each of the naive. souls find a way to rebuild their lives in the world and. i did some protesters accuse the president of supporting far right extremism after his delayed condemnation of hate groups two days after the deadly violence in charlottesville. emanuel micron's popularity falls faster than any french president ever polling even less now than his predecessor after hundred days in office. and google's accused of censorship after its automated tracking system skewed searches and deletes videos from journalists and groups on you tube.
a.t.m. here in moscow this truce of the fifteenth of august my name is kevin i was very good morning for me welcome to this latest thirty minute news update from r.t. and first that of two days now after these bloody clashes in the u.s. town of charlottesville donald trump has bowed to overwhelming pressure and made a second statement denouncing racism and hate groups he's been under fire for failing to single out the role of white supremacists in saturday's brawls which culminated in a car being driven into a crowd of counter protesters killing one woman we condemn in the strongest possible terms. this egregious display of hatred bigotry and violence on many sites on many. racism is evil and those who cause
violence in its name are criminals and thugs including the k.k.k. neo nazis white supremacists and other hate groups that are repugnant to everything we hold dear as americans nonetheless much of the media still criticized the president for his delayed response leading him to tweet the fake news media will never be satisfied and tweet he then headed to new york where he was met by crowds of protesters outside trump tower accusing him of racism cullom open next looks at how america's political debate is all about labeling these days. one of the chants most frequently used at the protests is no trump no k.k.k. hell fascist usa essentially trump and his supporters are being tarred with the same price as white supremacy.
now the suspect in the horrific charlottesville car ramming was himself a member of the far right but the mayor of the city was very quick to put his blame on the white house and president romney and he was in a lot. i am taking actions to relocate the confederate statues the tragic events in charlottesville today have accelerated the announcement he said look in the mirror and he made a choice in his presidential campaign the folks around with them to you know to go right to the gutter to play our worst prejudices and i think you are seeing a direct line from what happened here this weekend to those choices trump has made it clear with bannan gorka in the white house and the klan in the streets it is now the white supremacists house. the incitement of hatred to the got us here is as real and condemn the whole as the white supremacists you know was tweets the democratic response to the car ramming mirrors the way republicans responded to the
shooting at the congressional baseball practice they blame democrats for stoking up the atmosphere while reality the attack was carried out by a loud republican a that you had an increasing intensity of hostility on the left three percent tension has been building. things since election night the hyperball that vitriol from the left has spurred threats and now action without historical parallel events like today are exactly why we took issue with and why elites glorifying the assassination of a president now most americans liberal conservative or otherwise are not violent however it seems like the leaders of the two major political parties try to make the other half of the electorate look like they are and that seems to be mobilizing people in both camps if you want to start something. and demonize me and i don't you.
do that was yes. thank you. thank you betty. that. was the united states has created a political system in a way to demonizing one side means supporting the other side for many voters those who haven't really learned that much about their party's yet the the solution to this is to reduce some of these impediments to we need a system in which political parties have to fight for their own ideas they have to show why what they believe is good and why it's right and watch an excellent idea. and not just focus on demonizing the other side in a situation in which demonizing either side leads to support for your side that demonize the other side is going to become more popular so matter what your
political outlook is the best strategy seems to be the same generalized demonize it will pop and artsy your. the right wing protest in charlottesville was centered around the removal of a racially controversial monument protest as it managed to pull down the statue of a civil war confederate soldier in the city of durham. ah. them strangers gathered outside the county courthouse to topple the statue something you said you see use of clothing on it of the sort pull the rope bring it to the ground the crowd also chanted slogans such as the revolution no k.k.k. no fascist usa is something i expect reaction we've been hearing. i want to lay blame on the local authorities for allowing these white supremacist groups not their free speech i am all for free speech but to come in with their
weapons their shields is it acceptable in society to be a white supremacist seems to be that's a fundamental principle as to whether these people have a right to do what they do it's legal there is nothing that is against the law in this country for you to a spouse any idea black supremacy black inferiority martian supremacy it's a thought when it turns into violence that's a different story this is called unite the right. here is saying that nobody can hear it absolutely right you're absolutely right it is the way it is larry is the spade goons and you know who's behind what point does free speech and on the philosophy of white or black supremacy at what point does that become racism in an acceptable response is allowed even if it's hateful speech it's hate crimes that are not allowed and hate fridays are done they're not allowed and i would say what the group stated on saturday charlottesville is inciting a riot or merkins came from all over the world whether freely or unfortunately as
slaves but we get along we love one another we have such strong community you and civil society groups there would hate crimes of sorority and says donald trump has been in office. that is just a family right of the bad boys he's our son in law and order you remember the plane literally in the heart of what is a moment i just want to ask you how many facts to back that up because of an important point it's a serious claim is there any evidence to support it oh of course the southern poverty law center keeps track of those very specifically are and the number of hate crimes. word we have it is very sick worst of all. any apple s minnesota and the president saying nothing about the bombing of a mosque here at home the first amendment says as long as you don't hit anybody bernie buddy you're free speech and at the end of somebodies knows hate speech hate
crimes i hate crime of donning of a mob is glad the way it is because there's always going to be haters like this was controlled and you know who did it and you know who's behind this and you know what the goal is it's a call that it's called they ain't a fight i know what you're talking about the stabilizing pitting of white people i guess black people and creating the illusion that diagonal trump because he did not list your particular phraseology. because he left somewhat out even though he added it's daughter and jeff sessions said they hated everything that was hateful that wasn't good enough young talent and i you know is this the mainstream media are here to do one thing or one thing only get rid of this president this was a state liberal we knew right where the police were told to back down to make it as awful as possible. after
a hundred days as the president of france the sharyn seems to have gone from a manual micron somewhat once heralded as the champion of democratic values he is now even more unpopular than his predecessor mexico partridge and what's behind the fall from grace on may the seven for emanuel macross went to paris president of france. his share of the vote was sixty six percent is thirty nine years promised a fresh new era is i am totally for the construction of a new model of governance people do seeing that we need reform we want to do reform so we with the reform we are a movement of profound renovation fast forward one hundred days and across popularity has fallen faster than any french presidents even his predecessor francois a long known as mr unpopular by the end of his presidency because of his record low
ratings was doing better one hundred days in the nosedive in microns popularity came after he said he wanted to reign like the mystical jupiter father of the gods while his first divine intervention was to force his military chief to resign after telling him in public that he macron knows better because he is in charge as you would wish if you near city didn't place you. in another high handed move macro cancelled the traditional bastille day media conference apparently because he regards his views as too deep for the shallow press and when micro wanted to make his wife the first lady with a public salary over three hundred thousand signed a petition against the plan saying they didn't want a queen. so in just one hundred days the darling of french voters and the new face of french politics has lost the love of his people experts suggest voters fail to
notice he was really offering them anything new in first place he claimed to be and their turn a diva to the order way of doing politics but she was born in raised in this system his education his you know forced it jobs to be an investment bank good over him with all his career oprah's fear is that of our elites the only difference between him and he will mark all of the vicious system is his agent and he's mother is in his way of governing arkell politically the same after three months the president has already fallen from grace or as one commentator put it the comments macron or indeed jupiter has come back down into the atmosphere of a partridge party paris. because ratings are also believed to influence by his apparent obsession with public image to he wanted a bigger office photo for instance than any other president and it looks like he tried to copy other leaders are winning photos too just like his predecessors who
seized every photo opportunity. is big football fan like barack obama mccall also seems to be taking some cues from another former french president to check out those pictures french publisher and journalist morville believe image is the only thing that can actually control within his party. he's comparing them to the range of the m.p.'s he has with. his posse has been created out of the blue and because they have eighty percent of the center seats they have hired people like in business firm but without any experience of the political world you have for instance m.p.'s who said that there will be late at the trench assembly because they had their tennis lessons you can find m.p.'s welcome to unable to answer the simple questions to journalists mr macro doesn't have any party that's why he pay so much attention to his image that's the only thing he can control in fact. an
ok next in the looks of the key moments of the german election. angle america is not only one of the world's most powerful leaders she may well be one of the world's most laid back politicians so much so that she decided to take three weeks off and then telling else right before the german voters determine whether or not she can run for a fourth term next month the fact that she chose to wear the very same outfit for the last five trips she took to the same location just goes to show how well she understands her people that they prefer the status quo and change isn't necessarily good don't take my word for it just take a look at the polls support for merkel drop ten points while she's breathing in that italian a mountain air but she's still way ahead of her lean rival as speedy leader in march and schultz who couldn't get any hiking sessions in his schedule because well
he's busy campaigning like any other politician would the former european parliament spokesman even try to provoke a reaction from the chancellor by claiming of germany is not prepared for the future influx of refugees but not only. merkle ignore all of this propagation is just pepper sprayed on a nickname of the chancellor shadowboxer courtesy of the local media is the feeling of solidarity between states has been lost how did it get to this when did it start did it begin with a man whose decision to open borders and you greenman with our partners in a moment when those partners were overloaded. america on the horizon is quite easy to describe it's an s.p.d. led government in september. i came to the streets of berlin to ask german voters if not campaigning is a more subtle and effective form of electioneering when i ask you what you think about the election so far. it's right. there
campaigning. no no. yeah i'm not so into it why should it's interesting and so it's just politics and. actually i can tell you right now because i think like i'm working so moderate now i'm not. i don't know anything about right now i'm not into the election right now so far. actually. in germany it's a good question and it's like it's like they're enjoying the summer and cast the right ball come autumn says this poster by miracle c.d.u. party which aptly symbolizes her laid back campaign style and they sue artie. meanwhile fresh back from holiday and fresh on the election trail and got america's got a pretty frosty reception at one rally. right i think
she was booed and whistled out while speaking about the country's refugee policy supporters of the right leaning alternative for germany party staged a protest against medical policy of open borders for refugees holding banners rating america must go and borders instead of c.d.u. that's a reference to murder of party they also called for the chancellor to resign to political analyst and consultant writer office says the germans generally are not big fans of political experiments well the german is different if you compare him to the american or to french people germans usually are rather conservative they do not like experiments and they do not tend to support political movements that are under heavy criticism so if something like they are turning to for germany or also deutsche and. you will immediately see that the political players with the help of the media will attack those
newsman's and people will just be scared away from supporting such parties and therefore the germans they are specifically conservative they are fearful even also supporting movements that are under criticism and therefore i think you cannot expect from germany leadership in the real big challenges of our times. coming up right after the break google's trying to tackle online extremism but it's accused now of being overzealous in removing other people's. break.
so you chew been its parent company google is being accused of stifling alternative viewpoints they're cracking down on extremist content but have also removed legitimate falls from position groups. internet regulation is becoming ever more automated meaning the machines are now in charge of monitoring what you write and post so when you have your video taken down it's nothing personal it's just the algorithm you tube now has computers largely responsible for blocking the stream of content and the company is head over heels with the cutting edge technology that makes this all possible over seventy five percent of the videos we've removed for violent extremism over the past month were taken down before receiving a single human flag and that all sounds well and good given that in theory machines should be objective but it turns out they're not recently we've seen a number of journalists monitors and syrian opposition groups have their content
blocked despite the fact that very similar videos with untouched on mainstream news channels are two pages those who are targeted say the site is purposely trying to erase certain documentation of the war i think what's so troubling about this if we look at the syrian accounts this is video chronicling a six or seven year war and some of the most important parts of that war from the perspective of syrians you tube though still has faith that its machines know best . well these tools are imperfect and untried for every setting in many cases our systems have proven more accurate than humans and videos that need to be removed and the video sharing website isn't alone in being found at fault google has also come under fire for showing bias that was after a number of left wing and progressive news outlets were removed from search results after new protocols were enacted by google those alternative sides claim they've seen a drastic drop and i to be on their pages sense then yet the search engine giant
says the newly adopted policies were applied simply to help improve the quality of results we updated our research quality reader guidelines to flag upsetting user experiences including pages that present conspiracy theories unless the query clearly indicates the user is seeking an alternative viewpoint and that last little bit is a very important to take note of unless a user specific lea indicates they are interested in a quote alternative viewpoint they will be getting that when you look at the actual application of the artificial intelligence programs what you actually see is the. common and very natural organic stupidity of silicon valley elites who are since sorious in nature and actually seek to scrub the internet of divergent opinions a journalist yasha levine actually tested google's artificial intelligence which rates certain phrases as toxic so yasha levine put in phrases for example like
america is corrupt and that was rate is ninety two percent toxic meanwhile one yasha levine entered the phrase hitler was right in everything he did it was only thirty four percent toxic so censorship continues to rear its ugly head online but where a group of experts could have been made to answer for this before there are now only machines which as we've seen aren't as unbiased as we first thought. r.t. washington d.c. . an elderly couple or a bud to be evicted from the home of east jerusalem was really authorities. well if for fifty three years to this house it was a great injustice israel should give us back our land they take our homes and claim there's the take all of trade in farming areas seventy six her husband's eighty four they moved into that house their house in one thousand sixty four which is three years before israel took over eastern jerusalem of
a say the threat of vixens left them or in despair now. and the police are threatening us we don't know what to do we are sitting here like fools we don't know whether to stay or leave we have nowhere to go to maybe if you were to find at least a room we could leave but even if you were to drag out my husband and kick him he would refuse to go. israeli law stipulates the jewish residents can claim the rights to a property if they have got proof that their families live there prior to the nine hundred forty eight war right leaning settler group called the israel land firm won a court battle to claim the elderly couples house the group's director and says is not about discrimination but right here imo it's back to be alone in the middle of power real in the middle full on don't tell your payment to go out and leave telling you no i don't want to go out and this is what you must get good now after
all they did this they taught that the not they don't want to give to let go out from our apartment so then we told them we took them to quote the decision sparked anger among the arab population of east jerusalem people have been staging a prayer outside their house in a show protest the same fate awaits other arab residents in east jerusalem according to human rights watch between one thousand nine hundred sixty seven and twenty sixteen any fifteen thousand palestinians have been stripped of their residency status. believes the strong presence of the israeli lobby abroad prevents condemnation turning into real action hero. situation now one truly awful idea that these seven people may be evicted from their homes any day now is something that should trouble each and every person in jerusalem and not only end it there are forty four other families who might face eviction if this election takes place and there is the chance for peace for all of the people in
jerusalem and in this region that is in jeopardy every time new hatreds goes into our homes into people's houses throws people out and put settlers instead of them sins are being talked about a lot and the issue of the occupation is being brought up again and again in different places around the world but that actual action is not really been taken i think that israel has a very strong lobby around the world. what's the weather news shaping up maltese choose their morning on carbonneau in the next round up in thirty minutes. only be tasty but also dead to the ship between. it was suggested no proof and a fairly strong one there were two thousand. in the study it's
a very extensive study done by a well respected scientist. do chemicals that down the advertising. really increase the risk of cancer and i chose a means of known to infuse damage in the last test is it a sham skepticism they do not believe that risk is is true by independent scientists so did the industry paid you for this i received some compensation for my time as was the others why is that i me to lobby definitely do like what we've been doing and if you want to learn more you'll get a definite on seeing the outflow you. do not go back to. is it big business against health. as it started. all. in safety. when the old maid just
