1:02 pm
us, that they may kill us to make it look like suicide. he said this may be the last time you see us. that was really the only outburst. at times, the defendants would stop court to pray. but otherwise, they were completely disengaged. one of the co-defendants was actually had to be brought in in restraints because he had refused to come to court, and it's mand deere in an arraignment that they be present. he had to be shackled and in restraints and it was only later that they were removed when he agreed to participate. >> thanks so much. >> after making his first official campaign rally in columbus, ohio, this afternoon, president obama is now in virginia this evening, rather, for another rally. he'll be looking at livepictures momentarily. oh, yeah, folks are ready and poised, waiting for the president to arrive in virginia after making his way through ohio. let's go to jessica yellin.
1:03 pm
you were in ohio earlier. now, on your way there in virginia. a really quick turn. what do we expect to hear from the president? very similar to his stump speech there in ohio? or different audience, different message? >> fredricka, i think it will be the same speech. maybe slightly different emphasis in ohio. there's a very heavy emphasis on the auto bailout, manufacturing, because 1 in 8 jobs there is connected in some ways to manufacturing. but the theme you have heard him deliver will -- the overarching theme will be the same, which from the campaign will be its idea that the president has taken the economy from a place where he was handed it where the economy was hemorrhages jobs and he did what he could to stop the hemorrhaging, to turn it around, and he cites a lot of data about
1:04 pm
private sector job growth, he argues it will get better in the future. one of the things you'll note is in the -- and shood out to me, in his message in ohio, he's critical of the republican congress. he was critical of mitt romney, but his attack on mitt romney was not bitingly negative. it was a criticism of his policy and his approach. the attitude was more, mitt romney doesn't get it for middle class americans. here's what he had to say about mitt romney. >> when a woman in iowa shared the story of her financial struggles, he responded with economic theories. he told her, productivativety equals our income. well, let me tell you something. the problem with our economy isn't that the american people aren't prukoductive enough. you have been working harder than ever.
1:05 pm
the challenge we face right now -- the challenge we face for over a decade is that harder work hasn't led to higher income. it's that bigger profits haven't led to better jobs. governor romney doesn't seem to get that. >> so you see how it wasn't a personal attack on mitt romney. it was more of a broader message about the distinctsure distinc policies. he may focus more on women's issues. one note i'll wrap up on, he said, tell folks the campaign is still about open change. >> jessica yellin, thanks so much, coming to us from richmond, virginia. meanwhile, mitt romney is slamming president obama over the new labor report that came out yesterday.

so your body can stay in motion. because just one 200mg celebrex a day can provide 24 hour relief for many with arthritis pain and inflammation. plus, in clinical studies, celebrex is proven to improve daily physical function so moving is easier. and celebrex is not a narcotic. when it comes to relieving your arthritis pain, you and your doctor need to balance the benefits with the risks. all prescription nsaids, like celebrex, ibuprofen, naproxen, and meloxicam have the same cardiovascular warning. they all may increase the chance of heart attack or stroke, which can lead to death. this chance increases if you have heart disease or risk factors such as high blood pressure or when nsaids are taken for long periods. nsaids, including celebrex, increase the chance of serious skin or allergic reactions or stomach and intestine problems, such as bleeding and ulcers, which can occur without warning and may cause death. patients also taking aspirin and the elderly are at increased risk for stomach bleeding and ulcers. do not take celebrex if you've had an asthma attack, hives, or other allergies to aspirin, nsaids or sulfonamides.

1:17 pm
different depending on what you have seen online, but say, i noticed on the website that, i was watching on the news, or whatever is going on, how does that affect this position? you're telling them, i have been checking up on you, reading, i understand what's going on. how does it affect my position? >> and you think these are like make or break kind of moments? >> these are. it gives you an opportunity to go back and forth with them. that's so critical. you're building rapport. >> oh, my goodness. hopefully folks will feel empowered do that. a lot of times they're intimidated by the process and they get nervous about the idea of challenging a perspective employer because they're afraid they're going to turn them off. >> you ask simple questions like what do you feel is an ideal fit for this role? do you see any reasons why i might not be the right candidate for the role? this allowsio to go back and say, when i follow up, they saw

vogue magazine is turning heads with a surprising promise. it says it will no longer use models younger than 16 or models who appear to have an eating disorder. critics have long complained that the exceedingly skinny and adolescent models don't reflect reality. former model sarah tells me she
1:21 pm
agr agrees. >> i started working when i was 14 years old. i have seen both the good and bad sides of the industry, and i know firsthand what young models can go through. i think that vogue is really taking a very positive step in not hiring models who are under 16. >> what do you mean, what models go through? give me an example of what you consider to be quite harsh for a young 14-year-old breaking into the business or other young teens? >> sure, well, if you look at any other group of performer, whether it's actors or dancers, they have unions, and models don't have any kind of support like that. so not only are they minors, but they're working in an adult industry without any kind of structural support, and so there are issues ranging from lack of financial transparency, pressure to stay very skinly, obviously,
1:22 pm
that adolescent physique is tied to youth, and vogue is addressing the thin issue, that size zero issue by saying we're not going to use models under 16. >> what do you remember hearing about the weight issue, but whatnot it would fit into the clothes to make sure the clothes were showcased because your weight had to be at a certain size? what do you remember specifically? >> well, it's sort of a vicious cycle. everyone likes to point fingers. the editors say the designers by cutting their sample sizes on the runway to a size zero, that means the models have to be a size zero, and the editors are hiring them for the magazines. i think vogue is taking a stand and saying, you know, we need to change this. this has been going on for too long. >> did you feel that kind of pressure to look as youthful as
1:23 pm
possible but at the same time, kind of, you know, be a grown woman at the tender age of 14? >> well, obviously, when you're 14, 15, your body hasn't really developed yet. so you can naturally have that kind of gangly adolescent body. and i think the problem with eating disorders really kicks in when kids feel they have to maintain that body type. obviously, it's just unnatural to try to, you know, have the body of a 14-year-old as you're growing up. >> sara ziff, and kids say crazy things, and sometimes they don't realize the meaning of what they're saying. a 6-year-old is in serious trouble for repeating a song he saw on television. tyler lopez of our affiliate has the story. >> you have seen the video and knows the lyrics. >> but when 6-year-old told a first great girl in the class

1:25 pm
i think there's probably a better way to talk about appropriate and inappropriate. >> i could understand if he was fondling her, looking up her skirt, trying to look in her shirt. that, to me, is sexual harassment. >> that was tyler lopez reporting. so from the baseball court to the class room, find out why former nba star shaquille o'neal is in cap and gown today.
