so. coming up on our t.v. president donald trump and russian president vladimir putin at their first in person meeting agree to a regional ceasefire in syria at the g. twenty summit. and protests from the g. twenty rage on injuring as many as one hundred sixty police officers as police use water cannons to disperse rowdy protesters for a second day in a row. after months of reporting on alleged russian meddling in the u.s. election using unnamed sources c.n.n. seems to be changing its tune towards anonymity.
5:01 pm
it's friday july seventh five pm in washington d.c. i'm in illinois and you're watching our to america. russia and the u.s. have agreed now to a stablish a face fire in three key areas of syria the announcement was made by russia's foreign minister sergei lavrov following a two hour long meeting between vladimir putin and donald trump on the sidelines of the g. twenty summit and yes it was sort of a lot on the wilsons the russia the u.s. and let's have reached a cease fire agreement for syria to cease fire will come into effect in three areas there are. it will come into force and there's not. so much time the u.s. and russia have committed to monitoring the sushma on the shooting humanitarian access to the areas initially as soon as you know these you'll be ensured by russian troops and it's in close cooperation for us. our very own eliot to try to go has the latest from the g.
5:02 pm
twenty there in hamburg but a friday it's been for mr trollop and mr putin at the g twenty summit here in hamburg they finally met and talked about three times longer than we both had ministrations expected when it was finally over their meeting that lasted for more than two hours the journalists all of us here were of course great for the details and the person who gave us those details first of all was foreign minister sergei lavrov he was the one who shed light and who announced that breakthrough cease fire now you may be skeptical about that breakthrough fair enough cease fires serious cease fires that were struck by russia and the u.s. by far not a success story not a history of success in this case of course there's always issues with the monitoring of how things are implemented if. you look. at the
5:03 pm
last thing. these were the guys who didn't even leave. donald trump a chance to bring up the issue of russian election interference just before that because when they were asked to leave the room of the u.s. journalist i guess they were screaming in english that's what they said these were questions and i can tell you that rex tillerson who was also there he told us that actually the thing that mr trump opened the discussions with was the issues the concerns of the american people over allegations of russian hacking now after that we heard from certain lavrov who told the media that russia's take on the issue hasn't changed take a listen. and when it happens when you switch or if you have a new side this comes in has been blown out. and that's been admitted by those
5:04 pm
involved accusations have been around for many months but no evidence has been provided to trump says that putin denied any involvement in the u.s. election and he accepts that. a lot are note here's something else for you that we've heard from u.s. secretary of state rice still are saying explain to us why it took mr poe and mr trump soul all the discussions that they've had at the g twenty summit today that there was so much to talk about all these issues. just about everything got touched on to one degree or another and i think there was just such a level of engagement and exchange need to want to want to stop channel times i had to remind the president before sticking their heads in the door and i think maybe this isn't the first lady of one point to see if she could get us out of there and
5:05 pm
i didn't work either take my word to president donald trump will be under a lot of pressure back home for what rights. orson called a truce chemistry between the presidents of russia and the us. throughout the g twenty r.t. has brought you some of the most and spiteful and up to date analysis here are just a few of our experts and commentators discussing the significance of the g. twenty and today's meeting between presidents trump and two thousand but you do get snow angry groups from the far right sought after anarchist groups or you remember the part of mine half gang in germany back in the one nine hundred sixty we're doing about it you got to concentrate on those that are coming out there smack buildings or even in some cases to kill you're seeing two leaders and we must remember two leaders who have the fate of the world in their hands they both have the largest nuclear military arsenal is on the planet they both have the ability to
5:06 pm
destroy the earth obviously context in which they speak to each other very different than the context that say any western european leader might have who still believes in the great idealism of a neo liberal globalized world and trump is under pressure from the security force forces and from his own party republicans to take a rather harder line on putin than he was saying his campaign to be president the americans have very few cards to play here because they all they can do is to increase sanctions and sanctions will not deflect russia away from its policies president putin one could say is in a stronger position because he's in place if you like russia is the dominant european power in syria in syria and iraq and the middle east now these guys are serious they went in trying to make progress they don't going to waste time and i bet they didn't even pay any attention to how long the meeting last but the fact
5:07 pm
that we're a little bit beyond two hours i think shows that they're anxious to work with one another on the pretext of this meeting was that there is ignalina judgment on both sides that relations are not good but there was a goal on both sides to try to make things better despite all the political noise that might surround it. secretary of state rex tillerson said presidents trump and putin talked about syria north korea and nato and that trump brought up election interference twice to discuss this historic meeting i was joined earlier by former cia analyst and writer of a recent article called what trump can expect from putin ray mcgovern take a look. this will be a matter of trust and it's going to be pretty soon when we find out whether poutine can trust that trump has enough power not to be subverted not to be do you think distort his history his test to president trump his first test you know
5:08 pm
it is because you know they've come to this agreement now will air force bomb syrian army positions that's what they did last time and if they don't then i think there's a measure of trust that begins to grows with respect to putin of course trusts is what what the name of the game is the rest of the things that trump looks that putin looks at and not very reassuring because it does look very much as though trump is not in control he can't even control his own ambassadors to the united nations who is trying to act like johnny olson rogue gone a little rogue we're talking about nikki haley there and now we're out i want to move over to your essay because you said that putin would would ask trump about why the u.s. is essentially just and circling russia with anti-ballistic missile systems and we don't know for a fact if that was discussed but tell us in in your opinion why the u.s. is taking such measures. well i think that the russians opinion is the most
5:09 pm
important one and the only conclusion that they can draw is that we are trying to encircle it both in europe and for the far east and so that will be a real bone of contention until this address now the good news is that even before they met putin said you know these kinds of personal meetings are needed because the money is that were used it's very strong not only necessary but literally means you can't get around doing it it's absolutely essential ok so now that these meetings have begun it's completely possible that they will commission their subordinates to work out these other arrangements and syria has already been worked out and we'll see how the ukraine which they also discussed how korea feels discussed and checking things checking the boxes as they go well the big thing is that they're they're speaking you know got
5:10 pm
a bunch of you know we talked with reagan he complained yesterday in an article he wrote he said you know they wouldn't let reagan meet with me for a long time but finally he didn't listen to them and he came and we had constructive proposals and so today we had almost controlled agreement so this is a good sign it just comes relate he says i've got a bunch of and he's right it's the month that they meet together and discuss these issues i'm very glad that you brought up the former president mikhail gorbachev because i want to talk about nato since they had just added the twenty ninth member montenegro thereby expanding nato eastward right up against the russian border conducting military nato military exercises along the border this breaks that gentlemen's agreement from the early ninety's between then soviet union russia and and secretary of state james baker during the. german unification talks there was
5:11 pm
no official treaty as you know but for you know there are thousands of meeting minutes and memos transcripts that suggested that it corroborates that that there was this gentleman's agreement so doesn't this give lattimer put in a valid complaint or concern to address with president trawled you know the complaint is on the record for a long time home with colin who just two weeks ago in his his own records as chancellor of germany had that noted so you know that's a real bone of contention and it is indeed why puting self admitted lee was really interested in getting crimea back under the fold he said nato you know that was bad enough but crimea where our naval bases are only woman would report that was even more important in my green to accept crimea back to
5:12 pm
russia i mean is this sort of like a tit for tat then if the u.s. is doing these the encircling with the anti-ballistic missile systems and then then crimea happens and then montenegro has happened i feel like we're kind of playing ping pong here. well months or do you grow as sort of like the twenty ninth right now is maybe twelve when the berlin wall fell they were twelve now they're twenty and they're all to the east of germany ok so that was a broken promise poutine himself said just a couple days ago we got to write these things down no really he said this is a major mistake to go to show me right trusting the united states that's big. and protests continue across the city of hamburg today dozens of police officers have now been injured since the protests started and dozens of protesters have been arrested or detained our very own correspondent peter oliver has the latest from the ground there in hamburg this is the way it looks here and how this evening on
5:13 pm
friday we're in a period of relative calm a series of fire isn't quite violent clashes between between trick demonstrators on the police were going on in this very area you can see a water cannon just over my shoulder here i can tell you that from where i'm stood i can see maybe five of those water cannon these two up ahead taking care of that end of the intersection about four hundred meters up this way is another intersection where there are three to four more water cannon up there as well and that's where there was a number of fires that were taking place and we saw some quite dramatic footage from there also the building over my left shoulder where construction is taking place a number of demonstrators climbing up that the police them back still and this is just continuing a cycle that we've seen pretty much for the last twenty four hours whereby demonstrators gather until they have a critical mass the police move in and then tensions rise then ultimately fall to
5:14 pm
the sr and the police respond with pepper spray they respond with water cannon until they disperse those demonstrators and then they move to another part of the city this is all part of the the problem of trying to bring some form of peace spike to how member because it's such a big safety it off of so many different streets that people can can run down and they're all of lots of police here but they can only be so many because there's also really a lot of demonstrators and as well some of those have come to protest however there are a coal hard core group that have come just to cause trouble and looking for a fight now we've seen some pictures from friday. warning of quite shocking scenes of a group of what's known as a black bloc really solid line leftist groups marching through the streets of homburg one part of the team breaking windows of cars another part of the team putting flares into those cars and setting fire to them quite shocking scenes of.
5:15 pm
germany's second biggest city one of the busiest cities in europe to see this on a normal street cars are rotting into flame huge plumes of smoke soaring into the morning sky and it's being pretty much like for the last twenty four hours it would be a hard push not to bet that we're going to see it go on for at least another twenty four hours behind even longer because it shows no sign of lets up at the moment it's really a game of cat and mouse between demonstrates is on the police and it's being played out in full on the stage that is the streets of book. with the news of a potential cease fire new white is being shed on u.s. actions in syria which have recently raised the eyebrows of many people in april and may of this year the united states targeted syrian forces near the south eastern hour walid border crossing in al town claiming they posed a threat to u.s. backed forces in the region as sharmeen are wanting reports in the american
5:16 pm
conservative she said since may eighteenth when the u.s. airstrikes targeted syrian forces and their vehicles approaching american forces have shot down two syrian drones and fired on allied syrian troops several times each time citing self defense in that same period however it doesn't appear that the out based u.s. backed militants have even once engaged in combat with isis now are to correspondent on your part tell talk to sharmeen to ask her how the u.s. actions don't seem to align with their stated goals the u.s. declarative ject in syria is to write and state. this is not a legal objective since the united states military has not been invited into syria for this fight by the the central syrian government who is the only authority that can that can allow foreign troops to fight in their country there are despite this
5:17 pm
stated objective there are clearly hidden objectives that we've been able to identify as the fight continues because the u.s. has on many occasions looked the other way let me just say the u.s. led coalition is look the other way when isis has has taken territory inside syria most prominently when isis troops just marched across from over the iraqi border into syria and occupied palmira a few years ago so some of these objectives that we're identifying and are becoming more clear are such one is to create a sort of buffer area between syria and israel and jordan which is in the interests of the israeli state the second would be i think to support their allies in the north and the north east of syria the kurds who have been funded
5:18 pm
trained and supported by u.s. forces for much of the last few years and to help them potentially create a western kurdistan. a. landmass that potentially would even link up with with the kurdish territory in on the east of iraq and the third. objective that we're starting that's really starting to manifest in recent u.s. military actions in syria is holding the syrian iraqi border. and the most recent incidents between the syrian. forces and the u.s. military are in fact in a major border crossing crossing on the south east of the country there are three main border highways that cross from iraq syria into iraq the top most one is now occupied by kurdish forces u.s.
5:19 pm
backed forces the middle of the middle area who are who come out areas we've been hearing about in the news a bit is occupied by isis it's that southern border that the syrian forces had made major headway in recently and had taken most of that highway back until u.s. coalition forces entrenched themselves in a border garrison or garrison or town called close to the iraqi border and from there the u.s. coalition forces have several times shot at and launched strikes on syria no i'd forces and have also in the last month or so she shot down two syrian drones as you mentioned the u.s. being in syria in the first place with the goal of fighting the islamic state is not seen as a legitimate one by the syrian government statistically who is fighting the islamic
5:20 pm
state in syria. a very interesting question because if you look at western narratives on who is fighting isis this you rarely ever hear that syrian forces are engaged in battle with this terrorist group and when they do it's often not reported or undermined somehow in the report in fact what's very interesting is just a few months ago a major possibly the major u.k. british security and defer defense analyst firm i.h.s. market. issued a study that showed that in the last twelve months it has been primarily syrian government and allied forces that have been fighting isis they give specific numbers for this forty three percent of battles against isis have
5:21 pm
been with the syrian government and its allied forces only seventeen percent are with the s.d.f. the syrian democratic forces who are the mostly kurdish u.s. backed forces in the north of the country so very specific geographic location and the rest of the balance of the fight with isis are between isis and other sunni militant groups who are basically fighting over territory so you know here we have this last twelve month period which is the period in which isis has suffered most territorial losses and most defeats the primary the the primary forces in gage in battle with isis during this period are syrian forces and their allied troops. a new change in policy the pentagon will delay immediately releasing the names of u.s. soldiers killed in action in afghanistan but change comes after the name of a nineteen year old serviceman was released forty eight hours after his death in
5:22 pm
the country earlier this month previously the pentagon released the service member's name age rank and other information within a twenty four hour window the change comes as the new administration struggles to decide on military strategy in the war ravaged country the white house has sent a memo to national security advisor mcmaster limiting the amount of additional forces to be sent to afghanistan down to thirty nine hundred there are currently just under nine thousand troops in the country. wiki leaks continues to release its vault seven documents on the cia's cyber operations this time it describes a tool which is capable of stealing logons passwords and information of windows and even linux users without any physical effect on the hard drive and this one has a surprising hollywood reference artie's alexy or chef he has the report. breaking news a member of the cia cyber spying department is a massive star wars fan that's according to the latest old seven released by the
5:23 pm
week at least those who are well acquainted with the star wars universe would definitely know bostons members of galactic republic who famously acquired intelligence about the location of the second death star during the battle of the indoor which enabled the rebel alliance to destroy the battle station and now meet the cia cyber tool with the same name and spy which can infiltrate secure windows networks to steal passwords and data delete cia document describes the tool as the one targeting the s.s.h. client program x. shell and stealing user credentials or any files of documents transferred within the network for those who don't know s.s.h. is a protocol for operating that work services securely and is often used in corporate networks or private organizations for secure access file transfer and managing computer networks now both on the spy will exfiltrate stolen credentials with the fire and collect channel and by using it both and spy never touches a physical hard drive and that's where the star wars analogies pop up in the cia
5:24 pm
document which say many boston spies will die to bring you this information so remember their sacrifice it goes on to say in the known that botham spy as the prototype from star wars would not destroy the death star nor would it detects traps laid by the emperor to destroy the rebel fleets and even better in the troubleshooting section that has this conversation i went to destroy the death star with the information obtained by both and spy but the empires and fleet warp in and the shield generators are not down on the death star what gives and the answer was i told you it would be a trap that's on you now another tool with a fantastic name also revealed by vault seven release is grif although this one has no star wars analgesia analogy this still does the same thing as botham spy but with linux platforms which are generally considered to be even more secure than windows but you know. nothing is too secure for the cia as this one can not only capture use the logans but allow the agency to penetrate the networks too in
5:25 pm
a nutshell as seen in this example greaseball khan can acquire just about anything from a linux user now this release is just the latest one in the old seven series by we get leaks lifting a curtain on the cyber capabilities of the cia but the website is promising more and more of those. artsy reporting from washington d.c. and new study shows that hillary clinton lost the twenty six thousand presidential election because voters in swing states saw her as a pro-war candidate the study claims the counties with a high level of military casualties and were veterans voted for trump expressing their anger with politicians in washington and calling for a change to talk more about the surprising findings are joined now by one of the study authors francis shen associate professor at the university of minnesota law school professor thanks for being with us today thanks for having me first how did
5:26 pm
you conduct your your study and how do you explain your findings that clinton lost because war weary communities in pennsylvania wisconsin and minnesota saw her as as pro-war. you know we looked at all states of those three michigan wisconsin and pennsylvania you know we focused on but we actually did a study of every state and in fact every county over three thousand counties and we were interested to see if counties that had experienced a greater or casualty rate were more likely to vote for. trump than they had been for romney four years ago in other words could trump capture some of those voters and our answer is yes he could and one of the findings in your study attributes donald trump's victory last year to communities hit hardest specifically by those military casualties and that were actually about i guess being ignored by it by political leaders that's especially interesting because trump mentioned many times
5:27 pm
during the campaign that he would quote bomb the hell out of isis until they were gone so can you explain why voters chose trump over clinton if this is the case when historically republicans are more likely to be war hawks than democrats. great question and you know we've actually done some previous studies that have found that effect where in two thousand and six after bush brought us into iraq voters were very war weary and voted against in those midterm elections a lot of republican politicians you know an interesting hat thing happened over the obama presidency although he said no more stupid wars in fact there were many more deaths in afghanistan and what we think happened is that most of america doesn't remember doesn't really know that a war continues to go on but some communities do because those communities are seeing their soldiers returning wounded or dead and it is those communities we think which are more rural less educated and lower on the social economic scale that we think were more amenable to trump's message of. pulling back from sending
5:28 pm
our troops overseas can you give us a little more specifics on which states or counties and tell us about those voters what it what what do they look like. you know we don't have data on the individual voters but we did drill down to each of the three thousand plus counties and i can tell you what those communities look like they are less educated so you have less elites educated there they are more rural so it's more likely that those who serve in the military and those who end up paying the ultimate sacrifice are coming from more rural parts of states and then they also have lower incomes and probably the economic prospects there are a little bit less so this kind of paints a picture of where. not everyone but more of our military men and women are coming from and serving and what happens is in iraq and afghanistan over these now over
5:29 pm
a decade worth of war it is those communities that are seeing their young men and young women return with wounds and and dying it is those communities that that trump really focused on a lot in is rhetoric and in his campaign tactics at towns like in those smaller rural communities that the war was actually kind of brought home in that sense. and according to your study it also showed that americans are actually more interested in foreign policy than that and i think a lot of people have rethought can you expand on that a little bit. sure you know we have had a lot of explanations for why trump won in two thousand and sixteen and clearly there are a lot of factors but we were surprised my co-author kreiter and i that this really hadn't been part of the narrative so you know we've heard a lot about. the f.b.i. investigation. a lot about economic issues and race issues we haven't heard a lot about the war and that's really different from some of the earlier elections
5:30 pm
so what obama was elected in two thousand and eight a dominant narrative was we want a candidate who's going to get us out of iraq and afghanistan who's going at least out of iraq it's going to change our military focus we didn't hear that much this past time and i think that. the dominant narrative in some of the media has missed this and i think i'll tell you why i think part of it is that i think that a lot of those journalists and their communities there are not the same communities where others have experienced the war more directly and you know real real briefly because i'm out of time how do you think your findings can be applied to future campaigns two simple ways one is i think that the antiwar or at least be very careful about expanding our military adventurism i think that may be a political winner both in twenty eighteen and twenty twenty and i'd recruit candidates are neither side who are sensitive to that frances shand associate
5:31 pm
professor at university of minnesota law school thank you so much for sharing your expertise with us thanks so much have a great day and. coming up later on our team hate crime spike in california chicago mayor rahm emanuel is pushing a new high school graduation requirements and those stories coming up in our race in america segment right after this break stay with us. there's a real irony going. to look a little finger at a response when the when the it's always alerts what is the most noise seen in serials. the baltimore area now the wholesale surveillance is c o u m o meanwhile goes in and scoop two sizes that instructor has used to sell something a little while ago he saw the story as it's garbage and real. but politicians do something to. put themselves on the line. to get accepted or
5:32 pm
rejected. so when you want to express. something wanted. to try to be close to see what the full story of the whole can't be good. i'm interested in the lawyers at the. place. i think the average viewer just after watching a couple of segments understands that we're telling stories that our critics can't tell me you know why because their advertisers more let them. in order to create change you have to be honest you have to tell the truth parties able to do that every story is built on going after the back story to what's really happening out there to the american what's happening when a corporation makes
5:33 pm
a pharmaceutical chills people when a company in the environmental business ends up polluting a river that causes cancer and other illnesses they put all the health risk all the dangers out to the american public those are stories that we tell every week and you know what they're working. you're now watching race in america let's start on the west coast where hate crimes are spiking for a second year in a row in california a new report shows african-americans in latino americans are targeted the most for heat crimes in the state for more on the story we go live now to our to correspondent for cupid santos in los angeles bridgette over the past year how much have hate crimes increased actually in california over the last year hate crimes
5:34 pm
overall have increased by over eleven percent but those hate crimes that are motivated by race went about twenty one percent in the last year and as you mentioned african-americans and latinos find themselves at the top of the list of groups that are targeted now in california african-americans get the most hate crimes against them accounting for about thirty one percent of all hate crimes in the state since two thousand and seven so those are the latest numbers here for this most recent report ashley byrd you know i'm really curious to know what is the reason exactly for this uptick. so right now it's a little bit unclear now civil rights groups say that it could likely have to do with president trump's inflammatory rhetoric towards specific ethnic groups as well has his anti immigrant rhetoric but local police enforcement say that they believe there's an uptick due to the fact that they say more people are reporting hate crimes but this completely contradicts the most recent federal data and in fact the
5:35 pm
federal bureau of justice statistics has just released its national crime victimization survey of hate crimes in recent years now the report shows that more than half of all hate crime victims surveyed nationwide fail to report incidents to police when hate crimes were reported assailants were only arrested in ten percent of the cases and nearly half of all victims said that hate crimes committed against them were motivated by racial bias now most hate crimes committed were violent including sexual assault aggravated assault and or robbery where other hate crimes include things like verbal abuse vandalism intimidation and even murder and many people say that they have failed to report hate crimes against them because they don't believe that it will get any action they say that they don't think it's important enough so unfortunately the numbers here are likely very conservative due to underreporting not only by people who have been victimized but also local law enforcement agencies all across the nation in fact thousands of them are failing to
5:36 pm
report their reports of a legit and confirmed hate crimes to the f.b.i. actually like you've said i also have heard from people that it seems to be an uptick in these hate crimes under a trump presidency but hopefully in the near future we'll see a solution to this problem thank you so much for gita correspondent brigida santas . now to the three of chicago where mayor rahm emanuel has proposed a new public high school graduation requirement requirement starting in two thousand and twenty chicago will become the. first city to demand that high school seniors might show proof of a job or college acceptance before graduating if students cannot show proof of what they will be doing upon graduation they will have the option of either enrolling in the military taking a gap year or having their high school diploma with health minister critical of the mangled rule taking effect and three years arguing this will do more harm than good
5:37 pm
joining me to discuss this further is with their mercer education advocate and a lawyer thank you so much for joining us luther now this new rule that rahm emanuel is proposing on these high school seniors in your opinion is this fair a low actually thank you for having me i think one of the challenges that we see going forward is being more intentional and in goal setting for young youth and i think one of the things that the mangos play is trying to do is answer that question how do we best prepare youth for the challenges of going out into the world in the twenty first century and what are the things within the system can we do in order to affect that change i want to read you a quote from karen lewis the president of the chicago teachers union who brings up just what you said she said quote it sounds good on paper but the problem is that when you've cut the number of counselors in schools when you've cut the kind of services that kids need who is going to do this work as we know many chicago schools they are overcrowded and just last year of
5:38 pm
a large number of teachers were laid off so are chicago's students being prepared anough to be able to even be concerned about their future. i think i think that question is a good one and i think the way in which we can approach it is this in twenty twenty this was when it will be implemented so we have three years to really look at what are the supports that are needed in the system in order to actually make this an effective program one of the things i think that has been pointed out it was actually done in twenty fifteen it was called closed a belief gap and they looked at a charter school in chicago that was requiring an intercept letter in the same way they rob a man who was pushing this and they saw that in the process of this intentional goal setting that they needed to increase the number of counsellors and they went i think for six counselors one counselor for seventy students i think nationwide at that time there was one for every four hundred fifty students there was a need to increase those counselors in order to get the proper guidance for the
5:39 pm
execution of the program and they saw great results and so i think there's going to have to be an investment made by chicago public schools in order for this to actually be a successful program and if that investment is not made karen lewis also has said this could force kids into poverty would you agree with that was there. i'm not quite sure what she may mean by forcing them into poverty some of these the reason for this program is to try to raise children out of poverty some of these kids are very high risk they're in their backgrounds may support the idea that some of the guidance that some kids traditionally get for going into a life after high school some of them are not getting so i think the mayor is trying to find a way to help those school those kids there in schools that are high risk to have a goal set for them in order for them to have opportunity and success later on in life now you say a lot of these students are high risk and they live in communities where they
5:40 pm
aren't being afforded the opportunities that they need to succeed what do you think these students will resort to if they're not able to provide acceptance letters to college or to jobs and or if they don't want to enroll in the military and their diploma is was held what do you think they're going to do. well i think you mentioned at the top of the hour. the top of the segment that you were looking at what are the options dobson's or jobs jobs or the job offer the option is a gap year a job is. an opportunity to to your school a four year school but there seems to be a program already in place in chicago that allows for students to be automatically accepted upon graduation into the community college system so i think there are enough options that support the outcome of what the program is trying to produce all right now a lot of people would disagree with you and they say that this rule is unfair that
5:41 pm
some of these community colleges aren't even going to prepare students for the real world because there aren't the right professors there to teach these kids what they need to learn and order to be successful now and your opinion on what could be if anything a better solution for these students. what i think right now around the country. in specifically in chicago we're facing issues around teachers having the best teachers for our students we're facing the issue are our resources materials in schools poverty in the impact of poverty so we really have a solution problem that we need to address immediately and that is having a collective conversation on all the variables all the environmental circumstances that affect a child's learning and then really work towards issuing programs either like this or others that really work to answer the critical question for that child being able to achieve in the twenty first century all right thank you so much and we've heard that was a luther mercer education advocate and lawyer that set for race in america i'm
5:42 pm

a reddit user and now c.n.n. is being linked to the al qaeda faction al nusra front in syria this is the subject that was explore by my next guest here with author and thinker editor at alter net's grey zone project map women daleth know what he had to say c.n.n. is tends to completely overlook this story and kind of sounds like a wild eyed conspiracy c.n.n. linked to al qaeda but the fact is that c.n.n. for its under cover in serious national hire it contracted the services of a lot of dual kareem was the only american living in al qaeda controlled territory that i know of he is someone who's been referred to by top al qaeda clerics like a bill and hasan he is our media man al-arabiya the state saudi state media organ referred to dual karim as a member of judgement on this or the al qaeda affiliate in syria i don't know if that's true karim has denied it of dual karim's close colleague for his online

organization on the ground news kieffer as uk who is a british citizen who entered syria territory has just had his citizenship stripped the british government has accused him of membership in al-qaeda and it's very clear that abdul karim is close to al qaeda because if you watch any of his videos and his interviews or the interviews he grants since his own media affiliates he is extremely sympathetic to its clerics to its ideology and he at goes it's sectarianism so this was well known when cnn's clarissa ward entered east aleppo and he had lived all kind of controlled territory in twenty sixteen when she contract him why she contract him well that's for her to explain you know. the syrian government and russia they both say that abdul karim cohorts with terrorists

american terrorism analysts criticize him for providing and uncritical english language platform for the jihadists this guy denies his affiliation but there's all this cloud of suspicion around him yet feared and still went ahead and employed him for this documentary should they have been aware of the drama surrounding this man it's almost as if they didn't care and they were seeking access to further the regime change editorial line that dominates all c.n.n. coverage i mean if you tune into jake tapper's the lead every day he's promoting regime change against venezuela north korea syria and any other country can think of that isn't in line with the u.s. so what clarissa ward has consistently done since he's been. working for c.n.n. is infiltrate syria get into rebel held territory and produce these commercials for the rebels started in two thousand and eleven but now the rebels are dominated by

these be jihadi factions and abdul kareem is really one of the only american speaking sorry english speaking videographers who is welcome in these territories he's welcome there because he has a great relationship with al qaeda there's just no disputing that he has a very good relationship what do you think this says about the network it fell for that. it says that the network has absolutely no principles it's completely shameless and it hasn't been telling the american public the truth about who the rebels are and what would come into place c.n.n. and the state department and intelligence service so years who have consistently access is not good for numbers or for achieve their goal. they would be people very much in line with below dual kareen and it's an absolute scandal that c.n.n. has paid money into a kind is media apparatus this is an absolute scandal now imagine how liberal

the attacks on labor or various significant because the labor movement is the one major organization in which the general much of the public the general working public can organize get together to make decisions to even have a educational programs and make that point that it's more than just organizing it was about consciousness a little about building community was awareness and of course now what are we down in the public sector is below ten percent in terms of people who belong to unions and there's a coming attack on the last seat or so the public so that is where we're going to have it pretty soon in the supreme court when a couple of cases are coming up which could prove justify what's called right to work legislation which is another or will isn't the right to work means right to

you're watching our. first during the war. politico just ran an opinion article called good by nonpartisan journalism and good riddance the article talks about how much our media is changing right now under our new president stating the big news is that many of our best journalists seemed in news coverage not just opinion pieces to be moving away from balance and nonpartizanship as it and our media has been so nonpartisan and fair and balanced but now it's just become. in
5:56 pm
a bunch of opinions the article also says reporters editors and producers at legacy journalism organizations have become so eager to dispute the trumpet ministration that they do crazy things like flat out say the president live or like for another example call the president's remarks indefensible that's literally a judgment right to call something indefensible is pure opinion and that's exactly what c.n.n. recently called remarks made by the president so clearly c.n.n. is being completely partisan and this political article is saying this is a new thing and it's becoming the norm the article also says it's a good thing the writer writes an abandonment of the pretense to objectivity is long overdue the article talks about how journalism in the u.s. was born partisan and remained so during much of our history it talks about how dirty journalism was that our founding but that all changed in the one nine hundred thirty s. when lowell thomas began broadcasting over radio and avoided offending both

political groups by playing way down the middle the article says that's when the idea of nonpartisan news was born and it has remained as such until now thanks to the president the article also says that the nonpartisan take on the news has given our news organizations more clout over the years but now it's not serving them so well now nonpartisanship no longer serves journalists especially in the face of the rise of alternative news outlets who can be as nutty and biased as they want and that's work and form so american journalism is becoming more and more partisan going back to its roots now i totally agree that our news is as partisan as it gets and i totally agree that's ok in fact that's all they want from them just admit your part is there and i give them so much more credit instantly but the assertion that partisanship in our media is the new big there. i disagree with that the
