is it big business against tells. protest accuse the president of supporting far right extremism after his delayed condemnation of hate groups two days after the deadly violence and charlottesville . google's accused of censorship after its automated tracking system skews searches and deletes videos from journalists and groups on you tube. and these low key campaigners election fever fails to ignite parties and voters in the news most powerful country.
good morning this is r.t. on tuesday the fifteenth of august here in moscow kevin away and first in this thirty minute news update two days after 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.
the nazi's white supremacists and other hate groups that are repugnant to everything we hold dear as americans despite saying that then though none the less much the media still criticize the president for his delayed response leading him to tweet that the fake news media will never be satisfied he then headed to new york where he was met by crowds of protesters outside trump tower accusing him of racism next kalam open looks at how america's political debate is now or maybe. 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. that. 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 and he wasn't a law he should look in the mirror and he made a choice in his presidential campaign the folks around with him to you know 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 bannon 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 bill as the white supremacists and always 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 allowing republican leaders you had an increasing intensity of hostility on the left sleepless
intensity has been building. since election night the hype of both 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 well 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 that is. right 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 parties 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 so no matter what your political outlook is the best strategy seems to be the same generalizing demonize it will happen are you see your. right wing protest in charlottesville centered around the removal of a civil war monument which should latterly be regarded as symbolizing racism similar confederate statues elsewhere have been targeted by campaigners in recent months in fact just yesterday monday protest is destroyed one in north carolina.
demonstrators gathered outside the county courthouse to topple that statue some peace and climbing on it. was full on a rope to bring it to the ground the crowd also chanted slogans such as we are the revolution and no k.k.k. no fascist usa. spits by you united we stand divided we fall what about you got to. do i was with you guys with. the democrats. one of the reasons i won the election is very very divided nation.
reporting next this morning you tube and its parent company google being accused of stifling alternative viewpoints cracking down on extremist content but have also removed legitimate files from journalists and opposition groups apparently jacqueline bukas goal. 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 went untouched on mainstream news channels you 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 sites claim they've seen a drastic drop and i to video on their pages sense then yet the search engine giant
says the newly adopted policies or 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 the journalist yasha levine actually tested google's artificial intelligence which rate 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 and heard 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. . elections alou for europe germany despite the potential far reaching consequences of the vote things seem to be a bit less do so for it's in contrast of course to how the french company was running at this stage. some of them are thankful that you are. making sure you could have been a good little boy because you like.
checks out where the german election race is heading so far. 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 main rival as speedy leader march and schultz who couldn't get any hiking sessions in his schedule because 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 germany is not prepared for the future influx of refugees but not only that merkel ignore all of his propagations just pepper sprayed him a nickname of the chancellor shadowboxer courtesy of the local media the feeling of solidarity between states has been the most how do they get to this when did it start did it begin with a man whose decision to open borders and you agree with our partners in
a moment when those partners were overloaded just. on the horizon is quite easy to describe it's an s.p. the led government in september. i came to the streets of berlin to ask german voters not campaigning is a more subtle and effective form of electioneering when i ask you what you think about the election campaign so far it's expected right. there campaigning. yeah i'm not so into. his 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 but the election. in germany will be questioned and it's like
it's not there enjoy the summer and cast the right vote come autumn says this poster by miracle c.d.u. party which aptly symbolizes her laid back campaign style and they stoop r.t. . so them back from holiday and fresh on the election trail got a frosty reception at one rally. right right. michel that was speaking about the country's refugee policy supporters of the right leaning alternative for germany party staged a protest there against an i.p.s. policy of open borders for refugees they were holding banners reading merkel must go and borders instead of see the you referenced america's policy they also call for the chancellor to resign to political analyst and consultant rainer office says germans generally don't take political risks. well the german is different and if you compare him to the american or to french people germans usually rather
conservatives they do not like experiments and they do not tend to support political movements that are under heavy criticism so if something like that turn into for germany or also deutsche and. you will immediately see that the political players with the help of the media will attack those movements and people will just be scared away from supporting such parties and therefore the germans they are specifically conservative they are fiercely 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 meantime cross the border over in france it seems the honeymoon is already
over for the french president micron the public's falling out of love with her later after just one hundred days in the job tell me more about that than ninety seconds or less. what politicians do will show. they put themselves on the line to get accepted or rejected. so when you want to be president and should. somehow want to. have to go right to be close that's what before three in the morning can people get . interested always in the waters of mexico. city. in case you're new to the game this is how. the economy is built around corporate corporations from washington washington media the media folks
voters elected a businessman to run this country business if. you must it's not business as usual it's business like it's never been done before. an elderly palestinian couple who've lived in the same house in east jerusalem for more than fifty years unless about to be evicted by israeli authorities. we lived for fifty three years in this house it is a great injustice israel should give us back our land our homes and theirs they take all of trailers in for me is seventy six her husband's eighty four they moved
into that house back in one nine hundred sixty four which is three years before israel took over eastern jerusalem she says the threat now there were victualled as left them in despair. last lesson 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 we 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. into israeli law stipulates the jewish residents can claim the rights to a property if they have proof that their families lived there prior to the nine hundred forty eight war a right leaning settle a group called the israel land for no in this case has won a court battle to claim the couple's house the group's director insists it's not about discrimination but right see says i know you expect to be alone in the middle of. the offer on don't you tell your payment to go out and we've done it you know i
don't want to go out and this is what you left did. after all they did this they taught that the not they don't want to give to let to go out from our apartment so then we told them we took them to court the decision sparked anger among east jerusalem as our population there were people of help couples the same fate awaits other residents of east jerusalem to vote according to human rights watch fifteen thousand palestinians have been stripped of their residency status over the last fifty years. believes the strong presence of the israeli lobby abroad to prevent any condemnation turning into real action. situation now. 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 of action if this
action 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. those 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. after just one hundred days as the president of france seems the show has gone so more money will mccrum once heralded as the champion of democratic values he's now is more popular than his predecessor. was behind this fall from grace the. on may the seventh emanuel mike ross went to paris president of france. his share of the
vote was sixty six percent he is thirty nine years promised a fresh new era these i am totally for the construction of a new model of governance people do saying 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 mccoys 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 my current 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 macro knows better because he is in charge as you would wish if you near city didn't place you in
a new government there. 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 bridgette 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 the first place he claimed to be and their turn a diva to the way of doing politics but he was born and raised in this system his education his you know forested jobs to be an investment bank good over him with all his career and oprah's fear is of of our elites the only difference between him
or anyone mark or one of the vicious or system is his age or in his mother is in his way of governing arkell pretty can seem after three months the president has already fallen from grace or is one commentator put it the comments macron or indeed jupiter has come back down using the atmosphere of a partridge party harris across ratings are also believed to be influenced by as a part of session with his public image too he wanted for instance a bigger office photo than any other president and it looks like he tried to copy other leaders are winning photos as well. just like his predecessors who seizing every photo opportunity can of course is a big football fan like barack obama also seems to be taking some cues from another former french president charles de gaulle to publisher in journalism rick morville believes image is the only thing that mccrone can actually control within his body . he's compelled to enter the fray because the m.p.'s he has been with. this
policy has been created it out of the blue and because they have the percent of the center seats they haven't hired people like in a business firm but without any experience of the political world you have for instance the m.p.'s who say that they will be late at the trench assembly because they have that tennis lessons you can find m.p.'s welcome to unable to answer two simple questions to journalists mr macro doesn't have any policy that's why he pay so much attention to his image that's the only thing he can control and in fact. check out these facebook page followers on twitter to share the minute i'm kevin i would face watching this news update on programs continue right after right.
we all willingly accepted the risk of being shot wounded taken prisoner but not signed up to be poisoned by our own people that was nuclear biological and chemical products said do not truck tires all types of styrofoam polystyrene batteries trucks there was a complete denial i think at all levels of government that there was any connection between berm pits and what these brave soldiers were suffering from to compensate every soldier marine airman and sailor that was on the ground that are complaining about illnesses from. from the firm pitts woodbridge literally sound of be a pro and they don't want to pay it so the way to the decades
