fiction. >> reporter: this is the new, revised glenn beck. >> since really in the last year, and since the election, i've been to as many sources as i can to beg the media to learn from my mistakes. you know, sometimes you have a road to damascus moment. i've had my road to damascus moment, and if we don't change this, if we can't find our way to each other, it's only going to get worse.
>> reporter: which puts glenn beck on roughly the same page as pope francis. his holiness compared media's obsession with scandal and ugly things to the sickness of copafala. if you're just finishing breakfast, just look it up later. it's nasty. it can, however, be profitable. margaret sullivan is media correspondent for "the washington post." >> there is now an industry out there of people who are producing things that are untrue and that are highly shareable, which is the magic word. it's engagement. it's all about engagement. if you can get things shared, you may be able to make money from it. >> how does it work, so that a fraction of a penny for every hit that you get? >> yes, yes. buzzfeed reported this, that there was a group of teenagers in macedonia who were doing nothing but coming up with fake news stories.
they set up their own sites and they register to attract advertising through facebook. they put these stories out there, made up to be wrong. but sounded believable enough that people started sharing them. and they could make pretty good money for teens in macedonia. >> reporter: just this week, facebook implemented a new policy that will make it more difficult for the purveyors of fake news to get paid. but fake news is far from being the greatest threat. so one of your correspondents comes to the editorial board of "the washington post" and says, here's this story, which was leaked by the russians to wikileaks and wikileaks has just leaked it to us. and we've checked on it and it turns out to be true. what do you do with that? >> well, we actually faced that choice throughout the past few
months. >> exactly. so if it's true, you run it. >> well, if it's news worthy. >> reporter: josh earnest is white house press secretary. >> what the russians did in the context of the election was to take information that was stored privately, hack into it, and release it selectively over the course of many, many days in an e. to try to politically damage or at least erode confidence in our political system in a way that did politically damage one candidate for president. >> the russians have been engaged in trying to delegitimize one candidate, aid another candidate, undermine the electoral process, that comes dangerously close to a belligerent act, doesn't it? >> obviously, it's an unwelcome one. that's why you've seen such a robust response from the u.s. government. >> well, i haven't seen a robust response. >> you've seen a robust response in terms of basically making
clear publicly and in private -- >> i've heard a lot of talk. has there been any response? a robust response? >> well, talk matters. what also matters -- >> it only matters in you follow it up with action. >> reporter: and before leaving on vacation, president obama hinted broadly that action was either forthcoming or had already been taken. the president also urged us to look in the mirror. >> if fake news that's being released by some foreign government is almost identical to reports that are being issued through partisan news venues, then it's not surprising that that foreign propaganda will have a greater effect. >> is this an area where the

"60 minutes" profiled him in 1977. >> he said, my fellow chiefs and i would like the white man to know the red man -- >> this is crazy horse's arm. >> reporter: his daughter monique oversees the work. >> you're still going seven decades later.
>> we are, yeah, we are. >> why is it taking so long? >> that's a big mountain. that's big mountain. >> reporter: crazy horse's face was completed in the '90s. crews are now working to shape the horse's head and crazy horse's outstretched hand. in some spots, crews have just a few feet of rock left to remove. finishing just the hand will take years. >> drilling a lot of holes and take out one block at a time. >> reporter: caleb is the third generation of his family to work on the project. >> it is hard to see the changes from a mile away down there. since the time i started, this hand area has changed immensely. >> everyone wants to know when is this going to be finished? >> that's a hard question to answer. i don't have an exact day. but if you love something and you get to work on it the rest of your life, that is an honor. >> reporter: native americans say whenever it's done, it will provide a valuable education and ensure crazy horse's place in history. mark albert in the black hills of south dakota. ng pc-17 f1
