5:07 am
towards the syrian government it also turns out the o.p.c. w. didn't even visit the site of the alleged attack. on investments. we've been waiting for this for months in a village province back in april the chemical attack triggered all kinds of accusations and allegations but not many answers but now we have the seventy eight page report from the un chemical weapons watchdog so did we get those answers first of all the investigators never actually visited the site of the chemical weapons attack in question the elite province where the attack took place is not in an area under the control of the government so it wasn't safe to go there and that raises another question u.n. officials said the report was carried out in full compliance with the guidelines but the guidelines clearly state that they must visit the site where it happened so their conclusions were based on interviews they did with people claiming to be victims as well as samples they received from n.g.o.s like the white helmets
5:08 am
a group with a dubious reputation now the report doesn't even give a hint as to how the chemical agent was dispersed this lack of information prompted a strong response from russia's foreign minister at the news that supposedly should he built in a zation for the prohibition of chemical weapons has been absent unintelligibly it refused to go to the scene of the incident and did not provide any information yesterday the issued a report it says the not convinced that sun and gas which was apparently found was dropped by a bomb from they don't know where the son came from and the it throughout these months tensions have been inflamed now the report was never intended to establish who carried out the attack that's being left to another group of investigators but this hasn't stopped western leaders from reeling in their old mantra absent the finger points at the sad regime and we've got a european council coming up where we will drive on with the u.k.
5:09 am
campaign to impose sanctions on those responsible the us has already brought out sanctions on three hundred people as a result of this people who drop chemical weapons. all innocent people should be held to account we know that assad has used chemical weapons on his own people and he's done that repeatedly including it states in the world that including women and children destruction and we have all seen that we've all seen the video and there is no debate about that so once again we've got more questions and no definitive answer but for some people that just doesn't matter caleb r.t. washington d.c. we discussed the findings of the report with russia's representative to the un's nuclear watchdog. there are expressions in the suit like the team was on the able to all the team they will all of these the daunting force of all the were unable

5:11 am
a bit of samples but you can see why somebody more to be in. there and they just absolutely no evidence cole it will deal with. new german legislation branding both fake news and online terrorist propaganda as criminal activity has been hit with a storm of criticism not least in the country's parliament the green party for example says social media firms may overregulate doesn't violating people's freedom of expression to potentially avoid any threat of paying billions of euros in fines ok partridge has details. germany has approved a bill to find social media networks up to fifty million euros if they fail to remove what's described as all. the asli illegal content hate speech terrorist propaganda and defamatory fake news freedom of speech and criminal begins the initiative ends the internet law of the jungle fine flagging up terrorist
5:12 am
propaganda is fairly obvious but determining what's hate speech and the truth behind media outlets accused of fake news is anything but ever wonder what fic muses i am not going to give you a portion you are fake doos headlines and soon. the guardian very fake to this whole notion of election voting fraud this is fake news doesn't today fake sites boortz trolls can falsify a viewpoint the russian government also created and spread fake news and conspiracies across the social media landscape as the hate speech different countries have different laws what germany might consider hate another nation might consider opinion the german bill offers this guideline social platforms have to ban what obviously illegal but obvious for whom germany is bill is part of a wider trend an austrian court ordered facebook to remove hate speech posts against one of the country's politicians not only in austria but worldwide and
5:13 am
canada's top court ruled google can remove entire websites from its global search engines following one complex case so it seems in this online age borders don't matter the boundaries still do and when some government seek to impose their own lore on the internet there disregarding other borders with their own version of what's obviously illegal the new rules mean companies will have twenty four hours to remove the content of facebook has already hiring more people to check flag posts but with billions of users there are concerns that web giants in general may be overwhelmed by complaints we reached out to facebook for comment the company told us legislation is the wrong way to fight online hate speech with regulation threatening to remove content that is not actually illegal to discuss the issue with mattel your book i mean a political activist group shout out u.k. he believes that all risks leading to censorship. everywhere you look on the internet there is how each beat hate speech for defamation law and those kind of
5:14 am
things but there is a problem when you start to try and tell private enterprise corporations to try and do it and then there's also this issue that you've got to find what it is you know for someone hate speech may be actually true for all vice versa you know how do you define what actually is a reality and every single newspaper or news network on the sun has a slant of some kind or another part of the problem where you've got a government which is essentially trying to do that for the people who are saying well this is this we don't regard as new so we're going to get rid of that for you are going to get rid of then you need to watch this kind of news and i look at it only fru fru this kind of lens now becomes quite dangerous eyes essentially censorship you can call it regulation you can call it whatever you want but the reality is essentially a ship because you are censoring a certain point of view or a certain set of knew when i was a she just because you don't deem them as as fair all or factually correct the establishment is worried about the internet in the internet is this one place where
5:15 am
everybody everybody in the world can essentially have a voice they see that as as the centralized they see it as almost anarchic and for that i think it scares them. another case of police brutality has been making headlines in america is after a video in most of an officer in atlanta beating a suspect he claimed was about to smoke a crack pipe however no drug or power for nearly a was of a found on the victim i should warn you you may find the following footage disturbing. was. incident happened just over a week ago video shows the officer punching the back of the man's head while he's being held down the police report into the incident claims the suspect had resisted arrest for possessing a crack pipe now atlanta's police chief says the situation was avoidable the officer has been placed on administrative leave for twenty days but activists say
5:16 am
that's disrespectful to the victim. twenty days a suspension certainly kicks justice in the eye and definitely is a insult to the victim the officers alleging that they saw our our client but to smoke crack however during the all gz cation and even that there was never any narcotics or no crack cocaine follow and i think it's important to note that this officer has a history and reputation on beating on people in the also port he said that they tried to use a taser and so when you use a taser to be in it was deemed not effective what makes you think that your hands are sufficient that makes no sense and so there's a lot of inconsistencies i don't accuracies with the police officer's testimony and what was in the report and so the video speaks for itself. incidents of police brutality are increasingly being caught on camera. i
5:17 am
thought. the right thing. or you. know you can see right here. this is a culture that happens in policing and it must be addressed a lot of times along force when they have them versus us mentality or we're above or better than most people like you know when it as it pertains to law and so long . fauresmith officers are not law they don't get to be so become the judge the jury and execute right that's not their job their job is to enforce the law the chief of police is their responsibility to come out and say hey we got it wrong but we're willing to correct the. u.s. envoy to the u.n. make some rather unflattering remarks about iran that's in the mix of your stories after a short break. one
5:18 am
of the biggest challenges that any investigators face in dealing with. attribution who did it what did it come from and as we've seen with many of these attacks i mean you've mentioned one across the recent won't run somewhere it's still unclear where that originated from so our clear message to government is to work together
5:19 am
around the world to minimize this risk to grow those relationships and make sure that diplomacy is the key to everything. twenty past her and most of the u.s. ambassador to the united nations nikki haley has compared iran to a school this in remarks about the country's nuclear disarmament. the topic of iranian regime's compliance with its international obligations reminds me of the fable of the scorpion and the frog. the scorpion asked the frog for a ride across the river the frog quite rationally asked how do i know you won't sting me and the scorpion replies because it would kill both of us we'd both drown . so the frog is convinced he lets the scorpion get on its back and starts across the river but sure enough midway through the scorpion stings him with his
5:20 am
last breath the frog asks why and the scorpion replies because it's in my nature. the secretary general's report is filled with devastating evidence of the nature of the iranian regime when we're talking about international agreements and enforcement and when we're talking about the potential of prosecuting through military means or the like these little metaphorical parable references lose their quaintness this is serious business here so when it comes to international diplomacy but it comes with the possibility of sanctions when it comes to the possibility theoretically of war i would prefer lay off the metaphor of the parable and the simile and let's be very very clear and also never overreact always look for
5:21 am
a peaceful peaceful interpretation and a peaceful outcome i hope one is not of the first time the top american officials of use this type of rhetoric when describing other nations of the cia's former director james clapper has been fairly outspoken in the past about the russians and they were supposed to genetics. the historical practices of the russians who typically almost genetically driven to co-opt. penetrate. to gain favor whatever is there any reason to believe that russia is not continuing to attempt to or to infiltrate u.s. political organizations individuals all of. you little think it's in their d.n.a. . it's critical of u.s. policies to target it with such rhetoric not only abroad but inside america as well for example one of the country's most prominent authors on philosophy intellectuals
5:22 am
and no i'm chomsky explain analogy america how the anti americanism label is used by politicians. suddenly critics of american empire or american capitalism got tarred with this anti americanism you know american is a very interesting concept it's a concept that only exists to turn states in the soviet union old soviet union you could be condemned for being in the soviet in the brazilian military dictatorship you could be brazilian but aside from the united states i don't know of any other. to overturn or in a third country with the concept even exist it's a very striking country concept if you're critical of policy you're anti american and actually this is an interesting political origin. who is the ultimate also medieval in the bible the cold the prophet. elijah to him and asked
5:23 am
him why he is hater of israel meaning condemning the evil that basic concept authority if you challenge authority you're opposed to the society culture community and so on. and the full interview i know i'm trying to touch on a number of topics on the program as later on saturday on r.t. america and off the bat available the dots he taught. but i despite a disastrous showing in the general election the pritish prime minister has stood for rejecting calls for her to quit so a group of activists decided to get coverage went through facebook their range the event cold to reset may's leaving drinks it was supposed to take place in a small london pub but off the thousands signed up the event was moved to a bigger venue us in james's park. and i see
5:24 am
a check and i went to meet the people hoping to guide me to the. exit door. well we're to gathering that stuff to reset means leaving drinks which obviously is an imaginary events where people have gathered to celebrate the british prime minister leaving downing street and while it's clear that's theresa may has indicated that she's not going anywhere the people gathering here are saying it's time for her to go to resign my still still prime minister but at the end of the day we might as well so celebrate the fact that. she you know she's very much we couldn't she called achieve the things she wanted to achieve in this soft snap general election which is actually come a blunder in the face i just think that she doesn't make any and i think that i particularly like t. believe in and that's good for the person i think that she's just protecting one very secure site and people kind of richer people think that she should go and so
5:25 am
we just have. a long. well i don't think she will but i think it's important people come together. in a situation that is really all for which he was the biggest mistake. because obviously there have been some several. lack of compassion. on so many levels compassion and understanding the general populace of. germany will face off in the final of the football confederations cup and some people spoke on sunday at a news conference ahead of the game for president gianni infantino said the tournament have been a great success despite gloomy predictions from so. confederations cup here in russia in the form of a news because on sochi moscow and some peters work has been
5:26 am
a great success we have been hearing before this confederation cup a lot of. problems about a lot of problems that we would experience here in russia we were hearing about violence about incidents about holy guns we had nothing we had no incidents i can just tell you that if a problematic tournament looks like this tournament well then they want to have many of these problematic tournament's going ahead and we are covering all the action both on and off the pitch with neil harvey and stan collymore joining us from some petersburg just one of the four host cities of the tournament are to join us if we can saturday evening moscow time with the latest live and i head to our website dot com for more details and updates. all right well the growing numbers of quote told refugees are coming to mexico from america the kaiser report explains why next.
5:27 am
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. mike du made over twenty million dollars last year more than one thousand times the average wal-mart associate. with all due respect i have to say i don't think that's right. is that just you know a free market works. people went from pretty simple financial lives pre nine hundred eighty to the point now where people are the just totally submerged in their financial accounts and they're all in debt and what exactly devoid society
5:28 am
from the whatever the government try to do both nicely maybe. it might be making things worse. by saying this is not how capitalism works this is all capitalism goes hopelessly disastrously wrong here's what people have been saying about rejected in the us and it's full on awesome well we'll show i go out of my way to lunch you know what it is that really packs a punch oh yeah it's the john oliver of r t america is doing the same. apparently better than two thousand and six and see people you never heard of love redacted tonight the president of the world bank oh. i'm going to write me seriously send us an e-mail.
5:29 am
i am ask us or this is the kaiser report as we've been saying for quite some time the problem with a really low interest rates engineer to move money from savers just speculate as a bank bailout is that it encourages all kinds of old gobblers to model list. activities right stacy well you kind of made up a new word there mana ballistic on the stick which sounds kind of like cannibalistic and monopolistic i suppose like a ballistic like a missile like a model ballistic is like the weaponization of monopolization either way we've come up with some ingenious ideas here and kaiser where we're still in mexico city and news continues to happen north of the border however and we're going to look at some headlines from there and it actually has one of your favorite words while we're down here in mexico and that is eat max loves to eat his mexican food he loves.
