and all over of our three americans doing the same we are verily better than blues . and see people you've never heard of love are down for the night on the roads of the world bank so very good a seriously send us an e-mail. a new york times editor andreas alleged acquaintance that you choose prevailing the way mainstream and social media manipulate the news. very rare cases to. try to make up for the fact that something isn't in the trunk but in those cases they. use somebody with intervention to make sure they're going to. encourage them to be there basically. archie films the legacy of islamic state in liberated areas of syria we go inside the terror group's former police station and prison where many innocent people lost their lives. and thousands of people
rally across catalonia as spain marks its national holiday with the region's future in doubt song for its independence declaration was postponed. those are the headlines coming to life from r.t. international here in moscow i'm kate partridge thank you for joining us. an online investigation website has exposed potential collusion between the new york times and you chub video was leaked by project very tusks which is going to name for uncovering uncomfortable truths behind the media very rare cases. to try to make up for the fact that something isn't in the treatment of. well the man caught on hidden camera is believed to be ernest petty according to his linked in
profile he is you change the brand and diversity curation lead well in the video he admits you change sometimes intervenes to change trending videos very rare cases will. try to make up for the fact that something isn't in the treatment ok it's very rare but in those days they still. use separate intervention to make sure that we. do. encourage the thing to be basically well petty's friend as he's described in another part of the of the clip by project veritas was also caught on camera saying he benefits from their relationship people should resort to something of a meeting for pages like your teachers out of over they don't know it's just words but for the security proper. when they close to dick is 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 what doesn't work as an editor i know he did research into what goes out but doesn't go out and that's really something that grows a story that we've got you just a few basic. rights and that's the way you do all this is. we requested a comment on the revelations from you chain but so far there's been no response while the new york times has already reacted well in a statement to the newspaper admitted dudek apparently violated their ethics code but it also claims he exaggerated the influence that he had at the outlet the communications director at project veritas 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 would 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 who's kind of the star of these first two videos was pretty clear about having worked for two presidential campaigns and wanted 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 necessary stopping most pressing 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 aren't bad the bastard child of that relationship is fake news. and the new york times is at the center of another story it's a previously claimed antivirus software produced by the russian based company casper ski had been used by moscow to spy on the u.s. however an investigation by germany cyber security agency says there's no evidence . to warn against the use of. evidence of misconduct by the company this is in itself it seems that the story behind has more questions than
answers it all started with the new york times reporting that the so-called russian hackers that the parent of the paper believes have connections with the russian government had been using kaspersky a lot of software to get classified information from the foreign intelligence and security agencies and kloden americas and as a national security agency the paper claims this information is coming from israel's officials who shared it with n.s.a. the n.s.a. the south refused to give any comment say they swore violate policy leaving all these quite clear well german is cyber security agency has been quick to claim that no evidence has been found to back these media reports i would say reports because shortly after the new york times article was published a lot of media picked up the story with quite catchy headlines like russia turned kaspersky lab software into a tool for spying because personal ad has called these allegations groundless
kaspersky has never held will help any government in the world would sign the espionage yes it's private held russia based kaspersky lab has been repeatedly accused of being involved in certain spike t.v. in the last two years eight has been always denying all accusations and all allegations but we still hear and them just recently washington has fun as far as going as far as banning all federal departments and agencies from using kaspersky services and now we have germany on the side of kaspersky say no evidence had been found to prove any involvement by the company any spying activity but given the. developments in the recent dynamic we can say that they solve are is far from over and we can hear more allegations in the future. now moving on to
syria and as the battle against eisel in there is all province continues r.t. has been traveling with the syrian army to get first hand experience from the front line isis is the key. here is one of the jihad just briefly showing himself whilst bringing the weight on full auto. well the syrian army is now advancing on iso positions to the northwest following the liberation of her however a years of islamic state control have caused winds count on to that village what i guess the air has witnessed the 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 don't doubt their own brand of justice offenses like owning a sim card being a syrian government worker or an infidel carried the death penalty. more. many of the 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 it taxes had to be paid to and if you couldn't pay in money you paid in goods. yes. there are there are. soldiers was still sweeping looking for isis hideaways and bombs had been cleared when we got there but not all that many booby traps and those they left seemed crude. uncharacteristic of isis suggesting that perhaps isis the north expect to lose so quickly more of guys deal. from that as syria. dozens of
people are protesting across catalonia on spain's national day as the impasse over the region's future intensifies tensions are high with clashes scene between pro and anti independence activists. spain's prime minister has said on monday deadline for the past one president to decide whether or not the region has adopted a declaration of independence parties and especially a check in a report from barcelona by the iconic french show must clam marcello now plus a council lumia right now and it's a c.e.o. was feeling this way are joining streets that are out here thousands of people if
you can see covered marching from that direction towards this where there's still didn't see anyone succumbing to the carrying that it was carried off my goodness was not to gather this is not true you wouldn't see protests where all of these people are coming out to speak in support of the things that's loaded with in spain as this major crisis continues to grow. the country and the region this is what people here have been telling us we've lived here for fifteen years we've got married had children and grandchildren we want spanish catalonia together that's all we want you to know that we have to fight. for these to get that on here spain because it's the better for all i know you should stay with spain for sure but i think that the government should take these and for the people to get to know what we actually want or one i don't have people want their president of the year to be
house by only to the law thank you should assume because it was. right that i did that. until sunday so i don't either that's a load of actually in fact it cleared and supplied. god come out on tuesday and make statements that. because i said i have. no sinuses ok for several days. they see i discuss details with the trainer well the spanish prime minister mariano rajoy has made it quite clear that the deadline he's giving to the council on leadership is this monday to announce whether they're in or out because so far they're saying the only thing they see is confusion let's take a listen in at council on president has to confirm whether any of the authorities proclaimed independence have got the lonny or whether his speech held on tenth of october included the corporation up independence it's a simple question. you know if the answer is positive or there is no answer at all
we will demand mr president to revoke the independence to gratian so obviously developments are rattling quite rapidly here and that's a lot of these people questioning the top was the chip kelly coaching but you have to think like that so many people thought it was that's right like they're losing interest shooting to couldn't sleep despite this political crisis that they're praying to him because so many people voted on the first referendum and this is going to be she that's what this reach that's. all pro unity protests as can be seen embracing local catalan police the scenes have surprised some as many regional officers came out against unity with spain during the referendum some catalan police trying to prevent the civil guard from using excessive force against voters. well that's allowed here how this referendum on october the first with
ninety percent of voters opting to break away with the fate of the region still in the balance a look now at how victory in a referendum doesn't always mean getting what you voted for. catalans are holding their breath after the drama that referendum will they end up sticking with spain after all really go it alone and. i 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 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 suppressed caved in to the troika anyway it was 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 ploy to implement it next up because this struggle for independence the self-proclaimed region in northern 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 it alone. for 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 on cancelling we are a waste. see. now i have some breaking news here on r.t.
international washington has announced that the united states are withdrawing from unesco the un's educational scientific and cultural organization as one of the main reasons the state department cited concerns over the organizations alleged anti israel buyers who six years ago member states voted to accept the state of palestine into unesco that was a move which angered israel and its ally the us. meanwhile greenpeace activists have exposed a major security failing at a power station in france but story come on to the break.
welcome back greenpeace activists have exposed a major security filing in from self to breaking into a nuclear power station and setting off fireworks. was. some spectacular pictures there of more on this we can now cross live to charlotte do bensky artie's correspondent who's in paris why the loss here means so what the intentions behind this stand. well the fifteen greenpeace activists gained access to this nuclear power station in the eastern part of france early on thursday morning they say to highlight security concerns about nuclear power stations across france now what happened as you saw there the fifteen activists gained access to the site climbing a fence and then were able to unfurl a band there and to light fireworks they say at the bottom of the spent fuel pools
this is where the radioactive material once it's been used is stored now they say this was about highlighting those security concerns vulnerabilities of security around france's nuclear power stations and that's because this week the campaigning organization actually launched a report in which it had information collated from a number of international experts about some of the security risks that were posed to these nuclear power stations in france now that report highlighted things such as concerns over security shortcomings and said that france's reactors mainly have been built before the morton types of terrorism that the country now faces such as those attacks from groups such as isis or al-qaeda and it says that this was purely a stunt to outline really what it said in its report earlier this week now which is the company which looks after this particular site in france has responded and said
that this incident was dealt with within minutes the police were on the scene and it says that the greenpeace activists did not gain. any access to any nuclear area is a tool but as you can imagine this is promoted a lot of criticism for both sides here in france people taking to social media to criticize both greenpeace and e.d.f. themselves now if we look at the criticism that's been leveled at greenpeace today some people saying that this action was completely irresponsible when france has been subjected to a number of terrorist attacks over the last few years other people questioning was it a good idea to be setting fireworks off in an area over that much concern if they're trying to highlight concerns and then other people questioning the security at this site saying that even the boss of e.d.f. some people calling that he should be sacked and that there is a huge concern over the security of their sites now this comes because france is
one of the most nuclearized countries in the world seventy five percent of french electricity is generated from nuclear power plants this is a main source of energy here in the country and the country has fifty eight reactors so the idea is to hide these concerns and regardless of whether you are in the for the against camp or even wanting to remain on the fence in regards to this argument one thing is clear greenpeace of highlighted a severe lack of security i did very important site that could be at risk of a terror threat in the future. good. person you very much indeed about thank you. now a libyan peace activist says persisting with his fight for justice six years after his entire family was killed in a nato air strike. of the world take his case to the european court of appeal on thursday where seven rockets hit hit else comedy's family home in sort of man near
tripoli back in june twenty seventh among the fifteen people killed were his wife two children is nice and his aunt nato says they observed the scientists. long period of time to prevent any unnecessary casualties they also claim the strike was conducted on a regime command center. of this case against nato had previously in dismissed by the court a first instance going to make organizations immunity but his lawyer claims the contradictions in a says exploration of the spies. are 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 observed 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 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 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. we have more on the breaking news story here is r.t. international washington has announced that bin. i just states are withdrawing from unesco the un's educational scientific and cultural organization as one of the main reasons the state department cited concerns over the organizations alleged israel bias was six years ago when the states voted to accept the state of palestine into unesco a move which angered israel and its u.s. ally. with about with more news at the top of the.
about your sudden passing i've only just learned you were yourself in taken your last wrong turn. you're out to you as we all knew it would i tell you i'm sorry if only i could so i write these last words in hopes to put to rest these things that i never got off my chest. i remember when we first met my life turned on each breath. but then my feeling started to change you talked about war like it was it gave still some are fond of you those that didn't like to question our arc and i secretly promised to never be like it said one does not leave a funeral in the same as one enters the mind gets consumed with death this one quite different i speak to you now because there are no other takers. to claim that mainstream media has met its maker.
or a. clone of welcome to all the parts for decades if not centuries russia's fascination of it geopolitics l. global leadership came at the expense of its own internal development of the soviet union sputnik into space before many of its citizens had running water and as last put in the vast internet regaining some of its lost international influence many of them still don't what will it take for russia to fully turn its ally just in a war it well to discuss that i'm now joined by russia's economic development minister. and i said it's great to talk to a thank you very much for a time. now russia i think is
a paradoxical country and it sounds the always being call. playing big on the global stage and merrily getting buy a home and i think that puts your ministry in their precarious position because development has never been our first priority will it ever be where it was was actually because if you're strong at home that you mean that you can be stronger globally that if there is russia really strong at home at the moment well it's improving it's improving the economy if you look at the results of the bus decades if you look what has happened was the in the machines the beginning of this century it's improved a lot it's improvement on terms of g.d.p. zero for industrial agriculture in different areas on the new technology also we are progressing so. just from well i know that the russian budget has long been your specialty and just a few weeks ago the government presented the draft of the next three year budget to the parliament already branding it as a plan for development.
