tv The Day - News in Review Deutsche Welle January 15, 2018 11:02pm-11:30pm CET
twisted and tweeted ad nauseum with america first tonight defiance to the third degree russia turkey and the palestinians rejecting u.s. power wielded by a president named trump i'm broke off brylin this is the day. should i make it clear. that we do not accept america as mediator between us and israel. this is really new to us should be done fortunately our american colleagues and their allies who still want to do business based exclusively on ultimatums and dictatorship. should now the u.s. has acknowledged that it has its stop least in an army of terror along that country's border. because he's up to drown in this economy of terror before
a call. also coming up at policing content on social media we'll meet a woman who quit her job as a facebook cyber cop to save or sanity her story in about seven minutes we begin the day with these slap of the century now that is how palestinian president mahmoud abbas has described u.s. president trump's decision last month to recognize jerusalem as israel's capital abbas has rejected any future role of the u.s. as a mediator in peace talks with israel say should be ashamed of himself it was a day abbas added his own fuel to the fire when he put into doubt the oslo accords from one nine hundred ninety three of that agreement includes palestinians recognizing the state of israel. we said no to trump
and others no we will not accept his project. told him the deal of the century is the slap of the century and we will retaliate. and. abbas's voice was part of the very loud chorus the world heard today a chorus of defiance against and rejection of u.s. influence around the world today russian foreign minister sergei lavrov accused washington of refusing to recognize the multipolar geo political world that is taking shape point into trump's promise to torpedo the iran nuclear deal as an example of a trump white house that wields only ultimatums and dictates and then there is turkey today turkish president erda one warned that he will use military force against a planned the us backed and kurdish led border force in syria along the border with
turkey or one considers the kurdish p.k. k. party to be terrorists and armed confrontation could potentially see two nato members clash something unheard of until today. syrian government forces fire on rebel fighters in aleppo this some verified footage was posted online by the syrian government the syrian observatory for human rights say the army has captured dozens of villages in the past three days and is closing in on rebel forces further north turkey has threatened to attack the kurdish held town of a freend monitoring group say shelling has already begun ankara had been hoping for washington support instead a fresh conflict is brewing between the countries the us led coalition says it is setting up a thirty thousand strong security force to inhibit the activities of the so-called islamic state along the borders with turkey and iraq these areas are controlled by
the syrian democratic forces a u.s. backed militia alliance led by syrian kurds but turkey regards the kurds as terrorists and does not want them controlling territory along its border turkish president red chip tire paired one accuse the u.s. of acting against turkish interests should the article read occur now the u.s. has acknowledged it has a stablished an army of terror along our country's border. it's up to us to drown this army of terror before it's born almost. the syrian government and its key ally russia also denounced the coalition's plans at a news conference in moscow russian foreign minister sergey lavrov warned the move could lead to syria's partition. even if we take into consideration that i yes hasn't been completely destroyed as the americans say because some groups still remain. in the current us actions shows that they don't
want to maintain syria's territorial integrity the super cute. needs to be there in it so this new suit. despite being on opposing sides russia and turkey have recently supported each other in a bid to bring peace to syria it's unclear how tonight he's threats against a free might affect that cooperation in the future. are strong language there for more now we go to our correspondent dorian jones he's on the story for us tonight in istanbul good evening to you dorian i mean we've got ed a one here threatening to use military force against a u.s. backed border force in syria i mean how much of this is bullied to bully bellicose talk versus a real threat of armed conflict between two nato allies. well i think certainly that is what washington will be asking and neither is true the president urged one has made this threat many times before but this threat by far
seems to be the most serious and that's because turkey has been building up its forces on the border over the weekend there was a very heavy artillery bombardment in the african region this kurdish enclave of course in syria which president won and said that they will attack and we've also got unconfirmed reports already turkish commandos have been carrying out course appalled all praises into this region but there is one point here that are free and it's the one area there are no u.s. soldiers present so it does seem that. does carry out this is keen to avoid the nightmare some are scenario of turkish soldiers facing off against american soldiers during this judging by earlier ones reaction to his words today it appears that he was completely caught off guard by this u.s. announcement is that the case well it does appear to be the case which you have to realize that there has been this whole issue of the washington backing the syrian kurdish militia the white peachy has been
a major point of tension between washington and particular because washington has been arming this group for many many months now it did appear late last year some sort of agreement had been reached between the two presidents where the turkish president claimed that donald president donald trump had agreed to end the arming and was scaling back its support of this group now this this proposal of a thirty thousand strong front here force that was going to be mainly made up of syrian kurdish fighters has caused absolute outrage it does appear that has been shocked by this and they do thi this as another case of what they see as washington's hypocrisy if not outright for trail and what about the role of russia in this does does he have moscow's support. well that is a big question because moscow has been playing very much a double game here on the one hand it has been only too happy to see this deepening route between two nato allies and in fact been gravitating more and more towards
moscow causing more alarm in washington on top of that moscow has been supporting quietly behind the scenes the same syrian kurdish militia because they see the syrian kurdish militia as a very potent and important force in the future outcome of syria so we'll have in many ways to make a big choice if it does go ahead and launch its operation in particular because there are russian forces in this area of offering which is threatening to attack and on top of that is facing a big choice here and will be trying to calm tensions so it will not be forced to choose one side or the other endured before we let you go i mean when you get when you look at what's happening with turkey when you look at what we're hearing from russia and the palestinians to that do you get the sense that there is a border sense of a willingness to challenge u.s. influence and supremacy in the middle east or global geopolitics at the moment
but i think that will be other feeling that is coming across the region particularly because the turkish president has been so outspoken although he hasn't personally challenge president trump he does feel there are many ways he has little choice in that he feels that his country is facing this clear and present danger and the danger from the syrian kurdish militia which he believes will get only stronger given the fact it is receiving the support from both washington and moscow but the fact that he is seen to be openly challenging the superpower will lead to greater growing questions about how much power and influence washington does have in the region it appears to be a growing question as time moves forward doreen jones on the story for us tonight in istanbul dorian thank you very much. still to come on the day we'll go into overdrive and show you what's hot at the detroit auto show is over school motor muscles still the king of motown and where are the green fleets of cars we'll go on
to the server floor that's coming up in about ten minutes. social media platforms in tech giants are facing report cards and public grilling this week on both sides of the atlantic on wednesday u.s. congressmen will ask the c.e.o.'s of facebook twitter and alphabet about what they're doing and what they're not doing to keep terrorists and their propaganda offline here in europe but we will find out what the e.u. thinks of the latest efforts by facebook twitter and google to deal with hate speech online now there are no e.u. laws forcing tech companies to act yet but french president he isn't waiting any longer he plans to introduce legislation this year to ban fake news during elections and to force tech companies to polish their content. i've decided to change legal law to protect democratic life from fake news if. you can will
impose a trick the transparency rules on platforms for sponsored content to make public the identity of advertisers and those who control them also kept the money channel towards the contagion. well here in germany a new anti hate speech law took effect on january first designed to force social media platforms to remove hate speech quickly or face huge fines the law which is known as net d.g. puts the state at the center of a debate over free speech versus digital censorship germany is now recruiting armies of cyber content cops and a note on the language here in english people responding to hate speech reports are referred to as content moderators in german they are members of what's known as a unit lush team and if you transit light directly it means delete team now it may sound harsh at first but perhaps it's more to the point to and perhaps even more on
missed my next guest tonight spit three months inside one of those content management teams for facebook right here in berlin as she recounted her experiences and the reasons for leaving so soon in an article published in a german newspaper last week entitled three months in hell for. and tonight for you go to keene pones monday joins me here in studio three a at the big table i think that's an improvement from three months in hell borzou it's good to have you on the show for me we laugh ingrid about the tire but three months in hell what made what made it so bad. well thanks for having me again a bit surprised to be under the spotlight. while. what make it so difficult the way the work is organize was very constraining for it
to see. where you are in a factual way of that they just did slate well as many other people are working its way and i've been so far lucky enough to be able to work there differently and has just arrived to bill lane six months ago was looking for a job that i could perform with type influence into the engine and it's what i would find myself in this way but what is very specific here is. the violence that it's human contact you have to we work on a very violent content is a continent i'd like to i'd like to share a part of what you wrote about your time with facebook with our viewers you write i found myself in a factory world as part of a global digital proletariats i don't know whether we were producing anything but i
got the sense that we were helping to keep a multibillion industry running i sometimes had the impression that i was working in the emergency services and it other times in law enforcement i felt powerless as i couldn't intervene the only power that the content moderator has is to delete a post i mean this there are some profound faults there but did you really feel that your job was to keep a monster sized company in business. know this is will not be correct and what makes this work also difficult is the fact that the profession of quantum with directors doesn't exist and those performing does task our call it is call center agents and they paid. probably less than call center agents i think bloomberg called it the worst job in the tech
industry right now i'm not so familiar with other jobs but. in just a small record actions i haven't worked out before i was one of the outsourced review so this is horton but. you see the reason why i mean this paper got published the first the reason i wrote it i wanted to reflect to. try to have this done shit myself from this content that i be facing. a tell was every day you said you didn't have time at work ever to reflect on that you would be leading right and not listen that's correct and this is what i said that if you don't there's no space for really de-briefing inflecting on the impact that's contact can have on you the reason why i came i decided to write these were post after post unknowns and it was for me a way i know that you is very important to talk about something that has affected
you in order not to carry it with you for the rest of your life was and then. and again so while i had worked previously was color i mean i'm used to some kind of analysis and talking and communicating. well. i think it's special i'm affected by an issue i can i mean i was a as well myself. eyes of the the result of and i'm very grateful as well as i can show interest in them yeah i mean is that. then i felt the need to share them and as you as were there i had the impression of. helping multi-million duster to keep going on. that was not really a concern for me i was i think that isn't there what's most of my former colleagues
will agree with is that. i had the sense of responsibility and what i was doing was important. were you trained to be aware of that book tell you how important your job was that you know this. is very powerful. you know. that our job is important and that's what's we do it's important we know i mean we're doing the training that i enjoy very much and by the way was short it was the only time i was put into rock and reflects to short shorts yes and that we did have this kind of interaction after work. but. but you understand that. what you see really i mean i discussed at length about that. reflection of the society digital reflection some more first i was trying to
convince myself that i was exposed only to the most why i'm segment of society marginal but then when you just what you see is by some to person made of this kind of content to try to start questioning the whole. if this foresight has not become insane. did you or did you have any contact with the owners of the contact with the owners of the content to mean it let's say you decide. that something should be deleted you did you have contacted you explain why something was deleted is there any type of reason given to the person who posted it. so first we don't see at all the identity of the person who's behind to post their reports they can be seen or not says he can't decide on that but we don't see it even if we don't have time because we have to make our mind in some thirteen
seconds thirteen seconds to hand them over thousands of more thousand five hundred reports every day that amazing how to put into context however i mean that's as i read somewhere that was that more than six million reports were generated for it what ever reach me is must say that's right and means that there's an incredible amount of pressure put on you. do you feel like you were doing a job that maybe the state or the government should be doing instead i mean you were you basically since you're an information that's been posted did you feel that that responsibility was. too grouped in that the state had outsourced it to you now have this very important question and well i will say no no first i mean i don't think that i was censoring i really reflected the bar which my role was censoring i
don't think so i really felt much more with behaviors. then really speech because there is a great amount of it is for you i had the freedom to all things you have to freedom to challenge to upset i mean this is really i mean. but not behaviors and very. normal behaviors and behaviors that can cause real harm in the world if this station did just a job. not again. because that's what will happen at the end. that they will ship the most reports. from to private companies from this technology companies and with it can try to come with some that have solutions and so to support this from prado public sources perhaps there is still cannot be done by. you what you did was very important. and wish we had more time to talk about it but i will definitely
let our viewers know where they can read the piece that was in the paper too and up so that they can hear your story and learn a little bit more or as you go to get an appointment tonight telling your story about being a constant manager thank you thank you for having me thank you. well if you thought the future in motor vehicles promised green fleets of smaller cars well that future still appears a little ways off muscle still matters at least at the detroit motor show where big trucks and s.u.v.s are still killing us all the makers have dominated the market for years and the germans want in on the action mercedes benz even rolled out mr muscle himself. that's the so i love this card is my favorite is u.v. . yes even arnold schwarzenegger was on hand to promote the way his g.
class as you be and it was just one of dozens of new offerings in detroit americans still like their vehicles begin brash and the boom looks set to continue with low gas cost and accelerating u.s. economy. art let's get our man in the driver's seat tonight first if a nominee joins me now from the detroit motor show he's covering that event with their two legs and four wheels carson it's good to see you sir is this i mean it's hard to believe we're talking about this in twenty eighteen is this going to be the year of the gas guzzlers again. well yes and no i mean everybody here is talking about it's electric cars hybrid cars. ahead of time when he presented the new jeep full by four also promised that in a few years all models of messy disbands would also be on offer as electric cars
b.m.w. also very proud saying their market leaders when it comes to electric cars in the luxury segments like this i ate coop that you see here for only one hundred fifty thousand dollars i have to say so the electric cars here and everybody talks about them but basically of course this show is dominated by s.u.v.s pickup trucks trucks and so on and actually two thirds of all new cars on american roads are from the segments and cars when we were we look at what they are and what yours you're describing it begs the question have the europeans have they given up on trying to sell compact you know economical cars to the americans. no the heavens i mean. folks logon to w.
has chosen the detroit show to roll out its new jetta so classic sit down if you like and they also have all the other cars they also offering in europe or other areas they also offering here and so are all the other competitors and actually also the american ones the asian ones they all have the full range of cars but they have to accept the reality and that is once again that only a third of the cars that are sold in the us classic sedans and also only one percent of those new cars are electric cars so basically the industry is catering to the wishes of the consumers. we got about twenty seconds here diesel emissions scheme to what do you hear anyone talking about that in detroit. short mention from the north america c.e.o. of fox dog and but basically nobody talks about this and mostly all of the german
comics i've talked to they're very optimistic for this year and also for the next few years to come right our very young carson phenomenon with the best assignment in the show tonight in the driver's seat in detroit carson thank you very much. well the day is nearly done but as ever the conversation continues online you'll find us on twitter either at u.w. news or you can write to me bring it off t.v. don't forget to use the hash tag the day every member whatever happens between now and then tomorrow is another day we'll see you then everybody.
