he -- rhetoric in this country. >> it's very painful to keep reporting this story over and over. it really does get to you. welcome back to "cbs this morning." here are three things that you should know this morning. brazil has elected a far-right congressman as its next president. he's jair bolsonaro. he's been called the frans trump. they condemn remarks they say disparage women, gays, and brazil's minorities. a new study suggests taking blood pressure readings at home are just as important as testing at the doctor's office. researchers say many patient's blood pressure spikes at clinics due to anxiety sometimes leading to misdiagnosis and overmedication. doctors say a blood pressure reading taken at home of 130 over 80 or higher can be used to

7:33 am
for the prevention of violence. nicholas thompson is here with the responsibility social media platforms have when it comes to hate speech. why didn't gab act earlier? >> they very much was founded on free speech. if it's allowed to say it, it it will be allowed on the platform. >> could gab radicalize it? is that something that we could discuss or assume? >> so that is the most important question. what happened is that all of the infrastructure underneath gab, so its hosting providers, the payments providers, they is all said yesterday, we're done, we're not going to protect you. that's why gab is knocked offline. in one way it's strange that hosting providers get to make the decision about a conversation that people talk. should they have that power over free speech? if you think of it as a free speesh questio
7:34 am
speech question, it's strange. but did gab radicalize this person, in turning him into the person to do what he did, then it's a different conclusion. >> the question about whether with you can be radicalized online, it's already been supported by our government. we believe that after 9/11 with people had access to isis supporters and those trying to radicalized isolated individuals. social media has agreed with this and worked to take these individuals down. why not when it comes to alt-right extremists online? >> it's very hard to identify what is extremism and what exactly is hate speech. words are very complicated in different context. and in the particular case of bowers, yes, it's very easy to identify what he was doing. he should have been found, it should have been taken down. but as a general principle, it's very difficult to identify what is hate speech and what is not and set firm policies on that. >> here, the adl found at least
7:35 am
4.2 million anti-semitic tweets were shared or reshared in english on twitter over a 12-month period. how do you stop -- >> nick, when you say hate speech is hard to identify online, how is that hard to identify hate speech? >> well, hate speech is complicated because you look for specific words and you look for the context in which those words that were said. so words that can be attacking one group when said by a member of that group can words that are attacking one group that can be affirmative. hat's ard to identify what is an actual hate statement, what is a lyric, what is something that problemositive. of the technical problems the atcial media has, it is the hardest. but when you look at bowers' you can see why they want to take off that whole social media online >> look at what he was seeing and talking about believing it was supported by jews and by
7:36 am
hype, he says, screw the optics, politing in. wo i feel like it's even worse than that, because i feel like not only does he get ecauselized, he gets affirmation. he posts, i'm going in because he wants people to like that. here is something wrong with that if that happens. a new 60 minute detail of >> the alleged abuse and cover-up in the diocese. resalo who leaked some abuse and a clergy cover-up. connecting the world inside, with the world outside. so you can move through both a little easier.

"60 minutes" spoke to members of
7:41 am
buffalo's community. they are under investigation for a scope of efforts to cover for priest abuse. >> his file contained an accusation that during the 1980s, he had sexual relations with a girl when she was just 15. the diocese knew about it, but a note in the file argued that marian aryanski should be excluded from the problem priests. it said, we did not remove him from ministry despite full knowledge of the case, so including him on list might require explanation. >> i remember thinking, if that's their rationale for leaving a priest off, then how can i abide by this? >> reporter: she was not alone. father bob ziliacs told us about the law, and abuse cases. he told us how it's handled.
7:42 am
>> i think by hypocrisy and lip service. yes, bob, i agree with you. then i would walk out of the office and nothing would happen. >> richard malone declined to be interviewed. he did say, the church is in the eye of a storm largely as a result of wrong decisions made decades ago, but our efforts have always remained steadfast. protect the children and remain supportive of the victims. paul sniyder is a chief deacon and they both join us at the table. people use the word hero, but you really are a true hero. i wonder if you could take us through your process on how you decided you were going to leak the documents to the press. how you felt about bishop malone and how you reached the conclusion that you did. >> i worked for him for three years, and i really enjoyed working with him. i cared very deeply about him.
7:43 am
i planned my whole life around his schedule. i didn't take vacations unless it worked for his schedule. so it was very painful for me to realize that what -- how the diocese was handling this issue didn't match what people thought. >> what were you seeing? >> i was seeing there were cases i had grave concerns about, and even back in march early on, i would express those concerns, and he would just try to placate me in response. >> what would he say? >> he would say, that's not your concern, he would say, this is being handled, he would say, don't worry about it. but to me i couldn't help it because to me the heroes in this story are the survivors. i spoke with them and desperately wanted to help them, and that's when i realized it's the power of the media and the journalist charlie with whom i worked, i saw that when he would e-mail about something, action would be taken. that's when i realized i would need to do that. i didn't want to and it was very painful, but i saw that it was necessary. >> in this way, speaking with
7:44 am
the press was incredibly helpful because it helped expose to the church what they were unwilling to address themselves. when you spoke to the bishops, did you hear from other people? >> i heard two things, first, that clergy were afraid to speak out. they were afraid of retribution by the bishop. they didn't know shavon was the whistle blower but felt she had brass and courage we should follow. but we're living at a time in buffalo where the type of activities that are taking place we thought occurred only 30 years ago, 40 years ago. these abuses are happening now. and for a person like shav is on to come forward and help us find truth, everybody should be supporting her. and those who doesn't must not be seeking the truth. >> why are the churches so afraid of the truth? >> silence, secrecy. too few power and too few men
7:45 am

8:48 am
work. i didn't want people to think he's not in the industry anymore, he's given up on acting. nothing could be farther from the truth. while i was at trader joe's i booked for television jobs. so i never stepped out and i didn't want to give that impression. >> how do you like being on ncis? >> it was great. they were so nice to me. immediate family, instant family. just like tyler perry's people in atlanta. they treated me like a king. >> do we dare think recurring role on ncia? >> i don't know. someone mentioned that but -- >> would you like that? >> yeah, that would be great, we love recurring. you know, i've been in this business a long time so, you know, you learn -- when you hear certain things you take it in, you hope for the best, and you kind of move on. you don't necessarily -- you don't assume anything's true that you hear. >> yes. >> but -- that would be nice and if not, that opportunity that one time, that show was great and, you know. >> are you still working at trader joe's? >> i'm not, actually, i'm on
