a new c.n.n. program rehashes allegations that russia interfered in the u.s. election to give no hard evidence we watched did we'll tell you all about it we just did in fact come on up to criticisms leveled at the u.s. administration for failing to give solid proof to back its claims yesterday that the syrian government was preparing a chemical weapons attack on the case that one. former u.k. prime minister david cameron and prince william are implicated in a corruption scandal over england's failed bid for the twenty eighteen world cup according to a long awaited report. good
1:01 am
morning to you just turned eight in the morning here in moscow my name's kevin irwin this is r.t. international and we go good this wednesday let me take you through our top stories we're leading with this one a typing error in the i.t. department allegedly helped hackers gain access to the e-mails of clinton campaign chairman john podesta is the news this morning well according to a new documentary on russia's alleged meddling in the twenty sixteen u.s. election race anyway it's been aired in the last few hours by the american network c.n.n. kara was what she and i took a quick scooter it just now lots of drama there lots of dramatic soundbites lots of dramatic music but i didn't get to see it all after say you watch more of it was that smoking gun. well kevin this is a special report that i add to viewers just a few hours ago as you said and it was billed as the first comprehensive telling on television the talk of the twenty sixteen race with geography lessons for the american league and the pup. about more still to come now who wouldn't want to
1:02 am
watch this it sounds like c.n.n. is finally going to lift the lid on all this unsubstantiated evidence unverified source it's been used to suit themselves almost exactly it's been using this to russia for almost a year now so there's going to be a lot of disappointed viewers is all i have to say it's the same old tune repackaged in a new way a lot of on this music a lot of close up shots on president putin looking mean and moody and the same sort of thing we saw in previous special reports from c.n.n. such as putin the most powerful man in the world something which the got back to and called. it called hysterical it was good for ratings of course but i am. to say something good about the special report there is a lot of nicely edited sound bites from big names big named former officials including james clapper the former director of national intelligence on john podesta hillary clinton's former campaign chair
1:03 am
a lot of ground is covered in this hour long special including the security failure which opened the d.n.c. to hacks in the first place which you just spoke about that i mean john podesta responding to this e-mail from hackers asking him to change his e-mail passwords and him happily hunting over after an i.t. specialist told him that the e-mail was legitimate instead of illegitimate it was a type of call is quite embarrassing also so-called evidence presented suggesting it was russia that was behind the hacks such as the hacks took place during excuse me during moscow working hours and we can only live in hope viewers will understand that moscow shows the same time zone with a lot of different cities around the world and also besides this do hackers work nine to five jobs you know another topic they came up with the two thousand and seven protests in a stonier for which there was no question that russia was responsible for inciting these protests despite no evidence ever being presented to suggest it is an
1:04 am
official from and this broadcasting institute suggests insists that this was totally unreasonable to even consider that anybody else was behind these these protests which is quite bizarre. and if you remember in the tease that c.n.n. promised to lift the lid on there being more attacks from russia still to come and we do indeed get this right at the very end where the presenter asks james clapper is russia still attempting to hijack the u.s. now in this is what he said. were true i. think it's in their d.n.a. . you're doing this over here or no. all right well now all this coming in a bit of a difficult time for c.n.n. in the last twenty four hours because of course the video yes the covert video. it's not been a very good week for c.n.n. i was taught is one day before the airing of this special report which i'm sure they're very excited about three c.n.n.
1:05 am
staff members resigned after the network was forced to retract and as the related story and the day just went from bad to worse really because after that a producer for c.n.n. was quote saying the network that russia coverage was more about boosting ratings than stating solid facts so perhaps the view was we'll be watching this latest special report with fresh eyes over hatfill critical eye especially after this one we did reach out to see and then. because a lot of people got their thoughts about this kind of journalism with you not with your fun of it not. going to know that we reached out c.n.n. and say look this is this true maybe the goes on the joke there's been no response or glee niren overly violence but about that and that latest leak that's a hidden camera evidence showing the c.n.n. staff member talking about c.n.n. boosting ratings with its russia coverage and our correspondent caleb morgan has more on that let's take a look. well a video has surfaced of a c.n.n.
1:06 am
producer saying that most of their russian trump coverage is well and more polite terms nonsense they want to see them constantly and. this is really. this very reserved. but. it's just like. most of the right you know we don't know. proof and it's not just one guy from c.n.n. who's saying that there's not much to this story of trump russia collusion there is no evidence that there was collusion but they couldn't find any evidence of collusion no evidence of. there is no evidence of collusion between the russians and the trump campaign and what it comes to the issue of collusion which was the word that was used today you know depends what you know how direct you're talking but at this point what's not proven is the idea of collusion that's correct still no evidence but the media keeps pushing the story project veritas that leaked the
1:07 am
recent video says that c.n.n. has mentioned trump in russia roughly sixteen thousand times you would think people might get bored with the subject by now are you tired of hearing about trump and russia yes actually yes that's all i hear about. getting tiring we're all exhausted however however it has to be it has to get the truth to come out and the truth is that there was interference in the american electorate system but by the sentiment you feel like this is what the american people want to see on t.v. is they want to hear about trump allegedly working with russia. not me not a my friend i think they would that something. if if there is something secret about something people want to know even more so if you just bring it out in the open if there is something you'll come out if it's not then it's just go away and you feel like the media should be reporting on this more or less less and like to hear where these sources are coming from or who's saying it spares i know it could
1:08 am
be my next door neighbor they don't have proof they need to drop it now the c.n.n. producer allegedly said that they keep pushing the story because of the ratings however a lot of the americans we spoke to said they'd rather watch something else cable mopp and r.t. washington d.c. white house spokesperson was asked about the news conference to she said the story could further undermine trust in the media i think if it is accurate i think it's a disgrace to all of media to all of journalism i think we have gone to a place where. if the media can't be trusted to report the news then that's a dangerous place for america or the group that released the videos called project veritas and the it's works proved highly controversial in the past it has to be said it's been accused of violating what was and is facing a multi million dollar lawsuit after it released hidden camera conversations with
1:09 am
democratic party workers discussing voter fraud the group's also been accused of misleading the public with flawed editing of its videos project. dismisses the lawsuit as intimidation which challenge the group's communications director to the controversial tactics here. he's sitting in those meetings he's part of the decision making process or privy to the decision making process we're not sure which what they air and what they don't air his own pieces were dropped so they could carry russia pieces so he's right in the middle of that myth of what they are and what they don't care yes it's certainly qualified to speak to the issue and the only way to get to the truth sometimes is with undercover video which has a very rich and long and proud tradition undercover investigations of obtaining the truth and other mechanisms fail people are not going to sit up there and brag on the podium that were corrupt we weren't specifically looking for this angle but we
1:10 am
know i mean this is a general area we are going we don't know exactly what would catch we caught it i'm not expecting a backlash from this particular video because we followed the law we followed what the letter and the intent of the law was how we obtained video we heard that c.n.n. said that they are going to put out any sort of statement however they're sort of tweeting out some stuff and we're tweeting back at i'm donald trump's tweet now and i'm we're right in the mix with them right now on twitter obviously we're not going to tell you what's coming up or who day that targets are but we have many targets in the mainstream media that we are actively working on and we'll have more on c.n.n. coming sometime very soon. officials in the u.s. administration under pressure to reveal evidence that led them to claim that the syrian military is preparing chemical weapons attack the state department spokesperson refused to be drawn when she was quizzed about the allegations by reporters late. has had evidence to share with us about this potential preparation for these chemical weapons because that was an absolutely right and nor
1:11 am
would that be laid out because that would be considered an intelligence matter when you guys believe that it's in your interests you do put out what you say is evidence of proof of things that involve intelligence i'm not going to get into that one with you but this is a very serious and grave matter any to. acts on the syrian people you know will be blamed you know on the sea and the russians why not find out who this is obviously a complex war with the right number of actors yeah you're right looting isis. seemed like a rather a nuanced comment of what wouldn't you find out who exactly you know was responsible for blaming i can't get too much into. france and the u.k. however have pledged to support an american attack on syrian government forces despite the lack of evidence is more goes to of next looks at why washington seems to be putting punishment before due process but shah al assad has one really
1:12 am
bad habit and that habit is and you need does this when he's winning he ruined everything by doing something really stupid for no reason at all. like launching a chemical attack on an consequential village in the middle of nowhere we're going by washington's narrative here by the way take acids army now they're crushing slavek state liberating vast swaths of syria and out of the blue comes this the united states has identified potential preparations for another chemical weapons attack by the saddam regime as sad knows the probable cause and sequences of a chemical attack it's the only thing really right now that could ruin him by giving his enemies the opportunity of a pretext to attack him why would he do it because he's evil the
1:13 am
murderous syrian dictator bashar assad has been a brutal dictator bashar al assad's a murderous regime in syria assad is the worst kind of brutal war criminal a classic super villain boof stupid and evil beyond any logic the kind of villain batman would go after and america is not mind. if mr assad conducts another mass murder attack using chemical weapons he and his military will pay a heavy price britain is already on board does something really dumb for new reason again the u.k. will join. in the u.s. in punishing him we think it's absolutely right if we can to prevent the use of chemical weapons and we will fully support any u.s. action if you've been following events in syria recently you know they aren't
1:14 am
kidding the united states has attacked assad five times in what they say is self-defense but when they see that they don't actually mean it u.s. troops when never threaten knew they were defending that isis allies who the syrian army says were never threatened i that the us that allies to the teeth. we have already started to provide the weapons and the equipment in the ammunition that we said that we would and will continue to provide those two or syrian democratic forces both the syrian arabs and syrian kurds the kurds of course are being used by the americans to further american foreign policy and i think it's the same with the kurds to fall into that strategy is to back other forces loyal
1:15 am
to the united states and which also loyal to were influenced by saudi babe in the gulf states funded by them in order to maintain an ability to undermine militarily the government of the problem is justifying a prolonged conflict isn't easy once the voters don't want another gun who bombing campaign they learn their lesson after the first few times the international community sick of reckless interventions and unique thing left is to wait for asaad to give them a cause and since he's a comic book supervillain. it's just two parts of the script. go some thoughts from former cia officer philip giraldi he says there's no room for speculation when it comes to another potential u.s. strike on syrian government forces particularly in this case you would be i would
1:16 am
think compelled to provide evidence because the only basis you have for this is allegations about a plan apparently and also you're basing those allegations on a claim which is quite speculative there's considerable debate as to whether the government was indeed involved and indeed the so-called rebels had much more motivation and control the area where these attacks took place just shocking to. to have this presented in a way that the u.s. government which is in syria illegally is threatening the legal syrian government and legal syrian government allies iran and russia. but a football story brewing the smalling england's world cup bidding team has been implicated in a corruption scandal over its failed push to host twenty eight into one of an official report also names no former u.k. prime minister david cameron and prince william who are meeting with vote swapping was discussed neil harvey an award winning sports broadcaster stan collymore of
1:17 am
following the story right now there in the russian city of khazan cover the confederations cup. so let's start with the most damning of the allegations which involves south korea now the claim is that the south korean delegate was the vice president at the time that on the eve of the world cup voting in a hotel room the suite of prince william cambridge met with that then u.k. prime minister david cameron and the discussion was then england won in south korea to vote for them and that the south korean delegate said well we will vote for you if you vote for us in twenty twenty now some people would say that you scratch my back i'll scratch yours he says that's illegal and it breaks. for big people in the football industry would now understand what that means and you just mentioned. quite simply it is illegal some of the allegations again. of job placement
1:18 am
now you talking about this is jack warner who's the trinidad and tobago official. is going to. want to it is claimed in the report wanted a friend of the family to be given a placement at tottenham hotspur apparently this happened is that and also you. was it like when the host nations were announced that it was going to be russia twenty thousand and twenty twenty two what was the atmosphere when those were announced it was a very free brawl atmosphere in england school social media. went crazy to be honest with lots of sports broadcasters lots of journalists talking about. oh well it's not surprising russia could have corrupt countries there of course free for drugs. just mentioned in twenty fourteen the lots of allegations leveled at russia or in qatar when they secured will come posting rights but the fee for report clears both nations of the accusations investigation found no proof that any bribes
1:19 am
took place some of the analysts we spoke to say the whole process of choosing will flawed. the allegations laid out the garcia report suggests that this isn't the only time this happened it suggests that this was one of the many. questionable behaviors that occurred in the midst of the big process for not only twenty team but twenty points to a so it's just yet more allegations that this process was flawed that the that he was out of control and as an organization that should not be allowed to conduct these affairs in secret if you look at the actions and. politically of britain and the u.s. has got involved in basically trying to secure russia for just about any kind of scandal they can they can try through any sort of sports related scandal in the olympics or through the world cup to try to take the world cup away from them in twenty eighteen and this is no secret and no surprisingly it would have liked to have the twenty eighteen world cup even if they had to steal it from russia at
