i had line stories this hour u.s. authorities are putting unprecedented pressure on according to the network's chief over claims are channel influence in the presidential election that's despite senate leaders ruling out any impact on the. division in spain intensifies as pro unity and pro independence demonstrators rally in council plus madrid boosting support for the national police in the breakaway region we'll have the details. from looks set to approve a new anti terror which critics say essentially puts the country permanent state of
emergency. in my life worldwide this is the news from r.t. international recall in great friday midday in moscow first for you this r.t. is facing unprecedented pressure in the united states that's according to the channel's editor in chief she believes draconian measures a big use to target not just the network's employees but also those linked to us the campaign against has been based on claims that our channel influenced the twenty sixteen presidential election no concrete evidence has ever been given high ranking officials in washington continue to make allegations. the r.t.s. on twitter were almost uniformly anti clinton and those i think you look at them and you have to conclude no there was a clear design in these ads so that's one congressman's opinion yet on the same day
the senate intelligence committee probing alleged russian meddling so the complete opposite there is no way that you can look at that and say that that was to help the right side of the ideological charge and and. not the left or vice versa they were indiscriminate it seems that the overall theme of the russian . involvement in the us elections was create chaos at every level all of this is just the latest segment of the russians did it saga we're now all attention seems to have shifted to our channel and it's social media ads well it's no secret that r.t. does advertise on twitter and other platforms just like most other media outlets the little blue bird sang a song of russian meddling last week and report the disclose how much we spend on ads the sum was two hundred seventy five thousand dollars and it's funny to consider is that being able to make a sufficient influence on the election when all the candidates spent about one billion dollars to make it look as if.
it's adverts to that is how much you eat greet recently became the latest internet giant to jump on the bandwagon when it yanked us from its premium ad service in the us without any warning whatsoever now that move is unlikely to have an adverse effect on our channels reach as we are already the most viewed news network on you tube and fact last month we hit the milestone of over five billion views nevertheless this ban only adds to the mounting pressure on the channel until recently no active measures except to skirting our reputation have been taken against aspecific room number and so have we average experience a kind of high shirtless experience. to point. out to contrary washington is absolutely insane with the idea that our two years out there they
want to condemn it as somehow russian propaganda but the fact of the matter is whether you love your tea or hate the idea that the u.s. government can tell you what you can watch and can't watch the idea that there's a government censor or something like google in bed with the government telling you what you and can't watch this is like something out in one thousand nine hundred four what it comes down to is of all of these attacks against the russian media continue moscow has announced that equivalent measures may be taken against american media in russia meet that i see the russian foreign ministry can take countermeasures against journalists representing media outlets of countries that have restrictions on russian journalists meanwhile president trump who sees the russian witch hunt as a hoax has suggested that his government take a look a little closer to home saying that american media is full of the ever present fake news. donald trump is of course all too familiar with the battle against fake news
both the president and his administration say they've been long term targets of false reporting of the latest victim seems to be the secretary of state. tennison tried to quit but was talked out of it by allies and even vice president mike pence who had to give to us in what's described as a pep talk the vice president has never had to persuade me to remain the secretary of state because i have never considered leaving this post secretary called on the president a moron and it was wrong of all those for he said it loudly enough for you. over the. very. worst i'm just i'm not going to deal with petty stuff like that i mean this is this is what i don't understand about washington again i'm not from this place but the places i come from we don't deal with that kind of petty nonsense and it is intended didn't know nothing but divide before following to listens rebuttal of the story president trump accused n.b.c. of low standards in its reporting adding that it should make a public apology c.n.n.
has also been in the firing line over some of its reporting earlier this year it had to retract a story claiming congress was investigating ties between a trump aide and a russian investment fund when that aide threatened the network with a one hundred million dollars lawsuit an apology was issued and three journalists resigned some c.n.n. employees were also caught on camera this was back in june claiming that the channel runs alleged russian meddling stories only to boost its ratings but what do you think's going to happen this week to tell russia. that things that i think that the really. the point c.n.n. constantly. russia the thrust of. this is ratings the president is probably right he said. look. you know you prove. we talk to the director of grassroots political consulting daniel for archery he says he shares president trump's concern over the state of
america's media. we have about five corporations that control or entire media apparatus people are profiting off of them and it's completely controlled and at the same time you have congress investigating and seeking regulation on free media any alternative news media coming from international sources like this channel to bloggers social media now facebook having to go troll through with physical people so many different news stories that their focus is on shouting voices of anything that's not mean stream media and it was an interesting tweet from president trump. division in spain continues to intensify as pro unity and pro independence rallies have been held across the country the opposing protests followed catalonia announcement that it will declare its independence next week meanwhile spain's defense ministry is giving additional aid to the police in the civil guard being deployed to the region hundreds of the latest move to ramp up its forces has been
getting plenty of attention as well approximately twenty trucks with beds kitchens and showers are being sent out to the riot police and cast alone in some media speculating that spain is effectively sending its army in to get a handle on the situation spanish authorities of course are already feeling the heat following the violent crackdown on the day of the count of the referendum which left more than eight hundred injured last sunday madrid's extra support for its forces in catalonia comes after five hundred officers across the region were evicted from premises that i was to situation has been following developments in the council on capital. we are indeed in the small town of sun boys lover god which is about a half hour away from barcelona where locals have come out onto the streets and through opposing protests this particular group here was a peaceful march walking through the streets hundreds of people who have come out to speak against the police brutality that has been at the forefront surrounding the events of the of tobar first referendum on catalan independence as you can see
the atmosphere is quite tense as the protesters here the ones who are against the police brutality and for the independence are being confronted by another group of protesters were there if you can see them there are police between these two groups to avoid any kind of trouble and these two groups have come out onto the streets to really as yet another example of how high the division has been here during these last several days surrounding the referendum. thank. the violent police crackdown on catalans on the day of the referendum is often at the forefront in some boy deliberate got near barcelona equipment and supplies sent by madrid to a military base have been met with resistance the move is seen as preparation for more trouble to come just as a lot of us already are after what happened on the first of october last patients
we can bear to be beaten to a elderly people and our children to be treated badly lost almost a political we don't want security forces here they're preparing everything to bring repressive forces we saw how they behaved on the first of october we don't want either the civil guard or the national police i. was. the spanish national guard has been vilified since over eight hundred people were injured on polar. i i towns around catalonia locals have demonstrated against the police being there but pro unity supporters were against independence and the police about it within the law. or you got the police violence they did what they had to do to restore law and order reporting from catalonia understand here churkin are for r.t.
. floyd so more about this now we can talk to ramon from osa he's a member of the european parliament for the catalan european democratic party welcome to the program mr promoters how tense is the division in spain right now or is this localized in catalonia presumably a lot of spaniards don't want catalonia to leave. well i have to say that the brutal military repression that we all the world have seen sunday he has unified catherine zeta in that before the referendum all the poor people showed that eighty two percent of companies won that of a friend and now i can say that we have much more than i did on the controversy. over the men of my last two weeks ago a vote invest vanish happy and bondo of oppression in qatar show who is the guy that more and more is the spanish i think not but i think. with that
in mind given the madrid deployed national and civil police forces across catalonia it's boosting supplies to those forces that if they have to stay for any length of time what effect is that going to have on the public's level of tension in catalonia. well i cannot talk name of this bunny's government. our government said that the so referendum. was binding. not as the one we needed to have him for him which was a non-binding country nation we said that these referendum where but was binding and now we have one apply the results so i think that in the next coming days parliament will proceed to show that it cannot cannot answer you which will be the reaction of the spanish estate and the spanish media that is that article. but in theory we are come to be of the european union and the treaties that explicitly say and clearly say that their military power cannot use against the young
population so maybe this money just paid is saying to us that we are not a spanish population as we have to beat that in the streets like animals so. let's see what's going on next days i want to get your thoughts on something said by the european commission vice president france tenements he backed the actions of the police on referendum day even though we all saw those videos of blood stained citizens injured police but he called it a proportional use of force just take a quick listen to what he said it is of course juicy for any government to uphold the rule of law and this sometimes does require. caution that use of force i did emphasize the word proportionate there but do you think some of the protesters and voters should take some of the blame for inciting some violence on a. referendum that was deemed illegal by the country. well.
it is not true that there are no more they may go the spanish constitutional court has not. suspended need not be credited as a legal. question and then i think that. it has been a big mistake from the commission to repeat exactly the same words and the spanish government says these two poles at the european commission has all turned on me in front of member states and it is a very bad signal to european cities and that our oppression boot of repression that by showing with my eyes in the streets of barcelona is called proportional proportion a pressure in the mouth of the. president and the minimum shall we i think that it does not help. you need to do these speeches like that. now nearly a week on from the referendum and those scenes that we saw or is it still the case
will catalonia keep its word and declare independence next monday if so are you prepared for further unrest. well we don't know we very action of the spanish government they threat our president i know what ministers and i want a party of months parliamentarians with j u. so maybe they will go to jail and government president with their money saying in the last months i don't want to go to jail but i'm ready to go to jail eve because i will have to be loyal to the democratic mandate that their population of catalunya is giving in the last elections last referendum this growing demand for independence so we have got a. shock between the democratic legitimacy in the last six years in all the elections are independent these past out of these. out of his arse have won these elections clear with massive storms around celebrities and measured unison on the
other side that is the spanish escape was shall we in the constitution as we force the old testament. text negotiate at the one thousand nine hundred seventy seven under military pressure and it cannot be used as a jail for the will of freedom of that article or so years of hard running feelings still running very high of course i really appreciate your time ramon for most pay for the cattle on european democratic party thanks for your time. your with you francis continuing to step up anti terror measures a six suspects linked to a failed attack in paris is arrested the details of that coming right up after the break.

communications it will also allow the closure of places of worship suspected of inciting terrorism and placing alleged jihadi sympathizers come to house rats now the recent poll in france suggested that fifty seven percent of people in favor of the war even if sixty two percent think it will be to use better freedoms . i think this will become dangerous in the long run and won't be beneficial today they say it's against terrorists tomorrow against ecological protestors and antique label it's the day after tomorrow it will be against journalists they say prison doors books. i think this limits freedom of the i believe the whole program is useless human rights activists say it's so gross violation of privacy even emanuel mock or him so you've admitted that these measures do not to
war against terrorism so why are they passing them maybe the regime is getting weak maybe they are anticipating social unrest maybe they just want to chase around public opinion and tell them we are doing something but what we need is for the french government to do the work thing and their work thing would be to force us to question why do these terrorist attacks happen and second world with their keep happening in montreal my call pledged to end the state of emergency by november and peace is key to him keeping about. comics and while there is no doubt that these two will be the powers of the police it's unclear if it will the people. any more safety despite the sacrifice of liberty somebody's been skiing. or it's meanwhile a new anti terror measures getting underway at one of the world's most visited tourist attractions the eiffel tower in paris will be secure the ground level by
