something isn't in the. films the horrors of islamic states a legacy of the liberated areas of syria on the program we go inside the terror group's. prison many innocent people lost their. fate remains unsettled with the spanish prime minister setting a monday deadline for the region to decide whether it is adopting a declaration of independence. day worldwide news headlines live from moscow this is international for all of us here a very warm welcome to you. potential collusion between the new york times and you tube has been exposed to project veritas which has gained a name for uncovering a uncomfortable truth behind the media has leaked
a video that seems to show an editor of the newspaper manipulating the video platform very rare cases. trying to make up for something isn't in the trick. and the man caught on hidden camera is believed to be ernest petty according to his linked in profile he has you tube brand and diversity curation lead in the video he admits youtube intervened to change trending videos during their faces. trying to make up for something isn't in the treatment ok it's scary. but in those cases they. use some human intervention make sure that they. encourage the. sickly that he's frightened as claimed by project veritas was also caught on camera making controversial statements.
while. well nicholas dudek is an audience of strategy editor for the new york times he claims he previously worked for the election campaigns of both hillary clinton and barack obama who also calls himself a gatekeeper meaning he decides what gets coverage and what doesn't and. i. think you can see what grows out of that's what they wrote something about race. just. i'd sure want to see. the story we requested a comment on the revelations from you tube so far no comment the new york times though has already reacted in fact in a statement the newspaper admitted do dick apparently violated their own ethics code it also claims he exaggerated the influence he had at the outlet. now the communications director at project veritas so steven gordon believes so called gate
keeping by social media is a big concern. certain political entities certain media entities rise to the top of the pecking order there is collusion between the social media networks and the major media outlets what we did was we caught it we caught them admitting it we caught them being candid on undercover video admitting what most people want most americans and what most people around the world strongly suspect was the case anyway but just couldn't prove we've just proved that. mr dudek kind of the star of these first two videos and was pretty clear about having worked for two presidential campaigns and wanting to continue his mission working for the new york times i mean he was pretty clear about it there's no ambiguity in his words and what's interesting is in the new york times statement they didn't rebut the accuracy of what we said we kind of suspected that if they well here's a low level guy but they did they said he's
a junior player but they didn't rebut the accuracy of what we put out they're just making excuses for. one of the worst the seats the mainstream media does and now major social media does is gate keeping it's their role it's not miss this is stopping most depressing story lines that they don't want to hear don't want you to hear so they can bump up their narrative to the top of the list and most people trust as these major internet companies are growing and maturing and becoming almost monopolistic they've got debility to do a lot more than they used to in the startup days of the internet and so they're clued in they're in bed with the new york in this case you tube and the new york times are in bed and we're in new york and new york times and you tube are in bed the bastard child of that relationship is fake news. as the battle against i sold and dead as oprah fans continues he has been traveling with the syrian army to get first hand experience from the frontline. ice is making it.
he's one of the jihad just briefly showing himself the way to. following the liberation of the syrian army is now advancing on ice so positions to the north west over years of islamic state control have caused massive damage to the how to live village on surrounding areas. as witnessed the horrifying legacy left behind by the terrorists. liberating this village was just part of the job holding it is another. day and night the syrian army and the isis skirmish at its edges in the meantime fresh forces pouring in preparation for the next push against the jihad ists still there's more to it had low was taken less than two days ago after an isis
occupation that lasted years and left its mark everywhere these small village even hosted an isis prison and police department. isis doled out their own brand of justice offenses like owning a sim card being a syrian government worker or an infidel carried the death penalty. many of the human is that these id cards are no longer alive islamic state had almost everything it's own government ministries police courts even had their own currency and stamp these coins quickly going out of circulation and becoming collector's items many people are eager to get their hands on these. currency is
a form of control with it i says restricted trade to within the caliph that taxes had to be paid to and if you couldn't pay in money you paid in goods are. you. sure. there are american. soldiers was still sweeping hatta looking for isis hideaways and bombs most had been cleared when we got there but. not all there weren't that many booby traps and those they left seemed crude made uncharacteristic of isis suggesting that perhaps isis did not expect to loose so quickly. from syria. the spanish prime minister has set
a monday deadline for the capital and leader to decide whether the region is adopting a declaration of independence and also does the current situation an attempt at quote deliberate confusion. meant. to confirm that. the ultimatum from madrid comes after catalonia as leader signed the declaration but postponed its adoption calling for dialogue with madrid if indeed the declaration is adopted the spanish government's government may trigger now the article five five of the constitution that suspends the region's autonomy. and i see no reports. looks like the situation has gone from a chess game to upping the ante to see who blinks first and now really both sides or at least madrid certainly at this hour running out of patience and demanding
clarity madrid still continues to see the results of the observer first referendum as illegal. it's impossible to start a dialogue on something prohibited by the constitution and this is something that those numerous mediators who offered to broker a solution for this crisis most of them with the best intentions should take into account you have to thank them for their involvement and interest mediation is not possible between democratic law and disobedience and the law for less. so now madrid is saying look it's time to make up your mind there was the referendum there was this potential and now it's meant where it wasn't really clear what was announced by putin months and this is certainly something that's left lots of people with their eyebrows raised here on the ground in catalonia especially the ones who have been fighting long and hard for the region this independence with some even going so far as to call the situation
a betrayal from the capital and leadership. but we will not return to any parliamentary activity until steps towards the implementation of the republic. well this was a statement from the c u p which is quite a key party in the capsule and regional parliament which forms along with the which is that together where he has a coalition of parties that when they came to form a slim majority in the parliament here that was seen as the first step towards independence for catalonia so their impatience and their unhappiness with the situation is really seen as understandable here on the ground given that we have a situation now where which tomorrow and who promised to proclaim the region's independence within forty eight hours of the votes of the year for first referendum being announced now trying to basically sit on several chairs at once making madrid unhappy. the making the people who wanted the independence to be proclaimed following the into a referendum on happy and really oh we're just going to have to wait and see what happens next because obviously at least madrid and the people here who voted for
independence are really beginning to run out of patience. professor william believes the situation in the country has now become a game of brinkmanship historically. isn't it is an entity slightly separate as is the basque region and all the reasons of spain. and it's possible that a mistake was made a few years ago when the central government took away some of its autonomy that was a mistake all i think they want is to get back to the autonomy under a little more so what we're seeing i think is a game of poker i think that the leadership and i stress will soon be with the business leadership and not just the people sending a message to madrid to be more flexible. allied to that is the fact that i think the spanish tend to be a pretty proud people if you look at their history so it's
a delicate situation it's to do with the people as a whole and undoubtedly business interests. held a referendum almost two weeks ago with some ninety percent of voters said to have chosen to break away made out of the actions of widespread brutality from national police but it is not the only region with its fate still undecided. catalans are holding their breath after the drama of their referendum will they end up sticking with spain after all really go it alone because. i winning the referendum hasn't always brought about the desired goal let's look at a couple of cases first up the greek bailout referendum in two thousand and fifteen prime minister alexis tsipras promised a no vote would mean an end to e.u. and i.m.f. imposed a stereotypic. a cooling on you to support this negotiation and calling on you to
say no to this recipe of memorandums that's just doing europe. when an overwhelming no to a stereotype was returned caved in to the troika anyway what i'm telling you right here that i take full responsibility for mistakes as well as the signing an agreement that i would do you believe in however i'm a blue ridge to implement it next up because this struggle for independence the self-proclaimed region and move in iraq has been raring to go certainly for years now citing tensions with baghdad we choose to live together with baghdad willingly if they don't want us to be their partners we refused to be their servants and last month emboldened by months of propelling islamic states from iraq the territories the region held an independence referendum almost ninety three percent voted in favor of going. now this is a new era for the kurdish people it is
a turning point and we have to use it and this is a big victory for the kurdish people that was almost two weeks ago and since then silence within the same silence to call and cancel lumia awaits to be see. right out on a quarter past the hour here in the russian capital british m.p.'s what a life so facebook and google to be classified as a media outlets meaning that be subjected to greater regulation story. they put themselves on the line to get accepted or rejected. so when you want to be president and. want to. be this is what. you get. interested always in the water.
the ground and news thing it gives the exact number of their appearances on the fees reportedly paid to them the times claims it's all part of the kremlin's attempt to extend its reach within british politics. has been taking a much closer look. this is one of britain's most read newspapers and one of the leading editorials in the london times today happens to be all about this place r t it's called helping parents in and it names and shames all the politicians that appear on the channel it's not although there's another article that elaborates on concerns about the extent of kremlin influence here in westminster and whereas talking to the media is normally considered an expression of freedom of speech here in the u.k. these articles appear to suggest that the politicians talking to r.t.
are greedy and even treacherous well to talk about this more i'm going to gate crash the studio going underground host afshin rattansi hey ashton you talked to quite a few of the politicians list in this article do you think that it's a fair assessment so and why do they come on your show really short in journalism isn't it the murdoch times i mean to my knowledge they haven't gone to r.t. for going with that alone going underground which is named jake in this story m.p.'s politicians from all around the world from all parties in britain come on going underground because they can they know they will look at issues in depth and allow them to actually speak in action one of the articles here lists a lot of the labor m.p.'s that came on the show and on the news channel and a select few of the conservative ones can you explain that to an international
audience well i think obviously labor politicians have been on this show but the conservative ones from other smaller parties i think this obviously indicates the mood org line here they're trying to somehow attack media that is. funded by the russian government by saying it is allied to jeremy corbin the channel has been attacked in the past but does this feel like a whole new level this naming and shaming of politicians do you think it can be hard if you get guests on the show as a result i think strangely it's been an uphill battle right at the beginning it was tough but actually i think more and more politicians are becoming used to the idea that the u.k. is here to stay and it's going to allow petitions to speak about real issues not about the sound bite culture of celebrity and all the rest of it the british view is used to in this country the russian embassy in london responded on twitter by
questioning the logic behind the article it pondered if russian politicians are appearing on the b.b.c. therefore help the british prime minister. social media giants feeling the heat again this time in the u.k. british m.p.'s want the likes of facebook and google to be classified as media outlets meaning they would be subjected to greater regulation about's raise concerns or freedom of speech by steven green from the christian voice advocacy group and media commentator neil wallis share their views. the whole idea reese completely ludicrous it's even like football it is of course a gross intrusion to freedom of speech but more significantly frankly it's completely unworkable it could be an infringement on freedom of speech but the problem moment is the nobody is accountable to the social media platforms to countable and there is no way of holding those who post to account. kalil in
bridgeville you know who are you what you know where are you i think there's been an incredible excesses and facebook and google have an awful lot to answer for but that's not all they all are i have a twitter account i reach week articles as things i've read of interest and significant ten twenty times a day sometimes every single one of those is a publication under what this person is saying he's simply impractical they could do it who on earth is going to monitor it how it's going to be done it won't work can't work and it shouldn't work when you're writing stuff you can do it you can sometimes get a little bit carried away and you could be a lot more harsh than you would be face to face and this excited what the government is saying that you shouldn't be putting stuff all social media which you couldn't say face to face to somebody and that's sort of pretty fundamental principle a thing to be problems for governments talking about a code of conduct and it's singled out of religious aspects of the bt community and
you know my antenna rise a little bit because if you're not going to be able to day code to say anything negative about homosexuality will anything negative about islam then that is an infringement on freedom of speech but just slightly people off all posting fake news. must must be must be accountable i quite accept and quite agree that facebook and google should be doing far more to clean up up their. but there are those freedom of speech issues what is your definition of what is terrorist material versus controversial political opinion. a libyan a humanitarian peace activist who will take his case to the european court of appeal on thursday. he is seeking justice after an entire family was killed in a nato airstrike injuring twenty seven rocket family in the small town of
tripoli among the thirteen people killed in what nato called precision bombing where his wife two children niece and aren't the alliance claims the strike was conducted on a regime command center well its case against nato had previously been dismissed by the court of first instance referring to the organization's immunity but his lawyer claims there are blatant contradictions and nato's explanation of this precision strike. if you look at the position of nato at the very start of this whole situation actually the day after the bombing the nato spokesman made a long statement in the early hours of monday morning nato carried out a persistent strike using precision guided weapons on a highly significant command to control node we have served the site over a prolonged period of time before conducting the precision strike which minimized
any potential risk of causing unnecessary casualties very quickly it became clear that there was absolutely nothing like this in the compound that was bombed that specially not in the building where mr i made it would his family was living we remain confident of our information that this was a military site that there was no evidence of a civilian presence nato did not have access to contemporaneous ground observation from reliable neutral observers. incoherent incompatible statements made by two nato responsible tonight a spokesman. shows as far as i'm concerned that something is wrong they didn't say it's a mistake either they didn't so sorry we were aiming at some some other building or we had wrong information so the only thing i can think of at this stage is that the aim was really to hit this family house. which of course would be a war crime maybe just to terrorize all those who would be suspected of being too close to the former regime terrorizing into them into capitalization something like
that. is a humanitarian activist and the founder of an international organization for peace care and relief in libya although it's claimed he also had links to the deposed regime. i think it's important that somebody takes the initiative because probably because of his higher profile than mr ed how many had the opportunity. to bring such a case in brussels which is of course much more difficult for people living in a rule or a rural areas poor people though undoubtedly suffered a lot from nato intervention the case here is also that mr mitty of course complains about his own family and his own suffering and the harm that was done the injustice that was done to him but at the same time he also feels to be a spokesperson for all those who suffered from similar. acts committed
by nato during the libya campaign this is also international live from moscow just about a nearly half past ten on thursday morning your well news continues about how to. apply for many clubs over the years so i know the game and so i got. the ball isn't only about what happens on the beach or the funnel school it's about the passion from the fans it's the age of the super money just to spend spend be true to the twenty million and one player. it's an experience like nothing else not to because i want to share what i think what i know about the beautiful game great so one more chance with. the base it's going to.
