how's that strategy will be successful very critical daryn time to sit down and talk. u.s. presidential hopeful fails to make it through to the next round of democratic debates despite becoming the most searched candidate online he's not questioning the d.n.c. selection process. also this hour a french marriage vows to appeal after losing his battle to protect people in his village from harmful pesticides we get reaction from locals. i think the government is new do need jobs they're the 1st to see that there should be no pesticides the do nothing we breathe easy pass the site we did your intestine the amount of pesticides we found was alarmingly high. and deep os my documents reveal that 20 years ago the u.s. knew in the news that would use terror to try and stop east timor from becoming
independent but failed to act. and watching our 2 international bring you your live news update from our studio here in moscow welcome to the program. one of the most popular democratic presidential hopefuls has failed to call for qualifying for the next round of t.v. debates hawaii representative tolson cowbird was the most searched for counted it on google after the last 2 t.v. showdowns but this time around the d.n.c. it says she has failed to meet the criteria required something called into question . whole process really lacks transparency. people deserve having that transparency because ultimately it's the people who will decide who our democratic nominee will be and alternately who our next president commander in chief will be and when you see that lack of transparency it creates you know
a lack of faith and trust in the process it's primetime television if you want to be anybody in the democratic party you better make sure you get on the stage at the presidential debates so what do you need to do to make it 2 things 1st get over 130000 unique donations to get at least 2 percent in a national poll ah but here's where it gets tricky not every poll is the same and if the democratic national committee doesn't like you they can reject the poll results that show things in your favor now tulsa gabbert has met the donations threshold he's got over 2 percent 126 different national polls however the democratic national committee says that doesn't count they have their certified list sure it's important of that information it's being provided but let's take a quick look at some of the polls that were rejected politico the economist reuters if these widely respected outlets and news agencies aren't credible in america then who is holing in the united states there is
a club. a network of close associates and friends and they frown upon those polls that are either new or are now members of the club or the association so i would certainly speculate that that has something to do with that it is a partisan organization the democratic national committee so any poll say that may have a tradition of leaning republican or not considered to be in the mainstream of democratic artists and ship you know would be would be ruled out even the polls deemed credible by. the democratic party have a margin of error of between 2 and 6 percent and when the criteria for being in the debates is only 2 percent a margin of error like that is a pretty big deal so tulsa gabbert could have between 0 and 7 percent support among american voters now keep in mind there are over 200000000 people who are registered
to vote in the united states of america so what's the difference between 0 and $14000000.00 well whatever it is it is apparently not important to the democratic national committee there is a margin of sampling error so if the margin of error is plus or minus 4 percent what is 2 percent in the polls if if it's 1.51 percent that the candidate has then does get rounded up to 2 percent whereas the 1.44 percent which is meaningless one can argue the democratic national committee is a private organization we can establish our own rules but then they also have to be open to the charges by somebody like gambler who says this doesn't smell like it's fair and frankly i agree with there i don't think it's mills that is fair now the d.n.c. doesn't exactly have a reputation for impartiality and fairness leaked emails in 2016 show that the
democratic party leaders were working pretty hard to defeat bernie sanders and make sure that it was hillary clinton who ultimately took on donald trump now after the outrage in 2016 the new democratic party chair tom perez promised to empower grassroots activists i am more committed than ever before to restoring votes is faith in the democratic process because even the perception of impartiality when unfair advantage undermines our ability to win that is unacceptable to that end the new d.n.c. under my leadership is committed to the topic of making sure that all 2020 nominating process will be unquestionably fair and. byron's so as the list of candidates gets whittled down to one final nominee voters will have to decide as to whether mr perez is living up to his promise. r.t. new york meanwhile another democratic 2020 presidential hopeful bernie sanders has
come under fire for a remark about china the u.s. under praise beijing's efforts to reduce poverty prompting condemnation from politicians and the media as r.t. is my god he explains it's the strangest thing there is bernie is one of the leading democrat candidates for the nomination and that of the blue goo is it does something that new god fearing american should ever do said something almost complimentary about china. is a country that is moving unfortunately in a boat with or where you number of directions but what we have to say about china in fairness to china and its people sure is if i'm not mistaken they have made more progress in addressing the extreme poverty. so in any country in the history of civilization bad bernie good thing there are patriotic journalists free media and honest politicians to remind me that it's not nice to say nice
things about china it was seen as bernie basically praising the chinese communist party you know which is probably killed more than any other regime on earth do you think this will be a problem for him going into the general election i think. as we think than it was a wild way to answer that question well the chinese socialists killed millions of poor people so there's that dead people are poor just dead they call that the great leap forward and after that they used a tool that bernie despises capitalism i wish there was a visual metaphor for bernie's argument. i just have to keep watching i don't know why just to bring everyone up to speed what bernie meant is near enough food see years ago about 9 out of every 10 people in china lived in poverty 9 out of 10 today 2019 it's one
in 100 people one person in every 100 that's below the poverty line is that astounding yes that is great news for a 1000000000 people yeah but it's china if we lived in a fair world that send them a congratulation note and flowers. china does something bad to raise hell about it does something good very well ignore it. russia forget brought here if they want to join us are knocking out isis that is just fine as far as i'm concerned worked together to beat a monstrous group that's killed untold thousands and soon terror world. wide work together not a few are god fearing american donald trump believes that russia is our great ally against isis in syria but what russia is doing in syria is setting up missiles that
only shoot down planes which isis does not have i think it's incredibly naive to think that vladimir putin would do anything in the u.s. press interest and then you may run among u.s. presidents forgetting things like when jimmy carter praised yes praised hugo chavez well no he didn't really praise him but just to close we came to know a man who expressed a vision to bring profound changes to his country to benefit is specially those people who had felt neglected and marginalized and once again the free media and patriots had to remind mr carter the chavez is bad and venezuela together with china and russia iran maybe turkey a little north korea definitely geez bernie better grab a pen them and more than a bad these and even if they do what america does you can't compare the 2 because
you actually can compare them it's entirely possible and even reasonable but because. just don't try to sound out when journalist about president vladimir putin being a killer a lot of killers go to kill is what you think our country so it isn't. well it's technically right but it's not what america wants to hear one patriotic american put it and no i don't think there's any equivalence i do think america is exceptional america is different i think there's a clear distinction here and when you're exceptional you don't have to make sense you would just special you do but in the end be quite so nice. to hong kong now where 2 leaders of the anti-government protests that have grips the chinese territory have been released on bail they were arrested earlier in the day on suspicion of organizing an authorized rallies one more protest leader was
arrested on thursday and remains in custody for now hong kong authorities have refused permission for a planned march on saturday and the event was called off in response but it's unclear whether or not protesters will turn up anyway one of those released on bail today is the leader of the pro democracy party joshua long he rose to prominence during the 2014 umbrella movement earlier this month a photo of wong meeting a u.s. consular official reignited suspicions that western governments are meddling and hong kong china specialist andrew long who's currently in hong kong says the protesters are inciting violence. in the international press it's also highlighted that this is. seen as suppression of freedom of expression suppression of all people is a separation for democracy but only to have and i think the world also has witnessed people demonstrations in recent weeks over
a 1000000 law some people said even 2000000 people marched on them on the streets by peacefully so there is little that all of them will the expression i think what the government most of the public does is they want to be disrupting it putting barricades at will attacking police stations this rotten. international airport and also causing both of the palm of even all the resistance. a french mayor has lost his fight to protect people and his village from pesticides although he banned their use a court overruled him and he's now appealing that decision however his case has inspired other mayors across france take some more action i shall achievements reports. this tiny breton village of language has found itself at the center of controversy in the battle over the pesticides in may the local mag to court some saw as being
a bold decision to ban the use of pesticides within $150.00 metre cordon over the village farming unions were furious on the matter and did up in court now the man daniel coeff had his ban overturned but the debacle is now shining a light on the deep political contradictions so rounding pesticides in france well president might call and praised his intentions for tackling like phosphates a burning issue over health concerns he said the solution was not to issue a decree that doesn't comply with the law so macko if that's a double standard. i don't understand what is happening across and the ecology minister said that i am right and doing a good thing to protect my people but in the meantime i'm facing court for a decision to keep pesticides at a distance of 150 metres i don't understand politics now it seems the decision by the court to take his ban all pesticides was illegal has also earned good residence
in this usually sleepy village. shown to children wit lots of fields around lung where and it's important health matter for us especially for children we breathe the in the press the sites we did your intestine the amount of best decides we found was alarmingly high even though we eat organic and we grow some of our own food that is also organic. because it was a bad judgment and the mayor wasn't heard i think the government isn't doing its job they're the 1st to see that there should be no pesticides but they do nothing or so i honestly think it was a bad legal decision by the court your needles in the genes are cured. we are in a small village that is close to a farming area we need to protect people too we never know what kind of health issues could be created by pesticides so i think the decision by the mayor was intelligent and he needed to make
a decision to protect the people but now he has difficulties with the justice system the world health organization has said gleich phosphate often used to weed killer probably causes cancer while gulf phosphate has hit the headlines over health concerns not corn had promised to ban the use of phosphate by 2021 that provoked an outcry by farmers in unions who said they needed an alternative mark and then pushed the ban back to the following year when the current license will expire now across france the ban imposed by mcewan has gained traction he may have lost the 1st battling court but now a round 20 other mayors have followed his lead banning the use of pesticides close to homes while farmers are furious and decry these bans as being politically motivated saying they are getting on the environmental bandwagon ahead of my aural elections. mayors are already thinking of the next election environmentalists are
wreaking havoc on our agriculture and our only factories floundering in this these mayors are outstanding scientists they are taking advantage of people's fear to make this kind of decision which is good for their image is protectors of the environment and the population but it seems the government has been backed into a corner there must be a minimum distance between residential areas and best decided sprain i will advise in the coming days forming unions and the companies that produce pesticides ashore to have something to say about that but so too does make us who believes that these things all the. only way to protect people who live in their farms which use pesticides otherwise he says the health is screwed so let's even ski faulty language it in for to me. still to come in the program newly declassified
documents reveal america's role in indonesia's decades long occupation of east timor story and more after the short break. most people think just stand out in this business you need to be the 1st one on top of the story or the person with the loudest voice of the biggest raid in truth to stand down the news business is just the dance the right questions and demand the right answer. question. so seem wrong. why don't we all just don't call. me.
yet to say proud disdain become educated and in detroit because the trail. when so many find themselves worlds apart we choose to look for common ground. welcome back to the program is tomorrow on friday marks 20 years since a new one back to vote and a bloody decades long occupation by in the nation forces and pave the way for it to become an independent nation australian prime minister scott morrison has arrived in east timor's capital to attend the celebrations along with other dignitaries 2 decades on there has been little justice for the families of those who died and
posts in the pendants for independence referendum violence which was eventually qual by australian led united nations peacekeepers is a quick look back at east timor story. do you think it's really. this was the. reason. i decided to contribute to the force in a limited but essential way. including communications i'm not just to call
a. intelligence airlifts of personnel and material in coordination of the humanitarian response response to the tragedy the violence sense is apparent to all of us who care about human dignity and democracy now newly declassified documents reveal that the us knew months in advance that indonesia would try and disrupt the vote in washington refused to act instead of pushing for closer military ties with jakarta picks up the story. all those declassified u.s. security papers so many times they lead to red faces and some very uncomfortable moments in august 29th one release revealed american officials were perfectly aware of what the indonesian military was up to the cia notes said their methods were to cue drive or intimidate into silence independents and to the general population
into acceptance of phonies to more underage account as control at the pentagon was at the time very keen to keep up with with indonesia there's another document which shows a us admiral referring to the head of the indonesian army as a friend digging a bit further into the past has led us to more awkwardness or even ugliness how about this on the part of australian diplomats in the seventy's an embassy memo pointed ad daily torturing raping and exit puting the captured population on the island of to more yes back then that was also on the hands of indonesian troops the ugly part is this handwritten remark by an aussie diplomat it says sounds like fun another dark page in indonesian history was when the government got rid of hundreds of communist sympathizers throughout the sixty's guess who helped put together the lists of alleged communists the u.s.
embassy here's how one of its staff recalls that support it really was a big help to the army they probably killed a lot of people and i probably have a lot of blood on my hands but that's not all bad there's a time when you have to strike hard at a decisive moment so again there's hardly any doubt the americans knew exactly what the rulers and charge in jakarta were like and so time magazine found no better words to describe their rise to power than the west's best news for years. in asia so there's fraud to do watch out for any redness on the face of the assistant secretary of state or perhaps you'll need some very powerful optics well i think unfortunately most countries including the us back in the 1990 s. and the early to thousands would would be guilty of engaging in political alliances for geo political aspirations and for things other than preserving the rights of
other people of course a state government's 1st priority should be to its own civilians but unfortunately we don't see that in many countries now that being said what we're talking about it needs to more in indonesia since the us had interest with the indonesian government and the military and were actions were taken alliances made and even violence allowed to preserve an interest to preserve an interest of the administration but it is true that countries all governments should absolutely make sure that the 1st priority is the maintenance of their people their own economy before they go into to preserve other interests in another place even if it's under the false guise of human rights. let's take a look at some world news in brief a state of emergency has been extended to all florida counties with hurricane dorian thought to make landfall on the u.s. east coast locals are bracing themselves and have been stockpiling provisions multiple flights have already been cancelled and experts say during could be the strongest hurricane to hit the east coast in nearly 3 decades. the move.
finally clashes between students and police arrested in the chilean capital students are protesting against a new law that gives schools the politics spell students involved in riots. and thousands attended the 75th anniversary of the national uprising and sold slovakia about $200.00 in the new vehicles to a session. vice chairman of russia's federation council also attended the commemoration speaking at the event she says what the nazis did to slavs and jews must never be forgotten. that's a global news update for this hour but don't forget you can always had to our website r.t. dot com for the details on all those stories and many more. just
for this interview but you both to the statistics are stupid actually of course. bush should. spin. spruced she. is an officer of the family told him to get up off the ground began to pat him down . and then freeze on the sounds of. the grown man like mislead essentially. through his. wish to go away from the office or leave the joy out of his career. the obviously did a kind of a lunge for the web in one's midst and then when it happened on she swung at constitutions didn't you know i never saw any contact with. any kind of went back to where they were so the answers back here they're try again 15 feet apart at this point and that's when the officer is gonna need to turn 3.
bernie sanders announces a plan to save journalism and clamp down on social media platforms and donald trump is telling his followers to find an alternative to fox news we're breaking down both announcements on this edition of. welcome to politicking i'm matthew cook in for larry king this week senator bernie sanders put forward in an op ed his plan to save journalism in america and further states that as president he would appoint law enforcement officials to clamp down on the likes of facebook and google to keep them from exercising too much control over the media industry and on wednesday donald trump shocked many by stating that his long cherished fox news channel isn't working for him anymore and he's telling his followers to look for an alternative to the conservative news channel trump 2 has long criticized the digital platforms of
a bias against him and republicans lots to break down and take a look at on this episode and for that i'm joined by john i to roland award winning host of the young turks and the damage report on the young turks network and michael knowles host of the michael noll show at the daily wire and author of the book reasons to vote for democrats a comprehensive guide they join me in studio welcome guys thanks for having me so let's talk about this bernie sanders pad to begin with he wants to reform journal did you guys read it i did the little bit longer than your book it isn't involved it's infinitely longer than my book but i did read it and as is often the case with bernie i actually think he frequently identifies the real problems identifies correct problems decreasing wages problems with immigration problems with in this case big tech coming in and clamping down on journalism i am all for taking down big tech i am all for breaking them up and reducing their power their interest they
control the flow of information around the internet obviously conservatives talk about this a lot because there have been high profile incidents where conservatives have been targeted some of my own videos have been taken down on various platforms. and i think that this affects the left as well and i think it affects everyone in the middle nobody wants a few companies to control the flow of information where i disagree with bernie is on his solution which is to give the government more taxing power to go in take money from these companies and then give it to some government sponsored news organizations i don't want the government to control my news or back news organizations any more than i want big tech to have control over it john let's get your overview of the bernie sanders up at and then we'll get into some of the points you just say so i think for anyone who hasn't seen it hasn't read it yet he does identify big tech that he talks about facebook he talks about google and i'm not comfortable at all with companies having that much influence economic influence over creators the ability to determine whether or not they can pay their rent but also just access to the news in the 1st place at this point whether you're on the
left or the right or wherever you pretty much have to use these platforms and that's not necessarily best for american journalism but he also identifies large corporations and wealthy individuals who are buying up media outlets around the country owning more and more. you know they've changed the rules in terms of how many different outlets you can own in a particular area and all of this is happening at the same time that more and more communities are losing their small newspapers or more independent local news as well something like 1400 communities in the past 2 years of lost a newspaper thousands of journalists have lost tens of thousands in the past couple of decades some like 3800 journalists lost their jobs in the last year and you can't lose 3800 journalists without losing something else something probably important to democracy and so i'm glad that he has a solution that he has set of solutions and also i think it's savvy because you know whether you're a natural bernie sanders supporter or a hard core maga head you have issues with the media and you.
