tv The Day - News in Review Deutsche Welle January 16, 2018 9:30pm-10:00pm CET
i hope that this will make us more ethical persons what would life be like as a cyborg. what do you think will happen society terms of the human race we need to upgrade i think it's only the beginning of this site works human machines starting february first on t w. and image from inside the trump white house and the way they were a year ago steve benen was the presidential insider then came fire fury and the fallout tonight the political prince who became a pauper with a story did so under oath i burned off in berlin this is the day. the president faces
a great many began to be treating the president. pretty quick i think he spent a lot more time with reporters that he ever did with the president listen i like steve i'm grateful for for the time he gave me two hundred interviews but still they haven't i think we've seen a side that is frankly very very disappointing trump is now trying to sue banyan to slander and i don't want to put him in more hot water than he was already in i guess sloppy steve brought him into the white house quite a bit and it was one of those things that's why sloppy steve is now looking for a job. also coming up tonight they watched the video said it to their friends and then the police kaye tonight more than one thousand young people in denmark are facing charges of distributing kiddie porn. have you
seen it yes i have have you yes i shan't the video i think it has a lot to do with that. own we begin the day with steve bannon and the people getting in line to hear what he has to say today we learned that robert mueller these special counsel investigating possible ties between russia and donald trump has subpoenaed bat in to testify before a grand jury that's what the new york times is reporting now this is the first time a lawyer has subpoenaed a member of trump's inner circle now that makes it a big deal but we still don't know how valuable bannon's testimony could be members of congress well they may know much more earlier today van in a ride on capitol hill where he was questioned by the house intelligence committee behind closed doors the committee is investigating russia's meddling in the two thousand and sixteen election as well as possible ties between russia and mr trump . last week as the world got its first read of the new tell all book fire and fury
by michael wolff the quotes from steve benen were the ones that shocked and stuck in the book banning uses the words treasonous and unpatriotic to describe a meeting between a russian official and trump's son in law jared fish there and trump former campaign manager paul man a fourth of that led trump to lash out giving band in the new nicknamed sloppy stevie but the author of fire in fury says there is a method to what could seem to be bannon's man. but i also think that that he he had a plan here and the plan was that he was going to get roy moore elected in alabama. and and that would have made made steve bannon the kingmaker and donald trump the loser given steve benen enormous amount of leverage going into the two thousand and eighteen election and my book i suspect
was part of his play and to break with donald trump who frankly he considers an idiot. for a new love loss there is a piers i want to pull in my colleague now who has spent the past year writing and rich is very significant because it would be the first time that mr miller is issuing a grand jury subpoena to seek information from from a member of the president's trumps inner circle and it would be a clear signal that the investigation is intensifying and not going to be concluded soon so it has to be confirmed but if you ask me i'm sure that it's very obvious that mr miller would like to speak to steve benen because of his very critical role during the trial come pain because of his critical role in the white house in the early days and because of his comments and michael walzer fire and fury
book and were steve benen was quoted as saying that he expects the miller investigation to focus on money laundering soft course i would assume that mr willow but the miller would like to know wherever steve benen was just talking or whether he has actually have he has knowledge of what he was talking about mr mueller of course would like to do something that you've already done and you have met steve berry and you've interviewed him in fact that interview was part of your new documentary on the first year of the trump presidency which is airing right now here on d w we've got a clip from your talk with ben and let's take a look. and on has left breitbart and when i met him he seemed to be enjoying this conflict has struck me as dana and self-absorbed. the institution of the media is just another average figure in fact i think news is the
least bit the nickel i call the opposition party. that's actually not true but information today is part of political warfare. all right you know again i'm going to say kudos to you for telling him we're not politicians as if you had forgotten that but alexander let me ask you what when through your mind immediately following that exchange with mr ban you know i thought well he likes to fight he really likes his crusade against other so-called mainstream media he when you question his use he is sort of getting in there are throwing punches and that reminds me of president strum but then during this event what i found more interesting or even to be known as scary being there in alabama and listening to mr bannon was the way how he was able to manipulate he's audience how he was able to
so a suspicion and hatred against democrats again the republican establishment and of course against us the media and how popular his message was there we know that he testified today behind closed doors in front of the house intelligence committee do you think steve benen now has an axe to grind with trumpet is he going to offer information that will make a difference in the collusion investigations. well when he has if he has this sort of information then i would say that the white house should be wore it i mean still is steve benen has lost his influence but he was a very important figure in the white house during the trial in campaign and he was advising for example president on how to deal with the miller investigation so who he could tell the president was call curating with the probe or actively
trying to block it if he wants he could reveal a lot i think but the question is whether he's going to do it i would assume if he wants to make a comeback to win back his conservative donors he will be very careful choosing his words before we run out of time alexander january twentieth marks one year of the trump presidency you've been there the entire time what condition would you see our profession is in after a year of president wrong. you know at the beginning of this year i was trying to my main goal was to trying to explain what president would like to achieve and why and it's sort of changed during the course of this time not because we as journalists wanted to change but because of president trump his controversial comments he's tweets the way he behaves here at home in the u.s.
and its meetings with world leaders and all that well leads to lats to the fact that the now reporters i are asking the president of the united states wherever he is a race is wherever he is fit for office and that's used to the president's behavior yeah if you have not seen by the way if you haven't seen alexander's documentary on covering the first year of the truck presidency i highly recommend it you can watch it on demand simply go to d.w. dot com or you can find the link on twitter alexander of fun nah that's your handle i've posted it on my feet as well brit go off t.v. take a look at it alexander as always thank you very much. well will briggs it ever happened last week top brigadier nigel farrar said that he would like a second referendum on the u.k.'s exit from the european union now that doesn't
seem widely as british parliamentarians are now debating the last stages of the brig's bill one of the sticking points all long has been the rights of the e.u. citizens in britain you don't use for involvement reports now on the three people who are feeling the brick sit back where. tea time and told go ahead months place close to timing one or. two friends of joint them because that's how it is polish and with who the daughter of german and british parents than us or us. the three e.u. citizens at this table represent a small slice of the continent they all moved to england full of appreciation for the country times since i came to britain you know like that for fourteen years ago no more now fifteen years ago i always found british british people and britain very friendly. the looming brecht's that has changed their lives the three of them
are part of a citizens' initiative called the three million person named after the number of e.u. citizens living in pretty woman who converted to the sick religion often encounters the rising hostility against non british residents since britain voted to leave the european union high months finding some friendships on what they used to be. when you have you see specially from people you know and you you learned to know for such a long time and you actually like very much exchanged christmas cards you have that now also and whatever and all of a sudden you are being an immigrant you are being exposed to this kind of. accent before that and all because he's from an e.u. country european union citizens in the u.k. have been concerned about their residency status since the breaks that vote i am just worried i only have the germ nationality at the moment so i need to do
a bit of research on how can i possibly obtain the british as well but it's a money question i have no funds whatsoever then you know i could get a u.k. passport because of her british mother but for others naturalization can cost thousands of euros. shopping and he's proudly wearing his scarf from his favorite german soccer team. at his local fish and chip shop he gets a mixed reception. the owners originally from india this employee came i hailed as pretty. we asked what she things of european union citizens. are fishing and i. should leave my wife because. that's why i'm in my head i know you've all been and things are not why i home on whites voice alter he continued fishing for details. so you would have to leave it for now but
let's face. it i think i mean you know that kind of thing coming to mind that i. don't know if i even know it's kind of why once the cameras are off she tells me she means e.u. citizens from eastern europe like talbott from poland she's picking up her son from school both of her children were born in britain she married her british husband and poland before joins the e he was working as a pastor in poland at the time said talbot has british citizenship now but getting it was difficult and that took a heavy emotional toll on the couple. and the uncertainty and then the expense as well and the length of time the fact that it took three months four months to sir replied to different letters and find out what was happening ended up causing a lot of tension even between us many people in his congregation are from of the
e.u. countries the breck said vote came as a hard blow for groups there were people were crying because it didn't feel accepted anymore that it will come down the street she has the and it's almost as though the whole of the brics situation justified racism because of the way it was spun said talbot is in a minority of one have she alone wants to stay in britain after it leaves the e.u. that was both a home run and say they've had enough of england they want to return to the continent. art i'm joined here now at the big table by john wirth he's a journalist and blogger here in berlin you know we love full disclosure john is not a briggs it's a year john it's good to have you back on the show so we've heard theresa may say time and time again the protection of the rights of the e.u. citizens in the u.k. is guaranteed what's the situation right now on a c i don't really fully believe that theresa may for many years has been opposed to immigration and wants to keep
the numbers of people coming to the u.k. down she also was the person who was home secretary instituting the very hardline taken by the u.k. government against migration and bear in mind also that we three million citizens living in the u.k. and only just over a year to go until break that happens is capable of actually processing. the documentation necessary and it's as much as people say why don't we fully believe that to reason may. actually stands by that do you believe that the u.k. right now is capable of processing that much red tape no i don't. that's one of the big concerns of the citizens in the u.k. is simply as we saw just heard in the report it takes so long for all of that to be processed and that leads to great insecurity in everyday people's lives and that's one of the big problems of price i want to talk about what we heard from the president of the european council doubled to asc talking today in the european parliament take a listen to this clip if they. fixed if decision to leave.
it would become reality with all if they got that close a close if. there was a change of heart then. we haled a continent haven't had a change of heart. thank you. i mean while his arms are wide open and is theresa may willing to fall into them bear in mind the saying all too aware of the problems that are around the corner and he is more aware of various problems with around the corner breaks it pops into reason maze and when it starts to get very nervous for the u.k. some point in the next few months maybe the u.k. will be grateful for those words from toast today he's essentially saying i don't think that britain yet understands the downside still sees the consequences of what it is doing and maybe just maybe when it doesn't understand that the door is still
open for them well maybe he sees what's just around the bend and the fact that the reality is about to become very real right and bear in mind we're now almost halfway through the exit process of a fourteen months only until britain is due to leave the european union and britain is very very little to show from all of that period so far and they remind that whatever deal would have to be ratified the e.u. has said repeatedly it's got to have the framework of a deal in place by october of this year that is an incredibly tight timetable it is and then it brings me back to what we reported last week nigel farrar saying hey let's have a second referendum and let's get this thing solved once and for all that's a very unusual decision by nigel frosh to make that demand and it was met by a confusion on both pro e.u. and c.e.u. sides. i think if i were to paps interpret that as at least aware of how difficult
breaks it could potentially be and he wonders whether the government determination to see this thing through is wavering somewhat and maybe that's why he was willing to change his position on the referendum question still a moment don't quite believe that britain is going to have a second year referendum however but now we're about thirty seconds if there were to be a figure referral. based on what we've seen with the polling right now would the remainders seems the day it's not a foregone conclusion there is a narrow. lead for remain in the opinion polls at the moment is only a very narrow one bear in mind however that the campaign with be a second referendum would have to be radically different than it was. last year in the actual first reference john worth is always good to have you on the show great insights we'll be talking again soon but i'm sure. what tonight in denmark more than a thousand young people mostly teenagers could face charges of distributing child
pornography now that's after they shared video clips of two fifteen year olds having sex a danish police launched an investigation after they received a tip off from facebook and anyone found guilty would face a fine or prison time and they would be put on a child pornography register. it took just a few seconds to share the video of the young people who did so never imagine times serious the consequences would be. i am shocked and i also think it is strange that only one thousand people are being charged that it is not many more because there are so many who had the video there could be many more people charged for this i don't think it's fair if it is only this handful who are convicted when so many others are involved. investigators say the scale of the case is unprecedented most of the suspects under twenty five years old. it was good i'm
sorry it may be a prank but it can have adult consequences if you're convicted of distributing child pornography or you will have a criminal record and it will appear on the background check if you want to work with children that could have some ugly consequences there are many jobs in denmark where you need to have a clean record job. but the ramifications are also far reaching for the victims in the case the young couple featured in the video. the young people who were fifteen at the time the video was made have tried to put it behind them but they're reminded of it on a regular basis they'd like to forget about it but they can't so we must at least make sure they feel they're being taken seriously. the danish government wants the case to send a clear message i hope i hope this could be a wake up call for many young people to say it's illegal and not acceptable what we
have seen is deplorable. if convicted the defendants could appear on a child pornography register for ten years. it's very serious consequences and how did we get to this point where we are tonight to talk about that i'm joined now by to receive walker she is an editor at mother board of the tech and science but form from vice is good to see you again you know last night on the show we spoke with a former content manager with facebook and is that what we're looking at here that a continental juror received a complaint and said this looks pornographic and send it up for inspection is that what happened well most likely because as we all know facebook tends to be a big black box specially when it comes to their inner workings but what happened was that facebook received complaints and these complaints were received in not on the public platform but within facebook messenger which usually allows for one or many people to discuss something which is not public but assumed to be private and
i was reading the authorities are saying that the pornography charges could be thrown out by the judge because the judge could say listen all of these youngsters they didn't even realize that the two people were having sex were minors now if that's the case we certainly don't want to talk about this notion of pushing kiddie porn but if the judge can say they didn't the kids didn't know what they were looking at then how can facebook be able to say this looks like pornography yeah well there they are legally they are legally obligated to forward any complaints to a particular n.-g. o. in the u.s. that deals with possible exploitation cases on minors and since there are the n.g.o.s has been a safe and sorry for what a lot of. law enforcement and your own also in germany we get a lot of these complaints from this particular engine the head of cyber crime of the bench police and i spoke to today in germany gets about eight hundred thousand
to nine hundred thousand complaints each year we heard from the police to do. indeed mark saying that they really want to pursue this case they're being very hard with it because they want to send a message to young people that it's not ok to just see your images of other people doing these things and that's one point right that is one point another point is i think there is a case to be made for privacy so when you have a messenger system that you think is something that is a close communication line between two people you have to assume as especially if it's encrypt it that is bullet proof but facebook proves otherwise because if they receive a complaint they can actually decrease and read back into the most recent message as if that somewhere in the fine for them is disconcerting because if i'm going on to facebook messenger and i think that this is encrypted and i've been told that it
is that's a law i write if someone complains then a content manager has the authority and the ability to look into my message which means it's not encrypted really that you know you can find out about this when you click on the report button when you are with an messenger otherwise i personally have never heard of it so i mean there are systems messenger systems that are entered and encrypted that are still bulletproof i personally did not know that facebook can also read this message you don't know a lot because as we heard from this former continental last night there are these nondisclosure agreements that all of the content is have to sign the point is the transparency levels and facebook is so other social media platforms very it's very so we don't know what happens once we send a message or share something to yeah exactly what i do know what i can what it what i know now that facebook puts all of the links that have ever been shared into a giant database and so when
a complaint arrives about this particular link they can assign this thing an idea and find out all of the instances where that link has been shared and this is why i was seasoned. to filter out all of the data and forward it's the law enforcement along with the names and amazing amount of power work. that these companies have i mean you just you know you're not really aware and two you see a case like this tree's along as always thank you we appreciate your insights very valuable thank you thank you. and the day is almost gone but as always the continues online you'll find us on twitter either at news or you can write directly to me off t.v. don't forget to use that hash tag the day and remember whatever happens between now and then tomorrow is another day.
