with the country as a crossroads of the island is on the rise. a new york times editor and his friend who allegedly. feeling the way mainstream social media manipulate the news. very rare cases. try to make up for the fact that something isn't in the tree but. something that intervention to make sure that they. encourage the thing to be basically the films the horrors of islamic states legacy and liberated areas of syria in the program here we go inside the terror groups form a police station and prison where many innocent people lost their lives. thousands
of people across spain is national holiday the region's future in the air after its independence declaration. news headlines live from moscow from everybody here at international a very warm welcome to you. potential collusion between the new york times on you tube has been exposed a project of switchers gained a name for uncovering uncomfortable truths behind the media has leaked a video that seems to show an editor of the newspaper manipulating the video. trying to make up for the fact that something isn't in the trial. court on. hidden
camera is believed to be his party according to his linked in profile he is you tube's brand and diversity curation lead in the video he admits you tube intervenes to change trending videos during their faces. trying to make up for that something isn't in the treatment and scary. but in this case is. just some human intervention make sure that they. encourage the sickly parties friend as he's described in another part of the clip by project veritas was also caught on camera saying he benefits from their relationship keep it all shops it's like something that's on the page like your treasures out about it we don't know it's just because my friend security. or nicholas due to his and audience strategy editor for the new york times he claims he's previously worked for the election campaigns of both 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 editor i mean so i can see what those are that's that's a great something based i actually just to you i. think it's. the story we requested a comment on the revelations from you true but so far no comment though the new york times has already reacted in a statement for example the newspaper admitted that mr dudek apparently violated the outlets own ethics code it also claims he exaggerated the influence he had at the outlet a communications director at project veritas steven gordon believes a so-called gate keeping by social media is a 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 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 the ability 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 or in bed the bastard child of that relationship it's fake news. the battle against i still in debt as old coffins continues he has been traveling with a syrian army to get first hand experience from the frontline isis is making it. he's. one of the jihad just briefly showing himself while spraying the way on full otoh. following the liberation of the syrian army is now
advancing on i still positions to the northwest however years of islamic state controlled of course of massive damage to the village on surrounding area. as 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 poor 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 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 we get to get their hands on these. currency is a form of control with it i says restricted trade to within the caliphate. taxes had to be paid too and if you couldn't pay the money you paid in goods for.
sure. there are. soldiers was still sweeping looking for ice this hideaways and bombs had been cleared when we got there but not all that many booby traps and those they left seemed crude made uncharacteristic of isis suggesting that perhaps isis did not expect to lose had. more of guys deal. from there is on syria. so a lot of pictures for you right now as thousands of people are protesting across catalonia on spain's national day as the impossible for the area its future continues the spanish prime minister monday deadline for the catalan president to decide whether or not the region has adopted a declaration of independence well let's cross live to bosler the. now joining us
here on the program lots of people around you even more expected on the streets today this the support for independence show any signs of actually dying down. well let's worry where the iconic french show must clam barcelona plus a counselor we are right now and it's a loud feeling this way and joining streets that are around here thousands of you can. see from the rocks and the ones where they're still being seen you and sometimes carrying. off live i'm not gathered this is not. the problems that all of these people are coming out to speak in support of keeping cats alone with them. named as the major crisis continues to grip the country and the region this is what people here have been telling us. be a little pissed off at all this point i think we should have talked it over i don't
know whether they were permitted to do so but maybe it would have been best to bring in new people and let the old ones go. and if we want spain in catalonia together we've lived here for fifteen years got married had children have grandchildren we want spanish catalonia together that's all we want you to know that we have to fly. for me to get out and vote on their space because it's the better for all these are the forty year representative for spain's the vote for exhibit a for the one you know the know you should stay with spain for sure but i think that the government should take these then for the people to get to know what what we actually wonder what the i don't have people one but i don't want to be up are they going to stay don't want their president. to be house by only to the law and you should assume the consequences. well it's a national day of spain here so the moods are quite celebratory however for the
people here question since it should let people accept what is going to be happening to their region because this is such an uncertain time this up crisis is limited because this region has been demanding and minus such a long time and the people first became this sort of final highly anticipated result of that is ninety percent of the people who came out to vote did in fact support leaving however think about that on level dr make it not clear whether or not the spanish people are going to be eventually bites cuts alone or not sound. right. until monday to either that's a loaded. i have actually in fact declared and nicely. done come out on tuesday and make a statement that the lot of people. i have to practice fields i
know says that for several days. they need to see this nasty town with the dread and this. apologies there we just lost our correspondent and asked us here checking out there in the middle of barcelona these are ongoing a pro independence demonstrations that of course it was on october the first that catalonia held its referendum with ninety percent of voters said to have chosen to break away amid allegations of widespread or talent from the national police but it's not the only region with its fate still undecided catalans are holding their breath after the drama of the referendum will they end up sticking with spain after all all really go it alone and. i winning the referendum hasn't always been 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 i'm calling on you to say no to this recipient of memorandums that's destroying europe. when an overwhelming no to a stereotype was returned caved in to the troika anyway it was 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 this struggle for independence the self proclaimed region in moving 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 states from iraq the territories the region held an independence referendum almost ninety three percent voted in favor of going it alone. now this is a new era for the kurdish people it is a turning point and we have to. this is a big victory for the kurdish people that was almost two weeks ago and since then silence with the same. awaits to be seen. just on a. worldwide headlines continue in just a. claim .
bidding by participating in ati's programs it names of prominent lawmakers who have appeared on shows such as going underground and news thing it gives the precise number of their appearances on the fees reportedly paid to them the times claims it's all part of the kremlin to extend its reach within british politics. has been taking a 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 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 talked to quite a few of the politicians friends list in this article do you think that it's a fair assessment so 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 named jake in this story m.p.'s politicians from all around the world for 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 cool been the channel has been attacked in a prospect 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 of 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 pointed if russian politicians are appearing on the b.b.c. they must be there for helping out of the british prime minister. as well as social media johns 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'd be subjected to greater regulation about raise concerns about freedom of speech to different viewpoints on the issue. 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 is no way of holding those who post to account. kalil in
bridgeville you know who are you you know where are you i think is an incredible accessories 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 return to 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 can't 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 all the government to say that you shouldn't be putting stuff all social media which you couldn't say face to face to somebody and that's a pretty fundamental principle a thing to be problems for 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 there because if you're not going to be able to day code to say anything negative about homosexuality or and the thing negative about islam then that is an infringement on freedom of speech but just slacking 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 far more to clean up their act . but all those freedom of speech issues what is your definition of what is terrorist material versus. political opinion and i facebook has been left i rather red faced off for a p.r. stunt by its chief mogs talk about turned into a public relations disaster. area
. in the same place where big night out we thought it was going to find out very well and i think we can really feel like we're here do you know any good street to be completely flooded you can you can go see this for i mean this is and this is what it looks aging crazy to feel like. yeah all right so you want you to get to a place somewhere else yeah maybe back to california.
you. are like the. area. we. feel. a libyan humanitarian pieces. will take his case to the european court of appeal on thursday. here seeking justice after his entire family was killed an endo asked reich it was june twentieth when seven rockets hit al had made these family home in the small town of sort of tripoli among the thirteen people killed in what nato called a precision strike where his wife two children his niece and his aunt the alliance claims the strike was conducted on a regime command center l m e d's case against nato had previously been dismissed
by the court of first instance referring to the organization's immunity his lawyer claims there are vast contradictions in nato 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 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 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 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 that they didn't say it's a mistake are that 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 hours. yes. which of course would be a war crime maybe just to terrorize old those who would be suspected of being too close to the former regime terrorizing into them into capitalization something like that. he is a humanitarian activist and the founder of an international organization for peace care and relief in libya well i would say 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 and how many had the opportunity. to bring such a case in brussels which is of course much more difficult for people living in rule or a rural areas poor people who 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 well thanks for sharing a thursday with us here on r.t. international news returns in about half an hour.
