postponing its independence declaration protesters gathering across the region of the country it's. this day's worldwide headlines live from moscow thanks for joining us here when r.t. international is just now turning a may day here in the russian capital. while a potential collusion between the new york times and you tube has been exposed project veritas which is going to name for uncovering uncomfortable truths behind the media has leaked a video that seems to show an editor of the newspaper manipulating the video platform. trying to make up for the fact that something isn't in the truck and the man caught on hidden camera is believed to be honest petty
according to his linked in profile he is you troops brandon diversity curation lead in the video he admits youtube intervenes to change trending videos. very rare cases. try to make up for the fact that something isn't in the treatment and it's scary. but in those cases they. use some human intervention make sure that they. do. encourage the thing to be sickly but he's friend as he's described in another part of the clip by project very tossed was also caught on camera saying he benefits from the relationship people just dislike to something that's on the page like your treasures out about it we don't know it's just close friends security right. nicholas through to choose an audience strategy editor for the new york times he claims he's previously worked for the election campaigns of both hillary clinton and barack obama he calls himself
a gate keeper for the top u.s. newspaper deciding what gets coverage and what does not. as an editor i mean so i can see what goes out and doesn't go that's a great something that i base i beg to leave you actually just you know i. think it's i was just your request or comment on the revelations from you tube but so far no comment that the new york times has already reacted in a statement to the newspaper admitted dudek apparently violated the outlets own ethics code it also claims he exaggerated the influence he had at the outlet their communications director project veritas steven gordon believes so called a gate keeping by social media so huge 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 an album 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 or 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 to billeted 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 it's fake news. the battle against i still in bed as old prophets continues he has been traveling with the syrian army to get first hand experience right from the frontline isis is making it. he's one of the jihad ists briefly showing himself while spraying the way on full otoh. following the liberation of the syrian army is now
advancing on ice oppositions to the north west however years of islamic state control have caused massive damage to the village and surrounding area. but i guess d.s. has witnessed the horrifying legacy left 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 poori in in preparation for the next push against the jihad ists still there's more to it had taken less than two days ago after an isis occupation that lasted years and left its mark everywhere these small village even hosted 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 we get to get their hands on these. currency is a form of control with it i says restricted trade to within that cal. taxes had to be paid to and if you couldn't pay in money you paid in goods for.
your. soldiers was still sweeping had looking for isis hideaways and bombs had been cleared when we got there but not all there weren't that many booby traps and those they left seemed crude. uncharacteristic of isis suggesting that perhaps isis the north expect to lose had . to come. from there is on syria. the spanish prime minister has set a monday deadline for the catalan president to decide whether the region has adopted a declaration of independence or not you know protesters are gathering across the region as the country marks its national day today that's across five to barcelona
. joining us live here on the program good to see you today the atmosphere where you are it could be expectations for a tense time today. but i love worry we are in the midst of a protest where hundreds of people are gathering for a big march towards central classic had to loot yes indeed it is a national day here and yet another group of people now coming onto the streets to address the situation that's been unraveling involving the catalan crisis as you can see behind me it's quite a few people that have spread themselves around here that are getting ready to march lots of them carrying the spanish blood this is a pro unity march and if you can see in this direction also lots of people that are going to be headed towards what's a good salute here which of course quite iconic with lots of protesters having been gathering there throughout this time now all of this of course comes as the spanish government is demanding. answers from the council on leadership we have heard from the spanish prime minister mariano rajoy saying it's time to clarify whether catalonia is in or out and according to what is was going to be said certain
measures are going to be taken the spanish prime minister said he's giving the capital our leader carlos puts them on top until monday to clarify the position of the council on region let's take a listen at a good deal for a moment i was going to require the governments to confirm. from the early bird confusing marine is regarding. well one saying the spanish government has not yet ruled out is the application of article one hundred fifty five of the spanish constitution using which would be quite unprecedented it would mean a freezing of the autonomy of the region and this would be something that would be obviously seen as a very confrontational step for madrid to take and all of this tension of course comes following the october first referendum where the castle on leadership. ninety percent of the people who came out to vote for it in favor of leaving spain however
according to lots of expectations and anticipation we did expect the crowd slam leader to announce the cattle on independence earlier this week however that did not happen he talks about independence he said it would be suspended for several weeks to allow dialogue with madrid to take place but it sounds like at this point things are quite unclear the situation is very complicated who is going to be blinking first madrid or barcelona remains to be seen but it is quite clear that spain want specifics from this region now in terms of what exactly it's doing as well as these people here today calling for unity and for catalonia to stay within the country. and i think. we did speak with the former british diplomat william he believes the situation in the country has now become a game of brinkmanship. historically catalunya is a is isn't it is an entity likely 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 of my belief took away some of its autonomy that was a mistake because all i think they want is to get back that autonomy and a little more so what we're seeing i think is a game of poker i think that the leadership and i stress or so maybe the business leadership and not just the people are 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 the history so it's a delicate situation it's to do with the people as a whole and undoubtedly business interests catalonia of course held the referendum almost two weeks ago with some one thousand percent of voters said to have chosen to break away its all amid allegations of widespread per talent for national police but it's 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 and. winning a 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 alex is separate promised a no vote would mean an end to e.u. and time f. imposed a stereotypic. a cooling on you to support this negotiation i'm calling on you to say no to this recipe of memorandums that's destroying europe. when an overwhelming no to a stereotype was returned tsipras caved in to the troika anyway it went. i'm telling you right here that i take full responsibility for mistakes as well as for signing an agreement that i do not believe in however i'm obliged to implement it
next up because the 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 refuse to be their servants and last month emboldened by months of propelling islamic state from iraqi 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 will fall and cancel earlier awakes to be see. your world news continues and just. that's.
the headlines here and i'll tell you thanks for joining us the times newspaper claims that british politicians are doing the kremlin's bidding by participating in a tease programs it names prominent lawmakers who have appeared on such programs i was going on the ground and news thing it gives the exact number of their appearances on the fees reportedly paid to them the times claims as old part of the kremlin's attempt to extend its reach within british politics. boyko has been taking a closer look. this is one of britain's most read newspapers and one of the leading edge a tauriel 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 can sons 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 talk to quite a few of the politician friends list in this article do you think that it's a fair assessment and why do they come on your show really short of journalism isn't it the murdoch times i mean to my knowledge they haven't gone to r.t. for gone with that alone going underground which is a name checked in this story m.p.'s politicians from all around the world from all
policies in britain come on going underground because they can they know that we'll 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 so conservative ones from other smaller parties i think this obviously indicates the murdoch 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 to 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 that british view is used here in this country the russian embassy in london responded on twitter by questioning the logic behind the article it pointed if russian politicians are appearing on the b.b.c. therefore help the british prime minister. well our social media johnson feeling the heat yet again this time in the u.k. a british m.p.'s want the likes of facebook and google to be classified as media outlets meaning they're to be subjected to greater regulation that's raised concerns about freedom of speech and we discussed a few points on the issue with two guests the whole idea reese completely ludicrous it's even laughable 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 aren't accountable and there's no way of holding those who post to account could be. kalil in bridgeville you know who are you you know where are you i think there's been an incredible excesses and i'm 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 it is simply impractical a could do it who on earth is going to monitor it how it's going to be done it won't work called work and it shouldn't work when you're writing stuff you can do you know you
can sometimes get a little bit carried away and you can 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 or governments talking about a code of conduct and it's singled out of religious aspects and the bt community and you know my antenna rise a little bit because if you're not going to be able to update code to say anything negative about homosexuality will and the thing. that is an infringement on freedom of speech which just slike you people off or posting fake news you must must be must be accountable i quite accept and quite agree that facebook and google should be doing fall more to clean up but all those freedom of speech issues what is your definition of what is terrorist material versus
people. 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 early hours of monday morning nato carried out a persistent strike using precision guided weapons on a highly significant command 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 and specially not in the building where mr ahmed 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 contemporary meus ground observation from reliable neutral observers these incoherent incompatible statements made by two nato responsible tonight a spokesman shows as far as i'm concerned that something is wrong that they didn't say it's a mistake either they didn't say oh 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. he is a human 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 mr and how many had the opportunity. to bring such a case in brussels which is of course much more difficult for. pulling weaving in ruler 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
