"Considered from NPR News. I'm Ari Shapiro and Mary Louise Kelly has enough changed in the three years since the Harvey Weinstein story broke and the me to movement took off. A new report finds that for Hollywood and the entertainment business, the answer is no. The Hollywood Commission, a nonprofit that works to eradicate harassment and discrimination in the industry. Surveyed entertainment workers nationwide and found many are staying silent because they fear retaliation. Or they don't believe people in positions of power will be held to account. The chair of the commission is Anita Hill, who, of course, has fought her own battles over getting allegations of sexual harassment taken seriously. She accused now Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas of harassment and testified. Under oath back in 1991. Professor Hill joins us now welcome back to all things considered. I'm glad to speak with you again. I'm happy to be here. Tell me what surprised you in the survey results Well, the standout data was the data on accountability. We ask people Do you think that a person of higher rank Who was found to have our asked a person of lower rank would be held accountable and what we found is that 64% of the people we surveyed said that in fact, that person would not be held accountable. I suppose that's the thing that surprised me. I mean, on the one hand, it's not surprising that we're dealing with such deeply entrenched culture and history here. On the other hand, it's been three years of me, too, in the spotlight, and many powerful men have been held to account. You're you're absolutely right. We've seen some very high profile cases. And what we want to make sure is that it doesn't stop with just a few high profile cases. We know that they are problems throughout. Workplaces, and we want to make sure that everybody, whatever their position is Can count on being heard. So that's one piece of this. The other is persuading people who believe they're being harassed, have been harassed that they have a safe path to come forward and report it. I remember interviewing you, Professor Hill. Always. Almost exactly. Two years ago, September 2018 on we were talking because it was in the middle of the confirmation battle over Brett Kavanaugh. And we talked about the the personal cost of choosing to come forward. What do you say to someone who's weighing whether to do so or not? Well, you're absolutely right. There are personal cost. But even when people are willing to take the risk, there are other things that they're considering. People don't come forward because they think they won't be taken seriously. Unfortunately, the Cavanagh hearing really gave the impression that the Senate Judiciary Committee Did not take Christine Bozzi. Ford's claim seriously, and people see that example and becomes, you know what they think will happen to them.

"Mike I'm I want to talk about race? They think it's really important that we do and and some of the the most powerful sequences in your film really do deal with race directly with both candidates and one of the the The biggest moments that really strikes will strike our audience I think is how know Donald Trump is really built his career both as a businessman and as a politician by SBC now, embracing and at times even stoking racial tensions of course, we saw that in the central park five incident but. Of course Biden's record on racism perfect either and You look in the film at the Anita Hill moment and those hearings and common city made about Obama when he was running for president in two thousand eight, can you talk about both candidates both do have these moments and how they both handle them quite differently well yeah I mean like like so many things about Trumpet Biden as we've discussed the the differences on the issue of racer just profound as you say rainy, the first public moment for trump with raises the central park? Five. Trump took out full page ads and four City newspaper millionaire businessman Donald Trump for the reinstatement of the State's death penalty. Up His neighbor ads can to the city's racial politics. Obviously. Looking for an issue that will help him get into. Politics I guess it's like an early early venture to test the waters and he finds. By coming out. So strongly against those innocent young men, eventually they'll be proven innocent and saying they should be executed is. Sparks a tremendous interest among people in the city of New York where racial tensions were running very high. Basically a very strong in vocal. They are saying, bring back law and order to better believe that I hate the people that took this girl and raped her brutally you better believe in. And it's more than anger it's hatred and. That's caused a more positive stance I've had fifteen thousand, fifteen thousand letters in the last week and a half. I don't know A. Decade later you information has blown the shares in New York City courtroom today here in south. They apparently got the wrong guy the central park five were released from prison. I think he learned something from that that this is a an issue that divides that can he can Some political mileage out of it he carries it with him all the way through his campaign we even became used to you know Mexicans are rapists the racially driven travel ban the immigration policies. His remarks about the protests this year, they all connect up and have deep roots. In his personal life back to Biden in nine hundred, seventy, two when he runs he cashes in on a long standing relationships he's had for ten years in the. Black community in Wilmington many of them not about issues. About about kind of personal relationships, he's formed, but he's obviously in some way. To be served crass about it he's putting them in the bank for. A future political run because he's thinking politics for a long time in his life in the black vote does come out for him in and gets him elected to the United States Senate in surprise victory. Contrary to predictions in Delaware two-term. Republican Taylor. Swift by twenty, nine year old Joe's pipe. Being the political. There is no way in the world it could be. Through the next decades despite his relationship with many black people at his belief that he's he's somehow connected to them. When he got to the senators young men destroyed and devastated personally by the death of his wife he is a folded into the heart of the Senate by. Segregationist Strom Thurmond. And others white. Racists. Who Biden is in concert with a lot of the time he learned to work with them. He's on the wrong side of the crime. Bill. at a lot of. Black people are. The victims of that crime bill and find themselves. In. Prison in much larger numbers than others expected. You do have what happens with Clarence Thomas and Anita Hill the US Supreme? Court. To proclaim the Senate that he has no position at all political explosion on Capitol Hill Clarence Thomas ran into trouble today questions or growing again over George of a second woman who once worked for Thomas, sports will come to order. Welcome, Professor Hill. Can you tell the committee? What was the most embarrassing? Of all the incidences that you have alleged. I think the one that was the most embarrassing. was his discussion of. Of. Pornography where he tries to serve straddle be in the middle be okay with. Thomas even though he doesn't vote for him and be okay with Anita Hill in the in the balances white man in the Senate plays to type he he issues that gaff about Barack Obama in has to apologize and seek forgiveness. SORTA. American. Who is articulate and bright? And Clean Bison guys in the end. Joe Receives What's known as the Obama Halo, which is kind of pass on Anita Hill and the gaff and other things. The Crime Bill it allows Jota rely upon the black vote in south, Carolina during the primary and in and win and eventually win the nomination in short order. So, so both men have differed relationships to what is probably the single most important issue America faces now, which is this racial reckoning. Both men stand in very different places a about that on that issue and and that is something that when people vote is a strong indicator of what these men will do, it will be a different thing on the dimension of race, a Biden versus trump. You know one of the most striking parts of the film is just this idea of you know, of course, both of these candidates have frame. This election is a turning point in our country rightly. And folks as I said, it's bigger than any candidate bigger ninety party. We're in the battle for the soul, the nation this is worse than anything anyone's ever seen. And you know what? That would be true for the country. The whole country would go to hell you asked almost all of your interviewees, what is the choice between these two men and what's really on the ballot this time around and what what's. Sort of range of what you heard. I. I really think everybody thinks this is the election of the.

"Was instrumental in establishing gender equality in the workplace is a legal concept. She brought that experience with her when President Bill Clinton nominated her to the high court in 1993. This was just two years after President George H. W. Bush nominated Clarence Thomas to become an associate justice. His confirmation hearings in 1991 captivated the nation after allegations surfaced that Thomas had sexually harassed a lawyer who had worked for him at a previous job. That lawyer was Anita Hill, and she is now a professor of social policy law and women's studies at BRANDEIS University in Massachusetts, and she is with us now. Professor Hill. Thank you so much for being with us on this sad day. Thank you for having me. In her later years, Justice Ginsburg became a cultural figure. You know, it's interesting. You know, we've been hearing from women of all ages, about what she meant to them in the fight for equality under the law and part of that, if I include speaking out against sexual harassment in the workplace, as you did during those hearings in 1991 Did Ruth get better? Ginsberg's work advanced the law in that area. I think of her contributions as really helping us to find and a very inclusive way. What equality was going to mean what it would look like if we ultimately get to it. And, of course, being inclusive. Her impact did have Very much to do with the issues of gender violence, including sexual harassment and sexual assault in the workplace. And, of course, she was perhaps best known for her sharp Descents. And of course, you testified against the nomination of Clarence Thomas. You were called to testify during those hearings. He was then confirmed anyway. So in a sense, you're both associated with arguments That didn't win the day in that moment, And yet you're both cultural figures. I feel comfortable in saying who continue to inspire it many people I just wonder why you think that isthe The fact that she continued to advocate On behalf of equality, even though she was in the minority. I think that is what is inspiring a lot of people and I give you a prime example of that is in the Ledbetter case of involving equal pay for women when the majority ruled in favor of the tire company that was paying Lily Ledbetter less money. She wrote a defense red that is sad. And urged Congress to correct the court's decision. And that actually happened in about a year now half after she read her dissent from the bench. I think with action like that. That really captured our imagination and said that even win you may seem to be down and your position may seem to be lost. There are ways that you can move on to win. So so is that the legacy? You think that she will leave? How would you describe it? I think her legacy so large, you know, one of the things that Concerns me most is that we will no longer have a pioneer in the civil rights movement or women's rights movement on the court. And I think we are losing something. Now that we've lost that voice. You know, we had it with Thurgood Marshall, and we've had it with Ruth Bader Ginsburg. And I hope that somehow we can regain that. That isn't even help. She's a professor at BRANDEIS University in Waltham, Massachusetts. Professor Hill. Thank you so much for speaking with us today. Thank you. Mrs W. N. Y C 93.9 FM and AM 20 and will continue with all things considered tribute to Justice Ginsberg in just a minute. New Yorkers are remembering Ruth Bader Ginsburg today and some of them are gathering outside James Madison High School in Brooklyn, her alma mater. One of them was 35 year old Daniel Goon. She's a James Madison alumna, and she said the Supreme Court justice often reached out to kids from the high school. My sophomore year She sent us tickets for the Supreme Court, and we all went down and we met her afterwards in her chambers on band. You know it. It was like she was just One of us, she said. The experience was profound,.

Boost Georgia Congressman Doug Collins.

Bryson's brain subscribe wherever you get your podcasts around the world. Scientists are racing to develop a vaccine for covid nineteen and it looks as though researchers from Oxford University or at the head of the pack last Friday. The school said it had tested more than one thousand immunizations and adult volunteers now. The study is moving to the next phases. Which will involve more than ten thousand people in Human Trials? Adrian Hill is a principal investigator. He's the director of Oxford's Jenner Institute. We reached him in Oxford England Professor Hill. What should this news that? You're expanding your human trials which that signal to the public. Well this is good news. We are now moving from our phase one trial which was a large into a new protocol. Which is both face to face three the phase? Two trial is a small number of people but then we moved to ten thousand Vaccine knees over the next few weeks on the aim of course is to see if the vaccine works because we are in a place where incidences dropping sunny rapidly. Okay so you. You know that it's safe because you determine that with with the first of all trials with monkeys and with people and now you want to expand to find out if it works. That's that's the most important part. Isn't it obsolete well actually being safest the most of that comes Comes whether it works so not on. That is harder. Of course that when he said it's safe it has been safe and five hundred fifty or so vaccine is which is a reasonable number. But we'll be much happier after. We've accented another five thousand. Which is the plan for the phase three trial where of course as well as measuring cases of Covid we Look at safety as well but in determining if it works how do you do that? Ideally expose those people who have had this test vaccine. We expose them to the virus. There is an idea around that you might do that. Sort of study where you would liberty infect people know. Nobody's doing that at the moment but it is being discussed. No instead we let people get back to their everyday life and sadly people who get exposed which is a lot of people in the trial five thousand of those we'll get vaccinated with covid vaccine and five thousand wizner relevant control vaccine and of course what we do is compare the number of cases of Covid in the people who got the irrelevant vaccine which hopefully Rehire Linda's who got the covert vaccine but in your experiments with monkeys you did expose those animals to the virus two doses of the virus. What did you find there so what we were doing? Was a safety study in six monkeys before we started the File and the reason for that timing was there. Is this unlikely possibility but not impossible. Risk THAT SKATING. The vaccine would actually make people more susceptible if they did get the virus. So what we did. Was We set that up? In animals where we vaccinated with them and then amounts laser gave them really high dose of the virus to check. That there wasn't any evidence of any damage being done. And of course that's what we found which is why we were able to stop the trial but it was a very very high saw the virus in the challenge which went into the nose and mouth as well as into the lungs and what we found was that in the lungs there was really almost complete protection. No evidence of disease. All the monkees were fine. But in the knows where again we gave a very high those we did not see star protection at least not in the first week after seven days the virus had cleared so some evidence there that it might be hard to the nose than to share. The lungs full stunts the right way round. It's it's new money that kills people. Okay Yeah I WANNA get to that. What is that in plain English? What does that mean for The the efficacy of the vaccine does it mean that people will still be exposed to the virus. They could still get it but it won't go to the new MONJA phase which actually kills people. Certainly it should not go to the new mania phase. What we can't really interpret from this study is whether if you have a normal does of virus the salt that you might get from sitting beside somebody on a bus which would be a Lodo. Since you're upper respiratory tracts will the vaccine would be able to cope with Ashton? In fact there is some Were published just in the last week that shows. If you reduce the amount of virus you give to animals by hundredfold compared to what we gave you do see efficacy in the nose. So I think it's really hard. All our guests is that it will work well for preventing nasal infection as well as more important shape preventing pneumonia. But we will see fully in the upcoming trials and it doesn't show that it would prevent the spread of the virus doesn't as I say we. We don't know whether we are seen will work really well against preventing the spread of ours. We will be planning to do some further animal tests with a sort of physiological or normal challenge those two to assess that but nobody knows yet. What am I? Don't need to tell you how much how much anticipation there is. Having a vaccine for this virus have you ever been under this much pressure to perform? I don't think so. There's never been as much interest in would doing I think the pressure is attenuated. A little bit by the fact that there are so many axiom programs. I think the must be ten in lieutenant now and there are two others coming along bunch from China one from Johnson. That the same type of vaccine that we're using another at Navarro Vector and I guess is that if I vaccine works and we will probably Bela says to finish than other. Axes will work to and we may be able to help those out because the real challenge. That's just very daunting is just making enough vaccine for everybody. Who will want US particularly if we finish I and when going told you have millions of those we're talking billions of doses and and very importantly our new industrial partner Astra Zeneca has committed to that sort of capacity so they haven't made a billion doses yet to come do that in a month but they have reserved manufacturing capacity. Let would allow you to go so that scale if the vaccine works which is fantastic. And let's the earliest sort of Launch date for this. How early do you think you might have this? Vaccine Available Willie. Earliest conceivable days would be a result in August of the trial. Then you need some regulatory approval for emergency use which is fostered in the standard approval for commercial use so the might vaccine doses. Not huge numbers. Maybe a million. Maybe more in September people are aiming for more than that in September. But I would. I would take that as the best possible time. And that won't be global supply. Global supply will be soon afterwards but it will be. We'll be this year. I think all right we will. Of course be watching this very closely and I appreciate speaking with you.

"With live forever? In any event center was the calm between storms. Like, I say Clarence Thomas was next. I thought perhaps naively. The board nomination was as bad as it could get Senate Democrats has taken a universally admired and respected jurist managed to paint him as a threat to freedom and prosperity. The hit twisted his record. And his words until they were completely unrecognizable. Then came. Justice thomas. But it turns out that they rustling that grossly misrepresenting anomalies record is only part of the playbook. There's also character assassination. Justice thomas. As I think most people know is a dear friend of mine. We're under to have him here tonight. I'd like to make just a few points about his confirmation experience. Not many people remember this. But there were actually two sets of hearings on Justice Thomas is not the nation. The first was the standard set of hearings on his record and qualifications. The sort of hearings all supreme court nominees have to endure to go through the second set was the hearings with professor hill. Tannehill cain. Former Justice Thomas's nomination at already been voted out of committee. Indeed, she went public on the two days before Justice Thomas is on the nation was scheduled for the final. And so the Senate delayed the vote to hear from professor hill. You may notice some parallels here to recent events. The hearings were. They were ugly. But I believe they've indicated Justice Thomas I was there. I made sure they did. And the American people agreed opinion polls taken shortly after hearing showed that the public believe Justice Thomas's account overwhelmingly as they should have. And at the end of the day. He Justice Thomas was confirmed as should have been. One of the proudest moments of my time in the United States Senate to have him here tonight is a particular wonderful thing for me. One of the proudest moments. I had my life was defending Justice Thomas from scurrilous unfounded attacks on his character. Justice Thomas is a blessing to this country. And I thank God every day. That he is on the supreme court..

"It was horrifying. What professor hill went through was, of course, a horrible situation. But I think we just hoped that we had learned that we had come somewhere and eat. I mean, we have come somewhere. Do you guys feel that having Bret Cavanaugh on the supreme court after all of this going down? Does it degrade. The supreme court in the eyes of Americans. Do you look? Can I tell you? I tell you why I do is because we've had supreme court justices. I don't agree with, but there's always been a basic kind of decorum that the head like a basic dignity. I remember when Sam Alito mouth not true during a state of the union, and I remember thinking like, oh, that is so garish and this fuck and mutant Brad Kavanagh if he would've stood up there the first day and been like, here's the deal. I drink a shit ton. When I was a kid. I did some things. I don't remember Dr Ford, I am so sorry, if I hurt you, I, I have a family. I want to move behind it. I truly apologize and let's fix America. He would have had at least three Democrats vote for his ass. He went up there like a petulant little fucking baby. It was so demeaning is the perfect word. It was watching this guy knowing he was going to get buck and confirmed and watch him yell and say. I can't remember who it was. Do you drink Amy clothing, sharp. It was so shameful and embarrassing, and the fact that they didn't pull him and get a fucking Gorsuch clone. And now they're complaining about how we complained about him represents everything that's wrong with it, wasn't it just so bizarre watching him talk over Amy klobuchar and Kamala Harris made me. So I was also he's gonna do it to Ginsburg case. Oh, yeah. And here's my call. I would like to put money on this Ginsburg will be perfectly civil to him in all situations and then will undermine him professionally with his co workers cake. She lifts weights. She could kick his at keagan Kagan. We'll talk Madge shit in her decisions like she will tear him apart limb from limb in her two cents and soda Myo are the third time it happens on the bench will calmly say, please stop like she will commonly look him in the is not be scared of anything and just say, please stop. 'cause bitch from the Bronx. Watch when you watch when you watch them in chamber, like it's it's kind of a sacred thing even when I would watch, you know, Scalia talk. There was a gravity there and to imagine this guy up there. It's just it makes the whole thing joke. I felt sure you were going to say, when I watch judge Judy. Judge Mathis one day, build it this man, and it was much like Cavanaugh. There have been some unbelievable sons of bitches on the supreme court, though there was Justice mcreynolds from the nineteen thirties. He was such a stunning racist anti Semite that he never shook Justice. Brandeis his hand would leave the room. Whenever Justice Brandeis would speak in conference when the council for the NWEA c. p. Charles Hamilton, Houston came and argued before the supreme court. He stood up and turned his back. And when on the occasion that a woman would come and argue in front of the supreme court, he would say the woman is present and then would get up and walk out of the room. It is important to remember the United States. Constitution didn't blame her. Just never happened. Here, it's important to remember the United States. Constitution has weathered racist misogynistic white men before it can do it again. Right? The one thing people don't talk about his class with Brett Cavanaugh like he grew up rich. He went to the most elite private schools in the country. He's like, I worked my tail off. But you were in the top one percent income bracket of the country then? Yeah. And then you went to an Ivy league like there is a feeder system of entitlement that to me when I watched that statement, I was just like, oh, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah. You remind me of a lot of the dudes. I went to Harvard with look way to drop that you went to Harvard, you so much. Thank you so much. I went to state school smart..

"If I do not have the opportunity to do that. Then this Senator would regrettably being a possession that he would vote against the nomination of judge Clarence Thomas. But people have the right to know Mr President that people have the right to know people have the right to know that was out of the Powell that was Ellen Dickson. And the Clarence Thomas hearings were reopened and law professor Anita hill testified about what she says she experienced in terms of sexual harassment and sexual humiliation. From her boss, Clarence Thomas for her trouble. Professor hill was berated by the all male judiciary committee. She became an object of derision and defamation for Clarence Thomas supporters. She became something between a hero and a cautionary tale for women of all persuasions across the country is they saw how professor hill treated. But hill testimony put Senator Ellen Dickson democrat of Illinois in a little bit of a personal pickle because he had made that personal promise to the Republican President, George Bush before Nita hill ever came forward with this accusation. He had promised that he would vote. Yes, on Thomas before he ever heard of any of these allegations from her, what would he do now? Now that he had heard what she had to say. Professor Hill's testimony was moving and credible. Judge Thomas denial was forceful and equally credible. So what should the Senate do? What should the Senate do Senator Alan Dixon decided that what the Senate should do is confirm Clarence Thomas to the supreme court. Thomas, of course, did get confirmed by very narrow votes only fifty two to forty eight. That was generally along party lines, but not entirely Allen. Dixon alva- Powell was one of these Senate Democrats who voted yes on Clarence Thomas. And then after casting that yes vote, he had to go home to Illinois. Now at this point in his career, Ellen Dickson had one twenty nine consecutive elections, twenty nine in a row. Starting with the first one he ever ran in at age twenty one. He had never lost an election when he won his US Senate seat in the first place. He wanted in a walk by nearly fifteen points when he got reelected. Six years later in one thousand nine hundred sixty one by thirty one points by the time he was ready to run for a third term in one thousand nine hundred eighty two. He honestly didn't even expect anyone to run against him at the time he cast that. Yes, vote for Clarence Thomas. There was no challenger declared to run against him either from his own party or from the Republican party. He cast his vote for Clarence Thomas on October fifteenth, nineteen ninety one two days. Later on October seventeenth nineteen Ninety-one Senator Ellen Dickson went home to Illinois to a Democratic Party fundraiser at the navy, pier in Chicago and much to everyone's surprise. Hundreds of women showed up to pick it that Democratic Party fundraiser and they were all carrying the same sign dump Dixon. You can actually still see the dump Dixon pins they made for that protest there in political history collections. Now. But the first dumped Dixon protest was two days after Dixon's vote for the Clarence Thomas nomination. Two days after that protest. It's clear that Senator Al Dixon alva- Powell was starting to have a little bit of an moment about what that vote might cost him. This is from the daily dispatch newspaper from Moline, Illinois from October nineteenth nineteen Ninety-one. So this is four days after Dixon's. Yes, vote on common Thomas. It's only two days after he got picketed by women, protesters holding the dump Dixon signs at a democratic fundraiser. This is two days after that..

"Morning. Thanks indira. Thank you Ellie. I'm going to be reading a joint statement and copies of it are available outside on the table. Good morning. I'm Lisa Lyn Jacobs and this morning, I will be speaking on behalf of four national organizations dedicated to a radical meeting sexual and domestic violence and centered in their advocacy on behalf of black women and women of color national organization of sisters of color, ending sexual assault. Women of color network, black women's blueprint and Eugenia the National Center on violence against women in the black community. I was one year post law school. When professor Anita Hill's was summoned before the Senate Judiciary committee. Fast forward. I've now been practicing for some twenty eight years, and while some things have changed the violence against women act is now twenty four years old. How we talk to our children about things like consent in relationships. The ranking member of the Senate Judiciary committee, Dianne Feinstein is a woman some things have not women of color and native women were then and remain at greatest risk for sexual violence in this country. Yet, we are unlikely to report it because if we do we are judged not credible and people worry allowed at great length about how our truth telling may adversely impact the future of those who harmed us. We recognize that Dr Christine blazey Ford is being similarly stigmatized and that she has been threatened, and that she and her family have had to go into hiding as a result. We are here to say that we stand with her. We believe her and to demand a fair process going forward. Dr Ford deserves our thanks first and foremost for having come forward once her identity was revealed against her wishes and without her consent. Now as in nineteen Ninety-one those in control of the Senate Judiciary committee and the Senate itself are determined to rush through a supreme court candidate with inadequate time to examine serious and credible charges of sexual violence twenty eight years ago sexual harassment with no consideration and no respect for the traumatic impact on the witness. And in this instance, with insufficient time for the FBI to talk to all relevant witnesses prior to the scheduling of a hearing time has vindicated professor hill, and we should heed. Her wise words. Senate Judiciary should not fail to demonstrate its appreciation for both the seriousness of sexual harassment claims and the need for public confidence in the character of a nominee to the supreme court. It's pretty incredible to me that the judiciary committee's leadership seems unwilling to commit to obtaining the information. It needs prior to hearing from Dr Ford I worked for the US Justice department in the mid nineties, including work on judicial nominations. I handled a candidate about whom several people raised concerns regarding sexual harassment. Several did not wish to speak about the candidate unless assured confidentiality FBI agents interviewed them secured the needed information and frequently uncovered the names of additional witnesses who needed to be interviewed in the process if we are committed to finding out as much relevant information as we can. And we should be the FBI should be dispatched without delay. I often open or closed. My remarks with the words of civil rights advocate. Fannie Lou Hamer. Fannie Lou was a staunch advocate for voting rights, which among many others, including abortion, healthcare, and recognition of native Hawaiian and native Alaskan people would be imperilled. If judged Cavanaugh were to be confirmed. Fannie Lou once said as women and men we have a job to do. We've got to bring in Justice where there has been so much injustice. Justice demands a process that treats Dr Ford far better than the derision. Scorn and humiliation to which professor hill was subjected. She is not on trial Justice demands that we respect that. Dr Ford is a survivor of trauma, and that the Senate Judiciary committee here from experts on the lasting impact of trauma on survivors. Justice demands that the hearing process be paused while the FBI reopened its investigation and talks to any witnesses with knowledge that bears on the information that Dr Ford has provided and finally Justice demands that the American people have confidence not only in the integrity of those who sit on the highest court, but those responsible for giving their advice and consent to the president and the process by which they give it. Thank you. Coverage from the National Press Club on C span radio. It's now my privilege to introduce Roger canal, former special victims assistant district attorney an anti violence against women advocate rounder..

And as you can see, he's being very kind there to professor hills family. She just explained in her opening statement that she had grown up on a farm in rural Oklahoma. She was the youngest of thirteen children. She and her siblings were raised by those parents. She said in a deeply religious atmosphere in the Baptist church, she explained that that was still a very important part of her life, and then her parents are shown in after she explains it, and then the hearing gets underway.

This might be a good time to hit hit pause or hit the mute button. Can you tell me what incidences occurred of the ones you've described to us occurred in his office? Well, I recall specifically that the incident about the coke can occurred in his office at the EEOC. And what was that incident again, the incident with regard to the coke can statement once again for me please. The. Incident involved his going to his desk, getting up from a work table going to his desk, looking at this can and saying who put pubic hair on my coke. Was anyone else in his office at the time? No. Was the door closed. I don't recall. Are there any other incidences that occurred in his office with just his office period? There is, I recall at least one instance in his office at the c. where he discussed some in graphic material. He brought up the substance or the content of pornographic material. Again, it's difficult, but for the record, what substance did he bring up in this instance in his in his office? What was the content of what he said? This was a reference to an individual who. Who. Had a very large penis, and he used the name that he had been referred to in the pro pornographic material. Do you recall what it was? Yes, I do. The name that was referred to was long Dong silver. Let's go back to the first time you alleged judge. Judge. Thomas indicated he had more than a professional interest in you. Do you recall what the first time was and what was as much precisions you can't what he said to you? I I, as I recall it either happened at lunch or it happened in his office. And he said to me very casually, you ought to go out with me sometime. You ought to where you are to you ought to with regard to the other incidences that you have mentioned in your opening statement. Can you tell us how you felt at the time where you uncomfortable? You're barris. Did it not concern you? How did you feel about the pressure to go out with him? I felt embarrassed about because I didn't. I had given him an explanation that I thought it was not good for me as an employee working directly for him to go out at thought. He didn't take seriously my decision to say no, and that he didn't not respect my having said no to him. I the the conversations about sex. I was much more embarrassing humiliated, but the two combined really made me feel sort of helpless in a job situation because I really wanted to do the work that I was doing. I enjoyed that work. But I felt that that was being put in jeopardy by other things that were going on in the office. And so I was really, really very troubled by it and distressed over.

I'm Deborah Rodriguez KCBS news time five thirty two Bloomberg reports Amazon is cut deals to get lower rates for. The electricity to pay for its data centers across the country in some cases to cover these, costs the utility companies are passing the Bill on onto other customers these types of deals are not entirely uncommon but most of the time they never see the light of day for more we're joined live on the KCBS ring central Newsline by Ned hill Ohio State professor of public administration and city and regional planning. Professor hill thanks for joining us. This morning I've never heard of, anything like this is this a common practice that. We just were unaware of Unfortunately Susan it's. Very common in most people aren't. Aware of it because they just think. The the their local utility commission or their economic development authority Is somehow passing on discounts onto these company But what really happened is the the price break they get. Has been passed onto, the entire rate base so every electricity user. Many states wound up picking up the. Bill so let's talk about how this works we are often aware of these incentive deals that are cut by state or local government to get company XYZ to move in a. Tax break or maybe some bonds or sold is this part of that same package or is this something separate Well it's. It's a different exit lands to the same offer from the highway What happens is it happened in two different, forms one is as part of an, incentive package or as an expansion package the company negotiates with economic development authority and then they will only go forward to. The public utility commission existing language in in the law and cut a, deal and that this thing gets. Spread out to the rest of, the base but it's not unusual in state utility, laws have economic development clauses so that even existing companies that are energy intensive we'll get that break. In the way of keeping an energy and sense of user in the state. The the big auto companies frequently, have the discounts built-in for their assembly plants you'll see steel mills doing. It but the practice is is growing by reaching, found and there's no sunshine and if my point is that these are Not business or trade secrets, he's coughing business or trade secrets because you're asking for the ratepayers to. Pick up the Bill the public utility commissions The? Sacco taxation power so who makes the decision how the money is? Spread out and and are. Those fees spread out among other businesses as, well or is that just residential ratepayers that are picking up. The cost it's it's residential, and businesses it's spread out sort of like peanut butter but it's crunchy so that big rate payers pay, pay more so in Ohio we frequently we, have been have his, case where there are small. Number of existing businesses that have different rate deals and they become Cup sites by the competitors, which is just insane In Ohio it's especially difficult because we? Have, competitive, generating markets companies can buy the electricity on the wrong for the get the rate down we're seeing these these discounts start to bleed into. Discounts. On transmission prices I. Wanted to ask you about the ways the different states regulate both the generation of and the sale of power you know we, have one system here in California you have a different one in? Ohio Texas I'm not even. Try understand how it works there anymore so, that opens up the possibility for these kinds of deals to. Be done without any sort, of regulatory oversight well no but it's something has to be approved by some form of law if they, get if the cost gets kicked back to, the rape day okay The regular utility users so it can go, to the two usually a commission, has to approve them but there there may be. Some economic development powers here as, far as the companies concerned all they care. About is the lowest possible cost of using what, trysofi so they'll look at the generating charge and. The distribution charge in any special they're called writers they you know they tacked. Onto you into your utility Bill and they'll look at all that say. That's fine but I just want to pay four cents kilowatt hour make it work professor hill thank you for your. Time this, morning Ned hill Ohio State professor of.
