"I'm Richard Hake. As news breaks of a second allegation of sexual assault against supreme court nominee Brett Kavanagh. The timing of scheduled hearings has again been thrown into question. It's unclear now when professor Christine Blasi Ford will testify about her claim that she was sexually assaulted by Cavanaugh when they were both teenagers. Conservatives are suggesting that Ford's claims are politically motivated the same was said of Jenny Willoughby when her charges of domestic abuse came out against her ex husband, rob porter. He was a senior member of the Trump administration. Amanda, iran. Check has the story behind the story if the. Scandal over rob porter feels like a million years ago. Let me remind you of how the news broke this past February White House staff secretary, rob porter is stepping down his resignation comes after porter was accused of domestic abuse. There was a photo of his first ex wife showing a purple and yellow bruise puffy under her right eye. And there was a restraining order filed by his second ex wife it described porter punching in the glass door to her apartment. You might think, you know, all of this became public. But it's not what you think at the time. What propels you to come forward? So this is the thing that I think has been lost in translation, and a lot of the media coverage that I somehow came forward with this story, I'm not that woman. This is Jenny Willoughby Porter's second ex wife by the time, she appeared in the news. It had already been a few years since her divorce. She wasn't trying to have a me too moment. I didn't see domestic violence has caused and I certainly didn't want to be. The torch bearer before everything became public to the people around you believe you I didn't really talk about. I haven't told anybody anything so how did these private moments become public? Here's a timeline of what happened in January of twenty seventeen the FBI began conducting background checks on the new administration. They contacted Willoughby. So the first time she described in detail what had happened in her marriage was with F B I agents. And it brought it all back April of that year. She wrote a short blog post, titled why I stayed. I kept my mouth shut and stayed. If he was a monster all the time, perhaps it would have been easier to leave, but he could be kind and sensitive, and so I stayed. I was pregnant, and so I stayed. She didn't mention Puerto by name, but people they knew told him about it. And he called me enough that I take it down asked as polite word for how he asked me to take it down. And I said, no. So he asked her again, and again, and I realized each time he asked me if this did come to light, I have nothing to be ashamed of for ten months. Nothing happened until some political enemies of rob pointed reporters to that blog post, then everything started moving quickly, and I got phone calls from reporters within an hour of each other both of whom indicated that they had this blog post, and they had questions about my marriage. Willoughby had to decide she could stay silent. Or she could agree to talk to the media. And so at that point rather than let them use my words and make it something much more salacious than it was. I wanted to be the person who was speaking on what happened in my marriage now Channing good.

UK bans ‘misleading’ Facebook ads for a popular contraceptive app
"On Facebook for an app that promised a. Natural alternative, contraception has been banned by the UK's advertising. Standards authority the Swedish firm behind natural cycles has been warned not to exaggerate its effectiveness. The BBC's Mattie savage talk to one woman with reason to doubt. The app she got pregnant while using it, when we, realized that I was pregnant I felt irresponsible and scared and stupid and everything I mean there's a lot of science behind this app it. Has been approved for use, across the are you sure he didn't do anything. Wrong I feel that I really did everything reading the direction and, everything we decided to go ahead with the pregnancy but well when I, hear about people having abortions It feels awful that women families end up in. That situation Jessica tie is with. The advertising standards agency here in the, UK she supervised the investigation into natural cycles and. I asked, her what she found out so we had. A complaint about Facebook ads from natural cycles, that included the claim highly accurate contraceptive app. And we had a look at the evidence and actually the evidence. Showed that when you look at how people, use it, in practice it was not highly accurate Around eight percents of, women would get pregnant, over the course of the year if they. Were using this app and is the scope for the inventors here to say well people, just weren't using it right Well we we looked at the evidence actually the vast majority of people were not using it what? What, you would cool perfectly less than ten percents of people were using it perfectly and we think that's that's the key thing here really what do people mean by perfect and imperfect use in this case well whenever you look at the evidence for any method of contraception you. Would differentiate between what's cool perfect to, use what school typical use. A so perfect uses using it completely in accordance with the instructions and. For this app that would include, inputting information about your menstrual cycle when you're having intercourse and also excuse it comes with a, thermometer so you have to import your temperature every day at a particular time and we know that for example if you're unwell or if you've been out drinking that can affect how accurate the predictions are because it will then give predictions about what you safe to, have, intercourse that day without using another Method of contraception it's perhaps understandable that that people were? Not, using it perfectly and we think that the key data is how how effective it is in practice not in this perfect world getting pregnant when you want to be pregnant is a pretty serious consequence of misleading advertising isn't it what are the sanctions against them well we. Here to ensure that advertising is not, misleading and our ruling makes. Completely clear that natural cycles should not be repeating this claim that it's. Highly accurate and they shouldn't be, making similar claims they should take real k. in feature when they're talking about how accurate their, product is that they're not misleading consumers Jessica
