a former u.s. intelligence chief say meddling is in russia's d.n.a. proof enough that the moscow continues to. politics the comment came in a c.n.n. documentary. britain's prince william former prime minister david cameron are embroiled in a corruption scandal over england's failed bid for the twenty eighteen world cup according to a long awaited report. criticism is leveled that the u.s. administration for failing to give solid proof to back its claims of the syrian government is preparing a chemical weapons attack. around
the clock across the world this is r.t. international from the team and myself you know me welcome to the program meddling is in russia's d.n.a. according to the former director of u.s. national intelligence james clapper not prove a small school is still making attempts to influence american politics he was appearing in a new documentary heard by the c.n.n. news channel during prime time in america is there any reason to believe that russia is not right now today continuing to attempt to infiltrate u.s. political organizations or individuals or are true or. do we think it's in their d.n.a. . or in the soviet era or no. joint have been known in the studio earlier to explain whether there was an actual smoking gun this
time around. so much anticipation over this latest special report from c.n.n. it was billed as the first comprehensive telling of on television of russia's attack on the two thousand and sixteen presidential race and also with jarring lessons for the american leaders and the public about more attacks still to come now who wouldn't want to watch this it seems like stephen was going to lift the lid on all of these unverified source is and then substantiated claims it's used in the past to russia bash with stories of daily basis but i'm afraid that's going to be a lot of disappointed viewers after this report because it's all the same old chuen is just repackaged in a new way a lot of music a lot of close up shots on president putin looking moody and mean or take a look for yourself some of his of. his prime target is the u.s. . story inside bush speech that would lead to these doorstep as all very familiar isn't it we saw a very similar documentary released by c.n.n.
before called putin the most powerful man in the world although there are plenty of nicely edited sound bites in this latest special report although i have to say probably an overindulgence on the shorts of soldiers marching through moscow. ideas of north korea but we both live in moscow we know this is not something that we see on a daily basis as a whole and i'm afraid the closest we come to seeing any solid evidence that russia was behind the attacks is this kind of evidence some of it surprisingly simple such as time stamp showing the factories were starting and finishing their work duties on moscow time we live in hope the viewers watching this will realize that most go shares a time zone with many other cities around the world and also do work nine to five jobs are known just one day before the airing of this special report three c.n.n. staff members resigned over and substantiated russia related story which c.n.n.
pulled just a few days earlier. and the date snowballed when it went from bad to worse off to that a producer for c.n.n. was saying that the networks russia cuffe which was more about ratings then being based on any solid facts with more details on the latest project veritas a leak. well a video has surfaced of a c.n.n. producer saying that most of their russia trumped coverage is well and more polite terms nonsense they want to see it constantly and. this is ratings this ratings raiser at all right now but honestly. it's just like. it's mostly right now we don't know. john. proof and it's not just one guy from c.n.n. who's saying that there's not much to this story of russia collusion there is no evidence that there was collusion but they couldn't find any evidence of collusion
no evidence of collusion or there is no evidence of collusion between the russians and the trump campaign but at this point what's not proven is the idea of collusion that's correct still no evidence but the media keeps pushing the story project veritas that leaked the recent video says that c.n.n. has mentioned trump in russia roughly sixteen thousand times you would think people might get bored with the subject by now are you tired of hearing about trump in russia yes actually yes that's all i hear about it it's just getting tiring we're all exhausted however however it has to be it has to be that the truth has to come out and the truth is that there was interference in the american electorate system but by the sentiment you feel like this is what the american people want to see on t.v. is they want to hear about trump allegedly working with russia. not me not a my friend i think they would that something. if if there is something secret about something people want to know even more so if you just bring it out in the
open if there is something you'll come out if it's not then it's just go away and you feel like the media should be reporting on this more or less less and like to hear where these sources are coming from or who's saying it spares i know it could next door neighbor they don't have proof they need to drop it now the c.n.n. producer allegedly said that they keep pushing the story because of the ratings however a lot of the americans we spoke to said they'd rather watch something else cable mopp and aren't seeing washington d.c. . back to the c.n.n. video released by project for its house the network issued a statement saying they stand by their producer on welcome diversity of opinion a white house spokesperson was asked about it on a news conference and it could further undermine trust in the media i think if it is accurate i think it's a disgrace to all of media to all of journalism i think that we have gone to
a place where. if the media can't be trusted to report the news then that's a dangerous place for america you has mentioned the group which released the video is called project. its work is proving highly controversial particularly in the past it's been accused of violating wiretapping rolls it's facing a million dollar lawsuit after it released hidden camera conversations with democratic party workers the scuffing voter fraud well the group has also been accused of misleading the public with flawed editing of its videos project dismisses the lawsuit timid ation. we challenge the group's communications director on their controversial tactics. we weren't specifically looking for this angle but we mean this is a general area we were going we didn't know exactly what would catch we caught it the only way to get to the truth sometimes is with undercover video which has a very rich and long and proud tradition undercover investigations of obtaining the
truth on other mechanisms fail people are not going to sit up there and brag on the podium that we're corrupt i'm not expecting a backlash from this particular video because we followed the law we're told what the letter and the intent of the law was how we obtained today to go obviously we're not going to tell you what's coming up or who it is that targets are but we have many targets in the mainstream media that we're actively working on and we'll have more on c.n.n. coming sometime very soon when it's not only russian hackers the author accused of meddling in the u.s. election russian media outlets including this channel received a lot of attention in congress some lawmakers in america believe it's the kremlin's main propaganda tool. but run propaganda machine contributed to the influence campaign by serving as a platform for criminal messaging using russian government funded outlets russian propaganda media outlets like r t i think it's a propaganda arm of government is definitely not on our side reports have it that
russia not only wanted to weigh in in the election with they also want to undermine u.s. confidence the citizens confidence in our electoral process and in our democratic values. all right let's talk football now we're england's world cup bidding team has been implicated in a corruption scandal over its failed bid to host the twenty eight thousand tournaments a fee for reports also names former u.k. prime minister david cameron and prince william who are a part and plea at a meeting where of swapping was discussed with the story here's unless the cia check into. well definitely big names mentioned and lots of curious little dramatic details about courtship attempts of football executives and the bidding parties involved for starters yes there is mention of prince william apparently having been present at a one of the meetings where allegedly david cameron had suggested to south korean
officials that they could vote for each other apparently according to this room report these promises were made but never kept and south korean official according to the report had denied that this happened but according to garcia who was investigating these issues for two years of the if this would have been in violation of anti collusion rules so certainly some questions there but among some of the other more really curious requests that have been put in front of the english bidding team are quite interesting to say the least for starters there was talk of potentially meeting with the queen in return for support there was. english officials our school for helping with obtaining honorary knighthood helped with a job for a friend's son as well as one of through fifa official from a caribbean nation requesting that his hometown be twinned with an english village
so certainly lots of interesting suggestions apparently going out around with all this drama and greed of getting the grip on the world cups of twenty thousand and twenty twenty two but of course as we know in the end it was russian qatar that ended up getting those world cups and for them it's good news because they continue to can continue preparing and peace now despite previous rumors and sort of discussions in the media that they're going to be somehow implicated in this report that has not happened with any kind of fears of that happening being raced with the details that were presented in this four hundred report. payloads. interesting detail all not well to discuss the scandal further i'm joined by a board member of the russian football union alexander is old toff you're very welcome to the program first of all how serious are these allegations. well they sound really serious to me i mean if if everything that is said in this report is true then we have a situation where. very high ranking people in the u.k.
were trying to buy. the world. to be hosted in the in the u.k. so i mean it's a big scandal i think. the report was finished i believe in twenty forty and just reading through some of the details here but was kept secret or it wasn't made available until no why do you think it wasn't made public and media play three years ago. why i don't know i mean it's hard for me to speculate i understand that it was made public and now only because there was. one the newspaper that was about to publish it so that's why it's appeared now why it was kept for three years i don't know but i'm sure there are a lot of secrets like that lying on the carpet and we will find them out maybe later but i'm sure there's a lot of things like that happening around the olympic and. football club it's and
we heard lots of stories like that in salt lake city in the states and now we're hearing about this story about the crown prince and the prime minister of u.k. trying to buy the vote so i mean it's it's something that probably everybody is trying to keep secret but in the end it eventually it comes out do you expect any action to be taken against the english football association or the individuals involved. i'm sure if it was a situation involving rochelle. sure would have been fun to shell and i think that the standards have to be equal for everybody and they've distilleries true and it looks like it's true but if that's true then. the f.a. has to i mean they're not even if a but the probably do the old english football has to pay some price for that i mean i'm sure that. as i said that the any other country would have. i mean your
guts punished for that. in another interesting aspect to the reports russia and guitar were actually cleared of bribery allegations do you think this is going to put an end to calls for them to be stripped of their rights to host the next two world cups is the is the chorus of condemnation going to be quieted. i'm sure that the situation and i don't know about qatar but i think the day attempts to strip russia of hosting the world the twenty eighteen world cup will and only with the last whistle of the game of the world cup unfortunately the campaign is. is i think. does not allow it to be finished in the end then you point until the day the world cup finishes i think there's a somebody is paying for that probably or somebody is interested in it so it will
and. this is how. the economy is built around. washington washington. over voters elected the businessman to run this country business equals. boom bust it's not business as usual it's business like it's never been done before. hello again officials in the u.s. administration are under pressure to reveal evidence that led to him to claim the syrian military is preparing a chemical weapons attack the state department spokesperson refused to be droll when she was quizzed by the allegations by reporters because have evidence to share
with us about this potential preparation for the use of chemical weapons because that wasn't actually played out right and nor would that be laid out because that would be considered an intelligence matter when you guys believe that it's in your interests you do what you say it's evidence of truthful things that all intelligence i'm not going to get into that one with you but this is that a very serious and grave matter any attacks on the syrian people you know we will be blamed you know on the sea and the russians why i find out this is obviously a complex war with the right number of actors yet you're right leading isis. it seems like it is rather a nuanced comment what would you find out who exactly you know was responsible for all fronts on the u.k. have pledged to support an american attack on syrian government forces artie's murat looks at why washington seems to be putting punishment before due process.
but shah saad has one really bad habit and that habit is and you need does this when he's winning he ruined everything by doing something really stupid for no reason at all. like launching a chemical attack on and then consequential village in the middle of nowhere we're going by washington's narrative here by the way take acids army now they're crushing slavek state liberating vast swaths of syria and out of the blue comes this the united states has identified potential preparations for another chemical weapons attack by the saddam regime as sad knows the probable cause and sequences of a chemical attack it's the only thing really right now that could ruin him by
giving his enemies the opportunity of a pretext to attack him why would he do it because he's evil the murderous syrian dictator bashar assad has been a brutal dictator bashar al assad's a murderous regime in syria assad is the worst kind of brutal war criminal a classic super villain booth stupid and evil beyond any logic the kind of villain batman would go after and america is not mind. if mr assad conducts another mass murder attack using chemical weapons he and his military will pay a heavy price britain is already on board if asked how does something really dumb a new reason again the u.k. will join the us in punishing him we think it's absolutely right if we can to prevent the use of chemical weapons and we will fully support any u.s.
action if you've been following. events in syria recently you know they aren't kidding the united states has attacked asaad five tydings in what they say is self-defense but when they see that they actually mean it u.s. troops would never threaten knew they were defending that isis allies who the syrian army says were never threatened i that the u.s. . allies to the teeth. we have already started to provide the weapons and equipment in the area nation that we said that we would and will continue to provide those two or syrian democratic forces both the syrian arab syrian kurds. the kurds of course are being used by the americans to further american foreign policy and i think it's awful to fall into that strategy is
to attack other forces which model to the united states and which also loyal to were influenced by saudi arabia and the gulf states funded by them in order to maintain an ability to undermine militarily the government of a problem it is justifying a prolonged conflict isn't easy what's the voters don't want another gun who bombing campaign they learned their lesson after the first few times the international community sick of reckless interventions and you left is to wait for asked to give them a cause and since he's a comic book supervillain. it's just a part of the script. security researchers have a partly discovered
a vaccine for the virus which calls the must of global cyber attack on tuesday struck at least ten countries from india to the united states thousands of companies and government agencies have been caught in the run somewhere attack including major energy shipping and banking firms reports first emerged in ukraine and russia which have been worst hit miguel francis santiago has more. industry giants airports and governments no one was apparently safe in the latest mass cyber attack the plague started in russia and ukraine and spread globally in a matter of hours moscow based oil giant ross sniffed a major advertising firm in the u.k. logistics behemoth moller myers can then mark and prominent companies in spain france and the united states all have fallen under attack by the malware the way it works is it includes everything you have on the computer and then locks it asking for a ransom in the amount of three hundred to five hundred dollars and to infiltrate
the system that uses some well known technology allegedly one from the arsenal of the n.s.a. it appeared a little over a month ago when more than a hundred countries came under attack by the ransomware dubbed want to cry major hospitals across the u.s. and the you couldn't use their computers businesses went down causing havoc it took around twenty four hours to contain that attack this time the fallout seems to be more modest victims are reporting that little damage has been done so far in the case of russia's rosneft for example oil production wasn't even affected still this virus has penetrated servers worldwide again you would think the hackers won't get lucky a third time we don't francis and thiago r.t. meanwhile britain's defense secretary has sent out a tough message to hikers he say's it's possible the u.k. could use military force in response to cyber attacks across lived.
in london hi there polly the defense secretary harsh response i suppose was surprising to many what's behind what's the thinking behind the proposal. yeah well essentially he's said that britain could respond to cyber attacks with conventional weapons and he was speaking at a conference at a security think tank in london just as this huge cyber attack it was spreading across the globe and the head of britain's he sounded this very strong warning to potential attackers by saying that a strike on u.k. systems could invite a response from any to maine as and or cyberspace and britain it is really rather serious about this according to reports in the times the british government has been pushing nato to declare that the alliance should be able to treat a cyber attack against a member state in the same way as a conventional assault by an attack against one member is a d.
and is deemed as an attack against all of them michael fine and didn't really flesh out this idea any further than that one sort of soundbite but already in that one sound by it does sound rather problematic first of all a cyber attack doesn't necessarily have to be perpetrated by a nation state it could be a huge criminal organization or even an individual how you're going to strike those isn't clear and second of all if you take a look over some of the more recent weeks the leaks revelations in particular volt seven which is all about the sorts of hacking tools that the u.s. intelligence has at its disposal it shows that the cia can make cyber attacks look as though they were perpetrated by other countries and if we know that i think it's pretty safe to assume that there are other intelligence agencies that can do the same so ascertaining is responsible for what is
a very difficult if not in some cases impossible process and when you add this possibility of retaliating with conventional weapons into the mix well it might sound like a very strong warning in theory how do you make it work in practice though isn't quite clear by from london poly boy girl. watching the hawks knicks looking up the latest scandal over c n n's coverage of presidential. boss alone the dubrovnik in venice are all fixed travel destinations so it must be nice to live there or is it. the crowds of tourists disrupt the city's economic and social life giving them

greetings and salyut asians oh goodness goodness gracious c.n.n. you just can't seem to catch a break these days ken you within days of getting caught with their journalistic pants down after miss reporting last week that the trump transition team member and wonderful wall street type anthony scot removed she was meeting with the chief executive of a russian business fund just four days before trump's inauguration. a story that turned out not to be all that accurate then saw the firings sorry resigning of three veteran c.n.n.
journalist thomas frank eric looked brown lex haris now it appears that c.n.n. has found themselves a victim to one james o'keefe yaz that james o'keefe you remember him the acorn pimp scandal fame that guy seems the controversial right wing i am. journalist if you believe manipulative editing and staged events that would make such a burn cone cover his eyes and shame could be called journalism and that guy has captured one of siemens many producers spilling the beans on their obsession with all things trump and russia on c.n.n. constantly in. russia this pressure that this is ratings this ratings raiser at all right. that was c.n.n. medical producer jon bon a field in the rest of the video john goes on to wax poetic on the lack of hard evidence of russian hacking and from collusion claims.
