tv Headline News RT June 28, 2017 2:00am-2:30am EDT
this twenty eighth of june headline in the small u.s. intelligence chief says meddling is in russia's d.n.a. and that's proof enough says that moscow continues to infiltrate american politics the comment came in a new c.n.n. documentary we'll talk all about that this morning coming up two criticisms leveled at the u.s. administration for failing to give solid proof to back its claim that the syrian government is preparing a chemical weapons attack. and also warning former u.k. prime minister david cameron and prince william are implicated in a corruption scandal over a failed bid for the twenty eighteen world cup according to a long awaited report. by
very good morning for me kevin owen here in moscow happy wednesday is going good so far let me take you through our top stories then first meddling is in russia's d.n.a. according to the former director of the u.s. national intelligence james clapper but he goes on to say proves that moscow is still making attempts to influence american politics he was appearing in a new documentary that just aired over the last few hours the c.n.n. that. courtroom. i think it's in your d.n.a. . or in the soviet era or no. you've watched this more fully because i said in the last few months at a time through some of it great movie and say you know nice sound effects dramatic music sound bites probably keeps you watching but was the smoking gun walk having nothing much anticipation eva. this latest special report from c.n.n.
because it was billed as the first comprehensive telling on russia's attack on the twenty sixteen race with jarring lessons for the american leader and the public about more attacks still to come so it really seemed like c.n.n. was going to lift the lid on a little these unsubstantiated reports and unverified claims it's made in the past over russia related stories but there's going to be a lot of disappointed viewers some afraid because the same old tune we packaged in a new way a lot of our music slowly close up shots on president putin take a look for yourself. some of these are. just prime targets you see us. coming after america dangerous. do you story in cyberspace that would lead to doorstep so it's the same sort of thing we've seen before from c.n.n.
they've done the special report for they did that one called the most powerful man in the world in reference to president vladimir putin which the kremlin responded to calling hysterical but on a positive note there's plenty of nicely edited sound bites from big former officials such as claims that james clapper the former director of national intelligence and also john podesta hillary clinton's former campaign chair and a lot of ground is covered to be fair in this one hour special report including the security failure which initially opened up the d.n.c. to hacks in the first place by being down to john podesta of course every spawning to an e-mail from a hacking group requesting that he changes in mail passwords and him happily giving it away after an i.t. guy confirms that this team out was legitimity instead of a legitimate it was a typo that's the quote was our c.n.n. call the e-mail. as having helped the democratic party lose the two
thousand and sixteen presidential race now also presented in this documentary is the so-called evidence presenting suggesting it was russia that was behind the hacks such as the hacks took place during moscow working hours the new hope people watching this will realize that moscow does share a time zone with many other countries. around yet also do hackers work nine to five . besides this let's take a look at this graph. but it's some of it surprisingly simple such as time stamps showing that the hackers were starting and finishing their work on moscow time for a good week for c.n.n. there was this. covert surveillance footage just a home of your own views on this where you think is a good or a bad thing to do that we're going to talk a bit more detail of the minute about was an employee said yesterday allegedly saying that basically it was the russian made good ratings and good good ratings
right there will come into the minute but of course there was also this discredited russia story as well it's been a bird week for c.n.n. has been a bad we can after all these allegations and stories coming out about c.n.n. then one would hope if you were watching this latest documentary with a more critical eye like you just said just one day before the airing of this special report as do we still c.n.n. staff members resigned over an unsubstantiated story related to russia and that they just went from bad to worse it really snowballed after that a producer for c.n.n. was quote saying that the networks russia coverage was more about ratings than stating solid facts and we did reach out to see find out more you know twenty four hours ago we started with a story of the call but nothing back from c.n.n. at this point we're still waiting but we'll be bringing the view is that several spots as soon as we get it but more on this project vera tansley about this man used to talking about ratings for c.n.n. as. well a video has surfaced of a c.n.n.
producer saying that most of their russian trump coverage is well and more polite terms nonsense they want to see them constantly. with. this regimes this very reason. it's just like. it's mostly right now we don't know. proof and it's not just one guy from c.n.n. who is saying that there's not much to this story of trump russia collusion and there is no evidence that there was collusion but they couldn't find any evidence of collusion no evidence of collusion or there is no evidence of collusion between the russians and the trump campaign and when 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 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 oh yes actually yes that's all i hear about. getting tiring we're all exhausted however however it has to be it has to be that the truth has 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. that something. is 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 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. r.t. washington d.c. . spokesman was asked about a news conference by the video she said the story could further undermine trust of the media listen this i think if it is accurate i think it's just grace 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 it's a dangerous place for america the group which released the videos called project. works proved highly controversial in the process to be said he's been accused of violating wiretapping laws for a start and is facing a million dollar lawsuit to alter released hidden camera conversations with
democratic party workers discussing voter fraud groups accused of misleading the public of florida editing of videos project dismisses the lawsuit as intimidation would challenge the group's communications director about the controversial tactics . we weren't specifically looking for this angle but we know i mean this is a general area we were going we didn't know exactly what we would catch we caught it 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 and people are not going to sit up there and brag on the podium that we're corrupt 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 today to go 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 stepping or tweeting back at i'm donald trump's tweet now adam
were right in the mix with them right now on twitter obviously we're not going to tell you what's coming up or who it is 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. but officials in the u.s. administration under pressure to reveal evidence that led them to claim the syrian military is preparing a chemical weapons attack the state department spokesperson refused to be drawn when she was quizzed about the allegations by reporters as had evidence kids share with us about this potential preparation for these chemical weapons because that was an absolutely right and nor 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 it's evidence of proof of things that involve intelligence i'm not going to get into that one with you but this is that a very serious and grave matter any attacks on the syrian people you know would be
blamed you know on the seat in the russians i now find out who is obviously a complex war with the right number of actors a right leading isis. it seems like it rather a nuanced comment of what wouldn't you find out who exactly you know was responsible. in any case from this in the u.k. have pledged to support an american attack on syrian government forces despite the lack of evidence next the nazis more against the of looks or why washington seems to be putting punishment before dean process but shah al assad has one really 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 and then 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 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 yawned 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 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 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 threatened know 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 equipment in the area nation that we said that we would and will continue to provide those two or syrian democratic forces both the syrian arizona syrian kurds and the kurds of course being used by the americans to further american foreign policy and i think it's an awful shame that the kurds to fall into that strategy is to attack other forces which are moral to the united states and which are also to were influenced by saudi arabia and the gulf states and funded by them in order to maintain an ability to undermine militarily the government of a problem it is just defying the prolonged conflict isn't easy
western voters don't want another gun who bombing campaign they learned their lesson after the first few times the international community sick of reckless interventions the unique thing left is to wait for asaad to give them a cause and since he's a comic book supervillain. it's just the parts of the script. but on a serious note for some for the drolly to lose 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 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 that 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 a lot more to come including at least ten countries hit by the musci of cyber a type of an i will tell you all about shortly. this is another post the center of. the law i. believe though so. you.
just. have to leave the last that you can really. cause i don't know that my. body itself what they say but oh. but the investigate police officers behavior as well. i'll take drugs on the web. presence here. only people. who will not twist and turns in that england's world cup bidding now been implicated in a corruption scandal over the failed push to host the twenty eighteen told them and
apparently a fee for report also names former u.k. prime minister david cameron and prince william who were apparently at a meeting where vote swapping was discussed picking up this one this morning neil harvey and award winning sports broadcaster stan collymore following the story instantly there in the russian city covering the ongoing 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 he was the fifth the vice president at the time met on the eve of the world cup voting in a hotel room the suite of prince william the cambridge that he met with that then u.k. prime minister david cameron and the discussion was that england wanted 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's my back i'll scratch yours he says that's illegal and it breaks the regulation for big people in the football industry would now understand what that means and you just mentioned
there are scratch your back you scratch more. statute. quite simply it is illegal so you there are. a job placement now you took it out this is jack warner who's the trinidad and tobago official trinidad and tobago is going to vote their england jack warner it is claimed in the report wanted a friend of the family to be given a placement at tottenham hotspur and apparently this happened is that and also your former apparently what was it like when the host nations were announced that it was going to be russia twenty eight hundred twenty twenty two what was the atmosphere when 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. them she's there for of course free for
votes meantime picking up on something else to mention there are lots of allegations at the time level that russia or encounter with a secure world cup hosting rights but this fee for report clears both nations of the accusations its investigation found no proof that any bribes took place international sports attorney david larkin believes the whole process of choosing. cup hosts was floored. the allegations weighed out with or suggested 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 practices for not only twenty team but twenty points to a so it's just yet more allegations that this process was flawed. that keep it out of control and as an organization that should not be allowed to conduct these affairs in secret i think this really is a very inconvenient report that details some of the shady behavior or that
occurred around the bid process that fever tolerate next to this one to this effect a massive global cyber attack struck at least ten countries last twenty four hours with. from india to the united states thousands of companies and government agencies been caught up in the run somewhere a top maybe a bit more to come to including major energy shipping and banks reports first emerged in ukraine and russia which had been worst hit the latest attack than is thought to be a malicious code cold which had been used before but subsequently experts then later found it could have been a modified version that struck over the last twelve fifteen hours although they struggle to name it so the settled on one inspiringly not pecha his miguel fans in santiago on the global menace from it seems no one is safe. industry giants airports and governments no one was apparently safe in the latest mass cyber attack the plague started in russia and ukraine and spread globally in
a matter of hours moscow based oil giant ross nafta a major advertising firm in the u.k. logistics behemoth moller myers can then mark and prominent companies in spain france and the united states all have fallen under attack by the malware the way it works is it includes everything you have on the computer and then locks it asking for a ransom in the amount of three hundred to five hundred dollars and to infiltrate the system it uses some well known technology allegedly one from the arsenal of the n.s.a. it appeared a little over a month ago when more than a hundred countries came under attack by the ransomware want to cry major hospitals across the u.s. and the you couldn't use their computers businesses went down causing havoc it took around twenty four hours to contain that attack this time the fallout seems to be more modest victims are reporting that little damage has been done so far in the case of russia's rosneft for example oil production wasn't even affected still this
virus has penetrated servers worldwide again and you would think the hackers won't get lucky a third time we go francis and thiago r.t. . so choose the police by hacking tools developed by america's national security agency which will then dumped online in april the national security agency has not acknowledged its tools were used in the want to cry or other attacks but on twitter whistleblower edward snowden has condemned the attack asking when the n.s.a. will accept responsibility for the damage. and he says when they. read faces of billions police department after hundreds of officers deployed to help secure next month's g twenty summit in hamburg was sent home of the reports of wild partying peter all of the reports. in just over two weeks germany will. because directing one of the biggest security operations in this recent history of the g twenty summit arrives in hamburg police from all over the country is being drafted in but
it's one particular group from right here in berlin that hit the headlines. so how police informed us that hundreds of forces did not behave properly there and therefore they sent them back to berlin it's alleged that as many as three hundred offices are being sent home after excessive partying at the former refugee center that they were being housed in base included scenes of heavy drinking sex and public urination the german tabloid newspaper billed how some pictures of just before the party got really out of hand as you can imagine police chiefs involved in organizing humbug less than happy the forces are back in but when with this action the police commander has made it very clear that this kind of behavior by officers is on the acceptable the berlin police will now start a further examination of all facts and circumstances the scale of consequences
following the incident will be a result of these examinations while police getting caught letting their let's face it just about everything else down may seem like a bit of a giggle the security operation for the g. twenty is a huge deal the terrorist threats in europe is at its highest for a generation the highest in the past twenty years the g twenty meeting in hamburg is of course a potential target for terrorists like any other important public event as thousands of demonstrators are getting ready to descend on how membered for the g. twenty with the terror threat across europe remaining high this scandal couldn't have come at a worse time peter all of our. i'm kevin though in and out age queue this so wednesday morning thanks for company but with more life in thirty four when it's so many more stories. colmes well if you mobile next though we invite you to stay in the loop but what should the hopes.
while the liberal mainstream media serve up an endless menu of trump bashing and russia gave the democratic party in the so-called resistance continue to lose elections are the attempts to destroy trump at all costs destroying the democrats and undermining the credibility of the liberal mainstream media. economic development is all about numbers really pleased to report this quarter we are one hundred six point two. but what do we know about the other figures. when i think about the fact that our c.e.o. might do. over twenty million dollars last year more than one thousand times the average wal-mart is says. with all respect i have to say
i don't think that's right. is that just how a free market works. people went from pretty simple financial lives pre nine hundred eighty to the point now where people are. just totally submerged in their financial accounts and they're all in debt and what exactly divided society that phone the part of the government tried to do it wasn't necessarily maybe. it might be making things worse. by saying this is not how capitalism works this is all capitalism goes hopelessly designer strictly wrong.
greetings and salyut asians oh goodness goodness gracious c.n.n. you just can't seem to catch a break these days can you within days of getting caught with their journalistic pants down after miss reporting last week that the trump transition team member and wonderful wall street type anthony scot removed she was meeting with the chief executive of a russian businessman just four days before trump's inauguration. a story that turned out not to be all that accurate then saw the firings or i'm sorry resigning
of three veteran c.n.n. journalist thomas frank eric looked brown lex haris now it appears that c.n.n. has found themselves victim to one james o'keefe yaz that james o'keefe you remember him the acorn pimp scandal fame that guy seems the controversial right wing my name. journalist if you believe manipulative editing and staged events that would make such a burn cone cover as eyes and shame could be called journalism and that guy has captured one of siemens many producers spilling the beans on their obsession with all things trump and russia on c.n.n. constantly like russia that's for sure that this is ratings this ratings raiser but all right. that was c.n.n. medical producer jon bon a field in the rest of the video john goes on the wax poetic on the lack of hard evidence of russian hacking and.
